A FINAL WORD<br />

Re: “A Vision Blurred,” Aug. 9<br />

First of all, your article about the PMCA had an apropos title<br />

because before we started this adventure we should have stowed<br />

away an endowment of at least $5 million for backup. How could we<br />

know we would be refused grants because we founded the museum<br />

and lived on the third floor?<br />

Secondly, an important thing was missing in your article. The<br />

successful years were under leadership of Wesley Jessup, Jenkins<br />

Shannon and Jay Belloli, despite the opinion of someone you interviewed.<br />

The real evidence occurred in the last year that we were<br />

sustainable.<br />

Wesley Jessup came from a museum background. Jenkins Shannon<br />

was indeed not a “museum professional,” but came to us from<br />

an executive position with Sony and was very wise with money,<br />

which kept us going. They all had a very supportive staff.<br />

LOGICAL SOLUTION<br />

It is pretty well agreed<br />

by most global warming<br />

experts that carbon dioxide<br />

is a big contributor to the<br />

problem, among dozens of<br />

other contributing causes. I<br />

have a logical solution to the<br />

problem, and it involves trees<br />

and millions of Americans.<br />

During World War II,<br />

millions of Americans (young<br />

and old) were involved in<br />

rounding up scrap metal and<br />

rubber for the war effort. It<br />

was extremely successful<br />

and helped our military<br />

industries produce the<br />

weapons and vehicles needed<br />

by our armed forces.<br />

With the foregoing<br />

in mind, why not have a<br />

massive, nationwide, WWIIstyle<br />

effort involving millions<br />

of citizens (young and old) to<br />

plant millions of trees? Trees<br />

thrive on CO2, and they<br />

produce oxygen!<br />

So, by planting millions<br />

of trees, with millions of<br />

volunteers nationwide, a<br />

massive amount of CO2<br />

would be replaced with<br />

oxygen.<br />

Can it be done? Yes!.<br />

Will it be done? Not Likely.<br />

Why? We might have to<br />

rely on politicians in the<br />

District of Crime (DC) to get<br />

it started with appropriate<br />

funding and legislation.<br />

The alternative is go get<br />

thousands of organizations<br />

involved in the nationwide<br />

tree-planting effort: Elks,<br />

Rotary Club, Masons, Boy<br />

Scouts, Girl Scouts, schools<br />

(elementary through high<br />

school), and thousands of<br />

others. Who could possibly<br />

get that many groups<br />

together to do anything other<br />

than squabble with each<br />

other?<br />

So there it is folks. What<br />

do you think about this<br />

logical idea for solving<br />

the CO2 aspect of global<br />

warming? Our very survival<br />

on this planet is at stake to<br />

keep us from turning into<br />

another Venus.<br />

Successful generations do not<br />

suffer hardship in vain. By<br />

bringing to light the vileness<br />

that can be found on both<br />

extremes, we can begin to<br />

the slights, the feeling of<br />

being less and thereby less<br />

We will deal and heal now<br />

with our own issues so future<br />

generations are better off.<br />

•HUTCH REPORT•<br />

BY EARL OFARI HUTCHINSON<br />

BAD NEWS<br />

FOR DEMS<br />

MANY AFRICAN AMERICANS REALLY DO LIKE TRUMP<br />

My first inkling that a lot more blacks than I thought liked President<br />

Trump was during a discussion over dinner with a relative a couple of<br />

days before the 2016 presidential election. He flatly stated that he was<br />

voting for Trump. Dead silence was followed by loud outbursts of “no,” then a<br />

nonstop pillorying.<br />

But he stuck to his guns, saying Trump appealed to him because he<br />

represented change. He thought he’d be good for small business and would cut<br />

taxes. It was a textbook Horatio Alger, laissez faire rationalization that would<br />

warm the heart of any conservative supply-side devotee.<br />

My relative is a post-civil rights era forty-something small business owner.<br />

So Trump’s bogus pledge made sense to him. He was just the kind of guy who<br />

Trump loved to brag about voting for him. As it turned out, more than a few<br />

blacks did just that.<br />

A new Rasmussen poll, if believed, shows just how right he was. According<br />

to the poll, an astounding one in three blacks said they approved of his<br />

performance. Now Rasmussen is a GOP-leaning poll. However, even if this<br />

staggering figure of black support is wrong, other polls, including an NAACP<br />

survey, show that Trump is doing a lot better than many thought he would<br />

among black voters.<br />

Trump’s black approval numbers seem even more bizarre coming on the<br />

heels of the Omarosa Manigault Newman flap. The one-time loyalist has<br />

lambasted the president for being a vile and corrupt bigot, one who takes every<br />

opportunity to bad mouth blacks and civil rights organizations. She claims he<br />

has a near clinical loathing of Obama, and has done everything presidentially<br />

possible to batter job, housing, education, health care and civil rights programs.<br />

The seeming contradiction is that few African Americans have been more<br />

hectored for their Trump ties than her. Despite her revelations about Trump’s<br />

naked racism, Omarosa remains the black person many blacks love to despise.<br />

In the run-up to the election in 2016, there were knowing nods when some<br />

polls showed that then-GOP presidential contender Trump would get none of<br />

the black vote. This seemed about right. Trump seemingly earned the goose<br />

egg with his horrendous record of slamming doors on blacks in his apartment<br />

rentals, his relentless birther savaging of Obama, his nonstop trashing of<br />

the Central Park Five, his enthusiasm for stop and frisk, and racially tinged<br />

cracks made at rallies. But by the time of the election that 0 percent magically<br />

transformed into about 8 percent of the black vote.<br />

The brutal reality is that thousands of blacks voted for Trump. He touched<br />

a tiny nerve with his claims that poor, underserved black neighborhoods are<br />

supposedly a mess with lousy public schools, high crime and violence, and<br />

chronic poverty. And he dumped the blame for that squarely on the Democrats<br />

who have run most of these cities for decades. Trump doubled down on that<br />

slam with a handful of carefully choreographed appearances with high-profile<br />

black preachers. This was just enough to take the hard edge off the almost-setin-stone<br />

image of Trump as a guy with a white sheet under his blue suit.<br />

There’s more irony here. Trump’s grudging criticism of white nationalists on<br />

the recent anniversary of their rampage in Charlottesville in 2017 drew howls<br />

from many blacks. This has been the pattern: Trump will tweet, say or sign<br />

something that hammers blacks and he’s roundly harangued.<br />

Yet, at the same time, many blacks are working, have more income and<br />

appear to have improved their financial lot. Trump hollers every chance he gets<br />

that blacks are supposedly prospering like never before, and he’s the reason<br />

for that. Of course, this is a bald face lie that has been repeatedly debunked.<br />

But possession is nine-tenths of the law, and since he’s in possession of the<br />

Oval Office and the media bully pulpit, it’s a convincing sell to more than a few<br />

blacks.<br />

The fact is, despite all the reasons why he’s more than earned the universal<br />

revulsion of blacks, a lot of people still like him. And any way you slice it, this is<br />

bad news for the Democrats. ■<br />

BROWN SIGNS RECENTLY APPROVED BILL TO END MONEY BAIL IN CALIFORNIA<br />

BY ANDRÉ COLEMAN<br />

California abolished money bail after Gov. Jerry Brown on<br />

Monday signed Senate Bill 10 (SB 10), a sweeping overhaul of<br />

California’s detention system.<br />

SB 10, authored by state Senator Bob Hertzberg (D-Van Nuys)<br />

and Assemblyman Robert Bonita (D-Alameda), does away<br />

with the state’s money bail system and instead allows judges to<br />

determine who should be released from custody following arrest.<br />

Supporters claim that the current system discriminates against<br />

poor people who either cannot afford to post bond or place<br />

themselves in a financial hardship by doing so.<br />

Shortly after the bill passed the state Senate on Aug. 21 by a<br />

vote of 26-12, Brown released a statement indicating he planned to<br />

sign it.<br />

WEEKLY WEATHER<br />

THU<br />

87°<br />

“Today, the Legislature took an important step forward in<br />

reducing the inequities that have long plagued California’s bail<br />

system,” Brown said.<br />

Brown’s signatures means the state bail system will end on<br />

Oct. 1, 2019. County courts will begin using algorithms to decide<br />

whether suspects pose a risk to public safety should they be<br />

released, and if they pose a flight risk.<br />

Brown has long railed against the state’s bail system. In his<br />

1979 State of the State address Brown called bail a “tax on poor<br />

people” in California.<br />

“Thousands and thousands of people languish in the jails of<br />

this state even though they have been convicted of no crime. Their<br />

only crime is that they cannot make the bail that our present law<br />

‘POSSIBLY<br />

UNLAWFUL’<br />

PASADENA WORKERS ACCUSED<br />

OF BILKING UNION ALSO TRIED<br />

TO BLOCK ELECTIONS,<br />

DECISION SAYS<br />

City Hall workers accused of improperly spending<br />

nearly $65,000 in union funds resisted<br />

holding elections and refused to turn over bank<br />

documents to union officials, according to a decision<br />

obtained by the Pasadena Weekly.<br />

Up to this point, the five employees, members<br />

of the Association of Federal, State, County<br />

and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) Local 858,<br />

are not being accused of any malfeasance involving<br />

city funds, nor are they under investigation<br />

by local law enforcement. However, three of<br />

the workers have been suspended pending the<br />

results of an investigation recently launched by<br />

City Manager Steve Mermell, and two no longer<br />

work for the city<br />

According to a decision by Richard Abelson,<br />

chair of AFSCME’s Judicial Panel, Local 858 Vice<br />

President Anthony Hackett, former President<br />

Marchell Parker, Secretary-Treasurer Sherene<br />

Young, Recording Secretary Lorenzo Spencer<br />

and Executive Board member Andre Hunter<br />

received $64,700 in money transfers and checks<br />

from Local 858 that they claimed was used to<br />

pay for expenses associated with a convention in<br />

Las Vegas and a conference in San Diego.<br />

Last February, two checks for $4,000 each<br />

were issued to Hackett for expenses associated<br />

with another conference, location unknown.<br />

According to Abelson’s seven-page decision,<br />

regional union Deputy Administrator Jeff Bigelow<br />

testified that, “In his roughly 30 years of experience<br />

working with AFSCME and its financial<br />

standard code, these types of expenditures,<br />

without sufficient detail in terms of union or<br />

further receipts, is unusual, inappropriate and<br />

possibly unlawful.” Bigelow also testified that the<br />

group had resisted holding elections.<br />

Bigelow and Administrator Kevin Brown<br />

were installed in June after the monetary issues<br />

were uncovered and the local was placed under<br />

“administratorship.”<br />

All told, $41,700 in checks were allegedly<br />

written to Hackett for expenses including flights<br />

and a hotel room for a union conference in Las<br />

Vegas in 2016, and a February conference, which<br />

never happened, according Abelson’s decision.<br />

He also received money for a training session<br />

in San Diego, also in 2016. No evidence of that<br />

training session occurring has been found so far.<br />

Parker allegedly received checks for $9,600<br />

for expenses for the conference in Vegas, but<br />

some of the checks written to him had no information<br />

in the memo line.<br />

BRIEFS<br />

NEW ADDITION<br />

COUNCIL ADOPTS AFRICA’S DAKAR-<br />

PLATEAU AS PASADENA’S<br />

SIXTH SISTER CITY<br />

BY ANDRÉ COLEMAN<br />

The Pasadena City Council unanimously approved the city’s<br />

first African city sister at its meeting Monday.<br />

Dakar-Plateau, in Senegal, joins Ludwigshafen,<br />

John Kennedy<br />

Germany; Mishima, Japan; Järvenpää, Finland; Vanadzor,<br />

Armenia; and Xicheng District in Beijing, China as a sister city partner.<br />

Councilman and Vice Mayor John Kennedy led a presentation on the city’s threeyear<br />

effort to find an African sister city.<br />

“We get rich from each other’s differences,” said Fred Alcantar, who sits on the<br />

city’s Sister Cities Ad Hoc Committee on Africa.<br />

More than 100 people attended the meeting, forcing the city to open two rooms for<br />

the audience overflow.<br />

Only two people spoke out against the motion.<br />

In March, ad hoc committee Chair Boualem Bousseloub, several other committee<br />

members, Kennedy and Mame Toucouleur Mbaye, honorary consul of Senegal in Los<br />

Angeles, visited the African community. Soon, Dakar-Plateau will exchange official<br />

delegations led by Ndoye and Pasadena Mayor Terry Tornek and conduct signing<br />

ceremonies in each city.<br />

Tornek said he was initially skeptical of Dakar-Plateau due to its record on LGBTQ<br />

rights.<br />

According to Human Rights Watch, a nonprofit organization that conducts<br />

research and advocacy on human rights, violence against gay men and transgender<br />

women had been on the rise since 2008. Following a gay wedding in 2009, gay men<br />

became the targets of violence and arrests. When one of the men photographed in the<br />

wedding, Madieye Diallo, died of AIDS, an angry mob dug up his body and dragged it<br />

through town, dumping it in front of the home of his parents.<br />

However, some progress has been made, and, according to a recent article in<br />

the Pasadena Weekly, there have been no recent active persecutions against LGBTQ<br />

people. Tornek said he was reassured by those strides.<br />

Dakar-Plateau has a population of nearly 37,000. The city is less than two square<br />

miles and serves as the political, financial and commercial center of the country’s<br />

capital of greater Dakar.<br />

In 1956, President Dwight D. Eisenhower founded the Sister Cities program to<br />

reach global peace and tolerance through a people-to-people concept of linking US<br />

cities with foreign communities around the world.<br />

Eisenhower believed that through goodwill, understanding, and helping other<br />

cultures peace would prevail.<br />

Currently, 1,060 US cities have Sister City ties with more than 1,900 cities in 120<br />

nations.<br />

Pasadena officially formalized its Sister Cities chapter in 1960. n<br />

UCLA TAKES ON CINCINATTI IN<br />

SEASON OPENER<br />

BY CHRISTOPHER FLOCH<br />

The UCLA Bruins football team opens its <strong>2018</strong> campaign<br />

on Saturday, Sept. 1, at the Rose Bowl, hosting the<br />

Cincinnati Bearcats. The game will be broadcast on ESPN, Chip Kelly<br />

with kickoff slated for 4 p.m.<br />

New Head Coach Chip Kelly returns to the PAC-12, after a stint in the NFL<br />

coaching the Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers. The guru of hurry up<br />

brings discipline, structure and his revolutionary spread offense, which transformed<br />

college football, turning the Oregon Ducks into a national powerhouse in<br />

the process.<br />

The <strong>2018</strong> UCLA Bruins will look vastly different from the past few seasons.<br />

First, quarterback Josh Rosen declared for the NFL draft. He was selected 10th<br />

overall by the Arizona Cardinals. And Coach Jim Mora was fired, ushering in a<br />

complete makeover for the program. Kelly and the Bruins are a great fit — both<br />

seeking redemption and success in the near future.<br />

Only two offensive linemen return this season, while junior wide receiver Theo<br />

Howard will be the primary weapon. This is the first time in five years that the<br />

starting quarterback has yet to be named. It’s a three-man race between Devon<br />

Modster, true freshman Dorian Thompson-Robinson and Wilson Speight. The<br />

spread offense requires a mobile QB who is adept at adlibbing and making splitsecond<br />

decisions.<br />

The new offense is expected to energize the backfield, a glaring weakness last<br />

season. Running backs Soso Jamabo and Bolu Olorunfunmi will be rejuvenated<br />

by the dizzying pace and tempo. Tight end Caleb Wilson returns from a seasonending<br />

injury.<br />

The Fan Zone is located in Area H, just outside of Gates A & B, along Rosemont<br />

Avenue and Arroyo Boulevard. The Fan Zone is home to three public tailgate parties:<br />

The Bruin Bash, Ralphs Ultimate Tailgate Party and the Lawry’s Tailgate. n<br />

requires,” Brown said at the time.<br />

Assemblyman and former Pasadena Mayor Chris<br />

Holden supported the bill, saying it is the first step in<br />

reforming the penal system.<br />

“Our current bail system punishes poverty,” said<br />

Holden via email. “Senate Bill 10 is a step in the right<br />

direction, but we have more work ahead of us on this<br />

issue.”<br />

Under the new law, courts will measure risk<br />

assessments of individuals and use nonmonetary<br />

conditions of release.<br />

People accused of nonviolent misdemeanors<br />

will be released within 12 hours after being<br />

booked. However, people with serious or violent<br />

felony convictions, multiple failures to appear or<br />

allegations involving domestic violence do not<br />

qualify for release. Judges will decide how to assess<br />

who is at low, moderate or high risk of reoffending or<br />

fleeing when determining whether someone should<br />

be released after an arrest.<br />

Defendants will not be required to pay for<br />

monitoring devices, such as ankle bracelets.<br />

Critics claim that the bill gives judges too much<br />

power, which could lead to decisions based on racial<br />

and social biases.<br />

But some critics claim it diminishes a judge’s<br />

power to hold people suspected of misdemeanors.<br />

“Sacramento politicians want to blow up the<br />

entire system because they have heard of extremely<br />

rare cases of individuals locked up for minor<br />

offenses and losing their jobs,” wrote Eric Siddall,<br />

vice president of the Los Angeles County Association<br />

of Deputy District Attorneys in a June 2017 column<br />

that appeared in the Pasadena Weekly.<br />

“No question we need to stop this from<br />

happening. It is clearly unfair. But it is equally<br />

absurd to strip away victims’ rights, diminish the<br />

power of judges to hold a person in custody and<br />

presume the release of defendants to overcorrect for<br />

the inequities on the other end of the spectrum.”<br />

The bill was originally supported by the state<br />

American Civil Liberties Union. However, the ACLU<br />

pulled its support shortly before the vote, claiming<br />

the bill would give judges too much of a say.<br />

“After further serious consideration, the ACLU of<br />

California has changed its position on the recently<br />

amended SB 10 to oppose. As much as we would<br />

welcome an end to the predatory lending practices<br />

of the for-profit bail industry, SB 10 cannot promise<br />

a system with a substantial reduction in pretrial<br />

detention. Neither can SB 10 provide sufficient due<br />

process nor adequately protect against racial biases<br />

and disparities that permeate our justice system,”<br />

wrote Hector Villagra of the group’s Southern<br />

California branch.<br />

Pasadena bail bondsman Ismael Trone said<br />

the governor’s action will decimate the bail bond<br />

industry. Trone said his family plans to shutter F&M<br />

Bail Bonds now that Brown has signed the bill.<br />

The California Bail Agents Association claims<br />

fewer people will show up for court dates.<br />

“It is a good idea because of the corruption in<br />

THE COUNT<br />

As of Monday, 2,080 days after the war in Afghanistan ended …<br />

2,224<br />

American military<br />

service members<br />

(0 more<br />

were reported<br />

since<br />

according to<br />

Reuters.<br />

the industry. The state imposes a 10 percent fee on<br />

all bail bond agencies. If somebody cannot afford it,<br />

companies force them to make monthly payments<br />

with high interest rates. It can put people in in a<br />

financial hardship. On the other hand, I do worry<br />

about it giving judges too much power,” said Trone.<br />

Advocates claim that too many Californians<br />

remain stuck in custody because they cannot afford<br />

to bail out, effectively creating unequal justice based<br />

on wealth disparities.<br />

According to a May 2017 report by UCLA’s Luskin<br />

School of Public Affairs, the median bail amount in<br />

California is about $50,000, five times higher than<br />

the rest of the country.<br />

The report estimates 90 percent of individuals<br />

remain in jail because they cannot afford their bail.<br />

“While defendants await trial in jail custody, they<br />

are unable to attend to their obligations, such as<br />

working, going to school, paying rent, or caring for<br />

family members,” the report states.<br />

The report also says that the current bail system<br />

may perpetuate racial disparities in the state’s<br />

criminal justice system, particularly among African-<br />

American and Latino populations, who it says are<br />

disproportionately represented within the state’s<br />

pretrial jail population.<br />

Interim Pasadena Police Chief John Perez<br />

supports bail reform, but says there are parts of the<br />

bill that worry him.<br />

“Most of what SB 10 offers is positive,” Perez<br />

told the Pasadena Weekly. “If someone commits a<br />

misdemeanor, this offers them a lot of opportunities<br />

to avoid a financial hardship. The issue that worries<br />

me is if a sex crime is deemed a misdemeanor they<br />

would have to be released in 12 hours. That makes it<br />

difficult to support.”<br />

According to Perez, several sex crimes, including<br />

lewd conduct, can be misdemeanors, which could<br />

allow some sexual predators to slip through the<br />

cracks of the justice system.<br />

Earlier this month, Pasadena police arrested<br />

a 48-year-old developmentally disabled man on<br />

suspicion of harassing a 4-year-old girl who was<br />

found undressed in the play area of a Pasadena Chicfil-A<br />

restaurant, police said.<br />

The suspect, whose name was not immediately<br />

released, was arrested on suspicion of harassing<br />

a child and was booked at the Pasadena Police<br />

Department.<br />

“He was charged with a misdemeanor,” Perez<br />

said. “Under SB 10 he would have been released 12<br />

hours later. We have to be careful we don’t throw the<br />

baby out with the bathwater.”<br />

Assemblywoman Shirley Weber, (D-San Diego)<br />

said she shares some of the concerns about the bill,<br />

but thinks it is a step in the right direction.<br />

“I have learned over all the years of my life that<br />

change is hard, it is difficult,” Weber said. “And often,<br />

out of fear of change, we do nothing, and things don’t<br />

get better, they get worse. And it requires courage<br />

sometimes to step forward and not just make that<br />

change, but work to make that change right.” n<br />

‘HOMETOWN’<br />

HERO<br />

COLLEEN DUNN BATES SHOWS HER LOVE FOR PASADENA WITH THE<br />

LATEST EDITION OF ‘HOMETOWN PASADENA’<br />

BY CARL KOZLOWSKI<br />

There are millions of fans of Pasadena, borne largely out<br />

of the vast worldwide audience the Crown City receives<br />

annually with the broadcast of the Rose Parade. But<br />

Colleen Dunn Bates’ love for the city goes far beyond<br />

that of an average citizen.<br />

‘HOMETOWN’ HERO<br />

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 09<br />

She launched her publishing company Prospect Park Books in 2006 as a means of<br />

creating and releasing the first edition of “Hometown Pasadena,” a colorful guide to the<br />

best the city has to offer. A follow-up edition was released a couple of years later, with<br />

both attaining sold-out success and enabling Bates to grow Prospect Park into a thriving<br />

publishing house with four full-time employees and a dozen releases each year.<br />

The third and latest edition of “Hometown Pasadena” was released in August, taking<br />

on an impressive new shape as a lavish coffee table book filled with lush imagery and stylish<br />

essays by some of the city’s most prominent writers. As Bates prepares for the book’s<br />

official launch party at Vroman’s Bookstore on Tuesday night, she reflected on the journey<br />

that has taken the book this far and the passion she has for her city.<br />

“I wasn’t really a company then, when I started, but I did the one book and saw how it<br />

went,” recalls Bates. “It did very well, did much more than I hoped it would do. The originals<br />

were more of a guidebook and had listings and were sold out.<br />

“I thought it might not happen again because it’s a guide book and everything is online<br />

now,” she continues. “People kept asking and asking for a new one, so I reinvented the<br />

book and it’s much more of a reading book than a guidebook. I brought in a lot more<br />

writers, and interviewed a lot of people. We made it a lot richer to read, and while I’m very<br />

proud of the original team and what we did, I thought it was time to expand the book.”<br />

Indeed, the third edition is packed with insights into what makes Pasadena great,<br />

while also encompassing Altadena, South Pasadena and La Cañada Flintridge as the book<br />

unlocks the insider secrets of the San Gabriel Valley. It impressively builds off the acclaim<br />

that the first two editions received, including rave reviews from the Los Angeles Times,<br />

Los Angeles Magazine and Westways, as well as nominations and awards from such<br />

organizations as the Southern California Independent Booksellers Association and the<br />

Independent Publisher Book Awards.<br />

Among the writers contributing essays throughout the book are Lian Dolan, Lynell<br />

George, Chris Erskine, Naomi Hirahara, Larry Wilson, Roberta Martinez, Mary Lea Carroll,<br />

and Raphael Simon, who’s better known as successful children’s book author Pseudonymous<br />

Bosch. There are also short pieces with two dozen notable locals, including<br />

preservationist Sue Mossman, comedian/actor Maria Bamford, State Assemblyman Chris<br />

Holden, teacher Siri Bookani, musician Phoebe Bridgers, food writer Jonathan Gold,<br />

Funky Junk Farms proprietor Johnny Agnew, Ted the Goldendoodle, and restaurateurs Jo<br />

& John Wee (owners of Daisy Mint and Fig Sprout).<br />

Add in major essays from original “Hometown Pasadena” authors Jill Ganon, Sandy<br />

Gillis, Mel Malmberg, Mary Jane Horton, and Bates, plus images from prominent local<br />

Colleen Dunn Bates<br />

photographers Karol Franks, Keegan Dunn, Jennifer Cheung, Steven Nilsson and Paul<br />

Click, with the cover art again a stunning painting by Pasadena artist R. Kenton Nelson.<br />

“As soon as it comes out, I feel bad about all the things we can’t include because we<br />

have such a rich community and we couldn’t fit it all in that book,” says Bates. “I had seven<br />

essayists add their different kinds of voices and what they wanted to write about and<br />

their experiences here. We interviewed a couple dozen other people and used their voices.<br />

That was a very conscious mix of all types of people from here: Caltech, the Huntington<br />

Library, a schoolteacher, a college professor, an artist and a chef.<br />

“I’ve lived here for 26 years and had this business here for 12 years,” adds Bates.” I<br />

know a lot of writers and I knew the voice I wanted it to have. All the essayists were<br />

personal friends or acquaintances. You’ve got to have the greatest hits: the Huntington<br />

and Norton Simon museums get their props, but also secret gardens that are not as wellknown<br />

but that the locals would know.”<br />

The book kicks off with a fun array of unusual stats about the city, including the fact<br />

that there are 550 restaurants in town. Considering Pasadena has a population of just over<br />

142,000 people, that figure makes Pasadena second only to New York City in eateries per<br />

capita.<br />

Another fun fact is that the city is home to 1,021 nonprofits, making it second in the<br />

nation to Washington, DC per capita. Similar details are unearthed and shared about<br />

San Marino, Altadena, South Pasadena, La Cañada Flintridge and La Crescenta and<br />

Montrose.<br />

An entertaining history of the city and its surrounding towns is also included, as well<br />

as sections spotlighting the hottest spots not only for entertainment, but also for science<br />

and high culture. But perhaps the most valuable part of the book, even for longtime residents<br />

of the area, is Bates’ detailed suggestions for nine unique and extensive architectural<br />

walking tours of the region. Among the neighborhoods covered are the Lower Arroyo<br />

Seco and San Rafael, Garfield Heights, Prospect Park and Bungalow Heaven.<br />

Beyond that, “Hometown Pasadena” offers beautiful photos and insider information<br />

on little-known gardens throughout the San Gabriel Valley and the best nature hikes in<br />

the area. The book closes with a humorous section called “Perfectly Pasadenan,” which<br />

takes a fun satirical look at 10 types of people who make up stereotypical segments of the<br />

population including the “Recently Riches” and the “Millennial Move-Backs.”<br />

“Our architectural walks date back to the first book, because I’m a big walker, I’ve<br />

walked all over town and I live on a historic street myself,” says Bates. “But ‘Perfectly<br />

Pasadenan’ is a fun way to end the book, because I grew up in LA and had a preconception<br />

that there’s one type of Pasadenan, but living here you learn there are many types and so<br />

we had fun with the types.” n<br />

“Hometown Pasadena” will celebrate its official launch with the “Wait Wait…Pasadena!” event at 7 p.m. Tuesday at<br />

Vroman’s Bookstore, 695 E. Colorado Blvd., Pasadena. The free event will consist of locally themed trivia games played<br />

by area celebrities and experts. Call (626) 449-5320 or visit vromans.com.<br />

The Real Deal<br />

CHIQUITA BONITA IS ALL ABOUT QUALITY FOOD SERVED IN<br />

BIG PORTIONS BY A FRIENDLY STAFF<br />

BY MONTE LAMONTE | PHOTOS BY DANNY LIAO<br />

It’s 1982, the year of “Eye of the Tiger” by Survivor, and<br />

“Bosom Buddies,” the sitcom that launched the career of<br />

the great Tom Hanks.<br />

It’s also the year Chiquita Bonita, a family-owned<br />

restaurant, started perfecting the craft of serving delicious,<br />

filling dishes that went directly from the grill to your plate.<br />

Unlike many restaurants, Chiquita Bonita doesn’t use a<br />

microwave to melt its cheese or make things warm. They<br />

have a proper broiler to do all of that. And let me tell you,<br />

this makes a world of difference, especially in the melting of<br />

cheese. This way, you actually get a nice brownish, crispy,<br />

crusty top to your cheese, providing a crunchy texture while<br />

you are biting into refried beans, chips and tortillas. It is<br />

way better than getting some watery goop that a microwave<br />

produces, which I think is a disservice to both the customer<br />

and the meal. Luckily, you’ll never have that issue at Chiquita<br />

Bonita. But I digress.<br />

When it comes to meals and appetizers, let’s begin with<br />

the Carne con Tomatillo ($14.50), sautéed steak strips with<br />

tomatillo sauce and onions. It comes served on a very hot<br />

plate and is complimented with beans and rice. The steak is<br />

cut into two- to three-inch strips and then smothered in the<br />

green tomatillo sauce, which is very slight, meaning nothing<br />

about the flavor profile is overwhelming. Instead, it’s like a<br />

finely mixed album on which you hear all of the instruments<br />

together at the same time. The spice is hot, but it doesn’t take<br />

away from the flavor of the tomatillos. And it’s perfectly salted.<br />

The meat itself is tender, thick and juicy. And, as previously<br />

mentioned, the cheese is perfectly melted atop the refried<br />

beans, which are not greasy. Imagine that: non-greasy refried<br />

beans with crispy melted cheese atop of them …<br />

mmm. The rice is fluffy, not sticky, and has a mild<br />

spice flavoring that is delightful.<br />

Let us now discuss the chimichanga ($11.95).<br />

In short, a chimichanga is a deep-fried burrito. I<br />

ordered the chicken chimichanga, which comes<br />

stuffed with chicken, beans, and cheese — deep<br />

fried to golden, crispy perfection. When you cut<br />

into this little piece of heaven, the first thing you’ll<br />

notice is the crunch. The tortilla is made from<br />

flour, so it gets super crunchy and golden brown.<br />

And that crunch is just the beginning of good<br />

things to come. Next, the steaming, melted cheese<br />

comes oozing out. I mean, it’s like a volcano of<br />

cheese! Also plated are the beans and rice, along<br />

with a huge side of sour cream and guacamole.<br />

Finally, I ordered the appetizer platter ($14.95),<br />

which features nachos, taquitos, flautas and<br />

quesadillas. This is a huge plate, and the entire<br />

base of the appetizer sampler plate are the<br />

nachos, a huge pile of chips covered in beans,<br />

shredded beef and cheese. All that is then baked<br />

until the cheese is melted to a nice golden brown<br />

with to a light crispiness. Atop of the nachos are<br />

placed flautas, taquitos and quesadillas. Everyone<br />

knows what quesadillas consist of, but do you<br />

know the difference between flautas and taquitos?<br />

They look almost identical to each other: rolled,<br />

deep-fried tortillas filled with choice of meat<br />

(chicken or beef), beans or cheese. But there is a<br />

difference, and that is in the type of tortilla used<br />

to make them. Flautas are assembled with flour<br />

tortillas, and taquitos with corn. The easiest way<br />

to remember the difference is that flautas and<br />

flour both start with the letter “F.”<br />

Let me tell you about the appetizer platter<br />

too. It is so huge that I feel three, maybe four<br />

people could share this as a meal on its own.<br />

And trust me, not a single person would leave<br />

hungry or disappointed. The appetizer is that big.<br />

I needed both hands to pick up the plate. To me,<br />

it felt like it weighed over three pounds. With the<br />

platter comes huge side orders of sour cream and<br />

guacamole.<br />

Like most Mexican restaurants, you get<br />

unlimited chips and salsa as soon as you sit down.<br />

But here they make their own chips and salsa and<br />

both are excellent. Chips that are warm but not<br />

greasy, and the chunky salsa is medium spicy.<br />

Before I forget, there is a free parking lot in the<br />

back, but you really don’t need it because street<br />

spaces are abundant on the east side of Pasadena.<br />

They have a TV on the back wall that usually has<br />

sports showing. And as for alcohol and other<br />

beverages, they have Mexican and domestic beer,<br />

draft beer, wine, horchata (rice water), coffee, and<br />

all the other soft drinks commonly available.<br />

If you are a fan of quality Mexican food served<br />

in big portions by a friendly staff, Chiquita Bonita<br />

is well worth checking out.<br />

MANY WHO HAVE WORK-RELATED EMOTIONAL AFFAIRS ACTUALLY<br />

INVOLVE THOSE WHO CONSIDER THEMSELVES HAPPILY MARRIED<br />

Dear Patti,<br />

My husband and I have what all our friends say is the perfect marriage, perfect family<br />

and perfect life. Tracy and I got married right after college, and even our respective<br />

in-laws all get along great with each other. Our kids (four of them) are teenagers now<br />

and we’re already looking ahead to when it will just be the two of us again.<br />

The problem is that I’m finding myself more and more attracted to one of my colleagues,<br />

Greg, who is divorced. We’ve worked together on and off for six years now, take<br />

occasional trips out of town for conferences, have lunches and dinners, and he has even<br />

been to our home many times for parties. In other words, he knows Tracy and knows<br />

how happily married we are. At the same time, Greg and I spend so much time together<br />

at work and speak the same company lingo that I find myself hungering for our conversations<br />

and interactions, more so I have to admit, than coming home and telling Tracy<br />

about my day. Greg and I also email each other regularly afterhours and I’ve become<br />

more emotionally open with him about things that are bothering me.<br />

Tracy and I have been planning a big vacation to celebrate our anniversary. If I’m<br />

honest, though, I worry I’ll be thinking about Greg the whole time I’m gone. I’d never,<br />

ever leave Tracy or our kids, but I’m scared my “secret” interactions have made me less<br />

than honest with my husband.<br />

— Anna<br />

Dear Anna,<br />

It’s not uncommon when men and women spend many hours a week with each other to<br />

develop deep friendships. As you say, you speak the same “company lingo” and rely on each<br />

other to bring out your personal best. Unfortunately, that level of closeness can also bring<br />

out the worst in otherwise honorable people by fostering an environment in which an emotional<br />

bond segues to an emotional affair. This, in turn, contributes to emotional distance<br />

and dissonance with respective spouses. Not only do unrealistic comparisons start being<br />

made but the daydreaming about someone who isn’t there during off hours erodes the quality<br />

of time spent with those who actually are there; specifically, family members.<br />

According to many mental health professionals, emotional affairs have come to be a big<br />

threat facing today’s marriages. They typically start out as platonic friendships that develop<br />

almost imperceptibly over time until they potentially surpass in importance and intimacy<br />

the relationship with one’s mate. Even in the absence of sex, the feelings of connectedness<br />

can be deeply passionate. In fact, the lack of physical consummation can sometimes be a<br />

justification for allowing the relationship to occur, mature and become as damaging as a<br />

sexual affair.<br />

Many people who have emotional affairs actually involve those who consider themselves<br />

to be in happy marriages. In your own case, I’m sure you never intended your friendship<br />

with Greg to become inappropriate or to escalate as a result of proximity and opportunity.<br />

The difference between a harmless co-worker friendship and an emotional affair can be<br />

subtle, however, and, thus, hard to detect when it starts to pose a threat to an existing allegiance.<br />

I’d like you to ask yourself a few things. When something happens during the day—<br />

whether positive or negative—is the first person you want to tell Tracy or Greg? Are you<br />

and the latter exchanging gifts or sharing secrets that exclude Tracy? Are you purposely<br />

creating more excuses to spend time together? Depending on your answers, you’re right to<br />

be concerned.<br />

Although setting appropriate workplace boundaries will be a challenge, it’s critical you<br />

do so. Maybe you neither established boundaries before nor worried about the psychological<br />

fall-out of an emotional affair because you loved Tracy and thought your marriage was<br />

solid. If you want to transform that marriage into an even stronger and happier one, though,<br />

you have a difficult choice to make. To prevent your relationship with Greg from going any<br />

further, it’s best not to travel with him or make a habit of taking private lunches or dinners.<br />

It may actually be a very long time before you stop missing the emotional intimacy you have<br />

shared but, for the sake of your marriage, it’s essential to focus on Tracy and the family you<br />

have created together. n<br />

BACK TO SCHOOL<br />

Twenty local kids ‘Shop with a Cop’<br />

After being selected by the Pasadena Boys and Girls Club, 20<br />

middle school students were paired with Pasadena police officers to<br />

shop for school essentials at Target in Pasadena with a $100 gift card<br />

paid by Pasadena Rotary.<br />

The Aug. 24 shopping spree marked the fourth year that the<br />

Rotary has partnered with police to put on the “Shop with a Cop”<br />

event.<br />

While shopping with an officer, kids often purchase common<br />

items which most people don’t even realize are a need, such as tennis<br />

shoes for PE, school supplies, clothing, and personalk hygiene items.<br />

In addition to Pasadena Rotary’s contributions, each year Target Corp. provides “Shop with a<br />

Cop” recipients with student goodie bags.<br />

Anyone interested in financially supporting Pasadena Rotary’s “Shop with a Cop” program,<br />

contact Program Chair JP Harris at (626) 664-3116.<br />

IN THE BAG<br />

Pasadena Scottish Bagpipe and Drum Band wins competition in Glasgow<br />

The Pasadena Scottish Bagpipe and Drum Band placed first<br />

in its division at the World Pipe Band Championships in Glasgow<br />

on Aug. 17 and Aug. 18, according to the Royal Scottish Pipe Band<br />

Association.<br />

This year saw 314 pipe bands from New Zealand, Australia,<br />

Denmark, France, Canada, Oman, Switzerland, Zimbabwe, Eire,<br />

the United States England, Northern Ireland and Scotland take<br />

part. Over 30,000 people turned out to watch more than 8,000 pipers<br />

and drummers compete for the title of world champion in their<br />

respective grade, the association reported.<br />

The various bands were broken into grades and musical categories “Band” and “Drumming.”<br />

The local group took the prize as a band.<br />

The group is actually two bands, with the Grade 3 band and Grade 5 band practicing at San<br />

Marino Community Church on Monday and Tuesday evenings, respectively.<br />

“We have been dedicated to the study and performance of Scottish bagpipe and drum music<br />

since 2006,” states the organization’s website, pasadenascots.com.<br />

“If you would like to learn to play the bagpipes or drums, we have excellent instructors on<br />

board. We have an extensive competition schedule from February until October,” the site states.<br />

They are also available to play at special events.<br />

“We have a lot of experience with weddings, galas, funerals and parades. We can offer any<br />

combination of musicians ranging from a solo piper to full band,” according to the site.<br />

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!<br />

Glendale’s Alex Theatre marks 93 years on Sunday<br />

The Alex Theatre, 216, N. Brand Blvd., Glendale, is celebrating its<br />

93rd birthday from 6 to 9 p.m. Sunday.<br />

The free event will be held at the theater and will include tours, a<br />

scavenger hunt, specialty cocktails, food and an auction.<br />

Patrons who donate $93 to commemorate the theater’s first 93<br />

years will receive a limited edition gift bag.<br />

Originally dubbed the Alexander Theatre after Alexander<br />

Langley, the son of C.L. Langley, owner of the West Coast theater<br />

chain that included the Raymond Theatre in Pasadena and the<br />

Orange Theatre in Orange County, the theater opened its doors on September 4, 1925, two years<br />

before the first talking picture took the nation by storm.<br />

The theater originally presented vaudeville performances, plays and silent movies on a single<br />

screen. An organist provided accompaniment on a pipe organ during the silent film era.<br />

In 1939, the theater was renamed the Alex, and celebrities flocked to it for premiers of major<br />

movies, including “National Velvet” and “Going My Way.”<br />

A backstage fire in 1948 caused $150,000 in damages, which is about $1.5 million in today’s<br />

currency.<br />

The Alex underwent an extensive renovation in 1993 which restored much of the original wallpainting<br />

and decorations.<br />

LOUISE GOFFIN SHARES NEW WORKS<br />

P.20<br />

That trusty old maxim about good fences making good neighbors<br />

leaps to mind — along with a host of recent political headlines —<br />

while talking with playwright Karen Zacarías about her comedy<br />

“Native Gardens,” opening at Pasadena Playhouse next week. Set in<br />

Washington, DC, and directed by Jason Alexander, the new production<br />

stars Christian Barillas, Bruce Davison, Frances Fisher and Jessica<br />

Meraz. Zacarías says the idea for the play was seeded at a dinner party<br />

where friends shared horror stories about long-running feuds with<br />

neighbors.<br />

“I kept thinking how primal and poetic and absurd all these stories<br />

were,” she recalls. “It’s about shrubs or trees or leaves or mailboxes,<br />

but there’s something about it that triggers something very real, very<br />

human. I was driving home thinking that it’s almost like every battle<br />

between neighbors is something that can become a war, and it’s always<br />

about things like property, ownership, taste, and culture. I decided to<br />

use it as a metaphor for what’s going on in the world, but really as a<br />

way of tackling thornier issues — racism, ageism, sexism, classism —<br />

through the metaphor of plants.<br />

“So really,” she says, laughing, “it’s the plants being political.”<br />

What Alexander calls “the inciting incident” that winds up the main<br />

characters, and thus the plot, is one with which millions of people can<br />

relate: a disagreement over the location of a fence separating properties<br />

belonging to two married couples — up-and-coming young professionals<br />

PW OPINION PW NEWS PW LIFE PW ARTS<br />

Karen Zacarías<br />

duo Frank and Virginia — whose cultural, economic,<br />

and social differences give the comedy its flavor. Frank,<br />

who proudly competes each year for a prestigious<br />

award from the Potomac Horticultural Society, is offended<br />

by Tania’s ecosystem-supporting native garden<br />

— just as she is horrified by his pesticide-spraying<br />

approach to nature.<br />

Comedy erupts as their differences escalate. That’s<br />

where some of the political relevance enters in, as characters<br />

insist on being heard without bothering to really<br />

listen to each other. Zacarías says the play originally<br />

had a much darker ending because “it’s easier to hold<br />

a grudge.” Surveying other feuds and people spewing<br />

hate on Twitter, she wondered what would be needed to<br />

reach a different conclusion.<br />

“It just takes people wanting things to get better,” instead<br />

of nursing “passionate anger,” she says. “This does<br />

deal with what it means to be a good neighbor, which is<br />

an interesting question to talk about right now because<br />

it’s about civility, in a sense.”<br />

“One of my lines is, ‘Just because you don’t like what<br />

you hear doesn’t mean you shouldn’t listen,’” Fisher says<br />

with a chuckle, her elegant vocal tone assuming a singsong<br />

cadence as if she was cajoling a stubborn husband.<br />

“It’s all about listening, and then taking it in and digesting<br />

it. What’s happening in this country is that there<br />

are people who are dug in to their point of view without<br />

trying to find a way to hear what the other side is saying.<br />

That’s why I’m excited to do this play. Thank God it’s a<br />

comedy because we can laugh and go, ‘Ohmygod, I did<br />

that.’ ‘Oh, yes, that’s my uncle, OK.’ Then allegiances<br />

shift, and you start seeing both sides.”<br />

Since premiering in 2016, “Native Gardens” has been<br />

produced at about a dozen theaters, including Arena<br />

Stage, the Guthrie, and the Old Globe. Zacarías, who<br />

lives in the DC area, has been quite involved in the<br />

Pasadena Playhouse production, thanks in part to her<br />

swapping out some “inside jokes that only DC people<br />

would appreciate” and collaborating with Alexander to<br />

incorporate some of his ideas. Fisher says she is relishing<br />

the opportunity to receive Zacarías’ input in person,<br />

and to rehearse for weeks with Alexander and the cast.<br />

She cites a Michelangelo quote — “I saw the angel in the<br />

marble and carved until I set him free” — and draws an<br />

analogy to the work the actors do in rehearsal, continually<br />

testing various choices as they construct the internal<br />

logic of decent characters who start out trying to<br />

connect before honest differences cause them to clash.<br />

“Michelangelo just got rid of everything that didn’t<br />

work and then inside the marble was the David,” Fisher<br />

says. “We’ve been trying some things — that’s why I<br />

love doing theater. You don’t have to show up with a<br />

performance ready to go like when you’re a guest star<br />

on a TV show. You have a lot of ways in which to attack<br />

a particular scene or a line, and it all comes down to<br />

looking into the eyes of your scene partner and telling<br />

the truth. …<br />

“The language is very specific. It’s been an interesting<br />

process of learning the dialogue. As I break it down,<br />

I understand why I say ‘those ambitious kids’ as opposed<br />

to ‘those kids’ — the descriptive way Karen turns<br />

a phrase. Now we’ve learned our lines and they’re inside<br />

our bodies, coming out of us as if they came out of our<br />

own brains, that process is starting to come alive.”<br />

The English-born Fisher, a respected film and<br />

theater veteran who lived in a half-dozen countries<br />

before settling with her family in Texas at age 13, is<br />

probably best known for her memorable turn as Kate<br />

Winslet’s aristocratic mother in the 1997 blockbuster<br />

“Titanic.” Long a vocal supporter of indigenous rights<br />

and environmental and women’s causes, she says “Native<br />

Gardens” is literally the answer to a prayer made<br />

when she was striving for a healthier balance between<br />

activism and work.<br />

“I started praying, ‘Please God, let me use my talents,<br />

give me projects now that I can put this energy that I<br />

have for social justice and human rights into what I’m<br />

here to do because I love acting so much!’ And then I got<br />

‘Watchman,’ an HBO pilot that just got picked up, and<br />

then out of the blue, Jason Alexander called and asked,<br />

‘Would you like to do this play?’ I read it and I was like,<br />

‘It’s about the environment and social justice and race<br />

and social norms and people of different backgrounds!<br />

Thank you, Lord!’ [Laughs] I feel really blessed that I got<br />

two projects that are about something really important.”<br />

Zacarías, who moved to the United States from<br />

Mexico at age 10, says she is excited to see her work on<br />

the Playhouse’s main stage. “Our stories are part of the<br />

American canon. It’s a comedy and we’re talking about<br />

fences not walls,” she says, laughing. “Hopefully what<br />

happens at the end is, the person you judge is not the<br />

four characters but yourself and what you would do, but<br />

in a disarming way.” n<br />

Preview performances of “Native Gardens” begin at Pasadena<br />

Playhouse, 39 S. El Molino Ave., Pasadena, on Wednesday, Sept. 5,<br />

and the play runs through Sept. 30; $29-$91. Info: (626) 356-7529.<br />

LOUISE GOFFIN SHARES NEW WORKS AT WINE & SONG NEXT WEDNESDAY<br />

Louise Goffin has seen tremendous<br />

changes in the music<br />

business, in her own career<br />

and also those of her parents, pop<br />

and Brill Building songwriting<br />

legends Carole King and Gerry<br />

Goffin. She has responded to those<br />

changes by thinking outside the box<br />

in terms of how she creates music<br />

and connects with audiences — for<br />

instance, releasing singles and<br />

homemade videos on her own dime<br />

and time, rather than hewing to a<br />

rigid album-marketing campaign —<br />

and focusing on the quality of her<br />

own creative expression and life.<br />

“The way to be an artist today is<br />

more performance art than it is the<br />

way it used to be, [when] you did<br />

your shows, put out your singles,<br />

put out an album, maybe had<br />

videos,” she observes. “Now … I feel<br />

like people really want constant affirmation<br />

that you are a total person<br />

with a life. They don’t just want the<br />

finished product anymore; they<br />

want to see you making it. They<br />

want to see the struggle. I mean, I<br />

want to see that. I like when people<br />

do stories about, ‘I came to this gig,<br />

ran out of gas, nobody was here,<br />

they gave us one drink ticket, no<br />

food, we’re eating potato chips for<br />

dinner and having beer.’ [Laughs]<br />

When you see one post after<br />

another of a marketing campaign,<br />

people just go, ‘Next!’<br />

“There’s a new open playing<br />

field in music. So many of us<br />

[are] resistant to the way people<br />

consume and appreciate music ...<br />

people have a hard time letting go<br />

of strategies that really don’t work<br />

well anymore. Being an artist takes<br />

so much resilience and persistence,<br />

and you can’t really fake it; you have<br />

to really, really mean it, or else you<br />

just give up. I’ve learned to have this<br />

laser intuition of where the opening<br />

is. It’s rarely in the places where it<br />

used to be. I’m always looking for<br />

new ideas.”<br />

Literally and metaphorically,<br />

Goffin has traveled a lot of roads,<br />

but she wears those miles lightly.<br />

The upbeat generosity of spirit that<br />

characterizes her music animates<br />

her conversation too, whether she’s<br />

discussing a humbling encounter<br />

with Aretha Franklin (recently<br />

recounted for Tidal: read.tidal.com/<br />

article/louise-goffin-recalls-a-closeencounter-with-aretha-franklin)<br />

or<br />

the way she shares the fruits of her<br />

experiences in master songwriting<br />

classes she’s been invited to teach.<br />

She’s been writing songs since she<br />

was a kid and has eight albums to<br />

her credit, with another, “All These<br />

Hellos,” due to be released later<br />

this year, which will contain some<br />

of her recently issued singles; and<br />

in 2011, she produced her mother’s<br />

Grammy-nominated “A Holiday<br />

Carole” album. Rather than a howto<br />

class, what she imparts comes<br />

down to just how much songwriting<br />

is a way of looking at and being in<br />

the world.<br />

“The things I’ve been doing are<br />

more introductory, like getting<br />

a first dip for people. … It’s not a<br />

matter of, ‘Here’s the rules, here’s<br />

how you rhyme, here are internal<br />

rhymes, here’s the meter,’” she says<br />

with a laugh. “I was really wanting<br />

to empower people to feel that they<br />

had something to say. People are afraid they’re just not good enough, and so<br />

often go into this inauthentic place of, ‘Oh, I have to do what I think people<br />

want to hear,’ and they don’t talk the way they actually talk, or it doesn’t flow,<br />

or they write down thoughts instead of feelings. So I basically just coach<br />

people at finding their own voices. What comes out of it is so amazing. I like<br />

helping people get out of their shells, speaking their truth.<br />

“The more you’re yourself, the better your life gets, because you find the<br />

people and situations around you that resonate with what you’re putting out.<br />

Everybody’s wearing their mask and doing their little dance. Life is so much<br />

more rewarding when you do what you love, you’re true to who you are, and<br />

you don’t make yourself small to fit into things that don’t serve you. To me,<br />

songwriting is all of that.”<br />

Last year Goffin gave a master class in tandem with fellow songwriter and<br />

music journalist Paul Zollo. They subsequently decided to co-host a podcast,<br />

“The Great Song Adventure” (thegreatsongadventure.com), for which they’ve<br />

interviewed veteran artists, songwriters, musicians and producers such as<br />

Van Dyke Parks, Squeeze’s Chris Difford, Lou Adler and Danny Kortchmar.<br />

Mostly, however, she says she is focused full-time on creating and releasing<br />

music and videos. Her new song “Is It Too Late to Hold On Tight” was<br />

inspired by her aspiring musician son’s departure for college; it will hopefully<br />

be included in her brief solo sets at the Wine & Song songwriter series next<br />

Wednesday. Unsure of whether to release the single, she seemingly heeded<br />

her own advice to songwriting students.<br />

“I thought, ‘This feels vital to me and it’s about something that’s happening<br />

in my life, and other people are gonna be feeling too.’ I finished it and made the<br />

video myself. That’s the beauty of the way things are today as an independent<br />

artist: literally, if I had something today that I wanted to put it out in a week, I<br />

could. …<br />

“You really, as an artist, have to look at what you want for yourself. What<br />

brings you joy; what makes you happy about creating and playing live, and<br />

sharing your music and your message with people.” n<br />

Louise Goffin performs during Wine & Song at Arroyo Seco Golf Course, 1055 Lohman Lane,<br />

South Pasadena, at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 5; the Contraptionists (featuring Paul Givant<br />

This fall, local bookstores and libraries are offering their usual range of works on<br />

professional, political and scientific triumphs, overcoming personal setbacks and<br />

crime and murder mysteries, many penned by local women authors.<br />

But this year autumn is also a time to recognize hometown writers, activists and<br />

celebrities — among them Pasadena native and two-time Academy Award-winning<br />

actress Sally Field.<br />

Vroman’s Bookstore kicks off the literary season at 7 p.m. Sept. 4 with the live<br />

quiz show “Wait...Wait…Pasadena!” staged in honor of the impressive latest edition of<br />

the perennially popular book “Hometown Pasadena.”<br />

Host Lian Dolan, contributing writer and contributing editor to “Hometown<br />

Pasadena,” will be joined by other contributors to the book in addition to local<br />

celebrity guests in leading audience members in playing Bluff the Audience,<br />

Pasadena Expert: Authors vs. Audience, and Lightning Fill in the Blank.<br />

Edited by Collen Dunn Bates, “Hometown Pasadena” writers include author<br />

Naomi Hirahara (also a contributing editor), LA Times columnist Chris Erskine, Jill<br />

Ganon, Lynell George, Sandy Gillis, Roberta Martinez, Monica Hubba, Akila Gibbs,<br />

Raphael Simon, Tom Coston, Maria Bamford, Star-News Editor Larry Wilson and<br />

Pulitzer Prize-winning food critic and author Jonathan Gold, a resident of Pasadena<br />

who died in July.<br />

The biggest literary event of September, however, is likely to be Vroman’s<br />

evening with two-time Oscar-winner Sally Field, who is promoting her memoir<br />

“In Pieces” with an appearance that will be held as a special off-site event at 7<br />

p.m. Sept. 27 at Pasadena Presbyterian Church. In the book, Field, who was<br />

born in Pasadena, provides what she describes as an “intimate, haunting”<br />

look at her entire life, from a lonely childhood through her acting<br />

career, and covering her journey as a daughter and a mother as well.<br />

Among the other authors appearing at Vroman’s is Glen<br />

David Gold, who started with a life filled with privilege but<br />

had a series of devastating setbacks as his father’s fortune<br />

disappeared and his parents divorced. Things got even<br />

worse when his mom abandoned him at age 12, leaving<br />

him to fend for himself, but he survived through a<br />

series of twists and turns and has the stunning<br />

memoir “I Will Be Complete” to show for it. Gold<br />

tells his tale and signs his tome at 7 p.m. Sept.<br />

17 at Vroman’s.<br />

On the flip side of families in turmoil, few if<br />

any families have been more politically powerful<br />

than the Browns, who produced two California<br />

governors in the father-son combo of Pat and Jerry<br />

Brown. Author Miriam Pawel has written the definitive<br />

look at the Brown family legacy, called “The Browns of<br />

California: The Family Dynasty That Transformed a State and<br />

Shaped a Nation,” and will discuss it with LA Times book critic<br />

David Ulin at 7 p.m. Sept. 20 at Vroman’s.<br />

If space exploration is your cup of tea, head over to La Cañada<br />

Flintridge’s Flintridge Bookstore & Coffeehouse on Sept. 20 to hear<br />

veteran JPL scientists Dan Kohne, Tim Thompson and Robert Anderson<br />

discuss their book “A Temple of Science: The 100-Inch Telescope at Mt.<br />

Wilson Observatory” from 7 to 8:30 p.m. The book is a retrospective on the<br />

100th anniversary of the 100-inch Hooker Telescope at Mt. Wilson Observatory,<br />

covering how it radically altered our conceptual understanding of the universe.<br />

“An Absolutely Remarkable Thing,” are already such a force that<br />

Vroman’s is hosting his discussion and signing of the book at 7<br />

p.m. Oct. 3 at the church.<br />

Anne Lamott has long shared her struggles with<br />

alcoholism, single-motherhood and depression as well<br />

as her deeply Christian faith in a best-selling series<br />

of essay collections. She’ll be discussing and<br />

signing her latest book “Almost Everything”<br />

with renowned Catholic priest and CNN<br />

religion expert Father Edward Beck in a<br />

third off-site Vroman’s event, this time<br />

at All Saints Church in Pasadena, at 7<br />

p.m. Oct. 16.<br />

Vroman’s isn’t the only hotbed<br />

of literary activity this fall. The<br />

Pasadena Public Library will host a<br />

number of notable events as well.<br />

Father Greg Boyle, founder of the gang<br />

intervention program Homeboy Industries<br />

and a frequent Pasadena visitor, will discuss<br />

and sign his most recent book, “Barking to the<br />

Choir — The Power of Radical Kinship,” from 1:30<br />

to 4:30 p.m. Sept. 30 at the Central Library’s Donald R.<br />

Wright Auditorium.<br />

From 7 to 9 p.m. Sept. 13, the library’s auditorium will<br />

play host to the Los Angeles chapter of the Sisters in Crime<br />

women’s mystery writers’ group as they present an evening of<br />

discussion called “LAst Resort.” The event will feature 10 authors<br />

who appeared in the group’s “LAst Resort” anthology as they talk<br />

about their own individual experiences as writers, and why the City of<br />

Angele serves as an excellent backdrop for crime and mystery fiction.<br />

And one must not forget the sterling seven branches of the Glendale<br />

Public Library. While they don’t have any author events scheduled for<br />

September-October, you can find groups and clubs for any age group or reading interest at<br />

glendaleca.gov/government/departments/library-arts-culture/calendar. Those interested<br />

musical. (Aug. 21 to Sept. 30).<br />

After the Netflix movie, “To All the Boys I’ve Ever Loved Before,” and the<br />

Ahmanson presentation of 2017 Tony and Grammy award-winning “Dear Evan<br />

Hansen,” you may never want to write another letter! The title character here writes<br />

one that is made public with heartwarming and heartbreaking consequences. (Oct.<br />

Can it truly be Halloween in Pasadena without the Wicked Lit ensemble? For<br />

and the Corpse” by Kerry Kazmierowicztrimm. “The Chimes: A Goblin Story” also<br />

returns to the bill (featured in the first two Wicked Lit productions)<br />

but with a new production. This year’s shows will run from Oct.<br />

4 through Nov. 10 with curtain times of 7:30 p.m. and 9 p.m. for<br />

a 75-minute total runtime and smaller groups. The entire<br />

production will be indoors and will include interactive<br />

“museum” exhibits that feature costumes, puppets and<br />

photo ops. Scary times await at the Mountain View<br />

A little Oscar Wilde horror will be on stage<br />

at A Noise Within with Wilde’s “The Picture<br />

by Michael Michetti, the hauntingly<br />

beautiful original production ran in<br />

the realities of Jewish history that is missing from<br />

Shakespeare’s “The Merchant of Venice.” But you won’t be<br />

stuck in the 16th century. This play deals with the sacrifices<br />

of fathers and daughters and lovers and friends today and<br />

beyond. (Sept. 27-Nov. 4).<br />

Instead of reading between and beyond the lines,<br />

at Caltech for one night the Reduced Shakespeare<br />

Company deletes lines, pages, characters and all<br />

the unnecessary parts to give you “The Complete<br />

Works of William Shakespeare (abridged)<br />

(revised).” Knowing time is precious, Adam<br />

Long, Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield (with<br />

additional material by Reed Martin)<br />

have winnowed Shakespeare down<br />

to a mere 97 minutes for 37 plays.<br />

Directed by Austin Tichenor and<br />

Martin. (Oct. 20).<br />

If you insist on a more<br />

traditional approach to the<br />

bard, and if free is your favorite<br />

four-lettered word, then be sure<br />

to pencil in “The Tempest” at Brand<br />

Park in Glendale (Oct. 4-20, 7:30 p.m.<br />

Reservations required).<br />

In Southern California, fall is the time<br />

for gardening and the Pasadena Playhouse<br />

has a new comedy, “Native Gardens,” to get you<br />

in the right frame of mind. “Modern Family” star<br />

(Ronaldo) Christian Barillas, Oscar-nominee Bruce<br />

Davison, Frances Fisher (“Titanic” and “Unforgiven”)<br />

and Jessica Meraz (TNT’s “Major Crimes”) lead the cast in<br />

what amounts to a horticultural War of the Hoses (Sept. 5-<br />

30). Directed by Jason Alexander.<br />

In October, the Playhouse will be host to ghosts with Stephen<br />

Mallatratt’s adaptation of Susan Hill’s ghost story, “The Woman in<br />

Black.” This particular woman is believed to have cursed a man’s family,<br />

with the exorcism set to begin on Oct. 17 (to Nov. 11) with special premium<br />

packages available for Oct. 30 and 31.<br />

Caltech will have “Demons, Devils and Divas: Ghostly Tales from Opera and Musical<br />

Theater” (Oct. 30 at 8 p.m.) presented by sopranos Suzan Hanson and Shana Blake Hill,<br />

baritone Roberto Gomez and bass-baritone (and Caltech alum) Dean Elzinga. Pianist<br />

Victoria Kirsch will narrate this staged evening of Halloween-inspired songs and arias from<br />

a variety of sources, including Sondheim’s “Sweeney Todd” and Verdi’s “Macbeth.”<br />

A ghost and witch bring song and sin to the Los Angeles Opera Company at the<br />

Chandler Pavilion. Ramón Vargas is “Don Carlo,” a man who has lost his fiancée to his<br />

father, the King of Spain and now confronts the Spanish Inquisition. Plácido Domingo plays<br />

his best friend Rodrigo, Marquis of Posa. (Sept. 22, 29 and Oct. 4, 7, 11, 14). Twelve-foot-tall<br />

creatures and special effects bring Engelbert Humperdinck’s classic opera “Hansel and<br />

Gretel” to life. Diva Susan Graham plays the wicked witch on fantastical sets, luring the<br />

titular characters to her trap. (Nov. 17, 25 and Dec. 9, 12, 15).<br />

For more meditative fair, Philip Glass fans and those interested in Gandhi can be<br />

mesmerized by the “truth force” that drove Gandhi (Sean Panikkar) forward into history<br />

in “Satyagraha.” (Oct. 20, 27 and Nov. 1, 4, 8, 11) as the aging king who is going mad which<br />

allows this blood-thirsty daughter to terrorize the kingdom’s citizens in “Nabucco.” (Oct. 14<br />

and Nov. 2, 5, 8, 11 and 19).<br />

The Sierra Madre Playhouse has Weller Martin (Alan Blumenfeld) fighting old age at<br />

a nursing home and battling Fonsia Dorsey (Katherine James) at cards in D.L. Coburn’s<br />

Pulitzer Prize-winning “The Gin Game” (Sept. 22 to Oct.<br />

1).<br />

Two different types of relocation camps will be<br />

featured in downtown productions this fall. In<br />

Qui Nguyen’s “Vietgone” by East West Players<br />

at the David Henry Hwang Theatre in<br />

Little Tokyo, refugees Quang and Tong<br />

meet at a relocation camp in Arkansas<br />

(Oct. 18-Nov. 11). The Mark Taper<br />

Forum, in association with El<br />

Teatro Campesino, presents<br />

Luis Valdez’s “Valley of the<br />

Heart,” a story about two lovers<br />

from immigrant families — the<br />

Yamaguchis and the Montaños —<br />

during World War II (Oct. 30-Nov. 9)<br />

The Mark Taper Forum also presents<br />

Pulitzer Prize-winning “Sweat,” another<br />

drama about hard times, picket lines and<br />

friendships, this time in the industrial town of<br />

Reading, Pennsylvania (Aug. 29-Oct. 7).<br />

At the Alex Theatre, the Musical Theatre Guild<br />

will remind us how wild aunts can be fun with “Mame”<br />

(Sept. 23, 7 p.m.) and also give us a little lusty Greek<br />

romance with “Zorba” (Nov. 11, 7 p.m.).<br />

At REDCAT, expect performances that push the boundaries<br />

of theater. Dutch visual and performing artists Pauline Kalker,<br />

Arléne Hoornweg and Herman Helle recreate a miniature<br />

Auschwitz to dramatize the finals days of Kalker’s grandfather<br />

in “Hotel Modern: KAMP” (Sept. 20-23). Performance artist Ken Jacobs creates unique<br />

performances with his Nervous Magic Lantern and its mesmerizing hallucinatorylike<br />

imagery in “Metropolis Looms And The Bad Maria Is Tuned Up” (Oct. 8). “Jack<br />

&” humorously considers a man’s re-entry into society after prison (Nov. 15-17). Ellen<br />

Reid’s “Prism,” presented with LA Opera explores the bonds between mother and<br />

sickly child (Nov. 29-Dec. 2). And My Barbarian’s “Non-Western” is a musical fantasy<br />

that promises a confrontation between the Virgin Mary and a pterodactyl at the La<br />

Brea Tar Pits (Dec. 13-16).<br />

For a change of pace, you can take a trip back in time for a one-nighter — “The<br />

Return of Vaudeville,” presented by the Roaring Twenties Street Jam at Throop Hall<br />

(Oct. 13).<br />

Holiday fare includes the traditional “A Christmas Carol” at A Noise Within<br />

from Dec. 1 to 23 and the Lythgoe Family Panto, in association with the Pasadena<br />

Feasts for<br />

the Eyes<br />

PREPARE TO BE DAZZLED THIS FALL AT<br />

PASADENA-AREA MUSEUMS AND GALLERIES<br />

BY SHEILA MENDES COLEMAN<br />

This fall, the Pasadena area’s many museums and<br />

galleries present numerous exciting exhibits sure<br />

to deliver a memorable afternoon or evening of<br />

art appreciation.<br />

On view from Sept. 14 to Jan. 6, the USC<br />

Pacific Asia Museum presents “Ceremonies<br />

& Celebrations: Textile Treasures<br />

from the USC Pacific Asia Museum<br />

Collection.” Guests will delight in<br />

their newly redesigned gift shop,<br />

but the real draw is the museum’s<br />

extraordinary collection of cultural garb<br />

from all over the world. This prestigious<br />

collection, consisting of more than 2,700 pieces<br />

of costumes and textiles from India, Korea,<br />

China, Japan and Southeast Asian countries with<br />

rich cultural traditions, is divided into four thematic<br />

sections.<br />

The Armory Center for the <strong>Arts</strong> is spotlighting the<br />

extraordinary lives and talents of three Inuit artists in<br />

“Akunnittinni: A Kinngait Family Portrait.” Running until Dec. 16,<br />

the Amory’s exhibition revolves around three generations of worldrenowned<br />

Inuit women in Canada’s Arctic Region whose stirring view<br />

of village life has garnered much critical acclaim.<br />

Sadly, this will be the last year in operation for local favorite, the<br />

Pasadena Museum of California Art. In a recent vote, board members recommended<br />

the museum’s shuttering with the culmination of their October exhibitions,<br />

including: “Judy Chicago’s Birth Project: Born Again,” a stunning needlework project<br />

analyzing “the interrelationships among motherhood, maternity, femaleness, and<br />

gender”; “Grafton Tyler Brown: Exploring California,” a tribute to the iconic<br />

African-American artist’s scenic lithography, graphic design and paintings that<br />

depict the stunning beauty of our magical state; and “Brody Albert: Strata,”<br />

a mind-bending foray into the often overlooked quirks and oddities<br />

of the California landscape. Albert’s creations are a commentary<br />

on the “unnoticed exchanges between people, environment, and<br />

industry,” as well as “the marks which inhabitants leave on their<br />

surroundings.” All three exceptional exhibits will run until Oct. 7.<br />

The Southern California Children’s Museum, which turned<br />

5 this year, will start “Rise and Sing” classes this fall. The<br />

45-minute class is designed for parents, caregivers<br />

and children to participate together in active music<br />

making, while building and strengthening genuine<br />

bonds of trust and communication. The 10 classes<br />

run from Sept. 17 to Dec. 3 and cost $200.<br />

Through Sept. 2, “Dreaming the Universe:<br />

The Intersection of Science, Fiction & Southern<br />

California” continues at the Pasadena Museum of<br />

History. The exhibit examines the history of science<br />

fiction in Southern California from the 1930s to the<br />

1980s, and how it interacted with the advances of science<br />

and changes in technology and society. The exhibition<br />

features historic artifacts, fine art, graphic arts, books and<br />

historic photographs.<br />

Through Oct. 1, the Huntington Library, Art Collections and<br />

Botanical Gardens presents, in all its floral splendor, “Nightwalk<br />

in the Chinese Garden,” a play written and directed by Stan Lai, and<br />

premiering exclusively in the Chinese Garden from Sept. 21 to Oct. 26. Lai’s<br />

masterpiece blends segments of the 16th-century Chinese tragicomedy “The<br />

Peony Pavilion,” with stories of early California. Every performance evening a<br />

small group of 40 fortunate guests will be submerged in a world of earthly theatric<br />

delights, as the performance wends its way through the garden and the story unfurls.<br />

Although the play is performed in English, original Chinese music from “The Peony<br />

Pavilion” lends authenticity.<br />

Also at The Huntington, in the Virginia Steele Scott Galleries of American Art,<br />

“Spirit and Essence, Line and Form: The Graphic Work of Henry Moore” is on display<br />

until Oct 1. This exhibit of the brilliant artist, widely considered by many to be “the<br />

most prominent British sculptor of the 20th century,” focuses instead on Moore’s<br />

legacy with regards to his drawings, print and graphic designs. Moore’s intricate<br />

approach to varying forms, shape and mass and their relationship to one another is<br />

what differentiates him from so many other equally prolific artists.<br />

Until Nov. 12, The Huntington presents “Sustainable Luxury: Morris & Co. Textiles<br />

and Wallpapers from The Huntington’s Art Collections.” A sumptuous feast for the<br />

eyes, this exhibition features a carefully curated collection of 18 drawings, textiles<br />

and wallpapers from William Morris, the undisputed leader of the British <strong>Arts</strong> &<br />

Crafts movement that began in the mid-to-late 18 th century, and his firm, Morris & Co.<br />

The company was responsible for a variety of seminal works in the <strong>Arts</strong> & Crafts style,<br />

and their handcrafted decorative objects were revered for their sustainability long<br />

before the word became a rallying cry for preservationists and a trending philosophy<br />

on environmental responsibility. The Morris collection will be on view until Jan. 7.<br />

The Norton Simon Museum presents “In Search of New Markets: Craft Traditions<br />

in Nineteenth-Century India.” This exhibit offers a fascinating glimpse into the<br />

world of 19th-century religious and cultural objects from South Asia, with a few<br />

never-before-seen artifacts. The exhibit aims to explore “the historical sources and<br />

practices that informed the production of ceramics and wooden furniture in colonial<br />

India.” Also on view at the Norton Simon is “Line & Color: The Nature of Ellsworth<br />

Kelly.” The exhibit, running until Oct. 29, showcases the cutting-edge art of painter,<br />

sculptor, printmaker and American in Paris Ellsworth Kelly. Kelly’s life and influences<br />

in Paris are chronicled in his abstract artwork, which are often his interpretations<br />

of objects, plants and organisms found in the natural world. As Kelly once said, “I<br />

did not want to ‘invent’ pictures, so my sources were in nature, which to me includes<br />

everything seen.”<br />

If you’re looking for a unique, one-of-a-kind museum experience, then the Museum<br />

of Neon Art in Glendale is a must-see for lovers of quirky Americana. Small but<br />

mighty, this museum focuses on our country’s history of, and fascination with, neon.<br />

Wonderful examples of brightly lit signage abound here, but be sure to call for hours<br />

of operation and up-to-date info on current exhibits.<br />

What Kidspace Children’s Museum does, it does very well. This muchlauded<br />

museum devoted to the cultivation and nurturing of a child’s<br />

imagination and passion for learning is nearing its 40th year in<br />

existence. Since 1979, Kidspace has had a hand in educating and<br />

shaping eager young minds with a bounty of exciting and fun<br />

exhibits and events, and this season is no exception. Their<br />

“Performance on the Frog” series is a popular hit with pintsized<br />

visitors, who are invited to “sing and dance with<br />

performers on our frog-shaped stage in the Stone Hollow<br />

Amphitheater.” Every month, the museum hosts a new<br />

performance in this enchanting series. The Pumpkin<br />

Festival is in its 24th year and a perennial hit<br />

with attendees at Kidspace. Guests can enjoy the<br />

museums fall and Halloween-themed festivities<br />

on Saturday, Oct. 27, and Sunday, Oct. 28.<br />

From sunup to sundown, Pasadena and its<br />

surrounding cities present a dizzying array of cerebral<br />

and hands-on activities for the entire family. Be sure to<br />

stop by and check at least one of them off your summer/fall<br />

recreation checklist. You won’t be disappointed. ■<br />

Steps Ahead<br />

PASADENA’S FALL CARD IS FULL OF FLAMENCO, SALASA, SWING,<br />

BALLET, MODERN, EXPERIMENTAL, EVEN VICTORIAN STYLES OF DANCE<br />

BY JANA J. MONJI<br />

Pasadena has plenty of opportunities this fall to turn dancing into romancing,<br />

even if that love is for an era or an author.<br />

Of course, one can just stay off their feet and watch others dance — from<br />

modern and ballet to experimental. Watching Ballet Hispánico (from Sept. 15 to<br />

Oct. 15), Ballet Folklorico de México or actually doing some flamenco dancing is a<br />

wonderful way to celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month. And, of course, what<br />

holiday season would be complete without “The Nutcracker”?<br />

The annual Victorian Grand Ball on Nov. 24 at the Pasadena Masonic Temple<br />

celebrates 30 years of bringing back the quaint customs and dances of Queen<br />

Victoria’s long reign and giving Pasadenans an opportunity to dress up in a number<br />

of Victorian styles. Worried about your two-left feet? Many of the dances just<br />

require one to walk forward and backward, bow and turn. If you’re a guy, you’ll be<br />

astoundingly popular.<br />

This year will be a masked fancy dress ball. But the masks do come off for<br />

dancing, so it really is all about making a grand entrance. You don’t have to come in<br />

costume, but you must be able to dance (at arm’s length) in what you wear.<br />

Another chance to make a grand entrance is at the Lineage Gala on Sept. 29,<br />

which includes a silent auction, food catered by Alchemy Kitchen and a special<br />

performance by the Lineage Dance Company. Lineage is on the move, and is<br />

temporarily housed at First United Methodist Church at 500 E. Colorado Blvd.,<br />

Pasadena.<br />

At the Music Center, dance courts science in British choreographer/director<br />

Wayne McGregor’s new piece, “Autobiography.” Performed by Company Wayne<br />

McGregor, the piece consists of 23 choreographic portraits based on the<br />

sequencing of McGregor’s own genome. Each performance (scored by Jlin,<br />

aka Jerrilynn Patton) will be determined by a computer algorithm. Is that<br />

geeky enough? (Oct. 5-7)<br />

For more mind-melding in dance, Diavolo returns to the Music<br />

Center after making national waves by being in the top 10 for<br />

“America’s Got Talent,” and artistic director Jacques Heim<br />

mixes modern dance, acrobatics and gymnastics for his<br />

“Architecture in Motion.” The program includes Diavolo’s<br />

signature work “Trajectoire” and the California<br />

premiere of “Voyage.”<br />

At the Alex Theatre, Los Angeles Ballet<br />

(LAB) presents “Modern Moves,” a bill of three<br />

choreographic interpretations from master<br />

choreographers Aszure Barton (“Les Chambres<br />

des Jacques,” LAB premiere), Alejandro<br />

Cerrudo (“Lickety Split,” LAB premiere) and<br />

George Balanchine (“Western Symphony”) that<br />

honor Americana, folk music and the Old West (7:30<br />

p.m. Oct. 6).<br />

For something intimate and new, head to REDCAT.<br />

David Roussève’s “Halfway to Dawn” explores the life of<br />

composer and arranger Billy “Sweet Pea” Strayhorn, a gay man<br />

and social activist in Harlem who co-wrote and arranged some of<br />

Duke Ellington’s hits (Oct. 4-7). And don’t forget the Sharon Disney<br />

Lund School of Dance at Cal<strong>Arts</strong> evening of repertory remounted,<br />

reimagined and re-contextualized at REDCAT. (Dec. 7-8).<br />

A great way to celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month is to make<br />

reservations for two performances at the Luckman Fine <strong>Arts</strong> Complex at Cal<br />

State LA: Ballet Hispánico (Sept. 29, 8 p.m.) and Ballet Folklorico de México<br />

de Amalia Hernandez (Oct. 19-21). Ballet Hispánico will showcase their all-<br />

Latina choreographers program: Annabelle Lopez Ochoa’s Línea Recta, Michelle<br />

Manzanales’ Con Brazos Abiertos, and Tania Pérez-Salas’ Catorce Dieciséis. Ballet<br />

36 PASADENA WEEKLY | 08.30.18<br />

Folklorico combines the music, dance and dress of Mexican folklore<br />

from pre-Columbian civilizations through the modern era.<br />

Another way to celebrate the occasion is to go out and get on stage. The Arte<br />

Flamenco Dance Theatre in Alhambra is hosting a Flamenco Intensive with<br />

Cristobal Reyes (Oct. 15-19).<br />

The Granada LA presents The Adolfo Indacochea Experience with mambo, cha<br />

cha and salsa workshops and nightclub and shows for one weekend (Sept. 14-15).<br />

For those looking for a more regular place to move to the groove, the Masonic<br />

Temple hosts weekly swing and blues dances hosted by Lindygroove (LindyGroove.<br />

com) every Thursday.<br />

The Pasadena Ballroom Dance Association has been bringing swing to Pasadena for 35<br />

years, so if you’re looking for some sweaty G-rated fun on Saturday nights, head on over to<br />

Grace Hall (behind the church).<br />

If swing is too modern for your sensibilities, there’s really old school English dance<br />

in two places. Twice a month (second and fourth Fridays) the Monrovia English Country<br />

Dance meets at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church. Fans of Jane Austen can search for their Darcy<br />

on the third Sunday of the month when the Valley Area English Regency Society (VAERS)<br />

hosts English Regency Dancing at the Reformation Lutheran Church Fellowship Hall.<br />

And finally, what would Christmas be without “The Nutcracker”? The Music Center<br />

brings out “George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker” for the holiday season (Nov. 30 through<br />

Dec. 2) at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. The Los Angeles Ballet also presents “The<br />

Nutcracker” on Dec. 1-2 at the Alex Theatre in Glendale. ■<br />

CHICAGO FOUNDER DANNY SERAPHINE BRINGS THE BAND’S FASTER-PACED CLASSICS<br />

TO LIFE WITH HIS CURRENT BAND CTA ON FRIDAY AT THE ROSE<br />

BY CARL KOZLOWSKI<br />

As the original founding member and drummer for<br />

the legendary rock band Chicago, Danny Seraphine<br />

thought he was on top of the world in 1990. The<br />

band had prospered for nearly 25 years at that point,<br />

with its horn-driven music surviving the musical<br />

wasteland years of the disco revolution to wind up<br />

releasing some of its biggest albums ever throughout<br />

the 1980s.<br />

Yet in May of that year, Seraphine was faced with<br />

the shocking news that he had been voted out of the<br />

band that had been the center of his existence since<br />

it began in 1967. The decision came about largely<br />

because the band fell victim to the fact that it had to<br />

drastically change its sound in order to maintain its<br />

success.<br />

“Even with all of our success, we had bombed out<br />

on ‘Chicago 18’ with only one hit song because we<br />

were told radio didn’t want to play horns anymore,”<br />

Seraphine recalls. “So I knew that to survive we<br />

had to change our sound and I brought in [megasuccessful<br />

songwriter] Diane Warren to write singles<br />

for the next album.<br />

“It was the first time we had ever had an outside<br />

songwriter write our singles, and she didn’t include<br />

any horn parts on her songs, so the guys in the<br />

horn section were upset that they felt left out,” he<br />

continues. “All four of her songs became Top 10 hits,<br />

and ‘Look Away’ was the No. 1 song of that year, but<br />

they still were so upset over my insistence that they<br />

kicked me out.”<br />

That abrupt career change also had a negative<br />

effect on Seraphine’s personal life, as his sudden constant<br />

presence at home after years of touring wound<br />

up exposing rifts in his marriage. He retreated to the<br />

mountains of Colorado and took 16 years off from the<br />

music business, returning in 2006 with fellow former<br />

Chicago bandmate Bill Champlin as the leaders of<br />

CTA, which performs at 9 p.m. Friday at The Rose<br />

nightclub in Pasadena.<br />

The choice of CTA for a band name was a tribute<br />

to the earliest days of Chicago, which released its first<br />

two albums under the name Chicago Transit Authority.<br />

While the band plays tunes from throughout the<br />

various eras of Seraphine’s time with Chicago, he<br />

takes pride in the fact that it pays particular attention<br />

to the faster-paced tunes of Chicago’s earliest hitmaking<br />

days, before singer Peter Cetera teamed with<br />

producer David Foster to shift the band’s focus to<br />

sappy ballads in the 1980s.<br />

“I played on all the original stuff and I love those<br />

tunes because I helped identify them and they helped<br />

make me,” explains Seraphine. “CTA does a great job<br />

of changing it up just enough to be fresh and new.<br />

Some we do verbatim, and the horn parts are pretty<br />

much like the record.<br />

“In our live show we cover Chicago really, really<br />

well, and we fill a void in the market because Chicago<br />

focuses on its ’80s hits mainly while we bring back<br />

the jazz rock end of it,” he continues. “When you go<br />

see CTA, it’s like seeing Chicago on steroids. The<br />

Chicago songbook is really enduring, it’s timeless<br />

because it’s such great music based on great musicianship,<br />

craftsmanship and the pride we put into all<br />

19 albums. We bring a lot of power to those songs.” n<br />

CTA performs at 9 p.m. Friday at the Rose, 245 E. Green St.,<br />

Pasadena. Tickets are $28 to $48. Call (888) 645-5006 or visit<br />

REIMAGING AN ARCHITECTURAL JEWEL OF<br />

PASADENA’S GOLDEN ERA<br />

BY CATHERINE BAUKNIGHT<br />

Cupola dome shines atop the tallest<br />

building in the land, warning new<br />

pilots of the day.<br />

Abeacon of the past reminiscent of the Italian<br />

Renaissance style of architecture that was<br />

popular nearly a century ago, the former First<br />

Trust Bank Building on the corner of Colorado<br />

Boulevard and Madison Avenue is among<br />

a number of architectural jewels built in<br />

Pasadena throughout the 1920s.<br />

This was Pasadena’s Golden Age of<br />

architecture, a time during which such<br />

structures as City Hall, the city’s<br />

Central Library, the Rose Bowl,<br />

and the old Pasadena Star-News<br />

building were built. And, like<br />

those, First Trust (now Bank of<br />

the West) has stood the test of time,<br />

looking much as it did when it first<br />

opened in 1927.<br />

However, for all its gold-colored bronze,<br />

inlaid marble floors, travertine walls and gilt<br />

coffered ceiling, all designed to have a welcoming<br />

effect on its millionaire customers, perhaps the<br />

most striking element of the building is the artwork<br />

by muralist Alson Clark hanging inside depicting<br />

California’s top four industries at the time.<br />

One of Clark’s murals depicts shipping at San Pedro<br />

harbor. In another, a family works in an orchard. There is<br />

also a mural of oil field workers, and, of course, a scene from the<br />

production of a film.<br />

Entering this time capsule is a journey back to when customers were<br />

enticed to participate in commerce and<br />

trade for the connection and improvement<br />

of the community. Thus, a movement to<br />

connect humanity and free thought for a better<br />

lifestyle was in motion through the appreciation<br />

of the arts. Pasadena was voted the best city to<br />

live in America in 1939, according to the Pasadena<br />

Community Book, 1943, article by Editor in Chief William<br />

L. Blair.<br />

The structure, which is listed on the National Register<br />

of Historic Places, was built not only for the comfort of its<br />

wealthy patrons but to also withstand earthquakes. According to<br />

the journal Bungalow Reader, architects Cyril Bennett and Fitch<br />

Haskell retained Caltech professor R.R. Martel to devise the first steel<br />

beam structural system that would work with the concrete walls as reinforcement which<br />

successfully prevents earthquake damage for tall buildings and became a standard of the<br />

times.<br />

The eight-story structure is also adorned with a steel and glass cupola, a shining beacon<br />

then and today, designed for style and a reminder to new aviators to take heed while soaring<br />

through the sky above the city and mountains.<br />

The original detailed ceiling painted in blue, gold and red, the walnut teller’s cages and<br />

bronze and glass screens speak to the work integrity of the era.<br />

Etched above the rear door of the lobby describes the proclamation for the Golden Era,<br />

from Deuteronomy:<br />

A good land. A land of wheat and barley and vines and fig trees and pomegranates. A<br />

land of olive trees and honey.<br />

An appreciation of the art history and architecture of Pasadena, built on principle,<br />

community ethics and prosperity for a lifestyle celebrating human spirit, will sustain our<br />

future as a leading city in America built by our forefathers on this good land. ■<br />

Boring ‘Finale’<br />

As summer winds down and the supply of mega-budget<br />

blockbusters trickles out, Hollywood often releases some of<br />

its most blasé duds of the year over the Labor Day weekend<br />

each year. This weekend’s new release “Operation Finale” offers<br />

a mix of good and bad qualities by presenting a strongly acted<br />

and good-looking historical thriller that unfortunately runs out of<br />

thills long before its ending.<br />

Recounting the tale of how a team of undercover Israeli Jewish<br />

operatives teamed up in 1960 to capture and extract the vile Nazi<br />

leader Adolf Eichmann from his new life-in-disguise in Argentina, “Finale”<br />

stars Oscar-winning actor Ben Kingsley as the deceptively stoic<br />

“architect of the Final Solution.” Leading the charge against him are<br />

Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron in the newest “Star Wars” movies) as Peter<br />

Malkin, who we learn in a series of devastatingly effective flashbacks<br />

lost his wife and children to heartless Nazi slaughter.<br />

Isaac has been receiving intel on the search for Eichamann from<br />

anti-Nazi compatriots tracking Eichmann and other former Nazis in<br />

Argentina, where many of the evil regime fled after the war. A young<br />

woman named Sylvia (Haley Lu Richardson) flirts her way into a<br />

couple of dates with a handsome boy named Klaus Eichmann (Joe<br />

Alwyn) , who claims his father died back in Germany and he’s just<br />

being cared for by Adolf as a family friend in his new persona.<br />

When Klaus stupidly decides taking Sylvia to a secret Nazi meeting<br />

would make for a great date night, she turns out to be a spy and passes<br />

word through her own father to the Israeli Mossad special forces<br />

unit. The Mossad leaders decide that it would be more worthwhile<br />

to have Adolf testify and spell out the Nazi atrocities on worldwide<br />

television rather than merely assassinate him, so Malkin is enlisted to<br />

lead the mission.<br />

For the first half of the film, director Chris Weitz (“American<br />

Pie,” “A Better Life”) keeps things moving with some real zip and<br />

Oscar Isaac and Nick Kroll in Operation Finale<br />

‘OPERATION FINALE’ OFFERS THRILLS IN RECOUNTING THE TALE OF NAZI ADOLF<br />

EICHMANN’S CAPTURE BUT ENDS BADLY — FOR EICHMANN AND AUDIENCES<br />

pizzazz, aided greatly by a bouncy and inventive score by Alexandre<br />

Desplat. Yet after cranking up the tension throughout the first hour,<br />

once Adolf Eichmann is captured, the film completely runs out of<br />

steam.<br />

The reason is that the fearless team finds that the Nazi-friendly<br />

Argentine government has gotten wind of their plot and ensured that<br />

the next safe flight out of the country won’t be available for ten days.<br />

Thus begins the need for them all to hide out with Eichmann, and<br />

engage in a subtle battle of manipulation as they try to make him sign<br />

a paper agreeing to leave the country with them and he tries to play on<br />

Melvin’s sympathies due to the fact that despite being a monster, he’s<br />

a devoted family man.<br />

This might still sound intriguing, but the unfortunate fact is that<br />

the hideout scenes are dramatically inert to a stunning degree. When<br />

the mood-lifting high point of the second hour is a comical scene of<br />

the team watching Eichmann taking a dump as an example of not letting<br />

him out of their sight, and their wincing reactions to the farts he’s<br />

producing, something has gone off the rails.<br />

On the other hand, there are moments scattered throughout –<br />

including the second half— that are unusually thoughtful for a Hollywood<br />

summer release. Melvin’s flashbacks slowly acquire a devastating<br />

impact, while there is also a strong scene in which he provides<br />

extra care and compassion for the withering Eichmann in which he<br />

might also be getting played psychologically.<br />

World War II history buffs may like this more than I did, as the<br />

filmmakers and cast clearly had noble intentions. But considering<br />

how utterly slow and anticlimactic the film becomes in its final hour,<br />

it’s impossible for me to justify saying the film is worth paying today’s<br />

ticket prices. I was praying for the finale of “Operation Finale” long<br />

before it was over, and chances are so will you. n<br />

CAPSULE REVIEWS<br />

BY CARL KOZLOWSKI<br />

SEARCHING<br />

Stars: John Cho, Debra Messing<br />

Length: 102 minutes<br />

Directed by: Aneesh Chaganty<br />

Rating: PG13<br />

The Asian-American wave of multiplex success<br />

continues with this film starring Jon Cho as a<br />

father desperately searching for his teen daughter,<br />

who's been living a secret life online. The film is<br />

told completely through technology such as Twitter,<br />

Facebook, webcams and the like, making the riveting<br />

story even more compelling. Grade: A<br />

CRAZY RICH ASIANS<br />

Stars: Constance Wu, Henry Golding, Michelle Yeoh<br />

Length: 120 minutes<br />

Directed by: Jon M. Chu<br />

Rating: PG13<br />

The romantic comedy that's kicking open the doors<br />

of Hollywood for Asian-American talent, "Asians" is<br />

possibly the best romantic comedy of the century so<br />

far. The story of an American woman who was raised<br />

poor falling for the scion of a mega-rich Singapore<br />

dynasty and the socioeconomic clashes that ensue<br />

is both hilarious and touching and lavish to behold.<br />

Grade: A<br />

Directed by: Spike Lee<br />

Rating: R<br />

Spike Lee's huge comeback marks what might be his<br />

best and most commercial film ever: an audaciously<br />

funny and exciting true-life story about an African-<br />

American cop in Colorado Springs who teams<br />

with a Jewish policeman to infiltrate and destroy a<br />

dangerous Ku Klux Klan chapter. One of the year's<br />

best. Grade: A<br />

THE MEG<br />

Stars: Jason Statham, Bingbing Li, Rainn Wilson<br />

Length: 113 minutes<br />

Directed by: Jon Turteltaub<br />

Rating: PG13<br />

This utterly ridiculous yet undeniably funny and<br />

exciting thriller follows a team of scientists who<br />

try to track down and destroy a 90-foot-long<br />

prehistoric shark before it can massacre thousands<br />

of beachgoers. This is a fun sendup-homage to<br />

"Jaws" and is one of the funnest surprises of summer.<br />

Grade: A<br />

EIGHTH GRADE<br />

Stars: Elsie Fisher, Josh Hamilton<br />

Length: 93 minutes<br />

Directed by: Bo Burnham<br />

Rating: R<br />

This intensely intimate dramedy sees life from the<br />

eyes and mind of an awkward girl enduring the<br />

travails of her last week in eighth grade. Elsie Fisher<br />

pulls off a performance for the ages and deserves an<br />

Oscar nomination as a girl fending off creepy boys,<br />

learning to be more loving to her single dad, and<br />

standing up for herself. Writer-director Bo Burnham<br />

has accomplished a masterpiece in his debut effort.<br />

Grade: A<br />

MISSION IMPOSSIBLE:<br />

FALLOUT<br />

Stars: Tom Cruise, Simon Pegg, Michelle Monaghan<br />

Length: 147 minutes<br />

Directed by: Christopher McQuarrie<br />

Rating: PG-13<br />

Tom Cruise raises the bar on action movies by miles,<br />

in a film that's packed with non-stop action and in<br />

which he HALO skydives, flies a helicopter on a chase<br />

through mountain passes, speeds a motorcycle<br />

through the streets of Paris and much more while<br />

trying to keep plutonium out of the hands of a ruthless<br />

band of terrorists. Defying a world in which every<br />

action movie is rooted in CGI, this film's old-school<br />

dazzling showmanship must be seen on as big a<br />

screen as possible. Grade: A<br />

TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are<br />

considering bidding on this property<br />

lien, you should understand that<br />

there are risks involved in bidding at<br />

a trustee auction. You will be bidding<br />

on a lien, not on the property itself.<br />

Placing the highest bid at a trustee<br />

auction does not automatically entitle<br />

you to free and clear ownership of the<br />

property. You should also be aware<br />

that the lien being auctioned off may<br />

be a junior lien. If you are the highest<br />

bidder at the auction, you are or may<br />

be responsible for paying off all liens<br />

senior to the lien being auctioned<br />

off, before you can receive clear title<br />

to the property. You are encouraged<br />

to investigate the existence, priority,<br />

and size of outstanding liens that may<br />

exist on this property by contacting<br />

the county recorder’s offi ce or<br />

a title insurance company, either of<br />

which may charge you a fee for this<br />

information. If you consult either<br />

of these resources, you should be<br />

aware that the same lender may hold<br />

more than one mortgage or deed of<br />

trust on the property. NOTICE TO<br />

PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date<br />

shown on this notice of sale may be<br />

postponed one or more times by the<br />

mortgagee, benefi ciary, trustee, or<br />

a court, pursuant to Section 2924g<br />

of the California Civil Code. The<br />

law requires that information about<br />

trustee sale postponements be made<br />

available to you and to the public, as<br />

a courtesy to those not present at the<br />

sale. If you wish to learn whether your<br />

sale date has been postponed, and, if<br />

applicable, the rescheduled time and<br />

date for the sale of this property, you<br />

may call 916-939-0772 for information<br />

regarding the trustee’s sale or<br />

by the Trustee: CA-17-777385-CL.<br />

Information about postponements<br />

that are very short in duration or that<br />

occur close in time to the scheduled<br />

sale may not immediately be refl ected<br />

in the telephone information or on<br />

the Internet Web site. The best way<br />

to verify postponement information<br />

is to attend the scheduled sale. The<br />

undersigned Trustee disclaims any<br />

liability for any incorrectness of the<br />

property address or other common<br />

designation, if any, shown herein. If<br />

any reason, including if the Trustee is<br />

unable to convey title, the Purchaser<br />

at the sale shall be entitled only to<br />

a return of the monies paid to the<br />

Trustee. This shall be the Purchaser’s<br />

sole and exclusive remedy. The purchaser<br />

shall have no further recourse<br />

against the Trustor, the Trustee, the<br />

Benefi ciary, the Benefi ciary’s Agent,<br />

or the Benefi ciary’s Attorney. If you<br />

have previously been discharged<br />
