A SIGN FOR THE SENIORS Light reader Rich Rinaldi sent in this photo of a street sign that was put up in front Casa de Mañana at the corner of Eads Avenue and South Coast Boulevard. He said he doesn’t “know who put it up but it has caused a bit of hilarity with people stopping by to take pictures. I do know that people speed past this intersection and the senior citizens are concerned.”

He said he asked several of the seniors if the sign offended anyone and “they all said heavens no, they thought it was funny and if it slowed down the speeders great. “Unfortunately,” he added, “the city took it down several days after it went up. Too bad the city doesn’t have a sense of humor. In any case we enjoyed the sign while it was up.”

Fireworks likely as reprieve granted, money comes in BY JAMES R. RIFFEL City News Service La Jolla’s Fourth of July show is a go. That is, if residents can finish donating the estimated $28,000 needed to stage the event. Superior Court Judge Linda Quinn, who recently ordered the city of San Diego to follow state environmental laws when issuing permits for fireworks shows and other special events, last week stayed enforcement of her ruling until Aug. 31. Quinn’s stay means the Independence Day show will go on as scheduled this year. “The show must go on — thank you Judge Quinn for giving us a 90-day stay,” said an elated Deborah Marengo, spokeswoman for La Jolla Community Fireworks Foundation, the nonprofit sponsoring the annual Independence Day event. Marengo, who had $23,500 pledged on Tuesday, noted


Eddie V’s gearing up for late July opening BY DAVE SCHWAB Eyeing a July 25 grand opening, Eddie V’s is entering the home stretch in constructing its new stateof-the-art, steak-seafood restaurant on the former Chart House site. Acquisition and reinventing of the old Chart House proved challenging, said Guy Villavaso, founder/owner of the restaurant chain. “We met with Don Allison (landlord) more than two years ago and looked at the site like many suitors after us,” he said, noting timing was bad then at the start of the recession and the cost of rebuilding seemed daunting too. Villavaso credited Allison with paving the way for the lease deal to be struck.

“He took it upon himself to go through the Coastal Commission and get all the city permits processed, and it was our good fortune to be there at the right time,” he said. With two decks and breathtaking views overlooking La Jolla Cove, Eddie V’s will offer a diverse menu of seafood and steaks, along with a sunset happy hour and brunch, inspired by the great classic seafood restaurants of New Orleans, San Francisco and Boston. It is the newest establishment for the 14-unit Scottsdale, Ariz.-based chain. The remodel was the first (in 1948) and last project for renowned 90-year-old La Jolla architect Robert Mosher, whose family

Bird Rock’s George Sutton dies in explosion By Kathy Day Bird Rock resident George Sutton III, 47, who was killed June 1 in an explosion while preparing off-road equipment for a trip to the desert, was remembered Monday during a private celebration of life. He had served as a board member on La Jolla’s Traffic & Transportation Committee since 2006 and as secretary and vice president of the Bird Rock Community Council (2007-2008) and as a BRCC board member. Joe LaCava, former president of the Bird Rock Community Council and La Jolla Community Planning Association, said, “George was an avid fan of the desert and had a collection of toys to enjoy off-roading. He was a classy and gentle soul that always had a smile and a positive attitude.” A resident of Bird Rock since 1998, he was president of George Sutton & Associates Pulmonary Data Systems Inc., both of which are involved in the medical device industry. He is survived by his wife

Ruth and their two sons, Ryan and Colin; mother Gladys and her husband Cy Moyer.; sister Jeannette Prochazka and brother-in-law Bill Prochazka, and in-law Joe and Josephine DeCastro. His son, Ryan, recently won a photo contest sponsored by the La Jolla Historical Society. The accident occurred at a Kearny Mesa recreational-vehicle storage lot, LaCava said. According to City News Service, a fire broke out inside a box trailer in the 5700 block of Copley Park Place shortly after 10:30 a.m., according to the San Diego

Fire-Rescue Department. By the time crews arrived, the 20-foot trailer was fully engulfed, and a motor home next to it was also burning, SDFRD spokesman Maurice Luque said. Firefighters had to lay about 900 feet of hose to get water from the closest hydrant in the area. It then took them about five minutes to subdue the flames, after which the body was found, according to Luque. Investigators determined that the fire, which also damaged a second motor home and a cabin cruiserstyle boat being stored at the lot, began when some type of flammable vapors were sparked by an unknown ignition source, Luque said. The fumes may have been related to motorcycle repair work Sutton was doing inside the trailer in recent days in preparation for a trip, the spokesman said. The monetary losses were set at $200,000 to the vehicles and $100,000 to contents. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to or the Atwood, Kansas Second Century Fund.

Math teacher helps Gillispie sixth graders look toward future By Jeanie Scott The Gillispie School’s grade 6 math specialist and middle school admissions coordinator, Susan Adams, often uses interactive tools —pop culture facts and board games — to help her students learn math. Eleven years ago, she developed another interactive program to help her students imagine the future. Prior to the end of each school year, Adams sits down with the sixth graders and asks them to write a letter to themselves. The completed letters are sealed, held by Adams for five years, and mailed back to the students during the summer prior to their senior year of high school. To outline the assignment, Adams asks the students to predict what their lives will be like as a high school senior. While some write about cars, clothes and friends, others write about academic goals and college dreams. To frame the second half of the letter, she encourages the youngsteres to capture important memories from their time at Gillispie answering questions such as: Who are your friends? What are your proudest accomplishments? What are your favorite things to do? For many students, these letters become treasured keepsakes of their years at Gillispie. This has been especially true for sisters Naomi and Olivia Wagner. Older sister Naomi graduated from Grade 6 in 2003 after spending nine years in the school’s early childhood and elementary programs. In

the fall of 2003, the Wagner home was destroyed by a wildfire and all of the girls’ possessions were lost. Five years later, Naomi was set to enter her senior year at The Bishop’s School when the Grade 6 letter arrived. While almost nothing tangible remained from her Gillispie years, the letter helped her recall her hopes, friends and goals. She said she remembered the day Adams assigned the letter-writing project. The letter also reminded her that Adams had gone to great lengths following the fire to help the Wagner family gather photos of the girls’ days at Gillispie after the fire. Naomi has since graduated from Bishop’s and will begin her junior year at Pomona College next fall.

Seal rope comes down after judge’s ruling stituted an “encroachment” into the public right of way denying public access to the beach and pool. “There’s been harassment even with the rope barrier,” argued attorney Bryan Pease representing the APRL in court. “Without the rope barrier, there will be a constant barrage of harassment we’ve seen year after year.” “I know you disagree but there’s been no harm proven to the animals when that rope barrier has not been up,” replied Foster. The June 3 Superior Court action did not conclude the ongoing, seesawing legal battle over whether harbor seals need protection during and beyond the marine mammals’ pupping season or whether the rope — though a more symbolic barrier than physical —constitutes an “encroachment” on the public’s right to beach access. Foster set a July 15 court date at which time both sides in the Children’s Pool case will return to plead their case. In a separate but related matter, the La Jolla planning group voted overwhelmingly 11-1-2 and 12-1-1 on June 2 to oppose planning actions and permitting being initiated by the city to completely close the beach during the seals’ pupping season.

COMPLIMENTARY SEMINAR Dr. Lisa Petronis, LMFT - Clinical Director


By dave SChwaB Staff Writer The rope barrier separating humans from harbor seals at La Jolla’s Children’s Pool was removed Saturday, a day after Superior Court Judge Lisa Foster lifted a restraining order keeping it from being taken down as scheduled on May 15. In rendering her decision, Foster noted her legal jurisdiction is limited. “I am constrained — the restraining order will expire today,” she said Friday afternoon. Foster noted the plaintiff, the Animal Protection and Rescue League (APRL), has yet to prove its case that the city Planning Commission decision in January to have the rope up only during pupping season is flawed. The La Jolla Community Planning Association had appealed the City Council’s prior decision that the rope should be up yearround in perpetuity to protect the marine mammals. The guideline rope barrier has traditionally been up to protect seal mothers and their pups during the marine mammals’ pupping season Dec. 15 to May 15. Foster said she could not yet find that the Planning Commission abused its discretion in determining that the guideline rope barrier con-

The advisory group’s vote came after public comment during which more than a dozen people who want the beach open at all times testified. They warned that closing the beach even part-time would endanger divers, threaten the public’s guaranteed right to beach access and open the city up to future costly lawsuits by those seeking to overturn any prohibition to beach access.

A bench at La Jolla High (far left) urged freedom for Iran before it was painted over. COURTESY BY DAVE SCHWAB Staff Writer Superior Court Judge Jeffrey Barton heard arguments last week about whether three senior benches at La Jolla High School should be allowed to be used for free speech of any sort and not restricted to school-related-only matters. But he delayed his decision until June 24. The hearing was the first in a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) against LJHS Principal Dana Shelburne and the San Diego Unified School District on behalf of graduating La Jolla High senior Yumehiko Hoshijima. The suit seeks a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction against the prohibition requiring language painted on benches to be “positive,” arguing that is unconstitutionally “vague.” The bench controversy stems back to a Feb. 15 incident in which school officials painted out messages urging support for freedom in Iran that had been

put there by Iranian-American students. The messages, painted by members of the school’s Persian Club, were covered in white paint after Shelburne deemed them to be inappropriate for the benches. A couple of days later other students painted a similar but slightly different message on the benches: “Freedom for Iran and LJHS,” which, too, was whitedout. Late last week, the controversy flared up again when Shelburne said he planned to have the benches removed. Supt. Bill Kowba blocked the move shortly after it became public. On Thursday, Judge Barton, citing his desire to “make a correct decision,” noted more time was needed to digest the school district’s submittal just before the hearing of Shelburne’s three-page declaration and a two-page memorandum. The documents respond to the ACLU contention that the school’s policies “unconstitutionally discriminate against protected student speech based on content or viewpoint.”

Shelburne has said the senior benches are reserved for school-only issues and that a bulletin board near the benches has been set aside as an open forum for non-school-related student expression. “This is a free speech case,” argued David Blair-Loy, legal director at the San Diego ACLU. “The benches have been dedicated to student speech for decades.” Noting the three benches in question have been reserved only for “positive messages about the school,” Blair-Loy said, “That is unjust, invalid and void. That rule is — and has always been — unlawful and unenforceable. The school can’t have benches and bulletin boards segregating speech between them.” Lawrence Schoenke, the district’s general counsel, in defending Shelburne said, “He understands very clearly that he needs to be protective of free speech and the First Amendment. It is not his intent to suppress anyone. But his primary mission is to teach students. What he’s trying to do is run a high school — and he’s trying to do it appropriately.”

She paid the new $1,500 permit fee required by the San Diego Water Quality Control Board, and has until June 10 to come up with the rest of the money needed to sign a contract with the pyrotechnic company staging the Independence Day show. “We’ll see where we are on Friday,” Marengo said. “This is great news for the thousands of San Diegans who plan to mark this Independence Day with a beautiful La Jolla fireworks show,” said the mayor’s office in a prepared statement following Quinn’s decision. “The idea that a once-a-year fireworks display poses a threat to the environment defies both basic common sense and scientific evidence.” Robert Howard, an attorney representing the La Jolla Community Fireworks Foundation, said he was “relieved, thrilled and appreciative” of the court’s ruling, noting “it gives the city time to address the judge’s concerns and (the Foundation) time to assess the complications of the new reality” of increased environmental fireworks regulations. Quinn’s decision stems from a lawsuit against the city and the organizers of the July 4 fireworks display at La Jolla Cove filed by environmental lawyer Marco Gonzalez. He represents the Coastal Environmental Rights Foundation, which contends debris from the airborne explosions harms sea life at a nearby marine sanctuary. Gonzalez said he found the stay to be “troubling” because the judge indicated early in a Thursday court hearing that she opposed the idea of holding off enforcement of the ruling and did not give any reason for her change of heart in the written ruling she issued. “While we’re of course not happy with the court’s ruling, we understand the immense pressure the city and fireworks organizers have created by delaying these proceedings so long and by dragging in all of the other events that could be possibly impacted by the ruling,” Gonzalez said. “But in the end, what’s most important is that regardless of whether the La Jolla fireworks happen this year, there will be significant changes in the way the city

handles these events going forward, and that has been our goal all along,” he said. Organizers of the pyrotechnics displays say that since their costs are nearly too high already, they would not be able to afford the added expense of filing envi-

ronmental reports. Attorneys for the city argued that Parks and Recreation Department employees issue thousands of permits annually and cannot take on the additional burden of processing the reports. Quinn’s original decision on May 27 was based on the city’s municipal code, not the environmental issues. In her written ruling issuing the stay, she also ordered the city to return to court on Aug. 31 to update her on options it had to comply. — Light staff writer Dave Schwab contributed to this story.

Council restores budget cuts CIty NEWS SERvICE All eight fire engines taken out of service earlier this year to save money will be back in rotation as of July 1, and libraries and rec centers will continue operating under normal hours, under a budget passed Monday by the San Diego City Council on a 7-1 vote. Mayor Jerry Sanders still needs to approve the $2.75 billion spending plan but he previously indicated he had no intention of using his veto power. A top priority of the council was restoring the fire engines that were pulled out of service on a rotating basis to save $11.5 million, increasing the Fire-Rescue Department’s response times as a result.

Library hours were cut in half in the mayor’s initial proposal, and when more money became available, he suggested one branch in each district could be restored to full service. Now, all branches will remain open 36 hours per week. A combination of additional revenues and higher-than-expected reserves are being used to pay for the restorations. The council was also able to save receretion center hours and swimming and water polo programs; keep municipal pools open; add two lifeguard positions — allowing for a resumption of hands-on training; and an extra city auditor’s job. ■ More online at

Treating Office Work Pain Athletes are not the only ones who turn to physical therapists for treatment. The fact is that office workers also suffer neck and shoulder pain caused by repetitive office tasks and computer work. Fortunately, strength exercises have proven to be successful in treating chronic or frequent pain in the neck area, as well as tightness and tenderness of the upper trapezius muscle (the large muscle that extends from the back of the head, down the neck, and into the upper back). Much of the neck pain is often due to decreased strength, joint dysfunction, poor postural control and improper mechanics in the upper back as well as the neck. It is important to create good ergonomics in the office setting and perform exercises and stretches specific to correcting postural mechanics and improving strength. The therapists at Ability Rehab are specialists in treating neck pain associated with improper postural and joint mechanics, decreased muscle strength and poor office ergonomics. Our therapists will conduct a thorough evaluation to assess muscle strength, range of motion, joint and postural mechanics, and provide education on possible office space adjustments. Ability Rehab’s therapists then create a comprehensive plan of physical therapy treatment tailored to your specific needs. P.S. Each treatment plan includes an individualized exercise program complete with pictures.

FROM WHALES, A1 gray whale is located near the town of Guerrero Negro, in an extensive Baja lagoon averaging 7 miles wide more than 27 miles inland. About 350 miles south of San Diego, the lagoon was named for whaling Capt. Charles M. Scammon who “discovered” it in 1857, though it was known earlier to Spanish and Mexican explorers. Scammon at first decided to exterminate the whales before realizing his mistake, then dedicated his life to saving them, according to Wikipedia. Gray whales congregate in this lagoon during winter to mate, give birth and let their calves grow enough to withstand the long north migration. Up to 2,000 whales and their calves can be found in the lagoon during the peak of the season. Terry Kraszewski, a La Jolla Shores surf boutique owner

who went on the trip, said, “I just felt so connected to them (whales) and the ocean.” The experience was especially poignant for La Jolla community activist Mary Coakley, who was in the midst of a project to create a life-sized bronze sculpture of J.J., the Orphaned Baby

Gray Whale rescued by Sea World which now rests in Kellogg Park playground in La Jolla Shores. “I don’t even know how to describe it,” said Coakley. “This gave J.J. such a real dimension. I don’t want to say it was a once-in-a-lifetime trip because I want to go back next year.” Kraszewski, an avowed whale lover, said the opportunity to connect with such awe-inspiring creatures was precious. “The trust you saw, they kept coming to us time and again to let us touch them and to look in their eyes … They’re so powerful and so big, the size of a city bus … All we could do was grin and cry and hug afterward.”

BY KATHY DAY City crews were expected on Wednesday to finishing repairing West Muirlands Drive where a 60-foot section of sewer pipe that contributed to the collapse of a section of the road last week. Neighbors, including Adelle Owen, first reported a problem with the street several months ago after the heavy rains. They noticed that cars were hitting the growing dip at an increasing rate and when crews came out to inspect, they put a camera below the surface to see what was going on and found a sewer line to the west was collapsing, she said on June 2. The 60-foot section of 24-inch corrugated metal pipe is the same kind that has caused problems for municipalities around the country, said Bill Harris, spokesman for the city’s storm water division. Banned in 1992, it erodes from the inside out and then fails, he said. He said Monday that the repairs were taking longer than anticipated because the pipe was much deeper than anticipated and the line crossed other utilities. As a result, they had to pour concrete 16 feet below the surface to hold it up. Only residents were allowed access pending the resurfacing of the street and the time allowed for the new concrete to cure, Harris said. This isn’t the first problem along the winding road that has become a shortcut from Faye Avenue to Nautilus Street for local traffic as well as large construction trucks, met about a couple of weeks ago to talk about speeders and traffic volume as they try to figure out how to get the city’s

attention about problems along the street near Muirlands Middle School. Owen said that she wasn’t surprised when the street in front of her neighbor’s house on June 2. In fact, she said, neighbors have been waiting for it to happen. About a month and a half ago after their initial call about the developing dip in front of her house, city workers patched the spot and told residents they’d be back as soon as they could to fix the pipe, she said. That wasn’t soon enough. At 11:45 a.m. last Thursday morning, she said, a parking control officer was coming down the street and reported the growing dip. They both watched as a woman drover her Prius over the spot and saw it drag its undercarriage, leaving marks in the pavement. Within 15 minutes, the spot had sunk another 5 inches, Owen said. At about 3:40 the city’s stormwater department’s emergency department got a call and sent a supervisor out to stand by until contracted workers could cover the spot. Owen said she has photos documenting the cave-in, which broke through sometime after 5 p.m.

Safety issues prompt fines at area hospitals City News serviCe Scripps Memorial Hospital, Scripps Encinitas and three other hospitals in San Diego County were assessed penalties Thursday by the California Department of Public Health for failing to follow policies that ensure patient safety. The CDPH announced they were among 12 medical centers around the state that were cited. In the Scripps Memorial Hospital case, the hospital was was fined $75,000 for leaving a 28-

inch guide wire for a medical device inside an 82-year-old patient’s right femoral artery for 29 days in April and May of 2009. Scripps Encinitas Medical Center was fined $50,000 for leaving a piece of medical equipment inside the abdomen of a 66-year-old woman who underwent surgery on April 16, 2010. She had to have a second operation to remove the device. ScrippsHealth officials issued the following response: “Scripps

believes strongly in doing everything we can to ensure the safety of our patients. In 2009 and 2010, we discovered and self-reported to the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) the unfortunate incidents that resulted in the penalties mentioned in the CDPH’s statement today.” It said La Jolla incident “involved a retained angioplasty guide wire, which was discovered during a follow-up procedure and uneventfully removed.”

The statement also said Scripps “self-reported both incidents, and notified the patient and their families. “In both cases, the patient was unharmed. We have put in place changes in our processes to prevent events such as these from occurring in the future.” Other hospitals fined were Palomar Medical Center, Pomerado Hospital and Sharp Memorial Hospital. The facilities can appeal within 10 days.

Steve wapnowski, who delivered mail on the same route in La Jolla Shores for 23 years, is honored by residents. Dave Schwab PhotoS

La Jolla Shores residents salute mail carrier By Dave SchwaB La Jolla mail carrier Steve Wapnowski’s last day on his La Jolla Shores route after 23 years became one to remember when about 50 people showed upto honor him. Marilyn Olson organized the luncheon that was held in the cul de sac at Calle De La Garza. One of the many people who turned out for the occasion was Pat Miller, a member of the La Jolla Park and Recreation Inc., board. She called it a special occasion to honor a special person. “He’s just a really nice man,” Miller said. “He was one of those guys that was always interested in us and our families and we were interested in his. We felt like we knew them.” Wapnowski’s wife, Vicki, and daughter, Cori McKenna, also were there for Steve’s last day of work. Cori, a graduate of UCLA Film School who is an independent contractor in New York working on a television documentary, videotaped the event.

La Jolla Shores residents pay tribute to Steve wapnowski. On Monday, his first day of retirement, Wapnowski said he was “overwhelmed by the reception” he got. “It was such a wonderful gesture,” he said. “It confirms what I had felt all along — that they had accepted me in the neighborhood as a friend.” Wapnowski said he and his wife will be traveling to New York to visit their daughter soon and then will return to San Diego to outfit their motor home. “We’re going to try and do a nice trip around the country to see all the places we’ve watched on the Travel Channel,” he said. FROM EDDIE V’s, A1 owned the restaurant property at 1270 Prospect St. from 1944 until it was purchased by Allison-Zongker in 1992. In redefining the restaurant site, Mosher maximized window space in the building to create “views clear through to the street,” allowing passersby on the sidewalk to look through and see the ocean: The only place on Prospect Street where that’s possible. The new Eddie V’s is a homecoming for firm president/CEO Jim VanDercook, previously a La Jollan who was married at Mary Star of the Sea Catholic Church and was a patron of the Chart House. “We’re excited about recreating that wonderful restaurant, capturing the views

LA JOLLA LIGHT - JUNE 9, 2011 - Page a13

with all the windows popping up along the entire dining room,” he said. “It’s such a beautiful spot and we’ve kept the fireplace, which is historic, to have for cozy nights in the winter.” VanDercook said Eddie V’s is dialed in to fresh seafood including oysters, and prime, center-cut steak. He said his new restaurant would complement the existing Village restaurant mix. “We’re concerned about making it a vibrant part of La Jolla,” he said noting the high-end restaurants in the area all have divergent menus and styles. “We hope to bring in business, create some excitement and energy for Prospect Street,” VanDercook said, adding Eddie V’s “wants to be a part of the community.”

“It’s the Jewel,” he said. “We’re glad to get a restaurant here.” A press release about the restaurant’s executive chef, Bill Greenwood, says “he has immersed himself in the various nuances of the restaurant industry. He spent several years studying artisanal baking with acclaimed bakers and committed to non-paying jobs to learn how to best butcher meat and fish. It also notes he has received positive press for focusing on local California ingredients and the applica-

tion of modern American culinary techniques to traditional dishes. Also recently hired is Ronald B. Fabor, the new general manager. He has more than 30 years of experience in the hospitality and restaurant industries, including general manager at Claim Jumper. He also served as personal butler and chauffeur to the Princess of Thailand for all of her visits to San Diego.

Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa seeks a buyer By Kathy Day A second significant La Jolla property hit the market on Wednesday — the Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa, which sits on university-owned land across from the UCSD campus. Jones Lang LaSalle Hotels announced it would market the property “unencumbered of both brand and management” on behalf of an affiliate of Lowe Enterprises (Lowe). The Los Angeles-based real estate firm’s Destination Hotels & Resorts has operated the hotel on a long-term ground lease with UCSD since it opened in 2004. Developed by Lowe, it includes 210 rooms, three restaurants and lounges, the 8,000-square-foot

Spa at Estancia, and more than 21,000 square feet of meeting space. Estancia joins the Top of the Cove restaurant in seeking a buyer. Mike Slattery of Grubb & Ellis|BRE Commercial has the $7.5 million listing for the Prospect Street property. It is also the second La Jolla hotel to go on the market in the past year, although the first — the La Valencia — was a result of the owner’s health and not so much a factor of the market, said Bob Rauch, a hospitality and management consultant well versed in the San Diego marketplace who also is a hotel owner and operator. Interviewed on Wednesday, he said he was “not surprised that

(Estancia) is for sale, only that it is being listed with a broker.” Generally, he said, hotel operators will keep word that a hotel is for sale quiet because “it is hard on the employees.” He said there is currently “a lot of interest among real estate investment trusts (REITs) who feel like it is a good time to get a hotel.” In recent months, investors have purchased the Manchester Grand Hyatt, the Hilton Bayfront and the downtown Se Hotel, he said. Lowe Enterprises, he added, is a “sophisticated owner/operator with great knowledge of the market. … I’m sure this is not a fire sale, but a strategic sale.” Its Destination Hotels group has a portfolio of luxury and up-

The Riford Goes to Paris and The Dordogne

scale properties, many of them on the coast or in other resort destinations, including the L’Auberge Del Mar and Paradise Point Resort & Spa in San Diego as well as in ski resort areas, desert and golf resorts, and major cities like New York and Washington, D.C. Estancia has been recognized as a AAA Four-Diamond hotel and was on the Conde Nast Traveler “Hot List” of best new hotels in the world in 2005-2006. In a press release announcing that Jones Lang LaSalle Hotels will be handling the sale, John Strauss, a managing director with the firm, said, “Estancia La Jolla offers a new owner the opportunity to acquire one of the newest coastal California resorts in an

excellent, high barrier-to-entry location. The unencumbered nature of the offering will afford a new owner a great deal of flexibility in determining its operating plan for the property.” Rauch said he believes buyers and sellers are seeing a positive change in the market, a factor also noted in the press release from Jones Lang LaSalle. Although Rauch said local hotel occupancies “hit bottom” in the first half of 2010, the second half of last year showed improvement and every month this year has been better. “We’ll have a good run in the next five years,” he said, noting that the forecasts are encouraging sellers to “cash out” and buyers to step up to the plate.

Extreme Pizza builds distinctive blends If your tastes run toward the extraordinary in pizza, then Extreme Pizza at 834 Kline St. in the Village of La Jolla is your place. Inspired by extreme sports, the pizza franchise, which began in San Francisco, is gaining a secure foothold in the Jewel and throughout San Diego County. La Jolla Extreme Pizza owner Kevin Smith, who cut his teeth working for the In-NOut Burger franchise, said the franchise, like the pizzas he serves, are a distinctive blend of ingredients. “We’re taking pizza to an extreme with more than 50 different toppings that we use to create our 19 signature pizzas with our crazy names,” Smith said. One example he offered was Pandora’s Box, a vegetarian’s delight topped with baby spinach, artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, feta cheese, garlic, basil and oregano. Other novel pies include Peace in the Middle East, fea-

turing homemade hummus, and Wingin’ It, with chicken marinated in buffalo wing sauce. Smith said his pizza shop reaches beyond the Village, up to Torrey Pines and south to Bird Rock and North Pacific Beach. They also deliver to Mount Soledad, UTC and University City. Extreme Pizza delivers, as well as catering pizza, subs, calzones, cookies and more for parties and special events. “We’ve provided pizzas to the Birch Aquarium, the (La Jolla) Rec Center, churches, schools, etc.,” Smith said. “We work with local charities, donating 10 percent of sales back to the organization with fliers.” Another thing distinguishing Extreme Pizza is “cake and bakes.” “Call or come in choosing one of our signature pizzas and we’ll make the pizza and put it on a special tray and you can pick it up and take it home and bake it later,” said

Extreme Pizza is at 834 Kline St. Courtesy Smith. Smith invites people to come into his shop and see the photos he has up on his wall of people, like himself, doing extreme sports such as extreme skiing and extreme snowboarding, scuba diving, big-wave surfing in Hawaii or shark or sky diving. Restaurant hours are 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday. For more information call (858) 729-1910 or visit www.

‘Party’ at Children’s Pool a wrong step Our View A little over a week ago, a group of people organized what they called a “celebratory” event to mark the 80th anniversary of the Children’s Pool — a nice idea that went too far. They gathered at the beach — on the seals’ side of the rope barrier that’s supposed to guide people away from the marine mammals. Then they parked their chairs, lit their barbecues and partied for several hours. One of them, pointing out that they are not anti-seal, called the evening “just magic … the seals came up and snuggled up around

our feet. Not one seal flushed.” On another occasion, one of our staff watched as a diver walked down the beach into the water, scaring the seals into the water. But the diver didn’t go in the water. After the seals swam away, he turned around and laughed all the way back to the place where his friends had set up their awning. We’ve complained about the proseal folks who yell at beachgoers and we’ve wondered why the tables clutter up the otherwise scenic Coast Boulevard sidewalk. Now, it’s time to say the beachaccess crowd has — literally — overstepped the boundary. If they’re trying to force the City Council to call for closing the

Imagine a world where parents send their young children out of the house to play without first teaching them safety rules, such as how to look both ways before crossing a street and not to talk to strangers. Inconceivable, right? That is what is happening in homes every day when parents allow children unsupervised and unrestricted access to the Internet, according to Chuck Arnold, a police sergeant on the city of San Diego’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. At a talk on May 31 at Muirlands Middle School, Arnold urged parents to take a more active role in their kids’ lives — especially online. He shared the three things that parents ought to be doing to keep kids safe in the cyber world: (1) keep current about what is happening in cyberspace, (2) keep checking what kids are doing, and (3) keep communicating. Arnold, a 30-year veteran of the police force, is full of stories that would terrify a parent. Vulnerable teens who are befriended by what they think is another teen, only to learn later it is an adult looking for sexual gratification. Teen-age boys who mistakenly upload the entire contents of their family computer (includ-

ing tax returns) on a file-sharing site. Kids who bully others online. Kids who learn about multipartner sex and how to build weapons through YouTube videos. Young girls who are humiliated when their provocative photos go viral. He said the most important thing parents can do is talk to their child about Internet safety. He said that parents should set family rules and expectations as well as consequences for broken rules. Parents should decide how much and what time of day their kids can spend online and the sites they can visit. He also urged parents to keep tight control of digital devices. Put the computer in a public place. Check the kids’ browser history, profiles and buddy lists. Have the cell phone be charged in the parents’ bedroom (so the parent can read the texts and emails and make sure the teen isn’t texting all night). Turn off the Wi-Fi at night. “Is a phone a God-given right?” he asked. “No! Don’t be afraid to take it away.” The presentation was organized by the La Jolla Cluster Association, at the recommendation of Bird Rock Elementary technology teacher Andrea Flagiello. If you missed the talk, visit, a new initiative of the San Diego Police Foundation.

beach permanently during pupping season or for a year-round rope barrier or to push those who enforce the Marine Mammal Protection Act into action, they need only keep parking their bodies and their barbecues as close as they can to the seals. Both sides have points to make in this never-ending saga, but there are ways to go about getting a message across and having a barbecue on the beach as close to the seals as you can get is not the way. (Nor is screaming at people who want to go into the water or preaching about their position to visitors.) Now, with the rope down until December — or until the court or the city decides it should go back

up — it’s time for the beach-access advocates to think before they act. Their party “to honor” Ellen Browning Scripps for her gift of the breakwater could easily have been held on the high side of the beach. We just don’t understand why they had to disrespect the barrier and hope their actions don’t backfire on them. We hold dear the right of public access to our beaches and take seriously Ellen Browning Scripps gift to La Jolla, however we wonder what these people were thinking. We really don’t want officials to give all of the Children’s Pool to the seals, even for part of the year, but after this we would certainly understand if that is they decision they make.

regular La Jolla visitor offended by gathering COMMuNiTY View By Jillian aBood McLean, Virginia

I’ve been visiting La Jolla in the summertime for the last 20 years. My family and I always enjoy going to see the seals multiple times on our visits here. We arrived (May 31) and the first thing we did was visit the seals. Last night when we arrived at the beach, we saw a group of about 20 people who were grilling and lighting fires near the seals. They had a huge “OPEN” sign that they had planted over the rope that protects the seals’ space, and they were intimidating the seals. When I asked them what they were doing, I received answers such as, “the seals like the fires, it warms them up” and “why should we care about the seals.” One woman called them “the rats of the ocean.” There were human footprints in the sand where

people had walked right past the noses of the seals. The air smelled of fire and it was clearly making the seals very nervous. I know the beach is controversial, but there are miles and miles of beach where these people could enjoy themselves, and they have decided that there is no place for seals and no place for compromise. They see the seals as a cause célèbre, and they were at the beach for the sole purpose of harassing the seals. I found it appalling, and that’s why I’m writing to you. My family and I believe that the beach should be open, but a line should be drawn in the sand and people should leave the seals alone. I’ve walked down there many times to see the seals, but I don’t go near them or bother them. What I saw last night was so upsetting that I have forwarded this letter and my pictures to the City Council members as well.

seals ‘attended’ the celebration COMMuNiTY View david T. JohnSon San Diego resident Friends, If you did not show up for the May 31st celebration of the Children’s Pool 80th anniversary, you missed a real special experience. That gathering was unique because of the seals that attended. Never have we had so many seals, so close. The

seals came up to within inches of our party site but not in the normal triangular formation of the past where one or a few seals were closest. Rather the formation was spread out all along our group, and most seals were completely relaxed within inches to maybe 10 feet of the human celebrants. Those of us who stayed long

Student’s View Editor’s note: Students in Claire Carlyle’s class at All Hallows Academy recently wrote letters for an assignment. Here are two; watch for more.

Protect the Children The seals should not be at The Children’s Pool. The name even backs it up. Children used to learn how to swim there; they made great memories in the water. Now the water is unsafe, contaminated by seal feces. Sure the pups can be adorable, but how about your kids learning to swim for the first time? Jillian The Children’s Pool atKopp tracts tourists, but there are other great places to watch seals along the coast. It would be one thing if it was their only habitat, but it’s not. You do not have to hurt them to make them go away. The scientists at Sea World could find a way to encourage the seals off of the beach. It is important for La Jolla to protect The Children’s Pool and the children who swim there. By Jillian Kopp All Hallows Academy Grade 7

Troublesome Trash I would like to see cleaner beaches in La Jolla, especially beaches like La Jolla Shores and Windansea. Trash should be picked up and disposed of because people go there all of the time, especially in the summer. We can get hurt by the trash. For example, a friend of mine got cut by glass when she was walking barefoot in the sand. Trash can also hurt wildlife and their ecosystems. Plastic gets stuck around the necks of sea birds and other creatures which can cause them to be injured or worse. Why should they suffer because people did not put their trash into a Coral trash can where it belongs? Nava I know for a fact that I am going to pick up trash on our beaches because I want them to be safe for people and animals. Don’t you? We just can’t walk past it all of the time thinking, “Somebody else will get it.” It is our responsibility to keep our beaches, communities, and our world clean. It benefits all living things. Now this may sound corny, but together we can make a huge difference. By Coral Nava All Hallows Academy Grade 7

It seems like everyone is going fast but me COMMUNITY View Trent Wagenseller Bird Rock resident

When you approach the mid-century mark (your mid-50s) birthday presents go from cool clothes and sports items to humorous books, cards and CDs on aging, healthy living and memory exercises — well, skipping the body function jokes and memory reminders. One comment from the humorist Dave Barry has stuck with me related to our driving habits: “It seems like everyone is going fast but me!” Last year, the president of

the Bird Rock Community Council, Joe Parker wrote a funny, but serious, view of his immediate neighborhood’s outrageously fast driving habits. Like Joe, and to the occasional dismay of my family, I’m the annoying guy standing in the street waving my arms and yelling at drivers. Another long time Bird Rocker, Portia Wadsworth, wrote and brought the speeders to the mat challenging them to think through their bad (i.e., dangerous driving) habits. Yes, I admit to a bit of foolery and trickery to slow my fellow drivers down because I can — my Sequoia is so large. Intentionally slow-

From Seals, A18 long enough could watch the young seals return from their midnight raiding of the ocean’s refrigerator, so to speak. The young ones scooted around the beach like a bunch of little kids. They bothered some of the adult seals; they teased each other and played around the sand like kids would on a grass lawn. We have been labeled with the term, “seal haters.” We are seal haters like people who disapprove of their neighbor having a double-digit number of cats living in their house

La Jolla native earns Stanford, top student-athlete honors Stanford University will honor Gregory Hirshman this week as its most academically distinguished male student-athlete. Hirshman, who will be recognized at a campus ceremony today, holds a 3.993 GPA — the highest GPA for any Stanford athlete. Gregory Hirshman, a graduating hirshman senior, is a La Jolla Country Day School alum. Hirshman’s Stanford Award follows his national recognition by the NCAA. On May 18, the NCAA honored Hirshman for the second straight year with the Elite 88 Award, naming him the student-athlete of the year for Division 1 Men’s Tennis. To be eligible for this award, a player must earn a

top GPA and reach the final rounds of the NCAA tournament. Hirshman finished the tennis season with a 15-4 record playing for Stanford, the country’s 7th ranked collegiate tennis program. Yet Hirshman’s accomplishments off the court are no less impressive. Hirshman was Stanford’s only student-athlete to major in mathematics — widely considered one of Stanford’s most difficult majors. In addition, to complete his second major in economics, he wrote a 135-page thesis under the direction of famed economist Robert Hall. Hirshman, who graduates from Stanford this Sunday (June 12), will continue his education at the London School of Economics, where he will pursue a master’s degree in finance and private equity.

La Jolla High’s Doyle makes way to state championship La Jolla High School freshman Ben Doyle won the CIF/SCGA Southern California High School Championship with a round of 4-under 68 at Brookside GC’s #1 Course. Doyle won the title in a playoff over La Jolla Country Day’s Anthony Paolucci and Adolfo Camarillo’s Johnny Ruiz, who also shot 68s. Doyle joins a long list of San Diego area greats that have won the championship, a list which includes fellow La Jolla High School star Craig Stadler who won in 1971. Others who have won this title include PGA Tour stand outs Phil Mickelson (1987), Tiger Woods (1991), Chris Riley (1992), Charlie Hoffman (1994 & 1995) and Rickie Fowler (2004). Torrey Pines High School claimed the team title with a team score of 7-over par, 367. The winner’s circle is familiar territory for Torrey Pines, as they won this same title last year (this is their 9th Southern California title overall) and won the State Championship in 2004. The top three teams advanced to the State High School Championship held at Poppy Hills Golf Course in Pebble Beach Wednesday. Joining Torrey Pines at the championship were Servite High School (371) and Santa Margarita High School (374). The top six individuals not on a qualifying team also advanced to the State Cham-

Matt Boermeester had two hits and drove in the game’s only run for Cathedral Catholic. The Dons advanced to the finals after defeating Monte Vista 1-0 in a thrilling eight-inning June 2 semifinal. Gonsalves, who was credited with the victory, pitched one scoreless inning in relief of starter Michael Martin, who struck out six batters and allowed one walk in seven innings of six-hit ball. The Dons improved their overall record for the season to 30-4.

Torreys cap season with first CIF baseball title La Jolla Country Day’s Dustin Hughes pitched a completegame shutout for the Torreys in the CIF title game. PHIL DAILEY

BY PHIL DAILEY All season long the La Jolla Country Day baseball team had a never-say-die attitude. In 10 of the Torreys’ games they came from behind to win. Five of those victories came in their last at-bat. On Saturday against Francis Parker for the CIF Division IV title, no comeback was needed as the Torreys (25-7 overall) got off to a hot start and never looked back, defeating the Lancers (285) for their first CIF baseball title at Tony Gwynn Stadium on the campus of San Diego State University. Led by key hits at the plate, and clutch pitching on the mound, the Torreys made history with a group comprised of six seniors, three juniors and a crop of sophomores. Included in the

The Torreys pose for a photo after the game. PHIL DAILEY group of sophomores was the winning pitcher, Dustin Hughes, who pitched a complete game shutout, and Tommy Edman, who in the team’s first at-bat, launched a shot over the left field fence to give the Torreys a quick 1-0 lead. The team’s first CIF title, according to head coach John Edman, was attributed to the team’s chemistry. “These guys (seniors) did such a great job of embracing the younger guys,” Said Edman, the team’s coach for the past 12 seasons. “For the whole season we had really good chemistry,” sophomore Tommy Edman said. “We started off pretty well and we never had any down games, really.” Facing Parker’s top pitcher in Kendall Lindley, who shutout Country Day back on April 27, the Torreys took a different approach this time around. “The guys did a really good job of being patient in the first inning,” John Edman said. “He (Lindley) gets a lot of guys to chase and we did a really good job of making him throw it over the plate.” That was evident in the first at-bat of the game as Tommy Edman faced a full count. “I knew he didn’t want to walk the leadoff hitter so I thought it was going to be a fastball — and I got it,” Tommy Edman said. From there, the Torreys added two more runs — an RBI single from junior Sam Ayala and another RBI single by senior Frank Brown — to take an early 3-0 lead. On the mound, the Torreys got a clutch

performance from Hughes, who allowed five hits and got in a few jams during his seven innings pitched. “I just tried to stay focused and work my way back and never give up,” said Hughes, who threw 104 pitches during the game. “Dustin was great, he stayed focused through all that,” said Tommy Edman, referring to two innings where the Lancers had runners in scoring position. “He made the pitches when he needed to.” The Torreys added one run each in the third, fourth, fifth and sixth innings to stretch the lead to 7-0 entering the bottom of the seventh. Hughes got all three Lancer batters out in order to complete the game, giving the Torreys the championship. “It’s the first time we have been in the championship game,” said John Edman. “It’s a big accomplishment for these guys.” The team will say goodbye to six seniors, two of which will play next season at the Division I level as catcher Anthony Torres heads to Iowa and second baseman Austin Rooke will play at Northern Colorado. “We graduate six great seniors,” Edman said, “but we have a really, really special sophomore class.” The team also returns all of its pitchers, including Hughes. But the game Saturday wasn’t about the future, it was about the accomplishment of this team. “CIF championship,” Hughes said. “First time in La Jolla Country Day history.”

Race to the finish line for LJYB Playoffs are under way for La Jolla Youth Baseball and, for some, the season has already ended. Such is the bittersweet ending to single-elimination playoff brackets. Oneand-done for some. Of course LJYB always has its fair share of upsets and nail-biters. As usual, the Bronco playoffs generated excitement, especially the elimination game between the North Coast Dermatology “Lasers” and Souza & Souza Construction, which went into extra innings thanks to a three-run Laser rally to tie the game in the bottom of the seventh and postponed in the ninth because of darkness. The two teams completed the game two nights later and the Lasers again battled back from a four-run deficit with two-outs in the bottom of the ninth to steal the victory from Souza & Souza with a clutch hit by Christophe Gish to win the game. The Lasers stayed on the field to face the undefeated No. 1-seeded Bulldogs of Simpson, Delmore & Greene, making their first playoff appearance. SDG was stymied by strong pitching from Daniel McColl, Nick Barber, Maxwell Hyytinen and Conor Harrison in an 11-2 shellacking. In the other side of the bracket, the On the Inside Design team got past the pesky Aladdin Bail Bonds team to advance to the championship game. The “Insiders” were a scoring machine all season, averaging 15 runs per game and losing only to SDG. On Championship Saturday, the Lasers’ Cinderella story continued through five innings before the Insiders broke the 6-4 game open with their trademark power. Carson Greene, Austin Caulk, James Shimishita and Ben Wintringer led the team to a 12-7 victory with their pitching and hitting. Following

the trophy ceremony and in LJYB-style, both teams got together for a post-game BBQ to celebrate an excellent finish to their Bronco season. Mustang playoffs started Saturday with four games. Fifth seed Voices for Children defeated fourth seed StepStone in the morning game. Top seed Morgan Stanley continued their perfect record, easily handling eighth seed So Cal Ideas 15-2. In the afternoon games, No.2 seed Cass St. narrowly defeated seventh seed Mission Imprintables to avenge one of their two losses in the season. In the final game of the day, No. 3 seed Care Drugs broke an 8-8 tie game in the last inning to defeat sixth seed First Choice with Robert Rowland stealing home for the winning run. The “Mustang Play of the Week” was Care Drug’s Daniel Massaad making a Willie Maysesque over-the-head catch to kill a First Choice rally in the fourth inning. In the semifinals, Voices for Children faced Morgan Stanley on Monday and Cass Street squared off against Care Drugs on Tuesday. The championship game was played on Wednesday. In Pinto — where anything is possible — top seed Jeff Lang Homes’ Aviators played No. 4 seed Scoma Pediatric Dentistry on Monday and 6th seed Harry’s Coffee Shop played No. 7 seed Mitch’s Surf Shop on Tuesday to fill out the semifinal brackets. The “Pinto Play of the Week” was Cole Harrison’s grab of a long fly ball with the tying run on base to end the game and preserve an 11-10 win over Baxter. The championship game was played on Wednesday. —Tom Murphy, LJYB

La Jolla Festival of the Arts marks 25th year BY KIRBY BROOKS rt, music, culture, food and philanthropy will all come together at the 25th annual La Jolla Festival of the Arts at Warren Field on the east campus of USCD, June 18-19. Visitors will see the work of nearly 200 awardwinning artists on display with entertainment by The Mar Dels, Rockola, Dave Scott Band, Fred Benedetti & Peter Sprague, and the U.S. Navy Destroyers. Proceeds from the event, which has evolved from an art festival to a weekend-long extravaganza, support more than 30 programs for San Diegans with disabilities. “With 2011 marking 25 years of art and giving, this year’s La Jolla Festival of the Arts is going to be the best ever,” said co-chair Ted Peña, a member of the Torrey Pines Kiwanis, which produces the event. “From a new grass venue on UCSD’s campus, adding craft beer and fine wine to our restaurant row, and bringing back the Mar Dels and Rockola, this is no doubt the most anticipated festival to date and it’s all for a great cause.”

Afghan Women’s Writing Project to link East-West cultures By KirBy BrooKs It isn’t surprising to see Afghanistan in the daily news, especially with the recent death of Osama bin Laden, but it is surprising to gain insight into the daily thoughts and worries of the women in this war-torn country. Local writer Barbara Field is getting just that, as a volunteer for the Afghan Women’s Writing Project (AWWP). With the motto, Barbara “To tell one’s Field story is a human right,” AWWP couples Afghan women with female writing mentors here in the United States. Although the resulting essays, stories and poems are written in peril and edited to protect the women’s identities, some of their most poignant insights come from ordinary, not extraordinary events. “I don’t know how people can read these poems and stories and not be inspired,” said Field, explaining her

COURTESY PHOTOS motivation for becoming involved with AWWP. “The stories — some horrible and some good — are so moving … so powerful. You read them and say to yourself, ‘Oh gosh, oh wow.’ We are helping these women have a voice.” The writing and editing process is all conducted online in secure classrooms. “I spend a few weeks or a month with a student working on one or two pieces,” Field explained. When you read the stories on the website, what comes across as shocking is not the situations, but how these burqa-clad women seem more like Western women

than one might think. Despite living in a society where far less freedom is afforded women, the stories published through AWWP showcase a woman who ran for parliament, a woman who rebelled against her family and culture to marry the man she loves, and another who became an outspoken advocate for imprisoned Afghan women in the face of a threat from the Taliban. These circumstances may not be common in America, but the spirit of these women is something American women can identify with nonetheless. “We can do anything and say anything, and we take it

for granted,” Field said. “When you read their stories it all comes home. They risk so much to tell their stories, yet what comes out of them is our similarities as women.” Field, a UCSD communications manager and Op Ed Project regional manager, recently wrapped her first rotation with AWWP students. She joins a list of accomplished mentors involved with the project. Field was on staff at CBS, Harcourt Brace, and Scripps Research Institute. Her novel, “The Deeper, The Bluer,” won a Writer’s Digest fiction award. She also teaches at UCSD’s Extension Service and Whidbey Island Writers

Families bid a fond farewell to ‘Mr. Ant’ as All Hallows principal retires

La Jolla Cultural Partners

By Jenna Jay There will soon be a noticeable absence of the sedan with license plate “MR ANT” parked outside All Hallows Academy on Mount Soledad. That’s because “Mr. Ant,” principal Ms. Michaele Durant, will have moved on from the academy. Ms. Durant — or “Mr. Ant,” as students and parents have fondly come to call her — will retire on Michaele June 10, afDurant ter spending the last 42 years in support of Catholic education. Jill Platt has been named to succeed her. Durant has overseen more than 10,000 kids through the course of her career, and her retirement comes after 33 years spent as principal at various schools on the East and West Coasts. Durant has been at All Hallows since 2005. She came to supervise the multi-million dollar renovation at the

all Hallows academy Principal Michaele Durant (center) poses with students leaving for Sixth Grade Camp. COURTESY PHOTOS school that was completed in 2008. “The first 2-1/2 to 3 years was just very consumed with the construction project,” Durant recalled. “It’s a good thing I had all the background in Catholic education because I could do that at the same time of trying to manage and facilitate the construction. It was a very good change for me and a challenge for me.” In fact, Durant said she

didn’t just oversee All Hallows grow in physical size, she also witnessed the academy’s growth inside the freshly painted classroom walls and in the new computer and science labs on campus. “I certainly think the addition of the new building has allowed us to improve the programs we had,” Durant said. “I think we’ve also been able to enhance the curriculum to meet both

contemporary needs in education and the needs of the kids.” Parents and teachers joke that the “MR ANT” car permanently resides outside the academy, as Durant has poured her efforts into the school. Above all, however, Durant said the students are the motivation behind most of her hard work, and what has given her the most joy in her tenure as principal. “There are just so many

wonderful memories with kids,” she said. “That’s been my motivation all along. I’ve always considered myself an advocate for kids — whether it’s making sure we have the curriculum that meets each of their learning needs, supporting them when they make mistakes, or congratulating them when they have their successes. It’s all the things that have to do with kids that I’ve really found most

rewarding in 42 years. “There’s no question about it. I’m not going to miss the meetings … all the paperwork … I’m going to miss the kids and watching them grow and then doing what I need to do to make sure they grow.” While proclaiming that her biggest plan for retirement is to “clean her house,” Durant said she still hopes to work for the next few years in some capacity.

Inness’ images of Italy ‘molto bello’ in new show at The Timken The Timken Museum of Art will be the exclusive West Coast venue for “George Inness in Italy,” an exhibition of Italian landscapes by the American painter, June 10-Sept. 18. Organized by the Philadelphia Museum of Art, this is the first exhibition to examine Inness’s two Italian sojourns (1851–1852 and 1870–1874) and their impact on his experimentation with style, composition, and subject as he sought inspiration in both the art of the Old Masters and his personal experiences of the places they painted. A highlight of the exhibition is the Timken’s own “L’Ariccia” (1874), Inness’s most representative of the three paintings exhibited from his second trip to Italy. For Inness, Italy provided the paradigm of the “civilized landscape,” which he held up as the “ideal” for its ability to express human sentiment through nature, famously declaring that the aim of art “is not to instruct, not to edify, but to awaken an emotion.”

If you go ■ What: ‘George Inness in Italy’ ■ Where: Timken Museum of Art, Balboa Park ■ When: 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesdays-Saturdays; 1:30-4:30 p.m. Sundays; June 10-Sept. 18 ■ Admission: Free ■ Contact: (619) 239-5548 ■ Website: The show will offer visitors 10 oil paintings and one watercolor. Inness’s first major work completed in Italy, “Twilight on the Campagna” (1851) Philadelphia Museum of Art, has not been on view since 1952. Its reemergence and restoration, precipitated by a publication of Inness’s entire body of work issued in 2007, constituted a significant rediscovery. Each landscape is filled with a poetic sentiment, encapsulating the topography with an “orchestrated intricacy.” Inness enjoyed his most

His paintings sold well, both as mementos for affluent American travelers, and as progressive stylistic experiments for leading collectors of American landscape painting. Inness is admired as the pioneer of Tonalism, distinguished by soft focus and diaphanous layers of paint. Although Inness returned to the states in 1874, he continued to paint Italian composi-

Works on display include “Classical Landscape,” 1850; “A Bit of the Roman Aqueduct,” 1852-53; “St. Peter’s, Rome,” 1857; “Lake Nemi,” 1857; “Lake Albano,” 1869; “Pines and Olives at Albano,” 1873; “New Perugia,” 1879; “Upland Village in the Italian Tyrol,” 1873; and “Valley of Cadore,” 1873.

Landscape Painter George Inness ■ Born: Newburgh, N.Y., May 1, 1825 ■ Died: Bridge of Allan in Scotland, Aug. 3, 1894 ■ Work influenced by: The Old Masters, the Hudson River school, the Barbizon school, and, finally, by the theology of Emanuel Swedenborg, whose spiritualism found vivid expression in the work of Inness’ maturity. He’s best known for these works that helped define the Tonalist Movement. ■ Personal: Married Delia Miller in 1849. She died a few months later. In 1850, he married Elizabeth Abigail Hart. They had six children. ■ Son, George Inness, Jr.: Also became a landscape painter of note.

Jazz series gets underway at the Athenaeum Summer concerts return to the 150-seat Joan and Irwin Jacobs Music Room at the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library with the annual Farrell Family Jazz series. It opens 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 14 with the Gilbert Castellanos Quartet and guest trumpeter James Zollar. This performance opens a yearlong series, “Night of the Cookers: Tribute to the Trumpet Masters,” hosted by San Diego-based trumpetmaster Castellanos at a variety of venues. For this concert, he leads Eric Reed on piano, Hamilton Price on bass, and NYC-based drummer Willie Jones III. Recognized as a new American master by DownBeat, Castellanos has established himself among the nation’s most inventive improvisers. He is joined for this show by fellow trumpeter James Zollar, who makes his first Athenaeum appearance since 2004. Zollar spent his high school and early adult years in San Diego, moving in 1985 to New York City. Zollar’s credits include work with artists such as the Duke Ellington and Count Basie orchestras, Don Byron, David Murray, Mongo Santamaria, Frank Foster, and Wynton Marsalis’ Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra. Next up Friday, July 1 is a return visit by Israeli clarinetist and saxophonist Anat Cohen, who made her Athenaeum debut last spring with a tribute to Benny Goodman. She will be joined by Joe Martin on bass, Daniel Freedman on drums, and a pianist to be announced. She is conversant with modern and traditional jazz, classical music, Brazilian choro, Argentine tango, and an expansive timeline of AfroCuban styles. The series continues Thursday, July 21 with a return performance by New York-based vocalist Kendra Shank, with Hamilton Price on bass, and two musicians to be announced on piano on drums. Shank’s most recent CD, “A Spirit Free: Abbey Lincoln Songbook,” was listed among the top jazz CDs of 2007. The Boston Globe com-

She also functions like a true equal with her excellent rhythm section.” The series ends Wednesday, July 27 with a San Diego debut by NYC-based Edmar Castaneda Trio, featuring improvising Colombian harpist Castaneda with trombonist Marshall Gilkes, and drummer/percussionist Dave Silliman. A native of Bogota, Castaneda has been taking New York and major international jazz festivals by storm with his unique approach to Latin jazz via the traditional Colombian arpa llanera. In addition to leading his own groups, he’s been chosen as a guest soloist by artists like Paquito D’Rivera, Wynton Marsalis and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, John Scofield, and John Patitucci. JazzTimes commented “the phenomenal Colombian harpist Edmar Castaneda, whose technically astounding approach to the instrument has been registering with ‘scenesters’ over the past year, covers independent, heavily grooving bass lines with his left hand while chording and also running counterpoint melodies and dazzling triplet figures with his right hand. [He brings] a kind of Charlie Hunter or Joe Passian approach to the harp.”

Bertrand at Mister a’s offers 360-degree views of america’s Finest City. The halibut is the signature dish right now, while it is in season from alaska.

At Bertrand at Mister A’s, the fare steps up to the view By Will Parson owering above Banker’s Hill is a 360-degree panorama that perhaps only a true San Diegan can fully appreciate. The all-inclusive view bares all, and the trained eye can spend an entire meal at Bertrand at Mister A’s just picking out local landmarks. It’s the view that helped make the original Mister A’s the place to be from the 1960s to the 1980s. But its revival a decade ago is more a testament to owner Bertrand Hug’s well-choreographed staff, which knows full well that every night is special for someone at one of the city’s most romantic restaurants. Hug’s favorite time to be on the deck is indeed at night, when he says downtown really sparkles. A San Diegan since 1973, Hug said the view impressed him well before he became the owner. “I wanted to buy (Mister A’s) forever,” he said. “Any time I would pick up friends or family at the airport, I would take them immediately up to the restaurant to show them my city.” After taking over in 2000, Hug completely redecorated the redvelvet interior and furnished the deck that had so impressed him

■ This week: Bertrand at Mister A’s European White Asparagus Soup from Chef Stephane Voitzwinkler in the first place. Nowadays the patio offers a more casual experience at a place formerly associated with dinner jackets. And for six years, Chef de Cuisine Stéphane Voitzwinkler has worked with Hug to produce an American menu with French and Mediterranean accents, buying the freshest ingredients from local sources like Chino Farms in Rancho Santa Fe. “Our thing is changing the menu pretty much once a week or every two weeks to adapt to what is freshest,” said Hug. “We buy whatever is going to be the best.” Very recent additions to the

menu include line-caught, grilled Copper River salmon, sautéed wild Alaskan halibut, as well as a prime rib eye from Brandt Beef. The dinner menu really goes all out, so bear that in mind when you get your check. Aside from the view, the additional advantage of sitting outside (or at the bar) is that you are able to order off the patio and happy hour menus. This is likely the best way to get a low-key introduction to Bertrand at Mister A’s. At a restaurant that doesn’t hold back, even the macaroni and cheese (and the truffle fries) have quite a reputation of their own.

‘Paradise’ comes to the Maritime Museum By Lonnie Burstein Hewitt Whether you’re a sailing enthusiast, a confirmed landlubber, or a lover of history, art, and tales of the South Pacific, downtown’s waterfront Maritime Museum has a show for you: “Cook, Melville & Gauguin: Three Voyages to Paradise.” The 156-piece exhibit contains a wealth of art and artifacts relating to the voyages of Captain James Cook (1728-79), writer Herman Melville (1819-91) and artist Paul Gauguin (1848-1903). Among these is the largest display of Gauguin’s sculptures ever shown. Most of the pieces come from the Kelton Foundation, whose president, Richard Kelton, is an adventurous sailor and renowned collector of Pacific and maritime art. “I love the sea, I’ve sailed to all these areas, and I’ve had a long association with the Maritime Museum,” he said.

the world of Gauguin. The standout is a newly-discovered erotic sculpture, believed to be one of the artist’s lost woodcarvings. But there are other delights, like the Japanese-influenced Resurrection Sarcophagus, which he gave to his longsuffering French wife to explain the life choices that kept him from home. On the Surprise, maritime history comes alive as you walk past a replica of Cook’s cabin, examine a variety of quintants and sextants, watch film clips from “Mo-

by Dick,” “Adventures in Paradise” or “Mutiny on the Bounty,” and really feel what it might have been like to be on one of those voyages of discovery. “We hope this exhibit gives viewers a sense of the importance of attempting to preserve whatever paradises still exist in the world,” Kelton said. According to his partner, Mary Nicholls, who has accompanied him on many voyages, Richard Kelton is both sailor and scholar. “He just can’t help himself,” she said. “He started focusing on

Gauguin in Tahiti; it’s just been a love affair since then. And every long voyage we’ve done, we took one or two scientists along. His major plan was enabling them to reach the islands and pursue their area of research.” According to Robyn Gallant, director of events, the exhibit is quite a coup. “A number of other museums across the country were very disappointed that we got the Kelton Collection and they didn’t,” she said.

Museum staff and volunteers, many with their own experiences of sailing the South Pacific, spent months preparing the exhibit. Among them is La Jollan Neva Sullaway, a former “seagoing hitchhiker” and editor of the impressive Maritime History Journal, which doubles as the show’s catalog. “My familiarity with the area and with Cook, Melville and Gauguin made the opportunity to do the catalog just thrilling,” she said.

Members applaud fun, new exhibit at contemporary art museum


t the Members’ Opening of “High Fidelity: Selections from the 1960s and 1970s” and “Emperor’s River: Philipp Scholz Rittermann,” at the Museum of Contemporary Art in La Jolla on May 27, many of the attendees looked as good as the art! Chief Curator Kathryn Kanjo introduced the two exhibits, pointing out that they represented the museum in its fullest sense: its interest in different historical periods, along with its support of living artists, like San Diego photographer Philipp Scholz Rittermann, who was there at her side. Kanjo described Rittermann’s large-scale images of life along China’s Grand Canal as having “formal complexity and mind-bending clarity,” and viewers clearly found them enthralling. The “High Fidelity” works reflected the spirit and range of the ’60s and ’70s, and set the tone for a festive evening. The show runs through Sept. 5.

Bach Collegium to breathe new life into 300-year-old opera Bach Collegium San Diego will bring its eighth season to a close with its first staged production of a complete opera, Henry Purcell’s “Dido and Aeneas,” June 11 and 12 at the new 400-seat Rancho Santa Fe Performing Arts Center on the campus of R. Roger Rowe Middle School. The opera, first Ruben perfomed in LonValenzuela, don in 1688, tells Bach Collegium the love story of music director Dido, Queen of Carthage, and the Trojan War hero Aeneas, and her despair at his abandonment of her.

Tompa will stage “Dido and Aeneas” in a contemporary setting, with few sets and props, instead making use of projections and vi-

sual elements. He plans to include UCSD students in the stage crew. “ ‘Dido and Aeneas’ is a landmark of Baroque music and considered by many to be the first true English opera,” said music director Ruben Valenzuela. “It’s a bona fide hit, and a great entry point for newcomers because it’s only about an hour Gabor Tompa, long and includes opera director a lot of beautiful music and even a famous aria, ‘Dido’s Lament.’ It will feature 16 singers and an orchestra of 16 players using authentic 17th-century period instruments.” Bach Collegium is San Diego’s

Switchfoot’s Bro-Am weekend to raise funds for at-risk kids The annual surf contest/ beach concert, Switchfoot BroAm Presented By Hurley, is Saturday, June 18 at Moonlight Beach in Encinitas. Set to perform are The Howls, The Romany Rye, The Silent Comedy and Jon Foreman & Friends. Ultimate Ears will premiere clips from Switchfoot’s new album “Vice Verses,” at listening stations. It’s the centerpiece in a weekend of activities conceived by local rockers Switchfoot to give back to their community and benefit the San Diego and Oceanside chapters of StandUp For Kids (standupforkids. org). This nonprofit volunteer outreach organization is dedicated to making a difference in the lives of at-risk, homeless and street kids. Since its inception in 2005, the Bro-Am has raised more than $400,000. Last year’s event was the most successful to date, drawing some 7,500 attendees and raising more than $135,000 for the local chapters of StandUp For Kids. While admission to the beach event is free, funds are raised at an Auction Night Soiree (June 16 at a La Jolla Shores residence, tickets from $100), and through sponsorships, beach vendors and the after-party June 18 at the Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach, with Johnny Rzeznik (Goo Goo Dolls), Fiction Family and Little Hurricane. Four-person surf teams secure their participation via sponsorship donation to StandUp For Kids. This year’s teams include riders representing Hurley, Billabong, Surfer Magazine, Transworld Surf, Surf Ride, Jetpilot, AKA and Shaper Studios Surfboards — as well as members of Switchfoot. For the second year, the Bro-Am will also feature a surfers junior division. Tickets:
