OPINION Editorial

A little kindness can go far There are people who watch life go by and there are others who live it to the fullest. In the last couple of weeks, the community of Ventura lost two of the latter. Helen Yunker died on July 28 at 96 and Chingchai “Chang” Liampetchakul died on Aug. 1 at 60. Both Yunker and Chang were known for their outgoing personalities and giving spirits. To learn more about them, see page 8. With both of them gone, the community has responded with a sense of deep sadness and loss. For anyone who knew Yunker and/or Chang, they would want their friends to be anything but sad. Life is for living it. It’s easy to get sidetracked and despondent during these times of uncertainty. Politics and natural disasters have many of us on edge, prosperity seems harder and harder to achieve, setting goals may be taking a back seat to just keeping up with the day-to-day demands, but to live life as if it’s so fragile that one cannot enjoy it is the wrong approach. While not everyone is gregarious and driven to live a life of adventure, resetting one’s perspective to the spirit of giving

Do some good

‘‘L

ast Resort” article, Reporter, July 12, Thomas Fire refugees story While I feel badly for the Gutierrez family that lost it all and ended up in a motor home for the time being, the Reporter neglected to mention hundreds of homeless folks in Ventura County that did not lose their dwellings during the December 2017 Thomas fire, but lost it all years ago. What I find most troubling about this story is lack of fact, that with over 45 “agencies,” public and private agencies in Ventura and Santa Barbara combined, there was no reporting on the fact that 99 percent of the long term homeless folks in Ventura county receive little or no help from paper-pushers that do nothing but collect data for various government and private agencies. Yes, there are food pantries and a certain amount of health services, but then it stops there. The folks that lost it all during the devastating December Thomas Fire did collect a small amount of funding for RVs and trailers, and a few found funds to replace their homes, but a large contingency of chronically homeless remain out on the streets — with little or no help at all. What Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties needs is real and vital resuscitation for homeless vets, disabled and elderly folks that have not been lucky enough to gain from losses. The counties of Ventura and Santa Barbara alike have long ignored the plight and needs of people that are simply down on their luck. Plus, if one is saying to themselves, “Why don’t these people just find a job?,” well, they can’t — most are disabled one way or another and unable to work and in many cases cannot pay rent. In a good “Christian society” where is the

and offering kindness may be one way to jump-start the internal engine. Though not everyone has money to give or even time to donate to charity, looking for opportunities to help others is not hard. In fact, it’s happening everywhere. Offering to give another person your place in line, or picking up an item that dropped to the floor, or buying a homeless person lunch, or even asking the clerk in line how his or her day is going is a good start. Connecting with others even when it’s not necessary could spark a warmer world where the value of our lives starts to increase just by acknowledging someone else’s. It’s not hard, and the most trivial acts of kindness can go a long way. Most importantly, however, take advantage of the resources available before they are gone. Those blessed to have been engaged with Yunker and or Chang understand what that means. Life is too short not to value the living among us. One never knows the treasures that could be unlocked with a little care for another. Let today be the first day you set out to show genuine interest, even if limited, in some of those who cross your path.

Contradictions Confused? Does President Trump believe our intelligence community that the Russians “meddled” in our 2016 election or not? It’s kind of like Melania’s jacket when she was sent to immigrant centers to do “damage control” after the cruel separation of children from their asylum-seeking parents: in transit, a message of “who cares” to the base but a show of concern at the site, having it both ways. And now, to Putin’s face, a signal he might continue hacking and manufacturing bots by the hundred thousands, sowing dissension on our social media, then a “misspoke” denial to damp down the outcry from both domestic allies and adversaries.   After all there’s another election this November.   Has the president taken a single action to counteract the clear threat to our cybersecurity uncovered by our intelligence people? 

Touched my heart

Margaret Morris Ventura

Your cover story entitled “Grounding effect” (Cover feature, July 19) touched my heart so much. I was able to relate to it from beginning to end. Gardening for me is my happy and peacefulness place. I block out everything and focus on the tasks I’m doing in my garden. I have something to put my all into and it definitely gives a sense of pride and ownership.

The author of the article really got everything spot on, and I am happy that it was done. More communities really need to consider getting more people involved in this or even starting up some support group where you can talk about things (like anxiety or depression), get advice and garden at the same time. Maybe it could help reduce people being so heartless and mean and increase compassion. Debbie C. Ventura

news In Brief COUNTY WANTS OPINION ON BUS FARE INCREASES

The Ventura County Transportation Commission is considering a plan to raise fares over a two-year period, but before doing so, the commission wants to hear from you. The VCTC says that the fare increase is needed to cover the increasing costs of service, noting that the last time fares were adjusted was 2011. “It is important for VCTC’s customers and other interested parties to give us their feedback at this juncture,” said Darren Kettle, VCTC Executive Director. “As the Commission explores options for ensuring the Intercity bus system remains financially sound, we need to hear from the people who ride.” The VCTC is taking input through Friday, Sept. 7, via an online survey in both English and Spanish, email, phone or mail.

COURSE ON SELF DEFENSE GIVEN TO VENTURA CAREGIVERS

Oxnard Police Detective Jeff Kay proposed and helped launch a new website to help solve cold cases.

Virtual hope for cold cases

Oxnard Police Department launches website to help solve 178 cold cases

by David Michael Courtland pariah42@yahoo.com

O

xnard Police Detective Jeff Kay hears regularly from the families of murder victims concerned that their loved ones have been forgotten. “I’ll get emails at Christmastime or the anniversary of their deaths,” Kay said, recalling one victim’s mother. “I told her, that case book will always be on my desk. It’s been there 11 years.” One of six detectives already busy working on the eight murders that have happened this year —including three in less than 24 hours on June 27 — Kay carves out time for cold cases when he’s able. “I like to work cold cases when I can. You stop and start as things come up,” said Kay, who proposed the new cold case homicide website that OPD launched on July 12. Kay hopes that reading details of the murders will trigger memories in people who may have seen or heard something but didn’t come forward at the time. “I’ve already got people calling me up,” Kay said one day later on July 13, when there were still only 30 cases profiled on the site. “I’m adding to this daily. I didn’t want to wait; every day counts.” Kay says that the site, coldcase.oxnardpd.org, will eventually feature descriptions of 178 unsolved Oxnard murders dat-

ing from 1966 to 2012. “I want people to be informed because, over the years, they remember things,” said Kay, who has been going to community meetings to promote the website. “If I can spend 30 minutes to get the word out, then maybe somebody will remember something,” said Kay, adding that he’d love to solve all 178 murders. Kay says that the biggest challenge in getting people to talk is their concern that getting involved puts them at risk. “I know a lot of people are really concerned about having their name out there,” Kay said. “If you tell me something in confidence, it stays between us.” Kay says that if the site leads to even one case being closed it will be worth it, because one of the worst parts of his job is telling a mother her son has died but being unable to tell them the things they want to know. “Did they suffer? They want to know these things, and I can’t always tell them,” because the case is still active, Kay said. If it turns out the murderer is dead, “We can at least tell them how it happened. They’ll have the closure of that,” said Kay. Kay says that he has seen murders split families in two, leading to divorces and children without parents. He still has the card from a 6-year-old girl thanking him for investigating

The calculated foot of a karate kick will be coming to a criminal’s temple near you if the staff of Cypress Place Senior Living in Ventura has anything to say about it. On Tuesday, Aug. 14, staff will be given instruction on how to take down an assailant, defend themselves against weaponwielding baddies, including active shooters, and special instruction on how to use the high-tech Defense Alert Device, all courtesy of Senior Law Enforcement Officer Gloria Marcott and TigerLight. TigerLight’s Defense Alert Device combines nonlethal pepper spray with a GPS locating device. When used, the device ejects the spray deterrent as well as sending an emergency text message to employees at the Senior Living Center. Marcott, who has 15 years of experience as a law enforcement officer and is a master instructor for TigerLight, says that the course is designed to teach individuals how to deal with the “active threat at the time” rather than any specific threat, such as a shooter. “Being prepared is incumbent on all of us,” said Marcott. “We have the duty to take care of those within that facility and ourselves, and we have to focus on it, unfortunately.” For more information on TigerLight, visit www.tigerlight.net.

OXNARD INSTALLS AERATORS IN CHANNEL ISLANDS HARBOR Bubble bubble, toil and — cleaner water? Recent water quality concerns at the Channel Islands Harbor have led the county to install underwater aerators in hopes of improving circulation, which will increase dissolved oxygen levels. On June 18, the city of Oxnard received complaints regarding the odor and appearance of water in the Channel Islands Harbor. Callers claimed that the water had a murky brown color and produced a strong smell, but after thorough testing, the waters were deemed safe. The aerators will release compressed air into the area. The only sign of the underwater machines’ activity will be bubbles appearing on the surface. Officials say that it is safe to swim and drive a boat as the aerators operate.

FOSTER CARE SUMMIT COMES TO OXNARD

For families with questions, comments or concerns regarding the potential of being a foster family, the upcoming Foster Care Summit could provide an answer. Child Hope Services and Foster VC Kids will host a Foster Care Summit, Saturday, Aug. 11, in Oxnard, where community members will learn the ins and outs of becoming a resource family, foster parents or adoptive family. Special guest speakers will include Jason Johnson, director of the National Church Ministry Initiative with Christian Alliance for Orphans and author of ALL IN Orphan Care; Chelsea Cameron, who was adopted herself; and representatives from both Child Hope Services and Foster VC Kids. The summit will take place at Calvary Chapel Oxnard, 1925 Eastman Ave., Oxnard from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. For more information, visit www.childhopeservices. org/2018fostercaresummit. — Chris O’Neal

Crime Roundup VIDEO: OXNARD OFFICER IN ALTERCATION WITH SUSPECT BEFORE SHOOTING

Video released on Friday, Aug. 3, shows a violent altercation between an Oxnard police officer and a suspect during which an officer-involved shooting occurred. Oxnard Police Officer Daniel Oncea was on patrol around the Royal Duke Mobile Estates near North Rose Avenue in Oxnard when he saw Joel Tapia Jr. who had outstanding warrants. Video shows Oncea making contact with Tapia and attempting to place the suspect under arrest when a scuffle ensues. Oncea and Tapia end up on the street, wrestling for several minutes as onlookers watch. Oncea’s revolver becomes dislodged from his belt and the officer retrieves it, firing once, hitting Tapia in the arm. Tapia fled the scene and barricaded himself inside his home. SWAT and responding officers forced entry into the home and arrested Tapia, who was booked into the Ventura County Jail, where he faces charges of resisting arrest, assaulting a police officer and more stemming from his previous warrants.

STEROIDS, GUNS SEIZED FROM VENTURA MAN

On Aug. 2, Ventura County Sheriff’s East County Street Team stopped Ventura resident Dustin Kim, 29, in relation to the sale of illegal steroids and found more than had

been expected. The stop took place at the corner of Spinnaker and Navigator drives near the Ventura Harbor. When officers searched Kim’s vehicle, the found two handguns, which led to a search warrant for Kim’s place of business, which was served via the Street Team, Pharmaceutical Unit, and Camarillo DUSTIN KIM Police Special Enforcement Detail. Officers searched the business on the 2000 block of Palma Drive in Ventura and a residence located on the 10,000 block of Orange Circle. At the business, officers discovered a “significant amount of illegal steroids” and evidence related to the sale of illegal steroids, as well as a loaded handgun and currency. At the residence, detectives seized handguns, rifles, cash and more illegal steroids. Over 100 vials and 1,600 pills of illegal steroids were seized in all. A total of five handguns, a shotgun, an assault-style rifle and ammunition, including high-capacity magazines, were also seized, as well as a large sum of cash that detectives believe to be proceeds from illegal sales. Kim was booked into the Ventura County Jail, arrested for possession for sale of an illegal substance. — Chris ONeal

Kindness Corner BBQ FOR ALL Community Action of Ventura County has once again hosted the People’s BBQ, with 130 individuals in attendance. The event, which took place on Thursday, Aug. 1, is the brainchild of Victor Ortiz, a graduate of the Ventura County Rescue Mission program who went on to become a licensed barber and later began volunteering at Community Action to cut hair for clients. The third annual People’s BBQ featured food, music, guest speakers and free haircuts. “Jesus reached through the fire and brought me out,” Ortiz told Cynder Sinclair, Community Action’s executive director, “so now I try to be an example by feeding hope to those who are down and out like I was. I want them to know God has a plan for them.” For more information, visit www.ca-vc.org. — Chris ONeal

COLD Continued from Page 6 her father’s murder. “It’s still an open case,” Kay said. “Imagine growing up not knowing how your father died.” Kay says that the idea for the website came from his own experience as a cold-case investigator, which began with a 1979 murder that had gone unsolved despite DNA evidence. Kay closed the case after realizing that the key to solving it was talking to someone that investigators hadn’t interviewed before. “That’s when I realized that you can have all the DNA in the world, but it’s people that solve cases,” said Kay. “I realized I needed to talk to people; that gave me the idea for the website.” So Kay talked to one of the department’s Internet technology staff, who produced a demonstration for Chief Scott Whitney and Assistant Chief Eric Sonstegard, who in turn told Kay to go forward with the project. Sonstegard says that one of the advantages

of the website is that it doesn’t take up much of the department’s resources. “We funded two cold-case investigators in 2012 who worked with the Sheriff’s Office coldcase unit,” said Sonstegard, “but we’ve gone through some lean years and had to reassign them.” But despite budget cuts the department still feels an obligation to the families of victims to solve cold homicides, said Sonstegard. “When it comes to cold cases we’re always believing there’s a responsibility, even if it’s 30 years old, to bring some closure to the family,” said Sonstegard. “So we’re always juggling resources back and forth.” Gloria Maynard says that sense of commitment from Kay as well as the launching of the website have given her more hope than she has had in a long time that her daughter’s murder will be solved. “Det. Kay seems so interested and knowledgeable,” said Maynard. “Over the years I’ve had others who weren’t; one even told me not to call him anymore.” Maynard’s daughter, Lisa Gondek, was killed in December 1981 shortly after moving

to Oxnard from Connecticut. She was found strangled and posed erotically in the bathtub of her Oxnard apartment after going dancing at Huntington’s nightclub the previous night. The killer — who had also raped Gondek — set the apartment on fire, leaving only one clue to his identity for detectives: DNA from a bite mark. Oxnard investigators focused on one suspect who was later exonerated when the DNA was tested. The killer’s DNA does not match any in criminal databases. “They were so sure it was one person, I don’t think they looked any more,” said Maynard, who says investigators didn’t talk to the club’s owner or staff. “Why would I spend money on Lisa’s case when I already know who did it?” Maynard says Oxnard’s then-police chief asked her when she complained. He told her there was no money for cold cases. “The first two detectives were nice and considerate,” said Maynard. “The next few, after I hung up, I knew they just forgot that I called.” She grew so frustrated that she asked

California’s attorney general to investigate the department. “After that they said they wouldn’t talk to me anymore,” Maynard said. Ten years after Lisa’s death, Maynard learned that her daughter wasn’t the killer’s only victim; 11 months earlier Rachel Zendejas was murdered outside ther Camarillo apartment. Like Lisa Gondek, Zendejas was raped and strangled — and she had also been at Huntington’s the night she died. Investigators didn’t make the connection between the two murders until DNA technology grew more advanced. Maynard says that Lisa was very friendly and probably talked to her killer. She thinks someone at the club that night may have seen them together, which is why the website makes her very hopeful. “It’s been so long, but there may be somebody out there who has the conscience they didn’t have then,” said Maynard. “They’ll come forward and help solve it.” For more information go to coldcase.

Not forgotten

BY MICHAEL SULLIVAN | MICHAEL@VCREPORTER.COM

CHINGCHAI LIAMPETCHAKUL

C

hingchai Liampetchakul, better known as Chang, was a rebel with a cause, a truly oneof-a-kind character. He aimed to live the American Dream to its fullest extent and, according to Maycie and April, his daughters, he did just that including being the owner and operator of one of the longest running restaurants in downtown Ventura, Tipps Thai. His No. 1 favorite quote: Just do it, spoken with his unique accent. He was born April 22, 1958, in Bangkok, Thailand, the youngest of nine siblings. His official recorded birthdate was June 10, according to his mother, Mui Liang, a Chinese immigrant in Bangkok, who relayed that story to the grandchildren. In order to avoid punishment for not recording the birth in a timely manner, she made up the birthdate closer to the day that she arrived to officially record it. At 16, Chang left Bangkok, following the rest of his siblings to the U.S. — his mother would also come to the U.S. — where they started picking up work close to where they literally landed and got off the plane, West L.A. and Santa Monica. Chang, best known for his lust for life, worked all sorts of jobs before opening Tipps Thai: mechanic, seamster and truck driver, to name a few. Chang moved from L.A. to Port Hueneme and finally to Ventura where he got a job washing dishes at a Thai restaurant that would soon become Tipps Thai. In 1982, Chang married Patcharee Katavetiskul in 1982. “His older brother, White, invited us to a Christmas party in 1981 where I met Chang,” said Patcharee. In March 1983, Chang, along with two of his sisters, Mui and Saitip, opened Tipps Thai in downtown Ventura where they remained for the next 34 years. Tipps Thai closed in 2017.  “When we opened the restaurant, we had our reception on our first anniversary,” Patcharee said. “As crazy as he was, he was a good man and a good provider.” What happened after the opening of Tipps Thai was a whirlwind of adventures. His daughters were born, April in 1987 and then Maycie in 1990. Chang and nine members of his large family, including his mother, wife, two daughters and two cousins, shared a two-bedroom house next to

the Carl’s Jr. on Thompson Boulevard. By 1996, Tipps Thai was doing so well that the family moved to a house on Skyline Road above Arroyo Verde Park. The daughters called the time period from 1996-2008 the “Golden Years.” Chang wasn’t just known for Tipps Thai, but also for riding horses like a cowboy above La Conchita (he also lost a friend in the landslide), windsurfing along the coast, and snowboarding. The daughters laughed about how badly he scarred his knees due to his wild dance moves, “He was a party animal.” F r o m Tipps Thai to Golden C h i n a , Chang was all about having fun the best way he knew how; he also loved a beer or two, maybe more. His lively spirit kept a certain pulse alive for a long time in Downtown. He even dressed like a parking meter for Halloween in 2010. Perhaps his ability to have fun and impart joy to any activity is why so many couples held their weddings and various other important events at his restaurant. He cultivated many true and strong friendships with the community, including JD Drury, widely known for singing with Raging Arb and the Redheads and putting on the Surf Rodeo, Ross Emery of the Roadshow Revival and George Christie. One thing was clear: Chang was always ready to help when he could. “He once ran down the street with a plunger to loan it to a neighbor,” Maycie said with a smile. He also donated time, food and money to different charities such as the Lions Club and Community Memorial Hospital. The last year and a half of his life was surely the most trying, especially after years of coping with the recession that had hit his business rather hard. In February 2017, Chang suffered a stroke, landing him in the hospital, but the community rallied around him to help with the financial support due to medical bills.

elen Yunker is, no doubt, a legend in Ventura. Over her lifetime, practically to her last days at 96 years old, she accumulated a prolific résumé. Born in Chicago on Sept. 3, 1921, she worked in sales from Chicago to California and landed in Ventura in 1958. She ran a successful real estate business, starting in 1979, and it remains today at the corner of Pierpont Boulevard and Seaward Avenue. She has practically an endless list of philanthropic efforts, which included scholarships for underprivileged students to various arts programs at Ventura College. Due to her fundraising efforts to renovate the science building and performing arts center, the college renamed the center the Helen Yunker Auditorium. Her philanthropy reach was broad and enduring over the span of her life. And while it’s easy to see her passion for ensuring that the less fortunate had access to all sorts of important and vital programs, it was her gregariousness and flamboyance that stole the show. “She was always a lot of fun, an indomitable spirit, very strong image of herself,” said Kathleen Noblin of Ballet Academy of Ventura, noting her outgoing performance as the maid at the beginning of the Nutcracker for the last eight years. “She loved performing, loved being the center of attention. She was so much fun.” Yunker not only put her money where her mouth was as a strong supporter of the arts, but she was practically unstoppable when it came to entertaining, performing and lifting spirits. “She was never pushy,” Noblin said. “She had the Helen Touch. It was like, ‘Notice me, here I am, I am having a great time.’ ” Cynthia Loughman, friend and colleague for the last 40 years, remembers the great adventures and life of Yunker. “She was a showman. She knew what she was doing every single second. Everything was going into that black book of hers. She even took time to sing at her own funeral,” and funeral attendees will, in fact, hear a recording that Yunker made for it. “She is the only one who could spend an entire afternoon on stage and come up with new material every minute. You could not

get that microphone out of her hand. It was funny, authentic, entertaining, brilliant,” Loughman said. Yunker attended church in Ventura every Sunday for over 50 years, singing in the choir. Loughman fondly remembers organizing a group with Yunker, called the Ole Hens. “I started Ole Hens group, five of us at happy hour. She loved The Sportsman. We were going for years, every Friday, as much as could happen. Unless I had something else, Fridays were known for a glass of wine. That was very special to her, going out on Friday. We would say, ‘Ready to cluck?’ ” Yunker was also known for her welcoming spirit. “Everybody knew, if anyone gave her the slightest bit of interest, she would make them feel she had known them a lifetime,” Loughman said. As for Yunker’s personal quirks,“She was extraordinarily organized and yet she would be ready to do something on the spur of the moment. She had no tolerance for being late. “She loved all things of entertainment, [especially] theater.” Loughman said that although Yunker had macular degeneration, “She was almost blind, couldn’t see much of anything, she enjoyed music. She would go to plays just to go to listen to them but she would make a fuss if it was loud and foul.” And yet that didn’t stop her from telling her own offensive jokes. “She would tell foul jokes — she would grab a mic and, first thing, say that joke I told her not to tell. I mean, it was raw and it wasn’t appropriate. She was old and she could do what she wanted. She picked her skirt up and showed her legs because she had beautiful legs. She just wanted to have fun.” While Yunker never married or had children, she gave the world a true show, enabled the downtrodden and created pathways for others to accomplish great things. “She was always upbeat,” Loughman said. “If I was feeling down, worn, she would give me a call. It wasn’t what she said, it was her attitude toward life. You didn’t want to disappoint her by dragging her down,

CREATIVEMINDS Local inventors make life a little easier, the environment a little better BY ALICIA DOYLE | ALICIA@ALICIADOYLE.COM Some of the latest inventions were conceived right here in Ventura County, including skateboards made from recycled fishing nets, grip holders for those with arthritis and people who have lost limbs, and a vertical pool that can aid in recovery for wounded veterans, the physically challenged and the elderly. Here’s a glimpse of some of the most recent inventions created by local residents that are making a positive difference.

RECYCLED FISHING NETS

Discarded fishing nets make up an estimated 10 percent of plastic in the ocean and have been found to be four times more harmful than all other forms of plastic pollution. Bureo, based in the United States and Chile, is focused on finding solutions for the growing issue of plastic pollution in our oceans and initiating social change. This is achieved through Bureo’s Net+Positiva program, which works together with fishermen to provide a positive solution for their end-of-life fishing gear, which Bureo transforms into highly recyclable and durable raw materials. “Our first product constructed from recycled fishing nets was a cruiser skateboard, [composed] of over 30 square feet of recycled fishing nets,” said David Stover of Ventura, Bureo’s co-founder and CEO. “We now make a number of products from recycled fishing nets.” Others involved with the invention include Ben Kneppers, Kevin Ahearn and Greg Swienton. This invention provides a solution to the most harmful form of plastic pollution in our ocean, noted Stover, who became aware of the impacts while surfing in Australia and Indonesia, and started on a mission to find a way to make a difference. In 2013, Bureo founded Chile’s first fishing net collection and recycling program, Net+Positiva, with the mission to provide fishermen access to fishnet waste disposal points along the coast of Chile as a means to prevent ocean pollution. “We are showing the value in previously discarded waste,” Stover said. “By utilizing recycled fishing nets to construct premium products, we are building longlife products with end-of-life solutions.” For instance, Bureo joined forces with Costa Sunglasses to incorporate recycled fishing nets into a new line of “responsible” sunglasses. Featuring Costa’s patented 580 polarized lens technology in four new styles,

— August 9, 2018

the Untangled Collection frames are constructed from 100 percent recycled fishing nets and are fit with mineral glass lenses — avoiding the use of any new plastic materials. To recycle nets into sunglasses, discarded fishing nets are collected from commercial fishing ports, and Bureo recycles the nets down into a raw material in the form of pellets. The pellets are then molded into The Untangled Collection sunglass frames. Additionally, Jenga® Ocean™ is the first board game made from recycled fishing nets. Jenga Ocean is made from more than 25 square feet of nets sourced through Bureo’s Net Positiva recycling program. Players of the game, which features threatened marine animal block designs, are encouraged to “save the animals” through special edition rules. By learning about the damaging impact of discarded fishing nets, which account for 10 percent of plastic pollution in the ocean, it is hoped that players will gain an understanding of how discarded nets are harming marine animals, and learn about what they can do to help. Above all, “We aim to provide a tangible solution to keep discarded fishing nets out of our ocean and inspire people around the world to join the fight against plastic pollution,” Stover said.


EAZYHOLD GRIP ASSISTS

Invented in 2014, EazyHold is the first and only silicone grip aid that gives people with limited or no grasp — due to challenges like finger or limb loss — the ability to hold anything, from items as small as a baby spoon to a boat oar. EazyHold was invented by Kerry Mellin, along with her business partners and sisters, Merrily Mellin and Wendy Mellin, who all live in Simi Valley. “Made of super adaptable soft stretchy silicone, it’s the first and only grip assist that helps you to get an effortless, reliable hold on anything that requires a firm grasp and a repetitive motion,” Kerry Mellin explained. These include things like eating utensils, cups and baby bottles, sports equipment, garden implements, musical instruments, kitchen and household tools — just about anything. “While there are a few other grip assists on the market, they are all made with materials that are not sanitary nor easy to clean, and can harbor and transmit bacteria,” Kerry said. “We are the first and only universal cuff that’s made of superhygienic foodgrade silicone, which can be easily washed and dried at high temperatures, or cleaned with a disinfectant wipe, so that it can be used and reused by multiple people,” she noted. “This makes it perfect for settings where hygiene is crucial, such as hospitals, schools and convalescent and home care.” The inspiration behind the invention came about in 2014 during her annual family ranch party in Simi Valley. “I found myself having a hard time gripping onto the broom because of the arthritis in my thumbs and each sweep became more painful,” Kerry recalled. As a lifelong cowgirl, she hated to think that simply sweeping out her barn would be something she could no longer do, “so with family due to arrive shortly, I grabbed some duct tape, made a sticky loop across the broom handle and slipped my hand inside.” Surprised at how effortless it felt, having this little bit of support over the back of her hand allowed her to maintain control of the broom with minimal grip — and a lot less pain. “Later at the party I told my sisters about having to tape my hand to the broom — it gave us all a good laugh but we realized in that moment that it wasn’t really a laughing matter,” she said. With a history of arthritis in her family, “We also recognized the huge population of baby boomers on the horizon, all with the same issue and all wanting to stay active and engaged in life.” With that, “We decided right then and there to innovate a new grip aid for all kinds of activities in and out of the house, and for all shapes and sizes of people and equipment,” she said. “So with great excitement for our new idea, we started working on prototypes the very next day.” What started as simply a way to help people with arthritis evolved into so much more. Because EazyHold is inexpensive and requires no learning curve, “When we now visit hospitals, therapy and pediatric centers, we’ve found that our EazyHolds are becoming a staple … for rehabilitation of those with cerebral palsy, Parkinson’s disease, ALS, stroke, limb loss, spinal injuries and many other disabilities that cause poor fine motor skills and limit a person’s grip,” Kerry Mellin said.  For adults, being able to do for one self allows for a full, dignified, independent life, she further emphasized. “But most profoundly is the difference we see we are making to children in the special-needs classroom,” she said. “Many classrooms cannot afford all the supplies they need no matter how little the cost,” she added, “so our ultimate goal is to be able to inexpensively provide a bucket of EazyHolds for every classroom who needs them, and for every child that can’t independently hold a spoon or a crayon — or even an action figure — without a little help.” For more information, visit https://eazyhold.com/

THE VERTICAL POOL

The Vertical Pool was inspired by the anticipated need of the returning wounded veterans of all past conflicts — as well as any and all physically challenged — who have limited options for recovery, healing and hygiene. The verticality aspect is the No. 1 virtue of this DME (durable medical equipment) device, said Peter G. Hold, who conceived the idea in 2005 as a concept on paper, and sold the first pool in 2011. For those with limited mobility, he said, getting vertical in part of each day is critical to recovery as the body heals best when the spine, organs, muscles, tendons and ligaments are suspended upright in a state of traction — which is achieved in water. “Imagine someone confined to a wheelchair having the ability to get upright in water for any number of movements — legs down, shoulders back, chest out, head up,” said Hold, a resident of Ventura who also owns property in Colorado. Additionally, soaking in sanitized warm water daily could reduce hygienic issues for those who have difficulty accessing a shower or bath. “It may mean the difference between the positive of pain-relief exercisewellbeing and the negative of frustration-depression-stagnation,” Hold said. “Healing pools should be available to every veteran without convoluted forms and wait times. Simply a doctor’s prescription should make one eligible for immediate consideration.” The beaches of Ventura County were Hold’s “office” for the development of this innovation. “I walked miles processing the ins and outs, ups and downs and nuances,” he remembered. “Without Ventura, this device would probably not exist.” The parts of the pool are molded in Southern California, and the plumbing comes from Waterway Plastics in Oxnard. Comprised of multiple light weight parts, which can be crated and shipped anywhere in the world, this pool can be carried into or through existing structures and installed in garages, backyards and basements — and even hillsides. This versatile pool is also efficient in energy, water and space at 6-feet, 2-inches wide by 12 feet long, including the entry steps at the stern, and is under 900 gallons. Features include overhead and underwater grab bars, Hoyer lift access/egress capability and a swim-in-place support frame. Additionally, “The design allows parents, partners, etc., to work with the patient from the outside perimeter of the pool,” Hold said. For instance, “If junior wants to be in the water for three hours, mom can sit beside, but outside the water.” Interestingly, while the vertical pool was created with veterans of any and all conflicts in mind, the market has turned out to be women, Hold noted. “Ninety percent of calls are from women,” he said. Over the past few years, Hold has contacted several women’s organizations in the Ventura area about assembling a collective of women, veterans and veterans’ wives to take over this product vision and nonprofit mission. “As one person, I can’t handle the potential market load,” Hold said. “I’ve put over 500,000 miles on my pickups in the last seven years.” Women can handle every aspect of this product/vision and nonprofit mission, he emphasized. None of the modular components comprising this pool are too cumbersome for two women to carry, load, offload and install. “Onsite assembly takes less than six hours,” Hold said. “This pool is essentially an interlocking erector set.” Imagine a collective of women forming a new company around an existing product, he noted. “We are seeking the start-up capital to form this objective, the women-power to implement it and the professional guidance to assist in constructing a successful business plan,” Hold said. “If you can help in any of these areas or have ideas on how to move this forward, please do jump in.” For more information, call 928-300-9800 ; email info@vetpools.org; or visit www. theverticalpool.com.

Author Scott Harris brings the Old West to life by Mike Nelson There are moments in a man’s life when things change. . . . Sometimes we have control over those moments, and sometimes we don’t. I guess if I’m honest with myself, a part of me thought, “Not my town, not my problem.” And, maybe, ten minutes earlier, I could have ridden out of this town and been on my way. But that was before they hit Huck. I like that boy. — From Coyote Courage

W

hat do Brock Clemons, fictional hero of the Old West, and his creator, marketing executiveturned-western novelist Scott Harris, have in common, besides an affinity for good books and good cigars? “I get asked that a lot,” grins the Westlake Village-based author of four Brock Clemons Western novels that have sold extraordinarily well (nearly 2 million pages’ worth, says Amazon.com) in barely a year’s time. “My friends who’ve read the books say there’s a lot of me in Brock,” continues the 60-year-old Southland native. “My feeling, though, is that Brock is what I wish I was, that he’s the young man I wish I could have been when I was his age. He’s not a saint, he’s not perfect — he’s not really a traditional hero. He’s a complicated guy, like most of us are. “And he’s not happy when he’s faced with killing someone, no matter how justified it is. But he does have a sense of right and wrong, and the courage to stand up for it.” In Coyote Courage and its sequels — Coyote Creek, Coyote Canyon and Battle on the Plateau, just published in May — plenty of readers and fellow western writers have been drawn to Harris’ easygoing writing style and his main character, a 23-year-old man searching the Old

West of 1868 for his father, and finding far more adventure than he expected. While dispatching assorted outlaws and ne’er-do-wells with well-chosen words, well-placed quick-draws or both, Brock falls in love with a little town called Dry Springs and its people, particularly a beautiful, self-assured young woman and a spirited 12-year-old orphaned boy. “Well-developed characters, vivid action scenes, visual descriptions and a fast-moving plot, all told in an extremely easy-to-read style, offer everything a western reader could want from this genre,” wrote Steve Myall of Coyote Courage in Western Fiction Review. Such positive feedback has encouraged Harris into writing more than he ever dreamed of, all centered on a genre linked to a time that many have long romanticized. That includes the Redondo Beach-born, Simi Valley-raised Harris, who studied finance and marketing at California State University, Northridge, “but with no real goal” until a part-

time job selling ads for the Daily Sundial, the campus newspaper, brought Harris into contact with a marketing executive. That led to a career, and in 1986 he opened Mustang Marketing, today one of Ventura County’s leading marketing and PR firms, “in

which I’ve been blessed with great clients and a great staff.” Having recently sold Mustang Marketing, Harris will stay on for one more year, then “retire” to devote his time to family, travel (“Exploring the world is a good habit to have”), reading (“100 books a year if I can”) and writing. That’s not exactly a new pursuit for Harris, who previously penned a weekly political column for the Ventura County Star and wrote a well-received book on strategic marketing. The western genre, though, always fascinated him. “My true joy is to settle into my hammock with a Louis L’Amour book and a good cigar,” he smiles. “And one day, I thought, ‘Why not write one myself ?’ So I wrote Coyote Courage, just to see if I could do it, and it sold a few copies. At that point it was just a hobby. Then I did the second book, and all of a sudden I’m showing up on Amazon’s best-seller lists.” At one point in March, in fact, Harris had three of Amazon’s top 10 best-selling westerns and ranked 57th among all fiction writers, one slot ahead of his idol, John Steinbeck. Having just finished his fourth Clemons book (set in the Grand Canyon), Harris says he’s surprised himself at how much he’s enjoyed the process. “I love developing these characters and getting inside their heads,” he says, “and I love researching the period, the lifestyles, the Native American traditions of the tribes I write about, because I want these stories to be as real as possible.” Harris recently produced Tales of Dry Springs, short stories about characters in the Clemons series (through Dusty Saddle Publishing, which handles numerous western authors). His first children’s book, Isaac and Iggy, is due out in the spring, and he co-curated with Paul Bishop a western anthology, 52 Books, 52 Western Novels: Old Favorites and New Discoveries. He’s also contributed to several western anthologies and is engaged in a series of collaborative projects with other writers, including The Shot Rang Out, in which 52 writers have 500 words each to develop that phrase into a short story. “It’s been a huge thrill to develop camaraderie with other western writers,” he says. Admittedly, he is concerned about the future for all literature. “I wonder if we’re the last generation who really appreciates the written word,” he muses. “What is the future of books? Will they still read books two generations from now? Attention spans get shorter and shorter; you can’t go past 30 seconds on a TV news story. What’s the place of Huckleberry Finn or War and Peace? You’ll always have niche readers, but will it ever be what it was?” It is encouraging and flattering, he says, for people to tell him “that mine was the first novel they’ve read in years, or that they couldn’t put it down. So it’s been a blast to see people buy into these characters. And I’m having tremendous fun with this.” F Scott Harris’ work is available at Amazon. For more information, visit scottharriswest.com.

PLUCKY GAL

Genre-defying EllaHarp will be strumming up a new tune at Ojai Underground Exchange

C

elestial and elegant, attached to an angel’s hip, the harp is an instrument of the ether. Until Ella Dawn Jenkins brings it right back down to earth. The Bay Area harpist, who prefers the name EllaHarp, or just Ella, did Debussy and the rest of the standard harp canon, playing at countless weddings, before she decided to forgo classical and embrace a more “folksy, bluesy, pop” sound. “It’s not what you’re expecting,” Ella said. She sings, too. The resulting plucks paired with her low-key voice sound more like a singersongwriter strumming on a guitar, but with a harp-y heavenly tinge. Ella, who released her 10-years-in-the-making debut album Who Asked You Back in February, will play a concert on Saturday, Aug. 11, at Ojai Underground Exchange. Ella herself is a down-to-earth person. She makes all her own clothes, until recently lived in a tiny house she built herself, and plays an aluminum-frame harp that she and her boyfriend designed so she could travel with it more easily. Ella, who grew up in Malibu and Frazier Park, comes from strong musical stock: Her paternal grandparents were composer-arranger Gordon Jenkins and singer Beverly Mahr; her maternal grandfather was saxophonist Bill Ulyate. Ella, who started playing harp at age 8, said she wishes she had “a better story” for why it became her instrument, “but basically, my mom chose it,” Ella said. “She was looking through a catalog and thought it was cute. It was cheaply made, nothing more than a toy, and she wanted us to be exposed to different instruments.” She also learned to play piano, but said she

— August 9, 2018

preferred the harp because “It’s just more pleasant. To have it resting on you, and the vibrations going throughout your body, it’s such a healing instrument to play.” Ella has traveled many miles to learn how to play the harp. When she first started taking lessons, her mom drove Ella more than 100 miles each week to her teacher. As a teenager she went abroad to study the instrument in a less traditional way at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama (now the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland) in Glasgow. “I realized I learned music best by ear,” Ella said, “and in traditional Scottish music, everything is taught by ear.” Ella studied both harp and song in college. “Who Asked You Back,” she said, “is the culmination of 10 years of songwriting in Scotland and California: a little bluesy, a little sassy and mostly miserable.” Until recently, Ella and her boyfriend lived

in a DIY tiny house. Ella said that she built the tiny house (which she refers to affectionately by female pronouns) after graduating from college “to be a musician and not die from rent.” She dubbed the 120-square-foot house “Little Yellow” because of its bright yellow door. She and her boyfriend lived together in it, with a dog, for five years until October, when they put a down payment on a big(ger) house in Half Moon Bay, and now rent out the tiny house. She’s even worked as a presenter for the Tumbleweed Tiny House Company. “I built my tiny house to make my life easier, and for many years she did exactly that,” Ella wrote on her blog, littleyellowdoor.wordpress. com. “At some point when I quit my ‘day job’ and my home also became my workspace, and my workspace suddenly involved a bunch more harps and a sewing machine and hundreds of yards of fabric and the need for office space and reliable Internet, this gradually became less

and less the case.” Ella, who has always been crafty, started making her own clothing and jewelry in 2015. Her sewing process is similar to her approach to songwriting and playing music: “I don’t use patterns. I make things up as I go.” Ella said she has never performed in Ojai, but visited the area many times while growing up. “We used to drive down there on [Highway] 33 for special occasions like birthdays, and get dinner at Boccali’s,” she said. She’s looking forward to returning. “I just want to see any water in the Sespe and put my toes in it,” she said. So she’s down to earth and water. ✦ EllaHarp performs on Saturday, Aug. 11, at 7:30 p.m. at Ojai Underground Exchange, 1016 W. Ojai Ave., Ojai.

nightmoves The Great Gig at Discovery Reggae collective Easy Star All-Stars has made a name for itself by reimagining the music of renowned artists such as Michael Jackson, Radiohead, The Beatles and more in reggae and dub style. On Friday, Aug. 3, the band performed its first album, 2003’s Dub Side of the Moon (based on Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon) at Discovery. From “Speak to Me” to “Eclipse,” the band brought the audience into its orbit, joining classic rock, prog rock and reggae fans together for one beautiful, beat-driven night of music.

Putting the “art” in artisanal Ex Voto Chocolates and Confections 2646 E. Main St., Ventura 805-667-9228 or www.exvotochocolates.com $2-30

W

hen Trufflehound’s closed in 2015, Ventura found itself sadly bereft of a homegrown artisanal confectioner. So it was with great anticipation that Ex Voto opened its midtown shop (next to Ventura Meat Company) in summer 2017. One look at the display case, with racks of bonbons in a rainbow of colors, all beautifully decorated with artful, abstract designs, and the public knew: Ventura was getting its groove — and its chocolate — back. Ex Voto is the enterprise of the mother-daughter team of Jennifer Smith and Sophia Smith-Grunder. The latter is the wizard whose culinary magic provides Ex Voto with its tempting creations. Smith-Grunder is both chocolatier and artist, making her confections by hand and carefully painting each piece to turn it into an edible work of art. Fans know that every season brings something different, as fresh ingredients — fruit juice and purée, cream infused with herbs and spices, nut butters made from scratch — are employed to fully explore the landscape of flavor. Apple cider, hot chocolate, champagne, pears and even Thai chili have all had their place on the Ex Voto lineup. Right now, with summer fruits in season, it’s no surprise that Ex Voto’s current offerings lean heavily toward ingredients that one might find at the local farmers market. I ordered a five-chocolate sampler with Key lime, passion fruit, lemon, blueberry lavender and bananas Foster bonbons. Beautiful they were, painted in colors that matched their flavors, with sweeps of gold to add a touch of

glamour. Hard chocolate shells encased luscious fillings that packed a lot of punch. The Key lime was like a chocolate-covered slice of pie, and the passion fruit in particular had that fresh-fromthe-orchard taste. Kudos to the bananas Foster, which balanced the rum, caramel and banana flavors perfectly. All were extremely rich, of course, and deeply satisfying . . . as a quality piece of chocolate should be. Chocolates would be enough to earn Ex Voto praise, but the shop’s other claim to fame is its handmade ice cream. Around a dozen (or so) flavors are usually available, and Smith-Grunder gets creative here. Honey buttered toast (a top-seller), honey lavender and roasted strawberry are among the more unusual offerings. Scoops come as singles, doubles and the aptly named “smidge”; toppings and sundaes are also available. For a truly fun and delicious experience, I recommend the ice cream flight: four generous scoops of your choice, placed on a handsome wood paddle. Mine, shared with a 9-year-old, turned out to be a lot of ice cream . . . but at $10, it was a total bargain. Loved the Tahitian Vanilla, which could convert even die-hard chocolate fans, and the banana honeycomb, whose genuine banana flavor stood out. The honey lavender has a loyal following, but it is something of an acquired taste: The lavender essence is quite strong, and I felt like I was eating perfume. The malted milk chocolate was delicate and a little dull compared to its more robust counterparts. When you’re craving something sweet, Ex Voto has it all: creamy gourmet ice cream, the prettiest chocolates you ever saw and even a decent coffee menu (untried by me) with cold brew and iced options. Perfect for these hot summer days, but delicious any time of year. And probably the only place in town where you can eat a work of art. ♦

The Mad Rose features a classic Greek salad with mixed red peppers, olives, cucumber and feta with grilled chicken breast.

Stop and smell the mad roses The Mad Rose 543 E. Main St. | Ventura 805-628-3913 $5-$30

I

talian cuisine and culture is in my blood, literally, and that is why I am more selective with the genre than any other. Coming from Italian-Sicilian heritage, some of my most nostalgic memories are of standing next to my grandmother in the kitchen, barely able to see over the countertop, and being her official taste tester. I can still hear the heavy accent of her native tongue while she sang out, “Mangia, mangia,” holding a spoonful of all-day-simmered red sauce for me to approve. It’s that very reason why I seldom leave an Italian restaurant feeling authentically satisfied. I mean let’s face it, grandma’s culinary shoes are some big ones to fill. So when The Mad Rose moved into the former ATM kiosk next to the movie theater on Main Street, I was somewhat skeptical. Upon my visit, however, the concerns melted away like a rich dollop of butter in the pan. The brainchild of long time Ventura county restauranteur Giovanni Tromba (Table 13, Bistro 13), along with partner Meghan Davy, The Mad Rose is aiming to bring the lighter, healthier side of Italian food to the table. And while the menu features the usual cast of colorful characters, there is a health-conscious construction behind each dish. Combined with a contemporary ambiance and a stunning glass bar top that includes a sea of pennies beneath it, and you get a hip and healthy addition to the burgeoning Main Street foodie scene. The happy hour menu at The Mad Rose is abbreviated, but offers both affordability and quality. As well, the hours are 4-7, giving patrons an extra hour to grab a bite before movie night next door. I decided to go with the two salad options to keep it light and fresh. The first was the caprese with pan-fried salmon, a staple antipasto with a side of protein. The mozzarella was smooth and the tomatoes were sweet, with bursts of basil to accent both,

while the salmon filet was crispy and clean, allowing for the naturally distinct flavor to mesh with the other plate players. The second salad consumed was a classic Greek, which mixed red peppers, olives, cucumber and feta with a grilled chicken breast. It had the typical flavors and emphasized the freshness of the produce more than any other aspect. Both were liberally portioned and also included crispy garlic Parmesan bread, not too shabby for $7.95 each. Wine, beer and sake cocktails are a reasonable $5 as well. Moving on to the main courses, I decided to indulge in two of my favorite Italian dishes. The first was a staple of my grandmother’s, eggplant melanzane. And while most Italian households have their own unique interpretation of this dish, not all reign as supreme as what The Mad Rose offers. Choosing to construct the eggplant in lasagna form, including roasted red and yellow peppers, onions and basil in the fold, the freshness of the veggies alone would have sufficed for an acceptable rendition. The addition of smoked mozzarella slices, however, brought every bite to the foreground of the flavorscape, setting the meal off in a truly incendiary manner. The other half of the entree order was the headliner of the night, though — mushroom and filet mignon risotto. Decadently loaded with multiple mushroom varieties and a generous amount of succulent filet, each bite was better than the previous. And by not drowning the dish in sauce, the texture of the risotto could be appreciated for its distinct taste. It was a work of art and one that I will absolutely be returning to indulge in. Saving room for dessert, and considering that the temperature was in the high 80s that day, there seemed no more appropriate item to choose than the lemon sorbet. Presented as a whole lemon that had been filled with the sorbet and dollops of whipped cream, this sweet and refreshing treat was classily artisan, and a fantastic way to finish off the evening. The Mad Rose is a welcome addition to the Main Street restaurant family, and if I can emphasize one characteristic about Italians, it’s that they’re all about family. So take the advice of my grandmother and go mangia! ♦

The taming of the guru in Wild Wild Country

W The Spy Who Dumped Me Come for the action, stay for Kate

by Dave Randall

daverandall2@gmail.com The Spy Who Dumped Me Directed by Susanna Fogel Starring: Mila Kunis, Kate McKinnon, Justin Theroux, Sam Heughan Rated R for violence, language throughout, some crude sexual material and graphic nudity 1 hr. 57 min.

W

e can be grateful that Hollywood’s longstanding barriers seem to be crumbling. It’s this sort of progress that’s responsible for the all-woman version of Ghostbusters (to mixed reviews and box office apathy); Ocean’s 8, where the ladies pull off the heist; and women superheroes (Wonder Woman and, coming in March 2019, Captain Marvel). This evolution continues in the comedy/action/international intrigue genre with The Spy Who Dumped Me. Make no mistake: It’s a buddy film, filled with violence, F-bombs, bullets, bodies stacked up. And it plunges ever-so-stealthily into that last frontier of R-rated comedies: male reproductive parts on display. Think of it in the mold of 48 Hours or Bad Boys, but with spies and two besties, Audrey (Mila Kunis) and Morgan (Kate McKinnon). The great Jerry Lewis was aging and bitter when he opined that women weren’t funny. His views were probably too ingrained to have been changed by seeing McKinnon in this film, but the delicious irony is that she’s the wise-cracking Jerry to Kunis’ Dean Martin. Come for the violence and the lovely Kunis, laugh with McKinnon. Her one-liners and ad libs are so subtle and so dry, and some are almost drowned out by the next car crash or burst of gunfire. What the story may lack it makes up for with fast-paced action, and the two actresses, especially McKinnon, digging into director Susanna Fogel’s script (written with David Iserson) and flying with it.

‘‘

Audrey and Morgan have been BFFs for 12 years. Audrey’s boyfriend, Drew (Justin Theroux), has recently dumped her via text. After she’s sent him a fusillade of unanswered messages, he finally calls back — in the middle of a heated gun battle. Drew, as it turns out, is a CIA agent on the run. The women then get mixed up with a British MI-6 operative (Sam Heughan) and a Russian criminal organization, Highland, all in hot pursuit of something vital that was once in Drew’s possession. Filmed mainly in Budapest, Hungary, The Spy Who Dumped Me is rife with stereotypes that screenwriters purvey about Eastern Europe — its beauty and bleakness, man-buns, balance beams, pommel horses, trapezes and treachery. The latter four come courtesy of a modelgymnast-assassin (Ivanna Sakhno). Kunis, becoming a quality straight-woman, serves as an effective foil for McKinnon’s flawless bon mots. In just a few efforts (this movie, the aforementioned Ghostbusters and a raucous turn in Office Christmas Party), McKinnon has managed to match or surpass fellow Saturday Night Live alumni as a comic actor. One of those alums, Jane Curtin, no slouch in her own post-SNL career, plays Morgan’s mom. McKinnon’s laugh-out-loud performance stands in contrast to the in-your-face viscera and body functions that filmmakers now feel duty-bound to present. I don’t know how people can down so much popcorn while watching a movie character wretch. But I freely make comparisons to 48 Hours because it was Eddie Murphy’s first film. Regardless of some searing bloodshed, Murphy broke out as a movie star by keeping the audience in stitches between the flying bullets. Kate McKinnon isn’t the young Eddie Murphy (Murphy himself isn’t), but she runs away with The Spy Who Dumped Me like the anchor on the final leg of a 4 x 100 relay. Without her, this buddy-spy film, save Kunis’ appeal, would be ordinary at best. McKinnon’s accomplishment, then, is twofold: She is hilarious, and she opens the door for further disruption of those staid Hollywood saws that determine what a woman can play in a film. ♦

Kunis, becoming a quality straight woman, serves as an effective foil for McKinnon’s flawless bon mots.

hen the Indian guru Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh (later known as Osho) and a couple thousand of his devotees moved to Central Oregon in 1981 to found both a commune and the new age of global enlightenment, who would have thought their Utopian vision would result in armed mercenaries, bioterrorist attacks and assassination plots? Their neighbors in the sleepy little town of Antelope had their suspicions. The universally acclaimed Netflix series Wild Wild Country charts how those suspicions boiled over into open hostility and, eventually, into a head-on confrontation with the highest levels of the United States government. For viewers hoping to gain insight into Osho’s teachings, they would be better off looking elsewhere. There’s little talk of transcendence here. Wild Wild Country is all about power and personality. The limited series, directed by Maclain and Chapman Way, offers an intimate look at this strange chapter in American history through archival footage and interviews with the people closest to the action, including residents of Antelope, U. S. government officials, and several instrumental members of the Rajneeshees, Osho’s followers. One presence looms larger and perhaps more controversially than all of them: Ma Anand Sheela, Osho’s personal secretary for several years and the firebrand face of the Rajneeshpuram commune. Osho tasks Sheela with the preservation of the community, and she devotes herself to the job with a fervor that oscillates between religious zealot and Mafia boss. In carrying out her duties, she grows from a local irritant to a national provocateur to, ultimately, an international

fugitive. Despite her many, many reprehensible actions, viewers of Wild Wild Country will be hard-pressed not to admire Sheela a little too. She’s pugnacious. She’s charismatic. She’s imperturbably selfassured. There is much to like in someone you don’t really like, and the series’ greatest achievement is presenting this muddle of history as a muddle of sympathies. For instance, when the Rajneeshees first move to Oregon, the locals there look at them askance as “weird” and “other.” For the folks of Antelope, used to their strictly American-brand Jesus, this guru stuff smacks a bit too much of hippy devil worship. These rural prejudices are likely to put any liberal viewer ill at ease, but once the Rajneeshees take over Antelope, rename it Rajneesh, and line the streets with people in purple jumpsuits wielding assault rifles, one might start thinking those early sidelong glances were maybe not so misplaced. The U. S. government doesn’t escape this episode entirely squeaky-clean either. Even with a formidable list of charges against Sheela, and some grave suspicions as well, the government has to trump up a flimsy immigration case against Osho and resort to some extralegal tactics to break his spirit and get him to return to India. In this culture clash, everyone has their own righteous cause. Whether it be the rule of law, a way of life or a brighter future, Wild Wild Country is about how we rationalize our causes and the lengths to which we’ll go in order to defend them. We all play the game; some just play it harder than others. ♦ Out of the Box is a semi-regular column by VCReporter staff and contributors about television and streaming content.

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY ARIES

(March 21-April 19):

Palestinian American writer Susan Abulhawa writes that in the Arab world, to say a mere “thank you” is regarded as spiritless and ungenerous. The point of communicating gratitude is to light up with lively and expressive emotions that respond in kind to the kindness bestowed. For instance, a recipient may exclaim, “May Allah bless the hands that give me this blessing,” or “Beauty is in the eyes that find me beautiful.” In accordance with current astrological omens, I propose that you experiment with this approach. Be specific in your praise. Be exact in your appreciation. Acknowledge the unique mood and meaning of each rich exchange.

TAURUS

(April 20-May 20):

According to my analysis of the astrological omens, you need this advice from mythologist Joseph Campbell: “Your sacred space is where you can find yourself again and again.” He says it’s “a rescue land . . . some field of action where there is a spring of ambrosia — a joy that comes from inside, not something external that puts joy into you — a place that lets you experience your own will and your own intention and your own wish.” Do you have such a place, Taurus? If not, now is a great time to find one. If you do, now is a great time to go there for a spell and renew the hell out of yourself.

GEMINI

(May 21-June 20):

When he was 20 years old, future U.S. President Thomas Jefferson had an awkward encounter with a young woman who piqued his interest. He was embarrassed by the gracelessness he displayed. For two days afterward, he endured a terrible headache. We might speculate that it was a psychosomatic reaction. I bring this up because I’m wondering if your emotions are also trying to send coded

by rob brezsny

messages to you via your body. Are you aware of unusual symptoms or mysterious sensations? See if you can trace them back to their source in your soul.

CANCER

(June 21-July 22):

There’s a zone in your psyche where selfishness overlaps generosity, where the line between being emotionally manipulative and gracefully magnanimous almost disappears. With both hope and trepidation for the people in your life, I advise you to hang out in that gray area for now. Yes, it’s a risk. You could end up finessing people mostly for your own good and making them think it’s mostly for their own good. But the more likely outcome is that you will employ ethical abracadabra to bring out the best in others, even as you get what you want, too.

LEO

(July 23-Aug. 22):

You probably gaze at the sky enough to realize when there’s a full moon. But you may not monitor the heavenly cycles closely enough to tune in to the new moon, that phase each month when the lunar orb is invisible. We astrologers regard it as a ripe time to formulate fresh intentions. We understand it to be a propitious moment to plant metaphorical seeds for the desires you want to fulfill in the coming four weeks. When this phenomenon happens during the astrological month of Leo, the potency is intensified for you. Your next appointment with this holiday is August 10 and 11.

VIRGO

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22):

In her poem “Dogfish,” Virgo poet Mary Oliver writes, “I wanted the past to go away, I wanted to leave it.” Why? Because she wanted her life “to open like a hinge, like a wing.” I’m happy to tell you, Virgo, that you now have more power than usual to make your past go away. I’m also pleased to speculate that as you perform this service for yourself,

you’ll be skillful enough to preserve the parts of your past that inspire you, even as you shrink and neutralize memories that drain you. In response to this good work, I bet your life will open like a hinge, like a wing — no later than your birthday, and most likely before that.

LIBRA

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22):

Libran fashion writer Diana Vreeland (1903-1989) championed the beauty of the strong nose. She didn’t approve of women wanting to look like “piglets and kittens.” If she were alive today, she’d be pleased that nose jobs in the U.S. have declined 43 percent since 2000. According to journalist Madeleine Schwartz writing in Garage magazine, historians of rhinoplasty say that there has been a revival of appreciation for the distinctive character revealed in an unaltered nose. I propose, Libra, that in accordance with current astrological omens, we extrapolate some even bigger inspiration from that marvelous fact. The coming weeks will be an excellent time for you to celebrate and honor and express pride in your idiosyncratic natural magnificence.

SCORPIO

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21):

“Maybe happiness is this: not feeling like you should be elsewhere, doing something else, being someone else.” This definition, articulated by author Isaac Asimov, will be an excellent fit for you between now and Sept. 20. I suspect you’ll be unusually likely to feel at peace with yourself and at home in the world. I don’t mean to imply that every event will make you cheerful and calm. What I’m saying is that you will have an extraordinary capacity to make clear decisions based on accurate appraisals of what’s best for you.

SAGITTARIUS

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21):

I’ve compiled a list of new blessings you need and

deserve during the next 14 months. To the best of my ability, I will assist you to procure them. Here they are: a practical freedom song and a mature love song; an exciting plaything and a renaissance of innocence; an evocative new symbol that helps mobilize your evolving desires; escape from the influence of a pest you no longer want to answer to; insights about how to close the gap between the richest and poorest parts of yourself; and the cutting of a knot that has hindered you for years.

CAPRICORN

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19):

“It has become clear to me that I must either find a willing nurturer to cuddle and nuzzle and whisper sweet truths with me for six hours or else seek sumptuous solace through the aid of eight shots of whiskey.” My Capricorn friend Tammuz confided that message to me. I wouldn’t be surprised if you were feeling a comparable tug. According to my assessment of the Capricorn zeitgeist, you acutely need the revelations that would become available to you through altered states of emotional intelligence. A lavish whoosh of alcohol might do the trick, but a more reliable and effective method would be through immersions in intricate, affectionate intimacy.

AQUARIUS

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18):

Not even 5 percent of the world’s population lives in a complete democracy. Congratulations to Norway, Canada, Australia, Finland, Ireland, Iceland, Denmark, New Zealand, Switzerland and Sweden. Sadly, three countries where my column is published — the U.S., Italy and France — are categorized as “flawed democracies.” Yet they’re far better than the authoritarian regimes in China and Russia. (Source: The Economist.) I offer this public service announcement as a prelude to your homework assignment. According to my astrological

analysis, you will personally benefit from working to bring more democracy into your personal sphere. How can you ensure that people you care about feel equal to you, and have confidence that you will listen to and consider their needs, and believe that they have a strong say in shaping your shared experiences?

PISCES

(Feb. 19-March 20):

Mystic poet Kabir wrote, “The flower blooms for the fruit: when the fruit comes, the flower withers.” He was invoking a metaphor to describe his spiritual practice and reward. The hard inner work that he did to identify himself with God was the blooming flower that eventually made way for the fruit. The fruit was his conscious, deeply felt union with God. I see this scenario as applicable to your life, Pisces. Should you feel sadness about the flower’s withering? It’s fine to do so. But the important thing is that you now have the fruit. Celebrate it! Enjoy it! Homework: If you could make money from doing exactly what you love to do, what would it be? Testify at Freewillastrology.com.
