BY DAVE SCHWAB ant to see La Jolla up close and personal? A good way is on a Segway. For about a year, Albert Galura and James Russell have been running a Segway tour business called We Love Tourists at 908 Pearl St. The company offers two-hour excursions in the Jewel taking in surrounding neighborhoods and the beachfront on the increasingly popular Segway PT (personal transport) — a two-wheeled, battery-powered, self-balancing electric vehicle people ride upright. On April 22, Russell had a typical tour group, the Fernando family, a mom and dad and their son and daughter vacationing from New Jersey, on his 8:30 a.m. tour. “I give three or four tours a day,” said Russell, noting business picks up as summer draws near. “We’ve had a few locals, people living on my route, but mostly it’s people from all over San Diego — and the world.” Russell said Segways were

LJHS mourns life of slain graduate STAFF AND WIRE REPORTS Three 17-year-old Spring Valley gang members have been accused of murdering a young college student who was a La Jolla High graduate, Garrett Berki, after luring him to a late-night robbery in Paradise Hills by posing as sellers on Craigslist. The suspects were arrested shortly after the fatal shooting, which occurred about 10:30 p.m. May 11, according to San Diego police, and were charged as adults at their arraignment. SDPD homicide Lt. Kevin Rooney identified the three Spring Valley youths as Shaquille Jordan, Rashon Abernathy and Seandell Jones. A bail review hearing is set for Friday. “They were charged with first-degree murder, robbery and shooting at an occupied vehicle at their arraignment on Friday,” said Rooney. “Their bail has been set at $5 million. They pled not guilty.” Rooney added Berki and his girlfriend had arranged to buy a $600 laptop computer that was listed on Craigslist.



July 4th fireworks in need of donations

The Segway tour group stops off at the Recreation Center. PHOTOS BY DAVE SCHWAB invented by Dean Kamen of New Hampshire, who was actually trying to build a wheelchair that went up stairs when he came up with the idea. Since then the invention has taken off — literally. “It’s like riding a giant joy stick,” joked Russell, demonstrating how to operate a Segway, which is done by body posture leaning forward or back. “If

you need to stop fast, pull back the handlebars.” Segways, which go to 12 mph, stop three times faster than a bicycle, he added. Awkward at first, operating a Segway is surprisingly easy, quickly becoming familiar and fun. “Don’t bang into any curbs; lean forward nice and easy,” implores Russell as he


BY DAVE SCHWAB Organizers of La Jolla’s Fourth of July fireworks display are none too pleased with the San Diego Regional Water Quality Control Board’s decision last week to require an application and permit fee. With the La Jolla event already imperiled by a lawsuit and facing a funding crunch, the water board’s ruling would require operators of over-water fireworks displays to apply for an annual permit and prove they have cleaned up debris. “It’s $1,500 for the permit fee which we’ve never had to pay before,” said Deborah Marengo, a board member of the La Jolla Community Fireworks Foundation, a nonprofit formed in 2009.

But the water board’s requirements are not as onerous as those first proposed last year, which would have forced organizers to monitor the affected water and sediment for pollutants, said David Barker, a supervising engineer for the agency.

Flame of the Forest, Butea monosperma, brightens our region

Natural La Jolla

By Kelly Stewart

In early January, I begin looking for one of my favorite trees to produce its first bloom. On my daily bus ride to work during this time of year, I enjoy going past the Scripps Institution of Oceanography where spectacular specimens of this tree may be found. Along the ocean side of the road winding up the hill, there are seven Flame of the Forest trees. They are twisted and gnarled and look like bonsai trees all grown up. This year I spotted the first bloom on Jan. 17 and the blooms have been increasing daily since then. Flame of the Forest trees lose their leaves over the winter and the beautiful red flowers arrive first, with the leaves coming later. The Flame of the Forest is native to tropical southern Asia, but grows very well all over San Diego. In India, the flowers are used to produce

dyes that are used in the Hindu celebration of Holi. This joyous spring festival begins on the last full-moon day of the winter season (March 20 this year) and is celebrated by people playfully throwing colored dyes and water at each other and throughout their neighborhoods, while bonfires are lit the night before in anticipation. Leaves are now beginning to appear on the trees but the gorgeous red flowers should last at least a couple more weeks. Kelly Stewart writes about the natural wonders around La Jolla. Contact her at

Coalition comes back to save fire pits

Beach fire pits have been saved by private-public partnership. never any vacant fire pits in the city of San Diego during the summertime.” Mayor Jerry Sanders “toasted” fire pits, saying “the tradition of these bonfires has been enjoyed by San Diegans for generations … Here’s to the families and visitors who enjoy the crackle of a bonfire and the taste of toasted marshmallows.” Noting most of the fire pits are in his 2nd Council District, Kevin Faulconer said, “All of us, collectively, we saved the fire pits. I am very aware of how special these fire pits are. I am so very proud of the public-private partnership that we’re here today to unveil to keep these fire pits going.” Bob Kelly of The San Diego Foundation said the nonprofit is pledging $35,000 toward saving the fire pits, the third year it has supported the fundraising effort. “There’s no question people love the fire pits,” he said. The La Jolla Community Foundation contributed $4,500 toward fire


pits. Phyllis Pfeiffer, chair of the nonprofit and publisher of the Light, said that the primary goal of the group is to “create public spaces that bring people together and help build a sense of community: So the fire pits were a natural for us.” Sanders had cut maintenance of fire pits from next year’s budget plan, something he has done several times in recent years. But private donations have always kept the popular concrete rings or squares in operation. It’s estimated that maintenance will cost at least $120,000 in the next fiscal year, which begins July 1. Some of the same groups contributed to saving the fire rings when they were about to be axed last year. An anonymous donor saved them three years ago. Tourism industry officials feared the loss of the fire rings would take away one of San Diego’s best selling points, the chance for normally landlocked visitors to experience a beach bonfire.


BY DAVE SCHWAB Once again, teamwork is saving San Diego’s fire pits for beachgoers. Last week, officials from the San Diego Convention & Visitors Bureau joined the mayor and city council members Sherri Lightner and Kevin Faulconer in announcing $65,000 worth of contributions toward the estimated $120,000 needed to keep and maintain the 186 fire pits at city beaches and Mission Bay. “We have a great coalition put together working cooperatively to find the funds necessary to keep the fire pits on our beach,” said Joe Terzi, president/CEO of ConVis, which has partnered with the San Diego Foundation, La Jolla Community Foundation and the San Diego Hotel-Motel Association to save the beach amenity. “A key component in a lot of the promotional work we do features fire pits, these iconic symbols,” Terzi said. “Fire pits have become part of the beach culture. It’s one of those elements we don’t want to see go away.” The convention bureau donated $25,000 in the form of an oversize check presented at a beachside press conference. Lightner noted La Jolla Shores, which she represents, only has seven fire pits but added, “They’re always used, and I rather imagine there are

Judge blocks removal of seal rope Superior Court Judge Lisa Foster on Friday ordered the city of San Diego to temporarily keep the guideline rope at the Children’s Pool up in compliance with a city council resolution passed last year. The city was planning to remove the rope on May 15 despite the council resolution, due to an earlier decision by the city’s planning commission. Animal rights activist Bryan Pease, who is seeking to have the rope up yearround, filed the court motion. The rope separating humans and harbor seals was set to be up during the marine mammals’ pupping season that starts Dec. 15 and was due to The guideline rope at the Children’s come down on Pool meant to separate humans from May 15.

Meanwhile, the San Diego Council of Divers, Children’s Pool Friends and the San Diego Adopt a Beach Program sponsored a beach cleanup at Children’s Pool Beach on Sunday.

FROM MURDER, A1 Berki, a 2010 La Jolla High School graduate who lived with his mother in Mission Beach, was slumped over the wheel of his car in the 3000 block of Artemia Way when police found him, Rooney said. Medics took the mortally wounded man to Scripps Mercy Hospital in Hillcrest, where he was pronounced dead about a halfhour later. At La Jolla High School last Thursday evening, students painted memorial benches on campus honoring their slain alumnus.

“Garrett’s passing is a terrible, senseless tragedy,” said Dana Shelburne, La Jolla High principal Friday morning. “The loss of a young life under such circumstances eludes our ability to understand, which makes the healing process all the more difficult. The thoughts and sympathies of the entire La Jolla High School community go out to his family and friends.” Shelburne talked about the significance of the school’s memorial benches. “When we lose a member of the Viking family, that’s

where the kids go,” he said. “It’s a spot where they can gather and leave messages. It’s a nice tradition that helps them process what’s happened and come to terms with it.” San Diego County Deputy District Attorney Kristian Trocha said the three youths charged are members of two gangs named the East Side Skyline Piru and O’Farrell Park Banksters. “These three guys met with Berki to buy the laptop computer in Paradise Hills and they said, ‘Show me the money and we’ll show you the computer,’ ” said Trocha. “Garrett shows the money and one guy pulls out a gun and takes Garrett’s and his girlfriend’s cell phones and then they ran away to a nearby apartment complex.” Trocha said Berki followed two of the robbers who got into a car with a third man.

Students painted memorial benches at La Jolla High School last Thursday in honor of Garrett Berki. DAVE SCHWAB

“They followed them to get their license number,” he added. The chase led onto and off of a freeway, at which time, Trocho said Berki “boxed the three defendants in” on Artemia Way, a cul de sac. “Their (cars) were facing each other,” Trocha said. “The (defendant’s) car passed Berki and the rear

passenger took one shot through the windshield that struck Garrett in the chest and shoulder area.” After the shot was fired, Trocha said the defendant’s car continued down a few blocks before turning into a dead-end street and crashing. “They bailed out on foot and went into a canyon,” said Trocha, adding police,

FROM FIREWORKS, A1 Only SeaWorld San Diego, which conducts regular fireworks shows at Mission Bay during the summer, will have to conduct water monitoring. The increased cost of fireworks permitting, said Marengo, means community fundraising to support the event in La Jolla this year will be even more important. And the June 1 deadline she’s set to achieve fundraising goals to ensure the event will go on is even more firm. “Fundraising is going very slowly,” Marengo said, noting Fourth of July seems further away in most people’s minds than it really is. “I don’t want to go and pay these permit fees if we’re not going to raise all the money we need,” she warned. “So we’re imploring

dogs and a helicopter unit were responding to the scene. “They found these three guys hiding in the backyards of different houses,” Trocha said. “They had a backpack with a laptop computer in it. Police also found 45-caliber shell casings in the defendants’ car.” City News Service contributed to this report.

A decision on whether to require monitoring for groups other than Sea World was deferred by the water board, Barker said. Still, organizers will have to apply for a permit that he estimates will cost around $1,400 annually, clean up debris after the show, and file reports that describe how many pounds of fireworks were used and how the cleanup was conducted, among other things, Barker said.

Nursery school holds open house Sunday

FROM SEGWAY, A1 leads his five-person tour group single-file out of his shop heading toward Fay Avenue and La Jolla High School’s stadium and outdoor pool. “(Actress) Raquel Welch is probably the most famous alumni from here,” Russell noted as the tour group observes first-hand residents, students and businessowners in their day-to-day routines heading through WindanSea toward the beach cruising past quaint singlefamily homes. Segwayers are regarded by most passersby as a curiosity. Under California law, Segway riders are considered pedestrians, said Russell, noting, in La Jolla, most sidewalks are wide enough for Segways and people to pass side by side. He said problems between Segwayers and pedestrians are infrequent, but do happen on occasion. “There are people who say, ‘This is a sidewalk, you’re not supposed to be on it,’ he said. “I try to explain … but some people have their minds made up without actually having any knowledge of the machines or what they do.” At the Children’s Pool, Russell pulls the group over where they lean their vehicles against a fence before going down to the pool’s crescent-shaped walkway. “This is an ongoing source of shenanigans,” Russell tells the group. “People fighting to close the beach for seals.

it open for people. It just goes on and on.” It’s presently the seal’s pupping season, Russell points out, adding he was an unanticipated witness to a live seal birth. “There’s nothing beautiful about the miracle of life, especially when you incorporate sand and sea gulls and what not,” he said. As the group heads out across the lawn at La Jolla Cove, cautions Russell “watch out for children and small dogs, although they should be on leashes.” After taking in the Cove and the growing sea lion colony there, the group heads back through town going past the La Jolla Rec Center and The Bishop’s School, before returning to the Russell’s storefront. All four Fernandos were impressed by the tour. “It was a lot of fun, the best tour in La Jolla,” said mom Catherine Fernando. “I thought he (Russell) had good jokes,” said dad Thomas Fernando. “I thought it would be a

WHAT BUYERS WANT IN HOMES TODAY Buyers have a long list of what they want when home shopping, but one of the biggest desires is a good deal. But that is not all they want. A national survey recently asked real estate professionals to list the other top desires of their clients. Here are four things that often made the list of home buyer preferences in addition to a “good deal”. 1) Homes that are in good condition. With the increase in amount of down payment required to obtain loans today, most buyers do not have extra cash to do repairs or redecorate. 2) A bargain with incentives. Even when they buy foreclosures, they expect it clean, freshly painted, and with well kept landscaping. Some sellers even offer gift cards to home improvement stores or pay part of the buyer’s closing costs. 3) Outdoor living area. Increasing buyers like outdoor fireplaces, built in BBQ areas, fountains and outdoor lighting. 4) Open kitchens. Most buyers prefer the kitchen and family room to be open to each other so that they provide a large family gathering area.

Families play on J.J. Day to welcome sculpture heading for Kellogg Park


everal hundred people attended a gala celebration, “the 15th of May, J.J. Day,” for the “un-whaling” of the 15-foot bronze sculpture of J.J. the orphaned baby gray whale. The event, which included a live auction, raffle prizes, wine, food and hors d’oeuvres, was held from 6 to 9 p.m. at Birch Aquarium. Sculptor D. Lynn Reeves noted his life-size bronze sculpture is a portrait of the marine mammal rescued by SeaWorld San Diego in 1997. Mary Coakley, who chaired and organized the special event, took the lead in fundraising to make the playground sculpture for the benefit of children a reality. The sculpture will be installed this week in Kellogg Park Playground in La Jolla Shores. PHOTOS BY DAVE SCHWAB

Oceanographer honored for lifetime achievements “Walter Munk Day” was celebrated May 10 with a proclamation from the County Board of Supervisors honoring the renowned La Jolla Scripps Institution of Oceanography oceanographer for his distinguished career and voluminous body of work over 70 years. Supervisor Pam Slater-Price presented the award during a gathering at The Riford Center. Munk has received numerous scientific awards — the 2010 Crafoord Prize in Geosciences for his pioneering contributions to the study of ocean circulation, tides and waves and their role in the Earth’s dynamics; the Alexander Agassiz Gold Medal of the National Academy of Sciences in 1977; the National Medal of Science in 1983; the Kyoto Prize in Basic Sciences in 1999 and the inaugural Prince Albert I Medal from the International association for the Physical Sciences of the Oceans in 2001.

Redistricting voices speak out at La Jolla meeting By Joe Tash Attendees at a meeting of the San Diego Redistricting Commission on May 11 at the La Jolla Woman’s Club got a taste of the complex task facing the panel as it redraws City Council district boundaries. The seven-member redistricting commission, which was appointed by a panel of retired judges last year, is charged with balancing the populations of the current eight City Council districts based on census data, and at the same time carving out a new ninth council district. The meeting was the last in a series of public hearings in which the public was invited to speak on redistricting

issues before the commission drafts its first version of a map outlining the new district boundaries. City Council District 1, now represented by Sherri Lightner — which includes the communities of La Jolla, Carmel Valley, Del Mar Heights, Torrey Pines, Rancho Peñasquitos and University City — will be trimmed during the process, as it now has the largest population of any council district in the city. Census data shows District 1’s population at 199,464, and the target population for the redrawn City Council districts is 144,624. In an earlier interview, Lightner said she expects Rancho Peñasquitos to be moved to

another district, and that she would like to see La Jolla reunited. La Jolla was split between districts 1 and 2 during the last round of redistricting in 2001. Lightner told the commission she doesn’t want to lose any of the communities in her district, but understands that change is inevitable. As the process moves forward, the redistricting commission will sift through the testimony of hundreds of San Diego residents who have attended the hearings in each of the current City Council districts, said Midori Wong, the commission’s chief of staff. Seven or eight groups have already submitted pro-

posed new maps, some of which focus on specific council districts and some of which cover the entire city, said Wong. A number of speakers supported the Coast and Canyons map, which keeps most of the current District 1 intact, adding in sections of La Jolla and University City while placing Rancho Peñasquitos in a different council district. Bill Bowers of La Jolla told the commission that it should keep La Jolla, University City, the Golden Triangle and UCSD together in the same council district. He drew a laugh from the crowd when he said that each time he looks at the golden statue of the angel Moroni atop the Mormon Temple next to I-5, he imagines the figure calling out, “Remember the Coast and Canyons plan.” Rancho Peñasquitos residents, for their part, told the commission that they don’t want to be placed in a new council district with the communities of Mira Mesa and Kearny Mesa, as advocated in a plan proposed by the Asian and Pacific American Coalition, or APAC. The coalition wants to concentrate

which are also part of the Poway Unified School District. “APAC’s desire to put Peñasquitos in District 9 seems more like a race grab than a benefit to the people of Peñasquitos,” said resident Julie Adams. Another map, called the “Community of Unity,” was presented for the first time to the commission at the May 11 meeting. That map consolidates district maps proposed by a number of different communities, including Latinos, AfricanAmericans, and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender community. “You can see that, feel that,

FROM REDISTRICT, A10 (San Diego) has become more diverse day by day,” and the unity map would bring more diversity to the City Council, said Murtaza Baxamusa, who presented the unity map to the commission. Barrett Tetlow, executive director of the Republican Party of San Diego, offered the commission another take on a citywide map, which he said includes nine districts whose populations don’t vary by more than 2.5 percent, are compact and contiguous and contain no “gerrymandering.” The Republican plan, he said, creates three Latino districts and one Asian district. “This is a legal map that does everything,” Tetlow said. Some questioned why ethnic and

special-interest groups are pushing so hard to create district maps that favor their demographics, which the groups have labeled “empowerment.” Susan McKnight said her grandfather emigrated from Germany and never sought an “empowerment district” for people of his ethnic background. “What concerns me is what happened to being a San Diegan, and an American citizen and not fighting for every bit of empowerment?” McKnight said. La Jolla resident John Beaver said he supports the Coast and Canyons plan, and the reunification of La Jolla. “When the rubber hits the road, there will be a lot of forces trying to influence your decision. I hope you keep in mind what the citizens have to say,” Beaver said.

It may get worse. You may not need surgery to make it better.


If you have Dupuytren’s contracture, the rope-like cord you feel in the palm of your hand will continue to cause your fingers to bend toward your palm, and may worsen over time.

Ask your doctor about XIAFLEX®, the only nonsurgical, FDA-approved treatment for adults with Dupuytren’s contracture when a cord can be felt. XIAFLEX® is a prescription medicine used to treat adults with Dupuytren’s contracture when a “cord” can be felt. Over time, the thickening of this cord in your hand can cause one or more fingers to bend toward your palm, so that you cannot straighten them. XIAFLEX should be injected into the cord by a healthcare provider who is experienced in injection procedures of the hand and treating people with Dupuytren’s contracture. XIAFLEX helps to break down the cord that is causing the finger to be bent. IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION XIAFLEX can cause serious side effects, including: • Tendon or ligament damage. Receiving an injection of XIAFLEX may cause damage to a tendon or ligament in your hand and cause it to break or weaken. This could require surgery to fix the damaged tendon or ligament. Call your healthcare provider right away if you have trouble bending your injected finger (towards the wrist) after the swelling goes down or you have problems using your treated hand after your follow-up visit. • Nerve injury or other serious injury of the hand. Call your healthcare provider if you get numbness, tingling, or increased pain in your treated finger or hand after your injection or after your follow-up visit.

• Allergic reactions. Allergic reactions can happen in people who have received an injection of XIAFLEX because it contains foreign proteins. Call your healthcare provider right away if you have any of these symptoms of an allergic reaction after an injection of XIAFLEX: hives; swollen face; breathing trouble; or chest pain. Before receiving XIAFLEX, tell your healthcare provider if you have had an allergic reaction to a previous XIAFLEX injection, or have a bleeding problem or any other medical conditions. Tell your healthcare provider about all the medicines you take, including prescription and non-prescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements. Be sure to tell them if you use blood thinners such as aspirin, clopidogrel (Plavix®), prasugrel hydrochloride (Effient®), or warfarin sodium (Coumadin®). Common side effects with XIAFLEX include: swelling of the injection site or the hand, bleeding or bruising at the injection site; and pain or tenderness of the injection site or the hand, swelling of the lymph nodes (glands) in the elbow or underarm, itching, breaks in the skin, redness or warmth of the skin, and pain in the underarm.

XIAFLEX is a prescription medicine used to treat adults with Dupuytren’s contracture when a “cord” can be felt.

XIAFLEX should be injected into a cord by a healthcare provider who is skilled in injection procedures of the hand and treating people with Dupuytren’s contracture. The proteins in XIAFLEX help to “break” the cord of tissue that is causing the finger to be bent. It is not known if XIAFLEX is safe and effective in children under the age of 18. What should I tell my healthcare provider before starting treatment with XIAFLEX? XIAFLEX may not be right for you. Before receiving XIAFLEX, tell your healthcare provider if you: • have had an allergic reaction to a previous XIAFLEX injection. • have a bleeding problem. • have any other medical conditions. • are pregnant or plan to become pregnant.

By Lynne Friedmann In 2009, the Center for Nutritional Genomics at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies was founded with the goal of propelling research — on the molecular level — of nutrition and its impact on metabolism in diabetes, obesity, cancer, exercise physiology, and lifespan. Just two years later, this collaborative and highly targeted research approach is producing impressive results. At a press conference on May 12, Salk scientists announced the simultaneous publication of two research studies, in the influential journal Cell, disclosing critical discoveries in the area of diabetes and metabolism. One study revealed how insulin increases fat storage during feeding (news release at The other study led to the discovery of a novel “fasting pathway” that points the way to a new class of diabetes drugs that can restore abnormally high blood glucose level to normal (news release at “(These are) the upstream discoveries that ultimately lead to improvements in human health,” said William R. Brody, M.D., Ph.D., president of the Salk Institute. Together, the studies reveal that a group of enzymes (histone deacetylases or HDACs), plays a central role in controlling the body’s energy balance by getting sugar production rolling when blood glucose levels run low after prolonged periods of fasting or during


In people with Dupuytren’s contracture, there is thickening of the skin and tissue in the palm of your hand that is not normal. Overtime, this thickened tissue can form a cord in your palm. This causes one or more of your fingers to bend toward the palm, so you cannot straighten them.

Do not bend or straighten the fingers of the injected hand until your healthcare provider says it is okay. This will help prevent the medicine from leaking out of the cord.

scientists present their findings. the night. Without a tightly regulated balance between glucose production in the liver and surplus glucose storage in muscle and fat tissue, blood sugar levels can fluctuate erratically ultimately causing damage to cells and tissues. “The metabolic system is like a hybrid car,” said Marc R. Montminy, M.D., Ph.D., professor in the Clayton Foundation Laboratories for Peptide Biology, at Salk. “In the daytime we use glucose as high-octane fuel, but at night we switch to the ‘battery,’ which in this case is stored fat.” Unfortunately, in patients with type II diabetes, the liver churns out glucose throughout the day, even when blood sugar levels are high. Salk researchers looked at the ability of class II HDACs to control blood glucose in

mouse models of diabetes and found that suppression of all three HDACs simultaneously restored blood glucose levels to almost normal in four different models of type 2 diabetes. “These exciting results show that drugs that inhibit the activity of class II HDACs may be worthwhile to be pursued as potential diabetes drugs,” said Reuben J. Shaw, Ph.D., a Howard Hughes Medical Institute early career scientist and an assistant professor in the Molecular and Cell Biology Laboratory at Salk. Recently, many pharmaceutical companies have been developing HDAC inhibitors as anti-cancer drugs, so Shaw speculates that some of these compounds, which may or may not be useful for cancer, could have therapeutic potential for the treatment of insulin resistance and diabetes. If so, this could mean new therapies in the clinic in a shorter time period than if drug discovery were starting from scratch. Lynne Friedmann is a science writer based in Solana Beach.

Help name a new species of deep-sea worms Celebrate World Ocean Day by helping Birch Aquarium at Scripps and researchers from Scripps Institution of Oceanography name two new species of deep-sea worms. One name will be selected from the public at large and another will be chosen from a K-12 school. Suggestions can be submitted through May 25 at or at the aquarium during its monthly SEA Days event on May 21. Scientists from the Scripps Marine Invertebrate Phylogenetics Lab, which identified the new species, will se-

a newly discovered, deepsea hesionid worm. Courtesy lect three finalists for each worm. Chosen names will be revealed online and at the aquarium on World Ocean Day, June 8, and will become the official scientific name of the species. Scripps scientists, along with the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute,

discovered the worms living upon whale carcasses that had fallen to the ocean floor off Monterey. The worms, which measure only a few centimeters in length, are part of the family Hesionidae. Only 10 hesionids have been described from the deep sea. Scripps scientists have discovered six new species of worms on whale falls. Traditionally, the person who first describes a newfound plant or animal is entitled to name it, but Scripps is inviting the public to share in the process.

Merchants adopt Main Street model for group’s structure BY DAVE SCHWAB Laying the groundwork to promote the interests of businesses, La Jolla Village Merchants Association (LJVMA) last week established four new working committees — design, organization, promotion and economic development. They area patterned after the Main Street national program the group has adopted as its business model. Main Street operates under the auspices of the National Trust for Historic Preservation and aims to help commercial districts with revitalization by “leveraging local assets,” according to its website. “They are the heads of the amoeba that really do the work,” said group president Phil Coller of the role of working committees at the group’s May 11 meeting. Noting the contract has been signed by the city and LJVMA is manager for the La Jolla Business Improvement District (BID), Coller asked for committee volunteers. Egon Kafka, Bryan King and Scott Levin stepped forward to be on the design committee, which will be

concerned with Village streetscape and beautification. The organization committee is to be staffed initially by Tom Brady and Phil Coller. A total of seven people volunteered for the promotion committee, which will have branding, promotions and special events under its umbrella. They are Sheila Fortune, Michelle Lerach, Glidia Holland, Claudette Berwin, Robert Lane, Nancy Warwick and Kevin Smith. The economic committee will be comprised of Scott Levin, Kevin Smith and Kafka. Robert Lane reported that the group is “assessing how we want our web presence to look and constructing a plan of action of building a new website.” Lane said the idea is to establish a website with “very high search engine optimization” integrating a “social media presence.” A seven-member Executive Director Selection Committee is also being formed by the group comprised of four officers of the board and three independent parties. The

selection committee’s purpose is to find a new administrator to oversee the BID’s day-to-day operations. Secretary Sheila Fortune said a merchant mixer is being planned as an outreach measure to recruit new members and make them aware of the association and what it’s doing. “We should be doing a campaign splitting up the Village and every one of us take a zone and it will be our job to go out and invite merchants to the mixer,” she said, adding Karl Strauss Brewing Company at 1044 Wall St. is donating space. Fortune said it’s important for the merchants group to get off on the right foot by “getting this community engaged in the Village.” A debate ensued over whether there should be a requested donation for the mixer, with Egon Kafka arguing that “free” events are often not taken seriously. Bookstore owner Nancy Warwick cautioned the group should not move forward with the merchant mixer “until we get together some real concrete information” to give out.

Rancho L’Abri offers continuum of care Founded in the 1970s by addiction treatment pioneer Dr. John Milner, Rancho L’Abri is continuing the tradition of care and success in addiction treatment begun by its founder in creating comprehensive, long-term care. “We are not a 28-day, spindry treatment center where all you really do is get clean and sober,” said David Newson, Rancho L’Abri CEO about the center’s private-pay program that does not contract with insurance companies. “We provide something not being done, that cannot be found anywhere else, in San Diego County — an entire continuum of care, everything from detox, to outpatient treatment to sober- , transitional- and after-care environments,” he said. L’Abri’s treatment model can take 18 to 24 months to complete, he added, noting,“We’re with our patients every step of the way as they get themselves back into life again.”

Newson said experience has taught that addiction treatment far removed from a standard living environment can make it easier for some people to relapse. “Just about anybody can get clean and sober in a vacuum, but when they went back to real life they would relapse,” Newson noted. Rancho L’Abri is currently housed in a 4,000-square-foot facility in Hillcrest and will be moving into a new facility about double that size next month.

The addiction treatment center has a proven track record. “Rancho L’Abri has more than 3,000 alumni,” said Newson. “That’s a very large base of support from all over San Diego and San Diego County. It’s proven that people fare the best with a support network. We can build on that recovery community.” For more information, call (866) 368-9333 or visit

La Jolla’s finest bloomed beautifully at tour time Our View Each week, the La Jolla Light gives kudos to those shopkeepers and property owners who go the extra distance to make the town more visually appealing. This week, we wanted to give a special kudos to the La Jolla Historical Society for its knock-your-socks-off garden tour last Saturday. And what a coup the society pulled off. The final house on the 13th annual Secret Garden Tour of Old La Jolla (which doubles as a fund-raiser for the society’s programs and projects) was the estate of Ron Burkle, the self-

made billionaire founder of Yucaipa Companies. The six-acre property, perched atop a La Jolla Farms prominence, has got to be one of the most exquisite properties in the country if not the world. Those lucky enough to buy tickets to the garden tour felt as if they were transported to one of the great estates of Europe. Text messages were flying all day Saturday as tour-goers encouraged family and friends to join the tour and see the fabulous home above Black’s Beach.

Each of the gardens on the tour provided a view of some of the best outdoor spaces enjoyed by La Jollans. So thanks to the La Jolla Historical Society and the residents who graciously opened their gardens and homes for the community to visit. And special thanks to Ron Burkle for allowing us a glimpse of a small slice of heaven. Kerry Klein is next year’s chair of the garden selection committee and is asking the community to nominate great gardens for the tour. If you know of one, call her at (858) 692-3983. Her goal is to top this year’s successful event.

Generosity raises a total of $156K for ‘conquer the cuts’

COMMuNiTY LeaDer’s View By BeTh PeNNy ANd dANA irwiN Chairs, La Jolla High School Conquer the Cuts Committee

Thanks to our generous donors, the Conquer the Cuts campaign raised a grand total of $156,000. We were thrilled with the outpouring of support from parents and the community for “Conquer the Cuts,” and it was inspiring to see the ASB pep rallies and donations from our students and teachers, too! It may have seemed a bit strange to end the campaign during the week that the district distributed 700 lay-off notices, and the day that the PTA rallied at Seaport Village against the budget cuts. We promised a campaign that would have a clear beginning and end, and so we “officially” concluded on May 13 as promised. However as these difficult weeks of budget negotiation progress, the Foundation of LJHS “Conquer the Cuts” account will remain open to accept any donations to help preserve the outstanding reputation of La Jolla High School. We were so happy to have started the

campaign out with a $10,000 gift from the Roger, Rosalind and Chance Abbott Family. It prompted a wonderful domino effect throughout the parent community of La Jolla High. In the final days of the campaign, a matching grant offered by a member of the La Jolla Foundation, elicited another $10,000 within 15 hours. Teacher Appreciation Week yielded several tributes to our dedicated teachers and really got the students involved. We were particularly moved by the pep rallies and donations from the students. We are so grateful to the La Jolla Light for their weekly coverage and feel reassured that La Jolla High has strong partners in the battle to preserve the academic excellence of our school. Although there are many budget battles ahead, we think “Conquer the Cuts” was a great lesson in civic responsibility for the students. They were not required to participate, but they saw the problem and decided they wanted to make a difference. This generation will need energetic leaders who can be creative and positive in seeking efficient solutions to the world’s challenges.

Dog ban upholds Marine Mammal act In the recent ban of dogs from the La Jolla Children’s Pool, the City Council has committed to uphold the 1975 Marine Mammal Protection Act, which bars any interference with the natural behavior of marine mammals. Although I love dogs and volunteer with a local animal shelter, I distrust the dogs’ owners who don’t respect the seals’ needs for protection and repose.

entrepreneurs CONNeCT with future innovators

In prohibiting dogs from the vicinity of Casa Beach (The Children’s Pool), seals have one fewer battle to fight when resting on the shore because owners don’t always restrain dogs from scaring the seals. The next step is for the city to create a Marine Mammal Park at Casa Beach, which would serve public education, promote safe viewing of harbor seals and guarantee quiet interlude for the seals while they’re not hunting for food.

By sTeve hOey Senior Program Manager CONNECT Currently, San Diego faces an alarming mismatch between the interests of students and the workforce needs of our growing innovation economy. According to a survey by the regional trade organization San Diego Workforce Partnership, San Diego alone faces a shortage of 5,000 to 10,000 engineers. In an effort to combat this emerging problem, CONNECT has developed the Entrepreneurs for Young Innovators program. Supported by grants from Biogen Idec and SDG&E, CONNECT’s program brings entrepreneurs from local technology and life science companies with unique and interesting products into the classrooms of San Diego’s middle and high schools to impress upon the students the importance and relevance of an education in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and inspire and encourage students to pursue courses, degrees, and careers in related fields. Participating schools include The Preuss School, High Tech Middle and High Schools, and Horace Mann Middle School. Using their innovative products as tangible examples, these entrepreneurs connect with the students

on a personal level and encourage them to think about future career possibilities. “Not only can they speak to the benefits of a background in the sciences, technology, engineering and math sectors, but they can also relate their personal experiences with the lifechanging discoveries and fascinating creations that come out of these empowering subjects,” said Kevin Dunn, who manages the Entrepreneurs for Young Innovators program at CONNECT. Still in its first year of operation, the Entrepreneurs for Young Innovators program has effectively inspired over 900 middle and high school students to actively seek high school diplomas and pursue additional coursework in technology and life science by introducing them to charismatic entrepreneurs. Students surveyed reported their interest in life science and technology increased as a result of the presentation. In addition, 80% of students credited the program for having a positive impact on their aspirations to attend college. “I had never in my life heard the word ‘entrepreneur’ and now that I know its meaning it has inspired me to go to college,” commented one of the students participating in the program.

Robert Fred Ellsworth (1926-2011) By Judge Margaret McKeown Ambassador Ellsworth died peacefully in the hospital on May 9, 2011, in San Diego. A resident of Washington, D.C. for many years, he married The Rev. Eleanor Ellsworth, who is Senior Associate Rector at St. James-bythe-Sea in La Jolla, in 2002. Born June 11, 1926 in Lawrence, Kansas, he received a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Kansas in 1945 and a Juris Doctor from the University of Michigan Law School in 1949. He was admitted to the bar in Kansas, Massachusetts, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Supreme Court. The University of Ottawa (Kansas) and Boston University awarded him honorary doctorate degrees. He was named Knight of Honour, Johanniter Orden, Berlin in 1996. After a brief stint as a lawyer and a lecturer at the University of Kansas School of Business, he was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives from Kansas in 1960. He served three terms in Congress (1961-1967), where he was a member of the Joint House-Senate Economic Committee. He was instrumental in the creation of the International Monetary Fund’s Special Drawing Rights, a foundation of modern international economic policy. He often remarked that he served in Congress at a time when collegiality and bi-partisanship were the hallmarks of the legislative body. In 1968, Ambassador Ellsworth served as national political director of Richard M. Nixon’s successful presidential campaign and was a founding member of the President’s White House staff. President Nixon appointed him as U.S. Ambassador and Permanent Representative to the NATO Council (the North Atlantic Treaty Organization) in the late 1960s (1969-1971). He shuttled among various European capitals during a very sensitive period of the Cold War. Upon his return from Europe, he was appointed by President Ford as Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Affairs and then Deputy Secretary of Defense (1974-77). President Ford awarded him the Presidential National Security Medal. Later he was a Consultant to the Office of the Secretary of Defense. He was no stranger to the military, having served as a line officer in the U.S. Navy during World War II and the Korean Conflict. Ambassador Ellsworth remained active in foreign affairs after his government service, with a reputation as an advocate of strong defense and the promotion of international cooperation. From 2003 to 2007, he was appointed by Congress as a Commissioner of the US-China Economic and Security Review Commission. More recently he has been a member of the Executive Committee of the International Advisory Board of the Graduate School of International Relations and Pacific Studies, University of California, San Diego (IR/PS).

Country Day captures tennis title La Jolla resident Torreys top Vikings for second straight section championship

la Jolla Country Day’s Warren Woods helped the Torreys win back-to-back CiF titles last week. Photo and illustration by Phil dailey

By Phil Dailey The La Jolla Country Day boys tennis team made it back-to-back CIF championships last Friday against La Jolla at the Barnes Tennis Center in Point Loma. The Torreys — who needed three tiebreakers to earn the win — topped their cross-town rival 11-7. One of the key turning points in the match came during the first rotation when senior Warren Wood came back from a 5-2 deficit against La Jolla’s Jakob Karnopp. Woods won that match 7-6 and turned the tide for the defending champs. “We went into that match using a completely new lineup and all the boys supported it and went out and made it happen,” Country Day head coach Joslynn Burkett said. Last season, the Torreys topped Cathedral Catholic for the title. For the Vikings, they cruised to the finals in search of the school’s 42nd team title in boys tennis. “When they see La Jolla, they are somewhat intimidated,” Burkett said of facing off against the Vikings. “They went after them and you could just tell they wanted to win it.” Burkett is only in her second season as the head coach for the Torreys. She also led the girls team to a CIF championship against La Jolla last fall. “Coach Burkett is a proven winner and everything about her sets the perfect example of how to be a winner, both on and off the court, for our middle- and highschool tennis players,” Country Day athletic director Jeff Hutzler said. The team’s top two players — Woods and Daniel Fairman — are college-bound next fall. Woods will play at Claremont McKenna, while Fairman will play at Yale.

earns CIF honor

Francis Parker School senior and La Jolla resident Michael Schreiner was named the 2010-2011 CIF San Diego Section Boys’ Scholar-Athlete of the Year. Schreiner will be presented his award, along with a $2,250 scholarship check, at an awards ceremony on June 3. Schreiner, a two-sport athlete at Parker, excelling in basketball and golf, was among the 500 student-athletes from across the 10 CIF sections who applied for this honor. The applications process carries with it a minimum unweighted GPA Michael of 3.5 and includes an essay section that Schreiner is reviewed by state CIF readers. One male and one female winner were selected from each of the 10 sections; from those section winners, one male and one female scholar-athlete are chosen as the State Scholar-Athletes of the Year.

LJHS’s Gary Frank notches 100th win By Phil Dailey With the team’s 14-5 win last week against Madison, La Jolla High’s head baseball coach Gary Frank reached the 100-win milestone for the Vikings. Frank, who is in his eighth season as the head coach at La Jolla is also an alumnus of the school. Prior to taking over the head coaching job, he played college baseball at Colorado State before transferring to Cal State San Bernardino. He Gary joined the teaching staff at La Jolla in Frank 1999 and is still the all-time leader at La Jolla in batting average (.400). On the season, the team is 10-15 overall. Here are last week’s scores: Tuesday, May 10 Boys tennis CIF Section championships Division III n La Jolla 18, Valley Center 0 Baseball n Madison 2, La Jolla 0 (12 innings) Eric Pitrofsky pitched 10 innings and had eight strikeouts.

Parity is common with La Jolla Youth Baseball Parity is a good thing in recreational sports. Kids choose rec leagues because it’s supposed to be fun. If they want to play at a higher and more competitive level, they can try out and pay top-dollar to play on a travel team with more elite players from a broad geographic cross section. La Jolla Youth Baseball is a rec league with players of all shapes, sizes and abilities and the goal when forming teams is parity. In a perfect world, every team would be 10-10 and the playoffs would be one-run games. In each of our LJYB divisions — except Shetland where ties are the norm — any team can beat any other team on any given day. The number of come-from-behind wins and one-run games being posted each week is proof that there is parity in the league. This week a couple teams in the cellar knocked off the top teams to tighten up the standings just in time to wrap up regular-season play on Saturday. The “Game of the Week” was played between Mustang rivals Morgan Stanley (8-0) and Cass Street (7-1). It was a close game going into the bottom of the 6th inning with Morgan Stanley leading 6-2 and Cass Street getting the last at bats. Closer Blaise Gimber walked the first two batters followed by a single to load the bases with no outs. The tying run at the plate was Michael Campagna Jr., who leads LJYB with six home runs in the season. He hit a shot to third base where Austin Schroeder made the catch and tags the base for a spectacular double play. “Oh My!” With two outs and two aboard, Kai Leach drove one over the center fielder that scored two runs. With the tying run at the plate — again — Gimber got him to pop up and the game ends 6-4. That’s rec baseball at its finest! Both teams went to Islands after the game and enjoyed their “Kids in Uniform Eat Free” special offer for LJYB players. Saturday marks the end of the regular sea-

Dramas of life play out in works of Stephen Metcalfe Stephen Metcalfe’s career has touched all forms of dramatic writing — screen, television and stage. His first screenplay was “Jacknife” starring Robert De Niro, Ed Harris and Kathy Bates, Stephen directed by David Jones. Metcalfe The adaptation of French director JeanClaude Tachella’s “Cousin-Cousine” followed, directed by Joel Schumacher and starring Ted Danson, Isabella Rossellini and Lloyd Bridges. In the early ‘90s, Metcalfe took the darkly realistic “3000” and turned it into “Pretty Woman” starring Julia Robert and Richard Gere directed by Garry Marshall. Numerous rewrites followed. Among them “Arachnophobia,” “It Could Happen to You,” and “Mr. Holland’s Opus.” Metcalfe has adopted both stage plays and novels. His play, “Emily,” was done for Paramount Pictures. “Time Flies,” by Paul Link, was adopted for producer Laura Ziskin. A.R. Gurney’s “The Old Boy,” was written for Touchstone Pictures, and Peter Mayle’s comic novel, “Anything Considered,” was done for producer Stanley Jaffe and Sony Pictures. In 2002, Metcalfe wrote and directed the independent film “Beautiful Joe” starring Sharon Stone and Billy Connolly. Among his stage plays are “Loves & Hours,” “Strange Snow,” “Sorrows and Sons,” and “Half a Lifetime.” His television credits are also numerous.

hey came. They rocked. They rolled. And in the end, Neveready won La Jolla High’s inaugural Battle of the Bands on May 6 in Parker Auditorium. The prize? A gig for the whole school at a lunch-time assembly for the Find Your Voice Foundation. The judges included students, teachers and area musicians. The contest raised some $700 for the instrumental music department.

Christian Clark provides vocals and guitar as LJHS alumnus Pat Hallahan plays tenor sax for Neveready. The band also features Mike Hom on sax, Declan Halloran on drums and Jay Sanchioli on bass.

The Wreck What brought you to La Jolla? I first came to San Diego in the spring of 1985 to work on a play at the Old Globe Theatre. They put me up in a cottage in Ocean Beach. I was taken on a lobster run to Puerto Nuevo. Someone bought me a Hawaiian shirt.

Future Problem Solver heads to International Competition in Wisconsin

La Jolla Cultural Partners

By KirBy BrooKs Jenny Chen was in fifth grade at Turtleback School in Rancho Bernardo when she met Nancy Myles, and things have never been the same for her. Myles was teaching the Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) program and plucked Chen from the class to join the Future Problem Solving Program International (FPSPI). Myles continues to coach Chen, who is now in Jenny Chen ninth in 2011 grade at La Jolla’s Bishop’s School, and has watched her flourish within the program over the years. When Chen represents California in the International Conference June 9–12 at the University of Wisconsin La Crosse, Myles will be with her in spirit. Founded by Dr. E. Paul Torrance, FPSPI seeks to engage students through creative and critical problem

solving of real-world problems. Along with students like Chen from the U.S., FPSPI involves students from Canada, Australia, Great Britain, Hong Kong, Korea, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Portugal, Russia and Singapore. “Future problem solving is an exciting program that encourages children to learn about the issues occurring in the world,” Myles explained. “The topics chosen by the international organization elevate the children’s awareness of concepts that might not be approached in a regular classroom.” This year the topics range from Healthy Living and Air Transport to Genetic Testing, Water Quality, and Emergency Planning. There are three divisions: Junior (Grades 4-6), Middle (Chen’s division), and Senior (Grades 10-12). Throughout the school year, individuals complete two practice problems and one qualifying problem. Their work is scored by trained evaluators and returned

with feedback (tips for where to improve). Each spring, the top scoring students in the qualifying program (like Chen) compete in affiliate FPSP Bowls and the winners of each advance to the FPSP International Conference. “It’s a good opportunity for kids because it teaches us how to resolve issues and gives us a chance to express our thoughts,” said Chen, revealing the poise that has allowed her to thrive at the competitions. “In school they tell us what to do and how to solve problems by giving us formulas, but this program lets us form our own ideas about major issues.” Chen has taken first place in the California Bowls in grades 5, 6, 7 and 9. She first attended the International Competition in fifth grade and although she didn’t place, she came back the following year and took home the International prize. Although Chen has a good chance of securing a win at this year’s International Conference, she says winning isn’t what

Jenny Chen, right, and coach Nancy Myles pose with the 2008 trophy. COURTESY PHOTOS drives her to compete. “Future Problem Solving allows me to brainstorm solutions for the future and, in the process, learn

about problems that will soon affect our everyday lives,” she said. “It offers me a chance to think outside the box and experi-

ence a new perspective on international issues. No matter whether you win or lose, you will definitely learn something new.” With that said, Chen said she isn’t immune to the thrill of winning. She called it “extremely exciting!” and added, “it gives me the confidence to continue learning and studying. Of course, there is the feeling of accomplishment and that my ideas have been heard.” Chen said she plans to continue with FPSPI through high school and will “perhaps one day be an evaluator.” The college-bound student said she doesn’t know want she wants to do when she gets out of school because she likes all of her subjects —although history and English are among her favorites. Her proud parents will be cheering her on in Wisconsin, as her mother Ying pointed out, “We support Jenny participating in Future Problem Solvers because the program opens kids’ minds.”

Quintessential art gallerist makes a bold, new move By Lonnie Burstein Hewitt This month, longtime gallerist Mark Quint is starting off his second 30 years on the art scene in a whole new space. Quint, whose original 1981 gallery was a tiny place on La Jolla Boulevard flanked by Margaret’s Cleaners and D.G. Wills Books, will have the grand opening of his latest and largest venue on Saturday, May 21 in the 3000-square-foot former home of Jane’s Fabrique on Girard Avenue. All these years, in different locations, he has specialized in bringing a broad range of regional and international artists to local attention. Some call him the man who put San Diego’s art world on the map. In fact, there aren’t many art dealers who have been honored as he was in 2009, with an exhibit at California Center for the Arts in Escondido called “Quint: Three Decades of Contemporary Art.” “I can’t think of any individual who has done more to elevate and promote contemporary art here than

Mark Quint in his new gallery, still a work-inprogress two weeks before opening. Lonnie Hewitt Mark Quint,” said Hugh Davies, director of the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (MCASD). “He put the Mark in remarkable! His impact on the local art scene has been huge and sustained, and we all owe him a great debt. … He’s a brilliant art man, but a decidedly mediocre golfer.”

Of his success, Quint said, “I really like working with creative people. So everything starts off with the connection between myself and the artists. Then I try to connect them with other interested people — curators and collectors.” Quint is all about making connections. He has had galleries around the county — from downtown to Miramar — and one of his greatest achievements was InSite, a border-crossing biennial event he created in 1992 to encourage collaborations between artists and institutions in San Diego and Tijuana. “There were so many venues all over, public and private ones, galleries, museums and universities, and there were just no connections,” he said. “I came up with the name InSite and really liked it. It suggested something insightful, and also the idea of inciting, creating a fire under people.” His inaugural exhibition on Girard, enigmatically titled “Behind What It Is In Front Of,” will display the

McLaughlin, considered the father of West Coast minimalism, was himself influenced by Japanese art and the linear abstractions of Piet Mondrian. McMakin used pieces of vintage furniture found at swap meets and thrift stores to create his own playful take on

McLaughlin’s hard-edge, Zen-cool paintings. This will be McMakin’s sixth show for Quint. “I like how eclectic he is,” Quint said. “He works in so many media — painting, sculpture, photography, architectural design — and I like the whimsical nature of his work.” Quint, who grew up in La Jolla, went to art school in San Francisco, taught at an Episcopal girls’ prep school in Hawaii (”a lot like the Bishop’s School at its beginnings,” he said) and after some years of teaching and surfing, moved back here for good. Today, he lives in the family home he was raised in. Two weeks before the opening, Quint stood in the midst of his new space, where the only things on display were paint buckets and ladders. He looked relaxed and happy. “I like renovating spaces,” he said. “You get a whole new chance and a whole new crowd to come and see what you’re doing. And this is by far the most visible

The husband as reluctant patient

Let Inga tell you ... For three brief days, my husband was the happiest gout sufferer in America. He’d still be, except he didn’t actually have gout. Why, one might reasonably ask, would one be thrilled to be afflicted with such a painful arthritic condition? A few weeks ago, Olof woke up one morning with a seriously swollen ankle on which he could barely walk. He didn’t remember injuring it, which he thought he would have since he hasn’t been able to exercise much. Since May 2010, he has pretty much worked seven days a week. “We just have a lot of business right now,” said

Olof. “But that’s good.” “Only if you live to tell about it,” I said. I have had words with Olof about this, because in addition to not getting as much exercise as his wife would like, Olof has cancelled every appointment I’ve made for his annual physical. “Just to be clear, Olof,” I’d said for months. “If something happens to you, I am putting you in the cheapest nursing home I can find. One of those ones you see on ‘Sixty Minutes.’ ” But despite being totally crippled, Olof, the ultimate Anti-Patient, continued to refuse all medical care and limp off to work. Five days later, as I was arranging an ice bag around his ankle (the extent of treatment to which he would concede), I noticed that his ankle seemed more swollen than ever. “OK, Olof,” I said. “You’re seeing Dr. No first thing tomorrow morning. I am willing to make a massive scene at your office if you cancel.” I’ve written about our primary care physician, Dr.

No, before. As in no alcohol, no sugar, no coffee, no starches and even only teeny-weeny bits of whole grains. She has a particular vendetta against pasta. Dr. No sent Olof for X-rays and labs, citing a preliminary diagnosis of gout. If so, she informed Olof, he would have to start eating a diet rich in lowpurine foods, like coffee, bread, rice, and … pasta. Olof could barely believe his ears. Did the “p” word actually cross Dr. No’s lips? And the “c” word (coffee) too? He called me as soon as he got back to his office, because despite not being able to walk, Olof was still working 80 hours a week. Just in case she changes her mind, he said, could I start making pasta every night? Which, by the way, only he can have? “You want pasta,” he added, “you’ve got to have your own gout.” That night over dinner, we began to wonder if Dr. No’s draconian dietary standards could have, in fact, caused gout in the first

place. But Olof was one happy guy. Olof thinks this isn’t a bad trade-off: He loses a foot but gains pasta. The only downside would be that it could make his upcoming business trip to the UK problematical at best. As a former Air Force pilot, Olof would sooner crawl on all fours to the departure gate than request a wheelchair. Meanwhile, Dr. No puts Olof on a two day ShockAnd-Awe dose of prednisone. He did a little better, but the ankle was still seriously swollen. The labs took three days to come back. Definitely not gout. All arthritic markers were well within normal limits. Devastated, Olof asked: Can we pretend we didn’t hear the lab results? At least through Monday, or linguine with white clam sauce, whichever comes first? Meanwhile, Olof’s ankle gradually got better, but not before Dr. No wisely subjected him to an ultrasound for blood clots. It

may have been a blood clot, but by the time Olof was successfully bludgeoned into going in, it could well have died of old age and/or boredom. Olof, meanwhile, maintains that his medical philosophy has once again been vindicated: If you just

leave things long enough, they will either get better or kill you. Either of which is preferable to seeing a doctor. — Look for La Jolla resident Inga’s lighthearted looks at life every other week in The La Jolla Light. Reach her at

One of the most popular tapas at Roppongi is the Polynesian Crab Stack with mango, pea shoots, cucumber, tomato, red onion, avocado, and peanuts in a spicy ginger-lime dressing.

Roppongi’s new dining room décor is fanciful yet elegant.

Roppongi is ready when you are with fresh, exotic fare By WILL PARSON rom T-shirts to power suits, there is room for everyone at Roppongi. Its namesake is a district in Japan that is famous for its nightlife, and in a similar way the Asian-fusion restaurant in La Jolla caters to all kinds. The patio alone can beat many smaller venues in terms of seating, and its expansiveness provides a series of dining niches tied together by an ever-present upbeat energy. The main dining room leaves a visual impression, as it is lined with statues of Buddhas and dragons, as well as an aquarium. Peer through the water to glimpse the backs of chefs preparing sushi. But for a different look, just sit at the sushi bar around the corner. Across from the sushi bar is the full bar, and across from both is a lounge area. On the patio, you can sit inside a quiet canopy along Prospect. If there’s one thing people come for, said manager Stephen Omahen,

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: Roppongi’s Polynesian Crab Stack it’s the tapas. The current menu boasts 25 different kinds, but if there was one to rule them all, it might be the Polynesian Crab Stack, made with mango, pea shoots, cucumber, tomato, red onion, avocado, peanuts and spicy ginger-lime dressing. And the fact that all 25 of the tapas are half-priced every afternoon makes happy hour a wise choice — an energetic start to a night in La Jolla.

Chef Stephen Window’s sushi entrees at Roppongi have been gradually creeping up on the tapas offerings in terms of popularity. And like the tapas, sushi rolls are half-priced during happy hour. “It’s a new, creative, innovative type of sushi going on,” said Omahen, before highlighting Roppongi specialties like the Sushi BLT-Style and Big Eye Tuna plates. Roppongi might already be a familiar sight, nestled on the corner of Prospect and Faye in the heart of La Jolla, but it was recently remodeled for a “light, brighter, fresher” feel, Omahen said. And the restaurant recently launched its new Bikini Ready menu at a big party. The menu showcases low carbohydrate/low calorie options and “skinny” cocktails. Though that event featured models in Sauvage Swimwear, a bikini is not required attire to order off the Bikini Ready menu. The T-shirt you happen to be wearing should be just fine.

Researcher treks across The Sahara to raise awareness for PKU disease Professor Raymond Stevens, who directs the structural neurobiology program at Scripps Research Institute, completed a six-day, 156-mile ultra-marathon across the African Sahara Desert in April to raise awareness of a disease called phenylketonuria (PKU). A rare, inherited metabolic disorder, PKU patients are unable to metabolize an essential amino acid called phenylalanine, which puts them at risk for severe neurological complications, including IQ loss, memory loss, concentration problems, mood disorders, and in some cases, severe mental retardation. Stevens obtained his spot in last fall’s lottery among ultra-marathon running enthusiasts for the opportunity to compete in the 900-person race, which got underway April 3. Called “Marathon des Sables,” it has been described as “the toughest footrace in the world.” The course is not revealed until the day before the race begins, but it weaves over uneven, rocky ground and massive sand dunes in southern Morocco, where daytime temperatures exceed 130° F. Competitors are required to carry all belongings, including food. The only exceptions are group tents and water. Water is handed out

Showcase will spotlight various cultures at UCSD Multicultural Coexistence, a UCSD student organization, will host a free, culture showcase from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, May 25 in the Great Hall of the International House on campus. The event is open to the public and will feature a number of performances from student groups, including UCSD Hawaii Club, Cambodian Student Organization, Bhangra Team, Gospel Choir, and Kaibai Pilipino. There will also be variety of cuisines (including vegan and sustainable options), and a raffle with prizes from local businesses. For more information or to RSVP, visit

A victorious Ray Stevens completes the ‘Marathon des Sables’ in April. Courtesy in rationed portions at checkpoints. “This event for me in part symbolizes PKU drug discovery and all of the researchers, families, foundations in the PKU community that have come together with the common goal of finishing a long drug discovery race,” said Stevens, who wrote about his adventures on the website of the National PKU Alliance, where Stevens serves on the scientific advisory board. “Running this race is like developing treatments for PKU — three steps forward, one step back, but one just has to keep moving forward and eventually one WILL cross the finish line.” In breakthrough findings, Stevens’ group solved the structure of the liver-produced

enzyme phenylalanine hydroxylase (PAH), deficient in people with PKU. On the first day of the Marathon des Sables, Stevens said he felt as ready as he was going to be. He trained in a 160° sauna. He ran “a lot.” And, with his doctor, he tried to manage the tendinitis that sprung up from overtraining in his left ankle and the shin of his left leg, although neither had fully healed. In the preceding days, he also packed and repacked his supplies, trying to minimize their weight. On the day of the race, he was carrying 2,000 calories of food per day for seven days (including oatmeal, freeze dried packages, almond peanut butter, and pop-tarts), electrolyte powders, a sleep-

ing bag, headlamp and batteries (for running at night), an emergency space blanket, a whistle, a signal mirror, a compass, a knife, a first aid kit, a lighter, and a scorpion venom pump. The first day’s course, about 21 miles, included crossing the largest sand dunes in the Sahara, where many of the runners (including Stevens, whose left leg also began to swell) picked up severe blisters. The physicians in the medical tent were busy “fixing a lot of feet.” The second day’s course consisted of about 24 miles, followed by a third day of another 24 miles. Stevens said he struggled with increasing nausea from dehydration and vomited twice near the third day’s final checkpoint. The next day presented the longest stretch — 51 miles — and one of the hottest days of the race. After the first 18 miles, Stevens was so dehydrated he was put on an IV (one IV is allowed per participant; require a second and you are forced to withdraw from the race). “I had to lay in the sand with a needle in my arm that cost me time,” Stevens wrote, “but after 1 liter of saline solution and 1.5 liters of glucose solution, I felt great being fully hydrated

26-mile marathon stage, Stevens “had his head down, just putting one foot in front of another.” Finally, came day seven, 11 miles … and then the finish line! Was the race was worth it? “Absolutely,” he said. “I enjoyed it fully, which is easier to say now the pain has gone away.” He added that his favorite part was “turning off my headlamp in the middle of the night on the 51-mile-long stage and running up the cold dunes in the dark looking at the stars.” Would he run the race again? “No way,” he laughed. “It was a once-in-alifetime dream.”

Documentary to explore price Hawaiians have paid for paradise By Joe Tash Americans think of Hawaii as a breathtakingly beautiful island chain with white-sand beaches, waterfalls, hula dancers and moonlight luaus. But to those of Hawaiian ancestry, such as Del Mar psychotherapist Hanalei Vierra, the history of the islands is much more complex, consisting of conquest, military occupation and subjugation. According to Vierra, 59, few are aware of “the price Hawaiians have paid for paradise. This is the dark side of paradise.” Vierra hopes a recently completed documentary film, called “Hawaii, A Voice for Sovereignty,” will help educate people about the history of the 50th U.S. state, and advance the cause of Hawaiians seeking to redress past wrongs. Vierra has helped organize a free showing of the film that will include native Hawaiian singing and dance performances and a panel discussion with director Catherine Bauknight, at 6 p.m. on May 24 at the UCSD Cross-Cultural Center.

The path to Hawaiian statehood stretches back to 1893, when U.S. Marines overthrew the monarch of the Kingdom of Hawaii, Queen Lili’uokalani, at the behest of American businessmen who wanted to grow sugar cane and pineapples on the islands’ fertile soil. Following the “bloodless

hanalei Vierra and Catherine Bauknight coup,” Hawaii became a U.S. territory in 1898, and achieved statehood in 1959. In 1993, President Bill Clinton signed a Congressional resolution of apology for the takeover. Today, many native Hawaiians are calling for sovereignty as a means of regaining control of land and protecting their cultural heritage, from language to music to dance. “It really all boils down to the land. They need land to live off of, it’s part of their culture,” said Bauknight, a Pasadena-based photojournalist who began working on the film, her first docu-

a scene from ‘hawaii, a Voice for sovereignty.’ mentary, in 2005. “What happens to the land happens to the people. It took me a very long time to understand how serious and meaningful that is. It’s not just a cliché.” Since the overthrow, said Vierra, Hawaii has shifted from an agriculture-based economy to one dominated by military bases and tourism. People of Hawaiian ancestry are plagued by high rates of health problems, such as strokes and diabetes, along with alcoholism, homelessness and incarceration. “The experiment of statehood has benefitted everyone except the Hawaiians,” Vierra said. “The Hawaiians


are now on the bottom rung of all the social ladders.” Vierra, who was born in San Bernardino, but lived in both California and Hawaii at various times during his childhood, insists his stance is not anti-American, but “pro-Hawaiian nation.” His parents, native Hawaiians who are now deceased, would not embrace his activism on the Hawaiian sovereignty issue, he conceded. His father served in the U.S. Air Force, and later worked as a civil service engineer. His parents lived in Hawaii at the time of the attack on Pearl Harbor. “They would look at me like I was nuts,” he said, “like, ‘How dare you?’”

But he said he wants nonHawaiians and those of the older generation of Hawaiian natives to see Bauknight’s film, so they can understand the desires of those she interviewed, who want more control over their destiny and that of the islands. Bauknight said the film has been shown at a number of film festivals and garnered awards. Her next step is to go back to Hawaii and film an update on the activities of those who are pursuing sovereignty, before the film is released in theaters or broadcast on a national television network in 2012. She also wants to enter it in the Academy Awards competition.

La Jolla luminaries shine at art and fashion events


he Art Meets Fashion project brought a new kind of runway to Terminal 2 at the San Diego International Airport on April 28 — a fashion show featuring the creations of 11 teams of artists and designers. Among the VIPs were a number of La Jollans, including 14-year-old Dagmar Bjork, who is already a professional model and jewelry designer. The First Friday event on May 6 drew hundreds of spectators to NTC Promenade at Liberty Station in Point Loma for a second showing of Art Meets Fashion designs and an open house at some of the 37 galleries that now call NTC home, including Visions Art Museum. Once again, artists and designers who live and work in La Jolla were on display. — Lonnie Burstein Hewitt

‘Life of Riley’ gets laughs, but from annoying characters If you go

Let’s Review

By diana Saenger

The Old Globe has acknowledged the prolific career of playwright Sir Alan Ayckbourn by producing 10 of his plays in the last 25 years. “Life of Riley” (Ayckbourn’s 74th play) is making its world premiere at the Globe, but while it offers many laughs, the story suffers from repetitious pacing and characters who fail to draw us into their dilemmas. Directed by Richard Seer, the story centers on three couples at different stages in their lives who are enlisted to help a friend with only months to live. Colin (Colin McPhillamy) and Kathryn (Henny Russell) are the oldest and complacent with life. Colin is a

■ What: ‘Life of Riley’ ■ When: 7 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays; 8 p.m. Thursdays-Saturdays; 2 p.m. Saturdays, Sundays; 7 p.m. Sundays to June 5 ■ Where: Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre, 1363 Old Globe Way, Balboa Park ■ Tickets: $29-$67 ■ Contact: (619) 23-GLOBE ■ Website: ■ Free, post-show forum: May 31. Discuss the play with cast members. doctor and Kathryn a stayat-home and meddling wife. They are rehearsing for a play, but Colin’s unwillingness to concentrate or pay attention to Kathryn’s babbling continually irritates her. Tamsi (Dana Green) and Jack (Ray Chambers) are middle-aged. Tamsi is also in the play, but her life is falling apart as she detects Jack is having an affair. Monica (Nisi Sturgis) is

married, but has left her husband, George Riley, and is now in love with Farmer Simeon (David Bishins). When Kathryn coaxes the name of his dying patient out of her husband and realizes it’s George Riley, she phones Tamsi who tells Jack, George’s best friend. Tears and trauma follow as Kathryn, who was in a relationship with George when she was younger, Tamsi and Monica all vie to take care of him. Much of a play’s enjoyment comes from getting to know and care for its characters. That’s my problem with “Life of Riley.” While Colin is wonderful at playing the doofus — the best character in the play — he can’t carry the weight of this story alone. Lines from Kathryn like, “He saves his patients only to kill them with his small talk,” make her one-dimensional and tiring. Jack’s role requires him to be a basket case over George, but it’s over the top and unrealistic for a man truly mourning. The many scenes with Jack and Tamsi

Henny russell (Kathryn), dana green (Tamsi), ray Chambers (Jack) and nisi Sturgis (Monica) star in ‘Life of riley’ through June 5 at The Old globe Theatre. courtesy screaming at each other are also draining. The creative team of Robert Morgan (scene and costume), Chris Rynne (lighting), Paul Peterson (sound), Jan Gist (dialect coach) and Elizabeth

Stephens (stage manager) comes through fine in this production, but their efforts did not enhance my enjoyment of the show. George Riley is only alluded to, he never appears in the play, and I think that’s a sig-

nificant reason it didn’t resonate with me. The characters never convince me he’s really a part of their lives, and their continual bickering, shouting and unresolved relationships left me constantly checking my watch.
