BY DAVE SCHWAB email@example.com Most are familiar with Academy award-winning actor Cliff Robertson’s career, but what isn’t well known was his disdain for Hollywood or his love of aviation and his native La Jolla, which he always considered home. “If you ever asked Cliff what was the dominant thing in his life, he would never have said it was acting: “It would have been aviation,” said Arnold “Polecat” Palenske, his La Jolla classmate, with whom he planned annual La Jolla High School reunions for the classes of 1939-44. Robertson died Saturday, Sept. 9, a day after his 88th birthday. Ironically, Gardner Frank Rutherford Marston who was a year behind him and one of those who attended the annual reunions, died at Scripps Memorial Hospital the day before Robertson succumbed of natural causes in New York. One of America’s foremost dramatic actors, Robertson had a career that spanned six decades as an actor, writer and director from the dawn of television in the ‘50s to Broadway to playing Spiderman’s beloved Uncle Ben in three films in the 2000s. He was personally chosen by John F. Kennedy in 1963 to portray the president in the motion picture “P.T. 109” — the story of Kennedy’s heroic World War II exploits as a P.T. Boat skipper. In 1968, he won the Academy Award for his role in “Charly,” the story of a mentally retarded man whose SEE ROBERTSON, A8

hen the lights went out last week, were you ready? A lot of people, from homeowners to business owners, initially stood around thinking, “The power will be back in a little while so I’ll just hang tight” But when reality set in and people figured out that it wouldn’t be, many jumped in their cars and headed home from work only to find out they weren’t moving very fast, their kids were stuck at school or maybe that they were very low on gas. Then when some got home and realized they didn’t have any ice or batteries on hand, out they went, back into the traffic hoping to find a store open. Others treated the event as an experi-
ence, meeting neighbors they hadn’t talked to before, having family board game nights or gazing at the stars that weren’t dimmed by artificial lights. Meanwhile, emergency responders and city and county workers dealt with the bigger picture of handling the immediate issues. Even Councilwoman Sherri Lightner and her staff stepped up, coming to the aid of a woman stuck in a City Hall elevator. Later she used Facebook to get information out to anyone who had a smartphone or computer with enough battery power and working Internet connections. As SDG&E and other officials try to sort out how one person’s mistake could cause a ripple effect that hit 4 million people, closing schools and
some businesses into the next day, County Supervisor Bill Horn perhaps summed up the lesson to be learned: Work on your preparedness plans for whatever disaster may strike. During a press conference with Mayor Jerry Sanders and SDG&E President Michael Niggli last Friday, Horn thanked area residents for their calm demeanor in the face of the blackout, but urged them to get ready for the next disaster. The basics are pretty simple as outlined on a number of websites from county’s site www.sdcounty.ca.gov/ oes/ready/ to the American Red Cross www.redcross.org/, the lists are many and varied. But they all urge having on hand at least a three-day supply of SEE READY, A11

Best of La Jolla voting wraps up
Kudos to ... the seahorse on La Jolla Blvd.
Kudos goes to this eye-catching mailbox in the shape of a seahorse at 5906 La Jolla Blvd., which has become a landmark for people entering La Jolla from Bird Rock. Robb Luscomb, who has lived at the residence since 1986, built the ornamental piece along with friend Dave Voss back in the early ‘90s. Luscomb, a tradesman who works at the San Diego Convention Center, said he and Voss formed the mailbox out of quarter-inch rebar and chicken wire, then plastered and concreted it. He said he repaints it every other year, which he did recently giving the formerly gray structure a new greenish-blue hue. After all this time he still gets favorable comments about his creation. “My friends gave me a high-five for painting it,” he added.
The votes for Best of La Jolla 2011 are in, and we’re starting to work on the section announcing the winners, which will be in the Oct. 27 edition. Meanwhile the last two winners in our drawing for those who voted are Karen lajollalight.com Thygasen, who won a $50 gift certificate from Tootsies Shoe Boutique and Marie Holbrooke, who gets an eight-pack of tickets to the Birch Aquarium.

Streetlights glowing again along Girard By Dave SchwaB email@example.com A lengthy effort to patch the aging electrical infrastructure that has periodically darkened sections of La Jolla’s downtown appears to be wrapping up. “At this moment, every streetlight in the Village of La Jolla is working,” Egon Kafka said last week, even as the countywide blackout hung over town. A La Jolla Town Council Trustee and La Jolla Village Merchants Association board member, he has been a seemingly one-man crusader working with the city on streetlight restoration. Electrical power has returned, “at least for the time being,” to the especially troublesome 48 streetlights of the Girard Avenue-Wall StreetHerschel Avenue circuit which dates back to November 1945. Kafka said streetlight repairs have put 16 of those 48 lights on a separate circuit.
Meeting set to discuss Coast Blvd. walkway
Those lights, on the two blocks of lower Girard above the dip on Prospect Street, have been dark almost 10 years because their wires were just completely destroyed underground,” he said. “I have methodically been calling in streetlights that needed repair, 30 or 35 over the last month or two, and especially over the last few weeks,” he said, adding the city’s streetlights division deserves credit for being responsive with limited resources. “They’ve done a bang-up job and really worked hard and not disrupted traffic all summer, even though they had to keep working to create new wires under Girard — it’s a miracle,” he said. Village streetlights need to be continually monitored to ensure their performance. “It’s important to report whether they’re out or flickering on and off,” Kafka said.

La Jolla Parks and Beaches Inc. will host a meeting on Oct. 1 to talk about a beautification project along the Coast Boulevard walkway above the Children’s Pool. Members of the group want to complete the walkway from the lifeguard tower to the gazebo nearby and to coordinate it with the rebuilding of the lifeguard facility. The meeting will start at 8 a.m. at the tower and will move at 9:30 a.m. to the Friendship Room at 939 Coast Blvd. to explore what improvements people would like to see and possible ideas to pay for it. They will also review the lifeguard station plans. Landscape architect Jim Neri will lead the workshop. Contact:LJParksnBeaches@ gmail.com for more information.

Remaking a mall: UTC transformation set to start By Kathy Day email@example.com A luxury 14-screen theater and an expanded 24-Hour Fitness club will be among the first arrivals at the remodeled Westfield UTC shopping center, company officials said last week. Construction will start soon on the “total transformation,” with ArcLight Cinemas taking the upper levels of the old Robinsons-May
building and 24 Hour’s Super Sport Club the lower levels. The first phase, set to be finished by the 2012 holiday shopping season, will also include a remodeled dining plaza adjacent to the ice rink — separated so it won’t be cold and humid any more — and new dining options, including a Tender Greens organic restaurant. “We’ll be adding more and different stores, including

Not Gonna Fall For It Falling can be a major threat to the health, well-being and independence of older people. According to the San Diego Health & Human Services Agency 1 in 3 SD residents over age 65 will experience a fall within the next 12 months. Even more alarming, a projected 2/3 of these individuals will fall a second time and up to 30% will suffer injuries resulting in decreased mobility and independence. Despite these alarming statistics, the SD Fall Prevention Task Force wants seniors to know that falls are preventable.The #1 thing that older adults can do to decrease their risk of falling is to engage in regular exercise and balance training. Exercise maintains strength and flexibility, while balance training builds confidence – both of which are important to fall prevention. Fear of falling can interfere with daily and recreational activities, creating a vicious cycle of decreased strength, balance and mobility. The professional therapists at Ability Rehab can help. We will assess your risk and develop a customized program to improve balance and strength, directed at increasing confidence, safety and independence. P.S. In honor of Fall Prevention Awareness Week (September 18th – 24th) we will be offering a 2 for 1 special on our Community Balance Class. Call Ability Rehab for details.

the area outside the current food court. Although some people on the board of the now-defunct Promote La Jolla organization had expressed concerns about the plans when they were discussed a couple of years ago, Phil Coller, president of the La Jolla Village Merchants Association said the project hasn’t raised any eyebrows among members since last week’s Westfield announcement. “It shouldn’t concern us,” he said. “We are a different market — they are a mall.” People, he said, come to La Jolla for what it is and its specialty offerings. “We have to do our own thing, be more of a village and keep that feeling intact.” Efforts are in the works to get things moving in that direction, he added. Tierney, who lives in Kensington, agreed with Coller’s assessment that UTC and La Jolla draw different customers, but said they would be

Tierney said the ArcLight theaters, which will seat 1,800, will be similar in concept to the Cineopolis complex that just opened at Del Mar Highlands in terms of having more comfortable seating and a café. But ArcLight’s “Black Box” design aesthetic, with nothing on the walls to distract moviegoers, and extra-wide seats with double armrests will set it apart, Tierney said.

Sleep scientist to speak at La Jolla Yoga Center
After a six-month hiatus, the La Jolla Coastal Access and Parking Board met Sept. 6 to amend bylaws and designate the new La Jolla Village Merchants Association (LJVMA) as the group’s financial agent. LJVMA president Phil Coller said the merchant group’s responsibility would be restricted to creating a bank account.

commission states that the boards’ funds are reserved for short- or long-term parking and traffic circulation, and the other half is reserved for a remote parking reservoir and shuttle system. Board member Ray Weiss noted any shuttle system created needs to be self-sustaining because of insufficient seed money. The board is comprised of three appointees each from La Jolla Town Council (LJTC), La Jolla Community Planning Association (LJCPA) and the La Jolla
Village Merchants Association (LJVMA). The reconstituted group presently includes: Tom Brady, Orrin Gabsch and Joe LaCava from LJCPA; Ray Weiss from LJTC; and Egon Kafka, Michelle Lerach and Deborah Marengo from LJVMA. They will elect officers and consider creating a new agreement with the city to become a stand-alone entity at its next meeting Oct. 4. For more information visit www.lajollacpa.org/cap.

From robertson, A1 abilities are briefly restored. Despite his extensive credits, the New York Times wrote in its obituary that “he was consistently praised by critics, but never quite reached the top echelon of movie stardom.” Palenske, a Naval aviator, noted Robertson was modest about his flying skills despite having received international acclaim for his advocacy and promotion of aviation and aviation safety. “He was a superb pilot and had flown everything in the world,” he said. “He was still flying right up to a couple of months ago.” Robertson, whose primary residence was on Long Island, bought the 1922 Spanish colonial Casa de la Paz at 333 Dunemere Drive in 1963. He sold it to real estate developer Ronald Baldwin in 2005 for $14.5 million. In previous interviews with the Light, Robertson said he delivered newspapers as a boy to the oceanside mansion and had dreamed of one day owning it. He leased out the main home and stayed in a separate apartment whenever he was in town. People who knew Robertson, like La Jolla historical Realtor and neighbor Linda Marrone, said he was a La Jollan through and through. “Cliff Robertson had told me that it puzzled him that author Thomas Wolfe once said, ‘You can’t go home again,’ ” said Marrone. “Coming home to La Jolla has always been a special time to me, a time to catch up with old friends and look forward to the future,” he said. “Cliff loved La Jolla, and referred to it as Shangri-La,” noted Brendan Ruff, former
publisher of the Light. “He missed the old days of La Jolla when there were relatively few people.” And he didn’t shy away from local involvement. He was grand marshal of the La Jolla Christmas Parade in 1992 and grand marshal of the LJHS Homecoming Parade on Oct. 23, 1998 and would also do things with the school’s Drama Department, said Sandy Coggan Erickson, president of the LJHS Foundation and founder of the alumni association. He also was a life member of the La Jolla Historical Society and did a promotional video for the group to aid their ongoing capital fundraising campaign to restore Wisteria Cottage, noted Carol Olten, the society’s historian. And a plaque saluting his service in the U.S. Merchant Marines occupies a spot at the Mount Soledad Veterans Association Memorial. Robertson was childhood friends with Mary Ann “Tootie” Barber Hatch, daughter of Philip Barber who developed the BeachBarber Tract and built the home on Dunemere Drive. “He did a lot of good things for lots of people that nobody ever knew (of),” she said, She painted an idyllic picture of growing up in La Jolla with Robertson in the ‘30s and ‘40s. “It was an ocean feel and beach time and just a wonderful little old town where everyone ran around in bare feet and swam every day at the Cove or WindanSea,” she said.

From robertson, A8 Mera Kelley, a former tenant of Robertson’s at the Dunmere home, said President John F. Kennedy was so impressed by the actor’s rendition of him in the World War II film “PT 109,” that “he sent him a rocking chair that had been portrayed in the film as a gift.” Lifelong friend Palenske said there was a lot to like — and admire — about Robertson and how he carried himself. “You’d never know he’d ever been to Hollywood,” he said. “He was just a tremendous, straight-upright man, a very deep intelligent thinker. He rose to the pinnacle of his profession, which was make-believe, and he did it so convincingly that he won an Oscar. His acting was so natural — he made it look easy.” Off-screen Palenske added Robertson was “a true gentleman who never lost the touch for his old childhood friends.” Robertson’s feel for La Jolla was best summed up, said Olten, in a 1984 profile in San Diego Magazine where he is quoted as saying, “Listen, we’re here on this little blue marble Earth and if we’re lucky, we have a hometown that means something to us. I always talk about this (La Jolla) as my Walden Pond.” Survived by his daughter, Stephanie Saunders, Robertson was predeceased by another daughter, Heather Merriweather Robertson, and by two ex-wives, Dina Merrill and Cynthia Stone. Robertson’s funeral is scheduled for Friday in East Hampton, N.Y. At press time no local services were planned.

Actor Cliff Roberston spent his 88 years in many different real-life roles. He was a reporter in Ohio, a playwright, a World War II veteran, an aviator, director and a reluctant Hollywood whistleblower. In this account of the 1977 scandal by Sean O’Neal at www.avclub. com, it all began when Robertson received a note from the IRS regarding a $10,000 check he had supposedly cashed, with Robertson soon discovering that his signature had been forged. Despite being warned not to press the matter by many in the industry, Robertson filed a report that launched a widespread studio and even criminal investigation, eventually revealing that Columbia Pictures president David Begelman had embezzled more than $61,000 from the studio. Begelman was fined $5,000 for his forgery and bounced back by taking over MGM in 1980. Robertson, meanwhile, claimed he was then shunned by the industry for several years for daring to take on its powerbrokers. The affair is chronicled in the 1982 bestseller “Indecent Exposure.” On the big screen, La Jollans will recall that Robertson played The Big Kahuna in the first “Gidget” movie (1959). Older readers will remember his Academy Award-winning role as “Charly” in the 1967 film about a mentally challenged man whose intelligence is increased in a scientific experiment. Younger readers will recognize him as Uncle Ben in the Spider-Man film trilogy (2002-2007). When Warner Brothers announced plans in 1963 to film “PT 109,” a book about the new president’s war heroics, John F. Kennedy himself suggested the handsome Robertson for the lead. He later wrote, produced, directed, and starred in “J.W. Coop,” a small 1971 gem about a rough-luck rodeo cowboy. Other screen gems included his role as a CIA middle-management type in “Three Days of the Condor” (1975), and a haunted husband in Brian De Palma’s, “Obsession” (1976). Roberstson has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6801 Hollywood Blvd., and a 1966 Emmy for “The Game,”presented by the Bob Hope Chrysler Theatre. — Susan DeMaggio

Panelists ponder survival of Internet By Lynne Friedmann Last week, La Jolla was the scene of a wideranging discussion on the future of the Internet. Before a rapt audience of academics, students and technology industry leaders, visionaries demonstrated novel applications and described myriad new ways to interact with the Net, while research scientists laid out the formidable technical challenges ahead to satisfying ever-increasing demand as users become more dependent on the Internet to manage their daily lives. Amid heady predictions came this cautionary note: “We are more dependent on electricity than on anything else,” said Vint Cerf, vice president and chief Internet evangelist at Google. A few hours later, a power outage left millions of people in San Diego County, Orange County, Arizona, and parts of Mexico without electricity. “How Will the Internet Survive?” was the theme of the 2011 Marconi Society Symposium, held Sept. 8, at UCSD’s Calit2 (California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology). In a point/counter-point dialogue, experts evoked a future in which Internet access, via mobile devices, allows us not only to auto navigate while driving, read e-books, and manage finances but one day might monitor a refrigerator’s contents and suggest recipes for dinner, monitor weight loss progress by wirelessly reporting bathroom-scale readings to our physician, locate house keys via radio-fre-
quency sensors, and alert 911 emergency crews to our exact location in a building. In an “augmented reality” demonstration, a menu written in Korean was viewed through the lens of a smartphone camera held by Qualcomm co-founder Irwin Jacobs. In real time, the names of food items translate on screen into English and prices instantly convert to dollar and cents. Pilot programs in education are in the works to provide low-income and at-risk students with Internet resources. Project KNect, funded by a grant from Qualcomm’s Wireless Reach initiative, provided ninth graders in select North Carolina public schools with Internet access through free smartphones in order to mine supplemental math content aligned with course objectives and teachers’ lesson plans. “They achieved a 100 percent pass rate of grade 9 algebra,” said Jacobs. This compared to a 67-percent average pass rate in state testing. “Crowdsourcing” has allowed researcher Albert Yu-Min Lin to “funnel a bunch of brain power” in his search for the tomb of Genghis Khan. To date, some 1.8 million Internet users have used their visual perception to scan, at their leisure, bite-size, satellite images taken over a 6,000-square-kilometer area in Mongolia to aid Lin in his quest. But an estimated 2 billion Internet users worldwide is straining existing technology. Internet traffic is doubling every one to two

years with much of the demand taking the form of email, web browsing, and music and video sharing. “The demand for bandwidth seems insatiable,” said Robert W. Tkach, director of the Advanced Photonics Research department at Bell Laboratories. “More data means more traffic, even if all you do is back up existing data.” But researchers face limits due to the nonlinear nature of fiber cables, current antenna technology, and the future ability to support bandwidths in the Gigahertz and even subTerzhertz range. “Fiber optic constraints are being pulled by the applications,” said Theodore Rappaport, professor and founding director of the Wireless Networking and Communications Group at the .University of Texas at Austin. “We need a new WDM.” (In reference to Wavelength-Division Multiplexing; an industry standard that expands capacity of a fiber network.) Add to the above, concerns about Internet security and every-increasing power con-
sumption. “You really need the creative people, the ‘gee whiz’ group that keeps fueling the demand,” said Ramesh Rao, director of the UCSD branch of Calit2, in summary of the morning’s discussion. “Then you also need the community that can keep the technology up with the demand.”At an awards dinner that evening (by candlelight due to the power outage), the 2011 Marconi Society Prize was presented to Irwin Jacobs and the late Jack Wolf — two engineers whose groundbreaking research and designs in digital communication helped propel the information revolution. Both men were longtime professors at UC San Diego. The Marconi Society was established in 1974 by Gioia Marconi Braga, the daughter of Guglielmo Marconi, the inventor of the first practical radio-signaling system, who shared the 1909 Nobel Prize in physics for what was then known as “wireless telegraphy.” — Lynne Friedmann is a science writer based in Solana Beach.

REBA members use their broad based knowledge of these nuances to work with not only buyers and sellers but out of area lenders, title officers and appraisers to help them understand the local market. REBA also has a roster of local affiliates in these areas and would be happy to provide consumers with those referrals upon request.
Homeowners in La Jolla have long known that with the restriction regarding “for sale” signs they must find other ways to expose their homes to the market. Educated sellers know that listing their home with a local agent who is a member of REBA is the best way to reach other experienced agents and ultimately find qualified buyers for their home. The network local agents have nurtured over for close to 80 years is a crucial part of getting your property the exposure it needs in today’s market. La Jolla has 10 different subcommunities and perhaps dozens of micro-neighborhoods, each with its own flavor and value. In addition,
sporadic development and remodels over the years has resulted in few “cookie cutter” homes. That means most homes are unique and cannot

Birdstock 2011 Birdstock 2011, the community celebration for Bird Rock residents, drew a crowd of about 300 people on Sunday. Bird Rock Community Council President Joe Parker said it was a great event that included a 9/11 tribute to firefighters, represented by the local crew from Station 13. He praised BRCC board members Shawn Richardson and Roni Lincoln, who coordinated the event, along with volunteers Pamela Garvey and Felicia Parker. “They did a great job pulling it all together, from the music to the games and getting the Bird Rock Artist Guild and the BRE Peace Patrol involved,” Parker said.

A typical client, he added a La Jolla family with children that Coastwise helps to manage their children’s college savings plans as well as their parents’ retirement accounts. Asked what distinguishes his firm, Kyle answered, “We’re just incredibly disciplined about what we do. Our greatest strength is rationality.” Kyle added Coastwise helps clients avoid making mistakes a lot of investors make. He said that’s done by first educating them about the market and then helping them pick the best money management plan for their needs. After that, financial success is a matter of getting the client to set a plan and stick to it. “If it’s a good plan, it’s going to work over time,” said Kyle.

One more time: take down those ugly signs our View More than a month ago, we appealed to business owners and the La Jolla Village Merchants Association to tackle the sign blight that is tarnishing our Jewel. But instead of seeing any improvement, we’ve actually seen more of the illegal A-frame signs.
We know the city won’t get to these violations any time soon so we’re renewing our call for the merchants group to take a stand on the signs. Encourage your members to take them down. Put the matter on your agenda for your October meet-
ing and let’s get moving. You’re the ones saying, “Put the Village back in La Jolla,” so start the cleanup now. We also encourage La Jollans to ask merchants to take the signs down. When you go into your favorite shops that use the A-frames or other streetside banners, tell them you’d appreciate it if they would do their part to cleanup La Jolla. Maybe mer-
chants will listen to valued customers. Perhaps the Light could help with a “Wall of Shame,” naming the businesses that are out of compliance with the sign ordinance. We’d rather not go there but something has to be done. We welcome any other suggestions.

After more than 10 months of outreach and hours upon hours of deliberation, the City’s Redistricting Commission approved the final map for the newly configured Council districts on Aug. 25. Because District 1, which I currently represent, had the largest population, it needed to be redrawn both to account for population growth and to accommodate a new ninth Council district. sherri The new District 1 will conlightner sist of La Jolla including the section currently located in District 2, University City, Carmel Valley, Del Mar Mesa, Pacific Highlands Ranch, Torrey Hills and Torrey Pines. While not everyone in the city was happy with the outcome, the new boundaries for District 1 closely matched what those in the La Jolla community wanted. For the first time in more than a decade, all of La Jolla will be rep-
n Question: I am wondering what the town rules are about days and times garbage trucks can operate here in La Jolla. Also are there any ordinances on trucks and buses running their motors while idle or parked? n Answer: Last year the city passed an ordinance that “allows refuse compacting, processing and collection vehicles to begin operation in residential areas at 6 a.m.” That’s an hour earlier than previously allowed. It was part of an effort to cut costs as the Environmental Services Department reorganized routes from eight-hour workdays to 10-hour days. Officials say the move enabled them to better use the daylight hours and get to the Miramar Landfill before it closes at 4:30 p.m. As for other large vehicles the state’s Airborne Toxic Control Measures require “a driver of a school bus or vehicle, transit bus, or other commercial motor vehicle to manually turn off the bus or vehicle engine upon arriving at a school and to restart no more than 30 seconds before departing. A driver of a school bus or vehicle is subject to the
resented in a single district. Also, University City, with its close ties to La Jolla, remains intact and is part of the new District 1 as well. This result could not have happened without the hard work of those of you in the community. Many of you faithfully attended every meeting, giving thoughtful and reasoned testimony about what the new District 1 should look like. Others sent letters or emails detailing both how District 1 should be configured and why. The Redistricting Commission listened. When it came time to draw the final map, the new District 1 looked very much like the Coast and Canyons plan that you in the community had proposed. I am especially proud of the result because this is how the process should work. As a longtime community activist, I have always believed the best decisions happen when those in the neighborhoods have a say. It is part of why I ran for office in the first place. I wanted to give those in the community a real voice at City Hall, and I am proud that you made your voices heard during the redistricting process. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Regarding the public review process of the home at 1912 Spindrift, I have full respect for every aspect of review and input by any and all joint committee members, trustees, neighbors and members of the public. It is not a perfect process but I believe it works. Because of my contractual and professional responsibility to my client on this project and the clear mandate of the LJCPA bylaws, I recused myself from any participation in the recent LJCPA meetings when the project and the possible appeal were being considered. Matthew Peterson, Esq., worked with the owners and my office to revise the design. He met with Mr. Merten to review the changes and then he presented the design to the La Jolla PRC, which recommended approval. Mr. Peterson requested and reserved a Planning Commission hearing date of Sept. 8 for the appeal. A process was set to obtain PRC and LJCPA recommendations, neighbor review and ultimately review at the Planning Commission on the appeal. It appears that the redesign and proposed attached garage met with widespread approval and addressed the concerns that would have been stated within the LJCPA appeal; however the appeal should have still been filed as a “place holder.”
There have been allegations that I had private communications with Phil Merten after the Aug. 4 LJCPA action to file the appeal, or that I somehow circumvented the LJCPA appeal process. Neither allegation is true. No discussion or conversation took place between me and Mr. Merten or any other trustees, and I took no action to prevent the appeal from getting filed. I did communicate with Vice President Whittemore, (who was incorrectly directed to abstain from voting on the project at a prior meeting when the home was recommended by the LJCPA for approval), and I indicated to him that I would direct Mr. Merten or Mr. LaCava to file the appeal. Even though I was conflicted, and per the bylaws could not participate in any way, I should have remembered to follow up with Mr. Merten and/or Mr. LaCava, and I did not. I accept responsibility and apologize for that oversight After the Sept. 1 meeting, the LJCPA officers met to review the facts and develop a procedure for filing appeals which will be presented at the October trustee meeting. As president, I take responsibility and again apologize for not following up to assure that someone filed the appeal. Editor’s note: For an extended version of this piece, go to www.lajollalight.com.

Betty Clare Waggoner Mitchell 1925 – 2011
Betty Mitchell, 85, passed away of natural causes in her La Jolla home on August 31, 2011. Her loved ones were at her bedside. Betty was born in Conway, Arkansas, on October 3, 1925, to John Cooke Waggoner and Nellie Dawson Waggoner. Betty began attending Arkansas State Teachers College but interrupted her studies in 1944 when she moved to Ft. Worth, Texas, with her sister, Maunelle Waggoner Martin, to work as a secretary at Convair. It was there that she met her future husband, Peter Mitchell. They were married that same year by Betty’s grandfather, Pastor Clare Dawson, and moved to Austin, TX, for Pete to finish his degree in Engineering at the University of Texas. Betty held down three jobs to support them during this time. One year later with degree in hand, Pete and Betty moved back to Ft. Worth and Pete returned to Convair. Betty became a housewife and mother when they adopted their only child, Mindy Joan, in 1950. Pete and Betty became interested in numismatics over the following years and their collecting expanded to include a home business producing Plexiglas holders to display coins. They shipped these multi-colored holders nationwide to coin dealers and individual col-
lectors. The family moved to San Diego in 1963 when Pete became an engineer at Astronautics. They fell in love with La Jolla and made the Village their home. They opened up Mitchell’s Coin Shop on Girard Avenue in 1964 with Betty running the shop by herself until Pete retired and joined her a year later. Betty became one of a handful of experts in the United States in Ancient Greek and Roman coins and did consulting work for collectors, museums and auction houses all over the world. They retired from their business in 1981. Betty lost Pete, her soul mate of 56 years, in 2001. She continued to live in her downtown La Jolla condominium with her Chihuahua, Lucy, as her constant companion. She spent her time doing occasional consulting work, needlepoint, reading, traveling with her family and taking walks with Lucy. She could often be seen at lunchtime sitting at one of the many outdoor restaurants in the Village, Lucy sitting on her lap. Betty is survived by her daughter, Mindy Mitchell Barlow; niece, Nancy Martin Rikel; nephew, Chris Rikel; grandniece, Niccolette Rikel; and her beloved Chihuahua, Lucy. In keeping with Betty’s wishes, there will be no funeral services. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the San Diego Humane Society in remembrance of Betty Mitchell would be greatly appreciated. “For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is taken down, we will have a house in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands.” 2 Corinthians 5:1-2 Please sign the guest book online at www.legacy.com/ obituaries/lajollalight.
Jim Snody 1929 – 2011
Legendary, colorful, retired PSA Captain Jim Snody of La Jolla passed away September 3 2011, at the age of 82. Snody served in the California Air National Guard’s 146th Airlift Wing, starting after high school as a mechanic and armorer on the P-51 Fighters. The Guard sent him to Air Force Pilot Training where he flew the T-6, T-33 and F-86 and served with the Guard flying F-86’s and Boeing C-97 transport aircraft until the late 60’s. Snody served in both Korea and Vietnam and his ANG crew won the prestigious Ricks Trophy in an Air Force wide competition in 1961. Snody joined PSA in 1966 and quickly rose to Captain on PSA’s smiling 737 and 727 aircraft. He served as Check Pilot and eventually as Chief Pilot. His status at the airline never affected his camaraderie with the line pilots or his colorful usage of the language. He was promoted to Vice President of Flight Operations and was instrumental in converting the “go-fast” airline into a highly fuel efficient carrier during the 1973 fuel crisis. He stayed with US Airways after the PSA merger, retiring in 1992. He flew almost every aircraft in the inventory with a perfect safety record. Snody was bigger, at 6’ 4”, than life and loved fly-
ing fighters. He was a great mentor to his nephew, Col. (Ret) Larry Stellmon, who he greatly assisted in his appointment to the Air Force Academy. Jim Snody was an exceptional aviator, a master of the engineering aspects of maintaining and operating aircraft, a mentor throughout many careers and a very special and inspirational individual for all those who had the honor and pleasure of knowing and working with him. He was a member of the 146th Airlift Wing Alumni Association, the Retired PSA Pilot’s Group, the Order of Daedalians, the Quiet Birdmen, the AIAA and numerous other aviation organizations. Jim is survived by his beloved wife and partner of 33 years, Barbara; his sons, James and George; and step-children, Brigette, Brent, Braden, Brooks and Stephanie; and nephews, Jim and Col. Larry Stellmon; and his many grandchildren. Captain Snody’s Memorial Service will be at 1300 hours on September 22, 2011, at the Fort Rosecrans National Veterans Cemetery. A private Celebration of Life will follow. Clear smooth skies and strong tailwinds forever. In lieu of flowers, donations are requested to the San Diego Air and Space Museum Scholarship Fund in the name of Captain Snody.

Ruth Ellison Box 1937 – 2011
On August 26, 2011, Ruth Ellison Box, 74, of La Jolla, CA, passed from this life with her family at her side after an extended battle with Alzheimer’s disease. She left this life as she lived it, with grace and dignity. Ruthie was born on April 5, 1937, in Olympia, Washington, the only child of Price and Mary Ann Ellison. She graduated from Colfax High School and attended Washington State University. After a brief career as a flight attendant for United Airlines, Ruth married Ensign Darryl D. Olson in August, 1958. They had two children together, Laura and James. Their marriage was cut short when Darryl died in a naval aircraft accident in 1969, leaving Ruthie widowed at age 31 with two young children. A stunning beauty, Ruthie worked as a photographer’s model in print and television advertisements, and as a travel agent. She married Commander Roger Box in May 1971. Roger’s assignments took the family many places around the globe before they returned to La Jolla in 1987. Ruthie loved California – the sunshine, the ocean, tennis – and the companionship of friends and family. Ruthie is remembered as beautifully poised and elegant. She was always a leader in Navy wives’ activi-

ties and was especially supportive of the other wives within her husband’s command while their spouses’ squadrons or ships were deployed. Her gentle love and kindness helped new and experienced wives alike endure the difficulties and challenges of the extended separations from spouses which was a part of Navy life. She was always at her husband’s side with a wife’s strength and determination contributing to his success in the Navy. Throughout this time, Ruthie was a loving mother and mentor to her children. She is survived by her husband of 40 years, Roger; her daughter, Laura Olson Abbey of Peachtree City, GA; her son, James Olson of Seattle, WA; stepchildren, Kim Box of Granite Bay, CA, and Leslie Levinson of San Diego; along with nine grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. A memorial service was held at Saint James by-theSea Episcopal Church in La Jolla on September 14, 2011, at 2pm, followed by a committal service in St. James Memorial Garden. A reception followed at the church. The family requests that donations be made to the Alzheimer’s Association or Navy Relief Society in lieu of flowers.

Boys water polo season ready to heat up By Rick LeBeau Following a rigorous summer training program that included a 10-day camp in Santa Barbara and hosting an Australian youth team, La Jolla High School’s boys team is hoping to rebuild from last year’s successes that left them just short of making the CIF Finals. The Vikings lost several players who matriculated to the collegiate water polo level on both coasts, leaving room for new stars to take the stage. Coach Tom Atwell will lean on seniors TJ Pugmire, Brandon Flores, Moshe Porter, Aaron Phillips, and Zach Nelson to lead the team in the water this season. He’s also expecting big things from underclassmen such as Brock Macelli and Todd Denaro, who had good club seasons this summer. Atwell is hoping to rely on a highly conditioned team to put pressure on the opponent all game long with their swimming prowess. Three weeks prior to Labor Day, the Vikings were in the water five hours a day, building a
swim-training base that is second to none in the county. Having lost five players who were 6-foot-3 or more from last season, Atwell says the main difference this year is that the team is faster and scrappier. They’ll have to be to contend with teams such as Bishop’s and Cathedral Catholic, as well as Coronado. The four teams are virtually a lock to be competing in the semis against each other 11 weeks from now. Highlights this season will be tournaments in Menlo (Northern California), Villa Park (Orange County), and the traditional big San Diego tournament — the AFC, which will include powerhouse programs from both San Diego County as well as Orange County, Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay Area. Atwell is counting on team cohesion to carry the team far — he stated that this year’s team has some of the best chemistry of any team he’s coached. The season started in earnest Tuesday with a tough match versus Scripps Ranch, which is de-

La Jolla’s Lord earns Ivy League honor Maddie Lord, a freshman on the Brown volleyball team, was honored by the Ivy League last week as the Rookie of the Week. Lord is a former Bishop’s standout and La Jollan. In three games at the Sacred Heart Invitational, Lord averaged 4.25 kills per set, 2.42 digs and a half a block per game. She made her collegiate debut versus host Sacred Heart and tallied 11 kills to go along with eight digs and a service ace. Lord broke through in a highly contested match against Rutgers. The contest went five sets, with the final two decided 28-30 and
17-19. Lord led the team with 24 kills in the match and also added an ace, four digs and a block. Lord nearly outdid herself again in a victory during the final game of the tournament against Hartford. The freshman posted a big double-double with 16 kills and 17 digs. She also set career-highs with four blocks and two service aces. For her efforts, Lord was named to the All-Tournament Team. The first-year hitter leads all Ivy League players after one week of action with 51 kills and a 4.25 kill per set average.

Defending champs off to solid start to season HigH ScHool RounDup The La Jolla Country Day volleyball season is off to a solid start. The team enter this week’s competition with a 5-3 record after making the semifinals of the Fall Classic Tournament. The Torreys are coming off a state championship last season, but are also replacing several seniors who went on to play at the Division I level. The season started on Wednesday, Sept. 7 against a good Bonita Vista team, but the Torreys came up just short after winning the first two games.

Actors need to ‘slow’ their lines in Milk like sugAr
Horton Hears the News Dr. Seuss expert finds seven ‘lost’ stories for book No. 45
By steve MihailoviCh he Sept. 27 release of “The Bippalo Seed and Other Lost Stories” by Dr. Seuss could force Grinches,
Sneetches and Loraxes to make room for what might be the next member of that venerable pantheon: the Wild Wheef. The Wheef joins the Icka,
Gritch, Grickle and other fanciful characters in the new Dr. Seuss book based on a collection of old stories that have been all but forgotten since their publication in Redbook magazine in the early 1950s. While the posthumous release of seven stories by one of La Jolla’s most renowned residents, Theodore Geisel, might appear dubious on the surface, the stories are the precursors of the rhythm, rhyme and rich illustrations that would catapult Dr. Seuss into the avant-garde of children’s literature, according to the stories’ discoverer, Dr. Charles Cohen. “If you hear there’s going to be a book of new stories 20
years after somebody dies, it’s reasonable to think someone found something at the bottom of a drawer and dusted off the paper clips and the crumbs,” said Cohen. “That’s what I didn’t want people to think because it’s just not true. I was going to say I hope people Dr. Charles will feel that Cohen this does him justice, but I don’t have to hope that. These are his quality stories. I know they are.”

FROM DR. SEUSS, B1 A dentist in western Massachusetts, Cohen said he has been collecting rare documents, drawings and memorabilia by and relating to Dr. Seuss since 1988. In that time, he became such a leading expert on the subject that Geisel’s publisher, Random House, selected him to write a biography on Dr. Seuss for the centennial of his birth in 2004. Cohen said he didn’t acquire the seven stories simultaneously, but rather as part of his more than 20-year accumulation of Seuss object that has resulted in a database of 33,725 entries at last count, though not all of them are actual items. Cohen pursued those stories and others on the Internet after continuously running across references to them. The seven stories were picked from the 30 similarly obscure stories Cohen possesses to become the 45th children’s book written and illustrated by Dr. Seuss because these had all the elements readers have come to expect, Cohen noted. “There are extremely strong stories and in addition, cumulatively amongst these, you get a very satisfying feeling of having all of those Seuss buttons pushed — the moral, the writing, the illustrations — all of those things,” he said. Aside from the content, the stories are even more valuable because of the context in which they were created. Citing historical accounts, Cohen said EVLJ_LaJollaLight half pg_Layout 1 8/24/11 the stories were written when Geisel

had just realized the style that would eventually lead to a revolution in how children learned to read. The seven “Bippalo Seed” stories were such a pinnacle in Dr. Seuss’s early career, that the reader will discover recognizable traces of plots and characters that were to become the basis of the author’s later, more famous works, Cohen added. “That’s what these stories really are,” he said. “They are an experiment of how (Geisel) could use his talents with his rhythm and his rhyme; this thing that makes kids able to memorize a whole story when they’re three-years10:15 PM though Page 1 they’re not supposed old even
to be able to read until they’re six or seven; and get kids to be interested in reading at a younger and younger age. There are all the important things you want children to learn about. This is something we expect from Dr. Seuss.” The merits of the new 72-page Dr. Seuss book parallel that of its author, according to Lynda Claassen, director of the Mandeville Special Collections Library at UCSD and curator of the 10,000-piece Dr. Seuss Collection there. She said that Dr. Seuss books continue to be top sellers, with “Oh The Places You’ll Go” the No. 1 gift at graduations. “The things he wrote about are the things people still care about,” Claassen said. “His artistic and literary efforts together create that timelessness. They still mean something.” Geisel’s widow, Audrey, said she didn’t know him when he wrote the stories found in “The Bippalo Seed and Other Lost Stories.” Although she’s not surprised that people still cherish her late husband’s stories, she still can’t pinpoint the attraction. Just like his characters, Dr. Seuss has entered his own pantheon, she said. “Like Aesop, the Brothers Grimm and others, you can’t put your finger on it,” she said. “On and on it goes. It’s my life now. I’m totally wrapped up in all the things that Ted was wrapped up in until he could not wrap anymore. Now he’s the lovely treasure chest when you enter the Seuss house and I’m the glass on the door. It’s beautiful.”
Bishop’s School Christmas Tea co-chairs reveal 2011 theme
ydia McNeil (left) and Micki Olin, co-chairs of the 22nd annual Christmas Tea at The Bishop’s School set for Friday, Dec. 2, have been hearing sleigh bells in their sleep for weeks as they plan for one of the tea’s merriest themes of all, “Dreaming of a White Christmas.” Each year, parent volunteers make the festive event one of the most beloved campus traditions. Hundreds of hours are dedicated to creating an elegant celebration, which includes a concert by the Bishop’s Singers, tea tastings, and honored tea pourers, including Head of School Aimeclaire Roche. The Bishop’s School, grades 6-12, is a co-educational college preparatory independent day school. Founded in 1909, 2011-12 enrollment is 780 students. More info at bishops.com COURTESY

FROM HIKER, B1 Breckinridge and tackling Yosemite’s El Capitan, but that was a walk in the park compared to Kilimanjaro,” she said. Still, Sharpe’s hike atop the dormant Tanzanian volcano wasn’t just a test of physical strength and endurance, it was for a cause: Sustainable Healthcare Assistance in Rural Environments. People made donations to send the hikers there. Sharpe explained the background: In 2010, Dr. Anna Kulidjian (an orthopedic surgeon at UCSD) and her husband visited a Maasai community at Campi Ya Kanzi in a remote area of Southern Kenya at the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro. The couple brought medical supplies donated by the group at UCSD and Dr. Kulidijian volunteered at the clinic, helping set up its trauma care. The village physician was away (one doctor supports some 7,000 villagers) so she and “super-nurse Vivian” manned the clinic on their own. Dr. Kulidjian reported more than 40 patients lined up outside the two-room clinic each morning! Most had walked miles to get there. An estimated 350,000 Maasai live in Kenya in rural and remote communities.

They suffer from HIV, typhoid, malaria and TB. Though traumatic injuries and malnutrition are common in their children, most Maasai do not receive medical care early enough for effective treatment because there is no means of transportation. Without an ambulance, the village doctor can’t get to women in childbirth and patients with traumas can’t get to the hospital. Working with Dr. Kulidjian and the Maasai Wilderness Conservation, Sharpe and her fellow hikers spent two weeks in Africa. The group took the

The coffee brought to their tents at 6 a.m. each morning woke the hikers, and after their stats (oxygen and heart rate) were checked, they began walking around 7-7:30 a.m.
Sharpe said they would hike for six hours and stop for the day, or hike for four hours, stop for lunch, and then hike three more. Everyone in Sharpe’s group completed the hike, a triumph in itself, and one hiker managed to run Mount Kilimanjaro — making it from the bottom to the top in just 7.5 hours. After the 8-day trek, Sharpe and her fellow hikers embarked upon a three-day safari. They returned home to La Jolla on Aug. 20. “Then I spent nearly two weeks recovering from my life-changing journey,” Sharpe sighed.

Dining is a six-sided affair at the upscale Hexagone By DANIEL K. LEW exagone, the French bistro in the heart of Banker’s Hill of downtown San Diego, takes its name from the geometric hexagon and referencing the six-sided shape of France. Fittingly, Hexagone’s owner, Parisian-born Patrick Halcewicz, attests to the many sides of classic and contemporary French cuisine offered in the elegant-and-inviting L-shaped dining room — also six-sided. “This type of place could exist anywhere in France,” Halcewicz said of the restaurant’s intimate atmosphere. Cream-colored draperies accent big windows offering views of city life outside, while walls filled with Art Nouveau posters from the early 20th century also give the place chic appeal. Halcewicz describes the restaurant’s daily offerings of about 20 appetizers and 20 entree choices as traditional Provençale French cuisine with Mediterranean and modern California influences. “We’ve got something for almost everyone’s tastes,” Halcewicz said. “And, our experienced, knowledgeable French waiters are very helpful.” Classical French appetizers remain the most popular, including French Onion Soup Gratinée, Frogs Legs Provençale, Escargots à la Bourguigonne, and Crispy

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: Hexagone’s Moscovy Breast of Duck with Leg Confit Sweetbreads in a Wild Mushroom Ragoût. Frogs Legs Provençale is especially fragrant upon its arrival at one’s table: A tantalizing aroma from chopped herbs, shallots, olives, peppers, and garlic butter smother the tender morsels of frog meat. Among the varied main course selections including beef, fish, chicken and lamb, Moscovy Breast of Duck with Leg Confit and Orange Sauce remains the best seller. The succulent duck is extra flavorful with its spice rub, along with the right amount of smokiness. The duck is first sauteed, then finished off in the oven while cooking in its own juices. “We use the freshest ingredients and take pride in our consistency of quality,” said Halcewicz, who added most of the
seasonal vegetables used are organic and picked from local farms. For dessert, Halcewicz recommends Crêpes Suzette cooked in a grand-marnier sauce, or his favorite — Apple Tarte Tatin, consisting of caramelized apples with calvados in a light puff pastry, served a la mode with French vanilla ice cream. The other “sides” of Hexagone’s offerings include a simpler lunch menu that includes sandwiches, Sunday Brunch, live jazz and blues on Tuesdays, wine nights, a full bar, and theater-goer specials. Since the restaurant is only a few blocks from Balboa Park, it offers complimentary roundtrip shuttles for diners to The Old Globe on nights when performances take place. Before entering the restaurant business, Halcewicz managed both the historic La Valencia Hotel in La Jolla and Rancho Valencia Resort in Rancho Santa Fe. He said his years in the hospitality field transcend to his philosophy of high standards at his restaurants: French Market Grille in Rancho Bernardo, Hexagone, and Gourmet On 5th — which offers deli selections, take out and catering service across the street from Hexagone. Free parking is available at an underground garage at the corner of Laurel Street and Fourth Avenue.

Surf Museum stoked over new Hansen retrospective “Hansen Surfboards – A 50 Year Retrospective,” opens Sunday, Sept. 18 at The California Surf Museum in Oceanside promising visitors “a vivid display of the legendary surf company, its founder and family history.” It chronicles Don Hansen’s move to the West Coast from South Dakota, where he was introduced to the sport in the basement of the Beta Theta Pi frat house at the University of South Dakota. His college roommates, who were from Coronado, invited him to vacation with them during their summers, and it didn’t take long before Hansen knew he belonged in California and he became a regular at San Diego’s best surf spots. In a press release announcing the show, Josh Hansen writes, “My dad has a very vibrant past and he’s taught all of us a lot about running a business by the way he lives. From the beginning, he has kept this a family business and involved so many key people from the community.” Hansen got his start shaping surfboards for Jack O’Neill and then in 1961, he moved to the North Shore of Hawaii where he went off on his own shaping and selling Hansen Surfboards from a small shack at the end of a dirt road.

FROM 10 questiOns, B1 leave the hustle and bustle of San Francisco for a more laid back lifestyle. We gave our real estate agent a one-and-a-half-page list of requirements for a place to live, and we met all of the criteria in La Jolla except for the fourth bedroom. Our house has a view of the ocean, is walking distance to the beach and restaurants, has lovely tropical landscaping, and it was a bargain compared to San Francisco prices (among other things). What makes this area special to you? The surfers running barefoot down the street in the mornings, seeing the ocean as I drive into La Jolla on La Jolla Parkway, the community, and knowing so many people in it. (And, that they’ve all seen me at Starbucks or Vons in sweats and a scrunchie and they’re still speaking to me!) What might you add, subtract or improve in the area? Hands down, I would improve the schools. The children are our future and they need to be educated (through a wellrounded curriculum) to be able to succeed and take care of all of us in the future. If I could ask for more than that, I’d put the money back into all of the public services (like the library, the Rec Center, fire stations, lifeguards) that make our community a great place to live. Who or what inspires you? I draw inspiration from the sun and the ocean.
If you hosted a dinner party for eight, whom (living or deceased) would you invite? Barack and Michelle Obama, Bill and Melinda Gates, Martin Luther King, Jr., Nelson Mandela, Bono, and Maya Angelou. What are your five favorite movies of all time? “The Breakfast Club,” “The Sound of Music,” “Top Gun” (even before I moved to San Diego), “Four Weddings and a Funeral,” “La Cage Aux Folles.” What is your most-prized possession? My laptop. Both my husband and I were put to the test when there was a fire nearby and all we took were our laptops. Mine has my life on it. What do you do for fun? Karate, walk on the beach, travel around the world, read French novels, play the flute, try new recipes, go to rock concerts with my husband, spend time with family and friends. Describe your greatest accomplishment. Having a positive impact on other people’s lives — whether it be my daughter, a foster child I mentored, a leader in a company I coached, or a hungry child in Africa my donations helped. What is your motto or philosophy of life? Integrity is my No. 1 priority.

Tearful urban legend may peel back the truth about onions Red Onion Relish
Kitchen Shrink By Catharine L. Kaufman With the seasons changing and kids back at school (which I liken to immersing their little bodies into a giant Petri dish), 24-hour bugs and even worse, the flu! will start to surface. Could the common, tearjerking onion (a member of the lily family and first cousin to garlic, chives and shallots) ward off all that ails you? You peel away the facts behind this folklore and decide for yourself! By the end of 1919, the influenza pandemic had killed more than 40 million people worldwide. During the height of the contagion, a doctor in the Midwest was paying house calls to various farmhouses hit hard by the epidemic. Upon entering one particular home, his nostrils filled with the pungent perfume of raw onions. To his amazement, no one in that household had contracted the flu. The farmer’s wife pointed to the assorted dishes in every room in the farmhouse filled with halved onions, and attributed the bulletdodging of the deadly disease to this home remedy.
n Ingredients: • 2 large red onions, thinly sliced • 1/4 cup of dark brown sugar • 4 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar • 1 cup of red wine • Sea salt and cayenne pepper to taste n Method: • In a large skillet, add onions and brown sugar, and cook over medium heat, uncovered for about 20 minutes, stirring frequently until onions are golden and caramelized. • Add vinegar and wine and bring to a bowl. Cook on low until liquid is absorbed. Season to taste. Serve warm or chilled. The inquiring-minded doctor asked if he could take one of the onions, and after examining the layers under a microscope, he noticed the tissues teaming with microbes. He hypothesized that the onion must have acted like a viral sponge, absorbing deadly pathogens from the air, and thereby creating a pristine, germ-free environment. n Fact or fiction? Today it is well known that onions, when consumed either cooked or raw, are mighty warriors against assorted ailments. Onions and other allium veggies,
more than 600 species in all, contain a motherload of potassium, folate, Vitamins A, B6 and C, dietary fiber, and are particularly rich in odoriferous sulfur compounds with antimicrobial properties found to lower blood lipids and blood pressure. Even the venerable World Health Organization touts onions for putting the skids on atherosclerosis and providing relief for treating coughs, colds, and bronchitis, and decreasing allergyinduced bronchial constriction in asthmatics. The more pungent perfumed onions such as the Western Yellow, New York
Bold and Northern Reds have the richest concentrations of flavonoids for antioxidant oomph found to be protective against stomach and other cancers. Attributed also to reducing inflammation and blood sugar levels, maybe an onion a day could keep the doctor away. n Worth a try? Naysayers claim the above-noted story is apocryphal, an urban legend created for pure shock value, that there couldn’t be any truth to the onion as a “virus sponge” since a virus would not choose to leave a human host’s body and attach itself to a non-living onion where it could not replicate. During flu season, try the experiment at home. All you have to lose is a few onions. Buy a bag and concoct wonderful dishes with the rest — sauté onions in stir fries, blend in yoghurt dips,
mince red ones in guacamole or seafood cocktails, bake a classic French onion soup, toss chunks in with roasted potatoes or stews, dial-up frittatas or quiches with onion rings, or whip up this batch of sweet and savory caramelized onion relish to enliven veggie or turkey burgers, sandwiches or a piece of chicken or fish. (Just don’t breathe it to a soul.) Reach the Kitchen Shrink at email@example.com or online at FreeRangeClub.com

Local firefighters join the community at Station 9 benefit
a Jollans Sally and Greg Ricchiuti hosted a salute to the firefighters of Station 9 in honor of September 11 at the La Valencia Hotel on Sept. 10. The community came out to raise funds for a renovation at the station (built in 1969) and connect over their memories of 9/11. Guests had dinner together and ended the evening by bidding on the works of local artist Erik Skoldberg and dancing to the music of the Wayne Foster Band. The fire-station project has a $400,000 price tag, and the Ricchiuti’s have raised $130,000 to date. More fund-raisers are planned. The project calls for an expansion of the station’s sleeping quarters, and the addition of a training center and fitness room.

nder the Museum of Contemporary Art’s boudoir-inspired backdrop, guests at the 35th annual Monte Carlo gala on Sept. 10 embraced the burlesque theme and arrived ready to enjoy some adult entertainment. The cocktail party featured signature concoctions followed by dinner from Giuseppe Fine Catering in the open-air dining room. After dinner, burlesque queen Dita Von Teese mesmerized guests with a scintillating performance. Following dinner, a new “after” party continued late into the night featuring DJs, dancing in the Boom Boom Room, charity gambling, munchies from Quality Social, and another late-night performance by Dita Von Teese. Funds from the gala, co-chaired by Valerie Cooper and David Copley, will be used for MCASD’s exhibitions and education programs. mcasd.org

Teens give up on big dreams in new Playhouse drama If you go ■ What: Milk Like Sugar
By diana Saenger Inspired by a story in Time magazine about a group of girls who make a pact to become pregnant at the same time, “Milk Like Sugar” runs through Sept. 25 at La Jolla Playhouse. Playwright Kirsten Greenidge’s story exploring the truth behind the girls’ actions struggled in its telling during the first act. Audience members commented that they weren’t able to understand the dialogue due to its rapid-fire delivery and/or they were unfamiliar with the colloquiums spoken. But those who stayed through the slower-paced second act, seemed tuned into the unfolding drama. And though moments of “Milk Like Sugar” might feel

A snappy opening features three African-American teens in a tattoo parlor where Annie (Angela Lewis) is acting fidgety and uncertain about the tattoo she’s about to put on her belly. Talisha (Cherise Boothe), who wants to be called “T,” dances about like she has
ants in her pants. She’s getting text messages that she blabs about so quickly it’s difficult to understand what she’s saying. Margie (Nikiya Mathis), pregnant and naïve, is only fixated on her world and the color pink. While the girls discuss what kind of guy they want, based on which cell phone he has, the idea pops up that Annie and T should get pregnant so the trio can share in their bliss together. Annie agrees, but with only slightly more enthusiasm than she has for wanting a tattoo. While waiting for tattoo artist Antwoine (LeRoy McClain) to make his appearance, the girls giggle and talk about their idea. Annie quickly establishes she has a little more going for herself than wanting to register with her friends at a baby store or discuss why she wants a ladybug tattoo. In everything that T says, Annie corrects her mispronunciations. “A nitial or initial?” Annie asks. After getting Annie’s tattoo, the girls plan for her to unite with Malik (J. MalloryMcCree). He shows initial

attraction, but his idea to ease into a relationship isn’t want Annie has in mind. Tony Award-winner Tonya Pinkins is excellent as Annie’s tough, single mom trying to keep her job. She’s somewhat out of touch with her daughter who longs for a family (no dad but two unseen brothers) to play games with and have family night. Annie is even thinking
about college — far from her friends’ plan for the three of them to play mommy together — or her mother’s hard line that college is not part of their world. When Keera, a bright, Bible-minded girl comes into her life, Annie’s world goes from gray to slightly rosy. Keera stands up to T’s bullying and eventually teaches Annie to have her own thoughts, think outside
the box, and go for what she really wants. “Milk Like Sugar” has excellent performances and inventive set changes. Greenidge layered her play with some nice metaphors, including when Annie reveals the reason for the title while talking to Malik: “We supposed to be drinking real milk, ’stead we fed that powered kind that looks like sugar.”
North Coast opens season 30 with sidesplitting ‘Lend Me a Tenor’ Let’s Review
By diana Saenger
The slam, slam, slamming of doors has never been funnier than in North Coast Repertory Theatre’s (NCRT) current production “Lend Me A Tenor.” Think the Three Stooges chasing themselves through a hotel room or Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell in an absurd farce, and that’s the pace of this thoroughly hilarious show. The show opens in the living room of a hotel suite in Cleveland, Ohio were sits Maggie (Courtney Corey) and Max (Christopher M. Williams). It’s obvious the two are involved, but Maggie is gushing about Tito (Bernard X. Kopsho), a famous Italian opera tenor coming to their town to star as Othello in a benefit performance. Maggie, who met Tito once before, claims to Max that she needs to have a fling before she settles down. She wants to hear bells when she kisses the right man. Williams puts on one of the best snit-fits I’ve seen on stage in his distress over Maggie’s statements. That’s about the tamest moment
Max fools the cast as ‘Tito,’ from left, Ted Barton, albert Park, Courtney Corey, Jill drexler and Christopher M. Williams. aaron rumley in this winner of three Tony Awards. Entering the living room next is a frazzled Saunders (Ted Barton), Maggie’s father and the man in charge of handling Tito who is, so far, a no-show. Saunders insists that guy-Friday Max must sing the opera in disguise and save the show, and Max is about to
have another meltdown until Tito and his fiery wife Maria (Jessica John) show up. From this moment on nothing is predictable and there’s barely a minute when the audience is not roaring. Obviously it’s Tito’s strong romantic voice (not his portly physique) that enthralls women to
fall at his feet. Coming in and out of those slamming doors and ducking into closets and bathrooms to avoid each other include Maggie, singer Diana (Jacque Wilke), and the opera show manager Julia (Jill Drexler). Maria, tired of women hiding in his closets, tells tenor Tito in her Italian accent, “Someday you gonna wake up in bed and you gonna be a soprano!” Then she abruptly leaves the suite. When Tito insists he must sleep before the evening’s concert, Max helps him by pouring his drinks. Hours later, Tito will not wake up, and a distraught Max has to tell Saunders that Tito is dead. Barton portrays the overwrought Saunders perfectly, never far from a heart attack and creating a tension that can be felt in the back row. Williams easily takes Max through several traumas, and quickly works his way out of one situation into another, all with outrageous gestures. Corey is adorable in her “innocent” pursuit of a fling with Tito and trying to avoid Max and her father. Her facial expressions intensify every evolving emotion.

He, too, is infatuated with Tito and does all he can to intrude into the hotel room to get a picture and autograph of the tenor. Director Matthew Wiener has raised “Lend Me A Tenor” far off the written page. It’s a spectacular screwball comedy that will have patrons smiling long after they’ve left the theater.

‘Roots of reeds’ exhibit comes to Carlsbad’s Museum of Making Music By Lonnie Burstein Hewitt Founded in 1998 by the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM), Carlsbad’s Museum of Making Music opened in March 2000, giving visitors a chance to interact with some of the instruments that helped shape American popular music. It welcomes 30,000 visitors a year, while offering a variety of workshops and concerts. Recently closed for two months of renovation, the museum’s grand re-opening on Aug. 20 revealed a brighter, more spacious setting with more interactivity than ever, and found visitors of all ages exploring the exhibits and making music of their own. “Our philosophy is allowing people to play real instruments, not dumbeddown versions,” said MoMM Education Manager Jillian Jepsen. At the opening, volunteer Terry Chaffee was demo-ing a Loar mandolin, and giving quickie lessons to anyone in sight. “I love doing this,” he said. “I show folks a cou-

ple of chords and they’re on top of the world.” The real highlight is the new Innovation Studio, where everyone can play ... and they do. Even if you manage to resist trying out the instruments, you’ll be hooked by the “Global Spotlight,” a giant touch-sensitive digital map featuring the music of 15 countries — tap on a region, and you can hear its traditional music; another tap brings you a clip of contemporary sounds. More countries will be added as time goes by. According to Jepsen, who was also project manager for the renovation, the map is a new concept, developed with Academy Studios, a de-

sign firm in Novato. “We wanted to give visitors a glimpse of world music in a contemporary way that was friendly to all ages,” she said. “We divided the music into two categories, Echo and Evolution, representing where music came from and where it has gone. I was really happy with how it turned out and visitors seem to really enjoy it.” In conjunction with “Roots of Reeds,” a new temporary exhibit showcasing traditional reed instruments from the Middle and Far East and tracing their evolution into modern instruments, the museum will have a number of special
events, featuring reed-playing virtuosos. On Sept. 18, James Cotton, Grammy award-winning master of the blues harmonica, will perform with his long-time band member, guitar player/singer Tom Holland. Cotton, who has appeared with blues legends B.B. King and Muddy Waters, has been performing for more than 60 of his 76 years, and has been called “the greatest living blues harmonica player.” There will be a reception before the concert, and art curator Tatiana Sizonenko will be available to talk and answer questions about the reeds exhibit.

SHEBA is a beautiful Shepherd mix who was relinquished to the Humane Society because her owner was to be placed into the care of a hospital. Sheba lost her closest canine companion at the same time, a dog she’d spent her entire life with. With the combined loss of her owner and best canine friend, Sheba was very depressed and would not get up to go for walks or interact with anyone at the Humane Society. That’s when we introduced her to RANGER, another senior Shepherd mix who came to us as a stray. Sheba actually got up and wagged her tail. They now sleep in the same kennel and spend all their time together and are looking for a loving home as a bonded pair. They are gentle, sweet and mellow. In a sense, Ranger and Sheba fell into love. They have bettered each other and are affectionate. They will do best in a home with older children. Their bonded adoption fee, thanks to our Fall Into Love Promotion, is just $25! This includes their spay and neuter,

Coldwell Banker agents donate backpacks to area children A group of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Realtors, specializing in University City, were the recent sponsors of their fifth annual Backpack Drive, donating and collecting backpacks along with assorted school supplies for homeless and foster children covered under the Office for Children and Youth in Transition, part of the San Diego Unified School District. The agents involved in the community fundraiser included Katie Dunahoo, June Kubli, Lydia Hwang Vosovic, Kathleen Williams, John Schindel, Venzel Hammershaimb, Alicia Malo, Carol Uribe, John and Sandy Bassler, and Sue Silva. Collectively, they worked to organize the event at Standley Park in August. The agents said they were thrilled with the amount of community support from people of all ages — families even took their children shopping so their kids could select the items to donate. In the end, agents delivered a truckload of wonderful items to the school district drop-off location for students returning to school. “I am very proud of our agents’ efforts and success with the backpack collection,” said Jeff Nunn, office manager of Coldwell Banker La Jolla. “I love that they are helping children get a good start with the school year during a time when education funding and budgets have been minimized.”
