Know what to do when they happen is key, officials say BY DAVE SCHWAB ocal experts say an earthquake and tsunami of the same magnitude as the one that ravaged Japan recently couldn’t happen here. But they were quick to add that doesn’t mean there isn’t cause to be concerned — or prepared — for a quake, particularly with San Onofre nuclear facility nearby, or a tsunami that might be generated. “We know there’s going to be another earthquake,” said Debi Kilb, Ph.D., a seismologist with Scripps Institution of Oceanography. “What we don’t know is whether it’s going to be today, tomorrow or a hundred years from now.” Statistics show every year approximately 500 earthquakes occur in California large enough to be felt. San Diego County, compared to other Southern California areas, has sparse seismicity. However, since 1984, earthquake activity in San Diego County reportedly has doubled over that of the preceding 50 years.

Image from UCSD’s quake information website shows the location of the Rose Canyon Fault (red line), which is relatively small and less active than the San Andreas Fault, which is about 100 miles from La Jolla as the crow flies, and the San Jacinto Fault, about 50 miles away. COURTESY OF UCSD And while the fault nearest La Jolla is the Rose Canyon Fault, it’s the least worrisome to Kilb who sees greater risks from the San Jacinto Fault that runs through Anza, east of Temecula, and the San Andreas, which runs from Point Arena to the Salton Sea.

As scientists like Kilb and Pat Abbott, emeritus professor of geology at San Diego State University, look at the quakes from their vantage points as to the whys and hows, city and county officials have to deal with what happens “when.”

Twin time

UCSD in La Jolla: Audrey Geisel In celebration of the 50th anniversary of UCSD, the Light has asked La Jollans for their thoughts on how the university has influenced or changed La Jolla. This week we hear from Audrey Geisel, wife of the late Theodor “Dr. Seuss” Geisel. In 1960, when Roger Revelle turned the first spade of earth on the bluff of Torrey Pines trees above the Pacific Ocean to create what would become UC San Diego, I had no idea of the tremendous effect this great university would have on La Jolla, or on Ted and me. One day, in 1995, I took Ted to look at Audrey Geisel that unusual-looking university library building, of which I was already enamored. He got out of the car and said, “You know, if I had ever strayed into architecture, I probably would have done something that looked somewhat like this.” Today Geisel Library is not only the iconic architectural heart of this distinctive campus, it is the intellectual heart of the university, serving thousands daily. UC San Diego has achieved so many astonishing things in education, research and innovation. I know the university will continue to make an extraordinary impact on this community, and the world.

Bird Rock crash case advances CiTy NeWs serViCe Jury selection was scheduled to begin Wednesday (after press time) in the trial of a man accused of crashing his car onto a La Jolla sidewalk and into a bakery, injuring three teens and two adults. Ronald Troyer, 66, is charged with felony reckless driving and hit-andrun charges, and three misdemeanor counts of driving on a suspended license. Troyer faces a maximum of 12 years in prison if convicted, Deputy District Attorney David Uyar said. Uyar previously told a judge that Troyer was convicted twice in 2005 for driving under the influence. He also has convictions in 2006, 2007 and 2008 for driving with a suspended license, according to DMV records. Troyer's blood was drawn at the hospital following the crash and test-

ed positive for the active ingredients in marijuana, according to earlier court testimony. A man who was riding with Troyer testified at an earlier hearing that the defendant hit a curb in a roundabout just before the 7 p.m. accident, sped up in anger and “floored it” while taking his hands off the steering wheel, thrusting the car onto the sidewalk in the 5500 block of La Jolla Boulevard and into the Cass Street Cafe & Bakery. One teenage girl was pinned under Troyer's car for a time and two teenage boys suffered broken bones, Uyar said. A man and his wife sitting at a window-side table at the bakery also were injured. Troyer allegedly tried to walk away and avoid responsibility after the crash, telling witnesses “someone stole my car.”

n a recent Saturday, 14 members of the grades 4-6 Gillispie School Choir attended the America Sings Festival in the El Dorado Park East Regional Park in Long Beach. The students performed three songs under the direction of music teacher Linda Jacobs. Later in the day, they

joined 800 other performers in a Massed-Choir Finale. America Sings was founded in 1988 by John Jacobson. His goal was to host noncompetitive, outdoor choir festivals throughout the country. In addition to performing throughout the day, choir members performed community service.

This year the 17 children’s choir groups from California and Arizona assembled “Kits for Kids” care packages for the Orange County Ronald McDonald House and made thousands of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for the Food Bank of Southern California.

In design, Safdie said she and Rabines try not to have any preconceived ideas of what a building should look or feel like. “When a building feels like it’s married to its site, that’s when you know as an architect that you’ve been successful,” she said. Rabines agreed, noting each site “has its own story to tell.” Safdie gave an example: “We had a client who loved birds and lived in a canyon, and we designed for them so

ture that is socially responsible and environmentally sustainable. ”Responsibility means not wasting the public’s money,” said Rabines. “And sustainable means planning to use a site in a passive way that doesn’t have to be showy or high-tech.” As an example, he cited how a home can be designed to take advantage of natural shade from trees. “There’s a proper way to catch the natural elements to cool or warm a house,” he said.

Both architects like working in La Jolla. “La Jolla has some houses that respond well to their sites: It’s very rich,” said Safdie. Rabines thinks the community has a bright architectural future. “There will be a lot of work restoring and renovating houses,” he said. “What we’d like to see is less (bulk) and more quality.” Tickets are $10 for Historical Society members, $15 for non-members.

UCSD working toward trolley’s arrival By Ioana PatrIngenaru UCSD Plans to bring a trolley line to UCSD are shaping up now that SANDAG has a route for the project. Currently, a group of staff members, faculty and students is working on plans for two on-campus stations. The line could be up and running by 2015 to 2017 and would serve close to 9,000 riders on campus. It will connect UCSD with Old Town, downtown and much of south San Diego County. Deciding on a route was crucial to allow the campus to proceed with planning, said Vice Chancellor Gary Matthews, who oversees UCSD’s facilities management and planning. The trolley will come into campus on an elevated line, following Interstate 5 and crossing Gilman Drive, then cutting through campus at Pepper Canyon. The line will curve around the Matthews Apartments and Warren Field, then follow Voigt Drive to enter east campus. The route will then follow Genesee Avenue to a new transit center at the

University City Towne mall. One station will be located at Pepper Canyon and would serve about 5,700 riders a day. Another would be located near The Preuss School and Thornton Hospital. It would serve about 2,000 riders, with trains arriving about every seven minutes. Campus officials will now focus on minimizing any impact the trolley line could have on sport fields and academic facilities, Matthews said. Members of the campus working group shepherding the project already made a significant contribution, said Brian Gregory, assistant vice chancellor for strategic campus resource initiatives. They suggested that the trolley use an elevated route instead of running at street level or underground. The trolley will provide faculty, staff and students with sustainable transportation and greatly reduce the campus’ carbon footprint, Matthews said. It will also give members of the UCSD community transportation options in an

era of fluctuating gas prices, he said. The project also will have a positive impact on The Preuss School, said Matthews, who sits on the charter school’s board. Transportation costs are Preuss’ second-biggest expense, after salaries, running at about $900,000 to $1 million a year. Many Preuss students live south of Interstate 8. Instead of riding school buses, high

school students will be able to hop on at trolley stations and have more direct access to their school, said Matthews. The new trolley line comes with a $1.2 billion price tag. Half of the money will come from a half-cent sales tax approved by voters in 1987. To finance the other half, SANDAG plans to apply for funds from the Federal Transit Administration, officials said.

A ‘twist’ found in tumor metastasis Cancer Cell. News release at

Research Report by Lynne Friedmann A transcription factor called Twist1 plays a key regulatory role in how the human embryo assumes form and function. Normally suppressed after embryogenesis, Twist1 can re-emerge later in life and promote the spread of cancer. Researchers at the UCSD School of Medicine have identified Twist1 in the formation of invadopodia (“invasive feet”) in tumor cells. Invadopodia are tiny protrusions of tumor cells that extend into the extracellular matrix of surrounding connective tissue and fibers. Invadopodia concentrate enzymes that degrade the matrix so that tumor cells can break away and metastasize. Previous studies have linked the expression of Twist1 to many aggressive, solid-tumor cancers, including melanomas, neuroblastomas, as well as breast and prostate cancer. The findings appear in the journal

How long do stem cells live? Bone marrow (stem cell) transplants don’t always succeed because transplanted stem cells don’t live long enough or because they proliferate too well, leading to leukemia. To help determine how long a bone marrow graft will last, researchers at Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute have developed a mathematical model that predicts the lifespan of a stem cell and tested those predictions in a mouse model. It has long been assumed that stem cells are immortal. But researchers found that each stem cell is pre-programmed to selfrenew only for a set amount of time that, in mice, ranges from a few months to several years. Use of a computer model to calculate how long a blood stem cell will live may lead to better prediction of the outcome of bone marrow transplants. The study appears in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. News release at Primordial soup gets spicier Stanley Miller gained fame with his 1953 experiment showing the synthesis of organic compounds thought to be important in setting the origin of life in motion. Five years later, he produced

samples from a similar experiment, shelved them and, as far as anyone knows, never returned to them in his lifetime. More than 50 years later, a researcher at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UCSD discovered these samples and, using techniques not available to Miller, suggests that a diversity of organic compounds existed on early Earth to an extent scientists had not previously realized. The new findings support the case that volcanoes — a major source of atmospheric hydrogen sulfide today — accompanied by lightning converted simple gases into a wide array of amino acids, which are were in turn available for assembly into early proteins. Researchers also found that the amino acids produced in Miller’s experiment are similar to those found in meteorites. This supports a widely-held hypothesis that processes such as the ones in the laboratory experiments provide a model of how organic material needed for the origin of life are likely widespread in the universe. The findings appear in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. News release at eXK3m3. — Lynne Friedmann is a science writer based in Solana Beach.

Report out on Scripps building A draft environmental report for the proposed Marine Ecosystem Sensing, Observation and Modeling Laboratory (MESOM) project at Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) is available for public review and comment until April 4. The $26.5 million project is a new multidisciplinary program at SIO for the long-term observation of ocean ecology off the California coast. The proposal calls for a three-story, 21,300-square-foot building, which would be divided into 12 laboratories, 56 offices and three conference rooms. The facility will develop physical, biological and chemical sensors and the ocean-going platforms to support them. The project has met with some opposition, as some La Jolla Shores residents argue the area is becoming saturated with structures that are destroying the ocean views. The document is posted at http://physicalplanning. This public review period allows the document to be circulated and comments received before the planned Coastal Commission hearing on April 13-15.

Ethics Center partners with CONNECT The Center for Ethics in Science and Technology is joining with CONNECT to expand San Diego’s participation in considering the ethics of new science and technology.

developed that will share just such facts. The first one, now in the final design phase, will show “Species Found along the La Jolla Coast.” Nigella Hilgarth, executive director of the Birch Aquarium, is especially excited about “interpreting ocean life for our visitors.” The project, she said was “inspired by people at the La Jolla Community Foundation who love the ocean. They invited us to get involved.” The panel, approximately 36 by 24 inches in size atop a metal stand designed to resist the elements, will be situated along the walkway overlooking the beach south of Scripps Pier and placed so it won’t interfere with the view or the buildings. Its colorful photos will highlight birds, sea life such as the grunion that frequent the coastline when they spawn and even the giant kelp that sits off the shore. “People don’t realize what’s inside the kelp forest,” Hillgarth said. “We have our own rain forest just offshore.” While the first one has been approved by UCSD officials, others are in the planning stages, said Buzz Woolley, a community foundation board member who is spearheading the effort. They’re working with city and Coastal Commission staff to be sure they follow all appropriate regulations, he noted. Woolley and Hillgarth envision a series of 10 to 12 panels, placed along the coastline from Scripps to Bird Rock. “We’ve brainstormed other ideas,” Woolley said. “We want to reach out and are open to other ideas.” And, he added, there’s no reason they can’t continue into Mission Beach, although someone else would

As the concept develops — and donors step forward to help cover the estimated cost of $5,000 for each panel — the Birch and the foundation will draw on the expertise of the “several hundred scientists” at SIO for the information the signs will impart. Woolley said the panels are a great way for the Birch and SIO to reach beyond the campus and the aquarium. “A lot of people don’t get to the aquarium, but think how many people — visitors and La Jollans — walk along the beach,” he said.

VOICE OF THE VILLAGE Have you planned an evacuation route out of La Jolla in case of earthquake, fire or tsunami? “The news is not very clear about what I should do. When the (tsunami) scare first arrived I was really freaked out and I was trying to evacuate but everybody told me I was just being crazy.” — Vanessa Wyatt

“I’ve thought about it, though at this point in time I haven’t done anything.” — Bob Newsome

“No. We’re not concerned.” — Steven Gloor

“No. Yeah, I am concerned. I was thinking about it last weekend. I don’t know what I’d do in case of evacuation — we’re kind of bounded by a peninsula.” — Ted Molinski

“I’m not worried about it because I think with the technology today you get enough warning, you can get to higher ground. It doesn’t take much to get up on the hill. There’s plenty of time for people to get away.” — Murray Helm

FROM QUAKES, A1 In La Jolla, which has a fault running right through it, residents should be particularly attentive to potential evacuation routes, they said. An evacuation plan is in place for all areas of the city in the event of an earthquake, tsunami or other natural disaster, said Donna Faller, program manager for the city’s Office of Homeland Security. “It has all the major ingress and egress routes for all the quadrants of the city,” she said, adding, “You can’t predetermine exact routes. But you can preidentify possible locations where you want people to stage.” Assistant Police Chief Boyd Long, who used to head the Northern Division which would be in charge of evacuating La Jolla during an emergency, discussed why people need to be educated about where to go during a crisis. “Access points (south on La Jolla Boulevard to PB, north onto La Jolla Parkway and Genessee Avenue to I-5 and east over Soledad Mountain Road to PB) are limited,” he said. “For a failsafe, I would encourage people to make sure they know each of those exit points out of La Jolla: Don’t rely on any one of them.” In La Jolla, there has been no organized effort to develop a community-level evacuation plan that would enlist volunteers, according to several people who were asked about such an effort. Lifeguards, who worked

The regular Friday morning Cove swimmers were joined by a number of spectators March 11 around 8:30 a.m. who were curious to see if a tsunami would arrive, following the magnitude-9.0 earthquake in Japan. KATHY DAY Map’s blue areas indicate potential tsunami inundation zones. Emergency officials used the maps “to focus their response” to the Japanese event, according to the state Department of Conservation website, from which this map was obtained. COURTESY

with fire and police on the quake-tsunami portion, discussed the plan about a year ago with La Jolla Shores Association board members, said Erin Demorest, aide to Councilwoman Sherri Lightner. Perhaps, said one person, a more La Jolla-specific effort would be something for the Town Council to take on. Geologist Abbott, who is the go-to source for San Diego media when a quake gets

our attention, said places like Japan have the most severe quakes because they’re on the tectonic plate boundaries where the ocean floor is being pulled beneath the continents. That, he said, results in a “buildup of a huge amount of energy buckling the seafloor, causing huge earthquakes with energy being shoved into the water that generates the tsunami.” Kilb added more detail about the difference: “Our primary faults (San Andreas, San Jacinto and Elsinore) run parallel to one another northwest to southeast and are of the strike-slip variety,” she said. They act like “sliding closet doors moving back and forth,” typically generating less severe quakes when they happen, she added. Another reason for the smaller magnitude quakes here is that they are “rela-

tively shallow, she said, noting that while our faults are similar in length to those in Japan ours are at about 30 kilometers, compared to Japan where the faults are 300 kilometers deep. That also helps explain why a tsunami like the one in Japan is less likely in Southern California, she added. “A tsunami requires three elements: a big quake, a shallow quake and a large body of water. We only have two of the three — we’re missing the large body of water in relation to most of our faults, which are farther east.” Even so, she said, a large quake along the San Andreas could trigger an offshore landslide that could displace the ocean water and thus a tsunami. And we can’t forget our area is sunject to the effects of tsunamis generated to the east. Abbott outlined the Rose Canyon Fault, which “runs 5 miles offshore of San Onofre nuclear facility, then comes onshore just south of La Jolla Parkway, then bends and goes down Rose Canyon past the east side of Mission Bay.” He noted “San Onofre was designed to withstand a 6.5 magnitude quake with a safety factor raising it to 7.0. But it might be prudent to reexamine that engineering to see if there’s any weak spots or vulnerability in the system. It’s not a new facility. Are there any upgrades that are needed?” Ongoing field and laboratory studies suggest the largest credible earthquake predicted for the coastal and metropolitan areas is a M7.2 on the Rose Canyon Fault and a M7.6 from either the Elsinore Fault or the San Jacinto Fault in the North and East County areas, according to the county’s Office of Emergency Services website.

They’ve been fairly quiet as neighbors, although a lot of people have passed through.” Last week, Stephen Cyfzkiewicz, owner of Crowne Builders in Coronado, closed escrow on the property. He said Monday he’d been in talks with Blakely for a few months prior to purchasing the property. “I’m definitely not tearing

was a good kid. He befriended all these drug addicts, and they just took over his life. Pretty soon, they were actually running the place.” “In some ways this gives him (Blakely) a second chance,” said his wife. “Whether he’ll take it …” Courtney Bell, now a teacher, said Dan Blakely and his late mother Nan were both “good-hearted” people always willing to give troubled people a warm meal or a temporary place to stay. “They were always very kind,” she said. For months, neighbors compiled a laundry list of complaints including illegal drug use and sale on the premises, building a case

against the landlord they claimed had been operating for years as a lodging/rooming house in likely violation of San Diego Municipal Codes. Eighteen neighbors subsequently banded together with the cooperation of San Diego Police, First District Councilwoman Sherri Lightner and Supervisor Pam Slater-Price and a host of governmental agencies to bring a consolidated legal action against the property owned by the Blakely Nan M. Trust in a nuisance lawsuit heard in Small Claims Court Jan. 31. A judgment of $136,000 was returned for neighbors a couple of weeks later, just prior to the property’s being set to be sold at public auc-

tion March 18 due to nearly $7,000 owed in back taxes. But the taxes were paid and the sale closed several days before the scheduled auction. Trudeau said Blakely had a cavalier attitude about his property. “He was really laissez-faire about the whole thing,” he said. “I don’t think losing it really meant much. He thought, ‘I’ll file this appeal: No big deal.’ Then he realized it was a losing battle, and the tax sale was coming. He kind of like was, ‘I can’t believe my neighbors didn’t come and talk to me.’ I said, ‘You’ve just got to be kidding me: We’ve been talking to you for 10 years. You’re just not listening.”

Mickey Stern donates toward Riford Center upkeep Mickey Stern, a 20-year member of The Riford Center, recently pitched in to help fix up the adult community center’s four restrooms, according to a press release. She gave a “generous gift” and enlisted Kathleen Buoymaster of Kathleen Buoymaster Interior Design and Pacifico Builders for construction. “Every nonprofit organization has needs that must be addressed and they frequently don’t have the necessary funds. I hope my example of coming forward

and offering to help, will inspire others to do the same,” Stern said in the release. Glen M. Rasmussen, chair of the board of directors, thanked Stern for her generosity and noted “the new restrooms coordinate beautifully with our ongoing efforts to make The Riford Center a comfortable and attractive place for our members to enjoy.” The Friends of The Riford Center operates the center at 7811 La Jolla Blvd. For information on programs, go to

Embedded in the perimeter is the inspirational quote from Henry David Thoreau: "What lies before us and what lies behind us are small matters compared to what likes within us. And when we bring what is within out into the world, miracles happen."

Students touch the different types of glass.

Match Day for UCSD med students Forget St. Patrick’s Day. March 17 was Match Day for 127 UCSD School of Medicine students who opened envelopes revealing where they will serve their residencies. The event is a medical school tradition across the country, which draws parents, family members and loved ones to watch as the students find out what the next step is on their road to becoming doctors. Among them learning their assign-

ments were: n Ben Johnson (radiology), was born in West Virginia and grew up in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. He entered UCSD’s med school after college and spending time with Teach for America. He went to Uganda last summer with “Imaging the World” to help with a pilot project providing remote access to ultrasound services. He is heading to Stanford. n Michael “Fuj” Fujinaka (anesthesiology) grew up on a vegetable farm in

Spector to head Salk communications office

Stockton and, while a medical student, created the nation’s #2 best-selling medical app “iMurmur.” He already has completed a trauma surgery rotation in Johannesburg, South African and a cardiology rotation in Hawaii; was a co-manager of the UCSD Free Clinic; and will soon be in a rural medicine rotation, treating villagers in Northern India and Nepal. He will stay in La Jolla for a residency with UCSD Health System.

The Salk Institute for Biological Studies announced the appointment of Stacie Spector who has joined the staff as the chief communications officer. Spector has served in similar communications capacities in the political, academic, research, business, and non-profit sector. In 2004 she was recruited to be associate vice chancellor for communications at UCSD overseeing communications, media relations, publications, special events, marketing, VIP tours and state government relations and advocacy. A graduate of Columbia University and a California native, she has served as deputy campaign manager for the re-election campaign of Senator Tom Harkin and as deputy communications director for President Bill Clinton's re-election and overseeing all events for the 1997 Presidential Inauguration. She held the post as White House deputy director of communications and deputy assistant to the President during President Clinton's second term. She also worked with Vice President Al Gore as his deputy campaign manager.

around the world, from many backgrounds and with much to contribute. But we’re more than that. We’re a place that’s home to surfers and young families, retirees and owners of businesses large and small. And La Jolla is still an international draw for tourists, as well as for San Diegans coming to see our seals. What does that mean for our community and business leaders? As La Jolla has evolved — and faced the economic downturn of the past few years

— have we lost sight of whether merchants are meeting the needs of residents as well as tourists. Are La Jolla residents leaving town to shop elsewhere because their needs aren’t met in the shops of the Village, Bird Rock or the Shores? What would keep them here? We know the days of the town lumber store and garden shop are probably gone, but what is it that residents want? A children’s shoe store? A Crate and Barrel or a cookware store akin to

Sur La Table? Would they like to have inviting public spaces where they could while away a few hours, stopping for a bit to eat at a sidewalk café or listening to music along the way? Could it be that our community needs to find its niche again? Here’s our challenge: Let’s step back and talk about a vision for La Jolla’s future. What’s it going to take to reinvent La Jolla? We’re asking you.

Off-leash dogs a matter of law, courtesy COmmunitY ViEW

Phyllis Pfeiffer Publisher

by dale s. duffala La Jolla

Jamaica Grace’s letter in the March 10 edition regarding Joe Parker’s column on March 3 contains several factual and logical errors. Mr. Parker’s column was about unleashed dogs in Calumet Park, which is not a dog park, as she states. … Apparently, increased enforcement by Animal Control has re-

sulted in fewer off-leash dogs in the park. Unfortunately, however, it appears that irresponsible dog owners are now congregating in Bird Rock Park, which is also plainly posted at every entrance with signs requiring dogs to be leashed. … Dog feces left behind on the athletic field present a safety, health, and aesthetic hazard to the children attending Bird Rock Elementary School. Mr. Parker’s column also addressed unleashed dogs

on the bike path. I have been chased, barked at, growled at, and had my heels nipped at by unleashed dogs. Most owners have been reasonable about controlling their dogs, after I said something to them, but others have been confrontational. Unleashed dogs on the bike path are a direct danger to bicyclists, regardless of whatever “freedoms” Ms. Grace feels have been taken away. Unlike Mr. Parker, who has lived in La Jolla since


LJ Charm: Blowin’ in the wind? For two centuries, La Jolla has had a claim to being a mini Shangri-la, a place with special endowment. How did this come about? In the early 1800s, a group of San Diegans came to vacation. Soon there were little cottages, quaint mom-andpop stores, a dance pavilion, an art colony, great parties and unprecedented camaraderie. La Jolla’s charm became widely known. Or could it have been that the mythological Sea Sprite, Etheria, cast a magical spell over the area. It was a pleasure to shop in the Village and a joy to live here. Among the factors that brought the biggest changes were WWII with its returning veterans, UCSD, Salk Institute, and others that brought notoriety but great diversity which was not so kind. For the sake of brevity, let us say that Neptune, Greek god of the oceans, not to be outdone by a mere sea sprite, pushed an enormous, vaporous hand to scrape bare the hills and the mesa to the city limits. That area was quickly covered with high rises, hotels and shopping malls.

1968, I have lived in La Jolla since 2007. Does that make my opinion any less valid? I think not, because it is more than an opinion — it’s a matter of law and common courtesy. The Municipal Code requires dogs to be on leashes in these three areas, and it is simple for people to follow the law. Unfortunately, it is the fewer belligerent, confrontational dog owners who have made it necessary to enact such ordinances. Additionally, even before

Mr. Parker became president of the BRCC, he demonstrated that he has the community’s interests at heart, not his own. He is carrying on a tradition of community service that was firmly established by his predecessor, Mr. Joe LaCava. Even though I’m relatively new to Bird Rock, I am glad to live in a community with such dedicated and selfless leaders. Ms. Grace’s misstatements about Mr. Parker’s intentions represent the essence of self-centeredness. I believe that she owes Mr. Parker an apology.

COmmunitY LEadEr'S ViEW

Shopping in the Village lessened. Big business began to buy up the market places and rents soared. Developers bought huge sections of land and brokers drooled. This was the beginning of what many called “the raping of La Jolla.” Higher rents brought higher prices. People said La Jolla was too expensive. Our challenge today is to keep and enhance the charm that still exists. Perhaps Etheria will cast another spell over the area, but she probably moved up the coast where the rents are lower.

Praises for LJES I just returned from a wonderful program called "Readers are Leaders" at La Jolla Elementary School. Kudos to Principal Donna Tripi for bringing community members into her school to talk about the importance of reading — and then having the pleasure of sharing our favorite books with delightful elementary school children. I can't think of a better way to involve the community in our local schools. Brian Miller President, GePPetto's inc.

Planners face challenges, opportunities to be better by Joe lacava President, La Jolla Community Planning Association

In writing my last column as president of the La Jolla Community Planning Association (LJCPA) I reflected on what we have accomplished over the past three years. I offer some parting thoughts to the trustees and the community on continuing that good work. First and foremost honor the responsibility that comes with the city empowering the LJCPA to be the official voice on land use for La Jolla. Never forget that LJCPA’s credibility and integrity is always at stake. Being a trustee is hard work and it should be for your actions have a

profound effect on applicants as well as La Jolla’s quality of life. Be neither intimidated nor cavalier to the applicant’s expense of going through the LJCPA process. Be helpful to applicants, they will reward you by working harder to gain approval. Be prepared — your meetings will be more productive. Collaborate with city staff, a positive relationship benefits the LJCPA and La Jolla. Continue the LJCPA’s tradition of consistently rising to the challenge of difficult issues and debates as well as the ordinary. Continue making open and informed decisions. Expect to be tested by regulations (conforming to a multitude of rules and policies), volume (over 100 projects per year), diversity (over 40 individuals with varying backgrounds), and high expectations (preserving La Jolla’s high quality of life and economics).

market would disrupt neighborhood

manager will make market work

By Carole BalComBe Upper Hermosa resident

ChuCk BuCk La Jolla One piece of good news about the proposed Farmer’s Market that might open its booths in the front of La Jolla United Methodist Church off La Jolla Boulevard is its market manager Catt Fields White. Although I personally met her once at her flourishing Farmer’s Market in Little Italy — and it was happenstance — I have followed her successes with the Farmer’s Market in North Park and the one on Adams Avenue. I have been most impressed with her vision, dedication and her attention to detail. In fact, when we met, she was wrangling a trash bag on Date Street, the site of her “Little Italy Mercato.” She reminds me of the late opera impresario Rudolph Bing with her sense of time and place. And that’s what makes me feel confident about the Farmer’s Market she’s proposing for Bird Rock. It will, I fully expect, be appropriate in terms of its size, space and access. Those are important considerations. But the big story here is what it will mean in terms of sorely needed revenue for Bird Rock Elementary and Muirlands Middle Schools. Besides helping the schools, the Bird Rock Farmer’s Market will benefit local farmers and growers. Just imagine the pungent aroma of fresh herbs and flowers and the colorful displays of fresh fruits and vegetables. And coming at 4:30 in the afternoon on a Friday is bound to be a welcome way to begin the weekend with neighbors and enjoy farm-to-table produce while, at the same time, helping to raise money for the kids’ schools. Actually, just couldn’t get much better. It just needs more support from folks like me.

I am writing to express my concerns and dismay at the proposed Bird Rock market at Mira Monte Plaza and La Jolla Hermosa in Upper Hermosa. I live on Beaumont Avenue close to the La Jolla United Methodist Church and will be severely impacted by the market. I never expected that a commercial enterprise of such scope would be located near my home. The quiet, relaxed nature of my environment is going to be disturbed every Friday from noon to 8 p.m., with traffic from vendors and shoppers. My street will become a parking lot, as the access to the proposed parking area between my house and the church (in the alley) is very difficult and shoppers will park wherever it is easiest and quickest. I'm told that most people will walk or cycle. That always seems like a good idea, but in reality when you're short of time, or live in Bird Rock or plan on purchasing many items, it is more convenient to go by car. This commercial venture is too large to operate in Upper Hermosa. It will consist of 40 to 60 vendors, with a projected 400 to 600 shoppers and necessitate the closing of Mira Monte Plaza and La Jolla Hermosa, greatly impacting the residents who live on this street. The proximity to La Jolla Boulevard is also worrisome because of increased traffic and shoppers looking for parking spots. Serious accidents have occurred on La Jolla Boulevard in this location. I understand and support the wish to raise funds for Bird Rock Elementary, especially as my children attended the school. I have always supported other activities in my neighborhood, such as the 4th of July Parade and the Halloween festivities. I hope that the community will listen to the concerns of those residents who live closest to the proposed market and who do not wish to have their lives disrupted in this way.

From laCava, a18 challenges to your procedures and your decisions. If mistakes are made, real or perceived, always err on the side of caution; continue to react quickly to acknowledge, correct and then move on. Welcome criticism and complaints as every organization needs feedback on how it is doing its job. Use that feedback to continually improve LJCPA’s service to the community. Strive for timely meetings and efficient project reviews but avoid

cutting short speakers; meetings are a forum for participation not a test of public speaking skills. To the community, continue to send us your thoughts, Better yet, attend the LJCPA’s monthly meetings and be a part of the conversation. My parting gift is an expanded website at http://www.lajollacpa. org where trustees, applicants, event organizers, the city, the media and the community can find information about La Jolla land use issues and processes.

Margaret M. “Margie” Ross 1917 – 2011

Margie Ross was born in Canada on June 28, 1917. She was the spunky, determined, loving and proud daughter of a Scottish Mother. The family moved to the Northern US where she grew up. Margie adored her adopted country and proudly became a citizen. Celebrating the 4th of July was a must for her. Margie married William “Bill” Ross. They moved often, from Buffalo, NY, to Birmingham, AL, to Winnetka, IL, to name a few. Sometimes they moved on 48 hours notice with their Cocker Spaniel in tow. Margie became involved wherever they went. She was particularly proud of working with returning soldiers in Birmingham Hospital during the War. In 1955, Margie and Bill moved to La Jolla Shores. Margie got totally involved with Gillespie Children’s Center, Republican Women, YMCA, La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club and the Social Service League to name a few. They loved the Shores as well as their home in Borrego where they played golf well into their 80s. Friends, trips and cruises consumed their retirement. Always on the go, Margie made lifelong friends everywhere. Children and animals held a special place in her heart, as did her friends who were her “adopted family”. With joy in her heart and stories to tell, Margie lived a full life. She passed away at 93+ on March 10, 2011. Margie was preceded in death by her husband, Bill, and is survived by her adored Himalayan cat, Susie. Services have been held. Please sign the online guest book at obituaries.

La Jolla Hoopers capture four titles By Phil Dailey The La Jolla Hoopers recently wrapped up their winter season, which proved to be a successful one for several of the teams. "Seven of our 11 team played in championship games, of which four of them ended up winning division championships," said TJ Brown, the director of Hoopers basketball. Much of the success has been directly related to the growth of the program. Brown

said they will have about double the turnout (about 110 kids) during the next session. "The growth has been tremendous," Brown said. Among the teams capturing league titles were the 12-and-under A team, the 11-andunder A team, the 13-and-under B team and the girls' 5th and 6th grade team. For more information on the Hoopers, go to or contact Brown via email at

Susie Spanos charges ahead with efforts to improve people’s lives Susie Lucas Spanos of La Jolla, is a fifth-generation Californian and volunteer extraordinaire. She sits on the governing board of the San Diego Blood Bank and is the driving force behind the San Diego Chargers Blood Susie Spanos Drive and Fashion Show. Spanos is also on the board of Charger Champions and the foundation that together provide financial support to youth, education and health programs. She was named Woman of the Year by the San Diego Leukemia Society for her efforts to help save lives. She was named a Women of Dedication by the Salvation Army and a Most Valuable Philanthropist. Spanos has also given years of service to the San Diego Museum of Art and chaired Art Alive, which set a record for attendance one year with 17,000 guests. When she chaired the San Diego Zoo fundraiser, the event’s proceeds also set records. Spanos has given her time and talents to the boards of San Diego State University, the San Diego Women’s Foundation and the St. Germaine Child Abuse Prevention Foundation. She has been a trustee at the University of San Diego, on the Parents Council at Wake Forest University, and an advisory member of Las Patronas. She and her husband, Dean, have two sons, Alexander and John. What brought you to La Jolla? When our family got controlling interest of the San Diego Chargers in 1984, we relocated to San Diego. We fell in love with The Evans School and bought a house about two blocks away. What makes this area special to you? What makes the area so special are the great people who live here. They are interesting, intelligent, generous, kind and fun. If you could snap your fingers and have it done, what might you improve? If I could improve anything in my area it would be the parking and the potholes in the roads.


Vintage vehicles take center stage at La Jolla’s annual car show April 1-3

ABOVE: A road rally will be part of the 7th annual La Jolla Motor Classic’s events from April 1-3. LEFT: Attendees will be able to see vehicles upclose at the main event on Sunday, April 3. FILE BY DAVE SCHWAB he seventh annual La Jolla Motor Car Classic remains a classy exhibition of vintage automobiles, but this year’s installment at La Jolla Cove will be the first weekend of April instead of January. Presented by La Jolla Historical Society, the event on Sunday, April 3 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Ellen Browning Scripps Park will feature more than 150 automobiles in 30 specialty car classes, plus antique motorcycles. “Moving the show to April will limit the chance of rain and make for a much milder climate,” said Trip Bennett, La Jolla Motor Car Classic Committee co-chair. “The La Jolla Motor Car Classic has become a highly anticipated show for car enthusiasts around the


nation and now with a prime springtime date it will attract a higher caliber of automobiles.” The event will showcase Mercedes Benz Sedans, Auburn Speedsters, Jaguar Roadsters, Chevy Corvettes, Shelby Cobras, Packards, Ford Mustangs and Ferraris. Over the past six years, the La Jolla Motor Car Classic has paid tribute to Horseless Carriages, Italian marques, British marques, Woodies, ‘50s classics and Shelby automobiles. German cars are the theme of this year’s juried show. John Bolthouse, executive director of La Jolla Historical Society, noted tongue-in-cheek that the organization has sponsored the event for 1 ½ years now. “We inherited hosting duties halfway through last year,” he said, adding, “We plan to continue to do things

better and at a more profitable rate while putting on the highest-quality show.” Bolthouse added the car classic is continuing the tradition of being a weekend-long event. “Kicking it off will be a book signing on Friday, April 1,” he said. Author Tom Cotter will present his newest book, “The Corvette in the Barn: More Great Stories of Automotive Archaeology,” at the signing at 5 p.m. at Wisteria Cottage. “The next day on Saturday, we’re having a car rally with classics from the ‘50s, ‘60s and other eras, starting in Balboa Park at 9 a.m., and winding throughout San Diego coming back to La Jolla to Wisteria Cottage about 4 p.m.,” Bolthouse said.

UCSD Health puts baby breastfeeding tips online About 50,000 premature babies weighing less than three pounds are born in the United States each year. These fragile newborns need the highestquality nutrition, which is why UCSD Health System developed the Supporting Premature Infant Nutrition (SPIN) program to help mothers produce sufficient breast milk. Now, that program is available to anyone with Internet access at The new website has educational videos, pumping log sheets, milk recipes, lactation research and publications. Since not all hospitals will let mothers and their premature babies have skin-toskin contact, the videos also serve as a teaching model for other health institutions and patients. The number of premature babies who receive their mother’s milk when they go home from UCSD Health System’s neonatal intensive care unit has increased 15 percent since the SPIN program launched in 2008. About 100 families go through the SPIN program each year.

Hummingbirds do not have feet. False. Hummingbirds are members of the order Apodiformes that also includes birds called swifts, which are also known for their distinctly tapered wings and agility in flight. The apodi- prefix literally means “without feet.” Hummingbirds and swifts do have feet, of course, but their legs are very short and they are unable to walk or hop. — “Hummingbirds of the American West,” by Lynn Hassler

Zoé finds herself in ‘Quidam,’ a Cirque du Soleil favorite Cirque Du Soleil has taken some of its original shows (“Quidam” among them) and put them into an arenastyle venue so they can play smaller cities that have never been able to house a Big Top-style show. Eight such performances of “Quidam” will be presented at the Valley View Casino Center (formerly the San Diego Sports Arena) March 30-April 3. “Quidam” had its world premiere in Montreal under the Big Top in April 1996. Since that time, the production has toured on five continents and been experienced by millions of people. The international cast features 52 world-class acrobats, musicians, singers and characters. The “Quidam” story revolves around young, bored Zoé, a girl whose parents, distant and apathetic, ignore her. Her life has lost all meaning. Seeking to fill the void of her existence, she slides into an imaginary world — the world of Quidam — where she meets characters who encourage her to free her soul.

If you answer yes to most, you may be ready to move! 1) Have you substantial equity in your current home? 2) Has your income or financial situation improved? 3) Have your thoughts about your neighborhood changed? Do you find your self driving to a different area to shop, work, or meet friends most of the time. 4) Are there reasons why you can’t remodel or add on? This could especially be true if you live in a condo or PUD. 5) Are you comfortable moving in the current housing market? You may feel that you will get less for your home now, but on the other side, you may be able to buy more house than you could have when prices were higher. 6) Are interest rates attractive? Presently, rates are very low. A low rate will allow you to buy a larger home and also makes it easier for a buyer to buy your home.

LA JOLLA LIGHT - MARCH 24, 2011 - Page B7

On meeting my son’s mother for the first time Let Inga tell you ... Recently I had the pleasure of meeting my son’s mother for the first time. You have no idea how long I’ve waited to use that line. (OK, 33 years.) My older son, Rory — the blond blue-eyed one who looks like me as opposed to my biological son who bears no resemblance to me at all — was finally able to meet his birth mother, Erika, and introduced her to the rest of the family soon after. This was definitely a Locator moment. Erika cried, I cried. Erika is a lovely warm sweet person, the long-awaited missing link. She also comes with a duplicate in the form of an identical twin. Our grandson, Elliott, is trying to sort out this Guinness Book of World Records of grandmas: me,

Nana (his maternal grandmother), Grandma Jean (my former husband’s wife), and now Oma Erika and Oma Twin. Even Rory says he is going into hiding on Mother’s Day this May. Hopefully, 1-800-Flowers has a multi-mother discount. I know this was closure for Rory to finally meet Erika but it was for me as well. I’ve always felt a strong connection to Erika, my forever16-year-old silent partner and sine qua non co-mom. I’ve thought about her thousands of times, although I have to confess that the first 950 were in the form of “Who spawned this child?????” From his earliest days, Rory was a handful, quite possibly the most diabolically creative child (and prankster) ever to be unleashed on this planet. The Rory stories are so plentiful and varied — like a terrorist, he never repeated anything twice — that they are just referred to in family shorthand: “The Cleveland Airport crisis” (he was just faking the seizure), “the Mom’s office fiasco” (the campus police dropped charges), “the Chinese restaurant disaster” (we felt compelled to leave a 70 percent tip), and yes, even “the Bomb Squad debacle” (in

Rory’s defense, the HazMat guys should have realized right away it wasn’t a real bomb BEFORE they cordoned off the area). As Olof always said, “Rory looks for excitement. And finds it.” I actually chronicled many of these incidents which now have considerable entertainment value but which at the time I was planning to use as my defense. Because there were at least 200 occasions when the 20 years in prison would have been worth bludgeoning that kid to death. Of course, I didn’t tell Erika that. Or that if I sent Rory to his room, he’d open up both his windows and whack on his bed with a tennis racket shrieking: “Please don’t beat me, Mommy!” Or worse: “No, no, don’t touch me there!” (Those stranger awareness classes in grade school were perfect fodder for someone of Rory’s creativity.) His handmade Mother’s Day card the year he was 10 read: “You’ve been like a mother to me.” So among my burning questions to Erika were: “Were you into practical jokes? Embarrassing your family in public? Getting social services to call your parents?”

FROM CARS, B1 “These aren’t necessarily the same cars that are going to be featured at the Sunday show, just an addition to the main event. It’s a way to fly the flag, take the event outside of La Jolla.” The street in front of the cottage will be closed to traffic from about 2:30 p.m. until about 5 p.m. and while the public won’t have access to the area, it will be visible to those who are walking by.

No, she said, puzzled. Why? She did admit, however, to being a “total handful,” the despair of her mother. OK, so there’s definitely a “handful” gene going on here. Rory is now a happily married successful professional and a total love. He still likes to keep his hand in the pranks just for old time’s sake, most recently appropriating the library card number taped to my computer and ordering me up a long list of books including a guide to coping with hemorrhoids and colitis and another on the intricacies (graphically illustrated) of lesbian sex. Actually, they all turned out to be really educational reading; I sent him a book report on every one. I made it one of my life goals to live long enough for Rory to have a son. And he does. But Elliott, at 4 (an age by which Rory had long exhibited holy terror tendencies) is the sweetest easiest kid imaginable. It is so totally unfair. But Rory recently had a daughter. I’m trying to imagine a female Rory. And the possibilities are totally delicious. Look for La Jolla resident Inga’s lighthearted looks at life every other week in The La Jolla Light. Reach her at

Whisknladle to offer social food networking — dining with strangers Kitchen Shrink By Catharine L. Kaufman Flirt, make friends, share worldviews, and the love of food and wine as you break bread with perfect strangers at the laid-back Whisknladle during the newly launched Supper Club offered once a month in La Jolla. Arturo Kassel, the managing partner and winemeister, aka King, Tyrant and CEO of the bistro (along with sister hot spots La Jolla and Del Mar’s fledgling Prep Kitchen) has collaborated with executive chef Ryan Johnston to create a culinary and social adventure in the private dining room, a multi-course gourmet meal with wine pairing. Twelve venturesome foodies (with a limit of four people per reservation as Kassel’s ultimate goal is to have a dozen solitary, complete strangers) are invited to dine together on a Tuesday, indulging in delights served family-style to enhance interaction, intimacy and fun. The next one will be March 29. The edgy restaurateur’s whimsical inspiration was ignited by “my fondest dining experiences at the Whisknladle, the underground supper club in Brooklyn from which we got our name, or anywhere you

eat with strangers or put yourself at the mercy of the chef,” Kassel said. While the “supping with strangers” concept has been around awhile (it’s a wellhealed dining practice in Europe, and seen in this country with the swelling of communal tables, Japanese Tappan, murder mystery dinners, speed dating and that ilk), Kassel’s motivation is not to reinvent the wheel, but to “do it really well.” That includes letting Chef Ryan challenge himself with free creative and culinary reign (after all he grew up in the kitchen alongside his father, a butcher) and using seasonality and locally grown food, like gems from Chino Farms, and seafood. The spirit of the upcoming Supper Club menu was plucked from “Lulu’s Provencal Table,” Chef Ryan’s favorite cookbook. The gourmet feast will start with a mouth-watering aperitif of house-made salt cod brandade and garlic croutons, raw fish salad “merou a la Tahitienne” with deep-fried artichokes. A savory bouillabaisse will tease the palate before the piece de resistance arrives, a roasted spring leg of lamb with ramps and fresh thyme as the main course centerpiece, accompanied by sautéed morel mushrooms, Chino-chard gratin and asparagus vinaigrette. For your just desserts, house-made fromage blanc, Chino strawberries, rhubarb and Meyer lemon. The $75 meal includes a glass of wine paired with each course. At the end of the evening you’ll no longer be 12 “strangers in the night.” Here’s a recipe for Ol’ Blue Eyes’ favorite dessert, “Dooby-dooby-doo” Tiramisu. Ciao!

Classic Tiramisu (Where possible, use organics) n Ingredients: 6 egg yolks 1 1/4 cups of mascarpone cheese 1 1/4 cups white sugar 1 3/4 cups of heavy whipping cream 1/4 teaspoon of hazelnut or almond extract 2 12-ounce packages of ladyfingers 1/3 cup of Kahlua, Starbucks or other coffee flavored liqueur 1 teaspoon of cocoa powder 1 semisweet chocolate square or bar n Directions: in the top of a double boiler, water boiling, combine egg yolks and sugar. reduce heat, stirring constantly for about 10 minutes. remove from heat and whip until smooth and lemony colored. Blend in cheese until well combined. in a mixing bowl, whip cream and hazelnut or almond extract until stiff peaks form, and blend into the yolk/cheese mixture. Set aside. in a large glass bowl, line with half the ladyfingers. Brush with the coffee liqueur, and spread cream mixture on top. repeat with a second layer. Sprinkle with cocoa powder and garnish with chocolate curls, (use a vegetable peeler, sliding it down the edge of the chocolate bar). refrigerate for 6 hours or overnight. n For more info on the Supper Club or to book a reservation: Whisknlade, 1044 Wall St., La Jolla (858) 551-7575

Wonderland festival to light up local arts scene By Lonnie Burstein Hewitt Attention, dance-lovers: Wonderland is coming! Named for the amusement park that brought roller coasters, waterslides and a dance pavilion to San Diego 100 years ago, the new Wonderland is a thee-day festival presenting a quartet of hot, hot international dance companies to add spice to the local arts scene. This grand terpsichorean enterprise has a trio of movers and shakers behind it: Marty Wollesen, artistic director of UCSD’s ArtPower!, Allyson Green, chair of UCSD’s Theatre & Dance Department, and Patrick Stewart, executive director of Sushi, downtown’s go-to spot for performance and visual art. All three are interested in creating new opportunities for artistic collaborations and developing stronger ties between artists and the community. How did they decide which companies to invite? “I’ve been following Kate Weare’s work for years, and Allison got to know her at Sushi,” said Wollesen. “Kate had a working relationship with Monica (Bill Barnes), who was a Theatre & Dance Department alumna, and Patrick was a longtime fan of Lux Boreal. It turned out that each of us had some relation with each of the artists, so it was really fun to find we were all coming together over the same ones!” In addition to each company’s individual performance, Bill Barnes and Weare will team up for one program at UCSD. Tijuanabased Lux Boreal will be appearing at Sushi, and Australia’s Chunky Moves will

What is your child’s age? How did your child become interested in camp? Does your child talk about camp on a sustained basis? How much persuasion is necessary from you? For answers to these questions and more about selecting a camp, go to

Stuffed French Toast is filled with strawberry compote and marscarpone cheese.

Sooner or later everybody stops by La Jolla’s Cottage By Will ParSon ith its outcrop of highly visible umbrellas on the corner of Fay and Kline, The Cottage is an obvious choice for a sunny breakfast, brunch or lunch. Granted, you can dine indoors if you’d like, but this is La Jolla. The real choice isn’t between inside and outside — it’s between shade and full sunshine. It’s the visibility of that outdoor seating, right up to the sidewalk, that drew in patrons Michael Inzunza and his then-fiancée Alejandra several years ago. “When we were planning our wedding we ran into this place looking for a coffee shop to sit down, and had a wonderful lunch.” Since getting married at the nearby Mary, Star of the Sea Catholic Church five years ago, the Inzunzas have made The Cottage an anniversary staple. “Our tradition is we come back here for breakfast and afterwards go with the whole family — now I have two girls — and we take a

W The Cottage offers both indoor and patio seating areas.

Crunchy Granola-Crusted Mahi Mahi is served with grilled asparagus, jasmine rice and lemon beurre blank.

On The Menu Recipe Each week you’ll find a recipe from the featured restaurant online at Just click ‘Get The Recipe’ at the bottom of the story. ■ This week: Raspberry White Chocolate Bread Pudding from The Cottage shot in front of the chapel.” Some Inzunza family favorites include the benedicts (especially the California Benedict), the Buttermilk Coffee Cake and the House-Baked Signature Cottage Granola. That granola is another one of The Cottage’s selling points, and it is also available in a sealed package to take home. The gourmet product is baked in The Cottage’s own ovens and shipped

to customers across the country. The list of all-natural ingredients is also pleasingly short and everything in it is easily pronounceable. The Stuffed French Toast is another wise breakfast choice, as is the Polenta Benedict, which is a recent addition to the menu. If it’s later in the day, lunch offerings include the Crunchy Granola-Crusted Mahi Mahi and the Stuffed Avocado, which has taken off in popularity since its appearance on the menu several weeks ago. Have it with either tuna or chicken salad. While The Cottage is especially suited to capitalize on San Diego’s fine weather, don’t expect it to be any less crowded when it’s not so sunny. There are plenty of regulars who will move indoors for that granola and for coldweather treats like the chili. If you first wander by on a sunny day, rest assured there is enough to keep you coming back, rain or shine.

he American Ireland Fund Young Leaders and their friends gathered on March 12 to celebrate their first annual fundraising event at Barfly, in downtown La Jolla. Guests enjoyed a buffet supper and crowded the dance floor to dance and sing to the music of the Hollywood U2 Tribute Band. The Irish dancers came on the dance floor at intermission, setting the stage for a video presentation of the work of the Fund in promoting peace and reconciliation in Northern Ireland. Narrated by Liam Neeson, the presentation outlined the great need for children’s programs that help break the cycle of suspicion and mistrust that have plagued the region.

The couple met over a year ago in Rhode Island where Scott was attending an Officer Commissioning School. They had already planned to get married this May, but he never formally

Pediatrician has tips for dodging sports injuries With an eye on the Little League baseball sign-ups beginning around the county, Scripps Clinic sports medicine pediatrician Dr. Paul Stricker has advice for parents. He said that while taking part in youth sports can improve fitness and social skills, there are potential drawbacks. Even if well-intentioned, the pressure to succeed at a young age can set the stage for physical overuse injuries, emotional Dr. Paul stress and burnout. stricker These pitfalls can often be averted if parents and coaches understand how kids develop their athletic abilities. “Children build sports skills in a progressive sequence that we can’t dramatically speed up,” said Dr. Stricker who argues that parents and coaches need to better understand kids’ three core developmental pro-

cesses — physical, intellectual and emotional. He offered a sampling of physical sports skill milestones important to keep in mind: n Ages 2 to 5: Most kids can’t yet effectively throw and catch (due to incomplete development of the brain’s vision centers); n Ages 6 to 9: The body’s nerve connections start doing a better job of communicating the brain’s messages to the muscles; n Pre-adolescence (age 10 to puberty): Control of body motions becomes more automatic; kids can refine skills like pivoting, turning and spinning; n Puberty (ages 11-13 for girls; 13-15 for boys): Due to rapid physical growth, there may be a temporary decline in balance skills and body control; n Mid to late teens: More aerobic gains are achievable with training; heavy weights should be avoided until the skeleton fully matures.

Lady unfortunately came to us after being hit by a car. With the care and love from the San Diego Humane Society, she has been getting better every day. She is still on restricted exercise, so she will need a family who will help her with her recovery. She is thrilled to go on short walks. Lady loves to play and spend quality time with her favorite people friends. She will do well in a variety of homes, but an adultsonly home is recommended. She would also prefer to be the only pet in the home. Her adoption fee is $105 and includes her spay, current vaccinations, permanent microchip identification, certificate for a free veterinary exam, and more! During the adoption process a Humane Society Veterinarian will be present to explain her medical history, answer any questions, and share how to best care for me in the future.

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

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