Shores Association continues its push for park ranger and beach improvements

Town Council to aid dilapidated police station in Pacific Beach

By Pat Sherman The La Jolla Shores Association (LJSA) is again requesting that city officials add a ranger on the beach and at Kellogg Park to monitor conditions that association members say have gotten out of control — from illegal parking and litter to loud ice cream truck music and overuse of the area by unlicensed commercial operators. Though the LJSA has been told that there is no funding for a park ranger, its board voted during a June 13 meeting to send a letter to District 1 City Councilwoman Sherri Lightner, as well as the city’s Park and Recreation and Lifeguard Services departments requesting they revisit the matter.

works for you.” Among the LJSA’s chief concerns are: people camping out overnight in tents; ice cream trucks blaring loud music; the proliferation of scuba and kayak companies; and cars lining up illegally along Camino del Oro in front of Kellogg Park to load and unload items. “In the old days police would cite people,” Williams said. “Now they’ve figured out there’s no police. … Emergency vehicles try to come down there and they can’t get through. That whole road will just clog up at the end of the day.” San Diego Police Officer Omar Sinclair, who attended the meeting,

By Pat Sherman La Jolla Town Council discussed the possibility of members donating money or time to help restore a shoddy police storefront in Pacific Beach that serves as a hub for officers patrolling La Jolla. “It is a shambles,” said town council trustee Nancy Gardner at the group’s June 14 meeting. “If the health department went in there, they’d probably condemn it.” Gardner said Lt. Brian Ahern of San Diego Police’s Northern Division told her the storefront needs new flooring, paint, protective glass and other repairs. Gardner recently visited the storefront with a contractor, who estimated that the work would cost about $10,000. Asked if the police department could

City closes recycling center that would fund shelter for La Jolla’s homeless By Pat Sherman recycling center that was opened earlier this year to raise money for a proposed shelter serving the homeless in La Jolla and Pacific Beach was forced to cease operations May 31, or face fines of $500 a day. The recycling center’s operator, Tresha Souza, says she is the victim of nebulous municipal codes, conflicting city evaluations and selective enforcement. Souza, who is also founder of the nonprofit organization, So Others May Eat, Inc., which serves free meals to the homeless at Mary, Star of the Sea Catholic Church in La Jolla, opened her recycling center more than three months ago, in the alley adjacent to CVS Pharmacy at 4445 Mission Blvd. in Pacific Beach. She hopes to use money from the business to fund a homeless shelter she intends to open on Mission Bay Drive in Pacific Beach. The shelter would serve the long-term and emergency needs of the homeless in local beach communities. Before opening, Souza obtained a business tax license and city approval for the recycling center, which was open 30 hours per week before closing. “I went to zoning three times,” she said. “They looked up all the codes and told me I’m good to go. This was in January. … I did my due diligence.” Souza also obtained written approval from the district manager of CVS Pharmacy, as well as CalRecycle, the state agency that oversees the collection and payment of California Redemption Value (CRV) funds, which are collected as fees paid on the purchase of recyclable beverage containers. CalRecycle reimburses recycling center operators such as Souza, as well as curbside recyclers who contract with the city of San Diego and other municipalities. On April 24 Souza said she received a phone call from Lisa Johnson, a land development investigator with the city’s code enforcement department, alerting her to the results of an investigation of her center that took place earlier that day, when Souza was not present.


Tresha Souza (center) speaks with some of the regular customers at her Pacific Beach recycling center last month. Pat Sherman A written report of the inspection dated May 7 states, in part, that Souza was operating “without a required permit contrary to permit conditions,” (code section 121.0302), and that “facilities that are not within a fully enclosed building shall be set back at least 10 feet from any building or public-right-ofway” (code section 141.0620). Souza said her center is more than 10 feet from the alley. Gary Geiler, an associate planer with the city’s development services department, agreed with Souza, telling her upon a later site visit that she in fact appeared to be compliant with the city’s municipal code. Speaking with the La Jolla Light, Bob Vacchi, deputy director of the city’s neighborhood code compliance division, was not certain if Souza required an additional permit for her center, as stated in the inspection. “Some recycling facilities require higherlevel permits, because they’re bigger operations,” he said. “In this case you could prob-

ably operate one without a special permit. “I don’t think that code section (121.0302) relates to a permit, specifically,” Vacchi added. “The biggest problem she has is that she doesn’t have the room where she is to meet the code requirement.” Joe LaCava, who sits on the boards of several La Jolla groups that advise the city on planning and land use issues, also serves on an exploratory committee working to help Souza open her homeless shelter. LaCava said small businesses routinely complain that city regulations are difficult to interpret and apply. “If someone can’t afford to hire an attorney, it can be confusing and too often the small businessperson is the one who suffers when (the city) says, ‘You read the regulation incorrectly,’ ” LaCava said. “I think that is really what is happening here. … I think the wording in the municipal code is open to interpretation, and that her business should be given the benefit of the doubt be-

cause she made a reasonable interpretation of the code.” Vacchi said the city inspected Souza’s operation after receiving complaints from three adjacent business owners, including two located on the alley near her space. The complaints had to do with alleged disturbances by homeless people patronizing Souza’s center. Souza noted that several other recycling centers in San Diego operate in a similar fashion as hers, but have not been inspected. “We operate on a complaint basis, so we would generally only go out and look at things if we get a complaint on them,” Vacchi said. Souza, who denied any disturbance by her customers, took issue with another section of her inspection, which notes her center’s “visual impact upon the community.” However, Souza said her center is largely removed from public view. “We are in an alley with a 12-foot privacy fence around us, behind IHOP, behind Taco Bell. People don’t even know we’re here,” she said. “Clearly, they’re talking about the homeless. “Around the corner you’ve got five bars. I’ve had to stop guys (leaving the bars) from peeing in the alley.” Souza said she also was asked to cease operations by CalRecycle, in response to a complaint from Dan Regan, owner of Regan Recycling. CalRecycle Senior Analyst Walt Simmons relayed the complaint to her, she said. Regan once ran a mobile recycling business in Pacific Beach, before selling it to an employee, whom he said eventually lost control of it due to poor business decisions and personal problems. Though Regan denied complaining to CalRecycle about Souza’s operation, he confirmed that he hoped to restart his mobile recycling program in Pacific Beach, including once-a-week operations at CVS Pharmacy. “The director of CVS said I was one day late and he’d just made an agreement with Tresha, and I said, ‘Darn, the timing,’”

Merchants Association seeks new office space

By Pat Sherman The La Jolla Village Merchants Association (LJVMA) is looking for a more prominent location in the Village, which it hopes to occupy when its lease at 7734 Herschel Ave. expires Jan. 1. Plans are for the new space to also house the La Jolla Visitor Information Center, which is operated by the San Diego Convention and Visitors Bureau (ConVis) and currently located at 7966 Herschel Ave., near Prospect Street. The LJVMA hopes the shared space will boost the visibility of the merchants association and visitors center, the latter of which needs additional room.

“We could stay where we are, but we want to take this opportunity,” said LJVMA President Phil Coller, noting some limitations of the current lease. “If anybody’s got ideas on new property we’d love to (hear about them).” Coller said the merchants association has applied for grants to assume management of the volunteer-run visitors center, while expanding aspects of its partnership with ConVis, which seeks to have a greater impact and presence in La Jolla.

Herringbone restaurant planted three magnolia trees in front of its space at 7837 Herschel Ave. recently, as part of a tree restoration project.

ships to businesses and organizations located outside its Business Improvement District (BID). Businesses located within the BID area are automatically granted membership via a city-mandated BID assessment. Associate memberships would be granted to businesses located within the confines of the La Jolla Community Plan map, which the city last updated in 2004. Associate members will receive the same benefits and voting rights as existing members, though they cannot sit as directors per LJVMA bylaws. The rate for associate memberships is $350 for business-

es with 1-10 employees, $600 for businesses with 11-40 employees, and up. The highest associate membership is $2,000 for businesses with 200 or more employees. The average annual rate for assessed members within the BID is about $350. Associate memberships will be granted on a case-bycase basis by the LJVMA board, Coller said, noting that the board could waive or reduce fees for nonprofit organizations. “The business improvement district leaves out some very important businesses that are outside of the membership area,” Coller said. “We want to give those businesses opportunities to

The next Haute Nights event will be 6-9 p.m. July 21. n Tree Trimming Troubles: Board member Egon Kafka reported three magnolia trees were recently planted in front of Herringbone restaurant, and three flowering Cassia trees were planted in front of Warwick’s Bookstore to replace several small palms. Throughout the Village there are some 250 trees in the public right of way. Though the city was once responsible for trimming the trees, it abandoned the task about six years ago due to budget cuts, said Erin Demorest, a representative for District 1 City Councilwoman Sherri Lightner. Kafka, who proposed that the LJVMA take on the responsibility for trimming the trees,

From Recycling, A3 recalled Regan, who once served as recycling manager for Sacramento County. In 1997, Regan met with Pacific Beach law enforcement, community leaders and business owners to draft Assembly Bill 1639. The legislation called for the establishment of his pilot mobile recycling program in Pacific Beach, which operated five days a week, at a different location each day. The program was designed to make recycling centers more palatable to the community by not encouraging the homeless to congregate in one specific area. Regan, who has been negotiating with Pacific Beach retailers to restart the mobile recycling program, said the alley behind CVS is “too tight” to sustain a recycling operation more than one day per week. “If Tresha was there I’d respect her and I would back off, but, see, if she’s going to be on Mission Boulevard at CVS, it’s a time bomb,” he said. “Even with careful, great management, it’s just too tight. I drove by a couple times and noticed all the loitering and the shopping carts. A permanent site at CVS is just not going to work … but it may work on a one-day a week basis.” The Light asked the city to inspect three recycling centers operating adjacent to retailers, in a similar manner as Souza’s — including two owned by Regan. An inspection of Regan’s Clairemont and Ocean Beach centers found the operations were both “too large and too close to the building,” Vacchi responded via e-mail. A case has been opened on both centers and the city is preparing a notice to request “vol-

said he obtained six bids, and called for the board to allocate $15,000 for the work. The money also would be used to purchase additional brackets and hanging planters in the Village, and to kill the root systems of diseased trees recently felled by the city. Though the city is not maintaining the trees, Demorest said the merchants association would need to obtain a city permit before it is allowed to take on the annual or semi-annual job. “If a tree limb falls and hits somebody on the head, who’s liable?” Coller asked, noting the liability of the LJVMA taking on the work. “It’s a city safety issue, so I don’t see how the city can gut it from its budget.” Cups owner Michelle Ciccarelli Lerach asked Demorest if the city could make the merchants association immune from liability should it assume the task, and requested

untary compliance,” the e-mail stated. A third center, Replanet Recycling on Genesse Avenue, was found to be “too large.” Regan said his permanent sites in Point Loma and Clairemont do not cater to the homeless. “All my sites cater to churches, schools and families,” he said. “The street people, if they don’t play by our rules, we do not serve them. That means no shopping carts and they must be sober when they come in.” But Souza said she requests the same respect and orderliness from her clients. During a May visit to Souza’s center, Doug Sovinsko of Pacific Beach Christian Church was there with a handyman named Glen to redeem $48 in recyclables. The church redeems recyclables donated by congregants to pay those who are “down on their luck” for odd jobs around the church. “Glen’s unemployed, but he’s kind of being employed through the recycling program,” Sovinsko said. “It’s really a win-win.” Though Vacchi said a recent reevaluation of Souza’s site now allows her existing

n Watering Bids Needed: The city notified LJVMA that it must put its contract for watering its planters — about $900 per month from July 1 to Dec. 31 — out to bid. A motion was made to seek five bids for the work. n Bench Prototype Coming: The association will also order a prototype bench as a

possible replacement for the 17 it owns and maintains in the Village. The bench under consideration is made of recycled plastic that resembles mahogany and has a 10-year warranty. n La Jolla Art and Wine Festival: Sherry Ahern and Andrea Dahlberg updated the LJVMA on the next La Jolla Art and Wine Festival, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Oct. 13-14 in the Village. The event, to include stilt walkers, jugglers and other roving circus performers, as well as flash mobs, is expected to draw as many as 20,000 people. “We want the merchants to shine with us, because we’re all family,” Ahern said. Though about 100 artists have rented space for the festival, another 100 are still being sought. Application forms are available at Tented booth rental fees range from $350 to $900.


How to Help n Tresha Souza is hoping for a resolution so she can reopen at CVS. She asks merchants who may have space for a recycling center (or anyone with expertise) to help her wade through the bureaucratic process. Contact her at (858) 414-8281 or

that Demorest arrange a meeting with city officials to address the issue. LJVMA board member Claudette Berwin suggested the association draft a letter to “exert some pressure” on the city. “They need to do what they’re supposed to be doing,” Berwin said. “This is totally unacceptable.” In the end, the group decided to wait to hear from city officials on the tree trimming, and instead allocated up to $1,500 for the hanging planters.

Physical Therapy vs. Lumbar Diskectomy Think that surgery is your only option for effective pain relief from a herniated disk? According to a 2006 study by the National Institute of Arthritis, Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases, it may not be. Although lumbar diskectomy is a common surgical procedure, its necessity in treating herniated disks has not been established. This study suggests that while surgery may be an effective route to relief for many people; longer term, non-operative therapies may offer benefits that are similar to, if not equal for patients who elect not to have surgery. Physical therapy (PT) is an effective, conservative treatment method to help avoid herniated disc surgery. A growing number of neurosurgical practices recommend that all patients try PT prior to scheduling this type of surgery. Ability Rehab specializes in treating back pain. Our therapists first perform a thorough evaluation of your muscle strength & flexibility, joint range of motion, posture, body mechanics, pain levels and much more. They will then develop a customized therapy program to reduce pain, protect the back and quite possibly help you to avoid surgery altogether. P.S. Every individual situation is different. Please discuss this option with your doctor to determine the best course of treatment for you.

San Diego Police officer Omar Sinclair discusses a burglary that occurred June 12 on Belvedere Street, in which the robbers made off with a Porsche convertible, Picasso lithograph and more than $25,000 in jewelry. From Shores, A1 said residents can call San Diego Police’s non-emergency line to report such activity. Though there are eight officers assigned to beach communities in SDPD’s Northern Division, their primary duty is to respond to complaints and previously identified problems, Sinclair said. “Unfortunately, that’s not parking,” Sinclair said. “We can’t tie up an officer for a parking-related issue.” LJSA member Mary Coakley agreed that ice cream truck operators at the Shores, which have increased from one or two last year to four this year, are a problem for residents and merchants. “Can you imagine listening to six hours of ‘It’s a Small World’?” she asked.

Resident Charlie Williams said cars are making illegal stops along this stretch of Camino del Oro near Kellogg Park to load and unload beach items and passengers.

Coakley said the operators also wheel pushcarts throughout the park, which is not permitted. “It’s a problem for the merchants who are paying huge rents and trying to keep their heads above water, watching all these sales going on around the corner,” she said. Amplified sound emanating from an ice cream truck must not be audible at a distance of 50 feet or greater. “That would be something we’d have to evaluate, trying to balance the spirit of the law and the letter of the law,” Sinclair said. With an average of more than 40,000 visitors every weekend from Memorial Day to the end of September, La Jolla Shores is one of San Diego’s busiest beaches. “If you went to Petco Park to watch a Padres game (with about) 25,000 people you would never not see a policeman, a parking person or city services that were there on a regular basis to manage the crowds,” Williams said. “We have 40,000 people who come here every weekend and we have no crowd control and very little police presence.” Lifeguard Lt. John Everhart said there are approximately 13 lifeguards stationed at La Jolla Shores on summer weekends, one of them being designated as an ambassador to monitor city-permitted kayak rental companies. “I don’t know that the situation is any more dire than in previous summers,” Everhart said, though adding that lifeguards would welcome a ranger assigned to La Jolla Shores. Though Everhart said lifeguards monitor the park for alcohol use, glass bottles, illegal tents, dog law infractions and other issues, their priority is activity in the water and west of the boardwalk.

Shores Association board members say they will pressure city officials in their ongoing quest for a ranger to oversee parking, permit violations and other issues on the beach and at Kellogg Park. photos by Pat Sherman “As we can, we focus on the things behind us,” he said. “I think city staff does a good job of keeping the balance and enforcing regulations. We work pretty closely with the police department. If we have egregious things happening — such as violence, theft or burglary — we will call the police.” n Residential Treatment Facilities Officer Sinclair also addressed the issue of two for-profit drug treatment facilities that have opened in University City, at 2821 Lange St. and 5497 Bloch St. The company, Practical Recovery, plans to open more, Sinclair said, possibly west of Interstate 5. “Residents are concerned, and rightly so,” he said. Sinclair said there has been a proliferation of such treatment houses opening in other residential coastal areas like Salinas, Newport Beach and Huntington Beach. Under the law, such facilities do not have to announce their arrival if they have less than seven residents. “The magic number is six, and they just open shop,” Sinclair said. “Apparently this for-profit company is hitting a lot of coastal cities, and this is one of them.” Sinclair suggested community members remain vigilant and report any suspected criminal or suspicious activity. A group of residents has organized a website to address the issue, n LJSA Vacancies: The La Jolla Shores Association also announced that it has four vacancies on its board of directors to fill.

Scripps oceanographer has evidence for 135 years of ocean warming By Claire Discenza Last week, Scripps physical oceanographer Dean Roemmich presented what he considers to be “very powerful evidence that, in fact, the warming of the oceans didn’t begin 50 years ago, but rather in a time scale of about 100 years ago.” Roemmich delivered this month’s Perspectives on Ocean Science lecture at the Birch Aquarium. In his talk, “135 years of global ocean warming between the Challenger Expedition and the Argo Program,” Roemmich explained why it is so important to look toward the seas for climate clues. “Measuring the temperature of the ocean is a very fundamental index for the climate system as a whole,” Roemmich said. This is because the oceans absorb a small, but constant, amount of the sun’s radiation — about 0.9 watts per square meter. Roemmich and others were able to calculate worldwide temperature change by comparing measurements taken aboard the 19th-century research vessel “Challenger” to those collected today. “The Challenger Expedition, it was a real epic voyage that kicked off the science of oceanography,” he said. Between 1872 and 1876, the British naval ship covered 69,000 miles and took deep-sea temperature measurements at 300 locations. Despite the enormity of the undertaking, the technologies available at the time were limited. The Challenger’s crew recorded temperatures by tying a thermometer to a rope, dropping it in the water, and waiting

for it to fully sink. However, because of water currents, the team had great difficulty keeping the rope completely vertical. As a result, scientists often inadvertently recorded from shallower waters than intended — an error that resulted in a small but persistent warm-bias in the data. After the Challenger, the next global sampling project didn’t happen until the 1990s. WOCE, the World Ocean Circulation Experiment, took advantage of the electronic Conductivity Temperature Depth recorder, or CTD. Unlike a thermometer on a rope, a

CTD can collect data continuously as it is lowered through the water. Using CTDs, WOCE was able to gather information from 8,000 profiles over seven years. As revolutionary as WOCE was, it is dwarfed by today’s sampling technologies. In the 1950s, scientists began designing floats that would sink to a pre-disposed depth, drift for a while, and then return to the surface. It was not long before researchers started attaching CTDs to take measurements over longer distances and time periods. “As soon as this float was designed, a

It’s a 30-nation collaborative program,” said Roemmich. “I think Argo has changed global oceanography.” Putting it all together, when researchers subtracted Challenger temperatures from Argo temperatures, they saw significant warming throughout the world’s oceans. “There’s around a 0.55-degree temperature difference between the Challenger and Argo, and that’s a lower bound in temperature difference,” Roemmich reported.

Scientists suspect infectious disease shaped human origins

Research Report By Lynne Friedmann


oughly 100,000 years ago, human evolution hit a bottleneck: Our ancestors had been reduced to perhaps 5,000-10,000 individuals living in Africa. In time, modern humans would emerge from this population eventually replacing all other evolutionary cousins, such as the Neanderthals. The cause of the bottleneck remains a mystery, with theories ranging from cultural developments like language to climate-altering events, among them a massive volcanic eruption. Add another possible factor: infectious disease. Using genome sequencing, an international team, led by scientists at the UC San Diego School of Medicine, discovered two inactive genes as part of a larger family of immune system genes believed to have been very active in human evolution. This suggests that when the genes in

question became inactive, it gave ancestors of modern humans an upper hand by eliminating a protein target favored by bacteria particularly lethal to newborns and infants. Such pinpoint mutations in a small, restricted population would have had an enormous positive effect on species survival allowing descendents to expand dramatically in both number and range. The findings appear in The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. News release at Mechanism key in drug allergy identified Adverse drug reactions cause harm, restrict treatment options for patients, and hamper new drug development. La Jolla Institute for Allergy & Immunology (LIAI) researchers report findings that could improve drug safety by identifying drugs at risk of potentially fatal hypersensitivity reactions before they are tested in humans. The study focused on HLA (human leukocyte antigen), a gene that helps the body’s immune system identify cells infected by viruses and bacteria. Individuals possess many different variations of HLA and many drug hypersensitivity reactions are HLA-linked. Unfortunately, HLA-linked hypersensitivity often

doesn’t surface during clinical trials, but only after a drug is approved and taken by thousands of people. The LIAI team found that certain drugs can alter which peptides (pieces of proteins) specific HLA molecules “show” to the immune system creating a case of mistaken identity in which these peptides, otherwise never be seen by the immune system, initiate drug hypersensitivity. The team has developed tests to identify drug compounds at risk of setting off such genetic-linked reactions. Findings appear in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. News release at Re-defining stroke risk among pre-diabetics Millions of pre-diabetic Americans may be at increased risk of stroke, but the precise degree of that threat is confounded by differing medical definitions. An international team that included UCSD School of Medicine researchers reviewed 15 studies that looked at the association between pre-diabetes and stroke risk. The studies, published between 2004 and 2011, involved 760,925 participants. Pre-diabetes occurs when blood glucose levels are consistently higher than normal, but not yet high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes.

People with pre-diabetes typically have the same risk factors for cardiovascular disease as people with type 2 diabetes – high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels, and obesity – but the condition’s effect on future stroke risk has not been established. Researchers found that an association between future stroke risks depended upon the definition of prediabetes as determined by a fasting glucose test. However, that clinical measure has been changed in the last 15 years. Therefore, applying the 1997 standard identified pre-diabetes in the studies as having a 21 percent chance of suffering a future stroke; applying a less stringent 2003 definition indicated no increased stroke risk. Additional research is needed to determine the best definition predicting stroke risk among diabetics that includes an assessment of more recent glycemic biomarkers, followed by clinical trials involving drugs and/ or lifestyle modification to evaluate the effect of treatments on reducing the risk of future strokes. The findings appear in the British Medical Journal. News release at — Lynne Friedmann is a science writer based in Solana Beach.

Spotlight on Local Businesses Dr. Alicia Kennedy, DDS, is a smile maker By Marti Gacioch Dr. Alicia Kennedy’s dental patients have a lot to smile about. Based on Girard since 1998, Kennedy operates a boutique dental practice specializing in high-end aesthetic dentistry. In her practice she uses only the latest technology and materials to enhance her work. Kennedy has done implants and porcelain veneers since 1987, but impression materials, and materials to make crowns, have changed greatly since the days of using gold crowns. “We now use E-Max or Empress material, which have the same translucency as real tooth enamel so Dr. Alicia they look like your own Kennedy natural tooth,” Kennedy said. “The new materials are very strong and emulate porcelain, so we can match the natural tooth and the crown so that you cannot distinguish the difference.” One of Dr. Kennedy’s patients in her 60s recently replaced her old opaque crowns with new translucent ones and was thrilled with the results. “She said it was the best investment she ever made,” Kennedy said. “She said ‘I can smile now and I get so many compliments for my teeth.’” Kennedy emphasizes precision in her

work, which involves using high-powered microscopes to make the smooth, detailed preparation needed to assure perfect connections. “When I put them in, they look perfect and they last much longer because there is no gap between the tooth and the crown,” Kennedy said. Kennedy grew up in Communist Poland and received her dentistry degree. In 1975, the Polish government allowed Kennedy and her husband to leave Poland to work in Libya where they remained for four years before coming to the United States. After receiving a second dentistry degree from UCLA in 1982, Kennedy practiced in Orange County until moving to La Jolla in 1998.

Officine Panerai brings Italian luxury timepieces to La Jolla Officine Panerai, the Italian high-end watchmaker, has again expanded its North American retail presence with a new, 925-square-foot boutique in La Jolla at 1135 Prospect Street. Located in the heart of The Village, across from the Pacific Ocean and the renowned La Valencia Hotel, this new boutique joins Panerai’s existing location in Beverly Hills to further serve Panerai’s loyal clients and customers in Southern California. Panerai boutiques showcase a classic Italian-style atmosphere, designed according to the company’s recently launched retail concept that was unveiled at Officine Panerai’s new boutique on the via Montenapoleone in Milan last year. The interior is made to enhance the store’s bright, transparent features and nautical accents. In honor of the historic association between Officine Panerai and the Italian Navy, the shapes and materials used recall the world of the sea: simple lines alternate with wave-like structures. All materials, many of which have been imported from Italy, have been carefully selected while taking inspiration from the Brand’s Florentine roots. Inside each boutique, a large wall clock features one of the more distinctive features of a Panerai timepiece: the “sandwich” structure of the legendary dial: two

Laughter Yoga is a funny way to spend Monday mornings By Brianna Alexander “Ha ha ha ha … ho ho ho … he he he he” are the first sounds you hear walking into the big room at the La Jolla Community Center for the 11 a.m. Monday session of Laughter Yoga. Leader Ndinda Spada explains the class as “a series of laughter exercises combined with yogic breathing.” As the class gets underway, all the smiles and giggles are somewhat forced, but Spada assures “the body cannot tell the difference between a fake laugh and a genuine one; both provide the same healthy benefits.” As the class progresses, the laughter becomes contagious and more natural due to the group dynamic. A bizarre use of one’s time? Spada says the good science behind laughing speaks for itself. There are many physical, mental, and emotional benefits gained when you laugh. According to the medical profession, laughter helps you to unwind from the negative affects of stress, and is also proven to boost your immune system. When you laugh, you naturally take in more oxygen, which is needed to fight disease, to reduce From Recycling, A7 20-foot storage container to fulfill a code requirement that her facility be “enclosed,” last week Souza was told by another city employee that she now needs a building permit and a signed letter from CVS’s corporate office, signifying their buy-in. CVS store manager Danette Alvarado said the retailer is having second thoughts about a recycling center operating at its store, even though CalRecycle requires that all CRV beverage retailers with annual sales of $2 million or more must have a center located within a mile of their site. Otherwise, they must institute an in-store redemption program or face penalties of $100 a day. “I’m thinking that, because of our neighbors next to us, corporate-wise we are just

The process of laughing also boosts the production of “happy” hormones, or endorphins. You literally leave the session of Laughter Yoga feeling more emotionally liberated, and your positive emotions are brought to the forefront, Spada insists. In addition, Laughter Yoga is a safe, gentle and fun exercise that is accessible to anyone — regardless of age. Dr. Madan Kataria, a physician from Mumbai, India, started his first Laughter Yoga club in 1995 with only a few people. Today, Laughter Yoga is a worldwide phenomenon with more than 6,000 clubs in about 60 countries.

It’s time to take down the illegal, ugly signs By Susan DeMaggio Editor friend meeting me for lunch in La Jolla a couple of Sundays ago arrived at the restaurant obviously agitated. He slipped into the booth and threw back his head and groaned, “Ergh, I feel like I’ve just been attacked by everybody’s agendas!” “What do you mean by that?” I asked. “Signs. Signs. They’re everywhere in this town. Signs for open houses. Signs for pizza slices. Signs for flowers and manicures and massages. Signs for car washes. Political signs. Signs for SALES. SALES. SALES. In other words, visual pollution, the contamination of the environment from human activities.” “Oh that,” I laughed, handing him the wine list. “Welcome to a tough economy where everyone is just trying to survive.” But he wouldn’t be soothed. “It’s not right. It’s not legal. It’s ugly and it’s disturbing because it’s clutter. Visiting La Jolla used to be a pleasurable and picturesque experience …” On my drive home, I had to admit my friend had a point. Sure, there are more important things to fret about than street-sign clutter, but there is indeed an insidious and invasive


Our View increase of such in almost every neighborhood in La Jolla (2012 elections notwithstanding). The Light has broached this subject in editorials before. Perhaps it’s time to remind residents and businesses of the sign laws and violation consequences. According to the San Diego Municipal Code, peruse the 40-plus pages of sign regulations at it is unlawful to do the following: 1) Place, post, paint or secure any sign, pennant, flag, banner, balloon, or similar attention-seeking device on public property or within the public right-of-way unless otherwise provided in the Municipal Code or specific state statute; 2) Place any lettering, card, poster, or notice of any kind on any curb, sidewalk, street, pole, post, utility box, hydrant, bridge, tree, building, or other surface that is located on public property or in the public right-of-way unless otherwise provided in the Municipal Code or specific state statute; 3) Display any sign without the required Sign Permit Sticker; or

4) Erect any sign on any premises contrary to the provisions of this division. Violations of any provisions of this division shall be subject to the enforcement provisions of Chapter 12, Article 1. Violations of this division shall be treated as strict liability offenses regardless of intent. (Effective Dec. 12, 2001.) The Dunn Foundation, which concerns itself with the quality of the visual environment on a national basis, reports on its website that “visual pollution results in the homogenization of our communities and our loss of sense of place.” The foundation goes on to recommend that “A community’s appearance should express uniqueness while reflecting its history, present vitality and future potential. It should be coherent and vibrant, not cluttered with visual pollution.” It’s been suggested, that if enough La Jollans stop by to complain to a business tainting the town with an illegal sign, those ugly, intrusive placards will come down quietly and without the need for official reports. Maybe sending the offenders a copy of this column will work, too. I sure hope so.

Our Readers Write

Students rally to save history teacher I will be a senior this fall at La Jolla High School. Knowing that our classroom sizes will be in the 40s depresses me. Out of all the teachers being laid off at La Jolla High, one is being fought for. His name is Jerry Tellers and he deserves to stay at La Jolla High. He is one of the best history teachers at the school and he brings joy to everyone in his class. If the La Jolla Light could give publicity to our struggle to save our teacher we might succeed in fighting the San Diego Unified School District from taking our teachers. It wouldn’t be a large victory, but if we saved Mr. Tellers, it would still be a victory. If you need more info, send a message to the leader of the movement: Giovanni Moujaes at Thank you. The students of La Jolla High School would greatly appreciate it. Chris Pomerenke

It’s a shame, amazing science teacher laid off As a follow up to the story I wrote last week about La Jolla High School students raising sea bass for release into Mission Bay, the teacher responsible for bringing the sea bass project to La Jolla High, Dave James, has received a pink slip. In the past, I’ve written about some of the other above-and-

beyond activities he’s helped get the students involved in — like internships at Scripps and San Diego State; and participating in the ocean census and the National Ocean Sciences Bowl competition. James is a marine biologist with a master’s degree, and while the San Diego Unified School District says it wants people with experience in the sciences, it’s unwilling to put its money where its mouth is. If you have any interest in profiling teachers who have been laid off and the impacts their departures will make, James might be an excellent candidate. Greg Alder

Easter Cross update I was reading your article at http://www. when I noticed this statement: “The land underneath the cross — part of a memorial originally dedicated in 1954 to those killed in the Korean War — has been under federal control since 2006.” All information I have culled over the years indicates the Easter Cross was dedicated to “our Lord and Savior” in 1954 and was NEVER referred to as a War Memorial until sometime after 1989 when the lawsuit was filed by Mr. Paulson. It is my understanding this fact was acknowledged in at least one court ruling. I know the “procross” advocates make these absurd claims, but we should make the truth known to the public so they can make an informed decision. If you have contradictory evidence, please let me know where I can find it. Andy Mansker

Harry’s Coffee Shop: Thanks for the memories I recently visited the coffee shop on Girard Street in La Jolla called Harry’s. I sat down to enjoy a nice quiet breakfast. For some reason that morning I decided on the Fluffy Bacon Pancakes instead of my usual Eggs Benedict with Holladay (Hollandaise) Sauce. My server that morning was a wonderful gal by the name of Pranumi. She took my order and brought me my pancakes right away. Well, let me tell you, it was a piece of heaven and a memory so dear to my heart that I just had to share this story with her and now with you. When I was a young girl, my father use to make us girls bacon pancakes in the morning. Each bite of those pancakes had that wonderful crispy, salty and sweet taste that you never forget. I finished the pancakes at Harry’s with a smile that morning and said a special thank you to Pranumi and Harry’s for allowing that special memory back into my heart. My father may be gone now, but his memories are with me always. Thank you Harry’s for making such wonderful pancakes! Georgia Hornback La Jolla

Children’s Pool was intended for public use I have been following the Children’s Pool situation for a few years now. While I won’t claim to know enough detail about the pros and cons of opening the sluiceways, after hearing that they have never been used, I

can’t help but wonder if this is another example of how the original plan was not upheld by the city or whoever was placed as the authority figure over this beach. One thing is clear (and I am sometimes confused by the angle taken by both the La Jolla Light and other media sources) is that the trust and the law state very clearly that this beach is to be maintained for human use and fishing. Has the La Jolla Light done any investigation into these documents themselves? Or do you typically print what community fringe groups claim to be fact? I am often shocked that the city has outwardly refused to maintain this beach due to the political nature of the activists who frequent the area, and yet the media never shows this side. Usually the media takes the side of, and I quote, “the seals.” Only problem is, the seals don’t speak; the self-proclaimed “seal protectors” do. Fact: Harbor seals are not endangered. They are also found at many other places along our coastline. The next closest colony resides in Point Loma. Those seals aren’t included in any of this debate because they aren’t smack dab in the middle of a community that wants to watch them, like it’s our own free zoo. It’s awfully frustrating to see how the political process has been jammed up, so many taxpayer dollars wasted, and at the end of the day, what should be an amazing city attraction is reduced to opposing sides trying to enforce what they believe is right. Meanwhile, the real authorities, who are assigned to this area, do nothing except try to figure out how to avoid being sued by each group. Sad. Thank you for your time. Ryan Sweeney


Virginia “Gina” Wright 1923 – 2012

Gina Wright died on June 9, 2012, at her home in La Jolla, California, with her daughter, Emma Wright, by her side. Born in a small village near Oxford, England, on January 2, 1923, Gina grew up the daughter of actors Gwendolyn and Leslie Banks, her father having been awarded the Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (CBE) for his body of work in the theatre and in film. Gina is survived by her

sister, Evangeline; her children, Emma Wright and Matthew Wright, their spouses, Tammy Brokaw and Myan Hansen, and their children, Teagan and Grant Brokaw and Lindsey Wright. Still just a teen during World War II, Gina volunteered to serve in the Women’s Land Army and was posted at Blenheim Palace, where she aided in growing food in order to help with the war effort. During that period, she learned a great deal about botany and developed a lifelong passion for gardening. After the war, she worked as a decorator in London until her marriage to Andrew Wright, an American academic, a professor at UCSD, and one of the founders of the UCSD Literature Department. The Wrights lived in La Jolla since 1963. A delightful writer and raconteur, Gina was the Garden Editor for Decor & Style Magazine for over a decade. A Tea will be held at 3:00 on the afternoon of June 30, 2012, at their home in

La Jolla to rejoice over and honor her graciously lived life. Should friends desire, memorial contributions may be sent to Planned Parenthood of San Diego or San Diego Hospice. Please sign the guest book online at obituaries/lajollalight.

Mary Nell Chases Lewis 1919 – 2012

Those of us who were lucky enough to know her, realize how fortunate we were to have Mary in our lives. Her love was unconditional. She was

kind, elegant, beautiful and gracious, she was a true lady. Mary passed away June 3, 2012. She was born October 22, 1919, in Alabama. Mary was married to Alex M. Chases for 20 years. When Alex passed away, she became Mrs. Norman Lewis for another 20 years. Mary had two sons, Alex Jr. and Ronald; four grandchildren, Alex Butler, Brenen, Jason and Larkin; and four greatgrandchildren, Stella, Olivia, Ava and Anabelle. Mary was a co-founder and President of the La Jolla Debutante Ball Committee, President of La Jolla Women’s Club and President of the Las Socias Nuevas charitable organization. She was honored by her peers and treated everyone with dignity and respect. The goodness that was instinctive in her will last forever. We love you Mary Nell, your laughter was like music.

‘LT’ retires as a San Diego Charger Flanked by his family and President Dean Spanos, the Chargers all-time leading rusher flashed his trademark grin as he re-signed with the team and then immediately retired. “Today is a special day, and that is because it is not often a player comes along that defines your team, and the NFL for that matter, for the better part of a decade, than LaDainian Tomlinson,” Spanos said as he began the press conference. “He was the very heart and soul of this organization during one of its most successful decades.  His accomplishments on and off the field were amazing.” After a two-year stint with the New York Jets, Tomlinson saw it fit to return to San Diego and announce his retirement.  LaDainian For nine seasons he was the face of the Tomlinson franchise, embodying everything that is great about this city. “I always felt like I was a Charger,” he said. “The guys, my teammates, the bond we built and the battles (we fought) together were special. I always felt in my heart that I was a Charger, so thanks to the Chargers organization and Dean Spanos and his family.” Tomlinson ends his NFL career ranked fifth all-time in rushing yards and third in touchdowns.

By Tom Murphy La Jolla Youth Baseball he PONY Section All-Star Tournament begins this week and La Jolla Youth Baseball has 11 teams entered and playing all over San Diego County. This tournament is often referred to as the Fourth of July Tourney with the section pairings squaring off as early as today and playing through July 4. From there, teams advance to Regional, Super Region, Zone and eventually the PONY World Series. This year LJYB will host the Pony, Pony-13 and Bronco-11 tournaments at our Cliffridge Park fields, which is great for the league and the La Jolla teams in particular who get to play at home. Roy Agbulos is managing the Pony All-Stars and they play their first game next Wednesday, June 27 at 4:30 p.m. between the winner of the Paradise Hill and Tecolote. The Pony-13 team, managed by John McColl, drew a bye in the first round and plays the winner of Tecolote and Vista Friday at 4:30 p.m. All PONY tournaments are double-elimination. Kris Smolinski is coaching the Bronco-11 team and they play Thursday at 4:30 p.m. against Tecolote at Cliffridge Park. Hopefully the home field advantage provides an edge in this longstanding rivalry. A number of players on this team are also entered in a travel

Course of the Force set to run through La Jolla In less than a month, don’t be surprised if you see a slew of wannabe Jedis running through La Jolla. Course of the Force will make its debut on July 7 and will pass through La Jolla heading south on Torrey Pines Road on Tuesday, July 10. Lucasfilm Ltd., Nerdist Industries, Octagon and Machinima have teamed up to present Course of the Force, an Olympicstyle lightsaber relay, where participants will make the journey from Santa Monica to San Diego while benefiting the Make-A-Wish Foundation. At quarter-mile markers (much less than 12 parsecs), participants will hand off the official Course of the Force lightsaber to the next runner as he or she begins their leg of the journey.

From LJYB, A21 Blue. Most of this squad are also on the Flash BBC travel team and play very well together. Wayne Young took over the Mustang Blue team and they face Chula Vista South on Saturday at 1 p.m. in Ramona. They have added some talent to the roster that should help them when they face some tough Red teams. Geoff Longenecker is coaching the Mustang-9s who play North City at Hickman Field in their opening game on Saturday at 2:30 p.m.. This matchup has become a bona fide rivalry and hopefully the PONY officials will pay more attention to the details this year. Pinto also formed three teams for the PONY tournament and the Pinto Red team is coached by Jim Duffy. This team was a finalist in the Memorial Day tourney and they drew Mira Mesa A in the first round on Saturday at noon in Ramona. Greg MacLean stepped in to manager the Pinto Blue team and they drew a bye into the second round and play the winner of La Jolla Red and Mira Mesa A. It’s unfortunate that two LJYB teams may have to play each other, but it beats the scenario of the Red team losing their opening game and dropping into the losers’ bracket. The Pinto-7 team consists of many of the players who went to the Shetland World Series last summer, so these boys are grizzled vets when it comes to tournament play. Hopefully Manager Michael Solis will continue his post-season run with this crew when they open the tournament at 11 a.m. on Sunday against the winner of Fallbrook and La Costa North in San Marcos. La Jolla seems to be a breeding ground for Shetland talent and this year is no exception with LJYB teams placing 1-2-3 in the recent Memorial Day Tournament. Coaches Walter Birnbaum and Greg Hansen have folded three solid teams into a single Shetland All-Star team and they may have the best chance of advancing the furthest of all La Jolla teams.

LJYB’s two Shetland teams (Red & White) celebrate after playing each other in the championship game of the Memorial Day Tournament (Red won). Fun Fact: LJYB’s Carson Greene may qualify for the Guinness Book of World Records. According to the June 4 application filed by Bronco Managers Mike Wintringer and Brian Moses, in a game between On The Inside Design and Mission Imprintables on May 11th, Greene made three successive outs, against three different batters, while playing three different positions — in the same inning. The mathematical odds of this happening are astounding! A search of the venerable Baseball Almanac and the Guinness Book of World Records prove inconclusive that such a feat has been previously recorded. LJYB eagerly awaits their reply.

With his time and efforts Glen Rasmussen strives to make La Jolla better Glen McFadden Rasmussen was born in San Diego, but grew up in Irvine. He graduated from Tustin Union High School, then attended San Diego State College, 1966-1971. He started WindanSea Natural Grocery on the corner of Nautilus and La Jolla Blvd. in 1973, sold it in 1980, and entered law school at California Western School of Law, 1981-1984. Glen and his wife, Marilyn, bought their Glen Rasmussen home in La Jolla in 1979. They have two adult children. Glen specializes in civil litigation, property-related matters, and professional liability defense. He has committed much time to the betterment of La Jolla as past Kiwanis Club of La Jolla president, past La Jolla Bar Association president, past La Jolla Town Council president, past Gillispie School Board of Trustees member and past La Jolla Community Planning Association Board of Trustees member. He now serves on the Planned District Ordinance Committee and is chairman of the board of the La Jolla Community Center.

What brought you to La Jolla? When I came to San Diego State in the mid1960s, the surf here. Then I returned in 1973 and opened the WindanSea Natural Grocery on the corner of Nautilus and La Jolla Blvd, which my wife and I sold to the Barbat family (who still own the Liquor Box across the street) in 1980. We have lived here since. After practicing law in a big firm in downtown San Diego, I have enjoyed a solo law practice here for more than 10 years. What might you add, subtract or improve in the area? I would continue the traffic calming for better pedestrian access across La Jolla Boulevard — like in Bird Rock (with incorporation of some lessons we’ve learned there) — for the commercial area from Palomar Avenue to Westbourne Street, then resuming at Marine Street up Pearl Street. I would implement the Torrey Pines Improvement Project for the same reasons. Having a “freeway” through town, while necessary to get in and out,

Research spanning 100 years shows that students score lower on standardized tests at the end of summer vacation than they do on the same tests at the beginning of the summer (White, 1906; Heyns, 1978; Entwisle & Alexander 1992; Cooper, 1996; Downey et al, 2004).

PHOTOS BY Craig Schwartz running into Jim in Pakistan. While Dmitri’s self-referencing, “Russian” humor produces laughs, his unwarranted knowledge about Jim and Jim’s past prove that danger inherently lurks everywhere in this play. More formidable and unknowable yet is Abdullah Khan (Demosthenes Chrysan), the Pashtun leader of an Afghan resistance group. Abdullah professes to keep some secrets strictly between himself and God, regardless of the close relationship he forms with Jim over several years’ work together. In spite of the dire political situations happening in the

play as airstrikes boom in the distance, the show is also funny — darkly so. Recurrent reminders of the lives the characters lead outside of the war zone humanize them and soften the militaristic focus of the play. Wives and daughters, not present onstage but often spoken of, are symbols for everything the men strive to protect. Consequently, the play both is and isn’t about politics; it chooses instead to foreground more personal themes about trust, friendship, sacrifice, and loyalty. “Blood and Gifts” is not a show for readily wandering minds. The action of the

play happens in snappy dialogue. Snooze for a moment and you’ll miss a major plot point. Most won’t have a problem staying engaged in this suspenseful show, though. Director Lucie Tiberghien, who worked on several readings of the piece during its development, has sculpted a fluid, smooth theatrical experience that appeals to the eyes as well as the intellect. Occasionally stunning visual stage pictures remind us that we are watching an expertly crafted production. That the set is an evocative, functional piece of the production without overwhelm-

ing the concentrated space of the intimate Mandell Weiss Forum Theatre is a testament to designer Kris Stone’s talent. The handy “Know Before You Go” guide on La Jolla Playhouse’s website is particularly useful for “Blood and Gifts,” as it provides the historical background for the piece. The play is a masterfully woven story, brought to life in this clean, crisp production. Already produced at the National Theatre in London and Lincoln Center Theatre in New York, you’ll want to catch the West Coast premiere of “Blood and Gifts” while it’s still here.

La Jolla Shores to get more beach wheelchairs Three new beach wheelchairs have been added to the shorelline — just in time for the busy summer months. The chairs, which have oversized wheels to make it easier to travel over sand, are available for free at lifeguard towers in La Jolla Shores, Mission Beach, Ocean Beach and Pacific Beach. Users may need to leave a driver’s license or photo ID. Amelia Opean, a paraplegic since a devastating car accident when she was 15 years old, started the push for the new wheelchairs. An avid ocean swimmer, Opean was having a hard time reaching the water because the beach wheelchair at La Jolla Shores was out of commission. “Without the chair, my swim group had to recruit help on the beach to get me to the water or to ask the lifeguards, who, on occasion, drove me down to the shoreline,” Opean said. Never one to be deterred, Opean started a fundraising drive to repair the wheelchair and the La Jolla Shores Surfing Association matched the money she raised. To ensure there is always a wheelchair at the beach, Councilmember Sherri Lightner partnered with Council President Pro Tem Kevin Faulconer and Councilmember Todd Gloria to donate funds out of their office budgets to purchase three additional chairs.

Rev. Raymond G. “Jerry” O’Donnell, Pastor We believe that All Hallows is much more than simply a place to worship once a week. It is also a center for learning, teaching, sharing faith experiences, and for giving and receiving that strength that we all need for our life-long journey with God. We are those servants mentioned by Jesus (Matthew 25:14-30). Each of us have been richly gifted, but these gifts must be invested wisely and generously to help others, according to the principles of good Christian Stewardship.

Comedy legend Rich Little performs Saturday, June 30 at JCC’s Garfield Theatre.


The man of 200 (or more) voices heads to La Jolla By David L. Coddon Expect Rich Little to be paying close attention to the presidential debates this fall. Not because he’s trying to decide whom to vote for in November. The truth is, he wants to get his “Mitt Romney” down. “It’s not going to be easy, because he looks like the typical all-American guy,” said Little of the GOP candidate. “He looks like ‘Leave it to Beaver’s’ father. I’m hoping that the debates will change things. Maybe he’ll get angry or we’ll hear something different, because he isn’t terribly exciting.” Little, the most famous impressionist in show-biz history, isn’t excited about Democratic incumbent Barack Obama’s voice either. “I think Ron Paul would have been better for me,” he confided, then immediately impersonated the Texas politician. “He’s a whiner,” Little whined, spot on. Little, who’s been doing impressions of and jokes about Hollywood and Washington’s biggest luminaries for 50 years, will perform Saturday, June 30, at the David and Dorothea Garfield Theatre as part of the San Diego Center for Jewish Culture’s “Look & Listen Performing Arts Series.” He’ll be alone on stage, but it won’t feel like it. The comedian’s repertoire includes more than 200 impressions, voices that he’s been doing on television, in concert and on nightclub stages since he was a young performer in his native Canada. His TV resume alone includes appearances on “Ed Sullivan,” “Laugh-In,” “The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson” and even Judy Garland’s CBS variety show. He’s performed countless times in Las Vegas (it’s also been his home on and off for 40 years), and it’s there, at the Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, that he’s honing his oneman play, “Jimmy Stewart & Friends,” for an anticipated Broadway run. “I was a personal friend of Jimmy’s, I spent a lot of time with him,” Little said by phone from Vegas. “We used to socialize a lot and did a lot of shows together, and I had a pretty good knowledge of his life. I thought that if I was going to do a show that involved a lot of other impressions he would be one of the best to do because he worked with so many people that I do.” That list includes presidents Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon, Cary Grant, John Wayne and Henry Fonda. Little has

If you go ■ What: Rich Little ‘in concert’ ■ When: 8 p.m. Saturday, June 30 ■ Where: Garfield Theatre, Jewish Community Center, 4126 Executive Drive, La Jolla ■ Tickets: $35-$42 ■ Box Office: (858) 362-1348 ■ Web: also worked a few more contemporary voices into the show: Dr. Phil, Andy Rooney, Clint Eastwood and Jack Nicholson. He does 28 impressions in each performance of the play. Little acknowledges that most of his impressions are of celebrities from an era foreign to younger audiences. “You don’t see many people doing Don Rickles and Robert Stack and Walter Matthau,” he said. “If you’re going to be an impersonator today, are you going to do your act and do Brad Pitt and George Clooney and Matt Damon? Is that going to work? Even if you did them well? I don’t know.” But Little says young people enjoy his shows. “I find that the young people who do come and are laughing and enjoying the show always say to me ‘I have no idea who you are impersonating, but I like the jokes.” Among his favorite voices, besides Stewart, are Ronald Reagan, and the man who was known as the “King of Late Night.” “It’s amazing how many people still remember ‘Carnac the Magnificent.’ I even say to the audience, do you miss Johnny Carson, and they all yell out yes.” Voice impressionists are a rare breed these days, but Little, 73, has some advice for aspiring impersonators: Choose people you admire and watch them all the time. “You get to know their mannerisms, their quirks. It helps if you’re a fan. You tend to gravitate to people you like. When I was a kid, I did John Wayne and Jimmy Stewart, Jack Benny and George Burns.” When asked if he ever thinks about retiring from show business, Rich Little morphed into George Burns: “You’ve got to have a reason to get out of bed in the morning, or you’ve got to have a reason to get into bed. At my age, they’re one and the same.” Good night, Gracie.

Formerly located in what is now The Green Flash, World Famous has been on the south end of Pacific Beach — near the Mission Beach border — since 1993, and was taken over by owner Dieter May in 1994, according to general manager Kendall Blevens. Its casual coastal cuisine and unobstructed views of the Pacific draw everyone from college students to families to San Diego Chargers fans, who watch games on one of four TVs during the football season. Naturally, the eatery incorporates beachthemed decor, which includes a surfboard hanging in the cocktail bar/lounge, old World Famous menus printed on wooden fish along the walls, and surfing and fishing photos throughout the establishment. In


one picture, it appears that several women are holding a very large fish, which is actually a broomstick, Chef Chris Bates said with a chuckle. As might be expected of an oceanside restaurant, many of World Famous’ entrees consist of seafood, but there are also handcut steaks, salads and a number of other options. And guests may be surprised to find that the majority of items are under $20, and everything falls below $30. Patrons can sit on the patio and watch the waves crashing and people strolling along the walkway while consuming a fresh fish dish such as Potato-Wrapped Halibut, served with a sun-dried tomato basil champagne sauce, rock shrimp arborio cake and steamed asparagus. They may also sample a variety of oceanbased fare such as the San Francisco-Style Cioppino, a Sicilian-style fisherman stew with Maine lobster, fresh fish, jumbo shrimp, scallops, mussels and clams in a herb lobster broth. For a tender meat dish, they gravitate toward the Slow-Roasted Prime Rib, which is cooked overnight and served in half- and full-cut portions. It’s served with garlic chive

On The Menu


Each week you’ll find a recipe from the featured restaurant online at Just click ‘Get The Recipe’ at the bottom of the story. ■ T his Week: World Famous’ Nut Crusted Brie whipped butter potatoes, sweet red peppers, au jus and creamy horseradish sauce. For the health-conscious crowd, the Kona Coast Shrimp Salad features grilled jumbo prawns over romaine tossed in a miso blood orange vinaigrette with wonton skins, mild peppers, thinly sliced Bermuda onions and dried cranberries. The family-friendly World Famous provides a special children’s menu with choices for the three main meals. Breakfast items are all served with a choice of bacon or sausage; among the lunch and dinner alternatives are the Little Surfer Burger,

Crispy Chicken Fingers, Popcorn Shrimp, and X-Treme Mac and Cheese with a creamy housemade cheese sauce over penne pasta. Monday through Thursday nights are very popular at the eatery — especially with the college-age crowd —with different bar promotions each of those days. They include half-price appetizers, and specials on shrimp, lobster and pollo asada tacos and Hawaiian ribs. As World Famous transitions for its dinner rush, it provides a “cafe” menu with items like burgers and appetizers from 3 to 5 p.m. daily. Around 5 p.m. weekdays tends to be the quietest time at the establishment, Bates said. “You can have a real nice seat” and can still hang around for the sunset, he said. “The restaurant almost stops as the sun goes down … it’s kind of like a calming time of day,” Bates added. Reservations are recommended on weekends and even during summer days, since the wait can sometimes be as long as one to two hours. “It’s packed all day during the summer,” Bates said. Maybe because it’s “World Famous.”

Eric Pitrofsky earns Brent Woodall Memorial Award Family of La Jolla High graduate killed in 9/11 attacks presents scholarship in his memory By Amelia Hollow When he was a freshman, La Jolla High’s Eric Pitrofsky said he set his sights on winning the Brent Woodall Memorial Award. “When I heard about what he’d done at and beyond the school, I decided to try and model myself after him,“ Eric said of the 1988 La Jolla High School grad who lost his life in the 9/11 terrorist attacks in New York City. Four years and three varsity letters later, Eric realized that goal and he joins the impressive list of recipients since the award’s founding by Brent’s family in 2002. “It’s such an honor to be mentioned on the same list as all these people who have gone on to do such great things, starting out with Brent Woodall,” Eric said.


Eric Pitrofsky (second from left) poses with his mother, Vera Pitrofsky (far right), and Brent Woodall’s parents after receiving the memorial award. COURTESY Brent played baseball, basketball, and football while maintaining a 3.9 GPA at La Jolla High. He went on to the University of California at Berkeley where he played football and baseball before graduating in 1993, and being drafted by the Chicago Cubs.

In 1995, Brent moved to New York to work in finance in the World Trade Center. He married his wife, Tracey, in 2000. His daughter, Pierce Ashley, was born in 2002, just months after Brent was killed. Eric said he kept Brent in mind every step of the way on his high

school journey. When deciding whether or not to play football as a senior, he thought about Brent balancing three sports with school, and decided to push himself to see what Brent went through. He knew about the Brent Woodall Foundation for Exceptional Children, founded by

Brent’s wife Tracey, so he volunteered with Las Patronas whenever he had time. “[The Woodall family] has turned such a sad and tragic event into a positive thing for the kids,” said Eric’s mother, Vera. Each year coaches nominate athletes who demonstrate academic excellence, citizenship and athleticism. Eric was one of three students selected to write an essay about what it would mean to win Brent’s award. The Woodall family read the essays before selecting Eric as this year’s recipient. Eric said he only found out the award included $1,500 in scholarship money after receiving it. Eric graduated with a 4.0 GPA. In the fall he will be heading to the University of Colorado at Boulder where he will play club baseball and study business. His name will now be listed on the Brent Woodall plaque that he so often admired as he entered school. Eric said he looks forward to being a role model for future La Jolla High School students in the same way that Brent Woodall and past award recipients motivated him to achieve his best.

Lobster tales and other fish stories for National Seafood Month

Kitchen Shrink By Catharine L. Kaufman


or devoted pescavores, here’s a primer on getting the best and most out of this delightful treasure of the sea. Bottom-feeders Can you believe, lobster was once a poor man’s food and even used as bait for fish when it was good and plenty in the frontier days of Davy Crockett? A cousin of mine grew up in a small maritime fishing town in Nova Scotia that boasts the world’s largest lobster on record — a heavyweight toppling the scales at 44 pounds. Since it takes 5-7 years for a lobster to reach one pound (typical market size) you do the math on this Methuselah of

crustaceans. There are boy and girl lobsters. In lobstermen vernacular, the male is called a “cock,” the female a “hen,” the latter distinguished by a wider dorsal tail region to accommodate premature eggs or roe that give bisque an intense lobster flavor. So if you enjoy a meatier tail, go for the girl. Death by boiling Lobsters are not the sharpest creatures in the sea, their miniscule brains resemble a grasshopper’s tangled mass of ganglia, supporting lobstermen’s claims that the creatures experience little pain when boiled alive. To appease lobster-advocates, the recommended method is to immerse the crustaceans into ice water to anesthetize them prior to boiling. To prepare a sweet and tender lobster, bring water to a rolling boil. Add the lobster (numbed in ice water, if you wish). Cover and bring to another boil. Simmer, letting it poach for about 5 minutes for a one-and-a-

UNLESS YOU TAKE ACTION TO PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY, IT MAY BE SOLD AT A PUBLIC SALE. IF YOU NEED AN EXPLANATION OF THE NATURE OF THE PROCEEDING AGAINST YOU, YOU SHOULD CONTACT A LAWYER. A public auction sale to the highest bidder for cash, cashier’s check drawn on a state or national bank, check drawn by a state or federal credit union, or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, or savings association, or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the Financial Code and authorized to do business in this state will be held by the duly appointed trustee as shown below, of all right, title, and interest conveyed to and now held by the trustee in the hereinafter described property under and pursuant to a Deed of Trust described below.

If no street address or other common designation is shown, directions to the location of the property may be obtained by sending a written request to the beneficiary within 10 days of the date of first publication of this Notice of Sale. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call

866-210-6524 or visit this Internet Web site sales using the file number 12-01054 assigned to this case. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. Date: 5/29/2012 Stewart Default Services Linda C.

a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 800-280-2832 for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit this Internet Web site for information regarding the sale of this property,

using the file number assigned to this case 20120169801060. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. FOR TRUSTEE SALE INFORMATION PLEASE CALL: AUCTION.COM, LLC ONE MAUCHLY IRVINE, CA 92618 800-280-2832 NDEx West, L.L.C.

crossword From 10 Questions, B1 business is not well served by fast traffic and frequent stops, nor does it allow safe access to our No. 1 asset, our beaches. Remember how Bird Rock was? It was a desert for our businesses. Slower traffic that doesn’t stop would make things so much better in our little beach community. Who or what inspires you? People who can accept good suggestions to help make the best judgment they can and who don’t resort to negativity to accomplish their goals; people who employ rational persuasion and hard work for the right goals. What is your mostmarked characteristic? I am told I have good judgment about a variety of matters, which I think comes from being raised on a farm in Southern California by a wonderful family. If you hosted a dinner party for eight, whom (living or deceased) would you invite?

LA JOLLA LIGHT - june 21, 2012 - Page B21

On my guest list of eight would be Jesus Christ, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, John F. Kennedy, Frederick Chopin, Albert Einstein, Jose Limon, Twyla Tharp and Marilyn Rasmussen. I’d add two more chairs for our kids. What is your mostprized possession? My house. What do you do for fun? I putter, go out to dinner with my wife, sing in a choir, play piano and guitar, watch my daughter dance beautifully, watch good movies with my son, ocean swim and hike. What is your philosophy of life? Don’t do anything you know is wrong. What would be your dream vacation? To go crash in the woods for about six months. What historical figure do you most identify with? Leonardo Da Vinci, not because I am anything like him, but because he was able to profoundly combine art and science.

Five fun activities for a day at the beach with kids FROM 10 BEACH TOYS, B1 here’s always plenty to do in the surf and sun, but when you’ve got a group to entertain, it’s good to have a few ideas up your beach-robe sleeve to keep them laughing.
