By Dave SchwaB firstname.lastname@example.org Ever get that feeling of déjà vu? A lot of drivers in La Jolla probably have: You know, that feeling of the red lights blinking behind you. And, for sure, the police who patrol our streets have, seeing the same offenses over and over at key spots. Looking over the Crime Maps Incident Reports on the Automated Regional Justice Information website, a handful of locations repeat themselves time and again. From July 1 to Aug. 20, the report shows a whole lot of citations issued at the following locations: ■ La Jolla Scenic North Drive and Moonridge Drive — 135 citations; ■ 6400 La Jolla Scenic South Drive — 56; ■ 6400 La Jolla Boulevard — 48 citations, and ■ Cardeno Drive and La Jolla Scenic Drive South — 21 citations. In all, police and parking officers logged 495 traffic citations during that month and a half. As it turns out, the most often ticketed
spot — listed as Scenic Drive North near Moonridge Drive — is a traffic island above La Jolla Parkway. (There’s also a sign prohibiting left-hand turns at the exact intersection of the two streets between 7:30 and 10 a.m. ) The ARJIS report shows most of the tickets there are in the morning drive time between about 7 and 10 a.m. Police Lt. Rick O’Hanlon of the Traffic Division said it appears motorists backed up on the parkway heading into the Village are making U-turns to try and shave a few minutes off their commutes. Problem is, it’s illegal to make a U-turn “over a divided highway at a simulated island,” he said. So instead saving time turns into a short-cut to an expensive traffic ticket. The next most ticketed spot is 6400 La
Do you hear that? Is that my car alarm?” Gus Neves asked as we walked up Naga Way to La Jolla Shores Drive after an early-morning surf session at Scripps Pier. We rounded the corner and saw a young man in a dark hoodie and baggy jeans standing in a pool of shattered window glass and rifling through the backseat of Neves’s 2011 Volkswagen Jetta. Barefoot and in full suits, we ran toward the car, yelling. The thief looked at us, then bear-hugged as many items as he could fit into his arms and ran to a blue Saturn. He jumped in the passenger seat. Before the door closed, the car peeled out, nearly clipping a sports utility vehicle. We ran the remaining 30 feet and stopped in the road to watch the crooks drive south on La Jolla Shores Drive. The car alarm continued to blare, but passing drivers just looked at us. A small red and black screwdriver lay on the ground next to the shards of glass.

Lifeguards kick into gear for shark reports By DAve SchwAB email@example.com When a surfer and a lifeguard spotted dorsal fins in the water off Mission Beach last week, lifeguards shifted into their “standard (shark) operating procedure.” The first siting was reported by a lifeguard paddling a rescue board on Aug. 25, who said he saw an 18-inch dorsal fin. The second report came from a surfer, who reported an 18inch fin in the same general area, on Aug. 26. In both cases, the beach was closed for the rest of the day. “It’s lifeguards’ standard operating procedure to close the beach for a mile in each direction when there’s a shark sighting,” said Maurice Luque, San Diego Fire-Rescue Department spokesman. World-renowned shark expert Peter Klimley was contacted following the suspected great white shark sightings and he agreed
Top: A dolphin dorsal fin. Bottom: whale fin that closing the beach for a short period was “the best precaution to take,” Luque said. But there’s more to the procedure than that.

Author to students: ‘Take charge of your legacy’ By ElizaBEth SchnEidEr Best-selling author Stedman Graham has made a living out of teaching people how to accomplish their dreams and defy the obstacles placed in their path. For the 140 students he addressed at the UCSD OASIS Summer Bridge graduation on Aug. 25, the message couldn’t be more appropriate. The free four-week program, in which incoming freshmen from low-performing California high schools live and take classes at UCSD, aims to give those students the tools they need to make the transition to a top university. “We’re trying to get them set up for success,” said Summer Bridge program representative Antoinette Nagai. “We get them hooked up with the right resources so that if they have any challenges or struggles once they’re here at UCSD, they know where the resources are.” Program participants are enrolled in two academic classes, as well as a variety of workshops and seminars to acclimate them to the myriad challenges of college life. Some of their most important lessons, however, occur outside the classroom. “Summer Bridge comes at you from every angle,” said Elize Diop, who participated in the program in 2008 and is now a discussion facilitator. “I feel like I found myself. I had conversations with my ATC (academic transition counselor) that I didn’t think I was capable of having – I delved into things I had never explored before.”
Best-selling author Stedman Graham talks about his personal experience overcoming obstacles during the graduation ceremony for UcSd’s OaSiS Summer Bridge program. It is exactly that development of identity and self-respect that Graham insists is the key to success. “If you don’t have an identity and you don’t know who you are, you don’t have a direction or a way to grow,” he said. “You’re not able to get beyond the box that you’re in, whether it’s a race box or a gender box or an environment box.”
In his speech, Graham implored the students — many of whom will be the first in their family to attend college — to transcend the limitations of their background and “take charge of their legacy.” Graham introduced the students to his nine-step success program, the subject of his New York Times bestselling book “You Can Make It Happen: A Nine-Step Plan for
Success.” “The reason I do this is I want those students to understand that it’s not about their environment, it’s not about where they came from,” he said. “It’s about taking charge of their own involvement.” Diop says that between this emphasis on personal development and the strong academic support system, she entered the first day of school feeling confident and at home on UCSD’s sprawling campus. For Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs Penny Rue, this sense of belonging is one of the program’s most crucial outcomes. “What really helps students thrive is having a niche, having a sense of belonging,” she said. It’s a big, complex place, but if you have somewhere where you feel known … that really makes a difference.” After completing the OASIS Summer Bridge program — which is unrelated to the Summerbridge program that’s held at La Jolla High each summer — the students stay enrolled in a year-long transition program which offers workshops on study skills and other elements of academic success. Rue says that the freshman year is the most critical of college, and that the foundation students gain offers them the skills and the confidence to excel in UCSD’s rigorous academic environment. “It makes them think ‘I can do this — of course I can succeed’,” she said. “And the truth is that if you believe you can succeed, you will succeed.”

all Hallows principal ready to steer students By Dave SchwaB email@example.com The new principal of All Hallows Academy in La Jolla is a mother, a wife, a born Catholic and a “firm believer in the foundation that we give our children through this experience.” “I have a wealth of knowledge and a lot of energy and I want to really look at the future of All Hallows and see where we can take, even further, this institution,” said
Jill Platt, who was selected as the K-8 school’s principal after an extensive search. “Her strengths include faith-based leadership, creative thinking, problem solving, long-range planning and the ability to communicate with a diverse population,” said Father Raymond G. “Jerry” O’Donnell, All Hallows superintendent. “I know she will build on the school’s solid foundation.”

REHABBING ASAP! According to new research published in the journal Clinical Rehabilitation, patients undergoing knee replacement surgery should begin rehab “as soon as possible.” The study found that among patients between the ages of 50 and 75, those who began rehab within 24 hours after surgery spent two fewer days in the hospital and needed five fewer rehabilitation sessions prior to discharge than patients who started rehab 48-72 hours after their procedures. Moreover, the early rehabbers reported less pain, greater range of joint motion, improved muscle strength, and scored higher on gait & balance tests than the late starters. Planning to undergo rehabilitation as soon as possible is very important to your recovery. The main goal of rehab after knee replacement surgery is to regain knee flexion (bending the knee) to a minimum of 90 degrees, to allow for walking, climbing stairs, getting up from chairs, and getting in and out of a car. Knee flexion after surgery is affected, in part, by how much flexion was present before surgery. Therefore, rehabbing before surgery to increase range of motion can enhance outcomes after surgery. To schedule pre-op and/or post-op therapy, please call Ability Rehab today. Our therapists specialize in orthopedic rehab, including knee replacements.
tant principal for eight years working under three really good principals, I feel ready to take the helm,” she said, adding her expertise is in curriculum development and technology. She intends to bring the benefit of both to All Hallows. “I spent six years working in an all-boys, college-prep Jesuit High School in Phoenix, and I was able to take that school from having a single computer in some of the rooms to having over 450 computers on campus and moving into an individual laptop program for each of the students,” she said. Integrating technology with education is critical today, said Platt. “For students to be ready and to really function in the world, the idea is not to ignore technology but to embrace it,” she said. “By integrating technology into the curriculum, we’re giving them that outside vantage point and teaching them to maneuver through it.” Though she hasn’t been

there long, Platt’s already been impressed by the uniqueness of the school that has an enrollment of 230. “It’s this idea that we’re one family; we’re in it together,” she said. “People have bent over backwards for me.” As the principal of a private, religious school, Platt noted she has an additional challenge. “You’re not just the instructional leader of the school, but also the spiritual
leader,” she said. “You need to model what it means to have moral and ethical values, developing the mind, the body and the spirit.” Most of all, Platt wants to add to the rich history and high-performance level of the school. “Clearly our students have done well,” she said. “So we want to ensure that we’re keeping that high expectation, not only for the students, but the teachers.”

Silvergate Capital in LJ gets funds for small-business loans La Jolla-based Silvergate Capital Corp. has received $12.4 million in funding through the Small Business Lending Fund (SBLF), U.S. Treasury officials announced Wednesday. The SBLF, which was established as part of the Small Business Jobs Act that President Obama signed into law, encourages community banks to increase their lending to small businesses, helping those companies expand their operations and create new jobs. “These funds will provide critical support to Main Street community banks so they can expand their lending to small businesses,” Deputy Secretary of the Treasury Neal S. Wolin said in a press release. “This program helps entrepreneurs in communities across the country access the capital they need to grow their operations, invest in new equipment, and hire additional workers.” In all a total of $39.7 milliion in funding was announced
in this latest round of funds given to California banks. Since the program began, eight banks in the state have received $97.1 milion. The funds are provided to community banks that hold under $10 billion in assets, with the dividend rate a community bank pays on SBLF funding reduced as that bank increases its lending to small businesses.

A cross of seagrass
Beach access proponents at La Jolla’s Children’s Pool found a new way to make a statement on the situation there over the weekend — with sea grass, which had been piling up against the fence at the rear of the beach and was drying out. Previously, said one member of the group, sea grass has been disposed of over the fence under the old lifeguard tower. But this year they said lifeguards, expressing concern about the pile, asked that the practice be discontinued. So to draw attention to the problem of refuse collecting at the pool, they opted to create an attention-getting cross, which they say they may incorporate into a 9/11 memorial should it survive until that time.

FroM SharkS, a4 San Diego Lifeguard Lt. Nick Lerma explained the procedure, saying, “First we try to determine if it is a credible report, judging whether it’s from a credible source and what type of shark it is going by things like fin size.” Sometimes, he added, dolphins or seals can be mistaken for sharks. Last week they used lifeguards on boats and personal watercraft as well as a San Diego Fire-Rescue helicopter crew to scan the area. “Then determining how close the shark is, the demarcation line being 500 yards out from shore, we determine whether it’s of sufficient size to present a potential threat.“ Lerma said lifeguards opt for a beach closure if it’s determined to be a dangerous shark near enough to shore or an advisory if the shark is further out. “We wouldn’t close the beach for a blue shark or a sevengill shark, but if there’s reason to believe it’s a great white we close the beach,” he said. “We have to always direct our attention to public safety.” Luque said shark expert Klimley noted that great whites are typically migrating north from the end of July into early September after spawning and it’s not uncommon for them to be seen during these times off San
Diego’s coast. Meanwhile, up the coast, State Fish and Game agents last week were investigating if a fisherman who caught a baby great white shark off the Huntington Beach Pier should be prosecuted. The roughly 5-foot shark was caught on Monday — the video can be seen at http://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=1wNP_ oztkpk&feature=youtu.be — and fish and game agents took custody of the carcass, according to fish and game Capt. Dan Sforza. Great white sharks, topfeeders in the marine world, have been protected under California law since 1994. Catching them is a misdemeanor. Fish and game investigators will have to decide if the fish was “unlawfully’’ caught. It was unclear if the fisherman who caught the fish knew it was a great white. One of the group around the pole can be heard calling it a mako. White sharks are found worldwide and feed primarily on seals. The latest fatal shark attack in California was near Vandenberg Air Force Base in Santa Barbara County on Oct. 22, when UC Santa Barbara student Lucas Ransom, 19, was killed. That shark was 14-16 feet long and believed to be a great white. — City News Service contributed to this report.

La Jolla united under approved redistricting map By James R. Riffel City News Service After months of public hearings and controversies, the city of San Diego’s Redistricting Commission last week approved a new map for City Council districts that puts all of La Jolla in Council District 1. The final product from the commission represents a radical change from the current boundaries because a ninth district was squeezed in — the result of San Diego’s change in its form of governance several years ago. The new District 9 will run from the College Area toward the Southwest down to Southcrest. Joe LaCava, who lobbied for what was dubbed “Coast and Canyons plan” and is the former president of the La Jolla Community Planning Association, said last week he was pleased with the outcome. “The communities in the north coastal area from La Jolla to Carmel Valley came together in an impressive show of solidarity and unanimous support of the Coast & Canyons Plan,” he said. “That singular voice resonated with the Redistricting Commission as they understood that we needed to remain together in one council district.” He added that the communities “appreciate that the commission created an open process for public input and took the time to listen to our testimony and read our e-mails. In adopting the entirety of the Coast & Canyons Plan as the new District 1 the Commission did the right
thing for our communities as well as for the city as a whole.” In addition to bringing a piece of La Jolla back from District 2, the map also keeps the UC San Diego and University City communities intact and keeps communities of interest together such as Carmel Valley, Del Mar Mesa, Torrey Hills and Torrey Pines. At one of the many hearings held by the commission, Rick Newman of the Carmel Valley Community Planning Board, noted, “This plan has kept community planning areas whole, school districts whole and kept the most important coastal communities that affect all of us together.” Another major change will be that District 3, represented by Todd Gloria, will include downtown, currently represented by Kevin Faulconer, who also loses the southern portion of La Jolla. The commission made only one change to its preliminary map, approved July 21, adjusting the boundaries of districts so that Linda Vista would only be split two ways instead of three. The next step will be implementing the new map. City Council President Tony Young has proposed having council members begin to represent their new areas late next month. However, City Attorney Jan Goldsmith opined that the new boundaries will not take effect until the December 2012, when the District 9 seat is filled. — Staff writer Kathy Day contributed to this report.
Merchants group seeking board candidates La Jolla Village Merchants Association is looking for a few interested business people interested in filling five seats on the board. Those holding the seats — Claudette Berwin, Leon Chow, Tal O’Farrell, Kate Brainard, and Glidia Holland — are eligible to run again for the three-terms. They were seated when the group held its inaugural election in the spring after the group organized to seek the city contract to run the La Jolla Business Improvement District. There are five other directors whose terms expire in October 2012 and five more expiring in October 2013. To be eligible to nominate someone or to nominate oneself, BID assessments had to be paid by Aug. 31. Nominations are due by Sept. 14. (The group holds its next meeting at 8:30 a.m. Sept. 14 at the La Jolla Woman’s Club, 7791 Draper St.) The form and additional information can be found on page A14 of today’s Light and at www.lajollalight.com.

From ShoreS, A1 As we waited for a police officer, a woman holding a brown Chihuahua walked up. She told us her car had been stolen: a blue Saturn sedan. An hour later, officers located the stolen car, abandoned on a side street off Calle del Oro, in front of Irwin Jacobs’s mansion. The crooks made off with a new Apple MacBook, a Tutima watch, and a Sony camera. The items were worth approximately $4000. “I have friends who had their car broken into while surfing at Scripps, but nothing had ever happened to me,” said Neves a month after the break-in. “I guess it was only a matter of time.” La Jolla Shores, a busy upscale neighborhood, offers one of the city’s most popular beaches, is home to the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, borders the campus of the University of California San Diego, and is a hot spot for car burglars. They lurk on the hillside above Scripps Pier, watching as a surfer hides a key inside a bumper or wheel well. They patrol the residential streets farther south, as if they were looking for a parking spot. Once a target is spotted, it takes thieves just minutes to slide a screwdriver into the window jamb, pop the window, open the door, and take wallets, iPods, phones, and anything else of value. The
crooks have three escape routes: head north on La Jolla Shores Drive to La Jolla Village Drive; head south on La Jolla Shores Drive to La Jolla Parkway; or head east on Calle del Oro — a winding, residential street — to Torrey Pines Road. The freeway is minutes away. Shards of auto glass — evidence of the break-ins — speckle the sidewalks at the northern end of La Jolla Shores Drive, near Scripps, where the street is fast-moving and flanked by shrubs and hillside, as well as at the southern end of the street, in the residential neighborhoods full of multimillion-dollar homes. Ben Jerman grew up surfing in La Jolla. On July 1, the busiest beach weekend of the year, Jerman drove his Ford Ranger to La Jolla Shores to surf. The beach was crowded. The residential streets around the Shores were the same. Drivers circled the neighborhood blocks, watching for someone walking back to a car, hoping to get the parking space. Jerman got lucky. He found parking on Paseo del Ocaso, a short walk to the beach. The waves were inconsistent that day, and Jerman brought two boards, his 8´ longboard and his 5´4˝ Steve Seebold quad shortboard. Opting for his longboard, Jerman locked his quad in the cab of his truck. After 35 minutes of surfing, he got

out of the water to get the quad. But it was gone. Thieves had popped his door lock with a screwdriver and taken the board, which was worth about $400. Since then, Jerman has filed a police report and searched for his board on Craigslist and in used sporting goods stores. No luck. “It was crazy because it happened on such a busy weekend,” he says. “There were people everywhere looking for parking. I’m not sure how they could break in to a car or a truck with so many people around. You’d think someone would see them doing it or they would be worried about getting caught.” It’s possible the thieves aren’t worried because they know from experience they won’t get caught. “Scripps [surf spot] has always been one of the most problematic areas
for car thefts in La Jolla Shores,” says Lorraine Schmalenberger, president of the La Jolla Shores Surfing Association. Schmalenberger says more and more stories about vehicle break-ins are floating around the Shores. During the past three years, a car is broken into, on average, nearly every week in La Jolla Shores. From July 2008 to June 2009, there were 54 vehicle break-in calls to police. The following year, there were 46, and between July 2010 and June 2011, 50 car break-ins were reported. “We see a high number of car burglaries and car thefts in that area, not just at the La Jolla Shores parking lot but the entire area,” says Boyd Long, an assistant chief at the San Diego Police Department. “We know that people have become targets down there. Crooks know peo-
ple may be gone for several hours at a time. All they have to do is wait until they are gone.” Despite police efforts to warn the public at community meetings, says Capt. Al Guaderrama of the Northern Division, beachgoers continue to leave their belongings in plain sight. “We try to get the word out and increase patrols, but surfers are leaving valuable items right in the seat of their cars. Crooks are watching them go into the water, knowing that they are leaving their belongings in the vehicle. “It takes just a minute or two for some of these individuals to break in and grab belongings. It is very quick how they can do this, especially for some of the experienced ones.” The police department sends members of the Retired Senior Volunteer Patrol to drive through La Jolla Shores and, on occasion, to distribute “report cards” to educate people on the security of their vehicles. But police say that the layout of the area and the speed with which crooks can finish the job make the break-ins nearly impossible to stop. “I just keep telling people to stop leaving valuables in the car,” says Alan Alvarez, public information officer for the northern division. “It’s common sense. After all, it is just a piece of glass protecting your stuff.”

La Jolla residents and businesses rally in support of Fire Station #9 renovations The first responders of Fire Station 9 will be honored at a community celebration dedicated to raising funds to remodel the firehouse at the corner of Torrey Pines and La Jolla Parkway. It is the busiest station in the community. La Jolla residents Sally and Greg Ricchiuti will host the benefit on Sept. 10. In addition to mingling with the Station 9 crew — attired in uniform for the special occasion —guests will be treated to dinner and the chance to dance to the sounds of the Wayne Foster Orchestra. Since the days following the 2007 Witch Creek Fire — when Sally and her children paid a thank-you visit to their neighborhood firehouse and found Station 9 in dire need of refurbishment — the Ricchiuti family has led the charge to raise private funds to pay for its renovation. The City of San Diego lacks the funding to accomplish the task. Ricchiuti has raised approximately
$130,000 of the $400,000 fundraising goal she set to refurbish Station 9. “We did set a goal initially of $500,000, but had to lower it because it’s just so difficult to raise money at this time,” she said adding her objective is just really to create a better place for firefighters by providing them with private quarters and new accommodations — beds, paint, a gym and kitchen appliances. “We’re really making progress and hoping to kick this into high gear,” Ricchiuti said, noting she believes, with all the local and San Diego County contractors that have come forward to contribute, that it’s going to happen. “I’m not concerned about the labor,” she said. “It’s securing the money we need to really see this to fruition.” Ricchiuti added there will be no permits necessary for the remodel as it is all “inside work,” though it will need to be signed off on by San Diego Fire Chief Javier Mainar.

They deserve a home-away-from-home that is as secure and respectable as they themselves are expected and required to be.”

New York’s a long way from La Jolla, but the tasty, thincrust pizza favored there is readily available at Pizza on Pearl at 617 Pearl St. “This is really a New Yorkstyle pizzeria,” said owner David Mittleman, who also owns Bongiorno’s New York Pizzeria in Solana Beach. “We have about 18 different pizzas to choose from. We do salads, heroes, strombolis and calzones.” The pizzeria offers pizza by the slice and has a daily lunch special of two slices and a soda for $7.50. There’s also plenty for vegetarians, from vegetable toppings to eggplant parmesan heroes and house salads with a choice of dressings, including homemade vinaigrette dressing. Mittleman said pies at Pizza on Pearl have all the traditional ingredients, but he’s not afraid to experiment or customize.
San Diego European Motorcars celebrated its grand opening with a private revealing of the Aston Marton V12 Zagto on Aug. 25 at the Razor, a La Jolla estate designed by Wallace E. Cunningham, one of Architectural Digest’s Top 100 Designers. Gary Sorter, general manager of the new dealership at 7820 Balboa Ave., said the new Aston Marton “matches
“We listen to customers, see what they like,” he said, noting he offers white pizzas without red sauce and popular ingredients like buffalo and barbecued chicken that kids like. “There’s a real variety,” he said. Mittleman’s Pizzeria’s decor is as distinctive as the cuisine, East meets West, with photos of storied Yankees Lou Gehrig, Babe Ruth and Dodger greats from the old Brooklyn days alongside a prize shot of former Chargers star running back LaDanian Tomlinson, who is now a New York Jet. Pizza on Pearl, located near both The Bishop’s School and La Jolla High, gets plenty of student business. Mittleman said he is thankful to the local community, which has “supported us tremendously. They love the food, tell all their neighbors and friends.”
Pizza on Pearl is located at 617 Pearl St. COURTESY “We’re still seeing new customers even after two years, people from Escondido or further north, who tell me every time they’re down they come to eat here,” he added Pizza on Pearl is open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily and offers delivery in north Pacific Beach and the La Jolla area until 9:30 p.m. For more information call (858) 729-0717 or visit www. pizzaonpearl.com.

Website helps students save on books By Karen Billing Staff Writer On average, an American college student spends about $900 a year on college textbooks. SwoopThat.com, a website started by four 20-somethings, including one from La Jolla, hopes to save people about 50 percent on textbooks and make the process a lot easier and less time-consuming. The site offers price comparisons on textbooks for more than 2,300 schools across the nation, saving customers the hassle of a lengthy online quest. SwoopThat has all the 145 schools’ courses and course book requirements loaded up. Once users log in their courses, the site then “swoops” the best prices from every major online book retailer. “We’re exceeding my expectations,” said CEO Johnny Simkin. “I wasn’t expecting to support the number of schools we have.” “I wish we had (this option) when we were in college,” added Benjamin Carson, COO, now a La Jolla resident and La Jolla Country Day School grad. Simkin, 23, and Carson, 26, have been friends since “before they can remember,” growing up together on the border of Del Mar and Rancho Santa Fe. Simkin met partners Kevin King, their chief technology officer who lives in Poway, and Dan Holleran, computer engineer who lives in Santa Barbara, while attending Harvey Mudd College. Carson went to Claremont Colleges’ Pomona College and in 2010
SwoopThat.com’s Ben Carson, Kevin King and Johnny Simkin with company mascot Zorro. Karen Billing Photo graduated from University of San Diego School of Law. The site has become a fulltime job for all four. The SwoopThat site doesn’t sell books — it simply offers price transparency, Simpkin said. They are the only website to offer an “internal cart,” meaning you load books onto your cart on SwoopThat and they are waiting to be purchased in a cart on the bookseller’s site. SwoopThat can also find rentable books, e-books and free digital textbooks when they are available. “(Customers) love it,” said Simkin. “It basically reduces a 30-minute task to five to 10 minutes and you’re guaranteed to get the
best deal.” The group hopes to soon expand its offerings to private high schools such as Simkin’s alma mater San Diego Jewish Academy. The friends created a site just for Harvey Mudd courses offering textbook price comparisons. Within four days, 30 percent of the student body was using their site. Seeing how successful it was, they decided to try and bring the service to a much larger audience. In mid-May they redesigned the site so it now includes a book exchange, more detailed seller ratings, reviews, comments on book condition, shipping times as well as one-click checkout for instant purchase of
all books. SwoopThat gets a percentage of each book sale and can also work with schools to get money from textbooks sales to go back to the college in some way. For example, at Harvey Mudd, students saved $66,000 on books while more than $1,000 was raised for their student body association. The site has become the largest aggregator of textbooks by course data in the country, according to a company spokesman. Their company goal is for Swoop to become a verb in popular vernacular — just as people “Google it,” Simkin hopes students will “Just SwoopThat.” Finding the course textbook lists for various colleges is fairly easy, Carson said, since the Higher Education Opportunity Act was enacted in 2008, requiring schools to make their textbook lists public. “The challenging part is taking different data formats and getting it together in a readable format,” Carson said. That part is King’s job, working hard into the early-morning hours. “I’m usually going to sleep when my friends are waking up,” he admits. The other partners are logging 12-hour days, as well, in an office in Simkin’s home, also giving up their weekends to grow their business. “That’s what start-ups are all about,” Carson said.

Let’s get a grip on graffiti in La Jolla our view This week in our Kudos feature on Page A3, we changed the focus to something we don’t like about the Jewel: graffiti. We’ve been fairly lucky, for the most part, to have eluded the vandals who get a charge out of defacing public and private property. But in this case, the fact that they are disturbing the scenic beauty of one of La Jolla’s most well-known spots — and further, the rocks themselves that line WindanSea beach — merits
attention. Across the city, the malicious work of these folks costs about $1 million a year. It’s an offense that parents ought to take heed of: If your child is under 18 and is convicted of participating in the offense, you can be billed up to $10,000 for removal costs. If convicted, the “bad guys” can be jailed or sent to juvenile hall and can be required to work on crews painting out graffiti or can lose their drivers’ licenses. On top of that, the city ordinance “requires that property owners keep all walls,
buildings, fences, signs and other structures and surfaces visible from the public right-of-way free of graffiti.” Sometimes the work of gang members, graffiti is often done by “taggers” who want to be noticed. For those types, there generally are no limits to where they strike. City officials, as noted on the city’s website, say, “Quick removal of graffiti is important because it discourages more tagging.” So, to repeat: If you see graffiti vandals in the act, call 9-1-1 and report immediately. If you see existing graffiti
that needs removing, you can use the online complaint form at the website www.sandiego.gov/graffiti/ index.shtml, offers tips for parents and has a way to volunteer for paint-outs or adopt-a-block efforts. There are also interactive features aimed at helping children understand graffiti and the punishments and, in conjunction with I Love a Clean San Diego, a school assembly program is available. Let’s get serious about wiping out graffiti in our community by not looking the other way when we see it. Report it right away.

I’m sitting on the floor of my newly cleaned-out room, contemplating what college life will be like and reflecting on my last year of high school. In a few hours, I’ll be boarding a plane to New York City. A few thoughts run through my mind; did I forget to pack my toothbrush? Will I be forced to eat lunch alone in the bathroom? What advice should I give in my final column? Surprisingly, the last question is one of the hardest to answer. College admissions were so all-encompassing that it’s difficult to pinpoint “what every high school senior should know.” An aspiring marine biologist from The Bishop’s School, a star swimmer from La Jolla Country Day, or even another political science major from La Jolla High would all have vastly different perceptions of the college admissions process. My most essential piece of advice, as cliché as it sounds, would be to stay true to yourself. Don’t inflate your resume or apply under an obscure major to gain an edge. There are definitely ways that appli-
cants can “work the system.” But usually, undergraduate admissions can see through these attempts. Writing about what you know will translate into acceptances. Don’t be afraid to have fun with your personal statement. Make sure any risks taken are reasonable by consulting your peers or teachers. But if you’re a naturally funny person, allow your humor to enhance your essays. Start your essays early! It might be a little late for this advice, but summer is the best time to start college applications. Last summer, I wrote several rough drafts. By the time I was inundated by schoolwork in the fall, I was grateful that my college application work consisted mostly of edits. At the very least, have an idea of what you want to write about. Don’t stress too much. You can always drop a few applications. The process isn’t as intimidating as it seems. As long as you stay organized and keep deadlines in mind, you should breeze through the first semester of your senior year. Lastly, remember that acceptance into your dream school isn’t everything. Columbia was not my first choice, but I could not be more ecstatic about where I’m headed. With these last few pieces of advice, I want to say good luck. The college admissions process can be daunting, but hopefully what I’ve written helps you through it.
to get involved By MArye Anne fOx Chancellor, UCSD
You can help create a better future for California. Yes, you. One of the best ways you can help is to support our students and their education. At UC San Diego, we are proud to have some of the nation’s best and brightest minds on our campus. They are motivated and eager to tackle difficult global challenges, and we are committed to giving them the top-quality education and skills that they deserve and need to become the future leaders of our state. However, we face many challenges due to the state’s dwindling commitment to, and investment in, public higher education. This year, the University of California’s state budget was slashed
by more than 20 percent, and this was on top of previous significant cuts and more are anticipated midyear. The campus faces tough choices to address the budget gap and this is where you can help. The future of our public research universities lies in our ability to rely less on state funding and more on creative funding solutions. This includes engagement in partnerships and collaborations, which will bring in revenue and allow us to combine our knowledge and resources to meet community needs. It includes engagement in advocacy efforts to let our state legislators know that higher education cannot withstand further cuts and still provide world-class opportunities for our students and faculty. It includes further engagement in philanthropic

n Question: In Europe, drivers entering a traffic circle yield to cars already in the circle, but then enter the circle in turn. That is, if a driver is waiting to enter the circle when another car approaches the circle, the approaching car is obligated to slow down to give precedence to the waiting car. For the Bird Rock traffic circles, however, it seems to be the assumption that anyone approaching on La Jolla Blvd has the right-of-way over anyone waiting
on any of the other entry streets. Is the law different in California, or is this just a local La Jolla folkway?
n Answer: What’s good for Europe is good for America. What you describe is the law — not to mention common courtesy. Alas, drivers on the boulevard usually have blinders on as they approach and drive through the roundabouts. Couple that with those on the side streets who are hesitant and unwilling (or
unable) to show a bit of aggressiveness to insert themselves into the stream and you have the situation that you describe. California law does require signaling which virtually no one does. The only car with the right of the way is the one in the roundabout and if they are signaling you know where they are going. Keep those questions coming!

Find may help overcome antibiotic-resistant bacteria
By Lynne FriedmAnn
Scientists from The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have successfully reengineered the antibi-
otic vancomycin to kill the deadliest antibiotic-resistant bacteria. The walls of bacteria are made of a complex material called peptidoglycan. Vancomycin acts against bacteria by grabbing onto peptidoglycan, rendering it useless, and ultimately killing the pathogen. Unfortunately, bacteria have found a way to alter the peptidoglycan molecule so that what once attracted vancomycin now repels the antibiotic thus preventing binding. But two can play at this game and in so doing TSRI chemists
achieved a double victory. Researchers successfully altered vancomycin to be attracted to peptidoglycan in antibiotic-resistant bacteria and, in addition, the redesigned vancomycin maintains its ability to bind to wild-type peptidoglycan. Results are published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society. News release at http://bit.ly/qyMZMx.
Protection from colitis Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), affects more than 1 million
Many La Jolla teens still need whooping cough booster
Education Matters By mArshA sutton As students in the San Diego Unified School District prepare to return to school on Sept. 6, a new requirement for admittance still needs to be met by about one-third of the district’s 60,000 seventhto 12th-graders, according to the latest information from local officials. Assembly Bill 354, signed into law September 2010, requires all incoming students in grades 7-12 to show proof of having received the Tdap whooping cough booster shot by the start of the 2011-2012 school year. Acceptable proof is a copy of immunization records or a note from the student’s doctor. As of Aug. 18, about 21,000 SDUSD students still need to show proof. At La Jolla High School, 335 students out of a total enrollment of about 1,650 have not met the requirement, although these figures do not reflect students registering for school in the past two weeks who may have recently submitted their booster documentation. At Muirlands Middle
School, 541 students have not met the requirement. The school’s total enrollment is about 1,100 for grades 6-8, or about 370 per grade. Only students in middle school entering seventh and eighth grades are required to receive the Tdap booster, which means 541 students out of about 740 still need to show proof.
Numbers still changing SDUSD communications director Linda Zintz said these numbers for both La Jolla schools are the latest official numbers but are not quite up to date, with nurses processing Tdap paperwork daily. She said the news has been widely disseminated to parents, beginning last spring, through e-mails, newsletters, school websites, the district website, school marquees, automated robo-calls and other methods of communication. Another round of emails and telephone calls is planned for this week, to all the remaining students who have not yet met the requirement. “We’re letting them know about the new law and what their responsibility is and when it’s going to take effect,” Zintz said. Although parents are being told that students need proof of the booster by the start of school, passage of a second bill, Senate Bill 614, grants districts the option to extend the deadline for 30 more days from
patients in North America. The condition is prompted by different cytokines — small signaling proteins — that activate the immune system, causing chronic inflammation. Researchers at the UCSD School of Medicine have discovered that expression of a newly identified human cytokine — Interleukin 37 (IL-37) — protects mice from colitis, by downgrading inflammation. This is significant because IL-37 is a member of the IL-1 family and most molecules in the IL-1 family appear to promote an inflammatory response. IL-37 does
the opposite. Once the mechanism of IL-37 action is understood, scientists hope one day to engineer cells to overproduce IL-37 in order to treat or control an overactive immune system in humans. The study appears in Proceedings of the National Academy of Science (PNAS).

Zintz said significant progress is being made during these final weeks of registration, noting a marked increase in the required paperwork as the start of school draws closer.

A fire burns monday night near Linda rosa Avenue in Bird rock. A grass fire Monday evening on a Bird Rock hillside was put out before any structures were seriously threatened, according to San Diego Fire-Rescue spokesman Maurice Luque, who added the following morning that arson was the suspected cause of the blaze. Although some neighbors had heard that homes were involved, he said the fire was contained to the hillside near Linda Rosa Avenue and La Jolla Corona. It was reported at 7:04 p.m. Helicopters made several water drops on
the fire, a resident reported. By 8 p.m. units were being released from the fire, which was north of a spot where homes were threatened on July 4th weekend. The fire quickly grew to football field size six minutes after it began, threatening nearby structures. Firefighters quickly began fire protection for nearby property.

Vikings try to take next step By Phil Dailey firstname.lastname@example.org
he La Jolla Field Hockey team had its most successful season a year ago with a 13-win campaign, but this year, expectations are just as high as the Vikings look to take the next step in what will be the program’s seventh season. In 2009, the Vikings squeaked into the CIF playoffs as the No. 12 seed (out of 12), but last year, thanks to a 5-1 record in conference play, LJHS was the No. 3 seed. Though the Vikings didn’t live up to their seed, losing to Valley Center in the quarterfinals, they did continue to take another big leap. This season, six seniors, six juniors and several sophomores are back to continue the progress. The Vikings open the season today against San Dieguito, a showdown that will take place
at LJHS at 3 p.m. One big change for the Vikings this season is at the top. Gone is head coach Paula Conway, who left to become the manager of Olympic and Athletic Development for USA field hockey. Taking over the coaching duties for the Vikings are Bee Mittermiller and Lisa Tanner. Mittermiller (who will primarily coach the JV squad) has been a part of the program since inception. Tanner will coach the varsity and brings a resume that includes being a former field hockey coach at Lexington Christian Academy (Lexington, Mass.). The past two weeks the team has held tryouts at Muirlands Middle School, and so far, Tanner likes what she has seen. “I’m really impressed with the players and I expect them to win some games,” Tanner said. “Varsity has set the goal to win CIF this year.

Local swim events get ready for races In the early-morning hours on Sept. 8, area locals and La Jolla Sunrise Rotary Club members will dive into the Pacific Ocean to raise money for San Pasqual Academy, the county’s only residential school for foster teens. “The swim is one of La Jolla Sunrise Rotary’s annual events,” said Lauren Pickard, chairman of this year’s 22nd annual Bob Litchfield Invitational Swim. “La Jolla Sunrise Rotary has been raising funds, donating gifts and service to San Pasqual Academy since October, 2000 when it planned and sponsored a luncheon, ‘For Kids Sake,’ which netted $35,000 for the school,” said Barbara Gerber, a former Rotary Community Service Director and co-chairper-
son of that event. Consisting of approximately 45 members of all ages, La Jolla Sunrise Rotary meets at 7 a.m. on Thursday mornings at the La Jolla Shores Hotel. The club raises money for several local and international charitable and community service programs. It sponsors an annual 4-Way Speech Contest and the Jack Morse Patriotic Speech Contest for local students. Interested in signing up? Contact Lauren Pickard at 619-322-7686 or waveskifun@ netscape.net. You may also register at the La Jolla Beach and Tennis club at 6:15 a.m., where swimmers will be bused to the Cove to begin the race.
Rough water swim set for Sept. 11 Another summer classic is also on the horizon as the 81st annual La Jolla Rough Water Swim is scheduled for Sept. 11. The local event is dubbed as America’s premier open water swimming competition and attracts more than 2,000 swimmers ranging in ages from 5 to 85 years old. There are three different levels of competition for all levels of swimming from juniors (250 yards), masters and amateurs (one mile) and gatorman (three miles). The races get under way at 9 a.m. and both the start and finish lines are at the Cove. For more information, go to www.ljrws. com or call 858.456.2100.

Cameron Moore took the opening kickoff 70 yards for a score. Less than two minutes later, Jalen Harvey broke down the right sideline for a 50-yard score to make the game 16-0.
www.lajollalight.com From Vikings, A22 it’s going to be tough.” Though the goal is always to win, this season the team is also looking to take that next step to compete with the top-tier field hockey schools in the county. “It’s hard because we don’t have a feeder system like many of the other schools,” Mittermiller said. But that seems to be changing with the recent success. The program is now getting more attention this season with more than 40 players trying for the varsity and JV teams. Many of the players who are finding success in field hockey are athletes who are also successful in soccer and lacrosse — sports that in many ways are similar to field hockey. One of those athletes is senior Aubrey Sloan, who tried field hockey as a freshman as a way to stay in shape lacrosse. “Last year we had a lot of crucial seniors, who we have lost,” Sloan said. “Even because of that, we’re hoping that our team can come together. “We hope we can make it to CIF and to win, but mostly we want to understand each other and work well together.” Having a change in the coaching staff has been the biggest challenge so far for this group. “It’s definitely different,” senior Ashlyn Warny said. “We’re not used to (Tanner) yet, but we’ll adjust. “We want to try and make it farther in CIF of course,” she added.

Martha “Marti” Maryanna Boney 1923 – 2011
Marti Boney died at Naval Medical Center San Diego on August 24, 2011, several weeks after sustaining a massive heart attack. Marti was born in Ontario, Oregon, on September 16, 1923, the third of five children of Cornelius and Priscilla Funk. Soon after, the family moved to Corvallis, Oregon, and later to Los Angeles, in 1945. Marti travelled alone by train from Los Angeles to attend her
freshman year at Wheaton College in Illinois. She then completed her bachelor’s degree in merchandising and speech at the University of Southern California in 1947. While at USC, Marti and her sisters formed a singing quartet and she continued the love of singing and music throughout her life. Shortly after graduation, she married George Farwell West in Los Angeles and they moved to San Francisco. Marti’s love of people was the foundation of her Christian faith and a driving force throughout her life. She was active in collegiate groups at Los Angeles’ Church of the Open Door, led young married couples at Brooklyn Heights Presbyterian Church, and upon moving to San Diego in 1953, she later served as deacon at La Jolla Presbyterian Church. She was honored to receive the “Mother of the Year” award by the California State Christian Endeavor organization. Marti quickly rose to be the youngest fashion merchandising buyer on the West Coast at Macy’s in San Francisco. Later she had a successful real estate
career in La Jolla. She was Chairman of the Dana Unit of then Children’s Hospital in 1964 and later served as President of the Women’s Auxiliary to Children’s Hospital in 1967. She served as chairman of its 13th Annual Children’s Hospital Fair in 1966 and reversed red ink in the Hospital’s Gift Shop when given one year to do so by its Board. She served as requested to support countless teas, fashion shows, luncheons, dinners, galas, football classics, golf tournaments – the more notable being the openings of Mission Valley’s May Company, San Diego Stadium in 1967 and the Fashion Valley Mall in 1969- all benefitting Children’s Hospital. After moving to La Jolla in 1968, Marti founded the La Jolla Committee for Multiple Sclerosis in 1972 and served as its charter president. Again using her merchandising skills, she founded the MS Head Dress Ball in 1973 which featured elaborately designed floral head dresses created by West Coast floral shops. These were so lavishly designed and modeled by highly costumed beauties in the Head Dress Parade,
that the Ball was televised locally. Marti, herself, won the Sweepstakes Award in 1974 by wearing a 15 foot high, 25 pound “Mame” head dress. Her extensive work with MS earned her its “Hope Chest” by the National MS organization in New York City. Marti was president of the Star of India Auxiliary in 1970 and was a charter board trustee of the Committee of 100 where she worked to preserve Balboa Park’s Spanish architecture and create Spanish Park along Harbor Drive. In 1971, as a charter board member of the San Diego Cultural Heritage Commission, she continued preservation efforts to develop Heritage Park in Old Town. In 1992, she was one of the first women chosen as an American Women of Today in recognition of her work to improve American communities. Marti also actively supported the San Diego Symphony Orchestra and the San Diego Bar Auxiliary. With friends she formed Les Mystiques, a ladies lunch group which met monthly for more than 20 years. She often wrote humorous
songs and poems to memorialize its members and activities. After losing her son, Brent David West, in 1980, and successfully battling Hodgkin’s disease, she retired from philanthropic activities and found more time to travel. In 1984, she met the love of her life, Marvin “Doug” Boney, a flight captain with Trans World Airlines. His job allowed them to live abroad for a year in Paris and Cairo and these provided exciting adventures such as those to Bombay. She remembered an elegant evening performance of Aida at the Pyramids of Giza, Egypt, as a travel highlight. When home, she enjoyed playing bridge, mahjong, golf and tennis, and many dinners on the beach with friends at the La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club over 40 years. Marti was preceded in death by her son, David. She is survived by beloved husband, Doug, and daughter, Marjo Dyer. Marti has a large and extended family of sisters, brother-in-laws, son-in-law, stepdaughters and cousins whom she loved dearly.
The family thanks the NMCSD staff for their kindness and thorough medical care. Services will be held at La Jolla Presbyterian Church, 7715 Draper Street on Saturday, September 3, 2011, at 2:00p.m. Burial will be private. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to Rady Children’s Hospital Auxiliary, 3020 Children’s Way, MC5013, San Diego 92123.

Banking background gives Doug Dawson the know-how to help non-profits succeed Born and raised in Washington, D.C., Doug Dawson began his career in wealth management with Riggs National Bank, one of the oldest banks in the United States, often referred to as the “Bank of the Presidents.” Growing up in his Doug Dawson East Coast family, Dawson said there was a tradition of giving your time, talent and treasure to those less fortunate. It was, and is for Dawson, as he says, “an obligation of living!” After moving to La Jolla in the early 1970s, for the next 30 years, Dawson held senior management positions in the private banks of both Union Bank and Bank of America. Continuing his family’s philanthropic tradition, he has served on the boards of dozens of not-for-profit organizations. He was one of the founders of San Diego’s National Philanthropy Day 39 years ago. Today, Dawson serves as president of the Friends of the La Jolla Library, and on the boards of La Jolla Playhouse, Ronald McDonald House Charities, Torrey Pines Reserve, as well as numerous advisory boards. He is the executive director of the Ellen Browning Scripps Foundation. What brought you to La Jolla? My parents retired to La Jolla in 1971. Following my family, and a terrific career opportunity, lead me to La Jolla shortly thereafter. What makes this area special to you? Even with the growth of La Jolla, we have maintained a sense of community. I see my friends at Vons, and the proprietors of many locally owned businesses recognize all of us. What might you improve in the area? Avoiding the obvious responses, (parking, potholes, and traffic) I would like to add more philanthropic support for La Jolla’s treasured cultural assets, such as the La Jolla Library, and the Historical Society, as well as the Athenaeum, Museum of Contemporary Art, and our amazing Playhouse.

Aquatic videographers host 12th UnderSea Film Exhibition Photos courtesy of eric hanauer
By Jenna Jay arine life takes center stage at the 12th annual San Diego UnderSea Film Exhibition, Sept. 9 and 10 at the Qualcomm Hall in Sorrento Valley. Presented by the San Diego underwater videography organization UFEX, the exhibition will feature 32 short films by deep-sea filmmakers from around the world. A panel of independent judges appointed by UFEX chose the films to showcase from a pool of international entries. The exhibition will present 16 selected films each evening beginning at 7 p.m., with each film a maximum of 5-minutes long and all featuring underwater footage ranging from kelp forests and exotic fish to sharks, reefs and other sea life. “The exhibition is put on by a group of San Diego underwater videographers who were initially just looking for a showcase to show their videos to the public,” said Eric Hanauer, head of the UFEX outreach committee. “Over the last 12 years, it’s grown international.” This year’s UnderSea Film Exhibition will also feature the winning film from the Capture the World contest for underwater videographers, sponsored by Gates Underwater Products,
if you go ■ What: 12th annual San Diego UnderSea Film Exhibition ■ When: 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Sept. 9 and 10 ■ Where: Auditorium, Qualcomm Hall, 5775 Morehouse Drive ■ contact: (858) 651-2135 ■ tickets: $15 at sdufex.com; some tickets available at the door. Seating is open, and doors open 30 minutes prior to the show. Parking is free. Aggressor and Dancer Fleets. Unlike many other film displays, the UnderSea Film Exhibition requires no entry fees for participants and awards no prizes other than the distinction of having a film chosen for the event.
Claiming patrons of the film exhibition will take away “an appreciation for the underwater world,” Hanauer said, “For most people, the ocean is a barrier and there is still much false information going out, things like Shark Week. A lot of people are afraid of the ocean … if there’s one thing we want to convey, it would be the beauty of the underwater world and the artistry of the people who are shooting these films and conveying that beauty.” Seascapes from the depths of Indonesia to the Fiji and Galapagos Islands and other exotic locations are expected in this year’s short films. “The trends [in videos] kind of follow the travel trends in diving,” Hanauer said. “One year Indonesia was a hot destination for exotic small creatures. A few years earlier, people started going to Guadalupe Island to film white sharks. The last couple of years, if there’s been a trend, it’s been an environmental trend. A lot of shows have a green message.” Hanauer said the audience is expected to be half divers and half people interested in nature and the oceans. A portion of the proceeds will go to Birch Aquarium at Scripps and the Chula Vista Nature Center.

Tall ships will add high drama to sail festival The Californian, shown here with cannons blazing, is the official tall ship of the state of California. A replica of an 1847 cutter, she was built at spanish Landing in 1984 and launched at the summer olympics in L.A. Darrell Slater
“All hands are working this month,” Gallant said. “And we can always use volunteers. We have something for everyone around here; you don’t have to be a sailor. Anyone who asks if we’d like some help: the answer is Yes!” the first Festival of Sail was in 1999. Some 500,000 people showed up to see the parade of Class A ships — all over 200 feet long. “It was incredible, and incredibly crazy,” Gallant said. “So we decided to only do it every three years, when
the tall ships go on rotation, from east Coast to West. but the event is so popular that we’re doing it annually again.” the preamble to the four-day festival begins sometime before noon on thursday, Sept. 1, with a parade of tall ships — mostly smaller Class b ones, up to 150 feet long — led by a Navy vessel, sailing into San Diego Harbor. the parade (which should last about two hours) can be viewed from a number of locations besides the embarcadero —
like Shelter Island, Harbor Island or Cabrillo National monument — wherever you can find parking. Or bYOboat if you have one, and watch from the water. “the best place to launch is the main boat ramp on Shelter Island,” said sailing pro and maritime museum publications editor Neva Sullaway. “Or you can launch small craft like kayaks right near the San Salvador site. the festival itself begins Friday morning, when you can board the tall ships and chat with their crews, or soak up some sounds on the berkeley, the museum’s 1898 ferryboat, where entertainment will run the gamut from sea chanteys to contemporary rock, mariachis, and steel drums. If you’re up for something more active, you can take part in a cannon battle at sea or sign on for a pirate adventure cruise. And of course, you can visit the museum, and see the “paradise” exhibit, a celebration of the era of tall ships and adventurous men. Over 200,000 visitors are expected over the four days, so you won’t be alone, but if you come at off-peak times, you should do just fine. tickets are needed to access the festival area, but the parade-viewing and vendor sector are free.
If you go ■ What: Festival of Sail ■ When: 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sept. 2-4; Tall Ships Parade Sept. 1 ■ Where: Maritime Museum of San Diego, 1492 North Harbor Drive ■ Tickets: $10-$15, good for area access all four days; $40+ for on-water activities ■ Contact: (619) 234-9153 ■ Schedule: sdmaritime.org ■ Tips: Go in off-peak hours (morning or late afternoon). Forget parking along the Embarcadero. Park in the lot across the street or consider taking the trolley to the nearby Little Italy station and walking from there. ■ Festival Sidelight: See shipbuilders in action. At Spanish Landing in Point Loma, where the Maritime Museum is building a full-sized, fully functional, historically accurate replica of Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo’s flagship, San Salvador, the first European vessel to reach America’s West Coast.

By Lonnie Burstein Hewitt Ahoy, all you lovers of frigates and cutters and schooners! the tall ships are coming! And San Diego maritime museum’s got ‘em! more than 20 visiting vessels will be here for the Festival of Sail over Labor Day weekend, and there will be plenty of family fun around the North embarcadero. robyn Gallant, the museum’s event planner, marketing director, and just about everything else, is having a busy month. “I’m a onewoman show here,” she said. “I do everything but the accounting. I love planning events, but this one is really labor-intensive. I have to work with the Navy, the Coast Guard, the port of San Diego, Homeland Security, the Fire marshall, the Health Inspector. I’m even in charge of port-a-potties!” Apparently, it takes a village to stage a Festival of Sail. Gallant supervises some 300 volunteers, many of them “youngsters” in their 70s and 80s. Normally, she has about six months to organize the event. this year, because of the big “three Voyages to paradise” exhibition (at the museum to Jan. 1) and the building of the San Salvador at Spanish Landing (see sidebar), she had only eight weeks.

UCSD builds knowledge exchange corridors to connect to community By Will BoWen UCSD sits perched high atop a lofty hill overlooking the town of La Jolla. But has UCSD become an ivory tower, aloof and detached from the communities below it with very little in the way of structures that allow for the free flow of information, knowledge, and creative intelligence from the community to the university and back? Professor Teddy Cruz of the UCSD Visual Arts Department and Professor Michael Cole of Communications both think so and they are trying to do something about it. They’ve put together a pilot project called “Knowledge Exchange Corridors: The UCSD Community Stations Initiative.” The aim of the program is to revitalize the university’s commitment to community service through the installation of pipelines for information flow between the campus and surrounding communities. At the Calit2 facility on campus on Aug. 19, Cruz and Cole gave a presentation about their work and opened an art show at the Calit2 Art Gallery that highlights the features of their program. Students and teachers from the associated Summer Workshop series were also present to share their projects. In the Calit2 Art Gallery there were large colorful maps and visualizations of the people and organizations involved in the project. There were also three computer stations and three small visual display units to provide information. An “OptlPortable” (a large dis-

Aguerre Brothers’ Liquid Nation Ball is not your average fundraiser By Patricia B. Dwyer Fernando Aguerre has been building bridges since he convinced the Argentinean government to re-legalize surfing in 1978. He builds them as president of the International Surfing Association, bringing surfers together from 70 different countries (many of them at war with one another) to surf together peacefully. Aguerre is also a founding member of the Surfing Industry Manufacturers Association (SIMA), an organization that unites competing surf companies to collectively work for humanitarian and environmental good. He said this strategy of having people to talk to each other led to his never having a single lawsuit to deal with during his 20 years as co-owner of Reef clothing company. Aguerre will continue to “make people talk to each other,” on Saturday, Sept. 17 at his annual Liquid Nation Ball, a fundraising event to benefit 13 different oceanand surf-oriented charities. “You know what the nic-
If you go ■ What: 8th annual Liquid Nation Ball ■ When: 6:30 p.m. Sept. 17 ■ Where: La Jolla home of Fernando Aguerre ■ Tickets: $300; just 350 tickets to be sold ■ Web: liquid-nation.com est thing in the world is?” Aguerre asked. “It’s to connect two people who need to talk, but who have never met. This is why we bring the organizations here, so they can talk. A lot of people know about them, but people don’t know how to reach them. So we put them in the same room.” Aguerre and his brother, Santiago, held the first Liquid Nation Ball eight years ago to benefit SurfAid, a foundation that works with disease prevention in the Mentawai Islands. After two galas that raised more than $300,000, Aguerre said they decided to spread the wealth and include 12 more charities.
This year, 13 charities will be represented and Shaney Jo, founder of Keep A Breast, a charity that works toward breast cancer awareness, will receive SIMA’s Humanitarian of the Year award. The award was given to musician Jason Mraz last year for his work with Life Rolls On. The evening takes place in Aguerre’s oceanfront home in La Jolla, where he and his girlfriend, Florencia, greet every guest at the door. Local musician Suzy Skarulis strums and croons as everyone arrives and files through Aguerre’s home (loaded with historical surf memorabilia), toward the massive patio on the water where the party takes place. “At most fundraisers, you buy a table, you sit at the table, you spend the whole night at the table,” Aguerre said. “Here, you arrive and it’s just hanging out, it’s six hours of hanging out.” The table-less event kicks off with a live auction, offering items like a day of golfing with professional surfer Kelly Slater, or an all-

paid trip to France for the Quicksilver Pro. At the end, Aguerre auctions off the outfit he is wearing, which is always festive and tends
to garner $4,000 to $7,000 per article of clothing. The evening comes to end after a big dance party on a clear dance floor over
Aguerre’s indoor pool, but not after having raised hundreds of thousands of dollars, as well as awareness for over a dozen charities.

Try this ‘green’ grilling guide for better barbecues possible do organic or natural lump charcoal.
Kitchen Shrink By Catharine L. Kaufman Let’s close the season with a clean and green grilling philosophy that you can carry over to the next ecofriendly summer. n Gas it up Choose propane over charcoal for multiple reasons — the former produces half the emissions of its carbon cousin, and burns cleanly, which translates to less smoke in the air and your eyes. Once finished with your propane tank, most vendors give a trade-in fee toward your next purchase, and even recycle the old one. If you are a diehard charcoholic, buy products with no additives, harvested from sustainable forests, and if
n Passing taste and drug tests Free-range chicken does not mean drug-free. Make sure your birds are hormoneand antibiotic-free, and are fed a vegetarian diet without animal by-products. And if you must grill beef, it’s not only good enough to be organic, it must also be grassfed. Organic cows could still be grain-fed, that raises the acidic levels in their rumens (stomachs), producing an environment where dangerous, acid-resistant E. coli can flourish. We know all about that infamous foe when passed to a human. n Honey, I shrunk our carbon footprint Try the best of both worlds — local and organic. Fruits and veggies get jetlag, too. Scope out farmers markets, co-ops and healthoriented markets that support area farmers. n Burnt offerings Meats, fish, even veggies
Mahi Mahi Burgers a Go-Go n For your Labor Day shindig try a burger bash and make a healthy smorgasbord — lamburgers, chicken patties, salmon and crab cakes, and these amazing, eco-friendly, wild caught mahi mahi burgers. You won’t have to fish for compliments! n Ingredients 1 pound of mahi mahi fillets, cut in chunks 2 tablespoons of fresh cilantro, chopped 2 tablespoons of hoisin sauce 2 tablespoons of wasabi or lemon mayonnaise 1/4 cup of scallions, sliced 2 tablespoons of fresh ginger, minced 1 garlic clove minced Sea salt and cracked black pepper to taste 2 tablespoons each of canola and sesame oil n Method In a food processor, combine all the ingredients except the oils, and pulse until finely chopped. Form into four patties and chill for 2 hours or freeze for 25 minutes. Combine the oils and brush on the grill. Cook about 4 minutes per side or until thoroughly cooked. Serve with toasted sesame buns, butter lettuce, heirloom tomatoes, and extra hoisin sauce or mayo. should be prepared like baby bear’s porridge — just right. No Cajun-blackened, charred or blistering skins, please. While they may taste good, they’ve been found to be carcinogenic.

n Recycle, re-use Depending upon what your city permits, recycle the works from cans, cardboard and bottles to plastic and foil. Where possible, use reusable plates, cutlery and cups, and cloth napkins. If you must do throwaways, at least buy biodegradable or sustainable products made from bamboo and other natural products.
n Bigger is better When hosting a crowd, it’s best to buy in bulk for your staples like drinks, snacks and condiments to pare down on packaging waste. n Grime time Clean your grill when it’s still hot. Make a paste combining 1/4 cup each of baking soda and water, and scrub with a wire brush. Wipe it down with a wet
cloth, then fire it up again to burn off any residue. I also use assorted stainless steel mesh pans to go on top of the grill to keep it clean, and stop small food items (like shrimp and veggies) from falling through the slits and feeding the fire.

FROM 10 questiOns, B1 Who or what inspires you? My 17 year-old son, Eric, inspires me the most. Eric was diagnosed with testicular cancer two years ago this month. He battled through his emotionally shocking diagnosis, continuing to play three sports at La Jolla High School, maintaining a strong GPA, and volunteering at Ronald McDonald House Charities. Eric will always be my inspiration! If you hosted a dinner party for eight, whom (living or deceased) would you invite? I would invite my mom and dad, Elsie and Ed (they would enjoy the dinner guests); Thomas Jefferson, (founding father); Abraham Lincoln (I’m fascinated by that period in history); James Taylor (musical entertainment); Winston Churchill (greatly influenced the world); Jackie Robinson (sports and much more); and Ellen Browning Scripps (world famous philanthropist whose humanitarian legacy I have had the professional privilege of representing for 40 years).
What are your favorite movies? Not in order, “The Graduate,” “Sleepless In Seattle,” “Rudy,” and “Forrest Gump.” What is your most prized possession? Possessions are not very important to me, but my roadster, and my two Maltese dogs are special. What do you do for fun? I enjoy live theater, (La Jolla Playhouse), Padres and Chargers games, as well as delicious restaurants shared with my children, and my sweetheart, Sally. Describe your greatest accomplishment. Foremost is being dad to my five incredible children, Ted, Tracy, Danica, Annie, and Eric. Oh yes, also my daughter-in-law, Stephanie, (Ted’s wife) who is expecting the birth of our first grandchild in October!

RELIGION & spirituality SPOTLIGHT...
Rev. Raymond G. “Jerry” O’Donnell, Pastor We believe that All Hallows is much more than simply a place to worship once a week. It is also a center for learning, teaching, sharing faith experiences, and for giving and receiving that strength that we all need for our life-long journey with God. We are those servants mentioned by Jesus (Matthew 25:1430). Each of us have been richly gifted, but these gifts must be invested wisely and generously to help others, according to the principles of good Christian Stewardship. Know that you are most welcome at All Hallows. We hope that you will find your faith home here in our community. May God bless you.

Arterra chefs link their entree flavors to the seasons By Kelley Carlson t Arterra, which means “art of the earth,” Executive Chef Tony Miller turns to his roots for inspiration in creating dishes. Growing up in the Midwest and on the East Coast, Miller noted that he experienced each of the four seasons distinctly, and wanted that to be reflected in his food. ”You can taste the seasons changing,” he said. One of his favorite items for the summer at Arterra — the menu will change Oct. 1 — is the Sweet Tea Brined Chicken and Waffles, a mixture of Benton’s bacon waffle, sweet corn and maple crema. Miller has a couple of entree recommendations for patrons enjoying “refined” service in the warmly hued dining room, with its cushioned seats and its gauzy curtains. One is the Fennel Pollen Seared Halibut, with potato puree, pickled cherry, braised fennel and lemon; the other is the Lobster Mac ‘n’ Cheese, incorporating mascarpone, parmesan, white truffle, orzo and chives, which is offered year-round. Children may choose items such as pizza, chicken and burgers from their special menu; Arterra also offers them a treasure box from which to select small toys — “kind of like at the
In addition to its main dining room, arterra includes indoor (left) and outdoor lounge areas.

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: Hand-made Fettucini dentist’s office,” Miller said. In the opulent indoor lounge, guests can relax in large, stuffed chairs with pillows or sit on metallic-colored seats around the bar, watching sporting events on one of eight TVs, while sampling more casual fare. There’s Crispy Peking Duck Tacos, a Trio of BLT Sliders and the 3 a.m. Cup of Noodles — “what the chef eats in the middle of the night,” Miller said. These contain crispy pork, spicy bacon broth, soba noodles and poached egg. When the weather is pleasant, guests can venture outside and set up at the outdoor lounge, adjacent to the pool. Kick back in the large cabana with its oversized seats or enjoy some one-on-one time at a table for two, while basking in the glow of a fire pit at night. Patrons will hear Top 40 tunes for morning motivation, with
slightly lower-key music as day turns into evening. During happy hour, Arterra is at its most vibrant, busiest state — there’s live music to DJ-spun to reggae and rock, depending on the day of the week. Guests who desire a more intimate experience are advised to arrive at the start of happy hour (when it’s less crowded) or after 8:30 p.m. There are also private dining rooms for special events: There’s the newly redecorated, elegant Vintage Room, suitable for wine dinners and chef’s tables. The comfortable Living Room, with its red velvet curtains and autumnal palette of colors, provides books on topics such as golf courses and Lucille Ball, as well as two TVs. Finally, there is the Great Room, featuring a fireplace and accommodations for a full-service feast or a reception-style affair.

It’s time for art-lovers of all ages to celebrate the arts at a four-day extravaganza called Art San Diego. Back in 1970, a trio of Swiss gallerists started Art Basel, an annual international art fair that came to be known as “the Olympics of the art world.” In 2002, Miami jumped in with its own version, drawing more than 60,000 visitors last year. In 2009, two Del Martians, Ann Berchtold and Julie Schraeger, decided to put our region on the art map by creating Art San Diego.
At Art san Diego, Quint Gallery will have a unique display (not a 99-cent but a 99-dollar store) a pop-up pop art shop by artist Jean Lowe where all objects are for sale. Grant Mudford Their goal: to become the No. 1 contemporary art fair on the West Coast. Berchtold has some 15 years of experience in what she calls “cultural philanthropy,” which includes the founding committee of San Diego Visual Artists Network, founding a children’s program called Inspire Art Kids, directing the L Street Gallery at the Omni Hotel, and co-creating the San Diego Art Prize.

Film, fun and fashion fire up museum’s alt.pictures fest By Lonnie Burstein Hewitt ilm buffs from both sides of the border flocked to The Museum of Contemporary Art La Jolla for alt.pictureshows.2011, a festival of short films that lit up the night on Aug. 25. This popular annual event, masterminded by MCASD Film Curator Neil Kendricks, is now in its ninth year. Though short in running time, the 17 films showcased in five different indoor and outdoor locations were long on impact, imagination and style. Viewers wandered freely between the screening rooms, sampling the array of cinematic treats. The hit of the evening was “Logorama,” a wickedly funny attack on runaway consumerism that won an Oscar for Best Animated Short Film in 2010. An added bonus was the flashy fashion show featuring star-quality clothes by Tijuana designer Marc Huizar, which, along with the documentary “Ready to Wear,” showed off the style-savvy of our neighbors to the south.

Save the Date! Realizing there is no La Jolla Calendar, resident Sharon Hinckley decided to make one. She spent hours with Nancy Warwick and Joe Porteous going over prototypes. Also helpful in choosing the final images were Karen Fast of St. James by the Sea Gift Shop, John Bolthouse of La Jolla Historical Society, and Adrain Fortmann of Wall Street Art ‘n’ Framing. Sal Usman from Copy Cove compiled the material, and with the help of astrologer Kate Karolyi, all of the moon signs are in their right places.

Author will discuss life with bipolar disorder
Water covers 70 percent of the Earth’s surface. True. And the world’s oceans contain 100 million trillion gallons of water. There are several theories on how the oceans were formed the past 4.6 billion years: the cooling of the primordial Earth to the point where the outgassed volatile components were held in an atmosphere of sufficient pressure for the retention of liquid water; comets or asteroids colliding with the Earth brought water; biochemically through mineralization and photosynthesis; and gradual leakage of water stored in hydrous minerals of the Earth’s rocks their work was done. — NOVA’s ‘Origins’
The International Bipolar Foundation will kick-off its free mental health lecture series with guest speaker mental health journalist John McManamy at 6 p.m. Sept. 8 at Sanford Children’s Research Center, Building 12, 10905 Road to the Cure, San Diego.

McManamy’s lecture is titled, “Living with someone who has bipolar; living with someone who has ‘normal,’ — and will integrate “cutting-edge brain science, ancient wisdom and personal insight into common sense principles for dealing with difficult situations in the here and now.” A social hour will begin at 5:30 p.m. The lecture will be followed by a question-andanswer session.

Stay sharp, savvy with a class at Osher Lifelong Learning Institute Fall program starts Sept. 26 n
By Steven Mihailovich A variety of topics — ranging from Dante’s “Divine Comedy” to Earth’s magnetic field — are part of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute’s (OLLI) schedule of courses, now open to registration for the fall quarter. Located at the UCSD Extension campus, some 650 members strong, OLLI will offer nearly 200 classes over the 10-week quarter beginning Sept. 26 and running until Dec. 2. There will be an orientation day for the public from 9:30 to 11 a.m. on Sept. 24. The courses are strictly for individuals, ages 50 and older, and the entire program is designed and operated by its members. According to OLLI president Reed Sullivan, the trait makes the classes a pleasure instead of an obligation. “This isn’t a university where you text during class, look for a date, and go to sleep,” Sullivan said. “These people are here because they want to be, not because they have to be. Some have more experience than the professors do.” That experience underpins the whole program, with about half of all lecturers coming from the membership, Sullivan noted. For example, a class this fall on

the catastrophe at the Fukashima nuclear power plant in Japan will be discussed by a panel of three nuclear scientists who are members of OLLI. Lecturers are also recruited from the UCSD staff and other universities, as well as from prominent national speakers on tour, Sullivan said, with lecturers paid a fee from the OLLI budget, which totals $228,000 this year. Topics nudge the noodle “It’s generally correct that it’s the lecturer who drives the popularity (of the class),” Sullivan said. He added that Arabic

a 10-member curriculum committee selects the courses and lecturers, with subject matter divided into four categories: Law and Society, Science and Medicine, Art and Humanities, and International Relations. “We’re trying to integrate what’s happening in the world with some explanations about it,” Sullivan said. “Some people prefer courses that are entertaining, such as music. If you come to a lot of classes, you can kind of tell which ones members like most. First of all, the class is full, and second of all, the question-andanswer period is animated.” Burt Levine of La Jolla has been a member for 13 years and coordinates the Current Events courses. While discussions can become heated over topical issues, Levine said all classes are much more involved because of the quality of attendees as much as lecturers. “You reach a stage when you’re not embarrassed to ask,” Levine said. “Some questions come out of right field and sometimes it can give you a whole new perspective. We have an informal rule to hold your questions until the lecture is complete. Because once this group starts with questions, it stops the lecturer cold.” Aside from Current Events, controversial issues are also explored in other forums, including Inside Politics, Town Hall, and the Debate Series, which will examine euthanasia and nu-
clear power this fall. The Master Class series, which scrutinizes the various aspects of a single issue every other week, is the most popular by far, Sullivan asserted. The two Master Class topics this fall are titled “Israel: Past, Present and Prospect,” and “Lining Up for Revolution in the Arab World.” “We charge $10 to limit the amount of people,” Sullivan said. “This way, we can ensure that everyone gets a seat.” Learning leads to laughter If OLLI appears like more
work than fun, then a look at its other offerings, such as Friday live concerts, a theater group, Wednesday cinema viewings, day excursions, potluck luncheons, and even a Saturday morning bridge club, should alleviate that concern. Although founded five years ago through a $1 million grant from philanthropist Bernard Osher, Sullivan said OLLI was built upon the adult learning program that has been in place at UCSD under various designations for the past 38 years. The average age of members is 70-75 years, with some members in their 90s. “About 80 percent of those who join, stay,” Sullivan said. “We lose people

for health issues more than any other reason.” The variety of subjects covered by OLLI motivates most members to join, according to Janice Shulak of Carmel Valley, a member for the past nine years. She believes the courses not only improve her knowledge, but her health as well. “When you get older, you worry about your brain deteriorating,” Shulak said. “This exercises your brain. It’s definitely interesting.” Yet OLLI is not just a way of learning, but a way of life, for 18-year member Marcy Goldstone of La Jolla. By meeting over mutual interests, many members eventually expand their contact beyond the classroom by going out together and visiting one another’s homes, with some participants even becoming couples. “We care about each other,” Goldstone said. “It’s the caring. We become friends.” With Americans today living longer than ever, spending nearly as much time in retirement as in their careers, OLLI provides twoyear member Jerry Kent of Santa Fe Valley perhaps the best possibility to catch up on missed opportunities. “The best part is the growth one can achieve by attending the various classes,” Kent said. “When you go through your career, you’re always coming across things that interest you and you wonder, why don’t I pursue this? And the reason, of course, is you don’t have time. Now you have time and they have a wonderful variety of classes — everything from brain science to poetry — and there are no exams.”

North Coast Rep’s ‘Lend Me A Tenor’ revisits madcap comedies of the 1930s By Diana Saenger The North Coast Repertory Theatre will open its 30th Season with Ken Ludwig’s “Lend Me A Tenor,” nominated for numerous Tony and Drama Desk Awards. The production is directed by Matthew Wiener. “Lend Me A Tenor” pays homage to the screwball comedies of the 1930s, and in this farce, renowned tenor Tito Merelli, aka “Il Stupendo,” is the lead in “Othello” at a gala fundraiser. But before he can even leave his room, unexpected mishaps create chaos. Wiener likens “Lend Me A Tenor” to early madcaps, such as “Noises Off” and “Bringing Up Baby.” “There’s a lot of door slamming in this play,” he said. “And it’s really a fun thing for the actors because it’s ridiculous people doing ridiculous things very quickly.” The cast includes Ted Barton (Saunders), Courtney Corey (Maggie), Jill Drexler (Julia), Jessica John (Maria), Bernard X. Kopsho (Tito),
Albert Park (Bellhop), Jacque Wilke (Diana) and Christopher M. Williams (Max). Wiener, in his 14th season as producing artistic director of Actors Theatre in Phoenix, has helmed plays of all genres around the country, including “Doubt,” “The Lieutenant of Inishmore,” “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof,” “Angels in America,” “Hedda Gabler,” and “A Christmas Carol.” “A farce has a certain kind of theatricality to it,” Wiener said. “The performers have to become bigger than life, but not be cartoonist. The stakes are high, but the consequences aren’t. So everyone thinks what’s going on is very important, but they’re not playing Medea, and almost all of them live happily ever after.” Wiener promises the fastpaced “Lend Me A Tenor” will make people laugh throughout the entire performance and leave with a smile on their faces. “And now, of all times,” he sighed, “We all just need to laugh.”

FROM ART, B11 attracting 6,000 attendees. This year, they’re back at the Hilton, with more than 50 galleries participating, from cities like Montreal, New York, Buenos Aires, Berlin and Shanghai, side by side with La Jolla notables Joseph Bellows and Mark Quint. Besides all the international exhibits, the Fair offers themed Art Labs featuring a range of regional artists showing light sculpture, video, music and performance art at various locations, and a host of activities for children, including mask- and puppet-making, a giant puppet parade and a mass picnic on “San Diego’s largest picnic blanket.” Look for works by UCSD faculty members Ruben Ortiz-Torres and Jay S. Johnson, winners of this year’s Art Prize, awarded by San Diego Visual Arts Network (SDVAN) to “encourage dialogue, reflection and social interaction about San Diego’s artistic and cultural life.” And don’t miss the inventive furniture design from Canada, Mexico, and the U.S., including a selection of pieces by SDSU students and alumni. “The first year of the fair
Independent art consultant Betty Lane of Del Mar Sculpture Garden will show new large-scale sculptures like this one by Michael Stutz. ira schrank was marvelous, the second was more international — very dynamic, with lots going on, and a lot of great art — and I think this year will be just as terrific,” said Robin Lipman, Membership Chair of the Contemporary Arts Committee of The San Diego Museum of Art, which (along with the Museum of Contemporary Art and other area museums) is one of ASD’s local partners. With partners like these, and sponsors like UBS (a global wealth-management firm with offices in La Jolla), the Fair is well on its way.
As Ann Berchtold pointed out: “It took Art Miami four years to build their attendance; now they bring in a half-billion dollars in Fair-related revenues to the city. We’re only in year number three.” For something really special, join the VIPs for a splashy opening night reception and after-poolparty. And if you want to turn your Fair-going into a Labor Day weekend staycation, the Hilton is offering discounted Art Fair rates on rooms, with VIP event tickets included.
