Historical Society acquires old deed to St. James by-the-Sea

By Ashley Mackin The La Jolla Historical Society is now home to the original deed to St. James by-the-Sea Episcopal Church, 743 Prospect St. The deed presentation took place Monday afternoon, Sept. 24. The original legal deed of transfer from Virginia Scripps to the Church is just one of many documents found during a recent cleanup of Church records. “It’s a link to La Jolla’s past and it’s a very important part of La Jolla’s past,” said Michael Mishler, archivist and curator of the La Jolla Historical Society. Mishler said in the 1900s, sisters Virginia and Ellen Scripps owned much of the land on which the Historical Society and Saint James Church now reside. “Virginia [Scripps] was active in the Episcopal Church, so she helped provide the funds, as I understand it, to build the church and she allowed them to use the land – or she deeded them the land they’re on,” Mishler said. He added that the Wisteria Cottage, which now serves as a venue for the Historical Society, formerly housed the Church offices. Rev. Eleanor Ellsworth presented the file to the Historical Society, which included several deeds of transfer to and from the Scripps sisters, as well as original blueprints from architect Irving Gill. She said some of the deeds date back to 1903. The Historical Society will make copies of these documents for the Church to keep, while they archive the originals to preserve them. “One of our goals is collect the history of La Jolla and this is a significant part of the history,” Mishler said. “We’re always looking to have the organizations [and] groups that are active, that are part of La Jolla, preserve their histories. Our job, what we provide, is a place for those things to be preserved; we’d like to be the archive for the community.”

Kudos to La Jolla Boy Scout Troop 506
ach year after Labor Day, La Jolla Boy Scout Troop 506 organizes its Family Surf Camp at San Elijo campground in Cardiff. This year, Sept. 7-9, some 55 troopers enjoyed the weekend of unusual warm weather, learning ocean skills to earn ‘Waterman’ patches, and sharing jokes and s’mores around the campfire. The highlight was the annual beach
cleanup when the Scouts worked in teams to scour the beach, collecting a dozen bags of non-recyclable items, plastic, glass and cans. Event sponsors included Mitch’s Surf Shop, Pizza Port, VG’s Donuts, and Roberto’s Mexican Food. Troop 506 meets 6:30 p.m. Mondays at the La Jolla United Methodist Church, 6063 La Jolla Blvd. — Mariola Stojic

Merchants Association still mum on location of new office space By Pat Sherman The La Jolla Village Merchants Association (LJVMA) is still hesitant to disclose the location of its new 2,500-square-foot office space on Prospect Street, pending finalization of lease negotiations and other details. The new, larger quarters will house both LJVMA’s administrative offices and the La Jolla Visitor Information Center, the latter of which currently occupies a small frontage space near the corner of Herschel Avenue and Prospect Street.
Every four to six weeks, volunteers from Wells Fargo Bank in La Jolla serve as volunteer block captains, walking The Village and handing out important information to business owners. The La Jolla Village Merchants Association’s executive director, Sheila Fortune (far left), administers the program. Pat Sherman
n Village aesthetics During its Sept. 12 meeting, LJVMA trustees discussed the condition of sidewalks, hanging flower baskets and other Village aesthetics, many of which trustees said are in need of greater upkeep. The association’s new executive director, Sheila Fortune, said LJVMA is trying to take the lead on beautification issues, though it doesn’t have the income to tackle all the problems. As one possible solution, Fortune suggested the formation of a block beautification program, to which building owners would pay an assessment. Trustee Egon Kafka said it is up to shopkeepers to sweep the sidewalk in front of their space, noting that “mom and pop” shops often do a better job maintaining public space than corporate-owned businesses. “If people just keep expecting everything to be done for them, it’s never going to work,” said Kafka, who with his wife, Maureen, offered to pay for an additional month of upkeep of the hanging flower baskets in The Village. In the end, the LJVMA voted to spend an
additional $6,000 to maintain the baskets through the end of the year. Additional bids for annual maintenance have been coming in at less than $20,000 — a substantial reduction from the $25,000 cost stated during last month’s LJVMA meeting. n Belvedere Promenade project LJVMA trustees also voted to spend $3,000 for two conceptual renderings of the longproposed Belvedere Promenade project, which would replace an existing one-way section of Prospect Street between Herschel and Girard avenues with an ocean-view pedestrian promenade. The renderings, which will reflect changes to the landscape and parking based on a recently conducted survey, will be used for fundraising and educational purposes. Approval of the funding was contingent upon the renderings being done digitally, so that any further changes can be made easily and affordably. LJVMA recently took over stewardship of the Belvedere Promenade. Merchants association trustee Robert Lane expressed some concern with the LJVMA taking on the project, noting that it lacks a timeline for completion and has no concrete budget. “I would like to see how much money the organization is planning on spending on this project to the end, or until they hand it off to someone else,” Lane said, noting that the Belvedere Promenade has been on the table for decades and hasn’t had enough momentum to get off the ground.

La Jolla Community Planning Association board vice-president Joe LaCava will lead a presentation on the city’s budget process for capital improvement projects during the organization’s October meeting. PAT SHERMAN
Pilot program will link citizens, budget process By Pat Sherman The mayor’s office is inviting the public to participate in development of the city’s capital improvement budget for fiscal year 2014, via a series of community meetings, including one scheduled at the La Jolla Rec Center, 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 4. The presentation, to be held during the regular monthly meeting of the La Jolla Community Planning Association (CPA), will offer insight into the budget process and how the public can make its community priorities known before money is allocated for capital improvement projects, such as street repair and public facility maintenance. “Rather than waiting till the spring when there’s almost no time for meaningful input to change the draft budget, communities are being invited to provide input prior to staff development of that budget,” said CPA board vice-president Joe LaCava, who established the program and serves as chair of the San Diego’s Community Planners Committee, which is comprised of the chairs of the city’s 42 community planning groups (including the La Jolla CPA). LaCava said city officials recognized that the annual capital improvement budget development process was not transparent and easily accessible to residents. “The standard April through June timeframe for budget review was too compressed for meaningful input and deliberations,” LaCava said. “Rather than delay public input until the draft budget is published in April, the proposal was to engage the public in the fall, before the mayor’s staff begins drafting the budget in December. “Each of the (city’s) 42 planning groups will be invited to hold hearings and (give) community input as to what should be

There are no additional service reductions in the 2013 Proposed Budget — Mayor Jerry Sanders funded,” LaCava said. “This is a great opportunity for public participation.” Given the city’s ongoing fiscal woes, LaCava said he doesn’t feel that city officials are likely to approve funding any new projects in fiscal year 2015 (July 2014-June 2015), though he said moving forward it is important for community members to begin educating themselves, identifying budget priorities and taking part in the process. “We’re using this first effort as kind of a learning curve to figure out how the public participation process should work, to kind of get ourselves educated, and then really do a much better job for fiscal year 2015,” LaCava said.

Scientists meet in La Jolla to discuss rising sea level Editor’s note: This is the conclusion of a two-part series reporting on a high-level, international workshop on sea-level rise, held at UC San Diego, Sept. 5-7. Part 1 (published in the Sept. 20 issue of La Jolla Light and posted online at lajollalight.com) examined research findings and strategies to combat and adapt to projected shortand long-term rises in sea level. The following examines a range of policy measures coastal cities around the world are already adopting in light of sea-level rise.
By Lynne Friedmann here is broad consensus among scientists that climate change due to greenhouse gas emissions from human activities is real and on-going and that a major consequence is that global sea level is rising and will inundate parts of many cities and other coastal landscapes. Under current understanding, the global sea level is projected to rise (over 2000 levels) by 0.2 to 0.4 meters (0.7 to 1.3 feet) by the year 2050 and 0.8 to 1.4 meters (2.6 to 2.6 feet) by 2100. “Sea-level rise is not a tsunami, but a creeping threat,” said Azizan Abu Samah, Professor of Geography and Coordinator of the Malaysian Antarctic Program, University of Malaya, speaking at an International Workshop on Coastal Cities, Climate Change, and Sea-Level Rise, held at UC San Diego. So, where do we, as citizens and communities, go from here? Despite the popular image of “floods” and the destruction of civilization as we know it, sea-level rise is not necessarily an impediment to human development or progress, but rather it is a catalyst for the great and essential societal transformation to sustainability, according to David S. Woodruff, organizer of the workshop and director of the Sustainability Solutions In-

stitute, at UC San Diego. Tackling sea level rise requires a process that simultaneously addresses scientific, technical, and social issues. This process needs to be able to support local innovative responses (adaptive or mitigation) based on the best international scientific data and analyses. Each city or region can adapt to and/or attempt to mitigate the local threat of inundation. Adaptation may involve planned retreat as infrastructure ages. Mitigation may involve building sea walls. Both types of responses are very expensive and require very long-term planning and funding. The costs of doing nothing are large and increase with time. “We need technical and social innovation,” said Steffen Lehmann, director for the Center for Sustainable Design and Behavior, University of South Australia, who is an architect and urban planner with a focus on “sustainable urbanism.” “Technology is only useful if embedded in society,” he said. “And, interfaced so well that people use it.” California is leading the nation in climate change policy.

This has necessitated a multi-institutional approach given jurisdiction and legal requirements involving owners’ property rights, California Coastal Commission authority, local coastal planning, and nonprofit environmental groups (such as the Coastal Conservancy), among others. Even on the local level, multiple agencies and stakeholders come into play when it comes to addressing sea-level rise. The City of Los Angeles is a case in point. It shares coastal resources and infrastructure with the cities of Santa Monica and El Segundo. Within the city itself, a top-level participatory process has been put in place to inventory assets, exposure, and the ability to adapt by various city departments, such as the Port of Los Angeles, Parks and Recreation, Sanitation, etc. “They are institutional knowledge holders,” said Juliette Hart, Regional Research and Planning Specialist with USC

Lead sponsor of the workshop was the Association of Pacific Rim Universities (APRU) a consortium of 42 leading research universities in the Pacific Rim. APRU was founded in 1997, by four visionary presidents and chancellors (USC, UCLA, Caltech, and UC Berkeley) who envisioned an alliance of leading research universities focused on the advancement of the Pacific Rim to contribute to the development of an increasingly integrated Pacific Rim community. Workshop participants prepared recommendations from the meeting for improving international cooperation on sea-level rise issues. Those recommendations will be presented, in October, to the Kyoto Science and Technology for Society Forum, an annual world gathering of academic, business, and government leaders.

Car crashes into drugstore A car crashed into the front of Pharmaca drugstore at 7650 Girard Ave. on the afternoon of Sept. 21, shattering both the storefront window and the car windshield. The unidentified driver was described as, “an elderly woman,” by witness Eric Mitchell, a security guard at the Bank of America next door. Mitchell said the car was parked in front of the store when the accident occurred. As the driver attempted to pull out into traffic, she put the car in reverse and backed up. With too many cars coming, she pulled forward into the parking spot, which was perpendicular to the store. Mitchell said he thinks the driver must have thought she put the car into reverse again, because she accelerated with enough force to propel her vehicle into the storefront window. — Staff reports

La Jolla welcomes new police lieutenant Mike Hastings has joined San Diego Police’s Northern Division as a service area lieutenant, overseeing the beach areas from La Jolla Shores south to Mission Bay. Hastings, who has been with SDPD for more than 20 years, first served at Northern Division in 1996 as a patrol officer, and later as a detective sergeant covering Clairemont. “This is actually my third tour at Northern Division,” Hastings told members of the La Jolla Shores Association, during its
Sept. 12 meeting. “I just can’t tell you how great it is to be a service area lieutenant in a place where I pushed a police car, because I’ve been able to see things from different perspectives,” he said. Hastings began his career with SDPD in 1991 as a reserve officer, going on to graduate from the regional police academy in 1994 with officer Omar Sinclair, who also is stationed at Northern Division, servicing La Jolla. During his career with SDPD,
Hastings also ran a homicide team, and worked in the domestic violence unit and internal affairs. “I work for all of you,” Hastings said. “Everybody has a boss in life and all of you are my boss, and so your priorities have to be our priorities — and they will be.” n Hastings can be reached at (858) 552-1706 or mhastings@ pd.sandiego.gov.

Injury Prevention for Athletes The majority of sports-related injuries are due to overuse, strength & flexibility imbalances, and poor training habits. Overuse injuries are caused by excessive wear and tear to the body, particularly on the ankle, knee, shoulder and elbow joints. Strain injuries involve muscles & tendons and are often the result of inadequate warm-up prior to a workout or pushing too hard past the point of fatigue. Sprains involve the ligaments and are usually caused by a fall or other trauma to the joint. Following an effective strengthening & stretching routine in the off-season can help decrease the risk of injury upon return to competition. During the competitive season, a well-developed sports program should incorporate agility/speed work, balance training, plyometrics, sports-specific drills, and core stabilization to maximize performance and keep participants injury-free. Scheduled rest days are also crucial to avoid over-training. At Ability Rehab we focus on the goal of a lifetime of pain-free activity. Our sport-specific training & rehab programs are highly customized because we understand that no two athletes are alike. Whether you are looking to gain a competitive edge or get back to your sport of choice after injury, we can help. Call our office today for an evaluation.

Town Council moves forward with new and returning officers By Pat Sherman Despite recent discord among its executive committee, the La Jolla Town Council’s board of trustees appeared to be back on track Sept. 13, during the organization’s regular monthly meeting. District 1 City Councilwoman Sherri Lightner administered the oath of office to returning executive committee members Cindy Greatrex (president) and Sonia Marie Olivas (secretary), as well as to new executive committee members Steve Haskins (first vice-president), Peter Wulff (second vicepresident) and Yolanda de Riquer (treasurer). Greatrex and Olivas, who resigned from their posts last month, were reinstated after the disagreement was hashed out at a Sept. 4 special meeting, which led to the resignation of Ken King as former first vicepresident and the censure of immediate past president Rick Wildman.
working to obtain an exemption from NMFS. If the exemption is granted, demolition would likely be completed by November. If it is not and a permit is required, demolition will occur after the seal pupping season (Dec. 15-May 15). Construction of the new tower will begin next summer and take approximately 220 days. Work will cease during the 2013-2014 pupping season, and resume in summer 2014.

Stronghold Engineering was awarded a contract to design and build the project, for which 90 percent of the design is complete. A representative from Lightner’s office said the city must obtain an “Incidental Seal Harassment Permit” from the National Marine and Fishery Services (NMFS) before it can demolish the tower.

Planning Association green lights red curb, La Jolla Farms project By Pat Sherman Several items sailed through the La Jolla Community Planning Association (CPA) approval process during its Sept. 6 meeting, with only minor objections or questions. n Valet Parking: CPA trustees approved a valet parking permit for Finest City Valet, which will operate a public valet parking service in front of Barfly restaurant at 909 Prospect St. La Jolla’s Traffic and Transportation committee approved the permit at its July meeting. Finest City owner Troy Martin said the cost will be a flat rate of $10 per vehicle, and that the service will be available to anyone, regardless of whether they are Barfly patrons. Cars will be parked in the garage beneath Barfly. n Street Closures: Trustees also approved planned street closures for the 9th annual Concours d’Elegance car show, to be held April 6-7, 2013. Traffic and Transportation approved the street closures in July, pending the demonstrated approval of businesses along Prospect and Wall Streets. The only change to this year’s event, said event president Michael Dorvillier, will be its expansion to a portion of Girard Avenue between Prospect and Wall Streets. Though a portion of the north side of Girard will be blocked off for the event, two lanes of traffic will still be accessible on the south side of Girard. The Concours event costs about $200,000 to produce and typically raises about $60,000 for its beneficiaries, the La Jolla Historical Society and the Monarch School. n Curb Red Lines: Barber Tract homeowner Ron McLeod was given CPA approval to paint a section of curb opposite his driveway red, despite some trustees’
concerns that it could set a precedent in which other homeowners would demand the same concession. McLeod said he and his wife are unable to get their cars in and out of their driveway when other vehicles are parked on the street in the vicinity. “Our street is narrow, less than 20 feet wide,” McLeod said. “If a car or a truck is parked across from us, it is almost impossible to get out.” CPA trustee Tom Brady said he was one of three ‘no’ votes on the Traffic and Transportation committee, due to his concern over already scarce parking. Architect Matthew Walsh, who represented McLeod, noted that if the couple is unable to park in their driveway they would occupy an additional street parking space anyway. Trustee Tim Lucas said the McLeods must be able to back out of their driveway, in case of an emergency. “It shouldn’t be illegal to get out of your driveway,” he said. n Home Demolition: CPA trustees also approved a Coastal Development Permit to demolish a 10,383 square-foot house and build a new 9,708 square-foot home on 2.37 acres, at 9882 La Jolla Farms Road. The proposed Wu-Tsai residence would also include an attached four-car garage and 951-square-foot pool house-companion unit. Paul Metcalf, representing the adjacent Encore Trust Residence at 9872 La Jolla Farms Road, which is currently under construction, expressed some minor concerns with the location of the pool house, though several nearby residents spoke highly of the project and its modest scale. In August, the Development Permit Review committee also lent is support to the Wu-Tsai development, a large portion of

which would be dedicated as open space. “In terms of project compliance, you can see that a massive, 35,000-square-foot home could be put there,” said Matt Peterson, who represented the applicant. “Our client is proposing (a total of) 11,710 square feet,” with elevations below the 30-foot height limit.
“We think this is a real sensitively designed project,” Peterson said. “Obviously, there’s no neighborhood controversy over it.” n New Trustee: Finally, newly appointed CPA trustee Bob Collins was sworn in during the Sept. 6 meeting.

District 1 City Council candidates face off during La Jolla Light debate By Pat Sherman ncumbent District 1 City Councilmember Sherri Lightner faced challenger Ray Ellis Wednesday night, Sept. 19, during a debate hosted by the La Jolla Light at the Museum of Contemporary Art in La Jolla. Moderated by UC San Diego associate professor of political science, Thad Kousser, the candidates fielded questions from the editorial staff of the Light, Del Mar Times and Carmel Valley News, as well as those from some of the nearly 200 people in attendance. Questions involved everything from pension reform and economic development to the renewed interest in the Belvedere Promenade project, which would replace a one-way section of Prospect Street between Girard and Herschel avenues with an oceanview, pedestrian plaza. Both candidates said they support the Belvedere project, which is part of the La Jolla Community Plan and is currently moving forward with guidance and oversight from the La Jolla Village Merchants Association. “It’s about time it’s going to come to fruition,” Lightner said. Ellis said the project could benefit local businesses, though he believes the community should have a chance to weigh in on it again. The candidates were next asked what they would do to ease traffic congestion along Torrey Pines Road, heading in and out of La Jolla, and whether they supported a proposed bridge over Torrey Pines Road connecting north and south sections of La Jolla Scenic Drive, as well as the Regents
Candidates Ray Ellis and Sherri Lightner respond to questions from the audience during the Sept. 19 debate at the Museum of Contemporary Art in La Jolla. DANIEL K. LEW Road bridge, which has been proposed to relieve congestion on Genesee Avenue. Lightner said she does not support a bridge connecting the two sections of La Jolla Scenic Drive, which was removed from the community plan and is “not possible with today’s environmental concerns,” she said. She also said she does not support the Regents Road Bridge or widening of Genesee
Avenue. “I would much rather see traffic in University City be emptied through north University City than treat south University City as a freeway onramp to highway 52,” she said, noting $1.2 million in grants that has been allocated to get an initial segment of the Torrey Pines Road Corridor Project underway, including projects on the north and south sides of the road.
“We look forward to just slowing it down a little bit,” she said. Ellis, who has long eschewed the question of whether or not he supports the Regents Road Bridge, did not mention whether he supports that or the Scenic Drive connector bridge, only stating that city officials must first address the looming infrastructure upgrades it can’t currently pay for, such as water, sewer and road projects. Ellis, who questioned what results have come of the $1.2 million slated for Torrey Pines Road improvements, said he favors adding a pedestrian crosswalk and crossing signal at Princess Street, as well as narrowing traffic lanes along Torrey Pines Road, which would having a traffic-calming effect (the latter of which Lightner assured was part of the $26.5 million Torrey Pines Road Corridor Project). Regarding the pervasive stench emanating from the bluff at La Jolla Cove, Ellis said he “absolutely” believes the city and the District 1 council representative should take a

track record” advocating for public-private partnerships, including his stint on the Balboa Park Conservancy. “Government has clearly demonstrated that it can’t tackle a lot of issues in our community as it relates to quality of life, as it relates to the environment,” he said. “We’ve got to partner with willing philanthropists.

From Debate, A11 obtain a private bid for its median beautification project that was nearly onetenth the cost of what the city proposed to do the same work. “Something is wrong with that equation and we need to have a council member who’s willing to … ask serious questions,” he said. Regarding the passage of Proposition B — the city’s voter-approved pension reform initiative — the candidates were asked what principles they would follow to make pension decisions until the measure was implemented. As president of the city’s pension board, Ellis said he was championing pension reform before Lightner joined the city council. “Ms. Lightner, on the other hand, participates in the most expensive pension of any city employee,” he said. “I don’t know how you can sit across from a young policeman or a young firefighter and have a powerful discussion about pension reform, when you have the best deal going,” he said. “I’ve made it very clear that I will not take a city pension if I’m fortunate enough to be elected. “The city council could have implemented 80 percent of what’s in the (pension reform initiative),” Ellis said, stating that Lightner also could have worked to put the initiative on the ballot. “When asked by the Union-Tribune (U-T San Diego), ‘Did you think about that?,’ she responded, ‘Well, nobody asked me to.’ That is not the type of proactive, engaged leadership we need on a big issue here,” Ellis said, adding that the city’s $2.1 billion pension deficit “eats up” roughly 25 percent

A few light moments punctuated the fairly intense discourse. of its general fund. Lightner responded by stating that she was “the one up here whose actually implemented pension reform — and it was in concert with my colleagues and the mayor. It is why we have saved the city $1 billion since I’ve been elected. “We have capped salaries of the city employees by 6 percent; my staff and I took that cut as well,” Lightner said, adding that she would transition from a pension to a

401K-style retirement plan “as soon as I’m able to do that.” “We had a historic retiree healthcare agreement … (that) saved us the most of any contract in the city of San Diego with $800 million,” she added. Ellis characterized Lightner’s vote to deny City Attorney Jan Goldsmith’s request for outside legal counsel to defend Prop. B as part of the labor union’s veiled attempts to “gum up” the process and delay implemen-
tation of Prop. B. Lightner said she voted against outside counsel due to the vague nature of Goldsmith’s request. “He wouldn’t tell us what it was for, what the depositions were for, how long they were going to be entitled by this, and who was covered by it,” she said, noting that it would have cost “more than $250,000 of taxpayer money without any explanation of what it was for. “Of course I didn’t vote for it! “ she said. Asked whom the candidates favor in the mayoral race, Lightner said she “has had the pleasure” of working with Republican Carl DeMaio, but would be supporting fellow Democrat Bob Filner instead. “I believe he has a very fine understanding of the city and the region as a whole,” Lightner said. “He is very supportive of cross-border and port economic development, which I think is a key to our future in the region.” Though Ellis, a Republican, said he “purposely stayed out of the endorsement process,” he went on to state that he was “more in line” with fellow Republican Carl DeMaio on fiscal issues and pension reform. “I think I could help Carl with some other elements that the community faces,” he said. “I’m very concerned with Bob, and it doesn’t have anything to do with (his political) party or anything like that. When you have someone that says that Proposition B is a fraud, and then … now says that he’s the only one that can implement it, I have a hard time squaring that.” n Video: Watch the entire debate at http://bit.ly/district1debate

Will party preference dictate city council race in District 1? By KEEGAN KYLE Voice of San Diego The June 2012 primary election results from San Diego’s northwest council district resemble a sandwich. Northern areas like Carmel Valley and southern areas like La Jolla supported Republican challenger Ray Ellis. Central areas like Torrey Pines and University City supported the incumbent councilwoman, Democrat Sherri Lightner. The map (at right) illustrates the sandwich in District 1 in more detail. Democrat challenger Bryan Pease won the most votes in a couple precincts while Republican challenger Dennis Ridz won none. Since none of the four candidates got more than half the total vote in the district, the top two, Ellis and Lightner, advanced to the Nov. 6 runoff. The map underscores where they’ll need to work. Some of the biggest issues in District 1 include preserving parkland in Del Mar Mesa, adding fire stations in University City, smoothening sidewalks in La Jolla, smoothening streets in Carmel Valley and the proposed Regents Road Bridge across Rose Canyon.

Woltman Family Infusion Center opens at Scripps Mercy Hospital Community and health care leaders gathered in Hillcrest on Sept. 19 to celebrate the naming and opening of the Woltman Family Infusion Center, an outpatient service of Scripps Mercy Hospital San Diego that specializes in cancer care and treatment of other health conditions. The $1.3 million center is made possible by philanthropic support from the community, including a leadership gift from the Woltman family of La Jolla, who have had a long legacy of advancing Scripps’ efforts to provide patients with the latest medical advancements and individualized care. Located in the Mercy Clinic building at 4020 Fifth Ave., the 3,100-square-foot center shares the fourth floor with Scripps Cancer Center.
The new center offers 12 patient treatment stations, each with a recliner chair, seat warmer, Wi-Fi access and private television. The center also has an on-site pharmacy dedicated solely to the specialized needs of infusion clinic patients, which will help reduce treatment times. “We’re grateful for the support of the Woltman family to help bring this important new health resource to the community,” said Dr. William Stanton, medical director of Scripps Cancer Center at Scripps Mercy Hospital. “This center offers a large, comfortable environment for our patients. We’ve also added a research nurse to this center, which opens the door for our patients to participate in clinical trials.”

Since 1977 La Jolla Nurses Homecare La Jolla Nurses Homecare is proud to be celebrating their 35th year in La Jolla. It opened in 1977, on upper Girard Avenue by Mrs. Lorraine Salerno. It later moved to the Vons Center and now finally has been located in La Jolla Shores for many years. Mrs. Salerno saw a need for private duty homecare in our city and sought to fulfill that need. She was right! 35 years later, LJNH is still going strong in La Jolla, owned and operated by her daughter, Brittnei Salerno. “I believe our tenure in the community speaks well for us. We have had the opportunity to be of service to countless interesting individuals, including local and worldwide celebrities. It is the people we care for that makes this a fascinating industry,” says Salerno. “Our Mission is to provide high quality, very secure and the most compassionate home health care. We believe that patients heal faster and are happiest when they can stay in their homes.”

LAFCO was established by California state law 1985 for all counties in the state to discourage urban sprawl and facilitate efficient delivery of municipal services. LAFCO agencies also review and approve jurisdictional boundary changes, including secessions and annexations. Independent La Jolla organizers also plan to hold a fundraising gala at the La Jolla Women’s Club to support their secession efforts. Further details are forthcoming.
Homecare has changed quite a bit over the years, but their level of service and commitment has not. One of the ways La Jolla Nurses Homecare services are “a cut
above” many other homecare agencies is that they include, at no additional cost, an RN who supervises every case. The staff has many decades of experience, which adds to the expertise in which they select their caregivers, staff their cases, schedule shifts and give personal customer service to their clients. LJNH goes above and beyond to make sure their clients and families are satisfied and happy with the services. They are honored to service in and around the community of La Jolla that they love and have grown up in.

Nothing like a candid debate to put a vote in focus Our View
ou may think our coverage in this issue of the debate between District 1 city council candidates — incumbent Sherri Lightner (D) and challenger Ray Ellis (R) — is a bit over the top. But when you remember that the person who holds this office becomes our “first responder” in all matters La Jolla, you may reconsider. The Light hosted a debate between the candidates (one of the first that Lightner agreed to) on Sept. 19 at the Museum of Contemporary Art with some 200 residents on hand with questions for the candidates written on file cards. We could easily have passed the 90-allotted minutes to tackle all the issues the crowd hoped to hear about, but 9 p.m. arrived too soon. We intend to forward the
remaining questions to the candidates and print their answers in an upcoming issue. It was quite an intense debate. The candidates’ positions and personalities were out front for all to see, and those of you who missed the discourse can watch it in its entirety at lajollalight.com Thanks are due to both Sherri and Ray for their candid responses, and to the debate moderator, UCSD political science associate professor Thad Kousser, who kept things fair and forthright. More kudos must go to the tech folks at MCASD who made sure things ran smoothly, to reporter Pat Sherman who condensed the debate in the report online and on pages A10-A11 in this issue, to Daniel K. Lew who produced the online video, and to Melissa Macis and John Feagans who created the debate graphics.
Call for civility distracts voters from real issues What a nice commentary in the Sept. 20 issue from a very nice man at a very critical juncture in the political life of San Diegans — a call for civility in political elections. It’s something everyone can agree on. And it’s breaking out all over town. For $10 on Wednesday, Oct. 3 you can go over to USD to hear defeated mayoral candidate Nathan Fletcher and the head of the San Diego Taxpayers Association preside at a “Restoring Respect Fall Breakfast to Promote Civility” in the fall elections. It’s been my experience over 42 years here, that when the community’s political anesthesia starts to wear off, when voters start to care and worry actively about what their futures may hold, when the debate is defined — one or another of our nice business philanthropists trots out the “civility” diversion. But this call for “can’t-we-all-get-along” changes the subject, which is: What kind of San Diego are we going to get with one or another of these two mayoral candidates? Murray Galinson makes a nice appeal, but it redirects our attention from what really matters. Frances O’Neill Zimmerman La Jolla
Over-sized vehicles CAN be parked in driveways — that’s the problem! Mr. Donald’s letter/picture in the Sept. 20 issue highlights the visual pollution our city politicians neglect to address, thereby causing unsightly residential neighborhoods where over-sized vehicles (OVs) clutter up front yards as the picture amply shows. Parking an OV like this is subject to a different code section than parking such vehicles on streets, which the “editor’s note” addresses. The code allows what that picture shows! This code section needs to be changed to prohibit this

business owner here in the Village (Jewels by the Sea, 1237 Prospect St. #B), and I feel very strongly about preserving Casa Beach for the seals. I always have WONDERFUL feedback from locals and tourists alike when the seals are on the beach, and people can view them and enjoy them from a safe distance. Being able to watch the seals in their natural ways is not only an education, but also a relaxation for so many who visit and live in La Jolla. When the people are on the beach, and consequently the seals are not on the beach, I often get questions like “Where are the seals today?” and many people are disappointed. Please keep the rope up year-round, and let the seals have some peace, and the people have the joy of watching natures’ creatures in their natural habitat. Linda R. Jalving La Jolla
I was glad to see your coverage of the UCSD workshop on rising sea levels. I hope the second installment can address my question: Why is this phenomena considered so bad? The first paragraph says your reporter learned that the projected rise is up to 16 feet over the next 300 years. That’s six inches a year. Surely an increase so gradual will allow ingenious humans ample time to cope by avoiding new building near the coasts and, for the short run, protecting against erosion. I lived near the Sunset Beach section of Orange County for a few years where the homes are built too low and too close to the beach, causing flooding of these homes every few years when storms and high tides coincide. I wouldn’t buy there. Would you? As things get wetter, people will relocate away from the problem. Of course the Dutch have been engineering against these forces for hundreds of years, so I’m not too worried about our ability to make intermediate-term accommodations for this change. Jeffrey J. Denning La Jolla
Thank you for the wonderful article highlighting Muirlands’ teacher Mark Heinze. My children’s K-12 highlight was Mr. Heinze’s class where they both say that they not only learned a tremendous amount through the exploration of literature and writing, but where they also felt that they were in a classroom where the teacher truly cared about them. I am heartened to know that my nieces will soon have the opportunity to have Mr. Heinze as their teacher. Beth Stein La Jolla

LA JOLLA LIGHT - september 27, 2012 - Page A19
From Letters, A18 to see such shameless blocking of public, highly-trafficked views of the Shores and the Cove. Now, rather than a view that says, “Welcome to the beautiful Pacific Ocean” to visitors driving in from the north, we have a view that says, “Welcome to an industrial corridor.” We have been SIO donors and Birch Aquarium members for years, but this blatant disregard for the visual environment has caused me to lose all respect for SIO. I’m a past board member of the La Jolla Shores Association and a current board member of the city’s advisory board on the La Jolla Shores Planned District Ordinance (PDO). I’ve seen so many property owners bend over backward to help preserve public views, so I’m especially blown away at this horrific project. The complaints you published bring home a point that I’ve been raising with the city and community for over a decade: We need to find a way to REQUIRE story poles for remodels and new construction that boost building heights, especially ones that might impact public views. Developers and project applicants will whine about the cost (which is nominal, really). But the use of story poles
is the only way for thousands of passersby to see how big an impact a proposed project will have on the environment. Otherwise, projects will continue to get approved in small meetings attended by a handful of citizens, where subsequent complaints are “too little too late.” Dan Goese La Jolla
Publicity helps library grow programs, patrons Thank you La Jolla Light for being a friend of the La Jolla Branch (Riford) Library. Our Friends membership reception last week was a fun event with about 100 people enjoying art, music, books, and a sense of community. We appreciate your support. The articles you print about library events in the Light bring awareness to the library and what it offers the public. We did decide to sell books that afternoon, and out guests were pleased as we did a brisk business. Amy Threefoot Valeiras La Jolla
Rotting seaweed poses no danger By Ashley Mackin In a recent letter to the La Jolla Light, Bird Rock resident Karyn Meyer asked about the rotting seaweed found on the beach near her home. Her concerns included the cleanup of said seaweed and whether the gases emitted were toxic and dangerous to breathe. The area she specified was near Searidge Drive and Chelsea Street, north of Tourmaline beach. As promised, The Light did some investigating about her concerns. Dr. Russ Vetter, Director of the Fisheries Resources Division of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, said it is common for large amounts of organic debris, such as seaweed and kelp, to die this time of year. However, he added, “This year there has been a large pulse in organic debris.” Speaking of behalf of the Scripps Institute of Oceanography, assistant director of communications, Mario Aguilera, confirmed through his sources that the gas emitted from rotting seaweed is hydrogen sulfide, which is classified as toxic. An SIO scientist, who asked not to be named, said the higher temperatures of the summer months increase the rate of bacterial decay,
therefore more of a ”rotten egg smell” is emitted. He said that Scripps does not monitor or study the level of hydrogen sulfide in the air. The San Diego Air Pollution Control District also does not monitor hydrogen sulfide concentration levels along the beaches because it focuses on factories and businesses. Air Pollution Control Officer Robert Kard said he has experience with hydrogen sulfide through other avenues, and explained that the conditions at Bird Rock do not yield harmful levels. He explained hydrogen sulfide has a “low-odor threshold,” meaning humans can smell it, even in low concentrations.
He also said in open, ventilated space, such as at Bird Rock beaches, the concentration of hydrogen sulfide in the air is not harmful. Acknowledging the “rotten egg smell,” Kard said in closed spaces, such as sewers, hydrogen sulfide could be harmful, but not in a beach setting. Dan Daneri, District Manager for Shoreline Parks, a division of San Diego Park and Recreation, said the rocky area where much of the seaweed rots cannot be accessed with parks’ machinery; therefore Shoreline Parks does not clean that area. Seaweed and other debris are removed from areas to which they have access. However, Daneri said the smell becomes less of a problem when the temperature drops, and the rate of decay decreases. Vetter’s advice is to not disturb or move the seaweed to avoid the release of more hydrogen sulfide. Additionally, he said, it is the wave patterns in San Diego that disturb the seaweed in the water, furthering the release and carrying it to shore. “Our typical onshore flows, the ones that make San Diego so pleasant, carry the hydrogen sulfide to shore,” Vetter said.
James Alfred Babcock 1924 – 2012
Jim Babcock passed away on September 13, 2012. He was born May 24, 1924, in Stringtown, Texas, to Mae and George Babcock. A true Texan at heart, Jim grew up on a family farm during the Great Depression. Jim had adventure in his blood at an early age. Straight out of high school, he joined the Army Corps of Engineers and was assigned to Costa Rica to build bridges on the Inter-American Highway. Upon returning home, he joined the U.S. Marine Corps in 1941. Jim began a family with his beautiful wife, Patricia,
in Tacoma, Washington. Then he moved his family to La Jolla in 1964. He became a member of the La Jolla Country Club in 1966. He loved golf and played as often as he could. He was past president of the “Snow Goosers”, a men’s group, who played the finest courses in the world. Jim had a great gift of selling. Over the years, he mastered the ‘Art of the Deal’. He could sell anything to anybody. Through the various sales jobs, Jim became focused on the insurance business. When his business became affected by the Vietnam War, Jim became a stockbroker with Roberts, Scott & Co. in La Jolla in the early 70’s. As the war came to an end, he re-entered the insurance business and created a very successful brokerage agency with offices from coast to coast including Hawaii and Guam. He also founded an insurance company. Jim was a very hard working, fair and generous man. With his quick smile and vivid blue eyes, you would instantly feel welcomed by his warmth, entertained with his stories and humored by his sharp
wit. A favorite was in 1947, Sun Valley, Idaho, when Jim and his boyhood best friend, Malcom, had a chance meeting with Ernest Hemingway. They all drank wine, until they could drink no more. Living a full life, Jim traveled the world and was a licensed pilot who enjoyed flying and owned airplanes. His hobby was the stock market, where he traded stocks daily. He was a proud member of the Torrey Pines Christian Church. Jim is lovingly remembered by his children, Pam Babcock and Jimmy Babcock; daughter-in-law, Michele; grandchildren, Britton and Brando Babcock; and his brother, Foy Babcock. Jim was preceded in death by his loving wife, Patricia, and brother, George Mc Roy. Please join us for his Celebration of Life on Saturday, September 29, 2012, at 11 a.m. at Torrey Pines Christian Church. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Torrey Pines Christian Church.

Schools’ new recycling program gets an ‘A’ for effort By Steven Mihailovich La Jolla public school students are beginning the academic year with a new recycling program that is being adopted at all 180 schools in the San Diego Unified School District. The program comes from Recycle Across America (RAA), a non-profit organization that has seen its recycling enhancements implemented by a number of Fortune 500 companies, in just the two short years of its existence. More importantly for the cash-strapped school system, the $40,000 tab for the initiative was picked up by a donation from Kiehl’s, the New York-based company that has been making skin and hair products for 161 years. The new recycling program expects to increase recycling capture rates at schools by 50 percent without adding extra recycling bins or new complicated procedures or awareness lessons to students. The hope is based on the simplest of solutions — standardized labels on recycling containers. “The labels from RAA are great because they’re universal,” said Dayna Thompson, a parent volunteer for recycling and the Garden Club at Sprekels Elementary School. “They have pictures of what goes where. They make recycling effortless. It will definitely help students at the recycling cans without someone having to stand there and tell them ‘You need to put this item in that bin.’ ” While RAA’s standardized labels have been applied at K-12 public schools in Washington D.C. and Minneapolis, as well as at companies like NBC/Universal
Juliana Melusky is one of the first students to recycle under the new bin labels program. Dr. John Lee Evans, president of the San Diego Unified School District’s Board of Education, and children from Spreckels Elementary applaud Chris Salgardo (far right), president of Kiehl’s USA, for bringing the new recycling-bin label program to the county’s schools. PHOTOS BY Ivan Harris TV and film studios, Procter and Gamble, Caterpillar, Disney Motion Pictures, Hallmark and Johns Hopkins University among others, RAA founder and executive director Michelle Hedlund believes the adoption of standardized labels by San Diego schools will have an impact beyond the county’s borders. As a Michelle Southern Hedlund California native from Palos Verdes, Hedlund considers the addition of San Diego schools to be a win for the home team. “(Environmental) subjects are much more top of mind in California,” said Hedlund, who now resides in Minnesota. “It’s part of the culture. What happens in California transmits to the rest of the country.” San Diego learned about the RAA labels in June through the efforts of Janet

Dershowitz said Herringbone’s design still left the required amount of sidewalk space,
Whited, recycling specialist for the school district. By means of a “glitch,” Whited was connected to Kiehl’s, which offered to pay for the 60,000 labels needed for the recycling bins at more than 400 schools in the county. While the school system doesn’t monitor its recycling volumes, Whited said any improvement should be easily detected through the costs for hauling trash. The district spent $1.2 million last year and hopes to bring that total below $1 million. “The only way I can gauge progress is that we’re recycling so much that we need to order more (recycling pickups),” Whited said. “My goal is to increase recycling, which is free, and to decrease our trash tipping, which has a cost.” Kiehl’s joined the cause because it fit with the firm’s philanthropic profile, said company president Chris Salgardo. The company primarily targets the environment, children’s issues, and
while Puesto’s came up short. “The standard is eight feet,” he said. Dershowitz said the PDO committee and La Jolla Community Planning Association also sent a joint letter to city officials stating that the city is not “properly referring all projects within our planned district ordinance area in La Jolla for the community to review. “Some of the projects have been very significant in terms of the scope and have involved changes that have made an impact on the neighborhood,” he said. Asked if there was any legal requirement for the city to comply with this request, Dershowitz said there is not, “other than a sense of cooperation … that’s been lacking.

The company’s announcement coincided last week with the launch of its second freestanding store in San Diego at Westfield UTC. “What I love about RAA is that it is teaching kids at an early age,” Salgardo said. “Their (solution) wasn’t overly complicated and it made sense. I see it all the time. People throw all their recyclables in one bin and think they’re helping. But it’s going to a landfill.” The reason, said Hedlund, is because 60-70 percent of recyclable materials are rendered unusable when they become contaminated with trash. Even though recycling has become a mainstay in many American communities, capture rates haven’t improved in 15 years because of confusion at the bins. “Schools can’t afford simple things like this,” Hedlund said. “They end up asking teachers or parents to help. The biggest opportunity is to find

“So far we haven’t had any positive (response) from the city,” he said. n Shoddy sidewalk solution Egon Kafka with the streetscape committee suggested that people report instances of cracked or uneven pavement to the office of District 1 City Councilwoman Sherri Lightner. When potential trip hazards are reported, the city typically patches sidewalks with asphalt, he said. “I just think that looks so crummy,” Kafka said. “If your own block has got some problems like that I would encourage you to form a little group and pour some cement and do some repairs. It costs about $15 per square foot to remove sidewalk and replace it.”
it in the appropriate recycle bin without supervision. “Recycling is something that everyone needs to be doing and something that’s easily done,” she said. “By starting at elementary schools, it’s something that can become second nature to a new generation.”
In California, Kafka noted, sidewalk maintenance is the responsibility of the owner of the building adjacent the sidewalk. n Christmas Parade update UC San Diego’s new chancellor, Pradeep Khosla, has agreed to serve as grand marshal of this year’s Christmas Parade, set for 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 2. According to parade organizer Ann Kerr Bache, the 55th annual La Jolla Christmas Parade & Holiday Festival, “Christmas in the Village,” will cost about $55,000 to produce, including insurance and city fees, and is still in dire need of funding.

Coggan Family Aquatic Center marks 10 years Community invited to luau celebration at pool on Oct. 6 By Phil Dailey he Coggan Family Aquatic Center just turned 10 years old this month, but for La Jolla High School princi-
pal Dana Shelburne, it seems that it took just as long to get the idea of a pool at the school off the ground. It was the mid 1990s when Shelburne, saw there was something missing on the La Jolla campus. After spending a few years working in the Grossmont Union School District, Shelburne noticed that just about every school in San Diego’s East County had one thing in common — a 25-meter pool on campus.
But it wasn’t until the fall of 1999 — four years after Shelburne returned to La Jolla High — when the thought of getting a pool built on campus amounted to more than just a dream. Shelburne’s plan included realigning Fay Avenue and swapping land with the City of San Diego. Though Shelburne may get the lionsshare of the credit for the pool that now sits at the corner of Fay and Nautilus, he’ll
be the first to suggest it was not him alone who put the wheels in motion. “It’s one of those wonderful things where it doesn’t really matter who had the idea or where it got started, but when it happens it seems like it’s so natural that it should always have been there,” he said. Though it may have been Shelburne

Country Day falls flat at No. 1 Sierra Canyon High School Sports Report From staff reports It was a long night for the La Jolla Country Torreys (2-1) as Sierra Canyon (4-0), ranked No. 1 in California and riding a 18-game winning streak, proved to be as good as advertised as they beat La Jolla Country Day last weekend, 34-3. The Torreys opened the game with an impressive defensive stop of the Trailblazers and quickly took a 3-0 lead, thanks to a 21yard field goal by Leigh Wallace. The Torreys hung tough and ended the first quarter still clinging to that 3-0 lead. Sierra Canyon, however, gained control and started to get its offense rolling. With quarterback Eddie Garcia lost in the second quarter with a scratched eye, the Torreys could manage only a 5-of-25 passing night for 50 yards. Country Day didn’t run the ball any better, gaining 98 yards on 30 carries. Country Day’s next game is against Southwest San Diego Friday at LJCD. The JV will kickoff at 4 p.m. and the varsity at 7 p.m. La Jolla High falls to 0-4 on the season The La Jolla High Vikings lost 38-0 on the road last weekend to Santa Fe Christian. The setback was their fourth this season. “I was disappointed because we had been improving defensively,” head coach Rey Hernandez said. The team has been hit hard by injuries all

season long. Up next for the Vikings is a trip to Coronado on Friday night. Bishop’s notches win over Sage Hill The Bishop’s School improved to 2-2 on the season as the Knights dominated Sage Hill (Newport Beach) in a 48-13 win last weekend. The Knights will take on Bishop in the annual “Bish Bowl” at La Jolla High school Friday night. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m LJCD girls tennis off to 2-2 start The La Jolla Country Day girls tennis team — which is led by upperclassmen, Lindsey Jacobs, Danielle Devor, and Lauren Ross — has begun the season with a 2-2 record. The Torreys have beaten both Coronado (14-4) and Scripps Ranch (11-7), but have had tough losses against Westview (8-10) and Valhalla (6-12). The Torreys have been led by singles players, Devor, Ross and Kendal McGinnis, who have won most of their matches. While Jacobs and Olivia Martin have been taking control of their doubles matches. The Torreys also competed in the Dana Hills Tournament this season, where they finished fourth. The Torreys are gearing up for their own invitational this weekend, a round-robin format with La Jolla High and Rancho Bernardo also competing.

girls volleyball split a pair of matches last week. The Torreys topped San Pasqual 3-0, but later dropped a match at Cathedral Catholic. “The girls played very hard and I was very pleased with our progress to this point in the season” LJCD coach Peter Ogle said. The team begins league play Wednesday against Tri-City Christian at home. Friday the Torreys play at Bishops. La Jolla girls golf undefeated The La Jolla High girls golf team is off to a fast start with a 3-0 team record in league play. The Vikings took out San Diego (225255) and Coronado (220-236) last week to remain perfect on the season.
Freshman Madeleine Garay and junior Marissa Liang earned medalist honors in the two wins, respectively. “The girls have had a great run to start the season,” head coach Aaron Quesnell said. “They were undefeated through the nonleague schedule, and have started out 3-0 in league play.” The team has used its depth to stay perfect this season with four different girls capturing medalist honors. Along with Garay and Liang, the Vikings have had low scorers in junior Manci Rasmussen and sophomore Daniela Anastasi. The team gets set for another tough slate of matches this week as they take on Scripps Ranch, University City and Cathedral.

From Pool, A21 who gathered a select group of people in the fall of 1999 to get the project rolling, there are countless others who shared a key role in the project. Shelburne is quick to recall the efforts of former San Diego City Manager Jack McGrory, who knew the ins and outs of getting a public project off the ground. “It was Jack who had the connections and knew what had to be done,” Shelburne said. In 2001 the City of San Diego and the San Diego Unified School District agreed to a land swap and the realignment of Fay Avenue was completed. Within the agreement, the school district would lease the land where the pool was to be built. The pool is not owned nor operated by La Jolla High. Rather, it is operated by the La Jolla Aquatic Complex Foundation, under the direction of aquatic director Randy Franke. “This is a private pool run for the benefit of the high school and the La Jolla community,” Franke told the Light before last year’s Splash Bash. “It’s a unique situation where you have a 50-meter private swimming pool that’s on school district property.” Though it may be privately run, it is most certainly open to the public. Franke said the pool serves as many as 1,000 people on a daily basis. Shelburne got the right people to invest their time in the pool, but had it not been for the Coggan Family and their donation of $1.2 million in the early stages of planning, the pool may have never been built. “With that money in the bank, we became legitimate,” Shelburne said. “It wasn’t, ‘is this going to happen? Will this happen?’ It
was ‘this is happening because we had a million dollars towards the project.’” Not even a year after the pool broke ground it opened on Sept. 15, 2002. Roughly 15 years after Shelburne’s big idea, the Coggan Family Aquatic Complex is now the home of the LJHS’ boys and girls water polo and swim teams, La Jolla Water Polo, Wind N’ Sea Swim Club and the La Jolla Swim Masters. It is also used for physical education for both La Jolla High and Muirlands Middle School. “I think it underscores the need that was there,” Shelburne said. “We knew there was a pool up at the Y on Cliffridge. But it wasn’t a pool that suited the needs of a high school.” Prior to Coggan, student-athletes who swam or played water polo for the high school had to drive to the Lawrence Family Jewish Center for practice each day. Today’s students couldn’t even comprehend the idea of having to leave campus to go to the pool. Nor could most La Jollans comprehend not having the Coggan pool and all it has given to the community during the past 10 years. Celebrating the pool The Coggan Family Aquatic Complex is celebrating its 10th birthday Saturday, Oct. 6 with a luau staring at 5:30 p.m. Since the pool opened in 2002, it has been host to several world-class events, such as the USA National Team and NCAA teams in addition to hosting CIF championships.

East Coast transplant Linda Hensel enjoys new life in La Jolla Linda Hensel spent 25 years in Boston working as a media relations consultant for a range of clients including the PBS science series NOVA, the Boston Science Museum, the Boston Children’s Museum, The Nature Conservancy, Harvard University, and the government of Kuwait, to name a few. She also worked as a docent at the de Cordova Sculpture Park + Museum in Lincoln, Mass., and volunteered for the Newton Schools Linda Hensel Foundation, 826Boston, and the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. Hensel moved to San Diego in 2010 and currently works as a consultant to the Carter Center in Atlanta, the Costume Colloquium in Florence, Italy, and Gratitude Gift Bags of Solana Beach. She is a member of the San Diego Rowing Club in Mission Beach and is a board member of the San Diego Women’s Foundation. She graduated with a degree in English literature from the University of Colorado. Her two grown daughters work in New York City. What brought you to La Jolla? After spending 25 years in Newton, Mass., where I worked and raised my daughters, I decided it was time for a big change in my life. One of my dearest friends has lived in the San Diego area since the 1970s, so I finally followed her lead. I put my stuff on a moving van and joined her and her family and friends out here. No regrets! What might you add or improve in the area? If I could, I would fully fund and endow all San Diego’s museums so they could become worldclass institutions. If you hosted a dinner party for eight, whom (living or deceased) would you invite? On my guest list would be George Gershwin; Antônio Carlos Jobim; Dorothy Parker; Mark Twain; Man Ray; Hamilton Jordan; Paul Newman, as my date (sorry Joanne); and to prepare the dinner, Charlie Trotter, because he is a wonderful chef who would create a great meal and also because we attended the same high school in Winnetka, Ill. What are your five favorite movies? In no particular order they are “Diva,” “La Dolce Vita,” “Casablanca,” “Field of Dreams” and “Best in Show.”

Education La Jolla Art and Wine Festival moves to the Village this year By Ashley Mackin he La Jolla Art & Wine Festival (LJAWF), a benefit for the town’s public schools, is back for its fourth year, Oct. 13-14, with organizers promising that the event will be bigger and better than ever. For the first time, admission to the 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. festival will be free, thanks to a $40,000 investment from Wells Fargo Bank (although a $5 donation will be accepted at the entrances). And also for the first time, organizers have partnered with the La Jolla Village Merchants Association to move the event into the Village, on Girard Avenue between Prospect and Kline Streets. Muirlands Middle School joins the list of beneficiaries in 2012, which includes La

wares, the festival will feature wines and beers to sample, a silent auction, and lots of live, local entertainment. The wide range of children’s activities includes painting a car donated by Witt Lincoln, art and dance classes, games, chalk art, crafts, edible art, cartooning and a family scavenger hunt. Organizers expect more than 30,000 people to attend the festival over the two days. Sheila Fortune, executive director of the La Jolla Village Merchants Association, said the merchants are “extremely excited” about their partnership with LJAWF. “We applaud the festival’s strong commitment to our community, the schools it supports, as well as its desire to bring in more business to the merchants, which is
something aligned with our own goals.” LJAWF Founder Sherry Ahern added, “The La Jolla Art & Wine Festival’s partnership with the La Jolla Village Merchants Association has created this amazing symbiotic relationship in the community. It’s evident that the festival has fostered a new connection between the [over] 6,000 parents and [over] 3,000 local students with the local businesses. I’ve never felt such camaraderie for such an amazing, worthwhile cause. Now in our fourth year, it’s truly incredible how far this event has come.” Ahern explained that each of the schools gives $30,000 in seed money for the festival, and “LJAWF then takes the money in August, and at the end of October, we pay our bills and give the schools back their $30,000 and whatever extra net profit we’ve made. “We would love to make $220,000 this year. $120,000 would pay back the schools’ seed money, the other $100,000 would give each of the four schools $25,000.” Nancy Warwick, owner of

Monday, Oct. 8: 6:30-8 p.m.
Friday, October 5, 7:30 p.m.
Every summer the California surfing community enjoys the arrival of a long regular swell from the southwest. The origin of the swell is in the winter storms of the southern hemisphere, some in the Indian Ocean, halfway around the Earth. Join internationally renowned Scripps professor Walter Munk to learn how World War II and measurements of Guadalupe Island led to this discovery and what it means for surfers today.
Acoustic Evenings with Jefferson Jay have returned to the Athenaeum. Local San Diego legends will open the series.

The Ceviche contains citrus-marinated shrimp with chopped tomato, cilantro, onion, cucumbers, avocado and serrano chili.
Casa de Bandini serves Mexican favorites as a feast for the senses By Kelley Carlson trip to Casa de Bandini is like taking a vacation to Mexico — but without leaving your hometown. Previously located in Old Town, on the former homestead of Juan Bandini — a prominent San Diegan in the 1800s — the 32-year-old restaurant settled in at its current home in The Forum Carlsbad three years ago. Despite the move, “we brought the essence of Old Town to North County,” General Manager Gilbert Gastelum said. Much of the decor transferred with Casa de Bandini, including the bubbling, three-tiered fountain at the front of the establishment. Once guests walk through the front doors, they can detect the aromas of soft tortillas being freshly prepared at a station between the cantina and dining room. To the left of the entrance is the cantina, where customers can sit at high- or low-top tables, celebrate happy hour five nights a week, and watch sports on two TVs. The mirrored back bar displays wines and more than 30 tequilas, including Clase Azul — a brand that’s difficult to find in a restaurant. According to Gastelum, Casa de Bandini is one of only 10 restaurants in the country to offer it. The bar itself is fashioned of copper, with carved wooden rope detailing and moldings, and accented with oversized iron nails. Dangling from the ceiling are chandeliers in shapes such as stars, teardrops and globes. Against one of the walls is a large, 250-year-

Directly beyond the entrance is the orange-and-rust-hued dining room with hand-painted stenciling. One of the walls showcases ornate gold-leaf Peruvian mirrors. The room feels spacious, as it has an openbeam ceiling and plenty of windows. Handpolished wooden tables and chairs featuring colorful Oaxacan/Zapotec weavings dot the Saltillo tile floor. Next to the dining room is the Sala de Santos (“Saints Room”), often the site of parties. It’s decorated with figurines and artifacts of saints and cultural folk art from Central American countries, canvas oil paintings of archangels Gabriel and Michael, and an ornate altar of the Virgin of Guadalupe. In the patio, guests can drink and dine among succulents, cacti, Mexican arid agaves and exotic tropical plants. Pink
bougainvillea frame the doorways, and bees and hummingbirds are frequent visitors of the fountains. Yellow-and-orange umbrellas provide shade over the black metal-framed tables, and heaters are nearby if it’s chilly. At night, strings of multicolored lights overhead add to the festivity. The energetic Cielito Lindo mariachi group performs 6-9 p.m. Wednesdays and Thursdays. Tinku serenades guests 6-9 p.m. Mondays and Tuesdays, and also performs its Andean rhythms and Latin American favorites from noon to 4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. While evenings are lively, the daytime is more reserved and calm. The main menu is filled with more than 80 selections, including vegetarian, healthy and gluten-free options. Breakfast primarily consists of egg dishes. Among them are the Huevos Rancheros a la Bandini — fried eggs and corn tortillas with salsa española cheese, and grilled marinated top sirloin — and the Avocado Omelette Español with green chilies. Frequently ordered entrees include the Carnitas a la Michoacan, which are morsels of pork served with tortillas, guacamole, salsa and beans; Carne Asada Tampiqueña, composed of seasoned carne asada topped with mild green California chili and grilled onion; and the award-winning San Germán, which is seasoned shrimp sautéed with butter, brandy and chunks of pineapple and combined with a creamy wine sauce, over a bed of arroz amarillo, and served in a pineapple half.

Stunning performances take ‘Allegiance’ over the top If you go ■ What: ‘Allegiance — A New American Musical’ ■ When: Matinees, evenings, through Oct. 21
By diana Saenger
hen Sam Kimura (actor George Takei) is visited by a strange woman who brings him a box from his recently departed sister, his world is once again turned upside down. Sam hasn’t seen or spoken to his sister in 60 years and he’s more angry than sorrowful about this intrusion into his life. Yet when he opens the box to see what Kei Kimura (Lea Salonga) thought he should see, the old man makes a journey back in time. Dynamic dialogue, backed by passionate energy to spotlight an injustice, lead to stimulating performances in The Old Globe Theatre’s world premiere of “Allegiance — A New American Musical.”
■W here: The Old Globe Theatre, 1363 Old Globe Way, Balboa Park ■ Tickets: From $26 ■ Phone: (619) 234-5623 ■ Web: TheOldGlobe.org By way of flashback, the audience meets young Sammy Kimura (Telly Leung) a lively young lad helping out on his family’s farm in California. Although his mother is no longer alive, Sammy gets wonderful love and guidance from his sister Kei. His father Tatsuo (Paul Nakauchi) harbors ill feelings about Sammy, blaming his birth for the loss of his wife. Filling out the family is patriarch and grandfather Ojii-san, also played by Takei. Everything is fine on the farm until the day Japan
attacks America and all Japanese residents in America — whether American citizens or not — are ordered into internment camps. Packing what few possessions they can take and selling the farm for one-tenth of what it’s worth, the family arrives at camp where they must all share one small room. Many lost their spirits and will to live because of this treatment. Buoyed by Kei’s spirit to survive (wonderfully infused by Salonga) each family member has a different reaction to the situation. Sammy, an American citizen, believes he will help get his family released if he signs up to fight in the war. He also falls for Hannah (Allie Trimm), the camp nurse, who gives him the determination to fight the good fight and return. Leung’s portrayal of Sammy shows him perky when he’s cheerleading the internees, strong when leading his platoon, and obstinate when feuding with his family. Part of that feud evolves when Kei falls for Frankie Suzuki (Michael K. Lee), a hipster internee who is
Lea Salonga (Kei Kimura), Telly Leung (Sammy Kimura), George Takei (Ojii-san and older Sammy) and Paul Nakauchi (Tatsuo Kimura) provide passionate performances in the world premiere of ‘Allegiance — A New American Musical’ at The Old Globe. Henry DiRocco outraged at what America has done to his people and rallies a group of protestors who will go to jail before fighting for the Americans. He, too, has stolen Kei’s heart, which causes a big riff in the family. Kei has a tough job staying faithful to her clan, continuing to be a surrogate mother to Sammy and also becoming one of the activists in the camp. The set and staging of “Allegiance” is fantastic. The scene where Sammy and his men are at war is one of the most vivid war scenes I’ve seen on stage.

The story is told with the addition of many songs, of which the most memorable are “Going Places,” “With You,” and “Sacrifice.” Salonga, the standout lead voice, has a rich vocal history, including the voice for Princess Jasmine and Fa Mulan in the Disney movies “Aladdin” and “Mulan,” as well as appearing in Broadway’s “Les Misérables” and “Miss Saigon,” which earned her a Tony and Olivier Award. Paul Nakauchi is brilliant as the father whose will and traditions do not bend, even when they mean losing a
family member’s love and allegiance. The play also has brilliant lines of humor that provide a welcome relief from the heavy topic. Most are delivered with much aplomb by Takei (“Star Trek,” “Larry Crowne”), who brings everything he has to the stage — in part because he can relate to this story. He and his own family were in an internment camp. From a beam of happiness in his garden to a tear of regret about the family riff, Takei delivers an amazing character, and reminds us why he’s an American treasure.

Mamet’s words still ring true with fine cast of ‘Glengarry Glen Ross’ at the Playhouse If you go ■ What: ‘Glengarry Glen Ross’ ■ When: Matinees, evenings, Sept. 18Oct. 21 ■ Where: Sheila and Hughes Potiker Theatre, La Jolla Playhouse, UCSD campus
By Jessica Ordon
wo things are impossible to miss on entering the Potiker Theatre at La Jolla Playhouse for a performance of “Glengarry Glen Ross.” First, there are the massive, fading billboards mounted above the stage. One features a worn-out, barely discernable “Jaws” movie ad (appropriate for the early 1980s setting), and the other champions the Morton Salt girl as the “Taste of Chicago.” The second eye-popping element in the theater is a tank full of live goldfish onstage, a decorative piece in the run-down Chinese restaurant where the first act occurs. As “Glengarry Glen Ross” unfolds, the image of goldfish frantically out-swimming each other in a confined tank keeps coming back.
■ Tickets: From $15 ■ Phone: (858) 550-1010 Peter Maloney, Manu Narayan, Johnny Wu and Ray Anthony Thomas in La Jolla Playhouse’s production of ‘Glengarry Glen Ross,’ by David Mamet, directed by Christopher Ashley, running through Oct. 21. Craig Schwartz David Mamet’s real-estate salesmen are desperate people, consumed by ambition to achieve the American Dream, trapped in an unfair system. They beg, lie, and steal to win a company contest for the most closings (signed realestate deals), all the while manipulating each other for their own personal gain. This canonical American drama is a tank filled with sharks and the bitter taste of salt. Mamet’s signature as a playwright is his stinging dialogue, at once full of musicality, humor, and vulgarity. Director Christopher Ashley’s talented cast rises magnifi-
cently to the challenge of speaking Mamet’s text. The mesmerizing rhythm the actors create with their words carries the show to its swift ending, an abrupt halt like a sharp intake of breath. Manu Narayan gives an energetic performance as Richard Roma, a character made up of off-color charm, luck, and lies. Closely following him is Peter Maloney, a veteran actor of Mamet’s work, as Shelley Levene. Maloney’s fumbling, washed-up Levene is the ideal blend of pitiable and funny, played with just enough humor to make the audience laugh without ever

actually liking the character. Ray Anthony Thomas also shines as George Aaronow, a struggling salesman who, unlike Levene, does compel audible sympathy from the audience. Overall, the cast delivers an excellent execution of a tough-to-swallow play. Ashley’s staging is likewise smart and precise. Rather than frame real-estate sales and the American Dream as primarily white, middleaged men’s concerns, the cast of this production is multiracial, a more realistic and contemporary treatment of the play. Todd Rosenthal’s set design is incredibly detailed
■ Website: lajollaplayhouse.org and evocative of the sleazy Chicago real estate scene, down to the busted seats in the Chinese restaurant and rusting metal filing cabinets
in the firm’s office. It is interesting to note how the play dates itself, though, in spite of its continued popularity. For example, the theft of landline phones and typewriters from the realestate office upends everyone’s business for the day, an almost nostalgic reminder of a time without cell phones and laptops. Although this gives the play’s age away, it does so in a way that credits the piece’s endurance. That Mamet’s “Glengarry Glen Ross” still proves provocative, startling, and raw almost 30 years after it was first produced is a testament to the vivacity and view-worthiness of this piece.

Artist brings a sense of black humor to surreality shows By Lonnie Burstein Hewitt Now that it’s fall, here’s something to fall for: two fascinating shows featuring the work of Marianela de la Hoz, a Mexican artist who has been living in North County for the past decade. South of the border, her style might be called “magic realism.” Here, we’d call it “surreal.” De la Hoz, who uses egg tempera (a labor-intensive medium popular in the Middle Ages) to create striking miniatures, illustrates subjects that might seem familiar to medieval monks. But she puts a 21st-century spin on the ancient themes. She is currently one of seven artists featured in Mesa College Art Gallery’s eye-popping “Seven Deadly Sins” exhibition, where she has eight, postcard-size pieces on view — one for each sin, and one for the devil, the Seducer who introduced humans to sin. The pieces are wickedly amusing, and wickedly well painted in tiny hairline

brushstrokes that invite close attention to the details. They’re a thoughtful response to the message they convey. In the show’s catalog, De la Hoz confessed to expressing violence through fantasy, black humor, even sarcasm. “My work is based on reality and the paintings confront today’s troubled times,” she wrote. “I am inspired by ... the eternal combination of good and bad in everyone, the Dr.
Jekyll and Mr. Hyde within ourselves.” What her work is really based on is the strict Catholicschooling of her girlhood. “The nuns taught me everything was horrible, that all men were sinful, and the only good thing a woman had was her virtue, which men were always trying to take from her,” she said. “Ten years of therapy brought me back to life, and I started painting. Now I’m glad I went to that school, because it gave me my themes.” When an artist friend told her about egg tempera, it was love at first sight. She learned the basic technique from a how-to book by Renaissance artist Cennino Cennini. She kept reading and practicing and never looked back. Mesa Gallery Director Alessandra Moctezuma — a direct descendant of the Aztec emperor — has been following De la Hoz’s work for years. “She taught herself how to work like the Old Masters, mixing pure powder pigments with egg

It’s very time-consuming and expensive. But Marianela’s pieces are so refined.” The recent heatwave presented new problems, with the temperature soaring so high that the egg yolks cooked. De la Hoz had
to add a more modern ingredient — ice cubes — as she put the finishing touches on “Heaven and Earth,” the altarpiece for her solo show at San Diego Museum of Art that will go on display Oct. 13, in conjunction with a 15thcentury “Madonna and
Child” by Carlo Crivelli. “Heaven and Earth,” which took the artist a year of 10-hour days and 7-day weeks to complete, is made up of 11 paintings — 10 smallish ones surrounding a four-foot-tall centerpiece she

EXPERT ADVICE ‘Sloth’ is another of de la Hoz’s ‘Seven Deadly Sins.’ Maurice Hewitt
FROM ARTIST, B10 calls “the biggest miniature I’ve ever painted.” It portrays a very modern Eve, surrounded by life choices — the seven sins again, and their equally sinful opposites: Pride and SelfHatred; Wrath and Masochism; Greed and Superficial Charity; Envy and Idolatry; Gluttony and Anorexia; Lust and Repression; Sloth and Hyperactivity. It is full of delightfully irreverent Marianelisms: God resting from creation in a hammock while Eve and Lilith (her dark side) feed Adam an apple; then the apple transmuted into apple pie, food for judgmental friars. And the baby on Mother Eve’s belly is the artist’s grandson, reaching out to the baby Jesus in Crivelli’s “Madonna and Child.” There’s an apple in the

Anxiety is never funnier than when ‘Mistakes Were Made’
Felix (Phil Johnson) has problems balancing it all in ‘Mistakes Were Made.’ Courtesy
By Diana Saenger One man’s obsession for staging a show about the French Revolution soon turns into a frenzied mania that just might be his undoing in “Mistakes Were Made,” having its West Coast premiere at Cygnet Theatre through Oct. 21. Under the direction of Shana Wride, San Diegobased actor Phil Johnson tackles Craig Wright’s zany script. It’s a challenge, but Johnson has the skills to pull it off. His credits include Broadway’s “Les Miserables,” touring productions of “Les Miz” and “Miss Saigon,” “Putnam County Spelling Bee,” “Don’t Dress for Dinner,” and many more. Johnson’s work as a standup comedian, roles in films and TV, as well as his experience in writing, producing and heading comedy shows all across the country (including his original solo plays, like “Say Cheese”), have earned him awards
If you go ■ What: ‘Mistakes Were Made’ ■ When: Matinees, evenings through Oct. 21 ■ Where: Cygnet Theatre, 4040 Twiggs St. in Old Town ■ Tickets: $29-$54 ■ Box Office: (619) 337-1525 ■ Website: cygnettheatre.com and recognition. All of which have helped Johnson identify with this character. “Felix isn’t very far from me,” Johnson said. “I think every performer ends up chasing after things. Because acting is a weird life, you end up approaching things as a little bit of your own personal salesman. “This play is a funny look at obsession from an American point of view, and how far some will go to get that one thing they really want.”
Because Felix is having difficulty in getting what he wants, he goes out on a limb and is in danger of falling. “He’s a theater producer so how big a consequence can he get into?” Johnson said. “But Felix gets into big trouble when he becomes so desperate he attempts to raise money overseas.” Getting in over one’s head and reaching desperate measures is something today’s audiences can relate to. “Exactly. Felix is very much a person of today,” Johnson said. “We’re all on smart phones and finding ways to jam more work into every crevice of our lives. It’s a tough thing to look at your own life and ask, ‘when is it really enough?’ Felix works hard and makes work the absolute ultimate of his life to the detriment of everything else around him.” Misguided ambition has dire consequences as Felix eventually discovers. But can he rebound?
“The story gets complicated, but everything Felix does, he feels justified in doing,” Johnson said. “He ends up losing everything that’s important to him, including his family.” A lot of humor and a character with a good heart is what Johnson found intriguing about this story. “Because it’s based on a theatrical production, it has very funny elements to laugh at like actors, producers, movie stars, and divas. “I think Felix is smart and essentially a sweet guy. He’s not doing this for the money. He’s doing it for his self-respect and for something he wants very badly — to have a play on Broadway. “The story is not cliché at all. Felix is his own creation; a smart New Yorker-type, who is also a feeling and caring fellow, and that’s what gets him into trouble sometimes. But we care for him, too, and when he falls, we fall with him.”

Live Here. Give Here. Bart Mendoza
Three acoustic nights return to the Athenaeum this fall From Museum reports Each of the three programs in the Acoustic Evenings with Jefferson Jay series features three performers who stick around for a post-concert reception at the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library, 1008 Wall St., La Jolla. Musician/presenter Jay hosts the 7:30 p.m. shows to advance the Athenaeum’s commitment to supporting San Diego talent. n 1) Friday, Oct. 5: Local legends Jack Tempchin, Hugh Gaskins, and Jeffrey Joe Morin kick-off the series. Tempchin has cowritten five multi-platinum hits for the Eagles — “Peaceful Easy Feeling,” “Already Gone,” “The Girl from Yesterday,” “Somebody,” and “It’s Your World Now.” His songs have been used in films like “Thelma & Louise” and “The Big Lebowski,” and have been performed or recorded by George Jones, Emmylou Harris, Dwight Yoakam, Glen Campbell, Chris Hillman, Jackson Browne, the Paladins, Tanya Tucker, Kate Wolf, Tom Rush, Richie Havens, Glenn Frey and Jim James, among others. Gaskins will perform on acoustic guitar, acoustic bottleneck slide, harmonica, and electric lead guitar. His style is a fusion of blues with rockabilly and mountain music influences thrown in, along with a return to early influences such as gospel, Elvis, John Lee Hooker, Robert Johnson, and Big Joe Williams. Morin’s guitar and harmonica skills, along with his never-ending knowledge of standards, have resulted in stage sharing with some of the best musicians in San Diego. “He is a wonderful one-man act, sending speckles of stardust into the universe with every heartfelt song,” according to critics. n 2) Friday, Oct. 19: The night features return visits by Bart Mendoza and Chris Zach, and new to the series, Cory Wilkins. Mendoza is native San Diegan. He spent the 1980s as frontman for mod rockers Manual Scan, the ’90s with power-poppers, The Shambles, and currently performs with True Stories. Mendoza has penned songs for dozens of artists worldwide. His song “Survive,” co-written with Danish producer/
Tickets ■ Series (3 concerts, 9 performers): • $30 members/students • $45 non-members ■ Single concert: • $12 members/students • $17 non-members ■ Phone: (858) 454-5872 ■ Online: ljathenaeum.org/acoustic musician Jeppe Riddervold, won the 2003 EMI Publishing Award in Berlin. Singer/songwriter/guitarist Wilkins has a soulful voice and a guitar style drawn from his blues and rock roots. Blind since birth, he has pursued music since age 14. Wilkins has independently released four CDs, most recently, “San Diego Summer” and “Turn Up The Band.” As the lead singer for the band For The Faint, Zach displays energy and a message he is not afraid to talk about. His music, his attitude, and his faith are what makes For The Faint a must-see band. n 3) Friday, Nov. 2: Performers Nancy Truesdail, Will Edwards, and Regina Leonard to the library. Truesdail will perform the music of her late husband Don Truesdail, who developed four concept albums: “Dasvidanya Bingoland ... Hello Nancy!” “Enervator,” “Schmooze Tales” and “Adaptations Arcana Americana-Resetting Forgotten Gems.” Born in Zimbabwe and raised across America, Edwards “embodies the traveling troubadour.” His music is grounded in the traditions of American folk, rock, jazz, blues and roots music, but expands to include contemporary instrumentation and subject matter such as isolation, family ties, hope, and faith. Leonard is a Los Angeles-based singer/ songwriter with roots in soul and folk music. Whether playing with a band or just her guitar, she has captivated audiences all over southern California and the Southeast.
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.

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. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. P982309 9/20, 9/27, 10/04/2012. LJ1205

The result is a decidedly upscale, relaxed and old La Jolla beach feel that includes a natural color pallet of blues and tans, weathered wood furniture, seashell accents, and even an elegantly casual chandelier crafted out of thick rope. Willis Allen’s CEO and President Andrew E. Nelson said the new décor reflects the lifestyle that so many people love about living in San Diego. “San Diego’s pristine beaches, outdoor activities, natural beauty and laidback attitude are all a result of the city being defined by the Pacific coastline,” Nelson said. “Since Willis Allen has been synonymous with San Diego real estate for Chuck Helsel La Jolla Light Ad.pdf 4/23/2012 2:05:14 PM more than 98 years, it only made sense for our office to reflect a nautical theme.

invite people to stop by and check it out!” Willis Allen Real Estate, an independent and family-owned brokerage, was founded in 1914 by businessman Frederick L. Brown. In 1924, the company helped found the Real Estate Broker’s Association of La Jolla (REBA) created to promote industry ethics and professionalism. In 1940, the company’s namesake, Willis Allen, Sr., bought the business, changed the name, and grew with the city. Under his strategic stewardship the company opened its second location in Rancho Santa Fe in 1952 and expanded to Del Mar in 1973. In 1981, current CEO and President Andre3w E. Nelson took the helm. Under his leadership the company, which he bought in 1995, has more than doubled in size and added additional offices in Coronado, Downtown San Diego, Fallbrook and Point Loma.
