Zimmerman snapshot: San Diego’s first woman police chief takes helm BY DAVE SCHWAB | THE BEACON Shelley Zimmerman, San Diego’s 34th police chief and the first woman ever to helm the department, said she never considered she’d one day command it. “When I graduated from the police academy in 1982, my goal wasn’t to be chief of police,” she said. “My goal was to do the very best job at whatever assignment I had.” An Ohio native from Cleveland and an Ohio State University alum whose father was a World War II combat veteran and a trial attorney, Zimmerman first came to California to the Rose Bowl to see her beloved Buckeyes play. Afterward, she visited San Diego, which proved to be life changing. “I came down to the zoo and immediately fell in love with the beauty of the city,” Zimmerman said. “I’d shoveled my last driveway.” After breaking her parents’ hearts AFTER THE STORM The weekend storm that weather forecasters predicted wouild be wild and wooly to quench Southern California’s drought conditons didn’t quite materialize. Still, plenty of rain did fall and locals were whipped with serious wind gusts.

PLHS girls seize first CIF championship in 23 years BY SCOTT HOPKINS | THE BEACON Lady Pointer basketball player Morgan Maclean knew her team could end Point Loma High’s 23-year drought since its last CIF championship, and she was determined to make that a reality last Friday morning. And so, when her sixth-seeded Pointers entered the fourth quarter of their title match down 24-22 against fifth-seed Hoover at Jenny Craig Pavilion on the USD campus, the 6’ 0” junior took charge. Over the final eight minutes, Maclean scored 15 of her game-high 22 points, including a stunning 8 of 8 from the free throw line, part of a 15-4 Pointer scoring run that propelled them to a 43-36 comefrom-behind win over a tough Cardinal Members of the CIF champion Lady Pointers gather to celebrate their 43-36 victory over squad for the Div.

Claudia Jack claims honor as Irish Woman of the Year BY DAVE SCHWAB | THE BEACON One of Ocean Beach’s own, Claudia Jack, associate director of OB MainStreet Association, has been named 2014 Irish Woman of the Year. Jack is a board member of the Irish Congress of Southern California, Inc., a nonprofit promoting appreciation of Irish culture, which annually plans and implements the St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Irish Festival in Balboa Park. “You ride in the parade and represent the Irish Congress, mostly at events in Balboa Park, throughout the year,” said Jack of her role as Irish Woman of the year. As an annual St. Pat’s parade volunteer, Jack said her job involves “doing all the logistics, including the setup and teardown.” Jack handles the arrangements for all the parade facilities, everything from the stages and fencing to the
porta-potties. That task requires her to interface with the city administration, the fire marshal, the Park and Rec Department, the police, EMTs and the ABC, state Department of Alcohol and Beverage Control. A key part of her job doing parade logistics involves keeping costs to a minimum. She said she does that by paying attention to detail, and by encouraging her colleagues to followthrough on all of their job functions. Of her designation as Irish Woman of the Year, Jack said “it’s a real honor.” The 34th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Festival with the theme “Celebrating People in Public Service,” will be held Saturday, March 15. The free event, held from 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., will feature more than 100 entries including marching bands, equestrians, police and fire units, equestrians, Irish dancers and plenty SEE AWARD, Page 7
NEWS Council fine-tunes city’s operating rules for food trucks 2
THURSDAY · MARCH 13, 2014
THE PENINSULA BEACON
BY DAVE SCHWAB | THE BEACON San Diego City Council unanimously passed new rules for increasingly popular mobile food trucks citywide which allows them to operate on public streets and in commercial areas, but restricts their latenight operating hours while requiring them to be at least 300 feet from residences. Food trucks will only be allowed to operate between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Mobile trucks can now be operated without a permit in industrial, commercial and high-density residential areas. They will largely be prohibited however, except for special events, in low-density neighborhoods and in the restaurantdense Gaslamp Quarter and Little Italy. Food trucks will also be allowed only by special permit on streets in parking overlay zones near the beachfront and close to universities. New rules also prohibit truck operators from having amplified music or selling alcohol, and to police themselves by collecting litter within a 25-foot radius before moving on. Trucks will be precluded from impair-
ing pedestrian or vehicular traffic. They also will be allowed on private property with a permit costing between $491 and $931. Trucks must also have a city phone number posted on them so violations of operating conditions can be reported. “If you read the ordinance, only 5 percent of the city will not be open to food trucks, and even in those areas they will be allowed by special-event permit,” said District 3 Councilman Todd Gloria, who noted that presently “laws do not allow for food trucks on private property.” “We’re trying to change that,” said Gloria about existing truck regulations adding, “These rules are fair.” Noting there’s room for “both brickand-mortar and mobile food trucks to be successful,” District 6 Councilmember Lori Zapf expressed concern about truck operations impacting residents. She made the successful motion that trucks be required to be at least 300 feet from dwellings. Public testimony largely was in favor of proposed amendments to the city’s municipal codes and the need to clarify food truck operating conditions. A couple of downtown food-cart operators complained that new regulations were giving mobile truck operators an

unfair competitive advantage, and that the cost for permits on private property was excessive. Denny Knox, executive director of the Ocean Beach MainStreet Association, a business improvement district (BID) representing the restaurant-rich Ocean Beach community, said she was confused about the new truck ordinance and uncertain of its consequences. “There are so many parts to this, I don’t know whether to support it or be opposed,” testified Knox. “We’re worried
about the economic impacts to parts of the city, like ours, where 40-some percent of employees work in restaurants.” Another Obecean, Dave Martin, president of Ocean Beach Town Council, said the “parking impact overlay zone protects us.” Martin said beach residents just want to make sure that “we’re on a fair playing field” with the new truck regulations After the March 3 hearing, Chris Olson, a Pacific Beach Planning Group member, said food trucks provide a com-
munity service. “I love the food trucks at the Saturday Seaside Farmers Market at Mission Bay High School,” Olson said. “This is a “win, win, win. They do not impact local restaurants, a portion of the proceeds go to our local schools and I get a great Saturday lunch during my bay-loop bike ride.” The City Council also voted to review the changes to the ordinance in one year to assess their impacts and effectiveness.

THURSDAY · MARCH 13, 2014 THE PENINSULA BEACON
Seals win key victory in long-running saga with humans Harbor seals got a flipper version of a thumbs-up in the seesaw battle over shared use at La Jolla’s Children’s Pool after the San Diego City Council voted 6-3 to close the beach to human contact during the marine mammals’ five-month pupping season. District 1 City Councilwoman Sherri Lightner, who represents La Jolla, along with Mark Kersey of District 5 and Scott Sherman of District 7, cast dissenting votes. The pro-pinniped vote came after Lightner’s motion to oppose city staff ’s recommendation to approve Children’s Pool seasonal beach closure from Dec. 15 to May 15 was defeated 6-3. The Feb. 24 vote came after three hours of public testimony in the decade-long battle over co-existence of the two species at the crescentshaped pool. The Children’s Pool was created in the 1930s by La Jolla philanthropist Ellen Browning as a safe wading area for children and ocean recreationalists. Beach-access proponents argued before the City Council that the seasonal beach closure was both unnecessary and unwarranted. Seal enthusiasts countered seasonal closure was essential to protecting seal mothers and pups. Their argument was bolstered by numerous videos depicting seal harassment by humans. Citing her “20-year record of com-
munity activism” and “passion for supporting neighborhoods,” Lightner said she’s “never been supportive of a seasonal beach closure.” She said a year-round rope barrier and ranger are in place at the pool to keep the peace between humans and pinnipeds. “There are better ways to balance the needs of humans and marine mammals,” Lightner said adding she couldn’t believe the Scripps’ trust creating the pool could actually be interpreted to “eliminate physical access to the beach.” Lightner argued that appropriate studies have not been done to assess the impacts of a seasonal beach closure on the surrounding marine ecosystems. “I’m concerned that we’re drawing a line in the sand that we do not need,” Lightner said, adding she felt the beach closure would “set a chilling precedent that public, physical access to the beach provided for in the Coastal Act is not guaranteed.” Lightner described the seasonal clo-
sure of the Children’s Pool as “regulatory overkill.” District 9 City Councilwoman Marti Emerald disagreed with Lightner’s perspective. “Just because a very generous member of the community more than 80 years ago donated this pool doesn’t mean we have to continue along that vein as times and circumstances change,” Emerald said. “It’s also become abundantly clear that this tiny piece of beach with its harbor seals has become a regional and national treasure, as well as having gained international recognition.” “We should have reverance and respect for wildlife,” noted Emerald pointing out that isn’t in evidence “from the reports we’re seeing about abuse of the environment and overfishing.” Pointing out “many people will never have the opportunity to see the miracle of birth in nature,” Emerald made her countermotion to approve the seasonal closure of the Children’s Pool to protect the seal rookery.
Several La Jollans spoke against the seasonal beach closure. “Seals are not an endangered species. Their population is exploding,” testified Phyllis Minnick, adding “harrassment is a myth.” Others agreed. “As a result of human activities, the balance of nature has been changed,” argued La Jollan Mike Costello, a scientist. “It’s not nice to fool Mother Nature.” Costello is an advocate of doing a comprehensive management study to figure out best practices for dealing with pinnipeds. Ken Hunrichs, president of Friends of the Children’s Pool advocating beach access for people, said seasonal closure would have the net effect of “criminalizing beach use.” San Diego Fire-Rescue Department lifeguard Ed Harris, who has presented an alternative plan to beach closure which envisions using faux boulders, which can be moved to encourage use of the beach by either species, chided the city for not being

open-minded, warning, “You’re really setting this up for litigation if you go through with this plan.” Seal enthusiasts sporting name tags saying “beach for seals” defended the seasonal pool closure. “It isn’t safe for baby seals to share the beach with people,” said Ellen Shively, speaking for the Seal Conservancy of San Diego. “Sharing the beach during pupping season does not work.” Shively showed video footage depicting people prompting seals as a group to flush into the ocean, as well children touching seals, “as if this were a petting zoo.” Attorney and animal-rights activist Bryan Pease claimed the majority of San Diegans favor greater protection for seals during their pupping season. “This is the final step in a management plan voted on in 2010,” Pease said. “Harassment has been ongoing.” Others agreed. “You are the last defense for the seals. The buck should stop with your vote today,” said Carolyn Price.

David or Goliath? Who really has your community’s best interest at heart? There’s a battle for freedom and independence going on. But this time, it isn’t a British invasion. It’s real-estate baron “Papa” Doug Manchester, the owner/publisher of the U-T San Diego. Manchester has embarked on a grand plan to bolster his flagging metropolitan daily’s readership by gobbling up local, independent publications. Is it “Papa” Doug’s intent to improve the local print product? Or are his acquisitions a thinly veiled attempt to buy out his competition so he can claim circulation increases and enhanced market penetration? What does this consolidation bode for the future of San Diego’s independent newspaper voices and our local readers who hunger for community news and insight about our neighbors and families? Is this a positive change benefiting the print newspaper industry as a whole or a harbinger of “land grabs” yet to come? Examine the track record. A case in point is the sale of the North County Times, which “Papa” Doug purchased in September 2012, claiming he would maintain the publication’s integrity and independence. The end result: one-third of the Times’ staff was subsequently laid off. Ultimately, the print edition of the
North CountyTimes was folded into the U-T. Barely six months after the Times’ acquisition by Manchester, the supposedly independent U-T North County Times name was dropped all together and a U-T North County Edition was produced, essentially wiping out community autonomy. These are disturbing times in the local journalism industry, said Julie Main, publisher of the San Diego Community Newspaper Group, which publishes The Peninsula Beacon, covering Point Loma and Ocean Beach; Beach & Bay Press, covering Mission Beach, Pacific Beach and Mission Bay; and La Jolla Village News, which serves La Jolla, University City and the Golden Triangle area. “The media industry has changed drastically over the last 30 years,” said Main. “Dailies failed to heed the warning signs from competition. Little by little, they lost insert business to direct mail. Shopper-type publications and local community weeklies gained momentum through direct delivery and market saturation, luring retail-advertising business away from the dwindling subscription numbers of the dailies. “More recently, Craigslist devastated classified revenues,” she said. “Plus, countless print, online, TV and radio outlets have vied for regional ad dollars. It does not come as a surprise
that the U-T would try its hand in gaining back market share by buying out the competition as they did in North County, and now through the Main Street Media acquisition (the La Jolla Light and sister publications). We will continue to do business as usual, providing our readers with an independent voice. We will continue to publish fair and balanced local news coverage to these neighborhoods in print and online, as we’ve always done. We have a solid reputation for providing businesses with cost-effective advertising solutions that work. It’s a natural win-win.” Noting the U-T “has deeper pockets than any of us,” Jim Kydd, publisher of Coast News and Rancho Santa Fe News, emphasized these are, indeed, uncertain times for print journalism as a whole. “We’re going to keep doing what we’ve been doing for 28 years. We’re still here, stronger than ever, with a very good reputation.” Perhaps more readers should begin asking the question: Will “Papa” Doug Manchester save San Diego’s independent print media or plunder and profit from them, ultimately absorbing and digesting them? Stay tuned.

NEWS ZIMMERMAN CONTINUED FROM Page 1
said adding “it’s a privilege to wear this uniform and badge.” Once in San Diego, Zimmerman still thought she’d follow in her father’s footsteps and enroll in law school. But she ended up choosing a different path. “I’d helped put myself through Ohio State and I thought I’d have to do the same with law school and I heard the Police Department was hiring,” she said noting of the force, “I loved it from day one.” From the start, Zimmerman was impressed by the variety — and impact — of police work. “You have an opportunity to make a positive difference in somebody’s life every single day,” she said. “You use every bit of knowledge you’ve ever learned, no matter how important or seemingly meaningless, because you come across such a variety of situations.” “We don’t get the calls that say, ‘Come out and celebrate with us, our child made honor roll,’ ” Zimmerman said. “We get the calls that say, ‘Come out, please hurry, because someone just assaulted us, or just assaulted our child.’ When we get there, we have the opportunity to do what we can to make a positive difference — to make a terrible situation better.” Hired in the wake of 10-year veteran police chief Bill Landsdowne’s resignation in the wake of multiple allegations of sexual misconduct within the department, Zimmerman said, “Those very few who’ve made the terrible decision to discredit this badge we’re not going to tolerate.” Zimmerman said a police badge is not
merely a piece of polished metal but a “symbol of service” standing for “integrity, honesty and professionalism.” “We are going to instill a culture of excellence in our police department,” Zimmerman said. “We are going to demand it of ourselves, because our communities deserve it. We are recommitting every single second of every single day to the words that are written on the doors of our police cars, not just San Diego’s finest but America’s finest.’ ” Zimmerman favors an independent audit to “see how we can do it (policing) better.” San Diego’s new police chief also supports a proposal to outfit every patrol officer with a camera monitoring their activities “We’re in the testing phased right now and it’s going well,” Zimmerman said pointing out she’s “completely in favor” of using any technology that can “make us more effective, provide the best service possible to our public.” Once captain of SDPD’s Northern Division covering the coastline, Zimmerman credits the beach alcohol ban for being a “game changer” making beaches a more suitable environment for everyone, especially families. “It smells like a beach now, you’re not dodging bottles and cans” said Zimmerman, a beach jogger. “Families have returned, People are enjoying themselves in an environment of safety and fun.” Zimmerman pointed out policing the beachfront is of paramount concern “not only for the 1.3 million people who live here but for the many millions of visitors we have.” Becoming San Diego police chief during a time of great transition, Zimmerman said the department is much differ-
ent today than it will be when she leaves. “Half of our department is eligible to retire within the next four years,” she pointed out. “And half of our working patrol officers have six or fewer years on our department. On some commands, 70 percent of offices have six or fewer years. That’s a lot of young officers. Not by age but by experience.” The task of transforming a 21st century police force for the nation’s eighth largest city falls to Zimmerman. Noting the role is ever-expanding, Zimmerman said law enforcement is no longer about just being a good police officer. “We’re social workers,” she said. “We’re parents, mentors — anything you can think of.” Noting San Diego has “one of the lowest staffed police departments of any major city,” Zimmerman’s convinced she and her colleagues are up to the task of creating the finest police force for “America’s finest city.” “Imagine the possibility of all of us, the mayor, the City Council, the city attorney, the police department and our wonderful communities working together in a collaborative, cooperative relationship with one goal: To make San Diego the most beautiful city in the world and a place where people can raise their families and play in harmony and safety,” Zimmerman said. “We can do this if we work together,” Zimmerman pledged. “And we need to because of our limited resources. We need to have all of these entitites working together as one. As the mayor said, ‘We are one San Diego.’ We are.”

How to save thousands when selling your home LA JOLLA, When you decide to sell your home, setting your asking price is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. Depending on how a buyer is made aware of your home, price is often the first thing he or she sees, and many homes are discarded by prospective buyers as not being in the appropriate price range. Your asking price is often your home’s “first impression,” and if you want to realize the most money you can for your home, it’s imperative that you make a good first impression. This is not as easy as it sounds, and pricing strategy should not be taken lightly. Pricing too high can be as costly to a homeseller as pricing too low. A
recent study, which compiles 10 years of industry research, has resulted in a new special report entitled “Homesellers: How to Get the Price You Want (and Need).” This report will help you understand pricing strategy from three different angles.

Get ready to get your Irish on As St. Patrick’s Day nears, Ocean Beach is getting it’s Irish up with The Fooks, a locally grown band that’s cutting it’s first album and morphing from harder rock into a more traditional blend of folk music. So says Dale Peters, percussionist with the Irish-inspired rock band begun by Kirk O’Brien seven years ago. “We perform regularly in San Diego at places like Gallagher’s Irish Pub in Ocean Beach, The Field in the Gaslamp Quarter and The Blarney Stone,” said Peters noting the group even did a twoweek tour of Ireland last summer as part of a swing through Europe. “We toured with an Irish band named the Leadfarmers,” said Peters noting the band, of late, has been going through a transformation in musical styles. “We started out doing more punk Irish (The Pogues, Flogging Molly), very hard rock,” Peters said. “But over the years Kirk O’Brien, who is older at age 52, has been going more toward folk rock and the blues, so the band has been
morphing into much more of a traditional sound, putting our own American spin on Irish ballads.” Peters said band members of The Fooks weren’t sure how their take on Irish music would go over in the mother country. “We didn’t know if the Irish would think we were butchering some of the songs from their homeland,” he said adding their reaction was surprising. “They told us, ‘We’ve been hearing these songs, done exactly the same way, for 300 years.’ They were excited about an American band doing them differently, and not trying to do them with a fake Irish accent or doing them in a cheesy way. They liked that we were doing our own version of Irish music.” The Fooks are in the process of releasing their first album, which is being mixed in the studio right now. On its Facebookat www.facebook.com/TheFooks, the band, tongue-incheek claims the “legend” of The Fooks was phrophesied to Kirk O’Brien from the spirit of Bono. O’Brien heeded the
message, setting out on a mission to change the world with his newfound vision of “Power-Celt Rock.” Journeying forth from the Land of Potatoes, Kirk enlisted the aid of singer/guitarist and fellow Bono devotee Doug Pedersen. As the saga of The Fooks goes, the “pulse” of the The Fooks was supplied by Dale Peters, a highly sophisticated drumming “robot” whose name is an acronym for Digital Audio Life-form Emulation Percussion Technology Rock System; D.A.L.E. Pe.Te.R.S. for short). “Seeking a place among the most epic, he (Gilly) joined forces with The Fooks, and the rest is history,” concludes the saga of the band on its Facebook site. The Fooks perform the first Friday or Saturday of the month at Gallagher’s in OB, and every other Friday at The Filed in the Gaslamp. They will be one of several groups performing at Shamrock, the annual St. Patrick’s Day block party in the Gaslamp District, to be held this year on Saturday, March 15.

of dignitaries. Jack has been doing volunteer work for the St. Pats parade and festival the last 10 years. The Irish Obecean also runs OB Services, which contracts with the BID to collect trash along Newport Avenue in the beach community’s business district. There’s a large Irish influence in San Diego, “more than you think,” noted Jack pointing out there are “Irish Societies” throughout the community, as well as a House of Ireland in Balboa Park. “There are Irish events featuring dancing all year long,” Jack said. “It’s a big thing.” Jack this year is chairman of sevenmember board which represents the Irish Congress and conducts the St. Patrick’s parade. What does it mean to be Irish? “That you’re crazy,” answered Jack adding, “I’m crazy.” Asked if she’s gotten any notoriety as Irish Woman of the Year, Jack replied that she has. “I was over at the Imperial House Lounge the other night and two men
from across the room bought me two shots of whiskey,” Jack said. “I didn’t want to tell them I don’t drink. So I acted like I did, but gave them to two of my friends. I didn’t want to hurt their feelings.” Born and raised in San Diego to an Irish Catholic family, Jack was taught the importance of volunteerism and public service early on. Her dad worked for Convair/General Dynamics and was constantly involved in volunteer activities which included his children. He was a member of the Elks Lodge, whose members adopted a less fortunate family for Christmas. “Volunteering is like a vitamin — it’s good for you,” noted Jack who is carrying on her family tradition of volunteerism. She added being an Irish Congress volunteer is rewarding because it promotes the St. Pats parade and festival which are “very positive family events.” Jack has been chairperson of the Ocean Beach Christmas Tree Festival for 15 years and coordinates more than 200 vendors at the Ocean Beach Street Fair in June. She can also be found at the PGA’s Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines, the Power Boat races on Mission Bay, the annual Oktoberfest and many more community events throughout the year.

“We want to stifle a team offensively by the end of a game,” said Pointers head coach Dave Aros. “Today, these girls believed that if they were within a couple points, they would make the defensive stops and make their free throws.” “We’re a family,” Maclean said as the celebration continued in the arena foyer. “We know there are going to be downs in any sport, but we’re a great team and can get through anything.” Maclean praised Aros, who was an assistant to legendary Lee Trepanier, the last coach to hang a CIF title banner in the Pointer gym that now bears his name. “Coach Aros is marvelous,” Maclean said. “During timeouts, it’s all about defense. We hang our hats on our defense.” “At this point of the season, our girls are comfortable with what we do,” Aros said, smiling as he watched his players buying souvenir T-shirts after the game. The game was, by no means, an easy one for the Pointers, who were down 10-4 after the first quarter. The Cardinal’s half-court press rattled them and led to early steals and turnovers. By halftime, the Pointers had cut the lead to 17-14, with a nice three-point play by versatile senior Makenna Sanders helping the surge. Aros stressed defensive pressure during intermission, and his girls, who began dominating rebounds under the Cardinal basket, actually took a brief lead before Hoover went back on top. During their big final quarter, the Pointers forced six Cardinal turnovers, converting many of these into points, and when Maclean launched an early bomb

from three-point range, the Pointers took a 25-24 lead they never relinquished. As the final seconds ticked off the arena scoreboard, the legion of Pointer parents and students erupted in a raucous celebration signaling the end of a 23-year wait. Game scoring included seniors Ilish Gedestad (3 points), Sanders (7) and Angelica Perez (4) along with sophomore Hiwalani Sierra (7). Gedestad led all players with nine rebounds. “The students (known as the ‘Dog Pound’) were crazy! I’m so happy they came out,” Maclean said. To reach the finals, the Lady Pointers defeated San Ysidro 48-28 at home, Vincent Memorial 48-41 in Calexico and Ocean View Christian 33-28 in South San Diego. “They just believed,” Aros repeated, nodding his head. Yes they did.

EXTRA POINTS • Maclean attributed her team’s slow start to “the big gym, the publicity, knowing you are on television.” • Under CIF scheduling, the game was played at 11 a.m. on a Friday. Pointer students who brought parental permission slips were allowed to leave campus to support their team. • The Pointers lost to the same Hoover team 47-28 Dec. 28 in the Crawford Holiday Tournament. • For the year, the Pointers finished with an 18-8 overall record and an 11-2 mark for second place behind Kearny in the Central League. With this year’s record, the Lady Pointers may jump to Div. III next season in the new CIF playoff system determined by a school’s record over the last five years instead of student enrollment.

The Sea Lions saved their best performance for last against Azusa Pacific. After the Cougars narrowly edged the Point Loma men’s basketball team twice earlier this season, PLNU got its revenge with a wire-to-wire 86-70 victory over APU in the NCCAA West Regional final on March 4. Junior Morgan scored a game-high 24 points and pulled in nine rebounds to lead the Sea Lions (17-11). Hayden Lescault also added 21 points on 7-of-9 shooting and Sam Okhotin hit four 3-pointers to notch 12 points. It was the defensive effort of the Sea Lions which set the tone in the game early and allowed them to hold a double-figure lead throughout most of the contest. PLNU scored the first five points of the game and went up 13-3 on a Junior Morgan layup less than seven minutes into the game. The Cougars hit just one of their first five shots and committed three turnovers in that span. After an APU (17-10) basket and a pair of free throws the Cougars cut the Sea Lions’ lead back to six (13-7) but PLNU answered with a 14-5 run and it took a 37-24 lead into the locker room. Midway through the second half APU would make its run by scoring seven straight points to cut the lead to five (4439) but once again PLNU answered the run. Lescault hit a 3 and Morgan made a jumper on consecutive possessions to extend the lead back to 10 (49-39). Azusa would never again really threaten Point Loma’s lead. It cut PLNU’s advantage to nine at 58-49 with six minutes left but the Sea Lions then scored nine straight points (five from Marek Klassen and four from Morgan) to put the game out of reach at 67-48 with just over four minutes remaining. Robert Sandoval led four Cougars in double-figures with 17 points. Troy Leaf also had 15 and Jared Zoller came off the bench with 13. This was the third time this season that Point Loma and Azusa Pacific had faced. The first two came in conference play where APU won the contest at Point Loma 75-74 on a Sharif Watson layup with 0.4 seconds remaining. Then off the game at APU went two overtimes with the Cougars edging the Sea Lions 87-84. Hayden Lescault voted PacWest Newcomer of the Year Point Loma junior guard Hayden Lescault has been voted as the 2013-14 Pacific West Conference Newcomer of the Year and named to the second team allconference by the league’s coaches. Lescault was also joined on the AllPacWest team by honorable mention selections Marek Klassen and Junior Morgan. Lescault led the Sea Lions and ranked eighth in the PacWest with 17.3 points per game while shooting 52 percent from the field. He was also fourth in the league in steals (1.78) and 10th in assists (3.62). Lescault even stepped up his performance in league games where he averaged 18.5 ppg to rank fourth in the PacWest. He scored in double-figures in 23 of 27 games, including reaching the 20plateau 12 times and the 30-point mark twice. Morgan, a junior from Bakersfield, Calif., was second on PLNU with 13.7 SEE PLNU, Page 13

Ocean Beach Featured Restaurant Espresso Cucina Re-Opens Under New Ownership New Look, New Menu, Same Great Tasting Pizza Espresso Cucina is open for business again after 4 months of being closed for a major face lift! The Italian restaurant located at 1776 Sunset Cliffs Boulevard has been a fixture in the community since the early 70’s. Chris Stavros and his wife Adriana Alcaraz purchased the restaurant when the former owner decided to sell and retire. The couple also owns The Olive Tree Marketplace right next door. The Stavros family has been in business in Ocean Beach since the 40’s when Mr. Cristos Stavros first owned and operated what was the “Corner Malt Shop” on Newport Avenue. “It gives us great pride and joy to contribute to the community where I was born and where I have worked my entire life,” says Chris Stavros. “We took the best of what Espresso had to offer and made it better.” The interior of the restaurant has a whole new look. The wall artwork, outdoor signage, and the tables are all made by

local artists. The menu is also different. The favorite traditional dishes like chicken picatta, spaghetti and meatballs, and lasagna are still on there, but the main difference in taste is the use of high-quality ingredients. The pizza dough is the same; however, the menu now calls for “creating your own pizza” which only comes in one standard 14- inch size. The beer and wine list is now contemporary. “Jackie and Jesus are really the heart and soul of Espresso, “says Stavros. They both have been working here for more than 30 years, and they know what customers like and need. They have been instrumental during the entire process, and we are thrilled that they chose to stay and work with us.” Espresso Cucina is open for dinner from 4:30 to 9:30pm, and closed on Tuesdays. Take-out food is available for pick –up only. For more information call 619-224-2227 or visit www. espressocucina.com

Four members of the Point Loma women’s basketball team were voted to the All-Pacific West Conference team by the league’s coaches. Callie Rhoads, Savannah Erskine and Jessica Escorza all earned second team honors, while Abby Boorman was voted to the third team. This is the second straight year Rhoads has earned All-PacWest second team honors. She finished eighth in the league with 14.1 points per game. She was third in the league with a .428 shooting per-
centage from long range and fourth with 62 3-point baskets on the season. Escorza earned second team honors this year after being placed on the honorable mention team last season. Despite playing in just over half the conference games, the junior forward was recognized by the conference coaches for her impact on the court. She led PLNU with 16.6 ppg, which would have ranked her third in the PacWest, while averaging 5.4 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game. Savannah Erskine earned all-conference honors for the first time in her career after leading the PacWest in both steals (3.89) and assists (6.22). She averaged 11.1 points per game to rank 24th in the league. Abby Boorman capped off a fantastic senior season with a selection to the AllPacWest third team. The forward from Reno, Nevada paced the conference with 2.8 blocks per game and was fifth with 8.6 rebounds. She finished the season with six double-doubles.
Health BRIEFS >> “I don’t have anyone anymore!”
THE SECRET TO STAYING ACTIVE AND LOOKING FIT AT ANY AGE The Health Principles that Give You a Six-Pack at 16 Help You Stay Sharp at 70 Point Loma — Brittle bones, lack of energy and shortness of breath are not the result of getting older—they are the result of an unhealthy lifestyle. Dr. Ryan Hummel is hosting an open health workshop to show patients and their guests how to adopt a fun, healthy lifestyle that can add healthy years to their lives. This workshop, titled “Living to 100,” will take place at the San Diego Yacht Club on Monday, March 24th at 6 pm. The event shows how anyone can incorporate the longevity-boosting habits of the world’s healthiest cultures. This life-changing event aims to help people: Understand how an active, determined mindset is crucial to living longer, healthier lives. Bypass obesity, type 2 diabetes and other epidemics through simplified eating habits. Improve quality of life today by avoiding common environmental toxins. According to the National Research Council and Institute of Medicine, Americans suffer from more diseases and are in worse health than most other wealthy nations. Dr. Ryan Hummel is hosting this public wellness event to demonstrate how proactive maintenance care helps people stay active, feel happier and live long, productive lives. “The United States is less healthy than other wealthy countries despite spending significantly more money on health care,” said Dr. Hummel. “We can change that fact by observing other, healthier cultures, and learning from their habits to make smarter choices for ourselves.” For more information about the March workshop, visit www.dryanhummel.com or call Trish or Ashley at 619-523-9355. Must RSVP if you plan to attend.
A retired nurse who is now a widow was referred by a friend to Innovative Healthcare Consultants. She started by telling our RN Care Manager that she is all alone and worried about what will happen to her if no one is there advocating on her behalf. She never had children and even though she had good friends, they were all about her age, in their 70’s and 80’s. As a nurse, she had seen patients in the hospital who didn’t have anyone around to advocate for them. She dreaded the idea of developing a serious health problem and finding herself all alone. She asked the care

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT Musical magic to raise funds for battle-worn veterans 14
THURSDAY · MARCH 13, 2014
THE PENINSULA BEACON
BY BART MENDOZA | THE BEACON It’s no secret that when there’s a need, San Diego’s musicians are among the first to step up to the plate and help. That said, certain names come up time and time again when organizing fundraisers and benefit concerts, including Cathryn Beeks and Tim Pyles. One of the longest-running fundraising musicians is virtuoso blues harp player Chet Cannon, who has promoted numerous events like the Red, White and Blues concert taking place at Winston’s Beach Club on March 22. The proceeds will go directly to the Miramar Marine Family Food Locker. On hand will be a terrific lineup, featuring some of the area’s top blue’s talent, including Robin Henkel and Whitney Shay, Jon Atkinson, Michele Lundeen, Blue Streak, Tony Tomlinson with The Fremonts and Cannon’s own, Chet and The Committee. “I try to organize at least a few benefits each year,” Cannon said. “Some for fellow musicians like Candye Kane, Ric Lee and Chris James, or a few we hosted for the Girls Club. The first Red, White and Blues event was very early on and held at (defunct venue) Etta’s Place, maybe 1999 or something like that. When asked for the reason behind his hard work behind these events, Cannon is succinct. “There is always a need.”
Others proclaim the need. “We are very grateful for the support we get from these shows,” said Rosmarie Treadway, director of the Food Locker. “Chet does a great job and the public really supports us. He always gets such wonderful entertainment. It all really helps. Certain times of the year our shelves get kind of low and this helps us fill individual baskets for those in need,” she said. Cannon has staged all those concerts over the years, with little more than his enthusiasm helping him through the process. “These fundraising concerts are pretty much me arranging for a venue and begging my friends to volunteer,” he said. “Not really begging, but you know what I mean. When we host an event of this nature of course we want artists that folks know and enjoy. I often feel guilty about asking my friends — all pros — to comework for free, Thankfully, I’ve been blessed with many talented friends that are willing to help.” Singer Whitney Shay said she is happy to contribute. “I think it’s important to give or lend a shoulder in general,” she said. “I don’t think of it as “giving back.” Sure, I struggle financially. I’m a working musician, but there are certainly others in the same boat and much worse off. If donat-
ing my talents helps in any way and I’m available, it’s the least I can do,” she remarked. “I feel blessed that I can offer a gift of music and that may help another in need. We have to keep things in perspective and lend a hand, or a voice. Every little bit matters.” While the fundraising aspect of this show is important, for Cannon, the interaction between musicians is the highlight. “One of the best things about a show like this, is that we musicians, who more often than not are out working a gig, get to hang around and swap stories.” But he’s clear on the purpose of the night. “My favorite part is when the folks from Marine Family Food Locker realize that they really aren’t alone and that other people care about the important role they are playing in our Military Families lives,” he said. “I feel that music is a gift and we should share it to create a better world around us if at all possible.” He pauses to reflect. “Again, I’m blessed by friends/other musicians who are of a like mind.” • RED, WHITE AND BLUES FOOD DRIVE AND FUNDRAISER: Sat., March 22 at WINSTON’S BEACH CLUB, 1921 Bacon St., 3:30 p.m. 21 and up. www.winstonsob.com
Point Loma residents capture prestigious honors in San Diego Watercolor Society’s monthly competition Point Loma residents Glory Giffin and Julie Anderson won awards at the San Diego Watercolor Society monthly show in January. The show’s juror was Luis Llarina. Giffin was awarded first place for her painting “Feeding Frenzy,” which depicts albacore tuna and sheephead feeding on a bait ball. It is painted on a navigation chart, which was prepared by gluing it to formcore and coating it with gesso to allow the application of watercolor. Llarina said that Giffin’s use ofa chart made for an imaginative surface and that the contrast of form and texture created a strong piece. Giffin, whose husband had a sport-
fishing boat in Point Loma, possesses his vast collection of charts to experiment on and finally developed the technique that worked for watercolor. Most of her work is by commission to fishermen. Anderson was awarded Best Mini for her painting “Outsider.” Llorina said Anderson’s strong design and composition made for an awardwinning painting. Anderson said she enjoys telling stories about people with her art and always carries a camera with her. The scene is from the Chalk Festival in Little Italy a few years ago. She said she noticed a group of people chatting and one other person who seemed to be
alone in the crowd. Anderson’s painting, done with ink and watercolor on tracing paper affixed to watercolor paper, is the story of that social separation. Julie is also a member of the Point Loma Artists, and her work can be seen
at www.pointlomaartists.com. The San Diego Watercolor Society is dedicated to expanding the appreciation of watermedia painting through education, exhibition and promotion. SDWS presents a new juried exhibition each
month, with an evening opening reception on the first Friday of each month. In this show, members were allowed to paint on experimental surfaces. For more information, visit www.sdws.org.

SDCCD re-elects Grosch as president At its Dec. 12 organizational meeting, Ocean Beach resident and business owner Rich Grosch was re-elected as president of the San Diego Community College District (SDCCD) Board of Trustees. First elected to the board in 2002, Grosch has served as president since 2009.
“We have come a long way since I was first elected president of the board,” he said. “We have handled the severe state budget situation effectively, with balanced budgets and no layoffs of permanent employees. We have the top bond ratings in the state, perfect audit reports and a massive construction program that is on track and under budget. Now that state finances are improving, I look forward to leading and working with our board and district to add more classes, hire more faculty and complete our bond program.” The SDCCD is governed by a five-member, locally elected board of trustees. Three students also serve a one-year term filling a student trustee position on a rotating basis. As the second largest of California’s 72 community college districts, the San Diego Community College District serves about 130,000 students annually through three two-year colleges and seven continuing education campuses. The three colleges, San Diego City College, San Diego Mesa College and San Diego Miramar College offer associate degrees and certificates in occupational programs that prepare students for transfer to four-year colleges and entry-level jobs.
