La Jolla couple shares husband’s breast cancer story ■ Gala guests go
mining for a cure. B12
BY JUDEE SEDLER We have lived in La Jolla since 1987. This past January, my husband, Carl, found a lump in his right breast and immediately went to his doctor, Leila Rhodes, M.D. on La Jolla Blvd. She swiftly set up tests for him and in February he had a mastectomy of the right breast. Carl turned 85 years old on Oct. 12, and you’d never expect men to get this disease, plus a man at age, 84 at the time! Now, Carl is cancer free and didn’t require any radiation or che-
mo; he’s just on hormones for the next five years. Carl has had wonderful care by his surgeon, Dr. Cheryl Olson and his oncologist at Scripps, Dr. Sabina Wallach. Since there is such a low percentage of men affected by this disease, I thought La Jolla Light readers might want to hear about this. I felt the need to bring more attention to breast cancer, particularly when it hits home!

Washing for a reason
A harvest of fun at market
ity Councilwoman Sherri Lightner presents a proclamation that declared Oct. 23 La Jolla Open Aire Market Day. The market celebrated its 13th anniversary Sunday with an annual Harvest Festival, which included a cupcake walk, crafts for the kids, and a performance by the La Jolla Madrigals. On Lightner’s left, is Donna Scurio, president of the Friends of La Jolla Elementary foundation. On Lightner’s right is Sherry Ahern, the market’s founder, and Donna Tripi, the school’s principal. The children are all students at LJES.
ighth graders from Muirlands Middle School washed cars on Saturday to raise money for the East Coast Expedition scholarship fund. About 140 students will make the nine-day trek to visit Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington, D.C., this coming spring and every little bit helps to cover some of the cost for students who may need financial assistance. If you would like to contribute, donations can be made to Muirlands Middle School. They’ll be having another car wash in the new year. Pearl Preis Photos

Cluster Association wants meeting to discuss budget woes By Dave SchwaB email@example.com Drastic budget cuts will be required if the San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) is to stave off financial collapse. That was the sobering message delivered by SDUSD trustee Scott Barnett and Phil Stover, deputy superintendent of business, to the La Jolla Cluster Association (LJCA) serving La Jolla’s five public schools — La Jolla High, Muirlands Middle and Birdrock, La Jolla and Torrey Pines elementary schools — at an Oct. 19 meeting. “My No. 1 job right now is to save San Diego Unified School District as we know it, to prevent it from going into financial failure,” said Barnett, who represents SubDistrict C’s coastal schools. “All school sites — every classroom — across the district will be impacted in some form or another.” To argue his case, Barnett brought along a handout titled “The Sobering Realities of Continuing Deficits.”
showing district budget cuts paralleling state budget cuts for education that have slashed SDUSD’s general fund by $450 million and reduced staff 15 percent since 2008. Stover echoed Barnett’s comments saying 14 school campuses districtwide will be closed — though none in Sub-District C which includes the La Jolla Cluster — and services and programs for other schools will be combined or reapportioned. After the meeting, members of the Cluster’s executive board — 10 parents (2 from each school), 10 teachers (2 from each school) and five principals — who were present spoke out about the crisis.
Budgetary challenges detailed: • A best-case $60 million to worst-case $115 million budgetary shortfall for fiscal year 2012-13. • The threat of $30 million in mid-year cuts. • A tight timeline for making budget decisions: January for mid-year cuts; March 15 for certified staff. “This is truly an asteroid heading toward our school district that can no longer be ignored,” Barnett said reacting to statistics
Frustrated reaction La Jolla Elementary Principal Donna Tripi said she felt “overwhelmed” by the district’s presentation. “I just wish that the state of California would find other ways to fund education other than relying on tax bases and economic factors,” she said. “We need to find a stable way to support education so our young people have a future.” Tripi added her budget planning method during these recessionary times has been to try to keep cuts as far away from kids as pos-

Phil Stover (left) and Scott Barnett (right) clue La Jolla cluster association members in on the district’s bleak budget outlook. Dave Schwab photo sible. “You just brace yourselves for what the next thing is, and work together to plan for it,” she said. Muirlands parent Natascha Vossen said she was “confused” about the state’s policy of deferring mandated payments to schools. La Jolla Elementary parent Fran Shimp described the possibility of the district becoming insolvent and the state taking over as “good for no one,” adding the answer may lie in financial reform, “but any financial reform has to come with accountability reform,” she said.
Bird Rock Elementary parent Lisa Bonebrake said a larger communitywide meeting is needed to allow Barnett and other SDUSD members to make their case for the necessity of drastic, across-the-board district budget cuts. “They need to let people know more, deeper cuts are coming down next year,” she said. “People need to stay up-to-date on what the picture is.” To this end, Cluster members are planning a community-wide meeting at La Jolla High School at a date yet to be determined.

Back Pain Options Did you know that approximately 80% of people over the age of 30 will experience back pain at some point in their lives? Of those individuals, 30% will have recurring problems. At Ability Rehab, we specialize in treating back pain. If you have tried other remedies but have not yet relieved the pain, give physical therapy a try. The most common causes of back pain are improper lifting mechanics or lifting objects that are too heavy. Other possible culprits include poor posture, exercising improperly, driving for long periods of time, sleeping on a mattress that does not give proper support, being in poor physical shape and being overweight. A very small percentage of reported back pain is caused by actual damage to the spine. The good news is that physical therapy and exercise have been proven effective in the treatment and prevention of back pain. The physical therapists at Ability Rehab utilize the highest level of skills and technology available to eliminate back pain, prevent injury, increase function and improve posture. Our Healthy Back Program achieves superior outcomes for all spine conditions including neck pain, low back pain, sciatica, herniated discs, and more. P.S. We will be offering FREE back screenings all through the month of November. Call our office to schedule today!

La Jolla Community Planning Association and La Jolla Development Permit Review Committee, DuCharme considers herself doubly qualified to evaluate regulations and their impact. “I have to apply them, and see how they’re applied by others,” she said. Noting building regulations can be both good and bad, DuCharme added that the real litmus test is “how well it works over time.” Primarily a residential architect, her award-winning work has been featured in publications locally and nationally. The Jewel’s architectural diversity is distinguishing, said DuCharme, because the older neighborhoods feature a plethora of housing styles; more modern subdivisions are homogenous.
“If you dictate (style) too much, then you don’t get the variety, charm and serendipity, the nice surprises where you see a craftsmanstyle home, then turn a corner and see a midcentury or a modern home,” she said. The trick, said DuCharme, is to strike the proper balance where unity combines with diversity to produce a look that is different, but not chaotic. DuCharme said her architecture doesn’t have a “signature style.” She designs “for what the clients are looking for and how it fits into the neighborhood.” The final speaker will be James Alcorn, who will discuss saving historical buildings and giving them new life on Dec. 15.

National Institutes of Health grant will fund Salk neuroscience center The Salk Institute has received a $4.5 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to establish a Neuroscience Core Center, a new research center intended to accelerate brain research that lays the foundation for developing new ways to treat congenital brain defects and neurological diseases. It is one of three new centers established this year to work on basic brain research. The funds will be used over five years to provide access to new technology and expertise for the Salk faculty, more than half of whom
are engaged in neuroscience research. Dennis O’Leary, the Vincent J. Coates Professor of Molecular Neurobiology at Salk, will serve as director of the new center, which will provide research support in genome manipulation, imaging and behavioral studies. “Under Dennis O’Leary’s leadership this new center will speed discovery of how genetic changes alter abilities such as motor function, learning and memory,” Salk Institute President William R. Brody said in a press release.

A Southern California symbol — the fan palm Although the redwoods (Sequoia spp.) were declared the official California State Tree in 1937, it could be said that Southern California has its own symbolic By Kelly Stewart tree — the fan palm. Two fan palm species within the Washingtonia genus are routinely associated with California, and visions of blue skies with towering skinny palm trees lining sunny streets make many people think of our state. Fan palms are native to our area (really one of the only indigenous palm trees that we have in the U.S.) and are popular landscaping trees. We have Mexican fan palms (Washingtonia robusta) and California fan palms (Washingtonia filifera) growing throughout our neighborhood and the two are closely related and similar in appearance. Both fan palms grow very tall, with some soaring to more than 100 feet, and they have fruit that is edible. The California fan palm has a more robust trunk, white flowers and filaments between the leaflets (filifera means thread-bearing) while the Mexican fan palm is taller, has orangey-pink flowers and is more common near

By Dave SchwaB firstname.lastname@example.org A conservative legal group last week filed an emergency motion in an effort to stop removal or alterations to the Mount Soledad cross until the matter can be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court. On Oct. 20, on behalf of the Mt. Soledad Memorial Association, the Texasbased conservative Christian advocacy and legal defense group Liberty Institute stepped in. Their move came after the Ninth Circuit Court majority voted not to grant a rehearing of the ruling by a three-judge panel opposing the federal government’s ownership of the cross. In January, the three judges found the Defense Department’s maintenance of the cross constitutes an unconstitutional governmental endorsement of religion. “We won this last round,” said Jim McElroy, the attorney representing the late Philip Paulson, a Vietnam War veteran who, in 1989, sued the city of San Diego over the cross. Paulson contended the cross’s existence excludes non-Christian veterans while violating the Constitutional separation of church and state. But McElroy conceded the Court of Appeals’ latest decision does little to alter the status quo. “It was a nice victory, but it doesn’t change anything,” he said. “There is only one remaining legal option — to ask the U.S. Supreme Court to hear it.”
Attorney Charles Berwanger, representing the Mt. Soledad Memorial Association, the La Jolla veterans group which built the cross as a Korean War memorial in 1954, said following lat week’s action “the federal court did not order removal of the cross, but it did remand the matter back to the trial court to take further action.” He added that they plan to “ask the U.S. Supreme Court for a stay of the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals’ decision pending their review of our writ of certiorari (appeal to review the lower court’s ruling).” In 2006, Congress passed legislation authorizing the federal government to acquire the Mount Soledad land on which the 29-foot cross sits by eminent domain. Two years ago, U.S. District Judge Larry Burns upheld that law, but the appellate panel disagreed. Noting 95 percent of such appeals to the U.S. Supreme Court are denied, McElroy said, “This case does have a long and interesting history.” Noting the U.S. Supreme Court of late has been weighing in more often on issues relating to separation of church and state, McElroy said, “There’s maybe a 10 or 15 percent chance the U.S. Supreme Court will take it.” However, McElroy pointed out the process involved in the nation’s top court deciding whether to hear the Soledad cross appeal could take months — or years.

From breast cancer, a1 Question: When were you diagnosed? Answer: The middle of January 2011, I felt a lump in my right breast and mentioned it to my wife, Judee. She urged me to see my primary doctor, which I did on Jan. 26. Dr. Rhodes sent me to Scripps for more tests and on Feb. 8 we received the diagnosis that it was cancer. What a shock to us — me with breast cancer? I’m 84 years old, and have breast cancer? When my wife originally called Scripps for the biopsy, they thought she was calling by mistake because the appointment was for a man, and she was transferred to another department for the test. She was persistent and said it was for me and I might have breast cancer, so they set the appointment for the biopsy. The diagnosis was stage 2, receptor positive cancer, (3.7 cm mass removed.) I’ve since turned 85 on Oct. 12. Q: What type of treatment did you receive? A: I received a mastectomy on Feb. 15, 2011 on my right breast, and two lymph nodes were removed to see if the cancer had spread, and it hadn’t! I continue to see both the surgeon and oncologist and they say I’m doing great. I did not require any chemo or radiation, but I’m taking estrogen therapy for five years. I have also had a mammogram for the left breast to be sure that cancer hasn’t affected the left breast. I have on-going visits with my surgeon and oncologist to check my progress. Q: Was there any one person/thing/routine that served as your rock during this time? If so, please describe. A: Yes, my wife, Judee. She was there with me and for me every step of the way. She was adamant that I needed to see the primary doctor pronto to see what’s going on, then scheduling my appointments, going with me, being there for my surgery, taking notes on follow-up appointments for us, and being my “nurse” at home. She made sure I followed the routine set for me by my doctors to help with my recovery. I would call her “Nurse Ratched,” but I appreciated her help! We’ve been married almost 37 years and I know that she was there for me. I was back on the golf course by March 18 chipping and putting, and then soon back to my old routine of four days a week at the club. We are members at San Diego Country Club. Q: How did this diagnosis impact your finances? Did you have any insurance struggles?

John R. Schenck - President · Wesley W. Schenck 1866-1946 J. Ray Schenck 1896-1973 · Robert M. Schenck 1918-1999
A: I have good medical insurance through Blue Cross as well as Medicare. No, the insurance was wonderful and no impact on us at all. Q: Did this diagnosis impact your work? If so, how? A: Since I’ve been retired since 1985, the only effect was not being able to golf for that month. I was back chipping and putting and I’m now on the course full time. Q: Is there anything about this experience you want people to know, that they may not know or is not commonly known? A: Since breast cancer in men is at a low percentage, and not highly publicized like it is for women, my advice to men is to listen to your body, and intuition, and if you feel something strange, like the lump I found, get it checked out! Awareness of breast cancer for men needs more publicity. Everything you read is about women. Editor’s note: Judee has since joined up with Susan G. Komen, and she and Terri Davis chaired a Rally for the Cure at the San Diego Country Club on Oct. 18 to raise not only funds for
cancer research but awareness to men being afflicted by this disease. Fourty-four women played in the tournament wearing their pink! “We raffled off more than 40 prizes (pictured above), sold mulligans and miracle putts, and, of course, accepted checks from anyone who wanted to donate to the cause! “ she said.

Attorney wants city to pay him for fireworks suit By Dave SchwaB email@example.com Environmental attorney Marco Gonzalez is seeking $756,132 in reimbursement from the city for court fees incurred in lawsuits over permitting and environmental regulations for Fourth of July fireworks displays. “Attorney fees total $350,000 and we asked for a multiplier, which is routinely granted in cases like this, for work we’ve been doing since June 2010,” said Livia Borak, an associate at Coast Law Group. The firm sued the city and nonprofit La Jolla Community Fireworks Foundation, conMarco tending the city inappropriGonzalez ately issued a permit for the Foundation’s annual July 4 fireworks at La Jolla Cove. “Those fees are not inflated,” said Borak. “These are the hours we actually spent litigating this case.” Borak said the mission of the nonprofit Coastal Environmental Rights Foundation (CERF) the firm represents is to “broaden coastal access for everyone and protect water quality.”
Sometimes, she added, litigation is a tool to accomplish that end. “We took this case on contingency, and if we had lost, we wouldn’t have seen a dime,” said Borak. “But we won. That’s the only reason why we’re able to ask for attorney’s fees.” Coast Law also contends its legal action challenging the city’s existing permitting and environmental regulations for hosting fireworks displays over water constitutes a public benefit. “We brought to light that the city was unlawfully permitting (fireworks) events every year without doing environmental review,” she said adding, “There’s no reason why taxpayers should be paying for private-entity fireworks.” Deputy City Attorney Glenn Spitzer said the city would contest the fee request and disputed the environmental law group’s contentions that their side prevailed and that the case benefited the public. “This is still a live dispute in that the court of appeal will have the final say on the issue of prevailing party,” Spitzer said. “The city will argue that Marco did not accomplish his primary goal of shutting down the La Jolla Cove firework show. He did not confer a significant benefit on the general public, and
Vaporizers – Not Just For Marijuana Anymore A La Jolla start up company has reinvented the vaporizer to provide relief from common ailments, such as pain, anxiety, insomnia, and asthma. Clovershield, Inc. has developed a state-of-the-art device while working with clinical herbalists to introduce organic, all-natural herbal blends as viable options to pharmaceuticals. Vaporization delivers the herbal medicine to the pulmonary system and into the bloodstream safely and instantly for immediate results, without harmful side effects.
his fees are unreasonable.” A court hearing on Coast Law Group’s bill to the has been set for 1:30 p.m. Nov. 18 in Judge Linda Quinn’s courtroom, Department 74. Quinn, who issued the ruling favoring Gonzalez’s initial lawsuit stayed her order last spring to give city officials time to determine how they would comply. Gonzalez has contended fireworks harm sea life in the Cove, which lies within the protected San Diego La Jolla Underwater Park Ecological Reserve. They ultimately are seeking more extensive environmental review — at much greater cost — in the permitting process to fireworks events over water. In August 2011, the City Council voted 7-1 to appeal a Superior Court ruling that the Parks and Recreation Department must follow state environmental guidelines when issuing permits for fireworks shows. Fireworks organizers claimed following state guidelines would be prohibitively expensive and put them out of business. The city argued those changes would severely increase staff workload. Noting the court ruled the park-use permit to host a fireworks display is discretionary
and therefore subject to environmental review, Spitzer replied that the city has always treated this permit as a ministerial permit (meaning the city is without discretion in issuing it). Such permits are not subject to environmental review, he said. “To rectify the issue, City Council voted in favor of park-use permitting amendments on Oct. 11 intended to ensure the process remains ministerial,” he said. Spitzer added the city has also always maintained that stand- alone firework shows (those not involving food and alcohol) do not require a special event permit, a point CERF attorney Marco Gonzalez has challenged. “The city passed an amendment to the Special Event Ordinance on May 24, 2011, that clearly exempted standalone firework shows from the ordinance,” Spitzer said. “Therefore, stand-alone firework shows now clearly do not require a special event permit, which is a discretionary permit and potentially subject to environmental review.” Gonzalez has challenged the May 24 amendments in a separate lawsuit.
Bentley looks pretty in pink Symbolic Motors will unveil this one-of-a-kind 2012 ‘Passion Pink’ Bentley continental GT coupe on Oct. 28 at the w San Diego hotel. a portion of proceeds from its sale will benefit Susan G. Komen for the cure. The event will also feature beer samples from Green Flash Brewing company, owned by Bird Rock’s Lisa hinkley who is a breast cancer survivor.
“Designing the Herbalizer device was easy,” quotes CEO and Founder Josh Young, a Bird Rock resident and former NASA engineer and as for funding the project he says “We have had a lot of interest from VC’s, but we are much more interested in finding Angel Investors.” Pilot testing and focus groups underway have proven results for asthma relief and sleeplessness, taking effect not in minutes or hours, but in seconds. The success makes vaportherapy a serious consumer option in the $15 billion annual alternative medicine market in the United States.

Parks department applies for year-round seal rope
“Children’s Pool is historic tideland trust lands and those can’t be delegated to local government so it remains with the commission,” said Lee McEachern, district regulatory supervisor for the San Diego Coastal Commission’s District Office. The issue will be considered a public hearing at the Coastal Commission the next time it meets in Southern California, likely in January, McEachern said. “We’ll be doing our own independent review and analysis,” he added. More online at lajollalight.com
The city’s Park & Recreation Department has submitted a new application for a year-round barrier separating people from seals at La Jolla’s Children’s Pool. The city Planning Commission had previously rejected the year-round barrier, but it has since been determined that the beach falls within the purview of the California Coastal Commission.
Bookkeeper’s case delayed By Dave SchwaB firstname.lastname@example.org A preliminary hearing for a Loma Portal woman who pleaded not guilty to stealing more than $3 million from Jack’s La Jolla where she worked as a bookkeeper has been rescheduled for Dec. 6. Tara Virginia Moore, 39, faces more than 10 years in prison if convicted of grand theft and embezzlement. Bill Mitchell, deputy district attorney, said Moore’s preliminary hearing, originally set for Nov. 10, was postponed to allow time to sort through evidence. “There is a lot of discovery (evidence sharing) going on and we’re still in the process of getting in boxes and boxes — eight so far — full of records that provide the basis of the case,” Mitchell said. Paul Pfingst, Moore’s attorney and former San Diego County District Attorney, said the prosecution at the preliminary hearing would have to show “a reasonable suspicion” that a crime has taken place, in order for the judge to order a trial. Should a trial be ordered, Pfingst said it would likely start in
mid-2012, as both attorneys in the case have other trial commitments that will likely impact scheduling. Moore — who filed for bankruptcy in 2009 — was identified as a suspect in the case during a year-long investigation into extensive monetary losses at Jack’s La Jolla, a high-end, restaurantbar that closed in August 2009. Moore worked for the Girard Avenue nightclub for about four years, beginning in 2005. The alleged fraud came to light when the owner of Jack’s, Bill Berkley, hired a forensic accountant to examine the restaurant’s financial records dating back to 2003. The matter was then turned over to police. Previously, Pfingst submitted statements from witnesses in court who said it was well-known that Moore was supporting Jack’s from life insurance proceeds she received after her husband died. Pfingst said Moore lost more than $2 million of her own money. Mitchell countered that the money Moore was “loaning” was actually money she had misappropriated from Jack’s. — City News Service contributed to this report.

SPOTLIGHT on LOCAL BUSINESS CJ Charles Jewelers builds on success Customer service and industry insight have been Vahid Moradi’s keys to success in the luxury watch and jewelry industry. “The best service wins the game,” said the president of CJ Charles Jewelers at 1135 Prospect St. in La Jolla. “I’m selfishly looking out for my clients.” Moradi started out with a small estate jewelry store and 25 years later it’s morphed into a 2,000-square-foot salon with 146 display cases. Fifteen years ago, Moradi made a crossroads decision to “explore the industry,” which led to discovering and championing the FlorenceVahid based Panerai brand, Moradi Since then, he said, it has become “the shooting star of all our brands.” “Nobody recognized it, nobody knew what it was,” he recalled. “We just grew it.” In November, CJ Charles plans to unveil the next stage in its evolution: an exclusive Panerai boutique, one of only four nationwide. This boutique will be unique, prom-
ised Moradi. “Right behind the showroom floor, we will have a state-of-the-art service facility that no other Panerai boutique will have,” he said. That means his master watchmaker, trained and certified by the Italian company, can work on the exquisite timepieces when otherwise they would have to be sent out of town. CJ Charles Jewelers offers some of the watch industry’s most distinguished brands, from A. Lange & Sohne, Audemars Piguet, Breitling, Bvlgari, Cartier and Omega Watches, to Jaeger-LeCoultre, Officine Paneria and Piaget. In addition to these fine Swiss watches, CJ Charles Jewelers offers many different styles of designer and estate jewelry, Baccarat Crystals, Montegrappa Writing Instruments, Cartier accessories and Underwood watch holders and winders. Moradi said Cartier, the gold standard in the industry, continues to be a big seller for him, especially with women. “Cartier has been an incredible partnership for us for many years,” he noted. For more information, call CJ Charles at (858) 454-5390 or visit www. cjcharles.com.

What’s All The Hype with Social Media? I’m sure you’ve seen “Like Us On Facebook, Follow Us On Twitter, Check-In On Foursquare” out and about in La, Jolla, CA. What does all this mean for La Jolla and businesses in general? It means more ways to connect to the consumer, which is YOU.The power of social media has, forever, changed our world. It hasn’t just helped our business, it has helped local towns and mom and pop stores, across the world, build their business back up from a distressed market.The consumer might visit your website once every year or so, but if they connect with you via social media, you now have the ability to speak to the consumer on a daily basis – that’s huge. I was once asked,“It sounds like I don’t need a website anymore.” My reply was definitely,“That’s NOT the case. As you’re probably well aware, all social networks change on a daily basis, however, you always have control over your website. The point of social media for businesses is to connect with the consumer and help drive traffic back to your website.

village merchants off on right foot, but step carefully our view As the La Jolla Village Merchants Association moves into its first full year of operation, the board deserve a pat on the back and a word of caution. They’ve set out an ambitious plan to tackle the ills of the Village business district — lack of maintenance over the past couple of years and continuing economic pressure — and to bring back the panache the commu-
nity has lost. As Phil Coller, the group’s president, said Tuesday, they have “flattened out” the organizational structure so that people can focus on finite issues. But that revised structure still includes three pages of assignments. That’s where our caution comes in: Focus on the most important first and don’t get carried away by trying to do too much too soon. A case in point was last week’s Gallery Wine Walk & Taste, which drew its smallest crowd ever and likely cost
the organization some money. We like what we’re hearing and seeing. New holiday lights were fired up at some stores Monday night — the first of what we hope will be many. A subcommittee is working on bringing music to the Village; another is organizing to attract new businesses. There’s a new La Jolla website in the works and a partnership formed with the Historical Society to get the merchants more involved in a bigger and better Concours D’Elegance (formerly the La Jolla Motor Car Classic).

Last January, Governor Brown proposed a budget that balanced budget cuts with new tax revenues to support public education. That bold proposal was dependent on a bipartisan compromise in the legislature that would have given voters the opportunity to decide if they wanted to support public education. With no Republican support for his balanced revenues and cuts approach, the governor was forced to sign a budget that was based on precarious revenue expectations. That budget included “trigger cuts” that could drastically cut education funding midyear if revenue projections in December fall below the revenue assumptions. For the first three months of this fiscal year, California is already more than $700 million below revenue projections. Should those projections fall more than $2 billion below the target, K-12 education could be cut by as much as $1.5 billion and San Diego Unified would be cut approximately $30 million midyear. Even without midyear cuts San Diego Unified is facing a deficit of approximately $60 million
for 2012-13. After four straight years of budget reductions, balancing next year’s budget will be more difficult than ever. It will necessitate more layoffs, class-size increases, and serious negotiations with employee groups about salary and benefit concessions that could mitigate the number of layoffs. To maintain the fiscal solvency of the district, we will need to enter these negotiations with a spirit of collaboration to reach a workable budget solution that can preserve the quality of education we provide to San Diego’s children. If the State pulls the trigger on midyear cuts, the district will have few viable options other than to use depleted reserves and one-time solutions. This quick fix will escalate the projected deficit for 2012/13 to an unmanageable level of over $100 million. Under that worst-case scenario, even with employee concessions and hundreds of teacher and support staff layoffs, a balanced budget will be very difficult to achieve, challenging the fiscal solvency of the district. The future of public education in California rests in the hands of the legislature and the Governor. Will they find an alternative to pulling the trigger, or will they give Californians an opportunity to vote on education funding, before it’s too late to save our schools?

The new school year is in full swing. Parents are back to rushing kids to and from school, helping with homework and juggling schedules.

We’re making progress on managed competition By Jerry sanders Mayor, City of San Diego
ing across the nation turns the idea of “parent engagement” upside down. The Parent Empowerment Law or “parent trigger” gives parents the ability to transform their failing schools. What’s the “parent trigger?” Much as the name implies, it’s a tool that parents can use to band together and turn around a failing school. If 51 percent of parents whose children attend a failing school sign a petition, they can force or “trigger” one of five school intervention models. Parents have a big responsibility in this new educational landscape that moves beyond
Recently, the San Diego City Council showed they’re serious about addressing San Diego’s longterm budget health when they voted to support putting Miramar Landfill operations out to bid through the city’s managed competition program. I applaud the City Council — specifically Councilmembers Sherri Lightner, Kevin Faulconer, Tony Young, Carl DeMaio and Lorie Zapf – for their common-sense vote to allow private companies to compete against city employees for work at the Miramar Landfill. This incentivizes city employees to find efficiencies wherever possible in order to be competitive against the private sector. In the end, the taxpayers win. I especially commend Councilmember Sherri Lightner, who once again demonstrated her independence and policy knowledge when she voted to approve the motion with key amendments that ensure continued stringent environmental standards. The bidding process we’re about to embark on could cut landfill operation costs by millions of dollars. For proof of this concept, we can look at the results of the first managed competition, which was for publishing and reprographic services to city departments. Earlier this year, city employees’ won the bid by whittling about $1 million a year off the cost of the service. These are funds that now can be used to put more police on the streets, staff fire engines, and improve service at parks and libraries. Managed competition builds on the hundreds of millions of dollars worth of savings on city services implemented during my administration, including streamlining and consolidating city departments; reducing budgeted vacant positions by more than 1,700 and redirecting those funds to other services; reforming retiree healthcare by making employees contribute toward the benefit;

But the biggest project, just mentioned in passing Tuesday, is supporting an effort that could reshape “The Dip” at Prospect Street into a new “heart” for La Jolla. It’s an exciting concept, but one that could easily overwhelm the group. So heed our caution please. The Village needs all the work you’re putting in — and more.

New ag-biotech company puts down roots in La Jolla PreSS releaSe Synthetic Genomics Inc. (SGI), a La Jollabased company using genomics technology to develop biofuels, biochemicals, and new bio-based food products, and Plenus, S.A. de C.V., a Mexico-based investing and management company with extensive experience in a variety of business areas including agribusiness, have formed Agradis. The new agricultural biotechnology company, with offices on North Torrey Pines Road and field research stations in the U.S. and Mexico, will focus on developing and commercializing products to sustainably improve crop production efficiency using new advances in genomics and plant breeding. Initially, Agradis will focus on producing superior crops through advances in genomics and developing crop protection and plant growth enhancing products using beneficial, plant-associated microorganisms. Agradis has also closed a $20 million Series A financing round which will be used to establish the company infrastructure and to support product development and commercialization. Agradis has an experienced management team that includes chief executive officer Alejandro Rodriguez, who has decades of experience in successfully commercializing agricultural products and advancing crop production technologies having worked at and with some of the top agri-
culture companies in the United States and Mexico. Tom Christensen, whose background melds agricultural product development, business development leadership and advanced farming technologies, will serve as president. “Building on the decades of breakthroughs in microbial and plant genomic sequencing and analysis, SGI was founded with the notion that these new insights could help us develop higher yielding and more environmentally sustainable crops,” said J. Craig Venter, Ph.D., co-founder and co-chairman of Agradis and chairman and CEO of SGI. “We also had a vision that these plants could be successfully developed as new feedstocks for biofuels. Through the formation of Agradis with Plenus we now have the potential to realize these goals.” Alfonso Romo is co-founder and cochairman of Agradis and chairman and CEO, Plenus, S.A. de C.V..
From mayor, a18 and other reform and efficiency measures. By the time I leave office in December 2012, we’ll have eliminated the city’s longstanding structural budget deficit, allowing the next mayor to start with a clean slate. With landfill operations now going out
to bid, we’re lining up the competitive bids for fleet services, street sweeping, street/ sidewalk maintenance and public utilities customer service — with more to come. We expect to be reporting many more financial success stories soon.

Cathedral too much for La Jolla in showdown By Rick LeBeau In a key match-up of Division III water polo rivals with implications for CIF seedings on the line, Cathedral Catholic squared off against La Jolla in their second match of the season last week. Playing at Coggan Family Aquatic Complex, the Vikings looked to avenge their earlier loss at the Dons’ home pool. The Vikings got off to a slow start, allowing Cody Smith to score for the Dons on their first possession of the game. Trailing by two late in the first quarter, the Vikings managed to convert a steal by Aaron Robbins and pulled within a goal, 2-1. Despite the play in goal of freshman Matt Allen, the Vikings were unable to get even. They fell behind at half, 4-1. Following the break, the Dons won the sprint and took possession of the ball. A quick steal and a pass up tank to a streaking TJ Pugmire led to a goal 20 seconds into the quarter and a momentum shift in favor of the Vikings. Moments later, Pugmire earned a penalty shot, which he converted to bring the Vikes back within
one, 4-3. TJ would score again just before the end of the quarter to narrow the gap to 5-4, but the Dons found an open shot in front of the cage with two-tenths of a second remaining in the quarter to deflate the charge by La Jolla. The fourth quarter got off to a rocky start for La Jolla, as the Dons capitalized on passing errors to convert two early goals and extend their lead to 8-4. The Vikings put together a mild rally late in the game with LJHS senior Dylan Hallman looks to make a pass against cathedral catholic. goals by Zach Nelson, Cole Rick Lebeau photos Martinez, and finally Brandon Flores with 6 seconds to go in the game. That made the final tally 9-7 in favor of Cathedral Catholic, solidifying their position as the third-ranked team in the county among Division III water polo powers. La Jolla will remain solidly at No. 4. Coronado and Bishops will battle for the top seed the rest of the season, after the Knights knocked off the top-ranked Islanders in Coronado in sudden death overtime Oct. 19.

SECTION B 10 QUESTIONS
Fond memories of La Jolla keep singer/songwriter Gary Jules coming home Gary Jules has had a long career recording and touring, and is finishing his first new album in three years with childhood friend Michael Andrews. It’s been a decade since they recorded Gary Jules Jules’ seminal album “Trading Snakeoil for Wolftickets,” and the song “Mad World.” Jules’ cover of Tears for Fears’ “Mad World” was No. 1 in the UK in 2003, nearly three years after it was recorded for the indie noir film “Donnie Darko,” with Andrews. After years of touring, Jules came home to California. After the birth of his first child, he left record companies behind, downsizing to a more sustainable music life that would better afford him time to be home with his family, who he moved to the mountains of North Carolina in 2006. “Falling Awake,” from his independently released self-titled album, appeared on two Billboard Top 100 charts in January 2007, a week after being featured in an episode of “Grey’s Anatomy.” In spring 2008, newly recorded Jules’ songs from the album “Bird,” began circulating online. Playwright Stephen Adly Guirgis and director Philip Seymour Hoffman used two of the songs, “Goodnight Billie” and “Bird/Little Greenie,” in an OffBroadway production of Guirgis’ “The Little Flower of East Orange.” A third unreleased Jules track, “The Old Days Are Gone,” found its way onto college radio stations across the country in the months before the 2008 presidential election in connection with candidate Barack Obama. “Same Old Wind” is due out in 2012. What first brought you to La Jolla? My parents. My mom and dad met at UC Berkeley in the ‘60s. Mom was from Bakersfield, dad from San Diego. I was born in Fresno (long story) and my folks moved us all to Eads Avenue in May 1969, when I was three months old. What makes this area special to you? I grew up in La Jolla. Went to Gillespie Cottage, La Jolla Country Day, LJ Elementary, Muirlands, LJHS, and Bishop’s. Learned to surf

Shiver me timbers! History professor debunks pirate myths at Geisel Library
UCSD history professor Mark G. Hanna WILL BOWEN BY WILL BOWEN he image of pirates presented by writers, such as Robert Lewis Stevenson and Daniel Defoe, is false,” claims Stanley Wahlens, UCSD Extension Division advisor and pirate aficionado. “Pirates like William Kidd were actually agents of the British government with a license to plunder Spanish ships.”
Wahlens, along with about 50 other individuals, mostly UCSD staff and faculty, came to listen to a scholarly and intriguing lecture by UCSD history professor Mark G. Hanna titled, “A Nest of Pirates: Piracy and the Formalization of the First British Empire,” held on Oct. 20 in the Seuss Room at the Geisel Library on campus. The lecture was given in
connection with the exhibit, “Unburying Treasure: Pyrates at Geisel,” which is located on the main floor of the library. Marlayna Christensen, Outreach Librarian at Geisel, who helped curate the exhibit with Hanna said, “The exhibit features songbooks, videos, records, books and a rogues gallery of different pirates. It reveals everything you might
want to know about pirate lifestyle and weaponry. It will be up through January 2012.” Hanna, who earned his Ph.D. from Harvard University, with a dissertation on the impact of pirates on Newport and Charlestown, Rhode Island from 1670-1730, said he was never particularly interested

FROM PIRATES, B1 in pirates growing up, and he never planned to make the study of pirates his lifelong avocation. His original interest was fatherhood in America, he explained, but as he was giving a talk on an American father named William Harris who had been captured by pirates, he noticed the audience was most fascinated and had the most questions about the part of his paper on pirates. These questions led him to go

According to Hanna, fictional writers and Hollywood have given us a misleading picture of pirates as swashbuckling social outcasts, outlaws, and enemies of mankind who remained that way their entire lives. “Many pirates eventually settled down to respectable lives,” he said. “And pirates were very different in different time
periods. The Johnny Depp portrayal of Captain Jack Sparrow would only be valid for the very short time period of 1713 to 1730.” Hanna found that many communities on the periphery of the English Empire supported pirates because pirates brought in money from the business of repairing their ships, and other resources, like slaves. English pirates captured the African slaves incarcerated

on Spanish vessels destined for the Caribbean and who were eventually brought to New England. Pirate James Brown married the daughter of a deputy governor and was selected for political office in New England, while pirate Thomas Cromwell was welcomed by John Winter the governor of Boston as a “God’s Send.” Captain Henry Morgan, whose image is depicted on Morgan Rum
bottles, was given permission to plunder the Spanish colonies and was knighted. He later bought a plantation in Jamaica and ended up executing other pirates! Some communities, like the Quakers in eastern Delaware, tolerated and protected pirates from prosecution because Red Sea pirates attacked ships owned by Muslims — a religion the Quakers thought a product of the Antichrist. The pirates who
walked freely in their midst were also a guarantee against further religious persecution by the British Crown. Hanna said documents reveal that when it comes to pirates, it’s hard to sort fact from fiction, but generalizations about them are wrong; pirates have gotten a bad rap, and ended up as everyone’s scapegoats, be it for their anti-capitalist lifestyle or flamboyant clothing or aberrant sexual norms.

‘Fresh’ is the word of the day at The Fish Market By Kelley Carlson atrons of The Fish Market restaurant in Solana Beach seem to be hooked on the fresh catch offered daily. Whether it’s in the retail market or in the dining area, there’s something for everyone — from species in season to locally caught varieties like swordfish. Customers can get a jumpstart on their day with a stop at the retail market, which opens at 10 a.m., an hour before the restaurant. Located just inside the front entrance, the seafood — much of it glistening in varying shades of pink — is on display under glass. A shopper may find Pacific opah (moonfish), Mexican yellowtail, Pacific mahi mahi, Alaskan halibut, black mussels or Sea of Cortez prawns, and much more. “It’s (the market) essentially the showpiece of what’s on the menu; it’s a purposeful place for people to buy fresh fish,” said Jim Wendler, president of The Fish Market. “People know us for having an extremely highquality product.” There’s also smoked fish, produced out of The Fish Market’s facility in South San

one of the featured entrees is Ginger Glazed Fijian ono with spicy shiitake mushrooms and bok choy.
Each week you’ll find a recipe from the featured restaurant online at lajollalight.com. Just click ‘Get The Recipe’ at the bottom of the story. ■ This week: The Fish Market’s Garlic Prawns Francisco, and prepared foods, such as chowders, that are made from scratch on the premises. However, customers won’t find unsustainable species, such as Chilean sea bass or orange roughy, Wendler said. For guests who dine in the restaurant, there’s so many options they can try something new each time they come in and never repeat, according to Wendler. The menu changes a couple of times daily, and is driven by the types of fresh fish that are available. The fresh fish entrees are mesquite grilled, and any of them can be made Cajun or blackened. Among the house specialties offered is Our Famous Dungeness Crab Cioppino, consisting of prawns, finfish, scallops, calamari, clams,
mussels and cockles with house-made marinara sauce and garlic bread. A group of three or four people may want to try the Smoked Fish Sampler, with trout, salmon, nova lox and albacore. There’s Fish Tacos, served with ranchero-style black beans; panko-style fish and chips; and seafood sandwiches and pastas. Not a fan of underwater species? Try one of a handful of salads, or order the Boneless All-Natural Jidori Chicken Breast or Omaha Natural New York Steak. Children can stay occupied with an activity booklet while enjoying food from their own special menu with pizza, pasta, shrimp, fish and chicken. To add to a patron’s unique dining experience, the nautically themed restaurant has seven
seating areas, featuring seafaring characters etched in glass, and murals by Wyoming artist Jocelyn Slack, along with artwork of boats and other marine scenes. Kick back at the oyster bar — where oysters are served on the half shell with Asian-style Mignonette or cocktail sauce — and drink a glass of wine. Perch on a stool in the dimly lit full-service lounge/bar, or anchor yourself in the bar patio that is reminiscent of a greenhouse. There’s plenty of room to maneuver in the spacious main dining room, but when it’s busy, the back dining room with its removable partitions becomes another destination. The deck has a plank-type of wood on the floor, with small lamps on the tables and multiple-paned windows. For a little privacy, there’s Fred’s Room, named for Fish Market Restaurants Inc. founder Fred Duckett, which can accommodate parties of up to 17. “We’ve been in the business for 35 years,” Wendler said. “Seafood is a complicated product to deal with, but we have earned trust from our customers over the years, and we have the quality that they appreciate.”

Richard Dreyfuss pitches civics initiative at Rotary meeting By Will Bowen Academy Award-winning actor Richard Dreyfuss made a powerful, impassionate and provocative plea for a return to accountability and personal involvement in government at the Friday morning meeting of the Golden Triangle Rotary Club at the La Jolla Marriott Hotel on Oct. 14. Dreyfuss, who now lives in Olivenhain, a part of rural Encinitas, proposed that
America re-establish civics, the study of the rights and duties of citizenship, in the curriculum of its schools, so that children will learn the skills and tools needed to be more politically involved in society, and thus become better citizens. Dreyfuss said he has retired from the acting profession to devote himself wholeheartedly to historical scholarship and this cause. To further his aim, he has
On the Web n TheDreyfussInitiative.org n lajollagtrotary.org founded the nonprofit TheDreyfussInitiative.org. Dreyfus was introduced by T.J. O’Hara, a political commentator, author and columnist, known as the “Common Sense Czar.” O’Hara hailed Dreyfus as “one of the finest Americans we

have, whose knowledge of American history is profound.” Dreyfuss said he became interested in civics during the George W. Bush administration. At that time, he sensed there was an eroding of individual rights, due to such legislation as the Patriot Act. But the straw that broke the camels back for Dreyfuss and propelled him into action was the lack of an appropriate government response to Hurricane Katrina. He said this was the first time in U.S. history that the government had let the people down during a crisis. Dreyfuss said he is motivated by “a love of my country and a love for my children.” He feels that America has gone off course and has abandoned its founding values. Dreyfuss further warned that America is not preparing adequately for the future by educating its children properly in democratic government. He stressed that Americans must do this if they want democracy to survive and because, “Our progeny are more important than our ancestry.” Dreyfuss noted that the American public is actually the fourth branch of government. The public, as a

Will Bowen whole, must be included in the checks and balances that govern the relationship of the legislative, executive, and judicial branches of government. He said each individual must stand up and become more engaged through a return to “reason, logic, dialogue, dissent, and critical analysis.” Dreyfuss wants to see an American history play competition throughout the country and has already received commitments from some 31 theaters. He is also is hoping to generate enough funds to buy a parcel of George Washington’s ancestral land from his descendents in order to start a research institute to further his cause. Dreyfuss said he decided to speak to the Rotary Club, which is the largest service

organization in the world, with more than a million members and 55 local service projects, because he needed its “thoughts, brains, and money-generating skills.” Kathleen Roche-Tansey, wife of the founder of Golden Triangle Rotary and state coordinator of Sister Cities International, said Dreyfuss was welcomed to speak because he exemplified the message and concerns of Rotary and was an embodiment of the Rotary motto “Service Above Self.” Dory Beatrice-Griffin, immediate past president of GTR Rotary agreed. “In Rotary, we have a deep concern about civics and ethics and changing the world for the better. Our goals overlap with those of Mr. Dreyfuss,” Griffin said. Brett Morey, president elect-elect of the club, said Dreyfuss was a model of what Rotarians are all about, “being a better person who is involved and engaged in bettering society, making connections between the generations, and putting others above oneself.” Dreyfuss ended his presentation with a warning: “America is the finest form of government that mankind has ever created. Don’t blow it!”

Pumpkin Pecan Cherry Bread
As the skeleton said to his dinner guests on Halloween – Bone appétit! ■ Ingredients: 1 15 ounce can pumpkin puree 2/3 cup apple juice or water 1 cup canola or grapeseed oil 4 large eggs 3 1/3 cups unbleached flour 2 cups brown sugar 1/2 cup maple or agave syrup 2 teaspoons baking soda 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1 teaspoon nutmeg 1/2 cup toasted, chopped pecans 1/2 cup dried cherries or raisins ■ Method: Preheat oven to 350º F. Grease two loaf pans (8 x 5 inch) with oil. In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine pumpkin, oil, eggs, syrup and beat until smooth. In a large mixing bowl combine the remaining ingredients. Gradually incorporate the dry ingredients into the wet, blending until thoroughly mixed. Pour into loaf pans and bake for one hour or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes clean. Serve with whipped cream or pumpkin gelato. FROM KITCHEN SHRINK, B1 a lunar libation of Double Cross Vodka, Valrhona white chocolate, vanilla infused pisco, and Sal de Camargue. ■ And for pure insanity, chug down the Mental Ward 10 of high west “bourye” bourbon, pomegranate, molasses, lime and sugar at Hotel Palomar’s new Saltbox Dining and Drinking. ■ Visit the Rancho Ber-

definitely want to cross paths with on Halloween — an icy Blavod Black Vodka blended with a raspberry-flavored Chambord garnished with fresh raspberries. Or, try a Bloody Brew, a twist on the classic Bloody Mary which adds a splash of beer to the mix to make it sizzle and foam at the mug. To shock the senses, (and your guests) try a Brain Hemorrhage that truly resembles gray matter in a glass. This cocktail layers Peach Schnapps and Irish Cream with a finishing drizzle of Grenadine over the top, giving the libation its signature color. And for that sweet caffeine jolt, do a Cookie Monster Cocktail that makes a liquid cookie sandwiching Irish Cream between Kahlua and Peppermint Schnapps. ■ Halloween food ideas: Whip up some fun Halloween eats to accompany these drinks. Kick off the festivities with an Eyeball Antipasto making a platter of your favs including artichoke hearts, roasted red peppers and giant green olives stuffed with pimentos, cut in half and strategically placed with toothpicks on

Riford Center hosts memorial for Jean Jones The Riford Center hosted a farewell party in honor of Jean La Farge Jones who passed away on Sept. 21. More than 65 friends and family members attended the memorial, according to Nancy Walters, center director. Jean was director of The Riford Center for 18 years, where she assisted countless seniors, developed numerous programs, kept the building humming, and later served on the board of directors. Jean was also a golfer and played bridge, her favorite pastime. From 1962 to 1977, Jean was personnel director of The May Jean La Farge Jones Company in Mission Valley. She was born in Hartington, Neb., on June 18, 1928. Bruce and Kenneth were her brothers. Jean grew up in Omaha, where she met the love of her life, Marinus Jones in 1954. Jean and Marinus moved to Phoenix, where their daughter, Judy was born in 1958, and then to San Diego, in 1959. Her granddaughter, Andrea, was born in 1979, and her great grandson, Benjamin, was born in 2010. The family suggests donations in memory of Jean to the Friends of the Riford, the Alzheimer’s Association, or San Diego Humane Society.

New exhibit has art you can touch for those with visual impairments FROM UCSD REPORTS In addition to offering classes and workshops, the Crafts Center’s Grove Gallery on UCSD campus features exhibits in contemporary crafts and ethnic art. Now through Nov. 18, the Crafts Center presents, “Art U Can Touch,” an exhibit intended to help people with visual-impairments overcome the barrier they experience at most museums by allowing everyone to experience the art by touching it. Sighted people will also learn to experience the art without their eyesight. The idea for the “Art U Can Touch” exhibit was spurred by an encounter between two students, Helen Kagan and Ahmet Ustunel, who met in a ceramics class at the Crafts Center. “We noticed that blind people are usually not allowed to touch art in museums, so they are prevented from learning about the great masterpieces of every culture,” Kagan said. Ustunel is visually-impaired and an artist. He first
from visually-impaired artists will be on display. The exhibit will feature a variety of media including sculptures, ceramics, fiber arts, glass, metalworks and jewelry. The art will showcase interesting textures and shapes and none of the pieces will be easily broken or dangerous to touch. The UCSD Crafts Center provides personal enrichment and creative educational opportunities to students interested in making art that includes jewelrymaking, drawing, lampworking, glassblowing, weaving and other crafts. Upcoming events at the
‘Exile’ and ‘Stacked Crystal Blocks’ (right) are two works in the show. COURTESY PHOTOS started making sculptures when he was a child and has been taking classes in pottery-making at the Crafts Center for about two years. “Since art is generally regarded as a visual aesthetic, many artists and museum visitors consider the sense of touch to be secondary,” Us-
tunel said. “We wanted to emphasize a different aspect of art: tactile beauty.” The exhibit will feature works from local artists including members of the Crafts Center Faculty, the San Diego Potters Guild, Sculpture Guild and Allied Craftsmen. In addition, works

Doctor will update luncheon guests on latest ovarian cancer research The Doris A. Howell Foundation for Women’s Health Research will present the last in its 2011 health lecture series, “Ovarian Cancer — How do we treat it in the genomic age?” from noon to 1:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 4 at the La Jolla Country Club. Stephen B. Howell, M.D., will offer a glimpse into how individualized treatment for patients is being explored via The Cancer Genome Atlas Project, a largescale collaborative effort to characterize the genomic changes that occur in cancer. The project, co-funded by NCI and the National Human Genome Research Institute, involves more than two dozen institutions. Dr. Howell is a professor of medicine at UCSD and an associate director for clinical research at the Moores Cancer Center. He is a graduate of Harvard Medical School and was trained as a medical oncologist and pharmacologist at the Massachusetts General Hospital, the
Stephen Howell, M.D. National Institutes of Health and the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. The Stephen B. Howell Laboratory at Moores UCSD Cancer Center, led by Dr. Howell, is a translational research program developing novel therapeutics and pharmacologically-driven strategies for improving the treatment of cancer patients. Ovarian cancer is the most lethal of the gynecologic cancers. It ranks ninth in the most common cancer in women (not including skin cancer) and fifth in cancer mortality among women in the United States
with an estimated 15,460 deaths and about 21,990 new cases in 2011 (American Cancer Society’s most recent estimates for 2011). Ovarian cancers grow silently in the early stages and most cases are not found until they are quite advanced. No really good screening test is available. Standard treatment consists of surgical removal of as much tumor as possible followed by chemotherapy with a combination of two drugs, carboplatin and paclitaxel — often times with poor results. During the last several years there has been slow yet steady improvement in the treatment of ovarian cancer, but still only approximately 40 percent at five years. Tickets are $50 for Howell Circle members, $55 for guests. The deadline to register is Oct. 28 at (858) 454-7797 by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.

FROM 10 QUESTIONS, B1 at the Shores and then moved to WindanSea. Most of my closest friends are still people I met there. Also, I won’t lie, burritos. It’s a lifelong obsession. Started at Lupita’s on Pearl (where Wahoo’s is now), when 31 Flavors was right next door. Then Salazar’s, Alfonso’s, Jose’s, El Ranchero, La Rancherita, La Posada del Sol, Don Juan, Don Carlos (pre-potato), Cebolla’s, Bahia (need bigger guacamole sides), Los Dos #’s 1 thru whatever, Porkyland, Ortega’s — I love you all. Most recent, of course, is Rigoberto’s. Jury’s still out, been there twice. Once was killer, once was “eh.” Am going to give them another shot when I get into town
next week. What might you add, subtract or improve in the area? I know everyone loves to talk about how all of the growth has ruined La Jolla. I don’t want to get into all that OR the seals OR the cross, but I will say that I miss surf movies at the Cove Theater, the Scot’s, Ginder’s, Scanlin’s, jumping off the Clam, WindanSea Grocery, (my parents account at) Nautilus Pharmacy, AM/PM, Yogurt Affair, Square Pan Pizza, and the pipe-smoking guy with the huge mustache that worked at the Radio Shack next door to Square Pan. That dude had the same 30 dusty records in there from like
1977 until it closed. Seriously though, they should let people jump off the Clam — I will gladly “Occupy” upper Bearclaw if anyone’s down for a little sit-in. Also, I don’t have any use for the gigantic fortresses on the water south of Big Rock, or the Victoria’s Secret where the doors are always open, and there’s always underwear that’s fallen off the racks just kinda sitting there crumpled up on the floor. Sigi’s always has their doors open, but they’re classy over there, no crumpled undies. What inspires you? Music still inspires me, I get jealous and antsy when I hear something good — and I’m still a huge fan of surfing. Mostly these days though,
it’s my kids and my wife. If you hosted a dinner party for eight, whom (living or deceased) would you invite? My uncle Tony Aguirre, my mom’s parents Russell and Aileen Kennedy, John Lennon, Bob Marley, Robert Kennedy, Robert Frost, and Cleopatra (saw a thing about her on TV last night). Also my combined birth and marriage families, otherwise what’s the point? And probably Jeff Saywitz, he’d be super fretty if Bob was there and I didn’t call him to come over and get all puffy. What are your favorite movies of all time? In no particular order,
and not necessarily current faves, just BIGGEST faves: “Willy Wonka” (with Gene Wilder), “Silver Streak” (with Gene Wilder), “Breaking Away,” “The Usual Suspects,” and “Bingo Long’s Traveling All Stars and Motor Kings.” And “The Jerk.” And “Tommy Boy.” And “Old School.” Ooh, “Bad News Bears,” of course. All very high brow, I know. What is your mostprized possession? Life, family. Not really possessions, but whatever. What do you do for fun? I have two young kids. That’s about all I do beside work. I love surfing, and wish I could surf more.
Describe your greatest accomplishment. For me personally, kids and family aside, I think I’m proudest of having finished a B.A. in English at UCLA. Started in 1987, graduated 2001. Holla! What is your motto or philosophy of life? “True wit is nature to advantage dressed, What oft was thought but ne’er so well expressed.” It’s from Alexander Pope’s “An Essay on Criticism.” — Editor’s Note: Gary Jules performed a benefit Oct. 21 for the San Diego Museum of Man, and was an honoree at The Bishop’s School annual fundraiser.
