By Ashley Mackin a Jolla High School’s Class of 2013 knows for a fact that the days of “degree preferred” have been replaced by “degree required.” They are planning accordingly. Approximately 92 percent of the graduating class will attend a two-year or four-year college in the fall. Six seniors, interviewed by La Jolla Light prior to their June 11 graduation, said they see going to college as a privilege, but also a

Having witnessed the recession and spiked unemployment rates, these students view a career as the ultimate goal and plan to use every resource available to them to land a job right out of college. Though generally optimistic about their futures, the students have a heightened awareness about the economic prospects that await them.

La Jolla couple drives supplies to Oklahoma for tornado victims

The Light’s guide to summer events in La Jolla, B1

By Pat Sherman Like many across the country, longtime La Jolla residents Gordon and Maureen Dunfee watched with sadness and disbelief as news crews reported on the devastation in Moore, Okla. On Monday, May 20, a 1.3-milewide tornado ripped through the rural community, killing 24 people and injuring nearly 400 others. Four days later, the Dunfees were

on the road, headed for Oklahoma in a 20-foot U-Haul truck loaded with food, water, medical supplies, clothing and other items for the victims. “The reception was just incredible,” said attorney Gordon Dunfee, who made the more than 2,600-mile, round-trip trek with his wife. The couple arrived early Saturday morning, May 25, delivering more than 300 boxes of supplies to a relief

effort centered at the Gate Church in south Oklahoma City (which borders Moore). “There were probably 40 people there, maybe more, singing ‘America the Beautiful’ and waving flags,” Gordon said. “They were so excited and so thankful.” Gordon gives the bulk of credit to a group of San Diego military wives (and their families) known as the Murphy Canyon Mamas, who began

soliciting donations for the victims via Facebook shortly after the tornado struck. The Dunfees saw a televised report on the Mamas’ efforts and reached out to assist. Under the leadership of former Oklahoman and Navy wife, Melanie Coffey-Voss, and Marine Corps wife, Diana Noschang, the Mamas and their volunteers filled the Dunfees’

Producer of iconic Fleetwood Mac album to speak at Warwick’s By Pat Sherman Ken Caillat says he’s thankful for the year he spent producing Fleetwood Mac’s Grammy Awardwinning pop rock masterpiece, “Rumours.” However, more than 35 years later he still finds it hard to sit back and enjoy hits such as “Dreams” or “Don’t Stop” without recalling the well-documented drama, tension and drug use the band was caught up in while recording the album in 1976. “There was Champagne thrown in people’s faces, yelling, screaming and storming out of the room — and a lot of tears,” recalled Caillat, who has also produced albums for Harry Chapin, Michael Jackson and, more recently, his daughter, pop star Colbie Caillat. “There was a point where we wondered, are we actually going to be able to finish the record? Are people going to be able to hold it together? Are they going to want to hold it together? “I personally had thousands of hours invested in the project and we (Caillat and co-producer Richard Dashut) were concerned that all this great work we had done might just disappear.” Caillat will be at Warwick’s bookstore 7:30 p.m. today (June 6) to read from his new book, “Making Rumours: The Inside Story of the Classic Fleetwood Mac Album.” Released Feb. 4, 1977 (less than a month after it was finished), “Rumours” would go on to sell 44 million copies and include the chart-topping hits, “You Make Loving Fun,” “Go Your Own Way” and “The Chain.” The lyrics, written almost entirely on-the-spot during sessions, reflected the failing personal relationships between

Band members from Fleetwood Mac and studio crew during the making of the ‘Rumours’ LP. band members, most notably the breakup of guitarist Lindsey Buckingham and vocalist Stevie Nicks, and of vocalist-keyboardist Christine McVie and her bassisthusband John McVie. “Everybody wanted to break up with their significant other, for one reason or another, and it all kind of came out in a therapy session with me in the room,” Caillat said. However, amidst the acrimony and mayhem, there was plenty of magic, Caillat said, including Nicks’ haunting howl at the end of the song “Gold Dust Woman,” recorded while Nicks was twirling around the studio with her headphones on for about 20 minutes. “We sat there for two or three hours (waiting) for her to get in the mood, the spirit,” Caillait recalled. “I believe we turned the lights down and lit candles around the studio. She had a little bit of pot, a little bit of Courvoisier (cognac)

Fleetwood Mac’s previous, selftitled album (“Rhiannon,” “Over

My Head,” “Landslide”) was making its way up the charts, and their manager promised a big payoff if the band could keep it together to finish “Rumours.” “He said, ‘If you’re able to duplicate the success of this record, you’ll probably be guaranteed superstars and be rich for life. … They looked at each other and said, ‘Holy crap … I get it.’ They all kind of said, basically, let’s put all our suffering and differences aside and we’ll make a great record” — and dissolve Fleetwood Mac after it’s finished, Caillat said. However, he added, “It wasn’t quite so easy to do, because the lyrics were all about the breakup. So, every now and again, somebody would be working on a song and one of the lyrics would (sting) and another fight would break out.” However, Caillat said, that familiar human drama “was

Diving Director SIO honors James Cameron for support of deep sea exploration By Lynne Friedmann ilmmaker James Cameron stepped out from behind the camera and into the spotlight last week as recipient of the 2013 Nierenberg Prize for Science in the Public Interest, bestowed by Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO). Best known as the director of such box-office blockbusters as “Titanic” and “Avatar,” Cameron is also an ocean frontier explorer who last year achieved a recordbreaking solo dive to the deepest part of the ocean aboard the 24foot long submersible DEEPSEA CHALLENGER, a vessel he helped design and develop in conjunction with SIO.


“When I got into the sub and they bolted it shut, I knew every part of it,” said Cameron. The DEEPSEA CHALLENGER is a science platform with the ability to collect rock, sediment, and biology samples. It is also equipped with lights and a suite of wide-field and macro 3-D high-definition cameras. Privately funded, the top-secret design and construction took seven years to complete and includes a companion “lander” system, an unmanned sampling device that also acts as a baited lure to attract fish and other animals, concentrating them for photography and behavioral studies. Cameron’s descent to 11 kilometers (6.8 miles) took him to the

At this depth, equipment must withstand pressures of 16,300 pounds per square inch, the equivalent weight of “two Humvees on your thumbnail,”

Cameron said. In addition to being a technological and engineering feat, the dive discovered new species and new insights into the essentially unexplored Hadal zone, named after Hades, the Greek god of the

underworld. And, a mysterious realm it is, encompassing an area larger than the landmass of North America. “We stumbled into the 21st century thinking we had explored the world only to find we’d missed

asK aBoUt oUr reBates an entire continent,” Cameron said. Cameron’s contribution to deep sea science continues with his donation of the sophisticated lander device, along with his $25,000 Nierenberg Prize money to kickstart operations of a new “Lander Lab” based at SIO. “As a workhorse, you can’t beat the lander,” Cameron said. Sampling components on the 14-foot, 1,000-pound lander can be configured in numerous ways to address various branches of ocean science, including biology, chemistry, geology and physics. “Scripps Institution of Oceanography is extremely grateful to James Cameron for his generous lander gift, which not only holds historical value, but will prove to be a key resource for many significant deep-sea expeditions in the near future,” said Catherine Constable, interim director of Scripps. SIO plans to put the lander system back to work in the deep ocean as soon as this month. Cameron is donating the DEEPSEA CHALLENGER submersible to Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute in Massachusetts. Transporting it from California affords the opportunity for a “sub tour” of the United States in which school children will be able to get up close to the vessel and speak with

marine researchers. Cameron hopes this fuels interest in STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) education. “The true value of what we did was inspirational,” said Cameron, who as a child, had his own interest in science kindled by the work of undersea explorer Jacques Cousteau. Joking that “I make movies to pay for the dives,” Cameron was asked whether the images he captured underwater will translate to the big screen in “Avatar 2” and “Avatar 3.” “The videos go into the scientific archives. The images go into my imagination,” he said. “And, I’ve seen things in the deep ocean that will inspire me for the rest of my life.” Cameron appears on the cover of the June issue of National Geographic and is profiled in the story: “The New Explorers: The Risks They Take.” The Nierenberg Prize for Science in the Public Interest was awarded to Cameron on May 31. The prize is awarded annually by SIO, is named for the late William A. Nierenberg, a renowned national science leader who served as SIO director from 1965 to 1986. Past Nierenberg Prize winners include Jane Goodall, Sir David Attenborough, J. Craig Venter and Walter Cronkite.

New method for finding therapeutic antibodies


cientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have devised a new, rapid technique for finding antibodies. The method uses a sensitive “reporter system” in test cells, which gives off a fluorescent light signal as soon as an antibody succeeds in activating a receptor. The system is also set up so that each test cell produces a unique antibody, whose effect is confined to that cell. With automation technology, the technique is capable of screening two million test cells per hour. As a demonstration of the new method’s potential, the research team discovered an antibody that potently mimics a key hormone for blood clotting. The antibody has already been licensed to a pharmaceutical company for further development. The technique is described in the journal Chemistry and Biology. News release at

Timing radiation therapy may minimize hair loss Discovering that mouse hair has a circadian clock — a 24-hour growthand-repair cycle — researchers suspect that hair loss from cancer radiotherapy and chemotherapy might be minimized if treatments are given at strategic times of day. Researchers from Salk Institute for Biological Studies, the University of Southern California and UC Irvine worked out the timing of this circadian clock and also uncovered the molecules that signals hair when to grow and when to repair damage. In tests using radiotherapy, mice lost 85 percent of their hair when radiation therapy was received in the morning compared to a 17 percent hair loss when treatment occurred in the evening. Of course, scientists cannot conclude these findings will directly translate to human cancer therapy. But, it is

apparent that body organs and tissues have their own circadian clocks that, when understood, could be used to time drug therapy for maximum benefit. Findings appear in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. News release at Center targets ocean contaminants, human health A new center based at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego will address environmental threats to public health by targeting emerging contaminants found naturally in common seafood dishes as well as manmade chemicals that accumulate in human breast milk. With $6 million in joint NIH and NSF funding, the new Scripps Center for Oceans and Human Health will track natural chemicals known as halogenated organic compounds (HOCs) — whose origins and transmission are poorly understood. [Human-manufactured varieties including toxic polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) that until recently were manufactured and broadly used in commercial products as flame

retardants in the textile and electronics sectors.] HOCs accumulate in marine mammals such as seals and dolphins and have been identified in top predator species that humans consume such as tuna and swordfish, while PBDEs have been linked to a variety of human diseases including cancer and thyroid ailments. Scientists have recently become aware that polybrominated compounds appear to enter the marine environment not only as man-made chemicals but also as naturally produced chemicals synthesized by marine microorganisms and algae. The center will focus on biochemical synthesis pathways in tiny microorganisms all the way up through the marine food web to tracing these compounds into humans. Scientists from the Scripps’s Center for Marine Biotechnology and Biomedicine, San Diego State University’s Graduate School of Public Health, UCSD School of Medicine, and the Salk Institute are also in the research effort.

La Jollan discovers a need for speed at his first road race By David Green Special to The Light

Sporting helmets painted with crash test dummy symbols, driving a car with “rookie” signs clearly visible from every angle and the warning “Rookies: Be afraid. Be very afraid,” Thomas Green, M.D., (a longtime La Jolla resident) tried his hand at navigating in the Nevada Open Road Challenge for the first time on May 19, at age 77. The Nevada Open Road Challenge is a 90-mile rally on a closed highway in northern Nevada starting just south of Lund on Highway 318 and traveling 90 miles south. The cars leave the start at 30 second intervals and attempt to reach the finish, 90 miles later, averaging exactly their stated speed. There are classes for every level of vehicle and driver/navigator team. In this case, Green’s team was in the popular 110 mph class — the fastest rookies are allowed to go. There are brackets for speeds ranging from 95 to 180 mph and an open class for all-out speed. Participants come from all over

Dr. Tom Green, 77, of La Jolla navigates his first car race, participating in the Nevada Open Road Challenge. Courtesy the United States and Canada, and from all walks of life. The comradery is outstanding with many teams having competed for years. The race is headquartered in Ely, Nevada and the town rolls out the hospitality for the racers with a

within 1/10th of a second of their desired average speed at the end. The clouds were dark and dreary at the start of the race. The race officials shortened the gap between the cars to get as many on the road as possible prior to the

start of the rain. As Green’s team left the start, rain began to fall. Fortunately, the course down highway 138 headed south and quickly out of the rain. Many of the navigators are a bit younger than Green, but he was not deterred by that nor the fact that many had rally computers, GPS, and other navigation tools. Green went old school and calculated the times the team should be at specific points on the course so they would average 110 mph, and then used a stopwatch to ensure the team was on time. “A non-race vehicle got on the course just after we passed, so they had to close the race down for a while as the sheriff chased the driver, who then got out and ran before he was caught. Luckily, there were no other incidents,” Green said. While Green’s team did not win its division, they did win the “Rookies of the Event” award. After his first taste of auto racing, Green said he’s planning to participate in the event again, maybe this time sitting in the driver’s seat.

From Graduates, A1 “Nowadays, the more education you get the more job opportunities you have,” said senior and ASB President Daniel Hamilton. The UC Berkeley-bound business major said he plans to go to school, work for a few years, and then go to a different school to earn a Master’s of Business Administration. Achieving not just a degree, but also a graduate degree, is a factor several students see in starting a career. “(My parents) always told me ‘if you want a good job, you have to go to college’ and ‘you’ll get a better job with a higher degree,’” said Lauren Robertson, who will attend San Diego State University to study business and pre-med. She said she will attend graduate school as soon as she finishes her pre-med degree because “I’d like to get right on track with my life and my career,” she said, “I want to start right away.” For Hamilton, the push to get ahead in the game comes from changes in the working world. “I think our country as a whole is more

All plan to attend college in the fall. Ashley Mackin aware of ourselves on an international playing field, as opposed to just San Diego or California or the United States,” he said. “I’m aware

now that I’m going to be competing with people across the world for the best jobs and opportunities, not just my classmates.”

Soon-to-be biology and pre-med major at Indiana State, Billy Penny, agreed. “We have to take advantage of the education

we’ve been given and not make the same mistakes that generations before us have made,” he said. “Some people just sit at home

when they have the opportunity to go to college.” Erin Riley, who will study communications and public relations at Chico State University, said she feels the same way. “I’m lucky to be able to go to a four-year college. It’s an opportunity and you should take advantage of it when you have it.” To fund that education, most of the students are looking into scholarships. While many will get assistance from their parents, Hamilton and Penny are taking out student loans. Noting recent increases in interest rates for such loans, they maintained loans are something they have to do. “I don’t mind taking out student loans to finance my education, I think it’s worth it,” Hamilton said. However, rising interest rates “are definitely a concern. I’m weighing the options, but am optimistic and hopeful that the opportunity I’ll get from the loan will outweigh the cost.” Once they finish college, these students said they would seize every opportunity See Graduates, A9

City workers will construct a plywood barrier fence here to protect harbor seals from noise and visual distraction while the old lifeguard tower at La Jolla Children’s Pool is demolished and a new one is built. Compiled by Pat Sherman

Delay on lifeguard tower Work on the new lifeguard tower at Children’s Pool beach has been delayed slightly. City of San Diego project manager Jihad Sleiman said the city is still waiting for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to issue an Incidental Marine Mammal Harassment Permit before the work can begin. The permit is required in case construction causes an unintended disturbance to seals on the beach. Sleiman said the permit should be issued by the end of this week, with work starting on June 15, beginning with construction of a plywood barrier fence to minimize disturbance to the seals. The fence will be in front of an existing, five-foot-tall chain-link fence enclosing the old lifeguard tower. Sleiman said the National Marine Fisheries Service would determine the height of the fence, though he estimates it will be about eight feet or higher. If the permit is issued on time, demolition of the old tower should begin on June 17, he said. The beach will not be closed this summer during demolition or construction of the new tower, though the seawall will be closed temporarily while a ramp leading to the new public restrooms is constructed.

Hamilton said he would start looking for internships after his first year. “Networking and making the right connections and knowing the right people can help someone be successful,” he said. Riley plans to go where the connections are. “I know the Communications Department has a lot of connections in San Francisco, so living there is a possibility,” she said. Robertson said she started working at local retail shops in high school to gain a head start. “Having some experience is a good way to integrate myself into the workforce because I’ll have had prior work experience,”

“I would like to ask (the public) to kind of bear with us,” Sleiman said. “We’re looking at getting in there, getting the work done, and getting out hopefully within a year, maybe less.”

Cove cleanup pending safety plan San Diego Mayor Bob Filner’s recently instituted plan to cleanse the cliffs above La Jolla Cove of pungent bird guano has met with some minor “contracting hiccups,” according to Keith Merkel, a marine biologist the city hired to oversee the work. Blue Eagle Distribution, the company contracted by the city to apply a bioactive solution to “digest” the guano, must first submit a proposal to the city detailing its plans in greater detail — particularly how it intends to keep its workers safe. “The rocks, with that much guano on them, are going to be slippery and a hazard and a risk,” Merkel said. “We don’t want someone to slip and fall and get hurt.” Blue Eagle will affix ropes to its workers to prevent them from getting too close to the edge, Merkel said. “A fall in the case of this project should be a slip and fall on the rock, not a fall over the edge,” he said. The city has also requested that Blue Eagle prepare a batch of its product for use on the cliffs that does not contain its

she said. “It’ll be a whole different field of work, but it’s still working with people.” Planning ahead makes these students feel more prepared, but it can add to the pressures of being a teenager. Margaret Haerr, future UC Santa Barbara student said, “Everyone comes from different situations and knows what’s good for them, but there is a ton of pressure on everyone to go to big universities when maybe it would make more sense for them to go to a junior college.” One of those taking a slightly different path is Dylan Walsh, who will leave for Naval Academy training on June 25. Having looked into the military for the past several years, Walsh chose the Naval Academy

trademark blue dye. “There’s nothing wrong with the dye,” Merkel said. “It’s a food coloring, but the concern is that it (might) effectively create a blue sheen across the areas as they’re treated. It’s just one more perception issue that we don’t need to deal with.” The workers will next return to the Cove, beginning just north of where the cormorants are nesting, above La Jolla Cove beach. Merkel said he visited the area the workers tested near the La Jolla caves last week. The product, tested as both a spray and foam, appears to be working, he said. “The activity of the microbes starts fairly quickly,” Merkel said. “One of the immediate things that will happen is a deodorizer effect. The consumption of the guano … takes a little bit longer.” Only a chalky residue should remain, he said. “Consider it like an ash left after a fire, like a dust. How much of that is left won’t be clear until it happens, then that could be swept up or it could be left in place.” Merkel said he will meet with Blue Eagle representatives by the end of the week to review their plans and hopefully give them the green light to resume their work, before the end of the month.

because it offers the choice of graduating as a Naval Officer or as a Marine Corps officer, or the option to remain in the service. Walsh said with a five-year commitment, the military would pay for his education. “So I’d probably be in for five or 10 years and have some great experiences, and then get into the civilian sector,” he said. He also plans to get an MBA and if he still serving in the military, the military would pay for that as well. Of life after high school, Walsh said, “Obviously you’re a little bit nervous about it, but in the end, you’re excited to move on from these four years and branch out and do your own thing, so it should be exciting.”

Do they feel the class of 2013 is lucky? If it combines hope with preparedness, then the answer is yes. “There is a lot more that will happen in the future, a lot of good things and a lot of bad things, but with a good college education, you can handle it better and be more prepared,” Robertson said. Hamilton added, “I am a little nervous, there is always anxiety, but I’m pretty confident that I’ll be OK. I’ve had a great upbringing with supportive parents, fantastic teachers and mentors. They helped me and shaped me and got me prepared for whatever the world has in store for me. I’m confident I’ll be able to be successful and live a good, peaceful, well-rounded life.”

Exercise Lowers Risk of Dementia Regular exercise throughout life, especially in midlife, can help prevent the onset of Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia in later years. A recent study measured the fitness level of 20,000 healthy individuals using the treadmill stress test. Follow-up lasted an average of 24 years and participants were assessed for signs of dementia at ages 70, 75, 80 and 85. The results revealed that those over 65 who were physically fit were less likely to develop dementia compared to those who were less fit. Recent data also shows the changes that occur in the brain that can lead to dementia, occur 20 to 30 years before symptoms appear. At Ability Rehab, our physical therapists will perform an evaluation to determine the appropriate treatment plan tailored to your abilities and goals. In addition to slowing the rate of mental decline, exercise can help reduce falls and increase endurance, strength & flexibility. Our physical therapists are specialized in treating both orthopedic and neurological conditions. Call us today to find out how we can help you improve and maintain function of body and mind. P.S. According to the 2008 Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans, adults should engage in 150 minutes of moderate exercise or 75 minutes of vigorous activity per week.

From Tornado Victims, A1

truck with clearly labeled supplies. The Dunfees spent their first night of the journey in Flagstaff, Ariz., then drove straight through to Oklahoma. After delivering their supplies, the Dunfees headed to Moore, accompanied by a young Navy woman named Gabby Jackson, whose grandparents’ home was destroyed. The couple spent the entire day and part of the next helping Jackson’s grandparents and their neighborhood sort through the debris, salvage belongings and clear pathways. “It was just horrific to see the destruction and the power of nature,” Gordon said. “As far as you could see the community was leveled. It’s really just an absolute, stunning miracle that more people weren’t killed.” Though Maureen Dunfee said she experienced several earthquakes growing up in California, nothing prepared her for what she saw in Moore. “We drove through the streets of a neighborhood and all the houses were perfectly fine, and as you drove closer to where Gabby’s grandparents’ house was, there was absolutely nothing left — just smashed cars. What used to be houses were just piles of bricks and sticks. “I was telling Gordon that it made me think of the story of the ‘Three Little Pigs,’ where the big bad wolf just huffed and puffed and blew everything down. It was just surreal.” Still, the couple said the unexpected road trip turned out to be the most fulfilling weekend of their lives. “We were just a minuscule part of the relief effort, but the amount of gratitude was just

overwhelming,” Gordon said. Nearly everyone the couple came into contact with knew someone who had lost their home or a loved one in the disaster, including several Gate Church members whose children died when Plaza Towers Elementary School was destroyed. Miraculously, “There wasn’t any feeling of despair or depression or of bitterness,” Gordon said, noting the Oklahomans’ resiliency and faith in God. “It was all just this kind of pioneer attitude about things that are thrown at you — you deal with it the best you can and you move through it. Their understanding and kind of empathizing with what they were going through was probably the biggest gift we got for our work and our efforts.” Michelle McGhee, assistant volunteer director with the Gate Church, said the efforts of the Murphy Canyon Mamas and the Dunfees were greatly appreciated. “Oklahoma is very patriotic, so it really did mean a lot to have the military wives participate,” McGhee said, noting that the pre-sorted and labeled boxes took a lot of the “guess work” out of the process. Since the Dunfees’ trip, nine more people have been killed in tornadoes and subsequent flooding that swept through Oklahoma on May 31. The dead include two children and seven adults. Relief items and monetary donations are still needed and can be sent directly to the Gate Church. In the coming weeks, victims will require everything from furniture to household goods and toiletries. “Our efforts are ongoing,” McGhee said. “We’re in it for the long haul.”

Summertime and the braces are easy, says Dr. Sunstein By Marti Gacioch Summer is the best time to put braces on a child who needs them, said La Jolla orthodontist Dr. Robert Sunstein, DDS. “Everyone’s schedule is so much more open to the time it takes for the health records, putting the braces on, and then reviewing how to take care of them,” Sunstein said. “Nowadays, braces can be put in place in less than four minutes.” To illustrate the ease and effects of today’s braces, Sunstein created a video showing how to apply and wear braces, which also explains how quickly teeth can be straightened. The video will soon be available on both YouTube and his website, www. Treatment time for braces is usually 10-18 months, Sunstein said, adding it can take a little shorter time for younger children and a little longer

time for older kids. Sunstein said he works with both children and adults. “We do metal braces, clear braces and removable Invisalign to straighten teeth,” he said. “We’re getting to the point that we can take digital images of the teeth and make retainers, crowns and/or bridges without even taking any impressions of the teeth. We can literally take a digital image of the tooth and e-mail it to the lab and they can fabricate a crown, a retainer or an implant.” Over the past 15 years, Sunstein said he’s watched orthodontic technology evolve so rapidly that the best quality techniques are now available to accelerate teeth straightening. Also known as “the Sunny Smile Specialist,” Sunstein works out of two offices, one in La Jolla and the other in Carmel Valley. Both are equipped

with state-of-the art technology, including digital radiology offering minimal radiation. “We’re open six days a week, including Saturdays, and have early morning appointments (beginning at 8 a.m.) and early evening appointments (from 6:30 p.m.) on different days,” Sunstein said. “We even have lunchtime appointments, too, to accommodate our busy patients. I have the best staff in each office, which enable me to go back and forth.” — Dr. Robert Sunstein, DDS: 7575 Eads Ave. Suite 101, La Jolla, (858) 459-3353 and 12395 El Camino Real, Suite 309, Carmel Valley, (858) 755-1551 The Business Spotlight features commercial enterprises that support the La Jolla Light.

In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week and Respect Month in May, La Jolla Karate paid a tribute to area teachers with a special event. Courtesy

La Jolla Karate kids honor their schoolteachers In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week and Respect Month in May, La Jolla Karate paid a tribute to area teachers with a special event. As part of its character development program, “Powerful Words,” karate students invited their teachers to attend a session and watch them perform in class. Instructor Billy Borja said he was thrilled with the turnout. “Our schoolteachers are some of the most important people in our community; they’re

educating our future leaders! We think of it as a privilege to have them visit our studio,” Borja said. “Teachers do so much for these children, but they are sometimes taken for granted. This was a great time to thank them for all that they do.” Teachers from Bird Rock, Torrey Pines and La Jolla Elementary Schools, Gillespie School, Stella Maris Academy and The Children’s School, attended. Each received a certificate and a flower from their student,

as well as a round of applause from everyone watching. Parents and students were excited about teachers coming to see them off school grounds. Dr. Robyn Silverman, creator of the Powerful Words Character Development System used at La Jolla Karate, said: “The community-home-school partnership is critical in providing children and families with a complete education that benefits everyone. Our teachers are such an important

resource. Someone once said, ‘Great teachers teach others to love learning.’” La Jolla Karate’s curriculum provides its students with opportunities that give them the ability to become strong members of the community. — La Jolla Karate, 7838 Herschel Ave. (858) 255-8384.

MESOM dedication time Select La Jollans will get a glimpse of Scripps Institution of Oceanography’s (SIO) Marine Ecosystem Sensing, Observation and Modeling Laboratory (MESOM) on June 14. The invitation-only tour of the building will include a presentation by SIO officials, scientists and UC San Diego Chancellor Pradeep Khosla. A separate tour date will be established for interested community members, SIO said. The 40,000-square-foot research facility angered some residents, who felt that it was constructed at a height greater than what was initially presented by UCSD officials.

House divided over ruling During its June 3 meeting the San Diego City Council was split on whether to grant an appeal of a city-issued environmental determination that allowed for the demolition of Irving Gill’s ‘Windemere’ cottage. The cottage was built in La Jolla during the 1890s and demolished on Dec. 23, 2011 after a historical report commissioned by the property owner found too many aspects of the structure had been damaged or altered. After voting twice, the council was still tied 4-4, with La Jolla’s representative, Sherri Lightner, and council members Myrtle Cole, David Alvarez and Marti Emerald favoring the appeal, and council members Kevin Faulconer, Mark Kersey, Lori Zapf and Todd

The item will be considered again during the June 24 city council meeting.

the demolition also violated CEQA because Windemere was in the process of being considered for a state historic designation. “Everybody agrees that the city had been notified (of the pending historic designation) ‌ just that different divisions in Development Services were not aware.â€?

ore than 1,200 teachers, parents, administrators, staff and community members took our final survey, which resulted in a 98 percent passage rate in favor of our Cluster Partnership Agreement. One item in our agreement involves each site being able to interview all qualified applicants for a teaching position as opposed to the current contractual process where only the five most senior teachers in the district are eligible for an open position. As with any contractual item, teachers at each site would have to submit and receive a waiver from their union, the San Diego Education Association (SDEA), in order for the request to be implemented. To submit a waiver to SDEA, 66 percent of all the certificated employees at each site must first vote in favor of the waiver content. Despite cluster teachers at each site overwhelmingly voting in support of the proposed waiver (with an average approval rate of 84 percent), the SDEA board denied their request. “While we believe this waiver would have expanded the rights of teachers by allowing everyone to apply for an open position in our cluster, our sitting SDEA board unfortunately did not see it that way,” said Julie Latta, Muirlands teacher and co-chair of the Cluster

Kudos for Cove cleanup to Mayor Bob Filner The U.S. House of Representatives loss of Congressman Bob Filner after 10 consecutive caring and successful terms has become the City of San Diego’s gain, especially La Jolla. Bob Filner has done everything he promised as Mayor of the City of San Diego. When every other politician talked the talk about the stench on the rocks at La Jolla Cove, Mayor Filner walked the walk. If you go to Wikipedia and enter “Bob Filner,” you will see how fortunate we are to have Mayor Filner as our advocate. Bob Filner has truly been a breath of fresh air. Howard G. Singer La Jolla

Partnership Agreement Committee. “Despite the disappointing outcome, we’d like to thank each and every cluster teacher for their continued support and engagement during this process.” As for the overall Partnership Agreement, cluster representatives have been asked to postpone submitting the document to the San Diego Unified School Board for approval until after our superintendent designate Cindy Marten shares her vision of Community-Based Education Reform, which should happen in early July, after she officially takes office. The district Partnership Agreement co-chair Fran Shimp and past area superintendent Mike Price have already met with Marten to share the history of the Agreement as well as the inclusive, transparent and unifying process that was used to craft the document. The school board’s current vision of Community-Based Education Reform is explained on the SDUSD website as: “The San Diego Unified School District is committed to a community-based school reform model to elevate all schools within the district to higher levels of student achievement. This model empowers teachers, students, and parents within a cluster community to improve student achievement. “The premise of the community-based model is that true school reform can only be successful if built on a solid foundation across grade levels and collaboration between schools and through active parent engagement in the learning process.” ( aspx?PageID=54) La Jolla educators, parents and community members embraced the school board’s vision and spent three years determining how to implement the best possible educational climate in our cluster. The final agreement is

Growing Rowing

San Diego Club welcoming new members By Rob LeDonne On most days amid the picture-perfect conditions of Mission Bay, you’ll find a bunch of rowers, ages 13-80, who are all part of the nationally-known San Diego Rowing Club, an organization that seeks to impart the wisdom, art and craft of being a worldclass rower. In continuous operation since 1888, the club is now headed in part by Chris Callaghan, the director of rowing and Junior Head Coach, who has a passion for the sport. “Teaching kids is tons of fun,” he explains from the rowing club’s headquarters. “You get to watch people grow and develop, see boys form into men, and have a positive influence on lives in general.” Callaghan didn’t begin rowing until after high school, but after he started as a walk-on while attending Oregon State University, he quickly became a part of the collegiate team, and then the national team for two years. “I was rowing on the East Coast, and when I decided to move back out west I was looking for jobs and the club here happened

San Diego Rowing Club ■ 1 25th Anniversary Party: 5:30-9:30 p.m. June 7, Mission Beach Boathouse ■ Contact: (858) 488-1893 ■ Websites: for adults for junior divisions to have an opening,” Callaghan remembers. He applied, and the rest is history. The Rowing Club is broken up into a variety of teams divided by age. For the high school-aged rowers, Callaghan says “crew is unlike any other after-school activity. You have to practice five or six days a week, and it’s never just a sitting-on-the-bench sport; everyone practices every day.” Training gets even more strenuous before big competitions, and races themselves are “usually a day or two long, and go from seven in the morning to around six at night,

with 60 or 70 races a day.” Most recently, the club traveled to a meet in Tempe, Arizona and came home with 14 gold medals. In addition, for the second week in a row, the junior team won an overall trophy. At another meet in San Diego Bay, the club completed the exact same feat: winning another 14 gold medals and the overall winning trophy. Among the many North County residents that row, Callaghan says he considers Torrey Pines High School senior Harrison Schneider a stand-out and “one of our fastest guys.” After graduating from Torrey Pines, Harrison plans to pursue rowing in college and was recently recruited by Yale University to be a part of its lightweight program. On the girls’ side, rower and Torrey Pines High School senior Gabriella Baracchini is also planning on continuing the sport after graduation, and was recruited by MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) to be a part of its crew team. “On the woman’s side, there are lots of scholarships for college. If you have the

ability for the sport, there’s a good chance you can get a scholarship,” Callaghan said. In recent years, the San Diego Rowing Club has grown in size — a point of pride for Callaghan, who noted that “more and more athletes are becoming more and more competitive.” Perhaps that competitiveness comes from the instructors; aside from Callaghan, Susan Francia is the Junior Women’s Head Coach and also happens to be a two-time U.S. Olympian for rowing. Above all, it’s all about getting fit and having fun. “Fitness is a huge benefit; you won’t see too many overweight rowers. Even if you start out overweight, the more you train your health will improve over time,” said Callaghan, who said they welcome beginners with open arms to their 100-plus year tradition. “It’s a great sport to learn at your own pace. You usually start in a boat yourself, and get a great view to boot since you’re right on the bay. There’s 200 members in our club, so there’s always someone to row with.”

La Jolla Youth Baseball wins bookend championships at Memorial Day tourney By Tom Murphy LJYB Vice President

La Jolla Youth Baseball (LJYB) believes in the old adage “the more, the merrier” when it comes to the Memorial Day Tournament hosted by Tecolote Youth Baseball each year. This could be updated to say “the more, the improved, the merrier” because that’s what happens for every kid who gains post-season experience. Putting on that La Jolla jersey and representing the league is important and tournament play brings out the best in every player: more practice, plus higher level of play, equals improved skills and mental ability. This year LJYB sent 13 teams over to compete — two Pony, two Bronco, four Mustang, three Pinto and two Shetland. The oldest Pony team and the youngest Shetland team brought home the bookend championship trophies. In Pony, La Jolla’s Aladdin was seeded No. 1 and On the Inside Design was No 2. Unfortunately Aladdin was upset by a muchimproved Emerald team that was called at 9-9 tie due to darkness and later finished in an unusual ‘California Tie-break’ that didn’t

break 90 their way. They lost their next game with a depleted roster and were done for the weekend. Meanwhile OTID won their first three games giving up only one run against the Tec Bruins, Mission Bay and Tec Toreros in extra innings. They faced the Toreros again in a fantastic championship game that went down to the wire. OTID was up 8-6 in the last inning, but the bases were loaded with one out when Reed Farley came in relief for Carson Greene to face the No. 3 and No. 4 batters in the order. In an impressive display of guts and power, he blew six straight fastballs past the best hitters on the team for strikeouts to end the game and secure the championship for La Jolla. The Bronco Red team finished with a 1-2 record in the tournament including an 11-3 mercy win over the North City 11s and a very close 2-0 loss to Tec Red who went on to win the Gold division. One swing — a two-run homer — was the difference. Coach Tim Scott said they left a dozen runners on base and hit hard shots

From Baseball, A25 The Mustang Blue team opened with a tough loss, then played their best game against Tecolote Blue where they mounted a big comeback, but came up a run short at the end. With a few roster changes, Coach Fritz Ortlieb will return for another round in the PONY tournament in June. The Mustang 9s may be one of LJYBs most talented teams and with Dave Klimkiewecz at the helm, they were a hot prospect to advance deep into the tourney. They played Tecolote 9s right off the bat and lost one of the tightest games of the weekend 7-6. They handily beat the La Jolla White team (aka Blue 9s) but they had to play the next game right away, facing a rested Tecolote 9s again. In a competitive rematch, they battled back and forth through five innings before Tec 9s took the lead for good. Look for this team to mount a run at the PONY Section title in a couple of weeks. For the first time in memory, LJYB entered a second 9s team managed by Dan Ryan. LJYB entered three Pinto teams into the tournament: Pinto Red was managed by Michael Solis, Pinto Blue was managed by Chris Wahl and Sam Stahl coached the mighty Pinto 7s. All had fun, played hard and honed their skills in preparation for the official PONY tournament starting June 22. The highlight game had to be the Red team’s 21-5 blowout over La Costa Gold in the opening round. The team was led by

Beau Brown, John Hartford, Jacob Campagna, Nate Crater and Julian Solis all had three hits apiece. They played flawless defense and it is hard to picture another team beating them, but it happened twice before the tournament was over.

La Jolla has earned a deserved reputation for developing winning Shetland teams and this year is no exception. For the third consecutive year, these 5- and 6-year-old boys ran the table and brought home the hardware. In his first year back at the LJYB fields, Manager Mac Armstrong recalled his many years playing on the Cliffridge fields

with his father as coach. Now it’s his turn and he didn’t waste time with the Shetland Blue team, defeating Tecolote Blue 9-6, Tecolote White 19-6, North City West 19-3 in their march to the finals. Key plays and hits were made by Hank Hansen, Ryan Popkin, Christopher Monnell, Logan MacLean, Henry Armstrong, Cameron Ouyang, Finn Kjos and Will Mullen. In the championship game, LJ was down 9-6 in the third inning and answered back with a 5-run inning in the bottom frame to take the lead for good. Dillon Spiro made a game-saving catch in the outfield to kill a rally and timely hits were made by Beau Sudberry, Bobby Tyson and Austin Alringer. Congratulations to the 2013 Shetland Champions! Next up: LJYB will send 8-9 teams to the official PONY Sectional Tournament June 22-29. Most games will be played in Ramona. Teams that advance to Regionals and beyond will play in July. PONY has a World Series for each division and our Shetland team reached that level the last two years.

Summer by the Sea


La vie en rose for local artist Judy Judy Judy The desire to help improve the lives of women drew Judy to her profession and inspired her to begin her own La Jolla business in 1991, she said. As the owner of the salon, Judy Judy Judy on Herschel Avenue, Judy was the first to bring hair-loss treatments for women to the area. She was trained in Paris at the Rene Furterer Institute and in London at Vidal Sassoon. Judy Judy Judy Her passion for life, art and beauty are apparent in her studio and shine outside her business as well. Currently, she is vice president of the La Jolla Art Association, and her award-winning fine art is displayed in her studio and throughout La Jolla. For several years, she volunteered for the American Cancer Society’s “Look Good Feel Better” program, where she helped women undergoing cancer treatments improve their self-esteem through hair and makeup sessions.

What brought you to La Jolla? I wanted to open a business and live by the ocean in a small village atmosphere. I have had the pleasure of doing that now for 22 years.

A guide to cool fun for hot times in La Jolla

Red, white and boom will cover the skies above La Jolla during the annual Fourth of July Fireworks.


ere, in alphabetical order, are the entertainment highlights coming your way for the summer of 2013. With art, music, wine and waves joining forces, there’s a variety of unique events planned for La Jollans and visitors alike.

What might you improve in the area? I would like to see all of the business vacancies filled in the Village of La Jolla, see our community thriving, and always be able to find a parking spot. Who or what inspires you? The late Sebastian Capella, my oil painting teacher, inspired me in both my painting and my daily life. He taught me keep painting and never give up. I have a lot of energy, so I’m inspired by colorful and interesting people, places and things. When I see different people or events, I like to paint them in an imaginative, lively and vivid fashion. Right now, I’m using that inspiration to paint wearable silk art for the La Jolla Art and Wine Festival in October. All profits raised benefit the local public elementary and middle schools. These proceeds are for underfunded programs and onsite medical care.

Let Inga Tell You

Just how stupid ARE your parents?


La Jolla Cultural Partners

hen I read recently that new studies suggest that there could be a connection between calcium supplements and heart disease, I officially gave up on medical science. Sorry, science, it’s just over between us. Every teenager at some point ponders the question, “Just how stupid ARE my parents?” The query is usually related to some activity the teen has in mind that they’re fairly clear the folks wouldn’t approve of but which they really (like, REALLY) want to do anyway. So assessing the stupidity quotient of mom and dad is critical to the process. Some close friends have finally achieved their dream of travel now that their last kid is in college. Their 19-year-old daughter, however, is prone to come home for the weekend when mom and dad are out of town and have a few close friends in for what is advertised as an intimate soirée. But somehow, a party always seems to take place instead. Sometimes several. The rule, of course, is: Absolutely NO parties. But what defines “party” really? Number of people? Noise level? Squad cars? It’s such a nebulous term. Considering the number of times she’s been caught out (a neighbor actually

called her parents on their Black Sea cruise at 3 a.m. to report that the daughter’s exceedingly inebriated guests were at that very moment anointing his dahlias with bodily fluids), you think she’d get the idea that having clandestine social gatherings was more problematical than she realized. Before my friends left on their latest 10day trip, they hired an elderly relative’s former caretaker to stay at the house at night while they were gone. No way is their daughter going to party with the caretaker there. Daughter mentions that since finals are approaching, she might come into town to have a weekend of quiet studying away from the noise of her high-density roommate venue. Grades, she reminds her folks, are her utmost priority. Olof and I laughed out loud when we heard this. But the parents had faith. This time they had it covered. Imagine the parents’ dismay when they arrived home and knew fairly quickly their offspring had a party in their absence. Daughter was equally dismayed they found out. She’d been so careful! She made everyone stay inside (those double pane windows are marvelous noise insulators). She had most of the people stay over so

there wasn’t a lot of 2 a.m. departure noise waking up the neighbors. Absolutely no dahlias were harmed. She even removed every bit of trash from the trashcans and buried, er, relocated it elsewhere. How could this have happened? Well, here’s a short list: 1) The caretaker your parents paid to stay at the house? She came by the next morning to return part of her payment saying she couldn’t take money for the three weekend days when you maintained you were preparing for a Zen meditation final which, it goes without saying, required being completely alone. 2) The cheapest place to shop for booze may be your parents’ Costco-stocked garage but this time they actually counted the stash before they left. They had to admit after the fact that they admired your friends’ taste in vodka. 3) Making the beds was a thoughtful touch. Washing the sheets might have been a more thoughtful touch. Recognizing that Mom is a precision bed-maker who does hospital corners and can spot a bed not made by her from 30 yards, priceless. 4) Sanitizing the crime scene by disposing of incriminating evidence in both the big black trashcan and the blue recycle bin might have seemed like a brilliant idea but leaving them echo-ingly empty was equivalent to installing a neon sign screaming “PART-EE!” If you learn nothing else in your college career, it’s that subterfuge is all in the details. 5) The scorched earth policy applied to the trash should have used on the kitchen

instead. Cleaning lady had been there Thursday. Parents home Sunday night. Pushing all those Dorito crumbs behind the counter appliances hoping they’d go unnoticed until next Thursday was a loser from the get-go. Dad, a world-class neatnik, has infrared vision for crumbs. Alas for you, so do ants. 6) While it’s commendable that you have friends from all walks of life, having some of the people from those walks walking around to the back door of an allegedly unoccupied house is bound to attract attention from the neighbors. Yes, it’s profiling. And yes, we know it’s not fair. 7) It was, like, totally savvy of you not to post any pictures of this party on your Facebook page. But your friends posted them on theirs. And tagged YOU. And yes, Mom promised that if you friended her she wouldn’t rag on you for anything she saw there. But some of those pictures might have been a little TMI, especially those lewdly creative uses of Dad’s treasured set of custom cooking utensils. Please say you washed them afterwards. Next trip for parents: two weeks from now. Daughter will be home for the summer. Caretaker has been told she is not to leave the premises at night no matter what excuses are tendered or how much money daughter offers her. Olof and I already have our money on the kid. — Inga’s lighthearted looks at life in La Jolla appear regularly in La Jolla Light. Reach Inga by e-mail at

Rocky’s: A bar with burgers and brews to boast about By Kelley Carlson ocky’s Crown Pub may be a small neighborhood tavern in Pacific Beach, but it’s largely known throughout San Diego for its burgers. Feted in various regional publications, the bar/restaurant, owned by Patricia “Rocky” Rockwood, is a favorite hangout. Catering to the 21-and-older crowd, the employees know quite a few of the customers on a first-name basis, creating an almost “Cheers”-like atmosphere. During a recent evening at the pub, one guest enthusiastically noted that he’s been stopping in for 20 years. Another patron, from northern California, said she and her son, who resides in Pacific Beach, regularly visit Rocky’s when she’s in town; her daughter also insists on going there when she visits from Alaska. “Everyone seems to love it so much, they come back,” said Jerry Brim, a manager. There’s no pretentiousness at Rocky’s; it’s very down-to-earth and laid-back. There’s a bar that runs nearly the length of the establishment and about a half-dozen tables in the dining area. No matter where people sit, they can watch a sporting event, with nine flatscreens showing a variety of games. The sounds of game buzzers intermingle with the pub’s music, which ranges from

Since the tavern has limited seating, it can get a bit crowded at times (especially 6:30-9 p.m.) but the fare is worth the wait to many. The menu is simple: burgers and fries served in a red basket.

Rocky’s employees Mikey Schindler, Jerry Brim and Jim Johnson made fresh daily. “The burgers must be good; (the customers) don’t come in to see me,” Brim joked. Brim suggests first-timers order the 1/3-pound burger, as the 1/2-pounder might be too much food. They can always get the larger size next time, he added. To accompany the burgers, there is icecold beer, which is especially refreshing on a warm, humid day, when both of the building’s doors are open and the ocean breeze is flowing through.

Crash Cooking Course

Gustatory gifts for the graduate


oncerned parents of college-bound grads want culinary guidance to pass along to their kids. Here’s a primer to help put the skids on the Freshman 15 and those disastrous dorm diets in general, with some studentfriendly gadgets and simple, healthful recipes to fuel the brain and the brawn. Hamilton Beach Panini Maker

Study Buddies College students would welcome kitchen gizmos to simplify meal preparation, and produce food and beverages to fortify and keep them alert. Start with an espresso-maker for ‘round-the-clock pick meups, especially during midterm and finals weeks. The coffee bean is an antioxidant warrior packed with vitamins and minerals. Its brain-friendly caffeine is linked to boosting short-term memory and increasing focus and problem-solving skills. For teetotalers, offer a stainless steel electric teakettle for invigorating brews. Other good choices include an air popcorn-maker for high fiber, a panini press to use for hearty, protein-packed grilled sandwiches, a powerful smoothie blender that can handle frozen and uncut fruits for a dose of antioxidant phytonutrients, and a sieve that attaches to a pot’s lip for easy draining and straining pasta and veggies.

These four meals a-go-go get an ‘A’ in my cookbook.

1. Express Eggplant Caviar Ramen Review Ramen noodles, a dorm staple for decades, comes in organic and GMO-free versions. For an antioxidant boost when the immune system gets a little ragged from exam cramming and all-nighters, toss in broccoli florets, bell pepper slices, shredded cabbage and a squirt of lemon juice. For some new twists, crush raw noodles and sprinkle on mandarin chicken or green salads for a crispy crunch, or blend cooked noodles with marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese for an Italian riff; peanut sauce for a take on Thai; a yoghurt dill sauce for a Mediterranean flavor; or prepare Ramen traditionally with your favorite healthy protein (scallops, shrimp, chicken breast). Spam Protection Another dorm delight, this canned classic gets its name from its blended “Spicy Ham” ingredients: a gelatinous chunk of pig shoulder combined with salt, sugar and sodium nitrite. For die-hard Spam fans there’s better versions, including Spam Lite with 33 percent fewer calories and 50 percent less fat, Low Sodium Spam, and Oven Roasted Turkey Spam (made from turkey breast with the lowest fat and sodium content) makes it the healthiest Spam alternative.

true or false? The name “Kiwanis” means “we trade” or “we share our talents.” True. It was coined from a Native American expression, Nunc Kee-Wanis. Kiwanis International is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to serving the needs of children. Kiwanis was founded in 1915 in Detroit, Mich. In the early years, members focused on business networking but in 1919, the all-male organization changed its focus to service. On July 7, 1987, it voted to allow women to join.

ain a deeper understanding of works on view in the new exhibition, “Approximately Infinite Universe,” when artists Chitra Ganesh, Victoria Fu and Saya Woolfalk use their work as a launch pad to explore broad topics in contemporary art. This program invites participants to join in the conversation, moderated by exhibition curator Jill Dawsey, 1-3 p.m. Sunday, June 9 at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, 700 Prospect St. La Jolla. Free for members, students and seniors with paid museum admission; $5 for non-members with admission. (858) 454-3541. “Approximately Infinite Universe” (up through Sept. 1) is inspired by science fiction, with its exploration of other possible worlds, its dislocation of spatial and temporal trajectories, and its challenges to distinctions between human and alien, self and other. The 17 artists featured understand art as a vehicle for time travel, employing an array of mediums as means to move backward and forward through time. Their work re-visions fraught histories and en-visions utopian futures, with the effect of gaining insight into the complexities of the present. Gallery hours: 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.

Beat the Blues As artist Judy Judy Judy explains it, “I was at Croce’s Friday night, listening to Lady Dottie and the Diamonds. On her break, she was telling me about her family, she is one of 13 from Alabama, and left home when she was young to go to New York. “She was saying how living at home was, ‘nothin’ but the blues,’ and I laughed and told her I’m doing an art exhibit with some other artists at the La Jolla Art Association, called ‘Nothin’ But the Blues.’ “Well, one thing lead to another when she said, ‘Why don’t I sing with my piano man, Joe Guevara at the art reception?’ “So along with art that is inspired by the blues, Lady Dottie will be singing the blues. What a great way to end a Sunday afternoon, looking at art and listening to the blues while sipping a glass of wine.” The public reception is 5-7 p.m. Sunday, June 9, at the Art Association galleries, 8100 Paseo Del Ocaso, in the Shores.

Douglas Sills (Walter Burns), Jenn Lyon (Hildy Johnson) and Donald Sage Mackay (Bruce) in ‘His Girl Friday,’ adapted by John Guare. Kevin Berne play’s climax. Sills is great in his thunderous dictates as an editor who needs to get it right or when insisting Hildy can’t leave to get married when the story of her life is at her fingertips. Lyon is spot-on in every situation. From the dismissing of her fiancée to sending his meddling mother (Mary Beth Peil) on a wild goose chase that lands her in jail, Hildy remains at the typewriter rarely missing a beat. As the hapless couple fighting for justice and the American ideals of life liberty and happiness, Lind and Kerr are excellent. Kerr easily draws sympathy for Earl’s story and Lind heightens the plausibility of Earl’s innocence through her compassion and desire to bring out the truth behind the allegations against him.

The 1940’s “His Girl Friday” was part of the screwball comedies of the era characterized by a female who dominates the relationship with the male lead. Each featured fast-paced dialogue, half-baked situations, and plot lines about dating and marriage. Guare’s adaptation maintains these elements, but also adds some thoughtful talk about the never-ending struggle of people to be free from tyranny and corruption. If you’re familiar with the script, you know the crucial set piece is a roll-top desk. Scenic designer Robert Brill purposefully integrates that desk into his pressroom, which helps draw the audience further into the antics.

La Jolla Methodist Church History ■ May 28, 1953: Seven Methodists at Casa de Manana decide to form a church in La Jolla. In December, the San Carlos substation, now the church’s iconic Chapel, is purchased. The terminal becomes the first Sanctuary and the waiting room for the trolley becomes the Sunday School, Fellowship Hall, and church kitchen. ■ Membership growth necessitates purchase of the La Plaza Restaurant and El Toro Bar facilities adjacent to the Chapel. Leases are not up for five more years, so the church is in the precarious position of owning an establishment that dispenses alcohol! ■ In 1959, the restaurant and bar facilities are remodeled by church members. La Plaza Restaurant becomes the Sanctuary for the next 10 years. ■ The Christian Education Building is added in two phases in 1962 and 1964, and the present Sanctuary and Memorial Hall are built in 1969. ■ By the end of its third year, the church is dedicated and the Women’s Society and Sunday School are formed under the direction of the first fulltime pastor, Rev. Thomas Denman. ■ The sponsorship of missionaries begins, along with the birth of the annual church rummage sale, which continues today after 57 years. The youth group and the first Vacation Bible School are added. ■ In 1964, Boy Scout Troop 506 is founded and chartered by the Church. The Troop continues to meet Monday nights in Fellowship Hall and has promoted more than 75 young men to the rank of Eagle Scout. ■ The LJUMC Nursery School has served area families for more than 40 years. The library (which once housed El Toro Bar) has hundreds of books for children and adults, and is used by Nursery School families and church members alike. Both the school and library are the living legacy of Martha Bullock, as is the annual Christmas Workshop that hosts 100 children. ■ The church’s music program not only serves the congregation on Sunday mornings, but offers the community a quarterly Family Concert Series and three yearly Chancel and Dorian Bell Choir concerts. ■ LJUMC shares its campus with the public. The mission-like Chapel is open for prayer from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Monday-Friday. All are invited to stop and smell the roses in the landmark rose garden, the legacy of first pastor, Rev. Denman.

Longtime La Jolla United Methodist Church member Joan Christensen is crowned Queen of the Diamond Jubilee celebration. La Jolla United Methodist Church has 240 members who attend services at 6063 La Jolla Blvd. Sunday Services are 10 a.m. (858) 454-7108. Courtesy

A Petition for Probate has been filed by Norma Hirsh in the Superior Court of California, County of San Diego. The petition for Probate requests that Norma Hirsh and Howard Fingert, MD, jointly be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. The petition requests the decedent’s will and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A hearing on the petition will be held in this court as follows: Date: June 11, 2013 Time: 11:00 a.m. Dept.: PC-1. Address of court: same as noted above. If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative as defined in section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want

to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. You may examine the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk. Attorney for Petitioner: Robert K.

Secret Garden Tour inspires visitors L

a Jolla Historical Society presented its 15th annual Secret Garden Tour of La Jolla on May 18 with six spectacular blooming yards open for viewing and a seventh reserved for guests on the Platinum Tour. The sunny day was perfect for the show, which also featured artists and musicians celebrating spring along the way. For the first time, Wisteria Cottage hosted a tour-related boutique that further served to inspire guests looking for home and garden ideas. Betty Vale was the Honorary Chair of the event with co-chairs Pam Filley and Sue Kalish. Proceeds from the afternoon will be used for Historical Society programs. —Susan DeMaggio
