FREEDOM FROM FEAR

It was Saturday morning. As

usual, I was driving my children

to Chinatown for them to attend

Chinese language school. The

ABC radio station cut through

programming to report live

from Beijing. The reporter was

in Tiananmen Square and the

loudspeaker was on. Suddenly

he said the lights in the square

were turned off and tracer bullets

shot across the square. People

were running and there were the

sounds of gunfire; he had to get

out but then the radio station

didn’t carry his voice anymore,

just sounds of people coming

through.

Tears streamed down my face. Surely I should have expected that

the pro-democracy movement would end with repression but with

weeks of following the news from China, I willed myself to believe

that finally China would change.

My 10-year-old daughter asked, “Mama, what is happening?” I

answered weakly, “They are getting rid of the students.” I feared

the worst. After Chinese school, we went to the Chinese Consulate.

There were some Chinese students from Hong Kong with their

microphone and many others from the community. Older Chinese-

Americans brought water and paper cups. We exchanged phone numbers.

A reporter was talking to my elder daughter. That evening, the

local news showed the reporter asking my daughter if she knew what

was going on. She answered: “The people in China want freedom.”

A week later, on a Monday morning, the radio station reported

about a replica of the goddess of democracy statue that was crushed

in Tiananmen Square and appeared in front of Los Angeles City Hall

on a pedestrian bridge. Tom VanSant and members of Visual Artists

Guild had built the 23 feet tall replica of the statue. As VanSant

attended the City Hall meeting that morning to gain approval for

the statue, a 4.5 earthquakestruck.

The statue did not

tumble down and the city subsequently

allowed the statue to

stay for a month.

Thirty years have now

passed. My daughters have now

grown and have families of their

own.

Still we remember.

We remember those who

perished; we remember those

who disappeared; we remember

those still imprisoned; we remember

those who were forced

into exile.

For a short shining moment

in the spring of 1989, the

people in China, inspired by

the students, suddenly found

themselves speaking the truth,

expressing their own China

dream.

It was then that they gave

each other a precious gift, a gift

of freedom, the freedom from

fear.

May we continue to share

that gift.

Glendale Water & Power

(GWP) is reminding customers

that metallic or mylar balloons

and power lines do not mix.

Power outages caused by mylar

balloons coming into contact

with power lines are on a record

pace. Last month Glendale residents

experienced two power

outages related to mylar balloons.

A total of 3,055 customers

were out of power for about 44

minutes. Two other reports of

mylar balloons in power lines

were reported and crews cleared

them before any additional

power outages resulted.

The months of May and June

are when most outages related

to metallic balloons occur due

to Mother’s Day, Father’s Day

and graduation celebrations.

GWP urges customers to make

sure balloons are always tied to

a weight, as required by California

law, and to never release

them outdoors. “Outages caused

by these metallic balloons are

frustrating for our customers

and can also cause a lot of damage

to our system. It takes time

to safely remove balloons from

the power lines, restore power,

and repair any damage they may

have caused,” stated Steve Zurn,

general manager of Glendale

Water and Power.

The safest metallic balloon

is a secured one. Only properly

weighted balloons should be

sold to customers, and buyers

should never remove the balloon

weights. Releasing metallic balloons

is a risk to public safety.

Serious injuries and property

damage can occur when the balloon

contact is severe enough to

bring down power lines.

To prevent outages and

injuries, GWP recommends the

safety tips below for handling

metallic balloons:

• Do not attempt to retrieve

a balloon or any object tangled

in power lines. Instead call

(818) 548-2011 to report the

problem.

• Never tie a metallic balloon

to a person’s wrist. If the balloon

contacts electricity, it can

travel through the balloon and

into the person, causing serious

injury or death.

• Never attach streamers to

any latex or metallic balloon.

• When done with balloons,

puncture them several times

or cut the knot and throw them

in the garbage to prevent them

from floating away.

• If you see a downed power

line, stay away and call 911 immediately.

•GUEST OPINION•

BY TERRY TORNEK

WRONG ANSWER

PUNISHING CITIES THAT PLAN IN GOOD FAITH

IS NOT THE SOLUTION TO OUR HOUSING CRISIS

The city of Pasadena opposed the most current version of Senate Bill 50, which

would have completely removed density limits and increased building heights

along our major corridors, while eliminating single-family zoning citywide. These

changes would have amounted to a statewide rezoning without any consideration of

local context, growth planning strategies, or public outreach. That is why I am thankful

that state Sen. Anthony Portantino, who represents Pasadena and our neighboring

cities, did the right thing by putting SB 50 on hold so work can continue to improve the

bill to the point where it does not punish cities that have taken initiative to encourage

housing.

To be clear, the people of Pasadena are acutely aware of the statewide housing crisis,

and acknowledge that cities must take significant steps to encourage housing production

and affordability. The effects of the housing crisis are felt locally, with steadily increasing

rents, homes that are unaffordable to the general workforce, and a high number of people

experiencing homelessness. In response, Pasadena has taken important steps to address

these issues in a balanced manner.

Pasadena’s recently updated General Plan has reaffirmed our dedication to the

establishment of vibrant, mixed-use “transit villages,” with allowed densities ranging up

to 87 dwelling units per acre, floor area ratios up to 3.0, and heights ranging from 40 to

75 feet in areas closest to our six light-rail stations. Since January 2014, Pasadena has

approved over 2,700 new residential units, and an additional 2,600 new residential units

are currently under review. These projects have resulted in the issuance of permits for

nearly four times Pasadena’s regional allocation for above-moderate income units, and we

continue to make meaningful progress toward meeting our allocations for lower income

households. Furthermore, 87 percent of the new residential units that have been approved

since 2014, as well as 67 percent of the new units currently under review, are within a half

mile of a transit station.

And our efforts haven’t stopped there. Less than a year ago, our City Council

passed an ordinance that makes it easier for motels to be converted to permanent

supportive housing. Pasadena has also had an inclusionary housing ordinance since

2001, which requires new multi-family projects to set aside 15 percent of units for

low- and moderate-income households, and is currently studying ways to incentivize

additional production of affordable units beyond our current requirements. Finally,

the City Council recently instructed staff to take the necessary steps to approve a 70-

unit, mixed use permanent supportive housing project to serve homeless seniors on

city-owned land.

While Pasadena’s efforts are by no means perfect and continual evaluation and selfreflection

are always needed, it must be underscored that none of these achievements

could have been possible without community consensus for these policies, achieved only

after many years of analysis, environmental review, and engaging in robust dialogue with

the community through countless public outreach efforts. The resulting long-term vision

— and the related goals, policies, standards and guidelines — have ultimately led to the

development of an unprecedented amount of new housing units within walking distance

of transit stations in Pasadena, while balancing that growth with the preservation of our

single-family neighborhoods.

However, the provisions of SB 50 undermine the many efforts that Pasadena and other

cities have undertaken as part of a more holistic community planning strategy, rendering

the local planning process meaningless. While many of the steps we have taken are

generally consistent with the proposed density and height waivers in SB 50, Pasadena’s

vision goes beyond simply placing housing near stations. It recognizes that quality places

consist of complementary uses, including housing, jobs, retail, and other amenities, as

well as thoughtful urban design and transit connectivity. That is why our high-density

zones also include provisions for mixed-use, live/work, height averaging, and height

transitions.

I recognize that not all cities have made the same efforts to produce affordable

housing or embraced land use policies that encourage transit-oriented development.

Many cities across California remain out of compliance with their housing elements and

actively discourage development of new housing altogether, let alone affordable housing.

Many cities have also done little to plan for and incentivize increased density near

transit service, and a state-mandated measure may be needed to address these cities. A

problem as complex as the housing crisis deserves an equally sophisticated solution. Any

attempt to establish statewide zoning needs to be much more thoughtful than the blunt

approach offered by recently proposed legislation. The city of Pasadena is thankful to Sen.

Portantino for not allowing SB 50 to move forward in its current form and looks forward

to working toward legislation that does not destroy community planning. ■

CALTECH AND PCC TO HOLD

GRADUATION CEREMONIES

With local high schools conducting their graduations

last month, now is the time for all local upperlevel

graduates to receive their diplomas, with

both Caltech and Pasadena City College holding

commencement ceremonies on Friday, June 14.

At Caltech, about 500 students will receive

their diplomas at a ceremony set for 10 a.m. at

Beckman Hall, 1200 E. California Blvd. Expected

to address the graduates is Dr. France Córdova, a

1979 alumnus of Caltech who is an astrophysicist

and administrator who serves as director of the

National Science Foundation. In 1993, Córdova

became the first woman and youngest chief

scientist at NASA.

At PCC, some 1,200 graduates will participate

in the annual commencement at 7 p.m. in Robinson

Stadium, 1570 E. Colorado Blvd.

Giving that school’s address will be local artist

and ArtCenter College of Design alumnus Simon

Silva.

Although all students graduate in one ceremony,

PCC celebrates its minority graduates in

separate events. PCC’s Black Graduation, which

acknowledges the work of each black graduate, was

held on May 31 in the school’s Creveling Lounge.

Latinx Graduation, which recognizes the work

of diverse bilingual students, was also held last

Friday, only in Sexson Auditorium.

Silva, whose work represents his Mexican-

American upbringing and heritage, earned his

associate’s degree from Imperial Valley College

and then went on to earn his bachelor of fine arts

degree in illustration from ArtCenter College of

Design in Pasadena.

Due to limited seating, PCC’s ceremony is a

ticketed event. Each graduating student will be

issued four tickets to provide for friends, family

and supporters. PCC will also be live-streaming the

ceremony for any guests who are unable to attend.

Caltech’s graduation will be held on a firstcome,

first-served basis with no tickets required.

The ceremony will also be live-streamed on

Caltech’s website.

Local high school students marched in graduation

ceremonies in Pasadena last month.

The ceremonies kicked off on May 24 when

OFFICIALS AT SANTA ANITA RACETRACK

REFUSE TO CANCEL REMAINDER OF

MEET AFTER TWO MORE HORSES PUT

DOWN

BY ANDRÉ COLEMAN

Despite the deaths of two more horses last weekend at

Santa Anita Park, officials have refused to cancel the final

two weeks of racing at the track.

“It is our understanding that Santa Anita management,

after consultation with certain other industry stakeholders, believes that for a variety

of reasons, the future of California racing is best served by continuing to race,’”

the California Horse Racing Board (CHRB) said in a prepared statement.

The call to suspend the meet came after the horses Formal Dude and Truffalino

were euthanized on June 8 and June 9, respectively, after collapsing during their

races. Formal Dude suffered a fall that led to irreparable injuries. Truffalino suffered

a heart attack, according to ESPN.

The latest two incidents bring the total number of horses put down to 29 since

December. The meet, or the season of events, is scheduled to end on June 23.

However, the CHRB does not have the authority to suspend racing without the

approval of the track operator or holding a public meeting that requires a notice of

10 days.

On Monday, Sen. Dianne Feinstein again called for suspending horse racing at

Santa Anita. Feinstein first called for the meet to end in late May. The Los Angeles

Times has also called for suspension of racing at the track.

“Either the rules aren’t strong enough or the rules aren’t being followed,” said

Kathy Guillermo, senior vice president of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals

(PETA). “But whatever the reason for the deaths of two more horses, Santa

Anita needs to listen to the California Horse Racing Board and shut down. It should

not re-open until full-leg scan equipment is in place, since most pelvis injuries also

show lesions in the legs; the dirt track has been replaced with a safer synthetic

surface; and the district attorney’s investigation into trainers and veterinarians is

complete.”

PETA has already called for an end to horseracing in California, and Gov. Gavin

Newsom has said he supports Senate bill 469, authored Sen. Bill Dodd (D-Napa),

which would make it easier to suspend horse racing at a given venue.

The track closed briefly after the 21st horse died in March and officials put new

safety protocols in place to protect the horses, including banning race-day medication,

increasing transparency of veterinary records, further regulating approval for

workouts, and increasing reviews of the track’s surface. Also after the death of the

21st horse, LA County District Attorney Jackie Lacey opened an investigation into

the deaths, which is ongoing.

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. n

COMING TOGETHER

AFRICAN SISTER CITY DELEGATION TO

VISIT PASADENA

BY ANDRÉ COLEMAN

Pasadena officials will lay out the red carpet for the

mayor of Pasadena’s first African sister city next week.

Mayor Alioune Ndoye and dignitaries of Dakar-

Plateau in the Republic of Senegal will visit the Pasadena

City Council at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, June 17, during the

council’s meeting in City Hall, 100 N. Garfield Ave.

To commemorate the occasion, Pasadena Mayor Terry Tornek is holding a

Mayor Alioun Ndoye

reception for Ndoye and his delegation from 4 to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, June 18, in the

City Hall courtyard.

Councilman John Kennedy called Ndoye a man of integrity and a visionary.

“The city of Pasadena is overjoyed to welcome its first sister city on the

continent of Africa where so many African Americans have historical roots,”

Kennedy said.

Ndoye and other dignitaries, who will take part in discussions about commerce

and business during their time in Pasadena, will also visit schools, museums,

cultural centers, a historical church, Caltech, Tournament House and the Rose

Bowl.

The Pasadena City Council unanimously approved the city’s first African city

sister in August.

Dakar-Plateau, Senegal joins Ludwigshafen, Germany; Mishima, Japan;

Järvenpää, Finland; Vanadzor, Armenia; and Xicheng District in Beijing, China as a

Pasadena sister city.

Dakar-Plateau has a population of nearly 37,000. The city is less than two

square miles and serves as the political, financial and commercial center of the

country’s capital of greater Dakar.

In 1956, President Dwight D. Eisenhower founded the Sister Cities Program to

reach global peace and tolerance through a people-to-people concept of linking US

cities with foreign communities around the world.

Currently, 1,060 US cities have sister city ties with more than 1,900 cities in

120 nations. Pasadena formalized its Sister Cities chapter in 1960. n

fine arts program. The college has inked a 10-year

lease on the space for $1 per year.

The move adds an element of both excitement

and uncertainty in the city’s Historic Core.

ArtCenter leaders describe the deal for the 6,250

square feet of space on the ground floor and

mezzanine levels of the building as a unique

opportunity.

ArtCenter’s initial agreement last year was

described as a way to provide financial support for

the museum in exchange for some display space.

Provost Karen Hofmann said that the kind of

contemporary programming that had been under

way in the space fit with the institution’s goals.

“We were doing lots of things we saw as mutually

beneficial outreach that would be better if we could

be on the ground in

Downtown LA, and

engage the city and

Southern California

as a whole rather

than from just

being in Pasadena,”

Hofmann said.

“Going Clear,”

which will be up

for a month, will

help the college

gauge how best to

use the downtown

space, according

to Hofmann.

An exploratory

committee is

evaluating the

options for the Hellman Building long term.

Hofmann said the space will hold a mix

of exhibitions and classes for ArtCenter’s

undergraduate and graduate programs. It will also

be the site of ArtCenter Expansion, a program the

college runs that offers educational and workshop

opportunities to the public.

ArtCenter DTLA replaces the Main Museum.

That project, originally announced in 2014, was

Tom Gilmore and his business partner Jerri

Perrone’s plan to transform the Hellman Building

and the adjacent Farmers and Merchant’s Bank

building, as well as a parking structure, into a

multilevel contemporary art museum, complete

with a rooftop sculpture garden. Architect Tom

Wiscombe had been hired to handle designs.

The first component, dubbed the “Beta Main,”

opened in October 2016. A small staff was hired

and there was a lineup of well-regarded shows,

including ones that engaged the local creative

community. However, further plans never

materialized. The December closure caught many

in downtown unawares.

When asked for comment, a representative for

Gilmore said that he would not be speaking about

the deal with ArtCenter, and referred questions to

the school.

ArtCenter joins other higher-education options

in downtown Los Angeles. Cal State Los Angeles

has an outpost at Eighth Street and Grand

depot at Third Street and Santa Fe Avenue.

ArtCenter was founded in 1930, and originally

called Los Angeles home. It relocated to Pasadena

in 1976, where it operates two campuses.

Local leaders predict that ArtCenter’s

expansion into downtown will benefit the wider

neighborhood. Blair Besten, executive director of

the Historic Core Business Improvement District,

said having the college in the area long term will

continue the momentum of the local arts scene,

which has seen arrivals in recent years including

the Hauser & Wirth

Lall said.

ArtCenter operates multiple exhibition galleries

for students and faculty at its Pasadena campuses.

Hofmann said the downtown outpost will be “more

experimental” than those galleries. She said that

ArtCenter admired the Main Museum’s mission to

showcase local contemporary artists and wants to

carry on that goal.

The Old Bank District location also puts

students near downtown’s main galleries, as well

as events such as the monthly Art Walk.

“I think there’s a desire from a student

perspective,” Hofmann said. “If I’m an artist,

especially at the graduate level, I want to see my

work out in the world in a meaningful way, and

this helps us enable and empower our students to

Hofmann said ArtCenter will evaluate the space

over the next few months, and will then roll out a

calendar of classes, exhibitions and programming

for ArtCenter DTLA for 2020-2021. n

MAKING

A

DIFFERENCE

FILMMAKER STEVEN SNEED HITS THE

STREETS OF PASADENA TO FIND THOSE

MOST AFFECTED BY GANG VIOLENCE

STORY AND PHOTOS BY PATRICIA CUNLIFFE

To some, Pasadena represents wealth, mansions, galas, financial and educational

opportunity, annual parades and nationally televised football games. In

this world of “old money,” fine dining is a nightly affair and trips to a local live

theater of choice in the family Jaguar are regular events.

To a growing number of others, however, Pasadena, especially Northwest Pasadena,

is a lattice of mean, often deadly streets where a person has to think long and

hard before calling the police because they don’t know if they’ll get shot, get help or

end up in prison.

This is the same neighborhood where people open up convenience stores that

sell malt liquor and individual cigarettes to minors and keep loaded guns behind

the counter. The same neighborhood that the more affluent part of the community

seems to have forgotten about or have turned their backs on when it comes to allocating

resources that will benefit the inhabitants of that area.

Is it any wonder that kids raised in a society that makes them feel as if they do

not matter would gravitate toward an environment that makes them feel as if they

do — whether or not that welcoming place is one that is positive.

Steven Sneed, 39, has worked with local youth since he was 19. As a child growing

up in Pasadena, his own life was impacted greatly by gang violence — he’s lost

friends and family to the justice system and witnessed the murder of a man. After

surviving many close encounters with gang culture, he made a conscious decision

to dedicate his life to intervention work with youth.

In 2017, Sneed was a districtwide intervention specialist with the Pasadena

Unified School District, participating in a Positive Connections Mentoring Program

at Jackson, Franklin and Madison Elementary schools, and at Washington Middle

School. Sneed also created a gang prevention presentation for Washington and

Elliott Middle schools, Rose City High School and four classes during the Skills

Summer Program.

“A lot of the students were excited and came to me afterward and spoke about

some of the things that they had gone through,” Sneed says, “It made me feel that

what I was doing was actually needed.”

So when his position ended abruptly, due to budget cuts, he decided to take an

inventory of friends with skills and resources to help determine what his next move

might be. As he explains, “I didn’t want my efforts to die with the position. I felt that

the passion was bigger than the job, and I wanted to continue my efforts.”

In that journey, Sneed realized that he had many intelligent friends who are

educators, producers, engineers and songwriters. “I started to think about how to

bring all those together to create one thing.” Sneed recalls, “I woke up and thought,

I’m going to make a movie.”

And that’s exactly what he did.

MAKING A DIFFERENCE

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 09

As executive producer and director, Sneed recruited Jason Hardin of Hardway

Enterprise and Michael Towns to join the team as co-producers; Frank Gibbs,

Thomas Bunn and Brian Biery as associate producers; music supervisors Paco

Swartz and James Broadway; and drone operators DeAndre Weir and Dale Harrell

to join in the no-budget project. All were intent not on making money but creating

awareness, bringing people together through open dialogue and hearing different

perspectives about the impact of gang violence in Pasadena.

“The reality is that a large portion of the residents of Pasadena have no idea

that we have had a serious gang problem over decades, so it is very important

to share that story. In addition, the stark reality of the challenging social and

economic conditions that contribute to gang activity are generally overlooked or

brushed over,” states Biery, co-founder of Pasadena Neighborhood Leadership

Institute. “With this backdrop in mind, when Steven Sneed approached me to participate

in the project I immediately thought it was a fantastic idea. Documentary

films can have great power to shape societal consciousness through story-telling

and Steven had a clear vision of what story he wanted to follow and ultimately

tell.”

“Pasadena: Exploring Solutions to Reduce Gang Violence,” a true labor of love

which took 10 months to complete, has screened at the Laemmle Playhouse 7

Theatre, the Jackie Robinson Center, the Pasadena Civic Auditorium and most

recently at Pasadena City College. Principal photography was by Steven Sneed, Jason

Hardin and Michael Towns. The film was edited by Sneed, Towns and Thomas

Bunn.

This is not just another documentary filled with studies and statistics, utilizing

overdone effects and graphics to hold your attention. This film goes into the

streets and talks to people who are actively involved in every capacity, on all

sides of the issue. The stories make you sad, they make you angry, but the film

also makes you hopeful. In fact, the Pasadena Police Department might do well to

consider using this film as a training tool to aid in overcoming the excessive use

of violence on people of color.

One thought expressed in the film was that when we look at a “gang” problem,

we tend to dehumanize those involved, as if they are no longer people. We need

to look at them as people first and to make sure that they have opportunities to

aspire well beyond a gang lifestyle.

“Our youngsters are crying for help. I feel that they want the help but don’t

know how to ask,” says Jonni Sykes-Flemings, a community member in the

medical field who was in attendance at the PCC screening, “I think people just

don’t know how to help. So if we come together as a group, I feel that things can

change.”

Most importantly, this film does offer solutions. Frankly, it boils down to opportunity

and caring. These kids need people to listen and talk to them; they need

positive things to do; they need accessible resources that will prepare them for

a successful and productive life; and they need positive role models. We cannot

continue along the same path and expect different results.

True to his words: “I didn’t get into filmmaking to get the accolades for being

a filmmaker. I really made this film to make a difference,” Sneed says, closing the

film by providing a list of resources for anyone wishing to become a mentor, and a

final assertion that “We can make a difference.”

Hopefully, this film will screen many more times in Pasadena and I urge

everyone to make an effort to see it. Hopefully, it will make viewers want to get

involved and really make a difference in young people’s lives.■

CAFÉ SANTORINI, PASADENA’S

FAVORITE MEDITERRANEAN

RESTAURANT, REMAINS A

LOCAL DINING STAPLE

BY EVELYN GARCIA I PHOTOS BY DANNY LIAO

For the past month or so I have been

on a Mediterranean kick, ordering it

for lunch or on the weekends at least

once a week. There is a Mediterranean

place near my work that has great food,

although overpriced and not the most

authentic, and a small restaurant near my

home that is just not conveniently close

enough. Since I have been relentless about

having it any chance I can, I decided to

visit one of the best in the city.

Cafe Santorini is one of the best known

and most loved restaurants in Pasadena,

having won Best Mediterranean Food in

last year’s Best of Pasadena edition. As

many regulars or those who’ve had the

pleasure to go at least once know, that

came as no surprise. The food is great, the

staff is beyond friendly, and the outdoor

patio is so charming not many places in

close vicinity can top it.

To get into the restaurant there is

a small door leading up to a narrow

staircase, which opens up to the main

dining area. There is a bar just to the

left of entering, a hostess at the end of

the room, and quiet, intimate dinners

happening all around. Luckily there was

no wait, so our hostess took us straight

to the balcony area which we were

pleased about because it was a beautiful

evening, and it seemed to be a little louder

outdoors. My friend and I decided at the

last minute that we’d stop by that evening,

so we rushed over in our casual clothing

— not realizing several groups were there

in celebration of something or on a date, and thus

were slightly more dressed up. Despite that, we

didn’t feel uncomfortable or as if we had walked

into the Chateau Marmont in workout attire.

As soon as we were seated we were brought

water and a few minutes later a bread basket. Our

waitress was friendly, helping us decide on our

starters: Borek and spanakopita ($13) and stuffed

grape leaves ($10). The borek and spanakopita

was easily our favorite of the two and one of our

favorite dishes that night. Both are filled pastries,

the borek stuffed with a blend of cheeses, mint

and sesame seeds, and the spanakopita filled

with onions, spinach and feta. To be honest, I

couldn’t even focus on which was which, they

were both equally amazing and well worth

ordering as shareable appetizers.

For our entrees, my friend ordered the

Santorini pizza ($16) and I wanted to have

something tried and true, a staple dish: the

grilled chicken kebab plate ($20). The Santorini

pizza was amazing, with beef soujouk sausage,

tomatoes, onions, mozzarella cheese, goat

cheese and fresh mint. While I’m not the biggest

fan of mint, even I have to admit it really added

something to the cheeses and pulled the different

flavors together beautifully. My chicken kebob

plate was just as I was hoping — perfectly

seasoned chicken, delicious rice (my favorite

part), and grilled onions, tomatoes and bell

peppers grilled to perfection as well. The dish

also came with hummus and pita (my second

favorite part) and there was enough left over to

take home for lunch the next day, which, by the

way, was not my plan at all.

Cafe Santorini has a happy hour, and since

we missed it that day, we already have plans to

go back and take advantage of it. It goes from 4-7

p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 4-6 p.m. on

Fridays, serving draft beer, well brands, sangria,

wines, as well as specialty cocktails and martinis

all between $6 and $7. The happy hour food menu

(all $6 each) consists of shrimp curry, hummus

and pita, grilled calamari, saffron clams,

and soujouk sausage mini flatbread, which is

essentially the Santorini pizza in a small flatbread

version minus the mozzarella. Happy hour is only

served at the bar, but well worth it.

Other notable dishes that I saw whisk by or

looked inviting on the menu were the Moroccan

lamb shank ($32), braised with dried fruit,

balsamic vinegar and served with couscous;

the risotto with wild mushrooms ($21), which

is gluten-free and vegetarian; and the shrimp

capellini al checca ($23), served with angel hair

pasta tossed with diced tomatoes, garlic, scallions,

chili flakes and basil and served with jumbo

shrimp. Several dishes on the menu are marked if

they are vegetarian, gluten-free, or vegan, so it’s

easy for patrons to know what they can order in

spite of dietary restrictions. No matter what, Cafe

Santorini doesn’t skip out on the flavor.

They even have two banquet rooms for special

occasions or larger events. The Rococo room is

the larger of the two, seating up to 150 guests,

and the Mezzanine, which seats up to 25 people.

Cafe Santorini celebrated their 25th anniversary

this past year, and it’s clear that in the time

they have been in Pasadena they have become a

perfect setting for any occasion.

COLD FEET

PROSPECTIVE GROOM

MUST FIGURE OUT WHAT’S

CAUSING HIS

PRE-WEDDING JITTERS

Dear Patti,

My name is Brian. I’m 35, never been married, have a solid career, and

own my own home. On June 21, the first day of summer, I’m getting married.

Until I met Samantha (I call her Sam), I wasn’t sure if I would ever get

married. But Sam is truly an amazing woman, one that I respect and admire

and love being with. I know she’ll be a fabulous mother and for the first time

in my life, I’m looking forward to having a family.

However, as we get closer to the wedding, I’m starting to have serious

doubts. I get these sudden bursts of panic and feel like running far away.

While I love Sam and can’t imagine my life without her, I get concerned that

I might not feel this way forever. People change, and the idea of making a

commitment to one person for an entire lifetime feels overwhelming. My

parents got divorced when I was just a little kid and my whole life I swore I’d

never end up like them. I love the life Sam and I have created together, and

I miss her terribly when we’re apart. But can I really guarantee that I’ll feel

that way forever?

I’ve thought about postponing the wedding but it’s already coming up

so fast. All our families and friends are flying in; we’ve spent a bunch of

money on the venue and flowers. If I cancel now it would hurt Sam terribly.

I’m worried that she would feel so betrayed that she’d never want to speak to

me again. Is this kind of panic just normal cold feet before getting married

or am I on to something, that maybe I’m afraid because this is the wrong

path for me?

— Brian

Dear Brian,

I certainly can’t tell you what choice to make concerning one of the most important

decisions of your life, but I do have some thoughts I’d like you to consider.

You’re clearly expressing fear and doubt but you’re not offering any specifics

(e.g., mistrust, dissatisfaction, irreconcilable differences) as to why these feelings

exist. Instead, your anxiety is focusing on (1) the idea of a lifetime commitment

of love, (2) panic attacks, and (3) your parents’ divorce. Let’s look at each of these

individually.

Lifetime commitment: Have you ever worried you’d suddenly stop loving your

favorite grandparent or that you’d stop loving your own child after a few years?

Feelings of true love and deep attachment can shift and change with the passage

of time, but they very rarely stop altogether. In my opinion, what causes love to

die in a relationship is trauma, neglect, or abuse. You’re feeling overwhelmed

by the idea of loving someone for a lifetime, but what about the concept of being

loved for a lifetime? You need to decide whether your trepidations are truly

because you’re choosing the wrong person or the wrong lifestyle (marriage), or if

your feelings are based on prior hurt, fear and trauma. If it’s the latter, those feelings

must be dealt with or else you’re likely to continue repeating them in future

relationships.

Panic attacks: A panic attack is an anxiety disorder that is dealt with by experiencing

one’s underlying feelings. If you allow yourself to face and experience

your buildup of emotions, you will be able to make better life decisions. I highly

recommend you attend psychotherapy in order to better understand your fears

and negative feelings, possibly multiple times before the wedding. Explore the

possibility that you are, in fact, just temporarily panicking. Many high functioning

individuals who live successful lives attend therapy in order to better understand

themselves increase their ability to love themselves, have meaningful relationships

with others and embrace an even more satisfying life.

Parents’ Divorce: Do you think you’d have such strong doubts about marrying

Sam if your parents hadn’t split up when you were young? If the answer is

no, then you have more work to do in therapy. I don’t believe in dredging up the

past unless the trauma of that history is affecting the quality of life today. When

you’re in a state of anxiety, your thoughts are fearful. While that’s understandable

and needs to be addressed, also think about the positive. You’ll have the

chance to love another, a chance to do what your parents were unable to do. But

if you don’t try, you will have broken up like your parents did, just at an earlier

stage. n

PASADENA FILMMAKER MARCOS

DURIAN TURNS A TOUGH CHILDHOOD

INTO GREAT ART WITH HIS NEW

SHORT ‘FISH HEAD’

BY CARL KOZLOWSKI

Growing up Filipino-American as the son of a single

mother who never knew his father, Marcos Durian

was a victim of constant bullying all the way to

seventh grade. He finally fought back against his oppressor

classmates, but he still had to contend with the frustration

of wondering who his father was and if he would ever meet

him.

The Pasadena-based Durian has taken those two highly

emotional sets of memories and woven them together to

create the short film “Fish Head,” a “visual poem” that

makes its Los Angeles debut this weekend at the Dances

With Films festival in Los Angeles. As the veteran cinematographer

looks forward to unveiling his first project of his

own, he recalled the long journey of taking his life creative

vision to the screen.

“I originally wrote a feature length version of the script,

back in 2006, sent it out and got a little bit of traction,” says

Durian, who has built his career working on a slew of commercials

and music videos. “I got some meetings and unfortunately

some of the people I talked to loved it but wanted

me to change the main character’s ethnicity to Caucasian

or African-American.

“I gave it a try, got about 15, 16 pages in and I just knew

it just wasn’t working,” he continues. “All the nuances that

go along with the cultural aspects of being Filipino and the

language that was happening with the bullying. I shelved

it, but in the last few years diversity has made a big step

forward so I was inspired to go back to the script and I

thought try making it as a short film. I took the first and

second part of the feature and turned it into the short.”

The 16-minute film tells the touching story of a young

Filipino-American boy trying desperately to fit in with his

classmates while constantly wondering about his father.

As he struggles to get through each day, he finally has had

enough and takes a dramatic stand.

The style of the film — which was shot in Torrance,

Covina and Montrose — is elliptical, replacing a traditional

narrative with a series of flashbacks and flash forwards,

as well as dreamlike moments designed to show how the

young boy sees the world in his own unique way.

Throughout, the look of the film has a magical

realist effect and the young lead’s performance is

impressively layered.

“I wanted to do something that was purely visual,

held some subtext to it but also in a way ambiguous

and not hitting too much over the head with the

audience,” says Durian, who moved with his wife to

Pasadena from Los Feliz in 2015. “The fact that it’s

not quite clear to the audience could be a talking

point afterwards. As far as the visual poem of it,

there were elements I wanted to make ambiguous.

“There are fleeting moments that you might recognize

from your life or mine as kids, like Milo looking

up to the sky in a field and sees a plane and sees

escape and starts to float off the grass,” says Durian.

“Or in a dream where he’s reaching out to a man’s

hand but can’t touch it, and mom turns toward the

camera and is crying. It’s a visual where the thought

process behind that was Milo is seeing something he

maybe shouldn’t be, that perhaps mom doesn’t want

him to see her in that state. Pieces like that where I

wanted to go for something a little ambiguous, has

subtext but also doesn’t hammer anything over the

head too much in telling the audience one thing or

another.”

The goal now is to keep entering the film in

prestige festivals, with Dances With Films growing

in prominence this year as the Los Angeles Film Festival

died off. He has already submitted to the prominent

Sundance Film Festival competitor Slamdance,

and is preparing to submit it to Sundance itself in

the coming weeks.

But Durian has already been named one of this

year’s recipients of the Emerging Cinematographer’s

Award, to be presented by the International

Cinematographer’s Guild on Oct. 6 at the Television

Academy (the organization behind the Emmys)

in Burbank. It’s an impressive feat for a man who

overcame such a tough childhood, and he’s proud of

every step of his journey.

“My parents met at the US Consulate in Toronto,

when my mom dropped her gloves, he picked them

up and they struck up a conversation with each

other,” says Durian. “That kind of first meeting was

abnormal in the 1960s, when people trusted each

other to talk more. They began to date for a few

years, then mom became pregnant and from there

details of my father’s history came to light that

imploded the relationship.

“I thought I might have seen him once, when a

gentleman was standing at the front door of our

house,” he concludes. “Just like it happens in the

film, time seemed to stand still. I was completely

taken over by this person’s presence, but a friend

snapped me out of looking at him and it didn’t hit me

until several hours later that he could have been my

dad. I’ll never know, but I tried to make something

meaningful out of it.” ■

TRAX BY BLISS

KEB’ MO’, Oklahoma (Concord): ★★★

The Grammy-winning bluesman’s latest album

balances feel-good love songs with meatier

tales. The first half’s the most compelling. “Put

a Woman in Charge,” a feminist pop-rocker with

Rosanne Cash, was heard during midterm election

campaigns, while the deceptively cheery “Don’t

Throw It Away” references plastic pollution (“The

face of this planet … could use just a little plastic

surgery”). The warmly uplifting “This is My Home”

speaks to the political moment in an acoustic

arrangement underscoring the humanity of its

immigrant characters; unlike sappy closer “Beautiful

Music,” its sweetness feels earned. kebmo.com

‘Hawks With

Good Intentions’

I SEE HAWKS IN LA CELEBRATES NEW COLLABORATIVE ALBUM WITH UK DUO THE

GOOD INTENTIONS AT HIGHLAND PARK BOWL

Among the press releases

tumbling like steady

avalanches into my inbox,

rare is the announcement that

includes my name beyond the

salutation. Credit I See Hawks in

LA guitarist Paul Lacques with

knowing how to get someone’s

attention.

Next Thursday the Hawks

celebrate the completion of

an album long in the making,

“Hawks With Good Intentions,” a

collaboration with Peter Davies

and Gabrielle Monk, aka UK duo

the Good Intentions. As Lacques

reminded me in his press missive,

he and Hawks drummer Victoria

Jacobs befriended Davies and

Monk at a musical gathering at

my home in 2012, when the Good

Intentions were touring California

with their English/Welsh

brand of Americana. A mutual

admiration society took root as

the Hawks and the Intentions

supported each other at shows on

both sides of the Atlantic.

During one stateside visit, Davies,

Lacques and Hawks frontman

Rob Waller met at Waller’s garage

studio in Highland Park to write

their first songs together — what

would eventually become “Rolling

the Boxcars” and “White Cross.”

For the next few years they exchanged

lyrics and MP3s via email,

a long-distance process belied by

the relaxed warmth of the songwriting

and instrumental sound.

“White Cross” emerged last

year on the Hawks’ “Live and

Never Learn,” with a slyly loping

country-blues guitar arrangement

by Tony Gilkyson. The version

with the Intentions follows the

same melodic lines but substitutes

sparkle for groove grease as

it tells its tale of a Memphis musician

with a taste for long odds.

Throughout “Hawks With Good

Intentions,” guitars, Dobro and

lap steel waltz and rumble with

Richie Lawrence’s accordion and

Gabe Witcher’s fiddle, as Waller

and Davies swap lead vocals and

Monk and Hawks bassist Paul

Marshall chime in with heartlifting

harmonies.

Trains, guitars, the high desert,

spectral characters, and the

lack of wildness in the West are

recurring motifs throughout the

10 songs, which collectively represent

a stylistic stretch for everyone

involved, as they needed to

mesh cultural, compositional and

vocal differences. “Flying Now,”

a ballad Davies sings and wrote

with Lacques, manages to evoke

both Gram Parsons and Richard

Thompson while stumbling in the

shoes of a homeless man “cashing

in bottles along a Frogtown

stream.” The train beat may echo

familiarly, but incisively detailed

characters of the Davies-Lacques-

Waller murder ballad “Things

Like This” travel deeper into the

desert than the Hawks have gone

before. “Epiphany on Town Hall

Square” is a poignant Christmas

song with an alternative perspective,

yet it’s not hard to imagine it

sung in an English chapel.

Davies and Monk plan to

return to LA in the fall, and the

Hawks are gearing up for a UK

tour in July. Ben Vaughn and Old

Californio frontman Rich Dembowski

will join the Hawks next

Thursday at Highland Park Bowl,

where the Hawks have lengthy

history, to celebrate the bonds of

song and friendship. ■

SIMBA BAUMGARTNER, Les Yeux Noirs

(Arte Boreal): ★★★★

The rare exhilaration in this 21-year-old French

guitarist’s playing evokes his great-grandfather,

gypsy jazz pioneer Django Reinhardt — lineage that

happily transcends novelty. Choice material from

Reinhardt’s oeuvre includes a seven-and-a-halfminute

romp through “Dark Eyes,” an intoxicating

“Nuages,” and a “Blues Mineur” punctuated with

zesty clarinet and drum solos. Vibrantly produced

by countryman Stephane Wrembel, whose longtime

combo offers crisp support, even well-worn

chestnuts from Reinhardt’s repertoire like “All of

Me” and “September Song” sound refreshed by

Baumgartner’s joie de vivre. Recommended if gypsy

jazz is your thing and you love to swing. Facebook.

com/simba.baumgartner

GARY NICHOLSON, The Great Divide

(Blue Corn): ★★★★

You needn’t share his politics to appreciate the

veteran songwriter’s mastery of groove, melody and

wit, or the diamond-like clarity of his sketches of

human nature at its messiest. Small wonder Buddy

Guy, Delbert McClinton, Willie Nelson and Bonnie

Raitt record his songs. Here Nicholson mines the

blues-country-soul nexus with ace players like

guitarist John Jorgenson, while poking the national

psyche’s tenderest scars with the swampy, racismthemed

“Blues in Black and White,” “God Help

America” (a moving duet with Ruthie Foster), the

heartrending soldier’s ode “Nineteen,” wisecracking

“Trickle Down,” and hopeful anthem “We Are One.”

A keeper. garynicholson.com

GREG FELDEN, Made of Strings

(self-released): ★★★½

Questions are asked throughout this LA

songwriter’s fi rst full-length album, but they’re

often rhetorical, like he’s tallying accounts.

Felden’s an intelligent songwriter with a buoying

sense of melody influenced by ’70s singersongwriter

pop; he’s also self-aware, wiser for

being wounded. His emotional honesty’s piercing

whether recalling a relationship’s demise during

the stormy “Tell Me What’s Broken” (“There’s

something not open/ In the words that you’ve

spoken”), negotiating persistent “Ghosts,” or

waxing philosophical on the hooky “When the

Change Comes” (“Tell me where will all the ragged

people go/ To the high ground, to the low?”). RIYL

ICE CREAM MAKER TILLAMOOK OFFERS CASH PRIZES AT 27TH ANNUAL PASADENA

CHALK FESTIVAL

After growing into the largest chalk-art

festival in the world over its 27-year history,

the Pasadena Chalk Festival has a

fun new twist this weekend to keep this

year’s edition fresh. The Light Bringer

Project, a longtime Pasadena nonprofi t

which runs the festival, is teaming with

new sponsor Tillamook County Creamery

Association to offer cash prizes to

the winners for the fi rst time.

The association, which has long

been acclaimed for its delicious array

of cheeses, is expanding into launching

a line of ice cream fl avors and is using

the festival as one of its promotional

launching pads for the new endeavor.

They’ll have free samples available

throughout the weekend, but the bigger

allure for the hundreds of artists

coming to make the city’s sidewalks

sparkle is the $5,000 in cash they’ll

be divvying up among award-winners

across various categories at the end of

the two-day event, which runs from 10

a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday as

a perfect destination for Father’s Day

weekend.

“Tillamook is bringing their Yum

Bus, a retro looking van with a ’60s

love vibe, from which they’re going

to serve a fl ight of ice cream for free,

which is kind of a fancy word for ice

cream cone,” says Patty Hurley, cofounder

of the Light Bringer Project.

“Artists are very excited about it,

because anything cold like that is a

welcome treat in the heat, but they’re

even more excited about cash.

“We usually have really nice prizes

for the artists including Jet Blue airline

tickets, hotel stays or dinners at Ruth’s

Chris Steak House,” she adds. “This

year for the top winner, the artist award

and the people’s choice award, are going

to get cash prizes for the fi rst time

in 27 years, which will make the awards

really fun. They wanted to contribute to

the artists directly which is a really cool

thing, and many last-minute artists

have jumped in.”

The festival has grown to include an

average of 600 artist teams in recent

years, with crowds of up to 50,000 attending

to admire an incredibly vibrant

array of art made with more than

25,000 pieces of colored chalk. The

extravagant results fi ll the plazas of the

Paseo outdoor mall and the Pasadena

Civic Auditorium, while the 18th Annual

Pasadena Police Classic Car Show

returns with an array of classic cars

along Green Street between Los Robles

and Marengo avenues from 10 a.m. to 3

p.m. Sunday.

The fest’s Kids Make Art section,

near El Cholo restaurant at the Paseo,

is expanding this year to include more

art-making opportunities, with the

chance to have families sharing in

painting, drawing or coloring and

special tote bags available for kids to

paint in their own imaginative designs.

In addition, this year’s fest will feature

drones taking aerial photos of artworks

for the fi rst time ever, while many artists

are starting to create stop-motion

photography of their creative process

that will be uploaded to the festival’s

YouTube channel as well.

Add in an eclectic assortment of

live music on two stages throughout

both days of the festival and the fact

that all proceeds benefi t the Light

Bringer Project’s numerous arts programs

throughout Los Angeles County

public schools, and it’s no wonder that

this has become a permanent highlight

on the Pasadena cultural calendar.

“I’m sure this event is a real love

fest for Pasadena, because every year

people say ‘This is why I moved to

Pasadena,’ or ‘I look forward to this

every year,’ and people are always

discovering by chance or friends

bringing friends here for fi rst time each

year,” says Hurley. “What’s nice is the

murals stay up for a couple days after

so people can also come look in the

quiet.” ■

a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at the

Paseo, 300 E. Colorado Blvd., Pasadena. The

BY CARL KOZLOWSKI

Forgive, But Never Forget

‘EMANUEL’ RECALLS THE MASS SHOOTING DEATHS AT A SOUTH CAROLINA

CHURCH AND THE CONGREGANTS WHO FORGAVE THE KILLER

Anthony Thompson in Emanuel

Filmmaker Brian Ivie is one of many Americans

who will never forget June 19, 2015. He was with

his wife in Hawaii on their honeymoon, reading

his Bible while enjoying a glorious view of the Pacific

Ocean.

Everything seemed right with the world, until he

suddenly heard his wife sobbing from inside their hotel

room and rushed to see what was troubling her. She

was watching news coverage of a public statement

being made by surviving family members of the racist

mass shooting at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal

Church in Charleston, South Carolina, which had

shocked the nation two days before.

Rather than angrily calling for protests and retribution

over the massacre perpetrated by white supremacist

Dylann Roof, who had entered the church and shot

nine African-American congregation members during

a Bible study, the family members were announcing

their forgiveness of him. That remarkable call for

peace as a potentially dangerous backlash was brewing

among the frustrated local African-American community

and is widely believed to have averted further

violence — and it inspired Ivie to make a documentary

about their decision.

The resulting film, “Emanuel,” will screen at 7 p.m.

Monday, the anniversary of the shooting, and Wednesday,

the anniversary of the forgiveness statement, at

Laemmle Playhouse 7, Regal Alhambra Renaissance 14

and the AMC Santa Anita 16 theaters as part of a nationwide

series of screenings sponsored by Fathom Events.

The film is powerful in its interviews with the survivors

and how they chose to make a stand for peace and

still insist on justice, as the then-21-year-old Roof was

ultimately sentenced to nine consecutive life terms in

prison for his horrific actions.

Ivie recently spoke with the Pasadena Weekly about

his decision to make “Emanuel” and the impact it had

on him as well. It is an important film, as evidenced by

the fact that this 28-year-old filmmaker attracted the

support of heavyweight celebrities such as NBA star Stephen

Curry, Oscar-winner Viola Davis and Emmy-winner

Mariska Hargitay of “Law and Order: SVU.”

Pasadena Weekly: How did you come to be a part

of this film?

Ivie: When I joined my wife watching the coverage

of the families’ statement, their worst moment collided

with our best. It was shocking to know a white shooter

killed nine black worshipers, but she was more shocked

that their family members were forgiving them, and

that’s the start on this for me. I had to know how they

managed to do that.

What do you want audiences to take away from

this film?

A lot of messages that have been close to my heart.

We want people to do the hard, uncomfortable work to

have healing done between races in our country. I hope

people will see God is real and is with us in our suffering,

and He’ll provide the inspiration to get through almost

anything.

What were your thoughts on some of the family

members’ ability to forgive so quickly?

Forgiveness is perhaps the most counterintuitive

virtue there is, and sometimes makes no sense at all. I

don’t know if I could do it, especially not just 48 hours

after the loss of my wife. But I tried to give everyone a

chance to tell the world what they actually felt and believed.

It’s not just a religious topic, and the film allows

each person to say openly and honestly where they are

in their process of healing. We show who forgives, who

doesn’t and in between. Life’s not all tied up in a bow.

Even when you forgive, you certainly don’t forget but

you move on.

How did you get Curry, Davis and Harigitay

involved?

The fact that Stephen Curry is helping with this and

getting the word out, that’s why I believe in God. He’s

even doing it in the middle of the NBA finals. Nobody

knew until last year that he was starting a production

company in Hollywood, and he’s not about profit but

about purpose. Viola is from South Carolina, a woman

of color and Christian. Viola was a friend before this.

Mariska is an activist and Christian, and she likes to find

projects that will help people get through trauma as she

did earlier in her life.

In the end, how tough was the experience of making

this?

The subject was rough — a lot of people felt we

shouldn’t make a film at all and even I didn’t. I stayed

away for a year so I couldn’t make this a career opportunity.

I’ve never made a film like this one, where every

penny made will be donated to the families. What was

challenging was that the film honors every family’s experience,

and it does. They’ve all blessed it. n

B. For all tenants in good standing, who

meet the income eligibility requirements

of paragraph A above, and who have

maintained continuous tenancy for a

period of 10 years or more shall be entitled

to enhanced relocation allowance

and moving expenses. The total amount

of relocation allowance to be paid by

the landlord to the tenant is based on

the length of the tenancy. For each year

after the 10th anniversary, the amount of

the base relocation allowance shall be

increased by 10%, and shall increase

each year thereafter until reaching the

maximum of 200% of the base relocation

allowance on the 20th anniversary

of the tenancy.

C. The relocation allowance and moving

expense allowance provided for in this

section shall be automatically increased

every year in accordance with changes

in the HUD fair market rents. The moving

expense allowance provided in this

section shall be adjusted annually in accordance

with the Consumer Price Index

(for Los Angeles-Long Beach) pursuant

to Section 1.08.060.

D. The relocation allowance provided for

in this section shall be triggered if any of

the following circumstances occur:

1. Demolition. A landlord or property

owner seeks to recover possession of

the unit for purpose of demolition.

2. Permanent Removal of Unit from

the Rental Market. The landlord seeks to

remove the rental unit permanently from

the rental housing market.

3. Occupancy by Landlord or Landlord’s

Family Member. The landlord

seeks to vacate the rental unit for the

sole purpose of making the unit available

for occupancy by the landlord or a

family member of the landlord. In this

circumstance, the amount of relocation

and moving expense allowance which

landlord is obligated to pay to the tenant

shall be equal to one-half of the relocation

allowance and moving expense allowance

provided for in this chapter.

4. Government Order to Vacate. The

landlord seeks to recover possession of

the rental unit in order to comply with a

governmental agency’s order to vacate,

order to comply, order to abate, or any

other order that necessitates vacating

the rental unit as a result of a significant

or extended violation of housing, health,

building or safety laws of the

state of California or the City of Pasadena

which would result in a constructive

eviction.

5. Change in Ownership. There is a

change in ownership of the rental unit

and, at any time within 18 months of

the change in ownership, the landlord

notifies the tenant that at some specific

date after the change in ownership, the

tenant’s tenancy is being terminated,

the tenant is being evicted, and/or there

is going to be a large rent increase.

For purposes of this chapter, a “large

rent increase” means any rent increase

exceeding the Cost of Living Increase

(“CPI”) plus five percent (5%) within the

12 month period prior to the notice of the

rent increase.

6. Non-exclusive Remedy. Nothing in

this chapter limits the rights of the city or

tenant to recover from the landlord any

relocation allowance or moving expense

allowance or placement assistance or

any other assistance provided to assist

eligible renters and/or other city costs

incurred for the correction/abatement

of distressed properties which the city is

legally entitled to recover.

E. Landlord’s non-renewal and/or termination

of tenancy under any of the

circumstances described in subsection

(C) above, shall not exempt landlord

from the obligation to pay relocation allowance

and moving expense allowance

as provided for in this chapter to any displaced

tenant in good standing.

F. Upon request of landlord, city, or

city consultant, tenant shall provide the

following documentation to determine

eligibility for relocation allowance and

moving expense allowance:

1. A signed certification of household

members and household income on a

form acceptable to the city;

2. Documentation of income {e.g.,

paystubs, public benefits statements,

employer verification);

3. Any other documentation as may be

reasonably requested by landlord, city,

or city consultant.

G. The relocation allowance and moving

expense allowance provided for in

this chapter shall be available to those

students, faculty members, and/or staff

members, of any educational institution,

living in housing provided by that same

educational institution, if such student,

faculty member, and/or staff member

is able to demonstrate, with evidence

acceptable to the city, that their tenancy

was terminated by the landlord on a date

that is more than 365 days after the date

on which the student, faculty member,

and/or staff member discontinued enrollment

in the institution as a student

or discontinued employment as a faculty

member and/or staff member at the educational

institution. For cases in which

the educational institution enters into

separate leases with individuals sharing

a rental unit as roommates, the following

relocation allowance and moving

expense allowance shall apply per person:

(i) Relocation allowance—Twice

the HUD fair market rent for a studio unit;

and (ii) Moving expenses— $1,200.00.

SECTION 3. If any part of this ordinance

is held to be invalid for any reason, such

decision shall not affect the validity of

the remaining portion of this ordinance,

and this City Council hereby declares

that it would have passed the remainder

of this Ordinance if such invalid portion

thereof had been deleted.

SECTION 4. This ordinance shall take

effect 30 days after publication.

SECTION 5. The City Clerk shall certify

the adoption of this ordinance and shall

cause this ordinance to be published by

title and summary.

WILLIAM D. SIRKEL AKA WILLIAM

SIRKEL AND WILLIAM DAVID SIRKEL

CASE No.19STPB02156

To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors,

contingent creditors, and persons who

may otherwise be interested in the Non-

Domiciliary WILL or estate, or both of

WILLIAM D. SIRKEL AKA WILLIAM

SIRKEL AND WILLIAM DAVID SIRKEL.

A PETITION FOR PROBATE has been

filed by SHERYL ANN PATTON in the

Superior Court of California, County of

LOS ANGELES.

THE PETITION FOR PROBATE requests

that SHERYL ANN PATTON be appointed

as personal representative to administer

the estate of the decedent.

THE PETITION requests the decedent’s

Non-Domiciliary WILL and codicils, if

any, be admitted to probate. The Non-

Domiciliary WILL and any codicils are

available for examination in the file kept

by the court.

THE PETITION requests authority to

administer the estate under the Independent

Administration of Estates Act . (This

authority will allow the personal representative

to take many actions without

obtaining court approval. Before taking

certain very important actions, however,

the personal representative will be required

to give notice to interested persons

unless they have waived notice or

consented to the proposed action.) The

independent administration authority

will be granted unless an interested person

files an objection to the petition and

shows good cause why the court should

not grant the authority.

A HEARING on the petition will be held

in this court as follows: 06/21/19 at

8:30AM in Dept. 67 located at 111 N.

HILL STREET, LOS ANGELES, CA 90012

IF YOU OBJECT to the granting of the

petition, you should appear at the hearing

and state your objections or file

written objections with the court before

the hearing. Your appearance may be in

person or by your attorney.

IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a contingent

creditor of the decedent, you must file

your claim with the court and mail a copy

to the personal representative appointed

by the court within the later of either (1)

four months from the date of first issuance

of letters to a general personal representative,

as defined in section 58(b)

of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60

days from the date of mailing or personal

delivery to you of a notice under section

9052 of the California Probate Code.

Other California statutes and legal authority

may affect your rights as a creditor.

You may want to consult with an attorney

knowledgeable in California law.

YOU MAY EXAMINE the file kept by the

court. If you are a person interested in

the estate, you may file with the court

a Request for Special Notice (form

DE-154) of the filing of an inventory

and appraisal of estate assets or of any

petition or account as provided in Probate

Code section 1250. A Request for

Special Notice form is available from the

court clerk.

THE PETITION FOR PROBATE requests

that DEBORAH WALTHER be appointed

as personal representative to administer

the estate of the decedent.

THE PETITION requests authority to

administer the estate under the Independent

Administration of Estates Act . (This

authority will allow the personal representative

to take many actions without

obtaining court approval. Before taking

certain very important actions, however,

the personal representative will be required

to give notice to interested persons

unless they have waived notice or

consented to the proposed action.) The

independent administration authority

will be granted unless an interested person

files an objection to the petition and

shows good cause why the court should

not grant the authority.

A HEARING on the petition will be held

in this court as follows: 06/24/19 at

8:30AM in Dept. 2D located at 111 N.

HILL ST., LOS ANGELES, CA 90012

IF YOU OBJECT to the granting of the

petition, you should appear at the hearing

and state your objections or file

written objections with the court before

the hearing. Your appearance may be in

person or by your attorney.

IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a contingent

creditor of the decedent, you must file

your claim with the court and mail a copy

to the personal representative appointed

by the court within the later of either (1)

four months from the date of first issuance

of letters to a general personal representative,

as defined in section 58(b)

of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60

days from the date of mailing or personal

delivery to you of a notice under section

9052 of the California Probate Code.

Other California statutes and legal authority

may affect your rights as a creditor.

You may want to consult with an attorney

knowledgeable in California law.

YOU MAY EXAMINE the file kept by the

court. If you are a person interested in

the estate, you may file with the court

a Request for Special Notice (form

DE-154) of the filing of an inventory

and appraisal of estate assets or of any

petition or account as provided in Probate

Code section 1250. A Request for

Special Notice form is available from the

court clerk.

ìNOTICE 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 or 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

sole and exclusive remedy shall be

the return of monies paid to the Trustee,

and the successful bidder shall have no

further recourse. NOTICE TO POTEN-

TIAL 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

916-939-0772 or visit this Internet Web

site www.nationwideposting.com, using

the file number assigned to this case

130637-5. 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. Date: 06/05/2019
