LJES students proud to be Americans

F

or the past 10 years — ever since 9/11 — La Jolla Elementary School students have gathered each Friday to say the Pledge of Allegiance and sing a patriotic song together. Each week a different class leads the song. On Sept. 9, the first Friday pledge was canceled when school was out because of the blackout. So on Sept. 16, they did it for the first time this year and included a moment of silence after Principal Donna Tripi said a few words about those who lost their lives and those who responded during the tragedy. The fifth graders led the song, “I’m Proud to be an American.”

Windemere board holds skateboard line But eases rules on rollerskates, scooters By Dave SchwaB daves@lajollalight.com Windemere residents divided for weeks over a new homeowners board rule restricting skateboarders have agreed to meet in the middle. At the Windemere HOA Board meeting last week all parties — including children — got to air their views, culminating in movement on both sides. Those caught riding skateboards outside one designated area still face a $50 fine, under the rule approved unanimously by the five-member association board.

Ex-bookkeeper pleads not guilty Four headed to prison to thefts from Jack’s restaurant for La Jolla robbery

SELLING THE COAST

By Kelly Wheeler City News Service A Loma Portal woman accused of stealing more than $3 million from a Jack’s La Jolla nightclub and restaurant where she worked as bookkeeper pleaded not guilty Sept. 16 to grand theft and embezzlement charges. Tara Virginia Moore, 39, faces more than 10 years in prison if convicted. She was arrested Sept. 14 after police served a search warrant at her Plumosa Drive home, according to SDPD economic-crimes Lt. James Filley. In her home, where she lives with her Navy-physician husband and her two young children, detectives seized more than $400,000 worth of antiques, furniture, paintings, exotic Italian silk curtains and other items allegedly bought with the embezzled funds, Filley said. Most of the missing money remains unaccounted for, according to Filley. Judge David Szumowski reduced Moore’s bail from $2.5 million to $400,000. A bail review was to be held on Sep. 21 and a preliminary hearing on Oct. 3.

Pfingst said Moore and Berkley had an agreement that called for her someday taking over the business. The defense attorney submitted a signed agreement between Berkley and Moore in which Berkley acknowledged that money paid to Moore in partial repayment of her loans was authorized. Pfingst also submitted statements from witnesses at the business who said it was well-known that Moore was supporting Jack’s from life insurance proceeds she received after her husband died. Pfingst said Moore lost more than $2 million of her own money. Mitchell disagreed. “It’s our contention that the money she was `loaning’ was actually money that she had misappropriated from Jack’s in the first place,’’ the prosecutor said. Mitchell said Moore’s relationship with Berkley dates back to the mid1990s in other businesses that he was involved with and she was an employee. She is also charged with embezzling money from a second business.

Moore — who filed for bankruptcy in 2009 — was identified as a suspect in the case during a year-long investigation into the extensive monetary losses at Jack’s La Jolla, a high-end restaurant-bar that closed two years ago ``as a direct result of this theft,’’ Filley said. The alleged fraud came to light when the owner of Jack’s, Bill Berkley, hired a forensic accountant to examine the restaurant’s financial records dating back to 2003. The matter was then turned over to police, said Deputy District Attorney Bill Mitchell. Moore worked for the Girard Avenue nightclub for about four years, beginning in 2005. The business closed in August 2009 and more than 100 employees lost their jobs, Mitchell said. Moore’s attorney, Paul Pfingst, said Moore was actually loaning some of her own money to help keep Jack’s afloat. The attorney said police only counted the money that came out of Jack’s and were unaware of the millions of dollars lent to the business by Moore.

1237 INSPIRATION · INQUIRE Tropical 1 acre estate with pool and spa

By Kelly Wheeler City News Service Four San Bernardino men who took part in an armed robbery last year at the La Jolla home of food writer Jeanne Jones were sentenced on Sept. 16 to prison terms ranging from 14 to 45 years. Thomas Walter Clark, 42, Aaron Jacob Espinoza, 24, Hector Guerra, 31, and Miguel Ocegueda, 24, pleaded guilty in July to robbery, assault and false imprisonment charges. Clark, who has a prior 1996 robbery conviction, received the stiffest term — 45 years. Espinoza and Guerra each were sentenced to 26 years and four months behind bars, and Ocegueda was sentenced to 14 years and four months. During the sentencing hearing, a sheriff’s deputy snatched a candy wrapper from one of the four, prompting Judge Michael Smyth to apologize to the victims for the ``smirking and idiocy’’ of the defendants. Deputy District Attorney

C.J. Mody said Clark, Espinoza and Guerra entered Jones’ La Jolla Scenic Drive home about 6:30 p.m. last Nov. 5 armed with two semiautomatic handguns. Ocegueda did not enter the home but drove the getaway car, the prosecutor said. A housekeeper opened the door to Guerra, who was holding a single rose and announced he had a flower delivery for Jones, the prosecutor said. Mody said the defendant repeatedly punched the woman in the face, knocked her to the ground and bound her with zip-ties. Three assailants then ran upstairs to a bedroom, where Jones, her husband, a nurse and a safe were located, Mody said. Jones, who was in bed after undergoing a medical procedure to prepare for knee surgery, was forced at gunpoint to open the safe while her husband and her nurse were restrained, the prosecutor said.

Bird Rock school set for a year of memories

Dave Schwab daves@lajollalight.com Sixty years ago, Bird Rock Elementary School students and staff gathered for a photo at the unfinished school building. This year, the photo will be recreated as part of the yearlong commemoration of the school’s opening. Joe Trotter who was in that first school picture in 1951 and still lives in Bird Rock is looking forward to the celebration. Trotter, whose family lived in the 5800 block of Beaumont Avenue, remembers that “in those days it was less dangerous to walk or ride bikes to school” and that Bird

Rock “was a lot less developed and less crowded.” He recalls when the hills now filled with homes were home to only chaparral. Then, he said, you could hike in to see trap-door spiders “that you hardly see anymore.” Bird Rock Elementary kindergarten teacher Lorene LaCava, part of a group organizing the efforts, said they are planning “to take the same photo in front of the building (that was taken) exactly 60 years ago.” As another part of the celebration, Bird Rock resident Jane Wheeler will create a mosaic bench for the school funded by

sales of more than 550 copies of Bird Rock Community Council’s community cookbook that’s filled with residents’ favorite recipes. “It’s being created to honor the staff who dedicated their careers to our school,” said LaCava. It will include the names of all 19 principals and teachers “who retired after spending at least 10 years teaching the children of this neighborhood.” LaCava said other events marking the an-

niversary will include a community birthday party, that’s a work in progress. LaCava said the school is reaching out to the community for the commemoration. “We’re creating a birthday book with wishes, stories and fond memories,” she said. “It’s a way for people to touch the future by talking about what they’ve experienced here in the past.” If you want to be included, e-mail LaCava at llacava@sandi.net.

According to the police report, a man, who’d left his wallet in the restaurant about 11:30 a.m., returned a couple of hours later and discovered a large amount of money missing from it. A busboy had found the wallet at a table and handed it over to the hostess for safekeeping, who put it away in a drawer. Police were reviewing video taken inside the restaurant in investigating the theft. • A store employee reported two bottles of Johnnie Walker whiskey were stolen from a private, locked storage room in the Ralphs Supermarket at 8657 Via La Jolla about 9:45 p.m. on Sept. 14. The employee said a prying tool had been used to gain access to a locked storage room containing alcohol in an employees-only section of the store.

Lifeguard crews rescue injured kayaker rescue crews discuss the situation on monday night.

Fire and lifeguard crews with the aid of a helicopter on Monday evening rescued a 53-year-old male kayaker with an injured back who’d been spotted on the rocks south of La Jolla Shores. “It happened at 5:15 p.m. at Devil’s Slide over by the Clam,” said Lifeguard John Bahl on Tuesday morning. “He fell out of his kayak, or hit the reef, and sustained some injuries.” Because of the extent of his injuries, and being at the bottom of a cliff, Bahl said lifeguards on the scene “opted to get him out with a helicopter.” Bahl said it took about a half hour to airlift the victim off the rocks. He was taken to Sharp Memorial Hospital for further treatment. No other information was available.

University House rehab builds on past BY DAVE SCHWAB daves@lajollalight.com Renewing UCSD’s University House will be a special task for an extraordinary structure in an exquisite location. “For more than 9,000 years, people have wanted to live on this site: The coastal view is just breathtaking,” said project architect Ione Stiegler. The historical home, which she called “an excellent example of pueblo revival architecture” with 2-foot-thick adobe walls which make it naturally cool in hot weather and warm in cool,” is located on a sanctified Kumeyaay cemetery. She said efforts have been made to ensure the work is to be done in “a respectful manner.” Once consigned to the wrecking ball, the house built in 1952 is to be resurrected instead. Bluff stabilization, the first phase of the $10.5 million rehabilitation project, begins in late September. Noting UCSD has worked hard to “listen to the community,” Courtney Coyle, a La Jolla attorney representing Native Americans, said the rehabilitation project can end up being “a model project of

collaboration between community stakeholders,” adding the university has “thought creatively on how to avoid additional disturbance to the soils — a key issue.” The construction plan calls for not disturbing or removing any sensitive plant species, with most of the excavation and construction done by hand to minimize impacts to cultural resources. Native Americans will monitor the work. While satisfied with the rehabilitation plan, Coyle said tribes still have some concerns with the project’s environmental impact report. “They (university) still refuse to admit that digging in a sanctified cemetery is a significant impact,” she said. “They concluded that it was less than significant. We hope the university can revisit that. Admitting those impacts is a pathway to really achieving trust with our local tribal people.” Brian Gregory, an assistant UCSD vice chancellor who chairs the 10-member advisory group for the University House Rehabilitation Project, said the first part of the work “will be putting a pier-supported retaining wall in the bluff to support the slope, which is continually being eroded.”

Water and roof damage are shown in this undated photo of University House, where rehab work is set to start this month. COURTESY UCSD

The goal, he added, is “to finish it in December prior to any storms or rains.” Stiegler said analysis has determined the primary cause of bluff failure is due to misdirected site and roof drainage, which “is going to be redirected to save the cliffs.” Once the bluff work is done, the entire house will get seismic alterations and all new electrical and plumbing. That should begin in January or March 2011 and likely be done by spring or summer

2013, Gregory said. The historic home was built by noted Santa Fe, N.M.-based architect William Lumpkins for prominent early La Jolla developer William Black, for whom Black’s Beach is named. The 130-acre site at 9360 La Jolla Farms Road was bought by the UC system in 1967 for $2.7 million to fulfill a UC policy requiring university leaders live on or within four miles of campus. It was closed in June 2004 due to structural deficiencies and code STE

compliance problems and has been unoccupied since. In July 2004, a University committee studying alternatives for University House recommended it be demolished and rebuilt. But the resultant public outcry by historians, preservationists and Native Americans caused the university to rethink its position. In July 2011, UC Regents certified the environmental impact report (EIR), and approved the design and budget for the project.

Vote stalls sidewalk cafe plan at Hennessey’s Tavern Hennessey’s Tavern owners got mixed signals last week on plans to add four tables outside their restaurant. “We had the sign-off from the city and the unanimous go-ahead from the (Planned District Ordinance Committee) the night before and were jazzed about bringing some life down to this end of Herschel,” said a surprised Damian Gulak, the general contactor. He was talking about a decision by the Development Permit Review panel that sends the Irishthemed restaurant-bar back to the drawing board for a 180-square-foot sidewalk café within the public right-of-way at 7811 Herschel Ave. Architect Paul Benton, DPR committee chair, and committee member Laura DuCharme Conboy, also an architect, said they didn’t like the restaurant’s plan to break up the sidewalk with the addition. “For the last 15 years I’ve been walking up and down this street framed with trees on the one side and it’s just charming, and putting tables right there where you would have to walk around them would take away from that charm,” DuCharme Conboy said. “I wish you would preserve the straightaway and put the tables on the other side (of the sidewalk near the curb).” After the meeting Gulak said honoring the DPR

Chabad of La Jolla Shores opens new learning center Chabad of La Jolla Shores inaugurated its new adult Jewish learning center at 909 Prospect St. with a mezuzah placing ceremony on Sept. 13. A mezuzah is a scroll inscribed with Biblical passages placed on doorposts as a spiritual dedication. The new learning center houses the “Sinai Circle,” home to an array of classes, lectures and seminars. The center will present authentic, traditional Judaism teachings and be open for regular services, community celebrations and ongoing events. “The long-term dream is to have the center’s doors open seven days a week, every hour of the day, so that anyone can get enlightenment from the authentic sources of the Torah and the Kabbalah to fill their yearning for meaning, purpose or direction,” said Rabbi Baruch Ezagui of Chabad. He said the new learning center is unrelated to a previous Chabad proposal to tear down an existing singlefamily home at 2466 Hidden Valley

Committee’s request would be problematic. “The owner doesn’t want to go that route — too much liability with pedestrians crossing the walkway attendants have to cross to serve patrons,” he said. “Our plans are to keep an 8-foot clear path.” Noting there are other restaurant sidewalk cafes with far less than 8 feet of clear path from building to curb, Gulak said, “The battle is not over.” They are prepared to appeal to the City Council if necessary, he added. In other action: ■ Jersey Mike’s sub shop, which is remodeling the spot at 7836 Herschel Avenue formerly occupied by a toy store, was told the by PDO Committee its project constitutes a change of use. As a result, the will need to provide additional parking spaces based on their total square footage, and that those spaces must be part of a long-term shared parking agreement, not a short-term lease with a parking provider. ■ Island Architects presented revised plans to the PDO for a proposed mixed-use development with retail on the bottom and condos on top in the vacant corner lot at 7401 La Jolla Boulevard. But committee members tabled a vote until applicants return in October with more detailed plan drawings.

Road and replace it with a three-level facility to include an 11,666-squarefoot rabbi’s residence on the upper level, a 96-seat religious sanctuary, and a small pre-school on the ground floor. “That is on hold,” said Ezagui.

Initially the board wanted skateboarders — and those on roller skates and scooters — to move to an often-crowded parking lot near the tennis courts. The prohibition in effect since Sept. 2 is being enforced by security guards on golf carts. Its implementation caused several Windemere residents with children, such as Dawn Villela, to protest. She gathered along with 25 to 30 kids and parents Aug. 27 in front of her neighborhood — one of La Jolla’s first gated communities built in the ‘70s with 146 detached homes and 157 townhomes — to start a movement to recall the new skateboarding rule. “It is not a family-friendly community, and this new rule highlights the continual harassment directed at Windemere residents with children from a board that is primarily comprised of retired, senior citizens and individuals without children,” resident Dawn Villela said in an e-mail to the Light. Following the HOA Board’s compromise proposal Sept. 15, Villela said, “I would prefer to have the kids in front of my house for all activities, but if skateboarding is the ‘only’ item being restricted, and they are providing an acceptable designated area where they can skateboard, I can live with that.” Though not built or marketed strictly as an over-55 development, the majority of Windemere occupants are childless. Reliable estimates indicate the percentage of families there with young children to be about 15 percent most of the year, increasing to 40 percent during

The HOA Board laid out its rationale for restricting skateboard use in a letter sent recently to Windemere residents. “Skateboarding has been on our agenda many times for various reasons, most notably safety,” the board letter stated. “The HOA would be more liable for a lawsuit if an accident were to happen and the Board had not publicly taken steps to address this situation with rules for children’s safety. … Skateboarding down our streets have presented many close calls and we have to take these measures to make sure our children, and all of our residents, are as safe as possible and very important for all which is the HOA Board’s legal obligation to all our residents. … All of us on the board deliberated for months knowing this was not going to be a popular decision.”

Neither Windemere HOA’s president, the other four boardmembers nor the development’s manager responded to repeated calls and e-mails from the Light before or after the Sept. 15 HOA Board meeting. Windemere mom Lisa Alexander said the “organized protest” of the new HOA anti-skateboarding rule has been “empowering both to the parents and to the children,” noting she didn’t realize there was so much public support for “kid’s rights.” Villela contends that the way circulation in Windemere is set up — a long winding road (Caminito Blythefield which turns into Caminito Merion) runs throughout the development with numerous cul-desacs branching off — makes it a perfect place for children to play safely in front of their homes. n More photos online at www.lajollalight.com

Staging for Selling Selling your house is like selling a car. There are a lot of cars for sale and a lot of houses for sale too. Today’s car buyers are going to buy the car that meets their needs and that looks the best. The same is true for a house.. Buyers only know what they see, not the way it is going to be. Detail your house like you detail your car when you want to get it sold. Buyers are seeing more evidence of staging on TV, newspapers and magazines. They are expecting homes to show more like model homes. The number of homes being staged now compared to five years ago has doubled. Staging is all about presentation. Home stagers and Realtors work together to get your home sold. The Realtor’s job is to get the property correctly priced, do the marketing to get it sold and guide it through escrow. The home stager merchandises the property so that the marketing pays off. Home stagers often work with your furnishings but may also add some of their special items to give your home the extra touch needed in this tough selling market. Ninety three percent of buyers today look at property on the Internet first so that they can create a list of “must see” listings. In other words, the photo posted of your home on the Internet must sizzle to get the buyer’s attention. First impressions... good or bad... are made in the blink of an eye.

Veterans enjoy surfing at Shores

POW monument dedicated at Miramar Cemetery By ElizaBEth MariE hiMchaK anD city nEws sErvicE About 350 people attended the dedication on Friday of a 15-foot-tall bronze, concrete and stainless steel monument to prisoners of war at the Miramar National Cemetery in honor of National POW/MIA Recognition Day. ``The Liberation Moment’’ statue was sponsored by the San Diego chapter of American Ex-Prisoners of War, which was created in 1942 by the mothers of two POWs as the Bataan Relief Organization. It was created by Poway resident Richard Becker. His goal was to create an image that conveys the emotions POWs feel at the moment they learn they are no longer the enemy’s captives, Becker said in an interview before the dedication. sEE MonuMEnt, a15

ore than 100 injured military veterans were in San Diego County this week to take part in the National Veterans Summer Sports Clinic. The events included sailing, kayaking, cycling and surfing. A few dozen of the veterans braved the surf on Monday at La Jolla Shores, including David Piper, who was visiting from Salt Lake City.

“The summer before last I went water skiing for the first time, but it took me a little time to get used to that rope,” said Piper, who lost his right arm in an industrial accident. “That’s what’s happening here. Each wave I’m feeling something a little different and learning each wave and each time where I’m going wrong and what to do to adjust to each wave.” Phil Dailey Photo

W. Muirlands residents still waiting for drivers to slow down By Kathy Day Staff Writer With a speed limit change to 30 mph on West Muirlands Drive, residents had hoped that they would see police with radar guns more often. But it’s only happened twice, including on Sept. 14 when they met again for their three-month follow up with city representatives. Neighbors along the stretch between Nautilus Street and Fay Avenue say they are concerned about the dangers along their street from speeders and careless drivers who cross the centerline or sideswipe parked cars. They also fear for the safety of bicyclists and skateboarders who must ride in the street be-

cause it does not have a complete sidewalk. One resident said late at night teens are “trying to set speed records — that’s when it’s most dangerous.” The street has also on occasion attracted “lugers” — young people on sleds with wheels, fully dressed as if they were Olympic competitors with helmets, said resident Gina Tapper, who hosted the meeting. They speed downhill and are met by a “pickup car” that returns them to the top of the street so they can race down again. The concerns echoed those at the first meeting in June when they came up with a list of requests for city traffic engineers and

police to consider as ways to slow traffic. Raising the speed limit to 30 mph so it qualified for radar enforcement was the first step. Joel Rizzo, an assistant traffic engineer, told them last week about how effective placing regular radar officers on La Jolla Scenic South Drive on a regular basis was, even though tickets weren’t always issued. The visibility of officers forces “habitual changes in driving patterns,” he said, explaining that it is better for them to be as visible as possible for long distances so drivers slow down rather than be tucked into a driveway or a less visible spot. The average speed on La Jolla

Scenic after a period of regular enforcement dropped to 25 mph, Rizzo noted. He said he would pass along the neighbors’ requests for stepped-up radar patrols and higher visibility, particularly in the early evenings and weekend late-night hours. Also in the works are restriping of the street that would narrow the travel lanes to 10 feet, down from the current 12 feet. That, he said, will require a petition from the neighborhood supported by 75 percent of the residents. Once that’s in, the matter will be presented to the La Jolla Traffic & Transportation Board, which must give a thumbs-up before the city can move forward.

Residents also asked Rizzo to see about getting “School Zone” speed signs posted at the lower end of the hill by Fay Avenue and repeated their requests for several other possible options, including a fourway stop, crosswalk or signal light at Fay. Rizzo promised to do everything he could to move things forward and to keep residents up to date on progress. As those at the meeting left, they stood in front of Tapper’s house, watching as a steady stream of cars rolled by. At the top of the hill, turning onto Nautilus, nine cars were backed up at the stop light — supporting residents complaints about the volume of cars using their street.

LJ architect series continues with Rob Wellington Quigley Rob Wellington Quigley, whose projects include the proposed downtown San Diego Library, San Diego Children’s Museum and UCSD’s Students Services Center, will talk about how architecture can shape our lives in a presentation at 7 p.m. tonight at Wisteria Cottage, 780 Prospect St. Quigley, the eighth of 10 speakers in La Jolla Historical Society’s Contemporary Architects Making History series, earned his architectural degree at University of Utah in 1969. He served in the Peace Corps and was stationed in Chile.

While there he gained firsthand experience designing affordable housing, which led him to become an early proponent of sustainable design producing solar houses in the early ‘80s. His most recent architectural efforts involve sustainable design for civic and academic projects. The final two speakers in the series at Wisteria Cottage will be Laura DuCharme Conboy on Oct. 27 and James Alcorn Dec. 15. For more information visit www.robquigley.com or www. lajollahistory.org.

UCSD, SDSU researchers part of earthquake team City News Service Thanks to a $4.6 million taxpayer-funded grant, researchers from UCSD and San Diego State are part of a team to be led by a UC Riverside geophysics professor on a project focused on earthquake dynamics to determine when and where the next big one might hit. The five-year National Science Foundation grant will support efforts to create enhanced fault system models that graphically represent the ground shaking associated with damaging quakes. From monument, A14 He consulted photographs of POWs, books and used two models. “(Local) POWs were pushing me to make it more skeletal and thinner, but I tried to strike a balance by not making (the man) too horribly scary and skeletal,” he said. “Most survivors went through starvation and horrible things, but I did not want to push that too far. “It is a cemetery (so present is) war and death,” he said. “I wanted to capture their service … (and) uplifting moment when they realized they were free.” Seals at the base of the statue represent all five armed services. ``Visitors to the cemetery who see this monument will realize the sacrifice that American soldiers made to keep freedom alive around the world,’’ Ralph Kling, the vice commander of the POW chapter, said at the dedication.``They’ll remember that the veterans buried here at Miramar gave their all, and we’re fortunate to be able to recognize them.’’ The organization’s commander, 93-year-old Frank Burger, presented the monument to museum officials during the dedication

ceremony. Burger was a POW for eight months after his B-24 bomber was shot down over Hungary in World War II. He said when he came to San Diego in 1984, there already was talk about a new local military cemetery. ``I thought how nice it would be to honor all prisoners of war with a statue in the cemetery, because I remember how I felt when I was liberated on May 1, 1945,’’ Burger said. Becker called it “an honor and challenge to convey what these veterans went through,” he said, adding the monument represents all POWs in past, current and future wars. Becker, a research and development engineer at Hewlett-Packard in Rancho Bernardo, said he began sculpting in 1996 when he and wife, Jennie, took a sculpting class when living in Barcelona, Spain, to work for HP. Now, he simultaneously pursues two careers — engineering at HP and sculpting at his home studio. His commissions for private and public entities include cities of Poway and National City, and Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.

Shores surfers pitch in for wheelchair fund Members of the La Jolla Shores Surfing Association are working to raise funds to help with repairs on the beach wheelchair that is available for use at the Shores. Lorraine Schmalenberger, president of the club, said since the chairs cost $3,500 it seemed more feasible to raise funds for repairs. The recently repaired chair was returned to the lifeguards recently after being out of service since July. Repairs are made by city crews in the “mow shop,” according to Kathy Aceves of the Parks and Recreation Department.

Recently Aceves learned that a grant from the Disabled Services Council and efforts of three city councilmembers may allow for purchasing additional chairs so it’s possible the Shores might get a second one. To donate to the Surfing Association’s effort, mail a check to Wheel Chair Fund c/o La Jolla Shores Surfing Association, 8070 La Jolla Shores Dr. PMB #446, La Jolla 92037.

Merchants gearing up for election, activities Ten people are vying for seats on the La Jolla Village Merchants Association Board, which will hold its first general meeting on Oct. 12. At that time, ballots will be counted while a regular meeting is conducted — if 50 members show up and constitute a quorum. If they don’t, the bylaws have a builtin mechanism to continue the ballot counting while holding a board meeting, President Phil Coller explained last week. The group consists of nearly 1,250 businesses in a 30-block area around the Village. Each pays a fee to the business improvement district with its business license fee. The LJVMA contracts with the city to run the district. The candidates, who will fill five threeyear terms and one seat that became open when Bryan King of Karl Strauss resigned, are: incumbents Claudette Berwin, Gallery Properties; Kate Brainard, Pharmaca Integrative Pharmacy; Leon Chow, C&H Photo; Glidia Holland, Glidia Salon; and newcomers Debbie Newell, Adelaide’s; James Niebling, Esteban Interiors; Anthony Scoma, La Jolla Pediatric Dentistry, and Patrick Tira, Tira Law APC. Meanwhile, the board and a core of volunteers have been pressing ahead with a number of projects that were outlined at the

Sept. 14 meeting and with a strategic plan that defines its organizational structure. The group has adopted the Main Street USA model, which splits into four divisions, including economic development, promotions, organization and design. Some of the projects underway are: • Partnering with the La Jolla Historical Society to coordinate events around the Classic Car Show on April 1 that would benefit merchant, perhaps by having some of the events along Girard Avenue or other areas; • Working with local real estate brokers to get vacancies filled and inform prospective tenants about community design and parking standards and processes; • Exploring a pressure-washing co-op that would enable merchants to join in on regular sidewalk cleanings; • A holiday window decorating contest for merchants, being coordinated by James Neibling of Esteban Interiors; • Evaluating options for holiday lighting that could be expanded to the pedestrian overcrossing near The Children’s School; • Reviewing the street banner program, including options for a “Shop Local” banner campaign; • Finding a new contractor for the hanging baskets throughout the Village;

n Question: Walking and/or jogging along the bluff-top dirt path at the foot of Westbourne Street has become increasingly dangerous this summer. The city has allowed the ice plant to grow unchecked and it is encroaching on the pathways. … Some time ago, a few local residents took it upon themselves to begin trimming the ice plant to restore the pathways.

payers, can we demand that the city either do the maintenance themselves or give volunteers permission to do it? n Answer: Erin Demorest, aide to Councilwoman Sherri Lightner, tells

us that Dan Daneri of the Parks and Recreation Department checked out the spot on Monday and confirmed that they can trim back the ice plant along the path. She added in an email: “By design, the path meanders away from the street with the ice plant in between the street and the path in order to keep people separated from the street. (They don’t want people walking along the curb between the ice plant and the street, so they won’t be trimming back the ice plant in the area seen in the photo.)”

Be sure to report thefts, even small ones

la Jolla town council introduces charity poker night

Kathleen Vannoy-Pineda La Jolla resident I (recently had) an interesting conversation with a very nice member of the San Diego Police Department regarding reports I made of theft of property from my two cars which were parked in front of my house … There was no sign of forced entry and I thought how could I have been foolish enough to leave both of my cars unlocked? After all, my husband and I moved here two years ago from New York City and we’re very security minded. The officer said that thieves have electronic devices that capture the signal sent from a remote key lock — the “clicker” that goes “bweep bweep” (my words, not his) — and then they come back

and use their gadget to open cars and take things. My husband remembered seeing someone he didn’t recognize sitting across the street in a pick up and thought it was strange. When I mentioned this to the officer, he said we were probably being cased and if we ever see that type of thing again, to call 911 and it will probably get high priority. So the thief took a GPS from each car and also some phone chargers and a pair of sunglasses. Not enough for us to make an insurance claim but I wanted to report it though so the police would know. The officer said they think many people don’t report theft if they aren’t going to file a claim and that it’s very important to make this kind of report. Also, it’s easy to submit the report online.

Ask

High-speed rail a billion-dollar boondoggle On Aug. 25, Lynn Schenk wrote an opinion in support of high-speed rail in California. Unfortunately the promise of high-speed rail does not match the reality. This nice sounding concept will be a multibilliondollar boondoggle that will not address California economic or transportation needs. Highspeed rail fails on a number of critical fronts. First, no mention is made that such a system will not be able to pay for itself. That is referred to as “fare box recovery.” The fact is that except for rare exceptions in extremely densely populated areas in parts of Europe or Japan, high-speed rail requires ongoing subsidies to support it. In California this will be a very significant annual cost the taxpayers must fund. Second, the estimated $42 billion price tag is likely to be grossly inadequate. Land acquisition, lawsuits; community review, etc., are likely to push this considerably higher. Third, high-speed rail will

not alleviate traffic problems. The system is envisioned to first connect L.A .to San Francisco. That will not help San Diego. … Some decade later the plan is to connect San Diego to L.A. via Menifee. Yes, Menifee, north of Temecula. Or more accurately, San Diego to Menifee to Anaheim to LA. That certainly will not alleviate traffic on the I-5/805/405. Finally, the estimated 100,000 construction jobs it will create are jobs funded by tax dollars that will not produce economically sustainable results for the state. In short, we are looking to solve tomorrow’s problems with yesterday’s solutions that have proven ineffective. If the goal of high-speed rail is to promote better transit between L.A., San Diego and San Francisco we should consider the far less costly option of buses in already existing high occupancy vehicle lanes (diamond lanes). If the idea is to promote less use of gasoline, let’s finally invest in research into alternate fuels like bio diesel from algae or electricity from wind and solar. That could really create new high paying sustainable jobs that would en-

rules are rules for a reason So how blatant can you get? As one who is intimately familiar with the operations of the Community Planning Association, the bylaws, and what is proper and improper. The stark contrast between the review and processing of the Whitney project and the Spindrift project makes me wonder if some individuals have lost sight of their mission as representatives. You do not put your personal or professional interests above the interests of the organization you represent. Negotiations with applicants outside the framework of the open public hearings is prohibited.

OBITUARIES

Roberta R. Allen 1915 – 2011

The communities of Midland, Michigan, and La Jolla, California, have suffered a great loss with the passing of Roberta R. Allen, a bright and generous spirit known to her friends as “Bobbe.” She leaves a legacy of dedicated service to the arts, education and the field of nutrition, doing so with her own blend of inspired determination and optimism. She will be missed as a loving mother, friend, and benefactor of so very many. Roberta Ritter was born in 1915 in Plainfield, New Jersey, and graduated in 1936 from Cedar Crest College in Allentown, Pennsylvania. In 1940 she married August “Augie” H. Baum and they were blessed in 1943 with a son, Dale. The family moved to Midland in the early 1950s. Augie Baum met a tragic early death in 1954. After marrying William “Bill” W. Allen in 1958, Roberta managed an enlarged household with two stepchildren, Gail and Jim Allen, and still found the energy for devoted hospital volunteer work with the “Yellow Ladies” and starting an organization called Triskelions, consisting of women from Bay City, Saginaw and Midland to raise money for a new college which later became Saginaw Valley State University. Triskelions Scholarships assisted hundreds of SVSU students and today still provide financial help on the basis of merit and achievement. Bobbe Allen was recently honored by the Midland County Historical Society as an extraordinary woman who made a difference in the lives of others through her volunteer work in the Midland community. In 1978 Bobbe and her husband purchased a house in La Jolla and for over twenty years commuted between Michigan and California. After the death of her husband in 1987, she threw herself into working for the Social Services League of La Jolla. Enjoying using her organizational skills, she set

out to pay off the mortgages on the League House and Darlington House. She also was a member of the La Jolla Country Club and a supporting member of St. Germaine Children’s Charity. Bobbe Allen came to her support of the arts honestly, performing as a leading actress in the early productions of the Midland Theater Guild, acting as treasurer of the organization and serving on the original board of the fledgling Midland Center for the Arts. She established an early showing of fine art in the Midland Community Center, served throughout the years as chairperson of the Midland Arts Council, and helped to build MATRIX:MIDLAND into a regional showcase. Saginaw Valley State University, Cedar Crest College and Northwood University honored her with honorary degrees for her endowments, scholarships, nutritional grants, and trustee work. Over 185 young girls have graduated from her alma mater, Cedar Crest, as beneficiaries of endowments from Bobbe and Bill Allen, as have countless graduate and undergraduate students at the University of Wisconsin La Crosse, Texas A&M University and Northwood University. She has received a Distinguished Woman award from Northwood, as well as the Chancellor’s Award from the University of Wisconsin La Crosse. In her role as chair of the Allen Foundation, Inc., she negotiated the establishment of endowed chairs in nutrition in the name of William W. Allen at Texas A&M University and Cedar Crest College. The Mid-Michigan Medical Center honored her for her contributions in the field of nutrition. Bobbe Allen will be remembered as someone possessed with the desire and ability to transform any setting, be it her home, an institution of healing or a college campus, into something a little more beautiful, a little more successful, and a lot more helpful than it otherwise would have been. She is survived by her children, Dale Baum of College Station, TX, William James Allen of La Jolla, CA, and Gail Elsa Lanphear of Cadillac, MI; and grandchildren, Dalhia S. Schuette, Alexio R. Baum, Laurie Bouwman and William Bouwman. Family members request that those considering a contribution in memory of Roberta R. Allen make a memorial donation to the San Diego Hospice Founda-

tion, 4311 Third Avenue, San Diego, CA 92103, or online at www.sdhospice.org. Please sign the guest book online at www.legacy.com/ obituaries/lajollalight.

and six great-grandchildren. He was predeceased by his two sons, Brooks Channing Noah, Jr. and Richard Wiles Noah and stepson, Richard E. Wiles III. The family would like to thank San Diego Hospice for their incredibly skillful and compassionate care over the last few days and a very special thanks to his devoted caregivers, Spencer and Fernando, who provided Brooks with such loving care, kindness and respect.

Two teams — postgraduate and high school — comprise the program that includes 23 players, four coaches and three houses for them to live in.

cused on one thing: Basketball. “We’re way ahead of schedule,” Trousdale said. “What happened was that we were gonna take it slow, and I always wanted to take it slow, but with the interest level that we got, it snowballed. The phone calls that we got, kids wanted to come so it took off. None of us expected this at all.” Players on the teams came from as far away as Iran and Latvia and as close as Los Angeles and San Diego.

From BasketBall, a20 Trousdale thinks there are two main reasons for the fast start to the program. “I think it was the location and I think the success we had in Arizona,” he said. Trousdale came from Westwind Prep Academy in Phoenix where he led his team to last season’s 2A Arizona State title. He has also placed 33 of his past players in Division I programs. This year’s high school team in La Jolla includes two players who have already committed to big-time college basketball programs in Strahinja Gavrilovic, who will play at USC next season, and Jarion Henry, who will play at one of the top Mountain West Conference basketball programs in New Mexico. Currently, the bulk of high schoolers are going to Julian Charter School, which has an online campus. And a few others are attending The Rock Academy. “Our plan two years down the road is to have our now

facility, our own classrooms and those things,” Trousdale said. “We all have been working 24 hours a day.” “Trousdale said all the athletes that are on his team are of high-character and there were several prospects who he turned down because he thought they would not be a good fit with his program and La Jolla. As for the living arrangements, there are three homes — one in University City, one in Claremont and one in Pacific Beach — where the players live. They have strict rules that include study time, no girls, no music (unless on their headphones) and a curfew at 9:30 p.m. most nights. Each house also has an adult living there as well. The post-grad team will open their season on Oct. 7 at the Mullen/Mitchell Jamboree in Baytown, Texas. As for the high school team, it will begin play on Oct. 22 at Stonerbridge Prep in Simi Valley. “We have more talent than we ever had. The verdict is still out on what kinda team we’re gonna have, obviously,” Trousdale said.

10 questions

Sandy Coggan Erickson attended La Jolla Elementary School, graduated from La Jolla High School in 1962 and received a bachelor’s degree from the UCLA in 1965. She married Dave Erickson and worked for the Los Angeles sandy Coggan County Department erickson of Public Social Services. She returned to La Jolla in 1973 when her husband accepted a job at Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC). During the 1970s, she coordinated the early childhood education program at Pacific Beach Elementary School, served on the Board of San Diego Junior Theatre in Balboa Park, was a Girl Scout troop leader, and a volunteer with the Boy Scouts. During the ’80s, she owned Erickson Consulting, a computer training company. She offered her classes through Computerland of San Diego owned by La Jollans Norm Dinnsen and Dave McDonough. Erickson has been a volunteer at La Jolla High School for more than 20 years. She founded the LJHS Alumni Association in 1991 and is president of the Foundation of La Jolla High School. This year marks the high school’s 90th anniversary and she is chairing the “Celebrating Ninety Years on Nautilus” committee. The Ericksons, along with Rita and Richard Atkinson, are honorary co-chairs of the La Jolla Historical Society’s “Partners for History” capital campaign to raise funds for the restoration of Wisteria Cottage, donated by Ellen Revelle and family. To date, the campaign has received more than $1.6 million toward its $2 million goal.

By Jenna Jay eals, palm trees and sand-covered steps — all icons of La Jolla’s most popular swim spot — are now part of the new Cove Collection, a line of women’s swimsuits designed by Jennifer Carrillo. She unveiled her collection at the Cove in advance of the Sept. 11 Rough Water Swim. Carrillo’s Lorelei Swimwear (lorelei means mermaid) launched its onepiece, two-piece and triangle-top competitive suits from a tent near swimmers and snorkelers. The swimsuits were $45-$50 during the weekend-long presale. They retail for $49.99-$56.99 and come in sizes small to extra-large. Boasting a line based on affordability with a hometown-hook, Carrillo’s collection features collages of over-exposed images of the Cove, most first captured on film by Carrillo herself. “The artwork adds something on that people call close to them,” she said. “The over-exposed pictures are really popular right now. I took something that’s trending and made it into something that’s more Jennifer Carrillo with two suit appropriate for what we’re doing samples. photos by jenna jay with the swim line. It’s something that people can relate to locally.” Carrillo, a self-described “water sports girl” and former competitive swimmer, said she has participated in several openwater swims in the Cove. She has been designing swimsuits and other apparel for nearly a decade, and the new Cove Collection for Lorelei Swimwear has been a work in progress for almost two years.

How ‘Merlot’ can you go? LJ Art & Wine Festival will show! By WILL BoWen What could be better for your heart than sipping wine and viewing art — and knowing that you’re doing it to help La Jolla’s three elementary schools? It’s all possible at the third annual La Jolla Art and Wine Festival (LJAWF), to be held in the middle of Girard Street, from Pearl to Genter, on the weekend of Oct. 1-2. The 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. event is being directed by Joseph Lillis for the second year. Lillis is known for his triumphant handling of the Sausalito Art Festival in the Bay Area. Event founder Sherry Ahern said this year’s goal is to make $60,000 to $80,000 for schools. To that end, Lillis reports there will be 150

artist booths set up under white tents arranged in a zigzag pattern on Girard. At the end of artists’ row, there will be a stage for music with different groups performing jazz, folk, gypsy, blues, and surf rock on the hour each day of the event. Beyond the stage, there will be a picnic-style beer and wine garden for sampling fine wines and great-tasting beers with seating for 750. On the east side of the Girard, a gourmet food court will spring up. On the west side, Geppetto’s Family Art Center is planned, where kids will be able to splash paint over everything — including a donated car!

The sets are the booths and tents, and the focus is on entertainment. “And we are also going to make this festival look very good. We are bringing in all the artists’ tents, so everything will be uniformly attractive. We will have set the tents up like a promenade; it’s going to be like strolling up the ChampsÉlysées in Paris.”

FROM FESTIVAL, B1 All proceeds from the festival will go to La Jolla, Bird Rock, and Torrey Pines Elementary Schools — to support the art, music, and science programs on the budget-chopping block. Lillis is optimistic about the future of LJAWF, too. “Sausalito and La Jolla have a lot in common. Both are situated on the water in a beautiful setting. There are many art-minded people here, as in Sausalito, and I think we can build this festival into a Top 10 event,” he said. Lillis explained that he upped the quality of the art at LJAWF and brought in a nationally recognized panel of jurors who selected a very high level of works “to attract greater interest.” “I promise that you are going to see some very unique things — things you never expected to see. We were able to get topnotch artists to attend because they know they can sell well at my events. In Sausalito, some of the sculptors were making upward of $100,000 in the three-day event.” Lillis has a background in musical theater and puts on his art events like they were

FROM 10 questiOns, B1 Flash were special to me as an eight-yearold and will be forever. What would you add, subtract or improve in the area? I would add more funding to ensure the conservation of our fragile coastline, remove the people (both pro and con) from the seal controversy circus at the Children’s Pool so one could walk the coastline in peace, and improve safe public access to our beaches. Who or what inspires you? My father, by example, inspired me to use my time and talents for the support of the things I care about … my family, my alma mater (La Jolla High School) and our unique community (La Jolla Historical Society).

From left: Whitney Worthington, stacy sauls, suzanne Devore and Frances Ber model the Cove Collection. Jenna Jay FROM sWiMWeAR, B1 recently taken a backseat to Carrillo’s two young children, the designer is using her new swimwear as a way to get reacquainted with the water. “I’m looking at this as my entryway back into the whole realm of organized swimming,” Carrillo said. “It’s something that I’ve always loved to do. Since I’ve had children, it’s been a lit-

serving the world’s oceans. Carrillo sells her swimsuits online and at select stores around town. Lorelei’s expansion could include men’s competitive swimsuits in the future, but for now, Carrillo will continue designing women’s wear exclusively. She is already at work on her next Southern California coastal-inspired collection.

If you hosted a dinner for eight, whom (living or deceased) would you invite? My parents, Bonnie and Sandy Coggan; their parents, Bernard and Blanche Coggan and Carl and Leota Creagan; and my husband, Dave, so I could hear the answers to the questions I failed to ask when they were ALL alive. I now have only my mother who can no longer communicate, and my husband who is my best friend. I truly regret not having more family oral history. What is your most-prized possession? The memorabilia collection I have acquired for the Coggan, Creagan,

Erickson and Stromberg families that I will be able to pass on to my children. What are you five favorite movies of all time? “Bambi” — the first movie I saw in a theater. “Wizard of Oz” — always wanted to be Dorothy with the magical red shoes. “Swing Time” — amazing dancing by Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. “Sound of Music” — a wonderful blend of music, love and history. “Fly Away Home” — an inspiring movie I love to watch with my grandchildren. What are you reading? “The Princes of Ireland — the Dublin Saga” by Edward Rutherfurd. It was given to me by my dear friend, Gleneva Belice, who knows I’m more Irish than anything else. What is your greatest accomplishment? Marrying the right man, at the young age of 21, who fathered our two amazing children (our daughter Shannon graduated from The Bishop’s School in 1987 and our son Shawn graduated from LJHS in 1992 and we have three grandchildren, Annette, Amelia and Linnea Lee) and who has managed to cope with me and my passions for more than 45 years. What is your motto or philosophy of life? Whatever you do, do it the best you know how!

oy Scout Troop 506 organized its annual Family Surf Camp on San Elijo Beach with great success Sept. 9-11. Some 55 Troop and family members enjoyed the weekend in Cardiff, a memorable campfire, surfing, biking and skate boarding. Using the power of teamwork (and friendly competition), the Scouts executed their beach cleanup, scouring white sands from Cardiff to Swami’s. The boys collected dozens of bags of non-recyclable items, plus plastic, glass and cans. The Scouts with the biggest, the most unusual and heaviest items were rewarded prizes. The Surf Camp was sponsored by Roberto’s Mexican Food and Pizza Port of Solana Beach, VG Doughnut of Cardiff, Mitch’s Surf Shop of La Jolla and American Produce Distributors. Troop 506 meets at 6:30 p.m. Mondays at La Jolla United Methodist Church, 6063 La Jolla Blvd. Families interested may contact Scoutmaster Clark Smith (troop506clark@aol.com) or Committee Chairman John Stojic (john@oneccc.com).

‘Young Symphony’ from Germany to open St. James Music Series The St. James Music Series launches its 27th season with a performance by the 70-member Landesjungendorchester RheinlandPfalz, aka The Young Symphony of Germany, at 4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 2 at the St. James By-the-Sea Episcopal Church, 743 Prospect St. The group has performed concerts throughout Europe, the Middle East and China. In their only La Jolla appearance, they will present works of the Germanic tradition, including the Coriolanus Overture of Beethoven, and Bruckner’s Symphony No. 4 in E-flat Major, the “Romantic” symphony. “It’s wonderful to hear such a talented and dedicated group of young people performing at a world-class level that rivals many adult symphony orchestras. We hope that families will come to hear this concert and that it will inspire our own young

musicians as well,” said Steve Townsend, director of the St. James Music Series. The performance marks the first of four intimate concerts in the 2011-2012 program. Other performances will include the Karl Jenkins’ “The Armed Man: A Mass For Peace” performed by the Choir of St. James by-the-Sea and orchestra (Nov. 13), a return engagement by the Grammywinning all-male ensemble Chanticleer (March 11), and a vocal program by Anonymous 4, an all-female quartet with a unique perspective and a varied repertoire (April 22). Subscriptions are available at www.sjbts. org for $60, individual tickets are $25 each. Tickets can be purchased at the door if seats are still available. For more information, contact Townsend by e-mail: steven.townsend@sjbts.org or (858) 459-3421, ext. 109.

Falling Back to Earth Former La Jollan chronicles the end of the space race in new book By Steven Mihailovich Although many people were dismayed to learn that the July 8 mission of the space shuttle Atlantis was the last in the 30-year program that epitomized American know-how, inquisitiveness and daring, Mark Albrecht of La Jolla wasn’t a bit surprised. Albrecht not only saw it coming, he was there when the decline began, serving as President George H. W. Bush’s principal advisor on the U.S. space program from 1989 to June, 1992. Now, 20 years later, Albrecht documents the conversations and actions involving the famous and the flawed during that pivotal period in his new book, “Falling Back to Earth: A First Hand Account of the Great Space Race and the End of the Cold War.” “There was a huge outcry when the last shuttle flight occurred and people began to recognize that that was the end of the line,” Albrecht said. “(We find ourselves) grounded in 2011 with no access for humans in space; no plans to explore further in the galaxy and the universe; no destination; in essence, no dream. I thought Americans deserve to know how we got to where we are, why, and what things were done by what people specifically to try to stop that from happening.” The book, completed in four-and-a-half years during periods of intense writing interspersed with lulls, is based on Albrecht’s extensive notes during his tenure on the National Space Council in the White

Mark J. albrecht (born March 10, 1950 in St. louis, Mo.) is a senior aerospace and telecommunications executive with broad government and industry experience. he grew up in la Jolla, graduated from la Jolla high School, then completed his B.a. and M.a. at Ucla and earned a Ph.D. from the Rand Graduate School. COURTESY House, he said. It details the country’s failure to transition the U.S. program into a peaceful exploration of space after 30 years as a competition with the rival Soviet Union when the latter disintegrated during Bush’s term, despite strong support to do so from the 41st President Bush and his Vice President Dan Quayle, whom Albrecht describes as the prime “visionaries” among other political and scientific luminaries. Because so much of America’s economic vitality and technological dominance in the past half century were based on innovations developed in the space program, Albrecht considers the end of the space program a catastrophe that could potentially have as much impact on the country as the attacks of Sept. 11.

“It may not be as dramatic momentarily, but I think it has as big a consequence,” he said. “I think very soon you’re going to start finding people who say; what happened? where did it go? why is it where it is? and what do we need to do to get it right? “Modestly, things like my book, hopefully, will help contribute to that public discourse and debate. It’s the beginning of a process that says, alright, where can we start peeling this back and get back to basics and go on about the business.” As someone advocating for a return to a space program that challenges the country’s talents and spirit, Albrecht has put his money where his mouth is by donating all the income from sales of his book to the California State Summer School

for Mathematics and Science (COSMOS), which provides high school students with exceptional math and science skills an opportunity to be involved in cutting edge research during a fourweek residential program at four University of California campuses, including the one in San Diego. Gayle Wilson, the wife of former U.S. Senator and Governor Pete Wilson, was instrumental in the launch of COSMOS in 2000. She’s known Albrecht for 30 years, when he served as her husband’s key staff member on defense and space matters. “This is really out-of-thebox thinking,” Wilson said. “So much lip service is paid to how America needs to stay current in science, but it’s very hard to raise money for smart kids. (Albrecht’s contribution) came out of left field, not because he’s not a generous man. It’s just not too many people write a book to give their proceeds away.” Albrecht is appearing on television and radio shows

‘Falling Back to earth: a first-hand account of the Great Space Race and the end of the cold War,’ by Mark albrecht, June 2011, paperback, $12, available at amazon.com to tout his book. He also plans appearances at universities and bookstores across the country and is in negotiations for a stop at Warwick’s. “As a La Jollan, that would be very exciting for me because I grew up going to the old library at the Athenaeum and going to Warwick’s as my bookstore,” Al-

brecht said. “So the idea of actually being at Warwick’s signing books that I wrote is really a great thought.” Albrecht attended La Jolla Elementary, Muirlands, and La Jolla High School before attending UCLA and Rand Graduate School and rocketing to a vocation intricately tied to the space program. Although his career path was not without difficulties, Albrecht said it was clear because of its start in the community. “One of the amazing things about growing up in La Jolla is that it’s so exciting,” he said. “It was just this incredible candy store of opportunity — the kind of people you lived around, went to school with, the kinds of arts and creativity — it was just a paradise in that regard. I think it was very helpful. Some people find it a little overwhelming and I could certainly understand that. But for a lot of others, it created an expectation in your life that you would be part of big things.”

LA JOLLA LIGHT - SEPTEMBER 22, 2011 - Page B9

Winston the Wonder Dog meets his match

Let Inga tell you ... I really never saw myself as the Hannibal Lecter of the pet world. Olof and I love animals and we are besotted with one in particular: our grand dog, Winston, who recently spent four months in our care. But after Winston failed with two treatoriented trainers to curtail his leash and front gate aggression issues, we were forced to employ Hans Berserker, and his sidekick Ranulf the Lunge Meister (not their real names). I would like to emphasize that Winston is the sweetest dog who ever lived with people and really good with other dogs when they’re on our side of the fence. Opposite side: mortal enemy. Inside: love and wiggles. Winston has no walk-by traffic at our son’s home but at our house, every time another dog walked by — which is like every four minutes — he would charge our front gate channeling his inner crazed pit bull. (Winston is not a pit

bull.) Unfortunately, it was self-reinforcing. Since people kept walking (usually quickly), Winston would congratulate himself. “I, Winston the Uber Dog, have vanquished the enemy and kept the house safe for Democracy. Or something.” The second trainer finally said to us that her skills were not up to Winston (we found it odd for a trainer to say this) and recommended a trainer that she would consider to be the Cesar Milan of San Diego. What we discovered the minute Hans Berserker showed up was that the translation was she didn’t use “behavior collars.” I was appalled. It goes against everything I hold dear to apply painful stimuli to animals. “I’m sorry,” I said to Hans as he slapped the collar on Winston, “but I could never consider a shock collar that didn’t have a warning button.” “It does,” said Hans. “It’s called your voice. Which he isn’t listening to.” I was relieved to notice that one of the options was a pager — just a vibration Fortunately, for the guilt levels of Olof and me, Winston seems to hate the pager most. The first time Hans demonstrated the shock feature, I turned to Winston and said, “This is really hurting me more than you.”

Winston gave me a dour gaze and responded in Dog, “Yeah right.” But seriously, every zap of that transmitter took a day off my life expectancy. Both the good and the bad news is that the behavior collar worked really well when nothing else did. Still, one thing I noticed was that Winston behaved PERFECTLY when Hans was around. Walk Winston by Hans and one of his German Shepherd training dogs and Winston is like, “Dog? Do I see any dogs? And I am so not messing with that big exMarine guy with the transmitter.” Winston was clear that Hans was the alpha male. He was equally clear that Grandma was the alpha mush ball. Winston pretty much stopped charging the gate (unless it was a big black dog in which case the pain was worth it). The lunging at other dogs while on the leash wasn’t fully eradicated. Hans came back and brought Ranulf the Lunge Meister and several great big dogs for us to practice with. Hans immediately observed: “Once he’s lunged, it’s too late. You need to ‘alert’ him as soon as the ears go up.” In other words, he needs to be zapped when he has committed lunge in his heart.

Meanwhile, friends would ask of our son and daughterin-law, “Do they know you’re electrocuting their dog?” We didn’t confess for quite a while because we knew they needed a temporary home for him. Meanwhile, my daughter-inlaw’s mother who is not a fan of either dogs or Winston, queried, “How many volts can you give him?” I will not say what it costs to engage the services of Hans Berserker and Ranulf and their fleet of scary if impeccably behaved canines, but as Olof has observed, for what we spent on Winston, we could buy a whole new dog. It has also taken some three hours out of my day actively reeducating our radiocontrolled grand pet. But he’s now back at home after his sojourn at Camp Grammy and Grampy. We really miss the little fur ball, especially his new improved non-pit bullish self. I almost don’t know what to do with my time now, or what to do with a “behavior” collar. But as more than a few passersby have asked, “Does it work on husbands?” Look for La Jolla resident Inga’s lighthearted looks at life every other week in the La Jolla Light.

Mussels with sake, radish and bread

Burlap offers ‘the whole package’ to diners seeking new sensations By Kelley Carlson ne of North County’s newest restaurants, Burlap, appears to be cut from a different cloth. Opened in July by celebrity chef Brian Malarkey and James Brennan — who also collaborated on Searsucker in downtown San Diego — the social dining establishment carries an “Asian Cowboy” motif. “Worldly, rugged, adventurous … that’s what I wanted to convey,” Malarkey said. Thomas Schoos designed the 9,000-squarefoot space (formerly the home of Wherehouse Music in the Del Mar Highlands Town Center) with items from China, Thailand, South Africa, India, The Philippines, Japan and Brazil. There are water buffalo skulls, Pakistani rugs, 200-yearold metal dragons, taxidermic specimens, a saddle, and oriental-patterned and animal-print cushions found throughout the restaurant; the establishment’s namesake “burlap” fabric is paneled on some of the interior walls. Authentic Chinese “Lion Dance” masks hang over the indoor bar, while the outdoor counterpart is inlaid with a dark brown, handcarved, 19th century Indonesian wall. Outside, patrons can lounge in chairs around a fire pit or dine at a table, and watch koi glide through a pond full of lily pads; bamboo surrounds the patio’s exterior. The lively Burlap is often full of chatter — guests may easily migrate from the lounge to the main dining area, to each of the bars and outdoors. Progressive music played by a DJ can also be heard Thursdays through Saturdays. A private dining room is available for those seeking more seclusion.

Each week you’ll find a recipe from the featured restaurant online at lajollalight.com. Just click ‘Get The Recipe’ at the bottom of the story. Celebrity chef Brian Malarkey, co-owner of the newly opened Burlap Malarkey noted that food can be eaten anywhere in the establishment. “You can stand up in the corner if you want to,” he said. Burlap’s motto is where the “West Eats Meat”; the menu is heavy with Asian-influenced protein entrees, many of which contain ingredients such as ginger, soy and pepper. Malarkey’s favorites include the Dungeness Crab, with wasabi cocktail and avocado; Spicy Tuna-Crispy Rice, featuring albacore and spicy caper mayo; Whole “Angry” Snapper, containing serrano, orange, garlic and basil; Garlic Noodles; and Pork Belly with steamed bun, lime hoisin and pickled vege. Some vegetable options are available, such as Heirloom Tomato & Tofu, Field Greens (strawberry, seven-spice walnuts, goat cheese and plum vinaigrette) and Enoki Mushroom (arugula, smoked soy vinaigrette). “Completely kid-friendly” for lunch and early dinner Sunday through Wednesday, Burlap does not offer a children’s menu, according to Malarkey. However, the restaurant

■ This week: Burlap’s Asian Cowboy Shrimp and Grits will prepare items like french fries, chicken satay and rice, for the youngsters. Malarkey advises grown-ups to come in with friends and “work your way through the menu.” Try something new each time, he suggests, and then hang out in the lounge and order a mixed cocktail. Burlap’s signature drinks include the Shanghai Mule, made with Ty Ku sake, ginger beer, fresh lime juice and house-made Chinese five spice bitters; and the flaming Smoke and Mirrors Cocktail Co. Punch, which contains light and dark rums, Velvet Falernum, guava puree and pineapple juice. Burlap tends to get booked, especially Thursday through Saturday nights, so Malarkey recommends reservations, although walk-ins are welcome to find a seat on a couch. “There are so many things we offer,” he said. “We’re social, huge, there’s the decorations, the staff is warm and funny, the drinks are amazing. The food is over the top, unusual, fun and exciting. We’re the whole package.”

Athenaeum gala guests find a Thai Fantasy at annual benefit

R

Did you know? ■ Thailand is the only Southeast Asian country never to have been colonized by a colonial power. ■ Thai silk, considered to be one of the world’s finest fabrics, is produced from the cocoons of Thai silkworms. ■ Wat Pho (Temple of the Reclining Buddha) is the largest temple in Bangkok. The huge Buddha, covered in gold leaf, is 151 feet long and 49 feet high, and the bottom of his feet are inlaid with Mother of Pearl. ■ Thailand is the world leader in the protection of elephants, though only 2,600 are left there, most living in elephant camps. ■ Residents speak Thai, a tonal language; the tone changes the meaning of words, even if the pronunciation is the same.

La Jolla Coast Walkers are making their way up to Oregon By KirBy BrooKs A group of La Jollans who call themselves “The Coast Walkers,” rack up 50 miles per year on their goal to perambulate from Southern California to Oregon — not bad for trekkers age 65 and older. Group leaders Ron Williamson and Nick Haritatos have been strolling around San Diego every Sunday for the past 15 or 16 years, and dreamt up the idea of walking beyond town — with their wives in tow — 10 years ago. “We have had our feet in every hill, mountain and beach in San Diego,” Haritatos said. “So we decided to see more and walk from south of Imperial Beach, near the Mexico border, all the way up to the California/Oregon border.” Williamson chimed in, “Our walks have shown us why people say California is different. There’s no other place where you can walk all day and never run out of beach.” Both ex-pilots, Haritatos and Williamson said they relish in planning their biannual trips with the Coast Walkers, using GPS, satellite images, and a California Coastal Trail book to map out their journeys. But even though they carefully set their daily mileage goals, make no mistake, the Coast Walkers are all about fun! They stay in hotels and eat at restaurants during their weeklong excursions, “we want to keep our wives happy, after all,” Haritatos joked. Their days on the road begin at 7:30 a.m., when they meet for breakfast at their hotel (they try to stay two nights per stop if possible) and discuss any issues they might encounter that day. They begin walking at a “nice pace” at 8 a.m. and stop throughout the day to eat and gaze at their surroundings. Walkers are free to stop at any time. They have a driver following with a First Aid kit and other necessities. Those who don’t want to stop walking wrap up their day at 6 p.m. when the group reunites for dinner. The Coast Walkers pick hotels located along the coast and try to walk against traffic to reduce the risk of injury. They plan their route

Members of the Coast Walkers include Nick and Ann Haritatos, ron Williamson, Joanna Brown, and Leila and Marshal Taylor, pictured here looking at the Boardwalk at santa Cruz, the midpoint in their walk from the san Diego/ Tijuana border to California’s northern border. Courtesy so by lunchtime they are near a state park or town where they can rest and refuel. On Oct. 31, the Coast Walkers (eight total so far) will embark on a trek from Greyhound Rock Beach (Santa Cruz) to Golden Gate Bridge. They also have their spring trip on the horizon, with 14 people confirmed to participate. In mid-May, the

Coast Walkers will make their way from San Francisco Bay to the Russian River, located South of Fort Ross. “I am 70 years old, so I want to reach the Oregon Border on our walks before I meet my maker,” Williamson joked. Not missing a beat, fellow walker Haritatos quipped, “We’re all younger

than he is.” Ten years into their odyssey, and having reached the mid-point at Santa Cruz,

they now plan two walking vacations each year so they can reach their goal by 2015 or sooner.

To Join Coast Walkers ■ The next weeklong trip starts at the end of October. Newcomers are welcome by calling Nick at (858) 405-7476 or Ron at (858) 245 9338, send an e-mail to: rww@ williamsonbrownlaw.com ■ If you join, van transportation and motel reservations will be made for you on a sharethe-cost basis.

Cast of 200 to perform musical ‘Odyssey’ for The Globe’s 75th year By Diana Saenger In celebration of the Old Globe Theatre’s 75th anniversary, director Lear deBessonet and writer Todd Almond will premiere a musical theater event, “Odyssey.” The work reimagines Homer’s epic poem from deBessonet’s conversations with San Diegans at large. Commissioned by The Globe, “Odyssey” has a three-day run Sept. 30-Oct. 2 in the Lowell Davies Festival Theatre. DeBessonet is an energetic artist who is no stranger to creating big events. Her resume includes “The Scarlet Letter,” “My Fair Lady,” “Don Quixote,” a community-based collaboration with a homeless shelter in Philadelphia that was named in “Best Shows of 2009” by Philadelphia Weekly, and more. She was eager to talk about “Odyssey.” Q: “Odyssey” is part of the Globe’s Southeastern San Diego Residency Project. How did it originate? A: I had a commission to create a piece for The Globe so several years ago I came

If you go ■ What: ‘Odyssey”’ ■ When: 8 p.m. Sept. 30, Oct. 1; 7 p.m. Oct. 2 ■ Where: Lowell Davies Festival Theatre, The Old Globe, Balboa Park ■ Tickets: $15 ■ Box Office: (619) 23-GLOBE ■ Website: TheOldGlobe.org to San Diego to meet as many different San Diegans as possible. Then Todd and I started working on the idea. He wrote the music and lyrics, and we imagined this ideal version of “what ifs” — we had the Valhalla High School Percussion Ensemble or 30 children from San Diego Jr. Theatre come running out from the floor, or Culture Shock San Diego to perform, St. Stephen’s Church Choir to sing and be the voice of Athena, or the San Diego Youth Symphony and Conservatory to score a dream ballet of Od-

ysseus’ homecoming? At one point Todd and I looked at each other like, really? Every outlandish thing we thought of we got, and we’re so happy the groups said yes. Q: The cast is 200 people. How do you pull that off? A: This is the largest cast I’ve ever worked with, but once it’s above 50 people it’s the same whether 60 or 300. You have to be organized in the same ways of directing a parade, pageant or the Olympics’ opening ceremonies. I do have a stage manager team of four who are the most on-top-of teams I’ve ever worked with, but necessary since I need to know very hour what we’re working on. Q: You worked with Todd before on several shows including “On the Levee” at the Lincoln Center. What’s your collaboration like? A: There is fluidity between us that makes it possible to do something like this. He’s one of the most talented composers of a new generation of musical the-

ater writers, and he has a generous spirit, which this project requires in working with all of these people. Q: “Odyssey” chronicles the trials the ancient Greek hero Odysseus faces on his long journey home from the war at Troy. Disguised as a beggar he must win back his wife, Penelope, and take revenge on the suitors who have been circling her in his absence. Why was this the story you chose to tell? A: I spent 14-hour days talking to people all over San Diego – from Balboa Park, the YMCA, border guards, and people taking tutoring sessions – to ask how they came to make San

Diego their home. A recurring theme arose that made me think of the “Odyssey,” one of our great narratives of a journey toward home, or someone trying to reconcile with their family.

with Shelly Thomas (Penelope/Circe) before in “On The Levee.” Todd knew Alvin Crawford from Julliard and thought he would be the perfect Odysseus. And Todd plays the Singer.

Q: Does it help that choreographers Tony and Maria Caligagan have Globe experience? A: Yes. In addition to knowing the space and institution, they have an ease with each other, and with this big of a production, you need two choreographers.

Q: Do you have a favorite element of the show? A: Every time a new group comes into the room I feel like I’m falling in love with them. They are all so great, especially since among the 47-core ensemble, a lot had never performed a production before. But then we have three female students from the San Diego School of Creative and Performing Arts who blew us away. It will be a terrific event.

Q: In addition to community groups there are professional cast members as well? A: Yes. Todd and I worked

Museum of Contemporary Art promises new show is ‘Phenomenal’ From museum reports A look at 13 artists working in Los Angeles in the 1960s and ’70s, whose perceptual investigations and use of light and innovative materials helped define an era of art making in California, opens Sept. 25 at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego. Organized by curator Robin Clark with museum director Hugh M. Davies, who are calling it “our most ambitious exhibition to date,” “Phenomenal: California Light, Space, Surface” will be on view through Jan. 22 at MCASD’s two locations in La Jolla and downtown San Diego. “Phenomenal” features the art of Peter Alexander, Larry Bell, Ron Cooper, Mary Corse, Robert Irwin, Craig Kauffman, John McCracken, Bruce Nauman, Eric Orr, Helen Pashgian, James Turrell, De Wain Valentine and Doug Wheeler. “We have a long history with all of these artists, perhaps longer than any other contemporary art institution in Southern California,” Davies said. “We have shown

the artists since they emerged in the ’60s and ’70s, and are immensely gratified to be presenting them again as part of the largest exhibition in our history.” Combining key works from the museum’s collection with major loans from prominent public and private collections, the exhibition includes immersive

light installations together with rare, ephemeral, and site-conditioned works, some seen in California for the first time in decades, according to curators. “Phenomenal” will be accompanied by an illustrated catalog co-published by MCASD and University of California Press. “Due to the generosity of the participat-

ing artists and their estates, each of whom have opened their studios and archives to this project, the book is the most comprehensive publication in MCASD’s history, and something we hope will be valuable to researchers and general audiences for years to come,” said curator Clark.

Liquid Nation Ball helps to raise money for 13 local charities

S

urfing Industry Manufacturers Association (SIMA) chief Fernando Aguerre hosted the annual Liquid Nation Ball at his oceanfront home on Sept. 17. Aguerre and his brother, Santiago, held the first Liquid Nation Ball eight years ago to benefit SurfAid International. At this year’s party, Shaney Jo Darden, founder of the Keep A Breast Foundation, was honored with SIMA’s Humanitarian of the Year award. KAB takes plaster molds of women’s (and men’s) torsos. These casts are a trademark of the organization and are given to fine artists to paint, and then shown in art exhibitions, and finally are auctioned off with proceeds going to KAB and other breast cancer awareness organizations. Since 2004, Liquid Nation Ball has donated more than $1.4 million to surf-related, non-profit humanitarian organizations. The 2011 Liquid Nation Ball beneficiaries include AccesSurf Hawaii, Best Day Foundation, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Jimmy Miller Foundation, Keep A Breast, Life Rolls On Foundation, Mauli OlaFoundation, Outdoor Outreach, Stoked Mentoring, SurfAid International, Surfers Healing, The Sumba Foundation and Waves for Water.

Initiated through grants from the Getty Foundation, PST will take place for six months beginning in October. MCASD’s La Jolla galleries will feature works by Peter Alexander, Larry Bell, Ron Cooper, Robert Irwin, John Mc-

Cracken, Bruce Nauman, Eric Orr, Helen Pashgian, James Turrell, De Wain Valentine and Doug Wheeler.
