San Diego mayoral candidates campaign in La Jolla, A24


By Pat Sherman One of the world’s leading geneticists and arguably the most famous UC San Diego graduate, J. Craig Venter, was thoughtful, direct and, at times, equally witty and outspoken during a presentation at UCSD’s Price Center Ballroom East on Oct. 28. Venter, one of the first scientists to sequence the human genome, and whose name will grace a $39 million, nonprofit genetic research institute opening on the UCSD campus this month, was at UCSD to promote his new book, “Life at the Speed of Light: From the J. Craig Venter Double Helix to the Dawn of Digital Life,” about the emerging field of synthetic genomics. A self-described late bloomer who “almost flunked out of high school” and moved to Southern California to pursue a surfing career, Venter’s book uses speed as one of the themes tying it together. “I am probably an adrenaline addict. My doctoral thesis was basically on how adrenaline works,” said Venter, 67, who participated in last month’s Pedal the Cause bike ride and also once aspired to be a racecar driver. However, those dreams faded, Venter said, when he was “drafted off my surfboard and ended up as a corpsman in Vietnam,” where he was initially inspired to pursue medicine

Smelly ol’ sea lions blamed for Cove stench

The sea lion excrement problem is a relatively new one, said Bill Harris of the city’s Transportation and Storm Water Department. The sea lion populations have significantly increased in the past two years; they didn’t start frequenting the Cove until recently. FILE

La Jolla Cove odors return after summer reprieve, city cites sea lions as the source By Pat Sherman hough the first round of a two-part cleanup of bird excrement on the cliffs above La Jolla Cove seemed to eradicate the foul smell through the summer, curiously, the stench has returned — even after a second application of a microbial agent that digests the bird guano was applied in September. Now, the city says the source of the smell is not cormorants, but excrement from sea lions at La Jolla Cove — a problem that could prove


more difficult and time consuming to remedy than the bird guano. Last week, merchants and residents met with representatives from the offices of District 1 City Councilmember Sherri Lightner and Interim Mayor Todd Gloria, as well as members of the city’s Park and Recreation Department, lifeguards and others to discuss the problem. “The stink is as bad as it has ever been,”

City postpones vote on seal pup season beach closure SEAL WATCH

By Pat Sherman A proposal to prohibit people from going onto the beach at the Children’s Pool (aka Casa Beach) in La Jolla during the seals’ pupping season was postponed by the San Diego City Council on Tuesday, Oct. 29. City staff said the California Coastal Commission (CCC) had a procedural issue with the closure, and asked for the postponement. It could be January before the plan goes back to the city council. The proposed beach ban would have been in effect between Dec. 15 and May 15, when the seals are birthing and weaning their young, in an effort to prevent them from being harassed. City staff was going to ask the council to designate the beach as an Environmentally Sensitive Habitat Area (ESHA), one potential regulatory step used to close the beach to people.

However, a letter to the city council and Interim Mayor Todd Gloria from CCC staff dated Oct. 25 states that while CCC staff are “supportive of the city’s proposal to impose seasonal restrictions, including full beach closure to the public during the pupping season, we do not support an ESHA designation at Children’s Pool as part of the subject LCP (Local Coastal Plan) amendment. Within areas designated as ESHA, only resource-dependent uses are allowed, which would preclude many activities normally associated with the beach, including, but not limited to sunbathing, accessing the water, passive recreational uses and possible repair/maintenance of the breakwater. Under the Coastal Act, marine mammal protection and maximum public access opportunities are both mandated.” The letter goes on to state, “Other jurisdictions which have designated marine mammal haulout areas and/or rookeries as ESHA do not share the same site-specific conditions present at Children’s Pool, including its close proximity to an intense urban setting, ease in accessibility … dedicated user groups and the city’s joint use management strategy that has

City staff was going to ask the city council to make Casa Beach (aka Children’s Pool) an Environmentally Sensitive Habitat Area, taking it one regulatory step closer to closing the beach to people in winter. allowed people and seals to share the beach.” After consulting with its staff ecologist and legal counsel, the letter states, CCC staff “recommends that seasonal restrictions be considered based on the protection of marine resources pursuant to Section 30230 of the Coastal Act.” The CCC letter includes suggested amendments to the city’s proposed LCP amendment that preclude formation of an ESHA as an option.

The city has already erected a rope spanning the beach that’s up year-round to discourage people from getting too close to the seals, though it leaves a three-foot opening to allow access for divers, spear fishers and swimmers who still choose to access the shoreline. In a statement issued to La Jolla Light last week, La Jolla Friends of the Seals said seal advocates view the postponement as “unfortunate.” “The reason for this

postponement is to bring the city and the California Coastal Commission into alignment on the strategy that accomplishes that goal (winter closure), which both agencies support,” the statement reads. “We are optimistic that once the strategy is finalized, (winter) beach closure … will be approved by the city and the California Coastal Commission.” Friends of the Children’s Pool (FoCP), which advocates for continued public access to the beach, see the postponement as a victory. “Returning an item to staff … gives city staff an opportunity to correct deficiencies and improve a proposed action, but it also is an implicit admission that a proposal is not ready to be heard due to inadequacies,” the statement reads, in part. “In short, the Coastal Commission recognized that the Children’s Pool is a unique area and that the city’s proposed ESHA is not appropriate.” FoCP is advocating for a plan promoted by the local lifeguards union that would install moveable boulders at Children’s Pool beach that could be arranged alternately during pupping season as a barrier to protect the seals, while allowing access to the shoreline.

Teen driver in La Jolla’s Muirlands crash attempting motorsports trick, police say By Pat Sherman San Diego police say the cause of a rollover crash in La Jolla’s Muirlands neighborhood on Oct. 26 is the result of a teen driver attempting to emulate a popular motorsport technique known as “drifting.” Glamorized in the 2006 street racing film, “The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift,” it occurs when the driver over-steers, causing a loss of traction in the rear wheels or all tires. “You can’t do it (drifting) with an SUV — especially with 15 other kids sitting behind you,” San Diego Police Traffic Division Detective Dan Wall told La Jolla Light. The 16-year-old boy, possessing only a recently issued provisional license, lost control of a 2002 Ford Expedition SUV while going around a corner in the 800 block of Muirlands Visa Way shortly after 8 p.m. Sixteen La Jolla High School students were in the vehicle — 13 of them, ages 14 to 17 — were injured in the crash. Wall described the injuries as “pretty bad,” including concussions, broken ribs and broken bones. “One girl got a brain bleed. Another girl got her leg ripped open — and a bunch of stitches. Another guy’s got a broken pelvis, and a dislocated leg,” Wall said. The driver was traveling 40 miles per hour

Scene of the Oct. 26 rollover crash on north Muirlands Vista Way involving 16 La Jolla High School students. Courtesy of San Diego Police in a 25 mph zone on Muirlands Vista Way when he attempted to drift. The vehicle rolled over and landed on its roof. None of the teens were wearing seat belts. The teens had fled a party at a home where there were no adults present, with the parents likely out of town, Wall said. He said

the teens fled when a neighbor phoned the grandparents of the teen who lives there. The teen driver, who suffered only minor injuries, was not drinking and passed a sobriety test. However, other passengers had been drinking and several empty beer containers were located in the crashed SUV.

The incident is still under investigation, and charges may be filed against the young driver (whose name has not been released), though Wall said the charges will depend on whether any of the teen passengers develop long-term injuries. Police reported the incident to the Department of Motor Vehicles. Under California law, a driver with a provisional license may not carry passengers under age 18 unless an adult age 25 or older is in the vehicle. “Right now, it’s going to be up to the DMV if he even keeps his license,” Wall said. Responding to an inquiry via e-mail, La Jolla High Interim Principal Pat Crowder said, “We are working with our PTA to provide a parent presentation to discuss a number of social issues our students face, and topics will include student drinking, etc. We are planning to have at least one local judge and law enforcement (as) speakers. We are also planning other parent information sessions to specifically address controlled substances.” An e-blast sent to parents last week said, in part, “The school recognizes that this is a difficult issue for some of our students. We will be offering counseling to any student affected by this incident in the coming days.”

Goldfish Point, WindanSea landscape plans progress La Jolla

Parks and Beaches

By Ashley Mackin Landscape architect Jim Neri made a presentation to the La Jolla Parks and Beaches (LJP&B) advisory committee Oct. 28 about two coastal projects — Goldfish Point erosion control and the final leg of the WindanSea “S-Curve” improvement.

Goldfish Point

The Goldfish Point erosion control plan underwent changes since the LJP&B committee approved the plan in November 2012, so Neri returned to explain the changes and get new board approval. Neri said the soil on the cliffs at Goldfish Point is eroding, so his plan will use two strategies to slow that process. The original, and LJP&Bapproved plan, called for the revegetation of the cliffs at Goldfish Point, with the plant roots holding onto the soil, and a post-and-link barrier defining the paths, so human access would not contribute to further erosion. However, lifeguards fought the plan, saying they were uncomfortable with climbing over any barrier in the event of an emergency. Neri reported that Jim Allen, Sunny Jim’s Cave Store owner and project originator, supported changing the plan based on lifeguard needs. “He said, ‘if it’s a

problem with the lifeguards, let’s take that part of the project out.’ ” The alternative, and focus of the LJP&B presentation, was a set of large cobblestones delineating the paths on the rocks. Neri said the stones would be six to eight inches wide and spaced two feet apart. They would be about 60 percent imbedded in the soil so they could not be easily pulled out. “We came up with creating a trail as coastal access, so there is the same coastal access that everyone enjoys now, but it’s identified now, simply by having some small cobbles and decomposed granite imbedded in the soil, instead of having people running over the entire point,” he explained. Neri added that people walking all over the rocks not only contributes to the erosion, but inhibits the needed plants from growing. He plans to plant native vegetation that can develop and adapt in the environment at the Cove. “The idea is we replace the vegetation that was once there, with new vegetation that is adaptable to this very extreme and harsh environment without any supplemental irrigation,” he said. The plants would further outline where it is safe for pedestrians to walk and explore the cliffs. Hoping for quick approval from the Department of Park and Rec and Department of Asset Management, Neri said the plants would ideally be planted in late December or early January 2014. In those cold and rainy conditions, he said, the plants could take root in their ideal conditions. A motion to approve the changes to the plan passed unanimously.

The cliffs at Goldfish Point would be re-vegetated and paths defined under a plan by Jim Neri. Ashley Mackin

The S-Curve

Joking that he has been working on WindanSea improvements his entire life, Neri said he hopes to start the project for the “S-Curve” — the stretch of sidewalk that curves around 201 Bonaire St. and extends along Neptune Place leading to the beach access stairway — soon. “To date, we have improved the parking lot, we’ve got benches placed along the coast and we have improved the coastal access stairways along this stretch of beach. The one built piece of work we haven’t done is … the S-Curve,” he said. The project proposes replacing the rusted, dilapidated chain-link fence with a combination of postand-chain, guardrail and a postand-rail barrier. “By barriers, we are talking about something transparent not over three feet high, but that gives an implied barrier to people walking by so they don’t just walk down the bluffs at any point. Instead (of impeding beach access) we are guiding people to some already formed access ways down to the beach.” In addition to the barrier and trail improvements, the gaps between the sidewalk and the

current post and chain barrier that have formed over the years will be filled in with decomposed granite. Neri explained his presentation was just an update, and that he would go to the Park and Recreation Department and the lifeguards, for feedback. Their input will determine when Neri can implement the development. If the city determines the project requires a Coastal Development permit, it could take a year, Neri said. If the city determines this is a maintenance project — which Neri said he thinks it is — he could get started in early spring, with a break for the summer moratorium.

In other LJP&B news:

n Regional Park Improvement Fund: The City of San Diego’s Park and Recreation Department staff will be making recommendations on how to allocate the Regional Park Improvement Funds (RPIF) over the next five years, and reached out to LJP&B for its suggestions. “It came to my mind that we just completed the list of items we would like to see included in the Capital Improvements Plan,” said LJP&B Chair Dan Allen, who

suggested the board pull items from that list and pass those suggestions on to Park and Rec to be included on the RIPF list. The top three items the board submitted for consideration to the Capital Improvement Plan were: Coast Boulevard sidewalk improvements at Children’s Pool, the Scripps Park 2009 Plan, and to restore the ramp to the beach at Children’s Pool. These items are three of 13 projects the board hopes to see funded. “Since we already voted on these, in order of preference … I’d like to see (items) one through three submitted,” said member Anne Podney. However, after audience member comments, the board agreed to send the three suggestions as a bulleted list, as opposed to a prioritized, numbered list. A motion to send the three items to the Department of Park and Rec as the official LJP&B suggestions passed with unanimity. n Cove lifeguard station: Allen said he received a letter from City of San Diego project manager Jihad Sleiman regarding the Cove lifeguard station. “Architectural engineering drawings have been completed, a site development permit granted and coastal development permit issued,” he read, adding that a contractor has been signed up and the first phase will start this winter and be completed in fall 2014. — LJP&B meets 4 p.m. fourth Mondays at the La Jolla Rec Center, 615 Prospect St. Learn more at

Kudos to Bird Rock Trash Can Beautification Project


he three cement trash cans in Bird Rock have recently undergone an artistic facelift as part of an ongoing effort to add functional art to the streetscape, beautify La Jolla Boulevard, and foster community spirit. Artist Jane Wheeler designed the nine mosaic panels that incorporate a nature/ocean/community theme. These are surrounded with fused-glass borders. The glass was made by Summer Walk attendees, Bird Rock residents and high school students Charlie Mann and Claire Arthurs. The panels showcase the words “Bird Rock,” and each trash can has the words “Keep Bird Rock Clean” incorporated into the design, as well as various nature

quotes from the likes of Jacques Cousteau and Ralph Waldo Emerson. Special thanks to sponsors: the Yashar family, the Lincoln family, the Sutton family, the Dykstra family and Patty Vuz. More special thanks to those who helped make the project a reality: Joe Parker, Jacqueline Bell, Scott and Orlando Wright, Charlie Mann, Cathy Riley, Stacey Haerr, Shannon Cunningham and the Wheeler family. The trashcans are located in front of Glo Beauty Bar at the corner of La Jolla Boulevard and Bird Rock Avenue, and across the street, and in front of Capricorn Boutique. — Jane Wheeler

Posture & Chronic Pain Improper posture can create chronic neck or back pain. A healthy spine has 3 natural curves: cervical, thoracic and lumbar. To maintain good posture, these curves need to be in balanced alignment. The hip, knee and ankle joints support the spine’s curves when you move. In addition to having a healthy spine and joints to avoid chronic pain, it’s also important to strengthen & stretch muscles of the hip, abdominals and legs. If joints or muscles are weak or tight, poor posture can develop; the shoulders may be rounded or winged, low back arched, the head may be too far forward or back. When the spine is properly aligned, the ears, shoulders, hips, knees and ankles are stacked. With age, it becomes more difficult to maintain or correct posture. Physical therapy can help retrain and strengthen areas of the body that support good posture.At Ability Rehab, we will evaluate your body mechanics, alignment, flexibility, range of motion and strength to establish an individualized treatment plan. There are many techniques used to correct posture including strengthening & stretching exercises, manual therapy, gait training, postural corrections, breathing exercises and more. P.S. If you spend most of your day at a desk, get up and move around at least every hour.

Trailer for human trafficking film premieres in La Jolla By Ashley Mackin The Anthony Cohen Project, a task force aimed at ending human trafficking, held a fund-raising gala Oct. 28 at La Jolla’s Ferrari of San Diego dealership. Project founder Anthony Cohen premiered a trailer about human trafficking to about 100 people there. It encapsulates a feature-length film he hopes to make. Cohen is the CEO and founder of Bridgegate Films (“Face Off,” “Swordfish,” “Primary Colors”) and called on the services of Keith Holland to direct the short film. Holland would also direct the fulllength film if it is made. “We made several short films on the subject of sex trafficking and we are raising money to make a feature film with the intention of educating the beautiful young ladies in our community of the dangers of the sex trafficking industry and the scenarios that occur that lead to them being abducted into sex slavery,” he said. Scenarios, he said, that are different from the ones that happen in other countries. “In third world countries … parents are actually selling their children, not knowing what’s going

to happen to them, but they think they are selling (their children) into a better life,” he said. “Here, girls are grabbed off the streets, from parking lots, at parties and photo shoots. The goal is to create an awareness, and possibly save some girls that might otherwise fall prey just because they are aware that these situations exist.” Holland took the experiences of trafficking survivors and reenacted

them for the short film. For the feature film, he said they would likely implement a similar strategy, using case studies from survivors in reenactments as opposed to a fictitious storyline. The difficulty, however, is getting the full message to the right audience. “It’s challenging because the material is so graphic, but we don’t want to make an R-rated film because then it would preclude the

audience we are trying to inform,” Holland said. “It’s teenage girls who are most vulnerable and they need to see these things. They think ‘it couldn’t happen to me’ and ‘it couldn’t happen in San Diego.’” Of the short film, Cohen told the audience, “I apologize if it’s graphic, if it’s insulting to some of you, but this is what happens. This is exactly what happens when someone gets taken (into sex trafficking).”

He said he wanted to produce the film because other films glamorized the subject, such as a film titled “Eden,” which depicts the U.S. Army as traffickers. He also learned there was a spike in the number of runaways after the film “Pretty Woman” was released in 1990, because girls thought, “their Richard Gere would come.” Unbeknown to Cohen, the person on whom “Eden” was based was also at the “Eden” screening. He asked her if the story was accurate, to which she replied, “absolutely not.” Cohen proceeded to ask directors why the film was dramatized, and they said the investors threatened to back out of the project unless they were assured the film would sell. This inspired Cohen to make a realistic film that showed the graphic nature of human trafficking. “I realized it was about dollars and cents,” he said. He made the decision to only put his name on a project that “explored the true, and often graphic, nature of the practice of human trafficking.” The short film can be viewed at, where donations to help fund the feature film are also being accepted.

AT&T to replace broken planters

La Jolla Community Planning Association

A representative for AT&T says the telecommunications giant plans to replace broken planter boxes on the sidewalk in front of its unmarked facility on Girard Avenue at Torrey Pines Road. The building, which opened “as a telephone building” in April 1930 (according to the La Jolla Historical Society) has been owned and operated by AT&T for many years. Contacted last week by La Jolla Light in regard to the planter boxes, which have sat broken for years, as well as trash frequently littering the area (Tarnishing Our Jewel), AT&T spokesperson Anna Crowe of Gable PR said the company is working with the city to develop a proposal to remove the planter boxes “and figure out what’s going to replace them.” Crowe said she does not have an estimated completion date for the work because “it’s just in the initial stages of the proposal.” She said AT&T employs someone to pick up the trash and a separate landscaper to pull weeds once a month. “ “They will continue ongoing maintenance such as trash removal, weed removal as it happens,” she said. The Light will follow up with AT&T in the coming months to check the status of the work.

La Jolla Village Merchants Association n Merchants Association lands tenant: Less than a month after the La Jolla Village Merchants Association (LJVMA) announced that it was seeking to sublease two-thirds of the Information Center it operates at 1162 Prospect St. to help it recover from financial distress, the organization has landed a tenant. Sotheby’s International Realty is scheduled to sublease the back office space at a rate of $6,500 per month, splitting utilities and maintenance on the space with the LJVMA, according to the organization’s executive director, Sheila Fortune. “This sub-lease will enable LJVMA to operate with reduced overhead expenses due to the reduction in grants and advertising income over 2013,” Fortune said, via e-mail. Sotheby’s signed a contract to sublease the space until March 2015. n Haute La Jolla Nights canceled: The LJVMA also announced that its regular Haute La Jolla Nights music and shopping event scheduled for the Village on Nov. 16 has been canceled.

LJCPA trustees will also revisit concerns about a newly installed school crossing and median on upper Girard Avenue (between La Jolla Elementary School and The Gillispie School).

Sarah Napoli, president/CEO of San Diego Police Foundation, displays plush K-9s the foundation is using to raise money to replace 12 retiring police dogs ($20 minimum donation). from Sarah Napoli, president and CEO of the San Diego Police Foundation, which helps funds equipment, training and outreach programs for law enforcement that aren’t covered by the city budget (such as an anti-cyber-bullying TV ad campaign). “The San Diego Police Department has the lowest per capita police force of a major city in the United States, and yet our city has the second lowest crime rate of major cities in the United States,” Napoli said. “We’re doing a lot with a little, but our job is to make sure that the public doesn’t take that for granted.” Napoli said small portable trauma kits paid for by a La Jolla resident through an unrestricted donation to the San Diego Police Foundation helped save the lives of two sheriff’s deputies at the scene of a crime earlier this year. “Two (officers) were felled, and as they lie wounded and bleeding out, this (off duty officer, Michael DeWitt) grabbed his vest — in it, a trauma kit funded by somebody in your community — and he saved both of those sheriff’s deputies’ lives,” Napoli said. “Something seemly so small and not necessarily very expensive — about $35 per kit — could save lives, and we’re going to need some more in the next year.” Napoli also plugged the police foundationfunded K-9 crime fighters program. “Every police dog that’s been purchased by SDPD over the last decade has been funded by community donations that have come through our foundation,” Napoli said. “They serve about eight years, come typically from Europe, where they are trained for sport. Then, when they’re chosen for police work, they come for special training and cost almost $12,000 each. They are put to work and paired with an officer. That bond is very, very strong.” Napoli said the Belgian Malinois dogs can smell 800 times better than humans and have no fear. “They are truly force multipliers for SDPD and every department,” she said, noting

that of the 31 K-9s in service, 12 are retiring in the next year. “Behind them, who will follow in their paw prints?” Napoli said, making a plea for donations.

Information, “We’re a force to be reckoned with now,” Gardner chimed, thanking her fellow event organizers. “We picked the small ballroom at the Hilton, thinking, let’s hope we fill it. We filled it; we over-filled it. We brought in more tables; we sold them. The house was packed.” Gardner said next year she hopes to seek sponsorships for the event. However, LJTC President Cindy Greatrex advised, “Before that, we have to vote as a council on the event — on any event.” “There will be an event, whether the council wants it or not,” Gardner assured. “(Celebrity choreographer and the event’s emcee) Mary Murphy has committed to another year. … When you get a winning ticket like that, we can’t let it (go).” n Greatrex also announced that the LJTC has hired a new website developer to add interactivity and video for its gold members. “It’s just something that we need to do, and it’s unfortunately impossible with our current website format,” Greatrex said. Greatrex told the Light the council is also in the midst of a membership campaign to get more people at monthly meetings. She said the LJTC currently has more than 5,400 followers on its Facebook page. “It’s shows that more people are paying attention,” Greatrex said. “Maybe they don’t come to council meetings (or other civic group meetings) in person, but they are proactively interested.” n The next meeting of the La Jolla Town Council is at 5 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 14 at La

n Trustees will also hold a full hearing on revised plans to demolish a 3,321-squarefoot, two-story residence at 7106 Vista Del Mar in WindanSea, and construct a 3036-square-foot, two-story single-family residence above a 2,222-square-foot basement (the Biddulph Residence). Though permits for the project were approved by the Development Permit Review Committee in July, in August the overarching LJCPA found the project was “not in conformance with the La Jolla Community Plan because the proposed building’s bulk neither maintains nor enhances the existing neighborhood character with regard to surrounding structures as viewed from the public rightof-way.” More information at

$100 million gift launches Sanford Stem Cell Clinical Center In a step toward delivering the therapeutic promise of human stem cells, businessman and philanthropist T. Denny Sanford committed $100 million to the creation of the Sanford Stem Cell Clinical Center at the UC, San Diego. The Sanford Center will accelerate development of drugs and cell therapies inspired by and derived from current human stem cell research; establishing, promoting and disseminating clinical trials and patient therapies that will help more quickly transform promise into reality. The Sanford Center will integrate operations at four locations: the UC San Diego Jacobs Medical Center and a nearby proposed clinical space, both scheduled to open in 2016; the UC San Diego Center for Advanced Laboratory Medicine (CALM); and the Sanford Consortium for Regenerative Medicine (SCRM). It will provide physical and human resources needed to leverage stem cell research currently being conducted at the Sanford Consortium — an innovative “collaboratory” of San Diego scientists from UC San Diego, the Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute, the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, The Scripps Research Institute and the La Jolla Institute for Allergy & Immunology — and other institutions on and around the Torrey Pines mesa, such as the J. Craig Venter Institute.

Murfey Construction company voted Best Contractor of 2013 By Marti Gacioch The La Jolla community voted Murfey Construction Company the Best Contractor of 2013 — a title well-suited to the company’s co-owner brothers, Scott and Russ Murfey. Whether it’s building a custom home, handling a major remodel or simply a kitchen or bath renovation, Murfey Construction will shine at the job. The company boasts the skills, experience and expertise needed to build a quality one-of-akind project, or transform a private residence into a dream home. The Murfey brothers grew up in La Jolla and said they’re very familiar with the neighborhood requirements and why customers need to entrust their beloved homes to a respectful, honest, quality general contractor who uses the current technologies while still providing oldfashioned service. “We think that personal interaction with our customers ensures a timely and costeffective construction project with succinct attention to detail,” Scott Murfey said. “We are big fans of getting on a project’s team early to help plan and price out work during the design phase so that clients get a better understanding of what time and costs are

Catalina. The site’s estimated completion date is fall 2014. Each three-bedroom, three-bath 1,500 square-foot townhome will feature a front door with direct walk-up access. They are targeted to young, urban families or empty nesters and feature two-car garages, roof decks, air conditioning, LED lighting, gas appliances and European cabinetry. Rooftop solar panels will provide electricity for the units. “It’s a real neighborhood location that is pedestrian-friendly, where walking and bike riding are pretty much the norm,” Scott Murfey said. “Schools and several parks are nearby and there’s a brand new library just down the street. If you go one way, you have the harbor, and the other way is Ocean Beach, which has been revitalized by several new restaurants.” — The Murfeys invite people to stop by their new offices at 1571 La Playa Ave. in the Crown Point neighborhood of Pacific Beach, (858) 352-6864 or (858) 405-0186, or view their project portfolio at and The Business Spotlight features commercial enterprises that support the La Jolla Light.

La Jolla landscaping vandalized

Our philosophy is really quite simple…

This photo of our front yard shows what vandals did to the landscaping, recently. This happened to us a year and a half ago as well. It takes over a year for the ivy to grow back after it is cut. My husband spoke to surveyors about the situation, when he saw them looking for a marker on our property. They said they witnessed the same damage done to another property in La Jolla last week. Their theory was that the vandals would use all the cut ivy as mature seedlings. My husband and I have bemoaned the proliferation of houses in La Jolla now hiding behind walls. Obviously, if we wish to have an attractive front yard we, too, will need to build a wall. Through the years, while we have been out working in the garden, dozens of strangers have stopped to thank us and comment on how much they appreciate our garden. Even the water-meter reader stopped to thank us. Our home was on the Historical Society’s garden tour a few years ago during which we had more than 800 people visit. While you are working diligently on polishing the jewel, those of us who devote our time and money to join in the cause are punished. Betsy McClendon, IIDA, CID La Jolla

Nathan Fletcher. He’s a businessman and he understands how the world works and he served in the military. He’s a fiscal conservative and a social liberal.

This senior is done with trying to be PC Dear Readers: I am in my 80s and have lived in La Jolla for many years. I am so DONE with the Politically Correct agenda. The meaning of Christmas is to celebrate the birth of Christ and it happens to be the most important day in a Christian’s life. Why is it so disturbing to nonChristians that we celebrate and honor this event? The Christmas Parade has been a tradition for years in La Jolla and our community looks forward to hosting it. Several years ago, a vote was taken in La Jolla to see how the residents felt about the name of the parade and it was an overwhelming YES that they wanted the name to remain the La Jolla Christmas Parade. It has gotten to the point that during the Christmas season you can’t even say “Merry Christmas” to a person without feeling you are offending them. I, for one, hope other Christians in the area will voice their opinions and be heard because we are the majority and should not, once again, let the minority rule. And by the way, I haven’t seen or heard other religions change the names for their religious holidays so that we all can feel included, have you? Syd Jones La Jolla

Not diminished in my faith by other celebrations Born at a Catholic Hospital (Mercy) and raised in San Diego gives me a rich historical reference. Anyone who finds themself a minority in this world is always going to find

I’m an independent, so party affiliation doesn’t come into the way I vote. I’ve narrowed it down to two candidates, but it’s still up in the air. I was influenced by their position on the Chargers, the Convention Center, Balboa Park and neighborhoods versus infrastructure. Lois DeMay

Nathan Fletcher. He’s a good guy, he served two years in Iraq. He served the country so he deserves to be mayor. I think he’s an honest, hard-working guy, so I support him 100 percent. Kim Yenshuang

Kevin Faulconer. He is the most fiscally conservative, and I think he is the only one who will actually take care of La Jolla and infrastructure issues. Our city is heading toward catastrophe if we don’t fix some of these problems. The consensus seems to be because he has done the audits and understands the system so well, he’s the one who can fix it. Catharine Marshall

I’m supporting Nathan Fletcher because I think he can work with the governor and (Congressmember) Scott Peters. I like the fact that he’s changed from a Republican to a Democrat; he’s accepted reality. He’s seen the light. Charles Cornwell

someone else who rationalizes their beliefs. Personally, I don’t care if the La Jolla parade in December is called Christmas, Chanukah, Kwanzaa, Agnostic or Atheist. The reason being I am well aware that for many years La Jolla held the reputation, well deserved, as being less than open to minorities. Growing up in San Diego, we loved to window shop, go to the beach and dine in La Jolla. Yet, we knew living here was really not in the realm of possibility. The oft told tale of Dr. Revelle and his insistence on opening the community was the first step in creating an ecumenical community. We need to pick our battles, not encourage new ones. I am distressed to read in a recent letter to the editor in the La Jolla Light this quote in regard to the parade: “We will continue to work to try and get La Jolla back to where it used to be!” The allusion is explained as meaning pride and respect. It certainly doesn’t sound respectful to me and to others who do not observe their faith as that writer does. If we truly are to be thought of as respectful, we need to understand that even those of us

who do not observe Christmas are fully thankful we live in a community where people can. I am not diminished in my faith by those who celebrate theirs. But, it speaks to a level of intolerance to have those beliefs explained as “how it used to be.” Gayle Wise La Jolla

IRS warns taxpayers of pervasive telephone scam The Internal Revenue Service is warning consumers about a sophisticated phone scam targeting taxpayers, including recent immigrants, throughout the country. Victims are told they owe money to the IRS and it must be paid promptly through a pre-loaded debit card or wire transfer. If the victim refuses to cooperate, they are then threatened with arrest, deportation or suspension of a business or driver’s license. In many cases, the caller becomes hostile and insulting. “This scam has hit taxpayers in nearly every state in the country. We want to educate taxpayers so they can help protect themselves. Rest assured, we do not and will not ask for credit card numbers over the phone, nor request a prepaid debit card or wire transfer,” said IRS Acting Commissioner Danny Werfel. “If someone unexpectedly calls claiming to be from the IRS and threatens police arrest, deportation or license revocation if you don’t pay immediately, that is a sign that it really isn’t the IRS calling.” Werfel noted that the first IRS contact with taxpayers on a tax issue is likely to occur via mail Other characteristics of this scam include: n Scammers use fake names and fake IRS badge numbers. They generally use common names and surnames to identify themselves. n Scammers may be able to recite the last four digits of a victim’s Social Security Number.

If you get a phone call from someone claiming to be from the IRS, here’s what to do: n If you know you owe taxes or you think you might owe taxes, call the IRS at 1-800-829-1040. The IRS employees at that line can help you with a payment issue – if there really is such an issue. n If you know you don’t owe taxes or have no reason to think that you owe any taxes (for example, you’ve never received a bill or the caller made some baseless threats as described above), then call and report the incident to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration at 1-800366-4484. n If you’ve been targeted by this scam, you should also contact the Federal Trade Commission and use their “FTC Complaint Assistant” at Add “IRS Telephone Scam” to the comments of your complaint. n Scammers spoof the IRS toll-free number on caller ID to make it appear that it’s the IRS calling. n Scammers sometimes send bogus IRS emails to some victims to support their bogus calls. n Victims hear background noise of other calls being conducted to mimic a call site. After threatening victims with jail time or driver’s license revocation, scammers hang up and others soon call back pretending to be from the local police or DMV, and the caller ID supports their claim.


William F. Maloney

1919 – 2013

William F. “Bill” Maloney, former Professor at UCSD and loving husband and friend to many, died on October 10, 2013, in Lake Oswego, OR. He was born on June 20, 1919, in Minneapolis, the son of William D. Maloney and Mildred A. Taylor. After graduating from West High School, he began his long association with the University of Minnesota, doing his undergraduate work in Science and Business Administration and graduate work in Medicine. His doctorate in Medicine was completed while serving in the U.S. Army during World War II. Bill’s long and full career

was interrupted during his medical internship in Oakland, California, when he contracted tuberculosis from a patient newly returned from the Pacific front. He came back to his home state and spent the next four years at the Glen Lake Sanatorium in Glen Lake. Upon recovery, he returned to the University of Minnesota, where he became a professor and, subsequently, the youngest Assistant Dean in the School of Medicine in 1953. During this time, he spent six months as a consultant to the Seoul National University Medical School, helping to rebuild the training programs after the Korean conflict. His interest in medical education and his commitment to inclusive health care continued to guide his career. He held positions as Professor and Dean at the Medical College of Virginia in Richmond as well as at Tufts Medical School in Boston. While acting as Associate Executive Director of the Association of American Medical Colleges in Evanston, Illinois, he also lectured at Northwestern University School of Medicine. He directed continuing medical education programs for the

He ultimately served alongside his wife, Orienne, as Medical Director for her project Human Dimensions in Medical Education in La Jolla, where he was able to more fully explore the human aspects of medical education and holistic health care. As a teacher, administrator, advisor, board member, mentor, author, and national speaker, Bill earned numerous awards and honors. He was professionally active well into his nineties, a testament to his intellect, strong work ethic, and passionate commitment to his life’s work. Bill is survived by his wife of 33 years, Orienne Maloney, who is now living in Lake Oswego, OR, close to her daughter. He is also survived by his four children, Kathryn IngallsMaloney of Minneapolis, William E. Maloney of St. Paul, Margaret Maloney of North Berwick, Maine, and Douglas Maloney of Minneapolis; and six grandchildren, Charles and Tom Rodda, Sophie

Police seek suspect in foiled rape attempt San Diego police are searching for the suspect in an attempted rape that occurred near the UC San Diego campus, Monday night, Nov. 4. The incident happened around 7:15 p.m. at The Villas apartment complex in the 5200-block of Fiore Terrace. Police say a 23-year-old exchange student was in the underground parking area when a man approached her with a gun, pushed her against the car and put his hand up her shirt. The man ran off when another resident exited from the elevator. Police say the suspect is in his early 20s with a thin build.

From Cove Stench, A1 causing clients to flee local businesses,” La Jolla Village Merchants Association President Phil Coller said. “We’ve had some major clients … canceling a very expensive (hotel) suite, saying, ‘We can’t stand it; we’re leaving.’” Bill Harris, head of the city’s Transportation and Storm Water Department, said the city is looking at “anything and everything” to solve the problem, “within the bounds of what we’re allowed to do.” “We have to go through a whole host and maze of regulations in order to determine which ones are allowable, let alone which one would work, but Park and Recreation and the city as a whole is going to be doing that, looking for good ideas. … “The problem is a relatively new one,” Harris said. “The sea lion populations have jumped very much in the past couple of years alone. There’s no real history of sea lions picking this spot, even when the fence (above La Jolla Cove) was put in more than 10 years ago. They just didn’t start using it until recently.” Keith Merkel, a consulting biologist hired by the city this year to oversee cleanup of the Cove, said the odor is different today than it was at the beginning of the year, though it is “still very bad.” “The strong, burning ammonia smell that you were historically getting out there (from the birds) is more or less gone,” Merkel said. “The sea lions are the dominant smell out there at this point … and a big part of it is that the adult sea lions that were off during the spring and summer months on the island rookeries are now back.” Merkel said there is a wide variability in the smell of see lion

excrement, based on conditions such as their diet. “If they (feed on) a large school of very greasy fish like anchovies or sardines, they bring all that back and dump it on the rocks and it smells really bad,” he said. “Conversely, if they’re feeding mostly on local rock fish and lowoil fish the smell is not nearly that bad. It’s one of those things that change very quickly from day to day or period to period.” Merkel said the adult sea lions also tend to climb up higher on the rocks, defecating in areas that don’t get cleansed by tides as often. He said the application of the microbial foam by Blue Eagle Distribution (a total cost of about $100,000) worked well on the bird guano and sea lion excrement on the cliffs, though it’s probably not a viable solution for treating the sea lion waste at the Cove. “The urine is pretty bad too, so the pools out there are really rank when they form,” he said. “The bigger problem really is the magnitude of time you’d have to spend treating (the sea lion waste) and the cost of treating — you treat one day and the next night everything’s loaded up again. It’s just not realistic as your primary source of treatment.” Harris added, “You’d have to be down there almost all the time to put enough of the material down to make an impact. There’s just that much of it, and it’s spread out and caught in every little nook and cranny on the cliffs because it’s a slurry, rather than something that dries up immediately and cakes onto the rock like the bird guano.” Merkel said the harbor seal colony hauled out to the south at Children’s Pool doesn’t smell as bad, in part because seals are smaller and don’t defecate as high on the rocks. “Principally the issues are not the waste itself, but where it’s deposited,” he said.

A sound solution? To control the problem, Harris said the city is considering some form of allowable harassment. In 1994, the Marine Mammal Protection Act was amended to

To control the growing problem of seals congregating and defecating on La Jolla Cove cliffs, the city is considering some form of allowable harassment. File include a process by which citizens can apply for authorization to coax marine mammals from an area via harassment, referred to as an Incidental Harassment Authorization. In 2009, the city considered a plan to disperse the seal colony at Children’s Pool by playing the amplified sound of dogs barking. “It’s not really what it sounds like,” Harris said. “(Harassment) is the technical term for just making them a little less comfortable with where they’re at. That might mean somebody moving through the area. It might mean a little bit of noise.” While Harris said the city has been advised that the oft-floated idea of building a barge offshore to attract sea lions from the beach would only attract more sea lions to the area, he said there are some biological remedies that could work. “We’ve been told that there’s certain kinds of native plants that give off an odor that the sea lions find objectionable,” he said. However, the city also has to consider whether coaxing the sea lions along would merely cause them to haul out at La Jolla Shores, Children’s Pool or WindanSea beach. “We may just be shifting the odor issue to some other neighborhood if we just do what the community is suggesting in

shooing these animals away,” Harris said. “It’s something that needs to be looked at a little bit more holistically, and in concert with a biologist and resource agency that we have in partnership on this issue.” In an e-mailed statement, Interim Mayor Gloria told La Jolla Light he is, “well aware of the ongoing concerns about the odor near La Jolla Cove.” “I am investigating mitigation options with various city departments and Councilmember Lightner’s office,” he said. Jill Esterbrooks, Lightner’s communications director, said La Jolla’s council representative is “pushing hard” for the formation of a coastal management plan her office would spearhead to “help address the proliferation of sea lions, seals and birds,” and will make it a budget priority. “We would be looking at best practices from other cities and municipalities up and down the California Coast who deal with the same issues (such as) Pacific Grove, San Francisco and Santa Barbara,” Esterbrooks said. “They all deal with seals and sea lions, so we’re looking to see what they do, how they manage it. “It’s a priority for Sherri, because we don’t want to see short term

solutions … We know that these animals continue to proliferate along our shorelines. It’s not going away.” Esterbooks said the city should have a decision on whether to remove the fence above La Jolla Cove within weeks. Some community members and business owners are advocating strongly for its removal, or to add a gate to it, so people can walk down onto the rocks at their own risk, deterring birds and marine mammals from congregating there. “The feeling is that even if folks were allowed to walk along there, that’s not going to deter the sea lions, because they’ve already established themselves and that’s already a haul out for them,” Esterbrooks said. Esterbrooks said obtaining permits from state and federal agencies to clean the sea lion waste “could take anywhere from six to eight months to two to three years … even if we could. “There’s only been like six exemptions that have been given … and those have all been (for) Scripps (Institution of Oceanography) and all these research institutes. “Maybe we’ll have a wet winter, which will help wash the rocks and the cliff sides,” she said. “If we have the high tides, that helps.”

From Venter, A1 (a path he grew bored with once he discovered genetics at UCSD). “Life is short,” he said. “We have a limited time to accomplish something, so speed is essential in trying to do things. … It would be a whole lot better for everybody if science went a whole lot faster. I argue that we should have 10 times the pace of discovery.” In “Life at the Speed of Light,” Venter discusses what he views as DNA and digital technology becoming rapidly interchangeable. “When we read the genetic code, I describe it as digitizing biology. … Now we can go the other direction. We can start with the digital code and re-create the DNA code from four bottles of chemicals,” he said. “In theory you can recapitulate all of life if you get back to the genetic code,” he said. “The implication for this is (that) we will be able to download biology from the Internet. … All of life as we know it can be sent as digital code through the Internet or as an electromagnetic wave.” Venter explained that experiments conducted with his colleague, Nobel Prizewinning microbiologist Hamilton Smith, show that chromosomes from one species can be placed into the recipient cell of another species, transforming the host species into what was described by the genetic code placed into it. “We’ve shown that if you change the software, you change the species — and this has lots of implications for evolution,” Venter said. “Evolution is very messy. So all these people who want ‘intelligent design’ need to look to the future and not to the

Pat Sherman past. … We’re defragging the genome by taking this messiness away and organizing genes by function in a logical way … for this future phase of evolution that we’re now entering.” Though most scientific breakthroughs are achieved by taking risks, it is difficult to get funding for risky, groundbreaking research, creating a catch-22 scenario, Venter noted. “The scientific establishment will try to steer you away from taking risks. NIH (National Institutes of Health) doesn’t take risks with funding. Most breakthroughs, every breakthrough that I’ve been associated

with, came from independent funding, not from government funding.” Venter recalled trying to obtain funding from NIH Director Francis Collins for his team’s proposal to sequence the human genome with the shotgun sequencing (aka shotgun cloning) method. “They were so certain that it wouldn’t work that even when we presented evidence that it would, a month before we published the paper, they still didn’t want to fund it,” he said. “But the second we published our paper, three government agencies stepped up to

Del Mar

give us all the money we could ever want to do this. So, you can’t get money to do the risky experiment that changes (things). Once you change the thinking, you can get all the money you want to follow up on it. We need to change that.” Asked by moderator Bingham if he felt President Obama had lived up to his promise to “restore science to its rightful place,” Venter said he believes the president’s main accomplishment in this regard was “when he got rid of the stem cell ban — just getting religion and science out of politics sent a strong message. “Since then, I’m not sure science has reached its rightful place … (where) science is no longer an option for society,” Venter added. “Our future is based 100 percent on science. And we have a huge group of people in Congress and in government that, being described as anti-intellectual, would be giving them too much credit. We can’t ignore science; we can’t ignore education. We can’t pretend the world’s not changing. “I was born in 1946. There are now three people on the planet for every person that existed the year I was born. … We can’t feed them. We can’t provide clean water. We can’t provide medicine or housing for them. And we’re destroying our environment in the process. Somehow sticking our heads in the sand is the solution (in) politics. “There’s more innovation in this country than anywhere else on the planet, but we have a system that’s trying to kill it off,” Venter concluded. “Countries come and go all the time throughout our history. What a sad thing if this becomes one of them that goes away because of the ignorance that’s enveloping it.”

Most detailed picture yet of key AIDS protein


fforts to create an effective HIV vaccine have been stymied by the virus’s envelope protein (known as Env) whose complexity has long made it one of the most difficult problems in structural biology. This formidable obstacle has been overcome by scientists from The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) and Weill Cornell Medical College. After engineering a more stable version of Env, they applied cryoelectron microscopy and x-ray crystallography to capture the first atomiclevel structure of the envelope protein. The data illuminates the complex process by which Env assembles and later undergoes radical shape changes during infection. The new ability to fully image the structure also defines sites of vulnerability that could be targeted by vaccines. — Findings appear in two papers in Science Express, the early online edition of the journal Science.

Monoclonal antibodies offer new HIV control approach A different team of scientists from TSRI and other institutions has demonstrated that a group of recently discovered monoclonal antibodies could be a new tool to control HIV. Previous research in mouse models found only a short-lived therapeutic effect from single antibodies, with the virus rebounding quickly. The current study showed an antibody (PGT121) – discovered and reported by TSRI in 2011 – can stay active for several weeks in rhesus monkeys affected by an HIV-like virus (the simianhuman immunodeficiency virus) – limiting the virus to low levels. This opens up the possibility of using PGT121 in combination with antiretroviral drugs now used to treat HIV. Antiretroviral drugs tackle the replicating virus, whereas

antibodies target the free virus as well as virally infected cells. Going forward, researchers plan to gain a better understanding of why PGT121 is effective against the virus, as well as exploring the effect of combining antibodies with existing drugs. — Findings appear in the journal Nature.

Economic boost of basic research Two UC San Diego spinoffs are among 100 companies cited in a report touting the economic payoff of federally funded university research. The report by The Science Coalition, “Sparking Economic Growth 2.0,” illustrates one of the many returns on investment of federally funded scientific research: The creation of new companies. Genomatica, a biotechnology company that grew from research conducted in Bernhard Palsson’s laboratory at UC San Diego, is working to transform the chemical industry by delivering new manufacturing processes that enable its partners to produce the world’s most widely-used chemicals from renewable feedstocks, with better economics and greater sustainability than petroleum-based processes. Initial support of the research

came from NSF and NIH grants totaling $2.2 million. Since its founding, Genomatica has raised $125 million in venture financing. Senomyx, a provider of flavor ingredients for the food and beverage industries, arose from research conducted by Charles Zuker at UC San Diego. The company has collaborative agreements with global food, beverage and ingredient supply companies, some of which are currently marketing products that contain Senomyx’s flavor ingredients. Eleven Senomyx flavor ingredients have received regulatory approvals in the U.S.; many of these have also been granted approval in additional countries. The Science Coalition is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization of more than 50 of the nation’s leading public and private research universities. Its mission: “Sustaining the federal government’s investment in basic scientific research as a means to stimulate the economy, spur innovation and drive America’s global competitiveness.” — News release at, more at Lynne Friedmann is a science writer based in Solana Beach.

Mayoral candidates pitch priorities to Newcomers Club

Referencing a book by economist Jane Jacobs, ‘Dark Age Ahead,’ Michael Aguirre said, ‘You can determine when you’re entering into the Dark Ages, not because there’s injustice, but because you don’t recognize what justice is anymore.’ Photos by Pat Sherman

David Alvarez, who serves on the City Council’s Budget and Finance Committee, said the city is ‘in a much better position than we were just a couple of years ago.’

Republican-turned-Democrat Nathan Fletcher, who also ran for mayor during the last election, said the Republican party has changed. ‘I changed and I’m comfortable with where I am, but what’s never changed is what I think you need in a mayor.’

Alvarez said he wants to assure that his children have the same opportunities he was afforded growing up in San Diego. “I really feel strongly that the next mayor will determine what that future will look like … and we’ve got a lot of work to do,” Alvarez said, though touting work he said the city council has done to restore some public services, such as hours at libraries and

recreation centers. “I’ve been working to make sure that we have a long-term water supply,” Alvarez added. “That’s the next big legacy project for the city — making sure that we actually have water available for future residents.” Aguirre, a former San Diego city attorney somewhat marred by the image of himself as abrasive and hard to work with, began by

acknowledging that perception with humor. “As city attorney I was known as a person that had a very low-key personality — ‘mild-mannered Mike,’ ” he joked. Aguirre said his top priority would be using the city’s $1.1 billion operating budget to protect San Diegans’ safety and security, including fire and police services. Aguirre said bad roads not only


cause wear and tear on vehicles, but “create liability for the city.” “When populations in communities don’t maintain their roads, that’s the canary in the coal mine that we’re in a period of decline,” Aguirre said. Aguirre, whose children attended The Bishop’s School, returned several times in his discussion to the subject of San Diego’s pension underfunding debacle — and an existing benefit structure known as the “double-dipping” Deferred Retirement Option Plan (DROP) that he believes to be in violation of debt limit and conflict of interest laws. There are still 17,000 former and current city employees that use the old DROP formula, he said. Aguirre alleged that the primary concern of current and former city council members and mayors was to “make sure that we fully funded their pension plans, so that they could get pensions as high as $300,000 a year.” “Pensions are not the only thing that we’re legally obligated to fund,” Aguirre said. “We’re legally obligated to fund the fire department; we’re legally obligated to fund the road repair; we’re legally obligated to fund the police. “Some of my opponents think it’s too dangerous not to fully


By Pat Sherman Three candidates running to replace disgraced ex-mayor Bob Filner in the Nov. 19 special election — Democrats Michael Aguirre, David Alvarez and Nathan Fletcher — fielded questions during a “First Fridays” breakfast organized by the La Jolla Newcomers Club, Nov. 1 at Bernini’s Bistro in La Jolla. Republican candidate and District 2 City Councilmember Kevin Faulconer was invited, though his scheduler told La Jolla Light he had a prior engagement. “We really wanted him to come as well, but he didn’t accept the invitation. I just wanted you to know that we made that request,” event co-chair Susan Wille told those in attendance. The three candidates attending each said public safety, neighborhood services and infrastructure are priorities for them, though they varied on their approach to fund and support these services. Alvarez, a former community organizer and native San Diegan who has represented City Council District 8 in southern San Diego for the past three years said that, as a child of immigrants, he often feels like newcomer.

You can pass a law that says we have to pay that much in pensions, yes, but you can’t pass a law that says we have enough money to pay (for them).” Aguirre said, later suggesting that labor is backing opponent Alvarez “because they want to control both sides.” “Our public officials are supposed to be guardians,” Aguirre said. “We’ve lost our way.” Nathan Fletcher, a former member of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves who last addressed the Newcomers Club while representing La Jolla in the 75th District state Assembly seat (20082012), also began by addressing some perceived baggage — his rapid shift in political parties from Republican to Independent to Democrat during and after his run in the last mayoral election. “Those of you that I represented know I was never a very good Republican,” Fletcher said. “I didn’t fit in very well. They changed and I changed and I’m comfortable with where I am, but what’s never changed is what I think you need in a mayor — that basic focus on solutions, that willingness to work with anyone, the ability to get folks to the table to work out an agreement to actually get the job done.” Fletcher, who has been endorsed

by Gov. Jerry Brown and Qualcomm co-founder Irwin Jacobs (Fletcher currently works at Qualcomm) added, “There’s no job out there, no political position out there that I would leave my current life for, other than mayor, because I think we have such a huge opportunity in our city over the next few years to really do some great things. “In the last year at Qualcomm I’ve learned a lot about how large corporations are run and managed,” he added. “I’m ready to put all of that to work for you, focusing on solutions.” Fletcher said San Diego has gone from having the eighth worst roads in the country to having the fourth worst roads. If elected, he said will be presenting a plan to the public by the end of 2014 to rebuild the city’s infrastructure and public services. When it was his turn to speak, Aguirre countered, “When my brother Nathan talks about financing plans, he’s talking about borrowing more money. They want to borrow their way out of this — fully fund the pension with your tax dollars, and then borrow 40-year money to pay for 10 years worth of road repair. All of you that have any kind of financial background know that you don’t pay for operating costs out of your capital.” Fletcher said that during the last two years 37,000 calls to 911 were

Alvarez, who serves on the City Council’s Budget and Finance Committee, said the city is “in a much better position than we were just a couple of years ago.” “We did some of the smart things that you and I would have done in our own household budget that the city had not,” he said. “That’s elimination of things that are wasteful, like cell phones for employees or travel that was unnecessary.” Alvarez also said he championed the elimination of phantom positions in the city meant to hide money in the city budget. “They fund positions in different departments that actually are never filled. They just exist there,” he said. “Then they claim that there are savings at the end of the year. Those savings could be achieved at the beginning of the year if you eliminate those vacancies.” Alvarez also said there are fees and costs that aren’t being recouped by the city, such as a “General Plan administration fee,” and fees for the use of Park and Recreation facilities. “We don’t, obviously want to make that something that’s not accessible to families in the community, but there are some fees associated with the use of some of our facilities in our parks, and we’ve gotta make sure that we are recouping those fees as well … instead of thinking about increasing general taxes.”

Following the debate, Newcomer Beryl Flom said she felt each candidate did well in his own way. “Mike always has a different perspective on things. I value that. And Fletcher is a dreamer and David is down in the trenches.” Retired Army Col. Mike Hill said that after the presentation he is likely to vote for Fletcher. “Leadership-wise and charisma-wise, Fletcher is very good. I wondered about how he mutinied from these political parties, but I guess he’s got a little bit of strong-willed independence to try and not always go the party line. I wasn’t sure what to think of that, but having watched him today I think he probably had honorable intent. “Sincerity-wise Alvarez is good,” Hill added, “but I think he’s still young and still (requires) a little more experience and maturation. Kevin (Faluconer), because he didn’t show up, just lost my vote — period.” Holland Smith said Aguirre was “the most articulate toward the problems that interest me,” while M.C. Eastman added that Aguirre “seems to be on the right track between honesty and transparency.” “He’s like the firefly, the gnat that keeps bugging you,” Col. Hill added. “I wish he were a newspaper guy, because you need that kind of stuff to keep the politicians halfway honest.”

At the Top of His Game Youth wins adult Monopoly tournament, collects $500 By Ashley Mackin ack Munson, La Jolla resident and 10-year-old Monopoly master, won the YWCA of North Orange County’s eighth annual Monopoly Tournament on Oct. 19. Oh, and the competition is for adults. The eldest player was 74 years old, but young Jack won the $500 first prize — in real money. Although he’s competed in many tournaments, Jack said this was his first time playing for a cash prize. “It was really cool and awesome (to win against adults). I liked it a lot because I’ve never seen a kid win a tournament,” he said. Jack won both of the qualifying rounds of the tournament, which were timed at 90 minutes each. When it came to the final round, he competed against last year’s winner and four other topscorers, bankrupting them all.

Let Inga Tell You

Snaking one’s way through the marital minefield


La Jolla Cultural Partners

hen my husband, Olof, asked me what I wanted for my birthday, I didn’t hesitate to request a top-of-the-line sewer auger. Now, this might suggest that the romance has gone out of the relationship or worse, could be considered a dismal metaphorical condemnation of our union. But no, I really, really wanted my very own sewer auger. We live in a house that was built by the lowest bidder after the war with all nonsquare corners and apparently without benefit of building materials that had become scarce during The Conflict. It is our only explanation for the shoddy construction. An abundance of pipeinvading trees and shrubs, not to mention a decade or so of Lego-flushing kids, kept us on speed dial to our local plumber. But often the problem was our kitchen sink, which could be cleared ourselves (that’s the royal “ourselves”) with a good sewer auger, which just happened to belong to our neighbors. They were very nice about lending it to us as needed but after a certain point, I began to fantasize about the luxury of having our very own.

You’d think Olof (the “ourselves” mentioned above) would have been deliriously happy with this idea but was instead horrified. He did not feel that a birthday auger augured well for our marriage. “Not a snowball’s chance,” he replied. “Besides, aren’t you the one who complained that your first husband got you stuff for your birthday that was really for him?” he said. “Yup,” I said, “Skis, and box seats to a Chargers game.” “And what happened?” he continued. “I’m now married to you,” I said. “Exactly. It is against the Code of Husbands to get a wife a sewer auger for her birthday,” he maintained. “But not if that’s what I want,” I said. “I didn’t ski, didn’t want to ski, and I hated football.” “I don’t know,” he said, shaking his head. “This wife birthday thing is fraught with peril. There’s nothing more terrifying to a guy except Valentine’s Day.” “But I’m serious,” I said. “It would warm my heart the next time the sink backs up on a Saturday night” — it’s always a

Saturday night — “that ‘we’ could just wheel in our Ferrari-of-seweraugers and have at it.” “This is a second marriage for both of us,” Olof reminded me. “I like to think I’ve learned something. Buying a wife a sewer auger for her birthday would be a ‘Inga,’ Olof said, exasperated. classic rookie husband mistake. I once bought ‘I can’t get you a hose caddy for my first wife a really your birthday any more than I expensive vacuum can get you a sewer auger.’ cleaner for her birthday.” “And what happened?” birthday!

The ceiling in the main dining room is filled with Japanese lanterns.

The sushi room allows for interactions with the chefs.

Bring the gang to hang at Bang Bang By Kelley Carlson here in San Diego can a person dance the night away under one of the largest disco balls on the West Coast, sample Asian street fare and find images of actor Ryan Gosling all over a bathroom stall? Bang Bang. Open since July in the Gaslamp Quarter, this social destination — a collaboration between El Camino Little Italy owner Mauricio Couturier and Voyeur co-founder/ partner Johnny Shockey — is an allencompassing experience, from the ambience to the food. The scene is relaxed when the doors open at 5 p.m., but once the doorman arrives around 9 p.m., it begins its transformation into a thriving nightclub. Guests enter Bang Bang by ascending a tunneled staircase that is evocative of a Tokyo subway, complete with sound effects. (An elevator is available for the physically challenged.) Those who desire a sit-down experience meander into the main dining room, which softly glows with oversized Japanese lanterns and color-projected anime characters. Along one of the walls is a full-service bar that offers sake and specialty cocktails, Flaming Punch bowls for sharing, beer and wine. The action is a bit more lively in the sushi room. With only 22 seats in the dragonthemed space, it’s easy for customers and chefs to develop a rapport. As the chefs slice and dice their way through sashimi and sushi rolls, “We provide a nice little show they (the guests) can watch,” said Chef Kappa, who heads the sushi kitchen.

W Ahi Poke and Ice Cream Salad is a mixture of arugula, wakame, avocado, cherry tomatoes, scallions, carrots, daikon and cilantro miso dressing that is topped with ahi poke, sushi rice ice cream and crispy nori seaweed.

The ‘RGT’ (Rosemary, Garlic, Tuna) Roll includes spicy tuna, cucumber, ahi tuna, ponzu, rosemary garlic oil, cilantro and pistachio. PHOTOS By Kelley Carlson

Bang Bang’s Crispy Kale, Orange and Grapefruit Salad During the late-night hours, pulsating music from the theater draws the dancers, as DJs spin club and techno tunes Thursdays through Saturdays, and a 5.5-foot-wide disco ball projects multicolored spots of light in every direction. Even the pop-culture-themed bathrooms in Bang Bang pique interest. The men’s room has stalls decorated with Godzilla, Bruce Lee and Voltron; in the ladies room, the decor ranges from fortune cookies and Hello Kitty to actor Gosling. When it comes to the fare, Bang Bang operates two kitchens, each delivering unique dishes. “Come open-minded,” Kappa said. The fish selection at the sushi bar is “at the top of the class, from all around the

world,” the chef touted, and it’s obvious in items such as the Chef’s Sashimi Platter. Kappa and his crew often cure the seafood to bring out the rich flavors. Traditional and specialty rolls are available, including the “RGT” (Rosemary, Garlic, Tuna) Roll, which includes spicy tuna, cucumber, ahi tuna, ponzu, rosemary garlic oil, cilantro, pistachio and garlic chips; and of course, there’s a spicy Gosling Roll with tempura shrimp, spicy tuna, jalapeño, yellowtail and chili aioli. When the new menu debuts this month, it will also include a Hello Kitty Roll, wrapped up in pink soy paper with tiny bay scallops on top, which is “cute and unique for the ladies to enjoy,” Kappa said; and an updated version of the Bang Bang Roll containing deep-fried asparagus, real crab, avocado, seared salmon, jalapeño and spicy ponzu pico de gallo. From the hot kitchen, Executive Chef Jose Ruigomez showcases playful Asian fusion food. One example is the Ahi Poke and Ice Cream Salad, a mixture of arugula, wakame, avocado, cherry tomatoes, scallions, carrots, daikon, cilantro and miso dressing that is topped with ahi poke, sushi rice ice cream and crispy nori seaweed. Ruigomez said he enjoys incorporating pastry techniques into his creations, after recently returning from an intensive yearlong cooking course in Spain. While guests can sit in the main dining and sushi rooms without paying a cover charge, occasionally there are ticketed events in the theater.

La Jollan rescues young diver near the Marine Room

La Jolla resident Beverly Bica and her service dog, Branson.

Ashley Mackin

By Ashley Mackin An early morning dog walk turned out to be a heroic venture for one La Jolla woman, who assisted a young diver in distress, saving her life. Beverly Bica said she was walking her service dog, Branson, in the early morning hours of Oct. 9, “That one stormy day we never get,” and while crossing the beach in front of the Marine Room, she saw a diver out in the water. Because of the predicted storm, she said, lifeguards were not out in that particular area. Bica said she noticed the diver (small enough in stature that she thought it was a young boy), couldn’t get to the beach with all the equipment on and kept getting knocked over by waves. Later determined to be a girl named Christina, Bica said, “I was watching and she would try to get out but she just kept being knocked down and the waves would pull her under.” She reported that Christina was wearing two oxygen tanks and joked that the equipment weighed more than the diver! “She was just not going to

make it in,” Bica said. “I didn’t really think about it … I didn’t do anything that any one of us wouldn’t do.” So she ran into the water with Branson and tried to release the diver from her gear, which proved to be a challenge as the tide was coming in and the waves were getting higher. Because the snap system was similar to that of Branson’s service vest, Bica said she was able to release the gear and help the diver out of her fins, which were firmly in the sand. Once the fins were off, she said, the diver was released. “She held on to me and I held on to Branson,” Bica said, and the trio made it the beach. Out of breath to the point of turning blue, Christina sat on the beach with Bica until she caught her breath. Bica later learned it was Christina’s first dive and that while she went out with her father and brother, they got separated. “I tried to assure (instead of admonish) her because you don’t want to break the spirit of a young girl … I didn’t want to ruin her love of

the ocean or discourage her from the beauty of the ocean and the Cove.” Bica brought Christina to her nearby home, made her some tea, and gave her some clothes, and then she walked her to the family car where she was able to later connect with her father and brother (who apparently were diving through the whole incident and didn’t realize Christina was no longer near them.) “You don’t think, you just do. This is how we treat our fellow man,” Bica said. A former volleyball player, surfer and swimmer, Bica was confident in her ability to get Christina out of the water. Bica has Sjogren’s syndrome, an autoimmune disease that attacks the muscles, joints and mucus membranes, often resulting in joint pain and swollen salivary glands. Saying that La Jolla is full of “humble” and “remarkable” people, Bica does not put herself on that list. She said she is not remarkable for what she did, although Christina’s family surely would.

Out with the old, in with the new at Seaside Home Seaside Home, 1055 Wall St., has begun a re-branding process that includes sale prices on its $4 million inventory to make room for re-setting the floor with merchandise more conducive to a high-end, service-oriented Studio of Interior Design. “The re-imagining of Seaside Home began with a merger of renowned La Jolla designer Kathleen Buoymaster’s Studio into Seaside Home, and the creation of a state-of-the-art interior design library in June 2013,” said owner Sheryll Jackman. “This was followed by affiliating with legendary interior designer Joanne Hutchinson, ASID, in August 2013. Together, we are embarking on an entirely new concept for the San Diego region — the creation of an all-encompassing servicecentered, concierge-level interior design destination in the heart of La Jolla.” The store was closed for one week to allow for staging and assertive pricing of its stock, and will officially reopen as Seaside Home, Studio of Interior Design in the beginning 2014. Meanwhile, Seaside Home will continue to service its clients with the quality furnishings that have established it as a fine home enhancement studio. More information at

From 10 Questions, B1 Debbie Ford, who lived in La Jolla. This made the move quite a bit easier. I arrived in La Jolla on Dec. 5, 2001 and found out that day that I was pregnant, so my whole life in San Diego has been as a mother! What might you add, subtract or improve in the area? I would like to see consistent bike lanes that don’t appear and disappear randomly. I’ve always said that bike riding in San Diego is a non sequitur — La Jolla is no exception. Who or what inspires you? I’m inspired by parents whose love for their children compels them to learn and grow as individuals, enabling them to be conscious and resourceful parents. I’m inspired by kindness, too. In the end, it’s the only thing that matters.

If you hosted a dinner party for eight, whom (living or deceased) would you invite? Hillary Clinton, Sheryl Sandberg, Osama bin Laden, Idi Amin, Mother Teresa, Wangari Maathai, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Tony Robbins, so he could help me manage all those personalities and shift some attitudes. What are your five favorite movies of all time? “Casablanca,” “My Left Foot,” “The Way We Were,” “The Constant Gardener” and “The Last King of Scotland.” What is it that you most dislike? That would be an obsession with “things,” and people whose selfabsorption keeps them small and immature. What is your most-prized possession? My 11-year-old son. Although he

would strongly disagree that he’s a “possession,” I like to delude myself that he’s mine until I have to let go! What do you do for fun? I do yoga, I hike, I beach-walk and I connect with friends. What is your motto or philosophy of life? In the end, only kindness matters. What would be your dream vacation? Attending cooking school in Tuscany in early September for two weeks, while my son learns Italian, and my husband gets to relax and drink great wine at the beautiful villa we are living in. Of course, we tour around Tuscany and Umbria every chance we get and pay homage to St. Francis of Assisi at the Cathedral — it’s one of the most peaceful and harmonious places in the world.

Author to share ‘Survival Lessons’ at Words Alive luncheon By Ashley Mackin Alice Hoffman, author of “Survival Lessons” (among many other novels, short fiction pieces and children’s books) will be keynote speaker at the Words Alive Luncheon, noon, Nov. 12 at the Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines, 10950 North Torrey Pines Road. Though less than 100 pages, “Survival Lessons” is filled with insights learned from Hoffman’s battle with breast cancer … and so much more. “ ‘Survival Lessons’ deals with trauma in general and examines ways to find beauty in the world even in the darkest times,” Hoffman said. “When terrible things happen most of us feel like victims, but even if we can’t change the circumstances — an illness or a loss — we can choose to change the way we react and respond.” Each chapter starts with a suggested choice — “Choose your heroes,” “Choose to enjoy yourself” and “Choose to share.” Hoffman’s works regularly earn acclaim, “Here On Earth,” was included in Oprah’s Book Club, and “Practical Magic” was adapted into a film of the same name starring Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman. A fiction writer, Hoffman said she never felt the need to write nonfiction until she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1998; she couldn’t find a book that spoke to her, so she wrote one. “Books were my life raft,” she said. “A big part of survivorship for me is being a reader and a writer.” Hoffman beat cancer and has a clean bill of health today. Patrick Stewart, executive director of Words Alive, said he is delighted to welcome Hoffman to the event. “She is one of America’s most prolific

In its Early Literacy Intervention program, for example, trained volunteers read to preschoolers from low-income communities. Words Alive also hosts Family Literacy Workshops that teach parents ways to make family reading time fun for everyone. Hoffman said her author’s advance from “Survival Lessons” would be donated to the Hoffman Breast Cancer Center at Mount Auburn Hospital in Cambridge, Mass.

Expensive expiration dates: When in doubt, don’t always throw it out


ome people interpret food “expiration” dates strictly to the letter of the law, tossing items the exact second they hit the date. This mentality, according to a recent study conducted by Harvard Law School’s Food Law and Policy Clinic called “The Dating Game,” costs American consumers roughly $165 billion a year by prematurely disposing of billions of pounds of perfectly safe to eat foods. Let’s clarify the murky world of expiration dates, with a side order of practical advice on food safety and shelf life.

Consumer Confusion Currently there is no uniform system for dating food items in this country, with only one federal requirement that baby food and formulas have an expiration date. So ultimately the consumer has to interpret the bevy of bewildering terms, including, “best by,” “use by” or “sell by,” then make a judgment call on when to ditch their food. Basically, conservative

dates are chosen by the manufacturer mainly to protect its brand and having little to do with food safety. “Best by” usually refers to the quality of a shelf-stable product like peanut butter, jam and ketchup. So a jar of spicy brown mustard that is stamped, “Best by September 2013,” is probably safe to consume, although the color, texture and flavor will likely be compromised compared to a jar marked, “Best by April 2014.” “Sell by” is an inventory code telling retailers when to pull the product from their shelves. “Sell bys” are typically used on perishables, like meats, fish, fowl and dairy products. Although you should not buy items passed the “sell by” date, if properly stored at home, you could stretch that date, and still enjoy safely after the fact. For instance, milk, or better yet buttermilk (which is sour anyway) when continuously refrigerated will probably last another week after the “sell by” date. When you see “use by” or “freeze by,”

again it’s probably a perishable item, and in this case you should consume or freeze by that date to avoid spoiling. But if the label says, “best if used by,” this gives a little wiggle room, as only the quality of the item is affected, not its safety. “Guaranteed fresh by” is the typical warning jargon for baked goods, but they are certainly safe to eat after that date, although passed their peak. Finally, “expires on” is a date that should be strictly adhered to. So if you choose to consume this item after the date — chow down at your own risk!

Dating tips If products are passed the “best by” or “sell by” date, you can always use the old school testing methods of seeing, smelling, touching (and in some cases tasting). If it has a peculiar odor, evidence of fur or freezer burn, or tastes off, then dump it. When shopping, look for the latest dates on items, even if you have to dig to the back (where the fresher ones are shelved). In any event, never purchase anything that is passed the date, and get into the habit of jotting down the date of purchase on all your food items from perishables to canned goods.

Extending expirations By following safe food handling and storage techniques, you will extend dates, waste less food and be kind to your wallet. At the supermarket pack perishables in ice and don’t lollygag — go straight home and refrigerate (or freeze) immediately. Once items are frozen, expiration dates are reset,

Keep refrigeration temperatures below 41 degrees Fahrenheit, and the fridge should not be left open for more than a few seconds or it’ll create an opportunity for spoilage.

La Jolla poet pens her first novel at age 93 By Ashley Mackin “You never know who you are living next door to, if you live in La Jolla,” said La Jolla resident and lifelong poet Doris Sutton. This notion, and a few others, inspired her first novel, “Romantic Tales from Old Mulvedania: Secret Stories of Royalty Never Meant to be Told.” Sutton, 93, held a book signing for the work on Oct. 20 at Warwick’s. She said she became fascinated with the idea of royalty after reading stories about deceased La Jolla resident, Alfonso de Bourbon, who claimed to be a descendent of Spanish royalty. “Nobody wanted him not to be royalty,” she said. “It got me thinking about who is living next door to you in this city.” That’s when she began creating characters. “I seem to write about people and they (in turn) write the story,” Sutton explained. Her “Romantic Tales” opens with journalist Margot Mara assigned to find the Crown Princess Victoria of Mulvedania, who was thought to be living in La Jolla at the time — her royal status unknown to most. Through the young reporter, the story of Victoria and Prince Charles of Mulvedania is told, including their travels throughout Europe and the United States, before settling in La Jolla. The romantic adventures around the world and surprising family secrets fill the pages. To avoid any legal issues, Sutton used her own family’s photos to illustrate the characters instead of buying images. Photos of Sutton and her husband, Paul, as Victoria and Charles, are on the cover. She uses her daughter Pamela’s likeness for Margot Mara. Sutton’s other daughter, Valerie, proudly declared that her likeness is the basis for two

As an additional precaution, Sutton invented the country of Mulvedania, and the language spoken there. She said has to muffle her laughter when people tell her they have visited Mulvedania. Sutton said writing the novel was a way for her to pass the time after suffering a stroke in 2011, which left her with limited walking ability. Calling on the typing

services of her caregivers, Sutton was able to come up with, and dictate, the novel while on bed rest. “It’s been wonderful,” she said. “I’m never bored.” Now that “Romantic Tales from Mulvedania” is done, Sutton is already halfway through writing her next book, which will be about French aristocracy in today’s world.


“France is overrun by titled people. It doesn’t mean they are rich or famous, but they still have their titles,” she said. Of her continued creative streak, Sutton reasoned, “When I was growing up, there were so darn many rules about writing a novel. When I had my stroke, I said phooey on them, I’m just going to write it.” — The novel, as well as Sutton’s books of poetry, are available at

Fun Facts About Monopoly ■ T he history of Monopoly can be traced to 1903 when an American, Elizabeth J. Magie Phillips, created a game through which she hoped to explain the single tax theory of Henry George. It was intended as an educational tool to illustrate the negative aspects of concentrating land in private monopolies. ■ By 1933, a board game called Monopoly had been created, which formed the basis of the game sold by Parker Brothers, beginning in 1935. ■ In 1941, the British Secret Intelligence Service created a special edition for World War II prisoners of war held by the Nazis. Hidden inside these games were maps, compasses, real money, and other objects useful for escaping. ■ The longest Monopoly game lasted for 70 straight days. ■ More than 275 million games have been sold worldwide and it’s available in 111 countries, in 43 languages. ■ T he most expensive version of the game was produced by San Francisco jeweler Sidney Mobell. Valued at $2 million, it features a 23-carat gold board and diamond-studded dice. ■ T he character locked behind the bars is called Jake the Jailbird. Officer Edgar Mallory sent him to jail. Source:

From Monopoly Whiz, B1 In addition to his cash prize, Jack took home the Monopoly board on which he played, signed by all his competitors. One of Jack’s competitors was Ken Curry, the author of “Monopoly Strategy,” which is currently on Jack’s nightstand. He read the book, competed against the author, and won. Jack, who has played the game with his family since he was 6 years old, said he always has the same strategy: Get the orange properties. “A lot of people think it’s just the luck of the die, but a lot if is actually about the trading,” he said. “My strategy for every game is to get the oranges (St. James Place, Tennessee Avenue and New York Avenue). Most people think the dark blues (Park Place and Broadway) are the best monopolies to get, but the oranges are.” His reasoning is simple. Jack says that the Jail space is the most landed-upon spot on the board, and six, eight, nine are the three most popular rolls of the dice. The orange spaces are six, eight and nine spaces away from Jail. Additionally, developing on these spaces is inexpensive, but the rent is high — especially if there are houses or hotels on the spaces. “I think the best spot on the board is New York Avenue because it’s the most expensive orange; you get the most money off it.” Jack implemented this tried-and-true strategy of collecting the orange properties during the tournament, and attributes it to the win. “In the tournament, I was in a pretty good position in the last round. I had Boardwalk and they really wanted me to trade, so they offered the oranges and they gave it to me and I won,” he said, adding “You never want to auction a property; you want to gather properties and trade.”

After the orange properties, the light blue properties — Oriental Avenue, Vermont Avenue and Connecticut Avenue — are his favorite because they are inexpensive. They are also six, eight and nine spaces away from the “Go” space. Another card up Jack’s sleeve is the fact that he has the property cards memorized, and knows if a player lands on New York Avenue with three houses, he or she will be charged $600 in rent — four houses, $800 rent; a hotel, $1,000. “I could go around the whole board,” he said. He also knows (without looking at the property information card) that on yellow spaces, houses are $750 each, so it would cost $2,250 to establish a hotel. He credits his father, Mike Munson, with teaching him about Monopoly. Mike Munson, a lifelong player, also competed in the Orange County Tournament, but had an odd streak of bad luck. “My dad is probably better than me, but in tournaments he gets really unlucky, which is really weird,” Jack said. His mother, Sandra Munson, said the family has several versions of the game. “We have the regular board, the (Nintendo) Wii version, the iPad version, an abbreviated version, a custom one for our family, and the deluxe fancy one. My husband has been a Monopoly fan his whole life and logged a ton of hours playing Monopoly with Jack.” However, the classic board game is still Jack’s favorite. “I don’t like the fancier version, like Monopoly Millionaire with the credit cards,” he said. With the original board, he added, “I know it. The only times I play anything but the original is on the Wii.” Despite the “1,000 hours” he’s played and allbut-guaranteed victories, Jack said the game is, and always will be, fun.

You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, this information can be obtained from one of the following three companies: LPS Agency Sales & Posting at (714) 730-2727, or visit the Internet Web site www.lpsasap. com (Registration required to search for sale information) or Priority Posting & Publishing at (714) 5731965 or visit the Internet Web site (Click on the link for “Advanced Search” to search for sale information), or at 1-800-280-2832 or visit the Internet Web site www., using the Trustee Sale No. shown above. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. P1067067 11/7, 11/14, 11/21/2013.

Two new art exhibits open Friday From Athenaeum reports

The Athenaeum will present its final exhibition of 2013, “Faiya Fredman: Domestic Collection Suggestions,” opening with a public reception, 6:30-8:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 8 at 1008 Wall St. Also on view through Dec. 28 is “Carried Away,” a visual response to the Athenaeum’s varied collections by recent UCSD art graduates Emily Grenader, Jessica Sledge and Joe Yorty. In “Domestic Collection Suggestions,” viewers will see that the toys, masks, and small sculptures that San Diego artist Fredman has collected and lived with over many decades, have come to constitute an imageworld that forms the background

for her life and artistic production. As she turns photographic attention to objects that have stood mutely in the background, they burst to life as though animated cinematically. The process of close attention and, in many cases, enlargement, seems to magically bestow personalities on small items that were formerly inert, and the often brilliant color fields in which they are set impart a subtly surreal aura. The library galleries are closed Mondays and Sundays, and open 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. TuesdaysSaturdays, and 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Wednesdays. For more details, call (858) 454-5872, or visit

which was way more than expected. Playhouse Director of Education Steve McCormick said the festival was “awesome!” One of the best of the 20-some performances was an experimental work called “Platonov” or “The Disinherited” (an adaptation of Russian playwright

Anton Chekhov’s first play) written by MIT Theater & Music Department Chair Jay Scheib, who also directed it. The play was preformed in a small, makeshift house built on the grass in front of Galbraith Hall on the UC San Diego campus near the “Stonehenge” Stuart Collection art piece. The audience was positioned on outdoor folding chairs in front of the stage This exciting, daring, and at times threatening, play has to be classed as a grand example of innovation in the tradition of directors like Anne Bogart or Joseph Chaikin. What was so unique was that it was both live theater and a movie at the same

time. Scheib was right there on stage in the middle of the action with his actors filming them up-close with a hand-held video camera. The result was projected in real time on a 35-foot screen above the stage. The audience had an unparalled opportunity to compare and contrast the story as a play and as a movie. Of course, the viewer’s eyes went back and forth between the real action on stage and the film above that was subtitled with the dialogue spoken below. It was like simultaneously being at Old Globe’s Shakespeare in the Park while attending a drive-in movie under the stars. The production made you think about why movies are so popular, while many
