Burns Drugs to close after 62 years in La Jolla


Two La Jollans honored as Women of the Year, A1

Burns Drugs will close its door next month, after more than six decades in business on Girard Avenue in the Village.


■ Some former Burns employees

to join CVS staff on Eads Avenue BY PAT SHERMAN ustomers of one of La Jolla’s oldest independently owned retail stores, Burns Drugs at 7824 Girard Ave., are devastated to learn that the pharmacy their families have relied upon for more than six decades is going out of business. Burns Drugs co-owner Wayne Woods said the pharmacy counter will fill its last prescription on April 15. The store will stay open until sometime next month to sell off its remaining inventory. “It saddens my heart that this is happening, because this has been one of the cornerstones of the La Jolla shopping experience,” Woods said, noting that many high-profile La Jollans preferred the anonymity of a small community pharmacy. Burns’ clientele has included everyone from Costco founder Sol Price to Helen and David Copley, Theodor Geisel (a.k.a. Dr. Suess), famed French sculptor Niki de Saint Phalle and baseball legend and announcer Jerry Coleman. “I’ve been here 23 years, and I’ve watched families grow up, watched their children grow up,” Woods said. “The same people have been coming in day-in and day-out. I know them by their first name. They know me.”

■ Proposed track location moved away from

Mormon temple but closer to condo complex BY PAT SHERMAN During the public comment portion of the San Diego Association of Governments’ (SANDAG) March 28 board meeting, UTC residents voiced frustration with the most recent realignment of a bridge that will take the trolley from the east side of Interstate 5 to the west, as it makes its way north through UTC. Though UTC residents were by-and-large pleased with the alignment proposed in a subsequent environmental report (SEIR) that was presented to them in a series of

workshops in late spring and early summer of 2013, last November the bridge was shifted 360 feet south, placing the elevated track within about 120 feet of the Cape La Jolla Gardens (CLJG) condo complex, on the east side of I-5. SANDAG representatives said the southward shift was made mostly at the behest of Mormon temple officials, despite the fact that the alignment presented to the community earlier that year in the SEIR


Friends of Coast Walk trail seek help with projects BY ASHLEY MACKIN In keeping with the tradition of La Jolla residents rallying together to get things done — think Mary Coakley-Munk renovating the restroom at Kellogg Park and Phyllis Minick’s Children’s Pool Walk beautification project — the Friends of Coast Walk are looking for new members to help preserve, restore and enhance the Coast Walk Trail. The group’s goals for the area that spans from Coast Walk to Cave Street parallel to Torrey Pines Road are to protect the environmentally sensitive bluffs, improve trail safety and appearance, and create an ongoing maintenance plan for the vegetation. The group has raised money to implement some enhancements to the ocean-side trail, but would like to garner more cash to finish their plans. Their immediate tasks include stabilizing the soil erosion along the walking path and planting new shrubbery to delineate it; providing general repair to the stairs and bridge; and restoring the hillside to prevent erosion and reduce fire hazard. Annual membership dues start at $350 and founding member Barbara Fake said all of it goes directly to trail projects. SEE COAST WALK, AA2

FROM BURNS DRUGS, AA1 Woods’ wife, Linda, also a pharmacist, worked in the store for 10 years, as did his daughters, Lindsay and Kaitlin, learning how to ring up sales, answer phones and interact with customers. In a letter to customers, Woods said his impending retirement and the financial viability of an independent drug store on Girard Avenue were the driving forces behind his decision. Prescription records for Burns customers will be transferred to CVS Pharmacy at 7525 Eads Ave. Woods said CVS management has promised to provide the same high level of personalized care, including Burns’ house charge program and local delivery service. Through an agreement with CVS, many of the Burns’ 38 full-time and part-time employees have been offered jobs at CVS. “You will continue to hear familiar voices on the phone and see familiar faces at the prescription counter (there),” Woods assured his customers, adding that serving the community has been “a dream come true.” “You are a small town full of great people,” he wrote to customers. “My family will miss your family. When we meet on the sidewalks of La Jolla, I hope to embrace you as you have embraced the Burns Drugs family for so many years. During a recent visit to the shop on Friday, April 4, plush Easter bunnies and other seasonal gifts lined shelves as customers wandered in and out, many yet unaware of the impending closure. “This is really sad news — sadder than sad,” said longtime customer Charlotte Baum. Woods said insurance companies are driving business away from independent pharmacies. Despite the robust business last Friday, Woods stated, “In recent years insurance companies have narrowed the profit margins such that the pharmacy is no longer a profitable business. When the pharmacy was purchased in 1991, there

were five independent pharmacies in the La Jolla area. Since then, mail order pharmacy and insurance reimbursement have taken its toll such that it is no longer a viable business model. We were the last independent pharmacy in La Jolla. “We as a group have decided that it’s time to go out on top,” Woods told La Jolla Light. “This is an expensive piece of real estate to have a drug store in. There just comes a time when it doesn’t make sense anymore.” The fact that Woods and his partners owned the building made it possible for them to stay open as long as they did, he said.

Lineage of a La Jolla legacy Robert Burns and Strother Kay founded Burns Drugs in 1952 in a two-story building constructed in the early 1900s that once served as a grocery store, Masonic lodge and U.S. post office. Woods and his partners bought the store from Orrin Gabsch and Art Keever in 1991, with Woods becoming its managing partner. The store has sold everything from

cards, gifts and cosmetics to wheelchairs and walkers, specializing in pharmaceutical compounding services, immunizations and travel vaccines. Woods noted Burns’ long-standing, symbiotic relationship with adjacent Warwick’s Bookstore, another La Jolla institution, founded in 1896 and believed to be the oldest continuously operated, family-owned bookstore in the country. Warwick’s owner Nancy Warwick called Burns’ closure “a tremendously sad loss for the community.” “The direct impact will be felt by many of us, as some of our basic routines will have to change” she said. “I’m not only losing the pharmacy that I’ve frequented most of my life, but I’m also losing a wonderful neighbor. Warwick’s and Burns have been joined at the hip since Burns opened in 1952. How fortunate we have all been to have had Burns as our neighborhood pharmacy, where the regulars are greeted by name, and the staff is always kind and caring.” Employee Nicole Caulfield said Burns was

FROM COAST WALK, AA1 The group’s wish list also includes an improved safety barrier along the trail at its entrance, and a redesign of the stairs for emergency access only, in the hope that will encourage pedestrians to use the trail instead of Coast Walk, a small street that runs alongside it at the trail’s beginning. Founding member Linda Fisler added that in a best-case scenario, she’d like to see the bridge replaced. Fake explained that three years ago, Coast Walk residents started noticing the trail was deteriorating and the invasive species Arundo had overgrown in the canyon. They formed a 501(c)(3) and reached out to the city of San Diego for guidance on how to alleviate the problems. “This could not be done without the support and guidance of city management,” she said. “They get (criticized), but that has not been the experience we’ve had with city managers from the departments of Streets, Stormwater, and Parks and Recreation, who have been guiding us through this and helping us.”

The cliffs formerly overgrown with invasive Arundo plant are in the process of being replanted. ASHLEY MACKIN The city started by suggesting the firm, Black Sage Environmental (BSE), for the Arundo removal and canyon replanting. BSE removed the Arundo in 2011 and is continuing to stabilize the cliffs and replant them with native species conducive to erosion control. Fisler said

“To Educate, Inspire and Encourage participation in the political process.”

as popular with its canine clientele as it was with humans. The establishment’s staff made it a habit to welcome four-legged visitors with biscuits and other nibbles. “The dogs themselves have become part of our entourage,” Caulfield said. “They come in first with their leashes pulling their owners. Some owners bring in special diet biscuits. We’d save them (at the counter) with the dog’s name on it.” Woods, who lives in La Costa and has made the 50-mile, round-trip trek to La Jolla for 28 years (previous working at University City Pharmacy), said he’ll continue to work a few days as a pharmacist closer to home, and use his semi-retirement to play golf and spend time with his wife. Woods said the new owners retained the rights to use the Burns name in the future if they choose, to highlight the building as a landmark or for any other purpose. “We don’t know what it’s going to be yet,” he said. “The buyer hasn’t come up with their plans, but they’ll probably do a lot of tenant improvements and make it another, glowing nice symbol of La Jolla.” ◆

native species are ideal because once they are established, they do not need to be watered regularly. Additionally, the Friends of Coast Walk called on BSE to renovate a portion of the trail that had eroded to the point people felt it was not safe to walk upon. The city was quick to approve the renovation because the trail is classified as a “street,” not a “park.” “It’s worked to our advantage because the city is more willing to grant permits when the project is paid for,” Fake said. “They just don’t have the resources to help, so they’ve welcomed our assistance.” To get these improvements done, Friends of Coast Walk (after securing the appropriate permits) would contract the repairs and split the bill among members. Fake noted that there are nine residences that are a part of the Friends of Coast Walk, and because they belong to couples, that makes 18 members. Though hoping for more members, Fake said the group would happily take one-time donations. To join the Coast Walk effort and for more details, e-mail ◆

FROM TROLLEY ALIGNMENT, AA1 was still farther from the temple than it was from CLJG or other area residences. During the SANDAG board meeting, a visibly incensed District 1 City Councilmember Sherri Lightner (whose district includes La Jolla) voiced her opposition to the change. “The environmental analysis that was circulated last year never considered the southern (currently proposed) alignment as approved November 15, 2013 (by SANDAG’s board),â€? Lightner said, reading from her March 25 letter to SANDAG Executive Director Gary Gallegos, who, along with County Supervisor and SANDAG board member Ron Roberts, met with Mormon temple officials months prior to the release of the community approved environmental report. Lightner noted that the SANDAG board voted Nov. 15 to “significantly modify the alignment over I-5 without considering the impacts of this change to the community.â€? The vote occurred just two days after CLJG HOA President Mike Krupp was first notified of the change in a meeting with SANDAG representatives. “Since this significant shift in alignment was rushed through the approval process without any community input and available environmental analysis, I request this item be immediately brought back to the board of directors for reconsideration,â€? Lightner said. “Once this item is docketed for reconsideration, the board should move to rescind the I-5 southern alignment ‌ and revert back to the northern alignment ... community members accepted after attending numerous neighborhood forums on this subject.â€? Encinitas City Councilmember and SANDAG board member Lisa Shaffer said

SANDAG Board members (and County Supervisors) Dianne Jacob and Ron Roberts listen as Cape La Jolla Gardens residents voice frustration over an 11th-hour trolley bridge repositioning that would impact their condominium complex. PAT SHERMAN she will e-mail board chair Jack Dale to request that the item be placed on the executive committee’s agenda. (The executive committee decides whether items are docketed for SANDAG’s regular board meetings.) On March 13, SANDAG officials met with more than 100 CLJG and UTC residents to answer concerns about the southward bridge shift, at which time the only justification SANDAG offered as to why Mormon temple officials requested such a wide berth between their facility and the trolley bridge was a concern with the bridge’s visual impact. Temple representatives have not

attended SANDAG’s meetings with CLJG residents, and did not respond to requests for comment from La Jolla Light. A representative for Ron Roberts referred the Light’s questions about his meeting with temple representatives to SANDAG. At press time, SANDAG’s Gallegos was out of town and unavailable for further comment. CLJG HOA president Michael Krupp attended last year’s UTC area workshops, where the alignment least impacting residents was presented. He said overall he is very supportive of public transportation and the trolley extension. “I told many people at the time I thought this was something we all should support

and be behind,â€? Krupp said during SANDAG’s March 28 board meeting. “None of our (residents) ‌ sent in any comments. In fact, I said to people, ‘everything’s fine.’ â€? At Krupp’s request, SANDAG representatives offered a presentation on the new alignment to CLJG residents in January 2014 that “raised more questions than it settled, and that led to the larger meeting on March 13,â€? he said. “That meeting at times got a little raucous,â€? Krupp said, adding residents still have a “tremendous number of questions.â€? County Supervisor and SANDAG board member Dianne Jacob requested a report on statements made by SANDAG staff regarding the realignment. “People are concerned that they didn’t get a chance to adequately weigh in or comment,â€? said Jacob, who did not serve on the SANDAG board last year. “If that’s true, that concerns me. ‌ If the trolley is running right next to or within 100 feet of someone’s bedroom, that would concern me if I lived in this complex, so I would really appreciate knowing more about this issue and the process and what occurred.â€? During the meeting Gallegos responded, “This is a complicated line that goes through several communities. ‌ We were trying to balance a lot of comments we were getting. ... People were worried about sound, people were worried about views and so staff was trying to balance all the impacts to get a project that works and (provides) the greatest public good and the least public harm.â€? Without referencing his meeting with Gallegos and temple officials, Supervisor Roberts said it would be “helpful to develop a chronologyâ€? of the two days prior to the Nov. 15 SANDAG vote, and what the Nov. 13 meeting between Krupp and SANDAG representatives entailed. â—†

Fellow Woman of the Year and La Jolla resident Barbara Bry (left) with State Assemblymember and speaker-elect Toni Atkins PHOTOS BY ASHLEY MACKIN

Two La Jollans honored as Women of the Year BY ASHLEY MACKIN a Jollans Barbara Bry and Cindy Greatrex were among nine women honored for community service by California Assemblymember and speaker-elect Toni Atkins during a Women of the Year ceremony, March 28, in her downtown offices. Residents of the cities Atkins represents (including Solana Beach, Del Mar, La Jolla, Imperial Beach, Coronado and San Diego) were asked to recommend women in local leadership roles. Some 25 names were submitted. “I want you to know you were recommended by your friends, your peers and your community,” Atkins told the honorees. “So you should know people recognize your leadership, they know the work you do and they


value it. So if they value it, I need to make sure you are recognized and it is an honor to do that.” The celebration marked the end of Women’s History Month (observed in March), and Atkins took the opportunity to herald women’s achievements and acknowledge that there is more to be done. “We’ve made great strides in the march to full equality from winning universal voting rights to assuming roles once reserved only for men. … Over the years, women’s voices have grown louder in the boardroom, in science labs and in the halls of government — including the state assembly,” Atkins said. “We can all be proud of the progress that has been made in our lifetime but we will never forget that we still have

work left to do. So, while Women’s History Month gives us a chance to celebrate all we’ve achieved and accomplished together, the best way to honor that legacy is to ensure that every woman has equality under the law, in the workplace, in the classroom and in every facet of society. I have a great deal of respect for women who choose to enter public service — whatever that role is.” In the case of Bry — CEO of Blackbird Ventures, which invests in early stage technology companies — her public service is in “leveling the playing field for women and girls in business, healthcare and politics,” Atkins said.

The nine Women of the Year with State Assemblymember Toni Atkins at the close of the ceremony are Patricia Ann Yim Cowett, Gerri Retman-Opper, Cindy Greatrex, Barbara Bry, Toni Atkins, Betty Jones, Linda LeGerrette, Mayda Winter, Patricia McQuater and Nancy Weare. FROM WOMEN OF THE YEAR, A1 Bry is involved in organizations such as Athena San Diego, which promotes women’s involvement in life sciences and technology; and Run Women Run (the mere mention of which drew yells and applause from the audience), a nonpartisan political action committee that mentors and supports pro-choice women in elected and appointed offices. Bry also serves on the board of directors of Planned Parenthood for the Pacific Southwest, the San Diego Jewish Women’s Foundation and the San Diego Jewish Community Foundation, among others. Bry later told La Jolla Light her path to activism started with watching how her mother was treated in the workplace. When her mother was appointed the first female vice president of a Philadelphia ad agency in the 1960s, she was paid less than her male counterparts. “There was nothing she could do about it,” Bry said. Further, when it came to her mother buying a home, despite having enough money to pay for it, she still had to have a male cosigner. “Seeing that as a teenager, I became

Cindy Greatrex (center) with La Jolla Town Council members Steve Haskins and Yolanda de Riquer PHOTOS BY ASHLEY MACKIN committed to making sure that in my life, I was going to do all I could to help other women,” said Bry, who added that she felt honored to be recognized by Atkins, “one of my all-time heroes.” For Greatrex, her contributions to the field of biotechnology and to her

community earned her the recognition. Atkins explained that Greatrex’s work “provides remote medical care via software and other medical devices, as well as genomic sequencing, so that companies can decode and analyze molecular structures. It’s a wonderful industry here in

San Diego and we’re so fortunate that San Diego is leading the way in that area.” Atkins also noted Greatrex’s involvement as outgoing president of the La Jolla Town Council, current president of Independent La Jolla, secretary for the La Jolla Community Center and board member for the La Jolla Rec Center. Greatrex is also involved in Adopt a Special Kid, a group that promotes adoption of children in foster care; International Orphan Care of San Diego; and the San Diego/Jalal Abad sister city foundation, which provides medical and education services to Afghan citizens; and others. Of the recognition, Greatrex said, “I’m honored to represent La Jolla and honored to work with Toni Atkins and her staff. It’s wonderful to have an assemblymember and majority leader who supports women so much, and the San Diego community.” The other seven honorees were Patricia Ann Yim Cowett and Betty Jones from Coronado, Linda LeGerrette and Patricia McQuater from San Diego, Gerri RetmanOpper from Solana Beach, Nancy Weare from Del Mar, and Mayda Winter from Imperial Beach. ◆

UCSD’s Osher Institute to mark 40th anniversary at dinner gala


sher Lifelong Learning Institute at UC San Diego will celebrate its 40th anniversary with a byinvitation dinner Wednesday, April 30 in the Great Hall at UCSD’s International Center. The event is expected to attract more than 200 Osher Institute members, as well as instructors and supporters. Founded in 1974 as the Institute for Retired Professionals, Osher Institute had modest beginnings with a handful of classes held at off-campus sites and members’ homes. Forty years later, the Osher Institute has its own on-campus building where it provides a wide range of course offerings and special events for its membership of 700 retirees and semi-retirees over age 50. These lifelong students include retired diplomats, professors, engineers, doctors, lawyers and others who desire to continue their intellectual and social growth. Dean of UCSD San Diego Extension Mary Walshok, who was among the leaders who helped establish the Osher

Institute, will provide the event’s welcoming remarks. The gala’s scheduled keynote speaker will be Mary G.F. Bitterman, president of the Bernard Osher Foundation. The San Francisco-based foundation is named for Bernard Osher, a philanthropist who supports 117 campus-based learning institutes in his name around the country. UCSD’s Osher Institute took its name in 2006, when Osher added it to a growing list of universities to which he committed financial support for higher education, with an arts emphasis. Following an initial $350,000 gift, the Bernard Osher Foundation has established a sustaining $1 million endowment at UCSD. “This is a milestone that deserves to be recognized beyond our doors,” said Osher Institute President Jim Wyrtzen. “We’ve never been more proud of the high level of intellectually stimulating programs, topics and events we provide for our members.” Learn more at ◆

O. Morris Sievert

1922 – 2014 O. Morris Sievert, a well-known San Diego community leader and philanthropist, died March 19 in La Jolla, California. Raised in Missouri, he earned a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering Degree in 1944 at the Missouri University of Science & Technology. In 1959, he graduated from

the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Program for Senior Executives. He served in the United States Navy from 1944 to 1946 aboard a ship in the Pacific as a Lieutenant JG, was involved in the liberation of the Philippines and continued his service in the Navy Reserves after the war. He was a staunch and generous advocate for veterans throughout his life. Throughout his distinguished career as an engineer, corporate executive and pioneering leader in gas turbine engine design and manufacturing, Morris contributed to the development of technological advancements in the aerospace and oil and gas industries. He played a significant role in the economic development of

San Diego. When Morris came to the Solar Aircraft Company in 1957, its management had already concluded the company’s best future business opportunity was to produce industrial gas turbine engines for the oil industry, and gave him that goal. For the next 25 years, Morris led Solar Aircraft Company’s strategic growth from an aerospace subcontractor to one of the world’s leading manufacturers of industrial gas turbine engines, serving as President of Solar Aircraft and Vice President of International Harvester. In 1974 Solar changed its name to Solar Turbines International and Morris became its President. Today the company is a subsidiary of Caterpillar with revenues of more than 3 billion

dollars annually. After retiring from Solar in 1986, Morris continued his executive career, first with Nucorp Energy as Vice Chairman, Oilfield Manufacturing, Service & Supply and then with Deposition Technology, where he served as chairman of the board, CEO and president. Committed to the San Diego community, Morris twice served as president of the United Way of San Diego County. He was a member of many boards including Scripps Memorial Hospital, San Diego Gas and Electric Co., the San Diego Chamber of Commerce, California Chamber of Commerce, California Manufacturers Association and Economic Development Corporation. He also served as a trustee of the University of San Diego and National

University and was a member of Q.E.D. He was particularly proud of the role he played in the development of the San Diego Holiday Bowl. He was named President of the 1991 Bowl Game. In his leisure activities he loved golfing at the La Jolla Country Club and was an ardent fresh water and ocean fisherman. He is preceded in death by his wife of 60 years La Wanda Hughes and survived by his wife Eloise “Dudie” Ogden Sievert, four daughters: Karen Baker, Tomball, Texas; Kathy Guccione, Encino, California; Kristie Sievert, Portland, Oregon; and Kimberly Wheeler, San Diego, California; and eight grandchildren and nine great grandchildren. A memorial celebration for Morris will be held on Wednesday, April 16,

from 4 to 6 p.m. at the La Jolla Country Club. In lieu flowers, please send donations to Scripps Memorial Hospital Hospice. Please sign the guest book online at www.

BY ASHLEY MACKIN Writer and part-time La Jolla resident Susan Allen Toth asserts that grief and loss are part of everyone’s life, and if you’re lucky, so are love and joy. Toth experienced all this and more during her years caring for her husband, architect James Stageberg, through the end of his life. She documents their day-to-day trials in a new book, “No Saints Around Here: A Caregiver’s Days,” which she will read from 11 a.m. Saturday, April 12 at the La Jolla Library, 7555 Draper Ave. “This is supposed to be a gift to other caregivers, because it was a gift for me to be able to write about it,” Toth said. “This is not a how-to, this is a how it was for me.” Her husband passed away in 2010, a decade after he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and later dementia. “In the last 18 months, when I knew I was looking down the dark tunnel, to help myself I turned to occasionally writing about topics I was coming across,” she explained. The essay chapters in the book are dated. “It’s the book I wanted to have after everyone gave me books like ‘how caregiving made me a better person’ and

Susan Allen Toth will discuss her book, ‘No Saints Around Here: A Caregiver’s Days,’ 11 a.m. Saturday, April 12 at the La Jolla Library. COURTESY I’d be thinking, ‘this is not what being a caregiver is about.’ ” Instead, Toth said being a caregiver is about love. “I don’t know how people do this if they don’t really love the person,”

she said. Of caring for her late husband, she added, “I would do this again in a heartbeat, but I’m glad I don’t have to.” A contagious grin comes across Toth’s face when she talks about James’

“irresistible” smile, which shines back at her from a photo on her bedside. “James was a wonderful man, but it is not his book,” she said. “It’s about me being cross, frustrated, angry, depressed, getting on with things and finding ways to get on with it.” Sometimes that included slamming dishes down in the kitchen in frustration when James wouldn’t eat what she made, and feeling guilty about it and going to therapy to find ways to manage the feelings. “This is not meant to be a humorous book, but there is dark humor in it,” she said. Chapters include “My adventures with gentlemen’s pads,” which chronicles the realization deep in his illness that James could not make it to the bathroom in time and needed adult diapers. “But we weren’t going to call them that. We were going to call them ‘gentleman’s pads,’ ” she reminisced. Her understanding of “gentleman’s pads” and other facets of caring for a loved one was what made a speaking engagement with Toth appealing to La Jolla Library head librarian Catherine Greene.

Lightning Strikes Twice La Jollan hits two holes-inone within three months BY ASHLEY MACKIN atrick McGee, a La Jolla resident and lifelong golfer, scored two holes-in-one in three months at the Tecolote Canyon Golf Course near Clairemont. In both cases, he referred to the shot as a “lucky bounce of the ball,” and “a surprise.” McGee said he and a golfing buddy, “couldn’t see the ball so we walked

The second was at the ninth hole of the same course, 142 yards from the tee, in late March. An eight-year resident of La Jolla, McGee shares his time between La

Jolla and his native Ireland. For the last 17 years, he would spend a few months there golfing. He will be going from the Jewel to the Emerald Isle again next month, but now limits his golfing to the United States. Even though he asserts the shots are “no big deal,” McGee got his photo taken with a banner indicating he is a member of the Sam Snead Hole-in-One Club. ◆

“With all the baby boomers around who will potentially have some degree of difficulty as they get older, there’s a lot of concern out there with how this older generation will be taken care of and the responsibilities of their adult children,” Greene said. “Susan has insight on that. After talking to her, I saw that and realized she’s worth listening to. She has something to say.” Toth is a longtime travel writer, including work for The New York Times. She and James traveled the world during their 25-year marriage, though they called Minnesota home. Doing their best to avoid Minnesota winters, they often visited Australia and New Zealand. However, the last vacation they took together was to La Jolla due to James’ limitations. “I discovered La Jolla and never looked back,” Toth said. “I decided when everything was over, I would move here.” Toth has penned nine books, mostly about travel. She said she always orients her work as a “gift” to someone, such as when she wrote stories about growing up in the Midwest or travel pieces about accommodations off the beaten path. The gift within “No Saints Around Here,” she said is, “encouragement, support and relief. I want someone to read it and think ‘oh, good, she felt that way, too’ and get some possible ideas of what to do. I want people to know what goes with this because none of us are saints.” ◆

La Jolla Youth Baseball poised for second half of season BY TOM MURPHY La Jolla Youth Baseball

Real Es tate TODAY


La Jolla Youth Baseball players Jake Bold and Nathan Latimer exchange congratulations following their Mustang game. Jake’s team Qualcomm may have defeated Nathan’s team RAK, but the highlight of the day was Nathan’s home run over the left field fence. It was the first of the season at LJYB. COURTESY

Though unofficial, La Jolla Youth Baseball (LJYB) has two halves to its season. Between Opening Day and spring break, most of the coaches focus on development and moving players around as much as possible. In the older leagues, having a stable of pitchers for post-season play is key for a double-elimination playoff format. It’s a long-standing rule in Mustang and Bronco leagues that each team must throw four pitchers in a complete game (most leagues require three.) After the week off for spring break, it will be fun to see where things stand and how different the second half plays out. In the Pony Division, two LJYB teams participate in the 10-team San Diego Pony inter-league with nine ‘away’ games. Last year, a LJYB team won the championship at the Memorial Day tourney. To date, seven games have been recorded and the Aladdin team is tied for second place with a 4-3 record while Las Patronas in a threeway tie for third place with a 2-4 record. Last week LP had an exciting game

against Tecolote-Yankees at home. LP pitchers Cade Kronemeyer, Blaise Gimber and Carson Green held the Yankees to one run in five innings. Closer Michael Campagna took a 4-1 lead into the seventh inning when a couple of bloop hits and a few bobbled balls quickly turned into 5-4 game with Las Patronas getting the last at-bat. With two outs, Bobby Murphy drew a walk from an 0-2 count followed by a sharp single by Gimber. Coach Solis called a double steal to advance the tying run to third and the winning run to second. On a 1-2 count, Murphy stole home on the pitch. In spite of a balk that went unnoticed, a high throw to the plate resulted in a collision and the runner was called out in a bang-bang play. Game over — Yankees win but in an exciting go-for-it finish. That’s Pony baseball. The Bronco Division also plays home and away games with Tecolote and Mission Bay. Pharmatek has posted a 4-3-1 record that appears to lead the LJYB teams. With a few games to be posted, Mitch’s Surf Shop, Morgan Stanley and

Falling into disrepair during escrow? Fix or Not? What happens if your furnace breaks down during your escrow period? Your doorbell stops working? The roof starts leaking with a recent rain? Do you have to fix it for the new buyer? Under the California Residential Purchase Agreement that you have probably signed, a seller is responsible for repairing any items that fall into disrepair during escrow. A seller may be reluctant to repair or replace items but paragraph nine of your purchase contract states that the property must be maintained by the seller in substantially the same condition as on the date the parties entered into their purchase agreement. The contract in paragraph 15 also requires repairs be performed in a good, skillful manner with materials of quality and appearance comparable to existing materials. This paragraph also requires the repairs to be completed before the buyer’s final walk through. Also some repairs may require a permit and licensed specialists. Given all these requirements, some sellers may wish to credit the buyer the cost for repairs through escrow. This can cause its own problems though, for if a lender is involved, he may want the repair done before the close of escrow. As you can see, repairs can be a problem and could even cause your escrow to fall apart. It is always best to repair or replace anything you feel is living on borrowed time. Remember Murphy’s Law. Things will probably happen (fail to work) at the most inconvenient time.

Performance Titanium teams have similar records and remain competitive among the 12 extramural teams. With 114 kids on 10 teams, the Mustang Division is bursting with activity. It has a competitive group of coaches and there have been a number of wild games already. Mustang President Cindi Stratton introduced a new concept this season that focused on pitcher development: Every team plays five games with the fourth inning dedicated to throwing a “rookie� pitcher who wanted to give it a try. Wonderful things came of it and the fiverun rule keeps the game moving along. With eight games posted, Garden Communities, Sector 9 and Qualcomm teams each have six wins. The rest of the league is separated by only a few games and the second half is wide open. Keep in mind that everyone makes the playoffs so the most they play for in the regular season is bracket seeding and bragging rights. The Pinto Division is as robust as Mustang with 116 kids on 10 teams. The pitching machine used in practice guarantees high scoring games and most teams have scored over 100 runs in the last eight games. In Pinto, defense is the secret sauce and the top teams always keep opponents to

Pony Day at Petco Park ■San Diego Padres is hosting its annual Pony Day at Petco Park as the Padres face the Detroit Tigers at 1:10 p.m., Sunday, April 13. A special pre-game parade on the Petco Park field is open to all La Jolla Youth Baseball players and coaches. Tickets: 300 seats are available at $16 per person at under 100 runs in the first half. The Natural High team is a good example with a 7-1 record, followed by Voices for Children and SD storage. Most of the teams are bunched in the middle and that’s how Pinto rolls. Every Shetland game ends in a tie. It’s uncanny. The Majors have been playing off the pitching machine all season and they are getting in a groove. The Minor teams have been working off of a tee and starting in April will introduce the pitching machine for as many players who are interested. Some kids prefer the tee all season. Homer’s Alley: Pharmatek’s Luke Brunette and Marcus Scott hit the only two home runs in Bronco this season. Nathan Latimer hit the solo shot in Mustang so far. ◆

For una bella casa, visit Bellini’s Antique Italia

Bellini’s Antique Italia in Solana Beach offers a blend of 18th century Italian antiques to midcentury modern and contemporary decor, including mirrors, candelabras, chandeliers, statues, Italian frescoes and Tuscan pottery.

BY MARTI GACIOCH Shoppers seeking antique Italian home furnishings need not journey to Europe to find high-quality pieces. Bellini’s Antique Italia in the Solana Beach Design District showcases elegant antique furniture and decorative accessories for all rooms of the home, including living room, dining room, kitchen and bedroom. Owner Jacopo Bellini shops the Tuscany, Umbria, Lombardy, Venice, Piedmont and Liguria regions of Italy for the merchandise he imports. His selections run the range of 17th- to 19thcentury pieces through contemporary 20th- to mid-century modern lines. Bellini’s also showcases many beautiful Italian decorative items handmade by skilled craftsmen. Selections include chandeliers, paintings, mirrors, pillows (constructed from old tapestry fragments), and frescoes by Italian artists. Customers can either select a

fresco from the artist catalog or order a custom design. Bellini’s also features colorful Deruta pieces from Umbria. Deruta is famous for its colorful majolica-type pieces and hand-painted garden tabletops constructed from volcanic stone. The store stocks and imports Tuscan terracotta pottery from Impruneta, a hill behind Florence, which is world famous for producing clay containing iron that is fired in a wood oven. Used long ago by the Etruscans, Impruneta pottery provides great strength and longevity. “I go to Italy two to three times a year, and for the most part, I buy from private homes to keep the costs down,” Bellini said. “I buy some things that I like and some things I know my clients will like.” Bellini’s customers frequently make shopping requests before he leaves for Italy, where he hunts for furnishings and decorative pieces for two to three weeks. “I keep my customers’ wish-lists and

can pretty much find anything a customer wants, but many times I have to research it to find it,” Bellini said, adding he plans to visit Italy again before the summer. A fifth-generation antique dealer, Bellini said he learned the business while working with his father in Milan and Florence, Italy, as a boy. He came to the United States in 2000 and opened his Cedros shop 12 years ago. “I chose the Cedros location for its walkability two years ago,” Bellini said.

California Association of Community Managers recognizes San Diego champs FROM CACM REPORTS

California Association of Community Managers (CACM), the state’s leading community association management education organization, has launched a program aimed at raising awareness about the importance of state-specific certification of community association managers in San Diego County and throughout California. The new campaign, My Community Champion, utilizes the experiences of real homeowners association (HOA) managers sharing messages about the level of training and expertise needed to successfully manage multi-million dollar residential community developments. The television, radio, web and print campaign includes three Community Managers from San Diego County. “More than 2 million San Diego County homeowners, about 68 percent of the county’s population, live in a community governed by a homeowners association managed by a professionally trained community association manager,” said Karen Conlon, president and CEO of CACM. “We felt it was important that residents learned more about the important role community association managers play in effectively managing residential communities. We also want to demonstrate the value these community champions add to maintaining standards of living for homeowners throughout California.” The new awareness campaign includes a consumer

of several community association managers. Consumers can visit to find out more about Champions in their area, or recognize their own community manager as a champion by contributing comments to “Tell Us About your Champion” in the Stay Informed section of the site. Community association managers are responsible for managing a majority of the nearly 50,000 common interest developments or HOAs in California. It is estimated more than 14.3 million people live in HOAs statewide. “California law currently features more than 1,200 statutes and laws that drive the practices of community association managers and HOAs,” Conlon said. “It’s in everyone’s best interest for community association managers to be well educated and certified by the California Association of Community Managers whose training focuses strictly on the laws impacting HOAs in our state. It’s our belief that community association managers are unsung neighborhood heroes responsible for contributing to the sustainability of property values and keeping hundreds of thousands of residential communities running smoothly.” More information at ◆

he Issue: The minimum wage in California is now $8 an hour. The state plans to increase it to $9 an hour in July and $10 an hour in January 2016. If no other state increases their minimum wage before then (Washington State currently tops the list at $9.19 an hour), California’s minimum wage will be the nation’s highest.

for him is based on principled considerations. Notwithstanding the fact that the district attorney’s term is not legislatively restricted to two or three terms, the concept of term limits is important. This was recognized long before California’s recently enacted term limits for state elective office; Thomas Jefferson, drafting the constitution for the State of Virginia (later to be considered as a model for the new federal government), urged a limitation of tenure, “to prevent every danger which might arise to American freedom by continuing too long in

office.” Jefferson’s concern is highlighted in Brewer’s campaign, as outlined in your article. Remaining in office for too long seems to have influenced the incumbent to publish statistics in an inaccurate fashion. Dumanis’ alleged 94-percent conviction rate has already been reported as misleading. The latest court figures (from Fiscal Year 2011/2012) show the district attorney filed 16,406 felonies. These cases resulted in 15,567 convictions. Significantly, however, a “conviction” or “disposition” means the case was resolved

Do you support a greater, more expeditious minimum wage increase for San Diego? We asked this question along Pearl Street in La Jolla Village on April 7 Still, San Diego’s nonprofit Center on Policy Initiatives estimates that a single person living on a stripped-down budget needs to make $13.09 an hour to live in San Diego. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, $10 per hour in 2016 will be equivalent to roughly $9.36 in today’s dollars. The San Diego City Council’s economic

development committee and city attorney’s office are drafting a measure for the November ballot that would provide a “meaningful” (though as yet unspecified) increase to the minimum wage in San Diego faster than the planned state hikes (and also provide five days of earned sick leave for all low-income employees). ◆ — Pat Sherman / City News Service

“I think it’s a very good idea. Families that come out here from someplace back east for a better way of life — whatever that is — find that paying rent, groceries, school tuition, car payments is out of their reach, because they’re struggling so hard. I really think that these people that don’t have a chance to maneuver around to a better job because they’re lacking opportunities should get a raise. To me it’s not just giving them more money, it’s respecting the help you’ve got working for you.” Elizabeth Kolton LA JOLLA

“Yes. People need the increase now, rather than in the future. It just makes more sense to do it in one push, rather than two.” David Pina NORTH PARK

“No. A dollar this year and a dollar (in 2016) — that’s a lot. Your 99-cent McDonald’s isn’t going to be 99 cents anymore. It’s a chain reaction. It’s just going to make inflation go faster. If (employers) have to pay people more they’re probably going to have to let people go.” Golden DePesa CLAIREMONT

“Yes, because it’s super expensive to live here, and I don’t think $10 an hour is enough.” Holly Bergay LA JOLLA

“I do not support the fact that San Diego would override the State of California. I did not know that cities could do that. I support the fact that the State of California can override the federal government (on minimum wage), because in California it’s way more expensive to live. The problem is that you cannot raise it too quickly, because then that would cause tremendous inflation and then what’s that going to do to the price of everything? It’s going to double and become expensive for everybody.” Paul Segal DEL MAR


OUR READERS WRITE (CONTINUED) at the trial court through trial or plea as either a felony or misdemeanor and 4,526, of the filings (over 25 percent), resulted in convictions of misdemeanors. Because there were only 11,041 felony convictions the incumbent’s conviction rate is more accurately 67 percent. Obviously, there may be valid reasons for a district attorney to elect to accept a plea to a misdemeanor rather than a felony, but there is no reason for an incumbent district attorney to distort the conviction record of her office to influence the electorate.

Future looks bright for San Diego tourism This year marks the 60th anniversary of the San Diego Tourism Authority, and we San Diegans have much to celebrate. After a challenging 2013, the Tourism Authority is back running at full throttle, aggressively selling San Diego across the country and the world, and booking meetings, conventions and hotel room nights. We recently embarked on the city’s largest seasonal marketing campaign, a $12 million blitz featuring national television and digital campaigns, print advertising in cities across the western United States, as well as online promotions on a variety of travel websites. This investment in our tourism economy has proven to be money well spent. We know that for each dollar used to promote San Diego to potential visitors, the return on investment for San Diego is a robust $24. As we all found out last year, advertising is vitally important. Because we were out of the market in 2013 due to a lack of funds, San

Diego fell behind its main competitors (Anaheim, Los Angeles and San Francisco) who were able to capture a greater share of the travel market. The bottom line: San Diego must constantly sell itself to keep our tourism economy strong. And strong it is. Second only to our military and innovation sectors, tourism in San Diego employs more than 165,000 people, pumps $18.7 billion a year into our regional economy, and generates $157 million a year — every dime of which goes to fund services across the city, such as street resurfacing, police, fire, parks and libraries. To grow our tourism economy, the Tourism Authority is launching several initiatives: 1) To take advantage of the growing international travel market, we’ll soon begin extensive marketing efforts in China, the most populous nation on Earth. 2) We’re also strengthening our online presence with the launch of the “Guides to the Good Stuff” digital campaign. The ads will feature local celebrities, and will be distributed on YouTube and to our more than 50,000 Twitter followers and more than 320,000 fans on Facebook. 3) We’re also working with National Geographic television on the development of a one-hour documentary showcasing San Diego, which will air in more than 10 countries and reach a global audience of 140 million.

Longtime lifeguard Ed Harris appointed to Council


an Diego City Council members chose Ed Harris, a longtime local lifeguard and former Marine, to serve the final eight months of Mayor Kevin Faulconer’s council term in District 2. Harris is familiar to La Jollans for opposing a year-round guideline rope at Children’s Pool/Casa Beach in lieu of a movable barrier solution he once proposed to keep humans and seals a safe distance apart. More recently, he drew attention to flaws in the design of the new La Jolla Shores lifeguard tower that prevent lifeguards from clearly surveying the beach at certain

times of the day. Harris is a longtime leader of the city’s lifeguard union and a Democrat. His nomination gives Democrats a 6-3 majority on the council, allowing them to override vetoes by Faulconer. “I’m excited and I’m anxious to get to work,” Harris said. “I will push for things that are important to people like crosswalks and clean beaches.” Harris, 49, was appointed to represent District 2, which includes Pacific Beach, Mission Beach, Ocean Beach, Point Loma, Bay Ho, Bay Park, Morena, Midway and North Bay. The seat opened up when Faulconer was elected mayor in February.

The city charter prohibits Harris from running for election to the seat, so he must step down when his term ends in early December. An election to fill the seat will be in June, with a possible runoff in November. The other 16 candidates for the seat also included Save Our Heritage Organisation Executive Director Bruce Coons and animal rights attorney Bryan Pease, who has worked to protect harbor seals at Children’s Pool and, more recently, to control the sea lion population at La Jolla Cove (to reduce odor from the their excrement). ◆ — Pat Sherman / U-T San Diego

SPORTS BASEBALL: Santa Fe Christian Upper School Eagles 8, The Bishop’s School Knights 0

Bishop’s players enjoy tourney, create memories at Petco Park BY ED PIPER The Bishop’s School Knights’ Tripp Twyman said it all when he commented on the location of the meet against Santa Fe Christian School, April 4: “Is it fun to play at Petco Park? Oh, yeah.” The Bishop’s senior also took home a treasured memory of the major league ballpark and home of the San Diego Padres — his own fabulous throw from centerfield to nail a Santa Fe Christian runner at the plate on a bang-bang play in the fifth inning. The Knights were prepared to enjoy the moment, yet focused on their Coastal South League opener. But it just wasn’t the Knights’ afternoon, as Eagles right-hander Chase Bushor fashioned a no-hit game against the best they could send up to the plate. Bishop’s Coach Joey Centanni told his troops before they batted in the top of the third inning, “(Bushor’s) got rhythm, so call a timeout, go up there with a shoe untied (to slow him down).” But the 6-foot Bushor rightly mixed fastballs and curveballs to retire the Knights in the second, third, fourth and fifth innings after giving up a walk to Jamie Abrams in the first inning to carry a near-perfect game into the bottom of the sixth inning. The only other Bishop’s runners that made it to base were James Nelson, who walked on a full count to lead off the sixth, and Bulla Graft soon after. Graft got on base because Bushor, gloving his ground ball back to the box, tried to catch the runner at second. The throw was late, so Graft’s tapper was a fielder’s choice. There wasn’t really a close call in the Knights’ attempts to get a hit off Bushor, who struck out 13 batters. For the season, Bushor has 36 strikeouts in 21 innings of play. Sophomore pitcher Robby Schreiber started for Bishop’s (0-1 in league, 7-4 overall), lasting four innings and giving up three runs on eight hits. He was effective in the second, when he retired three of four batters, and the fourth, when Santa Fe Christian had two runners on base with no outs and the 3-4-5 hitters coming up. The right-hander struck out Bushor, forced Cole Weaver to foul out to Ryan Feng in left field, and then made Dillon Paulson

fly out to Feng. Schreiber threw 80 pitches, using a lot of curveballs. Graft, normally an infielder, pitched two-and-two-thirds innings of relief, giving up six hits and four runs. Sophomore Fletcher Lanuti, after making a couple of outs playing second base, came in the seventh with two runners on, and got Bushor to pop out to first baseman Cyrus Nolan to end the inning for an experience to remember. Bishop’s Head of School Aimeclaire Roche said she fully enjoyed her role in throwing out the first pitch from the Petco mound. In her fifth year as principal, she spent the entire game in the dugout with the team. Asked if she is a power pitcher or a control pitcher, Roche replied with a laugh, “Control.” Athletic director Joel Allen coached her as she warmed up on the manicured outfield grass before her one opportunity. Roche put the Petco experience in perspective for the Bishop’s student-athletes, reminding them of whom they were playing for, “It’s historic, participating in a year in which we’ve celebrated Jerry Coleman (San Diego Padres announcer who passed away

Jan. 5). He spoke to the student body last year. These players knew him.” Coleman’s daughter is a Bishop’s alumna and his widow served as chairman of the board. Leading up to the game, Centanni

commented on the Knights’ solid play through the 10 pre-league games: “We are in every game and our guys battle. We have great team chemistry and that makes it much more enjoyable when we take the field.” ◆

LaSpada, a newcomer to head coach Kevin Reaume’s squad, also ran the 1600-meter in 5:16.78, for 20th place. Muhammad recorded 15 feet, 5 inches in the long jump. Reaume highlighted additional athletes on his squad: senior Arela Williams in the high jump and sophomore Veronica Chandler in the 300-meter hurdles. “Every student-athlete is going to contribute to the success of this family,” he remarked. Reaume’s boys and girls track teams have won or shared 14 championships in the Coastal League since 2000. He is a native of Ontario, Canada, and was drafted by the Toronto Argonauts of the professional Canadian Football League (CFL) back in his playing days as a defensive end. La Jolla Country Day’s boys 4x100-meter relay team — Darien Brown, Brennan Goring, Nick Smith and Keith Aylwin — ran a time of 44.71 seconds, placing second in the heat, though they have had relatively little practice this early in the season. Said Goring, a freshman, after the relay: “I run the curve (third leg), that’s just the way the team worked out. We have strong people in the straight (legs) with a good starter and a good finisher, so coming in as a freshman I was placed where there was an opening, and we’ve been doing good that way.” Regarding the individual nature of track events, though carried out as a team, Goring said, “I like that there is the individual aspect — you can shine, you can have your own spotlight. But then again, I like the team aspect. It’s good to have somebody to count on. Here we have a good team, and I can go into a race

knowing he’s going to give his best and I’m going to try my best.” Said Brown, “We have good chemistry, so our handoffs are pretty good. I mean, second place isn’t bad, but we wanted first the whole time.” The Torrey relay team pulled it off despite being out of school for spring break and not practicing the entire week. Their secret? “We give constructive criticism whenever we need it. So if I’m a couple of steps away, and we need to be closer on the handoff zone, then they’ll tell me that. If I’m going too fast on the handoff zone, then they’ll tell me that,” Brown said. Aylwin, a senior and lead anchor, commented, “As a team, we worked out really well together today. We’re feeling a lot better about this year because, hopefully, we’ll have a full team the whole year. Last year, we lost a member of the relay team with a hamstring (injury).” Fellow senior Smith, who runs the second leg, offered his expectation for the relay team this season, “It’s looking good. We’ve improved a lot since last year and I expect to go pretty far this year.” On the academic side, he said, “My best subject is probably math. I’m deciding between San Diego State and Indiana University next year. I’ll probably study business.” The sprinters’ coach at LJCD is Richard Browne, a Paralympian athlete who broke the Paralympic world record in the 100-meter race with a 10.75-second time. He finished second in the 2012 Paralympics. Runner Brown commented on what Coach Browne tries to drum into his runners, saying, “Perfection. He wants us to nail everything down in practice, so that by the time we get to the meet, it feels effortless when we’re running.” ◆

What brought you to La Jolla? I came for a job with Aldila, Inc. in 1989. They manufacture graphite golf club shafts. What might you add, subtract or improve in the area? I’d like to see a vibrant Village core, which includes well-planned public spaces and more public art, a pedestrian mall along parts of Girard Avenue and Prospect Street, and more well designed condos and apartments, so people can live and work in the Village.

New depARTures at San Diego Airport’s Terminal 2 BY LONNIE BURSTEIN HEWITT ight years ago, the Airport Authority Board adopted an Airport Art Master Plan that included a new collection of site-specific artwork at San Diego International Airport. That vision of an artful gateway to the region guided their major expansion project. Completed last August, “Green Build” Terminal 2, won a 2013 Orchid from the San Diego Architectural Foundation for Interior Architecture and Public Art. The jury appreciated the airport’s extensive use of glass, maximizing natural


light and providing stunning views, and was impressed by the breadth and brilliance of the art installations, hailing the project as “the beginning of a new era of fresh thinking about public art.” Flushed with success, the Airport Authority scheduled an Aesthetics and Authenticity Symposium, inviting speakers from around the country to discuss the role that art, design and culture could play in promoting a region’s prosperity and quality of life. The date was set for a mid-October weekend;

The son also rises


to mom. Now, I realize that if you’re looking for gratitude, parenthood is the wrong business for you. Still, when my younger son was a high school senior, he was awarded a prestigious national honor for which the local media came to interview him. The kids had always referred to their dad’s house (my ex) as “the fun house” (it was) and my house as “the boring house” (it was). I had done every library run (pre-Internet) even when it meant schlepping the kids to the downtown San Diego Library in rush hour traffic after work, driven every carpool (even on my ex-husband’s custody days), used up a year’s vacation time one year taking one of them to physical therapy after a serious sports injury, managed countless youth sports teams, ran Cub Scout dens, consulted on term papers – all while working. So the interviewer asks Henri, is there anyone he wants to thank? Yes, he says, his dad

get that sons need to separate from their mothers. But do they have to be so mean about it? I’m a nice person. So I wasn’t prepared for the fact that as my sons approached their senior years of high school they would suddenly turn on me. My younger son, especially, became positively surly. My mere presence annoyed him. I think Henri saw me as the embodiment of all that stood between him and a future of happy mother-free manhood. His spirit had already left home but his body had been forced to stay behind. I don’t know who suffered more. My husband, Olof, said that this was all part of the natural order of things. It’s far less traumatic to let your kids go off to college if you hate them. But as they made their bumpy way to self-supporting non-mother-needing maturity, they were regularly sticking it

Rory concluded that there were extenuating circumstances as to why I was the worst mother in the history of the world. When Henri graduated from college and got his first job, he invited Olof and me to dinner. Historically, that would have been a cheap ploy for a free meal. But the bill comes, kid goes to get it. I knew money was really tight for him with all the housing start-up costs so I immediately grabbed it and handed it to Olof. Olof, to my surprise, whispered, “Let him pay.” I did. When we got home, Olof said, “You almost deprived your son of one of the greatest moments a guy can have – finally being able to take his parents to dinner. He’s telling you he’s an adult who can take care of himself – and in this case, us. Sometimes moms just miss this stuff completely.” How did Olof know? Y chromosome communication? (Is there, in fact, any?) So for all you moms out there with surly high school seniors, remember this: you’ll like them again some day. They’ll like you, too. Sometimes you just have to live long enough. ◆


Let Inga Tell You

for teaching him how to have fun. Anyone else? They’re practically begging him. No, no one that he can think of. (OK, you miserable runt, kill your mother.) But another newspaper sees this story and he gets interviewed again. Anyone he wants to thank? Two people, he says. “My dad, for teaching me how to have fun.” I modestly lower my eyes. “And Mr. Litchfield, my English teacher.” For days afterwards, I had to fight impulses to poison his lunches. I was crushed. And more than a little annoyed. I didn’t say anything for a week as I contemplated the situation. Demanding that someone express thanks is no thanks at all. But finally one night at dinner, I thought I’d bring it up casually. “WOULD IT HAVE KILLED YOU TO THANK ME???” I said. Apparently yes. But more recently, giving a genuinely touching toast to Olof and me on a milestone occasion, Henri’s voice actually cracked with emotion as he thanked us for all we had done for him. But not happening at 17. Meanwhile, my older son, Rory, wrote his college abnormal psychology term paper about me, 17 pages worth of momanalysis. That one actually had a surprisingly positive outcome when, after interviewing me at length for the paper,

Give me liberty or give me lunch at colonial Green Dragon Tavern BY KELLEY CARLSON restaurant with a rather revolutionary concept recently opened in Carlsbad. The Green Dragon Tavern & Museum pays homage to the nation’s colonial days, from the architecture and décor (which includes historical documents on display) to the East Coastinspired cuisine. “The original Green Dragon Tavern in Boston was a gathering space for historical figures, including John Hancock and Sam Adams, to begin laying the foundation of democracy for our country,” said John Lek, senior vice president and general manager, in a statement. “We wanted to bring this important facet of American history and influence that is so rooted in the northeastern part of the United States and share it with the West Coast.” The Green Dragon also serves as a gathering space with many people choosing to relax in the casual two-story tavern. During happy hour, patrons receive 25 percent off on starters that include the New England Clam Chowder — full of clams, carrots, celery, onions, fried fingerling potatoes, thyme and rosemary; along with Flash-Fried Calamari; Sweet Potato Waffle Fries; and Warm Pretzel Bites. There’s also $1 off on beers and wines by the glass. Twenty brews are on tap (predominantly craft-style) from breweries such as Stone,

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

■ This week’s recipe:

Green Dragon Tavern’s Maine Lobster Roll Saint Archer, Ballast Point, Green Flash and AleSmith, along with Sons of Liberty and Samuel Adams (naturally). Most of the wines are from California with a few from exotic locations such as Argentina and Australia. Whether guests are in the tavern or the elegant dining room, they can peruse a menu created by Chef de Cuisine Craig Hastings, who blends Old World techniques (open-flame cooking, braising, griddling) with a modern approach. He uses local, sustainable ingredients in his dishes and prefers to make items from scratch, including the sauces, condiments, burger buns and flatbreads. For lighter fare, Hastings presents a half-

dozen salads and soups, and “Heroes” of the Revolution sandwiches. One popular is “The Patriot” — a brioche bun stuffed with chunks of Maine lobster lightly covered in tarragon aioli, topped with beer-batter crunchies and served with a side of greens. The entrees encompass everything from steaks and Crispy-Skinned Jidori Chicken to Tavern-Made Vegetarian Pasta. A favorite is the Cedar Plank Roasted Skuna Bay Salmon dressed in horseradish bearnaise and leeks, which rests on a bed of charred asparagus spears. It’s accompanied by a side of clam-and-corn stuffing. Another choice dish is the Seared Super Lump Crab Cakes, composed of 80 percent crabmeat that is pan-seared and covered in panko bread crumbs. The cakes are enveloped by roasted corn and pepper succotash, romanesco cauliflower and chive oil. To wrap up the meal, there are desserts such as the Apple Handpie, a personalsized, deep-dish pastry with a crust that’s brushed with a sugary glaze and filled with fruit. It’s enhanced by a scoop of caramel gelato and a drizzle of lavender honey. In addition, there’s the Chef’s Cast Iron S’more, a concoction of brown butter graham cracker crumble, chocolate ganache and honey marshmallow. “We want people to come in, enjoy good food, celebrate early American history and have a good time,” Lek said. ◆

BY LONNIE BURSTEIN HEWITT Several years in the making, the new Education Pavilion at Lux Art Institute will celebrate its grand opening with a community open house on April 13. The 7,000-square-foot building, designed by architect and Lux board member Anne Sneed, is meant to be a true community center. Boasting a sleek, steelframed glass entrance and a set of finely crafted, reclaimed-wood “barn doors� in its interior, the pavilion features five large and colorful classroom/studio spaces, a wood shop and a digital lounge. Out back is a one-acre garden area with an amphitheater for concerts and special events. The new venue will allow Lux to expand its programs for children and begin offering others for teens and adults. Since its opening on an Encinitas hillside off El Camino Real in 2007, Lux has dedicated itself to making art more accessible and meaningful, with an annual artists-in-residence program that allows the public to personally engage with international artists and watch their creative process. “The reason our children’s programs have been so successful is that the kids are inspired by world-class artists,� said Reesey Shaw, the La Jolla resident who is Lux’s founding director. “For our grand opening, we’re showing works by some of our early artists-inresidence, but afterwards, the gallery space will be turned over to the kids.� Lux’s new educational director is Lisa Davis, who comes from the Smart Museum of Art at the University of Chicago. “I went from Smart to Lux,� she said, smiling. “I’ve become enlightened!� Davis is eager to see the new space filled with people, and ready to receive any suggestions for possible activities. “Yoga in the garden, film screenings, book clubs ...

Children’s School to host annual art show April 10


Seventh-graders apply techniques mastered by George Ohr (1857-1918), an American ceramic artist and the self-proclaimed ‘Mad Potter of Biloxi.’

rt lovers of all ages are invited to the 15th annual Grande Finale Art Exhibit, 5:30-8 p.m. Thursday, April 10, at The Children’s School, 2225 Torrey Pines Lane. At the event, which marks the culmination of the school’s sixweek-long Great Artists program, classrooms will be transformed into mini art museums showcasing the students’ artistic endeavors and the depth of learning provided by the program. A hallmark of The Children’s School, the Great Artists program encourages toddlers through eighth-graders to develop an appreciation of art as they explore the life, work and artistic style of chosen artists through an integrated curriculum of activities in language arts, math, social studies, science and art. “Children thrive in an environment where art is viewed as an adventure and an exploration of ideas and perspective,� said art teacher Carrie Difini. “Because we focus on the process of art rather than the product, our students have only themselves to please as they paint, glue, scribble, splatter and sculpt. And by studying the works of great artists, students gain a deeper appreciation for art and its styles and techniques.� A highlight of the program for first-graders studying the glass artist Dale Chihuly, was a visit to The Glashaus studio of Kathleen Mitchell where glass blower Matt Evans led a demonstration. ◆

Then came last fall’s government shutdown; the Fisheries Center, a federal building, was closed, and the symposium cancelled. But this month, Aesthetics and Authenticity came together for about 80 registrants, no longer in La Jolla, but at the New Central Library downtown. It kicked off the evening of March 7, with a magical mystery tour of

the new airport art. Welcoming the tour-goers was the symposium’s organizer, Airport Art Program Manager Constance White. An artist and jewelry designer herself, she has been the power behind the airport’s expanding art since 2006. She led one of the two tour groups, which included brief talks by the main artists, and a close look at the eight great new pieces. At the post-tour reception, she was exultant. “We really planned in a strategic way to implement this program, and to see it come together after eight years is enormously gratifying,” White said. “It wasn’t all peaches and strawberries, but there was so much integrity

Past returns to pair in premiere of ‘Mandate Memories’ at North Coast Rep BY DIANA SAENGER History and human drama are the focus of playwright Lionel Goldstein’s “Mandate Memories,� making its world premiere at the North Coast Repertory Theatre (NCRT) in Solana Beach. David Ellenstein, Artistic Director of NCRT, directed what’s called a two-hander — just two actors play the show. Apollo Dukakis takes on the role of Gustav Frolich, an 80-year-old Jewish Holocaust survivor, who in his youth was a Jewish Freedom Fighter. He has come to England from Israel to call on Jane Stirling, played by Rosina Reynolds. Gustav informs Jane he has something to share with her. She is not too receptive to him since the father she never knew was killed by Jewish terrorists during the days of the British Mandate for Palestine. Dukakis and his sister, actor Olympia Dukakis, share a long history in theater. She started a little before Apollo. They lived in Massachusetts, and when she went to New York, he followed a few years later. “This was before regional theaters had come about; there was just Broadway,� Dukakis said. “Eventually, in the 1960s, that changed and we started a theater in

earned L.A. Drama Critics and Ovation award nominations. Although Dukakis was certainly interested when he received a call from Ellenstein about the role of Gustav, he was also not sure what to expect. “As I started to read the script, I immediately became interested in the events of the play, its history and background,� he said. “Learning about the characters and what they had gone through, and what they wanted from each other, was very moving. I knew I wanted

to do it even though it has more dialogue than any play I’d ever done.� Dukakis said he was very impressed with his costar, Reynolds, who has performed in or directed more than 30 productions in San Diego. She is also founding artistic Director of the Chequamegon Children’s Theatre in northern Wisconsin. “Jane is a polite and genteel English lady who gardens, and when this elderly Jewish man comes to stay for a while in a very gregarious house, it’s a clash of two temperaments and cultures,� Dukakis said. “I just love Rosina, who is outspoken and feisty and she portrays Jane exceptionally well, especially when Jane is backed against the wall.� The conflicts are provocative, but there is also some humor. In addition to an entertaining evening, Dukakis believes those leaving the theater will reflect on, “The human drama between two people who are total opposites but who find a common understanding and acceptance.� ■IF YOU GO: “Mandate Memories� is on stage at North Coast Repertory Theatre, 987 Lomas Santa Fe Drive, Solana Beach, April 9-May 4.

Obama Shines Light on Psychological Issues in America, Illuminating the Importance of Professional Treatment In an effort to bring mental health issues “out of the shadows,” President Barack Obama called on Americans to rally in support of those suffering with psychological disorders at this year’s National Conference on Mental Health held June 3 at the White House. “Struggling with a mental illness or caring for someone who does can be isolating,” Obama said. “It begins to feel as if, not only are you alone, but that you shouldn’t

burden others with the challenge.” The sentiments are indeed true for those who must cope with mental illness. The truth is that each of us probably knows someone who is dealing or has dealt with a psychological disorder. Now more than ever, Americans are urged largely in part by the White House Administration to give attention and encouragement to individuals with mental disorders who need professional help. The conference follows closely on the heels of last year’s shooting massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary in Connecticut, a tragedy that claimed many innocent lives in the face of untreated mental illness. Obama emphasized, however, that most people with mental health issues are generally not violent. “We can do something about stories like this,” he said. “In many cases, treatment is available and effective.”

But according to an article at the Huffington Post, more must be done to illuminate the need for mental health treatment in America. Carolyn Reinach Wolf, mental health advocate and founder of Campus Behavioral Health Risk Consultants, brings to light important questions: What about funding that is earmarked for mental health services? What about privacy issues that impact both families and the medical community? And what about asking insurance companies to better fund mental health consumers? While the Obama administration is to be applauded for highlighting the importance of mental health in America, more must be done. The bottom line is that mental health merits more than discussion – it requires action. Like other diseases, mental disorders are treatable and while more

discussion can help to alleviate social stigmas, it isn’t enough. Treatment is essential. Research now supports the fact that many mental health treatments have proven to be not only as or more effective than those used to treat common physical disorders, but are even more cost-effective (Source: Economic and Social Research Council). In Great Britain, for example, mental illness makes up half of all illnesses for people under the age of 65. As a part of my practice, I assess and treat individuals to achieve more optimal functioning in their personal lives or in their workplace settings. Treatment is an important part of feeling whole again. For more information about my work as a practicing psychologist or to inquire about psychological evaluation, you can reach me at or at my website,

Luxury real estate market rocks for Susana Corrigan and Patty Cohen The high-end residential real estate market is doing fabulously, according to Susana Corrigan of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties’ La Jolla office. She should know. Corrigan and her sister and partner, Patty Cohen, had three of the Top 10 sales in San Diego County in 2013, including a new, contemporary home on the oceanfront that closed at $16.25 million. “There is high demand for excellent properties in the $5 million-plus price point and a shortage of inventory,” noted Corrigan. The duo just closed a transaction for $6.5 million prior to it coming on the market. “There have been at least two other recent Susana Corrigan sales in La Jolla above $10 million that sold and Patty Cohen prior to listing,” she said. “Susana and Patty have a very strong track record and strong local, national and international reputation representing buyers and sellers of luxury properties,” said Nicki Marcellino, San Diego vice president and manager of the La Jolla office. Corrigan and Cohen’s career sales exceed $1.5 billion. They ranked No. 15 for their sales in 2013, out of 26,000 agents for the brokerage nationwide. They can be reached at (858) 229-8120 and ◆


Greg Noonan of Berkshire Hathaway is top listing agent Greg Noonan of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties was once again the No. 1 listing agent in San Diego County for homes valued over $1 million, according to data compiled by Real Data Results, for the period between Jan. 1, 2013 and Dec. 31, 2013. The achievement ranked Greg Noonan and Associates No. 10 nationwide for sales production, out of the brokerage’s vast network of sales professionals in North America. “Greg’s exceptional sales earned him the Pinnacle award for an unprecedented seventh Greg Noonan time,” said Nicki Marcellino, manager of the La Jolla office and vice president of the San Diego County region. “We’re very proud to have him in our office. His incredible track record proves that hard work and integrity bring success in real estate.” Noonan said he enjoys representing buyers and sellers in La Jolla, whether purchasing their first home, selling a seaside property or investing in coastal estates.

What’s important to me is providing my clients with a positive experience in their transactions.” Noonan is a sponsor of the Celebration of Champions fundraiser for the Peckham Children’s Cancer Care Center at Rady Children’s Hospital.
