Art, music therapy for VUSD

Local jobs: Up and down

C

reating new jobs is a tricky endeavor. Layoffs, however, appear to be rather simple. This week it was reported that over 250 jobs would be cut in the coming months in Ventura County: 155 at Oxnard Lemon Company, which was recently acquired by Limoneira though the company stated it would like to retain some of the employees after the acquisition; 57 at Orchard Supply Hardware stores, which is closing nationwide; and 56 at Brasseler, a medical instrument producer. Suffice it to say, job loss is never a good thing. Ventura County’s job market has had its own ebbs and flows for the last decade, just like any other metropolitan area. While the California Lutheran University Center for Economic Research and Forecasting (CERF) will update its annual forecast and current job market conditions on Nov. 8, for 2006 to 2016, the most recent market analysis shows industries in flux. For those 10 years, the most significant reductions reported in the CERF Ventura County 10-Year Employment by Occupation Forecast were in office and administrative support, a loss of 8,650 jobs; construction and extraction, a loss of 7,130 jobs; and production, with 3,710 jobs lost. Other industries with notable job losses were transportation and material moving (1,610 jobs); building and grounds cleaning and maintenance (1,160); architectural and engineering (980); and life, physical and social sciences (880). The forecast showed further deterioration in all of those industries over the next 10 years, and added farming, fishing and forestry, which had lost only 270 jobs over the last 10 years

While I applaud the “rebranding” efforts and intentions that VUSD Superintendent David Creswell expressed in his recent interview with the VC Reporter (“Talking about education,” News, Aug. 30), he mentions several topics that need further discussion. I’ll stick to one. He says that school safety is “a huge goal.” It is also the 11th word of the VUSD mission statement. So I ask, why doesn’t he hire more professional people in the realm of therapy for troubled students? Many progressive school districts nationwide have seen a vital need for having practicing music and art therapists on their staff, but there are none in VUSD, even though what these therapists offer would be a tremendous asset to struggling students, many of whom have already been flagged by school mental health staff. We hear about these “red flagged” students time and time again after school shootings. Working with school psychiatrists to pinpoint children who feel marginalized, art therapists offer other ways of reaching children who may not excel in academics or sports. For more than 25 years, I’ve seen this work! Art therapies help by building trust, boosting confidence, empowering self-esteem, calming minds, and offering new pathways into learning and social skills. As a certified music therapist MT-BC, I have offered time and time again to do a free demonstration of the power of music therapy at the school district. I’ll offer it again, here, in print. Please consider adding this enriching program that fosters student well-being and school safety to the many children who would benefit from it. 

but are predicted to lose over 1,100 jobs in the coming 10. It seems the prediction has merit, given the recent announcement. There is good news, however, in that the forecast predicted overall job growth of 6.1 percent in the next decade. Industries that have grown and are predicted to continue to grow include business and financial operations; community and social services; education, training and library services; health-care practitioners and technical; food preparation and serving; personal care and services; and installation, maintenance and repair, to name the areas with the most significant growth predictions. There is also some legislative help when it comes to job growth, such as Congresswoman Julia Brownley, D-Westlake Village, having secured $250,000 in federal funding via the U.S. Department of Agriculture for San Miguel Produce, based in Oxnard, “to help create jobs in Ventura County and support California’s leafy green growers.” It’s not clear how many jobs $250,000 will create, but as we know and have seen, it takes an investment to grow just about anything. We are cautious, though, about depending on the government for job creation. We wonder, beyond federal grants, what it will take for exponential job growth and prosperity in Ventura County. Perhaps more spending power among residents would help, and that includes a serious look at what it costs to live here versus what the jobs pay and how to get the two areas to balance. New housing construction is only one part of the solution. Proximity to the beach and good weather are not good excuses for Ventura County’s job market to flounder.

Alpha, beta dogs

A

ccording to the article (“Public nuisance challenged,” News, Aug. 30) there are around 73,35 dog owners who don’t have a clue about responsible pet ownership. Responsible dog owners establish themselves as the alpha dog, and they work with their dogs from the moment they are adopted to socialize the animal around people and other animals, and establish voice control. Read how the Monks of New Skeet do this to see what I am talking about. Responsible dog owners continue working with their dogs throughout their lives so they remain socialized. I’ve seen too many dog owners leave it up to the dog, resulting in alpha dogs whose owners are just fine being Betas or lower in the pack hierarchy. I have lost count of the number of times I’ve been attacked when walking or on my bike, and woken in the middle of the night by somebody’s barking or crying dog. I’ve used pepper spray, tried to get away from the attacking animal, attacked back, pleaded with the owner (whose attacking dog is always

off leash to “call your dog”), all to no avail. The height of hypocrisy is when a dog owner tells me “my dog isn’t barking” or “I threw them out in the middle of the night because I didn’t want to listen to the barking.” Frankly, I find the attorney’s statements of due process for the dog owner to be astonishing in light of the very few instances of Animal Control taking action (69 out of 7,335 complaints).  In my opinion, the judge should have ruled in favor of the people who complained, and required the dog’s owner to complete a mandatory training to socialize the dogs (à la the Dog Whisperer). For the people who think I am a dog hater out there: Yes, I have raised and loved a dog, yes I worked with my dog every day on socialization; yes, Winnie was under voice control; and yes, Winnie was on leash when walking in public. Please do not use my name if you choose to publish this. There are too many kooks out there who have no problem threatening people with differing opinions.   T.S. Ojai

Kaepernick’s association with Nike must have felt like a way for the company to reach out to the black community, but instead all it has done is produce boycott talks, shoe burnings and a series of memes mocking the “believe in something” slogan.

He made his players cut their hair so as not to look as if they were protesting the Vietnam War, and during the 1972 Munich Olympics he told his athletes that their job was not to protest but to test their own abilities. “This killing of Israeli athletes is an act of war. And if there’s one place that war doesn’t belong, it’s here; 1200 years, from 776 B.C. to 393 A.D., your fellow Olympians laid down their arms to take part in these games.

news In Brief CSUCI TRAINS NURSING STUDENTS IN MEDI-CAL CARE

Adventure Time Experts talk county’s backcountry wilderness in Ventura by Chris O’Neal chris@vcreporter.com

O

ne could say that author Craig R. Carey and cartographer and Director of Los Padres Forest Association Bryan Conant know the Ventura County backcountry like the backs of their respective hands. The pair share a combined 60 years of local hill, valley and forest exploration and have experienced everything from close encounters of the mountain lion kind to lonely wandering with only a dog as a companion. Tonight, Thursday, Sept. 13, the pair will present “Amazing Backcountry Adventures” in conjunction with Ventura Land Trust in Ventura, a community lecture rife with humor as they paint a portrait of the county’s wild side. Carey spoke with the VCReporter from his home in Ventura.

VCReporter: The Ventura back country — what’s it like? Carey: That’s a bit of a trick question. The Los Padres, as a forest, is actually the second- largest forest in the state. It’s nearing 2 million acres. It has a variety of terrains from the classic Ojai front country chaparral at 900 feet above sea level all the way to the above tree line subalpine fields and granite clad mountaintops of Mount Pinos nearing 9,000 feet. Compared to a lot of forests, it has a wide range of environs, which makes it a great place to visit. It’s super-accessible, but I think one of the issues for Ventura as a town is that we’re pretty trail-poor, there are very few trails in town. There’s the botanical gardens, seaside wilderness trail at Emma Wood and the little trail at Big Rock Preserve that Ventura Land Trust manages. To get much hiking done, if you’re not just doing loops at Arroyo Verde, you have to go into the National Forest land, which is very easily accessible from Santa Barbara, Montecito, Carpinteria and Ventura.

We have much variation in climate and terrain from here to the Central Coast. How varied is our backcountry? The Sespe Wilderness, which is 45 minutes from downtown Ventura, is the largest undammed river in SoCal and it’s a huge wilderness. From City Hall, you can roll 45 minutes and be in wilderness, and that’s a great thing to take advantage of and something that both Bryan and I, in different ways, and in the same ways often, try to promote.

Where are your favorite backcountry trails in the county? Spoiler alert! We’re going to talk about that. I’m very fond of the Chumash wilderness. There’s not a lot of trails out there but it’s not chaparral. If you go off the trail in chaparral it’s a bloodletting, torn clothes and miserable dogs, but in the Chumash you’re usually above 8,000 feet so you can go off trail and wander for days. It’s got a very Sierra-like feel to it without the drive or crowds. So I’m a big

6—

— September 13, 2018

fan of the Chumash wilderness. The Chumash wilderness is on the very northern edge of the Ventura County line where it meets Kern County. It’s an area that, despite how beautiful it is, the trails are largely empty, so it’s a nice place to go if you just want to get out for a quick weekend.

Tell me about your encounters with the county’s wildlife.

In terms of big game or awe-inspiring apex predators, the Los Padres is fairly tame. You’ll see deer, you’ll see rabbits, but very rarely you’ll see bears or mountain lions. Maybe rattlesnakes is the more common of the concerning fauna. We’ve had a few run-ins with bears. A buddy’s dog decided that he was tough enough to go after a mountain lion; thankfully he never caught up to it. You spend enough time out there, though, the math says you’ll see some of it. A buddy and I inadvertently came across a golden eagle nest that must have had hatchlings because it was super-aggressive; if she’d have come any closer it’d have sliced our scalps. It was when they were clearing the wild pigs off the islands, the golden eagles came back to the mainland where their numbers were increasing; it was a noticeable change, you get rid of the pigs, bald eagles out-compete the golden eagles, and they come after me.

I didn’t really think about eagles … Nor I! I didn’t give it any thought until he came down after me. His wing hit my pack and I thought, oh shit! He’s coming after me! It’s a really weird thing and it’s happened twice now; maybe I just smell like eagle bait.

What brings you back to VC’s backcountry? It’s been my backyard since day 1. My parents met in the Bruin mountaineering club and when they had me and my brothers, weekends for us were about going to the backcountry in my dad’s tiny ’69 Ford Bronco and putzing around the areas in the backcountry. Bryan’s capacity as a mapmaker and executive director of the California Condor Trail means he’s out there all the time. Although he lives in Santa Barbara, so you can be a little snooty to him when you meet him.

How would you introduce the Ventura County backcountry to someone who’s never been? Go prepared. I know it sounds like something your mother or grandma would say. Take your essentials, let someone know where you’re going and go explore. There are so many easily accessible places, huge conifers, rock formations up in the Chumash area. Just grab a map, tell someone where you’re going and just go. It’s really a gift to have so much public lands abutting our communities. If people haven’t been out they need to get out there. ✦ Carey and Conant will present “Amazing Backcountry Adventures” tonight, Sept. 13, at 7 p.m. at the Poinsettia Pavilion, 3451 Foothill Road, Ventura. $10. For more information, visit www.venturalandtrust.org.

Gold Coast Health Plan, in partnership with California State University, Channel Islands, will begin introducing students to the “world of Medi-Cal managed care,” according to an announcement released on Friday, Sept. 7. Beginning with the spring semester, five nurses from Gold Coast’s Health Services Department will work with up to seven nursing students from CSUCI on projects ranging from areas of care management to clinical information technology and more, with the objective being to instruct students on how to become a “contributing member of an inter-professional team.” “We are excited about exposing the next generation of health-care providers to the importance of the work that we’re doing here,” said Dr. Nancy Wharfield, Gold Coast’s chief medical officer. “We hope that this will one day be a pipeline for people to come and work at Gold Coast Health Plan.” Lynette Landry, CSUCI’s nursing and health science programs chair, says that working in a “managed care system will give [students] a different perspective. “They’re going to learn more about the health-care system and how it operates and understand their role within it,” said Landry. For more information on the program, visit www. csuci.edu.

THOMAS AQUINAS COLLEGE PROCURES 700 ACRES AROUND CAMPUS

Thomas Aquinas College President Dr. Michael McLean announced on Friday, Sept. 7, the procurement of 714 acres of land situated around the school in Santa Paula, reassembling the adjacent Ferndale Ranch and its 131 acres that were deeded to the college in 1975. “We have hoped for some time to acquire the land surrounding our present campus so that, as our students have prayed at nightly Rosary for many years, Thomas Aquinas College ‘might be more firmly established at Ferndale,’ ” said McLean. “That day has arrived, and we are deeply grateful for the opportunity to secure the college for generations to come.” Currently, there exist two oil operations on the property and the college will not receive mineral rights with the land, which remains under control of California Resources Corporation.

Local groups explore nature with the sport of fishing BY ALICIA DOYLE | ALICIA@ALICIADOYLE.COM If you already love to fish, or if you’re a newbie who wants to give fishing a try, several groups in Ventura County offer a variety of options, including Channel Islands Sportfishing, the Ventura County Bass Club and Ranger 85 Sportfishing. Here’s a glimpse of what other fishing groups throughout the county have to offer. REEL GUPPY OUTDOORS PROGRAM

The Reel Guppy Outdoors Program was founded by Kevin Brannon, who saw a need for a free youth fishing program in his local community. A resident of Port Hueneme, Brannon grew up with uncertainty in a low-income, single-parent household after his father passed away, and spent time in foster homes and shelters. Living just a block away from the Port Hueneme Pier, he spent hours there and tapped into his resourcefulness, recovering used fishing lines and hooks, a tin can for his fishing pole, and any leftover bait he could scrounge from the pier’s cleaning tables. By age 9, he had worked his way aboard the local party boats, where he helped paying passengers with their fishing, untangling lines and sacking fish. While out on the boats, he found a place of security and certainty in his otherwise unstable childhood. This time imprinted his passion for fishing and the sea — and helping others. Brannon carries these values to this day, which he says form the heart and soul of the Reel Guppy Outdoors Program. “I’m doing this because I want to give back,” said Brannon, 39, who also produces a TV show called Reel Anglers Fishing Show, which is televised in California and produces the Reel Guppy Outdoors Program. His mission statement is to provide a positive environment and program for youth, using outdoor experiences, emphasizing education and life-building lessons, leadership, stewardship and team building. “Our catch phrase is ‘catch a memory,’ ” said Brannon, noting that the Reel Guppy Outdoors Program obtained its nonprofit status three years ago.

— September 13, 2018

The youths involved typically fish off the Port Hueneme and Ventura Piers because they’re easy to access, “and you don’t need a fishing license,” he said. The types of fish they catch include mackerel, bull head, croaker, sand sharks, sting rays and different varieties of perch. “Some days we’re catching one or two an hour,” Brannon said. “We’ve had days with the Boy Scouts where everybody caught a fish.” The program also offers boat trips to various places, including Anacapa Island. “On those trips we cover their lunch and fishing bill, and all the fish they catch on the boat they can keep if they want to,” he said. “If not, we release them.” In addition to learning the thrill of fishing, youngsters on the boat trips have the opportunity to see sea lions, dolphins, seals, tide pools and other wildlife. “Most of our stuff is educational and hands-on and teaches them about the ecosystem … while working on team-building and problem-solving,” Brannon said. Groups of children he has taken fishing include the “respite kids” associated with United Parents, which serves families who are raising children with mental, emotional and/or behavioral disorders. Excursions involving these kids create an “amazing experience” for the youngsters, stated Hannah Abitia, respite program manager, in a letter written to Brannon. “Your event added an element that allowed our clients to escape their reality for a few hours, while at the same time nurturing their bodies with the necessary nutrient vitamin D through the sun’s rays, and some fresh air by being outdoors,” Abitia wrote. “It’s always about catching a memory,” Brannon added. “We want people to know how easy the sport is to do if you have a little bit of knowledge. We want to expose

them to nature, the outdoors, and the fun and freedom of fishing.” For more information, visit www.reelguppyoutdoors.com or call 805-248-2166.

VENTURA COUNTY SPORTFISHING CLUB

Serving children as young as 5 as well as people ranging into their 90s, the Ventura County Sportfishing Club charters local fishing boats so that members can “fish with friends.” The club also offers a few longer trips on charter boats out of San Diego, as well as running a fishing trip to Alaska each year. “We fish anywhere there is water — mostly local saltwater, but we have members go fishing all over the planet,” said Chuck Brinkman IV of Moorpark, club president. Newbies to fishing should know that the sport is not difficult. “That is the nice thing about our club. Our members help newbies out on the boats,” he said. “And our club meetings provide a great deal of info, so that new people can get some info, ideas and assistance.” The types of fish they catch depend on where they are fishing. “Locally we go after white sea bass, yellowtail, halibut, rockfish and others,” Brinkman said. “Out of San Diego, we go after yellowfin and bluefin tuna. When we go to Alaska, we catch salmon, halibut, ling cod and rockfish.” The time it takes to catch a fish varies. “Sometimes we get hooked up right away; other times it may take an hour,” Brinkman said. “The captain of the boat wants you to catch fish, so they do their best to find some for you.” Most people think that to like fishing, you must like to eat fish, said Linda Karabin of Moorpark, who joined the club 15 years ago.

“Not true,” she said. “There are so many anglers that love to fish but do not eat it. Many of them practice catch and release. It is not just about the sport, but about where it takes you. Fishing can happen on the ocean, or the mountains, or the streams and lakes, and you can do it almost anywhere in the world.” Through her involvement with the club, Karabin has fished in Channel Islands, Mexico and Alaska. She also enjoys club meetings, which feature a speaker — maybe a local boat captain, a reel manufacturer or a lodge owner — who gives members real-time knowledge about fishing.  “It can be about how to tie knots, what jigs to use, what types of rods and reels to use when fishing for the different species of fish, and so much more,” Karabin said. What she loves most about fishing is the peace it offers to her life. “Being on the water, away from the hustle of everyday life allows me to unwind and relax,” she said. “I do not worry about the laundry or yard work, or other must-do stuff. I can enjoy having conversation with my fellow fishermen and -women without a cell phone ringing, all while waiting for that fish to bite. And when it does, it is such an amazing feeling.” She added that more women are fishing now than ever before. “Women are more independent these days so they like to participate in their own interests — they do their own thing,” Karabin said. “If their other half or family does not like fishing, then they have the opportunity to join a club to talk fishing and go fishing with people they know.”  For more information, visit http://vcsc. info/, visit Ventura County Sportfishing Club on Facebook, or email VCSCchumline@aol. com.


GOLD COAST LADY ANGLERS

The Gold Coast Lady Anglers is a saltwater fishing club based in Ventura that includes women of all ages and skill levels, with members coming from a wide range of professions and backgrounds. Founded in 2001 by two experienced anglers, Jeanne Zappia and Jacquelyn Appel, the group’s motto is fun, fishing and friendships. “Gold Coast Lady Anglers are a group of ladies who love to fish, both on the ocean and lakes and rivers,” said club president Lisa Rizzo, of Ventura. “Our club was established by two ladies who loved to fish and wanted to introduce other ladies to this fun sport.” The club currently has 58 members from all walks of life, some working, some retired.  “What ties us together is our persistence to become better anglers, teach new anglers, and just have fun on and off the water,” Rizzo said. While this club is designed for adults, “We occasionally have young anglers come along,” said Rizzo, further noting that “It is not difficult to get started fishing at any age — anyone can fish.” For those new to the sport, “This is where the Gold Coast Lady Anglers is awesome — we teach each other to fish,” she said. “When we are on a charter boat together we teach each other and work together. When someone catches a fish we all cheer.” The club also offers yearly seminars that are free to members to learn how to tie knots and cast. Additionally, it has experts from the fishing industry speak at the club’s monthly dinner potluck meetings, where members learn about gear, tackle, fishing tips and tricks — among other skills. The club offers up to seven charters per year, and members have fished on Lake Casitas, with the majority of their trips on sportfishing boats out of Channel Islands and Ventura harbors. Additionally, some of the ladies go to Alaska to fish, while others take trips out of San Diego to fish for tuna. “Our charters are full-day trips as well as overnight trips where we board the boat in the evening and sleep in bunks,” Rizzo said. “When we rise with the sun, we are at the outer Channel Islands where the fish are usually bigger.” The type of fish they catch depends on the time of year and the water temperature. Locally at the Channel Islands, for instance, they catch yellowtail, white sea bass, halibut, ling cod, red snapper, white fish and assorted rock fish. “If the fish are biting, we all catch something, and often we share our catch,” said Rizzo, adding that while everyone goes home with fish most of the time, “We do get skunked if the fish are not biting.”  For lake fishing, most fish are released. “On the ocean sportfishing trips, we take the fish home to eat,” said Rizzo, further noting that the Gold Coast Lady Anglers have put together a cookbook of “amazing recipes” for the fish they catch. “The deck hands will clean the fish, and we go home with fresh filet.” Many of the ladies have been in the club since 2001, and new members are always signing up to get involved. “Women make great anglers because

we are patient and are eager to learn new skills,” Rizzo said. “We are also instinctive teachers, so our club naturally teaches each other to be better anglers.” For them, the “thrill” of fishing never gets old. “The thrill is twofold,” Rizzo said. “First you never know what you are going to catch, and second, it is an accomplishment to land a fish especially after a fight. When a lady angler hooks up, we all are excited for her to land the fish.” For more information, visit www.goldcoastladyanglers.com/, visit Gold Coast Lady Anglers on Facebook, or email gcla@goldcoastladyanglers.com.

HOOK’S SPORTFISHING

Hook’s Sportfishing is a fourth-generation family-operated business that specializes in providing the finest in saltwater sportfishing experiences in the Channel Islands. It offers open-party and private charter trips for all occasions; and whether you’re looking for an exotic outer island overnight or multiday adventure to local freelance halfand three-quarter-day trips, it strives to help make unforgettable memories that will last a lifetime. As for children and newbies to the sport, “We help them learn how to fish and make those memories,” said Mavette Carlson, operations manager. The fleet includes the Coroloma with Captain JJ Fuqua, the Estella and the New Hustler with Captain Chris Volaski, and the Outrider with Captain Tucker McCombs. The types of fish caught on excursions are many, including halibut, sheephead, blue perch, calico bass, lingcod, whitefish, rockfish, bonito and barracuda. “We catch whatever’s biting at the time,” Carlson said. If a newbie is having challenges, like a young child, “Our deck hands will go over and help them,” she said. “There have been cases where the deck hand will cast out and wait for a fish to bite; then hand it off to the kids. It’s really cool to watch them catch. I’ve seen kids grinning ear-to-ear even if they catch a little tiny fish.” Fish are kept or released depending on the catcher’s choice. “If they want to throw them back, that’s fine,” Carlson noted. With children, however, “We do encourage to keep them if it’s something they caught, because it’s a little game changer. Some kids don’t like fish mom prepared at home. But when they catch their own, it can’t get any fresher — it’s not fishy, it’s not like tuna from a can.” While Hook’s doesn’t have a minimum age requirement for those who fish, a certain level of maturity is required with children, she said. “If you’ve got a kid who’s going to be running around throwing bait at people, I suggest leaving them at home,” Carlson said. Otherwise, anyone of any age and skill level is invited to come out and give it a try. “Whether it be fresh or salt water, it’s memories that you’re going to have for a lifetime that will instill something when you get older that you’ll want to do with your kids and grandkids,” she said.

A

ll eyes are on the U.S. president. Not the current one, but Warren G. Harding, POTUS No. 29. The Elite Theatre Company in Oxnard takes us back to the summer of 1920 with its production of Colin Speer Crowley’s Fifteen Men in a Smoke-Filled

Room, onstage through Sept. 30. The title references the backroom dealings that made Harding the Republican nominee for president. The play is set in a

Chicago hotel room during the Republican National Convention as Harding’s nomination hangs in the balance. Actually, it rests in the hands of 15 powerful men — titans of industry and political bigwigs — who make the deals that make the presidency. Thanks to the shrewd machinations of Harding’s campaign manager, Harry M. Daugherty (played with a commanding presence by Bill Walthall), and the help of tycoon George Harvey (an understated yet effective Sean Mason), Harding clinches it, but he doesn’t seem especially pleased about it. Harding (an endearing Scott Blanchard) doesn’t really want

the nomination, but Daugherty won’t take no for an answer. In a clever use of voice-overs echoing radio broadcasts of the era, Harding’s future is foretold. (Allan D. Noel is the authenticsounding broadcaster.) Another piece of fortunetelling comes from Harding’s wife (the wonderful Jill Dolan), who says a clairvoyant has warned her that Harding will suffer an early demise if he becomes president. Mrs. Harding, who confesses that her husband is all she has in the world, wants him to shun the White House and go back home to Ohio. He, on the other hand, does have someone else: his mistress, Nan Britton (the charming Reign Lewis), who sneaks into his hotel room for a good time and some hooch. (It is Prohibition, after all.) Crowley weaves a lot of history into a play that feels very relevant. What resonate most, however, are the human stories playing out in real time onstage. A man grappling between his desires and the inextricable pull of fate. An intelligent wife turning a blind eye to her husband’s infidelity while doing all she can to save him. A young woman negotiating the realities of an unfair world. An opportunist fighting for his candidate — or is he fighting for himself ? We don’t need to see the 15 men to feel their presence, but it is the conversations between two people that carry the most weight in the play. The scene between Daugherty and Mrs. Harding is especially hard-hitting. After a snooty waiter (the humorous Eric McGowan) seats them at a table, Mrs. Harding reveals that she’s on to Daugherty’s games and she’s not afraid to speak her mind. Perhaps it is historically accurate that she ultimately softens, but it would make for interesting drama to watch Mrs. Harding steel her resolve, and it would be great fun to watch Dolan have that moment. Angela DeCicco directs with a level hand. The crew — including stage managers Stephanie Rice and April Chibnik, lighting designer Tyson Sauthoff, master carpenter Bob Decker, sound designer and engineer Allan D. Noel, prop mistresses and set dressers L.J. Stevens and Stephanie Rice and costumer Lorna Bowen — together recreates a time and place with fine detail. We may know how Harding’s story ends, but it’s worth a trip back in time behind closed doors to imagine how fate might have cast the final vote. ✦ Fifteen Men in a Smoke-Filled Room through Sept. 30 at Elite Theatre Company, 2731 S. Victoria Ave., Oxnard. For tickets and more information, call 805-483-5118 or visit www.elitetheatre.org.

hristmas might be months away, but the yuletide is in full swing at the Hillcrest Center for the Arts in Thousand Oaks, and it’s time to make merry. Inspecting Carol, directed by Kirsten Chandler and produced by Panic! Productions, is onstage through Sept. 23. Playwright Daniel Sullivan’s farce is about a small theater company that’s in the midst of rehearsing its umpteenth production of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. The play-withina-play’s frazzled director is Zorah (played by an earnest Cindy Pearl). Surrounded by an eccentric cast, Zorah desperately tries to corral their quirks, outbursts and last-minute “tweaks” in time for opening night. As if getting the show on the road isn’t enough of a circus, Kevin, the company’s money man (played by the funny Barry Pearl), tells Zorah the company’s broke. Their only hope is to

— September 13, 2018

impress an inspector from the National Endowment for the Arts who will decide whether the company keeps its funding. In walks a wannabe actor named Wayne Wellacre (the wonderful Sean Spence), who hopes to earn a spot in the company. Kevin is convinced that Wayne is the NEA inspector in disguise and sets off a panic that spreads through the company faster than you can say, “surplus population.” Wayne is given the star treatment and the entire company falls over itself (sometimes literally) to impress him. Will the company be able to save itself, in spite of itself? Highlights of the production include Ron Rezac’s crotchety Bob Cratchit and J. Bailey Burcham’s highly strung Scrooge, as well as Dan Tullis Jr.’s Christmas Ghost with stage fright and Paul Panico’s slapstick turn as Marley’s ghost. Vivien Latham is charming as the voice coach who introduces a very interesting vocal exercise involving a body part and an imaginary lemon. Rounding out the cast nicely are Melissa Strauss, Marcello Silva, Sam Herbert and Nora Kulkarni.

Ventura Theater hosts the first-ever Ventura County Toy Convention this weekend by Nancy D. Lackey Shaffer nancy@vcreporter.com

Attention collectors, youngsters and the young at heart: A convention will take place this weekend in Downtown Ventura that is, quite literally, going to be all fun and games.

After attending similar conventions for over a decade, and selling his wares both at conventions and through his online shop, Daniel’s Toy Empire (which will have a table at the convention), he decided it was time to bring the fun home. (Gomez is also the box-office manager at the Ventura Theater.) “There will be over 20 tables of art, toys, comics, handmade items and more being sold,” Gomez says. “There will also be a Funko POP! trading area so local collectors can trade among themselves. . . . We have a comic book vendor from Bakersfield and a local comic creator.” He adds that the participant list includes “a local Hot Wheels customizer who has a huge social media following of 40,000 on Instagram.” COMMENTS: the number that Tickets willWrite be available at the door,on butthe kidsad of all ages can take corresponds to discounts your comments/corrections advantage of offered on tickets purchased ahead of the event, or the limited number of family-pack tickets, also only avail1. ____________________________________________ able in advance. “This event is 100 percent family-friendly,” Gomez confirms. “We want families to come and have a good time.” ✦

Roots connection

Teresa James to headline the Ojai Bowlful of Blues on Sept. 22 “I’ve got the fans going full blast,” laughs Teresa James, speaking by phone from the coolest room in the hottest house in Santa Clarita on this midsummer afternoon. Then again, what else is new? Isn’t wherever Teresa James performs both the coolest and the hottest place in town, with her fans — the human kind, that is — going “full blast” in appreciation? On Sept. 22 she’ll bring her special brand of “roots music” —- a scintillating blend of blues, country, gospel, jazz, anything that strikes her powerful vocal chords — to the Ojai Bowlful of Blues. “I just love to sing,” she says. “And I’ve done all kinds of music over the years, but I love blues because it is so heartfelt, and one of the only genres that gives you so much freedom of expression to perform — soulfully, with attitude.” On the other hand, “A night of nothing but straight-ahead, 12-bar blues is not that attractive to me. I’m a roots music fan, and I’m fascinated by how different forms of music influenced and fed off of each other over the years. Growing up, I was a huge Beatles fan, and they were certainly impacted by all kinds of musical styles. And so was I.” That was in Houston, where “My family was really into music. Dad played guitar, and he and Mom hosted jam sessions with friends at their house, singing old songs. They had so

much fun, and that’s where the joy of music really started for me.” After taking piano lessons, James and her junior-high girlfriends formed a folk group. By high school she was playing a variety of music (“rock, country, blues, you name it”) with other bands in the area. Then in the early 1980s, Terry Wilson and Tony Braunagel, leaders of the original Rhythm Tramps, were passing through Houston on their way to California from London, where they’d been performing for several years. “I was invited to play with them,” James recalls, “and Terry and I just hit it off right

away. Pretty soon, I was coming out to L.A. regularly, and finally I married him and moved there for good.” James worked regularly as a concert performer, nightclub piano player and session singer, as well as for commercials, TV and movie soundtracks. “I did a lot of demo recordings, maybe four or five a week for about 10 years,” she recalls, adding with a smile, “When I went from singing in garages to singing in homes and studios with gold records on the walls, I figured I was doing well.” Over the years she’s played and sung not

only with the Rhythm Tramps, but with the likes of Eric Burdon, Marcia Ball, Tommy Castro, Randy Newman and Bill Medley. “I’ve always considered myself a blue-collar musician,” she says. “I just love to sing, to try new things, to always be in the moment. That comes with age, I think — I have no fear anymore. I’ll go for any note, or a double-time phrase, because what am I saving up for? I know what I can do, so go for it. . . . And sometimes, you do things that afterward you wonder, ‘How did I do that?’ Because you let go and let the music take over. That’s the soul connection that people respond to.” The Band’s Levon Helm calls James “a true original. When she sings, you can feel it in your bones.” James is “original” in other ways as well. She and Wilson long ago made a conscious decision to be full-time parents as well as musicians, and have raised a son and daughter now making their way as professional performers. (Son Jesse is a musician, daughter Lucy a dancer.) “Our kids are fabulous,” she says proudly. “And we got to be there for them when they were growing up — as soccer parents, on PTA committees, teaching songs in the classroom. I feel so totally blessed that we’ve been able to do the music we love and have a real life.” The Bowlful of Blues fits nicely with James’ schedule and musical leanings. Also set to perform are contemporary bluesman Selwyn Birchwood, harpmeisters James Harman and Rod Piazza, Carl “Sonny” Leyland, the Kwan Telifaro Project, MC Gill Sotu and local favorite Hot Roux. It should be a soulful, emotional, unforgettable evening. “Unlike some genres that are getting younger and younger, blues doesn’t care how old or young you are,” she says. “I like a lyric where I can bring the meaning and heart out of a song; that helps form a connection between singer and audience. And I’m really lucky because Terry is a prolific and excellent songwriter, and his songs are stronger than ever. I just dress them up.” Their latest CD, Here in Babylon, has received strong reviews since its release in March, and it fuels James’ desire to continue to play as long as she can maintain both her love of music and her connection with her fans — neither of which is set to anything but “full blast.” F

A turning of the Thai’d By Dane Edmondson

OM Thai Cuisine 710 Ventura Ave. • Oak View $5.99-17.99 805-649-9001

I

was 8 years old when my parents brazenly decided to jet-set us over to Thailand. From the famed “floating market” to the snake charmers who ever-so-slightly eluded cobra strikes, it was an adventurous and integral part of my childhood. The only hint of regret looking back is not being more immersive with the cuisine, as it would become one of my staple cravings. So when I saw that the OM Thai Cuisine (formerly OM Thai Fusion) in Oak View had changed ownership I was intrigued. Though it took me a while to navigate my way there, it was a nostalgic experience I very much needed. Kind of like tom kha for the soul, if you will. Whereas the previous incarnation OM Fusion suffered from a slight case of menu identity crisis, OM Thai Cuisine, owned by Vincent and Laddawan Weyant, is an authentically focused tour de force. The ambience has changed quite a bit as well, including a colorscheme shift and a dining room facelift. But the walls are still bedazzled with sequin-heavy

tapestry art representative of the wonderfully warm and colorful Thai culture. And my server, Laura, was a shining example of this welcoming nature as she smiled and dropped off a cup of vegetable broth soup. Though it was simple and flavorful, I had a different soup on my mind. The aforementioned tom kha soup, a coconut milk-based broth with accents of lemongrass, kaffir lime and galangal, was a playful trio of sweet, spicy and tart. I wanted to go with the vegetable option, but my usual choice — chicken — looked divine on my neighbor’s table. Thankfully I didn’t have to choose as Laura offered the option of both. The rich bowl of bliss boasted spectral flavors, tastefully tumbling over each other for their moment in the spotlight. Each did its best to impress. Another appetizer I sought out for nostalgia’s sake was the crab rangoon. This rich delicacy blends fresh crab and cream cheese and is wrapped origami-style in wonton paper before being flash-fried. These little works of art were my go-to as a kid and still evoke those happy memories tied to my brain’s olfactory response. Science never tasted so good. For the main course, a vast array of opportunities abounded, and I intended to make the most of my food fortune. The first pick was a dish that I tend to use as a barometer for the quality of a Thai dig, and that is the stir-

fried eggplant. I am pleased to report that OM passed with high flying colors. I chose to invite fried tofu to the party, while mushrooms, bamboo shoots and basil provided other vital textures. It was one of the finest repreCrab rangoon: fresh crab and cream cheese and is wrapped origami style in sentations I’ve wonton paper before being flash fried. come across.

ADVICE GODDESS 

Swarm feelings I’ve been flirting with two guys all year. I feel a connection and chemistry with both, but neither’s asked me out yet. This weekend, I’m attending a going-away party of a grad student we all know, and I’m nervous that they’ll both show up and ask me out. (There’s also a third guy who seems interested.) What should I do? I wouldn’t want to be one of somebody’s many options.

We’ll make plans to go out, but she always cancels at the last minute, claiming that she’s “still a mess” and adding, “Hope you understand!” Should I just keep texting with her and see where things lead?

This is not because it actually becomes more valuable but because scarcity triggers a motivational state — a state of “grab it or lose it!” … “don’t let it get away!” Contrast that with how available you are — to a woman who doesn’t seem ready for a relationship but is up for the emotional perks that come with.

Consider shutting off the therapy spigot and making yourself scarce until she’s ready to date. Tell her you want to take a timeout from texting and give her a little time to heal ’n’ deal and then go on a date. Pick a night — about a month from now — and ask her to put it on her calendar, explaining that it’s fine if she needs to reschedule if she still doesn’t feel ready. Putting it on the calendar makes it tangible — but putting it in the future, with an option to push it forward, takes the pressure off.

Notice to Potential Bidders If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a Trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a Trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same Lender may hold more than one mortgage or Deed of Trust on the property. 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 In Source Logic at 702-6597766 for information regarding the Trustee’s Sale or visit the Internet Web site address listed below for information regarding the sale of this property, using the file number assigned to this case, CA0700035218-1. 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.

WARNING - IMPORTANT INFORMATION: California law provides that, for purposes of division of property upon dissolution of a marriage or domestic partnership or upon legal separation, property acquired by the parties during marriage or domestic partnership in joint form is presumed to be community property. If either party to this action should die before the jointly held community property is divided, the language in the deed that characterizes how title is held (i.e., joint tenancy, tenants in common, or community property) will be controlling, and not the community property presumption. You should consult your attorney if you want the community property presumption to be written into the recorded title to the property. ÓRDENES DE RESTRICCIÓN ESTÁNDAR DE DERECHO FAMILIAR.
