La Jolla preservationist testifies at hearing on post office sales ■ Task force effort seen as model in push to save icons COMMUNITY: A

District Attorney’s race heats up in San Diego, A1

BY PAT SHERMAN Architectural historian Diane Kane, a member of the Save Our La Jolla Post Office Task Force, was invited to testify on the United States Postal Service’s (USPS) sale of

historic post office buildings, March 11 in Oakland, Calif. A group of La Jollans formed the task force in January 2012 in response to the USPS’s announcement that it plans to sell La Jolla’s 1935 post office and relocate its services. The task force, under the auspices of the La Jolla Historical Society, has thus far succeeded in its effort to prevent the USPS from selling


the post office at 1140 Wall St. (or even placing it on the market). The March 11 hearing, organized

by the President’s Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP), was a response to language inserted into January’s omnibus spending bill that blocks sales of historic post offices until a federal probe is complete. As part of that inquiry, Congress has requested that the ACHP file a report on the disposal of historic post offices (a concurrent,

La Jolla Library supporters seek new members

Permit Review group tables action on two projects, A3

BY ASHLEY MACKIN he definition most people have for the word “friend” probably has a lot of components to it. To name a few, friends care, they’re supportive, they offer input, and they may give money every once in a while. But they get something in return, too. The same applies to Friends of the La Jolla Library, who number about 100. To be a “Friend” of the library is to contribute a set amount every year (starting at $10) to support the library and its many programs. In 2013, members and donations totaled about $24,000. The Friends also receive $4,000-$5,000 each month from the ongoing used book sale they operate at the library. Increasing the number of Friends is a goal for the 2014-2015 board of directors, who talked about some of the feel-good incentives at a March 19 meeting.

Investigation into alleged elder abuse case continues ■ Victim’s family seeks his divorce from alleged abuser Editor’s Note: Though the alleged perpetrator has been named in some other news reports, La Jolla Light is refraining from using her name unless charges are filed against her.

BY PAT SHERMAN San Diego Police are continuing to investigate an incidence of alleged elder abuse and extreme animal neglect in La Jolla that surfaced March 7 when the victim’s family contacted local media. A 58-year-old woman is accused of abusing

Robert Stella, a 90-year-old war veteran and retired state department employee she was living with in his home in the 6600 block of Avenida de las Pescas. Stella’s granddaughter, Emily Criscuolo, said that when the family had Stella removed from his home in February and transferred to a local senior care facility, he was disoriented, malnourished and dehydrated with severe bedsores. They allege the woman routinely tied him to his bed and locked him in his room without food or water. Stella’s home and yard were piled with trash and hoarded items, and overrun with dogs and cats later removed by animal control officers.

SDPD Media Relations Lt. Kevin Mayer said police are investigating charges of financial abuse and neglect (a form of elder abuse, Mayer confirmed), in addition to animal neglect. “The suspect is the caregiver Robert Stella and alleged wife of the victim,” Mayer responded, via e-mail. “These cases can be very complicated and take time to investigate. No arrest has been made at this time. The investigation is continuing.”

Son-in-law, William Redfield (husband of Stella’s daughter, Michelle), told the Light Stella insists the signature on the marriage certificate is not his, and doesn’t appear to be his, though added, “We’re operating right now as if that is legitimate, just because the only thing we can really do now is to go ahead and get a divorce for him.” Stella’s family is attempting to have his alleged abuser removed from the home, though the action could be complicated by the marriage. Weeks prior to the allegations surfacing, the Light received three pages of

unsolicited, type-written answers allegedly from Stella to its weekly “10 Questions” column, in which notable La Jollans answer questions about their lives here. The family confirmed that a telephone number for Stella handwritten at the top of the typed document is that of his alleged abuser. Phone messages left at the number by the Light — which had a woman’s voice on the greeting — were not returned. A response to the question, “If you hosted a dinner party for eight, whom (living or deceased) would you invite?” beings with “Of course, my beautiful, vivacious and charming wife Victoria.”

FROM LIBRARY FRIENDS, AA1 “There are things, like the Friends Reception, that we offer to supporters,” said former membership chair Kathleen Harrison. The annual event is a way to thank friends with food, drinks and entertainment, plus an opportunity to see how the library operates behind the scenes. The free programs provided by the library — such as the yoga classes, toddler story times, writing groups, computer classes, movie screenings with popcorn, and the popular LEGO Club (which has an average of 20 children participating each week) — are all possible because of Friends’ membership funds. For one participant of the Computer Help Lab (11 a.m. Fridays), the free programs are “an absolute godsend.” Although former La Jollan Deyon Vanderweele said she moved to Clairemont six months ago, she still comes to the La Jolla library for its programs. “I don’t have a computer at home, but it seems I can’t live without one. I don’t know what I’m doing technically now, but I will soon,” she said. “Having an instructor right here to answer questions is great.” Of the many events, Head Librarian Catherine Greene told La Jolla Light, “We believe the library has cultural responsibilities to the community, so we want our programs to reflect that. We try to offer things people want to do that are not going on somewhere else nearby. If no one shows up, we know there isn’t the want (and we move on to something new).”

How to Become a Friend ■ Online: ■ In person: Stop by the library at 7555 Draper Ave. ■ Information: (858) 552-1657 Adding that the Friends are “amazingly helpful and very supportive,” she said Friends contributions help make the library what it is. Greene said in the last 10 years, the City of San Diego had to cut library hours and staff. As a result, one full-time library assistant was laid off, the full-time youth librarian became part-time, and operating hours were cut. The Friends rallied together and contributed enough cash to pay the salary of a full-time library assistant and return the part-time youth librarian to full

UC San Diego physics professor emeritus John Asmus is also mentioned in the document, as one of several men Stella met with “for decades” at Harry’s Coffee Shop on Girard Avenue to discuss politics, travel and current events. Asmus, who met Stella in 1964 when they were both employed at General Atomics, met his alleged abuser shortly after she and Stella became acquainted. Asmus said he found the abuse allegations “shocking,” though not entirely inconsistent with a recent decline in his friend’s health and living conditions. “It’s hard to understand that could

Dan DeSousa, a lieutenant with the San Diego County Department of Animal Services, said that on March 2, Stella’s caretakers — including an Arkansas man renting space in the home from the alleged abuser — relinquished five cats and four dogs to animal services, which were in fair condition, with minor medical skin conditions. Stella’s family contacted animal services again on March 7 to alert them to the conditions in the home, at which time they returned and seized another five cats and four dogs (including a Jack Russell Terrier, Pomeranian, Chihuahua and Manchester Terrier). At that time, animal control discovered and removed a cat from the bathroom that had been dead for days. DeSousa said charges filed by animal services will likely be animal neglect, a misdemeanor which carries a sentence of a “slap on the wrist” fine to six months in jail. “Animal abuse is deliberate,” and harder to prove, DeSousa said. “It’s entirely up to the courts what they believe is an appropriate sentence.” Criscuolo said her grandfather met his alleged abuser in 2001, in an alley behind Stella Maris Academy (operated by Mary, Star of the Sea Catholic Church), at a time when he was still overcoming the loss of his wife, Maria, who died from breast cancer. The family says his new suitor moved into the home in 2006, around the same time they allege she took out a $350,000 loan against the house. Though the family says they believed the woman to be his girlfriend-companion and caretaker, their attorney recently learned of a confidential marriage certificate filed in

time. “It’s been really great,” she said. Furthermore, Arlene Powers, co-chair of the Friends Art Committee said the quarterly art exhibitions (and sales) offered in the community room “could not be done without the support of the Friends.” Powers said Friends’ funding paid for the wall covering in the room, where concerts are also held, so that the sound is confined, but art can be hung on the walls, too. The Friends produce and host the art shows. Their next juried exhibition has the theme “The Child,” which has (thus far) received 90 submissions of photos, paintings and mixed media celebrating youth. There will be a free, public reception for “The Child,” 2 p.m. Sunday, April 6 at the library, 7555 Draper Ave. As an honorary entry, an enlarged image of Greene’s father as a child, lying in the grass reading a book to his stuffed animals, will be on display. Upon hearing the announcement, Greene exclaimed, “My father would be tickled!” A board of directors that serve three-year terms manages the Friends’ membership and library programs. At the March 19 meeting, its officers were elected. These are: President Bill Boehm, Vice-President Sallie Warren, Recording Secretary and Assistant Treasurer Jim Stewart, Corresponding Secretary Moreen Fielden, and Treasurer Mark Leinenweber. Former president Susan Middleton will serve as past president. Coming off two consecutive terms, Middleton was honored at the meeting with flowers and a gift from board members. ◆ happen or that the allegations are true,” said Asmus, though adding, “I don’t see how he was physically capable of hoarding of all the stuff and all the animals that were reported.” Asmus said the first time he met Stella’s female companion, she operated a cable access TV show on Time Warner called “Victoria’s Secret Library,” in which she would invite guests to take part in panel discussions on books and other subjects. Asmus would appear when the topic had to do with physics, science or art restoration — his areas of expertise. “He (Stella) was really down in the dumps with the demise of his wife,” Asmus recalled. “We thought his involvement in the TV programs was really a godsend for him — it gave him a new lease on life.” La Jolla real estate broker and mediator Joe Klatt twice appeared on “Victoria’s Secret Library” in 2003 and 2004, once on a panel demonstrating dispute resolution techniques. “She seemed like a very bright, very intelligent, very sincere woman,” Klatt said. “She was well respected, very professional.” However, Criscuolo claims that smoothness is what allowed the woman to allegedly con her grandfather, including more than $100,000 Stella allegedly gave her to turn a book he co-wrote with his late wife into a movie. Criscuolo said the movie never materialized. Redfield claims the woman used her cable TV program to “ingratiate” herself to Stella in the beginning. “She spent a lot of time talking to him about how amazing the book was and how he had to be on the show,” he said. “That’s how the whole relationship started after they met in the alley.” The last time Professor Asmus saw Stella was a year-and-a-half ago, when he picked him up at his home to join the group at Harry’s a final time. Because Stella’s home phone had long been disconnected, Asmus said, he had a hard time reaching him, eventually contacting his female companion. “She got back to me and said next Monday I’ll have Bob at the top of the driveway and you can pick him up,” Asmus recalled. “He was rather feeble at that point. He wasn’t quite his own self but he was fairly conversational. … The yard had lots of stuff in it — that surprised me. … I mentioned it to him. I said, ‘It looks like your garage has overflowed,’ but I didn’t really get a straight response to my question.” Redfield said Stella is walking again and aware of what happened. “He’s 90 years old, so it’s going to be a long, slow recovery,” Redfield said. “He could barely talk (before) … but each day is a lot better. He’s had really good days and he’s had some really upsetting days, because he’s had to reckon with all the damage and the wreckage, but he’s really happy to be away from her. He’s singing again, which was his passion.” ◆


Experts offer advice on spotting and preventing elder abuse Tips for family on spotting elder abuse ■ Stay actively involved in your family member’s life. ■ Take notice of any unusual bank or credit card activity. ■ Take notice of multiple deliveries from online and/or department stores. ■ The suspected abuser tries to isolate the elder, so he or she becomes totally depended on the abuser. ■ New acquaintances of the suspected abuser move in with the elder.

Tips for elders to prevent being victimized ■ Always get two or three opinions. ■ No matter how much you trust or love someone, always read and understand any document before signing it. ■ If you do not understand a document, seek advice from a third-party trusted advisor or attorney. ■ Insist on reviewing your own financial documents yourself. ■ Surround yourself with trusted advisors. ■ Have a trusted third-party review your financial documents to assist you. ■ Beware of door-to-door sales persons who use high pressure sales tactics or offer a deal to good to be true. ■ Never, under any circumstances, give a caller any portion of your bank account number, credit card number or social security number. ■ Sign up for the “Do Not Call Registry.” ■ Shred all material containing your personal and/or financial information before your put it out with your trash. ■ Never leave outgoing mail attached to your mail box. ■ Ask for new or replacement checkbooks be mailed to your bank for pickup and not your residence. —Source: San Diego Police

Additional elder abuse prevention tips Paul Greenwood, head of Elder Abuse Prosecution at the San Diego District Attorney’s Office, provides these tips: ■ Choose a caregiver with caution: Do not assume that by hiring a caregiver through a bonded agency you are guaranteed to get someone who has been checked. There is no current law requiring mandatory background checks for in-home caregivers in California. ■ Keep and inventory of all jewelry: Jewelry is the number one item that is stolen from homes occupied by elders. Not only should your jewelry be kept in a locked drawer, you should have photographs of rare, valuable or sentimental items in a separate location. ■ Conduct a self-credit search two or three times per year: Identity theft is rampant. The only way to have peace of mind is to obtain a credit search periodically from one of the three major credit bureaus — Experian, Equifax and Trans Union. This will enable you to discover whether someone has applied for or obtained a credit card in your name. ■ Every telephone should have caller ID: Seeing if the incoming call is classified as “private” or “unknown” will allow you to be on your guard. Crooks love the telephone. It is their weapon of choice. ■ You will never win the Canadian lottery: If a smooth talking caller says you are the proud winner of the Canadian

Similarly, if you get an email from Nigeria or letter from Madrid indicating that you could receive a substantial amount of money, such communications are always fraudulent. ■ Have your bank send a duplicate statement to a trusted family member or financial advisor: Elders whose sight is failing are at greater risk because they may rely upon the very person who is stealing from them to insure that the financial transactions are in order. An independent pair of eyes that is able to look over bank statements every 30 days will be able to catch suspicious activities in the early stages. ■ Always have a second line of defense at your front door: Either have a locked screen door or a security chain guard at your front door. Crooks will attempt to gain entry to your home by using excuses such as a fake emergency, or false uniforms and badges. By having a second line of defense, you will be able to communicate with the stranger on the doorstep without exposing yourself to the possibility of a forced entry. Never allow any stranger into your home, even if the emergency seems real. Instead, tell the stranger you will call 911. ◆

FROM POST OFFICE, AA1 similar report is being conducted by the USPS’s independent Office of Inspector General). The ACHP has until April 17 to report back to Congress, largely based on testimony it received from Kane and others at the Oakland hearing. Kane said the hearing was specifically organized to assess USPS’s handling of the Section 106 Review process, part of the National Historic Preservation Act, which requires federal agencies to evaluate the impact of all federally funded or permitted projects on historic properties. Since the sale of La Jolla’s post office was announced, La Jolla’s task force has been successful in obtaining federal, state and local historic designations for the Wall Street post office. Kane said the concerns of those invited (largely community stakeholders from California, where the most historic post office sales have occurred) included keeping post offices’ publicly owned art and architecture in the public realm (La Jolla’s post office includes a mural painted in 1939 by one of San Diego’s most accomplished, early 20th century artists, Belle Baranceanu). “There was a lot of energy in the room and a lot of commonalities among the stories,” Kane said of the threehour meeting. “The ACHP was both trouble-shooting and looking for answers. … They asked us several times, ‘What advice do we give to Congress? We need to tell Congress something.’ … They got an earful.” In addition to her prepared testimony, which took the USPS to task for “poor communication, an opaque administrative structure and tight public response deadlines,” Kane spoke of the task force’s “painful” Section 106 consultation with the USPS. After fighting the USPS’s initial assertion that its quasigovernmental status made it exempt from the Section 106 process (and other federal regulations), said Kane, the task force received a “consultant-prepared historical evaluation” and protective covenant language for the Wall Street post office that was so vague the task force feared none of the property’s historic aspects would be preserved

should the building be sold. “They did this boilerplate report and said we’re going to just stipulate that the building is historic because we want to sell it really fast, and we have to do something to protect its historic nature,” Kane said, noting that the USPS initially planned to designate the new owner as the enforcer of the covenant, which preservationists view as a fox guarding the hen house scenario. “The initial package we got was just complete gobbledygook,” said Kane, who has compiled similar reports for Caltrans. “Federal regulations (require that) you have to have a qualified person do this report, and whoever did it was clearly not qualified.” Kane said the report contained no explanation as to why the USPS now considered La Jolla’s post office historic, or which National Register criteria it met. According to the California State Office of Historic Preservation (also represented at the hearing), the USPS approached the agency to sign off on some seven already completed post office sales using this boilerplate protective covenant. La Jolla’s task force eventually provided its own covenant

language and evaluation qualifying La Jolla’s post office for a national historic designation under National Register Criterion A (for its association with La Jolla’s community planning and development) and Criterion C (for its WPAera Spanish Eclectic architecture and its WPA-era lobby mural). The property was eventually placed on the National Register of Historic Places, though to date, Kane said, the task force is uncertain how the building is actually listed, and objects to the omission of its community history as significant. For the building to be sold, Kane said, the USPS must still locate a third party to enforce its protective covenant — something the City of San Diego, La Jolla Historical Society and San Diego-based Save Our Heritage Organisation (SOHO) have all said they have no money for. The task force has recommended the USPS place money in an escrow account for “periodic monitoring” and “some cushion in case you have to go to court to enforce the provisions of the covenant” with its new owner. “The USPS has just flatly refused to entertain any compensation,” Kane said.

No alternative in sight Despite several “scouting” visits to La Jolla, the USPS says it has been unable to locate a suitable site in which to relocate Wall Street’s postal services. Kane said the task force maintains the most desirable alternative would be for a community organization to purchase the building at fair market value and lease the required space back to the USPS to keep postal operations in place (an option USPS representatives have told the Light is unfeasible, due to the building’s awkward configuration). During the hearing, Kane said attendees praised the La Jolla task force as a model in the fight to preserve historic post offices. “That’s how we’ve been able to stay open for two years,” she said. “I took them apart piece by piece and forced them to go back through the process. Essentially, the USPS learned how to do Section 106 on our post office. … They botched it so badly that we’ve tied them up in knots for two years.” ◆

DA faces first challenge for office in 11 years ■ Bonnie Dumanis downplays alleged politicking, focuses on goals, career strengths BY PAT SHERMAN hree-term San Diego County District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis, who was uncontested in her first two bids for re-election as the county’s top prosecutor, has competition this time as she seeks a fourth term in the June 3 primary election — among them, attorney Robert Brewer. The La Jolla Light met with both candidates this month to talk about their plans to protect the region if victorious. A third candidate, Terri Wyatt, a former prosecutor in the DA’s office, did not respond to an interview request by press

A former prosecutor, Brewer has surpassed Dumanis in fundraising with $482,000 to her $341,000 as of last month’s campaign disclosure reports (Wyatt has about $20,000). Dumanis holds the power of incumbency, and the backing of Mayor Kevin Faulconer, San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore and all five county supervisors. Though voters historically turn out in smaller numbers for county-wide races, Brewer said they should not take the district attorney’s race lightly. “No felony case is filed in San Diego County without the approval and review of a deputy district attorney — and there were 17,000 felonies filed last year in San Diego County,” he said. “The district attorney also files 80 percent of the misdemeanors in the county. … The district

La Jolla Development Permit Review Committee

BY ASHLEY MACKIN Two projects came before the Development Permit Review (DPR) committee meeting March 18 — one for a preliminary review and the other hoping for a final review. ■ The preliminary project calls for demolishing an existing residence and constructing a twounit, three-story condominium building at 7452 Herschel Ave. Representing applicant Daniel Linn, development feasibility analyst Joe LaCava started his presentation with a discussion of context. Calling the 7400 block of Herschel Avenue “a unique block in our community,” LaCava said it has the highest residential

Several buildings surrounding the 3,200-square-foot property are high-density condos. Despite the high-density allowance, the number of units and floor-area ratio (FAR) proposed in the new project is

The building is also 30 feet tall with a flat roof to comply with zoning regulations. Because there are buildings on three sides of the lot, limiting what is visible from the street, “we wanted to create something that had a little more appeal on

the streetscape,” LaCava said. Proposed is an exterior of stained-wood siding, a nonreflective aluminum roof of polished or buffed silver color, stucco and trees that are suggested in the Community Plan. To show scale and relationship to the neighborhood, LaCava and Linn presented photos of the street with the proposed structure digitally implanted to scale to show the building’s height as it compares to neighboring buildings in either direction. Linn said the windows could be partially opened for ventilation but would be clouded for privacy. However, for the upper floors, the windows do not face any immediately adjacent neighbors because nothing else is that high, so privacy is less of an issue. However, the DPR committee questioned whether the windows would be transparent or translucent, and requested samples

The applicants agreed to provide the elevation study, as well as a material sample board for the standing seam metal, wood and stucco; and to consider alternatives for the treatment of the cement-paved driveway, at the next meeting. The DPR committee did not vote on the project at the March 18 meeting. ■ Hoping for a final review, a proposed project for two of three units at 7350-7354 Fay Ave. came before the board. The project would demolish both units at rear of the property (7350 and 7352 Fay Ave.) and build one, three-story unit. The single-family residence at 7354 Fay Ave. would remain. However, due to inconsistency with the renderings presented, the project could not garner approval. Members noted that some drawings featured a driveway and others did not. Further, plans mentioned a chimney that could not be found on renderings, which were created after the DPR committee reviewed the project in August 2013. DPR Chair Paul Benton asserted that a licensed architect did not prepare the drawings, which presenter Sharok Eslamian confirmed. The project vote was tabled to a future meeting, pending updated plan renderings. ◆ — DPR committee next meets 4 p.m. Tuesday, April 8 at La Jolla Rec Center, 615 Prospect St.

CRIME NEWS Residents thwart burglary in progress at their Bird Rock home


home invasion and attempted burglary took place approximately 3:30 p.m. March 12, in the 5400 block of Bellevue Avenue in Bird Rock. One of the residents came home from work that afternoon to find an intruder in the house, reportedly filling his suitcases with items to steal, although nothing was taken. After the resident wrestled with the intruder, the burglar escaped to a white SUV parked in the alley next to the home, where a driver was waiting, and sped away. The suspect is described as a Caucasian male, approximately 6 feet 1 inch tall, with reddish “scraggly” hair. The resident recorded the license plate number and gave it to police, who are investigating. ◆ — Ashley Mackin

Art Alive boasts a ‘Spanish’ theme for 2014


ome 120 floral designers will transform famous works of art from The San Diego Museum of Art’s Permanent Collection into exquisite floral displays for the 33rd annual Art Alive fundraiser, April 11-13, at 1450 El Prado in Balboa Park. Valerie Cooper, Sarah B. Marsh-Rebelo and Jacki Johnson-Widder are the 2014 event chairs. Carlos Franco of Green Fresh Florals in San Diego was selected as the Rotunda Designer and will transform the Museum’s Rotunda into a floral experience themed after the gardens of the Alhambra – the Moorish palace in Granada, Spain. Also taking inspiration from Balboa Park’s Spanish Baroque architecture, Franco’s design will bring to life the sights, sounds, and scents of Spain incorporating fountains, citrus, olive, and palm trees, and cascading gardens of roses, jasmine, and bougainvillea. Franco, who was trained in Paris and London, designed the Rotunda in 2006 and 2009, led a floral workshop in 2013, and has created floral interpretations for Art Alive for the last 20 years. The floral exhibition will be open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, April 11, through Sunday, April 13. Admission is free for members, $20 for nonmembers, and free for children age 6 and under.

â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Bonnie Dumanis San Diego County District Attorney seeking a fourth term Arnold Schwarzenegger for violating victimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rights by reducing the prison sentence of a political allyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son by more than half (without giving the family a chance to argue against the commutation). Both Dumanis and Brewer say that, if elected, they plan to crack down on elder abuse, identify theft and human trafficking, all of which are on the rise. Dumanis met this month at the U.S.-Mexico border with Attorney General Kamala Harris (who has

Dumanis said.

Brewer, who underscored his leadership serving in combat during the Vietnam War, and role in successfully prosecuting a deeply embedded KGB spy, said his primary goal will be to â&#x20AC;&#x153;regain the confidence of law enforcement,â&#x20AC;? which he says Dumanis has lost. Dumanis attributed the loss of support to â&#x20AC;&#x153;holding people accountable.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;That includes police officers,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We prosecute where

Dumanis highlighted her officeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role in the prosecution of sexually violent predators, working to craft and assure passage of Jessicaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Law (designed to reduce sexual offendersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ability to re-offend), as well as her officeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role in prosecuting the killer of teenagers Amber Dubois and Chelsea King.

(Police associations are) sick and tired of her (Bonnie Dumanis) being a politician, they’ve told her that, and that’s one of the reasons why they didn’t endorse her in 2010. Then … she’s sworn in and 70 days later she announces the most political thing she could do — she runs for mayor. — Robert Brewer


told her that, and that’s one of the reasons why they didn’t endorse her in 2010,” Brewer said. “Then … she’s sworn in and 70 days later she announces the most political thing she could do — she runs for mayor.” Brewer claims Dumanis’s unsuccessful 2012 mayoral bid and history of making endorsements has politicized the district attorney’s office. (Her endorsements include Carl DeMaio, whom she backed in the 2012 mayor’s race after she came in fourth in the primary, and, more recently, the re-election of San Diego County Clerk Ernie Dronenberg, who has also endorsed Dumanis’ bid for re-election.) Brewer said he believes that, like the U.S. attorney — who is barred from engaging in partisan political activity (including endorsements and fundraising) under the Hatch Act, the district attorney should also not make endorsements. “I will never endorse anyone for any office — ever — when I’m the district attorney, and certainly never run for another office,” he said.

Candidate for San Diego County District Attorney, who has received endorsements from 98 percent of local law enforcement associations Brewer said the district attorney holds an important responsibility to apply state law to politicians. “When you become too close to the politicians, when you become a politician, you create layers of conflicts of interest — and this present district attorney, in 2011, 70 days after she was sworn in for a third term … became what she was supposed to be policing: a politician.” Brewer argues that Dumanis’ mayoral quest precluded the DA’s office from prosecuting disgraced

ex-San Diego Mayor Bob Filner during last year’s sexual harassment scandal. “The entire district attorney’s office was disqualified from investigating him … (and) infected with her bias against Filner because she spent 17 months running against him and because she endorsed Carl DeMaio,” Brewer said. “Not true,” Dumanis maintained. “Endorsing, by it’s very nature, does not require you to recuse yourself or not to

handle a case. In this particular case … I proactively saw that there was going to be a criminal case, way before it got to be criminal. I called the attorney general’s office and the U.S. attorneys’ office so that we could talk about who the best prosecuting agency and the best police agency would be.” Though San Diego Police would normally work with the district attorney’s office on such a case, Dumanis said news reports of potential federal charges against

Filner made the offices of the U.S. attorney and attorney general seem “a more appropriate agency” to pursue the case. “We all decided together that the sheriff, as opposed to San Diego Police Department, would handle the investigation and the attorney general would handle the prosecution,” she said. “We helped with that in terms of giving advice and Mr. Filner was held accountable.”

Exploring the link between obesity and cancer


500,000 additional cases of obesitycaused cancer by 2030. Cancer is already the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second most common cause of death after heart disease, killing more than 585,000 Americans each year. A bulging obesity rate gives it a better shot at becoming the number one killer. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s difficult to say how exactly obesity fits into the cancer-causing equation. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a complex disease. Each cancer patient is different, with his or her own unique biology and environmental exposures. Nonetheless, several biological mechanisms have been proposed to explain the association. â&#x2013; Fat tissues produce excess amounts of estrogen and high levels of this hormone have been linked to greater risk of breast, endometrial and other cancers.

developing diabetes and improves risk factors for cardiovascular disease. Studies of patients who have undergone bariatric surgery to lose substantial amounts of weight show they have lower rates of obesity-related cancers than similar obese patients who have not had the surgery. But unlike, say, tobacco consumption and lung cancer, there is no smoking gun that inextricably and indisputably links obesity to cancer. Not yet, at least. These efforts continue with scores of studies. For example, a team led by Ruth Patterson, Ph.D., director of the Transdisciplinary Research on Energetics and Cancer center at Moores, is conducting a randomized trial testing the impact of weight loss versus metformin (an anti-diabetic agent) on breast cancer recurrence using a design to link changes in metabolic health to breast cancer risk. The study is part of a larger program sponsored by the National Cancer Institute. Eventually, I believe definitive answers will be found, or the steady accumulation of studies linking obesity and cancer will overwhelm any contradictory opinions. In the meantime, researchers from


ore than two-thirds of U.S. adults are overweight or obese, which comes with a long and heavy list of associated health risks, among them: coronary heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and cancer. An ever-growing number of studies show that packing on excess pounds increases the risk for cancer, most notably colon, pancreas, kidney, thyroid, breast, endometrial (uterine), esophageal and gallbladder. The numbers are alarming and likely to worsen. In 2007, the National Cancer Institute (NCI) estimated that 34,000 new cases of cancer in men (4 percent of the annual total) were due to obesity. For women, it was 50,500 news cases or 7 percent of the total. If obesity trends continue, the NCI projects roughly

â&#x2013; Obese people often have increased levels of insulin and insulin-like growth factor-1 in their blood, which may promote development of certain tumors. â&#x2013;  Fat cells produce hormones called adipokines that may abnormally stimulate cell growth. Cancer is fundamentally a disease of cell growth run amok. Fat cells may also directly or indirectly affect other regulators of tumor growth. â&#x2013;  Obese people often suffer from chronic, low-level inflammation, which is associated with increased cancer risk. Indeed, Michael Karin, Ph.D., distinguished professor of pharmacology and pathology at the UC San Diego School of Medicine and a faculty member at Moores Cancer Center, and others have shown that obesity-induced inflammation promotes development of liver cancer, the third leading cause of cancer-related deaths worldwide. â&#x2013;  Other possible mechanisms include altered immune responses and oxidative stress. Does losing weight lower cancer risk? The answer would seem to be yes, but again itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to know with certainty. Research has demonstrated that weight loss reduces the risk of

Town Council’s 2014 financial report solid, no accountant needed Editor’s Note: The La Jolla Town Council had corrections to a front-page story we reported in the March 20 issue about its March 13 meeting. Since the facts were confusing and misleading as reported, we’ve asked the Town Council to submit its clarifications for absolute accuracy. The Light apologizes for any difficulties the story caused and thanks the Town Council for joining us in the effort to set the record straight. — Susan DeMaggio


his letter comes to clarify a La Jolla Light article that reported on the La Jolla Town Council meeting of March 13, wherein it was suggested that the Town Council needed assistance to close its financial books for 20132014. This is incorrect as the Town Council books were already closed at the time of the meeting. We are pleased to report that it was a successful year as we were able to lower our operating costs and achieve success with the membership drive led by our treasurer and president. As a direct result, our net income was higher than it has been in recent years. The Town Council did require a written report on the La Jolla Dancing with the Stars event from the event chair. However, this was a request for a report that would be included in our yearly report to the San Diego City Council, which highlights our activities over the past 12 months. The event-reporting request had no relation to the Town Council’s official financial report to the city. The Dancing with the Stars event was managed entirely by Event Chair Nancy Gardner through her own separate committee with its own Fictitious Business License, bank account, and under a 501(c) (3) (tax exempt) organization unrelated to the Town Council. (Please note that the Town Council is not a tax exempt 501(c) (3) type entity, cannot accept tax-deductible contributions, and handled none of the finances for the event). Financial questions concerning the Dancing with the Stars event must therefore be directed to Nancy Gardner and the 501 (c) (3) entity she contracted with to manage the event. The article also stated that up to $1,000 was authorized by the council to provide accounting services. To clarify, that authorization had nothing to do with the Town Council finances. It was allocated, if needed, to assist the event chair in the preparation of her event financial report, as this had not been submitted to the Town Council board in a timely manner. Such reporting was finally submitted to the council at

the March 13 meeting. As reported by the Light, Town Council trustees did indeed have questions about the event reporting prepared by the event chair at our March 13 meeting, but those questions were solely for the event chair and her event report. There were absolutely no questions on Town Council finances. At the La Jolla Town Council’s April meeting, all trustees will receive a 2014-2015 Budget, as they always do at the start of each yearly cycle. In short, the proposed allocation of funds and the following discussion of finances was focused solely on the event reporting for the La Jolla Dancing with the Stars 501(c) (3) tax deductible event and not the finances of the La Jolla Town Council. Executive Committee of La Jolla Town Council Inc. CINDY GREATREX, PRESIDENT STEVE HASKINS, VICE PRESIDENT YOLANDA DE RIQUER, TREASURER CHARLES HARTFORD, SECRETARY

La Jolla’s water wasters: Look out for complaints! It isn’t fair to those of us who struggle to save water and have lost our landscaping to the elements to find, while driving through our neighborhoods, water GUSHING down gutters at a rapid speed every single day. I’m talking about homes on La Jolla Scenic Drive at Rutgers. Ever notice the water ALWAYS puddled in the intersection and the city crews always repairing the asphalt? Well, it’s from those homeowners who say, “I pay for my water!” Is that justification to the word DROUGHT? Several homes on Via Capri and Senn Way, too, water their groundcover daily, though on north-facing slopes that get minimal sun! Then the water, mud and grass in the gutters on Via Capri (from homes on La Jolla Rancho) have slime growing in it from constant water sitting there growing mosquitoes and waste. If you look, you will see water oozing out of the ground. Come on people ... complain! It’s not their water, it’s our water! It’s a natural element that is becoming more and more scarce. How can it be fair for some to conserve so others can waste? Is it fair that I water my plants with dishwater and have timers in our showers, while those who don’t care can have it run down the gutters for several blocks, every day and every night? Wake up and call the San Diego Water Department to complain. IT AIN’T RIGHT! Call (619) 533-5271 to report Water Waste. Debi Bright 58-YEAR RESIDENT OF LA JOLLA

Rising homeless population in La Jolla is cause for concern In recent months, there has been quite a stir made about the overpopulation of seals and sea lions that have been “threatening” the noses of locals, visitors and business owners. As a La Jollan, who grew up here and is now raising my children here, I can only say that I am much more concerned about the overpopulation of homeless men who have taken up residence in the Village. These transients, who frequently abuse drugs and alcohol, could be unregistered sex offenders or ex-convicts with mental illness. This homeless population has made its headquarters the rear and perimeter of Vons and CVS, in addition to various other streets in town, and we have accepted it. Why is there not an abundance of homeless people in Del Mar? What is that city doing right that WE can learn from? Let’s take lessons from other communities and see if we can create a task force to control this. Let’s raise our voices for issues that truly matter, such as having community safety, not just having our beaches smell good. I also advise any La Jollan who sees any transient exhibiting drunkenness or disorderly conduct to take the initiative to call law enforcement and have them removed. There are places in San Diego for homeless people to live, such as St. Vincent de Paul Village in Downtown San Diego. Yasmine Agheli CONCERNED PARENT Editor’s Note: In the March 20 issue, the Light published the following contact information for residents who wish to report issues regarding transients: ■ Police Department: (858) 552-1631, ■ La Jolla Councilmember Sherri Lightner: (619) 236-6611,

OUR READERS WRITE (CONTINUED) On March 9, ‘Spots’ was named by Sophie Novick, 8, of La Jolla. Sophie was visiting the beach to learn all about the harbor seals when the pup was born. ‘It seemed appropriate to let her name it,” her mom said.

Bicyclists, motorists must safely share the roads ■ I reject the quote adjacent to the photo of the week on page A19 in the March 20 issue. A bicyclist is injured and the caption states, “We need to be ever so careful when riding our bikes in traffic.” This is a classic case of blaming the victim. Positing that bicyclists are interlopers on the road is unacceptable and indefensible. Bicyclists have a legal right to the road and the legal obligation to obey traffic laws. Motorists must respect that right and be mindful of the fact that in a car/bicycle collision, it’s always the bicyclist that loses. We need to share the road. Next time you see a bicyclist remember that person is someone’s father, mother, sister, brother, son, daughter, friend. Treat them with respect, dignity and care. Richard Wolf LA JOLLA

■ I know it wasn’t intentional, but the caption accompanying the injured cyclist in your “Photo of the Week” March 20 was highly inappropriate and incredibly insulting to responsible cyclists. The “reminder” that readers should take from this photo is to be careful as DRIVERS. There is no evidence that the cyclist was not being “ever so careful.” No matter how careful cyclists are, they can be killed by bad/distracted drivers. The cyclist was struck by a motor vehicle, not a cyclist. Drivers need to put down their phones and iPods and give extra care to watching for cyclists, motorcycles and pedestrians. The caption presumes that the cyclist did something wrong (other than trusting his life to nearby drivers). That’s not just unfair to the cyclist, it is infuriating to the rest of the cyclists in our community. Casa Gozo LA JOLLA

I’m writing about a recent great experience for our young daughter, Sophie. Down at the Children’s Pool, we were talking to a La Jolla Friends of Seals volunteer named Tamara, who was very informative about the brand-new seal pups on the beach, and Sophie was very interested in talking with her. Since we live here, but rarely get to the beach, it was nice to stop and appreciate something that many other people, as travelers to La Jolla, stop to see. We realized it is a privilege to live here and be able to just go down to our local beach to see something so awesome. The two new pups that day were so adorable! Sue Ellen Novick LA JOLLA

If this isn’t a waste of taxpayer dollars … On Saturday night, I awoke from what I thought was a dream … to the sound of a wood-chipper? At 2 a.m.? I open my window, and it ISN’T a dream. There IS a wood-chipper going! I walk down the street, and see a work crew with chainsaws, two large trucks and a chipper going full blast. Why? There is a broken Torrey Pine branch laying in a yard! Not on a house. Not on a car. Not in the street. LAYING IN A YARD. And this required waking the entire neighborhood at 2 a.m. for an hour? This couldn’t be done during daylight hours? Now, I realize my first mistake was trying to apply logic to government, but even the dullest civil servant should be able to tell time, or at least look up and see that the sky is dark, ergo, it’s nighttime. Absolutely unbelievable. No wonder they’re so ticket-hungry — gotta pay midnight work crews double and triple time for their follies. Rand Hogen WINDANSEA

American Legion Post 275 selects students for Boys State The American Legion Post 275 La Jolla conducted its interviews and selection of this year’s Boys’ State recipients Feb. 24. Post members interviewed a total of five students — four from La Jolla High

School and one student from The Bishop’s School. School counselors and principals selected the students. Boys State is a summer leadership and citizenship program sponsored by the American Legion for high school students between their junior and senior years. The Boys State programs began in 1937 and are held in each of the U.S. states (excluding Hawaii), usually on a college campus within that state. In general, male and female programs are held separately, but at least seven states (Georgia, Nebraska, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and New Hampshire) host Boys’ and Girls’ State on the same campus on the same week. Selected as recipients to attend Boys’ State were: Michael Penny from La Jolla High School as primary and Nicholas Vastrum as alternate. Also selected, as primary recipient was John Kimmel from Bishop High School. The interviewing panel included: Michael Bradshaw, Post Executive Board Member, Marvin Crouch, Post Second Vice and Jose Payne King, Post Commander. Selected students will travel June 21 to California State University, Sacramento and return on or about June the 28. The two most outstanding students at Boys’ State have the opportunity to be selected for Boys Nation in Washington, D.C. later in the year. ◆ Jose Payne King COMMANDER LA JOLLA AMERICAN LEGION POST 275 EXECUTIVE BOARD MEMBER DISTRICT 22

■ Your March 20 “Photo of the Week’ shows a bicyclist strapped to a backboard and stretcher, neck brace in place, being prepared for ambulance transport. After reading the caption, I get the impression cyclists are being held responsible for car/ bike accidents. The first phrase of the caption is correct: the man was hit while riding his bike. How can you then tell cyclists to be “ever so careful” when riding our bikes? With most car/bike accidents caused by the motorist, seemingly this accident included, it seems far more practical to tell drivers to be “ever so careful.” I don’t want to pour fuel on the discontent between drivers and cyclists, but let’s be real. Yes, cyclists should obey traffic laws,

the same as drivers. I can guarantee, though, that cyclists are significantly more vigilant about their surroundings than drivers are — our lives depend on it. A driver in a car will “win” every time against a cyclist. So, warning cyclists to be careful when riding in traffic is comical. At a minimum, address your warning to drivers and cyclists, don’t single out the underdog in car/bike accidents. I certainly hope the cyclist in the March 12 accident will recover fully and be back on his bike again soon. Ellen Ward LA JOLLA

FROM DA ELECTION, A13 When forming her Public Integrity Unit in 2007 to root out political corruption, Dumanis said she would no longer endorse political candidates. However, she made an exception for races impacting public safety that Brewer said he considers too broad. “Once you make a commitment for no endorsements and then you qualify it, you’re on a slippery slope,” he said, noting that even Dumanis’ habit of endorsing judges could prove problematic. “If that judge gets elected, invariably, (Dumanis) will have employees of hers appearing before that judge. I think the optics of that are terrible.” Dumanis said the DA’s office is not political, and that making endorsements is necessary. “I am in a political office, where I am elected, and whether we like it or not, we have to raise money, as my opponents are, and we have to get endorsements. We also have to endorse if we want to have a leadership role in the

La Jollan endorsements for San Diego District Attorney ■ Robert Brewer: Eric Acker, John Bucher, Candace Carroll, Peter Cooper, Charles Dick, Bob Doede, Charles Grebing, Len Simon ■ Bonnie Dumanis: Barbara Bry, David Casey, Lynn Schenk, Neil Senturia, Philip and Gayle Tauber state on what I consider public safety issues,” she said. Dumanis, who also boasts the endorsement of the San Diego Police Chiefs’ and Sheriffs’ Association and the San Diego Deputy District Attorneys Association, said making endorsements helps her office gain a foothold in Sacramento. Following the lead of Sheriff Gore, Dumanis dedicates someone from her office to work on legislative affairs in Sacramento. “We’ve been very effective in getting laws passed and stopping

laws that would be bad for public safety,” she said. “It’s about relationships, not politics. As the district attorney, I have created strong relationships in Sacramento, in Washington and in San Diego, and those have benefitted the public safety of San Diego.” Dumanis said she believes Brewer’s hard-and-fast noendorsement vow would tie his hands as district attorney. “I’m not sure he’ll be able to get much done. I don’t know of any other DA or any other elected official who does no endorsements,”

she said, noting that the state attorney generals and former San Diego County district attorneys Ed Miller and Paul Pfingst also made endorsements. “My opponent (Brewer), who works for a law firm and is taking money from people in law firms, will have a conflict built in there as well … if he takes money from people who may be defense attorneys practicing in criminal cases,” she said. “By the way, it’s the court that makes the decision — if it’s raised — as to whether or not the office should be recused.”

Brewer also noted Dumanis’ involvement in an ongoing financial contribution scandal in which the federal government has indicted four people — two of whom worked on Dumanis’ mayoral campaign and one who funneled $200,000 in foreign contributions to an independent expenditure supporting her candidacy. Federal law prohibits foreign nationals from donating to U.S. political campaigns. “There could be an incredible number of state violations in those transactions — money laundering, conspiracy, disclosure,” Brewer said. “Again, her office can’t look at them, because she’s in the middle of them.” The answer, Brewer contends, is a change of leadership. “I’m a firm believer in term limits,” he said. ◆ ■ Coming Next Week: An interview with Terri Wyatt, the third candidate for San Diego County District Attorney, in the April 3 issue of La Jolla Light. ■ To read more of this interview, visit

Youth Baseball marks opener with memorable game BY TOM MURPHY La Jolla Youth Baseball

After practicing for a month, La Jolla Youth Baseball players finally donned their authentic Padres jerseys and — lo and behold — played one the those games that will be remembered for a long time. On a beautiful Saturday afternoon, the Morgan Stanley and Mitch’s Surf Shop teams took the Bronco Field in their first meeting of the season and Morgan Stanley got off to a dizzying 10-0 lead after two innings. Down but not out, Mitch’s made a move in the bottom of the fourth with big hits by Diego Solis, Matt Stone and Aidan Canino. Down 12-6, Mitch’s manufactured five more runs off of walks and passed balls. Diego Solis shut down Morgan Stanley’s potent offense with three strikeouts in the top of the sixth inning, and then took the lead in the bottom half thanks to a couple more walks and some aggressive base running. Morgan Stanley tied the game in the top of the seventh with a pair of timely hits. With the game knotted at 13 apiece, speedy Devin Bale beat out an infield single, and advanced to third base following a walk to Noah Brown. With the winning run 70 feet away, Coach Brian Canino conferred with the batter, his son, Aiden. The call is a suicide squeeze bunt that is perfectly executed to score Bale and win the game. These boys did not give up when faced with a 10-run deficit.

Connor Hobbs pitched well and kept Tecolote hits to a minimum, including Gutierrez striking out the side in the second. Merrill Lynch’s pitchers were aided by solid fielding from Alex Goldman, Jesus Mozo, and Wil Buckley. In a seesaw affair, the game came down to the final inning. Closer Connor Hobbs stymied the Tec Red Sox with the bases loaded by striking out one and forcing their cleanup hitter into an inning-ending 4-3 double play by Spence Carswell and Hunter Kates. In the bottom of the last and tied, Merrill Lynch started a two-out rally with back-to-back-to-back hot shots by Carswell, Kates and Stratton en route to a hard fought victory just before the sun set on Tecolote and the Red Sox. Elsewhere on the fields at Cliffridge Park, a special rite of passage took place for about 50 Shetland players who donned a pair of cleats and carried their baseball bag into the dugout for the first time. These kids are as cute as it gets and watching them hit their first baseball off the tee and run to first base is a memory that is etched in every parent’s mind — and digitally enhanced on their iPads. Juxtaposed alongside the Shetland Field are the big kids playing on the Pony Field. They must look like giants to these 5- and 6-year-old players, especially when some of them pitch 75 mph fastballs and hit the ball 270 feet over the scoreboard into the canyon. Standing between these two fields really is a look into the next 10 years for these new baseball families. ◆





SPORTS BASEBALL: La Jolla High School Vikings 3, Santana High School Sultans 2

Arms race is on for La Jolla High Vikings BY ED PIPER Judging from some sparkling pitching performances in the past week, La Jolla High School is well on the way toward making its mark in the Western League this young baseball season. Junior right-hander Tim Holdgrafer, in his second start of the year, gave up only one earned run and scattered five hits, walking none, as he authored his first complete game victory over host Santee’s Santana Sultans 3-2 on March 18 in the Vikings’ fourth game of the annual Bully’s East Tournament. It was Holdgrafer’s second win in two weeks. Six days prior, Luke Bucon, another junior righty, spun a two-hit shutout for five-plus innings, though La Jolla lost 2-1 to visiting Mt. Carmel on a seventh-inning rally against two relievers. Bucon faced only 19 batters, three above the minimum, and needed only 44 pitches in his five full innings. Lefty Sam Schneider allowed only three hits and no runs in pitching five innings

of a 1-0 win over Mira Mesa March 20. This was also Schneider’s second win in the first two weeks of the season. The staff ERA stands at 0.85. The ERA’s of Bucon and Schneider are 0.00, while Holdgrafer’s is 0.54. “We have really lived or died based on our pitching and defense so far this season,” said four-year starter Brett Volger, who plays shortstop and is a closer. “Our pitchers have been doing a phenomenal job throwing strikes and not walking anybody, and letting our defense make the plays.” Said Schneider, “For me, the most crucial factor is being able to locate pitches, which I have been able to do so far.” In the win at Santana, the Vikings struck early, posting two runs in the second inning and one in the third. With one out in the second, Jackson Hyytinen and Weston Clark had basehits, Hyytinen scoring on an error. Holdgrafer bounced to third, with Clark getting caught off the base at third and being tagged out.

Holdgrafer stole second, and then came around to score when Noah Strohl grounded to Sultan shortstop Thomas Logan, who made a miscue. Thomas Zlatic got aboard by another Sultan error, their third of the inning, but was left stranded. In the third, La Jolla added a run on Brett Volger’s basehit, steal of second, then Hyytinen’s single to left. Sultan leftfielder, Brian Parker, mishandled the ball for yet another Santana error, but Volger was already safely headed to the plate. That put the Vikings up 3-0 against starter Alan Strong. LJHS coach Gary Frank said Strong is the ace of Santana’s pitching staff. Holdgrafer gave up a solo homer in the fifth over the 355-foot sign in left-center at Santana High. Frank had the plate umpire check the bat to see if it met BBCOR standards. It did. Santana added a run in the sixth on a base hit, error, groundout and sacrifice fly, to make it 3-2. But Holdgrafer was able to complete the bottom of the seventh

inning, but not without causing some heart palpitations by giving up back-toback hits to put runners on first and second with one out. He then retired Parker (on a groundout to Strohl) and Nikolas Mora, the ninth-slot batter, on a groundout to third. In the earlier game, Bucon was given a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the third when Sean Hofmann led off with a single, moved to third on Volger’s single through the hole to right, and scored on Strohl’s grounder to short, which Mt. Carmel’s Adam Schaffroth misplayed. But in the top of the seventh, Volger, who came in in relief, put a curveball down the middle to the Sun Devils’ Brody Prows that Prows lined to left, driving in the go-ahead run. La Jolla’s (4-2 after a loss to Patrick Henry in the finals of the Bully’s tournament March 22) roster sports only three seniors, with 12 juniors. The seniors are Volger at short, third baseman Alex Eliopulos, and Schneider. ◆



La Jolla sports multiple hitters

Vikings Jake Northrup (8) and Johannes Osypka execute the block on Alapaki Iaea (10) of visiting Kamehameha. ED PIPER Kamehameha, a private school K-12 school, has four of Coach Enriques’ sons on the varsity: Evan, Emmett, Addison and Avery. A fifth son already graduated. Enriques used to coach at Oregon State. “The hospitality has been great. We’ve had a lot of volleyball (playing two high schools a day before the tournament) and a lot of traffic,” Enriques said, grinning. Interestingly, Kamehameha carries a “kahu,” a medicine man or chaplain, as Enriques explained it, on its staff. The medicine man is actually a woman, Ruth Farrell. Said Alex Krzyz, starting libero who subs in and out with the hulking Johannes Osypka, a 6-5 junior, in the La Jolla rotation: “We can improve by working on talking more in games and working on our blocking.” Northrup echoed Krzyz’s point on the need for better communication. Commented Chapman: “The hitters on our team, including myself, are beginning to find a rhythm with sophomore setter Gavin Heap. Our team needs to work on developing a consistent energy level. This will be a game changer in terms of playing very good teams.” ◆


BY ED PIPER Although early in this spring volleyball season, a strength La Jolla is already showing on its senior-less squad is the feature of multiple hitters coming at Vikings’ opponents at the net. In a nonleague match at home against Kamehameha from Hawaii’s Big Island March 20, returning players Jack Chapman, Joe Palatella, Austin Jertberg and Jake Northrup took turns on the front line delivering kills against the visiting Warriors from the outside as well as the middle. Chapman, already a three-year starter in his junior year, looked pretty comfortable in his outside hitter position on the left side, recording 23 kills in the five games. Neither he nor Jertberg, both at 6-foot-1, are tall by volleyball standards. But they can elevate and meet their cross-net opponents at the same level. Palatella, also a returning starter, recorded 21 kills from his spot in the middle. Northrup, a sophomore and newly moved up to the varsity this year, landed 11. Jertberg, a returner but new this year to the starting rotation, added seven kills. Observed Northrup, “It’s good that our kills are spread out between many players.” Kamehameha coach Guy Enriques, a little wearied by the multi-pronged attack from the La Jolla hitters, called out in midmatch to his players, “They have three hitters (at a time). You have to be ready.” Viking Coach Clay Jones’ squad is still honing its attack. La Jolla graduated several seniors from last year’s CIF Division III champions. With a team of only juniors and sophomores this year, the Vikings went down 2-1 to the Hawaiians (here on the mainland for the annual Beach City Invitational hosted by La Jolla March 2122). The hosts fought back to tie, 2-2, before falling in the abbreviated fifth game, 25-23, 20-25, 23-25, 26-24, 11-15. Chapman has 63 kills, at a 39.6 percent rate on the season. Palatella, 6-foot-3, who like Chapman began starting as a freshman, has 52 kills, at 43 percent. Jertberg has amassed 32 kills, with 34.8 percent. Northrup has 26 kills and a 37.1 percent rate. In the first game, won by the Vikings, Palatella skied to record devastating kills for 20-16 and 21-18 advantages. Chapman tapped the ball over the net against an unsuspecting Kamehameha team for 1815, then a hard spike off the block to win the point at 19-16. He closed out the first game with a kill to win 25-23.

Bowtie Kind of Guy La Jolla entrepreneur rides retro style revival

BY PAT SHERMAN ike other fashion conscious, artistic guys in their 20s and 30s, La Jolla Shores musician Zach Barnhorst started wearing bow ties several years ago, particularly when performing on stage. However, at the dawn of the bow


tie’s resurgence as a sporty fashion accessory, he found the selection slim, and decided to design a few of his own. With some tips from his mother, the use of her Singer sewing machine and a basic pattern from a local fabric store, Barnhorst began creating custom bow ties, soon grabbing the

attention of friends and associates. More than two years later, The Bishop’s School graduate is selling his creations through his company, ZB Savoy Bowtie Co., and is poised to release a new line of bow ties, neckties,


What brought you to La Jolla? I’m a native San Diegan. My parents came here just after WW II and were instrumental in developing Mission Valley, so San Diego is in my blood. As a surfer, La Jolla has always been on my radar. When I saw the opening at La Jolla Christian Fellowship, learned of its rich history and met the congregation, it seemed like a perfect fit. I’m grateful they felt the same. What might you add, subtract or improve in the area? Traffic congestion.

TRUE OR FALSE The fastest recorded speed of a kite is more than 120 mph. True! And for more fun kite facts: It’s believed the Chinese invented kites in the fifth century. One legend suggests that when a Chinese farmer tied a string to his hat to keep it from blowing away in a strong wind, the first kite was born. The world record for the longest “kite fly” is 180 hours. Kite flying was banned in Japan in 1760 because too many people preferred to fly kites than work. For centuries, kites have been used in wars and battles for signaling, lifting observers, target practice and dropping propaganda leaflets. The first powered aircraft were large box kites with motors fitted to them. ◆ — Kite Trade Association

Rakiraki raises Ramen rations to rate raves BY KELLEY CARLSON he ramen obsession that began in the Far East has made its way to the West Coast, as restaurants that serve these noodle dishes are springing up everywhere, including San Diego. One that has become quickly recognized is Rakiraki Ramen & Tsukemen, which opened in 2012 in the heart of Kearny Mesa. Among its accolades is an appearance on Zagat’s “8 Hottest Restaurants in San Diego” list in December 2013. “Everyone is finding out what ramen is,” owner and Executive Chef Junya Watanabe said. “It’s (becoming) one of the basic comfort foods in America.” Watanabe developed his culinary skills by shadowing some of Japan’s famed chefs, including Takeo Araki of Jyosui Ramen. For ramen broth, he specifically uses Enagic’s Kangen Water — which is 100 percent alkalized — to help develop a naturally subtle sweetness; combines it with more than 20 herbs, spices and organic bases imported from Japan; and spends hours boiling and cooling it to perfection. Al dente noodles and aburi-style (flame-blistered) meats and additional toppings are added moments before the steaming bowl is brought to the customer. There are no “secrets” in the preparation, as everything is assembled in an open kitchen before guests’ eyes. Ramen isn’t restricted to soup bowls at Rakiraki. There’s also the California Ramen Burger, featuring a protein patty of choice (beef, pork, chicken, turkey or veggie), lettuce, tomato, spicy mayo and a fivespice soy sauce, sandwiched between a ramen noodle “bun.” It’s accompanied by sweet potato fries dusted with powdered sugar, and some patrons opt to pair their meal with Japanese beer, sake or Kenwood Vineyards wine. The restaurant also offers tsukemen, known as “dipping ramen,” in which triple-extra-thick noodles are dipped into a rich soup base that’s in a separate bowl. However, Rakiraki isn’t all about ramen.


Rakiraki’s Original Ramen contains noodles, chicken broth, green onions, bamboo shoots, crushed sesame, nori dried seaweed and a choice of pork or chicken.

Menu Recipe

Each week you’ll find a recipe from the featured ‘On The Menu’ restaurant at / menurecipes

■ This week’s recipe:

Rakiraki’s Rice Bowl It has additional, Japanese cuisine on the menu, including curry and specialty sushi rolls. One notable “roll” is the Spicy Tuna with Crispy Rice, which is actually squareshaped pieces topped with small rings of jalapeño peppers and tiny dollops of Japanese mayonnaise. Another non-ramen option is the donburi, a type of rice bowl that contains meat, fish, vegetables or other ingredients that are simmered together and then served over the grains. In addition, there are nearly a dozen “starters,” including Chinois Custom Gyoza — dumplings filled with vegetables and pork that can be dipped in ponzu sauce. For a special deal, Rakiraki offers a $8.95 lunch combo between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. It includes the signature original ramen, plus a donburi rice bowl or sushi roll, with optional addons. (Note: A bowl of original ramen alone is $7.75.) Guests who still have room left in the tank and are craving something sweet can walk through the restaurant to Watanabe’s Angels & Hearts Harajuku Creperie for Japenese-style crepes. The batter for the thin pancakes is poured onto a flat, circular hot plate and spread evenly until it’s cooked. It’s then spread with dessert-style fillings of the customer’s choosing — one delectable combination is bananas, strawberries, Nutella, whipped cream, mochi vanilla ice cream and a crispy, thin chocolate cookie — and then rolled into a conical shape and eaten like an ice cream cone. ◆

Through an artist’s eyes, darkly: ‘Red’ comes to the REP


John Vickery plays artist Mark Rothko and Jason Maddy his fictional assistant in ‘Red,’ opening April 4 at San Diego REP April 4. SANDRA SMALL played both Romeo and Macbeth at La Jolla Playhouse in the 1980s, and whose Broadway credits include originating the role of the villainous Scar in “The Lion King.” Vickery divides his time between LA and Canada, where he performs at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival. This will be

his first appearance at the REP. “It’s an interesting challenge for me, at this point in my life,” he said. “’Red’ is really a psychodrama between two guys, the old and the new generation, and when I first read it, I thought: whoa, this is very applicable to me! I’m about the age

Rothko was then, and I know what it’s like to feel like you’re losing your powers, can’t do the things you used to. The challenge is: how to present this to an audience.” There were other challenges, too, Vickery said. “A lot of the play is talking about art, and I have to make it come off as deeply felt, without sounding ponderous. And there’s an awful lot of technical stuff we have to do — priming, mixing paints, climbing up to reach the canvases. We have an artist coaching us; we want to get things right.” Vickery had never met Michael Arabian before, but knew his reputation. “I didn’t audition for him; we just had a long meeting and talked about art. We got along, and knew we could work well together,” Vickery said. The same good feelings came up in the first reading, when Vickery met Jason Maddy, the young actor playing Rothko’s assistant. “I turned to him and said: ‘You’re gonna be great!’ “ Vickery looks forward to uncovering more layers of Rothko, and presenting his larger-than-life-size character onstage. “It’s been almost 30 years since I worked in San Diego,” he said. “It’s nice to be back.” ◆ ■ IF YOU GO: “Red” runs matinees, evenings through April 27 at The Lyceum Stage, San Diego REPertory Theatre, 79 Horton Plaza four hours free parking with theater validation).

BY LONNIE BURSTEIN HEWITT n 1999, San Diego-born playwright John Logan first hit the big time with his screenplay for “Any Given Sunday,” directed by Oliver Stone, with a highprofile cast including Al Pacino. Ten years later, with Oscar-nominated screenplays for “Gladiator” and “The Aviator,” under his belt, his play “Red,” about abstract artist Mark Rothko, was produced in London, starring Alfred Molina. It moved on to Broadway, winning a Tony for Best Play in 2010, and other awards. Now, at last, this acclaimed drama is coming to town, opening at the San Diego REP on April 4. Last September, the REP presented another artist-centered piece, Herbert Siguenza’s one-man tour-de-force, “A Weekend with Picasso.” “Red” is a piece of a different color, a two-man powerhouse that plumbs the depths of an artist’s psyche and creative process. “This play feels like a spiritual séance,” said Sam Woodhouse, artistic director of San Diego REPertory Theatre. “It begins and ends with the image of Rothko staring out into the audience at one of his paintings, trying to hear what it says to him.” The director of “Red” is Michael Arabian, a newcomer to the REP but not to the world of theater. He is especially known in Los Angeles, where he directed a multiaward-winning production of “Waiting for Godot” at the Mark Taper Forum in 2012. Playing Rothko is John Vickery, who

figures, such as “The Tom Robbins,” “The James Joyce,” “The Bukowski” and “The Hemmingway” (the later festooned with skull and cross bones). Recently, Aerosmith frontman and former “American Idol” judge Steven Tyler took a liking to ZB’s “The Blondie,” a pink bow tie with white polka dots.

Barnhorst was invited to participate in a “gifting suite,” just prior to the 2014 Grammy Awards. While there, he met and placed his product in the hands of Tyler and celebrities from LL Cool J to Macklemore. “It’s crazy. They walk around with a giant duffel bag and hit each one of our booths,” he said. “There were probably 17

or 18 booths, from Gibson guitars to a really high-end women’s shoe line.” The giveaways can pay off should celebrities be seen wearing or using a company’s product. “They’re trendsetters in the world,” Barnhorst said. “People keep their eyes on them, so it’s a great opportunity as a

suspenders, wallets, scarves and other fashion accessories for hip young gents. “The bow tie has long been a statement of conservatism, but I don’t think it is anymore. It can be a less formal, more casual piece that says something about your personality,” said Barnhorst, 37, who worked as a music producer-engineer and songwriter in Los Angeles before returning to La Jolla (for acts such as Unwritten Law, 311 and Pepper). The bow tie’s resurgence in popularity, he said, is part of a larger reverence among younger adults for early 20th century American fashion and culture — from craft cocktails to swing, roots and big band music. “There’s a whole movement of respect for the vintage,” he said. “It’s just a nod to an era that our generation all missed out on. It gets romanticized in our heads and so you lean towards it and want to be a part of it.” Barnhorst, largely known as “ZB” to friends and fans of his band, ZB Savoy and the Chivalry, still sells the first style bow tie he made — a brown tie with white polka dots called “the original.” The collection — which sell for $39 to $44 each — now includes fanciful designs and fun names paying homage to literary

“We always wear ties for thanksgiving,” she said, adding that she’s given up any hope of getting her sewing machine back. “I gave him one for Christmas so I could get mine back,” she said, with a laugh. “He didn’t like the one he got for Christmas so he kept using mine. Now mine is broken and he started using the one he got for Christmas.” These days, local seamstresses do most of ZB Savoy’s sewing, though Barnhorst still sits down to sew a sample or fill a lastminute custom order. At 10 a.m. this Sunday, March 30, he will attempt to set a Guinness World Record by tying the largest bow tie in history during the CicloSDias bicycle event in Pacific Beach (see info box on opposite page for details). His band, ZB Savoy and the Chivalry, will also perform

The bow tie has long been a statement of conservatism, but I don’t think it is anymore. It can be a less formal, more casual piece that says something about your personality.

this material left in San Diego,” Barnhorst B9 chimed. Though tying the 20-foot-long bow tie will be a feat, learning to tie the regularsized accessory is a breeze, he said. Each product box includes eight-step instructions. “I can now tie these with no mirror in a matter of seconds,” he said. “It has become just sort of second nature.” However, product packaging cautions customers not to don the product too fastidiously. “If your tie isn’t a little bit crooked,” it reads, “why would that pretty girl help you straighten it?” In the meantime, ZB can be found performing in one of his trendsetting ties 6-9 p.m. Wednesday nights (when not on tour) at Table 926 restaurant, 926 Turquoise St. in north Pacific Beach ( ◆ MARCH 27, 2014 - LA JOLLA LIGHT

Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Review WILL BOWEN

University Art Gallery show conjures aliens, extraterrestrials


encrypted writings when you thumbed through pages of books, such as Nausea, Maria Sabin, The Invisible Man, and a Superman comic book, sitting on the shelf in the alcove attached to the exhibit. But you were absolutely sure they were there because you heard the sound of their spacecraft landing, captured in the deep tones rolling out of three speakers, which creaked and crackled the music of an actual earthquake recorded by Scripps Institute of Oceanography scientists. Gallery attendant Arturo Hernandez said many people strode into the gallery and then turned around and walked back out because they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see any paintings on the walls. The one work (a huge mural) hung from the ceiling, is a copy of a mural that will be painted by Blackburn on a stretch of old abandoned highway out in the desert in an area frequented by border crossers from Mexico.

Mary Walling Blackburn mimics an alien calling in for a tow. Patrons were given small mirrors to hold in their hands and look at a captured reflection of the ceiling artwork, which consisted of strange, cloud-like figures. Blackburn said this is the method people once used to look at ceiling art in the great cathedrals of Europe. One visitor put down a pattern of several mirrors on the floor to capture an image of the mural. One art patron, Sam Agrabathy, laid down on his back on the floor in order to look up at it. In the gallery back room, videos of Blackburn interviewing people who claim

to have had encounters with aliens (in places like Turkey, France and the California desert), were running on a video loop that could be viewed as you sat on a bench and listened with headphones. In an amusing video, Blackburn takes a ride in a desert dwellerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pickup truck with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Flying Saucer Towing and Repair Serviceâ&#x20AC;? stenciled on his truck door. Blackburn and the driver go to a special phone booth where stranded aliens call him and she mimics a call. The truck driver keeps frozen berries in his refrigerator, because that is what aliens reportedly crave.


he University Art Gallery in UCSDâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mandeville Center was oddly â&#x20AC;&#x153;hauntedâ&#x20AC;? on March 13 for the opening of â&#x20AC;&#x153;My Strangest Stranger,â&#x20AC;? a show by visiting artist Mary Walling Blackburn, up through May 9. The show wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t haunted by old-time ghosts, the likes of which haunt the Whaley House in Old Town or the Hotel Del Coronado, but rather by aliens and extraterrestrials. Though unseen, they were somehow summoned, and seemed to ooze out of the woodwork and slither their way into the innermost fantasies and fears of patrons. You could sense their presence through hints of shadows revealed in the glow of the single, large industrial spotlight that illuminated the interior of the unlit gallery. You could hear them talking, as an overlay to the distant sound of patrons conversing. You could read their

The show is a metaphor for how we organize our perception of the unknown, the strange, and the different. Curator Michelle Hyun explained, â&#x20AC;&#x153; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;My Strangest Strangerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; engages the psychic and performative aspects of extraterrestrial encounters in areas adjacent to both natural and national borders. Mary Walling Blackburn attempts to plumb ways in which our perception of these visitations overlaps with the paths and behaviors of expatriates â&#x20AC;&#x201D; ourselves as the Other, the Alien, the Extraterrestrial, the Strangest Stranger.â&#x20AC;? Gallery attendant Hernandez said â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we were putting up the mural, Blackburn asked me, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;What do you think of aliens or extraterrestrials? They may not come from outer space, they may come from the center of the Earth â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or they might be right inside of you!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? In connection with the exhibit, patrons were given a copy of the magazine Pastelegram. The issue, titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Extra Earth Analog,â&#x20AC;? is modeled on the Whole Earth Catalog. Pastelegram editor Ariel Evans attended from Los Angeles, where she is working on her dissertation on photography of the 1960s. She noted, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mary Blackburn is a brilliant artist who thinks things carefully through.â&#x20AC;?

Three speakers rumble the sounds of an earthquake. Evanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assistant, architect Josh Conrad noted, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Blackburn traveled around the world to meet people who claim to have encountered extraterrestrials. But the show also speaks to all the immigration going on around the world, which is mixing things up. There are so many people from different cultures around nowadays that people are getting confused, disoriented and angry. How we make sense of this new world is the pressing question.â&#x20AC;? Art patron Agrabathy shared, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like the other day. I was walking to my car and I heard two girls speaking Chinese.

Ariel Evans and Josh Conrad with their magazine, Pastelegram, in front of the gallery. PHOTOS BY WILL BOWEN

Then I went to Wal-Mart and a guy was speaking Arabic on his cell phone, and two others were speaking an African language as they put M&M candies into their shopping cart.â&#x20AC;? Trey Majors said he was confused by the show. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My opinion, as an outsider, is that I have no idea about what is going on in this gallery. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand it at all.â&#x20AC;? Computer science graduate student Ali Asgari stopped in to check things out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like the incomprehensibility of the exhibit. I like that it is incomputable. It reminds me of what they call â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;round off,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; errors in mathematics or the idea that the real

numbers from 0 to 1 are not countable,â&#x20AC;? Asgari said. â&#x2014;&#x2020; â&#x2013; IF YOU GO: Viewing the show at dusk is recommended. University Art Galleryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday, 11 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday and Friday. Choreographers Eric Geiger and Anya Cloud will lead dance improvisations based on the show, noon-1 p.m. April 8, 15, 22, 29 and May 6, a final show runs 5:30-7:30 p.m. May 9 at the gallery; appointments to interview exhibit participants can be made at (858) 534-2107 or

High energy fuels Cygnet’s ‘Spring Awakening’


pring Awakening” is a rock musical based on the controversial 1981 German play by Frank Wedekind. The play was banned at that time for controversial content. The rendition unfolding at Cygnet Theatre in Old Town has music by Duncan Shiek with book and lyrics by Steven Sater. Set in late-19th century Germany, Wendla Bergmann (Taylor Aldrich) opens the show with an outstanding rendition of “Mama Who Bore Me.” Her ire is represented in her actions even if one misses it in the words. Wendla wants to know what a woman has to do to conceive a baby, but mom skirts the issue with silly answers. At school, the teenage boys are feeling their testosterone. Melchior, played with super power by Dave Thomas Brown, is all about challenging the intolerance of school and society. He doesn’t hesitate to stand up and defend his friend Moritz Stiefel (Charles Evans, Jr.) when the teacher chastises him for misquoting a line. The cast of seven males and six females all perform marvelously. Their timing is

angrily trying to conceal their frustrated feelings about sex. The play is also about parents and teachers who play a huge role in how the kids handle their lives during the jarring teen years. Opening on Broadway in 2006, the play won eight Tony awards including Best Musical, Direction, Book, Score and Featured Actor.

Eat healthy and prosper: National Nutrition Month, Part II


The Main Squeeze While a cup of green tea au naturel packs a punch of antioxidants known as catechins, a Purdue University Study has shown that a squirt of lemon or other citrus juice added to the tea ups the ante to not only reduce cancer risks, but boost heart and brain functions.

We now have a complete classified advertising self-service and payment system on our website! From items for sale, to rental and transportation needs, to garage sales, announcements and services, to obituaries and fictitious business name notices, and more.

In a separate bowl whisk honey, yogurt, oil or butter, eggs, blossom water and extract until smooth. Incorporate flour mixture and blend well. Pour batter into prepared pan and sprinkle nuts and seeds on top. Bake 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes clean.

D-Day Studies have shown a strong correlation between Vitamin D deficiencies and such conditions as types 1 and 2 Diabetes, stroke, heart failure, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, periodontal disease, and assorted cancers from breast and prostate to colon and pancreas. So amp up hose D’s with 15 minutes of rays a day and fatty fish three times a week, especially wild caught salmon, Atlantic herring, sardines and mackerel, along with organic eggs, tempeh and tofu, fortified dairy and cereals. From the Peanut Gallery Statistics have shown peanut farmers to have disproportionately high rates of cancers, probably because the crop is heavily laced with pesticides and subject to a carcinogenic mold called aflatoxin.

Where possible, buy organic or choose alternative nut butters like heart-healthy almond, walnut or sunflower seed. Gone to Seed Pumpkin seeds aka pepitas are a mother lode of heart-healthy fatty acids, protein, iron, magnesium and zinc, being a good friend to prostate, bones and joints, while bolstering the immune system. Since pepitas are low in allergens, they have a wide range of appeal, especially for the peanut allergic and sensitive. But always buy raw over roasted as the processing damages the fats in the seeds, which can lead to a build up of arterial plaque. Prune Away When fruits are commercially dried, most of the time they lose precious nutrients, including Vitamins B and C. In addition, they shrivel into a high concentration of fruit sugar or fructose. So pick fresh over dried. What’s Bugging You? In this country, it is estimated that the average adult unwittingly consumes about a pound of insects a year from such sources as poorly washed produce (in restaurants and at home), along with allowable USDA levels of insect fragments in an assortment of commercially prepared foods. The presence of ladybugs on various fruits and veggies, however, is a good sign of natural, organic farming. ◆ — For additional recipes, e-mail or visit



La Jolla office of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties at the top of national market — again ■ Manager cites high-caliber agents, strength of La Jolla market for continued dominance FROM BERKSHIRE HATHAWAY REPORTS

For the second consecutive year, the La Jolla office of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties has been honored as the No. 1 ranked office nationwide for its sales volume. A Pinnacle award winner, the La Jolla office has ranked in the top five for sales volume for 14 straight years, out of the company’s network of offices in North America. Led by Nicki Marcellino, manager and vice president of the San Diego County region, the office has ranked No. 1 in La Jolla for its sales for 14 years running, for all brokerages providing residential services in the area. “With deep local ties and many years of experience in the La Jolla market, the services that our

team offers our clients are unparalleled,” Marcellino said. Said president and CEO David M. Cabot, “Nicki is known for her ability to help new agents unlock their potential and seasoned professionals grow their business. She has embraced a philosophy of service to her agents, predicated on the importance of providing them with the tools they need to ensure their clients have a positive experience during their transactions. This has enhanced our company’s reputation and allowed us to consistently increase our market share.” Marcellino added: “The work ethic

of our team has been essential to our success, plus the La Jolla market will always be strong. When you consider that five of the top six sales in the county last year took place in the 92037 ZIP code, it’s clear that our luxury buyers and sellers value the lifestyle here and believe in the long-term potential for the region.” Under Marcellino’s leadership, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices expanded its presence in La Jolla last year to include an additional location. “Having two offices here allows us to provide an even quicker and more effective response for our clients with interests in the area,” Marcellino said.
