Rosecrans will gain precious new space Miramar annex to allow for new burials BY ANTHONY GENTILE | THE BEACON

Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery is getting some much-needed relief this fall. A 164-acre annex to the cemetery will open at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in September to allow nearly 160,000 new burials — something Fort Rosecrans has long run out of space to accommodate. “It’s going to be a great project,” said Kirk Leopard, director of Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery. “It’s going to provide burials for the next 50-60 years for the

San Diego area.” With Fort Rosecrans only accepting cremations currently, the opening of the Miramar annex will allow for casketed burials in San Diego for local veterans for the first time since 1966. The only option presently for casketed burials is at Riverside National Cemetery. “You don’t expect your 80-yearold grandmother to have to drive all the way up to Riverside just to visit a gravesite,” Leopard said.

City rides wave to be tsunami-ready BY ANTHONY GENTILE | THE BEACON

Forty-four tsunami evacuation route signs being installed in coastal areas around the county now point out which way to flee if a big wave hits. The signage is part of the city’s effort to become recognized as “tsunami-ready” by the National Weather Service. “We plan for all risks and all hazards and a tsunami is one of those,” said Donna Faller of the city’s Office of Homeland Security. “While pretty rare, San Diego is considered in a moderate tsuna-

mi (prone) area, so we plan for that.” Installation of the signs began last month and will wrap up midmonth. According to Faller, the signs were already purchased and the installation costs of $21,000 came from city’s 2008 general fund. “We purchased the signs, but we did not have the staffing at the time to do the outreach component,” Faller said. “We were able to move some of the ’08 monies over to the current year to pick up the cost of this current project.” Eleven of the signs are located

in Point Loma and Ocean Beach. Several signs are located on West Point Loma Boulevard and North Harbor Drive, and other signs are also located at 4995 Voltaire St., 5100 Brighton Ave., and 5085 Newport Ave. in the Sunset Cliffs area. While the direction of these signs may seem like common sense to locals, the signs are in place to raise awareness in case a tsunami strikes San Diego and to help visitors. “They serve those who are not familiar with the area.

Students get introduction to science, forensics BY ANTHONY GENTILE | THE BEACON

Eighth-graders at St. Charles Borromeo Academy got a taste of a CSI-style mock crime scene recently at their Point Loma campus. The students used different aspects of science to solve a whodunit involving the principal’s missing baseball hat. “It’s really a hot topic these days with [the television show] ‘CSI,’” said Peter Billings, who runs the St. Charles science program. “It’s not really part of the curriculum of middle school science but it’s a component to add to incorporate other science skills.” The class of nearly 20 eighth-grade students integrated forensics, entomology, microscope use Students at St. Charles Borromeo Academy got a taste and comparisons, and good detective skills during of a CSI-style mock crime scene as part of the school’s renewed scientific emphasis.

Medical pot regulatory rules rolled back to subcommittee BY ADRIANE TILLMAN | THE BEACON

City Council members appeared uncomfortable with the first round of recommendations to regulate dispensaries issued by the Medical Marijuana Task Force. City Council voted 7-1 to send the recommendations to subcommittee on Jan. 5. The Land Use & Housing Commission (LU&H) will discuss the recommendations at its March meeting, and the Community Planners Committee, which represents the planning groups in the city, will

also review the suggestions for feedback. Councilman Todd Gloria, who chairs LU&H, also requested input from city staff from the Department of Development Services, which handles permits, and from the mayor’s office. Over a series of four meetings, the task force outlined suggestions for hours of operation, permitted areas of location, distance requirements from one dispensary to another and permitting processes.

Midway District’s Pet Kingdom tantalizes the aquarium, reptile hobbyists BY NICOLE SOURS LARSON | THE BEACON

Step into Pet Kingdom, located at 3191 Sports Arena Blvd. in the Midway District, and you know you’ve stepped into another world. It’s not a zoo, it’s not a jungle, but there are hints of each as you find yourself surrounded by representations of plants, rocks and other natural elements plus cages, bowls and other paraphernalia designed to create a comfortable home or an appropriate environment for the exotic fish, reptiles, amphibians and even small furry animals offered for sale in the specialty shop which caters to committed hobbyists. One of the first things that strikes a visitor is the immaculate condition of the animal enclosures, whether for guinea pigs, tropical fish or sulcata tortoises, and how friendly, knowledgeable and informative the staff members are, answering questions as they continue to clean and scrub glass cases, aquaria and animal pens. Meesha, a 7-year-old vocal cat who came in once with kittens and stayed to become the store’s resident cat and mascot, pops out from behind a display, informing

her staff that it’s now time for dinner. While you will find for sale a selection of rats, mice, chinchillas, rabbits and even occasional kittens (all with their first round of shots, feline leukemia testing, flea treatment and a certificate for a free veterinary visit), you will also find a prominently posted statement warning parents about rabbit adoptions. “So your child wants a rabbit? Ask yourself these questions,” reads the posting, which also discourages rabbits as pets for children under age 8. “Our main focus here is in the animals. We want to make sure we’re providing healthy animals,” explains manager Ann Ancibor, who has worked at Pet Kingdom for 18 years and purchases the kittens and small animals only from local small hobbyist breeders with whom the store has had a relationship for many years. President Bill Bennett, who with his wife Diane has owned the shop since 1981, has twice enlarged the shop to spotlight more freshwater and saltwater fish, reptiles and amphibians. He notes that they’re located

between two big box pet stores, but by focusing on their niche market they’ve survived and mostly thrived. “We carry animals and products that are labor-intensive,” he says, noting that they require specialized knowledge and care. Some of his staff are themselves breeders of rare fish and reptiles that have been bred successfully in captivity nowhere else. “Keeping animals is an art and a science. You have to have people who are interested and knowledgeable about what they’re doing,” he says. When you have about 1,000 animals of so many species, he explains, you have to be cleaning constantly, as well as demonstrating how the animals should be set up and cared for at home. He and his staff also make a point of educating customers about animal care. If a customer wants to buy an animal but is not prepared to learn about it and put it in its correct environment, they have refused to sell the animal. “We want people to have a good experience with animals and stay in the hobby,” Bennett says. Pet Kingdom purchases some animals from customers. When people have to give up animals, in some cases the store will accept them as donations if they have room for them, especially fish or small snakes. They then provide them to teachers for their classrooms or to breeders for their breeding programs. Pet Kingdom also has a “full disclosure” policy of informing customers that a fish or reptile will become large and will require

larger accommodations. They do not sell Burmese pythons because they become too big and difficult to handle. They’ve seen a decline in sales of the number of fish that grow large, Bennett says. One of the most popular fish species now is the African cichlid, a colorful freshwater species that remains small. For a child or parent seeking a friendly pet that’s easy to care for

and will happily ride on a child’s shoulder, Bennett recommends a bearded dragon, which is mellow and likes people. Pet Kingdom offers school tours for teachers with groups of up to 25 or 30 students and will arrange for staff to escort children and explain the animals’ habitat and behavior.

more than 20 million visitors to our beaches every year and those people may not be familiar with where the higher ground is,” Faller said. The signs are one component of the city becoming tsunami-ready. Faller said the city has submitted its draft application to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Another component of the process is tsunami inundation maps, which the state unveiled for the entire coast of California on Dec. 17. The maps can be found at www.conservation.ca.gov. “It means that there’s a greater likelihood that the water could reach you up to a certain point,” said Yvette Urrea Moe, public information specialist with the county’s Office of Emergency Services. “We would recommend to those people living in those areas to know their way away from there.” Inundation areas in OB include Ocean Beach Park, where the maps show that heavy flooding could overtake Abbott Street and reach as far as Cable Street. In Point Loma, a tsunami could bring a significant amount of water to areas along the San Diego Bay, including Ballast Point, Shelter Island and Spanish Landing Park south of Harbor Drive. The county is educating San Diegans about tsunamis with videos and information on its website, www.readysandiego.org. A DVD about what to do is also making its way around to local schools. “It tells them what they can do to be safe and what some of the warning signs are,” Urrea Moe said. “Living in San Diego, we’ve never experienced a tsunami, and a lot of

people don’t really realize what they’re supposed to do.” Tsunamis are waves created by a quake or landslide in the ocean that last a longer period than usual, resulting in an abnormally large wave after reaching shore. Richard Seymour, a Scripps Institution of Oceanography research oceanographer, said the San Diego area has never seen damage from a tsunami. The last tsunami that caused damage in the state occurred in 1964 in Crescent City, near the California-Oregon border. As far as predicting a future tsunami, Seymour said there is not a mathematically or scientifically sound method. What is sound, he said, is predicting the results of a distant earthquake that could potentially produce a tsunami. “We can measure them with a pressure gauge that we have off Scripps Pier,” Seymour said. “We can go into our record from that pressure and actually see the tsunami — the very, very slow rise and fall of the sea level. I don’t think we’re going to be in the situation of the false alarm or false warning we were in for many years.” Even without a surefire way to forecast a tsunami, Seymour said one occurring in San Diego is highly unlikely. He said the most dangerous type of tsunami —– one that occurs very close to the shore as the result of a landslide — is not likely to happen given the makeup of the seafloor off local coasts. “Based upon the local geometry of the seafloor, which doesn’t tend to magnify the effect of tsunami waves, the chances of our having anything destructive are extremely small,” Seymour said. But in the event that one does happen, the city is taking steps toward being prepared.

New book gives kids insight into airport, endangered species and habitats BY SEBASTIAN RUIZ | THE BEACON

San Diego International Airport employees are educating youngsters about the endangered California least tern through the magic of a childrens’ book. The terns nest on airport grounds during the spring, and environmental laws require the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority to mitigate environmental impacts — including protection of the birds’ habitat. Author Judy McSweeney and illustrator Sharon Gonzales tell the story of a curious least tern named Laverne and her newfound friend, Jet, a beagle-type dog, in the artful pulp “Laverne, The Runway Stowaway.”

the weeklong exercise. When the exercise kicked off Dec. 14, the pupils were parading around with detective badges, gloves and booties, collecting evidence from

The creators of the book are parents themselves and also work in the aviation education department of the San Diego International Airport. They want to take their message of education and conservation to the hearts and minds of children. “All the things we do at the airport is all about our customers, but in this case one of our customers happens to be a bird, and we try to be a good neighbor,” said McSweeney. “Plus, we’re just big little kids ourselves, so it was fun.” Gonzales penciled the artwork for the book, bringing the story of Laverne, Jet and a group of children called the Airport Explorers to life.

The graphic artist said the story provides an opportunity to learn about different elements of Lindbergh Field. “It’s not only educating children … about the least tern, but also about sections of the airport itself,” Gonzales said. Teachers can also use the book and downloadable curricula to use in the classroom. The curricula is scheduled to launch in the spring. The airport’s Environmental Affairs Department (EAD) also supported some of the research into the nesting habits of the endangered least tern. Estimates put the birds’ population at about 6,000 with about 130 nests around airport grounds dur-

ing the spring mating season, according Richard Gilb, manager of EAD. Gilb said scientists think the birds like to nest near the airport because it’s close to San Diego Bay, which provides a constant supply of small fish the bird likes to eat. The noise generated from airport operations may also help keep predators, like rodents, away. The flat terrain of rock and sand mimics the birds’ natural, beachlike habitat. The Airport Authority’s EAD works to protect the birds by setting up barriers and small fences to keep the chicks from running onto the runway and into harm’s way.

“It seems like beach to them so they sort of came in and set up shop,” Gilb said. “Birds and airports typically don’t mix.” Usually, birds near an airport spell disaster for flights because large birds and flocks can create multiple flight hazards. But because the California least tern is small and doesn’t flock in large numbers, the danger they represent is low, Gilb said. The endangered bird can grow to have a foot-long wingspan and weigh about 1.6 ounces, he added. While the birds may not pose a serious hazard to flights, a big, dangerous airport can certainly frighten an innocent tern. Just ask Laverne, the runway stowaway.

the school office. “The main goal is to introduce science and make science fun and hands-on, dealing with forensics and [things they see on] TV every day,” Billings said. St. Charles’ faculty also got in on the act. Principal Thomas Mamara’s office was the main scene of

the crime. More than 30 pieces of evidence ranging from hair to fingerprints were scattered about his office. Other faculty members provided clothing samples that the students matched with control samples to get to the bottom of the mystery. “It’s a really good hands-on sci-

ence project that involves the whole school and uses lots of different science branches,” Billings said. After collecting evidence on the first day, the science class spent the rest of the week analyzing it. Students had to distinguish between animal and human hair

under a microscope, measure pH levels in soil and analyze fiber samples. “We’ll see how it goes and then add to it to increase the complexity,” Billings said. Billings took over the science program at St. Charles two years ago. Since arriving at the school, he is credited with making a significant impact on its science curriculum. “They really didn’t have a science program here before,” Billings said. “My job is to build it up and make it something to stand out in the community.” St. Charles Borromeo Academy is located at 2808 Cadiz St. in Point Loma.

As for Fort Rosecrans itself, the opening of the Miramar annex does not mean the acceptance of future ashes will stop soon in Point Loma. Leopard said he expects the national cemetery, which just exceeded 100,000 graves last month, will still have room for ashes until 2017 or 2018. “We’re still going to operate Fort Rosecrans. It’s not going to close,” Leopard said. Leopard said a 4,200-column niche expansion project will begin at the cemetery next month. Two other expansion projects have been approved and a third is pending approval. “Point Loma and Fort Rosecrans is a very popular location for people,” Leopard said. “It’s really a part of the community.” The cemetery was also just approved for a second raise and realignment project, the last of two projects to primp the grounds.

Faulconer expressed concerns about the task force’s recommendation that dispensaries be permitted through Process 2 and 3, wherein city staff decide on whether the dispensary can open. In those processes, the public is notified and can appeal the staff decision to the Planning Commission. “The Pacific Beach and Ocean Beach planning boards supported some of the recommendations but wanted to change the process level,” Faulconer said. “Ocean Beach suggested Process 4.” Under a Process 4 permit, the decision to open a dispensary can be appealed before City Council. District 5 Councilman Carl DeMaio voted against sending the task force recommendations to subcommittee because he believes the process itself enables more dispensaries to open. “While some say this tightens regulations on medical marijuana, I say the opposite,” DeMaio said. “I believe it gives license; it waters down regulation; and it

OPINION

THURSDAY · JANUARY 14, 2010 THE PENINSULA BEACON

District 2 City Councilmember Kevin Faulconer, at podium, flanked by Mayor Jerry Sanders, left, unveiled a proposal last month to use existing SDG&E fuel lines to transport excess methane gas from the city’s wastewater facility instead of trucking the volatile gas through Peninsula neighborhood streets.

COUNCIL CORNER

Methane fuel lines win out over trucking By City Councilmember KEVIN FAULCONER Some of the best environmental news in San Diego last year surfaced a few weeks ago in Point Loma. On Dec. 15, I had the honor of announcing a groundbreaking environmental project that will use existing SDG&E fuel lines to transport excess methane gas from the city’s Wastewater Treatment Plant. The gas will be recycled and used as renewable electricity. This first-of-its-kind project is expected to eliminate the release of 1.1 million cubic feet of global warming gases each day from the treatment plant, and generate a small amount of revenue for the City. The original plan called for using trucks to haul compressed natural gas — 85 percent methane and 15 percent carbon dioxide — from the plant to two local sites. Many of you contacted me to share your concerns about trucking methane through our neighborhoods. I shared those concerns and together we came up with a safer alternative and a better plan. The collaboration and the results reaffirmed my belief that government of the people, by the people and for the people has not perished. I owe a special thanks to Point Loma residents John Pederson and Jim Gilhooly, who were among the driving forces behind the new plan. Mr. Pederson heads the group Citizens for a Green and Safe Point Loma, which had this to say about the new plan: “Point Loma residents are very pleased with the revised

outcome for the handling and distribution of excess methane gas from the Point Loma Wastewater Treatment Facility. Utilizing the existing SDG&E pipeline to transport the gas instead of trucking through our residential neighborhoods is a practical, green and safe solution. We are grateful for all the community support. This new solution gives us hope and reaffirms the notion that we can make a difference in our community when residents become involved along with our elected officials.” On Dec. 8, the San Diego City Council voted unanimously to amend a contract between the City and BioFuels Energy LLC that calls for recycling methane gas from the city’s Wastewater Treatment Plant. The contract had been in place for a while. What changed is how the gas will be transferred once the project begins in 2011. A Dec. 19 editorial in The San Diego Union-Tribune put it this way: “This project is a win for the city, a win for BioFuels and SDG&E and a win for the environment. We applaud it.” I applaud the Point Loma community for rallying behind this improved plan. It proves that together we can accomplish great things for our neighborhoods. — Kevin Faulconer sits on the San Diego City Council as the representative for District 2, which includes Point Loma, Ocean Beach and Mission Beach.

The downtown stadium — a smaller option I applaud our civic leaders and the Chargers for huddling on a new downtown stadium. But I wonder if we’re discussing the right stadium. Under consideration is a 62,000-seat stadium (expandable to 72,000 seats), footballoriented structure, able to hold its own nationally against other football venues, and, more or less, it will do what Qualcomm Stadium does today. At the expanded 72,000-seat size, San Diego will once again be considered for future Super Bowls. But the size of that proposed stadium comes with its own limitations. As Major League Baseball apparently believes, some sports don’t do as well in large stadiums. Major League Soccer seems to have embraced the same conclusion: their recent stadiums are built to house crowds of 25,000 or so. We may be envisioning the wrong stadium; maybe less is more. Let’s diagram another play. What if we build a 40,000-seat stadium downtown? Granted, this would leave the Chargers out of the downtown equation. However, the possible uses of this smaller stadium are more intriguing. A 40,000-seat venue could actually revive San Diego State University’s football program — 30,000 fans wouldn’t feel lost in a cavernous, halfempty stadium, and that dynamic alone might sustain larger crowds.

30,000 spectators would feel like a successful level of attendance. The downtown location is closer to South Bay and to Tijuana. So we could attract more international soccer matches — a natural fit for our demographics and a strong move toward a growing sport of the future. A leaner stadium could be home to both a Mexican soccer league team and an MLS team. It would give events like the Rugby Sevens (taken from us by Las Vegas) a downtown, properlyscaled location. It could hold concerts and serve as an adjunct to the Convention Center. And it could be the home venue for the Poinsettia Bowl. By my count, the sports alone would provide more than 50 events a year — a boost to downtown by providing a year-round calendar of sports seasons and other events. A 40,000-seat stadium was just built in Kaohsuing, Taiwan. The stadium includes a track — were we to add a track to a downtown stadium, we could also host NCAA and world-class track events (these events fill stadiums throughout the world, particularly during the lead-up to the Summer Olympics).

$1 billion. Stanford University claimed to build its 50,000-seat stadium (which, by the way, may also have been built in order to attract international-level soccer matches) for a mere $100 million; at even twice that, it seems a bargain in comparison. The 27,000-seat Home Depot Center in Carson, California, which is home to two MLS teams, cost $150 million to build. Traffic and parking needs likewise would be scaled-down. And the benefits would be year-round, not just during the fall. So where do the Chargers go from here? North, to Escondido. That city boasts a strategy for assembling the necessary land and possibly a viable financial plan. And while we Chargers fans may not like the extra 30 minutes up the freeway, it’s only 10 times a year. And what if we lose the Chargers altogether? The media rumors are that Buffalo and Jacksonville are looking to relocate. In contrast, were San Diego State to fold its football program — and the size of Qualcomm is more of a detriment than a benefit — that likely would be the end of Division IBCS football in San Diego. College programs don’t seem to come back. San Diego wants to be a world-class city. I’m trying to do my part by tossing a new idea into the mix. Others get to carry the ball from here. Whitney M.

When the Point Loma Nazarene University (PLNU) Sea Lions men’s basketball squad entered the 200910 season, head coach Ethan Hamilton realized it would be somewhat of a rebuilding year in the highly competitive Golden State Athletic Conference (GSAC). “It has been an interesting year so far and what I have discovered is that we are even younger and don’t have as much depth as I thought, but these are a great group of guys,” Hamilton said. Hamilton did not count on injuries to four of his players either, including sophomore Greg Murray, Hamilton’s top scorer after 7 games. Murray had averaged 15.4 points per game, a 33.3 three-point percentage, a 66.7 free-throw percentage and 3.3 rebounds per game. Murray expects to be out for the next six weeks, which would most likely keep him out for the remainder of the year — with an outside chance at returning if the Sea Lions make a deep run into the postseason. Murray is expected to make a full recovery by fall. Rhett Beal and Nate Van Wheelden are two other sophomores who have also contributed and helped fill the void caused by Murray’s injury. Beal has averaged 13.2 points per game, a 78.3 freethrow percentage, a 27.3 three-

point percentage and 7.2 rebounds per game. Van Wheelden has averaged 10.9 points per game with a 60.5 free-throw percentage, a 32.7 three-point percentage and 3.8 rebounds per game. Point Loma entered this season with an extremely young and inexperienced roster, which includes only three juniors, seven sophomores and two freshmen. The Sea Lions’ overall record is 5-9 with a 24 record in the GSAC. But Hamilton said that does not reflect the competitiveness of the young Sea Lions. “We have done some really good things so far,” Hamilton said. “The guys have bought into what we are trying to do and everyone is staying together.” Hamilton expects his young rosSEE PLNU, Page 12

Students at Point Loma High School (PLHS) have, for decades, built body strength by “pumping iron” in the school weight room. Recently, though, that activity has become more like “pumping rust.” In a community that prides itself on excellent school programs and facilities for its children, the school’s demolished weight facilities and rusting outdoor weight equipment appear to be a glaring exception. But hope is being rejuvenated. Those facilities will now be replaced, in part, with the help of a $90,000 grant from the Jimmy Johnson Foundation and commitment of some dedicated Point Loma High parents and students. Once housed in two portable classrooms just west of the campus stadium, the weight room was a regular component of every PLHS student’s physical education activity. Classes rotated through the two structures, learning proper techniques while increasing muscle tone in their growing bodies. For the school’s athletes, the facility became a second home, a place to gather and push themselves beyond previous limits. Often bathed in perspiration and straining to summon every ounce of their strength, these teens prepared themselves to compete for team positions and battle their opponents on turf, hardwood, in the ocean or a pool. Problems began when the two portable classrooms were condemned by inspectors and demolition was ordered. PLHS staff

members saw only one place available to house the shiny chrome machines and iron plates, but they knew it was a terrible alternative. The weight equipment has been moved to a chain-link-fenced batting cage near the site of the condemned portables. And so, the expensive equipment sits, being slowly exposed to the sun’s destructive rays, the night’s dew, salty air and occasional rains. Rust covers much of the metal and padded seats have now been completely destroyed by the elements. When San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) officials polled each of its school sites to find what was needed at individual campuses, the weight room dilemma at Point Loma High was brought up.

But so were other pressing issues at PLHS, such as aging plumbing and electrical systems, the need for increased technology in classrooms and other issues. SDUSD has allotted funding from the $2.1 billion voterapproved Proposition S, in part, to replace the PLHS weight room —- but not for another five years. PLHS parent Lisa Tumbiolo decided to take matters into her own hands. Tumbiolo learned of grant money made available to local schools from wildly popular NASCAR champion Jimmy Johnson, who attended schools in El Cajon. He founded the Jimmy Johnson Foundation in 2006, partnering with Lowe’s Toolbox SEE GRANT, Page 12

Banjo artist Dahill shows age is no limit to musical prowess said. “But it’s also about my views on things, such as the bill of rights and the encroachment on it in recent years. However, my first songs were about body surfing.” Dahill acknowledges that age 35 is a little late in the game to start in music. “I go to shows and guys have been singing for 20 years and I’ve been singing for, like, one,” Dahill joked. “Sometimes I’m not as good a singer as I’d like to be or will be, but my favorite singers have a little bit of roughness to their voice, so I figure that’s okay.” Dahill plans to record an album this spring. Having gotten so much enjoyment from his new music career,

BY BART MENDOZA | THE BEACON

Though there has been much for musicians to complain about regarding the current state of the music business, one major new development partially makes up for the negative. Chock it up to first- and second-generation rockers hitting elderly status in recent years, but it’s now considered status quo for older musicians in all genres to be on stage. Indeed, San Diego is seeing a major trend in late-blooming artists like banjo player Tommy Dahill, who performs at Winston’s tonight, Jan. 14. Born in Key West, Fla. in 1965, Dahill initially bought a guitar as a 17-year-old Led Zeppelin fan, although he didn’t actually start playing music until he was 35. “I was watching George Thorogood and thought, ‘I can do that,’” said Dayhill. He began teaching himself chords the next day, eventually taking lessons from acclaimed blues player Robin Henkel. His switch to banjo a year and a half ago was initially for practical reasons. “I hurt my hand and I couldn’t bar a guitar chord,” Dahill said. “I had a banjo lying around and started playing that.” Inspired by Barney McKenna, a Celtic music legend and banjo player for the Dubliners, Dahill shifted musical gears, though staying with Delta blues as a focus. “If I don’t start the day with playing a little bit in the morning, I feel like I’m mute,” Dahill said, “which is not real cool for your neighbors

Dahill occasionally regrets not having started earlier — but only a little. “I think all the stuff that goes with being a young musician would have killed me,” Dahill said. “But in a way, I’m kind of glad I didn’t pursue music earlier. Starting later, I’ve had the presence of mind not to imitate other people. If I had hit it when I was in high school, I might have been just some other guy who sounds like Jimmy Page — or who tries to.” Tommy Dahill appears at Winston’s, 1921 Bacon St., tonight, Jan. 14 at 6 p.m. There is no cover charge.

when you’re a banjo player.” He jokingly dubs his sound as “browngrass” music. “Just about everyone that picks up the banjo tries to sound like Earl Scruggs playing bluegrass,” Dahill said. “The name is a statement that I’m not trying to be another bluegrass guy who imitates Scruggs. I wanted to create my own sound. Besides, there is no bluegrass in California. It’s all brown grass.” Now a mainstay of the local acoustic scene, Dahill generally performs solo, though he occasion-

ally joins Americana combo Folding Mr. Lincoln on stage. He said bringing a banjo into a sea of guitars elicits a good response from audiences. “Most people get a grin on their face as soon as they see it,” Dahill said. Though he covers a range of material from Robert Johnson to the Dubliners, his focus is squarely on original material. Uniquely for area banjo players, among the more typical songs he plays are those that deal with political topics. “It is all about my life,” Dahill

mozana rocks: Black Tourmaline!

San Diego’s “Lucky” Native Buried deep within the layer of pegmatite that runs between the giant granite boulder mountains north of Pala Indian Reservation, long crystal schorls of black tourmaline point the way to treasure chests of gem grade jewels. Jeff Swanger, the owner of our only local full time operational gem mine, Oceanview Mine, took me on a tour of San Diego’s local treasures. Afterward I screened my way through hundreds of pounds of trailings from the guts of the mine and came away with some stunning pieces of black tourmaline in a matrix of feldspar (the primary ingredient in ceramic porcelain) and shiny mica. Black tourmaline is mined primarily in Brazil, Africa, Afghanistan and San Diego! The big recommendation lately is to place pieces of black tourmaline around your laptop to help pull the magnetic energy away from your body. The same is said about wearing black tourmaline wristbands to pull negative effects from cell phone use away from your head. After some research, I found that black tourmaline is indeed blessed with geological properties that back up these claims. When rubbed or heated, black tourmaline becomes magnetic. It is traditionally thought to be one of the happiest and luckiest of all the gemstones and gifts of black tourmaline and silver bring excellent luck to both giver and receiver. It is the gemstone of Sagittarius and as a healing stone, it governs the intestinal track. Everyone seems to respond differently to this magical magnetic stone.

SPORTS JUMPS

THURSDAY · JANUARY 14, 2010 THE PENINSULA BEACON

CHARGERS CONTINUED FROM Page 5

169 yards and two touchdowns on 36 carries against the Bengals. The Chargers defense has struggled against the run this year, allowing 117.8 rushing yards per game. The Jets will run to take pressure off rookie quarterback Mark

Sanchez, who has been at his best this season when not tasked with making big plays. Sanchez played an effective game against Cincinnati (12-for-15, 182 yards, 1 TD) but his 20 interceptions this season suggest that a big play could be out there for Antonio Cromartie or Quentin Jammer if Sanchez is pressured Sunday. The first score will be especially

important in Sunday’s game. If the Chargers can get out to an early lead, it will force the mistake-prone Sanchez and the Jets out of their comfort zone. But if the game is close or the Jets have an early advantage, it could be a low-scoring slugfest that stats suggest would not favor the Chargers. Chargers fans are hoping Sunday’s game does not turn out like

the 2004 Wild Card meeting between the two teams. The Jets came into Qualcomm Stadium and knocked off the Bolts 20-17 in overtime in the only previous playoff game between the old AFL clubs. The winner of the Chargers-Jets game will face the winner of Saturday’s game between the Indianapolis Colts (14-2) and the Balti-

more Ravens (9-7) in the AFC Championship Game on Jan. 24. In the NFC, New Orleans (13-3) hosts Arizona (11-6) on Saturday and Minnesota (12-4) hosts Dallas (12-5) on Sunday. The Super Bowl will be held Feb. 7 in Miami. All-time series: Chargers lead 19-12-1 Last meeting: 2008 in San Diego, Chargers won 48-29 Prediction: Chargers 27, Jets 14

for Education to help cashstrapped schools. Learning of the deteriorating weight room, Tumbiolo worked with fellow parent Ron Gemmill, who works in construction, to assess the situation. A cost of about $185,000 was estimated to put the weights back into a permanent, secure facility for student use. Supporting the grant prepared by Tumbiolo and Gemmill, PLHS senior class president Josh Morse created a video documenting the deterioration of the machinery and loss of student use. When the winning grants were announced by Johnson in a ceremony recently at El Cajon’s Crest Elementary School, the PLHS project had clearly grabbed his attention. Johnson, who personally reviews all requests, awarded PLHS $90,000 toward the project cost. Johnson’s racing cars carry the logo of Lowe’s home improvement stores, and during a “Homecoming Rally” held at the company’s Santee location, the PLHS grant was the only one featured before local news media. It is anticipated that Lowe’s will take an active role in the design and construction phases of the project. “This is yet another example of the outstanding parents we have at PLHS,” said athletic director John Murphy. “Both Lisa Tumbiolo and Ron Gemmill deserve recognition for their excellent work on this much-needed project.” Next up for PLHS staff and administrators is asking that funds that have been allocated for the weight room five years in the future be released now, allowing the project to move forward and minimizing further rust damage in the near term. “We have scheduled meetings with the Prop. S people,” said PLHS Principal Bobbie Samilson. “We’re very optimistic that the needed funding can be obtained.” Murphy expressed hope that construction of the weight room can begin before the end of this school year in June. This year’s Johnson Foundation grants totaled $500,000 to 11 local schools.

ter to be improved in the second swing of conference play as the season progresses. In four of the five wins so far, the Sea Lions have won by an average of almost 20 points and have only lost by two points in three of the nine defeats. Despite the struggles of this year, Hamilton said he is encouraged by what he sees as a bright future, with many of his young players getting valuable experience this season in preparation for the next few years.

K9 PHYSICAL THERAPY/REHAB CUTTING EDGE K9 REHAB http://www.cutting edgek9.com Cutting Edge K9 Rehab Has Been Featured On Local And National News, Radio And A Number Of Local Papers And Magazine Articles. Swimming is one of our strongest recommendations for most K9’s. It is an ideal form of exercise for a number of reasons. Our rehab services offer assisted swimming in a warm water environment. The benefits are: • Non-weight-bearing (reducing stress on joints) • Facilitates full use of the front and hind legs vs. partial use as seen with underwater treadmills • Dogs are often able to actively swim although unable to move their legs on land (due to stroke/spinal injury) • Allows manual techniques by therapist/ manual resistance to an affected limb • Swimming in a controlled environment is the safest way for clients to exercise. • Speeds recovery following injury/surgery • Improves function and quality of life • Works reciprocal muscle groups throughout the session (helps correct muscle imbalances) • Reduces pain and inflammation • Reduces canine obesity thus decreasing the risk of other health-related problems • Increases strength, range of motion (ROM) and cardiovascular conditioning • Prevents overheating through proper water temperature • Increases tolerance for extended cardiovascular training • Decreases recovery time • Reduces postexercise soreness • Provides good cross training for the competitive, athletic dog (619) 227-7802
