Educational Writings-Discourse, Part XXV: the Life and Times of Beverly Carrick—World-Famous Artist, Part Four!” by Moses Scharbug III

 


 Back Row: Florence and Gene Jamison; front row: Brian, Patrick, and Beverly Carrick, early 1960s.
 

Bakersfield, CA, 12-25-2012 T:  Merry Christmas and welcome to the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, the place where we work hard promoting the needs of the professional culinary industry and those working in it.  Life is truly not easy now nor does it seem as though it is going to get better in 2013, in fact, it would appear that things are going to hell as Americans embrace socialism more and more.  The United States is a nation built upon the economic tenets of capitalism, an economic environment where the strong survive and the weak either adapt or fall by the wayside.  Our current government seeks to bring us under the socialist umbrella and that means taxes are going to skyrocket next year and all of us are going to be responsible for those who are irresponsible.  The opportunity to make money is going to disappear as did the life of Beverly Carrick, one of the wealthiest artists in the world, on November 29, 2012.  Some conclude that it was the reelection of Barack Obama that finally pushed her over the edge.  We shall talk about that aspect of her death later. Now, however, we shall pick up where we left off yesterday.
 
HARRY HALL CARRICK

  
The last months the family remained in Whittier, California, prior to the move north in the year 1967 was not a pleasant one.  While Harry Carrick went north in search of housing and to see where he would be working, Beverly remained at home with her two sons.  Patrick was preparing for his new life as a married student living at USC while Brian continued to undergo torment of what would become of his life when the family moved.  He had a hard time saying his “goodbyes” to his friends at school and it went on for several months.  He still had issues with the dark and with unknown persons striving to enter the house, kidnap him, and possibly murder his mother.  Years before, around the time when his father had pounded his wife in their bedroom late one night and blackened her eye, it occurred at about the same time as the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.  Harry and Beverly were going to Las Vegas, Nevada, not long after this tragic event and Brian begged his Mother to be careful, to be on the lookout for any attempt by his Father to murder her.

Beverly was somewhat surprised and reassured her troubled son not to worry but it did little to soothe his nerves.  Mrs. Tabor, a Hungarian refugee who escaped her native country before the Russian tanks rolled in babysat the kids while the parents were away and every night would help Brian to call his Mother in the city that never sleeps to reassure him that she was still alive.  Mrs. Tabor related the fear emanating from the child to his parents who both shrugged it off but then in 1967 when these fears returned and intensified, it caused them to send him to a respected child psychiatrist who did his best to help him.  Unfortunately, after a year’s therapy, he was no closer to discovering the truth than he had been when they started.

When the summer of 1967 arrived, it was a tumultuous time for not only the family but for the nation as well.  It was the era of the “Summer of Love” in San Francisco, hippies were everywhere, stories of psychedelic drugs, collapsing morals, and rising crime levels perpetrated the news media.  Brother Patrick, now a married man, shoved off for USC to prepare for his first year while his mother, father, and younger brother headed north to Bakersfield.  The family, obviously was no stranger to the city but now that they were going to live there, it caused the youngest son some consternation.  For one thing, he would be staying with his grandparents while his Mother and Father would be busy searching for a new home and also staying at the famed Bakersfield Inn.  There was not enough room to live with her parents in their house on Robert’s Lane in Oildale, California nor would they have stayed there had there’d been.

Harry was not welcome there other than for the obligatory visits but since he was a major executive, he and his wife had to stay somewhere nice.  Beverly, too, had no wish to return to her parents’ home except to visit and so they left the youngest son there for days at a time while they went in search of house and back and forth between Los Angeles and Bakersfield, some 180 miles distant from one another to finish business at home.  They had to sell their house, transfer accounts, hire a moving company to transport their household furnishings to their new home, and to do myriad other things that go along with moving to another city.  Brian was lucky if he saw his Mother sooner than a week or longer and so stayed with his Grandparents and his Uncle and Aunt.

Don’t get me wrong, Brian loved his Grandparents, Uncle Gene, and Auntie Elaine but Oildale was not a place he cared for other than to visit.  For one thing, Bakersfield and Kern County are horribly hot during the summer months and years ago, it seemed to be even worse than what it is now.  With nothing more than swamp coolers, one in the family store across the street and another in the house of Clarence and Florence Jamison on the other side, it never seemed to be cool enough.  Some talk about Global Warming now like it is a recent thing and yet, the summer of ’67 in Kern County was horrible, it was so hot that one could fry the proverbial egg on the sidewalk.  The heat shimmered across the road mirage-like and dust devils swirled everywhere as the State of California had an ongoing widening project of Roberts Lane underway.  Other than roaming the store or checking out the livestock in the back acre, playing with the dachshunds, Hugo and Anna Marie, there was nothing to do.

After a simple dinner in the early evening when the Hobby Shop his Grandparents owned, the family would sit outside in the back of the store by the incinerator and watch the toads come out and pursue insects.  In an hour or so, they opened up their slot car track that Clarence had painstakingly built in one of the former chicken sheds in the back lot and their second business commenced for the night.  Avid slot car enthusiasts would come and race their cars on some of the best tracks in town and there, Brian learned his first rudimentary lessons about standing behind a counter and helping customers.  This was the one bright spot in an otherwise miserable day and it did some to kill his concerns about how his Mother was doing.  He loved his Grandparents but was fearful of having to live with them forever because it was a somewhat alien life for him.  He knew one place, had tons of friends, an exciting life away from home, and now a harsh three months wondering as to where he would be living, what his new school would be like, and if the horrible home life he knew so well down south would fire up again?

At night, he lay in the backroom of his Grandparents’ wooden house, the swamp cooler blowing in their bedroom failing to come around back as it had to first exit the adults’ bedroom, roam through the cramped living room, make a left turn and go through the kitchen, onto the back porch and into a small room where he and his Brother Patrick once slept.  By the time it reached him in the back, it was practically nonexistent and the sweat would pour off his trembling body as he suffered in the dark.  No one knew or understood the misery under which, he had been going and in the Spartan lifestyle of the older folks, nor would they have understood—he was on his own.
Brian Carrick in 1969- when things began to go wrong...



Eventually, Beverly and Harry arrived at the store with the good news that they had found a large home in the Alta Vista area of the city, several miles away from the lowlands of Oildale, up toward the bluffs but a little way south of the magnificent southern shoreline of the ancient sea, it marked.  Long ago, when dinosaurs roamed the world, the southern San Joaquin Valley was actually a seabed, which commenced at the southern spur of the Tehachapi Mountains that separated the valley from Los Angeles.  It once stretched all the way to Stockton, California, where they still have connection with the waterways of the Bay Area.  The area where the bluffs were marked the fall off into the deepest depths of the prehistoric sea and many different kinds of gigantic sharks roamed the area in search of food.  Somewhere to the north and east of Bakersfield lies, an area called Shark’s Tooth Hill, a place where dinosaur hunters have looked long and hard collecting fossils for display in various museums around the country and the world.  It also is the hotbed of a dire fungal infection known as Valley Fever, something that most contract in their lifetime at one point or another and get over while some get devastating cases of it and die.

The house was large, old, and quite dark when Brian was first introduced to it and it instilled in him a certain amount of fear.  For one thing, it was fairly old, having been built in the 1940s and if a house ever appeared to be a “haunted house,” than 500 Magnolia Avenue was it.  The rooms were different sizes with lots of places in which one could hide, the ceilings were high, lofty arches, winding hallways, steps up and down, dark, creepy, and strange, like something out of the old black-and-white movie, The Haunting.  Brian did not like it but it was to be his new home so he walked around the house peering into this corner and that, then went out into the backyard, visited the reclusive guest house, walked around the large rectangular pool, down into the lower yard, and roamed among the various fruit trees.  All he wanted to do was to return to Whittier and all he got was to be returned to Oildale and his grandparents’ care while his parents went about the business of making it into their home.

The summer dragged on and seldom did Brian see his Mother or his Brother, Patrick.  As far as his Father was concerned, he didn’t care if he ever saw him again, the only good thing about living with his Grandparents was the absence of strife—they never had problems.  Soon, the school year would start and on one occasion, Beverly took him to see his new school, Noble Elementary School about a mile from home, here he would start afresh in Sixth Grade. 

The school horrified him, it had NO grass except in the front, the backside was dirt the city sprayed oil on to keep it down, no trees, very little grass in a quad, lots of bungalows for the extra students and for the first time in his life, more minority students than he ever knew existed.  Somehow, he would have to adjust, his Mother reassured him that he would be fine but no one knew the depths of the growing depression beginning to build in him.  It was at this point that his personality would change forever but no one had a clue.

As always, we have a great time around here and that is why we want all of you to become a part of the organization by submitting articles to us for inspection and full-credit.  It is a great thing if you would do this, as it is a symbiotic relationship: we give you the space to share your recipes and in return, you send us more and more people who will become dedicated followers of the END.  Currently of multi-diversity across the Internet, it is important that we hear the voices of more and more people from all walks of the foodservice profession —join us. We urge our readership to write to us, leave comments, and if there are any of you, who would care to write an article for us, please get in touch via Magnolia Hilltop Brewers, P.O. Box 20669, Bakersfield, CA 93390-0669.  We obviously do not pay anything but give YOU full byline and that, my friends, is worth its weight in gold.  We want as many people who want to write to be able to do so and we believe that by presenting a forum for our fellow chefs, we are doing something for our beloved industry.  We love diversity and hope to add new and different authors to our pantheon of chefs, food and beverage directors, and culinary professionals.  Come on and join us, it will be fun! Expect that when all of us have run through our cycle, we will be introducing some brand-new talent or so Stinky says.

Friends, things have changed regarding the AARC Technology Company in Bakersfield, CA, we are now going to promote them over the course of time due to their making things right by us and helping us with our computer situation.  We do not wish to boycott anyone in this wonderful world and the fact that both AARC and Nerds on Call.com are on board with us is a good thing.  People, buy all of your computers from AARC Technology in Bakersfield, CA, they build the best equipment and make the best products and we hope that you check them out.  If the world is going to end, why not add a new computer to your wish list of holiday gifts as remember, it is only money and we cannot take it with us!  

          Do have a very lovely Merry Christmas, my Christian friends, and never give up the fight for the First Amendment Rights guaranteed us in the Constitution of the United States!  The nation is not going Muslim yet but how long we can keep it from doing so remains to be seen.  When we have the kind of people we currently do residing in government, it is clear that they have an ongoing agenda to transform this nation into one of believers.  As long as we have our freedoms, we will continue fighting for the rights of Americans to practice their chosen religions and without interference from the federal government.  The year, 2014 now looms ahead as the last chance to keep the nation from going over the edge but if we lose the House, then the nation is lost.  We have people on our Facebook pages actively promoting the demise of the Republican Party and you know, I may agree with them as I believe the Tea Party is going to be a force within the next two years.  Enough of getting along with the enemy, I your host says, “Fuck them!”  That is not something most practicing Jews would say publicly but enough is enough!        

          Friends, please buy your holiday gifts as soon as possible, so you if the world does continue, you and yours can enjoy them.  Nothing says “I love you” better than a Beverly Carrick painting and now that the artist has passed away, her paintings are invaluable.  Buy now by calling us at 661-831-2544 after looking at the beverlycarrick.com website.   

          I have someone else I need to promote here as well and that is the Westchester Hair Company located in Bakersfield, California, on “F” Street above the famed KC Steakhouse.  Carol is the proprietor and this year, they have lost not only Beverly Carrick Snow but also Ron Lopez, one of the top hairstylists in the city.  We promote them and their abilities and want you to call them at 661-324-9864.  Please visit us weekly if you live in Kern County and if you live outside, please fly in once a month from any part of the world and have Carol take care of your hair—you will not be disappointed.  We recommend nothing but the best here at the AICP-END so please visit them and tell them that WE sent you!  Thank you!                                                                      

Anyhow, let us close with this impassioned plea—please leave some comments and/or become a follower and why not spend some money and purchase an album by MOUNTAIN or West, Bruce, and Laing and/or buy a cookbook from Amazon.com—we want to make some money here so help us out by buying something!  Allied with them, we are pleased to market their merchandise! When we finish advertising albums by Mountain and West, Bruce and Laing, we will begin presenting albums by Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention!  See you next time around! Bye!  

Thank you!
