City says no to stench 'cleanser' at La Jolla Cove

By Pat Sherman A city employee said it is highly unlikely that a cleanser proposed to rid rocks at La Jolla Cove of their foul stench will be approved. Addressing those in attendance at the May 21 meeting of the La Jolla Parks and Beaches advisory committee, Dan Daneri, a district manager for the city’s parks and recreation department, said he learned of the city’s decision the previous week. Community members had pro-

posed spraying a non-toxic agent derived from pomegranate and chia seeds to clean bird and marine mammal excrement on the rocks, which is causing the pervasive, foul odor. “I just got the word; it’s coming from above me,” Daneri said, noting that a city biologist determined there is no way to spray the agent without potential environmental risks. “It doesn’t matter if it’s safe,” Daneri added. “There’s a huge concern with the environmental impact of

spraying around the water. You really can’t even walk down there and spray fresh water on those cliffs if it’s going to get in the (ocean). It’s storm water. The city of San Diego is on the hook for that. … The liability to the city — that’s what it’s coming down to.” Committee member Melinda Merryweather said she spent four months working with city officials

Fr. Jim Rafferty to mark 40 years in priesthood By Suzie Harrison As the parishioners at Mary, Star of the Sea Catholic Church prepare to celebrate pastor James Rafferty’s 40th year in the priesthood on June 10, Fr. Rafferty wants them to know he considers his assignment to La Jolla's church in the Village in 2008 to be a true highlight. His affinity for “this wonderful parish,” as he calls it, remains as strong as his commitment to his parishioners. “A wonderful door opened for me at Mary, Star of the Sea Parish, which I often refer to as ‘The Village Church,’” Fr. Rafferty said. “I hold many fond memories over my 40 years of priesthood, but truly delight in familiar parishioners, new relationships, and the familiar surroundings of Mary, Star of the Sea.” Working with the Stella Maris Academy’s students and the Catholic youth community are also endeavors close to Fr. Rafferty’s heart. “We have a particular service, which is focused on our youth community, between the two La Jolla parishes (the other is All Hallows) called The Gathering,” he said. “We try to move the preaching, the music, and a lot of the community more in a youth-oriented direction.” Over the years, Fr. Rafferty said he’s seen society and the church go through myriad changes, both in practices and faith. He said he strongly believes in the sanctity of marriage between a woman and a man, and feels something is wrong with a society that has an over 50-percent divorce rate. He counsels couples before they take their vows. “The biggest word, not in your marriage vows, may be the word ‘sacrifice,’ ” Fr. Rafferty said. “If you’re really going to have that person’s back and commit yourself to being there in all of the sea-

If you go Fr. Rafferty’s 40th Jubilee will begin at Mary, Star of the Sea Catholic Church, 7669 Girard Ave., with a 2 p.m. June 10 Mass of Thanksgiving, followed by a social at the Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa that will include drinks and hors d’oeuvres, dinner, tributes and the premiere of Fr. Rafferty’s film, “The Long Journey; Then ‘til Now.” For reservations, contact the parish office at (858) 454-2631. sons of life, then there will definitely be areas of sacrifice.” Fr. Rafferty’s calling to the church wasn’t necessarily innate. Originally, he thought he might go into psychology or become an accountant. “During the four years of college, studying for the B.A., as well as the four years of graduate school in theology awaiting a Master’s in Divinity and the final call to ordination, it was like looking through the wrong end of a telescope,” he said. “I experienced the years pass by so slowly, keeping my eye on what I sincerely believed to be a call from God in my senior year of high school to ‘Come after me, and I will make you (a fisher of men,) Matthew 4:19.’ ” Fr. Rafferty said it’s important for him to become familiar with his parishioners, to understand them, their worship needs, and know the personality of the parish. In the future, he said he would like to see greater parishioner participation with ongoing social activities and more adult education opportunities.

Veterans seek to light Mount Soledad Memorial By Pat Sherman A proposal to provide electricity to light the flag, walkway and veterans’ memorial walls at Mount Soledad Natural Park was presented by Mark Moncey, area manager for parks and recreation in La Jolla, at the May 21 meeting of the La Jolla Parks and Beaches advisory committee. The proposal by the Mt. Soledad Memorial Association calls for an easement to be created so that electrical current can travel underground from a panel at the park entrance to the memorial. The veterans association, which would fund the project, said the electricity would also provide power for PA systems during events, such as its annual Memorial Day observance, though it would not be used to light the controversial cross. “We’ve had many site meetings,” Moncey said. “From a parks and rec standpoint we are satisfied as far as the progress thus far.” Some people in attendance questioned whether the project would create light pollution that would interfere with stargazing atop Mount Soledad, or shine inside neighbors’ windows. “That location is a known city overview,” said John Beaver, a Parks and Beaches committee member. “Hundreds of people come up there to see the view of the city, and the darkness enhances the view from Mount Soledad over the city on clear nights. That should be heavily considered.” Mt. Soledad Memorial Association trustee Bob Phillips said the

proposed LED lights are being requested for public safety and are “so low level that they probably won’t be seen anywhere beyond the site.” Unless the flag is lit at night, Phillips noted, someone must raise it at sunrise and lower it at sunset each day. Mary Ellen Morgan asked if a light powered by a generator could

be used to first demonstrate the brightness of the proposed lighting “so that everyone can see that it’s not going to bother the stars … so that when this is decided it’s not a big surprise. “I think you won’t have as much resistance if you do something like that,” she said. However, Moncey said an initial

Opening sluiceways proposed again as way to clean Children’s Pool By Pat Sherman At its May 21 meeting, Parks and Beaches approved sending a letter to the city’s director of parks and recreation, Stacey LoMedico, asking that the city “investigate the benefits of re-opening one or more of the four existing sluiceways (or sluice gates) in the Children’s Pool seawall as a mitigation measure to correct the excessive buildup of contaminated sand.” A rope at the beach separating seals and humans during the seals’ six-month pupping season came down May 15. Proponents of keeping the rope up year-round note that the county health department has determined the water and sand at Children’s Pool to be unhealthy for human use, largely due to contamination from seal excrement. Those who are advocating for full, yearround human access to Children’s Pool feel that opening the sluiceways would flush the beach out and make it clean enough for human use, removing one of the seal advocates’ trump arguments for a year-round rope barrier. Parks and Beaches member and seal advocate Jane Reldan said that after the seawall was constructed in 1930, under the guidance of hydraulic engineer Hiram Newton Savage, the sluiceways were immediately closed due to the excessive amount of sand that was being flushed out to sea. Concrete was later poured into the sluicegates to seal them off, and parts of them were removed. During the late 1970s, when the walkway atop the seawall was rebuilt, access points where the gates could be lowered and raised were covered over. “If it is determined that this measure is technically not possible then we would ask for your staff to prepare an alternative plan to mitigate the sand and water quality issues at the site,” the letter also states. One committee member chimed in, stating that not using the sluice gates was like having a car without using its brakes.

What do you think? Should the city re-open long-dormant sluice gates on the seawall at Children’s Pool to clean the contaminated sand? Share your thoughts in a letter to the editor at susandemaggio@lajollalight.com “There’s a purpose to the sluiceways in the wall and they’ve never been used,” she said. It was noted that a proposal was made several years ago to remove contaminated sand and seal waste from the Children’s Pool beach, though the city denied the request based on potential environmental impacts. “I think you’re going to get the same answer back because you’re just going to have the same issues,” another committee member said. “I don’t see that it’s beneficial.” Parks and Beaches member Ken Hunrichs noted a study conducted by Testing Engineers-San Diego in 1998, which demonstrated the feasibility of reviving use of the sluice gates. He said reinstallation of the gates would allow for movement of water and sand in a “natural manner.” “It appears as though (the city) never really gave much of a chance for the gates to be open and closed,” he said. The California Coastal Commission is set to hear the city’s petition for a permit allowing a year-round rope at its July 11-13 hearing. Chairman Patrick Ahern suggested moving discussion of the sluicegates to a later date, perhaps September, after the Coastal Commission had made its decision.

In other committee action n Liability insurance Parks and Beaches Vice-president Dan Allen discussed the possibility of Parks and Beaches obtaining liability insurance. He said he felt it was not warranted since

the group doesn’t hold regular events or workshops where it could expose itself to liability. The group also has little money in its bank account, he said. “I think we need to look at this in a new light because, as I will soon report, we will have money very soon,” said Treasurer Phyllis Minick, noting a recent $5,000 donation to the group’s Coast Boulevard Walk beautification project from Dr. and Mrs. Jafar and Sophia Farnam. “I think there are so many issues around this area that garner lawsuits, and several members have spoken to me about some of the risks of our many projects. If I’m going to be out running around asking people for

money, I’d like to know that I’m not placing all of us in a state of risk.” Parks and Beaches recently established a page on the San Diego Foundation’s website where people can obtain information about the nonprofit organization and make a donation: bettergivingsd.org, click on “find an organization,” and type in La Jolla Parks and Beaches, Inc. n Taste at the Cove The group also gave its blessing to the San Diego Sports Foundation’s annual Taste at the Cove event, slated for Sept. 6, which raises money for the rehabilitation of injured youth athletes.

Exercise & Brain Health A recent study provides strong evidence that regular exercise may protect and even improve brain function. Researchers at the University of Washington found that seniors with mildcognitive impairment (often a precursor to Alzheimer’s disease) showed significant gains in mental agility after a 6 month program of supervised aerobic training. The non-aerobic group, however, continued to decline over the same time period in thinking speed, fluency with words, and ability to multi-task. In addition to slowing the rate of mental decline, exercise can help reduce falls and increase endurance, strength & flexibility. Alzheimer’s patients who perform stretching, balance, and strength training as part of a physical therapy program typically exhibit improvement in their mood as well. Physical therapists also use techniques to improve fine & gross motor skills, making daily activities easier - from picking up the morning paper to walking safely. The professional therapists at Ability Rehab will design a customized program to restore and maintain maximum movement & function, while helping to prevent further mental decline. If you or a loved one has noticed a decline in mental or physical capacity, call our office to see how we can help.

Michael Henely, a military veteran and former member of a World War II elite spy unit, the Jedburghs, was honored during an intimate memorial service Saturday, June 2. He died May 1 at age 88 after a long bout with pneumonia. A small group of family members and friends gathered at the La Jolla Shores Clubdominium to pay him tribute — mingling over cookies, cupcakes, iced tea and juices on a sunny afternoon. Some of the guests had known Henely for more than 40 years, others even more than 60. Joann Henely, his wife of 65 years, was among those present at the service, talking with guests. Images from Henely’s distinguished life as a loving father, a great friend, a military hero and a sports enthusiast were on display near the entrance of the clubhouse. “He was the sweetest man you could imagine,” said his wife. Shortly after noon, Henely’s eldest son, Mike, led the memorial service with a touching eulogy. Two of his brothers, Don and Robert, listened along with their families as Mike gave his speech. An-

Mike recalled the days when his father would read bedtime stories to him and his siblings — many times creating his own plot lines and characters. He also recounted the days when his family would go on cross-country trips, including those to Colorado. He went on to describe his father

as a decorated military hero, a Boy Scout leader, a church-goer, an avid racquetball player, a world traveler, and an immense figure in the household. “That is my dad,” he concluded. “He was a great guy and a great father.” Long-time family friend Gerhard Gengelbach was second to speak. He said he first met Henely during a fish-

ing trip to Mexico in the late 1970s. Later, guests gathered near the pool, as two military members, Sgt. Bruce K. Baker and Specialist James Amezcua, led the group in the playing of taps. Afterward, they meticulously folded a large American flag and presented it to Joann in recognition of Henely’s military career. A lunch reception followed.

Remembering a love story Joann said she first met Henely in 1946 during a freshman dance at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa. Joann was a 17-year-old freshman studying English. Henely was a 22-year-old business major, who had just returned from a stint overseas as a spy for the Jedburghs, a specially trained unit that was given the dangerous task of leading local resistance forces in Nazioccupied areas in France, Holland and Belgium. “He was on the opposite side of this big ballroom at the student union and I looked over and I said to my girlfriend, ‘I’m going to marry that man,’ ” Joann said. “It was a bolt of lightning if there ever was. Not very many people are that lucky to find the love of their lives, but we did.” The two traveled across the globe, even flying around the world four times during the 1980s. They operated two real-estate offices in Danville before retiring. Joann now shares her time between La Jolla and her beach home in Hawaii. “He was the quiet man. I was the talker. It made a perfect union, but we communicated all the time and the love was always there,” she said.

Community-funded projects at La Jolla Shores progressing as planned By Pat Sherman The 15-foot-long statue of J.J. the gray whale in Kellogg Park — and its admirers — will get a welcome respite from the heat this summer. By the time June gloom clears, a $40,000 shade structure that will keep the bronze statue cool to the touch should be complete. The work, made possible by private donations to the nonprofit Friends of La Jolla Shores, was well underway June 4, and should be complete by the end of next week, said the organization’s president, Mary Coakley. The statue, a tribute to a comatose gray whale rescued by SeaWorld and nursed back to health in 1997, will be sheltered by a mesh sailcloth, suspended by posts. “There had been some concrete dolphins in the playground that everyone really loved, so we wanted to put something back in there that the kids could climb on and enjoy, which also had an educational component,” Coakley said. “It’s taken a year to find a design that was minimally intrusive and would enhance J.J. and be semi-affordable.” Friends of La Jolla Shores hopes to create a mural on the seat wall surrounding the playground that will tell J.J.’s story. Fish panels update Installation of interpretive panels depicting 52 of the most prominent species of fish found off the coast of La Jolla Shores should begin in four to five weeks, Coakley said.

Station Donations n Call Mary Coakley at (619) 840-0250 or e-mail coakleym@san.rr.com Department. The roughly $11,000 project is a collaboration with Birch Aquarium.

An architectural rendering of the shade sail. The posts and sail will be sand colored to blend with the panels on the playground. Courtesy The work was funded through a donation from the La Jolla Community Foundation, the office of County Supervisor Pam SlaterPrice and donations to the Friends of La Jolla Shores. Local underwater photographers were asked to submit their best shots of fish inhabiting the shoreline and underwater canyons off La Jolla Shores, which are also depicted in bronze on a map between the playground and bathroom. Paula Selby donated graphics and layout for the project, and John Schenck provided archi-

tectural drawings and additional support. A company in Quebec will bake the photos onto aluminum panels. “It’s supposed to hold up much better to the elements,” Coakley said. Next to each photograph will be a small garibaldi fish icon. When the corresponding garibaldi is scanned with a smartphone, the viewer will be taken to a website with additional information about the species in the photo. The 27-foot-long panel, to be located adjacent the garden in Kellog Park, will be installed by San Diego’s Parks and Recreation

Comfort station coming The Friends of La Jolla Shores also is seeking donations for a lavatory to replace the existing north bathroom at Kellogg Park, to be completed by La Jolla-based Beacham Construction. The family of investor John Watson, who was murdered inside his La Jolla Shores apartment in 2010, has pledged $450,000 for the project. “He loved the Shores and his family wanted to do something in his memory,” Coakley said. “When they saw the condition of the north bathroom, they decided that they wanted to make a donation to replace it in his memory. “The Friends of La Jolla Shores is trying to make sure that we can build it for that amount, but we’ll probably have to raise the difference somehow.” Coakley said the project, known as the Kellog Park North Comfort Station, replaces an earlier bathroom design that was deemed too large and contained artwork the community found objectionable. Construction is expected to begin in the fall.

Evans School celebrates return of ‘adopted’ Marines By Catherine Ivey Lee U.S. Marine Lance Cpl. Timothy Gregory lived much of the year in a dusty tent in southern Afghanistan. Nights on post were so cold, he thought he’d freeze. There was no plumbing, electricity or running water. Routine patrols weren’t always routine. Local children threw rocks. So when white care packages periodically arrived for him, the 27-year-old Philadelphia native was more than grateful. “Every time we got a package, it felt like Christmas,” Gregory recalled. “It just felt good knowing somebody was thinking of you.” Gregory and a small group of other Marines got to thank the senders of those packages in person at a jubilant welcome home celebration at The Evans School last week. Students, teachers and parents at the junior kindergarten to sixth-grade school “adopted” 25 Marines from the 2nd Battalion, 11th Marine Regiment this year, sending them packages, cards and moral support throughout their seven-month deployment to Afghanistan. The men returned to Camp Pendleton two weeks ago. “It was so great,” said Brigid Hannon, a parent who helped to organize the care packages. “We just love these boys.” Wearing red, white and blue hats, students eager to put faces to names waved American flags and cheered as the Marines, dressed in civilian clothes, entered a decorated school library to the tune of the U.S. Marine Corps Hymn. Students sang the men patriotic songs, and Evans teacher Capt. Howard Young, a retired Navy aviator, awarded each a gold medal from the school. The Marines, ages 18-27, presented a flag flown over their base in Afghanistan’s Helmand province before enjoying cake and ice cream – along with hugs and requests for autographs.

“It was amazing to finally meet them,” said Katherine Brown, a sixth-grader. “I could have cried.” The adoption idea arose from a conversation last fall with a former Evans’ parent set to deploy to Afghanistan. School officials

encouraged Master Sgt. Max Robertson, an officer with the 2nd Battalion, 11th Regiment, to compile a list of young Marines who “might need some mail and attention” overseas, said Head of School Gale Baer. The Evans Marines were born.

The project meshed neatly with the private school’s mission to not only educate students academically but to mold good citizens who respect God, country and each other. Each classroom adopted three Marines, and donations of homemade cookies, books, candy, magazines, playing cards, snacks, shampoo and gift cards poured in. Students penned cards and letters. Packages were dispatched at Christmas, Valentine’s Day and in late spring, Hannon said. In visits to classrooms, the Marines told students what their support had meant. Beef jerky and granola bars kept the men going when patrols unexpectedly stretched from hours into days. Gum proved better than a toothbrush after three days away from base camp. One man told the students that whenever he had a bad day, he’d pull out a packet of cards from the students to cheer up. They also talked to students about life on patrol and their belief that many Afghanis want a better life for their family. Rachel Greenfield, a fifth-grade student, was shocked when her class’s Marine shared that some Afghani girls are punished severely for seeking an education. “We take it for granted,” she said. “We all deserve to learn.” And after hearing that many Afghanis cannot read or write, Clare Hannon, a fourth-grader, looked up literacy rates for Afghanistan in a school almanac and learned the country has one of the lowest in the world. Her father, a Navy commander and trauma surgeon, will leave this fall on his third deployment to the region. The school hopes to keep the relationships going. Email addresses were exchanged, and plans were made for a Thanksgiving feast. That suits one Marine just fine. “We were so happy,” Cpl. Gregory said. “We went from kids throwing rocks at us to kids clapping for us.”

Continued findings on bacterial growth, resistance

Research Report By Lynne Friedmann

S

cientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have unraveled a complex chemical pathway that enables bacteria to form clusters known as “biofilms.” Biofilm formation occurs when bacterial cells adhere to each other and to surfaces as part of their growth cycle or to set up a defense against attack: Cells on the outside of a biofilm are susceptible to antibiotics but protected interior cells are more difficult to kill. Biofilms play key roles in conditions ranging from gum disease to cholera, and from cystic fibrosis to Legionnaires’ disease. When biofilms form on medical devices, such as heart valves or catheters, deadly infections can follow. The TSRI findings build on past research on the role of nitric oxide in initiating a chemical cascade that leads to a number of physiological

functions in the body. In sufficient quantity nitric oxide is toxic to bacteria, so it was logical that nitric oxide would trigger bacteria to huddle into a biofilm. But nobody knew precisely how. In this study, TSRI researchers detailed the signaling pathway from nitric oxide through cellular regulators and on to biofilm formation. The study appears in the journal Molecular Cell. News release at http://bit.ly/I8nE36 Gene duplication helped our brains become ‘human’ A team led by scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) has shown that an extra copy of a brain-development gene, which appeared in our ancestors’ genomes about 2.4 million years ago, allowed maturing neurons to migrate farther and develop more connections. Surprisingly, the added copy doesn’t augment the function of the original gene, which makes neurons sprout connections to neighboring cells. Instead it interferes with that original function, effectively giving neurons more time to wire themselves into a bigger brain. The study of human-specific gene duplications could lead to a better understanding of human de-

velopmental disorders and also suggests a new way to think about how evolution occurs. The findings appear in the journal Cell. News release at http://bit. ly/JhmwKI Overweight teens satisfied with body shape less prone to depression A study of the relationships between body satisfaction and healthy psychological functioning in overweight adolescents has found that young women who are happy with the size and shape of their bodies report higher levels of self-esteem. This positive outlook suggests that improving body satisfaction could be a key component of interventions for overweight youth. The findings suggest the girls in the study may also be protected against the negative behavioral and psychological factors sometimes associated with being overweight such as fasting, skipping meals, or induced vomiting. The study, conducted by the UC San Diego School of Medicine, appears in the Journal of Adolescent Health.

From Mom, A1 States (30 total) serve as Honorary Bat Girls for Mother’s Day at the Major League parks. To compete, Scott submitted a heartfelt essay recounting his devastating reaction to the news that his mother, a longtime Padre’s fan, had breast cancer, when he was a high school junior. “Being her only child, while it may not have always been appreciated at the time, I was lucky enough to always have her complete devotion, attention and love … countless trips to Padre games … always going above and beyond,” Scott wrote as he shared her diagnosis, successful double mastectomy, recovery, and their mutual love of the Padres. Scott concluded with, “Getting the chance to be an Honorary Bat Girl would be the best Mother’s Day gift this mother, teacher, and Padres fan could receive!” “His essay still brings tears to my eyes,” Sandy said. “I won out over 15 others for the Padres Bat Girl, but it wasn’t just the popular vote; it had a lot to do with the essay.” The guest judging panel included Barry Zito of the San Francisco Giants, Joe Blanton of the Philadelphia Phillies, Jason Heyward of the Atlanta Braves, and Howie Kendrick of the Los Angeles Angels at Anaheim.

“Everyone on the panel had either lost someone to cancer or knew someone who was a survivor,” Sandy said. As an honorary Bat Girl, Sandy didn’t actually carry any bats, but the Padres invited her, Scott, and a friend onto the field to watch batting practice. Shortly afterward, the team awarded Sandy with an official white Padres jersey sporting the words “Bat Girl” in pink letters and a pink ribbon on the back. Next, she met Padres Manager, Bud Black, and then the announcer read Scott’s letter before introducing Sandy to the crowd. She waved before receiving a certificate signed by Bud Selig, the Commissioner of Baseball, stating that she was named an Honorary Bat Girl for 2012. ‘The whole stadium learned that I had a double mastectomy and that I’m 11 years cancerfree,” Sandy said. “It was wonderful. Then six of us were brought up to the owner’s box to watch the game and have food; I felt like a queen and was overjoyed that my son did this.” The fun continues for Sandy, whose story has been featured on Fox TV stations. Soon she’ll receive a pink bat from the Padres inscribed “2012 Honorary Bat Girl, Sandy Sibley” — a perfect souvenir for a grand slam Mother’s Day.

Body found off La Jolla Shores identified as missing Oceanside diver City News Service An investigator with the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s office said a body located off the La Jolla coastline, Sunday, June 3 was identified as Jeffrey J. May, the 45-year-old Oceanside man who disappeared there Memorial Day. A volunteer diver going deeper than most found the corpse about 175 feet below the surface at about 7:15 a.m., according to city lifeguard Lt. Andy Lerum. The body was brought to the surface and lifeguards were called shortly before 8 a.m., he said. “We responded and observed a (deceased) person wearing scuba gear. He had been deceased for a number of days,” Lerum said. The scuba gear was missing a weight belt, he said. The body was taken by rescue boat to a dock in Mission Bay, where the San Diego County Medical Examiner's Office took over, he said. A medical examination to determine the cause and manner of death was pending as of La Jolla Light’s press time. May was reported missing May 28 after a planned dive in the area. He went to La Jolla Shores early in that morning, telling his wife he planned to meet up with a diving group. She reported him missing about 8 p.m. that evening, city lifeguards said. May had rented a scuba tank and some diving weights at OEexpress dive shop on Avenida De La Playa, but authorities could find no one who saw him entering the wa-

ter. His dive-group members also reported no contact with him. May’s car was found in a parking lot in the area, and a plastic tub holding his car keys, sunglasses and clothing was located in a grassy area along the beach. Lifeguards used remote operating vehicles and searched for days following May’s disap-

pearance, Lerum said. The body was found at a depth below where rescue divers can safely go. La Jolla Shores is a popular dive spot for both experienced and novice divers due to is gently sloping shoreline. On Monday morning a diver at La Jolla Shores, who asked that his name not be

used, said divers should think twice before entering the water alone. If a medical emergency, loss of air or other equipment malfunction were to occur, a fellow diver may be able to assist them to the surface where they can receive medical attention. — La Jolla Light Reporter Pat Sherman contributed to this report

Spotlight on Local Businesses Local writer publishes eBook set in La Jolla in the 1980s Author Sherry Moeller Campbell, La Jolla High School Class of 1963, released her La Jolla mystery/comedy novel through Kindle and Nook. The eBook, “Just Stab Me in the Eye,” focuses on a “slacker beach chick and sexy private dick seeking a dude who’s kinda sick.

What starts off as a search into his seedy past turns into a wacky odyssey

when Caribe becomes the target of a mad killer. Frantic, she tries past-life regression, sees a modern-day medicine man, enlists the aid of a sexy private eye, and even takes a jab at boxing lessons in a desperate search for clues to stop a twisted mind bent on ruining … well, just about everything.

LA JOLLA LIGHT - june 7, 2012 - Page A17

Rotarians award $150,000 to La Jolla graduates By Pat Sherman The Rotary Club of La Jolla awarded $150,000 in college scholarships to 22 graduating La Jolla High School seniors during its May 22 luncheon at the La Valencia Hotel. “Parents, you should be real proud of these students, the way they interview, the way they present themselves, the accomplishments they’ve already made — and they’re only at the beginning,” said Cindy Goodman, chair of the club’s scholarship committee. Goodman said applicant interviews took place during a blackout. “There was no power, the elevators weren’t working and the stairwells were locked,” she said, addressing the students. “You accepted that challenge with great humor and grace and dignity. It proves that when you go on to school you’re going to do well under stress.” Rotarian Russell King, associate director for strategic initiatives at UC San Diego, served as master of ceremonies.

King noted that the percentage of students graduating from high school or receiving a high school equivalency certificate in San Diego County is only 74 percent. He said socioeconomic barriers were the most prominent factor in whether a student attends college. “Socioeconomic issues should not stop someone from getting an education,” King said. “There are students that are in this room that are beating the odds. They’re getting into some schools I know I couldn’t get into, and they worked really hard to get there. We’re here to help you get to the next level.” King said the number of outstanding federal student loans is currently $900 billion, while the number of private student loans is about $140 million — the former being greater than both the country’s overall mortgage debt and credit card debt. “We need to fill that gap,” he said. “We need to make sure that these students, when they get out of college, are not in debt.”

There’s a big problem with little plastic bags To sign Lewis' petition

lastic bags. Oh, they are such a helpful resource in our society. But are they really worth it? Are they really worth killing animals, overflowing our landfills, and polluting our environment? Every man, woman, and child on our planet uses more than 100 bags a year. That may not seem like a lot, but we use more than three trillion plastic bags every year worldwide. 3,000,000,000,000. That is 12 zeros. And only 1 percent are recycled! Have you ever thought how much these bags can damage our environment? More than you may realize. Many people go through their daily lives not noticing the impact plastic bags have on the environment. There are many reasons that plastic bags shouldn’t be used. They kill more than 100,000 marine animals each year, mainly the sea turtle. But they don’t kill only marine animals. They kill land animals, too, like the thousands of birds that swallow them and die. Also, the bags take more than 400 years to biodegrade! That means your children’s, children’s, children will still have the burden of the

I’d vote for a Benedict Arnold Act, would you? When our forefathers wrote the First Amendment, which gave us the Freedom of Speech, they surely never meant that citizens would hide behind this amendment to vilify, demean, denigrate, or disparage their country, the United States of America. Is this happening today?

Evan Lewis same plastic bag you used today. Did you know, that the plastic bag was first used in 1957? If you do the math, not one plastic bag has ever completely biodegraded! Have you heard of all of the chemicals in plastic bags? As the bags start to break down, the chemicals enter the soil and our drinking water, which can be very harmful to all animals, including humans. Have you heard of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch that is floating across the North Pacific Ocean? This “patch” is larger than the size of Texas. The funny thing is, this patch was not even there until plastic was invented! The patch is mainly made of plastic debris and trash that has washed out into the ocean. This plastic can be very harmful if a marine animal or a bird be-

When an American general did so in the late 1700s, he was convicted and put on a ship for the remainder of his life never to set foot on our soil again. His name was Benedict Arnold. This sentence proves that the Founding Fathers never intended the amendment to protect citizens who denigrate and curse our country. Some citizens of the USA have repeatedly shown a degree of hatred with language that might make this paper smolder. We need a law in our legislature that allows criticism, but places a limit on a show of violent speech against our country. We would call this law the Benedict Arnold

comes entangled in it and drowns or swallows it. Also, the plastic breaks down and releases toxins into the water, killing animals. Some 267 marine species are killed just from plastic debris in the ocean! What can you do to help? One way is to bring your own reusable and recyclable bags to stores and use them for as long as possible. These can be used at the grocery store, at picnics or lunches, or just to carry things. If you forget your reusable bag at a store, try and get paper as a alternative to plastic bags. Also, try to reduce, reuse, and recycle as much as possible. Keep in mind that anything that may have a small or large impact on the environment is still an impact. We all have a choice when it comes to the use of plastics, we just have to make the right one.

Act. People showing hatred above “normal” should be penalized in some way. Consider the following, deportation, incarceration, limitation on travel, loss of driving and voting privileges, or named on a NOT WANTED IN MY CITY list. The authors of the Constitution probably never imagined that citizens could belittle and defame our beloved country. Hopefully, some enthusiastic, loyal Congressman will propose a law that will stop the abuse of freedom of speech. Patricia Weber La Jolla resident since 1953

Coast Walkers have openings for fall Sonoma County hike our readers write In 2002, a group of friends who enjoyed weekend walking together around San Diego County decided, under the leadership and organization of Nick Haritatos and Ron Williamson, to walk from the Mexican border to Oregon along the beaches following the California Coastal Trail. The earliest segments spanned two or three days, then wives or significant others were included, and the walks expanded to a full week covering 10-12 miles a day. Each walking segment begins where the previous segment ended; each group of walkers ranges from 6 to 11 people. The walk in November 2011 ended with a glorious 1.7-mile hike from south to north on the Golden Gate Bridge and a tracing back of the same distance again. It was so exhilarating that the group decided to start the May 12, 2012 walk with yet another trip on foot across the magnificent span — just as “she” celebrated her 75th birthday. We don't rough it, the 11 of us, as usual, have a chase car drop us off at starting points and pick us up at intervals. We sleep

in motels every night and after cleaning up, we celebrate each day's walk with a nice dinner out. The walkers are ages, 50 to early 70s. This May's walk included Sausalito, Point Reyes (where we visited the lighthouse), Rodeo Beach, Bolinas, Tomales Bay, and Bodega Bay. We took a break from walking to kayak five miles on the Russian River and then walked the Armstrong Redwood Forest. Along the way, we eat local fare — especially memorable was the BBQ oysters (fresh from the water) at the Marshall Store in Marshall, Calif. Crab sandwiches and fresh, locally caught fish were daily fare. The group has christened itself Coast Walkers. Couples who are fit and can walk 10-12 miles a day can inquire about joining the next segment in October, by e-mailing mtlke@aol.com (put Coast Walkers in the subject line). The group will leave from San Diego and will fly to Santa Rosa on Oct. 21. For more information, go to calcoastwalkers.weebly.com/

During the summertime — coming very soon — there is a terrible, terrible odor out there that bothers everybody.” Merryweather said NOAA was close to lending its approval to the spray, as long as it doesn’t disturb the sea lions. “That remains to be seen,” Daneri said. “How you can spray above the high-tide line without disturbing those sea lions?” Merryweather said a community member has volunteered to pay for the product and its application, noting that the stench-removing solution has been used at the Los Angeles Zoo and at San Diego’s Zoo’s Wild Animal Park.

If tourniquets are applied too tightly, they will decrease blood flow to the affected area and might also concentrate the venom, increasing local tissue damage. Suctioning the wound is ineffective in removing venom because the venom is usually injected too deeply into tissue.

Former La Jolla High player picked No. 5 in MLB Draft By Phil Dailey It was only a few years ago when Kyle Zimmer played high school baseball in La Jolla. On Monday night, the former Viking standout, and current right-handed pitcher at the University of San Francisco, was selected No. 5 in the Major League Baseball Draft by the Kansas City Royals. The announcement aired live on the MLB Network and showed a live celebration of the Zimmer's house in La Jolla. Kyle, a 2009 graduate of Kyle LJHS, plays at USF with his Zimmer younger brother Bradley, a 2011 graduate of LJHS. The two come from an athletic family as their father, Eric, who is an anesthesiologist, was a baseball player at UC San Diego and their mother, Cathy, who is a counselor at La Jolla High, ran track at San Diego State. Kyle Zimmer was 5-3 this season for USF, but was hampered by a hamstring injury late in the season. He led the West Coast Conference in strikeouts despite the injury. Zimmer was expected to go in the first round, but some experts thought he may slip a bit because of the injury. "I feel fine, everything feels great." said Zimmer, shortly after getting picked by the Royals.

LJYB enjoys big weekend at Memorial Day Tournament By Tom Murphy La Jolla Youth Baseball a Jolla Youth Baseball strongly supports post-season play and sent 15 teams to the Memorial Day Tournament as proof. The annual tournament was hosted by Tecolote Youth Baseball and includes tournament teams from around the region. It is a good tune-up for kids that will play in the official PONY All Star tournament, with Sectional games starting as early as June 20th. “Why send so many teams to the Memorial Day tourney” is a valid question and “Does it dilute the significance of All Stars?” is typically the next question. LJYB’s leadership made a conscious decision a few years ago to encourage as many players as possible to experience tournament play as another way to develop more advanced skills and sharpen their mental game by playing at the next level against other tournament teams outside the league and at different venues. Everyone improves their game and the tournament format is exciting. All Star managers have to juggle lineups when families go on vacation so having an active bench of players is key when playing deeper into the Regional and Zone tournaments. Last year the Bronco 11s were only three games away from the PONY World Series and barely fielded 9 players and 1 coach for a couple of games up in Los Angeles, so depth matters. The San Diego Pony Inteleague teams scheduled their playoffs during the Memorial Tournament so more teams and players

Courtesy could participate and enjoy the festivities at Tecolote. Among the nine playoff teams, RBC was seeded No. 3 and — lo and behold — they came in 3rd Place. The top two teams all season were the Tecolote-Toreros and Tecolote-Aztecs and they finished 1st and 2nd in a close championship game ending up with a walk-off triple to break a 3-3 tie in the bottom of the 7th. On their way to the semifinals, RBC snuck

by LJYB’s SDG 10-9 before dropping a game to the Aztecs 5-3. Rotary Club of La Jolla found their way into the losers bracket after dropping their opening game to the Aztecs, then made quick work against North City in a 13-3 game that was shortened by the mercy rule. Rotary and SDG faced each other in an elimination game that went down to the wire with SDG advancing 9-8. SDG was eliminated in the next round in a heart-

breaking finish. Backed by solid pitching by Trenton Fudge, Michael Marshall and Kevin Boormeester, they were tied 4-4 against the Tecolote-Rams in the bottom of the 7th inning with two outs and a runner on third base. The Rams batter struck out swinging but the ball got away from the catcher, who had to throw to first base to complete the out. Unfortunately the throw hit the runner in the shoulder, he is safe at first and the runner on third steals home to end the game and the season for SDG. Carter Chopskie contributed to one of RBC’s victories with a grand slam. RBC’s season ended in a tough 3-2 loss to the Aztecs, thanks in part to a blown call by the umpire who failed to call a balk on a pitcher who — throwing from the wind-up — stops his delivery to chase the runner coming from third in a squeeze bunt called by Coach Agbulos. You can’t make up this stuff! In the Bronco tournament, La Jolla’s Red team beat North City Mix 12-0 in four innings with strong pitching from Sterling Hayes and Carson Greene. They dropped their next game in pool play to Chula Vista South, forcing a rematch in the Gold semifinals which La Jolla lost 3-2 and — believe it or not — the umpire missed an obvious balk that would have scored the La Jolla runner from 3rd base to tie the game. The Bronco 11s dropped their opening game in pool play to North City 12s and came roaring back in the next game to beat

LA JOLLA LIGHT - june 7, 2012 - Page A23

From LJYB, A22 Tecolote Blue 14-2. They did not advance to the medal game in the Silver division. LJYB’s Blue team was down 6-1 against Tecolote Blue and put up 6 runs in the 4th inning thanks in part to a bases-clearing bunt ‘triple’ by Bobby Murphy that tied the game (a throwing error may have helped their cause.) After the 10-9 victory, they faced a couple of dominant teams and went down swinging against North City Mix. In the Mustang division, La Jolla Red won both games in pool play, beating North City 9s 11-5 and North City Mix 8-0. They dropped their semi-final game to North City Red. The La Jolla 9s had a rough draw in pool play, losing a close 6-5 game to North City 9s before getting beat by Chula Vista South and North City Mix. The Mustang Blue team probably had the best time of anyone even though they went 0-3 and the scores aren’t suitable for publication in a family paper. All season long, Pinto has been the Fun Zone of LJYB. At Tecolote, La Jolla Red ran the table in pool play going 4-0 including a Sunday doubleheader sweep over North City Red and Tecolote Red. The second game of the twin bill was a 10-9 come-from-behind victory over the highly regarded Red team from Tecolote. The La Jolla “Red Stripers” were led by the booming bats of Jack Boynton and Nathan Latimer, the stealth base running of Connor Hobbs and Spence Carswell and the flawless fielding of Tony Ide and Christian Nava. Unfortunately Tec Red got their revenge in the championship game on Monday, taking it to La Jolla 17-5. Coach Jim Duffy said the boys played great and

looks forward to facing them again in the PONY tournament. Brian LaGrange managed the La Jolla Blue team and they tied Mission Bay Little League and lost to Tecolote Red in Pool play. In the playoffs, they pulled off a nice win over North City Blue before being eliminated by Tecolote 7s in the Silver semifinals. The La Jolla White team enjoyed a tune-up at the Chelsea King tournament the weekend before Memorial Day where they had a 1-1 record. At Tecolote, they had to play three games on Saturday but came up short against North City Red, Tecolote Blue and Tecolote White. Their last game went down to the wire tied 11-11 in the bottom of the 6th with defensive gems being turned in by Flynn Dartland and Austin Peterson, but a bang-bang play at the plate was called safe for a Tecolote win. For the second year in a row, two La Jolla Shetland teams made it to the Championship game. The Blue team lost their playoff game in extra innings, barely missing an appearance in the semi-finals. La Jolla’s Red and White teams battled it out for the Championship trophy which was awarded to Coach Chris Circuit’s Red team with the final score of 16-9. It is encouraging to see such talent coming up the ranks into the Pinto and Mustang divisions. LJYB will be hosting portions of the PONY Section tournament beginning on June 20. Both the Pony-13s and Pony-14s will be played at Cliffridge Park, along with the Bronco-11s team. It is an honor to host the PONY tournament and LJYB looks forward to being a good host to all the players, coaches, families and PONY officials that participate on our fields.

Leading projects keeps John Jarvis busy at work and in the community A graduate of La Jolla High School, class of 1982, John Jarvis earned his bachelor of arts in business economics at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He has served on various boards and taken leadership roles at the La Jolla High School Foundation, San Diego Rowing Club, Make A Wish Foundation, International Facility Management Association (IFMA), BIOCOM, and La Jolla YMCA Adventure Guides and YMCA John Jarvis Overnight Camps. He is also a member of LEAD San Diego, Class of 2004, and he attended the Center For Creative Leadership Development Program in 2005. Jarvis has been representing San Diego companies in commercial real estate negotiations since 1987. As a principal at Hughes Marino, in addition to his client projects, he is responsible for leadership development programs at the company. Jarvis resides in La Jolla with his wife and three children. What brought you to La Jolla? My family would vacation at the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club beginning in 1970, and we moved permanently in 1975 to a home on Spindrift just up from the club. What might you add, subtract or improve in the area? It’s pretty good as it is today, but how about local dogs allowed on the beach, fire rings yearround with wood bundles dropped off each morning, and a point left surf break in front of the Contemporary Art Museum. Who or what inspires you? Our three children are my main source of inspiration. We do our best as parents; we encourage them to be bold and think for themselves. Then they grow up and strike out on some ambitious plan, and as a parent, it can be wonderfully shocking. Our kids are the reason I do most of the worthwhile things that I do.

Sound Effects Modern music festival challenges listeners, conventions By David L. Coddon or the sixth year, the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library, in collaboration with San Diego New Music, is challenging audiences to listen like they’ve never listened before and to be open to soundscapes that push the boundaries of jazz, chamber and post-classical music. In short, the soundON Festival of Modern Music is for the adventurous, both in the audience and on the stage.

11 artists win recognition in plein-air show By Will Bowen The La Jolla Art Association Gallery in the Shores was packed from wall to wall with wide-eyed chattering enthusiasts on Saturday, May 19 for the “Under the Sky” plein-air painting competition reception and awards ceremony. “This is the biggest, craziest show we have ever had,” said curator Rae Ann Marks. “There must be 300 people here tonight and we have already sold 10 paintings. I think this is the wave of the future for our organization.” Marks said she spent five days and nights in the gallery “working like a

madman” to hang the art and judge all the plein-air works submitted. “Plein-air painting is very challenging,” she said. “You are outdoors and you have to paint very quickly and finish your painting in three hours or less … and the light is changing, you’re sweating, there are bugs all around you, and people trying to talk to you. It’s not plein-air if you paint from a photograph or take too long. That’s why most plein-air paintings are small. “I have to say that this was the

The Tomato Benedict features poached eggs on top of braised tomato slices.

Finch’s is fun, fanciful for wine as well as feasting By Kelley Carlson hen it comes to identifying the food and style of Finch’s Wine Bar and Bistro, the establishment can’t be pigeonholed. It’s quirky and cozy, upscale yet casual. It’s family-friendly, but still provides an intimate setting for dates. And it provides international flavor, as the South African-born Linda and Marshall Ravden — who co-own Finch’s with their son and daughter-in-law, Nick and Tiana — find much of the inspiration for their dishes during their travels across the pond. “People come in and say they feel like they’re not in La Jolla anymore,” Tiana said, "Rather, they’ve taken a little trip to Europe," Linda added. Patrons enter through wrought-iron gates into Finch’s courtyard, which is shaded by trees and perfumed by flowers. On warm, bright days, guests chatter around tables — much like the social, musical birds the restaurant is named for — while a fountain provides a soothing background sound. Coincidentally, during the site’s previous incarnation as Cafe Lautrec, finches resided in cages on the patio. The fact was unbeknownst to the Ravdens when they chose the name for their restaurant. From 6 to 10 p.m. Friday through Sunday,

W

“jazzy, low-key, nonintrusive” entertainment is provided in the courtyard, allowing people the opportunity to comfortably converse. Local musicians play tunes in various styles, from bossa nova and blues to Spanish guitar. As the weather gets warmer, performances will be Tuesday through Sunday. The interior spaces -- consisting of the main dining room and wine bar -- feature sunny hues and plenty of natural light, along with black-and-white striped accents. Tables are covered in white linens, with water carafes topped with lemons and salt and pepper shakers in the form of black and white birds. In the wine bar, guests can customize their Bloody Marys, part of the “Liquid Lunch” menu that also includes bottomless mimosas and other beverages, or opt for wine flights -tastings of multiple vintages. And they can still order full meals. Guests will find that the culinary offerings at Finch’s are quite eclectic. “We try to have things on the menu that you won’t find anywhere else at all,” Linda said. “We try to be very inventive with our food, but unpretentious.” One example is the South African dish of Bobotie. Finch’s version consists of spiced ground lamb, peas, carrots, Bechamel sauce, jasmine rice with raisins, and mango chutney.

On The Menu Recipe Each week you’ll find a recipe from the featured restaurant online at lajollalight.com. Just click ‘Get The Recipe’ at the bottom of the story. ■ This Week: Finch’s Watermelon Gazpacho Among other unique creations is the Pistachio Crusted Salmon with French lentils, organic spring mix blood orange salad and saffron citrus beurre blanc. Seafood lovers can also appreciate the Shrimp Portofino, with grilled butterflied jumbo shrimp, crispy Yukon Gold potatoes, marinated heirloom tomato avocado salad and lemon garlic sauce; and the Lobster Carbonara, a marriage of linguini with pancetta, peas and lobster Parmesan cream. Those who relish red meat may find the Meat and Potatoes entree tantalizing, with filet mignon, porcini butter, red wine jus, gorgonzola potato risotto and roasted garlic spinach. While the cuisine may have foreign influences, many of the ingredients are obtained from local distributors. The daily specials —

soups, frittatas and mussels, and crepes on Sundays — constantly vary, driven by the availability of seasonal items. For instance, one will find Chilled Mango Avocado and Watermelon Gazpacho soups on the summer menu, while Tuscan White Bean Butternut makes an appearance during the cooler months. There is no set children’s menu, but items can be customized for the youngsters. They can draw on paper with crayons while waiting for fare such as bow-tie pasta with butter and grilled cheese sandwiches. For a romantic Finch’s experience, Linda and Tiana recommend dining at night on the patio, near the musicians and the fountain. Order a dish you normally wouldn’t try, and then share a housemade dessert — specifically the Chocolate French Toast Sandwich with maple bourbon bacon sauce and ice cream. To further enjoy the restaurant’s offerings, people may sign up for e-mail notification of wine pairing dinners and “wine appreciation” classes. Finch’s also holds sip-and-shop soirees, in which local female business owners sell items while guests get a “taste” of the establishment. To celebrate special occasions, Finch’s hosts numerous types of events — including wedding rehearsals, birthdays and retirement parties — and provides off-site catering.

Some of my friends think I’m crazy, but I tell my kids all the time: You are perfect as you are. You don’t have to get A’s. You don’t have to go to college. You probably will, and you will likely do great things, because therein lies the richness in life, but you don’t have to do it for me. What would be your dream vacation? I am a simple man. Tavarua would be fine. What historical figure do you most identify with? Snoopy is pretty cool. From Wikipedia: “Snoopy began his life in the strip as a fairly conventional dog, but eventually evolved into perhaps the strip’s most dynamic character.”

Author shares data, diligence for food safety By Linda Hutchison How do we make sure that the food we eat and the water we drink is safe? Of the millions of microbes we encounter daily, ddonly a small minority are harmful, but if they contaminate our food, the results can be dangerous or even deadly for many of us. It takes a food safety microbiologist like Phyllis Entis of La Jolla to help us identify and avoid the bad microbes as much as possible. As the author of "Food Safety: Old Habits, New Perspectives," and the blog e.FoodAlert.net, Entis believes we are all responsible (including food producers and processors, government regulators, and individual consumers) for keeping our Phyllis food and water safe. Entis Before writing her book, Entis performed her microbe hunting in both the public and the private sector. With a bachelor's degree in microbiology and immunology from McGill University in Montreal, Canada (where she was born), and a master's degree in clinical mycology (the study of fungi and yeasts) from the University of Toronto, Entis worked for Canada's Health Protection Branch (similar to the American Food and Drug Administration) for several years. As a regional manager in Montreal, she oversaw several investigations, including one into repeated contamination of milk powder with Salmonella, described in her book. In 1979, she and her husband, a Montreal businessman, formed their own independent testing company, QA Laboratories, which they operated in Toronto for a dozen years. Since the majority of their customers were American food processing companies, they moved their company to San Diego in 1991 and continued with their work until 2001, when they sold the company. But the work of a food safety microbiologist with a mission to educate is never finished and Entis quickly found new projects, writing articles for the Del Mar Times and a reference book for use in labs. In 2004, she and her husband decided during one beautiful autumn to move to Vermont, a move she describes as "seven lean years of exile where the main activity was swatting mosquitoes." Exile proved productive for Entis, however, as she wrote "Food Safety," calling on her years of scientific experience and love of research and writing. Her challenge, which she met, was to write a book that was interesting enough to reach the lay consumer and technical enough to teach college students. The book includes many examples of her investigations into major food contamination events and suggestions for learning from the past and changing old habits when necessary. "Each of us — consumer, restaurant owner, food service worker, meat or poultry pro-

Food Safety Advice ■ Handle, prepare, and store food safely. ■ B e aware of what is being recalled and check cupboards. Recent recalls have included pet food and pre-packaged vegetables. ■ Avoid pre-packaged lettuce. ■ Avoid eating sushi or steak tartare, "a disaster waiting to happen." ■ E ven organic produce must be washed carefully. "There is nothing about organic farming that protects produce from contamination with harmful bacteria." — Phyllis Entis ducer, farmer, or food processor — must make a commitment to learn correct procedures and apply them consistently." The book also recommends consolidating government inspection agencies and posting results online. Soon after her book was published in 2006, Entis started her blog, focusing first on "one-stop shopping on food recalls around the world." Her goal is to help and educate people by explaining complex issues such as why certain foods have been recalled, possible causes, and pathogen profiles. According to Entis, the major media mishandles this information, veering between minimal and sensational. "I am trying to be the voice of reason, with accurate, reasoned interpretation," she said. She also cross checks all information for accuracy, going to original sources and has built up a network of contacts around the world. Last year, Entis and her husband returned from exile and re-settled in La Jolla. She plans to continue with eFoodAlert and has another book idea in mind — possibly a mystery or a thriller involving evil microbes.

Beware of spies bringing ‘Blood and Gifts’ in Playhouse drama By Katherine Poythress Billed as “part spy thriller, part black comedy,” “Blood and Gifts” by American playwright J.T. Rogers will make its West Coast premiere at the La Jolla Playhouse, June 12-July 8. Directed by Lucie Tiberghien, the play takes audiences on a journey beyond the political headlines of the official Soviet-Afghan war that lasted from 1981 to 1991, and into the secret spy war behind it. At its heart, the play is also about the political seeds that were sown for the infamous Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on American soil, said Playhouse Resident Dramaturg Shirley Fishman. Both political and personal, the theatrical historic fiction follows CIA operative James Warnock (played by Kelly AuCoin) as he deals with his British and Russian counterparts while trying to shut down Soviet control of Afghanistan. In the process, it reveals the sacrifices made by spies like him to protect American interests in the war. “It tells the toll that these kind of covert actions take on relationships and the people making them, and it’s all played out against the backdrop of this very heated, political war that’s going on in a foreign country,” Fishman explained. The story takes place in a variety of cultural settings — from Afghanistan and Soviet Russia to 1980s-era Washington, D.C. — providing the creative team with plenty of opportunities to delight audiences with cul-

Courtesy turally and historically accurate costumes and sounds. Fishman said her favorite part about “Blood and Gifts” is that it operates on so many different levels. The script is gripping, with a balance of sharp humor and crisp dialogue. That, mixed with metaphors of gifts and games, provides for a thoughtprovoking story.

“Although it’s a political flashpoint over the course of 10 years, it’s also very entertaining,” she said. Rogers is one of the few American playwrights still writing about politics, and “Blood and Gifts” is his first work to debut at the La Jolla Playhouse, Fishman said, but it continues the Playhouse’s long history of dealing with politics through plays.

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).

Hot Sounds: It’s Summer in the Village By Pat Sherman Though La Jolla is well known for its chamber music and brushes with internationally-renown classical composers, there are just as many opportunities in and around the Village for people to let loose to a live rock, funk or soul band — sans the traffic, crowds and general pandemonium of a trek to downtown San Diego. David Heine, owner of Beaumont’s eatery in Bird Rock, started out with live music one night a week, and watched the demand steadily rise. The venue now offers live music five days a week (including Sunday brunch), which typically begins with acoustic sets from the likes of Simeon Flick and Matt Commerce on Wednesdays and Thursdays, escalating in volume and attitude to weekend acts such as local rock and blues powerhouse, Ladie Dottie and the Diamonds. “It’s a mix,” said Heine of audiences, which include

regular patrons, curious passerby and artists’ fan bases. “The band’s usually setting up through dinner service, so diners want to stay and see what happens,” he said. “They’re intrigued. … If it’s a great band, they just stay for the night and nobody leaves.” Heine recalled a recent performance by local Johnny Cash tribute band Cash’d Out that drew a standing-room only crowd. The band is set to return to Beaumont’s Saturday, July 7, and early reservations are recommended. “They play all over town, but they’d never played in La Jolla,” he said. “We had a line of about 150 people to get in. … It was a little bit out of our box, but it’s all about the fun, the music and the energy — and it was just a perfect night for so many guests.” Heine said he finds inspiration for his lineup in the most unusual places, recalling one Saturday night when a band’s antiquated

thing from Steely Dan and the Beatles to Alice in Chains. “They’re all just guys with daytime job guys who are phenomenal musicians,” Heine said. “They come here about once every four weeks and just blow the roof off.” Gavin Linde, managing partner of Prospect Bar and Grill said live music has also been a huge draw on his outdoor patio overlooking La Jolla Cove. “When you’re in La Jolla and it comes to an oceanfront patio, it’s us, George’s or Eddie V’s,” he said. Being a sports bar gives the establishment a relaxed atmo-

equipment blew a main fuse in the restaurant. Fortunately for Heine, a guest enjoying the show was able to get his electrician down to fix the problem the following morning. In the process of getting the power back on, the electrician mentioned in passing that he had a band, Mia and the Octopuses, and asked if they could play there one night. “It was unequivocally one of the best bands I ever had,” Heine said. Though the female lead singer has since departed, the band still plays as Scratch, an acoustic rock ‘n’ roll trio that covers every-

“San Diego has a lot of young talent,” Linde said. “They set up by the glass railing and they’re a tremendous draw for us. … It’s uniquely La Jolla.” La Jolla High School senior and guitarist Paul Castelluzzo was able to snag his 1960s acid jazz foursome, The Trunks, a steady gig at Il Covo Italian restaurant in on Girard Avenue. The band performs there Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays from 7 to 10 p.m. “It’s a brand new restaurant and it’s got a really cool atmosphere to it,” Castelluzzo said. “We’re just so close to the people that every show is like we’re making new friends. “We’re just trying to bring jazz back,” he added. “It’s pretty dead — especially in San Diego.” Castelluzzo said playing before a live audience can be both cathartic and demanding, forcing the band to be more precise. “It’s like one of the only times I can just really let go,” he said. “It feels really good … (and) It’s fun to watch my band grow as musicians.” The trunks also perform this Saturday, June 9, 1 to 4 p.m. at Cliffhanger Cafe, at the Torrey Pines Gliderport. For more great live music, don’t miss the La Jolla Village Merchants Association’s inaugural Haute La Jolla Nights event, this Saturday, June 9 (see story, page A16).

From Music, B1 last 20 years.” Among the featured artists at this year’s festival are idiosyncratic composer Judd Greenstein from New York, the L.A.-based Formalist Quartet and UCSD’s own Mark Dresser, a composer and bassist operating on the intrepid fringe of jazz. “I’m trying to deal with articulating an idea every day and trying to say something that has meaning to me, musically and emotionally,” said Dresser, who will perform with Adler’s NOISE ensemble in addition to solo improvisations at the festival. “I consider myself as embracing the broadest view of the jazz traditions, where all of the traditions are grist for the mill, including inspirations and per-

sonalities and other disciplines.” Since 2007, Dresser has been involved in telematic music – computer-driven telecommunication that allows artists to play together in different geographical locations. “I feel a deep connection with this process,” he said. “This potential has never existed before in music, and it’s a privilege to be at the cutting edge of a form, of the investigation of a medium. You have to extend yourself, extend all your perceptions.” The extension of perceptions is at the heart of the soundON Festival of Modern Music. “Each piece is different,” said NOISE’s Adler. “There are certainly pieces that are like chamber music. But there’s a tremendous variety, pieces where there is

extreme technical precision required. So we’re thinking much less about emotion and much more about mechanistic precision. There are musicians who don’t want to do the same thing over and over again.” Yet don’t be intimidated. “Most of the people who come (to the festival) know it’s going to be something out of the mainstream,” Adler said. “But part of what we’re doing is programming works that are not intensely obtuse. When we’re talking, for example, about soundscape pieces, they’re actually very beautiful, sort of film-score material. They can be very accessible.” Dresser perhaps puts it most succinctly. “For me,” he said, “it’s really all music.”

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 www.tacforeclosures.com/ sales using the file number 12-01054 assigned to this case.

Oceanfront home sales indicate stronger La Jolla luxury market Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage announced the sale of the first oceanfront (and at the time, the highest priced home) to sell in La Jolla this year at $5.45 million, according to the San Diego Multiple Listing Service (MLS).

Public records indicate that the 4-bedroom, 7.5 bathrooms home, located at 5204 Chelsea St., was purchased by Heath A. Carr, chief executive officer of Fibrwrap Construction, LP. “There is no doubt that this sale is indicative of a more positive outlook in the residential real estate market, and particularly on the luxury front,” said Rick Hoffman, president and CEO of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in San Diego and Temecula Valley, who is predicting a pick-up in sales throughout 2012. According to listing agent Irene Kuster McCann, the 6,733-square-foot, custombuilt home boasts 90-feet of ocean frontage, helping lend to its moniker, which is trans-

lated “House by the Sea.” La Jolla architect Mark Lyon supplied some of the home’s finishing touches, which include a spacious backyard patio and a large balcony offering views of the entire coastline south to Point Loma. The home also features expansive windows and French doors in each room yielding spectacular ocean vistas. Located in the historic Bird Rock neighborhood of La Jolla, the property was named the 2011 “Holiday House” by the San Diego Association of REALTORS®, and served as a venue for events promoting charitable efforts during the holiday season. Nearly $10,000 in donations and monetary gifts were collected in the

annual event and benefitted multiple charities that assisted San Diego’s children, military families, homeless and senior citizens with a variety of toys, household items and more. As the company behind these remarkable oceanfront listings and sales, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage has been involved with the home sales and purchases of some of the country’s most luxurious properties. For more information regarding the record-setting San Diego County sale and other luxury listings by the Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage La Jolla, please contact branch manager, Jeffrey Nunn at (858) 602-8880 or by email at jeff.nunn@ camoves.com.

Social media coordinator boosts Coldwell Banker’s online presence By Marti Gacioch With the hiring of Travis Cass as new Marketing & Social Media Coordinator, La Jolla’s Coldwell Banker instantly boosted its online presence while providing its 90 agents with a state-of-theart service. “We hired Travis to provide assistance to all of our sales associates in launching their social media marketing efforts, whether that be on Facebook, Travis LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube or Cass whatever,” said Jeff Nunn, Coldwell Banker Branch Manager. According to Nunn, Coldwell Banker became the first broker in La Jolla to offer this kind of free, full-time assistance to its sales

force. Nunn said that for a long time, he’d been looking for someone in the social media generation to serve as his coordinator and Cass was the perfect job match. “Travis is a 26-year-old college graduate who grew up in social media and he’s turned out to be absolutely perfect for this job,” Nunn said. Cass earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in communication and marketing from the State University of New York at Geneseo in 2008. He served as marketing coordinator for a property management company in New York before moving to San Diego last year. “I’ve really fallen in love with real estate and the unique challenges that each day presents, so I’m looking forward to growing within the Coldwell Banker family,” Cass said. “I think as this industry moves increasingly toward things like video, social media and mobile, my own opportunities will continue to grow. With technology, everything evolves on a near-daily basis. I’m really excited to see what tomorrow holds.”

By Marti Gacioch With their recent sale of a $7,050,000 home, Prudential California Realty agents Susana Corrigan and her sister Patty Cohen have proof positive that the La Jolla real estate market is on an upswing. On May 24, the sister-team said they closed escrow on their listing of an oceanfront French chateaustyle property featuring dazzling panoramic views at 5824 Camino de la Costa. The residence boasts four bedrooms (two of which are masters), 7.5 bathrooms, an elevator, office, wood-paneled library, and a courtyard with a pool. Susana Corrigan (left) and Patty Cohen According to Corrigan, this home sale to an out-of-state buyer, marks the highest priced home sold in La Jolla for 2012 so far. Corrigan has been in the real estate business for 30 years, and her sister Patty teamed up with her 10 years ago. Corrigan and Cohen, working together, were the number one producing agents in La Jolla in 2011. They are also the top-producing agents in Prudential’s La Jolla office for the first quarter of 2012. “La Jolla real estate is definitely getting better the past couple of months,” Corrigan said. Helsel La Jolla Light Ad.pdf 4/23/2012 2:05:14 PM “There is Chuck actually a shortage of inventory in La Jolla today.” Reach Susana Corrigan and Patty Cohen at their offices at 1299 Prospect St. (858) 551- 3359. www.lajollaresidential.com
