Back-to-School Boogie Bishop’s kicks off new school year with pep rally


he Bishop’s School students were the first in town to head back for the 2013-2014 school year. On Wednesday, Aug. 21 they returned to their hallowed halls for a few class periods and then a “Dancing Through the Decades” rally to generate excitement for the coming term. The short week was designed to serve as an easy transition from summer to the fall school year. Led by the Associated Student Body Council, students learned a dance to represent each decade, from the 1920s to the 1990s. — Ashley Mackin

By Pat Sherman A proposed mixed-use development project at the corner of Pearl Street and Eads Avenue that appeared to have little resistance and garnered only minor criticism during the Aug. 13 meeting of La Jolla’s Development Permit Review (DPR) committee, faced strong opposition during the DPR’s Aug. 20 meeting. Property owner Mark Conger is seeking to replace his gas station with a two-building, mixed-use project that would include a restaurant and retail space on the ground floor along Pearl Street and 12 two- to three-bedroom condos — 10 of which would be in a three-story building at the rear of the property. (See story and photos in last week’s La Jolla Light at About 10 opponents at the meeting agreed in theory that such a project would look better than the existing service station, though sought drastic alterations in its size and density relative to the homes on Eads Avenue. Doug and Karen Moranville, who live immediately adjacent the project in a one-story cottage, retained legal services of attorney Julie Hamilton to dispute the development.

UCSD professor delves into mystery of dual Mona Lisas during Torrey Pines Rotary meeting By Pat Sherman Though many art scholars say their favorite painting by Leonardo da Vinci is of the 15th Century aristocrat, Ginevra de’ Benci (on display at the National Gallery in Washington, D.C.), a more intriguing 16th century beauty named Mona Lisa has far surpassed that work’s popularity due to rumor and speculation ignited when she was stolen from the Louvre Museum, Aug. 22, 1911. “It was returned to the Louvre a couple years later … (though that) two-year absence was all you needed to develop conspiracy theories that the Italians sent back a copy of the Mona Lisa, and that somebody kept the original,” said UC San Diego physics professor emeritus John Asmus during the Aug. 14 meeting of the Torrey Pines of La Jolla Rotary Club. Asmus gave Rotarians and guests a dose of mystery and art history while discussing his work to help verify that da Vinci created an additional Mona Lisa a decade before he created the one on permanent display at the Louvre.

Art experts say Italian Renaissance painter Leonardo da Vinci created the Isleworth Mona Lisa (left) around 1503, 10 years before he painted the Mona Lisa on display at the Louvre Museum in Paris (right). He also discussed his work employing X-ray, infrared and computer technology to give the world a glimpse of what the Mona Lisa at the Louvre looked like before she was saddled with seven layers of cracking, yellow-brown varnish, and possibly nicked by

the well meaning, albeit maligning hands of art restorers. His work landed him a day alone with the Italian Renaissance painter’s woman of ambiguous expression, and a shadowy meeting deep in the bowels of a Swiss bank.

UCSD research physicist John Asmus speaks to the Torrey Pines of La Jolla Rotary Club about his research to help determine the veracity of a second ‘Mona Lisa.’ Pat Sherman

Early Work Asmus began his career at San Diego’s General Atomics in 1960, where the physics student got a summer job with a team working to send an astronaut to Saturn by 1970, via the nuclear-powered spacecraft, Orion (the program

fizzled after 1963, when the Soviet Union, U.K. and U.S. signed a treaty banning nuclear weapons testing in outer space). Asmus’ career at General Atomics shifted to working on what was, at

You’ve got mail!

La Jolla educators say e-mail is best way to reach teachers By Ashley Mackin In tech-savvy 2013, getting a note to a teacher is easier than ever. Just click “send.” All San Diego Unified School District teachers have an appointed e-mail address, and administrators say that is the best way to reach them. La Jolla Elementary School Principal Donna Tripi said e-mail is the preferred way to reach her teachers, and that LJES staff checks its e-mail messages at least once a day. Tripi said e-mail works for reporting “absences, issues with homework (though these questions are better answered through guidelines for the assignments that are handed out), medical, behavioral and student-to-student issues, etc.” La Jolla High School Vice Principal Will Hawthorne also said e-mail is a preferred way for parents to reach teachers, though it is just one of many forms of communication available. “Each classroom has a telephone line with voicemail and each teacher has a district e-mail address,” he said. “A handwritten note can be used if appropriate, and I can’t speak for all of the teachers, but e-mail is really the best, quickest form of communication.” He added, however, that each teacher has his or her preferred method of communication and to verify theirs with instructors. One local second grade teacher said e-mail messages work best for her and parents are welcome to send them about birthdays, homework questions, field trips, issues with students they hear about at home, and school events. She said she checks her e-mail at least once a day and tries to get back to parents within 24 hours. In cases of emergencies,

she recommends calling the school, which would patch the call to the classroom or relay the message. “We do a lot of communicating and parents are heavily involved,” she said. “I see that as a positive thing. With open communication there’s less unknown, and, the clearer things are, the easier everything is (for teachers and parents).” She added in cases where a student has divorced parents, it’s especially beneficial because both parents get the same information easily, instead of physical documents being sent to one house or the other. For professional and transparency reasons, e-mail messages are preferred over phone calls, because communications can be documented. The only time she gives out her cellphone number, she said, is for field trips, after which she asks parents to delete it. The district e-mail addresses are typically the teacher’s first initial followed by their last name Still, parents should verify e-mail addresses with teachers.

Would-be candidates prepare for special election following mayor’s resignation Former state Assemblymember Nathan Fletcher was the first to file initial paperwork with the San Diego City Clerk’s Office to run for mayor, following Bob Filner’s Aug. 23 resignation. Filner resigned in light of almost 20 sexual harassment allegations levied against him by women in the past two months, including a prior La Jolla business owner. Filner’s resignation becomes final as of 5 p.m. Aug. 30. Former San Diego City Councilmember Carl DeMaio is weighing whether to break off a planned congressional run against Rep. Scott Peters (D-52nd) next year in order to finish the rest of Filner’s term, while City Council President Todd Gloria, who will be interim mayor until the special election, had not decided whether to run at press time.

DeMaio narrowly lost to Filner in last November’s runoff election. Fletcher, now an executive at Qualcomm, gained nearly a quarter of the votes in the June primary election but failed to make the runoff. City Attorney Jan Goldsmith, Assemblymember Toni Atkins, former state Sen. Christine Kehoe and District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis all have announced they would not run for mayor. A special election must be held within 90 days. The City Clerk’s Office has proposed the election be held Nov. 19, which means candidates would have to file by Sept. 20. If no candidate gets more than 50 percent of the vote in the special election, a runoff would be held between the top two vote-getters. — City News Service

Lung cancer screening guidelines can save lives


ung cancer is the deadliest of all cancers, killing more people than all other cancers combined. Several factors make it so lethal. For one thing, lung cancer is the second most common cancer in both women (after breast) and men (after prostate). And, unfortunately, most cases aren’t discovered until the disease has advanced to a late stage. The leading cause of lung cancer is smoking and the easiest way to lower one’s risk of lung cancer is to simply not smoke — or to quit. Now there may be an approach to earlier, effective detection in people at high risk for lung cancer: Low-dose computed tomography (CT) screenings of the lungs. Recently, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force issued draft recommendations urging annual low-dose CT lung scans for smokers. It’s a significant step. The recommendation is based, in part, on research performed at UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center by Eric Goodman, M.D, and colleagues, who were part of a multi-center clinical trial funded by the National Cancer Institute. The purpose of the National Lung Screening Trial was to compare lung cancer death rates in participants receiving low-dose CT lung scans versus traditional chest X-rays. Trial participants were all current or former smokers between the ages of 55 and 74, with at least a 30 “pack-year” history. (A pack-year is the number of cigarette packs — 20 cigarettes — smoked daily times the number of years. A patient who smoked a pack a day for 30 years would have a 30 pack-year history. Someone who smoked three packs a day for 10 years also has a 30 pack-year history.) Trial findings reported a 20 percent lower death rate from lung cancer among participants who received lowdose CT scans, largely because they received earlier diagnoses of tumors at more treatable stages. That’s important to note. Virtually all recent advances in lung cancer

treatment have been in non-smokingrelated lung cancer. Smoking-related lung cancer remains a major clinical challenge, which makes the need for effective early detection even more urgent. CT scans have been used in clinical practice since the early 1980s, with steady improvement of the technology and image resolution over the years. The latest generation of CT scans can see lung abnormalities as small as two millimeters — the thickness of a nickel. Still, actually detecting evidence of lung cancer remains a daunting task for radiologists. The vast majority of tiny “spots” seen on lungs are not cancer. Far more often they’re things like scarring related to an old case of pneumonia you may not remember. To rule out cancer, follow-up CT scans are ordered to look for subsequent growth. If a spot gets bigger, a biopsy may be needed to confirm diagnosis. There is, of course, concern about radiation exposure. As their name suggests, low-dose CT scans use the minimum radiation levels necessary to produce a viable, informative image. A typical screening is the equivalent of six months of exposure to naturally occurring background radiation. And radiation risk markedly declines after age 50 — when these scans are most likely to occur. The question patients and their doctors must ask is obvious: Does the benefit outweigh the risk? For smokers, the answer would seem to be an unambiguous yes. The task force recommends an annual low-dose lung screening test for people who have a 30 pack-year history of smoking or who have quit within the past 15 years. It’s currently recommended only for this group of people to minimize the limitations of false positive exams and radiation exposure. There are, of course, other risk factors that a diagnostic clinician should take into account as well, such as

exposure to asbestos or radon, prior history of radiation and conditions like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. And, of course, the screening should be conducted at a center with high expertise in CT scans. One of the biggest benefits of lung cancer screenings is the venue and moment. It’s an opportunity for the screening team to talk with a patient about smoking cessation. This is not a trivial point. Even with a 30 pack-year history, it is never too late to quit. A smoker who quits by age 50 can escape up to half of the health consequences of smoking. Quitting by age 65 can help avoid more than 20 percent of the health consequences of the person who

continues to smoke. We know that quitting is hard but the long-term payoff is indisputable. At a minimum, all smokers getting a lowdose CT scan should also call the California Smokers Helpline (1-800-NOBUTTS). The original work showing the effectiveness of the Smokers Helpline came from research at our own cancer center. It is never too late to quit the habit and reduce your chance of getting lung cancer. — Scott M. Lippman, MD, is Director of UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center.

Peripheral Neuropathy According to the Neuropathy Association, peripheral neuropathy (PN) is a common disorder that affects more than 20 million Americans. There are 3 types of peripheral nervesmotor, sensory and autonomic. These nerves are responsible for transmitting messages to and from the spinal cord to muscles then back to the brain. Many cases of PN can not be cured, however early diagnosis can help control progression and the effects on daily living. Physical therapy (PT) can be beneficial in treating the following symptoms of PN; numbness, pain, gait and balance deficits, hypersensitivity, joint stiffness, endurance and mobility impairments and more. The physical therapists at Ability Rehab are specialized in treating PN and other neurological conditions. Your therapist will perform a full evaluation, assessing gait, mobility, pain, proprioception, range of motion, and flexibility to create an individualized treatment plan.Treatment may include, but is not limited to: manual therapy, gait and balance training, spinal mobilizations, ultrasound, e-stim and a recommended home exercise program. P.S. If you are experiencing any of the aforementioned symptoms, contact your neurologist to find out if PT is right for you.

From Mona Lisa, A4 the time, the world’s most powerful laser (located in Sorrento Valley). While working on the laser one day, he received a call from art collector and oil tycoon J. Paul Getty, who was transferring his collection from his Sutton Place manor in England to California. Getty needed help dating some of his paintings, including a Rembrandt. Using X-ray examination techniques (commonly used by art authenticators), Asmus helped date the Rembrandt, and also obtained an untarnished image of the painting underneath (while bankrupt, Rembrandt frequently reused his panels). When the economy and other factors put a damper on laser testing, Asmus decided to pursue a side career in art authentication. At UCLA, where he had been a guest lecturer, Asmus met Carlo Pedretti, one of the world’s premier experts on da Vinci. The two began using computer imaging and other techniques to authenticate works by Rembrandt and other artists. At one point Pedretti was helping Lord

Kenneth Clark catalog Queen Elizabeth’s collection of da Vinci’s drawings at Windsor Castle. Clark had repeatedly requested that the Louvre remove layers of varnish from the Mona Lisa that had discolored it over the years, so he could gaze upon the ‘real Mona Lisa’ before he died. He eventually asked Asmus and Pedretti if they could use their techniques to create an unvarnished image of the Mona Lisa. To accomplish this, they first needed a high-quality archival photograph of the work. However, after tapping Pedretti’s contacts at the Louvre for three years, no such image was forthcoming. Enter Cronkite In the early 1980s, retired CBS anchor Walter Cronkite visited the campus of Scripps Institution of Oceanography (where Asmus’ laboratory was then located) to film research there for his TV show, “Universe.” The show’s producer told Asmus Cronkite was disappointed because he had heard that the Mona Lisa had been restored, though

a restorer. “I spent several years of my life gazing at the dirty Mona Lisa and the clean Mona Lisa and one of the things that really caught my attention was a bridge off her left shoulder,” said Asmus, who would travel to Italy several times searching for that bridge, to no avail. He would eventually find it in Balboa Park (in a painting by an American artist on display at the Timken Museum). The bridge is located near Perugia, Italy, where it is believed da Vinci spent some time working for Caesar Borgia, an ally of Princess Constanza d’Avalos (believed to be one of three potential women to have posed for the Mona Lisa, which also includes da Vinci’s mother and Princess Isabella of Naples). After consulting art historians, nobody would validate or refute Asmus’ theory that Constanza d’Avalos had posed for the Mona Lisa. However, based on his theories, Asmus was invited to give a lecture in Rome about the lost attributes of the Mona Lisa. His notoriety on the subject led him to receive some 50 inquiries from people claiming to be in possession of the “real Mona Lisa,” with explanations as to why the one in the Louvre was a fake. “Most of these I either ignored or found some fairly straightforward reason for discounting,” he said. However, several calls were from attorneys representing the estate of art collector and media mogul Henry Pulitzer, which included a version of the Mona Lisa. They wanted the painting authenticated, to determine how much it was worth when the estate was divided.

Asmus and Pedretti still needed the archival photograph to begin the work. “She said, ‘Is that all? We’ll have Walter call the Louvre,’ ” Asmus recalled. The following Friday, Asmus’ mailbox at UCSD began filling up with archival prints and transparencies of the Mona Lisa. “Even the Egyptology department (at the Louvre) sent me an archival photograph,” he said. CBS still didn’t believe they had an image of the Mona Lisa that was of sufficient quality, so they rented the Mona Lisa for a day. “I had the Mona Lisa to myself in the basement of the Louvre, for one day — and I could do anything I wanted with it, as long as I didn’t touch it,” Asmus said. Asmus returned to California with samples of varnish from the edge of the Mona Lisa, as well as large format photographs, which they scanned using technology available then at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena. Once they removed the distractions from the painting, all sorts of details began to emerge, including the possibility that a necklace or mountains once existed in the painting that had possibly been removed by

| Asmus agreed to meet with Pulitzer’s people in Geneva, Switzerland, where he was driven in a black limousine to the lowest level of a bank’s underground parking garage. “I started feeling like I was in the middle of the ‘Bourne Identity,’ ” Asmus said. “I kept waiting for the guys with machine guns to come out.” The trunk of another limousine popped open and inside was a painting of what is now believed to be da Vinci’s original Mona Lisa (what would come to be known as the “Isleworth Mona Lisa,” named for the London suburb where it was kept early in the last century). Lineage of the Isleworth Mona Lisa Pulitzer had purchased the painting from the late English art connoisseur Hugh Blaker, who acquired it from an English Lord who had gone bankrupt. In 1914, an art critic for the New York Times said Blaker’s Mona Lisa, thought to be a younger version of the woman who posed for the one at the Louvre, was “more delicate, pleasing and beautiful,” Asmus said. The Isleworth also has columns not found in the Louvre version, but which appear in a sketch of the Mona Lisa by da Vinci contemporary, Raphael. Since da Vinci painted duplicates of many of his works, Asmus said it was “not outlandish to suggest that there might be two Mona Lisas,” and “not outlandish to suggest that what became known as the ‘Isleworth Mona Lisa’ may be the other one.” Armed with only photographs he took of the Mona Lisa in the trunk of the black

limo, and using geometric principals and shading and brush stroke analysis, Asmus was able to discern that the same construction principles were used in the design of both Mona Lisas, though applied in different ways. “That suggests that whoever painted the ‘Isleworth Mona Lisa’ was using the same principles, rather than just copying the Louvre one,” he said. Asmus eventually helped broker a deal to have the Isleworth Mona Lisa shipped to the Louvre, so that both versions could be viewed side-by-side, where spectral and infrared imaging, as well as radio carbon dating, was used to confirm they were both created by the same hand. Several years ago, at Asmus’ suggestion, the Pulitzer Foundation also had the FBI use its age regression software to confirm that the face in the Isleworth painting was indeed a younger version of the Louvre Mona Lisa. Additional tests conducted a year ago, including one by a specialist in “sacred geometry,” and one by the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, also confirmed that both the Louvre and Isleworth versions were painted by da Vinci. “The majority of the Leonardo scholars — looking at publications from the past and interviews from the present — feel that Leonardo most likely painted two Mona Lisas,” Asmus said. “I would say at this point there’s vastly more data supporting the contention of the Pulitzer Foundation (for the Arts) that this is the other Mona Lisa that people have been searching for.”

AMC La Jolla opens with upgrades


MC Theatres La Jolla 12, at 8657 Villa La Jolla Drive, is striving to become the best way to experience a movie in San Diego. Every seat in the theater is now a recliner, and AMC removed some seating in each auditorium to allow guests more space to recline or stretch their legs. Additionally, risers have been added to give auditoriums the popular stadium-style feel, and to help ensure every seat has the best possible view of the screen.

At the MacGuffins Bar, adults 21 and older can purchase a beer, glass of wine or cocktail. Guests can also take their drink into the auditorium as they watch their film. (Select auditoriums are designated as 21-and-older for this purpose.) In a few weeks, the AMC La Jolla 12 will institute a reserved seating policy, which will help guests secure seats early as demand for tickets increases. For more information about the changes at AMC La Jolla 12, or to purchase tickets, visit — Ashley Mackin

A Special Wellness Report New Medicine Based On An 88-Year Old Theory By Albert Einstein Can Help Almost Everyone Who Is Sick Or Injured!


hat you are about to read may be the most important information you’ve ever read. Here is why.

Professional Results In a Small, Easy to Use Package! Call 1-800-303-6923, Code 2040 For Your FREE Information Report.

Albert Einstein was, quite possibly, the most intelligent person who ever lived. His theories and ideas were so far ahead of his time, that even now, the smartest scientists alive are still discovering his value.

Dr. Larry Lytle himself has written and compiled a FREE REPORT in which he explains to you exactly how and why low-level laser therapy works. Dr. Lytle will show you some unbelievable “before� and “after� pictures of people who %*##'#"(&#! '

One of his theories published in 1917, worked out the theory of how lasers function. However, it was not until '   '!"#!###*!"##$"! was developed by an American scientist. Since then, scientists and inventors have developed many types of lasers and all kinds of uses for them. They can be used as a scalpel that is so delicate, it can be used on the eyes of human beings. Lasers are used to read price codes at your local supermarkets. And they’re used to play music and video on your CD’s and DVD’s. But now, there is a new type of laser so effective against human disease and injury that it is rapidly changing the practice of medicine. This is a new type of low-level laser which produces an unfocused light that has been...

Registered With The FDA To Be 100% Safe! Low-level lasers use less than one watt of power and they produce what can best be described as a “Healing Light�. !""&#$"#*"! #&#" “Healing Light� can potentially help reverse the damage done by human sickness and disease. As you probably know, our entire bodies are made up of cells. The health of all human cells is based on energy. If your cells don’t receive enough energy, they will weaken and the body will become sick. Call 1-800-303-6923, Code 2040.

Be One Of The First 200 To Call & Receive A Free DVD! For you to be healthy, what your cells need is exactly the right kind and the right amount of energy. Every time you #$!!"#!'+&#'$!" is disrupted. Until the proper type and amount of energy is restored, you will remain sick or injured. That’s what a low-level laser device does. It re-energizes the cells in your body with the right kind and proper amount of healing energy. It may surprise you to learn that low level lasers are...

Used By Doctors To Heal Their Patients In The Fastest Way Possible! Could you guess what kind of doctors use the highest percent of low-level lasers on their patients? It’s doctors involved in sports medicine. Why? The answer is simple. You see, doctors involved in sports medicine often have to get their patients better in the fastest way humanly possible because every day he remains “unhealthy� can cost the sports organization millions of dollars. But here’s something exciting! You don’t actually need to go to a doctor to get laser therapy. If you want to you can buy one of these devices and use it on yourself. The best ones come with simple, easy-to-follow instructions and can be used by almost any person with average intelligence.

For some people, a free report and information like this can mark the beginning of an entirely new life... pain-free and full of energy. For others, it can make the difference of living a healthy life compared to a low-energy life of sickness and disease.

Perhaps the best low-level lasers in the world have been invented by a doctor named Larry Lytle. He has studied lasers and human health for years, and Dr. Lytle is, without question, one of the most knowledgeable people in the world about low-level lasers... and... how they can be used... To Help Almost Every Health Problem Ever

And, for those who live with enormous pain every day ... this free report could truly guide them to a miracle! But even if you are not sick, not injured, or not in pain, you should still order this report. After all, it is 100% free. And almost nobody lives out their life without having at least some kind of sickness or injury.

Experienced By A Human Being!

Dr. Lytle believes (as do many other people) low-level laser therapy will become the medicine of the future. If you hold a low-level laser device against the skin of your body and turn it on, you will be able to see the laser light... but... you will not be able to feel it. There probably won’t even be a sensation of warmth. Laser light is as #"#""$##!+'$#! # of view, it is quite possible it is more effective than drugs or surgery. Low-level laser therapy is not just the medicine of the future. For many people who know about it, it is the “medicine� they use now. The problem of trying to explain the healing powers of low-level laser therapy is...

It Works So Well On So Many Different Problems, It Seems Like It Couldn’t Possibly Be True!

But it is true! As mentioned earlier, all injury and illness creates an interruption of energy to the cells of the human body. The body will never recover until the proper amount and type of energy is restored to these cells. But once that energy is restored... The Body Can Recover

From Almost Anything!

With the correct equipment, properly used, low level lasers have been clinically shown to reduce pain, reduce +# !" $! !' !"  permeability (so that the nutrients the cell needs to heal can get into the cell) and even help correct faulty DNA!* What you have just read is a very simplistic (almost childish) explanation of low-level laser therapy, of how it works, and what it can do for you. But this is something that needs to be explained to you much more accurately by a real expert. This is information which just might help relieve you of any disease and might possibly save your life and the life of your loved ones. And best of all, you can... Get This

More business transitions underfoot in the Village By Pat Sherman Two businesses geared toward people with healthy, active lifestyles have opened in La Jolla, while a staple eatery closed its doors and other mainstays are expanding their horizons. People who have questioned the curious presence of orange bicycles and orange-clad mimes in the Village this summer need look no further than longtime La Jolla fitness instructor, Billy Borja — the man behind the guerilla marketing campaign. Borja, formerly of “Sweat,” is a little more than a month away from opening Southern California’s first franchise location of Orangetheory Fitness (7734 Girard Ave., Suite C). The one-hour workouts are broken into intervals of cardiovascular and strength training, using treadmills, rowing machines, TRX suspension bands and free weights. The heart-rate monitored sessions are designed to burn up to 900 calories an hour by keeping heart rates in a target zone that stimulates metabolism and increases energy, Borja said.

Since 1972, hundreds of seniors chose locally owned Chateau La Jolla Inn to comfortably gain a more relaxed lifestyle while maintaining their independence. Residents release home owner responsibilities (yard and garden maintenance, housekeeping and pool cleaning) to experience relaxed living on a 2.5-acre setting three blocks away from culturally rich La Jolla Village and one block away from the beach. Certified nurses are available 24/7 to assist residents in an emergency and there is a clerk at front desk 24/7. About 100 residents call Chateau La Jolla Inn home. It provides unfurnished studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom leased apartments. All apartments have a fully equipped kitchenette. The inn also offers 15 furnished apartments for seasonal senior visitors to rent nightly, weekly or monthly.

Chateau La Jolla Inn provides residents with breakfast 7-9 a.m. each day. In addition, the inn has a full-service hotel-

style dining room where residents can order a la carte for lunch (11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.) or dinner (5-7 p.m.) or opt for a meal plan.

Leases include all utilities, cable TV, weekly housekeeping service (vacuuming, dusting, bathroom cleaning and linen change). “Most residents are from our backyard and just about everything they want to do is right at their fingertips,” said Kim Hollingsworth, director of leasing. “And we have complimentary limousine service for shopping and transportation outings on weekends, where we take residents to events around San Diego County, including museum visits, to Julian, and whatever happens to be going on.” Chateau La Jolla Inn is a 55-plus senior community with a modern design and decor. The average age of residents is 82-85. The secured facility offers garage parking, a therapy pool with daily exercise (where residents can bring in a physical therapist or a masseuse), and fee-free laundromats, which are sprinkled around the property. — The Chateau La Jolla Inn at 233 Prospect St. is available to tour by calling Kim Hollingsworth at (858) 459-4451 to schedule an appointment.

Mission Bay Aquatic Center updates fleet with five boats From Aquatic Center Reports

The center continues its 30-year partnership with premier boat manufacturer Nautique. The Mission Bay Aquatic Center, a service provided by the Associated Students of San Diego State University and University of California San Diego Recreation, has renewed its 30-year partnership with watersports boat manufacturer Nautique and will annually update its fleet with five of the company’s newest models. “Nautique is the top wakeboard boat manufacturer in the country,” said Kevin Straw, director of the Mission Bay Aquatic Center. “Through this partnership, we are able to introduce our wakeboard and waterski students to top-of-the-line boats and Nautique is quickly able to see how the boats perform over what would be a lifetime of use.” Through its summer watersports camps and year-round classes, the Mission Bay Aquatic Center annually trains 2,000 adults and children how to wakeboard and waterski each year, and each boat easily racks up hundreds of hours of use each year.

The average family that owns a boat will use it about 700 to 750 hours in their lifetimes. As part of the agreement, Nautique will initially provide the Mission Bay Aquatic Center with four Super Nautique 210 models, designed for wakeboarding, and a Sport Nautique 200, a hybrid model designed for both wakeboarding and waterskiing. New boats will be rotated into the fleet each year. Located in Mission Beach, the Mission Bay Aquatic Center is the world’s largest waterfront instructional facility and a regional boating safety center for the California Department of Boating and Waterways. The Mission Bay Aquatic Center offers classes and rentals in wakeboarding, surfing, stand-up paddling, sailing, kayaking, rowing and windsurfing to more than 15,000 local university students, San Diego residents and visitors per year. It also offers youth watersports and marine science summer camps in partnership with the YMCA. For more information, visit or or

Cast will read from an Alzheimer’s drama to raise funds for research

A star cast will take the stage at Shiley Theatre on the campus of the University of San Diego, 6:45 p.m. Friday, Sept. 27 for an ensemble reading of Act 1 of “Surviving Grace,” an original play by comedy writer Trish Vradenburg (“Designing Women,” “Family Ties,” “Kate and Allie”), and cofounder of USAgainstAlzheimer’s, a national advocacy organization committed to stopping Alzheimer’s by 2020. Based on Vradenburg’s experience as a caregiver to her mother who died of Alzheimer’s in 1992, “Surviving Grace” sheds light on the emotional ups and downs that 15.4 million Alzheimer’s caregivers in the United States go through each day. The cast includes local philanthropist Darlene Shiley, Helen Reddy, Diane Rehm, Marilu Henner, Susan Taylor, Robert Foxworth and Jim Laslavic. Proceeds from tickets sales will benefit Shiley-Marcos Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center at UC San Diego and WomenAgainstAlzheimer’s The production is presented by USAgainstAlzheimer’s, which is mobilizing individual, political, business and

civic leaders to achieve the goal of ending Alzheimer’s by 2020, and B.A.B.E.S “Beating Alzheimer’s By Embracing Science,” an organization dedicated to harnessing the power of women to beat Alzheimer’s by raising funds to support the most promising Alzheimer’s re-

search. The evening will begin with a reception at 6 p.m., followed by the reading and dinner with the cast at 8:30 p.m. To purchase tickets (from $150) or to learn about sponsorship options, visit: show/sandiego

Girls: 5 tips for staying safe at college


am sharing some potentially lifesaving information I think students, parents, teachers and friends of college-age girls will want to know about. Coeds don’t know they face a 1-in-4 risk of sexual assault, 1-in-3 risk of dating abuse or other random violence. One nonprofit, Just Yell Fire, founded by Dallas Jessup (a recent college graduate who launched Just Yell Fire when she was still in high school), has released the following Dallas timely tips and has a free, stayJessup safe film online that has been lauded by schools and law enforcement nation-wide.

Let’s push for a Trader Joe’s in town Members of the La Jolla Community, I have talked with many of you about our common desire to have a Trader Joe’s in the Village. I have written to Trader Joe’s, but received no response to my suggestion that they contact the owners of the Heinz Gietz property, which I understand is going out of business. I do not know its availability, but there is a realtor’s sign on it. There is parking available there and it appears to me that the building and its service bay area could be remodeled creatively into a Trader Joe’s. If you agree, please write Trader Joe’s and/or comment in the Light! If Trader Joe’s knows we want them, they perhaps will more seriously consider opening a store in the Village. Glen McFadden Rasmussen, Esq. La Jolla

More support for banning leaf-blowers in La Jolla Ah yes, the leaf-blowers! I hear them as early as 8 in the morning and as late as 7 in the evening — and it’s not music to my ears. Yes, let’s implement a NO LEAF-BLOWER law. It’s a disease. My garden maintenance people blow the debris into the corners, underneath the hedges — wherever — and leave it up to me to take a garden broom to remove it, while the gardeners of my neighbors blow everything underneath the fence to my side, another extra job for me, another nuisance. When I ask them to please not use this fuelburning machine, I am told that if they had to sweep with a rake, they would eventually suffer from rotator cuff injury and pain. I wonder what we all did before this machine from hell was invented? People are oblivious to this noise and so much more! Consideration for others is something of the past. The dust and the sand is everywhere as stated, and I am one for joining the people who wish to stop this. Isabella Miram La Jolla

Leaf-blower ban gets my vote! Rand, Eric, Howard, Neva — my buddies ... you are not alone. There is little in this fine

GUEST COMMENTARY 1) Parties: A great social life is part of the college experience, but remember, never put down your beverage and come back to it. Daterape drugs are prevalent on the scene and are impossible to detect without a test kit. Go to parties as a group, watch out for each other, and leave together. Alcohol is involved in the majority of university sexual assaults and a nice guy can quickly turn into a different and violent person when he is under the influence. 2) ATMs and Parking Lots: Cash machines and parking lots are frequent stops in college. Unfortunately, the bad guys see ATMs in less-traveled areas as a hunting

OUR READERS WRITE town that raises my ire as much as the unnecessarily disturbing leaf-blowing noise, filth and pollution. My guess is that there isn’t more buzz about this because the majority of people aren’t around to see exactly what their yard maintenance crews are up to during their visit. Or perhaps it’s selfish indifference? More likely, follow the money: It takes the crews a lot less time and effort to blow than it used to take them to rake, sweep, and bag. So, there’s money to be made. I live in a very beautiful and quaint, yet tightly-configured, neighborhood with condos and apartment buildings surrounding my little house and yard on all sides. I get blasted with the leaf blowing in the neighborhood, from ALL SIDES, EVERY DAY. I love leaving my windows open during the day, but the proximity to my neighbors and subsequently all the dust and debris being blown around from ALL SIDES, EVERY DAY leaves me a little edgy and is probably contributing to my ongoing sinus infections. I work from home so I’m constantly jumping up to close a door or window during conference calls or simply to control the dust, which kind of makes you feel a little captive. I cringe to think what is being blown into my yard and home, what I am breathing. I am shocked that La Jolla hasn’t banned these by now. Most of my colleagues and friends throughout SoCal and across the country live in blower-free zones. What is wrong, here? C’mon La Jollans — you deserve better! Julia H. WindanSea

Pictures are worth a thousand words in push to clean the Village As a former reporter at a weekly newspaper, I know there is always a need for ways to fill copy space. My idea for the La Jolla Light is to create a weekly feature called, “Fix-it Photo.” Readers would be invited to send in a photo of a problem in La Jolla that should be fixed (ie., potholes, overflowing trash cans, abandoned lots, etc.). Then, the Light would later visit that area to see if the problem was fixed. This feature would encourage community interaction and maybe lead to a better La Jolla.

ground; ditto dark parking lots, the site of a high percentage of campus assaults. Make a very-public ATM your cash source and either avoid poorly lit or deserted parking lots or go with a friend. For predator avoidance, there’s safety in numbers. Try to avoid parking next to vans, or if one has parked next to you, go back and ask a security guard to escort you to your car. 3) Hall Cruising: A big trend in on-campus violence comes from hall cruising, where innocent appearing predators gain access to dorms, sororities or residence halls by trusting residents. They then cruise the halls looking for unlocked doors to find their victim.

See College Tips, A19

James Jensen La Jolla Editor’s Note: We just talked about that very concept at a staff meeting, the deterrent was singling out (embarrassing) businesses or residents, but I think we could do it in a way that protects the violator from scorn. Stay tuned, it will happen!

Mayor Bob Filner will not be missed “Knowing when to leave can be the smartest thing that anyone can learn.” However, it’s apparent that Bob Filner didn’t have the good grace to step down as San Diego’s Mayor, after many allegations of sexual harassment. Instead Filner had to be coerced to resign. No doubt, Filner is in denial of his sexual harassment charges, as he claims awkwardness and hubris led to his offensive behavior. Bah humbug! A reality check may define his unorthodox conduct as that of being lecherous. At 70 years old, Filner should have known better and kept his hands, as well as unwelcome sexual advances, to himself. Filner’s resignation is a victory for all women. Yes indeed, we have all had our fill of Filner. Good riddance! JoAnn Lee Frank Clearwater, Fla.

Dining locally will keep our restaurants open I recently had the pleasure of having dinner at Voce del Mare in Bird Rock. Over the last 12 years I have seen at least three or four restaurants come and go at that address, none have been able to make it. However, this time the restaurant has had a complete, lovely makeover. It is classy, has a terrific Italian menu and the food is really good. I would really like to see this restaurant make it … we could use a classic Italian restaurant in that area. Mary Pat DesRoches La Jolla

From College Tips, A18 Put a stop to this type of violence by always locking your dorm room door and never giving strangers access to your building. 4) Campus Shuttle: Late night library or social visits are part of college life but coming home you are often alone and while campuses seem like islands of safety, they are open to outsiders from every direction. Either walk with friends or take advantage of an available campus shuttle when you are crossing campus at night. 5) View “Just Yell Fire”: The video at www. raises awareness of the many dangers girls face at college and offers avoidance strategies. Also included is a Dating Bill of Rights to remind people they have rights in relationships, e.g. to report violence against them, to have friends outside of a relationship, to help stop dating abuse. The film contains some street fighting get-away tips from expert martial artists that any one can use to get away from someone twice their size.

Sanford-Burnham loses co-founder, ‘scientific trailblazer’


anford-Burnham Medical Research Institute announced that it’s co-founder and “early guiding light,” Lillian Fishman, died Saturday night, Aug. 24. She was 98. Lillian and her late husband, Dr. William Fishman, came to La Jolla in 1976 to pursue their dream of launching an independent research institute dedicated to understanding the origins of cancer by investigating cell development, then named the La Jolla Cancer Research Foundation. The Fishmans believed in the value of Lillian Fishman collaborative science in a creative environment. 1915-2013 Across nearly four decades, their dream evolved into the current SanfordBurnham Medical Research Institute. In the process, it helped transform biomedical research, and saved countless lives, the institute said, in a release, adding that Fishman was a “scientific trailblazer in every sense” and “a beloved presence at the institute.” A celebration of Fishmans’s life will take place at Sanford-Burnham’s La Jolla campus at a date to be announced later this week. Editor’s Note: The annual Fishman Fund Award Ceremony and Reception, which recognizes Fishman Fund award winners and thanks donors, will take place 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 26 at Sanford Burnham Medical Research Institute, 10901 N. Torrey Pines Road. The event concludes with a hors d’oeuvres reception.This year’s hosts are Reena Horowitz and Jeanne Jones. Seating is limited. RSVP: (858) 646-3100, ext. 3420.


Dr. Seuss’ stolen Lorax statue recovered, found in canyon A 2-foot-tall, 300-pound “Lorax” statue stolen from the oceanfront La Jolla home of Dr. Seuss’ widow more than a year ago was found Aug. 21, and returned to the Geisel estate. Audrey Geisel and a groundskeeper had noticed the custom-made bronze statue was missing from the garden of the estate on Encelia Drive March of 2012. The chain of events that led to the recovery of the $10,000 figurine began this month when a 22-year-old man walked into a police station in Bozeman, Montana, and stated he had knowledge of crimes committed in Hawaii and San Diego police Lt. Kevin Mayer said. The information led detectives to a canyon area covered in brush off the 7500 block of Country Club Drive in La Jolla, where the statue was recovered and returned to the Geisel estate. The investigation into who took the statue is ongoing and charges are pending. Anyone with information is asked to call police at (858) 522-1700. — City News Service

Man pistol-whipped, shot in hand at La Jolla motel A 25-year-old male was pistol-whipped and shot in the hand by a known 24-year-old male suspect during an altercation that occurred between them at around 5:30 p.m. Aug. 20 at the La Jolla Biltmore in Bird Rock. The men were fighting over a female companion. According to San Diego police, the suspect barged into the motel room where the victim and his girlfriend were staying, and was pistol-whipping the victim when the gun fired, shooting

the victim in the hand. Police said the suspect and the suspect’s girlfriend fled in a gold SUV. The victim was taken to Scripps La Jolla Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. — City News Service

Veggie Grill has opened in the Westfield UTC Mall. Pictured is their Santa Fe Crispy Chickin’ sandwich. This is the first location of the vegetarian restaurant chain to open in San Diego. Another is slated to open in Del Mar. Courtesy

From Businesses, A20 For more information or a schedule of classes, stop by their Girard Avenue storefront daily from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. n Meanwhile, San Diego’s first location of Santa Monica-based vegetarian restaurant franchiser, Veggie Grill, has opened at Westfield UTC Mall (at ground level near Eureka! and ArcLight Cinemas). The casual eatery features 100-percent plant-based protein dishes, including “beef” and “chicken” tacos, sandwiches, wraps and salads. The entire menu is free of

animal fat, dairy, eggs, cholesterol, trans fats, hormones and high-fructose corn syrup, according to a release. “Veggie Grill is out to break the stereotype of bland vegetarian food,” said Greg Dollarhyde, chief energizing officer of Veggie Grill. n The newly expanded, 445,000square-foot Terminal 2 at Lindbergh Field airport includes an outlet of La Jolla’s Warwick’s bookstore, and Pannikin Coffee & Tea. n On Pearl Street, residents said goodbye this month to Ortega’s Place Mexican restaurant at 621 Pearl St. A sign on the window thanking

customers said, “We have enjoyed our time here,” and that “ a new and exciting concept is coming soon!” Meanwhile, renovations to what will be the new home of El Pescadoro Fish Market and restaurant are underway 634 Pearl St. (the former site of Marrakesh restaurant). The new location is expected to be open by Jan. 1, 2014. The original location across the street at 627 Pearl St. remains open. n Sur La Table also opened Aug. 28 at 7643 Girard Ave. The upscale culinary shop specializes in hard-tofind kitchen equipment and cookware, and offers an array of cooking classes.

From Gas Station, A1 medium residential development (one dwelling unit per 3,000 square feet of lot area). Though LaCava said during the Aug. 13 DPR meeting that the property would be developed as one complete parcel, associate attorney Leslie Gaunt (from Hamilton’s law firm) argued that the higher residential density permitted in the PDO zone along Pearl Street cannot be redistributed into the portion zoned for lower density at the rear of the property “without regard to zone boundaries.” To proceed with development, the owner is seeking approval for a coastal development permit (CDP) and a tentative map (which shows the design and improvement of a proposed project and the existing conditions in and around it). However, in order to redistribute the densities between the two zones, Gaunt said the project also requires a site development permit (SDP). Gaunt went on to argue that, per San Diego Municipal Code, findings could not be made to approve the SDP, nor the CDP and tentative map, and that the design is “not consistent with the policies, goals and objectives of the La Jolla Community Plan and Local Coastal Program.” “It literally doesn’t fit here,” Gaunt said, adding that, “the La Jolla Community Plan recommends avoiding abrupt transitions in scale between commercial buildings and adjacent residential areas,” in favor of gradual transitions. LaCava said that by setting the majority of the building back from the property line by 11 to 14 feet, and setting the third story back from the rest of that building, the architect had softened the transition from new development to old. Though the properties immediately south of the site on Eads are both one-story cottages, LaCava noted that the third house is two stories, as are other homes further along Eads. Connie Branscomb, who has owned a home on the same side of Eads as the proposed development since 1967, said that after consulting with various land-use experts she also believes the redistribution of higher density zoning from the front of the property to the rear is circumspect, if not a direct violation of city code. Potential parking impacts? Branscomb also contends that the project does not allow enough parking for the restaurant and retail spaces, and would cause patrons and visitors to park along Eads Avenue. “As it is, there’s no parking for the residents on Eads,” she said, echoing the concern of a resident on nearby Fay Avenue, who said businesses take up most of the on-street parking on Fay until 6 p.m. Gaunt also argued that project architect Alex Faulkner calculated the parking requirement incorrectly, shortchanging the project by five spaces in the proposed underground garage. However, LaCava said the architect’s calculations are correct because the project does not fall within a beach overlay zone, as Gaunt had suggested. At least seven people indicated that they would like to see the driveway to the garage located off the back alley, instead of on Eads, where traffic is heavy. DPR Chair Paul Benton, who expressed concerns with the project’s bulk and scale, said he was “not convinced” that the garage entry couldn’t

La Jolla business owner and resident Doug Moranville stands near his Eads Avenue home, adjacent a Unocal 76 gas station. The property owner wants to remove the station and add a mix of condos, retail and restaurant space. Moranville and his wife, Karen, oppose the size and density of the project. Pat Sherman be located off the alley. “I think all the issues that were raised (here) went through our head when we were designing this project,” LaCava said, noting that a requested traffic study for the project was underway. Gaunt and some residents in attendance also said the project lacks adequate open space, as recommended in the La Jolla Community Plan and Planned District Ordinance. The project states that a 20-foot by 20-foot open space (or “view triangle”) at the corner of Eads and Pearl would be used for restaurant patio seating, Gaunt noted. Benton said that open, outdoor spaces are “not excluded from commercial uses.” “I’m not excluding it,” Gaunt said. “I’m just saying it’s too small for the project size.” Health concerns? Gaunt also noted a leakage of hazardous materials from an underground gas tank at the site that was listed on the State Water Resources Control Board’s GeoTracker website. The site says the leak was reported in March of 2007 and the case closed in July of 2008, and that “corrective action” in compliance with county health and safety code was carried out, and “no further action related to the petroleum release is required.” However, Gaunt expressed “serious concerns about (project) excavation disturbing contaminated soils, resulting in migration of contaminated soils.” LaCava countered, “Do you let it continue to be a gas station and let the problem get worse, or have it cease to be

a gas station?” Compromise? DPR member Angeles Leira asked whether there was a way to shift some of the condos from the rear of the project to the front building. “If you cannot have the flexibility of changing things around, that’s telling me that maybe this project is too dense and you could maybe reduce the residential (units),” she said, asking LaCava how many condos would be lost if the third story were removed. LaCava said the loss would be two, three-bedroom condos. DPR member Bob Collins lauded the design, but said he would be “more comfortable” with the project if the rear building were only two stories. DPR member Diane Kane suggested that renderings of the project may make it appear more bulky and boxy that it would be from a pedestrian perspective. However, she cautioned, though the project may meet allowable code and zoning specifications, “good math does not always make good design.” In the end, LaCava said he would confer with his client and present the project to the DPR again either during the Sept. 10 or Sept. 17 meeting. The DPR meets 4 p.m. the second and third Tuesday of every month at La Jolla Rec Center, 615 Prospect St. For updates on city actions related to this project, contact city project manager Paul Godwin at and ask to be placed on the mailing list: Conger CDP & TM, PN 294307.

Test the Waters: Two fund-raising swims planned for September By Ashley Mackin Two community swims are on the horizon at La Jolla Cove, both organized by local charitable organizations. The first is the 24th annual Bob Litchfield Swim, sponsored by the La Jolla Sunrise Rotary, on Sept. 5. The second is the 83rd La Jolla Kiwanis Rough Water Swim on Sept. 8. Robert Litchfield Swim The La Jolla Sunrise Rotary’s one-mile swim starts at 6:30 a.m. (taking the sunrise part seriously) at the La Jolla Cove and ends in front of the La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club. Viewers generally stand on the beach finish line and cheer the swimmers as they exit the ocean, said Mark Powell, Program Chair for the La Jolla Sunrise Rotary. He explained the event is named for Robert Litchfield, a humanitarian and teacher at La Jolla High School. “Robert’s inspiration teaching and compassionate approach to life inspired thousands of students to become caring, considerate and contributing members of society,” he said. “Robert Litchfield was dedicated to his students, but his life was cut short after a bout with cancer.” Robert’s widow, Paula, will participate in the swim. Keeping Litchfield’s passion alive, the proceeds from the $60 registration and any donations go to support the San Pasqual Academy, the first and only residential education center for foster youth in the country. The Escondido facility has familystyle homes with 184 beds and a campus

La Jolla Rotarians prepare for the 2012 sunrise swim. Courtesy with an accredited high school, a computer for each student, a cafeteria, a technology and career information center, an assembly hall, recreation fields, and a swimming pool. “Teens live and learn at the Academy as they prepare for college and/or a career path,” Powell said. “For many of these students, they will be the first one to graduate high school in their family. Ninetythree percent of these kids graduate high school and 98 percent of the graduating students go on to higher learning.” Rough Water Swim For the 83rd year, the La Jolla Rough Water Swim will start and end at La Jolla Cove. Swimmers participate in at least one of five events, starting at 9 a.m. with the 250-yard junior swim for boys and girls 12 and under. The following events include the one-mile women’s masters classic, for

women 19 and older at 11 a.m.; the onemile men’s masters classic, for men 19 and older at noon; the three-mile “Gatorman” Championship, for swimmers 13 and older 1:30 p.m.; and one-mile amateur swim for swimmers 13-18 years old at 1:35 p.m. The Rough Water Swim started in 1916 in preparation for the World’s Fair with seven male swimmers. Last year, more than 1,300 swimmers participated. Kiwanis media relations spokesman Bill Uncapher said the appeal lies in both the history and the challenge. Designated strictly as a community event, the Rough Water Swim still operates under 1920s bylaws (which includes not allowing wetsuits). Under said bylaws, children are allowed to participate despite their financial means, so part of the registration goes to underwriting youth participation. The longevity and the challenge has given the La Jolla Rough Water Swim some notoriety, Uncapher added. When the swim started, he said, about 95 percent of participants were from San Diego. Now, it’s down to 40 percent, and that participants come from Arizona, Texas, New York, Massachusetts, Hawaii and Australia. Furthermore, a number of Olympic athletes have used this event in the past to test themselves. Those wanting to sign up for the swim can do so 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Sept. 7 at the Chase Bank, 7777 Girard Ave. in a last chance to participate in what Uncapher calls, “a pure community event, and an impassioned event.”

La Jolla High Vikings start season with confidence By Ashley Mackin The players on the La Jolla High football teams are amped. Coming off what Coach Jason Carter called “a very productive” scrimmage against La Jolla Country Day on Aug. 23, the guys are ready to kick off this season. “I think we’re going to shock a lot of people because it’s not going to be like the teams that have been here before; it’s a different look from the offense standpoint and defense standpoint,” said newly appointed Carter. Outside linebacker Ian Beed agreed. “I think this is finally the season we’ve been waiting for,” he said. ”I know we’ve been saying that for a couple of years, but now we have real change.” That change stems from the training strategy imposed by Coach Carter. The players trained and conditioned since the spring, and they feel stronger for it. After the Aug. 23 scrimmage, Beed said, “I felt really conditioned … like it was easy, I was ready for more, I was begging for more playing time.” Receiver and safety Carlton O’Neal echoed his thoughts. “You could tell our conditioning was helping us out because they were winded and we weren’t,” he said of the Torreys. “As the game went on, we got stronger and stronger and they got weaker and weaker. We’d like to get off to a strong start and stay strong (in future games) and we won’t fade toward the end of the game and we won’t get tired. The other teams won’t be able to keep up with our tempo.” During the scrimmage, the Vikings came in quietly, but really gained momentum in the second

Some football team members (including Coach Jason Carter, center, wearing red cap) gather at a barbecue at La Jolla High School to celebrate the first scrimmages of the season. Ashley Mackin half, eventually coming out on top, winning 56-14. Though Coach Carter said there isn’t one team they are eager to play over another, some players have their eye on the big prize. “We’d like to go get Madison (High School) because they are the state champs,” said O’Neal. “We’d like to steal one from them.” Though looking forward to playing schools like Mount Carmel, left guard Michael Penny said the conditioning would be an advantage for them, no matter who they play. “We know that we are more

conditioned than most teams. We run a fast-paced offense, even if we’re playing teams from (top) schools that have a big selection of kids or private schools that can recruit, we’re confident that we’re in better condition than they are,” he said. “We’re just going to grind them down. They’ll get tired and we’ll come out on top.” A refreshing change in attitude for the Viking’s JV and Varsity players, who Penny said are coming off a three-and-eight season. He called this season “a rebuild.” Further, Beed said he has been playing football at LJHS for

four years and has never been this confident going into a season. A lot of that is thanks to the system — and encouragement — placed by Coach Carter. “They have to be able to play with confidence; they have to be able to play with a sense of urgency and understanding that they belong on the field with the other team,” he said. “They have to know that all the work that they put in is worth it.” So they practice and play with energy, lots of energy. Coach Carter said part of his job to make sure they have it, and show it. Now all they need is the

community’s support. The season opener is 7 p.m. Friday, Aug. 30 against the Mount Carmel High Sundevils at their Poway School District campus. The first home game is 7 p.m. Sept. 13 (did someone say Friday Night Lights?) against Valley Center. “We want to be a big part of this community and we’d like it if people would come down and support us and see how far we can go,” Beed said, “We think we can go really far this season and with the community behind us, we can only go farther.”

section b 10 QUESTIONS

Sue Ball stands ready to lead the fitness mission at La Jolla Y Sue Ball is the new executive director/vice president of the La Jolla YMCA. She began her YMCA career in 1984 as a gymnastics coach at the Y of Metropolitan Little Rock, and quickly advanced to program director and then executive director of the Downtown Little Rock YMCA. She relocated to the YMCA of Central Florida as an executive director of the Wayne Densch YMCA Family Center in Orlando. She then moved to the YMCA of Suncoast in Florida. While there, Sue Ball she was promoted to district vice president where she was responsible for the two northern-most counties and supervised three operating units. Her most recent assignment was as branch executive with the YMCA of Silicon Valley at one of its largest sites. Ball said she enjoys all outdoor activities, especially kayaking. What brought you to La Jolla? I have visited southern California many times and just love the area. When I heard of the La Jolla YMCA Executive Vice President position opening, I immediately called to inquire about it. I was told of the many exciting plans the board and staff have for this Y, and decided to throw my hat in the ring for the position. I am very excited to have been chosen as the person to lead the La Jolla through the upcoming capital projects. What might you add, subtract or improve in the area? That’s easy; a brand new, state-of-the-art YMCA to better serve the needs of this community. Who or what inspires you? Inspiration comes from my work with people and meeting the mission of the YMCA. If you hosted a dinner party for eight, whom (living or deceased) would you invite? My very best friends who live in different parts of the country, but whom I have always stayed connected with. What are some of your favorite movies and/or books? “Gone with the Wind,” “Forest Gump,” for movies, and for books, “Pillars of the Earth,” “The Time Travelers’ Wife,” and “The Mermaid Chair.”


Embracing the jazzy nature of tap dancing, some routines at the Firehouse Y include full-body moves. Ashley Mackin

5, 6, 7, 8 ... La Jolla tap class offers physical, mental and social workout By Ashley Mackin ou’re never too old to dance and have fun,” said fitness instructor Linda Balducci, which is one of the many reasons she attends the Tapping to the Stars classes at the Firehouse YMCA Community Center on Herschel Avenue each week. The Wednesday, women-only program is ideal for physical and mental exercise in a supportive, social environment, said teacher Nancy Cottrell. While learning the dances, ankle flexibility, knee joint and thigh muscle strengthening occurs. “So it’s your whole leg that gets worked,” Cottrell said. “I like Broadway-style tap, where it’s not just your feet and legs involved, but there are ballet movements with your arms. It’s the whole body that’s engaged.”


If you go ■ Beginner Class: Forms in September; three-person minimum required. Women only. ■ Meets: 1:30 p.m. Wednesdays, Firehouse Y, 7877 Herschel Ave. ■ Cost: $70 for four-week session ■ E-mail: ■ Website: The physical challenge is the No. 1 appeal for most participants, including Balducci. A close second is the mental exercise dancing provides. “For our age group, it’s a challenge

to the brain to remember the routines,” she said. “As you get older, the memory goes, and the tapping and the sequences challenge you in a good way. It’s more fun than crossword puzzles.” Because most of the dancers are in their 60s, the commonality lends to camaraderie, making for a supportive, social environment. Before class on Aug. 21, two dancers warmed up together and helped each other with timing. During class, Cottrell led the group through dances they already learned, with quick cues like, “knees up” and “right side.” “The main motivation is having fun, and tap is a very happy form of dance,” Cottrell said, adding that she and some of the dancers in the class danced ballet as children, but find new energy in tap.

Let Inga Tell You

Getting a kick out of youth soccer


La Jolla Cultural Partners

think most parents would agree that there is no greater theater than youth sports. In T-ball, for example, everyone can hit off the tee but no one can field so home runs are the norm even with a one-base-per-overthrow rule. Every base is an overthrow. In fact, my older son’s T-ball coach used to tell the kids to hit the ball and keep running until someone told them to stop. It was a remarkably winning strategy. In my personal view, why would one want to sit through nine yawner innings of adult baseball with a final score of 1-0 when you could see an action-packed cliffhanger ending in 30 to 29? And I humbly submit: where but on the T-ball field at the Y will you ever see an unassisted triple play? But T-ball games are over for the season and now every available open space seems to be populated by youth soccer teams revving up for the fall season. Not long ago while I was sorting through old files, I came across a copy of a letter I had written to a friend when

my younger son, Henri, then age four, first started soccer. Dear Linda, Although I was initially hesitant to have him start team sports so early, Henri has now played the first four out of a 10-game season in a nursery school soccer league. At first I wondered: who are these deranged people who put 4-year-olds in regulation uniforms and have them run up and down a soccer field during nap time? Somehow a basic requirement (or three) of team soccer ought to be that you can 1) talk, 2) do a jumping jack, and 3) know which is your goal. The socks also shouldn’t be taller than you are. Most points were initially scored by each team kicking the ball into their own goal, while the parents ran up and down the sidelines gesturing wildly and screaming, “The OTHER WAY! Go the OTHER WAY!” Just as the poor kids start to get a sense of which way they were going, they change goals at half time. But the kids seemed just as happy to score on their own goal as the other team’s; in fact, just after Henri’s team had lost 10-0, one of his

teammates came running off the field jubilantly declaring, “We won! We won!” Henri came back after the first game (which I hadn’t been able to attend) announcing that his job was “’tecting the goal.” During one game when we had a substitute coach, we had to call a time-out while I loped out into the field and explained to my sobbing, distraught child that the substitute coach’s instructions to defend the goal were the same as ’tecting the goal. (The poor kid just had no idea what that meant.) In another game, the other team’s goalie walked off the field mid-play announcing with barely contained ennui that he didn’t feel like playing any more. This is not an uncommon occurrence. They run up and kick the ball, missing it, and fall down. Some of them are so short they just knee it. None of them have quite grasped that, with the exception of the goalie, this is a “feet only” game; the coach has been trying to convey to them that you cannot just pick up the ball and run. Henri came home from his third game announcing happily that his team “got free goalies” (three goals). Actually, they may just have gotten three

goalies as that is definitely the most hazardous position in the game. Just as the goalie reaches down to get the ball, a kid runs up and accidentally kicks the goalie in the head. It’s very hard being the goalie’s mother. Time-outs are frequently called for players needing to have their shoes tied or their elbows kissed. Definitely unclear on zone defense, both teams end up bunched in a single clump lurching down the field looking like a scrum of disoriented midgets, and often ending up in the equivalent of a 10-car pile-up when one kid trips over another one. In their heart of hearts, I think what the kids like best is the postgame donut stop at Winchell’s. What I couldn’t have known then was that Henri would continue ‘tecting the goal all the way through high school and college and now in adult leagues. I’ve watched hundreds of soccer games over the years but I have to confess: I’ve never enjoyed a season more than the first one. — Look for La Jolla resident Inga’s lighthearted looks at life in La Jolla Light.

Michael ‘Boss Man’ Hardin is the owner of Hodad’s.

Summer Sensation: Hodad’s and Padres at Petco Park By Kelley Carlson here can a person go to revel in America’s favorite pastime while eating at one of the country’s topranked burger joints? Hodad’s at Petco Park. Situated behind Section 205 on the Toyota Terrace level, this laid-back eatery is an offshoot of the famous Ocean Beach location and offers the same quality. Owner Michael “Boss Man” Hardin is at the Petco site each game day to ensure that Hodad’s standards are met, from the ingredients purchased from local mom-and-pop distributors to the friendly employees. Those standards are pretty high — CNN recognizes Hodad’s as one of the top five burger joints in the nation. It’s also a favorite of Guy Fieri, star of “Diners, Driveins and Dives” on the Food Network. Having been featured on episodes of “Diners,” Hardin is often recognized by customers. He has tattoos on much of his body, including a burger on his leg and “BOSS MAN” etched on his knuckles; wears earrings and sports a blond “soul patch.” Patrons enjoy chatting with Hardin, who obliges when asked to pose for photos. His casual, happy-go-lucky approach carries over into his restaurant, named for “a non-surfer who spends time at beaches masquerading as a surfer.” There’s no reason to be hasty here; as the slogan points out, “It’s not life or death, it’s lunch or dinner.”


On The Menu Recipe Each week you’ll find a recipe from the featured restaurant online at Just click ‘Get The Recipe’ at the bottom of the story. n This week’s recipe:

Hodad’s Single Bacon Cheeseburger

Baseball fans won’t miss any of the game; there are seven flat-screen TVs around the dining room and bar area. If the Chargers are playing, one or two monitors may be dedicated to the NFL action. Hodad’s has its fair share of Padres logo paraphernalia on display — including surfboards that hang from the ceiling — but it also exhibits keepsakes from customers, namely license plates. In one corner is a bus that’s converted into a booth — the place to sit, Hardin said. During daylight hours, nearly every table has views of San Diego Bay and the San Diego-Coronado Bridge. When it comes to the Hodad’s cuisine,

Hardin is a seasoned pro, a secondgeneration “Burgermeister,” who has been in the business since his parents opened an eatery in El Cajon in 1969. As the website states, there have been “under 99 gazillion (Hodad’s burgers) sold.” He guarantees the food is fresh. In fact, “my dad (Byron) would say, ‘If these burgers were any fresher, I’d slap them,’” Hardin said with a chuckle. All of them are dressed with mayonnaise, mustard, onion slices, ketchup, pickles, tomatoes and lettuce, unless otherwise specified, and grilled onions can be added. The sizes of the juicy patties vary, from the Mini Cheeseburger to the Double Bacon

Cheeseburger. The latter is so huge, employees warn customers about its enormity. But many people are up for the challenge, anyway. They arm themselves with a stack of napkins and a fork, and possibly a partner. “My dad told me that 90 percent of your taste buds are in your eyeballs,” Hardin said. Part of what makes a Hodad’s burger unique are the bacon patties (rather than strips) that top the beef. The bacon is boiled for 1.5 hours to remove the fat and then cooked until crispy. Another specialty is the Guido Burger, inspired by Fieri. It’s a pastrami burger covered with ketchup, pickles, Swiss cheese, grilled onions and spicy brown mustard. Not a meat eater? There’s grilled cheese or a Veggieburger, aka Unburger, which consists of all the toppings but no beef. For those who prefer no bread, lettuce wraps instead of buns are available. For sides, customers can order large stacks of crispy, golden onion rings and thick-cut fries with a hint of spice. Beverages include sodas, beer, wine and shakes covered with whipped cream and a squirt of chocolate. While many guests are content to lounge in Hodad’s, they’re welcome to sit down at a table, order, and then take their meals back to their stadium seats. PCL Bar & Grill also serves Hodad’s fare. 1229_RALJL

Series puts van Gogh and Cezanne in the spotlight From Athenaeum Reports

Art historian Linda Blair will present a four-lecture series titled, “Vincent van Gogh & Paul Cézanne,” 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays, Sept. 10, 17, 24 and Oct. 1 at the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library, 1008 Wall St. The discussions will examine their art, the role of art in their lives, and the possible relationship between their burdened personalities and the art they produced. For both artists, Paris was the crucible where they defined their artistic vision and refined their technical skills, yet ultimately the tumult and temptations of the city forced these two psychologically fragile painters to flee to the south of France, and there, in the sun-baked towns and lavender fields, each produced his

Vincent van Gogh greatest art. Despite the shared geography of Provence, Van Gogh and Cézanne disdained each other’s work, and indeed, their art differs dramatically — in color, form, treatment of space and brushwork. Both artists shed light on the creative process — Van Gogh due

From Tap Class, B1 “The music is lively and everybody looks like they are having a good time doing it,” Balducci said. “And I enjoy having a good time!” Those interested are welcome to come and watch a class; the advanced class starts at 12:30 p.m. every Wednesday. “Women can be a bit skittish about it; they’ll want to, but think, ‘I can’t do that,’ and that’s not true,” Cottrell said. “With a little bit of motivation, you’ll be doing a dance by your first class.” The more advanced dancers, who’ve been taking classes together for years, perform around San Diego. They occasionally stage shows at senior centers, and participate in the San Diego Senior Talent Show each year. After class, the six or so dancers sometimes shuffle off for a cup of tea (or a glass of wine), continuing to socialize.

History of tap dancing ■ Tap dancing is considered both a form of dancing and percussion music. ■ T he two variations include Broadway tap and jazz tap. Broadway tap focuses more on the dancing, while jazz tap focuses on the sound the shoes make. ■ T ap dancing has roots in English clog dancing and Irish step dancing. ■ T ap dancing gained popularity in the mid-1800s with the rise of minstrel shows. ■ V  audeville shows in the early 1900s also featured tap dancing. ■ D  ue to the two-colored rule, which forbade black people from performing solo, the majority of Vaudeville tap acts were duets. ■ S  hirley Temple became a tap dancing sensation in the 1930s, starring in more than 60 films in 27 years, her first when she was 4 years old.  uring the 1930s, tap dance was integrated with Lindy Hop dancing. “Flying swing ■ D outs” and “flying circles” are Lindy Hop moves with tap footwork. ■ Tap dancing’s popularity began to decline in the 1950s with the rise of rock ‘n’ roll. ■ N  ational Tap Dance Day is celebrated May 25, signed into law by President George H.W. Bush on Nov. 7, 1989. (May 25 was chosen because it is the birthdate of famous tapper Bill “Bojangles” Robinson, 1878-1949.) Sharon Rogers has a great time with Linda Balducci.

Culinary stuff I learned on my summer vacation


ere are some interesting tidbits I collected this summer, although you can use them for all seasons to become an informed foodie, staying safe and healthy.

Fish and Tips When picking wild caught jumbo scallops from your fishmonger go for the blushing bivalves. Pass over the lily white ones for the crustaceans with the peachypink tinge. This hue is caused by an abundance of pigment called zeaxanthin from the ripening of the female gonads. Some pescavores claim these warm-tinted ones are more juicy, tender and tastier than their male counterparts. Wild-caught also trumps farm-raised for most fish varieties, although they both contain comparable amounts of hearthealthy omega-3 fatty acids. Farm-raised contain more fat and calories (along with antibiotics and commercial food colorings) as they are confined to cramped quarters, which makes them more susceptible to diseases with less opportunity to nosh on the ocean’s abundant buffet of wild (and color enhancing) offerings. Even the most die-hard oysterphiles should not slurp these bivalves raw (especially in summer months) as they feed through filters gobbling up wastes, toxins and viruses. (Not much of an aphrodisiac now!) Since more than 75 percent of E. coli and other outbreaks occur in warm water months, either cook oysters in the summer or wait to eat them raw in winter months.

n You’ll need: •1  pound organic skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut in cubes

Mosquito Management Studies have shown that eating a potent clove of antiviral and blood-thinning garlic daily might ward off more than just Vlad (the Impaler) Dracula. This stinky rose has been found to repel mosquitoes by its odiferous aroma on the breath and sulphuric compounds excreted through the skin. According to the Journal of the American Mosquito Control Association, those who guzzle beer, become a mosquito magnet, although there is no scientific explanation for the pest’s attraction to malted barley, hops and yeast. Iced tea, anyone? Salad Safety Particularly in the summer, it’s best to eat raw salads at home where you can vigilantly wash raw vegetables — a rich breeding ground for bacteria. Salads at questionable (or even reputable) establishments might be washed with unsanitary hands or contaminated water sources, so to avoid food borne illnesses choose cooked veggies when dining out. In fact, most foods (especially egg and oil-based ones) when left at room temperature for more than an hour can grow pathogenic bacteria that causes foodborne illness. So keep perishables on ice or refrigerate soon after opening. Migraine Mitigation While assorted triggers cause debilitating migraine monsters, summer is rife with them, including dehydration, bright sunrays, humidity and heat. Standing advice — drink

•1  pound wild caught salmon fillets (cubed), jumbo shrimp or scallops •1  large red onion, cut in wedges •1  large red pepper, cut in wedges •1  large sweet yellow or orange pepper, cut in wedges •8  ounces whole mushrooms (crimini or button) •8  bamboo sticks (soaked overnight)

n Directions: Combine marinade ingredients in a glass bowl, and whisk until well blended. Divide into three bowls. Marinate chicken, fish and veggies in separate bowls in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, assemble kebob ingredients, half for chicken, half for fish. Alternate chicken and veggies, and fish and veggies on skewers, ending with mushroom, cap down on top. Grill on medium heat, turning frequently until chicken and fish are cooked through, brushing liberally with extra marinade. Serve with turmeric seasoned couscous or basmati rice.

n For the marinade: • J uice and zest from 2 Meyer lemons •1  /2 cup extra virgin olive oil  garlic cloves, minced •2 •1  /3 cup fresh herbs, coarsely chopped (your choice: rosemary, tarragon, cilantro, Italian parsley, basil)  alt and pepper to taste •S plenty of hydrating fluids. There are also many natural sources of migraine relief, so make food your Motrin. Certain spices like turmeric and cayenne might offer some solace, as the former is an anti-inflammatory blockbuster, while the latter, in general, regulates circulation and blood pressure. Cayenne dials up marinara sauces, roasted vegetables, mangos and melons, hummus, dips and salsas, while turmeric enhances the color and flavor of everything from risottos, soups and stews to roast chicken, scrambles and Asian noodle dishes. Also, do a liver detox by making organic lemon your main squeeze, squirting it into

everything from teas and salad dressings to chilled soups and fruit salads. Get on the Stick When preparing shish kebobs (whether chicken, fish or beef), soak wooden sticks overnight to prevent burning on the grill. To impart foods with added oomph, prepare flavored waters, like tangerine tarragon infused water for chicken, smoky hickory for beef and Meyer lemon and thyme for fish. — For additional recipes, e-mail

Research Report LynnE Friedmann

Ebola virus assembly yields a big surprise


cientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have discovered the molecular mechanism by which the deadly Ebola virus assembles, and what they discovered comes as a surprise: The same molecule that assembles and releases new viruses also rearranges itself into different shapes, with each shape controlling a different step of the virus’s life cycle. The finding revises a central dogma of molecular biology: That a protein molecule has one shape that predestines one biological function. The newly discovered “shape-shifting” or “transformer” behavior of Ebola explains how the virus can control a multi-step viral lifecycle using a limited number of genes. More importantly, insight from the TSRI study means that new drugs to block viral replication could target any of the structures themselves or the intermediate steps in the structural transformation process. —Findings appear in the journal Cell.

News release

Tech-enabled TB treatmentmonitoring system Tuberculosis patients now have a lessintrusive treatment option that uses mobile-health technology to improve the likelihood that they will take all their critical medications. The new system, known as Video Directly Observed Therapy (VDOT), allows TB patients to video record themselves taking their daily medications on smartphones, which they then send to the health department as a means to remotely monitor and document each dose of medication. This is necessary because poor compliance with treatment protocols — a combination of pills taken daily for six months — leads to ongoing disease, acquisition of drug resistant forms of TB, and the risk of further transmission of TB to the community. Currently, health departments in the U.S. spend millions of dollars driving to

patients’ homes every day just to watch them take their pills. VDOT provides the same level of adherence monitoring at a fraction of the cost, and with much greater acceptability to patients than inperson observation. Creation of VDOT was a collaborative effort involving researchers at the UC San Diego School of Medicine, developers from Qualcomm Institute/ Calit2, and public health officials from San Diego and Tijuana. Industry partner Verizon provided grant funding and inkind technology — such as HIPAAenabled cloud services and smartphones — to support the expansion of this firstof-its-kind remote treatment-monitoring system. —More information at 17cOqDF

researchers at the UC San Diego School of Medicine. Both studies showed that the use of vedolizumab resulted in remission and discontinued use of prednisone, a common yet difficult-totolerate drug used to treat both diseases. Vedolizumab is targeted to disease within the digestive tract where it blocks immune system cells that release proteins (cytokines) that trigger inflammation, causing tissue damage and diarrhea to move into the small intestine and colon. The targeted nature of the medication helps reduce side effects such as weight gain, nausea and headaches caused by other treatment options such as steroids, immune suppressive drugs and anti-tumor necrosis factor (TNF) biologic drugs. The ulcerative colitis trial involved 895 patients in 34 countries. The Crohn’s disease clinical trial involved 1,115 patients in 39 countries. Eligible patients in both trials were treated for 52 weeks. Benefits could be seen six weeks into the study. —The findings, published in two papers, appear in the New England Journal of Medicine.

Lords and Ladies! Time for a manor-born musical at North Coast Rep

By Diana Saenger The nobleman isn’t noble, the lackey is no lackey, the lady is no lady, and the maid is no maiden in Ben Tarver’s “Man with a Load of Mischief” playing through September at North Coast Repertory Theatre. It’s all been set to music, too, with lyrics by Tarver and John Clifton and tunes by Clifton. When “Man with a Load of Mischief” debuted off-Broadway in 1966, it earned raves from critics and had four revivals. For its NCRT premiere, director Rick Simas said audiences will come to appreciate it as much as he does. “I began collecting original recordings of musicals at age 15,” Simas said. “Many people do not know this show, but I fell in love with it. It’s filled with song, humor and Rick Simas directs love.” The romantic ‘Man with a Load comedy is set in a of Mischief.’ roadside English country inn in the early 19th century, a staging challenge for an intimate space like NCRT’s house. “It’s very complicated because it must be a collaborative effort,” Simas said. Due to the various instruments and singers moving about, sound designer Nicholas Drashner and light designer Matt Novotny took center stage. “In tech rehearsal we had 40 to 50 light cues with an expectation of musical numbers having the correct angle of light on an actor, who must be in the same spot for every performance, and at the same time, the sound must move as the actor does,” Simas explained. “Everything on stage, and behind, must carry out the theme of the period. Show music director Steven Withers had to coordinate all of this along with the choreography. He’s a native of San Diego and worked for many local theaters as director and pianist. “We have (another) wonderful music

She is pursuing her MFA in musical theater at SDSU, and is on the dance faculty at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy (AMDA) and CAP21 in NYC, and teaches master classes throughout the country.” Simas said he is more than thrilled with his cast, which includes: Robert Yakko (The Man); Jacquelyn Ritz (The Lady); Ron Choularton (The Innkeeper); Annie Hinton (The Innkeeper’s Wife); Randall Dodge (The Lord) and Tatiana Mac (The Maid). “They are all very accomplished and fulfill their characters through their singing and acting talents,” Simas said. “The audience at NCRT enjoys these types of comedies and this musical is full of intrigue and romance. It’s also quaint and silly like ‘Dames at Sea’ and ‘Spelling Bee.’ ”

La Jolla is home, and like all homes, it needs maintenance and TLC. Mere tax dollars aren’t enough. Together, we can pool our resources to keep La Jolla the jewel that it is. The La Jolla Community Foundation (LJCF) was created to enrich the environmental, social and cultural experience of La Jolla. So far, we have funded the fire pits along the Shores, commissioned world-class murals around town, repaired the “Teardrop” entrance on La Jolla Parkway, created educational coastal signage, and are now developing a plan to maintain the Village on an ongoing basis. Membership is open to all La Jollans who care. Join the LJCF and have a voice in selecting annual grant recipients – making a difference here, at home, where you live. Please join us. Annual local projects will receive 75% of your contribution and the other remaining 25% will go into a permanent endowment. To make a contribution, please go to and click on GET INVOLVED.

Library hosts party for young summer readers

N Children and parents attend an event at Riford Library Aug. 21 to mark the end of Riford’s summer reading program for children and teens.

early 500 young readers completed Riford Library’s summer reading program, June 15-Aug. 15, titled “Reading Is So Delicious!” The library held a fun finale event for children Aug. 21, with face painting, snacks, a stilt walker, fortune teller and raffle prizes, including gift cards, T-shirts, Beanie Babies and a tablet book reader. During the program children received a free book each time they finished reading 10 books — or if reading longer books, every time the completed 10 hours of

reading. Summer readers registered online, logging their progress as they went along. Program volunteer and Friends of Riford Library board member Teri Newlee said her daughters participated in the program when they were young. “They loved to read,” she said. “It has helped them so much in college.” Youth Services Librarian Bill Mallory said the program is “a great way to encourage kids to keep their minds sharp and read during the summer break, so that they don’t sit in front of the TV and turn to mush.” — Pat Sherman
