They can feel safe and have no

fear of getting hit by cars. They all

ride at safe speeds and observe

all the rules of the road.

Or do they?

I have trouble with bicyclists

who won’t stop at stop signs,

much less red lights. They just

take a look and see if the road is

clear of cars approaching them.

Cars, trucks and motorcyclists all

stop at red lights and stop signs.

Why not bicyclists?

Oh, they’re different.

JUST SAY IT, MAN

To the editors of Pasadena

Weekly, what in the world is this

review (Film, May 23)? You can

publish this rant about how comedies

made by men are better?

Let’s try a review that uses fi lm

theory that doesn’t rely on name

dropping other comedies. I can’t

stress enough that this comes

off like a personal opinion and

it’s a shame that Pasadena

Weekly supports the homophobic

and sexist. He thinks he’s

sly by using phrases like

“rest assured,” but just say it,

man. Just say what you want to

about the lesbian scenes in the fi

lm and let the paper publish it

because clearly they will publish

anything.

His negative use of the phrases

“millennial” and “PC culture”

show a problem with how out of

touch this review is. If you didn’t

like the fi lm, totally fi ne. To act

like females being “raunchy” is a

problem is unacceptable. Seems

like you don’t like women in the

driver’s seat as directors and

writers either. Wow. I’m hoping

this doesn’t weigh into major

aggregates because it’s undoubtedly

personally biased with no

critique of the fi lmmaking.

A HUMAN UNIVERSAL

The guest feature on the

30th anniversary of the Tiananmen

Square protests was timely

and needed. Catherine Bauknight

should be commended

for her bravery in continuing

to frame and snap photographs

as soldiers opened fire on the

students. It’s unfortunate,

however, that she writes about

repression in China only using

the past tense, of events that

happened “before discovering

the rewards of capitalism.”

Instead, the situation today

is still repressive and, like in

so many countries, trending for

the worse. At the same time,

private wealth has been on a

consistent rise. That implies human

freedom is not as much a

question of property ownership,

but basic ownership of one’s

own life and labor.

The constant demand for

that base line continues into

the present with hundreds of

strikes over the past year in the

United States and more than a

thousand strikes in China. The

work stoppages span manufacturing,

education, health,

and transportation and overflow

the bulwarks of official

union bureaucracy. They are

not removed in spirit from the

women’s marches and smaller

groups of women who demonstrate

in China, risking arrest,

or from racial minorities in

either country struggling for

visibility and dignity.

The ever resurgent call for

democracy and self-determination

within the society, the

workplace, and the family is a

human universal, not discovered

from outside. That

universal is the bane of existence

for any elite group that

consolidates power and wealth

unto themselves, whether their

slogans extol collectivism or

privatism. Reflecting back on

the Tiananmen student strike

should also propel us into the

future.

A PLEA FOR HELP

ACTIVISTS CALL ON CALTRANS TO TAKE BETTER

CARE OF ITS TENANTS AND PROPERTIES

Dear Caltrans Director Laurie Berman:

On behalf of the NO 710 Action Committee, we are writing to ask for your

immediate help. We write as representatives of the tenants of Caltrans-owned

houses and the neighbors, who live in or near the corridor of the now-canceled

State Route 710 Freeway — in Pasadena, South Pasadena and El Sereno (Los

Angeles).

A Little Background

As we believe you know, Caltrans purchased the majority of the 710 properties

in Pasadena, South Pasadena and El Sereno during the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s.

Most of the properties purchased were single-family residences in thriving

and healthy neighborhoods. Houses purchased ranged from small bungalows

and Victorian cottages to mansion-sized homes. There are several apartment

complexes, and a number of properties are now used by nonprofit charitable

organizations. Scattered about are a few vacant lots.

Large numbers of the houses are listed on the National Register of Historic

Places or have been determined eligible for the National Register and/or the

California Register. Today, most of these Caltrans-owned houses are adjacent

to established and highly desirable neighborhoods in Pasadena, South Pasadena

and El Sereno.

Even Caltrans does not know exactly how many houses and properties its

owns. We generally refer to 500 Caltrans properties and believe that there are at

least 460 houses along the corridor of the now-canceled 710 Freeway extension.

Caltrans has indicated that all of these houses and properties will be sold, but

progress on this plan is almost non-existent.

The Current Situation

In recent years, Caltrans has reduced its care and maintenance of all of these

properties. Gradually, more and more houses became vacant and subject to

vandalism and fell into serious disrepair. In Pasadena alone, we know that 25

percent of the Caltrans-owned houses are vacant. There are a number of longterm

residents and their families who have lived in their houses for decades.

Many have taken on the responsibilities and expenses of upkeep and repairs

themselves. These Caltrans renters hope to be able to purchase their houses

— either in the affordable price range (if they qualify) or at market rate. These

tenants look upon these houses as their “homes” and feel and are part of the

nearby neighborhoods.

‘BAILING WATER’

CASH-FLUSH LAWMAKERS CONTEMPLATE MORE WAYS TO BUY OUR WAY OUT OF HOMELESSNESS

BY ANDRÉ COLEMAN

While Gov. Gavin Newsom and the state Legislature debated

how best to disburse $1 billion in funds to aid people living

on the streets of California, an audit revealed staggering

increases in the number of destitute people experiencing homelessness.

This new allocation comes on the heels of Measure H, which

passed in 2017 and increases the Los Angeles County sales tax

by a quarter of a cent for 10 years. In that time, the measure is

expected to raise $3.5 billion.

In 2016, voters in the city of Los Angeles passed Proposition

HHH, a $1.2 billion bond measure in order to build $10,000 units

of affordable housing.

Meanwhile, officials in Pasadena said the city’s own

decreasing homeless count is not an anomaly.

According to the local count, there are 542 people

experiencing homelessness in Pasadena, down from 677 in 2018.

The 2019 homeless census is the second lowest in Pasadena

since the count began in 1992. The lowest numbers were recorded

in 2016, when 530 homeless people were counted.

That’s a far cry from Los Angeles where the survey revealed a

soaring homeless population over last year of more than 36,000

people, and more than 59,000 people living on the streets around

Los Angeles County, according to the LA Times.

“The fact that the recent homeless count indicated that

Pasadena’s number of homeless actually went down, while

increasing in other cities, is testament to the efforts of the

city and local nonprofits,” said City Manager Steve Mermell.

“Sadly, however, it gives me little comfort, as the problem is so

pronounced, particularly in Los Angeles County. There is no

easy solution, as homelessness is the downstream result of many

other issues. Collectively, we must be willing to implement real

solutions that get people off the street rather than move them

around from place to place.”

But according to the aide of one Los Angeles City Council

member, many cities are not part of the collective effort and

instead are using police in suburban areas to remove the

POWER OF THE PURSE

SCHIFF TRIES BUT FAILS TO GET

ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS TO

STOP USING ROUNDUP AROUND

THE LA RIVER

US Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) unsuccessfully

proposed an appropriations amendment

that would prohibit the US Army Corps of

Engineers from spending federal dollars to use

a controversial herbicide in and around the Los

Angeles River.

“Many of my constituents who live near the

Los Angeles River are rightly concerned by the

Army Corps of Engineer’s use of glyphosate to

remove vegetation,” said Schiff of the popular

herbicide Roundup’s active chemical component,

which the World Health Organization (WHO) has

determined is a probable cause of cancer.

“I believe the Army Corps should find alternative

ways of managing vegetation in the river

that do not raise health concerns, and I remain

committed to finding legislative avenues to

compel them to do so,” Schiff said in a statement

issued June 14.

Locally, Roundup has been banned in Pasadena

since last year. After the Pasadena Weekly

reported the controversial herbicide was being

sprayed on county property in Northeast Pasadena,

Los Angeles County Supervisor Kathryn

Barger, who represents Altadena, introduced a

motion to ban use of the herbicide for 30 days

while county officials studied it and searched for

an organic replacement.

Schiff’s proposal would have amended legislation

currently being considered in the House

of Representatives to provide funding for the

Army Corps for fiscal year 2020. The amendment

was not included by the House Rules Committee

among the list of amendments that would receive

a full vote in the House.

Schiff wrote to Army Corps Chief of Staff

Col. Kirk E. Gibbs in October 2017 and January

2018, urging him to find alternatives to using

glyphosate.

After the corps indicated it would not stop

using glyphosate in response to community

concerns, Schiff also proposed two more proposals

to prohibit the use of glyphosate in the

LA River.

In March 2015, WHO’s International Agency

for Research on Cancer (IARC) said glyphosate is

“probably carcinogenic to humans.” The US EPA,

however, says it is not a carcinogen.

Roundup was produced by the Monsanto

Co., which was acquired by Germany-based

Bayer AG in 2018. Since then, despite the EPA’s

findings, plaintiffs in three separate lawsuits have

been awarded nearly $2.5 billion in damages.

There are currently more than 10,000 other

lawsuits facing Bayer AG.

According to the Department of Agriculture,

in 2014 about 240 million pounds of glyphosate

had been sprayed in the US.

ONE WIN, ONE LOSS

TWO LOCAL CASES END IN STARKLY

DIFFERENT OUTCOMES

BY ANDRÉ COLEMAN

Two local lawsuits came to an end this past week.

First, a City Hall employee was awarded nearly

$900,000 after he faced retaliation by city officials. Farshid Roumi

And second, a Los Angeles jury ruled against a

former Caltech scientist who claimed he was fired in 2016 for exposing misappropriation

of funds from the Department of Energy.

Farshid Roumi, 39, an expert in battery research, agreed to transfer federal

funding for battery research to the school from Parthian Energy LLC, a company

he co-founded in 2012.

Two researchers were bought in by the college to help Roumi, but things

took a bad turn after he learned of the researchers allegedly doing work

unrelated to the project while being paid from the federal dollars he agreed to

transfer to the school.

After objecting, Roumi’s project was shut down and he was fired.

“They loved him,” plaintiff’s attorney Mark Quigley said of Roumi’s Caltech

supervisors, when addressing the jury during opening statements, according to

City News Service.

In the first case, a jury late last week awarded former Department of Water

and Power employee Richard Thompson $824,000 after city officials retaliated

against him for writing a favorable performance evaluation recommending the

promotion of a female employee who was suing the city for gender discrimination.

Thompson also claimed the day before he was to testify on behalf of Aurora

Isabel, he was summoned to meet with his supervisor and two city attorneys,

who instructed him to say that he did not write Isabel’s performance evaluation

recommending her for promotion, and that she did.

After Thompson testified on behalf of Isabel, which resulted in her receiving

$250,000, the city demoted him from his job as a utility services planning

supervisor, and took away his office and city vehicle. Thompson was forced to

take a stress-related leave of absence and later resigned.

“The city of Pasadena has a duty to follow the law and protect its employees

from retaliation and harassment, not engage in it,” said attorney Patrick

McNicholas. “Richard Thompson was an employee of the city for 25 years,

and because he didn’t agree to lie under oath to protect the city in a separate

lawsuit, he was humiliated, harassed and ostracized to the point where he was

forced to resign.” n

MONEY MAN

PORTANTINO RECEIVES NEARLY

$50 MILLION FOR PCC AND

ARROYO SECO PROJECTS

BY CAROLINE KIMBEL

State Sen. Anthony J. Portantino (D-Pasadena)

announced last week that his requests for the 2019-

Anthony J. Portantino

2020 state budget have been approved.

Portantino asked for $3.5 million to help restore the Arroyo Seco Watershed

Restoration Project from Proposition 68, and $40.7 million from Proposition 51

funds for Pasadena City College’s (PCC) Armen Sarafian Building.

In 2016, voters passed Proposition 51, which mandates the state to issue

$9 billion in bonds to renovate and improve K-12 public schools and community

colleges across California.

Portantino previously served on the PCC Measure P Bond Oversight

Committee, which oversaw $150 million used to repair and upgrade buildings at

the college.

“It was a pleasure to work with educators, city leaders and local activists to

prioritize projects that will positively impact our community,” said Portantino

in a prepared statement. “The Arroyo Seco is facing significant challenges due

to the dam removal project and I was pleased that both South Pasadena and

Pasadena want to help enhance this important regional watershed. Also, PCC

continues to be the heart and soul of our community. Being in a position to

lobby the chancellor, the Department of Finance and the Governor’s office on

the importance of the Sarafian Building was very important. I am glad that

these requests were successful,” said Portantino.

Portantino will also use $3.5 million in Parks, Environment and Water Bond

funds to help restore the Arroyo Seco.

The Lower Arroyo Stream Restoration project was chosen by the Council of

Arroyo Seco Agencies as the top project for funding in April.

“It is a benefit to have a senator who is familiar with and who appreciates

the importance of the Arroyo Seco. Our organization is grateful once again

that Portantino has stepped up on our behalf. I am looking forward to seeing

how these resources are going to be allocated and am very optimistic that

South Pasadena and Pasadena will cooperate with the activist community on

the best utilization plan,” added Tim Brick, managing director, Arroyo Seco

Foundation. n

homeless from their streets and direct them to Los

Angeles.

In one instance, a homeless encampment lines

the north side of Venice Boulevard under the San

Diego (405) Freeway in West Los Angeles.

But on the south side of the street, which

is in suburban Culver City, there are no tents

or homeless people. Similar situations exist in

Manhattan Beach and Rancho Palos Verdes.

In Eagle Rock, an unincorporated part of Los

Angeles, tents line the south side of an underpass

of the Glendale (2) Freeway on Wilson Avenue, but

ends just before Glendale’s city border.

“Some police officers are taking the homeless

out of their cities and moving them to the LA city

side,” Branimir Kvartuc, a spokesperson for LA

City Councilman Joe Buscaino, told FOX News last

week.

Last year, Buscaino called for an investigation

after a video showed police dropping a man off on

the streets in San Pedro. According to Buscaino,

the man showed signs of mental illness.

Sheriff’s deputies claimed the man asked for

a ride to Pasadena where he said he lives. The

deputies told him they couldn’t drive him there but

would take him to a bus stop. There is no direct

route from San Pedro to Pasadena.

“This call is not a case of dumping,” said Nicole

Nishida, a public information officer with the

Sheriff’s Department. Nishida called the incident

“an act of compassionate service.”

Critics like Kvartuc point to the disparity in

Los Angeles’ population compared to its homeless

number. The city’s 4 million people make up about

38 percent of the county’s total population, but the

36,000 homeless people living in the city account for

61 percent of the county’s homeless population. And

those numbers are soaring, due in part to rising

housing costs. Los Angeles is not the only county

that has experienced large increases in its homeless

population. Riverside County saw a 22 percent

increase, San Bernardino County saw 23 percent

increase and Orange County saw a whopping 48

percent increase from its last count in 2017.

“We’re bailing water from the proverbial boat

with a hole in it and the boat is sinking,” said Ryan

Bell, spokesperson for the Pasadena Tenants

Justice Coalition. “The cure is legislation that will

keep tenants in their homes. Wages have not kept

pace with rent increases and, astonishingly, 721,000

LA County households are severely rent burdened,

defined as spending more than 50 percent of their

income on rent. Unless and until cities across LA

County take action to protect renters and stabilize

the precariously housed, more and more families

will find themselves sleeping in cars and garages,

on floors and sidewalks.”

But so far the efforts to fight the problem include

legislation to build more housing under legislation

like SB 50 — which would prohibit cities across

the state from banning mid-rise apartments within

a half-mile of public transit and allowing for four

or more homes on parcels of land in single-family

neighborhoods.

But it would take years to build enough housing

to put a dent in the current homeless population.

Last week, Newsom said that the state will

spend nearly $1 billion to help combat the problem.

But no one knows how that money will be divided

up, or if any accountability standards would be

included to determine how the money is spent.

Pasadena could get anywhere between $500,000

and $1.4 million based on the formula chosen to

dole out the money. Under Newsom’s plan, the 13

biggest cities in Los Angeles County, continuums of

care and all counties would get money.

But under a plan by the state legislature, money

would only go to the state’s 13 biggest cities and

continuums of care. Under that scenario Pasadena

would receive about $1.4 million.

The PTJC is currently collecting signatures to

place a rent control ordinance on the ballot.

Pasadena, along with Long Beach and Glendale,

is one of three cities designated a continuum of

care in California. A continuum of care includes a

planning body that coordinates housing, services

and funding for homeless families and individuals.

“Since 1995 we have had a very strong

commitment in the fight against homelessness,”

said Bill Huang. “CoC’s receive federal dollars and

creates and implements its own strong plan and

has established its own resources and programs.

That’s why our numbers went down. We have been

consistently focused on the issue.” n

A GUITAR MADE FROM A DROUGHT-DESTROYED

DAWN REDWOOD IS THE FOCUS OF A CONCERT WITH

GUITARIST LAURENCE JUBER AT THE ARBORETUM

BY BLISS BOWEN

When drought felled a dawn redwood on the grounds of the LA County

Arboretum in Arcadia two years ago, it seemed a portentous loss of one

of the garden’s oldest trees. Thanks to luthier Dennis Hays, its life cycle is

being extended through art. This Sunday at the Arboretum, Hays will talk about

building a guitar from the tree’s wood and Laurence Juber will give a pop/jazz

concert playing that instrument. And scientist Peter Del Tredici will discuss the

tree’s history, which is richer than is widely understood.

The dawn redwood’s story reaches back to the fraught period just before

Japan bombed Pearl Harbor. According to Del Tredici, a Marin County native and

senior research scientist emeritus at Harvard University’s Arnold Arboretum in

Cambridge, in 1941 a Japanese botanist discovered and named a “metasequoia”

— a “living fossil” in rock. In 1943, a “weird conifer” was discovered in China, and

a Harvard-educated Chinese botanist, after stumbling across a paper by the Japanese

botanist, reached out to an American school chum who was now director at

the Arnold Arboretum. World War II was raging across the globe, but leave it to

botanists to value Mother Nature and peace over politics.

“He said, ‘We’d love to study this tree more but we don’t have any resources to

collect it’ because it was in central China in a remote area,” Del Tredici recounts.

The Arnold Arboretum director sent $250 — “a small fortune in those days” — to

collect more living specimens and seed, in exchange for which the Arnold received

two pounds of dawn redwood seed. In 1948, as the Communist Revolution

closed up China, the director distributed those seeds, collected the year before,

“free of charge to 600 botanical gardens and interested individuals” around the

world.

“Most of the original introduction of all the [dawn redwood] trees growing

throughout North America as well as Europe essentially came from this one massive

collection,” Del Tredici observes.

“Standing behind every tree is the ghost of the person who went to great

lengths to bring it into cultivation. So the metasequoia has an amazing array of

ghosts. If not for the fact that this guy had been a graduate student at Harvard

and knew his good friend was now the director, and he could write to him and

ask for money, none of this would have happened. Because China did not open

again until the 1970s with Nixon; no Americans really went there until 1980. Had

it not been serendipitously collected, and the seeds sent to the US in 1948, the

tree never would have made it out of China.”

Flash forward to 2017 and serendipity continued playing a hand after the dawn

redwood at the LA County Arboretum succumbed to drought. Hays, a woodworker

inspired by post-war designer Sam Maloof, volunteers at the Maloof Foundation

in Rancho Cucamonga. Because of that, the Arboretum invited him to create

artwork with a chunk of the redwood for its “Forces of Nature II” exhibit in late

2017.

For much of his career Hays made furniture, but more recently, “totally out of

the blue,” he began building guitars. “It was just a fluke,” he says, “that my first guitars

were made out of rescued redwoods.” He retrieved some eucalyptus and “four

large beams of the dawn redwood” — “air dried by nature” — and … let it sit.

“I really didn’t know what I was going to do with it,” Hays admits. “Quite

frankly, I’d been making guitars for several years — I’ve probably made 40 in total

— but I’d started back on my studio furniture making. A couple weeks before the

show, I said, ‘I’ve gotta do something significant with the dawn redwood. I’m not a

sculptor, I’m not an artist in that sense, so I’ll make a guitar’ — just a total ‘what

the heck.’ And it turned out incredibly well. I’ve made a total now of five dawn

redwood-topped guitars.”

Cedar, mahogany, maple, spruce, swamp ash and even koa are the usual woods

of choice for guitar makers. Hays opts for walnut for his guitar bodies and necks,

Spanish cedar for the interior bracing, and redwood for tonewood on the top: “It

really does make the majority of the sound.”

Hays says he studied classical guitar forms for “dimensions, proportions, sizes”

before creating his original design. He learned to play and now jams regularly

with some friends. The redwood sounds beautiful, he says, but his main goal is to

open minds.

“My main theme in all this rescue wood at the Arboretum is to try to highlight

using unconventional stuff and getting out of the stereotypic mode that a lot of

woodworkers have that you have to make a guitar with spruce top. No, you don’t,”

he declares, adding that all his dawn redwood guitars are made “for the benefit of

the Arboretum.”

As a scientist, Del Tredici has long studied the relationship between woody

plants and their environment, and increasingly he’s focused on the effects of the

climate crisis. In that context, the dawn redwood offers potentially more lessons

as Southern California girds itself for a hotter, dryer future.

“Everybody makes these assumptions that the native species are the best

adapted, and it’s true, they are very well adapted — to the conditions that used

to exist,” he notes. “But what is going to adapt to the conditions that are going to

happen in the future is an open question. So this whole idea of native and nonnative

is a very thorny issue … In California, where the weather is changing, predictions

are that in a lot of the savannah area, there’ll be more shrubs and grasslands

than trees; there won’t be enough moisture to support tree growth over the long

haul. You can see it in the San Gabriel Mountains. As you go to higher elevations,

a lot of those trees have died already. It’s a huge problem. They just can’t tolerate

the modern conditions.

“Botanic gardens provide a window [and] give you some inkling of the plants

that will perform under changing conditions. That’s why it’s really important that

we don’t just grow native plants, but keep collecting plants, and experimenting,

looking for what’s going to make a good street tree in the future.”■

Losing

Our Soul

HERE’S WHY YOU NEED TO VISIT

BIG MAMA’S RIB SHACK BEFORE

THEY CLOSE

BY MICHAEL SPRAGUE I PHOTOS BY DANNY LIAO

One of Pasadena’s few remaining soul

food spots, Big Mama’s Rib Shack,

will be closing their doors on July

20 following a change of ownership of the

building they reside in.

First opened in 2002, Big Mama’s has

established itself as a destination for soul

food and live music with their Saturday night

“Down and Dirty Blues.” The expansive

Southern soul food menu is anchored by their

signature Tennessee-style takes on fried

chicken, ribs and catfish. They have Po’ boy

sandwiches, hot links, sweet potato pies, and

any Southern BBQ side one could imagine.

Soul food is one component in the long

list of factors that will leave a hole in the

city’s culinary landscape. The other draw is

Big Mama’s own founder Dargin McWhorter;

the gravel voiced 83-year-old Chattanooga

native has become his own attraction. He

came to California from Tennessee to get

away from the segregated South with $12

in his pocket and not knowing a soul. With

that small amount of cash and a drive to take

care of his mother and siblings, he became

a professional boxer, opened a recording

studio and even co-produced a gold record.

He played quarterback on his college football

team, owned a car dealership and ran

three restaurants all based on his mother’s

recipes. Even in his 80s Dargin still has a

John Wayne stature and looks like he could

still throw one of the uppercuts that earned

him a Golden Gloves championship more

than a half-century ago. Dargin has stories,

and guests are happy to take Dargin’s trip

through history. As he sits and talks to one guest you

can watch as a queue of guest’s eyes wait for Dargin

to come to their table and regale them with his

stories of his past lives.

When Dargin explains how he segued his

Forrest Gump-like myriad careers and passions

into the restaurant industry he offers an insight

into Southern life, “Down South everyone makes

their own sauce. They take pride in it,” Dargin says.

Always enterprising, Dargin saw that Southern

California was nearly devoid of the soul-food

classics and realized that he could bring to the area

what he learned from his mother — the titular “Big

Mama” — at her Chattanooga restaurant.

As Dargin entertains guests, his daughter —

Dargetta Carlisle — runs the day to day operations

of the store. Sitting with the father-daughter pair

is like watching a comedy duo of yesteryear. While

Dargin shares his stories that his daughter has likely

heard countless times, she chimes in with one-liners

that break up her father’s train of thought with a

deep laughter.

Dargetta was born and raised in Pasadena, a

byproduct of Pasadena’s public schools. She said

she cannot imagine herself living in any other city

or, more importantly, reopening Big Mama’s in any

other city. She holds out hope that they will be able

to find another spot within city limits so that they

can continue bringing her grandmother’s recipes to

people who enjoy them. Even if they find a kitchen

without a storefront where they can continue to

cater and serve through delivery services, they want

to continue.

There are layers of authenticity to Big Mama’s.

The woman’s face that acts as the official mascot

of Big Mama’s is not a stock image they bought

the rights to. It is actually Dargin’s mother. It is a

true McWhorter family affair between Dargin and

Dargetta in the front of the house and Dargin’s wife

Anita running the kitchen. They bake their pies and

cornbread, and their fried chicken is done from

scratch with their secret recipe batter.

So, before Big Mama’s shutters and the

opportunity to visit one of the most authentic

Southern experiences is gone, here are some

recommendations to make your visit count. The

famous fried chicken dinner ($12.75) is three pieces

of chicken and two sides. The chicken is served

the perfect shade of golden brown — while it has

more than enough flavor to stand alone, it would

not be true to the Southern roots if you did not pour

some hot sauce on it. As for sides, the macaroni

and cheese is served old school and simple, and

hearty. There is no crunch or baked bread crumb

top, just creamy, melted cheese, which is exactly

what you want when nearly everything else has

Cajun and Southern spices and batter. Big Mama’s

has countless sides that aren’t found everywhere,

so if you are like me, it may be hard to narrow it

down. With how incredibly low priced the sides are,

ordering more than the two that come with most

entrees won't be too big of a hit on your wallet. You

cannot go wrong with the hush puppies (five for

$3.50), candied yams ($3.75), collard greens ($3.75),

black eyed peas ($2.75), or the fried okra ($3.75).

Big Mama’s has traditionally Southern dishes,

with recipes that came from someone born and

raised in the deep South, so one should try some

of the most traditional dishes they serve to really

get the full experience. The oxtails ($21.95) carry

a higher price tag than some of the other items, but

with how seasoned and tender they are after slow

cooking, the dish is worth every penny. If you are

craving some New Orleans style fried seafood, the

Creole combo ($25.95) is where it is at, it comes

with two fried shrimp, two fried oysters, two pieces

of fried catfish and fish with hush puppies, plus

your choice of two sides. It honestly does not get

more Southern than that. Pair it with one of the

Louisiana-brewed Abita beers that they serve and

you’ll essentially walk out with a subtle Cajun drawl

and a yearning for the bayou life. And trust me, once

you’ve had it you’ll keep your eyes open for when Big

Mama’s hangs up another shingle in town.

ETHICALLY

A THERAPIST MUST TREAT BDSM

PATIENTS WITH RESPECT

Dear Patti,

My husband and I both agree that we have a good relationship, but recently we

felt like we were drifting apart and started going to couples therapy. We specifically

wanted to work on our intimacy and better communication with each other. I

thought the sessions were going pretty good until the third time. I admitted that

I had long buried sexual fantasies about being dominated and tied up. I felt very

vulnerable admitting I was interested in domination and bondage, but I wanted

to know how my husband felt about it. I was secretly hoping he might be into

experimenting with some of my kinky desires, but I didn’t want to turn him off.

Instead of being supportive, it felt like the therapist insinuated that I was

perverted for even having these ideas. She pushed for me to see her individually so

we could look at my childhood history in order to figure out where this “urge to act

out” stems from. I told her I didn’t like that she assumed I needed fixing, especially

since I’m high functioning and not suffering from depression or anxiety.

Now, I no longer trust her to work with us as a couple and certainly not in

individual therapy, which I wasn’t even seeking. I thought a therapist would create

a safe place for me to open up with my husband, not make me feel defensive and

judged. My husband was disappointed that we have to start all over again with a

new therapist, but he actually seemed excited that I wanted to open up more to him.

I wish I could find a therapist that has similar kinky interests and might

understand.

— Renee

Dear Renee,

Psychotherapy is a vulnerable, intimate journey traveled together by a patient (or

two) and a therapist. In order to be effective and healing, there must be trust and support

present. I understand that you had a negative experience, but I’m actually quite

impressed with how you handled it. You spoke up immediately when you felt judged.

When it became clear that the issue wasn’t going to be resolved, you left but you didn’t

give up, and you’re still looking for another couples therapist.

A significant number of adult Americans engage in consensual sexual behaviors

that involve bondage and discipline, domination and submission, and sadism and masochism

(collectively abbreviated BDSM). It is important that a professional therapist

who treats couples that are interested or involved in BDSM understand the difference

between abuse, violence, and BDSM, differentiating between pathological and nonpathological

behavior. A therapist needs to be able to recognize the difference between

clinically significant psychological distress and socially induced stress related to the

BDSM interests. As you know yourself, it was stressful to open up to your husband and

you felt the need to hide feelings long ago when they initially surfaced.

Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for people interested in BDSM to experience

stress related to being honest, internalized shame, relationship conflicts with existing

partners, and as you experienced, opening up in therapy. Therefore, having an accepting

therapist that can model a positive, supportive attitude is extremely beneficial and

has intense therapeutic power.

Therapists are often encouraged by their peers to explore their own countertransference

in order to be aware of how the therapy they provide is influenced by their

own emotions, values, and biases. This is especially true when working with minority

populations, such as patients involved with BDSM. Without an understanding of one’s

own emotions, a therapist’s feelings of anger, worry, or fear can manifest into a deeply

felt conviction that the patient’s behaviors are self-destructive, even without concrete

diagnostic evidence that the patient is being harmed. When that’s the case, there is a

good possibility that countertransference is occurring.

I understand your desire to be with a therapist with similar interests, but it has been

shown that having an interest in BDSM alone is not enough to qualify someone to work

with BDSM patients. Professional clinicians should have coursework, supervision,

and specialty training related to BDSM patients before ever attempting to specialize in

these issues therapeutically.

Patients who believe they are negatively judged by their therapists based upon their

BDSM interests are less likely to share information openly, which limits the therapeutic

bond and weakens the success of therapeutic interventions. Therefore, it is important

that BDSM patients receive competent treatment including respect and positive

regard.

I hope this information helps you in finding the right therapist. ■

HOME SALES

RECENT HOME CLOSINGS IN THE PASADENA WEEKLY FOOTPRINT

source: CalREsource

A PLEA FOR HELP

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 06

The Challenges

Most of these houses are in

poor or deplorable condition —

due to the lack of maintenance

on the part of Caltrans. As

mentioned above, many have

been vacant for years. Most

properties need new plumbing

and new gas and electrical

systems. Most, if not all, of the structures will need to be seismically

upgraded. Foundations will need attention and may need to be rebuilt. Many

will need new roofs and all will need to be treated for termites and other

pests. Most properties will need to be painted and to have some minimal

landscaping work.

Tenants or anyone planning to purchase a Caltrans house will need

financing, which will be very difficult, if not impossible, to find with these

houses not meeting code and in such poor condition. Buyers in the affordable

ranges will have their own set of challenges.

Caltrans is Failing to Protect Current Tenants

Caltrans continues to raise rents and is forcing tenants out — sometimes

by refusing to accept rent payments — and then leaving the property vacant

and subject to vandalism, etc. The tragic part is that many of these tenants

can no longer find affordable housing in the area, are forced to leave the

area, or live in their cars and/or become homeless. After everything that the

current tenants have suffered through the years, they do not deserve this

treatment. Instead, Caltrans should immediately freeze the rents. It is widely

believed that Caltrans is trying to ”empty” the 710 Corridor so that it might

sell all the properties at market rate. These practices are cruel and unfair and

must end immediately.

Our State’s Critical Housing Shortage

These days, California newspapers report every day on the worst housing

shortage — market-rate, workforce, moderate and low income — in the

history of our State. A recent article reports on a Riverside County family

that is moving to Idaho to achieve its share of the American Dream of home

ownership. The husband was quoted: “It is not affordable to own a house

anymore!” The article concludes that the family is: “among thousands who

are being priced out of the market due to the limited number of homes for sale

and the relentlessly rising home prices.”

With over 450 houses already planned for sale, which are suited to various

levels of housing needs, Caltrans should help address this critical housing

shortage by prioritizing the sales process of its real estate in the former 710

Corridor.

In Conclusion

We strongly urge that Caltrans arrange to meet with the mayors and their

housing officials in the three communities — Pasadena, South Pasadena and

Los Angeles — and to work in cooperation with them to develop a plan for the

sale of the Caltrans properties.

Here are a few ideas:

- The cities and Caltrans could identify and retain contractors to bring the

houses up to code

- Caltrans should provide funds for the cities to oversee the work on the

properties

- The cities could recommend several local real estate companies to assist

with the timely sale of the properties

- CalHFA should be approached for help with the affordable sales

- Local experienced nonprofit housing organizations could assist with the

affordable sales

- Caltrans must comply with the Roberti Bill, created to protect the tenants

and their neighborhoods

- Caltrans should consider selling properties to the nonprofits along the

corridor at the price that Caltrans originally paid for the property

- Vacant land should be zoned for affordable housing — when possible

These are difficult times for the Caltrans tenants, the adjacent

neighborhoods and the cities. We look to you for your strong leadership to

help us. We all need to see the 500 properties sold in a fair and timely way —

and as soon as possible.

Thank you for this opportunity to bring these important issues to your

attention. ■

TAKING THE REINS

MEMBERS OF GLENDALE-BASED 7HORSE ESCAPE THE MUSIC

INDUSTRY MACHINE AND RECLAIM THEIR CAREERS

Phil Leavitt has been in the music industry for three decades,

first banging the drums for the band dada for over 25 years

and since 2011 as the lead singer and drummer for its offshoot

sister band 7Horse. He’s seen the heights of stardom as dada scored

the worldwide hit “Dizz Knee Land” with its debut album and attendant

world tours, and revealed a tenacious ability to survive

the turbulent music industry as the band continued to maintain a

successful cult following all the way until 2017.

Now, however, Leavitt and his 7Horse bandmate Joie Calio (who

also played in dada and shares vocal duties and plays lead guitar)

have decided to turn their careers upside down and beat the record

business machine at their own game. They have already achieved

some impressive successes, with their 2012 song “Meth Lab Zoso

Sticker” having been chosen as the de facto theme song of “The

Wolf of Wall Street” by director Martin Scorsese himself in addition

to having their songs used in 55 other TV shows and films.

With their current album “Superfecta” and a string of standalone

singles they are releasing throughout this summer, they have doubled

down on the DIY approach and expanded the album’s release

with the surprisingly ever-growing fan demand. They will also kick

off the start of a planned tour next Thursday, June 27, at the Viper

Room on Sunset Boulevard, in a show that also employs their new


PW OPINION PW NEWS PW LIFE PW ARTS

approach of taking full control.

“In the past, we played clubs and had a booking agent call the promoter, the promoter

made a deal with a lowball guarantee that covers our expenses and then they promote the

show,” explains Leavitt. “They have an email list of everyone who comes through the ticketing

site, and then they hit ticket buyers with a $15 price for the promoter, and another $15 in

fees that we as a band don’t even see.

“Then they hit their email list to push the show, which could be everyone who bought a

ticket for bands from Pantera to Mariah Carey, so they’re casting a wide net, which often

doesn’t work,” adds Leavitt. “The fans are paying inflated ticket prices and it’s tough to get

word out about the gigs. So we’ve changed the whole approach. We rented the Viper Room

out and we’re running the tickets through our web site with no fees added. It’s $25 and we

hope our audiences will support that, and we’re looking to change the paradigm of how

these work. We basically said no, we’re not doing that.”

The key to all the changes is social media, which has placed power in the hands of bands

and other performers worldwide to take charge of their own destiny, rather than relying on

major corporate and media gatekeepers to give them attention. Despite the fact that they’ve

received regular airplay on more than 50 radio stations nationwide, 7Horse isn’t counting

on radio to advance their careers anymore. They are banking nearly everything on the Viper

Room show, believing that “If we can prove it in Los Angeles, we’ll do it elsewhere for everybody

else who wants to see us.”

“Do you still want to see live rock and roll?” asks Leavitt. “We need an answer on that.

We have everything riding on this one, so it’s a big one for us.”

Despite the fact that 7Horse has two of the three members of dada in it, Leavitt notes

that their sonic stylings are different. He regards dada as “a very cerebral band, with music

that hits you from the neck up, while 7Horse was created to hit you from the waist down, the

belt down.”

As such, 7Horse is intended as a rock band with a heavy blues edge, while mixing 1960s

British Invasion influences with some modern rock touches. They’ve broadened their sound

on “Superfecta” by adding Brian Whelan as a multi-instrumentalist and backing vocalist.

“It was a necessity to change our sound from dada,” says Leavitt. “We were trying to

make a dada record in 2010 and were in the middle of it and were scheduled in studio and

the guitar player told us he wasn’t available and had another project that would take up

all his time. Out of that frustration, we already had the time set aside and our engineer at

the time said why don’t you guys just come in?

“Joie and had been talking about it, we’d been listening to a lot of blues, early rock and roll,

and figured it’ll give us something to do,” he adds. “And out of that session came the ‘Zoso’

song. Sometimes the best songs come from creativity borne out of frustration. You gotta get it

out rather than keep it pent up.”

Since then, 7Horse has toured both on its own and occasionally along with playing sets of

dada songs in a 25th anniversary tour in 2017 when former member Mike Gurley was able to

join them for a run of shows. There’s been “a lot of van rides over thousands of miles,” with

Leavitt’s wife along for the ride as their tour manager and merchandise salesperson, but

Leavitt is happy to have Glendale as his home base.

“I like living here, on this side of LA, where it’s a little more open and less congested,”

says Leavitt. “I’m near the 2 Freeway, which is the access to everything. I’m close to Dodger

Stadium and love that. Joie’s in Seattle, but he lives in my house when he’s down here. We get

together as much as we can.” ■

7Horse will play with Killer Country opening at 8 p.m. June 27 at the Viper Room, 8852 Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles.

Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door. Visit 7horsemusic.com.

POPULAR OLD BLIND DOGS BRING A BIT OF

SCOTLAND BACK TO CALTECH

Lisa Verlo wanted to write a musical about sex

— a family musical, that is, with sex education

elements. The longtime Sierra Madre resident

writes musicals with her husband, Frank Simes (aka

musical director for the Who), and at the time she was

also separately writing about skeletons in the closets of

certain Norwegian ancestors. Somehow those distinct

thought trains merged and picked up speed on a new

set of tracks.

What arose from that was “Sex Rated G,” a onewoman

show with music she performed at the 2015

Edinburgh Fringe Festival, which mixed Verlo’s

personal history with “statistics, and commentary on

body shaming.” Two years later, as the #MeToo tidal

wave roared across the globe, she began retooling

“Sex” with details from her own past as an actress, a

change encouraged by director Jessica Lynn Johnson.

Verlo is performing her “musical memoir,” retitled

“Hollywoodn’t,” this Saturday and Wednesday as part of

the Hollywood Fringe festival.

She laughs now at how much her healthy, curious

teenage self “just wanted to look at naked pictures in

the library.” While working on her show, she explains, “I

ended up writing sexual memoirs. I had a very strange

introduction to sex. From 16 to 21, I was with the same

guy, my first boyfriend. We decided to wait until I

was 18 to go on the pill, and then we moved out to LA

together [from Michigan]. It ended up he was into S&M,

but young and innocent.”

18 PASADENA WEEKLY | 06.20.19

Landing in LA with said boyfriend and dreams of

being an actress, Verlo studied at the Lee Strasburg

Institute, and wrote letters to her “top 10 directors,”

including Warren Beatty, who answered and, after

lengthy conversation, invited her to a meeting at his

house. Beatty comes across as relatively generous, in

Verlo’s telling, but other characters she subsequently

encountered were far less so.

“I would be asked to compromise my values, basically,

for a part,” she recalls. “I never did any porn but I

did an AFI film where they asked me to take my top off

because I was to play a 15-year-old girl and I was 24.”

She agreed, thinking it was an art film. But when

the grad student director drove her to the first screening,

she says, “he totally molested me. I fought him off

enough to have it not go further, but he was the director

of the first movie I was in. I was really bummed because

I thought he had a girlfriend and I thought it was safe.”

Researching what happened to that director before

performing an earlier incarnation of “Hollywoodn’t” at

last year’s Fringe, Verlo learned he was a college professor

— and had been arrested: “He had molested women

in two or three colleges but nobody reported him. He

was finally brought up on [charges of] actually having a

sexual performance by a child. He did time, but only on

weekends, and he’s out already.”

That discovery galvanized her. Statistics were out

of the script; the creepy director, his mind games, and

some creatively deployed Barbie and Ken dolls were

HOUSE FAVORITES OLD BLIND DOGS, A TOP SCOTTISH GROUP, RETURNS TO

CALTECH SATURDAY FOR A PASADENA FOLK MUSIC SOCIETY SHOW.

The Dogs have been a popular draw here, having sold out shows in the

past. Saturday will mark the group’s sixth appearance at Caltech. As the

Society’s usual venue, Beckman Institute Auditorium is being renovated, so the

performance will be held in the larger Ramo Auditorium.

Hailing from Aberdeenshire, the group is known for its high-energy

performances, with soaring a fiddle playing, virtuoso pipe work and driving

percussion, making the band’s live shows must-see events for lovers of the

Scottish sound.

Their latest album is “Room with a View.”

Music starts at 8 p.m. Saturday in Ramo Auditorium, on the Caltech campus, 1200

students and Children. Call (626) 395-4652 or visit pasadenafolkmusicsociety.org

in. Refocused on her sexual awakening and personal experiences, the new

“Hollywoodn’t” confronts the “gray area” of coercion and consent. Verlo

wants to take it on the college circuit.

Onstage, she calls out Hollywood associates who professionally enable

sexual predators. One is a woman, an acting teacher who advised the ingénue

to sleep with Beatty: “You’ve probably done it for less, and he’s known for

using a lot of women in his movies that he sleeps with.”

“She was kind of jaded — like, this is what goes on. But I wasn’t, because I

had only been with one boyfriend,” Verlo insists, laughing. “I had not done it

for less!”

That exchange inspired one of the hour-long show’s songs, the tongue-incheek

“You’ve Done It for Less,” whose slinky beat evokes tacky lounges and

cheap drinks:

“So he wants a little kiss, big deal

Then he wants you to undress, get real …

Run out and buy some lingerie

To hang on that fine line between work and play

And bask in the glory of being pursued

It’s all in the moves and the attitude”

“I could have made a misery out of it,” Verlo acknowledges, but a little

laughter helps process weighty themes. And she still enjoys her teenage

self’s sexual curiosity and love of flirtation. Bottom line: we need “a new

language, a new vocabulary — not just a verbal vocabulary, but a physical

vocabulary” about consent.

“I feel like this is very cathartic, finally being able to come clean — not

just as a person with my experiences, but even with myself. I started uncovering

all the ways I had framed all these things that happened, just to feel

OK about it. That’s also why my show [asks], what have we been conditioned

to accept as inevitable? We were all just so conditioned. Child molestation

is all about grooming. But we are groomed as a culture, by our media, to

accept certain behavior and certain standards. …

“What’s really amazing about doing this show: We uncover more and

more all the time. You go deeper and deeper. Because when you really go

for the truth of what’s underneath the motivations, that’s where you get

the gold. That’s where you start resonating with others.” n

Ivan Amodei

Magic With a Message

ILLUSIONIST IVAN AMODEI BRINGS LIFE-CHANGING MAGIC TO THE ALEX THEATRE

BY CARL KOZLOWSKI

You have to be one hell of a magician to

confound the legendary magic duo of

Penn & Teller on their CW network TV

show “Penn & Teller: Fool Us,” but Ivan

Amodei is one of the few to have accomplished

just that. In the past couple of

years, he has parlayed that achievement

into a fast-rising career that brings him

to the stage of the historic Alex Theatre

in Glendale on Saturday night.

Titled “Secrets & Illusions,” the

show features Amodei leading audiences

on an epic journey to discover the

secrets of life.

Set on the dark and deserted

streets of Paris, audiences will enter the

legendary Louvre Museum, where an

enchanting musical muse escorts them

through galleries, while Ivan uncovers

life’s greatest mysteries deep inside

the priceless works of art, one dazzling

illusion at a time.

The 90-minute spectacular focuses

on providing “magic with a message,”

and displays Amodei’s signature style of

thought-provoking vignettes, audience

participation, and storytelling.

“The show isn’t just magic tricks, it

actually has parts that address important

life things like facing fears, making

choices and finding love all in a funny

way with illusions that support the message,”

says Amodei. “I say ‘we’re gonna

face your fear today,’ and a spectator

comes on stage and we play Russian

Roulette with a 12 inch hunting knife

hidden in a paper bag straight up and

you have to decide which one to slam

your hand into.

“There’ll be a large butcher knife with

a 12-inch blade, hidden under a paper bag

drilled into a stand so the blade is straight

up,” Amodei continues. “I cover the entire

stand and knife with a paper bag and put

the identical ones that are empty there

too, then mix them up on the table so we

don’t know which is which. And I tell her

the game is slam hand on the bag and

then come to which one will have the

knife. Most people run out and I have to

get a second participant. That just adds

to the suspense, and the whole point is to

face your fears.”

The 45-year-old Amodei was born

in Sicily and moved to the US at the age

of two, becoming fascinated by magic

when he saw a family friend performing

tricks when he was 5. He first started

performing small-group magic as a

waiter to earn better tips while saving

for college, then moved on to parlor-size

audiences before going fully professional

with large-scale crowds.

Rather than waiting for gigs to come

to him or languishing at a day job and

performing at parties for side money,

Amodei created a full-fledged show

after college and took the risk of selling

tickets to theaters he rented.

“The show’s illusions are demonstrations

of messages in life, not a

magic show where I put a girl in a box

and saw her in half,” says Amodei.

“This is a show about thinking about

the messages and facing your fears.

The participation allows the show to go

in a different direction. It’s a show that

actually will help inspire you to move on

to the next level of your life.

“A lot of people are stuck and

don’t know what they want to do,” he

concludes. “This is about how you can

achieve more and demonstrate and

prove what I’m saying is right. All of the

show’s illusions have premises in them,

including finding love, purpose in life,

why are you on this planet, your destiny.

What if you said yes to that job, no to

that job, move to this state? Things that

actually prove certain things about life.

It’s a really different show.” n

Ivan Amodei performs “Secrets & Illusions” at

7:30 p.m. Sat. at the Alex Theatre, 216 N. Brand

Blvd., Glendale. Tickets are $35 to $85. Call

Total Winner

‘THE LAST BLACK MAN IN SAN FRANCISCO’ SPOTLIGHTS

HUGELY TALENTED NEWCOMER JIMMIE FAILS

It’s no secret that San Francisco is beset

with all manner of troubles these days,

from rampant homelessness to terribly

unsanitary conditions in much of its prime

locations. Yet its huge hills and beautiful historic

architecture still hold a magical allure

for millions, and a young actor-writer named

Jimmie Fails makes a dramatic stand for

its preservation in the stunning new drama

“The Last Black Man in San Francisco.”

Fails has come out of seemingly nowhere

with the film, in which he plays a somewhat

fictional version of himself and co-wrote the

story with his best friend and director, Joe

Talbot. The story follows Fails and his best

friend, Monty (Jonathan Majors), as Jimmie

tries desperate and inventive measures to

reclaim his childhood home after 12 years

when its owners are forced to leave the

premises.

Jimmie has had the deck stacked

against him his entire life, with a mother

who abandoned him years ago and a father

who is a former junkie and subsists by

making and selling pirated DVDs in a dingy

hotel room. Monty is stuck working in a

fish shop while dreaming of becoming a

playwright, and spends much of his time

outside of work listening to the conversations

and arguments of the people he sees

on the streets around him.

When Jimmie realizes that the older

white couple who took over the house when

his family fell apart are being evicted due to

a familial property dispute, he and Monty

break in and start squatting there. He has

always been told his grandfather built the

fantastical house, and even manages to

reclaim his grandfather’s assortment of odd

furniture and other possessions to fill its

massive empty space.

On the one hand, this brings Jimmie great

happiness. On the other, it also creates a

Jimmie Fails, left, and Jonathan Majors in “The Last Black Man in San Francisco“

slow-building tension as they struggle to remain

unnoticed and wonder when the other

shoe is going to drop.

“Last” doesn’t rely much on conventional

narrative, but rather is a mesmerizing visual

poem and mood piece that grabs viewers

from the start and never lets go. Co-writer

and director Joe Talbot, the real Fails’ reallife

best friend, kicks things off with an aweinspiring

opening sequence in which Jimmie

and Monty hop on the same skateboard and

soar through the streets of San Francisco on

their way to work.

As they zip through the streets and soar

up and down its incredible hills, numerous

images of the people they pass are freezeframed

or slow-motioned as they stare at the

two young friends flying by. This visual trick

and many others are employed by Talbot

throughout the film, creating a unique look

from start to finish that recalls and even surpasses

the dazzling cinematography of Spike

Lee’s visionary early work.

With Emile Mosseri’s stirring musical

score that combines orchestral power with a

jazzy undertone, “Last” becomes a feast for

the senses. Fails is making his literal feature

film debut here as both writer and actor, and

the result caused a sensation at this year’s

Sundance Film Festival.

In fact, The Hollywood Reporter critic

Todd McCarthy regarded it as “by far the

best narrative film I saw at Sundance…Every

scene is fresh and unpredictable, visual

poetry and realism are exquisitely woven together.”

Such high praise is richly deserved,

and if you’re looking for an intelligent and

compelling film amid the bombast of summer

blockbusters, this is likely your best bet

of the season. n

Notice of Public Hearing

City Council

2019 Public Health Goals Report on

Water Quality

PROJECT DESCRIPTION: The purpose

of the hearing is for Pasadena City

Council to consider staff’s recommendation

to accept and approve the 2019

Public Health Goals (ìPHGî) Report.

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City

Council will hold a public hearing to

receive testimony, oral and written, and

make a determination on Pasadena Water

and Power’s 2019 PHG Report. The

hearing is scheduled for:

Date: August 26, 2019

Time: 7:00 p.m.

Place: Pasadena City Hall

Council Chambers, Room S249 100

North Garfi eld Avenue

ENVIRONMENTAL DETERMINATION:

California Health and Safety Code Section

116470 (b) requires water utilities

that serve more than 10,000 service

connections to prepare a PHG Report

every three years in addition to the annual

Consumer Confidence Report. The

PHG Report must contain information

on the ìdetectionî of any contaminants at

concentrations greater than the PHG or

the Maximum Contaminant Level Goal

(ìMCLGî) set for the contaminant. The

purpose of the legislation, which establishes

this requirement, is to provide

consumers with information on levels

of contaminants that are even below

the enforceable mandatory Maximum

Contaminant Level (ìMCLî) so they are

aware of whatever risks that might be

posed by the presence of such constituents.

?PHG The Public Health Goal is a

non-enforceable goal. It is a ìrisk assessmentî

value that estimates the lowest

concentration of a substance which

would not pose a signifi cant public

health risk. It is determined solely on

health effects. The PHG is set by the

California Environmental Protection

Agency’s Offi ce of Environmental Health

Hazard Assessment.

?MCLG The Maximum Contaminant

Level Goal is a non-enforceable

standard. It is a ìrisk assessmentî value

that estimates the lowest concentration

of a substance which would not pose a

signifi cant public health risk. It is determined

solely on health effects. The

MCLG is set by the United States Environmental

Protection Agency.

?MCL The Maximum Contaminant

Level is a legally enforceable standard.

It is a ìrisk managementî value which is

as close to the PHG or MCLG as technologically

and economically feasible. For

example, if the PHG is set at a concentration

that is too small to measure, the

MCL cannot be set at the PHG. If the Best

Available Technology (ìBATî) for the removal

of a contaminant can only reduce

the concentration to a certain amount,

the MCL cannot be set below that value.

All Community Water Systems (ìCWSî)

must comply with the MCL.

PUBLIC INFORMATION: Any interested

party or their representative may appear

at the meeting and comment on the

project. Written comments may also be

mailed to the City Clerk’s offi ce (100 N.

Garfi eld Avenue, Room S228, Pasadena

CA 91101) for transmittal to the City

Council. If you wish to challenge this

matter in court you may be limited to

raising only those issues you or someone

else raised at the public hearing

described in this notice, or written correspondence

delivered to the hearing

body, at or prior to the public hearing.

OF SAID COUNTY. NOTICE TO PO-

TENTIAL 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 offi ce 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, benefi ciary, 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-

trustee’s sale or visit this Internet Web

site http://www.qualityloan.com, using

the file number assigned to this foreclosure

by the Trustee: CA-14-650064-

RY. Information about postponements

that are very short in duration or that

occur close in time to the scheduled

sale may not immediately be refl ected

in the telephone information or on the

Internet Web site. The best way to verify

postponement information is to attend

the scheduled sale. The undersigned

Trustee disclaims any liability for any

incorrectness of the property address

or other common designation, if any,

shown herein. If no street address or

other common designation is shown,

directions to the location of the property

may be obtained by sending a written

request to the benefi ciary within 10

days of the date of first publication of

this Notice of Sale. If the sale is set aside

for any reason, including if the Trustee

is unable to convey title, the Purchaser

at the sale shall be entitled only to a return

of the monies paid to the Trustee.

This shall be the Purchaser’s sole and

exclusive remedy. The purchaser shall

have no further recourse against the

Trustor, the Trustee, the Benefi ciary, the

Benefi ciary’s Agent, or the Benefi ciary’s

Attorney. If you have previously been

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 offi ce

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, benefi ciary,

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 refl ected

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
