By KAThy DAy As the final bills straggle in for the July 4th fireworks, the La Jolla Community Fireworks Foundation director coordinating the effort says they still face court dates that could determine the program’s fate. Just last week, they got the report about the postevent cleanup required as a condition of their $1,452 permit from the Regional Water Quality Control Board, said Deborah Marengo, who has been one of the leaders of the fireworks group since 2009 when George Hauer decided to give up his 24-year role of putting on the show.

The 3rd annual Little Warriors Surf Camp took place this week at La Jolla Shores, a camp for children of wounded or deployed military personnel. The second session of the camp concludes today, with two more scheduled for August. In total, the event hosts 100 children who not only learn to surf, but get to take home a surfboard provided by INT Softboards.

Chronicling Qualcomm

Irwin Jacobs lectures at The Riford Center

Irwin Jacobs, right, is introduced by Don Breitenburg. SuSan DeMaggio

By SuSAN DeMAggIo He’s the man … … to San Diegans for co-founding the lucrative Qualcomm in their city; … to the world for helping to lay the foundation for mobile communications; … to the guests who came out Monday night to hear him discuss his illustrious career as part of the Riford Center’s “Distinguished Speakers Series.” Dr. Irwin Jacobs, 78, spoke for more than an hour, chronicling his life from the son of restaurateurs in New Bedford,

Mass., to MIT grad student in electrical engineering, college professor, chairman of Qualcomm and chair of the board of trustees of the Salk Institute. In 2010, Jacobs was listed as No. 828 on Forbes’s annual list of the World’s Top Billionaires. He ended his presentation taking questions from the crowd and then stayed to visit with well-wishers who kept him engaged. Had his wife Joan been there (she was not due to a concurrent commitment) she

A total of 21 pounds of pyrotechnic debris was collected after the show — 13 pounds of which were dry and 8 pounds, wet — she said last week, adding that’s just one matter they’re dealing with. The group is due in court Aug. 31 to review Judge Linda Quinn’s 90-day stay of her ruling that the city must follow state environmental laws when issuing permits for fireworks shows and other special events. The decision came in a lawsuit filed by environmental lawyer Marco Gonzalez. He represents the Coastal Environmental Rights

La Jolla Historical Society offers walking tour By ElizaBEth SchnEidEr For many residents, the landmarks of La Jolla are just a part of the background of their daily lives. But for Martie Rice and the other docents of the La Jolla Historical Society, the story behind these iconic buildings is worth retelling. The Society has recently created a walking tour of the Village, designed to highlight both its most famous sights and some lesser-known historical locations. “The feedback so far has been really positive,” said Rice, one of three docents who lead the tours. “There are just all these things that people have no idea about.” The tours, which take place every other Saturday morning, tell the story of a very different La Jolla than the one we know today. Docents highlight 17 locations throughout the village — from the Cave Shop (La Jolla’s oldest business) to classic cottages — which date back to a time when much of the area was simply undeveloped farmland. “It’s interesting to learn about these buildings that we pass

by all the time and don’t even give a second glance,” said Estelle Ebert, a participant in last Saturday’s tour. For Rice, however, there is more to these tours than simple architectural history. “There’s a lot (in the tour) about the amazing contribution that Ellen Scripps made, and what a different place it would have been without her,” she said. The Scripps family, who funded much of La Jolla’s early

development, is brought to life through a series of photos and humorous anecdotes sprinkled throughout the tour. By capping the tour at 15 participants and not using any amplification, the guides create a informal atmosphere that prompts questions and discussions. For the same reason however, reservations are required for the popular tours. Information about reservations and the Society in general can be found at

city nEwS SErvicE UCSD Medical Center was named the best hospital in San Diego County in rankings released recently by U.S. News & World Report. Scripps Memorial Hospital-La Jolla was named the No. 2 hospital, and Scripps Mercy Hospital was third, followed by Sharp Memorial Hospital and Scripps Memorial Hospital-Encinitas. Only UCSD and Scripps La Jolla made it into the national rankings. UCSD Medical Center was rated 16th in the nation in pulmonology, 19th in psychiatry and 25th in diabetes/endocrinology. Scripps La Jolla was 45th in cardiology/heart surgery. “To be recognized among the very best in the nation — as

well as in our community — is an honor we have enjoyed for nearly two decades,” said Dr. David Brenner, vice chancellor for Health Sciences and dean of the School of Medicine at UC San Diego. ``We take seriously our mission to provide the very best in health care and research, the kind only an academic health system can provide.’’ The 22nd annual Best Hospitals issue rated hospitals in 16 high-stakes medical specialties, from heart care to diabetes and neurology. According to the magazine, physicians at the highly ranked facilities see far more patients with critical needs than do doctors at many community hospitals. As a result, they have more experience and understand better how to deliver quality care.

Treasure in trash — the beauty of sea glass Natural La Jolla

By Kelly Stewart

With sunny warm temperatures and cool Pacific waters, people love to go to the beach. Here is where you’ll find swimmers, sunbathers and surfers, but there’s another kind of beach lover that you’ll see — the beachcomber. These people wander slowly along the wrack line, heads down, intensely scrutinizing what the tide has brought in. They bend occasionally to pick something up, assessing whether or not it’s a treasure worth keeping.

When I’m beachcombing, I spend a lot of time picking up plastic so it doesn’t make its way into the ocean where it might be mistaken for food by marine creatures, but I have another reason for combing the beaches so thoroughly — sea glass. Tumbled by the waves and sand for a decade or more, sea glass is a diminishing resource since we no longer dump our glass garbage at sea or off the end of a pier. Colors vary by where you are in the world and by what type of glass was thrown away. Brown and green are the most commonly found colors, those pieces began life as beer bottles. White is also very common and comes from soda or juice bottles. In La Jolla I find very tiny pebbles of glass, of all different pastel shades. In St. Croix, in the U.S. Virgin Islands, where I am now and where I do field work during the summer, I can snorkel for hours

tiny pieces of tile, pottery and china that have been tumbling in the surf for years.

in the clear Caribbean water searching for the perfect gem. Bits of tile and pottery are my favorites because I like to imagine the history of the plate or pot before it went into the sea. Broken china and porcelain plates were often used as ballast in ships that crossed the Atlantic during the sugar plantation days of the 18th and 19th centuries. Festivals and craft shows have sprung up around the sea glass resource and the hobby constantly draws more devotees. Although sea glass may be manufactured by tumbling broken glass in a rock tumbler or by washing it in an acid bath (this is the sea glass you find at craft stores), purists insist on collecting it from the beach because each piece is unique and looking for it is so much fun. Kelly Stewart, Ph.D. is a postdoc with NOAA’s Southwest Fisheries Science Center. Contact her at

a collection of sea glass. Blue is quite rare and pieces tend to be smaller than pieces of other colors.

Redistricting commission approves plan Staff and wire reportS San Diego’s redistricting commission approved a preliminary plan last week to divide the city’s more than 1.3 million residents into nine City Council districts, which proposes uniting all of La Jolla in the First Council District. Joe LaCava, past president of La Jolla Community Planning Association who led a districtwide grassroots campaign for a plan called “Coast and Canyons,” district, approval of the preliminary plan for redistricting is “very good news for La Jolla.” “The entirety of La Jolla was united in the new Council District 1,” he said. ”We were also successful in including the entirety of University City within Council District 1, which was another of our goals.” LaCava has lobbied for portions currently in Kevin Faulconer’s 2nd Council District to be moved to what is now Sherri Lightner’s district. The preliminary map created a new Ninth District to run from the College area to Southcrest with Interstate 15 as the western boundary in the southern part of the area. The district will be about half Latino,

according to demographic data, but only half of the eligible voters are registered. It will contain the largest population of immigrants in the city and will have a large number of low-income residents who were kept together based on economic interests such as affordable housing and transit. LaCava noted some very difficult decisions had to be made by redistricting commissioners “given the way neighborhoods and freeways in San Diego are laid out.” From here, LaCava said the preliminary redistricting plan will go out for 30-day public review, then will come back with possible revisions from public testimony and be put into a final draft plan for an Aug. 25 vote. “If there are no legal challenges, that plan will become final in late September,” LaCava said. A series of five public hearings began Tuesday. The preliminary map was approved on a 5-2 vote with Commissioners Theresa Quiroz and Ani Mdivani-Morrow casting the dissenting votes, stating the map did not effectively represent an Asian and Pacific Islander community of interest, a senti-

ment echoed by several activists who spoke out. “I would like to request to the commission that we consider redoing this and taking note of what it is that the API community is asking of us and drawing lines which reflect their need,’’ Quiroz said. ``They waited 10 years and I don’t think we should make them wait another 10.’’ The plan would attach Mira Mesa, which has a large Asian population, to District 6, and the adjusted boundaries will make the district about one-third Asian. District 8 would remain mostly intact under the plan keeping a significantly higher percentage of Latino residents at 75 percent. Downtown San Diego would move to District 3, which would lose part of City Heights in exchange, but would continue to represent North Park and Hillcrest, satisfying the wishes of political activists in the gay community. The final version of the redistricting map will be drawn after the public hearings are complete. — City News Service contributed to this story

Tours offered at city’s Water Purification Demonstration Project Residents can now tour the city’s Water Purification Demonstration Project to learn about the facility at the North City Water Reclamation Plant. This demonstration-scale project is testing the feasibility of providing safe and reliable drinking water from recycled water. Following an introductory presenta-

tion, guides will lead a walking tour through the facility. Guests will see up close the advanced purification process that involves three consecutive steps, including membrane filtration, reverse osmosis and UV disinfection/ advanced oxidation processes. At the end of the tour, guests can view the purified water and will have a chance

to compare it to drinking water and recycled water samples. To register for a tour, visit the project website at For a presentation to your community, civic or business organization, email or call (619) 533-6638.

Artists bring paintings to the streets of La Jolla BY DAVE SCHWAB La Jolla Art Association will be out and about town on Saturday, adding paintings on trash receptacles to beautify the downtown Village. It’s the third year for the beautification project inspired by member Roger Hegler. “This is an outreach for the community,” said Art Association spokeswoman Judy Judy Judy, adding that members decided to volunteer in light of hard economic times and the slashing of civic beautification budgets. The arts group, with the oldest art gallery in San Diego County, was born over afternoon tea in the home of Ellen Browning Scripps. When all is said and done, about 20 of the three dozen trashcans will be adorned with new art, while the others display work from past years. “Some of the artists will be painting outside and installing them (on Saturday) between 10:30 a.m. and noon,” said Judy. They will have their easels set up near where their creations will be displayed. The paintings are mounted on boards being provided by Jade Schulz, owner of a violin shop at 7748B Herschel Ave. An array of artistic styles will be represented, with artists choosing their own interpretation, but their work is barred from having overtly religious or political overtones, Judy said. “It has to be family-oriented,” Judy said,

noting nudes or something espousing a viewpoint on a local political issue, like the presence of seals at Children’s Pool, wouldn’t be acceptable. “We’re just painting them for beautification. It’s our way of giving back to the community,” said Judy. “This isn’t so much about promoting ourselves, but to keep the organization alive. We want to

keep continuing, literally, to be part of the history of La Jolla.” The La Jolla Art Association, in existence since 1918, is best known for its early five and now famous artists — Maurice Brown, Charles Fries, A.R. Valentien, Alfren Mitchell and Charles Reiffel. These artists played an important role in the Southern California Impressionist landscape painting movement

of the early 1900s. They are also credited with a role in putting San Diego County on the National Artistic Map. The La Jolla Art Association is a nonprofit organization, with an office and a gallery at 8100 Paseo del Ocaso in La Jolla. It hosts an annual members show and a series of rotating exhibits.

Riford Center regrouping for the future Community center launches fundraising drive By Dave SchwaB Staff Writer The Riford Center in La Jolla has launched a $400,000 capital fundraising campaign to fulfill its mission to serve as an adult community center for residents age 50 and above. The facility will have a new name — and direction — in keeping with its new philosophical direction. “We have arrived,” proclaimed Ruth Yansick, the CEO for the “new” Riford Center, noting “community” is being added to the center’s name to reflect that the revitalized facility now represents all those young at heart as well as those chronologically aged 50 and beyond. In the 1960s, Florence Riford purchased the property at 6811 La Jolla Blvd. for use as a bridge club. In 1970, she established a trust requiring the center to always be used for La Jollans over age 50 and establishing an endowment for the facility’s perpetuation, which has subsequently run out. Since 2007, when the community-based, 501(c)(3) nonprofit Friends of the Riford Center took control over operations, an ongoing transformation has been ongoing to transform the center from a senior-oriented facility into a full-blown adult center offering a broader range of activities serving “multiple age groups” while still providing elder

services. “We’re starting fresh; we’re going forward,” said Sherry Ahern, chair of Riford’s recently launched capital campaign, which is seeking community contributions to complete building improvements, sustain operations and build a new endowment. To date Riford, with community donations, has renovated its kitchen, great room, hallways and courtyard. But more money is needed for other improvements, including renovating the front entry and lobby; upgrading entrance windows and doors, lobby flooring, exterior landscaping and lighting; adding new lobby and custom cabinets in the great room, and installing sliding doors and windows around the courtyard. “This whole place has been renovated with donations,” said Pancho Dewhurst, a La Jolla contractor and Riford board member. “The community has already come together to bring this together. Now we just need to top it off, bring more awareness.” Attorney Glen Rasmussen, who chairs the center’s board, noted the facility, which presently has about 400 dues-paying members, is solvent, but added that’s a difficult situation to maintain when half the center’s operating expenses come from dues and the other half from donations. “We want to make this center more beautiful and accessible and comfortable so we’ll get more members,” he said. “What we really need is an endowment like the Riford Library has.” CEO Yansick said the whole purpose of the

Riford Center is to give back to the community. “It’s a good feeling, giving back,” she said. Contributors who’ve supported the Riford include Jacqueline Woods, Judy and Jack White, Dr. Lee Vida and Rhonda Read, Lynne and Mason Rosenthal, Kevin and Sherry Ahern, Dr. James Walker and Harriet Lazer,

By Dave SchwaB Staff Writer Conceptual plans for the longawaited Children’s Pool Lifeguard Station remodel were favorably received by La Jolla Parks and Beaches Committee with the provison that full vehicular access is provided to the beach. Committee members also favored an accelerated work schedule proposed to construct the pool, which ordinarily would be slowed by both the city’s summer construction moratorium and the Dec. 15 to May 15 harbor seal pupping season there. The committee, which is in the process of splitting from La Jolla Town Council and becoming its own independent nonprofit, also endorsed a proposal by committee member Phyllis Minick and landscape architect Jim Neri to form a subcommittee to study beautifying a connecting extension of the Children’s Pool plaza walkway which includes a popular gazebo overlooking the pool. “We have conceptual plans

approved and at hand to replace the existing lifeguard station built in the mid-‘60s: It’s small, old, deteriorated and no longer serves the needs of lifeguards or the public and has been condemned,” said Jihad Sleiman with the city’s Engineering and Capital Projects Department. “What we’re going to replace it with is a brand new, state-ofthe-art lifeguard station with two observation towers, streetlevel floor plan, a first-aid station and public restrooms on the lower floor with showers, sinks and drinking fountains.” Sleiman added the new lifeguard station would be accessible from the street level down to the lower-floor restrooms. But when pressed on whether there would be access for maintenance vehicles to get down to the beach to clean and maintain it, Sleiman was uncertain if current plans include access for larger-scale vehicles. “If the beach cannot be maintained … That’s got to be a basic part of the concept,” cautioned

FROM FIREWORKS, A1 Foundation in the case against the fireworks organizers and the city, which approved municipal code changes that exempt private sponsors of fireworks shows on city-owned property from having to apply for special permits. The case alleges debris from the airborne explosions harms sea life at the nearby marine sanctuary. “We have Judge Quinn’s ruling saying we lost the lawsuit, but she granted the stay so we could do the show this year,” Marengo said. Although plans are in the works to appeal the ruling, and “there may not be a 2012 show if we don’t win,” she added, noting “the cost for conducting an (environmental impact report) is estimated at $120,000. … That will virtually stop every kind of event in public parks if he prevails.” On top of that, on July 5, the fireworks foundation was served with an appeal asking the state Water Quality Control Board to revoke the regional permits. Meanwhile, Marengo is tallying the final contributions and expenses — and awaiting some late invoices — for the event that she said would cost about $28,000. She said before the event that she had commit-

ments for donations totaling $27,900. Some are still coming in and if they receive more than was needed, it will stay in the foundation’s account at First Republic Bank. The foundation’s website identifies the group as “a nonprofit corporation, currently seeking 501(c)(3) tax exempt status. Your donation is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.” Marengo said they “filed the initial paperwork, but then, with the lawsuit, we were not sure about whether there would even be a show” so they didn’t move forward. “We’ve had two years of nonstop uncertainty,” she said. “Raising money is one thing; the uncertainty is something else.” Adam Harris, who with Marengo organized the foundation — which is registered as a California public benefit corporation with the state attorney general’s office — said they just put the filing on hold until they find out what’s next. At this point, they have no plans to change the website, although he said they will soon list their expenses and income on the site at Saying “most people didn’t seem to care” about the tax-exempt status, she noted in the

case of large donations they have worked with other La Jolla nonprofits to handle those funds. In 2010, she had to deal with what she called “kind of a glitch,” although it wasn’t related to tax status, involving $5,000 from the city’s Commission for Arts and Culture’s Organizational Support Program (OSP). Although the money was allocated, it was determined that the fireworks group was not qualified to receive the funds from the program. The city’s website says the program “administers funding provided by San Diego’s hotel/motel room tax (Transient Occupancy Tax or TOT) to nearly 90 arts and culture organizations for reimbursement of personnel and operating expenses. The OSP program seeks to foster the vitality and stability of San Diego’s prominent and established arts organizations and cultural institutions. This funding also enables arts and culture organizations to promote San Diego as a cultural destination.” When the issue came up in December 2010, Councilwoman Sherri Lightner’s office worked with the city attorney’s office to figure out a way to revise the funding by adjusting an allocation to the La Jolla Historical Society, Marengo said. John Bolthouse, the society’s

executive director, said the change was “all transparent” and that the society acted as a “passthrough,” cutting a check to the fireworks fund. Marengo said it took 10 months to get the money, while she was dealing with people that were owed money … “then the lawsuit by Marco Gonzalez (just before the 2010 show) slowed our fundraising.” When some large donors inquired about tax deductions this year, Marengo said, she worked with the La Jolla Town Council Foundation, a 501(c)(3), to handle their contributions. Glen Rasmussen, president of that foundation’s board, said that in two cases they received funds for the fireworks group. Those donors wrote checks to the LJTC Foundation and the foundation paid fireworks vendors directly after Marengo submitted invoices, he said. “We can’t pay her organization.” The Town Council foundation served as a similar conduit between the city and the interim La Jolla Business Improvement District advisers before the La Jolla Village Merchants Association took over the role of managing the BID previously held by Promote La Jolla.

Salk researcher a Rita Allen Scholar Dr. Axel Nimmerjahn, assistant professor in the Waitt Advanced Biophotonics Center and holder of the Richard Allan Barry Developmental Chair at the Salk Institute, has been named a 2011 Rita Allen Scholar. Nimmerjahn is one of seven scientists out of 28 candidates to be selected this year and only the third Salk faculty member to receive this award. He will receive $500,000 over a five-year period to pursue his research into the role of glial cells in neurovascular coupling, the temporal and spatial coupling between increased neural activity and cerebral blood flow. Glial cells constitute the majority of human brain cells and dynamically interact with neurons and other cells. Once thought to play only a passive, supportive role, glia are now emerging as active players in healthy brain function. Additionally, glia are critically involved in many injuries and diseases including spinal-cord injury, glioma, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and Alexander’s disease.

Real Estate

T O D A Y by Janet Douglas 8 Tips to Guide your Home Search

1) Research before you look. Decide which features you want most in a home, what neighborhoods you prefer and how much you are willing to spend each month. 2) Be realistic. It’s okay to be picky, but don’t be unrealistic with your expectations. There is no such thing as a perfect home. 3) Get your finances in order. Review your credit report, talk to a lender and get pre-approved so that you do not look at homes you can't afford. 4) Don’t ask too many people for opinions. It will drive you crazy. Be prepared to make the final decision on your own. 5) Decide your moving time-line. When is your lease up? Do you have to sell your present home? 6) Think long term. Are you looking for a starter house with plans to move up in a few years or do you hope to stay in this house a long period? This decision will dictate what type of home you will buy as well as the type of mortgage terms that will best suit you. 7) Insist on a home inspection so that you know what you are buying and make your offer contingent on it. 8) Get help from a Realtor that knows the area.

Scripps Research team makes progress against heroin

Research Report By LynnE FriEdmann

Researchers at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have developed a vaccine against a heroin high that has been shown effective in animal models. Attempts over the past four decades to create a vaccine have fallen short because heroin is an elusive target that metabolizes into multiple substances each producing addictive effects. The TSRI team used an approach that targeted not only heroin itself, but also the chemicals into which it quickly degrades. This novel approach resulted in a vaccine “cocktail” that produced antibodies against a constantly changing drug target. When injected into rats, a rapid antibody response was

shown. In addition, addicted rats were less likely to “self-administer” heroin after several booster shots of the vaccine. The study appears in the American Chemical Society’s Journal of Medicinal Chemistry. News release at n Disrupting ecosystems The decline of large predators at the top of the food chain has disrupted ecosystems all over the planet, according to a review of recent findings conducted by an international team of scientists. Large animals were once ubiquitous across the globe and shaped the structure and dynamics of ecosystems. Their decline, largely caused by humans through hunting and habitat fragmentation, has had far-reaching and often surprising consequences, including changes in vegetation, wildfire frequency, infectious diseases, invasive species, water quality and nutrient cycles. The study looked at research on a wide range of terrestrial, freshwater, and marine ecosystems and con-

cluded that “the loss of apex consumers is arguably humankind’s most pervasive influence on the natural world.” Researchers from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UCSD contributed to the study with a focus on the importance of sharks in coral reef ecosystems. The review appears in the journal Science. News release at n Producing blood cells Salk Institute for Biological Studies researchers have developed an improved technique for generating large numbers of blood cells from a patient’s own cells. Stem cell researchers have been racing towards this goal since 2006, when techniques

for turning ordinary skin cells into induced pluripotential stem cells (iPSCs) were first reported. In particular, Salk researchers have been trying to find more efficient ways to turn iPSCs into blood-forming “hematopoietic” stem cells (HSCs) which would be medically valuable for their ability to supply both oxygen-carrying red blood cells and also all the white blood cells of the immune system. In the study, researchers tried different combinations and sequences of growth factors and other chemical compounds in an effort to mimic the changing conditions in the womb that naturally direct ESCs to become HSCs in a developing human. This cocktail approach induced the iPSCs and ESCs to form colonies of cells that bore the distinctive molecular markers of blood cells. Their best effort yielded blood-specific markers on 84 percent of the cells after three weeks. The findings appear in the journal Stem Cells.

Chateau La Jolla gets a new look Chateau La Jolla Inn, a mainstay of the La Jolla independent living community since 1973, just completed a remodel of its dining room. “It’s all brand new from the carpet to the fixtures to the upholstery to the walls and art,” said Kim Hollingsworth, the Chateau’s leasing director as she stood in the facility’s elegant dining room last week after months of work. “We actually remodeled some of the back of the kitchen as well.” Located at 233 Prospect St., the Inn is “a full-service, hotel-style restaurant, so if you live across the street and you want to come over for dinner — you can do that,” she added. Non-residents are welcome to partake of the breakfast buffet, lunch, dinner or Sunday brunch menus at a reasonable price. Hollingsworth said the décor of the dining room and the rest of the facility’s interior reflects the sand and sea theme of the exterior of the residential facility located just a block from the beach. There are several features that stand out about Chateau La Jolla Inn. “The property has been here for a long time, we have local owners and we stress our value is unparalleled for this area,” said Hollingsworth. There are about 100 residents, active seniors, living in three

Hughes and Marino join forces to give commercial tenants a voice By Patricia B. Dwyer Intern Any business that deals with exchanging large amounts of money is innately cunning and commercial real estate is no different. Transactions that have such high stakes require the services of brokers to protect the interests of both parties. It wasn’t until the last 20 years that business owners looking to buy or rent property had such basic protections. “The real estate business really revolves around landlords first and tenants second,” said David Marino of Hughes Marino, a real estate firm dedicated to representing only tenants and buyers of commercial real

estate. “We are really putting the business on its head by representing the tenants.” Marino, a La Jolla resident, joined forces with his long-time colleague Jason Hughes of Rancho Santa Fe in February of this year to form Hughes Marino. Hughes formerly had a similar company with Craig Irving. Both Hughes and Marino have each been in the real estate business for over 20 years, and say they are using their collective knowledge for the betterment of commercial tenants across San Diego. “Tenants are constantly being taken advantage of simply because landlords almost always have the advantage,” Hughes said. “Dave and I have

the same passion for taking care of our clients.” More largely based tenant representation companies can sometimes focus on square footage and numbers as opposed to the characteristics of the property being rented and how well the tenant may utilize the space. “Since we work mainly with local business owners, each transaction has to be based on quality, not just volume,” Marino said. Hughes Marino also works in construction management, lease audit services, and tax credit services. Regardless of the task, all of their work is done with the goal of making life easier for San Diego businesses.

Do your part to stop car thieves Our view Summertime in La Jolla brings a lot of good things, from Concerts by the Sea to Summerfest and more activity (hopefully) for our local businesses, restaurants and hotels. But it also brings out the bad — an increase in thieves who figure they can capitalize on the increase in traffic and number of people in town. We’ve seen a spike in the number re-

ported by the police department’s eWatch notification system much as we did a year ago. Over the span of 10 days, there were at least 10 car break-ins or thefts in La Jolla alone, with many of those in the Shores area.

remembering La Jolla’s visitors Thank you for the article on the so talented Ginger Rogers and her mother (July 14). Many years ago, I spent an interesting afternoon with one of her husbands, Lew Ayres, the actor known for his role on Dr. Kildaire in the first TV series with Lionel Barrymore, and for his role as the innocent young German soldier in “All Quiet on the Western Front.” We were having a membership show at the La Jolla Art Association gallery on Girard. I had the key, but was late and found Lew Ayres peering through the glass panes of the front door. I let him in, and he made a circuit around the room, commenting on the various paintings. Both he and Ginger were serious still-life artists. Soon we were joined by Carolus Verhaeren, a La Jolla landscape painter, and by a well-known Spanish miniature artist from Taos. It was a gray, dismal Wednesday and there were few visitors. The four of us had a

This event has become much more than just raising funds for the show. We would like to thank all of our donors for their unwavering support. The relationships that have been developed over the years, your support and kind words are very much appreciated. A very special thank you to our major donors for their generous contributions: Audrey Geisel and the

The Children’s Pool — A former lifeguard’s opinion Your View By JOhn LOMAc San Diego resident

At a recent La Jolla Community Planning Association (“LJCPA”) meeting to discuss a City of San Diego proposal to close the Children’s Pool beach during seal pupping season there were several statements made by community members in opposition. I offer these rebuttals based upon first-hand experiences as a former city Lifeguard II in the La Jolla area. While I spent most of my lifeguard hours at the Shores, Scripps and Black’s beaches, I spent many weekends at the Cove and Children’s Pool. During the

winter months I was stationed at La Jolla Shores and was one of the backup lifeguards that assist the lifeguard at the Cove or Children’s Pool when assistance was needed. During the hours I worked at the Cove and Children’s Pool I also rescued many swimmers and divers. With respect to the comments made at the LJCPA meeting by divers present, it is simply not true that there are no other safe places to dive in the area. The Cove is recognized as a diver’s paradise with safe entry to the marine reserve. The boat launch area at the south end of La Jolla Shores is one of the safest points of entry for divers, particularly for learners. With any kind of ocean swell the diving conditions at the Children’s Pool always made for dangerous diving conditions. I rescued too many divers of all experience levels to believe that public access should be

FROM QuALcOMM, A1 would have delighted in the applause that followed Jacob’s admission that Joan’s love of a home spotted in La Jolla on vacation, brought the East Coast couple to town in the mid ‘60s when he was offered a professorship at UCSD. “Back then, UCSD was recruiting new faculty members so there was always a dinner party at someone’s home. I remember the night I went to one at Professor Harold Urey’s house — he was a Nobel Prize winner in chemistry — and upon hearing I was from the electrical engineering department, he pulled me over to his window overlooking the cove and showed me all the electrical wires criss-crossing the view. ‘How can I get rid of all these wires?” he asked me. “I guess he never knew I would end up in the wireless business,” Jacobs said, grinning. He then offered the crowd a brief history of Qualcomm (named for quality in communications) and a look at the global evolution of cell phones, now smart phones in the third generation of wireless communication combining voice and data transference. “The challenge going forward,” Jacobs said, “is to produce a high performance computer for smart phones that uses very little battery power.” (Qualcomm’s chipsets are called Snapdragon.) He said 85 to 90 percent of Qualcomm’s

revenue comes from outside the United States (China, India and now Africa), though the product engineering is done here. “There are some 5 billion subscribers in the world, and the world’s population is, what now? 7 billion?” The college professor-scientist-businessmanphilanthropist concluded that his hope for the future is that the United States gets its public education costs under control so American students can all be hooked into “e-education.” His bets are on e-textbooks, real time testing and peer-to-peer information exchange. “We’re just not educating enough people,” Jacobs said. “And the future is in math and the sciences — a course or two in accounting is valuable, as well.” After the lecture, La Jollan Art Brandt said what made it interesting to him was the role San Diego played in the 1980s as cell phone technology debuted. “The story is part of U.S. history.” Chuck Day, CEO of Ronald McDonald house, said he was inspired by Jacob’s energy. “He continues to move things ahead in San Diego. He is a remarkable guy!” As she left the Riford Center, Amal Madany was all smiles. “What else can I say? I have a son who works at Qualcomm!”

preserved for scuba divers because the Children’s Pool is a safe diving beach. Such is simply not so. A statement was made at the meeting by a father “who wanted to be able to take his daughter to a safe beach nearby.” Based upon my experience working at the Children’s Pool during winter months, I would never categorize the Children’s Pool as being a safe place for children. Unless local ocean conditions are completely calm, there is always an outgoing surge off the end of the sea wall caused by the existing deep channel. If anything, parents need to be extra vigilant watching their children at the Children’s Pool, no matter what depth of water. Rockand reef-associated beaches should never be considered to be safe havens for bathing, most particularly for children and toddlers. The safest bathing beach is La Jolla Shores,

FROM StAtIOn, A10 longtime committee member Melinda Merryweather. The city engineer added the new lifeguard station project would be done on a design-build basis. “The designer and contractor will be on the same team, and we’re going to build it as we design it,” he said. But Sleiman added a major problem remains as the summer construction moratorium and seals’ pupping season combined leave only three or four months time when work could be done each year at Children’s Pool. He estimated construction of the new 766-square-foot, estimated $3.8 million lifeguard tower would take a total of 14 months with work commencing in winter 2012 with the demolition of the existing structure. FROM FIREWORKS, A1 Jeff Seigel, a local financial adviser and CPA, noted that donors could seek the deduction after the fact, assuming the fireworks group follows through with obtaining its tax exempt status. For now, though, they should not deduct the funds, he said. Marengo said anyone with questions about their donations should contact her. She can be reached through the website at php.

particularly from the lifeguard tower going south to the boat launch area. The beach is staffed yearround with lifeguards who focus their attention upon watching bathers and swimmers, not, as at the Cove and the Children’s Pool are required to do, keeping a mindful, binocular-eye on divers outside of the posted swimming area. Lastly, there was an absolutely incorrect statement made by one of the LJCPA trustees that “there was no problem at all with seals and people interacting with each other.” Mother seals, given any provocation, can be ferocious in their protection of their young. Taking pictures and approaching seals at close distance, particularly with an accompanied child, is simply foolish. No reasonable person should ever think that a parent seal would not do what is natural based upon a perceived threat.

Parks committee member Bill Robbins suggested the scope of the project be increased. “Looking at the bigger picture, we need to fix everything, including the steps,” he said. “Why are we ignoring them saying they’re not part of the product?” Parks committee member Ken Hunrichs suggested more shower space will be needed than what is envisioned, pointing out

there will be long lines otherwise. At the end of the meeting, the committee voted unanimously to send a letter to the city advocating that it start fulfilling its role of cleaning and maintaining Children’s Pool as provided in the trust status of the pool when it was bequeathed by Ellen Browning Scripps and deeded from the state to the city back in the 1930s.

Post-season run ends for La Jolla Shetland team La Jolla’s Shetland All-Star team’s World Series run finally came to an end at West Covina last Saturday. The 6-year-olds put up an incredible effort playing games against teams favored to win it all. It all started Friday (July 22) against a heavily favored Whittier ball club. La Jolla fell behind 5-0 in the first inning then 7-0 in the third. The team staged another dramatic comeback to make it 7-4 going into the bottom of the fourth and nearly came back with runners on base in the bottom of the fourth. However, their rally came up short. Miscues in the final inning resulted in a 17-4 defeat. Saturday the team played a doubleheader against Simi Valley and then against defending World Series champion and host team West Covina in the second game. They did not fair well, losing 10-0 to Simi Valley then 8-0 to West Covina. Though the team hit the ball well, they faced strong defensive teams and came up short. The games were played back to back in 90-degree heat. “These boys did give it their all and they went down fighting,” coach Michael Solis said. “These kids gave it their all and we’re all so proud of them.” See LJYB, A22

Military families enjoy Little Warriors Surf Camp By Phil Dailey For a few days at La Jolla Shores this summer, children of deployed or wounded military families learned to surf, get an education on the ocean, and more importantly, enjoy the waves. The Little Warriors Surf Camp, which is put on by Freedom is Not Free, is now in its third year in La Jolla. What started out as a sports camp a few years ago, the surf camp is now so popular that it has been broken up into four sessions. “It’s a surf camp for kids of local soldiers, most of them are deployed,” said John Winslow, the programs director for Freedom is Not Free. “You get all these kids together that are in very similar circumstances and they can all relate to each other and give them a hobby where they can continue with this on their own.” Many of the kids who participate in the program are not from Southern California and are stationed at nearby military bases such as Camp Pendleton, North Island in Coronado and other parts of San Diego County. But for a few afternoons, these kids get to put aside many of the stresses that come with being in the military. “Military families are close to my heart,” said Alyssa Newbarth, who is an instructor with Surf Diva as well as a military spouse. “I don’t think people realize just how much pressure is on the parent who has to stay

home. This is just a really good release for them to forget about that stuff for a day or two.” Along with surf lessons that are provided by Surf Diva, each family gets to take home an INT Softboard. In total, 100 kids participate in the camp and 65 surf boards are handed out. Ruthie Hernandez, whose husband is a Marine, was at the Shores with her three children and her niece and nephew for the second straight year. “I like that they are learning about the water and what’s out there so they know it’s safe to go out there,” said Hernandez. “It’s just having fun,” 8-year-old Angelo Hernandez said. “Just standing up and riding the waves, ‘cause when you Boogie Board you can’t stand up.” The camp’s first two sessions conclude today with two more scheduled in August. “It’s something that we truly love,” said Surf Diva co-founder Izzy Tihanyi “Our instructors line up to get this opportunity to work with these kids. We feel like it’s important to support these families and Surf Diva is super stoked to be a part of this event.” The event has become so popular that Winslow said they are working on ways to get even more kids out in the water. “We’d like to grow it,” he said. “There is definitely room to grow and we’re playing with some ideas.” For more on the camp and Freedom is Not Free, go to

La Jolla Bronco 11s postseason run ends The La Jolla Bronco 11’s postseason run finally came to an end in the Western Zone tournament in Walnut near Los Angeles. The team had already won two championship banners in the first two rounds and finished as the runner-up out of 16 teams at the Southern California Super Regional tournament in Whittier. At the Western Zone, the team was one of eight playing for a trip to the Bronco 11s World Series in Virginia. The team won their first game against Orangecrest, 10-8. Carson Greene pitched another strong game to lead La Jolla. Noah McBride got the scoring started with a three-run homer and Sterling Hayes added two home runs for La Jolla. Orangecrest battled back to tie the game 8-8 but La Jolla was able to score two late runs to secure the victory. Next the team played Torrance American, a team they had beat in the Super Regional tournament in Whittier. It was a hard fought battle that saw Torrance win 11-7. Another game immediately followed under the lights against Charter Oak. The bats went quiet and the Bronco 11s suffered a

disappointing post-season ending loss. Torrance American won the Western Zone and advanced to the World Series. Despite the loss, the boys held their heads high knowing they had played toe-to-toe with the best teams in the West and notched victories against many of them, including Torrance American, the team that will represent the West Zone in the World Series. “Our pitching was great,” coach Dave Hammel said. “But to have great pitching results, you have to make great plays in the field. And we did. And I can tell you that we were one of the highest scoring teams in the tournament.” Hammel lead the team to to a 10-5 record in tournament play and he did it while getting playing time for each and every player every game. “Every boy should be proud of the fact that they turned into a true team unit, and that is why we all had this success, “ Hammel said. The La Jolla Youth Baseball season, which began way back in February, finally came to a close for a special group of 11 year-olds.

From LJYB, A20 With the season now over, here are the team’s accomplishments: n First La Jolla Shetland All-Star team ever assembled. n Won the 2011 Southern California Southwest Region Shetland Championship in Fallbrook. n Was the top team in San Diego County. n Qualified for the Shetland World Series held in West Covina. n Was the first team ever to reach the World Series from La Jolla Shetland. n Played a total of 10 games with an overall record of 6-4. n Lasted longer than all other La Jolla youth All-Star teams in post-season play. n The team was led by manager Michael Solis,assistant coaches Ron Crater,Walter Birnbaum and Charles Hartford.

Beach walks inspire Hudson Drake after a high-powered career A retired aerospace executive and La Jolla resident, Hudson Drake is respected in both the business and government service arenas. His career spanned almost four decades, primarily in the leadership of companies in the aerospace, defense and Hudson electronics industries. He Drake served in several capacities in the federal government, including Deputy Under Secretary of Commerce, and Chief of the U.S. Delegation to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development Industry Committee in Paris, France. Drake won a presidential appointment as a White House Fellow in 1968, a nonpartisan honor, based on leadership, professional and civic achievements. During his appointment, he served as special assistant to Vice Presidents Humphrey and Agnew. Drake and his family returned to his native Southern California in 1972, settling in San Diego. He joined Teledyne Inc. and was president of Ryan Electronics, and subsequently, the Ryan Aeronautical Companies, before moving to the headquarters in Century City. He was responsible for nine high technology companies generating revenues in excess of $1.5 billion. He retired in 1997. His experience with nonprofit boards includes Children’s Hospital, the UCSD Board of Overseers, and the Jonsson Cancer Center at UCLA. The Ronald MacDonald House has gained a special place in his heart, thanks to his wife Mary, who spearheaded the launch of the charity’s ROMP, its first large-scale gala. What brought you to La Jolla? When I was working here in San Diego, we vacationed at the Beach and Tennis Club ... couldn’t wait to retire here! What makes this area special to you? It is the climate, village atmosphere and wonderful friends.


Let it rise! Where to find fresh-baked bread in La Jolla

Julian Bakery ovens produce dozens of loaves daily. BY PATRICIA B. DWYER he act of breaking bread shares an importance in dozens of cultures around the world that is easily forgotten in the practice of the pre-sliced and mass-produced loaf. Still, there a handful of bakeries in the La Jolla area that maintain the tradition, baking bread fresh daily — ready to be broken and shared.


■ Aroma Bakery 909 Prospect St (858) 454-7272 Mostly regarded as a conventional restaurant, Aroma Bakery also sells loaves of fresh bread to go. It sells all the breads that are on its restaurant menu — the most popular being the French baguette. The first load of dough goes into the bakery’s state-of-theart oven at 4 a.m. and loaves are baked continuously all day long for the more than 500 customers who walk into Aro-


ma Bakery each day. Visitors can sit down and enjoy the fresh bread with a meal, or purchase it to go for no more than $3 per loaf. ■ Jonathan’s Market 7611 Fay Ave. (858) 459-2677 Barbara Sanchez runs the bakery and points out that freshly baked bread is available as soon as the store opens each day. The loaves come part-baked and Jonathan’s finishes the baking process to offer 12-inch baguettes ($1.79) and whole loaves like ciabatta, and Rosemary and olive breads ($5.99). ■ Julian Bakery 5621 La Jolla Blvd. (858) 454-1198 Julian Bakery has been a part of the La Jolla community for more than 20 years and spent all of that time dedicated to creating and producing health-

Its bread menu is comprised of gluten-free, yeast-free, high protein, low carbohydrate, low calorie, fully sprouted bread variations, each one made with 95-percent organic materials. Apart from the actual bakery on La Jolla Blvd., Julian Bakery breads are distributed across the nation at stores like Whole Foods, Albertsons, Jonathan’s,

and Jimbo’s. All of Julian Bakery’s materials are shipped from an organic farm in Montana and the flour is sprouted and ground from scratch on site for each loaf, which further sets it apart from other bakeries in the area. Each loaf is ensured to be as fresh and organic as possible.

■ Girard Gourmet 7837 Girard Ave. (858) 454-3321 The dimly lit and quaintly classic Girard Gourmet may not have the fanciest storefront display on the Avenue, but there will still be a line out the door at lunchtime. The cafe’s selection of breads is traditional as its entire menu and general establishment. The big seller is the French loaf for $3, but the eight-grain, Herbes de Provence, and Venezia don’t sit on the shelves too long either. Ingredients for the breads are received from a bakery supply company in Los Angeles and prepared and baked in the bakery. All the loaves cost under $5, and the cafe also uses them for its sandwiches. “Certain sandwiches work well with certain breads,” said owner François Goedhuys who opened Girard Gourmet almost 24 years ago. “My favorite is the eight grain, because it’s healthier, but I really like the Herbes de Provence.”

Who or what inspires you? That would be my wife … and watching La Jolla sunsets together on the beach.

The history of bread The Hungry Monster website has a note-worthy look at bread through the ages. Here’s an excerpt. If you’d like another slice, read the whole report at frozen, none of it’s day-old,” CEO Patrick Rogers told The Light when Panera opened in La Jolla earlier this month. The loaves range in price from 99-cents to $8, and there are at least 10 different styles and flavors. ■ Albertsons & Vons Albertsons: 730 Turquoise St. (858) 488-0600 Vons: 7544 Girard Ave. (858) 454-2620 The local Albertsons and Vons grocery marts in La Jolla also offer a selection of freshly baked bread each afternoon, baked from frozen loaves of dough received by the markets.

■ Humans have eaten some form of bread since the Neolithic era, when cereal grains were crushed and mixed with water to form a thick paste that could be cooked over the fire and consumed. ■ The Egyptians, in approximately 2600 BC were lucky enough to have a sufficient amount of wild yeasts in the air from the beer brewing to accidently discover its uses in leavening bread. Workers were often paid in loaves of bread. Paintings in the pyramids show that the dead were buried with loaves of bread, to provide sustenance in the afterlife. (The British Museum has one of these loaves — 4000 years old!) ■ Greek sailors and merchants brought the Egyptian flour back to Greece, where bread baking flourished. Rome took over the enterprise after their conquest of Greece, and in 150 BC formed the first Baker’s Guilds.

If you hosted a dinner party for eight, whom would you invite? Herodotus, Cleopatra (just finished her biography by Stacy Schife), Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Winston Churchill, Harry Truman, Ronald Reagan and presidential scholar Doris Kearns. What are your favorite films of all time? “Sound of Music,” “Titanic,” “Motorcycle Diaries,” “Cabaret” and “Patton.” What is your most-prized possession? The memories of our many travels around the world, and some of the artifacts we gathered along the way. What do you do for fun? I fly fish, golf, and walk the beach with Mary. Describe your greatest accomplishment. Following an intense and lengthy competition, being selected as a White House Fellow, and serving Presidents Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon.

Mainly Mohan: Trio works to launch artistic fundraiser for La Jolla Historical Society By Will BoWen Artlawn 2011 is coming to town with an unparalleled opportunity to view some excellent art under the sun, balmy skies, and beautiful light of a patented La Jolla summer day. Artlawn 2011 is the idea of La Jolla businessman Steve Medoff and La Jolla Historical Society executive director John Bolthouse. It will feature the abstract geometrical artwork of La Jolla artist Mohan Sundaresan exhibited in the garden of Wisteria Cottage from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday Aug. 6 and Sunday, Aug. 7. Medoff has a very simple explanation for how they came up with the term “Artlawn”: “You have probably heard of ArtWalk and ArtFest … well, since this is art on the lawn ... we decided to call it ... ArtLawn!” On a serious note, this event will be an important fundraiser for the historical society. All proceeds from the raffle of an original abstract painting by Sundaresan, “The Setting of the Jewel,” will go to the Society, along with a percentage of

all art sold. The raffle is $5 a ticket and there will be only 200 tickets sold. The show will feature six canopy tents and some 60 works of Sundaresan’s art, including pieces conceived in aluminum and on canvas. There will also be affordably priced pieces mounted on poster board. Sundaresan, a self-taught home interior restoration expert, master carpenter, and “Jack–of-All Trades,” said he was inspired to turn to art by the magnificent views in La Jolla. He was born in Bangalore, India on a plantation surrounded by

mango trees, to Hindu parents who converted to Christianity, and has lived in La Jolla for the past 20 years with his wife Anna. Many may have seen Sundaresan on his daily walks around town with his dog, Dizzie the dachshund, which he undertakes around 5-6 p.m. or when he is waiting for his art work to dry. Sundaresan has a very different and what some may call “cross-disciplinary” style of painting. He places his canvas, which he has stretched over a sheet of plywood backing for firmness (flat and fac-

artistic spirit speak through a dance of paint, color, and movement. Medoff, who is Sundaresan’s friend and agent, calls this physical approach to painting, “Art Aerobics.” Sundaresan said that when he paints, he works up a sweat and his heart is pumping. “If I feel the shock of a current of creative electricity through me, I will give the canvas a shock with a thump or a knock in turn.” When his dance of creativity is over, Sundaresan, often exhilarated but exhausted, says, “I am often very surprised by how the painting turned out.”

ing up) over two wooden sawhorses. Then, foregoing any brushes, he squirts acrylic paint, which he stores in a set of yellow plastic mustard containers, on both his hands, and waits for inspiration. When the spirit moves him, he begins a kind of whole body artistic dance, spinning around the canvas, entreating, engaging, attacking, and cajoling it with swirling and flowery hand motions, whereby he splays the paint upon the canvas. If the mood strikes, he may also tap, thump, hit or backhand the canvas, with his paint-laden hands, letting his emotions and the

Biographer to discuss director known as ‘the one-eyed bandit’ at Wills Books Film historian Marilyn Ann Moss will discuss her new book, “Raoul Walsh: The True Adventures of Hollywood’s Legendary Director,” 7 p.m. Saturday, July 30 at D.G. Wills Books, 7461 Girard Ave. Moss, who lives in Los Angeles and was a television critic for The Hollywood Reporter from 1995 to 2009, also penned “Giant: George Stevens, A Life on Film,” and numerous articles on writers like Paul Bowles, Theodore Dreiser, Joan Didion, Frank Norris and Allen Ginsberg. According to press materials, Raoul Walsh (1887– 1980) was known as one of Hollywood’s most adventurous, iconoclastic and creative directors, carving out an illustrious career and making films that transformed the Hollywood studio yarn into a thrilling art form. He belonged to that early generation of directors (along with John Ford and Howard Hawks) who worked earned him the moniker in the fledgling film industry direct on his own.

Fishing for sanity in taco land

Let Inga tell you ... Forget mandatory military service. Everyone should be required to work two years in retail. I actually did a fair amount of retail in my high school and college years — waitressing, sales jobs in clothing stores, etc. But I’ve realized that I couldn’t do it anymore. I’d just scream at the patrons and get fired, probably on the first day. During my years working up near the university, I developed a love affair with a fast food Mexican grill that I have successfully continued in my retirement, courtesy of their multitude of loca-

tions. If they’d only had a Frequent Eater stock option program, I’d be a majority shareholder by now. Several times a week, I can still be found plunking my $6.23 on the counter and walking away with two Health-Mex chicken tacos. I’ve spent a lot of time listening to people place orders while I’m waiting for mine and I can’t fathom how cashiers in fast food places maintain their sanity. But they are always relentlessly nice. And patient. And smiling. I’m not privy to what these poor folks do when they go home but if it were me, I’d start out by screaming in my car at 150 decibels. (I concede that this would not work as well on a bus.) Imagine a day of orders like this: Customer: What’s in the Fish Taco Especial? Cashier (pointing to the large-print menu board that

specifically states what it contains): Beer-battered fish, guacamole, cheese, and cilantro, on your choice of corn or flour tortilla. Customer: Is it good? Cashier: Very good. It’s one of our signature menu items. Customer: So what does es-special mean? Cashier: That’s Spanish for “special.� Customer: Oh. What kind of cheese is in it? Cashier: Cheddar and Jack. Customer: Could I have Swiss instead? Cashier: We don’t actually have Swiss, but we could leave out the cheese if you prefer. Customer: If I get a hamburger, can I get Swiss? Cashier (amazingly, still smiling): This is a Mexican restaurant so we don’t have hamburgers. May I recommend our Grilled Steak Taco instead? Customer: What’s in that? Cashier (pointing to the menu board again): Grilled steak, guacamole, cheese, lettuce, and salsa on your choice of tortilla. You can have it as a two-taco plate with tortilla

chips and pinto beans, or rice or black beans. I highly recommend the pinto beans. Customer: Could I get just one taco with chips and no cheese, and could you wrap it in lettuce instead of a tortilla? I’m kind of doing this low-carb thing. Cashier: Well, let me ask the manager, but I think we could do that. Customer: Is the salsa spicy? I don’t really like spicy. Cashier: No, not real spicy. But I might recommend that you add your own salsa from our excellent salsa bar right over there. It has everything from mild to “picante,� which means really spicy. Customer: Well, maybe I’ll get that. I’d like the steak well done. I don’t want any of that Mad Cow stuff. Cashier: Um, okay. So, one Grilled Steak Taco, well done, with guacamole, no cheese, wrapped in a lettuce leaf, no salsa, with chips. Would you like a drink with that? Customer: I’ll have a choc-

olate milkshake. Cashier: I’m sorry we don’t have milkshakes but we have great Mexican beer, plus a variety of soft drinks. Customer: Oh. Just water then. (Cell phone rings. To cashier:) Hold on, I’ve got a call coming in. (To caller:) I’m trying to order lunch and they can’t seem to get my order straight. Cashier: That will be $3.85. Customer: Darn. I think I left my wallet in my other purse. Here’s how this would have gone down if I were the cashier: Inga: Look at the menu board! If you want a burger, go to Jack in the Box! Leave! Come back when you actually want to order!

Researcher’s book offers prescription for better leadership By KirBy BrooKs Nina Rosoff — a social and behavioral scientist, academician and organization/leadership specialist — just penned her first book, “The Power of Paradox: The Protean Leader and Leading in Uncertain Times.” “The seed of wanting to write a book was planted when I was a child. Even though those were just words to me then, once I began writing my doctoral dissertation in 1970, I promised myself I would write a book that would contribute to leaders and to their organizations’ success.” Rosoff rejected the idea to author such a book back then, and instead contributed to scholarly journals and publications throughout her career, during which, she found herself on the faculty of MIT Sloan School twice

Author Nina rosoff resides in La Jolla. and with other major business schools. She began working on “The Power of Paradox,” in January 2005 and finally published it on June, 21 2011. The book sees Rosoff tackling the unsolved dilemma of standard economics: How to lead in uncertainty. To find the answer, she said she

combed through decades of research, did an in-depth literature review, and interviewed hundreds of leaders of all types — from successful CEOs to HR managers, to academicians and presidents, an owner of an NFL team, and the predecessor of the No. 1 hotelier in the world. Despite its title, the business text is unpretentious and easy to read. Through her conversational narrative, Rosoff shows leaders a path through seven paradoxes, combining anecdotes, stories, and ideas about what did and didn’t work for leaders, with their own inspired “ah-ha” moments about the interworking of paradox. She shows why being “protean,” works to help leaders and organizations face the challenges of uncertain times by managing complexity better.

Protean pro·te·an/pró-’té-; adjective ■ 1. Tending or able to change frequently or easily. ■ 2. Able to do many different things; versatile. Source: MerriaM-WebSter

Since earning her BA from Scripps College, master of social work from the University of Michigan, and Ph.D. from Case Western Reserve University, Rosoff founded the firm, Leadership and Organization Consultants. She consults globally to start-ups, Fortune 500 profit-sector clients like P & G, American Express, Chase, BP, Xerox Corporation, Exxon, Time Inc. and non-profit clients like the United Hospital Fund, the

Child Welfare League of America, and others. At the core of “The Power of Paradox” is the reality that leaders’ actions often have opposite consequences than those intended. She calls this the “Law of Unintended Consequences” and seeks to minimize this cycle of leadership failure, by identifying some root causes. In the book, Rosoff provides a “take away” for readers, titled, “The Protean Leadership Model.” It describes capabilities and actions, that when executed using what she calls “dynamic thinking,” can empower anyone to lead better — whether as a parent or a CEO. “I would love for it to make a difference, especially for leaders who are struggling today, and for everyday people who want to live more fulfilled, happier and

You can take the heat with chilled soups

Kitchen Shrink By CAThAriNe L. KAUfmAN After spending more than a week in the Sonoran Desert (that makes a sauna look like a meat freezer), I’ve mastered the art of cooking without applying heat. Charred offerings are so Neanderthal anyway, while raw food gurus put the skids on temperatures north of 104°F or 40°C. If you can’t take the heat — get out of the kitchen with some of my no-cooking required faves from chilled soups to sweet and savory nuts. Cold soups evoke fond and fun memories of my youth, even in the wintertime. As a child, I loved my Russian grandma’s dessertdelicious, gorgeous fuchsia beet borscht, chilled to perfection with a swirl of silky sour cream bulls-eye in the center. My Aunt Joy was also a chilled soup aficionado, especially on the days when she entertained her bridge ladies. On those balmy pa-

trician summer afternoons she refused to cook for fear of permeating her home with offensive cooking aromas (and heat) that she associated with an aura of peasantry. Every week she served a different chilled soup, her best picks – lobster fennel, carrot with cucumber pistachio relish, watermelon with basil cream, and avocado with lump crab. During my teen years, I experienced a zany chilled soup epiphany, while doing kitchen patrol for an affluent socialite, for whom I regularly babysat. About as adroit in the kitchen as Roseanne Barr on a tightrope, Mrs. Fortune-500 enlisted me, the 16-year-old boy-crazy sous chef to help prepare a pish-posh gourmet feast for her New Year’s Eve soiree for two dozen of her hubby’s high-powered colleagues and clients. Lucy and Ethel started preparing the vichyssoise late afternoon, even though the soup needed to chill for several hours, and guests would be arriving around 7 p.m. She lived in a tony penthouse in downtown Toronto, with a huge panoramic balcony sporting below zero temperatures in the dead of winter. Thank goodness the hostess’ brains outweighed her culinary savvy

Chilled Persian Cuke Soup 2 cups Greek yoghurt 1 ½ cups ice-cold spring water ½ cup toasted walnuts or pistachios, chopped 2 Persian cucumbers, diced ½ cup sultana raisins ¼ cup fresh, chopped mint ¼ cup fresh, chopped chives Sea salt and cayenne pepper to taste Zest from Meyer lemon Method: In a large mixing bowl, blend the yoghurt and water. Add walnuts, raisins, cucumber, mint, chives and seasonings. Mix thoroughly. Chill well. Ladle into your favorite libation glasses and garnish with lemon zest.

as she placed the steamy pot of soup on the frigid balcony to chill. The vichyssoise was temperature-ready after sumptuous appetizers were served. In my “salad days” when I visited the south of Spain, I fell in love with the traditional Andalusian chilled veggie soup called gazpacho, which at the time I thought translated from Spanish for “baggy, chic pantaloons.” This ruby liquid salad blending ripe tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers, garlic and chunks of crusty bread sopping with golden Spanish olive oil is the country’s signature soup, which probably originated in the Middle Ages during Spain’s Islamic occupation. Gazpacho was then called “ajo blanco,” a concoction of crushed almonds, garlic, bread, olive oil and vinegar.

Originally, this dish which was considered a poor man’s food, a soggy paste served to the workers in the vineyards, groves and fields, has evolved into many chefs’ creative combinations and permutations at assorted

frou-frou eateries around the globe. Today, chilled summer soups make my A-list for a light and refreshing, yet hearty and zesty treat, bursting with vibrant colors and flavors of sun-ripened, fresh

off-the-vine fruits and veggies. Showcasing California’s bountiful summer beauties are avocado chili bisque, roasted red pepper gazpacho, strawberry vermouth, spicy mango ginger, Greek Karpouzosoupa, (watermelon mint soup), raw chilled corn chowder, pineapple and chipotle cream and blueberry wine. Serve some assorted nuts on the side, especially hearthealthy walnuts, antioxidantpacked almonds, or pecans, the Roto-Rooter for arteries. Try this Middle Eastern chilled soup that can be made ahead of time before your bridge (or mah-jong) ladies arrive. Serve it in Champagne flutes or martini glasses.

Quaint Mille Fleurs sits nestled in the heart of Rancho Santa Fe By Kelley CaRlson he French countryside can be found among the rolling hills of Rancho Santa Fe. Nestled in the heart of the village is the romantic Mille Fleurs restaurant, named for the floral pattern on the rare blue-and-white Portuguese Delft tile inlaid in the walls. The entrance to the establishment is through a courtyard framed by numerous flowers. Guests are greeted by the sight of bright yellow umbrellas shading about a dozen tables, as a fountain bubbles in the center. Inside the restaurant, patrons can opt for an intimate or casual experience, with several seating areas from which to choose. The Fountain Room, which has French doors that provide views of the courtyard, is adjacent to the bar. Music is softly played from the piano in the far corner each night, although after 9 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday, the tempo picks

A less-expensive, casual menu — the Petits Plats — is offered in this part of the restaurant; small plates may range from a simple Garden Salad to Lobster Bisque, while entrees may include Black Mussels “Au Gratin” and Confit of Maple Leaf Farm Duck. Several rooms in the restaurant are semi-private, decorated in blue, pink and golden hues to complement the prominently displayed Mille Fleurs, or “thousand flowers,” Delft tiles. The centerpiece in The Celebrity is the constantly crackling fireplace, while The Flower Basket has a large rectangular table and a long, cushioned seat along a wall. Foliage and flowers can be seen by day from The Terrace, which has plenty of natural lighting due to the numerous glass panes in its doors.

Appetizers and entrees that might be offered include Burgundy Escargots, Yellowfin Tuna and Green Bean Salad, Lamb Prepared Two Ways and the Prime Beef Cheese Burger. For dessert, a patron might find Pear and Goat Cheese Tartlet, Frozen Cherry Nougat or Truffles of Belgian Chocolate. Reservations are recommended at Mille Fleurs — the restaurant’s busiest times tend to be during the Del Mar racing season and holidays, Hug said. “We are modern, yet quaint,” he said. “We serve the freshest food, and we change the menu every day. The people who work here have been here forever. We have so many regulars coming in, they know they will find a friendly face.”

Cast in ‘Sleeping Beauty Wakes’ outshines its story If you go

Let’s Review

By diana Saenger An absolute spark in “Sleeping Beauty Wakes” is Aspen Vincent as Beauty “Rose.” A San Diegan, Vincent learned her craft in area productions and went on to became a star on Broadway and in theaters across the nation. She’s adorable, sings beautifully, and has lots of energy as the confused girl who only wants a happy ending. That’s the goal of this show, but it’s subjective to those in the audience. Some patrons might wish they had a scorecard while others will simply enjoy the fine performances and great singing voices. A very talented cast undertakes Rachel Sheinkin’s musi-

The Orderly (Bryce ryness) and Beauty ‘rose’ (aspen Vincent) get acquainted through a song. one of the problems I had with this somewhat disjointed production, which often centers on confusing dreams from all of the patients. Audiences need to understand a lot about the story before it unfolds; for instance that Rose has been asleep for 900 years, and that her father is really a King. Tying this scenario to the lives of patients in a 2011 sleep clinic takes a big leap. The audience also comes to learn, but not necessarily understand, that Rose was somewhat rebel-

cal at the La Jolla Playhouse through Aug. 28. The “tale” (as in fairy) is about a girl who can’t wake up and a father so desperate to have her back he hand carries her into a modern sleep disorders clinic. Her problem is soon linked to those of an assortment of patients at the clinic. Plots centered on someone’s dreams can often be difficult to follow, and that’s

lious about her father’s control back in the old days. The production design team — Riccardo Hernandez, set; Miranda Hoffman, costumes; Christopher Akerlind, lighting; Leon Rothenberg, sound; Peter Nigrini, projection — does a superb job of creating the clinic on stage. As the new patients arrive to take their places in beds assigned by the aloof Doctor (Kecia Lewis-Evans), we can all relate to the clinical procedures. Taking the beds are Murray (Steve Judkins), Harara (Adinah Alexander), Leon

(Jimmy Ray Bennett) and Cheryl (Carrie Manolakas) who share their issues of night terrors, restless leg syndrome, insomnia and sleepwalking. These actors do a super job singing and performing dance routines by choreographer Doug Varone, but the weird dreams they try to explain throughout the show, don’t seem to meld with Rose’s problems and result in the pacing and focus of the play becoming tedious at times. Great performances by Lewis-Evans and The Orderly (Bryce Ryness), constantly rescue the mystifying story. Lewis-Evans is quite amusing as the doctor (and also the bad fairy) who is clueless about this clinic and disinterested in these weird people she cannot “fix.” Her gut-belting and rousing rendition of “Uninvited,” reveals a character who is more than she appears. What a talent! Ryness is terrific as The Orderly and one of the best characters in the show. He, too, has an odd assortment of ailments that produce

surprising reactions – along with lots of laughs. Much to her dad’s dismay, it’s The Orderly who eventually falls for Rose, and who will ultimately give her the kiss that awakens her. Ryness’s take on the sympathetic, amusing oddball is brilliant. Bob Stillman is just as wonderful as the King. His distress over his daughter’s situation in songs such as, “I Think You Understand,” hint there is more to this father than meets the eye.

Statistically speaking, you’ll get a better return on your ad investment. The reasons are simple: 1) You’ll save money not running duplicate ads in 2 papers—in fact, you’ll save a LOT of money by just using The Light ; 2) Your ad will reach most of the La Jolla market, rather than a fraction of it.

1. Put an “irresistible” offer in the headline. Headlines represent 60%80% of an ad’s success. Since people read headlines first, put your offer in the headline. Headlines don’t have to be cleaver or witty words. They simply need to reveal your offer in a straightforward way. 2. Put a second offer in the call to action phrase. To entice people to call or visit your business, “reward” them for response. You can give away coffee mugs, tickets to the movies or a dinner. Like this: “Call Beth at 619-555-5555 now to arrange a tour of our facilities.

Afterward, you’ll receive your FREE Dinner for 2 Gift Certificates to Brando’s Italian Grill.” 3. Use “proof elements” to validate your offer. A great marketer said, “Never make your claim (in the headline) bigger than your proof”. So if you’re offering “60% Off”, explain why... like this: “60% Off all stereo equipment because of our recent fire” Another good proof element is testimonials. Let others brag about you. It’s convincing.
