Curse of the Black Widow

Lack of spider anti-venom hurts bitten La Jolla woman BY MARÍA JOSÉ DURÁN n Friday, March 25, Diane Berol was watering the plants in her garden on Avenida Las Ondas when she felt a stinging pain in her left arm. She thought she was having a heart attack. “In that moment I’m thinking to myself, ‘I have to finish watering the big tree, this is the last one,’ ” she said. “And my other thought is, ‘If you keep watering this big tree and you die from a heart attack, then he’s going to die because no one is going to be here to water him.’ ”

The 60-year-old La Jollan was then rushed to the emergency room of Scripps Hospital, where she was diagnosed with a Black Widow spider bite between the fingers of her left hand. But the highly effective treatment for Black Widow bites, Antivenin, is not available at any hospital in San Diego and since 2009, intermittent shortages have been reported nationwide by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP). Berol said she didn’t know when she refused a painkiller shot at the hospital that she was going to suffer one SEE BLACK WIDOW, A3

BY ASHLEY MACKIN Just shy of one year after the La Jolla Community Planning Association (LJCPA) heard (and roundly rejected) plans for a retaining wall on Torrey Pines Road, city engineers returned to the board with new plans — this time with more favorable results. At the April 7 LJCPA meeting at La Jolla Rec Center, the board approved plans for a wall to assist with slope restoration on Torrey Pines Road. The proposed wall, as presented by San Diego Senior Civil Engineer Jamal Batta, would be in an arc-shape at 350 feet long and vary in height from three to nine feet, between Lookout Drive to Roseland Drive. Batta said the new wall would mimic the one along Fay Avenue, across from La Jolla High School, in terms of materials and features. The pricetag is $2.2 million, which has already been set aside for the project. In May 2015, the board heard an earlier incarnation of the plans, but was displeased with the wall’s stark, unnatural appearance and peak height of 25 feet. The wall, which would replace the current (and weathered) concrete retaining wall, has been on the city’s infrastructure bucket list since 2001. SEE TORREY PINES ROAD, A10

New sidewalk and benches coming to Whale View Point BY ASHLEY MACKIN Plans for a sidewalk replacement, artistic whale installation and picnic bench repair under the guise of Whale View Point Shoreline Enhancement Project are progressing, it was announced at the La Jolla Parks & Beaches (LJP&B) advisory group meeting March 28. The overall project — which LJP&B voted to assume management and implementation of from the La Jolla Conservancy in April 2014 — aims to improve the 300-600 blocks of Coast Boulevard, and could take nearly 20 years to complete at a cost of $2.1 million. Although there are several components within the Enhancement Project, from re-vegetation projects to parking reconfigurations, the sidewalk, educational art display and bench repair could yield noticeable results by the end of the year. LJP&B acting chair Bill Robbins observed, “A couple of presentations will have to be made here before these projects actually start, so those interested should come to our meetings.” SEE WHALE VIEW POINT, A16

FROM BLACK WIDOW, A1 of the most excruciating experiences known to man. “The emergency room doctor didn’t tell me what I was in for,” she said. “She didn’t tell me that it was going to be in pain for 48 hours.” The pain from a Black Widow’s bite has been described as “cramping.” It starts at the bitten spot and spreads throughout the body. “The first night, I couldn’t sleep at all, the pain was acute in my hand. I wasn’t crying. I wasn’t screaming. I was just in agony,” Diane said. Merck, the company that typically manufactured the Black Widow spider anti-venom in the United States, stopped making it a few years ago. The medicine could help dissipate the pain within 15 minutes. Diane’s husband, John Berol, said he contacted the ASHP to inquire about the missing remedy. AHSP staff member Bona Benjamin replied via e-mail that they had reported the shortage, but considered it solved in February. However, Diane was sent home on March 25 without an Antivenin shot. Dr. Richard Clark, medical director of the Poison Control Center in San Diego, confirmed the recurring national shortage. “The company doesn’t want to make it anymore. (I guess) they don’t feel like they are making enough money by making it,” Clark said. But Merck, the pharmaceutical company that produces the Antivenin said it resumed the manufacturing in January. “As of

The emergency room doctor didn’t tell me ... it was going to be in pain for 48 hours.

— Diane Berol January 2016, there is no longer a limited distribution in place,” wrote Merck’s spokesperson Pamela Eisele via e-mail. “Prior to then, Merck was carefully managing inventories of Antivenin and shipping this product only for patients with symptomatic bites, within 24 hours of notification.” The only way to get a dose of the Antivenin was if a hospital requested it of the company, which shipped the remaining supplies from previous years within 24 hours. Only in extreme cases will a medical center solicit the remedy. Dr. Clark said he participated in a clinical study with the Mexican company, Biclon, to test another anti-venom, Analatro. The product is currently in Phase 3 of the Food and Drug Administration approval process, which could take years to complete. But the average Black Widow spider bite doesn’t require any special treatment other than over-the-counter analgesics, Dr. Clark said, adding, “If your pain gets really bad, then you should go to a hospital.” Different individuals have different reactions to a Black Widow’s bite. The

number of bites and the amount of venom introduced are other factors in the intensity of pain. Diane discovered she was bit by a Black Widow who had nested in her gardening gloves. When she put them on to cut roses, the initial prick felt similar to one from a rose thorn, she recalled. “It’s said that the more you pinch the Black Widow, the more venom it pinches into you. I believe that it must have been pretty frightened when I stuck my hand it there. It had nowhere to go,” she said. Black Widows usually don’t bite humans, said Dr. Clark. “When they are threatened, they will (bite) and it’s usually when people get near their webs and start disturbing them.” The population of Black Widows in Southern California has diminished in the last decade due to a takeover by one of its relatives. The Brown Widow, a smaller and less hazardous spider, is occupying the niche. Black Widows go out at night, and during the day hide in dark places. Dr. Clark recommends being careful outside, especially around those spots where spiders might nest or create their webs. As a precaution going forward, the Berol family said they won’t leave any items outside that a spider might crawl into. The Black Widow bite is rarely lethal. Only in cases where the patient had an allergic reaction to the anti-venom have deaths been reported in the United States. If you think you’ve been bit by a Black Widow spider, contact the California Poison Control System 24-hour hotline at (800) 222-1222 for treatment recommendation.

Planners elect new board, debate Bird Rock, Muirlands projects BY ASHLEY MACKIN La Jolla’s Community Planning Association (LJCPA) swore in new and re-elected trustees during its April 7 meeting at La Jolla Rec Center. Among its first actions as a newly formed board, the planners elected new officers to serve for the next year, discussed a proposed mixed-use project in Bird Rock and heard from residents concerned about the bulk and scale of a Muirlands project. To formalize the election of the new trustees, San Diego City Council President Sherri Lightner presided over the oath of office. “I want to start by thanking all the trustees — current, former and newly elected — for all the hard work and time you put into serving your community,” she said. “It is an important role you play with the planning process here in San Diego.” After the new members were sworn in, Cindy Greatrex was re-elected president, Helen Boyden (who termed out as secretary) was elected first vice-president, Bob Steck was voted second vice-president and Janie Emerson was elected treasurer. No secretary was elected and the item will be readdressed next month. On the agenda for full presentation and vote were the mixed-use project for Bird Rock, located at 5656 La Jolla Blvd., and a Spec House planned for 921 Muirlands Drive. ■ Bird Rock mixed-use project: After garnering approval from La Jolla’s Development Permit Review committee (DPR), a LJCPA sub-committee, applicant Claude-Anthony Marengo sought from LJCPA a Coastal Development Permit and Site

small. “The idea was that if you limited new development in La Jolla to two stories, you would get smaller buildings and we wouldn’t look like a big, overbuilt city,” he said. Then Little questioned the 12-foot ceiling height of the retail ground floor and the nine-foot ceiling height for the upper residential units. “Just because you can do something, doesn’t mean you should,” he said. However, Marengo said the project has been presented to several sub-committees and


area advisory groups, and that the project meets all applicable building regulations, such as Floor-Area Ratio, setbacks, height limit, parking and more. “There are limitations, and they are there for a reason,” he said. “You can’t place a line that we can build to, then criticize us for building to that line. Who judges how close to the line we can get?” Marengo added the 12-foot ground-floor height would attract larger retailers that are

The market has also reportedly shown that people prefer taller ceilings in residential areas, which is why his project has a higher roof. “We are a product of the economy and the people that are searching for design in development,” he said. “We’re not doing this just because we feel like it.” A motion to support the project passed, 12-3-1. ■ Muirlands Spec House: Residents opposed to a proposed Spec House (short for Speculative House, where the developers do not actually live in the home) at 921 Muirlands Drive came out of the woodwork to discuss the house’s bulk and scale. The project applicants, Zephyr Partners, requested a Coastal Development Permit to demolish an existing residence for the construction of a new 8,885 square-foot, two-story residence with attached garage and a 703 square-foot guesthouse on a 30,056 square-foot lot. Although La Jolla’s DPR committee approved the project, LJCPA voted to send it back to them for further

discussion. After neighbors who charged the house would be two or even three times the size of their homes spoke, Zephyr Partners representative Mike Lake said the Muirlands neighborhood has different sub-developments. “Sometimes you’ll have areas of 10,000 square-foot lots next to 20,000 square-foot lots. That’s what’s going on here,” he said. Nevertheless, nearby residents John Dyer and Ruben Islas expressed concern over the size of the house, and the outreach done ahead of the LJCPA meeting. Dyer, who has lived in La Jolla since 1997, said he did


not know the project was underway until story poles, which mark a project’s height at various points on the property, went up near his yard. “I had no idea what was going on until those poles went up, and the concern among the neighbors is that this property appears to be about five times the size of area homes,” he said. Lake said neighbors were notified about the project by mail, but not all said they received the notice. One of them was Islas, who said the project will be “right in my backyard,” and that he was unaware of it until just before the CPA meeting. “These architects have designed an amazing McMansion. It’s going to be humongous,”

Islas said. Lake said he would work with neighbors to assuage all concerns, but Islas said he was extremely worried about privacy and the view of a large house so close to his property. He added that had he known that DPR was discussing the item, he would have stated his opposition sooner. Faulting the required notification system, CPA trustee Ray Weiss said somewhere in the process, something went wrong. “It might have been the fault of the city or someone not reading their mail, but it’s a big deal. The fact that it is a Spec House makes it a bigger deal because the people who build it won’t have to live there and deal with the neighbors. The incentive they have to compromise is less than what would have been there if the builders were living in the house.” Added trustee Little, “The most progress we make is when the neighbors and the developers take the time to negotiate and come to something reasonable. I think that’s the path this needs to take.” LJCPA voted to send the project back to DPR, 13-1-2.

Research links lack of sleep and cancer biology


leep is the best meditation, says the Dalai Lama. It may also be the best medication. Sufficient sleep – seven or eight hours each night – is important to healing, proper immune function and mental health. Inadequate sleep has been associated with a host of ailments, from obesity and diabetes to stroke and heart disease. Add cancer to the list, particularly breast, prostate and colorectal. A 2014 study, for example, found that women who suffer chronic lack of sleep are more likely to develop more aggressive forms of breast cancer or experience recurrence. Another 2014 study reported that men with insomnia have a twofold greater risk of developing prostate cancer. And a 2010 study, which examined the sleep quality of persons prior to undergoing a colonoscopy, found a 50 percent increased risk of colorectal cancer in those who slept less than six hours per night. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common disorder involving disrupted nocturnal breathing that results in fragmented sleep. It is estimated to affect at least 13 percent of men and 6 percent of women, with prevalence growing as the population becomes more obese (a major cause of OSA). Not surprisingly, OSA is already associated with heightened cardiovascular

problems, such as arrhythmias, systemic hypertension and myocardial ischemia. In addition, there are neurocognitive consequences, such as excessive daytime sleepiness, poor job performance and greater risk of accidents. But emerging evidence suggests OSA increases cancer risk as well. For example, epidemiological studies have found that persons with untreated, severe OSA have a greater risk of developing cancer than those without OSA. These studies report that cancer patients with solid tumors, such as colorectal, lung, pancreatic or liver, and severe untreated OSA have a five-fold greater risk of dying earlier from cancer than those without OSA, due to the repetitive swings in the patient’s blood oxygen levels as the result of the untreated apnea. In a mouse study, animals with melanoma that undergo conditions that simulate OSA experienced larger or more aggressive tumors. Recently, with support from Peter Farrell, Ph.D., founder and chairman of ResMed, a maker of diagnostic and therapeutic devices related to sleep disorders, Atul Malhotra, M.D., chief of the division of pulmonary, critical care and sleep medicine at UC San Diego School of Medicine, and I hosted a two-day symposium with participants from UCLA, Boston University, Stanford, Duke, Johns Hopkins and the Sanford

Burnham Cancer Center. The goal was to make connections, share notes and begin to define a scientific path toward better understanding the link between sleep and cancer and therapeutic remedies. Attending and presenting were some of the recognized experts in this budding field: Paul E. Peppard, Ph.D., associate professor of medicine at University of Wisconsin-Madison and a sleep epidemiologist whose work was among the first to note the link between OSA and cancer; David Gozal, M.D., chief of pediatrics at University of Chicago, whose work has involved the mentioned mouse studies; and Avirum Spira, M.D., of Boston University, who recently published a study in the New England Journal of Medicine on biomarkers of cancer risk. From UC San Diego were Pablo Tamayo, Ph.D., co-director of genomics and computational biology at Moores Cancer Center, Lyudmila Bashenova, M.D., associate clinical professor of medicine; Kathryn Gold, M.D., associate professor of medicine, Robert Owens, M.D., associate professor of medicine and Mark Fuster, M.D., associate professor in residence. Highlights from the symposium will be published for further dissemination in the scientific community. And with added support from Farrell, seed money will soon be made available to jump-start the science of sleep and cancer here. Given the local talent, leadership and financial support, UC San Diego has the potential to become a leader in tackling the fundamental questions about sleep and cancer biology. This is a wake-up call and a call to action. —Scott M. Lippman, M.D., is Director of UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center.

To Do or Not to Do Pre-Listing Inspections? You stand to earn a return closer to your list price by completing a home inspection. When a buyer completes a home inspection they will invariably discover flaws in the home which may come back to the seller in the form of a buyer’s request for repairs or credit from the seller. For every flaw a buyer finds in a home inspection that would cost $1000 to fix, a seller stands to lose $3000-$5000 off of one’s asking price. Flaws that are not unveiled to a buyer before their own inspection are perceived as more egregious than those that are disclosed beforehand. A seller gains a considerate amount of leverage in the negotiating process by having a pre-listing home inspection. Many inexpensive repairs can be handled by the seller, prior to putting their home on the market. For more information in regards to the benefits of pre-listing inspections, please contact Janet Douglas and Molly Olen.

The current retaining wall on Torrey Pines Road is slated for replacement. FROM TORREY PINES ROAD, A1 San Diego City Council president Sherri Lightner, in attendance at the April 7 LJCPA meeting, said she is in support of the new proposed wall. “This is a project that has been in the works for quite some time … and in its third revision. This project is a key step in the overall improvement of Torrey Pines Road and is closely aligned with the upcoming Torrey Pines Road Corridor Project Phase II.” Pending full environmental review, construction would being in fall 2017, following the summer construction

moratorium, and would likely take four to six months. Batta said he is “very familiar with projects in this area of La Jolla,” having managed projects near La Jolla Cove and a storm replacement project under Torrey Pines Road, and he assured the board that traffic would not be impacted. He said two lanes of traffic in both directions would remain open, with the center lane used for equipment storage. “We have experience with that area and with traffic management, so things should run smoothly,” he said. Hopeful for some form of terracing or plant-life, several members questioned

The proposed ‘slope restoration’ wall for Torrey Pines Road would mimic this retaining wall found on Fay Avenue. vegetation options. Plans currently call for some type of climbing vines that would grow up the wall to “break up” the appearance. But because of its close proximity to a public walkway and the fact that other projects would be taking place along Torrey Pines Road in the coming years, Batta said there was not enough room to accommodate the sidewalk, the wall and additional greenery. The Torrey Pines Road retaining wall is a proverbial “Phase One” of the next Torrey Pines Corridor Project installment. As such, Batta said, “Any delays on this project would delay further the corridor project and other

improvments along Torrey Pines.” Intended to ease pedestrian activity, the Torrey Pines Corridor Project Phase II would see the installation of an asphalt concrete overlay; a buffered bike lane and a non-raised, decorative median pedestrian; and a pedestrian-activated crosswalk mid-block between Amalfi Street and Princess Street. The system would be a pedestrian-generated crosswalk that uses light signals to dictate who can proceed in traffic. When not in use, the system is dark, and traffic flows uninterrupted. A motion to approve the revised plans as presented passed.

Sidewalk replacement

The new sidewalk will cover the current dirt walkways along the parks of Whale View Point, and connect existing segments of concrete sidewalk with an ADA-compliant walkway. “I’m happy to report that I have a rendering from the City of San Diego detailing what the sidewalk is going to look like,” said Whale View Point organizer Ann Dynes. “My contact at the traffic engineering department advises that it will be five-and-a-half feet wide, plus the curb, and they will relocate the signs and the trash cans (that are currently along the walkway).” Dynes added her contacts at the city “all but promised me this will be ready to roll this fall” after the summer construction moratorium. “It’s not an easy design to have in compliance with all the city regulations … so the fact that they have fast-tracked this to get it done this year should really be appreciated.” Because the trash cans would have to be moved to accommodate construction, LJP&B member Jane Reldan questioned whether this would be an opportunity to rework the placement and number of trash cans along that street. “They overflow and it’s not just a weekend problem anymore,” she commented. Added member Patrick Ahern, “In between the picnic area and the people’s wall (where there are no trash cans), that is a long way to go where people can just throw trash on the street, so maybe one could be added somewhere in between.” Dynes responded, “The transportation department manages the sidewalk and the

Walkways along Coast Boulevard that line the Whale View Point area will be replaced with ADA-compliant sidewalks. Park & Rec department manages the trash cans. But they will have to work together because the trash cans currently impede the walkway and will have to be relocated. It’s not clear where they are going to put them … but Park & Rec is going to task itself with that.” Although slated on the agenda as an action item, Dynes was not able to distribute the renderings to everyone on the board, so members did not vote on the proposal. The board instead voted to approve the concept to “keep it rolling,” with more formal plans to be presented this summer. Dynes also said she would request information about the trash cans.

Educational installation

Another piece of the plan that Dynes is working toward is the “Educational Plaza,” which as outlined in the Enhancement Project, would “create a seaside plaza … (with) educational signage, plaques and interactive features (to) establish a greater connection of visitor to site. Outdoor classroom, surfers hangout, community gathering ... the possibilities in this flexible


Some benches along Whale View Point are cracked or have exposed rebar. space are endless.” The location would be the large flat area around 300 Coast Blvd., where there is currently a sewer station underground. “The original plan had very elaborate proposals for the area … instead of elaborate art, we would still like to pursue a fairly simple stencil of some kind,” Dynes said, adding that in honor of its namesake, they would like an image of a California gray whale. “The idea was to go out with the kind of paint used to paint sidewalks, so it will stay on the ground for a while, and paint a California gray whale with a calf, heading northbound or pointing southbound if its singular (to be in accordance with its breeding and migration patterns),” she said. “The marine art would add a touch of beauty to what is otherwise an ugly piece of concrete. There is also the possibility of a small sign explaining the migratory patterns of the whales.” Dynes reported that several artists came forward to carry out the design, but she has not selected an artist or a rendering yet. Although early feedback has been mixed,

the overall consensus of the board was to have Dynes continue on that trajectory, as long as the art was minimalistic and discreet. “My goal is not to have this be something people would drive hundreds of miles to see. It’s just a simple thing to beautify the area that you wouldn’t notice unless you were right there.” Dynes said she would return with feedback from the city and any other new information, so the educational art display will also be discussed at a future meeting.

Bench replacement

Eyeing a fall target date, Dynes said the picnic benches along Coast Boulevard that have fallen into disrepair could be replaced. “If you go down there now, there’s a lot of rebar showing and broken pieces,” she said. “I got several offers from families who would like to donate to fix or replace the benches and dedicate them to someone. So finding the money will not be the hard part.” However, to honor the benches that have already been dedicated, Dynes said she would have to research whether they could add new plaques to the benches they plan to replace, or install brand new benches in addition to the ones already there. In the meantime, she said, the city’s Park & Rec department committed to making immediate cosmetic changes to the existing benches. “So we will circle back to the bench project this fall,” Dynes said. — La Jolla Parks & Beaches meets 4 p.m. fourth Mondays at La Jolla Rec Center, 615 Prospect St. Agendas are posted at La Jolla Rec Center, 72 hours in advance of the meeting, and at

Celebrating 25 Years in La Jolla


La Jolla Country Day junior David Brewster (5) makes a move on La Jolla High freshman Cavan Walsh (36) on Saturday. Brewster and Walsh each scored goals in the game as the visiting Vikings edged the Torreys 8-6.


Visiting Vikings edge La Jolla Country Day, 8-6 BY CHRIS SAUER hile both teams were satisfied with their play in Saturday’s boys lacrosse rivalry game between La Jolla Country Day (Torreys) and La Jolla High (Vikings), the visiting Vikings were just a bit happier thanks to their 8-6 victory. The contest, which was between two groups of players that are very familiar with each other, went back and forth after La Jolla (9-2 through Saturday) took a 3-1 lead near the end of the first quarter. The Torreys (5-5 through Saturday) countered in the second period, eventually pulling ahead 5-4 on a goal from junior David Brewster. With LJCD still up one entering the fourth quarter, the Vikings scored the final three goals of the game to notch the win. “This is a big rivalry, these guys know each other and La Jolla Country Day is a good team so we were both ready to go,” said La Jolla coach Tom Duerr, who has coached a lot of the players from both teams in club play. “We started getting ground balls and face-offs in the second half and then some of our leaders stepped up and we started running team offense. At the end, we finally got some goals in the cage.” Duerr mentioned that the leadership and strong play of seniors Connor Usselman, Kyle Jetter and Christian Vincze, along with junior captain Tyler Cook, was huge on Saturday. Cook, particularly, came up big in the decisive final period, first by connecting on a leaping shot to tie the game at 6-6 with 11:21 remaining. Just over two minutes later, he set up teammate Cavan Walsh with a nifty feed and the freshman converted to give the Vikings the lead for good at 7-6. The final goal of the match came at the

Despite Smith’s 13 saves, the host Torreys dropped an 8-6 decision. end of a nice passing sequence, junior Tanner Watson completing his hat trick with 3:28 to go. “It was all about ball movement, I have great teammates and if I didn’t have teammates like these I don’t think I would have gotten three goals,” Watson said. “(Playing the Torreys) is really fun because we know a lot of them, they know a lot of us and it’s just a great time to come out here on a Saturday and get a W.” Even with the good teamwork, it certainly wasn’t easy for the Vikings — the top-ranked team among San Diego Section Division II schools — because of the stellar play of LJCD goalie Andrew Smith. The senior standout had 13 saves on the day to help his team stay close. “Our goalie had a really nice game,” said Torreys coach Rory Hyland. “It was an opportunity for a good upset for us, so for us SEE VIKINGS, A20

La Jolla High junior Tanner Watson (2) — who had a hat trick in the game — works against La Jolla Country Day defender Jacob Church (16) in the Vikings’ 8-6 road win on Saturday. FROM VIKINGS, A19 to put ourselves in a situation like that, where we could have had a nice win over a good team, is excellent.” Smith’s counterpart Morgan Watson, only a freshman for La Jolla, had eight key saves of his own including a couple of early stops to help his team take the quick advantage.

After older brother Tanner Watson opened the scoring, senior Alex Barry made it 2-0 Vikings before three minutes were gone. LJCD senior George Little got his team on the board, but Cook then made it 3-1. Junior Alex Mow opened the second period by winning the draw for the Torreys, and that possession ended with a goal by senior Kieran Jha. Mow captured

the ensuing draw and, less than 30 seconds later, Jha rattled the cage again to tie the contest at 3-3. The Vikings briefly grabbed the lead back when sophomore Finn Walsh absorbed some big punishment while scoring to make it 4-3, but LJCD bounced back with a couple of unlikely plays. First, it was junior defender William Pollack

taking the ball all the way down the field and using his long pole to rip a goal. Two minutes later, Brewster made a similar play, taking the ball the length of the field and using a nice spin move to put his team up 5-4. Just before halftime, however, Tanner Watson’s second goal — on which he came from behind the net then bounced off of two defenders — tied the game at 5-5. Torreys sophomore Chase Mangini scored the only goal of the third quarter — off a feed from Jha — and then La Jolla’s three-goal final period sealed the win. “The guys are just gelling really well,” Duerr said after the victory. “Everything is going great, at practices, off the field and on the field, we just have to be more consistent.” The Vikings play at Bishop’s on Thursday. As for La Jolla Country Day, Saturday’s close loss was the first of many upcoming games against tough opponents. The Torreys play at Francis Parker on Thursday and Carlsbad on Friday. “The season just gets harder from here,” Hyland said.

Menehune Surf to turn Sweet 16

BY ASHLEY MACKIN Celebrating its own “Sweet 16,” anniversary, the Menehune Surf Contest for children and teens returns to La Jolla Shores 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday May 7. But over the years, the contest has evolved to become more inclusive and do more to give back. The event now includes divisions for parents and adaptive surfing for challenged athletes, and participants who entered the contest when they were little groms (surf slang for children) are coming back as young adults to volunteer. The one-day judged event for surfers 18 years and under includes Longboard, Shortboard and Novice divisions, as well as the crowd-favorite “Super Menehunes” division for those 6 years old (non-judged). Heat times based on age will be published Friday before event, and the deadline for entries is April 27. Entry fees are $30, $60 and $90, depending on age, number of entries and categories. The event is free for spectators. Named for mythic Hawaiian people, said to be “dwarf sized,” the Menehune Surf Contest includes a judged surfing competition, and a party with raffles and silent auctions to raise money for beneficiaries. This year’s beneficiaries are Scripps Institution of Oceanography, Friends of La Jolla Shores, Junior Lifeguard Foundation of San Diego and Natural High. “Years ago, the La Jolla Shores Surfing Association was just a group of surfers who wanted to get our kids involved in the principles of community and giving back, while enjoying and appreciating the ocean and surfing,” said contest director Stephanie Hoffman. To recognize the families that have taught their children to surf and encouraged participation in the contest, La Jolla Shores Surfing Association president Lorraine Schmalenberger said organizers introduced judged heats for parents a few SEE SURF, A27

OUR READERS WRITER Why I don’t support the proposed MAD

Executive Editor • Susan DeMaggio (858) 875-5950

I am against the Maintenance Assessment District (MAD) initiative that is being debated for the No. 1 reason that it is just another tax. As a property owner and future business owner, I think we are paying our fair share. The highlights mentioned for needing this new tax are over-filled trash cans, dirty sidewalks, etc. I volunteered for more than six months (every morning) picking up trash in the Village. With the help of members of the La Jolla Merchants Association we were able to deal with the city and find solutions to this problem: a couple of trash cans were moved to higher traffic areas and the city service manager in charge of trash pickup was very helpful and hands on — even coming to the Village twice to do a walk-through to see what else could be done. I question the group Civitas out of Sacramento, which is involved with this whole assessment and wonder why this is so important to them? I remember talking to a business owner one morning and he told me the story of his mother, who every morning, personally policed the front and back of her salon before business day. That’s more practical then adding more taxes to businesses — especially with the new bill passed raising the minimum wage to $15. Jeff Gerwin , Ex-volunteer trash guy

I know several perfectly intelligent and thoughtful property owners who live within the boundaries of the proposed Maintenance Assessment District (MAD) who are strongly opposed to it. I accept that there will be differences about a MAD and certainly agree with the Weiss’ (letter in the April 7 Light) that this proposal will not solve all conflicting uses within the Village. And even though we don’t know yet how it will interface with other groups in the Village, I think it’s a concept we should try. We suffer from both a lack of City of San Diego resources to maintain the aesthetics we want and too many merchants who do not maintain their properties in a responsible manner (e.g., think about where you bought your groceries today). The strongest argument I’ve heard from private owners is that they feel they are already paying enough property taxes. I’ve worked with several well-meaning city employees over the last two years on the Whale View Point project; public employees do what they can with the city resources



Thanks for the article last week about the recent graffiti and tagging along Coast Walk Trail. I spent a day removing 99 percent of it on Coast Walk. Chris Cott allotted to La Jolla but it’s not enough to maintain the Village in the kind of condition which it would be as a separately incorporated city, like Santa Monica or Coronado. The opportunity to incorporate La Jolla as a separate city has past. We can continue to live in a special community that looks neglected and worn, or we can pay less than $90 a year to support our responsible merchants, and many, if not most, of our non-profits in this effort. I also am pleased by the opportunity, as a resident in the MAD, to potentially participate in its governance and to contact it when I see conditions or situations around the Village that need addressing. I would love to see the residents of the MAD come together in support of the community where we walk and shop every day. This may be primarily a merchants’ issue, but as residents we have a chance to be participants in the evolution of a new approach to beautifying the Village for the betterment of residents, our nonprofits and merchants alike.

We should ban sandwich board ads in the Village I am so happy to see an interest in the “eyesore boards,” as I call them. They are a distraction; a nuisance to view, walk by and around, and unnecessary. La Jolla would look so much more attractive without them! We deserve more attention from San Diego about this. The city should not only enforce, but simply get rid of the sandwich boards, as this might be the easiest solution to their proliferation. Anne Gilchrist

OUR READERS WRITE (CONTINUED) many of us who enjoy this outdoor art museum by filing a complaint with the City Code Enforcement Agency, which calls his new artwork an “unpermitted structure” and demands that he remove it. This small edifice is, in fact, a sculpture in the form of a small, open-air cylinder in which six or so guests fit comfortably. They can gaze out at his stunning oceanview through the wall’s many small apertures decorated with tiles, glass gems, wire fastenings and multimedia inlays. Every inch is a creative adventure. Sometimes, students from Muirlands Middle School gather along his attractive yard, even acting like, for shame, kids let out of school! One neighbor suggested turning a hose on them, but instead, Nasser invites them in and has given them art lessons. Now others come regularly for that gift. Nasser Pirasteh is an acclaimed artist whose work appears internationally in public spaces and private collections. He was resident artist for Minnesota Schools, 1988 to 1999. La Jollans

are fortunate to have him among us and should protest this punishment. Phyllis Minick

SCAM ALERT: Never hit 90# on your phone I dialed “0” to check out the following scam and the operator confirmed that it was correct, so please pass it on to everyone you know. (l also checked out the Internet reference for urban legends, folklore, myths, rumors and misinformation.) I received a telephone call last week from an individual identifying himself as an AT&T Service Technician (it could also be Telus), who was conducting a test on the telephone lines. He stated that to complete the test I should touch nine (9), zero (0), the pound sign (#), and then hang up. Luckily, I was suspicious and refused. Upon contacting the telephone company, I

was informed that by pushing 90#, you give the requesting individual full access to your telephone line, which enables them to place long distance calls billed to your home phone number. I was further informed that this scam has been originating from many local jails. Do not press 9, 0, # for anyone. If this happens to you, end the call immediately without pressing the numbers. Once you press the code, the company can access your SIM Card and makes calls at your expense. After checking with Verizon, the company also said the scam was true. Al Thomas Editor’s Note: The Federal Communications Commission confirmed the scam and offered these What You Should Know tips: • Telephone company employees checking for technical and other types of telephone service or billing problems would not call and ask a subscriber to dial a specific series of numbers before hanging up the telephone

receiver. • Telephone company employees would not request subscribers to connect the caller to an outside line before hanging up the receiver. • These types of calls are made to trick subscribers into taking actions that will enable the caller to place fraudulent calls. • This scam only works if your telephone is served by a private branch exchange (PBX) or private automatic branch exchange (PABX).

CORRECTIONS ■ The April 7 sports story “Vikings vanquish Knights in rivalry match” should have stated that Drew Hemerick of The Bishop’s School was a freshman (not sophomore as reported). ■ To clarify a sentence in the April 7 story about the new mural in La Jolla Shores, “Demos Gracias,” it should be understood that is the first and only mural of the 16 existing Murals of La Jolla currently on view throughout La Jolla to be located in The Shores.

Stella Maris Academy to host Open House, April 28 BY LINDA HUTCHISON t almost 70 years old, the Stella Maris Academy looks back on a rich, proud history. But, just as important, according to Principal Patricia Lowell, the school is preparing today's students for the future with a well-rounded, modern education. The school was founded in 1947 as the affiliated parochial school for Mary, Star of the Sea Catholic Church, established in 1906. (Stella Maris is Latin for Star of the Sea.) It offers a faith-based education for grades TK to 8. While Stella Maris focuses on an authentic Catholic identity, it also includes students who are not Catholic or even Christian. "When parents come here on tour, they sense a welcoming spirit," said Lowell. "They are drawn to the identity of strong values and responsibility, discipline and innovation. We develop and nurture the whole child. Parents are looking for challenges but also a sense of welcoming." On Thursday, April 28, parents can tour Stella Maris during an open house starting at 1:30 p.m. And at 5 p.m. the science and engineering clubs as well as other students will show off their expertise at a science fair. The school emphasizes Science, Technology, Engineering, Art/Design and Math (STEAM) as part of its academic approach. “We offer a rich

For example our science classes and lab teach students to use their skills and think critically,”

she added. Next year students will benefit from an expanded technology program. “We will be using Wi-Fi and tablets in the classrooms, even in kindergarten,” said Katie Zack, vice principal, who also teaches grade 4 and high-tech curriculum for grades 7 and 8. “Students will be

learning to design websites, code and use technology for research and writing,” she said. Other programs at Stella Maris include regular Spanish lessons for all students, sports, clubs, lessons in social skills and volunteer work. With a strong emphasis on civic involvement, students understand the importance of introducing themselves and explaining what they are working on, said Principal Lowell. As they walk around La Jolla, “the kids feel they are part of the community. As they participate in several projects, including Casa de Mañana, they are learning interaction and to become better global citizens. We are proud of our graduates,” she said. With a 100 percent acceptance rate into private and public high schools, Stella Maris graduates are very prepared and continually test in the top percentile, explained Lowell. “We are the only Blue Ribbon School in La Jolla.” Stella Maris occupies three buildings on Herschel Avenue behind the iconic church on Girard. “Our parish is more than 100 years old. We have a feeling of history, yet state-of-the art, up-to-date curriculum. It's a perfect combination, a great balance,” said Lowell. —Stella Maris Academy, 7654 Herschel Ave., La Jolla.

D’Angelo to mark 25th year in dentistry at Open House, April 21


ocal dentists, Dr. Joseph D'Angelo and Dr. Ashley Olson, are expanding their practice into newly remodeled space and are excited to celebrate with an Open House, 5-8 p.m. Thursday, April 21 at 1111 Torrey Pines Road. The Open House also commemorates Dr. D'Angelo's 25 years of service in La Jolla. He opened his doors in the summer of 1990, and before long won over the community. Dr. D’Angelo and his wife, Lisa, have raised their children in La Jolla, and enjoy their involvement in local organizations. For the last several years, he has been voted the best dentist in La Jolla by the La Jolla Light's annual reader’s poll. In 2012, Dr. Olson joined the practice. Inspired by her former career as a businesswoman in the medical device industry, she went back to school to earn her dental degree and pursue her passion of patient care and clinical dentistry. Together, Dr. D’Angelo and Dr. Olson offer an unusually comprehensive and collaborative approach to the care of their patients. Beyond the basic services they offer, such as exams,

HONOR A LIFE Call Cathy Kay



La JoLLa — John K. Pollard Jr., PhD of San Diego, Ca, passed away peacefully on March 31, 2016, at the age of 91. John was born on September 8, 1924, in Northampton, Ma, where he grew up, attended school and also became an Eagle Scout. He went on to attend the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and UMaSS eventually receiving his PhD in Botany from Cornell University. after finishing his doctorate at Cornell University and teaching for a short time, he and his wife Florence packed their family of five into their 1958, 21 window, Volkswagen Bus driving across the country to Pasadena, Ca, to begin his life work as a bio-chemist for Calbiochem, where he eventually was awarded many patents in the field of health and biochemistry. In the late 60’s he and his partners at Calbiochem purchased 18 acres of land from the University of San Diego in a flat and mostly barren area called Torrey Pines Mesa in La Jolla, California. Welcoming

them gladly, the City of San Diego rezoned the area for Research and Development and in 1971 they moved from Los angeles into their beautiful facility on Torrey Pines Rd. in La Jolla and “The Mesa” has since become a world recognized scientific mecca. an avid book collector from early childhood, John amassed a collection of first edition Children’s books comprised of works by american and English authors of the late 19th and early 20th centuries including Horatio alger, Victor appleton, William Baker, Gerald Breckenridge, Thornton W. Burgess, Edgar Rice Burroughs, allen

Chapman, Elmer Dawson, Fremont Deering, and many more. He donated his collection of over 2600 titles to Cal State La in the late 1960’s where it is well taken care of today. Being a lifelong investor, after retiring from Calbiochem, John became a financial consultant eventually opening his own boutique stock brokerage firm with his son Ray in Del Mar, Ca, called Polpar. John and his wife Florence were avid horse racing fans beginning at Santa anita and eventually becoming members of The Del Mar Turf Club for a consecutive 46 years. He was also a long suffering Padre and Charger fan. With his young daughter, Madeline, John attended the September 21, 1971, Padre game against Houston that went 21 innings staying the entire game just to have Padres take the loss 2 to 1. John will be remembered by all that knew him for his brilliant mind and wicked wit. He was a lifelong learner on many topics and provided funding and

support for the education of his descendants. He concocted a series of family Christmas cards that are still remembered fondly by friends and family today. He edited the Calbiochem product newsletter/catalog with clever cartoons and sayings unique for its time. He spent many years as a regular at the Pasadena Ice House as a fan of the Smothers Brothers and Irish Rovers. He spent years at the La Jolla Comedy Store trading barbs with the best comedians. at one point the late Robin Williams gave him the nickname of “Mr. Tuesday Night.” Preceded in death by his devoted wife of 45 years, Florence ann, in 1992, he is survived by his five children, John III, Jared T., Ray ET, Madeline (Pollard) Eiden and Florence S. Pollard. He also has 11 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren. a private family gathering will be held on april 20, 2016. Please sign the guest book online at obituaries/lajollalight.

Charles Lewis Favor July 29, 1930 - March 24, 2016

La JoLLa — Charles Lewis Favor was a humble and honorable man, born in Littleneck, New York, and raised in New Jersey, where he grew amidst the beauty of the majestic woods. at the age of 13 Charles’ parents put him on a train going west to attend the orme Country School in arizona, where he lived and learned for three years. He continued to work there throughout high school, becoming one of the main ranchers and learning the ways of the West. after graduating high school, Charles bought his own ranch in Ridgeway, Colorado, and forevermore he had the

heart of a cowboy. He met his wife, Louise, at a Christmas party in 1960. They had two boys, Paul and andy, and in 1965 their family moved farther west to La Jolla, California. Charles was extremely involved in his boys’ lives, even taking on

the role of Scout Master in their Boy Scout troop. In La Jolla, Charles became a mortician. There could not have been a kinder or gentler spirit than Charles, and he blessed enumerable families over the years with the thoughtful and dignified way he had of handling the end of others’ lives. In 2008 Charles and Louise purchased a home in Montana, and they spent their time between the two locations, soaking up the beautiful country that he loved so much. Charles is survived by his wife of 54 years, Louise; sons, Paul and andy; daughters-in-law, Kristi and Lisa; and grandchildren, Katherine, Zachary and

andrew. He will forever be remembered for his selflessness, quiet humility, honesty and deep wisdom. Thank you to his dear friends, family and Hospice By the Sea for all of your love and care. Services will be held on Tuesday, april 19, 2016, at 11am at the La Jolla Methodist Church, 6063 La Jolla Boulevard, La Jolla, Ca 92037.

Volunteers needed for Half Marathon BY HENRY CHIU Some 10,000-plus runners are expected to participate in the 35th annual La Jolla Half Marathon race — organized, staffed and produced by the Kiwanis Club of La Jolla — starting 7 a.m. Sunday, April 24 at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. By 11 a.m., the last runner is expected to cross the finish line in La Jolla’s Scripps Park. This is the main fundraising event for the Kiwanis Club of La Jolla, and proceeds are granted to schools, community service and youth service organizations in La Jolla and the greater San Diego area. This year for the first time, registration and check-in will be held at the Del Mar Hilton Friday, April 22 and Saturday, April 23. As in previous years, there will be a shuttle bus service for race participants to the start and finish areas of the race. Due to construction and street repair activities in the Shores’ area, the course map is slightly different this year. (See the website for updates.) The bulk of the Half Marathon’s staffing is done by community volunteers. If you are interested in helping, visit


Katrina Schwatz’s design for the 2016 Meneuhune art contest will grace event T-shirts. FROM SURF, A20 years back. “The Shores is such a family place that through the years, we’ve started to see surfing families. So it occurred to me to get the moms and dads involved,” she said. The dad division is called the DOG (Dads Of Groms) and the mom division is MOB (Moms On Boards). Since then, Schmalenberger said, “It’s

been wonderful to see the tables turn so the kids can cheer on the parents. It’s also so fun to hear the kids talk up their parents and give them advice – its hilarious. It’s become very popular.” Last year, the contest added an adaptive category for those with injuries, whether they be a menehune or a veteran. In its first year, the adaptive standing and prone divisions were not

judged. But this year, the challenged categories will be. “Through our connections on the beach, we learned veterans are returning from overseas, so we’ve noticed more surfing veterans,” Schmalenberger said. “A lot are amputees, but others have less visible injuries such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder or brain injuries. Having them participate is a great way for our group to honor veterans.” Hoffman added there would also be division for children with injuries and/or amputations, with many signed up to participate. “It motivates the children to see someone without an arm go out and surf and have a great time,” she said. To help organize the event, Hoffman said she has the help of several menehunes who are not so little anymore. “We see the kids that started surfing in this contest when they were 5 years old that are now teenagers coming back to volunteer the day of the event. More and more, I get calls from them asking how they can help.” In recent years, she added, the contest has grown from around 20 to nearly 200 entrants and another 50-plus volunteers. For the last 10 years, LJSSA has also sponsored an annual art contest, to find original artwork to grace the event T-shirts. This year’s winner is Point Loma High School student Katrina Schwartz who received $100 for her winning design. The top 40 entries will be exhibited at La Jolla’s Riford Library youth wing until mid May at the 7555 Draper Ave. library. —More event information at

Surf Diva celebrates 25th year



Let Inga Tell You



wrote my very first La Jolla Light column about Winston in 2009, and he’s been a regular subject ever since. He started out as our son and daughter-in-law’s beloved dog but from earliest puppyhood spent long periods of time with us. (We have the teeth marks in the furniture to prove it.) At some point in Winston’s commuter career – we’re not sure when – this little dog completely insinuated himself into our lives and hearts. Ultimately he became ours full time. It’s been said that pets are the relatives you wish you had, the ones who love you unconditionally and never bring up those awkward moments in your life. I guess it’s no accident that Man’s Best Friend can’t talk. Winston brought out a side of Olof that I’d never before seen in my former Air Force pilot husband. He and Winston were constantly chatting, Winston listening raptly as Olof provided interpretive services for Winston’s end of the conversation. As they watched sports together, I'd hear Olof yell, “The hell you say, Winston! That guy was OUT!” When Winston was having a bad medical night, Olof would be on the floor at 3 a.m. leaning against the bookcase, Winston pulled across his lap, stroking his furry body until he fell back asleep. As a joking nod to who really owned this house, Olof began doing nightly “turn down” service for Winston's bed, fluffing up the pillow then laying a dog treat and Winston's duck on the edge. On Sunday mornings, in what we dubbed his “spa treatment,” Olof gave the blissful Winston a warm soapy massage in the tub with medicated shampoo. Meanwhile, Winston loaded the dishwasher with me at night, sneaking licks when he thought I wasn’t looking. He helped me water the patio plants, chasing rivulets of water down the bricks. When I SEE INGA, B3

House of the Rising Suh lights up MCASD downtown BY LONNIE BURSTEIN HEWITT o Ho Suh may not be a household name to most people, but he’s definitely a rising star in the wide world of museum installations and public art. And if you’ve walked around the UC San Diego campus, looking up from time to time, you’ve surely seen his piece, “Fallen Star,” one of the stars of the Stuart Collection — a small house tilted precariously on the rooftop of the Jacobs School of Engineering. Now more of Suh’s work is on view in a solo show at the Museum of Contemporary Art’s downtown location. Like “Fallen Star,” the exhibit highlights the artist’s preoccupation with the idea of home. Using translucent polyester fabric and slim stainless steel tubes, he has created an ethereal version of his New York City apartment, complete with major appliances, which visitors are invited to enter. It’s hard not to be blown away by the luminous, full-scale apartment, all pale pastels, with a flash of red staircase. Even the gallery’s security guard, Juanita Hayes-Vickers, couldn’t get over it. “It’s so wonderful, it tickles your belly!” she said. In contrast, the black-walled adjoining gallery displays individual specimens of fixtures in the apartment, offering a totally SEE DO HO SUH, B20

did my yoga exercises on the floor, Winston created a new pose, Cat and Cow Over Dog. In the warmer months, I’d sit outside with my book in the evenings and Winston would receive his many friends in the neighborhood. Now home every day as retirees, we became adept multi-taskers, able to read the newspaper or type with one hand, and play tug with the other. The downside of his living with us was that his allergies and ear infections were far worse here than in L.A. I wrote recently about our all-out efforts, including a trial vegan diet, to help him feel better. We joked that our motto was All Dog, All the Time. But it seemed like we had finally turned the corner and found a treatment plan that worked for him. We were in San Francisco at a family wedding when the call came. Winston, whose soft head we’d patted goodbye only that morning, had died suddenly in our living room, an apparent heart attack. He was eight. That Sunday was one of the worst days of our lives. We stood on the front porch not wanting to turn the key. Finally inside, Winston’s leash was, as always, by the door, his toys strewn around the floor, his arsenal of meds on the counter, his bed next to our bed, his bowl still half full. Instead of being greeting by a 58-pound explosion of ecstatic wiggles, there was only a heartbreaking silence. A red-eyed Olof said it was as if the air had been sucked out of the house. The next day, we were able to go see him at the vet’s office. His little paws in front, he looked like he was just sleeping. I pressed my head to his cold forehead and rubbed those wonderfully silky ears one last time and thanked him over and over for bringing so much love and joy into our lives. People have tried to console us by saying that Winston didn’t want to die in front of us, but it was so much worse not being there. Never mind the trauma for the poor pet sitter. We should be clear. The mailman is not mourning Winston. Probably not our lawn service either. He was leash aggressive and he snored like a stevedore. He failed with five dog trainers. Or maybe we failed with five dog trainers. Winston always obeyed the trainers just fine. But over time, even what might have been deemed annoying

Winston, 2007-2016


habits, just became incorporated as Life With Winston. He had a sixth sense for placing himself in the most inconvenient place possible. Olof said we should take the box with Winston's ashes and place it on the back door mat so that we'd always have to step over it to have breakfast on the patio. We’re 68. We’ve lost cherished friends — and parents (to cancer) — but prior to Winston, neither of us had had a dog in four decades. Winston’s passing has just flattened us. Do people lose resilience to loss as they get older? A dynamic of three has precipitously been reduced to a dynamic of two, and the household is suffering grievously for it. Winston was just so much of a part of our minute-by-minute lives and we can’t help but be reminded of him dozens of times a day. I still leave room in the dishwasher for his dishes, and can’t bear to vacuum up the dog hair from my car. Olof stands in our doorway at night looking at the floor where Winston’s bed should be. For two people who never went looking for a dog, that sneaky little guy totally took us hostage. The profound ache we feel just won’t go away — nor, maybe, should it completely. Any creature — human or animal — who makes such an in-road into one's heart deserves a place there forever. —Inga’s lighthearted looks at life appear regularly in the La Jolla Light. Reach her at

Work by La Jolla student artists, hopeful for money for college, will be on display and up for popular vote at La Jolla Riford Library and the Farmers Market this weekend. As part of the C2 Gallery of Dreams contest, students submitted artwork to qualify for $1,000 toward their college education. The work will be unveiled Saturday, April 16 outside of the library, 75556 Draper Ave. and voting will be open 10 to 11 a.m. The next day (Sunday, April 17), the work will be moved to the Open Aire Farmers Market at La Jolla Elementary School, corner of Girard Avenue and Genter Street, and voting will be open 6:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Out of fairness to all the La Jolla participants, La Jolla Light has decided not to name any contestants nor print their work. Phillip Ayres, C2 Education San Diego district manager, said the Gallery of Dreams contest encourages area students to draw their interpretation of their academic dreams and submit the work for a chance to win money for college. The second place winner will receive a cash prize of $750 and third place will receive $250. All participants will receive a $30 gift card to Warwick’s Bookstore. The winner will be announced after all the results are tallied, likely the following week. C2 Education is a network of educational support centers with a focus on subject tutoring, SAT/ACT test help and college readiness. C2 has about 140 company centers nationwide, including its new La Jolla location at 7660 Fay Ave. More details at

Grasset Collection masterpieces on view at San Diego Museum of Art FROM SDMA REPORTS uropean masterpieces from the Grasset Collection are on exhibit through Aug. 2 in “Brueghel to Canaletto,” at The San Diego Museum of Art in Balboa Park. The exhibition features 40 of the finest still life and landscape paintings from leading Dutch, Flemish, Italian, Spanish and German artists of the 17th and 18th centuries, which have never been displayed


publicly. The “show” was made possible by a loan from the private art collection of the Grasset family of Spain, which Juan Manuel Grasset agreed to because of the connection he has established with museum director Roxana Velásquez and the prestige of The San Diego Museum of Art. Grasset was born in Madrid in 1927, a descendant of a family of French civil engineers who arrived in Spain about 1855

to build the railway system. He started collecting art in the late 1960s in Madrid, where there was a very limited, and somewhat tainted, market. The themes for art in Spain were mainly religious images or portraits of nobles and kings and Grasset liked neither. Spain was a very different country from what it has become. Under the first decades of dictatorship of General Franco, the nation

was politically and economically isolated from the rest of the world. The national currency (peseta) was worth nothing outside Spanish borders, and strict legislation prevented funds from being transferred abroad and controlled all artwork entering and leaving the country. After discovering a new world of art during a visit to London, Grasset began purchasing works by Dutch and Flemish masters and


bringing them home to friends and family who were amazed at the type of art they had never seen before. “These paintings represent more than flowers and still lifes – they convey the ephemeral nature of life,” said museum director Velásquez. “The works reflect a pivotal time in history as art became a more accessible commodity, and the masters of this period became more technically advanced as a result. We are thrilled to debut this exhibition in its entirety for the very first time and to share it with the San Diego community and its visitors.” After the end of the exhibition, highlights will be on display at the museum for three years, providing an addition of 17th-century works to the museum’s collection. ■ IF YOU GO: The San Diego Museum of Art is at 1450 El Prado in Balboa Park. Admission: $4.50-$12. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily (closed Wednesdays) and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. The museum will also be closed Thursday, April 28 and Monday, May 2 to prepare for the annual Art Alive floral exhibition. (619) 232-7931.


The San Diego Museum of Art Executive Director Roxana Velasquez welcomes guests to the exhibit opening on March 31 and introduces members of the Grasset Family of Spain.

Auction, lunch, boutique shopping to headline Women of Dedication lunch BY MARÍA JOSÉ DURÁN ver the past 35 years, Karin Friedrich Donaldson has given much of her time to improve her community. “I love volunteering because I’m able to use the gift God has given me to better the lives of people that have less than I do,” she said. Donaldson started volunteering in the 1980s at the La Jolla Presbyterian Church and in 2013 was elected President of the Women’s Auxiliary of the Salvation Army. She left office and now the evangelical organization wants to honor her. Donaldson is one of the four women of La Jolla who will be honored at the 2016 Women of Dedication luncheon, 10 a.m. Wednesday, April 27 at the Manchester Hyatt, 1 Market Street San Diego. The event will include a vintage boutique market, lunch and an auction. The other honorees from La Jolla are Valerie Cooper, Lise Wilson and Charlotte Perry. Altogether, 15 women from San Diego will receive the lifetime achievement award at the luncheon from The Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary, which has honored more than 500 community volunteers since 1955. This year, the event will be more action-oriented and the honorees will


be greeted on stage. “It’s going to be a different format than other years, I hope it’s going to be a lot of fun,” said Sherry Ahern, who is co-chairing the luncheon with Susie Spanos and Susan Oliver. Some of the items on sale during the auction include throwing a first pitch in the Padres-Giants game, a field pass for a Chargers game, a week stay at Rancho La Puerta for two, lunch with Mayor Kevin Faulconer, and a cooking demonstration and dinner at True Foods with chefs Nathan and Michelle Coulon. “This is our only fundraiser, per year, that we do, so we need to make it unbelievable because we need the money,” Ahern said. The funds raised will go to the Salvation Army projects that need it most, including the homeless men’s shelter downtown, which will be rebuilt to accommodate the more than 450 people the organization feeds daily. A second facility in Kearny Mesa, Door of Hope, will also be financed to continue offering housing to homeless women with children. ■ IF YOU GO: Tickets are $125 per person or $1,250 for a table of 10 at For more information, contact Pamela Lennen at or (619) 446-0273.

Kitchen Shrink’s Key Lime Blisscotti

In the limelight with lemon’s close cousin


he produce aisles are popping with mounds of vibrant emerald citrus — lemon’s petite and lively relative. Limes pack a bitter lip puckering punch, more acidic with less sugar than lemons, while enjoying their own flavor profile. Growing up I didn’t cotton to this green beauty as my dad always slathered on a sickeningly sweet lime-scented after-shave lotion that made the real fruit off-putting to me. Years later, I’ve embraced this sassy citrus to dial up everything from salsas, ceviches, stir fries and rice dishes to cocktails, mocktails and key lime cookies and pies. Here’s a primer on this zippy little squirt. The Lime’s Lineage Limes are natives of Southeast Asia with probable origins in Indonesia. Arab traders transported these green gems to eastern Mediterranean climes in the 900’s. From there, limes trickled into Spain via the Arab Muslim Empire, where they were cultivated throughout Europe. Columbus has been credited with bringing limes to the West Indies, while Spanish explorers introduced them to Florida, still a major lime producer today, along with Mexico, Spain and India. Juice It Up Lime’s best asset is its immune boosting Vitamin C load. This was recognized by the British Royal Navy in the early 1800s. Sailors were given a daily ration of lime or lemon juice

added to their grog (diluted rum) to ward off scurvy, bringing about the moniker “limey.” Limes also have a rich store of Vitamin A for skin and ocular health, calcium and phosphorus to amp up bone strength, potassium for fluid balance, magnesium to dial up energy, while maintaining the heart and blood vessels, folate for normal cellular development during pregnancy, and important trace minerals, including zinc, selenium, and copper. Key to Success The Persian or Tahitian lime, a hybrid cross, closely resembles a lemon in shape, but usually slightly smaller with a delicate green rind, and a seedless, redolent light green pulp. The Key lime (also called Mexican or Bartender’s lime) from Florida is smaller and sourer than its lime sibling, rounder in shape with yellow nuances in its thinner skin, along with seeds. When picking limes choose smooth, glossy, supple-skinned ones without blemishes, shriveled rind or brown spots. They should have good heft, be firm, but also yield to pressure. Your Main Squeeze Spunky and refreshing, the lime’s peel or zest, juice, pulp and even leaves are attention grabbers in a wide range of drinks, dishes, and condiments in various ethnic cuisines. Limeade, flavored sparkling lime water, margaritas and gimlets quench a parched thirst, while lime

■ Ingredients: • 3 eggs • 1 cup of white cane sugar • 1/2 cup of vegetable oil (I prefer grape seed or safflower) • 1 tablespoon of fresh squeezed Key lime juice • Zest from 2 Key limes • A few drops of vanilla or almond extract • 3 cups of unbleached flour • 3 teaspoons of baking powder • A pinch of salt • 1 teaspoon of Key lime liqueur/schnapps (optional) • 1 cup of chopped, toasted nuts (pecans, macadamias, almonds, your choice) ■ Method: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Beat eggs and sugar in a large bowl. Add the oil, extract, twists, wedges or slices make eye popping garnishes to cocktails and beers. Use lime to dial up risottos and pastas, taboulis and stir-fries, grilled chicken and wild caught salmon, halibut and sea bass. Perk up corn and green salads and slaws, salsas and seafood cocktails with chile-lime dressings. Grate zest into cookies, cakes, quick breads, cheesecakes, scones, pancakes, jams and preserves. Or whip up the iconic Key Lime Pie, a

liqueur and juices. In a separate bowl, combine remaining dry ingredients. Blend the flour mixture with the egg mixture gradually until it forms a dough ball. On a parchment-lined cookie sheet, form four oblong loaves. Bake 20-25 minutes. Remove the loaves and cut into slices, 1-inch wide. Return to the cookie sheet, placing the fingers sideways. Bake for another 10 minutes or until golden brown, turning the biscotti mid-way. Serve with coconut ice cream or citrus-flavored gelato or sorbet. — For more lime recipes, e-mail

Floridian concoction that is beloved worldwide. Cook’s Tips Like lemon juice, squirt lime juice on fresh cut fruits like bananas, apples and avocados to preventing oxidation or browning. For the sodium-conscious, use lime juice as a salt substitute.When juicing limes, store at room temperature, and roll several times with your palm against a hard surface to increase the juice yield.

In 2011, she was his canvas at Noel-Baza Gallery, where he drew on her body as she moved through the ultra-slow motions of Butoh dance.

Gallerists Danny and Elsie Arredondo pose with the trio of artists after the performance. multi-artist exhibition at Cabrillo National Monument where his striking “Siren Song 2015,” a series of lifesize, black-on-white portraits created on the day of the event, converged the hero’s journey in Homer’s “Odyssey” with the journey of contemporary immigrants to this country. “Siren Song 2015” was the seed of “Heroic Procession.” When Marilu Salinas — born in Tijuana, based in San Diego — saw the piece at Cabrillo and met Hugo and Theresa, the three decided to collaborate on a performance project portraying the perilous journey of migrants from south of the border with music, movement, and on-the-spot drawing. At 6 p.m. on March 26, with several dozen people gathered inside Monarch/Arredon and the doors opened wide to viewers in the street, Salinas picked up her violin and Crosthwaite began drawing on a white sheet of paper covering a gallery wall. In a minute, with swift strokes, he’d created the emotion-filled face of the first of his

migrants. Salinas went from violin to keyboard and electronics, and Magario slithered in, doing her personalized version of Japanese Butoh, imitating the antlers Crosthwaite had given his migrant with her bony, expressive hands. The music was haunting, and the electronic track included voices in English and Spanish — Ann Coulter, and the Mexican actor/comedian TinTan — and gunshots. “It was so powerful, so moving,” said gallerist Elsie Arredondo. “The drawing, the music, the movement — so eerie, but it fit. I really choked up when I heard the gunshots. I felt as if I was in the artwork.” Arredondo hopes to have the trio of artists back again. “And we’re hoping other artists contact us about collaborating on special events,” she said. “We’d like to make the gallery an art and culture hub. For ‘Heroic Procession,’ we literally opened our doors to the community. That’s truly what we’re working toward.”

Faulkner classic adapted in ‘Way Downriver’ By Diana Saenger William Faulkner’s story “Old Man,” about a historic flood that ravages the countryside of the lower Mississippi, became a classic over time, digging deep into the human experience of dealing with the forces of nature. Edward Morgan, a writer of plays, cabaret shows and adaptations, has reformed Faulkner’s “Old Man,” renamed it “Way Downriver,” and North Coast Repertory Theatre’s (NCRT) Artistic Director David Ellenstein is directing the drama, onstage through May 8. “The story is essentially the same,” Ellenstein said. “The adaptation is much more theatrical, personal and opened up. In the ‘Old Man,’ the characters didn’t even have names. This is a great story and this adaptation is more accessible and audience friendly.” The “Old Man” is a metaphor for the Mississippi River, and the context of the play is the record-breaking great Mississippi flood of 1927 (still on record as the greatest natural disaster in the history of the United States). “It’s what happens to the people in this story, not the flood, which is just a backdrop and the catalyst for what makes the human interactions happen,” Ellenstein said. The play deals with honor, security, fate, irony, perseverance, and one’s choice of values — all tied up in one man’s journey. “This man is a mixed bag; he’s dealing with catastrophe and other human beings who are at odds with him, and what he has to

The cast includes new and returning NCRT actors: Richard Baird, Geno Carr, Benjamin Cole, Sara Fetgatter, Robert Grossman, John Herzog and Max Macke. “Way Downriver” has only been staged once before, three years ago at the Alabama Shakespeare Festival, as part of its Southern Writers Project. As the second production, Ellenstein said he is extremely excited about it.

“It’s theatrical, funny, entertaining, jumps around, has music and is profound,” he said. “It uses actors in a good way in that they sometimes play double characters… and it’s cleverly staged as you have actors acting out the story at the same time someone is telling the story, which creates a fun dynamic. I’m really jazzed about this play.” NCRT’s 34th season is nearly over and in retrospect Ellenstein said he’s very happy with the results — NCRT inked deals

ENCINITAS The surprises of offshore spring wildlife


pring is a great time to be near the water and out along the coastline. Besides the abundant sunshine, blooming wildflowers and cool spring breezes with the change in season, there is a shift in the variety of wildlife in our local waters. We are coming to the end of the gray whale (Eschrichtius robustus) migration as the whales return to frigid northern waters to feed for the summer. Many of them have traveled past with new calves that were born in the lagoons in Baja, Mexico and we won’t see them again until November, when they return south. But with that season past, there are new surprises out there every day. Blue whales (Balaenoptera musculus), the world’s largest creatures, have begun showing up and more will been seen through the summer; they visit the productive waters here to eat krill (a shrimp-like creature). In the same family as blue whales, humpbacks (Megaptera novaeangliae) always add to the excitement out on the water. They breach often and have recently been a regular sight among whale watching boats. Humpbacks are popular and easily recognized whales, with their long pectoral fins and knobby heads. They are also known for their complex songs. In addition, bird enthusiasts are never disappointed with the variety of birds

‘Home Within Home,’ a watercolor. FROM DO HO SUH, B1 different experience, almost meditative. Encased, out of context, the softly-glowing, see-through toilet is an object worthy of quiet admiration, a miracle of detail, every tiny, stitched-fabric screw in its place. In a room by itself is the “Secret Garden,” a 1/16th-scale replica of the Korean home and garden Suh’s father built installed on a mini-truckbed, as ready to travel as Suh is, with a video of its proposed Seoul-to-New York trip on the wall behind. But wait, there’s more: A selection of Suh’s works on paper, done in watercolor, colored pencil and multicolored threads, and a gallery

‘Toilet’ is one of the appliance ‘specimens’ on display. dominated by the blueprints he made of his New York apartment — actually rubbings he did by taping sheets of tracing paper to the walls and rubbing blue pencil over them. “He’s kind of dissecting the place and re-assembling it, as in a dream,” said Kathryn Kanjo, MCASD’s Deputy Director and curator of the exhibit. “He’s like a couturier, making clothes for the inside of the house. He has these two sides — tightly analytical architectural renderings (his brother is an architect!) and a dreamlike, playful sensibility.” Kanjo said she first met Suh ten years ago in San Antonio’s ArtPace, where he was working on a cyclone sculpture with a Korean house crashed into it that he called “Fallen

‘Secret Garden,’ with video. Star: Lone Star Edition.” “He worked hard, made a lot of models; he was always busy experimenting,” she said. “When I came to San Diego in 2010, I was thrilled to find the project was in process here.” I was thrilled to do a walk-through of the new exhibit with Kanjo, whose comments enlivened every piece. She pointed out Suh’s preoccupation with connections — the webs and paratrooper cords in his watercolors

and thread-paintings, the fact that thread itself is something that connects us — and noted how often his paper works show corridors, doors and other things we travel through. She also mentioned that installation of the major pieces wasn’t easy: “It took 10 days to install the apartment,” she said. “We have no ceiling here; we needed struts and wires to hang it. And even the toilet was hard to assemble.” Originally organized by The


Contemporary Austin, the Do Ho Suh show is terrific, a haunting look at the artist’s life and work that makes you see ordinary objects — like toilets and circuit boxes — in a new way. Don’t miss it. ■ IF YOU GO: The Do Ho Suh solo exhibition is on view through July 4 at Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, 1100 Kettner Blvd. Downtown. Hours: 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Closed Wednesdays.

Accident & Injury Legal Advice 858.551.2090

Avoid El Niño Car Breakdowns with a Spring Cleaning Car Checkup Spring is the time to thank your hardworking vehicle for a great performance over the winter by doing a maintenance overhaul. There are several things you can do yourself and with the help of a mechanic to ensure that your vehicle is prepared for top performance this spring and summer. Use the following tips to manage your vehicle

effectively and avoid accidents and expensive maintenance concerns down the road. Fluid Levels Keep an eye on your brake fluid, antifreeze, windshield washer fluid, engine oil and transmission fluid. It’s a good idea to consider a brake fluid flush as well to make sure your brakes are working in top condition. Wires, Plugs and Batteries Anything older than three years old should be replaced as should any weak wires, plugs or batteries. Hoses and Belts If your belts are soft, brittle, cracked or worn, consider replacing them. Anything older than five years old should also be replaced.

Tire Pressure Make sure that all of your vehicle’s tires, including the spare, are properly balanced and inflated. Making this a habit will decrease the chances that you’ll find yourself on the side of the road with a flat tire. Brakes A brake pad change and an inspection for the brake system can work miracles for your San Diego vehicle. This is especially true if heavy rains are anticipated, because you’ll rely on the braking system performing at 100%. Engine Filter It’s a good time to replace your engine filter as you head into the spring, as it’s likely that there has been a lot of build up over the winter months.

Wheel Alignment and Suspension Any time you hit major potholes, you can do significant damage to your struts and shocks. Make sure you ask your mechanic to conduct an inspection to avoid bigger and more expensive problems down the road. After a season of tough conditions, it’s a good idea to have your wheels aligned properly. Following these tips can minimize your maintenance costs overall as well as decrease the chances of you being involved in an accident as a result of poor vehicle maintenance.

Ticket holders will be able to participate in interactive art elements and watch live artwork being created. Musical entertainment will be provided by Lee Coulter and Josh Damigo. Last year, $36,000 was raised at the event with 400 guests in attendance — making it the most successful gala in the chapter’s history. The funds were used to support volunteer programs like Beach Cleanups, Rise Above

Plastics, Hold On To Your Butt, No Border Sewage, Ocean Friendly Gardens, Know Your H2O, Beach Preservation, and the chapter’s newly launched Ocean Friendly Restaurant campaign, which will work with restaurants to reduce their plastic footprint. The protection of San Diego County’s oceans, waves and 70 miles of beaches would not be possible without the support of a dedicated grassroots force of volunteers, and from events like the annual Art Gala. This is an age 21and over event. Tickets are $60 and include entry, food and drinks. Order online at or or contact Amanda Hall at (307) 752-5071 or
