PROTECT NET NEUTRALITY

I am writing to you because I want

to protect our open Internet. Two

years ago, the FCC under Ajit Pai

repealed the net neutrality protections

that make the Internet an open

and free platform to connect and

exchange ideas. If we can’t restore

these protections, the Internet as we

know it could change forever.

The House of Representatives

has passed the Save the Internet Act,

which will restore the open Internet

protections that were repealed by the

FCC in 2017.

Now, Senate Republicans and

Democratic Sen. Kyrsten Sinema are

blocking the bill in the Senate, despite the overwhelming and crosspartisan

support that net neutrality has with the American public.

I hope our senators vote in favor of this bill. Otherwise, we’ll be

forced to hold them accountable at the ballot box in 2020.

PLEASE WRITE OR CALL

After three years of nearly nonstop advocacy efforts, the hopes

of California’s developmentally disabled and their families now rests

with the governor and key leaders of the Legislature. I’m writing

from AbilityFirst, based here in Pasadena servicing children and

adults with disabilities in the region.

Community advocates who have been fighting for an 8 percent

increase in rates for disability services have reason for hope, but

also for concern. Advocates were heartened when the state Senate

voted to provide funding for an 8 percent increase in their version of

the budget. But when the State Assembly voted, they paired back the

funding to allow for increases of just 5.5 percent. The Assembly version

of the budget also failed to

address hardships organizations

like AbilityFirst and in the Los

Angeles area are facing due to

higher minimum wage costs.

Because of the differences

in the two budgets, the funding

for these services now moves

to the Conference Committee.

Gov. Newsom, President Pro

Tem of the Senate Toni Atkins,

Speaker of the Assembly

Anthony Rendon and Budget

Chairs Sen. Holly Mitchell and

Assembly member Phil Ting will

lead these negotiations to finalize

California’s budget for the

coming year. They will complete

their work before June 15.

People with developmental

disabilities who depend upon

support services and their advocates

have been fighting for the

8 percent included in the Senate

budget to slow the loss of experienced

direct care staff who

are leaving for better paying

positions in fast food and retail

industries. There are roughly

350,000 people who have been

formally identified as eligible

for services through California’s

Lanterman Act. Each has

an extended family of five or

more who are directly involved

with their loved ones. We estimate

the California workforce

to be close to 100,000 devoted

to serving these individuals and

their families. Roughly 30 percent

of all of these people live

within the greater Los Angeles-

Orange County area.

I’m writing to ask members

of the Pasadena community

to please contact the following

legislators during the next

couple weeks and demand the

8 percent increase in rates for

services provided to people with

disabilities. The programs at the

AbilityFirst Lawrence L. Frank

Center in Pasadena depend on

this crucial funding. AbilityFirst

is a 93-year-old organization that

sees the talents and possibilities

in every individual and helps

them to achieve their goals. But

without the 8 percent increase,

low pay for our staff will lead to

unfulfilled positions that result

in program closures.

•GUEST OPINION•

BY CELINE ALVAREZ

HOPE ON THE

FRONTLINES

THE GOAL OF THOSE FIGHTING

HOMELESSNESS IS GETTING PEOPLE

INTO PLACES OF THEIR OWN

In the early 1990s, when I moved to Los Angeles from a small town in West

Texas, the city was struggling to confront the magnitude of the AIDS epidemic.

I took a job in a treatment clinic downtown because I longed to help the most

vulnerable among us — and to do my part in providing them with the resources

and care they needed.

Today, Los Angeles is in the midst of a different crisis: homelessness. Each

night, tens of thousands of people are sleeping on sidewalks; thousands more are

living in cars or shelters. There’s nothing new about this crisis. Since the early

years of Skid Row, LA’s streets have been the city’s de-facto shelters.

The gravity of this crisis can feel overwhelming and dispiriting at times,

because homelessness is not just experienced in one place, but everywhere. The

truth is that we haven’t seen the magnitude of people experiencing homelessness

as we are today.

Nonetheless, I approach our homelessness crisis with a renewed sense of

promise — and believe we have good reason to be hopeful about the future.

With the passing of Measures H and HHH, we are beginning to move in the right

direction, creating the systems and implementing the programs that reshape

how we help people experiencing homelessness. For the first time, LA County

has increased its investment in direct services, growing the number of outreach

workers and case managers who are equipped with an effective, streamlined

system to connect people with services and housing assistance.

On top of this progress, public perception is changing. More and more

Angelenos are recognizing the urgency. With the support of United Way of Greater

Los Angeles’ Everyone In campaign, people across the county are learning how to

advocate for supportive and affordable housing in their neighborhoods.

“Homes end homelessness,” as the Everyone In campaign asserts, is not just a

slogan. For folks on the frontlines, it’s a truth we hold closely and fight for every day.

I have experienced this shift in public opinion firsthand. A few weeks ago, I

spoke with a congregation in Woodland Hills. And like many I have interacted

with in recent months, most were longing to find opportunities to do more than

pack hygiene kits and donate clothes. While they hoped to hear about how we are

helping people experiencing homelessness, they yearned to learn how long-term

housing solutions actually work.

I showed them a 30-minute clip from “The Advocates,” a documentary that

reveals the stories of frontline outreach and caseworkers who are fighting

on behalf of those experiencing homelessness, working tirelessly to get them

supportive housing and critical services.

As the clip concluded, the room fell silent. I was humbled, but I was not

surprised. Indeed, every person I’ve shown this film to has had a similar reaction

— a real aha moment.

And that’s because “The Advocates” begins to answer one of the most pressing

questions that has been weighing on our collective conscience for so long: What

does it take to get a person experiencing homelessness back into the safety and

stability of a home?

The truth is that it takes a lot: an empathic relationship that often takes months to

build, jumping through dozens of hoops (“hoops of fire,” we call them), and set-backs.

But then, you have that moment of yes — when you find someone a place to

call home, supportive housing. With that home comes an enriching community

with wraparound services such as life skills and job skills training and health care

services that can really change a life.

With each yes I witness at Housing Works, I remember why I do this work. And I

remember why everyone in Los Angeles must join us in this fight. ■

Celine Alvarez is executive director of the nonprofi t Housing Works.

GROUPS FORM PASADENA TENANT JUSTICE COALITION

TO GET RENT CONTROL ON THE NOVEMBER BALLOT

BY ANDRÉ COLEMAN

According to a recent poll, nearly 70 percent of local residents

support rent control and more than 80 percent support a law

that would block landlords from evicting residents without a

valid reason.

Meanwhile, separate groups that have advocated over the past

few years for fair rents in Pasadena have joined forces to form

the Pasadena Tenant Justice Coalition (PTJC).

The group used its inaugural meeting to announce its

formation and plans to put a rent control measure for Pasadena

on the November ballot.

The PTJC — comprised of the Pasadena Tenants Union,

Affordable Housing Advocates, the Democratic Socialists of

America Los Angeles (DSA-LA) and the ACLU SoCal — plans to

start collecting signatures in the fall.

“The Pasadena Tenant Justice Coalition (PTJC) is forming

to address the lack of tenant protections in Pasadena resulting

in escalating and unconscionable rents, as well as the city’s

allowance of the practice of evicting tenants who are in full

observance of their lease obligations without cause, resulting

in extreme housing instability for many tenants,” said Nicole

Hodgson, PTJC member. “Low-and-moderate income tenants of

color have been especially hard hit by the city’s failure to control

BERNIE SANDERS SET TO HOLD

RALLY FRIDAY AT PASADENA

CONVENTION CENTER

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders

will hold a campaign rally at noon Friday, May

31, at the Pasadena Convention Center., 300 E.

Green St.

The event is part of a West Coast swing that

includes stops in Nevada, San Jose and San

Francisco.

After the event at the Convention Center,

Sanders will speak at a forum on immigration

along with candidates Kamala Harris, Jay Inslee

and Julian Castro that will be held by the Coalition

for Humane Immigrant Rights Los Angeles

(CHIRLA) and FIRM Action at 3:30 p.m. at the

Pasadena Hilton, 168 S. Los Robles Ave. That

event is closed to the public.

Sanders was the only presidential candidate

to visit Pasadena during the 2016 presidential

election. He trails former vice president and

Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden by double

digits, according to a number of polls.

“I am really excited,” said Sanders state

delegate Melissa Michelson. “This is Pasadena’s

opportunity to hear from the man himself in a full

speech. The media usually just gives snippets of

his speeches.”

Michelson also served as a national delegate

for the 27th congressional district in 2016.

The 77-year-old Sanders’ 2016 run transformed

politics and gave progressives a stronger

voice pushing for Medicare for all, a fair living

wage and breaking up Wall Street banks.

His policies captured the imagination of

young people across the nation, but he was unable

to defeat Hillary Clinton for the Democratic

nomination, despite polls that claimed Sanders

would defeat Donald Trump in the General Election.

So far, 23 candidates have thrown their hats

into the race for the Democratic nomination.

Pasadena has become a hotbed for Democratic

politics over the past 20 years, as Al Gore

came to town during the 2000 election, Hillary

Clinton held a rally across the street from the

Pasadena Weekly during the 2008 elections, and

then-candidate Barack Obama, who once lived

in Pasadena, held a campaign event at Castle

Green.

“Bernie is serious about the grassroots,”

Michelson said. “He has been to downtown Los

Angeles and he is going to the communities. He

can fill big stadiums and still rally local communities.”

Doors open at 10:30 a.m. The event starts at

noon Friday, May 31 at the Convention Center.

The event is free and open to the public. Tickets

are not required, but an RSVP is encouraged.

Entrance will be provided on a first come, first

served basis. Parking is limited.

BRIEFS

JAYLENE MOSELEY:

1949-2019

CANCER CLAIMS THE LIFE OF

BELOVED COMMUNITY ACTIVIST

AND BUSINESSWOMAN

BY ANDRÉ COLEMAN

Flintridge Center CEO, local commercial developer and

longtime social activist Jaylene Moseley died Saturday, one day before her 70th

birthday, following a battle with cancer.

Winner of multiple awards for her work in the community, Moseley also

founded the J. L. Moseley Co., which developed and managed commercial real

estate in Northwest Pasadena and Altadena.

“Jaylene ’s biggest legacy is the impact her work and her efforts had on

community-driven change and policies,” said former Pasadena City Councilwoman

Jacque Robinson-Baisley, a longtime friend. “She made it clear that it

was never about her as an individual but us, as a community, especially those

who needed that first, second or third chance to be successful.”

Before moving to Pasadena, Mosely grew up in Big Timber, Montana,

population 1,000, and attended Montana State University, where she majored in

music from 1967 to 1970. “I didn’t leave Montana until I was 20, when I decided

to see all 50 states,” Moseley is quoted as saying in the book “Hometown Pasadena:

The Insider’s Guide.”

“I worked when I needed money; I made it to 45 states in five years and then

I ended up staying in California because I liked its diversity and progressive and

creative people,” Moseley said. “I was just lucky in picking Pasadena.”

News of Moseley’s diagnosis was revealed last week in an email to her supporters.

“All of us have been touched in some way by Jaylene’s all-consuming dedication

to making our community a place that is free from the cycles of violence

and poverty, and it has been our honor and privilege to work beside her, and

under her gentle leadership, in trying to make that dream a reality,” according to

a statement issued by the center.

Moseley was involved in Pasadena and Altadena community affairs for more

than 25 years. As president of the nonprofit Flintridge Center, she helped the

community as it struggled with gang violence and the reintegration of prison

parolees into society. Moseley served as the managing director of the center

from 1986 through 2007.

In 2002, Moseley formed a coalition of students and residents to establish

afterschool activities at John Muir High School. The effort let to the creation of

Mustangs on the Move, consisting of 20 educational and enrichment programs.

Moseley was also a key part of then-Councilwoman Robinson-Baisley’s

Vision 20/20 initiative, which prepared more than 200 high-risk and gangaffiliated

individuals for construction trades.

Moseley’s numerous laurels for community leadership and sustainable

development practices include a 2019 County of Los Angeles award for more

than 30 years of dedicated service. In 2017, she was named the 41st Assembly

District Woman of the Year, presented by Assemblyman Chris Holden, 29th

Congressional District Woman of the Year Award from US Reo. Adam Schiff

in 2008, and in 2003 the Ruby McKnight Williams Award, presented by the

Pasadena NAACP.

Moseley is survived by her husband Alex Moseley, a local artist and craftsman.

Memorial services were pending at press time.

“She was a friend and mentor to not just me but countless others. My heartfelt

condolences go out to Alex, the Flintridge Center family and every youth,

young adult and person who deserved and earned the gifts of her heart through

her work in the community. She is surely missed by all of us who love her.” n

HAMPTON TO RUN AGAIN

DISTRICT 1 COUNCILMAN ANNOUNCES

INTENTION TO RUN FOR SECOND TERM

BY ANDRÉ COLEMAN

Pasadena District 1 City Councilman Tyron Hampton

announced this week that he is running for re-election.

Hampton has filed a candidate intention statement

with City Clerk Mark Jomsky.

Hampton was born and raised in Pasadena and

graduated from John Muir High School where he met his wife Tara Gomez-

Hampton. They have one daughter.

During his time on the council, Hampton, a small business owner, focused

on quality-of-life issues in his district. He opposed the NFL playing in the Rose

Bowl, and continues to maintain contact with his constituents by holding

frequent community meetings and walking his district.

Hampton currently sits on the council’s Public Safety Committee and the

Economic Development and Technology (EDTECH) Committee.

He also sat on an ad hoc committee formed by Mayor Terry Tornek to shore

up plans to implement sales tax funds earmarked for the Pasadena Unified

School District (PUSD). n

rents and its allowance of arbitrary evictions.”

The campaign, states a press release issued last

Monday afternoon, “will focus on tenant power

of making sure rents cannot increase more than

inflation, and landlords can’t evict tenants without

cause.”

According to Pasadenans Organizing for

Progress (POP), a poll conducted by David Binder

Research revealed that 69 percent of local voters

support rent control and 82 percent support a law

that would block evictions without a valid reason.

“The survey results are not surprising,” said Ed

Washatka, chair of POP’s housing committee. “The

voters are telling the mayor and City Council that they

want them to pass laws that protect renters against

skyrocketing rent increases and unjust evictions.”

According to the poll, all racial groups support

rent control locally, with the lowest support coming

from white residents, who still overwhelmingly

support both measures at 65 percent. Seventy-four

percent of Asian Americans polled also supported

rent control and a fair eviction law. In the poll, 76

percent of African Americans supported the measures

and 78 percent of Latinos also said they supported

rent control and a law protecting tenants from unjust

evictions.

The poll also found widespread support for rent

control in all seven council districts.

Eighty-one percent of the respondents in

Pasadena’s District 5 favored rent control, followed

by 76 percent in Districts 1 and 3. Sixty-eight

percent of the respondents in District 4 support rent

control. In District 2, 66 percent of the respondents

said they supported rent control. In District 7,

61 percent of the respondents they support rent

control, as well as 58 percent in District 6.

According to POP, 700 local voters took part in

the poll.

“The political establishment is out of touch with

the reality of ever rising costs and unjust evictions

for immigrant and working class families and

families of color,” said Pablo Alvarado, POP board

member and executive director of the National

Day Laborer Organizing Network. “I hope that

our political leaders engage in a constructive and

honest dialogue to bring justice to the housing

market in our city.”

While state and local officials point to a housing

shortage as the cause of increased housing costs,

they disagree on the solution.

Suburbs across the state, including Pasadena,

helped stall a bill that would have forced

communities to allow mixed-use projects in single

family home neighborhoods.

Senate Bill 50, which would have prohibited

cities across the state from banning mid-rise

apartments within a half-mile of public transit

stations and allowed for four or more homes on

parcels of land in single family neighborhoods,

failed to advance out of the state Senate’s

Appropriations Committee on May 17.

to President

Trump, the troops

will have a “mostly

part of a buildup that

began in response to what the

US has said was a threat from Iran.

Critics claimed the bill would lead to a takeover

of local land use ordinances and result in increased

density.

The bill could return in January. Supporters

claimed it would have added much needed housing

and decreased costs.

According to a study out of UC Berkeley’s Urban

Displacement Project, Old Pasadena and most of

central Pasadena south of the 210 Freeway would

not have been impacted by the bill due to the

amount of existing apartment buildings in the area.

However, heading east past Lake Avenue,

many of the communities could have been vastly

impacted by the bill, including Allen Avenue near

Marshall Fundamental School, and neighborhoods

along the South Fair Oaks Avenue corridor below

Del Mar Boulevard all the way to the South

Pasadena border.

“We need to recognize there is a housing crisis

in California,” said Pasadena City Manager Steve

Mermell. “Without significant increase in residential

units home affordability will continue to diminish

and rents will continue to rise faster than incomes.

SB 50 was likely well intended but it was too blunt

of a solution. It would have crammed just too much

density on Pasadena, which has been a good actor

in terms of allowing growth and development.

I’m hopeful the recent actions in Sacramento will

allow time for the development of better legislation

that will effectively address the problem while

maintaining local land use control.”

Pasadena has taken some steps to protect

local tenants. In 2018, the Pasadena City Council

enacted an ordinance called the Pasadena Tenants

Protection Ordinance, which entitles some tenants

to compensation if landlords sell the building

resulting in tenant eviction.

Two separate attempts have been made over

the past two years by first the Glendale Tenants

Union (GTU) and later the Pasadena Tenants Union

(PTU) to initiate rent control in those cities, two

of the most expensive communities in the country

in which to rent. However, both efforts failed to

qualify petitions for their respective elections.

In May 2018, the PTU had only collected 8,679

signatures. At least 12,300 valid signatures were

required, according to City Clerk Mark Jomsky.

A similar effort in Glendale failed in October

2017 after Glendale City Clerk Ardy Kassakhian

deemed the petition “deficient and invalid.”

According to Kassakhian, the text of that

measure did not contain the ballot title and

summary by the city attorney. The text of the

measure also was not included anywhere in the

petition, a violation of the California Election Code,

Kassakhian said. Further, the petition did not

include a declaration by the author.

A one-bedroom apartment in Pasadena costs

about $2,100 a month and landlords in California

can increase the rent as much as they want. Some

local residents claim their rent has increased by

HOUSING FIRST

HOMELESSNESS DECLINES IN PASADENA THANKS TO FOCUS ON PROVIDING SHORT- AND LONG-TERM HOUSING

STORY BY JUSTIN CHAPMAN | PHOTOS BY MERCEDES BLACKEHART

The number of homeless individuals in Pasadena decreased by 20 percent this

year compared to 2018, according to the 2019 Homeless Count Report released

on May 20 by the city of Pasadena’s Housing Department, the Pasadena

Partnership to End Homelessness and Urban Initiatives.

The annual count is a one-night snapshot of those living in unsheltered locations

and temporary shelters. This year’s count was conducted on the evening of Jan. 22

into the early morning of Jan. 23, 2019, and tallied 542 people experiencing homelessness

in Pasadena, compared to 677 in 2018. That makes 2019 the second lowest

year since the count began in 1992, after only 2016, when 530 people were counted.

Homelessness in Pasadena has generally been on a decline since 2011, when

1,216 people were counted (except for an uptick the last two years). In 2011, the city

and homeless services providers implemented a new approach: housing first, as

opposed to clearing up personal issues and then being placed into a home. And city

officials and homeless advocates say that approach is highly successful.

“Permanent supportive housing is the only thing that ends homelessness,” said

William Huang, the city’s housing director, during a panel on homelessness at the

West Pasadena Residents’ Association’s annual meeting on May 8.

Officer Donovan Jones of the Pasadena Police Department’s Homeless Outreach

Psychiatric Evaluation (HOPE) team and Shawn Morrissey, Union Station Homeless

Service’s director of advocacy and community engagement, also served on the

panel.

The Solution

“It took us over 40 years to figure out that the solution for homelessness is an

HOUSING FIRST

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 9

actual home, but we finally did and that’s where our effort is now: to get people into

housing,” said Morrissey. “During the early periods of homeless services, all we had

to offer people were shelters. We didn’t have housing solutions, just temporary solutions.

We became dependent on the massive shelter system we built in LA.”

Morrissey, originally from Montreal, had been homeless himself for a long time

starting in his late 30s when he “washed up in Pasadena” in 2002, as he put it. He

was an opiate addict from age 12 to 40, but after he received support and housing

from Union Station, he was able to turn his life around.

“I showed up with two black eyes, my head was split open, I had no underwear

and I was wearing one contact and it wasn’t even mine,” said Morrissey. “You’d see

me on the street, I’d be wild-eyed, wild-haired. My success is a result of these types

of services and community that wrapped around me. As soon as people get into

housing, they’re no longer homeless.”

He said that it’s very challenging to provide services for people while they’re living

on the street, but getting a roof over their head and four walls around them has

a stabilizing effect and allows them to attend to many of the issues that led to their

homelessness to begin with.

“Not only is permanent supportive housing humane and the right thing to do, it

has a huge cost savings and helps both the individual and the community,” Morrissey

said. “It’s actually $15,000 to $20,000 cheaper

to help someone get into permanent supportive

housing than it is to walk by them on the street.”

The city’s strategies to address homelessness

include funding and working with partners that

provide basic homeless services, rapid rehousing,

permanent supportive housing and targeted homeless

prevention.

Rapid rehousing is short-term assistance for

people who are not chronically homeless — those

with a disabling condition who have been homeless

for more than a year — but recently became

homeless for economic reasons.

“We’re seeing people becoming homeless for the

first time in their lives,” said Huang. “A lot of them

are being priced out of their homes through raised

rents, or low-income retired people.”

Permanent supportive housing is typically an

apartment unit for those considered chronically

homeless. Huang said there is a misperception among the public that the development

of more permanent supportive housing in their neighborhood will cause crime

rates to go up and property values to go down.

“The safety level is actually enhanced because the person who is housed and

is now stable is far less likely to commit crimes,” he said. “Barbara King, a local

realtor, looked at property values around the three permanent supportive housing

developments we have in Pasadena and found that nobody’s property values went

down because the supportive housing developments were well designed and well

maintained.”

However, just because officials now know housing is the solution doesn’t mean

they have enough housing available.

“There’s a real bottleneck to building more housing,” said Huang. “There’s also a

disincentive for landlords even with rental vouchers, because it’s simpler and they

get more money when they rent units out at market rate. We need to get more units,

either by building them or through willing landlords. It’s a big ask, we realize that,

so we do have financial incentives for them if they’re willing to do it.”

Huang said the good news is that the city will be receiving new homeless funding

soon from the county and the state. They plan to use that money to get more rapid

and supportive housing, hire more housing navigators and case managers, expand

prevention efforts, enhance landlord incentives, distribute more motel vouchers and

provide more job development.

Pay It Forward

In 2011, homeless advocates in Pasadena launched the inaugural “Housing First”

initiative called Project House Pasadena, aimed at housing the 20 most vulnerable

“I’m really a stronger person today

because of all the encouragement I

had. It’s important what I’m doing,

my voice is important and I know in

my heart that I’ve found my passion.

Now I want to pay it forward and help

those who are still on the street.”

Dorothy Edwards

and severely chronically homeless individuals — those at risk of dying within a year

if they stayed on the streets. One of those 20 people was Dorothy Edwards.

Edwards was born in Monrovia and grew up in Hacienda Heights. After moving

from program to program trying to get off drugs, she became homeless in Pasadena,

partly to escape a domestic violence situation. She lived with her dog Gunner on

the embankment of the Foothill (210) Freeway behind Target in east Pasadena and

on a sofa in the donations area of Goodwill on Altadena Drive and Foothill Boulevard,

among other places.

Morrissey and others made several attempts to contact Edwards to give her a

housing voucher but she hid from them. Seven years ago, Morrissey caught up with

her, made a connection, built trust and convinced her to give supportive housing a

try. After using cocaine, meth and heroin intravenously for 24 years, she has now

been sober for several years and helps others in the position she used to be in. She

said housing and employment were the turning point for her.

Edwards went through an advocacy training program at the Corporation

for Supportive Housing (CSH), a community development financial institution

that empowers those with lived experiences to speak about homelessness

to policymakers. She now sits on CSH’s national board of directors and

works at Housing Works as an enrichment services coordinator in a 54-unit

supportive services and special needs building

in Eagle Rock.

“When you’re homeless for a long time you

feel like you’re less than and not enough, but Bill

Huang and Shawn Morrissey always made me feel

welcome,” said Edwards. “I’m really a stronger

person today because of all the encouragement

I had. It’s important what I’m doing, my voice is

important and I know in my heart that I’ve found

my passion. Now I want to pay it forward and help

those who are still on the street.”

Morrissey said they’ve housed hundreds of

people in the past few years with a 97 percent

retention rate.

Work to Do

While the 2019 Homeless Count Report found

that progress has been made among key subpopulations

such as youth, veterans and families with

children, it also found that more people are experiencing chronic homelessness,

accounting for 50 percent of the total homeless population.

Additionally, 58 percent of those counted were Pasadena residents before

they became homeless and only 5 percent first became homeless outside of LA

County or out of state, “largely refuting the misconception that people experiencing

homelessness travel from other areas and across the nation,” reads the

report.

The homeless population is also aging. The data reveal that three in 10 people

experiencing homelessness in Pasadena are aged 55 years or older. There were 23

families with children experiencing homelessness in Pasadena, but there were no

unsheltered families with children on the night of the count, compared to eight

families in 2018.

Huang identified several things anyone can do to help homeless individuals:

refer them to services through websites like LA-HOP.org; get educated by reading

the Homeless Count Report; donate to the nine orange parking meters around the

city that are part of the Real Change Movement designed by ArtCenter College of

Design; engage landlords to consider renting units to homeless individuals; and

volunteer with organizations that serve the homeless such as Union Station, Friends

in Deed, Foothill Unity Center and many others.

“We’re never going to end this problem, but Pasadena is uniquely positioned to

ostensibly end this problem as it exists today with the political will, the infrastructure,

and the robust services that we have,” said Morrissey. “What’s really going to

turn the tide is getting the appropriate information out to the community in order

to tear down some of these myths and stigmas and help people see there really is a

solution here: developing or making housing available for people.” n

While I often bring along a friend or family member

to my regular dining excursions for the Pasadena

Weekly, there is something blissful, even luxurious

about dining alone. Enjoying a meal without engaging in

conversation, paying more attention than usual to all the

behind-the-scenes action and how the staff interacts with one

another and diners, and having some down time alone after

a long work week is a joy for me. Just throw some pasta and

gelato into that scenario and call it a spa day for one.

Recently I visited the well-known and much-loved

Domenico’s Italian Restaurant and had one of the best

experiences I’ve had at the PW thus far, and that is not just

because pasta is my favorite food, as I may have previously

mentioned once or twice.

in Pasadena, and has been in the same location

since 1960, which was evident on my solo night

out. Although it was pretty full when I arrived,

everything about Domenico’s felt homey and

comfortable. There were no cheesy props or

decor that screams “Italian,” like bright red

checkered tablecloths or stereotypical Italian

chef figurines, mainly because everything about

Domenico’s screams authentic. I was seated at

a small table in the corner and enjoyed having

a view of everyone else. Families and couples

dined together, and it was clear that the waiters

were either familiar with their patrons, or they

were just friendly and welcoming. My waiter

joked with the large party in front of me for some

time before taking their orders.

To start, I had the fried ravioli ($8.95), which

came out within 10 minutes of ordering and was

nothing short of amazing. Fried ravioli stuffed with

cheese and served with marinara to dip into —

could it get any better? I knew immediately I would

take home half of the generous portion. The servers

were happy to answer my questions, so when it

came down to deciding what sauce for my gnocchi

a la carte ($10.49), it was suggested that I try the

creamy marinara for $1 extra. Creamy marinara is

simply regular marinara sauce mixed with alfredo

to give a creamier consistency, and just so happens

to work best with the gnocchi, as my waiter

suggested. No surprise there. My initial choice

of pesto would have been good, but not nearly as

perfect. Even a la carte my meal was served with a

side of garlic bread.

I should preface my remarks by saying that

gnocchi is on my short list of favorite pastas, so

perhaps I’m biased to say that their gnocchi is

one of the best I’ve ever had. While it tastes good

because of the nature of the pasta, this gnocchi

was special. Each bite was plump, pillowy, chewy,

and made me want to take a nap on the heaping

plate of it in front of me. As I was eating, a server

came to the pair next to me and said, “We ready for

boxes?” knowing full well that they, like me, would

not be able to finish the entirety of their meal.

Sometime later I wasn’t even halfway through and

my server came to me and with a smile asked if I

wanted a box. While I could have continued eating,

I reluctantly agreed and he whisked away the plate.

Many of their entrees are served with a choice of

soup or salad and garlic bread, so it felt like staff

had an acquired radar that could detect when

diners were close to their limit, and they rushed to

save the day — or in the case of some diners and

me, helped us avoid that feeling of a food coma

coming on.

In my case, they couldn’t quell my desire to at

least try their gelato. I went with the cookies and

cream ($4.95), made with cookie bits and coated in

hard shell chocolate, then served in a portion size

for one person, or to share if you’ve already fallen

into a semi-comatose state. Although it isn’t made

in-house, the gelato is tasty. My waiter shared with

me his favorite is the brownie cake, but that will

have to wait for next time.

Since I’d never been to Domenico’s, it dawned

on me later that perhaps going in a group would

have been ideal in order to try their pizza — for

which they are best known. Their menu boasts

both traditional pizza toppings and options to

make it unique, like salami, chorizo, broccoli, and

artichoke hearts, all dependent on the number of

toppings preferred. Gluten-free crust is available,

with the rest of the menu featuring cold and hot

sandwiches, such as eggplant, sausage, even

a pizza sandwich ($9.40-$10.40). Beyond the

amazing and diverse Italian fare offered, the most

appealing aspect of Domenico’s is its no-fuss

experience and cozy feel. Despite the place being

busy the night I was there, it feels like a restaurant

you’d only know about as a local resident. While

the restaurant has earned great reviews online,

most of those people seem to agree with that

sentiment. Whether with a group or alone, like me,

Domenico’s is sure to win you over.

THE NEW YOU

SELF-CARE BY A ‘MAN OF A CERTAIN

AGE’ CAN BE A HEALTHY EXPRESSION

AND ATTRACTIVE TO WOMEN

Dear Patti,

My wife died 15 years ago and for the first time since I have a desire to settle

down again. I recently turned 60, however, and lately I seem to have become

invisible to women. In the past, I’ve had plenty of romantic success. Although

I’ve never been what people call classically handsome, I’ve always been known

for my conversation and personality. I am trying not to be superficial, but I am

starting to worry that what looks I had are now fading and I am looking my

age more than I used to. Also, while I have acquired some wealth, these days it

does not seem to be enough.

I recently tried online dating, but the few women that responded to my

requests seemed uneducated or too elderly. I don’t mind women in my age

bracket or even 10 years younger than me, but these women were not the

potential companions I was looking for. I’m physically and emotionally

healthy, a normal weight, intelligent and hopefully interesting, and I want

those qualities in a partner. This new trend of being unnoticed by women

makes me a little concerned. I find myself dieting, going to the gym daily, even

buying a new wardrobe. I want to enhance my mating power without losing

the real me or trying too hard. I don’t want to come across as shallow or fake

just to catch the attention of a good woman.

— Rob

Dear Rob,

It’s not shallow to want to be noticed by women and possibly find a life partner.

Encouraging your self-esteem and seeking a positive self-outlook isn’t superficial

at all. I agree that you should not lose the real you by reinventing yourself just to

find a wife. But it’s fine to present yourself well and look put together. Self-care

can be a healthy expression and, if done in moderation, can be very attractive to

a woman. Do whatever makes you feel happy, gives you confidence and supports

your efforts to be the man you want to be. Do this for yourself, though, not just to

please someone else.

It’s not uncommon in the arena of online dating for “women of a certain age”

to ignore the profiles and photographs of “men of a certain age.” Make an effort to

bring new faces into your life by participating in ongoing social gatherings, like

classes or clubs, and welcome social introductions made by others. It’s also essential

to keep an open mind. You don’t have to marry a woman to enjoy her company

over coffee. She may be younger or older, less educated or have less money, and

still end up being a meaningful friend.

In my psychotherapy practice, I’ve had a number of women share what triggers

them positively and negatively when dating men. The following characteristics

have more to do with inner character and heart than appearance or chronological

age.

Women often talk about wanting a man who knows the difference between

being loving and being needy. Loving someone is feeling secure and being aware

of the other person’s needs and happiness as well as your own. Being insecurely

attached or needy is obsessively thinking about how your own needs aren’t being

fulfilled. When love feels good, worry and fear are minimized. Insecure attachments

are constantly anxious and there’s a tendency to oblige the other person

because of fears of abandonment.

Women like men who can stand up for themselves and their beliefs but who

don’t cause a lot of drama, put excessive pressure on them, complain too much, or

have too many problems. Women appreciate men who have their own lives (and

whose lives are in relative order); know how to enjoy life; have their own interests,

activities, and circle of friends; and are independent and emotionally mature.

Women want men who have their own purpose beyond being in a relationship.

They also appreciate men who are responsive and able to really listen to them and

respond to the moment between them, rather than being distracted or zoning out.

There are a lot of great women out there looking for a stable relationship. But

with or without a woman, you need to keep your sense of purpose, maintain

close-knit bonds with others, live fully and vitally, and find a source of inspiration

that is bigger than you. n

14TH ANNUAL LUMMIS DAYS FESTIVAL SPOTLIGHTS

THE AMAZING ARTISTS OF NORTHEAST LA

BY CARL KOZLOWSKI

Northeast Los Angeles is home to one of the most vibrant and

diverse arts scenes in the city, with a stunningly eclectic array

of music, dance, poetry, film, theatre, art and puppeteers

honing their crafts all year round. For the past 14 years, the threeday

Lummis Days Festival has brought them all together for a free,

fun-filled family-friendly celebration of artistic expression, with

this year’s edition taking place Friday through Sunday at numerous

locations.

“We’re really pleased to have some genre-busting artists performing

with psychedelic folk music, cumbia-billy and Africanjazz

fusion,” says Eliot Sekuler, the founder of the festival. “It helps

mix things up and redefines the boundaries. It’s a great weekend

of community-centered art and entertainment.”

Lummis Day takes its name from Charles Fletcher Lummis,

who joined the LA Times as the newspaper’s first city editor in

1884. A prolific writer and photographer, Lummis was also one of

the city’s first librarians, founded the Southwest Museum — the

first museum in Los Angeles — and helped introduce the concept

of multiculturalism to Southern California.

To that end, he preserved the old Spanish missions of Southern

California, published a literary magazine called Land Of Sunshine/

Out West, and was an adviser to President Theodore Roosevelt.

He hand-built El Alisal, aka Lummis Home, one of Northeast LA’s

most cherished cultural monuments, where he hosted a seminal

art salon. Lummis was an ardent advocate for the rights of Native

Americans, and was knighted by the King of Spain for his efforts

to promote Spanish speaking peoples and cultures.

The community-organized event will build on the festival’s

multicultural tradition with a pointedly eclectic mix of musical

performances. In addition to crowd-pleasing Afro-Cuban (Ricardo

Lemvo) and women’s mariachi (Mariachi Lindas

Mexicanas), the festival will present some interesting

hybrids: cumbia-billy (Moonlight Trio), folk-a-delic

(The Evangenitals), Mexican-South American-

African-Jazz fusion (El Haru Kuroi) and cowboy-pop

(Anderson Town). Over 20 musical acts will perform

on Lummis Days’ stages at Sycamore Grove Park

(Sunday) and Avenue 50 at York Boulevard (Saturday).

The 2019 festival will also feature an array of

diverse dance performances, puppet shows, activities

for kids, the Arroyo Arts Collective’s “Butterflies and

Bees: Beyond Borders” puppet parade and, at Occidental

College, a world festival premiere of the film

“Con Safos: Reflections of Life in the Barrio.” The

documentary chronicles the turbulent period from

1968 to 1972, in which the Lincoln Heights-based,

eponymous literary magazine provided a platform

for writers, poets, artists, cartoonists and photographers

who captured the experiences of the barrio

and the rumblings of the nascent Chicano movement.

The magazine resurfaced for four more issues in the

1990s before an FBI raid shut them down for good.

At Sycamore Grove Park, actors from the Independent

Shakespeare Co. will perform scenes from

best-loved plays in their signature audience-engaging

style. The annual poetry reading at Lummis Home

will feature acclaimed poet Sesshu Foster and will be

followed by a free poetry workshop.

The following are the Festival’s locations, dates

and activities:

From 7 to 9:30 p.m. Friday at Thorne Hall, Occidental

College (1600 Campus Road): The world

festival premiere screening of “Con Safos: Reflections

of Life in the Barrio,” will be followed by a

discussion with the filmmakers and founders of the

El Haru Kuroi

groundbreaking Chicano magazine referenced in the

film’s title.

From 5 to 9 p.m. Saturday on Avenue 50 at York

Boulevard, Highland Park: Music on “The Boulevard

Stage,” featuring four top Northeast LA indie bands

and entertainment by cirque-style performers.

From 10:30 a.m. to noon Sunday at the Lummis

Home in Montecito Heights: Poetry curated by Suzanne

Lummis and featuring poets Sesshu Foster and

Judith Terzi. From 12:30 to 2 p.m. a poetry workshop

led by William Archila will follow the reading.

From noon to 7 p.m. Sunday at Sycamore Grove

Park, 4702 N. Figueroa St.: Music, dance, theater,

puppets, many family activities, community tables

and food trucks.

In addition to the events organized by Lummis

Days, the Autry Museum of the American West is

presenting the California Art Club Paint/Sculpt-Out

at the nearby Southwest Museum. California Art Club

artists carry on the Arroyo Seco’s Plein Air tradition

with an outdoor paint/sculpt-out to create works

inspired by the Southwest Museum site’s views,

history, and architecture. The event takes place

Saturday and Sunday, June 1 and 2, from 10 a.m. to 2

p.m. Two other exhibits — “Four Centuries of Pueblo

Pottery” and “Making a Big Noise: The Explorations

of Charles Lummis” - will also be on view. Admission

is free. The Southwest Museum is open both

days until 4 p.m. A shuttle bus provided by the office

Los Angeles City Councilman Gill Cedillo will ferry

guests between festival locations and parking sites

on Sunday, June 2. n

in the Canyon,” the

big-hearted documentary

“Echo

from ex-Capitol Records

CEO Andrew Slater and Jakob

Dylan covering Laurel Canyon’s

legendary music community circa

1964-1967, opens with musicians

bantering about Rickenbacker

guitars, whose jangly sound revolutionized

1960s pop. The artists in

question are Jakob Dylan and Tom

Petty (in his last film interview),

and their camaraderie sets the tone

for Dylan’s subsequent interviews

with Jackson Browne, Eric Clapton,

David Crosby, Roger McGuinn,

Graham Nash, Michelle Phillips,

John Sebastian, Ringo Starr, Stephen

Stills, and Brian Wilson, who

are visibly more relaxed conversing

with a fellow artist than fielding

questions from some DocumentaryLand

talking head.

Dylan and Petty’s exchange

also underscores Slater’s essential

point that the film is “more about

the echo than the canyon” — an

echo still reverberating throughout

musician and songwriter communities

of Laurel, Beachwood and

Topanga Canyons, Eagle Rock and

Highland Park.

“The film celebrates Laurel

Canyon in the beginning, before

the onset of psychedelia and the

singer-songwriter era that’s most

18 PASADENA WEEKLY | 05.30.19

associated with it, Joni Mitchell

and the search for the individual,”

says Slater, who considers that

early period the “the age of innocence”

of California rock. “But it’s

really about the echo of those ideas

and that creativity that gave birth

to the music.”

During an interview he cites the

culture-shifting circle of influence

recounted in the film: Byrds frontman

Roger McGuinn saw George

Harrison playing a Rickenbacker

12-string, then got one himself and

electrified folk music. Harrison

heard the Byrds’ recording of Pete

Seeger’s “The Bells of Rhymney”

and wrote “If I Needed Someone”

for the Beatles’ “Rubber Soul”

album; Brian Wilson heard “Rubber

Soul” and composed the Beach

Boys’ “Pet Sounds”; and the Beatles

heard “Pet Sounds” and created

“Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club

Band.”

“That exchange of ideas, right

there, sets in motion the foundation

for pop music, rock music,

for the next 50 years,” Slater says.

“Then there’s the moment where

Stephen Stills tells you he wrote

this song ‘Questions’ because he

heard a song of Judy Collins’ called

‘Since You Asked,’ and then Eric

Clapton tells you that he heard

‘Questions’ and he wrote his first

single from his first record called

‘Let It Rain.’ While we all know

that conversation that people have

with themselves in their head when

they’re trying to create something,

the great thing about the film is

that it lays it out, and the people

who were actually creating this

music are telling you that, and in a

very personal way.”

“We were putting good poetry

on the radio, pop radio,” David

Crosby observes onscreen. Crosby

contributes several choice bon

mots (including the recordstraightening

admission that he

was kicked out of the Byrds for

“being an asshole,” not his notorious

drug abuse). He, Nash and

Stills figure in some of the most

engaging scenes, recalling Laurel

Canyon’s neighborly vibe. Mamas

and the Papas siren Michelle

Phillips, the lone representative of

Laurel Canyon’s women, tells some

of the zestiest stories.

“What made Laurel Canyon

cool is it wasn’t based around a

club,” notes guitarist Fernando

Perdomo, who as a kid was so “obsessed”

with Buffalo Springfield

and CSN&Y that he recorded himself

playing a “mock concert” of

Neil Young songs. He accompanies

Dylan in the film and appreciates

how the story is told from the musi-

cians’ perspective. “Laurel Canyon was a social network. All these people

would just gather at each other’s houses and say, ‘Hey, what are you up to?

Listen to this song I just wrote.’”

“Echo in the Canyon” strives to show that music’s legacy in action, with

concert performances by Dylan and guests Fiona Apple (a powerful “In

My Room”), Beck, Cat Power, Regina Spektor, and a sunny Jade Castrinos.

They aren’t all obvious Laurel Canyon offspring, but their affection for the

material is evident, and the house band (Perdomo, harmony singer Justine

Bennett, guitarists Erik Paparozzi and Geoff Pearlman, bassist Dan

Rothchild, keyboardist Jordan Summers, and drummer Matt Tecu) fully

commits to ’60s playing styles.

Slater, a respected producer for Dylan’s band the Wallflowers and

Apple, among others, initially planned to make a record. Then he saw

Jacques Demy’s 1969 film “Model Shop,” set in LA, and was unexpectedly

inspired to revisit places he loved and music that drew him here.

“Inside those songs were stories about whatever was going on, so I

wanted to find that, and find out what life was like,” he recalls. His project

swiftly evolved into a film centered around the trade of creative ideas

between Laurel Canyon’s artists.

Their community has been as essential to Laurel Canyon’s myth

as their widely beloved music. Songwriters jamming in each other’s

kitchens, writing of their love triangles … it’s reminiscent of painters

in 19th-century Paris. Do such productive enclaves demand geographic

proximity?

“Virtual community exists, because that’s how people are communicating

and interacting,” Slater says. “But I still say that to play music, more

often than not it’s about communicating through an instrument with other

people in the room. And that exchange of notes, ideas, verse, is the thing

that becomes the soundtrack to our lives. That’s happening everywhere

[although] the bridge to that stuff becoming a national or a mainstream

culture movement may be broken.”

“Music happens at a particular moment in time, and changes everything

going forward,” Jackson Browne says in the film. Producer Lou

Adler entertainingly compares the Laurel Canyon scene to 1940s movie

stars, who they tried to emulate. Petty, to whom the film is dedicated,

opines that dreamers are allowed in LA “because people believe it might

be possible to do something that’s not ordinary.”

The most telling moment, one that crystallizes the film’s intent and the

threads of community binding musicians across generations, occurs in a

studio. As Phillips listens to playback of Dylan’s recording of a Mamas and

the Papas song, he quietly watches her emotional response. It is a sweet

scene, warm and sincere, and their mutual gratitude expresses all that

needs to be said. n

FROM THE BEGINNING, THE BAND VENICE, PERFORMING SATURDAY AT THE ROSE IN PASADENA, HAS ROCKED

HOUSES RANGING FROM INTIMATE THEATER SHOWS TO HUGE FESTIVALS ALL AROUND THE US AND EUROPE.

The band’s sound, influenced by the culturally diverse communities of the beach town that gives it its name, is one that

is at the same time familiar and fresh, with influences from classic rock and folk.

Venice, according to Wikipedia, was started in Venice in 1977 by cousins Michael Lennon and Kipp Lennon. Michael’s

brother Mark joined the band in 1978, followed by Kipp’s brother Pat in 1980. Kipp and Pat are two of 11 siblings, and are

younger brothers of the Lennon Sisters. Michael and Mark are two of 13 siblings.

Notable for tight harmonies, personal lyrics and infusing its live shows with a high-energy communal feel, Venice

draws boisterous ovations and calls for encores wherever the band performs.

Their latest album is “Jacaranda.Street.”

Visit venicetheband.com. — John Sollenberger

Doors open at 6 p.m. and Venice plays at 9 p.m. Saturday at The Rose, 245 E. Green St., Pasadena. Tickets are $24 to $44. Call

PW OPINION PW NEWS PW LIFE PW ARTS

•FILM•

BY CARL KOZLOWSKI

Few rock stars have had as big an impact on the world stage as

Elton John, who has had more than 50 Top 40 hits and sold 300

million records since breaking out nearly 50 years ago. He’s also

had a life story that few can match, with epic battles with sex, drugs and

alcohol along the way to worldwide fame and fortune before finally finding

true love and sobriety in the early 1990s.

The new film “Rocketman” depicts a surprisingly unflinching

portrayal of these struggles, with Taron Egerton of “The Kingsmen” spy

comedies delivering a stunning performance as the musical legend. Following

on the heels of the massive success of “Bohemian Rhapsody” and

its depiction of Queen lead singer Freddie Mercury’s similarly troubled

life, it hopefully will help build a trend of more musical biopics.

The movie opens with the stunning visual of a bloated, middle-aged

Elton John (Taron Egerton) wearing an elaborate red devil costume

with horns on his head and feathered wings. Writer Pete Bell and director

Dexter Fletcher (who took over the troubled production of “Rhapsody”)

aren’t setting up a celebration of devilish excess, however.

Rather, Elton is entering an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting, and

his devil costume is a symbol of how corrupted he feels inside, openly

admitting that he’s a sex addict, drug addict, alcoholic and bulimic. Moments

later, he sees a vision of himself as a five-year-old boy (with his

birth name of Reginald Dwight), and as he starts singing one of his

classic pop songs, Elton busts out of the meeting with his fellow addicts

and group leader running behind, dancing through the streets of his

childhood.

This dazzling opening has the silly charm and rock and roll energy

of the classic musical “Grease,” and it establishes quickly that this will

be no ordinary biopic. Hall and Fletcher have conceived a musical

fantasy style for the movie, which bounces back and forth between the

anguished confessions Elton makes in his group meeting and various

periods of his childhood and adult rise to fame.

The core emotional impact of the movie lies in Elton’s quest for

love, as heartbreakingly shown as his 10-year-old self sings his lateperiod

ballad “I Want Love” after his emotionally distant father tells him

not to tap his fingers on the family dinner table. In a brilliant move, each

family member including his father, his condescending and careless

mother, and his saintly grandmother sings a verse, revealing the inner

pain that made them turn out the way they are.

Salvation comes in the form of music, as young Reginald is seen

Shine a Light

‘ROCKETMAN’ OFFERS AN EMOTIONALLY POWERFUL AND HUGELY

ENTERTAINING LOOK AT THE LIFE OF ELTON JOHN

playing classical masterpieces by ear from age 5, with his grandma

encouraging his artistry all the way to receiving a scholarship from the

Royal Academy of Music. As he learns to properly compose, he is told by

a record executive that he should put lyrics to his beautiful tunes — but

he can’t think of anything to say.

The exec hands him an envelope full of songwriter Bernie Taupin’s

lyrics and tells him try to write music for them. Thus, a 50-year magical

partnership is born, with the heterosexual Bernie (Jamie Bell) providing

the platonic love and acceptance that Reginald (who renames himself

Elton John after a bandmate named Elton and John Lennon) never had

before.

That friendship gives him newfound confidence, and soon they are

on a rapid rise to worldwide fame and fortune. But Elton finds that material

wealth doesn’t bring happiness, as he can’t seem to find a strong

relationship while his fellow homosexual manager (Richard Madden)

lures him into an affair that’s manipulative and shallow.

Continually rejected by his parents no matter how successful he

becomes, Elton falls into a horrible cocaine and alcohol addiction.

Through another of the movie’s innovative musical fantasies, Elton is

seen symbolically engaged in a life of drug-fueled orgies that only end

when he winds up overdosing and in need of rehab. From there, he has

to find the way to true forgiveness, happiness and love.

As Elton, Egerton (“Eggsy” in “The Kingsman” movies) does a

phenomenal job, setting himself up for an Oscar to match the one given

to actor Rami Malek for his portrayal of Freddie Mercury in “Rhapsody.”

His performance is an emotional rollercoaster of extreme highs and

lows, but is always underpinned by a heartbreaking wish for true acceptance

and love.

Jamie Bell as Bernie Taupin is also outstanding, and the movie’s

depiction of their friendship is an excellent example of brotherly love

that stands true through myriad crises. With 20 of Elton John’s greatest

hits used in endlessly inventive musical numbers, the film is incredibly

entertaining as well as a deeply emotional experience.

While much hype has been made of the fact that “Rocketman” sought

an R rating and depicts Elton in gay sex scenes, the movie is actually

pretty discreet and brief with these portrayals. Like “Rhapsody,” this is a

film that teens and adults can easily enjoy together. n

“ROCKETMAN”: A

CAPSULE REVIEWS

BY CARL KOZLOWSKI

MA

Stars: Octavia Spencer, Diana Silvers,

Juliette Lewis

Length: 99 minutes

Directed by: Tate Taylor

Rating: R

The latest comedic horror film from the usually

reliable Blumhouse (“Get Out,” “Split”) stars Oscarwinner

Octavia Spencer as a mysterious small-town

woman who invites teens to party in her house on

the edge of town, but turns out to have malevolent

intentions. The first half is pretty fun, but the last

half hour’s logic collapses and the film becomes an

ugly mess.

Grade: D

JOHN WICK 3:

PARABELLUM

Stars: Keanu Reeves

Length: 131 minutes

Directed by: Chad Stahelski

Rating: R

The third time’s the charm, as Reeves returns as the

world’s greatest hitman, dashing across New York

while fighting off seemingly hundreds of assassins

eager to take him down for a $14 million bounty. You

really don’t even have to know the prior two films in

the series to understand this – the movie has nearly

wall to wall, brutal but nonetheless funny action.

Grade: A

BOOKSMART

Stars: Beanie Feldstein, Kaitlyn Dever

Length: 102 minutes

Directed by: Olivia Wilde

Rating: R

This gender-flipped ripoff of 2007’s smash hit

“Superbad” follows two brainiac girls trying to

experience four years of partying in their final night

before graduation. The actors are appealing talents

mired in a cesspool of terrible behavior that is not

only clichéd by now but tries to shred the envelope

of good taste. Opening weekend bombed, so it’s

clear that thankfully kids these days don’t relate to

this. Grade: D

THE BIGGEST LITTLE FARM

Stars: John Chester, Molly Chester

Length: 91 minutes

Directed by: John Chester

Rating: PG

This documentary focusing on a real-life couple who

gave up cramped living in Santa Monica to restore

seemingly dead land in Ventura County, and the

eight-year process that resulted in a modern-day

Garden of Eden, is absolutely riveting and stunning

to behold. Highly recommended for the whole family.

Grade: A

LONGSHOT

Stars: Charlize Theron, Seth Rogen,

O’Shea Jackson

Length: 130 minutes

Directed by: Jonathan Levine

Rating: R

This romantic comedy has a lot more on its mind

than the usual genre film, as Theron plays the US

Secretary of State who hires Rogen – a journalist

who’s been in love with her since junior high – as

her speechwriter. As they travel the world facing

both funny and serious crises, a smart romance

that also deals with issues of personal ethics and

compromise in a profound way unfolds. This is my

favorite movie of the year so far.

Grade: A

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 PROP-

ERTY 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

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

DERS: If you are considering bidding on this

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
