OPINION Editorial

Suicide, statistics and solutions In one week, two celebrities, fashion designer Kate Spade, 55, and beloved chef and TV personality, Anthony Bourdain, 61, died of suicide. At best, it was shocking; at worst, millions of people are coming to grips with the idea that a successful life with fans, money and world adventures isn’t enough. To quote Jim Carrey after Robin Williams 2014 suicide at the age of 63: “I think everybody should get rich and famous and do everything they ever dreamed of so they can see that it’s not the answer.” In trying to rationalize the reasons behind suicide, we look to statistics and studies. First, the data. When looking at the suicide rate by country for 2018, 177 countries were analyzed by the World Population Review (worldpopulationreview.com), which uses data from the United Nations, and the countries with the lowest suicide rates aren’t necessarily the richest or the happiest. Countries with less than three suicides per 100,000 include the Caribbean Islands, Pakistan, Egypt and Indonesia. The United States ranks around the middle of the list at 14.3 per 100,000 while Sri Lanka has the highest rate at 35.3 per 100,000. Included between the U.S. and Sri Lanka are the Central African Republic, Sweden, India, France, Russia, Japan and South Korea. There is no clear-cut answer for these rankings, though it’s important to know that not all countries report deaths in the same fashion so certain deaths by suicide may be referred to as accidental or otherwise. In the United States, in comparison of the 50 states by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Montana, Alaska and Wyoming top the per capita ranking at roughly 25 suicides per 100,000, with California at 10.5 and New Jersey the lowest at 7.2; in 2016, 44,965 died of suicide. A closer look at California, however, reveals that rural counties of less than 175,000 people have higher suicide rates than more densely populated urban counties. In the U.S. overall, including California, white middle-aged males aged 45-64 were cited as the most vulnerable group in 2014 with a rate of approximately 30 per 100,000, according to the National Center for Health Statistics. Veterans have a 22 percent higher risk than non-veteran adults, according to U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs. The VA actually calculated that 1999 to 2010, approximately 22 veterans died of suicide daily. With all the data, it’s easy to get lost in the numbers and what it all means in try-

Letters Desperately needed law As a California volunteer who worked hard to help pass the End of Life Option Act that allows mentally capable terminally ill adults with six months or less to live, I am outraged that a judge issued an order to overturn the law on May 15 in Riverside.

ing to address it. There are countless studies and theories as to how mental illness, poverty, occupation, social connection, etc., pertains to suicide, but there are so many variables, it’s nearly impossible to find a concrete path to saving all lives. Plus, not all depressed people are suicidal. If a person admits that he or she is depressed, treating a depressed person as suicidal may do more harm than good. While we can only do so much to change or prevent chemical imbalances in the brain or poverty, aging, skill sets, etc., we can try a little harder to care about and understand each other, especially if a person is seeking more engagement. To put into context the power we have to help one another, Cigna health services provider conducted a survey, releasing the results last month. The survey found: Nearly half of Americans report sometimes or always feeling alone (46 percent) or left out (47 percent). One in four Americans (27 percent) rarely or never feel as though there are people who really understand them. Two in five Americans sometimes or always feel that their relationships are not meaningful (43 percent) and that they are isolated from others (43 percent). One in five people report that they rarely or never feel close to people (20 percent) or feel as though there are people they can talk to (18 percent). Americans who live with others are less likely to be lonely (average loneliness score of 43.5) compared to those who live alone (46.4). However, this does not apply to single parents/guardians (average loneliness score of 48.2) – even though they live with children, they are more likely to be lonely. Only around half of Americans (53 percent) have meaningful in-person social interactions, such as having an extended conversation with a friend or spending quality time with family, on a daily basis. Generation Z (adults ages 18-22) is the loneliest generation and claims to be in worse health than older generations. Social media use alone is not a predictor of loneliness; respondents defined as very heavy users of social media have a loneliness score (43.5) that is not markedly different from the score of those who never use social media (41.7). The solution? Love unconditionally and put some effort into more real life social interconnectedness. It may not just be someone else’s life you save. It may be your own.

ple are dying now who are suffering without relief and want the option to end their unbearable suffering. My husband, whose life was ended last December because of the Thomas Fire in Ventura when he got pneumonia from the soot and ash and couldn’t recover, also worked hard in 2015 to help pass the law. He had cancer and didn’t plan on getting a prescription for the medicine yet, but it gave him and me much comfort to know that, if necessary, his doctor

would provide a prescription for him to die peacefully and have his friends and family nearby. It made every day better. I thanked Attorney General Xavier Becerra for appealing that outrageous court decision to stop the law that our elected officials voted on and Gov. Jerry Brown signed. This was the will of the majority of the constituents of officials who voted for the law. Becerra appealed that decision, but the appeal won’t be heard till June 29 and that’s unconscionable for a law that was passed and signed by Brown. I hope this is settled quickly and that the important law is available to those who desperately want and need it. Debbie Diamond Ventura

Coffee Bar Economics, Part 3 by Raymond Freeman

T

his concludes the summary of my economic presentations. Globalization is depicted as an unstoppable force that somehow fell out of the sky. That is entirely false. Republicans fell over themselves to admit China to the World Trade Organization (WTO). Both parties fell over themselves to set up the North American Free Trade Agreement. All this was done under the banner of “free trade.” Now there are three types of free trade: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. The classic example of The Good is 18th century Britain trading wool for wine with Portugal without tariffs (customs duties). Everyone got richer, including sheep farmers in Portugal, who grew grapes instead. The Bad is like Britain and India. Britain’s mechanized textile industry overwhelmed India’s handlooms and spinning wheels. As a colony, India was powerless to stop it. The Ugly is like America’s trade with China. We import far more than we export. But letting China into the WTO was America’s own choice (well, the choice of the top 1 percent, at least). Yes, consumer prices were lowered, but the resulting unemployment crimps America’s

economy. Too bad; the wealthy and their Republican lapdogs cry all the way to the bank. They are perfectly happy to sell Americans down the river, whether or not we become an economic colony of China, as long as they get richer. Next my audiences consider the deficit on current account. This includes the trade deficit. In 2017 that was $566 trillion. We import far more than we export. Thus, the red ink is far greater than the black ink. But the current account must balance (Accounting 101). To scrape up more black ink, America resorts to the following deadbeat measures: Flog the family silver: We sell assets such as real estate and entire companies (e.g., Budweiser). Profits go abroad. Pawn the furniture: We lease infrastructure to foreign “partners.” Rents go abroad. Take in lodgers: Foreigners build factories and employ people. Fine, but Americans become second-class citizens. Profits go abroad. Tap rich uncles: Foreigners finance our overspending. We give them IOUs. Interest goes abroad. As a result, former Rep. Alan Grayson, D-Florida, once an economist, says one-seventh of America’s assets are now owned by foreigners. Moreover, profits, rents and interest flowing abroad siphon spending out of America’s

economy, thereby crimping it more. So, how did this happen? Brace yourself for another dirty secret: America’s trade policy was redesigned to solely benefit the top 1 percent. America’s billionaires realized they had more in common with China’s billionaires than people like you. They redesigned America’s economy around cheap Asian labor. Here I show audiences grim lists of the jobs lost. Trump tapped into this at Rust Belt rallies. Hillary Clinton did not. (She tapped into Wall Street instead.) America’s industrial policy is a bad joke. Firing millions of American workers supposedly frees them up for more productive work. But when did you see full-page ads from Boeing, crying out for workers to build its 787 Dreamliner? Never. That too is mostly outsourced. High-paying aerospace jobs in Ventura County almost all gone. As to Ventura County’s economy, remember, VC is part of California. California is part of America. Ineluctably, our problems are tied to America’s problems. America has low wages due to Reaganomics and thus high poverty. California has low wages and high real estate prices, producing the nation’s highest poverty rate. VC has skyhigh home prices. The U.S. median home price

is $188,900; for VC this is $592,218 (Zillow), i.e., 3.1 times higher. But wages in VC are not 3.1 times higher. In 2017, America’s median personal income was $31,100; for VC this was $38,000, i.e., 1.2 times higher. Due to its pricy real estate, therefore, VC is hit especially hard by Reaganomics. Based on workers’ productivity, the Economic Policy Institute has calculated that wages should be 50 percent higher across the board. Clearly, if wages in VC were 50 percent higher, housing would be more affordable. Housing prices and rents might go up, but not by 50 percent, as the number of buyers and renters would remain much the same. Farmworkers’ wages are especially miserable. These could be higher if crop prices were higher. Crop prices could be higher if tariffs were placed on imports of cheap food. Given the choice, low food prices or high wages, America chooses low prices and sheds crocodile tears over the resulting homelessness. Everyone refuses to see that the problem is caused at the national level by Reaganomics. Just for fun, ask Rep. Steve Knight, R-Palmdale, what he will do to raise wages in Ventura ♦ County. Try not to laugh.

Power to Speak

The season of nonviolence and migrant workers by Clive Leeman

D

uring the annual Season of Nonviolence (from Jan. 30 to April 4 to June 5)we remember three extraordinary leaders who inspired millions of people worldwideby embracing nonviolent change and transcending conventionalpolitical constraints. They were subsequently assassinated. Mahatma Gandhi died on Jan. 30, 1948; Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on April 4, 1968; and Robert F. Kennedy on June 5, 1968. I grew up in apartheid South Africa where black South Africans were regularly thrown in jail for being undocumented (not having their migrant labor pass books), and millions of families were ripped apart by the apartheid migrant labor system. What is happening today to migrants in the U.S. is frighteningly similar. Gandhi, King and Robert Kennedy all advanced the cause of nonviolent change in apartheid South Africa. Gandhi lived for 20 years in Durban, my hometown, a harbor city on the east coast of South Africa. He developed, refined and put into practice the political philosophy of nonviolent resistance (what he called “satyagraha,” truth power in Sanskrit), against the racially discriminating laws of the country. Gandhi’s satyagraha finally

freed India from Britain’s imperial control. In 1912, Gandhi was present during the founding of the African National Congress (ANC), and his nonviolent philosophy became the ANC’s strategy of opposition to apartheid. Even though, toward the end of the struggle, the ANC did resort to a dual policy of armed resistance and economic sanctions, the peaceful international boycott of South Africa brought about the ultimate victory over apartheid. Four years after South Africa’s President F.W. de Klerk released ANC leader Nelson Mandela from prison, Mandela and the ANC came to power on April 27, 1994, in the first democratic election in South African history. And 20 years after he released Mandela, de Klerk said, “The boycott kept us on our toes ... . If we had not changed in the manner we did, South Africa would be completely isolated ... . Our economy would be nonexistent ... .” (The Guardian, January 30, 2010.) In 1965, the National Union of South African Students (NUSAS), of which I am a former vice-president, was circulating among the antiapartheid community a speech by Martin Luther King Jr., which was banned by the apartheid government. It was called “Sleeping Through a Revolution” and was basedon the story of Rip Van Winkle. When he fell asleep, the sign on the inn showed a picture of King George III, and when he woke up 20 years later, the sign showed

George Washington. So he had slept through a revolution. In his speech, King said, “We are challenged to rid our nation and the world of poverty. Like a monstrous octopus, poverty spreads its nagging prehensile tentacles into hamlet sand villages all over the world.” Never before had I heard a speech of such metaphorical weight and political and philosophical depth. Never before had I understood so profoundly the revolutionary force of nonviolent resistance. The speech has stayed with me from that moment to this day. At the end of 1965, Ian Robertson, the president of NUSAS,invited Sen. Robert F. Kennedy to South Africa. Kennedy was seen as a future U.S. president and too famous to be refused entry by the apartheid government, so in its frustration, the government banned Ian Robertson instead. Kennedy swept the country, emphasizing the need for peaceful democratic change. In his final “Ripples of Hope” speech at the University of Cape Town on June 6, 1966, Kennedy thanked Ian Robertson, “who cannot be with us today,” indicating an empty chair behind him that signified Robertson’s enforced absence. In Kennedy’s words, “It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped each time a man stands up for an ideal or acts to improve the lot of others or strikes out against injustice. He sends forth a tiny

ripple of hope and, crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest wall of oppression and resistance.” After Kennedy had visited another banned leader, Chief Albert Lutuli, head of the banned ANC, he committed many acts of civil disobedience by quoting the chief everywhere he went. Gandhi defined poverty as “the worst kind of violence.” King was supporting striking garbage workers in Memphis, Tennessee, as part of his Poor People’s Campaign, when he was assassinated. And Kennedy had identified himself strongly with King and Césár Chavez, the nonviolent leader of the United Farm Workers, when he died. Apartheid inflicted poverty on millions of South Africans. It is poverty that drives most migrants to the U.S. It is their experience of poverty that makes them the most hardworking group of laborers in this country. Mahatma Gandhi, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy would all be resisting today the cruel and brutal treatment of migrant workers by the Trump administration. ♦ Clive Leeman lives in Ojai and writes about human rights issues.

The truth is out there? Ojai author Robert Salas to discuss UFOs and nuclear technology in Port Hueneme by Chris O’Neal chris@vcreporter.com

O

n March 24, 1967, Robert Salas experienced an event that would shape 25 years of his life. As a missile launch officer, Salas, stationed in an underground bunker near Roy, Montana, was alerted to an object hovering near the front gate of a base equipped with 10 nuclear-armed intercontinental ballistic missiles. What happened next will be the subject of his talk on Saturday, June 16, in Port Hueneme dubbed “UFOs & Nukes.” Salas, an Ojai resident, is the author of two books (Faded Giants and Unidentified: The UFO Phenomenon), a former aircraft engineer and has worked on missile propulsion technology. Salas ROBERT SALAS has been a frequent guest of Coast to Coast AM, a nationally broadcast program on topics ranging from the paranormal to the conspiratorial.

VCReporter: Tell me about the experience that led you to writing these books Robert Salas: I was on duty, two of us in this capsule underground about 60 feet. We were attached to Malmstrom Air Force Base about 100 miles to the west of us where we were. We had about six guards upstairs used for responding to any kind of potential incursion into the facility. Sometime in the middle of the night, I got a call from one of my guards upstairs telling me that they had been seeing some strange lights in the sky flying very fast, stopping on a dime, reversing course and making 90-degree turns without making any sound. I said, “Like UFOs?” because we had had reports in the area written up by local newspapers that people had seen lights in the sky. I wasn’t a great believer at the time; I was just kind of surprised by the call. Five minutes later he called back. He said, there’s a reddish orange, oval shaped object hovering right above the front gate. I went over to talk to my commander and I was about to tell him about the phone call when we got missiles going ‘no-go.’ They were disabled, all reading guidance control system failure. Within seconds we lost all 10 missiles while this glowing red pulsating object was just over head. We were relieved the next day and went back to the base. They had a guy from the Air Force Office of Special Investigation, the FBI of the Air Force, who shoved a piece of paper in our faces saying we’re never to speak about this ever again

6—

under penalty of a lot of jail time and fines. In 1994 I was in a book store, picked up a book called Above Top Secret, and happened to turn to page 301. A short paragraph there stated, missiles had been shut down by UFOs were reported. I contacted a mutual UFO network investigator, James Klotz, co-author on the first book I wrote, and asked him to send a Freedom of Information Act request to the Air Force but not to say anything about UFOs. They wrote back saying it was classified but said they were going to declassify the incident and send documents. That’s when I thought I’d go public.

What did the Air Force say was the cause? One of the documents is from Strategic Air Command headquarters to the base and to other bases stating the fact that echo flight went down for no apparent reason and that this is of grave concern to their command. The Air Force did their own classified investigation but in the interim, Air Force was sending reports back to SAC headquarters; in one it states the improbability of this event happening. What this object had to have done was to send a signal through 60 feet of earth and concrete, penetrate the cabling systems separately, and send a particular signal to shut down a particular piece of hardware within seconds. We didn’t have anything that could do that and we still don’t.

What do you mean by UFO? An object that has not been identified as an aircraft, per se, as we know them. We’re talking about the ability to perform g-forces in the hundreds because the acceleration, making 90-degree turns, no engine noise — at least we in the public don’t know what kind of propulsion system they can operate with, there is no exhaust. That’s what I mean by UFO. I’m telling you there are no aircraft that can do what I describe these things being capable of doing. My conclusion is that they are not from Planet Earth, they’re from elsewhere.

Are we in danger? No, I don’t think so. In my case, the missiles were not damaged. There have been many other cases where UFOs have flown over nuclear weapons, nuclear storage facilities and nuclear energy facilities. I think all they’re doing is sending a message, and that message is that you guys ought to get rid of the nuclear weapons or you’ll destroy yourselves. ✦ The Port Hueneme Historical Society Museum Distinguished Speakers Series presents author Robert Salas on Saturday, June 16, at 11 a.m. at 220 Market St., Port Hueneme.

In Brief TOW TRUCK DRIVER FOUND GUILTY IN DEATH OF TEEN

Hermin Martin Henderson, 52, of Ventura, has been found guilty of fleeing the scene of an accident where a 14-year-old bicyclist was killed in 2016. Henderson was also found guilty of concealing evidence. Henderson was charged with felony hit-and-run for the collision that led to the death of Jonathan Hernandez, 14, on Feb. 18, 2016. Henderson had also been charged with misdemeanor concealing evidence for allegedly replacing the front license plate of his truck with the back. Henderson pleaded not guilty to the charges. Hernandez had been attempting to cross against a red light on Telegraph Road from Saticoy Road around midnight in February when Henderson, who was driving his tow truck at the time, struck and killed him. Henderson washed the underside of his truck following the crash and surveillance video taken from an orchard near to the scene of the incident showed that Henderson braked after hitting Hernandez. Henderson, owner of Double R Towing, is also being sued in civil court by the Hernandez family. Henderson faces a maximum of four years in prison, should the felony conviction stand, and will be sentenced on July 20.

PUBLIC FORUMS TO BE HELD ON SOCALGAS

The California Public Utilities Commission will host several public forums in Ventura County, giving customers of the Southern California Gas Company, also known as SoCalGas, an opportunity to give input and share their perspective on a proposed rate increase beginning in 2019. SoCalGas has requested a rate increase to a total of $2.99 billion in 2019, a 19 percent increase over 2018, and an additional 8.54 percent increase in 2020, 6.19 percent increase in 2021 and 6.18 percent increase in 2022. A typical customer, says the company, would see a $7.54 increase to the bill in 2019. No official decision will be made at the forum. The forum will be held on Thursday, June 14, with information sessions beginning at 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. followed by public forums at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. at the Oxnard Performing Arts and Convention Center Ventura Room, 800 Hobson Way, Oxnard. For more information, visit www.cpuc.ca.gov/PPH.

COUNTY SHOULD PREPARE FOR EXTENDED DROUGHT

When the rest of California pulled out of a years-long drought in 2016, the only remaining county deep in the severe category was none other than Ventura County. Now, officials say that the drought in Ventura County has dramatically worsened and that residents should be prepared for the long haul. Despite a big storm that rolled through the county earlier this year, which triggered the mudslide in Montecito that killed 21, the county has remained in severe drought for at least five months straight, during the period typically known as the rainy season. Ventura County Fire Capt. Kenneth VanWig wrote in an update regarding fire conditions that the brush that has shifted from green to yellow as it hugs the hillsides is “becoming more and more receptive to burning every day.” Residents are urged to conserve water, though conservation has become compulsory with the signing into law two bills aimed at curbing water usage per person per day to 55 gallons, decreasing to 50 by 2030.

REPLICA VIETNAM WAR MEMORIAL MAKES STOP IN VENTURA The Vietnam Veterans of Ventura County will be hosting a half-scale mobile replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial from June 21 through June 25 at the Ventura County Government Center, replete with an honors ceremony remembering those whose names appear on the monument. The “Original Moving Wall” has inscribed upon it over 100 names of veterans from Ventura County. The wall will be located at 800 S. Victoria Ave. in Ventura and viewable 24 hours a day. Volunteers will assist visitors in finding names on the wall. For more information, visit www. lzventura.org.

Senior citizens made up the largest portion of payday loan borrowers among all age groups. “For too long, consumers who are desperate for help have fallen prey to high-risk lending practices that hide a path of incessant debt behind upfront, easy cash,” said Limón. “Healthy credit markets are based on the principle of a borrower’s ability to repay, and both AB-2953 and AB-3010 support this principle by implementing responsible and fair lending practices.” In celebration of California Nonprofits Day, Limón selected Boys & Girls Club of Greater Ventura as her 2018 California Nonprofit of the Year. “The Boys & Girls Club of Greater Ventura offered free child care and activities during a community emergency,” said Limón. “They helped hundreds of families affected by the Thomas Fire find needed child care when schools were closed, which alleviated a major financial burden for families.”

More than 20 years after widespread AIDS deaths, county HIV infection rates climb BY KATHY JEAN SHULTZ

E

nvisioning the end of HIV/AIDS may have been a premature dream. Public health experts are seeing an ominous rise in HIV infection rates. For people who remember the tragic epidemic of the 1990s, with its millions of unexplained deaths, and who now see infection rates climbing, there’s just one question: How could this happen? “There have been no facilities, no centers where we could go for treatment or counseling and feel safe,” Neil Coffman-Grey, Public Policy Coordinator for the HIV Coalition of Ventura County, told the VCReporter. LGBTQ people have not felt safe going to go to a regular clinic and talking about their sexual activity with staff who they feel — or have heard from others — may discriminate against them. There has not been funding for LGBTQ clinics for many years in the county. “AIDS cases are absolutely on the increase in the county,” Coffman-Grey, said. He has publicly disclosed his own status as having AIDS, and is in treatment using anti-retroviral pills. Coffman-Grey agrees that there is a combination of factors at work, including that clinics where MSM can feel safe have been few. Human Immunodeficiency Virus infection, or HIV, can lead to Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, or AIDS. HIV is sexually transmitted. HIV and AIDS can also be acquired by needle-sharing, which is injecting drugs with contaminated needles that have already been used by HIV or AIDS patients. The number of new Ventura County HIV cases in 2016 was more than 40, and in 2017 doubled to more than 80. Dr. Jake Donaldson, who practices HIV/AIDS medicine and family medicine at Santa Paula West and Pride Clinic, sees the uptick as a complex issue, not driven by any one clear reason. “We don’t have good answers for that yet,” he told the Ventura County Reporter about the increase. Rising rates might in part be reflective of wider testing within the population. “We don’t know the exact reason. But in talking to organizations and doctors, we know more people are getting tested, and more doctors are testing patients,” Christopher Ornelas, Ventura County Public Health (VCPH) Director of HIV/AIDS Programs and Public Health Clinics Manager, told the Reporter. HIV can have no symptoms for years, and when someone is newly infected, they may mistake it for the flu, Ornelas explained. “It could be years before they get tested,

Some observers point to budget cuts at every level — federal, state and local — that curtailed LGBTQ clinics over the years, or to online dating and “hookup” websites that make casual sex so easy. Others say that stigma keeps people “in the closet.” Experts agree that there’s not one reason; a combination of different factors is driving the increase.

so we are not seeing only the recently infected,” he said. “And we don’t know. Maybe we are just seeing the peak of it. Maybe these infections are the result of sexual contact or infected needle use that happened three or four years ago.” “Better data collection means we now know how many people may be infected, whereas older methods of tracking infected people may have resulted in lower numbers,” Michael MacDonald, activist and Vice President of Diversity Collective Ventura County, told the Reporter. If infected people were not being tested, there was no way for them to be counted.

GENERATIONAL FORGETTING

Infection rates among county residents age 13-24 have climbed, MacDonald said, including within Latino neighborhoods. National data show a rise among young people too. National Institutes of Health researchers have observed what they label “generational forgetting.” Young people may be less likely to perceive the dangers of HIV infection than are older people, especially older populations within the LGBTQ community, who witnessed their friends die in the blistering AIDS epidemic of the 1990s. According to the U.S. National Institute on Drug Abuse, in 2015, people aged 13-24 comprised only 16 percent of the population, but 22 percent of new HIV diagnoses. Young gay and bisexual men accounted for 84 percent of all new diagnoses for ages 13-24. People too young to remember do not comprehend how deadly AIDS was. The “generational forgetting” theory aligns with county data.

INTENSITY OF STIGMA

“There is significant stigma attached to seeking help, and especially in seeking help from a government agency, which is what the county health department is,” MacDonald explained. And without private hospitals and doctors offering information, county facilities are the only option. “We are trying to work with regional hospitals to increase the number that will

offer testing,” he said. MacDonald notes that a number of new diagnoses are coming from private clinics such as Planned Parenthood and Clinicas del Camino Real, which is a bicultural and bilingual medical clinic that serves those with limited income and resources. “There is a huge population in Oxnard that we are not reaching,” MacDonald says. “There is a huge youth population, as borne out by the increase in numbers of people 35 and under.” Even when there is no threat of HIV specifically, youths tend not to be vigilant: “Teens are infamous for incorrect and inconsistent use of condoms,” Dr. ChrisAnna Mink, a Carson, California, pediatrician, recently wrote in an article addressing rising levels of sexually transmitted disease among teens.

FEW TESTING LOCATIONS

“Diversity Collective is responding, through our HIV/AIDS Education and Prevention program,” MacDonald said. “There was that spike, with 84 new cases, in Ventura County in January 2017. What it showed was two new trends. The largest population of infected people were age 35 and under. There was also an increase in ages 55 and older.” Pinpointing a reason for an increase in ages 55 and older is not easily accomplished by any one factor, but MacDonald notes that over the years, there have been few resources for getting HIV-tested. “There was only the Ventura County Health Care Agency and us — Diversity Collective — working on this. The recent data was welcomed by Diversity Collective, as it pointed to more people being tested,” he said. Expansion possibilities might include HIV testing during routine blood tests done at hospitals and emergency rooms. Patients can currently opt out of this if they do not want it included in their medical tests, but if it became routine, the number of county cases might more accurately reflect infection rates. When people coming to an emergency room for blood work agree to be tested for HIV as well as their other concerns,

countywide data could become more accurate. “We need to be pushing education and information,” MacDonald said. “We’d like to see HIV testing included by doctors’ offices as a part of normal blood work, because we know that is not taking place now.”

ONLINE DATING AND HOOKUP WEBSITES

County rates of infection are similar to rates that are climbing nationwide. Many experts have pointed to hookup sites used primarily by men seeking men — or MSM — for sex, as the reason. MacDonald does not agree that hookup sites are a prime reason. “There are organizations that want to point to online hookup sites. I don’t see it that way,” he said. “These sites, such as Grindr, have been around for 10 years. So use of these sites does not completely explain the increase.” According to the Centers for Disease Control, 15 percent of infected gay men do not know that they are infected, which contributes to risk if they use hookup sites for unprotected sex. This is what happened in the 1980s. No one knew they were infected, so they did not use condom protection, thus spreading infection with great speed. On March 26, MSM hookup site Grindr.com, which claims 3.3 million daily users worldwide, for the first time and following public criticism, started displaying reminders about frequent HIV testing on the site, along with directions to nearby testing locations. The world’s largest provider of gay dating phone apps, Grindr.com’s announcement also stated thatthe site will allow clinics, gay community centers and other testing sites to advertise for free. This decision was made to “reduce H.I.V. transmission and support our whole community — regardless of H.I.V. status — in living long and fulfilling lives,” Jack Harrison-Quintana, Grindr’s director for equality, told The New York Times. Several

experts cited in the Times article greeted the news positively. Is there evidence that HIV infection increases within the MSM community because of hookup sites? Dr. Jonathan Mermin, chief of AIDS and Sexually Transmitted Diseases at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said that CDC data show many men who use hookup websites to find other men nearby seeking sex are at high risk of getting infected. Phone apps can ease accessibility to both responsible, or risky, behaviors. “Men who have sex with men, or MSM, no longer have to go to bars to meet,” Ornelas pointed out. For MSM who are not comfortable approaching other MSM, there is the ability to hide behind an app, and contact someone anonymously. “This is true, for example, if you’ve never dated men, or have only been in heterosexual relationships; here’s an easy way to connect with men seeking men. “Some LGBTQ advocates do not like making sites like Grindr the villain,” Ornelas notes. He said responsibility should ultimately fall on the visitor to the site or app. “A lot of people are against vilifying these apps. Interestingly, sexually transmitted diseases, or STDs, including chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis, are rising, and few observers are vilifying sites like match.com or eHarmony.com the way Grindr has been.”

NO SAFE PLACE TO GO FOR HELP

Diversity Collective this year opened a community center to serve LGBT patients who have had no other place to go. VCPH facilities offer free HIV testing Monday through Friday. “We always knew the numbers were bigger than what we know. In the past, the estimate was that 2,000 people in the county had HIV,” MacDonald said. “But the Ventura County Health Care Agency was offering testing and treatment, and only seeing 400 people. So you had to ask, where are all the others?”

INADEQUATE PREVENTION

Another contributing factor may have been inadequate

health-care-provider collaboration toward prevention. For example, pre-exposure prophylaxis pills, called PrEP pills, provide a way for people who are HIV-negative and sexually active to prevent HIV infection by taking a pill every day. “These are pills people can take before having sex, which are somewhat like birth-control pills, and there are also morning-after pills, although the morning-after pills do have serious side effects,” MacDonald said. “But we have observed that about 30 percent of county providers are not familiar with PrEP pills. So when people see a local doctor, for example, for an annual checkup, their doctors may not inform them about PrEP pills, as some doctors do not know about them. A number of local hospitals are not informing patients about PrEP pills either, so people are not receiving information.”

DEPORTATION QUALMS

Undocumented people do not tend to seek out health care, and if they become infected due to any of the other factors, they may not get tested, and can therefore spread infection. “One factor is that within the current political climate, undocumented people are afraid to seek health care — in this county in particular, it’s really important,” Donaldson said. “Current immigration policies really harm public health.” PHOTO BY T CHRISTIAN GAPEN

12,200 (70%) among gay and bisexual men

MOVING FORWARD

VCPH’s HIV/AIDS Center operates a needle-exchange program, also called a syringe replacement program, which can significantly decrease the spread of infection. “Research solidly backs that up,” Donaldson said. “Research shows rates of transmission of blood-borne infections, including HIV and hepatitis, decrease with needle-exchange programs. Needle exchanges bring significant harm reduction to communities,” he said. “In terms of promoting and maintaining general public health, harm reduction is always a good thing.” The county Syringe Replacement Program allows drug users to trade in their used syringes for new ones. This is a countywide effort to slow or stop the spread of HIV caused by infected needles. Returning used needles to county facilities keeps them, off the street, out of lawns and out of trash bins, thereby keeping nonusers out of harm’s way. “I think we have also reduced related emergency room and hospital visits for our participants,” Ornelas said.

King of Modern Magic Local magician Beau Matthews coming to Thousand Oaks by Carl Kozlowski

etention hall is usually one of the worst places to be stuck during high school. But for lifelong Ventura resident Beau Matthews, one of his many afternoons in D-hall set him on the course he has devoted his life to achieving: becoming a star magician. Matthews, 27, has built a fast-growing reputation as an ace trickster on the private celebrity party circuit throughout Southern California. Having headlined events for the likes of rappers YG and Kyle as well as veteran comedian/actor Jamie Kennedy, Matthews will be taking a bold step toward broader stardom on Friday when he presents an elaborate solo show at the Scherr Forum Theater inside the Thousand Oaks Performing Arts Center. “It all started when I met Kyle the rapper in detention in high school, where I was put for messing with a deck of cards during class,” says Matthews. “My teacher took the deck away and locked them up, so I picked the lock when she wasn’t looking and got them back, and that’s how I got detention. My mom didn’t even care; she just wanted to know how I did it.” Matthews started performing after receiving a magic kit as a gift for his seventh birthday, and his grandparents

furthered his obsession by buying him magic books by Bill Tarr, which taught him card tricks. Soon he was wowing his classmates at school, which helped him overcome his early strong shyness. “I’m a big fan of magic and mystery, and loved learning about famous magicians and tried to figure out why I liked Houdini so much,” recalls Matthews. “Another magician named Max Malini did close-up magic for celebrities, like taking out a hat and showing it empty before putting it on a table and lifting it up to reveal a block of ice. He would also just walk up and bite the button off the jacket of a mayor in a town while on tour and then restore it to the jacket, all without even introducing himself.” Matthews’ website is filled with videos of him entertaining people on the streets of Ventura and Hollywood with tricks such as picking up a crushed beer can and making it appear to be full and sealed again before pouring out a new round of beer from inside it. Recently, he successfully jumped off the Ventura Pier — before a crowd, with no lifeguard or safety backup in place — while handcuffed and encased within 100 feet of rope. The stratagem was to set himself free from the cuffs within three minutes or less in the same way that legendary magician Harry Houdini did decades ago. A confirmation call on the following Monday revealed him happy to be alive and well after the experience. That trick, and a penchant for oddly

tinted eyeballs to brand himself the “evil magician,” are an effort to stand out from social media clutter. He notes that when it comes to succeeding at magic, practice is essential to perfection. “I find the biggest steroid-using, most intimidating individuals to tie me up,” says Matthews. “I practice everywhere, even if I’m at the gym I’ll practice on them. I also love going out on the street in places like Hollywood and filming myself practicing on strangers.” “The whole point is to get attention because there’s so much noise out in social media and you gotta be different somehow, or it won’t matter if you’re the best in the world,” he continues. “I don’t believe in evil or the Illuminati but I know some people believe in it and that gets attention, so it’s cool. I wear a chain with a symbol of the pyramid. The bottom is the biggest section and there’s a peak, which represents that 80 percent of magicians are bad, and 20 percent are good. The more knowledge and skill you have, the better you are; and that applies to business, magic, getting women. It’s ✦ all the same.” Beau Matthews: King of Modern Magic performs on Friday, June 15, at 7 p.m. at the Thousand Oaks Performing Arts Center, 2100 Thousand Oaks Blvd. For tickets and more information, call 805-449-2787 or visit www.civicartsplaza.com.

Two Ventura galleries have left their long-held locations for new digs this summer. Vita Art Center, which opened in 2007 at the Bell Arts Factory at 432 N. Ventura Avenue, has relocated to 28 W. Main Street, just a block away from the WAV in one direction and the Museum of Ventura County in the other. The new location has allowed Executive Director Mary Perez to expand the gallery’s offerings to include a ceramics studio and artists’ studios as well as an art education space and gallery. Vita celebrated its grand opening on May 31 with a reception for an exhibit featuring work by John Nava. Those Bell Arts rooms weren’t empty for long: The Buenaventura Art Association moved in after selling its building across from Plaza Park at Fir and Main. Its new home will have space for both solo and group shows, an artisan store and more community workshops, talks and demos. The new Buenaventura Gallery expects to be open sometime in August. Squashed Grapes closed its doors at 2351 E. Main St. at the end of April to relocate to a larger spot at 2733 E. Main St. The Midtown Ventura jazz and wine venue is closed during moving and remodeling, but owners Adam Randall and Josh McNutt expect to reopen “The Grape” this summer. Focus on the Masters is on the hunt for a new home. After several years on the fourth floor, and later the third floor, of the Nonprofit Sustainability Center, the art archive and library is now looking for a new location to house its extensive holdings and allow Donna Granata and company to continue their artist documentation activities. Ideally, the new space would be available for purchase and offer 3,000 square feet or more for gatherings, exhibitions and community outreach.

Thousand Oaks Pop-Up Arts and Music Festival kicks off this weekend by Emily Dodi

Cuban jazz band Amistad Cubana makes a special appearance at the Ventura Harbor this weekend.

¡Hola Cuba!

Amistad Cubana returns to Ventura’s Copa Cubana

by Tim Pompey

I

t’s a rare opportunity to have a renowned Cuban musical family bring their talent and sound to a small stage at the Ventura Harbor. But the reality of it sets in at Copa Cubana as the (real) Cuban jazz band Amistad Cubana explodes with its first chord. Amistad Cubana bills itself as “a highintensity Cuban dance music group.” That, as it turns out, is only part of the story. The core of the band is in fact the Arango family: the group’s composer and arranger, Feliciano, on bass; Ignacio on guitar; Eugenio on drums and sister Cristina Arango Noa on lead vocals. Julio Valdes from Panama plays keyboard and Robert Felcher, the band’s informal manager from San Diego, is on congas. While the family comes from Guanabacoa, in eastern Havana, the band on stage this weekend is a matter of accident and timing. Felcher recalled how he was surprised to learn there even was an Arango family: “I met Ignacio, the oldest brother, and we started playing together, and we’d been playing together for 20 years. And then he said to me one day, ‘Oh, my family are musicians and they’re coming over to visit.’ I never knew he had this family.” When you think of Cuban music, the sounds of piano and rhythmic congas come to mind. But the sound that makes

up Cuban jazz is much more diverse. For the novice listener like me, I had to learn about the evolution of Cuban music, and that meant knowing the difference between son and timba. Surprisingly, it meant I also had to expand my knowledge of American music. “Music evolves,” said Felcher. “So if you go back to the ’40s and ’50s, son was the current dance music of Cuba. That evolved over the years and more modern styles have taken over. Timba is an evolved form of son, and it has a little more funky element to it.” That evolution, as it turns out, came from 1980s American music. As keyboardist Julio Valdes described it, its influences were rooted in American funk. “Timba is more Americanized,” he stated. “If you talk to the pioneers of timba, one of them is Feliciano, the bass player. They essentially grew up listening to Earth, Wind and Fire and Tower of Power. If you listen to timba, as I’ve heard it described by other timba players, imagine that Tower of Power musicians went to Cuba and took special crash courses in Cuban music, and then returned and continued to play their music.” That’s part of the influence. But the musicians in Amistad have also been wellschooled in American and Cuban jazz. In fact, they have been collecting and listening to it all of their lives. “When I listen to these guys, who are pure Cuban musicians,” said Valdes, “they tell me, ‘Oh, I used to be at home, and our

friend would come over with a new cassette,’ and they would really enjoy things being generated by the U.S.” Turns out that jazz, rock and R&B have been crossing the waters between Cuba and the U.S. for decades, and like many kids growing up with a love for music, the Arango family’s passion was to hear what was new, especially from America. Now all the Arangos have distinguished music careers. Feliciano has worked with Emiliano Salvador, Chucho Valdés, David Murray and Maraca. Eugenio is a conservatory professor of Cuban percussion and for over 20 years has served as percussionist for prestigious singer Pablo Milanés. Ignacio played for over 10 years in the Tropicana Club in Cuba with Giraldo Piloto and Paquito de Rivera. Cristina has sung with various Cuban groups. The good news is, Amistad Cubana is returning to Copa Cubana for two more performances on Friday, June 15, and Saturday, June 16. If you enjoy authentic and original Cuban jazz, you should make plans to come listen. The best part: There’s no cover charge. Just order dinner, eat and enjoy. ✦ Amistad Cubana plays on Friday, June 15, 7-10 p.m., and Saturday, June 16, 5-8 p.m., at Copa Cubana, 1575 Spinnaker Drive in Ventura Harbor Village. Reservations are recommended. For more information, call 805-642-9463 or visit www.thecopacubana. com.

The Honeysuckle Possums perform on Friday, June 22, at 7 p.m. on the Stagecoach Museum Lawn.

T

housand Oaks is turning the traditional summer concert series up a notch. The Pop-Up Arts and Music Festival, hosted by the city of Thousand Oaks and the Thousand Oaks Alliance for the Arts, consists of eight events over the course of three weekends in June. Ranging from live music and storytelling to group singalongs and an art show, the events are free and open to all. Barry McComb, Cultural Affairs Director of the city of Thousand Oaks, says the festival “provides an opportunity for residents to come together in shared cultural experiences.” “We tried to have events all around the city so people can walk to them. They can bring a picnic and enjoy,” says Colleen Debler, director of marketing in the city’s Department of Cultural Affairs. The festival kicks off with a family movie night featuring Disney’s Moana and a Polynesian dance performance on June 16 at Dos Vientos Community Park. On June 22, John Zipperer and the Current Band and the Honeysuckle Possums perform on the Stagecoach Museum Lawn. “I’ve been dying to do a show with the Honeysuckle Possums,” Zipperer says. “We’re a good complement to each other.” Zipperer describes his music as a mix of 1980s rock and folk, and he loves performing. “My favorite thing in life is when the audience sings back. You can’t beat it.” “Our goal is to leave the audience feeling better than when they came,” explains Susan Marie Reeves, one of the lead singers of the Honeysuckle Possums. The all-woman band plays bluegrass and old-time mountain music as well as original songs. Other events include storytelling by Michael Katz and Antonio Sacre at Oakbrook Park on June 17, and a visual arts pop-up at the Oaks Mall on June 23. Joe Gray and the Late Nite Big Band featuring Bonnie Bowden and the Mariachi Divas will perfom at CLU’s William Roland Stadium on June 24. Members of the New West Symphony will play a classical concert at Triunfo Community Park on June 29. The festival ends on June 30 with a group sing with Choir! Choir! Choir! at Civic Arts Plaza Park. The festival takes place over 14 days this year, but organizers have high hopes for the future. “Within the next few years our goal is for the festival to grow to 30 cultural events over 30 days,” says McComb. Sounds like a plan. ✦ The Thousand Oaks Pop-Up Arts and Music Festival takes place June 16-30. For full schedule and more information, visit www.toaks.org/departments/cultural-affairs.

KEEPING THE ISSUE ‘IN FRONT OF PEOPLE’S FACES’

“There hasn’t been anyone to keep the problem in front of people’s faces,” Coffman-Gray said. “Publicity about PrEP is an example. If you don’t know about it, you are not going to use it. “The rising rates are almost all MSM, or women who have sex with MSM,” he said. “Surprisingly, about 27 percent were over age 50. About 49 percent were Caucasian and 48 percent were Latino. “I believe drugs are involved because they lower inhibitions,” Coffman-Grey noted. But he agrees that many people are still hiding “in the closet” because stigma is so powerful. He sees evidence that many in the Latino community do not want to ask questions about treatment because they do not want to be perceived as being gay. Hookup sites are “certainly exacerbating,” Coffman-Grey said, but an equally compelling factor is lack of community centers, because that’s been a problem since before 2012. “There has not been a community resource center for years,” Coffman-Grey said. “There were so many people with no place to go. “People were so scared in the 1990s,” Coffman-Grey recalled. “It was a time of such intensity and hatred. People with AIDS or HIV could find no place to rent or live. No matter how much money we had to offer, landlords would not rent to AIDS patients. Dying patients were rejected by their families. Imagine, to be dying in droves, rejected by their families and having no place to live. People were literally kicked to the curb. I was involved then, and we could not find anyplace to house people.” “We just have to keep on it,” Coffman-Grey said. “We have to keep educating people, and keep raising awareness. People are still dying of this disease. We need to let people know you can still die of this.” Donaldson notes: “My main message is, get informed, be safe and get tested.” ✦

exchange program results in a decrease in infections and abscesses, once participants are using clean needles and safer injection supplies. “Program participants come from a variety of situations and different socioeconomic levels: we have some who live with their families and hold down regular jobs, some who are homeless, and the rest fall somewhere in the middle,” Ornelas said. The main thing is to insure that participants have a clean syringe for every injection. That is the goal. “We are trying to stop the spread of infection and increase harm reduction,” Ornelas said. “We explain to participants that if we give them 30 needles, for example, to last a week, we hope to see 30 used needles returned the following week, but this does not always happen. “We give participants sharps containers to safely store used needles until they can be returned to us,” Ornelas explained. This is done so that there is little excuse for not returning them. Different sizes of containers are offered, which cannot be legally deemed to be drug paraphernalia. To prevent stray, used needles from being found and picked up on the street, the program does aim to get all needles that are given out to be returned. “Along with a list of our other SRPs and the days they operate, we give participants a list of other places where they can return the needles,” Ornelas said. “Clinics and facilities located throughout the county that also accept used syringes might be located closer to where participants live and are open on days their closest SRP is closed.” “In 2016 we gave out 40,192 syringes. We took in 41,064 syringes,” Ornelas said. Also in 2016, the program resulted in 2,753 encounters with participants, including visits by both repeating and one-time participants. In 2017 103,914 syringes were given out and 83,560 syringes were taken in. Total 2017 encounters were 3,287, which was an increase of 534 encounters over 2016. “Letting the public know what we do offer is key,” Ornelas says. “And getting the message out.” (Ventura County has about 850,600 residents total.) The program also distributes Overdose Rescue Kits, known as NARCAN Kits, to those who use opiates such as heroin. Kits and training to administer them are also available to those who live with opiate users. They are commonly called “NO OD” kits. “In 2016, we distributed 125 kits, and we had 35 total overdoses prevented with these kits,” Ornelas said. “In 2017, we gave out 327 NARCAN kits, and had 88 overdoses prevented, as reported to us,” he said. VCPH operates SRPs once a week in Simi Valley, Oxnard, Ventura and Santa Paula. An SRP test run is being performed at the Health Care for the Homeless’ One Stop program at the River Haven transitional living program. While there aren’t many inhabitants in the River Haven huts, there are an estimated 100 or more living in the river bottom right behind it. Used syringes have been found there frequently, Ornelas said.

cut), reveals the nuts and bolts of the heist and assembles the players needed. First, down-onher-luck designer Rose Weil (Helena Bonham Carter) is recruited to dress and accessorize haughty actress Daphne Kluger (Anne Hathaway) for the gathering of the bejeweled and the bedazzling, the nexus of all that is tres chic, the Met Gala in New York. The major accessory, of course, being the Toussaint. The rest of the crew includes pick-pocket Constance (rapper-comedian Awkwafina); skilled jeweler Amita (Mindy Kaling); a polished homemaker and fence, Tammy (Sarah Paulson); and computer hacker Nine Ball (Rihanna, stunning through fatigues, dreadlocks and crocheted snood). She’s a surprise find for Debbie and Lou. “All these hackers are Russians,” says Debbie. “Or is it all Russians are hackers?” asks Lou. The plan is executed to the 1960s-influenced groove of Daniel Pemberton’s soundtrack. There’s musical homage to the Sinatra family, and even Sammy’s voice wafts out of a speaker at one point. Visually, the art treasures and New York City are a feast to behold. There are surprises and big-time cameos from actresses you’d never expect. Some plot twists come out of the blue, but not to worry — Ocean’s 8 is an engine with no knocks. R i c h a r d Armitage plays slick, preening Claude Becker, Debbie’s art dealer/ex-boyfriend. Look for him to have an important presence. Ultimately, the law arrives in the corpulent form of James Corden as John Frazier, the insurance investigator. Corden puts his The Late Late Show wit to use trying to track down the Toussaint, easily mixing into the film’s flawless chemistry. That kind of cohesiveness, with a star-studded cast, is never easy. It’s what makes the movie, though briskly paced, so fluid and even. Everyone contributes to Ocean’s 8. Bullock’s charm, Blanchett’s hipness, Bonham Carter’s dotty aplomb, Paulson’s measured calm, Hathaway’s eyes speaking volumes when she has no lines, and the deft, comic gifts of Kaling and Awkwafina (real name Nora Lum) all blend cohesively. This is a fun heist film. No clues here. You won’t know if the crew gets away with it unless you see it. ♦

well as the vegetable fried rice ($8.95). Our musical entertainment for the evening began playing for one couple sitting in the middle of the room. It was late afternoon on a Sunday, the crowd was sparse, but our musical talent found a way to include one customer’s wife in the Frank Sinatra ballad “Nancy (With the Laughing Face).” This called for a few drinks. My partner ordered a scorpion, a classic Polynesian cocktail with which I am all too familiar that can be ordered for one ($8.95) or for two ($15). Four liquors are mixed with fruit and pineapple juice and it comes bright blue. I chose safely with a Tsingtao beer. Our dishes arrived promptly following delivery of our egg rolls. I’m reminded of the year 1997 when I crunch into my first roll, crisp on the outside and soft in the middle with cooked veggies, watching movies with my family over Chinese takeout. This is a taste that hasn’t changed and is comforting in its own way, served with sweet and sour sauce. The Kung Pao tofu and the spicy eggplant with tofu could have used a lot more adherence to its namesake in that the spiciness was rather nonexistent, which is a shame considering that everything was otherwise very well done. The eggplant, soft and not at all spongy, soaked up the flavorful sauce, while the tofu in both dishes was fried to golden crispness, pairing well with the broccoli, water chestnut and peanuts in the kung pao sauce. We opted for the fried rice in lieu of the white rice and were pleased to have done so. The rice was the star of the show, able to coincide with either main dish, soaking up the sauce before finding its way onto our spoons and into our hungry mouths. Our entertainment had spent the previous 10 minutes singing to Nancy with the laughing face. Her husband, perhaps a little intimidated by the mating call of the solo artist, wrapped his arm around her shoulders. A young couple at the bar watched on, giggling, and my partner finished her second scorpion as I swirled the remnants of my beer. Hong Kong Inn is the place to go to recapture a sense of uncaring whimsy. Oddly enough, nostalgia is ripe while seated at the familiar tables over a plate of crispy eggrolls and fried rice. You won’t find another place like it in Ventura. ♦

Date:_______________________________


FREE WILL ASTROLOGY ARIES

(March 21-April 19):

My Aries acquaintance Tatiana decided to eliminate sugar from her diet. She drew up a plan to avoid it completely for 30 days, hoping to permanently break its hold over her. I was surprised to learn that she began the project by making a Dessert Altar in her bedroom, where she placed a chocolate cake and five kinds of candy. She testified that it compelled her willpower to work even harder and become even stronger than if she had excluded all sweet treats from her sight. Do you think this strenuous trick might work for you as you battle your own personal equivalent of a sugar addiction? If not, devise an equally potent strategy. You’re on the verge of forever escaping a temptation that’s no good for you. Or you’re close to vanquishing an influence that has undermined you. Or both.

TAURUS

(April 20-May 20):

You have caressed and finessed The Problem. You have tickled and teased and tinkered with it. Now I suggest that you let it alone for a while. Give it breathing room. Allow it to evolve under the influence of the tweaks you have instigated. Although you may need to return and do further work in a few weeks, my guess is that The Problem’s knots are now destined to metamorphose into seeds. The awkwardness you massaged with your love and care will eventually yield a useful magic.

GEMINI

(May 21-June 20):

“Whether you love what you love or live in divided ceaseless revolt against it, what you love is your fate.” Gemini poet Frank Bidart wrote that in his poem “Guilty of Dust,” and now I offer it to you. Why? Because it’s an excellent time to be honest with yourself as you identify whom and what you love. It’s also a favorable phase to assess whether

by rob brezsny

you are in any sense at odds with whom and what you love; and if you find that you are, to figure out how to be in more harmonic alignment with whom and what you love. Finally, dear Gemini, now is a key moment to vividly register the fact that the story of your life in the coming years will pivot around your relationship with whom and what you love.

CANCER

(June 21-July 22):

Congratulations on the work you’ve done to cleanse the psychic toxins from your soul, Cancerian. I love how brave you’ve been as you’ve jettisoned outworn shticks, inadequate theories and irrelevant worries. It makes my heart sing to have seen you summon the self-respect necessary to stick up for your dreams in the face of so many confusing signals. I do feel a tinge of sadness that your heroism hasn’t been better-appreciated by those around you. Is there anything you can do to compensate? Like maybe intensify the appreciation you give yourself?

LEO

(July 23-Aug. 22):

I hope you’re reaching the final stages of your yearlong project to make yourself as solid and steady as possible. I trust that you have been building a stable foundation that will serve you well for at least the next five years. I pray that you have been creating a rich sense of community and establishing vital new traditions, and surrounding yourself with environments that bring out the best in you. If there’s any more work to be done in these sacred tasks, intensify your efforts in the coming weeks. If you’re behind schedule, please make up for lost time.

VIRGO

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22):

“Necessity is the mother of invention,” says an old proverb. In other words, when your need for some

correction or improvement becomes overwhelming, you may be driven to get creative. Engineer Allen Dale put a different spin on the issue. He said that “If necessity is the mother of invention, then laziness is the father.” Sci-fi writer Robert Heinlein agreed, asserting that “Progress is made by lazy men looking for easier ways to do things.” I’m not sure if necessity or laziness will be your motivation, Virgo, but I suspect that the coming weeks could be a golden age of invention for you. What practical innovations might you launch? What useful improvements can you finagle? (P.S. Philosopher Alfred North Whitehead attributed the primary drive for innovative ideas and gizmos to “pleasurable intellectual curiosity.”)

LIBRA

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22):

Would you have turned out wiser and wealthier if you had dropped out of school in third grade? Would it have been better to apprentice yourself to a family of wolves or coyotes rather than trusting your educational fate to institutions whose job it was to acclimate you to society’s madness? I’m happy to let you know that you’re entering a phase when you’ll find it easier than usual to unlearn any old conditioning that might be suppressing your ability to fulfill your rich potentials. I urge you to seek out opportunities to unleash your skills and enhance your intelligence.

SCORPIO

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21):

The temptation to overdramatize is strong. Going through with a splashy but messy conclusion may have a perverse appeal. But why not wrap things up with an elegant whisper instead of a garish bang? Rather than impressing everyone with how amazingly complicated your crazy life is, why not quietly lay the foundations for a low-key resolution that will set the stage for a productive sequel? Taking the latter route will be much easier on your karma, and in

my opinion will make for just as interesting a story.

SAGITTARIUS

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21):

Each of us harbors rough, vulnerable, controversial or unhoned facets of our identity. And every one of us periodically reaches turning points when it becomes problematic to keep those qualities buried or immature. We need to make them more visible and develop their potential. I suspectthat you have arrived at such a turning point. So on behalf of the cosmos, I hereby invite you to enjoy a period of ripening and self-revelation. And I do mean “enjoy.” Find a way to have fun.

CAPRICORN

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19):

For the next two-plus weeks, an unusual rule will be in effect: The more you lose, the more you gain. That means you will have an aptitude for eliminating hassles, banishing stress and shedding defense mechanisms. You’ll be able to purge emotional congestion that has been preventing clarity. You’ll have good intuitions about how to separate yourself from influences that have made you weak or angry. I’m excited for you, Capricorn! A load of old, moldy karma could dissolve and disperse in what seems like a twinkling. If all goes well, you’ll be traveling much lighter by July 1.

AQUARIUS

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18):

I suggest you avoid starting a flirtatious correspondence with a convict who’ll be in jail for another 28 years. OK? And don’t snack on fugu, the Japanese delicacy that can poison you if the cook isn’t careful about preparing it. Please? And don’t participate in a séance where the medium summons the spirits of psychotic ancestors or diabolical celebrities with whom you imagine it might be interesting to converse. Got that? I understand that you might be in the

mood for high adventure and out-of-the-ordinary escapades. And that will be fine and healthy as long as you also exert a modicum of caution and discernment.

PISCES

(Feb. 19-March 20):

I suggest that you pat yourself on the back with both hands as you sing your own praises and admire your own willful beauty in three mirrors simultaneously. You have won stirring victories over not just your own personal version of the devil, but also over your own inertia and sadness. From what I can determine, you have corralled what remains of the forces of darkness into a comfy holding cell, sealing off those forces from your future. They won’t bother you for a very long time, maybe never again. Right now you would benefit from a sabbatical — a vacation from all this high-powered character-building. May I suggest you pay a restorative visit to the Land of Sweet Nonsense? Homework: Many of us try to motivate ourselves through abusive self-criticism. Do you? If so, maybe it’s time to change.

Probate NOTICE OF PETITION TO ADMINISTER ESTATE OF WILLIAM B. ERWIN, DECEDENT Case No: 56-2018-00510887PR-PW-VTA To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of: WILLIAM B. ERWIN. A Petition for Probate has been filed by: WILLIAM NARDONI in the Superior Court of California, County of VENTURA. The Petition for Probate requests that: WILLIAM NARDONI be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. The petition requests the decedent’s will and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A hearing on the petition will be held in this court as follows: 6-25-18 at 8:30 a.m. in Dept. 21. Address of court: Superior Court of

California, County of Ventura, 800 South Victoria Avenue, Ventura, CA 93009. If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law.
