SOUNDING THE ALARM

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

Donald Trump, the candidate

who called Mexican immigrants

“rapists” on the campaign trail,

is now the leader of a regime

running concentration camps at

the border. This past weekend,

ICE agents were to conduct

raids in nine cities, including Los

Angeles, making good on Trump’s

threat to detain and deport

millions of immigrants.

The vicious attack on

immigrants is the spearhead of

a larger fascist program by the

Trump/Pence regime to radically

remake society: civil liberties are

stripped away and group after

group is demonized on a road that

leads to unspeakable horrors.

Millions of people want this

to stop. But stopping Trump

and Pence will take more than

wishing something would change,

or voicing our outrage on social

media. People will have to step

outside of their comfort zones.

They will have to put something

on the line.

Alex Hernandez and Chantelle

Hershberger are two people who

did just that. On two separate

mornings in 2017, they stepped

out onto the 101 Freeway, holding

signs and blocking traffic to

inspire people to take to the

streets in nonviolent protest

against the Trump/Pence regime.

Chantelle moved to Los

Angeles from Ohio just before

Trump’s election. It bothered

her that after each outrage and

protest, people just seemed to

go home and normalize what the

regime was doing. When asked

about why she joined the freeway

action, she said, “It’s one thing to

talk about how wrong it is that a

white supremacist is in the White

House, and to even recognize

the danger that ensues when you

have the president backing these

angry mobs of white supremacist

militias. But it’s another thing

when you understand that this

is vital to consolidating fascism.

You need to incite fear among the

masses. So then I had to decide.

What was I going to do about it?”

Alex grew up in South Central

Los Angeles and saw firsthand the

widespread violence of the police

against black and brown people.

After Trump’s election, he saw

the extreme danger of a fascist

regime at the helm of the most

powerful country and military

in the world. He took part in the

freeway action because of what

was going on in society at the

time. “A year and a half ago, think

of what the Trump/Pence regime

was doing... threatening North

Korea with nuclear war, banning

Muslims, restricting trans people

from the military. We did this to

sound the alarm against fascism.

Those were not normal times. And

now, look at all the children in

concentration camps, and lawyers

for the Justice Department saying

that migrant children don’t need

toothbrushes, beds, anything

sanitary... All these things have

consequences. This is the logic

that leads to genocide.”

Last month, prosecutors

lost their case against Alex and

Chantelle when the trial ended in

a hung jury. They tried to frame

their case as a simple traffic

violation, despite the fact that

the charges were brought by the

highly political Major Crimes/Anti-

Terrorist Division of the LAPD, a

division with a sordid history of

spying on activist groups.

Alex and Chantelle spoke in

court about why they risked their

lives to block the freeway, and

moved several jurors to refuse to

convict. But immediately after

a mistrial was announced, the

Chantelle and Alex fl ank Damon Alimouri,

one of their defense attorneys, in

front of the Metro Court in downtown LA.

prosecution vowed to retry the

case. By doing this, they join

nationwide efforts to criminalize

protest in the wake of Trump’s

election and become enforcers of

the fascist suppression of dissent.

Through aggressive policing and

prosecution, and anti-protest

bills either passed or proposed in

35 states, a fundamental right is

under serious threat. We should

never forget Trump’s statement

from the campaign trail that

he longed for the days when

protesters were carried out on

stretchers.

These courageous activists

stood up against a fascist

regime before many people

recognized that it was fascism.

Videos of the freeway actions

went viral, showing millions of

people the kind of resistance

that was needed. Supporting

Alex and Chantelle and the

rest of the freeway protesters,

calling the City Attorney Mike

Feuer’s office and signing

this petition to demand that

they drop the charges, and

filling the courtroom when

their trial starts on July 25,

goes a long way in refusing

to accept a fascist America.

Many supporters of Alex and

Chantelle have chosen to stand

on the right side of history. We

invite you to join us. ■

THE RACE TO SPACE

THE APOLLO 11 MOON LANDING WAS A VICTORY FOR DEMOCRATIC SOCIALISM

This is the week that we celebrate the first human landing on the moon. Credit will

be taken by many different interests for their role in this great human achievement.

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

today’s hotly contested Democratic primary race. NASA’s landing on the moon

was a demonstration of successful application of Democratic Socialism — a much

discussed matter in Democratic circles these days.

Curiously, this democratic socialist concept of NASA had its origins under

Republican President Dwight Eisenhower.

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

World War II power left unscathed by the fighting. After the war we captured the

majority of the Nazi rocket scientists, including Wernher von Braun who oversaw

the development and manufacture of the infamous V-2 rockets at Peenemunde, the

secret Nazi rocket-testing site. There von Braun supervised concentration camp

prisoners who produced the rockets that flew across the English Channel to attack

our British allies.

Von Braun’s team of German rocket scientists were brought to the US and

re-established at a secret Army base near Huntsville, Alabama. Concurrently, the

Soviet Union, our World War II ally, developed its own atomic and thermonuclear

weapons. The arms race was on.

Military thinking at the time held that new delivery systems had to be developed

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

the US Air Force, first developed the B-36, then the B-47, and finally the B-52

intercontinental bombers as nuclear weapon delivery systems. The ultimate goal

was to deliver the weapons by ballistic missiles from North America to potential

adversaries in Europe and Asia, in particular the Soviet Union and the Peoples

Republic of China.

The task of developing effective intercontinental ballistic missile delivery

systems was pursued competitively between the US Air Force with its Navaho

rocket, the Navy with its Vanguard, and the Army with its Redstone missile system.

Each agency attempted to launch an Earth-orbiting satellite — a clear indication of

ballistic launch capability. Each military branch failed repeatedly. The competitive

approach failed.

In 1956, the Soviet Union successfully launched Sputnik — the first Earthorbiting

spacecraft. A short week later they successfully launched Sputnik II, which

carried Laika, a dog, thereby demonstrating the successful creation of habitability

in space.

President Eisenhower recognized that the three competing military branches

had failed in launching an Earth-orbiting spacecraft. He then led the development

of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). A democratically

elected Congress passed the legislation. The taxpayers made a social investment

of capital to carry out a national objective, making NASA a Democratic Socialist

success.

After NASA’s establishment, the Soviet Union continued to have leadership in the

space race but NASA was slowly gaining.

The Cuban missile crisis of 1962 brought the world close to nuclear disaster.

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

its short-range missiles from Cuba. Shortly thereafter, US missiles threatening the

Soviet Union were withdrawn from our NATO ally Turkey. The nuclear superpowers

had stepped back from the brink, but the danger of nuclear brinkmanship remained.

To reorient the dangerous competition for nuclear weapon superiority, President

Kennedy proposed a national goal of landing humans on the moon. Although the

Soviet Union never formally accepted the competition, it carried out a competitive

lunar effort.

Kennedy entrusted the Apollo program to NASA, the same democratic socialist

enterprise that had orbited Explorer I, America’s first Earth-orbiting spacecraft,

which was developed at Pasadena’s NASA facility, Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

Fifty years ago this week we celebrate the Apollo 11 spacecraft landing on the

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

not put humans on the moon. That was accomplished by a democratic socialist

endeavor called NASA, which was established under a Republican president. ■

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

political leader since the mid-1980s.

In 1985, Chu was elected to the Garvey School District

Board of Education. From there, she won a seat on the Monterey

Park City Council, where she served as mayor three times.

By the turn of the century, Chu entered state politics, winning

a seat in the state Assembly in 2001.

After terming out of that office, with her husband Mike Eng,

who had taken over his wife’s seat on the Monterey Park City

Council and then won her Assembly seat, Chu was elected to the

State Board of Equalization in 2006.

In 2009, the former junior college psychology professor

became the first Chinese-American woman elected to Congress

when she won the special election that year for the then-32nd

Congressional District after then-Congresswoman and now-LA

County Supervisor Hilda Solis was appointed Secretary of Labor

by President Barack Obama.

In a packed field, Chu finished first with 32 percent of the vote,

easily defeating Republican rival Betty Chu in the runoff election,

capturing 62 percent of the vote in that race.

Since then, Chu has won re-election five times with at least

60 percent of the vote in four of those contests. Three of those

victories have come against perennial Republican candidate Jack

Orswell.

BY ANDRÉ COLEMAN

Since 2012, Chu has been representing Pasadena and the West

San Gabriel Valley that with redistricting that year became the

27th District.

Currently, the 66-year-old lawmaker serves on the powerful House

Ways and Means Committee, which has filed a lawsuit to obtain

President Trump’s long-sought tax documents. The Ways and Means

Committee also has jurisdiction over legislation pertaining to Social

Security and Medicare.

On that committee, Chu is a member of its subcommittees on

Health and Human Resources, Worker and Family Support, and

Oversight, giving her responsibility for issues related to health care

reform and safety net programs.

In April, Chu and Republican Congressman Devin Nunes

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

Sunshine for Samples Act.

This bill would amend the Sunshine Act to require drug

manufacturers to publicly make available the number and value

of free drug samples given to health care providers and charities

annually.

Chu also serves on the House Small Business Committee, which

has oversight of the Small Business Administration, and is the chair of

the Subcommittee on Investigations, Oversight and Regulations.

She has also worked to bring two full-service small business

PURPOSE

DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL

FRONTRUNNER JOE BIDEN TO

VISIT PASADENA FRIDAY

Pasadena City Councilman

John Kennedy, in what he

is calling an effort to bring

“prepared, competent,

relevant and sane leadership

to the White House,”

will welcome Democratic

presidential frontrunner

Joe Biden to his home

Joe Biden

on Friday, July 19, for a

lunchtime fundraiser.

“I have known Joe Biden for over 30 years,”

said Kennedy, who represents Pasadena’s

District 3. “So it is with an abundance of history

and respect … as well as personal affection that

I am hosting Vice President Biden at an intimate

lunch gathering.”

Biden is currently the frontrunner in the

crowded field of Democratic candidates. His

poll numbers have taken a hit in the weeks since

fellow candidate and California Sen. Kamala

Harris criticized his opposition to 1970s-era

school busing policies as a US senator and

his comments on working with segregationist

senate colleagues, for which he subsequently

apologized.

Those expected to attend the event at Kennedy’s

home include his sister Lena L. Kennedy

and District 6 City Councilman Steve Madison.

On June 29, Harris spoke at a private fundraiser

at the West Pasadena home of Tamerlin

Godley, who is running for Madison’s District 6

council seat.

Biden’s visit to Pasadena follows those of

several other Democratic presidential candidates

in recent weeks. On May 30, New York Sen.

Kirsten Gillibrand spoke at the Women’s City

Club of Pasadena. On May 31, Vermont Sen. Bernie

Sanders held a political rally at the Pasadena

Convention Center and he, Harris, former Housing

and Urban Development Secretary Julián

Castro and Washington Gov. Jay Inslee participated

in the first presidential forum focused on

immigration at the Pasadena Hilton.

Fellow presidential candidate Mayor Pete

Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana is also reportedly

finalizing plans to stump in Pasadena.

Candidates are making sure to show up

in California because the state has moved its

primary election date up from June to March

3, also known as Super Tuesday. The earlier

date — after only Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada

and South Carolina — will ensure that California

voters and the state’s nearly 500 delegates

play a decisive role in determining the eventual

nominee.

POLICE ARREST FIVE IN CONNECTION

WITH ALLEGED SCHEME TO STEAL

ELDERLY CANCER PATIENT’S MONEY

AFTER GETTING HIM DRUNK

BY ANDRÉ COLEMAN

Victor Cass

Pasadena police have arrested five people on suspicion of

stealing $24,000 from a recovering alcoholic and cancer patient after allegedly getting

him intoxicated.

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

Pasadena after police officers serving a search warrant found evidence allegedly linking

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

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

Arrested June 26 on suspicion of elder financial abuse and grand theft were Billy

Burton, 63, Griselda “Gracie” Patterson, 48, and her daughter Adriana Patterson, 22,

all of Los Angeles. Antwan Havard, 25 and also of Los Angeles, was also arrested on

suspicion of elder financial abuse and grand theft.

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

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

Authorities say the group also unsuccessfully attempted to bilk the unidentified

man out of an additional $54,000.

“The Pasadena Police Department takes seriously any and all allegations of elder

financial abuse,” said Detective Victor Cass in a prepared statement. Cass led the

investigation and the arrest of the five suspects.

“These kinds of crimes target our community’s most trusting and vulnerable

senior population,” Cass said.

Burton and the elder Patterson remain in custody in Los Angeles County Jail on

$70,000 and $50,000 bail, respectively. Adriana Patterson and Havard have posted

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

for Shields was not immediately available.

Police say Burton, Havard and the Pattersons would consume alcohol with the

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

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

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

rent motel rooms.

The suspects were arrested after Cass received a call from the Pasadena Federal

Credit Union, where the transactions occurred.

After reviewing surveillance video, online purchase receipts, bank records and interviewing

witnesses, Cass notified the credit union to contact him when the suspects

returned.

According to police, all but Shields have confessed. n

‘VULNERABLE TO

EVICTION’

CITY ANNOUNCES MODIFICATIONS TO

TENANT PROTECTION ORDINANCE

BY ANDRÉ COLEMAN

Modifications to the city’s tenant protection ordinance

(TPO), designed to provide greater protections for local

renters facing eviction, went into effect late last week,

according to a statement issued by city officials.

The ordinance, which was adopted in 2004 and amended in 2017, requires

landlords to provide relocation benefits to qualified tenants facing eviction.

“This is important to those Pasadena renters who are feeling vulnerable to

William Huang

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

in their apartments, but it provides those who are eligible a reasonable relocation

payment.”

Under the modifications, the ordinance now covers tenants if they are evicted 18

months after the property changes owners.

Pasadena rents are among the highest in the state, with some one-bedroom

apartments renting at nearly $3,000 a month.

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

landlords have raised the rent by hundreds of dollars. Local housing advocates,

including the Pasadena Tenant Justice Coalition, have been pushing for rent control,

but so far the City Council has had no public discussions on the issue.

The ordinance also requires landlords to pay relocation benefits to displaced

tenants if the building is demolished, converted to condominiums, or permanently

removed from the rental market.

Tenants evicted so landlords or their family members can take occupancy of the

unit are also eligible for relocation fees, as are tenants forced to move under orders

by the government to vacate and tenants evicted from housing owned by educational

institutions under certain situations.

Multifamily rental properties with two or more units on a single parcel are subject

to the ordinance. Single-family homes and condominium units are exempt.

To be eligible for relocation benefits, tenants must be in good standing, with

incomes not exceeding 140 percent of the Los Angeles County area median

income. n

Pasadena City College and the other at the University

of Laverne. She reintroduced House Resolution 448, the

Women’s Health Protection Act, which would protect a

woman’s right to safe and legal abortion.

Most recently she inspected conditions at migrant

camps located in Texas along the border with Mexico.

“We saw children locked up behind steel doors,” Chu

said. “There was a toddler that looked miserable. When

we waved to him he pressed his face against the door,

hoping to get out. It broke my heart.”

Pasadena Weekly recently caught up with Chu,

who spoke about conditions in those camps, and other

issues facing the nation.

PW: You just visited the migrant detention centers

in Texas. What did you see there?

Chu: I was appalled and disgusted. It was a

congressional delegation. We went to El Paso and

we talked to a group of women in cinder block cells

who immediately had tears streaming down their

faces. They were miserable and had no idea when

they were getting out. They have been separated from

their children. One woman had epilepsy. There is no

running water, and some of them had been asking for

medication. There is no running water, and they were

told to drink out of the toilet bowl.

Then we went to the Clint Border Patrol Station,

where they house the unaccompanied minors. There

were 106 kids there. At one point 700 kids were there.

There is also a warehouse where there were 100 to

200 kids at one time. Imagine a giant steel garden shed

that has no air conditioning, in an area where it’s is

over 100 degrees. We could only be in there for a short

period of time.

What can be done about this?

A judge dictates what should go on in this facility.

He has ordered they come up with a solution. I am

pressing on with demands for change. I did not vote

for the bill that passed. I have great concerns about

accountability. The second version did not have

standard of care that was in the first version; it didn’t

include anything about hygiene and nutrition, It

should have a provision that money should only go to

the intended target and a 90-day limit for the minors

to remain in these places. Congressmen should be

able to go in unannounced, so the centers cannot be

sterilized. They tried to do that with us.

Where do you stand on impeachment?

I believe the president committed impeachable

actions. I want to make sure the American public is with

us on this. If we start the process, then all of America

will be focused on it. What America needs to know is the

ultimate goal cannot be accomplished with Republicans

in charge. Unless there was enough pressure on

Republicans we could have a frustrated public and a

president who claims he has triumphed. I think Mueller’s

testimony will be very, very important. For the people to

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

report, that is very, very valuable.

What are your thoughts on the first two debates?

The debates were fascinating. I would say in the first

debates Elizabeth Warren and Julian Castro stood out,

and in the second one Kamala Harris and Pete Buttigieg

stood out.

Is the country ready for a woman president?

Why not? I think we have many excellent qualified

candidates.

How much damage would a citizenship question

on the census do? (Editor’s note: The president

dropped his effort to get the question on the census

and has now ordered all federal agencies to

compile information on illegal immigrants living

in the country.)

I think they have already done damage because

they have put this issue out there. Some people may

think this question is on the census, even if it’s not,

and avoid the census. Pasadena is in serious danger

of an under count. We have to make sure there is a

complete count. That is very important.

How important is the health care issue?

This is the number one issue for Americans.

We have worked overtime to make our health

care system affordable and to make sure it is for

everybody. We should move closer to a universal

system. I have cosponsored Medicare for all.

I’m for a public option that could compete with

private plans. People would flock to it. I am a huge

proponent of lowering prescription drug prices. A

month’s supply of insulin in my district costs $665.

Yet, in Australia, it’s $28. Why is it if you cross

the border it is one-tenth of the cost? Countless

constituents are considering going to Canada and

Mexico for medicine. It’s outrageous that Americans

are in this position. I co-authored a Ways and

Means bill, Sunshine for Samples, to address this

issue and to put transparency on the costs of drug

samples. Companies spend more on drug samples

and commercials than they do on research and

development. Samples of oxycontin may have led to

the opioid crisis.

Are we headed for another war in the Middle East?

I am very worried and concerned the president

will drag us into another war. He got us out of the

nuclear deal and now Iran is building up its arsenal.

It’s a very troubling situation. I am opposed to him

using the 2001 authorization (for use of military

force) as his excuse to go to war. Every president

has to have approval by Congress. He has to have a

new authorization by Congress.

Is there anything you want to say to your

Pasadena constituents?

I have been fighting to get a veterans health care

clinic in the San Gabriel Valley for seven years.

Finally we got one opened on May 20, in Arcadia.

Previously vets had to take long trips to Los Angeles,

West Los Angeles or Loma Linda to get medical care.

It is a full service facility and a bigger one is going to

open in three to five years. We are going to have the

grand opening on Aug. 2. If anyone wants details on

the facility, they can call my office. n

BY CARL KOZLOWSKI

Tony Gleeson has built a nearly 50-year career

in illustration and graphic design for major

book publishers, including Doubleday’s

science fiction division, and countless

publications, such as the Los Angeles Times.

He’s also created numerous cover images for the

Pasadena Weekly.

Yet, he’s also managed the incredible feat of

maintaining another thriving career as the author

of a murder mystery series centered on the procedural

investigations of a group of police in the

Personal Crimes Unit of a fictional West Coast

metropolis.

While his seven novels have first been published

in England as part of the Linford Mystery

Library series, he’s had three of the books republished

in the US by Wildside Press. The latest,

combining two novels following the adventures

of Detective Frank Vandegraf called “It’s Her

Fault” and “The Other Frank,” will be the focus

of a discussion and signing event Sunday at The

Battery Books & Music store in Pasadena.

“I’ve been doing a lot of writing for many

years, mainly nonfiction, but I had several different

kinds of fiction pieces I put together and

this happens to be what someone was interested

in a few years ago,” explains Gleeson. “The first

murder mystery I’d written, ‘Night Music,’ started

with the idea of what would you do if you had

eight people die in one night and how would you

connect it.

“This publisher in the UK was particularly interested

in that, so I started writing more of them

and they’ve bought nine,” he continues. “It was

the luck of the draw. Somebody suggested I try

this particular agent in England and he was the

guy who liked it. That first book was published

at the end of 2015. I haven’t been over there, but

I’m doing the best I can to promote the American

editions here. It’s a good gig, because I like the

stories I’m coming up with and the characters and world I’ve created.”

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

the lead characters in the books. Gleeson notes that the different personalities of

each character give each book a different flavor, as Frank Vandegraf is stoic but

has a sense of humor that gives his adventures a lighter quality. Other characters

are “very serious and dedicated and their books are darker and more serious.”

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

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

into hiding after claiming he threatened to kill her. When the detective finds a

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

his efforts to locate the missing wife, his prime suspect — but when he does, the

case takes a bizarre turn.

In “The Other Frank,” Vandegraf hears of the unexpected death of his exwife

and travels to the tiny rural town of Easton to face the demons of his past.

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

sooner has he arrived than two bizarre, violent deaths occur, leading him to feel

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

out of his jurisdiction, obstructed by officials, and amidst folk hiding their own

secrets.

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

wrote 55 procedural mysteries under the name Ed McBain and was an incredible

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

had a lot of humanity in his books and definitely influenced how I approach

these procedurals.

“I also love Donald Westlake, who influenced the more amusing parts of my

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

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

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

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

without pushing it.”

A native of upstate New York, Gleeson recalls “confounding my parents and

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

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

guns and wound up studying at the ArtCenter College of Design.

He moved back to New York City after graduating, launching a career as

a graphic designer and meeting his wife before convincing her to flee the Big

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

body of work ever since.

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

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

worked on theme parks and designed movie posters. I’ve done catalog drawings

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

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

Sunday’s event will team Gleeson with his friend and fellow author Odie

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

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

bookstore appearance to discuss Gleeson’s novels, and he hopes that they will

be able to do many more events together.

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

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

and I like bringing these regular characters to life. They’ve become people.

“When you really invest the time in creating characters and situations, they

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

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

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

else does with them. I just really enjoy it.” ■

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

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

SOME PASADENA FAVORITES OFFER DISCOUNTED MENUS DURING RESTAURANT WEEK

BY MICHAEL SPRAGUE

Southern California foodies have until July 26 to experience

some of the LA area’s most in-demand spots. Thanks to

specially priced dineLA Restaurant Week menus, and the

online reservation platform Open Table, some top-tier, four-star

restaurants open their doors and books giving Angelenos a more

accessible route to the culinary world.

While Pasadena already has a host of affordable dining spots

(looking at you Maquina Taco, 1274 N. Lake Ave., No. 1,

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

major cards accepted)), a number of local restaurants with

more dollar icons next to their Yelp listings become an option

during this celebration of culinary culture. Here are some of

the Pasadena favorites you should check out before the deals

disappear and you are stuck counting down the days until the

winter dineLA event.

Alexander’s Steakhouse

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

on my best happy hour list for much the same reason as they are

getting a shout out here. Pasadena is fortunate enough to have

one of the three Alexander’s locations. For context on just what

a culinary heavyweight the Japanese influenced steakhouse is,

its Silicon Valley counterpart has a Michelin star. The Pasadena

location opened in 2015 after the committee that awards Michelin

stars stopped awarding them to Los Angeles-based restaurants.

With that context in mind, Alexander’s Restaurant Week menu

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

six-course meal that features a beef tataki appetizer, along with

a sweet braised pork belly doused in a pork aioli, garlic soy, and

pickled daikon. Following the appetizers come the organic greens

served with crab, lobster jelly, avocado and honey yuzu vinaigrette

dressing. The next two courses are the shrimp chawanmushi

and six-ounce New York strip of American Wagyu beef served in

a bordelaise reduction with an herb salad accompaniment. The

six courses are rounded out by a pistachio cake dessert served

with matcha ice cream and a vegetable pistachio crumble. I know

Alexander’s Restaurant Week offering hits the wallet harder than

some of the other choices, but it is an opening to the upper echelon

of the culinary world. Treat yourself to a lengthy, multicourse

journey through some truly masterful flavors.

then in its infancy, understandably working the finer

details of the menu. Gold praised the citrus brined

chicken wings, calling them “heartier, stickier than

the traditional double-cooked Indonesian bird.”

Perhaps in a show of respect to Gold who was the

arbiter of Los Angeles dining, the wings found their

way to Bone Kettle’s lunch menu. For $20 Bone

Kettle is offering a two-course lunch. The first

course is a choice of the Gold-approved chicken

wings or the spicy papaya salad made with bay

scallops, finely shredded green papaya, mangoes,

tomatoes, chili, cilantro, green beans and rounded

out for texture with peanuts. For an entree they are

offering diners a chance to experience their titular

bone infusions with either the top sirloin or the

ginger seared chicken, both accompanied by bone

broth and noodles. They also have a vegan entree

option — the crispy tempeh served with its own

vegan broth and noodles.

Beer & Claw

Beer & Claw has earned my respect. Tucked

away in Mills Alley, just off Green Street, the

crustacean & cocktail-centric restaurant

offers the shelled seafood options that we love

to crack open, harkening back to our hunter

gatherer roots. But unlike some similarly centric

restaurants, they do it sans the plastic bibs and

tablecloths like some of their counterparts. For

Restaurant Week they are putting it all out there.

Their pre-fixe three-course dinner and cocktail

menu will run $59, and is packed full of seafood

as well as non-oceanic options. For appetizers

there’s a five oyster platter, loaded pork belly

fries, a watermelon ahi salad, crab wontons, and

a few more to choose from. For entrees you can

select one of six options that include a ribeye

and a cajun seafood platter. The standout of the

entrees is the LobstaMozz, a decadent cheesy

lobster shell covered in mozzarella and spices.

Videos and pictures of the Lobstamozz have gone

viral across food blogs this week, and for good

reason; it must be seen to be believed. Their dinner

menu wraps up with one of four dessert options: the

honey bourbon strawberry shortcake is a summer

dream with fresh whipped cream and honey

bourbon drizzle. It is the refreshing ending that you

deserve after burning calories cracking into those

lobster shells.

Parkway Grill

The Pasadena pillar offers a two course lunch

menu and a three-course dinner menu. Featuring

ingredients from its own organic garden, Parkway

Grill creates really special dishes with a fresh,

seasonal twist. They’ve been doing things right for

over 35 years and if you haven’t had a chance to visit

yet, take this one. The lunch menu entrees feature

choices of some classics: pan fried chicken, a

shrimp and vegetable pasta dish, and an open faced

ribeye sandwich with onion rings. Dinner selections

include a whitefish beurre blanc, filet mignonette,

and a half-chicken with lemon sauce.

Each dish is enhanced by the freshest local fare,

straight from the on-premises garden and plated

in the exhibition kitchen, which has one of the first

mesquite and oak wood burning ovens in LA. Every

detail of Parkway Grill is special and I have no

doubt your visit will be as well.

Pro tip: Don’t miss the bar. It’s original,

transported from Chicago when Parkway

opened. Among various features and accolades

for the vast collection of wines and spirits, the

bartenders have over 92 collective years of

Parkway Grill service.

STAY CALM

ANXIETY OCCURS WHEN SOMEONE

HAS A STRONG NEED TO PERFORM

BUT FEARS FAILURE

Dear Patti,

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

license. I passed the written exam but when I took the actual driving test last

month I failed. It only took 25 minutes but it seemed like forever. I thought

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

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

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

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

getting more and more apprehensive. I’m very independent and hate the idea

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

unsuccessful, then maybe I need to practice more and take the test again, but

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

Do you have any suggestions on how to keep my composure?

— Hannah

Dear Hannah,

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

a school exam or an athletic competition, anxiety can occur when someone has

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

experience and confidence flies out the window. Concentration can also

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

example, you and I visited a hospital emergency room and encountered a woman

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

spot; while remembering her phone number and address might be challenging

enough.

When your anxiety level is so high that cognitive disruption (unclear thinking)

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

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

another channel is to your physical and emotional feelings in your body, and the

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

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

it’s important to focus on what each separate channel is communicating.

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

don’t want to lose your independence. Face these thoughts, explore possible

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

especially during the test. Every time these frightening thoughts return, dismiss

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

your driving skills and knowledge of traffic laws and stay focused in present

time.

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

Sit in your car in the parking lot and focus on the second channel, your physical

and emotional feelings. Imagine yourself getting in line to take the test. Do you

have physical anxiety symptoms such as knots or butterflies in your stomach,

racing heartbeat, shallow breathing or tense muscles? Are you experiencing feelings

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

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

breathe in and out, deeply and slowly. Count backwards from 10 to one, feeling

the tension gently leave your body with each breath as you relax your feet and

legs, your torso, your arms and hands and, lastly, your neck and head. When

you’re completely relaxed, open your eyes and, again, imagine yourself taking

the test. Repeat this relaxation exercise each time the anxiety returns until

you’ve desensitized your fears and can easily visualize yourself confidently taking

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

you know you have.

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

Eat a light but healthy meal beforehand. Arrive early with your thoughts

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

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

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

independence and adulthood. Good luck n

LOST NO MORE

House passes Schiff amendment to add names of

‘The Lost 74’ to Vietnam Veterans Memorial

Seventy-four sailors who lost their lives on the

USS Frank E. Evans during the Vietnam War will

have their names added to the Vietnam Veterans

Memorial in Washington, DC.

“The Lost 74 died aboard the USS Frank E.

Evans during the Vietnam War, and today the

House took an important step to ensure their

sacrifice is not forgotten,” said Rep. Adam Schiff

(D-Burbank).

Schiff announced on Friday that by a 220-197 vote the House of Representatives

passed an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)

instructing the Department of Defense to add the names of the memorial.

On June 3, 1969 the American destroyer was struck by the HMAS Melbourne,

an Australian aircraft carrier in the South China Sea, during a joint Southeast

Asia Treaty Organization exercise called “Sea Spirit” at the time of the collision.

Despite operating in Vietnamese waters immediately before deployment to the

joint exercise, and a scheduled return to activities supporting the war effort

after the exercise, it was determined that since the incident occurred outside the

geographical limit for the combat zone the sailors who lost their lives were ineligible

for inclusion on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

That conclusion did not acknowledge that at the time of the incident, the crew

of the USS Evans was instrumental in advancing American military objectives in

Vietnam and had participated in conflict just days before the collision.

MEANINGFUL CELEBRATION

Sri Lanka Day Expo festival of lights pays tribute

to memory of bomb victims

The Sri Lanka Foundation of Los Angeles is in

the victims who died in the bombings in Sri Lanka

on Easter Sunday, April 21.

There will be a full day’s worth of activities at the free event, which runs from 10

a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday, among them traditional stage performances that include a

variety of dance and music styles rooted in the country’s ethnic and topographical

diversity. The majority of dances are performed with live drumming. There will

be up country and low country dances in addition to a tamil classic dance harvest

dance.

The highlight of the day will take place at 6:30 p.m., when the Parade of

Lanka makes its way along the world famous Rose Parade route along Colorado

Boulevard, including a fire dance, whip crackers, stick dance, up stick dance,

bamboo sieve dance and a kawadi dance.

CUTTING-EDGE MUSICAL

Debatable Productions presents classic musical

‘Sweeney Todd’ at Boston Court Friday through

Sunday

The classic modern musical “Sweeney Todd”

will be presented Friday through Sunday at the

Boston Court Pasadena theater at 70 N. Mentor

Sondheim and book by Hugh Wheeler, the play

Todd, who sets up a barber shop in London which

is the basis for a sinister partnership with his fellow tenant, Mrs. Lovett as he kills

his customers to provide meat for her pies.

Showtimes are at 7 p.m. Friday, and 1 and 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

PURE

HILARITY

THE CLEAN COMEDY CHALLENGE

GIVES FRESH TALENTS THE CHANCE

TO BE CLEAN AND CLEVER FOR CASH

BY CARL KOZLOWSKI

Leslie Norris Townsend had been a

longtime veteran standup comic

when she decided to try out some

new jokes at an open mic near her Ohio

home a decade ago. Nearly every comic

around her that night was performing

dirty material, a fact that surprised her,

considering the fact she knew that clean

comedy was infinitely more valuable to

a comedy career. .

But that dispiriting evening inspired

her to take a stand against the

tide of onstage filth. She soon created

the Clean Comedy Challenge (CCC), a

twice-annual, three-day series of shows

and seminars in which more than twodozen

comics compete each night to

take home a top prize of $1,000, while

also engaging in seminars with veteran

comics and writers during the day.

The result has been a big success,

with the CCC bringing clean, clever

comedy to numerous cities nationwide.

Its third go-round at the Ice House in

Pasadena takes place Tuesday through

next Thursday, with national headliner

Bob Zany and former “Tonight Show”

head writer Jimmy Brogan amid the

judges and lecturers.

“We ask people all over the country

who have a desire to do standup to apply,

whether it’s a club comic who wants

to learn how to work clean, Christian

comics wanting to learn how to be

user-friendly in secular environments

and work cruise ships and clubs ,” says

Townsend, who notes that the Ice House

was the first club ever to hire her officially

as a comedian. “Clean comedy is

tions want squeaky clean acts and for them

to be politically correct also.”

The CCC mainly attracts participants

through announcements each January

or February on its website, cleancomedychallenge.com.

There are no auditions

involved, and the first 25 people to apply

and pay the fee ($400 for full participation

in seminars and performing) are accepted.

Participants perform three-minute

sets each night, in shows that are judged

by veteran comics, including Brogan and

Zany, among others. The final night, on

July 25, climaxes with the judges’ choice of

winner for each of the three nights facing

off alongside the audience-voted favorite.

The daytime seminars include a jokewriting

session led by legendary comedy

writer Gene Perret, who spent decades

as Bob Hope’s head writer before launching

his own successful line of comedyteaching

books. Other seminars cover

career promotion and how to get booked

in various formats of shows, in addition to

the comics receiving in-depth critiques by

the guest judges. Each evening features all

25 comics performing a different threeminute

set in front of a different panel of

judges.

“This allows everybody who has the desire

to do comedy a shot at either realizing

a dream, continuing a dream or possibly

beginning the moment of a dream,” says

Townsend. “It’s very exciting because everybody

looks at comedy and thinks, ‘I can

do that.’ It puts some meat on the bones

because it’s not easy and this gives them

three nights in a row to do stage time.

“Each night ballots are tallied and three

rise to the top, and there’s a cumulative

score because each night we have different

judges and so you have different eyes

looking at the jokes,” she continues. “The

ultimate goal is to pick someone who has

originality, joke writing skills, stage presence

and the overall star quality which is

hard to define.”

As the head writer for Jay Leno’s “The

Tonight Show” from 1992 to 2000, Jimmy

Brogan experienced the importance of

clean yet funny comedy firsthand on a

nightly basis. He has been a regular presence

at the three Ice House editions of the

CCC, serving as both a judge and seminar

lecturer in addition to providing one on

one critiques with the performers.

“In past years, I sat down with Jan

Smith the former comedy booker there,

and went through everyone’s act and gave

them feedback,” explains Brogan. “Some

performers are new to comedy and some

have been around and are looking to make

it bigger. I saw one woman named Angie

Stokes from Anchorage who came back

to do it again, and she was phenomenal in

year two after just trying it out the year

before.

“I always tell the comics that dirty

comedy turns out not to be the choice

that makes you feel good and that clean

comedy is the choice that in the long run

will make you more money because you

can work any kind of event or TV show,” he

adds. “It opens more doors than dirty. “

“A lot of times this attracts a person

who has it on their bucket list to do a pro

comedy club, and being around better comics,

you learn,” adds Townsend. “The challenge

is when you add a contest element to

it, it steps it up another notch. People bring

their A -game, edit their jokes, and do a

three-minute set.” n

The Clean Comedy Challenge takes place at 8

p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, and 7:30 p.m. next

Thursday, July 25, at the Ice House, 24 N. Mentor

Ave., Pasadena. Tickets are $10 per show. Visit

‘UNHEARD LA’ PRESENTS ‘LETTERS TO OUR CITY’

AT THE CRAWFORD FAMILY FORUM WEDNESDAY NIGHT

PHOTO: Louis Felix/KPCC

When the producers of

KPCC’s “Unheard LA”

recently invited Monterey

Park resident Mike Sonksen

to host an event in their space, he

had no shortage of fellow artists

and storytellers to call to join a

celebration of LA’s diverse communities

and pockets of wonder.

He says he and the show’s team

were “already on the same wavelength”

so things gelled quickly

for the show, which takes place

at the Crawford Family Forum

Wednesday night.

The “good friends and great

wordsmiths” who will join

Sonksen onstage include two of

his former high school students,

literary siblings Dante and

Monique Mitchell, as well as

fellow poet/tour guide Armond

Kinard, L.A. Taco editor Daniel

Hernandez, NAACP Image

Award-nominated novelist and

lawyer Natashia Deón, author/actor/activist

traci kato-kiriyama,

Monrovia poet Luivette Resto,

“StoryPhile” host Lee Boek, freelance

writer Esther Tseng, and

Highland Park poets Sara Borjas

and Rocío Carlos. Terry Robinson,

aka hip-hopper Hymnal, will

perform his surrealist poetry,

and Sonksen also invited El

Monte-based saxophonist Adrian

Ramon, a longtime collaborator

with whom he plans to perform

a piece.

They named the event “Letters

to Our City,” he says, “because

the city is ours.”

It also links thematically to

“Letters to My City,” a book of

poems and essays that Sonksen,

a third-generation Angeleno,

published earlier this year. It’s

an open-hearted love song to

his native city, with poems like

“Garvey Avenue From Alhambra

to El Monte,” “Ode to the Los

Angeles River,” “Arrival Stories,”

and “Los Angeles: The Land

of 1000 Dances” that delight

in the history and surprises

found in neighborhoods, streets,

and individual citizens across

LA. Homage is paid to literary

inspirations like Chester Himes

and Luis J. Rodriguez, and “LA

Authors,” one of Sonksen’s signature

poems, reappears in slightly

altered form from what was seen

in his 2006 collection “I Am Alive

in Los Angeles!”

That earlier book’s titular

poem also gets updated, as “I

Am Still Alive in Los Angeles!,”

with shout-outs to “millennials

on bicycles” and “angels in a

city singing/ synchronicity from

Central to Century City.” “Elegy

to Rootdown & Firecracker,” a

key essay, passionately evokes

the late-’90s club scene, when

the Rootdown, Firecracker and

the Chocolate Bar fostered the

synergistic spirit of the “Millennial

Los Angeles hip-hop, funk,

soul underground.”

“People, music, vibes, beats,

bass, life,” he writes. “A generation

of us can testify, it’s been an

amazing ride.”

In the intervening years,

Sonksen has become a husband,

parent and professor, and he

now writes journalistic essays as

often as poems. “Letters to My

City” reflects his life and worldview

now, and the “Letters to Our

City” event represents the community

that inspired his personal

and literary evolution.

“The book is about living your

values or living your ethics,” he

says.

“Everybody’s sharing the city

together, [and] everyone’s story

matters.” n

Unheard LA presents “Letters to Our

City” with host Mike Sonksen and fellow

wordsmiths 7:30-9 p.m. Wednesday, July

24, at the Crawford Family Forum, 474 S.

Raymond Ave., Pasadena; $12. Tickets

TRAX BY BLISS

BLACK PUMAS, Black Pumas (ATO):

HHHH

Charismatic frontman Eric Burton and producer/

ex-Grupo Fantasma guitarist Adrian Quesada, plus

guest players, put a cosmic spin on matters of the

heart with tracks like “Black Moon Rising,” the

hypnotic “Sweet Conversations” and “Confines”

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

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

Valley native Burton, who busked in Santa Monica

before landing in Austin in 2015, is reminiscent

of D’Angelo and Terence Trent D’Arby, gritty yet

sweet, and while Quesada’s lyrics can be obtuse his

fretwork and production are spot-on in evoking the

mystique as well as the open-hearted passion of

’60s-’70s soul. theblackpumas.com

JENNY TOLMAN, There Goes the

Neighborhood (Old Sol): HHH

The native Nashvillean is strongly reminiscent of

Brandy Clark throughout her cheerful, twanging

album debut. Tolman’s soft vocal tone magnifies

her generosity of spirit even when she’s nailing

characters with sharp details on snappy songs like

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

bra”), “High Class White Trash” and the amusing

title track. Her melodic style and playful metaphors

evoke traditional country, although “My Welcome

Mat” stands as a contemporary anthem of tolerance

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

RIYL Clark, Kacey Musgraves and Elizabeth Cook.

jennytolman.com

GEORGIA ANNE MULDROW, Vweto II (Mello

Music): HH½

The category-defying singer/composer/producer

veers from the more melodic songcraft of

last year’s “Overload” with this experimental

collection of spacey instrumentals, a sequel to

her 2011 album. Sticky beats and textures make

its 16 tracks aurally intriguing from a production

standpoint; much of their chill allure lies in

tracing and decipering interlaced funk, hip-hop,

jazz and R&B elements. But it’s a rather esoteric

exercise, and not recommended for anyone

operating heavy machinery. Apropos of the gravity

referenced in the Swahili title, it gets pretty heavy.

MANX MARRINER MAINLINE, Hell Bound

for Heaven (Stony Plain): HHHH

A gut-satisfying from veteran guitarist Harry Manx

and MoneyJunk frontman Steve Marriner, who

intersperse heartfelt originals with blues and gospel

chestnuts by Charlie Patton and the Staple Singers.

Manx threads Marriner’s swampy title track with

his mohan veena, a 20-stringed Indian lap slide

instrument whose ethereal tones enhance the

song’s account of spiritual search and reckoning

behind Marriner’s gritty vocal. Other highlights

include the Canadian duo’s moving ballad “Rise and

Fall in Love” and a take on Rev. Gary Davis’ “Death

Don’t Have No Mercy in This Land” that’s heavy

on slide, vibe, and feel. stonyplainrecords.com,

The Observatory will open an

experimental Cosmic Sound series with

Jeff Talman’s “Of Sound Before the

Stars” inside the dome of the 100-inch

telescope. Talman will introduce his

compositions and talk about its creation;

music derived from the cosmic

‘King’ of the Multiplex

DISNEY UNLEASHES ITS CGI REBOOT OF ANIMATED ‘LION KING’

There is no greater king in the family-film world

these days than Disney, as the entertainment

behemoth has snapped up everything from Marvel

superhero films to the Muppets, and from the “Star

Wars” universe to 20th Century Fox in recent years.

Add in Pixar, ABC TV, ESPN and the nationwide Radio

Disney network and there doesn’t seem to be a single

overlooked opportunity to shake down families for their

money.

But two years ago, they indeed opened another vault

by deciding to bring their line-drawn animated classics

to CGI or actual real life when a live-action reboot of

“Beauty and the Beast” brought in well over a billion

dollars worldwide. Since then, they’ve followed suit

with this summer’s smash live-action take on “Aladdin”

and flew to just middling success with “Dumbo,” but

now they’re poised to make their biggest hit yet in the

new genre with this weekend’s release of the CGI version

of “The Lion King.”

Directed by Jon Favreau, who scored hugely with his

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

“Lion” appears to bring its African setting to stunning

life despite the fact it’s entirely crafted on computer

screens. The new version opens with an African

woman’s voice singing the classic opening song “Circle

of Life” in place of its songwriter Elton John’s version

in the original, but it’s effective in making it clear that

this version strives to be more realistic on the voiceover

level as well.

The story follows young lion cub Simba (Donald

Glover), who is announced as the future heir to the

throne of his father Mufasa, and wants to grow up fast.

He takes the advice of his evil uncle Scar (Chiwetel Ejiofor)

and visits the elephant graveyard over the horizon

with his best friend and future mate Nala (Beyonce),

despite his father telling him it’s a forbidden zone.

Mufasa has to save the young pair from an attack

by hyenas, yet later Simba follows Scar’s bad advice

20 PASADENA WEEKLY | 07.18.19

again and practices his roar in a canyon that echoes.

The noise prompts a stampede of cows being chased

by evil hyenas again, and when Mufasa is endangered

while trying to save his son, Scar causes his death in a

vicious betrayal and then convinces Simba that he’s at

fault instead.

Simba runs away in shame for many years, teaming

up with a new duo of irresponsible friends named

Pumbaa (Seth Rogen) and Timon (Billy Eichner), who

try to convince him that the happiest way to live is by

shirking all responsibilities. But when Nala finds him

years later while seeking help to rid the kingdom of

Scar, Simba is forced to take a stand that carries a great

deal of consequences.

The film follows the storyline of the 1994 original

closely, but with an extra half-hour in its running time

the story adds depth to the characters and provides the

time needed to make its impressive action sequences

achieve maximum impact. In fact, the one warning

parents of young children should take heed is that the

battles between the lions and the chase scenes with the

hyenas in frenzied pursuit of the film’s young heroes

might prove to be too much for younger children.

Yet, there’s plenty of great comic relief with Rogen

and Eichner perfectly filling in the roles of the mischievous

Pumbaa and Timon,and John Oliver taking on the

wise bird Zazu. In a perfect nod to the original cartoon,

James Earl Jones reprises the role of Mufasa and gives

him perhaps even more regal class and fury than he

managed to perform a quarter-century ago.

It’s almost impossible to find anything wrong with

the film, continuing the Disney brand’s tradition of technical

perfection matched with a heartfelt tale. They may

have a glut of product in the marketplace, but they take

the time to make their films at the highest possible level

and audiences are ultimately the winners. n

NOTICE OF INTENT TO

ADOPT A MITIGATED

NEGATIVE

DECLARATION

AND NOTICE OF PUBLIC

WORKSHOP

PROJECT TITLE: Holly Street

Bridge Seismic Retrofi t Project

APPLICANT NAME: City of Pasadena

PROJECT SITE ADDRESS: Holly

Street Bridge over Arroyo Seco

Flood Control Channel (southeast

of Linda Vista Avenue)

ZONING DISTRICT: ROW, OS-

Open Space, RM-Multi-Family

Residential, and RS-Single-Family

Residential

GENERAL PLAN DESIGNATION:

Low Density Residential, Medium

Density Residential, Open Space

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:. The City

of Pasadena, in coordination with

the California Department of Transportation

(Caltrans), proposes to

rehabilitate and seismically retrofi t

the existing two-lane Holly Street

Bridge (No. 53C1041) over the

Arroyo Seco Channel, the Arroyo

Seco Trail (a Class 1 multi-use

trail), and North Arroyo Boulevard.

The seismic retrofi t would occur on

the Holly Street Bridge southeast

of Linda Vista Avenue, and entirely

within the City of Pasadena, Los

Angeles County, California. The

existing bridge was constructed

in 1925 and is 45.3-feet wide by

400.0-feet long. The bridge is a

concrete arch-deck span constructed

from cast-in-place concrete.

According to the Caltrans

Bridge Inspection Report (BIR), the

bridge currently (July 2016) holds

a suffi ciency rating of 39.4 and is

classifi ed as Structurally Defi cient.

The proposed Project would provide

needed rehabilitation and

a seismic retrofi t to the existing

bridge. Bridge retrofi t and

rehabilitation would include a

deck and barrier replacement,

luminaire replacement, archway

stiffening, joint strengthening,

column strengthening, pier cap

strengthening, retrofi t foundation

hold-downs, concrete spall repair,

crack sealing, and a bonded grout

treatment. Construction is estimated

to last for approximately 18

months, and the Holly Street Bridge

would be closed to vehicle and pedestrian

traffi c for approximately

9 months. The City plans to offer

a detour route using Linda Vista

Avenue, San Rafael Avenue, Colorado

Boulevard, and Orange Grove

Boulevard.

ENVIRONMENTAL DETERMINA-

TION: An Initial Study was prepared

and concluded that the Proposed

Project could have a signifi cant

effect on the environment; however,

with inclusion of mitigation

measures, these potential impacts

would be reduced to a less than

signifi cant level. Therefore, the

City has prepared a Mitigated

Negative Declaration.

HAZARDOUS MATERIALS:

The project site is not listed on any

hazardous materials or waste databases

pursuant to Section 65962.5

of the Government Code.

PUBLIC REVIEW PERIOD: Comments

on the Initial Study and

proposed Mitigated Negative Declaration

may be received in writing

Central Library, 285 E. Walnut Avenue,

Pasadena CA 91101.

PUBLIC WORKSHOP: During the

public review period, the City will

be hosting a Public Workshop to

provide additional information

and answer any questions on the

project in general, or regarding

the fi ndings and conclusion provided

in the Initial Study/Mitigated

Negative Declaration. The Public

Workshop will be held on July 31,

2019 from 5:30pm to 7pm at the

La Casita del Arroyo 177 South

Arroyo Boulevard, Pasadena, CA

91103).

APPROVALS NEEDED: The Pasadena

City Council will consider the

proposed project and any public

comments received during the

public review period and make a

decision if the City should adopt

the Mitigated Negative Declaration

and advance to the Final Design

phase. This decision is expected

to occur at a regularly scheduled

City Council Public Hearing in the

Fall of 2019. City Council Hearings

are held in the Pasadena City

Hall Council Chamber S249 (100

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 offi ce or a

title insurance company, either of

which may charge you a fee for this

information. If you consult either

of these resources, you should be

aware that the same lender may

hold more than one mortgage or

deed of trust on the property. NO-

TICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The

sale date shown on this notice of

sale may be postponed one or more

times by the mortgagee, benefi -

ciary, trustee, or a court, pursuant

to Section 2924g of the California

Civil Code. The law requires that

information about trustee sale

postponements be made available

to you and to the public, as a courtesy

to those not present at the sale.

If you wish to learn whether your

sale date has been postponed, and,

if applicable, the rescheduled time

and date for the sale of this property,

you may call 916-939-0772 for

information regarding the trustee’s

sale or visit this Internet Web site

postponements that are very short

in duration or that occur close in

time to the scheduled sale may

not immediately be refl ected in the

telephone information or on the

Internet Web site. The best way to

verify postponement information is

to attend the scheduled sale. The

undersigned Trustee disclaims any

liability for any incorrectness of the

property address or other common

designation, if any, shown herein. If

no street address or other common

designation is shown, directions to

the location of the property may be

obtained by sending a written request

to the benefi ciary within 10

days of the date of fi rst publication

of this Notice of Sale. If the sale is

set aside for any reason, including

if the Trustee is unable to convey

title, the Purchaser at the sale shall

shall have no further recourse

against the Trustor, the Trustee,

Agent, or the Benefi ciary’s Attorney.
