Group plans coastal homeless shelter in Pacific Beach By Pat Sherman A nonprofit organization that serves hot meals to the homeless in La Jolla and Ocean Beach is hoping to expand its outreach by opening a comprehensive, emergency and long-term homeless shelter in Pacific Beach. The shelter would offer three meals a day, plus showers, a place to receive mail and access to medical care, computers and programs that help the homeless gain life skills, enter drug and alcohol recovery programs and find jobs. For the past tresha Souza pours several years, cider at a holiday the nonprofit dinner for homeless at organization, mary, Star of the Sea So Others May church in La Jolla. Eat, Inc., has served free dinners to the homeless on Tuesdays at Mary, Star of the Sea Catholic Church in La Jolla and at Sacred Heart Church of Ocean Beach. The group’s founder, Tresha Souza, said she saw the growing need for a shelter serving San Diego’s beach communities, from Ocean Beach to La Jolla. Ryan Pocock, associate director for community development at Father Joe’s Villages in downtown San Diego’s East Village, said homeless people in the beach communities tend to stay there, unless they are seeking specific medical or other services downtown. Souza said she believes homeless people in coastal areas tend to feel safer there than in downtown, where they are more vulnerable to violent attacks. “I don’t believe in my heart of hearts people want to live on the beach,” she said. Souza is currently working with a team to explore fundraising strategies to purchase a building at 4275 Mission Bay Drive in Pacific Beach for the shelter. The 2.89acre, 43,000-square-foot facility once housed Guy Hill Cadillac. Souza said the location is ideal because it is not in a residential area, and is convenient See SheLter, a7

Museum on the Move
Got thoughts on where to house the Bird Rock History Museum? ■ E-mail:
Philomene Offen at the 2009 debut of the Bird rock history museum inside Bird rock coffee roasters at 5627 La Jolla Blvd. her storyboards will be replaced by the works of area artists. By Dave SchwaB ird Rock History Museum, formerly housed at Bird Rock Coffee Roasters, is looking for a new home. “It was great having the exhibit here but it was just time for a change,” said Chuck Patton, owner of the coffee shop about the museum’s two-year debut at his establishment. Patton plans to replace the Bird Rock memorabilia with revolving works by area artists. He said hosting the museum was “really fun,” and it helped locals reconnect with the history of Bird Rock. “People would come in who used to live here in the 1950s or ’60s, and look at the boards and comment on the places where they grew up or played,” he said. The makeshift Bird Rock History Museum began as a storyboards project by resident Philomene Offen, who volunteered to chronicle the town’s story for the 2009 Taste of Bird Rock event. Offen said she never imagined that one-time effort would culminate in hundreds of hours of ongoing research and a full-blown exhibit. But Offen is now at a crossroads. Should she search for new exhibit space for her storyboards? Or should she turn them into a scrapbook and

Paddle Out set for late surfer Ted Smith
Theodore Kenneth Smith
A paddle out for Theodore Kenneth Smith will be held at 1 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 15 at WindanSea Beach. Smith, 52, considered by many a WindanSea surfing legend, died Saturday afternoon, Dec. 31 from drowning after he had an apparent heart attack while surfing. Smith had previously worked as a Realtor with Team De Jourday at Coldwell Banker La Jolla, and had been employed with the Hyatt Aventine at the time of his death. “It happened around 11 a.m.,” said Ozstar De Jourday, a lifelong friend and surf companion. De Jourday said Smith was surfing
with three other people, two adolescents and another man in his 60s, at the time of the incident. He said a friend in the lineup had waved Smith ahead and wished him a happy New Year while he was heading into a wave. A short time later, a member of the group noticed Smith “swimming irregularly with his head down in the water, which didn’t look right.” “It’s unfortunate, he was known by a lot of lifeguards,” commented Andy Lerum, San Diego Lifeguard spokesman. De Jourday said of Smith, whom he has surfed with since they were 9
and 11 years old, respectively, “he used to have the longest, shoulderlength white hair — it was just the ultimate surf look with real blue eyes.” De Jourday added, “The way he went out with a lot of love, doing it right there at WindanSea. … I don’t think you could write a better script.” A makeshift memorial has been set up in Smith’s honor at WindanSea Beach. Smith died in the emergency room at Scripps La Jolla Hospital at 1:50 p.m., according to the Medical Examiner.

Doctor earns award for her work in whole-person healing By Arthur LightBourn Last month in New York City, cardiologist Mimi Guarneri, 52, was awarded the 2011 Bravewell Physician Leadership Award for contributions toward transforming the U.S. health care system through the use of integrative medicine. The founder and medical director of the Scripps Center for Integrative Medicine in La Jolla said she’ll use the $100,000 award to support education and research for integrative medicine through a foundation she’s formed called Miraglo. But parallel to her professional achievements is the personal transformation Dr. Guarneri experienced, from a self-described Type A, stressed-out, overachiever who “was trained to see the heart as a simple mechanical pump,” to a physician whose patients taught her to appreciate the heart as a center of great complexity and power that deserves the best of nurturing. She tells the story of the path to her present position in her book, “The Healing
Heart,” where she writes about the defining moments of her life. “On an evening when I was 8 years old, my vivacious 40-year-old mother told me she had a pain in her chest, then got into bed and died of a heart attack.” “Mimi” was alone with her mother at the time. “Part of the reason I became a heart doctor was to overcome the powerlessness I felt.” To compound the hurt, a decade later, her father, a life insurance salesman by day and poet/comedian by night, also died of a heart attack at 50 — and Mimi was 17. Another defining moment, though she didn’t realize it at the time, came while interning at Cornell after graduating from medical school at the top of her class and thinking she was hot stuff. She encountered an elderly doctor who refused to be hurried as she and a flock of other interns followed him around while he chatted, joked, and patiently listened to patients and their longwinded anecdotes. She recalls glancing at her
Erminia M. (Mimi) guarneri, M.D., FACC watch, wanting to get on with more important tasks in her pressing schedule. When he finished, the old
professor removed his glasses, peered solemnly at the interns and delivered this bit of advice: “If you let patients
speak and tell you their stories, and you really listen, they’ll give you their diagnosis. But if you keep interrupting them and they don’t get to tell it, you’ll keep ordering tests and lab work and you’ll miss the answer that’s right in front of you.” Initially, as a physician in Scripps Clinic’s interventional cardiology program during the mid-1990s, Dr. Guarneri inserted thousands of coronary stents into heart patients. “My job as a cardiologist was to sit in my office and wait for someone to have a heart attack, then rush in and try to save him. I spent my days propping open their arteries with metal sleeves called stents, without considering why they had closed in the first place. “I think it’s great work, sometimes life-saving work, but, at the same time, it does nothing to prevent heart disease. It’s a mechanical fix for a problem that’s already there, but it does nothing to get to the underlying cause. “We started to do research here with Dr. Dean Ornish,
where we looked at whether lifestyle change could actually reverse plaque in vessels, reverse heart disease.” The research revealed that people with severe coronary heart disease were able to stop or reverse it without the use of drugs or surgery by making comprehensive lifestyle changes. The interventions used included stress management through yoga and meditation, a low-fat diet, smoking cessation, moderate exercise and social support. “When we were coming to the end of the research, the nurse of the program, Rauni King, and I saw such an impact on the patients that we thought, ‘How can we let a program like this go?’ ” As a result, Guarneri and King co-founded the Scripps Center for Integrative Medicine in 1999. The center takes a “whole person” approach to treating disease and improving health by blending conventional Western medicine using the latest imaging technology for early disease detection,

— Mimi Guarneri Cardiologist
FROM DOCTOR, A4 along with evidence-based complementary and alternative therapies, such as acupuncture, yoga and healing touch. The focus is on designing customized plans to help patients manage chronic illness, reduce their risk for disease, and lead healthier, happier lives. An extensive class schedule includes a vegetarian cooking school, yoga and body-mind lectures. “We believe that health is continually influenced by how we live our lives and how we relate to the world around us,” Guarneri said. “And we believe that healing starts from within.” Also located within the center is the Shiley Sport and Health Center that includes a weight room, cardio exercise room, 25-yard outdoor lap pool, and an outdoor running track. Guarneri reports in the U.S. today, $2.5 trillion is spent treating seven diseases
— heart disease, diabetes, asthma, some cancers, hypertension, stroke and obesity. “These are all preventable,” she insists. “Yet what we keep doing in health care is we play this game where we say: ‘Name it. Blame it. Tame it.’ “In the last year, we have spent $308 billion on pharmaceutical therapies. We are consuming 48 percent of all the pharmaceuticals made for the entire world in North America. And we spent $14.6 billion on anti-psychotic drugs, $10 billion on anti-depressants, $13 billion on statins [to lower cholesterol], and $13 billion on proton-pump inhibitors [to reduce gastric acid]. “What this tells me is that the United States of America is psychotic, depressed with high cholesterol, and has acid. That’s the reality. And we can’t keep going like this. “The planet is getting sicker and people are getting sicker. And we need to look at both

And to me now, prevention is the best intervention. “We can’t keep pumping the food filled with partially hydrogenated fats and oils, high fructose corn syrup, and sugar and salt in everything, and expect people to get well. “We have also to take responsibility. Just like you put your safety belt on, you have to take responsibility for what you eat, to exercise, to take care of the planet, and so on.” Personally, Dr. Mimi said she’s been a vegetarian since 1996. She exercises, meditates, works in her garden, and walks her dog. “The good news is,” she said. “Integrative medicine is emerging nationwide as a vital force within hospitals, clinics and even the military.”

passion shortly after arriving at my new home at 528 Colima St. with my parents in late 1945 … Gunnery Point was still in operation at the foot of Colima Street and the anti-aircraft guns and the 5-foot guns from ships offshore scared me …” Marriner recounts in his manuscript titled, “A Few Distant Memories of Growing Up in La Jolla.” “I was about 12 when I began skin diving … through practice, my diving skills improved until I could get two abalones on one dive, spear edible Cabezone and Calico Bass, grab lobsters, and have enough to feed my parents and my sister.” Marriner recalls how the early days of surfing in La Jolla began for him with a 10-foot, 6-inch Hot Curl de-
sign surfboard. He also remembers creating skateboards by “nailing roller-skate wheels to a 2 by 4 board.” He and friends graduated to Soap Box Derby cars, then plywood go-carts powered by lawn mower engines without mufflers that he said, “irritated the heck out of neighbors who would call the police.” “Life was safer in those days when we always left the front door open during the summer and didn’t worry about thieves … the ice man, the mailman, the milkman, the egg man and the paperboy were important people for my family since they always passed along the latest neighborhood gossip and kept my mother informed of what was going on in La Jolla and the rest of the world.” Graduated from San Diego State College in 1965 and married shortly afterwards, Marriner joined the Coast Guard for a tour and never lived in La Jolla again — though he never fails to look back. “My heart’s still there and I frequently think about summer nights with my window open listening to the sound of beach rocks rolling, being pushed to and fro by summer storm waves,” he said.

Michael Francis Hall, pictured in this 1922 photo, is known as the father of Bird Rock. This image is part of the Bird Rock History Museum collection. COURTESY Noting Marriner’s manuscript “provides a richly-detailed trip back in time to a fairly idyllic Bird Rock of the ’40s, ’50s, and ’60s,” historian Offen noted many of the photos he provided to her for reuse in the Bird Rock History Museum “have never been published before.” She said his rare account and pictures are exactly the type of materials she’s always seeking. “I had not been able to track down any real information about Bird Rock businesses in the 1950s and 1960s, but Harry has amazing recall of them,” she said. “I think this project is truly a gift to Bird Rock and
I’m very grateful to him that he took the time to do it.” She added that the people who remember Bird Rock in the 1940s are aging and passing on and “it would be a shame if all of this information were lost.” “I had always hoped that if my Bird Rock History Museum did nothing else, it could be a central point for the ongoing collection of information and photos about our unique neighborhood,” Offen said adding she’s generally collecting photos one at a time these days and “never anticipated getting the gold mine that is Harry’s memoir.”
Milestones in Bird Rock History 1906: Developer Michael Francis Hall deeds “Bird Rock-by-the-Sea.” Sales are poor. December 1917: First war time sinking of a U.S. submarine occurs off Bird Rock when two F-series submarines collide in the fog on a training mission, sinking one of them within 10 seconds and killing all 19 aboard. The submarine is still there. 1921: The whitewashed rocks on the hillside spelling “Bird Rock” are first seen in an aerial photo. Rearranging the rocks will be a favorite teenage prank for decades to come. 1920s: The area is still largely populated by Japanese truck farmers. Lots on the east side of La Jolla Boulevard go for $550 (corner lot) and $450 (inside lot). Developer tries to sell lots based on the lively presence of some 200 seals in local waters. July 4, 1924: Trolley service begins from downtown San Diego to downtown La Jolla, with a stop in Bird Rock. Service ends in 1940. Late 1940s: Real estate sales in Bird Rock finally take off after a lackluster 40 years. Bird Rock’s trademark little box houses spring up by the dozens. September 1952: Responding to the population boom, Bird Rock Elementary School opens. Early 1960s: The Bird Rock rock sign disappears from view in the overgrowth, not to be seen again.

Sue Adams, who is minister of communications and programs for St. James bythe-Sea Episcopal Church in La Jolla, is part of the team assembled to help get the project off the ground. “I’m really impressed at the quality of people who are coming forward to be on our core team,” she said. “This is such a big project. It’s going to take a couple of years to get all the pieces together and raise the funds for the property.” Souza’s vision includes offering some assisted living space for the elderly, who can in turn help meet the needs of the homeless in a symbiotic relationship. She also hopes to provide beds and resources for teens and young adults that have phased out of the foster care system, and often wind up on the streets. To help fund the project, Souza plans to open three recycling centers in Pacific Beach, where there are currently none. She hopes this self-sustaining, environmentally-friendly aspect will appeal to financial backers. She

“It’s very possible that it could be a good thing,” Souza said. “People just need to be open to it.” Amy Gonyeau, chief operating officer of the Alpha Project for the homeless, which runs a permanent supportive housing program, residential treatment facility and winter shelter, said that from a countywide perspective, homeless advocates are working to establish such “one-stop” housing and service centers for the homeless beyond the core of San Diego, where other homeless populations
can access them. “The City Council has been very vocal about that,” Gonyeau said. Pocock said Father Joe’s looks forward to hearing more about Souza’s plans. “Everyone on the housing service end needs to start working together,” he said. “We need to come up with solutions so that we don’t have so many people on the street.” People wishing to donate their time or professional expertise to the effort should contact Tresha Souza at (858) 414-8281.

Scorecard: A look at how community projects fared in 2011 By Dave SchwaB email@example.com Here’s a peek at how those profiled in 2010’s Voices for La Jolla fared with their endeavors in 2011. n Phil Coller, co-owner of Everett Stunz and president of the La Jolla Village Merchants Association (LJVMA), helped the new business group hit the ground running. “We made a lot of progress,” said Coller of efforts that included creating committees, establishing a budget, and devising a 5-year strategic plan. “Persuading the community we were an open organization that would conduct our business in full view,” was an obstacle to overcome. LJVMA, he added, believes the key to the business community’s future lies in restoring its past. “A high priority is to get back to a village feel,” he said noting La Jolla has gone through renewal many times in its 100-plus year history. “We’re on the verge of the latest one, to revive La Jolla and make it a modern version of what it used to be, which was a village.” Future LJVMA challenges include beautifying the Village, finding just the right number and kind of events to host, and figuring how best to draw customers in the evening hours. n Scientist John May, chair of the finance committee of the La Jolla Cluster Association, characterized the district’s financial situation as “a mess.” May and others are still trying to figure out how to plan for uncertainty, given the state legislature’s consistent underfunding of education. “We have these boom-and-bust cycles, and right now it’s a very down cycle,” he said noting all the district can do in responding to state funding shortfalls is cut even deeper into San Diego Unified School District’s operating budget.
“We’re way past cutting fat and into muscle and bone — there’s no fluff,” he acknowledged, adding, “What really worries me is the long-term effects of this kind of budgeting.” May believes in changing the mechanism by which education is funded statewide so that it’s “not such a roller coaster ride.” “What the kids really need is a long-term plan in California: We don’t have that,” he said. n The “jury’s still out,” said Terry Underwood, general manager of Grande Colonial Hotel La Jolla and board member on San Diego North Convention and Visitors Bureau, about the effectiveness of how the Bureau spent the 10 percent of funds allocated to it by the Tourism Marketing District (about $2.5 million) in 2011. “It’s a case of half of my marketing works — I just don’t know which half,” he quipped. “I think we all had a better year than 2010,” noting long-term results are difficult to gauge as success depends on public relations and marketing efforts. In August 2010, the tourism organization serving North County turned over marketing duties to the San Diego Convention and Visitors Bureau to consolidate promotion of local hotels and attractions. Underwood said San Diego North’s board focused on restructuring and reutilizing TMD funds to “impact tourism within our sub-region.” Underwood noted North is tapping the San Diego Convention and Visitor Bureau’s resources to help use those funds. n Buzz Woolley, venture capitalist and founding member of the La Jolla Community

include artists, accountants, doctors, ER nurses and lawyers. n Progress was made on long-range plans to make Torrey Pines Road (TPR) safer for pedestrians, bicyclists and drivers, noted Sherry Nooravi who lives in the TPR corridor gateway from I-5 and has led the campaign for improvements there. But she believes more can — and should – be done to make the corridor safer for pedestrians in the near term. “It is no safer for pedestrians today than it was at the beginning of 2011,” she cautioned, noting in July, La Jolla Community Planning Association Trustees voted to add V-calms, narrow lanes, trim vegetation, improve the safety of debris fences in the corridor, as well as to start work on Segment 4. Segment 4 stretches from Little Street to La Jolla Shores Drive — the entrance to the Village and the longest segment — which will be done first in the estimated $26 million Torrey Pines Corridor Improvement Project. “Residents for Torrey Pines Safety would like to see action on the approved motions, small changes that can help with safety, be started immediately and kick off the project,” Nooravi concluded. n Last year, English teacher Susan Minnicks was busy empowering Muirlands Middle School students to make a difference via an after-school Social Action Club. She said members’ efforts to identify groups worthy of their support, then raise funds or items for them, has borne fruit. “So far we’ve collected and wrapped almost 1,000 gift bath kits for Rachel’s Women’s Shelter downtown,” Minnicks said. “We raised $1,066 for UNICEF at Halloween, and we’ve started a small fund for a girls’ school in Afghanistan. Most recently we collected some art supplies and small puzzles that will be taken to a school in Myanmar.”
Foundation, a nonprofit with a mission to improve the quality of life by providing leadership for effective philanthropy, praised the Foundation’s efforts in 2011. Woolley spearheaded the Foundation’s latest endeavor, a series of signs along the coastline highlighting the local environment. “This year, in cooperation with the Birch Aquarium, we installed two prototypes,” he said. “One is located on the railing above steps to the beach at the very south end of Scripps Institute of Oceanography and the other at The Birch.” In 2012, Woolley said the Foundation hopes to install a dozen or so more signs along the coast in La Jolla. “We are confident that the La Jolla Foundation can raise the money,” he said. “We are awaiting approval of the idea from local citizen groups and the City of San Diego.” n The task of organizing the annual Jewel Ball, the biggest fundraiser of the year for Las Patronas, a philanthropic group with a long history of grant giving, fell to its immediate past president Sallie Warren. She said the group held its own in 2011, raising slightly more than $600,000. “Our stalwart supporters are still here for us,” Warren said, pointing out San Diego is fortunate to be a dynamic town with vibrant biotech, medical care, and university communities. Though donations were down slightly, Warren noted, membership in Las Patronas is up by two over the traditional 50. The group’s motto is “50 women making a difference.” “It’s an amazing symphony of players, everybody has their talents,” she said. Members

Scripps researcher calls for better care of the deep blue sea By Chris Palmer The deep ocean is under attack by climatic and economic forces, and without proper stewardship, this important resource could be irreversibly damaged, warned Scripps Institution of Oceanography Distinguished Professor Lisa A. Levin. She delivered the message recently to a capacity audience at a Jeffrey B. Graham ‘Perspectives on Ocean Science’ lecture hosted by the Birch Aquarium. Levin’s talk, “A New Imperative for DeepOcean Stewardship,” detailed the ways in which changes in ocean temperature and chemistry, as well as growing economic opportunities, are placing new pressures on deep-ocean ecosystems. Levin has conducted research of deepocean ecosystems on the margins of the Pacific, Indian and Atlantic Oceans in more than 30 oceanographic expeditions over the past 3 decades using ships, submersibles and remotely operated vehicles to collect samples and conduct experiments. “The deep ocean covers over half of the planet but most of it is less well known than the surface of the moon,” she said. In addition to the enormous biodiversity it hosts, the deep ocean provides numerous benefits to humans and the planet as a whole. It is the source of many biological products utilized in industry and medicine. The sea floor is the habitat of bacteria and other microorganisms that are the basis of most marine food chains. The sea floor also performs the vital service of sequestering excess carbon dioxide from the Earth’s atmosphere.
Up next On Monday, Jan. 9 from 6:30 to 8 p.m., at Birch Aquarium, marine conservationist Octavio Aburto-Oropeza will discuss the restoration of a marine ecosystem near the southern tip of Mexico’s Baja peninsula over the 10 years since it became a protected national park. The lecture is free to members, $8 to the public, and $5 to students/educators. RSVP requested: (858) 534-5771.
scripps institution of Oceanography Distinguished Professor lisa a. levin Courtesy
Currently, said Levin, human activity is threatening the deep ocean on a variety of fronts. Climate change will likely increase the amount of carbon dioxide and methane gas in the ocean, leading to ocean acidification and deoxygenation. The result will be a loss of deep-water corals and disruption of all marine ecosystems. Over the past 40 years, humans have greatly expanded the range of depths in which they fish. This practice is unsustainable due to the low reproductive rates and
slow growth of the large fish at those depths. Humans have also increasingly been engaged in bottom trawling, which, according to Levin “leaves a barren wasteland and flat surfaces in its wake.” Equally damaging in its impact is the mining of the ocean floor, which is starting to occur near the coastal regions of some developing countries. Operations in Namibia and Papua New Guinea will essentially vacuum the ocean floor for scraps of mineral resources, in a process that Levin compared to strip mining.
“There is a need for improved and coordinated stewardship of deep waters,” she said, pointing to the confusion created by the enormous diversity in the regulation of a wide variety of activities, such as fishing and mining, in the deep ocean amongst the more than 120 countries that claim coastal jurisdiction. Even when regulations are clearly stated, “Enforcement in the deep sea is a major challenge due to lack of resources, though remote sensing technology is starting to help,” said Levin. Levin ended her lecture with a quote by New York Times writer Verlyn Klinkenborg. “It is not how many species we discover. It is how to protect them once we found them, and how to keep from destroying the species we do not know before we have a chance to find them.”

Expanded marine protection areas irk some fishermen By Dave SchwaB firstname.lastname@example.org Fishermen and other ocean users unconvinced of the need for Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) further restricting fishing in La Jolla and elsewhere along the San Diego coast are decrying changes that took effect Jan. 1. MPAs required by the 1999 Marine Life Protection Act and adopted by the California Fish and Game Commission in December 2010 expand the size of the marine reserve at south La Jolla by two city blocks — 7 square-miles of protection in total — which now stretches from Palomar Avenue to Missouri Street in Pacific Beach, as well as retaining the historic MPA at La Jolla Shores stretching to the Scripps Pier. “Our fisheries are very healthy and our current regulations are working very well to protect our great local resources,” said La Jolla financial adviser and kayak fisherman Kurt Hoffman, whose landing of a near-record 52.1-pound yellowtail caught off La Jolla on Dec. 10, he claims, is testimony that the state is trying to fix something that isn’t broke. “A yellowtail over 50 pounds is considered a once-in-a-lifetime
milestone,” noted Hoffman, who fears expanding MPAs in La Jolla will have negative consequences for fisherman and lobstermen, and will not produce the desired result: fish protection and repopulation of local species. “Closing areas to fishing will do little to benefit the biomass of our highly migratory fish species and cave-based species, such as lobster and abalone,” he said. While acknowledging that “reserves are important,” Hoffman nonetheless argued, “vast closures are not necessary and will lead to serious enforcement issues with the very limited budget of the Fish & Game.” But scientists and environmentalists, who pushed for expanding MPAs and creating new ones, do not share the perspective of Hoffman and others like him. They say regulations nearly doubling the size of no-fishing MPAs along Southern California’s coast, including a large section of La Jolla’s kelp beds, are essential to the sustainability — perhaps even survivability — of local fish species benefiting everyone long-term. “People who have lived in San Diego for more than 50 years and who have been in tune with the
On the Web The Department of Fish and Game has released a mobile-friendly website, dfg.ca.gov/m/MPA, to help fishermen, divers and others navigate the growing number of MPAs along the state’s coastline. It highlights protected areas by county on high-resolution satellite photos that can be magnified with a touch-screen button. It’s designed to work on smart phones, tablets, and other small digital devices.
coastal marine environment have noticed huge changes: the demise of abalone, the decrease in other formerly common species of invertebrates, the increasingly rare or restricted sightings of formerly common fish,” said Isabelle Kay, reserves manager and academic coordinator for UCSD Natural Reserve System. “The trajectory of much of California’s marine life is downward, in spite of attempts at species-by-species management.” While MPAs may not mitigate all of the issues threatening California’s oceans, Kay added, “they have been shown to help restore marine ecosystems on a local scale

tunities.” Kay noted that ocean users are expected to respect and observe the law expanding or setting aside new MPAs. For those who don’t, she said lifeguards and other law enforcement personnel are empowered to warn and, if necessary, cite violators.

Better Business Bureau lists red flags for a scam-free 2012 “There is no stronger remedy for fraud than an educated consumer who refuses to be conned,” said Sheryl Bilbrey, CEO of San Diego Better Business Bureau. “Rough economic times mean that consumer scams and rip-offs are at an all-time high as unscrupulous individuals and companies will roll-out every trick in the book (to steal your money).” Here are some danger signals for scams: 1) Read the fine print before you sign any agreement, fully understand it and make sure it matches what the salesperson told you. Get any promises in writing. Beware of any offer that sounds too good to be true, because it usually isn’t true. 2) Take time and investigate before you invest. Avoid easy-money schemes. Be wary if you hear “buy now or forever lose your opportunity to profit.” 3) Beware of any job offer, including work-at-home schemes or business
State offers reduction in late traffic ticket fees The California Legislature voted to offer drivers in 58 California counties—including San Diego—50 percent off certain outstanding traffic ticket fees that were due to be paid prior to Jan. 1, 2009. Drivers have until June 30, 2012 to receive the reduced amount on their traffic tickets. Parking tickets, driving under the influence (DUI) and reckless driving cases are not eligible. To be eligible, all of the following must apply: The driver either failed to appear in court or failed to pay in full. The last date the driver made a payment was on or before January 1, 2009. The driver does not owe restitution to a victim on any case in the county where the traffic case was filed. The driver has no outstanding misdemeanor or felony warrants in the county where the traffic case was filed. Other eligibility requirements may vary from county to county. Fees may be paid at local superior court offices. For more information, visit courts.ca.gov/find-my-courthtm.

“opportunities,” that offer big money for little work and no experience. 4) Prevent identity theft by protecting your personal information, including Social Security and credit-card numbers. Don’t share private information with strangers over the phone or e-mail. 5) Don’t believe the hype about a “guaranteed free prize.” If the sweepstakes promoter demands advance fees to cover shipping or to pre-pay taxes,
or asks you to call a 900 number, then it won’t be free. 6) Beware of “free” trial offers. After signing up for a “free” trial, you could end up with monthly charges that are hard to stop. 7) Avoid upfront fees, especially for advance-fee loans or debt relief to become free of debt (more likely, you’ll end up deeper in debt). 8) Scams have found a comfy home on the Internet, so don’t believe it just because you read it on a website. Obtain a company’s physical address and phone number and verify a business’ reliability with the BBB. 9) Ask questions before giving money to charities. Give, but give wisely. Beware of appeals that bring tears to the eyes but tell you little about how they plan to solve the problem they describe so well. Also, be cautious with sound-alike organizations using names that sound similar to legitimate groups.

SPOTLIGHT on LOCAL BUSINESS La Jolla’s Sweet Papers on move Local stationery boutique Sweet Paper has relocated to the Village Corner shopping center at the corner of Fay and Kline. “The space was just too perfect to pass up,” said Julie O’Brien, who co-owns the store with her sister Theresa Anderson. “We are lucky to have been very successful in our first year of business, which has enabled us to make this strategic move. We can still offer our customers parking, and we are closer to the heart of the Village, making a visit more convenient for many people. The response so far has been very positive.” In the last year, the girls have taken La Jolla as well as the stationery industry by storm. Their wedding invitation design work has been featured numerous times on industry blogs; and in August they won an award in the Bella Figura Annual Design Contest. “We have been overwhelmed at the industry’s response to Sweet Paper. We are grateful to be able to do what we love, and make people happy in the process,” Theresa said. Locally, Julie and Theresa have developed a strong following of La Jolla women in the know. Sweet Paper is the place to go for stationery, greeting cards and special gifts. Their wedding invitation and custom stationery offerings draw people from all corners
Theresa Anderson and Julie O’Brien of San Diego. The new space will maintain their signature bridal nook, comprised of a cozy bench and well-worn table. “The nook has become so much more than a place for brides,” said Julie. “It is the crux of our philosophy: Come in, get comfy, have a beverage, shop, visit and enjoy yourself!” The sisters have some surprises up their sleeves for 2012; the first among them is Champagne Saturdays. “Free champagne while you shop,” said Theresa. “Who wouldn’t love that?” A strategy, no doubt, designed to lure many a passerby, and all those folks waiting for their Saturday morning table at The Cottage. Sweet Paper can now be found at 7660-A Fay Avenue, and online at www.sweet-paper.com.
Marrokal Design & Remodeling puts its customers first Whether breathing new life into a kitchen or an entire home, people are the number one priority at Marrokal Design & Remodeling. “The best marketing I can do today is how I treat my current clients,” said company president Gary Marrokal, who founded his business in 1981. The company has received numerous awards, including 2010 Remodeler of the Year from Professional Remodeler magazine and the Better Business Bureau’s Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics, which it received three times, most recently in 2011. “Design awards are great, but when someone sends a letter saying that we exceeded their expectations, that to me is the biggest award,” he said. The design-build process at Marrokal Design & Remodeling begins and ends with communication, which is crucial to keep a project on schedule and on budget. Weekly meetings are held to discuss the status of each project, during both the design and construction phases. Marrokal’s recently expanded, 4,100-square foot design center includes a
top-tier staff of ASID-certified interior designers, design consultants and project managers. At the center, located at 9474 Kearny Villa Road, homeowners can peruse a large selection of materials, including custom kitchen cabinetry, tile, countertops, lighting, flooring and other de- Gary sign flourishes.

Rousing Retreat: Rotarians seek applicants for annual youth leadership conference By Pat Sherman Each year as many as 300 high school juniors from across the county ascend to the quiescent mountain town of Idyllwild to receive a mountain of inspiration and empowerment. During the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards conference, April 20-22, teens (including 14 from La Jolla) will take part in exercises geared to instill leadership and team-building skills. The weekend includes speakers from leading corporations, as well as the sports and entertainment industry. “I’ve been involved in a lot of corporate leadership type of events in my professional career and I’ve never had anything that’s even remotely close to this in terms of how fun and inspiring it is,” said La Jolla Rotary Club member Cal Mann, a marketing consultant and advisor to Rotary’s student Interact Clubs at La Jolla High School and the Bishop’s School. “There’s a lot of getting kids outside their comfort zone and putting them in circumstances they’re maybe not used to and kind of learning how they react to it,” Mann said. “It’s particularly good for kids who are coming to the end of their junior year. They’re really starting to look squarely at adulthood and get a bit of a vision for their own life.” Mann said he expects anywhere from 35 to 45 La Jolla students to apply, though
Previous ryLa participants show their team spirit. COURTESY
On the Web ■ To learn more about the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards conference or to apply online, visit rylaconference.com only 14 will be selected to attend the conference. To apply, students must maintain a grade point average of no less than 2.5, fill out an online application, write a leadership essay, and interview with Rotary members. Of the 300 students who attend the conference, 10 are offered a chance to return as seniors, serving as alumni organizers. This year, two students from La Jolla High will be returning to help with the conference. “The alumni group helps organize a lot of the activities and events for the coming year’s conference,” Mann said. “Starting in January, they commit to four or five hours of meeting time per week. It’s a pretty big
commitment, and a pretty select group of kids.” La Jolla High School Senior Nicole Miller will be among that select group. “After the three-day camp I knew I have what it takes to be a leader,” said Nicole, 17. “It was an eye-opening experience. You’re able to sympathize with people and see yourself in a whole new light.” La Jolla Interact Club members — among more than 250,000 worldwide — are involved in community service projects throughout the year. Most recently, La Jolla Interact members helped amass 2,700 pounds of food to be distributed to North County families in need. In November, Interact students, parents and Rotarians spent the day in Tijuana helping build a small home for a family of eight. “They get to see in a firsthand way the real face of poverty,” Mann said. “It helps them understand that other people living close by have real challenges just having food, something that many of them just take for granted.”

Graying of America requires seniors stay healthy, employed GUEST OPINION By Paul Downey CEO, Senior Community Centers Last month, the U.S. Census Bureau released statistics that give us a snapshot of what America's senior population looks like. And it's a warning for us all. The graying of America is like a tsunami something big is coming our way. The wave of Baby Boomers crashing onto our shores over the next 20 years will challenge us in ways not seen in our history. Couple this with the ongoing state and federal cuts to senior services, and the fact that seniors are struggling to make ends meet, and we have one heck of a storm and subsequent messy aftermath to clean up. By 2035, 1 in 4 Americans will be age 65 or older. But the rapid growth has already begun to occur. According to the Census, the U.S. senior population increased by 15.1 percent, while the population in general only increased by 9.7 percent.
San Diego County also saw a 15 percent increase in the senior population in the last decade. Our region is home to 351,425 residents age 65 and older in 2010, which represents 11.4 percent of the county’s total population, according to the Census Bureau. Today, 1 in 10 residents is age 65 or older. The news doesn’t stop there. The Census report also shows a 48 percent increase in people age 85 and older. This particular segment of the senior population has doubled or tripled in some cities in the last decade. And the rapid growth will continue, as the nation’s Baby Boomers turn age 65 and begin to live longer lives. Currently in San Diego, 2 out of 5 seniors lack adequate resources to meet their basic needs and struggle to live day by day. This storm could have damaging effects on everything from our infrastruc-

Meals on Wheels needs your help In this first week of 2012, I want to thank all of our caring contributors who, through their philanthropic donations this past year, have continued to fuel the autonomous Greater La Jolla Meals On Wheels engine. You allow us to keep rolling along as we enter our 38th year of service to La Jolla by providing tasty, healthy
ture, housing, health care, employment; our whole economy could be devastated. It’s time for state and federal governments to wake up and prepare for this storm with proper aging policy and infrastructure. If they had doubts about the surge of seniors before, these new Census numbers tell us what is going to happen. The numbers are real. Here’s what’s brewing: n Baby Boomers on average have had fewer children and have fewer resources and family members to support them. These seniors will rely on government support, such as housing and long-term care services. Medicare may be the biggest issue, as the current system won't handle the influx of seniors who need aid. n With tens of thousands of Boomers hitting the traditional retirement age of 65, we will begin losing vital members of our work-
and nutritious meals to isolated homebound seniors as well as disabled or mobility challenged people of all ages. Our appreciation runs even deeper this year because we know of the ongoing economic hardships felt by most everyone — both on the giving end (that’s you) and on the receiving end (our physically and fiscally challenged clients). We’re subsidizing more deliveries than ever before. If you haven’t already wrapped and delivered your charitable giving gifts for 2011 and you really want to see your contribution directly and humanely at work in your own neighborhoods,
force. As a result, employers will be forced to offer incentives, such as job sharing, bonuses, working from home, etc., to seniors to continue working. If seniors do not continue to work, we will not have enough people to sustain our economy. n Loss of workforce is a loss of Social Security taxes, resulting in a shrinking amount of money dedicated to seniors. This will continue until there are more people working than retired. It's a simple arithmetic problem. There are ways to ease the coming strain. Medicare will need to be remodeled to be more efficient and more HMO-like. The system will need to focus more on wellness and staying healthy before seniors become sick. This is why non-profit organizations like Senior Community Centers are crucial to communities as they provide nutrition and wellness services for people to remain independent. The public's support is needed now more than ever to continue services today and prepare for seniors of the future.

Seal protection skepticism Seal Activist Attorney Bryan Pease and his actions of calling the press to come to the Children’s Pool in La Jolla to lie to the media and the public is environmental fraud. It is about fabricating some story about having some seal rescue or guardian program so his organization, the Animal Protection and Rescue League, can ask the public for money. Environmental fraud on the citizens of San Diego and the City of San Diego itself is done by several organizations and environmental attorneys. The media must realize that the stories of people causing problems for seals at the Children’s Pool is fabrication and environmental fraud for financial gain only. John Smith firstname.lastname@example.org
Seal tags tell a tale In a recent edition of the La Jolla Light, there was an Editor’s Note indicating an effort to “put the seal-dumping issue to rest.” If that is truly what is desired, instead of asking David Koontz, a communications employee, about the seal dumping issue, please ask SeaWorld to publish the maps they possess that show exactly where they have released each pinniped. I have seen such maps, I know they exist. I have lived in La Jolla for 16 years. In the 1990s on any given day 20-30 percent of the seals hauling out at the Children’s Pool had either a red or orange tag affixed to their tails. The tags do wear off over time, but even today you can find tagged seals at the Children’s Pool. In the court case against the city requesting
that the seal pollution problem be fixed by forcing the city to honor the Ellen Browning Scripps trust, which was won and upheld by the 9th circuit court of appeals, a representative for SeaWorld testified to the fact that seals were dumped near the Children’s Pool. Get the facts from the scientists at SeaWorld. Not the political spin. Roger Boyce la Jolla

Support rowing club Rowing will be on land at Balboa Park just steps outside of the Hall of Champions from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Jan. 14, when The San Diego Rowing Club hosts its first annual Erga-thon. This lively and hard-core event is a tradition among rowing clubs across the country to raise funds for new equipment and facilities. SDRC serves 100 young men and women from some 40 high schools in the area. These dedicated rowers will row more than 100,000 meters on stationary ergometers to compete with their teammates to see who can reach that designated meter mark. While the music rocks and the athletes vigorously work the machines to compete for the best time, crew-racing boats will be on display and crew members and coaches will be available to discuss this mentally and physically engaging sports program. The Erg-a-thon will generate much-needed revenue for new equipment as the program continues to build. For more information, visit www.sandiegorowing.org.

An Hour A Day Keeps Weight Gain At Bay Recent research from Harvard Medical School forces women to face a sobering reality about agerelated weight gain. The study looked at more than 34,000 nondieting, middle-aged women over a 13-year period and found that at least an hour of moderate daily activity is required to keep nondieting, non-overweight women at a healthy weight. These findings also back up a 2002 Institute of Medicine report. Adults with physical limitations and/or health concerns are strongly urged to work with a physical therapist to get their bodies moving. The therapists at Ability Rehab specialize in evaluating and treating orthopedic, gait, neurologic and balance problems. If you are experiencing difficulties in any of the above, achieving the recommended daily activity is going to be difficult. Whether you are facing a specific problem or just want to increase your activity and health in a safe, educational environment, we can help. Our therapists perform a thorough evaluation followed by expert rehab and training on the specific needs of each individual. P.S. Gaining weight with age may have less to do with a slowing metabolism than the natural tendency to become more sedentary. Call Ability Rehab to schedule a full evaluation or fitness screening today!

Chargers season ends with 8-8 record, no playoffs The San Diego Chargers’ season came to an end Sunday with a 38-26 win over the Oakland Raiders. The win put the Chargers at 8-8 on the season, but for the second straight season, will miss the playoffs. The win, however, knocked Oakland out of the playoffs, and allowed the Denver Broncos to secure the AFC West title.
San Diego State back in both polls; 12-2 on season The San Diego State men’s basketball team is ranked in both major polls for the first time since the end of last season. The Aztecs, 12-2 overall, are ranked No. 24 in the Associated Press Top 25 poll and No. 25 in the ESPN/USA Today coaches’ poll. The Aztecs will play San Diego Christian tonight at 7 p.m. at Viejas Arena.
UC-San Diego women’s basketball still perfect The UCSD women’s basketball team remained perfect on the season as they beat San Francisco State last week. The win improved the No. 4-ranked Tritons to 11-0 on the season. Up next for the Tritons is a clash with Cal Poly Pomona at 5:30 p.m. on Friday.

Mike Meza tied a career-high with 19 points and Christian Hatch finished with 12 to lead the UC San Diego men’s basketball team to a 72-50 win over visiting San Francisco State last week at RIMAC Arena. With the win, UCSD evens its season record at 5-5 and improves to 1-4 in California Collegiate Athletic Association play. The Tritons will look to carry the momentum from Thursday’s performance into their matchup with undefeated Cal Poly Pomona on Friday. “We played extremely well tonight and that was very encouraging considering the layoff we had,” head coach Chris Carlson said. “We’ve been playing better basketball the last couple of weeks, we just haven’t been able to pull out the victories like we needed to. Tonight was definitely a step in the right direction and we’ll take it.”
Texas tops Cal in San Diego’s Holiday Bowl The Holiday Bowl came to a conclusion at Qualcomm Stadium last week with Texas topping California, 21-10. The game was played in front of more than 56,000 college football fans. Depsite Cal jumping out to an early 3-0
lead, and evetually taking a 10-7 lead in the third quarter, No. 24-ranked Texas came out ahead thanks to a 4-yard TD run by Cody Johnson to take a 21-10 advantage in the final quarter. With the win, Texas finished the season with an 8-5 record, while Cal ended its season at 7-6.
Oregon gets first Rose Bowl win since 1917 Darron Thomas threw three touchdown passes, including the go-ahead score early in the fourth quarter, as Oregon defeated Wisconsin, 45-38, in a record-filled 98th Rose Bowl Game today. Thomas’ 11-yard touchdown pass to Lavasier Tuinei on the third play of the fourth quarter gave the Pacific-12 Conference champion Ducks a 42-38 lead they never relinquished. Oregon, 12-2, increased its lead to 45-38 on Alejandro Maldonado’s 30- yard field goal with six minutes, 50 seconds to play. Big Ten Conference champion Wisconsin, 11-3, had the ball twice more after Maldonado’s field goal. The first possession ended when Oregon linebacker Michael Clay recovered receiver Jared Abbrederis’ fumble at the Ducks’ 27-yard line with 4:06 remaining. The Badgers got the ball back on their own 13-yard line with 16 seconds left. Quarterback Russell Wilson completed a 29-yard pass to Abbrederis and a 33-pass to Nick Toon put the ball on the Ducks’ 25-yard line with two seconds left, but Wisconsin was unable to get another play off.

n La Jolla Playhouse La Jolla Playhouse kicks off its 2012-2013 season in the driver’s seat with “The Car Plays: San Diego,” a series of 10-minute plays performed inside automobiles, Feb. 23March 4. Held in the playhouse parking lot, twoperson audiences will move from vehicle to vehicle, watching as dramas and
comedies unfold around them. Also new for 2012 is a series of intimate cabaret performances in the Potiker Theatre, featuring three-night runs by outrageous comedienne and songstress Sandra Bernhard (March 14-17) and Chicago’s legendary Second City improvisational comedy troupe (March 21-24). “We’re going to convert the

New Opera season promises a feast for the eyes and ears By DaviD L. CODDOn The 2012 San Diego Opera season should be an eye-opener. General Director and Artistic Director Ian Campbell is counting on it. “This season I’m challenging the eyes in every case, in a good way,” said Campbell of the ambitious slate that kicks off Jan. 28 with Strauss’ “Salome,” followed by Jake Heggie’s “Moby-Dick” in February, Donizetti’s “Don Pasquale” and a concert by soprano Renee Fleming in March, and Rossini’s “The Barber of Seville” in April. “’Barber” is based on (surrealist artist Renee) Magritte,” said Campbell. “ ‘Don Pasquale’ is set in the Wild West.

FROM ARTS, B1 stuff this season.” The Playhouse’s regular stage season kicks off Jan. 27 with “American Night: The Ballad of Juan José,” Los Angeles-based Culture Clash’s politically-charged play about a man who falls asleep while studying for the history portion of his U.S. citizenship test. “The play is really his dream, which becomes this mash-up of American history, Mexican history, what it means to be an American and what it means to be a
man,” Rosenberg said. “It’s a lot of fun, but it will be controversial.” Also on deck for 2012 will be a musical adaptation of the 1997 documentary, “Hands on a Hard Body,” with music by Trey Anastasio of the band Phish, and from June 19 to July 15 the Playhouse will feature a creative adaptation of the Greek epic, “The Iliad.” The Playhouse maintains an annual budget of around $14 million through ticket sales, subscriptions, and individual and corporate
donations, Rosenberg said. In 2012, the organization will receive its third installment of a four-year, $900,000 grant. The Playhouse also receives $350,000 a year through the city’s transient occupancy tax on hotel rooms, and money from its annual gala fundraiser (to be held March 9 this year). • For more information, visit lajollaplayhouse.org n MCASD, La Jolla Following up on the most successful show in its histo-

ry, “Phenomenal: California Light, Space, Surface” (which ends Jan. 22), the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, La Jolla will feature a retrospective of prints by SDSU alumnus and National City native, John Baldessari. The world-renowned conceptual artist was featured in a one-person retrospective at the Metropolitan Museum in New York City last year. His “brain cloud” mural graces a wall above the La Jolla Cove off Prospect Street. “It’s great to have this famous son come back and show a good-size exhibition,” said the museum’s director and chief executive officer, Hugh Davies. MCASD La Jolla will follow with an exhibition by Latino artist John Valadez, which highlights the realist painter and muralist’s flair for capturing gritty, urban scenes with traditional mediums. “He works beautifully with pastel on paper, almost like an Old Master or an 18th century French artist,” Davies said. Rounding out MCASD La Jolla’s 2012 season will be “Behold America! Art of the United States.” The collaborative exhibition with the San Diego Museum of Art and the Timken Museum will showcase 300 years of American art from the collections of all three museums. The museum’s 492-seat
‘Money (with Space Between),’ a lithograph/ screen print by conceptual artist John Baldessari, is part of the artist’s exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, La Jolla from Feb. 5-May 3. Courtesy of MCAsD
Sherwood Auditorium will continue its concert and recital collaborations with the La Jolla Music Society. “We also do lectures and film screenings and work with a lot of other organizations to make the museum more of a cultural center, rather than just a museum,” Davies said. “It’s a big part of our programming.” The La Jolla branch of the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego shares a roughly $7.4 million annual operating budget with its downtown sister space, splitting a pool of about $800,000 for exhibitions. MCASD’s endowment generates about $2 million annually. The rest of the budget is funded by memberships, donations from MCASD La Jolla board of trustees and $350,000 in transient occupancy taxes from the city. September’s annual fundraising gala netted $440,000
for the organization. The museum’s biennial art auction and fundraiser will be May 30, with assistance from Christie’s auction house. • For more information, visit mcasd.org n Athenaeum Music & Arts Library La Jolla’s oldest cultural institution, the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library, will continue its lecture series, Write Out Loud, in which a theater troupe brings literature to life through dramatic readings. This year, the Athenaeum will feature 17 jazz concerts in its 160-seat music room on Wall Street and at the Neurosciences Institute, as well as six chamber concerts and 30 free mini-concerts in the Athenaeum’s music room and at Lyceum Theatre in downtown San Diego.

A performance by jazz vocalist Gretchen Parlato follows on Jan 20. As part of the Athenaeum’s four-part summer concert series, celebrated San Diego pianist Gustavo Romero returns in July to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the birth of Claude Debussy. The Athenaeum’s ongoing exhibitions, which showcase the works of local artists, will continue at three local galleries, including the Athenaeum’s University Heights-based School of the Arts, which just celebrated its 25th anniversary. “We have something going on almost every day,” said the Athenaeum’s executive director, Erika Torri. With an operating budget of about $1.5 million, The Athenaeum is one of only 16 remaining membership libraries in the country, housing roughly 17,000 artists books. “We’re quite a historic di-

During the past few months, the Athenaeum received two large donations to its 20-year-old endowment, including $536,000 from the estate of author and longtime Athenaeum member Alice Goldfarb Marquis. Other funds are received through membership dues, concerts, exhibitions, book sales and grants from the San Diego Commission for Arts and Culture.

n the heart of La Jolla Village sits a small, red-brick building that houses one of the area’s most popular coffee houses and bakeries, Brick & Bell Café. Colonial-style bells mounted on the inside and outside add to the charm of this neighborhood gathering place. On any given day, a steady line of customers extend out the door into the patio, where residents, students, seniors and working professionals meet for business, studying, socializing, or simply to grab a quick drink, meal or fresh-baked snack. Only a few small tables are inside, with umbrellacovered tables occupying most of Brick & Bell’s patio space. Free WiFi is offered. “We serve 1,000 guests a day and roasted 9,000 pounds of coffee beans in 2011,” owner Peter Schumacher said. While the line of customers waiting to order can extend to 20-30 people at peak times, the Brick & Bell staff works fast, knows frequent customers by name, and memorizes food-and-drink orders of its regulars to speed up service. As a testament to the friendly nature of its staff, Schumacher said four Brick & Bell employees got married in 2007 to customers they met while working there. Schumacher and his staff also have a sense of humor as evidenced by signs hanging above the order counter: “Unattended children will be given an espresso and a free puppy” and “Brick & Bell — 120,000 scones sold. 10,000 bad jokes told.” Brick & Bell’s draw is its coffee and freshbaked goods. “We really believe that we have the best coffee,” Schumacher said of its Kéan-brand specially prepared by Master

■ This Week: Brick & Bell Café’s Croutons Roaster Martin Diedrich. “Our coffee is roasted lighter. Coffee is getting over roasted — you taste too much of the roast and not enough of the coffee. Martin Dietrich is one of the pioneers in this country moving us to roasting a little less dark; you taste the coffee but not the burn.” Brick & Bell offers just one kind of coffee, under the Kéan Coffee brand, as its base for drinks like Americano, café au lait, caramel macchiato, latte, mocha, and espresso. “It appeals to those who like strong coffee and also those who like lighter coffee,” Schumacher said. Brick & Bell sells about 800-1,000 pieces of pastry each day, with scones as the top seller. To meet the daily demand for scones, Schumacher starts baking at 3:30 a.m. and opens for business at 4 a.m. on weekdays. “Our scones use a recipe from England; they’re very moist and very good,” he said. Large scones are about the size of one’s fist and mini scones are also available in various flavors: raspberry, chocolate chip, cranberry,
blueberry, apple cinnamon, raisin, maple walnut, and orange almond. Other pastries include croissants, cinnamon rolls, apple turnovers, Scottish shortbread, and cookies (chocolate chunk, oatmeal raisin, peanut butter, and seasonally decorated cookies). Among its basic breakfast items, Brick & Bell’s granola and açaí cups are very popular. The house granola is baked twice a day and made with Canadian maple syrup, canola oil, almonds, dried cranberries, and raisins for a sweet and crunchy combination. Açaí cups serve the South American fruit known for its antioxidant and health benefits with house granola, strawberry and banana slices. “We serve pure açaí and don’t mix in fillers,” Schumacher said. Lunchtime crowds also seek out the café’s sandwiches and salads. Sandwiches are served on a choice of breads, but the Italian ciabatta is most in demand. “Our ciabatta is very authentic; crusty on the outside and soft in the middle,” said Schumacher, who added the turkey and avocado sandwich is the top seller. He also suggests the Mediterranean sandwich with hummus, feta cheese, sundried tomato, onions, cucumbers, black olives, and sliced tomatoes. “It’s a vegetarian sandwich, but even meat eaters love it, and the spread is so delicious,” Schumacher said. Chicken Caesar is the most popular salad, especially when it is accompanied by Brick & Bell’s homemade croutons, which are made daily from cubed bagels and baked with olive oil, salt and lemon pepper. “People love the croutons and ask to buy it by the pound,” Schumacher said, even though it is not listed as a separate item for sale.

New exhibit mourns San Diego’s loss of natural spaces By Will BoWen “We don’t care what a frog thinks, or a bird ... but we should because we all live together in interconnected systems,” insists eco artist Ruth Wallen, whose exhibit, “Cascading Memorials: Responses to Urbanization and Climate Change in San Diego County,” will be on view Jan. 7 to Feb. 11 at the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library. Wallen, who grew up in Berkeley, Calif., is best known for her colorful photographic nature plaques at the Carmel Mountain Nature Preserve on the mesa top overlooking Carmel Valley. She said her love of nature dates back to age 8, when she circulated petitions to help protect the natural areas where she and other children played. Wallen earned a B.A. from

Wallen’s show at the Athenaeum will consist of photomurals and photo collages of San Diego natural areas that we are losing to population growth, climate change, and development. The exhibit will include images from Cuyamaca State Park, Pine Creek, Otay Mountain, Mission Gorge, and Carmel Mountain. In addition, she will display her books, titled “I Love Del Mar,” “Legends,” and “Preserving Paradise.” “I was motivated to put together this particular show because I’ve noticed how much San Diego County, and specifically Carmel Valley, has changed in the

to create a space for people to mourn and grieve the losses, but also offer their visions for the future. Visitors will have the opportunity to provide input by writing about their hopes and visions for San Diego on paper leaves that will be attached to large photographs of trees posted in the gallery.
It is Wallen’s hope that we will preserve more wild open spaces and start to build up instead of out. “The source of the problem can be traced to values,” she said. “Although there have been many good ideas put forth by environmentalists and planners, political necessity has not always lead to the best longrange choices. In other words, we have valued growth and economic prosperity over quality of life and protecting nature. “We must realize that there is so much richness out there in the San Diego wild and we need to think hard about how we will protect it for the future. There are more threatened and endangered species in San Diego than any other county in the whole of the continental United States.”

Nobody in the city knows a note of the music.” While Campbell characterizes the 2012 season as “relatively conservative,” he relishes the presentation of a work unfamiliar to San Diego audiences, like “MobyDick,” and he’s excited about stretching creatively when it

San Diego Opera general director and artistic director comes to the more traditional productions. The process is a careful one, however. “You can do almost anything with a comedy and nobody’s offended,” said Campbell. “’Don Pasquale’ is set in the Wild West, and it’s a hoot. If I do that with a classic, put it outside its period, it would be a disaster, because our audience cherishes the great classics so much. They hear with their eyes to a certain extent. We do have to retain some of those traditions.” The biblical story of “Salome,” adapted by Strauss from a play by Oscar Wilde, was last presented by San Diego Opera in 1998. The 2012 production, with sets and costumes by Bruno Schwengl and lighting by Chris Maravich, should make a visual impression on audiences.

North Coast Rep stages a telling historical drama By Diana Saenger In honor of its 30th anniversary season, North Coast Repertory Theatre will stage “The Lion in Winter,” one of the plays presented during its inaugural year. Directed by Andy Barnicle, who directed seven plays at NCRT, “The Lion in Winter,” by James Goldman, is a family drama of emotion, wit and great insight that uses the royalty of 12th century England to reveal universal human frailties. Goldman said he jumped at the chance to direct when NCRT Artistic Director David Ellenstein offered him the job. “I’ve wanted to get my hands on it ever since I saw it years ago on stage and as the movie,” Barnicle said. “These people have human needs and they react with anger and hurt and are clever in a contemporary way. The script is about language, rhetoric, characters, ideas, and is the kind of play that attracts a director — especially if we have good actors. And we certainly have that in this production.” The cast includes Mark
For the production, Marty Burnett created six scenes in Henry’s castle in France on north Coast rep’s intimate stage.

The script is basically the same as previously performed at the Rep, Barnicle said. “People might be familiar with it, especially because of the famous people who created the roles in the film. (Peter O’Toole as Henry II and Katharine Hepburn as Eleanor of Aquitaine) but I think enough time has gone
by that those memories have faded. Once the play begins, people will forget every thing but what they are watching. “The play is really good at squeaking exposition out along the way, but you have to pay attention. This is not a history lesson though, it’s much more of a family comedy/drama. The language and characters’ behaviors are very contemporary. The only things really historical are the things at stake like the future of England. It’s really about the relationship
between Henry and Eleanor and their children.” Production designer Marty Burnett created six scenes in Henry’s castle in France on the Rep’s intimate stage. “It is a challenge to stage a play of six or seven characters the way this one surrounds the audience,” Barnicle said. “The actors need to be able to move around and make adjustments to ensure they can be seen and heard all the time. It’s very helpful to have actors who have done it before and are familiar with that stage.”

Artist’s chic exhibit will take viewers on a world tour By Will BoWen The next best thing to spending 80 days in a hot air balloon circumnavigating the globe might be spending 80 minutes contemplating 80 paintings of destinations around the world. While the former may not be too probable, the latter is a definite possibility. Beginning Jan. 5, and continuing to Jan. 31, at The Lobby Art Gallery at The Poway Center for the Arts, 15490 Espola Road, the paintings of world traveler Cherry Sweig will provide a colorful virtual tour of some of the greatest sites on Earth. Sweig, a 1974 graduate of The Bishops School, has been working furiously to complete the 80 paintings for the show. This is not the first time
‘le Tour eiffel,’ oil, by Cherry Sweig
Sweig has painted in a fury. Once she painted 101 pictures in 101 days. Seven at a time were delivered each Saturday to the Chula Vista Nature Center, where they were sold by the gift shop, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the Nature Center. Each of Sweig’s 80 world paintings are based on a sketch or photograph of a place she visited in her many travels. About 55 of the paintings will be in oil, and the remaining 35 in watercolor. Sweig likes to paint in a bright and vibrant French impressionist style, with a plein-aire tinge. What’s unique about her work is her simple, brightly colorful, upbeat approach with a Walt Disney-animation overtone. Sweig grew up in cold Wisconsin. At age 13, her
Cherry Sweig painting at Giverny, France. courtesy parents enrolled her in The Bishops School, which had a boarding facility at the time. Their reason? Bishops was an excellent school, steeped in their Episcopalian faith, and they planned on moving out to La Jolla. While Sweig did not like to be sent away from her family, she now sees that it made her a very independent person.
After graduating from Bishops, Sweig went on to earn a BFA in graphic design from San Diego State University. After college, she went through several different careers, including designing video games for Sega and working on Internet advertising for Time Magazine in an office at the Union Tribune building in Mission Valley. For 15 years, she did Gyotaku art, a Japanese technique where a real fish is pressed to paper to make a print. Sweig says she is forever in debt to her mentor, Dr. Otto Mower, now 93, who taught art history at Bishops. Sweig said Mower inspired her with a passion for both art and travel — especially the desire to spend time in an artist’s shoes. For
instance, Mower took Sweig and other students to Italy to paint in Michelangelo’s actual lunchroom, where some of his original sketches still remain on the walls. Another of Sweig’s memorable experiences was being the rare person able to paint in Monet’s Garden in Giverny, France, after hours, when everyone had gone home. Since it was summer, she was able to paint in solitude, contemplating Monet’s experiences, until 10 or so at night, when the sun finally set. n Gallery Hours: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday-Friday; 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday n Reception: Noon to 2 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 15 n Contact: (858) 748-9494 n Web: cherrysweig.com; powaycenter.com

la Jolla hoMeS Slow growth for 2012 says investment firm Grubb & Ellis Company, a real estate services and investment firm, released its 2012 National Real Estate Forecast on Jan. 5, which predicts a year of slow but continued growth for all commercial real estate property sectors. “Although a variety of economic and political factors, including continued high unemployment, an upcoming U.S. presidential election and the unresolved European sovereign debt crisis weigh on the minds of real estate owners, users and investors, we anticipate gradual improvement in leasing markets and a boost in investment sales volume,” said Robert Bach, senior vice president, chief economist. “This is based on an assumption of GDP growth in the range of 2.0 to 2.5 percent in 2012, still below the economy’s long-term potential of around 3 percent, and an average of 125,000 net new payroll jobs per month.” Specifically, Grubb & Ellis expects property sectors to continue to move ahead in the following sequence, from bestperforming to worst-performing: multi housing, hospitality, industrial, retail and office. The multi housing sector was among the strongest performers in 2011. During the year, effective rental rates and occupancy rates increased, with only 38,000 units added to the market. Tough qualifying standards for prospective home buyers and the growth of the 18- to 34-year-old age group ensure that this sector will continue to be one of the most popular and sought-after commercial real estate investments in 2012. whether any of the foregoing is owned now or acquired later; all accessions, additions, replacements, and substitutions relating to any of the foregoing; all records of any kind relating to any of the foregoing; all proceeds relating to any of the foregoing (including insurance, general intangibles and account proceeds, with respect to any term used herein that is defined in either (i) Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code as in force in jurisdiction in which the security agreement was signed by the Debtor at the time it was signed, or (ii) Article 9 as in force at any relevant time in the jurisdiction in which the financing statement is filed, the meaning of ascribed thereto with respect to any particular item of property shall be under the more encompassing of the two definitions; All accessions, attachments, accessories, tools, parts, supplies, replacements of and additions to any of the collateral whether added now or later; All products and produce of any of the property; All accounts, general intangibles, instruments, rents, monies, payments, and all other rights, arising out of a sale, lease, consignment or other disposition of any of the property; All proceeds (including insurance proceeds) from the sale, destruction, loss, or other disposition of any of the property, and sums due from a third party who has damaged or destroyed the Collateral or from that party’s insurer, whether due to judgment, settlement or other process; All records and data relating to any of the property, whether in form of a writing, photograph, microfilm, microfiche, or electronic media, together with all of Grantor’s right, title and interest in and to all computer software required to utilize, create, maintain, and process any such records or data on electronic media; End of “Exhibit A” Beneficiary reserves the right to revoke its election as to some or all of said personal property and/or fixtures, or to add additional personal property and/or fixtures to the election
