GARCETTI RECEIVES WARM WESTSIDE WELCOME Mar Vista

Mayor-elect gets ‘back to basics’ with Westside constituents By Gary Walker The Eric Garcetti Listening Tour came to Mar Vista June 15, where hundreds of Westside residents greeted him and peppered him with questions on how they would like to see their city government function over the next four years. The mayor-elect, who beat City Controller Wendy Greuel in a May 22 runoff to become Los Angeles’ next mayor, is visiting different communities in “Back to Basics” community forums to get feedback from his soon-to-be constituents and answer questions before he takes office July 1. In an interview with The Argonaut at the Windward School in Mar Vista, where the town hall was held, Garcetti answered a number of questions about local concerns, including three controversial matters that have affected or have the potential to affect Westchester, Playa del Rey, Mar Vista and Venice. Garcetti was one of four council members, along with Councilman

Bill Rosendahl, who voted “no” on a Los Angeles International Airport Specific Plan Amendment Study that would allow Los Angeles World Airports to move the LAX northernmost runway 260 feet north and has enraged Westchester and Playa del Rey homeowners. The council passed the LAX motion 10-4. “I still feel quite strongly about my position on the airport,” the mayor-elect said. “I don’t think there will only be a single bite at the apple.” A Westchester organization has filed a lawsuit against the city and LAWA, alleging that the environmental impact report was deficient. “Lawsuits require mediation and I’ll be involved in trying to resolve these issues, stand up for the community and modernize this airport,” Garcetti said. The mayor appoints the members of the Board of Airport Commissioners, and while Garcetti said he will not impose a litmus test on his appointees, views on the

Mayor-elect Eric Garcetti made Mar Vista his second stop on his “Back to Basics” tour June 15.

Third time not the charm for city as coastal board again denies overnight parking limits By Vince Echavaria For the third time, the California Coastal Commission has rejected a push by the city of Los Angeles to implement overnight parking restrictions on Venice streets. With a majority of new members since the last time the commission took up the controversial issue, the board voted unanimously June 13 to deny the city’s request for overnight parking district permits. The commission, which oversees issues impacting the state’s coastline, previously shot down such permit requests in 2009 and 2010. At stake was a tentative settlement agreement between the commission, city and Venice Stakeholders

Association, which sued the coastal board over its prior denial of OPDs. As with its two prior votes, the commission denied its staff recommendation for approval of the permits that would allow for parking restrictions on streets west of Lincoln Boulevard and near Marina del Rey. If approved, the OPDs would have been established between 2 and 5 a.m. on a block by block basis where at least two-thirds of residents voted to implement them. Proponents argued that the parking limits are needed to preserve parking for residents on streets where spaces are occupied by those living in vehicles, visitors travelling out of Los Angeles International (Continued on page 9)

Broadway’s traditional students would be better served at Westminster

The nearly empty school was almost closed by the district due to low enrollment. Then, in response to the demands of a rapidly changing neighborhood, Broadway started a Re: “Mandarin program will soon seek new home, but not at Del Rey middle Mandarin immersion program that will max out the school’s capacity in three school,” (Argonaut, June 13) years. Los Angeles Unified School District The vast majority of students at Board Member Steve Zimmer and Broadway Elementary in Venice are Superintendent Dr. John Deasy had a enrolled in the Mandarin immersion chance to demonstrate beyond rhetoric that the district is poised to compete with program, and for the first time in over a decade, the school is operating at charters and private schools, by allowing full capacity. LAUSD and specifically, the vastly popular Mandarin program, Zimmer, has been trying to force the which serves the needs of new and old families of Venice, to remain at Broadway popular program out because its growth threatens the struggling traditional school Elementary.

where children have been forced to “share” grades for the past three years, unable to meet federal funding targets for enrollment. If the Mandarin immersion program were able to remain at the Broadway location, the traditional students would by no means be left behind for the success of the new program. There is another traditional school, Westminster Elementary, just blocks away which is ready and able to incorporate Broadway’s traditional students. The truth is, these students would be far better served at the comprehensive school down the street rather than a specialized school that only obligingly maintains a struggling traditional school that has outlived its relevance and fiscal sustainability in a gentrified neighborhood. It is painfully obvious that the district is not moving towards reform and is not flexible enough to meet the changing demands of a rapidly changing community. Instead, LAUSD remains stuck in the old model and wants taxpayers to foot the bill. The projected cost to colocate the Mandarin immersion program on the Marina Del Rey Middle School campus was $5.2 million. The cost to redistrict the traditional 80 non-permitted students who can legally claim Broadway as their “neighborhood” school a mere five blocks away, $0. Erika Kirsten Beck Marina del Rey

Marina del Rey

Supervisors approve plan to keep more funds locally for programming By Gary Walker Marina del Rey will soon have additional funding to allocate for recreational programming and critical infrastructure enhancements such as landscaping, signage and park equipment. The county Board of Supervisors voted in favor of a motion by Supervisor Don Knabe June 18 that will double the annual contribution to the Marina Accumulative Capital Outlay Fund from $2 million to $4 million as well as determine the annual increase in hotel transient occupancy taxes from fiscal year 2011-12 and allocate that increase on an annual basis to the county Department of Beaches and Harbors. “Marina del Rey is one of Los Angeles County’s most precious regional assets and we need to ensure it has continuous funding for projects that improve the quality of life for residents and visitors,” Knabe, who represents Marina del Rey, said after the vote. “Right now, most of the revenue generated by Marina del Rey goes back into the county’s general fund with very little set aside for improvements to the Marina. That’s simply not fair. “My motion called for ongoing funding which will allow for upgrades and repairs to landscaping, bikeways, walking paths, play equipment, community meeting space and other public area improvements because no funding has been available for these items after meeting the most basic of the Marina’s

IMPROVEMENTS INCLUDING new walking paths and landscaping in Marina del Rey will be funded through a reallocation motion passed by the Board of Supervisors June 18. A MOTION FROM SUPERVISOR DON KNABE will keep more funds derived from local real estate transactions in Marina del Rey.

infrastructure needs,” the supervisor continued. “I appreciate the board’s support in making good stewardship of the Marina a regional priority.” The county has also been engaged in extensive infrastructure projects that have cost several million dollars in the Marina in recent months. The Marina del Rey Seawall Refurbishment Program and the replacement of the Burton Chace Park docks are two of the larger initiatives

that county officials have initiated, costing $7.5 million and $7.4 million, respectively. “We have made significant strides in developing a vision for the Marina del Rey of the future. The private sector has committed to investments of nearly threequarters of a billion dollars for the next generation – it is now time for the county to put its money where its mouth is and make our crown jewel a priority,” said Knabe. Real estate transaction fees have been used to pay for many of the abovementioned necessities. But Knabe feels that because the community’s lessees, or leaseholders, have made investments in their parcel, the county should do its part as well by increasing the contribution to the capital outlay fund. The allocation from Marina hotels’ and motels’ transient occupancy taxes, known as the hotel bed tax, will go toward Marina-based events and programs that Beaches and Harbors has been providing for decades as well as toward new summer activities. The transient occupancy tax is charged in California when occupying a room or rooms or other living space in a hotel, inn, tourist home or house, motel or other lodging for a period of 30 days or more. Camping sites and recreational vehicle parks can also be subjected to the levy. Beaches and Harbors spokeswoman Carol Baker said the new revenue won’t be available for this year from many of the hotels because some have been closed for renovations. But the new revenue stream could help bolster summer programs and many of the coastal enclave’s existing activities and events, such as the new Marina del Rey Farmers Market, the Thursday night “Beach Eats” food trucks event and the WaterBus. “We would look to expand or extend things like the WaterBus season,” said Baker. “It is very popular and we definitely think there is a demand for it beyond the summer.” Other activities that could be the beneficiaries of the future largess are the popular Marina Summer Concert Series and “Discover Marina del Rey Day,” according to county documents. The motion also raised the participation fees from real estate transactions, including transfers, sales or

refinancing of leasehold interests. At the same meeting, the supervisors approved a leasehold change from Esprit One LLC to Gateway KW-Esprit I LCC, which will net the county $10.8 million – an example of a participation fee. The overlay fund will receive $4.3 million from the Esprit transaction. The county’s buyout of the Marina’s four Archstone parcels brought $2.2 million to its coffers, in addition to $13.4 million that is being held in an escrow account pending the resolution of the amount due to Marina del Rey’s lease participation provision. The future participation fees that will be owed to the county refinancing, sale or assignment from leasehold interests are as follows: Participation fees up to $1 million: 100 percent, participation fees from $1 million to $5 million: 50 percent, from $5 million to $10 million: 25 percent and above $10 million, 10 percent, according to county staff reports. Baker said there is one area where she would like to see significant enhancements, given the region’s history and proximity to the beach. “One thing that we would really like to focus on is our recreational boating activities,” she said. “This is a real priority for us.” Beaches and Harbors will have a summer program this year that caters to inland youth who have little access to the ocean. The board has long viewed Marina del Rey as one of the county’s most valuable assets and has begun a variety of projects designed to polish what Knabe calls “the crown jewel” of the county. Traffic improvements on Admiralty Way, the community’s primary artery, are nearly completed and soon a tree planting initiative to replace dozens of ficus trees with native plants and trees will begin later this summer. Knabe said it has been difficult to work out the details that went into his motion, but it has been worth the wait. “I have been trying to do this for a long time,” the supervisor said. “It’s long overdue and I think it will vastly improve the look and feel of Marina del Rey for years to come.”  Gary@ArgonautNews.com


Farewell note found on Santa Monica mass shooting suspect Santa Monica police say that the gunman who killed five people during a shooting rampage before police shot and killed him left a “farewell” letter expressing remorse for taking the lives of his father and brother. In his three-page handwritten note John Zawahri additionally expressed hope that his mother would be looked after financially and said good-bye to friends, Santa Monica Police Chief Jacqueline Seabrooks said. No motive was given for the killing rampage in the letter, which was found on Zawahri’s body, Seabrooks said. Police say the June 7 violence began when Zawahri fatally shot his father Samir Zawahri and brother Christopher Zawahri at the father’s home, which was set afire, and wearing ballistic attire, he shot a woman in her car before carjacking another woman on the street outside the home. As he was driven down Santa Monica streets, police say Zawahri shot at vehicles, including a Big Blue Bus and an SUV driven by

Carlos Franco. Franco and his 26-year-old daughter, Marcela, were killed. Zawahri then went onto the Santa Monica College campus where he fatally shot Margarita Gomez and shot at others inside the library, where Santa Monica and SMC officers fatally shot him, police said. Seabrooks said “our hearts continue to grieve for those who were killed or injured as a result of the actions of the lone suspect.” The police chief noted that

Zawahri had a troubled life and experienced mental health challenges that investigators believe likely played a role in his decision to go on the rampage through the city. During their investigation police discovered that Zawahri possessed an array of realisticlooking replica firearms and several “zip” guns capable of firing live ammunition. Also found was a .223 caliber assault rifle used in the attack and a .44 caliber “black powder” revolver that had been converted

to fire .45 caliber rounds, police said. Seabrooks said Zawahri attempted to attain a firearm in 2011 but was denied by the state Department of Justice. “He had an affinity for weapons,” Sgt. Richard Lewis told reporters. Specifically in his letter, Zawahri expressed hope that his mother would receive financial recompense from his father’s estate, and he dedicated most of the message to talk about friends, Lewis said. “It’s in essence a farewell

note,” he said. Seabrooks commended the actions of the three officers who confronted Zawahri in the campus library and brought the violence to an end. “That these officers were able to take definitive action before more lives were lost is a testament to their bravery and attentiveness to the training derived from lessons learned from mass shootings that have occurred across the country and become all too familiar,” the chief said.

Massive residential project has Mar Vista council, Rosendahl worried Photo by Roy Persinko

THE CONTROVERSIAL CASDENWESTLA PROJECT will be heard by the L.A. City Council Tuesday, June 25.

By Gary Walker The Westside, long a desirable target area of many of the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top developers, is no stranger to controversial projects. But a large-scale proposed development that would tower over the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s structures has Mar Vista residents as well as other Westside communities up in arms and could be the most attentiongrabbing project since the planned community of Playa Vista. CasdenWestLA, a mixed-use development with 638 residential units, a Target store and 160,000 square feet of leasable commercial space, is slated to be heard by the Los Angeles City Council Tuesday, June 25, and opponents of the

project are gearing up to launch one last strike before the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s governing body considers the project. Located at the corner of Pico and Sepulveda boulevards, the immense project is slated to be between 10 and 17 stories, nearly four times higher than a vast majority of the buildings in the area. The developer is Casden Properties LLC, a Beverly Hills-based company. Its website states that it is â&#x20AC;&#x153;widely regarded as one of the premier developers of multifamily residential properties in the United States.â&#x20AC;?

THE MAR VISTA COMMUNITY COUNCIL has grave concerns about the size and density of the Casden project.

which is on the southern edge of the project area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The project as submitted is simply oversized for the neighborhood, too tall, too dense and too many car trips per day,â&#x20AC;? said Mar Vista Community Council Chair Sharon Commins. The project is in an area that was long zoned for light industrial use but was rezoned by the city Planning Department, one of several maneuvers that Mar Vista Community Council board member Ken Alpern sees as disconcerting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;City Planning sneaked this through and the Planning Commission rammed it through a process that is supposed to be legal and transparent,â&#x20AC;? Alpern asserted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(City Attorney Carmen Trutanich) has recommended sending this back to Planning for proper environmental review, but (Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa) wants this approved despite all the Westside opposition, which includes neighborhood councils and homeowner associations that extend from Brentwood to Del Rey, and from West L.A. to Beverlywood.â&#x20AC;? In a May 14 letter to the councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Planning and Land Use Committee, Trutanich wrote, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am writing to express the steadfast position of the city attorneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office that the Casden project be returned to the city Planning Department for the appropriate environmental review.â&#x20AC;? Despite the Planning Commissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s approval of the project on Feb. 28, Trutanichâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office expressed concerns about changes to the project that the city attorney contends were â&#x20AC;&#x153;substantialâ&#x20AC;? and may not have been considered or addressed as part of the projectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s environmental analysis. Planning Commission President William Roschen said that CasdenWestLA â&#x20AC;&#x153;is going to turn out to be an exemplary (transit oriented development) project.â&#x20AC;? The size of CasdenWestLA is also a major concern for Alpern. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about a series of 10-17 story towers dropped into a region that is, at most two or three stories tall,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about 150 residential units per acre that is more dense than Playa Vista, or just about anywhere else in Los Angeles, in a land parcel dedicated to industrial and not residential use.â&#x20AC;? The project is be located near an Expo Line light rail stop, and while

city planners consider it to be a transitoriented development, Alpern and others with planning experience and a background in light rail do not. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Big-box retail doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fit as a transit-oriented use and the project is just too big for this location thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not in an established regional center like Westwood, Century City or Hollywood,â&#x20AC;? said Darrell Clarke, who like Alpern is a supporter of light rail and a former Santa Monica planning commissioner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d also contrast it with the thorough detail of the city of Santa Monicaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan for the Bergamot Station area, which gets into a lot of detail about making that district pedestrian-friendly.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Transit planning generally encompasses the area within a half mile radius of rail stations, putting the Mar Vista Community Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s low density northerly borders in jeopardy of radical up-zoning,â&#x20AC;? added Commins. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The environmental impact report lists the impacted street intersections which cannot be mitigated. There is real concern Mar Vista residents will not be able to even access the station to use it.â&#x20AC;? Councilman Bill Rosendahl and Councilman-elect Mike Bonin are both in opposition to the project, which lies just outside their district. Alpern, the co-chair of District 11â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Transportation Advisory Committee, said Casden WestLA has the potential to have what he thinks can be a chilling effect on the future of Westside light rail development. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If this is what Los Angeles is going to enact regarding mass transit and transit oriented development, I think this will turn off the Westside to mass transit,â&#x20AC;? he predicted. If CasdenWestLA is approved, any site, including a recently funded Westchester stop at Hindry Avenue on the Crenshaw/LAX Light Rail Corridor, will be fair game for this type of massive development, said Alpern. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to wonder whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to go up next to the Hindry station?â&#x20AC;? he asked. Casden Vice President of Community Development Howard Katz could not be reached for comment. ď&#x201A;§ Gary@ArgonautNews.com

right to do this,” resident Stewart Oscars told the commission. In the end, some commissioners said they were reluctant to approve the permits because the city had not conducted a parking study to determine the demand for early morning restrictions and that the city could have addressed much of its problems by approving a new Local Coastal Plan. “There is not enough analysis here; I believe the burden of proof is on the city to show that this is necessary,” Commissioner Esther Sanchez said. Commissioner Dayna Bochco believed the city put itself in its position because it does not have a certified LCP. Commission Chair Mary Shallenberger agreed, saying, “So many of the issues we heard before us today should have been grappled with in the process of doing an LCP, but they weren’t. I do hope the city decides that it would be worth it for them to do an LCP.” Ryavec said the stakeholders association is weighing its options on whether to proceed with the legal challenge in court, but he will no longer seek a settlement agreement with the commission. Vince@ArgonautNews.com

present the full array of legitimate arguments why OPDs are a bad idea in Venice, and I think we succeeded. The commissioners understood how ill-prepared the city is to go forward with this idea, and most importantly, they understood that OPDs are a solution in search of a problem.” As part of its application, the city proposed various measures to mitigate the permit parking program’s impacts on public parking in the early morning. City staff identified 357 spaces in six city parking lots that would be available before 4 a.m., as well as 351 street spaces within three blocks of the beach that would be exempt from the restrictions. In addition, the city proposed to establish a new bicycle share program and new bicycle lanes on several streets. Noting the commission’s concerns about coastal access impacts, Coastal Commission senior deputy director Jack Ainsworth said staff believed that the mitigation measures were “more than adequate” to ensure access is protected in the early morning hours. But opponents, some wearing “NOPD” stickers, reiterated their objections to enforcing overnight parking limits in the coastal community.

Catalyst and Taw Saeng:

A story of growth, change and unadulterated altruism supervisor Heather Askew, who had travelled overseas on several mission trips before. Howbeit, this particular trip came with unforeseen repercussions. “When I came to Thailand, I fell in love with the kids and could not get them out of my head when I went back to the U.S.,” Askew says. She recalled that when she brought up the subject of becoming a missionary to random acquaintances, people wrote checks right then and there for fundraising. “That’s when I knew it was God’s plan for me to go, because I wasn’t even trying, yet money started pouring in,” she said. Now, Askew serves as a full-time missionary on the Taw Saeng staff, where she gets to see the kids grow and learn new things and is able to “affect their lives and futures in a real way.” This includes adopting 17-yearold Sophie, an orphan whose parents recently died. Askew will continue working at Taw Saeng for the next four years while Sophie finishes high school and starts college, but beyond that she can’t say for sure. Yet she expressed doubt that she will ever choose to move back to the U.S. “I would constantly be comparing how much people spend on stupid stuff to how much of a difference that money would make in the slum communities here and what a difference it would make in our ministry budget,” Askew said. In a simple context, Askew explains that if every one of her Facebook friends donated $3 a month to Taw Saeng, an amount less than an average daily cup of Starbucks coffee, the organization would not only have its operating expenses and salaries for Thai staff covered, but also be able to expand its programming to help more children. Therefore Lee views “taking trips like this as a way we bring true stories home. The people that go on these trips are conduits for the stories, make others aware about how significantly $3 can impact the life of an individual, and then inspire them to do something about that awareness.” Askew may have kept her story in Thailand, but she shares it overseas through Taw Saeng’s website, fundraising efforts and blogging. Westchester resident Keith Uehlein, on the other hand, constantly tells friends and family that he wishes “everyone I knew could experience what I did and saw in Thailand.”

PAGE 10 THE ARGONAUT June 20, 2013

Uehlein went on Catalyst’s second trip to Taw Saeng in April, fueled by Lee’s “deep desire to return to Thailand to support Heather, see the kids that I met two years ago, continue to involve our church in international missions and share the opportunity with others.” Uehlein, described by Lee as “kind of gnarly looking and covered in tattoos” but “essentially a big kid with a huge heart,” initially went on the trip expecting to have limited time with the children because he was on the building team; he never expected to develop an adoration for Kaohom. It was yet another dense, humid afternoon, with temperatures nearing 100 degrees, when Uehlein split from the team working on a flooded house to install hot water systems at Taw Saeng. “The relationship evolved, I would say for me, the first time I saw her smile,” recalls Uehlein, who is not a father but loves kids. “Bringing a smile to a child’s face is the greatest gift in my eyes, and this little angel stole my heart and never gave it back.” According to Uehlein, Kaohom is one of the luckier kids in Thailand with an involved and caring mother who works at the Taw Saeng school. “I didn’t bound with her out of pity for her circumstance, we bounded out of pure love,” he said. Merely two days after returning to the U.S., Uehlein had a tattoo of her full Thai name, meaning “My Little Princess Jaripan Punyawudh,” permanently inked down his right forearm. He plans on returning to Thailand every year to visit Kaohom, but for now the two communicate through Facebook each day. Like Askew, Uehlein has also thought of adoption. “If her mother thought she would have a better life in America, I would spend my last dime for the adoption of her,” he says. Yet the distant separation between him and his “Little Princess” in no way blurs his overarching trip reflections: “It’s called the land of a thousand smiles and it’s been the greatest experience of my life to find out why.” In unfortunate dissimilarity to Uehlein’s tattoo, the biennial trips to Taw Saeng lack permanence. Lee’s hope of returning to Taw Saeng in 2015 remains only a hope for now – the decision rests in the hands of

By Beatrice Rosen Six Los Angeles residents accompanied Pastor Doug Lee on an 11-day mission trip to Thailand with the intention of effecting change in the lives of impoverished children. However, upon return, the individuals found themselves more personally changed than ever anticipated. Since opening the doors of Culver City’s Catalyst Evangelical Covenant Church in 2006, Lee said he has wanted to establish a continuing relationship with and commitment to an international organization where members could visit on mission trips. In 2010, the Westchester resident finally found that organization: Taw Saeng. While Lee and his congregation have not yet set up a permanent location in Culver City, they currently meet on Sunday mornings at Kentwood Elementary School in Westchester. Located in Chiang Mai, Thailand, Taw Saeng is a children’s ministry project of The Garden of Hope that protects at-risk children from abuse and exploitation. The national staff and international volunteers reach out to displaced and disadvantaged children on the streets, several of whom have been exploited sexually, and take them to the organization’s singlewide facility to be fed healthy meals, get help with homework, taught social survival skills and play in a safe environment. According to the International Labor Organization’s 2012 estimate, 26 percent of victims who are forced into labor, including trafficking survivors, are under the age of 18, and 1.3 million children are being trafficked each year. The U.S. Department of State’s “Trafficking in Persons Report 2012” particularly references Thailand as a source, destination and transit country for men, women and children subjected to forced labor and sex trafficking. The Taw Saeng center currently serves approximately 35 of these vulnerable children in a key “red-light district” of the slums during weekday afternoons and evenings, and Lee was eager to “come and provide personnel, bodies and support to the four full-time staff members with the students.” Lee took the first group of Catalyst members to Taw Saeng in November 2010, including film and television script

the Catalyst congregation. “It’s not an issue of other things taking precedence, it’s just more of the nature of how our church makes decisions,” Lee says. “If there was anything to hinder the process it’s interest… if people continue to have a passion for this ministry, then we go.” Lee doesn’t see any reason why Catalyst wouldn’t continue to be committed to going on the mission trips, but the conversation hasn’t happened yet because every year has a new budget and therefore decisions must be made on a yearly basis. As much as Lee would like to start planning and fundraising for a future trip, the memories from the past two will have to sustain him for now. This includes taking the kids out to the moat – Chiang Mai city is a moated city – for the Songkran Festival, a week of chaotic water fights and nonstop partying to kick off the New Year and official start to summer. “It doesn’t matter if you are going to work, school or just roaming the street, everyone is fair game,” Lee recalls. “Everyone has a bucket or supersoaker in their hands, and is literally blasting each other in these massive water fights.” By taking the kids into the city for a day to participate in the festival, Lee believes “it’s moments like this when reality gets suspended and these kids just get to be kids and have a water fight.” Although Lee and his team members were only in Thailand for 11 days, he says they gave the children of Taw Saeng opportunities to forget about the challenges they face, and memories that are going to get them through the more challenging times to come. However, a feeling of ongoing responsibility to continue helping these children

seems to constantly manifest itself in the thoughts of each team member. For Askew, the feeling was powerful enough to send her packing back to Chiang Mai for good. For Uehlein, the feeling was powerful enough to send him straight to the tattoo parlor and daily visits to the post office and facebook.com. The other members also continue to give by telling their stories to anyone who will listen, inspiring people to donate to Taw Saeng or even sponsor a child. Yet the children of Taw Saeng, without even knowing it, gave Lee and his team members an even greater gift: the opportunity for self-discovery. “Part of our own transformation, our own life change, our own perspective and growth as human beings I think happens when we put ourselves in the context of service,” Lee says. “We discover something about ourselves that perhaps can’t be discovered or found any other way than by putting your heart and soul out there for the needs of others.” The future of the relationship between Culver City’s Catalyst Evangelical Church and Taw Saeng remains blurry, but no matter the mileage of separation, members say there is always something that can be done to help. “It’s easy to be paralyzed by the broadness of poverty and challenges like this,” Lee acknowledges. “But to say that I can make a commitment to a small organization that’s affecting the lives of a specific number of people, then that’s something I can do.” Indeed, Lee and his congregation have done just that. 

Mayor-elect answers questions on LAX, parking, community care homes Photos by Roy Persinko

MAR VISTA COMMUNITY COUNCIL CHAIR SHARON COMMINS, seated second from left, was one of several Westside community leaders who attended the “Back to Basics” town hall in Mar Vista.

(Continued from cover) runway will be an important factor. “I’m not looking to stack (the board) with people who are opposed to moving the runway or are opposed to having a public transit link (into the airport), but I do want people who reflect my values and positions and who are skilled at bringing people together,” he said. Garcetti said connecting the Metro Green Line to the airport will be “one of the highest priorities” during his tenure as mayor. “Whether through a People Mover or a direct (light) rail link - which has its challenges but is not impossible - in order to be a world class airport and to address community concerns, I can’t think of a higher priority,” he said. The town hall impressed a number of Westsiders, not all of whom voted for Garcetti. Mar Vista resident Sherri Akers said she has seen “more of Eric Garcetti in Mar Vista in one week than I saw of Mayor (Antonio) Villaraigosa in four years, so that is certainly encouraging.” Akers, who attended the town hall, said she enjoyed the design of the event, which asked residents to break into small groups and list their ideas. “I liked the fact that (it) seemed to be more than a sound bite and a photo op,” she noted. “He genuinely seemed to be interested in looking at what was on the post-its on each board.” Nora MacLellan, who hosted a “meet and greet” for the mayor-elect in her Playa del Rey home in February, also was pleased with the town hall’s format. “It was not like the usual town halls where it is a ‘free-for-all’ where constituents air their grievances or pet issues and then, surprise, nothing happens but some good sound bites for the local nightly news,” said MacLellan, a member of the Neighborhood Council of Westchester-Playa. “In Saturday’s event it was organized on issues that the mayor-elect would like to focus on – neighborhoods, jobs and the economy and making City Hall work.” On another controversial topic, the mayor-elect said he would not support

Pollywog Crew, L.A.’s only Beastie Boys tribute band, will bring some ‘(Brass) Monkey’ business to Venice Art Crawl By Michael Aushenker “What’s the time? It’s time to get iiiilllll!” Three MCs and one DJ intend to bring it back to 1986 when Pollywog Crew, L.A.’s only ongoing Beastie Boys tribute band, play Windward Circle on Thursday, June 20, as part of the Venice Art Crawl. Cey Adams, a Beastie Boys bud since their teen years whose artwork graced albums such as 1998’s “Hello Nasty,” told The Argonaut, “I’ve seen a couple Beastie Boys cover bands, but these guys are the closest thing to sounding like them. I was really moved by that.” Like many Beastie fans, Pollywog’s Dino Carillo remembers where he was on May 4, 2012, when Adam “MCA” Yauch, eldest of the New York rappers (which also included Adam “Ad-Rock” Horovitz and Michael “Mike D.” Diamond), passed away from cancer at 47, mere days after Beastie Boys were inducted into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame. “I was in the middle of work and I saw a headline online,” Carillo recalled. “It felt like someone had knocked the wind out of me. It was a landslide of thoughts (followed by) the reality that I’ll never get to see or hear the three of them perform or record new music again.” Carillo’s buddy, musician Jeff Davis, was also devastated. Just the year before, he had lost his stepfather to cancer. Three months later, Davis (“Jeff-D”) and Carillo (“D-Rock”) joined forces with Jay Lepito (“MCJ”) and their DJ Hurricane/Mix Master Mike surrogate, Luis Roble (DJ LuMan), debuting Pollywog Crew at a Halloween show (dressed as the characters from Beastie’s “Sabotage” video). The Valley-based crew began gigging around Los Angeles: Paladino’s in Tarzana, the Sunset Strip’s Whiskey a Go Go, and Santa Monica’s Smashbox Studios. “Everyone in our group is influenced by the Beastie Boys,” said Carillo, who cites the album “Paul’s Boutique” and 1990s output “Check Your Head” and “Ill Communication” as his personal favorites. “We don’t stay true to any albums at all.” For Generations X and Y, the somber 2012 end to Yauch’s epic battle with cancer gave many pause. In their heyday, following their propulsive debut “Licensed to Ill” in 1986, the cartoony, beer-spewing teenaged Beastie Boys – fueled on raunchy, smartass lyrics praising White Castle and name-checking Abe Vigoda, Phyllis Diller and Bullwinkle Moose – became a notorious musical act, on a par with England’s Sex

“Licensed’s” interior, collaborated at Sherman Oaks’ Basement 818, where Bak displayed her 1980s Beastie Boys images. “The Pollywog Crew came to my attention after MCA’s death (as) fans and friends were realizing that we wouldn’t see the Beastie Boys perform live again,” Bak said. “But when I heard them and closed my eyes, their performance… warmed my heart.” “I was so moved,” Adams said after first hearing Pollywog Crew. “I had to walk out of the room.” Although they perform “Licensed”-era hits “Fight for Your Right” and “Brass Monkey,” Pollywog does not emulate the boorish 1980s

built in the early ‘90s where they based their Grand Royale label and put out their Grand Royale ‘zine. One of Davis’ favorite tracks is from that period – the late Yauch’s solo turn “Bodhisattva Vow,” “Ill Communication’s” penultimate track; a redemption song for past sins laid out over Asian chanting. (Yauch became a Buddhist by the mid-1990s and married a Tibetan activist.) When Davis read the lyrics, he realized that only Yauch could have crafted such a rap song with this type of conviction. The short time Pollywog has paid tribute to their favorite musicians has become somewhat of an odyssey for the quartet. Bak has “taken them

Pistols a decade earlier. Def Jam Records’ Caucasian response to rap group Run-DMC, the Beasties shook up the establishment and the Bible Belt with antics including concerts boasting thong-clad girls in cages and a giant hydraulic phallus, terrorizing musicians Robert Palmer and Janet Jackson on awards shows, and originally titling their major label debut with a homophobic slur. With the global success of their second single, the anthemic “Fight for Your Right (to Party),” Beastie Boys brought African-American rap music to the ‘burbs, detonating an anarchic rock-rap hybrid album that put this Jewish-American rap outfit in the history books as the first rap artists ever to reach No. 1 on Billboard’s Top 200 (“Licensed” topped the charts for four weeks and eventually sold more than 10 million units). In 1989, they released “Paul’s Boutique,” the sample-dense hip hop masterpiece nobody bought at the time. The expensive-to-produce “Paul’s” presented a more nocturnal, layered sound, infused with a cornucopia of funk, electro-funk and disco riffs that swapped out the metallic Led Zeppelin and AC/DC bites from their minimalist debut for James Brown, Curtis Mayfield and Sly and the Family Stone. “Paul’s” was a slow burn, over time becoming a revered apogee of hip-hop artistry. With their commercial success peaking during “Licensed’s” reign, Beastie Boys “matured” by the mid‘90s into trendsetting hipsters. Both their personalities and their musical style went through changes as they

Whereas they once thumbed their nose at authority and suggested obscene uses for a whiffle ball bat, they now publicly recanted for the misogyny and homophobia, championing women’s rights and getting politically active, including supporting causes such as the Free Tibet movement. Their albums became veritable genre mix tapes, alternating the rap with rock, jazz and lounge cuts. Beastie Boys somehow morphed into a cutting-edge alternative band with a smaller yet solid following, staying relevant through their last studio album, 2011’s “Hot Sauce Committee, Part 2,” on which the lead single’s video (directed by Yauch) featured actors such as Seth Rogen, Danny McBride, Elijah Cook, Chloë Sevigny, Steve Buscemi and Ted Danson. Curiously, Pollywog Crew borrow their name from their heroes’ pre“Licensed” tween hardcore EP, 1982’s “Poly Wog Stew.” “It wasn’t taken very seriously by the punk community,” Carillo said of the EP. “It just always stuck in my mind.” For Davis, the eclectic “Check Your Head” was his gateway album at age 12. “I heard ‘Gratitude’ and ‘Pass the Mic’ and I was blown away,” he recalled. “It made me want to be a musician.” In March, the Crew and Venice artist Sunny Bak, who photographed Beastie’s World’s Fair image for

The Beastie Boys circa 1986. Left to right: Adam “MCA” Yauch, Adam “Ad-Rock” Horovitz and Michael “Mike D.” Diamond. Photo by Venice resident Sunny Bak, from the sleeve of the Beastie Boys’ multi-platinum debut album, “Licensed to Ill.”

Beasties. Per the reformed Beasties’ enlightened views, they refuse to play the more sexist early songs that even the Beasties themselves avoided in later concerts. “A lot of people ask us to play ‘Girls,’” said Carillo of one song they’ve banished. Operating as a rap group, Pollywog Crew do not perform instrument-driven 1990s cuts, instead delivering the hookiest rap songs off each album: “Paul’s’” “Shake Your Rump” and “Shadrach,” “Hello Nasty’s” “Intergalactic” and “Body Movin,” and “Check It Out” and “Triple Trouble” off of 2004’s “To The Five Boroughs.” “Like Madonna, the Beastie Boys were able to reinvent themselves,” Carillo said. “Every album doesn’t sound like the album before it. They were white guys being themselves. They weren’t trying to be black. They were effortlessly cool.” Davis lives in Atwater Village, walking distance from G-Son Studios, the recording facility the Beasties

under her wing,” Carillo said, recently bringing the boys to Largo in West Hollywood to see performer Bridget Everett, whose friend, Beastie Boy Horovitz, backed her on bass. Post-show, Bak and Adams introduced them to their hero, who responded, “Oh, you’re the ones I’ve been hearing about...” “That was the apex,” Davis said of the encounter. “He’s my favorite Beastie Boy.” According to Davis, their next step is to introduce their own original raps into their set list. But for now, Pollywog Crew promise a fun show of pure Beastiemania June 20, including a steady flow of “Pollywog Juice.” So Beastie fans, please note: this is a “BYOBM” kind of party (“Bring your own Brass Monkey”). Pollywog Crew will perform at 8:30 p.m. June 20 at 1500 Main St., Venice (next door to Hama Sushi). Information, Polywogcrew.com.  Michael@ArgonautNews.com


A bookstore that is ‘hungry for change’

Food and fitness authors/filmmakers to appear at revamped Mystic Journey this leap was fear itself. “Fear of the unknown is what held me back from taking the step of opening Mystic Journey many years earlier,” Segal said. “I now believe, really know, more strongly than ever, that with trust in one’s self, and in the universe, there is nothing to fear from the unknown, and that all that is asked for will be provided.” Colquhoun and Ten Bosch are only the third big appearances booked at this new location. Popular spiritual lecturer Mary Ann Williamson appeared at Mystic’s re-opening party and store blessing, which drew hundreds to the new site. “It feels more like home,” Witt said. “The energy is more relaxed and calm.” She stressed that Mystic is now more than just an eclectic book store. A “Morning Movement and Meditation Series” of classes is scheduled from 9:30-11 a.m. weekday mornings, with yoga instructors Megan Monahan, Lisa de Narvaez, Michael Brian Baker, Karen Elaine and Riyaana Hartley. A wave of interest in the way Americans eat, approach fitness, and medicate themselves (all often unhealthily) has proliferated in the form of documentaries, books and movies with catchy titles such as “Super-Size Me,” “Food, Inc.,” “Fast Food Nation” and “Prozac

Nation.” Colquhoun’s father was one of the people that material was meant for. “We intervened and he tried to believe what they were saying he didn’t believe it,” Colquhoun said. “So we did our film.” That documentary changed the way Colquhoun’s father saw things. “He had a complete shift,” Colquhoun said. “Within three months, after five years of chronic fatigue syndrome, depression and anxiety, he had that turn-around, that transformation. He lost 50 pounds. “We share clothes now. He’s a bigger hippie than me now. He just got back from India. This guy was like an accountant.” Originally from Australia and freshly arrived in the U.S., Colquhoun and Ten Bosch are not out to debunk the abovereferenced mass-consumed works but to add to it. “People are very confused,” Ten Bosch explained. “Even though there is so much information out there, there is a lot of conflicting information. We’re trying to simplify it for people. “Instead of ‘I can’t have that,’” she continued, describing their approach, “how about we add wonderful, healthy foods into our life? Once you do that, (after a while) you don’t have any more room for the bad ones.” Colquhoun and Ten Bosch,

who is eight months pregnant with their first child, are currently in the throes of creating a book and film about prenatal and postpregnancy nutrition. Ten Bosch noted that, in her homeland, “they don’t necessarily need this information. People live by the beach (and engage in a healthy lifestyle). But in America, there’s a real need for this.” That said, she added that their adopted communities of Santa Monica and Venice are progressive communities where their views on food and fitness are shared. “It’s like being in heaven,” Ten Bosch said. (The couple divides their time on three month intervals between Santa Monica and Australia, where they have an office with a staff of eight.) “We are communicating with people who are on the same wavelength. That energy encourages us to keep challenging ourselves.” Energy, such as that found at Mystic Journey. “We are growing, we are flourishing,” Witt said of her place of work. “A lot of people are expressing gratitude since Bodhi Tree (the longtime likeminded bookstore on Melrose Avenue near La Cienega Boulevard) closed.” Appearances such as Colquhoun and Ten Bosch’s are what his old store was all about –and what the new location will continue to be. “I continue to be amazed and

By Michael Aushenker If there are two people who know what works and what doesn’t in a billion-dollar selfhelp industry awash in books and movies addressing food and fitness issues, it’s James Colquhoun and Laurentine Ten Bosch, authors of “Hungry For Change” and the filmmakers behind 2008’s “Food Matters.” Mystic Journey Bookstore, 1624 Abbot Kinney Blvd. in Venice, will welcome the married couple-authors-filmmakers at its Summer Garden Book Party on Saturday, June 22 for a Q&A discussion, accompanied by a bevy of healthy, organic refreshments. Mystic Journey has been on its own “mystic journey” of late. Earlier this month, the bookstore re-opened just a couple blocks away from its old locale. “Our lease was up,” said Jennie Witt, Mystic’s event coordinator. “We have a bigger space now. The problem was there was no sound barrier with the events. That was always an issue, but now there’s a whole meditation garden.” “It was a magical day, with the store filled with incredible people and energy,” said the bookstore’s founder, Jeffrey Segal. “It was the perfect launch to the next phase of Mystic Journey.” The store’s owner told The Argonaut that the only fear holding him back from making

Santa Monica to join daylong celebration of music The city of Santa Monica will partner with Make Music Los Angeles to host musical performances throughout the day in Palisades Park from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday, June 21. Based on France’s Fête de la Musique, a national musical holiday inaugurated in 1982, the 11-hour countywide celebration will feature concerts in a

variety of locations, including community gardens, plazas, schools, courtyards and parks. Amateurs, students, professionals and established artists are all invited to volunteer their time to perform in the free concert venues. “Our hope is to inspire new creative works, develop new audiences and celebrate

our cultural differences by crisscrossing the county and discovering the hidden musical gems L.A. has to offer,” says Make Music Los Angeles Founder/Executive Director Dorsay Dujon. In addition to musicians being able to perform in parks, on sidewalks and at the beach, the city will host a stage in

Palisades Park near Santa Monica Boulevard and Ocean Avenue from 11:45 a.m. to 6:45 p.m. The day kicks off with “The 100 Hohner Harmonica Project,” where attendees can participate in a community lesson and performance led by Tom Nolan, musician and leader of the Tom Nolan Band who also serves as dean of students at Crossroads

School for the Arts and Sciences. “By participating in Make Music L.A., Santa Monica aims to provide a platform for local musicians and expose residents and tourists to some of our unique, homegrown talent,” says Allison Ostrovsky, city cultural affairs supervisor.

This soup is sheer poetry! By Richard Foss

Richard@RichardFoss.com

Santouka

3760 W. Centinela Ave. Mar Vista. 310-391-1101. Imagine that the only burgers you had ever had came from drive-through windows, or that the only fried chicken you experienced had a goateed Southern gentleman on the side of a cardboard bucket. Then imagine that one day you had a gourmet burger on a freshly baked bun, and pan-fried chicken the way a dedicated Southern grandmother can make it. Imagine the revelation, the joy in discovering that something that had been bland and dull could be exciting. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the way many people feel when they try ramen at Santouka in Mar Vista after a lifetime of eating the instant stuff. Instead of the dominant flavors being salt and instant bouillon, the broth here is intensely flavored, and the noodles have the springy texture you only get from fresh pasta. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an especially surprising experience because the place doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look like the kind of establishment that features quality ingredients; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a food court counter in a supermarket. Granted, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just any supermarket â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Mitsuwa is the premier Japanese grocery on the Westside, so the customer base here knows its noodles. The menu looks vast at first, but take a second look and it has many slight variations on a theme. There are rice bowls topped with various ingredients and bowls of soup that consist of combined meat and vegetables with one of four broths. There is a display of plastic replicas of their menu items right by the place where you order, so you can gauge the quantity of each dish quite nicely. I decided to try a combination that consisted of a medium bowl of spicy pork noodles with green onion, seaweed, and vegetables along with a pickled egg and a bowl of rice topped with salmon roe and sliced seaweed. The salmon eggs, called ikura in Japanese, are one of my favorite items at sushi bars â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they have a light, fresh flavor of the sea, and the experience of eating them has been compared to popping bubble wrap with your teeth. They were a perfect complement to the soup, a hearty, very flavorful broth with liberal use of spices and red pepper. I usually discount any warnings that Japanese food may be spicy, but in this case it was actually both hot and multidimensional. The flavor of the broth actually stood up to the spices â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it was made with miso soybean paste and pork stock in a style that is a specialty of the northern island of Hokkaido, where it is very cold much of the year. Even in a California summer this was delicious, and I can only imagine what it is like to come home to this when there is snow on the ground. Alternating bites with the spicy soup, fresh ikura, and the tart pickled egg was a delightful experience. My dining companion had decided to dine lightly and ordered a bowl of rice topped with scallions and natto, a kind of pungent fermented soybean paste. I had actually warned him against this, as natto usually has an acquired taste that very few Americans actually acquire. I had compared it to what happened when the Japanese tried to make limburger cheese from soybeans, but he was undeterred. I was quite surprised when he tried it and enthusiastically dug in; I was even more surprised when I tried it and thought it was quite passable.

An employee at Santouka at the Mitsuwa Japanese market in Mar Vista serves a bowl of ramen, which include a combination of meat and vegetables in one of four broths, as well as a rice bowl with salmon roe.

None of my previous experiences with this sticky, salty, funky tasting stuff had been positive, but somehow it was less of an assault on the senses and more like an aged camembert or other ripe French cheese. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still not something I expect to order very often, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have it again. We dined at a clean, comfortable table at the edge of the food court, where business went from languid to bustling in the half hour between 11:30 a.m. and noon. Most of the customers appeared to be Japanese, and many had obviously combined their visit with shopping in the grocery and produce sections before grabbing a bite. The adjacent market is a place of pilgrimage for anyone who likes to make Japanese food at home, and on my way out I browsed an aisle containing every permutation of dried seafood you could imagine, including candied squid jerky. The ramen stall is a branch of a popular chain in Japan and is named after a haiku poet who wandered as a beggar for years. The food at Santouka is inexpensive enough that even a starving artist can probably afford a good lunch. Our full meal for two ran less than $25, modest for an experience of this quality. If you are looking for a place where you can dine fast, cheap and very well, you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do better. Santouka is at 3760 W. Centinela Ave. at the corner of Venice Boulevard, inside the Mitsuwa Market in Mar Vista. Open daily 11 a.m.-8:30 p.m., ample free parking, no alcohol served. 310-3911101. ď&#x201A;§ Richard@RichardFoss.com

Q&A

We want to add an outdoor kitchen to our new home. What tips can you give us on this project? A: Outdoor kitchens make dining al fresco at home more appealing than ever. Great for gatherings and socializing, having a kitchen and dining area outdoors also eliminates some of the indoor mess and hassle of food preparation and makes for a more inclusive cooking experience. With features ranging from simple and functional to more extravagant, an outdoor kitchen investment comes with a return that’s at least equal to a major kitchen remodel – 80 percent or more. Here are a few elements to keep in mind when crafting your outdoor living space: Outdoor kitchen appliances. Durability is paramount for any outdoor appliance and should be a primary concern,

Local News & Culture

especially if you live in a harsh climate, even if you cover your appliances in inclement weather. Cooking fuels are commonly gas or charcoal, but outdoor kitchens can incorporate a wood-burning oven, outdoor fireplace, or a fire pit. Barbeque fans might opt to include a smoker or mesquite grill. Higher end outdoor kitchens often include ample counter top space, drawers and cabinets for storage, a sink, and refrigeration. Existing utility connections could narrow your choices, but you can run a natural gas line to the outdoor kitchen. Adequate plumbing pressure is a must in order to accommodate hot and cold running water. Outdoor kitchen space. If you have an existing deck or patio, you could

develop that space into a kitchen area. If you install an island and bar area with stools or opt for a simple outdoor dining set, consider protecting your space from the elements, just as you would your appliances. Some kitchens incorporate a roof, covered archway or pergola; others could need only an ample patio umbrella to also protect diners from weather. Special roofs and coverings can allow you to cook outdoors year round – even in inclement weather. Outdoor kitchen flow. To build functionality into your outdoor kitchen, consider the flow of space just as you would your indoor entertaining areas. Keep your cooking area accessible to your

indoor kitchen to experience less running around with dishes and ingredients you keep inside the home. Outdoor kitchen ambiance. Keep lighting in mind when it comes to evenings. It’s a lovely time to relax outside after the sun goes down, and inviting lighting enhances the experience. Create a mood with built-in lighting and strands of hanging lights. Gas and traditional tiki torches are an option that maintains that outdoorsy atmosphere. This week’s question was answered by Bob and Cheryl Herrera, Professional Real Estate Services, (310) 306 – 5427.

ROAD TO DISCOVERY bike rider Greg Crawford will pay a visit to the Westchester home of Jessica Leoni, who is afflicted with the rare genetic disease known as Neimann Pick Type C. Above, Leoni is shown with her parents, Anthony and Lisa.

By Geoff Maleman Greg Crawford, dean of the College of Science of Notre Dame University, is kicking off his Fourth Annual Road to Discovery bike ride. Each year, he bikes across the United States to raise awareness and research funds for Neimann Pick Type C disease â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a rare genetic, disease primarily affecting children for which no known cure exists. Children with NP-C rarely live into their teenage years. This year, Crawford will begin in Long Beach and finish his bike journey in Baltimore. On Wednesday, June 26, from 2 to 3:30 p.m., Crawford will be at the Leoni family house in Westchester to meet with Jessica Leoni, who is afflicted with NP-C. The community is invited to the Leoni house at 6061 W. 75th St. in Westchester to show support for Crawford. Leoni will be 16 years old on July 6. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Her gentle spirit, deep faith in God, love for life, and for everyone manifested itself early,â&#x20AC;? said her father, Anthony Leoni. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From the time she was a toddler, her eyes, beautiful smile and warm giggles spoke all of these beautiful things. When Jessica was about eight months old she was diagnosed with Niemann-Pick Type C disease. The onset of severe NP-C symptoms began in May of 2005. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our hope for Jessica and all children with NP-C is that there will be an end to this terrible disease and the smiles, laughter and dancing

be restored by a cure. Jess lost speech when her symptoms became severe. The last words Mom heard Jess say were, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Do Good, Do Good, Do Good.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; We would like to give our heartfelt gratitude to all the researchers, scientists and any person who has chosen to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Do Goodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for NiemannPick Type C.â&#x20AC;? Please join Jessica Leoni and friends in cheering on Crawford and continuing the fight to cure NP-C. For more information, Anthony Leoni at aleoni@pacbell.net.

Dustin Brown of SMC will be competing against five other Los Angeles area students with his entry, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Solidarity.â&#x20AC;? The finalists were chosen from out of 22 of the most elite film schools from across Southern California that were asked to submit student films for consideration. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are thrilled that the six films selected by our jury reflect an exciting, diverse set of themes,â&#x20AC;? said Donald Haber, BAFTA Los Angeles executive director. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The craftsmanship and story-telling is impressive, and represents the high standard of films currently being produced by student filmmakers.â&#x20AC;? All six films will be screened at the June 20 ceremony, where BAFTA Los Angeles members will cast their vote onsite for the winner. In addition, a separate, special Jury Prize will be awarded by an invited panel of Hollywood

Santa Monica College selects manager of the year

Dean of Counseling and Retention Brenda Johnson Benson has been named Santa Monica Collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2013 Manager of the Year. In her nearly 30 years at the college Benson has provided support services to students such as helping with transfers to four-year universities and assisting veteran students. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Brenda personifies the best of Santa Monica College, combining a nurturing and supportive management style with a push for constant improvement and innovation. She is truly an outstanding manager,â&#x20AC;? said SMC President Dr. Chui L. Tsang. Benson, a Westchester resident, began working at SMC as an intern as a graduate student in the School of Education at UCLA. She moved up the ranks at SMC from intern to counselor to coordinator/assistant dean of transfer services, a position she held for 10 years from 1988 to 1998. According to SMC officials, it was in this capacity and with her leadership that, in 1989, SMC first distinguished

itself as the leader in transfers, sending more students to the University of California system than any other community college in the state. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Brenda is a strong and unyielding advocate for her students, colleagues and the community college mission,â&#x20AC;? said SMC Transfer Center faculty leader Dan Nannini, â&#x20AC;&#x153;She is an educator for the educators and, for this, she is held in the highest regard.â&#x20AC;? In 1998, Benson was promoted to her current position, dean of counseling and retention, where her focus shifted to developing strategies that would support SMC to both retain students until graduation and to support them with tools needed to succeed both during and after their time at SMC. She also oversees 10 specialized counseling programs that serve veterans and other underrepresented student populations. Benson is currently near the end of a one-year term as president of the SMC Management Association.

Walgrove Avenue Elementary School in Mar Vista closed out the 2012-13 school year with the dedication of new murals by local artist Renee Raymond and the P.S. ARTS Family Night. Last month the school unveiled six original campus murals, designed and created by Raymond with funding support by the Venice Neighborhood Council. Olivia Adams, the principal at Walgrove, spearheaded the effort and engaged parent support in organizing the opportunity for children to take part in the art project. Raymond worked closely with students across all grade levels collaborating on the theme, design and creation of the murals. The students were encouraged to express their creative vision and support each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s differences throughout the project, a school spokesperson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They loved to see the transformation,â&#x20AC;? said Raymond.

Three men charged in shooting death of Santa Monica man Two reputed gang members have been charged with murder and attempted murder and a Los Angeles man was charged as an accessory in connection with the fatal shooting of a Santa Monica man June 11, authorities said. Gil Verastegui, 29, died at a local hospital after he was shot in an alley behind the 1700 block of 15th Street in Santa Monica, police said. A second man who was shot remains hospitalized. The incident occurred four days after a gunman killed five people in a shooting spree before police shot him to death at the Santa Monica College library. Police say the two victims in the June 11 incident were standing in the alley when a Hispanic man allegedly walked up and fired several rounds at them before fleeing westbound on Michigan Avenue to an awaiting vehicle. Through their investigation police were led to the 1500 block of Armacost in West Los Angeles, where two suspects who matched the description given by witnesses were taken into custody after attempting to

flee on foot, Sgt. Richard Lewis said. A third suspect was taken into custody inside a nearby apartment, Lewis said. After police served a search warrant, they located and recovered a handgun believed to have been used in the shooting, Lewis said. The Los Angeles County District Attorneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office has charged Christopher Chonan Osumi, 19, of Los Angeles, and Meliton Lorenzo Lopez, 23, of Los Angeles, with one count each of murder and attempted murder with gang allegations, district attorney spokeswoman Jane Robison said. The complaint alleges Osumi personally discharged a handgun. The third suspect, Noah Jason Farris, 32, has been charged with being an accessory, Robison said. Prosecutors asked for bail to be set at $3 million each for Osumi and Lopez and $500,000 for Farris. If convicted, Osumi and Lopez face up to life in state prison, while Farris faces up to seven years in state prison, Robison said.

Santa Monica

Cyclist sentenced to probation in collision with pedestrian

A Los Angeles man who pleaded guilty to assaulting a pedestrian while riding his bicycle in Santa Monica has been sentenced to three years formal felony probation and 30 days of community service, police said. Rocky Martin was riding his bicycle eastbound on Santa Monica Boulevard at the Third Street Promenade on June 24, 2012, when police say he failed to stop for a red light and struck a pedestrian who was in the crosswalk. The pedestrian received serious injuries in the collision, Sgt. Richard Lewis said. Lewis noted that the Santa Monica Police Department is committed to educating the public on

traffic safety and enforcing traffic violations. During the months of April and May, motor officers issued 86 citations to bicyclists for violations that ranged from riding on the sidewalk to failing to yield for traffic signals, Lewis said. To address poor driving behaviors, the Santa Monica Police Department focuses on specific violations. For the months of July through September, the police department will focus on bicycle violations, Lewis said. Information, Sgt. Phillbo Rubish with the Santa Monica Police Departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Traffic Section at (310) 458-8950, or Lt. Jay Trisler at (310) 458-8471.

New member joins Friends of Ballona Wetlands board The environmental organization Friends of Ballona Wetlands has appointed Andrew R. Henderson to its board of directors. Friends of Ballona Wetlands President David Kay noted that Henderson has performed legal work on behalf of the organization since the mid-1990s. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re thrilled that he will bring his considerable conservation expertise to our board, and we look forward to his input as we continue to advocate for the restoration of Ballona Wetlands,â&#x20AC;? Kay said. A Mar Vista resident, Henderson served as a public interest litigator from 1994 to 2002. He provided legal counsel to Friends of Ballona Wetlands during the time that the fresh water marsh at Ballona was planned, permitted and eventually completed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I look forward to working with the Friends to advance the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mission, particularly as we work with our stakeholders to ensure that the planned restoration of Ballona

Wetlands proceeds in a scientifically sound fashion, one that will benefit Los Angeles communities and ecosystems,â&#x20AC;? Henderson said. Since 2005, he has served as the executive vice president and general counsel of Building Industry Association of Southern California, Inc., a nonprofit trade association that represents nearly 1,000 member companies involved in residential community development in six counties. Henderson graduated with honors in 1990 from the University of North Carolina School of Law, and received a masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree from the University of Southern California in 1981. From 1996 to 1999, he served on the city of Los Angeles Charter Reform Commission. He has argued cases in several state and federal courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court, and advises the building industry association and its affiliates on issues related to the California Environmental Quality Act as well as other local, state and federal environmental policies and regulations.

PERSONAL INJURY

With the help of several individuals and community organizations, the Boys & Girls Club of Venice has awarded $50,000 in college scholarships to club members who are entering either two year colleges or four year universities in the fall. The winners of the Wise Family Foundation Scholarship, which annually awards four renewable $2,000 scholarships over four years, are Kimberly Woodruff of Culver City High School, Ashton Edior of Gardena Serra High School, and Erika Tavares and Dilan Torres of Santa Monica High School. The Wise Family Foundation has committed $162,000 in college scholarships to 22 club alumni over the last five years. The scholarship fund was started by the clubsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; past board president and current board of governors member Michael Wise, a partner at JH Snyder Co. The David C. Mandell â&#x20AC;&#x153;In His Footstepsâ&#x20AC;? Scholarship awarded three $1,000 college scholarships in honor of the founder and first executive director of the Boys & Girls Club of Venice. Faye Mandell, David Mandellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s widow,

and their daughter Arielle Mandell, who now serves on the board of directors, have selected Woodruff, and Freddy Garcia and Jose Garcia of Venice High School as their 2013 scholarship recipients. This year, past Boys & Girls Club of Venice board member Pat Kandel established the Ruth Wells College Scholarship in honor of her late mother. The inaugural Ruth Wells College Scholarship recipients are Freddy Garcia, Victor Monroy of Palisades Charter High School, Briseida Vargas of Venice High School and Woodruff. Additional college scholarship funds were provided by the Boys & Girls Club of Veniceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Youth of the Year event sponsors including Bank of America, CAPS Universal, Robins Kaplan Miller and Ciresi, LLP, Nestle USA, Sonrise Westside Church, Staples, and Toyota Financial Services. The Playa Venice Sunrise Rotary Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Caroline Gold Scholarship also awarded a scholarship. Information, www.bgcv.org.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Intellectual virtuesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; as part of education featured at LMU conference Top scholars in education, philosophy and psychology will gather at Loyola Marymount University for the first-of-its-kind conference on the importance of teaching intellectual character and intellectual virtues in schools on Friday and Saturday, June 21 and 22. Intellectual virtues include curiosity, openmindedness, attentiveness, creativity, intellectual humility and intellectual perseverance, say event organizers. The conference will explore these traits, why they are important to education, and what it looks like in the classroom when educators encourage students to apply the traits. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the first event of its kind and it has attracted internationally renowned figures in education, philosophy and psychology,â&#x20AC;? said Jason Baehr, a philosophy professor at LMUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bellarmine College of Liberal Arts who organized

the conference. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a general sense that the present focus on high-stakes, standardized testing, and the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;teaching to the testâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; that inevitably ensues, has led to a depersonalization of the learning process,â&#x20AC;? Baehr added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope the conference will jumpstart an even broader national conversation about intellectual virtues and education.â&#x20AC;? The conference is part of the Intellectual Virtues Education Project that was launched by Baehr last year with a $1 million grant from the John Templeton Foundation. The conference is open to the public and preregistration is strongly encouraged. Registration is $25 and includes two lunches, a dinner and a reception.

Spinners pedal for a cure in YAS-A-THON YAS Fitness Center in Venice will be one of four Southern California locations that will take part in the fourth annual YAS-A-THON, a three-hour exercise bike ride beginning at 1 p.m. Sunday, June 23. Organizers hope the event will help raise over a quarter million dollars for ThinkCure!, a nonprofit organization that raises funds to accelerate collaborative research to cure cancer. Sponsored by the YAS Fitness Centers, the weekend of events will include a silent auction to raise additional funds Saturday, June 22, along with the three-hour consecutive spin with more than 170 spinners from across Los Angeles and Orange County June 23. The Sunday spin session will be held at all four YAS locations in Venice, Silver Lake, Costa Mesa and downtown Los Angeles, event organizers said. Each rider has raised or contributed a minimum of $1,500. Organizers are still recruiting new sponsors and kick-off party attendees. Last year, the YAS-A-THON raised $197,000

for ThinkCure!. The money raised during the YAS-ATHON will go directly toward funding research focused on new, effective treatments for a range of cancers including brain cancer, leukemia and lymphoma, organizers said. ThinkCure!â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mission is particularly meaningful to YAS founder Kimberly Fowler, a brain cancer survivor and member of the non-profitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive board. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am honored that so many people are riding with us on June 23 and working so hard to help raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for cancer research and ThinkCure!, an organization close to my heart,â&#x20AC;? said Fowler. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are so many ways for the community to support our fundraising efforts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; sponsor a rider, join us at the silent auction and bid on some of our great prizes, or simply make a donation to ThinkCure! We appreciate every bit of help.â&#x20AC;? The YAS Fitness Center in Venice is at 1101 Abbot Kinney Blvd. Information, www.go2yas.com/studios/events.


Venice man takes top prize at Marina del Rey Halibut Derby Photo by Dave Bentley

Venice angler Tim Sheridan reeled in a 33.5pound catch to win the top prize at the 38th Annual Marina del Rey Halibut Derby, held June 8 and 9. As the first-place winner Sheridan earned a trip to Sitka Point Lodge in Alaska. He beat out Paul Thompson, who caught a 32.875-pound halibut to win a tuna trip and thirdplace finisher Zigmond Fayani with a 26-pound halibut catch, winning a white seabass trip. Marina Del Rey Anglers, the group that presents the derby, donated the live fish weighed in to Hubbs-Seaworld fish hatchery in Carlsbad. The group says the derby has been a vital source of information to scientists on local halibut populations. The event also funds a major youth fishing activity of Marina Del Rey Anglers, which plans to take between 550 and 600 kids fishing for free this summer on the local party boat the Betty-O. As part of the program, club members ride along as mentors and teach the children about the ocean environment and good sportsmanship when fishing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was impressed by the nice quality fish that came in. Many of the fish that came in alive were big enough to really be valuable to the hatchery. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m stoked about that,â&#x20AC;? Halibut Derby Chairman John Szymura said of the event. He estimated that the prizes awarded and raffles won easily topped $20,000 in total value. The top female angler entrant was Stacy Dumais, who caught a 9.7-pound rockfish. The top two youths also got trophies and prizes.
