SOUNDING THE ALARM<br />

ALEX HERNANDEZ AND CHANTELLE HERSHBERGER GO ON TRIAL IN WHAT THEY VIEW AS A FIGHT AGAINST FASCISM<br />

Donald Trump, the candidate<br />

who called Mexican immigrants<br />

“rapists” on the campaign trail,<br />

is now the leader of a regime<br />

running concentration camps at<br />

the border. This past weekend,<br />

ICE agents were to conduct<br />

raids in nine cities, including Los<br />

Angeles, making good on Trump’s<br />

threat to detain and deport<br />

millions of immigrants.<br />

The vicious attack on<br />

immigrants is the spearhead of<br />

a larger fascist program by the<br />

Trump/Pence regime to radically<br />

remake society: civil liberties are<br />

stripped away and group after<br />

group is demonized on a road that<br />

leads to unspeakable horrors.<br />

Millions of people want this<br />

to stop. But stopping Trump<br />

and Pence will take more than<br />

wishing something would change,<br />

or voicing our outrage on social<br />

media. People will have to step<br />

outside of their comfort zones.<br />

They will have to put something<br />

on the line.<br />

Alex Hernandez and Chantelle<br />

Hershberger are two people who<br />

did just that. On two separate<br />

mornings in 2017, they stepped<br />

out onto the 101 Freeway, holding<br />

signs and blocking traffic to<br />

inspire people to take to the<br />

streets in nonviolent protest<br />

against the Trump/Pence regime.<br />

Chantelle moved to Los<br />

Angeles from Ohio just before<br />

Trump’s election. It bothered<br />

her that after each outrage and<br />

protest, people just seemed to<br />

go home and normalize what the<br />

regime was doing. When asked<br />

about why she joined the freeway<br />

action, she said, “It’s one thing to<br />

talk about how wrong it is that a<br />

white supremacist is in the White<br />

House, and to even recognize<br />

the danger that ensues when you<br />

have the president backing these<br />

angry mobs of white supremacist<br />

militias. But it’s another thing<br />

when you understand that this<br />

is vital to consolidating fascism.<br />

You need to incite fear among the<br />

masses. So then I had to decide.<br />

What was I going to do about it?”<br />

Alex grew up in South Central<br />

Los Angeles and saw firsthand the<br />

widespread violence of the police<br />

against black and brown people.<br />

After Trump’s election, he saw<br />

the extreme danger of a fascist<br />

regime at the helm of the most<br />

powerful country and military<br />

in the world. He took part in the<br />

freeway action because of what<br />

was going on in society at the<br />

time. “A year and a half ago, think<br />

of what the Trump/Pence regime<br />

was doing... threatening North<br />

Korea with nuclear war, banning<br />

Muslims, restricting trans people<br />

from the military. We did this to<br />

sound the alarm against fascism.<br />

Those were not normal times. And<br />

now, look at all the children in<br />

concentration camps, and lawyers<br />

for the Justice Department saying<br />

that migrant children don’t need<br />

toothbrushes, beds, anything<br />

sanitary... All these things have<br />

consequences. This is the logic<br />

that leads to genocide.”<br />

Last month, prosecutors<br />

lost their case against Alex and<br />

Chantelle when the trial ended in<br />

a hung jury. They tried to frame<br />

their case as a simple traffic<br />

violation, despite the fact that<br />

the charges were brought by the<br />

highly political Major Crimes/Anti-<br />

Terrorist Division of the LAPD, a<br />

division with a sordid history of<br />

spying on activist groups.<br />

Alex and Chantelle spoke in<br />

court about why they risked their<br />

lives to block the freeway, and<br />

moved several jurors to refuse to<br />

convict. But immediately after<br />

a mistrial was announced, the<br />

Chantelle and Alex fl ank Damon Alimouri,<br />

one of their defense attorneys, in<br />

front of the Metro Court in downtown LA.<br />

prosecution vowed to retry the<br />

case. By doing this, they join<br />

nationwide efforts to criminalize<br />

protest in the wake of Trump’s<br />

election and become enforcers of<br />

the fascist suppression of dissent.<br />

Through aggressive policing and<br />

prosecution, and anti-protest<br />

bills either passed or proposed in<br />

35 states, a fundamental right is<br />

under serious threat. We should<br />

never forget Trump’s statement<br />

from the campaign trail that<br />

he longed for the days when<br />

protesters were carried out on<br />

stretchers.<br />

These courageous activists<br />

stood up against a fascist<br />

regime before many people<br />

recognized that it was fascism.<br />

Videos of the freeway actions<br />

went viral, showing millions of<br />

people the kind of resistance<br />

that was needed. Supporting<br />

Alex and Chantelle and the<br />

rest of the freeway protesters,<br />

calling the City Attorney Mike<br />

Feuer’s office and signing<br />

this petition to demand that<br />

they drop the charges, and<br />

filling the courtroom when<br />

their trial starts on July 25,<br />

goes a long way in refusing<br />

to accept a fascist America.<br />

Many supporters of Alex and<br />

Chantelle have chosen to stand<br />

on the right side of history. We<br />

invite you to join us. ■<br />

BY ROBERT M. NELSON<br />

THE RACE TO SPACE<br />

THE APOLLO 11 MOON LANDING WAS A VICTORY FOR DEMOCRATIC SOCIALISM<br />

This is the week that we celebrate the first human landing on the moon. Credit will<br />

be taken by many different interests for their role in this great human achievement.<br />

Curiously, the Apollo moon landing of a half-century ago has great relevance to<br />

today’s hotly contested Democratic primary race. NASA’s landing on the moon<br />

was a demonstration of successful application of Democratic Socialism — a much<br />

discussed matter in Democratic circles these days.<br />

Curiously, this democratic socialist concept of NASA had its origins under<br />

Republican President Dwight Eisenhower.<br />

The 1950s were a period of vast global expansion by the United States — the only<br />

World War II power left unscathed by the fighting. After the war we captured the<br />

majority of the Nazi rocket scientists, including Wernher von Braun who oversaw<br />

the development and manufacture of the infamous V-2 rockets at Peenemunde, the<br />

secret Nazi rocket-testing site. There von Braun supervised concentration camp<br />

prisoners who produced the rockets that flew across the English Channel to attack<br />

our British allies.<br />

Von Braun’s team of German rocket scientists were brought to the US and<br />

re-established at a secret Army base near Huntsville, Alabama. Concurrently, the<br />

Soviet Union, our World War II ally, developed its own atomic and thermonuclear<br />

weapons. The arms race was on.<br />

Military thinking at the time held that new delivery systems had to be developed<br />

to deliver nuclear weapons. World War II’s Army Air Corps, re-constituted as<br />

the US Air Force, first developed the B-36, then the B-47, and finally the B-52<br />

intercontinental bombers as nuclear weapon delivery systems. The ultimate goal<br />

was to deliver the weapons by ballistic missiles from North America to potential<br />

adversaries in Europe and Asia, in particular the Soviet Union and the Peoples<br />

Republic of China.<br />

The task of developing effective intercontinental ballistic missile delivery<br />

systems was pursued competitively between the US Air Force with its Navaho<br />

rocket, the Navy with its Vanguard, and the Army with its Redstone missile system.<br />

Each agency attempted to launch an Earth-orbiting satellite — a clear indication of<br />

ballistic launch capability. Each military branch failed repeatedly. The competitive<br />

approach failed.<br />

In 1956, the Soviet Union successfully launched Sputnik — the first Earthorbiting<br />

spacecraft. A short week later they successfully launched Sputnik II, which<br />

carried Laika, a dog, thereby demonstrating the successful creation of habitability<br />

in space.<br />

President Eisenhower recognized that the three competing military branches<br />

had failed in launching an Earth-orbiting spacecraft. He then led the development<br />

of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). A democratically<br />

elected Congress passed the legislation. The taxpayers made a social investment<br />

of capital to carry out a national objective, making NASA a Democratic Socialist<br />

success.<br />

After NASA’s establishment, the Soviet Union continued to have leadership in the<br />

space race but NASA was slowly gaining.<br />

The Cuban missile crisis of 1962 brought the world close to nuclear disaster.<br />

Earth teetered on the brink of nuclear war. In the end, the USSR agreed to withdraw<br />

its short-range missiles from Cuba. Shortly thereafter, US missiles threatening the<br />

Soviet Union were withdrawn from our NATO ally Turkey. The nuclear superpowers<br />

had stepped back from the brink, but the danger of nuclear brinkmanship remained.<br />

To reorient the dangerous competition for nuclear weapon superiority, President<br />

Kennedy proposed a national goal of landing humans on the moon. Although the<br />

Soviet Union never formally accepted the competition, it carried out a competitive<br />

lunar effort.<br />

Kennedy entrusted the Apollo program to NASA, the same democratic socialist<br />

enterprise that had orbited Explorer I, America’s first Earth-orbiting spacecraft,<br />

which was developed at Pasadena’s NASA facility, Jet Propulsion Laboratory.<br />

Fifty years ago this week we celebrate the Apollo 11 spacecraft landing on the<br />

moon and returning to Earth. Let’s also remember this week that Wall Street did<br />

not put humans on the moon. That was accomplished by a democratic socialist<br />

endeavor called NASA, which was established under a Republican president. ■<br />

US Rep. Judy Chu (D-Pasadena) has been a San Gabriel Valley<br />

political leader since the mid-1980s.<br />

In 1985, Chu was elected to the Garvey School District<br />

Board of Education. From there, she won a seat on the Monterey<br />

Park City Council, where she served as mayor three times.<br />

By the turn of the century, Chu entered state politics, winning<br />

a seat in the state Assembly in 2001.<br />

After terming out of that office, with her husband Mike Eng,<br />

who had taken over his wife’s seat on the Monterey Park City<br />

Council and then won her Assembly seat, Chu was elected to the<br />

State Board of Equalization in 2006.<br />

In 2009, the former junior college psychology professor<br />

became the first Chinese-American woman elected to Congress<br />

when she won the special election that year for the then-32nd<br />

Congressional District after then-Congresswoman and now-LA<br />

County Supervisor Hilda Solis was appointed Secretary of Labor<br />

by President Barack Obama.<br />

In a packed field, Chu finished first with 32 percent of the vote,<br />

easily defeating Republican rival Betty Chu in the runoff election,<br />

capturing 62 percent of the vote in that race.<br />

Since then, Chu has won re-election five times with at least<br />

60 percent of the vote in four of those contests. Three of those<br />

victories have come against perennial Republican candidate Jack<br />

Orswell.<br />

Since 2012, Chu has been representing Pasadena and the West<br />

San Gabriel Valley that with redistricting that year became the<br />

27th District.<br />

Currently, the 66-year-old lawmaker serves on the powerful House<br />

Ways and Means Committee, which has filed a lawsuit to obtain<br />

President Trump’s long-sought tax documents. The Ways and Means<br />

Committee also has jurisdiction over legislation pertaining to Social<br />

Security and Medicare.<br />

On that committee, Chu is a member of its subcommittees on<br />

Health and Human Resources, Worker and Family Support, and<br />

Oversight, giving her responsibility for issues related to health care<br />

reform and safety net programs.<br />

In April, Chu and Republican Congressman Devin Nunes<br />

(R-Fresno) teamed up on a rare piece of bipartisan legislation: the<br />

Sunshine for Samples Act.<br />

This bill would amend the Sunshine Act to require drug<br />

manufacturers to publicly make available the number and value<br />

of free drug samples given to health care providers and charities<br />

annually.<br />

Chu also serves on the House Small Business Committee, which<br />

has oversight of the Small Business Administration, and is the chair of<br />

the Subcommittee on Investigations, Oversight and Regulations.<br />

She has also worked to bring two full-service small business<br />

PROMISES AND<br />

PURPOSE<br />

DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL<br />

FRONTRUNNER JOE BIDEN TO<br />

VISIT PASADENA FRIDAY<br />

Pasadena City Councilman<br />

John Kennedy, in what he<br />

is calling an effort to bring<br />

“prepared, competent,<br />

relevant and sane leadership<br />

to the White House,”<br />

will welcome Democratic<br />

presidential frontrunner<br />

Joe Biden to his home<br />

Joe Biden<br />

on Friday, July 19, for a<br />

lunchtime fundraiser.<br />

“I have known Joe Biden for over 30 years,”<br />

said Kennedy, who represents Pasadena’s<br />

District 3. “So it is with an abundance of history<br />

and respect … as well as personal affection that<br />

I am hosting Vice President Biden at an intimate<br />

lunch gathering.”<br />

Biden is currently the frontrunner in the<br />

crowded field of Democratic candidates. His<br />

poll numbers have taken a hit in the weeks since<br />

fellow candidate and California Sen. Kamala<br />

Harris criticized his opposition to 1970s-era<br />

school busing policies as a US senator and<br />

his comments on working with segregationist<br />

senate colleagues, for which he subsequently<br />

apologized.<br />

Those expected to attend the event at Kennedy’s<br />

home include his sister Lena L. Kennedy<br />

and District 6 City Councilman Steve Madison.<br />

On June 29, Harris spoke at a private fundraiser<br />

at the West Pasadena home of Tamerlin<br />

Godley, who is running for Madison’s District 6<br />

council seat.<br />

Biden’s visit to Pasadena follows those of<br />

several other Democratic presidential candidates<br />

in recent weeks. On May 30, New York Sen.<br />

Kirsten Gillibrand spoke at the Women’s City<br />

Club of Pasadena. On May 31, Vermont Sen. Bernie<br />

Sanders held a political rally at the Pasadena<br />

Convention Center and he, Harris, former Housing<br />

and Urban Development Secretary Julián<br />

Castro and Washington Gov. Jay Inslee participated<br />

in the first presidential forum focused on<br />

immigration at the Pasadena Hilton.<br />

Fellow presidential candidate Mayor Pete<br />

Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana is also reportedly<br />

finalizing plans to stump in Pasadena.<br />

Candidates are making sure to show up<br />

in California because the state has moved its<br />

primary election date up from June to March<br />

3, also known as Super Tuesday. The earlier<br />

date — after only Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada<br />

and South Carolina — will ensure that California<br />

voters and the state’s nearly 500 delegates<br />

play a decisive role in determining the eventual<br />

nominee.<br />

POLICE ARREST FIVE IN CONNECTION<br />

WITH ALLEGED SCHEME TO STEAL<br />

ELDERLY CANCER PATIENT’S MONEY<br />

AFTER GETTING HIM DRUNK<br />

BY ANDRÉ COLEMAN<br />

Victor Cass<br />

Pasadena police have arrested five people on suspicion of<br />

stealing $24,000 from a recovering alcoholic and cancer patient after allegedly getting<br />

him intoxicated.<br />

Carolyn Shields, 61, was arrested on July 10 at her East Holly Street apartment in<br />

Pasadena after police officers serving a search warrant found evidence allegedly linking<br />

her to fraudulent online purchases made with the victim’s credit card. Shields was<br />

being held on $50,000 bail, according to police spokesman Lt. Jason Clawson.<br />

Arrested June 26 on suspicion of elder financial abuse and grand theft were Billy<br />

Burton, 63, Griselda “Gracie” Patterson, 48, and her daughter Adriana Patterson, 22,<br />

all of Los Angeles. Antwan Havard, 25 and also of Los Angeles, was also arrested on<br />

suspicion of elder financial abuse and grand theft.<br />

The group allegedly stole more than $24,000 from a 73-year-old victim over a more<br />

than three-month period. The victim’s name was being withheld by police.<br />

Authorities say the group also unsuccessfully attempted to bilk the unidentified<br />

man out of an additional $54,000.<br />

“The Pasadena Police Department takes seriously any and all allegations of elder<br />

financial abuse,” said Detective Victor Cass in a prepared statement. Cass led the<br />

investigation and the arrest of the five suspects.<br />

“These kinds of crimes target our community’s most trusting and vulnerable<br />

senior population,” Cass said.<br />

Burton and the elder Patterson remain in custody in Los Angeles County Jail on<br />

$70,000 and $50,000 bail, respectively. Adriana Patterson and Havard have posted<br />

bail. Those four individuals are due in Pasadena Superior Court on Aug. 8. A court date<br />

for Shields was not immediately available.<br />

Police say Burton, Havard and the Pattersons would consume alcohol with the<br />

victim until he was intoxicated. The suspects would then walk him into his banks and<br />

convince tellers to remove large amounts of cash or issue cashier’s checks on his<br />

behalf. They then allegedly used the victim’s credit card to make online purchases and<br />

rent motel rooms.<br />

The suspects were arrested after Cass received a call from the Pasadena Federal<br />

Credit Union, where the transactions occurred.<br />

After reviewing surveillance video, online purchase receipts, bank records and interviewing<br />

witnesses, Cass notified the credit union to contact him when the suspects<br />

returned.<br />

According to police, all but Shields have confessed. n<br />

‘VULNERABLE TO<br />

EVICTION’<br />

CITY ANNOUNCES MODIFICATIONS TO<br />

TENANT PROTECTION ORDINANCE<br />

BY ANDRÉ COLEMAN<br />

Modifications to the city’s tenant protection ordinance<br />

(TPO), designed to provide greater protections for local<br />

renters facing eviction, went into effect late last week,<br />

according to a statement issued by city officials.<br />

The ordinance, which was adopted in 2004 and amended in 2017, requires<br />

landlords to provide relocation benefits to qualified tenants facing eviction.<br />

“This is important to those Pasadena renters who are feeling vulnerable to<br />

William Huang<br />

eviction,” said city Housing Director William Huang. “It doesn’t necessarily keep folks<br />

in their apartments, but it provides those who are eligible a reasonable relocation<br />

payment.”<br />

Under the modifications, the ordinance now covers tenants if they are evicted 18<br />

months after the property changes owners.<br />

Pasadena rents are among the highest in the state, with some one-bedroom<br />

apartments renting at nearly $3,000 a month.<br />

State laws allow landlords to raise rents as much as they want. In some situations,<br />

landlords have raised the rent by hundreds of dollars. Local housing advocates,<br />

including the Pasadena Tenant Justice Coalition, have been pushing for rent control,<br />

but so far the City Council has had no public discussions on the issue.<br />

The ordinance also requires landlords to pay relocation benefits to displaced<br />

tenants if the building is demolished, converted to condominiums, or permanently<br />

removed from the rental market.<br />

Tenants evicted so landlords or their family members can take occupancy of the<br />

unit are also eligible for relocation fees, as are tenants forced to move under orders<br />

by the government to vacate and tenants evicted from housing owned by educational<br />

institutions under certain situations.<br />

Multifamily rental properties with two or more units on a single parcel are subject<br />

to the ordinance. Single-family homes and condominium units are exempt.<br />

To be eligible for relocation benefits, tenants must be in good standing, with<br />

incomes not exceeding 140 percent of the Los Angeles County area median<br />

income. n<br />

woman’s right to safe and legal abortion.<br />

Most recently she inspected conditions at migrant<br />

camps located in Texas along the border with Mexico.<br />

“We saw children locked up behind steel doors,” Chu<br />

said. “There was a toddler that looked miserable. When<br />

we waved to him he pressed his face against the door,<br />

hoping to get out. It broke my heart.”<br />

Pasadena Weekly recently caught up with Chu,<br />

who spoke about conditions in those camps, and other<br />

issues facing the nation.<br />

PW: You just visited the migrant detention centers<br />

in Texas. What did you see there?<br />

Chu: I was appalled and disgusted. It was a<br />

congressional delegation. We went to El Paso and<br />

we talked to a group of women in cinder block cells<br />

who immediately had tears streaming down their<br />

faces. They were miserable and had no idea when<br />

they were getting out. They have been separated from<br />

their children. One woman had epilepsy. There is no<br />

running water, and some of them had been asking for<br />

medication. There is no running water, and they were<br />

told to drink out of the toilet bowl.<br />

Then we went to the Clint Border Patrol Station,<br />

where they house the unaccompanied minors. There<br />

were 106 kids there. At one point 700 kids were there.<br />

There is also a warehouse where there were 100 to<br />

200 kids at one time. Imagine a giant steel garden shed<br />

that has no air conditioning, in an area where it’s is<br />

over 100 degrees. We could only be in there for a short<br />

period of time.<br />

What can be done about this?<br />

A judge dictates what should go on in this facility.<br />

He has ordered they come up with a solution. I am<br />

pressing on with demands for change. I did not vote<br />

for the bill that passed. I have great concerns about<br />

accountability. The second version did not have<br />

standard of care that was in the first version; it didn’t<br />

include anything about hygiene and nutrition, It<br />

should have a provision that money should only go to<br />

the intended target and a 90-day limit for the minors<br />

to remain in these places. Congressmen should be<br />

able to go in unannounced, so the centers cannot be<br />

sterilized. They tried to do that with us.<br />

Where do you stand on impeachment?<br />

I believe the president committed impeachable<br />

actions. I want to make sure the American public is with<br />

us on this. If we start the process, then all of America<br />

will be focused on it. What America needs to know is the<br />

ultimate goal cannot be accomplished with Republicans<br />

in charge. Unless there was enough pressure on<br />

Republicans we could have a frustrated public and a<br />

president who claims he has triumphed. I think Mueller’s<br />

testimony will be very, very important. For the people to<br />

hear from him, even if it’s just his account of what’s in the<br />

report, that is very, very valuable.<br />

What are your thoughts on the first two debates?<br />

The debates were fascinating. I would say in the first<br />

THE COUNT<br />

As of Monday, 4,156 days after the war in Afghanistan ended …<br />

4,423<br />

American<br />

military service<br />

members (0<br />

more than last<br />

week) have<br />

been reported<br />

killed in action<br />

since the War<br />

on Terror began in<br />

2001, according to The<br />

Associated Press.<br />

473<br />

children of ISIS<br />

extremists have<br />

been deported<br />

from Iraq,<br />

according to<br />

the Iraqi foreign<br />

ministry. Most<br />

of the children are<br />

from Eastern European<br />

countries, as well as<br />

Tajikistan, Russia and Turkey.<br />

debates Elizabeth Warren and Julian Castro stood out,<br />

and in the second one Kamala Harris and Pete Buttigieg<br />

stood out.<br />

Is the country ready for a woman president?<br />

Why not? I think we have many excellent qualified<br />

candidates.<br />

How much damage would a citizenship question<br />

on the census do? (Editor’s note: The president<br />

dropped his effort to get the question on the census<br />

and has now ordered all federal agencies to<br />

compile information on illegal immigrants living<br />

in the country.)<br />

I think they have already done damage because<br />

they have put this issue out there. Some people may<br />

think this question is on the census, even if it’s not,<br />

and avoid the census. Pasadena is in serious danger<br />

of an under count. We have to make sure there is a<br />

complete count. That is very important.<br />

How important is the health care issue?<br />

This is the number one issue for Americans.<br />

We have worked overtime to make our health<br />

care system affordable and to make sure it is for<br />

everybody. We should move closer to a universal<br />

system. I have cosponsored Medicare for all.<br />

I’m for a public option that could compete with<br />

private plans. People would flock to it. I am a huge<br />

proponent of lowering prescription drug prices. A<br />

month’s supply of insulin in my district costs $665.<br />

Yet, in Australia, it’s $28. Why is it if you cross<br />

the border it is one-tenth of the cost? Countless<br />

constituents are considering going to Canada and<br />

Mexico for medicine. It’s outrageous that Americans<br />

are in this position. I co-authored a Ways and<br />

Means bill, Sunshine for Samples, to address this<br />

issue and to put transparency on the costs of drug<br />

samples. Companies spend more on drug samples<br />

and commercials than they do on research and<br />

development. Samples of oxycontin may have led to<br />

the opioid crisis.<br />

Are we headed for another war in the Middle East?<br />

I am very worried and concerned the president<br />

will drag us into another war. He got us out of the<br />

nuclear deal and now Iran is building up its arsenal.<br />

It’s a very troubling situation. I am opposed to him<br />

using the 2001 authorization (for use of military<br />

force) as his excuse to go to war. Every president<br />

has to have approval by Congress. He has to have a<br />

new authorization by Congress.<br />

Is there anything you want to say to your<br />

Pasadena constituents?<br />

I have been fighting to get a veterans health care<br />

clinic in the San Gabriel Valley for seven years.<br />

Finally we got one opened on May 20, in Arcadia.<br />

Previously vets had to take long trips to Los Angeles,<br />

West Los Angeles or Loma Linda to get medical care.<br />

It is a full service facility and a bigger one is going to<br />

open in three to five years. We are going to have the<br />

grand opening on Aug. 2. If anyone wants details on<br />

the facility, they can call my office. n<br />

CAREER ILLUSTRATORTONYGLEESONSPOTLIGHTSHIS<br />

TONY SPOTLIGHTS HIS<br />

OTHER LOVE — WRITING CRIME NOVELS — SUNDAY<br />

AT BATTERY BOOKS & MUSIC<br />

BY CARL KOZLOWSKI<br />

Tony Gleeson has built a nearly 50-year career<br />

in illustration and graphic design for major<br />

book publishers, including Doubleday’s<br />

science fiction division, and countless<br />

publications, such as the Los Angeles Times.<br />

He’s also created numerous cover images for the<br />

Pasadena Weekly.<br />

Yet, he’s also managed the incredible feat of<br />

maintaining another thriving career as the author<br />

of a murder mystery series centered on the procedural<br />

investigations of a group of police in the<br />

Personal Crimes Unit of a fictional West Coast<br />

metropolis.<br />

While his seven novels have first been published<br />

in England as part of the Linford Mystery<br />

Library series, he’s had three of the books republished<br />

in the US by Wildside Press. The latest,<br />

combining two novels following the adventures<br />

of Detective Frank Vandegraf called “It’s Her<br />

Fault” and “The Other Frank,” will be the focus<br />

of a discussion and signing event Sunday at The<br />

Battery Books & Music store in Pasadena.<br />

“I’ve been doing a lot of writing for many<br />

years, mainly nonfiction, but I had several different<br />

kinds of fiction pieces I put together and<br />

this happens to be what someone was interested<br />

in a few years ago,” explains Gleeson. “The first<br />

murder mystery I’d written, ‘Night Music,’ started<br />

with the idea of what would you do if you had<br />

eight people die in one night and how would you<br />

connect it.<br />

“This publisher in the UK was particularly interested<br />

in that, so I started writing more of them<br />

and they’ve bought nine,” he continues. “It was<br />

the luck of the draw. Somebody suggested I try<br />

this particular agent in England and he was the<br />

guy who liked it. That first book was published<br />

at the end of 2015. I haven’t been over there, but<br />

I’m doing the best I can to promote the American<br />

editions here. It’s a good gig, because I like the<br />

A LITERARY PALETTE<br />

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 9<br />

stories I’m coming up with and the characters and world I’ve created.”<br />

Gleeson’s novels center on five detectives in the PCU division, rotating each as<br />

the lead characters in the books. Gleeson notes that the different personalities of<br />

each character give each book a different flavor, as Frank Vandegraf is stoic but<br />

has a sense of humor that gives his adventures a lighter quality. Other characters<br />

are “very serious and dedicated and their books are darker and more serious.”<br />

“It’s Her Fault” finds Vandegraf investigating the death of an eccentric university<br />

professor who had claimed his wife was trying to kill him, even as she went<br />

into hiding after claiming he threatened to kill her. When the detective finds a<br />

mysterious note lying on his chest that says “It’s her fault,” he doubles down on<br />

his efforts to locate the missing wife, his prime suspect — but when he does, the<br />

case takes a bizarre turn.<br />

In “The Other Frank,” Vandegraf hears of the unexpected death of his exwife<br />

and travels to the tiny rural town of Easton to face the demons of his past.<br />

But it’s no respite from the challenging urban crimes of his regular job, and no<br />

sooner has he arrived than two bizarre, violent deaths occur, leading him to feel<br />

irresistibly drawn to help unravel a web of mystery and intrigue. However, he’s<br />

out of his jurisdiction, obstructed by officials, and amidst folk hiding their own<br />

secrets.<br />

“I’m definitely influenced by Evan Hunter, who was a very prolific writer who<br />

wrote 55 procedural mysteries under the name Ed McBain and was an incredible<br />

storyteller in a book series called ‘The 87th Precinct’,” says Gleeson. “He<br />

had a lot of humanity in his books and definitely influenced how I approach<br />

these procedurals.<br />

“I also love Donald Westlake, who influenced the more amusing parts of my<br />

stories, when I want to be funny or have a whole lot of stuff going on in them,”<br />

he adds. “I think of Westlake things, which are really funny or really dark, but<br />

could make your laugh your ass off. I’m not concerned with being really trendy<br />

or getting dark and noir just to do it. There’s enough dark stuff in police work<br />

without pushing it.”<br />

A native of upstate New York, Gleeson recalls “confounding my parents and<br />

teachers that I didn’t want to be a doctor or lawyer, and they thought I was<br />

crazy.” Although they suggested he write and draw as a hobby, he stuck to his<br />

guns and wound up studying at the ArtCenter College of Design.<br />

He moved back to New York City after graduating, launching a career as<br />

a graphic designer and meeting his wife before convincing her to flee the Big<br />

Apple’s harsh winters in favor of the California sun. He’s created an eclectic<br />

body of work ever since.<br />

“I’ve been a staff artist at other studios, and run my own — done design,<br />

concept work and all sorts of stuff,” he says. “I worked in films, TV, done toys,<br />

worked on theme parks and designed movie posters. I’ve done catalog drawings<br />

until I wanted to scream. There are only so many chairs you can draw for a<br />

newspaper. Anything I can do I did it, and here I am today still doing it.”<br />

Sunday’s event will team Gleeson with his friend and fellow author Odie<br />

Hawkins, the self-described “father of the Pan-African occult genre” who has<br />

written 37 novels of his own. The two recently teamed up at a Redondo Beach<br />

bookstore appearance to discuss Gleeson’s novels, and he hopes that they will<br />

be able to do many more events together.<br />

“I’m really excited by where it’s going,” says Gleeson. “I’d love to get them in<br />

the hands of a lot of people and see if they agree with me. I’m just a storyteller<br />

and I like bringing these regular characters to life. They’ve become people.<br />

“When you really invest the time in creating characters and situations, they<br />

take on a life of their own,” he adds. “I love this side of what I’m doing. I get approached<br />

like a different person doing this and that’s really cool to me. Nobody<br />

asks me to do the covers on my books and I’m delighted to see what somebody<br />

else does with them. I just really enjoy it.” ■<br />

Tony Gleeson will discuss his novels “It’s Her Fault” and “The Other Frank” with Odie Hawkins and sign the<br />

books at 7 p.m. Sunday at The Battery Books & Music, 26 S. Los Robles Ave., Pasadena. Admission is free.<br />

SOME PASADENA FAVORITES OFFER DISCOUNTED MENUS DURING RESTAURANT WEEK<br />

BY MICHAEL SPRAGUE<br />

Southern California foodies have until July 26 to experience<br />

some of the LA area’s most in-demand spots. Thanks to<br />

specially priced dineLA Restaurant Week menus, and the<br />

online reservation platform Open Table, some top-tier, four-star<br />

restaurants open their doors and books giving Angelenos a more<br />

accessible route to the culinary world.<br />

While Pasadena already has a host of affordable dining spots<br />

(looking at you Maquina Taco, 1274 N. Lake Ave., No. 1,<br />

Pasadena; (626) 365-1893; maquinataco.com; no alcohol/<br />

major cards accepted)), a number of local restaurants with<br />

more dollar icons next to their Yelp listings become an option<br />

during this celebration of culinary culture. Here are some of<br />

the Pasadena favorites you should check out before the deals<br />

disappear and you are stuck counting down the days until the<br />

winter dineLA event.<br />

Alexander’s Steakhouse<br />

It is hard for me to not bring up Alexander’s. They have a spot<br />

on my best happy hour list for much the same reason as they are<br />

getting a shout out here. Pasadena is fortunate enough to have<br />

one of the three Alexander’s locations. For context on just what<br />

a culinary heavyweight the Japanese influenced steakhouse is,<br />

its Silicon Valley counterpart has a Michelin star. The Pasadena<br />

location opened in 2015 after the committee that awards Michelin<br />

stars stopped awarding them to Los Angeles-based restaurants.<br />

With that context in mind, Alexander’s Restaurant Week menu<br />

does come at the highest cost of any on my list at $119, but for a<br />

six-course meal that features a beef tataki appetizer, along with<br />

a sweet braised pork belly doused in a pork aioli, garlic soy, and<br />

pickled daikon. Following the appetizers come the organic greens<br />

served with crab, lobster jelly, avocado and honey yuzu vinaigrette<br />

dressing. The next two courses are the shrimp chawanmushi<br />

and six-ounce New York strip of American Wagyu beef served in<br />

a bordelaise reduction with an herb salad accompaniment. The<br />

six courses are rounded out by a pistachio cake dessert served<br />

with matcha ice cream and a vegetable pistachio crumble. I know<br />

Alexander’s Restaurant Week offering hits the wallet harder than<br />

some of the other choices, but it is an opening to the upper echelon<br />

of the culinary world. Treat yourself to a lengthy, multicourse<br />

journey through some truly masterful flavors.<br />

ZELO GOURMET PIZZAS<br />

328 E. Foothill Blvd.Arcadia<br />

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

then in its infancy, understandably working the finer<br />

details of the menu. Gold praised the citrus brined<br />

chicken wings, calling them “heartier, stickier than<br />

the traditional double-cooked Indonesian bird.”<br />

Perhaps in a show of respect to Gold who was the<br />

arbiter of Los Angeles dining, the wings found their<br />

way to Bone Kettle’s lunch menu. For $20 Bone<br />

Kettle is offering a two-course lunch. The first<br />

course is a choice of the Gold-approved chicken<br />

wings or the spicy papaya salad made with bay<br />

scallops, finely shredded green papaya, mangoes,<br />

tomatoes, chili, cilantro, green beans and rounded<br />

out for texture with peanuts. For an entree they are<br />

offering diners a chance to experience their titular<br />

bone infusions with either the top sirloin or the<br />

ginger seared chicken, both accompanied by bone<br />

broth and noodles. They also have a vegan entree<br />

option — the crispy tempeh served with its own<br />

vegan broth and noodles.<br />

Beer & Claw<br />

Beer & Claw has earned my respect. Tucked<br />

away in Mills Alley, just off Green Street, the<br />

crustacean & cocktail-centric restaurant<br />

offers the shelled seafood options that we love<br />

to crack open, harkening back to our hunter<br />

gatherer roots. But unlike some similarly centric<br />

restaurants, they do it sans the plastic bibs and<br />

tablecloths like some of their counterparts. For<br />

Restaurant Week they are putting it all out there.<br />

Their pre-fixe three-course dinner and cocktail<br />

menu will run $59, and is packed full of seafood<br />

as well as non-oceanic options. For appetizers<br />

there’s a five oyster platter, loaded pork belly<br />

fries, a watermelon ahi salad, crab wontons, and<br />

a few more to choose from. For entrees you can<br />

select one of six options that include a ribeye<br />

and a cajun seafood platter. The standout of the<br />

entrees is the LobstaMozz, a decadent cheesy<br />

lobster shell covered in mozzarella and spices.<br />

Videos and pictures of the Lobstamozz have gone<br />

viral across food blogs this week, and for good<br />

reason; it must be seen to be believed. Their dinner<br />

menu wraps up with one of four dessert options: the<br />

honey bourbon strawberry shortcake is a summer<br />

dream with fresh whipped cream and honey<br />

bourbon drizzle. It is the refreshing ending that you<br />

deserve after burning calories cracking into those<br />

lobster shells.<br />

choices of some classics: pan fried chicken, a<br />

shrimp and vegetable pasta dish, and an open faced<br />

ribeye sandwich with onion rings. Dinner selections<br />

include a whitefish beurre blanc, filet mignonette,<br />

and a half-chicken with lemon sauce.<br />

STAY CALM<br />

ANXIETY OCCURS WHEN SOMEONE<br />

HAS A STRONG NEED TO PERFORM<br />

BUT FEARS FAILURE<br />

Dear Patti,<br />

I’m 18 and have to take the DMV road test in order to get my driver’s<br />

license. I passed the written exam but when I took the actual driving test last<br />

month I failed. It only took 25 minutes but it seemed like forever. I thought<br />

I was fully prepared. I’ve taken a driver’s prep course of over 50 hours with<br />

10 hours of night driving. As my family will attest, I’m a very good driver. I<br />

was just so nervous at the possibility of not getting my driver’s license that<br />

I didn’t pass, and as the appointment time for the re-test gets closer, I’m<br />

getting more and more apprehensive. I’m very independent and hate the idea<br />

of not being able to get around on my own. If I’m calm and focused and still<br />

unsuccessful, then maybe I need to practice more and take the test again, but<br />

if I fail because of my nerves I’m afraid it’s because of a destructive pattern.<br />

Do you have any suggestions on how to keep my composure?<br />

— Hannah<br />

Dear Hannah,<br />

You’re not alone in your angst about test-taking. Whether it’s a job interview,<br />

a school exam or an athletic competition, anxiety can occur when someone has<br />

a driving need to perform but becomes so afraid of failure that all their knowledge,<br />

experience and confidence flies out the window. Concentration can also<br />

be impacted by extreme stress, or following a traumatic event. Let’s say, for<br />

example, you and I visited a hospital emergency room and encountered a woman<br />

who’d just been in an accident. Imagine asking her to study trigonometry on the<br />

spot; while remembering her phone number and address might be challenging<br />

enough.<br />

When your anxiety level is so high that cognitive disruption (unclear thinking)<br />

occurs, it’s important to understand the causes. Let’s start with thinking of<br />

your body as a radio with three channels. One is a channel to all your thoughts,<br />

another channel is to your physical and emotional feelings in your body, and the<br />

third is all of your senses (smell, taste, sight, touch and hearing) that connect<br />

you to the outside world. Since it’s difficult to listen to three radio stations simultaneously,<br />

it’s important to focus on what each separate channel is communicating.<br />

First, let’s concentrate on your thoughts. Explore your worst fears; i.e., you<br />

don’t want to lose your independence. Face these thoughts, explore possible<br />

alternatives, and then turn that channel off. Don’t allow yourself to ruminate,<br />

especially during the test. Every time these frightening thoughts return, dismiss<br />

them by saying “I don’t need to scare myself.” Concentrate on how to demonstrate<br />

your driving skills and knowledge of traffic laws and stay focused in present<br />

time.<br />

I’d recommend driving to the DMV road test site a few days before the exam.<br />

Sit in your car in the parking lot and focus on the second channel, your physical<br />

and emotional feelings. Imagine yourself getting in line to take the test. Do you<br />

have physical anxiety symptoms such as knots or butterflies in your stomach,<br />

racing heartbeat, shallow breathing or tense muscles? Are you experiencing feelings<br />

such as sadness or anger? If so, pay attention to these feelings and focus<br />

on your symptoms until they go away. Lie back, stretch out, close your eyes and<br />

breathe in and out, deeply and slowly. Count backwards from 10 to one, feeling<br />

the tension gently leave your body with each breath as you relax your feet and<br />

legs, your torso, your arms and hands and, lastly, your neck and head. When<br />

you’re completely relaxed, open your eyes and, again, imagine yourself taking<br />

the test. Repeat this relaxation exercise each time the anxiety returns until<br />

you’ve desensitized your fears and can easily visualize yourself confidently taking<br />

the test. Even under stress, you’ll be able to recall the knowledge and skills<br />

you know you have.<br />

Get a good night’s sleep the night before the exam. Don’t go on an empty stomach.<br />

Eat a light but healthy meal beforehand. Arrive early with your thoughts<br />

free of fear and worry, your body calm and relaxed. Stay focused on the third<br />

channel — giving full attention to your senses; stay in the present, and focus<br />

on the task at hand. How exciting for you to be taking this positive step toward<br />

independence and adulthood. Good luck n<br />

LOST NO MORE<br />

House passes Schiff amendment to add names of<br />

‘The Lost 74’ to Vietnam Veterans Memorial<br />

Seventy-four sailors who lost their lives on the<br />

USS Frank E. Evans during the Vietnam War will<br />

have their names added to the Vietnam Veterans<br />

Memorial in Washington, DC.<br />

“The Lost 74 died aboard the USS Frank E.<br />

Evans during the Vietnam War, and today the<br />

House took an important step to ensure their<br />

sacrifice is not forgotten,” said Rep. Adam Schiff<br />

(D-Burbank).<br />

Schiff announced on Friday that by a 220-197 vote the House of Representatives<br />

passed an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)<br />

instructing the Department of Defense to add the names of the memorial.<br />

On June 3, 1969 the American destroyer was struck by the HMAS Melbourne,<br />

an Australian aircraft carrier in the South China Sea, during a joint Southeast<br />

Asia Treaty Organization exercise called “Sea Spirit” at the time of the collision.<br />

Despite operating in Vietnamese waters immediately before deployment to the<br />

joint exercise, and a scheduled return to activities supporting the war effort<br />

after the exercise, it was determined that since the incident occurred outside the<br />

geographical limit for the combat zone the sailors who lost their lives were ineligible<br />

for inclusion on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.<br />

That conclusion did not acknowledge that at the time of the incident, the crew<br />

of the USS Evans was instrumental in advancing American military objectives in<br />

Vietnam and had participated in conflict just days before the collision.<br />

MEANINGFUL CELEBRATION<br />

HILARITY<br />

THE CLEAN COMEDY CHALLENGE<br />

GIVES FRESH TALENTS THE CHANCE<br />

TO BE CLEAN AND CLEVER FOR CASH<br />

BY CARL KOZLOWSKI<br />

Leslie Norris Townsend had been a<br />

longtime veteran standup comic<br />

when she decided to try out some<br />

new jokes at an open mic near her Ohio<br />

home a decade ago. Nearly every comic<br />

around her that night was performing<br />

dirty material, a fact that surprised her,<br />

considering the fact she knew that clean<br />

comedy was infinitely more valuable to<br />

a comedy career. .<br />

But that dispiriting evening inspired<br />

her to take a stand against the<br />

tide of onstage filth. She soon created<br />

the Clean Comedy Challenge (CCC), a<br />

twice-annual, three-day series of shows<br />

and seminars in which more than twodozen<br />

comics compete each night to<br />

take home a top prize of $1,000, while<br />

also engaging in seminars with veteran<br />

comics and writers during the day.<br />

The result has been a big success,<br />

with the CCC bringing clean, clever<br />

comedy to numerous cities nationwide.<br />

Its third go-round at the Ice House in<br />

Pasadena takes place Tuesday through<br />

next Thursday, with national headliner<br />

Bob Zany and former “Tonight Show”<br />

head writer Jimmy Brogan amid the<br />

judges and lecturers.<br />

“We ask people all over the country<br />

who have a desire to do standup to apply,<br />

whether it’s a club comic who wants<br />

to learn how to work clean, Christian<br />

comics wanting to learn how to be<br />

user-friendly in secular environments<br />

and work cruise ships and clubs ,” says<br />

Townsend, who notes that the Ice House<br />

was the first club ever to hire her officially<br />

as a comedian. “Clean comedy is<br />

the way to go to make a living. Corpora-<br />

tions want squeaky clean acts and for them<br />

to be politically correct also.”<br />

The CCC mainly attracts participants<br />

through announcements each January<br />

or February on its website, cleancomedychallenge.com.<br />

There are no auditions<br />

involved, and the first 25 people to apply<br />

and pay the fee ($400 for full participation<br />

in seminars and performing) are accepted.<br />

Participants perform three-minute<br />

sets each night, in shows that are judged<br />

by veteran comics, including Brogan and<br />

Zany, among others. The final night, on<br />

July 25, climaxes with the judges’ choice of<br />

winner for each of the three nights facing<br />

off alongside the audience-voted favorite.<br />

The daytime seminars include a jokewriting<br />

session led by legendary comedy<br />

writer Gene Perret, who spent decades<br />

as Bob Hope’s head writer before launching<br />

his own successful line of comedyteaching<br />

books. Other seminars cover<br />

career promotion and how to get booked<br />

in various formats of shows, in addition to<br />

the comics receiving in-depth critiques by<br />

the guest judges. Each evening features all<br />

25 comics performing a different threeminute<br />

set in front of a different panel of<br />

judges.<br />

“This allows everybody who has the desire<br />

to do comedy a shot at either realizing<br />

a dream, continuing a dream or possibly<br />

beginning the moment of a dream,” says<br />

Townsend. “It’s very exciting because everybody<br />

looks at comedy and thinks, ‘I can<br />

do that.’ It puts some meat on the bones<br />

because it’s not easy and this gives them<br />

three nights in a row to do stage time.<br />

“Each night ballots are tallied and three<br />

rise to the top, and there’s a cumulative<br />

score because each night we have different<br />

judges and so you have different eyes<br />

looking at the jokes,” she continues. “The<br />

ultimate goal is to pick someone who has<br />

originality, joke writing skills, stage presence<br />

and the overall star quality which is<br />

hard to define.”<br />

As the head writer for Jay Leno’s “The<br />

Tonight Show” from 1992 to 2000, Jimmy<br />

Brogan experienced the importance of<br />

clean yet funny comedy firsthand on a<br />

nightly basis. He has been a regular presence<br />

at the three Ice House editions of the<br />

CCC, serving as both a judge and seminar<br />

lecturer in addition to providing one on<br />

one critiques with the performers.<br />

“In past years, I sat down with Jan<br />

Smith the former comedy booker there,<br />

and went through everyone’s act and gave<br />

them feedback,” explains Brogan. “Some<br />

performers are new to comedy and some<br />

have been around and are looking to make<br />

it bigger. I saw one woman named Angie<br />

Stokes from Anchorage who came back<br />

to do it again, and she was phenomenal in<br />

year two after just trying it out the year<br />

before.<br />

“I always tell the comics that dirty<br />

comedy turns out not to be the choice<br />

that makes you feel good and that clean<br />

comedy is the choice that in the long run<br />

will make you more money because you<br />

can work any kind of event or TV show,” he<br />

adds. “It opens more doors than dirty. “<br />

“A lot of times this attracts a person<br />

who has it on their bucket list to do a pro<br />

comedy club, and being around better comics,<br />

you learn,” adds Townsend. “The challenge<br />

is when you add a contest element to<br />

it, it steps it up another notch. People bring<br />

their A -game, edit their jokes, and do a<br />

three-minute set.” n<br />

The Clean Comedy Challenge takes place at 8<br />

p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, and 7:30 p.m. next<br />

Thursday, July 25, at the Ice House, 24 N. Mentor<br />

‘UNHEARD LA’ PRESENTS ‘LETTERS TO OUR CITY’<br />

AT THE CRAWFORD FAMILY FORUM WEDNESDAY NIGHT<br />

PHOTO: Louis Felix/KPCC<br />

When the producers of<br />

KPCC’s “Unheard LA”<br />

recently invited Monterey<br />

Park resident Mike Sonksen<br />

to host an event in their space, he<br />

had no shortage of fellow artists<br />

and storytellers to call to join a<br />

celebration of LA’s diverse communities<br />

and pockets of wonder.<br />

He says he and the show’s team<br />

were “already on the same wavelength”<br />

so things gelled quickly<br />

for the show, which takes place<br />

at the Crawford Family Forum<br />

Wednesday night.<br />

The “good friends and great<br />

wordsmiths” who will join<br />

Sonksen onstage include two of<br />

his former high school students,<br />

literary siblings Dante and<br />

Monique Mitchell, as well as<br />

fellow poet/tour guide Armond<br />

Kinard, L.A. Taco editor Daniel<br />

Hernandez, NAACP Image<br />

Award-nominated novelist and<br />

lawyer Natashia Deón, author/actor/activist<br />

traci kato-kiriyama,<br />

Monrovia poet Luivette Resto,<br />

“StoryPhile” host Lee Boek, freelance<br />

writer Esther Tseng, and<br />

Highland Park poets Sara Borjas<br />

and Rocío Carlos. Terry Robinson,<br />

aka hip-hopper Hymnal, will<br />

perform his surrealist poetry,<br />

and Sonksen also invited El<br />

Monte-based saxophonist Adrian<br />

Ramon, a longtime collaborator<br />

with whom he plans to perform<br />

a piece.<br />

They named the event “Letters<br />

to Our City,” he says, “because<br />

the city is ours.”<br />

It also links thematically to<br />

“Letters to My City,” a book of<br />

poems and essays that Sonksen,<br />

a third-generation Angeleno,<br />

published earlier this year. It’s<br />

an open-hearted love song to<br />

his native city, with poems like<br />

“Garvey Avenue From Alhambra<br />

to El Monte,” “Ode to the Los<br />

Angeles River,” “Arrival Stories,”<br />

and “Los Angeles: The Land<br />

of 1000 Dances” that delight<br />

in the history and surprises<br />

found in neighborhoods, streets,<br />

and individual citizens across<br />

LA. Homage is paid to literary<br />

inspirations like Chester Himes<br />

and Luis J. Rodriguez, and “LA<br />

Authors,” one of Sonksen’s signature<br />

poems, reappears in slightly<br />

altered form from what was seen<br />

in his 2006 collection “I Am Alive<br />

in Los Angeles!”<br />

That earlier book’s titular<br />

poem also gets updated, as “I<br />

Am Still Alive in Los Angeles!,”<br />

with shout-outs to “millennials<br />

on bicycles” and “angels in a<br />

city singing/ synchronicity from<br />

Central to Century City.” “Elegy<br />

to Rootdown & Firecracker,” a<br />

key essay, passionately evokes<br />

the late-’90s club scene, when<br />

the Rootdown, Firecracker and<br />

the Chocolate Bar fostered the<br />

synergistic spirit of the “Millennial<br />

Los Angeles hip-hop, funk,<br />

soul underground.”<br />

“People, music, vibes, beats,<br />

bass, life,” he writes. “A generation<br />

of us can testify, it’s been an<br />

amazing ride.”<br />

In the intervening years,<br />

Sonksen has become a husband,<br />

parent and professor, and he<br />

now writes journalistic essays as<br />

often as poems. “Letters to My<br />

City” reflects his life and worldview<br />

now, and the “Letters to Our<br />

City” event represents the community<br />

that inspired his personal<br />

and literary evolution.<br />

“The book is about living your<br />

values or living your ethics,” he<br />

says.<br />

“Everybody’s sharing the city<br />

together, [and] everyone’s story<br />

matters.” n<br />

Unheard LA presents “Letters to Our<br />

City” with host Mike Sonksen and fellow<br />

wordsmiths 7:30-9 p.m. Wednesday, July<br />

24, at the Crawford Family Forum, 474 S.<br />

Charismatic frontman Eric Burton and producer/<br />

ex-Grupo Fantasma guitarist Adrian Quesada, plus<br />

guest players, put a cosmic spin on matters of the<br />

heart with tracks like “Black Moon Rising,” the<br />

hypnotic “Sweet Conversations” and “Confines”<br />

(“We all shine then burn over/ Like the stars in<br />

the night/ So cast a dream and watch it glide”).<br />

Valley native Burton, who busked in Santa Monica<br />

before landing in Austin in 2015, is reminiscent<br />

of D’Angelo and Terence Trent D’Arby, gritty yet<br />

sweet, and while Quesada’s lyrics can be obtuse his<br />

fretwork and production are spot-on in evoking the<br />

mystique as well as the open-hearted passion of<br />

’60s-’70s soul. theblackpumas.com<br />

JENNY TOLMAN, There Goes the<br />

Neighborhood (Old Sol): HHH<br />

The native Nashvillean is strongly reminiscent of<br />

Brandy Clark throughout her cheerful, twanging<br />

album debut. Tolman’s soft vocal tone magnifies<br />

her generosity of spirit even when she’s nailing<br />

characters with sharp details on snappy songs like<br />

“Work It” (“I’m just a coupon clipper with a push-up<br />

bra”), “High Class White Trash” and the amusing<br />

title track. Her melodic style and playful metaphors<br />

evoke traditional country, although “My Welcome<br />

Mat” stands as a contemporary anthem of tolerance<br />

(“In my living room ain’t no one out of place”).<br />

RIYL Clark, Kacey Musgraves and Elizabeth Cook.<br />

GEORGIA ANNE MULDROW, Vweto II (Mello<br />

Music): HH½<br />

The category-defying singer/composer/producer<br />

veers from the more melodic songcraft of<br />

last year’s “Overload” with this experimental<br />

collection of spacey instrumentals, a sequel to<br />

her 2011 album. Sticky beats and textures make<br />

its 16 tracks aurally intriguing from a production<br />

standpoint; much of their chill allure lies in<br />

tracing and decipering interlaced funk, hip-hop,<br />

jazz and R&B elements. But it’s a rather esoteric<br />

exercise, and not recommended for anyone<br />

operating heavy machinery. Apropos of the gravity<br />

referenced in the Swahili title, it gets pretty heavy.<br />

A gut-satisfying from veteran guitarist Harry Manx<br />

chestnuts by Charlie Patton and the Staple Singers.<br />

Manx threads Marriner’s swampy title track with<br />

his mohan veena, a 20-stringed Indian lap slide<br />

instrument whose ethereal tones enhance the<br />

song’s account of spiritual search and reckoning<br />

behind Marriner’s gritty vocal. Other highlights<br />

include the Canadian duo’s moving ballad “Rise and<br />

Fall in Love” and a take on Rev. Gary Davis’ “Death<br />

Don’t Have No Mercy in This Land” that’s heavy<br />

on slide, vibe, and feel. stonyplainrecords.com,<br />

BY CARL KOZLOWSKI<br />

‘King’ of the Multiplex<br />

DISNEY UNLEASHES ITS CGI REBOOT OF ANIMATED ‘LION KING’<br />

There is no greater king in the family-film world<br />

these days than Disney, as the entertainment<br />

behemoth has snapped up everything from Marvel<br />

superhero films to the Muppets, and from the “Star<br />

Wars” universe to 20th Century Fox in recent years.<br />

Add in Pixar, ABC TV, ESPN and the nationwide Radio<br />

Disney network and there doesn’t seem to be a single<br />

overlooked opportunity to shake down families for their<br />

money.<br />

But two years ago, they indeed opened another vault<br />

by deciding to bring their line-drawn animated classics<br />

to CGI or actual real life when a live-action reboot of<br />

“Beauty and the Beast” brought in well over a billion<br />

dollars worldwide. Since then, they’ve followed suit<br />

with this summer’s smash live-action take on “Aladdin”<br />

and flew to just middling success with “Dumbo,” but<br />

now they’re poised to make their biggest hit yet in the<br />

new genre with this weekend’s release of the CGI version<br />

of “The Lion King.”<br />

Directed by Jon Favreau, who scored hugely with his<br />

2016 live-action/CGI hybrid of “The Jungle Book,” this<br />

“Lion” appears to bring its African setting to stunning<br />

life despite the fact it’s entirely crafted on computer<br />

screens. The new version opens with an African<br />

woman’s voice singing the classic opening song “Circle<br />

of Life” in place of its songwriter Elton John’s version<br />

in the original, but it’s effective in making it clear that<br />

this version strives to be more realistic on the voiceover<br />

level as well.<br />

The story follows young lion cub Simba (Donald<br />

Glover), who is announced as the future heir to the<br />

throne of his father Mufasa, and wants to grow up fast.<br />

He takes the advice of his evil uncle Scar (Chiwetel Ejiofor)<br />

and visits the elephant graveyard over the horizon<br />

with his best friend and future mate Nala (Beyonce),<br />

despite his father telling him it’s a forbidden zone.<br />

Mufasa has to save the young pair from an attack<br />

by hyenas, yet later Simba follows Scar’s bad advice<br />

20 PASADENA WEEKLY | <strong>07.18.19</strong><br />

again and practices his roar in a canyon that echoes.<br />

The noise prompts a stampede of cows being chased<br />

by evil hyenas again, and when Mufasa is endangered<br />

while trying to save his son, Scar causes his death in a<br />

vicious betrayal and then convinces Simba that he’s at<br />

fault instead.<br />

Simba runs away in shame for many years, teaming<br />

up with a new duo of irresponsible friends named<br />

Pumbaa (Seth Rogen) and Timon (Billy Eichner), who<br />

try to convince him that the happiest way to live is by<br />

shirking all responsibilities. But when Nala finds him<br />

years later while seeking help to rid the kingdom of<br />

Scar, Simba is forced to take a stand that carries a great<br />

deal of consequences.<br />

The film follows the storyline of the 1994 original<br />

closely, but with an extra half-hour in its running time<br />

the story adds depth to the characters and provides the<br />

time needed to make its impressive action sequences<br />

achieve maximum impact. In fact, the one warning<br />

parents of young children should take heed is that the<br />

battles between the lions and the chase scenes with the<br />

hyenas in frenzied pursuit of the film’s young heroes<br />

might prove to be too much for younger children.<br />

Yet, there’s plenty of great comic relief with Rogen<br />

and Eichner perfectly filling in the roles of the mischievous<br />

Pumbaa and Timon,and John Oliver taking on the<br />

wise bird Zazu. In a perfect nod to the original cartoon,<br />

James Earl Jones reprises the role of Mufasa and gives<br />

him perhaps even more regal class and fury than he<br />

managed to perform a quarter-century ago.<br />

It’s almost impossible to find anything wrong with<br />

the film, continuing the Disney brand’s tradition of technical<br />

perfection matched with a heartfelt tale. They may<br />

have a glut of product in the marketplace, but they take<br />

the time to make their films at the highest possible level<br />

and audiences are ultimately the winners. n<br />

WORKSHOP<br />

PROJECT TITLE: Holly Street<br />

Bridge Seismic Retrofi t Project<br />

APPLICANT NAME: City of Pasadena<br />

PROJECT SITE ADDRESS: Holly<br />

Street Bridge over Arroyo Seco<br />

Flood Control Channel (southeast<br />

of Linda Vista Avenue)<br />

ZONING DISTRICT: ROW, OS-<br />

Open Space, RM-Multi-Family<br />

Residential, and RS-Single-Family<br />

Residential<br />

GENERAL PLAN DESIGNATION:<br />

Low Density Residential, Medium<br />

Density Residential, Open Space<br />

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:. The City<br />

of Pasadena, in coordination with<br />

the California Department of Transportation<br />

(Caltrans), proposes to<br />

rehabilitate and seismically retrofi t<br />

the existing two-lane Holly Street<br />

Bridge (No. 53C1041) over the<br />

Arroyo Seco Channel, the Arroyo<br />

Seco Trail (a Class 1 multi-use<br />

trail), and North Arroyo Boulevard.<br />

The seismic retrofi t would occur on<br />

the Holly Street Bridge southeast<br />

of Linda Vista Avenue, and entirely<br />

within the City of Pasadena, Los<br />

Angeles County, California. The<br />

existing bridge was constructed<br />

in 1925 and is 45.3-feet wide by<br />

400.0-feet long. The bridge is a<br />

concrete arch-deck span constructed<br />

from cast-in-place concrete.<br />

According to the Caltrans<br />

Bridge Inspection Report (BIR), the<br />

bridge currently (July 2016) holds<br />

a suffi ciency rating of 39.4 and is<br />

classifi ed as Structurally Defi cient.<br />

The proposed Project would provide<br />

needed rehabilitation and<br />

a seismic retrofi t to the existing<br />

bridge. Bridge retrofi t and<br />

rehabilitation would include a<br />

deck and barrier replacement,<br />

luminaire replacement, archway<br />

stiffening, joint strengthening,<br />

column strengthening, pier cap<br />

strengthening, retrofi t foundation<br />

hold-downs, concrete spall repair,<br />

crack sealing, and a bonded grout<br />

treatment. Construction is estimated<br />

to last for approximately 18<br />

months, and the Holly Street Bridge<br />

would be closed to vehicle and pedestrian<br />

traffi c for approximately<br />

9 months. The City plans to offer<br />

a detour route using Linda Vista<br />

Avenue, San Rafael Avenue, Colorado<br />

Boulevard, and Orange Grove<br />

Boulevard.<br />

ENVIRONMENTAL DETERMINA-<br />

TION: An Initial Study was prepared<br />

and concluded that the Proposed<br />

Project could have a signifi cant<br />

effect on the environment; however,<br />

with inclusion of mitigation<br />

measures, these potential impacts<br />

would be reduced to a less than<br />

signifi cant level. Therefore, the<br />

City has prepared a Mitigated<br />

Negative Declaration.<br />

HAZARDOUS MATERIALS:<br />

The project site is not listed on any<br />

hazardous materials or waste databases<br />

pursuant to Section 65962.5<br />

of the Government Code.<br />

PUBLIC WORKSHOP: During the<br />

public review period, the City will<br />

provide additional information<br />

and answer any questions on the<br />

project in general, or regarding<br />

the fi ndings and conclusion provided<br />

proposed project and any public<br />

comments received during the<br />

public review period and make a<br />

decision if the City should adopt<br />

the Mitigated Negative Declaration<br />
