The best course of action for U.S.? W

hen it comes to leadership in world affairs, President Donald Trump seems to take pride in an apparent semi-bridled mayhem approach. While we can all steadfastly agree that, for most of us, our routine personal lives have not been impacted, the arrogant display of “I do what I want” tactics continues to compel caring people all over the world to react and protest. Even the most lackadaisical people who typically opt out of politics altogether seem to be scratching their heads over the ongoing saga originating in the White House. The most troubling question with Trump is, where exactly is he leading this country? The appearance of how Trump presides seems to go as follows: Antagonize world leaders, pull out of international treaties for the betterment of the global population, act nonchalant over civil rights concerns in the U.S., make allies into enemies, force the U.S. into seclusion and show favor to dangerous leaders such as dictator Kim Jong-Un and autocrat Vladimir Putin. Rinse and repeat. Oh, and create a Space Force for good measure. In 2001, then-President George W. Bush was causing quite an uproar over his leadership whereby he began isolating the U.S. in foreign affairs and wasn’t one

Trash rates go up

A

s a long time city resident, I wanted to share something I find frustrating. My wife and I received our newest bill yesterday from E.J. Harrison & sons yesterday. At the bottom of the statement, they state starting in July, they are increasing residential trash/recycling/brown waste bin pickup rates by a total of 5 percent. The way they word it, to be frank, is BS.  And with only a couple weeks’ notice too. I am a businessman, this would not fly with my customers. I would diligently give them much more notice, with a simpler explanation of why I am looking at increasing my fees for my products and services.  Not a bunch of jargon.    I urge you, our city council, to review the contract you have with E.J. Harrison, as they seemingly have a monopoly here and can say, do and bump up rates, simply because they can. We, as residents, have no other alternative. Have we, as a city, looked into other providers, such as Waste Management that other municipalities across the country utilize? They are a much larger company, are publicly traded, thus having more transparency in contracts with municipalities, in my opinion than a privately held company such as E.J. Harrison, that can seemingly gouge us whenever they feel necessary to make more of

for cooperating and encouraging stronger relationships with world leaders. In June 2001, the VCReporter published an article, “TROUBLEMAKER,” in which we described U.S. unilateralism doing harm to our allies and, ultimately, to ourselves. Ten weeks later, 9/11 happened. The present administration is following a similar course, upsetting many ally nations with threats, tariffs and strong talk from the president.  But why?  Because things are going well for the U.S.? At this point, it’s hard to understand if Trump is more interested in garnering attention at any cost or if he believes that his actions are actually for the overall benefit of the U.S. In the end, alienation is simply not a good thing, and division within this country only makes us weaker. While so many are trying to make sense of the president’s decisions and others simply agree that whatever decision he makes is best, we must remember that if we alienate all other countries, we are doomed.  This Independence Day week, we ask: Is this the best course of action for our country, our citizens and for the people of the world? We think not. In the words of George Santayana “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

Lastly, in this situation, we as residents, homeowners, renters, business owners, strive and can do our best to reduce our consumption with our other utilities we pay. Edison, SoCal Gas, Ventura water, etc.,.  We use less, we pay less.

The courage of Ben Carson

What bravery — to propose an abrupt, steep increase in rent for those in HUD’s rent assistance program. Along with eliminating unnecessary things like deductions for children in the home and medical expenses plus the possible imposition of a work requirement, Carson’s proposal will be a great incentive for promoting self-sufficiency, prodding renters to participate more fully in this exciting economy where jobs are plentiful. This could spell an end to an unhealthy dependence on a federal handout. After all, the federal budget must now stretch to accommodate increased tax breaks and military spending. While it’s true that doubters and do-gooders predict a resulting increase in homelessness, we must keep faith in the salutary results of the cuts, although no studies indicate this, remembering how well market values have served us in the past. Moreover fans of this administration need have no fear of any political reprisal, for the

news In Brief MARIJUANA GOES COMMERCIAL IN OJAI

Tiny cabins replace domes at River Haven after several donations

CI HARBOR, CAMARILLO WATER DEEMED SAFE

Transition at transitional living

The Ojai City Council has voted 4-1 to allow recreational marijuana usage for adults 21 years of age and older, the first city in Ventura County to do so. Three marijuana collectives exist in the city, which, prior to the ruling, served only medical marijuana needs: Shangri-La Care Cooperative, Mr. Nice Guy Ojai and Sespe Creek Collective. Chelsea Sutula, president of Sespe Creek Collective, says that the decision is great news. “It allows for a lot of flexibility and it’s recognition of the fact that the game is evolving every day,” said Sutula. She points out that the business licensing and permitting fees in the city are modest, but at the state level, are very high. Opening the door to recreational use will allow Sutula and the other Ojai operators the opportunity to stay in business while catering to a different crowd who may not have medical marijuana licenses. “Ojai recognizes the feasibility of staying in business right now and the burden of regulation,” added Sutula, who notes that combined fees for commercial and medical sales are based on projected gross revenue, which she estimates could top $20,000 a year, not including a $1,000 fee for applying for a license. The new ordinance will allow commercial adult-use dispensaries, limited to three total licenses in the city. Since all three licenses are already claimed, don’t expect a new storefront to pop up any time soon.

iver Haven cannot be seen from Harbor Boulevard in Ventura, hidden among giant reeds. Following a nondescript sandy path into the river bottom will reveal a vibrant community living quietly in transitional housing, made sturdier and appealing by recently constructed Tuff Sheds, or as the residents like to call them, cabins. The transitional living community, established in 2005, received dome-shaped homes in 2009. The unique structures were expected to be viable for up to six years, and until a fire destroyed several, and strong Santa Ana winds felled another, the domes were still standing. Now, thanks to a collaborative fundraising effort spearheaded by the Turning Point Foundation, all save one have been replaced. Residents of River Haven pay around $300 a month to live in the community on city property, and case managers work with the residents to find permanent housing while assisting residents with individual issues related to mental or physical health, drug and alcohol abuse, or unemployment. After the community’s 10-year anniversary in 2015, officials began asking how long the domes could last and where the funds would come from should they need to be replaced. Tuff Shed in Ventura answered at least one of these questions when the company reached out to city officials suggesting that their product might help, as they have in similar communities located in Oakland and Yuba County. The city of Ventura purchased one Tuff Shed for $4,300, but was in need of 19 more to replace the dilapidated U-Domes. As luck would have it, the city and Turning Point waited only a short time for altruistic organizations to jump at the opportunity to assist with the project. One such group, the Women of Jewelia, helped procure one of the original U-Domes in 2009. On Thursday, June 21, the women presented a check in the amount of $6,000 to the Turning Point Foundation Patricia Channer, social media administrator for the Women of Jewelia, says that the money was donated by three couples from Sandusky, Ohio, after the women donated a vacation home stay and other items to the Firelands Regional Medical Center’s “Diamonds for Hope” fundraiser benefiting the hospital’s breast cancer center. The couples visited Ventura and donated to the Women of Jewelia, leaving the decision of whom to donate the funds to up to the women. The club chose River Haven via the Turning Point Foundation as one of the recipients. “These homes have really given people a hands up, not a handout, and everybody has security,” said Channer. “They have rules, regula-

tions and they participate. We’re very glad to be able to support the whole concept 13 years later.” Visitors to the community toured one cabin in particular with a placard above the door reading ,“Camp NAWIC.” The cabin, constructed by girls attending a summer camp hosted by the National Association of Women in Construction, is a 10-by-12, 120-square-foot insulated home. “I will guarantee you that this thing will not leak,” said Laurie Bennett, co-owner of Fence Factory, who volunteered her time to assist in the construction of the building. “It was clear that there was a need for replacement homes,” said Jenn Rodriguez, business development executive with Thousand Oak-based Enhanced Landscape Management and volunteer instructor for the NAWIC summer camp. “We need a project every year for our camp and so it came together naturally.” Twenty-four girls aged 12 to 18 helped construct the building with nearly one dozen adult volunteers. Twelve-year-old Samantha Venegas, a seventh grader, says that she happily took to roofing and enjoyed working on the project. “It makes you feel good, not just pride, knowing that someone is going to be able to sleep and have somewhere to stay instead of being on the streets,” said Venegas. Turning Point Foundation Executive Director Jason Meek echoed the sentiment during a ribbon cutting, signifying the final shed installation. “This really does attest to a very caring city and very caring community,” Meek told a mixed crowd of gathered officials, volunteers and River Haven residents themselves. “This may not be their home permanently, but for now it is their home. They don’t have to think about not having food, not having a safe place to stay at night.” Blaine Elkins, who has lived at River Haven for two years, says that the cabins are a definite improvement. “The sheds are nicer because they’re warmer, they’re not paper thin so that if you’re talking it’s not bothering anybody else, and aesthetically they look better, too,” said Elkins. Elkins calls River Haven the “crown jewel of Ventura County” for the homeless and said that he was moved by the show of support from the community. “It’s heartwarming that there are people out there that do care. Just ✦ because you’re homeless doesn’t make you a bad person.” For more information on the Turning Point Foundation, visit www. turningpointfoundation.org; more information on the Women of Jewelia can be found at www.womenofjewelia.com; and for more information on NAWIC, visit www.nawicventuraoxnard.org.

On June 18, the city of Oxnard received complaints regarding the odor and appearance of the water in the Channel Islands Harbor. Callers claimed that the water had a murky brown color and produced a strong smell. The city tested the water at three different sites and determined that the water was not hazardous to human health, though the city awaits results of tests regarding the presence of nitrogen and phosphorus, nutrients that encourage algae growth. The city urges residents to report water quality issues by calling 805-797-7598. Meanwhile, in Camarillo, the city’s Water Division has released its annual water quality report indicating that it found no violations of Environmental Protection Agency regulations on levels of contaminants for the year beginning in January and ending in December of 2017.

OXNARD RECEIVES $9.5 MILLION FOR WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANT REPAIRS

Gov. Jerry Brown has approved $9.5 million allocated within his State of California budget for repairs and upgrades to the city of Oxnard’s aging wastewater treatment plant. Assemblywoman Jacqui Irwin, D-Thousand Oaks, spearheaded the effort, supported by State Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson, D-Santa Barbara, Assemblywoman Monique Limon, D-Santa Barbara, and Oxnard city officials. “The city has been actively looking for partnerships and cost-effective ways to lower repair costs and lessen the burden on ratepayers,” said Oxnard Mayor Tim Flynn. “These funds will greatly assist in those efforts, ensure critical repairs are completed in the near future, and enable the wastewater system to improve its services for everyone in the city and neighboring communities.” Officials say that the wastewater treatment plant is in dire need of repair to prevent a “disastrous system failure.” The plant also serves the city of Port Hueneme, the Port Hueneme military base, the Channel Islands community services district and residents in Las Posas, serving more than 200,000 people. — Chris O’Neal

On Saturday, June 30, activist groups from around the county staged rallies in Ventura, Oxnard, Ojai and Camarillo to protest the detention of immigrant children and families under President Donald Trump’s zero-tolerance policy for those crossing the border. Protesters in Oxnard marched from The Collection to the highway 101 overpass, wearing white, carrying signs reading “Kids Belong in Homes, not in Cages,” among other slogans. In the afternoon, around 750 protestors lined sidewalks near the Ventura County Government Center in Ventura, according to organizers, and in Camarillo and Ojai, protestors gathered and marched as well. State Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson, D-Santa Barbara, joined about 100 people Saturday at a park adjoining The Collection shopping center to protest the Trump Administration’s controversial “zero tolerance” immigration policy. “This administration that takes children out of the hands of their mothers, what kind of America is this? Not my America,” Jackson said, reciting the famous poem inscribed at the foot of the Statue of Liberty that welcomes refugees and other immigrants. “It is those who come from other countries, other places, who have been welcomed by those words,” Jackson said. “My ancestors, and I’ll bet all of yours, because we are a nation of immigrants.” The protest ran in tandem with national and international events. In Los Angeles, California Governor contender Gavin Newsom spoke to a crowd of about 8,000. In Texas, demonstrators gathered in McAllen, near to where a camp had been erected to house immigrant children. Internationally, protests were held in major cities including Paris and London.

Tell us about how and when you and José Andrés began working together.

JASON COLLIS: My relationship with Chef José Andrés and World Central Kitchen (WCK) started in December when the Thomas Fire hit Ventura County. Longtime friend Susanne Lammot, a board member of the Boys and Girls Club and local physician, connected me with Nate Mook, the executive director of WCK, through her nephew, who is friends with Nate. Susanne’s nephew mentioned WCK wanted to help with the fire and needed to connect with a local chef to get the effort started. Susanne private messaged me on Facebook at 10 p.m. that night, and the next day we meet with Nate at the Crowne Plaza for a meeting and activated the Relief Kitchen at the San Buenaventura Mission that day. When I saw the magnitude of the project I called Chef Tim Kilcoyne to ask him to assist me with leading the effort. Father Tom [Elewaut] gracefully, without any hesitation, donated the O’Brien Hall to set up the relief kitchen. From there our relation began. TIM KILCOYNE: World Central Kitchen reached out to Jason Collis (who had a mutual friend with the director of WCK) to ask about starting a kitchen to feed people in need. Jason reached out to me to see about the two of us working together to get it all going. Within just a couple of days we had a kitchen, purveyors,

eruptions in Hawaii and Guatemala. For the two culinary professionals, they are both walking a tight rope of keeping up with the demands of the work, the emotional toll of the disasters at hand and maintaining their family life back in Ventura County. This week, they share their journeys of being on hand during the worst of times for others.

volunteers and got to cooking.

The World Central Kitchen is providing relief efforts in Guatemala and Hawaii. How did you become involved?

COLLIS: I received a call from Nate Mook, the executive director, asking me if I would be interested in assisting with relief effort in Guatemala. I said yes and then he said, I can get you on a plane tomorrow morning. I was catering an event in Los Angeles and passed over the event to our head chef and sous chef and went home and packed up and was on a plane to Guatemala the next morning at 2:30 a.m. KILCOYNE: WCK and I talked a few days after the volcanic eruption in Hawaii and felt there was a need to start a kitchen to provide relief for everyone that had lost their homes. I flew out the next day and worked to get a kitchen open and started cooking. Two days after the volcanic eruption in Guatemala, WCK said they needed me there to help with relief. Currently my involvement is one of their leads on the ground that helps get the operation up and running.

What was it like when you first arrived in Guatemala? Was the volcano still erupting?

COLLIS: The volcano’s original eruption was the week prior. When I arrived a smaller eruption occurred. The funny thing

was, once I landed I received a call to rent a truck and drive to the central kitchen, which was located in Antigua. If you have ever been to Guatemala you’ll know, driving in Guatemala City and the rest of the country isn’t a cup of tea. Just imagine NASCAR with no lanes or rules! To top it off, the truck was stick and I haven’t driven stick shift for over 20 years. Let’s just say, the first couple hours were fun! Once I hit the kitchen I started to work to understand the ordering, process of the kitchen space we were renting, and get to know the volunteers. Menu development needed to be established and ordering procedures. That night I went out on deliveries to shelters and nearby villages to see the need directly. It was very disturbing to see how many were displaced and how many have lost family members. KILCOYNE: It has been interesting seeing the two volcanos in different areas and how they act and effects on the communities. In both areas I didn’t have much time upon first arrival to get out and look around much. I just jumped right into things to get it going. In Hawaii the big issues were the fissures that kept popping up causing destruction. Every day more people were being evacuated or losing their homes.

What are your duties? What is an average day like?

COLLIS: Once I arrived, systems were being set up; but with


what the future will be for the displaced. From what I have seen, some villages will never be available to be inhabited again; where do these people go in a country with lack of work and social services? How will these families have the ability to afford housing? And if they can afford housing, where do they call home, because home isn’t there and can’t be rebuilt. KILCOYNE: Things have been really difficult. I have been away from my family for practically 50 days. I have been away from my restaurant and team. Some of the things I have seen over the last few months have been really hard to see. Part of the emotions is obviously from talking to people and hearing their stories of what they have lost and taking me back to the stories I heard during the fires. It really does weigh you down thinking about it all but then you see the community coming together to volunteer and it turns everything around.

Any idea when the work will be completed?

OPPOSITE: A building in Los Lotes, Guatemala buried in debris from the pyroclastic flows from the volcanic eruption; once it rained it created a mud slide of debris flowing down and buried the villages even more.

PHOTO BY DAN MARTENSEN LEFT: World Central Kitchen’s Nate Mook in front, Sam Bloch and Chef José Andrés ventures out in Los Lotes, Guatemala, days after the volcanic eruption. PHOTO BY DAN MARTENSEN the complications of logistics, access to products, a system was not accomplished. Antigua is an hour away from Guatemala City where all the vendors of produce, meat and goods are located. Only 40 miles away it can take up to four to five hours, depending on traffic, to drive to Antigua. I was first put in charge of setting up inventory system and ordering system and reworking the menu towards local flavors with the direction of Chef José Andrés. It took a week to set up a system that works in an environment where roads close due to protests, chicken buses flipping over and stalling while blocking the road. I learned quickly, “I’ll be there in an hour” means five hours later if you’re lucky, or most likely tomorrow. To top it off, all the vendors wanted to be paid in cash. This created a nightmare of cash flow with limits of exchanging currency. We set up relationships with local business people who helped us use their accounts so we can wire money directly to them and have credit terms.  With that said, it took about a week to get systems in place; and in the meantime we were opening additional kitchens. We currently have three emergency kitchens, with Antigua being the main hub for prep and orders, six food trucks, 30 shelters that we are supporting and have served over 130,000 to date and are averaging over 10,000 meals a day! My average day starts at 5:30 a.m. to open the kitchen and get the kitchen crew going. Then I meet with volunteers to get them going on their daily prep making 2,000 ham and cheese sandwiches, slicing fruit and organizing. I then check in with the delivery coordinator to go over delivery times, numbers

and locations. I also meet with our warehouse volunteer to go over shipments, deliveries, inventory and what needs to be transported to other kitchens. I then check back into the kitchen to make sure we are ready for our first delivery, which is at 8 a.m. I oversee the packaging of the food and loading of the transportation vehicles. Once the first order is out I work on inventory to get our orders checked in and place new orders as needed. Our second delivery occurs at 10 a.m. and another at 12 p.m. [noon] During 12-3p.m. I am paying vendors, checking orders in and putting out fires as they arise (like gas running out on Sunday and no one delivers on Sundays). At 4 p.m. our dinner deliveries start. After dinner goes out I meet with kitchen to finish prep and plan out the next day’s duties. We then have a team meeting with all head volunteers to go over the next day’s deliveries and needs. We end our day at 7 p.m. now. First two weeks we were leaving at 10-12 a.m. [midnight] because systems were being put in place.     KILCOYNE: My job is to help facilitate the opening of the relief kitchens as well as helping to find locations in need.  Each day is spent figuring out menus, volunteers, helping to deliver food to shelters and always working to see if there is any other locations that we can help feed.

How are locals handling the aftermath of the volcano?

COLLIS: Total devastation. People who had nothing to start with, now really have nothing. Most farmers have no farms to tend, no home and no village to come back to, most likely never.

Before, they had a roof and a place to sleep; now they are sleeping in schools and tents. One man had been working day and night for two weeks, digging, trying to find his family’s remains. We offered him a sandwich as his only source of energy; that sandwich was made by the hands of volunteers. The rescue workers are stopping and declaring the villages as the graves of the hundreds to thousands who have died and have not been recovered. No answers three weeks later have been made of how to relocate 4,000-5,000 who have nowhere to go and nowhere to work. KILCOYNE: In both locations the locals have really reminded me of Ventura. Emotions are high, however everyone is smiling .... That might just be the effect of us bringing them a meal. But if it is, we are doing our job.

What are you experiencing emotionally in your work right now?

COLLIS: My personal emotions during this relief effort are a roller coaster. I have times of pure joy seeing the smiles on the faces of the children once we deliver hot food and fresh fruit to them. Gratitude when I see a family cut their vacation short to help volunteer with us. Sadness when I see a family grieving from the loss of a family member. Despair when I see the look on the faces of the elders pains me as they are wondering what the next steps will be with no answers. Then I have times of anger when I see insufficiency of government and some nonprofits who use the tragedy as propaganda and a way to raise funds that aren’t being used for those affected by the tragedy. Then worry about

COLLIS: The work here will be a long-term plan to feed all of those displaced. As of right now we do not have a set end date as the shelters are still open and people are still in need of food. Our long-term plan will be to provide kitchen equipment and resources to those families displaced so they have a long-term solution for fresh hot food. I will be here till July 1st and returning on July 5th. I don’t know how long I’ll be here but I will stay until we enter the longterm phase and all shelters are closed. KILCOYNE: Currently we don’t have an end date in mind. As long as there is a need WCK will have a presence and provide. When I first went out the only thing I had as a return-to-California date was June 24th for my son’s first birthday.

What are you learning about the different cultures?

COLLIS: Guatemalan culture is one of specific tastes and traditional dishes. I learned they are very picky on their flavors and how the food is served. I was able to brush up on regional cultural dishes as I was well-versed with Alte Verde regional cuisine but not the national dishes of the Fuego region. The culture as well does not have a fear of time as we do as Americans. They call it Guatemalan time, which can be an hour later or a day later. Sense of urgency doesn’t exist. It’s a life of less stress and non-worry of time. But when you are organizing a disaster relief those traits become an obstacle you need to overcome with respect and dignity. Pride and culture are strong, and respecting the cultural is very important. Rumors run wild, and because of a lack of leadership these rumors become reality to some. KILCOYNE: Again, it has actually been pretty amazing to see California, Hawaii and then Guatemala; all the communities really came together and supported each other. Each location, we are receiving tons of food donations as well as volunteers showing up to cook.

How can someone from Ventura County help?

COLLIS: Right now there is a high need for cash donation. Because of all that is going on in the world and with immigration in the U.S. this disaster hasn’t had global media traction and the amount of donations given are the lowest of any relief effort, including the Thomas Fire. But the expenses for a relief effort on non-American soil are actually more expensive so the need for cash donations are very important to create a sustainable long-term feeding solution for thousands displaced. Go to World Central Kitchen, worldcentralkitchen.org. KILCOYNE: The best way to help out with the organization is to visit www.worldcentralkitchen.org and donate. Or just help spread the word about the organization if you are not able to donate. FF

Ron Feltner and Jessi May Stevenson star in SPTC’s Constellations.

onstage Constellations at Santa Paula Theater Center by Emily Dodi

A

collaboration with director David Ralphe results in a mesmerizing pas de deux in which they move through scene after scene, across the universes, shifting gears in an instant, never missing a beat. Lighting design by Gary Richardson and sound design by Kevin Kahm and Alan Noel help us navigate time, space and scenario. Costume designer Barbara Pedziwiatr and prop master Gail Heck round out the talented crew. Constellations takes place in England, so the actors adopt accents for their roles, but the varying success of the affectation is irrelevant. The language is key, not the accents, and Feltner and Stevenson nail the meaning of the words and the emotions behind them. Feltner is always fun to watch and here he imbues each version of Roland with distinct and charismatic shading. As Marianne, Stevenson shines as an icy academic in one universe, a lovable nerd in another, a devastated woman battling a debilitating illness in the next. (The scenes of Roland and Marianne confronting her diagnosis and its different outcomes are the most powerful in the play.) In a landscape filled with musicals and comedies boasting large casts and big production numbers, Constellations is a refreshing change of pace that should not be missed. It’s just two people, a black box and a sky full of stars. We sail through the universes with them, rooting for them all the way. It doesn’t matter if you understand theoretical physics — or even love, for that matter. The premise of Constellations may be rooted in scientific theory that could make your head spin, but at its core, its ✦ power is in its simplicity.

s if love in one universe isn’t complicated enough, imagine a multiverse where an infinite number of scenarios plays out in a million possible ways. Or not at all. That’s the theory behind Constellations, Nick Payne’s “time-bending romantic drama,” onstage at Santa Paula Theater Center through July 29. Mixing romance and science, specifically theoretical physics and the relationship(s) of Roland and Marianne, Constellations plays with the idea, held by a number of rather brilliant people, that there are, as Payne explains, “an unimaginably vast ensemble of parallel universes” in which exists “every choice, every decision you’ve ever made and never made.” Put more simply by Michael Longhurst, who directed the play in New York, Constellations is a story of “Boy meets girl. Boy meets girl again. Boy meets girl again . . ..” The “boy” and “girl” are Roland, a beekeeper, and Marianne, a theoretical physicist. We see them meet for the first time at a mutual friend’s barbecue, and then we see them meet again and again. Sometimes they hit it off. Sometimes not. What unfolds are rich little vignettes that peek into different ways their story plays out. In some they are happy. In some they almost destroy each other. In yet others, Roland and Marianne miss each other completely, like shooting stars in the night. They fall in and out of love, face illness, contemplate death and dance with time. Constellations through July 29 at Santa Paula TheJessi May Stevenson and Ron Feltner embrace Payne’s work wholeheartedly, diving into the complexity ater Center, 125 S. Seventh St., Santa Paula.

So I’m back with the summer blockbuster follow-up sequel, but the timing wasn’t right until this year.

assortment of classic songs across multiple genres, but spotlight their own individual recordings as well. A native of Encino, Koz started performing on saxophone as a member of the school jazz band at William Howard Taft High School in Woodland Hills. He graduated from UCLA in 1986 with a degree in mass communications before going pro as a member of jazz legend Bobby Caldwell’s touring band. He built his reputation further as a popular session musician for several bands, including those of fellow jazzman Jeff Lorber and pop star Richard Marx, and even played in the house band of Pat Sajak’s short-lived CBS late-night talk show. But his biggest move came in 1990, when he decided to pursue a solo career — and immediately scored a Capitol Records contract. “It was not really a decision to be in the smooth style, but more like playing music that’s in my heart, like Tower of Power, Earth Wind and Fire and Chicago, more than straight, traditional jazz,” explains Koz. “Smooth jazz is really a radio format more than a style of music, as it’s really just contemporary taking on elements of R&B and rock fused with melody and a rhythmic drum element, rather than emphasizing improvisational playing.” The past decade has brought a couple of landmark changes to the life of the 49-year-old Koz, particularly his decision to publicly come out as gay at age 40. Although he had long worried that such an announcement would hurt his career, he admits being surprised that there was “zero impact” professionally. “The only impact was on me, because I could be a whole person, not two people all the time,” says Koz. “I’m married to my saxophone,” he says. “I grew up in a time very different from now, and so I’d come out to friends and family but not publicly until I was 40. It’s been eight or nine years, and the only impact has been creating a lot more wholeness in my life.” ✦ The Dave Koz and Friends Summer Horns Tour on Friday, July 6, at 8 p.m. at the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza, 2100 E.

Wild and Scenic Film Festival to embrace the great outdoors by Kateri Wozny

F

or those who love being in Mother Nature and want to enjoy watching films underneath the stars this summer, tickets are now on sale for the Ventura Land Trust’s (VLT) ninth annual Wild and Scenic Film Festival on Saturday, Aug. 18. The festival is being held outdoors for the first time at the Ventura County Credit Union corporate office. Attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets to sit on while viewing 12 award-winning short films on a giant inflatable screen. “It’s been a great boon for us to get people to think about the great outdoors,” said Gary Bednorz, who has been on the film festival committee since its inception. “Ventura County Credit Union has this great lot that overlooks the ocean.” Bednorz said that for the festival, which originates in Nevada City, Nevada, about 400 films are submitted. Of those, 150 films are selected for viewing. The common issues of energy, food systems, biodiversity, climate change and protection and restoration of wild lands and wild waters are explored. About 60 selected films are brought on tour across the country, and the VLT narrows down the films that relate to the environmental efforts it supports. Some of the films this year include Imagination, Lost in Light, Where the Wild Things Play, The Nature of Maps and A Letter to Congress.

“There’s an environmental lean to it; we are all open-space huggers,” Bednorz said. “We do this more as a ‘funraiser’ than a fundraiser.” Performances include singer/songwriters Bill Jones and J. Peter Boles and cover band Mid Life Crisis, along with food trucks, alcoholic beverages, outdoor games and raffle items such as original artwork, outdoor gear and dining certificates. All proceeds support the VLT. “The VLT is going to continue to work with the community to acquire open space and keep Ventura the ideal seaside community that everyone relishes,” Bednorz said. VLT is also looking for about 100 volunteers to assist with setup, check-in, beer and wine sales and serving, raffle ticket sales, cleanup and game coordination. Volunteers have the opportunity to watch the films for free. “We hope that people are educated and inspired by the environmental films and see the connection between the greater global environmental movement and the work that the Ventura Land Trust is doing here in Ventura County,” said Adrienne Stephens, film festival organizer and development and marketing director ♦ for the VLT. The Wild and Scenic Film Festival takes place on Saturday, Aug. 18, 5-8 p.m. at the Ventura County Credit Union corporate office, 2575 Vista Del Mar Drive, Ventura.

Sicario: Day of the Soldado

Long on guns, short on logic by Tim Pompey

tjpompey@gmail.com Sicario: Day of the Soldado Directed by Stefano Sollima Starring: Benecio del Toro, Josh Brolin, Isabela Moner Rated R for strong violence, bloody images and language 2 hrs. 2 mins.

It’s

frightening to think that there just may be a Matt Graver somewhere in the bowels of the White House waiting on an order to carry out an assassination plot hatched by the U.S. government. In a case of art imitating life, we get Sicario: Day of the Soldado. It’s a follow-up to the thriller Sicario released in 2015, a fine film that received three academy award nominations. This Sicario is less focused and more driven by its brutality. It makes its point not because the film is insightful, but because it uses our worst fears of terrorists and Mexican Mafiosi to turn the U.S. government into a vigilante force in which legality exists only as a term in the dictionary. The film opens with a terrorist attack on a grocery store in Kansas City. Coincidentally, a terrorist also blows himself up during a border raid on illegal immigrants. This leads the U.S. Secretary of Defense James Riley (Matthew Modine) to assemble a team of generals and high-ranking officials. Their conclusion: Mexican drug cartels are smuggling terrorists into the U.S. Under the guise of starting a cartel war, they hire Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) to assemble a team of CIA operatives to kidnap cartel leader Carlos Reyes’ daughter Isabel (Isabela Moner). Part of this team includes sicario (hitman in Spanish) Alejandro Gillick (Benecio del Toro), presumably to give Reyes a reason to blame the kidnapping on other Mexicans. The plan is to take Isabel back to Texas and stage a very public rescue. But the plan goes off the rails when

Graver’s team and the Mexican federales escort her back to her father across the border. The federales open fire on Graver’s team and the daughter escapes into the Mexican desert. You could legitimately ask the question: With an operation this hasty and this complicated, how could it not go wrong? And you would be right. This is a story meant to fail in all the obvious ways. The more failures, the more bullets. At its heart, Sicario is a questionable action film dressed up to look like a lesson in political theater. Italian director Stefano Sollima (Gomorrah) brings a sense of style to this madness. Even with the story spinning wildly like a top, he manages to capture the grit of the Mexican landscape and the desperate plight of the illegal immigrant. His use of light and darkness, twilight and headlights is atmospheric, even stunning. As for the rest of the political machinations, you might need to keep notes as the camera jumps from country to country and border to border. Not surprisingly, it seems that the writer, Taylor Sheridan, is doing his best to give the U.S. government a black eye, especially in the dialogue between Graver and his CIA handler, Cynthia Foards (Catherine Keener). What’s skimmed over in these conversations is the amorality of all parties involved: The U.S., the CIA, the Border Patrol and Gillick, who is, after all, a brutal assassin. The irony is that he becomes the film’s father figure to Isabel. How these two extremes work is a question left unanswered. The film’s marketing caption — “No rules this time” — seems to apply to the story itself. It won’t make much sense, but perhaps in the action one might find some entertainment? Is that what you would call this? Yes, probably, but a better storyline might have improved this film’s outlook. It’s a stretch, to be sure, but there are some riveting moments with bullets and blood flying, and a suggestion that there will be a sequel. After all, it seems that sicarios, even the ones who are beaten and shot, can’t really be killed. Del Toro in particular is one tough hombre and not a bad father, if you don’t mind the fact that he kills ♦ people for a living.

At its heart, Sicario is a questionable action film dressed up to look like a lesson in political theater.

has been quite an adventure. From rolling greenbelts of ag and open space to clusters of strip malls, in which some of the occupants wilted away a while ago, there is something rather innocent and pure, living in a region bordering denser suburban and urban cities. With that, restaurateurs have a unique challenge in staying afloat and offering something attractive to locals. And so, Kiku Japanese Grill found a niche, fast-food sushi. It was a Wednesday evening when we found a place to park in the little mall just off the 118 at Los Angeles Avenue. There was a fair stream of customers coming in to order to-go or to eat there, but this place was made for people who want their food fast. Without sounding negative, the best way to describe Kiku is that it has a feel similar to a mall food court: four salads on display (the Kiku salad plate offers a healthy spoonful of each for $5.79), a place to pick up orders with plastic silverware and condiments easily accessible, and a kitchen behind the counter with staff equipped for efficient service. The seating is open with booths and chairs but nothing really bold in nature for décor. For our dinner, we chose the sushi sampler with pot stickers, the tempura and steak plate with a side of egg rolls and pot stickers, chirashi donburi and the Kiku salad with two sodas, a fountain drink and a Japanese

fruit soda, which had a certain strange peachy aftertaste. I wouldn’t mind trying the soda again but I might want to figure out how to translate the writing on the can so I can know for sure what I just had. Or how to ask for it again. The guy at the counter, however, will know what you mean if you describe it. I could have sworn that it didn’t take longer than washing my hands and picking up utensils before our order came out. Mind you, this place specializes in affordable sushi made fast. And so the meals were just as expected. The sushi sampler had the standard offering: shrimp, salmon, ahi tuna and yellow tail sashimi over sticky white rice with crisp pork pot stickers and a bowl of soothing miso. The chirashi donburi featured salmon, ahi, yellow tail and albacore atop field greens and seasoned sticky white rice with fresh sprouts and a spoonful of spicy crab salad. The crab salad was my favorite part of the meal. The teriyaki steak was tender and not too sweet, with a big helping of tempura vegetables and rice. The real treat, however, was this great deal of a mound of salad — bowtie pasta and corn salad, peanut coleslaw, field greens and a tangy tomato and onion salad. If you are stressing about money and being hungry, it’s a pretty satisfying meal. While we spent $50 on our entire meal, we had about two days’ worth of leftovers to work through, though I wouldn’t recommend leaving the fresh fish for later. And just like that, like a flash in a pan, we were full and headed out with a couple of to-go bags. If you know what to expect, you won’t be disappointed. I wouldn’t recommend a romantic anniversary dinner here, but for something convenient and affordable and if sushi is a must, Kiku is a good place to go. ♦

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY ARIES

(March 21-April 19):

Twentieth-century French novelist Marcel Proust described nineteenth-century novelist Gustave Flaubert as a trottoire roulant, or “rolling sidewalk”: plodding, toneless, droning. Meanwhile, critic Roger Shattuck compared Proust’s writing to an “electric generator” from which flows a “powerful current always ready to shock not only our morality but our very sense of humanity.” In the coming weeks, I encourage you to find a middle ground between Flaubert and Proust. See if you can be moderately exciting, gently provocative and amiably enchanting. My analysis of the cosmic rhythms suggests that such an approach is likely to produce the best long-term results.

TAURUS

(April 20-May 20):

You remind me of Jack, the 9-year-old Taurus kid next door, who took up skateboarding on the huge trampoline his two moms put in their backyard. Like him, you seem eager to travel in two different modes at the same time. (And I’m glad to see you’re being safe; you’re not doing the equivalent of, say, having sex in a car or breakdancing on an escalator.) When Jack first began, he had difficulty in coordinating the bouncing with the rolling. But after a while he got good at it. I expect that you, too, will master your complex task.

GEMINI

(May 21-June 20):

From the day you were born, you have been cultivating a knack for mixing and blending. Along the way, you have accomplished mergers that would have been impossible for a lot of other people. Some of your experiments in amalgamation are legendary. If my astrological assessments are accurate, the year 2019 will bring forth some of your all-time most marvelous combinations and unifications. I expect

you are even now setting the stage for those future fusions; you are building the foundations that will make them natural and inevitable. What can you do in the coming weeks to further that preparation?

CANCER

(June 21-July 22):

An open letter to Cancerians from Rob Brezsny’s mother, Felice: I want you to know that I played a big role in helping my Cancerian son become the empathetic, creative, thoughtful, crazy character he is today. I nurtured his idiosyncrasies. I made him feel secure and well-loved. My care freed him to develop his unusual ideas and life. So as you read Rob’s horoscopes, remember that there’s part of me inside him. And that part of me is nurturing you just as I once nurtured him. I and he are giving you love for the quirky, distinctive person you actually are, not some fantasy version of you. I and he are helping you feel more secure and well-appreciated. Now I encourage you to cash in on all that support. As Rob has told me, it’s time for you Cancerians to reach new heights in your drive to express your unique selves.

LEO

(July 23-Aug. 22):

The ghost orchid is a rare white wildflower that disappeared from the British countryside around 1986. The nation’s botanists declared it officially extinct in 2005. But four years later, a tenacious amateur located a specimen growing in the West Midlands area. The species wasn’t gone forever, after all. I foresee a comparable revival for you in the coming weeks, Leo. An interesting influence or sweet thing that you imagined to be permanently defunct may return to your life. Be alert!

VIRGO

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22):

The ancient Greek poet Sappho described “a sweet-apple turning red high on the tip of the top-

most branch.” The apple pickers left it there, she suggested, but not because they missed seeing it. It was just too high. “They couldn’t reach it,” wrote Sappho. Let’s use this scenario as a handy metaphor for your current situation, Virgo. I am assigning you the task of doing whatever is necessary to fetch that glorious, seemingly unobtainable sweet-apple. It may not be easy. You’ll probably need to summon extra ingenuity to reach it, as well as some as-yet unguessed form of help. (The Sappho translation is by Julia Dubnoff.)

LIBRA

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22):

Is there any prize more precious than knowing your calling? Can any other satisfaction compare with the joy of understanding why you’re here on earth? In my view, it’s the supreme blessing: to have discovered the tasks that can ceaselessly educate and impassion you; to do the work or play that enables you to offer your best gifts; to be intimately engaged with an activity that consistently asks you to overcome your limitations and grow into a more complete version of yourself. For some people, their calling is a job: marine biologist, kindergarten teacher, advocate for the homeless. For others, it’s a hobby, like long-distance running, bird-watching or mountain-climbing. St. Therese of Lisieux said, “My calling is love!” Poet Marina Tsvetaeva said her calling was “To listen to my soul.” Do you know yours, Libra? Now is an excellent time to either discover yours or home in further on its precise nature.

SCORPIO

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21):

Have you entertained any high-quality fantasies about faraway treasures lately? Have you delivered inquiring communiqués to any promising beauties who may ultimately offer you treats? Have you made long-distance inquiries about speculative possibilities that could be inclined to travel in your

direction from their frontier sanctuaries? Would you consider making some subtle change in yourself so that you’re no longer forcing the call of the wild to wait and wait and wait?

SAGITTARIUS

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21):

If a down-to-earth spiritual teacher advised you to go on a five-day meditation retreat in a sacred sanctuary, would you instead spend five days carousing with meth addicts in a cheap hotel? If a close friend confessed a secret she had concealed from everyone for years, would you unleash a nervous laugh and change the subject? If you read a horoscope that told you that now is a favorable time to cultivate massive amounts of reverence, devotion, respect, gratitude, innocence and awe, would you quickly blank it out of your mind and check your Instagram and Twitter accounts on your phone?

CAPRICORN

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19):

A typical working couple devotes an average of four minutes per day to focused conversation with each other. And it’s common for a child and parent to engage in meaningful communication for just 20 minutes per week. I bring these sad facts to your attention, Capricorn, because I want to make sure you don’t embody them in the coming weeks. If you hope to attract the best of life’s blessings, you will need to give extra time and energy to the fine art of communing with those you care about.

AQUARIUS

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18):

Allergies, irritants, stings, hypersensitivities: Sometimes you can make these annoyances work in your behalf. For example, my allergy to freshly cut grass meant that when I was a teenager, I never had to waste my Saturday afternoons mowing the lawn in front of my family’s suburban home. And the weird itching that plagued me whenever I got into the

vicinity of my first sister’s fiancé: If I had paid attention to it, I wouldn’t have lent him the $350 that he never repaid. So my advice, my itchy friend, is to be thankful for the twitch and the prickle and the pinch. In the coming days, they may offer you tips and clues that could prove valuable.

PISCES

(Feb. 19-March 20):

Are you somehow growing younger? Your stride seems bouncier and your voice sounds more buoyant. Your thoughts seem fresher and your eyes brighter. I won’t be surprised if you buy yourself new toys or jump in mud puddles. What’s going on? Here’s my guess: you’re no longer willing to sleepwalk your way through the most boring things about being an adult. You may also be ready to wean yourself from certain responsibilities unless you can render them pleasurable at least some of the time. I hope so. It’s time to bring more fun and games into your life. Homework: Is there an area of your life where your effects are different from your intentions? Testify at Freewillastrology.com.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorderís office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code.

The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call or visit the Internet Web site, using the file number assigned to this case 17-005279. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. www. homesearch.com 800-758-8052 or Aztec Foreclosure Corporation (877) 257-0717 www.aztectrustee.com DATE: June 15, 2018 AZTEC FORECLOSURE CORPORATION Elaine Malone Assistant Secretary / Assistant Vice President Aztec Foreclosure Corporation, 3636 N.
