“construction will not begin until the permits have been obtained and the presidential campaign is finished,” according to a Romney spokesman. Romney, seen outside the home Monday afternoon talking to a tourist, would not comment on the project when approached by a Light reporter. Plans call for demolishing the 3,009-square-foot, single-family residence at 311 Dunemere Drive and replacing it with an 11,062-square-foot, two-story structure.

La Jolla father, son head for Israel despite attacks

■ Bishop’s ready to make run at section title Page A25

By JoE TASh A La Jolla physician and his teenage son planned to board their flight for a trip to Israel Tuesday, in spite of violence occurring in the south of the country after a deadly terrorist attack near the resort town of Eilat last week. “Those of us with strong connections to Israel go with the flow. It’s not going to deter us. It’s not going to deter our friends and rel-

atives in Israel. … it’s an unfortunate part of life,” David Feifel, a professor of psychiatry and neuroscience at UCSD and a practicing physician, said in an interview Monday. Feifel, 48, will meet with professional colleagues and give a talk in Jerusalem during his week-long stay, along with visiting brother, Marty, who lives in Eilat with his family.

Kudos goes this week to the “conversation piece” in front of D.G. Wills Books at 7461 Girard Ave., a dugout canoe atop a wagon wheel, which has an interesting history. “We call it the prairie schooner,” said bookstore owner Dennis Wills, noting the wagon wheel is from a Mormon wagon that made the trip from Illinois to Utah that he purchased from an antique dealer. The dugout, Wills said, was given to him 20 years ago by a client in exchange for $100 worth of books. Wills’ bookstore, which has been in the Village since 1991, periodically hosts author appearances. The bookstore is open 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sundays.

LJ High reports graduation, dropout rates By Marsha sutton using a new tracking and reporting system, the California Department of Education released graduation and dropout rates this month for the class of 2009-2010 showing that La Jolla High school had a graduation rate of 90.1 percent, compared to 74.9 percent for the san Diego unified school District and 74.4 percent for the state. The dropout rate was 5.1 percent for the school, 12.8 percent for the district, and 18.2 percent for the state. The difference between the graduation and dropout rates —- 4.8 percent for La Jolla High, 12.3 for the district and 7.4 for the state -- represents students removed from the cohort for a number of reasons. They may have transferred to a private school, enrolled in a school out of the district, transferred to an institution or health facility, are being home-schooled, moved out of the state or country, or died. students remained in the cohort if they dropped out during that four-year period, completed 12th grade and exited the system without graduating, or took longer than four years to graduate. The cohort is the group of ninth- through 12thgrade students that could potentially graduate during a four-year period, in this case 2006 to 2010. This cohort includes students who entered grades 9, 10, 11 or 12 in 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009, respectively. The general formula used to derive the data, according to the CDE, is the number of cohort members who earned a high school diploma by the end of the 2009-2010 school year, divided by: the number of first-time ninth-graders in the fall of 2006,

The CDE, in a news release [http://www.cde.ca.gov/nr/ne/yr11/yr11rel54.asp], provides a link to DataQuest where graduation and dropout data are available for schools and districts statewide. plus students who transferred in, minus students who were removed from the cohort after transferring to different schools, moving away or dying. Different calculation factors employed this year means that the data cannot be compared to previous years, but this year’s numbers will serve as a baseline for future data, the CDE said. For the first time, students were tracked by school districts upon entering ninth grade in 2006, so the numbers just released are considered more accurate than systems used in the past, although all the numbers are self-reported. The system the state had planned to use to collect data and organize graduation and dropout information was abandoned when it became a victim of California’s budget crisis. so the data reported by the state was provided to the CDE by indi-

vidual districts, which employed their own measuring systems to record graduation and dropout rates. Of the 374 students in the La Jolla High school cohort, the three largest subgroups are whites (numbering 230), Asians (35) and Latinos (84). Whites at La Jolla High had a graduation rate of 94.8 percent and a dropout rate of 3.9 percent. Asians had a graduation rate of 88.6 percent and a dropout rate of 11.4 percent. Latinos had a graduation rate of 78.6 percent and a dropout rate of 7.1 percent. The graduation rate for Asians at La Jolla High was lower than the percentage districtwide. For Latinos, the achievement gap is evident, although less severe than it is throughout the district and statewide.

several streets will be closed for the 12th annual End of summer Fire Run 4Mile. Prospect street from Girard to Fay, the staging and registration area for the event benefiting the san Diego Fire Rescue Foundation, will be closed to traffic from 5:45 a.m. to 8:15 a.m. The event, which begins at 8 a.m. at Girard and Prospect travels west on Prospect to La Jolla Boulevard, left on La Jolla Boulevard to Mission Boulevard. Prospect street from Girard to La Jolla Boulevard will be closed to traffic from 7:45 a.m. to 8:15 a.m. Vehicles will not be allowed to travel southbound on La Jolla Boulevard until around 9 a.m. The runners turn left onto La Jolla Boulevard, utilizing the entire street until Pearl, then the runners will be forced to run in the southbound lanes of La Jolla Boulevard. Police will be at all major intersections to allow vehicles to cross the street if there are no runners in the area.

UC San Diego Foundation names new trustees Three La Jolla residents are among the 10 new trustees named to the UCSD Foundation board: They are Phyllis Epstein, Rudolph Rehm, and Drew Senyei. The foundation, which raises and manages charitable gifts for UCSD, now has 42 members on the board. They oversee the management of approximately $600 million in charitable assets, including $375 million in endowment. For the fiscal year ending June 30, 2011, the campus expects private support to total about $120 million. “The UC San Diego Foundation Board plays a vital role at the university. Given the continuing decline in funding from the state, raising and managing charitable sup-

port is critical to our future,” said Chancellor Marye Anne Fox. “Our trustees are philanthropists, stewards and ambassadors who support the university, and they help others to understand the positive impact UC San Diego has on our region and our world.” The new trustees, one of the largest groups to join the board at one time, represent Phyllis alumni, supporters and Epstein friends of the university and bring a diverse set of skills, perspectives and experiences. The new members include: Epstein is a philanthropist and communi-

From Israel. a1 accomplish with these attacks and we can’t let that happen,” said Ariel, who has been to Israel a number of times before. “there’s a sense of comfort and safety when you go back to your homeland. this is the Jewish state and I’ve never felt out of place or afraid there, and I don’t expect to this time,” he said. Eight Israelis died in thursday’s attacks on civilian buses and a car near Eilat. the Israeli military then launched attacks against suspected terrorists in gaza, and rockets were fired from gaza into Israel. the New York David Feifel times reported Monday that a fragile cease-fire appeared to be taking hold between Israel and Hamas, which rules gaza. David Feifel said his family and friends were not hurt in the attacks, but the violence does take a psychological toll. “Like all Israelis, it’s a jarring experience psychologically. But like all Israelis, they know terrorism is a way of life and the threat is always there. While it jars them, they are determined to live normal lives. they go about their business. thankfully, no close friends or relatives got injured in the attack, (but) it makes them think,” Feifel said of last week’s attacks and the subsequent rocket fire. the son of Holocaust survivors, Feifel was born in Canada. After World War II,

his parents helped establish the state of Israel, and later immigrated, after their first child, Feifel’s older brother, was born. Feifel has lived in La Jolla since 1992 and is married with three children. Feifel said he has been to Israel many times and feels it is generally a safe place, although he is also aware of the volatility of the region and the threat of terrorism. Last summer, Feifel said, his daughter was in Israel when a rocket was fired toward Eilat, but landed in the Red sea, near where she was participating in a youth program. this summer she returned to Israel to volunteer at a home for underprivileged youth. the recent violence does give pause to the couple as their son prepares to spend a year in Israel, Feifel said. “there’s always a risk this incident will be the beginning of something bigger,” he said. Ariel Feifel said he would be studying about Judaism in a small city near Jerusalem over the next year, as a way of strengthening his own personal connection to his faith. He said many Jewish teen-agers from the united states and other parts of the world take a year off after high school to either study or travel in Israel. When he returns to the u.s., Ariel said, he will begin pre-med courses at Columbia university in New York. But for now, he’s looking forward to his time in Israel. His family is convinced the benefits of the experience will outweigh the risks. “It’s always such an incredibly positive experience for the youth, we wouldn’t dream of denying him this opportunity,” David Feifel said.

FROM MANSION, A1 Architect Tony Crisafi, who is handling the design, said the raw figures are somewhat misleading. (He and Drex Patterson own La Jolla based Island Architects.) He said only 7,394 square feet of that total is gross floor area, with the remaining 3,668 square feet taken up by a basement and garage. “It isn’t anything anybody’s even going to see,” he said. “It’s a basement underground.” The remake of the two-bedroom is needed, said Romney campaign spokesman Ryan Williams, because “they need more space to accommodate their five married sons and 16 grandchildren.” The former governor of Massachusetts paid $12 million for the property in May 2008. It sits on a 0.41-acre lot at the end of the Dunemere Street cul de sac. It was formerly owned by former Mayor Maureen O’Connor and her husband Robert Peterson, who used it as a rental/vacation home, and Dr. JT Lipe, a prominent local physician. It is adjacent to a home formerly owned by actor Cliff Robertson. Mark Quint, owner of Quint Contemporary Art, who lives near the Romney property, said he is concerned about the bulk and scale of Romney’s project. “It’s a terrible idea: I think it will be very disruptive to the neighbor-

hood,” he said though he conceded, “private property is private” and said Romney is likely to “get it by the zoning.” Quint acknowledged he is biased against “ridiculously big houses. I’d tear down our house and build a tiny house.” But other Romney neighbors, like Michele Perillo, publisher of Southwest Style Magazine in Scottsdale, Ariz., couldn’t be more pleased that the man who was the 70th governor of Massachusetts

from 2003 to 2007 appears to be settling in to stay in the Jewel. “It sounds enormous when you say four times,” she said. “But he’s making it the same size as the rest of the homes that are oceanfront. They have a very large family and a lot of people come to visit and it’s a great piece of property and it warrants renovating and putting some more livable space in.” Perillo believes the majority of her neighbors are “extremely supportive” of Romney’s expansion

plans. She praised Island for being “extremely environmentally friendly and sensitive.” The city of San Diego’s Development Services Department sent out a document on Aug. 19 called a Draft Mitigated Negative Declaration outlining the points of possible environmental impact and concluding there are none that can’t be compensated for. Publication of the document triggers a 20-day public review. After that, Crisafi said approval of Romney’s residential expansion project would go before a city hearing officer. According to the draft document, the Romney’s proposed building has been designed so as not to exceed 30 feet in height at its highest point. Proposed grading on the 17,844-square-foot lot would cover 6,000 square feet — 34 percent of the site. Grading depths would be a maximum of 12 feet to accommodate the basement. Joe LaCava, past president of La Jolla Community Planning Association (LJCPA), which makes landuse recommendations to the city, said under the city’s zoning regulations, the Romney property is allowed an 8,400-square-foot house, not including a garage or basement. Noting basements are an increasingly popular way to gain livable

space without exceeding the zoning allowance, LaCava said it is a contemporary trend to try and fit in with the bulk and scale of the neighborhood. “The application gained the attention of the neighbors over the course of three Development Permit Review subcommittee hearings, but no objections were raised when the application was before the full LJCPA,” he said. “The planning group forwarded a unanimous recommendation for approval to the city.” LaCava said the project’s coastal development permit is under the purview of the City of San Diego, which has not yet held a public hearing on the application. He said the city’s decision could be appealed to the Coastal Commission because the property lies between the ocean and the “first roadway.” The existing Romney residence designed by master architect Lillian Rice was originally built in 1936. Building permit records indicate the home was added to and remodeled on several occasions, including a full remodel in 1986. The city has determined the site is not eligible for historical designation for architecture or as the work of a master architect because “the sum of the modifications caused the integrity of the original building design to be completely lost and no longer reflective of the work of the master architect.”

Eat like a Marine scrippsHealth, Med Assets put a twist on donors thank you By Kathy Day kday@lajollalight.com scripps Health and Med Asset officials found an unusual way to say thanks to donors who raised more than $157,000 to honor the Marines of Camp Pendleton’s 3rd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment. they invited drill instructors to teach them to “Eat like a Marine — and then “treated” guests to a tasting of military rations. Chris Van gorder, scrippsHealth CEO and president, told the audience that he and others — including Dr. Michael sise, a battletrained surgeon who works at scripps Mercy — wanted to find a way to welcome home the 3/5 Darkhorse Battalion. the unit, which returned in April after seven months in sanqin, Afghanistan, sustained more losses than any other unit serving in Afghanistan over the last 10 years. they came up with the idea of raising money so the battalion and family members could celebrate at a Marine Corps Birthday Ball in Las Vegas, and thursday’s gathering was to salute those who joined the effort, which will include finding additional ways to support the 3/5.

Assets divisions, captured the sense of the event when he said, “I am humbled by the dedication and service of our men and women.” While the words of those on the program — including Capt. Matthew Peterson who commanded the 3/5 on deployment — spoke of the commitment and sacrifice of the Marines, the efforts they gave to secure the Afghanistan town and the losses the 3/5 suffered, it was a video compilation showing their time on deployment that moved the crowd. some dabbed tears from their eyes, others sat up a little straighter, all while about a dozen young Marines sat quietly watching the scenes that surely hit home. At its conclusion, there was a sustained standing ovation. the mood lightened considerably when the

Fernando Rafael. Immediately they stepped off the stage into the faces of Vangorder and the other executives in the front row. With certain commands of, “I’m looking at you … Answer me… Do YOu understand,” they “taught” them how to open, “warm” and eat a meal of cheese and crackers, pound cake and the main ration. “start enjoying your crackers … you will enjoy your crackers,” Zapata shouted. “Do you understand?” the response came from the entire crowd: “Yes sir.”

And guests in the schaetzel Center at scripps Memorial Hospital were “treated” to a sampling of MREs. At each station, a young Marine seemed to enjoy the moment of handing a sample to executives, guests and scripps staffers who tasted such rations as vegetarian (supposedly) lasagna to pork ribs. Noses turned up and chuckles were heard all around — along with sincere expressions of gratitude for the men’s service to their country. the other speakers were Rear Adm. C. Forrest Faison III, Commander of Navy Medicine West and Naval Medical Center san Diego, and Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher, himself a former Marine.

Bishop’s student is youngest presenter at science conference

Garibaldi, California’s state fish, a combination of fierce and beautiful

Natural La Jolla By Kelly StewaRt While you are looking over the railing down into the water at the Cove, you may happen to see bright orange flashes darting among the kelp and seaweed. these vivid spots of color are evidence of our state marine fish, the garibaldi, Hypsypops rubicundus. Named after an Italian national hero (giuseppe garibaldi, who famously wore bright red shirts), our garibaldi is also a fierce fighter. Each male garibaldi sets up a territory on the reef and guards it against any invaders, including humans, who sometimes may experience a nibble if they get too close. the male is fastidious and when it comes time for constructing his nest, he takes the work very seriously. His territory is generally a sheltered spot with some smooth rock wall. Here he carefully trims the seaweed to about an inch long and clears all creatures (sea urchins and sea stars) and debris from the area. Next he must attract a mate to lay eggs in his nest — he does this by sticking his fins

a male garibaldi fiercely protects the bright yellow eggs in his nest, which is constructed of trimmed red algae and cleared of debris. Jeremy W. smith straight up, making a thumping sound with his teeth and swimming loops over the tidy nest. the first female is the most difficult to convince since females prefer to lay eggs in a nest where other females have already laid eggs. up to 20 females will lay their eggs in one male’s nest and he will guard these eggs ferociously until they hatch about two to three weeks later. Juvenile garibaldis have bright blue spots all over their orange bodies, along with blue-tinged fins. Kelly Stewart, Ph.D. is a postdoc with NOAA’s Southwest Fisheries Science Center.

Varun sharma, a senior at the Bishop’s school, became the first high school student to present his science project at a major meeting featuring mitochondrial research. Mitochondria are the powerhouses of the cell and responsible for energy production for our organs to function, to perform athletic activities and even for our brains to work effectively. At the June meting of the united Mitochondrial Foundation meeting in Illinois he presented his project, in which he found that exercise in mice did indeed lead to less anxiety and better cognitive skills. surprisingly, the exercised mice had evidence of improved mitochondrial function in the liver but not in the muscle or the brain. the investigators thus found a novel way that exercise may initially change liver function and that the combined integra-

Varun, who is also one of the top squash players of southern California, last summer worked closely with mentors Robert Naviaux, M.D., Ph.D., and Victoria Risbrough, Ph.D., to test whether exercise may benefit emotional and higher brain function via changes in mitochondrial

activity. this novel project combined the expertise of two separate labs at uCsD that had not previously worked together. Among over 100 abstract submissions from leading investigators throughout the world, Varun’s abstract was selected as one of the top 40 and as the first author he presented the project in the poster competition.

New HIV antibodies could aid vaccine

Research Report By Lynne Friedmann Isolation of 17 novel antibodies capable of neutralizing a broad spectrum of HIV variants renews hope that a vaccine may one day be designed against the virus that causes AIDS. The new antibodies, large protein molecules that bind to pathogens and flag them for destruction, were isolated from blood serum samples collected in a continuing global search for broadly neutralizing antibodies (bNAbs). The newly discovered antibodies provide a new set of targets for the design of vaccine candidates that can elicit similar antibodies to protect people from contracting HIV. Some of the bNAbs blocked HIV infection of cells as much as 10 to 100 times as potently as previously discovered bNAbs. A team of researchers, at and associated with the International

AIDS Vaccine Initiative, The Scripps Research Institute, and biotech companies Theraclone Sciences and Monogram Biosciences Inc., participated in the study. Findings are reported in the journal Nature. News release at http://bit.ly/pnrDgJ.

n Wearable electronics Research conducted by the UCSD Jacobs School of Engineering has demonstrated that a thin flexible, skin-like device, mounted with tiny electronic components, is capable of acquiring electrical signals from the brain and skeletal muscles and potentially transmitting the information wirelessly to an external computer. The device is made of a thin sheet of plastic covered with a water-soluble layer that sticks to skin. Once applied, the plastic dissolves, leaving the electronic components imprinted into the skin like a temporary tattoo. If the technology proves out, patients struggling with reduced motor or brain function, or research subjects, could be monitored in their natural environment outside the lab. The technology is described in

n Simplifying chemical modification Scientists at The Scripps Research Institute have devised a much easier technique for performing a chemical modification used widely in the synthesis of drugs and other products. The modification adds a molecule to the original compound, often making it more stable — and, for a drug, keeping it in the body longer. Current, standard procedures to achieve the same result are complicated and time consuming involving gases and associated hardware, high heat, metal catalysts and oxidants. With the new technique, chemists can perform this feat using a relatively simple, safe, room-temperature procedure and can even select the site of the modification on the target compound. The method is described in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. News release at http://bit.ly/qGGArn. — Lynne Friedmann is a science writer based in Solana Beach.

‘7 Biggest Mistakes’ author to speak on estate planning Estate planning is nothing new, but the perceived need for it has waned in recent years due largely to the current (2010) $5,000,000 exclusion amount per person. However, there is a quickly growing reemergence of “estate tax consciousness” as the “exclusion amount” is currently slated to reset to $1 million per person on Jan. 1, 2012, about only 16 months from now. Enter Sandeep Varma’s 2007 book: “The 7 Biggest Mistakes Trustees Often Make — And How to Sandeep Avoid Them,” a quickVarma read for anyone concerned about changes in tax law or serving as a trustee. Local wealth strategist Sandeep Varma has spent over 15 years talking to public audiences specifically about his experiences witnessing poorly planned estates crumbling into dust. After more than 500 public seminars on the subject, Varma published his first book in 2007, highlighting real-life

examples where families either planned poorly or simply failed to plan for the efficient passing of their assets after death. Varma’s “7 Biggest Mistakes” is a good read for anyone interested in the details of estate planning and a mustread for any trustee and anyone who has either set up a trust or who will ever serve as a trustee. The book is critically acclaimed by some of Varma’s more notable peers because it speaks directly to those who will face estate planning issues and it does so in very easy-tounderstand style. Varma will give two lectures on the ”7 Biggest Mistakes” at the Mission Valley Courtyard by Marriott from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m.on Aug. 30 and from 6 to 8:45 p.m. on Sept. 1.

La Jolla Institute opens center to study how genes trigger diseases La Jolla Institute for Allergy & Immunology recently opened a new center that aims at pinpointing the specific genes involved in causing immune diseases, cancer and other diseases. Utilizing RNA interference (RNAi), the new RNAi Center is one of a small group of facilities dedicated to this technology worldwide. Sonia Sharma, Ph.D., the RNAi Center’s scientific director, said in a press release that “RNAi lets us explore the function of each gene, so we can determine how it fits into the disease process.” Using RNAi, researchers can shut off individual genes, one at a time, in order to figure out which functions they control, she explained, noting that once medical researchers know a certain gene is a major contributor to a specific disease process, they can make it a target for future drug development. Andrew Z. Fire and Craig C. Mello won the 206 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2006 “for their discovery of RNA interference — gene silencing by double-stranded RNA,” according to the prize committee’s website. Mitchell Kronenberg, Ph.D., the La Jolla Institute’s president and chief scientific officer , said the opening “represents a milestone for fueling research on the genetic basis of diseases.” He is co-principal investigator with Anjana Rao, Ph.D., a prominent genetics and cell biology researcher recruited from Harvard Medical School last year. The center was funded through a $12.6 million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009

The center is designed to be a resource for scientists at academic research institutions on the Torrey Pines Mesa and around the country, according to the press release, which noted that Scripps Research Institute scientists, David Nemazee and Changchun Xiao, Ph.D.s, are working with LJIAI to lead one of the center’s first four projects.

Drawing on the La Jolla Institute’s immunology expertise, the projects are aimed at discovering how the body recognizes bacteria and viruses and fights infectionsand at understanding how the immune system can sometimes hurt the body. They also will explore what genes cause these problems, which underlie the development of autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis, type 1 diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis — all areas of focus for LJIAI.

we’re here with answers to your first questions our view Question: Could you tell me what the latest is on the Venter Institute going in next to Allen Field? What is the status on that project? Answer: uCsD officials report that “The J. Craig Venter Institute (JCVI) began construction related activities (fencing of the site, site clearance, erosion control, etc.) earlier this year. A pre-construction survey revealed the presence of coastal Cali-

fornia gnatcatchers. Given that the breeding season for this federally recognized threatened bird extends from February to september, on-site construction activities for this summer were minimized. Construction is anticipated to resume in full this fall, including a formal ground breaking ceremony. (Date has not been set yet.) Q: What became of the “For

Lease” sign in front of the place on Prospect street where Panini’s used to be? A: The sign is down because a lease has been signed for a new restaurant. Amici’s East Coast Pizzeria, Inc. expects to open its first southern California restaurant in late February or early March in the building at 811 Prospect st. that was home to IHOP before Panini’s moved in.

Looting and rioting in England. Revolution and civilian massacres in Libya and syria. Northern European countries itching to secede from the union in order to effect an efficient Eurozone workout. Emerging elements of the third millennium, the tech revolution and global trade are flowering and festering into a glorious, yet tawdry and tremulous new modern age. The san Diego redistricting process rumbles along, on a bumpy road whose hopeful terminus is a place of constructive representation free of gerrymandering. Bumpy roads are literally par for the course. Our lovely community is faced with macro-economic uncertainty and unprecedented financial weakness at the levels of federal, state and local governments. As the world seems to be falling apart, La Jolla is showing signs of coming together. Tuning up at the music festival, jitterbugging at concerts in the park, wading with friendly sharks, going on picnics, cycling, swimming, surfing, toasting the green flash at a coastal cookout all tend to evoke happy days and a sunny atmosphere. This summer’s cycle of community cultural events, fine weather and even finer civic meetings is bringing new encouragement and hope to the heart of this volunteer.

board of directors, the La Jolla Village Merchants Association’s new executive director, Rosemary Murrieta, is directing the organization along the lines of success and true community sustainability under the catchphrase “Bring the Village back to La Jolla.” In addition to creating special events and methodically attracting and supporting healthy new businesses, the group is building a new website and bringing friendly, beautiful, posh green village branding to a hopeful new La Jolla generation. The group is resolutely pursuing community partnerships, infrastructure improvements, beautification, and a sweeping new set of green initiatives aimed at further developing La Jolla as a uniquely pleasing, healthy, friendly, fascinating, fashionable, fun and sustainable community. The venerable La Jolla Town Council (60 years old this year) is tasked with the mission to be a unifying voice for La Jolla. Working with dedicated trustees, newly appointed Executive Director Valerie strocco is boosting morale all around, creating and anchoring successful initiatives and coordinating steady flight for the Town Council as it laboriously lurches back towards financial solvency.

By Joe Panetta President/CEO, BIOCOM

The nature of san Diego’s life science community was evident to me recently as BIOCOM hosted three outof-town venture capital firms for a day of company presentations and discussion. One of the VCs commented that such an event would not be likely to take place in san Francisco because that biotech hub does not possess the collaborative spirit and geographic concentration of companies that makes san Diego’s life science cluster unique. That was good to hear. In the wake of Biogen-Idec closing its san Diego office, I’ve heard people question whether this cluster is making real progress. BiogenIdec, one of the world’s largest biotechnology companies, was founded in san Diego two decades ago as IDEC. It was IDEC that commercialized the blockbuster non-Hodgkin lymphoma drug Rituxin. IDEC made investments in a state-of-theart manufacturing facility in Oceanside and an extensive campus in La Jolla. In 2003, IDEC acquired Boston-based Biogen, turning over management of the combined companies to executives in Boston, who took little interest in san Diego. When this original Biogen-Idec management decision was made, and again, when Biogen-Idec pulled up

stakes in san Diego, the life science community and its investors wondered whether san Diego was ever destined to never have an “anchor” multinational biotech company? Those who judge this life science hub by the size of its companies are missing the mark. The VCs at the BIOCOM event made it clear that they have no interest in creating large companies. Their goal is to move promising biomedical inventions from research to development, while providing a return to their limited partners. The VCs see their role as funding the company to a point when larger entities, such as pharmaceutical companies, can take a product through the regulatory approval process and commercialization. VCs tell me that they look to san Diego as an innovation center with a wealth of intellectual property and a seasoned talent base — the perfect mix for creating new companies. They say that relationships between universities, research institutes, big pharmaceutical companies, laboratory tool companies and contract research organizations — all of which exist here — are a strong foundation for current and future growth. As long as there are jobs created, potential new products advanced to benefit consumers, and a return on the investments made by VCs, I’m not convinced that this is a bad thing.

Charles Edwards left mark as ‘leader of leaders’ BY DAVE SCHWAB daves@lajollalight.com Charles C. Edwards, M.D. who presided as The Scripps Research Institute became the largest private biomedical research institution in the nation, died Aug. 7 at his La Jolla home after a long illness. He was 87. Described by his friends as “a giant in his field” who was a formidable leader with a soft spot for the poor, the former president/ CEO of Scripps Clinic had lived in La Jolla for 35 years. Born in Nebraska on Sept. 16, 1923, his lengthy and varied career included service as a Marine for two years in the Korean War, a stint with the CIA and time on the staff of the American Medical Association and with the management firm of Booz, Allen and Hamilton. In 1969, he was appointed by President Nixon to be the commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration. In 1971, he became assistant secretary for health in the U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare. He was named president and CEO of Scripps Clinic and Research Foundation in 1977, and, In 1991, he led the formation of the Scripps Institution of Science and Medicine, retiring in 1993. Edwards’ son, David, said his father did a political about-face after working in the fed-

eral government. “He started out as a Republican working in the Nixon and Ford administrations and he became a liberal Democrat,” he said. “He was always proud of being a liberal, and part of it was he thought government had a responsibility to take care of people who were indigent.” Describing Edwards as a “giant in his field” and “generous” in his support of non-

profits, Hugh Davies, director of the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, said his friend of 28 years could also be “intimidating” until you got to know him. “He had an extremely formal never-a-hairout-of-place, almost-military bearing,” he noted. “But as you got to know him, he had an extremely flexible mind. He just was an extremely smart, engaged guy and though he seemed tough and unapproachable, that was not the case.” David Edwards characterized his dad as “a real institution guy.” “I was always struck by the loyalty he was able to create,” he said. “Young protégées who worked with him trusted his instincts, but he also trusted his own sense of what was right and wrong. He built Scripps into the institution that it is.” Richard A. Collato, former president/CEO of the YMCA of San Diego County, called Edwards a mentor, a confidant, a source of inspiration and a true leader of leaders. “He had a soft spot in his heart for the socioeconomically disadvantaged, helping the poor and the less advantaged was in his DNA,” he said noting Edwards’ personal life “exemplified that of a person who was trying to make the country, and the world, a better place to live for all people regardless of means. The YMCA wouldn’t be as strong as it is today without Charlie Edwards.”

Roger Cornell, consulting director in the Division of Dermatology and Cutaneous Surgery at Scripps Clinic who worked with Edwards, said he was visionary and ahead of his time. “He talked about the importance of integrating medicine in the early ‘90s and having been head of the FDA, he realized the importance of having centers of excellence and integrating medical care,” Cornell said. “He really made a change in medicine.” Cornell added Edwards was incredibly devoted to his wife Sue, adding he marveled at how “compassionate they were for each other.” “I revered the man, I already miss him,” said Davies. He is survived by his wife of 66 years, Sue Kruidenier Edwards; their four children, Timothy Kruidenier Edwards (Pat), Charles Cornell Edwards, Jr. (Karin), Nancy Edwards Schned (Eric), David Busby Edwards (Marketa); grandchildren Scott Edwards, Hayley Vaughan, Emily Edwards Ingham, Molly Schned, Dan Schned, Alex Schned, Nick Edwards, and Melody Edwards; and his cousin Cornell Arendt. He was preceded in death by his brother Keith. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that contributions be sent to San Diego Hospice at www.sdhospice.org or Voices for Children San Diego www.speakupnow.org.

LYNN SCHENK Vice Chair, Board of Directors In a state that prides itself on innovative and unique problem solving, highspeed rail is the solution to many of our state’s current and future problems. High-speed rail is poised to bring tens of thousands of good, family-supporting jobs to our state — jobs not just to build the trains and the train line, but also jobs to operate and maintain it. Building just the first phase of the project — from Los Angeles to San Francisco — will mean nearly 100,000 jobs during peak construction. Why else do Californians support high-speed rail? It’ll improve air quality, lessen congestion on our roads and support transportation needs for our state’s rapid population growth. The system will run 100 percent on electricity, which means that electricity can be produced from clean sources like wind, solar and more, improving our state’s air quality year after year. Some say why not widen our roads and build more airports? Won’t that be cheaper? Building more roads is an option, but also consider that a freeway requires significantly more land than we propose for high-speed rail — which will be

120 feet or less. What’s more, the cost of building a high-speed rail system is still a cheaper and better alternative to widening freeways throughout the state and building more airports. Over the next two decades, California’s highspeed train will alleviate the need to spend more than $100 billion to build 3,000 miles of new freeway, five airport runways and 90 departure gates. It is entirely appropriate that no project of this scope is going to be free of debate, some things are indisputable. We know that California is growing. We expect about 50 million people in this state by 2035. Those people — and the goods and services they need —will have to move around our state. Without question, California’s highspeed rail system is a job creator. It will

improve our environment and get Californians where they need to go. In the end, it is a safe, clean, fast and affordable way to travel that improves our economy and quality of life.

WindanSea members surf with the kids Editor’s note: Scot Cherry of WindanSea Surf Club is credited as being a founder of the WindanSea Surf Club’s Kids Day at the Beach, although he says Rob Luscomb and Jon Roseman came to him with the idea. Here’s a portion of his story about the project that brings children from St. Vincent De Paul center to the beach for a day of surfing. On Saturday, they celebrated the 25th anniversary of the event. In the Spring of 1985 I was in a horrific motorcycle accident, died twice on the way to the hospital, was revived both times, but slipped into a three-week long coma. My father was chief of surgery for Scripps Memorial La Jolla at the time, and was told I wouldn’t live — but even if I did I would be a vegetable. I wouldn’t know my own name. I survived — by the grace of God, as I have a plastic plate that replaced about one-quarter of my skull. But shortly after I was released from the hospital my brother-in-law passed away from a heart attack at the age of 29, leaving my younger sister a widow with a 3-year-old girl and four months pregnant. I was left wondering why God had left me alive and taken him. I started searching for answers and a way to give back. I went down to the St. Vincent De Paul in the Fall of ‘85 to help out and was told they needed a group of people to set up and/or break down for their Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas parties they have

for the kids living there — I spoke to the guys in the WindanSea Surf Club and got an enthusiastic response…. And we started with that. Our hearts really went out to the kids. In January of 1986 the then-president of the club, Rob Luscomb, and vice-president, Jon Roseman, came to me with the idea of giving the kids surf lessons. I thought it was a great idea,

Ready to run — Bishop’s cross country eyes CIF title Boys team returns two of county’s top runners By Phil Dailey phildailey@lajollalight.com Cross country is generally viewed as an individual sport, but this year, it’s all about the team for The Bishop’s school’s boys cross country team. Will Wilde Botta and Patrick Hoagland are the top returning runners in san Diego’s Division IV this season, but they’ll be the first to say that they want the entire team to succeed and make a run at the CIF title. Despite the Knights’ two seniors finishing in the top two spots at sDsCIF finals last November, they placed third as a team and just missed out on the state tournament. Botta and Hoagland, along with junior Michael Pettit, went on to compete at state,

but because of the team’s third-place finish in the section, they were not able to compete as a team. This year they hope to put an end to Country Day’s five-year run as CIF champs and head coach Adam Weiner thinks he has the team that is capable of reaching that goal. “unless something doesn’t go well this year, I think those guys should be going (to state) as a team,” said Weiner, now in his sixth season as the Knights’ coach. “We have some good guys coming up and they are very dedicated. I think this is arguably the best boys team we have ever had here.” Botta may not only be the best runner in the section, but he’s up there with the best in the state. Last season he took fourth at state with a time of 15 minutes, 50 seconds at the 5K course in Fresno. The three runners who

From Bishop’s, A25 placed ahead of him all graduated. For Hoagland, he wasn’t far off the pace placing 17th at state with a time of 16:11. the expectations are high for the Knights’ duo to lead the team to bigger goals this year. “When you finish 1-2 as juniors, everyone expects you to finish 1-2 as seniors,” Hoagland said. “I think it helps because we feel like we should finish 1-2 (again). It’s good pressure.” But for the team to unseed Country Day this season, they will have to lean on Pettit as well as a few others to put in times that would boost their team score. Also returning to lead that effort is junior thomas King and sophomores Alex Kilman and Matt Healey. those three all finished in the top 30 last season in the section finals. “the core of our team is back,” Botta said. “Last year we missed as a team by four points. We’re thinking this year, with the guys we got coming back … we’re really hoping to make it.” But it all starts at the top with Botta and Hoagland, who met at Bishop’s in the seventh grade and since joining the cross country team in ninth grade, have been good friends. “they are really good examples and team leaders and that has brought in the younger ones to

On the individual level, Botta and Hoagland have a lot to gain this season as they are both seeking to run at the college level. they both know that they’ll have a bullseye on their back in every meet they compete in based on their past results.

“We’re happy that we have gotten to the point that we are the guys to beat,” Botta said. “But at the same time, you have that big target on your back.

Deirdre Andrews marks 40 years directing her Young Actors in La Jolla Deirdre Andrews was raised in La Jolla in the 1950s and ’60s. The oldest of five children in the Scanlon Clan, her first directing experience came from garage shows put together with the help of Deirdre her mother, Kay. These Andrews productions usually featured her sister Happy in the starring roles and her three brothers creating the comedic moments. Andrews was also a part of Mrs. Reid’s La Jolla Junior Theatre, which staged shows at the Contemporary Museum of Art. Andrews attended Stella Maris Academy and then went on to Bishop’s for high school. She later graduated from USC, receiving her B.A. in Theater Arts. After spending time acting with a company from USC in Europe, she returned to study at the American Conservatory Theatre in San Francisco before settling back in La Jolla to start Young Actor’s Workshop in 1971. The company is embarking on its 40 year with a return to productions of “The Wizard of Oz,” its first show. The company’s original home was in the hall at Mary Star of the Sea. Andrews has two grown children, and said she loves the idea that they are the family’s fifth generation La Jollans! What brought you to La Jolla? My great grandparents came to La Jolla in the early 1900s and built a summer home, The Sea Cliff, in the days when the houses had names. This was a family home for decades and both my grandmother and mother spent their summers at The Sea Cliff. I came to La Jolla as a toddler in 1949 when my parents decided to settle here. What makes this area special to you? The beauty of the sea, the gardens, the picturesque cottages, my church, our amazing community … we definitely live in paradise! How would you improve the area? I would add more of the arts in our schools. So many children learn through experiencing the various art forms, and I am concerned that

Charley, Gloria Melville gather family for 60th anniversary

La Jolla Cultural Partners

By KirBy BrooKs Most mornings, you’ll find Charley and Gloria Melville at Mass at All Hallows Church, but on July 31, it was an extra special Mass for the couple because on that day, they renewed their wedding vows to celebrate 60 years together. Born in Elmira, New York, Charley entered the U.S. Navy in 1944 and received his gold wings in July 1947. He wed Gloria four years later and says that during his 22 years of active service — during which he flew from 14 different aircraft carriers as well as land bases in the U.S., North Africa, Spain, France, Italy and Cuba — the best thing that ever happened to him was meeting and marrying Gloria, who hails from Pueblo, Colo. Though the Melvilles’ wedding date is Aug. 11, on July 29 they celebrated their union by embarking upon the Spirit of San Diego Harbor Cruise with their children and seven grandchildren — hitting the dance floor with everyone one of them! Gloria and Charley have four daughters — Cheryl Wendy (Jenner), Debbie Anne (Beacham), Mary Margaret (Peggy Stern), and Heather Marie (Bloemperk) — and Charley has always complimented his Navy wife for giving birth to all

their daughters on weekends, holidays or on shore duty, so he never missed a day of flying for the Navy. Daughter Cherie Wendy passed away in 2007, but her son, Matthew Jenner, remains a La Jolla resident. Debbie and her husband Louis call La Jolla home, along with their three children Alex, Marion and Siena. Peggy and her husband Russ live in San Diego. Heather and her husband Ron live in Brussels, Belgium with their three boys, dubbed by their grandparents as the “Brussels Sprouts.” After moving around wherever Charley was stationed, the Melville family settled in La Jolla in 1966 and quickly became involved with All Hallows Catholic Church. Gloria was elected president of the church’s Women’s Guild in 1969 and in 1976, the couple was asked to become members of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem, a Roman Catholic organization dating back to the 11th century. July 31 wasn’t the first time Charley, 85, and Gloria, 80, said, “I do” again. They were married in Jacksonville, Fla. in 1951 and through the years have restated their “promise” many times. “When we go to a wedding, we use it as an opportunity to renew

that their faith has been a large part of their staying power. That, and their ability to balance each other out. “Charley is so positive.

His humor keeps us on an even keel,” Gloria said, adding, “We live thanking God for what we have.” The Melvilles are also proof that the advice “forgive and forget” and “never go to bed angry” works for a reason, although Charley jokes, “one time when we were in a fight, I didn’t sleep for a week!” The couple also praises Cardinal John J. O’Connor of New York City for impacting their marriage and fostering commitment to their faith. The couple met O’Connor in the 1960s and their “faith blossomed.” “He has taught us what it means to have a good Catholic marriage,” Charley said. In 2008, Charley made his bucket list of places to visit and things to do, meeting up with his brothers John, 84, and Roger, 77, on the East Coast to visit the farms of their Civil War ancestors in Pennsylvania and New York. Together, Gloria and Charley have researched and visited Marian shrines (places that honor Mary, the mother of Jesus) in various countries, and driven to military cemeteries and war memorials throughout Europe. They said their family motto has been “Faith, family, friends and fun” for 60 years now … and holding.

Scout organizes spruce up project at Mount Soledad Park By Emily DERuy the entrance to Mount soledad Natural Park got a facelift on saturday, Aug. 13, from a team of Boy scouts and their friends and families. Organized by Nick Vandendriesse, a 17-year-old in La Jolla’s troop 506 for his Eagle scout project, the volunteers spent hours clearing walkways, repairing benches and refurbishing the faded sign at the entrance to the park. “A local spot to hike is hard to find these days and I am happy to make an effort to preserve one,” said Vandendriesse, a senior at La Jolla High school and captain of the lacrosse team. Vandendriesse and his volunteers worked to clear overgrown trails that previously forced joggers and people with strollers and pets into oncoming traffic. By paring back weeds and invasive plants, the group preserved the natural plant life of the park. Rebuilding weathered benches and painting the entrance sign also enhanced the area. Vandendriesse developed the project in an attempt to bring the appearance of the park into alignment with the purpose of the park: to honor war veterans. “Local visitors and travelers from all over the world come to enjoy the view and military memorial

Long used by airplanes and ships for navigation, as well as serving as part of the military’s early-warning defense system in World War II, it was first used as a memorial site in 1914. In 1954, a controversial cross was dedicated to honor Korean War veterans, and in 2006, the memorial was transferred to the federal government as a National Veterans Memorial. the site now boasts an American flag and six concentric walls with the names and photos of veterans who have served in any branch of the military. Hiking and camping have played major roles in Vandendriesse’s scouting experience, making the revitalization of Mount soledad a natural choice for his Eagle project. A scout since 2005, he worked his way through the ranks and merit badges

The Scouts repaired six benches and added new redwood slats, which was not easy work, due to the rusted bolts and splintering wood. Nick Vandendriesse wears the safety glasses, center. Courtesy that pave the way to the Eagle. After developing the idea for his Eagle project, Vandendriesse met with and gained the approval of the City of san Diego and the La Jolla Parks and Beach Committee in June. In July and early August, he spent time recruiting volunteers and gathering supplies, before executing his project on Aug.13. An Eagle scout board of review will determine in the fall whether Van-

dendriesse has satisfied all the requirements needed to obtain the Eagle scout rank, the highest in Boy scouting. Boy scouts of America, which celebrated its 100-year anniversary in 2010, has not made the road to becoming an Eagle scout easy, and only about five percent of all scouts earn the award. troop 506 is working to increase that statistic. Chartered 48 years ago at

La Jolla united Methodist Church, where the scouts still meet on Monday evenings, the troop has helped 71 young men become Eagle scouts. Of the 37 active scouts registered to the troop, more than half are expected to earn the Eagle scout ranking. “Boys may join scouts at the age of 11 and have until the age of 18 to achieve the rank of Eagle,” said Rebecca Cosford, advancement chairperson for troop 506. “Of our scouts who were active in 2004, 69 percent have achieved this rank, and during 2010, 10 of our scouts advanced to the rank of Eagle.” simon Andrews, assistant scoutmaster, said the experience of becoming Eagle scouts leaves boys like Vandendriesse with far more than the plaque and pin they receive upon completion of their board of review. “the purpose of our Eagle projects is community service, and the experience each scout gets when he has to plan the project, coordinate with community and city officials, budget and raise money to fund the project, motivate and supervise crews to assemble tools and materials, and to do the work is an extremely valuable life experience,” simon said. “It inspires the rest of us to do what we can to assist.”

The screening of Cathy Alberich’s documentary “Ready to Wear,” which follows three women from both sides of the border united by their love of vintage clothing, inspired a unique installation in the museum’s downstairs thoughtLAB, a reading room used to give visitors a deeper look into the exhibition on view. Mannequins wearing garments from Tijuana’s clothing designers and a multimedia presentation will showcase how fashion has inspired art and film in the region. On the adjacent Miles Terrace, guests may watch a fashion show at 8 p.m. There will also be a cash bar and DJ-spun music. Festival tickets are $5, and free to museum members. MCAsD’s Film Program is made possible by grant support from The James Irvine Foundation and contributors to MCAsD’s Annual Fund.

From AcAdemy, B1 more cash. Their goal is to find a philanthropist to fund the school because grant monies are becoming scarce, and the Italian government declines to fund projects overseas. According to Williamson, the idea for the school came to the colleagues as they worked on their master’s degrees. “Nicolette, Rossella, and I completed our degrees at the university of Venice in 2010 by defending a thesis that was a comprehensive business plan to start a bilingual elementary school in San Diego,” she said. “As we were gathering data and conducting our research to write the thesis, we realized we could be on to something.” Williamson explained The Italian American Academy is a private, not-for-profit school with a mission to “merge the rigorous European curriculum with the dynamic American teaching style in a nurturing environment.” Williamson explained the decision to become a private school was reached to avoid the red-tape from state regulations and the federal law “No Child Left Behind.” The academy will offer two programs to accommodate children at different levels of proficiency — one for the child who is an “absolute beginner,” and one for the child who already speaks Italian. Class size will be limited to 20 students. The three women have operated as a skeleton crew to carry out the plan. “We joke right now that we are the founders, the board members, the teachers, the staff, and the janitors,” Williamson laughed. She noted that San Diego State university professor Clarissa Clo will serve as the

However, Williamson credits two others for their volunteer work —graphic designer Carol Carlisle Nuñez and attorney Maxwell Anastopulos. “I regularly establish charities and other non-profit corporations on a pro bono basis to benefit the community,” Anastopulos said. “I know many in the San Diego Italian community and understand this school will provide an education that is desired by many families.” Williamson agrees that there is a strong Italian community in town. The trio is working with the Italian Cultural Center of San Diego, where they said they’ve discovered two sets of clients. “The older generation wants to reconnect to their Italian heritage by learning the language, and that group expresses regret that their parents did not teach them Italian during their youth,” Williamson said. “And, there’s a new wave of Italian immigrants who wish their children had an Italian school to attend.”

lthough we missed National S’mores Day on Aug. 10, we can celebrate it belatedly this Monday, conveniently named “National Toasted Marshmallow Day.” As the summer winds down, let’s pay tribute to this season’s quintessential treat. How did it all begin? Maybe one day Jet-Puffed called Nabisco Honey Grahams and Hershey’s Chocolate Bar and said, “Let’s party!” Naaah. The marriage of marshmallow, chocolate and cookie occurred in the late 1800s, introduced by a Scottish company who marketed Tunnock Teacakes, layering a marshmallow on a crispy biscuit then enveloping the treat in dark chocolate. Moon Pies, an American knockoff, followed in the Roaring ’20s. But the first mention of s’mores and the recipe for this decadent sandwich appeared in a 1927 handbook, “Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts.” • Marshmallow, in its original form, was a medicinal herb classified as Althaea officinalis, which is native to Europe and West Asia and thrives in wet, marshy, environs, ergo the name. Nineteenth-century French gastronomes have as solid a claim as any to the modern day confection when they

n Ingredients: 1/3 cup dark brown sugar 1/4 cup white sugar 1 tablespoon liquid honey 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour 1/3 cup whole wheat or graham flour 1/4 cup butter, unsalted 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt A few drops vanilla extract n Method: Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. In a food processor or bowl of an electric mixer blend sugar, butter, extract and honey until smooth. In a mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients. Add to butter mixture, and blend well. Divide dough in half and roll each piece between sheets of parchment paper to 1/8-inch thick. Slide onto baking sheets and freeze for about 15 minutes until firm. Remove top parchment sheet, and cut into 2 ½- by 4-inch rectangles with a pizza cutter. Prick with a fork. Bake 15-18 minutes or to golden brown. Cool and store in airtight containers for up to 1 week. whipped the gummy root juices into a frothy paste with sugar and eggs. Later the plant juices were replaced with gelatin to give the marshmallow is fluffy, pillowy texture. • The second component of the s’mores, the Graham cracker, was created by the man who bears its name. In the late 1920s, Sylvester Graham, a vegetarian and pioneer health-food guru, concocted a crisp, high-fiber bread made from non-sifted whole-wheat flour cut into bite-size squares. • Finally, entrepreneur Milton Hershey was inspired by the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago to enter the world of cocoa. He purchased German machinery to hone the art of chocolate making at his home in Pennsylvania. For years he tinkered with perfecting the recipe for milk chocolate, a coveted Swiss

secret. Concocting the winning formula enabled him to find his bliss — the Hershey Bar — that was massproduced and distributed for all wallets to enjoy. Assemble a classic s’more Arrange three piles of Graham crackers cut in half or in squares, jumbo marshmallows and a quarter of a Hershey Bar. Thread three or four marshmallows on a metal skewer or long wooden stick, and toast over a campfire, gas grill or in your oven. Like Baby Bear’s porridge, they should be done just right — toasted evenly without any charred spots. Place a chocolate chunk on the cracker, gingerly remove each marshmallow, and layer one on top of the chocolate. Create a sandwich with a second Graham square. Wait one minute for the mallow to melt the chocolate, then dig in.

My life as a deadbeat

Let Inga tell you ... As a Social Securitycollecting 63-year-old, I really thought it was not too much to hope for that I could finish my life without ever being classified as a deadbeat. But that dream was crushed on July 5 when the City of San Diego Water Department changed to a new billing service incongruously called Customer Care Solutions. Cleverly employing a nocost non-tech system of DoIt-Yourself Data Conversion, they require customers paying online to re-enter all of their billing information (including bank account data) and be assigned new account numbers. I feared there could be problems when after some three hours over as many days, I was only able to create my new account by ignoring their instructions. I’ve paid all my bills online for years and paid my first water bill on the new system on July 14, printing a confirmation. Much to my dismay, some two weeks later I received a non-payment notice in the mail adding that my water service was about to be histoire. This was especially disconcerting given that it was now August. We may not be much on hygiene, but we do care about landscaping. Checking my new water services account online, I couldn’t immediately ascertain the problem as it only shows the last four

digits of my checking account, all of which were correct. My bank account had 20 times the amount needed to pay the bill, plus overdraft protection. I could only assume I had somehow, for the first time ever, dropped a digit in the account number. But then, I am old. When I dialed the customer service number the next morning at the precise time it opened, wait time was already 30 minutes. But eventually I was connected to a customer service rep who, with barely disguised ennui, confirmed that not only had I been charged a $25 penalty but as with all water scofflaws, only payment in cash or money order would now be accepted at one of their regional payment center; no over-the-phone credit card payments allowed. I appealed to an equallyennuied supervisor, saying that surely 38 years of meticulously on-time payments from the same address should count for something? In a word: No. In fact, she warned, should I ever “bounce another check” to them, I’ll need to post a significant deposit to continue to get water services. I now have Official Deadbeat Status. In that case, I said, since I have no idea why this payment didn’t go through, I’d like to revert to paper bills. Sorry, she said, she’s not authorized to do that. She is only authorized to annoy the bejesus out of customers. OK, that second line is mine. A wad of cash in hand, I headed to my regional payment center, a Payday Loan place, only to find a sign on the door saying, “Back in 30 minutes.” But this allowed me to visit with

the person ahead of me in line, a fellow water reprobate clutching the same blue slip and having an identical story: account was a bear to set up, couldn’t figure out why payment didn’t go through. She had tried calling at noon only to get the recording saying “don’t even bother holding.” Now one might think that once one had handed over money at the authorized payment center, the water gods would be appeased. But one would be wrong. You have not paid until you call them back and tell them you have paid. No call, no payment. One marvels at the sheer brilliance of such exquisite inefficiency. However by the time I got home, the (Anti) Customer (Un)Caring (Non) Solutions line only rang busy — for the rest of the day. And the next.

Ultimately, I got through to a report-your-payment recording, but while I was waiting on my land line, I entertained myself on my cell phone repeat-dialing their Customer Service Survey number (619) 5153515 cheerfully giving the customer service reps the lowest grade of 1 (minus 10 wasn’t available). I’m hoping they won’t realize that 240 of their rock bottom ratings are mine. Meanwhile, the Payday Loan lady, while happy to see so many new faces and for the boon to her business (she charged me to pay the bill beside the $25 fine) commented that if it were her water bill, she’d revert to paper bills and pay by check. That so sounds like a plan. — Look for La Jolla resident Inga’s lighthearted looks at life every other week in The Light. Reach her at inga47@san.rr.com

Physical therapist says handbags don’t have to ‘hurt’ By Patricia B. Dwyer Backaches and shoulder pain can be a season’s latest accessory — both spurring from their fashionable cousin, the handbag. Women hobble, adjust, and generally struggle, for the sake of looking good and carrying everything they might ever need with them at all times. To address the issue, Marcia Tassinari, founder of the Posture Biomechanics Foundation, hosted a seminar July 28 at St. Brigid Parish in Pacific Beach. Titled “Handbag Hazard: Connecting Fashion with Function,” the program was part of a monthly series of health and fitness lessons for everyday life. Tassinari received her Masters in Physical Therapy from the College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific in 1994. She specializes in the management and treatment of osteoporosis and osteopenia. Tassinari discussed the different types of handbags and how to best wear them to limit strain on the body. Here are her tips for keeping back pain out of your handbag. Test your bag There are five major points of alignment on the body: feet, pelvis, stomach, rib cage, and head. When the body is perfectly aligned, the feet are parallel, the pelvis tucked inward, the stomach and ribs lifted even with the shoulders, and the head level. To test how your handbag affects your alignment, stand in front of a mirror while wearing the bag as you usually do and see how these five points of alignment appear.

Marcia tassinari (left) explains how a bag with a side strap should rest on the body. Photos by Patricia b. Dwyer

evelyn Love, tress Kroko, Martha white and Bonnie Mann try on some side bags. Walk toward the mirror and freeze midstride, and note the position of the five points again. Try to bend down and pick something up and pay attention to how you have to compensate for the shifting and swinging of your bag. The goal is to have a bag that affects your alignment as little as possible, thus straining the body as little as possible.

Find the sweet spot For side-slung bags with straps that cross the torso with the bag on the hip, the bag should sit somewhere between the pelvis and the hip. It’s in this area that the bag will receive the most natural support from the body without affecting its alignment.

Even if the bag rests a little toward the front or back of the body, the strap length should always leave the bag hanging on this sweet spot.

Not too much depth Any bag style with too much depth in the design will cause it to bulge further away from the body when it is full. This forces the bag to move or slip off the shoulder, and need constant readjustment. A good handbag should fit snug against the body. Different bags for different bodies A handbag’s size and style should be proportional to the body carrying it. Find a bag that doesn’t look like it could crush you. Bags can never be too small or lightweight, but they can certainly be too big and heavy. The straps should also hit the shoulders evenly and not slide around. Different styles will accomplish this for different bodies. The idea is for the bag to be as stable as possible and affect the body’s

alignment as little as possible.

Switch it up For bags with one strap, switch the shoulder the strap is placed on periodically so one side of the body doesn’t get used to carrying all the weight or become worn down. Traveling bags In luggage, a wheeling bag is best, with all the heaviest items placed on the bottom of the bag where the wheels are. When walking with the bag, keep the elbow straight and aligned with the side of the body. Styles for miles The best handbags that affect alignment the least are: waist-packs that sit between the pelvis and hip, small backpacks that fit snuggly to the body, and bags with straps that fit across the torso. * For more information on Tassinari’s classes, e-mail her at mrtassinari@gmail.com

Once a cottage home, tables at the converted restaurant spill out onto the porch, yard and driveway.

The menu includes a variety of entree-sized salads, including Bleu Pear Salad with baby greens, pears sautéed in lemon and sugar, crumbled bleu cheese, and caramelized pecans.

Classic ale logos decorate the dining room.

The Public House is always good for what’s ale-ing you By Daniel K. lew he Public House is literally a “house” to gather for burgers and brews, but what sets this La Jolla Village restaurant apart is its shear number of ales from around the world. Previously home to The Burgundy Grill and Wine Bar, the two-story, red house on the corner of Kline Street and Bishops Lane was first built in 1904 and has been designated as a historical landmark. Proprietors of The Public House are hoping to set their own mark in town since opening in February. “We have beers from all over the world — basically something for everyone,” said general manager Paul Dignam, who also helps run The Public House’s older sibling, Encinitas Ale House, which has been open for almost two years. “We try to sell things that are good and hard to find in the area.” Both are owned by Tommaso Maggiore, who has an eclectic taste in beers, reflected in his restaurants’ offerings in both food and drinks. The Public House’s daily, updated beverage list includes 43 Belgian ales on tap, 180 bottle choices from around the globe, selections from local breweries, limitedrelease microbrews, and a handful of wines. Not only does The Public House specialize in Belgian ales, it serves

On The Menu Recipe Each week you’ll find a recipe from the featured restaurant online at lajollalight.com. Just click ‘Get The Recipe’ at the bottom of the story. ■ This week: The Public House’s Kobe Wagyu Burger them in authentic glassware made specifically by each Belgian brewery. Dignam says it’s a big deal in Belgium to serve each beer in its own, branded and specialtyshaped glass. Not too many places in San Diego follow that practice, but The Public House follows the tradition to bring authenticity to the experience. For those undecided on the restaurant’s overwhelming amount of beer choices, it offers a taster’s flight with any four ales on tap. The food menu is also impressive with its rotating selection of meats available for its half-pound burgers. The restaurant gets its beef several times a week from “farm to fork,” sustainably-farmed Brandt Beef. Other burger meats, which vary each week, have included bison, lamb, duck, venison, rabbit, and ostrich. Vegetarian-patty substitutions are available.

Its signature dish is a 10-ounce, grass-fed Kobe Wagyu Burger with the meat from Australia’s Greg Norman Farms. The hefty burger is served with Gruyere cheese, crumbly gorgonzola, crispy onion straws, tomato and baby greens. The Kobe Wagyu Burger is also available as three, 3-ounce sliders. Other burger choices include cleverly named burgers: 33.0384°N, 117.293°W Cheeseburger (latitude and longitude for The Public House location), and “La Jolla Cave” Bootlegger Burger served with hot-whiskey BBQ sauce, crispy onion straws, bacon, and pepper-jack cheese. The menu is rounded out by gourmet salads, appetizers, sandwiches, tacos, and beerbattered fish-and-chips made from a Belgian ale on tap. The Public House has transformed the property’s living room and porch into indoor dining areas, which are adorned with reflective metal signs showcasing the brands of Belgian ales. What was once the garage is now storage for the beers on tap and hundreds of Belgian glassware. The former driveway and yard is a bar and popular spot for many who prefer the patio and extended bar along the fence, bordering on the sidewalk. “We keep updating our wide variety of choices to make things interesting for our customers; they seem to like it,” Dignam said.

In ‘Milk Like Sugar’ the well of wisdom is often empty By Diana Saenger Playwright Kirsten Greenidge often pens stories with characters who must explore truth in themselves or their situation. Her latest, “Milk Like Sugar,” in rehearsal at the La Jolla Playhouse, lends itself to that theme as a group of teen-age girls enter into a life-changing pact that transforms their lives forever. Rebecca Taichman (“Sleeping Beauty Wakes)” directs “Milk Like Sugar,” a recipient of a 2011 Edgerton Foundation New American Play Award. It is a co-commission with Theatre Masters, produced in association with Playwrights Horizons and The Women’s Project. Appearing as Myrna is Tony Award-winner Tonya Pinkins who has a wide array of stage, TV and film credits — Playhouse’s Tonya “Thoroughly Modern Pinkins Millie,” “Caroline or Change,” “Jelly’s Last Jam,” Disney’s “Enchanted,” “24,” “Law and Order,” and “The Closer.” Pinkins said she admires The Women’s Project. “They have a commitment to women writers, directors and artists, and stories unique to women,” Pinkins said. “I heard that last year the same number of women playwrights’ works were produced as in 1931. The Women’s Project is one of the few places where women artists have an opportunity to express their voices and produce their visions.”

Teens face difficult challenges in “Milk Like Sugar” running aug. 30-Sept. 25 at the La Jolla Playhouse. Courtesy photos The cast also features Cherise Boothe (Talisha), Angela Lewis (Annie), Nikiya Mathis (Margie), LeRoy McClain (Antwoine), J. Mallory-McCree (Malik) and Adrienne C. Moore (Keera). Pinkins’ character, Myrna, is mother to 16-year-old Annie who has questions not

even her mom can answer. “Life has not been what Myrna had hoped for,” Pinkins said. “Because of some personal things she’s going through — like getting fired — Myrna lashes out at Annie who only wants some advice from her. But Annie’s hitting her mom at a time when she has an empty well and that forces Annie to make a bad mistake.” The play’s theme of choosing between the safety of the life you know and the danger of the life you desire resonates with Pinkins who has her eye on all aspects of her career, which she seems to handle well, even while married and raising six children. In her 2006 book, “Get Over Yourself: How to Drop the Drama and Claim the Life You Deserve,” Pinkins offers techniques to help readers develop and obtain goals. The book also answers questions that help fill the well of actors reaching for the fame she has achieved. “Actors often go through difficult times. So with the book, I wanted to teach them to think of themselves as business people,” Pinkins said. “Using the principles in my book has gotten me through some very tough times.” In “Milk Like Sugar,” Annie also faces challenging times. Pinkins believes the play mirrors today’s culture where TV-screen images encourage kids in negative ways. “Many girls have embraced the idea of being teen-age moms as if it’s something to celebrate,” she said. “We’ve got magazines dedicated to teen-age moms on the cover and TV series about teen moms as if that’s

To be in the room watching geniuses do what they do, and feel you have a part in the things in their heads coming to life, is thrilling. I worked with Rebecca before on “Thoroughly Modern Millie,” and she’s great.” Told through savage humor and gritty poetry, Playhouse artistic director Christopher Ashley called “Milk Like Sugar” a poignant story that will resonate with audiences of all backgrounds.

home of friends Sidney (Michael Warner) and Beatrice Webb (Natalie Gold), founders of the Fabian Society in England, an organization that promotes socialism. What their houseguest lacks in success, he more than makes up for in his daily complaints about his tedious career and boasts of accomplishments with the ladies. He spends his time penning letters to married women or courting others. An “adversary” arrives in the form of another Webb guest, wealthy heiress Charlotte Payne-Townshend (Angela Pierce). She’s immediately drawn to “Bernie,” but observes his philandering ways and obvious affection for Mrs. Webb. Charlotte and Bernard eventually acknowledge their interest in each other and agree to an intimate relationship with no strings attached. Brogan and Pierce are excellent in their portrayals. Brogan nails Bernard’s anxious side while waiting for success, and also his staunch stubbornness about refusing to get married, “I will not

have my wings clipped!” Pierce has somewhat of a Katharine Hepburn-persona; while she adores Bernie and longs to be his bride, she’s perfectly able and ready to walk if she doesn’t get her way, and which she does for some time. Sidney and Beatrice are the opposites of their guests. The actors are married in real life and probably why they create such believable characters. Sidney is not only absorbed with his foundation, he’s totally enthralled by his wife and marriage, and takes every minute with his guests to let them know his feelings.

Gold plays Beatrice closer to the sand, sinking into the unburdened life with Sidney, but also toying with Bernard’s impression of women. Director Henry Wishcamper has an even hand blending this production of fiction based on historical fact. He offers an intriguing peek into what George Bernard Shaw might have been like, while engaging with characters whose lives and decisions fascinate like a Wimbledon tennis match.

Psychologist discusses happiness at mental health luncheon

T

he Vista Hill Council on Mental Health hosted a luncheon at the Hyatt Regency Aventine, La Jolla on Aug. 4 with guest speaker Arlene Matthews uhl of New Jersey discussing “The Pursuit of Happiness: A New Psychology.” uhl is a psychotherapist, professor of developmental psychology, and the author of numerous self-help books, including “seven Keys to Calm,” and Idiot’s Guides to “Coping with Difficult People,” “Beating stress,” and “The Psychology of Happiness.” uhl encouraged guests to think about the good things in

their lives when they have a down moment. What are you thankful for? What do you enjoy? “Take time,” she advised, “to enjoy time for yourself, but think of others as well. What can you do to make the world a better place?” The Vista Hill Foundation works with troubled young people, offers treatment for school-age kids, and provides long-term special education and training for individuals with developmental disabilities.

From 10 Questions, B1 these are the programs being eliminated in budget cuts. Who or what inspires you? the life of Jesus, george MacDonald, C.s. Lewis, Emily Dickinson, Hans Christen Andersen, g.K. Chesterton. Madeleine L’Engle, shakespeare, st. Francis, Irving Berlin, my prayer group, my two grown children, and all my Young Actors! If you hosted a dinner party for eight, whom (living or deceased) would you invite?

Here I have to change the rules. I am having an Open House! I would want all my dear family, precious friends, and my Young Actors past and present. Also included would be all those who have inspired me! We would have some of my dad’s famous Irish Coffee and Dr. Jay would play my mom’s swing tunes. Maybe Bill Cosby would drop by so the laughing would never end! What are your favorite movies of all time? “It’s a Wonderful Life,” “Wizard of Oz,” “Mary Poppins,” “A Beautiful Life,” and all

the enchanting musicals that I grew up watching. What is your most-prized possession? First my faith, and then, the words of Dorothy in Oz sum it up, “there’s no place like home!” which of course is a place with those you cherish and who cherish you in return. What do you do for fun? I like beach picnics and walks, boogie boarding, attending theater, reading, enjoying music, and my morning coffee at the goldfish Café.

What’s your greatest accomplishment? Being the mom of my two children, Michalyn and Ryan, and having 40 years of theater here in La Jolla with all my Young Actors. How blest I have been by each of them! What is your philosophy of life? there is a biblical passage that states god is singing over us … this touches my heart. Every day is a miracle to be grateful for and I always sign-off my letters to the Young Actors … “Keep Dancing, singing, Laughing, Dreaming!”

Tikkun Olam Award

La Jolla student earns community service honor By Patricia B. Dwyer At the youthful age of 17, Liza Gurtin has already dedicated quite a few years to serving her community — and anyone else in need around the world. she was recently recognized for her works with the sizable sum of $36,000, as one of five recipients of the Hellen Diller Family Foundation Tikkun Olam Award. The award is presented annually to California teens who have taken initiative for the betterment of communities in need. Gurtin won for her fundraising efforts to bring clean water to those who need it across the globe. A Chicago transplant to La Jolla, Gurtin is no newcomer to helping others. “I have been involved with community service for as long as I can remember,” she said. “I was always helping the homeless, and once I got to California, I did a lot of work with sudanese refugees.” It was her fundraising skills for the san Diego Walk for Water that led to the Tikkun Olam Award, which

Three san Diego schools run the event — La Jolla Country Day, Bishop’s and Francis Parker. Gurtin is a student at the later. The event is a 5-K walk, during which participants carry a bucket of water. “In countries like Tanza-

nia, where people don’t have access to clean water, the women and children spend their days walking five to six miles to find water,” Gurtin said. “They carry the water back in buckets, sometimes carrying one each arm, with one on their head, and kicking one, too.” The Walk for Water helps raise awareness for this cause that affects over a quarter of a million people. The proceeds are used to build wells in Tanzania that will provide sanitary water to the population. Gurtin is so attached to getting clean water to those who need it that she decided to donate all of her award money to a “water” cause in Ethiopia. Her contribution to the Emergency Flood Project completed the project’s funding toward the goal of bringing clean water to Ethiopia, where water sources were recently contaminated by a large flood. A luncheon will be held on Aug. 29 in san Francisco to honor Gurtin and the other award recipients.
