n Officials fear pup found resting in a La Jolla hotel chair might be part of a ‘starvation’ trend By Pat Sherman and Ashley Mackin An employee of Pantai Inn on Coast Boulevard discovered an unexpected guest lounging in a chair on the hotel’s dining patio early Tuesday morning, March 26 — a roughly 8-month-old California sea lion. “The person working here overnight saw something on the security camera, went out and saw that it was a baby sea lion,” guest services agent Veronica Covert told the La Jolla Light. “We checked the security footage and it came over (from the beach) at about 5:45 a.m. and sort of

Mt. Soledad memorials honor Jewish chaplains, Buddhist army veteran By Pat Sherman a Jolla poet and artist Frieda L. Levinsky is grateful to be alive. Levinsky was just 8 years old when her family fled the tiny town of Belz, Ukraine (then a part of Poland) as the Nazis made their advance in September of 1939. A nun who worked on her father’s farm offered to hide her family. “My parents said absolutely not, because Hitler would find out and kill all of the people in the convent, and then he’d kill us — so we ran,” recalled Levinsky, now 81. The family fled first to Rava-Ruska, Poland (also now a part of Ukraine) where Levinsky’s mother had relatives. The Soviets then sent the family and other Jewish people to seek sanctuary in Siberia, where many died of starvation or disease, Levinsky said. “We would mix grass with flour to make pancakes,” she recalled. “We were lucky we weren’t sick enough to die, because people were dying all around us.” Though Levinsky, her brother and parents survived the Holocaust, other relatives did not. Her aunt, one of the few people to escape Auschwitz concentration camp alive, lost her mother and siblings to the genocide.

L Frieda Levinsky reflects on the service of 14 Jewish chaplains memorialized on a plaque to be installed atop Mount Soledad.

Elected officials and community organizers line up outside the Wall Street post office to speak about its pending sale. City Councilmember Sherri Lightner called the USPS’s recent notice a “bullheaded, bureaucratic bungling of the highest order.” Pat Sherman

By Pat Sherman As elected officials met in front of the Wall Street post office March 28 to denounce a notice by the United States Postal Service (USPS) that it is proceeding with its planned relocation of services offered there, the La Jolla Light has learned that local real estate broker Paul Lafrenz is handling the sale of the building at 1140 Wall Street. According to CBRE commercial real estate’s website, Lafrenz, a CRBE first vice-president, specializes in locating “the right project for the right buyer.”

The Save Our La Jolla Post Office Task Force is hoping that “right buyer” will be the La Historical Society or a similar community group sympathetic to preserving the historic post office — and not a private developer. San Diego Congress members Susan Davis (D-53) and Scott Peters (D-52) jointly introduced legislation that would give communities across the country (including La Jolla) the right of first refusal to purchase their post office buildings if placed on

Bird Rock resident upset over city’s hesitancy to repair street n Lightner to address infrastructure as part of new council committee

By Pat Sherman It has been four months since Joseph Chalmers asked the city about repairing a heavily-traveled stretch of Forward Street east of La Jolla Boulevard. Chalmers wrote to District 1 City Councilmember Sherri Lightner: “Several streets in much less need have recently been resurfaced in the Bird Rock area. … Even now cars swerve to avoids cracks and holes in the crumbling surface, creating a hazardous driving condition.” An inspection of the street by the La Jolla Light found more than five blocks of deep craters and fissures in the street. On Dec. 10, Janie Hoover, a representative from Lightner’s office, told Chalmers via e-mail that the stretch of Forward Street in question is scheduled for two different infrastructure projects — a sewer pipeline rehabilitation project to

begin in November and be completed by October 2014, and a sewer pipeline replacement project scheduled to begin August 2015 and completed by September 2016. Hoover told Chalmers the street would be evaluated for resurfacing upon completion of the projects, in 2016. Chalmers responded, “Four years Sherri seems a long Lightner time for the city to be risking a liability that could exceed the cost of resurfacing.” Though the city’s Streets Division patched several of the Forward Street potholes near a roundabout at La Jolla Hermosa Avenue, many of the worst, deepest potholes were left untouched. “It’s too bad it’s a nip and tuck, but I guess it’s better than nothing,” Chalmers told the La Jolla Light, upon learning that patches were scheduled. A representative for

Lightner’s office assured Chalmers that her office would “continue to monitor the situation to see if there are other short-term, costeffective fixes that can be implemented prior to the upcoming scheduled infrastructure projects.” A 2012 San Diego County Infrastructure Report Card prepared by the American Society of Civil Engineers downgraded San Diego’s surface transportation from a C to a D+. The city’s parks and recreation facilities also fell from a B-minus to a C. The reason the county’s surface transportation grade decreased, the report found, is “primarily due to the assumption that planned public transportation improvements are based on a 45 percent contribution from state and federal sources. Based on current economic conditions, the report says that assumption may be “overly optimistic.” “We already see the effects of reduced funding with our local roadways not being maintained (and) the condition of our highways starting to deteriorate,” the

report states. Lightner is vice-chair of the San Diego City Council’s newly formed Infrastructure Committee. Asked to respond to a variety of questions about her work on the committee and plans for improving La Jolla’s infrastructure, her representative referred the La Jolla Light to committee Chair Mark Kersey for answers. “Council President Pro Tem Lightner, of course, will coordinate with Councilmember Kersey to ensure that the communities of

District 1, including La Jolla, will have ample opportunity to provide their input on infrastructure priorities,” Lightner representative Jennifer Davies responded, adding that it is “premature” to divulge the “specifics on which projects should be priorities in La Jolla.” Lightner also e-mailed the following: “I look forward to working with Councilmember Kersey, my committee colleagues, the mayor’s office and the community to ensure that we have a work-

able and common sense plan to begin to tackle the city’s infrastructure needs so that we can deliver the roads, parks, libraries, fire stations and other amenities that all San Diegans deserve.” The Lightner plan In a Jan. 23 memo to Kersey, Lightner said her top committee priority for 2013 is to develop a five-year capital improvement program plan, which she said should include input from the mayor, independent budget analyst, city staff, community members and other stakeholders. The plan should included deferred and routine maintenance needs, a list of unfunded and future projects and identification of viable funding sources, she said. In the memo, Lightner said that within the coming year the committee should identifying funding for the construction of the Torrey Pines Corridor Project (a top priority infrastructure project in La Jolla, according to the La Jolla Community Planning Association). n To suggest additional infrastructure repairs and needs in La Jolla, contact Sherri Lightner’s office at (619) 236-6611.

FROM Sea Lion, A1 sat next to the chair for a little bit and then propped itself up on the chair and made itself at home. It stayed there for a few hours until SeaWorld could come. “We get plenty of seagulls,” Covert added, “but it’s the first time a baby sea lion has wandered over.” SeaWorld rescuers arrived at about 9:30 a.m., and found the 27.5-pound, female pup dehydrated and malnourished. At press time, the female pup was on the mend at SeaWorld’s Animal Care Complex, where it was tube-fed and given fluids upon arrival. It was scheduled to receive a full examination once its condition had stabilized. Monica DeAngelis, a marine biologist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), told the Light that an unusual number of sea lion pups rescued recently off the coast has led NOAA to declare the trend an “unusual mortality event.” “Sadly, the number of pups stranded off the (Southern California) coast is not typical for this time of year,” DeAngelis said. “We suspect the animals are starving, but we don’t know why they aren’t finding the food. My agency is investigating.” SeaWorld Director of Communications David Koontz said that more than 90 percent of the approximately 150 rescued animals in its care now are sea lion pups. Though the sea lions are being rescued from as far south as Imperial Beach, Koontz said the majority of them are being discovered along the coast from La Jolla north to Oceanside. SeaWorld has rescued 246 sea lions “and counting” since the beginning of the year, Koontz said. “Our animal rescue team is rescuing a dozen or more (sea lions) on a given day,” he said. “Most are pups that were born last summer and weaned from their mother in the last three or four months.” Koontz said the pups are dehydrated and

malnourished and about 10 to 20 pounds below the weight they would normally be at this point in the first year of their lives. SeaWorld has not observed the same problem with adult sea lions, leading rescuers to believe that there is no problem with the food source, only its availability to pups. One theory is that the fish they feed on could have moved to deeper waters, Koontz said. The pups get both nutrition and hydration from the fish they eat. “It’s kind of a double-edged sword,” he said. Upon arrival at SeaWorld, the sea lions are tube-fed until they are able to eat solid fish. Once it is determined that a pup is strong enough to survive on its own, and has gained enough weight, it is placed on a transport boat and released about 10 miles off the coast, in an area where there are other sea lions or a known food source. Koontz said SeaWorld staff drew blood from the sea lion rescued at Pantai Inn and found nothing wrong with it. It is currently in stable condition at SeaWorld’s rehab facility, he said. “Our goal is never to release an animal too early,” Koontz said, noting that given the high number of sea lions currently under its care, SeaWorld would neither be prolonging or abbreviating the animals’ stay pending NOAA’s findings (Koontz said in a prior interview with the Light that it is not SeaWorld’s policy to make the animals they rescue dependent on humans). However, he said “We have no anticipation that this is going to let up anytime soon.” Pantai Inn employees said it’s believed the pup made its way up from the beach by hopping up more than 50 cement steps on the opposite side of Coast Boulevard. A representative from SeaWorld said seal lions have an amazing ability to maneuver steep rock outcroppings and other obstacles on land. A few years ago SeaWorld rescued a sea lion that had made its way inland to the parking lot of Chevy’s Mexican restaurant in Del Mar.

Mathematical modeling to predict lung cancer spread

Research Report By LynnE Friedmann

T

he same sort of mathematical model used to predict which websites people are most apt to visit shows promise in mapping how lung cancer spreads in the human body. Employing a sophisticated system of mathematical equations known as a Markov chain model, researchers found that metastatic lung cancer does not progress in a single direction from primary tumor site to distant locations, which has been the traditional medical view. Instead, they found that cancer cell movement around the body likely occurs in more than one direction at a time. Researchers also learned that the first site to which the cells spread plays a key role in the progression of the disease. The

study showed that some parts of the body serve as “sponges” that are relatively unlikely to further spread lung cancer cells. Other areas were identified as “spreaders” for lung cancer cells. The research team includes experts from the University of Southern California , Scripps Clinic, The Scripps Research Institute, UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center, and Memorial Sloan-Kettering in New York. The study appears in the journal Cancer Research. News release at http://bit.ly/ZRrOps Pinning down pain An international team of scientists, led by UC San Diego School of Medicine researchers, says a key protein in Schwann cells — the supporting cells of the peripheral nervous system — performs a critical, perhaps overarching, role in regulating the recovery of peripheral nerves after injury. The discovery has implications for improving the treatment of neuropathic pain, a mysterious form of chronic pain that afflicts over 100 million Americans. Neuropathic pain occurs when peripheral nerve fibers (those

outside of the brain and spinal cord) are damaged or dysfunctional, resulting in incorrect signals sent to the brain. Perceived pain sensations are frequently likened to ongoing burning, coldness, or “pins and needles.” Efforts to explain the causes and mechanisms of neuropathic pain have focused upon peripheral nerve cells themselves. The new study points to a surprisingly critical role for Schwann cells, which release a protein with signal-blocking, antiinflammatory properties. When deficient Schwann cells failed to produce this protein, impaired neurons remain impaired and acute damage may transition to become chronic damage and lasting neuropathic pain for which there is currently no effective treatment. The findings appear in the Journal of Neuroscience. News release at http://bit.ly/16YzlqP A better predictive fisheries model In the early 1940s, the California sardine fishery utterly crashed and researchers are still seeking the answer as to why. For decades the practice in ecosystem studies has

been to look at one factor at a time (such as climate change or overfishing). Unfortunately this piecemeal approach of viewing data in isolation can lead to misguided conclusions. A new study led out of Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego concludes the forces behind the sardine mystery are a dynamic and interconnected moving target. They used a mathematical technique, developed at Scripps, called “convergent cross mapping” which takes multiple variables into account thus avoiding misleading, or “mirage,” determination. Mirages occur when variables spontaneously come and go or even switch from positive to negative. Ecosystems are notorious for doing this. By contrast, convergent cross mapping avoids the mirage issue by seeking evidence from dynamic linkages between factors, rather than oneto-one statistical correlations. The findings appear in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. News release at http:// bit.ly/10WDJUA Lynne Friedmann is a science writer based in Solana Beach.

Things not to overlook on a final walk-through

Our sales contract states the final walk through a few days before the closing is to make sure the home is in the same condition as when you bought it. I like to also think of this as a time that you might be able to meet the seller and get a little more detailed information about the house. Maybe about the sprinklers, appliance manuals, certain light switch functions, etc. Other items you might check are: 1. Had you requested any repairs and were they completed properly? Were there any warranties with the work done that you should get copies of. 2. All items that were included in the sales price are present. 3. Screens are in place. 4. No plants or shrubs have been removed from the yard. (This happened to me, I moved in a few weeks and later noticed that a lovely plant had disappeared from the side yard. The gardener told me the seller had him dig it up and put it in a pot for her.) 5. Garage door openers, common area keys, house keys, mailbox keys. How will you get these? 6. It is always wonderful if you can do the walk through after the sellers have moved out. That is not always possible though. But it is good to verify that the sellers are taking all personal items especially the old paint cans in the garage.

Museum of Contemporary Art to remove sick palm trees test — soil and dead palm fronds — was not sufficient. Pat Nolan, a supervising plant pathologist with the county, said chemical poisoning is difficult to deduce, and pathogens often can only be detected from live material at the crown of the tree. Handelsman said the worst of MCASD’s palms would likely be removed sometime this year. “We don’t have the answer yet as to what will replace them,” she said. “It is our intention to do a postmortem on the trees when they (are removed), to the extent that’s possible.” Officials at St. James By-theSea Church across from MCASD said queen palms removed from its facility last year were dying of pink rot fungus. “I’m not sure we’ll ever know what really happened other than the fact that 40 beautiful queen palms all died within months of one another,” Handelsman said. “Our arborist thinks this is rare for something like pink rot.” MCASD did not say whether it had filed a police report.

University of California farm advisor David Shaw said these palms in front of MCASD look like they have been poorly maintained. Although poisoning may be one cause, Shaw said he would not rule out: problems with irrigation, drainage or container size; improper fertilization; or changes to the root zone. Pink rot fungus could likely infect trees in this condition, he said. Pat Sherman

By Pat Sherman The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (MCASD) on Prospect Street will remove a row of dying palm trees that the museum’s consulting arborist said he believes were poisoned. Though the arborist did not conduct a lab test, he determined that the trees’ symptoms were consistent with poisoning last August, based upon his site inspection, 35 years in the field and input from museum staff, said MCASD Marketing Manager Rebecca Handelsman, via e-mail. “One morning last summer, our facilities team discovered white powder around the base of all the trees,” Handelsman said. “The shrubbery died off almost immediately, within a week. After that, the palm fronds started to turn yellow and drop off. A couple months later, we found an oily substance splashed across the base of the trees.” The La Jolla Light attempted to have a test conducted by the San Diego County Plant Pathology Lab, though the provided material available to

FROM Post Office, A1 the market. However, whether that bill is heard at the committee level and ultimately proceeds to Congress for a vote largely depends on North County Congressmember Darrell Issa (R-49), who chairs the House Oversight and Government Reform committee (which has legislative jurisdiction over the USPS). On Monday, a spokesperson for Issa and the committee told the La Jolla Light via e-mail that “Chairman Issa supports the sale of the La Jolla post office to a nonprofit entity, including one that would be willing to leaseback part of the facility to USPS, and has already informed USPS of that fact. USPS has the authority to do so under current law.” Davis and Peters told the Light last week they have both spoken with Issa about their legislation and the pending post office sale. “I think he’s got bigger plans for the postal service than just this post office, and part of that may be losing some real estate, but nothing that the community’s proposing would interfere with that,” Peters said. “He’s been fairly open in my discussions with him, but I think he’d want to see the details on this. He wants fair market value, and that’s what the community wants to offer. There really is not a fight here.” However, Davis said her office just received word from a contact at the independent U.S. Postal Regulatory Commission that the prospect for La Jolla preserving postal services on Wall Street is “discouraging.” Part of the problem, she said, is that the USPS is not actively courting or considering community input.

If they just move forward and do what they need to do throughout the country, then, obviously, from their point of view, it’s a quicker process.

“We think that it can be a win-win for everybody — if, obviously, they have to make the same rules for everybody.” Davis said other communities in California that have considered purchasing their post offices have contacted her office, though they’ve run into problems, “partly, I think, because they don’t have as active and involved a community (as La Jolla).” The 1934 Wall Street post office building was recently added to the National Register of Historic Places. Though the designation affords the building an extra layer of protection, it is no guarantee that the building won’t be demolished, said task force Vice-chair Joe LaCava. “Ultimately the fear is that it will be sold to a private holder who will figure out a way around the historic designation and tear the building down,” LaCava said. “That would be the greatest tragedy in all of this.” Though the emphasis of the task force was to pursue negotiations with USPS, bring elected officials into those negotiations, and apply pressure in a way that builds consensus, when all other options have been exhausted, LaCava said the task force will pursue litigation as its “last recourse.” “Whether we take a collective action to pursue litigation or whether we do it as an individual (community) remains to be seen,” he said, noting that La Jolla’s suit could be strengthened by pooling information and experience with communities facing a similar loss of their post offices. LaCava said he is guardedly optimistic that the recent relocation notice mentioned that the USPS is considering leasing back a

portion of the building from the buyer to maintain postal operations there (a strategy advocated for by the task force). “We do celebrate that,” LaCava said. “However, things can change. The lease can be fairly short to give them more time to find something (else). “I take some comfort that there’s not a ‘for sale’ sign out there right now, but I’m also not unrealistic (about that possibility) that a sign could show up next week after they go through the appeal process.” During the rally, District 1 City Councilmember Sherri Lightner called the USPS’s recent notice a “bullheaded, bureaucratic bungling of the highest order.” “We have pleaded with the postal service to slow down and explore the opportunity of selling the post office to an established community group with the promise of leasing back the property at a nominal fee,” Lightner said. “Who could say no to that? Well, apparently the U.S. Postal Service can. It is so short-sided and misguided that it takes your breath away.” Peters said he would appeal of the post office’s recent action. Meanwhile, USPS cannot sell the Wall Street building until it has found a site within a one-mile radius in which to relocate Wall Street’s retail operations. “I am hopeful that (the USPS) did acknowledge what we told them a year ago, that you can’t really find another location in La Jolla that will meet your economic requirements or your space requirements,” LaCava said. “They’ve had over a year now to find it and they haven’t successfully done that.”

Professional’s in Coins, Currency & Precious Metals

By Ashley Mackin he seals at Children’s Pool, while tending to exhibit typical seal behaviors, are more acclimated to humans than other seals around the world: n Lifting parts of their body into the air or laying on their sides is simply done for temperature regulation. n Closing their fins as if they were clasping their “hands,” is done for the same reasons humans stretch.

Population profile n Between 100 and 300 seals haul-out at the Children’s Pool, though that number depends on the year, DeAngelis said. n About 40 pups are born each pupping season, and births typically occur on land. n DeAngelis said she suspects that during pupping season, there are more females than males at Children’s Pool. “It looks like it is just full of females and pups and a couple of odd ducks that don’t seem to have a pup. We don’t know if they are males or non-pregnant females.” n Males would be at Children’s Pool waiting to breed. When females are done nursing, they take a break to build their strength back, and then once again are ready to mate. n The amount of rest needed depends on the age of the seal. Like human babies, seal pups need more rest than juveniles and adults. Pregnant females also need more rest than when they are not pregnant. n Seals spend about half of their day resting, and seals can rest on land or in the water, so adult seals would not likely drown. In the water, they bob in the ocean with their heads above water and their noses in the air. A young seal pup that has yet to be weaned could drown if out at sea for too long, but it is not because they cannot swim or bob, but because they would lose energy and starve, DeAngelis said. Leaving Children’s Pool n When not at the Children’s Pool, seals are likely to be foraging for food. There are times when they travel to the Channel

misinformation abounds. In the interest of setting the record straight, La Jolla Light reached out to seal expert Monica DeAngelis with NOAA for all the information we could gather.

SPECIAL REPORT

3rd of 3 Parts Islands, though it is not known how regularly they travel back and forth. n Juveniles travel further and more often for what scientists think is an exploration of their new independence, out of curiosity, or in their search for food. “We suspect juveniles would extend their range a little bit farther because they are not breeding at that time, so there is no call back to the natal site,” she said. While they typically stay within 15 miles from shore, juveniles have been known to travel more than 300 miles away. n Seals do not hold their breaths for very long or make long dives. The average recorded time is about five minutes, though the longest recorded dive (where the seal was continuously under water) was 31 minutes. n When it comes to legally moving or shooing seals away, the only statutes that justify it do not apply at Children’s Pool. Under the Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA), a person could legally shoo seals away for any of the following reasons: the health and welfare of the animal, if it’s a nuisance animal, or the safety of the human is in jeopardy. “As the owner of a boat, you can enforce a non-lethal deterrent measure to shoo it off or preclude it from hauling-out,” DeAngelis said. However, in most cases, NOAA is notified ahead of time to make sure hypothetical efforts are legal. “So we already know about it and then we ask they provide a report on how effective that was and what the problems are,” she said.

FROM Seals, A10 Fish life at Children’s Pool n While seals eat small reef fish and squid sometimes eaten by bigger fish, retired California Fish and Game marine biologist and consultant Doyle Hannon said he would not expect Children’s Pool harbor seals to have an impact on San Diego fishing. “It may help increase fish production. Any time you harvest a stock of fish, that stock of fish tends to repopulate,” he said. “When you fish down a stock, or animals eat some of those fish, then there is a niche available and so those fish will tend to reproduce to fill that niche.” Hannon added that as long as the predator population and prey population are both at carrying capacity, the relationship is in balance. However, “If you have an overabundance of seals, then you could have overfishing, where they would be taking more than what would be sustainable, so they would drive that stock down,” he said. If the fish numbers were to increase, the predator population would eventually go up as well. It’s a very closely tied ecological relationship.” n The seals also eat more than fisherman could ever catch. People at Children’s Pool n People who unintentionally scare the seals and cause them to flush might be subject to fines or investigation. Penalties would depend on their knowledge of the area and whether the incident is reported to NOAA. “If it’s a tourist, who has no idea and who

n DeAngelis said the reason so little is known about harbor seals is that they are difficult to study. “Not impossible, just difficult,” she said, especially in an urban environment where it is hard to determine why something happened — whether weather is a factor or people, from a scientific standpoint, “It’s hard to get a good solid answer.” n The long-term effect of the seals living in urban environments is also unknown, which DeAngelis said might be a good thing. “What’s beneficial is what we don’t see. We don’t know what type of stress such close proximity might have on those animals — or what the long-term implications might be. No one has actually tracked an animal from birth to death at Children’s Pool and noted any shift.”

People crowd the Children’s Pool beach at sunset to see the harbor seals. accidentally did that, they would probably get a phone call explaining to them that this is not allowed under the law, to educate them more than punish them,” DeAngelis said. n Mark McPherson, Chief of the San Diego County Department of Environmental Health, said the safety of the water at Children’s Pool for humans is monitored regularly. When seals are present, the bacteria levels in the water almost always exceed state safety standards. This is not the case at beaches where large numbers of seals are not present. Children’s Pool seals vs. others n DeAngelis said the harbor seal population

Daniel Solomon

at Children’s Pool is stable and at carrying capacity. As of today, they are not on the endangered or threatened species list. “Genetically, we don’t know what the Children’s Pool seals contribute to the seal population,” she said, adding that she doesn’t know the ramifications to California’s seal stock of removing the Children’s Pool seals from the site at which they give birth. Should the seals be removed from the Children’s Pool, they might go elsewhere over time, she posited. There are more than 1,000 miles of coastline in California. Why don’t we know more about seals?

— Please note: La Jolla Light would like to thank all the experts who contributed to this series, especially Monica DeAngelis, who returned every e-mail and was available for every phone call, taking time to answer each question to Monica DeAngelis the best of her knowledge. n To read the previous stories from La Jolla Light’s The Seal Deal series, visit lajollalight.com/la-jolla-news/seal-watch

FROM MEMORIALS, A1 Levinsky’s gratitude for her survival has taken several forms — in contributions to organizations such as the Jewish War Veterans of the United States of America, and another organization that honors so-called “Righteous Gentiles,� or non-Jews who risked their lives during the Holocaust to save Jews from execution. In her own community, Levinsky has chosen to honor those who helped save her family’s life and made similar heroic sacrifices via memorial plaques at the Mt. Soledad Veterans Memorial. She has dedicated granite plaques to both 33rd U.S. President Harry S. Truman and British Prime Minister Winston Churchill.

Student connects with grandfather he never knew via volunteer service Though Bryce Matsumori never had the opportunity to meet his Grandfather, George T. Matsumori, the Francis Parker School junior found a special way to honor and forge a connection with his ancestor, who served as technical sergeant in the Korean War. Last year, the 16-year-old La Jolla resident dedicated a plaque to his grandfather at the Mt. Soledad Veterans Memorial, where Bryce has volunteered his services since eighth grade. Bryce e-mailed the La Jolla Light some thoughts while away competing with his school’s robotics team. He said that upon requesting his grandfather’s military records, he learned that George Matsumori was involved in three of the 10 major battles of the Korean War. Through his volunteer work at the memorial site, Bryce said he has learned much about the government, the military, wars and the concept of honor that he wouldn’t otherwise have learned in school. “I think more high school students studying U.S. history should receive the Medal of Honor. As a student at San Diego State University, Levinsky admired him for enlisting in the Vietnam War, while others drafted for service fled to Canada or elsewhere. “He suffered 40 different shrapnel wounds saving his buddies,� Levinsky said. “He was my hero.� Levinsky’s most recent plaque, to be installed this week, is dedicated to the same 14 Jewish chaplains

LA JOLLA LIGHT - april 4, 2013 - Page A15

La Jolla Town Council Trustee Ramin Pourteymour is seeking a historic designation from the city for architect Kendrick Bangs Kellogg’s ‘Atoll’ residence in La Jolla Farms. Courtesy

Historical Resources Board hears input on two La Jolla properties By Pat Sherman The City of San Diego’s Historical Resources Board (HRB) was presented with information about two potentially historic La Jolla properties during its March 28 meeting. The board heard a report on a single-family residence in La Jolla Farms designed by master architect Kendrick Bangs Kellogg in 1971, which was completed in 1978 by La Jolla homebuilder Peter Corrente. The home’s current owner, La Jolla Town Council Trustee Ramin Pourteymour, is seeking to have the organic, free-form modern home at 9805 Blackgold Road listed as a historic resource. The structure, known as both the Thomas and Margaret Turney House (for the couple that purchased the lot in 1970) and the Atoll residence (for its coral islandlike shape), took eight years to complete, partly because the couple divorced shortly after the home was commissioned. Kellogg, a licensed contractor and relative of Frederic Law Olmsted (considered the “father of

landscape architecture”) studied at the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture in Scottsdale. Like Wright, the 79-year-old architect’s buildings often follow the form of their natural setting. Vonn Marie May of Encinitasbased Cultural Land Planning and Research, herself a former HRB member of 10 years, presented the request to the board. Though the property is relatively new for a historic designation, May noted that the Salk Institute, completed in 1965, received a historic designation from the city in 1987. The owner is requesting a historic designation based on the home’s distinct style of architecture and the significance of the architect (Kellogg’s work in San Diego and around the world has long been feted in the world of architecture). “We’re lucky to have this guy,” said May of the East County architect. “It’s really important that his work is recognized.” May said the HRB was reluctant to grant a designation based on the home’s age, and because the material used on its roof in

ensuing years changed its color and texture. The HRB granted the La Jolla Historical Society’s request for a 30day continuance on the property. The society plans to file a letter of support for the designation before it is considered again at the HRB’s April 25 meeting.

Last chance for WindanSea cottages During the HRB’s public comment period, La Jolla Historical Society (LJHS) Preservation Committee Chair Leslie Davis read a letter contesting the planned demolition of adjoining 1930s cottages at 337 and 341 Playa del Sur in WindanSea. In late 2010, HRB staff determined that the properties had suffered a “loss of integrity,” meaning a report found too many of the structures’ original features had been altered, including the replacement of 11 of 18 windows and most of the shingle siding. Also cited in the report was the “possible addition of a cobble

Spotlight on Local

Luxury and style meet at Symphony Home Décor By Marti Gacioch At a store with a name like Symphony Home Décor & Design, prospective clients might expect to find only the most exquisite furnishings and fabrics available, materials that express a harmonious agreement of design and color. They will not be disappointed when visiting the new store at 7447 Girard Ave. It will exceed their expectations. In January, Symphony Mousighi debuted her store specializing in luxurious, custom soft furnishings: bedding, draperies, pillows, table runners, tablecloths, accessories and antique pieces of the highest caliber. All merchandise is elegantly showcased in the 1,370-square-foot space. “We design and manufacture sophisticated, timeless soft furnishings and we can meet every client’s needs — from the person seeking a new bedspread to someone making over their whole bedroom or their whole home,” she said. “We also have a large antiques selection, so we can provide a look that people have in mind; we have beds, chairs, lady’s desks, tables, dining tables, vases, marble and bronze statues, bone china and even a piano.” The store’s high-end fabrics, with a European flair, are primarily imported silk from Italy and France. Cotton and jacquard

Luxury in custom provisions is the speciality at Symphony Home Decor & Design on Girard Avenue. fabrics are also featured. Both the design and fabrication of all merchandise is done to the highest standards in Symphony’s San Diego workroom on Clairemont Drive. “At our workroom, we create the highest quality product; we measure and install with our in-house experienced workroom staff and licensed installation team,” Symphony said. “We are devoted to serving our clients with ease and without delay, and we stand behind our work 100-percent, for we know

that any successful business relationship is based on quality.” Married with two children, Symphony said her inspiration to open Symphony Home Décor came from her own quest for custom curtains to outfit the large windows of her newly built home. “When I began looking for fabrics, I got inspired by the patterns and the colors because they reminded me of how I grew up around fabrics,” she said. “I played hide-and-seek in my

grandmother’s house, hiding behind heavy, rich burgundy velvet curtains with silver thread trims … the scent of the fabrics as I hid behind them, and the excitement of being found, helped inspire me to create the Symphony Home Decor & Design store.” — Symphony Home Décor & Design, 7447 Girard Ave. in La Jolla, is open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday.

Proposed legislation could kill newspapers

T

he La Jolla Light and its parent company MainStreet Media join a growing list of community newspapers from across the state in asking our readers to write letters and send e-mails opposing a bill in Sacramento which, if passed, could literally put many of us out of business. Assembly Bill 642, authored by Anthony Rendon (D-Bell), proposes to permit the online publishing of public notices by allowing Internet-only entities to become “newspapers of general circulation.” Affected would be the publishing of notices of public meetings and bids, fictitious business statements, name changes, and trustee sales. Rendon, a freshman member of the state assembly, agreed to carry the legislation at the specific request of AOL (formerly known as America Online), which operates the Patch online local news sites. AOL wants the law changed so that it can steal the precious legal advertising dollars to help infuse new cash into its struggling news model. AB 642 is similar in scope to last year’s AB 1902, which died in the Assembly Judicial Committee. This new version has been assigned to the same committee for a yetto-be-scheduled hearing. Here are a few of the many reasons it

OUR view deserves the same fate: n The criteria used to establish an Internet-only entity to be the official newspaper for a community is so weak it would allow any blogger or hobbyist with a laptop, tablet or smart phone to qualify. n AB 642 requires no brick-and-mortar presence, no business office, and therefore, likely no local publisher, editors, local ad staff, no production or circulation staff. A single “regional editor” aggregating content from the worldwide Web and rewriting news created at great expense by real newspapers would qualify. n The Internet is a seek-and-find technology. Newspapers are a “push technology” dependably pushing millions of printed, published and distributed public notices into millions of households and businesses every day. Put another way, AB 642 moves published and distributed public notices from a proven, reliable method of delivery to an uncertain, experimental system requiring the public to identify, seek and find public notices. n Internet-only public notices are undependable, have no permanency; are subject to change; and susceptible to technological failure. Internet connections

fail, servers crash, links die and websites are hacked. n We find it improbable that an Internetbased “newspaper” can offer a level of service for the legal advertising dollar that includes filing a proof of publication with the court. Dale Kelly Bankhead, Deputy Chief of Staff for La Jolla local assembly member Toni Atkins (D-78th District) said Atkins has not yet had an opportunity to review the bill and does not serve on the 10-member Judiciary Committee, which will hear the bill some time next month. “If the bill is approved by the committee, she will review it when it is scheduled for a vote of the full Assembly,” Bankhead said. If you care about the public’s right to know and the financial viability of newspapers such as this one, please take a few moments within the next week to write or e-mail your opposition to AB 642. (A sample letter can be downloaded at www. pomeradonews.com) E-mail it to Bob Wieckowski, chairman of the Judiciary Committee, at assemblymember.wieckowski@assembly. ca.gov or mail to his capitol office at: Bob Wieckowski P.O.

Seal camera at Children’s Pool greatly welcomed, but not new By Patrick Lee Hord ll Wildlife Biologist, Co-founder and former Executive Director of La Jolla Friends of the Seals

I

installed SealCam on the Lifeguard Tower summer of 2000. It quickly became the most popular Internet camera in California. People from all over the world tuned in and watched what I coined San Diego’s “unique natural treasure” — the seals. I feel fortunate to have seen the Casa Beach in a relative state of peace when it was closed to people from April 1999 to August 2004, and when visitors generally comported themselves with some degree of respect for the animals and propriety for each other. What changed is that the inherent human predisposition for mindless domination and entitlement overtook compassion, respect, and common sense. During that time, the volunteer docent program was so successful with educating visitors that complaint calls to National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) about seal harassment fell to zero only two months after our initial presence at the site. This prompted the awarding of the Environmental Hero Award from NOAA and Vice President Gore to our group. In 2007, I organized and raised funds for another Internet camera at the site. Local

GUEST COMMENTARY business, non-profit, and the Feds were signed on, but San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders slammed the door of his office on the project. This was a creative opportunity missed for education, enjoyment, protection of natural resources, and promotion of San Diego. The new seal camera has acutely brought to light what has happened at the site since an elite group of La Jollans forced the removal of the protective rope in 2004, i.e. an almost daily orchestrated campaign of intentionally scaring off the seals by clanging umbrellas and lawn chairs, staging barbeques, coaxing tourists down onto the beach, and deliberately keeping seals from returning. The only reason for present opposition to the new camera is now those same people can be seen acting ridiculous and breaking the law. Closing the beach at night can only benefit all involved, however, that, too, is opposed by the same cabal of seal haters. With over a million people a year coming to watch seals and only a small fraction of those using the beach, one has to wonder why the City and Feds have pandered to such a small interest group for so long? A unique world class wildlife viewing site has degraded into a tawdry circus for physical and verbal assaults, selling trinkets, restraining orders, spitting and urinating on others, arrests, religious and political demonstrations, Internet stalking, death threats, FBI

involvement, pepper spraying and a stun gun, law suits, millions of taxpayer dollars spent, 24/7 police, and the dissemination of much misinformation about the seals and the site. It is simply, an embarrassment. One that most San Diegans have endured not condoned. That misinformation includes the anthropomorphic oxymoron “shared use” which, in reality, has been the driver for the conflict at the site since the early 1990s. To harbor seals we are just another land-based predator, and seals mix with humans only in the minds of humans. Harbor seal survival literally depends on terrestrial haul-outs like the Casa Beach where they spend half their lives. The recent incidents beg the question that has been the elephant in the room or beach for years: Why has the Federal government refused to exercise its duty to protect the seals? I was told by the local NOAA agent that agents were instructed not to write citations. Thankfully, Mayor Filner gets this situation for what it is and is actively utilizing what tools he has to bring much needed management to the site. Let’s encourage him to call NOAA and ask them to do their job. Sadly, we have still not changed our mindset, language, and hearts to meet the desperate situation imposed on wildlife by human encroachment and pollution of their traditional habitats. At the Casa Beach, we have a unique opportunity to transcend our limited and consumptive vision of how to live in the natural world and just simply give the seals the beach. We would be better for it.

FROM Historical Homes, A15 veneer over the chimney.” The board approved the owner’s request to demolish the cottages and re-build a duplex. The LJHS is requesting further historical consideration of the property and a full HRB review. The property was identified in a Historic Reconnaissance Survey

Report prepared for the City of San Diego in 2002. The LJHS contends that any site identified in such a report is subject to a full review by the HRB, not just staff (which previously reviewed it). Reading a prepared statement to the HRB board March 28, Davis said, in part, “it appears that the description of ‘loss of integrity’ is incorrectly applied in general to

the entire property, when in fact the beach cottage facing the street … retains significant original features, including windows, siding and a stone chimney.” She suggested the properties be considered separately. Donna Blackmond, a chemistry professor with the Scripps Research Institute and a Playa del Sur resident, spoke on behalf of a

group of Play del Sur residents concerned about the planned demolition of the cottages. Blackmond, who moved to La Jolla from London three years ago, said she had read the HRB’s preliminary report on the property, and concurred with the LJHS’s findings. “Even as a relative newcomer to La Jolla, I embrace the history of this community as it is revealed

through its architecture, its people and its culture,” she said, noting that she owned two historic structures while living in Europe. “America may have a younger past, but the richness of our past and our human need to embrace this history is no less compelling,” Blackmond said. “We cannot bring our history back once it has been destroyed.”

OBITUARIES

William G. Wilhelm 1952 – 2013

William G. Wilhelm 60, of La Jolla, passed away on Monday, March 11, 2013, surrounded by his loving family. He was born to the late John and Rose Marie Wilhelm on May 9, 1952, in La Jolla, California. Bill, the third of five children, graduated from the University of San Diego and California Western School of Law. After practicing law for a number of years, he became interested in the research and development for several of his father’s inventions, in addition to some of his own, namely the navigational software Micro Mariner. In 2008 he became involved with AquaLogix, a firm that manufactures fitness equipment used by many YMCA’s, gyms and also for the rehabilitation of our Wounded Warriors. He was proud to be named president of the company in 2009. Bill also continued to practice law, specializing in Business Licensing and Technology startups. In 1954, the Wilhelm family which included John, Rose Marie, Diana, Jack and Bill, moved to Majorca, Spain, for one year. Much to his parent’s delight, little Bill became quite proficient in the Mallorquin language. In later years, he continued to take advantage of “the travel bug” by enjoying trips to Costa Rica and Mexico

and hiking throughout many parts of Southern California. La Jolla, however, held a special place in his heart. To him there was nothing like the beach, be it Windansea or the Cove – he loved it all. Bill is survived by his loving wife of five years, Judy Wilhelm; his brothers and sisters, Diana Carter, Jack Wilhelm, Michele Perry and Rick Wilhelm; in addition to a number of nieces and nephews. As many of his friends can attest, once you met Bill, he was your friend forever. A celebration of his life will be held on Saturday, April 6, 2013, at the home of Bo Fellows in La Jolla.

Elizabeth Dickinson 1927 – 2013

Longtime La Jolla resident and San Diego Mediator and Peacemaker, Elizabeth Dickinson, died March 24, 2013, in her sleep. She was 85. Elizabeth was greatly beloved at the National Conflict Resolution Center (NCRC), formerly San Diego Mediation Center), where she participated over a period of twenty years as a volunteer mediator, trainer and Board member. She began mediating in 1988 and over the years handled all types of cases including Superior Court personal

injury cases and eldercare cases. She was active as a mediator and board member until she was 80 years old. Elizabeth was on the selection committee of the Peacemaker Awards, and annual event honoring peacemakers in San Diego and around the country. Born Marion Elizabeth Crouch on July 10, 1927, in Pulaski, Virginia, her family moved fifty miles to the Appalachian foothill town of Marion, Virginia, when she was 11 years old. Her father managed the Virginia Lincoln Furniture Company while her mother raised Elizabeth and her older sister, Mildred. In the beginning of the seventh grade, a boy in her class named Nathan Dickinson scratched “I love you” on a protractor and passed it to her. They eventually became high school sweethearts and married in 1950. The Dickinson family moved to La Jolla in 1960 and lived in the Windansea area. Elizabeth was soon involved with the League of Women Voters and a variety of drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs. She also returned to college at San Diego State, earning her degree in political science. Nathan worked for Control Data and during the 1970s and 1980s, the company posted the Dickinsons in various foreign locales including Mexico City, Mexico; Vienna, Austria; and Melbourne, Australia. They always maintained ties in La Jolla. When they returned to La Jolla in 1984, Elizabeth continued working with nonprofit and community organizations. In addition to her work with NCRC, she spent two decades on the board of the directors for Rachel’s Women’s Center, a homeless women’s shelter sponsored by Catholic Charities. She was an active member of the Democratic Party and ACLU. “She brought her whole self

to the moment, her quick mind, her wide circle of friends, her love of family, her great repertoire of lifetime stories, and her love of chocolate,” said Liz O’Brien, a past president of the NCRC. Elizabeth could often be seen walking along the La Jolla Cove wearing a yellow sweater or jacket, befriending locals and tourists alike. She is remembered for her love of her friends, grandchildren, chocolate, and her own month-long birthday celebration. She is survived by a daughter, Lisa Hyslop of La Jolla; son, Nate of Portland, Oregon; two grandchildren, Natalie Dickinson in Portland and Kate Dickinson in San Diego; and two greatgranddaughters, threeyear-old Luella and onemonth-old Zora Villaseñor, daughters of Kate Dickinson. A celebration of life service will be held Saturday, April 13, 2013, at 2 p.m. at the La Jolla Bridge Club at the La Jolla Cove Park.

Rosamond Larmour Loomis 1911 – 2013

Rosamond Loomis was born February 14, 1911, in Berkeley, a small community in Norfolk, Virginia. She was the only daughter of loving and nurturing parents. Her father was a brilliant watercolorist, particularly

inspired by trains and ships. After attending local public schools, Mrs. Loomis was given a first year scholarship to attend Hollins women’s college in Roanoke, Virginia. While working her way through college Mrs. Loomis picked up many of the qualities that would shape her into the engaging educator, dedicated community leader and beloved stepmother who inspired the lives of so many. Following her Master’s studies at Radcliffe College, Mrs. Loomis served as teacher, counselor and principal. Her students included First lady Barbara Bush. In 1953 she accepted the invitation to become Head Mistress of The Bishop’s School in La Jolla. During her nine years as Head Mistress Mrs. Loomis, or Miss Larmour as she was then known, left an indelible mark on her “girls” and the school. Though she left in 1962, Mrs. Loomis has persisted in being deeply involved in Bishop’s and in the local community. Her “girls” continued to stay in contact with their beloved Head Mistress throughout the rest of her life. In 1963 Miss Larmour became Mrs. Richard Loomis and joined his family including two sons and a daughter. Her marriage to Richard Loomis introduced her to new roles as a housewife, cook, stepmother and eventually great grandmother; all of which she took on with the same keenness which marked her life and career. Richard Loomis passed away in 1994. Mrs. Richard Loomis was a role model whose guidance, inquisitive nature and enthusiasm was infectious, and during her 102 years, she helped shape many around her through example. She is missed by all the people whose lives she touched. Mrs. Loomis is survived by

her family in Virginia; her family through her husband, Mary Loomis Dorn, David Loomis and Richard Loomis, Jr.; and their extended families. Services will be held Wednesday, April 17, 2013, at 3PM in the afternoon at St James by the Sea Episcopal Church, 743 Prospect Street, La Jolla, CA. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The Bishop’s School, 7607 La Jolla Blvd., La Jolla, CA 92037-4799. Please sign the guest book online at www.legacy.com/ obituaries/lajollalight.

WindanSea beachfront property to be replaced by condo complex By Ashley Mackin The property at 6722 Vista Del Mar at WindanSea in La Jolla will be replaced — perhaps as early as this summer — with a new seven-unit condominium complex according to renderings on the Coldwell Banker California Moves site, as well as community planning group minutes. The current residents must be out by the end of March and were told escrow on the property closes at the end of April. Residents told the La Jolla Light they knew little about the plans and were given 60 days notice to vacate as developers were waiting for city approval and a few final permits before construction begins. The realtor would not name the buyer, who could not be reached for comment.

In August 2010, the Development Permit Review Committee approved “findings for the Coastal Development Permit, Site Development Permit for Environmentally Sensitive Lands and Map Waiver application to waive the requirements of a tentative map to demolish existing buildings (6722 Vista Del Mar) and construct seven residential condominiums on a 0.17 acre site,” per the minutes from that meeting. The following month, the Community Planning Association (CPA) accepted the DPR recommendation for approval and forwarded its recommendation to the City of San Diego. The Coldwell Banker site also states the Coastal Development Permit was approved.

Palm trimming on hold pending approval of city contract By Pat Sherman Following a March 7 La Jolla Light story that palm tree trimming in and around the Village had resumed, the Light has learned that the trimming is now on hold. Recent palm tree

trimming included some trees along Eads Avenue and Torrey Pines Road at the end of January, and more recently palms on West Muirlands Drive (according to La Jolla Town Council trustee Nancy Gardner).

Would you like to never paint again?

Citywide palm tree trimming had been on hold for years due to budget constraints. However, the safety of the city’s approximately 30,000 neglected palm trees has come into focus again. A

jury recently awarded $7.6 million to a Mission Hills man who was paralyzed after a city tree fell on him. A representative for the office of City Councilmember Sherri Lightner told community groups last fall that the city council had approved a contract to trim palms within San Diego’s public rights-of-way, including about 1,000 in Council District 1 (which includes La Jolla). One of the contractors hired to do the work, West Coast Arborists, told the Light they

had run out of money allocated for the work. Additional trimming was planned in La Jolla, including palms on Prospect Street, La Jolla Boulevard and elsewhere, pending approval of another citywide tree-trimming contract. However, Lightner’s office said March 27 that the staff-approved, five-year contract — to be considered by the City Council’s Budget and Finance Committee on March 13 — was “returned to (city) staff at the mayor’s request.” That contract called for

spending as much as $1.7 million for citywide tree maintenance in fiscal year 2013, and as much as $18.5 million for tree service between 2013 and 2018. The work, to be completed by three contractors (including West Coast Arborists), included removal, trimming, planting and inventory of trees within public rights-of-way and open spaces. Meanwhile, the Light has received inquiries from La Jollans requesting to know when palms will be trimmed in the following locations: the 300 block of Prospect Street; the 1600 block of Torrey Pines Road (across from Coast Walk); on Park Row and Belvedere Street; on Nautilus Street east of Muirlands Drive; near Kellogg Park in La Jolla Shores; and on Forward Street in Bird Rock. Resident Joyce Snell said she believes the Forward Street palm hasn’t been trimmed in at least 10 years. “I had to pay someone recently to clean off my roof and yard from the palm debris,” Snell said. “I’m hoping to be on the list.” The Light has forwarded those readers’ inquires to Lightner’s office, and will follow up upon approval of the next tree-trimming contract. n To ask San Diego Mayor Bob Filner to approve treetrimming funds, call his office at (619) 236-6330.

La Jolla High baseball to play first game at PETCO Park By Ashley Mackin The boys of La Jolla High’s Vikings baseball team will be hitting the field at 1 p.m. Friday, April 19 against Point Loma High School — oh, and the field will be the San Diego Padres’ PETCO Park. In a partnership between San Diego CIF and the Padres, 12 San Diego teams will play on the major league diamond (where a Babe Ruth “Called Shot” pose is all but guaranteed). “It’s a real generous gesture on the part of the Padres to reach out to local high school athletes and athletic departments and give them a chance to play on a Major League Baseball diamond,” said San Diego CIF representative Jim Esterbrooks. “I know the Padres have had a very strong community orientation for decades now, and this is a reflection of that. They really want to reach out to the community,” As an added incentive, those who buy a $10 ticket to the La Jolla High game will receive a free ticket to the Padres vs. Arizona Diamondbacks game on May 3

at 7:10 p.m. To purchase tickets, contact Howard Frank at hbfandjm@aol.com or (619) 857-1317 or (619) 5741888. Checks can also be made out to Howard Frank and mailed to 136 Redwood St., San Diego, CA 92103. Selected on a rotating schedule, the teams will play in accordance with their regular schedule, so if they weren’t playing at PETCO, they would still play these games at those times.

“We’re trying to touch all parts of the county and ensure that we’re not having repeat school until everybody’s had a shot,” Esterbrooks said. This will be the first time the Vikings were in the rotation, because La Jolla High and Point Loma High are the last two schools that haven’t had a chance to play. Coach Gary Frank joked that while knowing a school wouldn’t play twice until everyone has played once,

he was still doubtful about the trip to PETCO Park. “I was very relieved when they gave us the call this year,” Frank said, adding that his team was ecstatic. “It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for 99.99 percent of high school athletes to get to play on a big league field.” Frank said the Vikings team this year is marked with strong defense, solid pitching, and “quite a few

guys that can handle the bat pretty well.” Despite the location, the Vikings are treating this like any other game, and Coach Frank expects them to work hard, be prepared and run everything out to the best of their abilities. “San Diego County is known across the country for the level of baseball that’s played here, so you’re going to see great baseball,” by going to the event, Esterbrooks said. “It’s

Youths will compete in different age brackets at the La Jolla Shores Menehune Surf Contest. This year’s event will take place April 20.

Courtesy of Claudia Perez

Keikis to hang ten at Menehune Surf Contest By Ashley Mackin La Jolla Shores Surfing Association is accepting applications for its annual Menehune Surf Contest on April 20 at La Jolla Shores. The deadline for registration is April 13. The youth surfing contest (menehune means little person) is broken down into age brackets. Of the approximately 150 competitors, boys longboard and shortboard compete in age groups 7-9, 10-12, 13-15 and 16-18, and girls long-

board and shortboard in bracket ages 7-10, 11-14 and 15-18. One registrant is a 7-yearold who cannot walk, but will surf with the help of his brother. He has medulloblastoma, a type of brain cancer, and will enter in the novice division. Contest Director Stephanie Hoffman said surfers will be evaluated by a panel of three judges on choice of waves, style and maneuvers. Keikis (kids), ages 6 and younger, will not be judged,

but will be allowed to participate for fun. “One of the most rewarding events to watch is the Super Menehunes, who are under 6 years old. We have surfers as young as 2 years old in this division. They all surf at one time and it is great fun to see all the little ones together,” Hoffman said, noting that one of the goals is to “host a fun, community surf contest to allow kids to compete in a friendly environment.” The other is to “gather our

surf community for an event that benefits others; we donate 100 percent of the contest proceeds to charities in the area.” This year, beneficiaries will include Natural High, Scripps Institute of Oceanography, Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve and Wildcoast. Registration discounts apply to members of a middle or high school surf team, or those who enter with a team of five or more, or for surfing students in area surf camps or schools.

If you go ■ What: La Jolla Shores Surfing Association’s annual Menehune Surf Contest for boys and girls 18-under in longboard, shortboard and novice divisions ■ When: Saturday, April 20.

Ted Rodosovich keeps La Jolla’s thinkers on their tippy toes

Lifelong teacher, traveler Grace White likes the people and climate of La Jolla Grace White turned 100 on March 18. Ashley Mackin

La Jolla Centenarians Ted Rodosovich

Ted Rodosovich was born to steel mill workers in northeast Ohio. Via athletics (football and boxing — he was Heavyweight Champ U.S.M.A. 1960-61), he was able to attend West Point and later graduate from The University of Cincinnati. His business and teaching career mixed. He played some pro football (1965-66 NFL Baltimore Colts and CFL Winnipeg Blue Bombers) until a permanent leg injury. Now retired, the self-taught science buff is an activist touting atheism, veganism and Democratic Socialism. A longtime Poway resident, Rodosovich moved to La Jolla 12 years ago after a divorce. He has two adult children and four grandchildren. He said he is a facilitator, ambassador and mediator “for other hanger-outer local yokels late afternoons between Whole Foods and Peet’s Coffee & Tea at The Shops at La Jolla Village Square. “This quote fits us: ‘The Earth shifted on its axis and everything loose fell into Southern California,’ ” he said.

Editor’s Note: As part of La Jolla Light’s 100th publishing anniversary this year, we are featuring interviews with fellow centenarians throughout 2013. If you know a La Jollan who is 100 years old, please e-mail sdemaggio@lajollalight.com or call (858) 875-5950.

By Ashley Mackin race White may have lived in La Jolla since 1980, but the 100-year-old teacher has traveled the world and lived in towns across the United States. “I always taught school, my whole life was teaching school,” she said. White was born on her father’s farm in Joliet, Illinois on March 18, 1913. When she was young, the state bought the farm and built a prison on the land, so her family moved to Iowa, and then to Brownsville, Texas.

G

While in Texas, she went to a junior college to earn a teaching degree. After five years of studying, she was sent into the town to teach. “Jobs were never a problem for me,” she said. “I was lucky in my teaching career.” She earned a master’s degree at the University of Northern Colorado and taught at the demonstration school there. Though she said she enjoyed living in Colorado, her next move was to Montclair, New Jersey to teach. White

What brought you to La Jolla?

said she couldn’t teach today, due to the lack of discipline she sees in modern students. Despite all the moving, she settled down long enough to get married. She was married to her first husband, Joe Zahrenger, for more than 20 years before he died. The two did not have any children. She continued her teaching career in New Jersey throughout her marriage.

By Linda Hutchison La Jolla emerged in the early 1900s as The Jewel by the Sea, eager to welcome visitors and new homeowners. But for many who wanted to live here, not all of The Jewel was set in shining silver or gold. For decades, theirs was an untold story, one of discrimination and exclusion. Many potential residents were not welcome here and were prevented from buying property based on their race, ethnicity or religion. To help tell this story, the La Jolla Historical Society has added more information to its current exhibit, “Home of Your Dreams: Early La Jolla 1887 through the 1920s.” Based on research and information donated by longtime La Jolla resident Howard Singer, the exhibit addition is titled, “Paradise Lost: The Emergence of Restrictive Covenants.” “After spending more than the average amount of time looking over the exhibit, I knew SEE housing EXHIBIT, B11

Using the good stuff Let Inga tell you ...

La Jolla Cultural Partners

as I did, that 99 percent of it lives a perpetually shunned life in its wooden storage coffin, ultimately to be inflicted on another hapless generation. Sterling flatware is the ultimate white elephant. Actually, the elephant would be less work. Now there are a few champions out there who do encourage you to use sterling every day. Life is short, they exhort! Use the good stuff! It’s not that hard if you follow a few (dozen) simple rules! Using sterling daily, for example, has the alleged benefit that you don’t have to polish it as often. In my case I hope this means never. The biggest downside I’ve found with sterling flatware is that you can’t use it on actual food. Among the comestibles that damage sterling silver are vinegar, acidic fruit juices, eggs, mayo, salad dressings, spaghetti sauces, table salt, olives, and pickles. We have enough trouble with our primary care doctor axing

the high glycemic carbs without having to eliminate whole other classifications of food based on the preferences of our flatware. There is a huge debate as to whether you can put sterling flatware in your dishwasher; most sites recommend you hand wash and dry it. If I have to hand wash all my silverware, the score would be flatware 50, Inga -10. (The bone china has made the adjustment to Cascade.) My feeling is that everybody has to give a little here, including (and especially) the flatware. For example, I quickly concluded that if you’re going to use sterling silver daily, life is too short to heed the recommendation that one count all the pieces after every use. Spoon accidentally lost in the trash? Sayonara, baby! Even the dishwasher advocates concede that you can’t let the sterling stuff touch stainless stuff in the silverware basket. Something about electrolytic reactions,

ions, pitting — bad scientific-y things. So against my better judgment, my silverware caddy now has its own DMZ with a strict nonfraternization policy on either side. How long this will actually last has already been a subject of wagers in our household. But even that’s not enough. Absolutely no lemon-scented or “citrus additives” in your dishwasher soap. It is also important to rinse sterling silverware immediately after exposure to food, preferably while still in the diner’s hands. Letting it sit on dinner plates on the kitchen counter while you watch “Dancing with the Stars” is inviting disaster. It just goes against everything I believe in (never mind a lifetime of marginal housekeeping skills) to have my life controlled by silverware. But as much as I try to ignore it, I hear it calling out to me: “Yoo hoo, Inga, we’re tarnishing out here!”

Waayyy too many sites advise that should you fail to comply with the Sterling Silver Playbook that you will have to “take the ware for repairs to a professional silversmith.” There is nothing about the term “professional silversmith” that sounds life-enhancing to me. The bottom line, of course, is what sterling flatware really requires is … servants. The Downton Abbey cast seemed to have no dearth of lackeys polishing the stuff on a regular basis. But I am determined to use my nice things, including my new sterling, and nobody is going to stop me! Even if it all looks like hell in six months. As for glassware, I’m afraid it’s strictly Crate & Barrel. Because I don’t think Fang is leaving me the Baccarat in her will. It probably couldn’t go in the dishwasher anyway. — Look for La Jolla resident Inga’s lighthearted looks at life every other week in La Jolla Light. Reach her by e-mail at inga47@san.rr.com

I

simply refuse to be defeated by sterling silverware. But so far the tally is flatware 3, Inga 0. We recently inherited a set of beautiful sterling flatware from a great aunt of Olof’s and since we had long since begun using my mother’s bone china on a daily basis, we decided to jettison the stainless and upgrade ourselves to daily sterling as well. As the L’Oreal commercial says, we’re worth it. Using the bone china has turned out to be a fabulous idea with only one minor problem: it has flowers. Olof is not a flower man. In fact, I think it may have been part of our wedding vows. (“I,Inga, promise not to subject Olof to a single flower motif on furnishings, bedding, wall coverings, throw pillows, bath tile, or

visible domestic surfaces so long as we both shall live.”) But as I pointed out to Olof, the flower pattern is usually covered by food. Now that we’ve been using it awhile, I’ve noticed the twitching has stopped. But the sterling thing has turned out to be a whole different ballgame. My much-missed long-deceased mother had beautiful sterling flatware, an exquisite set of Limoges (in addition to the wedding china that I now have), and lovely Baccarat crystal, all of which is in the possession of our younger-than-any-ofus stepmother, Fang, along with our now-deceased father’s estate. At least weekly I pray that the Limoges is leaching lead. But maybe Fang did me a favor stealing the sterling. Once Olof’s great-aunt’s flatware came into our lives, I quickly discovered how truly high maintenance it is. If you look on the Internet regarding care of sterling flatware, you will conclude,

Cultures mix to serve up delicious fun at Indigo Grill By Kelley Carlson ith the rare distinction of being a non-Italian restaurant in a district known for its pizzas and pastas, Indigo Grill (a member of the Cohn Restaurant Group), stands apart from its neighbors in Little Italy, San Diego. Its décor and menu range from one extreme — the warm and culturally diverse state of Oaxaca, Mexico – to the other — the icy wilderness of Alaska. But together, the elements create a casual fine dining setting that’s playful and welcoming, a reflection of partner/Executive Chef Deborah Scott’s personality. It’s immediately obvious to passers-by, who look up to see the Indigo Grill sign with letters that “dance” like flames. Inside, the restaurant is divided into regions. To the left is the “south,” where woven walls in golden hues feature tribal masks, copper lights dangle from chains, and cultural artifacts, such as skeletons, accent the room. Moving in the opposite direction, the space gently curves and the décor begins its transition. The bar combines rich browns with cool, slate gray. A giant, partially faux coniferous tree — typically found in the cooler northern climates — greets guests at the entrance. Chairs with native symbols representing various tribes surround a community table.

Common throughout all areas is a wood floor with a rustic, earthy tone, along with the sounds of Peruvian, Hispanic and European melodies. It’s the ceviche bar where Scott recommends that guests, especially first-timers, sit. “There’s a lot of interaction and it’s fun to watch (the behind-the-scenes activity),” she said. “You get a good feeling of what’s going on, and you get to watch all the food go by.” Patrons also get the aromatic whiff of

Those who prefer to dine outside may sit on the fully heated and enclosed patio, which features adjustable screens and views of Little Italy’s tree-lined streets. Not only does the restaurant décor contain an artistic flair, but the dishes are also visual masterpieces. It’s common for a guest to stop a server and ask to take a photo of a brilliantly colorful creation or a chocolate garnish designed to look like a dragon or serpent. “We have an amazing staff, a lot of real artists,” Scott said. The most popular item is one of the starters,

the Pipian Crusted Brie, a soft cheese that is enveloped in a nutty, earthy-flavored crust. It’s served with sweet-yet-spicy jalapeño jelly, honey-roasted garlic, grilled nopalese, mole negro and scallion flatbread. A popular soup is the Roasted Butternut Squash, an autumnal-colored concoction that incorporates cilantro pesto, roasted corn, beet puree, pepitas and creme fraiche. Scott’s personal favorite entree is the Jalapeño Cilantro Pappardelle. Other chef recommendations include the PecanCrusted Rainbow Trout, Pork Porterhouse and Pipian-Rojo Chicken Breast.

when she receives her Meals on Wheels deliveries, “People still ask me, ‘Didn’t you used to have a dog, named Montgomery?’ ” She belonged to the La Jolla Woman’s Club and the Scripps’ Mariscos Eye Center. Her only ailment now is that she is losing her eyesight due to glaucoma. White said she can no longer watch television or read, so instead, she listens to the news on the radio and to audio books — one of few technologies she loves.

Calling them “Books for Braille,” White said they are a “godsend.” She just finished a book on George Washington. “I like mysteries, and Braille has a new machine out. They have cartridges the size of a domino … it’s wonderful.” While acknowledging the struggle of slowly losing her sight, White said she keeps a positive attitude and never worries. “I’m not a worrier; whatever happens, happens. I don’t worry,” she said. “How do you think I got to be 100?”

White was widowed for quite some time before she started dating the man who would become her second husband, Leland M. White. He was also a traveler and a consultant to the Malaysian Water Board. The two were friends for years before they married, and White knew Leland’s first wife. The couple traveled to England, Italy, parts of Africa, and of course, Malaysia, from where they would take side trips, seemingly at random. “(Leland) would just look at the globe and say, ‘This time we’re going here,’ and point. “I enjoyed Malaysia very much. It opened my eyes to the world. They have a different religion, a different way of life, a different set of beliefs, it was just a new world.” When Leland died in 1978, White moved to La Jolla at the suggestion of her stepdaughter. “I was living in New Jersey and she said, ‘Why don’t you live in La Jolla?’ And I said, ‘Why not?’ So here I am,” White explained. It was a good suggestion, too, because White said La Jolla is her favorite of all the places she’s lived. “The climate is so lovely and people are so nice,” she said. When she initially moved to La Jolla, she lived in the Shores where she enjoyed walking her dogs, Montgomery and Chrissy, which is how everyone came to know her. She said

Curiosity drives achievement, say Explorers Club honorees By Doris Lee McCoy If you have a yearning for adventure and exploration, one place to find it is at the Explorers Club. It is an international organization, filled with people who want to climb new mountains, dive in the deepest waters, pass over Earth’s poles, and break new records. The club’s 109th annual dinner was held on March 16 at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City to honor John Glenn and Scott Carpenter (the two surviving astronauts from the Mercury Seven team), and producer/ director James Cameron. Glenn and Carpenter each received the “Legendary Explorers Medal” at the party, Cameron received the “Explorers Medal.” During the reception, the honorees were asked to name the most important trait an explorer can posses. Both Glenn and Cameron agreed it is curiosity; if one wishes to expand one’s horizons in any way, it all starts with curiosity. Jim and Mark Fowler usually bring exotic animals to the event, and it is not unusual to see a falcon flying around the top of the dining room ceiling.

Later, after Glenn left NASA, he was elected to the Ohio Senate as a Democrat, serving for four terms.

Good intention becomes a nightmare in Globe’s ‘A Doll’s House’

Let’s Review

By diana Saenger

T

Real-life couple Fred Arsenault and Gretchen Hall play lead roles in Henrik Ibsen’s ‘A Doll’s House’ at The Old Globe Theatre. Henry DiRocco

hese days it’s not uncommon for married couples to keep secrets from one another. As playwright Henrik Ibsen reveals in his 1879 drama, “A Doll’s House,” secrets were also a part of marriages in those days — and when unveiled, just as grave. As the curtain rises, it’s bitter cold in Norway but Nora Helmer (Gretchen Hall) is on a Christmas high after returning home with gifts for her children and husband Torvald (Fred Arsenault). Nora is even more excited when old friend Kristine Linde (Nisi Sturgis) shows up. Nora is proud to be in a position to

help her friend get a job, using her husband’s recent promotion at the bank to see it through. The light dims on this happy-go-lucky marriage when the subject of money arises. Nora is already spending her husband’s pay raise, but Torvald warns her not to, as the money won’t appear for months and they need to spend wisely. The giddy delight Nora beams about her life begins to fade when she must face the music over what she’s already done. Years earlier, when her husband was ill, Nora forged her dead father’s signature on a loan. She has continued to borrow on the household money Torvald gives her to make small payments on the loan to the bank. Greed is an exciting element in any play and Ibsen must have been rubbing his hands together and smiling broadly when he thought up this plot. That’s because fellow banker Nils Krogstad (Richard Baird) is licking his lips at the chance to blackmail

The cast of “A Doll’s House” is superb. Real-life couple Hall and Arsenault bring extra chemistry to their roles, which also ups the drama factor when it appears everything about their lives as they know it is in jeopardy. Hall’s transformation from giddy housewife and mother to desperate woman worried her husband will discover her secret, make every minute of this intriguing scenario tick with intensity.

Arsenault is equally versatile in moving from a loving and passionate husband to Nora’s worse nightmare when the facts of what she’s done are revealed to his horror and perceived shame. Tensions increase when Nora learns her husband wants to fire Krogstad from his job. She knows Krogstad will reveal all if she can’t save his job at the bank. She begins to seek help from her friend Dr. Rank (Jack Koenig) but when he starts to come on to her, she can’t seem to find a way out of her dilemma. Back in the day, some audiences thought Ibsen’s surprising end to the play was inappropriate, however, he maintained it should be presented just as he wrote it. Adapted by Anne-Charlotte Hanes Harvey and Kirsten Brandt, and directed by Brandt, the world premiere adaptation of “A Doll’s House” is part of the Globe’s Classics Up Close series. It’s well worth the price of a ticket, then you can have your own thoughts about the ending.


www.lajollalight.com FROM 10 QUESTIONS, B1 Why? A recent university study disclosed that we taxpayers are handing out at least $71,000,000,000 per year in religious exemptions. A minimum, mind you. It could be double or triple that given more data transparency. Instead of subsidizing the “edifice complexes” to nonexistent deities worshipped by those who then intrude on the workings of governments and the lives of individuals, our tax revenues could significantly be better applied to more worthwhile projects — like getting us humans out there colonizing other hunks of rock in the galaxy; thus vastly improving our survival by not having all of our money down on one piece of real estate. (To add insult to injury by upping the handouts even more, the U.S. Congress, our new rep included, just passed HR-592 (Federal Disaster Assistance Nonprofit Fairness Act of 2013) by a wide margin.

Kiwanis salute La Jollan Sherry Ahern for years of commmunity service La Jolla Kiwanis Club recently honored volunter Sherry Ahern, first vice-president of the La Jolla Community Center, with its 2013 Service Award. “Sherry’s energy and passion for helping others is an inspiration to all of us,” said Ruth Yansick, Community Center Board CEO. “Her enthusiasm is only matched by her incredible energy.” Chartered in 1925, La Jolla Kiwanis Club raises more than $200,000 annually through the La Jolla Half Marathon and other benefits, which it dispenses to many charities, most youth-oriented. The group meets Fridays for lunch at La Jolla Presbyterian Church. Ahern was born in Detroit and moved with her family to San Diego in 1960. She attended San Diego State University where she majored in political science. She met her husband, Kevin, in La Jolla in 1985, where they have lived and raised their children, Brianna and Brendan. Ahern’s credo of community service dates back to age 10, when she said she enlisted her friends to put on shows at the Hebrew Home for the Aged, where her grandmother, Alice, was a resident. She was a full-time volunteer for the Helen Woodward Animal Center for 10 years. With her foundation she created The Fling, its yearly gala, where she became the head of underwriting. This gala has raised millions of dollars and continues to succeed. Ahern joined the board of Friends of La

Jolla Elementary (the non-profit foundation of the school) 21 years ago. Most notably, she established the La Jolla Open Aire Farmers Market in 1998, which has grown to be the largest in San Diego County, and has raised more than $2 million for programs at the school. Upon learning her son had diabetes, Ahern joined the development board of the Whittier Institute for Diabetes. For the next 10 years, she was the auction chair for its fundraiser, working to raise money for research toward the cure of type 1 diabetes. She and her husband are on the board of the Pediatric Diabetes Research Center, and the Diabetes Research Center. In 2001, Ahern was elected a La Jolla Town Council trustee, where she served the community for three years. In 2008, she joined the founding board of the La Jolla Community Center and helped create the first adult center in the area. Also in 2008, she founded the La Jolla Art & Wine Festival, a juried art show in downtown La Jolla with all proceeds going to La Jolla Elementary, Bird Rock Elementary, Torrey Pines Elementary and Muirlands Middle schools. In April 2012, she was honored with City of Hope’s Mother of the Year Award. On March 8, Ahern and fellow La Jollan, Kathryn Stephens, received the Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary Women of Dedication Award. — Nancy Walters


www.lajollalight.com FROM HOUSING EXHIBIT, B1 something was lacking,” explained Singer, who is a trustee of the La Jolla Town Council. After hearing the Historical Society’s Executive Director Heath Fox speak at a luncheon, Singer approached him with the idea of adding the information that for many minorities, early La Jolla was not offering them their dream homes, or any homes. “If this is a report on La Jolla’s past, the way things were has to be here,” Singer said. The “Paradise Lost” display is located near the Houses & Architecture section of the current exhibit and consists of three panels. The first panel illustrates a typical exclusionary covenant from a 1917 property deed. The second panel offers a brief history of the emergence and eventual decline of the discrimination that prevented non-whites from buying homes in La Jolla. It refers to local historian Mary Ellen Stratthaus, who wrote a long report in 1996 for the American Jewish Historical Society called “Flaw in the Jewel: Housing Discrimination Against Jews in La Jolla, California.” The third panel contains early advertising brochures La Jolla realtors used to lure potential buyers while also assuring them that La Jolla property Restrictions and Improvements included “the restriction of ownership or residence to members of the Caucasian Race.” (At this time, Jews were considered non-white.) The racial and religious discrimination that emerged in La Jolla’s early period, to some extent, reflected attitudes throughout the country and the world (especially antiSemitism and segregation), but in other ways spoke to the exclusivity of La Jolla. The “La Jolla Covenant” or “Gentleman’s Agreement” was a protected code of conduct that allowed for non-whites to be restricted from buying homes, joining country clubs, and owning businesses in La Jolla. The real estate agents carried out these covenants by banning For Sale signs on front lawns, keeping sales hidden, and by displaying special cards on their dashboards warning sellers that their customer was Jewish.

Sellers would leave their porch lights on if they didn’t want non-white buyers. In 1948, the Supreme Court ruled such covenants unenforceable (Shelley v. Kraemer), but the practice continued well into the 1960s. It was the formation of UC San Diego under renowned scientist Roger Revelle (1909-1991) that helped put an end to housing discrimination in La Jolla. As Revelle explained in an interview for the 25th anniversary of UCSD, “I said, and consistently said it always, from 1950 on, you can’t have a university without having Jewish professors. The Real Estate Broker’s Association and their supporters in La Jolla had to make up their minds whether they wanted a university or an anti-Semitic covenant. You couldn’t have both.” Now La Jolla is approximately 30 percent Jewish, with a thriving Jewish community, one of the largest in San Diego, including three synagogues. “We are glad Howard brought this to the Historical Society,” Fox said. “The name of the exhibit comes from the same brochures that contain these discriminatory policies. “We are an educational institution, so we need to provide continuity with the past and show how it affects society so we can think about our social practices, attitudes and values.”

Sea lions and seals are the same thing. False! They are cousins, together with the walrus. Sea lions have small flaps for outer ears. Seals Sea lion lack external ears altogether. Sea lions are noisy. Seals are quieter. Seals are generally smaller and more aqua-dynamic than sea lions. This makes them fast in the water, but basic belly crawlers on terra firma. Sea lions, on the other hand, are able to “walk” on land by rotating their hind flippers forward and underneath their big bodies. This is why they are more likely to be employed in aquaria and marine shows. — oceanservice.noaa.gov

Breast cancer survivors gather at spa’s closing salute to them By Ashley Mackin he SK Sanctuary in Bird Rock held its final spa night for breast cancer survivors on March 26, just days before the spa closed its doors for good on March 30. The monthly spa nights have been a tradition since April 2001, when plastic surgeon Dr. Stephen Krant began offering free spa treatments to the patients for whom he performed breast reconstruction surgery. The facility is closing after a collective decision to sell the building and consolidate the SK Institute. Under the umbrella of the nonprofit SK Institute, which also oversees Krant’s nearby clinic, the spa was designed to offer a wholebody care experience. “It’s about nurturing the soul and wellness of the patients, not just treating the body,” he said. The gatherings also offered a chance for patients and survivors to come together, share stories and have a sense of community. For their final celebration, they did just that. Several speakers in the breast cancer community thanked Dr. Krant and his wife, Lynn, including a longtime survivor, a representative from a breast cancer awareness organization, a male survivor, a patient just completing treatment and others. As SK Institute board member Dani Grady walked up to speak, she pulled ribbons and decorations out of her bra — which she apparently uses instead of pockets — joking that when you’ve had a mastectomy, always wear an animal print bra. “We know what it’s like to have a really bad day, we know what it’s like to breathe hard and not know what the next thing we’re going to do is. We also know what it’s like to wonder who cares,” she said. “The gift Lynn and Dr. Krant (gave) us was to know that people really care.” Grady then wrapped the long pink ribbon from her bra around Lynn Krant and red heart decorations around Dr. Krant. Despite Kleenex being passed around, several people made the crowd laugh, as if they were all in on one big inside joke. For example, Channel 10 anchor Bill Griffith, representing the male survivor population, explained what happened when someone asked to see a photo of his mastectomy. “I said, it kind of looks like this,” squeezing one eye shut in a tight wink. “After a double mastectomy, it looks like this,” he said, squeezing both eyes tight (Dr. Krant sometimes refers to a mastectomy scar as the wink).

Helen Knoll Foundation founder Laura Knoll shares a memory of her late mother.

Channel 10 anchor and breast cancer survivor Bill Griffith offers his perspective.

Returning to seriousness, Griffith said, “My definition of love is doing something for somebody with no expectation of getting anything back. These folks have no expectation of getting anything in return.” In addition to sharing stories, the spa nights also provided education about resources and services. On this night, Laura Knoll, founder of the Helen Knoll Foundation, shared memories of her late mother, for whom the foundation is named, and explained what it does. After her mother was diagnosed at age 35, Knoll said her mother was offered a free massage through her insurance company. “I just remember how special an experience it was for her … for this 30 minutes, she felt beautiful and felt like people cared about her and that she was important and that she mattered and people were willing to give their time and practice to her. I can’t image how much it has meant to the 4,000 people you’ve helped here,” she said. After fighting cancer for 10 years, Helen Knoll died in 2006. In lieu of flowers, the family requested monetary donations go toward a cause that may have helped her or other younger women with early detection screenings. Finding none, they decided to

start their own. Knoll cited the statistic that every 30 minutes a woman under the age of 40 is diagnosed with breast cancer. So the Helen Knoll Foundation shows women ages 18-40 the different screenings available and risk factors. Information about the foundation can be found at HelenKnollFoundation.org Other statistics show that one in eight women over age 70 will be diagnosed with breast cancer. One of those women was Sherry Frantz, whose comments closed the event, She was diagnosed at age 70 in August 2012. After detailing how she found out she had breast cancer and the weeks of tests and appointments that followed, she focused her speech on how she heals. “We all have to take something out of each day to enjoy … no matter what is going on,” Frantz said. As to how she does that, she used the quote Rose Kennedy gave after a reporter asked her how she coped following the assassinations of her two sons (former president John F. Kennedy and Senator Robert Kennedy): “Birds sing after a storm, don’t they? Following the speeches, patients were treated to manicures, pedicures, haircuts, makeup lessons, massages and facials.

In gallops the King of Condiments, hurray for horseradish!

Kitchen Shrink By Catharine L. Kaufman

A

s a little girl, I hovered around the kitchen after school, especially when my beloved grandma, a governess and trained chef, came over to give my mom cooking lessons. Grandma Eva was one of those old-school European cooks who made everything painstakingly from scratch. One afternoon she warned me to steer clear and go outside and play, as this particular lesson was going to be a teary-eyed one. More curious than ever, I stood my ground and sat safely in a corner out of harm’s way as grandma started shredding this knarly, knobby tubular root until her knuckles practically bled. True to her

warning, her eyes welled up with tears and stung like crazy even several minutes after she finished her prep work. Decades later, horseradish has become the King of Condiments, enlivening holiday tables and everyday meals. Here’s a primer to guide you through the horseradish world. Root of the Root This ancient root is a member of the mustard family (and first cousin to wasabi). It has been used for culinary, medicinal and ritual purposes since Biblical times (the original bitter herb used on the Passover Seder table to remind Jews of their enslavement under Pharaoh). No country holds a solid claim to the origins of horseradish, although it is possibly from Asia, Germany or the Mediterranean. Ancient Greeks and Egyptians prized sexy and soothing horseradish as a balm for backaches, a syrup to quiet coughs and an aphrodisiac to jump-start the romantic wiring. Horseradish spread to

How did horseradish

get its name? ■ The word “horse” is believed to denote large size and coarseness; “radish” comes from the Latin radix, meaning root. Another theory: The Germans called it meerrettich. The German word meer, sounds like “mare” in English. Perhaps mareradish eventually became “horseradish.” Scandinavian countries and England via Central Europe during the Renaissance. By the late 1600s, the Brits embraced horseradish, which became a staple condiment for beef and oysters. The snappy root was soon grown at inns and coach stations, blended in cordials and served to energize weary travelers.

Horseradish contains stimulants that dial up enzymes to aid digestion, anti-inflammatories that ease creaky joints and stiff muscles, and assorted antioxidant and detoxing isothiocyanates — the volatile oils that give horseradish its famous fire in the belly. It is even rubbed on the forehead to calm a throbbing headache. Tubular Tips n Before grating this pungent root, wash, trim and scrape thoroughly, and toss the core. Store for up to four weeks in the refrigerator. n Horseradish is benign until crushed or grated, whereupon it releases its mighty oils. So prep or process with care — best in a blender or food processor. n Since vinegar is a stabilizing agent, add it immediately to the grated root to calm the fires and produce a milder condiment. Store in an airtight container in the fridge. n Preserve shredded horseradish in vinegar before using, even in cooking. n When heated, horseradish loses its zip, so to maintain its pungent flavor, add to the dish at the end of cooking.

It was a perfect spring morning for the annual egg hunt

T

he little ones arrived with enthusiasm, extra energy and eagle eyes for the annual Easter Egg Hunt hosted by La Jolla Recreation Center on March 30. It was 5 - 4 - 3 - 2 - 1 and they were off across the field gathering all the plastic eggs their baskets could hold, looking for that one “silly faced” egg that would bring them a special prize. Participants received a bag of candy treats after the hunt and could opt to color a bunny picture or make an Easter craft. Peter Rabbit was on hand for photos. Photos by Susan DeMaggio

You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, this information can be obtained from one of the following three companies: LPS Agency Sales & Posting at (714) 7302727, or visit the Internet Web site www.lpsasap.com (Registration required to search for sale information) or Priority Posting & Publishing at (714) 573-1965 or visit the Internet Web site www.priorityposting.com (Click on the link for “Advanced Search” to search for sale information), or auction.com at 1-800-280-2832 or visit the Internet Web site www.auction.com, using the Trustee Sale No. shown above. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. P1030569 4/4, 4/11, 04/18/2013.

This is one of the many Internet memes of La Jolla Jiu Jitsu instructor Clark Gracie (left) which refer to him as the ‘Ridiculously Photogenic Jiu Jitsu Guy.’ The photo was taken at a Jui Jitsu tournament in New York.

Going Viral

La Jolla Jiu Jitsu teacher and champion fighter is the center of the latest Internet time-kill, the series of “ridiculously photogenic” memes. These memes are superimposed on photos of people who look great in situations where they typically wouldn’t and include a joke, funny comment or fake caption. Clark Gracie, who teaches Jiu Jitsu at the La Jolla Sports Club, joins a ridiculously photogenic marathon runner and a ridiculously photogenic surgery girl in these widespread memes. By being photographed looking great mid-action during a Jiu Jitsu match, Gracie has since made appearances on “Good Morning America,” where he said of his ability to look good under pressure: “I try to stay pretty relaxed and not get overheated during the tournament.” Some of the more popular captions for the photo include: “Doesn’t need a triangle choke, to take your breath away” and “Locks up your arm, and your heart.”

Astronaut talks about wife’s brain injuries at Scripps conference By Steven Mihailovich Capt. Mark Kelly is a bona fide American hero. He commanded four space shuttle missions, including the Endeavor’s final voyage, flew 39 combat missions over Iraq during the Gulf War, and has logged more than 6,000 flight hours as a Navy pilot. As the keynote speaker at the eighth annual Brain Injury Rehabilitation Conference, March 22-23, Kelly was qualified to address the roomful of physicians, neurosurgeons, therapists and other brain injury specialists for another reason. Kelly is the husband of former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, who was shot through the head during the attempted assassination on Jan. 8, 2011. Talking about that topic forced Kelly to choke up and hold back tears a couple of times during his hour-long presentation. “As Gaby entered Congress for the first time in 2007, I thought I had the risky job,” Kelly told the audience. “I’d flown 39 combat missions. I’d landed

on an aircraft carrier nearly 400 times. By that point in my career, I’d flown two flights into space already. I thought I had the risky job. But as it would turn out, Gaby is the one who would nearly lose her life serving her country.” In the speech, the toughness Kelly showed during his daring exploits and rigorous, and often dangerous, training contrasted with the vulnerability he experienced in helping his wife through the ongoing recovery. The audience was often riveted hearing this paragon of American courage and stoicism talk about feeling nearly helpless at times. “On Jan. 8, 2011, there was no countdown clock,” Kelly said. “For the big events in my life, like a space flight or a combat mission, they normally start at a specific time. With a space flight, you even have a countdown clock going toward zero. But on Jan. 8, the day Gaby was injured, there was no clock. Just the ringing of my phone when I got a call that put me on this trajectory — this crazy

trying to figure out, OK, what I do now?” Kelly wove intricate details of glorious victories, horrific setbacks and excruciating doubts into a

message of hope and perseverance that reverberated with an audience that daily treats patients suffering from traumatic brain injury (TBI). Of course, getting shot through the head isn’t the only source of TBI, and the 1.7 million annual cases in the United States and more than 300,000 sports-related concussions each year attest to that fact. The two-day conference was held at the Sheraton Carlsbad Resort and Spa and hosted by the Rehabilitation Center at Scripps Memorial Hospital. Mild traumatic brain injury or concussion, especially in sports and in youth, as well as the use of robotics for TBI were the major themes this year. The annual conference has grown from almost 30, mostly local attendees in 2006, to more than 200 participants from around the world this year, according to Michael Lopatz, medical director of the Scripps Medical Rehabilitation Center and Brain Injury Program.

the country spoke about the latest advances and techniques in research and treatment, including Dr. Sanjay Ghosh, neurosurgeon at Scripps La Jolla Trauma Center, who spoke about modern care of severe TBI in intensive care units and trauma centers. With thousands of returning Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans suffering from TBI and the publicity surrounding tragedies such as the suicide of former San Diego Charger Junior Seau and the shooting of Giffords, the spotlight is squarely on TBI like never before. “I think that the increased awareness in TBI is extremely important,” Lopatz said. “Raising awareness about traumatic brain injury, especially for prevention of repeated concussions, and now what we’re learning (about) the long-term consequences of that, things that have been suggested to be the issues in some of our football players, these are the kinds of increasing awareness that I think is very positive and may help to save lives down the line.”
