Auction breaks museum fundraising records

Sunday, May 11


Seniors fill iPhone class at Community Center, A1

BY PAT SHERMAN The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (MCASD) held its most successful biennial art auction to date — drawing 375 bidders and raising $900,000 in net proceeds for the institution’s programs and future art acquisitions. The auction, held April 30 at the nonprofit organization’s Prospect Street museum in La Jolla, was also the most successful, single fundraising event in MCASD’s 73-year history, said its director, Hugh Davies. “I’ve been on cloud nine since last Wednesday,” he said. “We knew we had a great success on our hands.” The auction featured 100 works obtained via the museum’s relation-

ships with artists and galleries around the world, including donations from La Jolla gallery owners Scott White, Joseph Bellows, Jose Tasende, Mark Quint and Ron Stevenson. “We hope it’s a rising tide that lifts all ships — the galleries and the artist,” Davies said. “There was a time when we were afraid we were cutting into their market — that people would come and shop at our auction and then wouldn’t have money to spend at their galleries — but the evidence over the years is quite the opposite. It makes people go and visit those galleries. It really is a sort of highcard introduction to collecting.”

Al Bercuson, Jonathan’s store manager, and Michael Dallo of Dallo Enterprises, bid adieu to the store’s loyal customers. The gourmet market, which once included a live lobster tank near the front entrance, opened in 1970. It was purchased by the Dallo family in 1995. PHOTOS BY PAT SHERMAN

BY PAT SHERMAN espite months of refutations from employees and its main office, on April 30 the management of Jonathan’s Market at 7611 Fay Ave., finally confirmed rumors of the store’s closing with a simple message written on a dry-erase board set outside the front door: “Thank you La Jolla for 18 wonderful years. Jonathan’s will be closing its doors for good on June 1, 2014.” Exiting Jonathan’s with a cart of groceries May 1, La Jolla Community Planning Association trustee Nancy Manno said she was “heartbroken” at the news. “When I walked in yesterday afternoon and saw the sign, I started to cry,” Manno said. “I opened a house charge (at Jonathan’s) the third day they opened the store. … I know the manager. I can call and say, ‘I really wish you’d get this particular cookie or this particular thing.’ ” Warwick’s employee Jim Stewart, who has shopped at Jonathan’s for the past two decades, called the closing of San Diego’s first gourmet market a “great loss for the Village.” Stewart said he preferred Jonathan’s for its selection of fresh fruits and vegetables, fine wine and “that hardto-find spice or gourmet extra. “The deli has the best sandwiches, meat counter, and selection of salads and pre-cooked dinners,” he said. “Others say the prices are high, which is true in some cases, but I was willing to pay a little extra for their excellent customer service. … Plus, it was carpeted, which made shopping there an even greater pleasure.” Store manager Al Bercuson said all house charge accounts will be transferred to the company’s Harvest Ranch Market in Encinitas, which carries the same products. Customers will still be able to phone Jonathan’s, the existing line for which will transfer to the Encinitas store. “We’re also going to have a free delivery service from the Harvest Ranch SEE JONATHAN’S CLOSING, AA2

Parks & Beaches says ‘no’ to bike-share kiosks BY ASHLEY MACKIN During the April 28 meeting of La Jolla Parks and Beaches (LJP&B) community advisory group, members expressed specific concerns about proposed DecoBike bike-share kiosk locations — eventually voting not to support any of the locations within their purview. Through DecoBike, with whom the City of San Diego entered into a corporate agreement last year, bicycles can be rented from kiosks throughout the city — checked out at one location and returned to another. Of the 14 kiosk locations proposed for La Jolla, eight are in the Village, three in La Jolla Shores, two in Bird Rock, and one in WindanSea. Two of the Village

locations are within the jurisdiction of LJP&B. The suggested spots would each replace two street parking spaces (on Coast Boulevard at Girard Avenue and Coast Boulevard near Jenner Street). A third, near Tourmaline Park, potentially falls on the La Jolla side of the Pacific Beach/La Jolla border and was considered as such by LJP&B. The city’s bicycle coordinator, Thomas Landre, came to the meeting to address concerns. He explained that DecoBike would install and maintain the kiosks at no cost to the city, but at some point DecoBike would share the revenue with the city. Regardless, LJP&B member Sally Miller

FROM JONATHAN’S CLOSING, AA1 in Encinitas to La Jolla for the rest of the year,” Bercuson said. “Anything that we need to bring into that store to accommodate the people in La Jolla, we will.” Following the closure of Burns Drugs on Girard Avenue, Jonathan’s becomes the second longstanding La Jolla business to shut its doors in the past few months. Jonathan’s opened more than four decades ago as part of the Big Bear grocery chain founded by John Mabee. Its current owner, Dallo Enterprises, which operates a handful of Foodland Markets in the South Bay, and Harvest Ranch Markets in Encinitas and El Cajon, bought the store in 1995 (a third Harvest Ranch in Del Mar closed its doors Dec. 31, 2013). Michael Dallo, who serves as general counsel for his family’s business, said a La Jolla businessman approached Dallo Enterprises about opening a theater at the site. His family will retain ownership of the property, leasing space to the theater operator. “A lot of thought went into it,” Dallo said. “He met with (my) family and the board and after long talks and a lot of thought we decided it was in the best interest of the company and for La Jolla that we proceed. ... “It’s been bittersweet, for our family as

Employees Patrick Woodland and Sharon Heinz say they will miss Jonathan’s customers most. “People have come in weeping because they love this store so much — just like Burns drugstore,” Heinz said. “There will never be another store like Jonathan’s.” PAT SHERMAN well,” he added, noting that most of Jonathan’s 35 full- and part-time employees are being offered jobs at other stores owned by Dallo Enterprises. “This has been the crown jewel of our family’s business, so it was a tough decision to make.”

Theater in the wings If the city approves plans to convert the space to a cinema, it would be the first movie theater in the Village since the Cove Theatre on Girard Avenue closed in 2002. Staff in the city’s Development Services

Department are reviewing preliminary plans for tenant improvements, to include some minor demolition and the inclusion of auditoriums, a lobby, bathrooms, employee room, storage, offices and concessions area on the ground level. The applicant is also seeking to raise the height of the roof and add second-level projector rooms and another storage area. La Jolla Architect Michael Morton, whose firm, Marengo Morton Architects, is located next door to the space where the Cove Theatre once was (7730 Girard Ave.

near Kline Street), said he thinks the return of a movie house would boost the Village atmosphere. “It might be a good thing for the local merchants to keep people in La Jolla, rather than people exiting La Jolla,” he said. La Jolla Historical Society staff historian Carol Olten, a former film critic, said she is “very happy about a movie theater opening in La Jolla again.” Underground parking at the site could be its saving grace, she said, noting that a lack of parking may have led to the Cove’s demise — particularly when its owners considered redeveloping the single-screen theater (then under Landmark Theatres’ auspices) as a multiplex. The only single-screen movie theater left in San Diego is the Ken Cinema in San Diego’s Kensington neighborhood, which was nearly shuttered last month, though it will remain open now, with improvements, largely due to outcry from cinema buffs. According to Olten, at one time La Jolla had two other movie houses — the Granada Theatre (at the corner of Wall Street and Girard Avenues, where La Plaza La Jolla is being developed) and the Unicorn Cinema, at the corner of La Jolla Boulevard and Pearl Street (today, Kitchen Expo). ◆ — The Light will have more on the new theater in its May 15 issue and at

FROM MUSEUM, AA1 Davies said 12 items in the live auction grossed about $600,000, while 90 more moderately priced works in the silent auction brought in about $430,000. “It really was a more democratic auction,” he said. “You didn’t have to be a significant collector.” MCASD Chief Curator Kathryn Kanjo conducted this year’s auction. “She did a fantastic job of securing works at a low price-point from important, emerging artists and significant established artists, so that there were many works in the $1,000 to $4,000 range,” Davies said. “It meant that younger people could afford to participate, and for the first time we saw a really significant representation of people in their 30s and 40s who were excited to be bidding and taking works home. … It really makes us a collecting community and gets people living with and thinking about art on a daily basis.” Standout items and winning bids this year included: “Waiting for the Sibyl” by William Kentridge ($130,000); “Red Ready” by Ed Ruscha ($85,000); “Animal (Black) at Ocean: Tranquil” by John Baldessari ($85,000); and “Coil” by Liza Lou ($80,000). Auction attendees included philanthropists Irwin and Joan Jacobs, Peter and Olivia Farrell, art collectors Matt and Iris Strauss, Blink 182 frontman Tom DeLonge and wife Jennifer, singer Sia (known for her recent hit “Titanium”), and

FROM BIKE SHARE, AA1 said, “I am going to be a Negative Nancy about this whole thing. To start, I am not willing to give up one parking place in La Jolla. We fight for every single parking space. “And I am not willing to give up one inch of our public sidewalks to put these (privately owned) pieces in.” LJP&B Chair Dan Allen reported hearing that in New York, where a similar bike-share program is used, there was a problem with bicycles piling up at one location and empty kiosks at others. Landre responded that DecoBike would hire truck drivers to transport bicycles to ensure there would be bicycles at every location and to redistribute any excess. LJP&B member Debbie Beacham expressed concern that the bike-share program would be competition for rental companies already in La Jolla. “These companies pay rent here and some struggle to stay in

Bidding begins at Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego’s 2014 Biennial Art Auction under the guidance of auctioneer Mariana Gantus Joseph of Christie’s. STACY KECK Fred Savage of TV’s “The Wonder Years,” who bid by phone. (Mobile bidding was offered for the first time this year via an app accessible on bidders’ smartphones or tablets, allowing them to bid on silent auction items from around the world.) MCASD members Terry Gulden and husband Renee Comeau of La Jolla placed a winning bid on a large ink drawing by contemporary artist Robert Therrien. A piece by abstract painter Jack Whitten that they purchased at a previous MCASD auction previously hangs in their living room. “Hugh will never allow anything in the auction that they wouldn’t have in their

business,” she said. “You would be coming in and taking a huge segment of potential business. It seems unfair to local merchants.” Responding, Landre argued that bike sharing is intended for short trips and that renting for an extended period of time would be “very expensive.” DecoBike is geared toward memberships, and with a $99 annual membership, riders are entitled to unlimited 30-minute rides. Additional fees are charged if the bike is not docked within 30 minutes. Without a membership, rentals are $5 for a half hour, $7 an hour, and $12 for two hours, with added fees for each additional 30 minutes. LJB&B member Melinda Merryweather said she dislikes the fact that DecoBike does not rent helmets. However, Landre said those under age 18 cannot check out a DecoBike, and helmets are not required for adult riders. The sole voice in favor of the program, with certain limitations,

collection — and that says a lot,” said Comeau. “A lot of museums will put anything up for auction that they can get their hands on.” By arrangement with the contributing artist or gallery, any item not reaching its minimum bid suggested by the artist was retained by MCASD for its collection. “That gives the participants in the auction enormous confidence that all these works have been very carefully pre-screened by professional curators,” Davies said.

was Patrick Ahern, who said he supports bike sharing, but not having kiosks on public property. Having heard from most of the board, LJP&B member Rebecca Morales made a motion that it be the position of LJP&B that it does not support installing kiosks in public areas within its jurisdiction. The motion was unanimously approved.

will be employed for the planned expansion of MCASD’s La Jolla gallery space by New York architect Annabelle Selldorf — an exciting prospect, but one that Davies says still has some vetting. “We’ll start testing the waters this summer with an outside campaign consultant doing a feasibility study,” he said. “There are a lot of important steps that we have to test in terms of the feasibility of being able to build what we want to build and then … to see whether our supporters and donors see this as a sufficiently compelling priority that they want to make happen.” ◆

■ The Whale View Point project, which identified five areas in need of improvement within Whale View Point and designated tasks to better each one, received $2,500 from the La Jolla Conservancy. The Conservancy designed the project, but handed the reigns to LJP&B in March so the board would be responsible for its implementation. Whale View Point is bound by 274 Coast Boulevard at the south end, People’s Wall at the north end, the intertidal zone to the west and Coast Boulevard to the east. The project is broken down so that each task may be done independent of one another as funds or resources become available. Morales noted that some tasks to do not require permits or funding, so those could be accomplished first. Those who wish to get involved or to learn more are invited to contact Ann Dynes at anndynes@ to schedule a walk-

Allen explained that approximately 10 years ago, the council agreed to donate money generated from a vending machine on the Rec Center grounds to Scripps Park improvements. The restroom rehabilitation, being the first project to fit the bill, received all the funds collected to this point. Judy Adams-Halter, heading the renovation committee, accepted the funds and said the committee hopes to have an architect confirmed by early June, and to begin fundraising in mid-August. ◆ — LJP&B next meets 4 p.m. May 19 (one week earlier than its regularly scheduled meeting due to Memorial Day) at the La Jolla Rec Center, 615 Prospect St.

iUnderstand Community Center iPhone class helps people connect BY ASHLEY MACKIN he iPhone class at the La Jolla Community Center, though relatively new, has already had a big impact on those who attend. With the goal of bringing inexperienced iPhone users up to technological speed, the two day per week class (10 a.m. Mondays and Wednesdays) covers topics such as managing phone calls, using the voice command program Siri, taking and sharing photos, and apps. “I thought about all the educational things we do at the center and what I could offer personally,” instructor Eva Dunlap said. “Working with older adults, the big gap is with technology. This class is bridging that gap for seniors who want to better connect with their families.

■ What is an app? The term “app” is a shortening of the term “application software.” Mobile apps were originally offered for information retrieval, including e-mail, calendar, contacts, stock market and weather information. However, public demand and the availability of developer tools drove rapid expansion into other categories, such as mobile games, factory automation, GPS and location-based services, banking, order-tracking, ticket purchases and more recently, mobile medical apps.

It’s such an easy way to learn the iPhone rather than go on the Internet and try to figure it out on your own.” During a recent class, Schneider used voice-to-text to dictate a text message, and attached a photo to the message. The stories from the less-than-tech-savvy class members range from grandmothers hoping to connect with grandkids to retirees with newfound independence. “One woman almost broke down crying when she told me she spoke to her granddaughter more since taking the class than she had in the last 10 years,” Dunlap recalled. Another story she hears often comes from retirees who worked in business for 20 or 30 years, and always had a secretary.

Planners reject summer Cove construction, approve valet parking for Plaza La Jolla BY PAT SHERMAN During its May 1 meeting the La Jolla Community Planning Association (LJCPA) — which makes recommendations to the City of San Diego on land use matters — considered parking issues and heard details about a plan to reduce hazards from an old dump site at Pottery Canyon. Despite trustees’ concerns about the proliferation of valet parking in La Jolla (and the resulting loss of street parking to accommodate such operations) the LJCPA approved a request to replace four street spaces in the 7800 block of Girard Avenue with a white-curbed passenger loading and valet parking zone. The zone will serve as a valet area for the new La Plaza La Jolla boutique shopping complex under construction at the intersection

of Girard Avenue and Wall Street (the former Jack’s restaurant and nightclub complex). La Jolla’s Traffic and Transportation (T&T) committee approved the request, though LJCPA trustee Fran Zimmerman pulled it from the LJCPA’s consent agenda last month for further discussion. Representing the applicant, Sunset Parking Service, Jared Svendsen said his company has a contract to park vehicles in about 110 tandem spaces in a garage beneath the adjacent Brooks Brothers building, which also provided parking for Jack’s. The valet service would accommodate patrons of an estimated 20 La Plaza tenants, including a third-story restaurant. Svendsen said the valet service would improve traffic flow in the

La Jolla Community Planning Association Village by getting as many as 300 cars per day off the street (during peak season) and into one of La Jolla’s under-utilized parking structures. The service would operate from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. daily and cost $8 per vehicle, though it would likely jump to $9 or $10 an hour if a minimum wage increase in San Diego is approved, he said. “There’s a lot of unused spaces every day going to waste,” he said. “By giving up four spaces as a passenger loading-valet zone

we’re able to constantly move vehicles off the street and put them into a garage that people wouldn’t normally find. … La Jolla’s parking problem, I believe, is that people just don’t know where it is.” Noting that La Plaza would include sidewalk café seating on both Girard Avenue and Wall Street, attendee Sally Miller asked where valet parking would be located and whether there would be enough room left for pedestrians on the sidewalk. Svendsen said the valet service could operate without a podium, if necessary, to occupy less sidewalk area. LJCPA trustees Bob Collins and Nancy Manno noted that before Jack’s closed in the summer of 2009, surveillance conducted on the valet operation at that site

found valets parking cars in public spaces on Girard and in the Union Bank lot, instead of the Brooks Brothers garage. Svedsen conceded that “some folks I’m associated with” operated the valet service for Jack’s, though added, “If you ever notice something that’s not being done right with the team out there, I want to know about it; we don’t want to lose our permit.” LJCPA First Vice-president Patrick Ahern asked if three parking spaces would offer enough room to operate the valet (Sunset initially requested six spaces when they presented at T&T). “Ideally, it’s four, but I’ll take what I can get from the board,” Svedsen said, noting that he hopes there would be an

OBITUARIES Leopoldo Terrero

1949 – 2014 Leopoldo “Leo” Terrero, 64, of La Jolla, California, passed away on April 26, 2014. He was born in Caracas, Venezuela, on December 27, 1949, to the late Leopoldo Terrero Aguerrevere and Ana Emilia Castillo de Terrero. Leo was a gentle soul who cared deeply for his family and friends. He had a passion for life and lived life to its fullest. He was an experienced commercial pilot for over 30 years flying between the US, South America and the Caribbean. Leo was also a pioneer in the water being one of the first surfers in Venezuela. He was also an avid fisherman and kayaker. Leo is survived by his loving wife, Georgette; son, Christian Furst and his wife, Antoinette; granddaughter, Sofia, who brought him great joy; daughters, Maria Elena and Isabella Terrero; brother, Alejandro “Catire” Terrero;

sisters, Irene Terrero, Cristina “Kiki” Terrero, Alicia Terrero and Ana Maria Terrero; and many nieces and nephews. Memorial Services will be held on Friday, May 9, 2014, at 11am at All Hallows Catholic Church in La Jolla, CA. Please sign the guest book online at www. lajollalight.

Lois Claire Masek 1931 – 2014 Lois Claire Masek (nee McKinnon), 82, died peacefully at home on April 21, 2014, after suffering from cancer. She was born July 16, 1931, in Albany, Calif., to Donald and Dorothy McKinnon, and grew up in Crockett and Napa, Calif. Lois attended Stanford University where she received both bachelor’s and master’s degrees in psychology. At Stanford, she met George Masek (then a graduate student in physics) and they

were married in 1955. In 1965, George took an appointment at UCSD and the family moved to La Jolla, Calif., where she lived for the remainder of her life. Lois was exceptionally generous to family and friends and held a deep interest in politics, world affairs, and was extremely active in civil rights; a founding member of the Seattle chapter of CORE, before it was officially recognized by the National CORE. In later years, she enjoyed traveling, gourmet cooking and reading. Although reserved by nature, her friends fondly remember her great (and wickedly barbed) sense of humor. Lois was preceded in death by her husband, George (who died in 2008), and is survived by her daughter, Jennifer, and son, Jeffrey. Please sign the guest book online at www. lajollalight.

FROM COMMUNITY PLANNING, A4 opportunity to return and request a fourth space if needed. “We want to be flexible,” he said. Trustees Zimmerman and Janie Emerson said the LJCPA should avoid replicating the bustling ambiance of Prospect Street, where several valet operators and sidewalk cafés already operate, and that approving the valet space could lead to similar requests from Girard Avenue businesses. “You don’t need a passenger loading zone,” Emerson said. “One (space) is sufficient for someone to pull in and drop off a car.” Trustee Helen Boyden suggested a Village valet plan be created or a moratorium established on valet parking to deal with the glut of requests. After a motion to deny the passenger loading-valet zone made by Zimmerman (and seconded by Emerson) failed, a motion made by Ahern (and seconded by trustee Jim Ragsdale) to support T&T’s approval of the zone — with an added stipulation that all cars be parked in the Brooks Brothers garage — passed by a vote of 6-4-1. Further LaPlaza delays: Marcelle McAfee with Davlyn Investments, which is developing La Plaza La Jolla, told La Jolla Light after the meeting that the project would not be finished by August, as most recently reported. The project has one potential tenant thus far — the expected restaurant — though a contract has not been signed yet, she said. Davlyn is seeking a waiver to work through the summer construction moratorium. McAfee said the sidewalks in front of La Plaza should be repaved before the moratorium begins (on Memorial Day), and that the most dramatic

During the past year, the CA&P board determined that a mandate defined in a 2002 memorandum of understanding between itself, the City of San Diego and

the California Coastal Commission, which earmarked 50 percent of CA&P funds to establish a remote parking reservoir and shuttle system for employees and visitors, was “not economically sustainable.” During the May 1 meeting, LJCPA trustees voted to support that statement, though stopped short of endorsing CA&P language recommending that the board work with the city and coastal commission to identify “parking mitigation measures that are effective and economically sustainable.” LJCPA trustee Gail Forbes said she fears such language could be interpreted to allow for the installation of parking meters in the Village. There is about $400,000 in the CA&P fund, part of which is designated for discount employee parking passes. The CA&P board solicited public input last year on a variety of ways to use the rest of the money to fulfill its mission. Trustee Bob Collins, who owns the Best Western Inn by the Sea on Fay Avenue, and whose family paid $19,932 in fees to the LJCPA board fund in September of 1984 told La Jolla Light that after 30 years of seeing next to nothing accomplished with the fund — and part of the money lost while held in accounts by the coastal commission and city— he has filed a claim with the city for reimbursement of the fee. Collins said some people were offered the option to pay with a promissory note or had their payment deferred (and then closed shop without paying). “They hung everybody out to dry for a long time,” he said. “I think people have been very considerate not going after the money (so far).”

FROM COMMUNITY PLANNING, A10 ■ Moratorium waiver denied: Though La Jolla Parks and Beaches — a committee advising the city’s Park and Recreation Department — favored approval of a waiver allowing the city to proceed with work on the La Jolla Cove lifeguard tower through the summer construction moratorium period, LJCPA trustees denied the request. City Project Manager Jihad Sleiman said that if crews were allowed to work through summer, the job would be complete by December 2014. If not, it wouldn’t be done until the spring 2015, he said. Several attendees and trustees decried the length of time it took the city to start the job, and how slowly work seems to be progressing. “I’m sick and tired of the city coming to us and asking us to vacate the moratorium because they can’t get something done,” trustee Emerson said, noting the impact summer construction has on revenue generating tourism, as well as the impression it has on visitors. Trustee Ahern suggested the city look into incentives for contractors to finish work on time, or penalties for not completing work in a timely manner. A motion made by Ahern (and seconded by Manno) to approve the waiver failed to


garner the required votes. Trustee Ragsdale’s motion to deny the waiver (seconded by Collins) passed by a vote of 7-3-1. Sleiman said he would like to have completed the project “yesterday,” though dealing with regulatory agencies, various moving parts and “having to come here and plea to you and then getting a ‘no’ vote” lead to project delays. “I don’t think this decision is good for La Jolla and the lifeguards, but, so be it,” he said. ■ Pottery canyon work addressed: Joel Hyatt, a senior planner with the City of San Diego’s Park and Recreation Department Open Space Division, attended the LJCPA meeting to provide information on a project designed to contain hazardous material in an area once used as a trash dump within what is today known as Pottery Canyon (off Torrey Pines Road, just north of La Jolla Parkway). Though last week Jeffry Szymanski, a senior planner with the city’s Development Services Department, told the Light most of the artifacts found when boring into the ground appeared to be La Jollans’ old household trash, Hyatt said during the LJCPA meeting that debris at the site consist mainly of fragmented and fused glass, and lead-glazed ceramics, which may be related to a pottery-making business

operated there between the late 1920s and ’50s by the Rodriguez family — the site’s namesake and the reason it garnered a historic designation in the ’70s. The work, which involves covering the site with a textile tarp and two feet of clean soil, would be paid for and conducted by the California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle), and overseen by the city. Natural vegetation will be planted on top of the site once the job is complete. Though Hyatt said boring tests found lead in several of samples, it was not considered at levels deemed hazardous by the state for non-residential areas, he said. Hyatt said the 1,000 cubic yards of soil to be imported for the project would fill about ten residential swimming pools. Hauling away contaminated soil would have a potential for greater impacts, he said. “Then you’d have (lead) dust in the air,” meeting attendee Mike Costello said, noting that the project overall seemed like “an awful amount of effort for a not very dangerous amount of lead. .... It’s actually a good way to do it, to cover it up. It’s a standard way to do it.” An archaeologist and Native American representative will be on-site during the work to assure proper handling of any remains or artifacts uncovered. Asked by trustee Ahern if there was a

chance of toxins leaching through the “loamy soil” toward the water table or residential areas, Hyatt said he wasn’t entirely certain. Following a concern raised by Don Schmidt that the Museum of Man could be the recipient of archaeological artifacts recovered at the site, Ahern asked if a representative from the La Jolla Historical Society could oversee the work, which Hyatt said is a possibility. Tim Lucas, chair of the La Jolla Shores Association, which advises the city on parks in the Shores area, said he was disappointed that his group was not on the distribution list for a recently released Negative Mitigated Declaration (environmental report) prepared for the project. He questioned why CalRecycle would cap the project if it is not going to be used as parkland or for recreation. ■ Torrey Pines Corridor update: During the meeting, District 1 City Council representative Sherri Lightner reported that a representative from the city would offer an update on the first phase of the long-stalled Torrey Pines Road Corridor Project at the next Traffic and Transportation meeting, 4 p.m. May 22 at La Jolla Rec Center, 615 Prospect St. Details on the second phase of the project will also be shared, Lightner said. ◆

Seniors Helping Seniors introduces two-hour â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;giftâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; cards Seniors Helping Seniors (SHS) is offering Gift of Independence certificates in twohour increments to provide flexible and cost-effective care for seniors who may be in the early stages of needing assistance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is common for seniors to resist accepting assistance from anyone outside of family members and our Gift of Independence certificates offer an excellent opportunity to introduce our seniors-based care-giving services very affordably,â&#x20AC;? said Sue Erskine, SHS coowner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many care-giving companies charge a minimum of four hours for service which can be much more than is initially required.â&#x20AC;? She suggests the certificates be presented

as Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day or Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day gifts to serve as an incentive to utilize SHS services. Erskine said SHS clients find working with other seniors to be more comfortable because they understand and appreciate the challenges of remaining independent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our care providers know from their own experiences how best to assist seniors to manage a variety of non-medical tasks. Additionally, our services often are more cost-effective as they are designed to address each clientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s individual needs versus charging for a standard minimum amount of time.â&#x20AC;?

The services that SHS provides include companion care, light housekeeping, personal care, transportation, overnight supervision, 24-hour care, house maintenance and small repairs and yard work. In most cases the care is provided in the seniorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own home; however, the client may reside with a relative or live in an assisted living community or other group living setting and services can be provide there.

ake no mistake; the recently completed 2014 la Jolla Half is no longer La Jolla’s Half Marathon. After decades of outstanding leadership under Jerry Gottlieb and La Jolla Sports Group, where the community and the athletes always came first, the Carlsbad-based race management hired two years ago has done away with many traditions that made the race unique; in order to conform to their standardized norms. From an athlete’s perspective, while safety improvements have been implemented on the course, the pre- and post-race events amount to a shell of yesteryears: gone are the days of visiting and patronizing La Jolla businesses on registration Saturdays, gone is the beautiful artwork and logo on race T-shirts, gone are the award ceremonies and medals for the top five age groupers and raffle for all. Today, you are being sent to a warehouse in Kearny Mesa for race packet pick-up and get “cheap” plaques in the mail as awards. From a resident standpoint, no longer are you entitled to any respect for your inconvenience if you live alongside the course in the form of race privileges. And the last two years have seen a dearth of local La Jolla sponsors and vendors. The Kiwanis would be better served with a race management closer to La Jolla and “true to the sport,” such as Kathy Loper Events, and they should consider making a substantial donation toward the renovation of the La Jolla Rec Center, their former race central. Please bring the race back home Kiwanis. Robert Fanjas CARMEL VALLEY 26 La Jolla Half Marathon finishes (1989-2014) age-group winner 2011 Age-group runner-up 2014

Letter to all runners in the La Jolla Half Marathon and Shores 5K, and to the community of La Jolla: First of all, thank you all once again for helping to make the Kiwanis Club of La Jolla’s premier fundraising event a success! We saw and heard overwhelming positive support for our race and the smiles on the faces of the runners and their support groups was indicative of pleased participants. Second, the committee has begun work on planning the 2015 Half Marathon and Shores 5K. We value the input of participants and of the public. The time is perfect to help improve the race even more. The La Jolla Half Marathon and Shores 5K remain two of, if not the only, nonprofit races in San Diego County. The more the La Jolla Half Marathon makes the more our nonprofit, the Kiwanis Club of La Jolla, gives to charitable organizations in our community, south of the border, and to world-wide causes. As always, our focus is on improving children’s lives. As you might imagine, a great deal of planning and permitting is required for events of this size. Two years ago we chose In Motion, Inc. of Carlsbad as our race director. They now handle most of the planning and execution of the race and we are very glad to have them involved. This takes so many burdens, physical and mental, off our Kiwanis members and up to 900 community volunteers who help out with this event. It lets us focus on the other, smaller events like the Junior Olympics (scheduled less than a month after the Half Marathon), the 50-plus year old Pancake Breakfast and all the other programs we provide to benefit our Community, including attending our Friday noon lunch meetings

The 33rd annual La Jolla Half Marathon, a fundraiser for the Kiwanis Club of La Jolla, was held April 27 with about 7,000 people registered to run. SCOTT BEARD where we give the money away. With the increase of money being donated by Kiwanis, we require our members to serve on committees to vet the many requests we get in order to find worthy and deserving causes. In other words, with greater benefits come greater burdens. We very much take to heart the comments we receive, both positive and negative. The race follows the same route it always has. The pre-race events were too much for the Rec Center to handle and unfairly displaced all the other activities there. So, we decided to move the pre-race activities to Road Runner Sports in Kearny Mesa. Based on what we are told by La Jolla businesses, they continue to do very well the entire weekend of the races. And, our Kiwanis Club continues to support various programs at the Rec Center, at many venues around La Jolla, and at all of our schools! There is no such thing as standardized norms when it comes to unique races like these. Every aspect is uniquely planned, right down to this year’s T-shirts, which we believe were very attractive. We will carefully consider comments about restoring age group awards. We regret any inconvenience to residents and businesses along the course. We implemented a comprehensive advance notice communication plan that included posting early warning street closure signs, mailing out neighborhood notification postcards, distributing door hangers in the area and making follow-up calls in the weeks leading up to the events. While some participants would like to return to raffle prizes after the event, others like the convenience of not having to wait for prizes to be awarded. We decided to discontinue the Carbo Load Dinner last year. While a few hundred runners came to eat free pasta and salad, the twoday pre-race events made it impractical. Please send us your comments. E-mail any feedback to lajollainfo@ or thoughtfully comment on Yelp or Facebook. We carefully evaluate such comments, both positive and negative, and we are constantly working to make these events the best possible for participants and for our community. See you on the course next year! Don Hodges KIWANIS CLUB OF LA JOLLA HALF MARATHON AND SHORES 5K CHAIRMAN 2014



‘Yield’ rules of the road are indeed confusing I generally agree with John Parker in his guest commentary, May 1, “Classy La Jolla, Class-less Driving.” However, there is one assertion that I find fault with and one omission in his otherwise spot-on commentary. In point 5, Mr. Parker tells pedestrians to yield to vehicles. This is incorrect. Pedestrians have the right of way. They must assert it. Following Mr. Parker’s advice will result in a dance between pedestrians and motorists disrupting the flow of both. In his section on roundabouts, Mr. Parker fails to state that drivers in the roundabout have the right of way and that drivers entering only have to look left, not right. When driving in France, I encountered signage underneath the roundabout sign reminding drivers “You do not have the right of way” — “Vous n’avez pas la priorité.” Perhaps things would flow better through Bird Rock if signage like that were installed.

Happiness is dogs on the beach One of the high points of my day is my early morning stroll on the beach with my two Bedlington terriers. Today it ended with a stern lecture from a lifeguard regarding letting the pups off leash. At the end of his lecture, the lifeguard gave us a warning rather than a ticket, but threatened to return and ticket us for “anything he could think of” should we ever let our dogs run free again. My two pups love to run and play on the beach. It seems so harmless in the early hours when very few people come down to the beach. To deny them that pleasure will break my heart, as I’m sure will be the case with many other dog owners. The dogs make friends, chase each other, and wrestle in the sand. Ocean Beach and Del Mar provide their taxpayers with a dog beach. It’s a shame that La Jolla does not, given the many dog-owner residents. Further, while their dogs play, those residents routinely pick up the garbage left on the beach by those less thoughtful. There’s something wrong with a system that prohibits dogs’ early-hour enjoyment of the beach and yet does nothing to stop the littering. If La Jolla can’t provide its resident dogs with a small part of the beach, perhaps it could permit dogs to run free early in the morning on a designated portion of the beach. Is there any support for such an idea? Nancy Linck LA JOLLA

Straight facts about Virginia Way house

Bike-share kiosks don’t belong on city property Some of the areas that seem to be planned as bike rental locations seem to be in some of the most desirable retail locations in La Jolla. This is like the City of San Diego giving almost free space away for a commercial venture that should under normal circumstances simply rent retail space like most other commercial ventures. They should operate out of stores not on our streets. The proposal would replace at least 12 parking spaces in La Jolla, which as everyone knows, are really needed for vehicle parking. The city probably collects more revenue from the parking tickets issued within these spaces for violations than will be made by using the spaces for bike-sharing. If we are to have bike rentals, there is no reason that they should be located in prime space as people who would rent bikes can and would also walk a few blocks in order to get to bike rental locations. I also believe that this plan interferes with some current businesses that have retail locations and rent bikes as a part of what they do. I am a resident of La Jolla and have no personal commercial interest in La Jolla. The accident rate will probably increase, as inexperienced bike riders may not obey proper safety and legal riding procedures. ◆ Barry Levine LA JOLLA

I’ve lived in La Jolla and enjoyed the La Jolla Light community newspaper for years. Since the Light is a source of local happenings, as well as a source for local history, I feel I should correct an article published April 24, 2014. I need to correct Laura DuCharme Conboy on her statement that the old house at 1419 Virginia Way originally had a slate roof. My information comes from Richard Harvey, an early resident and La Jolla painting contractor. He was the contractor who did the original paint job on the house at 1419 when it was new. After we purchased the house in the 1960s, Mr. Harvey told me that the extra long shingles, placed in an irregular pattern were of cedar, and that they were the original shingles. He had been maintaining them since they were put on. He used a mixture that contained a lot of oil and I’m not sure what else. I consulted Mr. Harvey regarding repainting the house, and he told me about the interesting architect who designed it. The architect was very specific regarding the patterning/placing of the shingles, and the red color. He was very specific regarding the color of the exterior wood trim, also, and Mr. Harvey recalled mixing the paint colors by hand until he mixed the color that the architect wanted (an off-key ochre and a green that leaned toward dusty viridian). Later, when I felt that the cedar roof (wood, with many years of oil saturation) was a potential fire hazard, I searched until I could find a roofing company that could do the long, irregular roof pattern as close to the original as possible, and the off red color was as close as I could find in a fire resistant roofing material. I tried to keep with the spirit of the architect, because the old house was designed with such grace and beauty. It had a

long-ago era charm. Since we sold it in the 1990s, the exterior wood trim paint scheme has been changed, and, recently, it seems, the lovely interior has been gutted. It was a beautiful old house and it’s sad to see a thing of beauty lost. Historian Scott Moomjia is correct, however. The architect, according to what Mr. Harvey told me, was not well known in San Diego, and none of us who lived in the house were famous. Still, it seems a shame to destroy beauty.

BY ED PIPER Phillip Lucas, The Bishop’s School assistant track coach in charge of jumpers, tries to impress one important thing on his young athletes: “It’s not how you start; it’s how you finish.” His experience is that jumpers who are willing to leave behind their own preconceived notions and apply their coach’s instruction will progress faster. The approach — literally — has already paid off for Maclean Sammons, a sophomore long jumper for the Knights. Early in the season, she was running up to the launch mark off-stride and off-tempo. Her confidence was wobbly. She was struggling to put her mechanics together. Now, most recently, she jumped a creditable 13 feet, 11 inches for second place in the Coastal League Tri-Meet that Bishop’s entered with La Jolla Country Day and Francis Parker schools at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista. “Her mark was off. She was talking discouragement to me,” recalled Lucas. “The next week I worked with her. She listened. She was attentive. That made a big difference, because in her next meet you saw a difference and you kept seeing big

differences. And it was like ‘Wow.’ ” Lucas, a jumper himself, becomes pretty animated as he talks about the unique personality and characteristics of each of his student-athletes, and how he approaches each one differently. He works on a staff of assistants that coach in each specialty under head coach Rodney Jones — jumps, throws, sprints, distance. Another athlete Lucas is looking for big things from is newcomer Reed WesterEbbinghaus, a high jumper. The freshman is tall and lanky, with the classic build for a high jumper. Lucas talks about the advantage tall high jumpers have because they are able to get their center of gravity higher as they approach the pit to gather and explode in a leap toward the bar. Reed extends off his left foot, running up to the bar from the right side. He cleared five feet in the meet against LJCD and Parker for fourth place. ◆ ■ RESULTS: See full results from The Bishop’s School and La Jolla Country Day School track meet at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, April 23 at and click on “Sports” or visit


SPORTS SHORTS: LA JOLLA HIGH SCHOOL BY ED PIPER ■ La Jolla High School varsity girls basketball Head Coach David Westhem announced that his assistant coach this past season, Johnnie Horne, will be the new head coach of the Vikings for 2014-15. Westhem, in his second year at the helm, guided the Vikings to the Division III CIF Finals game. Westhem said he would remain on staff as assistant coach. His daughters, Ashley and Sierra Westhem, played for him at LJHS. The announcement was made at the team’s year-end awards banquet at the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club on May 2. Westhem also revealed that LJHS, as a result of its successful season (it went 19-12 and captured the Western League title), has been moved up to Division II beginning in 2014-15. ■ Groundbreaking for the new football field playing surface will take place in October, according to LJHS sources. Permanent visitor stands, a new building for coaches’ offices, and a new

tennis pavilion are included in the plans. The Vikings football team will complete its home games during the fall season, but at season’s end, the entire stadium will be offlimits as construction takes place for the next 18 months. The football team will have to play its entire 2015 season via away games at other schools. Physical education classes will be held in the gym and other locations during the 18 months of construction. According to athletic director Paula Conway, construction could not begin immediately after the graduation ceremony on the field in mid-June because of the way contracts are written.

■ Record-holding three-point specialist, Sophia Sowers, will be recognized May 13 at the San Diego Unified School District’s board meeting for achieving the highest grade-point average among girl basketball players in the district this year. Sowers will be saluted as part of a kudos to the entire team, according to Coach Westhem. ■ Seniors Sierra Westhem and Sophia Sowers were named members of the NorthSouth basketball all-stars for the recent game held at Francis Parker School. Coach Westhem quoted Bishop’s Coach Marlon Wells as saying the two players were the first LJHS girls ever named to the North-South all-star squads.

■ Madeleine Gates, a 6-2 center and Vikings sophomore, was named First Team All-Western League. Teammate Sierra Westhem was named Second Team AllWestern League for 2013-14. ■ Senior Sophia Sowers, who plans to attend Whitworth College in Washington in the fall, was named MVP of the girls basketball team for 2013-14 at its awards banquet May 2.



■ Shortstop Brett Volger set a Vikings’ baseball record for most games started in a career by registering his 104th start in a game at Mission Bay High School April 25. With every subsequent game in which he starts, he sets a new record. A May 2 win over Point Loma High upped the record to 106 starts in a career. Volger began his freshman season in 2011 playing at second base. A short time later, coach Gary Frank swapped him with shortstop Tyson Youngs. Ever since then, he has been the Vikings’ starting shortstop. ◆

Paws for a Cause

Steve Haskins is La Jolla’s new town council chief


teve Haskins was born and raised in La Jolla. He attended Bird Rock Elementary and Stella Maris Academy and graduated from La Jolla High in 1977. As a 16-year-old, he joined the La Jolla Town Council’s Land Use Committee to become the youngest person ever elected as a trustee of the Town Council. Steve graduated from UCSD in 1985, attended French School in Antibes, France, and went on to obtain his Steve Haskins law degree from UC Hastings in San Francisco in 1989. He has worked as a real estate and business attorney for the past 25 years. In 1992, while living in Imperial Beach, he was elected as a city councilmember and was deputy mayor in 1995, also serving on the board of the Metropolitan Transit Authority. Moving back to La Jolla in 2001, he was again elected a trustee of the Town Council, also serving several terms as its treasurer. He will be sworn in as new Town Council president, succeeding Cindy Greatrex on May 8. Steve is single with a daughter, Zoe, age 22. He is an active partner in Deodoro Cellars Winery in Paso Robles, California.

What brought you to La Jolla? I was born here so I guess you could say a stork! What might you add, subtract or improve in the area? Something needs to be done about the Torrey Pines Road backups so I would say some way to fix that problem without turning Torrey Pines Road into an eight lane freeway.


Michael Levinsky gives some love and attention to Jake, who he walks three times a week for Paws for a Cause, a new dog-walking service that hires cancer patients. ASHLEY MACKIN

Dog walking service to benefit cancer patients begins in La Jolla BY ASHLEY MACKIN fter more than four years of treatment at UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center for Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL), Michael Levinsky of Pacific Beach said he gained deep insight into what life is like for cancer patients. For many people, immune systems are compromised and finances falter. “I wanted to find a way to get cancer patients, like myself, out and making money,” Levinsky said, acknowledging that many patients in recovery cannot (or choose not) to return to a conventional office environment, where germs are rampant. Feeling stronger this year, he decided to start Paws for a Cause, a service that links cancer patients with people who


will pay to have their dogs walked for a fee. “I needed something to do. I’ve been an entrepreneur my whole life and wondered what I could do next,” he said, noting that his experience includes the development of dental products and selling pharmaceuticals. “What I wanted to do is give back to other cancer patients and be a patient advocate.” Because of his CLL, Levinsky’s immune system will always be “next to zero,” he said. Having a source of income that minimizes his chance of getting sick is crucial. During his treatment, he learned that dogs do not transmit germs the same way humans do, and most diseases do not cross species, making dogs safer

Supermarket Tiny Terrors


there was a single patron in there who didn’t fantasize grabbing the 5-year-old by the shoulders and yelling “LEAVE HER ALONE!” followed by leaning into the face of the little girl and bellowing, “AND YOU! SHUT THE F UP!” However, if anyone should cut this woman some slack, it should be me. I remember only too well what a holy terror my older son was in a supermarket. Rory loved the supermarket. So many possibilities! So little time! Even as a toddler, Rory somehow managed to maneuver a half-gallon glass container of apple juice over the edge of the cart, thrilling at the CRASH! SPLOOSH! it made as glass and apple juice went everywhere. When Henry was born, having two kids in the cart didn’t leave a whole lot of room for groceries. Like the 5-year-old at Easter, Rory lost no opportunities to harass Henry, especially delighting in creating landslides of canned goods that

La Jolla Cultural Partners

he day before Easter, I was at the supermarket, which was crowded with ham and chocolate bunny shoppers. Among the other customers was a mom who had a 3-year-old girl in the cart’s seat and a 5-year-old boy riding in the basket. Every 10 seconds or so, the boy reached up and poked his sister in the back causing her to emit a soul-piercing shriek at the top of her considerable lungs. Mom, who was presumably suffering from adaptive catatonia, or alternatively had just undergone an elective lobotomy, never said a single word. Dead-faced, she plodded on. Every time that little girl shrieked, you could feel the entire market suffer a collective seizure. If she were doing that at home too, no wonder mom went for the lobotomy. The older brother, meanwhile, snickered deliciously every time his sister sent nerve-shattering 100-decibel shock waves through the store. I don’t think

relegating us to weeks of tomato sauceinspired menus. When he was 9, I couldn’t help but notice one day that everyone in the market was smiling at me. I thought, “Why have I never noticed what a friendly place this is!” I smiled back. I subsequently discovered — but not nearly soon enough — that Rory had stuck a bunch of “100 percent real beef” stickers from hamburger packages on my rear. The irony, of course, was that BK (Before Kids) I’d always had these lovely fantasies about taking my children to the supermarket, how I’d teach them about nutrition as I subtly guided them to choose the healthier breakfast cereals, how I’d let them pick between two vegetables for dinner, how they’d help load up the cart with cans of soup on special and we’d get cupcakes as treats with the savings, an early education in economics. It would be so much fun! But like the mom at Easter pushing the cart with Lungs and the Mini Marquis de Sade, my mantra changed: Just get the damn food in the cart and get out of there. Preferably before everyone hates you. ◆


Let Inga Tell You

would hopefully crush Henry to death in his little infant seat and return us to what Rory considered the halcyon days of a single child family. One day, Rory just wouldn’t stop tormenting Henry. There’s not a whole lot of time-out opportunities in a grocery cart. Fed up, I finally grabbed him, whacked him once on his little tush and said, “I believe I said LEAVE HIM ALONE.” A 60-ish woman in the produce aisle saw this and went berserk, insisting on following me around the store proclaiming loudly, “Did you see what the woman did? She STRUCK her child! That woman has no business being a mother! Someone should take those kids away from her!” At that moment, I would have been happy to hand her Rory with the written proviso that she’d never bring him back, as I saw a definite Ransom of Red Chief plot in this scenario. I couldn’t get out of there fast enough. Or maybe the catatonic mom had the right idea, even if it was excruciating for the rest of us. Rory didn’t stop his reign of retail terror on supermarket employees and his mother, however. At 7, he managed to bury Henry in a six-foot floor display of stuffing mix. At 8, he poked holes in an entire display of pricey vine-ripened tomatoes with a caramel apple stick,

Asian Mahi Salad

No duds with the suds at La Jolla Brewing Co. BY KELLEY CARLSON he new La Jolla Brewing Co. has been generating buzz since opening at the start of the year. Recently noted by Zagat on its “8 Hottest New Restaurants” list, LJBC fills a void in the La Jolla dining scene: craft beers and bites in a relaxed setting that includes fire pits and communal tables. “We’re looking to be a neighborhood bar,” said Leigh Gibson, a partner in the restaurant. Yet unlike many neighborhood bars, this one makes its own beers on site, all named after local icons. The list includes the Neptune’s Nitro golden ale, the lightest of the in-house brews in terms of color and hopping rate; Glider Port Pale Ale, which has a medium malt body; the Bird Rock Brown Ale, an American/English hybrid; Sunny Jim’s IPA, an “evolving combination of malts and hops”; the dry, Irish-style Cove Side Stout; and the Big Time Stout, with bittersweet chocolate notes. LJBC offers other brands, too, with more than 20 craft brews on tap, along with bottled and gluten-free varieties. Patrons don’t have to order a cold pint to get a taste of the in-house suds — LJBC’s beers are incorporated into many of the dishes. For example, one of the restaurant’s bestsellers, the Mussels, are steamed in a broth of LJBC’s Pale Ale, caramelized onions, garlic, tomatoes and chorizo. The appetizer comes with crostinis to soak up the juices.

Crispy wonton wrappers are stuffed with duck confit, beer-braised onions and herb cream cheese, which can be dunked in sweet chili and peanut sauces. There are also the Fish Strips, which consist of IPA-battered mahi citrus aioli and orange vodka cocktail sauce. While beer is a common ingredient, it isn’t the sole focus of the restaurant. Diners will find healthy selections such as the Asian Mahi Salad with mixed field greens, daikon radishes, cucumbers, carrots, red onions, grilled fish filets with a ponzu sauce glaze and ginger soy vinaigrette. There are also flatbreads such as the El Torero, topped with grilled hangar steak, beer-braised onions and a gorgonzola cream sauce — almost like a Philly cheesesteak with an added bonus of

Mussels are steamed in a broth of LJBC’s Pale Ale, caramelized onions, garlic, tomatoes and chorizo. blackberries; and “sandos” that range from the Cajun Turkey Club to the Hangar Steak.

Guests can even find sweets at this brewhouse, from the Banana Wontons with salted beer caramel sauce and peanut butter snow; to the Stout Float, made with the in-house beer and vanilla bean ice cream. A brunch menu is available on weekends.

Four evening lectures to explore state of ‘art’


rt history lecturer Derrick Cartwright, Ph.D. will host a fourpart series to explore, “What’s wrong with this picture? Some problems of art in our time,” 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays, May 13, 20, 27 and June 3 at Athenaeum Music & Arts Library, 1008 Wall St. The point of these lectures is not to bemoan our predicaments or to offer negative judgments; rather it will be to identify more clearly the prevailing creative conditions of our contemporary moment and ask, “How did our art Derrick Cartwright world get to be this way?” ■ May 13: “What’s Wrong with This Picture?” The first lecture will tackle a long history of artists who have deliberately refused to be bound by traditional aesthetic categories. It will focus on ways their work has contributed to new ways of seeing the world.

■ May 20: “Tulipmania, Then and Now,” will consider lessons to be gained by studying ebullient markets for art as well as the historical ramifications of those “hot” markets for collectors (both public and private). ■ May 27: “The Problem with Participation,” will inspect the strategies employed by artists and by institutions to deepen audience engagement and just what this means for our everyday encounters with objects. ■ June 3: “What Happens in Detroit,” looks at the conditions of art communities under financial duress and, while it hopes for the best, offers a cautionary outlook for future growth of museums. — Tickets for the four-part series are $50 members/$70 non-members; individual lectures: $14 members/$19 non-members at (858) 454-5872. lectures ◆

Cooking class & dinner




Paella-a-Go-Go My family’s favorite one-pot meal is Spain’s signature paella, an extravaganza of assorted treasures from the land and sea, rice and golden saffron. Alas, this version is a simple one in keeping with the spirit of curtailing kitchen time, but is still scrumptious and divine. (Serves 6)

■ Ingredients: • 2 cups organic short grain rice • 2 cups boiling water • 1 pound each jumbo shrimp and deep-sea scallops • 3 spicy Italian sausages (I prefer chicken), sliced in 1-inch coins • 1 lobster tail, steamed, cut in bite-size chunks (optional) • 1 pound chicken breast, cut in bite-size pieces • 4 tablespoons virgin olive oil • 3 tablespoons tomato sauce • 1 sweet onion, diced • 2 garlic cloves, minced • 1 green pepper, diced • 1/2 teaspoon oregano • 1/2 teaspoon saffron • 1 cup frozen peas, defrosted • Salt and pepper to taste • Lemon wedges

■ Method: In a paella pan or large covered skillet, heat half the oil on medium; add the chicken and garlic, season with pepper, salt and oregano. Cook until the chicken is golden brown. Add the remaining oil, onion, sausage, green pepper. Cook for 10 minutes. Add the tomato sauce and rice; cook for 5 minutes. Add the shrimp, scallops, saffron and boiling water. Cover and simmer for about 20 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed. Blend in the lobster and make a well in the center for the peas. Cover and cook another 5 minutes. Garnish with lemon wedges.

Short cuts in the kitchen


ere are tips for transitioning into the spring season with energyboosting foods and ways to shorten time spent in the kitchen.

Exhilarating Eats ■ A dose of bittersweet chocolate (with cocoa content over 70 percent) contains 300 substances, including anandamide, which mocks marijuana’s mellow effect on the noggin for a blissful buzz. ■ If you like heat, chiles or hot peppers containing capsaicin will hot-wire the brain to release endorphins and energize. Chips and salsa, anyone? ■ Bananas are a tropical treat packed with potassium and magnesium to energize the brain and brawn. ■ A steamy infusion of herbal tea always seems to electrify the soul. Peppermint, rosehips and hibiscus teas are cups of uppers, whilst black and green tea brews provide a caffeine lift. Prep School Carve out an hour or so each week for kitchen prep, including chopping onions, celery and carrots, and popping in the freezer for future use. Wash and dry all

produce promptly upon your return from the market, and store in airtight containers. Prepare blends with assorted lettuces, chopped cucumber, cauliflower and broccoli florets and store in zip bags for instant salads. Boil a half-dozen eggs, peel and have them on call. Spring soups and pasta dishes can be prepared and frozen for weeks, ready to heat and eat at a moment’s notice. Store bought, organic rotisserie chicken is a multi-tasking lifesaver for creating numerous meals from sandwiches and stir-fries to burritos and chopped salads. Set It and Forget It After prepping your meats and veggies, the Crock-Pot runs the show. Everything from chicken gumbos, cacciatores and vegetarian curries to lamb stews and turkey chilis can be started in the morning, warm and ready hours later upon your return. The Cadillac CrockPots have non-stick removable stoneware inserts for attractive table service, which also saves on the cleanup. ◆ — For additional recipes, e-mail


Dogs need exercise and so do cancer patients. This is a way someone could help a cancer patient get back on their feet.

times a week, but if her schedule gets busy, she knows she can call him for an additional, impromptu visit. “He’s been absolutely excellent,” she said. “I hope he can get the support needed to really get this going.” ◆

companions for those with diminished immune systems than people. “If someone needs to hire a dog walker (because they work long hours or are recuperating from an accident or a surgery) why not hire a cancer patient?” he joked. Clients can select the frequency they’d like their dogs walked — from a one-time 30-minute walk to scheduled weekly walks and vacation services — and the payment goes to the walkers for their bills and medical expenses. Client and attorney Marissa Lyftogt of San Diego said, in the midst of praise over Levinsky’s professional conduct, “I’d be (having someone walk my dog) anyway, but the fact that Paws for Cause is doing more and giving someone a job they might not be able to have, makes me feel so good.” She said she learned about Paws for a Cause through a flier, and was already looking into hiring a dog walker, but was intrigued by Levinsky’s business model. “It’s a unique concept I haven’t seen

Situational Leadership: There’s No One-Size-Fits All Approach to Management Over the last 20 years, there have been many articles written on the subject of how to best organize, direct and manage employees. In fact, the word “manage” itself has undergone a lot of criticism because it seems to imply overseeing employees without necessarily getting involved in the process. Other approaches to

management have, therefore, been suggested such as empowering, mentoring, coaching, and directing. The fact of the matter is that when it comes to best practices for leading employees it is not a case of either/or; it’s an all of the above approach. There is a time to empower, a time to mentor, a time to coach, and a time to direct. This is referred to as Situational Leadership. If employees are highly motivated and highly skilled, managers can empower them. Instead of constantly looking over the shoulders of employees, especially those who are doing a great job already, managers can give them opportunities to grow on their own and lead others. For example, you can set up a plan for growth and reward them as they advance. Rewards don’t necessarily need to be financial— even a “thank you” goes a long way. Try to budget resources toward management and

personal development training. And allow them to make some mistakes along the way. As Henry Ford said, “Failure is only the opportunity to begin again more intelligently.” If employees are highly skilled but have low motivation, managers should act as mentors. One of the main reasons employees lose motivation is that they don’t understand the connection between what they are doing and why they are doing it. A mentor must, therefore, help employees understand the big picture. One of the best motivators is acknowledging employees’ accomplishments once they’ve achieved what you have asked. If employees are highly motivated but have low skills, managers can coach them. Coaching is a way to provide any on-the-job training employees need in order to complete their tasks effectively. It’s important, first of all, to find out what employees already know. Once you have

established their knowledge base, you must not only present the information to them; you must demonstrate it. To ensure they understand, find a way to evaluate their learning and provide feedback accordingly. Then, periodically make sure the employees are applying their newfound knowledge and skills to their tasks. And don’t forget to acknowledge their successes. If employees have low motivation and low skills, you direct them until you can build their skills and motivation. Directing employees requires combing both coaching and mentoring techniques. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to management. Companies are comprised of individuals with varying skill sets and levels of motivation. To learn how to embody a management style to optimize the performance of all your employees, contact me at david@ or call (949) 887-4721.
