BY PAT SHERMAN With fresh energy and leadership at the helm — and a bevvy of A-list events and 50 percent more screenings — San Diego Film Festival (SDFF) organizers are upping the ante for 2012 and beyond. A primary component of SDFF’s growth strategy is the addition of La Jolla as a venue for several of its top screenings, including “Quartet,” actor Dustin Hoffman’s directorial debut, and an opening night appearance by legendary filmmaker Gus Van Sant (“Milk,” “My Own Private Idaho”), who will be honored with a career retrospective and a screening of See Film Festival, A8

Editor’s note: This report is the first in a two-part series chronicling an international workshop on sea-level rise, held at UC San Diego last week. Leading climate scientists and public-policy experts shared research findings and formulated strategies to combat and adapt to projected short- and longterm rises in sea level. Part 2, to be published in the Sept. 27 issue, examines the measures coastal cities around the world are already adopting.

By Lynne Friedmann Sea level is on the rise and demands the attention of policymakers and urban planners to identify and set

in motion specific, achievable actions over the next several years to mitigate or adapt to a rise in sea level over the next 300 years of between 2.4 and 5 meters (8 and 16 feet), based on current understanding and circumstances. This was the message of the International Workshop on Coastal Cities, Climate Change, and Sea-Level Rise, held Sept. 5-7, on the UC San Diego campus where representatives from 18 leading research institutes — members of the Association of Pacific Rim Universities (APRU) and a number of non-government organizations — explored ways of

UC San Diego hosted experts from around the world for the International Workshop on Coastal Cities, Climate Change, and Sea-Level Rise. Lynne Friedmann improving cooperation among academics, government officials, and policymakers to protect human lives and economic resources. It is not often that an issue

brings together climate scientists, economists, architects, urban planners, political scientists, and international relations experts. But, that’s exactly

who was in the room, motivated to find solutions to the potentially catastrophic effects of sea-level rise on 200 million people and trillions of dollars of coastal assets ($100 billion alone in California). The first day of the meeting provided clear and coherent presentations of the latest research outcomes on climate change at different locations around the world. “The conclusion is that climate change and local sea-level rise is highly variable,” said Jim Falk, Honorary Professorial Fellow in the University of Melbourne

Muirlands students benefit from teacher’s sense of wonder By Kathy Day After 26 years as a teacher, Mark Heinze says he loves that he’s still full of wonder. “I’m still interested in the littlest things around me. … I like to share my wonder,” the Muirlands Middle School world history teacher said in a Sept. 11 interview. And his sharing isn’t contained to the school year. As soon as classes finish in the spring, he dons his beach gear and takes to the waves as an instructor with the Menhune Surf Camp. Heinze, a California native, moved to Santa Barbara when he was in fifth grade. “That’s when I realized natural beauty,” he said, remembering the surf, beaches and blue skies. “I thought I’d died and gone to heaven.” He liked the area so much that he stayed for college, graduating from UC Santa Barbara with a degree in history and political science. But because UCSB didn’t allow students to complete their master’s in the same subject as their undergrad degree, he headed south to San Diego State, with becoming a lawyer as part of his plan. But that career path shifted when he was helping a girlfriend with a research project on international student test scores. As he gathered data with her, he said, he began to realize something about himself. “I was very patriotic,” he said. “I figured I could help my country better by helping the next generation rather than by prosecuting criminals.”

Mark Heinze poses with some of the students he teaches at Menehune Surf Camp. So he switched directions and got his credential, landing his first job at mid-year when a teacher in a class for gifted children quit, just as he finished school. “The parents were furious,” he said. “It was trial by fire, but at the end of the year, they petitioned to keep me.” The end of the year also meant no paychecks until fall, so he answered a job posting at the Peninsula YMCA for a surf instruc-

tor. Armed with a school bus driver’s license and a lifetime of surfing experience, he landed the job and loved it. Each summer for 16 years he returned to the Y program, occasionally running into former students who told him,“You were our babysitter and our savior.” For the last eight years, he’s taught at Hike, Bike, Kayak’s Menehune Surf Camps at La Jolla Shores. Through the years his stu-

dents have included his son Greg, now 22, and daughter, Kristin, now 20. Since that first year in the classroom, Heinze has also taught fifth, sixth and seventh grades — always in GATE (Gifted and Talented Students) classes. He’s been at Muirlands for about 12 years, where this year he’s teaching sixth and seventh grade world history, and also has taught in Clairemont and Del Cerro. “I started teaching early and so I still have a lot of years in me,” he noted. He has received numerous honors, including San Diego City Schools Mid-Level Teacher of the Year (1996-97), which led to a County Teacher of the Year title. In 1998, he was one of the state’s top 10 teachers and a Wal-Mart Teacher of the year. In 2000, he was runner-up in the Light’s Best of La Jolla category for Mid-Level Teacher. He also has had the reward of former students telling him he made a difference in their lives. Even with all his recognition, Heinze says, “The only thing that matters is the next day’s lessons.” He works very hard to create lessons that are “new and fresh,” he said. While many teachers save files and plans from year to year so they can reuse lessons, Heinze said he starts over each year because “the students change; things change.” That makes for some long days. He arrives

FROM SEA LEVELS, A1 (Australia) School of Land and Environment and director of climate change research for APRU. “This calls for needs assessment city by city, region by region.â€? Jeff Severinghaus, professor of geosciences at Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) at UCSD, said, “The Earth is like a waterbed, when you ‘step’ on it in one place, it rises in another.â€? Accounting for sea-level rise differences are factors such as wave and storm surge, El NiĂąo climate patterns, topography, land subsidence, or a rise in land elevation (as can occur in highly seismic areas of California). Much focus in recent years has been on the contribution of melting polar ice to sea-level rise. “Melting itself is not a climate change (affect),â€? said Helen Fricker, professor, Cecil H. and Ida M. Green Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics, at SIO. “Melting of ice is normal.â€? The problem is that current ice melting is faster than has occurred historically. When the margins of ice shelves thin, glaciers behind them respond to gravity and are pulled to the sea. Most ice-shelf thinning is related to warm ocean currents. But it’s only been recently that melting ice has made a contribution to rising sealevel rise. “In the past 50 years, rising sea-

level rise has been due to warmer oceans,� said David W. Pierce, a programmer analyst in the SIO Division of Climate, Atmospheric Science and Physical Oceanography. “Like most fluids, seawater expands when it becomes warmer, contributing to an increase in sea level,� said Pierce. This warming effect, alone, is estimated to be responsible for more than half of the current rate of sea-level rise observed by researchers. The stakes are high when it comes to instituting mitigation or adaptation policy relative to sealevel rise. More than half the world’s largest cities are coastal ports. Of these, more than 130 port cities are at increasing risk from severe

storm-surge flooding, damage from high storm winds, rising and warming global seas, and local land subsidence, according to a study by the Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development. “Forty-nine of these cities are on the Pacific Rim,� said Trevor Davies, Pro-Vice-Chancellor, University of East Anglia (UK), and director of the Fudan Tyndall Center, Fudan University (China). “Of the top 20 cities identified, Asia has the largest overall exposure.� Workshop sponsors were the Association of Pacific Rim Universities (APRU), whose aim is to foster cooperation in education research, and enterprise thereby contributing to the economic, scientific, and cul-

tural advancement in the Pacific Rim; USC Marshall School of Business Administration, and the Sustainability Solutions Institute (UCSD). “University presidents shape the research focus at their institutions,� said workshop organizer David Woodruff, director of the Sustainability Solutions Institute (UCSD). Therefore, a major goal of the gathering is how to motivate universities to leverage action against climate change and its effects. “There will be big changes in the next 300 years, but we only have 30 years to plan and mitigate,� said Woodruff. “Governments should plan for 100 years of inevitable sealevel rise, even if greenhouse gas levels are reduced.�

Planning association asks Scripps to halt construction of project obscuring coastal views going to be protected,” Fitzgerald said. “I was in the audience … when that project was presented to us,” Allen added. “I remember the graphics they presented to show that the building would not block views from automobiles.” Allen said an initial environmental impact report also stated that no significant ocean views would be blocked and no significant adverse effects to aesthetics would occur as a result of the project.

Some residents say the Ecosystem Sensing, Observation and Modeling Laboratory (MESOM), under construction at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, off La Jolla Scenic Drive, is robbing the community of coastal views. Pat Sherman By Pat Sherman During the Sept. 6 meeting of the La Jolla Community Planning Association (CPA), John Beaver, a 30-year-resident of La Jolla, said a laboratory currently under construction at Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) is robbing the community of coastal views and blighting the coastline. The $26.5 million project, SIO’s Marine Ecosystem Sensing, Observation and Modeling Laboratory (MESOM), will be used for research and education related to marine ecosystems and climate change. The roughly 40,000-square-foot building is located off La Jolla Shores Drive, across from the recently completed Southwest Fisheries Science Center building. “How outrageous of the director of the SIO and the staff to so egregiously destroy a precious site,” said Beaver, reading aloud from his letter, published that day in the La Jolla Light. “It looks as though it’s too late to stop the construction, but SIO should be faulted forever for lack of community citizenship.” At the urging of Beaver and other CPA trustees, the CPA board voted to take emergency action to have its president draft a letter to the California Coast Commission, which approved the project in April 2011, and to UC San Diego Chancellor Pradeep Khosla, requesting that construction be suspended. The CPA is seeking an explanation for what its trustees view as a potential violation of the terms of the project’s mitigated negative declaration, a study prepared to determine whether a project may have any significant adverse environmental impacts.

After making initial contact with SIO, Beaver said he was told that the organization’s California Coastal Commission permit was contingent upon SIO opening up the view corridor in adjacent areas by trimming or removing trees. “I’ve been driving by there for 30 years and I saw right through those trees,” Beaver said, noting that UC San Diego and SIO officials also promised “not to build a building like this again in the future. “Well, the future is here,” Beaver said. “The view is gone, as of today. Thank you Scripps Institution of Oceanography.” Both the CPA and the La Jolla Shores Association reviewed the MESOM project during the past few years. CPA trustees Jim Fitzgerald and Dan Allen said they both recalled when the project came before the CPA. “We as a community were assured that those views were

Pricing your Home While there are many factors that contribute to the successful sale of a home, the importance of determining the correct price right from the beginning cannot be underestimated. Interest and enthusiasm for your home will be strongest when it first appears on the market. If your property is competitively priced and compares favorable to similar listings, you will attract genuine buyers. An unrealistically high list price will discourage early buyers, who will wait for you to reduce your price before making an offer. An experienced real estate agent will work with you to identify the best price possible for your home ensuring an easier and faster sale and thereby reducing carrying costs, mortgage payments, ownership expense, and overall stress. Your agent will evaluate comparable homes in the neighborhood to determine the market value of your property. When a home is reasonably priced, buyers will bid aggressively rather than run the risk of losing the property. A fair price at the beginning ensures satisfaction at the end.

From Film Festival, A1 his 1997 drama, “Good Will Hunting” (starring Matt Damon, Robin Williams and Ben Affleck). “La Jolla’s inclusion was really important,” said the festival’s new board president, Kevin Leap, noting that screenings will now be split between the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (MCASD) in La Jolla and Reading Theater in the Gaslamp, where the festival has been based for years. “There are a lot of people in North County, La Jolla included, that just won’t go to the Gaslamp,” Leap said. “La Jolla has such a high propensity for supporting the arts that we wanted to make it as easy as possible for La Jollans (to attend).” This year’s festival, Sept. 26-30, includes 112 films, documentaries and shorts, including 11 world premieres and 16 West Coast premieres — all jury-selected from 1,300 submissions. Tickets for individual movies are $14 presale and $16 at the door. Passes range from $75 for an entire day of screenings to $500 for a VIP festival pass granting access to all four days of screenings, events, and panels. Leap said organizers wanted to hold their “most prestigious event,” the Van Sant tribute, in La Jolla. “He is the embodiment of what an independent filmmaker begins as and can become,” Leap said. “He makes films for the sake of beauty and art. It’s not 10,000 explosions and people flying across the screen; it’s independent film at its highest level.” A VIP cocktail reception with Van Sant will be at 5 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 27 at MCASD, followed by a 30-minute film retrospective and “Good Will Hunting” at 7 p.m. in Sherwood Auditorium. Tickets to the cocktail reception are $125, or admission is free with purchase of a VIP pass. Leap said festival organizers envision the SDFF evolving into “Toronto West.” The Toronto International Film Festival (held this year Sept. 6-16) draws more than

VIP Lounge (21+) ■ Where: Roppongi, 875 Prospect St. ■ When: Sept 28-29, 5-9 p.m. 250,000 attendees — numbers Leap feels SDFF could eventually achieve, given the city’s proximity to Hollywood, as well as its plethora of hotels, restaurants and attractions. The SDFF board consulted Sundance Film Festival organizers, as well as those with festivals in Toronto, Tribeca, Napa, Aspen, Palm Springs and Santa Barbara to gain insight on growing SDFF from last year’s attendance of about 8,000 to an internationally acclaimed festival drawing 100,000 film lovers. Leap said the SDFF board is anticipating 25,000 attendees this year. “Palm Springs does 120,000 people and Santa Barbara does 80,000. There’s no reason that we can’t do at least that,” he said. More La Jolla film screenings Another La Jolla highlight is Dustin Hoffman’s “Quartet,” 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 29 in Sherwood Auditorium. The film, which received rave reviews earlier this month at the Toronto International Film Festival, chronicles the residents of a home for retired opera singers.

www.lajollalight.com From Film Festival, A8 makes his directorial debut at SDFF, with the short film “Please, Alfonso.” It screens 7:30 p.m. Sept. 28 at Reading Theater. “His film was spot-on, just wonderful and charming,” said Del Mar-based filmmaker and SDFF board Vice-president Tonya Mantooth. “It was one of the standouts for me.” Another film that rose to the top for Mantooth was the thriller “Red Line.” Directed by Robert Kirbyson, it follows a group of Los Angeles subway passengers in the wake of a subterranean terrorist bombing. The set in which 90 percent of the action takes place was built from reclaimed wood and junkyard parts on a small stage on the campus of John Paul the Great Catholic University in Scripps Ranch. The cast includes San Diegan Jamie Nieto, a two-time U.S. Olympian who recently returned from the London games, where he placed 6th in the high jump. “He filmed it in San Diego and used San Diego crews,” Mantooth said. “It has fabulous production values. … This truly is an independent filmmaker who worked on an obviously tight budget and really brought a lot to the screen.” “Red Line” screens 6 p.m. Sept. 29 in San Diego and at 5:30 p.m. Sept. 30 in La Jolla. Reel World Close to 100 film aficionados and a final jury of industry professionals viewed submissions from 57 countries, including Turkey, Brazil, Japan and Palestine. “We had some great foreign films,” Mantooth said. “That was probably one of the toughest categories to pare down, but we have wonderful international representation.”

film, showing Sept. 28, 8:30 p.m. in the Gaslamp, sold out during this year’s Latino film fest. “We’re partnering with them to bring it back,” Mantooth said. “It was a really impactful documentary and, frankly, I felt like everybody needed to see it.”

‘Red Line,’ 5:30 p.m. Sept. 30 at Museum of Contemporary Art, La Jolla.

‘Frankie Goes Boom,’ 8 p.m. Sept. 29 at Museum of Contemporary Art, La Jolla.

‘Quartet,’ 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 29 at Museum of Contemporary Art, La Jolla.

‘The Courageous Heart of Irena Sendler,’ 4 p.m. Sept. 29 at MCASD, La Jolla.

Though submissions had to be produced in 2011, a few exceptions were made for films with particular gravitas, Mantooth said, including 2009’s “The Courageous Heart of Irena Sendler,” starring Academy Awardwinning actress Anna Paquin (“The Piano,” “True Blood”). The historical drama tells the story of a Polish woman who helped smuggle as many as 2,500 Jewish children out of a Warsaw ghetto during the Holocaust. It screens 4 p.m. Sept. 29 in La Jolla.

“The filmmaker’s going to be here and in the next day or so we’ll find out if Anna Paquin’s schedule will allow her to attend,” Mantooth said. “She’s also in a film short playing down in the Gaslamp, so she’s very eager to attend.” Another film, which screened at this year’s San Diego Latino Film Festival, is the documentary, “Reportero,” which explores the issue of Mexican journalists being targeted for murder by drug cartels. The

Youth opportunities Of the many panels and workshops offered this year is “Connect,” which introduces budding high school auteurs to top film industry professionals for a day of workshops and networking. Each year, 250 of the most promising and enthusiastic film students are handpicked to attend. This year the young actors from the hit TV show “Modern Family” will participate in the panel. “They’re so at the top of the celebrity list right now,” Leap said. “We’re just excited to have them.” “Fame High,” which screens 2 p.m. Sept. 29 in La Jolla, is the follow-up to Scott Hamilton Kennedy’s Academy Awardnominated documentary, “The Garden.” “It chronicles a group of high school students who are really going down that path to being musicians, dancers and actors — the highs and the lows of it,” Mantooth said. “It’s a really wonderful glimpse into their lives and their struggles and successes.” The film will be accompanied by a mini master class on the art of storytelling, led by Kennedy. “He’s so passionate about helping kids move forward in their careers,” she said. “We’re really wanting to reach out to the performing arts students here in La Jolla and San Diego to be exposed to that.”

From Teacher, A3 at Muirlands each day about 6:30 a.m. to get ready for the students who show up at 7:30. “I use that time to make sure I’m ready to go,” he said. And during lunch, he gets a sort of a respite from the 12- and 13-year-olds, although often he’s revising a lesson “you thought was perfect, altering it for a later class.” After school there often are meetings with parents and staff before he heads home at 4 p.m. (Oh and meetings with the Muirlands surf team that he advises add to his busy days, too.) When he gets home Heinze starts all over again, planning for another day. In his spare time, he enjoys tropical gardening and raises rare palms, cycads and plumerias at his Clairemont home. Heinze’s sense of wonder reaches around the world. A fellow of Atlantik-Brucke (Atlantic Bridge), a nonprofit which promotes cultural understanding, he spent time in Germany funded by the organization. He also traveled Japan as a chaperone for a group of students whose parents were Kyocera employees. “Seeing how American kids and I benefitted so much from our brief trip, I sort of reversed it and hosted two Japanese kids in our home. Later, we hosted a series of European students,” he said via e-mail. “My own kids learned to value and have tolerance for different customs and cultures.” His own respect for tolerance has been demonstrated through work with the Southern Poverty Law Center, which has his name on a “Wall of Tolerance” in

Mark Heinze in his classroom at Muirlands Middle School in La Jolla. Montgomery, Ala. But perhaps most telling is a description he gave of the kind of teacher he aspires to be: “To know that a seventh-grade teacher of mine was highly respected by his peers and would give rather intellectual talks to the faculty and yet would spend lunches playing ball or even marbles in the dust with the students — that is the kind of teacher I want to be, one who is on the cutting edge of innovation and teaching in the classroom, but also connected to the students at their level.”

Lightner to assemble officials to solve Cove stench problem By Pat Sherman District 1 City Councilwoman Sherri Lightner made the rounds of La Jolla’s community advisory group meetings this month, offering updates on issues key to The Village. Chief among them was the pervasive odor emanating from La Jolla Cove area, caused by a buildup of bird guano and marine mammal excrement on the bluff. Lightner said within the next few weeks her office will schedule a meeting with representatives from government agencies with a stake in the issue, as well as a company whose nontoxic, biodegradable product some have suggested using to rid the rocks of their stench. They include San Diego’s Park and Recreation Sherri Lightner department, the California Coastal Commission, the California Regional Water Quality Control Board and Costa Mesa-based Bio-Organic Catalyst. Though several of the agencies previously said responsibility for the reek — and management of the bluff — was not in their purview, Lightner said she confirmed this month that the bluff is under the jurisdiction of the California Coastal Commission. “All we need to do now is get the Coastal Commission and the Regional Water Quality Control Board’s approval,” Lightner said during the Sept. 6 meeting of the La Jolla Community Planning Association (CPA). Though Bio-Organic Catalyst’s product, EcoSystem Plus, has been approved for use in an East Coast river, nothing similar to it has been approved for use on the West Coast, she said. “They (East Coast agencies) don’t have quite the protective requirements that California does, (but) we have a very good group of people working on this,” Lightner said, noting that the city or community members would first need to obtain a permit from the California Coastal Commission to spray the rocks. “We make progress every week. We’re not taking too many steps backward.” CPA trustee Fran Zimmerman asked why San Diego firefighters couldn’t make “periodic runs past that area and spray the rocks with water blasts, rather than chemicals.” “You can’t have fire trucks just do that; we have regulations for storm water and best management practices,” Lightner said. “If we were to do that, we’d be in for some heavy-duty fines.” Zimmerman pressed: “There’s no possibility of a waiver or exemption or mercy based on the amount of community fallout from the present condition?” “We can add that to our list,” Lightner said. “When we go see the Coastal Commission, since this is under their jurisdiction, maybe they’d be amenable to having a water truck.” During the Sept. 12 meeting of the La Jolla

Village Merchants Association (LJVMA), the organization discussed the status of its resolution beseeching government officials to get the odor problem under control. The letter opines that it is the government’s responsibility to “eliminate the odor safely, effectively and expeditiously, ... not primarily that of the La Jolla business community.” “It appears to be a simple problem with a simple solution, but it’s apparently not, involving various agencies,” LJVMA trustee Tom Brady said. La Jolla Parks and Beaches, Inc. Chairman Patrick Ahern said the city probably would not be amenable to paying for the odor eradication. “We do have some people coming up with some money, and the solution is interesting,” Ahern said. La Jolla attorney Mark Evans noted that BioOrganic Catalyst’s product, which reduces the excrement to its key organic compounds, has been found to be harmless to plant and animal life, and has received a permit from a New York state agency similar to California’s Regional Water Quality Control Board for discharge into a trout-bearing river. “It’s been used around the country in both industrial and municipal waste water (applications),” he said, noting that the product would likely cost around $10,000 a year if used on a regular basis. “The problem is getting government officials to approve it,” Evans said, nothing the “inevitable inertia” of government bureaucracy. “Nobody wants to be the first to do something that hasn’t been done in California on rocks near the ocean.” “We’ll be the first,” Lightner maintained. “We’re taking care of bringing all the parties to the same table.” n Post office resolution headed to City Council Lightner also said she also would send a resolution to her colleagues on the San Diego City Council, seeking their signatures in support of Congresswoman Susan Davis’ Community Post Office Relocation Act. The legislation would allow a community nonprofit, such as the La Jolla Historical Society, the initial opportunity to purchase its community post office and then lease all or part of the space back to the United States Postal Service. The resolution should come before the city council in October. n Commission will hear seal rope issue Sept. 27 The San Diego Planning Commission is set to consider an appeal of the city’s earlier approval of a Site Development Permit to install and maintain a year-round rope barrier at The Children’s Pool in La Jolla. The barrier is intended as a buffer between humans and seals. City staff has recommended denying the appeal (and allowing the year-round rope). The meeting will be at 8:30 a.m. Sept. 27 in San Diego City Council chambers, 202 C Street, 12th floor. The California Coastal Commission approved a permit for the year-round barrier during its July meeting. The city currently keeps the rope barrier up only during the winter-spring pupping season.

www.lajollalight.com From Scripps, A7 Association (LJSA), Tim Lucas also raised the issue, noting CPA’s recent action. “As you walk closer to the building, the view is totally obstructed,” he said, noting that an embankment added by SIO and untrimmed trees partially obscured the view for decades. LJSA trustee Janie Emerson also said that after driving by the site recently, she feels the development “is not what was presented to us.” UC San Diego Principal Community Planner, Anu Delouri, who was in attendance to give her regular report, confirmed that the university had received the CPA’s letter, dated Sept. 10. She said no new drawings or plans were generated that deviated from what the CPA and LJSA were shown, in terms of the building’s height. “Everything is still per plan,” she said, noting initial concessions that were made to accommodate the advisory groups’ concerns, such as removing some stacks from the top of the building and moving the building a little to the southeast.

LA JOLLA LIGHT - september 20, 2012 - Page A17

She said tree trimming the California Coastal Commission required to mitigate the loss of views from the building was completed Sept. 11. “Yes, there is a building, and it does protrude up,” Delouri said. “I’m not saying you don’t have grounds for a complaint, (but) nowhere did we say that it won’t impact views.” LJSA trustee Mary Coakley Munk said that when the project was first presented to the LJSA, trustees should have requested story poles, or three-dimensional, full-scale, silhouette structures outlining the location, bulk and mass that a proposed building will occupy on a site. “I think when presentations are made, they have to be a little more clear and a little more accurate,” Emerson added. “I’ll just leave it at that.” In the end, LJSA trustees decided to defer action on the project to the CPA. Delouri said she will gather more information for a fuller presentation on the project’s status during the Oct. 4 CPA meeting at La Jolla Rec Center. Meanwhile, SIO and UC San Diego officials are investigating further, she said.

I

had the opportunity to be present as San Diego’s two mayoral candidates, Carl DeMaio and Bob Filner, met in a debate on Sept. 7 at La Jolla Country Day School. The debate was co-sponsored by the City Club and the National Conflict Resolution Center (NCRC). The people asking questions included students from the Preuss School and La Jolla Country Day High School. The students’ focus was for the future of San Diego. Thorough research and in a strong desire to understand the issues, tough questions were posed. The debate was moderated by Steve Dinkin, president of NCRC, based in San Diego. My interest in the debate was to see how the two candidates behaved toward one another. Were they going to be civil or not? This debate, a symbol of the political discourse flooding our country right now, was a wonderful opportunity for the candidates to model the skills of vigorously

arguing the issues, right and wrong, rather than good and bad, and finding ways to disagree without demonizing. Since the beginning of time, politics has always been about rigorous debate and passionate arguments. That’s not incivility, that’s politics. I am not sure if it was because Steve Dinkin from NCRC began by setting a tone of civility, or if it was the presence of the high school students, that helped to keep what could have become ugly, aggressive rhetoric under control. I noticed how hard it was at times for the candidates, but they persisted and managed well for the most part. So, I began to wonder: is there a way for the public, the audience, the voters, to find a way to insist on civil dialogue from those seeking office? Why do we tolerate divisive language? Do we have a power that we don’t use effectively for the good of politics, for the empowerment of the candidates and for the betterment of all the citizens of our great country? Bill Clinton commented on civility in his remarks at the Democratic National Convention this year when he said: “When times are tough and people are frustrated and angry and hurting and uncertain, the politics of constant conflict may be good, but what is good politics does not necessarily work in the real world.

Here’s the ‘true’ history of the sluicegates In response to the letter by Patricia Weber in the Sept.13 issue, I am writing to clear any misunderstandings about my letter on opening the sluice gates at the Children’s Pool, which was published in an earlier issue. The wall was designed by Mr. Savage, a master of his craft, as I stated, and not Irving Gill, who built most of the amazing houses and community properties in La Jolla. And yes, the gates were designed to let the ocean in and the sand out, as there had always been a flow of ocean water in and out at the site before the wall. The wall could not have been built without the sluiceways, according to Mr. Savage. At that time, there were no seals at the beach, the concept was only to keep the pool, a pool, and not let the sand build up and create a hill. The goal was to have a pool that small children could walk into and not be afraid of the ocean, but become friends with it, and soon be able to swim out into it as generations of La Jollans had done before. The story of one or two children being pulled through the wall never happened! No child ever drowned or was strained through the wall. I searched for years on either side of this date and never found any information to support this urban legend. No one ever died in the gates, at the gates, or

San Diego mayoral candidates Carl DeMaio (left) and Bob Filner (far right) debate the issues at La Jolla Country Day School. FILE What works in the real world is cooperation.” Could we, the people, consider a zero tolerance policy for dismissive, intolerant attitudes, hostility, negativity and demonizing by politicians trying to further their own goals? It will be interesting to see what happens in future debates, with different moderators, and without the students. As these candidates seek our trust, we look to them to make wise, balanced, fair decisions for the future of our communities. I ask you to join me in endorsing the idea of cooperation and civil dialogue. Let us begin to

Our Readers write got sucked through the gates. The city just concreted-up the gates and now there is nothing to open without a drill. I believe the city did this so as to not have to deal with the maintenance, which they agreed to do in 1931. The community of La Jolla has asked the city for years to break open a hole in the wall to get rid of the sand. We want the city to reinstate the site as a pool for children, to get rid of years of seal poop and buried dead seals, and to clean the sand. The city refuses to do anything! This is yet one more reason we need to become our own city! The City of San Diego refuses to hear us and to honor their promise to maintain the Children’s Pool as promised to our Godmother Ellen Browning Scripps. If it were not for her, San Diego would never be what it is today. La Jolla should be respected as a community, not rejected. Melinda Merryweather La Jolla

More sluicegate history Ms. Weber’s suggestion to open the sluice gates of the Children’s Pool is a good idea. It is being pursued by a group of individuals attempting to return the Children’s Pool to joint use. However, Ms. Weber unintentionally

challenge all of our politicians to stay within the guidelines of civil discourse. San Diego deserves civility in our Mayor and we should insist upon it. The citizens of the United States deserve civility in all of our public leaders, and we should not accept anything less! My sincere compliments to the City Club, the students of La Jolla Country Day School and the Preuss School, as well as the National Conflict Resolution Center and, most importantly, Bob Filner and Carl DeMaio for an informative and very civil debate. You see it can be done and the voters appreciate and deserve it.

perpetuates two “Urban Legends.” First, construction records clearly show that the gates were closed two months before the Children’s Pool dedication because they were too efficient. Too little sand was retained within the confines of the breakwater. The gates were closed to promote sand accumulation for a beach. Second, and more importantly, there is no evidence that anyone, not children, not adults, was ever killed by being pulled through the sluice gates. I, as well as a number of others, have looked through the local papers, including the Light and its predecessor. If children were, in fact, killed it would have been big news. As far as we can determine this ever occurred. David W. Valentine, Ph.D. La Jolla

Police should know about the speedway in town There is a stretch of road in La Jolla — the cross street of Torrey Pines and Almhurst at UCSD — and although there is a light at Genesse that is Photo Record, I don’t think the police are aware that this stretch of road is basically a motorcycle speedway.

Regarding regulating oversized vehicles parked in neighborhoods, isn’t this lovely in front of a million-dollar-plus house on Westbourne St.? Stored year-round here and used for one week of the year. Also, this house is rented to multi-families. Guess that’s legal in La Jolla, too! Feel free to publish this picture in The Light. Robert Donald La Jolla Editor’s note: Parking on public streets and alleys is regulated by the San Diego Municipal Code and the California Vehicle Code. To report illegal parking in your neighborhood, call (619) 531-2000. Read more at http://www.sandiego. gov/parking/enforcement/ Here is an excerpt, pertaining to neighborhoods: Parking Laws: The following provisions apply whether or not there are signs or curb markings present: • No vehicle may be parked continuously at one location on any public roadway for more than 72 hours. • Parking is prohibited in alleys, except for the purpose of actively unloading goods or passengers, unless the alley is specifically designated as an alley parking zone. • Parking of heavy duty commercial vehicles is prohibited in residential areas, unless the vehicle is loading or unloading goods or has a service call in the immediate vicinity. • Parking unattached semi-trailers or auxiliary dollies on any street is prohibited except while loading/unloading (camp or utility trailers not included). • Parking is prohibited in an intersection or a crosswalk, within 15 feet of a fire station driveway or fire hydrant, in front of a public or private driveway, on a sidewalk or parkway, on the roadway side of a parked vehicle (double parking), in a bus stop, in a tunnel, upon a bridge (unless otherwise posted) or in such a manner that obstructs the free use of the street. • Parking is prohibited in front of a public or private driveway (even your own driveway). • Wheel cramping is required on all grades over 3% (hills) with or without the presence of signs. Block your wheels diagonally against the curb by turning your wheels into the curb when facing downhill and out to the street when facing uphill.

I do hope that the San Diego Planning Commission approves the City of San Diego’s Site Development Permit Application for the year-round rope at Children’s Pool Beach at the meeting on Sept. 27. The San Diego City Council approved the year-round rope on May 17, 2010 by a supermajority vote. The mayor signed this resolution. The California Coastal Commission gave their unanimous approval on July 11, 2012. I only ask that the San Diego Planning Commission also approves the year-round rope to protect the seals. Sara Ohara La Jolla

Seal rope is needed to protect marine life I am writing to urge officials to please deny the appeal and approve the City of San Diego’s Site Development Permit Application for the year-round rope at Children’s Pool Beach. The seals are treasured by many residents, tourists, and visitors to the area, and once they are gone, they cannot be replaced. We must do what we can to protect them and putting up a year-round rope is a very limited restriction on the beach and leaves swimmers with many options. As you will recall, the San Diego City Council approved the year-round rope on May 17, 2010 by a super-majority vote. The mayor also signed this resolution, and the California Coastal Commission gave their unanimous approval on July 11, 2012. Given these facts, I strongly hope the Planning Commissioners will deny the appeal and approve the year-round rope. Jill Marsal San Diego

OBITUARIES

Reinaldo Walter Beyer, MD 1954 – 2012

Reinaldo Walter Beyer, MD, 58, a Del Mar resident, died suddenly on September 8 when the plane he was practicing maneuvers in suffered a mechanical failure and crashed in Borrego Springs. Just one month earlier, Beyer competed in the FAI World Advanced Aerobatic Championships in Hungary, as part of an American team that took third place. Reinaldo was born June 10, 1954, in Chile. He was drawn to flying from an early age and took his first flight in his uncle’s airplane at the age of three. At the age of 16, Reinaldo started flying gliders and discovered aerobatics. He competed in

soaring and was a proficient flight instructor. Reinaldo put flying on hold while in medical school at the University of Chile. He then completed his residency and cardiology fellowship at University of California Los Angeles - Wadsworth VA Medical Center in Los Angeles. He accepted a professorship at the University of Chile, but soon returned to San Diego to marry his wife, Liz, and start his career. He practiced at University of California-San Diego until joining Sharp Rees-Stealy Medical Group in San Diego in 1999. He specialized in interventional cardiology procedures for coronary, valvular and congenital heart disease at Sharp Memorial Hospital. Reinaldo was an accomplished aerobatic pilot and competitor and represented the United States in international aerobatic competition as the captain of the USA Advanced Aerobatic Team in 2010. Reinaldo shared his passions for flying, skiing and exploring the wilderness with his wife, Elizabeth Noll, MD, who is also a cardiologist at Sharp Rees-Stealy. “Sharp Rees-Stealy has lost a dear friend, colleague

and an exceptional physician who positively touched the lives of his patients throughout his career, which spanned more than two decades,” said Donald C. Balfour, III, MD. “He will be greatly missed.” Reinaldo is survived by his wife, Elizabeth; his parents, Reinaldo and Eliana Beyer of Chile; his sister, Elizabeth; brothers, Arturo and Jorge and their children; and Red, his beloved Golden Retriever.

The man jumped in the backseat of the couple’s silver Honda Acura as they were leaving the pharmacy, on Villa La Jolla Drive North near Nobel Drive. After the couple obtained the cash, the man forced them to drive through La Jolla to Pacific Beach.

La Jolla High football blanked on the road against Valley Center

UC San Diego nets first league win of season

Freshman Danielle Dahle recorded her fourth doubledouble of the season to help lead the UC San Diego women’s volleyball team to a four-set victory over California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) opponent Cal State L.A. at RIMAC Arena on Saturday night. Three of the four sets went to extra points with UCSD winning by scores of 28-26, 24-26, 28-26 and 25-23. The Tritons moved to 6-4 overall and 1-1 in the CCAA, while CSULA fell to 3-6 and 1-1. The Tritons proved resilient as they were coming off a tough, three-set loss to Cal State Dominguez Hills on Friday night at home. Cal State L.A. came in with momentum following a huge

upset win at No. 20 Cal State San Bernardino Friday night. The sweep snapped CSUSB’s 44-match streak of home CCAA victories. “We played well at the end of the games, which was a big step forward for us,” UC San Diego head coach Ricci Luyties said. “We had some players who really stepped up tonight. All the games were tight and coming out on top really makes us feel good about ourselves.” UCSD is on the road for its next two matches. The Tritons play at Cal Poly Pomona on Thursday, Sept. 20 and at Humboldt State on Saturday, Sept. 22. Both CCAA matches start at 7 p.m.

Olympic gold medalist to coach for San Diego rowing women’s team The San Diego Rowing Club Juniors head coach Chris Callaghan has hired four new coaches for the women’s and men’s junior varsity and novice teams. Olympic gold medalist Susan Francia will be the new women’s varsity coach. Francia has been an integral part of the increasingly fast and competitive U.S. women’s national teams during the past several years. Francia won the gold medal in the women’s eight with a new world’s best time of Susan 5:55.50 in the 2008 Beijing Francia Olympics. Francia was also a member of the women’s eight that brought home gold in the 2012 London Olympics in August. Benton Sparks and Patti Pinkerton will be the new men’s and women’s novice coaches. Both coaches come to SDRC with years of experience and expertise.

New to SDRC Juniors will be a middleschool program for young rowers in preparation for entering the novice women’s and men’s high school teams. Middle school rowing will focus on having fun and practice rowing three days a week. Rowers will not need to race or travel to regattas. The coach will be Ryan Hemelt. “I am looking forward to the most experienced and successful team of coaches we have been fortunate to recruit for the San Diego Rowing Club since I have been head coach,” Callaghan said. “Our high school and middle school kids will have a great opportunity to develop lifetime team skills and rowing expertise with our outstanding new coaches.” SDRC has more than 100 young men and women from more than 40 high schools in the San Diego area. SDRC Juniors is open to all interested students, and no prior experience is necessary. For more information and-up-todate news, go to sdrcjrs.com.

UC San Diego places 11th at NorCal Invitational The 11th-ranked UC San Diego men’s water polo team finished the 2012 NorCal Invitational splitting the second day of play, defeating 12th-ranked Western Water Polo Association opponent UC Davis, after dropping its first match to WWPA No. 10 Loyola Marymount. The Tritons finished the tournament receiving 11th place. The Tritons struck early, outscoring the Lions 5-4 by halftime. LMU’s defense got stronger as the game unrolled, and eventually held UCSD off completely as they were unable to score in the fourth quarter. The Lions gained their first lead of the match, with a 10-6 final score. UCSD was led by Josh Stiling with three goals. David Higginson, Matt Michalko, and Brian Roach had a goal each.

Nick Michels earned six saves in the cage versus LMU. Against the Aggies, the team broke out offensively in both the first and third quarters, scoring four goals in each. The Tritons took a 6-1 lead from the half and nearly doubled it by the end of the match. Both David Higginson and Stiling finished the match with three goals. Syka added two, as well as Dietrich, Friedrich, and Michalko chipping in one apiece. Cameron Ravanbach held off the Aggies, finishing with five saves. The UC San Diego men’s water polo team will head to Whittier College for a pair of games playing the hosting Poets before matching up against Occidental, both on Saturday, Sept. 22 at Slade Aquatic Center.

Junior Seau to be inducted into Breitbard Hall of Fame In an unprecedented action, the San Diego Hall of Champions Board of Directors voted unanimously to forego the normal voting process and induct ex-San Diego Chargers All-Pro linebacker Junior Seau into the Breitbard Hall of Fame at the Salute to Champions on Feb. 25. Seau, who spent 13 years with the Chargers after being a standout multi-sport athlete at Oceanside High and an All-American career at the University of Southern California, would have been eligible for consideration in 2013 but after he tragically took his own life at age 43, the board of directors agreed he belonged among the 132 others honored since 1953. “When people think of the San Diego Chargers, especially the defense, the first name that comes to mind is Junior Seau,” said San Diego Hall of Champions President Denise Cooper. “He is one of the Chargers’ legends. We are proud to have Junior Seau join San Diego Hall of Famers like Ted Williams, Bill Walton and Maureen Connolly.” Known as an emotional leader, Seau

helped guide the Chargers into the 1994 Super Bowl against the San Francisco 49ers. Despite playing with a pinched nerve in his neck in the AFC Championship game, Seau was credited with 16 tackles in the 17-13 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was able to exhibit his trademark leap up, fist pump and leg kick after each jarring tackle. In his career, Seau was credited with 56.5 sacks, 1,524 tackles, 325 assists, 18 fumble recoveries and 18 interceptions. He was elected All-Pro six times and was named to the Pro Bowl 12 times. In 2011 he was inducted into the Chargers Hall of Fame.

section b 10 QUESTIONS

ArtPower!’s fall lineup is simply irresistible

Susan Middleton shares her passion for learning by supporting the library Susan Middleton is a native San Diegan. Her favorite places as a child were the beach and the local library. When asked, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” the answer was always, “A librarian!” Even her high school yearbook picture lists “librarian” as her future career. After graduating from the University of Colorado-Boulder where she studied Japanese language and literature, Susan Middleton and East Asian studies, she went to Korea with the Peace Corps. Middleton’s graduate degree in Library Science is from Indiana University. She has lived and worked in Korea, Japan, Iran, Saudi Arabia and Tanzania, and continues to travel when possible. She is a librarian at La Jolla Country Day School, and has been a member of the Friends of the La Jolla Branch Library for more than nine years. What brought you to La Jolla? After working in business libraries, public libraries and university libraries in cities both here and abroad, I returned to San Diego County to live near my parents and raise my two children, Amberley and Sean. It was my great and good fortune to apply for a job as a librarian at La Jolla Country Day School 28 years ago and be interviewed (and hired) by the head librarian at the school, Catherine Greene! Catherine is now the branch librarian at our Riford Library, and it is both an honor and a pleasure to be supporting her and her fine staff as President of the Friends group. What might you add, subtract or improve in the area? The La Jolla Library is a treasure for all in our community, and I hope to see funding for it that is secure, unequivocal and continuing. What inspires you? I am inspired daily by the generosity of volunteers — whether they are giving their time and effort or donating money. That people of all ages want to reach beyond themselves to help others, and sacrifice to do so, shows great humanity. If you hosted a dinner party for eight, whom (living or deceased) would you invite? Since I believe fervently in the transforming power of story, I would relish an evening with writers and tellers of fairy tales. First in the door is Aesop, whose moralizing will give us a firm foundation.

For afficionados of punk rock, poetry, and the New York art scene of the late 1960s and ‘70s, there’s a very special event: an evening of spoken word with legendary Patti Smith, the “Godmother of Punk,” who started her career by portraying herself as a 20th-century version of France’s 19th-century wildchild, poet Arthur Rimbaud. Smith’s most recent success is more mainstream, as author of the bestselling memoir “Just Kids,” which documents her life with the late, still-provocative, photographer Robert Mapplethorpe, a half-century ago. Smith, who has been called “a Rimbaud with Marshall amps,” is probably the only recipient of the following trifecta of honors: induction

Gala to raise funds, awareness and hope for kids in foster care

La Jolla Cultural Partners

By Kathy Day Longtime friends Lise Wilson and Debby Fishburn share a passion for giving back to their community. Now the La Jolla residents are sharing something else — with their husbands they are chairing the annual sold-out gala for Voices for Children, a nonprofit they say saves children’s lives. The 10th annual Starry, Starry Night gala on Sept. 29 will raise funds to support the organization that provides Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs) for the more than 5,600 children in the San Diego County foster care system. With its new venue at the Rancho Valencia Resort, which has just undergone an extensive renovation, the event will feature entertainment by blues guitarist Coco Montoya, who for a decade played with John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers before starting his own band. “Through no fault of their own these children, who are in the dependency court system, need someone to speak up for them,” said Fishburn, a former executive with one of the nation’s top retail stores, who served on the Voices board for nine years, including a stint as board chair. “It is hard not to be compelled by the mission.”

San Diego Dependency Court System ■ Each juvenile court judge has a caseload of around 1,000 children. The judge has, on average, 10-15 minutes to make decisions about each case. ■ Every dependent child is assigned to an attorney. The attorney represents 300-400 children. ■ Every family is assigned to a social worker who manages their case. Social workers may have caseloads of 40-50 families. ■ While children are not supposed to remain in foster care longterm, the average time children spend in foster care in San Diego is 40 months; that’s three birthdays spent away from home. ■ Many children remain in foster care longterm; these children will never return home and will never be adopted. Source: speakupnow.org

Debby Fishburn and Lise Wilson are heading up the Voices for Children gala that will raise funds to support its Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) program. Kathy Day Wilson, an attorney who was named to the VFC board only a year ago, said she was introduced to the nonprofit when she attended a previous Starry, Starry Night gala where she heard from a teen foster child who spoke quite movingly about her experience. “I heard what could be done through

CASAs,” she said. CASAs, who undergo an intense training program and make an 18-month commitment, stand up for the children who are in foster or group homes, investigating legal, educational and health issues while working with all of the parties involved in the case.

CASAs make recommendations about the child’s placement, whether it is to remain in a foster home, be reunited or adopted. And many, Wilson noted, stay with their case children for years, even until they age out of the foster system at 18 or 19. Fishburn said she learned about the program when she was in the Junior League. One of their projects was reading court files on dependency court cases — a task now handled by Voices for Children. “Several of our members were very active with Voices in its infancy,” she said.

Then there was a small office in the juvenile court with a staff of two; now the staff totals 45, and while there’s still a small office in the Kearny Mesa courthouse to handle day-to-day court activities, there’s also a full suite of offices offsite for the administration, including CEO Sharon M. Lawrence, and supervisors who oversee the CASAs. Fishburn and Wilson met about 30 years ago when Wilson and her date Steven Strauss — now her husband — went to a party with a group of young lawyers where

Table 926 offers California cuisine from seasonal, local ingredients

By Kelley Carlson ull up a chair at Table 926 and experience a taste of California. The setting is casual yet upscale, rustic yet polished. The five-seat bar and the main dining room tables are fashioned from fir; the gleaming floor is also composed of wood. Nature-inspired paintings by Jarod Farver rest against one brick wall; the other wall contains a display filled with horizontal bottles of vintages from around the world. Large windows — which permit views of the child-friendly, 10-seat outdoor patio — allow for natural light to filter through, and at night, the ceiling’s small amber lights fill in. Contemporary jazz music adds to the ambience. Chalkboards that list the day’s specials and upcoming events sandwich a window that provides a peek into the semiopen kitchen. “It’s important to be able to see the guests and have a relationship,” co-owner and Executive Chef Matt Richman said. Table 926 is only open during dinner hours, but kicks things off with a happy hour most evenings. Discounts are offered on certain labels of wine and beer, and bites, such as Pork Cheek Carnitas Tacos and the Cheese Plate. Much of the dinner and dessert menus is seasonal, driven by ingredient availability at area farms. One of Richman’s go-to spots for produce is Suzie’s Farm, near the Tijuana Estuary. He also sources seafood from a local

For meal starters, offerings include Vine Ripened Tomato Gazpacho with blue crab, avocado, micro greens and extra-virgin olive oil — a soup that is fresh and has a hint of spiciness; and Grilled Local Peaches with mache (a salad green with small, dark leaves), spiced walnuts in maple syrup, burrata and a white cava (Spanish sparkling wine) vinaigrette. Among the entrees are tender Glazed Pork Cheeks with guajillo-tamarind glaze and braised greens on top of polenta; and a Bistro Hamburger with manchego cheese, zinfandel-honey braised onions and housemade pickles on a brioche bun with a side of frites.

Roasted Beet Salad

The three-item children’s menu features a 4-ounce burger with manchego cheese on a brioche bun that is served with fries; chicken breast and fries; and penne pasta in butter and Parmesan. One of the dessert staples is the Caramelized Banana Split with scoops of Nutella, vanilla and raspberry ice cream. Do-it-yourself toppings of cherries, whipped cream, pistachios, chocolate sauce and a pineapplecaramel sauce are provided on a caddy. A prix-fixe menu is available Sundays, which allows the guest to select one appetizer, entree and dessert for $33. Every six to eight weeks, a $49 five-course beer dinner is held; wine dinners will eventually be planned, according to Richman. Patrons wear everything from jeans and T-shirts to suits. The crowd tends to be a little older earlier in the evening, and there are also families. But after 8 p.m., there are more people under the age of 40, Richman noted. He recommends requesting a seat in the dining room’s back row to watch Table 926 in action. “We’re really open-minded and humble, and try to stay as unpretentious as possible,” Richman said. As for parking, there are seven spots in the lot in front of the restaurant that are available on a first-come, first-serve basis after 5 p.m. Otherwise, there are places to park on nearby avenues.

La Jolla’s Gems of the week

WISH I’D SAID THAT! “Sometimes I lie awake at night, and ask, ‘Where have I gone wrong?’ Then a voice says to me, ‘This is going to take more than one night.’” — Charles M. Schulz

NOW IN THE VERNACULAR twitchfork: noun; an angry or aggressive protest on Twitter, particularly one seeking justice or vengeance.

t left of the Scripps Pier is a grassy pocket park with a handful of picnic tables and a couple of benches — perfect for watching sunsets and the waves break onto the shore. — Susan DeMaggio

The autumnal equinox marks the first day of fall. True. And this year, it “falls” on Saturday, Sept. 22. It’s also one of the two days of year when the north and south halves of the world face the Sun in equal amounts. When fall approaches, the green-colored food-making chlorophyll of plants is no longer needed, leaving us with the other colors that had been overpowered all summer long — beautiful reds, oranges, yellows, and even purples. — whyzz.com

Quilt auction will benefit church’s charity projects A unique to San Diego quilt by Mary West and Kim McKee that pays homage to the culture and beauty of San Diego and the Hotel Del Coronado will be auctioned off at a special dinner celebration, 5:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 29 at Good Samaritan Episcopal Church of La Jolla, 4321 Eastgate Mall. Proceeds will go toward supporting youth activities, building renovations, and missions at the church. The 2012 auction theme is “Under the Sea,” and the quilt features ocean creatures from off the coast of southern California — harbor seal, dolphins, crab, garibaldi, and a lobster. The quilt also incorporates the famous kelp beds that played a great part of San Diego history and industry. The project has been in the works for about a year. The quilt supplies alone cost more than $500, according to organizers, and the man-hours involved top 144. The machine quilting was created by Robin Gammel by using a long-handle quilting machine. Dinner tickets are $15 and available at (858) 458-1501 or goodsamchurch.org

www.lajollalight.com FROM 10 QUESTIONS, B1 He is followed by Charles Perrault. Hans Christian Andersen, and Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm might come together as they have already met. Oscar Wilde, who I hear can enliven a gathering, wanders in. Then come Neil Gaiman and Gregory Maguire. That makes eight. Gregory starts the conversation with this quote from Roger Scruton: “The consolation of the imaginary is not imaginary consolation,” and the conversation never lags. What are you reading? I am listening to my book group’s next book, T.C. Boyle’s “When the Killing’s Done” in the car, and reading “The Last Shot” by Lynn Schooler. Did you know that the last shot of the Civil War was fired in Alaska? What is your mostprized possession? If I take this literally, it is the ring on my finger that my mother gave me on the Mother’s Day before she died. It had been passed on to her by her stepfather, and she wore it every day of her life. It ties me to my ancestors and to memories of my mother. The most prized and important part of my life is my children, of course. What do you do for fun? Sit on the beach, dive through the waves, and sail on the sea. I do love the ocean. I like to hike, go to Padres games and, of course, read. And read some more. What is your mostmarked characteristic? I’d like to think I have a generous spirit that translates into patience and kindness, and genuine caring. What would be your dream vacation? A vacation to me is a relaxing break from routines, so that would be downhill skiing in the Rockies or hanging out at the beach. But travel — now that is another story. I favor literary pilgrimages. I went to Bhutan this spring, and that was a dream come true. Sikkim, Patagonia, Tasmania, Iceland and Ethiopia are all part of the dream. What is your philosophy of life? Do no harm. Travel light. Keep a book on the nightstand.

Contemporary art fair heats up interest in what’s new By Lonnie Burstein Hewitt he VIP preview of this year’s art fair, held Sept. 6, was hot, hot, hot! Inside the Balboa Park Activity Center, electric fans were going full blast as hundreds of art fans and collectors explored the booth-lined lanes of New Art City. One of the highlights was “Fair is Fair,” an interactive display by three UCSD art department grad students that told a tale of two fairs, a century apart. Whimsical costumes and historical artifacts combined to reference the park’s inaugural fair, the 1915 California-Panama Exposition, featuring impersonations of majorfunder John D. Spreckels and a representative of the on-site nudist colony that was one of the main attractions in 1915.

Through the years both have been involved in numerous charitable organizations, including Las Patronas. Fishburn served as president and co-chair of the organization’s Jewel Ball — one of the county’s premiere charity events. Wilson, who became involved with Las Patronas at Fishburn’s urging, also chaired the Jewel Ball, which is held each year at the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club. While their excitement about the Voices gala, from menu to venue is evident, it’s the cause that has them working countless hours. “Our focus is on Voices’ mission statement,” Wilson said. Fishburn noted that a successful fundraiser “showcases the agency. Because Voices for Children is 99-percent privately funded, we are reliant on people contributing from our community. This is our opportunity to shine a light on

LA JOLLA LIGHT - september 20, 2012 - Page B11

in a drawing of a line of nearly 20 school buses filled with children. This year, Voices aims to enlist 482 volunteers to supplement the 800 already serving — not nearly enough to provide a CASA for every child. In the first two months of the fiscal year, they have recruited 85. “Our goal is to have every child in the system have a CASA,” Wilson said. She emphasized that her friends who are judges in the dependency court have told her how much they appreciate and respect the CASAs on the cases they hear. And she added, the judges are quite receptive to the recommendations they make. It costs about $2,500 a year to support each volunteer, Wilson said, and while not everyone can be a CASA, she hopes people will “fund a CASA” — or half a CASA, or even a part of one. “There is an amazing return on investment,” Fishburn added as Wilson chimed in, “It’s a bargain.” Their husbands are both partners at Cooley LLP. Strauss specializes in complex business

litigation (his wife’s specialty was complex civil litigation) and Wain Fishburn, a founding partner of the firm, is in the business department, where he has worked with an array of public and private companies, many in the biotech and technology arenas. Strauss serves on the La Jolla Playhouse board and is a past president; Fishburn chairs the board of the Sanford-Burnham Institute and the Wireless-Life Sciences Alliance, and has been active with CONNECT since its early years. With their connections and experience, the two couples are aiming to attract some first-time attendees to join them on the Starry, Starry Night. “It is time and money well spent on a good organization,” Debby Fishburn said, as her friend nodded in agreement. “And the impact on our society is huge.” Editor’s note: Freelance writer Kathy Day is a Voices for Children CASA who joined the program after retiring from her post as editor of the La Jolla Light.

Gala in La Jolla Farms to benefit foster youth PEERS Network, a group of young entrepreneurs and philanthropists, will host a gala to benefit foster youth Oct. 13 at a private La Jolla Farms estate. The gala, to include entertainment, dancing, gourmet food and open bars, will benefit Just in Time for Foster Youth, a non-profit serving 18-year-old foster youth transitioning to adulthood. Nearly half of all foster youth become homeless within 18 months of their 18th birthday, a quarter of them end up in prison and 97 percent of them do not attend college. Tickets are $175 each or $600 for four. VIP tickets are $500 and include access to a private cocktail reception, followed by a tour of the largest privately owned art collection in Southern California.

Outdoor Film Fun Directed by the quirky character-actor Bob Balaban, “Parents,” (1989) is an odd-tasting tale (called “Daddy’s a Cannibal!” for its German release). It screens 8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 27 on the East Lawn, Price Center, UC San Diego campus. Set in the 1950s in a seemingly sweet suburban neighborhood, all is not what it seems.

Athenaeum soiree offers guests an evening in ‘Paris’

T

he Sept. 7 evening at the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library had it all — a chanteuse, mime, can-can dancers, string quartet, accordionist, wine and Champagne, vichyssoise with truffle cream and chives, cheese and baguettes, and a roasted apple caramel tart served with vanilla Chantilly cream ala Hyatt Regency La Jolla. Guests bid on one-of-a-kind silent auction items as they strolled through the library rooms, wowed by each romantic dining vignette designed for the occasion by the art committee. Toulouse Lautrec, paintbrush in hand, was spotted in the corner of one alcove. Each year the library chooses a celebrated culture to explore for its gala theme and guests come attired in costume. Proceeds from the evening support operations at the membership library. — Susan DeMaggio

Spending the night in vampire land

Let Inga tell you ...

I

’ve never been wild about nighttime in remote areas and all these vampire movies aren’t helping. Normally, of course, it’s not an issue because I live in the nice, safe, crime-ridden city. If this hesitation about rural living sounds unreasonable, I would like to point out that with a few exceptions, like King Kong (who was a reluctant city dweller), four out of five monsters, UFOs, vampires, amorphous masses, psychos and parapsychological phenomena on your moviescreen prefer isolated country settings. Whether such creatures exist in fact is immaterial. In the middle of the night in a

woodsy setting they are alive and well in my imagination. We recently spent a long weekend in the state of Washington at a stunning but seriously remote address I will call One Forest Primeval. Walking around in the surrounding woods, I half expected to see a coven of Twilight Saga Volturi materialize from the edge of the forest and size me up for lunch. I do have to say that the Twilight series movies don’t move me the way the oldschool monster flicks did. Maybe it’s a generational thing, but Godzilla will always be my guy. And maybe it’s because the Twilight series is far less about vampires and werewolves than about lust. (For the record, I am not against lust. In fact, some of the best moments of my life have involved lust. But I’m generally only attracted to creatures of my own species.) Anyway, come dusk, I would look out onto the grassy clearing outside our window and realize that it was the perfect UFO-movie

If you’ve watched any sci-fi flicks at all, you know that UFO’s have a penchant for landing in just such places and scaring the poor locals excretionless. Around 2 a.m., with the wind brushing tree branches ominously against the windows, I’d develop this sudden conviction that I was in the place that The Blob (Giant Ants, Mighty Behemoth, Boston Strangler, little green men with ray

guns, Andromeda Strain, Ghost of Christmas Past, Edward Cullen) had singled out to first do its thing. I guess what bothers me most about being one of the first victims is that in horror movies, it’s always a bit part. Chomp, slosh, swallow, and you’re forgotten. It would seriously annoy me to be relegated to a list of “alsoeatens.” Of course, I’m aware that the demise of the first few

victims is just a little dramatic intro designed to hold the audience until the plot thickens The Next Day. That’s when the unwitting neighbor shows up to borrow a cup of sugar and wonders vaguely why the front door is a) radioactive b) splintered, or c) full of giant teeth marks; investigates further (what are neighbors for?); comes upon the Scene of Horror (which even if the acting is

really bad can usually be identified by the G-flat tremolo chord); and drops her cup, which shatters but miraculously never severs her anterior tibial vein, unless it’s one of those reality medical shows. Laugh if you will, but I have a friend who didn’t take a shower for seven years after seeing “Psycho,” and I know at least a dozen “Jaws” viewers who never swam in the ocean again. As for the Twilight Saga trilogy, I can’t imagine this is doing anything for Washington state tourism, except for teenage girls hoping to run into Robert Pattinson at the Forks Mini-Mart. My husband, meanwhile, maintains that he loves the stillness, the lack of so much as a cricket chirping, the trees whispering in the breeze. He doesn’t know they always get the unsuspecting ones first. — Look for La Jolla resident Inga’s lighthearted looks at life every other week in La Jolla Light.

Four winning works emerge from Black & White exhibit By Will Bowen Things are rarely black and white, they are usually shades of gray, as philosophers like to say ‌ except, of course, at the annual Black & White Juried Art Competition, showing daily from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. through Oct. 7 at the La Jolla Art Association gallery, 8100 Paseo Del Ocaso in La Jolla Shores. Here everything, including paintings, prints and photographs, are composed of black or white hues exclusively. This is the third Black & White show for LJAA. This year, the judge of the competition was Angelika Villagrana, a German printmaker, who has lived in the United States for 42 years. Villagrana is president of the Artist’s Guild at The San Diego Museum of Art in Balboa Park. For the Black & White exhibition, she selected 40 works from more than 140 submitted to the competition. At a reception on Sept.15, Villagrana, who has a studio in Gallery 21 in Spanish Tania Kelvin takes first place.

Village, announced the winners of the competition. “My criterion for evaluation was that the works should show artistic skill, tell a story, and speak to the emotions,� she said. Villagrana was assisted by Janine Donston, a photographer and former flag twirler from Castle Park High School, who has only been with the LJAA for six months. Donston attended to the details of the show through an online computer process. “It was a great pleasure and a lot of fun to be involved, mostly through virtual reality!� Donston said. A first-place ribbon and $400 in prize money went to a jubilant Tania Kelvin for her exquisite charcoal drawing of a pair of hands belonging to Merce Cunningham, the modern dance choreographer. Kelvin said she chose to draw Cunningham’s hands from a photograph because

FROM BLACK & WHITE, B16 “they were a challenge; although they were not pretty hands, they showed character, integrity, and poise, and they told a story.” Villagrana said that it was immediately apparent that Kelvin’s drawing was the best piece in the show. “The work created a powerful emotion. My eyes were constantly drawn to it as I tried to interpret what type of person the clasped hands belonged to.” In accepting the prize, Kelvin said, “I am greatly honored by the award and find it to be encouraging. Charcoal is not my first medium. I most like to dabble in sculpture — metal, stone — and I am also a photographer by inclination.” Second place and $250 went to Ginny English for an oil painting of five young African boys waving hand signs by the roadside, which she titled “Solidarity.” The children each seem to have a different personality, yet jointly stand for pride, strength, and the desire to build a new Africa. “The children are from the new African nation of Burundi, which is on the shores of Lake Tanganyika. My brother went there to a help a missionary build a fence, and a

friend of his took the photograph of the boys, which he sent me to paint.” Third place and a cash prize of $100 went to Jill Rowe for a well-organized and clever surrealistic digital painting, called “Frame of Mind.” The painting depicts a floating tile floor in a hallway, above which is a mirror or a painting, which leads to an outside scene in the woods. Honorable mention, which also had a cash prize of $100, went to Joan Niles for a monotype print called “Hidden Beach.” Niles carved out a scene in Plexiglas with rollers and dental tools of a beach scene silhouetted by a city, then pressed a piece of Rives 100 cotton paper to the inked Plexiglas for the final one-of-a kind product. “I was more interested in the viewer feeling my painting rather than seeing it clearly. With this process, the press takes over at a certain point and you are not really sure what you will get.” Renee Newman was one of the many people who came to see the exhibition. She called the show, “wonderful and magnificent.” For more information, call (858) 459-1196 or visit lajollaart.org

Jewel sparkles at summer concert for homeless women

T

he inaugural, Rachel’s Brunch, a benefit for Rachel’s House, which is run by San Diego’s Catholic Charities to provide services for homeless women and their children, nearly reached its goal of $500,000, Sunday, Sept. 9 on the grounds of Joan Waitt’s estate in La Jolla. Singer/songwriter Jewel (in town for a concert at Humphrey’s) performed following inspirational speeches, brunch catered by Campine, and a live auction. Restaurateur James Brennan, with honorary chairs Joan Waitt and Betsy Manchester, organized the fundraiser. Catholic Charities opened San Diego’s first program for women in 1984, Rachel’s Women’s Center, to provide a safe place for woman to escape the violence and torment of life on the street. Each year thousands seek refuge from the realities of life on the streets at one of Rachel’s programs. According to Sister RayMonda DuVall and her team at Rachel’s, the population of homeless women in San Diego is growing. Female veterans returning home with lives shattered by their wartime experiences are overshadowing domestic violence, unemployment and metal illness — the traditional causes of homelessness for women.

Breakfast’s an epiphany, so discover marvelous morning meals

Kitchen Shrink By Catharine L. Kaufman “Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a lord, and dinner like a pauper.” — Ancient proverb

F

ood gurus, school administrators, teachers, athletes and smart moms realize that breakfast, hands down, is the most important meal of the day for fueling the body and shifting the brain into high gear. September is National Breakfast Month, just in time for the back-toschool crowd. Sew your Wild Oats According to health food honcho Dr. Andrew Weil, it’s important to start the day with some carbohydrate to jump-start the brain. Every breakfast should include a slow burning or complex carb for a dose of well-paced nourishing fuel to fortify a body until lunch. A slice of whole grain toast or bagel dressed with organic cream cheese or

almond, sunflower or walnut butter — healthy proteins loaded with fiber, Vitamin E, calcium and omega-3 fatty acids — is a good start. Hearty, steel-cut oatmeal topped with potassiumpacked banana slices, or iron-rich raisins and a splash of almond milk, makes a scrumptious energy-boosting option, rich in soluble fiber to put the skids on cholesterol. Serve seasonal fresh fruits, another form of complex carbs, instead of high-sugar fruit drinks that wallop the pancreas. Kiwi is a super fruit that dials-up more Vitamin C than oranges and more potassium than bananas. Blueberries, an immune boosting purple gem, has a motherlode of antioxidants and Vitamins A, B, C and E, while watermelon is bursting with electrolytes and potassium that are lost through sweating during morning activities. Be a Culture Vulture Certain dairy, like cottage cheese and yoghurt, are loaded with protein and calcium to boost strength and density for young and aging bones.

Rise and Shine from Coast-to-Coast American breakfasts across the land serve a diverse smorgasbord of hot and cold dishes running the gamut from fatty southern comfort foods, including fried green tomatoes with country ham, red eye gravy with grits and biscuits, to lean California cuisine of white egg omelets accompanied by fresh local fruits and veggies. Some good all-American choices include PB&J stuffed French toast, bacon and egg scramble with home fries, and deli-inspired New York

fare of bagels, cream cheese and lox. Breakfast Bites n Cereal is the top breakfast food in the USA: Cheerios — the people’s first choice. n 1.5 billion cups of tea are sipped everyday around the world, while 1.6 billion cups of joe are chugged down. Coffee is the most popular beverage in the USA — 65 percent consume coffee during breakfast. n French toast originated in the Middle Ages when cooks used leftover scraps of bread, milk and eggs to fortify their poor families during rough times. How Locals Dish It Up The new Cusp restaurant in the legendary Hotel La

Jolla serves sweeping views of the Pacific along with Chef Donald Lockhart’s breakfast faves — “Blueberry Ricotta Pancakes” with house-made ricotta and caramelized bananas; a savory “Open Faced Pastrami Egg Melt”; and the lighter option of “Uncle Frank’s Quinoa,” an eggwhite scramble blending mushrooms, spinach, ovendried tomatoes and the gluten-free Incan grain. Dinner for breakfast? Check out Brian Malarkey’s “Breakfast Pizza” at La Jolla’s Herringbone. The pie is topped with breakfast regulars of bacon, eggs, Swiss cheese and hollandaise sauce. Little Italy’s Davanti Enoteca does savory and

sweet delights, such as “Calzone del Mezzadro” incorporating scrambled eggs, potato hash, sausage and provolone between folded pizza dough, while “Calzone di Frutta” has an apple and cherry compote stuffing with mascarpone cream topping. True Food Kitchen goes light for “Quinoa Johnny Cakes,” with fresh blueberries and Greek yoghurt. And La Jolla’s Brockton Villa serves “The Puerto Huevos Steamer,” combining soy chorizo, steamed egg whites, black beans, brown rice, avocado and house made salsa. — For more breakfast recipes, e-mail kitchenshrink@ san.rr.com or visit FreeRangeClub.com

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

Check-in is at Chase Bank, 7777 Girard Ave., where a Hand Stamp, which is required for service, and a map to the events will be provided. Tickets are $45 through (858) 551-1250 or by check (payable to Foundation of LJHS) mailed to: Foundation of La Jolla High School, 750 Nautilus Street, La Jolla, CA 92037, or online at ljhs.sandi.net/ Foundation/event-tasteoflajolla.html

ANY INFORMATION OBTAINED WILL BE USED FOR THAT PURPOSE. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, this information can be obtained from one of the following three companies: LPS Agency Sales & Posting at (714) 730-2727, or visit the Internet Web site www.lpsasap.com (Registration required to search for sale information) or Priority Posting & Publishing at (714) 573-1965 or visit the Internet Web site www. priorityposting.com (Click on the link for “Advanced Search” to search for sale information), or auction.com at 1-800-280-2832 or visit the Internet Web site www.auction.com, using the Trustee Sale No. shown above.
