A ‘RAW’ IDEA<br />

Re: “Cause for Concern: Council<br />

members and developer want testing<br />

for toxins possibly left by weapons<br />

research at proposed housing site,”<br />

May 9<br />

I was over at Kaiser Medical offices on<br />

Foothill last week and parked my car on<br />

the top deck of the garage. This would be<br />

a wonderful spot to have video cameras<br />

set up (along with air monitors) to view<br />

the Space Bank property and capture<br />

chemical movement in the air, as well as the flow of any dust generated<br />

by the project, and to observe that proper methods are being used<br />

as proclaimed in the RAW (removal action workplan) for the project.<br />

This location would test movement of dust flow for a portion of<br />

the property — north, east and south. At the same time, a camera and<br />

air monitors at the west end of the building could capture air flow to<br />

the west, south and north, getting a complete measure of the RAW<br />

process and making sure the process is safe for the public.<br />

I think another public meeting should be planned to hear answers<br />

to questions asked by the public and share any other information that<br />

might be of concern. Research has provided spotty records from the<br />

state Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) investigation.<br />

~ RICHARD LUCZYSKI<br />

OBVIOUS SOLUTION<br />

Co2 levels, worldwide, have reached a disastrous level everywhere.<br />

Without a fast solution, we may be going the way of Venus, no exaggeration<br />

intended.<br />

There is an obvious solution, folks: trees. Trees thrive on Co2. In<br />

return, they produce oxygen. So, the obvious solution is for everyone<br />

in the nation, who can do so, to get out and plant trees anywhere and<br />

everywhere.<br />

During World War II, millions<br />

of citizens around the nation,<br />

both children and adults,<br />

went out and collected scrap<br />

metal and old tires. Millions<br />

of tons of scrap metal were<br />

collected. Millions of old tires<br />

were collected. The government<br />

was fully behind this<br />

effort and had signs in every<br />

school and every meeting place<br />

encouraging people to collect<br />

and turn in scrap metal and old<br />

tires.<br />

What we need right now is<br />

the same type of effort used in<br />

World War II, with the government<br />

helping out in the following<br />

ways: 1) Provide bags of<br />

seeds (for trees that absorb the<br />

most Co2, while producing the<br />

most oxygen) to all citizens<br />

who can or will be able to plant<br />

same. 2) Provide clear instructions<br />

on what to do and how to<br />

do it. 3) Distribute free seeds<br />

in all schools and community<br />

centers nationwide.<br />

Can we do the foregoing?<br />

Only if everyone starts bringing<br />

it to the attention of the<br />

president, as well as their state<br />

and federal representatives.<br />

Write letters, make phone calls,<br />

send out e-mails. Don’t just sit<br />

there folks. For God’s sake, DO<br />

SOMETHING!<br />

Otherwise Earth really will<br />

begin to resemble Venus!<br />

•GUEST OPINION•<br />

BY ROBERT M. NELSON AND MARGUERITE RENNER<br />

THE LEADERSHIP CRISIS<br />

NOW IS THE TIME FOR DEMOCRATS TO CONSIDER A SANDERS-WARREN TICKET<br />

The Democratic presidential debates of 2019 are under way. The early debates span<br />

two nights because of the large number of candidates. By December there will have<br />

been six debates. We can expect that the field will narrow as voters becomes better<br />

acquainted with the candidates.<br />

The debates are sanctioned by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) which<br />

is the legal authority for all Democratic Party organizations throughout the country.<br />

The DNC is officially neutral in these debates but, as in the past, the preferences of the<br />

party insiders are being “loudly whispered” by local elected officials, many of whom<br />

depend on the Democratic establishment for campaign support.<br />

Recently, many presidential candidates previewed their campaigns at the California<br />

Democratic Party state convention in San Francisco. Fourteen of the candidates spoke<br />

to 3,000 Democratic activist delegates from around the state. The candidates made<br />

earnest presentations to the delegates describing the problems facing society and<br />

proposing programmatic solutions to those problems.<br />

It’s About Wealth Polarization, Stupid!<br />

It’s hardly a secret that wealth has become concentrated in the hands of fewer<br />

people since the start of the Clinton administration 30 years ago. Clinton’s North<br />

American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) exported hundreds of thousands of middleclass<br />

jobs to overseas sweatshops. At home, displaced workers were reduced to<br />

working part-time jobs in the “gig economy” without health care or retirement benefits.<br />

Banks sold financial aid packages to students and lobbied for tuition increases at<br />

public colleges and universities. New college graduates found the loan repayments<br />

were scandalously high. This set the stage for the Democratic campaigns of 2016 and<br />

today.<br />

In response to the crisis, a precious few of the Democratic candidates offer<br />

dramatic solutions.<br />

In 2016 the sole critic of NAFTA, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, proposed a $15 an<br />

hour minimum wage, Medicare for all, and a return to a highly graduated progressive<br />

income tax. He also proposed enlightened social concepts such as abolition of<br />

the death penalty and criminal justice reform. Sanders did not get the Democratic<br />

nomination but he attracted a loyal following.<br />

Sanders is back again in the 2020 campaign but this time he has a competitive<br />

colleague in the presidential quest — Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.<br />

Warren’s core economic proposal is a wealth tax. This dramatic concept would<br />

support society with a tax on accumulated wealth — not just income. Accumulated<br />

wealth over generations creates the ruling class of a capitalist system. In the past,<br />

the estate tax served as a minor damper on this effect. However, it has been cut<br />

significantly starting in the 1990s and the cuts continue to today.<br />

We now live in a highly stratified society.<br />

The Circular Firing Squad<br />

Sanders is a self-described democratic socialist, while Warren is a very progressive<br />

capitalist. Combined, they represent the left progressive end of the 2020 Democratic<br />

party debate. They are constantly pressured by the news media to distinguish<br />

themselves from each other. Both Warren and Sanders refuse to do this.<br />

The political left has a remarkable pattern of turning on itself rather than looking<br />

outward. This is often called the “circular firing squad with guns pointed inward.”<br />

Instead, Sanders and Warren concentrate their focus on the problems of capitalist<br />

society and offer programs to address them.<br />

The Old Establishment<br />

Late last year, many local elected Democrats began whispering loudly that they<br />

had a preferred Democratic ticket for 2020 — Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. However,<br />

this contrived marriage has experienced a rocky start. For example, Biden, was a<br />

longtime supporter of the Hyde amendment which prohibited the poor from access to<br />

women’s health care services. He changed his position a few days after the California<br />

Democratic Party convention in an apparent nod to his possible running mate.<br />

Harris did address the delegates but she was overshadowed by Warren, who spoke<br />

in the same session. In keeping with the Warren-Sanders non-aggression pact, Sanders<br />

chose not to speak the same day.<br />

Biden, the favorite of party insiders, ducked the California convention, missing the<br />

opportunity to expose himself to the 3,000 Democratic Party activists. Voters will have<br />

ample opportunity to schmooze with Biden later — at lavish fundraisers in homes<br />

located west of La Cienega Boulevard and north of the I-10 freeway.<br />

As we absorb the debate, perhaps we should think about a Sanders-Warren ticket<br />

and its program for America. They advocate ideas whose time has come. ■<br />

CASUALTIES OF THE WAR ON DRUGS DEMAND A SHARE OF CITY’S CANNABIS BOUNTY<br />

BY ANDRÉ COLEMAN<br />

As more states legalize marijuana and private companies begin<br />

applying for licenses to sell their wares in upscale places like<br />

Pasadena, minority leaders are demanding that communities<br />

of color share in the wealth of the billion-dollar industry — a once<br />

illegal drug turned lucrative product that for years has led to the<br />

disproportionate incarceration of African Americans and Latinos.<br />

Earlier this month, Pasadena officials announced the selection<br />

of six businesses leading the city into the now legitimate world of<br />

selling weed. They are: Integral Associates Dena, Tony Fong, the<br />

Atrium Group, Harvest Pasadena, Sweetflower Pasadena and MME<br />

Pasadena Retail. The six were top scorers among the applicants in<br />

Pasadena and can now begin the process of obtaining permits to<br />

sell marijuana in Pasadena.<br />

WEEKLY WEATHER<br />

However, all six owners proposed Old Pasadena locations for<br />

their businesses, leading to calls for social equity by activists,<br />

who insist that minority communities unfairly impacted by the<br />

war on drugs should be able to share in the wealth now that<br />

marijuana is legal.<br />

“I appreciate that some members of our community would like<br />

to see social equity/community benefits play a larger role in the<br />

selection process or perhaps serve as the sole determinate and<br />

I have met with several people who hold this view, and I respect<br />

their opinions,” City Manager Steve Mermell told the Pasadena<br />

Weekly. “Nevertheless, I believe we have struck the right balance<br />

for our city through a fair and transparent process.”<br />

Based on public input, the city modified its requirements and<br />

ALL SAINTS OFFERS<br />

SANCTUARY AS TRUMP<br />

THREATENS ICE RAIDS<br />

On the heels of an announcement by President<br />

Donald Trump that 2,000 undocumented immigrants<br />

would be rounded up in 10 cities, one of<br />

them Los Angeles, All Saints Church in Pasadena<br />

has promised sanctuary to those who fear<br />

deportation.<br />

“All Saints Church condemns these raids and<br />

the actions of President Trump which authorized<br />

them,” said Rector Mike Kinman. “Any individuals<br />

or families who are targeted by ICE [Immigration<br />

and Customs Enforcement] for deportation will be<br />

provided sanctuary in our sacred space.”<br />

Pre-dawn raids and arrests were scheduled<br />

to take place this week, according to CNN, but on<br />

Sunday Trump tweeted that he was putting them<br />

off for two weeks while he worked with Democrats<br />

on immigration issues.<br />

“At the request of Democrats, I have delayed<br />

the illegal immigration removal process (deportation)<br />

for two weeks to see if the Democrats and<br />

Republicans can get together and work out a<br />

solution to the asylum and loophole problems at<br />

the Southern Border. If not, deportations start,”<br />

the president said.<br />

While All Saints does perform as a sanctuary<br />

for undocumented immigrants, Pasadena is<br />

not a sanctuary city, a term which has no legal<br />

definition.<br />

In 2017, the City Council unanimously passed<br />

an official resolution declaring that “The city of<br />

Pasadena will not enforce federal immigration<br />

laws and the city manager will ensure that all city<br />

policies are consistent with this declaration.”<br />

According to CNN, ICE was also scheduled<br />

to make arrests in Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago,<br />

Denver, Houston, Miami, New Orleans, New York,<br />

and San Francisco.<br />

After the news broke, some cities immediately<br />

fired back, saying they wouldn’t cooperate with the<br />

raids and warned residents to make sure they had<br />

functional locks on their doors. Residents are not<br />

required to open their doors to officials from ICE<br />

unless they have a warrant signed by a judge.<br />

“This action by our government is the worst<br />

of fear-mongering and white supremacy,” Kinman<br />

wrote. “Beloved, productive and irreplaceable<br />

images of God, including many from our own<br />

Pasadena and All Saints community, once again<br />

have to fear that they will have their families torn<br />

apart, perhaps forever, which causes devastating<br />

harm to them and the communities of which<br />

they are a part. It is an unconscionable use of<br />

fear to continue to divide our nation for political<br />

purposes.”<br />

JUDGE RULES AGAINST COUNTY<br />

IN ‘BIG DIG’ LAWSUIT<br />

BY ANDRÉ COLEMAN<br />

A Los Angeles Superior Court judge postponed a trial over<br />

a lawsuit filed against the Los Angeles County Flood Control<br />

District’s so-called “Big Dig” project in the reservoir Tim Brick<br />

of Devil’s Gate Dam, located in Hahamongna Watershed<br />

Park, ruling the county did not provide enough time for people to comment on the<br />

project’s environmental impact report.<br />

The Flood Control District is currently in the early stages of removing 1.7 million<br />

cubic yards of sediment and debris that has accumulated in the dam’s reservoir — a<br />

project that could last four years and require daily hauling of up to 475 truckloads of<br />

dirt.<br />

Tim Brick, managing director of the Arroyo Seco Foundation, which along with<br />

the Pasadena Audubon sued the district, said the foundation agreed to the postponement<br />

because it was not its intention to stop the sediment removal project.<br />

“Our goal has been to minimize the negative aspects of the project, such as<br />

noise, dust, traffic and air pollution, and to ensure that the resulting Hahamongna<br />

management program is ongoing and protects the unique environmental values of<br />

the area,” said Brick, who is also a member of the Metropolitan Water District board<br />

of directors.<br />

“We want the county to treat the Arroyo Seco like a river and to implement<br />

nature-based solutions that will serve our region well as we face climate change and<br />

the challenges of nature,” Brick said in a prepared statement.<br />

If the two sides cannot develop an agreement, Judge James Chalfant will hear<br />

oral arguments on July 30 regarding the tentative ruling. If he finalizes the tentative<br />

decision, he will order the Flood Control District to revise and recirculate the project’s<br />

EIR and set aside or vacate the project’s approvals. All project activity would<br />

then cease pending revision of the project’s environmental document.<br />

The Arroyo Seco Foundation and the Pasadena Audubon Society are expected<br />

to work with county flood control officials to develop a comprehensive settlement<br />

agreement.<br />

“The Pasadena Audubon Society is gratified that the court recognizes that the<br />

county has failed to work transparently with the public, despite their frequent claims<br />

to the contrary,” said Laura Solomon, president of the Pasadena Audubon Society.<br />

“We hope that the county will do its job to protect the land, the birds, and the<br />

people by shrinking the size of the permanent footprint of the project, using the<br />

cleanest trucks possible to move the sediment, and truly restoring the Hahamongna<br />

basin, especially the nesting habitat they have destroyed,” Solomon said. n<br />

AMERICAFEST RETURNS TO<br />

THE ROSE BOWL JULY 4TH<br />

BY ANDRÉ COLEMAN<br />

Pasadena will once again celebrate Independence Day<br />

at the Rose Bowl with AmericaFest, the West Coast’s<br />

largest fireworks show.<br />

The 93rd annual Americafest event, which will include<br />

live music, veterans’ tributes, motocross stunts and a<br />

Darryl Dunn<br />

massive fireworks display, starts at 7 p.m. in the stadium, 1001 Rose Bowl Drive.<br />

The show is among the oldest fireworks shows in LA County, and the Rose<br />

Bowl was recently recognized by Los Angeles Magazine as one of the best places in<br />

LA to watch fireworks.<br />

“It’s exciting because this year’s Rose Bowl AmericaFest celebration will feature<br />

the largest fireworks display in the western United States,” said Darryl Dunn, Rose<br />

Bowl general manager. “This year will be the Southland’s biggest and most exciting<br />

musical pyrotechnic show as we celebrate our nation’s birthday.”<br />

The event will honor the Disney remake of “The Lion King,” which hits<br />

theaters on July 19. Several Southland choirs will be on hand to sing songs<br />

from the film.<br />

The new film blends live-action, state-of-the-art virtual-reality techniques<br />

and computer generated imagery to bring the iconic characters to life in a whole<br />

different way. Walt Disney Records’ highly acclaimed a cappella group DCappella<br />

joins the celebration. The award-winning USC a capella group Socal VoCals will<br />

also perform.<br />

The show will also pay tribute to the 50th anniversary of one of the greatest<br />

moments in American history with a preview from “Apollo 11: The Immersive Live<br />

Show,” an experience that takes visitors from countdown to launch of the giant<br />

Saturn V rocket to the moon.<br />

In addition, TNT Freestyle Motocross returns to take to the air, performing<br />

gasp-inducing motorcycle stunts.<br />

The stadium parking lot opens at noon, and the Family Fun Zone in Area H<br />

opens at 2 p.m. Doors open at 5 p.m.<br />

Performances begin at 7 p.m. and the fireworks kick off at 9 p.m. Admission is<br />

$15 to $30, children under 5 are free. No charge for active military and three family<br />

members.<br />

included categories on “social equity and community<br />

benefits in the application and asked specifically how<br />

cannabis owners would ensure that persons most<br />

harmed by cannabis criminalization and poverty<br />

through a share in the ownership, management,<br />

employment or other benefits resulting in high<br />

quality, well-paying jobs and/or other benefits,”<br />

Mermell said.<br />

According to the applications of the six<br />

businesses chosen, only the Atrium Group has a<br />

clear social equity plan.<br />

Atrium plans to hold seminars to teach local<br />

residents convicted of marijuana crimes how to<br />

expunge their records. Further, the group has also<br />

partnered with Ideal Youth, and will provide job<br />

training for local youth.<br />

“Cannabis criminalization and its enforcement<br />

has had a long-term impact on low-income and<br />

minority community members in the city of<br />

Pasadena and throughout our nation,” said Ismael<br />

Trone, head of the nonprofit organization that<br />

will work with the Atrium Group. “For the city<br />

of Pasadena to incorporate social equity into its<br />

application process is a giant step toward repairing<br />

the harm caused by the war on drugs and disparate<br />

enforcement of cannabis prohibition.”<br />

Integral Associates, the applicant that scored the<br />

highest in the city’s process, will form a group led<br />

by former City Councilman and current Chamber of<br />

Commerce CEO Paul Little. Little told the Pasadena<br />

Weekly social equity would be a major part of the<br />

group’s focus.<br />

“The idea is to help them negotiate the<br />

community and help them with social equity,” Little<br />

said. “We will be figuring out how they are going to<br />

support the community and how they are going to<br />

implement hiring and have as much of an impact on<br />

the local community as possible.”<br />

In its application, the company also said it would<br />

hardest by the war on drugs would benefit from the<br />

company’s presence in Pasadena.<br />

According to a 2009 story by Jake Armstrong<br />

appearing in the Pasadena Weekly, between 2004 and<br />

2008 African Americans accounted for more than<br />

half of all marijuana arrests in Pasadena — three<br />

times the number of whites and almost twice the<br />

number of Latinos — though blacks made up only 14<br />

percent of the city’s population.<br />

Black residents were arrested on felony<br />

marijuana charges in Pasadena at far higher<br />

percentages than any other ethnic group, having<br />

been charged with more than half of all felony<br />

marijuana arrests since 2004, though nearly 90<br />

percent of the marijuana-related offenses during that<br />

period were misdemeanors.<br />

According to recent studies, California arrest<br />

rates for marijuana-related crimes have declined<br />

dramatically since legalization, but the stark racial<br />

disparity remains in place as black people were still<br />

nations closer to<br />

war. According to<br />

the Washington Post,<br />

Iran has warned that other<br />

drones could face the same fate.<br />

three times as likely as whites to be arrested in 2016.<br />

“As white people exploit the changing tide on<br />

marijuana, the racism that drove its prohibition<br />

is ignored,” Vincent M. Southerland, executive<br />

director of NYU Law’s Center on Race, Inequality<br />

and the Law, and Johanna B. Steinberg of the Bronx<br />

Defenders, recently wrote for The New York Times.<br />

“So are the consequences for black communities,<br />

where the war on drugs is most heavily waged.”<br />

In March, African-American lawmakers in New<br />

York announced they would block a push to legalize<br />

recreational marijuana in New York unless people of<br />

color were guaranteed a share of the industry. They<br />

want to be assured that some of that money will go<br />

toward job training programs, and that minority<br />

entrepreneurs will receive licenses to cultivate or<br />

sell marijuana.<br />

According to Assemblywoman Crystal Peoples-<br />

Stokes, the first African-American woman to serve<br />

as Assembly majority leader in New York, all 10<br />

states that have established laws legalizing cannabis,<br />

including California, made the same mistake.<br />

“I haven’t seen anyone do it correctly,” she told<br />

The New York Times.<br />

“They thought we were going to trust that at the<br />

end of the day, these communities would be invested<br />

in. But that’s not something I want to trust,” she<br />

continued. “If it’s not required in the statute [in New<br />

York], then it won’t happen.”<br />

Trone called on the city to do more.<br />

“Social equity goals should be to promote<br />

equitable ownership and employment opportunities<br />

in the cannabis industry to decrease disparities in<br />

life outcomes for marginalized communities. Ideal<br />

Youth research into the career opportunities in<br />

the cannabis industry has led the organization to<br />

embrace the cannabis industry as a legitimate career<br />

path and inform local parents and society as a whole<br />

to also embrace the cannabis industry as a career<br />

path,” Trone said.<br />

Los Angeles, Oakland, Sacramento, San<br />

Francisco and Long Beach have established social<br />

equity cannabis programs.<br />

Last year, California Gov. Jerry Brown signed<br />

legislation — the California Cannabis Equity Act<br />

of 2018 — intended to help municipalities increase<br />

participation in the programs. Lawmakers have<br />

allocated $10 million toward the effort.<br />

“There are so many opportunities in the<br />

cannabis industry for young, motivated, bright<br />

minds,” Trone said. “It’s a great opportunity<br />

for young adults to get into a growing dynamic<br />

field and learn so much about so many different<br />

industries. Cannabis is a stimulating learning<br />

environment because it touches on so many<br />

different industries such as legal, political,<br />

financial, retail, agricultural, marketing, science,<br />

etc. These opportunities provide young people a<br />

peek into how these disciplines interact and make<br />

cannabis ideal for career growth.” n<br />

( GIDDYUP, CROWN<br />

CITY SLICKERS )<br />

PASADENA MUSEUM OF HISTORY CELEBRATES CITY’S BIRTHDAY<br />

WITH AN AFTERNOON OF WILD WEST FUN<br />

BY CARL KOZLOWSKI<br />

Pasadena is a colorful city that has unlimited opportunities to celebrate<br />

its unique qualities, and each June the Pasadena Museum of History<br />

(PMH) hosts a party that creates a year’s worth of memories for one and<br />

all. This Sunday, the museum will outdo itself with an afternoon filled with<br />

Western and cowboy-themed fun as it hosts the city’s official 133rd<br />

birthday party, tied to its current exhibit, “Giddyup! Children<br />

Take the Reins.”<br />

The jam-packed afternoon of entertainment and activities<br />

includes a colossal cake designed by Baja Ranch Supermarket<br />

Pasadena to feed the anticipated 1,500 guests, as well as performances<br />

by five-time international trick roping record holder<br />

Christy Lewis and the chance to rope a wooden steer. But the<br />

fun doesn’t stop there, as attendees can clap their hands and<br />

stomp their feet to classic Western and cowboy songs, or climb<br />

aboard and explore an authentic reproduction of a Wells<br />

Fargo Concord Stagecoach , one of America’s most legendary<br />

vehicles.<br />

The Crown City Chorus will entertain the crowds with barbershop<br />

renditions of favorite Western tunes, while Art 2 Go’s Miss Helen, “The<br />

Fastest Crafter in the West!” will help attendees create their own custom<br />

cowboy hats. Add in the chance to do gold panning, have water splashing<br />

fun with “Pump and Splash” and meet Mayor Terry Tornek and his trusty<br />

deputies, and your family will be galloping back home as happy campers.<br />

“This theme was picked in conjunction with our exhibit, which is called<br />

‘Giddyup! Children Take the Reins,’ an amazing collection of carousel, rock-<br />

ing and hobby horses all designed for children,” says Brad Macneil,<br />

the PHM director of education and public programming,<br />

who’s overseeing the day’s grand festivities. “A<br />

local collector named Lourinda Gray has<br />

them and loaned them to us for<br />

the exhibit. Since there are<br />

all these horses we went with<br />

a Western theme of ‘Yahoo!<br />

Happy Birthday Pasadena!’<br />

“We’ll be turning the grounds<br />

into a Western world with world<br />

champion trick ropers, gold panning,<br />

line dance lessons, the Wells<br />

Fargo stagecoach, the Crown City<br />

Chorus singing cowboy and western<br />

songs,” adds Macneil. “There’s a lot<br />

going on.”<br />

Macneil notes that Gray, who lives<br />

in Pasadena, also helped another PMH<br />

exhibit years ago by supplying carousel<br />

animals. He notes that “carousels are<br />

disappearing because of insurance and<br />

various other issues,” yet Gray has spent decades<br />

collecting and restoring them herself.<br />

She maintains a warehouse in the Duarte area where she keeps them all and<br />

works on them.<br />

Running through Sept. 15, the “Giddyup!” exhibit contains more than 35<br />

smaller-scaled carousel horses and exotic creatures that visitors of all ages will<br />

be able to see and touch. An enchanting photo booth features a carousel polar<br />

bear designed by J.R. Anderson circa 1920 that children and adults can climb<br />

on for a keepsake photo, and plenty of other creatures that kids can climb on as<br />

they rock, bounce and roll.<br />

The goal is to bring back<br />

awareness of a time when<br />

carousels enabled children<br />

to imitate their favorite<br />

movie cowboys. Gray’s<br />

Running Horse studio<br />

in Irwindale houses<br />

memorabilia and carousel<br />

figures of all sizes<br />

from her collection,<br />

particularly from the<br />

Golden Age of carousels<br />

from 1861 to 1920, within<br />

its 7,000 square feet, and she carefully<br />

restores figures for other collectors and operational<br />

carousels as well.<br />

“This is the official birthday party for the city and we’ve been<br />

doing this many years,” notes Macneil. “The first big one we did was the<br />

125th anniversary of the city and this is the 133rd. It’s very family oriented and a<br />

way to celebrate the history of the city.<br />

“The city was incorporated in June 1886 and that’s why we always have it<br />

in June,” he continues. “We have a lot of community partners that come in and<br />

help us. We have a cake sponsored by Baja Ranch Supermarket. We expect 1,500<br />

to 2,000 people, so it’s a big cake. We’re fortunate to get the Wells Fargo stagecoach<br />

here too, and many community groups like the Jaycees having tables<br />

sharing information. Most will have interactive activities for people to visit, so<br />

no one will be left looking for ways to have fun.” ■<br />

“Yahoo! Happy Birthday Pasadena” runs from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday at the Pasadena Museum of History,<br />

470 W. Walnut St., Pasadena. Admission is free. Call (626) 577-1660 or visit pasadenahistory.org.<br />

( BEAUTY & BRAWN )<br />

AS STRONG AS THEY ARE MAJESTIC, CLYDESDALES HAVE PLAYED A PROUD ROLE IN PASADENA HISTORY<br />

BY SHEILA MENDES COLEMAN<br />

It’s an awesome love-at-first-sight moment; that first glimpse of those powerful<br />

hooves, the beefy flanks that support them prancing in rhythm with each<br />

other. Their gallop is steady and sure, and every movement seems to exude<br />

purpose and regality.<br />

They are the mighty Clydesdale horses, and they have achieved rock star<br />

status in the equine world and beyond. That’s not simply because they are beautiful<br />

and magnificent to behold, or because they’ve appeared in more than 60 Rose<br />

Parades since 1954, but because their strength and history of service to man is<br />

legendary.<br />

Lampits Mare<br />

The Clydesdale horse began its storied history in Lanarkshire, Scotland in<br />

an area through which the Clyde River flows, known then as Clydesdale. Flemish<br />

stallions imported to the region were bred with local mares, resulting in a<br />

genetically superior horse. The farmers of Lanarkshire recognized at the time<br />

the horse’s might and versatility in helping them work the land and utilized the<br />

horses in agriculture, for hauling coal, and other heavy-hauling duties. In 1806, a<br />

filly later referred to as “Lampits Mare,” so named for the owner’s farm, was born<br />

and began a lineage of pedigreed Clydesdales that traced back to a group of black<br />

stallions originally imported from England. It is Lampits Mare that is listed in<br />

the ancestry of virtually every Clydesdale alive today. Once a successful breeding<br />

program was established in the late 19th century and early 20th century, the<br />

horses were soon exported to America, Northern England, New Zealand and<br />

Australia and became such a force in the latter country it was often referred to as<br />

“the breed that built Australia,” according to the Clydesdale Horse Society.<br />

Considered invaluable to pre-industrial farmers, Clydesdales were known for<br />

their sturdy build, patience, docile temperament and ability to perform arduous<br />

hauling tasks on the farm. These traits have continued in its lineage, making<br />

them as strong as they are beautiful. The hardy draft horses are even-tempered<br />

and easily trainable, often being called “gentle giants.”<br />

In addition to their easily recognizable gait and handsome profile, the Clydesdale<br />

is also well-known for the substantial “feather” it sports — the long hairs<br />

of the lower leg that cover the hooves and, according to the Anheuser Busch<br />

website, are “capable of pulling a 1-ton load at 5 MPH.”<br />

In 1905, in an effort to escape the chilly climes of their St. Louis and New<br />

York homes, Adolphus Busch purchased a stately home in Pasadena near Arroyo<br />

Seco Canyon. The home, known as “Ivy Wall,” was designed by architect Frederick<br />

Roehrig and located on South Orange Grove Avenue. The Busch family’s<br />

dream to develop the arroyo behind their property into scenic walking gardens<br />

and trails for the public soon came to fruition, and by 1909 it had become an<br />

immensely popular tourist attraction to the area and included “Triangle Trolley<br />

Trips” from the gardens to Santa Monica and oil fields in Los Angeles. After<br />

Adolphus’ death in 1913, his widow Lilly, daughter of partner Eberhard Anheuser,<br />

continued the tradition of public access to the gardens until her death in 1928,<br />

when they were closed for some time.<br />

In August 1933, August A. Busch Jr. and Adolphus Busch III gifted their father,<br />

German immigrant August Anheuser Busch Sr. with a six-horse Clydesdale hitch<br />

carrying the first case of post-Prohibition beer to celebrate the end of America’s<br />

dry period. Legend has it the elder Busch was so moved by the gesture he was<br />

brought to tears, hence the term “crying in your beer.”<br />

Busch Sr. recognized the enormous marketing and public relations potential<br />

of these gorgeous beasts of burden, and it was then that he devised a plan to send<br />

them across the country as goodwill ambassadors for the Budweiser brand, and<br />

to mark the end of the country’s ban on alcohol from 1920 to 1933.<br />

In the 1950s the spotted Dalmatian became the official mascot for the Clydesdale.<br />

Over a half-century later, these charming canine companions continue their<br />

partnership with the Clydesdales and you can find a Dalmatian seated next to<br />

the driver on each hitch. Currently, three teams of Clydesdales travel the United<br />

States. These teams, also known as “hitches” are the Western Hitch, based in<br />

Colorado, the Eastern Hitch, located in New Hampshire, with the remaining<br />

hitch stationed at the brand’s birthplace in St. Louis, Missouri. Ten horses travel<br />

on each team, with eight harnessed for performances and two used as alternates.<br />

Transporting each hitch requires three 50-foot semi-trucks, two for the horses,<br />

and the last one for the emblematic red, white and gold beer wagon, a modified<br />

Studebaker originally manufactured in the 1900s.<br />

The Budweiser Clydesdales participated in the Rose Parade, pulling the City<br />

of St. Louis float, from 1954 until 2011, and reappeared again in 2014, this time<br />

pulling the emblematic Budweiser beer wagon. They now pull the Wells Fargo<br />

Stagecoach. Today, the mighty Clydesdale continues to delight, and much of<br />

Pasadena’s history along Orange Grove is owed to the Busch family and their<br />

legacy of public works. Indeed, a significant portion of what we now consider Old<br />

Pasadena is built on the remnants of the horse farms and acreage that surrounded<br />

their beloved “Ivy Wall.”<br />

Jeannette Collier, committee services manager for the Tournament of Roses,<br />

says of them succinctly, “They are a crowd favorite. Their presence is majestic.” ■<br />

( BIRDS OF A<br />

DIFFERENT FEATHER )<br />

THERE ONCE WAS A TIME WHEN TOURISTS COULD ACTUALLY RIDE OSTRICHES IN SOUTH PASADENA<br />

BY JANA J. MONJI<br />

Long before the ostentation of Arcadia’s noisy peacocks gained<br />

infamy and the pandemonium of parrots squawked their way<br />

through Pasadena and the San Gabriel Valley, there was a bird<br />

of another feather that had tourists flocking to South Pasadena:<br />

ostriches. The ungainly, flightless birds were once like the goose<br />

that laid golden eggs, but it was feathers that made them valuable.<br />

The enterprising Edwin Cawston opened the farm in 1886 near<br />

Norwalk, by importing 50 ostriches from South Africa. The birds<br />

made their way by boat to Texas and then came to the Los Angeles<br />

area by train. Only 18 survived. Yet, eventually the farm’s feathered<br />

friends numbered over 100 and the farm moved to South Pasadena<br />

in 1895. The whole enterprise might seem like madness today, but<br />

during the late 19th century wings, breasts and whole birds (small<br />

ones) were popular flourishes to hats. Ostrich feather plumes were<br />

in such high demand that ostrich farms were lucrative businesses<br />

in South Africa.<br />

According to KCET, a single bird could produce $250 in feathers<br />

in one year. English naturalist Charles Sketchley opened Southern<br />

California’s first farm in 1883 in Los Angeles but closed in 1889.<br />

Cawston, on the other hand, was so successful that he used his<br />

South Pasadena location, which was conveniently located along the<br />

Pacific Electric interurban railway, for tourism. At the Pasadena<br />

farm, tourists could pay to ride in carriages drawn by an ostrich<br />

or the braver ones could actually ride one bareback. The gift shop<br />

sold feather boas and other ostrich feather souvenirs. Cawston had<br />

another location in Perris for breeding.<br />

The market for ostrich plumes plummeted in the 1910s, but<br />

the tourist trade kept Cawston’s going until 1934. This type of<br />

amusement farm was doomed anyway because in 1954 Disneyland<br />

opened in Anaheim. Orange County — once the ostrich capital of<br />

the nation during the ostrich feather heyday, according to the OC<br />

Weekly — was the site of an ostrich farm revival, according to a<br />

1994 LA Times article about an ostrich farmer who thought they<br />

were the protein of the future, but that farm has vanished.<br />

One used to be able to get an ostrich burger at Jake’s<br />

of Pasadena in Old Pas, but Jake’s closed in 2015. Fuddruckers<br />

also used to offer an ostrich burger, but the<br />

Pasadena location closed, too, although you might<br />

be able to get ostrich at some Fuddruckers (Fuddruckers<br />

Exotic Burgers) but that depends upon<br />

the location. If you gander a taste of the feathered<br />

flightless fowl that formerly made its home in<br />

South Pasadena, you can try Harmony Farms<br />

(harmonyfarmsca.com) in La Crescenta (2824<br />

Foothill Blvd., 818/248-3068). The closest farm<br />

with herds of these birds is OstrichlandUSA<br />

(ostrichlandusa.com), near Solvang. No ostrich<br />

rides (bareback or otherwise) are available, but<br />

you can get some ostrich jerky, emu<br />

eggs and feather dusters,<br />

You can still visit the<br />

location of the South<br />

Pasadena farm, but while<br />

the outside has mostly<br />

been preserved, the animals<br />

inside have changed<br />

to humans. The site of the<br />

historic Cawston Ostrich<br />

Farm (1010 Sycamore Ave.)<br />

was redeveloped in 2006 into 53<br />

live/work loft condos, fittingly<br />

named Ostrich Farm Lofts. The<br />

ostriches may be gone, but one<br />

can still celebrate Pasadena and<br />

its unique history by dressing up in<br />

one’s finery and flapping one’s wings<br />

while dancing like no one’s looking.<br />

Happy Birthday, Pasadena. ■<br />

( RIDING HIGH )<br />

HORSES LEND A SENSE OF STYLE AND ADVENTURE TO THE ANNUAL ROSE PARADE<br />

BY KEVIN UHRICH<br />

On New Year’s Day 1994, instead of riding in a car or a<br />

carriage, William “Capt. Kirk” Shatner, an avid equestrian,<br />

boldly went where few Rose Parade grand marshals had<br />

ever gone before.<br />

Shatner rode one of his own horses down Colorado Boulevard,<br />

a chestnut-colored gelding once named “I Prefer Roses,” bred<br />

on a ranch the star owned in Kentucky. Along the way, the then<br />

62-year-old actor doffed his cowboy-style hat and waved to the<br />

throngs of spectators and fans lining both sides of the 5.5-milelong<br />

parade route.<br />

Shatner must have felt right at home on horseback leading the<br />

annual parade, which every year since its inception has featured<br />

either horses pulling floats or renowned equestrian riders. In the<br />

modern era, some of those teams have included, among other<br />

participants, the New Buffalo Soldiers, the US Marine Corps, and<br />

the Wells Fargo Stagecoach and Budweiser beer wagon, the latter<br />

two pulled by magnificent Clydesdales.<br />

In fact, a few days prior to each year’s parade, Wells Fargo<br />

Bank presents Equestfest at the LA Equestrian Center on Riverside<br />

Drive in Burbank, near Griffith Park, illustrating just how<br />

important horses remain to “America’s New Year’s Day Celebration,”<br />

as the Tournament of Roses has come to call the floral<br />

spectacular.<br />

Soon after 1890, the year the parade started, Tournament officials<br />

initiated the Never on Sunday rule, thinking not so much<br />

about observing some blue law, or ordinance that prohibits such<br />

things as the sale of alcohol and working, but the danger posed<br />

by horses being spooked as folks left services from the many<br />

churches that line protions of the boulevard.<br />

In 1901, motorized floats were introduced and would become<br />

an integral part of each parade since then. But in those days, the<br />

noisy, smoky contraptions were placed in the rear of the parade,<br />

again in order to keep them from scaring<br />

the horses.<br />

By 1920, horses were still a big part of<br />

the pageant, only by this time floats operating<br />

on gasoline- or electricity-powered motors<br />

had taken over the duties of propelling<br />

the flower-bedecked floats along the parade<br />

route, according to the Tournament. And over<br />

the years, the parade’s equestrian entries have<br />

become more professional and more stylized.<br />

Some of the units that have participated<br />

in Equestfest, according to the Tournament,<br />

include the Clydesdales of the First Cavalry Division<br />

from Fort Hood, Texas, USC mascot Traveler,<br />

the Sons and Daughters of the Reel West, and<br />

the California State Fire Fighters Association.<br />

Former Rose Parade announcer Bob Eubanks, a rodeo<br />

cowboy at one point in his long show business career, and<br />

Shawn Parr have served as announcers of Equestfest over<br />

the years. Montie Montana, a Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame<br />

member and a rodeo trick rider and trick roper, was a perennial<br />

entry in the annual parade. The actor and stuntman<br />

rode in 60 parades until his death in May 1998.<br />

The lineup for 2020 is not yet complete, but over<br />

the past decade riding teams have ranged in size<br />

from 23 in 2010 to as few as 16 in 2014, according<br />

to the Tournament. Equestrian teams marching in<br />

last year’s parade numbered 18 and, in alphabetical order,<br />

included:<br />

• 1st Cavalry Division, Horse Cavalry Detachment<br />

The theme of the 1994 parade, A Fantastic Adventure, seemed a fitting<br />

match for Shatner, and he made the most of it.<br />

“It will definitely be an adventure,” Shatner told United Press International<br />

(UPI).<br />

Prior to the 1994 parade, he had changed the original name of the horse<br />

he was riding on to “I Prefer Montana,” according to the Los Angeles<br />

Times.<br />

“I’m truly honored. My family and friends will share in the excitement.<br />

I’ll be seeing the (Rose Bowl football) game from the 50-yard line. It’s<br />

almost too good to be true,” said the actor.<br />

The truth was, this was not Shatner’s first rodeo, er, Rose Parade. In<br />

1969, he rode in the parade on a non-“Star Trek” float, according to the<br />

Times and YouTube, and in 2004 he appeared in a documentary about the<br />

parade with former parade announcer Stephanie Edwards.<br />

In the authoritative voice that he used as Capt. Kirk on TV in the 1960s,<br />

and in six “Star Trek” films from 1979 to 1991, Shatner told UPI in October<br />

1993, “The fantastic adventure will be shared by the 1 million people who<br />

come out to watch the parade as well as the half a billion who will see it<br />

on TV.” But, he said, “Most of all, the fantastic adventure will be mine.” ■<br />

( RACING TOWARD<br />

TOMORROW )<br />

IN SPITE OF ITS RECENT TROUBLES, HISTORY-DRENCHED SANTA ANITA PARK<br />

CONTINUES TO EVOLVE AS A CULTURAL HUB<br />

BY CELENE VARGAS<br />

Perhaps no other cultural institution in Southern California better<br />

exemplifies our fascination with and love of horses than Santa Anita<br />

Park. Yes, it’s having many problems now, with 30 horses since<br />

December being injured while running on the track and later<br />

euthanized. But since opening in 1934, Santa Anita has<br />

been a national hub of competitive horse racing<br />

action.<br />

While the original racetrack was<br />

opened in 1907 by Elias J. “Lucky” Baldwin<br />

in what is now known as Arcadia Park, the<br />

Santa Anita we know today dates back to late<br />

1934 when San Francisco dentist Charles H.<br />

Strub and movie mogul Hal Roach re-opened<br />

the track in its current location, just a few<br />

blocks away from the old one, after the legalization<br />

of pari-mutuel gambling the prior year.<br />

Santa Anita’s rich history was foretold when<br />

its 1930s inception found success despite the Great<br />

Depression. Just months after opening, the first<br />

Santa Anita Handicap had a purse of $100,000, a previously<br />

unheard of amount that equals about $1.8 million<br />

today. Referred to as the “Hundred-Grander,” the Santa<br />

Anita Handicap quickly became one of the top races in<br />

the nation.<br />

Santa Anita Park soon became a part of Hollywood<br />

movie history when the 1937 classic “A Day at the Races”<br />

featured the Marx Bros. wreaking havoc at the park. Santa<br />

Anita went on to be used in a variety of<br />

other films, such as “Public Enemies,” the<br />

movie starring Johnny Depp as Depression-era<br />

American gangster John<br />

Dillinger, and, of course the movie<br />

“Seabiscuit,” starring Tobey Maguire.<br />

By 1940, legendary racehorse<br />

Seabiscuit had made a name for itself<br />

and cemented itself as part of<br />

Santa Anita’s history. It won that<br />

year’s handicap after two previous<br />

attempts and a 1939 injury<br />

that many thought would be the end of the<br />

horse’s career. In 1941, a life-size statue of the horse<br />

was installed in the park and still stands there today.<br />

Of course, all history has a dark side and the racetrack is no exception.<br />

As also noted in a recent PW story about the park, in 1942 Santa Anita<br />

was used to process up to 22,000 Japanese-Americans and housed them in converted<br />

horse stalls and in barracks before sending them to internment camps.<br />

Fast-forwarding to 1969, the park saw another historical moment made even<br />

more pivotal considering the cultural climate when Tuesdee Testa became the<br />

first female jockey to win at a major American racetrack after winning at Santa<br />

Anita on March 1.<br />

The park continued to flex its prestige when it not only hosted the equestrian<br />

events for the 1984 Olympic Summer Games but also the Breeders’ Cup<br />

World Championships in 1986. The latter is an international event that features<br />

the world’s greatest horses,<br />

jockeys and trainers with a<br />

winning prize of $1 million.<br />

It wouldn’t be the last time<br />

the park would host this<br />

event.<br />

The introduction of<br />

the Tokyo City Cup at<br />

Santa Anita in 2005,<br />

a celebration of its<br />

sister track in Japan,<br />

expanded the park’s<br />

reach. In turn,<br />

every summer Ohi Racecourse<br />

holds “Santa Anita Week”<br />

and features the ”Santa Anita Trophy,” a<br />

one mile G3 race.<br />

Even though the park is still a major spot for horse-racing,<br />

times have changed and so have the avenues of entertainment.<br />

No longer do families pack a lunch to watch a race in droves.<br />

While Santa Anita Park struggles to resolve and overcome its horses’ injuries<br />

and fatalities, with both members of the public and political figures calling<br />

for the suspension of races, at the very least until a thorough investigation<br />

is done, the racetrack will remain as a major part of the community’s<br />

identity through its history alone.<br />

What remains to be seen, aside from how the park will implement or<br />

respond to potential new safety measures, is how the park will evolve<br />

to help shape the future of the community. Some recent events have included<br />

hosting pop-up food stalls, which garnered new community interest. Maybe<br />

this can be a new way people can continue to picnic at the races. ■<br />

GREEN EARTH VEGAN CUISINE<br />

BOASTS A MENU ALL CAN ENJOY<br />

BY EVELYN GARCIA<br />

PHOTOS BY DANNY LIAO<br />

In recent weeks I have been attempting to change my diet for health<br />

reasons, to eat more gluten-free, dairy-free food (cue the eye rolls),<br />

although I’m not very strict and this job allows me what I would consider<br />

“cheat days,” making it all the more enjoyable. Ironically, I wound up on<br />

another vegan adventure this week, which was not entirely intentional.<br />

After some time revisiting the website of Green Earth Vegan Cuisine in Old<br />

Pasadena, and again salivating over photos they’ve posted, I decided it was<br />

finally time to try it.<br />

When I walked in the first thing I noticed on the back wall in the center<br />

of the room were a couple of rows containing books on vegan dieting.<br />

Cookbooks, clinical studies and firsthand accounts of people who converted<br />

to a vegan diet, all on display. Although I wasn’t sure if diners were free to<br />

grab one, I began to understand Green Earth Vegan Cuisine is not like the<br />

hipster, “cool” overpriced vegan spots that strive for Instagram likes and<br />

popularity. In fact, Green Earth doesn’t seem to have a large presence on<br />

social media at all, but it is still one of the better-known restaurants in the<br />

area, and has a huge following of all kinds of dieters.<br />

There were only two other parties in the restaurant, so my friend and<br />

I were seated right away. Their menu is so extensive, with a large array<br />

of choices, that I genuinely had a hard time deciding on appetizers. My<br />

ZELO GOURMET PIZZAS<br />

328 E. Foothill Blvd.Arcadia<br />

626-358-8298 myzelopizza.info $$<br />

It’s the cornmeal crust that makes this pizzeria stand<br />

out from the rest. This locally owned establishment’s<br />

signature dish is the fresh, corn, balsamic-marinated,<br />

oven-roasted red onion pie. Zelo Pizzeria has expanded<br />

the dining room to better serve you, so come<br />

in and give Zelo Pizzeria a try.<br />

friend, on the other hand, is one of the most<br />

carnivorous people I know, so he was just along<br />

for the experience and had me lead the way. We<br />

went with the quinoa sushi ($9.50), rolls made with<br />

quinoa, carrots, cucumber, avocado and portabella<br />

mushroom wrapped in sushi nori. Both are glutenfree<br />

and soy-free, and were delicious. I love sushi,<br />

and while it is obviously not like the real thing it’s an<br />

amazing alternative for anyone missing it or who just<br />

wants to try a delicious quinoa roll.<br />

Our favorite starters were the golden crispy<br />

rolls ($6), which were the equivalent to a veggie<br />

egg roll, minus the egg. They’re served with lettuce,<br />

cucumber, mint and Vietnamese vinaigrette.<br />

Throughout the entirety of the meal our waiter was<br />

extremely helpful in answering questions we had,<br />

and as a lifelong vegetarian then later vegan himself,<br />

was very knowledgeable. When he brought over the<br />

crispy rolls he asked if we knew how to eat them<br />

Vietnamese style, and then showed us the proper<br />

way: Take a roll and roll it in a piece of lettuce along<br />

with a slice of cucumber and mint leaf, then dip it all<br />

into the vinaigrette. If I was served this blindfolded,<br />

I would have never guessed it was egg-less or filled<br />

with vegetables only, thanks to the overabundance<br />

of flavor packed into such a small roll.<br />

To drink, I ordered lemonade made from freshly<br />

squeezed lemons ($4.50). Our waiter asked if it was<br />

too sour, but it was perfect, and my friend ordered<br />

a Thai iced tea with soy milk ($4). I had difficulty<br />

deciding on our main entree as well, because they<br />

have about every type of pastas (lasagna included),<br />

rice plates, noodles, ramen, pho, won tons, hot<br />

and cold salads, burgers and sandwiches, all<br />

with soy protein or tofu options. The possibilities<br />

were endless, yet somehow all I was craving were<br />

noodles. I asked about the pad Thai ($10) and he said<br />

that although it’s not listed on the menu, they are<br />

actually spicy, and I was sold. A few bites in I could<br />

definitely taste the kick, but a few more and I found<br />

myself alternating between water and my lemonade<br />

to find some relief for my tongue, which was on fire.<br />

Still, I loved it. It is made with stir fry rice noodles<br />

(which are gluten-free), tofu, mushrooms, carrots,<br />

bean sprouts and broccoli, garlic, all flavored with<br />

tamarind and topped with toasted peanuts.<br />

It was hard to imagine that my friend’s gourmet<br />

burrito ($11) would be as good as my plate of spicy<br />

goodness, but it was. The burrito was made with<br />

textured vegetable protein seasoned to taste like<br />

beef, brown rice, lettuce, guacamole and pico de<br />

gallo, wrapped beautifully in a whole wheat tortilla<br />

served with a choice of fries or side salad. I had a few<br />

bites and couldn’t believe it. Surprise is a common<br />

reaction each time I venture into the world of vegan<br />

eats, and he was right there with me. Put simply, it<br />

tasted like it could be served at Taco Bell as “real”<br />

beef, only with much, much higher quality and far<br />

better ingredients, of course. I could go back just<br />

for the crispy rolls and the burrito and be one happy<br />

camper.<br />

One thing is clear: Green Earth Vegan Cuisine<br />

does not skimp on the flavor. Every dish on their<br />

menu is made with a list of ingredients that<br />

harmoniously blend together in a way I know both<br />

tastes great and feels great.<br />

Green Earth has a hefty list of desserts they make<br />

in house, but we wanted a few minutes to walk off<br />

our dinner, so we made our way across the street<br />

to Paradis Ice Cream. It’s a small shop with several<br />

locations across Southern California, but another I<br />

had yet to enjoy prior to that day. Upon entering, a<br />

staircase leads to an open seating area upstairs and<br />

immediately to the left is the glass casing filled with<br />

unique flavors. After taste testing a few, including<br />

the Oreo, which is typically my favorite, I decided<br />

to keep with the theme and got the cookie crumble<br />

vegan flavor in the single scoop ($4), which was<br />

delicious, and my friend got two scoops ($5.50) of<br />

the banana sundae and peanut butter bar.<br />

Between an amazing dinner and tasty dessert<br />

that we enjoyed as we walked up and down Colorado<br />

Blvd., I was reminded yet again of how lucky we are<br />

to live in a city with some of the most well-known,<br />

sought after and hidden treasures in which to dine<br />

and share a special evening with loved ones.<br />

TWIN<br />

OPPOSITES<br />

GENTLE PARENTAL CUES SHOULD<br />

HELP SLOW DOWN ONE TODDLER<br />

AND DISINHIBIT ANOTHER<br />

Dear Patti,<br />

My wife and I have adorable twin daughters, Poppy and Belle, who<br />

recently turned 2. They’re at an age where they’re now becoming more<br />

mobile, in control of their own bodies and able to make more choices for<br />

themselves. Poppy is a totally free and fearless spirit and toddles off as fast<br />

and as far as she can without even a backward glance at us; if not constantly<br />

watched, the situation can quickly become dangerous. Poppy loves to explore<br />

without regard for any boundaries. Accordingly, my wife and I have to chase<br />

her all the time or she’ll run clear across a large park or department store.<br />

Belle, on the other hand, hides behind my wife’s skirt and won’t leave her<br />

for a second. She’s comfortable walking around as long as one or the other of<br />

us is walking right next to her. She will only explore if she can be reassured<br />

that her mom or I will stay close by.<br />

So here we have one daughter who is extremely timid and another who is<br />

a complete risk-taker. We’re not sure if their respective behaviors are due to<br />

different innate personality traits, our own approaches to parenting, or if<br />

the girls are becoming polarized due to their relationship with each other. We<br />

see other children our daughters’ age and most of their behaviors appear to<br />

be somewhere in the middle between our two. We would like to teach Poppy<br />

boundaries and assist Belle in becoming more secure. My wife and I both<br />

value your opinion and want to know what you think.<br />

— Liam<br />

Dear Liam,<br />

At approximately 18 months old, toddlers begin to gain a heightened awareness<br />

that they’re separate individuals and want to start exploring their environment.<br />

This can be an exciting time for parents as they watch their children’s curiosity<br />

develop. If a parent repeatedly shows fear whenever an adventuresome streak<br />

emerges, however, the toddler might get the message that the world isn’t safe<br />

and can then become timid and afraid. Therefore, Poppy may need repeated and<br />

gentle boundary-setting that is without punishment or which induces no fear. It<br />

should be kept in mind that if a child turns for reassurance during these explorations<br />

and discovers the parent has left the room or isn’t paying attention, she or he<br />

may suddenly feel abandoned and start to exhibit “clingy” behaviors. Belle might<br />

have somehow learned insecurity about being on her own and, thus, needs gentle<br />

encouragement without giving her the message that her shyness is somehow bad<br />

or wrong.<br />

While you and your wife should continue to take the girls out for excursions together,<br />

it might also be a good idea to take them out separately in order to support<br />

their individual needs.<br />

You don’t want Belle to believe the world is a scary place, and although your<br />

concerns about her becoming more sociable and secure are valid, the problem<br />

may be nothing more than the fact that she’s still very young and experiencing<br />

different surroundings is something new to her. If you start pushing her too hard<br />

and insist that she go and play, it may escalate her tentativeness. Allow her to get<br />

comfortable and watch for Belle’s lead. Does she want to pet the kitty one foot<br />

away or go and play with another toddler nearby? Be quick to respond with encouragement.<br />

The words and body language you and your wife use should be free<br />

of tension or threat and convey to Belle that it’s her own choice to stay close or go<br />

play. If she’s still inhibited, arrange situations where there are toys or interesting<br />

situations available for her to explore a little farther away in a safe area. Always<br />

encourage very gently, never press, and give her all the time she needs. Let her<br />

take the lead and be quick to follow.<br />

As for Poppy, her adventuresome personality is wonderful but she may need<br />

your singular concentration to teach her to listen to your guidelines in order for<br />

her to be safe. She may be spunky, but nonetheless she’s still barely much more<br />

than a baby. Do your best to get her under control in a calm and kindly manner. n<br />

‘DANGEROUS AND INSANE’<br />

City to vigorously enforce fireworks ban during holiday<br />

City officials are reminding local residents that they<br />

plan to hold people responsible for possessing, selling<br />

and discharging fireworks, including land owners who<br />

allow fireworks to be set off on their property.<br />

The city maintains a zero-tolerance enforcement<br />

policy for fireworks, and Pasadena police officers<br />

and firefighters are teaming up for special fireworks<br />

enforcement patrols before, during and after the Fourth<br />

of July holiday. Violators are subject to arrest, having<br />

their vehicles impounded, a $50,000 fine and serving up to one year in jail.<br />

National Fire Protection Association statistics reveal that 90 percent of all<br />

fireworks-related injuries are caused by so-called “safe and sane” fireworks, which are<br />

also illegal in Pasadena.<br />

“Safe and sane fireworks is a marketing term,” said city Public Information Office<br />

Lisa Derderian. “They’re dangerous and insane and can cause injuries. Don’t risk jail<br />

time, expensive fines, having your car impounded or other serious penalties by taking<br />

risks. Leave the fireworks to the professionals.”<br />

Pasadena police and fire personnel will staff checkpoints around the Rose Bowl<br />

to search for and seize any fireworks. Parking enforcement officers will ensure that<br />

vehicles illegally parked in Pasadena’s hillside areas on July 4 are impounded.<br />

PINK POLICE<br />

LA County Police Chiefs’ Association kicks off Pink<br />

Patch Project for breast cancer awareness<br />

The Los Angeles County Police Chiefs’ Association<br />

(LACPCA) and public safety agencies across the nation<br />

have kicked off their 2019 Pink Patch Project. Pasadena<br />

Police Chief John Perez emceed the opening press<br />

conference Tuesday.<br />

The Pink Patch Project is aims to increase public<br />

awareness about breast cancer and to raise funds for<br />

the fight against the disease. It is a collaborative effort<br />

between the LACPCA and over 390 public safety agencies throughout the United States,<br />

with the program centering on vibrant pink versions of the agency’s uniform patches.<br />

Employees from the participating agencies will be wearing the pink patches on their<br />

uniforms during Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October. As part of this program,<br />

participating agencies are selling their commemorative pink patches to the community,<br />

along with T-shirts, challenge coins and other commemorative items.<br />

South Pas Library Director Steve Fjeldsted retires<br />

with ‘End of the Beginning’ comedy night<br />

The South Pasadena Public Library and the<br />

Friends of the South Pasadena Public Library will<br />

present the “End of the Beginning” standup comedy<br />

show in the Community Room on Thursday, June<br />

27, at 7 p.m. The “clean yet clever,” family-friendly<br />

event will transform the stately historic venue into<br />

a comedy club filled with laughter. Doors for the allages<br />

event will open at 6:30 p.m.<br />

The show will conclude longtime Library<br />

Director Steve Fjeldsted’s last day on the job. A native of La Crescenta, Fjeldsted has<br />

been in charge of the library for the past 13 years. During his tenure, he turned its<br />

community room into a regular hotbed of artistic activity including music concerts, film<br />

screenings with artist Q&A sessions and dramatic performances.<br />

“South Pasadena is a highly educated, arts and cultural oriented community<br />

with so much talent around here and such an audience to pull from,” says Fjeldsted.<br />

“We’re surrounded by these bigger cities and to get attention from people can cost<br />

a lot of money and effort, but a quick way to keep the library on people’s minds<br />

and attract people there is to do events and I like leaving on that with smiles and<br />

laughter.”<br />

The Library Community Room is located at 1115 El Centro St. Refreshments will be<br />

served and no tickets or reservations are necessary. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and seats<br />

are limited. n<br />

BETWEEN DARK AND LIGHT<br />

ROBERTO AGUIRRE-SACASA, THE MAN WHO CREATED ‘THE CHILLING ADVENTURES OF<br />

SABRINA’ AND RETOOLED ARCHIE COMICS, BRINGS ‘GOOD BOYS’ TO PASADENA PLAYHOUSE<br />

BY CARL KOZLOWSKI<br />

As the creator of the hit CW network series “Riverdale” and the Netflix<br />

series “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina,” Roberto Aguirre-<br />

Sacasa has reinvented the world of the long-running Archie comics<br />

to create dazzlingly original shows that have ascended to be two of the<br />

top five most popular programs on the planet right now. As a result,<br />

he recently scored an $80 million production deal to create even more<br />

series.<br />

Yet prior to his current TV career and status overseeing Archie<br />

Comics’ TV and movie projects, Aguirre-Sacasa was an acclaimed playwright<br />

as well. In 2003, he wrote a play called “Good Boys and True,”<br />

about Brandon Hardy, a golden boy senior at St. Joseph’s Prep who is<br />

accused of being in a kinky sex tape. The accusation could shatter everything<br />

he’s worked for and his family reputation, and Brandon swears<br />

he’s not the boy in it — and the play follows him and his mother as they<br />

pull out all the stops to clear his name, which leads to the unearthing of<br />

shocking secrets that affect the entire school and their town.<br />

Aguirre-Sacasa decided to use his newfound TV success to revive<br />

the passion project play, and is mounting it as “Good Boys” at the Pasadena<br />

Playhouse from Wednesday through July 21.<br />

Speaking recently with the Pasadena Weekly, he shared the surprising<br />

inspiration for the play, how it’s more relevant than ever now in the<br />

#Metoo era and addressed the responsibility that comes with creating<br />

shows for impressionable young minds.<br />

Pasadena Weekly: What was the genesis of the play and how did<br />

you decide to revive it now?<br />

Aguirre-Sacasa: I wrote the first draft 15 years ago. It’s a play that’s<br />

set in a prep school, with its golden boy star athlete with great grades<br />

who’s president of his class and finds himself accused of a scandal. A<br />

videotape has been found of someone who looks like him having sex<br />

with a girl who goes to a public school, and the play’s sort of a mystery:<br />

Did this boy do it or not? Is he the guy on the tape? And the further mystery<br />

— if it was him, why was it him? It’s sort of about the boy and his<br />

mother having a huge reckoning about responsibility, morality and what<br />

constitutes acceptable and not acceptable behavior. It’s a prep school<br />

play like “Dead Poet’s Society” or “School Ties,” and a thriller about a<br />

mother trying to defend her son. I wrote it 15 years ago, and it has had<br />

productions, but it’s very rare for everything to come together and work<br />

perfectly. I started talking to [Playhouse artistic director] Danny Feldman<br />

after the Kavanaugh hearings, and said I want to do a little more<br />

work on it, but he loved it and that led it to the<br />

Pasadena Playhouse.<br />

Did this play come to you out of some sort<br />

of personal experience?<br />

I went to an all-boys prep school just outside<br />

of DC where I grew up, but I never experienced<br />

anything like what is in the play. What<br />

started me writing about this was the Duke<br />

lacrosse scandal, where the team had a party<br />

where things got extremely questionable and<br />

accusations were flying. I want to say it was<br />

just about that, but these kinds of scandals are<br />

happening with alarming frequency. I wanted<br />

to write about my high school experience and<br />

sort of combined the two. On one hand it’s<br />

very personal about my time there, and on the<br />

other it’s about the phenomenon of young men<br />

behaving poorly in the rarefied atmosphere of<br />

prep school, which has always been a hothouse<br />

of testosterone, privilege and insecurity. So it’s<br />

both personal and in response to something<br />

that happens all too often. The Duke players,<br />

as far as I know, were totally exonerated, but<br />

the culture that enables it was put on trial, and<br />

that’s in the play too.<br />

How were the current rewrites impacted<br />

by #METoo?<br />

The play is a period piece, set in 1989. Even<br />

the language we talk about — me too, toxic<br />

masculinity, check your privilege — these<br />

phrases didn’t exist back then. They were<br />

things you didn’t talk about or question and<br />

it’s unchecked. In that way it’s a period piece,<br />

very much an old boys’ locker room mentality,<br />

and not many people are challenging it. The<br />

main character, the mother, is challenging it<br />

but she’s very much a lone wolf on this. It’s not<br />

the revolution it is now. In the play she’s on her<br />

own, navigating these uncharted waters. She’s<br />

never been inside the gymnasium, locker room,<br />

coach’s office. In the play her husband always<br />

handled this, and he’s now out of town on a trip<br />

so she’s forced to get involved. Part of the challenge<br />

is asking is it possible to indict an entire<br />

system when it should be done on a case by<br />

case basis? The mother tries to blame the culture,<br />

saying, ‘My son wouldn’t have done this if<br />

not for the culture.’ The coach says, ‘Don’t kid<br />

yourself, there are a lot of kids in this culture<br />

who haven’t done anything remotely like what<br />

your son has been accused of doing.’ I agree<br />

there’s nothing more pressing and demanding<br />

to do than to look at the cases individually and<br />

judge as individuals.<br />

“Riverdale” sparked some controversy<br />

by having occasionally racy sexual scenes<br />

between its teenage characters, and “Sabrina”<br />

was accused by some for depicting a<br />

teenage witch deciding whether to follow her<br />

family’s bloodline into working with Satan.<br />

Yet “Riverdale” is extremely anti-drug and<br />

has basically good kids fighting evil, while<br />

“Sabrina,” in its final episode thus far, shows<br />

her unequivocally acting against Satan and<br />

picking good over evil as well. What do you<br />

have to say to your critics?<br />

It’s funny, I was raised Catholic, and I love<br />

scary movies like “The Omen,” “Rosemary’s<br />

Baby” and “The Exorcist.” In many ways, “Sabrina”<br />

is much more wholesome and innocent<br />

than “Riverdale.” The kids feel like real teenagers,<br />

and I think the show needed that innocence<br />

and optimism to balance out the darker<br />

elements. If the teens were older and more<br />

sexually active like they are on “Riverdale,”<br />

you wouldn’t get the delicious contradiction of<br />

Sabrina, a young woman of 16 facing down the<br />

Dark Lord. It’s also about her family and always<br />

defending the underdog and her friends, so it’s<br />

hard to ignore that. You can find reason to be<br />

offended by anything, but when you really look<br />

at Sabrina it’s so clear that this isn’t reality, that<br />

she and her family love each other, and they<br />

fight for good even if they were raised to say<br />

‘Hail Satan.’ If you’re looking for a cause to be<br />

offended, you will find it. But that’s not what<br />

the show is about. It’s really about a kid finding<br />

their place in the world.<br />

To me the difference is the kids are in<br />

committed relationships in “Riverdale,” and<br />

hooking up is not a constant focus of the<br />

show. And you fight drugs with Archie. On<br />

“Euphoria,” there’s constant drugs, teen date<br />

rape, and a trans kid gets raped by a man.<br />

Its creator laughs, saying they’re making the<br />

most messed up show imaginable to freak out<br />

parents. Where do you draw the line or feel<br />

responsibility?<br />

I saw “Euphoria” when it premiered and I<br />

really, really enjoyed it and I thought going in<br />

it might be really nihilistic and I don’t want to<br />

see teenagers suffering. But I really enjoyed it,<br />

thought it well done and was captivated by it<br />

and the kids on the show. But “Riverdale” is so<br />

different from it. We’re so far from reality. It’s<br />

so heightened, we often get criticized because<br />

our kids are never in school — they’re running<br />

clubs, owning restaurants and solving murders.<br />

It’s escapism. I think every artist draws the<br />

line with what they want to explore, depict and<br />

show. We’ve kind of gone there, we had one<br />

episode where Cheryl Blossom was slipped<br />

a mickey and was going to be date raped but<br />

the Pussycats showed up and beat the tar out<br />

of them. You have to decide what you want to<br />

put out there and what you want to say, but I’ve<br />

always been more interested in escapism and<br />

genre, crime and pulp. n<br />

exhausted.” “I can’t stay<br />

focused.” “It feels like a<br />

“I’m<br />

sledgehammer’s pounding<br />

me in the ground every day.”<br />

I’ve heard and seen such comments<br />

in so many places, I’ve lost<br />

track of their frequency — every<br />

day, it feels like. No doubt you<br />

have heard and seen them too.<br />

New variations on those themes<br />

circulate with each fresh round<br />

of norm-rocking headlines, and<br />

the cumulative effect of constant<br />

chaos will not be ignored. This is<br />

not normal; this is not in the same<br />

area code as normalcy. This is not<br />

on the grid. This is not even sane.<br />

As a child in my grandparents’<br />

home, I’d listen to my granddad<br />

play piano and sing in his<br />

hearty, ringing bass tones, and<br />

that would dispel whatever was<br />

disquieting my little girl mind.<br />

As I grew older, I found solace in<br />

singing and jamming with friends.<br />

Music remains a steadying compass<br />

point in life, as it does for<br />

many of us. In times of trouble,<br />

there’s cathartic healing to be<br />

found in gathering with the clan<br />

to raise voices together, or just<br />

share songs and stories that reestablish<br />

our communal horizon<br />

line and understanding. Fearsome<br />

warlords throughout the<br />

centuries have recognized this,<br />

engaging troubadours, dancers,<br />

poets and playwrights to bond<br />

their community and keep their<br />

torments at bay.<br />

So a ticket to respite is<br />

promised by a night of old friends<br />

sharing songs and stories. This<br />

Saturday, that is precisely what<br />

Katy Moffatt, Mike Fleming, and<br />

Tom Corbett will be doing at Coffee<br />

Gallery Backstage. Granted,<br />

hearing Corbett cheerfully promise,<br />

“I’m gonna take you fishing,<br />

honey/ You’re gonna love it” over<br />

a chunky bluegrass mandolin riff<br />

is lightyears from medieval troubadours<br />

fawning over royals with<br />

ballads of courtly love, but times<br />

change, right? Hear, hear, and hallelujah<br />

for silly stuff too.<br />

All three artists are familiar<br />

to local audiences, having<br />

performed numerous acoustic<br />

concerts in Pasadena-area<br />

venues over the years. Moffatt<br />

achieved renown in folk and<br />

country circles beginning in the<br />

1970s, garnering acclaim for her<br />

full-throated, emotional vocal<br />

style and tasteful albums such<br />

as 1993’s Tom Russell-produced<br />

“The Greatest Show on Earth”<br />

(aka “The Evangeline Hotel”)<br />

and 1999’s Dave Alvin-produced<br />

“Loose Diamond.” Fleming is perhaps<br />

best known as one-third of<br />

entertaining bluegrass-cowboygypsy<br />

jazz trio New West, winning<br />

awards for his songwriting<br />

and high regard for his onstage<br />

warmth and smooth harmonies.<br />

Corbett’s a remarkable musician<br />

and generous spirit onstage and<br />

off, as comfortable accompanying<br />

guitar and mandolin students<br />

at the Topanga Banjo Fiddle<br />

Festival as he is fronting his own<br />

shows or backing the likes of<br />

John McEuen.<br />

Circle it on your calendar. I’ll<br />

MASTERY TO BIG MAMA’S RIB SHACK IN PASADENA SATURDAY.<br />

The LA-based Sardinas represents a newer generation of blues artists who have<br />

taken up the style and made it their own.<br />

Picking up the guitar at the age of 6, Sardinas studied the sounds of Motown, R&B,<br />

gospel and rootsy blues while absorbing licks from Delta blues masters including<br />

Robert Johnson and Skip James. He also took influences from the Chicago end of the<br />

blues spectrum, including Howlin’ Wolf, Otis Rush and Albert King.<br />

Sardinas has also incorporated rock sounds of the 1950 and ’60s, creating his own<br />

sound.<br />

He tours nationally and around the world, and has released several albums.<br />

reinterpreting folk, gospel and jazz traditionals with<br />

here Ranky Tanky (translation: “get funky with it”)<br />

also draw inspiration from West African ancestors<br />

enslaved along Carolina coastal plains and islands<br />

CATCH A GROUP THAT IS SERIOUSLY FUNNY AND SIMULTANEOUSLY A SERIOUS MUSICAL ACT WHEN PAST ACTION<br />

HEROES TAKES THE STAGE AT T. BOYLE’S TAVERN FRIDAY NIGHT.<br />

To the uninitiated, the band dresses in costumes reminiscent of TV action series heroes of the 1980s and ’90s, such as<br />

“MacGyver,” Michael Knight of “Night Rider,” “Magnum P.I” and various other icons.<br />

The show consists of hit music from the decades of Reagan and Clinton, and they totally rock in the process. Past<br />

Action Heroes’ musical renditions are spot-on, and the band’s musicianship is arena-worthy. This is serious music, performed<br />

with a wink and a smile, offering a humorous take on the era.<br />

They’ve performed shows at clubs all around the area, as well as Santa Anita Park, and they’re a popular call for events<br />

like weddings and parties. Their past client endorsements glow with praise.<br />

Check them out at pastactionheroes.com. — John Sollenberger<br />

‘DAMES AT SEA’ BRINGS NOSTALGIC SUMMER FUN TO SIERRA MADRE PLAYHOUSE<br />

The Sierra Madre Playhouse is beloved<br />

for producing enjoyable plays gilded<br />

in the charm of a small-town vibe. But<br />

it originated as a movie theater for the<br />

bucolic burg of roughly 11,000 citizens<br />

— a town so small that it still has only<br />

one stoplight — and this summer its<br />

programmers are weaving together<br />

both aspects of its rich cultural history<br />

by presenting the old-school musical<br />

“Dames at Sea” as well as a series of<br />

classic movies that inspired the style of<br />

“Dames” on Wednesday nights.<br />

“Dames” follows the story of Ruby,<br />

an actress who hits the stage as a chorus<br />

girl but might wind up a star, in a<br />

musical comedy that is also a hilarious<br />

homage to the glamorous and hopeful<br />

musicals of the 1930s. According to<br />

director Joshua Finkel, the combination<br />

is bringing a full slate of summer fun to<br />

the theater’s small but hallowed stage<br />

as it runs through July 21.<br />

“It’s going really, really well,” says<br />

Finkel, who is making his Playhouse<br />

debut with the production “What drew<br />

us to the show is it’s small and works<br />

for the kind of space we have. Part of<br />

BY CARL KOZLOWSKI<br />

the creator’s message in the forward of<br />

the libretto says ‘think of this as Busby<br />

Berkeley but on a postage stamp.’ Part<br />

of the satire is to create the same effect<br />

of having thousands of people onstage<br />

with just six.<br />

“It’s a tipping of the hat to movie<br />

musicals of the 1930s, and extremely<br />

American,” he continues. “Christian<br />

Lebano, the Playhouse’s artistic<br />

director, wants American theater by<br />

American playwrights and that’s his<br />

mission. It’s uniquely American, and<br />

what’s really cool is that they’re screening<br />

a movie series Wednesday nights<br />

of the movies ‘Dames’ is based on:<br />

‘42nd Street,’ ‘Gold Diggers of 1933’<br />

and ‘Footlight Parade,’ plus ‘Yankee<br />

Doodle Dandy.’”<br />

“Yankee Doodle Dandy” will screen<br />

at 8 p.m. July 3, while “Footlight Parade”<br />

follows at 8 p.m. July 10. “42nd<br />

Street” closes out the series at 8 p.m.<br />

July 17, with tickets to all three screenings<br />

available for $10 per movie.<br />

Finkel notes that all those films had<br />

the same basic cast or filmmakers, with<br />

stars like Ruby Keeler, Guy Blondell and<br />

James Cagney playing archetypes in<br />

archetypal plots. “Dames” is a takeoff<br />

of that style, as it “takes the stakes to<br />

crazy ridiculous situations the entire<br />

show, over one crazy long day of<br />

opening a Broadway show at the Hippodrome<br />

in the 1930s.”<br />

“The Works Progress Administration<br />

is moving in to demolish the theater<br />

because the producer couldn’t pay<br />

the bills after 12 flops in a row, so at<br />

the end of act one, the theater is demolished<br />

while they’re singing ‘Good Times<br />

are Here to Stay,’” laughs Finkel, who<br />

met Lebano when they were students<br />

in the theater program of the University<br />

of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. “The second<br />

act is on a ship after they’ve moved the<br />

show there, which is ridiculous that<br />

they could move the locations and write<br />

a whole new score for it in just one day.<br />

This is truly screwball level comedy.” n<br />

“Dames at Sea” runs through July 21 at the<br />

Sierra Madre Playhouse, 87 W. Sierra Madre<br />

Blvd., Sierra Madre. Tickets are $25 to $45.<br />

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

•FILM•<br />

BY CARL KOZLOWSKI<br />

You probably can’t go to any civilized place on the planet without<br />

hearing the music of The Beatles on a daily basis. Their music<br />

has dominated the pop culture landscape for well over 50 years,<br />

with 27 No. 1 singles in the US alone, and well over 100 million albums<br />

sold.<br />

But in “Yesterday” — the latest film from Danny Boyle, perhaps<br />

the most eclectic director working today (“Slumdog Millionaire,” “127<br />

Hours,” “Trainspotting”)— a struggling young musician named Jack<br />

(Himesh Patel ) is ready to give up on his ambitions after a disastrous<br />

appearance at a music festival. His longtime friend and manager Ellie<br />

(Lily James) is heartbroken by his decision, and tries to convince him<br />

that a miracle might be just around the corner.<br />

It turns out that she’s remarkably prescient, for while Jack rides his<br />

bike home that night, a worldwide power outage occurs for 12 seconds<br />

and he’s hit by a bus in the darkness. When he awakens in a hospital<br />

with his two front teeth missing, he also finds that no one around him<br />

knows who The Beatles are or recognizes any of their songs.<br />

Searching the Internet, he finds that there are literally no references<br />

to The Beatles, and his record collection is devoid of their albums<br />

as well. The Rolling Stones exist, but the Beatles-derivative band<br />

Oasis has also been wiped off the planet’s collective consciousness.<br />

Jack sees a golden opportunity in all of this, and proceeds to play from<br />

memory and record as many of the Fab Four’s tunes as he can, claiming<br />

the songs as his own.<br />

He immediately finds himself on a rocket ride to fame, as presentday<br />

superstar Ed Sheeran (playing himself with comic aplomb) sees<br />

him on a local TV show and hires him as his opening act on tour. But<br />

when Jack starts getting more fan mania than Ed himself and Ed’s<br />

comically ruthless manager (Kate McKinnon) pushes to make him the<br />

biggest artist of all time, things start to get complicated on both his<br />

professional front and his relationship with Ellie.<br />

“Yesterday” is a terrifically good time at the movies, with Boyle<br />

deftly handling the fantasy, comedy and romantic elements with total<br />

grace. Patel’s performance as Jack should be an instant star-maker for<br />

the actor, who has previously only worked in British television but has<br />

a magnetic ability to earn empathy for a character that might have just<br />

Missing Music<br />

DANNY BOYLE’S COMIC MUSICAL FANTASY ‘YESTERDAY’<br />

IMAGINES A WORLD WITHOUT THE BEATLES<br />

seemed like a selfish con artist in the hands of most actors.<br />

As Ellie, James is clearly channeling a young Keira Knightley with<br />

irresistible winsomeness, but the world needs more of that kind of<br />

delightful charm, especially when Knightley has matured into more<br />

complex roles. Sheeran brings surprising comical zing to his part, as<br />

he is increasingly baffled by Jack’s inexplicable ability to craft timeless<br />

classics like “The Long and Winding Road” in a bar bet on who can<br />

compose the best song within ten minutes. McKinnon brings a zesty<br />

sense of comic ruthlessness and greed to the table, delivering some of<br />

the funniest moments.<br />

The screenplay by Richard Curtis— the mastermind of rom-com<br />

classics “Four Weddings and a Funeral,” “Notting Hill” and “Love Actually”—<br />

stands up to that prior wonderful trio, grounding everything in<br />

relatable characters and, of course, ample opportunities to hear the<br />

greatest pop songs ever through the fresh voice and adaptations of Jack.<br />

Curtis layers in some intriguing moral quandaries as well, as Jack<br />

lives in constant fear of someone catching on to his ruse, or the world<br />

suddenly remembering The Beatles again. Nearly everyone has faced<br />

a moment in life where they could get away with a scam or a shortcut<br />

that is highly questionable, and the way that Jack faces his is both<br />

moving and entertaining.<br />

The film also provides some thoughtful insights into the creative<br />

process of great songwriting, as Jack and his producers put their own<br />

fresh tweaks on the tunes, turning “Help” into a revved-up rocker that<br />

sounds like a Ramones tune, for instance. And when Jack realizes he’s<br />

going to face questions about what inspired each song, he heads to key<br />

places like Liverpool to try and get his own understanding of places<br />

like Penny Lane and Eleanor Rigby’s grave.<br />

But the most fascinating part of this unexpected charmer is being<br />

forced to consider what would happen if the whole world was deprived<br />

of The Beatles’ joyous music. “Yesterday” makes you appreciate the<br />

magical soundtrack their music has played in all our lives since the<br />

early 1960s, and will hopefully continue to color our lives for generations<br />

to come. n<br />

CAPSULE REVIEWS<br />

BY CARL KOZLOWSKI<br />

LATE NIGHT<br />

Stars: Emma Thompson, Mindy Kaling<br />

Length: 102 minutes<br />

Directed by: Nisha Ganatra<br />

Rating: R<br />

This sharp yet relatable comedy follows what<br />

happens when a late-night host about to be<br />

put out to pasture (Thompson) hires a young<br />

superfan who appears to be just an unqualified<br />

diversity hire (Kaling) but winds up helping the<br />

host get her creative and fighting spirit back.<br />

Wise and witty, it has characters to root for and<br />

a refreshing can-do spirit that's inspirational.<br />

Grade: A<br />

THE LAST BLACK MAN IN<br />

SAN FRANCISCO<br />

Stars: Jimmie Fails,. Jonathan Majors<br />

Length: 121 minutes<br />

Directed by: Joe Talbot<br />

Rating: R<br />

A stunning acting debut by Fails, who also cowrote<br />

with director Talbot based on his own life<br />

story, this movie is a visually poetic ode to the<br />

title city as Fails breaks into and squats in the<br />

remarkable house he grew up in while the city<br />

changes around him unrecognizably. On every<br />

level, this is a unique artistic statement that<br />

recalls the earliest attention-getting works of<br />

Spike Lee at his best. Grade: A<br />

ROCKETMAN<br />

Stars: Taron Egerton, Jamie Bell<br />

Length: 121 minutes<br />

Directed by: Dexter Fletcher<br />

Rating: R<br />

This outstanding biopic of Elton John takes<br />

a different approach to telling a music<br />

legend's life story than last year's "Bohemian<br />

Rhapsody," using elaborate fantasy song<br />

and dance numbers that make this feel like a<br />

spectacular Broadway show, while also telling<br />

a more emotional tale of the rough road to selfacceptance.<br />

Grade: A<br />

MA<br />

Stars: Octavia Spencer, Diana Silvers,<br />

Juliette Lewis<br />

Length: 99 minutes<br />

Directed by: Tate Taylor<br />

Rating: R<br />

The latest comedic horror film from the usually<br />

reliable Blumhouse (“Get Out,” “Split”) stars<br />

Oscar-winner Octavia Spencer as a mysterious<br />

small-town woman who invites teens to party<br />

in her house on the edge of town, but turns<br />

out to have malevolent intentions. The first<br />

half is pretty fun, but the last half hour’s logic<br />

collapses and the film becomes an ugly mess.<br />

Grade: D<br />

JOHN WICK 3:<br />

PARABELLUM<br />

Stars: Keanu Reeves<br />

Length: 131 minutes<br />

Directed by: Chad Stahelski<br />

Rating: R<br />

The third time’s the charm, as Reeves returns<br />

as the world’s greatest hitman, dashing across<br />

New York while fighting off seemingly hundreds<br />

of assassins eager to take him down for a<br />

$14 million bounty. You really don’t even have<br />

to know the prior two films in the series to<br />

understand this – the movie has nearly wall<br />

to wall, brutal but nonetheless funny action.<br />

Grade: A<br />

THE PETITION requests authority to administer<br />

notice to interested persons unless they<br />

have waived notice or consented to the<br />

proposed action.) The independent administration<br />

authority will be granted unless an<br />

interested person files an objection to the<br />

petition and shows good cause why the<br />

court should not grant the authority.<br />

A HEARING on the petition will be held in<br />

this court as follows: 07/25/19 at 8:30AM<br />

in Dept. 79 located at 111 N. HILL ST., LOS<br />

ANGELES, CA 90012<br />

IF YOU OBJECT to the granting of the petition,<br />

you should appear at the hearing and<br />

state your objections or file written objections<br />

with the court before the hearing.<br />

Your appearance may be in person or by<br />

your attorney.<br />

IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a contingent<br />

creditor of the decedent, you must file your<br />

claim with the court and mail a copy to<br />

the personal representative appointed by<br />

the court within the later of either (1) four<br />

months from the date of first issuance of<br />

letters to a general personal representative,<br />

as defined in section 58(b) of the California<br />

Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date<br />

of mailing or personal delivery to you of a<br />

notice under section 9052 of the California<br />

Probate Code.<br />

may affect your rights as a creditor.<br />

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you<br />

are considering bidding on this property<br />

lien, you should understand that there are<br />

risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction.<br />

You will be bidding on a lien, not on<br />

the property itself. Placing the highest bid<br />

at a trustee auction does not automatically<br />

entitle you to free and clear ownership of<br />

the property. You should also be aware<br />

that the lien being auctioned off may be<br />

a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder<br />

at the auction, you are or may be responsible<br />

for paying off all liens senior to the<br />

lien being auctioned off, before you can<br />

receive clear title to the property. You are<br />

encouraged to investigate the existence,<br />

priority, and size of outstanding liens that<br />

may exist on this property by contacting<br />

the county recorder’s office or a title insurance<br />

company, either of which may charge<br />

you a fee for this information. If you consult<br />

either of these resources, you should be<br />

aware that the same lender may hold more<br />

than one mortgage or deed of trust on the<br />

property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER:<br />

The sale date shown on this notice of sale<br />

may be postponed one or more times by<br />

the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a<br />

information about trustee sale postponements<br />

be made available to you and to the<br />
