BY MARÍA JOSÉ DURÁN C San Diego chemistry graduate student Cliff Kapono has surfed waves all over the world, collecting body surface and fecal samples from fellow surfers to answer the question: Do those who surf in different oceans and seas have the same bacteria and/or chemicals? An aggregate of microorganisms (including bacteria, fungi and viruses) inhabit the human body and, in some cases, are essential to its functioning. But there are other organisms living on humans that, whether or not they make people sick, are harmful. “There have been studies that show people who recreate in the ocean are more likely (than those

There have been studies that show people who recreate in the ocean are more likely (than those who do not), to become exposed to harmful bacteria.

— Cliff Kapono A UCSD chemistry student who plans to finish his Ph.D. thesis on surfer’s biome by the summer who do not), to become exposed to harmful bacteria,” Kapono told La Jolla Light. “So we have reason to believe surfers might be exposed to harmful bacteria, and we want to be able to identify some of this bacteria,

JOEL SCHUMACHER

and if so, we can point to sources of exposure and this knowledge may help us keep our beaches cleaner.” In fall 2016, Kapono embarked on a worldwide adventure to surf in remote places and connect with surf

communities to ask for samples to bring home to analyze at the UCSD labs of biologist Rob Knight and pharmacologist Pieter Dorrestein. He named his project the “Surfer Biome” and visited England, Ireland, Morocco, San Diego, San Francisco and Hawaii, from where he hails. “I usually spend a few sessions surfing with people out in a place, I make friends, and then, hopefully, they’re willing to participate,” Kapono said. “It’s easier to recruit (surfers) in water than on land. Once you’re out in the water, for the most part, there’s not as many rules. It’s just you and the other person in the ocean.” The collected samples have been sequenced (transformed into data) SEE OCEAN BACTERIA, A20

Mayor’s $3.6 billion budget focus: Infrastructure, safety, services BY ASHLEY MACKIN-SOLOMON San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer released his proposed citywide budget for Fiscal Year 2018 (July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2018) on April 13 and despite some “belt-tightening” and an overall reduction of 3.5 percent, the Mayor said the budget allows for continued focus on “street repair, public safety and delivering neighborhood services.”

He wrote in a public announcement: “This $3.6 billion balanced budget plan prioritizes core community services and emphasizes funding for neighborhood improvements, street repair and public safety while making the largest infrastructure investment this decade. This budget … includes funding for nearly 350 miles of road repair, staffing to keep hours at our libraries and

recreation centers at the highest level in a decade, resources to make housing more affordable and reduce homelessness, four new academies for police recruits, and more.” However, there is also a reduction in in “non-personnel expenditures of $4.7 million for Arts and Culture funding.” SEE BUDGET, A6

Couple Cares About Climate Change

La Jollans spearhead effort to end fossil fuel use

MARÍA JOSÉ DURÁN

Derek and Nancy Casady pose with some of their rally signs at their home in La Jolla.

BY MARÍA JOSÉ DURÁN Nancy and Derek Casady (ages 75 and 81, respectively) have been in the front row of the Climate Change fight since 2014. They live in La Jolla with their daughter, Jennifer, and son-in-law Jerry Phelps, and granddaughters, who also collaborate in the trenches. “We have a wonderful family life, and that’s one of the things that moved me (to start this effort),” Derek told La Jolla Light. “I don’t want to be on my death bed and my granddaughters come and say, ‘Grandpa, things have gotten really intense with Climate Change, did you do anything?’ They’re going to know that we did, because they’re watching us all the time.” Jerry is their Facebook page editor, Jennifer helps out with the logistics, and one of their granddaughters has created the Environmental Club at her high school, while organizing the Climate Change Warriors at a nearby elementary school. At times, they perform at the Casady’s rallies. Since 2014, they have organized five Climate Change rallies in San Diego, evolving from 300 people at their first (March 2015) to 1,000 attendees at their last (February 2017). They created the San Diego Climate Mobilization Coalition, part of a nationwide effort (The Climate Mobilization) that recruits politicians, holds demonstrations and rallies, and gives presentations to generate pressure for the fight against Climate Change.

“The average citizen needs to understand that the United States energy policy needs to shift,” Nancy started. “The average person needs to understand the severity of the threat, the need for action, and that in the U.S., when the people speak, policy changes — but we need to speak.” For 20 years, Nancy was general manager of the Ocean Beach People’s Organic Food Market and currently is an appointee of Gov. Jerry Brown to the State Board of Food & Agriculture. “I’m hearing every month from farmers who are losing crops, not able to plant, and seeing pest invasions they’d never seen before. The whole food system is under tremendous stress because of changes in the climate,” she said, adding that a lot of people “just haven’t connected the dots. “What’s going to happen is that it’s going to become personal, and that’s why so many women came out (for the San Diego Women’s March on Jan. 21),” continued Nancy, who’s also treasurer of the La Jolla Democratic Club (LJDC). Derek, who is LJDC president, added that he comes from a family with a social activism tradition, “I joined my first Democratic Club when I was 17, and my mother was president of it.” Their next Climate Change rally will be 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 27 at Liberty Station, but the couple plans to remain active until then, participating in the San SEE CLIMATE CHANGE, A8

La Jolla Shores Association supports Princess St. beach access BY MARÍA JOSÉ DURÁN The La Jolla Shores Association (LJSA) board at its March 12 meeting approved a motion to support the California Coastal Commission (CCC) in its quest to reopen public beach access on Princess Street. The access lane has been closed off for decades, pending a legal battle between the adjacent property owner Ure Kretowicz and the CCC. In 2016, the California Supreme Court rejected an appeal, ending the quarrel,

and the CCC confirmed to La Jolla Light in January that easement documents had been filed. “It’s over. Now we just have to find someone to take the responsibility, the insurance and all that,” said beach-access advocate Melinda Merryweather. The rocky beach, which sits under a 55-foot natural bluff, is disconnected most of the time from the main sandy beach of the area, La Jolla Shores, but may be accessed

during low tide. Merryweather explained that many beach-goers find themselves stranded at the pocket beach when the tide comes up. “It’s a really dangerous place, I’ve been trapped there before, and I know a lot of people have been trapped there — kayakers, surfers, divers,” she explained, adding that a neighbor used to throw a rope down to rescue those who couldn’t get out. San Diego Lifeguard Sgt. Travis Gleason said more research was needed on the topic,

Beach access advocate Melinda Merryweather speaks out for stairs down to the beach at Princess Street during the March 12 La Jolla Shores Association meeting. and added that he generally approves of increasing public access to the beach. “I’m in favor of opening up as much of our coastline as possible, so people can go down and recreate, and have a good time on our coastline,” he explained. However, Gleason also warned board members that in other areas of San Diego, isolated pocket beaches promote illegal behaviors. “You just have to go down to Ocean Beach and get an example of what that looks like (at Sunset Cliffs). Typically, we have a pocket beach that’s easily accessible, yet isolated, where you’re going to see an increase in drinking, using drugs,” he reported. LJSA trustee Dede Donovan expressed concerns about the safety of the pathway. Merryweather replied that “it didn’t use to be (dangerous),” but time and lack of use have eroded a section of the once-popular beach access. “We need some wooden stairs, the same kind of stairs that they have at Torrey Pines to walk up from the beach,” she added.

In other Shores news:

■ Lifeguard report: Sgt. Gleason provided the latest Shores beach attendance numbers, which according to the Lifeguard Service amounted to 200,000 visitors since March. “Spring break is pretty much all spring now,” he joked. During that time, lifeguards performed 35 rescues, 11 cliff rescues, two serious medical aids and 52 moderate medical aids at The Shores beach. ■ Ardath Road street lights: Trustee Brian Earley gave Shores resident Nancy Lo the latest news on her request to add more lampposts along her street, Ardath Road, during his report on the La Jolla Traffic & Transportation committee. Earley claimed there weren’t enough lights along the road

and she felt uneasy walking there at night. “Our chair, Dave Abrams, pointed (Lo) in the direction of a (City) traffic engineer, and they did an evaluation on her street; they moved really quickly,” Earley began, and then he proceeded to read the e-mail response the City sent him: “The location qualifies for four additional street lights that will be installed when funding becomes available.” Following general laughter in the room, Earley outlined ways in which funding could become available for a project like this. “Currently, the City of San Diego has $39 million of unfunded street light projects,” he read, “Funding is limited and targeted toward places that have been categorized as first priority locations. First priority locations consist of intersection of public streets, mid-walk crosswalks, public facilities, tunnels, pedestrian bridges, sharp curbs and cul-de-sacs or dead-end streets.” Ardath Road is a dead-end street, so trustees encouraged Lo to let City staff know her street should be included among the priority locations. ■ 10 years for Fall Fest: The annual Fall Fest, which welcomes The Shores community to a Halloween treat-or-trick journey around Avenida de la Playa, will celebrate its 10th event this year. To commemorate the occasion, La Jolla Shores Business Association chair Angie Preisendorfer proposed requesting a street closure for the first time. “We want to make it much safer and kid-friendly, so children can cross the street between store and store with treats,” she said. A motion to support the request will be discussed at next month’s meeting. — LJSA next meets 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 10 at 8840 Biological Grade. ljsa.org

FROM BUDGET, A1 The infrastructure investment stems from the passage of Proposition H in 2016, which according to the Mayor’s statement, requires the City to dedicate specific revenue sources to fund new streets, sidewalks, bridges and buildings, and requires the maintenance and repair of such infrastructure. “Other important infrastructure investments funded in the proposed budget include park improvements, streetlights, sidewalk repair and replacement, infrastructure to support energy and conservation elements of the Climate Action Plan, and repair of storm water infrastructure and City-owned buildings,” the Mayor writes. This continues Mayor Faulconer’s promise from previous years to repair 1,000 miles of City streets within the five years that started in 2016. According to the Fiscal Year 2017 adopted budget, he reports the City repaired 321 miles of streets in Fiscal Year 2016 and there was funding to repair up to 380 miles of streets included in Fiscal Year 2017. District 1 City Council member Barbara Bry, chair of the Committee on Budget & Government Efficiency (aka Budget Review Committee), said in a statement, “Based on my briefing with the Mayor, I am confident that we will finalize a strong Fiscal Year 2018 budget that prioritizes core community services. As chair of the Budget Review Committee, I want to ensure that the public is actively engaged in the budget review process. It is critical to involve the community in these important decisions during this challenging fiscal year.” She was not able to comment further, and Bry’s communications director Hilary Nemchick said she would not likely comment until she “has had time to read the proposed budget carefully and has read the Independent Budget Analyst’s review of the budget (which should be released on April 28).”

project); La Jolla Parkway/Mount Soledad Erosion Control; citywide coastal erosion and access; and La Jolla Recreation Center Electrical Upgrades. Going into more detail, the City reports construction on the Children’s Pool Walk project will begin in Fiscal Year 2018 and “provides for the design and construction of widened walkways, enhanced paving, slope protection, sea walls, curb and street paving, and various improvements including, but not limited to, bollards, railings and landscape along Coast Boulevard in the vicinity of Children’s Pool from the lifeguard tower to Jenner Street.” The budget report states: “In Fiscal Year 2017, the City Council authorized the appropriation of $180,000 of La Jolla Urban Community funds to complete construction of the improvements.” Regarding the Scripps Park “comfort station” restroom facility, the report states $700,000 in Regional Park Funds were allocated to this project in Fiscal Year 2017. The design will be completed in Fiscal Year 2018, with construction anticipated to be completed in Fiscal Year 2022.

The project would demolish the existing restroom facility at Scripps Park, next to La Jolla Cove, and replace it with a more modern facility designed to better suit the needs of Park/Cove users. There is also funding for the La Jolla View Reservoir Project to replace an above-ground water reservoir in La Jolla Natural Park with construction to begin in Fiscal Year 2019 and be completed in Fiscal Year 2020; and the “warranty phase” of the Avenida de la Playa infrastructure repair project, which was slated to be complete in 2016 but was delayed and required additional funding in 2017. Additionally, construction of the Phase 2 of the Torrey Pines Road Corridor project is expected to begin and end in the 2018 fiscal year. The Corridor Project will create continuity of the sidewalk and buffered bike lanes on both sides of Torrey Pines Road between Prospect Place and La Jolla Shores Drive, install a pedestrian activated crosswalk between Princess and Amalfi streets and replace the existing raised medians with flat, decorative ones.

Derek and Nancy Casady with Rosie the Riveter, one of the iconic symbols adopted by the Climate Mobilization Movement. FROM CLIMATE CHANGE, A3 Diego March for Science (10 a.m. Saturday, April 22 at San Diego Civic Center Plaza, 1200 Third Ave.) and the People’s Climate March (10 a.m. Saturday, April 29 at the Waterfront Park, 1600 Pacific Highway.)

Fossil Fuels Fight

The Casady’s final goal is to see the world end its dependence on fossil fuels, and eventually, use only renewable energies that don’t have the negative effects on

greenhouse emissions that the traditional fuels do. “We know that we cannot just turn off fossil fuel energy, we have to have the alternative in place, so we can have this grand transition,” Nancy acknowledged. Mark Jacobson, professor of civil & environmental engineering at Stanford University, came up with a plan to convert the United States to 100 percent renewable energy by 2050, and the Casadys keep a printout of his research paper, “100 percent clean and renewable wind, water and sunlight all-sector energy roadmaps for the

MARÍA JOSÉ DURÁN

50 United States,” on their living room coffee table. The study outlines how each State can achieve the transition. Accordingly, California could produce 26 percent of its energy by 2050, using solar plants and large-scale photovoltaic systems designed to supply power into the grid. “We have to build 328,000 onshore wind turbines (nationwide),” Derek said, “156,000 offshore wind turbines, 75 million rooftop portable systems on people’s rooftops, and 2.7 million rooftop photovoltaics in

commercial and governmental roofs.” For Nancy, Jacobson’s plan is “a workable plan.” In Derek’s opinion, it’s do-able. As he pointed out, “There will be 4 million people coming out of (work) in the oil and gas industries; we will just switch people to manufacturing photovoltaic cells, like we did in World War II, when women took over the work force.” ■ WANT TO LEARN MORE?

Rep shares future San Diego airport plans with Rotarians BY MARÍA JOSÉ DURÁN Future plans for San Diego International Airport include the demolition of current Terminal 1 and construction of a new 1,500,000-square-foot, 30-aircraft-gate facility that could extend up to 150 feet

above the ground. Airport planning manager Ted Anasis shared details of the upcoming construction with Torrey Pines of La Jolla Rotary Club members during their March 12 meeting at Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery, 8980 La Jolla Village Drive.

The expansion is expected to increase the number of gates at the Airport from 51 to 61. A first phase, to be completed by 2020, will construct the east side of the new Terminal 1 facility, allowing the current Terminal 1 to continue operating while adjacent work is

underway. “It’s very important that we do not close any of these 51 gates during construction,” Anasis told Rotarians. Once the east side of Terminal 1’s expansion is ready to go, air traffic will be moved to the new 18-gate facility, liberating

Citizens are rightfully “concerned that the current

noise issues impacting so many homes and families are only going to get worse with the expected growth in traffic if nothing is done about the problem.

— Chris McCann Airport Noise Advisory Committee subcommittee La Jolla rep

calculates the expansion represents a 20 increase in capacity. “There seems to be some fundamental disconnect between what historical growth trends show, what the Airport Authority is planning with the gate expansions, and what the ANAC reps tell us is the expected growth in traffic in coming years,” McCann wrote in an e-mail. “Citizens are rightfully concerned that the current noise issues impacting so many homes and families are only going to get worse with the expected growth in traffic if nothing is done about the problem.” The Airport Authority issued an Environmental Impact Review Notice of Preparation in January, and the time to provide input on the scope of the review has ended. The Draft EIR will be released in September for public review and comments. More information at bit.ly/airportplan and citizens may direct questions to planning@san.org or call Anasis at (619) 400-2478.

Four coffee carts on the UC San Diego campus, located in four different areas, were set on fire the night of April 16. The San Diego Union-Tribune reports firefighters were dispatched to the La Jolla campus just before 11:45 p.m. where they found a cart near the Social Sciences building on fire, said campus spokesperson Laura Margoni. During the next 40 minutes, three more carts at Warren Mall, Center Hall and Revelle Plaza went up in flames. The blazes were confined to the stands and did not spread, said San Diego Fire-Rescue Department spokesperson Mónica Muñoz. Damage to each was estimated to be $5,000 for the carts and about $2,000 to their contents. Firefighters are working with campus officials to determine the cause of the fires, investigating a report that they may have been set remotely. Anyone with information may call the UCSD police department at (858) 534-4357.

the existing Terminal 1, which was built in 1967, for demolition and further construction of an extra 12 gates. This phase is expected to be completed by 2027. The airport operates out of a single runway, making it the busiest single-runway airport in the nation, and according to Anasis, this is not about to change. “We do not have enough land to construct a second runway, or even a runway that would be at a sufficient separation,” he said, adding that San Diego County voters rejected a ballot measure in 2006 to move the airport to Miramar. Other developments in the plans include an extension of Terminal 2 West, and improvements to airport and airline support facilities, such as roadway modifications and new parking facilities. “We want to create an on-airport roadway system that will allow incoming vehicle traffic to enter the airport earlier, and this allows us to segregate airport ground traffic from other destinations such as Harbor Drive,” he explained. As for the parking structure, which is still in the conceptual design phase, Airport authorities are considering forthcoming conditions, such as the expansion of rideshare apps, preferred by many passengers in their trips to the airport, and the driverless car. “We are also seeing in the future the self-driving vehicles, so there may be who gets dropped off at the airport and sends their cars back home, and we want to be mindful of that,” he continued. The expansion in number of gates will foreseeably bring a higher number of flights and passengers to San Diego.

Injury can’t keep tennis player from Pac Coast Doubles finals BY ASHLEY MACKIN-SOLOMON When La Jolla native (and Stanford University sophomore) Jack Barber was a toddler, he played tennis at the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club with his mother Carolyn. Fast forward nearly 20 years to the recent Pacific Coast Men’s Doubles Tournament, where Barber made it all the way to the finals on the very court on which he learned the game. “It was one of the most fun experiences I’ve had on a tennis court,” he said of competing in the March 2-5 tournament. “I’ve competed all over the world, but growing up playing at the Beach & Tennis Club and returning there, plus having my whole family and friends there to watch me compete, made things lighthearted and memorable.” Carolyn said that though she played junior varsity tennis at Princeton, league tennis and some tournaments, nothing compared to when she would get to play with her son. “Jack and I played in mother-son nationals together, which are my favorite! My strategy was to duck up by the net and let Jack hit all the balls!” At the Pacific Coast Men’s Doubles Tournament, Barber, 20, and his tennis partner, William Genesen, fell just short of the title, but the experience was still rewarding for Barber — especially considering the obstacles he had to overcome to reach this point. In the two years leading up to the tourney, Barber had two wrist surgeries. He was in surgery, rehab and recovery for 22 months.

I’ve competed all over the world, but growing up playing at the Beach & Tennis Club and returning there, plus having my whole family and friends there to watch me compete, made things lighthearted and memorable.

— Jack Barber

Jack Barber in action on the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club courts where he learned to play “Two bones came together in my wrist and I had to get them shaved down,” he explained. “I went to a surgeon who was supposed to be the best. Afterward, I re-habed at Stanford for six months, plus recovery time, but it turned out the doctor messed up, and I had to get another surgery. That second one took a year to heal, which was a long time for me not to be able to compete.” But when he got back on the court, Barber took on a player ranked No. 10 in the country — and won. With the Stanford

team, he made the rounds in national tournaments, including the Pacific Coast Doubles with Genesen. “We never practiced together, let alone competed together, and William is a freshman, so this was one of his first tournaments,” Barber said. “We learned to play with each other at each match. We gelled, and got better and better throughout the tournament.” That spirit of cooperation extends to the whole team. “I love my team,” Barber said. “I can’t imagine any team in the country that

has better camaraderie than we do. My freshman year, there were 13 people on the team, now we have nine players. We’re closer because we’re a smaller team. It’s easy to get along with everyone and it’s a great mix. We’re lighthearted, but serious in competition.” The team has since hit the road for more collegiate tournaments. “Getting back into competition mode is crucial so the (Pacific Coast Doubles Tournament) was a big step forward for me. Now, I just want to get the W with my team,” Barber said.

Village Merchants learn of free SDSU business consulting BY ASHLEY MACKIN-SOLOMON The La Jolla Village Merchants Association (LJVMA) board was briefed on a free consulting program for small businesses during its April 12 meeting at La Jolla Library. Known as Aztec Consulting, the program pairs San Diego State University (SDSU) undergraduate students with small businesses in need of advice. “We provide around 100 hours of

undergraduate and graduate-assisted team time,” said student Talena Handley (Class of 2018). “In that time, we create market research, strategies and recommendations, along with an action plan. The student gets educational experience and the business gets a fresh look and consulting advice for free.” She reported that San Diego has 97,000 small businesses, yet only 50 percent make it past their fifth year. “The No. 1 area in which small businesses report needing help, is

expansion and revenue,” Handley said. To qualify, business owners fill out an application that includes type of business, number of employees, number of years in business, revenue from the last year and a few more facts. “It’s a short process to make sure we would be the agency that could best help you,” Handley told the merchants, “and if we aren’t, we lead you to the correct agency.” More details at aztecconsulting.sdsu.edu

Representatives from the San Diego Tourism Authority speak to La Jolla Village Merchants, April 12, about efforts to promote San Diego nationwide and internationally.

LJVMA executive director Sheila Fortune and president James Niebling discuss upcoming Village events.

In other LJVMA news:

to meet with representatives in the near future to make sure there is consistent branding. LJVMA is in the midst of deciding how to “brand” La Jolla in a way that attracts prospective merchants and guests, and would work with the SDTA as the ideas become refined. ■ La Jolla Day at Petco: A tentative date for La Jolla Day at Petco Park was set for Sunday, July 30. The third annual event reserves a section at the home of the San Diego Padres baseball team for game-goers who purchase tickets through LJVMA members. Ticket information will be sent out when details are confirmed. ■ Alfonso’s space redux: Details are forthcoming in the planned redevelopment

■ Board seat up for grabs: LJVMA president James Niebling said he is looking to fill a vacant seat. LJVMA executive director Sheila Fortune later told La Jolla Light board member qualifications include: one must be the owner/manager of a business or its designated delegate; the business must be active and current on its La Jolla Business Improvement District (BID) fees; and the business must be located in the BID (of The Village). Interested merchants may call (858) 454-5718 or e-mail info@lajollabythesea.com for more details. ■ Tourism Authority: Three representatives from the San Diego Tourism Authority (SDTA) were on hand to describe

recent efforts to promote San Diego, including print and digital ads placed in strategic places, like Times Square in New York City during the months of December and January. At the conclusion of the presentation, a brief discussion took place about how the SDTA specifically “pitches” La Jolla. Public relations manager Robert Arends said as part of marketing and meetings with travel writers, SDTA reps describe La Jolla as a place with “a little bit of everything. Within a five-mile radius or so, there’s fine dining, arts and culture, outdoor recreation, accommodations, beaches, the whole package,” he relayed. To make sure that both the SDTA and LJVMA are “telling the same story” when they promote La Jolla, Niebling said he’d like

St. Jordi’s Day celebration will bring roses, books, dragon tales to Warwick’s BY JAMES JENSEN The scents of paella and dragon’s breath will lure folks to the front doors of Warwick’s Books from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Sunday, April 23, as all are invited to celebrate the second annual St. Jordi’s Day Festival at 7812 Girard Ave. The store will present the splendors of this Catalonian tradition with music, food and fun. St. Jordi (Saint George) is the patron saint of Catalonia, where they’ve celebrated his legend as far back as the 15th century. The Catalonian tradition is for men to give women roses, while the women reciprocate with gifts of books. Although, for over two decades, a more enlightened atmosphere has seen a time where women receive both pages and petals. It is a bibliophile’s version of Valentine’s Day that is less fattening and more erudite. Since April 23 is also the anniversary of the deaths of the Spanish writer Miguel de Cervantes, as well as the English playwright William Shakespeare, it’s not surprising that St. Jordi’s Day is a perfect time to celebrate the printed word. It’s estimated that more than 20 million Euros ($21 million-plus U.S.) are spent on books during St. Jordi’s Day in Catalonia alone. What better way to celebrate books than spending it at an independent bookstore like Warwick’s?

Classic guitar tunes will be played at the St. Jordi’s Day festival.

St. Jordi’s Day is all about love and the love of books.

Just as the legend tells of St. Jordi slaying a dragon to rescue a princess, kids are invited to Warwick’s to cheer on our own knight as he battles a dragon to save a fair princess. Warwick’s encourages children to come dressed as their favorite knights and princesses to aid in the defeat of the fire-breathing menace. At 12:30 p.m., Barcelona native Esther Riera will regale visitors with a reading about the Legend of St. Jordi. Battling dragons, one can work up a hearty appetite. Mouth-watering paella from Paella Valenciana will be served, starting at 11:15 a.m.

to vanquish growling stomachs. Additionally, the soothing notes of classical guitarist and music professor Fred Benedetti will transport guests to the rugged sun-kissed coves and ancient stone walls of Barcelona. The floral artists of Adelaide’s will be on hand to offer roses to the ladies, while the knowledgeable booksellers will offer suggestions on the best titles to celebrate St. Jordi’s Day.

FROM OCEAN BACTERIA, A1 and Kapono is in the process of analyzing the data. He hopes to get results by the summer, and then include the results in his thesis and earn his Ph.D. “We expect to find molecules (in common) as a result of a lifestyle around the beach — whether it’s bacteria from the ocean or chemicals from sunscreen, these are some of the things we expect to find, but there’s no evidence so far.” Rick Wilson, a senior scientist at San Diego Surfrider Foundation, said the study sparked his interest. “We’re (curious) to see what Kapono determines, whether there’s such thing as ‘surfer biome,’ or if their biomes are uniquely different in different locations.” He added that he would be “surprised” if there was a unique set of bacteria that all waveriders shared worldwide. “You would think that there would be differences, because there are different things and levels of pollution in the various oceans — population densities and such.” Wilson said he participated in the three-year Surfer Health Study conducted by Southern California Coastal Water Research Project and published in September, 2016 that followed surfer illness rates, as associated with wet and dry weather. “The general purpose of that study was to see whether surfers got sick at similar rates as swimmers in the ocean,” he explained, “The conclusion was surfers did get sick at similar levels as the general population who went in the ocean.” The Surfer Health Study concentrated on gastrointestinal illnesses, but also “surfers usually talk about sinus infections, ear

Kapono said he grew up surfing in Hawaii, and from this passion the idea for his thesis research was born. “My mentor Pieter Dorrestein provided everyone in our lab (the opportunity) to apply the technology we had available to something we were passionate about, and he knows I’m passionate about surfing. He gave me the opportunity to ask, ‘How can we apply this

(technology) to surfers?’ So we sat down and talked for a few hours about how we could apply the resources and research, and then we came up with the Surfer Biome project.” Kapono said all the samples he collected in San Diego (including one he donated) came from La Jollans — more specifically, surfers from Scripps Institution of Oceanography.

American Gut project

The Surfer Biome project is intended to

contribute to a larger effort by Knight’s lab to understand the microbial diversity of the human gut. Any citizen can send a sample of his or her saliva, palm skin or stool to UCSD to be analyzed, providing they make a donation ($99 or more) to the study’s fundraising campaign. The American Gut project — which has been running for four years and has raised $1,383,751 from 9,019 contributors — allows citizens to mail in their samples and receive results on their personal participant site. Kapono said it would be a good idea for surfers who want to know how their microbes change after surfing during a storm to participate in the program. “If they surf after a weather event, they can send their sample in,” he invited. For Wilson, the Surfer’s Biome research opens more queries for the future. “The more interesting question is, assuming surfers have a unique biome, what does that mean? Is that a good thing or a bad thing? Are surfers more resistant to disease? Or is it bad in that they’ve been exposed to certain microbes, causing changes that are not so good?” In Kapono’s view, his research has potential to change political direction in the defense of the environment. “The benefits of doing a project like this is we can influence a policy shift to protect the environment and in doing so, protect ourselves,” he concluded. ■ WANT TO KNOW MORE? • Check out Surfer Biome and Cliff Kapono at cliffkapono.com • To participate in the American Gut project, visit americangut.org

Despite being approved by the City of San Diego in 2006, we have conducted an extensive environmental review and fundamental redesign of our plans based on neighbor feedback.

The building is proposed for a triangular parcel of land at La Jolla Village Drive and Torrey Pines Road. As Hillel executive director Michel Rabkin explained, “It will be an off-campus center for small group meetings, pastoral counseling, holiday celebrations, prayer services and a place for cultural exploration. It will be a drop-in center where professional staff will work with students on a day-to-day basis.” More at sandiego.gov and ucsdhillel.org/glickman-hillel-center

Police should move panhandlers out of town At what point do La Jollans say enough is enough? How many panhandlers do we need to tolerate before we take action to maintain our quality of life? More and more individuals are showing up on our corners (see Torrey Pines Road and La Jolla Parkway, and now Girard Avenue and Torrey Pines Road). They ask for money and, when you don’t give it to them, they make rude remarks or get aggressive. The San Diego Police Department (SDPD) — and a form of this letter has been sent to Community Relations Police Officer Larry Hesselgesser — can engage in quality-of-life policing. This means proactively policing an area and responding to situations before they escalate. It’s just that our police department chooses not to do this kind of work. La Jolla already gets short shrift when it comes to police resources, and now we’re seeing some of the results of that neglect by the police — more homeless individuals harassing people, more homeless people camping out in and around La Jolla Shores, more homeless people popping up on street medians, etc. It’s the old slippery slope argument: Not proactively policing an area leads to more and more incidents, which ultimately degrades an area’s quality of life. It’s a vicious cycle, and it’s happening right now in La Jolla. SDPD is the only entity capable of adequately responding to this problem. I believe that many of these individuals are grifters and not receptive to measures short of legal action. I hope SDPD can change its protocol and start assisting the community with quality-of-life measures. Bill Smith P.S. Standing in the median is not a place meant for pedestrians. It’s probably not legal

Partial overview of the 2017 La Jolla Concours D’Elegance, April 9 at Scripps Park

PHOTOS BY VINCENT ANDRUNAS

BY ASHLEY MACKIN-SOLOMON Although the number totals are still rolling in, organizers say increases in social media exposure, the quality of cars on display and the show’s international reputation were factors in drawing thousands to the La Jolla Concours d’Elegance, April 7-9 with LPL Financial as the title sponsor. The 13th annual event featured a Rolls-Royce Contemporary Classic cocktail party at The LOT Friday night; a Tour of Cars with 85 vehicles Saturday morning between the Symbolic Motors showroom and La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club; a Bentley Motors VIP Reception Saturday night; the all-day ticketed car show at Scripps Park and concurrent Motorcar Classic where 90 cars lined Coast Boulevard for free public viewing on Sunday. Organizer Michael Dorvillier said of the event, “(There were) amazing venues, weather, vehicles, sponsors and spectators. We had several vehicles that are one of one — yes only one left. These are mostly pieces of art.” SEE CONCOURS, A24

OUR READERS WRITE (CONTINUED) and, besides, it’s dangerous. I saw a police officer waiting at the traffic signal while a homeless person was “working the corner.” The officer did nothing. It truly was an unbelievable moment. As soon as it’s established in the homeless community that begging/panhandling/soliciting in La Jolla is acceptable, the more of this kind of activity we will see, and that’s why I’m asking for assistance from SDPD.

Could Bonair St. drainage be a health hazard? Since before winter, work was being done on the building on the corner of La Jolla Boulevard and Bonair Street (northwest corner). Plumbing was being installed to drain the underground parking garage. A sump pump must have been installed. Since that happened, polluted drainage has been pumped onto the street and down to the beach intermittently. This water has the smell of diesel fuel, and has stained the street and gutter all the way down to the beach. Many years ago that property had a gas station and dry cleaners located there. Could somebody please investigate this? It is possible that this water has some very bad chemicals in it. Dana Nelson

FROM CONCOURS, A23 In total, 124 cars filled Scripps Park for the competitions, and Dorvillier said the plethora of high-end cars made it difficult for the judges (six of whom came from Europe “on their own dime”) to choose a winner. “We had cars from all over the world, and there were five or six cars that could have won ‘Best in Show.’ That was the caliber of competition on the field.” Ultimately, a 1921 Duesenberg with a Dual Cowl Phaeton body, owned by Ron and Sandy Hansen, took the coveted “Best.” But gathering a collection of classic cars for a world-class Concours didn’t happen overnight. Dorvillier said there was a time in the event’s history when organizers were “begging for car clubs to participate,” but now “those days are behind us.” He explained, “Our efforts over the past five years are finally paying off. Our goal was to be one of the top (car) events in the country. The car collector world put us there last year. We’ve been recognized as one of the best Concours in the country. Hard work and a commitment to bring a spectacular event to La Jolla in an effort to continue to put a much-needed shine on our Village has finally paid off. The La Jolla Concours d’Elegance is now internationally respected as one of the top in the nation.” In addition to the spectators and participants, community groups also benefit from the show’s success. For the second year, ticket buyers had the option of using a promo code when purchasing online. With these codes, they could received $5 off the ticket price and organizations like La Jolla Town Council, La Jolla Parks & Beaches, La Jolla Village Merchants Association and San Diego Automotive Museum received a $10

Wayne and Kimberly Weeks, Bill Dorvillier, Tracy Hoogenberg, La Jolla Concours d’Elegance chair Mike Dorvillier donation. The event’s main beneficiary is La Jolla Historical Society (LJHS), which receives 100 percent of the proceeds. LJHS executive director Health Fox said the event “really supports us well,” so the Historical Society can continue to provide free exhibits and programs. “It will take a while before the full perspective on the financials are known, but I expect we will net in our target range of $50,000 to $60,000,” Fox said. “Proceeds from events like the Concours d’Elegance and the upcoming Secret Garden Tour (see related story on page B8) enable us year-round to present free exhibitions and educational programs, and allow the public to pull information from our archives.” Adding that he is “grateful to the planning committee, car entrants and all those who attended Concours,” Fox said this year was his fifth year at the event and it was “wonderful.”

Wilhelmina Gloria Gorosin-Spencer March 30, 1937 - April 6, 2017

LA JoLLA — Wilhelmina G. Gorosin-Spencer, born March 30, 1937, passed away peacefully in San Francisco on Thursday, April 6, 2017, after celebrating her birthday with all her family. “Mina” was born in Manila, Philippines, on Sabado de Gloria. Her parents were Professor Esperidion Gorosin of Cebu and Couturier Estrella RaderGorosin of Illocos Norte, Philippines. In her early life she attended the Assumption Convent in Manila and later St. Annes Academy in New Westminster, British Columbia, Canada, where she became an accomplished pianist. She and her family immigrated to the United States, settling in Los Angeles. While there she attended Loyola-Marymount

College. She and her brother and sister founded “Willies Dance Academy” in LA. All three were accomplished dancers, and Mina also formed her own dance ensemble, traveling the world performing. Upon retiring from dance, she turned her attention to a second career in business. Mina owned several boutiques in San Jose, Phoenix and Scottsdale. In 1979

in Phoenix she met her husband, Scott, and both moved to San Diego and were married in 1980. In La Jolla, CA, she owned and operated “Star Fashion Boutique”, and assisted in her husband’s successful architectural firm from 1990 until today. Star Fashion was a premier boutique for couture and wedding dresses in La Jolla for over two decades. She learned the fashion business from her mother, Estrella, and brother, Ricco, and this was her passion for 28 years. What meant the absolute most to her was family. She was a second mom to her nieces and nephews for over 50 years, and for the last 30 years there was not a day that one of her nieces or nephews was not a part of her home. Her life was her family. She helped raise a second

generation of great nieces and nephews. Mina is preceded in death by her loving parents and brothers, Andrew, Edward, oliver and Ricco. She is survived by her husband of 37 years, Scott; sisters, Amalita and Marie-Yvonne (Tita); nieces and nephews, Sean, Velvet, Bradley and Chase Stacy; nieces, Elena Rader, Monica, Claudia and Florinda Peralta, Royal Roshto and Star RaderGorosin; great-nephew, Trac Young; and greatnieces, Asher Stacy, Ireland and Sterling Padula. Wilhelmina’s final calling is in service to the Lord Jesus Christ. A Rosary and Funeral Mass was held Wednesday, April 12, 2017, at our Lady of Confidence Catholic Church, San Diego, CA.

The domoic acid toxin is naturally occurring in algal blooms, Caron said. Sea lions and other large marine mammals become poisoned when they consume anchovies, sardines or other small filtering fish who’ve been feeding on toxic algae. “It’s not known why the toxin is produced by the algae, although it seems to be increasing in prevalence in the last couple of decades, at least in our region,” he explained. SeaWorld communications director David Koontz confirmed that no sea lions “with suspected domoic acid toxicity” have been rescued from La Jolla Cove. The domoic acid is a powerful neurotoxin that upon ingestion causes memory loss, disorientation, nausea and convulsions. In extreme cases, it may cause death. Caron explained that the most common way of being poisoned by the toxin is by ingesting shellfish. “What needs to happen is something needs to concentrate the plankton, like anchovies and sardines, mussels or clams or something that filters a lot of water,” he said, ruling out the fear that surfers or other groups who recreate in the ocean are in danger of becoming poisoned from skin contact with the acid. Caron added the “hotspots” where the neurotoxin was found in the latest testing were the Los Angeles Harbor and Marina del Rey areas. The California Department of Public Health monitors the toxin, closing shellfish beds where it’s found. Caron recommended only consuming shellfish and filter feeders from trusted sources.

La Jolla dancer wins a ‘Title Belt’ BY MARÍA JOSÉ DURÁN fter a career as a professional ballet dancer, La Jolla resident and vice-president of the City Ballet of San Diego board of directors, Janelle Freiman ventured into the world of the fighting arts. She said she was immediately captivated, so much so that she went on to win both bouts (matches) in the March 23-24 Ringside Masters Championship in Kansas City, Missouri; claiming the Title Belt in her first competitive event. “Ballet is footwork and choreography, and fighting is also footwork and choreography. In some ways they’re very different, but in some ways they each complement the other very much,” Freiman told La Jolla Light. She said she was really proud of her first victory, adding that “it was a pretty stiff competition. My opponents were really good fighters who had been fighting for a while, so I came in and did what I learned how to do with my boxing coach, Basheer Abdhullah, and got myself in the zone.” Next, she will fight at the International Fight Showdown, May 20 in Anaheim, and then at the Ringside World Championships, July 24-29, in Independence, Missouri. At age 56, Freiman competes in the “Golden Globe” women’s division, comprised of ages 35-99. She said her younger daughter, who is in medical school, didn’t want her mother practicing fighting arts at first, fearing she could get hurt. “And then she came to one of my practices and she said, ‘Oh you’re really good!’ My older daughter just loved it, in her words she said, ‘My mom is badass!’ ” Freiman said she first started fighting when she signed up for a Krav Maga class at the Jewish Community Center (JCC). Krav Maga is military self-protection system developed for the Israel Defense Forces. “Freiman’s dedicated,” said her

coach Dana Kaplan, “she trains in several styles of sports fighting and she’s a competitor; she’s fierce.” After her first contact with Krav Maga in March 2015, Freiman started traveling the world to train with the best coaches in several disciplines. “I wanted to learn how to really have some real skills,” she said, adding she trains in boxing with Abdhullah in San Diego, Muay Tai with Melchor Menor in Spain, and regularly practices at the Arena Mixed Martial Arts gym in San Diego. As her husband, Robert Orsi, explained it, “Janelle doesn’t do anything halfway, so immediately she was full-on there, taking lessons in boxing and Muay Tai.” He added she was “very prepared” for her first fight, but he was “really surprised (at her win), because the four women in her SEE BOXING, B3

division were the most capable in any division of men or women, they had no flakes. She had to dig deep, emotionally, to win.” Freiman said she’s lived in La Jolla for 14 years, and used to run a Pilates studio in The Village for 10 years. “I first came to La Jolla when I was in high school, and I always wanted to move here, so finally in 2002, I made the arrangements,” she said. “It’s the place I love most in the world. I love the community and the beauty of La Jolla. It’s just home.”

The referee declares Freiman victor of the bout at Ringside Masters Championship.

Women and self-defense

Freiman’s first contact with the fighting arts happened because she wanted to improve her self-defense capabilities. “As a woman,” she explained, “it’s very important to be equipped to defend yourself. If you are attacked by a man, you’re going to have to know (and use) other techniques because they’re always going to have more power.” The JCC in La Jolla organizes a yearly Krav Maga Women’s Seminar, where teachers show women how to best use their intuitions to avoid danger. “(We teach them) how not to look like a victim, how to be aware of their surroundings, prevent a strike,

and how to escape from the most likely attacks,” Kaplan said. ■ WANT TO KNOW MORE? The next Krav Maga Women’s Seminar will take place Sunday, April 23 at Jewish Community Center, 4126 Executive Drive, La Jolla, and although registration is about to close, Kaplan said those interested can enter their e-mail addresses at kravmagasd.com to be contacted when a date is set for the next event. Besides the seminar, the JCC offers a Krav Maga 8-week program (five days a week), where students train to be able to defend themselves in a street fight. (858) 848-5728.

a Jolla Historical Society (LJHS) historian Carol Olten just turned 75, but having a conversation with her is like spending time with a 7-year-old — a very talkative one! She doesn’t make eye contact when she speaks, and her energy and speed could tire the average adult in 15 minutes. Her colorful persona is well-ornamented by her unique, vibrant fashion sense and her eternally bright, short and white hair.

Where are you from?

“I was born in a small town outside Saint Louis called Washington, Missouri. I grew up there and it was a farm community. I grew up with cows, horses, pigs and chickens and all that kind of stuff to play with.”

When did you first come to La Jolla?

“I came to San Diego in 1964 to go to work for Copley Press (at The San Diego Union newspaper) and on Easter Sunday of 1965, I got into my then-new VW and I drove for the first time to La Jolla, around WindanSea Beach, and said, ‘Why am I living in Hillcrest?’ And I drove around that very day until I found an apartment at the corner of Rosemont and La Jolla Boulevard, where I rented a furnished room for $75 a month.”

When did you become interested in the

history of La Jolla?

“It was an evolutionary process. When I worked for the newspaper, I wrote a lot about San Diego history. I’ve always had an interest in it, and I met this wonderful guy who worked for what was then-called San Diego Historical Society, that’s now the History Center. He had a great deal of interest in the San Diego history, and dragged me into it. Then, when I retired from the newspaper profession, I got involved with the first Secret Garden Tour that the LJHS was doing, and I wrote the program. LJHS had an opening in the office for someone to do general stuff, answering the phone and whatever, and I was hired by Pat Dahlberg, who was the director then. When she retired, John Bolthouse (came on) and asked me to describe what I did, and he said, ‘You look to me like you would be a great historian.’ ”

Who shares your home?

“I live with a dog, his name is Jingles and he’s a Samoyed. He’s my second Samoyed, I had another named Bow, who died in my arms when he was 14 years old. They’re extremely sweet dogs.”

What do you do in your free time?

“I’m a voracious reader, and I read a lot of historical fiction and biographies. I have a great love of movies, and I’m really grateful that we have The LOT here in La Jolla, and we have a movie house again, because a lot of my time is spent going to the movies.”

Do you have many friends?

“A few … I’m not a social person, I’m kind of reclusive, most of my social events are concerned with LJHS;

Carol Olten

MARÍA JOSÉ DURÁN

receptions and that sort of thing, I have a few friends in the neighborhood around Park Row, and that’s about it.”

What do you see in your future?

“I suppose I’ll continue to live in La Jolla, I don’t know where else I would live at this point. I’ve often entertained that I would go live on the French Riviera for a while, but at this stage of my life, I’m probably going to stay put.”

How do you select your attire?

“The San Diego Reader did an article about me when I was a movie critic at the newspaper, and they talked about me picking up my coffee every morning at the Pannikin, and they referred to me as always wearing an ‘Outfit du Jour’ (laughs), and I continue to wear Outfits du Jour. I’m a clothes’ artist. I love clothes, fashion, design, decorating and all those kinds of things.

People always ask me where I shop … well, I shop in La Jolla. I have my favorite spots, Y-3, Pomegranate, Gambucci and a number of others. I wish there were more stores that were fashion-related in La Jolla and we wouldn’t have so many beauty stores and people standing around offering you samples.”

What’s your favorite thing about La Jolla?

“I love the shoreline. I love the beaches. I love architecture and design, and I admire the diversity of architectural styles that we have, both in residential and commercial buildings.”

What do you dislike about La Jolla?

“There are too many crowds, traffic that’s not handled correctly, houses that are maxed-out on lots with no landscape, and people who don’t pick up their dog poop. I dislike people who leave trash. I really dislike people in the summertime who leave their ice cream cups on the street! I cannot stand it!”

What’s you most unpopular opinion about La Jolla?

“There’s this thing about parking in La Jolla that people always complain about, (she makes a funny voice) ‘We don’t shop in La Jolla anymore because there’s nowhere to park.’ Well that is absurd because there are plenty places to park in one of the structures. It’s just that people don’t want to pay to park in La Jolla, that’s the problem.”

What’s something that people don’t know about you?

“I’m a reclusive person in some ways, but I’m also kind of ‘out there,’ in terms of how I dress, think about things and express myself when I write. People don’t know that I have a lavender living room in my pink house.”

What’s your favorite color?

“I like lavender a lot, but I’m not like Virginia Scripps, she loved purple. I’m not a purple person, I’m a lavender person. I owned a house at the corner Eads Avenue and Genter

La Jolla Historical Society historian Carol Olten in her home fashioned with ornate and colorful décor Street for 10 years, starting in 1986, and I painted it this very white shade of lavender, which stood out in the community. I had a great deal of fun with that house, because it was the first house I owned on my own, without being married. I had a fantasy for ‘Alice in Wonderland’ going for a while, and I was working with a very creative painter, and he was able to paint ‘Alice in Wonderland’ on the chimney. It was a full-on painting with all the other characters in the story. Then I built a fence around the house and we painted sunflowers with Van Gogh faces inside each flower.”

MARÍA JOSÉ DURÁN

It seems you’ve lived your life the way you wanted.

“I did! There’s no need to compromise one’s life. A lot of people compromise it with other people, and I think it comes from me being an only child; I was always able to find things to do on my own and that probably progressed into my adult life. I couldn’t imagine having to ask somebody, what do you want for dinner? What if I wanted a hot dog and the other person wanted a burger? We would be in this endless conflict about what we are going to eat tonight.”

The Old Globe Theatre

‘Skeleton Crew’ looks at life on the line for Detroit auto workers BY DIANA SAENGER The Old Globe is the first regional theater in the country to produce Dominique Morisseau’s “Skeleton Crew.” It was originally presented as a reading at The Globe’s 2014 Powers New Voices Festival before gaining acclaim in an Off-Broadway run. The story takes place in Detroit, in 2008, as the car industry heads downhill. There’s only one working auto plant left, and long hours on the job have led to employees to bond like a family. Only months away from retiring with a full pension, Faye (Tonye Patano) discovers management has a new plan. With compassion for her colleagues, she’s torn between self-preservation and allegiance to her coworkers. Globe artistic director Barry Edelstein said the story couldn’t be more timely. “Dominique Morisseau’s play is a remarkable achievement,” he opined. “Rich with complex moral questions and full of joy and vibrancy, it celebrates working Americans even as it brings enormous compassion to the struggles they face in a changed economy.” Added Patano, “It’s interesting how every few years things recycle back to the way they were in 2008 and 2009 ... things come back like a boomerang. This story holds up amazingly and shows how important it is even to a community like San Diego, which is much different than Detroit. “On the surface, the play is kind of straightforward, but it’s really not. It’s a deceptively nuanced piece. Dominique is a

JIM COX

Amari Cheatom and Tonye Patano in Dominique Morisseau's ‘Skeleton Crew,’ directed by Delicia Turner Sonnenberg, in association with MOXIE Theatre, on stage through May 7 at The Old Globe Theatre creative woman and her language is so beautifully poetic and dense. For the dialect of Detroit, where the play takes place, she uses poetry and phrases put on the page with special care. “Detroit’s history is unique from when the auto business started. There were the unions, and the mixing of blacks and whites working together. Factories created their own class of people who could earn a decent wage and

put some of their family members through college, and buy homes. To watch that unravel in various stages from breaking unions to the auto crisis where people were affected so quickly, you see families broken up and entire neighborhoods gone. The story Dominique tells us is poignant and wonderful.” Patano said the cast is great. It features Amari Cheatom as Dez, Brian Marable as Reggie, and Rachel Nicks as Shanita.

BY MARÍA JOSÉ DURÁN Within the 2017 La Jolla Historical Society (LJHS) Secret Garden Tour’s featured spaces, one homeowner removed a swimming pool to install their garden, another a tennis court, and a third bought the adjacent house and demolished it for the same purposes. “This is a group of people committed to gardening, and there are some really special gardens on this year’s tour,” said LJHS director Heath Fox. The Secret Garden Tour returns to La Jolla 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, May 20, with the novelty that this year LJHS will kick off the weekend with a Friday Night Garden Candlelight Soirée (tickets $75) from 6 to 8:30 p.m. May 19. During the event, guests will gather at a garden featured in the 2016 Secret Garden Tour and enjoy hors d’oeuvres, wine and music by candlelight. The celebrity guest will be Nan Sterman, garden designer, botanist and host of KPBS’s “A Growing Passion” show. The 19th edition of the event offers various options. The “Platinum Tour” ($150) starts with brunch at a secluded setting, and then guests go off to visit the six “secret gardens” in small buses. The “Self-Guided Tour” ($50) begins at LJHS’s Wisteria Cottage, 780 Prospect St., where tour-goers will pick up their program booklets with locations of the gardens, a map and the wristband necessary to gain entrance. Visitors who choose this option drive themselves to the different locations and can visit the gardens in any order. Garden

Anxiety is the body’s normal reaction to stress, and it serves a very important purpose: it is designed to signal dangerous, uncomfortable, or unfamiliar situations so that we remain aware and alert. However, for the 40 million adults affected by anxiety disorders (which include ObsessiveCompulsive Disorder, Panic Disorder, PostTraumatic Stress Disorder, and Social Anxiety Disorder), the warning signal often sounds loudly and consistently, with no ‘off switch’ in sight. Below, Dr. Krista Roybal, Executive Medical Director at La Jolla’s True Life Center for Wellbeing, answers a few common questions about this prevalent mental health issue. Q.) I worry a lot…about my job, my kids, my weight, and all of my responsibilities… do I have anxiety? A.) We all experience stress and anxiety in life. Every day is full of natural highs and lows as we interact with the world, and as our expectations and goals line up with external realities. Part of being human is worrying (to a certain degree) about matters outside of our control. In situations like moving to a new city, taking a test, giving a presentation, or having an ill family member, anxiety is normal and can even prove beneficial. Through the heightened state of awareness that comes with anxiety, we grow more alert and more sensitive. Generally, the difference between routine vs. concerning levels of anxiety is the amount of time you experience it, the intensity of it, and the effect it has on your normal functioning. If anxiety is preventing you from living a full and satisfying life, I would encourage you to seek help. Q.) A friend suggested that my unexplained stomach problems and migraines might be anxiety-related, but I don’t feel particularly anxious. Is it possible for anxiety to be physical? A.) This is very common! Anxiety is deeply tied to our physiology. I often see

patients suffering from the physical symptoms of anxiety – insomnia, upset stomach or nausea, shortness of breath, headaches, fatigue, muscle tension, and more – long before they recognize anxiety as the underlying cause. Individuals may even visit their primary care doctors for help in addressing the symptoms, while the root cause remains unaddressed. If anxiety is starting to manifest on a physical level, short-term solutions that only address the symptoms will not provide lasting relief because the anxiety itself has not been addressed. At True Life Center, we treat the root cause of anxiety while simultaneously addressing the body. Treatment plans include holistic services like acupuncture, yoga, and meditation. Mental health affects more than just the mind, and true healing requires attending to someone’s whole health – mind, body, and spirit. Q.) What should I do if I suspect that I have an anxiety problem, but I’m too anxious to talk to a professional about it? A.) You are not alone. Unfortunately, only one-third of those suffering from anxiety actually receive treatment. Others delay treatment for years while numbing themselves with alcohol or prescription medication, spending excessive time on social media, or distracting themselves with work or food. Many people fear that consciously facing the source of their anxiety will make things worse. But sharing and processing your feelings, using medication thoughtfully and only when necessary, and learning the tools and resources for self-care can provide immense relief. I encourage you to ask a trusted friend or loved one to support you in getting the help you deserve. This can mean assisting with research, helping you make phone calls, or holding you accountable for attending that first appointment.

If you have questions about anxiety or want to learn more about treatment of anxiety or other mental health issues, please call True Life Center at 858-384-4535. We would be happy to provide information, resources, and support.

San Diego Asian Film Festival presents its Spring Showcase See 20 movies with a cultural perspective BY WILL BOWEN The seventh annual San Diego Asian Film Festival (SDAFF) Spring Showcase, presented by Pacific Arts Movement (Pac Arts), will feature 20 films from 10 countries screening April 20-27 at the UltraStar Cinemas Mission Valley in Hazard Center. This is the largest showcase to date with films ranging from socially-minded documentaries to uplifting romantic comedies — all of which celebrate those who explore and exhibit the concept of “freedom” through the art of film.

“This year’s timely and relevant films seek to bring audiences together with stories that remind us to consider both our own history, as well as that of the world around us,” said Kent Lee, SDAFF executive director. “The Spring Showcase is a special opportunity for us to present an intimate selection of documentary, blockbuster and award-winning films from Asian and Asian-American perspectives to the San Diego community.” The Spring Showcase opens 7 p.m. Thursday, April 20 with “Poi E: The Story of Our Song,” a joyous musical documentary about a community in New Zealand that comes together to preserve its culture and language under the direction

Let’s Talk About Home Care. Let’s talk about how high quality, personalized in-home care can help you or a loved one.

Home care can keep older adults in their homes. 9 out of 10 of seniors prefer to age in their own homes. Hiring a caregiver provides the extra support an older adult may need to stay where they most prefer: at home. Home care helps seniors stay independent longer. A caregiver provides support with activities of daily living, while encouraging mental and physical stimulation and overall wellness. They also promote safety in the home by preventing falls or other accidents. Home care is personalized to each family. Our care plans at Home Care Assistance are tailored specifically to each client’s unique needs and preferences. Caregivers are expertly matched and managed by our client care team. Caregivers are available for a few hours every day or around-the-clock.

FROM FILM FESTIVAL, B17 “Sunday Beauty Queen” is the keystone festival film. Its North American premiere is 3:20 p.m. Saturday, April 22. This is a story about Sundays for the Filipinos working in Hong Kong, who come together in the streets on that day to celebrate, commune and throw beauty contests. The director, Baby Ruth Villarama, will be present for the screening. The film is said to have captured the play between the harsh realities of overseas labor and the nostalgia for the families Philippine workers leave behind in their native land. Perhaps the most poignant films are the documentaries and shorts of “Right to Resist: From 9066 to 2017,” which chronicle the Japanese-American internment during World War II. This film collection, the first of its kind, will be shown over most of Sunday, April 23 to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Executive Order 9066 that directed the U.S. military to take the historical action. Other films in the collection examine the more contemporary Muslim-American experience, post 9/11. Patrons age 17 and younger can attend this series for free. On closing night, 7 p.m., Thursday, April 27, “Gook,” a comedy-drama, directed by Justin Chon, will examine the LA riots of 1992 from the viewpoint of Korean-American store owners, many of whom were victimized by the events. ■ IF YOU GO: All screenings tale place at UltraStar Cinemas Mission Valley, 7510 Hazard Center Drive, Suite 100, San Diego. Tickets for individual movies are $12-$15; students, seniors and military $9.50. The All-Inclusive Pass is $100 ($60 if you join Pac Arts). Find the complete festival schedule and tickets at sdaff.org

Father Joe’s Villages gala on May 13 For the 2017 Children’s Charity Gala: Pioneering the Future presented by Witt Lincoln, Saturday, May 13, at the US Grant Hotel, Father Joe’s Villages will celebrate its history of innovation and explore how it will continue to uphold that tradition. Proceeds from the fundraiser will be used for Father Joe’s Villages’ therapeutic childcare programs for ages 0 to 12. The evening will begin at 5 p.m. with a VIP reception, followed by a 6 p.m. social hour and silent auction, with hosted bar and entertainment. Emcee Bill Griffith will preside over a dinner and program, including a live auction and dancing to the music from Atomic Groove. Father Joe’s Villages will also make three award presentations to recognize contributions to Father Joe’s mission to end homelessness, one life at a time. “Children who are homeless are four times as likely to have developmental delays and twice as apt to repeat a grade in school. Over half will not finish high school,” said Deacon Jim Vargas, president and CEO of Father Joe’s Villages. “By offering programs like those through our therapeutic childcare, we provide young people the tools they need to help prevent homelessness in their adult lives.” An estimated 1.6 million kids in America are homeless, and 380,000 of those are under age 18 — 2,000 of them in San Diego. Tickets (from $350) and sponsorships are available at fjvgala.com or by calling 1 (800) HOMELESS.

Say ‘Grilled Cheese’ !

M

y cousins and I always had a friendly rivalry centered around the culinary skills of our mothers. My mom, hands down, made the best holiday dinners, while her oldest sister was famous for her date cookies, and the middle one admired for her melt-in-your-mouth apple pies. The last aunt (by marriage) was about as useful in the kitchen as a pair of open-toed stilettos climbing Mount Whitney in a blizzard. Still, her son defended her cooking prowess, bragging endlessly about her heavenly grilled cheese sandwiches. Of course, that was all she knew how to make (along with a bowl of Campbell’s cream of tomato soup to accompany the sandwich), but it was still undeniably delicious. The nostalgic grilled cheese sandwich is making a gustatory comeback as elegant eateries, casual diners and trendy food trucks creatively serve sophisticated (and complicated) versions of the iconic comfort food once only a basic item on the child’s menu. Now this sandwich has been honored with a day and whole month on the food calendar. Food folklorists believe that the American concept for the grilled cheese sandwich

originated from French cafes and bars in the early 1900s, where patrons enjoyed a quick and dirty fried ham and Swiss Emmantal cheese sandwich called Croque Monsieur (a gentleman’s crunch). A more elaborate rendition known as Croque Madame was also topped with a fried egg. As food technology advanced during the Roaring Twenties with the advent of both the bread slicer and processed cheese, the grilled cheese sandwich was a natural. Open-faced versions were popular fare on Naval ships during World War II, but it wasn’t until 1965 when Kraft Singles hit the market that the modern day grilled cheese sandwich was born. Today there are practically more grilled cheese amalgams than lottery ticket combinations from the original to the outrageous. A restaurant in the Big Apple boasts the world’s priciest grilled cheese sandwich exceeding $200. As well, orders must be made two days in advance so the grilled cheese gurus can meticulously assemble the edible extravaganza, which includes baking Dom Perignon into the bread, edging the crust with 24-carat gold leaf, and slathering the slices in gold-flecked truffle oil. Layers of rare southern Italian

Caciocavallo podolico cheese from the delicately scented milk of an ancient Asian breed of cow (then specially aged in pairs hanging from a wooden cavallo beam) is generously layered on the bread. Choice lobster meat is also added to the concoction. I’ve created my own sandwich board to suit the tastes and dietary preferences of a variety of grilled cheese lovers: • For a fancy, celebratory version, sprinkle Champagne on a hearty bread like pumpernickel before grilling. Layer roe or caviar of choice with English Brie or mascarpone. • The Caprice style uses crusty Italian bread, buffalo mozzarella, heirloom tomatoes and fresh shredded basil. • The Green-eyed Muenster is grilled with avocado, baby arugula and Persian cucumber. • The Fairy Tale features chunks of lobster meat paired with havarti on a sour dough or brioche roll. • The BLT with a healthy twist combines turkey or vegan bacon called “facon,” lacy Swiss, vine-ripened tomatoes and baby lettuces on rye. • Get your Goat Grilled Cheese with country white bread, smoked salmon, red onions and capers. • The Pizza Grilled Cheese has mozzarella, Parmesan or Grana Padano, and a chunky marinara sauce on a crusty Italian baguette. • The Vegan (or Lactose Intolerant) is made with soy or almond-based cheese, Portobello mushrooms, caramelized onions and baby spinach on honey whole-wheat. • The Deli sandwiches corned beef and melted Swiss between crispy potato

Classic Grilled Cheese ■ Ingredients: 2 slices thick-cut sour dough, country white or traditional sandwich loaf bread; 2 slices Cheddar (sharp or mild), Monterey Jack or Swiss; 2 tablespoons salted butter, softened at room temperature. ■ Method: Place cheese on one bread slice, and cover with second slice. Spread butter on both outer sides of the bread. Melt a dollop of butter in a skillet on medium heat. Place the sandwich in center and fry until the underside is golden, about 3 minutes. Flip, and cook until cheese is melted, 3-5 minutes. Cut in half diagonally and serve with tomato soup. — kitchenshrink@san.rr.com

pancakes. • The Grilled Mediterranean piles roasted eggplant, red peppers, black olives and goat feta on an herb-crusted pita. • For breakfast and dessert, grill challah or sweet rolls, mascarpone or ricotta cheeses, and fresh berries, preserves or Nutella.

Accessory Dwelling Units: Beyond the Granny Flat With the newly increased freedom of building an accessory dwelling unit—an ADU—on your property because of recent California legislation comes a multitude of options for how to use your ADU structure. Commonly known as the granny flat, an ADU is a worthwhile investment to your luxury home even if you don’t plan to use it as an income property or to stash visiting or extended-stay relatives (but the space is still nice to have for them in a pinch). Because of the new residential codes, ADUs still need to have electricity and plumbing, so make sure your design plan comes with a bathroom. The

great part of ADUs is their versatility—you can use them for just about anything. Home office Working from home is always more effective when you have a dedicated space. This is even more true of the detached backyard office: You can actually leave your home life behind and move to another building, even if it is a twenty-foot walk. Just that little separation has been shown to increase productivity of professionals who work from home, maximizing efficiency so that you actually have time to enjoy your luxury home. Another upside to consider is that with a home office, there are ways to get special tax deductions for your home office space. There are two methods of deductions, the regular option and the simplified option, in which you multiply your home office’s square footage by $5, up to 300 square feet. Your home office must be your regular office, used exclusively for business, or it must be the place where you meet with clients.

Home studio For the creatives, maybe you want the look of an artist’s loft to write your memoirs, or maybe you are working on a collection of paintings to show at a gallery. One caveat is that if you’re setting up your own home recording studio, this will require a special audio/visual setup by a professional, as well as soundproofing, and acoustic paneling—it is a separate beast from a more versatile dwelling unit. But if you are a professional artist and your home studio is your primary place of work, then the home office tax deduction mentioned above may apply to you. Yoga studio or meditation room Nothing says “luxury home” like your own dedicated space for exercise, yoga, or mediation. Make sure that your design has enough room to fully extend with room leftover for additional movement, or it will be a pretty stilted exercise. Home brewery or cask room Why not? Maybe you’ll create the next great Southern California microbrew. Reading retreat

Ideal if you need a quiet place away from everyone to finish that book you started four months ago or you need to hide from the rest of your family for a couple of hours. Because this is a dwelling unit and not a shed, it will have a lock to keep everyone else out of your hair. There are many companies that make prefab sheds and modular structures with customizable options, or you can have one built to your own specifications. You want to make sure your ADU has plenty of natural light coming in from large windows. For one thing, you want to take advantage of any outdoor landscaping that can provide a good view. But any work in an office or for a studio will necessitate an airy space with windows that can open, especially if you work with paint or other chemicals used in art. Having a versatile, airy design will also be an asset to your home’s resale value.

One last Community Sing for retiring choral director FROM LJS&C REPORTS Before taking his final bow as Choral Director of La Jolla Symphony & Chorus (LJS&C) in June, David Chase will gather a crowd of choral enthusiasts for an afternoon of serious-but-fun singing. Calling it his “Sayonara Sing,” the program is set for 4 p.m. Sunday, April 30 at St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic Church, 6628 Santa Isabel in Carlsbad. “I’ve chosen Leonard Bernstein’s ‘Chichester Psalms,’ which, like ‘Messiah,’ so many of us have performed and enjoyed,” Chase said. “This Sing is aimed at all veterans of the annual Messiah-Sing and

alumni of the choruses I’ve conducted over the last 43 years. Everyone is welcome. The format will be the same: rehearsal, then a performance run-through. It’s not practical to have the orchestra play, so we’ll use the excellent David Chase arrangement for organ, harp and percussion, which is sanctioned by composer and publisher.” Tickets (which include use of loaner scores) are $12 at (858) 534-4637 or lajollasymphony.com
