Mayor calls Cove cleanup a ‘success’ By Pat Sherman The first phase of the city’s effort to eradicate the odor at La Jolla Cove is a success, said San Diego Mayor Bob Filner. In a statement released Thursday, June 27, the mayor’s office said Blue Eagle Distribution, the contractor hired to cleanse the excrementcovered rocks, was able to substantially reduce odors related to bird guano deposits — that were between two and three inches thick in some areas. A more extensive, second phase of the cleanup is scheduled to begin in early August. “There has been an amazing change since we got started out here,” Filner said, in the statement. “I told the guys from Blue Eagle that I wanted this See Cove Cleanup, A20

Filner ramps up enforcement against seal harassment and unpermitted beach signs By Pat Sherman San Diego Mayor Bob Filner has issued a memorandum strengthening and clarifying existing city policy on the enforcement of illegal harassment or disturbance of harbor seals at Children’s Pool beach. Following issuance of the memo, several people contacted the La Jolla Light to complain about the policy. Filner’s May 14 memo to Police Chief William Lansdowne and Park and Recreation Director Stacey LoMedico states that the city will continue to enforce municipal code 63.0102(b)(10), “which makes it unlawful to disturb any animal on a city beach.” The code does not require that the harassment be intentional or result in harm to the animal, only that the animal’s “tranquility or composure” be disturbed

(such as when people cause seals on the beach to flush into the water). “The mayor stating the position is new, but the fact that no intent is necessary is not new — that’s been in the law the whole time,” San Diego Police Northern Division Captain Brian Ahearn said. What is new, said Ken Hunrichs, president of the pro-beach access group, Friends of the Children’s Pool, is the mayor’s “misapplication of a municipal code ordinance” to enforce the disturbance of seals. Hunrichs said it is a law enforcement function “strictly reserved to the federal government unless specifically delegated to a state agency.” He added, “The Mayor is stepping beyond his authority when he asks city personnel to

Big turnout for opening of La Jolla Goodwill store By Pat Sherman Hundreds of people attended the grand opening of La Jolla’s new Goodwill store at 7631 Girard Ave. on Thursday, June 27, with customers lined up down the block at 9 a.m. waiting to shop for resale bargains. “I’m just in awe of what some women are buying,” said Pacific Beach resident Carol Klein, who was second in line when the store opened at 10 a.m. “One lady had a cart full of clothes. She said she has an online business, so she’s buying and then reselling.” Though Klein emerged from the store at about 11 a.m. with only a metal magazine rack to hold her iPad, others such as La Jolla resident Francisca Zamora exercised less restraint, filling an entire shopping cart with clothing for her family. “The prices are great,” said Zamora, noting that she doesn’t normally shop at thrift stores, but read about the store in La Jolla Light and arrived early for the opening. “The people are not rude, which I like — even the people shopping,” she added. Beth Forsberg, vice-president of operations for Goodwill Industries of San Diego County, said the store hopes to set itself aside with its customer service.

La Jolla resident Francisca Zamora waits to pay for a cart full of clothes she purchased for her family during the grand opening. “We’ve been working very hard to make the customer experience top of the line … a little more relationship (centered), where people can come in and say, ‘Let me know when you get my size in,’” Forsberg said. “In our regular stores we don’t do that. … I think we’re definitely going to try and listen to the community and what they want.” Forsberg said the store’s rear donation center, which opened weeks before the retail store fronting Girard Avenue, is receiving more high-end

donations than other locations. “We got some of the top brands in the nation through the back door yesterday — Prada, Gucci — I couldn’t believe it … a lot of brandspanking new men’s and women’s shoes in there … and a lot of highend summer sandals,” she said. Shoppers included people from around the county and a number of tourists, such as Denver’s Nancy Williams-Johnson. Following her shopping excursion, Williams-Johnson held a white plastic bag filled with clothes in front of her like a trophy.

“I paid $84 for all this — I mean, name brand, really good stuff … and I got the senior discount, too,” Williams-Johnson exclaimed. “Now I have to figure out how I’m going to get it in an already overstuffed suitcase.” A man driving down Girard Avenue in a white SUV looked over at the crowd still waiting to enter the store nearly two hours after it opened, and shook his head in disbelief. “I don’t think most men understand this,” Williams-Johnson said. “My significant other won’t understand. He’ll be mortified. He’ll go,

‘You mean you didn’t go to the Del Coronado? You didn’t go to the beach? You went to a Goodwill?’ ” Though the store also carries men’s clothing and shoes, about 80 percent of those in line during the opening were female. “It’s kind of a woman thing,” Williams-Johnson said. “It’s the thrill of the hunt. You don’t know what you’re going to find, you don’t know if it’s going to be in your size, but it’s going to be a bargain, and it’s going to be wonderful.”

The bus stop next to Chase Bank on Girard Avenue may also become a trolley stop if the Old Town Trolley company gets the go-ahead from MTS. Ashley Mackin

Traffic board backs Old Town Trolley stop By Ashley Mackin The La Jolla Traffic and Transportation board (T&T) gave its unanimous approval to four proposals on June 27, including Old Town Trolley’s request for a letter supporting its proposal to use a Metropolitan Transit System (MTS) bus stop at 1021 Silverado Ave. for a new tourist tour of La Jolla program. Though not present at the meeting, representatives from Old Town Trolley previously asked for the letter because it would help their case to have community approval before appearing before MTS to request the stop. Trolley representatives explained to the T&T board that the trolley would drop off and pick up passengers, pausing for about one minute or less per round. T&T Chair Todd Lesser said any potential conflicts regarding Old Town Trolley dropoffs and MTS scheduled stops would be handled between the two organizations. n Municipal Code parking change: The board also voted to support a request by residents of La Jolla Shores Drive to have a portion of the San Diego Municipal Code adjusted. Board member Patrick Ryan explained that residents on the west side of

The trolley would drop off and pick up passengers, pausing for about one minute or less per round.

La Jolla Shores Drive were getting tickets for parking on certain parts of their own driveways because a segment of the driveway (from the curb to a predetermined line) is considered public right-of-way as the road was supposed to be wider. Tickets are issued along this segment as if the parking were on a sidewalk. With signatures from all the residents as a foundation, the T&T board voted to support a change in the code to allow residents and their guests to park in their own driveways. The board requested that code language specify that only residents and their guests may park in the designated areas, and not the general public. n Street closure requests for the End of Summer Fire Run, Aug. 25 (with proceeds benefitting the San Diego Fire and Rescue Foundation) and the La Jolla Christmas Parade and Holiday Festival, Dec. 8, received board approval because they were for the same streets as in previous years with no complaints from residents. n Next meeting date: The T&T board typically meets at 4 p.m. on fourth Thursdays at the La Jolla Recreation Center, 615 Prospect St.

TREATING OFFICE WORK PAIN Athletes aren’t the only ones who turn to physical therapists for treatment. The fact is that office workers also suffer neck and shoulder pain caused by repetitive office tasks and computer work. Fortunately, strength exercises have proven to be successful in treating chronic or frequent pain in the neck area, as well as tightness and tenderness of the upper trapezius muscle. Neck pain is often due to decreased strength, joint dysfunction, poor postural control and improper mechanics in the upper back and neck. It is important to create good ergonomics in the office setting and perform exercises and stretches specific to correcting postural mechanics and improving strength. The therapists at Ability Rehab are specialists in treating neck pain associated with improper postural and joint mechanics, decreased muscle strength and poor office ergonomics. Our therapists will conduct a thorough evaluation to assess muscle strength, range of motion, joint and postural mechanics and provide education on possible office space adjustments.Your therapist will create a comprehensive treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. P.S. Each treatment plan includes an individualized exercise program complete with pictures. Call Ability Rehab to schedule an evaluation today!

A rendering of where the new trail will go and how it connects to other Scripps Institution of Oceanography trails in La Jolla. Courtesy

Coastal Conservancy grants to fund trail on SIO campus By Ashley Mackin The California Coastal Conservancy at its June 20 meeting in Sacramento awarded a $250,000 grant to the Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) for the construction of a new trail segment on the SIO campus. Scripps will also contribute $100,000 to the project. After Coastal Conservancy staff reviewed plans for the trail over the course of several months, it made the recommendation for grant approval to the board, which was accepted. The trail will complete the network of walking paths already in place at Scripps, called the Scripps Coastal Meander, in accordance with the California Coastal Trail program. Project Manager Ken Hall said the program is supposed to be a way to walk along the coast from the Oregon border to Tijuana, Mexico. “Right now in our region, the California Coastal Trail is the beach essentially. From La Jolla Cove, it follows the sand past Scripps up to Blacks Beach. However, it is not fully accessible at high tide,” he said. The new trail will go along the bluffs atop the beach area and connect two observation points — one located at Biological Grade at Naga Way and another that will be constructed as a result of this grant. “This trail proposal was seen as an important link in connecting an area that

has some infrastructure in place (the observation point) and parking, including ADA-compliant spaces,” Hall said. “This is a way for someone — whether coming from the beach and wanting to walk the upland route or someone just looking for a viewpoint who wants to get out of their car — to experience a little bit of the coastal terrace habitat and some amazing views.” Additionally, with the opening of the new MESOM laboratory, Hall said there was a need for a new pedestrian walkway. He explained that currently, the best walking route is Biological Grade, which is also the best vehicular access route for the MESOM building. When the lab opens, vehicular traffic will increase, he said. Now that the project can move forward with finances secured, SIO will finalize the construction documents and find the right contractor, but because the trail would essentially be built by hand, their hope is to work with a youth organization. Hall said they would like to engage California Conservation Corps or Urban Corps of San Diego County. “Because we want to be sensitive of the habitat, the design of the trail is such that it can be built without putting any heavy machinery onto the hillside,” he said. Depending on how quickly a contractor is found, Hall said construction should start in October and be completed in January 2014.

Renderings of two of six proposed trolley stations that are part of the Mid-Coast Corridor Transit Project expansion, which will bring light rail to east La Jolla and UTC.


Town Council explores transit-expansion plan La Jolla Town Council while the other one goes through and that really constrains the amount of capacity we could put on that rail line,” Kosup said. In addition, four high-occupancy express lanes will be added to the middle of Interstate 5 in North County, which Kosup said will require additional land for the addition of retaining walls in certain spots. Asked whether that acquisition of space would involve eminent domain, Kosup said about 40-50 residences will need to be relocated. “The rest might be just partial acquisitions or encroachments,” he said. “We go through a very fair process. We pay

fair market value, and we have a relocation program.” Kosup said a bike and pedestrian trail running along state Route 56 that currently ends at the I-5 will be expanded west to the beach, tunneling under I-5. Caltrans will seek a special coastal development permit from the California Coastal Commission next year to cover the project for the next 40 years, with assurances with each phase of the work conforms to the original plans. “That was important, because we don’t want to start building things and then not be able to finish them.” Kosup said. “From the Coastal Commission’s standpoint, they want assurances that we live up to our promises.” In addition, the project includes replacing the five-lane overpass bridge at I-5 and Genesee Avenue with a 10-lane bridge to relieve congestion.

Mid-Coast trolley project The expansion of the trolley line into the La Jolla area is expected to be under

construction by 2015, with service beginning in 2018. Six trolley stops are planned near La Jolla as part of the Mid-Coast Corridor Transit Project light rail expansion, including: Nobel Drive at La Jolla Village Square shopping center; the Veterans Administration Medical Center at 3550 La Jolla Village Drive; Pepper Canyon (UCSD west campus); Voigt Drive (adjacent Scripps Memorial Hospital); Executive Drive and Genesee Avenue; and Westfield UTC mall. La Jolla Parks & Beaches board president Dan Allen said the La Jolla Community Plan calls for transportation to get La Jollans from the Village to trolley stations along I-5, though he said there he hasn’t seen such a provision in current Mid-Coast plans. “There’s absolutely no plans for shuttles or connections or any facilitation of feeders into the trolley line,” Allen said. “What they told me was that the way to get up to the trolley was to take the No. 30 bus, which right now wiggles all the way through La Jolla Shores, crosses the UCSD campus

By Pat Sherman During its June meeting the La Jolla Town Council (LJTC) heard a presentation on $6.5 billion in planned North County transportation improvements to occur in phases during the next 40 years — as well as the closer-at-hand expansion of the San Diego trolley line to east La Jolla, UTC and the UC San Diego campus. Caltrans Interstate 5 Corridor Director Allan Kosup told LJTC trustees the 27-mile North Coast Corridor project, spanning from La Jolla north to Oceanside, will include highway, rail, bike and pedestrian improvements, as well as $200 million for restoration of lagoons and designation of natural habitat. Between the freeway and rail system, 700,000 people currently travel the North Coast Corridor each day, he said. About 50 percent of the rail line, which is currently single track, will be double-tracked — work which is already underway in Sorrento Valley. “When those trains come to the singlelane portions, one of them sits on the side

Dershowitz also noted that the city is sending fewer permit applications to the La Jolla Planned District Ordinance (PDO) committee for review. “Reviews by the city are considered to be ministerial in many instances, which are basically just a remodeling of what was there before, and are not being referred to the PDO for our own review,” he said. “What that means is that we often disagree after the fact with what the city had approved in La Jolla. … Certainly, that’s not the best way to have to proceed.” However, Dershowitz said PDO members are pleased with a new program initiated by the city that uses trained volunteers to assist with code compliance — a program the PDO hopes to be involved with, he said.

Final upgrades approved for WindanSea Beach La Jolla

Parks and Beaches By Ashley Mackin At its June 24 meeting, the La Jolla Parks and Beaches (LJP&B) committee approved the final phase of the Design, Guidelines, Erosion Control and Maintenance Plan for WindanSea Beach; considered removal of the guardrail at the Cove, and discussed problems with peddlers at Scripps Park. Upgrades for WindanSea Landscape architect Jim Neri presented his plans for improving the area known as the S-Curve, from the south end of WindanSea parking lot to Playa del Sur, seeking LJP&B endorsement to proceed with construction documents. Other completed installments of the project, which was approved in 1999, include improved beach access points at Winamar and Palomar avenues, a new stairway at Westbourne Avenue, and 19 new benches. “This is the last remaining piece (of WindanSea) that I would consider to be dilapidated,” Neri said. There are currently older posts and rusty chainlink fencing,

stairs to nowhere, a gap between the sidewalk and hillside, and other spots where improvements need to be made. Neri said he plans to use leftover funds from previous installments to help upgrade the posts with new chains to better outline the trails and install new seating. He also plans to replace the stairs at Playa Del Sur, of which he said, “If you go to the end of them, you almost fall off the edge of the rocks.” His plan for the sidewalk, which has gaps of varying widths that are considered a tripping hazard, is to fill in the space with decomposed granite that will drain easily and be ADA-compliant, and add between 8 and 18 inches of sidewalk width to the area. The project will be privately contracted and labeled a “replacement project” to avoid unnecessary permits and the need for an Environmental Impact Report. A unanimous vote to approve the plans provided Neri with the go-ahead. Cove guardrail conversation Although San Diego Lifeguards say the guardrail at the Cove is important to insuring public safety, the board continued discussion on the issue of its removal. Some members contend that once the rocks at the Cove are cleaned from animal excrement, opening the guardrail to allow human access to the cliffs would deter the animals from coming back and minimize the need for future cleanup costs. The board sent the suggestion to the city's

The rusty chain, deteriorating posts and the gap between the sidewalk and hillside will be repaired under architect Jim Neri’s plan. Park and Recreation department and received a response from lifeguards, which read, in part, “from a safety perspective, the Lifeguard Division does not see a need to change the current configuration.” From a logistic perspective, the board sees it differently. LJP&B Chair Dan Allen said he researched the rules in place under Proposition 51 (which passed in 1986) that “changed the rules for liability for cities in cases where they get sued for negligence.” “Since that proposition passed, the need to have a complete fence is no longer as strong because people cannot fall over and … collect as much (from the city),” he said. The guardrail was installed in the late 1970s (or possibly the early ‘80s), when the city was highly susceptible to costly lawsuits. Under Prop 51, the city would still be

responsible for “economic damages,” such as medical expenses or earning loss, but less responsible for “non-economic damages,” such as pain and suffering. The amount of non-economic damages paid reflects the percentage of fault for which the victim is responsible. “The law has changed so the city can open the fence without exposing itself to as much liability,” Allen concluded. Peddling in the Park LJP&B Chair Allen said he is coordinating a July presentation to the committee by various city department representatives to explain the rules and permits for operating vending tables at Scripps Park. The board next meets 4 p.m. July 22 at La Jolla Rec Center, 615 Prospect St. For more information, visit

From Enforcement, A1 enforce a local ordinance about mistreating animals when dealing with seals.â€? Ahearn said police maintain discretion on whether to issue a citation to those who disturb seals. “We have incorporated the mayor’s position into our protocol — there’s no doubt about it — but I think the mayor’s office and the mayor understand that these are case-by-case examples. ‌ The officers have to conduct an onscene investigation and make a determination as to whether there should be enforcement.â€? The memo, which says police will respond to all requests for assistance at Children’s Pool, further clarifies the position of San Diego Police’s Northern Division. Some of those requests are coming from people hired by the Western Alliance for Nature (WAN) conservancy to monitor the new

Seal Cam, which provides roundthe-clock, streaming footage of Children’s Pool beach. The camera operators include many members of the pro-seal group, La Jolla Friends of the Seals. Ahearn said he could not say whether the volume of seal harassment complaints has increased, though he admitted there is now an “additional layer� of people calling in with complaints. “Not only do we have people calling at the scene from time to time, but we also have these folks that are monitoring cameras remotely that are seeing what they believe to be violations,� he said. A now year-round guideline rope spanning Children’s Pool beach meant to keep people 50 feet back from harbor seals has drawn the ire of divers and people who wish to exercise their legal right to access the shoreline. Though it is legal to be on either side of the guideline rope, beach

access advocates say the mayor’s policy discourages all diving and beach use when it states: “If someone is engaged in ‘normal beach activity’ — including activities in the water — and that activity results in a disturbance (i.e. flushing of the seals), then the disturbance is unlawful.� Pacific Beach resident Cheryl Aspenleiter said the group she was with was detained by officers and asked for identification, after a tourist took a flash photograph of a seal lying on the beach from 15 feet away. She said the seal did not flush into the water as a result. “The tourists had been warned by others in my party not to stray too close to the seals; our group did nothing wrong,� Aspenleiter said, alleging that an officer responding to the incident climbed over the seawall railing and shone a light on the seals that caused 15-20 of them to flush into the water.

Ahearn confirmed that police responded to two reports of seal harassment on June 21 — one reported by a Seal Cam operator and one reported by a citizen at Children’s Pool. One involved five people, and other about 50 people. “One was reported as people touching the seals; one was reported as seals (being) hesitant to come out of the water because of the people on the beach,� Ahearn said. “In both circumstances the officers did not witness any violations.� Early June 15, Seal Cam operators did record footage of two men intentionally chasing seals into the water. Ahearn said such “videotaped evidence� from Seal Cam operators has been “very helpful.�

it’s illegal (for the public) to post signs or attention seeking devices at the Children’s Pool — on the sand and up top,� Ahearn said. Earlier this year the mayor attended a court hearing for seal activist Bryan Pease, who was accused of stealing a beach access proponent’s sign, which was posted on the sand. In court, Filner stated that the sign was illegal to begin with. Pease was nevertheless fined and given community service for the offence. “Before the interpretation was very loose but it seems like the city attorney’s office is very comfortable moving forward with those kinds of citations regarding the illegal signs,� Ahearn said. Hunrichs argues that a flag emblazoned with the word “open� on it, which Friends of the Children’s Pool uses to alert the public that the entire beach is open, is exempt from permit requirements per current city code.

Research Report LynnE Friedmann

Sorting out water in the West


ncreasing demand for water from the Colorado River to satisfy the needs of 30 million people prompts concerns about how to manage the resource in coming decades. Estimated declines of future flows range from 6 to 45 percent, by 2050. A new analysis by eight institutions, including Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego, puts all the scientific studies in a single framework and identifies how they are connected. While the paper does not determine a new estimate for future flows, it does provide policymakers and the public with context for evaluating the current numbers. For example, the 6 percent reduction estimate did not include some climate model data that predicts a dryer West. And the 45 percent decrease estimate relied on models that could not capture

the effects of topography in the headwater regions. A trend toward warmer temperatures in the region means more evaporation and thus less water flow. Changes to precipitation are less certain, but climate change will likely decrease the rain and snow that drains into the Colorado basin. It also turns out that the early 20th century, upon which water allocation in the basin is based, was a period of unusually high river water flow. The paleoclimate record — using data from tree rings and other sources — indicates that the Colorado River has experienced severe droughts in the past and suggests it will do so again, even without humancaused climate change. — The study appears in the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society.

Almost half of the mobile apps running on Apple’s iOS operating system access the unique identifier of the devices where they’re downloaded, according to a UCSD study of 130,000 users of “jailbroken” iOS devices, where users removed restrictions that keep apps from accessing the iPhone’s operating system. In addition, more than 13 percent of mobile apps access the devices’ location and more than 6 percent the address book. With this in mind, researchers in the UCSD Department of Computer Science and Engineering developed an app called ProtectMyPrivacy (PMP) that detects what personal information and data other apps are trying to access. PMP enables users to selectively allow or deny access to this information on an app-byapp basis — for example, a map app accessing the location of a device to provide driving directions. — More information at 1coUp9J

Restoring brain connections in Alzheimer’s The first experimental drug to boost brain synapses lost through Alzheimer’s

disease has been developed by researchers at Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute. The drug, called NitroMemantine, combines two FDA-approved medicines to stop the destructive cascade of changes in the brain that destroy the connections between neurons, leading to memory loss and cognitive decline. The decade-long study, conducted in animal models as well as brain cells derived from human stem cells, mapped the pathway that leads to synaptic damage in Alzheimer’s. Amyloid beta peptides, which were once thought to injure synapses directly, were found instead to induce the release of excessive amounts of the neurotransmitter glutamate. Normal levels of glutamate promote memory and learning, but excessive levels are harmful. NitroMemantine mitigated this hyperactivity, leading to the restoration of synapses between neurons. — Findings appear in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

From Goodwill, A4 La Mesa resident Marianne Cleveland, who attended the grand opening with her 30-yearold daughter, Jamie, said she raised her two daughters to seek out bargains. “With the economy today I think it’s crazy to go to ‘Needless Markup’ or anywhere else like that — $200 on sale? That’s crazy.” According to Goodwill’s Communications Director Sharron Corrigan, there were more than 300 retail transactions at the store on opening day. Goodwill is opening a store in Poway next month and another in Hillcrest this fall. Forsberg credits the company’s local and national expansion to shoppers seeking bargains during the slowly rebounding economy, as well as the availability of affordable rental sites to open new locations. “In San Diego we’ve been expanding for about the last three years,” Forsberg said. “There’s property out there where there wasn’t before.” Donations are also increasing, she said. “That’s also key to it,” she said. “Even if we have tons and tons of shoppers, if we don’t have great merchandise (from) the generous people of San Diego, we’re not going to have the sales.” The 1,600-square-foot store employees a

he American public is addicted to carbon products for its energy needs and despite overwhelming evidence that man-made carbon dioxide (CO2) is a credible threat to everyone, we lack the will to act. We are quick to place blame for this morass, but perhaps it is time to look in the mirror. There is finger pointing enough for everyone, from conflicting media reports, paralysis of our political Jeffrey Meyer system and corporate greed from the carbon industry. But is it really about them or is it about us, immobilized by a simple lack of effort to check out the facts? It is true that some of our media just don’t understand the worldwide carbon industry, the eventual cost of its products — both environmentally and to our bank accounts — and admittedly this lack of knowledge can create a listless public. As for politicians, it is an uncomfortable reality that their will to act seems more connected to the latest opinion poll than new data from climate scientists. And the carbon industry, well those corporations are created to produce profits and that is simply why they exist. This is all reason enough to point at them. Isn’t it? Our San Diego media seem to counter almost every single news item about global warming with caveats about why that might not be our fault. We complain that they allow a stage for uninformed skeptics and industry lobbyists to sow public doubt about the causes and dangers of global warming.

Ideas for keeping La Jolla streets cleaner In response to Marie Newton’s letter last week regarding her wake-up call to fellow La Jolla residents about the amount of trash strewn along the sidewalks and gutters, I would like to point out that, according to the City of San Diego's June 2012 schedule, the streets of downtown La Jolla are regularly swept. On Monday, the west side of Girard and the surrounding areas (Genter, Pearl, Kline, Silverado, Wall Street and Prospect) are swept from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m., and on Friday the east side of those streets is swept the same time. Unfortunately, often the sweeping process is made more difficult by cars parked overnight. I propose that we should confirm that the City of San Diego still keeps this schedule and eventually urge officials to extend the area and the frequency of street sweeping. Meanwhile, we could get into the habit of doing what I frequently do, that is to take with me a plastic bag and trash-picker stick whenever I take my dog for a walk around my neighbor in downtown La Jolla to collect as much trash as we can. Dr. Guido Baccaglini 48-year La Jolla Resident

But wait, a short Internet search reveals that 97 percent of climate scientists know that global warming is caused by our consumption of carbon products and they are in agreement that this has disastrous consequences for our planet. Showing a little initiative, almost anyone can ferret out the truth about climate science and global warming. How hard is it to take responsibility for doing a little research? A similar effort in regard to fracking for natural gas in our San Joaquin Valley shows that each well can take up to a million gallons of water that is unrecoverable because of a mix of about 30 different chemicals that are hidden from public access by state law. This carcinogenic slop is not supposed to be a problem according to the carbon industry because we are going to pump it back in the ground, below the water table that is critical to this farmland. Yet, it is well known that the valley is crisscrossed with earthquake faults and the risk of extreme pressure on this deep waste water is poorly understood. The disturbing truth is there are no laws in California concerning fracking. Oil and gas companies are not required to disclose the source and amounts of water used in production, nor disclose how and where that water is disposed. Digging a little deeper, we find that valley farmers, cities in southern California and the carbon industry will be competing for the same water from the California aqueduct. Who has deeper pockets? In the past few weeks, we all learned that the world atmospheric CO2 level has reached almost 400 parts per million, a level that climate scientists say has not been reached for more than 3 million years. When it did, scientists say the ocean level was 16 to 131 feet higher than today and they are projecting an increase of 1 to 13 feet by the end of this century depending on how fast glaciers melt. New reports recently released say the average


Dirty streets are dimming La Jolla’s once shining light I recently relocated to La Jolla from the Midwest. I read the letter from 19- year resident Marie Newton in last week’s issue with great interest. I also immediately noticed the amount of litter on the roadways and sidewalks. La Jolla and San Diego are a global tourist destination — one of the most beautiful cities in the United States — how can there be a litter problem? Some of the dinginess in La Jolla is caused by lack of rain. In the Midwest, a regular heavy downpour cleanses the sidewalks. San Diego does not get that kind of rain, and because of this, it is even more critical for storeowners and managers to keep their storefronts swept and clean. In La Jolla there are numerous (many nationally recognized) retail chains doing very little to keep the outside of their stores clean. Is the store manager oblivious to how the outside looks? Do they not have the funds? The

temperature will increase an average of 7.2 degrees F by the year 2100. The last time it was that hot on Earth they say it was 14 million years ago. This week New York City responded with a bold $20 billion proposal to protect its coastline. In San Diego we are still bickering about the causes of climate change. Climate scientists explain that CO2 is not like other greenhouse gases that dissipate over time. A short internet search shows that it stays around for centuries, creating acidic oceans that destroy reefs and marine life, causes worldwide melting of permafrost releasing billions of tons of methane and CO2, and intensifies terrible storms and drought that bring firestorms to areas like San Diego. Coastal commissions throughout the U.S. are preparing for a rising ocean. So is the military. Again, this information is also widely available. There really aren’t any excuses for a public failure to act on this problem. Research the arguments. Follow the money. If a billion dollar corporation is making a huge effort to discredit a few scientists who are allegedly “after grant money for research” then it is pretty obvious you might want to listen to what those scientists are trying to tell you. So, who should we blame for this crisis? We are heavily dependent on carbon products for our every day needs, like transportation and maintaining a temperate work and home life. Right now “new renewables” like small hydro, biomass, solar, biofuels, wind and geothermal just aren’t sufficient to cut our use of carbon products and maintain the lifestyle we need. Nuclear power is no longer an option for San Diego. So even if all of us were on board with climate scientists, we just don’t have many options. Whose fault is that? And that brings me back to our collective failure to understand climate science and our ineffective efforts to act on this problem. investment and time needed is minimal; sidewalks should be swept daily and powerwashed twice a year, landscaping and weed controlled as needed. Litter and illegal dumping on the side of the road is also prevalent. La Jolla Parkway south, and Route 52 east are scattered with litter and commercial debris. Although attempts are made to clean it up periodically, the speed at which litter re-appears is appalling. The City of San Diego needs to consider this issue as important because it markets the city as a tourist destination. The bar must be raised. I urge all residents and the La Jolla Village Merchants Association to demand retail establishments take more action and responsibility for their surroundings. It's a matter of pride .... and long-term success. Patrick Deighan La Jolla

Nesting birds will be disrupted by current Cove cleaning I am very concerned about power washing the rocks at the Cove. Spring nesting season is in full swing. Gulls and cormorants already have chicks in their nests. It would make a lot more sense (and be far more humane) to conduct a rock cleaning in the late summer, fall or winter when baby birds have fledged and are no longer in the nest. Hopefully,

LA JOLLA LIGHT - July 4, 2013 - Page A19

the City of San Diego can correct this oversight before it is too late for baby birds. As a general rule, any tree or shrub trimming or removal should be done in late summer, fall and winter, and never during the spring nesting season. It would be wonderful if the city could take a leadership role in educating the public about safe and humane spring landscape maintenance. Karen Straus Via

OBITUARIES ‘Wave Barrel’ and many other amazing photos by Jared Roberts can be viewed at

Student photographer gaining notoriety, expertise I am writing with appreciation for, but with a correction about, the article in the June 27 issue, “Wavelength La Jolla.” Thank you for highlighting the artists with entries in the new Riford Library exhibition, but the information on Jared Roberts was not correct. Jared is not a painter, but a photographer. I hope you would agree he deserves a corrected write-up to share with fellow La Jollans news about a young person with a talented passion. Jared is a junior at La Jolla High School and at a young age began taking an interest in photography, showing a passion and talent in the field. Jared has a specialty, which is taking photographs of ocean waves. He earned money for a waterproof camera housing and since then has been getting to the ocean, taking beautiful photographs of waves, surfers, and body surfers. As his photographs display, Jared is up close and personal, as he is able to capture the wave’s inner beauty, unique textures and natural power. Jared recently created a website to display his ocean photographs and sport videos, which is Jared has four of his wave photographs at the 24-Hour Fitness on Girard Avenue and is currently working as surf photographer at the San Diego Surf School on Cass Street in Pacific Beach. Jared has two entries in the “Wavelength” exhibition. Nancy Roberts Jared’s Mom

How you can help prevent residential burglaries With the recent increase in residential burglaries in our ZIP code, may I suggest a few things to help prevent more: Beyond the obvious locking doors, shutting windows, shutting the garage door and setting the alarm, we have cancelled the driveway deliveries that not only litter our neighborhood a few times a week, but when left, are an easy tip to would-be thieves that no one is home.

James Patrick Phelan “True Salesman”

1925 – 2013

Long time La Jolla resident, Jim Phelan went with our Lord during his sleep on January 20, 2013, at the active age of 87, with loved ones not too far away. He was a handsome man with a smile that lit up the room that said, “I am so glad to see you!” Once he met you, he never forgot you…he loved people! Jim was an only child of parents that came from Ireland in the early 1900’s. They settled in St. Louis, Missouri, where Jim was born. His father passed away when he was six years old and he found himself blessed to be raised by his mother, an aunt and a cousin. Jim attended St. Louis Cathedral grade school, St. Louis University High School and continued his education when he went into the Navy V-12 Program. This consisted of Iowa State College in Ames, Iowa, with the final six semesters at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He went on to attend Washington University, Undergraduate School in St. Louis, MO, and was awarded the degree of B.S. Mechanical Engineering, in 1947. He continued graduate school in the following years and received the degree of M.S. in Applied Mechanics. During time spent of completing his masters,

Jim always considered it a privilege to work with and for J.R. Moore, whose inertial guidance system was the world’s best and was the guidance system in the minuteman missile. In 1948, Jim taught a course in the Applied Mechanics Department, Washington University, in St. Louis. Between 1949 and 1955, Jim discovered his lifetime love...sales. (He made telephone sales calls up to two days before the good Lord reached down to take him.) He went to work for Granite City Steel Co. in Granite City, Illinois, which is a basic mill producer of flat rolled steel. He pursued a familiarization course in the fundamentals of steel making and marketing. Jim worked as a fulltime, outside salesman selling Granite City Steel to industrial users. In October 1958, Jim Phelan co-founded with Mr. John Tramelli, a lifelong friend, a manufacturer’s agency in St. Louis, MO, Phelan-Tramelli Sales Agency, to sell to industrial customers in Missouri and southern Illinois area. Manufacturers represented included steel mills, plastic companies and producers of fabricated metal parts. This sales agency is still thriving and blooming due to the children of Mr. John Tramelli, carrying the same agency name. Jim was married in 1965. Jim and his wife, Emma Lee Crow, from Poplar Bluff, MO, made their home in St. Louis, MO, had a fabulous little boy, Sean, in 1967, and decided to move to La Jolla, CA, in 1974. Location and climate were main factors. Jim started a new sales agency, The Phelan Co., and worked out of La Jolla. His travel to see principals and prospects took him mainly to the Los Angeles and San Francisco areas. He loved to golf, play tennis, read and watch the football and baseball teams “fight it out”. He has worked with pro-life

for many years as well as the Community Christian Service Agency (CCSA). Jim has loved the Bible and the teachings of God and has attended many Bible classes over the 39 years living in La Jolla. He was always “at peace” with his God, and a great “gift” to man with his kind, gentle and Godly spirit. He leaves behind his beloved wife, Emma Lee; his cherished son, Sean Patrick Phelan; three grand-nephews; many loving family members by marriage; and countless close, loving friends. We all miss him greatly. Jim was laid to rest January 28, 2013, at the Miramar National Cemetery in San Diego. There will be a Mass of “Celebration of Jim’s Life, to God be the Glory” at All Hallow’s Catholic Church in La Jolla on Monday, July 22, 2013, at noon.

Nancy Hall Pawka 1921 – 2013

Nancy Hall Pawka was a 50 year resident of La Jolla. She was the only child of Elmer and Emma Hall, also of La Jolla. She married Edward Pawka, a naval aviator, in 1942. They raised three sons. In 1964, Ed retired from the Navy and they moved to La Jolla. Nancy worked as a volunteer for over 40 years at the Naval Hospital and VA Hospital and received many awards from the Red Cross for thousands of hours of service. This includes the President’s Call to Service Award in 2005. Nancy was also a member of Gamma Phi Beta Sorority, La Jolla Chapter. Nancy is survived by her sons, Michael and Tom. She had two grandchildren, Coral and Briana. Nancy will be inurned with her husband, Ed, at Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery very near her mother and father.

A section of the La Jolla Cove cliffs as seen during the first phase of guano removal. Pat Sherman

From Cove Cleanup, A1 done right and they took care of it. This is a great success.” The city hired Blue Eagle at a cost of $50,000 to apply guano-eating bacteria to the cliffs above La Jolla Cove, as well as consultants like biologist Keith Merkel to assure that wildlife was safe and the water surrounding the work site free of runoff during the work. Filner said annual maintenance of the cliffs is expected to cost about $100,000. However, La Jolla Village Merchants Association Board President Phil Coller said most of the people he has spoken with in La Jolla view removal of a fence in front of the cliffs — erected in the late 1970s in response to safety and liability concerns — as a more cost-effective and practical solution. “That’s the general consensus from everybody that I’m hearing from,” he said. “It's the lack of access by humans that has caused the problem. … The longterm, low-cost solution is to allow people to get back to the rocks, with the appropriate safety measures in place, like signage or putting some fence closer to the edge. … it’s going to allow (human) traffic and then the number of birds will be reduced to what it was.” Mark Dibella, La Valencia Hotel’s Managing Director, concurred, saying that while the hotel has noticed a “livable” reduction in the smell, hotel management hopes removal of the fence is still under consideration as a long-term, cost-effective solution (Dibella said he was discussing this option with Filner’s chief of staff, Allen Jones, prior to Jones’ June 21 resignation).

In the meantime, Blue Eagles’ contract requires that its workers avoid nesting birds or other wildlife that might be disturbed by the work. The requirement has prevented Blue Eagle’s crew from covering as much area as they had hoped. In addition, environmental regulations require that workers leave a three-foot-wide strip at the cliff’s edge untouched. “This has always been planned as a twophase effort,” said Mayor Filner. “We knew there might be some limitations because of the nesting season and we understand that some of the odor may linger a bit longer,” he said. “Even so, what Blue Eagle has accomplished so far is amazing. The odor is down and fun is back up in La Jolla.” Blue Eagle workers will return to the cliffs following the nesting season to apply another round of its product across a broader area. It is hoped that this twophase approach will relieve the odor problem throughout the coming year. Until the second phase begins, Merkel said workers are monitoring how rapidly new bird and marine mammal waste is deposited on the rocks to determine the frequency of treatment required in the future. Before Phase 1 had been completed, however, Merkel said fresh bird and sea lion waste was discovered again on treated areas. Merkel said disruptions to sea lions, cormorants and pelicans were expected during the work, but minimized. Most of the sea lions moved to other rocks or entered the water upon the workers’ arrival each morning, though workers had to give a wide berth to some marine mammals that stood their ground, and returned to treat those areas at a later time.

The odor is down and fun is back up in La Jolla.

— Bob Filner San Diego Mayor

Shores surfers treated to wave-riding trip to Israel By Ashley Mackin urf’s up! … in Israel? “That’s what I thought when I first read the invitation,” La Jolla Shores Surfing Association member Simon Andrews said. “It’s not only possible, but has a ‘wow!’ factor you can only find there.” A group of La Jolla surfers recently returned from a surfing excursion to Israel that they considered the pinnacle of generosity, new experiences (including night surfing) and perspective. “We were completely bowled over by their generosity,” said Lorraine Schnalenberger, president of La Jolla Shores Surfing Association, of the community in Israel — everyone from the surfers themselves all the way up to the mayor’s office. The impetus for the trip was establishing a pen-pal program with an emerging surf community in Ashdod, Israel. “I’m thinking we’ll exchange a T-shirt, make them an honorary member, invite the surfers to join us on an outing in La Jolla if they ever come to La Jolla,” Schnalenberger said. “And then comes this invitation to visit Ashdod as guests. I said, ‘Is this for real?’ ” The offer, which was real, was to visit the city, paying only for airfare. Accommodations, food, tours and entertainment were all taken care of. “We had to work really hard to spend our own money, let’s put it that way,” she joked. The original invitation was for eight, but when 11 people responded, the Mayor of Ashdod’s office said to “bring them all.” Surfers from the La Jolla Shores Surf Association, the Malibu Surfing Association and the Cardiff Surf Club, in their 20s to 70s, accepted the invitation and departed for Israel on May 25, returning June 3. La Jolla Shores Surfing Association member and trip coordinator Allan Goldstein explained that generosity was also seen in the surfers. He said most La Jollans did not bring their surfboards so the local surfers loaned theirs. “You specified what boards you like to ride and they’d donate them,” he said, “Surfers can be a little territorial with their home break but these (surfers) were absolutely not.” While there, the La Jollans experienced the custom of night surfing. With the temperature exceeding 100 degrees during summer days, surfers in Israel were getting sun burnt as the sport gained in popularity. So surfers began bringing lights to a jetty and illuminating the beach at night. “Once you’ve done it a couple of times, it becomes the most fantastic experience; it’s so different,” Goldstein said. With water temperatures in the high-70s at night, the La Jolla group would go out at 11 p.m. and return at 2 a.m. to a picnic and some beer. “It was like San Diego on a perfect summer day, every day,” Schnalenberger said. As an added benefit, Goldstein said youths in Ashdod would be out surfing at night, instead of causing trouble. With the appeal of night surfing, the Israeli community is trying to put Ashdod surfing on the map. All first-generation surfers, the Ashdod Surf Club formed when their favorite surf spots were being threatened though proposals like installing a fishing port at a popular jetty and building fences along the beach. Within three weeks of establishment, the club had 2,000 members. They are in the process of opening a surf museum and installing signs

From Surfing, A21 to indicate designated surfing areas. “They have rallied their surf communities to save their beaches for surfing, just like the Shores has rallied surfers,” Schnalenberger said. “We’ve all had to rally surfers to protect our beaches, our sacred breaks and the surfing lifestyle.” Offering advice to the burgeoning surf community, she said the La Jolla group told them “how we raised money and our coalition of surf clubs in California, how we collaborate across cities, and our structure.”

Though they had much to offer the Israeli community, Schnalenberger said she was most amazed by what they already had in common. “We’re all surf fanatics, as a lifestyle, we seek out surf swells as much as we can — even juggling family and jobs — and they were also like that,” she said. “Everybody loved the people, the experience, the friendship and the camaraderie. It was really an eye-opening experience for everybody. "I’ll consider us lifelong friends with every surfer in Ashdod.”

Boom Tic Boom to bring jazz series to a big finish

Shark Summer

By Lonnie Burstein Hewitt Drummer Allison Miller’s quintet, Boom Tic Boom, is a five-star combo, closing out the Athenaeum’s Summer Jazz Series with a concert that should bring down the house on July 11. Every one of the players in the band is hot, hot, hot! And every one is a bandleader, too. Miller herself, who has been playing drums since she was 10 (but started beating out rhythms on her highchair way before then), says her mother swears that even in utero, she was kicking to the beat of whatever music was on. Her early influences were Michael Jackson and Prince, but after hearing one of Miles Davis’ recordings, she graduated to jazz. “I love the challenge of jazz drumming,” she said. “It’s so individualistic. You support the band, but you can improvise, too.” Based in New York City, Miller has (four times) been named a Rising Star Drummer by Down Beat Magazine, and the Los Angeles Times called Boom Tic Boom’s debut album one of the Top 10 albums of 2010. Beside leading BTB, she provides beats for Ani DiFranco, Brandi Carlile and Natalie Merchant, as well as a number of jazz greats, and is a three-time Jazz Ambassador of the U.S. State Department. A prolific composer (on piano, her first instrument), she writes most of the music for Boom Tic Boom. BTB pianist Myra Melford, who is also a composer, leads a quintet of her own, Snowy Egret, and is one-third of Trio M, along with UC San Diego-based bass player Mark Dresser and drummer Matt Wilson. This year, not only did she receive a Guggenheim Fellowship for music composition, but she recently won a Doris Duke Performing Artist Award and Residency in San Francisco, for her multimedia project, “Language of Dreams.”

By Lynne Friedmann his time of year, La Jolla Shores beckons with its soft sand, clean water and gentle waves. It also heralds an astonishing annual gathering of equally gentle leopard sharks. They began arriving in June. Thousands of them are there now in the shallow, calm offshore waters foraging for small fish, crustaceans and invertebrates that they vacuum up in their small mouths and swallow whole. Yes, they are sharks. No, they won’t bite you. The most common way to view leopard sharks in the wild is either kayaking or snorkeling. Don’t care to get wet? Come explore ElasmoBeach Reef — a new, permanent exhibit featuring sharks, rays and other marine life that make their home in local waters — opening at the Birch Aquarium at Scripps on July 4. “We get to show animals from our ‘backyard,’ ” said Fernando Nosratpour, acting curator, Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego. Sharks, rays and skates are collectively known as elasmobranches (meaning “strap gill”), a subclass See SHARKS, B10

Let Inga Tell You

Summer time and the living is … congested


La Jolla Cultural Partners

think all of us year-round residents of La Jolla feel incredibly lucky to live in this beautiful oceanside community. But just as people on cell phones treat the rest of the world like deaf mutes, one can’t help but notice that summer tourists at a beach resort seem to have beamed themselves mentally to a parallel universe where traffic laws do not apply. I actually do my best to make out-oftowners feel welcome here — loading up on extra La Jolla maps to hand out, offering to take group photos, suggesting restaurants to people who ask, and especially to pointing seriously lost people toward The Cove. (They’ve usually overshot it and ended up in Bird Rock.) I’ve been a tourist a lot myself and I always appreciate kindness from the locals. I’m proud of my community and I want people to have a good time here. But I also want them to live to tell about it. At the Shores, beach chair-laden visitors wander at will across busy streets in front of oncoming cars. They look stunned to hear the screech of tires, a blank look appearing across a puzzled face as they attempt to process what that annoying sound might have been. In downtown La Jolla, meanwhile,

visitors with the same Normal-Rules-of Safety-Do-Not-Apply expression obliviously walk behind cars that are clearly backing up, launch their own cars in reverse into oncoming traffic, and even stop dead in the middle of the street to point out a scene of interest. Sometimes it amazes me that so many locals and tourists survive the summer season. In vacationers’ defense, their confusion in negotiating our town is probably linked to the fact that all the street names in La Jolla are basically permutations of the same ten Spanish words. Some long-ago real estate developer figured out that places with Spanish-y names sell better. (And sí! they do!) The street words camino, avenida, paseo, rancho, playa and via are variously followed by the descriptives vista, hermosa, villa, mira, bella, mar, alta, baja, cresta, monte, bonita, oro, sol, posada, mesa, norte, sur, and corona. Then you just mix and match, as in Paseo Bella Mar Norte, Vista del Monte Oro, Via Rancho Mesa Alta, etc. Occasionally an Americanism creeps in in situations that the early Spaniards couldn’t have anticipated (Avenida del Discount Drug). That the long-ago developer didn’t speak Spanish himself is obvious when streets labeled monte or alta are on

flatlands. A visitor stops and asks you for directions to Caminito de la Cresta Bonita, and you say to yourself, is that the one next to Posada del Mira Monte? No, that’s Camino de la PLAYA Bonita. Or is that Cresta de la Vista Bonita? Vista de la Bonita Cresta? Sorry, folks, the locals can’t figure it out either. One could not have a discussion about summer in La Jolla without discussing parking. Or more specifically, a lack of it. Parking is never easy in the downtown area any time of the year but becomes a statistical impossibility come July 4. Those of us who live here know where the two hour spots are and are prepared to hike a few blocks to a lunch Daniel K. Lew destination, but people who don’t end up making endless frustrated loops before parking in a guaranteed-ticket one hour spot or stumbling upon that rare garage that still has room. Last August, always the busiest month in La Jolla, I was meeting a friend, her visiting mom, and her 10-year-old daughter at the Whisknladle for lunch. My friend dropped off her mom and daughter and went in search of a parking spot. It was a full hour before she was back, valiantly trying to

hold back some well-deserved crankiness. But thanks to that wait, the 10-year-old had had time to completely program my new iPhone even though she doesn’t personally have one herself. It’s all intuitive, she explained, adding that she’d just programmed her dad’s, who is president of the technology company my husband works for. My friend reported that if she hadn’t already dropped off the others she would have been seriously tempted to turn around and go back to Carlsbad. Even the garages were full. Come Memorial Day, I try to keep my maximum speed at 15 miles per hour in downtown La Jolla. That’s actually not too hard to accomplish since most of the time you couldn’t go faster than that if you wanted to. I fantasize having a neon blinking sign on the top of my car so I could broadcast “Look both ways!” “The light is red!” or even “AIIEEEE!” But soon enough, it will be Labor Day again and life in La Jolla will return to its normally congested self. In the meantime, we hope everyone had a really nice time! — Inga’s lighthearted looks at life in La Jolla appear regularly in La Jolla Light. Reach Inga by e-mail at

More history in peril Historic preservationists say a 1936 home built by San Diego architect Cliff May (1909-1989) — considered the father of the California Ranch-style home — could be the next historic structure lost to development. Neighbors said late last week all palm trees and other lush landscaping surrounding the historically significant home at 7727 Lookout Drive were cut down within a two-day period, without permits or proper public notification. Bruce Coons, executive director of the Save Our Heritage Organisation (SOHO), noted that any significant alterations to a property 45 years or older should trigger a review by the city’s Historical Resources Board (HRB). “The setting is usually a major portion of (a property’s) history,” said Coons, who also lives in a home built by Cliff May. “(May) had a particular plant palette that he used in those days — pepper trees, olives, cactus and other things. … It all went with his early California theme. He picked plants that would create shadows on the white adobe walls.” In addition, Coons said a historically significant landscape architect is connected to the property, which may also warrant historic review. The home was most recently part of the Yianilos Estate, and listed for $6.7 million in 2011, but sold for $3.5 million. A listing for the property in the La Jolla Light touted its “rare, lush palm trees” lining the generous drive — all of which were felled last week. Ironically, according to a 2008 U-T San Diego obituary, Greek immigrant and NINE-TEN LJ Light 022312.pdf


Neighbors say the owner of this historically significant home on Lookout Drive hired workers to denude its entire landscaping, including dozens of palm trees, with plans to divide the property and sell individual parcels to developers. They fear architect Cliff May’s 1936 California Ranch-style home will be either demolished or closed off by new development. Photos by Pat Sherman longtime La Jollan Theresa Yianilos, who once resided there, was known around town as the “Palm Lady” due to the “fervent campaign” she waged to preserve palm trees in La Jolla and elsewhere in San Diego. An e-mail from Desiree Kellogg, who lives in an historic home across the street on Lookout Drive, said she has learned that the current property owner, David Mandelbaum, is in the process of subdividing the property. Kellogg said she requested that the HRB require a complete historic evaluation, and that the city issue a cease and desist order “so that all permits, including lot line adjustments, be stopped immediately or reversed if they were given under false pretenses, or if key information was omitted when making the request for lot line adjustments.”

Diane Kane of the La Jolla Historical Society’s (LJHS) Preservation Committee said surviving Yianilos family members were notified twice in writing, once by the LJHS and once by SOHO, that the property was potentially historic. Attempts to reach Mandelbaum by press time were unsuccessful.

Post Office update According to LJHS Preservation Committee Chair Leslie Davis, on June 27 the Historical Resources Board voted unanimously to confer a local historic designation to the Wall Street post office based on Criterion E (because it is already listed on the National Register of Historic Places). Davis said the LJHS twice requested (and were denied) having the city add other

criteria as a reason for designation, which society members believe would further protect the building’s historic character if sold by the U.S. Postal Service (USPS). The society argued that the property is doubly significant — both to San Diego’s local history and because of its WPA-era architecture and interior mural. Davis said she believes USPS will consider the local designation the final step in the “Section 106” process, which must be completed before USPS can list the building for sale, per the National Preservation Act. Meanwhile, a representative for the USPS saids its attorneys are still reviewing some 70 public appeals filed in regard to the pending sale of the building at 1140 Wall St. and relocation of its services.

By Diana Saenger UC San Diego grad Maria Mileaf, is directing a rekindling of N. Richard Nash’s classic romantic comedy, “The Rainmaker,” at The Old Globe Theatre in Balboa Park this summer. “The Rainmaker” has quite a history. Since Nash penned it in the 1950s, it has been translated into more than 40 languages, made into a musical, and the 1956 film starring Katharine Hepburn and Burt Lancaster. It has won Academy Awards and a Tony. Mileaf said she heard about the play, but had not seen it or read the script until The Globe’s Artistic Director Barry Edelstein approached her about directing it. “I found it charming, engaging and quite beautiful,” Mileaf said. “It even made me cry to understand the characters and what they were all about.” “The Rainmaker” is set in the 1930s against the sweeping landscape of the drought-ridden Midwest. Spinsterish Lizzie Curry (Danielle Skraastad) has just returned from a family visit where she hoped to find a possible mate. Instead, she’s saddled with worry about how to keep the declining ranch going. Yet Lizzie still dreams about finding Mr. Right and wonders if he might possibly be Bill Starbuck (Gbenga Akinnagbe) the charming (soon to be known as a charlatan) man who promises to bring rain in exchange for $100. Mileaf directs from the original Nash script and is thrilled to be joined by what she calls “a very exciting

Maria Mileaf directs‘The Rainmaker’ at The Old Globe Theatre. Jim Cox and talented design team” (aka Neil Patel, her husband). “We’ve worked together on several projects and work very well together,” she said. “He’s created a terrific set for this show, which is one of the first things for a director to decide. In this case, the audience must see an environment set in the 1930s, but the set must also create a world that gives a sense of a western drought, while also focusing on a story about characters who need hope. “Katherine Roth has created beautiful costumes, and I’m delighted with the lighting design by Japhy Weideman, especially how he’s lit the background skies.” In the casting process, Mileaf said she found just the right actors for the leads

— Skraastad and Akinnagbe. “There were challenges to make compelling in a 2013 play about a motherless family-centered girl who yearns to have her own journey and also a father and how he allows her to blossom,” Mileaf said. “The love triangle is uppermost. Gbenga read for the part of Starbuck very well. He’s very much a dangerous, sexy, stranger. Danielle is amazing. I’ve seen her on stage before, and she’s a beautiful theatrical actor.” Anyone who has seen the play, or the 1956 film, will presumably arrive with certain expectations. Mileaf is ready for that. “My goal has always been to create a good experience at the theater for the audience,” she said. With ‘The Rainmaker,’ we are creating something compelling and edgy. One might ask why this girl is falling for a cowboy squeezed into a con man? There are many things in the play people will relate to that still happen in one way or another in 2013. “This story is for those who want to live happily-everafter, but in a real way. Not so much in having a dream, but discovering the center of who they are and what they want in this world.”

Summer’s gorgeous gourd is as cool as a cucumber


lthough these seedy squashes thrive year round, the refreshing cucumber is the quintessential symbol of summer. It cools the palate with a thirstquenching burst of fresh flavors reminiscent of melon and grassy herbs. This multi-tasking gourd works just as well in chilled soups and salads as in smoothies and sorbets. Here’s a primer to get the best out of this divine fruit of the vine. Variety is the Slice of Life Native to India, the cucumber has been cultivated for 3,000 years. Today cucumbers are classified into three varieties — slicing, pickling and burpless. Typically, long slicing cukes are eaten in the unripe, raw stage with smooth green skins that are usually tough and waxed. Picklers are bred to be a uniform length (3-4 inches), and 1-inch wide, such as gherkins, cornichons and Kirbys. These warty, chubby stubs are soaked in brine and other spices to make crispy dills for deli fare and sandwich toppings. Finally, burpless of Iranian descent (named for its relative ease of digestion compared to the other belch- and gasprovoking varieties) have thinner skins and sweeter flesh. Some are behemoths that can grow up to two-feet-long and are practically seedless (English or hothouse and Armenian), and have a delightful, tender peel. Others are diminutive (Persian, Lebanese) with similar sweet flesh and tender seeds. This time of year you might spot a golden-yellow spheroid called a lemon cucumber. This delightfully sweet, crisp cuke can be eaten raw in green salads, cooked like a squash, pickled or juiced in cocktails and smoothies. It pairs well with tomatoes, citrus, cheese and olives. Another Fine Pickle The delicate cucumber, a mighty water reservoir is a powerhouse of vitamins and minerals. Packed with a full compliment of Bs to put the skids on stress, Vitamin C to rev up the immune system, calcium for bone health, magnesium, potassium, zinc and fiber (we know what that’s for), cucumber also acts like nature’s plastic surgeon with a host of phytochemicals performing miraculous feats. For that beach bod, rub a cool slice on your thighs or other cellulite spots for a couple of minutes to tighten collagen, firm up the epidermis and lessen the appearance of the cottage cheese puckering. And for the face, whether you place those refreshing cuke slices on your tired and puffy eyelids or eat this cooling food, your skin will be treated to an anti-


aging boost thanks to the high water and silica content. Pick a Winner Look for firm, flawless cucumbers with good heft (proportional to their size) and rounded ends. Discard any with soft spots and shriveled tips. The smaller more slender fruit also tend to be sweeter, more flavorful and have fewer seeds. Store unwashed in the crisper drawer of the fridge so the higher humidity will keep them firmer longer, and use within a week.

Heard it through the Cuke Vine n Munch on cucumbers as a bedtime snack to put the skids on headaches and hangovers the next morning. n To cure bad breath, rub or press a slice of cucumber on the roof of your mouth for about a minute. n As a stress buster, boil a cucumber in a pot of water and breathe in the steam as it perfumes the room with a soothing scent. It’s a Dilly Cucumbers pair well with salt and vinegar, along with chives, dill and mint. You can pickle or deep fry them Southernstyle; slice them on sandwiches; chop them into salads (my faves are Greek and Cobb); dice into chilled soups like gazpacho and vichyssoise; incorporate in sushi rolls, Vietnamese rice paper spring rolls, chilled low mein stir-fry, or a Tzatziki dip (Greek cucumber yoghurt) or you can slice Persians lengthwise and dip them in a dip. — For additional cucumber recipes e-mail

of cartilaginous fish whose bodies are supported by skeletons consisting of cartilage — a flexible, connective tissue not as hard and rigid as bone but stiffer and less flexible than muscle. ElasmoBeach Reef occupies the Shark Reef tank in the aquarium’s Smargon Courtyard. For a decade, that tank housed a coral reef environment featuring warm-water sharks. The previous coral reef inhabitants are now in new homes at other aquaria, Nosratpour said. The new exhibit includes leopard sharks, bat rays, shovelnose guitarfish and smooth-hound sharks together with California halibut, spot-fin croakers, yellow-fin croakers and other sandy-bottom inhabitants. These are captive-raised specimens already in the Birch Aquarium collection. Turning the existing 13,000-gallon tank into a new habitat required removing rocks and other reef elements to make the exhibit as obstruction-free as possible with smooth walls and a sandy bottom. It was also necessary to cool down the water in the tank from a tropical 76 degrees to a bracing 68 degrees to mimic local offshore conditions. An important unseen element in the exhibit is beneficial bacteria that aid the water filtration system. “Lowering the water temperature was done gradually, so bacteria could get used to the cooler water,” Nosratpour said. The animals were then added a few at a time over several days in order to help them adjust to their new surroundings. Careful attention was given to balance the gender ratio and size of animals. The most conspicuous and abundant animals in the tank are leopard sharks that derive their name from their distinctive dark brown spotting pattern. Found only along the Pacific Coast from Oregon to the Gulf of California in Mexico, leopard sharks can grow up to five feet in length and tip the scales at around 20 pounds. Males become sexually mature between 7 to 13 years old; females between 10 to 15 years old. They can live up to 30 years. Aquarium staff keep a log of each animal, noting its length, weight, eating habits and health. Fortunately, leopard shark spots are unique, so telling one shark from another is relatively easy. Their markings appear at birth and vary by size, number and shape with some markings looking like scribbles. “This makes life easier,” Nosratpour said. The opening of ElasmoBeach Reef marks the kick-off of Shark Summer at the aquarium; a two-month long festival of events now through Aug. 24 (see sidebar). Previously, the aquarium sponsored popular Shark Discovery Days or Shark Week programs each summer. “It is expanded this year, emphasizing local sharks and shark conservation,” said Nigella Hillgarth, executive director of the Birch Aquarium.


Birch Aquarium will offer Shark and Wildlife Kayak Adventures throughout July and August.

The ElasmoBeach Reef exhibit will include leopard sharks, bat rays, shovelnose guitarfish, smooth-hound sharks, California halibut, spot-fin croakers, yellow-fin croakers and other sandy-bottom inhabitants. Courtesy of Scripps Institute of Oceanography

LA JOLLA NEWS NUGGETS From News Nuggets, B6 “The attorneys will review each appeal individually prior to submitting them to the vice president for analysis and a final determination,” USPS spokesperson Diana Alvarado said. “These are carefully vetted. We do not have any (relocation) sites identified at this time.” Local real estate broker Paul Lafrenz, who is handling the sale, said he is waiting to hear from USPS. “We’re not on the market; we have no information out,” LaFrenz said. “If you said, ‘Can we see a package?’ I wouldn’t have anything to show you.” Lafrenz said it is his understanding that whoever buys the post office will be required to maintain its historical aspects. “That’s not going to be a preference; that’s going to be a requirement,” he said. Davis is asking the community to phone Congressmember Darrell Issa, whose committee oversees the USPS, and ask him to support the community’s appeal of the post office sale.

La Jolla student wins congressional contest La Jolla Country Day senior Fidelia Speidel was chosen as winner of the 52nd District Congressional Art Contest, and attended a winners’ reception in Washington, D.C. last month, where her work will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol Complex. High school students across the district submitted entries in early spring. After being on display at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego’s downtown gallery, a panel of local art community leaders determined a winner. La Jolla Country Day senior Mayra Nunez was chosen as a runner-up via Congressman Scott Peters’ (D-52) Facebook page. Her work will be displayed at Peters’ UTC office.

ADA access at Children’s Pool According to the San Diego Reader, a disabled man filed suit against the City of San Diego for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act by not providing safe access to the shoreline for people with disabilities. Jack Robertson, a paraplegic, avid swimmer and president of Action Home Access, a company that retrofits homes for the disabled, filed the suit June 25. “Persons with disabilities find it a great place to start their ocean swim because they can avoid the large waves they would have to contend with when entering the ocean at other beaches,” the suit states. “Each time that the plaintiff has swum at the Children’s Pool, he has been bodily carried down the stairs by others. This is scary, frustrating, discomforting, embarrassing and difficult. … The lack of access and the inaccessible

Though La Jolla’s annual July 4th fireworks display was scheduled to go off this week despite ongoing legal challenges over the event’s potential impact on the marine environment, fireworks organizer Deborah Marengo said there may not be a pyrotechnics show at La Jolla Cove next year if her foundation doesn’t get more financial support than it did this year. “Each year expenses keep going up and each year we get less and less community cooperation,” Marengo said, noting that costs increased this year due to the city requiring additional fencing and fire retardant at the launch site. The water quality control fee also increased by $500 this year, she said. To donate to the fireworks fund, visit

Fireworks bill pending Legislation is headed for the governor’s desk designed to end some of the legal disputes over permits for local fireworks displays. On July 1, the Assembly Natural Resources Committee unanimously approved Senate Bill 633, which would direct the governor’s Office of Planning and Research to create guidelines for when temporary, minor-use special events should be exempt from a state law that requires environmental review as a condition for a permit. The measure is designed to allay concerns that lawsuits could halt smaller community events, such as fireworks displays and parades, due to the expense of even minor environmental reviews. The guidelines would be developed by July 1, 2015, and certified by 2016.

‘Merchant of Venice’ engages with reflection LET’S REVIEW By Diana Saenger he Old Globe Theatre continues its 2013 Shakespeare Festival with “The Merchant of Venice” directed by Adrian Noble. The play has long had its fans and critics; still, its tale of greed, romance, forbearance and religious intolerance continues to provide a good base for classic actors while engaging its audience in thought and speculation about its contradictions. The huge cast does its job of delivering


both laughs in the lighter moments, while raising the hairs on your arms in the darker. Once again, The Globe delivers entertainment along with introspection. In addition to its exploration of usury, there’s a double romance in this Venetian tale. As stipulated in her father’s will, heiress Portia (Krystel Lucas) must face a series of suitors hoping to win her hand. They each choose one of three caskets, hoping to find her portrait inside. Bassanio (Lucas Hall), a gentleman below her status, is determined to win but lacks the cash needed to make the trip to her town. He asks to borrow the money from Antonio

(Donald Carrier), who suggests they approach the Jewish moneylender Shylock (Miles Anderson). Shylock is not fond of Antonio, as he has ridiculed Jews many times, but greed pushes Shylock to lend Bassanio the gold coins he needs. However, instead of interest, should the loan default, Shylock demands a pound of Antonio’s flesh. Lucas hams it up as Portia, pacing behind the men on hand to open a casket. Her facial expressions belie whom she hopes finds the portrait. When Bassanio arrives and has his turn at the caskets, it’s clear he’s the one Portia wants. When he finds the portrait, Portia rewards him with her ring, which she removes and makes him promise never to remove. The other romance is between the Christian lothario, Lorenzo (Adam Gerber) and Jessica (Winslow Corbett), the daughter of the miserly, frowned-upon Shylock. When Shylock learns that Jessica has run away with Lorenzo and also stolen his money and precious jewels, he’s beside himself. He forsakes his perceptive and driven nature turning into a screaming, angry man out for revenge at any cost. Anderson is spot-on in this performance, just as he is as Bottom in the other Globe Summer Shakespeare Festival production, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” It’s a double fate when Shylock ends up in court. There’s a lot to follow in this production. Is Shylock a callous villain or a victim of anti-Semitism and its outreach?

Bassanio (Lucas Hall) hopes to win the hand of Heiress Portia (Krystel Lucas) in The Old Globe Theatre’s staging of ‘The Merchant of Venice.’ Michael Lamont

Can one’s identity become one’s own worst enemy? How far does one go to collect on a bond? What mysterious part does not one ring, but two, play in this tale? My question is how did Shakespeare ever come up with this story? — “The Merchant of Venice” plays matinees, evenings to Sept. 28 at Lowell Davies Festival Theatre, 1363 Old Globe Way, Balboa Park. Tickets from $29. (619) 234-5623.

‘Tribes’ speaks loudly for the deaf at La Jolla Playhouse LET’S REVIEW By Diana Saenger aking a good look at the set of “Tribes” before the play got underway at La Jolla Playhouse’s Mandell Weiss Forum Theatre recently, it was easy to begin to understand its message: We all belong to a tribe of sorts. The two-story house clearly represents different areas for the family members who live there. The long dining-room table is not only a place where conversations happen over a meal, but where mother Beth (Lee Roy Rogers) and daughter Ruth (Dina Thomas) can fold clothes together and discuss the bitter and loud behavior of the husband/father Christopher (Jeff Still), and Thomas DellaMonica (Daniel), Meghan O’Neill (Sylvia), Russell Harvard (Billy), how unhappy Ruth is with her own life. A cozy lounge chair with ottoman and Lee Roy Rogers (Beth), Dina Thomas (Ruth) and Jeff Still (Christopher) in Sylvia signs to Billy.

the duly appointed trustee as shown below, of all right, title, and interest conveyed to and now held by the trustee in the hereinafter described property under and pursuant to a Deed of Trust described below. The sale will be made, but without covenant or warranty, expressed or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances to pay the remaining principal sum of the Note(s) secured by the Deed of Trust, with interest and late charges thereon, as provided in the Notes(s), advances, under the terms of the Deed of Trust, interest thereon, fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee for the total amount (at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale) reasonably estimated to be set forth below. The amount may be greater on the date of sale. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (800) 7207827 or visit this Internet Web site (WWW.PRIORITYPOSTING.COM), using the file number assigned to this case (Ts#321191). Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. Trustor(s): Brian D. Alexander, Administrator of Estate of James M.
