BY ASHLEY MACKIN Responding to community concerns about safety on the pedestrian bridge over Torrey Pines Road and the homeless population sometimes found there, San Diego Community Relations Officer Larry Hesselgesser addressed the La Jolla Shores Association (LJSA) at its March 12 meeting, revealing how the police can help with their Quality of Life Team, and how the public, in turn, can help police. LJSA Chair Tim Lucas read a letter by La Jolla Shores resident Catherine Speyer, who was unable to attend the meeting. “The bridge has become a safety issue since we have to had to wade our way through homeless people sleeping on the bridge, defecating on the bridge and drinking on the bridge,” Speyer wrote. “The trash and human waste is disgusting.” Shores resident Karen Marshal was at the meeting to express similar concerns. Marshal said people often panhandle and sleep in the area shadowed by all the brush and vines there. The vines have grown over the protective fencing that domes the bridge to create a shaded area that casts a dark shadow — even during daylight hours — and is near the entrance on the north side of SEE TORREY PINES BRIDGE, AA2


SANDAG hears 11th-hour trolley line shift woes BY PAT SHERMAN More than 100 people filled the community room of La Jolla Village Square mall March 13 to ask officials with the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) why the location at which the San Diego Trolley extension would cross over Interstate 5 was shifted south to within 42 yards of the Cape La Jolla Gardens (CLJG) condo complex. Irate CLJG residents told SANDAG the trolley’s close proximity to their complex would diminish their quality of life and property values. In June 2013, SANDAG hosted five public workshops in the area to address project impacts outlined in a draft environmental impact report (DEIR) for the project (released in May 2013), at which many CLJG residents were present. (The period to comment on the DEIR also closed in June 2013.) The DEIR showed the trolley crossing I-5 at the furthest point north SANDAG has yet proposed (as represented by a blue line in the map on page AA3). After the public comment period for the DEIR closed, however, SANDAG moved the I-5 crossing SEE TROLLEY LINE SHIFT, AA2

Saby David, who owns units at Cape La Jolla Gardens, demands to know how the previous track alignment, proposed in last summer’s environmental report, would have affected the Mormon temple. The tracks were moved south to within 127 feet of his complex at the behest of Mormon temple officials, SANDAG concedes. PAT SHERMAN

Town Council to seek help with closing 2013-14 books BY ASHLEY MACKIN At the March 13 La Jolla Town Council meeting, trustees and attendees were updated on the council’s financial situation in light of confusion over the statement from the La Jolla Dancing with the Stars fundraiser in October 2013, and also learned the election results for the 2014-2015 board, as well as news about upcoming community events. Due to last-minute changes to the treasury report, Treasurer Yolanda De Riquer said earlier that day the Town Council had a certain amount in its bank account, but couldn’t determine the source of all the additions and deductions. An hour before the meeting, the Town Council was issued a stop

La Jolla Town Council payment on a check it received and included in its report. Town Council President Cindy Greatrex later told the Light the check was a donation to the La Jolla Christmas Parade and Holiday Festival, which parade organizer and Town Council Trustee Ann Kerr-Bache re-donated to the Town Council. Due to an issue with the sender, the check had to be cancelled. Greatrex said the concern is being worked out.

Further, in reviewing the income and expense report for the Dancing with the Stars event, provided by organizer and Town Council Trustee Nancy Gardner, an unexplained $9,000 discrepancy was spotted. Greatrex later said that figure was the result of a check for an auction item that had been given, but had not been cashed, so the amount was still in the Town Council’s bank statement. Greatrex said ideally auction items are donated, but in some cases, they must be purchased or the contributor paid after the auction. “It’s been an expensive month around here,” she joked. With the hopes of clarifying these issues and verifying the numbers, the Town Council

executive committee budgeted $1,000 for an accountant to review the finances. The Town Council’s fiscal year ends in April.

Trustee Election Results The Town Council held its election for new trustees in February. Per its bylaws, De Riquer counted the ballots for the election prior to the March meeting and Secretary Charles Hartford affirmed them at the meeting before announcing the winners, though the vote numbers were not revealed at the meeting. Hartford said these five candidates were elected: Cindy Greatrex, Peter Wulff, Charles Schevker, Maureen Murphy and Cathy Jones.

FROM TORREY PINES BRIDGE, AA1 Torrey Pines Road, in front of Hotel La Jolla. Residents also complained of homeless encampment and property left behind on the other side of the bridge, directly in front of The Children’s School. Speaking with La Jolla Light, Children’s School Principal Evelyn Terry said she, too, worries about safety and parents have also complained about the tenuous situation. “The bridge has been used as a ‘home,’ even when the transient person is gone, with a bed created of cardboard and belongings, a stash of food and sometimes puddles of vomit. “We have some families who walk across the bridge with their children to and from school,” she said. “I have received several complaints that the children found it ‘scary’ when they and their parents came upon someone sleeping on the bridge.” Terry said in the past, she called the police non-emergency line, and was told to call back with a detailed description of the person when they were there, but had difficulty taking the time away from work to do so. Officer Hesselgesser suggests contacting him directly so he may assign officers from the Quality of Life Team to the problem area. He can be reached at LHesselgesser@ “This isn’t your average homeless outreach team,” he told residents. “The Quality of Life Team deals with the criminal element of homeless populations. The ones that are panhandling and coming into your neighborhoods and burglarizing — those are the ones that the Team deals with.” Within one day of hearing about the situation on the pedestrian bridge,

to you,” Hesselgesser said. “The days of our officers being able to drive around and proactively look for things going on are over. Unless we know that something is going on in your neighborhood that is not right, we don’t know to send an officer there.” In encampment situations, Hesselgesser said the best thing to do is take photos of the situation or the person (when safe to do so) and precisely describe the location.

Problem solved?

FROM TROLLEY LINE SHIFT, AA1 south by 360 feet to be within close proximity to the northeast corner of CLJG (as represented by the map’s green line), largely at the behest of Mormon temple representatives, SANDAG officials said. However, SANDAG e-mails obtained by La Jolla Light show that temple representatives met with SANDAG Executive Director Gary Gallegos and County Supervisor Ron Roberts on April 23 to advocate for the southward shift — two months before the public was asked to consider the blue line configuration. In a March 27 e-mail to SANDAG Mid-Coast Project Manager Greg Gastelum, Allen Haynie, a lobbyist who is also a member of the Mormon temple, wrote: “The representatives of the Church are very anxious to meet with Supervisor Roberts and Gary to discuss their concerns and hopefully find a solution. After meeting with you and (SANDAG consultant) Susanne Bankhead, I went back and looked at the prior alignment (the map’s yellow line) that had been provided to the Church at the time the Church was asked to publicly support the alignment, which it did at a SANDAG hearing. The alignment the Church was shown and that the Church supported crossed over the I-5 freeway much further to the south of the San Diego Temple than the alignment you presented during our most recent meeting. I can’t emphasize how important this issue is to the Church.”

give any leeway.” Though the Quality of Life Team covers La Jolla, University City, Claremont and Mission Beach, officers said they cannot find encampments without the public’s help. “We’re here to help, we’re here to attack the problem when we hear about it, but we need your eyes and ears in your neighborhood, and we need you to call us when you see something that seems odd

In an April 25 e-mail to Gallegos and Roberts, Luke Rothey, who oversees special real estate projects for the Mormon Church, thanked Roberts and Gallegos for “meeting with us to discuss a mutually agreeable alignment and flyover design,” going on to request electronic versions of exhibits shared during the April 23 meeting, which showed the currently contested green alignment (which SANDAG says its board approved for insertion into the project’s final environmental document in November). Michael Krupp, president of the CLJG Homeowners Association, said he learned about the realignment at a Nov. 13 meeting with SANDAG representatives. Addressing SANDAG officials during last week’s meeting, Saby David, who owns units at CLJG, asked what specific impacts temple officials were concerned with, given that the point where the blue line would cross I-5 was still considerably closer to CLJG than to the Mormon temple. “You had it set up on the blue line for a reason — that you made your study and found that that’s the least impact on all the neighborhoods around,” David said. “We need to know … why you made the decision to move it to a point where Cape La Jolla Gardens is being affected.” Anne Roberts, who purchased a condo at CLJG a year ago, said an environmental report for the crossing proposed in 1995 (the yellow line) noted significant environmental impacts to CLJG residents that also apply to the current green alignment, and should be considered today.

Though the transients and their property have since left, there is the possibility they, or others, might return. Hesselgesser said the vines and plants that cover the fence dome create a semiprivate area that is inviting to homeless people. “We would like those bushes to be cleaned up ... When you take that element away from homeless people, you are going to make it so they don’t want to stay there. If the city comes and cleans out those bushes, we would all be better off. If it’s not as inviting, they will find somewhere else to go,” he said. LJSA Chair Lucas agreed. “There shouldn’t be any vines or any plant material on that pedestrian bridge area because it creates darkness and it should be completely open for safety.” Principal Terry added, “We are also concerned by the overgrowth of vegetation that makes the bridge less safe due to limited visibility.” Though the responsibility of the vegetation overgrowth belongs to San Diego Environmental Services, he suggested citizens contact their local city councilmember to draw attention to the issue. “It’s going to take some phone calls from the public to get that cleaned up,” he said. ◆

John Haggerty, SANDAG Division Director of Rail, and project director for the trolley’s extension to UTC, said a more recent environmental analysis showed no additional noise impacts from the green line and that visual impacts were “really subjective in this area.” He noted that the yellow line alignment proposed in 1995 would have routed the trolley closer to CLJG. It would have run along nearly the entire east side of the complex, instead of only its northeast corner. “There probably would have been sound walls (added) in this area at that time,” he said. Joan Bennett, who does not reside at the complex, and said she rides the trolley when she can, also expressed her support for the blue line alignment. “I get why everybody’s upset,” Bennett said. “You look at that blue line and it’s by far the best.” District 1 City Councilmember Sherri Lightner (who represents La Jolla and UTC and also attended the meeting) said she did not learn about the most recent alignment tweak until January, when CLJG Homeowners Association contacted her office. Lightner said she met with SANDAG’s Gallegos in early March to discuss the change. “What was in the original DEIR was what the community blessed, and what the community saw,” Lightner said. “I let him know that … to have this change at this late date was unacceptable. … I will stand with you

FROM TROLLEY LINE SHIFT, AA2 all on this because I know what the original design was.” Lightner stressed that the final environmental report is not yet complete, and that “opportunities” remain for further revisions. The $1.7 billion trolley extension from San Diego’s Old Town includes three stops in Mission Bay and six stops in the UC San Diego/UTC area, with half of the project slated for funding by the Federal Transit Administration, Haggerty said. An average of 2,400 riders per day are expected to get on and off the trolley at the Noble Drive station (the closest station to CLJG). Haggerty said that in proposing the current alignment, SANDAG also was trying to “maximize the use of the public right-of-way” (freeway land under the ■ Submit comments auspices of Caltrans,) on the project: “limit takes of private (619) 595-5620 or property” and “make sure that the trolley speed stays up. ■ Info on the $1.7 billion “We’ve also tried to Mid-Coast Corridor balance stakeholder needs on both sides of Transit Project (bringing the freeway,” he said, trolley service to UTC): noting that existing background noise (largely from the freeway) averages 71 decibels. The sound of the trolley passing CLJG would be only about 59 decibels, he said. “Though you will be able to hear the trolley going by, it does not increase this background noise level,” Haggerty said, though adding that noise from a 30-day construction period will exceed 71 decibels. “A lot of that work has to be done at night because of the freeway, in order to close lanes,” he said. “When we know the noise is going to exceed the background noise, we would be willing to relocate folks for those nights.” Haggerty said SANDAG will publish a notice this summer giving the public 30 days to comment on the final environmental document for the project, after which the agency will publish a notice of determination on the project. In late 2014 the Federal Transportation Administration will issue a record of decision, which becomes the final environmental document under the National Environmental Policy Act approval process. If approved, the project would enter the final design phase in 2015, and SANDAG would begin utility relocation and private property acquisition, which includes taking property needed to build stations at Tecolote Road and Clairemont Drive, and from Balboa Avenue to state Route 52 and along both sides of Genesse Avenue (at I-5). Haggerty said SANDAG would also seek community

FROM TOWN COUNCIL, AA1 During the April meeting, trustees will participate in the officers’ election. Each officer serves a one-year term beginning in May, with the option to run for a second term. Outgoing president Greatrex presented the slate – a suggested list of candidates – for officer positions that are voted on at the April meeting by closed ballot, though any trustee may announce an intent to run for a position at the meeting and do so as a write-in. The slate is: Hartford for secretary, Ron Jones for treasurer, De Riquer for second vice president, Glenda Rothberg first vice president and Steve Haskins for president.

Colored lines show where SANDAG has proposed to build trolley tracks across Interstate 5 to service UTC and UCSD since 1995. In November 2013, SANDAG approved moving the route from the blue line south to the green line, largely at the request of Mormon temple representatives. The green line tracks would be just 42 yards from the northwest corner of the Cape La Jolla Gardens condo complex. COURTESY OF SANDAG input on the Nobel Drive trolley station design (and others) this summer. Though one attendee suggested relocating the elevated tracks to a sub-grade level to reduce or remove conflicts with intersections, noise and the alignment, Haggerty said the cost of locating the line below grade would be “tremendously above what this region right now, I think, can afford.” Julie Hamilton, an attorney hired by the CLJG Homeowners Association, asked if SANDAG studied noise levels from 4:30-7:30 a.m. and 9:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. (when the trolley operates but freeway traffic is lighter) to assess whether trolley noise could exceed background noise levels at these times. “That will occur as soon as you get a lull in the traffic noise,” said Steve Wolf, a noise expert hired by SANDAG, who conceded that it is “very possible” the trolley could

“I would like to mention that this is a historical moment in the 64 years of the La Jolla Town Council and, any other board I have worked on,” Greatrex said. “Years ago, we had a wonderful president named Dean Haskins esq. who is Steve Haskins’ father. So this would be our first father-son combo in the history of this council.”

am I getting sick? I had a lot of questions for myself. It was pretty devastating.� Due to his otherwise peak physical condition, doctors were able to put Atwell

on an atypically aggressive chemotherapy regimen. “Normally, you go in and you do three hours in the chemo lounge and then leave ‌ but I was hospitalized for five days straight and they would do a drip around the clock and it would just wreck me,â€? he recalled. By the time his body would regain strength, it was time to repeat the process. He survived and again thrived. Then, early last year, cancer struck again — this time melanoma cells started appearing on Atwell’s shoulders head, ear and lip. This time, he didn’t take the diagnosis lying down, continuing to train through chemotherapy, skin creams and subcutaneous hormone injections. “I didn’t make it a topic of conversation (with my doctors) because they probably would have said I should hold off and not do it,â€? Atwell said of his modified training. “It was much more subdued than normal, but if I couldn’t get out and run I’d at least get on my bike and pedal. I tried constantly to at least do something.â€? As a way to shake the dark cloud of cancer (as he put it), Atwell ran the American


BY PAT SHERMAN om Atwell is the epitome of tough. He runs 100-mile ultra-marathons and competes in grueling Ironman competitions, many days waking before 3 a.m. to run 15 miles or more. After that, he’ll get on his bicycle or swim 45 minutes at Coggan Family Aquatic Center, where he coaches water polo and swimming for La Jolla High School. Then it’s off to his job teaching AP European history at La Jolla High. It’s this indomitable spirit that doctors say helped him take on cancer twice, and live to serve as an inspiration to others. In 1997 Atwell was diagnosed with a rare sarcoma known as a malignant fibrous histiocytoma. Doctors gave him a 25 percent chance of survival. A softball-sized tumor on his hip required the removal of the top of one leg and a portion of his glutes. “I had been racing in triathlons. I surfed a lot, trained a lot. I had 4 percent body fat and was just charging pretty hard,� recalled Atwell, 47, noting that his three brothers — who he said have all made less healthy life choices — have never had a

carry disabled athletes participating in the A5 La Jolla Challenged Athletes race up the stairs at La Jolla Cove so they can continue in the bike portion of the race. Equally important to Atwell these days is demonstrating the importance of armoring one’s skin from the sun’s intense rays. As a young surfer, Atwell said getting his first sunburn of the year was a ritual and a badge of honor. Before he developed skin cancer, he could be found running with his shirt off. These days, he rarely hits the pavement without a hat, sunscreen and long-sleeve shirt. “It freaks me out sometimes. You go running on the beach and you see these people that are still out there laying out with baby oil on,” he said. Not only should a 30 SPF or higher sunscreen be applied generously, but reapplied every two hours — even when it’s cloudy and cool outside. “The sun’s still hitting you and it’s just as powerful as any other time. You can’t go by whether there’s clouds in the sky,” said Atwell, who reminds his swimmers to coat their skin with liquid armor before every practice. “I think he’s really influential with everyone,” said his 15-year-old daughter, Lexi, a La Jolla High sophomore and lifeguard who plays on the girls’ water polo team. “It’s definitely much stricter in our household now. We’re all about that.” ◆ MARCH 20, 2014 - LA JOLLA LIGHT

Cancer Society’s 100-mile Relay For Life at La Jolla High — just one week after completing his last treatment in June 2013. “Ever since, I’ve had it in the back of my mind that the reason I survived was because I was in good shape and I was healthy and fit,” he said. “That’s what gets me up in middle of the night … and makes me want to get out and go after it. I just always want to make sure I’m as fit as I can possibly be, should I ever have a recurrence.” Today, Atwell, as well as his wife Utahna (a breast cancer survivor) are grateful and happily in remission. Atwell gets checkups every three months. “Everything looks good,” he said. “Hopefully, pretty soon (the check-ups) will go to every six months and then once a year,” he said. La Jollan Joan Henderson Brown is a regular fixture at the Coggan pool, and one of Atwell’s No. 1 fans. She noted how, just one month after completing his last round of treatment, Atwell accompanied the La Jolla High boys’ water polo team on a trip to Hungary to compete with some of the world’s top teams and young athletes. Brown says Atwell’s intense dryland exercises are what makes his swimmers and water pool players some of the strongest around. “He’s always on the deck working,” she said. “He just never stops.

He doesn’t cut corners in his life, and he models that to the kids.”


Next month, Atwell will run in a rim-torim marathon at the Grand Canyon (alongside his primary care physician), and is working toward competing in the 135-mile Badwater Ultramarathon in Death Valley and the Ironman World Championship in Kona, Hawaii. In the meantime, he continues his involvement in events benefitting the American Cancer Society and the Challenged Athletes Foundation. Each year, Atwell and his water polo players volunteer to

La Jolla resident Ripples Turquand, 8, tries out a prototype Milkshake Board, a yoga balance board she designed for children and adults, with help and encouragement from her father, Glynn Turquand. COURTESY PHOTOS

Amused and inspired, her father gave her a T-square, particle board and markers and challenged her to design her own yoga balance board. “You can use it to stretch, balance and do yoga,� Ripples boasted of her 4-footlong all-wood board. She said learning to balance on an unstable surface helps build core strength required for surfing and snow skiing, the latter of which she has done since age 4. The board — designed for both children and adults — can also be used to do push ups, sit-ups, planks and other exercises. “My aunt (La Jolla Methodist Nursery School teacher Beth Ruiz) started teaching yoga classes, so I got the idea from her,� Ripples conceded, noting that several classmates at Stella Maris have already ordered Milkshake Boards (which will be available April 1). “Ripples is taking pre-orders,� her father chimed with laughter, noting that he initially visited factories in Shenzhen,


BY PAT SHERMAN second-grader at Stella Maris Academy and a La Jolla High School graduate have turned to the popular online crowdsourcing website to raise money for their creative projects. With help from her father, 8-year-old Mary Turquand raised $3,600 for startup costs needed to manufacture her selfdesigned balance board at a San Diego facility, instead of in China, where she and her father, Glynn Turquand, originally planned to make them. The entrepreneurial father-daughter duo raised the money in just 48 hours through Kickstarter, which claims to have funneled more than $1 billion from 5.7 million donors to help finance film, music, journalism and other projects since its 2009 launch. Mary, better known to friends and family by her middle name, Ripples, got the idea for her “Milkshake Board� last summer while practicing yoga poses on her great-grandfather’s toolbox.

Latin wanderlust Lorena Santana, a Tijuana native who was raised in La Jolla and graduated from La Jolla High in 1990, is hoping to have similar success with her effort to pitch a travel documentary series urging people to reacquaint themselves with the hidden wonders of Baja, Mexico. She has until April 1 on Kickstarter to raise $12,000 needed to develop four episodes of her series, “Barefoot in Baja,� which she plans on pitching to KPBS TV. The project is sponsored by the nonprofit Media Arts Center San Diego, Lorena which means that Santana donations are taxdeductible, said Santana, who attended the La Jolla Playhouse Young Performers’ Workshop in high school, going on to study in UC San Diego’s theater program. An avid traveler and ocean enthusiast who now lives in Mission Hills, but can be found regularly swimming La Jolla Cove and surfing local breaks, Santana said her series is designed to “encourage women to explore and adventure off the beaten path in Baja.�

“Baja has gained a lot of bad press,â€? said Santana, a San Diego Unified School District visual and performing arts teacher. “One of my goals was to turn that around and to show people that Baja is this incredible place — and it’s right next door to us. “I’m not saying go out by yourself,â€? she stressed. “I’m saying that, if you are woman and you’d like to go and travel, it is possible if you take all the necessary precautions and you are educated and you know exactly where you’re going.â€? In her first few installments (which can be viewed on, Santana sniffed out the best tacos in Tijuana and traveled to Guadalupe Canyon Hot Springs, where every campsite has its own private, natural hot springs. “One of my friends from La Jolla High’s husband proposed to her there,â€? she said. “It’s a magical place.â€? Santana hopes to visit more less common destinations in Baja, including Rancho Meling, a cattle ranch at the base of the Sierra San Pedro MĂĄrtir Mountains. “You would never imagine that there’s pine trees in Baja, but the higher up you go, it gets incredible,â€? she said. “It’s like Julian.â€?

Abbe WolfsheimerStutz Former City Council Member, Law Professor & World Traveler Abbe Wolfsheimer-Stutz was a critical thinker, someone who would analyze, investigate and educate herself on matters before making decisions. Whether it was an important landuse vote before the City Council, or mapping out her next world-wide travel destination and itinerary, she would apply her education, passion for the truth, and analytical mind to produce the best result possible. Mrs. Wolfsheimer-Stutz passed away on March 13, 2014, at her home in La Jolla. She was 75. Abbe was born on August 5, 1938, in Chicago, Illinois, to Col. Irving Salomon (a U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations during the Eisenhower administration and well-known local philanthropist) and his wife, Cecile. She grew up in Michigan City, Indiana, before moving to historic Rancho Lilac in Valley Center in 1945 where her education began in a quaint, one-room school house. After attending high school in Escondido, she went on to Goucher College in Baltimore, Maryland. It was there that she met her first husband,

connecting the I-5 and I-15 freeways. Her proudest accomplishment, however, was the establishment of the 92,000 acre San Dieguito River Park and (its managing arm) the San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy, where she remained on the Advisory Board. A few years after parting ways with her first husband, she met Deputy District Attorney David Stutz and quickly fell in love. They were together for several years before finally getting married in 1997. After completing a spirited political career, Abbe turned her passion to travel and writing. She became an author, publishing a fictional novel of wry political intrigue entitled ‘The Whores of St. Joan” which many say paralleled some of the “back room” decisions that can take place in municipalities. When time permitted, she enjoyed working with clay and was quite skilled in the art of ceramics. She was equally talented as an interior designer. Her biggest passion, however, which she carried throughout her lifetime, was that of international travel. With husband David at her side, she explored the world from the chilly Antarctic to obscure tribal lands in Africa. Abbe traveled to every corner of the globe having seen nearly every major site of interest and many sites that were far off the beaten path. She enjoyed seeing wild animals in their natural habitat and took great pleasure on safaris in Africa. One of her fondest memories was when she was allowed to hold and play with some cuddly Panda bears during a trip to China. In addition, she enjoyed cruising and often spent several months or more each year at sea enjoying the sites and

exotic ports of call. As mentioned, Abbe possessed an exceptional, analytical mind, often breezing through the toughest crossword or logic puzzles. Later in life, while researching her ancestry, her thirst for knowledge led her to the discovery of her half-brother, Derek Taylor of Colorado, whom she enjoyed visiting with as often as possible and especially around the holidays. Abbe is survived by her husband, David; two children, Alison and Marc; daughter-in-law, Monica; step-children, Kristen and Daniel; and four granddaughters, Marissa, Sarah, Olivia and Amelia. A private ceremony will be held at a future date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Jewish Family Services. Please sign the guest book online at www. lajollalight.

Andrew “Andy” Andeck 1918 – 2014 Friends and family mourn the loss of Andy Andeck, who passed away on March 7, 2014, but give thanks for the enthusiastic and optimistic spirit which was Andy’s, and the fact that he is now at rest with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! Andy was an active participant in the business, civic and social life of La Jolla and Indian Wells, California. He grew up

in Des Moines, Iowa, and was the son of Casper and Beulah Schenk. Andy had two sisters, Peggy and Polly. He attended Iowa State University and West Point Military Academy, and subsequently graduated from the University of Texas in 1942. Shortly thereafter, Andy served in the United States Marine Corps as aide-decamp to General “Howling Mad” Smith. Andy retired from the Marine Corps in 1946 with the rank of Major. Andy and his first wife, Virginia “Dinnie” Atkinson, resided in La Jolla, California, until the early 1980’s. Andy was President of his own successful real estate firm, the Andrew Andeck Real Estate Company on Ivanhoe Street in La Jolla. During his years in La Jolla, Andy was well-known and popular in local civic and business organizations and Republican Party fundraisers. He served as President of the San Diego Realtors Association and as President of the La Jolla Town Council, while his wife, Dinnie, served as one of the founding members of Las Patronas. Andy and his wife moved to Indian Wells in the early 1980s where he served on the Indian Wells City Planning Commission as well as the Indian Wells City Council. Andy also financed construction of the small prayer chapel located adjacent to the Palm Desert Presbyterian Church in 1984. He has also been a long time active member of the San Diego and Indian Wells Rotary Clubs. With the passing of Dinnie in 1999, Andy married his current wife, Isabel, in 2000. Andy is survived by Isabel; son, Andrew Atkinson Andeck; daughter-in-law, Pamela Andeck; four grandsons, Brent, Greg, Jon and

Michael; great-grandson, Jordan; sister, Polly Ober; and three stepchildren with his wife Isabel, Cathy, Brian and Elizabeth. Andy’s philosophy of life was “to serve God, serve my country, serve my community and serve my family.” A private ceremony will be held in his memory.

Marty Hoeck 1937 – 2014 Marty Hoeck was a true character, start to finish. Born in Potsdam, Germany, on a flower nursery where he learned to love nature. He saw beauty in all that surrounded him and he never lost his childish curiosity. Always wanting to learn more, Marty spent his youth reading about the Old West. He dreamt of coming to America to see it for himself. In 1964, he answered an ad in a German newspaper seeking a foreman for a Carnation nursery in Encinitas, California. He journeyed to San Diego with a 40 lb. backpack, little money, a work visa and adventure in his heart. Upon arrival, he saw the Palm trees and sunny shores, he felt he was home and never looked back. Marty worked a few years as a Nurseryman when realizing he could create beauty by starting

Louis Wolfsheimer, and they married in 1958. The couple moved to San Diego and had two children, Alison and Marc, living most of those married years in Pacific Beach and then settling in La Jolla. Abbe served on numerous local boards, commissions, and charitable organizations and was well-known and respected in social circles. She was an especially strong advocate for the Arts – serving on the board of COMBO (The Combined Arts and Education Council of San Diego County) where she conducted numerous fundraising events for the local arts organization. She also served on the Board of Directors for the Malashock Dance Company since its inception. She was active with the Salk Institute Auxiliary and was a strong supporter of KPBS. Like her parents, Abbe was charitable and philanthropic, helping to fund the creation of the Valley Center History Museum and often giving generously to worthy Jewish causes locally and nationally. In 1968 Abbe attended Cal Western School of Law, passed the California State Bar, and a few years later (in 1974) she became a Professor of Real Property at Western State University Law School in San Diego where she taught for 11 years. Wanting to do more for her community, Abbe ran successfully for San Diego City Council in District 1, where she tirelessly served two terms from 1985-1993. She was a strong-willed environmentalist who often demanded that local developments include the most infrastructure, parks and public amenities possible. Among many other accomplishments, Abbe was instrumental in laying the groundwork for what is now the SR-56

Two men rescued off Black’s Beach


mergency crews came to the rescue Wednesday, March 12, of a hang-glider who crashed onto a steep sea bluff while flying above Black’s Beach and a second man who climbed down the precipice to try to help and got stuck there himself. The initial accident occurred about 50 feet down the cliff near

Torrey Pines Glider Port about 1:30 p.m., according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department. Lifeguards and firefighters were responding to the crash when they got word of the second stranded man, SDFRD spokesman Lee Swanson said. Personnel lowered themselves down to the victims on ropes and

then hauled them back to the top of the bluff. Medics airlifted the hang-glider, who was conscious throughout his ordeal, to a hospital for treatment of a back injury of unknown severity. The second rescued man was uninjured, Swanson said. ◆ — City News Service

he San Diego French-American Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fourth-graders created a mosaic of historical events after a field trip to The Map and Atlas Museum of La Jolla. During their visit, the students became acquainted with a map of San Diego created in 1928 by artist Jo Mora. In appreciation of his work, each student selected one illustration from the map and reproduced it on a 12-inch square of plywood. When the students completed the assignment, the squares were mounted on a large board, with the colorful tiles depicting the history of San Diego, starting from its early settlers to the Balboa Park Exposition of 1915. The work is on permanent display in the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s administration building, 6550 Soledad Mountain Road, where it can be appreciated by all. â&#x2014;&#x2020; â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Emily Sims

He also argued for not letting students take phones to school. In the event of an emergency, the school can reach the student (because, after all, phones aren’t supposed to be out during class). The negotiable facet is when it comes to after-school activities, such as sports, hanging out with friends or any time the child is not in class or at home. The contract can be adjusted according to parent/child negotiations, the ages and parental values.

Teach them that anything they do on a device can be seen Once an agreement is formed, the next step is to instill good judgment. “We want to teach kids that anything they do on a device can be seen. I ask kids if they’ve ever sent a text they wouldn’t want their parents to see — for the most part they say ‘yes,’ ” he said. “They put these things (texts, tweets and photos) out thinking no one will see it. They don’t understand the power of it.” One reason some people feel what they post on the Internet will not have repercussions is the illusion that their identity is hidden. Several anonymous forums (such as and social media apps (Twitter and Instagram) use screen

names, so real names do not need to be used. However, a surprising amount of information can be found by searching for a screen name — and Moffat proved it. He showed a screen grab of all the Google results that came from searching for a screen name, including the user’s address. Further, several apps, such as Twitter and Instagram, have “geo-tags” that indicate where the post originated. Moffat showed an Instagram post that originated less than a mile from the high school. Even with apps such as SnapChat, which allows users to send videos that are deleted within a couple of seconds of being viewed, there are programs that download all sent videos.

Moffat recommended parents set the rule that all apps, screen names, games and social media accounts be cleared with them before they are downloaded. Parents can ask what the app is, what it does, the privacy settings and if their kids know how to block someone. He also recommended parents have access to all their children’s passwords. One idea that came from teen focus group was to write all the passwords down, put them in a sealed envelope, only to be opened when parents feel the need. That way, the child feels trusted and respected, but the parents have access if necessary. If any of the apps are surprising to parents — or have content parents question — Moffat said parents or guardians must not demonize the technology nor the child. “If kids are worried about being punished or having their phone taken away, they won’t talk to their parents or ask questions. If they can’t ask their parents, they will likely get their information from their friends.” The website offers step-by-step instruction on how to remove accounts from mobile devices, which parents may find helpful in some situations.

for documentation, Moffat said. For example, phones that take video can document examples of bullying or harassment in real life. Also, if someone texts or posts something inappropriate, smartphones allow users to take a screen capture to document it. On an iPhone, if a user holds the top and center button at the same time, a screen capture of whatever is currently on screen gets saved. On an Android, the power and home button will take a screen grab. Having that documentation can help determine whether inappropriate online communication is harassment. “If someone posts something mean or harassing and the person responds with something instigative, it’s a fight. If they respond with ‘please stop’ or ‘please leave me alone,’ and the person continues (it’s harassment),” he said. “You have to have proof that you asked them to stop and they kept doing it.” Several parents asked Moffat what he thought was the best age to get a child a smartphone. He answered: “When you are ready to have the talk. That talk. The everything talk. And the best place to have it is in the car, because you don’t want to look your child in the eye when you have this conversation and they don’t want to look you in the eye.” ◆

An apparent electrical problem was to blame for a fire that caused $125,000 in damage to a one-story La Jolla home that sits several houses from the beachfront home of 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, authorities said. The fire at 346 Dunemere Drive was reported at 8:16 p.m. March 17 and extinguished about a half-hour later, according to San Diego fire-rescue spokesman Lee Swanson. It caused $75,000 in damage to the house and $50,000 to its contents but no one was injured, Swanson said. The fire was in an area between an exterior wall and an interior wall in which there was no insulation and flames began venting through the roof, Swanson said. At press time, the official cause remained under investigation, though Swanson said a husband and wife who live there said they were having electrical problems at the house during the day. The Romney residence sits at 311 Dunemere Drive, west of where the fire occurred. — City News Service

his is a copy of the e-mail I sent to David Hicks, Marketing & Communications Manager with SANDAG: The March 13, 2014 meeting at the La Jolla Village Square was attended by about 120 neighbors. This included our neighbors at Cape La Jolla Gardens; SouthPointe; The Cambridge; Woodlands, North; and Villas Mallorca complexes off Villa La Jolla Drive. Other neighbors were also present. In summary, at the end of the two-hour meeting there was a show of hands for how many neighbors did not want the proposed trolley stop at Village Square because of insurmountable concerns to the neighborhood. About 90 percent

The San Diego trolley makes its way through downtown. raised their hands saying “no” to the trolley stop. The reasons are many, including that fact that there is faster bus service already in this area so the trolley service adds nothing but complications for the neighborhood, including additional noise, pollution, lower real estate values for many,

crime, and the list goes on and on. The bottom line is let the trolley pass by our neighborhood and stop at the Veterans Administration, UCSD and UTC where there is a more acceptable commercial area for the trolley to locate the stops. Our La Jolla Village Square neighborhood already has too

many traffic concerns and noise from Interstate 5, the buses and other issues negatively impacting our neighborhood. People who have lived here for years are moving out because of the current noise, and other concerns like stolen cars, break-ins to cars, break-ins to mail boxes, transient people sleeping under decks, and the list is growing. Please don’t add the new concerns that this trolley stop would bring to our neighborhood. Don’t spend money for something that is not needed in this particular neighborhood.

■ Former San Diego City Councilmember, law professor and world traveler Abbe Wolfsheimer-Stutz passed away on March 13, 2014 at her home in La Jolla. She was 75. Wolfsheimer-Stutz was born on Aug. 5, 1938 in Chicago. She grew up in Michigan City, Indiana before moving to Valley Center in 1945. After attending high school in Escondido, she went to Goucher College in Baltimore where she met and married first husband Louis Wolfsheimer in 1958. The Abbe couple moved to San Diego Wolfsheimer-Stutz and had two children living in Pacific Beach and then settling in La Jolla. In 1968, she attended Cal Western School of Law — passed the California State Bar — and in 1974 became a Professor of Real Property at Western State University Law School in San Diego where she taught for 11 years. She was elected to the San Diego City Council in District 1, where she served two terms 1985-1993. She married Deputy District Attorney David Stutz in 1997. A private memorial is planned. ■ The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (MCASD) has selected the New York City-based architecture firm Selldorf Architects to develop the design for a planned $30 million expansion of the La Jolla galleries at 700 Prospect St. The expansion will maximize gallery space to allow for temporary exhibitions alongside galleries dedicated to the museum’s 4,571-piece permanent collection. Selldorf Architects has experience in both cultural projects and

renovations as evidenced by the awardwinning Neue Galerie in New York City and galleries for David Zwirner and Hauser & Wirth among others. MCASD La Jolla will be the firm’s first contemporary art museum and their first project on the West Coast. ■ The San Diego Daily Transcript reports the 1,048-square-foot, ground-floor commercial unit in the La Jolla Marketplace mixed-use condominium development at 7514 Girard Ave, was sold for $990,000. La Jolla Marketplace consists of 14 residential units and seven ground-floor commercial units. The buyer was La Jolla Holdings LLC, c/o The Empire Group, San Francisco. The seller was 7415 Girard Avenue, LLC, a California limited liability company. The unit was originally sold in June 2007 for $598,000. ■ The number of rattlesnake calls to the County’s Department of Animal Services (DAS) has more than tripled compared to the same time period last year. Since Jan. 1, DAS has received 78 calls from the community. Last year, only 24 calls came in during that time frame. Rattlesnakes typically come out of hibernation in the spring and DAS recommends you discourage them from taking up residence in your yard by getting rid of woodpiles, mice and rats. “If you see a rattlesnake on your property, keep an eye on it from a safe distance and call us,” said DAS Deputy Director Dan DeSousa. “We’ll impound the snake and remove it to an area where it doesn’t pose a risk to the public.” The number for the La Jolla animal control agency is (858) 278-9760. ◆

La Jolla Friendly Visitors is a free program under Greater La Jolla Meals-On-Wheels, Inc. It is dedicated to connecting volunteers with senior citizens and homebound individuals within our community. We offer one- to two-hour weekly visits. One does not have to be a recipient of Meals-On-Wheels to participate. We are proud to say that we have provided services to 16 seniors this past year by recruiting/appointing 23 dedicated volunteers. Those homebound individuals have told us their feelings of loneliness are replaced with companionship and anticipated weekly visits. It is truly remarkable to listen to the stories of how this program has made a difference in their lives. As one of our recipients said: “My parents and I feel blessed to have Meals-On-Wheels delivered to our front door, not only because the food is excellent and we need the help, but also because every one of the volunteers delivering the food is so friendly, we feel like we have an extended family. Now, with the La Jolla Friendly Visitor’s program, the feeling of extended family has become even deeper. We are grateful for weekly visits from Friendly Visitor Sarah, who is delightful to talk to. My mother looks forward to




Work will continue on the western-most end of Avenida de la Playa until the summer construction moratorium begins on May 26.

La Jolla Shores utility projects suffer delays BY ASHLEY MACKIN As Sewer and Water Job 809 along Avenida de la Playa in La Jolla Shores continues with repairs to sewer and water lines, it seems the lines of communication could also use some work. At the La Jolla Shores Association meeting March 12, concerns were raised regarding some unexplained and unexpected construction, and changes to the work schedule that were required last-minute. The project has “not progressed as quickly as we thought,” said Steve Lindsay, Senior Construction Engineer for the City of San Diego, addressing changes to the work schedule and the reasons behind it. Workers will replace the 50-year-old storm drain at the end of Avenida de la Playa and 1,300 feet of piping leading up to it, repairing more than 9,000 feet of sewer and water pipes throughout the Shores. The work will now be conducted weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to sunset and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. until the beginning of the summer construction moratorium, May 26. In order to have the necessary work done by then, construction will also take place two blocks at a time, deviating from the pre-approved one block at a time, starting at the western-most end of Avenida de la Playa and moving east. Beginning this week, segments of Avenida de la Playa will be closed. The reasons behind the delay included weather (which turned out to be both helpful and inhibitive), miscommunication with suppliers and other construction projects in the area. Though the clear and sunny weather during most of February and March caused no rain delays, it also brought an influx of beach-goers, which increased vehicular and pedestrian traffic. Additionally, Lindsay reported some supplies came in

Further, SDG&E undergrounding was underway at the same time as Job 809, causing unexpected hindrances. Though e-mail updates are available through the city uses a program to distribute its notices that Gmail automatically captures and stores away. LJSA Chair Tim Lucas, a Gmail user, said he found the e-mails about the project under the “promotions” label. Other issues with communication came when crews went ahead with work that had not been publicized. One resident reported infrastructure related to the project had been installed next to her house with no notification and she cannot use her garage as a result. Though temporary, the resident said she would still

like to have been notified. Another “foul-up” came when crews started cutting into sections of Avenida de la Playa in February, Lindsay said. As reported in La Jolla Light, during the February meeting, Izzy Tihanyi, co-owner of Surf Diva said cement cutting had begun and that the business owners she spoke with were not notified. Christian Malecot, owner of Voulez-Vous Bistro, added that during that time, all his customers had to sit inside due to construction noise, which he called “unbearable.” Lindsay reported that crews were trying to get ahead in their work, and proceeded without notifying Lindsay and his team. Additionally, during the archaeological study involved in the construction project, work took place at the intersection of Camino del Oro and Vallecito, directly in

front of Kellogg Park. Lucas said during that time, Camino del Oro was essentially a one-way street and no one was directing traffic during that time. “A traffic plan was set up for this and was essentially thrown out the window,” Lucas said. “It’s hard for me not to get angry here because we spent two years in mitigation, and I’ve said there needs to be outreach and was assured that would happen. Outreach is not hanging door-hangers, outreach is knocking on their doors and telling people what is going to happen.” If city workers had, Lucas alleges, the team would have realized that some residents will lose parking on their street during construction, and in some cases, front door access to their homes. Promising better outreach and communication, the city team said they would look into parking alternatives for residents and work to get the job done as quickly as possible to avoid further inconvenience. “We will make every effort to try and correct something that will assist the public in gaining more access,” said project superintendent Gary Marty.

In other LJSA news: All eight candidates in this year’s board election were elected and will serve either one or two years terms — although Lucas advises that through the year, positions become available and can be filled on an interim basis. The newly elected members include: Pam Boynton, Janie Emerson, Sue Geller, Ray Higgins, Terry Kraszewski, John Kassar, Brandon Price and Susan ThomsonTschirn. ◆ — La Jolla Shores Association meetings take place at 6:30 p.m. second Wednesdays at 8840 Biological Grade.

SOFTBALL: Canyon Crest Academy Ravens 13, La Jolla Country Day Torreys 7

New head coach leads Country Day Torreys into future

La Jolla Country Day Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Samantha Moothart takes a cut at the plate in the game against Canyon Crest. ED PIPER

BY ED PIPER New Head Coach Lissa Lewis led the La Jolla Country Day Torreys into their home opener on their beautiful home field March 11 against visiting Canyon Crest Academy Ravens. They took their lumps, giving up three runs in the third inning and six in the sixth, falling, 13-7. But in the spring, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hope springs eternal,â&#x20AC;? as the new season lies ahead. Lewis served as an assistant coach for five years. Amrita Assomull drove in two runs with a base hit, and Katie Lyle and Jacqueline Nelson each had two base hits and an RBI as Country Day collected a total of 11 hits. The Torreysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; overall record stood at 3-2, after three wins in four games at the Shamrock Classic Yuma last week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Definitely (weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be) working on our defense,â&#x20AC;? said Taylor Johnson, senior shortstop in comments before

the game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We lost our number one pitcher (Christine Campbell) from last year. She was our starter for four years. And weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to get used to the new pitching.â&#x20AC;? This involves alignments, where to position players. Senior lefty Jacqui Penera started the game for the Torreys, and then Lewis inserted sophomore righty Kayla Magid in the three-run third inning to try to stem the Ravensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; rally. Canyon Crest was able to put together back-to-back hits to the outfield in the inning to take away the 2-1 lead LJCD built in the bottom of the previous inning. The Torreys are scheduled to play four games in three days in the Duds by Dudes annual tournament at Country Day and La Jolla High Thursday through Saturday, March 20-22. Coach Lewis should be able to air out her full roster over the three days, with lots of innings to use everyone.

Catcher Emily Springfield, who was filling in for Johnson at short until she came over from the Torrey basketball team, which was playing in the Southern California Regionals, had a .512 batting average in 2013, with five home runs and 27 RBIâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. She is rocking the ball at a .462 clip through five games so far this season. She already has two homers with five RBIâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Magid had another hit against Canyon Crest and is hitting .500 on 7 for 14. Not too shabby. Jacqueline Nelsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pair of hits lifted her average to .500 on 7 for 14, as well. Katie Lyle had two hits and upped her average to .357. Samantha Moothart scratched out a hit against the Ravens, putting her at .417 with five hits in the young season. Coach Lewisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; daughter Jessica was a utility infielder. She graduated last year and is now attending Northwestern University, though not playing sports. â&#x2014;&#x2020;

La Jolla Country Day comes off a league title, restocked BY ED PIPER La Jolla Country Day School baseball has a lot of one family — the Weisz triplets who play shortstop, catcher and centerfield. As their mom Kimberly, telephoto in hand, said with a smile, “I have the middle of the diamond.” The triplets were born tightly bunched, at 8:30, 8:32, and 8:33 p.m. Under LJCD coach John Edman, they’ll play cohesive, aggressive baseball. Keaton, who starts at short and has made an early commitment to Arizona, said of the Torreys, “We have great team chemistry, and I think as long as we work hard, it will be a great season.” His siblings are Zachary, an outfielder, and Chandler, who catches. Country Day is coming off a season in which the team zipped through the Coastal League last year with a 7-1 record, 24-7 overall. So expectations are pretty high this year. Said Edman, who coaches many of the LJCD players on a travel team: “If our pitching and defense compete like we think they will, this year could be a pleasant surprise (even though we graduated seven key players last year).” The Torreys hosted Vista in the AztecFoothiller Tournament March 12, taking their lumps, 5-3, giving up all five runs in the first two innings. Starter Matt Yandel showed a good curve at times in his first outing, but the visiting Panthers weren’t fooled by his mix of off-speed pitches. After giving up two flyball outs in the top of the first inning, Yandel yielded a double by Josh Cuppett over Zach Weisz’s head that hit the fence in centerfield, driving in a run. Then Matt Ornelia drove in another run

with a solid single to center. Jared Daniels followed with a fly to right off a check swing that rightfielder Alfonso Rivas gloved as he dove for the ball. The ball bounced off the palm of his glove, and the score was 3-0. Pitching coach Dan Padgett called out to Yandel on the mound, “Deep breaths. Relax. Don’t overthrow.” J.J. Arnold, a junior who stands 6-foot-5, came in to throw four scoreless innings, and fellow junior Chris Bee pitched an inning without giving up a run. Arnold drove in a run with a single, as did Rivas,

an early commit like Keaton Weisz to Arizona. Zach Weisz scored on a pickoff attempt that went astray. Jalen King had a pinch-hit double. Rivas, a lefthander, is the ace of the pitching staff. Named Pitcher of the Year in the league last year, he was 4-2 with a 2.50 ERA, with 41 strikeouts in 36 innings. At the plate as a sophomore, he blistered the ball at a .439 pace, driving in 30 runs with eight stolen bases. Nick Lavin, a righthander, is new to LJCD. He went 3-0 last year, with a 3.28 ERA and 18 strikeouts in 21 innings.

Among other position players, senior Brandon Wachs, a catcher/first baseman, hit .346 last year, with two homers and 12 RBI. Of Travis Wilkie, a senior catcher, who transferred from St. Augustine, Edman said: “Travis is an incredibly intelligent catcher who blocks and receives as well as any catcher I have had.” Said Wilkie of why he chose catching years ago: “When I was younger, trying to truly figure out what position I wanted to devote all my time to, a former coach of mine said that home plate points directly at the most important player on the field.” ◆

A Flair for the Dramatic Former La Jolla drama teacher celebrates 100 years with a cast of characters

What brought you to La Jolla? A new opportunity in my career. My religious denomination, African Methodist Episcopal (AME), brought me to La Jolla as Senior Pastor of Prince Chapel by the Sea AME Church.


What might you add, subtract or improve in the area? Pedestrian safety. Frequently, vehicles in the Village fail to yield to pedestrians crossing the street. I would love see people more aware of pedestrians entering the crosswalks. Who or what inspires you? Definitely, my wife, Tracy, and my children. I’m inspired by their sacrifices that allow me to be a Pastor.


BY ASHLEY MACKIN n March 8, the question of the day at the Bird Rock home with Happy Birthday balloons out front, was “How do you know Dorothy?” People were referencing Dorothy Haven, who was celebrating her 100th birthday that day with family, friends from around the world, and some of the many students she taught during her years as a teacher in La Jolla. Answers included “she’s my neighbor,”” LA JOLLA CENTENARIANS “she is a friend of my parents,” “she used to be my landlord” and “she is my step-grandmother.” When she sat down to speak with La Jolla Light, she focused on the history behind the reply, “she was my teacher.”

La Jollans visit agencies that aid women, children BY ASHLEY MACKIN everal women from La Jolla embarked on a trip to India last November to see how the programs implemented by San Diego-based Project Concern International (PCI) are working out. As financial contributors, they checked out the Vulnerable Children program, which establishes “shelter homes” that take in homeless children and teach them skills they can later apply to a job, and they saw how the Women Empowerment Program (WEP) is changing the financial situation for women in rural India. PCI board chair Anne Otterson was one of them. Otterson said that though she takes trips to the many countries where PCI has programs — including Ethiopia and Tanzania — the trip to India was “the most satisfying.” Via e-mail, Otterson said, “In Delhi, (through the Vulnerable Children program) we engaged with young people having a remarkable agility and endurance joyfully pursuing skills that will enable them to climb out of poverty with future


A Family Affair For Molly Eldredge, the trip was a family affair.

During their visits, the daughters each befriended a buddy. During her trip, Eldredge got to meet her daughters’ buddies, whose faces she had only known through picture frames in her daughters’ rooms. “It was such an incredible experience for another mother and myself (whose daughter went to India

Bistro 39’s Parmesan Chicken Bruschetta

Parmesan Chicken Bruschetta features chicken breast coated with parmesan cheese and roasted tomato bruschetta.

BY KELLEY CARLSON s a hotel-based restaurant with a strong local following, Bistro 39 is a melting pot of travelers and area residents. Located inside the Hilton Garden Inn Del Mar, the eatery is a logical choice for those visiting from out of town — a place to relax after a long journey, where they can feast on classic dishes with a California twist in a cozy setting. Yet Bistro 39 also has a loyal, local following, according to Food & Beverage Director Bill Songer. It’s largely known for its daily, seven-hour-long happy hour and people love to stop by and unwind after work, he said. “(We offer) the best of both worlds,” Songer said. During happy hour, there are discounts on beers (local, domestic and imported) and house wines. And there are also appetizers on a menu that’s different from what people might expect, Songer said. “We pleasantly surprise people,” he added. Tops on Songer’s recommendation list are Mahi Tacos with cabbage, jalapeño cream and mango salsa; and Buffalo Egg Rolls with grilled chicken and blue cheese. Other highlights of the bar/appetizer menu include Shrimp Ceviche Tostadas, a trio of small, crispy tortillas with piles of raw, citrus-tinged seafood garnished with cilantro and avocado; and Chef Jose’s Chipotle Cheese, a spicy melted sauce created by Chef Jose Fraire that’s

Guests who opt for a full, sit-down dinner can select from a variety of entrees. Among them are the Short Rib Sandwich on focaccia with pesto, Vermont cheddar cheese, caramelized onions and arugula; Lamb Chop covered with a pomegranate reduction, resting on a bed of rosemary couscous and steamed broccoli; Parmesan Chicken Bruschetta, featuring chicken breast coated with parmesan cheese and

enhanced with roasted tomato bruschetta; and the Mobley Burger, a thick patty with lettuce, tomato, onion and cheese that’s sandwiched in a pretzel bun. Some items can be prepared gluten-free, such as tortillas, pasta and pizzas. There is also a dinner special, whether it has a holiday theme or is a fresh daily offering. Recent examples include the Corned Beef and Cabbage in honor of St. Patrick’s Day, and Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin. As for desserts, one that is often requested is the Deep-Fried Brownie Bites — Ghirardelli fudge morsels that can be dipped in raspberry, white chocolate, caramel and dark chocolate sauces. Another is Chef Jose’s Cheesecake that is made from scratch, topped with pineapple and strawberries. “It’s (the cheesecake) to die for,” Songer said.

A ripple effect Lynn Gorguze said the programs have a ripple effect, providing skills to women and children. “They don’t need funding from an outside source for the program to continue,” she said. “It’s the model of ‘if

Gorguze said many of the volunteers who find homeless children were once homeless children themselves. “These volunteers go to the train station (where the children are living) and encourage the kids to go to the drop-in center where they can get a meal and a shower and

learn a skill. They know what these kids are going through and how to talk to them.” The other PCI program the La Jolla women visited — the Women Empowerment Program (WEP) — trains and encourages women to form independent groups of 15-25 members, who collect money to distribute as they see fit — whether for medical emergencies or for one of them to start a business. “WEP gives them resources to have a

Gorguze said that in addition to seeing the tough conditions for children, other things that took her by surprise included the number of women around age 14 who are married and have children, and the sheer number of people in Delhi. “There are so many people there tugging at your arms, begging or trying to sell things,” she said. “The mass of people is hard to imagine until you go there.” Corton said she was prepared for the crowds, but surprised by how she reacted to them. “I thought it would be difficult; people told me because of the crowdedness and the smell and noise, we’d feel overwhelmed. However, I found it fascinating and more interesting than overwhelming,” she said. For Otterson — who is in her 80s — trips like this provide her with a “perspective refresh.” “I come home after seeing streets filled with trash, no running water and dirt floors, and then I see my alley in La Jolla with white walls and flowers spilling over them, and I realize what a rich life we have in America and we are not even aware of it,” she said. ◆


in 2011 as well) to see and meet these kids. It was a full-circle experience to see what my children saw,” she said. As a mother, seeing the children in these conditions resonated with Eldredge and left her pondering her life back home. “It’s very emotional going into these (shelter) homes and centers and meeting these kids. You think of your own children and ask yourself why are we the lucky ones, with the opportunities we have, while these kids have nothing,” she said. “I wanted to take as many as I could and bring them all home. When you look at these kids with so little, you want them to have every opportunity your own children have.” When they left, Eldredge said she vowed to return with her whole family. She also said she especially appreciated the child and maternal health program, where volunteers go to remote villages and try to educate women — most of whom are illiterate — on the importance of maternal health, immunizations and nutrition.

Let Inga Tell You

Pining for my glory days


ingle mothers working at clerical jobs donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a lot of status in a place like La Jolla (OK, anywhere) but for a few years, there were two weeks a year where I owned this place. I had the official scale for the annual Cub Scout Pinewood Derby, the only scale that counted. For those of you who never had a Cub Scout, the Pinewood Derby in March is the biggest event of the year. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of fancy stuff you can get online now, but when I was running the Cub Scout program, there were only standard issue Pinewood Derby car kits containing a five-ounce block of pine in a car-ish shape, and some plastic wheels and axles. It was your job to turn it into a mean aerodynamic racing machine. Keeping the finished product as close to the fiveounce weight limit as you could get it was alleged to make the car go faster.

1/2 OFF

Every Tuesday*

Hence, the importance of the scale. The cars were raced on a gravity track, several at a time, until the fastest car was determined, which graduated to the regional competition. La Jolla is nothing if not a competitive community. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actually meant as a supervised project simply because tools are often involved but the adult supervision line could get pretty blurred. In fact, someone commented to me at one point that the Pinewood Derby is actually a competition for adults who must be accompanied by a 7- to 10-year-old child. Now, of course, you can easily find internet tips on how to make your car go faster, but back then, there was only Inga-net for parents who needed help. Fortunately, my now-husband, Olof, helped me create Auntie Ingaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Aerodynamic Hints. Even I am fairly dazzled that any document attached to

my name contained understandable instructions about drag, surface drag, departure vortices and (Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m totally dazzled with this one), smooth laminar flow. Reducing drag/resistance (thereby making your car go faster) could be accomplished by cutting your little block into a more aerodynamic shape, sanding it with increasingly fine sandpaper, painting it with enamel paint, and getting the wobble out of the wheels. It was probably not surprising that some of the work would be outsourced. I would regularly get calls at work from secretaries whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been tasked with prep work on their bossesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pinewood Derby vehicle and would inquire, â&#x20AC;&#x153;So just how many times do I have to sand this thing?â&#x20AC;? More than a few had sanded the little plastic wheels into oblivion and were inquiring about replacements. Before I left for work, I put out carefully labeled envelopes of parts, or even whole new car kits. Always feeling bad for the kids who were eliminated early on, a fellow mom, Linda, and I decided that we would make this the kinder, gentler Cub Scouts, probably exactly the sentiment that founder Baden Powell created scouting to combat. Linda and I decided to award every kid a ribbon of some kind on the grounds that even the kids who had never seen their car before the night of the race should go away with something. To this end, we spent an entire evening making 77 ribbons for the â&#x20AC;&#x153;aesthetic judging.â&#x20AC;? (Sorry, Baden.) As we rapidly discovered, there is only so much you can say about a five-ounce block of pine. We sat there with a thesaurus and some brochures from cars Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d looked at recently. The problem was, brochures that described cars I could afford at the time more often had descriptors like â&#x20AC;&#x153;peppy considering its 1.2 liter engineâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;voted least bad in its class by Car and Driver.â&#x20AC;? An appropriate ribbon category would have been Kid

The infamous Pinewood Derby kit Most Covered in Graphite. But back to the scale. For two weeks a year before the Pinewood Derby, a steady flow of dads and kids streamed through my house to use the official scale. During the day, I would return calls to some of these dads during my lunch hour. A snippy secretary would cooly inform me that Mr. Jones was in conference all afternoon and would not be able to take my call. But as soon as I mentioned the word Pinewood Derby, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d cut me off with a frantic, â&#x20AC;&#x153;DONâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;T HANG UP! HEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S ACROSS THE STREET HAVING LUNCH. HE ASKED ME TO COME GET HIM RIGHT AWAY IF YOU CALLED!â&#x20AC;? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never had so much power in my life. (Or since.) From low-class single mom to Pinewood Princess. I had the scale. I had parts. The day after the Derby, of course, my Cinderella life was abruptly over. But FYI: If you need them, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve still got some boxes of extra axels around someplace. â&#x2014;&#x2020; â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Look for La Jolla resident Ingaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lighthearted looks at life in La Jolla Light.

Eat healthy and prosper: National Nutrition Month, Part I “Life expectancy would grow by leaps and bounds if green vegetables smelled as good as bacon.” — Doug Larson


ccording to the World Factbook, as of 2008, 33 percent of the adult American population is considered to be obese (calculated by Body Mass Index of 30 or greater). A poor diet leads to an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, assorted cancers, diabetes, infertility, and alas, snoring. As March brings in a mentality of rejuvenation across the land it is fittingly time to pay homage to National Nutrition Month.

Cocoa for the Cure

Jitter Bug Watch out for caffeine lurking in unsuspected places, including a jar of decaf coffee (which misleadingly has been found to contain low to moderate amounts), non-cola sodas like root beer, energy drinks (be mindful of catch-phrases like energizing, invigorating and perky), ice creams, especially mocha flavors, and our fave, bittersweet chocolate. The higher the cocoa content, the higher also the caffeine, so those who are sensitive to the stimulant choose plant-based carob, reminiscent of chocolate’s flavor and texture minus the caffeine.

Lycopene healing machine Tomatoes are a red powerhouse of cancer fighting lycopenes and flavonoids, along with A, B-complex and C vitamins, potassium and phosphorous. It has been found that cooking tomatoes releases even more lycopene than eating them raw, so make a pot of mighty marinara. Since lycopene is also fat soluble, eat it with some friendly fat. Baked ziti, anyone?

Current studies have shown dark chocolate with cocoa content of 70 percent or higher when eaten moderately (one square daily) is a cardiovascular warrior reducing heart attack and stroke risk by as much as 39 percent, along with having a moderate lowering effect on blood pressure. It’s all thanks to the antioxidant flavonoids that boost flexibility of veins and arteries. There’s more. Not only does bittersweet chocolate redirect and satiate cravings for sweets, salts and fats, it has been found to reduce stress hormone levels, and act as nature’s internal sun protector to put the skids on sun burns. Finally, chocolate is now the new codeine as the chemical theobromine in the treat is lauded as a suppressant that calms the cough reflex in the brain.

Another of Haven’s students — Thelma Reahm (nee Hyder) — said the one lesson she learned from Haven was good posture.

an angle. “It’s the dumbest thing, but it always stuck with me,” she said, adding one trait she most appreciated about teacher Haven was her patience. “She was so patient. She always took an interest in us more than other teachers. Other teachers worked with you in the classroom and that was it. You didn’t get much attention afterward, but not with (Dorothy).” When Haven’s husband returned, she quit her job so she could start a family and raise their two children, Jeri and Carter. She has no biological

grandchildren, but step-grandchildren and step-great-grandchildren. When Jeri and Carter were a little older, she returned to teaching at the Balmer School, with a first-grade class. While there, she experienced what she calls her “only claim to fame.” In 1959, “Dr. Seuss came to my classroom to get some ideas from the children for characters for his books,” she said. “It was important enough that Life magazine covered it.” An image in her scrapbook shows Theodore Geisel (Dr. Seuss) sketching

Haven taught drama and English at La Jolla High School and at the Balmer School (now Wisteria Cottage), before it became La Jolla Country Day School, and then at La Jolla Country Day. While her husband Franklin (now deceased) served overseas during World War II, Haven applied for a drama teacher position at La Jolla High because the previous teacher was leaving to get married. While there, she directed productions such as “Our Town” and

GOLDEN CARE, a non-medical, in-home care agency, strives to improve the lives of seniors and their families


Porsha Vogt knows firsthand how important it is to offer the very best services to seniors. Her aunt Alice had advanced multiple sclerosis and desperately needed a caregiver. Without the help of in-home assistance, she died in her home 10 years ago. “We didn’t know about this type of caregiver service,” Vogt said. “I feel like if we knew about it, she would probably have lived a lot longer.” In honor of her aunt, Vogt strives to improve the lives of seniors and their families by offering exemplary care through her Carlsbad-based non-medical, in-home care agency, Golden Care. “We do care,” said Vogt, who grew up in Rancho Santa Fe and currently lives in Encinitas. “You can trust us.” With a finance degree from the University of Colorado, Boulder, Vogt worked in the finance field for 10 years before changing career paths. “I wasn’t passionate about it at all,” she said. “I wanted something completely different.” From Coronado to Spring Valley, Golden Care services all of San Diego County and even has clients in southern Riverside County. From light housekeeping and meal preparation, to bathing

assistance and incontinence care, Golden Care offers a variety of services. Golden Care’s caregivers are not only employees, but they are all licensed, bonded and insured. All are carefully vetted and go through an in-depth interview process, in addition to criminal and DMV background checks. Most are certified nursing assistants. Hourly and live-in caregivers are available. They are also on call around the clock. “All these phones get routed to our cell phones so someone can be accessible 24/7 a day,” Vogt said. Caregivers clock in on arrival and clock out by calling headquarters on a landline. Caregivers also maintain client binders, which contain comprehensive details of the care and remain in the client’s home. “If there are adult children or someone wants to see what’s going on, they can open this and get filled in,” Vogt said. “Then everyone’s on the same page. “We put a lot of time into our clients to make sure they’re happy. We go above and beyond in everything we do.” Golden Care owner Porsha Vogt. Photo/Kristina Houck

As the Balmer School became La Jolla Country Day School in 1961, Haven went with it, and taught there for three or four years. From there, she worked under the head designer of the San Diego State University theater department. During her own dramatic career, some of which took place alongside her teaching career, she performed in one-woman shows for 20 years and in community theaters.

Of theater today, Haven said she enjoys how people experiment and try new things. However, she said she doesn’t frequent the theater as much as she used to, instead she gardens in her La Jolla home (which her father built in 1950) and walks her dog.

Friends from as far away as Australia arrived, each with a story about the soon-to-be centenarian (her actual birthday is March 27).

SUMMER CAMPS 2014 Is your child ready for summer camp?


nswering these questions will help you determine when your child is ready for camp: 1) What is your child’s age? Children under age 7 may not adjust easily to being away from home. Consider the day camp experience to prepare them for future overnight camp. 2) How did your child become interested in camp? Does your child talk about camp and camp activities on a sustained basis? How much persuasion is necessary from you? 3) Has your child had positive overnight experiences away from home? Visiting relatives or friends? Were these separations easy or difficult? 4) What does your child expect to do at camp? Learning about the camp experience ahead of time allows you to create positive expectations. 5) Are you able to share consistent and positive messages about camp? Your confidence in a positive experience will be contagious. ◆ — American Camp Association

UCSD students Nicole Speciale and Kurt Miller with their work in progress

Let’s Review WILL BOWEN

Student artists open their doors


nce a year, the UC San Diego MFA Visual Arts students open their one-room studio doors to share their art with the public. This year, on March 7, some 42 students welcomed throngs of the curious. Open Studios is the place to go if you’re interested in the offbeat, the quirky, and the conceptual. You won’t see landscapes, still lifes and portraits here. No rocky coasts, flowers in a vase, fruit on a table or swans in a lily pond. And no one judges success by how many paintings they sell. At UCSD, students are exploring the idea of art and challenging its preconceptions. What is art? What could art be? The great thing is that each studio you walk into presents you with a surprise … and some surprises are bigger than others. Student Amber Lundy also works fulltime in the computer security software business, experimenting with her artwork at night. “I will take a switching diagram from computer security software and apply it to human relations,” she said. Because she is also interested in fashion, she’s designing clothing that has a computer built into it. She calls it “Wearable Security.” One dress has technology that senses a physical threat, like, from a mugger, and will shock the person who touches the clothing. Conversely, the dress is also programmed to glow if the wearer likes the touch of another. Music department student Kurt Miller, who plays the clarinet, teamed with art student Nichole Speciale from Boston, to

create paintings that also make music. Speakers are built into the canvas so that the work is extended outward from the two-dimensional canvas by sound. “I am interested in materials that intersect the plane. I like to do paintings that use nails or pins arranged in geometrical patterns because they extend the painting outward. Sound, too, can be used as a medium to extend a painting out into the surrounding space,” Speciale said. Miller and Speciale are creating a large painting that consists of two overlapping coils of copper wire that will have magnets and an electrical input attached to the back. The coils will double as speakers, and the painting will sing out some kind of sine wave pattern. “People are talking about how painting is dead,” said Speciale. “They say nothing new is happening. They say that people who use a photograph to paint a picture

Monochromes by Julian Rogers wow at the Open Studios show are not painters but transcribers. We want to see if we can do something different that might revitalize the idea of painting.” Stephanie Byrd lured visitors into her studio with a 12-foot-tall face of soprano Andrea Green singing opera arias projected on the back wall. The image changed color dependent on the pitch. When green hit, all were fascinated by the ghostly image. Byrd, who is from Atlanta, said she’s interested in video, new media and interactive public art, which is big there right now. “Public art has been receiving a great deal of funding in Atlanta, so, it’s all over the place and everyone is doing it,” she noted. Originally, Byrd’s image was projected out and overhead so that it appeared to hover in space and was even more dramatic. Julian Roger’s studio was filled with large, monochrome paintings — blue, black, brown and purple. Close inspection revealed they were once examples of photo-real landscapes and still lifes, which are what Rogers used to specialize in. “My series was inspired by my father, who was color blind. When I was 6 years old, my dad would try to explain to me how he saw the world through his colorblind eyes,” Rogers said. “These paintings are a reflection of that experience.”

Amber Lundy with her mannequin used for fitting costumes

In Elmira Mohebadi’s studio, something was fermenting. Inside was an old bathtub filled with black water beginning to stink to high heaven. The tub was a prop leftover from a video she did called, “The Witch.” It’s about a girl receiving a ritual witch’s bath of water, soap, lard, dirt, honey and wine. “I am from Iran where there is a strong interest in witchcraft among women. This interest is related to the traditional legends about ‘the jinn,’ powerful whirlwind-like female spirits that seduce men and take away their power.” In Gary Garay’s studio an overhead spinning ball reflected beams of light all around the room, reminiscent of a Robert Irwin “light and space” installation. Garay’s ball was made from small and beautiful pieces of abalone shell glued together onto foam. He worked with a Mexican craftsman to create it. Charles Krause, an abstract artist from New York, was on hand to support his art student niece. Krause said he had his first show on Madison Avenue in 1979. He spent most of the day giving students advice on how they could make their work more of a commercial success. “That’s the next step for these kids,” he said. “They have got great ideas, but they need to make their ideas commercially successful!” ◆

It is said that, in 1941 the Ford motor company produced an experimental automobile with a plastic body composed of 70% cellulose fibers from hemp. The car body could absorb blows 10 times as great as steel without denting. The car was designed to run on hemp fuel. Because of the ban on both hemp and alcohol, the car was never mass produced.

La Jolla Youth Baseball opens its 2014 season



t was a picture perfect day for La Jolla Youth Baseball as president Jim Benham emceed a down-home kick-off to the 2014 season on March 15. Highlights included the National Anthem sung by La Jolla High School senior Vaill D’Angelo (third year running); a ceremonial First Pitch thrown out by Jim Weaver (who played in LJYB in 1950s, managed in the 1970s, and is now parent of twin Pinto players Louis and Alexander); and the official League photo taken on Bronco Field in Cliffridge Park. A big surprise came in the form of a flyover right before the National Anthem. A 1945 Boeing P-17, once owned by actor and racecar driver Steve McQueen, circled the fields on cue, turned on the smoke, tipped its wings to the crowd and then returned to its hangar at Gillispie Field. LJYB has 400 boys and girls playing on 37 teams in five divisions, ranging in age from 5 to 14 years old. As a recreational league, it’s “old school,” where the rules are based on player and skill development first and foremost, compared to the trend toward club and travel sports.
