POLITICIANS & WAR

With every passing year,

politicians grow more confident

in their ability to thrust

Americans into another war,

to make decisions that benefit

themselves and not their constituents,

and to increase their

profits as the average American

can hardly scrape by.

Few politicians take a stand

against this, to what has become

the norm, and when they

do, the mainstream media will

either smear them or not cover

them at all. It takes a soldierpresident

to reverse this

course. Fortunately, we have

such a candidate right now.

Committee to endorse Bernie

Democrats and the mainstream

media made an orchestrated

attempt to push their candidate

of choice, Hillary Clinton. It

would seem history repeats

itself. CNN has already effectively

endorsed Kamala Harris,

providing her with favorable

coverage and a primetime town

hall event.

Over the years I’ve learned

it’s best to first follow the

money. Harris’ largest donor

is Warner Media Group, the

parent company of CNN. Tulsi

Gabbard is a unique 2020 presidential

candidate who is not

taking corporate PAC money to

fund her campaign. That means

all of her funding must come

from the people.

I was 11 years old when

John F. Kennedy delivered his

inaugural address. His speech

had a profound impact on my

life when several years later

I would volunteer to join the

Marine Corps. Gabbard turned

to those inspiring words when

she said this: “I ask you to join

me, in this spirit of putting

service before self, to stand up

against the forces of greed and

corruption. Kennedy once said,

‘Ask not what your country can

do for you, but what you can do

for your country.’ We must heed

his call to action today, at this

critical time in our history. We

must stand up and fight for the

soul of our country.”

It is clear that we, as a nation,

have forgotten the core

principles of what America was

meant to be. Gabbard’s words

and deeds as a soldier and

elected representative offer a

glimmer of hope that she might

be the right leader to help us all

rediscover what it means to be

an American.

“When we raise our right

hand and volunteer to serve, we

set aside our own interests to

serve our country, to fight for

all Americans. It is this principle

of service above self, that

is at the heart of every soldier.

At the heart of every service

member.” She continued, “I will

bring this soldier’s principles

•GUEST OPINION•

BY EARL OFARI HUTCHINSON

WEAPONS OF CHOICE

WOULD IMPEACHMENT HELP RE-ELECT PRESIDENT TRUMP?

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi seems to be of two

minds.

Pelosi has repeatedly said no to the idea

of impeaching President Trump. She gravely

warns that Trump is goading the opposition into

impeaching him because he sees this as his ticket

back to the White House in 2020. Impeachment,

he believes, will fire up his base by allowing him

to go into full-blown victim mode.

But Pelosi then pivots and says that Trump

must be held accountable. That seems to imply

that impeachment is still on her agenda.

The question that Pelosi correctly zeroes

in on as other Democrats hound her to get the

Nancy Pelosi

impeachment show on the road is this: Will a

House impeachment gambit help or hurt Trump

more than it helps or hurts the Democrats?

Polls show that, much like the House of Representatives itself, there are a lot

of people who believe impeachment is a bad idea for Democrats. Polls also show

that independents, who will be a big factor in the presidential election, also don’t

really like the idea, even though a lot of them don’t like Trump.

Trump can take his cues from what happened with President Bill Clinton.

Clinton was impeached by the then-GOP-controlled House, but the then-

Democrat-controlled Senate didn’t convict, and Clinton’s popularity numbers

soared. If Clinton could have run for a third term in 2000 he almost certainly

would have been re-elected.

The issue must be framed this way for two practical reasons. One,

impeachment will be almost exclusively a Democratic show in the House, since

almost no House Republicans would ever back the effort. The other reason is

that the GOP-controlled Senate would never vote to convict. So, if it’s a strictly

partisan effort, it comes off as nothing more than a political stunt, or at best an

empty gesture done purely to satisfy progressive Democrats.

But what about the Democrats who hail from districts populated by anything

but progressives? More than a handful of new House Democrats come from those

districts, which are full of Republicans, independents, and centrist Democrats

who want nothing to do with an impeachment move by their representatives.

Such a battle would cause undue strain and give the GOP an opening to take

back some of the seats they lost in 2018.

However, here’s the reason why Pelosi is walking a tightrope on impeachment.

A compelling case can be made that going after Trump with impeachment will

energize Democrats. But would it actually do that? This is not a small concern,

given that the Democratic presidential candidate field is way overloaded, with

all of them struggling to find a unifying message that will stir enough Democrats

to storm the polls in 2020. Is impeachment, with Democrats showing they aren’t

afraid to fight for a principle despite the risks, that message?

Pro-impeachment Democrats got a big boost when Special Counsel Robert

Mueller implied that Trump had committed crimes, and that if not for the legal

constraints of going after a sitting president he could have been indicted. Mueller

punted but in the process practically invited Congress to go after Trump through

the only means at its disposal, and that’s impeachment. At least, that’s the way

a lot of Democrats are reading Mueller’s report, Pelosi among them. This is

what’s behind her saying that he must be held accountable. But does being held

accountable mean impeachment?

The best bet for Democrats is booting Trump out of the White House at the

polls. It won’t be easy. He will have a united GOP behind him, a king’s ransom

in campaign cash, the fawning attention of mainstream media, his Twitter bully

pulpit, and the appearance of a bustling economy to crow about. The worst thing

to do now is to give him yet another weapon. Clearly Trump sees impeachment

as that weapon. Many Democrats don’t. But if they’re wrong, it will help re-elect

him. ■

JUSTICE IN NUMBERS

HIGH COURT BARS CITIZENSHIP QUESTION FROM APPEARING ON US CENSUS FORMS

BY ANDRÉ COLEMAN

The US Supreme Court ruled last week that the Trump administration

cannot include a question about citizenship on the

2020 US Census form — for now.

The controversy surrounds the administration’s plans to

include the question, “Is this person a citizen of the United

States?”

Critics claim including the question could keep Latinos and

other minorities from filling out the census, resulting in urban

communities losing millions of dollars in federal funds and

congressional seats.

In a 5-4 ruling made along partisan lines, the deeply divided

court ruled that while the government has the right to ask a

citizenship question, it needs to justify its inclusion in the census.

Siding with the court’s four liberal justices, Chief Justice John

Roberts said that there was sufficient reason for concern about

why the US Commerce Department wanted to add the question.

“The sole stated reason seems to have been contrived,”

Roberts wrote for the majority. “We are presented, in other words,

with an explanation for agency action that is incongruent with

what the record reveals about the agency’s priorities and decision

making process.”

The Trump administration has claimed that the question was

added to collect more detailed citizenship data to better enforce

part of the Voting Rights Act.

After the June 27 ruling, President Trump called for a delay to

the census until his lawyers could get more information about the

question for future court proceedings.

“Can anyone really believe that as a great country, we are not

MAN OF HIS TIMES

US DISTRICT JUDGE MANUEL

REAL, WHO ORDERED BUSING

IN PASADENA SCHOOLS IN

1970, DIES AT AGE 95

The day before US Sen.

Kamala Harris slammed

former Vice President

Joe Biden in the Democratic

presidential debate

for his past positions

against busing, US Central

District Senior Judge

Manuel L. Real, the man Manuel Real

who forced the Pasadena

Unified School District to implement busing,

died at age 95.

A cause of death was not immediately

known. No memorial plans have been announced.

Real’s controversial ruling was decided by

the US Supreme Court and eventually came to

define actions taken by school districts all over

California in efforts to address a racial exclusion

crisis occurring in public schools.

“I am sad beyond words at the death of our

beloved friend, colleague, mentor and leader,”

said US Central Court Chief Judge Virginia A.

Phillips in a prepared statement.

“Judge Real has been the heart and soul of

our district since it was formed in 1966 and his

passing leaves an unfillable void for us, his family,

the legal world and the larger community,”

Phillips wrote. “His legacy of public service is an

inspiration beyond compare.”

On Jan. 20, 1970, Real ruled that the

Pasadena Unified School District could not

discriminate based on race and ordered that,

“Commencing in September of 1970, there shall

be no school in the District elementary or junior

high or senior high school, with a majority of

any minority students.”

The ruling came in response to a lawsuit

filed by local residents Jim and Bobbie Spangler,

Wilton and Dorothy Clarke and Skipper and

Pat Rostker.

According to a 2007 article written by PW

Editor Kevin Uhrich, racial issues in Pasadena

went beyond segregation. The American Nazi

Party had set up shop in nearby El Monte and

the Southern-based White Citizens Council, a

group whose members belonged to the Ku Klux

Klan, tried to establish a foothold in Pasadena.

In 1968 — the year that both Martin Luther

King Jr. and Bobby Kennedy were assassinated

— the Spanglers, along with the Rostkers and

Clarkes, filed the federal lawsuit.

ONE MORE STEP

CITY REACHES PENULTIMATE STAGE

OF MINIMUM RAISE INCREASE

BY ANDRÉ COLEMAN

Pasadena’s minimum wage increased to $14.25 on Sunday,

but local officials and business owners remain deeply divided

on the impact of the city’s minimum wage.

Some business owners claim the increases have had

significant negative impacts on employment opportunities for

people at the lower end of the pay scale.

According to Pasadena Chamber of Commerce CEO Paul Little, fewer business

owners are hiring teenagers during the summer due to the wage increase. Increasing

the minimum wage was opposed by members of the chamber, who favored smaller

pay hikes. Under that proposal, minimum wage would have increased to $12.50 by

2020, and then stopped there.

“Those who hire minimum-wage workers have cut back on hiring, reduced their

workforce and demanded a higher level of skill and experience from people who are

hired,” Little told the Pasadena Weekly. “We are also likely to see more places close as

profitability becomes more and more difficult.”

But Jon Pollard, Pasadena’s code compliance manager, who visits hundreds of

Pasadena businesses every year, said so far he has not seen much negative impact.

“I don’t think the city would say there have been any negative impacts based on the

minimum wage increase,” Pollard said. “This is just me speaking, but I think it would

be very hard to parse the reason for a business closing. Restaurants have a famously

high closure rate in the first year.”

In February, the Pasadena City Council reviewed the impacts of the minimum

wage increases on reducing poverty, unemployment, job creation, and the overall

business climate and voted to increase it to $14.25 this year and $15 in 2020.

Beginning July 1, 2022 the local hourly wage will be adjusted annually by an

amount equal to the expected increase in the Los Angeles-Riverside-Orange County

consumer price index for urban wage earners and clerical workers.

But even at $15 an hour, it’s almost impossible for single minimum wage earners to

live in Pasadena.

The average rent for a one-bedroom apartment in Pasadena has risen more than

51.7 percent in the past six years, with rents on some one-bedroom apartments

totaling well over $2,000 a month. n

BREEDERS’ CUP OFFICIALS VOTE

TO KEEP RACE AT SANTA ANITA

DESPITE FATALITIES

BY ANDRÉ COLEMAN

Paul Little

Despite injuries that have forced Santa Anita Park officials to

Craig Fravel

euthanize 30 horses since December, Breeders’ Cup board

members said they would not move the race to Churchill Downs in Kentucky.

The announcement came after the Breeders’ Cup’s 14-member board unanimously

voted to keep its Nov. 1-2 championship races at the Arcadia racetrack.

“Foremost among the core values of the Breeders’ Cup are the safety and integrity

of the competition and we hold ourselves, our host sites and our competitors to the

highest standards of both,” Craig Fravel, president and CEO of the Breeders’ Cup, said

in a prepared statement. “It is clear that meaningful and effective reforms and best

practices have been implemented in recent months at Santa Anita through the collective

efforts of The Stronach Group (owners of the track), the Thoroughbred Owners

of California, the California Thoroughbred Trainers, and the California Horse Racing

Board.”

Members of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) praised the decision,

primarily because more horses have died at Churchill Downs than at Santa Anita.

“Who could possibly have thought that it was a good idea to move the Breeders’

Cup from a track that is trying to stop the carnage to one with an even more shameful

record of fatalities?” said PETA Senior Vice President Kathy Guillermo. “The Breeders’

Cup board made the right decision. Now, it should disallow trainers with multiple

medication violations from all races.”

According to a report in USA Today, Churchill Downs does not publicly disclose its

racing fatalities, but a spokesman for the track confirmed figures obtained through a

public records request of the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission.

Those records show that 43 horses were euthanized due to racing injuries since

2016, a 2.42 per 1,000-start average that was 50 percent higher than the national average

during the same three-year span.

The deaths have rocked officials at Santa Anita. The park closed in March after

the 21st horse died and put new safety protocols in place, including banning race day

medication, increasing transparency of veterinary records, further regulating approval

for workouts, and increasing reviews of the track’s surface.

Some experts believe the injuries have been caused by an extra hard track created

in response to this year’s above average rainfall.

Earlier this week California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed into law a bill that gives

the the California Horse Racing Board the power to suspend racing at any time should

it see a safety issue for horses and riders. Newsom also added a veterinarian to the

board. n

able to ask whether or not someone is a citizen.

Only in America!” Trump posted on Twitter.

An undercount could be devastating for those

areas. Population counts from the 2020 census

will be used to determine how many congressional

seats and Electoral College votes each state gets

for the next decade. The data will also be used to

help distribute nearly $900 billion in federal funding

for such things as schools, roads and other public

services.

Pasadena and several other cities have been

encouraging residents to participate in the census.

Those cities have formed what are being called

Complete Count Committees (CCCs) which seek out

immigrant communities and encourage residents to

participate in the census.

Pasadena Mayor Terry Tornek, who chairs the

local CCC, told the Pasadena Weekly that he was

pleased and excited about the ruling.

“We’ve already had a couple of meetings ,”

Tornek said. “We are very concerned, because

we know we were undercounted last time. It is

much more daunting because of the climate of

fear surrounding the census. We were desperately

worried about this question. We have our hands

full already and that was going to make it more

challenging. I am excited. We allocated city funds,

and have funds coming through the county. We have

started lining up people and resources to get an

accurate count.”

Locally, the census is used to adjust and

sometimes redraw local City Council and

Pasadena Unified School District boundaries to

ensure that the city is complying with federal

voting rights laws.

“We hope the federal government avoids taking

any action that could dissuade residents from

participating in the census count and adversely

affect federal funding for vital services and

programs they rely on,” said City Manager Steve

Mermell. “City staff and community volunteers

are undertaking efforts to support the work of the

Census Bureau and achieve as accurate a count as

possible for Pasadena.”

In 1993, census data led to local political district

lines being redrawn to create a district which

increased voting opportunities for primarily Latino

residents living in an enclave which later became

District 5. This was an area of the city which the

1990 census revealed was 27 percent Latino.

“Here in our city, we have been working to

ensure that all of our residents, the youngest to the

oldest, are counted in the census, and the inclusion

of the citizenship question would have presented

a significant barrier to full participation,” said

Vannia De La Cuba, field representative for District

5 Councilman Victor Gordo. “Today’s SCOTUS

decision was an important victory for all of us. An

undercount would hurt all communities because

the census data are crucial to ensuring equitable

distribution of federal funds for a wide range of vital

programs, including many programs that provide

The case was sent back to a New York court

for further explanation from the administration,

but officials with the Census Bureau claimed they

needed to start printing the census forms by July 1.

Federal judges there and in Maryland and

California have already ruled against the

administration’s proposal.

“This is an incredibly hopeful decision,” said

Rector Mike Kinman of All Saints Church, which

has vehemently opposed Trump’s immigration

policy and vowed to open its doors as a sanctuary

for those who fear deportation during immigration

raids.

“A question has been effectively denied from

the census that would result in taxation without

representation for countless people of color, many

of whom are part of our community. At least this

morning, fear lost and justice won at the highest

court in the land.”

Kinman also pointed out that the decision in an

example of how the nation is supposed to work.

“The Judicial Branch recognized that the

Executive Branch was trying to manipulate the

Constitution for its own political ends and very

clearly called it out and denied it that chance.”

Six of the bureau’s former directors, who have

served under both Democratic and Republican

administrations, have warned that adding the

citizenship question would jeopardize the accuracy

of the population count.

The Trump administration has maintained that

the question was added to collect more detailed

citizenship data to enforce part of the Voting Rights

Act. The district court judges concluded that was

not the real reason for the administration’s lastminute

push for adding the question.

In May, the daughter of deceased Republican

operative Thomas Hofeller revealed that in 2015

Hofeller conducted a private study and concluded

that a citizenship question would decrease the

political power of Latinos and “be advantageous

to Republicans and Non-Hispanic Whites” in the

redistricting process.

Hofeller also surmised that employing

citizenship data derived from the census would

“provoke a high degree of resistance from

Democrats and the major minority groups in the

nation.”

Hofeller later urged the Trump administration

to adopt the question and worked with the

administration to help craft its public legal

argument that the Census Bureau needed

citizenship data to better enforce the Voting Rights

Act of 1965.

Federal judges in California, New York and

Maryland are aware of those documents along with

the Supreme Court, according to the New Yorker.

“If judicial review is to be more than an empty

ritual, it must demand something better than the

explanation offered for the action taken in this

case,” Chief Justice Roberts wrote. n

PASADENA CELEBRATES THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF

THE APOLLO 11 LUNAR LANDING

BY JANA J. MONJI

In July, there will be many opportunities to celebrate the 50th anniversary of

the Apollo 11 moon landing.

NASA already has program lessons posted online for young

students, some featuring that intrepid beagle Snoopy who has a long

association with NASA. Online and on TV, PBS will begin its Summer of

Space with new documentaries premiering as well as space-related encores.

Two special screenings and celebrations will also help

commemorate that one giant leap for mankind. As the NASA

logo suggests, all are looking toward the Next Giant Leap.

From July 5 to Aug. 11, the Rose Bowl will host a new 360-degree adventure,

“Apollo 11: The Immersive Live Show,” which will feature an original story performed by a

20-member ensemble inside a “Lunar Dome” containing 40,000 square feet of video projections

that take visitors from the launch of the enormous Saturn V rocket to the moon. The Apollo 11

presentation features life-sized rockets and expects to perform in 18 cities across the US for the

next three years.

For more information, visit RoseBowlStadium.com.

Beginning on Monday, PBS’s “American Experience” features the three-part series “Chasing

the Moon,” answering questions about being an astronaut. It also looks at diversity and sexism

during the days of the Apollo mission, while reminding us of the period’s tumultuous political

backdrop.

Part One, “A Place Beyond the Sky,” features CBS Evening News Anchorman Walter Cronkite

and other journalists describing how they attempted to bring what was essentially a “radio

story” of disembodied voices with no visuals to the American public. The race to beat the Russians

to the moon started under President John F. Kennedy, but Apollo 11 reached the moon

under President Richard M. Nixon.

Part Two on July 9, “Earthrise,” reveals a not-so-hidden figure, Frances “Poppy” Northcutt,

and the tale of the first African-American astronaut candidate, Ed Dwight. To get the public behind

the race to the moon, astronauts were used for public relations purposes. Although it was

20 years before an African American would make it into space, Dwight, now a sculptor, raised

the hopes of people around the world.

At 25, Northcutt, was not an astronaut, but she still gained fame as the first woman in

NASA’s flight control room.

“What I remember most about Apollo 11 is that it was so very normal,” Northcutt recalled

in a recent telephone interview. “When you’re simulating and planning for missions,

you’re dealing with things that have gone wrong. The most surprising thing about Apollo

11 was almost everything was going right.” As a contractor with TRW, Northcutt said,

“All women at the time were swimming in the sea of sexism,” and while it still exists, “it’s

“not as murky as it was then,”

Being the only woman had some advantages, Northcutt admitted.

“I got a lot of attention at the time, and even more attention now, 50 years later,” she

said.

Recently, Northcutt got a call from the Brazilian consulate in Houston, where

she lives. She left TRW in 1984 to become an attorney and a civil rights advocate.

During the Apollo missions, a little girl in Brazil was inspired by Northcutt and

eventually grew up to become Dr. Rosaly M.C. Lopes, a senior research

scientist at JPL and the editor-in-chief for the planetary science journal

Icarus.

As a pre-teen in Rio de Janeiro, “I grew up crazy about the Apollo

program,” Lopes recalled. “Being Brazilian and a girl with terrible

eyesight, I was not going to make it as an astronaut. Every time I saw

anything about the Apollo program, it was all men.”

Northcutt had helped to calculate the trajectory of the problem-

plagued Apollo 13 mission. Lopes

clipped small articles about her

appearing in two Brazilian newspapers.

“I became so inspired,”

Lopes said.

Although those articles have

long been lost, and Lopes remembers

them as being sexist, Lopes

searched for Northcutt over the

years because Northcutt was “like

a beacon.”

A casual conversation with a

writer brought the two into contact

and Northcutt will meet with

Lopes this month at JPL. Northcutt

noted one of the reasons she

left TRW was budget cuts. The

race to the moon was won, but

society had changed.

Part Three of “Chasing the

Moon,” “Magnificent Desolation,”

takes its title from Buzz Aldrin as

both his description of the lunar

surface and the title of his second

autobiography. After Apollo 11, the astronauts were no longer heroes. During his

public relations tours, Frank Borman (Apollo 8 and Gemini 7) recalled going to

Cornell campus was “like going into an enemy camp.” Protests against Vietnam

labeled [President] Nixon a war criminal, but there were also some questionable

figures working at NASA such as ex-SS officer Wernher von Braun.

While most of the action for Apollo 11 was away from the Pasadena area, JPL

did have a role leading up to the Apollo program. JPL developed two robotic series

of spacecraft: the Rangers and the Surveyors. The Rangers were like the safety

crash test part of the moon landing program. The Rangers were meant to intentionally

collide into the moon and provide images of the surface and the approaching

impact. Ranger 7 was the first to work properly, hitting the moon on July 31, 1964.

Two more would evemtually reach the moon.

The seven robotic Surveyors were “soft landers” and the first vehicles to operate

on the moon. They provided information about the strength and composition

of the lunar surface (1966-68). Apollo 12 astronauts brought back Surveyor 3’s

camera in 1969. The information from these two spacecraft series helped the Eagle

land. Once the Eagle that landed on the moon returned to Earth, Caltech raced to

analyze the lunar samples and answer questions about the moon’s composition for

scientists and researchers around the world.

JPL and Caltech will be hosting two free panels. JPL documentarian Blaine

Baggett will speak on the Ranger and Surveyor missions, former JPL Chief Scientist

Arden Albee will talk about lunar samples, and former JPL Chief Engineer

John Casani will talk about JPL and Caltech’s role in supporting the lunar landing.

Moderated by JPL Science Communications Specialist Preston Dyches, the free

90-minute lectures, “Moon Struck! Celebrating Apollo’s 50th Anniversary,” are at

7 p.m. Thursday, July 11 at The Von Kármán Auditorium at JPL (4800 Oak Grove

Drive, Pasadena) and at 7 p.m. Friday, July 12, at Caltech’s Ramo Auditorium (1200

E. California Blvd. Pasadena). No reservations or tickets are required.

On Monday, July 15, the California Science Center will open a special giantscreen

edition of Todd Douglas Miller’s “Apollo 11” documentary on the immersive

7-story IMAX screen. The center will host a special day-long event on July 20, with

exhibits of Gemini and Apollo space capsules, Apollo era space suits, a Ranger

space craft and a lunar sample. JPL will be onsite with a custom portable planetarium,

a special live, interactive and immersive presentation about space science

complete with an expert to answer questions. For more information, visit CaliforniaScienceCenter.org.

Now, as the 50th anniversary logo signifies by including the moon and Mars,

NASA astronauts will return to the moon but in preparation for a trip to Mars. The

first woman and the next man are scheduled to make a moon landing in 2024. JPL,

with its Rover program, has already been paving the way and will be providing

even more information about Mars with its Rover 2020.

PBS’s “Nova” premieres a five-part series, “The Planets,” on July 24 (Check

local listings). A press preview of its Mars episode included JPL’s Deputy Project

Scientist Leslie Tamppari, MSL Project Scientist Ashwin R. Vasavada and John P.

Grotzinger, Caltech’s Fletcher Jones Professor of Geology.

By remembering the last Giant Leap, you can prepare for the Next Giant Leap

from the moon to Mars and Pasadena will be an essential part of that exciting new

chapter in space. ■

Major Cards Accepted

It is incredible how cyclical life can be. Last June I wrote about the then

newly opened Piencone Pizzeria in Eagle Rock, a spot I have revisited

several times since, which has undergone its own evolution. Nearly a year

later, the team behind Piencone and Four Cafe have furthered their conquest

of the Eagle Rock stretch of Colorado Boulevard by opening up a third

restaurant — Penny Oven.

The through line at all of Chef Michelle Wilton’s Eagle Rock eateries

is family. Four Cafe, the first-born of the trio and open since 2009, is a

sandwich, burger and salad joint all based around organic and sustainable,

locally grown ingredients. Essentially, it’s like a farmers’ market where one

person took all the best ingredients from the stands and made a fast-casual

menu from all of it. Tables are adorned with mason jars holding napkins, or

serving as small buckets of silverware.

Wilton’s middle child, Piencone, opened in 2018 and is the rebel of the trio.

The pizza, pub, and ice cream shop was the anti-Shakey’s and a godsend to

parents who missed eating at restaurants that didn’t use vinyl sheeting as

tablecloths. With their elevated wood-fired pizzas and an entire dining room

dedicated to families with a play area and ample room for movement for

squirrely little ones to roam, families are able to enjoy a regular meal.

Fulfilling the stereotype of the youngest child, Penny Oven takes the

best features of the older siblings and some special

qualities and melds them into a new persona. (Full

disclosure: I am the youngest child in my family.)

Penny Oven continues the same wood aesthetic

as its elder siblings. From Four Cafe, Penny

Oven takes on baked goods and breakfast. From

Piencone, it carries over the wood-fired oven. But

because it had to set itself apart from its elders

Penny Oven could not just have a plain wood-fired

oven. Taking it one level further, and true to its

name, it is covered in thousands of real pennies.

Perhaps as an homage to Piencone, Penny Oven also

has a play area for little ones so that parents may

enjoy their coffee while their children play in the

small nook underneath the staircase.

Penny Oven is building its own identity with

breakfast, coffee and lunches. Keeping that home

style feeling that sets Wilton’s family of restaurants

apart, nearly everything on the menu is made inhouse,

from all of the breads to the almond milk

used in the coffee, it is all created right there.

It is not a coffee and laptop, get-work-done cafe.

Instead, it's more of a casual date cafe, or a spot for

the couple in their mid-30s that reminisces about

the days of bottomless mimosa brunches yet now

have their toddlers in tow.

Effortlessly simple, Penny Oven’s menu is broken

down into the refreshingly noncomplex categories

of toasts, sweets, plates, sides, and kids. There

is also a bakery display case filled with an everchanging

assortment of baked goods to ponder over

and test your self-control as you wait in line.

One highlight is the toast menu does not feature

avocado toast or any variation of the millennial

kryptonite. Rather, Penny Oven does some more

adventurous takes on their homemade breads. The

croque toast ($10) comes with mushrooms, spinach,

caramelized leeks and bechamel sauce.

The croissant sandwich ($8) takes the iconic

donut store ham and cheese croissant flavors,

sends them to charm school, and the result is Penny

Oven’s croissant sandwich; a ham and gruyere

omelet on their house croissant with a blood orange

marmalade. The ham has a subtle spice, the eggs

are rich and creamy, and the marmalade enhances

the flavors perfectly. Despite my doubts about

sometimes bitter blood orange, it works beautifully

here.

The kid’s menu at Penny Oven really stands out

for the level of care and detail in the options and

ingredients not oft seen. For one of the first times, I,

a childless adult male, seriously considered ordering

off of the kid’s menu.

The pink dragon smoothie ($5) is a hot pink

concoction of pitaya, spinach, blueberries, banana

and apple juice and a super clever way to get your

little one to consume vegetables. Even the minime

pancakes ($5) are made with buckwheat, oats,

bananas and spinach before they are topped with

blueberries and maple syrup.

For fear of heart palpitations I was not able to

try every coffee on the menu, but since I went on

one of our sweltering mornings I was able to try one

of Penny Oven’s iced coffees. The hemp cacao iced

coffee ($4.50) is made with the titular ingredients

and flavored with coconut oil, vanilla and maple

syrup, brought all together with their homemade

almond milk. Simultaneously refreshing and

caffeinated, it is one of my favorite coffee drinks

offered in the area. The freshness of the almond

milk is clear by the rich flavor and lack of fully

machinated smoothness.

Only open from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily, Penny

Oven is perfectly poised for both the on-your-wayto-work

pickup or the easy, breezy brunch. All

of Wilton’s restaurants have held to a Matthew

McConaughey level of effortlessly cool, relaxed

dining, but Penny Oven really seals the deal on the

natural and relaxed atmosphere. It’s summertime.

Treat yourself to a visit for brunch or a light lunch

and a crafted beverage. I promise you’ll catch those

vacay vibes.

QUESTIONS

NEW MOTHER PONDERS WHY HER

OWN MOM COMMITTED SUICIDE

Dear Patti,

My mother committed suicide when I was 4 years old. My father did a

wonderful job raising me on his own and I always had the support of all four of

my grandparents. Since I was so young when she died, I have very little memory

of my mom. I honestly didn’t have very strong feelings about her, until now.

Five months ago I gave birth to a baby girl and to me she is the most precious

little human being in the world. I’d always heard parents say that the love for a

child is like no other, but it wasn’t until I had my daughter that I truly understood.

Now that I’m a mother myself, I keep having all these thoughts about my own

mother. How could she have left me? I can’t imagine leaving my child motherless,

and especially never by choice. For the first time I wonder what my life would have

been like if my mom had lived. If she really loved me and my father, how could she

kill herself? Why would anyone want to commit suicide when they have people

who love them and want to help them?

Please, if you can shed some light on the subject, maybe I can better understand

what my mom was thinking and finally move on.

— Daisy

Dear Daisy,

Even though it was a long time ago, I’m very sorry about your loss and that you

never got the chance to know your mother. Unfortunately, many loved ones struggling

to find solace share your frustration of seeking answers to unanswerable questions.

Each suicide or suicide attempt is complicated with individualized layers of issues.

While you may never know what your mother was experiencing, I don’t believe that

she wanted to leave you. She just didn’t know how to live with her emotional pain.

When I work with patients and they talk about suicidal feelings, I’m fully aware

that they could follow through with the self-destructive act of suicide. That doesn’t

necessarily mean they actually want to take their physical life away. Rather, they

want to put an end to the pain they feel. When someone is pushed to a breaking point

with unbearable dark emotions, they may feel that suicide is the only way to stop their

agony.

Sometimes there does need to be a death for a rebirth to occur, but it doesn’t have

to be a literal death. It’s the job of the therapist and the patient to work together to

identify what has to change so that new life can occur and thoughts of suicide can

cease. I look at suicidal ideation (thoughts/fantasies about suicide) as a wake-up call

for change. If a patient believes there is no hope that is when they are most at risk.

No baby is born wanting to harm itself. When someone considers suicide, it stems

from trauma, abuse, mental illness, or a combination of these. If a patient describes

a particularly violent means of committing suicide, it is termed “self-murder.” It

reflects a homicidal rage that has built up within, is repressed, and becomes maladaptive

against the self. At that point one may be so filled with despair and rage

against themselves that they believe their loved ones are better off without them. It’s

the task of therapy to help the patient experience this inner rage without becoming

self-destructive. For example, if someone fantasizes about shooting herself, I can help

her acknowledge who it is that she really wants to shoot, and process that rage in a

healthy way.

Much remains to be learned on the science of suicide and the influences of such

factors as social and moral forces, genetics, substance abuse, depression, schizophrenia,

and other personality disorders. In 2018 the World Health Organization reported

that an estimated 1 million people worldwide die from suicide each year, that there

is one death by suicide every 40 seconds, and they predict that by 2020 the rate will

increase to one every 20 seconds.

The late Dr. Edwin Shneidman, a renowned pioneer in the field of suicide who

founded the Los Angeles Suicide Prevention Center, once said, “I still believe it’s critical

to look at personal stories, emotional circumstances, and private histories in the

study of suicide, not just the biology and pharmacology of suicide and depression.” He

further adds, “I believe that suffering is at the heart of every suicide. If I were to do it

all over again, I would probably study love.” ■

Psychotherapy, has been a psychotherapist in private practice for 23 years and has an offi ce in Pasadena.

DWAYNE COLBERT’S SKETCH

COMEDY SHOW ‘SHADE’ TAKES

A BITINGLY SATIRICAL LOOK

AT RACE RELATIONS

BY CARL KOZLOWSKI

The state of race relations in America is hardly a laughing

matter under normal circumstances, with bitter

divisiveness manifesting everywhere from the ugly

white supremacist rallies of Charlottesville, Virginia to the

contentious exchanges between presidential candidates Kamala

Harris and Joe Biden at the recent Democratic debate.

Nonetheless, Pasadena-based writer-actor Dwayne Colbert

decided to take a stab at a satirical sketch show on the topic

called “Shade,” and the hard work has paid off with critical

acclaim and two extensive runs so far this year, including

the current one at 10 p.m. Saturdays at the Second City

theater in Hollywood.

The daringly hilarious show features a large and

RACE RIOT

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 15

ethnically diverse cast of 12, with strong

representation of all four major American

ethnicities: Caucasian, African-American,

Asian-American and Latino. Building off

the intriguing question “What if you could

be someone else, just for one day?” the

original musical comedy (with songs by

Hughie Stone Fish) sets the stage “for a doppelganger

switcheroo that goes way, way

beyond skin-deep differences.”

“I had written a full-on musical comedy

for Second City called ‘Afros and Ass

Whoopins’ about police brutality,” says Colbert,

who is African-American while Stone

Fish is Caucasian. “That was so successful

even LA Weekly and LA Magazine ran

stories about it, and it got three extensions

and ran for a year and a half. The Second

City producers trusted me to not only teach

there and coach house teams for sketch

and improv, but asked me to create another

show.

“It took two years to write ‘Shade,’

because there was some pressure after ‘Afros’

to decide what else we wanted to talk

about,” adds Colbert. “Everyone’s got hangups

with race, and I always loved switcheroo

comedies like ‘The Prince and the Pauper’

and ‘Freaky Friday.’ So I thought, ‘What

if Rachel Dolezal got her wish to be black

and Stacey Dash got her wish to be white?

What if they got the other experience but

the way that each race wanted them to experience

the other, the harsh realities?’ The

idea was to look at how life is as a white

person but through black people’s eyes, and

vice versa.”

Colbert had previously teamed with

Stone Fish on “Afros,” drawing the inspiration

to work with the “Jewish guy from

Syracuse” after learning that the classic

race-related song “Strange Fruit” by Billie

Holiday was “based on a poem by a Jewish

school teacher.” Realizing that many

Caucasians in America were involved in

the struggle to improve race relations, he

decided to partner with Stone Fish to gain a

perspective from both of the major sides in

the racial divide.

On both “Afros” and “Shade” the duo

worked at first from an outline rather

than a finished script, with key emotional

moments driving the narrative despite the

majority of each show being bold satire.

Before writing the songs for “Afros,” Stone

FIsh did a lot of research to understand the

mindsets of both police officers and black

families who had negative experiences

with them, by interviewing both sides. With

“Shade,” he interviewed members of all the

races portrayed.

“Once we have a great script and songs,

the other major thing is picking a cast of actors

who can come in and work magic on the

fly,” says Colbert, referring to the fact that a

much larger ensemble of actors rotate turns

in the show’s roles. “Their professionalism to

come in and pick it up off a recording of the

show 24 hours before they hit stage for the

first time is incredible.

“It’s not normal to switch so often, but

we’re running in the summer when people

are doing more things all over in their lives,”

he adds. “We go for singing ability first on

‘Shade,’ and then acting is secondary. With

‘Afros,’ it was the opposite.”

Colbert graduated from UC Davis —

“Surprisingly with a math degree, considering

I’m a writer and director now” — after

growing up in South Central Los Angeles

throughout his childhood. He first experienced

Pasadena at 18, when his parents

reunited after a six-year separation and

moved to the Crown City together.

“My parents lived there a long time until

they retired and moved away to the South,”

says Colbert, who also has a created a

digital video series called “Brainwashed By

Toons” that is about to debut on the Funny

Or Die website. “I’m married, have my kids,

and I just love the area. All my friends I live

and work with in Hollywood are fascinated

I live there. But to me it’s a normal drive of

20 minutes away, and no skyscrapers, so it

feels like a college town, I love it. I take my

little boys around in Radio Flyer wagons to

coffee shops.” n

“Shade” runs at 10 p.m. Saturdays through Aug. 17 at

Second City Hollywood, 6560 Hollywood Blvd., Los

Angeles. Tickets are $12. Call (323) 464-8542 or visit

JOSHUA TREE FAVORITE GENE EVARO JR. BRINGS HIS

FUNKY SOUL TO ONE COLORADO WEDNESDAY

Back in the ’90s, when “da

Soup” was bubbling warmly

through live music venues in

Old Town and greater Pasadena,

Gene Evaro Jr. would have fit right

in.

A scion of the sprawling, multigenerational

Evaro clan of musicians

and singers renowned in the

Joshua Tree-Palm Springs desert

region, Evaro Jr. resides in JT and

projects that creative community’s

tribal vibe of funky love vibrations

and good times. His immediate

musical family includes sisters

Gabrielle and Shavaughn, who performed

with him in popular family

band Evaro (whose self-titled 2010

album closed with a hummed and

strummed “Ode to Natalie,” for a

sister who had died), and who have

also backed him in his Gene Evaro

Jr. & the Family lineup. Their father,

Gene Evaro Sr., a lifelong musician

and producer, toured with the likes

of the Temptations and Ike & Tina

Turner.

Evaro Jr. comes across as a

bohemian free spirit, but behind

that everybody-come-together

persona lie solid chops; he’s been

playing keyboards, composing and

programming since childhood, and

his extended guitar solos nod to

influences like Prince and Derek

Trucks. A favorite at the annual

Joshua Tree music festival, he’s a

smooth showman onstage, encouraging

audiences to sing along and

dance to lighthearted jams like

“Charlie Moan,” “California is Burning,”

“Hustlin’,” “Love Awakening,”

and “Soul (How I Keep Movin On),”

whose silky harmonies and sensual

grooves suggest Marvin Gaye after

40 days in the desert. Songs like

recent single “Loving You” (a showcase

for him and bassist gal pal Piper

Robison) and “Smile” stick with

standard R&B romance (“Go ahead

and smile, girl, it looks good on

you”). “We Don’t Need to Be Sold”

blends a reggae-kissed message of

unity and protest with family faith

and stinging leads before torquing

into a serious guitar-horn jam:

“We don’t need to be high

We don’t need to sold

We don’t need to be saved

We don’t need to be told

We just wander around with our

God-given love”

He celebrated his birthday with

a show at Pappy & Harriet’s in Pioneertown

last week before playing

the super groove High Sierra Music

Festival on the Fourth, and he’s hitting

the road later this month with

his band for a string of summer

tour dates through the West. First,

though, he’s warming up with a duo

or trio in One Colorado’s courtyard

Wednesday night. n

Wine Wednesday hosts Gene Evaro Jr.

at One Colorado, 41 Hugus Alley, Old

Pasadena, 7-8:30 p.m. Wednesday, July

10; free admission. Info: (626) 564-1066.

MIKE MANN & COWBOY SOUL OFFER THEIR

TAKE ON DIVERGENT GENRES

TAKE A LITTLE COUNTRY, THEN ADD A DASH OF SOUL AND YOU HAVE MIKE

MANN & COWBOY SOUL, PERFORMING SUNDAY AT THE ROSE.

Mann, lead vocalist, guitarist, harmonica player and songwriter, launched the group

as Mike Mann & The Nightriders. The native of the Mississippi River city of Clinton,

Iowa, now based in LA is one of the rare examples of a black cowboy music act. After

changing the name to Mike Mann & Country Soul, the band picked up steam.

Early in life, he developed a love for harmonica and guitar, and also worked for some

years as a radio personality at various places around the country. He learned about the

cowboy connection to the black community after reading the book, “The Black West”

by William Katz.

The band offers an innovative take on the divergent genres and makes it work.

Charlie Chaplin’s decades-spanning oeuvre.

A handful feature vocals, including still-timely

speeches from 1940’s anti-fascist “Great Dictator”

and 1947’s “Monsieur Verdoux.” But the music’s

winsome escapism charms unadorned; listen to

the romantic clarinet and violin solos composed

by Chaplin for 1931’s “City Lights”; the horn- and

string-stoked exuberance of “Jazz” from 1919’s

“A Day’s Pleasure”; the pop-parodying “Mandolin

Serenade” from 1957’s “A King in New York”; and

the dramatic orchestration of “Smile” from 1936’s

“Modern Times.” It sparkles most when, like

Chaplin’s expressive Tramp, it’s free from words.

Big Time Blues

JOHNNY RAWLS SERVES UP A FULL MENU OF HOT SONGS AT BIG MAMA’S

TOP-SHELF BLUES SINGER AND GUITARIST JOHNNY RAWLS DELIVERS A PLATE FULL OF BLUES AT BIG MAMA’S RIB SHACK

SATURDAY NIGHT.

Rawls (no relation to Lou Rawls) came from Mississippi, the home of hurts-so-good music. After gaining a love for the music

as a child by listening to his grandfather play, he began performing professionally while still in high school. He soon graduated

into playing with stars, including Joe Tex and the Sweet Inspirations.

Honing his skills, Rawls became band director for O.V. Wright, then led Little Johnny Taylor’s band, finally going solo in 1985.

‘Moving’ Music

MUSE/IQUE KICKS OFF ITS SUMMER SEASON SATURDAY WITH MOVIE TRIBUTE

SHOW ‘MOVING/PICTURES’

There are plenty of great traditions in

every SoCal summer, from cookouts

and beach trips to Dodger games and

concerts. But Pasadena has its own

sources of musical magic, including

MUSE/IQUE, an orchestra which combines

classical music with jazz, pop

and an assortment of dance troupes

each year for an exciting three-show

season of fun.

This year’s theme for the series

— held at the Huntington Library, Art

Collections and Botanical Gardens —

is “Music in Motion,” and it kicks off

Saturday with a show titled “Moving/

Pictures.”

Playing off the idea that “a ticket to

the movies has always been a ticket to

our wildest dreams,” the show features

some of the most popular tunes from

classic movies and also boasts a

performance by three-time Tony Award

nominee Joshua Henry.

“We were inspired largely by The

Huntington, because when I walk

among their world famous plantings and

paintings, I am struck by the fact that

these fixed objects, lovingly preserved,

move people on a global scale and their

inspiration will surely transform hearts

not yet born,” says MUSE/IQUE founder

and conductor Rachael Worby. “I think

BY CARL KOZLOWSKI

of The Huntington as a place that spins

the globe, and I think of music the same

way.

“We begin the series with this

exploration of the art of the film score

as an interplay between music, motion,

character and ideas,” she adds. “But

we also go beyond the film score to

examine all sorts of images that move

us, and we imagine together the music

that comes to mind when we encounter

beautiful imagery. Because it is the

weekend of Independence Day, we will

be paying particular homage to the moving

images and music that underpin the

American Spirit.”

One major element of Saturday’s

show will be “the art of John Williams.”

The famed composer has 51 Oscar

nominations and his score for “Star

Wars” was named by the American Film

Institute as the greatest American film

score of all time, but Worby is keeping

things interesting by spotlighting some

of his lesser-known but still compelling

works.

“Any program focused on the

way music and images work together

must include the original genius of the

genre,” says Worby. “In so many ways,

Williams invented the way our imagination

works today. We will be playing

scores not frequently featured in John

Williams tribute evenings, such as his

scores for “Lincoln” and “Memoirs of a

Geisha.” We’re interested in illuminating

the way he builds characters

through music.

“We will also be performing songs

that define certain eras and feelings

within America, and yet seem to have

the timeless ability to move us forward,”

adds Worby. “These include ‘Soliloquy’

from ‘Carousel,’ Gershwin’s ‘Summertime,’

and the Louis Armstrong standby

‘What a Wonderful World.’”

The next show of the season is

“Train/Glory” (which pays tribute to

trains from the Transcontinental Railroad

to toy trains) on Aug. 3, with guest

soprano Liv Redpath and the dance

troupe Body Traffic. The third and

final show is “Band/Together,” which

features the American Ballet Theatre

and the “daring piano duo” Anderson

and Roe to pay homage to the idea that

music can move people together in a

way that creates a divine outcome. n

BY CARL KOZLOWSKI

Making Dreams Happen

‘WILD ROSE’ IS A STORY OF REDEMPTION,

FAMILY AND THE ABILITY TO CHANGE

Jessie Buckley and Sophie Okonedo in “Wild Rose“

With the Fourth of July being celebrated this

week, what better time than to think about

the American Dream? The idea of pursuing

life, liberty and happiness enshrined in the Declaration

of Independence itself, along with the idea that you can

make any dream happen if you just work hard enough.

In the new movie “Wild Rose,” a young and wild

single mother of two named Rose-Lynn dreams of

being a country singer. But she’s got a few obstacles in

the way, including the fact that she lives in Glasgow,

Scotland, and is fresh out of a year-long prison stint for

distributing heroin. Now wearing an electronic ankle

bracelet, she is required to be home every night from 7

p.m. to 7 a.m.

Rose-Lynn is the kind of free-wheeling gal who yells

the F word at the top of her lungs the second she’s free

from her jail cell and heads to her boy toy for a shag

before bothering to make it home to her young son and

daughter. Add a stop at the pub where she gets buzzed

on whiskey on the way home, and it’s no wonder her

mom isn’t too happy to see her return after a year of

raising her kids.

With her children distant from her and a seemingly

dead-end job as a housemaid to a wealthy family that

pays her just about $12 an hour, Rose-Lynn feels like

she’ll never pull together the money to escape to Nashville

and take a real swing at success. But when the

children of her employer Susannah come home early

and catch her belting out a song while vacuuming, Susannah

asks her if she’s tried to make it professionally.

Rose-Lynn responds by immediately asking for

$5,000 to make a fresh start in Nashville, but Susannah

tells her to instead tape a video demo of herself singing

and send it to the top country music deejay on the BBC

radio airwaves. When Rose-Lynn knocks his socks off

with a beautifully heartfelt ballad, she gets an invitation

to come meet him in London and her dreams seem

suddenly tangible.

Yet questions remain: Is she really talented enough

to make it, or is she jeopardizing her family by seeking

to spend time away from them? How will she resolve

things with her mother, who thinks she’s delusional?

And can she really ever put her wild past behind her?

“Wild Rose” is a quiet film, in spite of its occasionally

rousing tunes sung by lead actress Jessie Buckley, an

Irishwoman who broke out on a British talent competition

series and has been a rising star ever since.

Rose-Lynn is a fascinating character, a real hell raiser

in the early scenes of the film, but eventually revealing

a profound loneliness and desire to finally do better as a

mother, a daughter and for herself.

Buckley has incredible vocals, but in keeping with

the movie’s intimate and quiet tone, her most powerful

moments are in the songs where she sings almost in a

whisper. It’s a magical effect that will make those who

see this movie fall in love with her immediately.

As her mother, veteran actress Julie Walters (who

was Oscar-nominated in the 1980s for “Educating

Rita”) looks and acts like Emma Thompson. It’s a solid

performance of a woman who has been ground down

and exasperated by her daughter’s poor behavior and

incredibly bad choices for so long, she wonders if she’ll

ever truly turn it around.

Those aspects — of redemption and family, trust

and the desire to change — are universally relatable

issues. They make this movie very affecting, but the

occasionally too-slow pace keeps this from being a

perfect movie. If you love good music or characterbased

drama, however, “Wild Rose” should smell quite

sweet. n

ANGELES, CA 90012

state your objections or file written objections

with the court before the hearing. Your

appearance may be in person or by your

attorney.

IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a contingent

creditor of the decedent, you must file your

claim with the court and mail a copy to the

personal representative appointed by the

court within the later of either (1) four months

from the date of first issuance of letters to a

general personal representative, as defined in

section 58(b) of the California Probate Code,

or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal

delivery to you of a notice under section

9052 of the California Probate Code.

Other California statutes and legal authority

may affect your rights as a creditor. You

may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable

in California law.

YOU MAY EXAMINE the file kept by the

court. If you are a person interested in the

estate, you may file with the court a Request

for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing

of an inventory and appraisal of estate

assets or of any petition or account as

provided in Probate Code section 1250. A

Request for Special Notice form is available

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 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, (800) 758-8052 for information

regarding the trustee’s sale or visit this

Internet Web site, www.homesearch.com,

for information regarding the sale of this

property, using the file number assigned

to this case, T.S.# 9948-5158. 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. 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. Affinia Default Services, LLC 301
