Moving school’s Mandarin program ignites fierce community debate

By Gary Walker On any given day, one can view the smiling faces of young children heading to Broadway Elementary School in Venice, as is the case in many schools throughout the Los Angeles Unified School District. Parents engage each other after dropping their young charges at the gate and sometimes walk a few blocks away for coffee and more conversation. But these days, unlike the children inside the elementary school, many of the parents un-

fortunately view each other with suspicion, making Broadway the flashpoint of a simmering debate that has pitted parents of a popular language immersion initiative against families whose children and grandchildren have been attending the neighborhood school for decades, and in some cases have graduated multiple generations. The Mandarin Chinese immersion language program at Broadway, implemented three years ago, has been by all rights a highly popular initiative and is

growing at a steady pace. Families have flocked to the school to enroll their children, which in LAUSD Board Member Steve Zimmer’s eyes, is a sign that his plan for an instructional language pipeline is coming to fruition. As a testament to the popularity of the Mandarin program, applicants staked out their positions in front of the school during the early morning hours of March 8 to apply for the 75 student slots for the 2013-14 academic year.

Supervisors put brakes on measure to combat stormwater pollution By Gary Walker A bid by Los Angeles County health officials and environmental organizations to establish a fund for new clean water initiatives has been postponed at least until next year. The county Board of Supervisors voted to halt the Clean Water, Clean Beaches initiative at its meeting March 12, dealing a temporary setback to organizations that are dedicated to keeping stormwater runoff from entering the ocean. The county measure would have charged parcel owners approximately $54 annually for storm water runoff cleanup. Money from the property tax assessment would have been used for local water-saving programs as well as creating regional watershed authorities. Property owners would have had the option to vote on the proposal in a mail-in special election. “While I have long supported efforts to ensure clean water and beaches, I have been against this measure from the beginning as it was not fair and transparent in content or process,” said Fourth District Supervisor Don Knabe, the author

of the motion to derail the measure. “We must start over. “Unfortunately, our stormwater problem is exacerbated by the expensive, and often unrealistic, demands placed on us by the Regional Water Quality Control Board, which increased the Total Maximum Daily Loads from two pollutants in the old permit to 33 pollutants, which would cost this region tens of billions of dollars to comply with in the next 20 years alone,” the supervisor added. The motion, which was cosponsored by First District Supervisor Gloria Molina, includes a target election date of June or November 2014. County officials have said for several months that the measure is a regional response to the continuing problem of pollutants entering local and regional watersheds. Last year, according to county authorities, taxpayers spent an estimated $100 million to clean up the urban pollution. Kerjon Lee, a spokesman for the county Department of Public Works, said his agency has been working with various (Continued on page 9)

The difference between blight and street furniture Re: “Mayoral race brings topic of street furniture back into public focus” (Argonaut, March 7). There is a disturbing disconnect between the transportation needs of the working poor and those who arbitrarily view “street furniture” as a blight to Venice Beach. For the most part, people of financial means do not use public transportation here in Los Angeles. It’s not like the mass transportation systems of other urban centers such as New York City, Philadelphia or Chicago, where a greater part of the population view subway or bus ridership as critical to getting from one place to another. In the case of Venice, the CBS/Decaux bus shelters that populate Lincoln Boulevard are critical to riders to avoid the scorching sun or

other inclement weather. Those who suggest street furniture as a “visual blight” are condescending to say the least, and offer no alternative for these shelters that would need to be absorbed financially by the cash-strapped, city of Los Angeles. These critics of private bus shelters fail to realize the commerce they create for advertisers as well as the revenue for a municipality seemingly insolvent and unresponsive to riders. For what is the harm of creating advertising opportunities for a local business to purchase? The problem is not the shelters. The problem is a dysfunctional city government unable to collect $23 million rather than having to fork out the same for a service the private sector is more than willing to subsidize. And what about bus riders here in Venice? Are we to only construct metal benches that are uncomfortable and do not shelter the rider

from the elements? Do any of these so-called critics ride the Big Blue Bus that accommodates those who do not have a car such as UCLA students, seniors and others who don’t earn enough to travel via private vehicles? Instead of promoting public transportation in a serious and sober fashion, these limousine liberals have a disjointed and obtuse view of the world when they haven’t spent a day in the shoes of those who actually ride buses all of the time. Furthermore, the red tape bureaucracy of having a bus shelter apply for a California Coastal Commission permit is not only ridiculous, but part and parcel a primary failure of a city that can’t get out of its own way. What about the riders I see Monday through Friday that congregate by the dozens on street corners during rush hour just seeking a reasonable transit experience? Where are these blight fighters attempting to make mass transit far more friendly for these riders? While our lame duck city councilman complains about a lack of revenue from one side of his mouth while critical of the number of these shelters on the other, he seems to have no problem with the amount of abandoned furniture that populates the Venice Beach Boardwalk all of the time. Where is the public policy rationale to such an idiotic point-of-view that street furniture at the beach is just fine? Let me get this straight: shelters that serve as places for transit riders to populate in dignity while waiting for a bus ride to school or work are considered a blight, while those who leave broken chairs, tents, garbage and other personal objects all along the Venice Boardwalk need to be tolerated and conveniently swept under the rug as part of life at the beach here in Venice? What am I missing here? Where is the representation residents deserve? Nick J. Antonicello Venice Beach

Campaign reflections

It is with tremendous gratitude that I move forward today – gratitude for the people now in our family’s life, for the knowledge I’ve acquired, and for the opportunity to participate in our democratic process. Over the past six months, I was permitted nearly unfettered access to our community and its people as we engaged in thousands of conversations on thousands of doorsteps, sidewalks, restaurants and street corners. Thank you to all of the people who invested their time and money in our campaign. Everything in life is more successful, effective, and far reaching when it comes from a community of people, and I am honored to say that we were blessed with the insights and efforts of some very amazing people. I wish to send my congratulations to Mike Bonin. His success is a direct result of tremendous focus, patience and insight while employing shrewd strategy and ample resources in his campaign to win this 11th District City Council position. I personally admire his efforts to win and believe that our community will blossom under his hand if his actions on council are even one-tenth what he showed during the campaign. I voiced many criticisms during our campaign and hold no regrets for those because they’re rooted in honest issues that have plagued our community too long. But now that the choice has been made and our complaints heard it’s time for our community to support our new council member’s efforts to help bring consensus back to our community. Winston Churchill once infamously said, “No one pretends that democracy is perfect or all-wise. Indeed, it has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except all those other forms that have been tried from (Letters continued on page 7)

Dear Ms. Annenberg, Why must your companion animal center be built on public open space? Dear Ms. Annenberg: We applaud your desire to create a state-of-the-art center for domestic animal care and adoption, but your insistence on building it on public open space is simply wrong for this ecosystem and wrong for our communities. The Ballona Wetlands Ecological Reserve is deserving of your generosity in its own right, without this highly inappropriate quid pro quo arrangement with the Department of Fish and Wildlife. This type of exploitive philanthropy sends the wrong message to our kids about the influence of money on matters of public interest. Please do the right thing: help the DFW focus on outdoor interpretive elements specific to the ecology of Ballona and find a location for your domestic animal center that does not further encroach on our already very limited public open space. Sincerely, The Ballona Wetlands Land Trust [Founded in 1994 to preserve this ecosystem from encroachment]

Bonin’s desire to serve is earnest and I urge anyone who supported the tenets of my campaign to come together and help him serve us. We have a potentially powerful council member representing us. Moving forward, let’s remember that his successes are now our successes.

The waiting game

The NIMBYs trying to close Santa Monica Airport need to be reminded every once in a while that there are only two methods likely to succeed. They are to repay the tens of millions of dollars the Federal Aviation Administration has spent on the facility now, or to wait until the strings attached to the funding run out in 2015. Congress is unlikely to make a gift of those funds to Santa Monica in these times so the Concerned Residents Against Airport Pollution should stop whining and wait until 2015. Of course there’s also the problem that the municipal body politic may not view closure of the airport the way CRAAP does, but that’s life. Ian B. MacLure El Segundo

Airport tower lag nothing new

Re: “Tower power could go out in April” (Argonaut, March 7). The article concerning possible Santa Monica Airport tower closure due to the sequester seems to imply that non-tower operation would be a difficult transition for Santa Monica Airport. It should be realized that the airport operates as a non-tower airport every day, after the tower closes for the night. The tower operates at the airport every day from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. The airport is open for

Zimmer says there are no easy choices at Broadway Elementary School (Continued from cover) Zimmer, who represents Venice schools and was recently reelected after he defeated Mar Vista parent Kate Anderson in the March 5 District 4 race, has supported similar initiatives at two Mar Vista schools, Grand View Boulevard Elementary School and Mark Twain Middle School. But unlike at those schools, tensions at Broadway have been high since last year when Zimmer was forced to confront a situation that involves not only parental choice, but also a clash of different cultures, gentrification, real estate, socioeconomics and according to some, misplaced entitlement. After considering a variety of options last year as the Mandarin program continued to grow, Zimmer made the decision to move the language immersion students to Marina Del Rey Middle School in Del Rey, a decision that enraged many of the parents whose children are studying Chinese. They began their pushback last year – lodging complaints about being forced to drive their students to a new campus – before multiple entities, including the Venice Neighborhood Council’s Education Committee and Zimmer’s office, as well as taking their grievances to online message boards and blogs. Odysseus Bostick, a Westchester parent whose daughter is in kindergarten in the Mandarin program, said a move to Marina Del Rey Middle School would create an additional challenge to the fledgling immersion program, which is going into its third year. “Every single year we’re recruiting teachers, and we have to find teachers for third grade because there are not a lot of bilingual teachers available who are fluent in traditional Chinese and are credentialed,” he explained. “They’re just hard to find.” Parents like Bostick who want their children to learn Mandarin Chinese are coming to neighborhoods like Venice but largely live outside the school’s enrollment boundaries. Broadway has fewer that 25 classrooms, which created a headache for the district. Soon, the choice came down to two options: keeping the Mandarin program at Broadway, with its growing numbers, or moving it to a place where it

could develop with more classrooms. When it was suggested that Zimmer change the enrollment boundary to move children who are not in the Chinese immersion program to Westminster Avenue Elementary School, tensions that had been lingering below the surface erupted. Some parents at Broadway’s English speaking program, largely composed of African-American and Latino families including some who have lived in Oakwood and the surrounding neighborhoods for decades, decided to leave the school. Others decided to fight back by protesting the Westminster transfer, which was quickly dropped once it became public and was dismissed by Zimmer. Emotions also boiled over last year when several Latino students, according to some of their parents, were removed from the Mandarin portion of the school for not meeting certain language guidelines, which no longer apply to the program. While Mandarin immersion parents sing the praises of Broadway Elementary Principal Susan Wang, many of the Latino parents accuse her of exacerbating the conflict by intentionally not informing them about the language immersion requirements, a charge that she denies. They also believe that Wang is encouraging the Mandarin immersion parents to protest the move to the middle school. “She’s the one who has been in the middle of all of this,” said Leonel Martinez, one of the neighborhood parent leaders. Martinez claims that Wang only wants a select group of children to participate in the immersion initiative. “(Wang) opened the program for everyone and later told many of us that our children couldn’t be a part of it,” he recalled. “I think that she just wanted to push the community people away and only let (Caucasian) and Mandarin children in.” Zimmer recognizes how tense the situation is at Broadway two years after “colocation spring,” in which hard feelings emerged at some District 4 campuses between some charter schools and neighborhood schools. “I have dealt with some very highly charged, complex issues in my district,” the school board member said. “I would submit that this one is the most highly charged.” Zimmer said given the dearth of space

THIS IS OUR SCHOOL, TOO – Parents whose children are in the community school at Broadway Elementary School feel like they are being pushed aside by some parents of the Mandarin immersion program.

at Broadway and the popularity of the Mandarin immersion initiative, not everyone is bound to be happy with whatever decision was made. “There is no way to make a decision that will be best for every parent,” he acknowledged. “The best thing that a school board member can do is to recommend the solution that is best for every child in every program.” Bostick said the Del Rey middle school’s infrastructure is currently lacking in some amenities that the Mandarin immersion parents would like for their children. “The facilities there need a lot of work,” said Bostick, citing the lack of sinks and water in some of the classrooms. “I’m not saying that it can’t be done, but there are so many things that need to be done to those facilities that the cost of moving our program there is huge at a time when there are fewer resources dedicated to growing it where it is and then maybe moving it later would probably be a better choice.” Martinez, who has lived in Venice for more than 20 years, said gentrification in Venice in recent years has exacerbated the situation at Broadway, with many longtime residents feeling that newcomers are seeking to change their neighborhood and

dismiss their way of life. “Imagine if you have a house and you invite someone over. Then that person invites someone else to come and live at your house,” he said. “Soon, they want to take over your house and one day they tell you ‘why don’t you go live somewhere else, a mile away?’ “That’s how we feel. It feels like (the Mandarin parents) want to push us out of our school.” Bostick said he understands why parents of the neighborhood school are also anxious, but he says none of the parents that he knows are trying to push anyone out of Broadway. “The mistaken concept of our school is an exclusive school and it’s really inclusive,” he said. The school board will vote on a resolution to pay for needed upgrades at the middle school on April 9, which will largely determine if the program will move. Bostick said he would take his daughter to Marina Del Rey, if that is where the program ultimately settles. “Absolutely,” he said. Wang did not return calls for comment. §

Supporters of clean water measure undaunted in quest for its passage Akers is undecided about how the funding from the initiative will be appropriated. “I know that the need is compelling and I want to support it. I just feel like we need more definition on how the money will be managed and by whom,” said Akers, who has spearheaded a number of sustainable initiatives in Mar Vista. “I have seen too many well intended programs with no real oversight that were neither well managed nor cost effective. I would feel a lot better if it were more clearly defined.” James also found things to be

encouraged about, despite the measure’s postponement. “The measure is still alive,” she noted. “It seemed like the vast majority of the speakers were supporters and the momentum is still going. “It wasn’t our ideal outcome, but we’re happy that it’s moving forward and we hope that the proper outreach will be done by the county.” Knabe reiterated his preference for a ballot initiative as opposed to a special election. “Should this board in the future decide to move forward with a new Clean Water, Clean

Beaches measure, it should be put before the voters in a general election ballot and not through a mail-in ballot, as was originally proposed,” he said. A ballot initiative would require approval by two-thirds of voters in order for a parcel tax measure to become law, while a special election would require a simple majority. The supervisors also asked for quarterly reports on the county’s work with stakeholders to develop a new measure that addresses the concerns voiced by the public over the last several months. §

FOURTH DISTRICT SUPERVISOR DON KNABE’S motion postpones a county measure that would have raised money to fund storm water runoff cleanup through a parcel tax.

(Continued from cover) school districts within the county since last year to advise them of the benefits of having a fund to offset the costs of cleaning up storm water pollution. “This has been a project that we have been looking at for about 10 years,” Lee explained. “The county has asked us to develop and recommend a sustainable revenue source that would address storm water pollution on a local as well as a regional basis.” Knabe was also the driving force in securing a 60-day delay in voting on the measure in January when it came before the board the first time. Notices were sent to the public late last year but opponents of the measure said they were confusing and many residents were puzzled by the notice’s language. “It was sent out during the holidays and to a lot of people it looked like junk mail,” argued Knabe, whose district includes Marina del Rey. “We’re finding that a lot of people threw them away.” Santa Monica-based Heal the Bay is one of the most prominent supporters of Clean Water, Clean Beaches. Kirsten James, the environmental organization’s water quality director, was hopeful that the supervisors would approve the measure. “There has been a lot of

progress made since (the item was postponed in January),” James told The Argonaut before the hearing. She cited project selection, criteria for funding and rebate incentive programs for property owners as important additions to the proposal. Los Angeles Waterkeeper Executive Director Elizabeth Crosson was also hopeful that Clean Water, Clean Beaches would pass. “I’m disappointed because there’s been unabated stormwater pollution in our ocean for years,” said Crosson, whose organization was known in the past as Santa Monica Baykeeper. “But I am encouraged by the supervisors’ decision to keep it and I’m looking forward to working with a coalition of stakeholders to get this measure on the ballot.” James disagreed with Knabe’s characterization of the water quality board’s requirements per the Clean Water Act. “I don’t view them as unrealistic,” she said. “It does take money to put these stormwater pollution solutions in place.” Marcia Hanscom, co-director of the Playa del Rey-based Ballona Institute, opposed the county proposal. “We want clean water and clean beaches, but there is no substantiation as to whether or how this tax will accomplish that goal,” she said.

G2 owners mark gallery’s fifth anniversary supporting environmental causes

Hummingbird photo by Dan Gottlieb

By Helga Gendell The award-winning and philanthropic G2 Gallery in Venice is celebrating its fifth anniversary of supporting art and championing the environment. Owners Dan and Susan Gottlieb, who opened the gallery in

September by world-renowned artist and activist Robert Glenn Ketchum’s work. The Gottliebs, who are both passionate about the environment and photographing nature, have traveled worldwide, never without their indispensable cameras.

Dan Gottlieb, born in Chicago, spent large amounts of time in the Field Museum of Natural History and the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry. He graduated from Boalt Hall Law School and later served for four years as a Los Angeles County deputy district attorney. In 1976 he co-founded a realty corporation, G & L Realty Corp., which owns medical office buildings around the country. Susan Gottlieb was born in Canada, and grew up in a remote area of Quebec. Her father was a Swedish immigrant and engineer working with a gold mining company. Her husband said she grew up witnessing the devastating effect that gold mining had on the environment. Growing up in the midst of nature also fostered her love of birds and wildlife, as well as her staunch support for environmental causes, she says. After coming to California, she worked for a number of years as a registered nurse, and met her husband in

“When we first opened, I envisioned a small gallery, perhaps showing the work of local artists and friends. Then I realized that Dan had a much larger vision in mind.” — Susan Gottlieb

March 2008, have donated all art proceeds from nature and wildlife photography to environmental causes. The name G2 stands for the Gottliebs. According to the gallery’s mission statement, “The G2 Gallery believes in the union between environmental causes and the power of photographic art to change the world. We share this passion with the world’s best photographers, who use the camera as a tool to inspire conservation. Supporting art and the environment by showcasing the world’s most celebrated nature and wildlife photographers and donating the proceeds to environmental charities.” When the gallery opened March 8, 2008 its first exhibit showcased the work of one of the world’s premiere nature photographers, Thomas D. Mangelsen. That exhibition was followed in

OWNERS DAN AND SUSAN GOTTLIEB opened the G2 Gallery in Venice five years ago as a way to support art and the environment by showcasing the work of nature and wildlife photographers.

1985 when she worked in his brother’s medical practice. “Susan grew up in a cabin in Canada, and her mother would have to walk down the hill to pump water and bring it back to the cabin. There was a conscious effort to conserve and appreciate the basics. I grew up in Chicago, and if I needed water, I turned on the faucet,” said Dan Gottlieb. Susan Gottlieb credits her husband with the idea of opening a gallery due to his love of photography. While she is also a photographer, she said that the gallery presented a wonderful opportunity to make a difference in environmental causes by nurturing artists whose work related directly to those causes. “When we first opened, I envisioned a small gallery, perhaps showing the work of local artists and friends. Then I realized that Dan had a much larger vision in mind,” she said. In the 1980s, Susan began restoring the couple’s garden at their home, removing exotic plants and non-native species, replacing them with native plants, to attract the birds, insects and wildlife that now make up the garden, which is designated by the National Wildlife Federation as an official wildlife habitat. Their home is on the garden tour circuit, and she is getting ready for an upcoming tour. Hummingbirds abound in the back yard, flitting back and forth between numerous feeders, and (Continued on next page)

Fifth anniversary supporting environmental causes (Continued from previous page)

the vegetation is varied and beautiful, she says. She marvels at how much the garden has taken over her life, and said in the beginning she had planned to do a little project by removing the ivy and other non-native species. Susan Gottlieb is assisted by her longtime gardener of 18 years and his son, who prepares the yard for upcoming tours and generally keep everything going. Asked what they foresee for the gallery now that they’ve reached the five-year anniversary, Dan and Susan Gottlieb both said, “Much more of the same for years to come.” They both credit Jolene Hanson, the director of the gallery, for its success. “She’s been with us from the beginning, and has done a wonderful job,” they said. Current exhibits at the gallery include SPILL, featuring photos by Daniel Beltrá of the 2010 BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The spill released 4.9 million barrels worth of crude oil into the ocean, devastating wildlife and the environment. The exhibit opened March 5 and will show through Sunday, April 21. Another show currently being exhibited is Nature LA: Cyanotopes by Christine Caldwell. She foregoes the use of a camera, using paper prepared with lightsensitive chemicals, takes specimens from Los Angeles County beaches and aquatic communities, then exposes them to sunlight and bathes them in water to create each unique piece. Caldwell’s exhibit opened March 5 and will show through Sunday, April 21. Photos of the Gottlieb Native Garden are available on the gallery’s website. The gallery offers photographic workshops, music events, and podcasts with artist interviews. Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday. The gallery collections and gift shop periodically close for private events and holidays. Events, artist information and upcoming closures are listed in the online calendar. The G2 Gallery is at 1503 Abbot Kinney Blvd., Venice. Information, (310) 452-2842, info@theG2gallery.com, or www. theG2gallery.com. §

Santa Monica Airport ArtWalk to showcase studios of over 60 artists Photo by Sabine Pearlman

LOCAL ARTISTS and performers will have their private studios and works on display at the Seventh Annual Santa Monica Airport ArtWalk. Above, artist Lulu Camp paints in her studio.

More than 60 local artists and performers will have their private studios and works on view during the Seventh Annual Santa Monica Airport ArtWalk from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday, March 16 at Santa Monica Airport.

Visitors will have the chance to explore open studios, watch artful demonstrations, take part in an art workshop, and enjoy live jazz vocals and food trucks at the event, held along Airport Avenue between Bundy Drive and 23rd Street.

Paintings, sculptures, ceramics, and mixed media will be on view, and many artists will be selling work from their studios as well. The Arena 1 Gallery is presenting its exhibit Decade of Dissent, Democracy in

Action, 1965-1975, featuring original protest posters that organizers say reveal the persuasive power of art to inspire ideals of democracy. The Santa Monica College Art Mentor Program will feature works from a select group of SMC Art Department students, and SMC Ceramic Arts will present throwing as well as Raku firing demonstrations throughout the day. The Ruskin Group Theatre will present highlights of its popular monthly offering L.A. Café Plays, as well as theater and art workshops for children. Other hands-on activities for all ages include a community mural designed by airport artist Laraine Mestman, a terrarium workshop using recycled bottles and jars, and a communal ceramic project with Santa Monica College Ceramic Arts. The ArtWalk Stamp Hunt invites attendees to explore the art walk and airport by finding and getting stamped at each of the five locations. Everyone who collects all five stamps will receive a prize at the information booth. In addition, The Leftover Cuties will be performing live music throughout the day. The Museum of Flying will also be open, featuring displays and interpretive exhibits on the history of flight and the development and growth of the aviation and aerospace industry in Southern California. Artist Mike Machet will be on hand discussing his new mural entitled, Fly Douglas. The event is free to the public, with free parking and bike valet. Parking is available at the school’s Bundy Campus; entrance from Bundy/Centinela. Information, (310) 458-8350, or www. smgov.net/airportartwalk.

The Fabulous Thunderbirds to headline Blues at the Crossroads 2 at Broad Stage By Helga Gendell The Broad Stage in Santa Monica will present the “battle of the blues” in Blues at the Crossroads 2: Muddy and the Wolf, a celebration of the friendly rivalry between blues legends Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf, at 7 and 9 p.m. Saturday, March 16. Renowned musicians and singers, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, led by “Goleta Slim” Kim Wilson, will pay tribute to the blues legends by playing their sounds. The show also features “Steady Rollin’” Bob Margolin, who played guitar in Waters’ band for several years, Grammy winner James “Superharp” Cotton, who played harmonica with both Waters and Howlin’ Wolf, guitarist/vocalist Jody Williams and guitarist/vocalist Tinsley Ellis. Wilson is in high demand as a contributor to the music of others, and his songs, including “Wrap It Up” and “Tuff Enuff” have been part of movie soundtracks, event organizers said. He received Grammy nominations for his R&B hit “Tuff Enuff.” Wilson also tours with Kim Wilson’s Blues

All-Stars. In an interview with The Argonaut, Wilson (the only original member of the group) discussed The Fabulous Thunderbirds’ new album On the Verge, their first release in 10 years, his friendship with Waters, and performing with some old friends and fellow blues performers. How did you become part of the Broad Stage Blues at the Crossroads event? They gave me a call and asked if I was interested in participating, and I was very happy to take part. I’ll get to see some old friends and fellow performers like Bob Margolin, James Cotton, Tinsley Ellis and Jody Williams.

of that album and the people that made it happen, Severn Records, and my fellow band members – Randy Bermudes, Mike Keller, Jason Moeller and Johnny Moeller. This is one of the blusiest albums we’ve got, and it’s mixed with so many other things that you get what you want and then some. It happened naturally, not subscribing to some formula, and the band really has something to say in modern times. We’ve been described as a blues rock group, and that couldn’t be further from the truth. I don’t know where they came up with that. We are a blues group, that’s it.

You were very good friends with Muddy Waters. What memories do you have of working with him? Muddy treated me like I was his son. How did the name for your album, Here I was a kid in my early 20s, and he On the Verge, come about? was such a mentor, like a second father to Believe it or not, this is the first time me. He was very generous when he spoke I’ve ever named an album. I thought we were on the verge of doing something pret- to the press about me. I miss him very much. I have very happy memories of ty cool, a good beginning. I’m very proud

those days and no one can share them. They were awesome times. I could get into trouble and party in those days, and Muddy would really scold me on occasion. There are very few people left like me who were influenced by the old guys. So few play the blues, they do a lot of different stuff. That’s why I’m so glad to be getting together with these guys at the Broad Stage. Do you have a message for your many fans? Do what you love, have a good time. Take a break and think about yourself. If you don’t like yourself, nobody will. Figure out what you like, or embrace what you do and do it to your best ability. The Broad Stage is at the Santa Monica College Performing Arts Center, 1310 11th St., Santa Monica. Information, (310) 4343200. For tickets, http://thebroadstage. com. §

Champagne Bakery Café

We have re-invented our much loved restaurant, along with our menu, to better serve our loyal & long time customers. We invite new patrons to experience & enjoy one of the very few remaining family owned gems, here in the heart of the Marina.

11709 National Blvd., Mar Vista. 310-231-9700.

I have written about food professionally for 25 years and don’t understand the allure of the most popular meals in America. I’m talking about fast food, American style: burgers about as flavorful as the Styrofoam they’re packaged in, plopped in a pasty bun, with chemically adulterated fries on the side. I find it revolting, and dislike being stuck in traffic downwind from junk food places that reek of cooking oil and artificial additives. But we are a time-obsessed culture and we need speed, you might protest. Sorry, no excuse, because in other cultures they have found ways to dine very well on fresh food that is available quickly. Asian stir-fries can be knocked together in mere moments, an English pub can put together a Ploughman’s Lunch as fast as they can slice the cheese, and I would crawl past a dozen McDonalds to get a good street taco. And in their own special category, there are the French. It’s a cuisine famous for long, leisurely dinners, but they can knock together a good breakfast or lunch tout de suite. The Champagne French Bakery Café chain exists to fill this niche locally, serving quiches, crepes, omelets, sandwiches, salads and soups that are freshly made but fast. On my first visit to the Mar Vista location on National Boulevard I was in a hurry but lost precious minutes being paralyzed by indecision – I wanted to dine sensibly, but it’s hard to order something healthy while you are standing by a bakery case full of pastries. My mind was made up when I noticed an item that is a joke in my household – the croque monsieur. My brother’s family ate a lot of this variation of a grilled ham and cheese sandwich when they went for a two-week vacation in Southern France, because it was one of the few things they knew how to order. Any time a language barrier was a problem in a café, they always had one thing they knew they liked, and it remains one of their favorite snacks to this day. To be a proper croque monsieur, it has to be made with pan de mie, a slightly sweet milkbased bread, made with thin-

We hope to serve you well & see you often! Open 7 days • Lunch & Dinner Weekly Rotating Dinner Specials The croque monsieur sandwich, similar to a grilled ham and cheese, at Champagne French Bakery Café in Mar Vista has hints of nutmeg and pepper and is served with a choice of tomato-basil soup. The bakery serves a variety of sweets, including a berry tart.

sliced ham and a dab of mustard, and be topped with Gruyere cheese and béchamel sauce and broiled. Champagne got everything right – this is grilled cheese for grownups, with hints of nutmeg and pepper adding savory elements to the mix. It was offered as a $9 combo with salad or a cup of tomato-basil or French onion soup. French onion would have meant more melted cheese along with a sandwich that had plenty of that commodity, but the tomato-basil was the perfect complement. I finished with a delightful little berry tart and a cup of iced tea and left the place with a spring in my step. The total was 16 bucks for everything – perhaps twice the cost of an American-style junk food meal, but at least four times better. I returned a few days later to try a different combination – the chicken salad croissant and French onion soup. Good croissants are hard to find in Los Angeles; one often runs across beautiful pastries that promise that crisp exterior and buttery flavor, but are soft and bready. Champagne’s were better than average but short of brilliant – they had the flavor, but were a

bit too soft. I wouldn’t eat one all by itself, but it was fine for a sandwich when stuffed with gently curried chicken salad, lettuce and tomato. The French onion soup that accompanied it had the proper melted cheese crust and was very good thanks to a beefy, “oniony” stock that would have been good all by itself. With a cup of strong Lavazza coffee, lunch was a mere $12. At both meals it took less than 10 minutes from ordering to the arrival of food at my table, and I could have been in and out in half an hour had I not wanted to linger over my beverage soaking up the relaxed atmosphere of a civilized café. The only thing that could have made it better was if Champagne served champagne, but alas, I shall have to make due with coffee. I will be back to sample my way through the menu. This is my go-to place for when my time is limited but my appetite for good food is not. Champagne Bakery Café is at 11709 National Blvd., corner of Barrington Avenue in Mar Vista.

Nautical News

Traditions abound in Marina on Opening Day Photos Pat Reynolds

Pacific Mariners Yacht Club member John Meyers, clad in a chicken suit, poses with Commodore Larry Koch after a crowd pleasing acapella song about chickens.

By Pat Reynolds Opening Day ceremonies were held March 9 and 10 and signified the beginning of a new yachting season in Marina del Rey. Cannon shots rang out, flags ran up flagpoles, speeches were given and dignitaries from surrounding yacht clubs and boating organizations descended on the area. Under perfectly clear skies, six local yacht clubs welcomed hundreds of men and women clad mostly in blue blazers and khakis to take part in this time-honored tradition. Each of the clubs host their own shindig that adheres to the rituals of the day, but also add various elements that speak to the personality of the club. For instance, this year at the Pacific Mariners Yacht Club, one of the members came out dressed as a giant chicken and sang a song about chickens. They were celebrating their 50th year as an organization and have a lighthearted tradition involving a rubber chicken. Live music, Bloody Marys in the morning, finger food, straw hats and ear-drum destroying explosions from cannons that really don’t look that big are some of the features of an Opening Day. When it is all said and done and the last cannon shot echoes away into silence, the yachting season is officially open. §

A well attended Opening Day at the Del Rey Yacht Club.

Respected local yachtsman Bill Stump from the California Yacht Club stands to be recognized at this year’s Opening Day Ceremonies.

One of the “Breezway Boys” from the Santa Monica Windjammers Yacht Club serves up a morning Bloody Mary at the 2013 Opening Day festivities.

Eddie Hollister rings “eight bells” for those who have passed away. This is one of the many traditions observed at the Opening Day ceremonies.

Patriotism is another theme throughout Opening Day. Young color guard troops appear to begin each yacht club’s event. These young volunteers from the U.S. Naval Sea Cadets honored their country at the California Yacht Club.

Q:

What are the California requirements for carbon monoxide detectors?

A: As of July 1, 2011, California landlords and homeowners, including sellers of residential property, must comply with the Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Prevention Act of 2010. This law addresses the problem of carbon monoxide poisoning, which is the leading cause of accidental deaths in the U.S. Carbon monoxide poisoning is an odorless gas produced whenever fuel is burned. It can enter the home from sources as seemingly innocent as a gas stove, furnace or wood stove, usually due to leakage, backdrafting, or poor venting. The new California law requires the installation of a carbon monoxide (CO) alarm or a CO alarm combined with a smoke detector that emits

an alarm and has been tested and certified in accordance with standards developed by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. (UL). Detectors must be installed in all dwelling units that contain a fossil fuel-burning heater, appliance or fireplace; or that have a attached garage ( a fossil fuel is coal, kerosene, oil, wood, fuel gases, and other petroleum or hydrocarbon products that emit carbon monoxide as a byproduct of combustion). The installation schedule started on July 1, 2011 for all singlefamily homes, and January 1, 2013 for all other dwelling units (such as multi-family residences). Landlords are charged with

installing and maintaining the detectors, and may enter the rental for the purposes of installing, repairing and testing. Tenants are responsible for notifying the landlord if the device becomes inoperable. Currently, the law requires sellers of residential real estate containing one to four living units to complete disclosure forms as part of the sales process. Sellers of singlefamily homes must give buyers written notice of compliance with laws concerning smoke detectors. Sellers of any real property containing a water heater must certify to any buyer that the heater complies with safety requirements. Currently, the law requires sellers of residential real estate containing one to four living

units to complete disclosure forms as part of the sales process. Sellers of single-family homes must give buyers written notice of compliance with laws concerning smoke detectors. Sellers of any real property containing a water heater must certify to any buyer that the heater complies with safety requirements. The new law amends these duties, by changing the disclosure forms so that the seller will certify that the property complies with the requirements for smoke detectors and water heaters. The new seller disclosure forms also now include a section for carbon monoxide devices, and say that the installation is not a precondition, or requirement, for sale or transfer. However, sellers should

not be surprised if buyers insist that such detectors be installed as a condition of closing. If you’re a home buyer, your inspector should tell you whether the house does, in fact, contain adequate CO detectors. If not, you can either ask for them as part of your negotiations, or simply plan to buy them yourself. The cost is usually between $20 and $90 per detector. The Consumer Product Safety Commission recommends installing a CO alarm in the hallway near every separate sleeping area of the home. This week’s question was answered by Debra Berman and Pat Kandel, RE/MAX Estate Properties, (310) 424-5512.

By Gary Walker For those who were anticipating a presentation by the Annenberg Foundation on its plans to build an interpretive nature center in the Ballona Wetlands before a local neighborhood council Thursday, March 14, they will have to wait until a later date. The nonprofit organization unveiled some of the plans for the proposed nature center at the Del Rey Neighborhood Council Planning and Land Use Committee meeting March 6 and was slated to show them to the full council a week later. But the foundation decided to postpone its presentation, said Del Rey Neighborhood Council President Eric DeSobe. “Annenberg asked to present again at our April meeting rather than (the March meeting) so they could have time to incorporate all the community feedback into their presentation,” the neighborhood council president explained. The interpretive center, which has been the subject of heated controversy, is slated to be a 46,000-square foot building that will include an auditorium, classrooms, a public lobby, exhibits on wildlife and domestic animals, facilities for an animal adoption and care program and veterinary facilities for animals. One wetlands advocate was taken aback with Annenberg’s plans for the nature center when they were displayed at the planning committee meeting, which drew a spirited audience of over 30 people. “We were shocked to hear (Annenberg Executive Director) Leonard Aube present that their plan will now take over the entire Area C land,” said Marcia Hanscom, co-director of the Ballona Institute. Area C of the Ballona Wetlands runs along Culver Boulevard near the Culver-Marina Little League baseball fields. In a memorandum of understanding, the foundation indicates the center will occupy 15 to 20 acres. The proposal has been factored into the notice of preparation, a document that triggers the environmental process for a restoration of the wetlands. The state Department of Fish and Wildlife will be in charge of the restoration of the 600-acre ecological reserve, as well as the United States Army Corp of Engineers. The initial notice was released last year but was recirculated after the Annenberg Foundation made its plans for the nature center public last month. Hanscom’s organization and others have been pushing unsuccessfully for a 90-day extension for the public to review the documents pertaining to the wetlands refurbishing as well as the foundation’s project. They also want the federal government to reopen the scoping period. The Argonaut first reported Fish and Wildlife’s decision late last month to grant an additional 15 days for comment.

WHERE DID THEY SAY THEY’RE GOING TO PUT IT? – A Citizen Heron surveys the Culver-Marina Little League field in Area C of the Ballona Wetlands. The Annenberg Foundation is proposing a 46,000-square foot nature center near the field.

“We did this in response to many public requests,” explained Fish and Wildlife spokeswoman Jordan Traverso. Hanscom said the foundation could have sought another place for the interpretive center. “This land grab by a very wealthy private foundation of public land that was meant for wildlife protection and restoration is so puzzling,” she asserted. “It’s not as if they could not afford to buy some land in the area and build their domestic animal companion center there.” DeSobe thinks the turnout at the planning meeting is indicative of his constituents’ dedication to preserving the environment. “I’m so impressed with the Del Rey community for its commitment to our natural treasures in Del Rey,” he said. “We’ve received so many comments and thoughts on this issue that show how much we care for this community and its future.” The comment period ends Saturday, March 16. Those who would like to weigh in on the restoration plan may contact the Ballona Wetlands Restoration Project C/O Donna McCormick 1 Ada, Suite 100 Irvine, CA 92816, or by email to: Donna.McCormick@icfi.com.

Wider walkway to be installed on Santa Monica Pier bridge

The accessway to Santa Monica’s most famous landmark is about to become more accommodating for pedestrians. Work began March 12 to remove existing sidewalks on the Santa Monica Pier bridge and provide a wider, single pedestrian walkway on the north side of the bridge. In addition, a concrete barrier will be installed between the vehicle lanes and pedestrian walkway. The work is anticipated to be completed by Fri-

day, March 22. The enhanced width sidewalk on the north side of the bridge is intended to better accommodate the volume of pedestrians traveling to and from the pier, city officials said. Enhanced signage and roadway markings will be also be added. Information on the project, (310) 628-8039 or www.smgov.net/kbug.


Westchester

Open house to be held on new Orville Wright Middle School magnet Orville Wright Middle School in Westchester has announced plans to convert into a full magnet school and will host an open house on the transition from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 14. Beginning in August, Orville Wright will operate as the STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) magnet, and teachers will integrate the concepts of engineering and design throughout the curriculum. The conversion to magnet comes after Westchester High School opened as Westchester Enriched Sciences Magnets in the beginning of the 2011-12 school year. In a letter to parents, Orville Wright Principal Stephen Rochelle said students at each grade level will engage in project-based learning that requires

problem solving and collaboration. Students will learn how to use technology to design useful applications and machines, and the magnet will offer a wider range of electives including Spanish, beginning instruments and art, Rochelle said. The STEAM magnet is expected to serve up to 820 students and all current students will be enrolled in the new magnet, the principal said. During the open house, a presentation will be given for parents and community members, who will have the chance to learn more about the new program. Orville Wright is at 6550 W. 80th St., Westchester.

LAX

First 3 aircraft gates open at new Bradley Terminal Los Angeles city and airport officials have unveiled the first three aircraft gates to be completed at the new Tom Bradley International Terminal at Los Angeles International Airport. Located in the terminal’s north concourse, the gates are among 18 that will be built as part of the $1.5-billion project. Two of the three completed gates are among nine that can accommodate larger aircraft, such as the Boeing 747-8 Intercontinental and Airbus A-380. The Bradley Terminal construction, which is being completed in phases, is the largest public works project in the city’s history and part of the overall modernization of LAX. “We’re investing in LAX because it isn’t just a travel hub, it’s the gateway to the Pacific Rim and a central driver of our regional economy,” Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said. “With these modernizations at the new Tom Bradley International Terminal, LAX will showcase our city’s innovative spirit and ensure we remain competitive in the global market for years to come.” All 18 gates will use state-of-the-art, laserbased, visual guidance docking systems, and computerized passenger boarding bridges automate the operations between the terminal and aircraft doors, airport officials said. Los Angeles World Airports is installing three passenger boarding bridges at all of the new A-380-compatible gates. At the boarding gates, electrical outlets and USB ports for charging personal electronic equipment, such as cell phones, tablets, and laptops, are

installed at each area of seats. “The overall goal of the LAX modernization program is to dramatically improve the passenger experience with a building designed to capture the spirit of Los Angeles, while establishing new levels of passenger convenience and comfort,” said Gina Marie Lindsey, executive director of Los Angeles World Airports. “We are creating an airport that is safer and more secure, more energy-efficient, and customer-friendly with the types of services and amenities passengers demand today.” More than 30 airlines will operate at the Bradley Terminal, using more than 20 different types of aircraft. The first of the new gates became operational last September, while the two others became operational late last month. Phase 1 of the project, expected to open this summer, includes a “Great Hall” with 150,000 square feet of dining and shopping, airline lounges, and other passenger amenities including a play area for children. It also includes nine new boarding gates on the west side of the terminal. Phase 2, which includes the gates on the east side of the terminal and expanded areas for federal passenger security screening and customs and immigration processing, is scheduled to be completed next year.

The American Red Cross Santa Monica chapter’s annual fundraiser, the Red Tie Affair, will take place at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel April 6, with a “Salute to the Armed Forces.” Among the highlights will be an attendance by the cast of the CBS drama “NCIS” and a “Red Carpet for Heroes.” The event will be hosted by Fox 11 News anchor/reporter Christine Devine. Service men and women from all branches of military service, together with NCIS cast and executive producers, will be honored as part of the Red Tie Affair. The Crystal Cross Award for outstanding support of the American Red Cross will be presented to the cast and executive producers of the CBS one-hour drama NCIS. NCIS, now in its 10th season, centers on the members of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service.

The Rick Crocker Spirit of Volunteerism Award, which is named for the Santa Monica police officer, Red Cross volunteer and Iraq War veteran who was killed in 2005, will be presented to Dr. Richard Corlin of St. John’s Health Center. The Red Tie Affair is the largest fundraising event of the year for the American Red Cross in Santa Monica. The celebration this year is intended to spotlight the historical relationship between the Red Cross and the men and women of the military and the sacrifices they and their families have made, organizers said. Wearing an element of red is encouraged to signify support of the American Red Cross mission. The evening’s festivities will include cocktails, gourmet dining from celebrity chef Nick Stellino, silent and live auctions and special entertainment.
