ff to a running start — More than 8,000 athletes participated in the 32nd La Jolla Half Marathon and La Jolla Shores 5K beginning at 7:30 a.m. on April 28, with proceeds going to fund youth, senior and community programs of the La Jolla Kiwanis Foundation. The half marathon course started at the Del Mar Fairgrounds and traveled south along the coastline to finish in La Jolla at Scripps Park. The 5K began on La Jolla Shores Drive near Scripps Pier and also ended at the park. n See race results and photos, B16

City seeks to close Children’s Pool during seal pup season n La Jolla Parks and Beaches group meets to debate closure

Coastal Program, the Community Plan, and the Coastal Development Permit and Municipal Code, that would close Children’s Pool beach entirely during pupping season, December to May, each year. The Draft Negative Declaration of an Environmental Impact Report would reclassify Children’s Pool beach from a public beach to an

“environmentally sensitive habitat area.” The declaration states that implementation of the habitat plan at Children’s Pool requires installing two signs on an existing wall and gate, as well as a chain barrier at the second landing of the lower stairs. The amendment to the San Diego Municipal Code would read: “It is unlawful for any person to be upon,

or cause any person to be upon, the beach of La Jolla Children’s Pool, starting from the lower stairs to the beach, beginning with the second landing, from Dec. 15 to May 15.” The initial study, conducted by the city, found the project would not have a significant effect on the

‘Seal Cam’ operators honor mayor n Filner vows to ‘go further to protect’ harbor seals at Children’s Pool

Camps Guide lists variety of programs for youth, B18

By Ashley Mackin Hundreds gathered at the Mangelsen Gallery in La Jolla on April 25 to help the Western Alliance for Nature (WAN) Conservancy — the organization that paid for the webcam installed at Children’s Pool beach — raise funds for the camera operation and salute Mayor Bob Filner for his efforts to protect the harbor seals. Sara Wan of the WAN Conservancy opened the benefit by thanking people

involved in maintaining the camera, and then introduced former County Supervisor Pam Slater-Price, who presented an award to the mayor. In Filner’s acceptance speech, he explained his process for getting Children’s Pool to the “protected” level it is today. He also addressed seal harassment since the city closed the beach at night. Filner’s efforts thus far include having a police officer and a ranger stationed at Children’s Pool, extending the rope barrier designed to keep people away from the seals

Families get a charge out of electricity lessons at Science Night


tudents and parents at La Jolla Elementary School were “shocked” to find out how much fun electricity and magnetism can be at the school’s annual Family Science Night, a PTO-sponsored event of hands-on experiments and activities. Coordinated by Leigh Plesniak, a LJES parent and owner of San Diego Family Science, the event drew more than 150 attendees. Participants used the Earth’s magnetic field to navigate from activity to activity, which included making a human electric circuit, watching a chaotic pendulum, building a simple motor, and creating static electricity. Scientists from the J. Craig Venter Institute were also on hand to assist students with using electrophoresis to separate dyes. — Julie MacDonald, PTO president, La Jolla Elementary School

First-grader Sophia Ford and third-grade teacher Joan Boyle demonstrate static electricity.

Fifth-graders Margo Lyons, Kennedy Snyder, Olivia Myers and friends make a human electric circuit with the help of parent volunteer Eric Korevaar.

Parking board seeks to free up funds for Village transportation By Pat Sherman A group that oversees a pool of money allocated to alleviate parking congestion in the La Jolla Village is working with the city to establish more reasonable guidelines for how the funds may be used. La Jolla’s Coastal Access and Parking Board (CAPB) was formed in 1993, largely to create a parking area outside La Jolla and a shuttle system to bring visitors into the Village, plus other short-term or long-term parking and traffic related solutions subject to approval by the San Diego City Council and the California Coastal Commission. These projects were supposed to be funded by fees overseen by the CAPB that are assessed on developers whose projects impact parking in La Jolla. Addressing the La Jolla Town Council last month, La Jolla Community Planning Association Vice-Chair Joe LaCava characterized the CAPB as “one of those strange, leftover animals” created during the 1980s and ’90s when the Coastal Commission was concerned that development in La Jolla would draw more tourists to the Village and limit parking availability. “They started collecting fees from all these projects and they put them into a special fund — and they didn’t know what they were going to do with it; they didn’t have a plan,” LaCava said. When the Coastal Commission had amassed around $300,000 the City of San Diego decided it wanted to use the money, and a memorandum of understanding (MOU) was drawn up between the city and the Coastal Commission to create the off-site parking and a shuttle program. Two decades later, neither have come to fruition. To date, the CAPB’s main function has been the purchase of bus passes and garage parking, which it makes available to Village employees at a reduced rate to free up street parking spaces. Through there is now roughly $400,000 in

May 1 to May 11

On the Web ■ the CAPB account, it is not enough to pay for the city’s original shuttle and off-site parking plans. “It’s our money, the city’s got it in a special account, and we can’t figure out what to do with it,” LaCava said. “What we’re trying to do through the CAPB is to approach the city with a new business plan, and then approach the Coastal Commission to obtain an updated memorandum of understanding.” Town Council trustee Nancy Gardner, who serves as first vice-president of the CABP, said the parking board is both working to re-write the MOU and establish the CAPB as a nonprofit, so that that its money can be used more effectively. Gardner said some of the ideas the CAPB is considering include the use of golf carts to move people around the Village, and a proposal for a Village trolley system that was presented to the CAPB by two local entrepreneurs who would finance a portion of the project themselves. “We liked their idea very much, but our MOU at the moment does not allow us to support that,” Gardner said. People interested in learning more about the CAPB, its evolving MOU or mission are welcome to attend meetings, 5 p.m. the first Tuesday of the month at La Jolla Rec Center, 615 Prospect St. The Downtown San Diego Partnership, a nonprofit that also works on parking issues, will make a presentation during the May 7 meeting. “Everyone has the same concept — how to get people around town with minimal impact on parking and make all that as ecofriendly as possible,” Gardner said of the various groups in the region grappling with parking issues.

Wound-healing genes in flies could also aid humans

Research Report By LynnE Friedmann


iologists at UC San Diego have identified eight genes — never before suspected of having a role in healing — that spring into action when a wound occurs. The discovery was made in the laboratory fruit fly Drosophila, which serves as an experimental model because many of the genes that regulate a Drosophila’s exoskeleton (cuticle) are the same as those controlling biological processes in human skin. Puncturing the cuticle of fruit fly embryos, researchers examined 162 genes that either turn on or turn off in response to healing. Of these, eight genes were identified that expressed at very low levels or not at all during development, but became activated near an injury site. The response begins immediately,

releasing antimicrobial peptides and other compounds that protect the fly should bacteria or fungi enter the wound. The next step is to see if these genes in human play a comparable healing role. Details of the discovery found in the journal PLOS ONE. News release at

Transforming stem cells directly into brain cells In a serendipitous discovery, scientists at The Scripps Research Institute have found a way to turn bone marrow stem cells directly into brain cells. Current techniques for turning patients’ marrow cells into cells of some other desired type are relatively cumbersome, risky, and confined to the lab dish. Researchers discovered the new method while looking for lab-grown antibodies that activate a growthstimulating receptor on marrow cells. One antibody turned out to activate the receptor in a way that induces marrow stem cells (which normally develop into white blood cells) to become neural progenitor cells, a type of almost-

The ability of sea spray to seed clouds Tiny air bubbles form when ocean waves break, and rise to the surface and burst, releasing gases and aerosols whose chemical make-up affects their ability to take up water, seed clouds and react in the atmosphere. But that ability is altered by the presence of biological life found in water.

By engineering breaking waves of natural ocean water under purified air in the lab, atmospheric chemists at UC San Diego were able to isolate and analyze aerosols and determine how life within the water impacts the chemistry of the particles. Over five days, the team systematically altered biological communities within the flume by adding various combinations of cultures of marine bacteria and microscopic marine algae (phytoplankton). Then a hydraulic paddle sent waves breaking over an artificial shoal. As the seawater changed and bacteria levels increased, the composition of the aerosols changed in ways that reduced their ability to form clouds. In

particular, a day after new cultures were added, bacteria levels rose fivefold and cloud-seeding potential fell by about a third. This is an important finding because current estimates of biological activity in surface waters of the ocean rely on satellite instruments that measure the color of the sea surface, signaling a change of

Real Estate TODAY by Janet Douglas

When Sleeping Dogs Don't Lie! It is important to be absolutely candid with your agent and buyers about the condition of your property when you are selling. If there is anything wrong with the roof, the plumbing, the wiring or structure, it will probably not remain a "sleeping dog". It will probably wake up, snarl, growl and snap at your ankles at the precise moment your buyers feel their first stirring of buyer's remorse. Concealing a defect is a serious matter when you are selling a home. It is unlikely that such a defect will go undetected because most buyers get a professional physical inspection before they remove all their contingencies on the purchase of your house. Buyers will find it much easier to deal with defects when they have been made aware of them before the inspector points them out. Obviously to avoid these issues, it is a good idea to go through your home with a careful eye before you list it and fix any of the items that you can afford to repair or replace. Anything you cannot afford to fix, disclose the problem to your Realtor. Your Realtor will provide you with a seller's disclosure form to list these defects. This form, along with numerous other disclosure forms will be given to your buyer during their due diligence contingency period of the escrow. It is always the best policy to disclose everything you know about the property so that nothing can come back to haunt you after the close of escrow.

From Mayor, A1 to 152 feet, closing the beach from sunset to sunrise, and suggesting the City of San Diego take over operation of the camera. Sara Wan explained that the camera operators work in four-hour shifts to count seals and humans on the beach and record observations for the conservancy. From there, she explained what she calls “the myths of pro-beach access” (See box at right). Slater-Price credited Mayor Filner with assuming a leadership role in the seal issue. “He’s taken very proactive steps in a way many of us thought no one would do because it is controversial,” she said. “I don’t know why, but it is. In spite of all the critical issues facing the city, and heaven knows when he took over there were plenty of critical issues left unsolved, he’s been willing to devote time to this because he believes in representing the people of this area and he also recognizes how important this issue is, not only to the environment, but to the economy. The seals here are

Sara Wan debunks ‘three myths of those who oppose the seal cam and limited beach access’ n Myth 1: Ellen Browning Scripps donated the beach via a trust as a Children’s Pool. Sara Wan: “That’s nonsense. This is and always has been public tidelands. No person can donate it and leave in trust, public land.” n Myth 2: SeaWorld released the seals to Children’s Pool after SeaWorld rehabilitated them. Wan: “It wouldn’t matter if they did. The seals are here and we’re lucky. (However) I looked at the charts they’ve posted and all they provide is the release data, so I asked NOAA for the full data, including where the seals were picked up. Most of them were not released to this area, but there was already a colony here and they were rescuing them from here.”

a huge draw.” She then presented Mayor Filner with his award, a photo taken by the Seal cCeals from behind the rope, with a note of thanks. Addressing concerns about the camera and limited beach access, Filner said, “This should be a no-brainer, right?

I just don’t understand the controversy, frankly. All these people talk about tourism and all these people talk about our beauty and (being) America’s Finest City.” Of the beach closure, Filner said it stemmed from the video recorded of two women aggressively disturbing the

n Myth 3: People have a constitutional right to access the beach. Wan: “Public access is controlled under the California Coastal Act, which addresses the need to protect the fragile eco-system. It is consistent with the CCA to deal with limiting and restraining public access in order to protect those seals.” seals at Children’s Pool on Feb. 14, joking that people are “training their kids” to harass seals. After watching the nowfamous video, Filner said he asked the San Diego Police Department what they need to do to prevent similar harrassment. They reportedly replied, “If people were denied access to the beach it doesn’t matter what they were doing, we could cite them for being on the beach.”

As a result, the beach has been closed at night to May 15, and Filner said he doesn’t plan on stopping there. “We’re going to go further to protect them,” he said. To the Wans he stated, “We’re going to try to help you with the camera and maybe have the city take it over.” Speaking with La Jolla Light, Filner said continuing the level of seal protection is necessary because the current measures are not enough, and reports are still coming

in of people harassing seals. However, the mayor and the Wans define harassment as anything that alters the behavior of the seals, so new reports might not be as extreme as the February incident. “The rangers and the lifeguards still don’t think they have the authority (to enforce the new rules) so I have to make sure they understand they have the authority to cite people and to exercise that authority,” Filner said.

School debuts its Green Club at Earth Day event


ird Rock Elementary School students celebrated Earth Day on April 22 by wearing green and participating in a competition to see which grades could use the least amount of trash at lunch time. The kindergartners, first-graders and second-graders all tied to win a popcorn party. On a large Earth Day sign, the students wrote pledges for what they can do to reduce, reuse and recycle. The celebration was a kickoff for the school’s new student club, The Green Team, for interested persons in grades 2-5. The club will start meeting this fall to create a healthier school environment and reduce its carbon footprint. Members hope to serve as a model of sustainability for the school campus and the greater community. — Jennifer Gamez, BRE parent

Empress Hotel under new ownership, $2 million renovation planned By Pat Sherman The 73-room Empress Hotel at the corner of Fay Avenue and Silverado Street in La Jolla Village will undergo a $2 million renovation this year, said the hotel’s new general manager, John Haerr. Invest West Financial/Pacifica Hotel Company sold the hotel last month for an undisclosed amount to Greystone Hotels, which owns the Best Western Seven Seas in Hotel Circle and The Bristol Hotel downtown, as well as seven other properties in San Francisco, Los Angeles and Palo Alto. “We are excited to have had the opportunity to acquire an upscale, independent hotel in an iconic destination such John Haerr, the as La Jolla,� said Empress Hotel’s Greystone Hotels new general president and founder, manager Eric Horodas, in a statement. “In addition to its world-class location, the Empress Hotel fits perfectly in our portfolio. Our remodeling program, combined with our emphasis on top-notch guest service will restore the Empress Hotel as one of the leading hotels in La Jolla.� Haerr, who joined the Empress April 15, said his addition is the only personnel change. He previously worked as a controller at Greystone’s corporate offices in San Francisco.

The Empress Hotel, which opened in 1987 as a retirement home, will undergo a complete renovation this year. Courtesy Photos “We’re very excited,â€? Haerr said of the 12-month, top-to-bottom, hotel renovation. “We’ve got a really, really fantastic designer (San Diego’s Kathleen Kita-Palmer of K. Kita Design). ‌ We’re going to push this property up to a new level.â€? Haerr said Greystone will spend about

Never too Early! Last Minute?

No Problem!

Haerr said. Though the “ultramodern� remodel will retain a bit of the hotel’s European flavor, the hotel’s dark color scheme will be lightened considerably, Haerr said. Elevators and other equipment also will be upgraded. Room and public space renovations will begin in the fall off-season, during which time the hotel will remain open. The iconic Manhattan Italian restaurant, which is leased from the hotel, will remain as it is, featuring live entertainment on Friday and Saturday nights. Haerr’s position as general manager brings his more than three-decade career in the hotel industry full-circle. Raised in La Jolla, he landed his first hospitality job as a bellhop at the Empress while a student at La Jolla High School. His father, Ralph Haerr, lives in La Jolla and brothers, Paul and Roger Haerr, and sister, Greta Kennedy, reside in Bird Rock. His late mother, Molly Haerr, lived in La Jolla’s Muirlands neighborhood from 1950 on. The Empress was built in 1967 as a retirement home. According to Carol Olten, a historian with the La Jolla Historical Society, it became the Ellingsen Court Hotel in 1977. A series of ownership changes ensued, and its name was changed simply to the Ellingsen Hotel. It included Aimee’s Fine Dining and Mon Aimee’s Cocktail Lounge. In 1985, the hotel was sold to La Jolla Village Inns of America for $7 million. It was sold again in 1986, becoming the Empress Hotel.

The public comment period ends May 20, (see box above ) and those interested in offering their feedback can find the notice and report at notices with a search for Project No. 225045. The Children’s Pool beach is currently closed at night until May 15 (the official end of pupping season) and there is also a year-round rope to encourage humans to stay a safe distance from the seals on the beach.

The current night time seawall and beach closure could become a 24-hour closure during pupping season. Pat Sherman Though it is legal to cross that rope, beach-goers must adhere to the Marine Mammal Protection Act, which dictates that humans keep at least 50 yards from pregnant and nursing seals and pups. Comments both for and against the declaration and subsequent beach closure were made during the meeting with LJP&B Chair Dan Allen assuring that each person had his or her say. LJP&B member Jane Reldan, a strong advocate for closing the beach, read her prepared statement to the group. “The closure of Casa Beach meets all of the requirements of the Coastal Act

and has a positive impact on the environment and the protection of coastal resources,” Reldan said. One of many against the closure, Rebecca Morales said, “The pool was constructed for the use of children … there are very few places in the world where we find this kind of enclosure. We have an international gem here … there are places where we already have marine life sanctuaries.” Morales added that people have lost sight of the intended use of Children’s Pool, to which LJP&B member Phyllis Minnick replied, “We haven’t lost sight, it was taken away from us.”

n Post Office update: The La Jolla Historical Society (LJHS) asked the city’s Historical Resources Board (HRB) for a 60-day continuance before deciding whether to grant a historic designation to La Jolla’s Wall Street post office (which the U.S. Postal Service intends to sell in the

near future). During its April 25 meeting, the HRB instead granted a 30-day continuance. LJHS executive director Heath Fox told board members the continuance was needed for the LJHS’s Save Our La Jolla Post Office Task Force to clarify details of the designation, which he said relate to potential adverse effects resulting from the USPS’s recent notice of intent to sell the post office building and relocate its services. “A sale of our post office would require an environmental impact report, which would include the impact of a loss of historic use,” Fox said. USPS’s Diana Alvarado told the La Jolla Light this week that the post office building at 1140 Wall Street is not yet on the market, and that USPS has not


A ‘no trespassing’ sign was posted on this WindanSea cottage following the city’s decision to order an expedited coastal development permit to demolish the arguably historic structure.

Last month, the city’s Development Services Department issued an expedited coastal development permit to demolish the cottages at 337 and 341 Playa del Sur. The La Jolla Community Planning Association (LJCPA) will decide whether to appeal the permit during its monthly meeting today

Former Bird Rock resident’s film to screen at Cannes By Pat Sherman La Jolla native and recent University of Southern California graduate Chelsea Maidhof nabbed two awards for her entries in last year’s “48 Hour Film Project,� a contest in which filmmakers are assigned a genre, character, prop and line of dialogue, and have 48 hours to create a short film containing these elements. Maidhof teamed with fellow USC graduate John Redlinger to write, produce and act in the films, as well as a host of other longtime friends under the name “Bad and Classic Productions,� competing in contests in three cities. Their film, “The Crossing,� which won for best film, sound design and choreography in Los Angeles, will screen May 22-23 at Cannes International Film Festival in France as an official selection.

FROM NEWS BRIEFS, A14 create a marine mammal park at Children’s Pool. Passed into law in 2009, the legislation amended the terms of a public trust to give the city council the discretion to create a marine mammal park there “for the enjoyment and benefit of children.� Pressman held that “the Children’s Pool as a seal habitat is consistent with the public trust.� n Torrey Pines Road design update: According to the office of District 1 City Councilmember Sherri Lightner, the design of Phase 1 of the Torrey Pines Road Corridor project (which includes reconstructing sidewalk segments, curb ramps and driveways along the north side of Torrey Pines Road between La Jolla Shores Drive and Prospect Place, and the addition of new sidewalk and curb ramps along the south side of Torrey Pines Road) should be complete by November — though it could take longer if the city’s Development Services Department requires an environmental impact report or mitigated negative declaration. n Cluster Foundation releases final survey: The administrators, teachers, parents and staff of the La Jolla Schools Cluster have spent three years engaging stakeholders and collaborating through meetings and surveys to determine what the La Jolla educational community needs to make its foundation stronger.

United School District for review. View and complete the final survey at: LJSurvey4 n Cove shark sightings: Scuba divers spotted large sevengill sharks swimming off the coast of La Jolla last week. Divers are pushing for an explanation for this uncommon sight inside La Jolla Cove and have started a website at According to the experts at montereybayaquarium. org, the 5- to 8-foot, broadnose sevengill sharks are on the hunt for food and prefer prowling in shallow,

inshore waters, although they appear in deeper waters along the continental shelf. Sevengill sharks aren’t fussy eaters — they prey on almost anything, including octopuses, rays, other sharks, bony fishes and carrion. Observers have seen sevengill sharks in packs hunting for seals. n Sea lion rescues down: SeaWorld noticed a steep decline in the number of malnourished, dehydrated sea lion pups during the past two weeks. At the height of what the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) deemed an “unusual mortality event,� SeaWorld

was rescuing about 10 sea lion pups per day, which has declined to about two per day, SeaWorld spokesperson David Koontz said. NOAA’s Marine Mammal Stranding Coordinator, Sarah Wilkin, said the prevailing hypothesis for the decline is that the ocean conditions that caused a shortage of prey have improved, though it is also believed the animals could be so weak that they are dying at sea or in the Channel Islands, where they are born. While as many as 200 sea lions were being rescued in Southern California at the height of this year’s crisis, NOAA reported only 42 rescues last week.

Coronado Historic Home Tour set for Mother’s Day

This historic home on the 2013 tour picked up a GEM Award for its remarkable renovation. George Green

Del Mar

The annual Coronado Historic Home Tour has become a much-looked-forward-to Mother’s Day tradition, often combined with brunch or an early dinner at one of Coronado’s fine restaurants. This year’s offerings on May 12, promise another very special afternoon. With architectural styles ranging from a Queen Anne built in the late 1800s to a midcentury modern, from a stunning Craftsman remodel to a two-story Spanish Revival mansion, all six homes in two different Coronado neighborhoods, are classic examples of others found all around the Enchanted Island. All six homes retain their historic charm and original architectural “bones,” but most have been meticulously remodeled, expanded or restored in some fashion. The Queen Anne, built around the time the Hotel del Coronado was constructed, retains its original floors, hardware and woodworking details reminiscent of the Del, and many exotic tree specimens planted by the Hotel’s horticulturist. A 1912 home on the tour was just declared the winner of Coronado’s first-ever GEM (Going-the-Extra-Mile) Award for its remarkable renovation. A 1940s-era photo

La Jolla High graduate, filmmaker and aspiring actress Chelsea Maidhof

When we show the film to people who don’t know La Jolla they think that we shot in Hawaii or some exotic location.” Maidhof said she has been busy auditioning for everything from television to indie films since graduating, and has so far landed a small part in an independent film and a few commercial spots. Maidhof said La Jolla High drama teacher Ann Boutelle, “not only inspired me, but gave me an opportunity to do something with that inspiration. She gave me my first role ever — Sally Bowles in ‘Cabaret.’ I ran around my house singing ‘Mein Herr’ for months.”

The next CARTA symposium, “Behaviorally Modern Humans: The Origin of Us” will be from 1 to 5:30 p.m. May 10 in UC San Diego School of Medicine’s Liebow Auditorium. Though evidence indicates that multiple upright-walking, tool-dependent species in the genus homo co-existed in Africa, Asia and Europe for most of the last 2 million years, only one surviving species of homo exists today. Even 100,000 years ago, at least four homo species shared the Old World. One of the enduring questions of human origins is when, where and how “behaviorally modern humans” emerged and why and how we eventually replaced all the other human-like species. The symposium will dive into this oftcontentious discussion from multiple sources, including climate proxies, geology, fossils, archaeology, linguistics, immunology, genetics and genomics. CARTA, the Center for Academic Research and Training in Anthropogeny, hosts the monthly discussions for free, though registration is required. A live webcast will be offered for those who would live to view the proceedings remotely. To register and to see the list of session topics, visit


La Jolla resident and two-time presidential candidate Mitt Romney said he is willing to share his expertise for San Diego Mayor Bob Filner’s 2024 Olympics bid, which Filner envisions as a joint effort between San Diego and Tijuana.

La Jolla Sunrise Rotary will host a benefit gala for Angel Faces Retreat, 6:30 p.m. Saturday, May 18 at a private location in La Jolla. The event will include music, auctions and a chance to meet two of the Angels. San Diego Opera’s Nicolas Reveles will emcee. Angel Faces is a non-profit organization that helps adolescent girls with severe burn injuries and emotional scars deal with grief and trauma, plus the social and self-esteem concerns common to burn survivors. Angel Faces teaches these teens the skills to cope with potential teasing, staring and shame that their disfigurement brings. Many of these teens come from families who cannot afford to pay for the retreat themselves. Tickets are $150. For information, directions to the venue or to buy a ticket, call Barbara Gerber at (858) 456-7800 or e-mail

Though SeaWorld reports that sea lion strandings are down (See story, page A15), at press time it was reported that SeaWorld had rescued another malnourished, dehydrated sea lion pup — this one found about a quarter mile from the Marine Room restaurant, not far from the bustling traffic of Torrey Pines Road. The female sea lion was spotted at about 6:25 a.m. near Roseland Drive and Avenida Alamar. Neighbors coaxed it toward an adjacent home, where it remained for about 90 minutes, when SeaWorld rescuers arrived, according to local reports. SeaWorld spokesperson David Koontz said the mammal began eating immediately.

Filner initially proposed seeking Romney’s input as an “honorary” event chair during the TransBorder Nonprofit Fair at Point Loma Nazarene University, April 27, according to local reports. Romney was president and CEO of an organizing committee for the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.

By Greg Wiest La Jolla Photographer, Runner


Editor’s note: Be sure to see Greg Wiest’s photos of the marathon and list of the winners on page B16. y wife, Katie and I have been running together for almost 15 years. Since then, we’ve run a combined 10 marathons and nearly 80 half marathons, mostly in San Diego. We’re not particularly fast. We’ve never won a race. We’ve never finished in the top 100 and never will. I’m not being negative or pessimistic; it’s just a reality. We started running in our 30s and the math is clear. That’s OK, we love to run and will do so just as long as our bodies will permit. On Sunday, April 28, we ran the 32nd La Jolla Half Marathon. They say it’s one of the toughest half marathons in the United States. There is no doubt it is certainly challenging, but also ruggedly beautiful and worth the effort that goes into training for this event. The 13.1 course starts at the Del Mar Fairgrounds and ends at La Jolla Cove. The thing about participating in distance races is the ridiculous time in which you have to get up in the morning. My alarm startled me at 3:45 a.m. and the house already smelled of coffee. Katie had been up for a while which is her normal weekday routine. Some people are morning people, and then there’s me. I always awake with the sun unless there is a plane to catch or Molly the dog is licking my face. The last bus departed La Jolla Cove at 5:30 a.m. and we headed to the fairgrounds for the 7:30 start time. That left us an hour and a half at the staging area for runners to stretch, eat bananas and energy bars, drink fluids and to socialize.

One thing is clear at big events like marathons; pre-race hydration efforts will cause several trips to the porta-potty. While training for my first marathon, my coach gave me very good advice; “as soon as you arrive at the start of the event, get in line for the bathroom. When you finish, get back in line. When you finish get back in line again.” The man was a sage. At 7:25 came the National Anthem. Usually there is some activity and chatter during the singing, but after the tragic bombings at the Boston Marathon two weeks ago, everyone was very attentive, many were singing and paying tribute to the victims. The race announcer also had us sing “Sweet Caroline,” Neil Diamond’s 1970’s hit that is popular at Boston’s Fenway Park and has been played at every game in the middle of the eighth inning since 2002. The race started in waves of 1-6 with the fastest runners in the first wave and the slower runners in the back. This is smart so the slower runners don’t get run over. For some reason, Katie and I got low numbers and were right there in the front row with elite athletes half our age. Katie wisely said she was moving back. The front row was good for me because in addition to running the race, I was taking pictures. The gun sounded and I sprinted out of the gate and veered to the right and waited for Wave 2. They lined up as I was standing in the middle of the road to get a good centered shot (it’s on this week’s front page!) as they ran right at me. I got the shot I wanted, but I barely had time to get out of the way. No slouches in Wave 2.

Restaurant’s parking changes questionable As if parking wasn’t a real hassle in the downtown La Jolla business area, my question is this: The new Amaya restaurant was approved for 40 feet of three-minute loading after 6 p.m. nightly at 1205 Prospect St. in front of its door, and the original curb was painted this way. How is it that the “white” curb grew by about 35 more feet just before opening night, yet another two or three free public parking spots are gone? Frank J. Lepiane La Jolla

Does Children’s Pool still need a lifeguard tower? Stop mixing up A recent headline in the La Jolla Light says it seals and sea lions will cost $3.2 million to build a new lifeguard tower overlooking Children’s Pool. Am I missing something? Didn’t we long ago give up the idea of children ever using the Children’s Pool again? And why do we need to spend $3.2 million to watch over seals? I just do not understand. It would seem to me a central tower over the Cove would make a lot more sense. Swimmers are still using the Cove; so far, the seals have not moved there. We need to guard swimmers, not seals. La Jolla

I think it is important to keep our seals straight. Harbor seals and California sea lions are not the same species nor are they even in the same family of carnivores. The former are true seals and have no ear lobes as the sea lions do. Harbor seals cannot stand up on their front flippers nor fold their hind flippers under themselves as it appears in the “seal” photo shown in the April 25 issue of La Jolla Light with Robyn Gubrud’s letter to the editor. Further, I don’t think there are any rounded rocks that can be seen in the picture at the

Greg and Katie Wiest ready to run! The reason the La Jolla Half Marathon has the reputation as one of the toughest is that after mile five is The Hill. It winds its way nearly a mile up through beautiful Torrey Preserve. Most people run up the entire hill, some will walk. We do a little of both. We find you can power walk nearly as “fast” as you can run. What really makes all these races from 5K, to full 26.2-mile marathons so much fun is the people. The runners you meet from all over the country who have a goal; a goal to lose weight, a goal to raise money for worthy causes, a goal to finish the race that some in Boston weren’t able to finish. We run in packs of up to 10,000 but we run with a singular purpose. We also love the neighbors who line the street in front of their houses and offer orange slices and frozen popsicles while their kids give you a high five. Katie and I finished our run with sore aching legs but huge smiles on our faces. Thirtythree days separate us from next half marathon. We should be recovered by then.

Children’s Pool. The picture looks like it was taken near the Cove and the “seal” looks like a sea lion. Harbor seals are at Children’s Pool and sea lions are at the Cove or the rocks surrounding it. It makes a difference. Art Cooley La Jolla

Sharks are back in town because of the pinnipeds I am a disabled lady who swims with others at the Children’s Pool for our therapy. We feel safe behind the breakwater. n Check out this site for recent shark sightings all around us. I predicted the pinnipeds would starve and the sharks will make a comeback, and it’s happening! It’s all the more reason to restore the pool and have a safe haven: pacific_coast_shark_news.htm n Also, please check out Sydney’s ocean swimming pools, the pride of Australia. They have dozens of Children’s Pools and take care of them: search?search=sydney’s-tidal-swimmingpools&sort=relevance&dir=desc n Here is one final interesting website about shark attack stats: ISAF/ISAF.htm Maybe the Light should publish a good informative article about sharks and pinnipeds as the lure to our beaches.

Rotarians, Realtors and teens polish police storefront


embers of the Rotary Club of La Jolla, the La Jolla Real Estate Brokers’ Association (REBA) and high school students involved in Rotary’s Interact Club brandished brushes, shovels and smiles to paint and landscape a longneglected police storefront in Pacific Beach Saturday, April 27. The volunteer effort was in honor of Rotary International’s annual Rotarians at Work Day, which promotes the organization’s concept of ‘service above self.’ The building at 4439 Olney St., which also serves police who patrol La Jolla, provides a place for law enforcement and volunteer senior patrol officers to complete paperwork and take meal breaks. The volunteers planted sod, as well as jade, aloe and other succulent plants

donated by Realtor Carol Uribe. The team also painted fascia and window trimming with paint donated by Sherwin Williams. Dewhurst & Associates construction oversaw the entire project, helping line up contractors to install everything from new kitchen cabinets to bathroom fixtures and tile flooring. They include: Chism Brothers, Gold Coast Design, Adept Plumbing, D&N Electric, DalTile, Studio Stratton cabinets and West Coast Drywall & Paint. “They were unbelievable,” said project coordinator and Rotarian Nancy Gardner of Dewhurst. “They literally got all the sub-contractors involved, most of which volunteered. It was quite an endeavor.” San Diego Police Captain Brian Ahearn, with SDPD’s Northern Division, called the renovation “a testament to

how much people appreciate their San Diego Police officers. “No words can express just how appreciative the men and women of SDPD are for the generosity displayed by so many,” Ahearn said. “We will continue to work hard for you. The storefront symbolizes the bond that brings community and police so close to one another. … The community truly stepped up to significantly improve the working conditions for their San Diego Police officers.” Rotarians, Realtors, the La Jolla Town Council and other La Jollans raised more than $25,000 for the project, Gardner said. Another $24,000 is still needed to purchase new LAN lines and heating and air conditioning. “It’s truly a community effort until we get it completed,” Gardner said. — Pat Sherman

Interact Club students Tessa Lowe of La Jolla High School and Emily Halaka of University City High School paint a door at the rear of the police storefront.

crack shot with a rifle. She had enjoyed parasailing, scuba diving, motorcycling, hot air ballooning and even riding a camel at dawn across the desserts to see the great pyramids during her favorite trip to the holy land! Friends remember Betty as a beautiful and gracious woman who loved to entertain, shower people with gifts and excelled at etiquette! Her daughter and grandchildren will remember her as the best mother and grandmother ever! She had a kind and warm heart and a generous spirit. A legend in her day… She will surely be missed by all! A Celebration of Life Service will be held on Friday, May 3, 2013, at 4:30 pm at Torrey Pines Christian Church. A Bon Voyage Reception will follow the service. Everyone is requested to wear an accent of yellow to the service and reception as it was Betty’s favorite color!

By Michael Ragovin Last week I had an opportunity to watch a tennis match at The Bishop’s School with coach Matt Copeland as my guide. Before the match, he shared a little bit about himself and how high school tennis works. Copeland said he was born in Africa and raised in England. He’s been both the girls’ and boys’ tennis coach at Bishop’s for about four years. His alma mater is Point Loma Nazarene College where he played, as well as coached, tennis. The way high school matches are scored is a little different from the standard type of scoring we are used to seeing, Copeland said. Usually, four points wins a game (must win by two points), six games wins the set, and the first person to win either two or three sets wins the match. High school tourneys are comprised of six matches at one set a piece. The team winning the most sets wins the match. Free substitution is allowed and Copeland said he attempts to get as many different players involved as possible. In a sense, high school tennis becomes a team sport and each player has some responsibility for the team’s success. Practice time is limited due to the players’ academic schedules. This makes it difficult for some to transition psychologically between class and tennis practice. Even though Copeland addresses individual skills as much as possible, his team emphasis is on “inner” tennis, such as strategy, conduct, demeanor, court presence, attitude, the ability to learn from every experience and focus, which might be the most important lesson of all. If focus is weak then mistakes could be made that would not be if players stayed focused; this could be costly to victory. Copeland said he takes a soft approach to coaching, as opposed to enforcing numerous rules and regulations. For example, if a player misses a match or two, he/she might not start the next match. He encourages players to analyze their performances to improve their game, striving for small

Matt Copeland coaches tennis at The Bishop’s School in La Jolla. Michael Ragovin changes that will prepare them for CIF at the end of the year. For the most part, strategy is discussed before the match. During the match, Copeland told one of his players, “You are taking the ball early, your body language is upbeat and you are all over it.” In another instance, his comments to a player were, “You competed very hard in the second half of the match and became more confident, good body language, good energy. Keep the same attitude.” As he explained his role, “It’s important for me to look at how the players take a win or a loss, and what was gained and what was learned. There is always something to learn. Everyone is different and that’s why coaching is a great thing to do.” His influence will well serve his students far beyond their tennis careers.

La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club set to host Women’s Hard Court Championships The La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club will host the U.S. Tennis Association (USTA) National Senior Women’s Hard Court Tennis Championships May 13-19. Events will include both singles and doubles in the age groups: 50 and over, 60 and over, 70 and over, 80 and over, and 90 and over. The women’s events are national championships and attract the best players from all over the country. The La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club’s 41st annual Spring Senior Championships for men will also take place that week in connection with the women’s events. Although the men’s events are not national championships, they will feature many senior players who regularly compete in national tournaments. Total participation for both the men’s and women’s tournaments is expected to be 300-plus players. The La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club started each of these events and has hosted them since their inception in 1942. Tennis enthusiasts may view the tournament with free admission, though there is a nominal fee for onsite parking. Draws will be posted at the Beach Club and will be available via Matches will start at 8 a.m. on Friday and at 9 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

Clairemont Chieftains blast La High Vikings, 10-1 By Michael Ragovin La Jolla High lost to Clairemont High, 10-1, in girls softball on April 25 at the Vikings’ home field. In the top of the first, the first two Clairemont batters went down on a line drive out to left and a groundout to the shortstop. The third batter singled to right and went all the way to third on an error by the right fielder. The next batter hit a pop fly out to left and the inning was over with no scoring. The bottom of the first saw Mazzi Tamaiko reach second base on an error by the second baseman. Emi Doncheva struck out, Lilly Glenster flied out to left, followed by a pop up to the pitcher for the third out. At the end of one, there was no score. The first two batters in the top of the second grounded out to third. The third Clairemont batter singled and was thrown out trying to stretch it into a double ending the top half of the second. In the bottom half of the second, the Vikings went quietly. Two strikeouts and a ground ball to second ended the second inning and the score remained 0-0. In the top of the third,

A Clairemont player (18) leads off first while La Jolla first baseman Krista Yorgin (34) stands ready for the pitch. Michael Ragovin Clairemont scored two runs. After two pop ups, the next Clairemont hitter doubled to left followed by another double that drove in the runner on second. Then there was a runner on second with two outs. A single up the middle scored the runner from second. A double to center sent runners to second and third with two outs. The runner on third got caught in a rundown, ending the inning 2-0. La Jolla went in order in the bottom of the third with two batters striking out and a groundout. In the top of the fourth, Clairemont got things going with

a double to left center. On a grounder to short, the shortstop tried to throw out the runner going from second to third, but the runner was safe putting runners on first and third with no outs. The next batter put down a perfect bunt scoring the runner from third and beating the throw to first. The batter on first went to third and there were runners on first and third with no outs. This was followed by a fly out, a strikeout and a ground out ending the inning with score Clairemont 3, La Jolla 0. The bottom of the fourth was

another easy inning for Clairemont with La Jolla going quietly. They could manage only two groundouts and a pop fly. Clairemont scored a run in the top of the fifth on two doubles. Other than that the inning was routine. The Vikings managed to get runners on first and second with two out in the bottom of the fifth, however, they were left stranded when the last batter grounded out. The score remained 4-0 Clairemont. Clairemont scored a run in the top of the sixth on three singles, but could not drive home the

runners on first and second before a ground out ended the inning. Clairemont then led 5-0. In the bottom of the sixth La Jolla did manage to get one runner on base on a single by Mazzi Tomaiko. Two strikeouts and a ground left Mazzi stranded. In the top of the seventh, the wheels fell off for the Vikings. The first batter singled to left and with an error by the left fielder, went to third. The next batter doubled to right center scoring the runner from third. An error by the third baseman allowed another run to score putting runners on first and third with no one out. There was a pop out to second and then the runner on first stole second. A single up the middle and an infield hit drove in the last two runs of the inning. Clairemont 10, La Jolla 0. In the bottom of the seventh La Jolla scored their only run on two errors and a single by Khrista Yorgin. The Vikings were clearly over matched, however, Clairemont has an excellent team and should go deep into the CIF playoffs.

La Jolla Youth baseball pennant races tighten up By Tom Murphy

La Jolla Youth Baseball

The last few weeks of the La Jolla Youth Baseball season are full of come-from-behind victories, spectacular plays and timely home runs. The season ends May 10 and playoffs take place the following week with a leaguewide Championship Day and Closing Ceremonies on May 18 at the Cliffridge Park fields. Our guest teams always compliment us on the excellent grounds that are carefully maintained, and say LJYB is a gracious host to the other leagues. The SD Pony Inter-League play continues to be led by the LJYB teams with Aladdin maintaining their perfect record at 10-0. On the Inside Design is alone in third place with an 8-3 record. The level of play is impressive and many of these players will move on to high school teams next year. By the look of Dane Hansen’s home run last week, he’s ready for the challenge. The four Bronco teams are playing each other pretty evenly and are struggling against their Tecolote opponents. They are definitely holding their own against the Mission Bay teams. Alexandria has the best record, followed by Morgan Stanley, Mitch’s Surf Shop and Pharmatek. The best comeback so far was played a week ago between Alexandria and Pharmatek. Holding a commanding lead all game, Alexandria went into the seventh inning ahead 9-5. Pharmatek played scrappy baseball and manufactured a few runs beating out infield hits, taking advantage of a couple of walks and tied the game on a balk. They went ahead 10-9 and held the home team scoreless in the bottom half of the inning. Marco Molina got the win with two sharp innings on the hill to close out the game. Alex Scrivener hit a line shot so hard off the fence in right-center field that it shook the Pinto and Mustang fields. Sector 9 continues to dominate the Mustang division with a 10-1 record. After watching Coach Klimkiewicz run practice a couple of times, it makes sense they are a well-oiled machine. They are extremely hard working, run lots of useful drills and multiple stations in a fast-paced session. They make great plays with very few mistakes and continue to improve. Talent + Coaching = First Place. Alexandria is in second place with PacVentures and Garden Communities

The rest of the pack are playing below .500 ball and plotting their move in the playoffs. Mustang has more power this season with eight home runs to date, compared with only two last year. Diego Solis and Tyler Blackburn lead the league with three each, and Caden Fioroni and Luke Brunette recently joined the Homer’s Alley roster. Mustang will play a double-elimination playoff format that promises a lot of competition and excitement. Right before spring break, the Pinto division reset the standings and since then, RBC is the team to beat with a 6-0 record, followed closely by Voices for Children. Six teams are playing over .500 baseball and a few are chasing their first win. There is definitely a wide range of skill across the league this season but the run production is incredible. There are dozens of games where teams score 15- 20 runs and some of these barn-burners are won in walk-off fashion. RBC beat Donovan’s 21-20 in one of the most exciting games of the season. Jack Stahl is the lone Pinto player to hit one over the fence. Shetland continues to hum along and the experiment to split the kids into two divisions of Majors and Minors proved to be a benefit for all. The older kids are attacking the pitching machine from the beginning of the season, while the younger players are just not weaning off the tee and trying out the pitching machine. We have also seen better age-appropriate fielding and player development with this format, in part because the teams are much smaller in number and there aren’t kids standing around the outfield picking daises.

to Play

Children take tennis lessons at the La Jolla Rec Center, 1953. What brought you to La Jolla? I arrived in 1986 having been hired by the United Jewish Federation to head up the Women’s Division at their newly established North County office. I lived in a new area, which was known as North City West and now known as Carmel Valley. When I made the move to La Jolla, I knew I had found my paradise.


By Pat Sherman or nearly 100 years, the La Jolla Recreation Center has served as the heart and hub of the Village, offering everything from sports programs and fitness facilities to self-improvement courses and meeting rooms where groups advising the city on important issues — from development to park and beach upkeep — conduct monthly meetings. Now, the nonprofit board that makes decisions on how the city-owned rec center’s funds are spent is gearing up for the center’s 100th anniversary, and is in need of new members to help make decisions about the facilities, its programming and future. “It’s a pretty vital place,” La Jolla Recreation Council (LJRC) board chair Doug Fitzgerald said. “It’s like the traditional, good old rec center. Nobody thinks about the workings … it just goes on and on.”


What might you add or improve in the area? I’d like to see additional innovative, farm-fresh restaurants; small music venues and shopping boutiques; less vacant storefronts; and improved access into the Village. What are you currently reading? “Gone Girl” by Gillean Flynn.

How the other .02 percent lives

Let Inga tell you ...


La Jolla Cultural Partners

ne of the advantages of living in such an upscale community as La Jolla is that you get to see — and yes, sometimes even ride in — a lot of cars you could never afford. Personally, I never buy a car I don’t want someone to steal. While my husband and sons definitely have it, I was somehow born without the car gene, the one where your heart beats faster at the smell of new leather and state-of-the-art gismos. Ever since I (and my little Jetta) were crushed on I-5 a few years ago by a drunk driver, my fantasy car is a Hummer Bug. Pure parkable steel. I have a friend who

actually owns a fleet of high-end vehicles including several Ferraris in what the Ferrari-scenti call a “stable.” The cars reside in a garage that has its own air compressor (for daily checking of tire pressure), not a micro drop of oil on the floor, and nary a fingerprint on the gleaming hand-waxed auto bodies. It is actually hard to imagine that this woman and I are friends since people frequently write “Wash Me” in the dust on my 2005 Toyota in our driveway. Of course, one of the reasons her vehicles remain in such pristine condition is that you can’t actually drive them anywhere. After a tour of my friend’s garage, I couldn’t help but inquire, “So which one of these do you take to Vons?” I thought I might have to call the paramedics when I saw the stricken look on her face. One does not take these cars to Vons. In fact, they are only driven on

certified nail-free roads prescreened for lack of rocks, construction, potholes or other potential Ferrariverboten impediments. You do not take these cars anywhere without prearranged parking. The vehicle one takes to Vons is a crappy late-model Lexus barely able to hold its hood up in this stable of flashy Italian steel. Although it’s a bit of a misnomer considering the parking requirements, one of the lesser Ferraris (oxymoron?) is deemed a “daily driver.” I have a daily driver, too. It’s called my car. I confess I am positively enchanted by this term. The idea of having a vehicle deemed “the daily driver” made me realize that even in my own little community, I sometimes feel I live in a galaxy far, far away. Of course, there were occasions when both my friend and her husband required the Lexus at the same time. Hence came the

purchase of the “rain car.” I learned of this when a coffee date was confirmed with — in caps — IF IT’S NOT WET OR RAINING. My driveway is generally considered acceptable prearranged daily driver Ferrari parking (although the neighbors would fall over dead to see one sitting there) and is within walking distance of the coffee shop, but as was replied to my query, even the daily driver Ferrari does not come out of the garage “in wet.” Doesn’t have to be raining, just look like it might. Hence a “rain car” was added to the stable, which is defined as a car that is NOT a Ferrari, but can be driven should it rain and the Lexus is busy. I so love the idea of having a rain car in this perennially parched climate. My whole life I have loved the opportunity to know people who live lives very different from mine, so I confess to be endlessly fascinated to hear about the

tribulations of Ferrari owners. Buying it is only the beginning; it must, of course, be customized so it doesn’t look like every other Ferrari of its class clogging the roads. My friend and I spent an entire lunch as she recounted a recent crisis of devastating proportions when the tire pressure sensor light on the dashboard suddenly went wonky. This tire pressure gauge displays each tire in pounds per square inch. A half-hour into this litany, those of us who drive tiny Toyotas were finally forced to query, “And this is a crisis because…? A dark cloud crept across my friend’s face. She was expecting more sympathy. Waaayyy more sympathy. A fellow Ferrari owner would clearly understand the gravity of the situation. “Because you could have a slow leak and wake up the next morning with a flat!” she explained with no little exasperation.

As it turned out, the tire gauge was just fine. Just the light was flaky. $700. Actually, I have managed to live my whole life without a dashboard tire pressure sensor. My Toyota doesn’t have one, nor did its predecessor, my tragically deceased 1998 Jetta. My car has a more manual version of a tire pressure gauge, which was activated when I recently drove over to Tourmaline to walk on the beach, heard a sudden loud hiss and felt my car list to starboard. “I think I have lost tire pressure,” I said to myself. Frankly, the feature I covet in a car is that proximity feature that beeps when someone is about to back their SUV into you at Vons. Alas, it does not come standard on a Corolla. If someone would just make a Hummer Bug, I guess it wouldn’t matter. — Look for Inga’s column three weeks of every month. Reach her by e-mail at

Raw and ready: New super-food vitality bar opens in Del Mar By Kelley Carlson pen just four months at the Albertsons shopping center on Via de la Valle, Del Mar’s super-food vitality bar is already drawing customers seeking a superhealthy lifestyle. In fact, between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., it’s not unusual to see lines going out the door at bBar, according to owner Lisa Odenweller. People of all ages come for fare that promises long-term health benefits from a menu concocted by Odenweller and a team of renowned raw food and holistic chefs: Simone Powers, Adina Niemerow, Matthew Kenney, Meredith Baird and Susan Sbicca. The freshness provides further appeal, as items are made on site — from almond milk and orange juice to dressing and flax crackers. “We love playing with super-food,” Odenweller said. “Everything is created for a purpose.” For example, there’s the Rockstar, a madeto-order smoothie that derives its bluishgreen color from E3Live Blue Majik, an algae product that aids in muscle recovery and alleviates inflammation, among other possible benefits. It’s blended with sprouted almond milk, coconut water, banana, Beaming Protein, coconut butter, date and vanilla. And then there’s the Sexy Mayan, a spicy chocolate concoction that contains maca to boost energy and libido. There are even “Beaming Kids Tastebud Approved” items for the younger set, such as the Beaming Basic in vanilla or chocolate. “As a parent, I feel really good about it,” Odenweller said. Her own children formulated one of the beverages: Mom I Ate My Veggies! that also has fruit and is filled with antioxidants, fiber, protein and vitamins.

Along with smoothies, bBar makes hydraulic cold-pressed juices that retain more vitamins and nutrients than produce squeezed in the standard juicer, and they last up to five days. A couple of them (including the Skinny Cooler with pineapple, cucumber, mint and jalapeño) can double as cocktail mixers. There are power tonics, such as the coldand-flu-fighting Immunity Booster. Especially popular during the winter, it’s a potent mix of orange juice, oregano oil, ginger, cayenne, astragalus and elderberry. Customers unsure of what smoothies or juices to order may request samples at the counter. While waiting for their selections, they may sit at a patio table; curl up on the couch underneath a TV that will eventually play videos touting the benefits of superfoods; or perch on a stool at the bar. There are more than just beverages at

bBar. If you need a snack, there’s the Beaming Protein Bite. It’s very much like a healthful cookie, but people eat them like candy. The Bite is a compact combination of coconut flour, almond butter, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, hemp seeds, chia seeds, Beaming Protein, lucuma, goji berries and coconut sugar. For something a bit more substantial, bBar has a variety of raw foods, salads, bottled soups and quinoa that change daily. Among them are the Coconut Ceviche, a festively colored dish with coconut meat, finely diced cucumbers, grape tomatoes, red bell peppers, red onion, jalapeño, cilantro and Himalayan salt, all marinating in lime juice; and the cool and refreshing organic Thai Salad with almond Thai dressing. For those who want takeout, there are

bento boxes complete with vegetables, Beaming flax chips, quinoa and Chipotle Bitchin’ Dipping Sauce. For people who desire more than just a single healthy meal, bBar offers raw, organic, plant-based cleanses. “They’re designed to work for you,” Odenweller said, whether it’s to aid in weight loss, boost mental clarity, improve skin, discover possible food allergies, or to just feel better in general. BBar creates the base and it’s up to the consumer to adapt it to his or her needs. There are one-, three- and four-day cleanse options, and customers can collect the fresh items daily at the super-food vitality bar. The products can also be picked up at La Jolla Sports Club and at Yoga Six in Carlsbad, Point Loma and eventually 4S Ranch.

Las Patronas announces 2013 beneficiaries By Ashley Mackin Las Patronas held a brunch on April 24 at the Hotel Parisi to announce the beneficiaries of its 2013 fundraising efforts and explain the theme of its 2013 Jewel Ball, “Lucky 13: Changing Views, Changing Lives.” The “Lucky 13” major beneficiaries are: Maritime Museum Association of San Diego, Special Olympics of San Diego County, Nativity Prep Academy, Outside the Lens, San Diego Junior Lifeguard Foundation, San Diego Public Library Foundation, Center for Community Solutions, So Others May Eat Incorporated, Sharp Mary Birch Hospital for Women and Newborns, and Urban Corps of San Diego County. There are also more than 20 minor beneficiaries. “It’s so exciting what all these groups are doing and we’re so happy to be able to fund them,” said member Jenna Joyce. This year, Las Patronas has committed $347,000 to community nonprofits. Acknowledging their fundraising ambitions, the membership distributed $300,000 to 23 nonprofits in the spring grant cycle. Las Patronas President Pat Marsch said the organization will highlight one beneficiary per week leading up to the Jewel Ball on a new Facebook page. She added that members are excited to use social media technology as a way to explain their philanthropy. The Facebook page will also list businesses that support Las Patronas by hanging “lucky stars” in their shops. By spending $50 at these businesses, shoppers can enter to win two tickets to the Jewel Ball on Aug. 3 at the La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club.

Playing off superstition, she said Las Patronas will combine symbols that are considered both lucky and unlucky, and use them in a positive light. For example, an upside down horseshoe will be wrapped in four-leafed clovers. There will also be broken mirrors juxtaposed with lucky pennies. “In developing the theme for Lucky 13, it was (Jewel Ball Chair) Erin Wyers’ primary intent to keep a positive perspective throughout the whole year and the Jewel Ball process,” she said.

FROM Rec Center, B1 The nonprofit LJRC has about eight members, though it may have as many as 15. Prospective members must live in La Jolla or own a business here, and attend three monthly meetings prior to joining. Meetings are held the fourth Wednesday of each month at 5 p.m. in the Rec Center auditorium. “What we’d really like to get are the parents of children who use the Rec Center,” said LJRC treasurer Hobe Schroeder. “We don’t currently have any parents of young children on our board, so we would love to get their input.” Fitzgerald said he also welcomes new members. “The influx is always great for new ideas,” he said. The Rec Center was built and designed in 1915 by master architect Irving Gill, through money and land donated by philanthropist Ellen Browning Scripps. It was dedicated that same year to the City of San Diego for the children of La Jolla, and is today designated as a local historical landmark. Fitzgerald said the board is already beginning to plan for the center’s 100th anniversary celebration, on July 3, 2015. In the meantime, the board is seeking donations of money and/or labor to help spruce up the center. “We’re planning on a pretty big celebration on that day,” Fitzgerald said. “Our job really is to maintain the center and make sure that property stays in shape for the next 100 years and beyond.” Schroeder was recruited by the late George “Walt” Hall to join the LJRC board

The LJRC also makes decisions about the permitted use of several parks, including Cliffridge Park and Allen Field. Fitzgerald said meetings usually last only an hour. “We do it quickly and succinctly; we don’t spend hours talking,” he said. “People’s time is valuable.” Schroeder said his time on the board has afforded him a way to give back to the community and make a difference in the lives of local youth. “I feel these kids are our future, so it was a great opportunity for me and I’m still doing it,” he said. “We’re one of the very few rec centers in the whole city of San Diego that keeps morning hours, because we buy 15 hours per week from the city.”

moving to Oregon. “Because of him we still have so much money in our kitty — and we’re really indebted to his service.” The Rec Center relies on donations and some funding, including a $25,000 annual grant from the Ellen Browning Scripps Foundation, which is usually spent on major repairs and youth programming. However, the Rec Center will need money to completely repaint the exterior prior to the centennial, Fitzgerald said. “We’re already trying to get bids on it now,” he said, adding that the center also needs new flooring. “We’ve got tile in the main room from 1950. … Hopefully, we get help from the City of San Diego, but the city doesn’t really have a lot of money.”

La Jollan inspires with postumous book about living as quadriplegic By Ashley Mackin La Jollan June van Lint’s story is one of living a full life despite any limitations — and survival. Having lived a life full of travel and family, van Lint spent 46 years as a quadriplegic before passing away on March 30. Along her journey, she wrote her story with her one usable finger on an electrical typewriter, calling it “My New Life.” You can read it online at Living 46 years in the condition van Lint found herself is almost unheard of, according to her husband Victor. (The Guinness World Record is 54 years). However, June survived several serious health complications and traveled the world. In 1966, the van Lints were on vacation in Oregon with their four adopted children when the family was in a car accident. “June got a whiplash injury in her neck with no significant nerve damage, but doctors had to perform a cervical fusion operation to stabilize

the vertebrae,” Victor said. After the surgery, she was in a coma for six weeks. When June woke up, she could only move her head and had minor use of her

left hand and could not speak. Over the years, she overcame several illnesses that typically end the life of a quadriplegic. People with conditions similar to June’s often die when they get their first lung infection; pools of liquid form in the lungs and you get pneumonia and you can’t breathe well … 75 percent of causes of death are pneumonia … June had several cases of lung infections and a number of cases of pneumonia, and she recovered from them all.”

Hannah Orr, Jake Correa, Lauren Nordholm and Hanne Manriquea rehearse for La Jolla High’s production of ‘The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.’ Courtesy

La Jolla High drama students set stage for spelling bee fun William Finn’s Tony Award-winning musical comedy, “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee,” will be presented by La Jolla High School’s theater department May 3-11 in the school’s Parker Auditorium. La Jolla High juniors Ashley Stratton, Hallie Bodenstab, Hannah Orr, and senior Lauren Nordholm choreographed the production, which is directed by drama department chief Ann Boutelle. The show centers on a fictional spelling bee at Putnam Valley Middle School, where six quirky adolescents compete in the 858.663.4205

contest run by three equally quirky adults. Sophomore Celie Mitchard said the production’s irreverent songs and language may not be suitable for young children, referencing one song about a male contestant who is distracted by an attractive women in the audience. “It seems like it would be a middle school, innocent play, but it brings it to that level,” Celie said. The production includes some audience participation; random theatre-goers will be asked to join the cast onstage to spell words. — Pat Sherman

Prior to the pre-dawn start, runners board a shuttle bus taking them from La Jolla Cove to the starting line at Del Mar Fairgrounds.

Spectators with signs of ‘support’ add to the runners’ highs.

Many runners remembered the victims of the April 15 Boston Marathon, where two pressure-cooker bombs exploded killing 3 people and injuring 264.

Don’t be shellfish — share crustaceans on National Shrimp Day

Kitchen Shrink By Catharine L. Kaufman


mericans love their shrimp, chowing down 1.7 billion pounds a year. We’re paying homage to this beloved, multi-tasking crustacean that can be dressed up in cocktail sauce at a black tie event or skewered California casual style on the Barbie, by celebrating National Shrimp Day on May 10. Here’s a primer to help you navigate through the shoals of the shrimp world to get the most out of this remarkable seafood. The world is your oyster Shrimp are low cal (about 14 calories apiece, unless you opt for the battered, deep-fried route), packed with lean protein, bone-

boosting Vitamin D, stressbusting B-12, heart-healthy omega-3s, selenium, calcium and phosphorous. Although high in cholesterol, they are virtually free of saturated fats, so go ahead and shrimp-up. Do an Asian stir fry with jumbo shrimp and asparagus in a spicy chili paste, a Spanish paella, an Italian frittata blending shrimp with broccoli rabe, some southern hospitality with shrimp and grits, Big Easy Cajun with jambalaya and gumbo, a shrimp bisque paired with kale and quinoa or a Thai satay with peanut sauce. Toss grilled shrimp in pasta or salad or munch them au naturel with some sassy horseradish sauce. Walk on the wild side Although trawling for shrimp (wild-caught) is not a perfect practice as it can damage the ocean floor and snag innocent marine bystanders (bycatch), it still trumps farm-raised by a long shot. Unsustainable, industrial shrimp farms not only wreak havoc on communities and the environment, but create a potential

months, cooked only two months. When storing in the fridge, shrimp should be consumed within two days.

Knock-your-socks-off Shrimp Martini ■ Ingredients, Serves 6: 1 1/2 pounds wild-caught jumbo shrimp, cooked, halved 1 dozen whole colossal shrimp, cooked 1/4 cup Absolut Peppar Vodka plus additional for finishing 2 tablespoons Persian cucumber, minced 2 tablespoons Tabasco sauce 2 cups vegetable cocktail 1 cup tomato juice 1/4 cup lemon juice 2 Roma tomatoes, diced 1 firm avocado, diced 2 tablespoons cilantro, minced 2 tablespoons red onion, minced

In for the count Shrimp by the pound is designated by the “count” to determine the size. The lower the count, the larger the shrimp. And in a shrimp lover’s world, the bigger the better, especially for grilling. Under 10 per pound is “Extra Colossal,” under 12 is “Super Colossal,” under 15 is “Colossal,” 16 to 20 is “Extra Jumbo,” 21 to 25 “Jumbo,” 26 to 30 “Extra Large,” 31 to 35 is “Large,” 41 to 50 is “Medium,” and 51 to 60 is “Small” (microscopic).

■ Method: In a medium size glass bowl combine the sauce ingredients. Set aside the dozen colossal shrimp, and add the jumbo shrimp to the sauce. Toss gently. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours. Evenly distribute the shrimp mixture into six martini glasses. Add 2 colossal shrimp to each martini and top with additional vodka as desired. Garnish with lemon twists or gigantic stuffed olives.

health hazard to crustaceanphiles. As farms are crowded and unsanitary, the shrimps become contaminated with antibiotics to pesticides, passing along these toxins to the consumer. Buyer’s guide Where possible, buy wildcaught (or sustainably farmed) domestic and always from a reputable fishmonger. Read

labels, and avoid questionable countries of origin. As shrimp are extremely perishable, choose wisely. Raw shrimp should be firm with an opaque appearance, and you should detect only a mild smell. A pungent ammonia aroma means it is past its “best when used by” date. Flash frozen beats “fresh” defrosted, and can be stored in the freezer for up to six

Shrimp tid bits The Lion’s Share: Shrimp accounts for 30 percent of seafood sales in the U.S. Designer Shades: The most popular shrimp species (1,900 in all) are the white, pink, brown, blue and striped Tiger. Made in China: About 75 percent of farmed shrimp are produced in Asia. Crustacean cousins: Prawns and shrimps are not

created equal—the former having a more streamlined abdomen and longer legs with a texture and taste comparable to lobster. Cook’s tips Shrimp must be cooked like Baby Bear’s porridge — just right. If overdone, it becomes chewy and rubbery, underdone, mushy and possibly unsafe. Shrimp cooks quickly (large — 3 to 5 minutes). When opaque throughout, it’s done. When boiling shrimp, add a cup of white vinegar to remove any fishy taste. Add cooked shrimp at the tail end of cooking a dish. When cooking raw shrimp, leave the shell on to maintain flavor and succulent texture. To enhance shrimp’s texture, soak in brine for an hour (mixture of water, sea salt and sugar). Save and freeze shells to make a fish stock. In honor of this fine day, here’s a celebratory recipe for an intoxicating seafood martini to toast the guest of honor. Cheers!

World Music Festival comes to Scripps Park on May 11 By Lonnie Burstein Hewitt On May 11, the Center for World Music will celebrate its 50th anniversary with a multi-cultural performing arts festival in Ellen Browning Scripps Park, overlooking La Jolla Cove. The daylong event will feature 25 master artists performing traditional music and dance from countries as diverse as India, Australia, Zimbabwe, Brazil, and the Philippines, and will give music-lovers a chance to learn Peruvian dance and try their skill on instruments like the Indonesian gamelan, the Aussie dijeridu, and the Kenyan drums. The Center for World Music (CWM) had its beginnings in San Francisco in 1963, as a nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing traditional artists from Asia to the United States for workshops and performances. Originally called the American Society for Eastern Arts, its co-founders were ethnomusicologist Robert E. Brown, a specialist in Indonesian music, and performing arts patrons Samuel and Luise Scripps. Sam Scripps, a grandson of E.W. Scripps, was a major supporter of dance and theater companies around the country; his wife was devoted to classical Indian dance. Bob Brown, who first coined the term “world music,” broadened the organization’s name and moved its base to San Diego in 1979, when he became chair of the music department at San Diego State University. What the center is known for is bringing gifted performers from around the world into K-12 classrooms, making traditional

Its mission — to foster awareness and understanding of global performing arts and cultures — has given thousands of San Diegans an opportunity to interact with master artists and learn from them. Since Brown’s death in 2005, SDSU music professor Lewis “Pete” Peterman has been president of CWM, and for the past four years, his former student, John Gabriel, has been executive director. “I started out by going along on a workshop/tour of Ghana, and ended up buying and shipping instruments — drums made from single pieces of wood — from there to San Diego,” Gabriel said. “Now I

We also hope to generate a broad base of support for our organization and get others to join us in pursuing our

mission.” Last week, Gabriel announced that the CWM had just received a grant of $50,000 from the National Endowment for the Arts. “We’re thrilled that they recognize our uniqueness, in getting master artists who are authentic culture-bearers to work with public school students, and allowing them to present their art and their culture on their own terms,” he said. “And we’re hoping to secure a matching grant by September 15, so we can start working with San Diego Unified School District to plan our next year.”

If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. 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) 730-2727, or visit the Internet Web site

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. P1031415 4/18, 4/25, 05/02/2013.

FROM Author, B10 actively as she could, June traveled around the world to every continent except Antarctica, often by cruise. Writing about her travels and the adventures therein, June’s story further explores the first four years of her life as a quadriplegic. As to how her story ended, Victor said, “You couldn’t have scripted it better.” In November 2012 June developed a case of pneumonia and had to go to the hospital. While there, doctors discovered she had colon cancer, so she had surgery to remove it. After the surgery, she no longer had what was left of her mobility. Thankfully, Victor said right around the time June would have become frustrated, they had planned to take a cruise. The two spent 28 days traveling Hawaii and the South Pacific Ocean. Two weeks after they returned, June suffered a stroke from which she did not recover. “Her life was over. It was time for it to end,” he said. “Maybe I’m supposed to be sad, but I couldn’t have asked for anything better.” Victor said the message of her book is “no

Finch’s Wine Bar hosts ‘Spring Into Fashion’ charity event By Ashley Mackin inch’s Wine and Bistro held its inaugural Spring Into Fashion show and fundraiser on April 28 at the restaurant, 7644 Girard Ave. Patrons had the opportunity to donate clothes to My Girlfriends Closet while seeing the newest ensembles from local boutiques. The idea was to “spring clean your closet and we’ll show you what new spring fashions there are,” said Finch’s co-owner Tiana Ravdin. A mother-in-law/daughter-in-law business, Finch’s has been a longtime supporter of My Girlfriend’s Closet, a mother-daughter-run foundation that collects clothing for teens in need. Clients are sometimes in foster care or homeless youth. “They set up the donations in a boutique atmosphere so that girls can feel like they are shopping even though it’s by donation,” Ravdin said. Mimi in Red and Pink Lagoon, both La Jolla boutiques, provided the “runway” clothes, which were available for sale immediately afterward. A portion of all the food and clothing sales, in addition to the clothes brought by guests, went to My Girlfriend’s Closet. Clothing bins for My Girlfriend’s Closet will be at Finch’s throughout the week and donations are still being accepted.
