Planned cell tower at Cliffridge Park draws parents’ ire By Ashley MAckin Parents of students at Torrey Pines Elementary School turned out en masse to the May 14 La Jolla Shores Association (LJSA) meeting to state their opposition to an AT&T cell tower proposed for Cliffridge Park. Because the school administration scheduled an additional meeting to discuss the tower, no further action was taken on the issue. AT&T Acquisition Consultant Debra DePratti Gardner was at the meeting to explain that the communications company proposes to build a 30-foot faux eucalyptus tree (to disguise the tower) at the far end of the park’s baseball field beyond the yellow foul line pole. The “tree” will have 12 antennas and a 240-square-foot equipment enclosure on the ice-plant area

below the field. “Fifteen years ago, people used their cell phones just for phone calls. Now people use their phones to watch television, so cell phone companies are scrambling trying to get additional bandwidth to (meet) their user’s needs,” she said. “Presently AT&T has a gigantic hole (in coverage) all along Torrey Pines Road and east of Cliffridge Park,” necessitating the additional cell tower, said DeParatti Gardner noting that each antenna would operate at approximately 30 watts and house a separate technology, such as voice data and LTE wireless capability. Still, parents in attendance expressed concerns

By Ashley MAckin f you consider our population over the last 20 years, it has doubled, in terms of beach-goers,” said San Diego Lifeguard Captain Nick Lerma. “Citywide, there were approximately 11 million people going to the beach 15 years ago, and last year it was around 23 or 24 million. That changes community expectation of what a lifeguard is and what a lifeguard does.” When San Diego established a lifeguard service in 1918, there were few lifeguards, and the ones that were there typically served on a seasonal basis. However, with more people at the beach, more lifeguards were needed and when lifeguard towers were being built across the county, La Jolla Cove got one. “A lot of things can happen and they happen very quickly in La Jolla, particularly at the Cove … you have a huge array of things going on and things you are watching,” Lerma said.

Sardine shortage cause of sea lion deaths By Ashley MAckin The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) released preliminary findings as to the cause of the unusual sea lion pup mortality event that began in January 2013 — a scarcity of sardines. During the event, a higher than usual number of California sea lion pups were found emaciated, dehydrated and/or underweight for their age and in need of rescue and rehabilitation. The event is still under investigation. Marine Mammal Health and Stranding Response Coordinator Sarah Wilkin reported: “A likely contributor to the large number of stranded, malnourished pups was a change in the availability of sea lion prey or forage — especially sardines, a high value food source for nursing mothers.” see seA lion DeAThs, A19

Goodbye, Mrs. Hilbert!

La Jolla preschool educator retires after 34 years By Ashley MAckin etty Hilbert, La Jolla Presbyterian Church Preschool Director, never thought she would be a teacher. But after 34 years as a teacher-turned-director, she will retire with full honors from the community, as the guest of an open house, 2-4 p.m. Saturday, May 31 at 7715 Draper Ave. “When I was in college, I was going into radio. I thought radio was the greatest thing ever,” she said of her studies at Baylor University. “But my last two years in college, it seemed like everyone I knew was majoring in education and I was majoring in speech. My roommates were talking about the jobs they were going to have and I remember thinking, I might not get a job, so I thought I might teach speech, and I got a degree in education.” She went on to teach third grade for six years. “I loved teaching third grade … I thought I couldn’t handle the younger ones,” she said with a laugh. She took a break from teaching, believing she would never return to the classroom, when she married her husband Jim, and had two children, Anne and Dean, now grown. “When my children were in junior high and high school, one of the teachers here was leaving, and they put an ad out saying

the children she taught long ago are now adults and sending their children to the La Jolla Presbyterian Preschool. “It’s been a great experience and a great life,” she said, admitting that leaving will be “bittersweet.” She plans to enjoy her retirement with her husband, visiting grandchildren and traveling.

When the director announced she was leaving, Hilbert was offered the position, which she initially declined. “But they said (I had to) and that was 24 years ago,” she said. She’s noticed that over the last few years,


they needed a teacher,” she reminisced. “I thought I could come in and help out, but the director became one of my best friends, so I stayed and taught for about nine-and-ahalf years.”

Hilbert said she hopes parents understand the role of preschool. “It is the bridge between leaving mom and dad, and getting to kindergarten,” she said. “We hope that by the time children enter kindergarten, they are not scared to go into a classroom by themselves, they can say goodbye to mom and dad at the door, and they can feel a little more independent and talk to an adult.” Hilbert said preschool also offers children a chance to learn by playing in a nonacademic setting. “Parents sometimes say to me, ‘all he does is play,’ and that’s true. Go into a preschool room and look around; you’ll see 20 things right away that kids will learn from by looking at or touching.” Preschool is also the place where children learn to interact with others, use their words instead of hitting, and learn structure.

Children don’t know they are learning, but they are — and at a fast rate. “Some schools put computers in their preschools, but we are of the few that do not. There are skills they need to know at this age, and using a computer is not one of them. They can do that later.” Reminding parents that a preschooler’s brain, developmentally, has been the same since time started, she said one of the reasons the school doesn’t teach younger children to read is that at this stage of development their eyes cannot track words on a page — or a screen. “Technology has been the thing that has changed preschool the most. When the technology comes, some believe it can change everything about the way a child thinks. Our philosophy is that a child is still a child, and all the children around the world are still developing the same way,” she said. La Jolla Presbyterian Rev. Mike Sedgwick said Hilbert leaves a terrific legacy at the school. “One of the things that is always amazing to me is when I come into contact with adults who say, ‘I had Betty as a teacher’ or ‘My kid, who is now in college, had Betty as a director.’ She’s had such a huge impact on so many families from this community.

“I think she’ll be most remembered for how much she cared for and loved the children of La Jolla. It’s been outstanding to see. She’ll be dearly missed by the staff and pastors here and we are so appreciative of all that she gave to this community and this church.” Sedgwick said filling Hilbert’s shoes will be “a tall task” for incoming director, Barbara Etienne of Carlsbad, though he said he is excited for her arrival. A former child development professor at MiraCosta College, Etienne has also had experience designing and starting preschools. u

During certain times of day, during certain months, the angle of the glass and the type of glass used on the structure lead to “ghost images” of people appearing to be on one side of the beach when they are actually at another, and glare inhibits the guards’ ability to see. Cetin also requested a waiver to the summer construction moratorium be granted so repairs could take place immediately. She told LJSA board members the city hired a contractor independent of the one hired to do the original work, who recommended the glass be replaced and re-angled. If construction starts on the proposed May 27 date, after Memorial Day weekend, contractors say they are confident the work can be finished by the end of June. During troublesome times, lifeguards could rely on “redundant coverage,” where guards at the nearby towers, mainly Tower 32, would also observe the beach

and water, and cross check what lifeguards at the main tower see. Lifeguards will raise the height of Tower 32 to improve visibility to ensure the beach is thoroughly monitored during the Shores tower repair project. Fixing the glass issues involves installing a steel plate that will frame the new glass panels without obstructing the view. Once the plate is installed, another set of measurements will be taken and the panels will be fitted to those measurements. Cetin said a glass specialist sub-contractor would work with the contractors, under the observation of third-party inspectors and resident engineers. She also reported there would be some “down time,” when crews would not be

Caring collaboration


any people in our community grieved the loss of San Diego Hospice, which ceased operations in February. It was a large and vital center for the treatment and care of terminally ill patients. But San Diego Hospice served other critical needs as well. It hosted, for example, the largest training program in the country for the extraordinary men and women who seek to become palliative medicine clinicians, doctors specialized in relieving and preventing the suffering of patients. The hospice trained as many as 12 palliative medicine clinicians each year, an astounding 5 percent of the national total. It was the only program of its type in San Diego. Part of palliative care is hospice care, but palliative medicine clinicians also use their holistic and team approach to support patients undergoing curative therapies. This enables patients to better tolerate their treatments and to achieve better outcomes while maintaining independence and control. Unlike hospice, people do not have to

choose between comfort and cure to receive this care. While this care is not limited to cancer patients, as an oncologist I see these benefits when my patients visit the Doris Howell Palliative Consultation Service at UC San Diego. The service is named after Dr. Doris Howell, a beloved doctor in San Diego who launched palliative and hospice care in in our community. Her picture is prominently displayed on the second floor of the UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center. The palliative care service helps my patients who have issues like pain, shortness of breath or nausea. Treating these symptoms allows patients to better tolerate necessary chemotherapy, radiation therapy or surgery. Similarly, cardiologists believe palliative care helps heart failure patients tolerate needed therapies. This is true for many other specialties as well. In addition, integration of palliative care helps patients and families to better handle the diverse stresses of serious illness. UC San Diego and Scripps Health have long recognized the value of this care.


Thomas Compton Mitchell 1945 – 2014

Thomas Mitchell, longtime resident of La Jolla, died on May 13, 2014, of natural causes. He was 68 years old. Tom was born on November 7, 1945, in McMinnville, Oregon. He was raised in La Jolla and lived most of his adult life here. He worked as a funeral director in

San Diego and, upon his retirement, moved to Missoula, Montana, where he spent the last three years of his life. Tom loved to travel and he especially enjoyed the beauty of the natural world. Thomas was predeceased by his parents, Edward Mitchell, M.D. and Mary D. Mitchell, also of La Jolla. He is survived by his sisters, Paula and Mary. He will be remembered by his family and the many friends who loved him for his kindness, generosity and sense of humor. A graveside memorial service will be held Tuesday, May 27, 2014, at 1:00 p.m. at El Camino Memorial Park. Arrangements under the care of Featheringill Mortuary, 619-583-9511.

They have been partners in the San Diego Hospice training program for many years. Both organizations are committed to bringing back this important program to help address the current and projected shortages of palliative medicine clinicians, locally and nationally. Gary Buckholz, M.D. led the training program at San Diego Hospice and is now at UC San Diego, where he is an associate clinical professor at Moores Cancer Center and part of the Doris Howell Palliative Consultation Service in La Jolla and Hillcrest. He is working with Dr. Holly Yang at Scripps Health, as well as leaders of both organizations, to rebuild a world-class palliative care training program. In this, he has the unqualified backing of Doris Howell, who recently told me “I believe deeply that cooperation and collaboration of like-believers can greatly enhance the contribution to the community at large. “Historically collaboration has been an extremely important part of building palliative care in the community. It’s much needed and I’m thrilled that this effort will continue and the training program will be revived.” Buckholz believes such collaboration creates the opportunity to rebuild a training program second to none. “Scripps Health has started a hospice program and plans to re-open the hospice inpatient facility in Hillcrest. Trainees will have the opportunity to work with

nationally recognized faculty from both UC San Diego and Scripps in inpatient, outpatient and homecare settings. More importantly, patients will have better access to palliative care.” Historically the federal government via Medicare has funded doctor-training programs. The new program, however, will not receive government funds because it is a relatively new specialty, officially recognized just eight years ago. It and other programs like it depend upon philanthropy to succeed. In the past, the program has benefited from generous support from Audrey Geisel, Daniel and Violet McKinney, Richard and Kaye Woltman, the Donald C. and Elizabeth M. Dickinson Foundation, and the Kenneth T. and Eileen L. Norris Foundation, among many others. Just as we all need basic and specialized medical assistance when we are hurt, sick or ailing, there is a need for the benefits of palliative treatment offered by this collaboration. When you or a loved one is confronting serious illness, you want — and deserve — the best care possible. That includes integrated palliative care. u — Scott M.

La Plaza moving toward possible January 2015 opening, ‘La JollaOpoly’ bidding war begins La Jolla Village Merchants Association

Construction on La Plaza La Jolla shopping complex at Wall Street and Girard avenue appears to be picking up again. Photos by Pat sherman complex closed there in 2009. “We’re really very patient,” Williams said. “We have a very specific goal in mind. It may take us a little longer to get there but ultimately the payoff for everybody (will be greater). … “We could have built the building probably twice over by now if we had accepted anything and just wanted to (finish), but that’s not what we’re going for,” he added. “We’re trying to do something


really unique, and much more interesting.” Williams said recent delays in Dempsey Construction’s remodel of the roughly 17,000-square-foot, three-level building are due to challenges with its infrastructure. “The amount of additional infrastructure type improvements that we ran into was, even for us, who’ve done a lot of construction, surprising,” he said. “This project, as you know, has had a lot of problems in years past, (including) accessibility issues.”


By Pat Sherman During the La Jolla Village Merchants Association’s (LJVMA) May 14 meeting at the Cuvier Club, the group received an update on the La Plaza La Jolla shopping complex construction, discussed a program to use volunteers to clean the streets of La Jolla and learned about several new businesses that have opened in the Village (see photos). Responding to questions about the La Plaza La Jolla boutique shopping complex being developed at the corner of Wall Street and Girard Avenue, Jon Williams, CEO of Davlyn Investments — which purchased the property at auction in 2012 — said none of La Plaza’s tenants would likely open before January 2015, at the earliest (the project was originally slated to open in December of 2013). The building was left mostly vacant after Jack’s La Jolla restaurant and nightclub

Asked by LJVMA board Vice President Mark Krasner how many tenants have been secured, Williams said Davlyn is in “various stages of commitments for about two-thirds (to) half of the building.” “We have a number of stores that want to open by Oct. 15 (but) we haven’t decided if that’s a good idea or not,” Williams said. “The issue is whether or not it’s wise to have significant improvements going on in half of the building while (another) half is open.” Williams declined to state which retailers have confirmed to lease space in La Plaza. “Timing is extremely important, as you know,” he said. “You don’t want to announce too early. “It’s not a matter of if, but when we open … and who we open with,” he added. Williams did say a third-level restaurant tenant is eager to announce their involvement. “I would be surprised if, within a month, they haven’t already announced,” he said. LJVMA board members voted to write a letter to the City of San Diego recommending that the city waive its usual moratorium on summertime construction for La Plaza, so that work on the project can continue posthaste. A white wood partition around the site will remain up until the end of construction,

In other LJVMA news n Grant money approved: LJVMA Executive Director Sheila Fortune announced that the LJVMA will receive $46,900 in Economic Development and Tourism Support (EDTS) grant funding from the city for fiscal year 2014-2015 (the merchants group applied for $70,000). The money will be distributed to the organization on a quarterly basis. n Bike-sharing vigilance: Fortune noted that the city’s new bike-sharing program proposes 14 rental kiosks in La Jolla that will mostly be located on sidewalks or within street parking spaces. “Keep in mind that the bike-sharing programs, the car-sharing program and the electric-vehicle program are all coming in at the same time,” Fortune said. “You need to make sure that you stay educated and aware of where those are going … so they all work together without overwhelming the Village or taking away a lot of space.” LJVMA board President Claude-Anthony Marengo said he is not in favor of the program taking away street parking. He said bike kiosks would be better located in street spaces painted yellow or red, if the city’s traffic and engineering departments would agree to it. n Regaining revenue: LJVMA board members are still grappling with how to ascertain which businesses have paid for a

Fortune said LJVMA’s fact-finding mission has other San Diego business improvement district groups conducting their own inventories to regain lost funds. “We’re even looking at getting a grant for some college students this summer to help us canvas all of our businesses so we can really get a handle on this, because there’s a lot of money that is not being collected or distributed,” Fortune said. The information will be reported to the city treasurer’s office, which will seek payment from non-compliant businesses. “We’re operating on shoestrings when we

could do so much more,” Marengo added of the lost revenue, which he said the LJVMA could use to hire a person to oversee cleaning the streets of the Village, and to take inventory of items that need to be addressed, such as maintenance of the LJVMA’s donor benches and plants and trees in the common area. Fortune said she has reached out to an organization that offers employment to adults with developmental challenges to “possibly do some sidewalk cleanup.” The volunteers would wear a vest identifying their affiliation with the LJVMA. n Game spaces up for bid: Bidding opened for businesses wishing to procure

Bids will be accepted until Friday, May 23. The game will include a variety of business categories, so that it is not all dominated by one type of business, Fortune said. n Next meeting: The LJVMA will meet 8:30 a.m. June 11 at the Cuvier Club, 7776 Eads Ave.,

From LiFeguard Tower, a1 Former lifeguard captain Bob Shea said his father helped construct the first Cove station. “My dad told me, and he was one of the first lifeguards to guard the Cove, that in the 1930s he created a depression in the cliff where the main stairway is, which is still seen today,” he said. “There are four bolts where a chair was seated there.” Lifeguard stations were typically staffed during the summer season, but due to the amount of locals who swam at the Cove, it merited additional coverage. A more official tower was built to house those lifeguards at the Cove in the 1930s. Lifeguards would store rescue boards and other required equipment in a concrete building behind the tower known as “the shack.” Architectural historian Tony Ciani said the first Cove tower was a Depression-era Works Projects Administration (WPA) project. The shuffleboard club that was once part of the La Jolla Bridge Club (but since removed) was also a WPA project.

Diving dilemmas When the 1940s and ‘50s came around, SCUBA diving was added to the recreational mix at the shoreline. La Jolla Cove became a renowned site for SCUBA diving and snorkeling, so in addition to getting people out of the water when needed, lifeguards now had to know what to do with SCUBA injuries. “Lifeguards had to speak that language and understand all the various ailments and issues (such as) barotrauma and all the things medically associated with SCUBA diving,” Lerma said. As a result, lifeguards were given equipment similar to that used by divers, so they could explore underwater during a rescue. Additionally, lifeguards would “size people up” (how confident was the diver navigating the waves, putting on the gear) from the tower before they got into the water (a similar practice takes place at The Shores). “If a diver knows their equipment and puts it on with familiarity, that’s one thing. If they are having a hard time getting to the beach, the equipment doesn’t fit, that’s the other side of the spectrum. Lifeguards have had to adapt to that,” Lerma said.

as SCuBa diving became more popular at the Cove, lifeguards were given similar equipment for use during a rescue.

Bigger digs When it came to updating the Cove tower in the 1970s, the second tower’s design team considered the lifeguards’ changing needs. Joking that the 1930s tower was “cozy” for the guards there, Ciani said the newer tower had more room and improved features. It was also moved back about 15 feet to extend visibility, closer to where “the shack” once was. The rebuilt tower had roll down windows that lifeguards could adjust as needed. Ciani, a former lifeguard who contributed to the design, said he also hoped to integrate an improved communications system. “If you were at Children’s Pool (and needed to reach lifeguards at the Cove), you would call the main office in Mission Beach and tell them to connect you to the Cove to let them know there was someone in a rip current at Boomer Beach, and they would run over,” he said. However, as radios became readily available, lifeguards began using them to communicate.

Communications Communication with other organizations has also improved. “We are experts

in a lot of things, particularly rescues, but there are things lifeguards need other agencies to help us with,” Lerma said. Citing the Department of Fish and Wildlife or National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association, he explained lifeguards have a list of people to call if an encounter or injury with a sea lion happens. Acknowledging the growing sea lion presence at The Cove (determined to be the cause of the “Cove stench” distressing nearby businesses and residents), Lerma said “Our job is to understand current rules and apply them to the duties expected of us. It’s a contentious issue, but we don’t take sides, we take direction.” The new $1.8-million Cove tower, which could be finished at the end of this year (or mid-2015), will be 80 square feet, a marked increase from the previous tower’s 30 square feet. This third tower will have a steel frame and wood siding on a concrete cantilevered base. u n Coming next week: The history of the changes to The Shores lifeguard tower in the May 29 issue of La Jolla Light.

When you’re away, Coast Home Watch stays alert for you coast home Watch was created at the request of the real estate clients of Mary Ellen Morgan (pictured) who needed professional attention for their vacation and second homes while they were away. Courtesy

By Marti Gacioch After 27 years as a La Jolla Realtor, Mary Ellen Morgan decided to start a niche business that fits her skills and experience perfectly: Coast Home Watch, a service that monitors the homes of people with second homes and high-end rental properties while they’re away. “A client suggested that I start this service because it’s especially needed in La Jolla where people will stay for five months and then leave for six months and not rent their home,” Morgan said. “When a home sits vacant, it can go into decline.” With Morgan consistently checking on properties, there’s not a chance of deterioration. After taking on a new client, Morgan familiarizes herself with the property by checking its condition to set up a routine checklist for her future visits. Afterward, she may visit a home once or twice a month, depending on the owner’s wishes. As Morgan walks through a home, she said she checks for leaky pipes, open windows, security breaches and signs of insect intrusion. She also looks to see how the garden is being cared for. Next, she briefly turns on the air conditioning, dishwasher, washer and dryer to see that they’re working and lubricated. “When I first start with a house, I’m the bad news bearer,” Morgan said, “but after selling hundreds of homes and following around

hundreds of home inspectors, I know where to look for problems, which I report to the owners.” Within 48 hours of checking a home, she sends the owner a report on their property. If there is something that needs their immediate attention, she’ll call or text them. Morgan’s goal is to keep the home in good working order, so when the owners return, they needn’t spend their vacation time repairing things. It’s up to the owners if they want to repair the problems themselves, or if they want Morgan to have it done by her licensed, insured, bonded repair people. She will also advise regarding alarm companies and securing home valuables. Coast Home Watch is now available in San Diego County areas including La Jolla, Del Mar, Rancho Santa Fe, Solana Beach and Point Loma. As an agent for Gallery Properties, Morgan remains active in the real estate business (she had a banner year in 2013 as her company’s top-seller!), but her energy is also focused on establishing Coast Home Watch. u n For more information about services offered by Coast Home Watch, call (858) 254-3602 or visit The Business Spotlight features commercial enterprises that support the La Jolla Light.

Service provider initiates ‘Vets Caring For Vets’ project


an Diego businessman and decades-long veterans advocate John Alexander has launched Vets Caring For Vets, an idea he got seven years ago. While operating Platinum Eldercare for 26 years, he said his vision was to apply what he learned about providing caregiving and concierge services to a new company that would focus on helping veterans directly. Alexander and his employees, consisting of veterans and their families, stand ready to provide non-medical, in-home care and concierge services for all veterans and civilians who prefer to have a veteran caregiver. “Vets Caring For Vets is the only agency that hires only veterans and family members of veterans,” said Alexander, adding Vets Caring For Vets is also the only agency that provides assistance to its veteran John alexander employees seeking their own veteran benefits. The company provides town hall-style meetings to inform about services and benefits available, and to discuss other matters of interest. For more information, visit u

From ShoreS LiFeguard Tower, a7 present at The Shores, such as when glass is being ordered. Asked why crews couldn’t start demolition right away and rely solely on Tower 32 for the Memorial Day weekend, Stropky said, “We need time to prepare an operations plan ... We’ve talked about this for several months and it’s something we all agree needs to be done as soon as possible because it has to do with public safety.” Some board members expressed concern about whether the beach would be safe under the said operations plan. To alleviate their concerns, member Mary Coakley-Munk made a motion that LJSA approve an exception to the summer moratorium on the condition the lifeguards endorse or create a safety plan and inform the LJSA chair of it by May 23. The motion passed. Stropky said he was confident a plan could be drafted and endorsed by the deadline.

Further, board member Janie Emerson expressed doubt the project would be complete in June, and made a second motion to alleviate her concerns. “Construction never happens on time, anyone that has ever done remodeling knows that, and you’re giving us an optimal schedule. I would bet, given the history of this project you will not be in before the Fourth of July, which just stretches (construction) out even more into the summer,” she said. She noted that ideally the project should start after Labor Day, when the summer construction moratorium ends, but made a motion that if the city determines the project will not be done by the end of June, they not proceed with work and start construction after Labor Day. The motion passed. u n La Jolla Shores Association next meets 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 11 at 8840 Biological Grade at the Scripps Institute of Oceanography.

Park Row couple spooked by surprise visitor, then saddened by its fate By Pat Sherman What one La Jolla couple believed to be a “horrible monster” crashing their midnight movie last week turned out to be an injured, sadly misunderstood mother possum. Park Row resident Kate Masel said she and her boyfriend were at home watching a film when her 55-pound boxer, Adelaide, burst through the doggie door with what Masel at first thought to be a fat feline in its mouth. When the couple noticed the creature’s long, rodent-like tail, menacing grimace and sharp teeth, terror set in. “We panicked,” Masel said. “I stood up and Adelaide dropped it right on the rug. It immediately rolled on its side and ‘played possum.’ I thought I had a rabies-crazed animal in the house.” Not wanting the animal to run under the sofa or upstairs where Masel’s teenage daughter was asleep, the couple placed a milk crate over the large creature, which barely contained it. “We could see at a distance that its eyes were following us,” Masel said. However, after phoning the County of San Diego’s Department of Animal Services, animal control officer Shalimar Oliver arrived at Masel’s home, quickly allaying the couple’s fears and soothing the injured animal — which was pregnant with seven joeys (baby possums). “She virtually started petting it,” recalled Masel with incredulity. “It was such an amazing, benevolent experience. … She was so passionate, so caring.” Despite possums’ appearance and revolting hiss — a defense mechanism — the creatures are far less of a threat than raccoons, Masel learned. “People typically see raccoons as adorable — ‘It’s so cute, look at the little black mask over its eyes. Oh, I want to touch it,’ ” Oliver said, advising that people do just the opposite, and keep their distance. Raccoons can be very aggressive and are a

Rooting for leash-free dog hours at LJ beaches In response to “Happiness is Dogs on the beach,” like the letter-writer Nancy, a highlight of my day is walking along the beach early in the morning with my two friendly Schnauzers. On Friday, May 2 at 8 a.m., a lifeguard instructed me to leash my dogs as I was walking along the northern end of WindanSea Beach, heading toward Marine Beach. I asked if I was receiving a warning? His answer was to ask for identification and he proceeded to write a citation. When I inquired how much it would cost, he replied that he didn’t know and that I would receive that information in the mail. He then told me about the unleashed dog parks available — all nearly a 30-minute drive from WindanSea Beach. Factoring in driving and walking time would make this a two-hour outing. I love my dogs and walk them twice a day, but I have a life, too! I was thinking the same thing Nancy proposes, providing La Jolla residents and their dogs time on a portion of the beach, early in the morning, say 6:30-8.30 a.m. Kay Douglas La JoLLa

known rabies vector (or carrier). “(They perceive) that you are an immediate threat to their safety, well-being and they will use aggression,” Oliver said. “They have severely injured dogs and … people have been bitten by them. They can carry rabies, they can give it to domestic pets, and they can give it to us if they’re infected with it and they bite us.” Raccoons are also smart and tenacious, Oliver said, so trying to outsmart them is not advised. “Even when I have to capture sick and injured ones, they will fight until the end,” she said, suggesting that people not leave pet food

outside or open trash cans that might attract raccoons or other wildlife, such as skunks. Conversely, possums are typically docile. “When they are threatened, they resort to looking big, ugly and scary with their big, shiny teeth — just as any animal when protecting their babies — but they’re not an animal that’s going to threaten and stalk you or intends to be vicious,” Oliver said. Despite Oliver’s soothing touch, the Park Row possum and the fingernail-sized offspring in its pouch could not be saved, and the mother, whose pelvis and lower spine were broken, was euthanized. “Unfortunately the boxer thought it was a little chew toy; that’s typically how these injuries are sustained,” Oliver said. “Their skeleton is so fragile they cannot withstand the chomp.” When a wild animal has minor injuries, animal control officers typically take it to Project Wildlife, a nonprofit, volunteer organization that nurses possums, coyotes, birds of prey and other wildlife back to health. “I have a little possum lady that loves to foster the babies,” if they are large enough and healthy enough, Oliver said. Animal control officers will respond and assist with wildlife that are sick, injured, delivering offspring or trapped, Oliver said. If an animal appears healthy, she advises people to give it breathing room and let it move along on its own. “Unfortunately, we built into their habitat and this is part of the price that we all pay living together in the community,” she said. “Most of these guys are foragers, so the less food sources that you provide the more they’re inclined to maybe check out your yard and then move on.” With more warm weather on the horizon, La Jollans can expect more critters emerging from the canyons, such as possums, coons and coyotes (meaning small dogs and cats would best be left indoors). “It’s their time to shine right now,” Oliver advised. u


There’s a way to tell sea lions from seals Art Cooley pointed out in his letter in the May 1 La Jolla Light that sea lions can climb higher up on the rocks than harbor seals can, and that the photo of the pinniped up on a rock north of the Scripps Pier in the April 24 letter to the Light was undoubtedly a sea lion and not a seal. As a former marine biology research scientist, I took a course in marine mammals from Dr. Carl Hubbs as a graduate student at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO), and I learned how to tell the difference between the two species. Hubbs was a famous ichthyologist (fish specialist), but he also studied marine mammals and taught the course back in the 1950s and ’60s. I learned (and also observed in nature) that sea lions are able to “walk” or “scoot along” on the sand and rocks by moving both their front flippers and their back flippers back-and-forth, and they can exhibit an upright posture. Seals, on the other hand, can only propel themselves

a sea lion (left) and harbor seal in La Jolla. File with their front flippers with their back flippers dragging behind them when they “walk” on the beach, exhibiting a more prone position than sea lions. Sea lions are definitely more maneuverable on land than seals are. Also, if you look closely, you can see that sea lions have small external ears protruding from the sides of their heads, whereas seals have no external ears, just small holes on each side of their head where the ears should be. Now you know what to look for when you are observing pinnipeds in nature to distinguish between seals and sea lions! u Dr. Linda Haithcock Pequegnat La JoLLa

Planning Association seeks candidates for July 3 special election La Jolla Community Planning Association From lJCPA rePorTS

The La Jolla Community Planning Association (LJCPA) will hold a special election Thursday, July 3 to fill two vacancies. (Jim Fitzgerald resigned from the LJCPA board in April, and trustee Gail Forbes has stated she will be moving from La Jolla and intends to resign during the June meeting.) The LJCPA is La Jolla’s community organization recognized by the City of San Diego to make recommendations on local land use and infrastructure matters. Its current board is comprised of residents from nearly every La Jolla neighborhood. LJCPA board members serve La Jolla by having their voice heard in local planning affairs; reviewing private development and city projects for conformance to La Jolla’s community plan; and collaborating to achieve the best outcome for residents, merchants, property owners and applicants.

Anyone interested in being a candidate should send an e-mail to no later than the LJCPA’s next regular meeting on Thursday, June 5, or they may attend the meeting to announce their intention to run. Because there is a significant time commitment, the LJCPA only accepts self-nominations. As candidates self-nominate they will be listed at Candidates must be a member of the LJCPA in good standing and have attended at least three LJCPA meetings during the 12 months prior to the July 3 election (July 2013 to June 2014). Attendance and membership can be verified at Upon election, new board members will participate in monthly meetings held at 6 p.m. first Thursdays of the month. The city offers a brief training on land development law and processes. Meetings are always open to the public and are guided by the LJCPA’s bylaws, city policies and the Brown Act to ensure that meetings and deliberations are inclusive and transparent. The LJCPA’s work is supplemented by a subcommittee structure that includes: the Planned District Ordinance, Development Permit Review, and La Jolla Shores Permit Review committees; the Traffic and Transportation Board and the Coastal Access and Parking Board, as well as various

From Cell Tower, A1 for the health and safety of children who attend Torrey Pines Elementary School (adjacent to the park) and would be exposed to Electric and Magnetic Fields (EMF) radiation from the tower. LJSA chair Tim Lucas reminded parents that due to the Telecommunications Act of 1996, any action taken by an advisory board on cell towers cannot involve EMF and health issues. Nevertheless, parents cited studies that show negative health impacts on those exposed to EMF. One parent, Catherine Carron, called upon integrative medicine specialist Dan Harper, M.D., to speak about health issues that might stem from EMF exposure and how children are more susceptible to them. DePratti Gardner argued that the studies presented were not “apples to apples” comparisons with what she was presenting. “With the towers discussed in these studies, we have no idea how many antennas are on them or the frequencies. … If you want to give me a study based on a 30-foot tower with 12 antennas, operating at 30 watts per antenna, then it would be apples to apples.” She further offered to document the amount of ambient EMF present in the air — which is found wherever there is electricity, such as hair dryers, microwaves or wireless technology — including what is already at the school, and at play areas such as the La Jolla Rec Center. But Carron noted her concern would be for the cumulative EMF exposure, should the tower’s fields be added to what is already there.

ad hoc committees.

When asked whether all other possible locations for the tower were explored, DePratti Gardner said there is a certain topography required and geographic area to cover, which limits AT&T’s options. She also noted that in the past, towers were placed on the tops of mountains, but radiated EMF out into the air at much more powerful levels. Other parent concerns not pertaining to EMF included the fee-based youth sports played at the field and the hazardous materials self-contained within the towers. u n More information and an opportunity for public comment will be available at the next meeting to discuss the cell tower, 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, May 27 at Torrey Pines Elementary School, 8350 Cliffridge Ave.

Sardines, higher in fat than other fish that sea lions eat (including anchovies, juvenile hake and squid), provide sufficient nutrition for nursing sea lion mothers. Sam McClatchie, a supervisory oceanographer at La Jolla’s Southwest Fisheries Science Center, said sardinespawning grounds have shifted progressively offshore over the last 15 years. He said spawning sites shift further and closer to shore from year to year, but the overall trend is that they are moving offshore. These further distances are particularly problematic for nursing sea lion mothers that don’t want to be away from their pups for long periods of time and newly weaned pups foraging on their own, both of which need the fat. Additionally, NOAA regularly tracks the number of sardines along the coast of Southern California and found there are fewer spawning fish than in previous years. “Our spring survey showed very few sardines. We don’t know if they have temporarily disappeared or moved out of the survey area. We may find they are further north. They may have spawned earlier this year,” McClatchie said of the results of the biannual survey spanning from San Diego to San Francisco, offshore to approximately 550 kilometers (341 miles). He added there is a summer survey that tracks San Diego to North Vancouver Island that would give further insight into spawning patterns for the sardines.

During the unusual mortality event investigation, scientists looked at viruses or disease that might have been the cause, and tested a subset of pups for radiation stemming from the Fukushima nuclear disaster in 2011. The pups tested negative for radiation and widespread disease was not determined to be a major cause. One type of virus, known as “astrovirus,” was identified in a high percentage of sampled pups, but Wilkins noted astrovirus is found in healthy animals in the wild and in captivity. Researchers determined astrovirus might have contributed to the severity of the impact, and are still investigating. During the mortality event, specifically in April 2013, 1,300 malnourished pups were taken into rehabilitation centers across California — twice the amount reported in April 2014 (GSO). San Diego alone had 381 live reported sea lion strandings in 2013, up from their five-year average of 67. Further, stranding occurred earlier than usual. “What’s unique about the 2013 event is that we were seeing stranding in January, February and March, which is unprecedented,” Wilkin said. Stranding is expected during May and June, when pups would be weaning and learning to forage on their own. Wilkin reported that the sea lions that were taken in for rehabilitation had a high survival rate and over 50 percent survived to be released. Of the 14 that were fitted with a satellite tag, most survived following their release and behavior was consistent with other sea lions their age. u

The Cum Laude Society was founded in 1906 to recognize superior scholarship in independent school students. The founding model was very much like Phi Beta Kappa at the collegiate level, which recognizes and encourages true academic scholarship. Today, Cum Laude has grown to 382 chapters mostly in the United States. Bishop’s chapter was founded in 1956. Approximately 4,000 students nationwide will be inducted into the society this year. u courtesy

By Ed PiPEr enior Perry Cohen of La Jolla High, who historically plays some of his best golf in the City Conference Tournament, carded a 71 last week to finish as low man and medalist in the 2014 edition of the tournament. The Vikings sport a strong team, from No. 1 to No. 6, and have high hopes for the CIF Section team championship May 27-29 at Admiral Baker Golf Course off Friars Road near the I-15. “Our team has the best chance of winning CIF this year,” said Cohen, who signed a letter of intent with St. Mary’s College, a Division I program, on national signing day this spring. “We put a lot more effort into seeing who our fifth and sixth players would be this year, to make sure we have a solid team as a whole.” Cohen’s cohorts include fellow senior and friend Ben Doyle, who won the CIF individual title last year. Doyle committed to Cal Berkeley’s Division I program, sitting alongside Cohen on signing day at the Hall of Champions in Balboa Park. Filling out the top six on Head Coach Don Hildre’s squad, after Doyle as No. 1 and Cohen as No. 2, are seniors Joey Varnam and Ben Leibowitz, freshman Kevin Wan and sophomore Jarid Morrison. Doyle said of the mental part of his game:


“I have tried to keep as calm as possible coming down to the last few holes of tournaments. I know how good my game is right now, and I feel like having a high confidence level is the most important thing for me right now.” People might look at his CIF championship last year and say it all comes easily for him. Doyle’s rejoinder: “I go through ups and downs all the time. It’s part of the game. But right now, I feel I have the confidence to know that any rough patch I’m going through will be over quickly.” Coach Hildre said, “I feel that if my boys put it all together, we can win the CIF title. My top four have been pretty consistent in play. It’s an individual sport, but they play as a team, so I’ve emphasized what will help the betterment of the team. We focused on (playing spots) numbers five and six, not on league. We probably lost one or two league matches that we could have won ... “I was big on course management this year — that can kill a team if a player gets a big score. But if you can shave off one or two strokes, it can help the team strength from top to bottom.” Teammates help one another with choosing which club to use and reading putts, Cohen said, “But, typically, I am very much in my own world when hitting a ball, so I do not get distracted by much.” u

La Jolla Rough Water Swim postponed


ue to the ongoing construction of La Jolla Cove lifeguard tower, the 84th La Jolla Rough Water Swim (LJRWS) scheduled for September will be postponed to 2015. Bill Perry, LJRWS media relations representative, said in a statement, “Originally, the City of San Diego’s construction schedule projected completion prior to our event but this is no longer the case.

“This is the first time since 1959 that we have been forced to cancel our event and we are all very disappointed. Alternative venues were considered by the operations committee, but after polling a random sampling of past entrants and committee members, the consensus was to postpone the 84th Swim until 2015, rather than organize a sub-standard event.” More information at u

Let Inga Tell You

Proof of life


La Jolla Cultural Partners

’ve written before about my neighbor Bob’s cat, Tiger. Or actually, former cat Tiger. This wonderful kitty passed away last summer despite heroic treatments to save him. Bob was devastated. But a new and happy feline chapter has begun. The irony is that for the first few years we knew Bob, he not only didn’t have pets, but it was clear he didn’t want them. The first column I wrote about Tiger chronicled the story of the cat showing up nightly outside Bob’s French doors, meowing piteously, as Bob watched ESPN. Bob would patiently return the cat to its rightful owners, two ladies who lived a block away. Bob had a demanding job, a robust social life, and as his hunky physique attested (brief pause while Inga splashes water on her face) logged serious gym time. No interest in a cat. But the cat was undeterred, and after a few hundred dollars’ worth of consultations with a kitty psychic (commissioned by the two ladies, not Bob), the feline Freud announced that while Tiger was grateful to his current owners, he would prefer the male bonding and continuous ESPN coverage on two

large screen TVs offered at Bob’s. And thus Tiger officially relocated, and like Bob, became an inveterate Yankees fan. There was some conjecture that Tiger was in it for the premium sports channels all along. It was hard to say exactly when, but over the course of a lot of stolen bases, Tiger stole Bob’s heart as well. It took a few months after Tiger’s passing, but Bob decided that a house without a sportswatching cat was not a home. Girlfriends came and went but it had not been lost on Bob that a cat loved you unconditionally, and more to the point, never complained about the ridiculous number of athletic events you might be simultaneously viewing. It helped that the cat was a serious sports fan himself. When Bob went to look for a new cat four months after Tiger’s demise, I don’t think there was a marmalade tabby in this county that was not thoroughly vetted. We suggested to Bob that he show prospective kitties his iPad tuned to ESPN and see how they reacted. My husband Olof observed that as long as the cat knew the infield fly rule, he’d work out fine.

Life’s a Breeze, at chillin’ Del Mar café By Kelley Carlson t Del Mar’s Breeze Café, guests just go with the flow. The eatery is quintessential California: Patrons congregate on a sun-kissed patio and chat over chai teas, while gazing out over the Pacific Ocean just a couple of blocks away. It’s a stopping point for Del Mar Plaza shoppers to power up, and for guests who want to leave their cares behind. Even the menu is “relaxed” and often changed, as it’s crafted by customers’ feedback, according to manager Chris Gallego. The restaurant opens at 7 a.m. daily with simple offerings of coffee and house-made pastries, but breakfast dining gets under way at 8 a.m. Among the current faves is the Sugar-Spiced Salmon Hash, a dish that exercises the taste buds: flaky Alaskan salmon with a sugar-mustard glaze, supplemented with chunks of red potatoes, feta, green onions and cilantro, plus two poached eggs. There’s the Corned Beef Hash, which includes a festive medley of green onions, red bell peppers, melted cheddar, shredded potatoes and two poached eggs with chives on top. The light Fresh Berry Waffles feature strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and a

Blackened Fish Tacos are topped with salsa fresca, jicama slaw and chile aioli inside white corn tortillas (which are made in Breeze Cafe’s sister restaurant upstairs, Pacifica Del Mar). A Tasting of Both Soups includes the Japanese Clam Chowder Shiitake and Mulligatawny Soup Curry.

Anti-Migraine Spinach Pesto ■ Ingredients: • 2 cups fresh baby spinach leaves, stems removed • 1 garlic clove • 1/3 cup toasted walnuts, skin removed • 2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil • 1⁄2 cup grated Parmesan cheese • Salt and pepper to taste ■ Method: After toasting walnuts, rub between a dish towel to remove the flaky and somewhat bitter skin. Shake walnuts in a strainer to sift out the remaining skin. In a food processor or blender, add the spinach, walnuts, garlic, salt and pepper, and blend until minced. Slowly add a stream of oil until the mixture forms a smooth, creamy texture. Place in a glass bowl and blend in the cheese. Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days.

Migraine Mitigation: Kick the enemy to the trenches


pring blusters up quirky climate conditions, pressure changes, and fills the air with pollen and other allergens, creating the perfect storm for headaches of all varieties. Mine are debilitating migraines with a typical assortment of neurological symptoms. For fellow migraine sufferers (27 million in this country alone), here are ways to combat the sneaky foe on two fronts — by avoiding triggers and amping up foods to fend them off.

Don’t be Trigger Happy Certain foods and drinks have been linked to stirring up migraines. While different triggers affect different folks, it seems that the common denominator is a pair of feisty amino acids called tyramine and phenylethylamine. These are found in stinky cheeses (aged and fermented), including the blue-veined moldy varieties like Gorgonzola, Roquefort and Stilton, along with cheddar and Brie. Other foods containing the migraine culprits are assorted soy products, balsamic and red wine vinegars, liquor and chocolate — pity. While alcohol generally causes headaches due to its dehydrating effect, beer, red wine, vermouth and sherry have a mother lode of tyramine, so ban these boozes completely. Processed meats like hot dogs, sausages, pastrami, salami and other deli “delights” are not only artery-cloggers, but rife with nitrites. These nitrites preserve cured and smoked foods, while fueling the migraine monster. Either avoid these altogether or seek out nitrite-free alternatives. Sulfites, another hidden migraine menace, lurk in dried fruits, including apricots, prunes, raisins and figs, along with jams and preserves, processed foods, wines and wine coolers. Avoid other potential triggers like additives and artificial sweeteners, such as

the notorious MSG (monosodium glutamate), hydrolyzed proteins, yeast extract and aspartame. Be on the look-out and read labels judiciously.

Mighty Migraine Fighters Choice foods and fluids that ward off inflammation and dehydration are key to keeping the enemy at bay. n Magnesium Militia: This mighty mineral has been found to help put the skids on both mainstream and menstrual migraines. So load up on magnesium rich foods, kicking off the day with a powerful spinach smoothie and a whole-wheat English muffin slathered with sunflower seed butter. Toss some migraine-busting millet in a green salad, whip up a quinoa tabouleh over a bed of Swiss chard, and indulge in sweet potatoes, brown rice and other whole grains. n Water Warriors: Keeping hydrated throughout the day is your best defense against migraine attacks. So drink plenty of H2O, about six to eight glasses daily. For a more palatable swig, add a splash of pomegranate juice, a squeeze of lemon or lime, or float some cucumber slices, pomegranate seeds or berries on top. Also, eat water-packed foods like watermelon and honeydew melon to keep those thirsty brain cells hydrated. Lay off sodas, sweetened drinks and fruit juices that are packed with energy-depleting sugars, calories and possible migraine triggers. n B-2 Bombers: Riboflavin aka Vitamin B2 has been a miraculous ally against migraines, reducing the occurrences by as much as 50 percent thanks to its ability to hike the brain’s energy metabolism. Riboflavin rich sources include asparagus, crimini or Italian brown mushrooms, broccoli and fortified whole-grain cereals. — For additional migraine-busting recipes, e-mail

Drawing a salary

One of many suggested remedies for a potential uprising of the living dead offered in Steve Breen’s book, ‘Unicorn Executions and Other Crazy Stuff My Kids Make Me Draw.’ Hollywood’s interest with his latest, off-kilter collection. An agent in Los Angeles was able to market the concept as a movie, with Universal Studios winning a bidding war that included four other studios. Scott Stuber, whose films include the comedies “Ted” and “Identity Thief,” will produce, Rawson Thurber (“We’re the Millers”) is slated to direct and Simon Rich

(“Saturday Night Live”) will write the script. Breen said the movie as currently envisioned is influenced by the illustrations in “Unicorn Executions” and the story of his creative father-son collaborations. “The idea was to make these drawings come to life,” said Breen, a graduate of UC Riverside who landed his first cartooning job at Asbury Park Press in New Jersey. “I

As a political cartoonist for U-T San Diego, with work syndicated in newspapers across the country, Breen has until 6:30 p.m. each day to pore over the day’s news — or suggestions from U-T editors — that will help him come up with something inspired, clever or poignant, such as the art included in Pulitzer portfolio wins for 1997 (inspired by Princess Diana’s death, the O.J. Simpson trial) and 2008 (the financial meltdown, Sarah Palin’s vice-presidential bid). Though Breen said people have accused him of kowtowing to each of the paper’s owners since he came onboard — from Helen and David Copley to Papa Doug Manchester — Breen maintains that’s not the case.


Crazy Stuff My Kids Make Me Draw,” as well as limited edition prints, 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 27 at Warwick’s Bookstore, 7812 Girard Ave. in La Jolla. Breen said his agent suggested he gather the grisly ’toons he’d drawn for his boys over the years for a book. “I probably had 100 or so that I had done over the years, but I needed more,” Breen told La Jolla Light. “A lot of the drawings that I had were centered on Star Wars figures or D.C. and Marvel (comic) superheroes. None of those were allowed to be in the book because of copyright and trademark issues, so I started a Twitter account called Sketch Monkey, where I would draw these whacky drawings and post them online … (which) kind of forced us to regularly produce these things. “The art just had to make my boys laugh,” he said. “That was really the only requirement.” Naturally, Breen’s adolescently adult voice shines through in the book. “A lot of times it was, ‘Hey dad, let’s do something with zombies’ and then I would kind of add a twist to it,” he said. “They wanted to see a T-Rex eating someone, so instead of making it some random person, I made it Donald Trump.’’ Other illustrations depict actress Betty White punching out a gorilla, Disney princesses aged beyond perfection and a “Bounty” hunter aiming his riffle at a role of paper towels. Breen — also author of several decidedly tamer children’s books — has piqued

don’t want to reveal too much, but the movie involves live action and CGI (computer-generated imagery) mixed together — kind of like ‘Night at the Museum.’ ” Breen said he bears in mind that movie studios frequently acquire the rights to books that never make it to the screen. “We’re hopeful though,” he said. “We think it will happen.” Breen, who has three other children, including two young girls and a baby boy, said his daughters were “too sweet … and too busy watching ‘Frozen’ 900 times a week” to take part in the book. Working with his sons, he said he tried not to push the gore envelope too far. “You’re still a father at the end of the day and you don’t want to expose them to an excessive amount of human suffering,” he said.

“I come up with roughs and I show them the roughs … and then they will pick the one they like best,” Breen said. “Luckily, I’m not too far away from the political leanings of the paper — I’m right of center — but I will never do a carton that I disagree with. … No one will ever say, ‘Steve, we are opposed to the X initiative and we want you to be opposed to the X initiative and draw a cartoon (about it).’ If I disagree with the editorial board on a topic, I just won’t address it and I won’t do a cartoon on it. … “A lot of these same people who criticize me for being too conservative (and going

after Obama) forget all the jabs that I took at Bush and Cheney.” However, Breen noted, no political cartoonist’s gig is ever completely laissezfaire. “As is their right,” he said, “all three owners have kind of let it be known that certain topics are off-limits, and that was the case I think in New Jersey, too — and that’s a publisher’s right.” Asked if he’s regretted any of his cartoons, Breen said he laments one he did about Monica Lewinsky for Asbury Park Press, inspired by the former presidential intern’s indiscretion with Bill Clinton (the ’toon took

a shot at Lewinsky’s not-so-svelte figure). “It was fun for me at the time being 29 years old without any kids, but I’m not sure if I would have enjoyed it so much now with kids,” he said. If he had the chance to do it again, Breen said he also might have approached his favorite local political firestorm — the Bob Filner sexual harassment scandal — a little differently. Although some said his exaggeration of Filner’s facial features were reminiscent of Cesar Romero (who played Batman’s original Joker on TV), others said the characterizations

‘Channeling’ the Author

Typewriter Performance Art exhibit opens at MCASD From MCASD Reports im Youd has undertaken the task of retyping 100 classic novels over the course of five years, using the same make and model typewriter as the author did. He stages his durational performances at locations integral to the plot of the novel or pertinent to the author’s life — places they lived or held jobs. “Tim Youd: The Long Goodbye” chronicles his “mission,” and is on exhibit at Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (MCASD) in La Jolla through Aug. 31. During the month of July, Youd will retype Raymond Chandler’s “The Long Goodbye” at MCASD, in the Krichman Gallery overlooking the ocean. Through his pilgrimages to these “charged” sites, where he sits typing on an antiquated machine, Youd courts the mythologies that attend famed literary figures. At the same time, his performances stand as mechanical demonstrations of endurance-word after word, hour after hour. In recent months, the artist has retyped each of Chandler’s Philip Marlowe crime novels, leading up to “The Long Goodbye,” the sixth in the seven-volume series. The acclaimed detective fiction writer moved to La Jolla in 1946 with his wife, Cissy, settling down the street from MCASD on Camino de la Costa. There, Chandler wrote “The Long Goodbye,” as well as


Tim Youd retypes Raymond Chandler’s ‘Farewell, My Lovely’ at the Santa Monica pier — 292 pages on an Underwood Noiseless. January 2014.

Also On View ■ New exhibitions at MCASD in La Jolla also includes ‘Treasures of the Tamayo Museum, Mexico City,’ which will be on display through Aug. 31. See canvases by Rufino Tamayo, Pablo Picasso and Francis Bacon, among others, and recent works by Gabriel Orozco and Carlos Amorales.

Eric Minh Swensonh

“Playback,” which is set in a fictionalized La Jolla that he called “Esmerelda.” This exhibition features new works by Youd related to these novels, as well as selected pieces from the first year of his larger “100 Novels” series.

Steps in his process 1) Youd types relentlessly on a single sheet of paper backed with an additional sheet. As he runs the doubled page through the carriage again and again, a dark monochrome emerges and the novel is rendered illegible. 2) Upon completion, the two sheets are mounted as a diptych, a positive and negative image suggesting two pages of an open book. 3) Youd memorializes the typewriter on which each novel was written, creating a sculptural “portrait” of the

machine. Made of layered cardboard that is carved away and painted, it stands as a surrogate for the writer him or herself. Youd has made a typewriter portrait for each of the seven Philip Marlow novels, as well as an eighth for the unfinished novel Chandler was working on at the time of his death in 1959. Perhaps these commemorative sculptures, along with Youd’s performances, offer a kind of long goodbye to Chandler himself. u n If you go: The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego is open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. (Closed Wednesdays.) Admission: $10; seniors and students, $5. Free, 5-7 p.m. third Thursdays. 700 Prospect St., La Jolla. (858) 454-3541.

parker invites Community builders to leadercast At Francis Parker School we seek to inspire and develop tomorrow’s leaders. Leadership doesn’t simply mean to be in charge. Leadership is inspiring others to take on

challenges and reach beyond their expectations. That is why Parker is inviting San Diegans to attend Leadercast, a daylong leadership-building event on May 9 that will be telecast live from Atlanta at Parker’s Linda Vista Campus. Speakers at the event include best-selling author Malcolm Gladwell, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Former First Lady Laura Bush and other communications, business and creative leaders. Leadercast proposes to “build leaders worth following” and we are proud that our own student leaders from the student-run magazine Mosaic are coordinating the presentation of this telecast for a San Diego audience. You are invited to attend along with current

leaders from San Diego’s business, academic, civic and neighborhood communities. Tickets may be purchased online at http:// and proceeds will be used to support the student publication, Mosaic. Mosaic magazine is produced by Parker students participating in the Global Journal Project (GJP), a non-profit organization that engages school communities in sharing stories and forming bonds across international and cultural borders. The articles cover a wide range of topics. Each issue is intended to promote insightful and culturally respectful dialogue.

The magazine is an entirely student run enterprise created in partnership with students from the Preuss School at UCSD. Students oversee curating the stories from local, national and international contributors. In addition to managing editorial production, students must fundraise to cover the cost of publication and market the magazine. We hope you’ll plan on attending Leadercast at Francis Parker School on Friday, May 9. Join us as we strive to build students and citizens that will lead us through to a bright and exciting future.

Directing the San Diego premiere is Rob Lutfy, the 2012-13 William R. Kenan, Jr. Directing Fellow at The John F. Kennedy Center. The play premiered on Broadway in 2011 with a host of stars in the cast, and has been nominated for several Tony awards. Moving the play out to theaters across the country, directors have had challenges, considering its foul-language and tough talk about alcoholism. “This is not a Julia Roberts comedy for sure,” Lutfy said. “It’s a real human story about love and how, sometimes, we’re addicted to something that’s not good for us, and that includes the people in our lives. If you can get over the title and profanity, you’ll probably never see a funnier tragedy. “Guirgis writes with a great compassion and has an original take on ‘class’ — (some) people are virtually invisible to the whitecollar world. I love that about this play.” The story deals with broken promises and examines acceptance, loyalty and love. Jackie (Steven Lone) and Veronica (Sandra Ruiz) were sweethearts in eighth grade, and although they are still in love, barriers stand in their way to happiness. “Guirgis explains that it’s about growing up and accepting responsibility,” Lutfy said.

Murray suggested, “Robby is that rare form of director who gets the whole picture. He’s both visionary and truth-finder, and he speaks to actors with understanding and humility, always guiding, always searching and never settling.” Lutfy added, “I think theatre is meant to engage the mind, provoke thoughts, and confront us with things. This is a love story and these characters want the kind of love we see in movies, but they can’t see that it’s right out of reach because they are up to their necks in something they can’t escape. They desperately need to avoid each other. “What I like about this play is that it’s trying to put pieces together to figure out the story.” u

Rob Lutfy directs Stephen Adly Guirgis’ Tony-award nominated ‘The Motherf**ker with the Hat’ at Cygnet Theatre. Courtesy

“Jackie is going through the 12 Steps of Recovery … and the Serenity Prayer … knowing the difference of things that can change and those that cannot. I tell the actors this play is about the wisdom to know the difference, and Jackie is learning what he can do to change his life.” Casting a serious drama with ongoing hilarity is not an easy task, so Cygnet’s Artistic Director Sean Murray and Lutfy worked together to find the right actors. “It is hard to teach an actor to be funny,” Lutfy said. “There are techniques for cracking jokes, but when looking for an actor who knows how to find the positive in roles that are very negative — like with these characters — we needed actors who

know the good, who know what makes their characters lovable and who can hook into the comedy naturally and make it happen. Once you lock into Guirgis’ rhythm you can easily ride it.”

n If you go: “The Motherf**ker with the Hat” plays matinees and evenings through June 22 at Cygnet Theatre Company, Old Town Stage, 4040 Twiggs St., San Diego. Tickets start at $34. (619) 337-1525.

Chekhov would chuckle over Globe’s new comedy By Diana Saenger Christopher Durang’s “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike” (Tony Award for Best Play 2013) has been called “the funniest new American play of the year.” It’s now on stage at The Old Globe Theatre, where cast member Candy Buckley (Masha) calls it “an illegal amount of fun!” The story centers on an artsy family, whose the parents named their children after characters from Russian author Anton Chekhov’s works. The eldest, Masha, a Hollywood starlet in B-movies, has come home to help her siblings with decisions about their aging parents. Buckley said she was very excited to land the role. “Great roles like this don’t just come along,” Buckley said. “For me, the role matters more than anything else, and this was a role I really wanted to play. “Masha is grand but also a self-absorbed movie star. She has heart, and that’s the balance, as she’s also vain and there are so many outrageous things going on — like bringing her boy toy, Spike (Tyler Lansing Weaks), back home with her. He’s her alternative to getting older, having a hard time, and her self-pity.” Buckley has many connections to this play. She acted with Martin Moran (playing Vanya) in “Cabaret.” She’s known Marcia DeBonis (playing Sonia), who is also a casting director, for some time. She’s also appeared in some of playwright Durang’s other works. Jessica Stone, a frequent collaborator with

Old Globe Associate Artist Nicholas Martin, directs. Buckley said she’s a long-time admirer of Stone’s work. “I saw her in ‘Design For Living’ on Broadway with Alan Cummings; in ’Anything Goes,’ and directing ‘A Funny Thing Happened On The Way to the Forum,’ ” Buckley said. “She’s very funny, smart, and comes to us from both sides of the table because she’s an actor and director. Jessica lets us speak up and is not intimidated by what we have to say; she keeps her cool. “This play deals with the end of the life spectrum (for Candy Buckley the parents) as well appears as Masha as the younger generation on computers and cell phones and not relating to each other. At one point, Vanya goes off on a brilliant rant everyone will enjoy. I know the audience will laugh themselves silly at the nuttiness of this Chekhovian family.” u n If you go: “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike” plays matinees, evenings through June 22 at the Donald and Darlene Shiley Stage, The Old Globe Theatre, 1363 Old Globe Way in Balboa Park, San Diego.

Secret Garden Tour of La Jolla offers peek into botanical gems


or many adults, the favorite on the La Jolla Historical Society’s 16th Annual Secret Garden Tour of La Jolla May 17 was the grand estate garden on Ludington Place. The repeat tour of this lovely home showcased refurbished landscaping by local La Jolla landscape architect Todd Fry. For kids, the home on La Jolla Scenic Drive South was a show stopper. From the traditional Japanese garden entrance to the baseball diamond, tennis court, tree house and chicken coop, this 3.5-acre property featured something for everyone. u Photos by Phyllis Pfeiffer

The Ludington Place estate highlighted extensive lawns, mature trees and sweeping ocean views. Peaks through windows into the elegant home created house, as well as garden, envy. Dot Renshaw (at left), the artist in the garden, captured the flowering jacaranda.

The Platinum Home showcased the elegant Harold Abrams-designed home on Via del Norte in La Jolla Hermosa. The new pool pavilion added a lively and welcoming touch to the formal gardens.

Shana Wride and Andrew Barnicle star in the world premiere of ‘Faded Glory’ at the North Coast Repertory Theatre. Aaron Rumley

North Coast Rep’s ‘Faded Glory’ takes rollicking romp through one man’s amazing life By Diana Saenger From scoundrel and murderer to military hero, Daniel Sickels lived an adventurous life in late-19th century America. “Faded Glory,” by playwright Tim Burns, explores Sickels’ journey, and will have its world premiere at the North Coast Repertory Theatre, directed by David Ellenstein. Sickels was a congressman, philanderer, embezzler, Civil War general and recipient of a Congressional Medal of Honor, among many other titles. Actor Andrew Barnicle, a long-time Ellenstein collaborator, said he’s excited to take on this character. “Sickels was a very interesting guy and when I looked him up on the Internet, I found stories about him go on for 10 pages,” Barnicle said. “He lived a bizarre and fascinating life with scandals, taking part in the Battle of Gettysburg, fighting in the Spanish American War, and murdering his wife’s lover, who was the son of Francis Scott Key (a lawyer who wrote the “Star Spangled Banner). He got off the murder wrap by pleading temporary insanity — and that was the first time that plea had been used.” Barnicle said playwright Burns has done a great job fitting Sickels’ quirky history into the North Coast Rep structure and timeframe. “Burns is having a lot of fun with this character trying to find the important moments in his life, and work them into the dialogue as Sickels awaits his Congressional Medal of Honor to be awarded. The play begins about a week or two before the award and people from his past start converging on him, even his former wife

from Spain,” Barnicle said. The production is a comedy and many laughs abound. “Consider this cranky and diluted old guy railing against the world,” Barnicle mused. The cast includes Ben Cole, Frances Anita Rivera, Bruce Turk, Rachel VanWormer and Shana Wride. “I hope when audience members leave the theater, they will want to go home and look up this real-life guy to see that he really did all this stuff,” Barnicle said. u n If you go: “Faded Glory” runs May 28June 22 at North Coast Repertory Theatre, 987 Lomas Santa Fe Drive, Solana Beach. Tickets from $37 at (858) 481-1055 and From 10 Questions, B1 because La Jolla was never incorporated, a central area often associated with a town hall was never developed. Who or what inspires you? For me personally, my children are my greatest inspiration. I believe in teaching children by example, and so each and every day, my children inspire me to want to make a difference in the lives of others so that I can teach them about the importance of doing the right thing and helping those in need. For the past two years, I have had the privilege of serving as board chair for Voices for Children, through which I have met many young people with unbelievable optimism and resilience in the face of overwhelming adversity. Their strength and courage is incredibly inspirational. If you hosted a dinner party whom (living or deceased) would you invite? My husband, Bill, of course; Ted Turner, Andy Grove, Hillary Clinton, David Brinkley, Thomas Friedman, Steve Jobs, Margaret Thatcher and Jon Stewart to make the party fun. What are you currently reading? I typically prefer non-fiction, but am currently reading “Doing Harm,” by my friend and fellow La Jollan Dr. Kelly Parsons. It is an edge-of-yourseat medical thriller. What is it that you most dislike? I feel very strongly that those who

LA JOLLA LIGHT - MAY 22, 2014 - Page B21

can have a responsibility to give back to their community and help others in need. Almost everybody can do something — whether it is donating time, money or talent to a cause. What is your most-prized possession? Most prized are the cards and handmade gifts from my children. I especially love the cards that tell me all the things they love about me. What do you do for fun? I have an almost 9-year-old daughter and a 10-year-old son, so I spend a lot of time at baseball, basketball, volleyball and soccer games and I love every minute of it. When we have free time, we enjoy spending time as a family and with our family friends — my husband loves to cook, so he’ll never pass up the opportunity to entertain. What is your philosophy of life? I am trying to teach my children to enjoy life — to enjoy each day to fullest extent possible — while at the same time never forgetting how incredibly lucky we are and how important it is to help those less fortunate than ourselves. What would be your dream vacation? My husband and I believe in exposing our children, to the extent possible, to very diverse parts of the world, especially developing countries. For many people, our trips would not be dream vacations, but I have loved every minute. We’ve been to Central America, Southeast Asia and Africa. India is next. u
