Hotline lets residents be eyes, ears on water-pollution issues

Volunteer training for Coastkeeper’s water-monitoring program on tap BY MARTIN JONES WESTLIN BEACH & BAY PRESS

If you laid San Diego County’s 4,200 square miles end to end, the line would stretch from Honolulu to Chicago. Of the nation’s 3,000 counties, San Diego has the 12th largest farm economy and is the fifth most populous, with its 3.14 million population representing a 10 percent increase over the year 2000. Its coastline alone stretches 70 miles and takes about 90 minutes to drive.

The last statistic concerns San Diego Coastkeeper the most. A 2011 study by the environmental watchdog said all that size and activity (coupled with the county’s aging drainage infrastructure) has meant increased pollution levels in the county’s 11 watersheds that feed into the Pacific Ocean. But another set of numbers reflects Coastkeeper’s efforts in stemming the flow of the bad stuff — and for one official, the SEE TRAINING, Page 5

When it comes to water pollution, San Diego Coastkeeper is at the forefront of monitoring the health of San Diego’s waterways. Not surprisingly, however, the nonprofit’s resources are often stretched thin, leaving potential holes in the effort to achieve total wellness in area creeks, rivers and oceans. That’s why the group is lightening its burden by asking San

Diegans to step in and keep an eye on things. Enter the pollution reporting hotline. The pollution reporting hotline is just that — a way for residents to reach out when they witness pollution and bring it to the attention of the appropriate authorities. And because knowing who the appropriate authority is can be tricky when it comes to reporting, say, runoff water flowing onto our beaches or a neighbor improperly SEE HOTLINE, Page 5

MBHS alum in spotlight as Army’s assistant football coach Long-running Army-Navy gridiron classic set for Dec. 8 this year

Former Mission Bay High quarterback Andy Guyader will be the assistant coach for the Army team in the Dec. 8 Army-Navy gridiron classic. After his graduation from Mission Bay High, Guyader went on to play for Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and then coached high school ball.

BY KEITH ANTIGIOVANNI | BEACH & BAY PRESS The 113th edition of the Army-Navy football game will take place on Saturday, Dec. 8 to mark the official end of the college football regular season. Since 1890, thousands of cadets, midshipmen, coaches and players — including former Heisman Trophy winners Roger Staubach (Navy) and Glenn Davis (Army) — have been a part of what is arguably college football’s greatest rivalry in a sport full of great rivalries. One of the participants in this year’s battle is Pacific Beach native and Army Black Knight assistant coach Andy Guyader, who will be coaching in his fifth straight Army-Navy . “[It’s] something I couldn’t ever equate to anything else,” Guyader said, relishing his first-hand experience of the longtime battle between the nation’s oldest military academies. “But I can tell

you that last year, I remember standing on the sideline and looking up into the sixth row and seeing the president of the United States, which pretty much sums it up. It is an emotion-filled day for a lot of people.” Guyader arrived at West Point with Rich Ellerson after Ellerson was hired by Army to be the head football coach before the 2009 season. “Moving here to the East Coast is a very different atmosphere compared to the West Coast, as well as the military aspect of it, so there was a lot of adjusting involved,” Guyader said. “But some of the best people I’ve ever met have been here at West Point.” Guyader was the starting quarterback for the Mission Bay High Buccaneers for three years between 1989 and 1991 before attending college at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, where he played for the Mustangs from 1992 to 1996. After he graduated with a master’s degree in civil

engineering, Guyader began his coaching career at Pasadena Poly High School across the street from Cal Poly. He spent 2001 to 2003 there as the offensive coordinator and helped lead the school to a CIF title in 2002. Following Pasadena Poly High, he spent the next five years on the coaching staff at Cal Poly from 2004 to 2008. “Coaching isn’t any different than teaching a class,” he said.

QUICKHITS Drug deal goes south, turns into armed robbery An apparent marijuana deal led to an armed robbery and fight that left one man injured in the 2100 block of Garnet Avenue around 1 a.m. on Dec. 1, according to police. Investigators said two white men in their twenties were engaging in a marijuana transaction when an argument ensued and one of the men pulled a gun to steal some of the pot. Police said the robber attempted to tie the hands of the pot seller and another man who was inside the apartment when the argument became physical. Two other suspects entered the apartment and the fight moved to the balcony area, where one of the apartment residents was pushed from the balcony, landing below, said police. The suspects fled in a 1999 white

Toyota 4 Runner SUV. One victim suffered abrasions and a small bump on his head. The other apartment occupant was not injured. The suspects were described as four Hispanic males, but police did not release any further descriptions. Northern Division is investigating.

Man stabbed by unknown attacker; motive unclear Investigators are looking in the stabbing of a man in the 2200 block of Grand Avenue shortly before 9 p.m. on Nov. 22. The victim, described as a 29-yearold Hispanic man, was stabbed at least once in the chest by an unknown assailant or possibly more than one, according to police. The victim’s wife reported the incident when the man stumbled into their home. Police said it was not clear where or why the incident might have occurred, but the case remains under investigation.



disposing of waste, Coastkeeper acts as a liaison between vigilant residents and the city department that can address their concerns. “We’re trying to use our connections to get reports to the right people,” said Jill Witkowski, waterkeeper for Coastkeeper. “Also, some people want to remain anonymous, so there’s more privacy for those who maybe aren’t comfortable providing names to the city. It can also be hard for the city to follow through with anonymous complaints, so we act as the go-between in those cases.” In some instances, Coastkeeper also provides a more thorough experience than the city has the resources for. “Some residents want a follow-up to their inquiry, to know what happened, but the city doesn’t have the capacity to do that,” Witkowski said. “We can follow through and keep people informed.” Recently, La Jolla was the site of two cases of water pollution that, through Coastkeeper’s hotline, were brought to the attention of city officials and quickly resolved. In one case, a resident witnessed a neighbor dumping paint down a storm drain. The resident called the hotline, and the information got passed to Witkowski, who emailed it to the city’s stormwater hotline. When she hadn’t heard back a week later — and when the concerned resident complained that the issue was ongoing — Witkowski decided to call the city’s Think Blue hotline and requested information on the initial complaint. She found out the city’s inspector hadn’t been able to reach the offending resident until that day, but was finally able to get in touch and inform the resident of the policies regarding the disposal of paint. According to a write-up that Witkowski posted on Coastkeeper’s website, when the resident who had filed the complaint returned home that evening, the neighbor was hard

at work cleaning up the mess. “Reporting these issues is often a last ditch effort for people when they feel like they can’t talk to their neighbors,” Witkowski said. “We like to see it as a way for everybody to pitch in to educate others and help change behaviors, which will lead us to better water quality. We’re just trying to provide a service to help those that can’t reach a solution through neighborly conversation.” In another case, a La Jollan brought to Coastkeeper’s attention the build-up of sand, mud and debris that had caused the low-flow diversion drains in the community to be clogged, thus causing urban runoff to flow directly into the stormwater drains — and right on to the beach. Though the hotline has been in effect for quite some time, Witkowski said the number of incoming calls and emails has increased lately — heartening news for those who, no matter how badly they want to combat water pollution, simply can’t be everywhere at once. “The more we can talk about the pollution problem, the more likely it will be we can do something about it,” she said. “We all contribute to pollution, and it’s difficult and expensive to expect the city and county to clean up after we’ve caused the problem, instead of doing our part to confront it beforehand. I think if people look at it as a pocketbook issue, hopefully that could be an effective message and they’d be prompted to do something.” Doing something, Witkowski said, can be as easy as talking about action. “We need to get educated about the impacts of the choices we make, and we can all act on the little things to prevent pollution,” she said. “Taking your car to a car wash that collects the soapy water or washing your car in the grass if you can, making sure your sprinklers water the grass and not the sidewalk — these are all little things we can do. Once we’re able to do those things in our own lives, we can talk to our friends and neighbors. It’s that simple.”


people behind the stats make all the difference in the group’s effectiveness. One Saturday a month, a core of Coastkeeper volunteers take to the county’s waterways at 40 locations that feed into nine of the 11 area watersheds, loading up on samples for presentation of data to various state and local environmental offices and the Environmental Protection Agency. It’s not as easy as it sounds, because the volunteers do more than gather water — they’re responsible for the actual sample analysis, shoring up state and local governments’ limited collection resources. Coastkeeper’s water-quality laboratory manager credits the program with making the county’s monitoring effort one of the biggest and best in the state. “Because our volunteers produce professional-level data,” Travis Pritchard said,

B E A C H & B AY P R E S S | D E C E M B E R , 6 , 2 0 1 2

“they become a vital part of the Coastkeeper team and of a larger effort by many community, government and corporate stakeholders to understanding San Diego County’s water quality and how to improve it.” Coastkeeper recently announced its 2013 volunteer monitoring schedule, which begins with training sessions on Jan. 26 and continues March 16, May 18, July 20, Sept. 14 and Nov. 16. The last sample collection of 2012 takes place on Saturday, Dec. 15. Sample collections in 2013 take place beginning Feb. 23 and continue April 20, June 22, Aug, 17, Oct. 19 and Dec. 14. Founded in 1995, Coastkeeper has been gathering its data since 2000 and has just signed its 700th volunteer. The group’s 2011 watershed report, its first, noted that 85 recruits collected samples reflecting the health of nine watersheds for 2009-10 from the Tijuana River site to just south of Fallbrook. The majority of the watersheds’ health readings fell


into the “fair” category. No county watershed scored in the “marginal” or “excellent” ranges. While these data may not always augur well, the solutions do — and Pritchard said the volunteers play a vital role to that end for one very important reason. “Water-quality professionals,” Pritchard said, “are terrible at getting their data out to the public. I know what you mean about the [colossally thick] reports from places like the [California] Coastal Commission and the EPA. [The volunteers] make the collection process faster from our end and not adding to the backlog. They understand our way of using data to tell a story … We are extremely grateful for them.” For a look at Coastkeeper’s watershed report, visit For information on how to become a water-quality monitor, email or call the group’s community engagement coordinator at (619) 758-7743, ext. 131.

Here are few items to consider. If your estate, including your home equity, life insurance and retirements plans are valued at over $1 million in 2013 and you die, the amount over will be taxed at about 50%. If a deceased persons estate is valued at $1.1 milVirginia Weber Laskowitz lion, the federal estate tax will be $50,000. There Estate Attorney are legal ways to change this scenario, but you must have the proper legal advice to do so. Income tax rates and capital gains rates are going up. This will mean that you will pay higher taxes on any dividend and earned income you have. Shifting the tax by gifting is something that you may want to consider. Irrevocable trusts can be used to move assets out of your estate while not letting your beneficiaries spend all the funds upon receipt. Marital Trusts or A-B Trusts are very important for married couples to have to ensure that each of them will be able to keep their federal estate tax exemption amount. Have you reviewed your trust lately?

Santa and a spirited crew will be on hand for the Pacific Beach Holiday Parade on Saturday, Dec. 15.


a day of it and complete their holiday shopping in our local businesses, grab dinner at your favorite PB restaurant and stroll along the streets to check out the great window decorating,” said Sara Berns, Discover PB’s executive director. “This is a day to come out and celebrate the holidays with your community.” The Pacific Beach Holiday Parade was first established in 1977. To pay homage to Pacific Beach’s 125th anniversary this year as well, the parade is themed “Holidays Past and Presents” to showcase PB’s longstanding history and distinct community culture throughout the years. Floats and classic cars will reflect the theme, and parade participants are encouraged to dress in garb from their favorite time period.

Despite the community’s fondness for the annual holiday parade, the longstanding Pacific Beach tradition has experienced a couple of setbacks over the years, forcing its cancellation in 2009, revived in 2010, and cancelled again just last year because of a lack of funding. “The parade is difficult to fund because there are no income sources like vendors or concession sales, like you would have for a festival,” said Berns. “Because our parade is so long, the street closure — which is charged per block — is very expensive.” This year, however, a dedicated group of community members made it their mission to bring the parade back — hopefully, for good. “Discover PB decided to move forward with the parade because of the huge effort made by the community to raise the funds,” Berns said. “People that live and work in this community really make

it happen and wanted to see the parade return.” Through fundraising efforts spearheaded by the Beach Bar Guild and generous support from the Pacific Beach Community Foundation, the community’s goal to save the parade this year has been achieved. “They started with a goal last year to save the parade and worked tirelessly to get it done,” said Berns. “They raised the majority of the funding needed for the parade by hosting events attended by the community to bring this parade back.” To ensure the community’s beloved holiday event continues long into the future, businesses and community members are encouraged to contribute to the Pacific Beach Holiday Parade fund throughout the year.

Members of the Pacific Beach Town Council (PBTC) recently presented a $500 donation to Capt. Brian Ahearn (right) to bolster the much-needed improvements to the police department’s community storefront in Pacific Beach. Shown are, from left, John Wilding, J.C.Wilding & Co. Contractors Inc; Joe Wilding (handing check), outgoing PBTC president; Susan Lowary, PBTC Communications Committee chairwoman; Alan Harris, incoming PBTC president; Michelle Fulks, Bird Rock Community Council board member; and Ahearn, who is with Northern Division. Officials say the storefront is sorely in need of a deep cleaning, new paint, and repairs to walls, floors and the bathroom. More funding is obviously needed for these and a desired trash compactor and water purifier, but officials agree this is a good start.

Typhoon Saloon and Fred’s: double the game-day excitement under one roof BY MARIKO LAMB | BEACH & BAY PRESS

acquisition of seasoned pro quarterback Peyton Manning. Despite the contemporary fan base, Fred’s’ affiliation with the Broncos dates back many years. “One of our employees that worked here with us for a summer, Byron Chamberlain, actually played for the Broncos and has two Super Bowl rings as part of that team,” said Dickert. “He helped get it started. We put out a couple posts and found several [Broncos] groups as well, and it started from there.” With both the Niners and the Broncos in the picture for playoffs this season, Fred’s and Typhoon Saloon are packed to the brim every Sunday with fans enjoying the game alongside an ice cold brew or the restaurant-bars’ game day “tailgate special,” which includes a choice of barbequed meat and traditional tailgate sides like potato salad, macaroni and cheese or baked beans. And with nearly 40 TVs at Typhoon

and 20 more at Fred’s, those who want to simultaneously keep up with all the games at once have found their hotspot for game day. “We have a multitude of TVs on both sides, so we’re showing all the games in addition to the teams we support, so you can definitely follow your fantasy football teams,” said Dickert. “We’re about the next best thing to being at the stadium. We’ve just got great food, a great staff and with Typhoon being as big as it is, you’ll never have a problem finding a seat.” Coming up on Feb. 3, Typhoon will also play host to a Super Bowl XLVII bash in partnership with Vavi, a local sports club and social team. Details An inflatable sign points the way to NFL game-day action at Typhoon Saloon and Fred’s MexCourtesy photo about the event will be available at ican Café. Fred’s Mexican Café and Typhoon Saloon are located at 1165 Garnet Ave. For more information, visit or

One is a festive restaurant serving up some of the freshest Mexican fare this side of the border. The other is a casual nightclub featuring a cavernous interior with plenty of dancin’ room. Despite their differences, Fred’s Mexican Café and Typhoon Saloon act as a second home for a horde of devoted football enthusiasts on NFL game day. A healthy mix of orange-and-blueclad Denver Broncos fans fill up Fred’s Mexican Café — the portion of the establishment that faces the street corner — while a crowd of red-and-goldladen patrons cheer on the San Francisco 49ers in the spacious Typhoon Saloon, located in the back and western portion of the same building. “There are so many people that are not from San Diego that live here,” said Ryan Dickert, general manager of Fred’s and Typhoon Saloon. “We definitely support our teams. If you’re a fan of either team, this is your home.” What used to be a small 49ers contingent a few years ago has grown into a dedicated gathering of committed fans who line up outside Typhoon’s doors before game time every Sunday, Dickert said. “We started with the 49ers midway through the season back in 2008,” he said. “We had a small 49er crew of locals and a few employees that still kept coming in even though their team wasn’t doing so well. We started putting the sound on for their games and it just evolved into the beast that it is now.” Likewise, Fred’s is constantly packed with loyal Broncos followers on game day, a tradition that started just last season during the quarterback Tim Tebow craze and continues now with the San Francisco 49ers fans show their colors at Typhoon Saloon on Garnet Avenue.

Suggested headline: Get a Flu Shot – Not the Flu By David Sayen Now is the time to protect yourself against the flu by getting your flu vaccine early, before flu season hits full force. Medicare covers the flu vaccination, along with many other preventive-health services. People with Medicare can get the flu shot at no cost to them. There’s no coinsurance, copayment, or deductible. Keep in mind that the flu shot helps prevent the flu; it doesn’t give you the flu. Getting the vaccine is the best way to avoid getting sick this flu season. Also, by protecting yourself, you’re protecting those you care about from getting the flu from you. Who should get a flu shot? All adults, especially those 65 and older. People under 65 should get vaccinated if they have chronic illness, including heart disease, lung disease, diabetes, or End-Stage Renal Disease (permanent kidney failure). Here are some tips to follow during flu season: • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze – and throw the tissue in the trash after you use it. If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve or elbow, not your hands. • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcohol-based hand cleaners also work. • Don’t touch your eyes, nose, or mouth. Germs spread this way. • Try to avoid close contact with sick people. • Stay home if you’re sick. Wait at least 24 hours after you no longer have a fever (100° Fahrenheit or 37.8° Celsius) or signs of a fever without using a fever-reducing medicine. For more information, visit or call 1-800-MEDICARE You can also visit for specific information about the flu. More information is available at
