Two options for school budgets: Cut or slash

With busy schedules, full-time jobs and just not having the time to look a place up to get organized, the two thought they could figure out a new way for people to come together to play pick-up games — basketball, lacrosse, flagfootball — without all the fuss. “So we put our heads together and thought, iPhones and location-based technology has really changed the world and you can essentially, with two clicks of your button, locate anybody within a mile radius who’s up for doing the same thing as you,” said Haroun, the co-founder and CEO of Sportaneous. “But there hadn’t yet been anything that applied that to sports.”

BY PHIL DAILEY Staff Writer o you want to know where a nearby game of pick-up basketball or soccer is being played? There’s an app for that. Thursday afternoon at the La Jolla Recreation Center, about 10 locals took part in an organized pick-up basketball game, all thanks to the help of a new iPhone app, Sportaneous. While working at a law firm in Palo Alto, Omar Haroun became a bit frustrated that the firm’s basketball team was never able to play a game, due in large part to schedule conflicts. Haroun’s long-time friend Aaron Royston was experiencing a similar issue at Wharton in Philadelphia where he’s pursuing an MBA and medical degree.

Vol.99 Issue 4 January 27,2011

BY TERRY RODGERS Contributor Government spending for public education in La Jolla and the rest of San Diego can only go in one direction: down. The only intrigue at this point is whether an upcoming series of school budget cuts will be merely significant or dramatically severe. That was the message delivered by San Diego Unified School District officials to a group of about 50 parents and educators attending a budget briefing session Thursday evening at Muirlands Middle School. Despite the grim budget forecast, parents said they were glad administrators were being frank and allowing them to see what Mike types of budget cuts they are Price contemplating. “The district has finally acknowledged the need for transparency, and the fact that school sites need to have flexibility to decide how to spend the money that is available,” said Sandy Erickson, president of the La Jolla High School Foundation. The purpose of the briefing to parents and supporters of the La Jolla Schools Cluster Association was to show the public a preliminary list of what types of programs and personnel cuts administrators are currently considering. “We have a long period ahead of us with a lot of tough decisions to make,” Area Superintendent Mike Price told the audience. “Realistically, it’s tearing us (administrators) all up inside.”

Kudos go to a bright spot along our coastline: Calumet Park, the popular pocket park in Bird Rock overlooking the Rock Pile surf spot. It’s a nice nod to what open space can do for the community, drawing people (and their pooches) out for a walk. It’s also known as a good spot for weddings. Don Schmidt, a La Jolla Historical Society member, said when the California Coastal Commission gave developer Robert L. Haniman a permit, “that was the last major piece of oceanfront there. He had to set aside area for public park space.” PHYLLIS PFEIFFER This weekly column gives kudos to the businesses, property owners and institutions that do their part to help make La Jolla beautiful.

Whitney project clears Planning Commission BY DAVE SCHWAB Staff Writer In reconsidering the mixed-use, three-story Whitney project in La Jolla Shores, city Planning Commissioners voted 5-0 on Jan. 20 to approve Coastal and Site Development permits for the project. They also declared that an environmental impact report is unnecessary because there would be no environmental consequences from the project that could not be compensated for. The project, proposing retail space on the ground floor with condos on second and third stories, had been opposed on a 14-1 vote by La Jolla Community Planning Association (LJCPA), the community’s advisory group to the city on land use. The proposal had been sent back to the Planning Commission by the City Council, which questioned the commission’s previous conclusion that a project EIR was not required. Reacting to the Planning Commission’s decision, Kim Whitney said Monday it was a vindication of their side’s position. “Our environmental document is sound as proven by city staff for the second time,” she said.

Town Council hires manager BY DAVE SCHWAB Staff Writer La Jolla Town Council has a new part-time office manager: Valerie Strocco. Strocco, 30, is a woman’s soccer coach and substitute teacher at La Jolla Country Day School who is returning to University of San Diego to get a master’s degree to fulfill her wish to become a teacher. She replaces Cindy Hoye, who resigned several months ago. “Membership billings is her first priority,” noted La Jolla Towncouncilman Rob Hildt. “Once she has the ball rolling there she will be working diligently on new membership, setting up relationships with other La Jolla organizations, like the Riford Center, to do joint fundraising activities and membership development.” Hildt noted Strocco will be working 20 hours a week, typically 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Rick Wildman, town council president, said Strocco will be paid from membership dues and do-

Valerie Strocco nations. Strocco was born and raised in San Diego and has lived in the WindanSea area for more than four years. She got a bachelor’s degree in 2003 from USD and is returning there to get her master’s degree in education. “What inspired me to do that is I started working at La Jolla Country Day School as a middle school girls soccer coach and I absolutely loved it,” she said, adding she’s now an assistant coach with the Upper School’s varsity girls soccer squad. “I got more involved as a substitute teacher there

and I thought, ‘I’m going to go back to school to get my master’s in education and hopefully one day be a fabulous teacher.'” Besides soccer coaching and substitute teaching, Strocco also works at La Jolla Learning Works, a tutoring center with a suite in the Crosby Center at 77307742 Herschel Ave. where the Town Council office is located. As of now, the Town Council has three openings on its 24-member La Jolla Town Council due to the recent resignations of Realtor J.R. Sullivan, John Frangos and Melissa Stephens, who moved out of the area, Wildman said. Hildt, who chairs the town council’s elections committee, said the group has received five nominations for the three open trustee seats and hopes to fill them at its next meeting Feb. 10. He said the group also will hold its annual membership election in April for an undetermined number of open seats.

UCSD in La Jolla Editor’s note: To mark UCSD’s 50th anniversary, the Light is asking people for their thoughts on how the university has affected La Jolla. Today, we hear from Peggy Chodorow, who has been involved in La Jolla real estate for more than 38 years, having moved here from New York in the late 1960s with her husband Stan, a professor emeritus at UCSD. She and their son Eric make up Team Chodorow, one of the area's top-selling teams of Realtors. We arrived in La Jolla in 1968 when my husband Stan began his career at UCSD. Our impression of the town was mixed. The weather was fabulous, especially compared to Ithaca, N.Y. The cultural life was less exciting compared to the East Coast. For a few years, we were determined to return to the East, but the university and the town grew and grew on us. UCSD was a small institution in the late 1960s; Salk Institute was also young; Scripps Clinic was in old quarters in downtown La Jolla. The main UCSD campus had 1,200 acres, covered mostly by eucalyptus and coastal desert. There were more rabbits and reptiles on the mesa than students and faculty. In the first 15 or so years of the university, the campus was pretty isolated, and the relationship between the school’s population and the

people of La Jolla was tenuous. There was little to do on campus and little for students in town. I started in real estate in 1972 and became increasingly embedded in our community. Through the 1970s Stan and I saw the university and community slowly draw together. The university and its sister institutions, Salk and the Scripps Research Foundation, spawned dozens of new companies that transformed the economy of our region and brought a diverse and energetic population to La Jolla. The university developed programs in the arts that attracted members of the community and then began to reach out with public lecture series, the Osher Institute for retired persons, the Revelle Forum, the Edison lectures and many other programs. Over the 42 years we have been in La Jolla, the town has changed. What was once a small, idyllic village along the Cove with a grocery store and one-screen theater on Girard Avenue is now a vibrant town, a destination for vacationers and a cultural center. We have grown up with La Jolla and the university and wonder why we ever wanted to return to the East Coast. If you have any thoughts on how UCSD has changed La Jolla, send them to editor@lajollalight.com.

YMCA families learn from IRC ‘adoption’ BY DAVE SCHWAB Staff Writer Bird Rock resident Ray Fulks really wanted to do something this past holiday season to drive home the value of giving to children he leads in the Seminoles, part of the La Jolla YMCA guides and princesses program. So The Seminoles group, which has about 20 local families involved in its “troop,” participated in a hands-on humanitarian project that not only benefited needy people, but allowed direct personal contact with them. “We wanted to further instill the value of giving to boys and girls in our circle, so we decided to do some giving activity, and a good friend of ours recommended sponsoring a family through the International Rescue Committee (IRC),” said Fulks. “I just wanted to put a face with the giving process. Instead of just donating money to something and not seeing the results, kids got to deliver the donations to the actual family.” The family the Seminoles sponsored had just come over from Ethiopia where they’d been staying in a refugee camp for 18 years. The family of about 15 members was living in a tiny, tidy one-bedroom apartment. Fulks said the family was asked through an intermediary what they needed. Their response: blankets and

a big pot. “So we collected money and raised enough to buy pots, pans, blankets and some food,” said Fulks, who added he and his Seminoles group delivered the goodies in person to the recipient family. Ray said the experience struck a resonant chord with his son, Jake. “Afterwards, Jake said, ‘Dad, I just feel good inside,’ ” said Ray. “He was blown away.” Ronit Austgen, Fulks’ friend who tipped him off about the IRC, said it's not uncommon in troubled areas of the world for people like the Ethiopian

family the Seminoles helped to get trapped in the limbo of a refugee camp. “Their first choice and the ideal situation is to go back to their home country,” said Austgen, adding that’s not always possible and often the only immediate choice is for families to remain for years in refugee camps. Jennifer Roach, who also has children in the Seminoles group, said the YMCA program is meant to facilitate father-son and father-daughter group interaction, camping trips and the like. “It’s basically getting them out doing things together,” she said.

strategy calls for giving local school principals and their advisory councils more autonomy and decision-making power over the spending of discretionary funds. Each school would decide based on local priorities which non-mandatory programs,

such as music education, and which non-teaching support personnel, should be retained or trimmed. “I support the fact that the district is giving the schools some say in how they spend those discretionary funds; previously it’s been a top-down

BY DAVE SCHWAB Staff Writer An unofficial decision to move three valet parking spaces to a spot near the Crabcatcher will get another look when La Jolla's Traffic & Transportation Board meets today at 4 p.m. at the La Jolla Recreation Center. On Jan. 19, the panel discussed the Village valet situation and voted to shift three valet spots in front of George’s California Modern restaurant at 1250 Prospect St. to 1298 Prospect St. But the vote was non-binding since they didn't have a quorum. About 20 turned out to hear the discussion, among them restaurateur George Hauer who asked the group to maintain the status quo. “If you extend the idea that every business should have its own valet zone, you’re effectively starting a shooting war with every major commercial street in San Diego,” he said, noting there are over 30 retail businesses and 10 restaurants on Prospect Street who pay $3 million in sales tax. "It’s not a good idea to change the interaction of traffic and parking spaces that’s been working for 27 years," Hauer said. Michael Harth, president of Sunset Parking Service, gave a brief overview of the history of valet parking on Prospect Street. “I’ve voiced public concern about the lack of joint and unified valet parking,” said board member Joe Dicks, who is also president of La Jolla Shores Association. “It is not feasible for every restaurant who desires valet parking to have it. We should have a fair and equitable way of reallocating (valet) spots.” "What the city came up with is to take three valet spots from in front of George’s and move them over on a trial basis,” said chairman Todd Lesser.

process,” said Linda Dowley, chair of the La Jolla High School governance team. Price said there currently are no plans to close any of the districts 185 schools, “but that may change as we go along.” Although the district has closed just one school in the past four years, campuses with small enrollments of 150 or less will be in jeopardy if the state further reduces its funding, he said. Newly elected school board trustee Scott Barnett also addressed the audience, explaining that, if a proposed ballot measure by Gov. Jerry Brown to extend previous tax increases fails, local schools will face far

more severe cuts. But even before the fate of the proposed ballot measure is known, Barnett said he and fellow school trustee Kevin Beiser plan to form “tiger teams” made up of business leaders and parents to examine ways to eliminate wasteful spending and promote efficiency. He said anyone with an interest in helping schools can participate. Barnett’s tiger team idea resonated with Lisa Bonebrake, La Jolla Cluster Association president. “It’s time for the board to reach into the community and maximize the expertise that is available to them,” he said said. “I think they need to realize we’re all in this together.”

Longboard event seeks volunteers Organizers of the Luau & Longboard Invitational, the annual fundraiser for the UCSD Moores Cancer Center, are looking for people who want to volunteer for the event. Returning and new volunteers are invited to join them from 6 to 8 p.m. on Feb. 1 at PB Surf Shop, 4150 Mission Blvd. The event, which will be held for the 18th time on Aug. 11 at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, brings together surfing legends, business leaders, scientists, local politicians and national celebrities for a surfing competition and a luau. Since it was started, the event has raised more than $5 million

for the Moores center since it was founded by La Jollans Sam Armstrong and John Otterson. Part of the fun is the Survivor Beach gathering, which precedes the Invitational. On that day, people come together to show their support for cancer research and to honor those fighting the disease. They form a “symbol of support” by creating a line of surfboards in the sand. This year’s co-chairs are Taylor Peterson, director of Innovation Programs for CONNECT, and Cory Reynolds, a business development manager at Manpower. Learn more at www.longboardluau.org.

Planners to reconsider Bishop’s library plan The city Planning Commission voted 3-2 on Jan. 20 in favor of a motion brought by commissioner Tim Golba, a La Jolla architect, to uphold an appeal opposing granting a variance to allow a proposed library and learning center at The Bishop’s School to exceed the 30-foot coastal height limitation by 2 feet and 1 inch. Four votes, however, are required for an affirmative commission vote, so the issue will be continued until the Commssion’s Feb. 10 meeting when it is hoped the full board will be present to rehear the contentious issue. “I feel this is a reasonable deviation for this facility in

this context of buildings in an urban setting, and I do not agree that it’s a Prop. D (30foot maximum coastal building height limit) violation,” said group chair Eric Naslund, who urged the applicants to do everything possible to trim the additional 2-feet-1-inch being requested above 30 feet down as much as possible before the Feb. 10 meeting. A private school, Bishop’s discovered that the Manchester Library & Learning Center project, part of its masterplanned, phased expansion, is located in a flood plain necessitating the building's being raised, which required a variance to exceed the 30foot height limitation. — Dave Schwab

Vaccine could create immunity against cocaine’s high Long-lasting, anti-cocaine immunity has been achieved Lynne in mice by givFriedmann ing them a vaccine that combines bits of the common cold virus with a particle that mimics cocaine. The vaccine does not interfere with the neurological targets of the drug, but instead blocks cocaine from ever reaching the brain in the first place. In the study, the vaccine effect on mice

lasted for at least 13 weeks. If ultimately shown effective in humans, the strategy might offer cocaine addicts a way to break and reverse their habit as well as be useful in treating other addictions, such as to nicotine, heroin, and methamphetamine. Results of the study, by researchers from The Scripps Research Institute, Weill Cornell Medical College, and Cornell University, appear in the journal Molecular Therapy.

that the energy generated is larger during the peak demand hours (3 to 5 p.m.), and, thus, more valuable to consumers as they can reduce consumption of power from the energy grid. In conjunction with this research, UCSD research engineers have improved the solar map for the state of California, which allows homeowners, photovoltaic installers, and utilities to better predict how much energy they will get out of their solar systems. The map can be viewed via Google Earth for free. More information on the research and the California Solar Irradiance Map at http://solar.ucsd.edu.

Woman sentenced to jail time in baby-scratching case CITY NEWS SERVICE A former La Jolla real estate agent who scratched eight babies after befriending their mothers was sentenced Tuesday to a two-year county jail term, but the judge said she could serve her custody in a work furlough program if she has a qualifying job. San Diego Superior Court Judge Michael Smyth ordered Lisa Hench —a 45- year-old mother of three — to report for custody on March 18. If Hench qualifies for the work furlough program, in which she

would go to her workplace during the day but return to a locked facility at night, she could continue her mental health treatment, which would not be possible in county jail, the judge said. A plea agreement reached last month contemplated no additional custody for Hench, but Smyth said he was concerned that other children might be sought out and injured should the defendant be free. “It (the behavior) does seem to me to be predatory in nature,” the judge said.

Smyth said there was no discernable reason why Hench injured the eight children, saying the behavior came “out of the blue.” While Hench is being treated for anxiety and depression, her actions made “no sense whatsoever,” the judge said, calling the crimes “inexplicable and despicable conduct.” Hench pleaded guilty last month to eight misdemeanor counts of corporal injury on a child. Her victims were injured — none significantly — at different locations over a fourmonth period in the fall of 2009,

prosecutors said. They ranged in age from 3 months to 19 months. Lainie Carswell, whose 7-monthold daughter was scratched and pinched by Hench, said the defendant was a “predator on the most innocent, helpless babies.” Carswell said she wanted Hench to go to jail but also wanted the defendant to get help. Defense attorney Steven Feldman unsuccessfully argued that Hench did not deserve more custody. “She's been punished,” the defense attorney said. “What more do

we need to do? She's had her career virtually destroyed. She's been flayed publicly.” A tearful Hench apologized. “I'm truly, truly sorry,” Hench said. “I'm truly sorry that this happened. I wouldn't want someone to do that to my own children. I can't imagine being in your shoes, and I was the cause of it.” Hench is expected to serve a year of her two-year sentence, with credit for good behavior, said Deputy District Attorney Patrick Ojeil.

BY DAVE SCHWAB Staff Writer Two cars and a motorcycle valued in excess of $50,000 were destroyed in a fire that burned down a garage at 7750 Sierra Mar Drive in La Jolla 9:30 a.m. on Jan. 21 “I was warming up my motorcycle and I went into the house to get the phone and I heard somebody scream and I saw the motorcycle on fire,” said Gus Schuetz, the home’s occupant. “I went to get the hose and the whole garage was on fire. It burned like a Christmas tree.” Schuetz said he lost his 1936 hot rod which had just been restored, as well as his car, a 1999 Lincoln Town Car that he just had new tires put on. “All my stuff was in there (garage),” he added. “Nobody got hurt. That’s the

main thing.” “This is a very tight street at the base of Mount Soledad,” said San Diego Fire Department Battalion Chief David Pilkerton who was at the scene. “What you have here is a 400- to 500-footlong driveway and the fire hydrant, the closest water supply, was about 600 feet away. These tight streets and narrow driveways makes it difficult for firefighters to make access.” Pilkerton added there was a quick response to the blaze which was rapidly extinguished. He said fire investigators were on their way to inspect the scene. “It was a total loss to a garage, two vehicles and a motorcycle, plus all the contents of the garage and personal belongings, probably over $50,000,” he said.

Lisa Wilson hired as Children’s Pool ranger

FROM APP, A1 Both Haroun (Columbia) and Royston (Penn) are currently on a leave of absence from their graduate programs to focus on their new idea. They attracted two other La Jollans to help with the project in Nick Shiftan, a La Jolla Country Day and Harvard graduate, and Brady Dinnsen, who is a La Jolla High and University of Arizona graduate. Shifton is the lead technical adviser while Dinnsen is the head of marketing operations. “We thought a tool like this would be fantastic for people in our shoes, as well as people new to a city that might not know a lot of people and want to play sports rather than run on a treadmill,” said Royston, who along with being a co-founder is also the president of Sportaneous. And what they found through their own research was that they were right. “Our market research in pretty compelling in that area that 69percent of people who are between 18 and 65 workout weekly and 75 percent of them would prefer to play a team sport rather than workout at the gym,” Royston said. “But the fact of the matter is, of that, 12percent of the people have

The players who turned out for the ‘debut’ game included Omar Haroun, third from right; Aaron Royston, second from right, and Brady Dinnsen, far right. PHIL DAILEY played a team sport in the last month.” He is the son of Colette Carson Royston and Dr. Ivor Royston. With the app, which can also be accessed online at www.sportaneous.com and used on other smart phones as well as the Internet, it’s much easier to find a place to play a sport. For now, their app mostly contains data for pick-up games and where to play in San Diego County and New York City, but

as it gains steams, more cities will be added. Dinnsen has spearheaded the efforts locally. “I’ve been spreading the word while these guys have been at school back East,” he said as he prepared for a game of 5-on-5. As for the app, which is free to download, it was officially launched Wednesday and users can log on via their Facebook account or simply register as a new user. During the next few months,

the pair will be tracking their downloads and see where it takes them. “First and foremost, our motivation why we did this is so we can solve this problem,” Haroun said. “So if we do that and never make money off it, we’ll be really excited. “Our real mission is get people active, to get people who play sports to play more sports. People who don’t play sports, to start playing sports again.”

Lisa Wilson, currently a park ranger at Mission Bay Park, has been hired by the city of San Diego to be the first permanent park ranger at Children’s Pool in La Jolla. “Wilson has accepted the position and will begin her new assignment Jan. 31,” said Stacey LoMedico, city Park and Recreation director in a memo sent out Monday. “Wilson has over seven years experience as a park ranger for agencies including the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the National Park Service, the County of San Diego and most recently three years with the City of San Diego.” She’ll replace interim ranger Randy Hawley. LoMedico’s memo noted a resolution adopted by the City Council on May 17, 2010, included the “seeking of private funding for a park ranger or lifeguard with the primary duty of patrolling Children’s Pool and authorizing the Park and Recreation Department to create a volunteer docent program led by the park ranger or lifeguard.” The memo added that funding for personnel costs associated with the new ranger position at Children’s Pool was secured via a private donation solicited by Councilmember Sherri Lightner representing District 1, which includes La Jolla. — Dave Schwab

FROM CORRIDOR, A1 pedestrians and bicyclists, and stabilizing slopes, they said. Broad strokes on preliminary designs for the improvements, aided by $500,000 in design funding from a federal stimulus grant, were painted by engineers in a Powerpoint presentation that included images and cost breakdowns for the four sections that start at La Jolla Shores Drive and end at Prospect Place. Specific design alternatives and timing for the project are being deferred until the La Jolla Traffic and Transportation Board can hear from the community. T&T Chairman Todd Lesser said the board would hold its first dicussions at the Feb. 24 meeting when people will have a chance to make suggestions. Anticipating that a lot will be said, he added that the board will continue to listen until everyone has had their say, meeting again in March if necessary. Once the transportation board meets, they will pass their recommendations to trustees of the La Jolla Community Planning Association, the community’s advisory group on land-use, who will weigh in before it

goes to the city council. Lesser said he felt the forum was a “great first start” for the corridor project, but noted many people didn’t understand that the project is just a “conceptual idea” at this point. “People were asking very specific questions, like the width of sidewalks in each section, and that hasn’t been determined yet,” he said. “After the February meeting when the community actually gives input, we’ll get to more specific design requirements.” The Torrey Pines Corridor Study, previously approved by the City Council, recommends 20 improvements including: • street cross sections and new guardrails, bollards and sidewalks, • a 10-foot-wide, two-way left-turn median in the center of Torrey Pines west of Viking Way, • a continuous marked bike lane, • new V calm (blinking light) speed indicators and transverse striping pavement markers installed in both directions to discourage speeding, • new lighting and landscaped areas, including park-

way trees and fencing • bluff stabilization, • creation of a view corridor by changing fencing along the street, and • addition of signage and stormwater drainage. City engineer Julio Fuentes said the city decided it would be best to break the long stretch of Torrey Pines Corridor between the Village and La Jolla Shores Drive down into four cost-equalizing segments: Prospect Place to Coast Walk, $7.4 million; Coast Walk to Hillside Drive, $6.5 million; Hillside Drive to Little Street, $6.8 million; and Little Street to La Jolla Shores Drive, $5.8 million.” “Segment 4 (Little Street to La Jolla Shores Drive), the entrance to the Village and the longest segment, has the least cost because it has very few (retaining) walls, so we thought constructing that segment would give us the most bang for the buck,” said Fuentes, adding a project to strengthen a wall in that segment is already under way. He also said there was less need to acquire easements that might slow progress. “Five years ago it was decided this was the most critical section in the road,” agreed

city engineer Jamal Batta. “The city has already allocated money to the design and building of a retaining wall.” During the question period, Andy Hamilton, president of Walk San Diego, a nonprofit advocating pedestrian safety and accessibility, said the city thus far hasn’t adequately addressed pedestrian safety in its preliminary planning. “You’re really not looking at the complete picture, widening sidewalks so people can pass two other people side by side, and whether you accomplish bike lanes and other accessibility goals,” he said. LJCPA president Joe LaCava said the city staff’s evaluation thus far hasn’t been far reaching enough. “You’re not offering any traffic calming — you’re offering sidewalks,” he said. “Without some kind of physical barrier between 45 mph traffic and pedestrians, nobody is going to feel safe out there.” Sherry Nooravi, a Torrey Pines Corridor resident who’s lead a grass-roots drive to have the thoroughfare updated, said she spoke for a lot of people in saying the public wants the city to provide them with options for traffic calming and pedestrian safety and accessibility. “What’s the cheapest and best way to provide pedestrian access?” Nooravi asked. “Nothing’s cheap,” answered Fuentes. “The topography is difficult, the narrowness of the road is difficult.” City engineers said construction of the first phase between Little Street and La Jolla Shores Drive, following environmental studies, could begin as soon as 2012. They added subsequent phases could be planned and ready for construction just as soon as the previous segment is completed.

Pot dispensary rules head to council docket CITY NEWS SERVICE The Planning Commission voted 3-2 Thursday to send a package of land-use regulations of marijuana dispensaries in San Diego to the City Council for final approval. Dispensaries would be limited to industrial zones and operators would have to apply for a conditional use permit. Authorities do not want pot shops within 1,000 feet of schools, playgrounds, libraries, child care facilities, youth facilities, churches, parks or other dispensaries. Dispensary operators would also have to prove their nonprofit status and conform to restrictions on signage, security, lighting and hours of operation. One study of the regulations estimated that collectives would be allowed to operate in 97 locations throughout the city. “Ninety-seven still seems overly restrictive to me,” said commission Chairman Eric Naslund, who cast one of the dissenting votes. Naslund said the result would be “an outright ban” since a site might not actually be available for a dispensary to use — it could already be leased by another business or the owner might not agree to rent their space. “It’s incumbent on us to provide fair and humane treatment, where possible for medical marijuana patients, based on state law,” Naslund said. There are an estimated 180 medical marijuana shops operating in San Diego — illegally, accord-

ing to the city. Many operators of marijuana dispensaries have been cited for code violations by the City Attorney’s Office. About two hours worth of public speakers on the topic split roughly down the middle on whether the regulations are too restrictive or don’t go far enough. Caroline Short, of La Jolla, said the proliferation of the dispensaries and the people loitering near them have made San Diego a different kind of place. “We all know they’re used mainly by recreational users,” Short said. “It’s changed the fabric of our city.” Tony Silvia said opposition to the collectives is “NIMBYism.” If crime was such a problem around marijuana shops, then the police would be speaking out at the meeting, and they weren’t, Silvia said. Public safety issues surrounding the outlets are being handled separately. With their vote, the commissioners amended the recommendation by planning staff by adding colleges and universities to the 1,000-foot exclusion distance; allowing the City Council to reduce the buffer to residential neighborhoods to 600 feet; and giving the collectives a sixmonth grace period to meet the new regulations. Naslund asked staff to conduct a more detailed study of the number of locations that would be available to collectives before the regulations go to the City Council for final approval.

Damaged home in Colony Hill remains uninhabitable

A tarped area where a mudslide occurred recently behind the damaged home. DAVE SCHWAB

BY DAVE SCHWAB Staff Writer The status of a yellowtagged home in Colony Hill declared unfit for occupation Dec. 22 following an area mudslide remains unchanged. “The home did suffer some structural damage as the result of heavy rain at the end of December and it was our civic duty to respond to an emergency and consider the safety of the occupant,” said Mehdi

Shadyab, city senior structural engineer. “As a result, we yellow-tagged the building, which means the building is not to be occupied until we (city) receive a report from an engineering consultant hired by the property owner explaining the situation, the extent of the damage, its progression and how it will impact the structure.” Shadyab noted the ground near the home on

Caminito Avola remains damp in the middle of the rainy season. “Further rain or other phenomenon could possibly enhance the damages,” he said. “We are waiting to get a report from the property owner’s consultant. When we receive that, we will review it and carefully make a decision as to whether it’s safe for the occupant to return.” The engineer said the homeowner’s consultant’s geological report will allow the city to downgrade the yellow-tagged structure to a green tag allowing rehabitation, or upgrade it to a red tag meaning the structural damage is so significant the

collapse of the building is imminent, and no entrance should be allowed. The mudslide a block removed from the Mount Soledad residence caused the city to evacuate the home’s occupant, 94-year-old Virginia Wall. The home’s owner, Richard Wall, who lives in Beverly Hills, has since relocated his mother. Any compensation to the homeowner for damage done to the home’s structure “is a private matter with the homeowner and their insurance company,” said Shadyab. “The primary concern for us is the safety of the occupant.” Richard Wall could not be reached for comment.

Second former student files lawsuit against LJ Country Day School BY JOE TASH Contributor A former student of La Jolla Country Day School has filed a lawsuit against the prestigious private academy alleging she was bullied relentlessly by fellow students and that school officials failed to stop the abuse despite repeated complaints. Gizelle Studevent, whose lawsuit was filed Dec. 10 in San Diego Superior Court, is the second former student to file a lawsuit alleging bullying at the school in the past two years. Barbara Bagby also alleged she was bullied at the school in a lawsuit filed in April 2009. Both young women are represented by San Diego attorney Patricia Lewis. Studevent now attends college out of state and could not be reached. Chris Lavin, director of communications at La Jolla Country Day, said, “We deny vehemently that Ms. Bagby was ever bullied. And whatever problems Ms. Studevent had during her two years at the school were fully, immediately and aggressively addressed.” According to the most recent lawsuit, Studevent, who is now 20, attended La Jolla Country Day from 2004 through 2007, when she transferred to Bishop’s

school to escape the alleged harassment. At La Jolla Country Day, said the lawsuit, Studevent “was subjected to severe, pervasive and offensive sex and ethnicity harassment, bullying and retaliation by her peers…” The lawsuit alleges that Roderick Jemison, upper school director, and other school officials were informed of the bullying, but that the complaints “fell on deaf ears. No one at Country Day tried to stop the bullying.” When contacted, Lewis declined to comment on the lawsuits. The school, said Lavin, has an “aggressive program of character development. I can assure you that what these two families allege is not what life is like for the students who attend this institution. And the court proceedings will show that.” “We see it as two families working in unison with the same attorney for the same monetary gains,” Lavin said. Studevent’s lawsuit alleges intentional infliction of emotional distress, breach of contract and violation of Studevent’s civil rights, and seeks unspecified damages. La Jolla Country Day School has a student

SPOTLIGHT on LOCAL BUSINESS Roche-Bobois:A touch of style Roche-Bobois, a 50-year-old French company in La Jolla’s downtown Village, offers furnishings beyond compare. “We have more than 230 stores worldwide and we have gained our success in this industry by creating a beautiful collection of sofas,” said general manager Philippe Maret of his company’s two side-by-side, high-end stores at 7611 Girard Ave. While its sofas are a key product, Roche Bobois also features the work of designers who create chairs, tables, modular furniture, desks and bedroom furnishings. One store, Les Contemporains, is more contemporary. The other, Les Provinciales, featuring French countryside style, is more traditional, noted Maret. “Everything in the stores is handmade, most of it coming from Italy, made with the best materials and craftsmanship,” Maret said. Furniture orders placed locally are sent to Europe to be made before being shipped back approximately four months later for delivery. The store, which sells to interior designers as well as the general public, has partnered with famous designers Enzo Mari and JeanPaul Gaultier to market its products. “That resonates among people who know fashion, design,” he said. “It’s a good name

dropping.” Maret said the store draws people who “want to differentiate themselves” with something unique in design and exceptional in quality. The store also is noted for its customer service. The La Jolla fine furnishings showroom is open to the public. Roche Bobois incorporated in 2010, which allows it to receive more furniture styles and offer better prices, said Maret. They also offer a 10-year warranty. Store hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily except for Sunday. For information call RocheBobois at (858) 459-0297 or visit www.roche-bobois.com.

WHITNEY, FROM A3 Whitney said she and husband Bob are frustrated by the arduous approval process for their project. “I think this is a way to increase the financial burden on the applicants,” she said, adding she feels their project has been widely misrepresented. Joe LaCava, president of LJCPA agreed the city’s approval process “is kind of confusing,” noting it allows projects like the Whitney’s

“to bounce back and forth” between governmental bodies. “Commissioners weren’t exactly sure what they were supposed to be doing,” he said of the Commission’s Jan. 20 decision. Speaking against the project on Jan. 20, attorney Julie Hamilton argued commissioners were not being asked to weigh conflicting expert testimony on whether more environmental studies for the mixed-use

“A dissenting opinion being brought by an expert or a group automatically triggering the threshold for an EIR, that has not been my history,” said planning commissioner Tim Golba, a La Jolla resident and architect on Jan. 20.

La Jolla man dies after darting in front of traffic A 28-year-old man struck and killed by several vehicles after running onto Interstate 15 in the Miramar area last weekend was a senior mammal keeper at the San Diego Zoo, authorities reported today. Adam Ruble of La Jolla was driving on the northbound side of the freeway about 10:30 p.m. Sunday when he pulled over in a center divider just south of Miramar Way, got out and “darted” in front of an oncoming SUV, according to

the county Medical Examiner's Office. That vehicle struck Ruble, as did several others moments later. He died at the scene. It was unclear why Ruble stopped alongside the freeway and entered the traffic lanes on foot, according to the California Highway Patrol. His death was ruled an accident. Ruble had worked at the San Diego Zoo since 2005, a spokeswoman for the Balboa Park tourist attraction said.

Steven Swilley-Francoeur, who has worked at several La Jolla real estate firms, was arraigned Monday on three felony charges including identity theft, grand theft of personal property and burglary, said District Attorney spokesman Steve Walker. No details on the charges were available, he said. Swilley-Francoeur remains free on $25,000 bail. He was ar-

rested and booked into county jail in mid-January. A readiness conference is set for March 3 and a preliminary hearing for March 28. The maximum sentence he faces if convicted on all charges is eight years. John Cross is the deputy district attorney handling the case. No defense attorney was named on court documents, Walker said.

Show the business group’s candidates you care:Vote than 1,200 businesses that fall within the boundaries of the Village business improvement district, it’s a step in the right direction. The list includes a lot of new names and a couple that are part of the fabric of our community. Now it’s up to the other business people, from retailers and restaurant owners to professionals to service providers to show you care. There’s money to be had for

OUR VIEW It looks like the La Jolla Village Merchants Association is stirring up at least a little enthusiasm. As of press time Tuesday, which was before the final deadline for nominations, more than 20 people had thrown their hats (or their employees’) in the ring to fill 15 board seats in the new organization. While that is still but a small sampling of the more

bettering the Village — for beautification, special events or whatever the group decides to spend the money on. If you’re in business in the Village, chances are part of that money is yours, so wouldn’t you like to influence how it’s spent? So far the new group that a marketing consultant has labeled “a business betterment corporation” has seen limited turnout at its meetings — about 2 percent of those eli-

gible were at a meeting a couple of weeks ago — and only 53 people answered the community survey. It’s kind of sad, but somewhat understandable in light of the squabbling that went on with the denouement of Promote La Jolla. We know that there’s a segment of the community that would rather see the business district go away. That’s a solution, but not very practical given the state laws govern-

UCSD a campus filled with innovation COMMUNITY LEADER’S VIEW BY MARYE ANNE FOX Chancellor UCSD UC San Diego is unique for many reasons — our quick 50year rise from a fledgling campus to a leading global research university, our location near the ocean and Pacific Rim, and the people who work and study here, our stellar students, faculty and staff. Something else that sets UC San Diego apart from other universities: our foundation of innovation. Over the last five decades, UC San Diego faculty, students and alumni have been pioneers of discovery. They’ve brought the world’s attention to global warming and started up more than 200 companies, including many local companies that helped to create the biotech and high-tech cluster

on the Torrey Pines Mesa. This year, as the campus celebrates 50 years of “Achieving the Extraordinary,” MARYE we want to ANNE FOX share the history and legacy of our pursuit of knowledge. That is why, as part of our anniversary commemoration, we are hosting an “Innovation Day Expo and Symposia” (IDEaS) from Feb. 22 to 25. Students, faculty, staff and community members are invited to the free hands-on, informative display of creativity and breakthroughs that originated at UC San Diego to benefit the community and world. The university’s top innovators will demonstrate their original inventions — from robotic programming to

Don’t forget safety My concern with any project going forward, is that pedestrians are not given a false sense of security on Torrey Pines Road. The reality is that thousands of cars transit the road daily — this has been its main function for decades. The project addresses multiple areas where retaining walls and guard rails are overdue — the resulting improvement will vastly improve public safety and also the appearance of a major entrance to the village. Kudos to the volunteers who worked so hard to hash all that out — it will result in a great source of community pride when complete. Darcy Ashley LA JOLLA

ing how such districts are dissolved. So the real solution at this point is to get involved. Vote for the 15 people you think can lead the Village to better days. If all you want is for the money to be spent on beautification, get out there and vote. Then go to meetings, or at least let your board members know! Ballots will be mailed Feb. 7 and have to be returned by 5 p.m. on Feb. 16.

Local input key to reforming the city COMMUNITY VIEW BY CARL DEMAIO Fifth District City Councilman Do you think we need major change in how our city government spends taxpayer money? Do you think the city can deliver services to your neighborhood in a more efficient and effective way? If you do, I’d like you to join me for a public Town Hall from 6 to 8 p.m. on Feb. 2 at the La Jolla Riford Library, 7555 Draper Ave. The Town Hall is designed to let you comment, ask questions and share your own ideas for how we can make meaningful improvements in city government. In November, I released a financial plan for the city, “The Roadmap to Recovery plan,” that balances the Fiscal Year 12 budget without tax and fee increases. More importantly, the plan prevents cuts to core city services such as police, fire, libraries and parks. Some have proposed bankruptcy as the fix to the city’s financial problems. I strongly disagree, but have incorporated some elements from a traditional bankruptcy proceeding into the Roadmap to Recovery — without

the stigma, expense, and uncertainty of a bankruptcy filing. The Roadmap focuses on reducing the city’s liabilities and bringing the city’s annual operating costs back down to sustainable levels. Its centerpiece is a series of integrated reforms to the city’s pension system. Over five years, these and other reforms to pension and retirement benefits produce approximately $700 million in savings. But we must do more than prevent a fiscal meltdown — we must work to restore and improve vital services that are so important to our quality of life in each neighborhood. That’s why the Roadmap Plan calls for a heavy dose of rethinking and re-engineering how city services are provided. It is my hope that the Roadmap to Recovery can serve as a starting point for that discussion on fixing our city, but I hope to keep receiving additional ideas from the public. That’s why these Town Hall forums are so important — and I hope you will attend and share your views on how we can create a city government we can be proud of again.

Young Shores surfer learns the hard way Here is the second installment of the story of local La Jolla surf legend Bill “Pink Bod� Andrews. Corky In his own words: Carroll “1958, my first board. Like all the other gremmies at The Shores, it was finally time for me to get my own surfboard — I was getting way too cool to continue to borrow boards from anyone who had one to loan. “In general, our Shores crew was relatively accomplished as mat riders and body surfers, but the next level up was to become a real surfer and to be so one had to own his own board. “My parents agreed that they would invest a maximum of $50 into my latest passion. I think they were happy that I was no longer shooting my Red Ryder BB Gun at anything that moved around our house (except for humans and our dog). “My friend Richard Gooch had a 9’6� balsa board, of unknown origin, and it fit into the budget — however — I wanted a “Brand Name� board, preferably a Nelson, Burland or, even better, a Pat Curren. “Steve “Maw� Haney was the alpha male surfer at the Shores, a few years older than we were, and Steve spent most of his time at WindanSea. Maw was also a customer of the San Diego Union newspaper, which I delivered every morning to 213 recipients at the Shores. I got the nerve to ask Maw if he knew of any surfboards for sale in the $50 range. “Maw just happened to have a board for sale, $50 shaped by, praise the lord, Alan Nelson. This board included a list, penciled into the wood, of all those who participated in the manufacturing, everyone from the gluer of the balsa planks to the tool who had to fetch the beer — way cool, BUT — the bottom of the board had

a unique look — laminated under the glass — topless pinup girls. “I was stoked, but even I had enough common sense to know that my mom would never agree to the purchase — denied. “A couple of days later, Maw surprised me as I was delivering papers; he had another board — a Pat Curren. This board too fit into the budget, and he would even let me try it for a couple of days, no charge — stoked! “Naturally, all was not as it appeared to be. “In huge letters, across the entire 10-foot length of the board, were these four words: STOLEN FROM PAT CURREN! “I was a bit nervous about this purchase, but Maw assured me that everyone in La Jolla knew that Curren was selling the board, no possible retribution. “I came back to Maw’s house after school, and Steve handed me the board — STOKED! “I started the three-block trek, lugging the 50+ pound surfboard to my house — STOKED, NO PAIN! “Halfway home — still stoked — until a car, which looked uncannily like one owned by a WindanSea guy, name unknown, stopped next to me. “WindanSea guys I had seen in school jumped out, grabbed the board, and laughed as they drove away — ‘You’re a Shores guy, you are not worthy of a Pat Curren.’ “As they left, Haney drove up and said that this ‘sale’ was just a giant RF to a gremmie. “This was a board that was never gonna leave WindanSea, but he and Curren thought it would be a great way to initiate a Shores gremmie into La Jolla’s surf culture — Not Stoked! — Corky is a five-time U.S. and three-time international surfing champion. contact him at corkysurf@aol.com

Frank Thomas Franco Jr. June 20, 1931 – Jan. 20, 2011 Frank Thomas Franco Jr., age 79, of La Jolla, California, entered into eternal peace with his Lord on January 20, 2011. After a hard-fought 20 year battle with heart disease, Frank died as he wished, peacefully in his home surrounded by his wife, children and their families. Frank was born in Connecticut to Frank Thomas Franco and Rose Carriero Franco. He was raised in New Canaan together with his twin sister and younger brother. When the Korean War broke out, Frank joined the Navy and served honorably aboard a ship for four years. Frank dearly loved his country but referred to this period as the most challenging of his life, as he became seasick the day he ďŹ rst boarded the ship and remained sick until the day he disembarked. After his discharge Frank vowed to never again set foot on a ship and was true to his word for the rest of his days. Upon his return to dry land, Frank attended the University of Connecticut and became a member of the Sigma Chi fraternity. He graduated with a BS in marketing and a lifelong devotion to the UConn basketball team. He married and had 3 children while working in advertising and public relations. Eventually he joined IBM, where he spent 20 years working as a communications specialist ďŹ rst in New York and later in Boca Raton, Florida. There he was involved in many interesting and dynamic projects, the most exciting of which was the marketing of the newly developed personal computer. Frank met Mary Patricia Hart (Pat). Both divorced, they began a cross-country relationship that culminated in their marriage in 1986 and Frank moved to La Jolla soon afterward. Frank quickly came to love La Jolla. He and Pat adopted a little white poodle, Rigatoni, who immediately captured both their hearts. Frank carried Rigatoni everywhere he went, including to church. A devout Christian, Frank became an active member of St. James by the Sea Episcopal Church where he and

Pat were involved in ministry together. Frank served as a Stephen’s Minister, and together he and Rigatoni visited the sick and the lonely of the parish. In addition, Frank served on the boards of the St. James Memorial, the Salvation Army of San Diego and the San Diego Visiting Nurses Association. He was also involved in the Cursillo movement. Frank was very proud of his Italian heritage and loved all things Italian. He and Pat traveled to Italy numerous times, and callers to their home would often be greeted with hearty, “Buon Giorno!â€? Frank was blessed by a loving family, a strong marriage, a wonderful companion (Rigatoni), a deep faith, love for the church, and many friends. One of his great desires was to live in a way that would please the Lord, and one of his great joys was when he could bring another person into the midst of the church which was so central in his life. Frank was a larger-thanlife personality whose sense of humor, optimism and passion will be greatly missed by many. Frank is survived by his cherished wife, Pat; children, Tom (Casey) Franco, Alice (Chris) McCann, and Jim Franco; his stepchildren, Judy Hart Perrault and Lynn Hart (Fred) Muto; and grandchildren, Giuliana and Gabriella Franco, Jake and Kristen McCann, and Daniel, Chris and Lauren Muto. He is also survived by his very dear niece, Kim (Paul) Larsen, and their children, Erik and Elsa. A Eucharist service will be held in Frank’s memory on January 29, 2011, at St. James by the Sea Episcopal Church in La Jolla at 2:00 p.m. Following the service, his ashes will be interned on the Church lawn together with those of his beloved Rigatoni.

Country Day sweeps by Bishop’s BY PHIL DAILEY Staff Writer La Jolla Country Day made it a clean sweep on Jan. 21 as both the boys and girls basketball teams won their respective games. For the Torrey boys, they put on an impressive second-half performance, outscoring the Knights 32-10 during the final 13 minutes of the game to secure a 67-45 win. The motivation for the spirited effort was simple for the Torreys (11-6 overall, 2-1 Coastal League). “We wanted to get back at Bishop’s; they have been embarrassing us the past few years,” junior Frank Bamford said. “We really wanted to get them back this year and we showed it (Friday night)." And nobody was more red-hot than Bamford, a 6-foot-5-inch post player who torched the Knights (7-11, 0-3) for 27 points, including three 3-pointers in the final quarter. “He’s a special kid. When he plays well, we are a very, very good basketball team,” Torrey head coach Ryan Meier said. “I always tell him— I hate to put pressure on the kid — but it’s a matter of well, Frankie, if you play well, we’re good. If you don’t we suffer a little bit.” On Friday night they were more than good with the effort Bamford gave. His teammates Sage Burmeister and Max Hersfield were also key, both netting 12 points in the win. “I hate to say it, they pushed us around,” Bishop’s head coach Matt Niehues said. “What we had done to them in the last couple years, they did to us tonight.” At the break, the game looked anything like the final score as the teams were tied at 29 after the first 16 minutes of play. Bishop’s nearly took a three-point lead at the break, but LJCD senior Ryan Watt hit a 3 with 37 seconds to play in the first half to even up the score. The second half was a much differ-

La Jolla Country Day junior Frank Bamford (No. 42) scored 27 points in the win last Friday night against Bishop’s. PHIL DAILEY ent story as the Torreys went on a 12-3 run to end the third quarter. “We told them to keep shooting the ball,” Meier said. “We had good looks in the first half, they just weren’t falling. Our guys came out with a ton of energy and we just knew it was a matter of hitting shots. We knew we could defend, it was just whether or not we could hit shots.” Fittingly, Bamford made the final five points of the game, including a 3pointer with less than 40 seconds to play. “We wanted it more, we just came out and showed it,” he said. Dominique Love led the Knights with 12 points while Micha Seau added nine points in the loss.

Torrey girls squeeze out win It wasn’t their most impressive win of the season, but a win against a rival is never easy. Despite a 15-point advantage at the half, the La Jolla Country Day girls allowed Bishop’s to get back into the game in the second half as the Knights closed the gap to only

six points early in the third quarter. The Torreys, however, started making shots and cruised to a 68-56 win. “I don’t think our decision-making was very good and we had easy baskets that we were missing and we didn’t rebound,” LJCD head coach Terri Bamford said of the team’s lull to start the second half. With the game in the Torreys’ favor 50-44, La Jolla Country Day pounded the rim, outscoring the Knights 16-6 during the next 8 minutes of action. “They are a very good team and I think controlling the tempo is the key. When you're good you got to push it, but when things aren’t going for you, you got to slow down and run your sets. I think when we did that we got some easy baskets and we took control of that game again,” Bamford added. The Torreys (16-3 overall, 2-0 Coastal South) were led by Kelsey Plum and Malina Hood, each had 14 points in the win. The Knights (10-8, 1-1) got 24 points from Alissa Campanero and 17 points from Bryn Stark in the loss.

LJHS secures win against ‘Nado BY RICK LEBEAU Special to the Light Going into the Jan. 20 league matchup with Coronado, the La Jolla girls water polo team was still in search of their identity two-thirds of the way into the season. Looking back, they had started the season reasonably well and believed they should be contending for a CIF championship in February. Brimming with confidence and sensing they were on the verge of something unprecedented at La Jolla,

they met with disappointment in early December in a game against their league rivals, the Islanders in the ‘Nado pool. The loss definitely stung, but the girls made up for it shortly afterward by winning the Irvine Tournament, in which they completely dismantled their opponents from Simi Valley Royal High and then Irvine High in the semis and finals, respectively. Then winter break intervened and the schedule had a one-month gap between games. League play resumed

in rocky fashion with two consecutive losses to Bishop’s — the second one at home and by a large margin. With that drubbing fresh in mind, the Vikings showed up Thursday with a point to prove. On a beautiful sunny day at the Coggan Aquatic Complex pool, La Jolla came out firing on all cylinders. Victoria Frager opened the scoring for La Jolla, but the game stayed tight for most of the first quarter. Suddenly, though, the floodgates magically

FROM WATER POLO, A24 opened for the Vikings. Playing a stout defense that led to numerous shut-downs and steals, they broke a 1-1 tie with a run of four goals before the Islanders knew what hit them. Late in the second quarter, ‘Nado put together back-to-back goals, and you could sense the La Jolla partisans holding their breath. Could ‘Nado really find a way to win this after being dominated for the first 10

minutes of the game? Victoria Frager and Ariel Arcidiacano had the answer: No. With one critical goal just before half, the Vikings led 6-3 and the fans at poolside exhaled collectively.

Bumper To Bumper Q. Brad: I have been living in California for the past year and a half and I notice when I drive down the freeway in heavy traffic that motorcycle riders split the lanes and really scare the ‘you-know-what’ out of me and my Dave Stall family. Is that motorcycle practice legal? I would think not. Is there a speed limit? We moved here from Salt Lake City, Utah, and I never saw a motorcycle do what they do in California. Love your state, hate your motorcycles! A. Dave: Well, get used to it! It is legal only in California. Due to the over abundance of motor vehicles on our freeways and the massive traffic jams, it was decided by the state to allow motorcycles to do what the state calls, “white lining” which is going between traffic at a safe speed — usually 5 miles-per-hour and never speeds over 20 miles-per-hour. The reason for this is carbon monoxide poisoning. If you sit in traffic long enough while on a motorcycle, the gases could affect you. Another reason is the majority of motorcycles are air-cooled and sitting in traffic for long periods of time could do damage to the engine because of engine overheating, so be courteous and let the two-wheelers go! Q. Mary-Ann: I drive a 1987 Toyota MR2 (I know you drive one too!), and what happened the other night was frightening. I was coming down I-15 when all of a sudden a large cloud of smoke came from the rear of my car. I pulled over, called a tow truck and found out the next day I had blown a radiator hose. The

by Dave Stall

mechanic said I had to replace the bad hose before he could tell me if there was any more damage, so I agreed. He just called back and told me the head gasket was blown and it would cost around $700 to repair it. I have already paid for the tow and the hose replacement and that has put me up to a little over $200. The question is, is it worth repairing the car? I do love the little rascal, but I’m afraid if I repair it, I will push it over its value. What would you recommend as a fellow MR2 owner? A. Dave: Sorry to hear of your problems. If you are uncomfortable with the technician’s diagnosis you can check out a few things yourself. First thing I would do is look to see if the water has mixed with the engine oil. Look under the oil filler cap and on the dipstick for a chocolate milk looking color. If that is present, then the head gasket is blown. If no chocolate milk is noted, look for excessive smoke coming from the tail pipe (you should get this even if the oil is mixed with the water). If the smoke is there and the car starts running rough, then the head gasket is probably blown. As far as fixing the car, a car of that age is never worth repairing if the repairs are higher than what you can buy a replacement for. Right now you can get a good running 1987 MR2 for around $2,500. Replacing the car will cost you a minimum of $1,500 — and you have a car you don’t know the history of. But if money is no object and it is an emotional thing, then it is your call. I personally like my MR2. It gets 30 plus miles-per-gallon, it’s fun to drive and insurance is cheap. Would I put another $1,000 in the car if needed? Probably, because I know the car and like an old shoe, it fits me. Call me if you decide not to fix it. I will add it to my MR2 collection.

The all-new 2011 Jetta S. FROM LAWSUIT, A16 population of more than 1,100, ranging from preschool through high school. According to the school website, tuition ranges from $22,000 for grades K-4, to $25,000 for grades 5 and up. As a freshman, Studevent traveled with Country Day’s girls’ basketball team to Oakland for a tournament. When she arrived, she found a letter on top of her clothes addressed to “señorita” and filled with racial slurs, including the statement that she should go to Mexico, according to the lawsuit. Other incidents alleged in the lawsuit include profane notes taped to her locker, another letter mailed to her which included numerous racial slurs, plots to plant drugs in her backpack and a plot to poison her drink. Someone also put her name and facial likeness on pornographic photos on Internet websites, according to the lawsuit. Studevent first went public with her allegations in a 2008 Los Angeles Times article. School officials told the newspaper that efforts to identify the perpetrators, including handwriting analysis of notes sent to Studevent and two other students, proved inconclusive. Law enforcement was also notified about the online bullying. Levin confirmed the steps taken by the school to identify the students responsible for harassing Studevent. Bagby’s lawsuit — which is scheduled for trial on March 18 before San Diego Superior Court Judge William Nevitt Jr. — also alleges a pattern of harassment by fellow students and charges that school officials failed to ad-

dress the problem. Among Bagby’s allegations are that students vandalized her car, drove a car straight at her in a school parking lot, made threats against her over the Internet and put a dead rat in her locker. In an interview shortly after Bagby’s lawsuit was filed in 2009, Schuck, La Jolla Country Day head of school, denied any wrongdoing by the school or its officials, although he declined to address Bagby’s specific allegations due to the lawsuit. “The school stands strongly behind our actions in this matter. In no way were the steps that we took inappropriate,” Schuck said at the time. According to court records, a motion for summary judgment filed by attorneys for the school — seeking a dis-

missal of the lawsuit — is scheduled for a Feb. 18 hearing before Judge Nevitt. The motion filed by the school’s attorneys states that Bagby had a number of discipline issues during her time at the school, including stealing beer and drinking it during a school-sponsored trip to Ecuador, cheating on a chemistry test and yelling an obscenity at a parent from the opposing side during a school soccer game. Following the alleged incident at the soccer game, the school asked Bagby to withdraw from attendance at Country Day, which she later did, according to the court document. Bagby is now 18 and a college student. Through her family, she declined a request to be interviewed for this story.

Openfor Touring

What brought you to La Jolla? My husband, he was the attraction. Thirty years ago I was on vacation in San Diego and a college friend decided I needed a date for New Year’s Eve. She convinced Tom to call me and, although neither of us realized it at the time, that evening ultimately changed my life. It didn’t happen immediately, we were both working at our first jobs, mine was in Arizona, but after commuting for five years we got married and I moved here. What makes the town special to you? It’s the fact that three highly respected and nationally recognized institutions — MCASD, the La Jolla Historical Society and the Athenaeum — are within walking distance of one another. My children visit all of these organizations, usually for a school project, without realizing how lucky they are. If you could snap your fingers and have it done, what might you improve in the area? Many visitors are drawn to San Diego, and specifically to La Jolla, by our vibrant arts and culture offerings.In recognition of this, the city of San Diego invests in the arts by allocating a

Six remarkable residences ready for Bird Rock Home Tour

BY DAVE SCHWAB Staff Writer he 5th annual Bird Rock Home Tour sponsored by Bird Rock Community Council (BRCC) to benefit Bird Rock Elementary School, runs 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 29. The event promises to be the biggest and most diverse yet. The challenge each year in selecting six beautifully appointed homes to showcase on the tour is how to outshine what has come before. “Last year we had such a variety — Spanish, contemporary and traditional,” noted Betsy Witt, whose Waverly Avenue home was one of the “traditionals.”

“We strive for that every year, to get something a little different architecturally so there’s something there for everybody,” Witt added. An interior designer, Witt said there’s more than one good reason to experience Bird Rock’s home tour. “It’s a wonderful, stimulating experience, a great way to go and get fantastic ideas for home décor, landscaping, construction, or if you’re just looking for a doorknob,” she said. “I just love the idea that people will open up their homes and let you walk through them.

Resident wins essay contest with his memories of pork rinds

La Jolla Cultural Partners

BY LINDA THOMPSON Contributor Ismael Pena’s family and friends consider him a “mini-celebrity.” They’ve even asked for the La Jollan’s autograph since he won the Pepe’s El Original Mi Amor Mi Chicharrones essay contest on Dec. 10, 2010 picking up a cool $3,500 prize. Pena said winning the contest was better than meeting comedian George Lopez backstage one time. “I did not get any money meeting George,” he joked. Since writing is not his forté, Pena said he was “shocked” to find out that his essay about why he loves pork rinds (chicharrones) was chosen the overall winner from the 977 short-story submissions. The contest invited customers to write about their love for pork rinds and how they were introduced to the snack as part of Pepe’s salute to National Hispanic Heritage Month. Pena said the company

Ismael Pena, left, won the Pepe’s El Original Mi Amor Mi Chicharrones essay contest and was awarded a $3,500 prize. COURTESY was very generous to give so much in prize money. “Thirty-five hundred dollars is a lot of money,” he said. He emphasized that he is not bragging, but is just “happy,” and so he naturally wants to share the story of how he won. Pena said his first reaction to the news of the win was a text to his wife. Then, he told his friends and family to go to the Internet at http://pepessnacks.com/pep escontest/index_winners.ph

p#story1to read his winning story from the contest. Pena credits his wife for introducing him to Pepe’s Chicharrones a couple of years ago. He said he normally does not eat processed foods. “I usually avoid fast foods and commercial snacks because they lack the authenticity of homemade food,” he explained. “I am usually disappointed (with snack chips). But I was surprised, I was very

impressed, I did not expect them (Pepe’s Chicharrones) to be so tasty.” Pena said he saw the contest advertised on a Pepe’s Chicharrones bag that he bought, but it was his wife’s encouragement that persuaded him to enter. She felt like he had a story to tell. Pena said his story is a reflection on how eating Pepe’s Chicharrones brings back memories of his impoverished but loving, close-knit family.

His essay tells the story of his grandmother’s pilgrimage to the United States with his dad and uncle, who were just boys at the time. They walked 800 miles from Chihuahua to the border to escape the revolution under Pancho Villa in the 1900s, and later became migrant field workers upon entering the United States. It was during his migrant field days that his grandmother introduced him to

chicharrones, also known as pig rinds. They would get the pig skins from the market or from slaughtered pigs on ranches. “The pig skin is the cheap part that is thrown away,” Pena noted, and reminisced about his grandmother deep frying the chicharrones in lard on an open flame. The win is more than supplemental money for Pena’s family vacation to Costa Rica. He said it represents his grandmother’s legacy of her 250 descendants who have transformed their lives from a heritage of poor migrant field workers into prosperous professionals. Pena, 69, has a contracting business and is now grooming his two sons to take it over. Even though tough times have slowed down business, the company still thrives due to its good reputation — just like Pepe’s Chicharrones. Note: Pepe’s El Original is produced by snack food maker Rudolph Foods.

Next La Jolla Symphony & Chorus concert is one of contrasts BY JENNA JAY Contributor Classical and modern styles of orchestral music will come together for the La Jolla Symphony & Chorus in its third concert of the 56th season. The musicians will welcome the cello, piano and percussion ensemble Real Quiet to Mandeville Auditorium at UCSD for performances Feb. 5-6, part of the current “Face the Music” series. The concert will feature pieces contrasting in musical periods and composers, utilizing stylistic similarities as a common element to craft a provocative and unexpected sound. For musical director

mula. Heighten the contrast. Make the colors more vivid.” Harnessing these orchestral colors with the stage as a canvas, LJSC will paint a musical portrait featuring Claude Debussy’s “Nuages” and “Fêtes,” two of his three nocturnes, as well as the ballet “Jeux.” These pieces contrast with more modern selections that will include Phil Kline’s

“A Dream and Its Opposite,” and the U.S. premiere of Iannis Xenakis’ “Metastasis” (alpha version). Kline, who will join the concert, composed “A Dream and Its Opposite” for piano, cello and percussion soloists and full orchestra. The piece will feature guest artists Real Quiet, first-time performers with LJSC, in its world premiere. Describing the shift between the classical and more modern styles of music included in the concert, Schick said, “We’re taking a different approach, but that doesn’t mean rejecting the classical pieces.” In an unconventional manner, this approach adds another dimension to the program with what Schick calls “music for the eyes,” especially in “Jeux” and “Metastasis.” “‘Jeux’ was originally a ballet, and even though we’re not going to have a dance there, it still has a visual side. It’s very provocative that way.” In terms of visual music, “Jeux” will be contrasted yet also accompanied by Xenakis’ more modern piece “Metastasis,” which also exudes a musical illustration.

poser, Xenakis wrote “Metastasis” in the mid-1950s while he was working on designs of the Philips Pavilion used for the 1958 Brussels World’s Fair. The piece brings a shade of that architectural project to the music. “Literally, the shapes of that building are translated into musical shapes, and I think that is just fascinating,” Schick said. “It has a sort of visual sensibility.”

With heightened senses of sound and sight at the forefront, Schick hopes to conduct a memorable performance in which symphony enthusiasts of all calibers can enjoy.

Curse of the Upscale Address strikes again Recently, the Curse of the Upscale Address struck again. A friend was driving down Nautilus Street after dropping off her kids at the top of the hill when the ancient pickup truck in front of her inexplicably slammed on its brakes. She hit him. She jumped out of her SUV and ran to see if the other car’s driver was hurt. Fortunately, he didn’t appear to be. “Don’t worry,” he said, as he got out of the truck, “I’m not going to sue you.” My friend found that comment – the first words out of the man’s mouth – oddly unreassuring. She asked him why he had stopped so

Let Inga tell you ...

FROM QUESTIONS, B1 small portion of the hotel tax paid by tourists to arts organizations. However, funding has varied from year to year and has declined as those hotel taxes have been increasingly used to cover the city’s other obligations. Our community and economy would benefit greatly by providing funding to arts organizations that is certain and enhanced. As the economy improves and more tourists

suddenly. They were nowhere near a cross street or schools. “Oh,” he said, “I meant to put my foot on the accelerator but I put it on the brake instead.” This sounds like a set-up to me, although as my friend points out, set up or not, she did, alas, run into him. Still, it seems to me that he should at least be cited for a DWI (Driving While an Imbecile). It was only days later that the injur y claim was filed. I guess one of the costs of living here is being well insured so that you can pay off people who sue you because you live here. In bad economic times like these, it seems to be a growth industr y. In my nearly four decades in Lets Sue-Y a 92037, I’m afraid I’ve known waaaay too many cases like this. In the most popular scenario, there’s a minor fender bender but the fendee suddenly finds himself in the deliriously happy circumstance of having been hit by a La Jolla ZIP code. Al-

spend more money in San Diego, a set percentage of taxes collected from those tourists — perhaps a modest 1 percent of the 10 ? percent now collected by the city — should be designated specifically for arts and culture funding. This would not only contribute to the stability and the vitality of local organizations such as the La Jolla Playhouse, La Jolla Music Society, MCASD, and so forth, but would benefit the entire

San Diego community. Who inspires you? Unselfish actions. If you hosted a dinner party for eight, whom (living or deceased) would you invite? I would definitely include Mayor Jerry Sanders and Gov. Jerry Brown so I can share with them my ideas about the importance of art and culture; Andy Warhol, to discern what he was picking up on locally

though there wasn’t so much as a scratch on the either car, the victim is suddenly plagued by headaches, vision problems, back issues, and a neck in need of a brace. His grunge band, he maintains, was about to hit the big time and now he can never work again. The last time I was called for jur y duty was just such a fender bender case. I should mention I’ve been on jur y duty 11 times. That computer just loves my name. Or maybe, since I went back to my maiden name after my divor ce and then changed it again when I re-married, it thinks of me as fresh meat each time. I was seriously tempted to stay on this last jury just so I could be sure this young 20-something perfectly healthy-looking creep (who appeared to be wearing a tie for the first time in his scraggly-haired life) wasn’t awarded a dime. But it was also going to be three weeks out of my life (again) and in my heart, I know that you

because he was a genius at recognizing contemporary thought and trends; then, to make the evening really difficult, I would add Gertrude Stein, Pablo Picasso and Ernest Hemingway for totally selfish reasons. This would allow me to recreate Stein’s Salon evenings and give me the chance to question these harbingers of early 20th century culture for insight.

Two new photo exhibits open Saturday at the MOPA Two new year-long exhibitions, “Inside Out: Selections from the Permanent Collection,” and “Imagine That! Photographing an Invisible World,” will open at 11 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 29 at the Museum of Photographic Arts (MoPA) in Balboa Park with walkthroughs guided by artists and curators. “Imagine That” is an indepth examination of the pursuit of photography to capture invisible worlds and unseeable phenomenon. The exhibition contains work from 24 photographers, ranging from scientists to artists and commercial studio photographers — all culled from MoPA’s rich permanent collection. “Inside Out” will feature 15 photographs, among them Hill and Adamson’s stunning 19th century portraits and the work of 20th century masters, such as Ansel Adams and Berenice Abbott, exhibited alongside contemporary works by Bill Armstrong, Ana Busto and Nicholas Nixon.

The 2011 Super Bowl will have the largest attendance in Super Bowl history. Organizers say it’s true: Super Bowl XLV (set for Sunday, Feb. 6 at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas) pits the Packers against the Steelers at the home of the Dallas Cowboys, which typically has a capacity of 80,000 fans. For the Super Bowl, the NFL will increase that capacity to more than 100,000 people. If you’d like to catch some of the pregame hype, turn on your TV by 3 p.m. But don’t expect the game to start before 3:30 p.m. Christina Aguilera will sing the National Anthem and the Black Eyed Peas will perform at half time. The cost of a 30second commercial during the broadcast on Fox Network is $2.8-$3 million.

Art museum exhibits focus on two distinct British painters

‘Big Lawn,’ 2008-2010 Howard Hodgkin, oil on wood, by Howard Hodgkin will be displayed at The San Diego Museum of Art. (Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens), and Ann Ford, later Mrs. Thicknesse (Cincinnati Art Museum). The exhibit will also feature a selection of period dresses from the Cincinnati Art Museum to provide guests with a view of the material accessories of the “modern woman.” Eighteenth-century viewers appreciated these paintings differently than viewers do today, according to the curators who organized

the exhibit. In his own time, Gainsborough’s portraits of actresses, performers and courtesans were seen as unconventional, even radical, not only because of the women they portrayed, but also because of the unconventional way in which they were painted. In his use of provocative postures and slashing brushwork, Gainsborough’s portraits differed from those of his peers. They were the way he asserted his own place as the premier painter of modern life.

Two exhibits representing two very different art worlds will open Thursday, Jan. 27 at the San Diego Museum of Art in Balboa Park: “Howard Hodgkin: Time and Place” and “Thomas Gainsborough and the Modern Woman.” British-born Hodgkin (1932) is “a brilliant colorist” who plays with the notion of “representational pictures of emotional situations” in his work, according to press materials advancing the show. “Hodgkin defies definitions.” This exhibition of more than 20 paintings, spans the last 10 years of his career. SDMA is to be the only U.S. venue for this show. Thomas Gainsborough (17271788)is considered among the greatest portrait painters of the Western tradition.This fun exhibit features 11 of his paintings of “notorious society women.” The works are on loan from collections in the United States and Britain. SDMAis the second and final venue for this show. Among the portraits on view through May 1 will be Mrs. Sarah Siddons (National Gallery, London), the Duchess of Devonshire (National Gallery of Art, Washington), Giovanna Baccelli (Tate, London), Grace Dalrymple (Metropolitan Museum of Art), Viscountess Ligonier

Dr. Van Cheng graduated with highest honors from Harvard University and trained in surgery at UCSF. We understand that these tough economic times are hard for our patients.

Las Patronas awards its grants at annual luncheon BY SUSAN DEMAGGIO Lifestyles Editor Proceeds from Las Patronas’ 2010 Jewel Ball “Heart & Soul” ($781,187 in the form of 10 grants) were presented to preselected beneficiaries at a Jan. 19 luncheon hosted by the La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club. After Las Patronas President Sallie Warren welcomed attendees, Heart & Soul ball chair Lise Wilson and co-chairs Lisa Albanez and Kristi Pieper distributed checks to the grateful recipients who each said a few words about their programs. Warren reminded the crowd that since its founding 65 years ago, Las Patronas has raised $15 million that has been “granted”

to worthy charities “in all corners of San Diego.” A highlight of the luncheon was the presentation of the annual Las Patronas Spirit of Giving Award, which went to Randy Cutting of Abbey Party Rents, or as one ball hostess referred to him, “Brother Randy of the Abbey.” Cutting bought the Abbey Party Rents company in August 1990 and by the following Jewel Ball in 1991, he was an integral part of the team, supplying equipment and partyware at special rates and with extensive donations-in-kind to help Las Patronas achieve its fundraising goals. The luncheon ended with 2011 Jewel Ball Chair Sue

Wagener reminding guests that the 65th “Sapphire” ball will have a marine theme with the band Liquid Blue booked for the benefit on Aug. 6 at the La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club. Sapphire will raise funds for the following 12 beneficiaries: Arc of San Diego, Family Health Centers of San Diego, Friends of The Riford Center, La Jolla Playhouse, Mountain Health & Community Services, REINS Therapeutic Horsemanship Program, San Diego Fire Rescue Foundation, San Diego Food Bank Corporation, San Diego Junior Theatre, Scripps Mercy Hospital Chula Vista, UCSD Shiley Eye Center and the YWCA of San Diego County.

The fastest way to sell your home is the local newspaper... NOT the Internet, Facts and research says Home-Selling the La Jolla Light: 78% of the “home buyer pool” is local and successful agents use papers to attract the best leads— while the Internet is best used in a “support” role The biggest problem with listing your home on the internet is this...the internet is huge! It would take hours to find all the available listings of homes for sale in this town—if you could even find them all...which you can’t. This is no doubt why Borrell Associates, the nationally known research firm reports that 66% of Americans rely on their local newspaper to buy and sell their homes, compared with only 20% using the internet. The biggest reason that a paper like the La Jolla Light is such a powerful lead generating tool for agents, is the paper’s long-term credibility with readers. When your home is listed or shown in this paper, it benefits from the paper’s thorough reporting and “believability”.

✔ 70% - 80% of home-buyers, buy locally. ✔ The La Jolla Light is delivered by the Postal Service ... to each resident’s home. ✔ Those most likely to purchase your home read The Light. ✔ Each week The Light features HOMES SOLD in 92037 and their actual price. ✔ The Light and it’s sister publications, reaches 9 of the 10 wealthiest zip codes in San Diego. ✔ These publications reach 200,000 “qualified” home buyers—every week. ✔ Serious home buyers are reading these publications to find “prestigious” homes & estates, like yours. ✔ The top agents in La Jolla advertise in The Light, because it sells homes. Ask your agent if they are using the La Jolla Light and sister publications. If not, have your agent call the La Jolla Light at 858-875-5945 and ask for Claire to get your home sold faster.

Young Family Devastated After Tragic Car Accident… Three Boys Spend Time in Foster Care; Family Fighting Leads to Bitter Feud in Public Court Recently, a Southern California family was in a tragic car accident. The parents died and their family was thrown into a nightmare. This is a true story. The parents had talked about naming guardians to provide for the care of their sons and the money they’d leave behind. They never got around to it. They likely thought their family would be able to work out who would care for the boys and their money, with love and grace, if anything happened. That’s not what happened. After the accident, the boys were in the foster care system for a short time. Then, over 1,000 pages of court documents, 9 lawyers, and tens of thousands of dollars later, the boys ended up with their aunt and their money being managed by a professional charging $100/hour until they turn 18. Is that what the parents would have wanted? If they had known what would happen, they would have done everything they could to protect their kids and plan for their future. Learn from their experience! It’s Easy to Protect Your Family and Your Assets with the guidance of a Personal Planning Lawyer. Don’t be one of those people who put off estate planning and guardianship designations for “tomorrow” because tomorrow may never come.
