Miramar cemetery foundation gets veteran leader By ELizABETh MAriE hiMchAk The first in-ground burial at the new Miramar National Cemetery, held on April 14, marked another milestone in a long-awaited dream for many local veterans, according to its foundation’s incoming chairman. Anthony Principi, U.S. Veterans Affairs secretary from 2001 to 2005, will become the Fort Rosecrans and Miramar National Cemetery Support Foundation chairman in June. “No one is more deserving and better suited to replace me as chairman of the foundation,” said retired Air Force Brig. Gen. Robert L. Cardenas. “(Principi) led the effort at the national level for expansion of veterans cemetery facilities in San Diego. “Under his guidance, Miramar National

Cemetery will become a shining jewel on the high mesa of Miramar, a shrine for our fallen heroes,” Cardenas said. Principi, a senior vice president of Pfizer, Inc. and executive chairman of QTC Management, Inc., said, “I’m proud to continue (Cardenas’) legacy of service to veterans as we honor their service in hallowed ground.” Cardenas has been the foundation’s chairman since it formed in 2002. Among his efforts were making the 313-acre cemetery at MCAS Miramar a reality. It is the first national cemetery built in San Diego since 1934. Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery at Point Loma has been closed to in-ground burials since 1966. Since then, deceased veterans

By dave SChwaB A compromise plan is being offered by parties who want to expand valet parking service on Prospect Street in La Jolla. The La Jolla Community Planning Association (LJCPA), which makes land-use recommendations to the city, recently narrowly nixed by an 8-7 vote, a proposal to add four valet spaces down the block from the 12 existing at 1298 Prospect St. In response, attorney Matt Peterson of the law firm of Peterson & Price representing Ace and Sunset valet companies and others interested in seeing Village valet service expanded, presented a new counterproposal. “Within a hundred yards southwest (of George’s valet) there are over 1,700 restaurant seats, and there is no way that a 12-space valet operation can handle that on its own,” argued Peterson. “George Hauer (restaurateur) has agreed, to keep peace in the community and for an overall (valet) system that works, to reduce his valet by two spots to 10.”

Plans for Green Dragon site advance By Dave SchwaB Running the maze of community planning reviews, architects Alcorn & Associates are progressing toward approvals that would clear the way for townhomes on a portion of La Jolla’s historic Green Dragon site. Last week Jim Alcorn and Paul Benton were before the La Jolla Planned District Ordinance (PDO) Committee and the La Jolla Development Permit Review (DPR) Committee. They were talking about requests for variances, permits and construction drawings to build three, forrent, single-family residences — the Jack O'Lantern Townhomes — on a prime, oceanview site with existing commercial buildings. The project site at 1241, 1245 and 1249 Coast Blvd. includes but is below the former Chart House now being remodeled into an Eddie V’s, which is scheduled to open this summer. The spot used to be the site of four little cottages removed in 1991 and is near the heritage house, which was turned

into Brockton Villa restaurant. Alcorn said a similar redevelopment proposal on the same site back in 1995 never came to fruition. That proposal called for four residential units. The most recent proposal scales units back to three, making the project more spacious. The permit review committee deferred action until its next meeting on Tuesday — after the Light’s deadline — asking the architects to return with updated construction drawings matching those being submitted to the city for approval.

Alcorn said he intends to have the redevelopment project heard in May by the La Jolla Community Planning Association (LJCPA), which makes recommendations to the city on land use. After lengthy discussion, the other community panel — PDO, which looks at issues like colors, surface textures and how a project adheres to local design standards — voted 6-0 to grant Alcorn & Benton’s request to waive the requirement for retail use on the ground floor.

motion also allows them not to restrict residential use to the ground floor only, and allow driveways and curb cuts on the same lot no closer than 150 feet to allow individual, rather than requiring shared, underground parking on-site. “I have no problem with the variances,” said PDO committee member Orrin Gabsch, who had other concerns about the former Green Dragon site. “I think we need to study the whole site,” he said. “I hate piecemealing this. We ought to be looking at the whole picture.” In reply, Alcorn noted the residential project on the property is “self-contained.” After the committee meetings, Benton noted variances are necessary for the redevelopment project because the former Green Dragon site is unique, not only being historical, but also because it has two “fronts” on Prospect Street and Coast Boulevard making it something of an anomaly planning-wise. At the DPR meeting, committee member Phil Merten said he didn’t like the fact that curb cuts proposed for the site will eliminate one parking spot. “I’m hung up on reduction of public parking on the street,” he said. “The La Jolla Community Plan says we should maintain and enhance public parking, especially close to the coast. This is one of the most desirable spaces in all of La Jolla, and we’re going to be losing parking.” n To find out the latest on this developing story or to comment on it, go to

la Jolla high School robotics team members celebrate their victory in las vegas. cOURTeSY

LJHS Robotics Team on a roll By catherine Sulpizio Intern After three years of competitions, the La Jolla Robotics team has finally gained entry to the FIRST World Championship, after snagging a regional title in Las Vegas earlier this month. The road to their newfound success has not been an easy one, requiring an abundant source of energy and drive from the team. The undefeated team spent six weeks at the beginning of the year building their robot. On a typical day, the nine team members would meet after school in a closet that doubled as their team room and work for five hours on creating their robot. The result is a 5-foot-tall robot, informally dubbed Njoror after the Viking god. Equipped with sophisticated motion sensors and timers that allow it to perform tasks without human control, the robot is used in all competitions throughout the year. Besides being a time-consuming sport, it is also an expensive one. The entrance fee for the competitions carries a hefty price tag, requiring between $4,000 and $5,000 per regional. Though a kit of parts for building the robots is provided with the entrance fee, additional supplies run over $1,000. The Robotics Team spends at least $14,000 on fees, travel expenses and supplies in any given year. This year, the team’s unexpected entry into the FIRST World Championships will add about $25,000 to their expenses. To raise the extra money, the team is writing letters to local technology and financial companies for sponsorship. The FIRST World Championships will be held in Saint Louis from April 27 to 30. The local team is still in need of funds, either personal donations from individuals, or business sponsorships. Checks can be written to the La Jolla High School Foundation in care of Robotics.

LJVMA to spotlight ‘Beautiful La Jolla’ By Kathy Day La Jollans can expect to see a full schedule of events and beautification efforts kicking into gear in the very near future as the La Jolla Village Merchants puts its plans into action. When the board met on April 13, they heard reports on everything from keeping La Jolla by the Sea as the brand identity for the group to reminders about calling the city to report potholes and non-working street lights. But with an urgency that hasn’t been seen for a while, the group’s promotions working group stepped up with an idea for a series of monthly events to start in June to “kick start life” in the Village, said Sheila Fortune, owner of Aquamoree and LJVMA secretary. “We want to have one campaign with a monthly theme, during the second week of each month,” she told the board and audience of about 35. With the theme, “La Jolla by the Sea … See what’s Beautiful,” each month will focus on a special segment of the Village offerings and will feature special events on Tuesday night. Fortune noted that they picked Tuesdays because Friday nights and weekend days usually have better crowds so the goal is to help pick up business on other days. “We want to have music on the street corners, seminars, fashion shows, design competitions and discounts for theme subject items,” she said, reading from her group’s summary. The plan calls for starting in June with “Beautiful Store Fronts and Gardens” and a

Master Plan Design Contest, with details to be determined. But the theme could possibly feature green, sustainable concepts as well as others. From there it will be Beautiful and Healthy Lives; Beautiful Furniture, Art and Design; Beautiful Fashion; Beautiful Food and Wine; Beautiful Places to Stay, and Beautiful Holidays. The October food and wine month could be carried out through the Gallery, Wine, Walk & Taste that has been held for the past several years or a new Taste of La Jolla-type event, Fortune said. The holiday event would coincide with the Town Council’s parade, perhaps a contest to decorate the Village. Fortune added on Monday that the group is “trying to recognize that all of the members have different customers/clients and we all need the locals and tourists to walk the streets and visit. Breaking it up into monthly themes will allow us to focus a little more on everyone’s needs for new business than a large event or two would generate at this time. It will get some positive energy flowing on a consistent basis in the Village.” Among the ideas they’re considering are a discount from the “Beautiful” events if someone buys during the events or scavenger hunt could be designed to get people in and visiting all participating businesses for the month and the entire year. Looking to the future, Fortune said, the goal would be for the association to host “two or three key events” next year.

Bridget’s Blooms takes over on Torrey Pines By Kathy Day If you’ve noticed some bright new flowers and a new business in the flower stand at 1055 Torrey Pines Road, it’s because Bridget and Mike Oleata are giving it new life as Bridget’s Blooms. Both La Jolla High School graduates, they are creating a new open-air flower shop in a patio-like setting as well as adding colorful landscaping to the highly visible triangle near the intersection with Girard Avenue. Bridget, who worked at another local shop for years and then owned it, said she’s returned to the business “nine years and two children later with the support of her family.” She is being assisted by her sister Gail Rogans, who also has been in the floral business before, and Michael, who has been in sales for years and is helping to run the business. Their children, D.J. and Natalie, “love it,” noted Michael, adding that they want to have a lemonade stand there and D.J. is talking about packaging seeds for his contribution. When they heard the property was available, they jumped in quickly and signed a long-term lease, Michael said, conceding he’s a bit “intimidated by flowers” but despite that loves the new endeavor. They are working on an online store as

La Jolla Rotary and local high school students are in the midst of a busy schedule. Two club members and 12 La Jolla High and two Bishop’s School students spent the weekend at Rotary’s Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) program. The three-day leadership conference in Idyllwild brought together more than 250 students and Rotarians to learn leadership skills and make new friends. On Tuesday, they shared their experiences at La Jolla Rotary’s lunch meeting. Next up, from April 30 to May 7, the Rotary and the LJHS Interact Club will be restoring benches and picnic tables at the La Jolla Recreation Center. The project will start with preparatory work on April 30, with refinishing work done the following week at the high school’s wood shop. Then on May 7, the clubs will reassemble the

newly refinished benches. Later in May, Rotary and Interact members will head to Tecate, Mexico, to build homes for two impoverished families. Each home will be completed in one day using innovative new construction materials and techniques supplied by La Jolla-based Icology Group, according to Rotarian Cal Mann, who advises the LJHS Interact group. Funding comes from the Harmony & Health Foundation, private donations by Rotary Club members and fundraising events conducted by Interact club members. They will celebrate the completion of the project on May 21 with a candlelight labyrinth ceremony at Law Street beach in Pacific Beach. The event is open to the public. Voluntary contributions for future homes will be accepted event.w

La Jolla Shores storm drain project stirs concerns By Dave SchwaB A proposal to replace storm drains along Avenida De La Playa in La Jolla Shores has merchants fearing for their economic lives and community planners questioning the project’s scope. Jennifer Nichols Kearns of the city’s Pollution Prevention Division and project manager Akram Bassyouni told La Jolla Shores Association (LJSA) on Wednesday the infrastructure improvement project must be done. As part of a state-designated Area of Special Biological Significance, city officials said the replacement project is required to prevent waste discharges from an inadequate, undersized existing stormwater pipe from flooding and discharging pollutants into the ocean via an outfall near the Shores boat ramp. “We’re referring to this project lovingly as ‘the

box,’” said Nichols Kearns. “It’s the solution at the end of Avenida De La Playa, with funding available, to upgrade the undersized stormwater pipeline and outfall structure, replacing 1,300 feet of pipe.” Nichols Kearns said the project is to begin in September 2012 after the summer construction moratorium and last six to eight months with completion anticipated by May 2013. “I won’t be in business then,” said Nanci Kirk, LJSA boardmember and owner of Papalulu’s at the Shores Restaurant. “When the city says six to eight months — that’s a year.” After the LJSA meeting, Kirk said the city doesn’t understand what impact shutting down sections of Avenida De La Playa during project construction will have on businessowners. “Businesses are so fragile here: It will destroy a lot of people,” she said. “We’re

just coming off a terrible last summer. Our Septembers are warm and beautiful. I don’t want to lose September.” Nichols Kerns said the city will work with merchants to do everything possible to lessen the impact of construction. She suggested hours could be flexible, and nighttime work might even be considered to offset their concerns. Other association board members questioned the replacement project’s timing,

planning and accountability. “You’re presenting this as if the decision’s already been made,” said Bernie Siegel. “We don’t know how that process took place, how that decision was made. Was the public given an opportunity to weigh in on it?” “This the best engineering solution we’ve come up with for the regulations that require zero (pollutant) discharge,” replied Nichols Kerns. Noting the pipeline and

ocean outfall both seem excessively large, Mary Coakley said, “It’s unfortunate this has come to us as if the design is already set in stone. You should meet with everybody to brainstorm how it (project) might be mitigated.” Nichols Kerns told them, “We don’t have options on making this smaller as far as the capacity of that pipe is concerned. This is pretty much the minimum pipeline size required to handle

flooding and prevent overflow.” In other matters, Audrey Keane was elected as the association’s president, replacing Joe Dicks. Coco Tihanyi was elected vice chair and Ruth Padgett was made treasurer. The secretary position will rotate until someone can be found to fill it. There are also two board vacancies as members Ed Furtek and Pat Nissan announced they are stepping down.

researchers say a “stress response” mechanism used by normal cells to cope with harsh or demanding conditions is exploited by cancer cells. Inside all cells, the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is a protein-making factory. Increased physiological demands or disease can cause proteins to misfold and accumulate in the ER. When this occurs, cells initiate a ER stress response

Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. News release at n Bone-munching worms Worms that dine on whale carcasses at the bottom of the ocean may be far more ancient than scientists previously thought. Discovered less than a decade ago, but since identified in other oceans, Osedax “boneworms” have been documented mainly living upon whale carcasses that fall to the ocean floor. Curious if boneworms live off of other marine species, a research team led by Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UCSD used remotely operated vehicles to deploy tuna and wahoo bones, as well as shark cartilage inside wire cages at a depth of more than 3,000 feet in waters off Monterey, Calif. Five months later, the cages were retrieved and Osedax was found living on the fish bones. The finding supports a hypothesis that bone-eating Osedax may have evolved during the Cretaceous period, well before the dawn of marine mammals. The findings appear in Biology Letters, a Royal Society journal.

Those spaces, Peterson noted, previously existed in front of the old Chart House that is being remodeled into an Eddie V’s that is to open this summer. Gary Pence, the senior city traffic engineer who will make the call on whether to expand Prospect Street valet, said Friday, “I will try to work with the community, restaurants and valet companies to come up with a compromise which would add new spaces but remove some spaces from other areas. I don’t know the exact number that would be added or removed yet.” Noting the biggest concern with valet parking is traffic congestion, Pence said in an e-mail that if problems develop should new valet spaces be created “we (city) may have to remove or relocate the zones.” Pence said a one-year valet permit that can be renewed annually is $700 for the initial permit and $300 for renewals. Cost is not based on the number of spaces provided. Concerning the value of valet parking, Pence said, “In my opinion valet op-

erations help get vehicles off the street because they are required to be parked in nearby lots or garages. Theoretically this should help provide more onstreet parking for the non-valet users and help prevent motorists from continuously circling the block looking for a parking spot near the restaurant. They also provide convenient access to restaurants and shops for people who are unable to walk long distances.” Pence added, “From our experience valet zones have been a benefit to communities.“ Pence’s views of the benefits of valet are not shared by everyone in the Village. Landlord Lincoln Foster, who has been lobbying against adding any new valet spots to the 12 already existing, claims valet benefits restaurants but not other retailers, insisting diagonally parked valet spots slows traffic when cars are backing out. Foster doesn’t favor Peterson’s compromise either. “It’s nonsense, since 12 is already more than adequate,” Foster e-mailed. “If the valet operation was conducted efficiently, instead of storing cars in spaces for the convenience of under staffing, fewer spaces overall would be needed to serve the entire street.”

Homeowners who don’t need the equity from their home to purchase a new home, may consider renting it instead of selling. It is often considered a good investment to own a rental property where rent covers your mortgage payment, but it’s important to understand the consequences of becoming a landlord. While there are many upstanding, responsible tenants, there will be some who do not share your pride of ownership. Renters can be nonchalant about home maintenance because the home is not their own personal investment and they may not take care of the property the way you would. If you decide to rent your home, be sure to familiarize yourself with local tenant/landlord laws. Conduct a credit check on potential tenants, and contact the references listed on the application before signing a lease agreement. If the home you rent has been your primary residence, you could lose the benefits of a capital gains deferral when you sell it later. However rental property may be eligible for a different kind of tax-deferred exchange. Get professional advice from a tax expert and a professional Realtor before you decide to turn your home into rental property.

Mulligan named to Dean’s List

FROM MIRAMAR, A1 who chose a traditional burial instead of cremation have been interred at Riverside National Cemetery, about 90 miles away. As chairman, Principi, who splits his time between homes in St. Michaels, Md., and Rancho Santa Fe, said he will lead the volunteer foundation in its fundraising and cemetery support efforts. “I find it very difficult to say no to veterans causes,” he said. “I’ve served on several veterans boards ... and am honored to have the opportunity to serve veterans and my nation. I feel very blessed.” The 66-year-old 1967 U.S. Naval Academy graduate served in Vietnam, earned a law degree and was assigned to the Navy’s Judge Advocate General Corps. He was assigned several times to San Diego in the 1970s and 1980s, which included living in Rancho Penasquitos, Escondido and Rancho Santa Fe, he said. In addition to his wartime service in Vietnam, Principi’s two sons served in Iraq. According to the foundation’s website, Miramar cemetery enhancements it plans to support include building an

To be selected for this honor, a student must earn a grade point average of 3.5 or higher on a 4.0 scale in a program of at least 14 credits with at least 12 graded credits. Matthew is the son of Michael and Barbara Mulligan and attended La Jolla Country Day School. An economics major, he will graduate in May 2011.

Members will also be assisting with Honor Guard, Memorial Day and Veterans Day ceremonies. Plans are for the Miramar cemetery to be built in six phases that when complete in about 60 years will have burial space for about 161,000. Phases will occur as needed, Principi said. The first phase includes 11,500 conventional gravesites, 4,500 in-ground cremation sites, 10,000 columbarium niches, an administration building, maintenance complex, two committal service shelters and public assembly area.

One of the founders of ”Stand Down,’’ an annual event that provides services to homeless veterans, he died of heart failure Jan. 30 at his Spring Valley home. He also helped launch the organization now known as Veterans Village of San Diego. Smith’s burial was attended by about 200 friends and family members, including his widow, said Kirk Leopold, the cemetery director. Principi said it took decades for a new national cemetery to open in San Di-

UCSD scientists earn awards Three scientists at the UCSD School of Medicine just learned they are recipients of Hartwell Individual Biomedical Research Awards, honoring work in children’s health. Jack Bui, MD, PhD, assistant professor in the Department of Pathology; Pamela Itkin-Ansari, PhD, assistant professor in the Department of Pediatrics; and Adriana Tremoulet, MD, assistant adjunct professor in the Department of Pediatrics are among this year’s 12 honorees. Each will receive a $100,000 grant annually

from the Hartwell Foundation for three years to cover direct research costs. This is only the second time that a single institution has had three winners in the same year. Bui is interested in helping the body’s immune system better recognize and kill tumor cells. Itkin-Ansari is looking for ways to improve treatment of Type-1 diabetes, and Tremoulet is focusing on finding biomarkers for Kawasaki disease, a mysterious vascular disorder of unknown cause.

Last week, the school board agreed to cancel 80 pink slips — of the 1,335 issued, using redevelopment money to backfill what is currently estimated to be a $120 million budget hole. That deficit could grow by $55 million, depending on what happens in Sacramento. If nothing is done in terms of extending the state tax that is expiring this year, some have proposed cutting the school year by five days, Freeman said. It is now 180 days, with San Diego teachers forced to take five furlough days. “These are terrible times for education,” he said before the crowd gathered. “Of all the things that shouldn’t be touched, it

legislators in Sacramento, who are the ones who can do something about the situation. Tell them to “Stop cutting education.” Almost $500,000,000 has been cut over the past 5 years — there’s nothing left. Our legislators need to pledge their support to the education and welfare of San Diego families and teachers instead of signing party-line pacts. Parents on the Cluster Association board have already done that and also have become involved with education advocacy groups like Educate Our State and the new SDUSD parent group, UP for ED (United Parents for Education.) La Jolla Elementary currently had eight teachers on the list, according to SDEA President Bill Freeman who led last week’s rally. One layoff notice has been rescinded, he said. Prinicipal Donna Tripi, was not available for comment. Melissa Roy-Wood, a fifth-grade LJES teacher who has been teaching for seven years, was among those at the rally. She had good reason to be there: For the third time, she has received a pink slip notifying her that she may not have a job in the fall. “When I’m here I try to put it out of my mind,” she said. “When you’re with the kids, you don’t think about it, but when I’m home … It makes you feel like a worker ant.” She said she has gone to several school board meetings about the budget crisis and is running for an at-large seat on the San Diego Education Association board so she can represent the La Jolla Cluster as well as

Welsh merges art, architecture, history By Dave SchwaB The third speaker in La Jolla Historical Society’s 10-part Contemporary Architects Making History 2011 Lecture Series believes art and architecture are inseparable. “I think architecture is art: I approach it as that,” said lifelong La Jollan Matthew Matthew Welsh, an artist and designwelsh er, who will give a lecture titled “Working with La Jolla’s History” April 28 at 7 p.m. at Wisteria Cottage, 780 Prospect St.

The monthly lecture series features mostly local architects talking about their work and how it fits into the Jewel’s rich architectural tapestry. A residential architect of note who favors historical remodels, Welsh’s projects include the (Harle) Montgomery and Odean Wellbaun residences, and most recently, Heritage Place’s restoration. Heritage Place includes the relocated Corey House, the residence of La Jolla’s first female doctor. “We’ve saved some houses and restored the past,” said Welsh about his work. A lifelong painter, Welsh said he took his first class in watercolors when he was 5 or 6. As a painter he’s done portraits of many of his La Jolla architectural clients, as well as

having painted historical homes in the community. Those paintings currently are on display through mid-May at Wisteria Cottage. For Welsh, function must follow environment in his work. “The context of La Jolla is important to me in what I’m doing,” he said. “How does the building relate to that context — the natural environment, the ocean, the colors, the scale? How does it (structure) relate to the client’s life, what they’re going to use it for?” Art is more philosophical and interpretive, architecture more material and concrete noted Welsh, who seems to have found a harmonious synthesis somewhere in be-

tween. “With a building you have to deal with gravity, building codes, the client’s investment, etc.,” he said. “While a painting is subjective with colors and emotion and feeling. … In architecture, you actually build it and live in it.” Architecture without art would be very sterile,” said Welsh, likening it to a filing cabinet with a purely utilitarian structure. But when you combine art and architecture in the form of a home: “You have a wonderful place to live in,” he concluded. Tickets are $10 for members: $15 for nonmembers.

Science takes over at La Jolla Elementary

cience experiments involving light and color took over La Jolla Elementary Friday night. For the annual Family Science Night, Leigh Plesniak, a biochemist and a parent at the school, turned many campus classrooms into laboratories that encouraged students (and their parents) to have fun with color and light. Students made bracelets with beads that turned colors under a ultraviolet light, they explored how black markers contain multiple color dyes, they danced by a black light, they painted faces with ice and saw how the cold ice changed the reflection from an infrared light, they guided a laser beam through a maze using mirrors. A description of most of the activities can be found at light.html.

SPOTLIGHT on LOCAL BUSINESS Dr. Tess adds La Jolla office Dermatologist Tess Mauricio, M.D., who recently expanded her practice to La Jolla, offers a non-invasive way to fight aging and get results. “We specialize in non-surgical rejuvenation and lyposculpture to turn back the clock and make patient’s faces and bodies look younger without going under the knife,” Mauricio said. Dr. Tess Dermatology & Cosmetic Center, with a second office in Scripps Ranch, offers Venus Freeze, magnetic pulses and radio frequencies applied to the face and body, for circumference reduction or to improve cellulite and tighten skin. “It improves wrinkling,” noted Mauricio about Venus Freeze, which she said renders results — toning, tightening, removing loose skin, etc. — which can be maintained over time.

Tess Mauricio Services offered by Dr. Tess include chemical peels, Restylane dermal filler, GloMinerals, acne treatment, Replenix and Heliocare. Mauricio said patients seek out her services as an alternative to invasive surgical procedures like facelifts and tummy tucks. “Most people want a rested, youthful look, but not one where people know that they’ve had things done to them,” she said. Mauricio’s practice also treats people with conditions like acne or pre-skin cancer.

Kaiserhof: A San Diego tradition

“I remove moles, do exams if there’s a lesion that could be skin cancer,” she said, adding her practice is a “one-stop shop.” She said she’s treated many patients for different conditions over long periods of time. “I’ve had people come to me in their 20s and 30s for acne treatment and I’ve treated them years later for signs of aging in their skin,” she said. The dermatologist keeps up with the latest treatments and advances in the industry. “I have the latest and greatest in technology,” she said. “I work with many companies helping create protocols and launch products and technology.” The practice is open Monday through Saturday at two different locations. For more information, visit or call (877) 998-7755.


For all things German, especially the food, visit Kaiserhof Restaurant and Biergarten at 2253 Sunset Cliffs Blvd., in Ocean Beach. Having just celebrated its 30th anniversary, the restaurant is run by Horst and Paula Bolter and their son Peter. The Horsts met in 1962 and opened their first restaurant, The Black Forest Inn, in New Jersey in 1969 before relocating to San Diego in 1979. They started a restaurant in Mission Valley before moving to Ocean Beach in 1992 when son Peter became involved. “We have traditional German and American dishes,” noted Peter Bolter. “We also have 14 imported beers, 12 of them from Germany. We draw from the whole county and from as far away as Los Angeles.” If you’re German, or even if you’re not, you’re going to feel right at home here. The Bolters offer festive, German-themed dining both

inside and out, accommodating a total of about 200 guests. A glance at Kaiserhof’s menu includes all the classic German favorites — bratwurst, sauerbraten, apple strudel, wiener schnitzel, red cabbage and sauerkraut — as well as seafoods including trout, halibut, swordfish and lobster tail plus American classics like New York Strip Steak and Filet Mignon. A brunch menu offers choices from an American breakfast and eggs benedict to poached salmon and German pancakes. Lunch is served from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday through Sunday and dinner is from 5

Personal essay a personal challenge By RogeR Li Intern Editor’s note: Roger Li is a senior at La Jolla High who has been an intern at the Light for more than a year. In this intermittent series, he’s telling us about the college-application process. The fall of my senior year, I knew that I wanted Ms. Visconti as my AP English Literature teacher. She was known for being brash, fiercely intellectual and relentlessly honest. Her class was infamous for being the most difficult on the LJHS campus, but all her past students agreed that she knew how to teach writing. With college applications approaching, I wanted Ms. Visconti to read my personal statements. Several weeks into the class, she posed a question to her students: what do we most like about ourselves? One by one, each student raised his hand and offered his selfappointed redeeming quality. “I’m good at skateboarding,” said one precocious, but naïve, student. “Colleges don’t care that you’re good at skateboarding. Half of La Jolla High can twirl around on a skateboard,” said Ms. Visconti. “You need to demonstrate your intellectual capacity by writing well and writing about one specific topic that

Roger Li takes a break from senior year decision-making. Courtesy shows who you are.” So each student began to think in terms of what’s desirable for a university. Obviously, crippling emotional problems and suicidal thoughts were not examples of attractive essay topics. Personally, I struggled to find one topic I wanted to write about. I wondered how it was possible to incorporate all my passions in one polished, 500-word essay. Ms. Visconti taught me that the perfect essay detailing my entire life was not only impossible but also frowned upon. She advised me to pick one narrow topic. Volunteering, my gastro-

nomic escapades, and my passion for modern Japanese fiction were all appropriate topics. Ultimately, I decided to write about my participation in Youth and Government and my work with the International Rescue Committee, a refugee resettlement agency. My first drafts were composed mostly of facts. They had no personality, no zeal and no life. Not surprisingly, Ms. Visconti hammered them. “You’re 17 years old and you sound like you’re 80. Why do you enjoy volunteering? Why are you passionate about government? What do you want to convey to a college admissions officer? Why should a university want you on its campus?” So I set about revising my essays. I added personal touches — my lifelong fascination with Asian culture, the T-shirts I spray painted my face on for my Y&G campaign, and most importantly, my love of fried rice. At the end of a grueling couple of months, I finally felt satisfied with my essays. They did not represent every facet of my personality, but they did show my best qualities. And fortunately, they did not include any mention of skateboarding. Next: Stay tuned for Roger’s next take on the college-application process.

Let’s revisit the ‘free-speech’ tables at Children’s Pool Our View La Jolla needs to get the city’s Parks & Recreation officials to step up and do something about the swap-meet atmosphere that’s developed at the Children’s Pool. This isn’t at all about whether the seals and their supporters or the beach-access proponents should stay or go. It’s about the fact that what has traditionally been a scenic view spot where locals and tourists could take in the coastal beauty of

our community is being blocked not just by the competing interests of the seal debate, but by vendors having nothing to do with either side who are selling T-shirts and hats. In an effort to clean up the area, city officials decided last year that they would issue permits to two groups based on a lottery. They say it’s the same procedure followed in other areas of San Diego. But in La Jolla, by luck of the draw, two of the groups who want the public to have unfettered access to the beach ended up with

the right cards. As a result, the Animal Protection and Rescue League responded with tables of its own, and a challenge to the regulations based on claims that the lottery violates the First Amendment Right to free speech. Now come the seemingly commercial vendors. Even with this new intrusion into the public space, police appear to be taking a hands-off approach to the socalled “free-speech” tables, entering the fray only when criminal acts are committed. Yes, a new security guard has

State’s school funding not working COmmunitY Leader’S View By John May President, La Jolla Cluster Association It’s like déjà vu all over again. That line from the inimitable Yogi Berra sums up the feelings many of us have about the budget process for California’s public schools. Parents, students, teachers and staff have watched year after year as programs are cut, layoffs or retirements occur, class sizes go up, and so on. Next year San Diego Unified will lose at least 120 million dollars-and that is after hundreds of millions of dollars have been cut over the last few years. This yearly loss of funding and the accompanying scramble is not sustainable. California has to find a way to consistently fund all schools at a level sufficient to

educate our students-without boom and bust cycles. As long as the state maintains the current system, adequate and sustainable funding remains a dream. So here’s a thought: California should completely change the way it funds education. How can that happen? First, it will take a lot of political will in Sacramento. Education needs a real champion. Yes, California has a financial problem, but why should education bear the brunt of balancing the budget? Second, it will take a lot of advocacy from us; not just from parents, but from all who believe in the promise of education. The state needs to invest more money in education, and to change how the money is spent. California, like most states (and

the federal government), has a habit of allocating money and then dictating how the money must be spent. This needs to change. Schools need more flexibility in managing their budgets. Schools, clusters, and districts need the ability to decide how to best support their students. One size does not fit all and Sacramento and Washington rarely know best. Yes, it can be done. Maryland radically changed that state’s approach to education funding several years ago, including simplifying the “categorical” funding that ties the hands of educators. And they have tracked the results. Since implementing the changes, student proficiency in math and reading have significantly improved. Coincidence? Maybe not. And maybe that kind of change in California will stop the feeling that we’ve all been here before.

LJVma gets some good news COmmunitY Leader’S View By Phil Coller La Jolla Village Merchants Association When the La Jolla Village Merchants Association (LJVMA) held its second board meeting on April 13 at the La Jolla Women’s Club I was able to deliver the good news that the day before, the City of San Diego had recognized us as the advisory board for the La Jolla Business Improvement District (BID). On top of that, I announced that we expect that a contract to manage the BID would be signed in midMay. Our various working groups reported on their ideas and the

board decided that our committee structure would be finalized at the next board meeting on May 11. Our marketing committee proposed that the association’s motto should be La Jolla by The Sea and that events over the next 12 months should be themed Beautiful La Jolla. We also initiated talks with ConVis about the possibility of jointly leasing prominent storefront space in La Jolla as a La Jolla Information Center and LJVMA office. The board also agreed that we should seek applications for the post of executive director. Those wishing to apply for the position

should submit a brief statement of interest by e-mail to me at The board will then send out a request for qualifications to those interested. Board member Egon Kafka came equipped with a sample of the new street light fixture that will be used on parts of Prospect, Girard and Wall Street. The first 15 of 48 lights are now being installed. We don’t know yet when the remainder of the lights will be installed, and, until they are, the safety and security issues will not have been solved. Please help us out by calling the city at (619) 527-7500 to report lighting and pothole issues.

been hired in place of the ranger who recently resigned, but it remains to be seen what that individual has been authorized to do. Without a doubt, we back the group’s rights to free speech. We just wonder why those speaking need tables blocking free access to the views and why vendors without permits can set up shop. Maybe they could just stand there, wearing their official permits around their necks and answering questions when asked. We think it’s time for another look at the situation.

time to ban vendors at Children’s Pool It was so wonderful to walk on the beach at Children’s Pool recently.

mike Stevens a model to follow Oh my! Your 10 Question column with Mike Stevens in the April 7 was so heartfelt. Your diagnosis has opened the window to the real possibilities of life, here every day. What a gift for you and anyone that read your answers. You spoke about someone who inspired you at the onset of your diagnosis, realized the impact it had on your life, and now have gone on to do the same. I don’t have lung cancer, however, your words did inspire me about life in general. Yes, we miss the flower garden right next door, many a sunset, the gorgeous sea at our back door, and appreciating loved ones in our lives. I’m sure you can laugh at things now that seemed so important, and worth fighting about prior to your diagnosis. Aren’t you glad that is over? Spending your precious time playing with life on so many fronts is a reminder to all of us. Cathleen Christian La JoLLa

From Coller, A20 One of our responsibilities will be to appoint representatives to La Jolla’s alphabet-soup boards, including the Planned District Ordinance Committee (PDO), Traffic & Transportation Board (T&T) and the La Jolla Community

and others want our potholes fixed, but how about the Light contacting the City and Sherri Lightner’s office about: • The utility undergrounding on Genter/ Draper. The city’s own signs say “Completion April 2010” — that was a year ago and the poles are still up. I called the District 1 office and was told there were “delays.” I could figure that out. How about someone steps up and gets it done. • The very nice landscaping in the “throat  at La Jolla Parkway and Torrey Pines is dying — rapidly. Is it not being watered? It seems foolish to spend lots of money on a very attractive beautification project simply to let it die. Now would like to hear about that.

CommunitY View By linColn Foster La Jolla Most of Prospect Street has single lanes of traffic in opposing directions and was never designed for diagonal parking, let alone valet parking. Traffic engineers I've spoken with in many communities indicate diagonal parking abutting singlelane traffic carrying over 5,000 average daily trips is never recommended because a parked car backing out always stops traffic. The 1200 block of Prospect Street, with a number of restaurants and retailers, is several times above the 5,000 ADT threshold. When you overlay valet parking with diagonal parking on single-lane traffic, traffic is stopped every time a valet attendant backs out to drive to a remote lot. Instead of a

parking space generating a single traffic-stopping event once every hour or two, we now have a single valet customer's car stopping traffic three-times: once to take the car to a remote lot; when returning the car via a U-Turn, and, finally, when the customer gets his car, backs out and drives away. Multiply this by 12 valet spaces with cars moving in and out frequently every hour, and you can see why the "congestion" on Prospect Street is artificial. Now there is a concerted move afoot to add another four spaces, for a total of 16, with the argument that Eddie V's restaurant is coming to town. Well, Eddie V's is just occupying the former Chart House site and does not constitute an "new" restaurant venue. Chart

House, Trattoria Aqua, Crab Catcher all operated for several years without the additional spaces. Conclusively, valet affords some convenience for the fine restaurant customer, but the consumption of street parking by valet spots is unfriendly to other retailers, and the resulting manufactured congestion has earned La Jolla a bad rap as a traffic nightmare and discourages many potential visitors. The City of San Diego must deny the applicants additional parking spaces, but allocate some of the existing 12 to the Eddie V's site, as a fair compromise. The most practical and beneficial configuration for the community would be to relocate the 12 contiguous spaces midway between their present location and the Eddie V's venue.

The book buddies visit each others’ classrooms or gather under trees on the school grounds for a 30-minute reading session several times throughout the month. For years now, veteran Gillispie teacher Connie Engelhardt’s Grade 1 class has been paired with Grade 6. For the first few months of each school year the sixth graders read to the younger students.

changes once the Grade 1 students become confident readers mid-way through the year. The older students then become attentive listeners. In addition to reading together, the older students are sometimes called upon to help their younger peers with lessons in math, writing, Spanish, and social studies. Engelhardt said, “This program helps the children establish a sense of belonging at Gillispie. It brings the school community closer together when younger children have the ability to interact with the older students, who they often see on the playground or at school assemblies. I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to see students come full circle at Gillispie. My former first-grade students return to the classroom as confident sixth-grade leaders and mentors.” Sixth-grade teacher Jen Chaney added, “This program gives the sixth graders a chance to teach and be in an advisory role. They get to help, be counted on, and looked up to — it’s the students’ chance to take on the role of teachers.” The success of the Book Buddies program is evident on the Gillispie campus and throughout the community as students can be seen racing towards an older child they proudly introduce as their Book Buddy.


Week in SportS

Vikings earn split against Islanders The La Jolla High Varsity baseball team split a pair of Western League games against Coronado last week to leave their record at 7-9 overall and 1-3 in league play. The Vikings jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first contest against the Islanders behind RBIs from Tyson Youngs and Bradley Zimmer only to see Coronado come back and rally for a 3-2 victory. Jake Linsky pitched a complete game in the loss. La Jolla bounced back in the second game of the week to defeat Coronado 10-2. The Vikings once again jumped out to an early lead, but this time they never looked back. The Vikings lashed out against the Islanders pitching staff with 17 hits. Zimmer led the way with four hits and three RBIs. Freshman shortstop Brett Volger and junior third baseman Kevin Usselman each had three hits and an RBI.

Menehune Contest a big success On Saturday, April 16, the La Jolla Shores Surfing Association hosted their 11th Annual Menehune Surf Contest at La Jolla Shores for youth, ages 18 and under. The sun and surf conspired to produce a perfect contest day of abundant sun and surf at La Jolla Shores. More than 125 contestants surfed in the one-day event featuring longboard, shortboard, and novice divisions.

While the kids wowed spectators with their skillful surfing maneuvers, the beach came alive with banners, tents, and good vibes as dozens of surf club volunteers signed in competitors, passed out goodie bags, judged heats, tallied scores, and hosted a BBQ, raffle, and silent auction for the participating families. For complete results, go to

La Jolla schools produce plethora of water polo talent Twenty seniors off to play college ball By Rick LeBeau Contributor Colleges across the U.S. will be reaping the benefits of high-quality water polo programs at La Jolla’s high schools. The freshman class of 2011 will include no fewer than 20 seniors graduating from The Bishop’s School, La Jolla High and La Jolla Country Day. Bishop’s was the undisputed powerhouse this year for both boys and girls. Each won CIF championship and placed several players on the first and second teams when the AllCIF teams were selected by the county’s coaches at the end of the season. La Jolla proved a strong adversary this year, pushing Bishop’s in the boys Division III semifinal, while the Viking girls lost to the Knights in the finals in their first appearance in the championship match. Matriculating to high-quality college programs is a tradition for players at both schools, and many former local players have gone on to garner NCAA championships to add to their resumes. This fall, Bishop’s will be sending Drew Hoffenberg to Princeton, an annual contender for best program on the East Coast. Drew was first team All-CIF as well as Player of the Year. Joining Hoffenberg on the eastern seaboard will be Adam Wrobel, attending George Washington University, and Charlie Reed, who will play at Fordham in New York.

La Jolla High’s Larry andrews, goalie, will play next season at Santa clara, while Bishop’s Drew Hoffenberg, (No. 10) will head to Princeton to play collegiality. andrews and Hoffenberg are two of 20 local water polo athletes playing in college next year. RiCk LeBeau Photo

Staying home to play on the West Coast will be David Higginson (UCSD), and John Paul Engh, who will be donning the crimson and gold at USC. Matt Michalko (also first team All-CIF) was recruited by several

perennial contenders for the NCAA crown, and is narrowing his choices from among Pepperdine, UCSD, and UCLA. The La Jolla’s boys team produced several players who will extend their water polo careers as well. Dylan Hallman was recruited hard by several schools in the east, ultimately choosing MIT for his next destination. James Hixson will head off to USC, while Christian Clark will play at Cal. Goalie Larry Andrews will wear cap No. 1 at Santa Clara. The girls varsity at Bishop’s, coached by Doug Peabody, will be say goodbye to Claryann Olofsson-Loo, a dynamic 2-meter offensive player, to UC Santa Barbara. Kristen Casey will be playing water polo in the Ivy League, testing the waters at Harvard. Kaylee Kastrup will join Cal Lutheran’s squad and Jasmine Carrillo will be playing at Siena. Bridget Vaughn is weighing her options, with Cal Poly Pomona currently the front-runner to get her services next year. La Jolla’s most successful season ever will springboard several players into collegiate

water polo as well. Leading the Vikings out of La Jolla will be Victoria Frager, who was first team all-CIF and high scorer for the Vikings. She will be playing at Harvard while pursuing her degree. Teammate Meagan Moreland was recruited on both coasts, and will soon be playing occasionally against Victoria at George Washington University. Greta Gettelfinger will be following in the footsteps of her two brothers, both of whom played under coach Tom Atwell before playing intercollegiate water polo. Greta will be in the pool at UC Santa Clara next year. Stevie Schweighardt, whose brother also played water polo at LJHS and Brown University, is deciding between rowing competitively for USD, or jumping back in the pool to play goalie for Hartwick, a small New York college currently ranked in the top 12 in women’s water polo. As for La Jolla Country Day, it has two athletes heading to the next level in Liam Devine (Johns Hopkins) and Gabi Shevel (Chapman).

The Art of Pysanky Learning from egg-spert Randal Gardner

What brought you to La Jolla? It’s the best place in the world to balance work, life, and the spirit.

By Jenna Jay f you see Randal Gardner this spring, he might stop to give you a hollowed and intricately decorated Easter egg. Better yet, he might offer to show you how he made it. Gardner, rector at St. James By-the-Sea Episcopal Church, is known around the community for his interest in Pysanky, the Ukrainian art form of Easter egg decorating. During the Lenten Season, Gardner puts to use his artistic skills, handcrafting dozens of the Ukrainian eggs at a makeshift home studio in La Jolla. Recently, he shared the art form with attendees in a series of Friday night classes at the church that took place March 18 and 25 and April 1. In the classes, Gardner guided students through the 3- to 4-hour Pysanky process that includes drawing deHot waxed applied signs on raw eggs with a kistka creates with hot beeswax the egg designs. and dying them in progressively deeper color baths in bold hues of yellow, red and black. “This was one of the smaller turnouts,” Gardner said of the class. “We had six to seven people a night, and we had a couple of families who came all three weeks. By the end of the three weeks they were producing some pretty cool eggs.” Gardner, who has been practicing the Ukrainian egg-making for several years with his wife and children, is enamored with the process as both an art form and for its religious symbolism. “The egg is a symbol of the Resurrection,” Gardner said, “partly because if you look at it, it’s a tomb out of which

La Jolla Villagers mark 40 years of friendship

La Jolla Cultural Partners

By KirBy BrooKs The La Jolla Villagers were born when founding president Jane Howells and her friends got kicked out of the La Jolla Newcomers Club in 1971. “Well, we didn’t get kicked out exactly, but you were supposed to graduate and we didn’t want to lose all of the friends we had met,” recalled current president Cherry Lee, adding, “We wanted to continue to meet regularly.” And meet regularly they have. The La Jolla Villagers celebrated their 40th anniversary on March 23 with a luncheon at the La Jolla Country Club. Of the 27 past presidents, 11 still-active presidents attended and four former inactive-presidents (Clarice Kuck, Marion La Roca, Fran Whidden and Jinx Pitrofsky) even arrived. Whidden traveled from Arizona to be there! Lee, who will pass the torch to the next president this summer after serving as president for two years, is a

founding member but spent 25 years away from the group while teaching at La Jolla Country Day School. “I cheated,” she laughed. “The other two founding members have been here for all 40 years.” Along with Lee, founding Villagers members include Pat Jackson and Mary Wayne. But the 40th anniversary luncheon wasn’t just about gabbing and gobbling up country club fare, the ladies also listened to a presentation about the history of San Diego’s Little Italy by

Jim Bregante. Upcoming events will include a lecture by art historian James Grebl, and a presentation by Douglas Gordon, “Normandy Loves Us … The Untold Story.” The group also plans to travel to Carlsbad to visit the Gemological Institute of America, which is quite fitting as their newsletter is called the “Villagems.” The Villagers — ages 45 to 90 — is one busy group of women. Each month, they host Adventures in Eating, Fourth Fridays Bridge, Cou-

ples Bridge, Games Galore, Sunday Supper Club and other events. Most are ladies-only, but the Villagers’ better halves are invited to Couples Bridge and the Annual Christmas Brunch. The Villagers also have a book club, the Bookworms, but it isn’t your standard. Instead, it is a traveling library. The ladies report on their latest paperback read (much easier to tote around from meeting to meeting than hardbacks, noted Lee) before swapping. The Villagers continue to

meet on the fourth Wednesday of the month for lunch (September-May) a tradition that began on the fourth Wednesday in March back in 1971. Before the La Jolla Country Club, the South West Yacht Club and the Marine Room hosted the Villagers for their charitable luncheons. Friendship and philanthropy is the glue that has held the Villagers together for all these years. UC San Diego’s Shiley Eye Center, the San Diego chapter of Meals On Wheels, and Becky’s House are their chief causes, although they adapt according to local organizations in need. During the San Diego fires, for example, the Villagers donated to the Salvation Army. “Maintaining our friendships has been the most important part of being a La Jolla Villager,” Lee emphasized. “Even while I was playing hooky for all of those years [while teaching], I stayed in touch by playing golf and tennis with my friends from the group.”

About Membership ■ The La Jolla Villagers has a 100-member cap. There are currently 85 members. ■ The Villagers are always looking for new friends.

How do you catch a unique rabbit?

Easter always falls between March 22 and April 25. True. Just like Passover, which is dependent on the phases of the moon and has different dates each year. Easter is also a movable feast. In other trivia, the first Easter basket was given the appearance of a bird’s nest. Egyptians were initially the ones who exchanged eggs to symbolize the resurrection of Christ. It was later that the tradition was passed down to early Christians. Hot cross buns, made by European monks, are counted among the earliest Easter treats. They were given to the poor, during the month of Lent. —

fRom eGGs, B1 comes a living thing. There’s something about it that’s strong enough to contain pressure from the outside and yet weak enough that from the inside a very small creature can break free.” Traditional Pysanky uses many designs on the eggs that are religious symbols, such as the fish, which represents Christianity, as well as crosses that signify Christ, poppies that relate to joy and beauty and also wheat, a symbol for good health and harvest. The process of making the ornate Ukrainian Easter eggs is labor-intensive, but also therapeutic for Gardner, who makes it clear he enjoys making them for the activity, not just the culture. (“I’m not an artist, I’m not Ukrainian; I just have fun with it,” he noted.) Patient as both teacher and designer, Gardner leads occasional Pysanky workshops and classes, walking students through the eggdecorating and dying procedure. The multiple-step process begins with rinsing raw eggs in a vinegar wash. The artist then dips a heated kistka, or hot wax pen, in beeswax, and draws wax designs onto the egg before soaking it into a dye bath with the lightest hue desired. Wax is continually added to the egg between rounds of increasingly darker color baths, until the egg is dyed a rich black color and layers of color under the wax are ready for reveal. The unveiling of the egg’s rich colors come from heating the wax on the egg next to the flame on a candle, buffing off the excess wax. The decorated eggs are then varnished and dried, and can be blown out using a kit or needle to rid of the egg’s interior contents. In total, the Pysanky process can take up to six hours for completion.

the drying rack between dye applications. Jane Coursin attended the Pysanky workshop and turned two of her eggs into earrings to wear to church sunday.

“It’s a kind of artwork that can be performed in an evening, and that’s kind of fun,” Gardner said. Finished eggs can be found in gift shops for upwards of $40. Of course, La Jolla residents are sometimes recipients of Gardner’s own decorated eggs. “We’ve got a box of other ones we’ve done over history,” said Gardner, who has

Volunteers needed to advocate for children Voices for Children seeks volunteers to become CASAs (Court Appointed Special Advocates) for foster children. It doesn’t require any special background to be a CASA, just the wish to help a child. Since 1980, the mission of Voices for Children has been to advocate for the well-being of abused and neglected children. There are some 6,000 children living in foster care in San Diego County, most of them without family members able to take care of them.

some on display in his home. “We’ll have them for a while and we give a lot of them away. Over the years we’ve probably made 100 or so and we have very few still in our possession.” For adventurous egg decorators looking to decorate Ukrainian Easter eggs on their own, Gardner suggests purchasing Pysanky kits from online vendors.

CASAs are recruited, trained, and supervised by Voices for Children staff members and interface with agencies, legal counsel, and community resources to identify and protect the best interests of their assigned foster children. Voices For Children offers monthly information sessions for those considering the position.

Finding ourselves loo-less in La Jolla

Let Inga tell you ... There are certain things you never really appreciate until you don’t have them. Like water, for example. Now I know there are folks out there who go camping in the wilderness and bathe in streams and do all that nature-y stuff. But Olof and I are not among them. We are strictly running-water people. So it was with no little dismay that I returned home from errands recently to find a bevy of San Diego Water Department trucks on my street and our house without water. Turns out a section of the street just north of us had caved in. But this was not what broke the water main. It was the

Bobcat that they’d sent out to investigate the sagging street that fell through it that broke the water main. Most optimistic guess for water: seven hours. But sure enough, at 5 p.m., after a certain amount of sputtering, water once again coursed through our pipes. A mere 10 minutes later, I turned on the kitchen faucet, basking in renewed thanks that we live in a land of potable water. Nothing. Nada. Not so much as a drip. This was not a good sign. I wandered out to chat it up with the water department guys who were by this time my new best friends. Terrible thing, they said. The fittings on the pipes in my neighborhood are so old that it didn’t take much pressure to blow the main again a few hundred feet south of the first break as soon as they turned the water back on. No idea when the water will be back up again. Olof wandered in a little after 7 p.m. He’d been gone

since 4:30 a.m., and he’s not terribly excited about going out. He wanted a Scotch and dinner and a prone surface, in that order. And water for a shower. As if by magic, we hear rumblings in the water heater. Is Olof the Water Whisperer? The water has come back on! For exactly two minutes. NOOOOOOOO!!! I’m just kicking myself. Why didn’t I use that time to run around and flush toilets, rinse dishes, wash salad greens? After a whole day without water, the house is starting to smell like an F-rated restaurant. I chat it up with the water guys again. Another ancient fitting has blown yet further down the line. But this one looks really really bad. Gotta dig up the street. He hopes we’ll have water by morning. I improvise a water-free dinner. Olof plotzes. An hour later, those dinner dishes and pots are smelling particularly ripe in the unseasonably warm weather. I’m tempted to put them outside in trash bags (we don’t have a garage) but fear

hosting a rodent bacchanalia. All night long we are serenaded by the sounds of jackhammers, beeping trucks and lots of clunking. Of course, we’re massively grateful they’re out there. But the person who could make a soundless jackhammer would get our vote for the Nobel Prize. Olof has left several faucets in the “on” position. Because this time we have A Plan. We also have No Confidence. We envision the water mains on our street being repaired 10 feet at a time, while we go waterless for weeks. At 5:11 a.m. we awake to the sound of water gushing from the faucets. We bolt from bed and by predetermined arrangement, race around flushing toilets, speed washing rancid dishes, filling up buckets, leaping into showers. We have no idea how many minutes, or even seconds, we will have water. But we will not be fooled again! At 5:16 a.m. we’re finished. We did it! Our

own little Quadrathlon. It occurs to us that this is more cardio than we’ve had in years. This time, the water actually stays on. But we are no longer naïfs. We have peered into the holes in the street and now know just how decrepit the infrastructure really is. We have seen

the future, and it is seriously rusty and corroded. But for the moment, we have showers. And more appreciation of water than we have had in years. — Look for La Jolla resident Inga’s lighthearted looks at life every other week in The La Jolla Light. Reach her at

To Market, To Market, where the chic and savory menu changes each day By Kelley Carlson very day offers a fresh experience at Market Restaurant, with its everchanging menu and locally bought ingredients. “Our commitment is to doing great food every day, 365 days a year,” said chef/owner Carl Schroeder. The restaurant acquires produce and seafood from farmers markets and fishermen daily, and from local sites such as Chino Farm in Rancho Santa Fe and Valdivia Farms in Carlsbad. And the menu never has a chance to become stale — Schroeder diversifies his offerings on a day-to-day basis. One constant is the restaurant’s signature dish, Cabernet Braised Prime Beef Shortribs, although some of the sides vary. Recently, the item was served with spring peas, Forest Mushroom Roast, asparagus and onion-potato purée. The beef shortribs are among Schroeder’s favorites, along with the soups, including Thai Carrot Soup and Local Asparagus Soup & Truffled Grilled Cheese. Additional entrees on the menu may feature items such as Prime Ribeye Cap Pavé & Potato Gnocchi, the Miso Glazed Double Jidori Chicken Breast and Farmers’ Market Vegetable Tasting. Save room for dessert — there

raw fish, to be prepared by sushi chef syd Marshal, is on display.

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: Market’s Point Reyes Blue Cheese Souffle and Satsuma Tangerines are S’mores, Apple Turnovers, Meyer Lemon-Rhubarb Crepes, ice cream, artisanal cheeses and more. Guests who want to try a little of everything can order from the tasting menu, where they can select one item in each of four categories, usually a starter, two entrees and a dessert. The cost is $68 per person, and is an additional $39 with wine pairings. About 70 people can be accommodated in the main dining room, which radiates warmth with earth-toned colors like persimmon and chocolate. The aptly named Red Room, which Schroeder recommends for its intimacy and better acoustics, can seat some 30 guests. The dining areas open at 5:30 p.m. daily, and Schroeder said it’s best

to have reservations most days. “We don’t aggressively seat; we space our seating,” he said. However, reservations are not necessary in the 40-seat sushi/bar area, which begins service at 5 p.m. There are a couple of TVs to entertain guests, who may sit on bar stools or at candle-lit tables, and there are dimly lit paintings on the wall. The full restaurant menu is available, along with sushi, sashimi, and rolls such as Red Dragon (eel, cucumber, avocado, layered spicy tuna and teriyaki) and the signature Market (tempura shrimp, spicy tuna, jalapeño, yellowtail and chili aioli). And there are plenty of drink options for restaurant customers, from wine and beer, to sake, bourbon, brandy and specialty drinks, such as the Strawberry-Basil Lemon Drop and Cucumber Gimlet. For the best Market experience, Schroeder recommends pairing wine with food. “By talking to the servers and the sommelier (Brian Donegan), there are a lot of different resources,” he said. Eventually, Schroeder plans to hold two to three wine dinners each year. The first one will be “a trip through Italy,” featuring regional Italian dishes with Market’s flair. The date is yet to be announced.

French-inspired fashion gets an ‘ooh la la’ at Arc benefit


he Jewels of San Diego presented their “Carrousel du Louvre Fashion Runway Extravaganza” on April 9 at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina. Guests gathered to enjoy lunch, auctions, music, dance, and spring and summer fashions to raise much-needed funds for The Arc of San Diego’s work with kids and adults living with disabilities. In recognition of their support for The Arc, Mayor Jerry Sanders sent over a proclamation naming April 9 “John and Phyllis Parrish, and, Gaby and Richard Sulpizio Day.” The Sulpizios donated $1 million for The Sulpizio Family Arc Center of San Diego.

Kyota Scholarship gala shines a spotlight on human achievements


n internationally famed stem cell scientist, a renowned mathematician and an artist who has created a new form of expression brought their worldfamed talents to San Diego for a one-timeonly experience April 4 at the annual benefit gala for the Kyoto Prize Symposium held at the Hilton Bayfront Hotel. Designated as laureates of this year’s Kyoto Prize, they came to San Diego from areas as disparate as Hungary and South Africa and represented three varying categories — advanced technology, basic sciences and arts and philosophy. The laureates included Dr. Shinya Yamanaka of Kyoto University and UC-San Francisco, representing the field of biotechnology and medical technology; Dr. Laszlo Lovasz of Hungary’s Eotvos Lorand University, representing mathematical sciences, and William Kentridge of South Africa, representing the fields of painting, sculpture, craft, architecture and design. Each was selected for the lifelong contributions they have made toward the betterment of human society. The black-tie gala serves as the distinguished opening ceremony for the 2011 Kyoto Prize Symposium, which continued through April 6 with free public lectures and presentations by individual laureates at San Diego State University, UC San Diego and the University of San Diego. The benefit gala also introduced the recipients of the 2011-2012 Kyoto Prize Scholarships, awarded to three students from San Diego County and three from greater Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico. Each student will receive a college scholarship valued at up to $10,000. Irwin Jacobs is honorary chair of the benefit gala and Masashi Oka, president and CEO of Union Bank, and Peter Farrell, founder and board chairman of ResMed, are co-chairs.

Local theaters join forces to present acclaimed one-woman show about health care conundrum By Lonnie Burstein Hewitt There’s nobody quite like Anna Deveare Smith, an award-winning actress/playwright who creates unforgettable performances by channeling the essence of real people caught up in contemporary crises. Alone onstage, she gives vibrant, theatrical substance to multiple points of view. “Documentary theater” is a cold way of describing the experience she shares with her audience. As Bill Moyers, who interviewed her on his television Journal, said: “She turns a houseful of strangers into an intimate community.” As Smith herself said, she’s in search of the “spooky truth.” Her latest project, “Let Me Down Easy,” deals with the current health care conundrum and presents 20 characters chosen from some 300 people she interviewed during an 8-year period, including doctors and patients, athletes and actors, and a broad range of winners and

See website for details. losers in the game of Life and Death. The show’s origins go back to 2000, when Smith was

invited to the Yale School of Medicine to create a performance about how patients and doctors communicate. Smith’s stint as a Visiting Professor made her realize how much more could be revealed of the ways we take of ourselves and each other. This is not just a show about health care. It’s a fascinating look at particular bodies and spirits, and like all of Smith’s plays, it’s about the importance of paying attention to what people say. “Let Me Down Easy” comes to us thanks to a grand collaboration of theaters: locally, San Diego REP, La Jolla Playhouse, and Vantage Theatre, and further away, Second Stage in New York, where the current version of the show originated, and Arena Stage in Washington D.C., which launched this year’s national tour. Vantage, the smallest of the theaters, started the local ball rolling. Artistic director Dori Salois (a longtime La Jolla resident who is

Acclaimed actress/ playwright Anna Deavere smith plays 20 characters in the second stage production of ‘Let Me Down easy.’ COURTESY active in the health care community) had known Smith way back when. “We were actors together, in a show off-off-Broadway, where we had to do speeches about our experiences in theater. Anna did an interview with a casting director that even then showed what a powerhouse she was. Later on, she said, ‘You should produce me!’ and I always thought, ‘Someday!’ ”

When Salois saw “Let Me Down Easy” in New York, she knew the day had come. She went to Sam Woodhouse, artistic director of the REP, who could fit the show into his season, but not his budget. So he went to Christopher Ashley, artistic director of La Jolla Playhouse. Within a week, discussions were underway. Woodhouse said the collaboration has been complex, but rewarding. “This is an extremely provocative and important piece of American theater, and with a little help from our friends, we’re able to bring it here,” he said. “We’ve always been interested in partnerships, they are a smart, synergistic way to do business.” Chris Ashley agreed. “Every show we’re doing this season is in partnership with a different organization. We think it’s the key to making San Diego an arts destination, and I jumped at the chance to work with Anna again.” Ashley had directed Smith

in “Fires in the Mirror,” her 1992 piece about the explosion of racial tension in a Black and Jewish Brooklyn neighborhood that won him an award for Outstanding Direction, and the play an Obie award. “Let Me Down Easy” is Smith’s newest addition to her series of plays exploring the American character, which also includes “Twilight, Los Angeles, 1992” about the riots after the beating of Rodney King. She has written books and articles, she’s been featured in films like “The American President” and “The Human Stain,” and she’s had major television roles in “Nurse Jackie” and “The West Wing,” but it’s her work in theater that has won her the most acclaim, including a MacArthur “genius” grant. Like “Twilight” and “Fires in the Mirror,” “Let Me Down Easy” will eventually be aired on PBS-TV. But there’s nothing like seeing true genius, live and in person, onstage.

‘Art Meets Fashion’ to present cutting-edge collaborations By Lonnie Burstein Hewitt The big buzz in the arts world this season is the Cword: Collaboration. Propelled by a nervous economy, organizations are joining together to present events they never could manage alone, and the resulting mix of energies and talents has turned a tough situation into a gift to us all. Art Meets Fashion is one of the splashiest of these collaborations, with events scheduled from now to September, including a VIP fashion show at the international airport, exhibitions at venues in North Park and downtown, and a catwalk launch at NTC Promenade, where the public will have a chance to strut its own stuff. The entire schedule can be perused at The Idea: To set up teams of artists and designers, have them come up with a theme for a project, and see what magic they can create together. Each team includes a visual artist, a fashion designer, a photographer or videographer to document the process, and a teacher to create a lesson plan from it. The Objective: To initiate productive collaborations, spotlight the wealth of talent in San Diego, and inspire young people to get involved in the arts.

ABoVe: Designer Gordona Gehlhausen, of team ‘Beauty’s Privilege,’ will have her work on display at downtown’s Goga Boutique. DaviD Hartig LeFt: Artist Alexandra Hart, of AMF team ‘evolution transformed,’ will offer her take on how modern fashion evolved from primordial sea creatures at Visions Art Museum, ntC Promenade. Henry young

According to Patricia Frischer, co-founder of AMF and coordinator of San Diego Visual Arts Network (SDVAN), a comprehensive guide to visual artists and art events, “We really want to share the sparks that fly when you put artists and designers and documentarians and teachers together. We also want to encourage local artists to believe they can have successful careers right here in San Diego,

without having to leave for Los Angeles or New York.” How did AMF get its start? “The airport has a terrific arts program, and Constance White, the program manager, is tremendously stylish,” said Frischer. “Several years ago, when we met, I commented on her clothes, and she said, ‘If you ever want to do something at the airport, let me know.’ ” Frischer is no stranger to ambitious arts projects. In the

summer of 2009, she staged an event called “Little & Large,” which invited local sculptors to make jewelry and jewelers to make sculpture, and involved displays at 43 galleries plus a meet-the-artstars launch at downtown’s Hotel Sé, with a catwalk over the swimming pool. “The response was wonderful!” Frischer said. “And that made us think: There’s really a need for this!” At the launch, Frischer

met fashionista Felena Hanson, head of FOCUS (Fashion Opportunities Connect Us), a networking group for emerging professional designers. Hanson said she’d always wanted to do a project with a catwalk, she loved bringing people together, and she already had the domain name “Art Meets Fashion.” So the first AMF team was born. From their initial public meeting in February 2010, when over 100 interested participants showed up, Frischer and Hanson knew they were on the right track. Now, after many months of planning, their numbers are impressive: 44 team members, 15 host venues, and more than 50 volunteers. “It’s a great opportunity for everyone,” Hanson said. “Most artists and designers work in solitude. We’re giving them a chance to crosspollinate and brainstorm and inspire each other. We’re providing exposure to new audiences, and documentation that will allow us to peek behind the scenes of the creative process. And with the educators, we’re creating opportunities for the next generation.” If AMF’s online catalog is any indication, this is one grand collaboration you won’t want to miss.

What one person thinks “expensive”, isn’t so to another. Everything is relative. This is especially true for those purchasing local real estate with Euros, Loonies, Yen or Yuan. In fact, for many European, Canadian, Japanese or Mexican real estate investors, purchasing prime coastal real estate in La Jolla can now be done at an amazingly steep discount. All thanks to Mr. Bernanke, who as you know, has continued to cut points in the Fed rate, which has helped trigger further declines in the dollar versus other foreign currencies. And as of this writing, the US dollar against the Euro currently hovers around $1.39, which can be a dream or a nightmare; all depending upon the denomination of ones bank account. La Jolla real estate has long been the desired target of many wealthy foreign investors. But with the falling dollar, La Jolla real estate has now become a screaming bargain to foreign investors around the world.
