“It ain't over 'til it's over,” as Yogi Berra said, but even though some 22,969 mail ballots and ballots delivered to polling places remain to be hand-counted, it's probably over for Measure O. Supporters of the initiative, which would require a study into public ownership of water for a great portion of Monterey County, are looking at the figures and conceding defeat. Public Water Now co-founder George Riley, the driving force behind Measure O, said that he and Ron Cohen, Public Water Now's president, are likely going to close it down soon and will not pursue public water for a while yet. “We made a sizable impact,” he said. “There's a legitimate question on public ownership” he added, and said that there will continue to be a watchdog faction. keeping an eye on California American Water. Andre Charles of the campaign agreed. “As long as Cal-Am continues to mismanage our water and gouge ratepayers, people

Wednesday, June 4, at about 2:15 p.m., a 1997 Lincoln Town Car driven by Bert Mendelsohn of San Diego ran into the Coldwell Banker Real Estate office at 650 Lighthouse Ave. It appears he lost control, jumped the curb, struck a pole and crossed the sidewalk, coming to rest several feet inside the building. The passenger, Lottie Mendelsohn, 93, had minor injuries and was transported to CHOMP as a precaution. Neither Mr. Mendelsohn nor their blind dog, which was in the car, was injured. It is not known when the business will reopen. Monterey Fire, Pacific Grove Police, and an ambulance responded. Photo by Pete Tansill.

Alan Baldridge, Naturalist at Hopkins, Dead at 80

Alan Baldridge, widely known and well-respected in the world of natural history, died May 28 at age 80, with his wife, Sheila Baldridge, at his side. He was a lifelong friend and protector of birds and mammals and a tireless, life-long educator. He served as librarian at Stanford University's Hopkins Marine Station from 1966-74 and, after a brief stint at Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science in Miami, returned to Hopkins in 1978 and worked until his retirement in 1993. His successor at Hopkins, Joe Wible, said “I knew I had very big shoes to fill when I succeeded Alan as librarian at Hopkins Marine Station.” “As a very visible member of the Monterey Peninsula community and through his active role with the Friends of Hopkins support group, Alan played a key role in soliciting funds to finance the building of the Harold A. Miller Library. Alan was also the consummate naturalist specializing in birds and marine mammals. He served as the president of the local Audubon Society, and as program chair of the Monterey Chapter of the American Cetacean Society, he lined up many of the speakers.” Baldridge also authored scientific papers and wrote several books. He was an expert on the identification, ecology, biology and conservation of local marine mammals, seabirds, and land birds. In 1980, he co-authored The Bird Year about the seasonal habitats and ecology of Monterey's birdlife, and then Gray Whales in 1991, a classic, for the Monterey Bay Aquarium. David Shonman described him as the go-to person for any questions about birding or marine mammals, whether from students or the public. Baldridge was born in Darlington, England. He lived through World War II bombings, and graduated with a master's degree in library science. It is told that he courted his wife by taking her for

motorcycle rides to sewage ponds to watch birds. They were married in 1960, moved to the United States in 1962 and settled in Pacific Grove in 1966. Alan took the library position at Hopkins, while Sheila worked in a similar position at Moss Landing Marine Labs. A memorial service will be scheduled at a future date. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests any memorial contributions be made to: The Earl and Ethel Myers Oceanographic & Marine Biology Trust, P.O.

need to stay on top it the issue,” he said. More than 8,000 people signed the petition which put Measure O on the ballot, but turnout of “yes” votes fell a little short of that at 6,827. Some 8,826 voters said “no,” responding to a $2.5 million campaign by Cal Am that figured out to $271 per vote. Measure O had a grassroots war chest of a little more than $96,000, mostly small donations by private parties. Turnout countywide was only 18.78 percent at last count, while turnout in the Water Management District where the vote on Measure O was obviously a big factor was 29.05 percent. In other races, incumbent Sheriff Scott Miller was the overwhelming winner at 42.48 percent in a four-way race, but still fell short of the “50 percent-plus-one” needed to avoid a runoff against the second largest vote winner, Steve Bernal at 31.33 percent.

Many Dog Bites Are Preventable Monterey County SPCA

Animal Chatter According to the Centers for Disease Control, dog bites were the 11th leading cause of nonfatal injury to children ages 1-4, the 9th for ages 5-9, and 10th for ages 10-14 from 2003-2012. A 10-year study of 256 dog bite-related fatalities in the U.S. between the years 2000-2009 recently reported in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association revealed many preventable issues involved, such as lack of an able-bodied person to intervene and dogs kept un-neutered, unsocialized, and isolated. A link to an article on the study is below. The best ways to prevent dog bites are proper socialization and training for your dog, keeping your dog on a non-retractable leash and under your control in public, owners who are aware of strange dogs and dog body language, teaching children how to properly act around dogs, and avoiding uncontrolled situations that would cause anxiety or stress to your dog. Dog owners can help prevent dog bites by having a well-socialized, well-trained dog that is a part of your family. The SPCA for Monterey County helps you make this possible with all our training classes as well as our new Sunday Dog Socials, which are safe and fun alternatives to dog parks. The SPCA also seeks to lower the incidents of dog bites in our community by offering free presentations to school groups about how children can act safely around known and unknown dogs. We also offer high-quality, affordable training classes for shy dogs and dogs who react negatively to other pets while on leash and a free behavior help line SPCA Dog Training classes include Family Dog, Puppy Pre-school, Puppy Kindergarten, Shy Dog, Reactive Rover, Out and About in the Real World, Agility for Fun, Tricks & Games, Fun Sniff and Search, Canine Carnival, and more. Register online or learn more at These low-cost, high-quality classes are made possible by the support of our generous donors. The SPCA Training Center is located at 1002 Monterey-Salinas Highway across from Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and additional classes take place in Pacific Grove. For more information call 831-264-5422 or visit The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) for Monterey County is your nonprofit, independent, donor-supported humane society that has been serving the animals and people of Monterey County since 1905. The SPCA is not a chapter of any other agency and does not have a parent organization. They shelter homeless, neglected and abused pets and livestock, and provide humane education and countless other services to the community. They are the local agency you call to investigate animal cruelty, rescue and rehabilitate injured wildlife, and aid domestic animals in distress.

New initiative in Monterey Bay takes youth away from screens to exercise creativity

“Let’s Make A Book!,” a non profit initiative new to the Monterey Bay area, will host a variety of creative writing workshops for young people this summer.

The organization hopes to expand its scope to include other creative programs in the near future. Some programs that are in the works for the fall and winter include “Let’s Save Water!” and “Let’s Make a Stop-Motion Film!”

Baby blanket lost: Sentimental value

A newly handmade baby blanket was lost recently, which has special value for the owner. “I dropped it while on a long stroller walk in which I covered distance from Hilltop Park to Asilomar, then up Lighthouse to Congress and along the length of Junipero St. I am hoping someone picked it up who reads your paper.

Contractor convicted of residential burglary of tools

Thomas Matulich, age 54 and a resident of Carmel, was found guilty by a jury of residential burglary of a home in Pacific Grove in 2013. Residential burglary is a “strike” under California’s Three Strikes Law. In July of 2012, Matulich contracted with the homeowner to install a fireplace in her home on Sunset Drive in Pacific Grove. Matulich worked on the home over a two week period sporadically. After finishing the job in early August of 2012, the homeowner did not ever see him again. On March 26, 2013, while the homeowner was away, Matulich entered her home and stole power tools that were stored in her garage. When confronted by the police, Matulich stated he went inside to pick up the tools that he had bought from a person named “Jose” who was working on the property. Matulich has prior theft related convictions. He faces up to a maximum of six (6) years in the State Prison. The Honorable Larry E. Hayes who presided over the trial, will sentence Matulich on July 3, 2014. The case was investigated by Yma Garcia of the Pacific Grove Police Department and Greg Johnson of the Carmel Police Department.

School Resource Officer Selected 415 7th Street, Pacific Grove House and Carriage House Private yard Close to town Price: $585,950

Lic. #: 00902236


“Joy’s quiet strength, persistence and care for her clients is legendary on the Monterey Peninsula.”


From the City Newsletter: Officer Yma Garcia has been selected as our new School Resource Officer, for the 14/15 school year. A School Resource Officer (SRO) is a law enforcement officer who is assigned to our elementary school, middle school and high school. The intent behind having a SRO is to prevent juvenile delinquency by promoting positive relations between youth and law enforcement. The SRO position encompasses three major components which allow the SRO to achieve this goal: law enforcement, education, and counseling. These three components allow the SRO to take a proactive approach to law enforcement. SRO’s are not just “cops” on campus. In addition to traditional law enforcement responsibilities on the school campuses, the SRO educates students by teaching classes, and serves as a counsel for students and parents on various topics. The SRO also serves as a role model for our youth, creating a positive experience to bridge the gap between juveniles and law enforcement. Officer Garcia will replace Officer Eva Rasul. Thank you Officer Rasul for your years of service and commitment as our SRO.

Jon Guthrie’s High Hats & Parasols

100 Years Ago in Pacific Grove Main line What is Esperanto? Contributed by Jefta Laudrum*

As well-known as Esperanto is throughout the world, it is still a common, everyday occurrence for someone or another to inquire: “Exactly what is Esperanto?” For the benefit of such inquirers, I will try to give a complete overview. Esperanto is a living, world language designed from several other languages around the world. Dr. L. L. Zamenhoff is the creator of Esperanto. It required several years to build a phonetic vocabulary and the near-perfect language we now call Esperanto. It is hoped that this language will become a “second” language for millions around the world so that people of different nationalities can talk together. Others have been tried and all failed, however, as each language was too difficult to learn and use. Esperanto is different; it is simple to both learn and to use. A test group of more than 40,000 persons have learned Esperanto so that they can use the new tongue daily. Zamenhoff (and I) hope that those thousands will quickly mushroom into millions. How about you? Why not give Esperanto a try?

Wanted: good roads

St. Anselm’s Anglican Church Meets at 375 Lighthouse Ave. Sundays at 9:30 a.m. Fr. Michael Bowhay 831-920-1620

Mr. M. Kraig gave an interesting and forceful talk at the recent assembly of trustees and visitors last week. Kraig’s topic was the needs of the Peninsula, in general, and of Pacific Grove in particular. Kraig said that among things urgent for the grove are a sizable cafeteria, or other eating place, and a large, free-standing apartment complex. He is, however, proud of the opportunities presented by the Grove. Kraig is certain that our community will continue to be a boomer. A Monterey photographer was present and took the floor as a follow-up. The photographer offered to provide large photos of the grove’s bathing beach at a cost of $1.25 each, unframed. He said the council should take charge of having pictures of other local subject matter framed and hung at different locations around town. The next speaker observed that Esperanto activists had formed a club within the Grove, called the club the International Esperanto Association of Pacific Grove, and he wondered how many were making plans to attend the international congress being held in Belgium. He said that he believed 200 to 300 Grovians were active users of Esperanto but, of course, not all could be expected to want to trek to a foreign country for an assembly. At the Chamber of Commerce meeting last night, it was agreed to hold the annual statewide meeting on May 26, next, and a notice to that effect will be mailed to all members A letter was then read from a member to the Chamber. The letter requested that a meeting be called to be held in Hollister to form another “Good Roads” booster organization. It was noted that Monterey, Santa Clara, and Madera Counties already have one or more clubs promoting good roads. Now, these groups are promoting a paved road from Pacific Grove to the San Joaquin Valley. In support thereof, San Benito County has already built a connecting roadway through that county, but has no booster club. Our writer feels that little more can be done locally, and we should “broaden” our horizons. All those who appreciate auto mobiles should be involved.

The ladies of the Civic Club served their annual breakfast at the noon hour yesterday. About 80 members were pressured into acting as assistants and their busy fingers responded by preparing eggs, omelets, pan cakes, grits, coffee, and fresh fruit. The tables, set with bouquets of live flowers, were laid in the main hall of the Civic Club hall. The tables were lovely with their snowy white clothes, the dainty chinaware, and the silver utensils. The entire club was also beautified, with garlands of yellow and white (the color scheme) flowers hanging everywhere. Breakfast offered choices of boiled eggs or omelets, orange a la moyes, whole fruits, grapefruit slices, pancakes, French rolls Winston peas, new potatoes, cress, creamed chicken on toast, ham, almonds, mints, and coffee a la Peil. Mrs. Ella H. Lloyd served as toastmistress and general manager.

Notes from the author …

1 A change in policy. Editor Brown was now accepting contributions written by those other than himself. Jephta Landram appears to be a pen name … which were very popular at the turn of last century. 2 Dr. Zamenhoff, a Jew, believed that a universal of people learning to say such things as Ĉu vi parolas Esperanton? [Do you speak Esperanto?] would lead to world peace. Wrote the doctor about his hometown of Białystok: “In such a [multi-lingual] town a sensitive nature feels more acutely than elsewhere the misery caused by language division.” (Extracted from a letter addressed to Nikolai Borovko.) Stalin learned Esperanto and Hitler banned it. Yes, Esperanto continues to be used. Get on the web to learn more.

The Earl of Halifax Comes to Pacific Grove

John Rapp Press Release; A Book of Fiction WASHINGTON, D.C ..... Eleven days ago, at 2100 hours Greenwich Mean time, NASA employees at Arecibo, Puerto Rico monitored a radio transmission emanating from outside our galaxy. This transmission lasted exactly 18 minutes. Precisely 36 hours after the beginning of the first transmission, we recorded a second transmission. It, too, lasted exactly 18 minutes. Since our receipt of the first radio transmission, we have received a transmission every 36 hours on the same frequency and lasting for precisely 18 minutes. This information was not immediately made public because of the possibility it was caused by random electrical interference. However, we are now absolutely certain the transmissions originated from an intelligent alien life form. We have not yet pinpointed the exact source of the signals. We know they are emanating from Galaxy Theda Five and from one of a cluster of stars as yet

unnamed. Assuming we are correct, the transmissions were originally broadcast approximately 60 million light years ago. When we received the first transmission, our computers in Houston began working to decipher the complex "language." Early this morning, they succeeded. A full copy of the first 18 minute message will soon be released to the public. It appears the transmission was not a distress signal as we originally thought. Nor does it appear to be a calculated attempt to find other intelligent life forms . In fact the transmissions seem to be some sort of entertainment, the exact form of which we will probably never know. In any event, after traveling 60 million light years through the vacuum of space, these radio signals contain the first words received by the human race from an intelligent alien life form. What are these words that will live forever in our history? As translated by our computers, they are: "First, a message from our sponsor."

Howard Burnham will enthrall us all with his characterization of ‘the Holy Fox’ - Edward Linley Wood, 1st Earl of Halifax. “He is one of the most fascinating forgotten politicians of the 20th century - the Viceroy of India who first had dealings with Gandhi, the only British cabinet minister to meet Hitler, the man who ‘stepped aside’ for Winston Churchill in 1940, British Minister and Ambassador to Washington 1941-6 (where, after an appalling start, he proved highly successful), a noted high churchman (hence his nickname of ‘the Holy Fox’) and a keen hunter-horseman (despite having no left hand!),” said Burnham. “I hope to reestablish him as an interesting and entertaining personality.” In Burnham’s program, ‘Lord Halifax’ says farewell to the Washington Press Corps in 1946, and reviews his extraordinary life and what Churchill called “Halifax’s grave and vital mission” to America during WWII. The event is set for Saturday, June 14, at The Little House in Jewel Park, at 5:30 p.m. Admission is $10.

The Value of The Bridge By Moe Ammar, Chamber President

Five years ago, former City Manager Gary Bales asked me if the Chamber needed help with the 4th of July celebration at Caledonia Park. I told Gary that I always need help! The more help I have, the better the event turns out. There are so many tasks that need to be done -- this, that and the other, not to mention  washing all those pots and pans after a barbecue! Gary said there was a new all-male ministry in town that was looking for ways to perform community service. On July 4, 2009, I met Michael Casey and his crew of volunteers from the ministry. They arrived at Caledonia Park dressed in black, well-groomed and sporting lots of tattoos. He introduced himself as the program manager of The Bridge Restoration Ministry. At first, I was a little apprehensive, but I quickly got to know Michael and the wonderful men at the ministry. They are all proud of their program, which is based on faith, family, and the community. I could easily tell that they were eager and happy to help. For the first time in 13 years, I was relaxed at the 4th of July barbecue  because I could rely on the men from the ministry. They made me feel like I was in good hands. Since 2009, Michael and his men have volunteered at countless community events, among them Good Old Days

and Feast of Lanterns. Their impact has gone far beyond their primary mission of  restoring the lives of drug and alcohol addicts. The ministry has saved the City of Pacific Grove thousands of dollars during the annual  special events. For example, in the past, it took 21 City employees to help stage the Holiday Parade of Lights. With the help of the ministry, that number is now down to six. Meanwhile, the ministry itself and its programs have grown at a rapid pace. The number of men in the ministry has quadrupled, the ministry's Bridge to Bridge Bike Ride is huge, and its Second Chance Store is booming under Michelle Casey's leadership. Without the help of the great men at The Bridge Restoration Ministry, the Chamber would not be able to produce high-quality community events and adopt the Holman Highway (Route 68). Thank you to Michael and Michelle Casey for bringing your ministry to Pacific Grove. The Bridge ministry is located at 105 Central Ave. in Pacific Grove, or at P.O. Box 113 in Pacific Grove. They can be reached on the Internet at, or by phone at 831-372-2033. Their hours are Mon., Wed., and Sat. 9-5; Tues., Thurs. and Fri. 10-6. They are closed on Sunday.

Can You Learn From Your Mistakes? Have you made any mistakes in your life? Are you still judging yourself for the mistake you made last year, 2 years ago, 5 years ago, 10 years ago? Are you also judging others for the mistakes they have made last year, 2 years ago, 5 years ago, 10 years ago? We are raised in a very judgmental culture: “Once a mistake, always a mistake.” Growing up, you have learned very young that mistakes are bad, that you should not be making any mistakes, and you will be punished if you make a mistake. Imagine the tension that this conditioning has created in you, your mind, your body, your nervous system as the innocent child that you were back then. As that child you didn’t have choice but to believe what you were told by the grown ups, the “authorities” in your life. Remember going home from school after an important test, not knowing whether you are going to get a good grade or a bad grade? You knew your mom, your dad were going to ask how the test went. The tension in your body, the fear, insecurity, doubt you had to repress and couldn’t share with them. And at times, when you did get a bad grade, going home with the fear of getting judged, getting punished for it. Having to hold back your true feelings, pretend to be okay. How sad... You are raised in a culture that believes in “You are what you do. You do something bad, you are bad. You do something good, you are good.” which is a lie. All our lives we have been told this lie, which has created deep tension

Rabia Erduman

Self discovery about making a mistake. The truth is that mistakes are natural. As human beings, we very likely will make mistakes when learning something new. Imagine you are raised in the United States, and as a teenager have learned how to drive. Then, one day, you find yourself in a car in London, England. Obviously you don’t know how to drive on the opposite side of the road. It is natural that it will take you some time to learn this new skill, and that you will make some mistakes along the way. When we realize we made a mistake, apologizing is the key. A simple and clear “I’m sorry” clears the air between you and the person or people involved. Look at your life. Find any mistakes you have made that included other people in your life. Chose one situation, imagine that person in front of you. Then, simply apologize for the mistake you have made. Like; “I was 30 minutes late to our appointment and didn’t let you know. I’m sorry.” No excuses needed. This simple apology is an acknowledgment that you both are equal adults, having equal rights, and you made a mistake. How about the other way - when your friend was late and didn’t contact you? Same procedure. Imagine looking at

your friend and say; “You were late to our appointment, and didn’t contact me. This was a mistake. I forgive you.” As a child we got trained to take things personally. When someone made a mistake that affected us, we learned to believe that we aren’t good enough, we don’t deserve good things. As an adult today, step into the knowing that you are lovable, good enough, you have equal rights with all adults, and mistakes happen. That your friend in our example was late had nothing to do with you. She/he got stuck in his/her trauma pattern from childhood conditioning and made a mistake by not letting you know. You both are equally good enough and lovable. You are not supposed to be perfect. Perfection does not exist, is not a natural state. Mistakes do happen. Realize now that it is natural for you to make mistakes. Give yourself permission love yourself and to learn from your mistakes.

Lilies come mainly from the temperate woodlands of the Northern Hemisphere; they do not like dry heat.They are usually found growing near other plants that shade their roots and keep the bulbs cool and moist. The flowers, seeds and bulbs have all been used as food. The bulbs were the primarily element used by Native American People. Lilium bulbs have a strong bitter, peppery flavour. Native Peoples used wood lily roots to make medicinal teas that were taken to treat stomach disorders, coughs, tuberculosis, fevers, and help women in labour deliver the afterbirth. The same teas were also used as a wash for swellings, bruises, wounds and sores. A concoction of this plant combined with sweet viburnum roots was used to treat irregular menstruation. Lily roots in combination with blackberry roots, raspberries, and staghorn sumac were used to treat coughs, fevers, and consumption. Lily bulbs were dried, mashed with stink bugs, powdered and used against witchcraft. A decoction of the roots was taken by a wife as an emetic and used as a wash if her husband was unfaithful.

Pacific Grove And The Pitcher Is Going, Going, Gone!

By Brianna Harris

Going to college for any type of sport for any division is hard, but getting into a D1 school for baseball especially from Pacific Grove? Even harder! Senior pitcher Chris Clements has made this possible, and will be attending University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) in the fall of 2014 for baseball. “I am excited that baseball is going to be more of a career rather than just school and baseball,” Chris claims. “Right now it seems like I just go to school, and then I play baseball for fun.”

Although offered by many other D1 schools such as Long Beach State, Santa Clara University, and Loyala Marymount, Chris believes that UCSB will be the best place to be. “The reason I chose UCSB is because the coaches came a lot to view me, the education is great, the weather is nice, it is a great area, and it is close to home” Chris says. It is amazing that, starting at such a young age, Chris has stuck with baseball his whole life. “When I was 3,” Chris began, “I used to play waffle ball, and my brother played a lot of baseball, so I started to play.” Chris also explains his inspiration behind playing baseball. “My brother is my biggest inspiration for baseball,” Chris explains, “he taught me everything. My brother was hard on me, but that was because he was doing it to make me better.” Chris couldn’t be more excited to be starting his new baseball career at UCSB. It was also interesting to hear why he decided to play in college. Chris replies, “I just love baseball. It is something I would want to do for the rest of my life.” As college is right around the corner it is nice to know that Chris already knows where he is going. Even though one of our main pitchers from Pacific Grove High School (PGHS) will be gone, it is nice to know that he will continue with his passion and eventually hitting his ultimate goal: making it big time.

The Dedication to Swim By Ava Vucina This year, in Pacific Grove, senior Isabel Sweet has dedicated more time and effort to the sport of swimming than ever before. Sweet’s main sport is cheerleading, where she has served as the team’s captain and role model. It was not until junior year that Isabel decided to make a splash in the pool and contribute to the PGHS swim team’s success. Isabel is a strong competitor and is a big asset to the Breakers swim team. Her main races are short distances, or sprints. “I would have to say that the 50 Freestyle is my favorite event. Freestyle is my favorite stroke, and because of my strong edge in sprinting, the shortness of distance in the 50 makes the race enjoyable,” said Isabel. Besides her natural drive, Sweet found that a lot of her motivation to swim derived from the venue. PGHS recently built a brand new pool, which caters to more swimmers. “The pool has ten lanes, which allows for a more competitive environment, one in which fosters diversity,” said Sweet.

Isabel, a two sport athlete in high school, swims for more reasons than one. “I swim for a variety of reasons. Swimming allows me to make new friends, while supporting a school that I love. In addition, swimming provides me the ability to push myself in ways I never thought possible. At the end of a practice, or even meet, I always leave feeling better about myself, knowing that I am doing something good for my body and mind,” Isabel said. Swimming allowed Isabel to gain muscle, lose weight, and feel healthier than ever before. Sweet will not be swimming competitively in college, but after a very successful swim season, she decided that she will swim either recreationally or for an intramural team. “I enjoyed this swim season way more than I expected, and after realizing my passion for the sport, I decided that I will participate in some type of swimming in college,” said Isabel. The dedication Sweet applied to swimming will not only benefit her in college cheer or college classes, but also in her future endeavors in life.

Pacific Grove

Sports Big Sur International Marathon Announces New Registration Plans The popularity of the Big Sur International Marathon, held on the last Sunday each April, has caused race organizers to retool its registration system for the 2015 event and beyond. The “bucket list” marathon sold out in a record 59 minutes last year. “While we were honored by the strong demand last year, it was clear that a single first-come, first-served registration period could be unfair to those who were unable to be online at the right time,” said race director Doug Thurston. “For the 30th Annual Big Sur International Marathon on April 26, 2015, we are offering a new plan which we feel will allow more flexibility for people’s time schedules. “ The marathon is providing four different opportunities for 625 entries each on different days and times followed by a lottery for additional entries. Registration will open on July 15, at 10 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time (PDT). The second period is Saturday, July 19 at 11 a.m. PDT; the third is Wednesday, July 23 at 5 p.m. PDT; and the final period Sunday, July 27 at 4 p.m. PDT. Finally, a small lottery for 500 regular marathon slots will be offered for runners who may not have been successful in obtaining a registration in the four attempts. The lottery will be open between July 29 and August 6, with applicants being notified on August 11. All lottery applicants will pay a small, nonrefundable lottery processing fee. As in previous years, the marathon will accept up to 4,500 entrants who must be able to finish within six hours, a 13:45 minutes per mile pace. Subcategories within the marathon are included in the capped number. These include 400 entries for the Boston 2 Big Sur Challenge, a category that draws qualified Boston Marathon entrants looking for an

enhanced goal of running two marathons on two coasts, six days apart. Registration for B2B will take place in early fall after registration for the 2015 Boston Marathon closes. An additional 300 entries are available for the Runners World Challenge, a category that includes specific marathon training, connection with Runner’s World editors and staff, and VIP experiences at the Big Sur Marathon. For more information and registration for the Runner’s World Challenge, interested parties should visit www.runnersworld. com/challenge. Additional marathon entries are offered to runners wishing to support a cause or include the marathon as part of a tour package. Three hundred entries will be offered at $300 to support the Big Sur Marathon’s youth fitness program, JUST RUN® and a small number of charity entries will also be announced soon. Marathon Tours, a travel package service, will offer Big Sur Marathon registrations packaged with hotel and travel amenities. Individuals signing up for any of the special categories will pay a higher fee than the $150 registration cost, but may sign up anytime beginning July 15 until the slots are filled. The Big Sur International Marathon takes places on California’s scenic Highway 1, along with five additional distance events: a marathon relay, 21-, 10.6- and 9-Milers, and a 5K. Registration of each of these events will open on July 15 at 10 a.m. and will remain open until sold out.  Most entry fees are unchanged from 2014. The Big Sur Marathon website details the new registration procedures and lists prices, individual race details, maps and more. Visit or call 831-625-6226 for more information.

Golf Tips Ben Alexander PGA PGA Teaching Professional, Pacific Grove Golf Links, Bayonet Golf Course PGA Teacher Of The Year, No Cal PGA 831-277-9001

Monday we had the Patriots Day golf tournament at Bayonet Golf Course. Great day. I played in the tournament. The format is a foursome, one PGA Professional, one military and two amateurs. The tournament is under the PGA of Americas Folds of Honor which raises money for the military persons and families. We raise about $15,000 including the dinner and awards. Presentations were in the restaurant after the tournament. I had a great time and thought you would like to know about this big event. I noticed my amateur playing partners when in a tournament environment get out of their regular playing routines. Instead of taking their time to check yardages on the fairways and taking time to read their putts on the green, because they are a little nervous they speed up their routines which they normally do well on their Saturday golf day. If you take a couple of practice swings with your Saturday round, do the same if you get into a local golf tournament. If you read your putts from both sides of the putt, do the same if your in a local tournament. If you stay in your normal routine of play then you will play better. Watch the PGA Tour players on TV; they always keep the same routine.

Both are captured live from Shakespeare’s hometown of Stratford-UponAvon. “Henry IV” Part 1 is the second play in Shakespeare’s series of histories covering the reigns of Richard II, Henry IV and Henry V. Shakespeare muses on the consequences of actions, the role of princes and the realities of wielding power. Richard is dead and Henry Bolingbroke is now King Henry IV. The king is not enjoying his reign. He feels guilty about the removal of Richard and it troubles his conscience. He’d like to go to the Holy Land on crusade to pay penance but there are troubles much nearer to home that need his attention. “Henry IV” Part 2 is the third play in the histories covering the reigns of Richard II, Henry IV and Henry V. In this play Shakespeare explores loyalty, betrayal and growing old. The play begins in the aftermath of the battle in Shrewsbury. In despair at the death of his son Hotspur, the Earl of Northumberland pledges to lend his support to a second rebellion. This uprising is led by Richard Scroop who is the Archbishop of York.

Final Panetta Lecture Series:

Times • Page 15

Presidential Decision-Making Mike Clancy and Katie Shain The fourth and final event in the 2014 Leon Panetta Lecture Series took place Monday June 2 at the Monterey Conference Center, taking on the interesting topic of how presidents make decisions. Four of the biggest names in Washington, David Axelrod, Erskine Bowles, Andrew Card and Kenneth Duberstein, joined Panetta Institute Director and former Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta, to explore this topic. Axelrod is a former Senior Advisor to President Barack Obama, and Bowles, Card and Duberstein served as Chiefs of Staff to Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Ronald Reagan, respectively. And, of course, Secretary Panetta served as Chief of Staff to President Clinton during his first term. This is an impressive amount of Oval Office experience to accumulate on one stage. Panetta Institute Co-Director, Sylvia Panetta, introduced the topic and speakers, providing context for the lecture. She spoke about the theme of this year’s lecture series, “Learning the Lessons of History: Is the Past Prologue to the Future?” and described how this particular lecture fit the theme. Mrs. Panetta also noted the fact that this lecture marks the end of the 17th year of their series, which many have considered to be the best yet. In his opening remarks Secretary Panetta discussed the many roles that Presidents play in our government and reasserted how “the President of the United States sets the tone for the nation.” Then he asked each of the panelists to give their personal assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of each of the Presidents they served. Kenneth Duberstein said that President Reagan’s strengths were that he never forgot why he ran for President, he knew what he wanted to do, he knew how to be bold, and he stayed focused on his goals during all 8 years of his presidency. Reagan’s greatest weakness, according to Duberstein, was that he trusted everybody. Erskine Bowles said President Clinton’s greatest strengths were his intellectual

Poetry What is reality? A triviality. Every tree, every hill, every stream Is probably somebody’s dream That was killed By being fulfilled. Reality, as it seems, Is the cemetery of dreams. That’s how my baby feels, As he rejects his toys and his meals. He fights with his fists Against all that exists He likes the bridge uncrossabe. He likes his dream impossible. And not just at night, but at noon He cries for the moon.

curiosity and ability to distill problems down to a set of facts, as well as his penchant to accept advice of people from all walks of life. Sparking laughter from the audience, both Bowles and Panetta declined to give their opinions on Clinton’s weaknesses. Andrew Card said that President Bush’s greatest strengths were that he was a man of commitment with the courage to make decisions without allowing politics to drive those decisions. Card said that Bush’s greatest weakness was in not letting the American people understand how engaged he was on issues. Finally, David Axelrod said that President Obama’s strengths were his intelligence, thoughtful and deliberative nature, and his willingness to make decisions that he believes are in the best interests of the country, regardless of any political price he might pay. Secretary Panetta then asked the panel members to speak about crises that each of their Presidents had faced. Kenneth Duberstein mentioned the assassination attempt on President Reagan, the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster, and the Reykjavík Summit with President Gorbochev of the Soviet Union. Erskine Bowls recalled President Clinton’s decision to launch an attack aimed at Osama Bin Laden that required flying cruise missiles through Pakistani airspace without their knowledge or approval. Of course Andrew Card, the man who whispered in President Bush’s ear that the second plane had hit the World Trade Center, spoke of 9/11, but he also mentioned Hurricane Katrina. David Axelrod said that there were “many crises to choose from,” but talked at length about the economic crisis that confronted President Obama just as he was taking office. The high regard that each of these Washington dignitaries held for Leon Panetta was obvious throughout the evening. Erskine Bowles, in particular, described how Secretary Panetta mentored him when he served as Panetta’s deputy White House chief of staff during the first Clinton term, preparing him to become chief of staff during Clinton’s second term. Bowles

Both Democrats, Bowles and Axelrod, were “all in” for Hillary Clinton. Both Republicans, Duberstein and Card,

chose Jeb Bush. But finally all of the panelists, along with Secretary Panetta, agreed strongly on one thing: it had been an honor and a privilege to serve a United States President, and to contribute to shaping our country and the world at large. The Panetta Lecture Series can be viewed on television by checking the Panetta Institure website. The schedule is also printed at The 18th series will resume next year.

Understanding Symptoms is Key Dr. Brian Rector

Monterey Peninsula Chiropractic Society If you Google “What do symptoms mean” you will get links to all kinds of sites that will help you figure out what disease process you may have. I want to address symptoms in a broader sense in what they mean to our overall health and what we can learn about them. A symptom is defined as a physical or mental feature that is regarded as indicating a condition of disease, particularly such a feature that is apparent to the patient. Instead of disease, let’s think of it as a state of imbalance. We know that the body is always seeking balance; it just may be that some force has created a state of imbalance and the symptoms we experience are a result of the body adapting to those forces and moving back to a state of balance. For example, if you get infected with the rhinovirus and develop a common cold, you may express common symptoms of coughing, sore throat, runny nose, congestion, sneezing and fever. Other symptoms may include fatigue, headache, muscle aches and loss of appetite. Most

symptoms will resolve in 7-10 days, but some may last 3 weeks or more. Each of these symptoms can be uncomfortable on their own and together can make you down right miserable. However, suppression of any of these symptoms will not resolve the underlying problem and may actually prolong the illness or create other problems. Let’s look at the various symptoms and see what they really mean. Several symptoms including congestion, sore throat and coughing can be lumped together. With a rhinovirus infection, as with any infection, your body is going to create an immune response. In this case that immune response is going to create inflammation and increased mucus production in the respiratory track. The sore throat can be the result of the inflammation and or from coughing. Coughing is a mechanism the body uses to clear the lungs or to prevent things from entering the lungs such as mucus that is running down the back of the throat. Fever is another important component of the immune response and not something that we should generally fear. The rhinovirus becomes less efficient at replicating at temperatures above 91.4

F which is why it tends to stay in the upper respiratory track where moving air cools the tissues. The body knows that elevated temperatures will help to slow down the production and spread of the virus so it creates a fever. If you suppress the fever you make it harder for the body to do its job. We can go on and on with examples, not just with the common cold but with almost any symptom. The key is to understand what is going on with your body, why it is going on, and are you within a safe variation from balance. By understanding your symptoms you will be better  prepared in supporting your body as it adapts to various challenges and you will have a better understanding of when to provide appropriate intervention from the outside in and when to let the body heal itself from the inside out.   Dr. Brian Rector 2511 Garden Rd Ste C100 Monterey CA 93940

When Home is not a House Tom Stevens

Animal Tales and Other Random Thoughts

Otter Views A recent holiday photo safari to Monterey Harbor yielded some nice shots of cormorants nesting, crab boats taking on traps, sailboats riding at anchor. Another subject was a cluster of weathered, multi-hued dinghies tethered to the municipal dock. “Those have personality,” I said, clicking. “You can tell they’re working boats by the oars and ropes and stuff in the bottom.” “What sort of work?” “They probably ferry the people who live on those boats out there,” I pointed. “That would be a Bohemian sort of life.” The dinghies reminded me that, alongside the workaday world where people live in houses and apartments, there exists another, sometimes precarious, world whose denizens live where they will. I first became aware of this alternate world in 1976, when I fell out of a marriage and landed at Gecko Mecca, a sprawling hippie house in a coastal rain forest. Among the characters who rotated through the property were a photographer who lived in his wood shop, a playwright who lived in his gazebo, and a yoga couple who lived in a tree. I met the yoga couple on my first day at Gecko Mecca, and they forever changed my assumption that people were supposed to wear clothing and live indoors. I was walking toward the house along a sandy forest path when I heard a series of explosive, chuffing blasts, like a locomotive leaving a station. As the back yard came into view, I beheld a magnificent, unclad, Edenic-looking couple posed on all fours side by side, inhaling and exhaling great “fire breaths” of air with a fierce Dionysian joy. Amazed, I sought out the playwright in his gazebo. “The couple in the yard,” I said. “Do they rent a room here too?” “No, they don’t live indoors,” he said. “They have a platform in the trees.” Even before hippie times, tree dwellers had a long and illustrious history, but they were not alone in the alternate housing cohort I call “the adapters.” Like hermit crabs, adapters can conform to nearly any dwelling space. I’ve known people who lived quite happily in trees, caves, yurts, teepees, tack sheds, camper vans and Matson containers. And, of course, on boats in and out of harbors. While these situations confer a sort of frontier idealism, most adapters eventually weary of mildew and mosquitoes and long for homes of their own. For those without trust funds, the time-honored route has been to buy what realtors call “raw land” and then slowly, lovingly, painstakingly erect a house. This is when adapters enter the second alternative housing cohort and become “recyclers.” As resourceful as bower birds, the recyclers fan out over the landscape daily, seeking materials, furnishings and building supplies others have discarded or overlooked. I knew friends who salvaged the hardwood timbers from a dismantled sawmill ramp to build two homes and a sculpture studio. Another group used hand tools to dismantle a World War Two barracks, recovering enough finish-grade lumber to build a jungle village replete with its own pyramid. Such recycling feats are legion in places where big construction projects, second home remodels and hotel décor renewals create a virtual Mississippi of surplus materials and furnishings. In those regions, every useful discard finds a willing recycler and a new home. Recyclers hereabouts have the Last Chance base yard and resale store at the county landfill site. Recyclers who stay at it long enough to complete their own homes may then join the most elite cohort, the “converters.” These are landowners who had just enough money to finish the house, but not enough to build the mother-in-law unit whose monthly rental pays the mortgage. Enter: the water tank. Empty water tank, I mean. Fitted out with sash windows and Dutch doors, mineralcured, antique hardwood water tanks can become rental units as charming as Hobbit houses. Other conversions I’ve seen include refurbished farm buildings, drydocked boats, retired school buses, old wine vats, even circus trailers. My favorite was an old train caboose that became a quaint rental. One town in Napa Valley has a motel made entirely from railroad cars. The progression from adapter to recycler to converter is not an easy one, and it’s not for everybody. When the fire breath yoga man finally moved out of his tree house, friends hoped he might “settle down” and live in a house. Instead, he settled down in a cave on a mountainside. He fitted this out as comfortably as a Pasha’s tent, with cushions, carpets, couches, tapestries, even wi-fi. He held court there for many happy years. Another Bohemian cave-dweller came to a tragic end. I met Smitty when we were both training for a marathon, and I could tell right away he was different. He ran the 26 miles barefoot, with the letters to “Jesus Loves” taped on his toes. Smitty followed a fruitarian diet, fasted regularly, and lived in a remote shoreline cave he had found at the base of a cliff. Alas, one stormy night the rain-soaked cliff sheered away, and Smitty was killed in the rockslide. The alternative life offers unique rewards, but it can also be precarious.

Sotheby’s Real Estate

Summer has not officially commenced. The summer solstice heralds the beginning of the season in the Northern Hemisphere on June 21 at 3:51 a.m. our time. The timing of the solstice depends on when the sun reaches its farthest point north of the equator. The word is from the Latin solstitimn, (from sol (sun) and stitium (to stop), reflecting the fact that the sun appears to stop at this time. Now that you are well educated I will continue with my thoughts. We had an unofficial visit from our older daughter, Ellen, and grandson, William, age 10, who drove up from Van Nuys. The occasion was a sad one; the memorial service of Doc (Galyn) Hammond, whose daughter, Denise is married to son Jay. It was Memorial Day weekend and neither had obligations for Monday; Ellen work and Will his last week of school for the summer. It was a lovely visit and gave us an opportunity to see the extended Hammond family as well as our own including our grandsons, Justin with bride Megan, and Spencer. We had an early brunch at Toasties and later attended the service. I expected the typical ruminations from friends and relatives, but what we got instead was a tour-de-force, a remarkable performance by Doc himself. He spoke of his early history in the broadcasting and advertising industries, and deep love of music including symphonic (a stint with the first Monterey Symphony Orchestra), faithful involvement and attendance at the Jazz Festival, and folk music. I sat there enraptured. Years ago Doc had recorded his eulogy and who better to do it than the person who knew him the best. Then I sat up in shock when a tune was played and sung by Bud and Travis, his favorite folk duo. In all of the years I had known him we had never discussed such things. I would have told him that eons ago Travis Edmonson was a great friend of mine; in fact I had quite a crush on him. He grew up in Nogales, Arizona, one hundred miles south of Tucson, my home. We didn’t meet until we went to a church camp in Prescott, and I was hooked. We were in junior high school…Travis had played the role of “Curly” in the TV Show “Our Gang” when he was 5 and began his singing career at 7 in his church choir. I went off to boarding school but returned for my junior year at Tucson Senior High (I finished that grade and my senior in one year and moved to the University of Arizona). I saw Travis in high school and later in college. He was handsome with dark curly hair and a big smile. He played the guitar and took a strong interest in Native American tribes, including the Pascua Yaqui Tribe, helping to produce a Spanish-Yaqui dictionary. In 1948 the tribe made him an honorary member and he lived briefly on an Apache Reservation. While he did not graduate from UofA, he became locally famous for serenading college girls and met his first wife there. He joined the United States Army, after which he began his musical career in San Francisco. In 1958 he formed Bud and Travis with Bud Dashiell. It is said that he was considered a folk music pioneer and influenced such groups as the Kingston Trio. Sadly he suffered a stroke in 1982, experienced ongoing health problems and died in 2009. He was inducted into The Hall of Fame by the Tucson Area Music Awards in 1995. I was at the Hungry i one night with friends, enjoying the free admittance with a pitcher of beer. Acts were introduced and suddenly there he was, my love of more than 15 years earlier. Bud and Travis folk singers. It was MY Travis. They played folk music infused with the influence of Mexican styles, particular mariachi. I couldn’t believe it and wonder why it was that I had no idea he had become so famous. We met for a drink later and I recall dimly that his wife might have been with him…He hadn’t really changed, still handsome, with the brown curly hair and wonderful smile. Now he and Doc are playing music together in the bandstand in Heaven.

Left: Travis age 16 The end of summer welcomes the third annual Fiesta del Perro, a celebration of dogs. This is a gift to the city of Pacific Grove, to tell the world that we are a dog loving town. There are canines all over our little city. They visit shops that welcome them, and many pull their owners into The Treasure Shop as treats are always provided. Will Bullas, the famous animal artist, has kindly provided a painting for the poster and serves on the committee (he was made an honorary PG Rotarian some years ago) The event will be held on September 27 at Robert Down School, from 11:00 until 3:00. Sponsors to date include Rabo Bank, Cedar Street Times, Coastal Canine Magazine, Carmel Holistic Vet Clinic, Pacific Vet Specialists; we hope you will join these underwriters, for, while this is not a fund raiser as such, we hope to raise some funds for Pacific Grove Rotary projects, Animal Friends Rescue Project and Peace of Mind Dog Rescue.

Scene 41: Alice’s Mother Wants A Divorce Bernard Furman

Marriage Can Be Funny Harry and Alice Wilson are seated in the living room of their Pacific Grove home. Alice: My mother will be here in a little while. Harry: That’s unusual—a Saturday morning visit. What’s the occasion? A: She called about an hour ago to ask if I’d be home and if so, could she come to see me. H: About what?

Then, she began calling your father to come help her with one thing or another--- to get something from a shelf that was too high for her to reach, or tighten the screw on a drawer handle, and so on. They thought they were fooling me, but they weren’t. I suspected they were having an affair, and now I have proof of it! A: What proof are you talking about? E: I was going through some of your father’s clothes this morning before taking them to the cleaner, and in a pocket in his blue blazer found a receipt from Tiffany’s in the Carmel mall, for something that cost more than $3,000! A: What was it? E: I don’t know. It was the credit card receipt, not the store’s, so there’s no description of what was bought---but it must have been jewelry for that price, which is more than he ever spent on me, that two-timing rat! I’m going to throw him out and divorce him, and take him for everything he’s got! (She starts crying again.) A: Calm down, Mom, you’re making a mountain out of a molehill.

A: I don’t know, but she was obviously very upset about something. H: I have some office work to do in the den, so I’ll go there now in order that you and your mother can have some privacy. Harry leaves the room. A short while later, the doorbell rings. Alice goes out to answer it, and returns with her mother, Evelyn. Alice: You sounded distressed when you called to ask if you could come see me, mother. Is something wrong?

E: How can you say that? I have the proof! A: If you’ll stop crying long enough for me to explain, I will. (Evelyn stops crying.) A: Do you remember that time when you were taking some of Dad’s shirts to the laundry years ago, and noticed what you thought was lipstick on the collar of one of them? E: Vaguely.

Evelyn: Oh Alice, I’m so glad you were home! I didn’t know who else to turn to. (She starts sobbing.)

A: You called him at his office and berated him and called him all sorts of terrible names----and the stain turned out to be dye that had run onto the collar from a pink tie Dad had worn on a hot, humid day. Remember now?

A: Stop crying, Mom, please—and tell me what happened.

E: Yes, I do.

E: I’m ashamed to even talk about it. (Cries harder.)

A: Well, it’s the same sort of thing. You’ve let your imagination run away with you.

A: About what, Mom? Talk to me.

E: But what about the receipt?

E: About your father! The old fool has been cheating on me! (Sobs)

A: Don’t you and Dad have a special occasion coming up soon? E: Yes—our 50th anniversary next month, if I let him live that long.

A: When? With whom? E: It started when that widow, Jennie Sachs, moved into our building about six months ago. She’d show up to borrow a cup of sugar, or return the sugar----all kinds of reasons.

A: Well, the receipt was for something that Dad bought for you for that occasion! E: For me? How can you know that? A: Because I was with him when he bought it, and helped him select it. E: Expensive jewelry for me? What is it? A: I’m not going to spoil the surprise by telling you---but it’s for you!
