A ‘RAW’ IDEA

Re: “Cause for Concern: Council

members and developer want testing

for toxins possibly left by weapons

research at proposed housing site,”

May 9

I was over at Kaiser Medical offices on

Foothill last week and parked my car on

the top deck of the garage. This would be

a wonderful spot to have video cameras

set up (along with air monitors) to view

the Space Bank property and capture

chemical movement in the air, as well as the flow of any dust generated

by the project, and to observe that proper methods are being used

as proclaimed in the RAW (removal action workplan) for the project.

This location would test movement of dust flow for a portion of

the property — north, east and south. At the same time, a camera and

air monitors at the west end of the building could capture air flow to

the west, south and north, getting a complete measure of the RAW

process and making sure the process is safe for the public.

I think another public meeting should be planned to hear answers

to questions asked by the public and share any other information that

might be of concern. Research has provided spotty records from the

state Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) investigation.

OBVIOUS SOLUTION

Co2 levels, worldwide, have reached a disastrous level everywhere.

Without a fast solution, we may be going the way of Venus, no exaggeration

intended.

There is an obvious solution, folks: trees. Trees thrive on Co2. In

return, they produce oxygen. So, the obvious solution is for everyone

in the nation, who can do so, to get out and plant trees anywhere and

everywhere.

During World War II, millions

of citizens around the nation,

both children and adults,

went out and collected scrap

metal and old tires. Millions

of tons of scrap metal were

collected. Millions of old tires

were collected. The government

was fully behind this

effort and had signs in every

school and every meeting place

encouraging people to collect

and turn in scrap metal and old

tires.

What we need right now is

the same type of effort used in

World War II, with the government

helping out in the following

ways: 1) Provide bags of

seeds (for trees that absorb the

most Co2, while producing the

most oxygen) to all citizens

who can or will be able to plant

same. 2) Provide clear instructions

on what to do and how to

do it. 3) Distribute free seeds

in all schools and community

centers nationwide.

Can we do the foregoing?

Only if everyone starts bringing

it to the attention of the

president, as well as their state

and federal representatives.

Write letters, make phone calls,

send out e-mails. Don’t just sit

there folks. For God’s sake, DO

SOMETHING!

Otherwise Earth really will

begin to resemble Venus!

•GUEST OPINION•

BY ROBERT M. NELSON AND MARGUERITE RENNER

THE LEADERSHIP CRISIS

NOW IS THE TIME FOR DEMOCRATS TO CONSIDER A SANDERS-WARREN TICKET

The Democratic presidential debates of 2019 are under way. The early debates span

two nights because of the large number of candidates. By December there will have

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

acquainted with the candidates.

The debates are sanctioned by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) which

is the legal authority for all Democratic Party organizations throughout the country.

The DNC is officially neutral in these debates but, as in the past, the preferences of the

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

depend on the Democratic establishment for campaign support.

Recently, many presidential candidates previewed their campaigns at the California

Democratic Party state convention in San Francisco. Fourteen of the candidates spoke

to 3,000 Democratic activist delegates from around the state. The candidates made

earnest presentations to the delegates describing the problems facing society and

proposing programmatic solutions to those problems.

It’s About Wealth Polarization, Stupid!

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

people since the start of the Clinton administration 30 years ago. Clinton’s North

American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) exported hundreds of thousands of middleclass

jobs to overseas sweatshops. At home, displaced workers were reduced to

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

Banks sold financial aid packages to students and lobbied for tuition increases at

public colleges and universities. New college graduates found the loan repayments

were scandalously high. This set the stage for the Democratic campaigns of 2016 and

today.

In response to the crisis, a precious few of the Democratic candidates offer

dramatic solutions.

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

hour minimum wage, Medicare for all, and a return to a highly graduated progressive

income tax. He also proposed enlightened social concepts such as abolition of

the death penalty and criminal justice reform. Sanders did not get the Democratic

nomination but he attracted a loyal following.

Sanders is back again in the 2020 campaign but this time he has a competitive

colleague in the presidential quest — Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

Warren’s core economic proposal is a wealth tax. This dramatic concept would

support society with a tax on accumulated wealth — not just income. Accumulated

wealth over generations creates the ruling class of a capitalist system. In the past,

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

significantly starting in the 1990s and the cuts continue to today.

We now live in a highly stratified society.

The Circular Firing Squad

Sanders is a self-described democratic socialist, while Warren is a very progressive

capitalist. Combined, they represent the left progressive end of the 2020 Democratic

party debate. They are constantly pressured by the news media to distinguish

themselves from each other. Both Warren and Sanders refuse to do this.

The political left has a remarkable pattern of turning on itself rather than looking

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

Instead, Sanders and Warren concentrate their focus on the problems of capitalist

society and offer programs to address them.

The Old Establishment

Late last year, many local elected Democrats began whispering loudly that they

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

this contrived marriage has experienced a rocky start. For example, Biden, was a

longtime supporter of the Hyde amendment which prohibited the poor from access to

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

Democratic Party convention in an apparent nod to his possible running mate.

Harris did address the delegates but she was overshadowed by Warren, who spoke

in the same session. In keeping with the Warren-Sanders non-aggression pact, Sanders

chose not to speak the same day.

Biden, the favorite of party insiders, ducked the California convention, missing the

opportunity to expose himself to the 3,000 Democratic Party activists. Voters will have

ample opportunity to schmooze with Biden later — at lavish fundraisers in homes

located west of La Cienega Boulevard and north of the I-10 freeway.

As we absorb the debate, perhaps we should think about a Sanders-Warren ticket

and its program for America. They advocate ideas whose time has come. ■

CASUALTIES OF THE WAR ON DRUGS DEMAND A SHARE OF CITY’S CANNABIS BOUNTY

BY ANDRÉ COLEMAN

As more states legalize marijuana and private companies begin

applying for licenses to sell their wares in upscale places like

Pasadena, minority leaders are demanding that communities

of color share in the wealth of the billion-dollar industry — a once

illegal drug turned lucrative product that for years has led to the

disproportionate incarceration of African Americans and Latinos.

Earlier this month, Pasadena officials announced the selection

of six businesses leading the city into the now legitimate world of

selling weed. They are: Integral Associates Dena, Tony Fong, the

Atrium Group, Harvest Pasadena, Sweetflower Pasadena and MME

Pasadena Retail. The six were top scorers among the applicants in

Pasadena and can now begin the process of obtaining permits to

sell marijuana in Pasadena.

71°

However, all six owners proposed Old Pasadena locations for

their businesses, leading to calls for social equity by activists,

who insist that minority communities unfairly impacted by the

war on drugs should be able to share in the wealth now that

marijuana is legal.

“I appreciate that some members of our community would like

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

selection process or perhaps serve as the sole determinate and

I have met with several people who hold this view, and I respect

their opinions,” City Manager Steve Mermell told the Pasadena

Weekly. “Nevertheless, I believe we have struck the right balance

for our city through a fair and transparent process.”

Based on public input, the city modified its requirements and

ALL SAINTS OFFERS

SANCTUARY AS TRUMP

THREATENS ICE RAIDS

On the heels of an announcement by President

Donald Trump that 2,000 undocumented immigrants

would be rounded up in 10 cities, one of

them Los Angeles, All Saints Church in Pasadena

has promised sanctuary to those who fear

deportation.

“All Saints Church condemns these raids and

the actions of President Trump which authorized

them,” said Rector Mike Kinman. “Any individuals

or families who are targeted by ICE [Immigration

and Customs Enforcement] for deportation will be

provided sanctuary in our sacred space.”

Pre-dawn raids and arrests were scheduled

to take place this week, according to CNN, but on

Sunday Trump tweeted that he was putting them

off for two weeks while he worked with Democrats

on immigration issues.

“At the request of Democrats, I have delayed

the illegal immigration removal process (deportation)

for two weeks to see if the Democrats and

Republicans can get together and work out a

solution to the asylum and loophole problems at

the Southern Border. If not, deportations start,”

the president said.

While All Saints does perform as a sanctuary

for undocumented immigrants, Pasadena is

not a sanctuary city, a term which has no legal

definition.

In 2017, the City Council unanimously passed

an official resolution declaring that “The city of

Pasadena will not enforce federal immigration

laws and the city manager will ensure that all city

policies are consistent with this declaration.”

According to CNN, ICE was also scheduled

to make arrests in Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago,

Denver, Houston, Miami, New Orleans, New York,

and San Francisco.

After the news broke, some cities immediately

fired back, saying they wouldn’t cooperate with the

raids and warned residents to make sure they had

functional locks on their doors. Residents are not

required to open their doors to officials from ICE

unless they have a warrant signed by a judge.

“This action by our government is the worst

of fear-mongering and white supremacy,” Kinman

wrote. “Beloved, productive and irreplaceable

images of God, including many from our own

Pasadena and All Saints community, once again

have to fear that they will have their families torn

apart, perhaps forever, which causes devastating

harm to them and the communities of which

they are a part. It is an unconscionable use of

fear to continue to divide our nation for political

purposes.”

JUDGE RULES AGAINST COUNTY

IN ‘BIG DIG’ LAWSUIT

BY ANDRÉ COLEMAN

A Los Angeles Superior Court judge postponed a trial over

a lawsuit filed against the Los Angeles County Flood Control

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

of Devil’s Gate Dam, located in Hahamongna Watershed

Park, ruling the county did not provide enough time for people to comment on the

project’s environmental impact report.

The Flood Control District is currently in the early stages of removing 1.7 million

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

project that could last four years and require daily hauling of up to 475 truckloads of

dirt.

Tim Brick, managing director of the Arroyo Seco Foundation, which along with

the Pasadena Audubon sued the district, said the foundation agreed to the postponement

because it was not its intention to stop the sediment removal project.

“Our goal has been to minimize the negative aspects of the project, such as

noise, dust, traffic and air pollution, and to ensure that the resulting Hahamongna

management program is ongoing and protects the unique environmental values of

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

of directors.

“We want the county to treat the Arroyo Seco like a river and to implement

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

the challenges of nature,” Brick said in a prepared statement.

If the two sides cannot develop an agreement, Judge James Chalfant will hear

oral arguments on July 30 regarding the tentative ruling. If he finalizes the tentative

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

EIR and set aside or vacate the project’s approvals. All project activity would

then cease pending revision of the project’s environmental document.

The Arroyo Seco Foundation and the Pasadena Audubon Society are expected

to work with county flood control officials to develop a comprehensive settlement

agreement.

“The Pasadena Audubon Society is gratified that the court recognizes that the

county has failed to work transparently with the public, despite their frequent claims

to the contrary,” said Laura Solomon, president of the Pasadena Audubon Society.

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

people by shrinking the size of the permanent footprint of the project, using the

cleanest trucks possible to move the sediment, and truly restoring the Hahamongna

basin, especially the nesting habitat they have destroyed,” Solomon said. n

AMERICAFEST RETURNS TO

THE ROSE BOWL JULY 4TH

BY ANDRÉ COLEMAN

Pasadena will once again celebrate Independence Day

at the Rose Bowl with AmericaFest, the West Coast’s

largest fireworks show.

The 93rd annual Americafest event, which will include

live music, veterans’ tributes, motocross stunts and a

Darryl Dunn

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

The show is among the oldest fireworks shows in LA County, and the Rose

Bowl was recently recognized by Los Angeles Magazine as one of the best places in

LA to watch fireworks.

“It’s exciting because this year’s Rose Bowl AmericaFest celebration will feature

the largest fireworks display in the western United States,” said Darryl Dunn, Rose

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

musical pyrotechnic show as we celebrate our nation’s birthday.”

The event will honor the Disney remake of “The Lion King,” which hits

theaters on July 19. Several Southland choirs will be on hand to sing songs

from the film.

The new film blends live-action, state-of-the-art virtual-reality techniques

and computer generated imagery to bring the iconic characters to life in a whole

different way. Walt Disney Records’ highly acclaimed a cappella group DCappella

joins the celebration. The award-winning USC a capella group Socal VoCals will

also perform.

The show will also pay tribute to the 50th anniversary of one of the greatest

moments in American history with a preview from “Apollo 11: The Immersive Live

Show,” an experience that takes visitors from countdown to launch of the giant

Saturn V rocket to the moon.

In addition, TNT Freestyle Motocross returns to take to the air, performing

gasp-inducing motorcycle stunts.

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

opens at 2 p.m. Doors open at 5 p.m.

Performances begin at 7 p.m. and the fireworks kick off at 9 p.m. Admission is

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

members.

included categories on “social equity and community

benefits in the application and asked specifically how

cannabis owners would ensure that persons most

harmed by cannabis criminalization and poverty

through a share in the ownership, management,

employment or other benefits resulting in high

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

Mermell said.

According to the applications of the six

businesses chosen, only the Atrium Group has a

clear social equity plan.

Atrium plans to hold seminars to teach local

residents convicted of marijuana crimes how to

expunge their records. Further, the group has also

partnered with Ideal Youth, and will provide job

training for local youth.

“Cannabis criminalization and its enforcement

has had a long-term impact on low-income and

minority community members in the city of

Pasadena and throughout our nation,” said Ismael

Trone, head of the nonprofit organization that

will work with the Atrium Group. “For the city

of Pasadena to incorporate social equity into its

application process is a giant step toward repairing

the harm caused by the war on drugs and disparate

enforcement of cannabis prohibition.”

Integral Associates, the applicant that scored the

highest in the city’s process, will form a group led

by former City Councilman and current Chamber of

Commerce CEO Paul Little. Little told the Pasadena

Weekly social equity would be a major part of the

group’s focus.

“The idea is to help them negotiate the

community and help them with social equity,” Little

said. “We will be figuring out how they are going to

support the community and how they are going to

implement hiring and have as much of an impact on

the local community as possible.”

In its application, the company also said it would

hire a law firm to ensure that communities hit

hardest by the war on drugs would benefit from the

company’s presence in Pasadena.

According to a 2009 story by Jake Armstrong

appearing in the Pasadena Weekly, between 2004 and

2008 African Americans accounted for more than

half of all marijuana arrests in Pasadena — three

times the number of whites and almost twice the

number of Latinos — though blacks made up only 14

percent of the city’s population.

Black residents were arrested on felony

marijuana charges in Pasadena at far higher

percentages than any other ethnic group, having

been charged with more than half of all felony

marijuana arrests since 2004, though nearly 90

percent of the marijuana-related offenses during that

period were misdemeanors.

According to recent studies, California arrest

rates for marijuana-related crimes have declined

dramatically since legalization, but the stark racial

disparity remains in place as black people were still

three times as likely as whites to be arrested in 2016.

“As white people exploit the changing tide on

marijuana, the racism that drove its prohibition

is ignored,” Vincent M. Southerland, executive

director of NYU Law’s Center on Race, Inequality

and the Law, and Johanna B. Steinberg of the Bronx

Defenders, recently wrote for The New York Times.

“So are the consequences for black communities,

where the war on drugs is most heavily waged.”

In March, African-American lawmakers in New

York announced they would block a push to legalize

recreational marijuana in New York unless people of

color were guaranteed a share of the industry. They

want to be assured that some of that money will go

toward job training programs, and that minority

entrepreneurs will receive licenses to cultivate or

sell marijuana.

According to Assemblywoman Crystal Peoples-

Stokes, the first African-American woman to serve

as Assembly majority leader in New York, all 10

states that have established laws legalizing cannabis,

including California, made the same mistake.

“I haven’t seen anyone do it correctly,” she told

The New York Times.

“They thought we were going to trust that at the

end of the day, these communities would be invested

in. But that’s not something I want to trust,” she

continued. “If it’s not required in the statute [in New

York], then it won’t happen.”

Trone called on the city to do more.

“Social equity goals should be to promote

equitable ownership and employment opportunities

in the cannabis industry to decrease disparities in

life outcomes for marginalized communities. Ideal

Youth research into the career opportunities in

the cannabis industry has led the organization to

embrace the cannabis industry as a legitimate career

path and inform local parents and society as a whole

to also embrace the cannabis industry as a career

path,” Trone said.

Los Angeles, Oakland, Sacramento, San

Francisco and Long Beach have established social

equity cannabis programs.

Last year, California Gov. Jerry Brown signed

legislation — the California Cannabis Equity Act

of 2018 — intended to help municipalities increase

participation in the programs. Lawmakers have

allocated $10 million toward the effort.

“There are so many opportunities in the

cannabis industry for young, motivated, bright

minds,” Trone said. “It’s a great opportunity

for young adults to get into a growing dynamic

field and learn so much about so many different

industries. Cannabis is a stimulating learning

environment because it touches on so many

different industries such as legal, political,

financial, retail, agricultural, marketing, science,

etc. These opportunities provide young people a

peek into how these disciplines interact and make

cannabis ideal for career growth.” n

PASADENA MUSEUM OF HISTORY CELEBRATES CITY’S BIRTHDAY

WITH AN AFTERNOON OF WILD WEST FUN

BY CARL KOZLOWSKI

Pasadena is a colorful city that has unlimited opportunities to celebrate

its unique qualities, and each June the Pasadena Museum of History

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

all. This Sunday, the museum will outdo itself with an afternoon filled with

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

birthday party, tied to its current exhibit, “Giddyup! Children

Take the Reins.”

The jam-packed afternoon of entertainment and activities

includes a colossal cake designed by Baja Ranch Supermarket

Pasadena to feed the anticipated 1,500 guests, as well as performances

by five-time international trick roping record holder

Christy Lewis and the chance to rope a wooden steer. But the

fun doesn’t stop there, as attendees can clap their hands and

stomp their feet to classic Western and cowboy songs, or climb

aboard and explore an authentic reproduction of a Wells

Fargo Concord Stagecoach , one of America’s most legendary

vehicles.

The Crown City Chorus will entertain the crowds with barbershop

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

Fastest Crafter in the West!” will help attendees create their own custom

cowboy hats. Add in the chance to do gold panning, have water splashing

fun with “Pump and Splash” and meet Mayor Terry Tornek and his trusty

deputies, and your family will be galloping back home as happy campers.

the exhibit. Since there are

all these horses we went with

a Western theme of ‘Yahoo!

Happy Birthday Pasadena!’

“We’ll be turning the grounds

into a Western world with world

champion trick ropers, gold panning,

line dance lessons, the Wells

Fargo stagecoach, the Crown City

Chorus singing cowboy and western

songs,” adds Macneil. “There’s a lot

going on.”

Macneil notes that Gray, who lives

in Pasadena, also helped another PMH

exhibit years ago by supplying carousel

animals. He notes that “carousels are

disappearing because of insurance and

various other issues,” yet Gray has spent decades

collecting and restoring them herself.

She maintains a warehouse in the Duarte area where she keeps them all and

works on them.

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

smaller-scaled carousel horses and exotic creatures that visitors of all ages will

be able to see and touch. An enchanting photo booth features a carousel polar

bear designed by J.R. Anderson circa 1920 that children and adults can climb

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

they rock, bounce and roll.

The goal is to bring back

awareness of a time when

carousels enabled children

to imitate their favorite

movie cowboys. Gray’s

Running Horse studio

in Irwindale houses

memorabilia and carousel

figures of all sizes

from her collection,

particularly from the

Golden Age of carousels

from 1861 to 1920, within

its 7,000 square feet, and she carefully

restores figures for other collectors and operational

carousels as well.

“This is the official birthday party for the city and we’ve been

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

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

way to celebrate the history of the city.

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

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

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

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

here too, and many community groups like the Jaycees having tables

sharing information. Most will have interactive activities for people to visit, so

no one will be left looking for ways to have fun.” ■

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

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

( BEAUTY & BRAWN )

AS STRONG AS THEY ARE MAJESTIC, CLYDESDALES HAVE PLAYED A PROUD ROLE IN PASADENA HISTORY

BY SHEILA MENDES COLEMAN

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

hooves, the beefy flanks that support them prancing in rhythm with each

other. Their gallop is steady and sure, and every movement seems to exude

purpose and regality.

They are the mighty Clydesdale horses, and they have achieved rock star

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

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

Parades since 1954, but because their strength and history of service to man is

legendary.

Lampits Mare

The Clydesdale horse began its storied history in Lanarkshire, Scotland in

an area through which the Clyde River flows, known then as Clydesdale. Flemish

stallions imported to the region were bred with local mares, resulting in a

genetically superior horse. The farmers of Lanarkshire recognized at the time

the horse’s might and versatility in helping them work the land and utilized the

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

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

and began a lineage of pedigreed Clydesdales that traced back to a group of black

stallions originally imported from England. It is Lampits Mare that is listed in

the ancestry of virtually every Clydesdale alive today. Once a successful breeding

program was established in the late 19th century and early 20th century, the

horses were soon exported to America, Northern England, New Zealand and

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

“the breed that built Australia,” according to the Clydesdale Horse Society.

Considered invaluable to pre-industrial farmers, Clydesdales were known for

their sturdy build, patience, docile temperament and ability to perform arduous

hauling tasks on the farm. These traits have continued in its lineage, making

them as strong as they are beautiful. The hardy draft horses are even-tempered

and easily trainable, often being called “gentle giants.”

In addition to their easily recognizable gait and handsome profile, the Clydesdale

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

of the lower leg that cover the hooves and, according to the Anheuser Busch

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

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

York homes, Adolphus Busch purchased a stately home in Pasadena near Arroyo

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

Roehrig and located on South Orange Grove Avenue. The Busch family’s

dream to develop the arroyo behind their property into scenic walking gardens

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

immensely popular tourist attraction to the area and included “Triangle Trolley

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

Adolphus’ death in 1913, his widow Lilly, daughter of partner Eberhard Anheuser,

continued the tradition of public access to the gardens until her death in 1928,

when they were closed for some time.

In August 1933, August A. Busch Jr. and Adolphus Busch III gifted their father,

German immigrant August Anheuser Busch Sr. with a six-horse Clydesdale hitch

carrying the first case of post-Prohibition beer to celebrate the end of America’s

dry period. Legend has it the elder Busch was so moved by the gesture he was

brought to tears, hence the term “crying in your beer.”

Busch Sr. recognized the enormous marketing and public relations potential

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

them across the country as goodwill ambassadors for the Budweiser brand, and

to mark the end of the country’s ban on alcohol from 1920 to 1933.

In the 1950s the spotted Dalmatian became the official mascot for the Clydesdale.

Over a half-century later, these charming canine companions continue their

partnership with the Clydesdales and you can find a Dalmatian seated next to

the driver on each hitch. Currently, three teams of Clydesdales travel the United

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

Colorado, the Eastern Hitch, located in New Hampshire, with the remaining

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

on each team, with eight harnessed for performances and two used as alternates.

Transporting each hitch requires three 50-foot semi-trucks, two for the horses,

and the last one for the emblematic red, white and gold beer wagon, a modified

Studebaker originally manufactured in the 1900s.

The Budweiser Clydesdales participated in the Rose Parade, pulling the City

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

pulling the emblematic Budweiser beer wagon. They now pull the Wells Fargo

Stagecoach. Today, the mighty Clydesdale continues to delight, and much of

Pasadena’s history along Orange Grove is owed to the Busch family and their

legacy of public works. Indeed, a significant portion of what we now consider Old

Pasadena is built on the remnants of the horse farms and acreage that surrounded

their beloved “Ivy Wall.”

Jeannette Collier, committee services manager for the Tournament of Roses,

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

( BIRDS OF A

DIFFERENT FEATHER )

THERE ONCE WAS A TIME WHEN TOURISTS COULD ACTUALLY RIDE OSTRICHES IN SOUTH PASADENA

BY JANA J. MONJI

Long before the ostentation of Arcadia’s noisy peacocks gained

infamy and the pandemonium of parrots squawked their way

through Pasadena and the San Gabriel Valley, there was a bird

of another feather that had tourists flocking to South Pasadena:

ostriches. The ungainly, flightless birds were once like the goose

that laid golden eggs, but it was feathers that made them valuable.

The enterprising Edwin Cawston opened the farm in 1886 near

Norwalk, by importing 50 ostriches from South Africa. The birds

made their way by boat to Texas and then came to the Los Angeles

area by train. Only 18 survived. Yet, eventually the farm’s feathered

friends numbered over 100 and the farm moved to South Pasadena

in 1895. The whole enterprise might seem like madness today, but

during the late 19th century wings, breasts and whole birds (small

ones) were popular flourishes to hats. Ostrich feather plumes were

in such high demand that ostrich farms were lucrative businesses

in South Africa.

According to KCET, a single bird could produce $250 in feathers

in one year. English naturalist Charles Sketchley opened Southern

California’s first farm in 1883 in Los Angeles but closed in 1889.

Cawston, on the other hand, was so successful that he used his

South Pasadena location, which was conveniently located along the

Pacific Electric interurban railway, for tourism. At the Pasadena

farm, tourists could pay to ride in carriages drawn by an ostrich

or the braver ones could actually ride one bareback. The gift shop

sold feather boas and other ostrich feather souvenirs. Cawston had

another location in Perris for breeding.

The market for ostrich plumes plummeted in the 1910s, but

the tourist trade kept Cawston’s going until 1934. This type of

amusement farm was doomed anyway because in 1954 Disneyland

opened in Anaheim. Orange County — once the ostrich capital of

the nation during the ostrich feather heyday, according to the OC

Weekly — was the site of an ostrich farm revival, according to a

1994 LA Times article about an ostrich farmer who thought they

were the protein of the future, but that farm has vanished.

One used to be able to get an ostrich burger at Jake’s

of Pasadena in Old Pas, but Jake’s closed in 2015. Fuddruckers

also used to offer an ostrich burger, but the

Pasadena location closed, too, although you might

be able to get ostrich at some Fuddruckers (Fuddruckers

Exotic Burgers) but that depends upon

the location. If you gander a taste of the feathered

flightless fowl that formerly made its home in

South Pasadena, you can try Harmony Farms

(harmonyfarmsca.com) in La Crescenta (2824

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

with herds of these birds is OstrichlandUSA

(ostrichlandusa.com), near Solvang. No ostrich

rides (bareback or otherwise) are available, but

you can get some ostrich jerky, emu

eggs and feather dusters,

You can still visit the

location of the South

Pasadena farm, but while

the outside has mostly

been preserved, the animals

inside have changed

to humans. The site of the

historic Cawston Ostrich

Farm (1010 Sycamore Ave.)

was redeveloped in 2006 into 53

live/work loft condos, fittingly

named Ostrich Farm Lofts. The

ostriches may be gone, but one

can still celebrate Pasadena and

its unique history by dressing up in

one’s finery and flapping one’s wings

while dancing like no one’s looking.

Happy Birthday, Pasadena. ■

( RIDING HIGH )

HORSES LEND A SENSE OF STYLE AND ADVENTURE TO THE ANNUAL ROSE PARADE

BY KEVIN UHRICH

On New Year’s Day 1994, instead of riding in a car or a

carriage, William “Capt. Kirk” Shatner, an avid equestrian,

boldly went where few Rose Parade grand marshals had

ever gone before.

Shatner rode one of his own horses down Colorado Boulevard,

a chestnut-colored gelding once named “I Prefer Roses,” bred

on a ranch the star owned in Kentucky. Along the way, the then

62-year-old actor doffed his cowboy-style hat and waved to the

throngs of spectators and fans lining both sides of the 5.5-milelong

parade route.

Shatner must have felt right at home on horseback leading the

annual parade, which every year since its inception has featured

either horses pulling floats or renowned equestrian riders. In the

modern era, some of those teams have included, among other

participants, the New Buffalo Soldiers, the US Marine Corps, and

the Wells Fargo Stagecoach and Budweiser beer wagon, the latter

two pulled by magnificent Clydesdales.

In fact, a few days prior to each year’s parade, Wells Fargo

Bank presents Equestfest at the LA Equestrian Center on Riverside

Drive in Burbank, near Griffith Park, illustrating just how

important horses remain to “America’s New Year’s Day Celebration,”

as the Tournament of Roses has come to call the floral

spectacular.

Soon after 1890, the year the parade started, Tournament officials

initiated the Never on Sunday rule, thinking not so much

about observing some blue law, or ordinance that prohibits such

things as the sale of alcohol and working, but the danger posed

by horses being spooked as folks left services from the many

churches that line protions of the boulevard.

In 1901, motorized floats were introduced and would become

an integral part of each parade since then. But in those days, the

noisy, smoky contraptions were placed in the rear of the parade,

again in order to keep them from scaring

the horses.

By 1920, horses were still a big part of

the pageant, only by this time floats operating

on gasoline- or electricity-powered motors

had taken over the duties of propelling

the flower-bedecked floats along the parade

route, according to the Tournament. And over

the years, the parade’s equestrian entries have

become more professional and more stylized.

Some of the units that have participated

in Equestfest, according to the Tournament,

include the Clydesdales of the First Cavalry Division

from Fort Hood, Texas, USC mascot Traveler,

the Sons and Daughters of the Reel West, and

the California State Fire Fighters Association.

Former Rose Parade announcer Bob Eubanks, a rodeo

cowboy at one point in his long show business career, and

Shawn Parr have served as announcers of Equestfest over

the years. Montie Montana, a Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame

member and a rodeo trick rider and trick roper, was a perennial

entry in the annual parade. The actor and stuntman

rode in 60 parades until his death in May 1998.

The lineup for 2020 is not yet complete, but over

the past decade riding teams have ranged in size

from 23 in 2010 to as few as 16 in 2014, according

to the Tournament. Equestrian teams marching in

last year’s parade numbered 18 and, in alphabetical order,

included:

• 1st Cavalry Division, Horse Cavalry Detachment

(Fort Hood, Texas)

• The Valley Hunt Club (Pasadena)

• United States Marine Corps Mounted Color Guard (Barstow)

• US Forest Service Pack Mules Celebrate Smokey Bear’s 75th

(Vallejo)

• Wells Fargo Stagecoaches (San Francisco)

The theme of the 1994 parade, A Fantastic Adventure, seemed a fitting

match for Shatner, and he made the most of it.

“It will definitely be an adventure,” Shatner told United Press International

(UPI).

Prior to the 1994 parade, he had changed the original name of the horse

he was riding on to “I Prefer Montana,” according to the Los Angeles

Times.

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

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

almost too good to be true,” said the actor.

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

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

Times and YouTube, and in 2004 he appeared in a documentary about the

parade with former parade announcer Stephanie Edwards.

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

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

1993, “The fantastic adventure will be shared by the 1 million people who

come out to watch the parade as well as the half a billion who will see it

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

( RACING TOWARD

TOMORROW )

IN SPITE OF ITS RECENT TROUBLES, HISTORY-DRENCHED SANTA ANITA PARK

CONTINUES TO EVOLVE AS A CULTURAL HUB

BY CELENE VARGAS

Perhaps no other cultural institution in Southern California better

exemplifies our fascination with and love of horses than Santa Anita

Park. Yes, it’s having many problems now, with 30 horses since

December being injured while running on the track and later

euthanized. But since opening in 1934, Santa Anita has

been a national hub of competitive horse racing

action.

While the original racetrack was

opened in 1907 by Elias J. “Lucky” Baldwin

in what is now known as Arcadia Park, the

Santa Anita we know today dates back to late

1934 when San Francisco dentist Charles H.

Strub and movie mogul Hal Roach re-opened

the track in its current location, just a few

blocks away from the old one, after the legalization

of pari-mutuel gambling the prior year.

Santa Anita’s rich history was foretold when

its 1930s inception found success despite the Great

Depression. Just months after opening, the first

Santa Anita Handicap had a purse of $100,000, a previously

unheard of amount that equals about $1.8 million

today. Referred to as the “Hundred-Grander,” the Santa

Anita Handicap quickly became one of the top races in

the nation.

Santa Anita Park soon became a part of Hollywood

movie history when the 1937 classic “A Day at the Races”

featured the Marx Bros. wreaking havoc at the park. Santa

Anita went on to be used in a variety of

other films, such as “Public Enemies,” the

movie starring Johnny Depp as Depression-era

American gangster John

Dillinger, and, of course the movie

“Seabiscuit,” starring Tobey Maguire.

By 1940, legendary racehorse

Seabiscuit had made a name for itself

and cemented itself as part of

Santa Anita’s history. It won that

year’s handicap after two previous

attempts and a 1939 injury

that many thought would be the end of the

horse’s career. In 1941, a life-size statue of the horse

was installed in the park and still stands there today.

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

As also noted in a recent PW story about the park, in 1942 Santa Anita

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

horse stalls and in barracks before sending them to internment camps.

Fast-forwarding to 1969, the park saw another historical moment made even

more pivotal considering the cultural climate when Tuesdee Testa became the

first female jockey to win at a major American racetrack after winning at Santa

Anita on March 1.

The park continued to flex its prestige when it not only hosted the equestrian

events for the 1984 Olympic Summer Games but also the Breeders’ Cup

World Championships in 1986. The latter is an international event that features

the world’s greatest horses,

jockeys and trainers with a

winning prize of $1 million.

It wouldn’t be the last time

the park would host this

event.

The introduction of

the Tokyo City Cup at

Santa Anita in 2005,

a celebration of its

sister track in Japan,

expanded the park’s

reach. In turn,

every summer Ohi Racecourse

holds “Santa Anita Week”

and features the ”Santa Anita Trophy,” a

one mile G3 race.

Even though the park is still a major spot for horse-racing,

times have changed and so have the avenues of entertainment.

No longer do families pack a lunch to watch a race in droves.

While Santa Anita Park struggles to resolve and overcome its horses’ injuries

and fatalities, with both members of the public and political figures calling

for the suspension of races, at the very least until a thorough investigation

is done, the racetrack will remain as a major part of the community’s

identity through its history alone.

What remains to be seen, aside from how the park will implement or

respond to potential new safety measures, is how the park will evolve

to help shape the future of the community. Some recent events have included

hosting pop-up food stalls, which garnered new community interest. Maybe

this can be a new way people can continue to picnic at the races. ■

GREEN EARTH VEGAN CUISINE

BOASTS A MENU ALL CAN ENJOY

BY EVELYN GARCIA

PHOTOS BY DANNY LIAO

In recent weeks I have been attempting to change my diet for health

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

although I’m not very strict and this job allows me what I would consider

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

another vegan adventure this week, which was not entirely intentional.

After some time revisiting the website of Green Earth Vegan Cuisine in Old

Pasadena, and again salivating over photos they’ve posted, I decided it was

finally time to try it.

When I walked in the first thing I noticed on the back wall in the center

of the room were a couple of rows containing books on vegan dieting.

Cookbooks, clinical studies and firsthand accounts of people who converted

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

grab one, I began to understand Green Earth Vegan Cuisine is not like the

hipster, “cool” overpriced vegan spots that strive for Instagram likes and

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

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

area, and has a huge following of all kinds of dieters.

There were only two other parties in the restaurant, so my friend and

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

of choices, that I genuinely had a hard time deciding on appetizers. My

quinoa, carrots, cucumber, avocado and portabella

mushroom wrapped in sushi nori. Both are glutenfree

and soy-free, and were delicious. I love sushi,

and while it is obviously not like the real thing it’s an

amazing alternative for anyone missing it or who just

wants to try a delicious quinoa roll.

Our favorite starters were the golden crispy

rolls ($6), which were the equivalent to a veggie

egg roll, minus the egg. They’re served with lettuce,

cucumber, mint and Vietnamese vinaigrette.

Throughout the entirety of the meal our waiter was

extremely helpful in answering questions we had,

and as a lifelong vegetarian then later vegan himself,

was very knowledgeable. When he brought over the

crispy rolls he asked if we knew how to eat them

Vietnamese style, and then showed us the proper

way: Take a roll and roll it in a piece of lettuce along

with a slice of cucumber and mint leaf, then dip it all

into the vinaigrette. If I was served this blindfolded,

I would have never guessed it was egg-less or filled

with vegetables only, thanks to the overabundance

of flavor packed into such a small roll.

To drink, I ordered lemonade made from freshly

squeezed lemons ($4.50). Our waiter asked if it was

too sour, but it was perfect, and my friend ordered

a Thai iced tea with soy milk ($4). I had difficulty

deciding on our main entree as well, because they

have about every type of pastas (lasagna included),

rice plates, noodles, ramen, pho, won tons, hot

and cold salads, burgers and sandwiches, all

with soy protein or tofu options. The possibilities

were endless, yet somehow all I was craving were

noodles. I asked about the pad Thai ($10) and he said

that although it’s not listed on the menu, they are

actually spicy, and I was sold. A few bites in I could

definitely taste the kick, but a few more and I found

myself alternating between water and my lemonade

to find some relief for my tongue, which was on fire.

Still, I loved it. It is made with stir fry rice noodles

(which are gluten-free), tofu, mushrooms, carrots,

bean sprouts and broccoli, garlic, all flavored with

tamarind and topped with toasted peanuts.

It was hard to imagine that my friend’s gourmet

burrito ($11) would be as good as my plate of spicy

goodness, but it was. The burrito was made with

textured vegetable protein seasoned to taste like

beef, brown rice, lettuce, guacamole and pico de

gallo, wrapped beautifully in a whole wheat tortilla

served with a choice of fries or side salad. I had a few

bites and couldn’t believe it. Surprise is a common

reaction each time I venture into the world of vegan

eats, and he was right there with me. Put simply, it

tasted like it could be served at Taco Bell as “real”

beef, only with much, much higher quality and far

better ingredients, of course. I could go back just

for the crispy rolls and the burrito and be one happy

camper.

One thing is clear: Green Earth Vegan Cuisine

does not skimp on the flavor. Every dish on their

menu is made with a list of ingredients that

harmoniously blend together in a way I know both

tastes great and feels great.

Green Earth has a hefty list of desserts they make

in house, but we wanted a few minutes to walk off

our dinner, so we made our way across the street

to Paradis Ice Cream. It’s a small shop with several

locations across Southern California, but another I

had yet to enjoy prior to that day. Upon entering, a

staircase leads to an open seating area upstairs and

immediately to the left is the glass casing filled with

unique flavors. After taste testing a few, including

the Oreo, which is typically my favorite, I decided

to keep with the theme and got the cookie crumble

vegan flavor in the single scoop ($4), which was

delicious, and my friend got two scoops ($5.50) of

the banana sundae and peanut butter bar.

Between an amazing dinner and tasty dessert

that we enjoyed as we walked up and down Colorado

Blvd., I was reminded yet again of how lucky we are

to live in a city with some of the most well-known,

sought after and hidden treasures in which to dine

and share a special evening with loved ones.

TWIN

OPPOSITES

GENTLE PARENTAL CUES SHOULD

HELP SLOW DOWN ONE TODDLER

AND DISINHIBIT ANOTHER

Dear Patti,

My wife and I have adorable twin daughters, Poppy and Belle, who

recently turned 2. They’re at an age where they’re now becoming more

mobile, in control of their own bodies and able to make more choices for

themselves. Poppy is a totally free and fearless spirit and toddles off as fast

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

watched, the situation can quickly become dangerous. Poppy loves to explore

without regard for any boundaries. Accordingly, my wife and I have to chase

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

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

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

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

that her mom or I will stay close by.

So here we have one daughter who is extremely timid and another who is

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

different innate personality traits, our own approaches to parenting, or if

the girls are becoming polarized due to their relationship with each other. We

see other children our daughters’ age and most of their behaviors appear to

be somewhere in the middle between our two. We would like to teach Poppy

boundaries and assist Belle in becoming more secure. My wife and I both

value your opinion and want to know what you think.

— Liam

Dear Liam,

At approximately 18 months old, toddlers begin to gain a heightened awareness

that they’re separate individuals and want to start exploring their environment.

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

develop. If a parent repeatedly shows fear whenever an adventuresome streak

emerges, however, the toddler might get the message that the world isn’t safe

and can then become timid and afraid. Therefore, Poppy may need repeated and

gentle boundary-setting that is without punishment or which induces no fear. It

should be kept in mind that if a child turns for reassurance during these explorations

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

may suddenly feel abandoned and start to exhibit “clingy” behaviors. Belle might

have somehow learned insecurity about being on her own and, thus, needs gentle

encouragement without giving her the message that her shyness is somehow bad

or wrong.

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

it might also be a good idea to take them out separately in order to support

their individual needs.

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

concerns about her becoming more sociable and secure are valid, the problem

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

different surroundings is something new to her. If you start pushing her too hard

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

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

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

The words and body language you and your wife use should be free

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

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

situations available for her to explore a little farther away in a safe area. Always

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

take the lead and be quick to follow.

As for Poppy, her adventuresome personality is wonderful but she may need

your singular concentration to teach her to listen to your guidelines in order for

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

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

‘DANGEROUS AND INSANE’

City to vigorously enforce fireworks ban during holiday

City officials are reminding local residents that they

plan to hold people responsible for possessing, selling

and discharging fireworks, including land owners who

allow fireworks to be set off on their property.

The city maintains a zero-tolerance enforcement

policy for fireworks, and Pasadena police officers

and firefighters are teaming up for special fireworks

enforcement patrols before, during and after the Fourth

of July holiday. Violators are subject to arrest, having

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

National Fire Protection Association statistics reveal that 90 percent of all

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

also illegal in Pasadena.

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

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

time, expensive fines, having your car impounded or other serious penalties by taking

risks. Leave the fireworks to the professionals.”

Pasadena police and fire personnel will staff checkpoints around the Rose Bowl

to search for and seize any fireworks. Parking enforcement officers will ensure that

vehicles illegally parked in Pasadena’s hillside areas on July 4 are impounded.

PINK POLICE

LA County Police Chiefs’ Association kicks off Pink

Patch Project for breast cancer awareness

The Los Angeles County Police Chiefs’ Association

(LACPCA) and public safety agencies across the nation

have kicked off their 2019 Pink Patch Project. Pasadena

Police Chief John Perez emceed the opening press

conference Tuesday.

The Pink Patch Project is aims to increase public

awareness about breast cancer and to raise funds for

the fight against the disease. It is a collaborative effort

between the LACPCA and over 390 public safety agencies throughout the United States,

with the program centering on vibrant pink versions of the agency’s uniform patches.

Employees from the participating agencies will be wearing the pink patches on their

uniforms during Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October. As part of this program,

participating agencies are selling their commemorative pink patches to the community,

along with T-shirts, challenge coins and other commemorative items.

South Pas Library Director Steve Fjeldsted retires

with ‘End of the Beginning’ comedy night

The South Pasadena Public Library and the

Friends of the South Pasadena Public Library will

present the “End of the Beginning” standup comedy

show in the Community Room on Thursday, June

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

event will transform the stately historic venue into

a comedy club filled with laughter. Doors for the allages

event will open at 6:30 p.m.

The show will conclude longtime Library

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

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

community room into a regular hotbed of artistic activity including music concerts, film

screenings with artist Q&A sessions and dramatic performances.

“South Pasadena is a highly educated, arts and cultural oriented community

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

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

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

and attract people there is to do events and I like leaving on that with smiles and

laughter.”

The Library Community Room is located at 1115 El Centro St. Refreshments will be

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

are limited. n

BETWEEN DARK AND LIGHT

ROBERTO AGUIRRE-SACASA, THE MAN WHO CREATED ‘THE CHILLING ADVENTURES OF

SABRINA’ AND RETOOLED ARCHIE COMICS, BRINGS ‘GOOD BOYS’ TO PASADENA PLAYHOUSE

BY CARL KOZLOWSKI

As the creator of the hit CW network series “Riverdale” and the Netflix

series “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina,” Roberto Aguirre-

Sacasa has reinvented the world of the long-running Archie comics

to create dazzlingly original shows that have ascended to be two of the

top five most popular programs on the planet right now. As a result,

he recently scored an $80 million production deal to create even more

series.

Yet prior to his current TV career and status overseeing Archie

Comics’ TV and movie projects, Aguirre-Sacasa was an acclaimed playwright

as well. In 2003, he wrote a play called “Good Boys and True,”

about Brandon Hardy, a golden boy senior at St. Joseph’s Prep who is

accused of being in a kinky sex tape. The accusation could shatter everything

he’s worked for and his family reputation, and Brandon swears

he’s not the boy in it — and the play follows him and his mother as they

pull out all the stops to clear his name, which leads to the unearthing of

shocking secrets that affect the entire school and their town.

Aguirre-Sacasa decided to use his newfound TV success to revive

the passion project play, and is mounting it as “Good Boys” at the Pasadena

Playhouse from Wednesday through July 21.

Speaking recently with the Pasadena Weekly, he shared the surprising

inspiration for the play, how it’s more relevant than ever now in the

#Metoo era and addressed the responsibility that comes with creating

shows for impressionable young minds.

Pasadena Weekly: What was the genesis of the play and how did

you decide to revive it now?

Aguirre-Sacasa: I wrote the first draft 15 years ago. It’s a play that’s

set in a prep school, with its golden boy star athlete with great grades

who’s president of his class and finds himself accused of a scandal. A

videotape has been found of someone who looks like him having sex

with a girl who goes to a public school, and the play’s sort of a mystery:

Did this boy do it or not? Is he the guy on the tape? And the further mystery

— if it was him, why was it him? It’s sort of about the boy and his

mother having a huge reckoning about responsibility, morality and what

constitutes acceptable and not acceptable behavior. It’s a prep school

play like “Dead Poet’s Society” or “School Ties,” and a thriller about a

mother trying to defend her son. I wrote it 15 years ago, and it has had

productions, but it’s very rare for everything to come together and work

perfectly. I started talking to [Playhouse artistic director] Danny Feldman

after the Kavanaugh hearings, and said I want to do a little more

PW OPINION PW NEWS PW LIFE PW ARTS

PHOTO: Jenny Graham

Ben Ahlers and Betsy Brandt in Good Boys

work on it, but he loved it and that led it to the

Pasadena Playhouse.

Did this play come to you out of some sort

of personal experience?

I went to an all-boys prep school just outside

of DC where I grew up, but I never experienced

anything like what is in the play. What

started me writing about this was the Duke

lacrosse scandal, where the team had a party

where things got extremely questionable and

accusations were flying. I want to say it was

just about that, but these kinds of scandals are

happening with alarming frequency. I wanted

to write about my high school experience and

sort of combined the two. On one hand it’s

very personal about my time there, and on the

other it’s about the phenomenon of young men

behaving poorly in the rarefied atmosphere of

prep school, which has always been a hothouse

of testosterone, privilege and insecurity. So it’s

both personal and in response to something

that happens all too often. The Duke players,

as far as I know, were totally exonerated, but

the culture that enables it was put on trial, and

that’s in the play too.

How were the current rewrites impacted

by #METoo?

The play is a period piece, set in 1989. Even

the language we talk about — me too, toxic

masculinity, check your privilege — these

phrases didn’t exist back then. They were

things you didn’t talk about or question and

it’s unchecked. In that way it’s a period piece,

very much an old boys’ locker room mentality,

and not many people are challenging it. The

main character, the mother, is challenging it

but she’s very much a lone wolf on this. It’s not

the revolution it is now. In the play she’s on her

own, navigating these uncharted waters. She’s

never been inside the gymnasium, locker room,

coach’s office. In the play her husband always

handled this, and he’s now out of town on a trip

so she’s forced to get involved. Part of the challenge

is asking is it possible to indict an entire

system when it should be done on a case by

case basis? The mother tries to blame the culture,

saying, ‘My son wouldn’t have done this if

not for the culture.’ The coach says, ‘Don’t kid

yourself, there are a lot of kids in this culture

who haven’t done anything remotely like what

your son has been accused of doing.’ I agree

there’s nothing more pressing and demanding

to do than to look at the cases individually and

judge as individuals.

“Riverdale” sparked some controversy

by having occasionally racy sexual scenes

between its teenage characters, and “Sabrina”

was accused by some for depicting a

teenage witch deciding whether to follow her

family’s bloodline into working with Satan.

Yet “Riverdale” is extremely anti-drug and

has basically good kids fighting evil, while

“Sabrina,” in its final episode thus far, shows

her unequivocally acting against Satan and

picking good over evil as well. What do you

have to say to your critics?

It’s funny, I was raised Catholic, and I love

scary movies like “The Omen,” “Rosemary’s

Baby” and “The Exorcist.” In many ways, “Sabrina”

is much more wholesome and innocent

than “Riverdale.” The kids feel like real teenagers,

and I think the show needed that innocence

and optimism to balance out the darker

elements. If the teens were older and more

sexually active like they are on “Riverdale,”

you wouldn’t get the delicious contradiction of

Sabrina, a young woman of 16 facing down the

Dark Lord. It’s also about her family and always

defending the underdog and her friends, so it’s

hard to ignore that. You can find reason to be

offended by anything, but when you really look

at Sabrina it’s so clear that this isn’t reality, that

she and her family love each other, and they

fight for good even if they were raised to say

‘Hail Satan.’ If you’re looking for a cause to be

offended, you will find it. But that’s not what

the show is about. It’s really about a kid finding

their place in the world.

To me the difference is the kids are in

committed relationships in “Riverdale,” and

hooking up is not a constant focus of the

show. And you fight drugs with Archie. On

“Euphoria,” there’s constant drugs, teen date

rape, and a trans kid gets raped by a man.

Its creator laughs, saying they’re making the

most messed up show imaginable to freak out

parents. Where do you draw the line or feel

responsibility?

I saw “Euphoria” when it premiered and I

really, really enjoyed it and I thought going in

it might be really nihilistic and I don’t want to

see teenagers suffering. But I really enjoyed it,

thought it well done and was captivated by it

and the kids on the show. But “Riverdale” is so

different from it. We’re so far from reality. It’s

so heightened, we often get criticized because

our kids are never in school — they’re running

clubs, owning restaurants and solving murders.

It’s escapism. I think every artist draws the

line with what they want to explore, depict and

show. We’ve kind of gone there, we had one

episode where Cheryl Blossom was slipped

a mickey and was going to be date raped but

the Pussycats showed up and beat the tar out

of them. You have to decide what you want to

put out there and what you want to say, but I’ve

always been more interested in escapism and

genre, crime and pulp. n

exhausted.” “I can’t stay

focused.” “It feels like a

“I’m

sledgehammer’s pounding

me in the ground every day.”

I’ve heard and seen such comments

in so many places, I’ve lost

track of their frequency — every

day, it feels like. No doubt you

have heard and seen them too.

New variations on those themes

circulate with each fresh round

of norm-rocking headlines, and

the cumulative effect of constant

chaos will not be ignored. This is

not normal; this is not in the same

area code as normalcy. This is not

on the grid. This is not even sane.

As a child in my grandparents’

home, I’d listen to my granddad

play piano and sing in his

hearty, ringing bass tones, and

that would dispel whatever was

disquieting my little girl mind.

As I grew older, I found solace in

singing and jamming with friends.

Music remains a steadying compass

point in life, as it does for

many of us. In times of trouble,

there’s cathartic healing to be

found in gathering with the clan

to raise voices together, or just

share songs and stories that reestablish

our communal horizon

line and understanding. Fearsome

warlords throughout the

centuries have recognized this,

engaging troubadours, dancers,

poets and playwrights to bond

their community and keep their

torments at bay.

So a ticket to respite is

promised by a night of old friends

sharing songs and stories. This

Saturday, that is precisely what

Katy Moffatt, Mike Fleming, and

Tom Corbett will be doing at Coffee

Gallery Backstage. Granted,

hearing Corbett cheerfully promise,

“I’m gonna take you fishing,

honey/ You’re gonna love it” over

a chunky bluegrass mandolin riff

is lightyears from medieval troubadours

fawning over royals with

ballads of courtly love, but times

change, right? Hear, hear, and hallelujah

for silly stuff too.

All three artists are familiar

to local audiences, having

performed numerous acoustic

concerts in Pasadena-area

venues over the years. Moffatt

achieved renown in folk and

country circles beginning in the

1970s, garnering acclaim for her

full-throated, emotional vocal

style and tasteful albums such

as 1993’s Tom Russell-produced

“The Greatest Show on Earth”

(aka “The Evangeline Hotel”)

and 1999’s Dave Alvin-produced

“Loose Diamond.” Fleming is perhaps

best known as one-third of

entertaining bluegrass-cowboygypsy

jazz trio New West, winning

awards for his songwriting

and high regard for his onstage

warmth and smooth harmonies.

Corbett’s a remarkable musician

and generous spirit onstage and

off, as comfortable accompanying

guitar and mandolin students

at the Topanga Banjo Fiddle

Festival as he is fronting his own

shows or backing the likes of

John McEuen.

Circle it on your calendar. I’ll

see ya there. n

RHYE, Spirit (Loma Vista): HHH

R&B keyboardist/producer Mike Milosh slows down

the BPMs for eight songs about loving his woman

and his baby grand piano, on which he composed

spare music that’s all about connection, rather than

challenge. The vibe is contemplative and seriously

chill, with Milosh’s romantic sighs and yearning,

minor-key melodies going down as easily as a

glass of pinot noir at sunset. Highlights include

“Patience,” its harmonic elegance heightened by a

guest turn from Icelandic pianist/composer Ólafur

Arnalds; the hypnotic “Needed”; and the sweet,

slow-building “Save Me.” Opening for Leon Bridges

at Hollywood Bowl July 5. rhyemusic.com

CHIP & TONY KINMAN, Sounds Like Music

(Omnivore): HHHH

We lost a good man and musician when Tony

Kinman died last year. The lanky bassist’s deep

baritone and reserve played ying to brother Chip’s

wisecracking tenor yang, a dynamic that brightens

this gratifying compilation of 22 previously

unreleased tracks (including four with Alejandro

Escovedo) by cowpunk trailblazers Rank and File,

SoCal punkers the Dils, the underrated Cowboy

Nation, and category-defying Blackbird. Surprises

include an ethereal “Old Paint,” a snarling alternate

take on “Rank and File,” and a sweetly sung,

requiem-like version of Tom Waits’ “Jersey Girl.”

PAST ACTION HEROES ROCK T. BOYLES

CATCH A GROUP THAT IS SERIOUSLY FUNNY AND SIMULTANEOUSLY A SERIOUS MUSICAL ACT WHEN PAST ACTION

HEROES TAKES THE STAGE AT T. BOYLE’S TAVERN FRIDAY NIGHT.

To the uninitiated, the band dresses in costumes reminiscent of TV action series heroes of the 1980s and ’90s, such as

“MacGyver,” Michael Knight of “Night Rider,” “Magnum P.I” and various other icons.

The show consists of hit music from the decades of Reagan and Clinton, and they totally rock in the process. Past

Action Heroes’ musical renditions are spot-on, and the band’s musicianship is arena-worthy. This is serious music, performed

with a wink and a smile, offering a humorous take on the era.

They’ve performed shows at clubs all around the area, as well as Santa Anita Park, and they’re a popular call for events

like weddings and parties. Their past client endorsements glow with praise.

Check them out at pastactionheroes.com. — John Sollenberger

Music starts at 10 p.m. Friday at T.Boyle’s Tavern, 37 N. Catalina Ave., in Rhodes Alley between Catalina and Mentor avenues.

Admission is $5. Call (626) 578-0957 or visit tboylestavern.com.

‘DAMES AT SEA’ BRINGS NOSTALGIC SUMMER FUN TO SIERRA MADRE PLAYHOUSE

The Sierra Madre Playhouse is beloved

for producing enjoyable plays gilded

in the charm of a small-town vibe. But

it originated as a movie theater for the

bucolic burg of roughly 11,000 citizens

— a town so small that it still has only

one stoplight — and this summer its

programmers are weaving together

both aspects of its rich cultural history

by presenting the old-school musical

“Dames at Sea” as well as a series of

classic movies that inspired the style of

“Dames” on Wednesday nights.

“Dames” follows the story of Ruby,

an actress who hits the stage as a chorus

girl but might wind up a star, in a

musical comedy that is also a hilarious

homage to the glamorous and hopeful

musicals of the 1930s. According to

director Joshua Finkel, the combination

is bringing a full slate of summer fun to

the theater’s small but hallowed stage

as it runs through July 21.

“It’s going really, really well,” says

Finkel, who is making his Playhouse

debut with the production “What drew

us to the show is it’s small and works

for the kind of space we have. Part of

BY CARL KOZLOWSKI

the creator’s message in the forward of

the libretto says ‘think of this as Busby

Berkeley but on a postage stamp.’ Part

of the satire is to create the same effect

of having thousands of people onstage

with just six.

“It’s a tipping of the hat to movie

musicals of the 1930s, and extremely

American,” he continues. “Christian

Lebano, the Playhouse’s artistic

director, wants American theater by

American playwrights and that’s his

mission. It’s uniquely American, and

what’s really cool is that they’re screening

a movie series Wednesday nights

of the movies ‘Dames’ is based on:

‘42nd Street,’ ‘Gold Diggers of 1933’

and ‘Footlight Parade,’ plus ‘Yankee

Doodle Dandy.’”

“Yankee Doodle Dandy” will screen

at 8 p.m. July 3, while “Footlight Parade”

follows at 8 p.m. July 10. “42nd

Street” closes out the series at 8 p.m.

July 17, with tickets to all three screenings

available for $10 per movie.

Finkel notes that all those films had

the same basic cast or filmmakers, with

stars like Ruby Keeler, Guy Blondell and

James Cagney playing archetypes in

archetypal plots. “Dames” is a takeoff

of that style, as it “takes the stakes to

crazy ridiculous situations the entire

show, over one crazy long day of

opening a Broadway show at the Hippodrome

in the 1930s.”

“The Works Progress Administration

is moving in to demolish the theater

because the producer couldn’t pay

the bills after 12 flops in a row, so at

the end of act one, the theater is demolished

while they’re singing ‘Good Times

are Here to Stay,’” laughs Finkel, who

met Lebano when they were students

in the theater program of the University

of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. “The second

act is on a ship after they’ve moved the

show there, which is ridiculous that

they could move the locations and write

a whole new score for it in just one day.

This is truly screwball level comedy.” n

“Dames at Sea” runs through July 21 at the

Sierra Madre Playhouse, 87 W. Sierra Madre

Blvd., Sierra Madre. Tickets are $25 to $45.

PW OPINION PW NEWS PW LIFE PW ARTS

•FILM•

BY CARL KOZLOWSKI

You probably can’t go to any civilized place on the planet without

hearing the music of The Beatles on a daily basis. Their music

has dominated the pop culture landscape for well over 50 years,

with 27 No. 1 singles in the US alone, and well over 100 million albums

sold.

But in “Yesterday” — the latest film from Danny Boyle, perhaps

the most eclectic director working today (“Slumdog Millionaire,” “127

Hours,” “Trainspotting”)— a struggling young musician named Jack

(Himesh Patel ) is ready to give up on his ambitions after a disastrous

appearance at a music festival. His longtime friend and manager Ellie

(Lily James) is heartbroken by his decision, and tries to convince him

that a miracle might be just around the corner.

It turns out that she’s remarkably prescient, for while Jack rides his

bike home that night, a worldwide power outage occurs for 12 seconds

and he’s hit by a bus in the darkness. When he awakens in a hospital

with his two front teeth missing, he also finds that no one around him

knows who The Beatles are or recognizes any of their songs.

Searching the Internet, he finds that there are literally no references

to The Beatles, and his record collection is devoid of their albums

as well. The Rolling Stones exist, but the Beatles-derivative band

Oasis has also been wiped off the planet’s collective consciousness.

Jack sees a golden opportunity in all of this, and proceeds to play from

memory and record as many of the Fab Four’s tunes as he can, claiming

the songs as his own.

He immediately finds himself on a rocket ride to fame, as presentday

superstar Ed Sheeran (playing himself with comic aplomb) sees

him on a local TV show and hires him as his opening act on tour. But

when Jack starts getting more fan mania than Ed himself and Ed’s

comically ruthless manager (Kate McKinnon) pushes to make him the

biggest artist of all time, things start to get complicated on both his

professional front and his relationship with Ellie.

“Yesterday” is a terrifically good time at the movies, with Boyle

deftly handling the fantasy, comedy and romantic elements with total

grace. Patel’s performance as Jack should be an instant star-maker for

the actor, who has previously only worked in British television but has

a magnetic ability to earn empathy for a character that might have just

Missing Music

DANNY BOYLE’S COMIC MUSICAL FANTASY ‘YESTERDAY’

IMAGINES A WORLD WITHOUT THE BEATLES

seemed like a selfish con artist in the hands of most actors.

As Ellie, James is clearly channeling a young Keira Knightley with

irresistible winsomeness, but the world needs more of that kind of

delightful charm, especially when Knightley has matured into more

complex roles. Sheeran brings surprising comical zing to his part, as

he is increasingly baffled by Jack’s inexplicable ability to craft timeless

classics like “The Long and Winding Road” in a bar bet on who can

compose the best song within ten minutes. McKinnon brings a zesty

sense of comic ruthlessness and greed to the table, delivering some of

the funniest moments.

The screenplay by Richard Curtis— the mastermind of rom-com

classics “Four Weddings and a Funeral,” “Notting Hill” and “Love Actually”—

stands up to that prior wonderful trio, grounding everything in

relatable characters and, of course, ample opportunities to hear the

greatest pop songs ever through the fresh voice and adaptations of Jack.

Curtis layers in some intriguing moral quandaries as well, as Jack

lives in constant fear of someone catching on to his ruse, or the world

suddenly remembering The Beatles again. Nearly everyone has faced

a moment in life where they could get away with a scam or a shortcut

that is highly questionable, and the way that Jack faces his is both

moving and entertaining.

The film also provides some thoughtful insights into the creative

process of great songwriting, as Jack and his producers put their own

fresh tweaks on the tunes, turning “Help” into a revved-up rocker that

sounds like a Ramones tune, for instance. And when Jack realizes he’s

going to face questions about what inspired each song, he heads to key

places like Liverpool to try and get his own understanding of places

like Penny Lane and Eleanor Rigby’s grave.

But the most fascinating part of this unexpected charmer is being

forced to consider what would happen if the whole world was deprived

of The Beatles’ joyous music. “Yesterday” makes you appreciate the

magical soundtrack their music has played in all our lives since the

early 1960s, and will hopefully continue to color our lives for generations

to come. n

“YESTERDAY”: A

Himesh Patel in “Yesterday“

CAPSULE REVIEWS

BY CARL KOZLOWSKI

LATE NIGHT

Stars: Emma Thompson, Mindy Kaling

Length: 102 minutes

Directed by: Nisha Ganatra

Rating: R

This sharp yet relatable comedy follows what

happens when a late-night host about to be

put out to pasture (Thompson) hires a young

superfan who appears to be just an unqualified

diversity hire (Kaling) but winds up helping the

host get her creative and fighting spirit back.

Wise and witty, it has characters to root for and

a refreshing can-do spirit that's inspirational.

Grade: A

THE LAST BLACK MAN IN

SAN FRANCISCO

Stars: Jimmie Fails,. Jonathan Majors

Length: 121 minutes

Directed by: Joe Talbot

Rating: R

A stunning acting debut by Fails, who also cowrote

with director Talbot based on his own life

story, this movie is a visually poetic ode to the

title city as Fails breaks into and squats in the

remarkable house he grew up in while the city

changes around him unrecognizably. On every

level, this is a unique artistic statement that

recalls the earliest attention-getting works of

Spike Lee at his best. Grade: A

ROCKETMAN

Stars: Taron Egerton, Jamie Bell

Length: 121 minutes

Directed by: Dexter Fletcher

Rating: R

This outstanding biopic of Elton John takes

a different approach to telling a music

legend's life story than last year's "Bohemian

Rhapsody," using elaborate fantasy song

and dance numbers that make this feel like a

spectacular Broadway show, while also telling

a more emotional tale of the rough road to selfacceptance.

Grade: A

MA

Stars: Octavia Spencer, Diana Silvers,

Juliette Lewis

Length: 99 minutes

Directed by: Tate Taylor

Rating: R

The latest comedic horror film from the usually

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

Oscar-winner Octavia Spencer as a mysterious

small-town woman who invites teens to party

in her house on the edge of town, but turns

out to have malevolent intentions. The first

half is pretty fun, but the last half hour’s logic

collapses and the film becomes an ugly mess.

Grade: D

JOHN WICK 3:

PARABELLUM

Stars: Keanu Reeves

Length: 131 minutes

Directed by: Chad Stahelski

Rating: R

The third time’s the charm, as Reeves returns

as the world’s greatest hitman, dashing across

New York while fighting off seemingly hundreds

of assassins eager to take him down for a

$14 million bounty. You really don’t even have

to know the prior two films in the series to

understand this – the movie has nearly wall

to wall, brutal but nonetheless funny action.

Grade: A

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you

are considering bidding on this property

lien, you should understand that there are

risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction.

You will be bidding on a lien, not on

the property itself. Placing the highest bid

at a trustee auction does not automatically

entitle you to free and clear ownership of

the property. You should also be aware

that the lien being auctioned off may be

a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder

at the auction, you are or may be responsible

for paying off all liens senior to the

lien being auctioned off, before you can

receive clear title to the property. You are

encouraged to investigate the existence,

priority, and size of outstanding liens that

may exist on this property by contacting

the county recorder’s office or a title insurance

company, either of which may charge

you a fee for this information. If you consult

either of these resources, you should be

aware that the same lender may hold more

than one mortgage or deed of trust on the

property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER:

The sale date shown on this notice of sale

may be postponed one or more times by

the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a

court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the

California Civil Code. The law requires that

information about trustee sale postponements

be made available to you and to the

public, as a courtesy to those not present at

the sale. If you wish to learn whether your

sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable,

the rescheduled time and date for

the sale of this property, you may call 916-

939-0772 for information regarding the

trustee’s sale or visit this Internet Web site

http://www.qualityloan.com, using the file

number assigned to this foreclosure by the

Trustee: CA-14-650064-RY. Information

about postponements that are very short in

duration or that occur close in time to the

scheduled sale may not immediately be

reflected in the telephone information or on

the Internet Web site. The best way to verify

postponement information is to attend the

scheduled sale. The undersigned Trustee

disclaims any liability for any incorrectness

of the property address or other common

designation, if any, shown herein. If no

street address or other common designation

is shown, directions to the location of

the property may be obtained by sending a

written request to the beneficiary within 10

days of the date of first publication of this

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

reason, including if the Trustee is unable to

convey title, the Purchaser at the sale shall

be entitled only to a return of the monies

paid to the Trustee. This shall be the Purchaser’s

sole and exclusive remedy. The

purchaser shall have no further recourse

against the Trustor, the Trustee, the Beneficiary,

the Beneficiary’s Agent, or the Beneficiary’s

Attorney. If you have previously

been discharged through bankruptcy,

you may have been released of personal

liability for this loan in which case this

letter is intended to exercise the note holders

described is being sold “as is”. The street

address and other common designation, if

any, of the real property described above is

purported to be: 559-561 E. CALIFORNIA

BLVD., PASADENA, CA 91106. The undersigned

Trustee disclaims any liability

for any incorrectness of the street address

and other common designation, if any,

shown herein. Said sale will be made, but

without covenant or warranty, expressed or

implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances,

to pay the remaining principal

sum of the note(s) secured by said Deed

of Trust, with interest thereon, as provided

in said note(s), advances, if any, under the

terms of the Deed of Trust, estimated fees,

charges and expenses of the Trustee and

of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust,

to-wit: $102,182.89 (Estimated). Accrued

interest and additional advances, if any, will

increase this figure prior to sale. The Beneficiary

may elect to bid less than the full

credit bid. The beneficiary under said Deed

of Trust heretofore executed and delivered

to the undersigned a written Declaration of

Default and Demand for Sale, and a written

Notice of Default and Election to Sell. The

undersigned caused said Notice of Default

and Election to Sell to be recorded in the

county where the real property is located

and more than three months have elapsed

since such recordation. If the Trustee is unable

to convey title for any reason, the successful

bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy

shall be the return of monies paid to the

Trustee, and the successful bidder shall

have no further recourse. NOTICE TO PO-

TENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering

bidding on this property lien, you should

understand that there are risks involved

in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be

bidding on a lien, not on the property itself.

Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction

does not automatically entitle you to free

and clear ownership of the property. You

should also be aware that the lien being

auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are

the highest bidder at the auction, you are or

may be responsible for paying off all liens

senior to the lien being auctioned off, before

you can receive clear title to the property.

You are encouraged to investigate the

existence, priority, and size of outstanding

liens that may exist on this property by

contacting the county recorder’s office or

a title insurance company, either of which

may charge you a fee for this information.

If you consult either of these resources,

you should be aware that the same lender

may hold more than one mortgage or deed

of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROP-

ERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this

notice of sale may be postponed one or

more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary,

trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section

2924g of the California Civil Code. The

law requires that information about trustee

sale postponements be made available

to you and to the public, as a courtesy to

those not present at the sale. If you wish to

learn whether your sale date has been postponed,

and, if applicable, the rescheduled

time and date for the sale of this property,

you may call 916-939-0772 or visit this

case 130637-5. Information about postponements

that are very short in duration

or that occur close in time to the scheduled

sale may not immediately be reflected in

the telephone information or on the Internet

Web site. The best way to verify postponement

information is to attend the scheduled

sale. Date: 06/05/2019 MORTGAGE
