The rollout of the new citywide Bikeshare program — with 19 stations proposed in Pacific Beach — is drawing mixed reviews from local bike-rental owners. “It’s a good thing getting people on bikes, moving and coming to PB and spending money locally,” said Heather Jones, co-owner of Pacific Beach Bikes at 852 Garnet Ave. about the new privately financed program wherein bicycles will be available for shared use to individuals on

Final fate of De Anza residents rests with judge
BAYSIDE BATTLEGROUND After a decade of wrangling, city officials are about to learn how much it will cost to displace residents of the De Anza Cove mobile-home park on Mission Bay.

How much and how often the city must pay residents of De Anza Cove mobile-home park to relocate following a decade-long court battle is in the hands of a Superior Court judge. Judge Charles Hayes is expected to decide soon what the city should pay mobile-home park residents in relocation fees. The process of trying to remove residents from the 75-acre park on prime real estate jutting into the water in Mission Bay Park west of Interstate 5 was initiated by the city in 2003. Ultimately, the city reached a $3.6 million settlement agreement on one of three lawsuits involving current and former residents of the 500-unit De Anza Cove Resort mobile-home park. The settled dispute stems from the treatment residents said they received by a management

City, residents launching education campaign, plan extra trash pickups
By DAVE SCHWAB
The goal is to turn Mission Beach into a no-fly zone. Not a military maneuver, but rather a large-scale cooperative effort between the city and the beach community to reduce the fly population during the busy summertime months when tourists — and trash — multiply and intensify the pest problem. “There’s an increase in trash generated in the summer in Mission Beach with tourists and the large num-
ber of vacation-home rentals,” said Jose Ysea, spokesman for the city’s environmental services. “This is a nuisance, particularly to the restaurants and the businesses.” Ysea said the city was asked by the beach community to do additional trash pickups, an impossible option given the city’s budget con-

Coast of PB Restaurant Walk: discover new culinary delights
By DAVE SCHWAB
Bring your appetites and feast on eclectic cuisine from a host of eateries during the Coast of Pacific Beach Restaurant Walk on Tuesday, May 20 from 4 to 9 p.m. “Our Coast of Pacific Beach Restaurant Walk is one of our most popular events, and this year we have a record 30 restaurants participating, including brand-new restaurants and beer tastings at Amplified Aleworks,” said Sara Berns, executive director of Discover Pacific Beach. Berns said restaurant walks are “great ways to bring the community out, sample and promote our dining establishments and create a night of folks walking past businesses and discovering something they may have never seen before.” Berns said the self-guided event is not just for the benefit of local restaurants. “We encourage our retailers to come out and take advantage of the foot traffic, as well,” she said. Event tickets are $20 presale and $25 event day. Participating restaurants include:
710 Beach Club, Amplified Ale, Bare Back Grill, Big Kahunas Homemade Ice Cream, Bubs, Cabo Cantina, Coconut Thai, Pacific Beach Tuesday Farmers Market, Fat Sal’s , Filippis Pizza Grotto, Firehouse Eatery and Lounge, Miller’s Field, Moray’s On Mission Bay, Ocean’s Pizzeria, Ra Ka De Ka, Rubios, Shore Club, Spice Lounge, The Duck Dive, The Wood, Tony Romas, Mad Beat and The Truck Stop.

co-chaired by Wendy Crain and Debbie Watkins, dates back to May 2013 and the influence of local historian Phil Prather, who co-wrote “Images of America: Mission Beach.” The history of Mission Beach goes back to June 14, 1914, when a syndicate headed by John D. Spreckles and managed by George S. Barney submitted a subdivision map surveyed by D.A. Loebenstein to the Common Council (now known as the City Council) of San Diego for approval. On Dec. 14, 1914, the first official map of Mission Beach was signed and adopted. For more information, visit www.missionbeachcentennial.org.

Padre announcer (who almost was) reflects on stadium job hunt Todd Leitz was one of two UC San Diego graduates, along with marine biologist Sam Chin — who also has ties to the Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Center on Mission Bay — who were runners-up to New Hampshire resident Alex Miniak in the job hunt for Petco Park’s next public-address announcer. The trio was culled from a field of more than 800 who originally tried out to be the Padres’ next P.A. announcer. That voluminous field was narrowed down to 50, then 30, then 10 — with the help of a fan vote. It finally led to the last three standing. Miniak bested Chin and Leitz after each had the opportunity to announce a full game at Petco Park. A senior account executive with Gigunda Group, Miniak said he plans to move to San Diego, leaving his current role as the publicaddress announcer for the New Hampshire Fisher Cats, the Double-A affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays. “Alex has the iconic voice that we were looking for, and we’re excited to welcome him to the Padres family,” said Padres chief marketing officer Wayne Partello. He said Miniak, who was picked from “a tremendous pool of tal-
ent,” has “the right voice to take us into the next era of Petco Park.” Leitz, the first-runner-up for the announcing job, said the threemonth-long selection process was a real learning experience, adding he has no regrets and no hard feelings about not being picked. A Studio City resident in Los Angeles, Leitz is a public-information officer for MYSAFE: LA. He is a former radio news anchor and reporter. “I’ve always loved baseball, and I thought, ‘I could do that. How fun would that be?,’” said Leitz about the seasonal, part-time posi-

tion. Leitz came back to San Diego four or five times in three months for auditions. “I’m proud they liked my voice and how I handled myself,” Leitz said, adding he felt the edge Miniak had in besting his final two opponents was his “eight seasons of experience as a minor-league announcer.” Leitz said he’d do it all again, too. “I hope I have another chance to audition for some other major league team. I thank the Padres for the opportunity and for a fun ride,” he said.
By DAVE SCHWAB OH SO CLOSE Marine biologist Sam Chin, who has ties to the Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute on Mission Bay, got as close as the top three for candidates to fill the public-address announcer job for the San Diego Padres.

St. Paul’s Lutheran returns sparkle to PB during cleanup

straints. “So we looked at other ways of attacking the fly issue and started an outreach campaign, working with the Mission Beach Town Council and some business owners to come up with ideas on how to reduce flies in the area,” said Ysea. What the city and community came up with was a multi-point program for reducing the fly population by disrupting the insect’s life cycle. The fly eradication educational program encourages beach residents to: • securely bag all trash; • use trashcan liners and tie them off after four days; • spray diluted bleach on trash container bodies and lids as an insecticide; • keep trashcan lids closed; • replace cracked or damaged
trash cans with new ones; • keep trash containers in dark spaces, which flies do not prefer; and • keep debris and vegetation cleared away from trash receptacles. Ysea said the city is offering trashcans and bags at a discount and spreading the word about the anti-fly effort through public outreach. “We’re taking names and informing people who need replacement trash and recycling bins that they can get new trash bins for $70 and free recyling bins for a delivery charge of $25, which is waived for Mission Beach residents who sign up,” he said. Ysea said the city will have a booth at the May 17 “Legends of the Surf ” Mission Beach centennial celebration at San Fernando Court, where local residents can sign up for discounted trashcans and liners.

In another show of community pride, 135 students and 12 teachers from St. Paul’s Lutheran School joined hands in a neighborhood cleanup recently. The cleanups are continually drawing more participants because of pride in their community, said organizers. Students and teachers fanned out in groups to remove trash and recyclables littering local streets and sidewalks stretching as far west as Cass Street, east to Ingraham Street, south to Felspar Street, and north to Chalcedony Street, as well as the parking lot of Wells Fargo bank. The neighborhood cleanups are a continuation of the Pacific Beach Town Council beach cleanups, which once took place on the first Saturday of every month, but have since shifted the focus to the neighborhoods, thanks to first-year PBTC board member Kristi Nelson. “I took volunteers off the beach to spread the cleanups across PB,
community’s efforts to eradicate flies, nonprofit BeautifulMB has also developed a low-cost, voluntary second trash pickup and cancleaning program for residents, property- and vacation-rental agencies and businesses. The summer program will consist of 14 additional trashcan pickups in Mission Beach between June 6 and Sept. 6, with at least one trashcan cleaning that will include deodorizing and bacteria protection. Free trashcan liners are also being sponsored by Bill Luther Realty and San Diego Vacation Rentals. Scavenging of trash bins is also illegal. Those witnessing scavenging are encouraged to report it by calling city code enforcement at (858) 694-7000 on weekdays and the San Diego Police Department at (619) 531-2000 after hours and on weekends.

and it is working,” she said. “With no drinking on the beach now, the amount of trash is greatly reduced.” Nelson’s approach was to send out a flier to various local businesses, schools, service clubs, churches and hotels, then to follow up with a phone call. When one of the groups would express an interest, coordinators would name the month, date, time and location for the cleanup. The cleanup would then be scheduled on the PBTC’s
calendar of events. Following the cleanup, the organization now sends a blurb and photo to Nelson, which she sends to the PBTC and gets posted in the PBTC newsletter and on its website. The St. Paul’s Lutheran School cleanup is the actually the third cleanup recently. The other two groups to launch into the community spruce-up campaign were Fire Station 21 and Baldwin Academy. Pacific Beach Middle School participated in a neighborhood cleanup on April 11, and there are two other neighborhood cleanups scheduled on April 22, with participants Crown Point Junior Music Academy and Duck Dive. Churches, service clubs, schools or businesses interested in participating in a neighborhood cleanup are urged to contact the Pacific Beach Town Council at (858) 4836666, or visit the PBTC office at 1706 Garnet Ave.
NO-FLY ZONE City officials and a group of concerned residents and business owners have launched a campaign to educate others on the causes and prevention of fly proliferation, particularly during the heavy tourist-season months when trash accumulates more quickly. A volunteer group is also planning a second trashcan pickup this summer on top of the normal city pickup to hold down the nuisance.

taxes — sales, income or property — to the city, and I pay all three,” said Russell. “It’s going to turn people off to riding bikes.” The city is working with national partner Decobike to bring the Bikeshare program to neighborhoods beginning this summer. Bikeshare is intended to provide affordable access to bicycles for short-distance trips in urban areas as an alternative to motorized public transportation or private automobiles. The goal is to reduce parking and traffic congestion, as well as air pollution. One Bikeshare objective, according to company officials, is to connect the first or last mile between public-transit hubs. Bikeshare programs, they said, also address some of the primary disadvantages to bicycle ownership, including loss from theft or vandalism, lack of parking or storage and maintenance. Under the Bikeshare concept, customers may access program bicycles via a network of city bikesharing stations, checking them out from any station and returning them to any other station. Stations are solar-powered and automated and will operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Each station will have a map indicating other station locations. The new bikeshare program is being conducted in phases with the goal of ultimately providing 180 stations with 1,800 bikes citywide. Pacific Beach is among the first neighborhoods in the Bikeshare program’s initial phase. The 19 proposed bike stations in Pacific Beach are: Turquoise Street and La Jolla Mesa Drive; Turquoise Street and Cass Street; La Jolla Boulevard and Tourmaline Street; Loring Street and Cass Street; Cass Street and Chalcedony Street; Missouri Street and Mission Boulevard; Cass Street and Felspar Street; Garnet Avenue and Ocean Boulevard; Bayard Street and Garnet Avenue; Cass Street and Garnet Avenue; Fanuel Street and Garnet Avenue; Ingraham Street and Garnet Avenue; Garnet Avenue and Kendall Street; Morrell Street and Garnet Avenue; Grand Avenue and Bayard Street; Grand Avenue and Mission Boulevard; Reed Avenue and Oliver Court; Pacific Beach Drive and Mission Boulevard; and Pacific Beach Drive and Olney Street. Andy Hanshaw, executive director of the San Diego County Bicycle Coalition, a nonprofit promoting bicycling regionwide, said the cycling community is excited about Bikeshare’s arrival. “It’s already in Miami, New York City and Washington, D.C.,” said Hanshaw, pointing out Bikeshare is “not a competing bike network,”
“[Bikeshare] will encourage people to ride and, ultimately, help the local bike industry ... I can see it used as a convenience for people to get to local places and to work.” ANDY HANSHAW Executive director, San Diego County Bicycle Coalition
but a component of an overall transportation system. “It will encourage people to ride and, ultimately, help the local bike industry,” Hanshaw said, noting Bikeshare is geared primarily toward short, 30-minute trips that will “fill transportation gaps for many people. “I can see it used as a convenience for people to get to local places and to work,” said Hanshaw. Hanshaw said Bikeshare is being financed privately by Decobike, which is fronting start-up costs for the station-to-station network, while the city as a partner is invested in promoting the new cyclingsharing program. Many proposed Bikeshare stations are near transit stops, which Hanshaw said “is smart,” because he said it will allow people to complete the “first or last mile” of their commuter trip. Jones said she believes Bikeshare may be positive in that it could introduce people to bicycling as a transportation option that could later become a lifestyle. The bike-shop owner expects some competition from Bikeshare, but said, “It’s not going to impact us too much.” She said her clients typically rent longer term — for hours rather than minutes — so they can ride the Mission Bay loop, which includes Sea World and the
coast up to La Jolla. Jones said there a dozen or more existing bike shops in Pacific Beach, with new ones continually “popping up all over the place.” But she added it’s mostly “friendly competition,” and that business has been good and steady. Russell, on the other hand, is convinced Bikeshare isn’t being done right and is doomed to failure because of its poor business model. “(Bikeshare) is prohibitively expensive, like a gym membership,” he said. “It’s not going to work. It’s going to be a waste of money.” Russell said a customer can rent a bike for $18 a day at Surf Monkey, whereas it would cost $50 or $60 to rent from Bikeshare for a comparable period of time. He pointed out one of the big problems with Bikeshare, as proposed, is that “it’s not integrated with the bus or trolley transportation systems. “They need to bring the two together,” he said. “Just putting a bike stand next to bus stop is not incorporating the two.” Russell said there’s a real waitand-see attitude now toward whether Bikeshare will succeed in San Diego. “We don’t really know what to expect from them,” he said.

Del Mar resident Mariko Kelly recently rowed her way to three firstplace finishes at the Long Beach Invitational during the weekend of April 12-13. Kelly was joined by San Diego Rowing Club (SDRC) teammates Sarah Hoskin, Marissa Gibson and Jillian Renly to win the women’s quadruple sculls. Though in third place at the start, the four powered together to pull through for the win. They beat last year’s national champions, Long Beach Junior Crew, for the gold. SDRC rows on Mission Bay. The Long Beach Invitational featured more than 20 of the state’s top rowing teams and was held at Marine Stadium in Long Beach, the site of the 1932 Olympic rowing venue. The race was 1,100 meters, with seven lanes of racing. Kelly is a junior at La Jolla Country Day School and has been rowing for SDRC for three years. Hoskin is a senior at the Academy of Our Lady Peace in San Diego and is headed to Fordham University on a rowing scholarship next year.
Hoskin was joined by Evelyn Hall, a senior at the San Diego School of Creative and Performing Arts, to win silver in the lightweight women’s double. Senior Marissa Gibson shared two of those golds with Kelly, one in the quad and another in the women’s pair. Gibson is a senior La Jolla High School and is headed to the University of Wisconsin on a rowing scholarship. Jillian Renly is a sophomore at University City High School. She won gold in the quad and double with Kelly, also nabbing the bronze in the women’s single. The team is coached by two-time Olympic gold medalist Susan Francia. The Long Beach Invitational is considered to be the final tune-up before the boats headed to Southwest Regionals at Lake Natoma in Sacramento on May 3-4. Southwest Regionals is the qualifier for U.S. Junior Nationals. Last year, the quad representing SDRC took fourth place by a mere one one-hundredth of a second.

News QUICKHITS >> PROBE CONTINUES INTO RAZOR BLADES MALICIOUSLY PLACED IN BONITA COVE PARK
REMEMBER WHEN? >> FOLKS HAVE BEEN enjoying fast food at the southeast corner of Garnet Avenue and Lamont Street for at least 75 years. Some local residents recall dining on Henry’s hot dogs before there was a Jack in the Box. Howard Rozelle took this shot of Eno’s Soda Fountain in 1947.

MUSTSee >> Head down to where the surf meets the sand at San Fernando Court on Saturday, May 17 as the Old Mission Beach Athletic Club (OMBAC) hosts its annual Longboard Surf Contest. The surf event includes open and menehune (16 and under) divisions for classic longboards and no leashes. Signups take place from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. at San Fernando Court, south of the Belmont Park coaster parking area. The proceeds from the event benefit the San Diego Junior Lifeguards Foundation.

An investigation is continuing into an incident involving two boys who cut their feet on two of 19 razor blades ultimately found embedded in the grass area of Bonita Cove Park at Mission Bay on May 1. The malicious acts occurred near playground equipment in the 1100 block of West Mission Bay Drive. San Diego police officer Dino Delimitros said it appeared that the razor blades had “purposefully been lodged in the grass to cut whoever stepped on them.'' He said a subsequent search with a metal detector turned up a total of 19 planted blades, two of which sliced the feet of the two boys — one relatively severely. It was not the first time razor blades have been found in Mission Beach in a public park, according to authorities. In August 2013, lifeguards and city workers discovered eight single-edge razor blades planted in the ground with the sharp edge up. They had been placed in the grass surrounding one of two playgrounds at Bonita Cove, a shallow inlet just east of Mission Boulevard and south of Mission

ceeding and to stand trial on 15 charges that follow the arrests of Boone and nine others a year ago. Deputy District Attorney Jorge Del Portillo said new charges have been filed that allege Boone possessed seven guns in his residence, along with methamphetamine. The penalties are greater for someone to be charged with possession of methamphetamine and guns. Boone was the only employee of the Sportcenter at 1010 Santa Clara Place to be charged, and all the other defendants have since been sentenced to either jail terms, community service or credit for time served. San Diego police, the sheriff’s department, the Maritime Task Force and the Office of Homeland Security were part of the investigation that was started in 2012. — Neal Putnam
Bay Drive near Mission Beach. At that time, lifeguards were called to assist in the afternoon after a 41-year-old woman sought medical attention after stepping on one of the blades. Authorities then discovered several other blades. The area where the woman was cut was cordoned off by city crews, which combed the area with rakes and metal detectors. There are unconfirmed reports that even more of these types of incidents involving razor blades have previously been reported at Bonita Cove Park. — Dave Schwab EX-SPORTSCENTER EMPLOYEE T0 STAND TRIAL IN ALLEGED DRUG-TRAFFICKING CASE
A former employee of the Mission Bay Sportcenter waived his right to a preliminary hearing May 8 and was ordered to stand trial on 15 counts of transportation, possession and sale of methamphetamine that had allegedly been stored in some lockers of the business. Jason Morgan Boone, 41, of San Diego, will get a trial date June 3 in San Diego Superior Court. He has pleaded not guilty to all charges and remains free on $500,000 bond. Instead of having the prosecution call witnesses, Boone and his lawyer agreed to waive the pro-

The band’s musical stories are all spelled out in its song titles, like “Thinkin’ of Drinkin’” and “Crazy Mabel,” both of which do capture a wonderful retro sound, though the attitude and spirit is timeless. They may be a good listen, but make sure to bring your dancing shoes. This is a group that will get your feet moving from the first beat. • KARLING & THE KADAVERS: Saturday, May 24 at TIO LEO’S,

One of the longest running is Rockola’s annual tribute to George Harrison, to be held this year on Friday, May 23 at Humphreys Backstage Live. The band will lovingly re-create Harrison’s hits from throughout his career, including the Beatles’ “Something,” The Traveling Wilburys’ “Handle with Care” and
mance by Joe and his Quintet featuring pianist Reka Parker. Affectionately known as the scene’s “Godfather,” Marillo has released several great recordings. But his greater impact has been on the live club circuit and especially as a music teacher, where he has mentored and taught hundreds of students over the decades. This concert is a great opportunity to hear music from one of our town’s living legends. Stop in and wish him a happy birthday. • JOE MARILLO: Saturday, May 24 at DIZZY’S, 4275 Mission Bay Drive. 8 p.m. $15. www.dizzysjazz.com.

MBHS musicians to toot own horn for vital program funding By BART MENDOZA
Mission Bay High School’s award-winning music program, led by musical director JP Balmat, continues to draw nationwide acclaim with its various ensembles. This month, the school hosts two events that will showcase the program’s finest talents while raising muchneeded funding for the program. On May 17, starting at noon, is the fourth annual Jazz on the Green (JOG) concert. The outdoor event will include sets from the MBHS Preservationists and Jazz Ensemble, with special guests the Euphoria Brass Band (including Balmat). Food and refreshments will be available. Then, on May 29, the school’s auditorium will be the location of “The May Show,” which will feature the entire music program, including the Preservationists, jazz ensemble, choir and concert band. In total, 120 students will take part. Balmat said each concert experience will be unique. “I am always tailoring sets to excite our audience,” Balmat said. “Jazz on the Green, which takes place outside in the school’s quad area, will feature many genres of jazz, from swing to brass band. ‘The May Show,’ which takes place inside the auditorium, will be a
mixture of jazz, classical and vocal pieces.” Given a preference, he gives Jazz on the Green the slight edge. “I love playing outdoors,” he said. “It’s a more relaxed environment, and I think it allows the audience to connect more with the performers. JOG is the perfect event for this. ‘The May Show’ is a more formal concert, so inside is more suiting.” According to Balmat, not only are shows like this fun, they are also crucial to the program’s existence. “These events allow our students to showcase their talents and allows us to show the community all the hard work that goes on inside the classroom,” he said. “It is also very important when it comes to fundraising. We are in constant need of funds for new instruments, coaches, music, you name it.” This has included student field trip to New Orleans — the birthplace of jazz — where they have participated in workshops and played acclaimed concerts. Speaking from personal experience, he said music a vital part of a student’s curriculum. “Music is the reason I came to school every day,” he said. “Sometimes we get lost in the sea of stu-
dents, but music is a way for these students to shine and be proud about their own abilities. It is a very personal thing, while still emphasizing the importance of team work.” Despite the hours of hard work as a teacher and event organizer, Balmat said he is happy to be making music and helping students. “I love the music we perform,” he said. “I try to make every piece we play personal, taking into account what the students will find exciting. If the students see me excited, hopefully that will rub off,” he said. “I enjoy seeing students ‘get it.’ There is a change when students see the power and enjoyment of taking their craft seriously. When they are able to get to that point, they will always be able to find music when they need it.” Balmat grows reflective. “It’s like becoming fluent in a language,” he said. “You no longer think, you react. I can’t help but be here every day to see those moments. It makes all the hours worth it,” he said. • JAZZ ON THE GREEN/”MAY DAY SHOW”: Saturday, May 17 and May 29, MISSION BAY HIGH SCHOOL,

Empire Beauty finds room for growth after business-location swap
By KEITH ANTIGIOVANNI
PB store would sport a new enhanced-salon feel Longtime Pacific Beach business Empire Beauty Supply and Salon is in the process of relocating from the venue it has called home for the last 26 years at 1660 Garnet Ave., east of the CVS store. The salon is in the process of moving to its new location across the street to the property that once housed Pacific Coast Bicycles at 1637 Garnet Ave. Empire Beauty Supply’s move is in response to the remodeling and property swaps at the shopping center on the north side of the 1600 block of Garnet Avenue. The remodel will mean Staples will move two doors east to the present CVS store location, while CVS will consolidate that same site with its other store just east at Pacific Plaza. “We were told last October or November that the shopping center would be remodeled and that our lease would expire after June 30,” said Empire Beauty Supply owner Bryce Goldman. “Other than that, we weren’t given any other information on the lease,” he said. Goldman said he feels the new location
will have more of a superstore and enhanced-salon feel because it will grow to 4,500 square feet. He said Empire Beauty will also have adequate parking for its customers (14 spaces in the front, five in the back), with a plan to create a second entrance/exit at the back of the store. Ironically, the store will be located close to where Empire Beauty Supply was originally located in Pacific Beach prior to 1988. There is also a plan in the works for Joy Max Cleaners, located at1609 Garnet Ave., to move to 1637 Garnet. Goldman’s grandfather, Irv, started Empire Beauty Supply and Salon in 1945 and ran the business into the early 1970s until Irv’s son, Rick Goldman, took over until 1995. Goldman then handed over the reins to his son, Bryce. “We want our customers to know that we’ll be open for business the entire time and hope to be finished moving in by early June, with a grand opening on July 1, so both stores might co-exist for a couple of weeks,” Goldman said.
GROOMING GROWTH Empire Beauty Supply and Salon has relocated across the street from its former location after a reported business-location swap and/or expansion involving Trader Joe’s, Staples and CVS. The move allows Empire Beauty to expand and still have adequate parking.
