THINKING OF ROCHELLE<br />

Thirty-five years is a milestone<br />

to be proud of. Congratulations!<br />

I loved my time at the Pasadena<br />

Weekly from the crazy deadlines<br />

for special issues to the mystery<br />

of who was stealing leftovers from<br />

the break room fridge. (Cough, Jim<br />

Laris, cough.) But the friendships<br />

were the best part of being on staff.<br />

I remained close to Rochelle<br />

Ordaz, a former classified ad rep,<br />

until her death in 2017. She took<br />

tremendous joy in her job and was<br />

devoted to her family. Her name<br />

was missing from the In Memoriam<br />

page and I wanted to make<br />

sure that her husband, children<br />

and grandchildren know that her<br />

friends miss her and think of her<br />

often.<br />

WHAT’S THE ANSWER?<br />

Kamala Harris was in prosecutor<br />

mode during the second<br />

Democratic presidential debate,<br />

and said it’s not “climate change,”<br />

but “climate crisis,” which<br />

threatens our very existence as a<br />

species.<br />

Joe Biden promises 500,000<br />

charging stations for our new, allelectric<br />

automobile fleet.<br />

Bernie Sanders wants to “up the<br />

ante” on the Paris climate accord<br />

and make the rest of the world go<br />

along with a drastic transformation<br />

of the energy system. Millions<br />

need to rise up in a revolution<br />

against the fossil-fuel industry,<br />

the insurance industry, corporate<br />

greed in general, he said, and “we<br />

only have 12 years.”<br />

Gov. Hickenlooper said Colorado<br />

is leading the way on tough<br />

methane regulations.<br />

Some follow-up questions that<br />

didn’t get asked:<br />

1. Would they outlaw gasolinepowered<br />

cars and diesel-powered<br />

trucks? How about trucks carrying<br />

diesel generators to rescue electric<br />

cars stranded between charging<br />

stations? How about emergency<br />

vehicles or farm equipment or excavation<br />

equipment with internal<br />

combustion engines?<br />

2. What would supply backup<br />

generating capacity when<br />

solar and wind facilities are not<br />

generating any power (say to<br />

supply those charging stations<br />

and keep the lights on in the<br />

operating room)?<br />

3. How do we prosecute China<br />

for building hundreds of coal-fired<br />

generating stations?<br />

4. Where do we get jet fuel for<br />

our public officials if our own<br />

industry is destroyed? From Iran?<br />

5. Who will pay the hundreds of<br />

billions of dollars to Third World<br />

dictators in reparations for our<br />

driving cars and using coal-generated<br />

electricity?<br />

6. Does AOC think her mentor<br />

Bernie Sanders has the “social<br />

intelligence of a sea sponge” to<br />

believe her 12-year deadline for<br />

Doomsday?<br />

7. What did Gov. Hickenlooper<br />

do about methane-emitting<br />

cows and termites in Colorado?<br />

Should we still be allowed to eat<br />

meat?<br />

For other major issues related<br />

to atmospheric carbon dioxide<br />

and climate (wildfires, health<br />

effects, ocean acidification, sealevel<br />

rise, Arctic ice, hurricanes,<br />

and more), see Climate Change IQ<br />

test. How well does your favorite<br />

candidate do?<br />

~ JANE M. ORIENT, MD<br />

TUCSON, ARIZONA<br />

TO KAMALA HARRIS:<br />

I was so excited watching you<br />

during the debate. In addition<br />

to agreeing with your stance on<br />

many subjects, I greatly admired<br />

your ability to intelligently and<br />

powerfully state your views. I<br />

have thought for quite some<br />

time that you would be the best<br />

candidate to eviscerate the man<br />

currently occupying the White<br />

House and lead this country<br />

forward.<br />

However, last night I learned<br />

that you are participating in a fundraiser<br />

with Miguel Bustos, the<br />

lobbying executive who defended<br />

Wells Fargo during the fake accounts<br />

scandal.<br />

I am crushed. I just don’t know<br />

how you could do this.<br />

Unfortunately, what this<br />

tells me is that if you are<br />

elected nothing will really<br />

change. Wall Street, and its connections<br />

to our health care and<br />

Big Pharma, will still run and<br />

ruin American lives on a daily<br />

basis. We will still have to fear<br />

that catastrophic loss is just<br />

around the corner.<br />

You are better than this. And,<br />

if you don’t think you are, you<br />

shouldn’t be running for the office<br />

of the president of the United<br />

States in the first place.<br />

This breaks my heart.<br />

BY BRIAN HAUSS<br />

WORD GAMES<br />

CONSUMERS SUFFER WHEN THE GOVERNMENT STOPS BUSINESSES<br />

FROM COMMUNICATING TRUTHFULLY ABOUT THEIR PRODUCTS<br />

The state of Arkansas thinks people are confused about whether a veggie<br />

burger comes from a cow. In fact, it thinks people are so confused that<br />

it passed a law making it illegal for companies to use words like “meat,” “roast,” and<br />

“sausage” to describe products that are not made from animals. Under the law, it<br />

doesn’t matter if those words are modified by “vegan,” “veggie,” or “plant-based.”<br />

Rather than focusing on genuine consumer concerns — such as rising health care<br />

and education costs — Arkansas politicians have decided to take on an imaginary<br />

crisis: confusing a veggie burger for a hamburger, or almond milk for cow’s milk.<br />

Why? To “protect the agricultural producers in the state,” one of the law’s<br />

proponents admitted.<br />

Not only is Arkansas’ latest law absurd and unnecessary, it’s also<br />

unconstitutional. It violates the First Amendment by censoring truthful speech in<br />

order to protect the economic interests of the meat industry. Together with the Good<br />

Food Institute, the Animal Legal Defense Fund, and the ACLU of Arkansas, we filed a<br />

lawsuit today on behalf of Tofurky challenging the law.<br />

From oat milk to meatless burgers, consumers are increasingly interested in<br />

alternatives to food products derived from live animals. Right now, most of those<br />

alternatives are made from plants. But companies are also investing in technologies<br />

that cultivate meat from animal cells, effectively allowing them to make beef without<br />

the cow. The meat and dairy industries are worried about these new competitors,<br />

identifying them as one of the “major challenges” the animal meat industry faces.<br />

But instead of competing in the free market, industry groups have enlisted friendly<br />

state legislatures and regulators to give them an upper hand. Over the past year,<br />

states throughout the country, including Missouri, Mississippi, Louisiana and South<br />

Dakota, passed a new wave of meat censorship laws that prohibit companies from<br />

using terms like “veggie bacon,” “cauliflower rice,” or “almond milk.”<br />

The laws’ proponents insist that they’re just trying to prevent consumers from<br />

being misled. One former FDA commissioner memorably declared that almond milk<br />

is a contradiction in terms because “almonds don’t lactate.” But consumers know<br />

that, of course, and it’s absurd to suggest otherwise. As Republican Sen. Mike Lee<br />

explained, “No one buys almond milk under the false illusions that it came from a<br />

cow. They buy almond milk because it didn’t come from a cow.”<br />

Businesses often rely on figurative language to help communicate information<br />

about the flavor, texture, or appearance of their products. Consumers know that<br />

“peanut butter” is not made from cows, but the product’s name efficiently informs<br />

them that it spreads like butter. “Veggie bacon” is appealing to consumers who<br />

enjoy the distinctive taste, smell and crunch of conventional bacon, but who prefer<br />

plant-based foods for any number of personal reasons. If companies are forced to<br />

describe their products as “savory plant-based protein,” consumers are likely to be<br />

much more confused about exactly what it is they’re putting on their plates. And<br />

that’s the real purpose of these label censorship laws: creating confusion to protect<br />

favored economic interests.<br />

But the First Amendment does not allow the government to censor speech in<br />

order to pick winners and losers in the marketplace. After all, consumers rely<br />

on the free exchange of truthful information to make their own choices. As the<br />

Supreme Court put it in a landmark decision recognizing constitutional protection<br />

for commercial speech, “[s]o long as we preserve a predominantly free enterprise<br />

economy, the allocation of our resources in large measure will be made through<br />

numerous private economic decisions. It is a matter of public interest that those<br />

decisions, in the aggregate, be intelligent and well informed. To this end, the free flow<br />

of commercial information is indispensable.”<br />

In other words, when the government plays word games to prevent businesses<br />

from communicating truthfully about their products, consumers are ultimately the<br />

ones who suffer.<br />

Arkansas’ law, and similar laws in other states, must be struck down. ■<br />

‘A CALL TO ACTION’<br />

BIDEN SAYS PRESIDENT<br />

TRUMP’S FAILURE TO<br />

CONDEMN THE RACISTS AT<br />

CHARLOTTESVILLE PROMPTED<br />

HIM TO RUN<br />

At a fundraiser at the home of Pasadena City<br />

Councilman John Kennedy, former vice president<br />

and Democratic presidential frontrunner<br />

Joe Biden said he knew he had to get into the<br />

presidential race after the white supremacist<br />

rally in Charlottesville two years ago.<br />

“I could not stay on the sidelines anymore,”<br />

Biden told about 70 supporters gathered at Kennedy’s<br />

home on July 19, according to media pool<br />

reporting on the event. “It was a call to action.”<br />

Attendees included former US Labor Secretary<br />

and current LA County Supervisor Hilda<br />

Solis; Conway Collins, the president and CEO of<br />

GRACE, an antipoverty nonprofit in Pasadena;<br />

and Rocky Collis, an attorney whose clients<br />

have included the US Women’s Soccer Players<br />

Association. Biden’s son Hunter Biden and his<br />

wife Melissa Cohen also attended.<br />

“This election is about determining what<br />

kind of America we want going forward,” Kennedy<br />

told the Pasadena Weekly. “Democrats<br />

are seeking to renew and build an America<br />

where the rule of law is the foundational<br />

element of our democracy; where we make<br />

avenues available for the least in society to succeed;<br />

where poor people, black white, brown,<br />

red, yellow come together to fight oppression.”<br />

Pasadena has become a main stop for<br />

Democratic presidential candidates. So far,<br />

Sens. Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris and<br />

Kirsten Gillibrand have visited the city, along<br />

with Washington Gov. Jay Islee and former<br />

Secretary of Housing and Urban Development<br />

Julian Castro.<br />

Trump has recently faced massive criticism<br />

for telling four congresswomen of color to go<br />

back to where they came from.<br />

Three of the four freshman congresswomen<br />

are from the United States, except for Ihlan<br />

Omar who was born in Somalia. Days after the<br />

attack, Trump supporters chanted “Send her<br />

back,” at a campaign rally in North Carolina.<br />

The president later condemned the chant, and<br />

claimed he tried to stop it, but video showed<br />

he stood for nearly 15 seconds as the crowd<br />

chanted.<br />

One week before the first presidential<br />

debate, Biden came under fire after he declared<br />

he had worked with racist lawmakers.<br />

Biden recalled how Mississippi Sen. James<br />

Eastland called him “son” but not “boy.” Yet<br />

they worked together on legislation.<br />

In the debate, Harris scored political points<br />

after chiding Biden for opposing busing in the<br />

1970s.<br />

RUBBING OUT<br />

ROUNDUP<br />

COUNTY SUPERVISORS FORMALLY BAN THE USE OF<br />

GLYPHOSATE-BASED PRODUCTS, INCLUDING ROUNDUP<br />

BY ANDRÉ COLEMAN AND REMALI DE SILVA<br />

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors has permanently<br />

banned county departments from using a controversial weed<br />

killer linked to cancer in several lawsuits.<br />

“With environmental and health concerns as top priority, the<br />

Board of Supervisors has put a permanent ban on glyphosate-based<br />

products,” Los Angeles County Supervisor Kathryn Barger said in<br />

a statement issued Monday. “We are awaiting a report back from<br />

our county departments at the end of the year that will determine<br />

alternatives and any circumstances where alternatives are not<br />

viable.”<br />

stores and once used by most municipalities, contains glyphosate,<br />

a chemical that is either banned or restricted in communities in 13<br />

On Monday, Maria A, Katas, Caltech director of housing, said the<br />

school will stop using “pesticides” and is committed to any needed<br />

clean-up efforts after complaints surfaced that the school used a<br />

generic version of Roundup at a school housing site. The Pasadena<br />

Star-News on Sunday reported the pesticide was sprayed at Caltech.<br />

That news came two months after the Board of Supervisors<br />

directed the Department of Public Works, in conjunction with County<br />

Counsel, the Departments of Public Health, Parks and Recreation,<br />

Beaches and Harbors, and the Agricultural Commission to convene<br />

a panel of experts that could hire a consultant to explore options for<br />

vegetation management, especially in areas where<br />

the use of traditional alternatives to glyphosate-based<br />

products is problematic due to challenges with access,<br />

safety and habitat restoration.<br />

The board, which voted for the ban on May 21, will<br />

also continue to solicit recommendations from the<br />

public on possible alternatives to the use of glyphosatebased<br />

products for vegetation management.<br />

The departments will report back to the<br />

supervisors with recommendations and any feasible<br />

alternatives for the control of vegetation within 180<br />

days.<br />

In March, the Board of Supervisors first approved<br />

a motion by Barger to temporarily stop county<br />

departments from using the herbicide that contains a<br />

chemical believed to cause cancer while a study was<br />

conducted and viable alternatives were explored.<br />

The board’s action then came on the heels<br />

of a story appearing in the Pasadena Weekly in<br />

March revealing Roundup was being sprayed by<br />

county workers at a heliport near Councilman<br />

Gene Masuda’s district in northeast Pasadena.<br />

County officials began meeting to evaluate the use<br />

of herbicides and pesticides after the newspaper<br />

spoke with several officials.<br />

“I think the ban is a good idea,” Masuda told the<br />

Pasadena Weekly on Monday. “It’s the right thing to do,<br />

of course. It is poison. Roundup is dangerous stuff to<br />

have in our soil and in the water.”<br />

Barger, a cancer survivor, said “I am<br />

hypersensitive to this issue” at the board’s meeting<br />

on Tuesday. “There are people who have had<br />

immune systems compromised, who are more<br />

susceptible.”<br />

Barger met with local resident Darian Donner,<br />

whose complaint about the herbicide’s use near her<br />

home led to the moratorium, to discuss the county’s<br />

use of the popular weed killer.<br />

Roundup, which has been in use since the 1970s,<br />

was developed by Monsanto, which was bought in<br />

2018 by Bayer AG, headquartered in Germany, for<br />

$62.5 billion. The company has been successfully<br />

sued three times by non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma<br />

patients who blame their conditions on Roundup.<br />

On July 18 a judge issued a tentative ruling<br />

reducing a $2 billion jury award to a couple after<br />

finding glyphosate most likely caused their cancer.<br />

According to Bloomberg News, the ruling could<br />

“reduce the award by 90 percent or more, putting it<br />

in the range of $150 million to $250 million.”<br />

Judge Winifred Smith of the Alameda County<br />

Circuit Court denied Bayer’s appeal to overrule<br />

the original $2 billion verdict, but said she was<br />

“inclined” to reduce the damages.<br />

While attorneys for Bayer called the jury’s verdict<br />

“unhinged” back in May, the response to Thursday’s<br />

tentative ruling was well received. “The court’s tentative<br />

order proposes changes in the damage awards which<br />

would be a step in the right direction, but Bayer will<br />

wait for a final order on the post-trial motions before<br />

commenting in further detail,” company officials said in<br />

a statement issued after the ruling.<br />

THE COUNT<br />

As of Monday,4,163 days after the war in Afghanistan ended …<br />

4,423<br />

American military<br />

service members<br />

(0 more than<br />

last week) have<br />

been reported<br />

killed in action<br />

since the War on<br />

Terror began in<br />

2001, according to<br />

The Associated Press.<br />

4<br />

months since the last<br />

piece of ISIS-held<br />

territory was<br />

liberated, 1,000<br />

US troops<br />

remain in Syria,<br />

according to<br />

Reuters.<br />

Earlier this month, another Northern California<br />

judge reduced an $80 million award against Bayer<br />

to $25 million. All three lawsuits originated in the<br />

Bay Area.<br />

Since juries began awarding massive payouts,<br />

a slew of commercials have popped up on TV<br />

hawking the product, while law firms have also<br />

taken to the airwaves searching for possible<br />

victims. There are currently more than 11,000<br />

pending cases against Bayer still waiting to be<br />

adjudicated. It was not immediately known if any of<br />

those cases stem from claims made in LA County.<br />

The classification of glyphosate as a possible<br />

carcinogen has been criticized by the US<br />

Environmental Protection Agency, which does not<br />

consider the chemical a cancer-causing agent. The<br />

state EPA, however, does consider it a carcinogen.<br />

In April, a state appellate court found that the<br />

state can require labeling of products containing<br />

glyphosate herbicide as toxic under Proposition 65,<br />

also known as the state Safe Drinking Water and<br />

Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986.<br />

Glyphosate was found in 21 oat-based snack<br />

products and cereals. Popular among children,<br />

all but four of these products were found with<br />

glyphosate levels considered unsafe for children,<br />

according to CBS News.<br />

In February 2018 a federal judge temporarily<br />

ruled against the state’s attempts to require cancer<br />

warnings to be placed on food products that<br />

contain traces of glyphosate.<br />

General Mills, the maker of the oat snacks<br />

in question, claims that food safety is the “top<br />

priority” for the company. Pesticides, they claim,<br />

are used in “the majority of foods we all eat” and<br />

that “experts at the FDA and EPA determine the<br />

safe levels for food products,” which their growers<br />

follow.<br />

Bayer claims that the glyphosate levels “are<br />

far below the strict limits established by the<br />

EPA to protect human health.” According to<br />

the Environmental Working Group, a nonprofit,<br />

nonpartisan organization dedicated to protecting<br />

human health and the environment, Bayer has<br />

a history of “spreading misinformation about<br />

pesticide residues.”<br />

The regulations regarding pesticide usage are<br />

well-established and the glyphosate level, Bayer has<br />

argued, is well below the recommended safety level.<br />

Bayer claims that “glyphosate-based herbicides<br />

will continue to play a key role in helping<br />

agriculture meet pressing environmental and food<br />

security challenges as the global population grows<br />

by an expected two billion people through 2050.”<br />

Locally, Pasadena city officials stopped using<br />

Roundup in 2018, according to City Manager Steve<br />

Mermell.<br />

All told, there are local and state government<br />

glyphosate restrictions or bans in place in 13 states.<br />

Other California cities to take action on use of the<br />

herbicide include: Los Angeles, Burbank, Carlsbad,<br />

Encinitas, Thousand Oaks, Irvine and Richmond. n<br />

8<br />

SOLAR SAIL SUCCESS<br />

ALL SYSTEMS ARE GO FOR PLANETARY<br />

SOCIETY’S LIGHTSAIL 2 PROJECT<br />

BY CAROLINE KIMBEL<br />

Using solar wind to travel through space has been a<br />

dream for centuries, first imagined by Johannes Kepler in<br />

the 1600s.<br />

On Tuesday, solar sailing took another step toward<br />

becoming a proven technology when the Pasadena-based Planetary Society’s LightSail<br />

2 mission team successfully deployed the spacecraft’s solar sail.<br />

As of noon Tuesday, “All indications are that LightSail 2’s solar sail has deployed<br />

successfully,” according to a live Internet feed of the mission. “Flight controllers sent<br />

the deployment command at approximately 11:45 PDT … Telemetry showed the motor<br />

count increasing as expected, and the motor appeared to halt at the correct time. Light-<br />

Sail 2’s cameras also appeared to capture imagery as planned.”<br />

The Planetary Society launched LightSail 1, a test “nanosatellite,” in 2015. The test<br />

was unable to progress forward because of issues with the engineering. Since then, Cal<br />

Poly San Luis Obispo students have aided scientists in testing crucial ground station<br />

operations in preparation for Tuesday’s mission to have the silver sail soak up power<br />

from the sun while in orbit around Earth.<br />

Like LightSail 1, LightSail 2 is a citizen-funded project that plans to test the idea of<br />

harnessing the sun’s photons in order to mobilize a spacecraft. Live coverage of the sail<br />

deployment at the Cal Poly San Luis Obispo ground station began Tuesday.<br />

Solar sailing transcends the limitations of space travel by utilizing the sun as an<br />

inexhaustible source of energy.<br />

LightSail 2 is focused on becoming the first solar sail launched with the purpose of<br />

orbiting Earth. Its cube-shaped satellite, or cubesat, is about the size of a loaf of bread<br />

and carries a boxing-ring-sized solar sail made of Mylar, which is designed to collect the<br />

sun’s photons.<br />

The video from mission control at Cal Poly has been live-streamed at planetary.<br />

WHERE’S THE MONEY?<br />

ATTORNEY CLAIMS WOOTEN’S CHECKS<br />

FOR LEGAL DEFENSE HAVE BEEN<br />

BOUNCING<br />

BY ANDRÉ COLEMAN<br />

High-profile attorney Christopher Darden claims that he<br />

can no longer defend a man accused of bilking the city of<br />

Pasadena out of millions of dollars because checks written<br />

by his wife are not clearing.<br />

Darden represented Danny Ray Wooten during his criminal trial after Wooten<br />

was accused of embezzling $6.4 million from city coffers over 11 years. Wooten was<br />

sentenced to 14 years in prison in November. Tyrone Collins, a local electrical contractor<br />

who was sentenced to 11 years, was ordered to pay $900,000, according to a statement<br />

issued by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.<br />

Darden, a former deputy district attorney, was one of the key figures in the O.J.<br />

Simpson murder trial in 1994 and 1995.<br />

“I received checks that were returned insufficient funds,” Darden wrote to the court.<br />

“Mrs. Wooten has ignored prior correspondence from counsel, but has appeared in this<br />

court and attempted to represent herself. There is a large outstanding balance with my<br />

office.”<br />

The City Council discussed a civil lawsuit against Wooten and his wife, LaVenta,<br />

during Monday’s closed-session meeting. The two sides are scheduled to appear in court<br />

on Aug. 7 for a status conference.<br />

Last November, a jury found Wooten guilty of 53 counts that included embezzlement<br />

and misappropriation of public funds. Collins was convicted of all 20 counts against him<br />

for those types of crimes.<br />

The city was only able to connect Wooten and Collins to $4.6 million of the missing<br />

$6.4 million taken in the embezzlement.<br />

Wooten worked in the Public Works Department, which was in charge of placing<br />

underground all of the city’s utilities. Between 2004 and 2014, Wooten created false<br />

invoices in the Public Works Department, which was in charge of placing underground<br />

wiring for all of the city’s utilities.<br />

Invoices were filed for work done by Collins Electric and money was given to Collins.<br />

In many cases the invoices claimed work was performed at addresses that do not exist.<br />

Wooten was able to authorize the payments from an underground utilities fund<br />

account. By doing this over time, prosecutors said Wooten embezzled $6.4 million<br />

through that account.<br />

City employees signed off on the invoices and returned them to Wooten instead of<br />

turning them in themselves.<br />

After getting the appropriate signatures, Wooten would then add extra numbers to<br />

the invoices.<br />

According to prosecutors, Wooten who is a minister, created fake bank accounts<br />

for two churches, but he was the only person listed on those accounts, according to LA<br />

County Deputy District Attorney Bjorn Dodd, who prosecuted the case.<br />

Dodd said Wooten gave some of the stolen funds to Collins.<br />

In the end, city insurers restored $5.4 million, $1 million less than an audit revealed<br />

was missing. n<br />

#knowwhereyourfoodcomesfrom<br />

A personal quest to<br />

learn where eggs<br />

bought in local stores<br />

originated takes<br />

interesting turns<br />

STORY AND PHOTOS<br />

BY BLISS BOWEN<br />

Shoppers maneuver around me as I inspect cartons of eggs in the refrigerated<br />

section of a local grocer. Blue Sky. Chino Valley Ranchers. Eggland’s. Full Circle<br />

Organic. Happy Egg. Heritage Breed. Kroger. Nichols. Organic Valley. Pete and<br />

Gerry’s. Simple Truth Organic. 365. Vital Farms. Cage free … free range … hormone-free<br />

… soy-free … omega-3 … all natural … dark yolk … farm fresh … organic … pasture<br />

raised … certified humane … ethical eggs … distributed from — what, Cincinnati?<br />

Texas? Missouri?<br />

Where are these eggs from?<br />

That scene plays out repeatedly, with differing brands, prices and varieties, at<br />

Ralph’s, Stater Brothers, Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, other area grocers and neighborhood<br />

markets. Queries at certain stores are inadequately addressed. For the record,<br />

I’m an avid cook but no egg connoisseur. What’s driving these expeditions is curiosity;<br />

I simply want to know where and how my food was raised. Obtaining that information<br />

should not be complicated. Like many consumers I’m striving to make responsible<br />

choices mindful of sustainability and humane treatment of chickens, and which support<br />

local farmers. Buying locally sourced food is common sense.<br />

Defining “local” is tricky. We’ll come to that.<br />

The Cornucopia Institute, a nonprofit organic industry watchdog and information<br />

resource for consumers and small farmers, helpfully publishes a Scorecard that rates<br />

brands of eggs according to the extent of outdoor access chickens are given, average<br />

flock size, and indoor space given each bird, among other criteria. But unless you obtain<br />

them from a neighbor or nearby farm, ascertaining where eggs were actually raised can<br />

be challenging. That is not inconsequential if you are concerned about carbon footprints,<br />

or salmonella outbreaks and groundwater contamination at commercial farms, or the<br />

gases and waste generated at CAFOs, the concentrated animal feeding operations (aka<br />

factory farms) where most US poultry is unsustainably confined. (According to the Environmental<br />

Protection Agency, CAFOs can hold fewer than 9,000 to more than 82,000<br />

laying hens, depending on the operation’s size and the type of manure handling system<br />

utilized.)<br />

Egg expiration dates are generally printed on carton ends. Alongside that date there<br />

should also be printed a “P,” indicating the plant number of the facility where the eggs,<br />

which arrive from different farms, were packaged. According to the US Department of<br />

Agriculture, eggs can be sold for up to 30 days after packaging. Once purchased, “you<br />

can store fresh shell eggs in their cartons in the refrigerator for four to five weeks” beyond<br />

their packaging date. But color, flavor and texture don’t always remain consistent<br />

for the duration.<br />

Randomly selecting a carton of eggs at a store, I check the “sell by” date and plant<br />

number where the eggs were packaged. It takes a while to track down the location,<br />

thanks to some dead website links, but the Plantbook Query Page for the USDA’s Agricultural<br />

Marketing Service’s Livestock and Poultry Program yields information: the eggs<br />

were packaged in Kalona, Iowa. I venture to five local stores to research where more<br />

randomly chosen egg cartons from several brands were packaged; four out of 10 were<br />

packaged in California (in Colton, Denair, Turlock and Wasco). The others bear plant<br />

numbers from packaging centers in Tonopah, Arizona; Berryville, Arkansas; Kalona and<br />

Harris, Iowa; Chase, Kansas; and Elizabeth, New Jersey.<br />

There are 2,435 miles separating Elizabeth from Los Angeles, and 1,812 miles<br />

between LA and Kalona. Calculating the fuel used to transport them in a refrigerated<br />

truck from muggy New Jersey or muggy, buggy Iowa to temperate Pasadena, and how<br />

that shapes their carbon footprint and cost — and freshness — is for another story on<br />

another day. It’s presently enough to note that, according to the American Egg Board, US<br />

egg production totaled 8.56 billion during February, and California is the nation’s sixthlargest<br />

egg-producing state (after Michigan, ahead of Minnesota). So why ship eggs here<br />

from the East Coast, the South, and the Midwest? What long-term benefit can Golden<br />

State consumers derive that outweighs environmental costs and frequent nutritional<br />

compromises caused by antibiotic-boosted feed? Sure, all egg handlers must register<br />

with the California Department of Food and Agriculture. But.<br />

My paternal grandfather was an accountant whose clientele in southeastern Pennsylvania<br />

included some small farmers. A few traded goods for services when times were<br />

tough, and as a child I was delighted when he’d bear an armload of fragrant berries,<br />

peppers, regally purple eggplant, and fresh eggs to the dining table. That helped root my<br />

belief in the value of fresh food, and knowing where it was grown.<br />

Sustainable Goals<br />

Amelia McDonald, a self-described “recovering lawyer,” runs McDonald’s Urban<br />

Farm, a two-acre operation hugging a hillside at the top of Altadena. It’s an active participant<br />

in what local author Elisa Callow described in “The Urban Forager” as Altadena’s<br />

“emerging small-farms community.”<br />

Passing through the farm’s green gates, a cheery barnyard chorus gradually swells<br />

as McDonald leads the way past fenced gardens of greens, onions, nasturtiums, squash,<br />

and test plantings. She jokes about how she and her daughter mulch weeds with goat<br />

poop, while pointing out pens and coops her husband built. “We use no chemicals, no<br />

pesticides,” she says. “We do everything we can to be as sustainable as possible. We don’t<br />

have a compost pile because the chickens eat everything.” She says the farm is home to<br />

“50 to 99 poultry at any given time” (99 is their limit) and 14 playful dwarf Nigerian goats<br />

Brown Leghorn chicken at McDonald’s Urban Farm.<br />

Rainbow eggs from special breeding program at McDonald’s<br />

Urban Farm. Per Amelia McDonald, dark brown eggs are from<br />

Black Copper Marans hens, blue eggs are from Easter Egger<br />

hens, and the green are what they breed for, laid by “Olive<br />

Egger” hens.<br />

Year-old laying hens looking on as Amelia McDonald scoops up<br />

handful of feed at McDonald’s Urban Farm.<br />

(including seven born in April who waste no time demonstrating<br />

their cuteness).<br />

Now, when “everything’s blooming,” their chickens dine<br />

on “greens, grass, bugs” daily; in winter, they eat mostly<br />

grain. “We get about 50 or 60 eggs a day. I choose chickens for<br />

egg productivity as well as how they look,” she says, opening<br />

a pen door. “Some of these are special breeders. … We give<br />

our chickens names, the ones that are not getting eaten.”<br />

McDonald says they are permitted for selling poultry meat,<br />

but they were unable to purchase Red Ranger chickens or<br />

turkeys this year because of the quarantine.<br />

(A February outbreak of Virulent Newcastle Disease,<br />

which is fatal for birds but has no or very little effect on<br />

humans, prompted state officials to declare a poultry quarantine<br />

in LA, Riverside and San Bernardino counties. More<br />

than a million birds have been euthanized, most of them<br />

from commercial operations.)<br />

McDonald introduces me to her “big layers,” including<br />

a flock of handsome Speckled Sussex chickens (“Prince<br />

Harry” and “Meghan Markle 1 through 10”), a Cinnamon<br />

Queen named Freddie Mercury, a Silkie called Liza Minnelli,<br />

and a kooky-looking Frizzle chicken. A Black Copper Marans<br />

rooster crows suddenly, as if on cue. I notice wrinkled<br />

patches of white skin angled below one hen’s eyes; they’re<br />

earlobes, and suggest what color her eggs will be.<br />

Down a hay-strewn path, in the next pen, McDonald<br />

calmly retrieves eggs from a basket: beige, brown, cream,<br />

blue- and olive-tinged. Their rustic palette of colors is reminiscent<br />

of an Andrew Wyeth painting. A black-eared white<br />

rabbit nibbles near the feeder; in the opposite corner, two<br />

red-combed brown hens take dust baths.<br />

“We have never had mites, although it’s OK if someone<br />

did; it happens with backyard chickens. But they take a dust<br />

bath and it keeps them healthy,” she explains. “This is the<br />

problem with conventional egg farms. They’re in cages, they<br />

have no access to dirt, and of course they’re going to get<br />

mites; of course they’re going to get sick; then you have to<br />

give them antibiotics, and then the food that’s coming out of<br />

them is not OK.”<br />

Therein lies a hidden cost of “cheap” food we consume<br />

without due consideration of its provenance.<br />

She plunges her scooped hands into a metal pail of<br />

organic, whole-grain, non-GMO chicken food from nearby<br />

Fable Farm & Feed as birds look on intently. “We could eat<br />

this — this is peas, lentils, seeds, wheat,” she says. “This is<br />

the most important thing to me.<br />

“These guys go through 150 pounds of feed a week. It is<br />

the end of June, and I am just about to break even on eggs to<br />

feed. Not including straw, not including new nesting boxes,<br />

not including time, water, labor, feeders.”<br />

What Is Local?<br />

To help support the farm, McDonald teaches classes<br />

(including a cooking class Aug. 17, and a goat class in the fall;<br />

info will be available at mcdonaldsurbanfarm.org). “That’s<br />

a way we connect with our community and say, ‘You don’t<br />

have to be on two acres; you can have six chickens in your<br />

backyard. You can do this.’” She will also participate (as will<br />

Callow) in “Women in Food,” an event moderated by Armory<br />

Center for the Arts Executive Director Leslie Ito at Pasadena<br />

Central Library on Sept. 26.<br />

McDonald says she’s a “mostly self-taught” farmer,<br />

although her “recovering hippie” parents grew produce while<br />

she was growing up in Eagle Rock in the ’70s. She and her<br />

husband bought this property in 2012 and started the farm<br />

in 2015. For two-and-a-half years, until January, she hauled<br />

eggs, fruits and vegetables one mile to the Altadena Farmers<br />

Market in a golf cart (“a zero fossil fuel trip”).<br />

Now she makes Wednesday and Saturday deliveries to<br />

private clients in her car; at Mother Moo Creamery in Sierra<br />

Madre, cartons are stamped with the Julian date on which<br />

the eggs were laid. (Per the USDA, Julian dates are codes<br />

“starting with January 1 as 001 and ending with December<br />

31 as 365.”) Saturday customers receive eggs “laid since<br />

Wednesday,” she says; Wednesday customers take delivery<br />

of eggs “laid since Saturday.” She often hashtags posts to<br />

the farm’s Instagram account “#doyouknowwhereyourfoodcomesfrom”<br />

and “#knowyourfarmer.”<br />

For a while last year I bought eggs at a Pasadena farmers<br />

market — two dozen, sandwiched between rubberbanded<br />

eggshell flats, open at the sides. The first time, I asked if they<br />

were from a local farm. “Yes.” Where? “Ontario.” Thirty-five<br />

miles away. I ask McDonald to define “local.”<br />

“You have to look at everything you’re bringing into your<br />

food system as a whole and balance it out. Maybe you can’t get<br />

super local meat, but you can get eggs within your town, or<br />

five miles away. Let’s say you live somewhere where you can’t<br />

get the eggs so you’ve gotta go 10 miles; maybe that’s OK if<br />

you’re butchering your own chickens. Local is five feet for me,<br />

for the majority of our food, but that can’t be for everyone.”<br />

She mentions the 100-mile diet. The idea was popularized<br />

by “The 100-Mile Diet: A Year of Local Eating,”<br />

Canadian authors’ Alisa Smith & J.B. MacKinnon’s 2007<br />

chronicle of eating only foods produced within 100 miles<br />

of their apartment.<br />

“The 100-mile diet is a sustainable goal for people in the<br />

United States, given our broken system,” McDonald says.<br />

“Some people consider that local, even hyperlocal.”<br />

Closeness and Community<br />

In Pasadena, the industrious Dervaes family’s Urban<br />

Homestead is an enterprising community hub. They sell<br />

produce, honey and eggs raised in the 1/10-acre-sized garden<br />

surrounding the early 20th-century Craftsman-style house<br />

they’ve occupied since 1985. They host classes (beekeeping,<br />

bread baking, preserve making) and occasional acoustic<br />

concerts and tours. Proceeds support the Homestead.<br />

Foothill communities are home to many backyard<br />

farmers. In Sierra Madre, I pass two teenage girls selling<br />

fresh lemonade from a corner stand on my way to visit a<br />

woman who’s been raising hens in her backyard for decades.<br />

As a stay-at-home mom who was organic enough to<br />

make her own baby food, she originally wanted chicken<br />

fertilizer for her organic garden and “to be close to the<br />

earth.” Now, instead of 17 to 20 hens she keeps only two<br />

Barred Rocks, one Buff Orpington, and a rescued Rhode<br />

Island Red. They live in a tidy fenced enclosure alongside<br />

the garden, tucked nightly into their coop before dark to<br />

safeguard against bobcats, coyotes and raccoons. They<br />

provide fresh eggs — and company.<br />

“I’m a caregiver. I need to take care of something. They’re<br />

my girls. … They’re daily work and you can’t ignore them.<br />

The grandkids love them.<br />

“I probably have $2 eggs,” she says, laughing. “I buy and<br />

feed them only organic food, because it’s going to me and<br />

my kids and grandkids. There’s no waste, ever. Instead of<br />

composting, I give everything to the chickens except potato<br />

peels; they can’t have anything from the nightshade family<br />

unless it’s cooked.”<br />

She sends me off with four eggs collected the day before<br />

from her “girls.” I watch as she bundles them from her<br />

kitchen counter into a half-carton adorned with a handcolored<br />

chicken print, then drops in plump, red and orange<br />

grape tomatoes from her garden. Back home, I pop one in my<br />

mouth and it bursts with juice, sweet and tasting like summer;<br />

in that moment, I time travel back to childhood in South<br />

Jersey when I would “help” my grandmother select beefsteak<br />

tomatoes at her favorite farm stands.<br />

The eggs are pale tan, almost the color of desert<br />

sand. Gently, I roll one around in my hand, and retrieve a<br />

jumbo-sized Trader Joe’s egg from my fridge for informal<br />

comparison. The TJ’s egg is nutty brown, about 20 percent<br />

larger, and smooth. Store-bought eggs are washed to<br />

remove any surface film; fresh farm eggs are not sticky,<br />

but their shells are more tactile. I can’t readily discern<br />

anything on the tan egg by eyeballing it, but as I run it<br />

carefully under cold water I feel its skin-like covering dissolve<br />

between my fingers.<br />

I crack two of those tan eggs into an oiled iron skillet on<br />

my stovetop. The whites pool thick and close — they aren’t<br />

at all runny — and the brilliant orange yolks plop firm and<br />

round in the center, with a Jello-like bounce. I sprinkle them<br />

with ground pepper, think of a neighbor’s aptly nicknamed<br />

fried egg poppies, and flip the eggs with a smile.<br />

They taste delicious.<br />

We are officially in full summer swing and gallivanting around<br />

Pasadena is the thing to do. While trying new restaurants is<br />

literally my job, there are few things that I love more than visiting<br />

places that are tried and true favorites, whether or not I’ve already been<br />

there. Perhaps I trust reviews and recognition of restaurants in the city<br />

too much, but if our readers have nothing but good things to say, I can<br />

almost guarantee that I’ll love it. It seems as though Kabuki Japanese<br />

Restaurant is one of those longtime favorites that never disappoints,<br />

so I knew it was time for another visit. After a day of walking around<br />

Old Pasadena, a friend and I worked up an appetite and swung by the<br />

restaurant’s Colorado Boulevard location at around 2:30 — just in time<br />

to catch some of their amazing lunch specials.<br />

It wasn’t too crowded for a Saturday afternoon, so we were seated<br />

at a booth right away. I scoured through the menu and was so hungry;<br />

it was almost too much of a challenge to narrow down what it was I<br />

wanted to try. We overheard a waiter explain the lunch specials to the<br />

couple next to us with such enthusiasm that I knew that would be my best<br />

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

MORE THAN A MEAL<br />

couple next to us with such enthusiasm that I<br />

knew that would be my best bet, not to mention<br />

the price-per-portion ratio was amazing.<br />

It was easy to go with the Ninja Deluxe<br />

($12.95), which comes with chicken teriyaki,<br />

shrimp and vegetable tempura, and three pieces<br />

of a California Roll with miso soup, a side salad<br />

and rice. My friend and I shared the entirety of<br />

the meal. Miso and the side salad came out first,<br />

and both were delicious. The miso broth was one<br />

of the more flavorful soups I’ve had, and I got<br />

through the entire bowl of salad.<br />

Next came the remainder of the aptly named<br />

Ninja Deluxe. The tempura was delicious<br />

(although you can’t really go wrong with tempura),<br />

and the chicken serving was a good-sized portion<br />

alongside the rest of the meal. I don’t do sushi<br />

often, so this was the perfect combination for<br />

someone like me.<br />

My friend ordered the sushi moriawase, which<br />

was the ideal combination to get a roundup of<br />

the assorted sashimi that Kabuki serves. It came<br />

with tuna, salmon, yellowtail, shrimp, albacore<br />

and a California roll of six pieces, as well as a<br />

choice between miso soup or salad. He went with<br />

the salad. He wasn’t keen on the California Roll<br />

so he requested to substitute to a Philadelphia<br />

Roll for an extra dollar, and our waitress agreed.<br />

The entire meal came to only $14.95 without<br />

substitution and is a must-try during lunch hour.<br />

In addition to our combination plates, I ordered<br />

the California Tempura Roll ($8.95), which is a<br />

fried California roll served with eel sauce. It was<br />

clear that we both liked anything of the fried,<br />

tempura variety, and this fit the bill perfectly.<br />

Between the two combination plates that<br />

we shared with one another, and the additional<br />

specialty roll, we could not ask for more in terms<br />

of variety, amazing pricing, as well as an overall<br />

great experience. The fish and shrimp looked and<br />

tasted amazingly clean, the chicken was flavorful<br />

and tender, and all of our sides were outstanding<br />

on their own — not just fillers as is the case at<br />

many of the restaurants that I’ve frequented.<br />

We did request a drink menu but our waitress<br />

didn’t make her way back to take our orders.<br />

Luckily, we found ourselves too full to add more<br />

anyway. It would be best to save that for their<br />

great menu for happy hour, which is between 3<br />

and 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.<br />

Small sides ring in at $4.95, $5.95, and $6.95<br />

and include fried gyoza dumplings, sesame<br />

chicken, and calamari rings, just to name a few<br />

of the offerings. They have a short list of some<br />

of their best classic rolls for $3.50 and $4.50, and<br />

specialty rolls for $7.50 and $8.50. Happy hour<br />

drinks include two different cocktail options:<br />

the Tokyo Mojito ($8.50) or the Sake Sangria, my<br />

personal favorite for $7.50, and sake, wine, and<br />

beer.<br />

Stop by during the day or during the late<br />

evening hours and enjoy a good meal and drink.<br />

It’s no wonder Kabuki is such a favorite of<br />

JOYOUS JEWELRY<br />

Pasadena Bead & Design show held at Hilton Pasadena<br />

Friday through Sunday<br />

Since 1992, Bead & Design shows have promoted a wide<br />

diversity of exhibitors, with 2,500 artisans and tradespeople having<br />

traveled from 50 countries to come together and exhibit their<br />

work. This weekend, the latest Pasadena Bead & Design show will<br />

be held at the Hilton Pasadena, located at 168 S. Los Robles Ave.,<br />

Pasadena, bringing together hundreds of exhibitors with a broad<br />

array of intriguing talks for jewelry aficionados.<br />

Running from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day, the event features such<br />

workshops as “Jingle, Jangle, Bangles!” in which instructor Despina<br />

“Espie” Buoncristiani discusses her lifelong love of taking apart<br />

old necklaces and creating new pieces from them. Some hand tool<br />

experience is helpful but not required, with the workshop taking place from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday at a<br />

cost of $140.<br />

Another prime talk is “Let’s Face It! Copper Electoformed Pendant,” in which instructor Terry Henry<br />

will teach all skill levels how to create their own piece of wearable art by using the process of copper<br />

electroforming to turn porcelain cabochons into pendants. The cost is $135 plus a $75 to $95 materials<br />

fee.<br />

The cost for the show is $8 online or $10 at the door. Visit BeadandDesign.com.<br />

CLEARING THE AIR<br />

LA County Sheriff Alex Villanueva hosts Altadena town hall<br />

Aug. 1<br />

Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva will host a town hall<br />

meeting at 6:30 p.m. Aug. 1 at the Altadena Community Center, 730<br />

E. Altadena Dr., Altadena. The free and public event will provide an<br />

opportunity for people to have their voices heard.<br />

Villanueva defeated ex-Sheriff Jim McDonnell in November,<br />

and becoming the first candidate to oust an incumbent sheriff in<br />

more than a century. During his campaign, Villanueva vowed to<br />

kick federal Immigration and Custom Enforcement (ICE) agents<br />

out of LA County jails.<br />

Villanueva retired from the department in February 2018<br />

after more than 30 years on the job. He last worked as a watch<br />

commander at the sheriff’s Pico Rivera station, overseeing station deputies. He has never held a command<br />

position inside the department.<br />

McDonnell, the former chief of Long Beach police and a 29-year veteran of the Los Angeles Police<br />

Department, was elected in a landslide in 2014, pledging reform in the wake of a jail abuse and corruption<br />

scandal that led to the conviction of dozens of deputies and some of the top brass, including former Sheriff<br />

Lee Baca and former Undersheriff Paul Tanaka.<br />

BY PATTI CARMALT-VENER<br />

EMOTIONAL<br />

SERVICE<br />

STUDIES HAVE SHOWN THE POSITIVE<br />

EFFECTS OF CONTACT WITH ANIMALS<br />

Dear Patti,<br />

My dad is 76 and hasn’t been doing well ever since we lost my mom four years ago.<br />

He’s been depressed and isolating himself from friends and family. My sisters and<br />

I have been very worried and decided to get dad a dog. We found a wonderful rescue<br />

dog that my father named Champ. Ever since, little Champ has been the only thing<br />

that has lifted my father’s spirits. Unfortunately, Dad now gets anxious if he has to go<br />

anywhere without Champ.<br />

Dad’s neighbor told him that he could a get a certificate online to make Champ a<br />

therapy dog, and then he would be able to take Champ everywhere. My older sister<br />

believes that the online certificate is a scam and that in order to be legitimate Champ<br />

would have to become a service dog. My father insists that’s not true.<br />

I’m confused about what’s legal or not. Champ has been very good for my dad, and I<br />

don’t see anything wrong with taking him places if it helps dad feel better.<br />

— Diana<br />

Dear Diana,<br />

Many studies have shown the positive effects of contact with animals, such as improved<br />

energy levels, alleviation of anxiety, and a generalized positive effect on a person’s<br />

emotional wellbeing. Both Florence Nightingale and Sigmund Freud wrote about the<br />

emotional benefits that they observed pets had on their patients. Freud observed that the<br />

presence of his dog Jofi’ encouraged his patients struggling to open up emotionally. In my<br />

own practice, I often take my rescue dog Daisy with me and have clearly seen how her<br />

presence helps put patients at ease.<br />

While you’ve seen the positive effects that Champ has on your father’s mental state, it’s<br />

important to understand the difference between service animals and emotional support<br />

animals.<br />

A service dog is individually trained to perform tasks for someone with a physical,<br />

sensory, psychiatric, intellectual, or other mental disability. In order to qualify for a service<br />

animal, a person must be disabled in a way that substantially limits them in at least one<br />

major life function, such as caring for oneself, walking, seeing, or hearing. More minor<br />

impairments do not qualify. Service animals are trained to work with their handler’s<br />

disability and must know how to perform tasks on command. Common types of service<br />

animals include guide dogs for visual impairments, hearing or signal dogs for hearing impairments,<br />

and psychiatric service dogs that are trained to detect and alleviate psychiatric<br />

episodes. Providing companionship or protection are not considered appropriate service<br />

animal duties.<br />

In your dad’s case, it doesn’t sound like he would meet the disability requirements for<br />

a service dog. Instead, it might be a good idea for him to get evaluated for an emotional<br />

support animal.<br />

An emotional support animal (ESA) provides therapeutic benefits, such as comfort and<br />

emotional support, to a person suffering from a medically diagnosed mental, emotional,<br />

or other qualifying disability. Support animals provide companionship and relieve stress,<br />

loneliness, depression, anxiety, or phobias. However, they do not receive specialized training<br />

to perform tasks that assist people with disabilities. While service animals must be<br />

ready to perform specific tasks on cue, an ESA’s job is solely to provide emotional comfort.<br />

To qualify for an ESA, a person must be diagnosed with a qualifying disability by a<br />

licensed mental health professional. There are 40 disabilities that can qualify, including<br />

anxiety, depression, insomnia, and schizophrenia. The mental health professional must<br />

provide their patient with an ESA letter, stating that an ESA will directly benefit their patient<br />

in regard to one or more symptoms of his/her disability. The patient should carry the<br />

letter at all times when out in public with their ESA.<br />

It is not possible to receive a valid ESA letter without speaking to a licensed mental<br />

health professional, preferably in person. There are many scam websites that will claim to<br />

evaluate a person’s need for an ESA online and provide an ESA letter or certification, but<br />

these are fraudulent. Any website that claims that to determine a person’s need for an ESA,<br />

without the person speaking to a licensed mental health professional, is unlawful.<br />

Although no training is legally required for ESAs, it would be preferable for Champ to<br />

receive basic obedience and conditioning training. Champ would be expected to be under<br />

your father’s control at all times and perform his therapeutic duties in a non-disruptive<br />

manner. Unlike service animals, ESAs do not have public access rights to private businesses<br />

or restaurants. However, many businesses choose to allow ESAs, although they may ask<br />

to see an ESA letter as a condition of permitting entrance. n<br />

VALLI GUY<br />

JOHN LLOYD YOUNG TURNS HIS TONY-WINNING<br />

STARRING ROLE AS FRANKIE VALLI IN<br />

‘JERSEY BOYS’ INTO A CLASSIC POP<br />

EXTRAVAGANZA SUNDAY AT THE ROSE<br />

BY CARL KOZLOWSKI<br />

No actor in the history of Broadway has managed to make as big an<br />

impact with one role as John Lloyd Young did with his star turn as<br />

1960s singing superstar Frankie Valli in the instant smash musical a<br />

“Jersey Boys.” In 2006, at just 31 years old, he became the only actor to date<br />

to have received Lead Actor in a Musical Tony, Drama Desk, Outer Critics<br />

Circle and Theatre World awards for a Broadway debut.<br />

He went on to reach double platinum status with the play’s cast album,<br />

as it attained the rare feat of selling over two million copies, and then went<br />

on to another milestone when director Clint Eastwood picked him to play<br />

Valli in the 2014 movie version of the play. Yet Young has been eager to<br />

introduce himself to his “Jersey” fans and other music lovers, and will do<br />

so locally with a Sunday night concert at The Rose in Pasadena.<br />

“Right now, not promoting an album so much as singing from an album<br />

of retro hits I made and also ‘Jersey Boys,’ a ‘get to know me’ tour outside<br />

PW OPINION PW NEWS PW LIFE PW ARTS<br />

John Lloyd Young in Jersey Boys<br />

of playing Frankie Valli, which is how most<br />

know me,” says Young. “We do a string of<br />

dates everywhere, just did San Francisco, and<br />

have several East Coast dates next month. I<br />

do a good amount of Frankie Valli songs, but<br />

also other classics from that era, like ‘Hold<br />

Me Thrill Me Kiss Me’ by Mel Carter, ‘Lady<br />

Willpower,’ ‘Unchained Melody.’ It’s a night of<br />

‘Jersey Boys’ songs, early rock, R&B and doo<br />

wop.”<br />

Young landed the coveted role of Valli after<br />

establishing himself in off-Broadway theater<br />

in New York City for several years. The play<br />

had originated at the La Jolla Playhouse before<br />

heading to Broadway and he had lost out to<br />

another actor on that early version, but he<br />

“seized the role and was ready for it” when the<br />

producers recast it for the Great White Way a<br />

year later.<br />

He immediately headed to Vegas to see<br />

Valli in action after landing the role, but didn’t<br />

choose to meet the legendary singer. Instead,<br />

he “took notes on a napkin” while observing<br />

his performance and then set about getting to<br />

know Bob Gaudio, who was a fellow member<br />

of the Four Seasons and thus one of the<br />

real-life “Jersey Boys,” in addition to being the<br />

vocal group’s songwriter.<br />

“I really needed to fly to Vegas because<br />

YouTube had just debuted so I had no video<br />

footage to study his face and physicality,”<br />

recalls Young. “I studied Frankie’s recordings<br />

because I had to get close vocally, but I had<br />

a lunch with Bob since I felt someone’s best<br />

friend would get you closer to the truth than<br />

the person themselves.<br />

“The biggest takeaway was he was deeply<br />

influential in doing the show on Broadway,<br />

London and the movie with Eastwood,” Young<br />

continues. “Basically he told me that before I<br />

even set into a script or rehearsal room, that<br />

Frankie Valli is a little man with a big heart<br />

and I think that comes through now in the<br />

singing. Now I’m not singing as Frankie but<br />

I’m singing as myself, I’m a little man, I do<br />

have a big heart, and I put a lot of that into my<br />

singing.”<br />

Young played on Broadway for the first two<br />

years of its 11-year run, and also played six<br />

weeks on London’s storied West End before returning<br />

to the Broadway production for a few<br />

months in 2013. He knew that Valli was “one<br />

of those once in a lifetime roles, like F. Murray<br />

Abraham had in ‘Amadeus,’ Dustin Hoffman<br />

in ‘Tootsie,’ or Ben Kingsley in ‘Gandhi,’” and<br />

loved “the really cool and huge opportunity to<br />

play a beloved singer in a movie that could last<br />

generations like ‘La Bamba’ or ‘The Doors.’”<br />

“It was very different winning the role for<br />

Clint, because I had made such an impression<br />

in the original,” says Young. “It was years<br />

later when Clint was attached to the movie so<br />

I was grateful to be remembered and at least<br />

audition for the movie. But what did it was I<br />

was back on the show when he was putting it<br />

together and he went to see me on Broadway<br />

at my absolute best, and as a result I didn’t<br />

even have to audition for him. My performance<br />

onstage was my audition.”<br />

There have been other amazing experiences<br />

along the way, as he performed<br />

with his original Broadway cast mates at<br />

appearances before Congress and at the<br />

White House as well. In fact, he made such<br />

a strong impression on President Barack<br />

Obama, who had the cast perform at a state<br />

dinner for the Japanese prime minister since<br />

it was the PM’s favorite movie, that he was<br />

appointed to the President’s Committee on<br />

the Arts and Humanities.<br />

Young resigned from the commission<br />

in August 2017 in protest against what he<br />

deemed President Donald Trump’s “hateful<br />

rhetoric.” He recently moved to Pasadena,<br />

making this hometown show easy on his<br />

schedule.<br />

“I’m a New Yorker born and bred, so for me<br />

to be able to go to Old Pasadena and have any<br />

cuisine the world has to offer at so many of<br />

those restaurants, IPic movie theater, and the<br />

South Pasadena farmer’s market is a real joy,”<br />

says Young. “I joined Michael Feinstein for the<br />

season finale at the Arboretum last year, an<br />

easy car ride from my house. I’m a Buddhist, I<br />

speak Mandarin and there’s a lot of Mandarin<br />

in San Marino, so I feel really at home.” n<br />

John Lloyd Young performs at 9 p.m. Sunday at The Rose,<br />

245 E. Green St., Pasadena. Tickets are $28 to $58. Call<br />

The Australian singer-songwriter is self-assured<br />

enough not to crowd her smoky alto with<br />

anything but her electric guitar and spare drum<br />

fills for opening track “Play the Game.” That sets<br />

expectations for brooding atmosphere, which are<br />

then upended when drums turn stormy during the<br />

wary “Soon,” but surprise is built into this 11-track<br />

set. McMahon has a knack for composing strong,<br />

melodic pop songs that capture the duality of desire<br />

and defeatism with concise honesty, conveyed<br />

in shimmering tones. Highlights: the ingratiating<br />

“Slow Mover,” “Pasta” (“How am I simultaneously<br />

the view”). RIYL Laura Jean Anderson, Phoebe<br />

UK OCTET IBIBIO SOUND MACHINE BRINGS ITS THRILLING ELECTRO-FUNK-DISCO-<br />

WEST AFRICAN HIGHLIFE FUSION TO MOROCCAN LOUNGE TUESDAY<br />

Ibibio Sound Machine frontwoman<br />

Eno Williams sings<br />

more in English than on<br />

previous recordings during<br />

“Doko Mien,” the album the UK<br />

octet released here in March, but<br />

that did not signal a shift away<br />

from the Nigerian folk tales or<br />

West African highlife rhythms<br />

from which the first-generation<br />

Londoner has drawn inspiration<br />

since ISM’s self-titled 2014<br />

debut. It’s just another element in<br />

the collective’s expanding sonic<br />

palette, which they’re bringing to<br />

Moroccan Lounge in Downtown<br />

LA Tuesday night.<br />

“Nyak Mien” feels like a<br />

party-time shout across cultures,<br />

with ululating, reverb-processed<br />

calls that promptly give way to<br />

horn blasts, synths, and Ghanian<br />

guitarist Alfred Bannerman’s<br />

cheery highlife guitar lines.<br />

Prince would doubtless have<br />

approved of dance floor magnets<br />

like “Wanna Come Down,” “Basquiat”<br />

and disco-fied title track<br />

“Tell Me (Doko Mien).” ISM’s<br />

20 PASADENA WEEKLY | <strong>07.25.19</strong><br />

hip-twitching combination of<br />

squiggly synths, elastic grooves,<br />

marching drumbeats, electronic<br />

bleeps, Afrobeat horns and Bannerman’s<br />

funky leads instantly<br />

brings the Purple One to mind,<br />

while Williams’ smoky warmth<br />

is occasionally reminiscent of<br />

Caron Wheeler during Soul II<br />

Soul’s late-’80s heyday, especially<br />

during “Kuka” or when Williams<br />

invokes the hypnotic title phrase<br />

of “I Know That You’re Thinking<br />

About Me” or turns inward for<br />

“Quiet” (from ISM’s captivating<br />

2017 album “Uyai”). The swaying,<br />

bilingual “Guess We Found<br />

a Way” at album’s end comes<br />

across like a declaration of<br />

universal soul: “Guess we found<br />

a way to speak to you/ Guess we<br />

found a way to say what’s true/<br />

To say what’s real.”<br />

ISM’s one of the more exciting<br />

bands to storm the global stage<br />

over the past decade, threading<br />

together intercontinental<br />

rhythms and stories of citizens of<br />

the world. Williams is the undeniable<br />

musical centerpoint of their<br />

polyrhythmic fusion. Onstage,<br />

she’s a commanding presence,<br />

fronting the colorfully garbed<br />

ensemble like the most joyful<br />

of no-nonsense divas, dancing<br />

and smiling wide while singing<br />

with enough fervent emotion that<br />

words sometimes feel superfluous.<br />

That said, unless you speak<br />

Ibibio it won’t be obvious that<br />

the indignant “Give Me a Reason”<br />

(from “Uyai”) protests Boko<br />

Haram’s notorious kidnapping<br />

of 276 schoolgirls. There’s no<br />

mistaking her demands or message<br />

during the Donna-Summerwould-be-proud<br />

anthem “She<br />

Work Very Hard” or the terrifically<br />

funky “I Need You to Be Sweet<br />

Like Sugar (Nnge Nte Suka).”<br />

Don’t be surprised if Angelenos<br />

sing along on Tuesday. n<br />

for answers, balance, and connection, this<br />

unpretentious set turns out to be a timely response<br />

to an unsettling, uncertain world. Highlights:<br />

“Wild Animals” (“When did acting dumb stop<br />

Farsighted Theater<br />

A NOISE WITHIN PRESENTS INVISION FESTIVAL, STAGED READINGS<br />

OF FUTURE PRODUCTIONS, FRIDAY THROUGH SUNDAY<br />

As one of the best repertory theaters in<br />

the nation, A Noise Within has devoted<br />

more than 25 years to presenting<br />

elaborate and inventive productions of<br />

classic plays ranging from the best of<br />

Shakespeare to “Man of La Mancha”<br />

and the farce “Noises Off.” This weekend,<br />

they will be spotlighting several of<br />

the plays they are considering for the<br />

future by hosting staged readings of<br />

several shows in the InVision festival<br />

from Friday through Sunday.<br />

ANW is teaming up with some of<br />

the top ethnic theaters in the Los Angeles<br />

area to ensure a spirit of diversity<br />

and inclusion, following the initial<br />

festival in 2016. The packed schedule<br />

will begin with a happy hour at 6:30<br />

p.m. Friday in the ANW lobby, followed<br />

by two staged readings at 8 p.m.: Branden<br />

Jacobs-Jenkins’ “Appropriate” by<br />

ANW and Anton Chekhov’s “The Sinner<br />

from Toledo” performed by the Latino<br />

Theatre Company.<br />

Saturday will feature “Eduardo<br />

Machado’s “Broken Eggs” at 2 p.m.<br />

and a second reading of “Appropriate”<br />

at 5 p.m., with a special dinner<br />

under the front lawn tent running from<br />

5 p.m. and lasting long enough for<br />

“Appropriate” attendees to enjoy the<br />

meal. The evening will end with the fi rst<br />

readings of Amiri Baraka’s “Dutchman”<br />

and Douglas Turner Ward’s “Day of<br />

Absence” performed by Lower Depth<br />

BY CARL KOZLOWSKI<br />

Theatre Ensemble in the Lawrence Hall<br />

rehearsal room and Philip Dawkins’ “Le<br />

Switch” by ANW at mainstage at 8 p.m.<br />

Sunday will see ANW produce a<br />

reading of Lauren Gunderson’s “The<br />

Book of Will” at 2 p.m., while Lower<br />

Depth Theatre Ensemble will perform<br />

second readings of “Dutchman” and<br />

“Day of Absence” at 5 p.m. before a<br />

fi nal dinner under the front lawn tent<br />

from 5:30 p.m. The fest closes out with<br />

the East West Players of Frances Ya-<br />

Chu Cowhig’s “Snow in Midsummer” at<br />

7:30 p.m.<br />

“The main thing is that a festival like<br />

this creates a conversation,” says festival<br />

co-organizer and ANW resident artist<br />

Deborah Strang. “The last theme was<br />

‘American Dream,’ so all the shows were<br />

American plays and the discussions were<br />

about the playwrights, the plays and how<br />

they related to one another.<br />

“This year’s is a vision of the world<br />

where we all live together in all communities<br />

— whatever race, gender or<br />

age,” she adds. “All of them deal with<br />

that sort of conversation. Everybody is<br />

welcome to come, and the discussions<br />

after the shows will have people of<br />

different backgrounds sitting down and<br />

speaking with one another. Our patrons<br />

from the fi rst fest asked when are you<br />

going to do this again? So we know the<br />

anticipation for this is great.”<br />

Another key fi gure in the fest is Kinan<br />

Valdez, a 25-year ensemble member of El<br />

Teatro Campesino who will be directing<br />

the LTC’s production of “The Sinner from<br />

Toledo.” The play asks the question: If<br />

you were forced to choose between the<br />

love of your life and absolution for your<br />

sins, what would you do? Would you save<br />

your soul or the soul of the one you love<br />

the most?<br />

“It’s essentially an adaptation by Oliver<br />

Mayer of the Chekhov short story,<br />

and it’s a little-known short story that<br />

he thought would be excellent source<br />

material and it has relevance in this day<br />

and age,” says Valdez. “It takes place<br />

in the time of the Spanish Inqusition,<br />

which lasted quite a few centuries.<br />

“It was a time when Spain had completely<br />

managed to finish new conquests<br />

and reclaimed national territories, then<br />

forcibly removing Muslims and Jewish<br />

populations and making them convert,”<br />

continues Valdez. “In this day and age,<br />

there’s this spread of reactionary impulses.<br />

It’s a piece that refl ects that, and<br />

that’s the power of theater.” ■<br />

The InVision Festival takes place from 6:30<br />

p.m. Friday through Sunday night at A Noise<br />

Within, 3352 E. Foothill Blvd., Pasadena.<br />

Admission to each reading is free, with the<br />

dinners costing $25 per person. VIP passes<br />

QUENTIN TARANTINO’S “ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD”<br />

MIGHT BE OVERLONG, BUT IT STILL HAS SOME MAGIC<br />

There’s a strange allure hidden beneath the surface of<br />

some of Quentin Tarantino’s most popular films: his<br />

willingness to audaciously rewrite history and play<br />

games with time in order to achieve a happy ending despite<br />

the bleakest of circumstances.<br />

In “Django Unchained,” Jamie Foxx’s title character<br />

got to unleash hell upon his slave owners and exact brutal<br />

retribution in a way that few if any real-life slaves were able<br />

to achieve. And in “Inglourious Basterds,” a ragtag team of<br />

soldiers were able to wipe out Hitler and his highest circle<br />

of Nazis in a blaze of fiery glory.<br />

In his latest film, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” the<br />

writer-director plays fast and loose with one of the most<br />

gruesome mass killings in modern times on the eve of its<br />

50th anniversary: the murder of pregnant actress Sharon<br />

Tate and four of her friends on Aug. 8, 1969 by members of<br />

Charles Manson’s psychopathic cult.<br />

“Hollywood” centers its focus primarily upon two<br />

fictitious side characters — a fading 1950s-era TV Western<br />

star named Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his best<br />

friend and stuntman, Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) — who are<br />

slowly slipping down the drain of the film and TV industry<br />

a decade after their prime. Rick at first is in denial about<br />

his fall from being the heroic star of a series called “Bounty<br />

Law” in the late ’50s to being a guest bad guy on sporadic<br />

TV series at the time of the movie in 1969.<br />

As Rick veers between a falsely strong front and<br />

frequent crying jags, both compounded by too much liquor,<br />

Cliff is carefree and laughing his way through life. But<br />

when Rick gets told by a producer (Al Pacino) that his only<br />

shot at regaining stardom lies in heading to Italy to make<br />

Westerns and James Bond knockoffs, both men face a fearful<br />

look at reality.<br />

Meanwhile, real-life actress Sharon Tate (Margot<br />

Robbie) is on the rise, and lives next door to Rick with<br />

her acclaimed director husband Roman Polanski. Rick<br />

believes that if he can just get a chance to interact with the<br />

power couple, they would give him the opportunity to be a<br />

star again.<br />

The third main storyline follows a mysterious group of<br />

young women whom Cliff keeps running into while driving<br />

around Hollywood. When he agrees on the third sighting to<br />

give one particular woman a ride to where she lives under<br />

the rule of Charles Manson at a place called Spahn Ranch,<br />

he realizes something very strange and very wrong is looming<br />

among that group in the hills.<br />

Tarantino ultimately weaves these three highly disparate<br />

strands together in a very bizarre, action-packed<br />

Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio and Al Pacino in “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood “<br />

alternate reality in its final half hour. The sequence is funny<br />

and exciting, but it left a funny taste in my mouth when<br />

considering that the film is in a way making light of a horrific<br />

situation.<br />

If you don’t mind a movie bending reality on a tragic<br />

circumstance to create a happy ending, you’ll be fine with<br />

its approach. If you think that tragedies are sacrosanct,<br />

you won’t.<br />

That said, “Hollywood” continues Tarantino’s tradition<br />

of drawing iconic performances out of his leads, with<br />

DiCaprio and Pitt clearly having a blast playing these two<br />

good ol’ boys while still showing layers of emotional depth<br />

at unexpected moments. DiCaprio in particular is fun to<br />

watch as he reveals his impressive comedic abilities in a<br />

tightrope performance that recalls his excellent work in<br />

“The Wolf of Wall Street,” and the pairing of perhaps the<br />

two top movie stars of our times is an ingenious delight.<br />

Robbie as Tate has less to do, as she’s mostly seen as a<br />

sweet party girl who happens to be landing some key roles<br />

and spends a big chunk of her screen time watching herself<br />

in a movie at the Bruin Theatre in Westwood, soaking up<br />

the laughter of the audience around her. The Manson cult<br />

members are mostly ciphers, with Manson barely appearing<br />

onscreen at all.<br />

The fact that the Tate and Manson cult stories are<br />

relatively sparse in the movie poses some structural problems<br />

that make them of less interest than they should be.<br />

Tarantino also weakens the film by indulging his overlong<br />

plot to a punishing 165 minutes (that’s two hours and 45<br />

minutes, folks!), with at least four major scenes seeming to<br />

be 10 or 15 minutes long when they should have been three<br />

to five minutes, tops.<br />

Yet, in considering the film overnight before writing<br />

this review, I wound up with a greater appreciation for its<br />

unique vibe and strange sense of optimism. There is an<br />

incredible amount of attention to detail throughout, with<br />

Tarantino’s most enjoyable soundtrack since “Pulp Fiction,”<br />

a terrific soundscape utilizing classic radio ads from<br />

the period and amazing set design that truly transforms<br />

Hollywood back to 1969.<br />

It’s also a kinder, gentler film than one would expect<br />

from this master of fast-bursting graphic violence (well, until<br />

the finale, which is gruesomely funny nonetheless) and<br />

one that those seeking fun characters, an unpredictable<br />

plot and the ability to sit for nearly three hours in a theatre<br />

should enjoy. n<br />

on the job will be required<br />

to take all reasonable steps necessary<br />

to avoid inconvenience and disruptions<br />

to the Project site’s neighbors.<br />

the potential to excessively disrupt<br />

who receives award of the Contract<br />

may, at its sole cost and expense,<br />

substitute approved securities equivalent<br />

to any retained funds withheld by<br />

the City to ensure performance of the<br />

Work or, in the alternative, request<br />

the City make payment of retention<br />

to an escrow agent. Notwithstanding<br />

the foregoing, such Contractor shall<br />

have thirty (30) calendar days following<br />

award of the Contract to submit a<br />

written request to the City to permit the<br />

substitution of securities for retention<br />

or payment to an escrow agent; failure<br />

to do so shall be deemed a waiver of<br />

the right.<br />

appear at the hearing and state your<br />

objections or file written objections<br />

with the court before the hearing. Your<br />

appearance may be in person or by<br />

your attorney.<br />

IF YOU ARE A CREDI-<br />

TOR or a contingent creditor of the<br />

decedent, you must file your claim<br />

with the court and mail a copy to the<br />

or personal delivery to you of a notice<br />

under section 9052 of the California<br />

Probate Code.<br />

Other California statutes<br />

and legal authority may affect<br />

your rights as a creditor. You may want<br />

to consult with an attorney knowledgeable<br />

in California law.<br />

YOU MAY EXAMINE<br />

the file kept by the court. If you are a<br />

person interested in the estate, you<br />

may file with the court a Request for<br />

Special Notice (form DE-154) of the<br />

filing of an inventory and appraisal<br />

of estate assets or of any petition or<br />

account as provided in Probate Code<br />

A PETITION FOR<br />

THE PETITION FOR<br />

PROBATE requests that Edward Joe<br />

court.<br />

THE PETITION requests<br />

authority to administer the<br />

estate under the Independent Administration<br />

of Estates Act. (This authority<br />

will allow the personal representative<br />

to take many actions without obtaining<br />

court approval. Before taking certain<br />

very important actions, however,<br />

the personal representative will be<br />

required to give notice to interested<br />

persons unless they have waived<br />

notice or consented to the proposed<br />

action.) The independent administration<br />

an interested person files an objection<br />

to the petition and shows good cause<br />

why the court should not grant the authority.<br />

A HEARING on the petition<br />

will be held on August 15, 2019<br />

at 8:30 AM in Dept. No. 99 located<br />

at 111 N. Hill St., Los Angeles, CA<br />

IF YOU OBJECT to the<br />

granting of the petition, you should<br />

appear at the hearing and state your<br />

objections or file written objections<br />

with the court before the hearing. Your<br />

appearance may be in person or by<br />

your attorney.<br />

IF YOU ARE A CREDI-<br />

TOR or a contingent creditor of the<br />

decedent, you must file your claim<br />

with the court and mail a copy to the<br />

personal representative appointed by<br />

the court within the later of either (1)<br />

four months from the date of first issuance<br />

of letters to a general personal<br />

representative, as defined in section<br />

58(b) of the California Probate Code,<br />

or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing<br />

or personal delivery to you of a notice<br />

under section 9052 of the California<br />

Probate Code.<br />

Other California statutes<br />

and legal authority may affect<br />

your rights as a creditor. You may want<br />

to consult with an attorney knowledgeable<br />

in California law.<br />

YOU MAY EXAMINE<br />

the file kept by the court. If you are a<br />

person interested in the estate, you<br />

may file with the court a Request for<br />

Special Notice (form DE-154) of the<br />

filing of an inventory and appraisal<br />

of estate assets or of any petition or<br />

account as provided in Probate Code<br />

section 1250. A Request for Special<br />

that there are risks involved in bidding<br />

at a trustee auction. You will be<br />

bidding on a lien, not on the property<br />

trustee auction does not automatically<br />

entitle you to free and clear ownership<br />

aware that the lien being auctioned<br />

off may be a junior lien. If you are the<br />

highest bidder at the auction, you are<br />

or may be responsible for paying off all<br />

liens senior to the lien being auctioned<br />

off, before you can receive clear title<br />

to the property. You are encouraged<br />

to investigate the existence, priority,<br />

and size of outstanding liens that may<br />

exist on this property by contacting<br />

the county recorder’s office or a title<br />

insurance company, either of which<br />

may charge you a fee for this information.<br />

If you consult either of these resources,<br />

you should be aware that the<br />
