OPINION Editorial

Brett Kavanaugh, abortion and sex education W

hen it comes to civil rights, President Donald Trump has used executive orders to carry out an apparent racist-driven, anti-progressive agenda only to be thwarted by federal justices around the country. For the long term, however, it’s hard to say just how long the federal courts can stall executive orders when they occur. With 153 open federal judgeships, the future feels a bit daunting. Further, what might be stopped at lower-level courts may have no chance of being upheld at the Supreme Court of the United States. With the recent announcement of the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy, nominated by then-President Ronald Reagan, Trump’s nomination of Appeals Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh, if confirmed, would give the Supreme Court a practically firm conservative majority, 5-4. Kennedy has been a swing vote on many civil rights-related issues, including gay marriage. Kavanaugh is a wild card that liberals don’t trust but was also a top aide under then-President George W. Bush, who has been a longtime critic of Trump. Feeling comfortable about anything or anyone Trump chooses is a stretch for Democrats but perhaps there is more to consider. When it comes to Kavanaugh, one of the biggest concerns is his perspective on Roe V. Wade and abortion rights in general. While he doesn’t apparently personally doesn’t stand by it, in his confirmation hearing for the DC Circuit, he deferred to upholding precedent. In another a case last year, he ruled against an undocumented 17-yearold female who wanted an abortion and was being held by the federal government, though he did not say she had no constitutional right to an abortion. It’s fairly unclear

Letters

Short changed This letter is “Two Faced” one part about our wonderful, intelligent, folks that sit on the massive thrones in the Ventura County Supervisors department. The second part is about our equally wonderful, intelligent, folks that sit on the also massive thrones in the Ventura City Council chambers. A latest headline in an article in the Star says: “Ventura County home-care workers given pay raise.” Now if you just read that headline you would think “Oh what a great thing for those wonderful County Supervisors to do.” However if you read a bit further in the article you will see that his humongous raise these supervisors are patting themselves on the back for is only for $1.14/hour over the next two years, that equates to $.57/hour per year. With this raise after two years these home-care workers will be making only $13.64/hour, still

just how Kavanaugh would vote, given the opportunity to change the language of what is currently legally afforded to citizens. While pro-choice advocates have the right to be concerned about the minimizing of the right to a safe and legal abortion, the good news is that the rate has been steadily declining. With more young people waiting to settle down, to have children, even to have sex, access to safe, legal abortions will always be important, but may not be as necessary as in times past. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the most recent data shows, “In 2014, 652,639 legal induced abortions were reported to CDC from 49 reporting areas. The abortion rate for 2014 was 12.1 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15-44 years, and the abortion ratio was 186 abortions per 1,000 live births. “Compared with 2013, the total number and rate of reported abortions for 2014 decreased 2 percent, and the ratio decreased 7 percent. Additionally, from 2005 to 2014, the number, rate, and ratio of reported abortions decreased 21 percent, 22 percent, and 22 percent, respectively. In 2014, all three measures reached their lowest level for the entire period of analysis (2005-2014).” Some may argue, you don’t know what you have until it’s gone, i.e., if Roe v. Wade is somehow reversed, at the very least, it seems as though the younger generations are learning about responsible family planning and being more careful in general. For now, our freedom to discuss sex, birth control, adoption and more is not being threatened so let’s take advantage of that and aim to prevent unwanted pregnancies that occur during consensual sex in the meantime.

far behind the proposed $15/hour they have been waving around. At $13.64 that means these folks will be grossing around $2,183/ month. That is before taxes. That is if they are allowed to work 40 hours per week, which is very rare in that job. Can you even imagine making $2183/month less $436.60 in taxes, which leaves $1,747/month.  You couldn’t even rent a decent two-bedroom apartment for that amount of money. At this time the home care workers are making at the top level only $13.64/hour. These folks are responsible for helping low-income seniors and disabled people with baths, taking medicine, feeding, shopping and cleaning. Most of the fast food restaurants are paying their employees more than the county pays its home-care workers. Now I can say with utmost certainty that I personally would not do the job these folks do for less than $50 per hour. Now for the part about the Ventura City Council. Another headline in an article in the Star

reads: “Council to mull spending plan, fees.” (Exactly what the heck does “MULL” mean?) This intelligent group of real intelligent people has had a full year to “MULL” about what the heck they are doing. One of the biggest increases to the city is the pension costs. This will be about $19.7 million in 2018-2019; this amounts to a 43 percent increase from four years earlier.   Does this mean that in the past four years the city has had almost 50 percent of its employees at that time put in for retirement? I know for a fact that a few of the retired employees have been rehired by the city at a salary much higher than the one they received while working for the city. Then the super intelligent members of the Ventura City Council have decided to use $4,350,00 for such things as Safe and Clean Public Places Initiative,(whatever that is), Park Ambassador Program, (another what the heck is that),homeless shelter, community granting program, strategic plan targeting senior citizens. (What are the seniors being targeted for? More taxes?). Now that is as I said before a total of $4,350,000 for many projects that are beyond wondering about. Then is their unbridled intelligence that decided to use $1,600,000 for street reconstruction and deferred maintenance. (That amount of money would take care of possibly [1] one good-sized street.)  Why such a massive amount of “deferred maintenance”? Simple answer, the intelligent folks sitting on those council thrones would rather use all the available money on their personal “wonderful” projects like “Safe and Clean Public Places.” All I can say is now that we are finally going into a real voting system maybe we will get some folks in those Council Thrones that are intelligent to realize that by deferring important projects in favor of personal projects will make sure that the city of San Buenaventura will always remain a second-class city.

news In Brief SANTA PAULA ANIMAL RESCUE STORE ROBBED IN VENTURA

In the late hours of Wednesday, July 4, the Santa Paula Animal Rescue Center’s Second Chance Store located in downtown Ventura was burglarized, with perpetrators grabbing jewelry and cash worth potentially thousands of dollars in the process. “This is a blow to everyone at SPARC and especially at the store, where they’re so disappointed that anyone could steal from the animals,” said SPARC Executive Director Nicky Gore-Jones. “Whether the police find the perpetrators or not, we surely won’t be able to replace the value of the items or cash stolen, and as a nonprofit, no-kill shelter, we can’t afford a loss like this.” SPARC is seeking donations to recover from the loss and asking the community to shop at the Second Chance store, which is located at 347 E. Main Street in Ventura.

OXNARD FARMERS MARKET FIGHTS FOOD WASTE WITH RECOVERY PROGRAM

The last straw Restaurants, events ditch single-use straws by Chris O’Neal chris@vcreporter.com

R

estaurants and businesses in Ventura are pledging to ditch single-use straws as part of the “Strawless Summer Challenge” launched by the Ventura County chapter of Surfrider Foundation, which seeks to raise awareness of the damage wrought by nonrecyclable plastics and, in particular, straws. Come this weekend, one of Ventura County’s largest annual events will ditch straws as well when the Surf Rodeo kicks off in Ventura. As of July 10, Surfrider says that 19 restaurants in Ventura have committed to the pledge, becoming straw-by-request, paper-straw-by-request or offering no straws entirely, and two in Ojai. Laura Oergel, Chapter Chair for Ventura County Surfrider Chapter and also lead for Surfrider’s OceanFriendly Restaurant Program, says that Surfrider is urging several more to join as well. Restaurants that have taken the pledge include Barrelhouse 101, Ambrosia by Caffrodite, Jimmy’s Slice, Saloon BBQ Company and Harvest Cafe, to name just a few, according to Oergel. Oergel says that taking part in Surfrider’s annual beach cleanup gives more than enough reason to take on the issue of straws in particular. “We tally every piece of trash by separating it into the type of trash that it is,” said Oergel. In 2017, the cleanup took place at the promenade near the Ventura Pier. “Last year alone we collected over 2,500 straws.” Oergel says that aside from cigarette butts, straws are the most numerous items of refuse collected during the cleanup. In fact, worldwide, straws are the fifth most-found litter item on beaches, according to the nonprofit environmental advocacy group Ocean Conservancy, with an estimated 500 million straws used and discarded daily in the United States alone. The movement has gained steam in recent months, with major corporations and restaurants ditching plastic for something more environmentally friendly. International coffee retailer Starbucks announced on Monday, June 9, that it would scrap straws globally by 2020, choosing instead to offer recyclable lids, which the company says will save 1 billion plastic straws from being wasted annually.

— July 12, 2018

Joining Starbucks are Hilton Hotels, Alaska Airlines and Bon Appétit Management Company, which serves over 1,000 locations including museums and universities. McDonald’s announced in June that it would begin testing straw alternatives later this year. The movement to ban straws worldwide picked up steam in 2017 with the release of the documentary Straws by filmmaker Linda Booker, which documented the impact that non-recyclable plastics have on the environment. Video footage of straws being removed from sea creatures, such as a viral video of a sea turtle rescue in which a straw is removed from its nostril, have lent the movement urgency. Surf Rodeo Media Coordinator Allie Weigel says that on Monday, July 16, following the event, organizers will work with Surfrider in hosting a beach cleanup from 10 a.m. to noon. “So much of the local culture in Ventura is centered [on] the beach, anyone who grew up around here has likely spent many of their days enjoying our beautiful coastline,” said Weigel. “When the beach is a part of what made you the person you are today and has brought you joy throughout your life, then of course you want to protect your happy place... . By eliminating the use of straws from our event, we as a community are one step closer to moving away from single-use plastics that end up harming our coastal environment.” Weigel says that straws will be available by request for people with disabilities and that organizers may consider paper straws for next year’s event. “It’s an easy transfer to make and we’re hoping that because we’re a large event, other events will follow suit,” said Weigel. Oergel says that Surfrider’s goal is to enroll 30 restaurants by the end of summer and to keep them as part of the program going forward, adding that the businesses that have been approached have been receptive to the concept, with few exceptions. “Little by little, I believe that we’re creating awareness and that outreach is a lot of what Surfrider does,” said Oergel. “The first step is education and outreach, and things ✦ start to fall into place.” For more information on the Surfrider Foundation and the Strawless Summer Challenge, visit www.ventura.surfrider.org.

Ever left wondering what happens to food left unpurchased at a farmers market? Patrons of the downtown Oxnard farmers market, wonder no longer: Food Forward has announced that it will introduce its Farmers Market Recovery Program to the market beginning Thursday, July 12. The program, launched by the nonprofit organization, offers vendors at farmers markets boxes in which unsold produce is placed. At the end of the day, volunteers from Food Forward weigh and collect the boxes for distribution to direct-service agencies within 10 miles of the market. Living Oaks Church and The C Street Family Plan will be beneficiaries of the food from the downtown Oxnard market. Since inception, the program has worked with 23 farmers markets in and around Ventura County, the Oxnard market making the 24. In all, the program has collected and distributed 52,000 pounds of surplus food from farmers markets across Los Angeles and Ventura Counties. For more information on the program, visit www.foodforward.org.

ONE COUNTY, ONE BOOK SELECTS NOVEL FOR COUNTY READERS

Bookworms, on your mark, get set, and read Barbarian Days: A Surfing Life by William Finnegan as part of the One County, One Book reading challenged hosted by the Ventura County Library system. One County, One Book is a program designed to “unite the Ventura County community around a common narrative,” according to an official press release. This year’s novel, Barbarian Days, is a Pulitzer Prize-winning biography following the surf adventures of William Finnegan, a portion of which involves his time in Ventura County. Copies of Barbarian Days will be available at any of the 12 Ventura County libraries. Come October, events tailored around the book will be announced. For more information, visit www.vencolibrary.org.

VENTURA COUNCIL OKS HOMELESS SHELTER

The Ventura City Council has voted unanimously, 7-0, to move forward with plans to open a homeless shelter on the city’s east end. The vote gives the green light for officials to begin planning the opening of a year-round shelter at 2323 Knoll Drive, a building that the city owns and is expected to lease to itself for $1 a year with an outside contractor handling operations. Proposals are currently being accepted through Aug. 15. The shelter is expected to have a 55-bed capacity with the ability to add more if the need should arise due to inclement weather or emergencies. Neighboring Oxnard is also looking into opening its own year-round shelter that could host up to 150. The County of Ventura has agreed to match the city’s share of opening costs. The city’s total includes $600,000 toward the property and $250,000 further for operating costs upon opening. Safe-sleep parking, which allows people to sleep in their vehicles with valid ID and insurance, will be located onsite, and pets will be allowed to stay as well. The shelter could be open by the end of the year, though a permitting process through the city’s Planning Division has yet to begin. — Chris O’Neal

Main St., which was built in the 1930s. A representative from the bank said that accounts will not be affected and that customers will be directed to visit one of the two other Ventura-based branches at 2698 E. Main St. and 1130 S. Victoria Ave.

Lucille McDaniel, aka Lucy or Lucy in the Sky, has spent 38 years perfecting her craft at 20 N. Fir St., suite B, cutting and styling hair, but her focus has been working with children, and children with autism in particular. On Tuesday, July 10, her birthday, she made the final haircuts at that location before shutting her storefront operation. “A month ago, I was told I had to be out in a month,” McDaniel said, relaying that her landlord nearly tripled her rent, adding $1,400 monthly. She did, however, emphasize that her landlord had helped out tremendously during the Thomas Fire when he put out embers on a nearby palm tree. “In my eyes, he is a hero.” McDaniel, who also specializes in Watsu aquatic therapy, better known as water massage, said that she intended to keep in touch with her clients and that she may be working in a more mobile capacity, going to the clients instead. “I don’t have a plan B,” McDaniel explained, but she said that she doesn’t want to leave her young clientele in the lurch. McDaniel says that text is best. She can be reached at 805-652-1988 or 805-649-3388.

SEARS TO CLOSE THOUSAND OAKS LOCATION IN SEPTEMBER After 40 years, the Sears store located inside the Janss Marketplace in Thousand Oaks is packing up and calling it quits come September. The store’s closure comes along with a slew of closures for the embattled retailer nationwide as sales dwindle. The store signed its original lease in 1967, making it one of the oldest in the city. Sears Holding Company, which also owns Kmart, announced that it would be closing 62 underperforming stores this year as “part of [its] ongoing efforts to streamline the company’s operations,” according to a press release. The retailer will still have a presence in Ventura County, however, with one Sears store in Ventura and Kmarts in both Camarillo and ✦ Santa Paula.

DOWNTOWN VENTURA RESTAURANT STRUCK AGAIN BY VEHICLE

Cajun Kitchen Cafe, located on the 300 block of East Main Street in downtown Ventura, became the victim of another vehicle crashing through its wall for the second time in four years on Monday afternoon. Police say that at 1:08 p.m., officers responded to reports of a truck in the building. The driver of the truck was taken to the hospital via ambulance while three others suffered minor injuries and declined ambulance transport. A vehicle crashed through the same restaurant in March 2014, similarly injuring three people inside the restaurant.

LAST RESORT

Locals manage life off grid in RVs, trailers with limited resources BY SABRIGA TURGON

“People are tired of seeing fire victims,” says Laurie Gutierrez, retired RN, as we sit in the shade of a blue tarp alongside her RV. “We’re not sponging off the system. More than anything, I’d like to be back in a position where I was caring for others.”

8—

— July 12, 2018

With the Thomas Fire growing around them on Dec. 5, 2017, Gutierrez, her husband and son were given four minutes to grab and go. The sheriff said they’d be back in 48 hours. Into their two cars they packed their two little dogs, the guinea pigs and supplies for two days. As their rented home in Matilija Canyon turned to ash, they were registering with the Red Cross at Nordhoff evacuation center. They drove through fire to Carpinteria for the night, Buellton after that, stayed in a Motel 6 room on Seaward in Ventura, then another one on Johnson Drive and ended up at the Hummingbird Inn in Ojai. And they quickly realized that what they’d worn and grabbed in those four minutes was all they had of their former life. The Gutierrez family, like many others whose houses were destroyed, had to figure out how to rebuild their lives. County services and HELP of Ojai helped them with the motel expenses, but at the Hummingbird Inn there was a mix-up

around payment. They were evicted hours after Gutierrez confirmed with Ventura County Public Health that all was paid in full. But it was a holiday weekend, and there were no rooms at the inns. A former patient connected Gutierrez with a gentleman who offered her his RV for as long as she and her family needed. That first day, they parked on the street in front of a friend’s house. Melissa Livingston at Ventura Co. Public Health contacted Joe Evans, director of the Snowbird Program at Lake Casitas, who immediately gave them a parking spot at the lake. A few days later, the RV owner agreed to sell the rig to the Gutierrez family. They put together $5,000 with help from family members, and United Way paid the balance. “I lost everything,” says Gutierrez, “but I gained so much more. The compassion, love and support is more than I could have ever bought in my lifetime. That’s how much it meant.” Gutierrez and family had an advantage

over other fire victims suddenly living in RVs — Evans put the family into the Lake Casitas Snowbird Program that costs only $30 per night rental. But they had to leave by April 14, ahead of the summer season, and move into county parks where the daily rates also increased for peak season. Greater Goods of Ojai helped Gutierrez a lot with rent, but other RV residents —Brian and Kimberly Smith — are living in their trailer and scraping by on their disability income. The Smiths had just settled into a place in Ventura a couple of months before the Thomas Fire wiped it out, and they escaped in the RV in which they’d come to the city. “It’s been really hard, but we’re hoping to make it work,” says Kimberly. “There’s so many people in our situation. We ended up parking under a bridge by the fairgrounds because a guy allowed us to. We tried to do resource hunting for another place, but we have two dogs and are on a limited income, so there weren’t places available.”


refuse vehicles older than 15 years, or if there are luggage racks or air conditioning units on the top. The Smiths, like the Gutierrez family and Webb, are currently “boondocking” — parking on rural roads with no access to water or sewage dumping and, often, no shade. “We try to leave a light footprint and stay a couple days then move on,” Brian Smith says. “We don’t like to, but sometimes we get a room. It depends on what we can afford. Because this living, believe it or not, is more expensive than you think.” Food costs are higher because they cannot buy large quantities to save money. Heating the oven is expensive because it uses a lot of fuel. If they can’t afford a room, instead they pay $25 to empty their RVs sewage tanks and refill the fresh water tanks. Their generator goes through $5 per day in fuel. They pay a gym membership in order to shower, work out and just feel as though they’re living life. “A 27-foot trailer gets real small after a while.” Fuel, gym and dumping costs run them about $400 per month. And then there are the laundromat costs. Staying in RV parks is expensive. In the state or county parks, nightly fees can be $31-$40 including dumping sewage tanks and refilling water. Lake Casitas costs $50 per night, but $65 if you want sewer and water services.

St. Vincent de Paul and the county’s Rapid Rehousing and Homeless Assistance Program said they’d help with rental assistance, if the Smiths could find a place. But the list of demands was prohibitive — no couples, no dogs, too little income. The Smiths wanted to park in front of Brian’s mom’s house but it cost $100 every day or two for a permit. And the city’s other restrictions nixed the possibility of parking on the street: An oversized vehicle parked on a residential street has to be registered for the address where it’s parked; there’s a 10-day parking limit; the vehicle must be for sale. “We’ve tried to rent lots and driveways,” said Kimberly, “but you can’t live in your trailer on private land unless it’s designated for RV parking. The police will fine us if they see the lights on in an RV parked in a driveway. And some people will talk about doing a hushed-up deal for you to park on their land, then after the whole conversation is over say they want extra fees for this or that.” According to Brian Smith, police enforce-

ment got a lot worse after the fire. While they were searching for housing in Ventura before the fire, living in their RV wasn’t difficult. “We were even told by the Ventura police where we could park. Now, they will cite you and take your rig, legal or not; they just send a tow truck.” Many times the police blocked off streets and cited everyone living in their vehicles: for sleeping in your car, for living in your RV, for parking an oversize vehicle on city streets between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Each of those citations can cost $120. “I’ve gotten quite a few tickets,” says Mark Webb, RV resident. “The police make you move around a lot. The CHP is the worst because they are just traffic cops, so all they do is ride around and write tickets. From what I understand, the city police … man, they’re harassing people — writing tickets left and right.” Even if those with RVs can afford the high RV park rental of around $100 per day, they may still be prohibited from staying. RV parks

“The most expensive thing is the stress,” says Kimberly. “We’ve aged 10 years in the last six months because we’re being pushed away.” Gutierrez agrees. “I’ve had multiple sclerosis (MS) for 15 years and it’s never hurt this much as it has these past six months. Stress and heat with my MS is really hard, and exhaustion makes it hard to think. I’m learning to deal with that, and a lot of it is emotional and spiritual. Some of what helps her is the dedicated support she’s gotten from Jayn, her case manager at HELP of Ojai. “Jayn Walters at HELP of Ojai has been my case manager,” Gutierrez says. “I don’t have words to explain — she’s been over and above. I’ve gotten texts from her at 8 p.m. telling me about opportunities and to maybe go for housing, clothing or whatever. I so appreciate her heart.” HELP of Ojai received $685,000 in goods and financial donations that it distributed to hundreds of fire victims and impacted Ojai Valley residents through their Community Assistance Program (CAP). HELP’s main Thomas Fire Relief Project ran from December 2017 through April 2018, although the agency has reserved funds to continue assisting with housing through the fiscal year ending in summer 2019. “Our motto has been ‘like for like,’ ” says Walters, “in that, if you were a renter before, we are helping with rental assistance. If you were in a tiny home or trailer, and it was applicable for the appropriate person, we would help sponsor that as well. It was limited to a total of 11 trailers. “But the county has put very, very strict requirements on people for trailers and where to park them. People can’t put a trailer on their own property after the fire. To get a

permit to put a fifth wheel on your personal property, you have to go through pretty much planning out your whole rebuild: have a lot of the inspections done, have debris removed, have soil tested and have a drawing of what you want your house to look like. “But it’s especially hard for uninsured homeowners who just paid rent at some temporary place. So they’re just trying to do this as affordably as possible. And they’re just not able to really move on. Folks who are in a trailer, they’re as close as they can get to their home. And that’s not ideal either. “Those we helped with an actual trailer aren’t in any type of park anymore because the county has ended the extended-stay option. And the only park that was in Ojai proper wouldn’t allow people to stay longer. “This is where it’s hard. Some people are putting [trailers] on their property illegally; those aren’t necessarily our people. I think there are people who aren’t even necessarily living in them anymore at this point because they were going from campground to campground but couldn’t stay. Walters is case manager to many fire victims who long to get back and rebuild their homes, and their lives. “It’s important for people to know that the permitting process is really difficult for homeowners — specifically, homeowners who were uninsured or underinsured.” People like the Gutierrez family are an example. They tried, unsuccessfully, to get their landlord to cut and remove 300-plus palm fronds from the property, but she refused. Because of that hazard, they couldn’t get renter’s insurance. “I think a lot of people want to be back on their property,” Walters says. “Now it’s six months out and I don’t have a single homeowner on my list who’s moving forward with the rebuild yet.” Through all the trauma and grief, the positive side of the human spirit shines. “I believe everybody’s trying to do their best,” says Gutierrez. She had been shocked to see 10 firefighters in the motel room next to them in Carpinteria. “I asked them why, and they said, ‘If we were to pay for lodging, we’d have nothing to send home.’ What they make in a day wouldn’t even cover food and lodging. Now, that’s my goal — to change that.” “He’s my hero,” Kimberly Smith says about her husband of 25 years. “He’s learned to do so many things — it’s been amazing watching him. We thought we knew what was happening, and then the fire changed all that. So we look at it like, at least we have the experience and know we can manage.” Sean Ryan is new to RV living and managing his expenses. But in the county or state parks, he’s found neighborly concern. “It’s funny, but the people most in need of help are the ones most likely to give the help.” For Walters, her dedicated efforts have been a labor of love. “It’s such a hard time for people. I’ve met just such incredible people who are so resilient. So it’s been sad, but I’m thankful to have the opportunity to work with the people I’ve worked with through this fire. That includes the survivors themselves and ✦ other agencies.”

Actress Ann-Margret with renowned Hollywood publicist David Mirisch.

Local PR man reflects on 50 years of celebrity media relations by Carl Kozlowski

E

ver since his birth (literally) on the historic battlefield of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, David Mirisch has been living a colorful life. He was raised as a scion of the famous Mirisch Film Company, a team of four brother producers who created 72 feature films, including three Best Picture winners and such classics as West Side Story, Some Like It Hot and The Great Escape. Yet he struck out on his own in the arena of public relations because the elder Mirisch brothers ordered their sons to find work outside the company, fearing that their presence on film sets would be a frequent source of disruption, giving jealous crew members the opportunity to accuse them of nepotism. Mirisch’s foray into media relations over the past five decades has paid off with his own impressive string of successes, as the Westlake Village resident has connected celebrities and athletes with more than 2,500 charity fundraising events, raising more than $35 million for an array of nonprofits. In a tribute to his 50 years of charitable work, the Museum of Ventura County will host an exhibit of photographs, awards and memorabilia from Mirisch’s illustrious life. The exhibit should be spectacular, considering that Mirisch has worked with more than 500 personalities from film, music and sports, including John Wayne,

Jerry Lewis, Raquel Welch, Frank Sinatra, Johnny Mathis, The Supremes, Merv Griffin, Wilt Chamberlain, Wayne Gretzky, Phil Esposito and more. “I have a passion for the nonprofits that I’ve worked with over the past 50 years, and the fact that I have this desire to help other people is tied to nonprofits hiring me to run their events,” says Mirisch. “I’m nearly 83 and I’m still not retired. I’m working on five events right now. I’ve slowed down a little, where I’m not doing 25 events the way I used to. Instead, I have six that are regular clients, including an AIDS organization in Rancho Cucamonga, where every year I do a celebrity bowling tournament for them the past 16 years.” Mirisch has seen a lot of changes occur in the world of celebrity journalism and public relations over his half-century in service to the stars. He recalls that PR firms used to be small boutiques with three or four staffers, as opposed to giant agencies with armies of publicists and their assistants at the ready to fight for attention in the media. “When I reach out to different celebrities to invite them to events, I can never get the publicist on the phone,” says Mirisch, who has a documentary crew following him in the hopes of selling a Netflix series about his star-laden life. “It’s not personadriven like it was with Johnny Mathis, Omar Sharif, Pat Boone and Perry Como, who dealt with me personally, not through assistants.”

One other major shift in the world of celebrity coverage is the fact that stars weren’t as open about their personal proclivities then. Some scandal-prone stars kept their PR reps busy trying to keep them out of the news for affairs and other illicit behavior, but Mirisch proudly notes that his wholesome, “all-American” clients rarely if ever caused a moment of trouble on that front. He also notes that silent-film star Mary Pickford was a longtime favorite client as well, for other reasons. “Mary Pickford hired me with her husband Buddy Rogers for the Mary Pickford Film Festival held in theaters all over the country,” Mirisch recalls. “I called columnists like Irv Kupcinet, Walter Winchell and others, asking ‘Would you like to talk to Mary about her film festival?’ “I set up all these interviews but never met Pickford. The answer was, she and the husband wanted the public not to see Mary Pickford as she was then, but the way she was when she starred in silent films. What’s changed is the personal touch that public relations people have with their clients.” F The David Mirisch exhibit opens on Wednesday, July 18, and will be on display Wednesdays and Saturdays and by appointment through Aug. 18 at the Museum of Ventura County, 100 E. Main St., Ventura. For more information, call 805-653-0323 or visit venturamuseum.org. To learn more about David Mirisch, visit www.dmirisch.com.

“PIETÀ” UNVEILED AT MISSION SAN BUENAVENTURA by Mike Nelson

M

ore than 500 years after 24-year-old Michelangelo Buonarroti completed the “Pietà,” a full-scale replica of the Renaissance treasure now rests inside Mission San Buenaventura. The replica — fashioned, like the original, from Carrara marble — is one of only 112 marble replicas worldwide, licensed through the Vatican Observatory Foundation and distributed through ArteDivine S.A. A public unveiling of the sculpture was celebrated during a July 8 prayer service at the historic downtown Mission, attended by 300 people including ArteDivine’s Richard and Esther Stewart of Santa Clarita, and Jacqueline and Brad Hanson, of Arizona, whose donation made acquisition of the replica possible. “Michelangelo said the Holy Spirit guided his hands through creating the ‘Pietà,’ ” noted Richard Stewart, founder of the humanitarian organization Help Worldwide, “and when you gaze on this sculpture, you can’t help but feel the love and forgiveness of Christ that he offered to the world.” The “Pietà” — representing the Blessed Virgin Mary cradling her crucified son, Jesus — is Michelangelo’s only work that he ever signed. The replica donated to Mission San Buenaventura is composed of Carrara marble from the same quarry Michelangelo chose. The replica has been placed in the former baptistery and is framed by blue faux curtains and gold prayer lettering designed by MB Hanrahan, and a new stainedglass window by Belgar “Chief” Merlich. Father Tom Elewaut, mission pastor, offered his and the parish’s gratitude to the Hansons, the Stewarts and to God. “We cannot say thank you enough to God for all the gifts he provides, gifts of art and creativity and generosity that inspire all of us,” he said.

The 2018 Ventura Music Festival kicks off July 12

by Leslie A.Westbrook

G

et ready to get happy! This year’s Ventura Music Festival lineup promises another interesting mélange of musical styles during its two-week run, and the schedule is packed with joy. From Pink Martini’s groovy tunes at the Oxnard Performing Arts Center to an encore performance by Ojai’s Perla Batalla (last year’s Leonard Cohen tribute was deeply moving; this year she takes on Frida Kahlo) at Ventura College Performing Arts Center (VCPAC) to the entertaining guitar virtuosity of El Twanguero, fine classical artists and more, there is, once again, something for just about every musical taste under the sun. WEEK 1 The festival kicks off on Thursday with delightful “gypsy jazz” at the historic Olivas Adobe courtyard led by Grammy-winning multi-instrumentalist and Ventura resident John Jorgenson. Attendees can pack a picnic for preconcert dining and there will be a full bar. Jorgenson, on acoustic guitar, mandolin and vocals, brings an all-star quintet that includes Casey Driscoll, Rory Hoffman, Simon Planting and Rick Reed. Friday afternoon, it’s the ever-popular “Tea and Trumpets” at the Pierpont Inn that includes a four-course English tea with the fanfare. That evening, El Twanguero, aka Spanish guitarist Diego Garcia, promises to “mash it up” with his mix of blues, rock, Flamenco and Latin twang backed up by muy caliente musicians with Español/Chicano/funk sounds and rhythms. Garcia, a double Latin Grammy-winner and

recent transplant to California, divides his time between L.A. studio work and gigs and European tours. “I’m really excited to play the festival! Ventura is going to be the first to premiere my new record, Electric Sunset. It’s a very eclectic album that’s like a map of L.A.,” says Garcia. “I just moved to California, so playing in the area gives me exposure in the U.S. It’s an honor to perform on the same program as other musicians like John Jorgenson, who I’d love to play with!” Saturday night, the amazing 12-member orchestra Pink Martini, which enjoys a huge following for its lounge/classical/jazz/ pop sound, promises to blow the roof off the Oxnard Performing Arts Center. The group performed at the VMF in 2008, and fans have been awaiting the Portland-based group’s return for a decade. Leading vocals will be China Forbes. Sunday afternoon, it’s time for Beethoven and Dvorák performed by Trio Céleste at Ventura College Performing Arts Center with a preconcert talk by VMF Artistic Director Nuvi Mehta. WEEK 2 The following week — July 18-22 — promises more musical jewels. On Wednesday, there will be a free public concert of upbeat cumbias, revamped doo-wop and American classics thanks to Jarabe Mexicano. “This is a real addition this year,” notes VMF Executive Director Susan Scott. “Jarabe Mexicano is performing a free full-length concert outdoors. Normally there would be some hefty ticket prices. They are tremendous and will knock it out of the park!”

Joy to Ventura!

LATIN NIGHTS: The sounds of Spain and Mexico will echo throughout both weeks, with Spanish guitarist Diego Garcia aka El Twanguero (top) performing on July 13 at Ventura College and Jarabe Mexicano (above) bringing Latin American songbook favorites to Mission Park on July 18. This fiesta will take place at Mission Park on Main Street (across from the mission). Be sure to wear your dancing shoes and bring low chairs, blankets and possibly a picnic. Akropolis Reed Quintet performs on Friday night at VCPAC with a special nod to Leonard Bernstein and his jazz-classical composition Prelude Fugue and Riffs as well as Gershwin’s American in Paris, Duke Ellington’s River and John Steinmetz’s Sorrow and Celebration. Steinmetz states in the program notes that, “The deaths of two young African American men, Michael Brown and Eric Garner, were on my mind. Sometimes sorrow, in bringing people together, can cut through the illusion of separateness, and that is cause for gratitude and celebration.” Crowd pleaser Perla Batalla returns to present her “Frida Kahlo Song Cycle” celebrating the famous artist and her tumultuous relationship with fellow artist/husband/tormentor Diego Rivera on Saturday night. Last but not least, the festival takes its final

bow on Sunday afternoon with Malashock Dance — a choreographed departure and something different. “Last year was so very good, we wanted to at least meet that level, and I am absolutely confident we’ve done so. It’s certainly terrific and people are going to love it,” exclaims Scott. “Music has a unique capacity to bring people together,” she continues. “There is no festival without people — and when people come together it makes a sense of community. . . . A shared community is a very lovely thing.” This year’s lineup is terrific, but next year is the 25th anniversary. Stay tuned for a pretty amazing 2019 festival. Scott is already making big plans. “It’s going to be bigger! A year-long silver ✦ anniversary celebration,” she teased. The Ventura Music Festival takes place July 12-22. Schedules, venues and ticket prices vary. For more information, call 805-648-3146 or visit www. venturamusicfestival.org.

Anime Expo: From Ventura to Japan in a day

by Chris O’Neal

chris@vcreporter.com

T

he temperature outside of the Los Angeles Convention Center had reached a balmy 102 degrees by noon on Saturday, July 7, the third day of Anime Expo. The only thing hotter was my sheer, unbridled excitement at the thought of wandering its halls elbow-to-elbow with costumed otaku (anime, manga and pop culture obsessives). Anime Expo is a four-day convention organized and hosted by the nonprofit Society for the Promotion of Japanese Animation. It is the largest anime convention in North America, encompassing manga, films, video games and music, attracting over 100,000 fans from around the world. This year’s expo was held July 5-8. Think of it as San Diego Comic-Con specifically tailored for the anime genre, replete with special announcements, panels featuring voice actors and creators and world-premiere screenings. With one day scheduled for attendance, I would need to formulate a tight schedule for the optimum amount of anime consumption. As it turns out, one day wasn’t nearly enough. After catching a portion of Kimba the White Lion at around 9 a.m., I succumbed to sensory overload as I stepped back into the convention center lobby, thanks to the incredibly creative cosplayers scrambling about. “Nani?!” I shouted. (“What?!” in Japanese). Fans by the thousands came donned in costumes, portraying characters from popular and sometimes incredibly obscure series, memes, video games and

everything in between. Attack on Titan, Sailor Moon and Dragon Ball Z were well-represented. Several cosplayers arrived as colorful characters from JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, an anime and manga by Hirohiko Araki. Over the weekend, it was announced that part five of the series, Golden Wind, would premiere in anime form later this year. Excitement was palpable throughout the convention center. For certain premieres, fans required tickets or wristbands. Dedicated thralls lined up in the sweltering heat earlier in the week to procure passes to several events, including the film adaptation of Boku no Hero Academia, an immensely popular series following the exploits of wannabe heroes. By midday Saturday, the convention center was packed tight. It took 15 minutes to wade through the swarming masses from the West Hall, where costumed and non-costumed folks alike could pretend that they were inside of an anime by posing in intricately designed sets, to the South Hall, where the big-name anime purveyors such as Funimation and Crunchyroll set up shop next to not-so-big-names selling T-shirts, figurines, replica weapons and even sleeves for body pillows adorned with a wide variety of anime characters in various stages of undress. It was hot. It was sweaty. And it was, well, wonderful. There truly is no place better than Anime Expo to immerse oneself in this particular niche. Aforementioned series can be found on Netflix, Hulu, Crunchyroll and other streaming services.

Ant-Man and the Wasp Size matters by Dave Randall

daverandall2@gmail.com Ant-Man and the Wasp Directed by Peyton Reed Starring: Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas, Hannah John-Kamen Rated PG-13 for some sci-fi action violence 1 hr. 58 min.

E

ighty percent of the Earth’s species are insects. Before you grab that can of Raid, bear in mind that some of these creepy crawlers and winged biters inspired comic book legends Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, then Hollywood. The Marvel Cinematic Universe has cornered the market on box office hits, if not insect superheroes. Ant-Man and the Wasp have the stage to themselves this summer, in a film full of fun and post-Fourth of July fireworks. Before Ant-Man was released in 2015, the character didn’t enjoy the adulation reserved for the other Marvel superheroes introduced in 1962 — Hulk, Fantastic Four, Spider-Man, et al. Like Iron Man, both Ant-Man and the Wasp derive their super powers from technology. Their story is much different than those of, say, Dr. Strange, Thor, the X-Men and others with powers based in mythology or the supernatural. They use their suits to shrink, grow, fly and kick ass — not necessarily in that order. Paul Rudd’s boyish charm makes Scott Lang, the AntMan, all his own. Scott’s under house arrest, with a monitor on his leg, on the outs with Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and his daughter, Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly). Hank, a gifted scientist who created the shrinking and expanding technologies of the Ant-Man suit, and Hope, also a whiz, have been building a superlab. They’re searching for a way to find Pym’s wife, Janet (Michelle Pfeiffer), lost for 30 years in a microworld, the quantum realm. Over the decades, Hank has improved upon Janet’s old suit, and Hope is now the new Wasp. It’s not necessary to have seen the first Ant-Man to

‘‘

enjoy this sequel. Know that Janet is using Scott as a conduit to reach Hank and Hope, who are on the lam from S.H.I.E.L.D and other government agencies. They engage the sleazy Sonny Burch (Walton Goggins) to get the black-market tech they need to continue research. Burch, naturally, wants the results for himself. Most captivating is the other party in pursuit of what’s discovered — Ava, the Ghost, a former S.H.I.E.L.D operative with super powers that promise to prove fatal. Played by Hannah John-Kamen, an actress with haunting gray eyes, Ghost is the most empathetic adversary Marvel has come up with to date. The Ant-Man himself has a daughter to tend to (Abby Ryder Fortson), an ex-wife (Judy Greer) and her current husband (Bobby Cannavale, in a warm, cuddly role diametrically opposed to the bad guys and psychos he’s played in the past). Plus, Scott and his business partner Luis (Michael Peña) are being closely watched by S.H.I.E.L.D agent Jimmy Woo (Randall Park). As Ant-Man and the Wasp, Scott and Hope (and buildings) vacillate between tiny and huge. Cars and vans are kept in the same kind of Hot Wheels container I had as a child, and spring to life-size with a walloping burst. It’s fascinating and hilarious. Director Peyton Reed is part of a generation of behind-the-camera artists who easily weave mind-blowing CGI into full-movie experience. The writers — Chris McKenna, Erik Sommers. Andrew Barrer, Gabriel Ferrari and Rudd himself — spread witty dialogue around the effects. There’s a chase through San Francisco that would make Steve McQueen’s Bullitt and Burt Reynolds’ Bandit sullen with envy. Lilly, an actress who grew up climbing trees in British Columbia, is a perfect Wasp. She and Rudd make an entertaining team. The Wasp wasn’t in Avengers: Infinity War for reasons that’ll become obvious by the final scene. Also certain: As you leave the air-conditioned chill of the theater and get hit with a blast of hot summer air, you’ll want to turn around, retake your seat ♦ and wait for Ant-Man and the Wasp to return. 

Ant-Man and the Wasp have the stage to themselves this summer, in a film full of fun and post-Fourth of July fireworks.

Shave It 11 E. Hillcrest Drive Thousand Oaks 805-338-3104 $3.75-$4.25

B

eating the heat in East County is no easy task. Our strategy went as follows: First, go to West County, hit the beach and swim in the ocean. Don’t forget an umbrella or awning of some sort. Second, after the beach, find shade, anywhere, and try to relax. Third, enjoy a treat of shaved ice. We chose Kona Ice and followed the directions on the phone to a small tract housing development off Wendy Drive in Newbury Park and ended up at a house with no sign of the Kona mobile. Thanks, Apple Maps. After a brief argument about my inability to follow driving directions that led to an apology and a declaration of serious frustration over Apple Maps, we chose another such business, Shave It in Thousand Oaks. Only one other Shave It exists, in Norwalk. Located in a small strip mall off Hillcrest Drive, parking was easy but we hurried across the lot to make sure our pups’ paws didn’t scorch on the pavement. The venue has a sleek, modern, breezy feel, decorated in metal,

aquamarine and blue tones, accented with white. The center floor tiles inside are touchsensitive, as deep blue water moves around when walking to the counter. For those who enjoy a lot of options and combinations, Shave It is a good place for unique syrups such as cotton candy and jungle juice. For us, we chose Tropical Swell (passion fruit, guava and mango with macadamia nut ice cream) and Fancy Pants (banana and pineapple with coconut ice cream). Shave It is clearly not a typical shavedice place as traditional serving is shaved ice only. The macadamia nut ice cream had run out so I received vanilla as a substitute. Our orders came with a dollop of creamy, smooth vanilla ice cream on top our large “Go big or go home” cup, with about half the container of flavored shaved ice and a scoop of ice cream on the bottom. The flavors were on point and the ice cream was a nice balance in texture, but in the heat, all shaved ice might be a better choice. While my partner powered through his cold treat, I found that I simply could not finish mine. But it did not go to waste between my companion and our hot dogs. No doubt, we will be back for a cooling-off session for the Susie Q, the Penguin Slide, The Grom or some other fun concoction at Shave It in the ♦ near future. 

Fancy Pants: passion fruit, guava and mango shaved ice with macadamia nut ice cream, and Tropical Swell: banana and pineapple shaved ice with coconut ice cream. 22 —

Bun Dong Biet with crunchy leafy slices of lettuce greens to wrap the tasty slices of barbecue pork.

Buddhalicious Vietnamese food by Leslie A. Westbrook Love Phò N’ Mor 341 Arneill Road Camarillo 805-484-1881 • $1-$11.45

W

ith it’s bright lime green walls, modern white hanging lamps, comfortable booths, spotless tables and chairs, the brightly lit, bustling and popular Love Pho N’ Mor Vietnamese restaurant, tucked into the corner of a Camarillo mall that boasts a 99 Cents Only Store, is a winner. Two wide-screen televisions and two large wooden, laughing Buddha statues — one that greets at the entrance, another in the dining room for good measure — add to the bright and happy space decorated with large black and white photographs of Vietnam rice paddies on the walls. Occasionally, I stop off here on my way home from L.A. to meet friends or after concerts with musician friends. Recently, I was bringing my mom north, out of the traffic and summer smog of L.A., and we decided to meet my favorite Camarillo-based friends, John and Mara, for a Friday afternoon Vietnamese lunch feast. Three of us were celebrating our June birthdays, which was another good excuse to meet up. The portions are huge and the food is delicious. The menu is gigantic and the prices are incredibly affordable. The staff is helpful in navigating the over 100 items — 161 if you include the beverages list, not counting beer — that are ordered by number, in the many-paged menu. And the fresh food comes quickly. Four of us filled our tummies to the brim: Our bill was $50, including one appetizer, four entrees, a mango boba smoothie and iced tea. Yes, there’s phò — and plenty of it. But I’m more about the “mor.” What did we have? Two of us shared an order of “winter rolls,” rice paper wrapped around fried tofu, rice vermicelli and lettuce served with a peanut dipping sauce. There are spring, summer, winter and autumn rolls, with shrimp or beef or shrimp paste or pork sausage. Who knew? For our entrees, my mom ordered grilled pork, beef and chicken atop “small” vermicelli noodles in a huge

bowl. To distinguish the variety of noodles served, simply refer to page 2 of your menu, where a photo guidechart is there to help navigate the eight types of noodles. There’s also a primer on Vietnam — and all the dishes are listed in English and in Vietnamese, adding to the authenticity of this restaurant. Mara, who avoids sugar, ordered pho tai chin — a man-sized bowl slightly tweaked to her asking that was brimming with tender slices of lean beef filet, lots of broccoli, onions and bok choy with a side of fresh leafy condiments — like Thai basil, bean sprouts and mint. The broth had a slightly sweet cinnamon flavor. John, a man with a hearty appetite, went for bun tom thit nuon (rice noodles known as bun with grilled pork and vegetables), which went down pretty fast and to great satisfaction, as did his mango smoothie, ordered “because I grew up in Brazil” he told my mom. In the past, I have ordered one of the dishes where the noodles are pan-fried and crunchy; this time I chose another winner. My plate bun dac biet was filled to the brim with big fresh crunchy leafy slices of lettuce greens to wrap the tasty thin slices of barbecued pork topped with scallions, tiny fried onions and peanuts, sitting atop “angel” vermicelli, an even finer noodle than what my mom had. Cucumber slices and shredded carrots were also there to fill the lettuce wraps I rolled — topped with sweet hoisin sauce. If you are not familiar with Vietnamese food, you should be. It’s tasty but not spicy and there are condiments: soy sauce, hoisin sauce, fish sauce and hot sauce to add flavor. There are broken rice dishes, Thai iced tea, a children’s menu, weird-sounding Jell-0 desserts and even tripe. Essentially, there is something for everyone. And then some. The staff here is very accommodating — especially if you have special requests, as Mara did for no sugar and more vegetables. If I had one criticism it would be the noise factor, but this can be taken into consideration by going at an off time (they are open 10 a.m. – 9 p.m.) if that bothers you. But everyone is so happy, having so much fun, and so relieved not to have to rob a bank to pay the bill, it’s really not that much of an issue. Fresh, bountiful, delicious and inexpensive (many entrees are under $10) — what more could you ask for? I promise that you will leave, as we did, rubbing your full belly and smiling like a content Buddha. ♦

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY ARIES

(March 21-April 19):

Your key theme right now is growth. Let’s dig in and analyze its nuances. 1. Not all growth is good for you. It may stretch you too far too fast — beyond your capacity to integrate and use it. 2. Some growth that is good for you doesn’t feel good to you. It might force you to transcend comforts that are making you stagnant, and that can be painful. 3. Some growth that’s good for you may meet resistance from people close to you; they might prefer you to remain just as you are, and may even experience your growth as a problem. 4. Some growth that isn’t particularly good for you may feel pretty good. For instance, you could enjoy working to improve a capacity or skill that is irrelevant to your long-term goals. 5. Some growth is good for you in some ways, and not so good in other ways. You have to decide if the trade-off is worth it. 6. Some growth is utterly healthy for you, feels pleasurable, and inspires other people.

TAURUS

(April 20-May 20):

You can’t sing with someone else’s mouth, Taurus. You can’t sit down and settle into a commanding new power spot with someone else’s butt. Capiche? I also want to tell you that it’s best if you don’t try to dream with someone else’s heart, nor should you imagine you can fine-tune your relationship with yourself by pushing someone else to change. But here’s an odd fact: You can enhance your possibility for success by harnessing or borrowing or basking in other people’s luck. Especially in the coming weeks.

GEMINI

(May 21-June 20):

You wouldn’t attempt to cure a case of hiccups by repeatedly smacking your head against a wall, right? You wouldn’t use an anti-tank rocket launcher to eliminate the mosquito buzzing around your room, and you wouldn’t set your friend’s hair on fire as a

by rob brezsny

punishment for arriving late to your rendezvous at the café. So don’t overreact to minor tweaks of fate, my dear Gemini. Don’t over-medicate tiny disturbances. Instead, regard the glitches as learning opportunities. Use them to cultivate more patience, expand your tolerance, and strengthen your character.

CANCER

(June 21-July 22):

I pay tribute to your dizzying courage, you wise fool. I stage-whisper “Congratulations!” as you slip away from your hypnotic routine and wander out to the edge of mysterious joy. With a crazy grin of encouragement and my fist pressed against my chest, I salute your efforts to transcend your past. I praise and exalt you for demonstrating that freedom is never permanent but must be reclaimed and reinvented on a regular basis. I cheer you on as you avoid every temptation to repeat yourself, demean yourself, and chain yourself.

LEO

(July 23-Aug. 22):

I’m feeling a bit helpless as I watch you messing with that bad but good stuff that is so wrong but right for you. I am rendered equally inert as I observe you playing with the strong but weak stuff that’s interesting but probably irrelevant. I fidget and sigh as I monitor the classy but trashy influence that’s angling for your attention; and the supposedly fast-moving process that’s creeping along so slowly; and the seemingly obvious truth that would offer you a much better lesson if only you would see it for the chewy riddle that it is. What should I do about my predicament? Is there any way I can give you a boost? Maybe the best assistance I can offer is to describe to you what I see.

VIRGO

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22):

Psychologist Paul Ekman has compiled an extensive atlas of how emotions are revealed in our faces. “Smiles are probably the most underrated facial expressions,” he has written, “much more complicated than most people realize. There are dozens of smiles, each differing in appearance and in the message expressed.” I bring this to your attention, Virgo, because your assignment in the coming weeks — should you choose to accept it — is to explore and experiment with your entire repertoire of smiles. I’m confident that life will conspire to help you carry out this task. More than at any time since your birthday in 2015, this is the season for unleashing your smiles.

LIBRA

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22):

Lucky vibes are coalescing in your vicinity. Scouts and recruiters are hovering. Helpers, fairy godmothers, and future playmates are growing restless waiting for you to ask them for favors. Therefore, I hereby authorize you to be imperious, regal, and overflowing with self-respect. I encourage you to seize exactly what you want, not what you’re “supposed” to want. Or else be considerate, appropriate, modest, and full of harmonious caution. CUT! CUT! Delete that “be considerate” sentence. The Libra part of me tricked me into saying it. And this is one time when people of the Libra persuasion are allowed to be free from the compulsion to balance and moderate. You have a mandate to be the show, not watch the show.

rent astrological omens suggest that the next two months will be an excellent time to commit yourself to a Great Work that you will give your best to for the rest of your long life!

SAGITTARIUS

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21):

What’s the biggest lie in my life? There are several candidates. Here’s one: I pretend I’m nonchalant about one of my greatest failures; I act as if I’m not distressed by the fact that the music I’ve created has never received the listenership it should it have. How about you, Sagittarius? What’s the biggest lie in your life? What’s most false or dishonest or evasive about you? Whatever it is, the immediate future will be a favorable time to transform your relationship with it. You now have extraordinary power to tell yourself liberating truths. Three weeks from now, you could be a more authentic version of yourself than you’ve ever been.

CAPRICORN

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19):

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21):

Now and then you go through phases when you don’t know what you need until you stumble upon it. At times like those, you’re wise not to harbor fixed ideas about what you need or where to hunt for what you need. Metaphorically speaking, a holy grail might show up in a thrift store. An eccentric stranger may provide you with an accidental epiphany at a bus stop or a convenience store. Who knows? A crucial clue may even jump out at you from a spam email or a reality TV show. I suspect that the next two weeks might be one of those odd grace periods for you.

Emily Dickinson wrote 1,775 poems — an average of one every week for 34 years. I’d love to see you launch an enduring, deep-rooted project that will require similar amounts of stamina, persistence, and dedication. Are you ready to expand your vision of what’s possible for you to accomplish? The cur-

“Reverse psychology” is when you convince people to do what you wish they would do by shrewdly suggesting that they do the opposite of what you wish they would do. “Reverse censorship” is when

SCORPIO

AQUARIUS

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18):

you write or speak the very words or ideas that you have been forbidden to express. “Reverse cynicism” is acting like it’s chic to express glee, positivity, and enthusiasm. “Reverse egotism” is bragging about what you don’t have and can’t do. The coming weeks will be an excellent time to carry out all these reversals, as well as any other constructive or amusing reversals you can dream up.

PISCES

(Feb. 19-March 20):

Poet Emily Dickinson once revealed to a friend that there was only one Commandment she ever obeyed: “Consider the Lilies.” Japanese novelist Natsume Soseki told his English-speaking students that the proper Japanese translation for “I love you” is Tsuki ga tottemo aoi naa, which literally means “The moon is so blue tonight.” In accordance with current astrological omens, Pisces, I’m advising you to be inspired by Dickinson and Soseki. More than any other time in 2018, your duty in the coming weeks is to be lyrical, sensual, aesthetic, imaginative and festively non-literal.
