HEALTHY STUDENTS/BETTER LEARNERS

On May 8, United Teachers of Pasadena

recognized PUSD’s school nurses

by celebrating National School Nurse

Day as a way to foster a better understanding

of the role of school nurses in

the educational setting.

The theme this year was “School

Nurses: Making the Grade on School

Health.”

Since 1972, National School Nurse

Day has been set aside to recognize

school nurses. National School Nurse

Day was established to foster a better

understanding of the role of school nurses in the educational

setting.

Today’s children face more chronic illnesses (e.g. asthma, diabetes,

food allergies, mental health, etc.) than ever before, and

school nurses take their role as a licensed, professional school

nurse very seriously. School nurses in PUSD take on a variety

of roles every day. For many children, they are the only health

professional they may have access to, except in emergencies.

This becomes even more important as the prevalence of chronic

social, emotional and other health problems keep increasing.

Did you know that there are only 10 school nurses across

the district? That means other school professionals and school

administrators, with no medical training, must sometimes step

in and provide some level of care.

Healthier students are better learners. Evidence-based

research in fields ranging from neuroscience and child development

to epidemiology and public health support this argument.

Our elected officials must invest in programs and services that

seek to improve the health and well-being outcomes of all children.

As the superintendent and the school board make funding

decisions for next school year, I hope their budget reflects the

right priorities — ensuring our

children have a successful,

productive and healthy future.

UNITED TEACHERS OF PASADENA

HAUNTING MEMORIES

Forty nine years ago on

May 4, 1970 four students were

gunned down on the commons

of Kent State University. I was

a student on campus that day, a

young sophomore who wanted

nothing more than to get my

degree. But suddenly I found

myself caught in the maelstrom

which became known

as the Kent State Massacre.

Those four students — Allison

Krause, Jeffrey Miller, Sandra

Lee Scheuer and William Knox

Schroeder — were not murdered

at the hands of an angry,

hate- filled, disgruntled student

or a veteran suffering from

PTSD, but at the hands of Ohio

National Guardsmen, some

who weren’t much older than

the students who were gunned

down.

To this day I thank God that

my life was spared. An unseen

hand had guided me to my

music class in the speech and

hearing building. But make no

mistake: I was forever emotionally

scarred by the tragedy.

In the months that followed I

was plagued by anxiety, guilt,

nightmares and agoraphobia. A

budding civil rights activist at

the time, I wanted to speak out

but was silenced by my parents

who feared retaliation from

bigots in my hometown who

looked upon the murdered students

as instigators and hippies

who deserved what they got.

Looking back at the chaos

that ensued, I wonder if Kent

State was a bad omen, a portent

of future shootings that

occur so routinely today in

churches, synagogues, schools

and workplaces. Was some

door to Hades unlocked by that

senseless shooting?

Today I still carry wounds

from that massacre on the

commons of Kent State. Every

time I hear of another mass

shooting, memories are triggered

and I find myself thrust

back in time — a young student

whose innocence was forever

lost.

Young people today who

have witnessed a mass shooting

— students at Columbine,

Sandy Hook, Parkvale, University

of North Carolina, and

now STEM School Highlands

Ranch — will have to figure

out how to navigate through

their trauma and heal their

psychological wounds. How do

they cope with the reckoning

that they live in a dangerous

world and their parents, families,

teachers and the police

cannot protect them? Some

will get counseling. They will

go to memorial services. They

will send cards and flowers to

the injured. But they will live

with their scars forever.

I’ve spent a lifetime trying

to come to terms with the

tragedy at Kent State. Every

time an innocent life is gunned

down in the streets of America,

I am reminded that our

country is at war with itself.

Our children are sacrificial

lambs in our preoccupation

with guns. Each one of us has

to figure out how to heal from

our wounds. Prayer and trust

in a higher power helps, but

ultimately our healing will

depend on what we do to bring

about a world of peace.

POLITICAL INSECURITY

GOP LAWMAKERS ARE WORKING HARD TO CUT SOCIAL SECURITY

The Social Security Act guarantees a monthly monetary benefit to eligible

retirees and breadwinners, deceased spouses, people with disabilities, and

others. Today, the Social Security program provides monthly benefits to more

than 50 million people.

Briefly, the nation’s single-payer health insurance program is Medicare, for people

65 and older; the Social Security and Medicare programs are administered by the

federal government. Medicare allows enrollment in private companies. According to

a 2018 Reuter’s News Service survey, 70 percent of Americans approve of Medicare-

For-All.

The complexities of both programs are many, and cannot be covered in this

article alone. But understand this: any cuts affecting earned benefits undermine

and endanger the general welfare of the nation because they would lead to a more

impoverished and sicker population by putting millions of Americans at greater risk.

Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and some partisan backers

want deeper cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid after implementing

a $1.5 trillion tax cut for the wealthy and approving a $675 billion budget for the

Department of Defense. The losses incurred by these expenditures have created a

record high federal deficit, which has reportedly increased by 77 percent since 2015

under McConnell’s watch. Social Security did not create this problem; McConnell

and his cohorts did.

Congressman Tim Ryan, a Democrat from Ohio, reminds us, “When Republicans

in Congress said their tax cuts to wealthy multinational corporations would pay

for themselves, they lied,” he wrote on Twitter. “Now, they’re going to try to come

for hardworking people to foot the bill by slashing Medicare, Medicaid and Social

Security. We can’t let them.”

Almost 90 percent of families with low incomes depend on Social Security

benefits, while families with high incomes receive about 10 percent of their money

from the fund, according to investmentnews.com.

It is estimated that 30 million Americans have no health insurance at all, but even

those who do are at the mercy of insurance company approval.

The number one cause of bankruptcy in America is medical costs. More people

would die with proposed Medicare and Medicaid cuts. The average disabled worker

receives a mere monthly payout of $1,197, hardly enough to rent a one-bedroom

apartment in California, yet Republican US Sen. Marco Rubio touts, “The driver of

our debt is the structure of Social Security and Medicare for future beneficiaries,”

according to The New York Times. Max Richtman, president and CEO of the

National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare, states the GOP

position is underlying problem. Here are a few examples of what they propose:

• Cutting Social Security’s Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA)

• Raising the Medicare eligibility age to 67

• Increasing the Social Security retirement age

Democrats support Social Security ACT 2100, recently introduced in the House

by Ways and Means Subcommittee member Representative John B. Larson, the

bill’s principal author and a Democrat from Connecticut. It would be the first major

expansion since 1972. Here are some examples of what the bill contains:

• Across-the-board increases equal to about 2 percent of the average Social

Security benefit

• No tax on earnings from $132,900 to $400,000

• “Fixes” Social Security for 75 years, but keeps the system permanently solvent

• Increases payroll taxes on workers

• Cuts federal income tax for about 12 million middle-income people but raises

other taxes

Richtman states, “Social Security has a $2.89 trillion surplus and is able to pay

full benefits through 2034. One reason behind the funding gap projected to begin

in 2034 is that millionaires are exempt from paying their fair share into Social

Security.”

Eliminating the Payroll Tax Cap would require millionaires to contribute the

same percentage of their income as everyone else and would go a long way to shore

up Social Security’s long-term finances.

When you vote, remember to protect your earned benefits and the Social Security

system. You will be voting in your own best interest now and for future generations.

Get the word out today. ■

COUNCIL AWARDS SAN FRAN FIRM A HALF-MILLION DOLLARS TO

DESIGN SUICIDE BARRIER ON COLORADO STREET BRIDGE

BY ANDRÉ COLEMAN

The Pasadena City Council unanimously agreed on Monday to

enter into a contract for “suicide mitigation enhancements”

on the Colorado Street Bridge.

According to a staff report, the San Francisco-based

architectural firm Donald McDonald will design a vertical barrier

on the iconic bridge for under $550,000.

“Donald MacDonaId, founding principal architect of the firm

has worked on several well-known bridges that implemented

mitigation efforts such as the San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge,

Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge in Charleston, (South Carolina), and

Ironworkers Memorial Bridge in Vancouver, (British Columbia),”

according to the staff report.

Members of the firm came before the council’s Public Safety

Committee in April. At that meeting, PSC members instructed

staff to streamline the project’s design and scope of work. Local

officials have been searching for ways to prevent jumpers while

preserving the historic bridge’s treasured aesthetics.

The project presented to the council on Monday, May 20, costs

$200,000 less than the original projection and cuts 10 months off

the projected timeline for building a suicide deterrent system.

Time to Act

More than 150 people have jumped from the 106-year-old

bridge since the Great Depression, according to city officials,

with more than 30 of those deaths reported since 2006. Most

of those jumps occurred from the alcoves along the bridge’s

walkways, where access over the existing metal railings is easier.

In April, a passerby found the body of a man beneath the

bridge. His shoes were located on top of the structure. So far, he

is the only known jumper this year.

Three people jumped from the bridge in 2018, and eight people

fell to their deaths in 2017.

Later that year, temporary suicide-prevention fencing was

placed in the bridge’s alcoves. In September 2018, the situation

OFFICER-INVOLVED

SHOOTING

CHIEF TO RELEASE CAMERA

IMAGES OF INCIDENT THAT

LEFT ONE MAN DEAD

Pasadena Police Chief John Perez told the Pasadena

Weekly he hopes to quickly release bodyworn

camera footage of an officer-involved

shooting last Friday that left one man dead.

The incident began shortly after 6:30 p.m.

after police responded to calls of a man with a

gun on Glen Avenue near Howard Street. When

police arrived, Daniel Warren, 36, yelled at the

officers and pointed a rifle at them.

Police opened fire and Warren retreated

behind a house where he was later found dead

from a gunshot wound. Law enforcement officials

were at first unsure if Warren was killed

by police gunfire or committed suicide.

On Monday, coroner officials determined

Warren was fatally shot by police.

Investigators recovered a rifle with a large

capacity drum style magazine and a handgun

nearby. According to sheriff’s deputies, Warren

fired at least one round before retreating.

“The body-worn camera footage will go

out to the public at some point,” said Perez.

“But there is a process to that. I hope to get it

out soon, and at some point we will release the

names of the officers that were at the scene.”

Warren was arrested on March 23 after

holding officers at bay for more than two hours

in the city’s Playhouse District when he refused

to come out of his car.In that incident, police

were called to Oak Knoll Avenue at East Colorado

Boulevard at 10:09 a.m. after a caller reported

a man littered and urinated on the property,

according to Pasadena Now.

After officers arrived they found Warren

and a woman sitting in a car inside the parking

structure at an apartment complex.

Things intensified after police discovered

there was a warrant for Warren’s arrest for an

assault charge. An armored vehicle was called

to the scene, and Warren was taken into custody

without incident.

He was scheduled to appear in court this

Thursday, May 23, on assault by means likely to

produce great bodily injury and battery causing

serious bodily injury, according to court records.

Warren was arrested again by Pasadena

police on May 9 on suspicion of committing

battery on a peace officer. He was scheduled to

be arraigned in that case on June 3.

“I am very supportive of the officers and the

difficult decision they had to make,” said Perez.

“I am in support of them and I hope the community

is supportive of us going forward.”

‘MORE MUST BE DONE’

TRAINERS FORCED TO PUT DOWN

TWO MORE HORSES AT SANTA ANITA,

BRINGING THE TOTAL TO 25

BY ANDRÉ COLEMAN

Despite implementation of several new safety measures,

two more horses suffered injuries at Santa Anita

Park racetrack and were euthanized, one on Friday, the

other on Monday.

On Sunday Spectacular Music suffered an injury to his pelvis during his

debut event at the track and was euthanized the following day.

On Friday, Commander Coli was euthanized shortly after he suffered a

shoulder injury during training, according to the Los Angeles Times. The horse’s

trainer was asked to vacate the stalls after the incident. No official reason was

given for the request by track officials.

Since Dec. 26, 25 horses have been euthanized following injuries suffered

at the track. The track closed after the 21st horse died in March and put new

safety protocols in place, including banning race day medication, increasing

transparency of veterinary records, further regulating approval for workouts,

and increasing reviews of the track’s surface.

“Santa Anita’s new rules have slowed the bloodbath, and now the track is

banning trainers whose actions lead to horses’ deaths — including the trainer

for Commander Coil, who died on Friday,” said PETA Senior Vice President

Kathy Guillermo. “But two dead horses in three days proves that more must be

done to end the training and veterinary practices that lead to broken bones.”

The track had gone through almost 7,000 timed workouts and race starts

without a problem before the latest incidents, according to the Times.

Some experts believe the injuries have been caused by an extra hard track

created by track officials in response to this year’s above average rainfall.

After every rainstorm, officials seal the track by tightly packing dirt to prevent

the rain from oversaturating the running area, according to NBC News. But

some experts believe the process makes the track too hard and unforgiving for

animals that weigh more than a half-ton and run on spindly ankles.

The area experienced light rain both Saturday and Sunday, but it was not

immediately known what impact that had on the track.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney opened an investigation into 22 of

the deaths last month. n

THE FINAL WORD

SUPREME COURT REFUSES TO

HEAR CASE ON WHAT ARE NOW

NORTON SIMON’S “ADAM” AND “EVE”

PAINTINGS

BY ANDRÉ COLEMAN

Norton Simon Museum will retain two multimilliondollar

paintings lost to Nazis during World War II now

Marei Von Saher

that the US Supreme Court has declined to consider a

lower court ruling allowing the Pasadena museum to keep the classic art.

Jewish art collector Jacques Goudstikker was forced to sell his 1,200-

piece collection — including “Adam” and “Eve” by Lucas Cranach the Elder in

1530 — to the Germans at heavily reduced prices in 1940 before fleeing to the

Netherlands after the Nazis invaded.

“We are pleased that the US Supreme Court denied plaintiff’s petition

for review and finally put an end to this lawsuit,” said museum officials in a

statement. “The unanimous decision of the Ninth Circuit is now final, confirming

that the Norton Simon Art Foundation has proper title to these paintings. We

look forward to continuing to display them to the public, as we have for nearly

50 years.’’

Goudstikker’s heir Marei Von Saher has waged a long court battle to get

the paintings back. In 2006, the Dutch courts awarded her restitution of 202

paintings, but not those two.

The Norton Simon Foundation has argued that the title to the works passed

out of Goudstikker’s family when the Dutch government restituted them in 1966

to George Stroganoff-Sherbatoff, an exiled Russian aristocrat who had laid

claim to them. Stroganoff-Sherbatoff in turn sold the paintings to the American

collector Norton Simon in 1971. The paintings have been appraised at around

$24 million.

In 2007, federal proceedings in the US began, but the plaintiffs were

hampered by a major stumbling block: Family members did not act in time to

get the artwork back.

The Ninth Circuit ruled against Von Saher in August. In the court’s opinion,

Judge M. Margaret McKeown wrote that in order for Von Saher to recover

the set of works the court would have to invalidate an official act of the Dutch

government which set a 1951 deadline for claimants to file for restoration of

rights to works recovered after World War II.

Ruling on the Dutch post-war restitution system “would require making

sensitive political judgments that would undermine international comity,” wrote

the judge. n

took on added urgency after police spent 13 hours

successfully talking a jumper down during Labor

Day weekend.

After that encounter, City Manager Steve

Mermell exercised his authority to make an

emergency purchase and spent $295,932 on fencing

to span both sides of the 1,400-foot-long bridge.

“We can’t wait for another year while we grind

our way through the approval process and funding

process. We need to do something,” Mermell said

at the time. “It’s an emergency and we need to

intervene right now.”

Dark History

In 1921, the then-eight-year-old bridge was

prominently featured in the Charlie Chaplin film

“The Kid.” In the movie, Chaplin’s famous Tramp

character successfully saves a young woman before

she could jump to her death from the bridge.

Soon after the film screened, people jumping

off the bridge became something of a common

occurrence. During the Great Depression, which

began in October 1929 after the stock market crash

devastated the nation’s economy and left millions

out of work, 79 people jumped from the bridge.

The Depression formally ended in 1939, and it

was during that period people began calling the

100-foot-tall structure “Suicide Bridge,” a grim

moniker scorned by city officials throughout the

decades.

Temporary fencing was first installed after 12

people jumped to their death in 2015 and 2016.

One of those occurred in late October 2015,

when police spent seven hours attempting to talk

40-year-old actor Sam Sarpong out of jumping.

Sarpong had gained fame as a model and appeared

in the TV shows “My So-Called Life,” “Veronica

Mars,” “Everybody Hates Chris” and “24.” Prior

to his death, he completed filming in an episode

of “American Crime Story: The People v. O.J.

Simpson.” But in spite of all the talking, he still

jumped.

Making an Impact

The increase in jumpers, coupled with concerns

for public safety after the city approved a Habitat

for Humanity housing project underneath a portion

of the bridge’s south side, forced officials to erect

10-foot tall, one-inch thick mesh fencing blocking

access to 20 alcoves on both sides of the historic

bridge. People had used the alcoves to climb off the

bridge and onto the ledge.

Local residents have called on the City Council

to reconsider placing a restroom and a playground

in the Desiderio Neighborhood Park, located

next to a nine-unit Habitat for Humanity housing

development of the same name that opened two

years ago a short distance from the base of the

bridge. Owners of the newly built homes fear that a

jumper could possibly hit and injure someone living

below.

The housing project and park occupies

the former Desiderio Army Reserve Center,

declared surplus property by the Army and

recommended for closure in 2005. After public

hearings, city officials decided to convert portions

of the property into affordable housing and a

neighborhood park.

“I think the fencing has definitely deterred

people,” said Pasadena Public Information Officer

Lisa Derderian. “We have had a few situations since

the fencing went up where first responders had

to talk people down from the bridge. It’s made an

impact, and the permanent barrier continues to do

so.”

After several public meetings, the Colorado

Street Bridge Task Force concluded that vertical

barriers and fencing at the ends are the only

deterrent measures that physically prevent suicide

attempts from occurring. The task force is made up

of preservationists, engineers and first responders.

Vertical barriers are also considered cost

efficient because of the one-time construction fee,

and require little ongoing costs.

According to the recommendation, barriers will

also lessen the strain on first responders.

Saving Lives

According to Dr. Jill Harkavy-Friedman, vice

president of research at the American Foundation

for Suicide Prevention, barriers are successful

deterrents.

“There are quite a few studies that show building

barriers can save considerable numbers of lives,

and people don’t just go to another location,”

Harkavy-Friedman said in an interview with the

USC School of Social Work.

According to Harkavy-Friedman, suicide rates

decline by 30 to 50 percent when the availability of

highly lethal and commonly used suicide methods

are restricted. And those people whose efforts are

hampered by a bridge barrier usually do not just

drive to another bridge.

“If you limit access, then the crisis will pass,”

Harkavy-Friedman said.

Most people who are considering suicide are

just trying to end the pain they feel in that moment.

Restricting access to lethal means give a person a

temporary reprieve that allows them to move out of

the crisis and allows them a chance to seek help as

their decision-making ability recovers.

Meanwhile, research has not shown a

correlation between merely posting suicideprevention

signs, as had been done previously, and

lower suicide rates. n

THE LIFE

OF REILLY

AS LUCK WOULD HAVE IT, JOHN C. REILLY FINDS THEATER GOLD AT THE PASADENA PLAYHOUSE FOR A MONTH-LONG RUN OF ‘GATHER’

BY CARL KOZLOWSKI

Ever since his breakthrough role as the soft-spoken and sensitive Officer

Jim Kurring 20 years ago in the 1999 classic film “Magnolia,” John C. Reilly

has managed to earn a soft spot in moviegoers’ hearts with dozens of

roles as lovable losers and everymen. He’s managed to do this with surprising

range as well, scoring an Oscar nomination for his turn as the cuckolded Amos

Hart in the musical “Chicago” and playing the fool with Will Ferrell in a trio of

outrageous comedies including the sublimely stupid “Step Brothers.”

The longtime Altadena resident, however, has always loved performing live

theater most, largely because of the immediacy and intimate connection it allows

between performers and their audiences. He will be spotlighting that passion

for a month onstage at the Pasadena Playhouse’s Carrie Hamilton Theatre

from Friday May 24 through June 22 with “Gather: Surprising Stories and Other

Mischief,” alongside a team of other veteran actors who come together to act

out a colorful array of stories for all ages.

05.23.19 | PASADENA WEEKLY 9


THE LIFE OF REILLY

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 9

“It’s a theater form called story theater, originally created by Paul Sills, who

started [legendary Chicago comedy theater] Second City,” explains Reilly. “The

actors tell the story as narrators at the same time they portray the characters.

So I and other actors will be doing narration, jump into dialogue and then back

to narration, as a group of people take the stories on.

“It’s really fun, because you create objects out of nothing, a lot like improv,”

Reilly continues. “It’s gone on to spawn so many types of theater, the sort of

theater that uses imagination more than technical effects. It’s a human-based

theater art.”

The show’s selections include Grimm’s Fairy Tales, classic old folk tales and

other family-friendly scenes — all of which are organized and edited by Reilly

with his longtime artistic collaborator Patrick Murphy, who was his first acting

teacher in college. The pair had been discussing teaming up for a story theater

project nearly ever since, and Reilly believes that it will prove to be a powerful

experience for audiences.

“The Playhouse was generous to give us this, because in this time of bad news

what else can we as human beings do but come together regardless of beliefs,

and tell stories to each other?” asks Reilly. “And we’ll sing some songs because

the stories are interspersed with us singing old songs you might remember.

You’ll have some soul nourishment, some humor and some old-fashioned theater

magic.

“It’s a really intimate space, with 99 seats, and we weave this kind of dream

and tell nine or 10 different stories,” he adds. “It’s really a show for young people

and old, age group 8 to 800. It’s family friendly because some stories are darker

than others, so we’re thinking of adding matinees to tone down the scary bits

even more for really little kids.”

Reilly credits Playhouse Artistic Director Danny Feldman with thinking

outside the box on “Gather,” building upon innovative programming that has

restored smash-hit status to the sometimes-struggling theater since taking over

from his longtime predecessor Sheldon Epps in 2017. Along with producing the

month-long run of shows, Reilly is discussing bringing an acting studies program

back to the theater, which used to count future greats such as Gene Hackman

and Dustin Hoffman among its students.

“The Playhouse is the State Theatre of California, a community theater that

brought people together in Pasadena,” says Reilly. “That’s why we called the

show ‘Gather,’ because it’s a community-based thing and we share some theater

magic. The opening night is my birthday so I can’t think of a better way to celebrate

getting older.”

A devout family man, Reilly has been married to his wife, independent film

producer Alison Dickey, since 1992 and has two children with her. He grew up in

a larger family in Chicago, the fifth of six children born to the owner of an industrial

linen supply company business, who was also named John.

He first took the stage at 8 years old, displaying a natural talent that enabled

him to train at the Goodman School of Drama before becoming a member of the

Steppenwolf Theatre, one of America’s most acclaimed dramatic institutions.

His time at the Steppenwolf included a Tony-nominated run on Broadway when

the troupe visited the Great White Way with the classic Sam Shepard play “True

West.”

Yet asking him for a favorite genre of acting he’s performed in, and Reilly is

sincerely challenged to decide.

“People come up to me every day who don’t say the comedies are their favorites,

but say ‘Chicago’ the musical or {the Martin Scorsese historical drama]

‘Gangs of New York,’” he says. “A lot of actors get pigeonholed by audiences

wanting them to do the same thing over and over again, but I’m lucky people

expected the unexpected from me: funny, sad, scary, sci-fi and everything in

between.

“The simple answer is I’m just lucky I guess,” he concludes. “People let me do

different things, so I change it up project to project to feed my soul. This project

is another example of that. A lot of people have seen my works over the years.

People come see me in films and can come and be in the same room as me and

share magical moments together. It’s maybe not the greatest career move but it’s

important to me to join me and feel better for a couple hours.” n

Theatre of the Pasadena Playhouse, 39 S. El Molino Ave., Pasadena. Tickets are $56. Call (626)

CILANTRO LIME 2.0 OFFERS A SO CAL

TAKE ON MEXICAN CLASSICS

BY EVELYN GARCIA / PHOTOS BY DANNY LIAO

If you have followed my columns you might have picked up

on my dislike of restaurants that place a higher value on the

photo-worthiness of a dish than its actual flavor. Plating

has always been a key component in the world of culinary arts,

but the rise of foodie bloggers has turned artful plating into

monstrous though colorful concoctions that draw views online

but do nothing for the palate.

When I walked into Cilantro Lime 2.0 in Glendale and

noticed an entire wall papered in a collage of Instagram photos,

my knee-jerk reaction was to run away in fear of experiencing

a dining fiasco. Since I had brought along my sister and her two

small, hungry children, I shook off my negative disposition and

gave it a shot, and I’m glad I did.

What makes Cilantro Lime 2.0 unique is the fact that their

menu runs the gamut of every style of Mexican food Southern

AS GOOD AS IT LOOKS

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 11

Californians have come to expect, and it doesn’t

just cater to the Instagram crowd. Traditional

plates like enchiladas ($11.99) and chili relleno

($11.99) have a home under “mom’s favorite dishes,”

all of which come with rice, beans and chips.

On the other side of the spectrum, they have

the “bloggers menu,” which I acknowledge is not

as over-the-top as it could be. Under that header

are options like “flaming hot Cheetos quesadilla”

($8.99), which is exactly what it sounds like: cheese

and hot Cheetos inside a tortilla that is cooked with

a halo of crispy cheese edges. You can add a protein

for an additional $2. Also cheese-heavy and on the

blogger menu are the “let’s go grub” tacos ($4 each),

with your choice of meat, pico de gallo and a crispy

cheese shell in place of a tortilla.

Cilantro Lime 2.0 has all the Cali-Mexican

classics, like asada fries ($12), with melted cheddar

cheese, carne asada, pico de gallo, sour cream,

their secret sauce, guacamole, cilantro, and salsa.

It is a behemoth. All the people in my group just

barely managed to take down the whole thing.

What makes Cilantro Lime 2.0’s asada fries special

is that they melt the cheddar onto the fries first,

which allows the cheese to distribute evenly. But

the fun-fry options do not end there. Elote lovers

rejoice Cilantro Lime 2.0 is home to the esquite

fries ($11.50) with the same cheese/fry base as the

asada fries, then topped with elote, mayonnaise,

cotija, and of course crumbles of hot Cheetos.

Traditionalists need not worry; an esquites cup is

available for $4.

Glendale's Cilantro Lime 2.0 opened in April and

is the second incarnation of a restaurant that has

gained a cult following at its smaller location in a

food court in downtown Los Angeles that opened

in 2015. While the DTLA location was just a small

walk-up space in a food court alongside other

vendors, the Glendale location is a standalone with

a full dining room — hence the “2.0” in the name.

The service at this location is fantastic. The crew is

helpful, courteous and they know what to suggest

so you cannot go wrong.

Cilantro Lime 2.0 owner and Glendale resident

Leo Matias said there are plans to bring more

options to the new location over the next few

months. He hopes to put more seafood dishes like

ceviche on the menu and is currently working on an

alcohol license, because what else would you want

to pair with asada fries than a beer? In my chat

with Matias, he revealed the existence of a secret

Instagram menu, with items like the cheese shell

burrito ($10.25); all the burrito fixings in a blanket

of crispy cheese.

In my haste at the counter, I was pointing at

pictures on the menu and adding them to my

order when one of those choices reminded me of a

cross between a sloppy Joe and a torta. It was the

pambazo ($10.50), a wet sandwich typically stuffed

with chorizo and potatoes, then coated in a red chili

enchilada sauce. The telera bread is softer than that

of the bolillo bread traditionally used on tortas, but

the sandwich is just soft, not soggy. Unbeknownst

to me, the Cilantro Lime 2.0 pambazo is served

with soyrizo in place of chorizo and is topped with

lettuce, sour cream, queso fresco and cilantro. I

tricked myself into enjoying a vegetarian option.

Most of the heavy lifting in that feat was done by

the chili sauce and textures. Nevertheless, if I had

no idea meat wasn’t included, than I would have to

count that as a win for the Cilantro Lime 2.0 chefs.

We also tried the taquitos and flautas. Both

were crispy and delicious with beef or chicken and

drizzled with sour cream and a flavorful avocado

sauce. The quesadilla was packed with meat and

gooey cheese, and had those crispy edges that

everyone loves but there’s never enough of. The

salsas range from a mild red, medium green and

“cry baby” hot. Honestly, their cry baby salsa did

have me sweating and tearing up a bit.

While I was there, several take-out and pickup

orders headed out the door so the word is out.

Cilantro Lime 2.0 is every bit of fun and flavor

that Instagram makes it seem. The dishes are

carefully crafted and taste as good as they look.

From the favorites to the artistic takes on the

traditional, Cilantro Lime is serving it up with

great customer service too.

ALL SHE NEEDS

IS LOVE

DYSTHYMIA IS LESS EXTREME AND

LESS INTENSE THAN A MAJOR

DEPRESSIVE DISORDER, ALTHOUGH

ITS SYMPTOMS ARE SIMILAR

Dear Patti,

We’re three teenage boys writing about our Grandma Connie. Technically she’s

our step grandmother. She’s lived with us ever since our stepdad Rob married our

mom five years ago.

Grandma Connie can be hard to deal with. Sometimes she’s a pushy pain in the

ass and we can’t stand her. She can be strict and nagging and gets angry about the

tiniest things. Even our mom agrees. But we know Grandma Connie loves us. She

doesn’t have any other grandchildren. She comes to all our games, helps us with

homework, works hard all day, and tries to help us.

Lately Grandma Connie has been in a very dark mood. She’s miserable a lot of

the time right now and always seems to be tired. Our mom took her to the doctor

recently and they said that she is physically healthy but has something called dysthymia.

It’s a kind of depression. The doctor gave her anti-depressant medication

and said she should go to psychotherapy.

All three of us feel bad now that we’ve given her such a hard time. She always

helps us but we don’t do much for her. How can we help her with her depression?

Whatever we can do, we want to try. She’d do the same for any of us.

— Gabe, Eddie and Arlo

Dear Gabe, Eddie and Arlo,

How heartwarming to witness all three of you brothers and your wholehearted

commitment to your Grandma Connie. That is extremely important as supportive

loved ones are an essential key to recovery from depression.

The disorder your grandmother is dealing with is a chronic form of depression.

Dysthymia is less extreme and less intense than a major depressive disorder. Its

symptoms, however, are similar. Dysthymia is less debilitating but can last for long periods

and, like major depression, can cause individuals to have a downcast mood and

loss of energy. Although these are symptoms of a disorder, at times it may be difficult

for loved ones not to take these moods personally.

Your grandma may also lose interest in things she used to find pleasurable, have

difficulty concentrating, be indecisive or negative, and have a poor opinion of herself

right now. Her appetite and weight may have increased or decreased, and she may

sleep too much or have trouble sleeping.

People suffering from depression often have an inner voice that is harsh and

demands that they be perfectionists. To counteract these negative thoughts, they need

empathy, acceptance, respect, and love from their loved ones. Help her to replace this

punitive voice with a loving one by not being overly critical and gently reminding her

to be warm and kind to herself, as she deserves it.

Listen to her, if you can in a non-judgmental way. If she shares her thoughts and

feelings, give your full attention. When she’s in pain and despair, you don’t have to do

or say anything special; just be there for her. Offer to help with housecleaning like

vacuuming or doing the dishes. Having a dirty or messy home may make her feel more

worthless and discouraged. With a clean living space, she’ll have less to worry about.

Encourage her to delegate tasks to the three of you.

The whole family can help support her in maintaining good eating and sleeping

habits as these are important components in managing mood stability. Fatigue and

hopelessness make it easy to procrastinate, but putting things off will eventually

cause anxiety and guilt, which increases depression. Maybe your parents as well as

you young men can gently encourage her to follow through on important actions.

Psychodynamic, insight-oriented, or interpersonal psychotherapy can enable her

to sort out the feelings that are behind her symptoms and to explore those feelings, no

matter how painful. Therapy is also helpful in the treatment of depression as it examines

and corrects many of the self-critical thought patterns and views that people with

mood disorders typically experience. It’s important that your grandma be encouraged

to communicate freely with her therapist. She might also want to join a support group

and learn stress reduction techniques.

Since this is a difficult time for you boys, you might consider professional counseling

for yourselves. Often through the challenging experience of protecting and

nourishing a family member, an even deeper love can develop. n

Psychotherapy, has been a psychotherapist in private practice for 23 years and has an office in Pasadena.

SOUTH PASADENA WEDNESDAY NIGHT

P.20

Who gets to tell the stories that comprise our shared history?

Who determines what defines a cultural moment? Come to

that, who decides what is or is not “ladylike”?

Those questions and more animate Kit Steinkellner’s play “Ladies,”

which receives its world premiere at Boston Court Pasadena

Friday after being workshopped at the theater’s New Play Festival

last year. Per Steinkellner, the title can be interpreted literally, playfully,

or primly — and all interpretations are correct.

The play tracks a year in the life of the Blue Stockings Society,

a feminist group — arguably the first — created by four women

in 1750s London, including wealthy British social reformer and

writer Elizabeth Montagu, portrayed onstage by Meghan Andrews.

“Ladies” also resurrects essayist and poet Elizabeth Carter (played

by Carie Kawa); self-educated novelist Fanny Burney (Jully Lee),

who counted Jane Austen and Dr. Samuel Johnson among her fans;

and Swiss-born neoclassical painter Angelica Kauffman (Tracey

A. Leigh), who was one of only two female founding members of

London’s Royal Academy of Arts. In pubs at that time, men — and

only men — discussed events of the day; the Society relocated and

expanded those conversations to include women.

Steinkellner, who also created the acclaimed “Sorry for Your

Loss” web series on Facebook Watch, says she first learned of

BY BLISS BOWEN

the Blue Stockings Society 10 years ago while visiting London’s

National Portrait Gallery. Inspired by the group’s story as well as

its members’ novels, paintings and jewelry, she was unsure how to

translate her excitement without sounding “preachy and pedantic.”

The theme was clear: female empowerment, a consistent topic of interest

throughout her work. Numerous revisions over several years

yielded the stylized piece starting previews Friday, which includes

nudity and onstage sex, as well as the playwright — unnamed, and

performed by the four actresses. It’s Steinkellner’s witty way of inserting

her modern-day voice to reconstruct history without muting

the Society’s members.

Her words tumble out in a rush of sparkplug energy as she articulates

her efforts to make history “dynamic” and alive in the present.

She says she’s wrestling with “the weight of what it has always been

to be a woman in the Western world, and the stress and pressure

and disappointment and unfairness of all that. And also the fact

that things have gotten better, but things still feel so deeply unfair.

There’s this element of privilege that’s intersectional; being a white,

able-bodied, straight woman today, you have a certain amount of

privilege that your corollary 300 years ago doesn’t have, but the system

still feels broken. … There is a gulf between now and then — a

gulf and a strand of hair. We’re so far away from that time, and we’re

so very, very close.”

The difference between 18th-century and 21st-century feminists begins with semantics: in

the 1750s, “feminism” wasn’t yet a buzzword.

“The word wasn’t even invented until 100 years after, approximately,” Andrews notes.

“So to be a feminist in the mid-18th century wasn’t even really a thing. However, the French

Revolution was about to happen, the American Revolution was bubbling, and England had

already experienced the Glorious Revolution [of 1688], so revolution was in the vernacular.

And Elizabeth Montagu was the first one to include women in the conversation … encouraging

women to take ownership of their work: to put their name on their novels, not to use

a male pseudonym on their books, for example, or not to paint only landscapes and selfportraits.

They weren’t allowed to paint from life, which is essentially a nude portrait, and the

nude portrait was like a calling card for artists; the better your nudes, the better an artist you

were. Women were kept away from things that would establish them as capable artists. …

“This is an opportunity to be inspired by what may have possibly been the first feminists.

What do we think happened? What actually happened? What did history record, and most

importantly, how does that impact us here and now?”

Director Jessica Kubzansky’s decision to have only women staff the production underscores

the theme of female empowerment. Steinkellner says that choice was driven by the

goal of seeing “women’s work onstage” and having “women telling a story about women.”

Andrews concurs that it does the play “a great service.”

“That’s not to say that I don’t love working with men — I do,” she says. “But it’s created an

environment that is so safe.”

Steinkellner’s currently “in the room” with staff writers for “Sorry for Your Loss”; shooting

for its second season begins days after “Ladies” opens. She jokingly calls herself “a real

amphibian” because she enjoys hopping between theatre and TV.

“I mean, look,” she says, a phrase that punctuates her conversation often. “Unless you’re,

like, Lin-Manuel Miranda with ‘Hamilton,’ it’s hard to get as many eyeballs on your play as

you will with a TV show, especially a premium streaming show. I don’t believe I’m sacrificing

quality at all by making a TV show. I feel so artistically fulfilled. There’s a magic in that. I love

working with a bunch of writers and us all having ownership over the show. …

“But I also love being in rehearsal [for ‘Ladies’], the intimacy and immediacy of that. I

wouldn’t trade one kind of magic for the other. My playwriting makes my TV writing better,

and I think my TV writing makes my playwriting better. You know those exercise classes

where they have legs days and arms days? I feel like that with TV writing and playwriting.” n

“Ladies” premieres at Boston Court Pasadena, 70 N. Mentor Ave., Pasadena, at 8 p.m. Friday, May 24, and runs

through Sunday, June 30; $20-$39. Info: (626) 683-6801. kitsteinkellner.com, bostoncourtpasadena.org

PORTLAND’S TALBOTT BROTHERS BRING SIBLING HARMONIES AND HEARTFELT

STORYTELLING TO WINE & SONG IN SOUTH PASADENA WEDNESDAY NIGHT

“T

here’s only a few

things that a man like

me needs,” the Talbott

Brothers sing in sly, inviting harmony

on their song “Hey Honey.”

“Jesus, whiskey, and you right

next to me.”

One other thing they need:

music. Lots of it, preferably

homemade. “Hey Honey” is from

the Talbott Brothers’ warmly received

third album, “Gray,” which

has kept them on the road since

its release in 2017.

Their backstory resembles

that of many an Americana

and folk band: Growing up,

small town Nebraska natives

Nick and Tyler Talbott taught

themselves to play along with

Johnny Cash and the Beatles

on a dreadnought guitar that

belonged to their father, who had

played in an Eagles cover band.

The personable duo found their

groove with the clean-shaven

Tyler’s muscular baritone taking

the vocal lead while playing

rhythm guitar alongside bearded

older brother Nick’s more complex

fretwork. Eventually they

took their acoustic act public

at church and coffeehouses,

which opened doors to bars and

nightclubs; a few years ago, they

followed their muse to Portland,

Oregon, where they currently

reside. Fast forward to the present,

and they’ve added mandolin

and harmonica to their gig bags,

while their tour itinerary also

includes wineries, February’s

Key West-bound Rock Boat

cruise, and Wine & Song in South

Pasadena this Wednesday.

More or less on schedule with

their biannual release schedule

— “Gray” was preceded by 2015’s

“Places” and 2013’s “The Road” —

the Talbotts recently returned to

the studio to work on their next

album. Wednesday’s sets will

hopefully include one or two new

songs like the yearning “Without

a Doubt,” sung in the voice of

a man conflicted by yearning

and regret, along with dynamic

standouts from “Gray” such as

the blues-tinged “Dead Man Pass”

and “Traveler,” an open-hearted

view of troubadour life: “Out

here on the road/ So many men

with talent, but only few have

the soul/ … Maybe I’m no better

than the man who pays a dollar

for a fix/ And maybe I’m no

different than the ones who are

running all of this.”

Their storytelling is grounded

and scaled to life, and the flowing

warmth of their music connects

on a visceral level. It’s reductive

to compare them to anyone else

because the Talbott Brothers

have put in enough hours and

miles to forge their own musical

identity. But if you like, say, the

Lumineers, the Steel Wheels,

and/or Ray LaMontagne, or if you

just savor acoustic intimacy, you

could do far worse than heading

to South Pasadena Wednesday

night. n

Wine & Song hosts the Talbott Brothers

at 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 29, at Arroyo

Seco Golf Course, 1055 Lohman Lane,

South Pasadena; $20/$14. Sofia Talvik is

also a featured artist. thetalbottbrothers.

SINKANE, Dépaysé (City Slang): HHH

“I’m singing for the day we realize that we all relate,”

Sudanese-American frontman Ahmed Gallab exults

over synths, horns and harmonies on the title

track, named after a French term for disorientation,

like you’re in another world. Sudan’s diversity and

recent uprisings inspired the rubbery “Ya Sudan”;

“Everybody” and “The Searching” unite inclusive

convictions with urgent rhythms. Lyrically, it’s more

earnest than poetic. Musically, it melds funk, R&B,

Afro-pop and dancehall, though less magnetically

than 2014’s “Mean Love” or 2017’s “Life Livin’ It,” but

slinky grooves are not its raison d’etre. sinkane.com

JIMMIE VAUGHAN, Baby, Please Come

Home (Last Music Co.): HHHH

The veteran Texas blues guitarist tosses off tasty

note clusters, shuffles and greasy grooves like

a master storyteller rubbing words together to

audience-charming effect, backed by a horn section

that intensifies the flavor of discerning material

from the songbags of Richard Berry (“Be My Lovey

Dovey” is a savory delight), Fats Domino, Lefty

Frizzell, and T-Bone Walker, among others. Vaughan’s

in brandy-smooth vocal form, and his playing’s a

masterclass on “less is more” from the top of Lloyd

Price’s romping title track to the gut-satisfying close

of Jimmy Reed’s “Baby, What’s Wrong.” Carry on, sir.

LONGTIME MAD MAGAZINE SENIOR EDITOR JOE RAIOLA BRINGS

‘THE JOY OF CENSORSHIP’ TO THE SIERRA MADRE PLAYHOUSE

Free Speech

and Comedy

For 33 years Joe Raiola took satirical

aim at every imaginable sacred cow as

the Senior Editor of MAD magazine.

While he likes to note that he “specialized

in making funny noises in the

hallway,” he also saw the magazine as

an important bastion of free speech

ever since it was criticized as dangerously

subversive during the 1950s-era

McCarthy hearings in the U.S. House of

Representatives.

Now retired, Raiola remains active

by touring his solo comedy show “The

Joy of Censorship” nationwide, including

a one-night-only performance next

Thursday, May 30, at the Sierra Madre

Playhouse. Speaking from his home in

New York City, he promises a show that

will mix powerful points with hilarious

stories and visual samples of some of

the most controversial cartoons in the

history of “MAD.”

“It’s an evening of comedy, a comic

performance with elements of standup,

storytelling, and theater, and some of it

in the guise of a lecture on free speech

and comedy,” Raiola explains. “It’s a

cool theme to me and I bring a little bit

of “MAD” to it and illustrate some pieces

that were censored or banned for one

reason or another, actually shown on

screen.”

Raiola came up with the idea for

“Joy” when he was asked by a librarian

to present a talk on “MAD” to an audi-

BY CARL KOZLOWSKI

ence of children, since the magazine

was the most stolen magazine in the

New York Public Library. Raiola was

also an actively professional standup

comic at the time, so his 40-minute

presentation went over so well that he

decided to create a show for adult audiences

that could dig deeper.

“Libraries are interested in censorship,

and I wasn’t aware at the time

that ‘MAD’ was almost shut down in

the 1950s under McCarthy and it was

swept up in all that,” says Raiola, who

was invited to bring the show to Sierra

Madre by Playhouse staff member Todd

McGraw, who helps him with an annual

tribute to John Lennon that raises money

for the cancer charity Gilda’s Club in New

York City. “I put together a show about

censorship, comedy and ‘MAD,’ and I

never stopped doing it.

“It turned out to be a subject more

important to me than I realized,” he

continues. “‘MAD’ was the only EC comic

that survived, and it revolutionized satire

in this country. It’s cool it was born

out of fear, repression and censorship,

because you can tell the free speech of

any society by how healthy its standing

against censorship is. We now have

a president questioning the legality of

‘Saturday Night Live,’ so it’s time to keep

the spotlight on these issues.”

While Raiola has presented ‘Joy’ at

countless professional conferences,

Joe Raiola

public libraries, colleges and regional theaters

in 44 states, he has never brought

it to Southern California before. He notes

some surprising things about the places

he has performed at.

“I like doing red states like Mississippi,

Utah, Arkansas and Kentucky, where

I’m not as likely to have an audience

that agrees with some of the things I’m

saying,” says Raiola. “I have to piss off

liberals too and I have. I’ve run into some

places where it didn’t go over so well.

West Virginia said ‘That kind of comedy

doesn’t go over here,’ but no one’s killed

me yet.

“I don’t use all the foul words myself,

but if I’m quoting Samantha Bee on

Ivanka Trump, I say the whole word,

not ‘the c-word.’ I can use the words in

context in a way that most comedians

can’t. That makes it interesting. Dick

Gregory, Lenny Bruce, George Carlin and

Richard Pryor are my four Mount Rushmore

of standups. What do they have in

common? No one could tell them what to

say and they never apologized. They were

fearless, and exposed racism, misogyny,

using these words in service to making a

real point. “ n

BY CARL KOZLOWSKI

The Kids Aren’t Alright

‘BOOKSMART’ TRIES TO SHOW TEEN GIRLS CAN BE RAUNCHIER

THAN BOYS BUT TAKES THE WILD RIDE TOO FAR

There have been plenty of entertaining teen-party

films over the years, from John Hughes’ debut

classic “Sixteen Candles” and “Weird Science”

through the “American Pie” trilogy and Judd

Apatow’s “Superbad.” The new film “Booksmart”

tries to put a fresh spin on the genre by making its

two lead high school seniors female, but the antics

they engage in are alternately timeworn clichés or

push-the-envelope raunch, resulting in a movie that

will make most viewers worry rather than laugh

about the next generation.

The movie follows Molly (Beanie Feldstein) and

Amy (Kaitlyn Dever), lifelong best friends who have

spent their entire four years of high school avoiding

any semblance of partying or a social life besides

each other. On the day before graduation, Molly overhears

some classmates saying they wish they could

have gotten to know her or have sex with her, and

realizes that these classmates have made it into Ivy

League schools too, despite the fact they have fully

indulged in partying throughout high school.

Furious that she has forced herself to miss out

on everything her peers find fun in life, Molly challenges

Amy to go to the biggest graduation party of

the entire school that night. As they frantically wind

up at two wrong addresses — an empty yacht where

the richest geek in class tries and fails to throw

a bash, and a hilariously bizarre murder mystery

party thrown by the theater club — the girls get ever

more desperate to get to the real party they have no

address for but are watching unfold epically in realtime

streaming.

When they finally get to the right place, events

escalate in some pretty wild and inventive ways. But

the movie also takes its portrayal of teen partying

and the sadly PC mindsets of brainwashed millennials

to new extremes that might leave viewers

wondering how low movies can go.

In the film’s most shocking scene, Amy — who

came out as a lesbian two years before but has

never acted on that inclination — winds up having

a sexual encounter on the floor of the house party’s

bathroom with a girl she just learned is also lesbian.

The scene is portrayed for full sensuality, with slow

passionate kisses and sensual music, until Amy is

told that she’s doing the position wrong and in her

mortification over the mistake, projectile vomits on

the other girl. Rest assured, this movie’s determination

to make a teen lesbian relationship happen

results in the girls exchanging numbers the next day.

It’s true that the films I first mentioned from past

eras have glorified teen sex, alcohol and marijuana

usage as well. But in the Hughes films, there were

lessons to be learned, and ultimately true love and a

sense of ethics or morality won out.

The same goes for “Superbad,” in which two teen

male nerds try to lose their virginity with girls amid a

wild night of partying yet find themselves waking up

without female companionship and wind up starting

real relationships with girls they truly find interesting.

“Booksmart” had a good idea in flipping the genders

on “Superbad” by making its two main protagonists

teenage girls and showing their often-discounted

points of view. But it largely focuses on shredding

the envelope of acceptable behavior.

Most maddening of all is the fact that since

“Booksmart” is directed and written by women,

it is being sold to impressionable young minds as

a strongly feminist movie. Yet when the lead girls’

transformation in the movie is to simply indulge in

every base instinct they can find, it’s obvious that the

real message here is that empowerment is defined by

anything-goes amorality.

The actors throughout “Booksmart” deliver energetic

performances that occasionally draw laughs

and show promise for future stardom. But aside from

the acting and very sporadic flashes of true wit, it’s

one movie that viewers would be smart to avoid. n

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are

considering bidding on this property lien,

you should understand that there are risks

involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You

will be bidding on a lien, not on the property

itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction

does not automatically entitle you to

free and clear ownership of the property.

You should also be aware that the lien being

auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are

the highest bidder at the auction, you are or

may be responsible for paying off all liens

senior to the lien being auctioned off, before

you can receive clear title to the property. You

are encouraged to investigate the existence,

priority, and size of outstanding liens that

may exist on this property by contacting the

county recorder’s office or a title insurance

company, either of which may charge you a

fee for this information. If you consult either of

these resources, you should be aware that the

same lender may hold more than one mortgage

or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE

TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown

on this notice of sale may be postponed one

or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary,

trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g

of the California Civil Code. The law requires

that information about trustee sale postponements

be made available to you and to the

public, as a courtesy to those not present at

the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale

date has been postponed, and, if applicable,

the rescheduled time and date for the sale of

this property, you may call 800-280-2832

for information regarding the trustee’s sale

or visit this Internet Web site http://www.

qualityloan.com, using the file number assigned

to this foreclosure by the Trustee:

CA-17-798434-JB. Information about postponements

that are very short in duration

or that occur close in time to the scheduled

sale may not immediately be reflected in the

telephone information or on the Internet Web

site. The best way to verify postponement information

is to attend the scheduled sale. The

undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability

for any incorrectness of the property address

or other common designation, if any, shown

herein. If no street address or other common

designation is shown, directions to the location

of the property may be obtained by sending

a written request to the beneficiary within

10 days of the date of first publication of this

Notice of Sale. If the sale is set aside for any

reason, including if the Trustee is unable to

convey title, the Purchaser at the sale shall be

entitled only to a return of the monies paid to

the Trustee. This shall be the Purchaser’s sole

and exclusive remedy. The purchaser shall

have no further recourse against the Trustor,

the Trustee, the Beneficiary, the Beneficiary’s

Agent, or the Beneficiary’s Attorney. If you

have previously been discharged through

bankruptcy, you may have been released of

personal liability for this loan in which case

this letter is intended to exercise the note

holders right’s against the real property only.

possible that at the time of the sale the opening

bid may be less than the total debt.

If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any

reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive

remedy shall be the return of monies

paid to the Trustee, and the successful bidder

shall have no further recourse.

The beneficiary of the Deed of Trust has executed

and delivered to the undersigned a written

request to commence foreclosure, and the

undersigned caused a Notice of Default and

Election to Sell to be recorded in the county

where the real property is located.

NOTICE OF TRUSTEE’S SALE

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you

are considering bidding on this property lien,

you should understand that there are risks involved

in bidding at a trustee auction. You will

be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself.

Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction

does not automatically entitle you to free and

clear ownership of the property. You should

also be aware that the lien being auctioned off

may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder

at the auction, you are or may be responsible

for paying off all liens senior to the lien

being auctioned off, before you can receive

clear title to the property. You are encouraged

to investigate the existence, priority, and size

of outstanding liens that may exist on this

property by contacting the county recorder’s

office or a title insurance company, either of

which may charge you a fee for this information.

If you consult either of these resources,

you should be aware that the same lender

may hold more than one mortgage or deed of

trust on this property.

NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale

date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed

one or more times by the mortgagee,

beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to

Section 2924g of the California Civil Code.

The law requires that information about trustee

sale postponements be made available to

you and to the public, as a courtesy to those

not present at the sale. If you wish to learn

whether your sale date has been postponed,

and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and

date for the sale of this property, you may call

county recorder’s office or a title insurance

company, either of which may charge you a

these resources, you should be aware that the
