A thriver is a healthy happy person

with a brilliant and productive

future. Thrivers aren’t born this way,

thrivers BECOME this way. A thriver

is someone who has faced adversity,

like we all have, yet, makes a solid

decision to walk away from being a

victim. A thriver realizes that the best

revenge is living a great life. Thus, a

thriver is primed to fiercely chase their

dreams. In fact, a thriver isn’t afraid

to dream, and if he/she is…they ask

for help, knowing that it takes support

from others to help groom oneself

into being a Thriver. Additionally, a

thriver knows that although Life might

not yet look how they want in the

moment…there is still time to make

those dreams manifest. Thrivers come

in all shapes, sizes, ages, genders and

personalities. A thriver proudly wears

a badge of courage and a confidence

that they are worthy of success. A

thriver continues to flourish and grow,

acknowledging that Life is a journey

and not a destination. Thrivers accept

their shortcomings without self

judgment or punishment. A thriver

gives back to the community as they

know, everybody needs a hand from

time to time, just as they did. A thriver

knows they belong to an elite group,

yet, there are no membership fees

and everyone is invited to join the

Thriver Network. Finally, a thriver is

perpetually grateful for having made

the choice to Thrive, and not just

survive.

THRIVE

This column is dedicated to honoring

those who have already stepped into

the Thriver Network. By interviewing

with local Elizabeth people Scarcella who are ready to share

their Survivor-to-Thriver story, it is our

intention and hope to encourage YOU

to join us in the pursuit of creating a

great life. Now, who’s ready to Thrive?


thank you

Sabastian Reich The American Cancer Society

would like to thank all of

the sponsors, donors and

attendees of the 29th Annual

Lynda Carter

Desert Spirit Gala.

Because of the tireless effort

and generous contributions

of all involved, this one-day

event raised over

$193,000 in proceeds.

Until there’s a cure, we will

continue to fight against this

devastating disease.

Max Frost is one of those artists that

will make you dance with joy as you

listen and vibrate with his rhythm and

style. He’s upbeat and he tells it like

it is. As he say’s, “The rest of my

life’s gonna start today.”

Recently Max was on LIVE Kelly and

Ryan. Kelly excitedly told the audience,

“I love to work-out to this song!”

“It’s so upbeat!”

‘Good Morning’ starts off with this

amazing beat. Pepsi loved it so

much that the company used the

song for their primeire commercial for

Pepsi Sparkling Water called, ‘ Bubly’.

Max was stoked to see this commercial

air for the first time on Super

Paving Her Way!

Charissa Farley is an remarkable executive, parent,

entrepreneur, mentor, and nutrition enthusiast.

Her independent spirit and sense of determination

radiates through all she does. As president of Farley

Interlocking Pavingstones, she has lead the design

and installation of custom paving solutions for developers,

builders, HOA’s, contractors, landscapers,

pool companies and homeowners. Her attention to

detail is appreciated by all. She is a brilliant team

leader and puts her heart and soul into the team

and the projects. Charissa’s journeys have forged

her into a woman of resolve. Charissa has lost the

element of fear, an attainment that is driving her to

pave the way into a stronger future! Unafraid of the

process and willing to practice, Charissa shares her

enlightening thoughts with us.

Juli: Charissa, where do you reside during your busy work

week?

Charissa: It’s not at all normal. In theory, I live in Newport

but it never works out that way. Right after I moved, we got

a contract in the central coast and I was several months up

there most of the time. We have a lot of work on the coast so

I use Newport as a base and roll in and out of Los Angeles

and San Diego. My heart and a substantial part of our

operation though, is still here in the desert, so I end up here

a lot, and the cabin at Lake Hemet is a great way to hunker

down with fewer interruptions and do the work that requires

uninterrupted concentration.

Juli: Tell us about your family life.

Charissa: It’s not at all normal (lol). I had hoped these

kids would grow up and be doctors or lawyers or something

with more stability than construction…...but I so love working

with this family, and the rest of the team has been around so

long, they feel like family. My ex-husband and I have worked

together every day and have spent every holiday together

even though we have been divorced for many years. My

daughter, Tieshia is close to the business, just down the street

as an equity manager at Indian Wells Coffee. And my mom

and step-mom are close to the office as well. My daughter,

Jennifer, runs our estimating department. My daughter (from

another mother), Farrah, runs sales. And my youngest, Patrick,

is learning everything else. Kimberly, our residential estimator,

grew up just down road…..a six mile dirt road in Pinyon. And

our Vice President, Hector, and my dearest friend Maria, our

controller, have been with the team so long I feel like they are

a wing of the Farley tribe. With Capi and Michelle in the office,

our foremen who have been with us for years, our field support

guys, and our newly promoted crews, I feel like the company is

evolving into a well-oiled machine. Well, most of the time! We

are spread out throughout Southern California but in a strange

way the work keeps us close.

Juli: You have been extremely busy lately, how do you

balance your time between family and the multiple business

projects going on all at the same time?

Charissa: Balance? We planned to expand the company

from the desert to throughout Southern California and to be

one of the larger commercial contractors emphasizing technical

expertise. Then all of sudden last year, every strategy we

invested in responded…. All at once! A job at the billion dollar

property next to the Del Coronado, Coronado Shores, came in.

Irvine Spectrum, a multi-family project in Los Angeles came in.

Plus, a public school in Covina, a shopping center in Highland,

a Marriott in Goleta, a downtown project in Pismo Beach. Then

there was Downtown Palm Springs, Indian Wells Tennis Gardens,

and Bighorn Country Club….all at once! But we got them

done. And we are extremely proud of our work. And grateful.

And we learned a lot, and pushed to the next level.

Balance is always something that is evolving. It’s more like a

rhythm. I strive to keep a flow that continually pushes hard, but

is joyful in the process. The key word is strive. It isn’t always


LIVEMAGAZINETV 29


perfect. I think hot yoga is the perfect metaphor. It’s always a

struggle. But it is a rewarding one that often feels good, while

you push yourself to the day’s limits. Breathe, stretch, and release

simultaneously. It’s yoga practice; not yoga perfect. We

start from where we are. It also helps that many of the places

I work in Southern California are beautiful. I feel like I’m on

vacation if I let the day’s stress go…….I sneak in a bike ride,

a kayak, a hike, a sunset, a beautiful meal, a glass of wine,

or just great music while working at the computer and a fluffy

bed. It turns a grueling travel schedule into a mini-vacation almost

every day. Most of the time, it creates a work/life rhythm

that flows into something which feels like joyful productivity.

Its practice not perfect!

Juli: You have not only built an empire but your body rocks!

What is your workout and food routine?

Charissa: Ha! It’s a struggle. I have trained for certain goals

over the years, but now, I’m a little older and my obsession

is more about getting Farley Pavers from a successful entrepreneurial

entity to a professionally managed firm that will

be able to sustain economic change and provide for the the

next generation. The challenge is to figure out what you don’t

know and do what you aren’t good at. Having said that,

it’s all in vain if you fall apart in the process. I’ve lost some

dear friends along the way. And the thought, “do not waste

this life”, is always in my psyche. But what does that mean?

Have fun? Achieve something? Drink the wine? Fast? Climb

a mountain? Draft the strategic plan? In the words of my exhusband….”You

just want everything”. And yes, I do. What’s

wrong with that? But sometimes you also need to just sleep.

You’re going to regret asking about food. If the strategic plan

is an obsession….. Food is the other one. But it’s more than

what it seems. I love to cook, I love the farmer’s market (Saks,

the Palm Springs Airport, and the farmer’s market are my

favorite places in the desert). I love wild foods. And I love to

forage wild foods…...but all plants. I went “plant based” at

midnight on my birthday almost a year ago, and it is something

I am extremely proud of.

Throughout the last 20 years I have randomly trained for different

goals but now my goal is to elevate the business from a

successful entrepreneurial activity of a professionally managed

firm that can sustain economic instability. Just when you think

you’ve figured out the maze they move the cheese. And I’m

getting older. So with working out it’s not a routine with my

crazy schedule but how do I try to get something physical into

my day as many days as possible. I swim, bike, jog, walk,

train at the gym, kayak. Just anything I can. My ex asked me

about using a trainer and said, “when will you be trained?”. I

guess I am now.

Anyone who knows me read the food part of your question

and groaned out loud. Food is my other obsession, but in a

deeply personal way. As I said earlier, I’ve lost more than a

few people I was very close to; and it has impacted me deeply.

I sat on the board of Desert Cancer Foundation for many years

as well. I had an epiphany in the middle of the night on my

birthday almost a year ago. There is so much data coming at

us that you hear random information and you see documentaries

like “Food, Inc.”, “What the Health”, “Plant Pure Nation”,

but you don’t really hear it, or you don’t really understand what

to do. It such a big thing to change your eating. And there are

so many voices in your head. And even when you realize that

your way of eating doesn’t line up with your values or your

compassion, you still don’t connect the dots. And then another

friend gets sick. And I was worried he might die. And on that

night it hit me, and what hit me has been confirmed ever since.

We work so hard raising money to help people with cancer

and wishing there was a cure. Well there kind of is.

The estimated new cases of cancer in 2018 is 1.7 million.

(https://seer.cancer.gov/statfacts/html/all.html) More than 4

out of 10 cancer cases among adults in the United States and

almost half of all cancer-related deaths are associated with potentially

modifiable risk factors. Farhad Islami, MD, PhD, strategic

director, cancer surveillance research, American Cancer

Society, Atlanta, Georgia, and colleagues saidin an American

Cancer Society study, “An estimated 42% of all cancer cases

and nearly one-half of all cancer deaths in the United States in

2014 were attributable to evaluated risk factors, many of which

could have been mitigated by effective preventive strategies.”

One of those factors is diet. There is a growing group of physicians,

like Michael Greger, Neal Bernard, Michael Klaper,

Joel Fuhrman, just to name a few, who believe that the dairy,

meat and egg industries have not been honest with us about

the dangers eating these things. And eating a plant based diet

can prevent and even reverse some incidents of chronic disease

including cancer, diabetes and heart disease. Www.Nutrition-

Facts.org is a treasure of medical research showing that diet

may, in many cases, perform better than pharmacology. Don’t

get me started on that... or politics….. or the American monetary

system. In short, the epiphany in the middle of the night was the

voice saying, “Don’t act like you dont know.”

At least going vegan is the good way to know who your

friends are. Anyone who will still tolerate you is a real friend

indeed! And I can cook. And I love wild foods and foraging.

For me, cooking is like painting. I feel like I have hundreds of

new colors to paint with. I really haven’t missed much. When

people tell me they could never live without (fill in the blank), I

tell them, then don’t! It’s not going off the planet. I’m actually

only vegan-ish. If you are slinging caviar, I’ll probably eat it.

My favorite pair of shoes is leather. As is my hand bag. And my

car interior. They are already dead. You can always start with

meatless Monday. It’s hard to change a lifetime of brainwashing,

bad data, and customs. You just start where you are. If

you want to. Or not.

Juli: What is it like being single with all this going on?

Charissa: It’s just like the balance thing. You think you really

want something. But you have to lean in while you are pushing

hard, and breath. Otherwise you might not be aware. You

might miss things. You might not hear your own inner voice.

Life is a thinking-man’s game. And you learn as you go. What

I’ve learned is, it’s ok. I think you need to be kind of brave

to be single, so you don’t live in some kind of limbo….You


LIVEMAGAZINETV 31


constantly hear, “Don’t worry. He’s out there.”, and you unconsciously accept that

somehow you aren’t complete or your life isn’t whole until the perfect person in

the perfect scenario completes you.

But it’s not like that. Things are just the way it’s supposed to be right here, Right

now. I won’t diminish one day while I wish for something else I don’t have.

So many people compromise their lives accepting things they shouldn’t- out

of fear of being alone. If things change tomorrow, that’s tomorrow. Today

is perfect just the way it is.

Juli: You say you have reached the point of ‘No fear’. Tell us how you

have reached that point?

Charissa: After losing loved ones, almost losing everything in the last

couple of recessions, and now watching my hard working friends get close

to retirement and get sick, I have grown accustomed to fear. It doesn’t go

away, it’s like the monster under the bed. It just isn’t as scary. Life is scary.

Bad things happen. Don’t act like you don’t know.

In the eternal words of my favorite scholar, Tim Minchin (Youtube, you’ll

thank me, UWA Graduation Speech, 9 Life’s Lessons)

“I said at the beginning of this ramble that life is meaningless. It was not a

flippant assertion. I think it’s absurd: the idea of seeking “meaning” in the

set of circumstances that happens to exist after 13.8 billion years worth of

unguided events. Leave it to humans to think the universe has a purpose

for them. However, I am no nihilist. I am not even a cynic. I am, actually,

rather romantic. And here’s my idea of romance:

You will soon be dead. Life will sometimes seem long and tough and,

god, it’s tiring. And you will sometimes be happy and sometimes sad.

And then you’ll be old. And then you’ll be dead.

There is only one sensible thing to do with this empty existence, and

that is: fill it. Not fillet. Fill. It. And in my opinion (until I change it), life

is best filled by learning as much as you can about as much as you

can, taking pride in whatever you’re doing, having compassion, sharing

ideas, running(!), being enthusiastic.

And then there’s love, and travel, and wine, and sex, and art, and kids, and

giving, and mountain climbing … but you know all that stuff already.

It’s an incredibly exciting thing, this one, meaningless life of yours. Good luck.

DYNAMIC DUO:

Karen Sharpe-Kramer

& Katharine “Kat” Kramer

Levvy Carriker, Tony Marchase, Juli Ragsdale,

Katharine Kat Kramer and Karen Sharpe

Golden Globe award-winning actress Karen Sharpe-Kramer

and former Miss Golden Globe actress/activist/producer

Katharine “Kat” Kramer are teaming up for the first time in the

movie TURNOVER; writer/producer/director Linda Palmer’s

latest film project that is set to shoot in August.

I recently attended a fundraiser dinner for the film at the

amazing Cafe Piccolo in Long Beach with my Disney animator

and artist friend David Woodman. We were honored to

be asked to attend by long-time friends Karen and Kat, and

wanted to support this special project.

Karen is my “adopted” Mom, and Kat and her sister Jennifer

(a very gifted concert pianist) are my “adopted” sisters. When

my husband Paul and I got married in 2014, Karen stood in

for my Mom and my great friend, designer Robert Nesbitt

stood in for

my Dad. I lost both my parents in the mid-’90’s, so I was very

blessed to have these two amazing individuals walk me down

the aisle. It’s a memory and a day I will treasure forever!

Karen, Kat and Jennifer are truly a part of Hollywood royalty.

Karen is the widow of acclaimed social issue master filmmaker

Stanley Kramer. In a career that spanned over 4 decades

Stanley received nine (!) Academy Award nominations as

a director and producer; winning the prestigious Irving G.

Thalberg Award in 1961 for JUDGMENT AT NUREMBERG.

His other landmark films include GUESS WHO’S COMING

TO DINNER, SHIP OF FOOLS, HIGH NOON, THE DEFI-

ANT ONES, ON THE BEACH and IT’S A MAD, MAD, MAD,

MAD WORLD. Steven Spielberg famously said “Stanley

Kramer was an incredibly talented visionary, and one of our

great filmmakers.

Not just for the art and passion he put on screen, but for the

impact he has made on the conscience of the world.”

A long-time lover and frequent visitor to Palm Springs, Karen

recently did a book signing for New Zealand author Jennifer

Frost’s “Producer of Controversy: Stanley Kramer, Hollywood

Liberalism, and the Cold War” at Just Fabulous. Karen and

Kat had the audience in rapture, as they recounted behindthe-scenes

tales of how Stanley was able to go around and

behind the studio system to put his before-their-time

stories on the big screen.

Karen felt so strongly about the positive messages in Linda

Palmer’s TURNOVER screenplay, that she has come out of

retirement after 25 years to play the featured role of Pat - one

third of a trio of “Ladies who Lunch” at the cafe that’s at the

center of the story. She also saw an opportunity to appear

for the first time in a feature film with Kat, who has one of the

leads in the film, playing the devious and cunning Fran. the

multi-ethnic and handi-capable cast also includes entertainment

legends Bill Macy (TV’s MAUDE) and Lainie Kazan (MY

BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING, MY FAVORITE YEAR and the understudy

to Barbra Streisand in FUNNY GIRL on Broadway).

TURNOVER’s top-notch producing team includes the Coachella

Valley’s own Martina Webster, Linda’s frequent producing

partner and radio co-host Rae Davis, Brian McCormick

and Kat Kramer - following in her Dad’s footsteps.

SER ANZOATEGUI BRINGS

THE CORAZON DE VIDA TO

“VIDA”

-- THE NEW STARZ NETWORK HIT SERIES

Written by Dorie Beaverhausen

Television fans are probably not familiar with the name Ser

Anzoategui—a name that is rapidly catapulting into stardom.

Starring in the new critically acclaimed STARZ Network series

“Vida,” Anzoategui has gone from years as a struggling Los

Angeles theater actor to a television series regular on one of the

most anticipated new hit shows of the year.

“Vida” tells the story of an economically challenged Hispanic

community in East Los Angeles, intertwining the rich culture

-- food, music, religion, history, art and politics. Each episode

is layered with the flavor, heart and soul of a proud Hispanic

people. Anzoategui’s character is “Eddy,” a lesbian who loses

her wife in the opening episode. This traumatic occurrence

leaves Eddy to face her wife’s daughters, whom she has never

met, and, to complicate matters, the daughters do not know that

their mother was married to a woman. “Eddy is the heart of

the show,” says Anzoategui,” and she wants to keep going and

keep the family going. There is a beautiful thing that happens

when people are chosen family and I believe Eddy represents

this for a lot of LGBTQUIA people.”

When recently asked what it is like working on a ground breaking

series that tackles themes of Latinx life, and social justices

that affect East Los Angeles, Ser describes it the

following way, “It feels like a dream. I compare

it to the first time I went to Dinah Shore. It was

what everyone was always talking about. It was this

Pilgrimage to Palm Springs. I walked into the pool area

and I did a double take and thought is this a movie or

what, seeing all those people who shared similar ideas

and lifestyles in which I could relate. Like on “Vida”, the

amount of respect that each member of the production

and Executives at Starz have showed me is humbling

beyond words.”

Anzoategui is receiving major accolades from television

critics nationwide. The Hollywood Reporter writes, “…

the early standout performance comes from Anzoategui,

who is another reason Starz should plan on airing a full

hour to start. It’s hard to get an early read on Eddy and

a lot of things I read as wooden from Anzoategui in the

first episode become much more clearly a product of the

character’s sadness.” The New York Times writes, “Mx.

Anzoategui (who is gender nonbinary and and prefers

gender-neutral terms) is especially good as the grieving

Eddy…”

Born in Huntington Park, California and raised in Argentina

during the childhood years, Anzoategui, is a non-binary

gender actor -- one of only a handful of non-binary

actors working on television today. When asked what

non-binary means, Anzoategui is eager to educate and

offers a very simplistic explanation, “It means not fitting

into society’s explanation and expectations of gender expression

and self-identification.” Anzoategui does not go by

“he” or “she,” but prefers to be referred to by the pronouns,

“them,” “they” and “their.”

Before landing the role on “Vida,” Anzoategui had a recurring

role on the award winning series “East Los High” and appeared

on “The Fosters,” “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” and “Shameless.”

An accomplished playwright, this busy actor is known

for years of relentless advocacy for social justice. “When

I was cast in “Vida,” I had been doing extensive grassroots

work concerning neighborhood displacement awareness,

community access to fresh and organic food, transgender

& LGBTQUIA advocacy, immigration reform activism, arts

activism and work with HIV social services,” says Anzoategui.

“I acknowledge and give tribute to some of my success as

an actor because of this charitable work. Being able to truly

listen to someone else’s pain and story, while checking myself

on my privileges and judgments was and is valuable for me as

an actor,” adds Anzoategui.

Whether volunteering their time towards community issues,

helping the world to understand non-binary gender or working

on their craft as an actor, Ser Anzoategui is certainly a

unique and talented new television star to watch. The person

behind this name will rightfully earn their place at the top of

the Hollywood and LGBTQ+ communities.

ALTERNATIVES

Bruno Lemay, DMD

acid to decalcify the tooth. It is called dental

plaque and it forms very quick after eating.

The better hygiene a person has, the less

they will have decay. It takes both sugar and

plaque to decay a tooth. The more you brush

and floss, the more plaque removed and the

less risk of decay.

Additionally, elderly patients also tend to have

more decay. It is more obvious with elderly

patients who are loosing their dexterity, and

in general they tend to eat more sweets more

often, and not brush as often.

There is also another component that needs

to be explained here. In the mouth there are

several types of bacteria. Some are responsible

for gum disease and some are responsible

for decay. Some people may have the best

hygiene and still have gum disease and some

who have the worst hygiene may not suffer

from gum disease at all. This is because they

do not have the bacteria responsible for gum

disease. Same thing for decay. Some people

will be more susceptible to decay then others

even if they eat just a little sugar and have

decent dental hygiene. That is because they

have that kind of bacteria in their mouth in a

higher rate then another person. But that is

not a reasonable excuse. More brushing

and plaque control with a topical fluoride

application daily, preferably with a special

personal tray made at the dental office will

help.

Very rarely a person will suffer from gum

disease and a high rate of decay. It is

generally one or the other. If someone has

a high rate of decay, in general they will

not suffer from gum disease like bone loss,

periodontal pockets and tooth mobility.

It is a proven fact though, that the better

the dental hygiene you have and the better

your diet is in terms of limiting sugar intake,

the healthier your gums and teeth will be.

So, it is not true that decay affect only

kids. As long as you have one tooth in your

mouth you are subject to get decay if you

leave dental plaque on it and eat sugar!

The best way to prevent that is to have

good dental hygiene at home and brushing

after any sugar intake, and to visit your

dentist 2 to 3 times a year.

Dr. Bruno Lemay

Do you think that dental cavities are

problems only for children?

It is a general belief that cavities are for kids

only. But in fact, cavities affect all ages!

The reason why cavities are more prevalent

in children is mainly the fact that they tend

to eat more sugar and have poor hygiene

habits. However, when looking at the cause

of decay, which is basically plaque with the

presence of sugar, it is easy to understand

that cavities can happen at any age even if

your mouth is full of crowns.

Of course there are some people who have

teeth that are softer then others and are

easier to decay but that affects only 1% of

the population. Basically any diet rich in

sugar will increase your chance of decay.

Soft drinks, candies and anything sweet

will have a potency to create decay in the

presence of dental plaque. Of course in

order to create decay there has to be the

bacteria that will transfer the sugar into

awe of this magnificent animal. Blue is now a slave to

showtime and this gets the scientist in Owen, emotional

and angry. He goes on the rescue to set Blue free and to

enlist Blue to get revenge. But soon the scientists and

the public realize that they can not put the genie back in

the bottle. The genetic power of the dinosaur has now

been released!

Problem is that there are other dinosaurs not quite as

cute as Blue. And not as friendly either. I mean downright

rude.

by Levvy Carriker and Juli Ragsdale

LIVE Magazine

It’s been four years since theme park and luxury resort

Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment.

Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while

the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles.

When the island’s dormant volcano begins roaring to

life, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard)

mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs

from this extinction-level event. Owen is driven to find

Blue, his lead raptor who’s still missing in the wild, and

Claire has grown a respect for these creatures she now

makes her mission. Arriving at the unstable island as lava

begins raining down, their expedition uncovers a conspiracy

that could return our entire planet to a perilous

order not seen since prehistoric times. They try to capture

‘Blue’ one of the last surviving species of the 11 dinosaurs

discovered...alive!

The scientists are determined.

The team enlisted Claire, who they knew who could be

the only person to get Owen.

Imagine Craig’s List rants and raves meets Facebook. You

get the picture.

The epic fight begins. And Owen and Claire get all googly

at each other. Enter the romance part. You know those

close-ups saying, “You know I am doing this for you”, or

something like that.

These creatures were here before us and if we are not

careful they will be here after us. The main scientist at

Jurassic World welcomes the warriors to the fight.

This movie is so fun and not nearly as scary as Walmart,

so take your kids and let them trash the aisles. You know

the rest. The dinosaurs are so realistic and the connection

between Blue and Owen is so intuitive, almost

animal like. No words are needed. The animated

expressions that crosses species is brilliant.

Does Owen save the day? It plays out awesomely, and

Chris Pratt does an amazing job at his role.

The action-packed movie is actually lighthearted and

gives a great message that if you have a will you can

accomplish anything. Even against all odds. Even a live

dinosaur. Owen’s good looks help a bit too! You just

want to Photoshop him right out of the film and nestle

him in your hip pocket for ‘a good time later’.

Spielberg always satisfies. We strongly recommend this

film to all ages.

But what on this earth could possibly go wrong? When

Owen gets his chance to face ole Blue, they are intense

with one another. They stand eye to eye as Blue starts

to accept Owen. But then all of a sudden a dart whistles

through and stabs Blue on the neck. It is a tranquilizer

gun!

Soldiers appear out of the bush and are armed. As they

surround Owen and Blue, Owen admonishes the soldiers,

“Back your men up right now!”

The fight ensues and Blue is finally tranquilized. Then

Owen realizes that he has been tricked. Blue will be sold

to the highest bidder and be caged for the rest of his

life in a circus manner. Like all animals before Blue, he

is paraded before laughing humans...entertained, yet in
