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

 

 

Bakersfield, CA, 12-29-2012 S:  Here we are, friends, counting down the hours to New Year’s Eve, now two days away from today.  The fact that the world has not exploded into a fireball is amazing, what with all of the prophecies and the nuts on the George Noory show, you know Coast to Coast after Dark, the old Art Bell show, the one he still appears on here and there.  Up until the day itself, December 21, 2012, they had numerous guests talking about all of the possible things that might happen to the planet when the Mayan calendar came to its end.  So far, nothing much has happened unless of course, you take into account the unhappiness going on around the globe due to terrorism, the Arab Spring, and Obamaism. 

  Here at home, we may not have experienced a polar shift but we did experience a shift in the politics of America on November 06.  Most people felt that President Romney was a foregone conclusion, that no president with as many problems as Barack Obama could be reelected.  Unemployment has been running high, in fact, higher than the statistics show, hours are being cut in the workplace due to the oncoming of Obamacare, and people are still losing their jobs at record numbers.  Do you know, friends that the Labor Department tells us that a workweek of approximately 30-35 hours now counts as full time?  Tell me, please, how Americans are going to get by working thirty-five hours a week when back in the day, virtually everyone who writes for the AICP-END used to work 60 or more hours per week reaping in overtime hours?   Overtime was the frosting on one’s cake, it was what allowed families to take vacations, to have three-day weekends, to do so many things not only for themselves and their families but for their churches, synagogues, and mosques, and for their fellow community members.  Now, I see people begging everywhere, I see them outside markets, I see them coming up to churches and when turned away, swearing at the secular workers, I see them lurking about fast food restaurants, I see them wandering down my street. 

Unfortunately, Mitt Romney lost the election and to me, that means we have crossed the line where more Americans would rather stay home and receive their check rather than go out into the workplace and work hard for eight hours or more for their money.  If we do not recapture the momentum we had in 2010 in 2014, you can kiss this nation goodbye, as we have known it and it will be replaced with a new socialist form of government, sort of like a nation built upon the model of California.  We know what happened last month, it was because of the low information voters, the illegals, and the chicanery that went on at the voting booth.  When various states reported 120-percent voter turnout, should that not have alarmed and alerted the authorities!  No, they were happy that it happened and since they did it, no one is going to check on anything, this is how nations are lost.

We have been talking about the life and times of Beverly Carrick and her family, the noted artist who left us for an afterlife on November 29, 2012.  We were talking about the difficulties that Brian Carrick, her son and an author here was undergoing and how in a stupid moment with a punk named David Huddleston, he broke into the showcase at his junior high school so David could steal the sports trophies contained within it.  Why they did such a stupid thing is beyond anyone’s guess, even Brian no longer remembers the reasons behind it but as he said, they did and when he could no longer stand it, he broke down and informed his parents of his perfidy. 

Instead of immediately attacking one another, Harry and Beverly took charge of the issue.  Beverly called the Bakersfield Police Department and within a short time, officers arrived at the family’s home.  There, they questioned the boy in the presence of his parents and because he fingered the other kid, the one who initiated the act, he was off the hook.  They then went and located David and took him into custody and the next day when Brian showed up at school, the buzz was that David had been arrested the night before for breaking into the showcase.  However, no one knew Brian’s part in it although he was called into the office so Mr. Thomas, the hardnosed school principal could discuss the situation with him and a representative of the police department.  He was then sent back to class after being admonished to “keep his nose clean.”

David did not come back to school that year but instead was convicted and sent to Camp Owens, the county youth ranch for juvenile delinquents.  Throughout the rest of the school year, Brian more or less quit hanging around with the tough kids but soon began to fret about what would happen to him when he went to high school.  If he went to Bakersfield High School, he was afraid that the minorities would beat him up as he still had issues with having a big mouth.  He also knew that he would be outnumbered by more than five-to-one by minorities and since things were not all that good at Washington Junior High due to getting molested, robbed, and picked on by older kids, that his maltreatment would continue.  After all, it was one of the reasons he had joined the “tough guys” because safety in numbers helped protect him from the trepidations of the Hispanic kids who had been held back four-to-five times due to being unable to graduate due to their grades. 

Going to the bathroom alone or walking home from school was a chancy thing at times as these older kids, sometimes junior or senior high school age, would pursue the younger kids and either take their money, beat them up, or both.   Therefore, he begged his parents to find another way and Harry and Beverly came up with Garces Memorial High School, about half-a-mile from home but required tuition.  Add to that that it was a Catholic high school and noted for the harshness of its curriculum and its discipline.  However, if it meant not getting beat up by the minority kids at BHS, then that was a good thing and so he agreed to whatever his parents required him to do.

Each year, things had gotten more and more difficult in the family home as the parents argued and fought constantly and their youngest son showed the affects of it.  Whenever his older brother came home—it was not often—he got his belated share and then some but not enough to compensate for what his younger brother was experiencing and had been over the past two-and-a-half years.   The ongoing effects were damaging his fragile psyche and he did not have many friends other than his friend Randy Kyles and for a few summers, his friend down south, Jon Gothold.  The summer of 1970 was the last time that Brian would see his beloved friend but as of yet, he did not know it.  Beverly took them to see the Woodstock movie at the Nile Theater and that was the highlight of their summer together, seeing naked women bathing in the muck of the concert. 

One other event occurred before high school commenced in the fall of 1970 and that was Brian and Randy’s chance meeting with David Huddleston and his friend on Baker Street.  Beverly used to give the two kids money to go to the Tejon Theater in East Bakersfield on the weekends and for a couple of bucks, they could live like kings.  While walking to the show, a couple of kids came up behind them and when one of them called his name, Brian turned around and was shocked to see who it was.  David immediately began jumping on him verbally for fingering him in the showcase burglary and even though Brian did his best to cover his tracks, he still ended being punched in the face several times.  Randy couldn’t jump in to help him because the other kid had him backed into the corner and it appeared that David and his friend were going to take Brian away and beat the crap out of him if not worse. 

The only thing that saved him from a beating was that he kept telling David that his mother would be coming down the street any minute and that he had better leave them alone which finally worked and drove the two punks away.  The terror of this incident stayed with him and made him even more afraid, especially when he finally made it home and his mother saw his face.  She was incensed and got onto the phone with the police while her son begged her not to do so.  Eventually, she relented, as she did not wish to make things worse for him but told him, “this is what happens to ‘tough guys,’ they get beat up by tougher kids.”

His father was more ho-hum about it, calling him a “pansy” for being punched in the face and then launched into an argument with Beverly over how she babied the boy.  Life was back to normal, Harry was drinking and going between silence and hostility while Beverly kept to herself in the studio.  Only when Brian spent the weekends working for his uncle at the grandparents’ hobby shop did he find peace.  Beverly still made her trips to Los Angeles but was becoming increasingly unhappier with her agents and so began the search for a new one, one who would appreciate her artistic abilities and would fight harder for her, maybe even more so than for his (or her) male clients.   She also spent time at the Bakersfield Art Association and was their most prominent member and so the summer of 1970 became the fall and Brian’s freshman year in high school.

We are going to conclude our story here for today but it is important to note that for a brief period in order to keep Brian out of jail and possibly set his life onto a different course, his parents came together and helped him.  Their combining of forces did not last for long but the important thing to note is that as Harry’s abilities and future began to wane, Beverly’s were becoming stronger and her future looked brighter all the time.   Harry was also faced with another problem and that was a possible transfer to somewhere else, either Louisiana or the Gulf Coast OR Alaska.  He was left with a conundrum to consider over the course of the next year and it began driving him crazy, how could he maintain his present lifestyle without being outed for being a drunk and an abuser and not be sent somewhere else because his abilities were waning?  It was a problem that would cause new problems over the months to come.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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!  

          As you see, this story is one that is multi-person and not just one about Beverly Carrick, the artist.  In the end, it is totally about her but for the time being, we must consider all facets in this human drama and since we have the rest of this year and the first week of January, we have time to tell it.  The important thing is that we always remember that what goes on within the confines of our homes has lasting consequences for the weak, the timid, and the fearful and that many times children not inclined that way become that way.  I have seen it so many times and the amount of child abuse ongoing in the United States in the past forty years is simply shocking and something that we as parents and grandparents must note and take into account.   Never take issues out on your children, always work them out in fair and equitable ways and don’t act like you just saw Brad Pitt’s movie, “Killing them softly,” with the myriad physical violence displayed on the screen.  God forbid!              

          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.   

          For the fashion-conscious living in Bakersfield, California, please visit 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!
