Nestled at the foot of La Jolla Shores Drive, the decades-old hotel joins Hotel Palomar and Hotel Solamar downtown as the third local property under Kimpton’s stewardship. Kimpton also operates the Argonaut and five other properties in San Francisco. Following the $4 million renovation, the hotel

she said. “There hadn’t been any major updates (and) we realized there’s so much more potential with this property. Our neighbors were very open about what they thought the hotel needed to be and what they wanted it to be.” One of the most important aspects of the redesign for locals, Dyal said, was to keep the restaurant on the 11th (and top) floor, instead of moving it to ground level, as originally planned. When speaking with residents in The Shores or La Jolla Village, Dyal said, people would get a big

Stench Entrenched Deodorizing Cove will require time, money and bureaucratic buy-in By Pat Sherman Community members determined to rid La Jolla of the foul odor caused by pelican, cormorant and sea lion waste at La Jolla Cove will have to hold their noses a while longer. According to Bob Morris with the San Diego Regional Water Quality Control Board (RWQCB), it will take a year to obtain a permit from his state agency. The permit is required to spray a deodorizing solvent on the offal-encrusted cliffs and rocks, and comes with a permit fee of $4,000 to $5,000. Morris said an initial product proposal to be submitted to the RWQCB should state the

Divers mark 40th anniversary of La Jolla’s underwater reserve BY SHELLI DEROBERTIS To celebrate the 40th year since the creation of the San Diego-La Jolla Ecological Reserve, the San Diego Council of Divers held a ceremony at La Jolla Cove July 14, near the plaque that honors the two late divers who helped establish the marine reserve and popular diving spot. An underwater 6,000-acre park that spans the La Jolla Cove to Torrey Pines Gliderport, the San Diego-La Jolla Ecological Reserve was officially recognized by the City of San Diego in 1972. Scott Anderson, president of the Council of Divers, said two artificial reefs exist in the underwater park where fishing and scavenging is prohibited. “One is 70-feet near Scripps Canyon,” he said. “The other reef was built in 1945 near Black’s Beach and is about 40-feet.” The men who helped form the underwater park were Conrad F. Limbaugh and Howard F. Riley. Both died of water-related deaths before the city established the reserve as a protected marine area. It all started in the 1940s when researchers at the Scripps Institute of Oceanography noticed a decline of marine animals in the area — mainly giant sea bass, broomtail grouper and abalone. Community members and researchers joined efforts to lobby until the City of San Diego and the California Department of Fish and Game established the reserve, according to the national Marine Protected Areas (MPA) organization. Squid trawlers who worked in the area

Scott Anderson remembers the two late divers who helped create the underwater park 40 years ago at a July 14 commemoration at La Jolla Cove. COURTESY were believed to be responsible for damaging the habitats near the rim of the submarine canyon, causing the decline in marine life. Anderson said the anniversary celebration was co-hosted by Rocks, Rips and Reefs (3Rs) an in-water education program for divers and snorkelers.

The San Diego-La Jolla Underwater Park spans 6,000 acres of ocean bottom and tidelands. It actually has two other parks within it — the Ecological Reserve and the Marine Life Refuge.

From Stench, A1 Carlos Sebastian, said his product, at full strength, passed the three-species test that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) uses to test for toxicity on three of the most environmentally sensitive species of fish. “We’ve got aquariums running on the product,” Sebastian said, adding it has been used for three decades in Japan as an anti-wrinkle agent. However, Sebastian said he doesn’t want to “spend thousands of dollars” for a permit application or further testing without knowing what the RWQCB requires. “We’d like to know from them what they need from us to say it’s OK to use your product,” he said. “I will perform whatever (test) they need.” La Jollan Mark Evans, who is working with the city’s Park and Recreation staff to rid the Cove of its reek, has suggested another product, which he said Park and Recreation District Manger Dan Daneri seems more amiable to — Costa Mesa-based Bio-Organic Catalyst’s EcoSystem Plus. A product description for EcoSystem says it is safe for use in “all wastewater applications, including municipal and industrial wastewater facilities, agricultural and animal waste lagoons, and other contaminated water systems.” Though Evans is awaiting further documentation from the company, he said he believes the product received EPA approval.

“I think the advantage it has is that it has been thoroughly tested scientifically and has been, apparently, cleared by the EPA and other regulatory agencies for discharge into any body of water — whether it’s an ocean, lake, river or anything else, because it’s not deemed to be a pollutant of any sort. “According to (the company) it would work almost instantaneously,” Evans said. “It basically just decomposes the stuff and turns it back into elements that are harmless.” Whichever method of cliff cleansing is put forth, the city’s Deputy Director of Developed Regional Parks, Kathleen Hasenauer, said both the manufacturer and community must obtain a letter from the RWQCB stating that the runoff created “doesn’t contain soluble concentrations of any chemical in excess of water quality (standards),” nor other pollutants that would contaminate the wetlands. Thus far “that hasn’t been able to happen,” she said. “If there’s any discharge into the wetlands, we as the property owner, would be responsible. That was the information we got from our Storm Water (Department).” Some community members have suggested cleansing the rocks and cliffs with plain ocean water (sans any cleansing agents), perhaps pumped via boat or sea vessel. Hasenauer said she is not sure if that plan would gain city approval. “That would have to come from

someone who would say this does not constitute a violation of a discharge into the wetlands and surface waters,” she said. Once community members gain RWQCB buy-in, they also must obtain a right-of-entry permit from the city, which is required for any debris removal or cleanup effort on city park property. The community also must provide insurance, as well as a detailed map of where the spraying would occur. At a recent meeting of La Jolla Parks and Beaches, Inc., Dan Daneri said previous maps submitted to Park and Recreation for the spraying were insufficient. “I think it’s ultimately going to be the burden of those of us who want to get something done — whether it’s a map or an aerial photo that reflects precisely the area that would be sprayed, so the city knows what’s going to be done,” Evans said. According to Morris, the spraying also would be subject to the EPA’s National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit process, as well as possible approval by the California Department of Fish and Game, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. “Any person who is discharging a pollutant in the waters of the United States is subject to the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System,” Morris said, noting that the RWQCB can provide “the appropriate requirements for such a discharge.”

Committee OKs easement to power Mt. Soledad veterans memorial By Pat Sherman At its meeting on Monday, members of La Jolla Parks and Beaches, Inc. (LJP&B) approved the Mt. Soledad Memorial Association’s request for an easement to provide power to the veterans’ memorial atop Mount Soledad with the stipulation that the association return to LJP&B with a clear plan for how it intends to light the various components of the memorial. At its June meeting, the board tabled a motion to prohibit any lighting of the memorial, which the members voted down on Monday. The memorial association, which would foot the bill for construction of the easement and ongoing utilities, held a public lighting test July 18, illuminating the flag, steps and one section of the memorial wall. Local residents, city staff and members of both LJP&B and the La Jolla Community Planning Association gathered to view the lighting. “Our intent is not to light the mountaintop” or “create something that’s going to blind people” memorial association Chairman Bill Kellogg said during the LJP&B’s Monday meeting, in response to concerns that the lighting could obscure views of the city skyline, stars and other celestial bodies. Kellogg said the Navy, which now has control of the land, requested the lighting for safety concerns, due in part to the steepness of the steps. “We have a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Navy which asks our association to manage the site and make sure that it works well,” he said. “We are required to preserve or return the memorial to such a condition that it may be safe when visited by the public.” LJP&B member John Beaver said he felt the flag lighting was appropriate and impressive, but that lights on the steps were too bright. Illuminating the memorial plaques is not necessary from a safety standpoint, he said. “The sidewalk around the plaques has a railing on it, is very wide and has very low elevation so that people can easily handle that sidewalk without fear,” Beaver said. “They’re not going to fall off the edge.” LJP&B treasurer Phyllis Minick expressed concern that, days after the test, she drove by the site and noticed the cross being illuminated with the same equipment — something members of the memorial association denied involvement in. “We have enough controversy,” Minick said. Because the memorial sits on federal land,

Kellogg said the association was trying to be a good citizen by conducting the test and attending LJP&B meetings to answer questions. “We could have just skipped this and gone to the city council and said the heck with it,” he said, noting that the easement would cost his association between $250,000 to $350,000 and would not involved a noisy generator, nor create any impacts to the site after completion. Memorial association members said the easement was also needed to power the site for events. However, when questioned by LJP&B member Sally Miller, Kellogg conceded that of the average 40 events the association holds there each year, only a few require electricity. Questioned as to whether the Navy would dictate how the power and lights are used, Kellogg said he could not predict the military’s plans. “I think the way the site gets lit is something we have to work on as a community (moving forward),” he said.

Remembering Sally Ride By Lynne Friedmann first met Sally Ride in 1996, when I was hired as a media consultant to the Tyler Prize for Environmental Achievement ( Sally was the only woman on the 11-member executive committee. For the next five years, I watched her in action as the committee deliberated nominations and administered the award. Among those around the table were a Nobel laureate, two past Tyler Prize recipients, and other eminent scientists, many with forceful personalities. Sally always came prepared and when she spoke it was with a calm authority that often cut through posturing and deadlocked votes to arrive at consensus. Tyler Prize award banquets are glittering black-tie affairs, held in Beverly Hills. But Sally was not the ball gown type. She always attended the event wearing slacks and a dark, tailored jacket with a design of small crescent moons and stars. Yes, it was a playful nod to her historic position as first American Sally Ride was born Woman in Space, but it was so subtle that in Los Angeles May she never drew attention away from the 26, 1951. She died on evening’s award honorees. July 23, 2012 in La In 2000, Sally called me at home to say Jolla at age 61, after she was leaving her position as president of a 17-month battle the space and astronomy news website with pancreatic to pursue opportunities in cancer. COURTESY science education. She wanted to hire me to write the news release and be the point person for the media calls. Sally was a fiercely private person and her reluctance to give interviews was legendary among reporters. After the news was announced, a writer from a national publication called with three insightful questions I felt would nail the story and, in turn, lead to wider coverage as it was picked up by other media. I reached Sally on her cell phone. She was walking through an airport at the time, but she took my counsel and granted the interview before boarding her flight. Afterwards, the reporter phoned me with thanks and, words to the effect, “How’d you get her to call me!?!” Due to an accounting error, my check for the assignment was $25 short. “I’ll make it up to you one cup of coffee at a time,” Sally said, and she was true to her word. Over the years, we would get together occasionally on the UCSD campus and enjoy a relaxing, quiet chat which often centered on the progress of Sally Ride Science to which she was utterly focused and devoted. Lynne Friedmann is a science columnist for the La Jolla Light.


Burglars steal safe from Barbarella By Pat Sherman Sometime between 2 and 4 a.m. Thursday, July 19, a masked burglar broke into Barbarella restaurant at 2171 Avenida De La Playa in La Jolla Shores. The suspect, who also was wearing gloves, made off with a safe and wine, and damaged a cash register and other items, said the establishment’s owner, Barbara Beltaire, who was alerted by employees who stopped in at around 4 a.m. that morning to do some baking. The suspect, whose image was captured on one of Beltaire’s security cameras, also attempted to break into storage cages and refrigerators, though he was unsuccessful, she said. “In the beginning he was wearing a mask, pants, gloves and shoes,” she said. “He did take his mask off. We’ve got pretty good visual shots.” The suspect knocked out a few of the cameras, but did not damage them all, said Beltaire, who estimated the total damage and theft to be about $8,000. “He really messed up the place,” she said. Beltaire said there is plenty of evidence to help police with their investigation, including a roller the suspect used to wheel out the safe, which was left behind. Beltaire said she has taken measures to increase security at the restaurant. “I’ve got armed, solid metal doors now; I have 16 more cameras,” she said, noting some other burglaries and vehicle thefts in the La Jolla Shores area over the past year.

“We’ve been broken into before and had night intruders come in and sleep on the patio,” she said. “The streets are not well-lit.” San Diego Police Detective Gary Hassen said officers are waiting for Beltaire to extract video from one of the surveillance cameras, which may assist them in their ongoing investigation.

Scientists find new genetic test predicts prostate cancer risk


genetic test to predict the risk for prostate cancer could reduce the need for repeat biopsies in men who have previously had negative biopsies. In a clinical trial, 1,654 men who had By Lynne Friedmann prostate biopsies also had genetic studies conducted that looked for the presence of genetic variations that may have an association with prostate cancer risk. The genetic test outperformed the widely used PSA (Prostate-Specific Antigen) test in assessing cancer risk. Because this “genetic score” is available at any time in a man’s lifetime it could be used as a pre-screening test thus leaving aggressive PSA screening only to men at higher genetic risk. The goal is to avoid, particularly in older men, unnecessary repeat biopsy procedures which carry with them the risk of infection and potential hospitalizations. — Findings appear in the journal of European Urology.

Research Report

Inhibiting malaria parasite development Malaria is responsible worldwide for more than 1.2 million human deaths annually. Severe forms of the disease are caused by the parasite Plasmodium falciparum transmitted to humans by the bite of female Anopheles mosquitoes. Lack of vaccines, together with the parasite’s ability to develop drug resistance, has thwarted eradication efforts. An international team of scientists, led by researchers from the Department of Pediatrics at the UC School of Medicine, has identified the first reported inhibitors of a key enzyme essential for the development and survival of P. falciparum — even in parasites that developed resistance to currently available drugs. People with a natural deficiency in this enzyme are protected from malaria and its deadly symptoms, an observation that triggered the research effort. The hope is the dis-

Researchers from the La Jolla Institute for Allergy & Immunology have discovered a molecule’s previously unknown role in fighting off E. coli and other bacterial infections. The molecule (known as HVEM), expressed by the cells lining the surface of the lung and intestine, is critical to protecting the body from E. coli, pneumococcus, and other bacterial infections that enter our bodies through our respiratory or intestinal tract linings. But what wasn’t known was that HVEM, together win another receptor, is critically important in turning on an anti-bacterial response in the epithelial cells that line the body’s mucosal borders of the mouth, nose, intestines, and lungs. Without the two receptors acting in concert to provide this added protection, the body could not withstand these bacterial infections. — The findings are published in the journal Nature.

If the Price Isn't Right A Realtor has shown you a house in the La Jolla area that you like a lot. There is only one problem---the price seems too high. In a situation like this, remember that you are still free to make an offer you feel is appropriate. The Realtor cannot tell you how much to offer, but can give you information about the selling prices of comparable properties in the area. You can use the value of the "comparables" as a range for a reasonable offer. The agent will present your bid to the seller's agent. They have three choices. They can accept, reject or counter your offer. If the house is a new listing or if your offer is very low, they may decide to hold out for something better. Prices that are not negotiable at the beginning of a listing period may become flexible as time goes by. If you want to buy the house, make the seller an offer you are comfortable with. You may be opening the door for negotiations to begin.

Or how words on a page actually become theater performances? You can get a glimpse of how it’s done at La Jolla Playhouse’s current offering, “The Nightingale,” part of its Page to Stage program for new play development. “The Nightingale” is a promising project with big names attached to it. Steven Sater and Duncan Sheik are writing and composing the musical, based on Hans Christian Andersen’s fairytale of the same name. “The Nightingale” is the

source of the most beautiful song ever heard, a nightingale. Sater and Sheik earned Grammy and Tony awards for their Broadway hit, “Spring Awakening.” An emotional roller coaster, “Spring Awakening” is an adaptation of a late 19thcentury German play about the plight of adolescence in a society that basically denies sexuality’s existence. The now-popular music for the show ranges from the explosive, “The Bitch of Living,” to the heart-wrenching howl, “Touch Me.” A preview of “The Nightingale’s” music, available on La Jolla Playhouse’s website, reveals the new musical fea-

Production casting draws ire of Asian American actors From Local Reports Following criticism of its selection of a white male lead and lack of Asian actors in the workshop production of “The Nightingale,” the La Jolla Playhouse hosted a panel discussion to address the racial tension on July 22, which was attended by an audience of about 150 people. “We didn’t intend to offend fellow artists or the Asian-American community. We inadvertently did so. And we are sorry,” Playhouse’s artistic director Christopher Ashley told the crowd. Leaders of the Asian American Performers Action Coalition (AAPAC) argued, “The idea that a play that takes place in feudal China can be cast with only two Asian American actors out of a company of 12, with the lead role of the Chinese emperor played by a white actor, is in step with a long history of appropriation and misrepresentation of Asian people that has consistently denied Asian artists a voice in shaping how they are represented.” According to the AAPAC, 1.5 percent of all new roles were given to Asian American actors in the last five seasons on Broadway. tures Sater’s characteristically lyrical words, matched to Sheik’s pensive and emotional compositions, befitting a story about a nightingale’s beautiful song. As if the bright musical pair was not enough, Moisés Kaufman directs the workshop piece. Most known perhaps for his work with Tectonic Theatre Project on “The Laramie Project,” Kaufman worked

with author Doug Wright on “I Am My Own Wife,” the Playhouse Page to Stage program’s inaugural play, which found its way to Broadway in 2003. Kaufman’s own “Laramie Project,” a collaborative piece written with the ensemble members of Tectonic Theatre, is based on real interviews with

Dana Holliday FROM PLAYHOUSE, A8 Laramie, Wyoming residents about the murder of gay student Matthew Shepherd. The piece essentially kick-started the docudrama movement in theater, which uses interviews and current events as fodder for conversation-inducing plays. The artistic director of Tectonic Theatre Project, Kaufman was last seen at La Jolla Playhouse in 2008 as the director and playwright of ‘33 Variations,’ a play that toys with past and present through a modern day musicologist’s examination of Beethoven’s “Diabelli Variations.” No doubt, it’s interesting to see where Kaufman takes the budding “Nightingale.” Already notable is the production’s use of puppetry (video available on the Playhouse’s website), designed by Chris Green. Green has worked with the Bread and Puppet

Theatre in Vermont, as well as famous puppeteer Basil Twist; he has also received grants from the Jim Henson Foundation. Additionally, the cast contains a handful of actors familiar with the Playhouse stage, as well as fresh faces from the San Diego theater scene. Audience members will be invited to give feedback in guided post-show sessions with the creative collaborators of “The Nightingale.” The discussions will prove a unique opportunity for theatergoers, whose reactions and input about the show may greatly influence the creative evolution of this latest developing work at La Jolla Playhouse. — The production runs through Aug. 5 in the Sheila and Hughes Potiker Theatre.

From Hotel, A1 smile on their faces reminiscing about a meal or happy hour at Elario’s or Clay’s. “Every seat at the bar (now) faces a view; every table in the restaurant faces a view,” Dyal said. “That view is just simply stunning and jaw dropping. … The old configuration had everybody’s back to it, which is just tragic.” The 100-seat eatery, which opens Aug. 1 as Cusp Dining and Drinks, will offer coastal Mediterranean cuisine inspired by Executive Chef Donald Lockhart, who also created the menu for the hotel’s new 2,000-square-foot outdoor poolside lounge, Hiatus. Dayl said the lounge would was designed as the “perfect gathering spot to have a couple cocktails under the stars or sit poolside with your best girlfriend or your family.” “At night we’ll have a beautiful candlelit glow,” she said. Before conceiving the menu, Lockhart met with several local chefs to introduce himself to the community and gauge what Cusp’s culinary niche would be. Lockhart held two private dinners for local socialites and philanthropists to test some of his healthy, locally sourced, seafood-rich fare. One of Cusp’s signature dishes includes octopus braised slowly with court-bouillon, a spiced French liquid used similar to a stock. The

10.33” x 6”

octopus is then lightly charred on the grill and served warm in a salad with citrus, roasted ciabatta croutons and mojo verde, a cilantro herb puree also made with garlic, shallots and red wine. Lockhart’s “celebration of grilling” will be pointed up with sauces such as romesco, a Spanish nut, roasted red pepper and tomato sauce, and chimichurri, a sauce of Argentinian origin made of chopped parsley, garlic, oregano and olive oil. Cusp also has its own pizza oven to make fresh, gourmet pies, flatbreads, roasted vegetables and potatoes. With the exception of pastas and pizzas, about 80 percent of the menu will be gluten free, Lockhart said. Instead of croutons, he uses ingredients such as cheeses or shaved and roasted baby candycane beets for texture. Donaldson said he also will use the pizza oven to confit a medley of baby Yukon, baby red and purple potatoes with garlic, rosemary and olive oil. Other signature dishes will include a honey sriracha pork belly with watercress. Lockhart, who comes from Delphine French restaurant in Hollywood and the now closed Cintronelle restaurant in Carmel, developed his appreciation for locally sourced food at the later establishment, where farmers

would arrive at his back door with fresh produce. “There’s such a celebration of food up there,” he said. “I’d actually like to see that in San Diego. I’ve heard there’s a possibility of that happening here.” Lockhart also reserved some panache for his desserts, which will include fresh ice cream, made inhouse daily. A float will include house-made peach soda and vanilla bean ice cream. Another dessert is Lockhart’s warm chocolate cake with peanut butter filling, served on a plate with burnt marshmallow, caramelized bananas and pecan brittle. San Francisco sommelier Emily Wines (her real name) will help stock a transparent wine cooler that greets guests as they enter the restaurant. Hitatus lounge will serve a variety of crostinis, with toppings such as roasted peppers and house-made ricotta cheese, as well as sliders made with char siu, a Chineseflavored barbeque pork. In addition, the 11th floor includes a 1,000 square-foot meeting room that can be used for weddings and other events. The women’s restroom features a balcony overlooking the pool, and windows behind the sink that face out over the ocean and sunset. “It’s going to be a pretty special spot,” Dayl promised.

The guestrooms in the Annex building at La Jolla Cove Suites have been repainted a soft blue with yellow highlights, as part of the recently completed renovations.

Three other La Jolla hotels undergo remodels BY SHELLI DEROBERTIS Several inns in town are spending millions to renovate rooms and achieve fresh looks, and one such lodging has completed an entire building with updates inspired by the Travel Channel reality show “Hotel Impossible.” n La Jolla Cove Suites, built in the 1950s, began its makeover in May after hotel aficionado Anthony Melchiorri and a television crew came to the 110-room hotel and revamped a suite. “I’ve completely renovated 22 suites to match their design,” said owner Krista Baroudi. She said the 1,000-square-foot rooms in the Annex building that overlook the Cove were finished at the end of June, and feature upgrades such as new paint, carpet, beds and bedding.

This view from the roof of the La Valencia Hotel shows its picturesque grounds.

Estancia La Jolla Hotel and Spa is adding a new pool and cabanas as part of its remodel.

From Remodels, A10 Baroudi said she is renovating year round on a small scale. “Each year I try to chip off one thing,” she said. La Jolla Cove Suites is at 1155 Coast Blvd. on two acres of prime La Jolla shoreline. n In honor of its 85th birthday, the La Valencia Hotel is also polishing its look. “They’ve definitely expanded throughout the years, but this is the first major renovation,” said Lindsay Schropp, hotel spokeswoman. La Valencia began the process of updating all of its 112 guest rooms, meeting and event rooms, and its La Sala Lounge, late last year. The remodel is expected to be completed sometime in 2013, Schropp said. However, its legendary Sky Room restaurant has already reopened for business with a new chef and an enhanced wine program. The Mediterranean-influenced architecture and decor of the oceanfront hotel will not change with the multimillion dollar remake. La Valencia Hotel is at 1132 Prospect Ave. n Estancia La Jolla Hotel and Spa at 9700 N. Torrey Pines Road is only 8-yearsold but general manager Terry Buchholz said it was time for a change to its 221 rooms. “It’s just time to freshen and do a bit of an interior facelift,” he said. “We like to freshen up the guest rooms every 5 to 7 years and we’re a bit behind schedule.” Buchholz said all of the hotel’s furniture and fixtures will change, but Estancia will maintain the integrity of the former ranchostyle estate and its equestrian theme. The color spectrum will take on a chic,

Buchholz said the Mustangs & Burros restaurant would expand by 60 additional seats and include a private dining area for 16 guests. The lush landscaping will not be altered. The work is expected to be completed by the end of the year.

From Dr. Cheng, A16 they’re looking for cosmetic results, it will take about a month.” Cheng uses laser treatment only for tiny red veins around people’s noses or legs where the veins are too small to insert a needle. “The laser treatment only takes two or three days to heal, so it’s far less traumatic, but you can’t use a laser on larger veins,” Cheng said, adding she can only treat the veins that a patient currently has, and there is a 10 percent recurrence rate within five years. “It’s not a cure-all for vein problems because people can’t change their genetics, but treatment does take care of what’s there now,” Cheng said. Treatment for hand veins is on the rise, too, according to Cheng. “My patient, who is a hand model, said that people focus on the face for signs of aging, but the real telling of age is on the hands,” she said. A Harvard graduate, Cheng did her surgical training residency at the University California San Francisco.

Sherri Lightner 1st District San Diego City Council Editor’s note: The San Diego City Council voted to 6-1 on July 9 to support a $45.3 million construction project that will remove vehicles from the center of Balboa Park, returning its Plaza de Panama to pedestrians. The plan includes construction of a 405-foot bypass bridge to carry traffic around the center of the park, and building a 797-space underground parking garage where motorists would pay $5 to park for five hours. La Jolla’s city council representative, Sherri Lightner, cast the lone dissenting vote. The Light asked her to write a column explaining her views on the project. We thank her for filing this report.


alboa Park is one of this region’s true treasures. So it’s no wonder that it stirs strong emotions in San Diegans. Those emotions were in clear evidence when the San Diego City Council recently voted on the Plaza de Panama project. As I said in my remarks at City Council, we are united by a common goal: transforming the heart of Balboa Park into a

pedestrian-friendly plaza. It’s the how that has divided us. Leading up to the hearing, I closely studied the environmental document and every scrap of background material, as well as met with any and all parties on the issue. Ultimately, I could not support the project for several reasons including the following: n As a long-time member of the La Jolla Historical Society and a passionate supporter of historic preservation, I also believe there are simpler, less costly solutions to remove cars from the Plaza de Panama — ones that will have less impact on Balboa Park’s historic nature. n I am fundamentally opposed to putting paid parking in the middle of the People’s Park. Free

parking is a great equalizer. It means that any San Diego family — regardless of income or background — has the same opportunity to come and enjoy the park free of charge. While it may be easy to dismiss a $5 charge, I assure that $5 is no small amount to many of San Diego’s working families. n Also, as the people of La Jolla know all too well, paid public parking has a slew of unintended consequences. When you have paid parking next to free parking, people circulate looking for the closest free parking. That not only increases traffic congestion in the area but also the surrounding neighborhoods. It’s why as a community volunteer, I worked so hard with my neighbors to stop paid on-street parking at our local beaches. n In addition, I am extremely concerned that the proposed paid parking garage in Balboa Park might not generate the revenue needed to pay off the $16.5 million bond. The result: Taxpayers will be asked to foot the bill and it would further strain our already tight city budget. While I might not agree with the particulars of the project, I do know we all come to this discussion with one thing in common: an appreciation of Balboa Park and a desire to make a marvelous institution even better. Going forward I hope we can focus on our common goals — not just what divides up — as we prepare for the 2015 Centennial. It will be the celebration of a lifetime.

Story on bicycling dangers in La Jolla draws response Better roads would aid cyclists AND motorists I was interested to read your article on the challenges of cycling in La Jolla. I ride on weekends and a couple of days to work (actually to Hillcrest.) Any discussion of safety for cyclists must include a discussion of road conditions. I lived in New York for 10 years and have to say that I’m appalled at the roads here in La Jolla. New York has the excuse of extra heavy traffic combined with street erosion from cold winters. At least road crews are out every spring trying to repair the damage. Now that I live in beautiful La Jolla, I enjoy cycling year round. I ride in bike lanes and stay on the right side of the road. However, I often find myself having to swerve out into traffic to avoid huge potholes and cracks that would send me hurling to the pavement. Cyclists are forced to make a choice: face a certain header into the asphalt or suffer a potential motor vehicle accident. Maybe it will take a serious collision/fall and lawsuit to make the city look twice. Budgets are tight, but there’s a point where the risk to public safety costs more than doing nothing. And better roads are surely something that both motorists and cyclists can agree on, making it safer for everyone. Civic leaders, where are you on this one? Robyn Stuhr La Jolla

Bicyclists DO have the right-of-way, too I am writing in response to Lorraine YappsCohen’s letter July 20 regarding La Jolla roads being too dangerous for cyclists. As an avid

Our Readers Write cyclist and commuter, I found the letter almost comical — read: “smug self-righteousness … the fact that bicyclists use their own energy to propel themselves does not subjugate others to yield to them on public roads … Bicyclers can choose where they want to practice their selfpowered mode of locomotion, but they should know that drivers have no such discretion.” Really? On the road I weigh about 165 pounds (bike included). I don’t feel like I have much of a chance of “subjugating”’ 4,000-pound vehicles. And, no Lorraine, we don’t expect drivers to yield to us, but we do expect you to at least acknowledge us, ie, not cutting us off in the bike lane and then slamming on your brakes to make that right-hand turn. And for those cyclists who commute (either to and from work, or class, etc.) they don’t have a choice of where to “practice their self-powered mode of locomotion.” Trust me, if they could avoid crowded city streets or torn-up roads they would. Additionally, as far as drivers “having no such discretion” as to where to drive, yes, they do. Drivers could choose to not drive – like I did – and though my morning commute (via bike) is 11 miles one-way and I may have to wake up a bit earlier now to make it on time, I am all the happier because of it. And really Lorraine, no need to be childish: Cyclists’ judgment is “suspect” because they bike La Jolla roads? I feel like most drivers’ judgment is suspect for choosing to wait in 5 o’clock rush-hour traffic for the better part of an hour while I zip by them on my “self-powered mode of locomotion.” Chase Barret La Jolla

Bicyclists often break the rules of the road First thing I would like to know is whether the photographer Phil Dailey took any more photos like the one in the article on the front page of the July 12 issue. If he did, perhaps he witnessed the inevitable: that those two cyclists rode straight through the upcoming stop sign. No matter how one feels about motorists or cyclists, the fact is, in La Jolla, the vast majority of bicyclists completely ignore traffic law when it comes to intersections. I have lived in this town for 25 years and I drive the local roads every day and my long experience has shown that probably 95 percent of cyclists run stop signs and a good 25 percent run red lights (more like 90 percent if you include right turns at red lights). Now, motorists run stop signs routinely as well, and there are a lot of very bad drivers out there. But I rarely see motorists not even slowing down, just zooming through a red light, even at a busy intersection. It is an amazingly selfish act. There is no excuse. If La Jolla wants to get serious about motorists and cycling safety, then it will demand the police department to enforce the law and issue citations to violators. I suspect if a cop followed a cyclist around for five minutes, he or she would witness a dozen traffic violations. The brazenness that almost all cyclists exhibit, even parents with their kids in tow, is simply amazing. They do it because they know they will not be caught. When I’ve asked bicyclists why they run stop signs and red lights, they usually answer with cussing and expletives. I would like to see La Jolla Light do a real story

Glad for seal rope decision A well-deserved congratulation goes to the Coastal Commission on its decision regarding seals and people interacting at the Children’s Pool area in La Jolla. The opposition, albeit heartfelt, need to realize that factual

City of La Jolla will have funding I would like to respond to Dale Duffala’s letter in the July 19 issue about funding to run the City of La Jolla. There is no reason in the world why the City of La Jolla cannot be as well run and as well maintained as the City of Del Mar or the City of Solana Beach. We have the revenue base to maintain the health and welfare of the citizens of La Jolla, as well as to pay the alimony required to the City of San

Diego from our departure. We will have the revenue base to contract out the road repairs, police and fire services. We will be run just like the City of Del Mar and Solana Beach. The Independent La Jolla website does not belong to Independent La Jolla. The website belongs to a resident of La Jolla. Subsequently ILJ cannot maintain it the way it should be maintained. However, once the City of La Jolla is established, it will have its own website, the and will be maintained by professional city staff. If Mr. Duffala is going to blame me for our new City going bankrupt, I hope he will give me all the credit when it does not. Donna C. Aprea Secretary of Independent La Jolla


Laurie Hancock Waddy 1923 – 2012

Laurie Hancock Waddy disproved the theory that women can’t make it in a man’s world. She excelled in the business world and in the arts. Laurie was born on June 18, 1923, on the family farm in Reiner Township, Pennington County, MN, the daughter of Soren and Elga (Sigerud) Hermanson. She grew up with her six siblings in a very close-knit family with simple and deep values, one of which was a boundless desire to learn. This was fostered by her father, an immigrant from Tromso, Norway, who, in addition to building their home and farming the land, read the newspaper every day cover to cover. She attended school in a one-room schoolhouse. In order to attend high school in Thief River Falls, MN, that was 30 miles from home, she had to work for her lodging. She earned many scholastic awards and was chosen by the principal to be his secretary during her senior year. Hard work and natural ability gave her the training for life’s challenges. After high school, Laurie worked for a bank in Thief River. World War II had begun, and her older sister Anne, moved to San Diego. Laurie wanted to

help with the war effort so she moved to San Diego in 1943. Joseph E. Rheim, President of Rohr Aircraft, recognized her extraordinary talents and hired her as his executive secretary, a position she held from 1943-1949. When the war was over, Mr. Rheim introduced her to his friend, John Hancock of Danville and Philadelphia, PA, whom she married in March 1949. John and Laurie built and developed the John Hancock Furniture Manufacturing Company beginning in 1950. Laurie provided a strong and loving foundation for her growing family of four children. She found time to help build and expand St. John’s Episcopal Church School from its original location to its current location in Chula Vista. The expansion included the addition of a middle school. She was also vitally involved in the growth of the company that became the largest rail shipper in San Diego. When John became gravely ill in 1963, Laurie took over the helm of the company. Hers was an indomitable spirit. They moved to their La Jolla oceanfront home to be closer to his doctors along with fulfilling her desire to live by the ocean. In July 1972 she married the second love of her life, The Reverend Lawrence Heber Waddy, the Chaplain of The Bishop’s School in La Jolla, where her daughter Jeanne had graduated and her daughter Julie was attending. She merged her company with Samsonite Corporation and retired in 1975. Laurie became active in the San Diego Symphony Association. She was on the board of directors from 1973-1987 and served as president from 1976-1978.

Laurie put her spark into that organization, initiating the Symphony 1000, a group of leading women in the community, and raised over one million dollars over the next few years. One of her favorite memories during her tenure as president was Danny Kaye leading the Symphony with a fly swatter! This occurred at the 50th Anniversary Gala in 1977. She also was the founding president of Mainly Mozart Festival and the Pops Concert Series. She underwrote the purchase of the concert grand piano as well as musical scholarships for students, including Gustavo Romero. In addition to the Symphony, Laurie was active and supported the City Ballet, the San Diego Opera Guild, the La Jolla branch of the San Diego Symphony, the Freedoms Foundation of Valley Forge, the Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary, Episcopal Community Services and Las Primeras - a chapter of Children’s Home Society. Laurie was also the founding patron of the building fund for Good Samaritan Episcopal Church in University City in 19741975. She endowed the Waddy Scholarship Fund for music and voice training for the Episcopal Diocese of San Diego in 1981. She was honored by Temple Beth Israel Sisterhood as a “Woman of Valor” (Business) in 1967, The Salvation Army as a “Woman of Dedication” (Symphony) in 1979 and the Episcopal Diocese of San Diego with “The Bishop’s Cross”(Humanitarian) in 1997. Laurie impacted the lives of all who worked with her in the community and in the end left us all richer for having known her. Laurie passed away

peacefully in her La Jolla home on Sunday, July 15, 2012, surrounded by her four children and dedicated caregiver, Rufina Desormeaux. Laurie was preceded in death by her parents, five siblings, and the two great loves of her life. She is survived by her brother, Sam of Goodridge, MN; four children, Jeanne (Bill) Larson, John, James (Kristina) and Julie Bennett all of La Jolla; three stepdaughters, Helena Waddy, Nerissa Wilson and Joanna Waddy; five grandchildren, Carl and Will Larson, John, Elizabeth and Michael Bennett; along with several nieces, nephews, greatnieces and nephews. To all of Laurie’s friends and family, thank you for your enduring love. Thank you to Laurie’s exceptional, warm and loving caregivers and San Diego Hospice for their care and support. You are all family to us and we love you. A Celebration of her life will be held on Wednesday, August 8, 2012, at 3:00 pm at St. James-by the-Sea Episcopal Church, La Jolla. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Waddy Fund at St. James or the scholarship fund at The Bishop’s School. Please sign the guest book online at obituaries/lajollalight.

IN MEMORIAM Howard Young 1957 – 2011

While it seems nearly impossible to fathom, we are coming up on a year since we got to bask in the glowing light and magic of Howard Young. Though many La Jolla families

initially sought Howard out as the Math Tutor, none of his students knew him solely as that. Howard immediately became a friend, a confidante, a mentor and a life coach. He guided his students through myriad life journeys and supported them through so many tumultuous and rocky decisions that attend the high school and college years. Last July, we were all caught short when that brilliant light went out. However, thanks to so many loving, and affected families in La Jolla, we gathered together last August to share our remarkable “Howard Stories” and to make sure that this spectacular man received the loving tribute he deserved. Maureen Gibbons and Molly Eldredge hosted a beautiful luncheon where we were able to regale each other with stories and unforgettable experiences. Howard’s magic and humor will never be forgotten, just as his students and friends will always keep his spirit alive. Please sign the guest book online at obituaries/lajollalight.

Part of fall San Diego Film Festival will play in La Jolla By Kathy Day Put a film festival in the hands of people with expertise in filmmaking, business strategies, and marketing and public relations and you’re going to see some changes. So brace yourself for a “new” San Diego Film Festival as the executives of Rancho Santa Fe-based Mantooth Films put their knowledge to work on the board of directors. Dale Strack is chairing the board with his fellow Mantooth executives Tonya Mantooth as executive director and Patti Judd as vice president. They join board president Kevin Leap and vice president Steven Persitza as driving forces behind the 2012 festival, which runs from Sept. 26-30. For the first time, the festival will be held in two parts of the city — the Gaslamp Quarter and La Jolla. The event will showcase the first film festival retrospective of work by Gus Van Sant, who will be at the Museum of Contemporary Art’s Sherwood Auditorium in La Jolla to accept an award on Sept. 27. His work includes “Milk,” “Good Will Hunting,” “Drugstore Cowboy,” “My Own Private Idaho” and “Elephant.”

If you go

■ Sept. 26 • Opening Night premiere party (Reading Theater, FLUXX Nightclub, Gaslamp) • Live broadcasts from the Red Carpet 5 p.m. ■ Sept. 27 • Screenings 3-10 p.m. (Reading Theater, Gaslamp) • Gus Van Sant Tribute Retrospective, Red Carpet Cocktail Reception (Museum of Contemporary Art La Jolla)

Dale Strack, Patti Judd and Tonya Mantooth Once the Mantooth crew got involved, Strack said they knew it would be an interesting project as well as a lot of work. “We began to see exciting opportunities for San Diego,” he said, adding that they felt the festival — now in its 11th year — needed “fresh vision, a lot of passion and direction. That’s what filmmaking is all about for us.” Mantooth, an eight-time Emmy award winner who has produced documentaries and TV campaigns, formed her production company in 2007. A couple of years ago with Strack — her husband, a business strategy expert — and Judd, a brand marketing specialist and long-time colleague, the

team focused its efforts on the film industry and formed Mantooth Films. Their latest project is “Deadtime Stories for Kids,” a television series based on books published by Starscape. They recently announced that Cookie Jar Entertainment will distribute the first season of 26 episodes, with “Grave Secrets” as the pilot episode. Judd said as they looked at the evolution of the San Diego Film Festival and what they would do if they joined the team, there were a number of factors they explored. “How could we benefit the festival, the film industry, the film commission and San Diego” was one point. They also wanted to

expand the focus of what had been “just a San Diego festival” and make it a destination festival like Sundance, Napa or Tribeca. “The fiscal impact on the county is huge,” Judd said, to which Mantooth added, “If the top-line revenue is $3 million, that’s $30 million to the county.” As filmmakers, Mantooth said, they wanted to bring new tracks to the festival. Since her father was a Seminole, she said she has a kinship with the local Native American tribes and wanted to find a way to bring their voices to the festival. “I feel like in Southern California, and especially San Diego, the number of tribes is enormous,” Mantooth continued. “As much as they give in sponsorships in the community, that’s not reciprocated.” They also spotted an opportunity to focus on music and films, be it “music in film or films about music,” and the role of women in films, in part as a way to focus on the talents women bring to the industry to spur studios to pay more attention to them, she said. On top of that, they want to “help bring funding to filmmakers,” Strack added. “We’re working on how to do that now … This is an industry in transition. It’s not as centered on theaters, but more on the TV and computer screen. It is the age of digital.” Judd said their goal is to expand the festival, including the number of films screened — this year they plan to air about 100 films, up 20 percent from a year ago — and audience attendance. “We anticipate a 300 percent increase in attendance this year,” Judd said.

The team is currently screening 1,000 feature films, documentaries, shorts, animated films and international ones, looking for those that best fit the new image they want to project. There will also be panels aimed at industry audiences and film lovers, as well as parties for five days running. They are working with organizers of San Diego’s Hispanic, Asian and Jewish film festivals in an effort to highlight those events, as well as bring them into the mix for the September event. “We’re trying to create a band of brothers of film festivals,” Mantooth said. “When the water rises, it lifts all the boats.” The decision to take part of the festival to La Jolla’s Sherwood Auditorium is a way to expand the reach within San Diego as well as to “grow the community of filmgoers,” she added. It will also “help us bring more people from around the county and Los Angeles and Orange Counties,” Strack said. “La Jolla is known there as an attractive place to visit and Gus is

excited to be staying there.” The addition of La Jolla came with the urging and support of the La Jolla Village Merchants Association, which will cohost the Van Sant gala at the museum. The logistics of pulling off a festival in two areas is tricky, Mantooth said. Some films will screen twice, once in the Gaslamp and once in La Jolla, but they are “trying to marry the films and programs” to each of the venues. For the first year, there will be only one place for the events in La Jolla, where they have received a warm welcome, Strack said, but that they hope to find more opportunities there once the first year is behind them. For the city at large, the event is a chance to impact the economy, “build on San Diego’s strengths and highlight its uniqueness,” he said. “A film festival is an unprecedented opportunity for people to experience films with great stories … to support existing and emerging filmmakers and to interact with producers, directors and writers. Simply put, it should be fun.”

Local triathlete earns Ironman podium spot By Phil Dailey ina Ramos wasn’t much of a swimmer three years ago, but you wouldn’t know if you saw her in the water today. Earlier this month, Ramos not only finished another grueling Ironman triathlon, but this time, she was on the podium, placing third in her division at the event in Zurich, Switzerland. Not bad considering 2.4 miles of the race was a swim. It was only her third Ironman and even she was a bit surprised at her performance. “It was amazing, it was really intense,” Ramos said. For anyone who is unfamiliar with an Ironman race, it consists of a swim (2.4 miles), a bike ride (112 miles) and a run (26.2 miles). Grueling may be an understatement, especially when it comes to the race in Zurich where the bike ride included ascents to nearly 10,000 feet above sea level. For Ramos, though, competing in an Ironman, or an Ironman 70.3 (the shorter version), is not only a race, but a way to live a healthy, fulfilling lifestyle. “I want athletics to be a lifestyle for our children,” Ramos said. “I wanted them to grow up naturally fit because of their lifestyle. Children emulate what they see and training and food nutrition for performance in our family is a lifestyle.” Ramos, along with her husband Kaare Holm, are raising two boys and one daughter here in La Jolla. Their oldest, Steffen, a soon-to-be senior at The Bishop’s School, is the founder of the school’s triathlon club. Though Ramos may have been a bit surprised that she was able to finish in the top 3 of her division, it’s not as if she just started to compete in endurance-type events. “Everyone who does an Ironman comes from something (athletically),” she said. “I


San Diego State picked 5th in preseason poll The Mountain West Conference preseason football poll was released this week and the San Diego State Aztecs were picked fifth by media members who cover the teams. The Aztecs did, however, garner one first-place vote. Newcomers Nevada and Fresno State, which will play their first season in the MWC, were picked Nos. 2 and 3, respectively. Boise State — which plays its last season in the Mountain West before heading to the Big East — was the overwhelming favorite, earning 27 of the 30 first-place votes. The league will be made up of 10 teams this season, as it also added Hawaii to the conference, but saw TCU — winners of the league last season — exit to the Big 12. Here is the poll: 1. Boise State; 2. Nevada; 3. Fresno State; 4. Wyoming, 5. San Diego State; 6. Air Force; 7. Hawaii; 8. Colorado State; 9. UNLV; 10. New Mexico. n For more on the poll, visit

Several Aztecs on ‘Watch Lists’ There are high expectations this season for the San Diego State football team and there are several players who are responsible for that. In total, there are five Aztecs who have been named to a preseason watch list, here they are: n Gavin Escobar, TE, has been named to the John Mackey Award watch list (most outstanding tight end) as well as the Rotary Lombardi Award list (top lineman). n Alec Johnson, C, has been named to the Rimington Trophy list (best center). n Walter Kazee, RB, has been named to the Doak Walker list (best running back). n Colin Lockett, WR, has been named to the Biletnikoff Award list (most outstanding wide receiver). n Leon McFadden, DB, has been named to the Bronko Nagurski Award list (best defensive player) as well as the Jim Thorpe Award list (best defensive back). The Aztecs start the season on the road at Washington on Sept. 1.

After doing a few marathons the one thing I realized is you can’t do the same thing over and over again so I decided to cross train.” From there she started spinning and then the obvious progression for her was to try a triathlon. But not really knowing how to swim, that was a hurdle she would have to get over. Before knowing how to swim, Ramos signed up for a triathlon anyway, knowing if she wanted to do it, she would have to force herself to learn to swim. “My first race, I didn’t even know I would

Shetland All-Stars knocked out of PONY World Series By Tom Murphy La Jolla Youth Baseball a Jolla Youth Baseball says “Let the summer begin!” After 15 post-season tournament games and an equal number of practices, the 6-year old boys on La Jolla’s Shetland All-Star team are finally done for the season.   In fact, they played enough for two seasons. They won the Memorial Day Tournament at Tecolote. They placed second at the PONY Section Tournament and were seeded fourth in the Regional tournament, where they qualified for a berth in the Shetland World Series Tournament in West Covina.   If LJYB learned anything from their first visit to the World Series tournament last season, it was how much stronger the competition was at that level. Apparently not all 6-year old kids are created equal, and they only “juice” those kids up north are taking are apple juice and OJ. Like King Sysyphus pushing his boulder up the mountain, the Shetland team returned to West Covina for pool play on last Thursday, where 72 teams battle for 12 spots in the World Series championship brackets.   La Jolla Shetland drew the host team and top seed West Covina Blue for the opening game, with the locals prevailing 9-2. That set the boys up for a tough double-header on Saturday. Corona won the first game 14-2 that was shortened by the mercy rule.   In 90-degree heat, the coaches broke out the secret weapon for game No. 2: Krispy Kreme doughnuts.    This powerful snack erased any memory of the prior game and fired the boys up for an elimination game against Irvine. La Jolla lost 15-5 and it was officially summer for LJYB at noon on Saturday. Jack Circuit hit some of the hardest balls in the games and really hustled on defense. Walter Birnbaum played solid first base throughout the tournament and rover Jack Stahl was a force at third base with his diving tags on runners.

Holding the Torch


Coaches (left to right) Chris Circuit, Dennis Kim, Walter Birnbaum and Greg Hansen address the Shetland AllStars following their elimination game at the PONY World Series pool play in West Covina last Saturday. The boys played 15 post-season games and had as many practices, which adds up to an entire season of play just for All Stars. Courtesy Hank Hansen was lead-off batter in the line-up and is already a heads-up catcher. Justin Stone contributed to the defensive effort at pitcher and left field. A special shout out to coaches Walter Birnbaum, Greg Hansen, Chris Circuit and Dennis Kim for all they did to get this talented young team to the pinnacle of their young baseball careers. Time to hang up the cleats and put on some flip flops!

Season officially starts for Chargers From Chargers Reports It’s officially football season for the San Diego Chargers. The team began its Fall Camp on Tuesday at Chargers Park in Murphy Canyon with mostly rookies and a few veterans. Starting today the entire team will be at the practice facility, gearing up for their first preseason game Aug. 9 against the Green Bay Packers at Qualcomm Stadium. On Tuesday, though, it was all about the new guys. “These two days were dealing with our young guys getting back into the swing of things before our veterans get here. We (officially) start practice Thursday,” head coach Norv Turner said. “The first two days are instillation and we will start over again on Thursday,” Turner added. “It is an opportunity to hear it again, hear it in the huddle again, and hear it in practice. “Not the volume or numbers but certainly a lot of the main stuff to get them more comfortable.” n For more, go to

Tuesday’s practice was mostly for newcomers, but a few veterans also showed up including quarterback Phillip Rivers. The team will begin fullsquad practices today in preparation for the first preseason game on Aug. 9 against the Green Bay Packers.

But she did, and though swimming is not her forte, it’s hasn’t handicapped her from the rest of the pack. “The question or not of whether or not I could be good depended on how hard was I going to work,” Ramos said. Not only did she place third in Zurich, she also placed third in an Ironman 70.3 earlier this year, an event that was held in Lawrence, Kan. With that top 3 finish, Ramos qualified for the Ironman 70.3 World Championships which will be held in Las Vegas on Sept. 9. Lina Ramos on the podium in Ramos’s ultimate goal, Switzerland. Courtesy however, is to make it to the Ironman World Championships, which take place in Kona, Hawaii. To qualify for the Ironman in Kona, you must win one of the 28 Ironman’s that take place each year all around the world. “For that to happen, the moon, the sun and the stars would have to align,” Ramos said.

As the executive director of the La Jolla Community Center, Nancy Walters is implementing new programs to increase membership. She’s been positioning the center through social media and establishing partnerships with different organizations to ensure its growth. In the past two years, Walter has seen the center through various renovations. She said the front entrance and lobby improvements would be completed by September. Walters was born and raised in San Diego. She studied business at San Nancy Walters Diego State University and minored in Latin American Studies. She also studied Portuguese, coming from a household where Spanish was her first language. Throughout college, Walters devoted her spare time to youth athletics and volunteered as a girls’ basketball coach at Montgomery High School. She coached all levels, including elementary to high school varsity. She also enjoys volunteering to restore Tecolote Canyon. While at SDSU, Walters also worked as program coordinator for four high schools in the Sweetwater Union District, running an afterschool program through the YMCA. By providing tutoring for underprivileged students, and providing classes students could attend after school while retaining high attendance, she saw an increase in the school’s pass/fail rate. What brought you to La Jolla? In May 2010, I was offered a position at the La Jolla Community Center (then Riford Center) and I thought it was a great opportunity to become involved with this wonderful community I heard so much about. The center has so much to offer and it’s a block away from WindanSea Beach, so how could I refuse? What might you add, subtract or improve in the area? I would add “La Jolla Community Center” to the vocabulary of every 92037 resident. The center is such a gem, there’s something for everyone. I wish everyone could enjoy it as much as I do. Who or what inspires you? My No. 1 inspiration will always be my mother, Silvia, and father, Jose. They taught me the value of hard work and have always been supportive of

La Jolla’s lifeguards work 24/7 to keep beaches safe By Pat Sherman nyone who thinks La Jolla’s lifeguards have kickback summer jobs should spend an hour with San Diego Lifeguard Sgt. Mike Cranston and his team as they patrol the beaches at Black’s and La Jolla Shores. The latter gets as many as 25,000 visitors per day on Saturdays and Sundays in the summer. Though some fulltime, senior lifeguard staff can make well over $100,000 a year (when factoring in overtime pay and other benefits), their training and experience make them an invaluable component of the city’s public safety network. “On days when the rip currents are pulling, we could make 100 or more rescues on one beach in one day,” said Cranston, 38, a Native New Zealander who manages 10-12 lifeguards per day at La Jolla Shores. “If we’ve got 15 or 20 staff making 100 rescues, that’s a lot of physical exertion.” To be hired as a seasonal lifeguard, working Memorial Day to Labor Day, one must complete a 500-meter swim in less than 10 minutes before he or she is even allowed to interview for the job. Once they pass the interview, applicants are put through a 10-day lifeguard academy. “We teach them all the basic aspects of lifeguarding — from watching the water to performing rescues with our rescue cans (plastic buoys) and rescue surfboards.” Afterward comes a series of more rigorous physical tests. “We need people who are going to be able to make rescue after rescue and never give up,” Cranston said. One of the most extreme tests requires an applicant to run a mile in soft sand, then swim a mile back in the ocean in under 50 minutes.

Resident writes song to honor Casa de Mañana

La Jolla Cultural Partners

Leslie Miller performs her song ‘Casa de Mañana’ (with lyrics by Fran Hay) for residents, family and friends on July 23 at the retirement home, 849 Coast Blvd. in La Jolla. Brianna Alexander

By Brianna Alexander Leslie Miller, a musician and resident of Casa de Mañana, came up with a melody about three years ago and recently decided to add some lyrics to it and dedicate it to the retirement home, a jewel on Southern California’s coastline. “The song is like Casa,” Leslie said. “Like the building, the song is gentle and graceful.” Leslie is somewhat of a celebrity around La Jolla. Blind since birth, she has lived here since she was 12 years old. She became a professional musician at age 51, producing three CDs. Leslie plays the piano and organ, and sings for all occasions. She even works as a volunteer at Scripps Hospital twice a week where she performs songs like, “My One and Only Love,” for patients awaiting treatment. Leslie insists that not being able to see does not foster her creativity on the piano. “Ray Charles happened to be blind, it helped his career in that people were sort of fascinated with his handicap, but even without it, he would have still been a great musician,” Leslie said. Since she plays by ear, Leslie had to tape the tune on her digital recorder so she could listen to it and eventually commit it to memory.

‘Casa de Mañana’ — The Song ■ To hear the song, visit and enter a search for: Casa de Mañana

History of Casa de Mañana — The Place ■ On July 4, 1924, Isabel Morrison Hopkins opened Hotel Casa de Mañana (House of Tomorrow) with its picturesque arches, tiled roofs and views overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The hotel quickly became the social hub of La Jolla. Accommodations were exquisite and the cuisine world-class. ■ In 1953, Hopkins sold the hotel and soon afterward, Casa de Mañana re-opened as a luxurious retirement community with 108 charter members in residence. Hopkins died three years at age 70. — Casa de Mañana “When you play by ear, all the notes come from your mind,” she said. “I learn melodies by playing them three or four times, and at that point, I have a pretty good idea that I can play them.” She wanted lyrics paired with her tune, so she searched Casa to find someone who would be able to write the words for her without the help of sheet music. Fran Hay, who shares Leslie’s love of Casa, became her songwriter. After Fran composed the words, they were put into Leslie’s Braille machine so that she, too, could learn the lyrics. Leslie also used her

own funds to copyright the song for her beloved retirement home. After the lyrics were written, Debra Moore, executive assistant at Casa de Mañana, found a Ph.D. student at UC San Diego who put Leslie’s notes and Fran’s lyrics onto sheet music. On July 23, residents, family and friends were able to sing along with Leslie at the “Casa de Mañana Song Launch.” “I don’t know of any other retirement home that has its own song. Leslie, why don’t we write songs for other retirement homes?” Fran joked after the celebration.

By Kelley Carlson hile Woody’s is an established name in Newport Beach, it’s new on the scene in Solana Beach. The local restaurant is more upscale than its counterpart to the north, which often draws people straight from the shore, according to manager Rosie Zacharias. Yet it’s still laid-back and family-friendly. A couple on a date may relax in large, cushioned chairs in the wine lounge and sip on a selection from a bottle stored nearby in a floor-to-ceiling rack. The happy hour crowd — many of whom are regulars — can perch on stools in the elevated back bar and watch the restaurant activity or catch the latest sporting event on TV. A family may opt for the spacious center booth in the main dining room, which features wood floors; beach-inspired hues of blue, silver and beige; and walls with the Woody’s whale mascot and ocean-wave patterns. Out on the tiny, heated patio (where dogs are permitted) a group of four can gather around a table covered by a navy-blue umbrella and observe the action along Highway 101. Naturally, weekend nights are busiest at Woody’s Solana Beach. But happy hour is also a big draw, according to Zacharias, with popular half-priced appetizers such as the crispy-fried Bang Bang Shrimp tossed with a spicy aioli sauce, Ahi Sashimi with wasabi and pickled ginger, Filet Mignon Kebabs in a light teriyaki sauce, and Spicy Mussels served with bread to soak up the juices. “Our food is amazing — that’s what brings us to the upscale side of things,” Zacharias said. It’s primarily prepared by Chef Eddie Zamaripa, whom Zacharias described as “open-minded.” “He will go out of his way to make everyone’s experience enjoyable,” she added. Among the entrees he regularly prepares is Caribbean Sea Bass in a rum sauce; the macadamia nut-covered Halibut with papaya salsa; Asian Grilled Salmon with fresh lime juice, garlic and ginger soy sauce; Seared Ahi with a ginger shiitake soy sauce; Herb Marinated Rack of Lamb served with mint pesto; and Lobster Risotto mixed with asparagus, mushrooms and peppers New specials are introduced every two weeks, and every day has a theme.

In her work, Miya Ando creates quiet, abstract, meditative environments. Her postminimalist, hand-dyed aluminum paintings convey her interest in the study of subtraction to the point of purity, simplicity and refinement. Familial history, spiritual and philosophical pursuits deeply inform every aspect of her work. She is influenced through meditation, nature, geometry and the ethos and aesthetics of Zen Reductivism. With a deep appreciation for the dynamic properties of metal and its ability to reflect light, the artist creates works which are centered on transformation, reflection and transcendence.

ExhIbItION: July 16th - August 4th OpENING/ARtISt REcEptION: July 28th, 6-9pm

Metal simultaneously conveys strength and permanence and yet in the same instant can appear delicate, fragile, luminous, soft, and ethereal. the medium becomes both a contradiction and juxtaposition for expressing notions of evanescence, including ideas such as the transitory and ephemeral nature of all things, quietude and the underlying impermanence of everything. Ando has created an exciting new body of work from her new York studio exclusively for this exhibition.

FROM 10 QUESTIONS, B1 anything I chose to do. The La Jolla Community Center board and members are also inspiring. We have such an amazing board and members who continually give back selflessly, not only to the center, but also to the whole community. Ruth Yansick, Glen Rasmussen, Don Hodges (just to name a few), have been instrumental to our success as a community center. They are all volunteers and sometimes spend more time at the center than at their offices. People who give to others over themselves inspire me. I am learning and growing on a daily basis. If you hosted a dinner party for eight, whom (living or deceased) would you invite? I would invite Florence Riford because I would like to talk to her about her vision for the center. She was a brilliant businesswoman. I’m sure I would learn a lot. I would also enjoy the company of Cleopatra, Lucille Ball, Frida Kahlo, Lady Gaga,

Steve Jobs, Chelsea Handler, and of course my other half, Joseph Shepherd. What are your five favorite movies of all time? I have a large collection and plenty of favorites; these include “Shawshank Redemption,” “Pulp Fiction,” “Apocalypto,” “Kill Bill (Part I)” and “Casino.” What is your most-prized possession? I don’t have children yet but I suspect they would be my pride and joy. I do, however, have a wonderful niece, Emma, and godson, Hunter, whom I love dearly. Something I cherish and is tangible is a beautiful ring that my grandmother, Cuquita, gave me. It was her aunt’s and she passed it down to me. I hope to pass that along to my daughter one day. What do you do for fun? I have recently discovered a newfound love for painting, thanks to Canvas Design & Wine taught by Dottie Stanley at the La Jolla

Community Center. I also enjoy any outdoor activities — sports, barbecues, and small dinner parties with family and friends. I love watching movies, and going to concerts and museums, too. What would be your dream vacation? I would want an around-the-world pass that would allow me to visit the tip of South America to the coast of Japan and everything in between. What is your most-marked characteristic? I’ve been told that I am patient, calm, and a good listener. I like to listen and process information before I make a decision about anything. I like to listen to people’s stories, too. If you take the time to listen, what you can learn is fascinating! What is your philosophy of life? Be happy. Do what you love and be open to learning. Always keep your mind open to new ideas.

Paired with Champagne and California bubbles. n Aug. 9: “Under the Tuscan Sun” (2003) Frances Mayes (Diane Lane) is a 35-year-old writer who has just gone through a divorce that has left her with terminal writer’s block.

Paired with vino toscano. n Aug. 16: “Murder on the Orient Express” (1974) In 1934, a trainful of suspects and one murder victim make the trip from Istanbul to Calais especially interesting.

Redgrave. Paired with vino español. n Aug. 23: “Sabrina” (1954) Audrey Hepburn stars as Sabrina, an impressionable chauffeur’s daughter. Sabrina is mad about David Larabee (William Holden), a notorious playboy, but is whisked away to France by her father, only to return a sophisticated lady of fashion.

His brother, Linus Humphrey Bogart), however, seeks to enhance the family’s wealth by marrying him off to an heiress and begins to pursue Sabrina himself to divert her from David’s intentions. Paired with vin français.

What you didn’t know about Marilyn, Jack and Tony in Coronado By David L. Coddon If you want someone to think you’ve been living in a cave, just tell him, “You know what? ‘Some Like It Hot’ was filmed at the Hotel del Coronado!” Then expect a withering look. It may be overstating it to say that everyone knows Billy Wilder’s 1959 comedy, voted the greatest of all time by the American Film Institute and starring Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis (the latter two in drag), also starred the Hotel Del. But as San Diego movie history goes, it’s common knowledge. But merely knowing that “Some Like It Hot” featured the Hotel del Coronado in the wacky tale of two musicians on the run from the mob is not enough. The story of Marilyn, Jack and Tony at the Del has a few twists and turns you may not know. Hotel Del historian Christine Donovan passed on some inside info about the “Some Like It Hot” production. For example, each of the stars brought their true loves with them to the shoot: In Monroe’s case, her husband, playwright Arthur Miller; Curtis was accompanied by his wife, actress Janet Leigh; and Lemmon’s wife-to-be, Felicia Farr, was on hand. Another tid-

In May, the U.S. Postal Service issued a Billy Wilder stamp that shows the director, Marilyn Monroe and the Del on it. bit: the wildly popular Monroe was guarded throughout the production by Coronado police officers. Given the picturesque Del, a lot of people wonder why Wilder shot the film in black and white. The answer: the director feared that Lemmon’s and Curtis’ female makeup would not translate well to color. This in spite of the fact that Monroe had a clause in her contract that insisted all her films be shot in color. Speaking of female impersonation, an expert in the art was retained by Wilder to teach Lemmon and Curtis how to walk in high-heeled shoes. Lemmon reportedly refused the help, wanting his character, “Jerry/aka Daphne,” to look like a man who didn’t know how to walk in women’s shoes.

Although “Some Like It Hot” sizzled at the 1959 Golden Globe awards, with Monroe, Lemmon and the film all taking home trophies, the movie won only one Oscar, and that was in a category that no longer exists: Best Black and White Costume Design. If “Some Like It Hot” didn’t impress the Motion Picture Academy, it was a hit with fans, who still cherish it, and with those at the Hotel del Coronado. “It’s very much a part of our history for a couple of reasons,” said historian Donovan. “For one thing, the movie really showcases the hotel and its architecture. Lots of people are exposed to the Del through the movie without having ever seen the hotel. I always think of it as the fourth character of the film. “The architecture, which is so showcased in the film, is so appealing and inviting. You look at it and it’s like ‘This is the place to have some fun!’” While the Hotel Del as it is today is clearly recognizable in “Some Like It Hot,” there’s one major difference. The movie shows the hotel’s original two front entrances – one was intended for men and women, the other strictly for “unaccompanied” ladies. How times have changed.

As a professional San Diego money manager I am often asked the question, “How do you think the market will do in the next few months?” (Insert days, weeks, or whatever other short-term time frame you want). While this certainly is an interesting question, and one many financial pundits attempt to answer daily for their enamored audience, I would argue that it is the wrong way to learn about smart investments. The following questions may not be as exciting as those concerning the latest dire headlines or the meaning of hundred point swings in the Dow – but they do highlight issues that merit a good portion of your investing-related time. Do my investments match my time horizon? The number one rule in investing (and one that many investors break) is to ensure you are invested in the right asset class for your end goal. Need money to pay for a fancy dinner next week? Cash is the place to be. Have a goal of being sufficiently wealthy in 15 years to enjoy a blissful retirement? Cash could be your enemy as it loses money after inflation and taxes each year. In this case, equities and other long-term investments can serve you well. Make sure your investments are consistent with the time frame when you will need the money back. Thinking ahead in this manner will help you avoid the vast majority of errors investors make in their financial program. Am I properly diversified? Are you sitting on the next Enron, General Motors or Citi Group -- a purportedly indestructible company that saw its stock decline 90% or more in a matter of months? Don’t let those rare but periodic stock blow-ups cause permanent damage to your financial picture. Diversify across industries, market caps, and geographical regions. Do I have time to manage my own portfolio or should I hire a professional? I could only imagine the results I would get if I tried to be a part-time surgeon or attorney. Yet many investors believe that they can do it themselves when it comes to investing. This often leads to frustration, time spent away from family, and inferior returns. Ask yourself if you might be better served to work with a professional who can relieve you of the day-to-day stresses often associated with investing. Just because news is in your face does not mean it is relevant. Don’t let the headlines run your life: make sure you are asking the right questions when it comes to your hard earned money.

Ninety-eight years ago the conflict opened with the Austro-Hungarian invasion of Serbia, followed by the German invasion of Belgium, Luxembourg and France, and a Russian attack against Germany. The war lasted until Nov. 11, 1918. The Allied victory marked the end of the German, Russian, Ottoman, and Austro-Hungarian empires, the formation of new countries in Europe and the Middle East, the transfer of German colonies and regions of the former Ottoman Empire to other powers, and the establishment of the 10:51:36 AM League of Nations. — wikipedia

FROM LIFEGUARDS, B1 Swimming in choppy ocean water requires more endurance than swimming in a pool, Cranston noted. While swimming toward a victim, a lifeguard must keep his or her eyes above the water at all times. “If you’re swimming toward the victim and you put your head down, you could look up and the victim’s gone,” he said. “It takes a lot more upper body strength to keep your head up out of the water.” Permanent lifeguards also must learn to endure waters as cold as 50 degrees during the winter, as well as 10- to- 30-foot surf. Though they may wear wetsuits while training, they must wear a standard bathing suit when they test. “When we’re out here guarding, we don’t have time to stop and put a wet suit on,” Cranston said. La Jollan Elizabeth Palmer, who has worked as a summer lifeguard since 1995, has taken part in mass rescues, where a rip current pulls 20 to 25 people out to sea at one time. “We’ve had situations where we’ve deployed every single lifeguard off La Jolla Shores beach into a mass rescue,” she said. “We have to have our units backfill and send people

Lifeguards often use surfboards to bring an injured or distressed swimmer back to shore. Photos by Pat Sherman out to staff the towers.” Joe Maloney, who is in his probationary first year as a permanent lifeguard at La Jolla Shores, recalled a recent rescue on his watch at Muscle Rock, in which the victim required three shocks with a defibrillator and more than 12 minutes of CPR. “They airlifted him and he’s alive and in ICU right now,” he said. “The medical director for the city of San Diego is calling it a miracle, because he was so far from where we could respond to, but the helicopter got there, we loaded him up and sent him off.” Maloney said freedivers are often trapped in rip currents

and rough, rocky surf near the Children’s Pool — and there is never a shortage of capsized kayaker rescues near La Jolla’s sea caves. “A set will come in and catch them off guard,” Maloney said. “We’ll see them from up in the observation tower or they’ll notify us on the radio and we’ll launch a jet ski and go pick them up and tow their kayak.” Advanced training Permanent lifeguards are required to attend a five-week academy that involves training in high-angle cliff rescue, which is frequently utilized at Torrey Pines and Sunset Cliffs.

“When someone’s stuck or fallen, it’s the lifeguards that go to get them,” said Cranston, noting a call earlier this year in which a paraglider crashed into a bluff near La Jolla Farms and died on impact. “We had to go through people’s backyards and climb over fences just to access the cliff,” Cranston said. “Then when had about 200 yards of bluff to get through before we could get to the edge where the victim was.” Though lifeguards sometimes call for a helicopter to airlift a victim to safety, they are not used for cliff-bound paragliders, as the gust from the blades could lift a glider’s sail, potentially causing them to dislodge and plunge down the cliff. Permanent lifeguards are also trained as peace officers, possessing a badge and the power to write citations or make arrests, if necessary. They also have a higher level of emergency medical technician (EMT) training, drive boats and jet skis, and assist with river rescues throughout the county. Lifeguards must also be able to jump safely from great heights. One of their tests typically includes a plunge

Each year, fulltime lifeguards are required to complete additional days of training, plus three days dedicated to cliff rescue. San Diego Lifeguard Service maintains a heavy equipment cliff rescue vehicle and crane out of its Mission Bay station. “It’s not as simple as grabbing a rope and pulling up 400 pounds of people,” Cranston said. “We do more cliff rescues than almost any

We want all of our staff to be able to do any of the roles.” Cranston said guards at The Shores frequently rescue long-distance swimmers from La Jolla Cove who are having a medical emergency, as well as some of the ubiquitous scuba divers at The Shores. All permanent guards and some seasonal guards receive scuba rescue training. “This is probably the main beach in San Diego County for responding to scuba divers, and unfortunately we do get a handful that are fatalities every year,” Cranston said.

“People forget their training and get into some hairy situations.” There are only about three or four female fulltime lifeguards at present, who receive salary and benefits, despite a lawsuit last year in which one of San Diego’s top female swimmers won $100,000 in a discrimination case for being denied a promotion after a decade on the job. “We have an outreach program because we want to get a more diverse workforce,” Cranston said. “It’s healthy to have more diversity so we go out to different job fairs, even starting off in schools to try and get people to

come to the beach and see what we do. Hopefully, we’ll attract some of them to become lifeguards.” Lifeguards must be at least 18 years of age. Though there is no maximum age at which one can join the service, the retirement age, as with other public safety employees, is usually in the mid-50s. “It’s a very physical job, and it’s not like we’re going to be able to do this forever,” said Cranston, though adding, “some of our older lifeguards who are in their 50s are in incredible shape. We’re expected to maintain a certain level of fitness.” Though rescues at The Shores are fairly straightforward, lifeguards have their work cut out for them when rescuing people in the waters near La Jolla’s craggy reefs, where there is no beach to return them to. “You’ve got to figure out how to get your victim back to safety again — and that could involve an incredibly long swim to one of the beaches, or maybe a swim out to the ocean to be picked up by a rescue boat,” Cranston said. “I start to get adrenalized and amped up just talking about it.”

Gotthelf Gallery friends host double art extravaganza By Lonnie Burstein Hewitt n July 15, a sunny Sunday afternoon, dozens of supporters of the Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center’s Gotthelf Art Gallery flocked to The Seville on Genter Street to eat, drink, socialize, and view the private collections of two art-loving couples who are Friends of the Gallery. Karen Fox and Harvey Ruben showed off their array of eye-popping funk art, while Iris and George Goodman combined traditional African art with a selection of Dr. Goodman’s own paintings from the early 1940s to the present. A kickoff for the upcoming season at the small but impressive Gotthelf, the event is an annual treat for gallery underwriters that offers an inside look at local art collections not normally on public display. “This year’s two collections couldn’t be more different,” said gallery coordinator Ilene Tatro. “It just shows how much variety is really out there.” The Gotthelf’s 2012-2013 season will begin with the Sept. 12 opening of “The Other Side of the Coin: Russian Roots on San Diego Soil,” an exhibit of local Russian-born artists who have made San Diego their second home and art their second career. For more about coming attractions or to become a Friend of the Gallery, visit or call (858) 362-1154.

Stock trader swaps his market data for paintbrush and canvas By Will Bowen “From Wall Street to Wall Street! Yeah, that’s me. Ron Spelman … with one ‘L’... I started off working as a trader in the stock market on Wall Street in New York City and I ended up on Wall Street in La Jolla selling municipal bonds. I sold bonds for 25 years. But now I paint. It’s my obsession, my addiction, my new life challenge. “Art was on my back burner all those years because of my business pursuits, but now I am living my dream. And you know what? I may be getting older, but I am getting better!” Spelman, a member of the La Jolla Art Association, past president of the San Diego Portrait Society, and current president of the Rancho Santa Fe Art Guild, opened his latest art show last week at the Guild’s gallery in Rancho Santa Fe. The show, which will run for eight weeks to Sept. 8, is titled, “From Eye To Heart To Hand,” and consists of 12 of Spelman’s paintings. Each one showcases his “painterly” approach to the depiction of people, his forte.

Spelman said he grew up one of eight children in a struggling tumultuous Irish Catholic family on Long Island. His mother was studying to be a nun in the convent when she met his father and married him. She wanted her son, Ron, who was an altar boy, to be a priest. Spelman’s father, who worked on Wall Street, bombed out during the Great Depression and never found his way back to business success, spending the remainder of his life trying to support his family by working menial jobs. “Now my great-grandfather, Dennis Spelman, he was a different story. He came over from Ireland in the 1850s and ended up fighting for the North in the Civil War, where he rose from the rank

of private to that of captain by the war’s end.” Spelman started his own career as a clerk working across from the New York Stock Exchange. “I was fascinated just to talk to these people who were daily making such big decisions about stocks. I wanted to be just like them,” he said. Spelman eventually landed a job as a trader on the stock exchange, which he says was, “The most exciting time of my life.” But when his boss had a stroke and closed the company, Spelman was forced to find another position, this time as a municipal bonds salesman, the skill he eventually brought out to La Jolla. “I was in business here in La Jolla for 14 years, from 1972 to 1986. The 1980s

Ron Spelman with his ‘Sunshine at the Beach’ painting. were particularly good to me. But I thought, I don’t want to die rich but unfulfilled. I need to pursue my art, which is a gift that I know I have, and which I can develop through hard work.” It was a risk to take up art fulltime, but also an opportunity, and I believe that when an opportunity arises, you should jump all over it and work your tail off. “Everywhere I go, I carry a notebook to write down ideas and do sketching. It’s the only way you can improve and develop. I have hundreds of such notebooks, which I have filled up.” Spelman is not out to

change the world or how we see the world or make social commentary with his art. He said he is simply focused on the execution of superior technique and skill. ”I just want to be a great painter. I have a driving ambition to be good. It’s all I think about these days. I just want to draw and paint all the time. It’s hard to express how good it feels when you nail it and do a good painting, and people see that and express their appreciation. I just feel utterly elated.” For his next art project, Spelman has set himself the daunting task of doing one portrait painting a day for

50 days in the row. Each new painting will be placed on Facebook where friends and followers can view it. “I call this project, ‘Shades of Gray.’ I am only using two colors — black and white. My purpose is to develop my ability to see the planes of the face and what artists call ‘value,’ which is the gradation from light to dark that you see in each person’s countenance.” Besides his ambition and hard work ethic, the thing that sets Spelman apart is his exemplary attitude. “Some artists think that as they get older and pass their prime, they loose their ability; their hand shakes or their eyes aren’t as good. But not me. My hand is steady and I see better than ever. Maybe I can’t run or walk as fast as when I was young, but I am developing into a better painter ever day. “I go to bed at night thinking tomorrow is going to be a better day. I look forward to tomorrow because tomorrow I will be a better painter and I will paint a better picture. And you can take that to the bank!”

What I wouldn’t give for a rat’s patootie

Let Inga tell you ...


f you’ve noticed you have fewer rats at your place this year, it’s because they all moved to my house. In the several decades I’ve lived here, there are years when we don’t see even one, and others, like this year, when they’re making their pestilent presence really obvious. Unfortunately (at least as far as the rodential population is concerned), we have a prolific orange tree, a rat’s food of choice. Walking outside in the morning, our brick walkway was littered with hollowed out orange rinds, the remnants of the previous night’s rat-chanalia. And this, by the way, is one of my biggest issues with them: How hard would it be to just roll the rinds into the bushes and let them quietly biodegrade? I’m not an un-

reasonable person. Eating dinner on our patio in the evening, Olof and I watched the rats scurrying back and forth along the top of our six-foot wrought-iron pool fence and escaping into the orange tree. At one point, it occurred to us that it could actually be the same three rats running around in an endless circle just to annoy us while their buddies filmed it for rat reality TV. But this is our outdoor entertaining season. You’re trying to have a classy dinner party and one of your guests says, “Um, I think I just saw a rat.” It’s tempting to deny it with a breezy, “No more wine for you!” but in the end, we just had to admit defeat and turn our furry friends into a party game. “Person who sees the most rats gets an extra dessert!” After a couple more glasses of wine, everybody kind of got into it. Or maybe they’re just drinking more because they can’t believe they’re at a La Jolla dinner party counting rats. Over the years, we’ve

tried pretty much every ratridding tactic out there, from the pricey Pest Control folks who trap them humanely and maintain that they drive the rats out to the country and let them go, to the finger-breaking steel spring traps (I’m way too much of a klutz, never mind pet danger) to the inhumane rat poison that we use now. I admit that on the Judgment Day, there will be a lot of beady-eyed creatures squeaking “Yes, that’s her!” but I did ask them nicely to go away. Of course, our fundamental problem is that we have a rat-topia lot, not only the orange tree, but a lot of lush foliage that we’re genuinely attached to. But this year, for the first time, we are thinking of actually removing all the oranges from the tree. The rat invasion has gotten totally out of hand. In a previous Bad Rat Year (a term that will never cross

the lips of the La Jolla Chamber of Commerce), I was on a first-name basis with the Vector Control folks who taught me how to fill the centers of 18-inch-long, 4-inch diameter sections of PVC pipe with rat poison (so the neighborhood cats can’t get to it), and secret them around the yard. In recent years this has become problematical in itself. We are frequently visited by tiny grandchildren and the everinquisitive Winston the Wonder Dog for whom contact with rat poison would be a very bad thing. Because Winston was here for five weeks in May and early June, I didn’t get a chance to do my Spring Rat Offensive. The rats maliciously took advantage. A complicating factor is that Winston has recently been dropped off for another of his indeterminate visits. (We

always fear that our son and daughter-in-law have moved and left a) Winston here, and b) no forwarding address.) Normally, I would never have rat baits out when Winston is around but this is such a crisis that we’ve just put the baited PVC pipes up higher. While most of the rats die their cruel deaths out of our sight, some get their ultimate revenge on us by succumbing on our patio. My son, Henri, sent me an e-mail the other day: “Mom — please be careful that Winston is not eating dead rats.” Mom to Henri: “Believe me, I am incredibly careful that Winston is not consuming deceased rodentia. There is nothing less appetizing than bagging up dead rats before breakfast. When you come back to get Winston (hint hint), I will give you rat duty for the weekend.” Meanwhile, Winston, selfappointed Vanquisher of the Furry Peril, likes to hang out near the orange tree and bark at it, scurrying rats along the pool fence. Alas, it doesn’t actually get rid of them, but it’s very

entertaining to watch. We’d really like to be more humane in our e-ratication efforts, but there would not be enough alcohol on the planet to make up for spending our weekends driving rats out into the country. But what else would we do with them? (Well, there IS that one neighbor …) In the meantime, we’ve staged a major anti-rat campaign: extensive pruning, more baits, carpet tack strips on top of the pool fence, removal of bird feeders. In order to assess our success, we have posted a chart on our refrigerator documenting the dramatically lessening numbers (yesterday none!) of hollowed-out orange rinds on the bricks each morning. It’s all very scientific. Fewer rinds, fewer rats. Unless, of course, they’re hiding the rinds just to toy with us. We wouldn’t put it past them. — Look for La Jolla resident Inga’s lighthearted looks at life every other week in La Jolla Light. Reach her by e-mail at

Kitchen Shrink By Catharine L. Kaufman “We are living in a world today where lemonade is made from artificial flavors and furniture polish is made from real lemons.” — Alfred E. Newman


ast week’s “A Berry Good Night,” the third annual farm-totable extravaganza in La Jolla, was like Cirque du Soleil meets “Top Chef” at the organic farmers market along the sweeping Pacific. The locavore summer soiree was directed, produced and graciously hosted by sustainable-food activist and owner of Cups Culinary, Michelle Lerach, at her jawdroppingly gorgeous estate — complete with organic orchards and pastureroaming chickens. The attendee-list read like a Who’s Who of kindred spirits, including two dozen socially-conscious local chefs, dedicated organic farmers, ranchers, purveyors, artisans, winemakers, brewers and kitschy mixologists breaking GMO-free bread together. Every scrumptious ingredient in the feast — reminiscent of a Romanesque food and wine orgy —was sourced within 100 miles of San Diego, and every dish in keeping with the “berry” theme had a mother lode of antioxidant-rich raspberries,

blueberries, blackberries and strawberries enlivening sweet and savory concoctions. Keep these local gems on your organic radar screen: n Stehly Farms, northeast of Escondido, grows 40 classic SoCal crops of Valencia oranges, Meyer lemons and Haas avocadoes, along with exotics like Dragon fruit. n Be Wise Ranch, in the Rancho Bernardo/Escondido neighborhoods, is headed by pioneer organic farmer Bill Brammer, who has been growing pesticide-free produce since 1977. Be Wise offers 50 varieties of produce from Technicolor heirloom tomatoes and fresh herbs to strawberries, pluots and cherries so sweet they could be charged with impersonating candy. n Suzie’s Farm, in south Imperial Beach, grows 100 different varieties of mostly veggies; their summer calling card: 20 varieties of peppers. n Seabreeze Organic Farm, in south Carmel Valley, has been growing a bounty of organic crops since 1988 from avocados to zucchini, organic coffee, raw honey and edible petals. Be Wise, Suzie’s and Seabreeze are also members of the Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) movement, delivering weekly organic goodie baskets to designated pick-up points or directly to households throughout San Diego. n Chino Farms, in Rancho Santa Fe, provides both celebrity and armchair chefs bountiful beauts of Jerusalem artichokes, micro greens, diminutive decorative squashes, signature strawberries and assorted tree fruits.

n SonRise Ranch produces humanely-raised livestock, like grass-fed cattle, and free-range chicks and pigs without hormonal or antibiotic intervention. You can bring home their bacon from various farmers markets around town. n Other sociallyconscious ranchers include Brandt Beef, Shelton Farms and TAJ Farms. n San Diego-based Catalina Offshore Products distributes a treasure trove of oceanic treats from SoCal and Baja fishermen, including jumbo scallops, lobster, masago and stone crab. The all-star menu The evening’s 11-course international menu, coordinated by Chef Jesus Gonzalez from Cups Culinary, included Girard Gourmet’s blueberry foccaccio bread dipped in liquid gold from Temecula Olive Oil; oxtail ramen with strawberries (a collaboration of Chefs Joe Magnanelli and Ayurvedic guru Jeff Gage); spicy-grilled seitan with Korean-style barbecue (Sea Rocket Bistro Chef Tommy Fraioli and Brooklyn Girl’s Tyler Thrasher); tamale with carnitas and mixed berry pico de gallo (Chef Isabel Cruz of Barrio Star); rabbit with carbonated boysenberries (Sea Rocket’s Chad White and Beaumont Eatery’s George Morris); and for your just desserts, cacaofrosted raw brownies with warm berry galette by rawfood guru Joy Houston; washed down with a smooth cup of organic jo by Revolution Roasters.

La Jolla is home, and like all homes, it needs maintenance and TLC. Mere tax dollars aren’t enough. Together, we can pool our resources to keep La Jolla the jewel that it is. The La Jolla Community Foundation (LJCF) was created to enrich the environmental, social and cultural experience of La Jolla. So far, we have funded the fire pits along the Shores, commissioned world-class murals around town, repaired the “Teardrop” entrance on La Jolla Parkway, created educational coastal signage, and are now developing a plan to maintain the Village on an ongoing basis. Membership is open to all La Jollans who care. Join the LJCF and have a voice in selecting annual grant recipients – making a difference here, at home, where you live. Please join us. Annual local projects will receive 75% of your contribution and the other remaining 25% will go into a permanent endowment. To make a contribution, please go to and click on GET INVOLVED. Become a member today!

La Jolla realtor joins area Aztecs to fight epilepsy

The Go Aztecs team was the largest group of volunteers at the event. Carlos Gutierrez, a Prudential California Realty agent in the La Jolla office, recently joined forces with the Go Aztecs team at Sharon’s Ride.Run.Walk, an event created to support the Epilepsy Foundation of San Diego County. “It’s very moving to see the impact that people can have when they unite together,” he said. “This was an incredibly wonderful and uplifting event, full of supportive and enthusiastic people.” Approximately 2,500 people attended the event that raised more than $200,000 to benefit the fight against epilepsy. Participants had the opportunity to enter a 5K run/walk or a 15-mile bike ride, beginning at DeAnza Cove. The event culminated in a bayside picnic and beach party, complete with live music, contest prizes and entertainment, as well as food from Phil’s BBQ and Pat & Oscar’s. With 114 members supporting the cause, the Go Aztecs team was the largest group of

volunteers at the event. Rita Hallak organized the team. She is a spokesperson for the foundation, as well as San Diego State University’s Vice President of Public Affairs for the Health Communication Student Organization. She suffered from the disease since childhood but has been seizure free since undergoing surgery one year ago. “Rita’s efforts to help people understand this disease and eliminate the stigmas associated with it have been a source of inspiration for me,” Gutierrez said. Gutierrez was SDSU’s Monty Montezuma, and later the Aztec Warrior, for 13 years. Known for his community involvement and dedication to the goals of his clients, he ranked in the top 10 for individual agents for his sales in 2011, out of Prudential’s 1,300 agents in San Diego County. Gutierrez can be contacted at (858) 8648741,, or
