Westside state Assembly race heats up Attack mailer targets son of Mark Ridley-Thomas, who has raised 10 times the funds of his opponents

By Gary Walker An otherwise listless special election contest to fill a state Assembly seat representing Mar Vista, Del Rey, Culver City and other Westside communities got a jolt of energy last week from a campaign mailer that targeted one candidate for his special relationship with the Los Angeles County Supervisor representing the area — that of father and son. Sebastian RidleyThomas, the 25-year-old scion of Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas, faces former Culver City Mayor Christopher Armenta, 49, and Olympic Park Neighborhood Council President

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti speaks as City Councilman Mike Bonin looks on during a panel discussion at Loyola Marymount University

Garcetti, Bonin weigh in on LAX’s future Officials question airport emergency response and speak out against runway relocation during LMU forum By Gary Walker Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and other city officials new to their offices this year discussed a variety of issues concerning Westsiders — the future of Los Angeles International Airport among them — during a Nov. 6 forum at Loyola

Marymount University. Garcetti was joined by City Controller Ron Galperin, City Attorney Mike Feuer and local Los Angeles City Councilman Mike Bonin at the “100 Days, Plus…” forum organized by Westside Democratic clubs to discuss the mutual benchmark in their terms.

But the Nov. 1 shooting spree at LAX that claimed the life of a federal airport security officer and left several others wounded came up almost immediately. “Our first responders did a heroic job, but there is room for improvement,” Bonin said of the airport’s response to the shooting in response to a question by panel moderator and KCRW 89.9 FM radio host Warren Olney. “In the cold light of day we have seen that there were way too many people who (Continued on page 6)

Artist is still ‘licensed to ill’

Sunny Bak, a Venice photographer who documented the Beastie Boys’ rise to fame, brings vintage celebrity images back into the public eye By Michael Aushenker Before TMZ, smart phones and the Internet, Venice fashion and music photographer Sunny Bak was shooting candid images of American icons — and she was only 14. In time her images, particularly those documenting the earliest years of the Beastie Boys, would achieve their own notoriety.

On Saturday, Bak and other artists will launch “Sleepwalking Through Dreamland,” a mixedmedia art show at Essentia Sleep Shop and Gallery in Santa Monica that includes prints she has exhumed from storage after more than three decades. The exhibit includes photos of Elizabeth Taylor, Andy Warhol, Ginger Rogers, Jackie Onassis, (Continued on page 22)

Letters Why not expand Abbot Kinney parking?

Re: “Parking upgrades ahead for Abbot Kinney,” news, Oct. 31 I read with interest your story about paid parking in the Abbot Kinney area of Venice. I love free parking but understand that Abbot Kinney Boulevard is one of the last retail areas of Los Angeles without paid parking. What I find distressing is that even though there’s a group of business owners pledging more that $4.5 million to build 200 spaces, the plan has failed to receive any city support. WHY? The city seems poised to spend

$1.6 million on the 50 spaces that the repaving project will produce. Why not let private dollars quadruple the amount of spaces? A combined $6.l million sounds like a good public/private project to me. Inquiring minds want to know... F. Bundy Venice

homeowner. Unfortunately, Joe’s thoughtful and balanced presentation was tainted by the careless first-page headline. It was the home invasion by a knife-wielding attacker — not the shooting of the attacker — that justifiably stoked safety fears in Del Rey!  I realize that “home invasion” takes more space than “shooting,” but layout considerations should not take priority over telling your readers the truth, and this headline is misleading.

Ditch the dull, make room for youth in Marina del Rey

redevelopment project was originally touted as a sort of European-style promenade like Cannes or Nice. But why would anyone want to go there to see what is shown in those pictures? To begin with the county’s idea to erect a Berlin Wall-like boat stacking tower sticking out 100 feet over the water at the entrance to Fiji Way is a sufficient discouragement for sightseers to venture down to a boring reworked Fisherman’s Village. The public is going to end up with the same unsatisfactory pedestrian and cycling trails down this key section of the coastal trail. The only thing that can lure crowds down Fiji Way is to turn it into a youth destination. Build a youth hostel which is often talked about but never comes to pass. Basketball and handball courts among the present colorful little buildings along the waterfront. Perhaps even a swimming pool, totally lacking in the Marina mix which is tilted towards seniors. How is the county going to be able to pay for this? Easy. Just put in a few nightclubs. The fuddy-duddies on the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors who shut down the only nightclub

in the Marina (the Organic Panificio) because kids were whooping it up until two in the morning may not be aware that kids like nightclubs. Just take a page out of developments in the most vital youth-oriented city in Europe — Barcelona. Fiji Way is ideal for nightclubs because there are no neighbors around to complain of noise. Also, youth-oriented proposals fit in well with the adjacent UCLA ramp where young people learn their boating skills. The county talks about visioning, but plans for Fisherman’s Village are going to turn it into a bigger fiasco than it is today. Bruce Russell Marina del Rey

didn’t know what to do and way too many [airport staff and officials] who couldn’t tell them what to do,” Bonin said. In the wake of the tragedy, thousands of travelers were left stranded in and around LAX while the airport was locked down for several hours with no departing flights. As passengers waited to retrieve belongings they abandoned while fleeing the gunman in Terminal 3, staff of the mayor’s office stepped up to assist those in immediate need. “There was one woman who I was told had to get heart medication for her father and my staff was able to help her with that,” Garcetti said after the meeting. Bonin has called on Los Angeles World Airports, which operates LAX, and the Board of Airport Commissioners report before year’s end on ways to improve “timely coordination with emergency response entities [and] dissemination of appropriate and relevant information to the traveling public” during an airport disaster. He also wants those same agencies to consider an airportwide communications system using the city’s and airport’s existing electronic screens and assign airport personnel to strategic locations to assist passengers during emergencies. Feuer weighed in on the fatal shooting as well, focusing on the alleged gunman’s actions. “One of my duties as city attorney will be to examine the continuing scourge of gun violence,” he said. “For me this is

a cause, not just a function of my job.” Another airport-related topic was LAX’s northern runway, which airport officials would like to move toward Playa del Rey and Westchester as part of its modernization plans. Both Bonin and Garcetti said they oppose the runway move and believe airport authorities should instead improve ground transportation flow before considering runway changes. “I’ve been consistent in my belief that the runway does not have to be moved,” Garcetti said. The mayor also said he backs a plan by Bonin to link LAX with Metropolitan Transportation Authority light rail lines by

who when taking office ordered all city department heads to reapply for their jobs, told the audience at LMU. Galperin stressed “utilizing the city’s financial resources in the most practical way” and said he would soon initiate audits of both Los Angeles World Airports and the city’s Dept. of Water and Power. “These are significant audits and will take some time,” Galperin said after the meeting. Cyndi Hench, president of the Neighborhood Council of Westchester-Playa, praised Garcetti and Bonin for their attention to airport-related issues. “I was very happy to hear Mayor Garcetti share views

“I’ve been consistent in my belief that the runway does not have to be moved.” — Mayor Eric Garcetti constructing a transportation hub near the airport that would include a people-mover conveyance. During his mayoral bid, Garcetti promised to increase accountability among city bureaucrats and after taking office embarked on a “Back-to-Basics” tour that included an August stop in Venice. “I have asked each department head to submit memos outlining their specific goals,” Garcetti,

that were consistent with his campaign promises to our community and consistent with Councilman Bonin’s opposition to moving the runway to the north,” Hench said. “I was also pleased to hear our councilman and mayor [recognize] that our community is very supporting of modernization of the airport and that [opposition to the runway move] is not nimbyism,” she added.§ gary@argonuatnews.com

Stoner Avenue blowback not constructive

Re: “Protest against charter missed the mark,” letters, Oct. 13 The writers of this hurtful letter claim to be “generally supportive of unions” but make allegations that unions are “whipping up fake controversy … faux protest … protecting pedophiles instead of kids … [using] underhanded tactics to attack fledging charters … [and are engaged in] protest shenanigans.” The personal attacks against area resident José Benitez make me wonder if the writers have met with him to engage in “a little constructive dialogue” for which their letter pleads. The elementary school in my neighborhood has significant drop-off and pick-up safety problems and congestion even without a co-located charter on grounds. I sympathize with those residents who are contending with Stoner Avenue Elementary

This park would not only provide some nature and relief from all the seven-story highrise apartments that will line Via Marina at the future Bar Harbor and Neptune — and have already appeared at The Shores — but also will provide handball and basketball for youth, picnic tables for families, a place for seniors to gather. Please write to Los Angeles City Councilman Mike Bonin to ask for support. With help from Mayor Eric Garcetti, Bonin and others in our community we can secure what the county-amended

School's added congestion and hope for an LAUSD resolution. Walter Renzi Palms

Marina needs more parkland

Marina growth a little off-kilter

Marina del Rey is suffering from not only major construction and overdevelopment but it seems that the look of the new developments are very off-kilter. For example, across from the Cheesecake Factory looks like Legoland. The colors are not symbiotic with the

rest of the “look” of Marina del Rey, and it is sad that no one took the time to make the best of the awful building. It is apparent that the planners of this area also have not thought about the impact all of this growth is having on traffic. At this rate, the area will be unlivable due to perpetual gridlock: Lincoln Boulevard, anyone? How can we work together to make the best of an already very bad trajectory? Mary Hewitt Marina del Rey

The Westside’s Soccer Shots youth sports program teaches teamwork off the field with a planned food drive

By Julia Arciga For the Westside youth sports program Soccer Shots L.A., Thanksgiving generosity is coming early this year — and in a one-ton package. The Playa del Rey-based organization wraps up its first annual Thanksgiving Food Drive on Saturday, an effort benefiting the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. The goal: one-ton of canned food — enough to feed 400 people a hearty meal — and financial donations for meat and fresh produce through the food bank’s website. Soccer Shots has reached out to community charities in the past, including participation in the Westside Food Bank’s annual Hunger Walk and food collections at various Westside schools in October. “We are hoping to make a significant impact,” said Alyssa McGarigal, Soccer Shots’ program and community advancement director. “We also hope to inspire our soccer players to do more for the Los Angeles community, both now and as they grow up.” Soccer Shots teaches the game to kids three to eight years old. In addition to this month’s food drive, coaches and staff will volunteer to assemble grocery packages for low-income seniors, families and children. McGarigal said she hopes the food drive will become an annual event. “We saw an opportunity for a project that can be a learning experience for the children and a chance to give back,” she said. “We also get to introduce the concepts of generosity, empathy, diversity and collaboration … and like the Soccer Shots program, the kids learn by doing.”§ Visit lafoodback.org to participate in the virtual food drive.

For Westchester teacher, a new lease on life

A former student’s mother is donating a kidney to keep Lucy Knight in the classroom

By Gary Walker For years Lucy Knight lived with a condition that she kept secret, even from some of her closest friends. The preschool teacher at Kentwood Avenue Elementary School in Westchester has autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease, a genetic disorder that causes numerous cysts to grow inside the kidneys. Knight, 43, worried she would spend her life hoping for a cure and feared she might end up on dialysis and lose her ability to teach. But it looks like she may now have a second a second lease on life thanks to the generosity of a living donor. Knight, whose illness has resulted in an outpouring of support from the community, has found a match in the mother of a former student — one of several prospective donors who agreed to medical tests earlier this year. If all goes well the kidney transplant will take place in December, she said. “I was speechless and overwhelmed with joy,” Knight said of finding the donor, who declined to be identified in this story. Families and fellow teachers at Kentwood learned of Knight’s condition after a colleague disclosed it at the school last year. Soon after, eight people came forward offering to donate a kidney, but until now none were a match. Meanwhile, Westchester residents and Kentwood students began a series of fundraising efforts to help Knight offset medical-related costs. “Lemonade for Lucy,” in which students raised money selling lemonade outside a local grocery store, and “Bike for Lucy,” in which supporters found sponsors for cycling efforts, have raised roughly $2,600 so far. Westchester resident Odysseus Bostick,

a former teacher who ran for a Los Angeles City Council seat earlier this year, cycled 100 miles for the cause after learning his kidney wouldn’t be a match for Knight. “Since I wasn’t accepted as a donor, I thought that I could help her in other ways,” said Bostick, whose children had Knight as a teacher. Knight “is a tremendous asset to our community,” Bostick said. “I’ve gotten to know her through the eyes of my kids and that tells me that she is worth this community effort.” It was during a doctor’s visit 25 years ago that Knight discovered her genetic condition. The renal disease is not necessarily fatal, but can lead to kidney failure, said Dr. S. Adam Ramin, an urologist at Saint John’s Medical Center in Santa Monica. Ramin said about one in 1,000 people suffer from autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease but that not all patients develop the risk for total kidney failure. Knight said she and her husband have chosen not to have children because of the hereditary disease. “I look at my students as my own kids,” she said. Ramin said it is common for patients in similar straits to forego having children, adopt or seek out sperm or egg donors. “It really is a life-changing condition,” the doctor said — adding, however, that Knight has a good chance to lead a full life if her transplant is successful. Knight said she could hardly believe all the support she is receiving from throughout the community. “I’m still so overwhelmed by all of the attention,” the teacher said. “There are no words to describe when someone gives you a second chance at life. I feel so blessed.”§ gary@argonautnews.com.

Neighbors take pot protest to the streets

A group of Mar Vista residents claims medical marijuana dispensary “doesn’t fit” with city regulations prevent the clinic from setting up shop. “The message is pretty loud and clear: The city of Los Angeles, [my] council office and this community are opposed to this dispensary,” Bonin said. Opponents claim the proposed location of the clinic violates provisions of Proposition D, a city ballot measure approved by voters earlier this year that put restrictions on the number of clinics that can operate in the city and where they can operate. The ballot measure, however, does not appear to allow the city to take action against a clinic before it opens, city officials say. The clinic proposal remains under investigation by the city, Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer said. “I’ll be damned if I am gong to let this community be a test case for someone who wants to do damage to our neighborhood and violate the sprit of Proposition D,” Bonin said. Would-be operators seeking permits for a medical marijuana clinic at 3472 S. Centinela Ave. could not be reached for this story.

By Gary Walker Mar Vista residents are taking to the streets in an effort to prevent a medical marijuana dispensary, a common sight in other Westside neighborhoods, from setting up shop in their backyard. More than a dozen people convened Friday for a demonstration in front of the clinic’s prospective location — the highly visible intersection of Centinela Avenue and Palms Boulevard, which over the years has proved an unlucky spot for other small businesses to operate. The corner storefront was most recently a flower shop and before that Mrs. Gooch’s Natural Food Market. Demonstrators said they will return to the location on Fridays for the next several weeks. More than 200 people attended an Oct. 15 community forum about clinic, with most in attendance speaking out against it. Los Angeles City Councilman Mike Bonin, a Mar Vista resident, has pledged to do everything in his power to

trying to place it in the round hole that many Mar Vistans voted for [in Proposition D],” Wallace said. “It just will not fit.”§ gary@argonautnews.com.

Nonprofit sees simple path to academic success Austin Beutner’s Vision to Learn lowers barriers to learning with free eyeglasses for Westchester students Photos by Gary Walker

Optician Sherry Pastor examines the eyes of a Loyola Village Elementary School student in Vision to Learn’s mobile bus

By Gary Walker Christmas came early last week for a number of local schoolchildren in the form of a gift that could alter the course of their academic lives. Vision to Learn, a nonprofit created to distribute free

eyeglasses to children in need, offered no-cost eye exams and distributed more than two dozen pairs of spectacles on Nov. 8 at Loyola Village Elementary School in Westchester. Businessman and philanthropist Austin Beutner, the group’s founder, made a personal

PAGE 10 THE ARGONAUT November 14, 2013

appearance at the school for the occasion. “Instead of forcing families to go where the glasses are — the eye clinic — we bring the glasses to where the kids are,” said Beutner, who previously worked at Los Angeles City Hall as a deputy mayor, jobs czar and head of economic and business policy. Vision to Learn has examined the eyes of some 13,000 students and given away nearly 10,000 pairs of glasses, according to its website. The nonprofit expects to visit Playa del Rey Elementary School in Del Rey and Broadway Avenue and Westminster Avenue elementary schools in Venice before the end of the school year in June. Loyola Village Principal Melinda Goodall said sight troubles hold many students back from doing their best. “This is giving our children access to one of the most essential tools for school, and that is being

able to see,” Goodall said. “There is no question that academic achievement will soar. We’re expecting that their self-esteem will increase.” Vision to Learn has a team of optometrists and opticians who visit schools with high proportions of students from low-income families and conduct exams in a mobile clinic. Dr. Tina Patel, a Vision to Learn optometrist, said she has seen children with a wide range of vision problems, including some associated with older adults. “We have children who have glaucoma or are suspects for glaucoma, which is increased eye pressure,” Patal explained. “One of the young students that we saw [during vision checkups] actually had a cataract, opacity [cloudiness] of the lens inside the eye.” The Westchester Rotary Club is spearheading a local effort to solve vision problems among local students in need.

Rotary member Nora Maclellan, outreach coordinator for Vision to Learn, became involved with the nonprofit in April 2012 at Beutner’s request. Local organizations, including the Drollinger Family Charitable Foundation and Brookfield Residential Properties Inc., have helped fund the Vision to Learn’s efforts. Maclellan, a Playa del Rey resident, says she takes pride in seeing children see clearly. “I see how the lives of the kids will be changed. I see how they smile when they get their new glasses,” she said. Los Angeles City Councilman Mike Bonin assisted Beutner in delivering the glasses to students. The councilman, who recently began sporting new eyewear, assured the children that there was no social stigma to wearing their presents. “It’s cool to wear glasses,” he said.§ gary@argonautnews.com.

John Jake, 47, in the Dec. 3 race for the 54th Assembly District. All three are Democrats. If no candidate wins more than 50% of the vote, a runoff election would be held Feb. 4. Last week county election officials mailed 195,000 sample ballot booklets and 80,000 voteby-mail ballots for the contest. Gov. Jerry Brown called the special election earlier this year after the seat’s previous occupant, Holly Mitchell, won election to the state Senate seat that had previously belonged to Curren Price and, before Price, Mark Ridley-Thomas. Price is now a member of the Los Angeles City Council and Sebastian RidleyThomas works as his education deputy. The political mailer sent out Friday by Armenta’s campaign implied that ballot-box rival Sebastian Ridley-Thomas is getting unethical political assistance in the race from his powerful father. “Nepotism is not democracy,” declares the front of the fourpage mailer, which accuses the supervisor of raising money and endorsements for his son and even bullying other potential candidates out of running. The document goes on to also claim Mark Ridley Thomas had pushed for an ill-timed special election date during Chanukah in an effort to discourage voter participation.

Armenta could not be reached this week to discuss his Assembly campaign or his recent mailer, which earned him a written rebuke from Los Angeles County Democratic Party Chair Eric Baum. In a letter to Armenta, Baum described the mailer as “a less than truthful attack designed to polarize the voters” and admonished him to “stick to issues rather than baseless attacks. Baum further scolded that “as a proud, practicing Jewish-American, just let me say that I don’t appreciate the overtones used to insinuate anyone pushed to have the election scheduled the middle of Chanukah.” Sebastian Ridley-Thomas brushed off the controversy. “I’m running a positive campaign,” Ridley-Thomas said. “I was surprised that [Armenta] decided to make this negative attack.” Ridley-Thomas has every reason to be confident. The first-time political campaigner leads his opponents not only in name recognition but also in resources, according to the most recent campaign finance reports filed with California Secretary of State. As of Nov. 6, Ridley-Thomas had raised more than $584,000 — nearly 10 times as much campaign cash as both of his

rivals combined. Armenta had raised nearly $64,000, including $50,000 of his own money, and Jake, a real estate broker, was bringing up the rear with approximately $6,000. While he has not been able to garner a lot of high profile endorsements, Jake thinks one personal quality will benefit him in the election: “I can relate to people who look like me and who don’t look like me,” he said. While Armenta enjoys support from several current and former Culver City officials, RidleyThomas backers make up a virtual who’s-who list of area business and politics. Ridley-Thomas donors include businessman Austin

Beutner at $4,100, billionaire Eli Broad at $2,500, the Anschutz Entertainment Group at $2,500, businessman Steve Soborof at $2,000, developer Rick Caruso at $1,000, former Los Angeles International Airport Commissioner Alan Rothenberg at $1,000, plus Marina del Rey real estate developers Goldrich & Kest Industries at $5,000 and Heritage Development Corp. at $2,500. Notable public figures who are Ridley-Thomas donors include former Los Angeles City Controller Wendy Greuel at $1,000, Assemblyman Steven Bradford (D- Westchester) at $3,000, Rep. Karen Bass (DCulver City) at $1,000, state

Sen. Majority Leader Darrell Steinberg (D- Sacramento) at $4,100, Assemblyman Chris Holden (D- Pasadena) at $4,100, Assemblyman Reggie JonesSawyer (D- Los Angeles) at $2,000, and former LAUSD board member Cindy Montañez at $2,500. Ridley-Thomas has also received contributions from the Microsoft Corp. Political Action Committee ($3,000), Chevron ($2,500), NBC Universal Media ($2,000), Sony Pictures Entertainment ($2,000), Disney Worldwide Services ($1,500), Monsanto Global Food ($1,300), the California Independent Petroleum Assoc. PAC ($1,000) and Ford Motor Co. ($1,000). Trade unions have contributed tens of thousands of dollars. A frequently discussed topic in the race is hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, which is a controversial technique used to obtain oil and natural gas in areas where the fuels are trapped in rock and sand formations. Both Armenta and Jake have previously said they would pursue a ban on fracking if elected. Ridley-Thomas, who has taken contributions from several energy companies, simply said he would enforce all environmental regulations and laws, but currently there are no laws that rule out fracking. However, Ridley-Thomas also said he sees environmental sustainability efforts in Mar Vista and other parts of the Westside paying off as an economic engine of the future. “I think the 54th Assembly District can be a vehicle for advancing green technology,” he said.§ gary@argonautnews.com

Interview

Finding solace in the universe Santa Monica writer and USC professor K.C. Cole on how science can bring comfort, solve problems and make it easier to find a date As a college student and young newspaper reporter, K.C. Cole was interested in exploring solutions to international human conflict. She didn’t think science would have much to do with her mission — that is, until she met Frank Oppenheimer. Brother of atomic bomb builder Robert Oppenheimer, Frank Oppenheimer left a scientific legacy as founder of the Exploratorium in San Francisco, a museum that delves into confluences of science and art as filtered through human perception. Oppenheimer’s liberating scientific ideas inspired Cole, who had been writing for The New York Times on a variety of topics, to specialize as a science writer. After a stint with Discover magazine, she made a home in Santa Monica and worked for years as a Los Angeles Times science writer. Cole has written eight books, including the memoir/biography “Something Incredibly Wonderful Happens: Frank Oppenheimer and the World He Made Up.” She is currently a professor at USC’s Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, where she teaches journalism classes that emphasize critical and creative thinking. For nine years Cole helped carry on Oppenheimer’s philosophies as a host and organizer of “Categorically Not!” at Santa Monica Art Studios, a discussion series that explored overlapping boundaries of science, art and politics. In keeping with that spirit, Cole will lead a discussion titled “The Consoling Universe” on Saturday at Santa Monica Public Library. The concept — a book in progress in search of a publisher, she said — explores how a better understanding of scientific principles can improve one’s quality of life. — Joe Piasecki

Many people see a sort of cosmic indifference in science. What’s comforting about it? I think knowing a little about science makes you feel more comfortable about chaos and change. Things are always changing. They have to; that’s the very meaning of being alive. It’s also the meaning of time. There can be no time without change. So instead of being freaked out, you can learn to ride things out a bit. It’s not like your life is going along smoothly and every now and then there’s an obstacle. No, the obstacles are part of what’s there. If you’re uncertain about things, that’s natural. That’s the uncertainty principle. So until we make a decision about anything, all the possibilities are up there. You know how sometimes you love somebody and hate somebody at the same time? How do we deal with these

contradictions? Well in quantum theory, that’s built in, that the opposite of a deep truth is also true, as Niels Bohr put it. To me that applies directly to journalism because it tells you the answer you get depends on the question you ask. If you do an experiment that’s looking for particles, you’ll get a particle. If you’re looking for waves you’ll get a wave. Every atom in your body is replaced every seven years, so who are you? What are you? You’re this pattern of stuff that stays constant even though the individual parts are changing, and I just think that’s amazingly cool. It’s like how the arms of a spiral galaxy stay constant but the stars are coming and going all the time. Also we’re as much microbes as we are human cells, so that makes it really hard not to think of the environment as part of us. It’s not like we’re here and

the environment is something out there. We’re all a piece of it. There’s the anthropic principle — the idea the universe is the way it is because if it weren’t we wouldn’t be here to observe it. Because it goes close to religion a lot of astronomers haven’t liked it, but if there’s an infinite number of ways the universe can be, matter can be and energy can be, it’s kind of nice to think you’re here because the whole universe conspired to bring you here, in a way. How much does science factor into human decision-making? My students are always talking about how they can’t find the right guy but they’re really trying hard, and that’s a great example of attention blindness. Attention blindness is what happens when you’re talking on your cell phone and everything else disappears — why it’s so dangerous behind the wheel, more dangerous than being drunk. A psychologist, Dan Simons, showed a video of kids throwing basketballs and you’re supposed to count how many times they pass the balls, but while you’re watching that video a gorilla walks in front and pounds his chest. Half the people don’t even see it because they’re so focused on the basketballs. So I’d say you’re probably so focused on what you’re looking for in a partner that you’re not even seeing most of what’s around you. It’s hard to question free will because it’s such a lovely illusion, but certainly most of the science suggests we get our feelings first and then we make up a story to justify them. So that’s kind of relaxing, too, because you don’t have to take bad moods, bad things, too seriously. Memory is a huge one, too. I used to argue with people about what happened: who did what, who said what. The fact is our memories are extremely bad; everybody records their unique version of what they heard or saw, then it percolates and gets screwed up with other stuff, and then when you recall it

Every atom in your body is replaced every seven years, so who are you? ... You’re this pattern of stuff that stays constant even though the individual parts are changing, and I just think that’s amazingly cool. — K.C. Cole [the memory] gets distorted yet again. So I don’t ever have those arguments anymore. You recently wrote that game theory could help people work out problems. How? A major problem we’re having, in our economy too, is people think there are winners and losers, and if you’re not a winner you’re a loser. There’s such a thing as the least-worst option, where both parties are relatively happy, that you can get to from game theory. In terms of evolution, we’ve been given this not-entire truth of survival of the fittest — that the most aggressive, cutthroat,

competitive things survive. Well that’s part of the story, but a big part is also that things cooperate and make the best of what’s there. If rich people get absolutely everything and no one else is left with anything there won’t be anybody left to buy their products, fight their wars or teach their kids. The idea of compromise is essential, but we’ve been sold on winner-takeall. K.C. Cole speaks on “The Consoling Universe” at 2 p.m. Saturday at the Santa Monica Public Library, 601 Santa Monica Blvd. Call (310) 4588600.

•This Week• ‘Hustle’ and ‘Happiness’ Venice-based actress Elisabeth Röhm is making her mark on Hollywood with ambitious roles in upcoming independent and Hollywood films

Elisabeth Röhm in a scene from David O’ Russell’s highly anticipated “American Hustle”

By Michael Aushenker You could say actress Elisabeth Röhm really is “Finding Happiness.” At 40, the Venice resident and former “Law & Order” cast member is quietly cultivating a substantial movie career that will include a part in the much-anticipated “American Hustle” — director David O. Russell’s followup to the Academy Award-winning “Silver Linings Playbook” — and a starring role in the new independent film “Finding Happiness,” which screens Saturday at Laemmle’s Monica 4-Plex in Santa Monica. Directed by Mar Vista resident Ted Nicolaou, “Finding Happiness” stars Röhm as a journalist interloper in the real-life Ananda commune near Grass Valley in Northern California. Through Röhm’s character, the film explores the community’s method of dealing with “death and dying, gardening, solar

technology, how they sustain,” said Nicolaou. For Röhm, the subject was intriguing. “It interested me people living in a simpler manner,” she said. “These are high-minded people; it wasn’t just a bunch of hippies.” And for Nicolaou, it was in part Röhm’s openness to the experience that made her right for the role. “I sort of made [the film] like a selfportrait of the community and put her in my shoes. I knew nothing about this community. I don’t consider myself a spiritual person, but a magical-thinking former hippie. [Ananda] really challenged my feelings about how I lived my life — about being kind, giving, service. I came away from it more open-minded” Nicolaou said. “Elisabeth is a really smart, very gentle and really dedicated actress (Continued on page 32)

Nuthin’ but a ‘G’ thing Soul singer and “old soul” Alicia G brings originals and classics to Witzend on Saturday night By Michael Aushenker Nearly seven years ago, a 21-yearold Alicia Gutierrez found a mentor in Malcolm Hayes, a convalescing soulsinger living in a Hollywood apartment near Thai Town, who, several generations ago, had been produced by Barry White and Johnny “Guitar” Watson. “I’d clean his house, clean his records,” recalled Gutierrez. And in exchange, Gutierrez said, “he changed my life.” Originally bent on becoming a bard, Gutierrez was totally transformed by her encounters with Hayes, who had toured with Little Richard, opened for Gladys Knight and played the Apollo Theatre before being sidelined by a stroke in his 30s. At 27, the would-be poet Gutierrez now goes by the stage name Alicia G. She will perform Saturday at Witzend in Venice, promising a mix of originals and soul standards by greats like Janis Joplin, Grover Washington Jr. and her biggest idol, Aretha Franklin. Alicia G said she picked up on 1960s

soul music from her parents while growing up in the east San Gabriel Valley. “My dad’s from Mexico. To learn English, he listened to Sam Cooke,” she said. During her youth, sounds that made Billboard’s Hot 100 didn’t leave much of an impression. “I was always an old soul. At 13, I was obsessed with Bob Dylan,” she said. The artist said she has no qualms about performing her timeless, if these days somewhat anachronistic, type of music. “Older people come to my show, but so many younger people are really inspired by it,” she said. Hayes, who resides in a Sherman Oaks nursing home, would no doubt be proud of the performer Ms. Gutierrez, who has already played the House of Blues on the Sunset Strip and Bar Pico, turned out to be. At Witzend, Alicia G. will take the stage with Ambitious Music Consulate, a collective that includes two AfricanAmerican musicians, a 21-year-old

Thanksgiving Activities – Fun

Five actors and five directors stage five 10-minute plays one night a month at Santa Monica Airport By Michael Aushenker Every third Sunday of the month at Santa Monica Airport, Ruskin Group Theatre Company stages “L.A. Café Plays” — five 10-minute vignettes featuring five different actors and five different directors that were brainstormed and work-shopped earlier that very day. Michael R. Myers, the Ruskin Group’s managing director, said the burst of creative energy begins at 9 a.m. at the airport’s Back on Broadway restaurant

(the event’s sponsor), where manila envelopes picked at random decide the cast and crew. The five short plays are written by morning’s end, rehearsed five times during the day, and then presented by evening. Myers might also assign a theme. “Last time, the theme was ‘grand reopening,’ in honor of our government,” he said. Past L.A. Café Plays collaborators have included seasoned actors Dylan McDermott and Ed Asner as well

The patio at Cinco

marveled at the hipness of it all before studying the menu. The offerings here are a mix of standard Mexican fare and Oaxacan food, a cuisine that is fast becoming popular in Los Angeles. Oaxaca is the home of moles — rich and complex sauces that can be based on chocolate, pumpkin seeds and other ingredients not found in more northern parts of Mexico. There are seven different kinds of mole, but even the most authentic restaurants here rarely offer more than two or three because mole is labor-intensive even with modern kitchen tools. Our server recommended that we start with “Tres Pistolas,” which was chips served with three dips: black beans, pico de gallo and queso fundido. This did not get the meal off to a good start. The chips tasted commercial and were served cold, and the accompaniments were uneven. The beans were tasty, pico de gallo ordinary, and the queso fundido a huge disappointment. Queso fundido is traditionally a thick mix of cheeses with chili and chorizo; this was a thin beer-based cheese sauce with bell pepper and

almost no chorizo flavor, inferior in every way to the real thing. It’s strange that a restaurant that charges for baskets of chips doesn’t bother to serve good ones and would charge $8 for such mediocre sides led to very low expectations for the rest of our meal. Thankfully, the rest of our dinner was much better. We had ordered a tlayuda (think of pizza with a thin corn-flour crust and you’re not far off), a dish of pork ribs in green chile sauce, chicken mole and a pair of tamales. Tlayudas are uniquely Oaxacan —a tortilla the size of a dinner plate that is lightly smoked and then baked to crispness and layered with black beans, cabbage, string cheese, tomato and avocado. Several meats are offered as toppings, and we chose carnitas that turned out to be tender and tasty. The pork ribs arrived warm rather than hot, but the flavor was exceptional. The meat was fall-off-the-bone tender and the zingy tomatillo and red chile sauce was exactly right. The dish was served with mild Mexican rice and a bowl of whole red beans, and for me it was the highlight of the meal. But that isn’t to disparage the chicken in black mole. The velvety chocolate-based sauce had just the right heat, and the half-chicken with vegetable-fried rice and pickled chilies was a satisfying meal. One of the two tamales was served Oaxacan-style, wrapped in a banana leaf, while the other had the cornhusk traditional in the rest of Mexico. We chose pork in salsa roja and chicken in what was described as a spicy salsa verde. The tamales were expertly made, the corn masa inside moist, and we all enjoyed the pork. None of us took more than one bite of the chicken because it was easily the hottest tamale we had ever tasted — I couldn’t detect the flavor of the chicken beneath waves of heat.

It’s Miller time at Pacific Resident Theatre Venice stage has extended its run of Arthur Miller’s “A View from the Bridge” By Michael Aushenker Pacific Resident Theatre’s production of Arthur Miller’s “A View from the Bridge” brings together two of the Venice company’s veteran theater artists as co-directors: Marilyn Fox, a longtime artistic director, and Dana Jackson, who joined the company in 2001. The production, underwritten by Cannon Family Foundation, features an ensemble cast of a dozen equity actors headed up by Vince Melocci as the tragic figure Eddie Carbone. The 99-seat equity theater’s mission statement has always favored “lesser known plays by known writers,” Jackson said, so the company bypassed more renowned Miller plays such as “The Crucible” to go down this less-traveled path. Originally staged as a one-act piece at the Coronet Theatre (today, the Eugene O’Neill Theatre) on Broadway, “A View from the Bridge” is a story in two acts and set in an ItalianAmerican household near the Brooklyn Bridge that becomes a hotbed of conflict after an illicit affair. A love triangle

between married longshoreman Eddie and his orphaned niece Catherine spins out of control when Catherine rejects Eddie to become engaged to Eddie’s wife’s cousin, Italian immigrant Rodolpho, and culminates with a crime of passion. “It’s inappropriate because of their relationship and it’s inappropriate because of her innocence,” said Jackson. Jackson said that the critical piece of casting in “A View From the Bridge” came with enlisting Lisa Cirincione to play 17-yearold Italian ingénue Catherine. “The fact that she has fallen in love with Rodolpho becomes a threat to [Eddie] and his passion overtakes his reason,” she said. Miller first staged a one-act version of his play in 1955 but overhauled the piece in 1956, the same year he began a five-year marriage to Marilyn Monroe. Miller had first crafted his play to capture life on the Brooklyn docks in screenplay form for movie director Elia Kazan, but Miller’s screenplay, “The Hook,” was never produced. Kazan instead hired “What Makes Sammy Run?” writer Budd

Schulberg and made the1954 Best Picture Oscar-winner “On The Waterfront.” Luchino Visconti, who had directed a stage version of Miller’s play in Italy, borrowed heavily from the premise of “A View from the Bridge” for his 1960 film “Rocco and His Brothers.” Sidney Lumet directed a 1962 film adaption of Miller’s play starring Maureen Stapleton. Pacific Resident Theatre believes that Miller’s incendiary mid-century meditation on morality and desire has not lost any of its bite since its heyday six decades ago. “We tried to stay as true to the play as possible,” Jackson said. “I hope that people go away with a strong sense of forgiveness and some insight into how complex we really are.” “A View From the Bridge” runs at 8 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays and 3 p.m. Sundays through Nov. 24 at Pacific Resident Theatre, 703 Venice Blvd., Venice. Tickets are $20 to $28. Call (310) 822-8392 or visit pacificresidenttheatre.com.§ Michael@argonautnews.com

I like spicy food, but this was excessive. Cinco has been open for only a few months, and with any new operation there can be glitches in food and service. On the evening we were there the restaurant was just half-full but service was quite slow because only two servers were working the whole large space, with a busser clearing plates and bringing more water when signaled. I hope this understaffing was caused by someone’s unexpected absence rather than

being the usual way things go here, because the servers were overworked even though they were doing their best. Our meal for four, including three cocktails, was $98 and reasonable at the price. There are things that need work here, but Cinco is off to a good start and catering to a customer base that has not previously had a home in the neighborhood. Cinco is open from 3 p.m. to midnight Mondays through Fridays and from 11 a.m. to midnight on Saturdays and Sundays. There’s a parking lot, patio dining, wheelchair access and a full bar.

Photos by Sunny Bak

Sunny Bak prepares for her exhibit at Essentia

As a teen, Sunny Bak would photograph celebrities coming in and out of Broadway shows, as in the above image of Yoko Ono and Andy Warhol

Artist is still ‘licensed to ill’ (Continued from cover)

Hugh Hefner, Yoko Ono and others that Bak captured as a middle-school student stalking celebrities with her dad’s Nikon Rangefinder. In “Sleepwalking Through Dreamland,” a young Hefner pairs incongruously with the wholesome imaged Barbara Benton at New York’s Playboy Club. Taylor, between husbands, is out with then-boyfriend Henry Weinberg. There’s even an inadvertent shot of barrierbreaking dancer and singer Josephine Baker that Bak discovered while sifting through old photo negatives. “When I was 14, I didn’t know who Josephine Baker was,” said Bak, now a fixture of the Westside art scene and a member of Venice Art Crawl’s board of directors. At the time, Bak was hustling for pictures outside Broadway shows and hitching rides from paparazzo Ron Galella, who was famously slapped with a restraining order to keep him

away from Jackie O. “He used to drive me around in his Firebird,” Bak said of Galella. “There were less people [stalking celebrities]. It was mostly men.” So how exactly did Bak’s parents feel about their teen daughter roaming New York at night? “They didn’t really know,” Bak said. “I would say that I was at the library. And I’d be studying and then hustle off to Broadway, later processing the film in my parents’ bathroom.”

Finding beauty among Beasties

In her 20s, Bak befriended a teenage punk rock outfit with a growing cult following and created some of her most lasting images. She met the Beastie Boys on the cusp of their transition to hiphop through Def Jam Records co-founders Rick Rubin and Russell Simmons, with whom

she partied at nightclubs such as Area, Milk Bar and The World. Through Beastie svengali Rubin she became a de facto chronicler of the band, even shooting the gatefold image inside their major-label debut album “Licensed to Ill.” “We went to the site of the 1963 World’s Fair and spent afternoon there. [Rubin] drew in the airplane with the pencil. We had a fun time with the boys,” she recalled. “Once ‘Licensed to Ill’ came out, it blew up! What was really surreal was hearing the music coming out of cars.” Bak captured the shenanigans of Adam “Ad-Rock” Horovitz, Michael “Mike D” Diamond and Adam “MCA” Yauch at that critical time before and after the 1986 debut of “Licensed.” The album, which contained such monster hits as “(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (to Party)” and “No Sleep Till Brooklyn,” broke down racial lines between rock and hip-hop audiences as the first rap album to top Billboard’s pop charts and eventually sold more than 10 million copies. Circa 1986 to1988, Bak’s photos captured this irreverent, cartoony phase of the band’s career as they moved from punk to rap. The video for “Fight for Your Right” was even shot in Bak’s New York apartment. “She was clearly around the band when they were at their most Beastie-est — when they were young and pushing the boundaries of not only their music but their behavior. That’s sort of when they made

Bak captured Jacqueline Onassis reacting to Ron Gallela (out of frame), her paparazzo mentor figure who was barred by a judge from approaching the former first lady

their reputation,” said Steve Appleford, a veteran music journalist and photographer who also chronicled the band. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences featured a portrait of Yauch by Appleford, who has taught at Otis College of Art and Design, during the Academy Awards after Yauch’s death from cancer in May 2011 at age 47. Aura Walker, today a hypnotherapist with a practice in Mar Vista, recalled hanging out with Bak while Walker was a teenager dating Yauch, who was five years her senior. “Sunny Bak was on the scene at the right time. She was very savvy, she had street smarts, and she was very fond of Yauch,” said Walker, who added that the photographer and band had a mutually beneficial professional relationship. Bak moved to Los Angeles around the same time the Beastie Boys changed record labels and came out to L.A., but she and the Beasties would soon part ways. Bak recalled throwing a barbecue at her mother’s new home near Museum Row during which the Beasties — “The three of them were so frickin’ loud!” Bak said — incurred the wrath of the local homeowner’s association. But Diamond, Horovitz and Yauch were already finding other social circles that involved more drug use. Bak, meanwhile, was able to parlay her connections with Rubin to photograph members of Slayer and Danzig for

albums he produced on his Def American label and expanded her professional catalogue. “I did a lot of celebrity portraiture: Gregory Peck, Luke Perry. I was very busy,” Bak said.

‘One of the guys’ At the height of the Beastie Boys’ early notoriety, the band was increasingly vilified for their notorious on-stage antics, pouring honey on groupies and homophobic lyrics and slurs. The band had proposed “Don’t Be a Faggot!” as the original title for “Licensed to Ill.” Although she was a gay woman, Bak said she had no problem reconciling the homophobic aspect of the Beasties’ public persona. “They didn’t treat me with any disrespect whatsoever. I was one of the guys,” Bak said. “Everybody was acting like a stupid idiot. Those were things that just sort of happened,” she said. Offstage, Yauch and Bak had more meaningful conversations. “He was always asking me about Buddhism because I’m a Buddhist,” Bak recalled. Yauch later converted to Buddhism and became and a staunch advocate for the Free Tibet movement. In 1993, Bak photographed a controversial Newsweek cover that depicted a loving young female couple under the headline “Lesbians.” Bak laughs now at how “controversial” this cover was,

tame as it is by today’s standards. The social climate “has changed a lot,” she said. “At that time, we never thought we’d have the right to get married.” In 2010, Bak had considered shooting a spoof of the band’s “Fight for Your Right” video in support of gay marriage and had received Yauch’s blessing. Yauch later spoofed the1987 video in 2010 for the first single of the last album the Beastie Boys released. “Sleepwalking Through Dreamland” may be about looking backward, but it also represents Bak moving forward by collaborating with artists such as Susan Tibbles, who, for a decade, was represented by the recently shuttered Patricia Correa Gallery at Bergamot Station. Tibbles, a multimedia artist, was already

working on two other exhibits when the opportunity to work with Bak “fell into our lap,” she said. “I’m about the same age as Sunny, so we share the same sense of popular culture and Hollywood glamour. I can imagine her running around back in those days as a teen, taking these shots,” Tibbles said. “I was like, ‘Just do it!’ Deadlines are what we live on.” “Sleepwalking Through Dreamland” — featuring Sunny Bak, Susan Tibbles, Andrea Tan and Mark Satterlee — opens with a pajama party reception from 6 to 10 p.m. Saturday at Essentia Sleep Shop and Gallery Space, 2430 Main St., Santa Monica. The exhibit continues through Dec. 14. Call (310) 612-2222 or visit sunnybak.com.§ Michael@argonautnews.com

who likes to enjoy herself. She basically embraced her experience at Ananda and really lived there while we [did the film],” he continued. Initially, “Finding Happiness” was imagined as a documentary until producer Roberto Bessi suggested a central character — Juliette, Röhm’s fictional

journalist — whose evolution viewers could follow through the film. Röhm came to Nicolaou’s attention through a casting director who had learned meditation from Röhm’s late mother, Lisa Loverde. Nicolaou met the actress at Venice Grind, a local

coffeehouse. “This was going to be a spiritual journey,” Nicolaou said. “It was obvious she could play skeptical [reporter] Juliette but also be so open to the people of Ananda.” A seasoned television actress, Röhm already had experience on daytime soap operas such as “One Life to Live” and had played on “Law & Order,” “Heroes,” and “The Mentalist.” As part of the “Law & Order” cast, she was nominated in 2001 and 2003 for the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series. Also no stranger to the kind of attention celebrity brings, Röhm landed on Maxim magazine’s “Hot 100” list in 2002. But “Finding Happiness” presented a different kind of challenge. Interacting with Ananda residents, “There was a lot of improvising,” Röhm said. “It’s certainly not like a traditional acting job.” Röhm made residents of the self-sustaining community “feel calm and comfortable,” Nicolaou said. The upcoming “American Hustle” — which reunites Russell with Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence as well as Christian Bale, star of Russell’s

It’s an artistic community that remains pure.” In trying to capture a pure essence of the Ananda community, Nicolaou stressed that he was careful not to impose any judgment or bias on the community but to let moviegoers decide for themselves. “I tried to stay out of the way,” he said. “Once you meet the people of Ananda, you are disarmed and you don’t want to mock them. They are earnest, and they’ve kept at it for 50 years.” As it was for Röhm, the film was also a departure for Nicolaou, who previously shot low-budget vampire movies in Transylvania, children’s fantasy films and bonus-feature documentaries for Disney DVDs. “Finding Happiness” is “not an infomercial, but an honest portrait of the people of the community,” he said. “If you’re listening to what the people are saying, it’s fascinating.” A special screening of “Finding Happiness” takes place at 7:30 p.m. at Laemmle’s Monica 4-Plex, 1332 2nd St., Santa Monica. A Q&A session with Röhm and Nicolaou will follow the screening. § Michael@argonautnews.com

Röhm starred in “Law & Order” and "Heroes"

2010 film “The Fighter” — is the next milestone in the Germanborn actress’s transition to the silver screen. Röhm said she can hardly wait for the film’s December release. “It was the most spontaneous and crafted dynamic experience of my career,” Röhm said. “[Russell’s] a certifiable genius,” she continued. “He’s compassionate and touches a very deep cord in our human experience. He really gets to a heart of family.” Röhm shot “American Hustle” in Boston but said her heart remains in Venice. “It reminds me of the best of a lot of different worlds,” she said. “It’s eclectic: Dogtown, Abbot Kinney, the canals, suburbia — the transition happening like

LAX Coastal Chamber honors business leaders Public safety summit planned, Playa del Rey Toy Drive warms up, foundation supports Healthy Start and Lions roar at wellness event By Geoff Maleman The LAX Coastal Area Chamber of Commerce celebrated the achievements of innovative Los Angeles-area leaders at its annual City of Angels Awards gala on Nov. 5 at the Los Angeles Airport Marriott Hotel. I was there as emcee. Honorees included Liam Collins, head of YouTube Space LA; Javier Cano, former head of the Airport Marriott and now general manager of the JW Marriott Hotel at LA LIVE; Los Angeles City Councilman Mitchell Englander; Coca-Cola; and Boeing. Real estate brokers Brookfield Residential honored Gail Goldstein, regional director of leasing at the Equity Office, with the 2013 Spirit Leadership Award for community Westchester, Playa del Rey and Playa Vista. She has shown exemplary involvement in the community, largely through her leadership efforts with the Playa Venice Sunrise Rotary Club and extensive involvement with the Los Angeles Realtors Association. The award included a $5,000 prize for the charity of Goldstein’s choosing, and she selected the Playa Venice Sunrise Rotary Foundation, which helps fund a variety of that club’s community service projects.

SAFETY SUMMIT

On Saturday, the LAX Coastal Chamber is partnering with the Los Angeles Police Department’s Pacific Division, the Neighborhood Council of Westchester/Playa, and the LAPD Pacific Area Boosters to host a public safety summit from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Masonic Lodge, 7726 W. Manchester Ave., Playa del Rey. This event gives us the chance to meet the Pacific Division’s Capt. Brian Johnson and other top police officials. The event is free, and children are invited to attend. Music, face painting and other activities will be available for all to enjoy. For more information, please call (310) 6455151.

The annual Playa del Rey Toy Drive for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and the Animal Shelter Drive benefitting the SPCA-LA pet adoption centers will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 7, in Triangle Park, at the intersection of Trask Avenue and Waterview Street in Playa del Rey. Children’s toys should be new and unwrapped. New books or gift certificates from Target or grocery stores will also be accepted. For the animal shelters, clean out your linen closets to bring old towels, blankets and sheets. Shelters also need collars, leashes, pet sweaters, animal crates and unopened pet food as well as unopened cat litter and grooming items. Los Angeles’ animal shelters really need anything that will keep the animals warm and dry while they wait for their new forever homes. Of course, this is also the time to think about

adopting an animal from a local shelter. There is lots of unconditional love waiting for you for nothing more than a small adoption fee. “It’s the 10th year for the Toy Drive, so we’re hoping to celebrate with a raffle for prizes from our local businesses and a silent auction,” said organizer Donna Manders. “It’s a wonderful, generous way to launch the holiday season and a fun visit with neighbors.” To donate time or items for the silent auction, please contact Pam Stacey at pamstacey@ gmail.com. For information regarding the Animal Shelter Drive, please email Manders at djmpdr@gmail.com.

A HEALTHY START FOR HEALTHY START

The William H. Hannon Foundation has renewed its support of the Westchester Healthy Start afterschool tutoring program at Westchester Enriched Sciences Magnets (WESM), formerly Westchester High School. Since 2006, the foundation has provided an annual grant to support the after-school tutoring program. Funding helps ensure the ongoing no-cost to the student tutorial service. “I have witnessed firsthand the ongoing need to provide support services to our students and families within the Westchester community,” said Marvin Cooper, Westchester Healthy Start Coordinator. “For many of our students and families, our Healthy Start programs have been the key to their continued advancement on to college, as well as a needed resource for school staff and administrators alike.” The Healthy Start program began in 1997 to offer academic support services, behavioral counseling to discourage truancy and parenting classes to support the needs of families entering the 9th and 10th grades on the Westchester campus. Afterschool tutoring is currently offered two days a week in the high school library. Students from Loyola Marymount University service organizations as well as members of the National Society of Black Engineers at UCLA provide tutoring support on an individual and group basis. “My late uncle, our foundation’s founder, had his office within walking distance of the WESM campus. Each year, he enjoyed participating in the academic jacket presentations to the high school’s top students,” said Kathleen Hannon Aikenhead, president of the William H. Hannon Foundation. “He felt that Westchester’s public high school was an important asset to the community.”

LIONS ROLL OUT FOR VISION

The Venice-Marina-LAX Lions Club recently offered free vision and hearing screenings in the Lions Eyemobile as part of the second annual Community Wellness Fair held Nov. 9 at Marina Del Rey Hospital. The fair was a community and family-oriented event, offering educational information on health, fitness and wellness.§
