BY ASHLEY MACKIN A project to landscape and add a pedestrian-activated blinking crosswalk across Girard Avenue was introduced at the Feb. 8 La Jolla Village Merchants Association (LJVMA) meeting, and will soon make the rounds to La Jolla’s Traffic & Transportation advisory board, La Jolla Planned District Ordinance review committee and La Jolla Community Planning Association. LJVMA executive director Sheila Fortune presented the project as one that would “enhance the existing pedestrian crossing on Girard Avenue between Silverado and Wall streets with landscaping and adding a crossing signal,” she said. Paul Benton, of Alcorn & Benton Architects, spoke on behalf of an anonymous group that wishes to initiate and fund the project. “This is a concept found in the La Jolla Community Plan,” he explained, “but this is also something that can really affect the merchants and I want to get as much feedback as possible. I don’t want anyone to feel blind-sighted by a design concept you didn’t know about. “Girard is an extremely wide street and part of the problem with crossing in the crosswalk is, as soon as people step out, SEE GIRARD AVE., A8
Airplane noise protestors escalate community action BY MARÍA JOSÉ DURÁN A group of La Jolla residents, who are fighting an increase in airplane noise in various neighborhoods in the community, were busy last week spreading information, taking the floor at community meetings, circulating a petition to “stop commercial jetliner noise in La Jolla” and drafting a document answering residents’ questions about the issue. La Jolla Light had access to one of the document’s final drafts, which reports how arriving aircrafts flying over La Jolla Shores have, over time, followed the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) procedure more closely. Flights used to enter the local airspace from different points up and down The Shores coast and now they are concentrated

“My dad was in a destitute situation and Coleman told him, ‘California is very nice and you can get work here.’ So my dad arrived in La Jolla on April 13, 1937,” said Donald Epps, who wrote the chapter “Ebony in La Jolla: The Fabulous Forties” in the book, “La Jolla, California Black Pioneers and Pioneer Descendants 1880-1974.” Thad Epps started his life in the community working for his brother-in-law, and finally earned enough to buy property on Eads Avenue, north of Pearl Street, circa 1943. By this time, La Jolla’s small African-American community was made up of domestic workers and a few entrepreneurs who rented rooms to other black people and ran hauling or gardening businesses. Donald Epps explained, “My dad started his own business, too, he patterned his after Coleman’s. Coleman was really kind of a pioneer for this area, SEE BLACK PIONEERS, A20

La Jolla Rec Center (now 102 years old) houses events for all ages at 615 Prospect St.
SuperStar Gymnastics will return to La Jolla Rec Center with summer camp programs.
Rec Center program changes ahead
Holiday dance canceled, kids gymnastics camp returns BY ASHLEY MACKIN Those who enjoy the activities offered at La Jolla Rec Center will see some changes in the program lineup in 2017, with the return of a gymnastics camp, the loss of the holiday senior dance, and more, as discussed during La Jolla Park & Recreation, Inc.’s Jan. 31 meeting. The board also helps manage the adjacent La Jolla Tennis Club, and reviewed a repair project necessitated by recent rains that it would embark on as soon as funding is available.
SuperStar is back
SuperStar Gymnastics, which offered
summer camps and regular classes at the Rec Center for 13 years, was recently cut due to scheduling conflicts and low turnout, but owner Katie Pentland made a presentation to the board hoping to be reinstated. The board approved the return, but for summer camps only. After showing a promotional video about the program that was filmed at the La Jolla Rec Center, Pentland explained, “I was devastated when my contract was cut, but I understand there was a conflict of dates and a miscommunication where I had another class and didn’t know I had a class scheduled here (so I didn’t show up) ... and the minimums weren’t always being met. But
I’m willing to reduce my minimums as a compromise.” The summer camp will consist of two sessions: one for ages 3-5 in the morning and another for older children that lasts all day. “My camp includes gymnastics, dance and cheer, with performances at the end. There are also theme days, such as Diva Day and Pirate Day that the kids enjoy,” she said.
Farewell holiday dance
After a brief discussion on scheduling the Rec Center’s regular senior citizen dances — themed Cinco de Mayo, Aloha Luau, and Holiday — the board unanimously opted to do away with the December event.
“One of our biggest expenses, believe it or not, is party supplies for events we do throughout the year,” said Park & Rec chair Cindy Greatrex. “And we tend to overpay because we buy the supplies at the last minute to meet the theme. If you buy Christmas supplies in March, they are much cheaper than they are in November. I thought we should create a schedule of how many senior dances we want to have in 2017, and their themes, so we can shop in advance and publicize the event in advance.” However, member Bill Robbins noted, “The Holiday Dance has low attendance … in La Jolla, there are other Christmas events SEE REC CENTER, A15

horse racing industry,” said LJVMA executive director Sheila Fortune. “(As part of the weekend) they are going to put on events up and down the coast from Encinitas to La Jolla. So we are looking at having three events in The Village.” Representatives from the Breeders Cup were not in attendance at the LJVMA meeting. (In thoroughbred racing, the Breeders’ Cup World Championships is the culmination of the horse racing season worldwide and the $6 million Breeders’ Cup Classic is the defining event of the international racing season. Learn more at breederscup.com) Although just concepts at this time, Fortune said the three events would likely be a Dick Enberg Boys & Girls Club recognition gala for 400 people (Enberg reportedly called the first Breeders Cup race, and because he lives in La Jolla and recently retired, organizers want to honor him); an art/food/wine walk along a yet-to-be-determined La Jolla street; and a viewing party, which could be at a few different bars. Venues for each of these events have not been determined. “People fly in from all over the world for this event … and we want to capture them after the races close at 5 p.m.” Fortune said. “These people are going to need a place to eat, work out, listen to music, shop and galleries to visit. They have a lot of income and we would love to show them where to spend it.” Acting chair Brett Murphy added, “La Jolla could be a big beneficiary here.” It would be up to La Jolla businesses to facilitate the events. For the proposed food/wine/art walk, board member Claude Anthony Marengo recommended taking an entire street, closing it off, and having the restaurants nearby provide the provisions. Fortune added that organizers reportedly also appreciate La Jolla’s density of galleries, so they would want to include local art vendors. Additional meetings have been scheduled with the Breeders Cup and more details are forthcoming.

■ Eddie V’s represented: In accordance with recently revised bylaws, which allow the board to appoint a delegate in the event one of the board’s trustees can no longer attend meetings, the board sat Eddie V’s manager Rani Chatha. “Any sitting director who has changes in their employment situation or schedule can recommend another delegate in the company to take their place. Such is the case today, and Christophe Cevasco (of Eddie V’s), has written to petition and allow Rani Chatha to sit in his place,” Fortune explained. A motion to approve the change passed and she was promptly sworn-in. ■ T&T appointee: Laurnie Durisoe, manager of the Pantai Inn, will serve as one of the LJVMA representatives on La Jolla’s Traffic & Transportation advisory board. She replaces Richard Walker, who lost his T&T eligibility when his term ended this year. ■ DecoBike opposition: Like many other organizations in La Jolla, LJVMA opposed the installation of DecoBike bike share-kiosks in the Village in 2013. The board voted unanimously to re-affirm its opposition. “DecoBike does not belong in our Village because of safety issues (the kiosks do not provide helmets or bike locks), the violation of our Sign Ordinance with their advertising billboards and conflicts with local merchants,” Fortune said. But with the City planning to proceed with the installation of at least 12 kiosks in La Jolla, she added, “We drafted a letter asking that La Jolla not be included in the DecoBike program.” The letter will be sent to San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer, City Attorney Mara Elliott and all City Council members.
Vegetation removed along I-5 to prepare for trolley construction In a project that began last week, contractors working on the Mid-Coast Trolley extension are removing trees and shrubs from the Caltrans right-of-way next to the southbound lanes of Interstate 5 (the west side of the freeway from the La Jolla Village Drive off-ramp to the Nobel Drive off-ramp) in the future path of the trolley project. This work will require traffic controls, including installation of temporary barricades along the west side of southbound I-5. The vegetation removal work is anticipated to last approximately two months. Upon completion of all construction activities required in support of the Mid-Coast Trolley project in this location, vegetation will be planted. Once complete, the Mid-Coast Trolley project will extend service from Old Town to the University City community, serving the VA Medical Center, UC San Diego, and the busy commercial and residential districts along Genesee Avenue. Major construction work began in 2016, with service expected to begin in 2021.

Scripps Building ‘B’ expansion plans please Shores community BY MARÍA JOSÉ DURÁN The expansion and renovation of the former National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) fisheries building on the north side of the Scripps campus — aka Building “B” — attracted the attention of the community during the La Jolla Shores Association (LJSA) meeting, Feb. 8. Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) Assistant Vice-Chancellor of Marine Sciences, Steven Gallagher, presented the project in front of an attentive room. “We are hoping to get you a sensitive proposal here, get your feedback and move forward with construction in the facility in the fall,” he said, adding that SIO personnel had been especially careful when planning the impact
on the view corridor from La Jolla Shores Drive. “Everybody learned from the MESOM building experience,” said La Jolla Community Planning Association (LJCPA) trustee Janie Emmerson, who was present at
the meeting, referring to the controversy that followed the construction of a a laboratory just south of the project’s site. In 2012, LJCPA requested SIO remove a story from the MESOM building when board members noticed the height of the construction was bigger than the project presented to the community. Gallagher went over several renderings, site plans and even offered a video to show that the expansion doesn’t affect the view corridor. “We wanted to spend a lot of time looking at the site impact, we drove down the site, walked down the site, so the impact on the views down the road was minimized.” The project calls for the reconversion of the NOAA fisheries building into
laboratories for SIO students, and the building of a 100-student forum and classroom, plus a café on the northern side. “The footprint of the café will be hidden behind plants and the existing facility is almost hidden, too, behind trees,” Gallagher said. The design by local firm Safdie Rabines Architects, Gallagher continued, follows the line of the Scripps Forum for Science (8610 Kennel Way), created by the same company. As for the existing building, which features a Mid-Century Modern style, the only changes will be the installation of safety glass rails and new doors. The seafood-inspired café will be open to the community and, according to Gallagher,

Also, the venue will be available for weekend events, chiefly weddings, Gallagher explained. “It will take some pressure off the Scripps Forum. I think this is going to be significant competition to the Forum because the view is stunning,” he said, adding that having an outside source of revenue will help the institution pay for the building’s maintenance. Where a concrete parking lot stands now, the project will feature an elevated terrace

Native plants will serve as landscaping, and benches and other amenities will be installed. The site includes a lookout that will be improved and connected to a coastal trail that runs through the Scripps campus. “I live in La Jolla Shores, too, and I often walk up through campus with my wife. It would be lovely to go up (the coastal path) and continue through this site and then up to the top of the campus,” Gallagher said.
In other LJSA news: ■ Walter Munk Way: Trustee Terry Kraszewski announced the board’s intentions to designate the street that runs by the La Jolla Shores boardwalk as “Walter
Munk Way.” The internationally known SIO scientist will celebrate his 100th birthday this year. “Saying, ‘Thank you for being such a remarkable person’ is a challenge. (We hope this is) a remarkable way,” Kraszewski said. The sidewalk by Kellogg Park, which was recently discovered to be a public street, is currently known as La Vereda, Spanish for pathway. ■ Short-term rentals, Cove Stench: District 1 City Council member Barbara Bry told the Shores board that she’s working to move the short-term vacation rentals issue forward. “I’m fine if people rent a room in their house to make ends meet, as long as they’re onsite or the owner is on vacation. What I’m against is houses in residential neighborhoods

Bry added that she’s been collaborating with Council member Lorie Zapf (District 2) to bring local regulations, and counts on the support of the City Attorney Mara Elliott. Regarding the sea lion issues at La Jolla Cove, Bry told the board, “The Mayor wants to see the Coastal Management Study by Doyle Hanan before the City takes steps toward dealing with the sea lions.

FROM GIRARD AVE., A1 they are slowing down traffic and there are safety issues. So we propose the installation of a pedestrian-activated blinking signal similar to that found on La Jolla Boulevard near Westbourne and along La Jolla Boulevard in Bird Rock (to accompany the existing crosswalk lines in the street).” Benton added that the plans still need “to be worked out with engineering,” and rather than present formal renderings, he offered sketches of how the spot would look with some greenery. “This could also be an area of beautification … there is a little triangle area (created by the diagonal parking spaces where there is no parking) and we want to fill that with landscaping. Our goal is to not lose any parking spots.” Benton said the landscaping and irrigation would be funded by the group that wishes to install the crosswalk, “as long as they are in the community.” But if later on, it could be incorporated and managed by the La Jolla Business Improvement District, it might be something to explore. LJVMA member Jamie Dickerson said she liked the concept and jokingly asked if Benton “could do every block like this?” Several other board members seemed to agree, because when it came to make a motion to support the concept, several were quick to be the first. The motion passed unanimously. Benton said he expects to return to the Merchants board when plans are more finalized, but in the meantime, would present to other groups.

Bishop’s Destiny Littleton selected for All-American Game More than 800 vetted for national team
BY ASHLEY MACKIN The Bishop’s School hoop-star Destiny Littleton has been selected from a national pool as one of 24 girls to compete in the 40th annual McDonald’s All American Game, which will be held and televised on ESPNU (check local listings for the channel) on March 29, when Destiny will compete against “some of the greatest talent” in America. At a special ceremony at The Bishop’s School Feb. 9, Destiny was recognized by McDonald’s and School officials, and given an honorary jersey to commemorate her selection to the All American Games. Hosted in the big gym, the stands were packed with supporters and classmates to celebrate her achievement. “I just want to thank my classmates, teachers, coaches, friends and family for the love and support. This means a lot to me to be one of the 24 selected for this team. It’s a dream come true,” Destiny briefly said. “Every year, 24 boys and 24 girls are selected from a nominee group of more than 800, and are selected to play in the Games. These are the most talented student athletes in

Bishop’s School students offer Destiny a standing ovation.
Her coach, Marlon Wells added, “I don’t think everyone realizes or understands the records this kid has broken. She is the all-time leading scorer in the history of California, and the first one in California — boy or girl — to go over 4,000 career points. That didn’t happen easily. There were a lot of late nights in this very gym, a lot of sweat and hard work. (We are so proud that) Destiny is about
where Destiny is headed. We should be proud of this girl.” Destiny, a 5-foot-9 senior, will attend USC this fall. Bishop’s School athletic director Joel Allen said, “On behalf of the school, teachers, athletic department, we want to thank Destiny for taking us on this ride. It has been four years of coming to basketball games and being proud of what’s on the court, and proud of
to join the ranks of the one of the most elite basketball players in the United States.” Anecdotally, he said, Destiny used to watch the 2000 film “Love and Basketball,” starring Omar Epps and Sanaa Lathan, all the time. “It’s about girl who plays high school ball and fulfilled her dream of going to USC and making it to the WNBA, and she lives happily ever after,” he said. “That’s

Play It Safe- Just say NO to sports injuries
1 Juan Reque, Owner of Injury Prevention Institute
Q: WHAT’S THE SCOOP ON THIS “INVISIBLE TRAINING KIT?” A: The Invisible Training Kit contains “one-of-a-kind” products speciﬁcally designed to recover and prevent injuries. Having worked with athletes for over 20 years, the most challenging aspect of injury treatment and prevention is what happens between appointments, at home. Instead of trying to explain what products to purchase and what exercises to do, I thought, “Why don’t I develop a ‘took kit’ with ﬁve or six products the patient can use on their own?” This way, their chances of success will be much higher, since they will be using the right stuff in the convenience of their own home.
Q: WHAT’S INCLUDED IN THE KIT? A: Injury prevention is all about having loose joints, relaxed muscles and good balance. The products included are designed with this in mind and include items like movement sliders that aid in mobility, resistance bands which assist in deeper, safer stretching, and my own Thimblex self-massage product.
THANK YOU LA JOLLA FOR VOTING
N O 1 CONTRACTOR
Q: DID YOU HAVE ANYONE SPECIFIC IN MIND WHEN YOU CREATED THE INVISIBILE TRAINING KIT? A: I get really sad when I see so many young athletes getting injured time after time. There is a gap between doctors, chiropractors and physical therapists that I hope to ﬁll. By teaching routines and providing education on the importance of these exercises at an early age, we can instill injury-preventing habits with life-long beneﬁts. I go over this more in-depth during my weekly seminar hosted at my Solana Beach ofﬁce.

CRIME AND PUBLIC-SAFETY NEWS
Ask the Financial Expert by Aubrey Morrow, Certiﬁed Financial Planner®
How to WRECK Your Retirement by overlooking possibility of need for Long Term Health Care LONG-TERM CARE is the #1 Financial Risk faces by retirees. According to the Department of Health and Human Services, at least 70 percent of people over 65 will eventually need long-term care, either at home or in a nursing home, and that can be very expensive. The average stay for a woman entering a nursing home is almost four years; if she’s in a semiprivate room that costs in San Diego is about $375,000. For married couples, the chances that one spouse will need long-term care rises to 91%.
Below are Annual Care Costs in San Diego: Home Health Care
Monthly Costs 5-year Growth in costs
Home Health Aide
Adult Day Health Care
Assisted Living Facility
Genworth 2015 Cost of Care Survey, conducted by CareScout®
Options to pay for Long-Term Health Care Costs ✔ Deplete Savings. How long can your funds last considering costs above? ✔ Use Your Retirement Income sources – what about spouse on-going ﬁnancial needs? ✔ Sell Assets – deplete your investments and retirement nest egg ✔ Borrow – if possible ✔ Ask Children to provide ﬁnancial help ✔ Reverse Mortgage – getting more difﬁcult to qualify. ✔ Sell home – terrible decision to make ✔ Cash Value of Life Insurance – depletes the death beneﬁt ✔ Purchase Long Term Health Care Insurance individual policies – problem of increasing rates. ✔ Purchase Certiﬁcate of Deposit Type Policy which provides substantial LTC beneﬁts, life insurance to heirs if LTC is not needed and return of original deposit if requested ✔ Count on Medicare. Medicare only covers up to 100 days of rehabilitation following hospitalization. Then, nothing.

FROM REC CENTER, A3 and people travel. There are also New Year’s Eve parties and we don’t want to compete with other similar events. If the events are expensive and we are catering to a very small crowd, we need to stick with specialty events that only we do, like the Cinco de Mayo and Aloha.” Added member Carolyn Parrish, “I’ve been wanting to cut down on the number of dances for some time. I absolutely agree to keep the two big ones, focus on those, grow them and shop for them in advance.”
Mad Science on the chopping block?
Prompted by low turnout and high rate of refunds, Greatrex suggested canceling the annual Mad Science summer camp. “The problem is the curriculum is dated ... think creating friction with a balloon to make your hair stand up,” she said. “Kids today don’t want that anymore.” She further pointed to competition from the frequent, free science programs offered at the nearby La Jolla Library. Greatrex said, as a possible science alternative, she is working with UC San Diego to bring a coding camp to the Rec Center. “I often ask people what they want to see here, and I’ve heard more than once that kids want to learn coding, so I’m exploring how to bring that here.” The fate of Mad Science was tabled to next month’s agenda.
Tennis Club assistance
La Jolla Tennis Club manager Scott Farr
Rain water got between the layers of surfacing material at La Jolla Tennis Club, causing it to chip and create an uneven court. presented two repair projects caused by the recent rains that are “out of our budget” and needed to be handled promptly. One of them, which involves repairing or resurfacing a wall that is shared with La Jolla Rec Center playground, was tabled pending the larger redevelopment of the playground. “The rains did major damage to a single tennis court, and normally to resurface it would be $4,500, but to resurface this one after such rain damage would be $12,000,” Farr said. “We actually have someone who wants to contribute to this project, but they can only contribute to a 501(c)3, so
we are hoping this board can accept the donation and pay the contractor.” Greatrex said to accrue the balance, the board would have to look at what it could contribute, what it could get from a beautification fund from the San Diego City Council and what could be raised from donations in the community. The board later voted “to see if we can help the Tennis Club with their grounds area” and will hear, and vote on, final numbers at next month’s meeting. — LJP&R next meets 5 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 22 at La Jolla Rec Center, 615 Prospect St. bit.ly/ljreccenter

Neurogenx treats nerve pain at the source
BY DAVID L. CODDON Surgery-phobes (and you’re probably one of them), take heart. If you suffer from neuropathic symptoms or neuromuscular pain, you’ve got the option of a non-invasive treatment that its proponents say is 87 percent effective. “The concept is called electro-signal therapy, or EST,” says Dr. Amirhassan Bahreman, medical director at the Neurogenx NerveCenter in La Mesa, part of a nationwide chain that has been open since October. The FDA-approved and patented Neurogenx Treatment employs high-frequency electronic waves that penetrate muscular tissue where pain and discomfort persist. According to the Neurogenx website, “The treatment creates changes at the body’s cellular level that reduce swelling, remove excess fluids and waste products, alter Ph levels and increase cellular metabolism.” “Inflammation of the nerve is the major reason for nerve damage,” explains Bahreman, who is the only board-certified neurologist in San Diego County who offers this treatment as an alternative to narcotics or invasive surgery. “With this technology, the (developers of Neurogenx Treatment) were able to prove that the inflammation can be reduced.”
some private insurers have made exceptions. But he points out that the cost over time is not prohibitive. “It differs from case to case, of course, but when you break it down to the number of treatments, I think it’s less than what you’d pay for a chiropractor or for massage therapy.” Since some patients may be new to EST or perhaps even wary about it, Bahreman offers complimentary consultations to each prospective new patient. Because its patients come into the office so often during the treatment program, “they know us by name and ask us what’s going on in our lives, and we do the same,” says Eileen COURTESY Craker, who is Bahreman’s physician liaison Neurogenx is a medical treatment that makes diabetic neuropathy treatable without and who works with other physicians on surgery or prescription medications. For more than four out of five patients, Neurogenx referrals for this treatment. “We want to create doctors say it helps reduce or eliminate the tingling, burning, pain and numbness of almost a family with our patients.” diabetic, peripheral neuropathy.

Donald Epps’ Memories of La Jolla
setting up entrepreneurial opportunities, and my father followed that with a hauling business, and he started making money.” However, to add to the family’s income, the older siblings contributed to the mortgage payments. Joe Epps, who was one of them, was interviewed by members of the La Jolla Historical Society in 2011. La Jolla Light got access to a transcription of that conversation, where he stated, “My two oldest brothers, when they were early teens, started delivering the Los Angeles Times, which was the most popular newspaper here in La Jolla.” The Epps family had nine children. Donald was the youngest. The two eldest and most popular at school were Luke and Randall Epps. “Luke and Randall graduated from La Jolla High in 1948. Randall was football star. He made All-San Diego City team, he was student body president 1948, which was a tremendous (accomplishment), because this is way before desegregation,” said Donald Epps.. Schools in La Jolla were never segregated, neither were the beaches or movie theaters. However, whether or not there was discrimination, is a different topic.
■ “Growing up here mostly in the 1960s was just a wonderful experience. There were tremendous opportunities, it was a neat neighborhood. There were, at one point, three restaurants (in the African-American neighborhood).” ■ “The Rec Center was a very big part of our development as kids. We came home after school and we went there for activities, like the Rec Center plays, musicals or playing sports there.”
In his 2011 interview, Joe Epps described the “Black Quarters” as follows: “It was a ghetto. Because I looked up the word ghetto. And it was a ghetto. I mean, I don’t know what else you would call it. … When my father bought the place on Eads Avenue, the drainage coming down from the hills was all covered and enclosed until it got through that block from Draper to Eads Avenue. And there it was open sewage. And that went on for years.” Although he said he didn’t feel discriminated against or suffered any negative treatment, Joe Epps said, “There were some things. Like in the summertime when we would go to the beach, we always went to the Casa Bach (aka Children’s Pool). Now nobody ever said it, but we kind of understood that we weren’t welcome at The Cove. That was the white beach. But I never heard anybody say that.” Cristin McVey, author of “Traces of Black San Diego” reported discrimination in access to the housing market in La Jolla from the 1920s to 1950s, mainly when African-Americans tried to buy property outside of the “Black Quarters.” “It was against this backdrop that blacks in La Jolla found themselves struggling to secure a foothold in a town they help to found. To circumvent deed restrictions, restrictive covenants, and discriminatory real estate practices, black La Jollans were forced to create alternative routes for home buying, and felt the heat when such purchases ‘offended’ neighbors. In one case, a white employer of a black cook stepped in and purchased a home for a black worker when the employee was told that the home could not be sold to blacks,” she wrote. Mildred Lee Bell, a then-resident of La Jolla, was interviewed by Jamie Ginsberg on behalf of the La Jolla Historical Society. She also reports very little or no

La Jolla High School 1948 yearbook pictures of Charles and Randall Epps discrimination in her early life in the coastal community. “The blacks, per se, were such a small segment of the school population, and I personally felt pretty well accepted. The white majority, they were always willing to accept one or two (African-Americans), but don’t come in droves (laughs).” As McVey has theorized in her research about African-Americans in La Jolla, the group felt the quality of life in La Jolla to be “unsurpassed,” but “black residents in La Jolla were undoubtedly recipients of racial prejudice,” she wrote.
World War II
The involvement of the United Stated in the Second World War (1939-1945) had an effect on the then-sleepy community of La Jolla. Joe Epps said it was a “really, really fearful time.” He remembered rumors of fighting on the West Coast against the Japanese, which turned out not to be true. “And then they used to have the blackouts and the sirens. They’d start the sirens and everybody had to turn the lights out,” he said. But the fear wasn’t the only consequence for African-Americans in La Jolla. Many black workers, Barbara Waters wrote in “A Unique Black Community: La Jolla, California 1920-1940,” found jobs outside La Jolla in the defense and aerospace industries. “A few managed to get jobs on the assembly line, but the majority were hired to perform janitorial work. The money was good, more than what they had made previously. Carpools were formed to take people into San Diego to work,” she reported. This created extra income for the community, Waters
■ “It was a very structured lifestyle. All the kids knew each other very well, played together very well. I would say it was a very unique experience. It was a healthy environment.” explained, which continued to work as domestics for Caucasian families in the evenings and on weekends. “When the defense industry laid off workers after the war, black (people) returned to La Jolla seeking their old jobs,” she added. Some of them succeeded and others didn’t; due to the increase in population in the Black Quarters, many of the old jobs were already taken. “This slight increase in population caused the Black Quarters to spread one block on the south side of Pearl Street, and small houses and apartments were built in the backyards of some original houses,” Waters stated. The proximity of Camp Callan (3.5 miles north of La Jolla) made the community closely involved with war efforts, Waters theorized. “Black soldiers, too, found welcome in the community,” she wrote. After World War II, things got worse for African-Americans in La Jolla, McVey reported: “Black families, who came to La Jolla after the Second World War, found it more difficult to buy homes, especially homes not previously owned by another black family. The town’s vision for La Jolla was changing from a self-supporting community to an exclusive suburb for white elites.” Waters said the lack of housing in La Jolla was the beginning of the end of the African-American community that once lived there: “They felt they could rent a better house or apartment in another part of San Diego for less money. Landlords found that more Mexican-Americans were willing to crowd into the premises that black tenants vacated.”

San Diego City Council tackles housing affordability
Dismantling local advisory boards and historical preservation, among proposals BY MARÍA JOSÉ DURÁN The skyrocketing cost of housing in San Diego has been an ongoing conversation in both political and non-political circles for the past 30 years. Now, the City Council’s Smart Growth & Land Use (SGLU) committee has taken the lead to re-start the dialogue at the community planning groups level. During the SGLU meeting Jan. 25, the issue was long discussed by various stakeholders, including references to proposition memos City Council members on the committee sent out. The suggestions included in these documents could have great impacts on citywide policies and affect the future of La Jolla and its decision-making processes and organizations. Some of the most controversial came from City Council member Scott Sherman (District 7). One of his memo propositions is to reform community planning groups to “achieve higher professionalism,” with policy changes that include additional training, increased diversity among members and “consolidating community planning groups into larger regional groups.” David Moty, chair of the Community Planners Committee, spoke against merging community planning groups into larger organizations. “Currently, community planning groups range in size from towns to mid-size cities, and their point is to provide local knowledge gained from direct daily experience in the neighborhoods,” he explained. Matthew Adams, vice-president of the San Diego County Building Industry Association, advocated for making the construction process “as timely as possible.” He argued that development projects that conform with community and zoning plans should be moved forward, “and you would think that they would, but if there’s one little variance, if there’s a setback that’s smaller (then projects get delayed in the community process).” Save Our Heritage Organisation (SOHO) board member David Swarens also addressed the topic during public comment. He advocated for members of the community groups to be included in construction conversations. “There’s the feeling that community groups, including community planning groups, are viewed as an obstructive impediment,” Swarens said. La Jolla Light reached out to District 1 City Council member Barbara Bry (who is not a member of the SGLU committee) for her view on these policies. She replied in a statement: “District 1 has unique communities and each planning group plays an important role. I do want to ensure that planning groups include voices from all parts of the community and encourage public participation.” The proposition to shrink community input in construction projects has roots in a bigger policy direction: Stripping away the local building regulations and fees, which according to a study from Point Loma Nazarene University — the most-cited document in the meeting — make up 47 percent of the total cost.
Housing affordability and building costs
Council members and meeting attendees agreed that there are two problems to tackle in this discussion — housing affordability (housing costs compared to medium salaries) and affordable housing (housing that’s affordable to low-income families). The latter has traditionally been addressed with different forms of subsidized housing, and meeting attendees advocated for continuing in that direction. To achieve a production of market-rate homes that will level off the costs of housing for medium-income families and solve the home-affordability problem of the region, the suggestions heard involved reducing taxes, fees, contributions and time constraints for developers. La Jolla planning consultant Joe LaCava gave a heartfelt speech focused on the necessity of deeper changes than the ones proposed. “With all due respect, the table has been set this afternoon not to tackle the crisis, but to nibble around the edges. Making little changes that will make us feel good
With all due respect,
the table has been set this afternoon not to tackle the crisis, but to nibble around the edges.

Under the law, which took effect in January, ADU (aka “granny flats”) should be easier to build. The SGLU committee intends to ease restrictions to facilitate the building of these extra units for San Diegans. According to Sherman, this would mean “supplemental income for homeowners and affordable in-fill housing for residents.” Sherman also proposes building Junior Accessory Dwelling Units (units less than 500 square feet within existing homes) that feature a kitchenette and a door to the exterior of the house and an amnesty to existing unpermitted ADU.
Council members David Alvarez (District 8) and Scott Sherman (District 7) at the Jan. 25 Smart Growth & Land Use committee meeting might make a little bit of improvement, but will any of them jumpstart us to 9,000 units a year, our natural growth demands?” he said, adding that re-writing the land development code is a necessity. SOHO director Bruce Coons told La Jolla Light, “Most people seem to think that if we allow the development industry to build as many houses at market rate (as they want), it will balance out. The developers always move to the highest profit item; they keep claiming they’ll drive housing prices down, but I don’t think that’s really possible anymore.” However, Adams stated that rolling back buildings costs can be positive. “Even with modest changes, you can have a significant impact in housing availability, affordability and economic activity,” he said, adding that a 3 percent decrease in building regulations could sprout a $3 billion growth to the gross regional product. One of the proposed “roll backs,” included in the memos by City Council members Sherman and David Alvarez (District 8), is reducing parking requirements for residential developments. But Sherman goes further, asking for expanded self-certification programs on building projects, reducing the possibilities for California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) appeals, the building of Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU) and taking away the historical preservation decision power of the Historical Resources Board (HRB) in favor of the City Council.
Accessory Dwelling Units
In September 2016, Gov. Jerry Brown signed Senate Bill 1069 that allows accessory dwelling units in single- or multi-family residential zones. “(ADU) provide additional rental housing stock, and these units are an essential component of housing supply in California,” the bill reads.
Sherman’s memo references a handful of policy changes in historical preservation policies. It reads, “Specific reforms include: mandating Council approval on any new historic or potentially historic district, allowing an appeal of a historic designation on any grounds, bifurcating HRB hearings into two per month, separating the agendas of DSD referral and voluntary designation, increasing the designation to 75 years, amending the criteria used to designate (eliminate wildcard criteria and require two criteria be met), and capping the limit by which Mills Act tax credit recipients may receive such a credit — once the threshold of property value is met, homeowners must pay taxes on the remaining value.” However, Coons said, “This is probably barking up the wrong tree … especially because historical preservation is so small, less than 1 percent (of the existing homes in San Diego).” He argued that most of Sherman’s suggestions were either pointless or come from a misunderstanding of how the HRB really works. “If they were to enact these requirements and somehow get it through, we just go to the State and keep the City out,” Coons continued, suggesting that a good way to help developers would be to run a countywide or citywide historical “map.” “What’s more important for builders to know is where property that has potential constraints is, and identifying the historic resources is one of the greatest things we could do to speed things up,” he said. Bry, who ran on a platform of maintaining the unique character of neighborhoods, wrote, “La Jolla has many historic homes and buildings, and these structures are part of what makes our community so special. I will continue to support the Mills Act and historic preservation.”

LA JOLLA NEWS NUGGETS Cove odor appeal denied, attorney suggests making air-quality complaints The recent La Jolla-based Citizens for Odor Nuisance Abatement (CONA) appeal, which argued that the City of San Diego is responsible for the sea lion stench at La Jolla Cove and requested the City clean up the sea lion excrement therein, has been denied. In an opinion filed Feb. 9, the Fourth Appellate District Court of Appeal affirmed the ruling of Judge Timothy B. Taylor that the City is not responsible for the odors. The opinion states, “We sympathize with CONA, but agree with the trial court that any resolution likely lies in the political sphere.” Oral Arguments in the appeal were delivered Jan. 10 by La Jolla Shores-based attorney Norm Blumenthal, who has been representing CONA since it filed the lawsuit in December 2013. Blumenthal argued for an appeal of the trial court’s ruling, which granted the City summary judgment and dismissed the CONA case. In March 2015, CONA filed claims against the City of San Diego for what they viewed as public officials’ failure to rid La Jolla Cove of its pervasive odors from bird and marine mammal waste. The judge ruled the City doesn’t have a duty to control any nuisance caused by wild animals, and that the City isn’t the cause of the odor. This month’s appeal ruling confirmed this decision. As an alternative source of action, Blumenthal’s office recommends concerned citizens call the County Air Pollution Control District at (858) 586-2650 and lodge a complaint about the air quality.
Sea lions have made La Jolla Cove their home and are one of the main causes of the ‘Cove Stench.’
Hundreds rally in La Jolla to support refugees More than 800 people gathered at Congregation Beth El in La Jolla Feb. 2, for a demonstration of solidarity and alliance by the Jewish community in support of refugees and immigrants. Organized by four San Diego Jewish nonprofits — the Anti-Defamation League of San Diego County, Jewish Family Service of San Diego, Jewish Federation of San Diego and Leichtag Foundation — attendees heard from prominent religious and community leaders about taking action against the recent travel ban, and were reminded of the Jewish community’s history as refugees and immigrants. Speakers included Rabbi Yael Ridberg from Congregation Dor Hadash, Rabbi Nadav Caine from the San Diego Rabbinic Association, Rabbi Scott Meltzer from Ohr Shalom Synagogue, Rabbi Avi Libman from Congregation Beth El, City Council member Barbara Bry and California State Assembly member Todd Gloria. Bry said the event, “brought together hundreds from different backgrounds to condemn the misguided executive order banning some refugees from our country” and added that she attended because “as a mother and grandmother, I want to leave the world a better place for the next generation. I want my children and grandchildren to know that I stood with refugees in these uncertain and divisive times.” After the speeches, attendees worked their way around the room filling out postcards, learning about Senate Bill 54 that prevents the use of California resources for mass deportations, getting the facts on the refugee screening and resettlement process in the U.S. and learning about volunteer opportunities. Jewish Family Service of San Diego (JFS) CEO Michael Hopkins said, “We resettle refugees from war zones around the world not because they’re Jewish, but because we are. There are 129 people who were already positioned to be resettled by JFS and have had their immigration process halted.”

The eyesore, off La Jolla Parkway at Ardath Road and Hidden Valley, as seen in 2015
Two years later, same sad situation Here’s an update to a letter published in the La Jolla Light two years ago … Nothing! The same “patch,” the same apathy, the same incompetence! Mark Pretorius Editor’s Note: Here is the letter to which Mr. Pretorius refers: Tarnishing Our Jewel: City’s patch job falls apart — “The quick repair the City made for the construction area off La Jolla Parkway at Ardath Road and Hidden
In February 2017, the junkyard and dilapidated fencing remains. Valley has become an eyesore again. Instead of replacing fence covering with a whole new piece, last time they simply patched it. Now it is ripping apart again and all the junk in the construction yard shows through. Another thing to note is the sidewalk is overgrown by the bushes and this is a real safety problem! That is a blind corner and it is difficult to push a stroller through there forcing the use of the street as a walkway. Cars come flying around there accelerating to get onto the parkway and it is only a matter of time until there is an accident.”
Here’s a curious mystery to solve! After years of walking over this landmark, my curiosity has finally driven me to find an answer to its mystery. In the concrete sidewalk (on the coast side of the street across from 939 Coast Blvd.) is a remnant of the past. But what is it? “Faultline” is written next to the series of slightly offset semicircles. I’ve made inquiries with many longtime residents, as well as the La Jolla Historical Society, but no one seems to have a definitive answer. I’m thinking this question must have been asked and answered before, so I’m hoping someone out there remembers the answer and submits it to the La Jolla Light for publication. Rusty Runholt
Who has thought out some traffic plans for Fay Avenue’s future? We have watched with excitement all of the building activity on Fay Street in recent years. Although we still miss Jonathan’s market, the addition of The Lot is a community win. Now we see the La Jolla Music Society’s “Conrad” has broken ground, with an assisted living center adjacent. With all of this development, additional traffic is inevitable. We have a concern about the potential for a pedestrian injury or death on Fay Street. People jaywalk. Some of these jaywalkers are children, some elderly, some disabled. We would suggest that the risk management personnel of The Lot, The Conrad, Vons and the new assisted living center meet with City of San Diego traffic officials to devise a plan to prevent a pedestrian accident. For once, let’s get ahead of a potential tragedy. Kathleen K. Edwards Daved L. Frerker
‘Faultline’ is written next to the series of slightly offset semicircles ion this piece of sidewalk along Coast Boulevard.
The time has come to relocate the pinnipeds This is in response to the letter written about La Jolla Children’s Pool in last week’s paper. The author offered a choice. I choose the first proposal: Move the seals. The seals and sea lions are inhabiting developed beaches that have cost the taxpayers of San Diego millions of dollars for lifeguard stations, stairs, walls, walkways and restrooms. The seals and sea lions can legally be displaced from the developed beaches and they can find undeveloped beaches to lay on. Maybe they will be go to the Coronado Islands. That would be great, as they wouldn’t be bothered by anyone. They’re animals. They’re adaptable. They’ll do fine somewhere else. They were somewhere else before the City of San Diego allowed them to take over Children’s Pool and La Jolla Cove. The seals and seal lions do pose threats to humans. Their waste pollutes the beach sand and ocean water. They carry diseases such as tuberculosis, leptospirosis, brucellosis, mycoplasmosis, blastomycosis, lobomycosis,
mycobacterium marinum, calicivirus, influenza, poxvirus and others. And they can attract predators, such as sharks. If you had rats or mice or termites living in your house, would you move out and let them have the house? Or would you kick them out of “their home?” Or would you even kill them? After all, they have a right to live! And they need a place to have babies … and rest. Since you “swam in The Cove a few times and got cold,” you should get a wetsuit and try again. Because you don’t swim in The Cove, your opinion on what other people should do there is not relevant. A lot of people swim in The Cove every day of the year, even in winter, and without wetsuits. I agree that The Cove is a great place to enjoy 360-degree views of La Jolla. The Cove is one of the best beaches in California. Thousands of people swim there in the summer. The Cove is a great place to swim, snorkel, dive, body surf, picnic and lay on the beach … as long as it’s not contaminated with pinniped poop. Dan Truitt

OUR READERS WRITE (CONTINUED) What’s behind ‘productive’ meeting with the Mayor? In the Feb. 9 edition of the Light on page A30, it was reported that District 1 City Council member Barbara Bry had a meeting with the Mayor and his staff regarding the stench at La Jolla Cove. Her staff said the meeting was “productive,” but just what does that mean? Ms. Bry should tell her constituents what took place behind closed doors that would make it “productive.” We need specifics, not more political double-speak, so there can be accountability from our City because so far, there is little of that. So sad! Lou Cumming
Enjoyed the letter on grammar last week After reading Patricia Weber’s letter in the Feb. 9 issue, I was moved to reflect that each of us has his favorite grammatical miscues. “Chaq’un a son gout” (“to each his own taste”), but my view is that ending a sentence with a preposition is but a venial sin against good usage compared to some others that are real whoppers — “Me and him went to the beach,” for example. As for the misplaced prepositions, let me remind readers of Winston Churchill’s rejoinder to being chided for doing just that, “This is the kind of arrant pedantry up with which I shall not put!” Fred Boynton
It’s OK to end a sentence with a proposition While I enjoyed reading Patricia Weber’s letter “Don’t kill the English language,” in last week’s issue, I do not believe it is a grammar imperative to avoid ending a sentence with a preposition. In addition, one can split their infinitives as well and still be literate and grammatically correct. Emily Brewster, associate editor at Merriam-Webster, states, “A preposition is perfectly appropriate word to end a sentence with.”
The rule of not ending a sentence with a preposition is supposed to have come from the 17th century writer John Dryden. He castigated such writers as Ben Johnson and William Shakespeare for ending sentences with prepositions because Dryden thought English should be more like Latin. So this rule is purely arbitrary and as Winston Churchill supposedly said, “This is just the kind of nonsense up with which I will not put.” The point being that language is fluid and changes over time, and again, according to Brewster, “While many aspects of Latin have made their way into the English language, this particular grammar rule is not suited for English usage.” So I ask you if I had submitted this sentence to my English teacher in a high school writing assignment, “We are such stuff as dreams are made on,” would s/he have been correct to insist it be re-written as, “Dreams are made on such stuff as we are.” (If so, Shakespeare would be turning in his grave.) Avalee Cohen
What would Sir Winston say? Regarding the recent letter by Patricia Weber, the issue of prepositions at the end of sentences has been contentious for years. No less a figure than Winston Churchill was reprimanded for ending a sentence with a preposition, to which he replied, “That is a criticism up with which I will not put.” Quite the “put-down.” The other grammatical rule that seems to be falling by the wayside is the stricture against split infinitives, which have been enshrined in popular culture by such memes as the Star Trek motto, “To boldly go where no man has gone before.” Jane Dyson

Students are compiling list of health-related resources I am the co-president of a student-run organization at UC San Diego whose goal is to compile a list of various free and reduced-cost health resources (such as health clinics, dental clinics, optometry clinics, shelter homes, etc.) and present the information to the less fortunate as they may not have access to a computer or phone to find resources they need. In collaboration with San Diego 2-1-1, we travel to two different food banks every week to get in touch with the less fortunate and present them with information that is unavailable to them without our help. I am reaching out for an article about my organization in the La Jolla Light. Not only would this allow for my organization to expand its boundaries and collaborate with other people and/or organizations to better accomplish our goal, but would also bring awareness to an issue in today’s society that every individual can help to make better by volunteering or donating their own time.

LJCPA trustee Patrick Ahern explains the Environmental Impact Report process, and the questions that could be answered with the document.
Planners re-affirm request for EIR in reservoir project
BY ASHLEY MACKIN La Jolla Community Planning Association (LJCPA) re-affirmed its request that an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) be filed for the La Jolla Heights Reservoir Project, during its Feb. 2 meeting at La Jolla Rec Center. The board initially heard about the reservoir replacement project in March 2015. The three-pronged project entails demolishing the existing above-ground La Jolla View Reservoir in La Jolla Heights Natural Park and decommissioned Exchange Place reservoir/pump station near the corner of Country Club Drive and Pepita Way; constructing one 3.1 million gallon underground tank to replace the two that will be demolished; and replacing the current 16-inch Country Club Drive pipeline with a 30-inch pipe. It is expected that 300 truckloads will come and go to excavate the area and maneuver on a temporary access road to be built through the park over two years. The project is paid for through water rate payers and once complete, the La Jolla Heights Natural Park will be re-vegetated with native plants. Reflecting on the last time it was discussed, LJCPA vice-president Helen Boyden said, “We didn’t want to hear it again until there had been an Environmental Impact Report drafted.” However, LJCPA president Cindy Greatrex explained that, “The City of San Diego Department of Public Works has asked us to hear this again … as an action item where trustees, if they so choose, have the ability to request the action that an EIR is created.”
Beginning in 2018, City plans call for the above ground La Jolla View Reservoir in La Jolla Heights Natural Park to be demolished and replaced with an underground 3.1 million gallon to be constructed. Arguing for that action, trustee Patrick Ahern made a presentation on behalf of Friends of La Jolla Heights Natural Park (of which he is a founding member) to showcase the questions that could be answered with an EIR, and which have not otherwise been addressed. An EIR identifies and examines the likely environmental effects of a proposed project, and proposes measures to avoid, mitigate or offset them. “This is an important project and there are different ways of looking at it. What we’re wondering is, is this necessary? We recognize that it probably is, but is this the best way to go about it?” he opined. Ahern went on to cite that the La Jolla Community Plan shows La Jolla Heights Natural Park (perched atop Encelia Drive near the La Jolla Country Club) is a dedicated park, and therefore should be preserved as open space without disruption. “Our Community Plan advocates for protecting environmentally sensitive habitats, which this is,” he said. “Our guidelines and the City’s guidelines for making decisions for the community (of La Jolla) suggest the City should ensure, to the fullest extent possible, natural resources such as shrub and chaparral, and the critters that live there, are protected.”
He suggested that with an EIR, these issues and how they would be mediated, would have to be explored. Other questions that arose from the room and board included restriction of access to public spaces and environmental impacts on the community, such as traffic mitigation; street safety and noise remediation. “We want all this to be looked at and decided upon with input from this group (all EIRs have a public comment period) and the general public,” he said. The City’s position has been that potential environmental impacts could be easily resolved and the project would therefore only need a Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND), which suggests there would not be major impact, or lesser environmental review. Attempting to prove this point, City Public Works Department project manager Ed Fordan answered questions piecemeal, and through an informational video. The video explained that due to their age and condition, the City maintains the reservoirs have reached the end of their service lives and need to be replaced to protect water quality and provide appropriate water storage volume for water supply and fire protection. The project is 100 percent designed, and construction is expected to
begin in 2018, and be finished by summer 2020. Fordan explained the reservoirs were built in 1949 and 1962 respectively, and are no longer able to keep up with water usage demands. “During construction, there will be dust control, erosion control and noise limits that the contractor will need to adhere to. And we have City inspectors who will ensure contractor compliance,” he said. One meeting attendee noted the “unpleasant history” with the City contracting process (referencing the infrastructure work in La Jolla Shores that has taken three years off and on), and asked what guarantees they have that this City project would be done right. Fordan replied, “We are going to hire a construction management firm (to partner with) the City, so construction goes smoothly.” As for the Exchange Place pump station property — which many have advocated be converted into a park — Fordan explained that it’s owned by the City Public Utilities Department and it’s not known what would happen to the property. “At this point, our direction is to demolition the pump station and replace it with native vegetation.” Lastly, he said a temporary access road would be built to accommodate the trucks excavating the dirt to limit the number of trips on City streets, and that “flag-men” would help facilitate traffic, and plans were in development to fix any damage to the roads after the fact. All said, LJCPA moved to re-affirm its recommendation that an EIR be required for the La Jolla View Reservoir Project in the La Jolla Heights Natural Park, in accordance with the requirements of California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), and the City of San Diego’s Multiple Species Conservation program … due to the potentially significant adverse impacts of the project on sensitive natural resources, and residential neighborhoods. The motion carried unanimously. — La Jolla Community Planning Association next meets 6 p.m. Thursday, March 2 at La Jolla Rec Center, 615 Prospect St. lajollacpa.org

FROM AIRPLANE NOISE, A1 The document references factors, such as the increase in airplane size, increase in the number of flights and the possibility of a change in the air traffic controllers operations that contribute to the overall feeling of “living in an airport.” “It may be that we have reached a ‘tipping point’ due to many of the above factors,” the document states. Last week, protesters attended the meetings of the La Jolla Village Merchants Association (LJVMA), La Jolla Shores Association (LJSA) and La Jolla Town Council (LJTC). During the latter, they set up an information booth in front of Rec Center Room 1, where the meeting took place, and requested signatures for their petition. Bird Rock resident Beatriz Pardo said the petition has 500 signatures so far and they intended to reach 1,000 by Wednesday, Feb. 15 when the Airport Noise Advisory Committee meets. During the LJTC meeting, resident Len Gross encouraged attendees to sign the petition, adding that the goal is “to make the FAA and the Airport Authority aware that we have an increasing noise issue in La Jolla and we would like them to help us understand why the noise is increasing and what the options are that the airport and the FAA may have for reducing the noise.” Residents are dealing with the fact that the FAA’s Southern California Metroplex Project changes (which will affect the area) won’t kick in until March 2, while witnessing the uproar generated by those who’ve noticed an increase in airplane noise that began in the fall of 2016. At the LJTC meeting, resident Margo
Schwab said, “(People) have compared the airplane noise with a heavy metal band. If you like that kind of music, good for you, not me. Wait for summer when the windows are open.” A factor for the increased noise, according to FAA personnel at past meetings, was the unusual overcast weather that magnifies the sounds produced by air traffic.
At the LJSA meeting, disagreement arose when board member David Gordon gave a presentation that showed, according to his research and own experience, there have been no changes in flight paths or the levels of noise in La Jolla. “There is one exception, the (FAA) changed a standard arrival route slightly, but that’s 5 miles off the coast,” he said. Gordon, who is a pilot, said that even though Shores neighbors swear they are constantly bothered by the airplanes arriving at San Diego International Airport from the east, he hasn’t noticed any changes, nor is he disturbed by the passing flights. “When it’s cloudy, you’re going to hear the jet noise a lot more. When it’s sunny, the noise dissipates in all directions. From what I’ve seen and the air traffic controllers tell me, there has been no significant change,” he explained. Bird Rock resident and attorney Jan Chatten-Brown took the floor after Gordon. “I’ve been very anxious to hear what people are experiencing. I’m four houses away from the ocean and I now must sleep with ear plugs. At 6 a.m., when (the airplanes) start, I put a pillow over my head,” she said. Chatten-Brown told attendees that the increasing noises were a consequence of the FAA’s Metroplex Project implementation,
Does airplane noise affect health and well-being? International research has showed that air traffic noise isn’t just an annoyance for residents, it can also be dangerous: ■ “Aircraft noise and cardiovascular disease near Heathrow Airport in London: Small area study,” (2013, Imperial College London) investigated the association of aircraft noise with risk of stroke, coronary heart disease, and cardiovascular disease and concluded: “Hospital admissions showed statistically significant linear trends of increasing risk with higher levels of both day time (7 a.m. to 11 p.m.) and night time (11 p.m. to 7 a.m.) aircraft noise.” ■ “Residential exposure to aircraft noise and hospital admissions for cardiovascular diseases: Multi-airport retrospective study,” (2013, Francesca Dominic, Harvard) researched whether exposure to aircraft noise increases the risk of hospitalization for cardiovascular diseases in older people (age 65 and up), and found a link between exposure to airplane noise and risk of hospitalization for cardiovascular disease. — María José Durán
“which started in November.” However, FAA personnel have assured that changes in San Diego International Airport routes will be implemented starting in March 2. “Any time a federal agency takes action that has a significant impact on the environment, they have to prepare an environmental analysis,” Chatten-Brown continued, adding that the reports prepared for the Metroplex Project weren’t enough. “Basically, they modeled what they were going to do,” she said. In a press release, the FAA stated, “During
our environmental analysis for this project, we modeled noise at about 300,000 locations throughout Southern California. Our modeling found that some areas will experience slight noise decreases, some will experience slight noise increases, and some will experience no changes.”
Chatten-Brown said the deadline to file lawsuits against the Metroplex Project has passed. The period to sue the FAA is 60 days after the agency reveals its final decision, which happened Aug. 31, 2016. That made the last day for filing complaints Oct. 30, 2016, just before La Jolla residents started feeling a spike in airplane noise and long before they became organized. “There is a very short statute of limitations, but we could conceivably intervene, although it would be difficult,” she explained, adding that some options for jumping on the lawsuits, would be to file a Friend-of-the-Court brief or just have somebody coordinate with the three jurisdictions that have already filed suits. La Jolla Light spoke to attorney Steven Taber, who specializes in community representation on aviation and airport development cases, and who has filed a Petition for Review against the Southern California Metroplex Project on behalf of a Point Loma resident. Taber said the FAA noise calculation system is outdated and needs to be updated. “(The FAA) needs to realize that their actions are having real effects on people on the ground — especially in situations like this when their interest is the efficiency of aircraft in the sky without respect to the people they may be affecting,” he stated.

Six candidates up for La Jolla Planning Association election The La Jolla Community Planning Association (LJCPA) will hold its yearly trustee election to fill six vacant trustee seats, 3-7 p.m. Thursday, March 2 at the La Jolla Recreation Center, Irving Gill Room, 615 Prospect St. The following five candidates will run for re-election and are on the March 2 ballot: Bob Collins, Cindy Greatrex, Sheila Palmer, Bob Steck and Brian Will.

Rain, Wind and Fire… “The three menaces to any chimney, ﬁreplace or stove.”
An egrets’ piercing eyes see every tiny fish under the water.
PHOTOS BY JEREMY SMITH
Showy snowy egrets are elegant fishers
he snowy egret, Egretta thula, is a small and delicate shorebird with beautiful plumage. They are also one of the easiest herons to identify because of their pure white feathers, yellow skin near their beaks, piercing yellow eyes and bright yellow slippers. They have black legs and a straight black bill. You may find them alone or near other larger herons in La Jolla’s tidepools and shallow waters, where they fish for their meals. They use a variety of foraging techniques, from standing silently staring into the water, to walking slowly through the water, to using their yellow feet to startle small fish and invertebrates like crabs and worms, which they then spear with their beaks. They are sociable in liking to be near other herons but also defend their areas from intruders — they may even steal food from nearby birds.
In the 1900s, snowy egrets were hunted because of their showy feathers and delicate plumes that are visible during breeding season but have since recovered with protection. Nesting season is variable throughout the United States, but nests are made by the female in bushes and in trees, using sticks that are brought to her by the male. Snowys often roost with other herons in colonies. Both males and females will incubate the eggs; generally they have two to six eggs within each clutch. If a snowy egret happens to fly past you, you can still easily recognize them with their long black legs extending out behind the body, and brilliant yellow feet prominently trailing along. — Kelly Stewart is a marine biologist with The Ocean Foundation who writes about the flora and fauna of La Jolla.

To regulate the body’s energy, yoga teacher Jaruska Solyova recommends a ‘mudra’ (symbolic hand gesture) in the shape of a flower. She said, ‘Remember a flower that you really enjoy looking at and smelling. Then put your hands together close to your heart. Start separating your fingers and palms, leaving the upper part of your fingers connected.’
Take A Breather
Beauty, yoga join forces at Woman’s Club event BY MARÍA JOSÉ DURÁN he Feb. 6 members luncheon at La Jolla Woman’s Club (LJWC) featured a special Valentine’s Day presentation by local yoga teacher Jaruska Solyova on the topic “Valentine Inner & Outer Yoga Beauty Secrets.” Solyova spoke about beauty and the benefits that ancient knowledge from India and other parts of Asia can have on the soul and body. She used the letters that make up the word “Beauty” as an acronym to suggest healthy behaviors to LJWC members. For example, Solyova said the B stands for Breathing. She recommended working on the breath to connect the mind and body and bring awareness to one’s anatomy. The “breath
of fire,” as she calls it, is a deep, fast breath with inhaling and exhaling intervals that last less than a second. This breath, Solyova said, could be a useful tool for glowing skin. The E, Solyova added, stands for Energy. “The energy relates to beauty, and it’s either stored in your head and not too much in the heart; or too much in the heart and not so much in the head,” she said. She recommended the use of “mudras” (a symbolic hand gesture used by Hindus and Buddhists in ceremony or to concentrate) that can help increase or channel the body’s energy. Acceptance was the meaning she gave the A, adding that some health problems related to lack of acceptance could
lead to complications in the digestive system or trouble sleeping. To solve those, meditation and inverted postures (when the head is below the heart) can be of help, according to Solyova. Many yoga postures feature inversion, but she chose to show LJWC members one that could be done from the very chair where they were seating, just shifting the upper body forward and letting the head hang between the knees. “Just close your eyes, imagine that you’re looking at a coin, and you turn it upside down,” she said. “And then, (the coin) is completely different. That’s an inversion, it’s the reverse, a look from a complete different point of view. If SEE WOMAN’S CLUB, B4

Where are you from?
“I was born in Saint Louis, Missouri. My
mother had tuberculosis before there were drugs to treat it, back then you just went to a better climate. So when I was 6, we moved to Phoenix, Arizona and lived there for four years. But my mother couldn’t handle the air conditioning, so we moved to Coronado where we had been spending our summers. About that time, my parents got divorced. My mother was from New Jersey, and she moved back there. We children spent the school years with our mother and the summers with our father. And the first time that happened, while we were back East for school, my father, who was a banker, was transferred to the La Jolla branch, so that next summer (1952) we came out to La Jolla. I continued to spend summers here until I graduated from the Naval Academy in 1962. I was stationed out of San Diego, my younger siblings were still at home and my SEE RICHARD SMITH, B5

Getting an ‘A’ in Uber
La Jolla Cultural Partners
recently saw an article on MSN about how you can find out what rating Uber drivers have given you. There wasn’t any doubt in my mind that it would be a perfect 5. I only get A’s. I do not do B+. I am also an Uber driver’s dream: I’m standing out front when they arrive, regardless of the weather. I chat it up with them, am insanely cheerful, always give THEM a 5 and never fail to write a message of praise for their Ubering skills in the comments section. So I was stunned — and stunned is actually way too mild a word — to discover that my rating from drivers was 4.89. WHAAAAAT????? I’d love to get my hands on that driver (or drivers) who gave me less than a perfect score. I even gave a 5 to the driver who blasted Christmas music in my ear at 120 decibels AND the one who took me 10 miles out of my way. I demand an explanation! But the app doesn’t provide explanations. Just an average score. Seriously, this is haunting me. I take Uber a lot. My driving parameters definitely narrowed after a serious auto accident several years ago, and I also don’t like to drive at night. Personally, I think Uber (and Lyft) are the best ideas of the new millennium. Unlike taxis who aren’t inclined to show up for short
hauls, Uber is relentlessly reliable. Over the years, I’ve given many elderly women rides home from the supermarket after the cab that the store manager has called for them failed to show up. Normally these women would never have gotten into a car with someone they didn’t know, but by the time they’ve been sitting on a folding chair for two hours watching their groceries thaw, stranger murder doesn’t sound too bad. But now there’s Uber. My whole outlook on aging has changed knowing I will not have to be a supermarket folding chair lady. And Uber has so many applications! I love to tell the story of my son and daughter-in-law going to a dinner party in L.A. and forgetting the chocolate soufflé that my daughter-in-law, a fabulous cook, had promised to bring for dessert. My son thought he’d end up missing the whole party while he drove back home in L.A. Friday night traffic to retrieve it. But in an inspired moment, he sent an Uber car to his home where the babysitter handed off the soufflé to the driver who delivered it to the dinner party. (For the record, the soufflé gave the driver five stars.) So now I’m second guessing myself. Am I TOO chatty? Should I be sitting in the front seat? Usually I automatically climb in the
Personally, I think Uber (and Lyft) are the best ideas of the new millennium. back except for one time this past December when my uber-friendly woman Uber driver with the heavy Southern accent patted the front seat as I got in and said, “Come sit up here with me, honey!” Learning that I was headed to a medical center for a scary test, she suddenly raised her head skyward (I was kind of wishing she’d keep her eyes on the road), and began a prayer for me that lasted pretty much the whole trip. “Lord Jesus, I am here with your servant Inga and I pray that in your infinite wisdom you will spare her!” (I figured I could use all the help I could get.) But then the prayer took an ominous turn: “But it’s all up to you, Lord, so if you should decide it’s Inga’s time to join you in heaven then —” WTF? “Wait!” I said. “Stop talking!” As far as I was concerned, we were good with amen-ing after the sparing part. And fortunately, I was indeed spared. (That driver got the War & Peace of good comments from me.) So why don’t I have a perfect 5? Could it be
about the tip? (Or lack thereof?) I confess I do tip sometimes but not always. Uber makes such a big deal about not needing to tip. And it really IS nice not to have to be carrying bills in tip denominations. (Like most people, I live by my debit card.) But maybe this was at least one driver’s way of expressing his unhappiness that I live in La Jolla and couldn’t cough up a tip, my sparkling personality notwithstanding. I’ve even tried to figure out the math of my 4.89. Was it just one driver who really just wished I’d shut up and gave me a 2? Or maybe a couple of mildly tip-disgruntled 4’s? But now that I know my score, I’ll be rigorously checking my rating after every ride. Goes down and that driver is toast. I have a reputation to maintain. — Inga’s lighthearted looks at life appear regularly in La Jolla Light. Reach her at firstname.lastname@example.org

FROM RICHARD SMITH, B1
parents put up with me when I got off the ship. So I essentially lived in La Jolla, except a lot of that time I was deployed overseas. And then from 1971 to 1978, I was stationed in Hawaii. But then I came back for my final tour of duty before I retired in San Diego. We bought this house (on Camino de la Costa), and I’ve been here ever since.”
Y! A D R U T A S S N E P O
What have you been doing since retiring?
“When I retired in 1982, it was a hard time, coming out of the Carter years. You can’t live off your retirement, but I’d put aside enough money we could get by on and I didn’t want to take a job from somebody who really needed it. So I got active in community affairs for quite a while, spent a lot of time doing that. At one point I was vice-president of the La Jolla Town Council, and I was in the Bird Watchers, a community group that preceded the Bird Rock Community Council.”
What got you interested in volunteering?
“A sense of obligation ... somebody had to do this, and I wasn’t doing anything else. I certainly had a lot more time to devote to my community than others, so I did it.”
What projects were going on at that time? “A lot of coastal development permits, development issues.”
Are you a surfer?
“I tried surfing back when I was 13 or 14. The surfboard was an 8- or 9-foot board, and you took off from your knees. I didn’t have the balance to master kneeling (laughs), so I body surfed and skin dived. I was in the ocean every day, but never surfing.”
What has changed in La Jolla?
“The biggest change is that when we moved here, almost everybody who worked in La Jolla lived in La Jolla. My father was a bank branch manager, and his tellers lived here. But you didn’t need the level of income that you need nowadays (to live in La Jolla). I can remember in my early 20s, it was easy to find a place to rent in La Jolla for $100 a month, which with inflation would transfer to $1,000. But still, you don’t find that now in La Jolla. It was a different world. It was hard to see the Whaling Bar go ... but the environment that supported it doesn’t exist anymore. A lot of the local businessmen would go there to have a few drinks before they went home in La Jolla, and a lot of business was done there, too.”
How did you become interested in shoreline erosion?
“I was always interested in the sand and how it moved. Sometimes the north of WindanSea would have a lot, sometimes the south would. And the texture of the sand! Any La Jollan would tell you that The Shores’ sand is the worst sand in the world. It’s sticky, you can’t get it off ... but I noticed that once you get away from The Shores, which has very fine grains, it gets coarse, and The Cove used to be the coarsest. In 1982 to 1983 and 1984 to 1985, we had a lot of really heavy surf storms that took out the sand at The Shores, at Torrey Pines, and what they call Blacks Beach now, that was

Well, it hasn’t come back to what it was in the 1950s and ’60s in the summer. But the cliffs have changed radically. There is some erosion from the top down. Some of the problems are man-made or City-made by poorly designed or poorly maintained storm drain outlets.”
Do you have memories of your early years in La Jolla?
“I was a substitute lifeguard at La Valencia Hotel pool during high school for a couple of years. There was a lady who was the lifeguard, but they needed someone for the weekends. And then their insurance company probably told them they were better off with no lifeguard and a sign that read, ‘Swim at your own risk’ (laughs), because there is no lifeguard there now, and there hasn’t been for many years.”
Old, large, and lecherous, Sir John Falstaff can’t resist the ladies—but they can resist him, and have tons of fun at his expense— and you can have fun, too!
What are some of your routines?
“I used to jog to stay in shape, but in my late 60s, my ankles and knees started saying, ‘You need to do something else,’ so I started swimming. I’d go in down by Bird Rock and I’d swim around, and there are few places to come in, so once you start you have to go all the way until you finish. I did that until the water got down to 60 degrees. Then my back started giving me problems, and I got too old to do that. Now I just swim around WindanSea.”
How did you meet your wife?
“She’s lived in La Jolla since she was 6. We knew each other (back then), because her parents knew mine. She was at my house when I got the news that I had been accepted to the Naval Academy. But I was 18 at the time, and 18-year-olds don’t notice 12-year-old girls. (Years later), I was on leave back from Vietnam, and this friend of mine and I were walking on WindanSea, and she and her cousin where sitting up on the rocks at the Surf Shack, and he went over to say hello, introduced me, and that’s how we met. We started dating in 1967 and we got married in 1969. We have two kids, one is in Hong Kong now, he’s a surfer, and the other one works in television.”

The Kitchen Shrink’s Vegetarian Copycat Cobb Salad
Plant-based pastrami, anyone?
hen my Ottawan cousin recently visited San Diego for a few days of paradise and an escape from her Arctic winter peeked into my refrigerator, her jaw hung open. What happened to her carnivorous cuz, the charcuterie queen? Growing up on the East Coast, we practically sucked in cured, salted and smoked meats intravenesouly, everything from spicy pastrami, marbleized corned beef and pickled tongue to bratwursts and sausages of all manners. Instead, my clean, green fridge was now filled exclusively with organics, including plant-based meats and cheeses, probiotic pickled delights and meatless pates galore. Maybe some of these healthier vegan charcuterie (cured meats — i.e. cold cuts) offerings will convert a few fellow diehard carnivores too.
For those with delicate palates, tofu — also known as bean curd — has been a staple of Asian diets for centuries. These solid white blocks of compressed, coagulated soy curds come in soft, firm and extra firm textures, all having the chameleon qualities of adapting to an array of sweet or savory dishes with a fairly neutral flavor profile. Having a mother
lode of bone-boosting calcium, protein, blood-enriching iron and magnesium, tofu makes a healthy meat alternative whether blended in soups or sauces, tossed in stir-fries, salads, egg scrambles, lasagnas, or as a pan-fried patty chowed down burger style. Tempeh is an ancient Indonesian food made from fermented soybeans and shaped in a densely-packed wedge. A gustatory sponge, this vegan protein with a rich store of calcium, essential minerals and stress-busting Bs seamlessly absorbs flavors, making it an ideal add-in for stews, curries and sauces. Tempeh’s firm texture and zesty flavor lend well to meat and fowl substitutions in chopped and Cobb salads, grilled sandwiches and kebobs. For those who don’t do soy, seitan — nicknamed “wheat meat” — is comprised of gluten, the protein found in wheat and other grains that gives it a chewy heartiness. Reminiscent of luncheon meat in texture, taste and appearance, seitan does a good Reuben, pastrami or other deli fake out sandwich. Other popular knockoff meat products like Tofurkey and vegan bacon called “facon,” usually blend tofu and seitan with smoky flavors to closely imitate the real McCoy.
■ Ingredients (Serves 4): • 1 head Romaine lettuce (cut into strips) • 1 head watercress, torn into bite-size pieces • 16 ounces organic tempeh, cut in slices or wedges • 1/4 pound cooked vegan bacon, crumbled (or turkey bacon if you must) • 1 vine-ripened tomato, diced • 1 avocado, diced • 3 hard-boiled eggs, sliced • 1/2 red onion, diced • 1/4 pound cashew or other non-dairy cheese, crumbled • 1/4 cup vinaigrette dressing ■ The dressing: 1/4 cup vinegar (champagne, red wine or balsamic), 2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil, 2 teaspoons spicy mustard ■ Method: Blend vinegar with mustard. Whisk in oil and seasonings. Toss with the lettuces and cheese. Place the mixture on a large platter. Decorate with the remaining ingredients making mounds or strips across the greens. Finally, coconut jerky from young coconut meat produces a chewy, zippy carnivororous alternative, especially for those with gluten or soy sensitivities.
In a pickle
When assembling a vegan charcuterie board, expand your sour dill pickle horizons with other crunchy and colorfully fermented foods. Load up on a variety of toothsome probiotics like a heap of fermented cabbage. Fresh refrigerated sauerkraut trumps jarred or canned with a bigger bang of friendly flora. For an Asian riff, try spicy kimchi, a Korean
staple of the fermented crucifer, one of the highest probiotic sources on the planet; also rife with Vitamins A to amp up ocular health, stress-balancing B and antioxidant C. Or simply pick a peck of pickled peppers, green tomatoes, cauliflower florets and baby carrots to add an oomph of healthy eye candy to your table. Now, you can veg out on this recipe for a meatless Cobb salad, feeling indulged without the guilt. — For additional plant-based charcuterie recipes, e-mail email@example.com

Feeling under the weather? Let us help you with your congestion or swollen lymph nodes. Voted Best Chiropractor in La Jolla for 4 years!
Free Initial Consultation For All New Patients. The Non-Cracking Adjustments! Active Rest Chiropractic specializes in head, neck and back conditions and Active Release Techniques®. ART is a combination of stretching and pressure point therapy that breaks up scar tissue and knots in the muscles, increasing the body’s ability to achieve and hold proper alignment.
The Non-Popping, Non-Cracking, Gentle Chiropractic Experience One of my personal favorite experiences in the ofﬁce is to watch patients ﬁght an illness and win, without getting sick. Here's how it works: The immune system including the lymph nodes drain the ear, nose throat, sinuses and head. This ﬂuid has to ﬂush down through the neck to work correctly. If there is a blockage to the ﬂow, it backs up and stagnates. When the bones are twisted, and the muscles are spastic it blocks the lymphatic ﬂuid that comprises a major part of the immune system. Restoring balance physically through the body literally clears a stuffy head. Personally, an adjustment makes me feel better, my body comes back online, and the self-healing power inside does the rest. Dr. Collan Koeppen, D.C., of Active Rest, knows what it’s like to have chronic pain. As a child, he suffered a sports injury that knocked his neck out of proper alignment. The ripple effects of this injury caused headaches, behavioral changes, back and leg pain, muscle spasms and more. Not realizing the underlying cause of these symptoms, he treated them with traditional medicine, without a resolution. It was 20 years before Dr. Koeppen found the true healing, an upper cervical adjustment. His chronic pain was relieved, and his mood, energy and performance dramatically improved. Dr. Koeppen now offers this same healing treatment to others. In a relaxing clinic, he specializes in upper cervical care, using a gentle manual adjustment to the vertebrae of the neck and spine without any cracking or popping. He treats patients of all ages, even infants. Dr. Koeppen also utilizes Active Release Techniques® (A.R.T.). A.R.T. is a soft tissue management system that breaks up scar tissue, knots, muscle tension, and nerve entrapment. Many things can lead to body imbalance: a sports injury, repetitive movements, long hours sitting at a desk, driving, a fall, an auto accident, and more. If you are experiencing symptoms or have suffered with them, visit Active Rest to discover how Dr. Koeppen can help you.

‘The Illusion’ set to make mystic magic at North Coast Rep BY DIANA SAENGER The drama “The Illusion,” by Tony Kushner (adapted from Pierre Corneille’s “L’illusion Comique”) will take North Coast Repertory Theatre (NCRT) audiences on an extraordinary journey. NCRT Artistic Director David Ellenstein said he first experienced Kushner’s work when he played an actor in the production years ago at the Arizona Theatre Company. “Kushner actually wrote this before he wrote ‘Angels in America,’ ” Ellenstein said. “It was one of his breakout plays that didn’t have the notoriety ‘Angels in America’ had. But it was successful and played in theaters all over during the early 1990s. Because it’s very unique (and a somewhat complicated play to do), it’s not often done, so people have somewhat forgotten about it.” The plot surrounds a father who is not doing well and so goes looking for the son he hasn’t seen in 15 years after a falling out divides them. When he can’t find his son, as a last resort he sets out to find a magician. The magician conjures up three illusions of his son. Each illusion is a little different. “In essence, the audience is seeing three different plays in one play,” Ellenstein explained. “That was a challenge to stage because if you do it full on — like we are doing — you have each illusion stylistically different with a completely different feel to it. It’s a demand on the North Coast Rep staff, and we rarely put on such a work from the technical design standpoint. It’s almost like doing four plays — one in the cave and then the three illusions. Our scenic designer,
NCRT calls the production ‘a wildly inventive tour de force, which celebrates the magic and illusory nature of theatre.’
Director David Ellenstein works with Andrew Ableson and Christina L. Flynn for Tony Kushner’s ‘The Illusion’ at the North Coast Repertory Theatre, as other cast members look on.
Marty Burnett, has done it again in turning the stage into a big magician’s cave. It’s more than he thought it was going to be, but he’s always up for the challenge and really enjoys what he does.” Performing a production of this caliber required a seasoned cast which NCRT found in Andrew Ableson, Kandis Chappell, Christina L. Flynn, John Greenleaf, John Herzog, Michael Polak, Sharon Reitkerk and Paul Turbiak. “I needed actors who could handle not
only the heightened language but also had the stature and groundedness ... to go not only deep, but also handle the frivolous. I sought experienced actors who would not be scared-off by the demands of this play,” Ellenstein said. “When I was thinking about casting Kandis Chappell, I did my research and found out I was not the first to choose the magician be female. She’s great and does what we like to do in the theater — reach people’s hearts and souls and make them experience things in a more open way.”
Ellenstein said audiences will surely appreciate the production’s dramatic, comedic, romantic and passionate moments, along with the themes of betrayal, reconciliation and, of course, the sword fighting. ■ IF YOU GO: “The Illusion” is on stage Feb. 22-March 19 at North Coast Repertory Theatre, 987 Lomas Santa Fe Drive, Solana Beach.

Bonnie Jones and Suzanne Thorpe, aka TECHNE, lead a workshop in which participants make musical instruments out of circuit boards and then play them — in the dark, super-activated by flashlights — in a Flashlight Orchestra. Jones is an award-winning, Baltimore-based composer and improviser; Thorpe, a much-recorded musician/composer, is a Ph.D. candidate at UCSD. TECHNE teaches tech-driven art-making and musical improvisation to women and girls nationwide.

First AMT Fest kicks off art and science collaborations LET’S REVIEW BY LONNIE BURSTEIN HEWITT The weekend of Feb. 2-4, an ambitious undertaking took place, the brainchild of three local organizations: one art-centered, one scientific and one academic. The first Art/Music/Technology (AMT) Festival was a creative collaboration between San Diego Art Institute (SDAI), the Fleet Science Center in
Balboa Park and Southwestern College in Chula Vista, and included a mix of high-tech demos, panels and performances by experimental artists, musicians, scientists and students. The festival opened Thursday evening with electronic music and video under the Fleet’s state-of-the-art IMAX dome and went on to a Friday full of presentations and hands-on workshops combining art and technology at SDAI. On the last day, at
Southwestern, the focus was on trends in visual and sonic media, including work created by twelfth-grade students at High Tech High School in Point Loma, under the leadership of their teacher, sonic/kinetic artist Margaret Noble. In and around all this, there was plenty of time for networking at breakfasts, lunches and after-parties. In an interview before the festival, SDAI executive director Ginger Shulick Porcella said she and Southwestern College art
professor Perry Vasquez wanted to stage an event to raise awareness of the world-class work in art, music and technology being done in the San Diego area. “We felt there should be more collaborations between art and science, and a strong representation of women, since most high-tech events are overwhelmingly male-dominated,” Porcella said. “So we had community discussions with artists, scientists, musicians and programmers from

both sides of the border, asking what they thought we should highlight.” Fleet Science Center CEO Steven Snyder was someone Porcella wanted to collaborate with, ever since he started the popular “Two Scientists Walk into a Bar” program in 2014, offering opportunities for everyday folk to interact with scientists in casual, pub settings. The result of this three-way collaboration was a three-day event that was part conference and part showcase of tech-driven music and art. Many of the presenters were MFAs and Ph.D.s from UC San Diego, some
now living and working far away. “It went incredibly well for a first-year program,” Porcella said, after the festival. “We had about 75 attendees, and the presenters and audiences all were happy. Everyone, myself included, really loved the hands-on workshops, so we’ll have more of them next year. We’re welcoming people of all ages and backgrounds, we’re keeping prices low, and I’m confident that, as the program grows, we'll get more attendees.” Next year, they said they are planning to partner with San Diego Opera and the University of San Diego.
■ A Scientist and an Artist Walk Into a Bar: On March 9, Fleet Center will again partner with San Diego Art Institute to include artists in their popular ‘Two Scientists’ mix. They invite the public to ask them anything at selected pubs around the county and post the happenings on social media. Most of the participants will be part of SDAI’s upcoming exhibition ‘Extra-Ordinary Collusion: Art & Science Collaboration.’ More details at rhfleet.org/events/two-scientists-walk-bar

SPONSORED COLUMNS STEPHEN PFEIFFER, PH.D. Clinical Psychologist 858.784.1960
Shedding Light on the Age of Endarkenment In January of 2017, over a thousand psychologists convened at the Society for Personality and Social Psychology’s annual conference to discuss the recent uptick in the public’s rejection of scientiﬁc data, especially regarding man-made climate change, vaccine safety, and even Darwin’s 150-year-old theory of evolution. Despite the years, decades, and even centuries of research and data and the almost universal scientiﬁc backing, so many people are denying the validity of scientiﬁc discovery at rates so extreme that the psychologists have termed this the “Anti-
Enlightenment Era.” Psychologists are only beginning to study this phenomenon that leads otherwise intelligent people to reject data that is speciﬁcally data-driven or scientiﬁc in origin and predates the recent presidential campaign and election. Psychologists want to know why people are resisting science, although it is recognized that fear and anxiety are factors that lead people to react emotionally rather than rationally. The new administration, which boasts high-ranking members who have openly rejected scientiﬁc data, can’t be solely to blame. Under the previous administration, which was known to heavily weigh and promote scientiﬁc data, public skepticism of science reached the same kind of fervor that led Galileo to publicly recant his ﬁndings, which had conﬁrmed the earlier theories of Copernicus that the earth revolved around the sun. It seems preposterous to us now that Galileo was tried by the Inquisition for heresy and forced to renounce his scientiﬁc ﬁndings since science has helped us to chart the solar system and beyond, unequivocally
validating Galileo’s 17th century ﬁndings. But that may be central to how we view this question of whether we’re in a post-fact, antienlightenment era. For one thing, people will hold to what they believe is true even in the face of evidence that proves those beliefs to be wrong. They pick and choose facts that reinforce their place in the group with which they identify. Dan Kahan calls this cultural cognition, a protective mechanism that comes into play and which gives people an emotional predisposition to reject a claim that, if they accepted it, would drive a wedge between them and their group of peers. The current problem is twofold: people don’t want their beliefs challenged and will actively seek out sources—reputable or not—that conﬁrm their beliefs. The second problem is the recent proliferation of lies as part of mainstream culture, so mainstream, in fact, that we have a sitting president who was elected despite masses of provable evidence that he regularly lies. He has even employed the term throughout his career, created by his ghostwriter—“truthful hyperbole,”
which sounds awfully close to the phrase “alternative facts.” Lies play tricks on the brain, because when processing a lie, the brain must ﬁrst accept what it hears as true, or possible, before being able to refute it. But that’s where the problem lies, so to speak: refuting the lie is a choice, and one that can be easily disrupted. Some people want to believe the lie if the truth disrupts the familiarity and comfort of their worldview. There is another problem with lies and the human brain: the brain isn’t well equipped to process lie after lie, especially one that gets repeated in the force and frequency of a machine-gun barrage. The brain can grow weary and give up processing the lie from the fact, accepting the lie as true in what’s known as illusory truth. Hence the effectiveness of fake news.

‘This was our wedding day. The two people on the right of us are Diane and Jerry Rothenberg, who were our witnesses at City Hall in New York where we were married. I believe it was Dec. 1961. David was better at remembering dates than I am.’ — Eleanor Antin

David Antin’s Words Live On
Hundreds pay tribute to local poet at The Getty Center BY LONNIE BURSTEIN HEWITT avid Antin, poet, art critic, performance artist and one of the founding professors of UC San Diego’s Department of Visual Arts, died October 2016 at age 84. In his honor, his son, Blaise, established the David Antin Endowed Prize for Excellence in Visual Arts at UCSD. Another great tribute took place at the Getty Center in Los Angeles on Feb. 4, when hundreds gathered for a memorial honoring Antin with what he was known and loved for — a torrent of words. Born and raised in Brooklyn, Antin made a home here in what is now Carmel Valley, but traveled widely, performing the improvised “talk poems” he later turned into written works. His New York Times obituary ended with a quote from one of his books, “Talking at the Boundaries” that reads “if robert lowell is a poet then i don’t want to be a poet if robert frost was a poet I don’t want to be a poet if socrates was a poet i’ll consider it.” The Getty Research Institute hosted the memorial, since Antin had been a scholar-in-residence there, and they owned his archives. They screened old photos, played one of the tape-recorded poems, and 30 former students and colleagues stood up to share their memories — about 3-5 minutes each — a definite challenge for the gifted, articulate folks who were his friends. They rose to the challenge, and his wife of 55 years, performance artist/filmmaker/writer Eleanor Antin, didn’t have to stop them with the cowbell she’d brought along. Among the words spoken: Enthusiastic. Inspiring. Compassionate. Generous. Gracious. Insightful. Eloquent. Original. Clashing intelligence. A bracing, provocative voice. Tremendous humor and brio. A phenomenon. “Talking with David always made you feel you were on the verge of an epiphany,” one said. “His mind was magic,” noted another. His oldest friend, poet Jerome Rothenberg, offered a poem: “Can it be fair to write a love song to a friend? ... And does the poem exist when there is no one there to hear it?... Here is the death we feared/Infinite space to every side ... O my friends, there is no friend.” Artists Debby and Larry Kline called for audience participation in “Cacophony,” asking everyone to read out loud, and at the same time, a poem of Antin’s folded inside their programs. Each piece was different, and the blend of voices created a grand orchestration of his work. At the end, there was family: grandson Zachary and his father, Blaise, sharing personal anecdotes, and Eleanor
David Antin, 1973 concluding with Antin’s poem “History,” a catalog of deaths, wrecks and disappearances. In an interview earlier, Eleanor had talked about their life together: The two New Yorkers — he from Brooklyn, she from the Bronx — first met at New York’s City College. They shared immigrant-parent backgrounds, February birthdays (he an Aquarius, she a Pisces) and an abiding love for art and each other. “He was a philosopher-poet, not only brilliant, but anecdotal and amusing,” she said. “He’d think of something that interested him, talk about it, move around it like he was lost in a forest, but he always found his way out. Then he’d turn the tape recordings of his talks into a literary art form.” He was an athlete, too, she said, going from high school football to running and weightlifting. Diagnosed with
COURTESY FRED LONIDIER
Parkinson’s disease 10 years ago, Antin gradually stopped doing performances, but he went on writing and working out until his very last days. His personal trainer summed things up at the memorial, “He gave his all, until there was nothing left in the tank.” This month, Eleanor will be in New York, reading from her latest book, “An Artist’s Life, by Eleanora Antinova,” a memoir of the former Ballets Russes star she created as a video alter ego decades ago. She will also be at the opening of “100 BOOTS: The LOST Picture Show,” an exhibit of photos from her famed 1970s postcard narrative that never fit into the original exhibitions. “I’ll survive,” Eleanor said, on her husband’s birthday, two days before the Getty memorial. “David helped make me tough, but ‘missing’ is too mild a word for the situation.”

Some of the self-published books by Jeffrey Crimmel
Former La Jollan publishes series of mystery novels
Online Daily. Print weekly. lajollalight.com
BY KAREN BRAINARD Jeffrey Crimmel said he has traveled the world and lived in many places, but it was a chapter of his life when he unexpectedly found himself staying in Ramona after a medical emergency, that led to his mystery series. Crimmel grew up in La Jolla and went to La Jolla Elementary School and graduated from La Jolla High School in the Class of 1963. “The whole series that I started back in 2012, began in Ramona,” he said. The 71-year-old is temporarily living in Ramona and preparing to publish his fourth mystery book. As he explained, he and his wife, Suzanne, were living in San Felipe, Mexico, when his leg started swelling. They traveled to El Centro, California to see a doctor Jeffrey Crimmel who discovered Crimmel had a blood clot in his leg. When medical staff informed him that he would be transported to Sharp Memorial Hospital in San Diego, Crimmel told his wife to go to Ramona where their niece lives because the community was one they had visited many times over the years. During his stay in the hospital, he had an tough experience. The medication he received caused a brain bleed, he said, describing it as a clot on the back of his skull that put pressure on his neck. But it also reportedly gave him the temporary ability to be aware of things before they happened.
Crimmel said for a day-and-a-half, he knew what the nurses were going to say before they said it. Lying in the hospital, Crimmel said he started thinking, “How can I turn this into a story?” He had been writing non-fiction but thought he could work this into a mystery — one where the character kept the ability to foresee things. That led to his first mystery, “Brain Bleed.” That was followed by the sequels “Ian’s Revenge” and “Nab Yoga.” “They’re interesting stories; they’re fun,” Crimmel said, adding that he takes his characters to various countries including Italy, France and Peru — places he knows from his travels. He said he spent nine years going around the world in the 1970s and that was the focus of his book “Living Beneath the Radar.” “I got into Afghanistan before the Russians were there,” he said, likening it to being in a medieval country. Crimmel said he later felt the calling to become a teacher and at age 40, earned a teaching credential. He taught Special Education and retired after 25 years. For him, writing has been a passion and he now has eight books published. “It’s called an addiction, I think, at this point,” he joked. An “indie writer,” Crimmel self-publishes his books, which are available on Amazon, and expects to release “The Hemp Papers,” another mystery, soon. Crimmel said he and Suzanne plan to eventually move to Portland, Oregon where his daughter lives.
