Volatile scenario Petition drive seeks to halt gas-laden trucks through neighborhood streets BY ANTHONY GENTILE | THE BEACON

The transportation of excess methane gas from the Point Loma Wastewater Treatment Plant — a city-based plan that involves trucking the gas through Peninsula neighborhoods — has some residents along the proposed route up in arms. The project, first presented to local planners in 2007, is expected to be operational by the fall of 2010. The excess methane gas is being

sold by the city under contract and will be trucked to a biofuel facility in Encinitas. “We’re directly impacted financially and personally in our safety and our sleep at night,” said John Pedersen, a member of a newly formed citizen group called Homeowners for a Green and Safe Point Loma. “By us going door to door, we have found that residents on our affected streets didn’t know and were outraged that they SEE HAULING, Page 4

The Federal Aviation Administration-approved use of a 250degree flight departure heading from Lindbergh Field — the result of a new construction project driven by fresh federal economic stimulus money — will put a new area of the Peninsula under the flight path. Concerned residents in the affected areas of south Point Loma are not dealing with the news quietly. “That’s an intrusion and an expanded influence that we were not clearly informed about during this whole planning process.

They did not discuss changing the vectors at all,” said Suhail Khalil, who chairs the Peninsula Community Planning Board’s Airport Committee. “In fact, they adamantly said they would not change the vectors.” Construction to improve the airport’s Taxiway C began Aug. 10. The nine-month project includes the replacement and installation of taxiway edge lights, installation of runway guard lights, replacement and installation of taxiway edge lights and reconstruction of taxiway pavement, according to officials SEE HEADING, Page 3

Contractors sue schools over project pacts Say nonunion apprentices will be denied school construction jobs BY SEBASTIAN RUIZ | THE BEACON

USS Albuquerque joins San Diego-based fleet Sailors disembark the USS Albuquerque and arrive for the first time on Thursday, Aug. 6 in their new home of Naval Base Point Loma. One hundred forty U.S. Navy submariners are assigned to the Albuquerque, which has completed her change of homeport from Groton, Conn. for the first time since being commissioned in 1982. The Los Angeles-class fast-attack submarine moved to San Diego to maintain 60 percent of the Navy’s submarine force in the Pacific as part of the 2006 Quadrennial Defense Review redistribution plan. Albuquerque, like her sister submarines, provides a combination of stealth, firepower and forward presence, which can help a joint force gain access in the early stages of a contingency or campaign, according to Navy officials. Albuquerque will join five other Los Angeles-class nuclear-powered submarines, three torpedo weapon retrieval boats and a floating dry dock homeported in Naval Base Point Loma as part of Submarine Squadron 11. The squadron staff provides training, material and personnel readiness support U.S. NAVY PHOTO BY MASS COMMUNICATION SPECIALIST 2ND CLASS DAVID QUILLEN for all units.

The San Diego Chapter of the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) filed a lawsuit against the San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) board of education in late June over part of an agreement between unions and the school district mandating that only apprentices associated with a union can work on about $2.1 billion worth of voterapproved school construction bond projects over the next several years. San Diego voters approved Proposition S bonds in November 2008 to repair and improve school facilities and infrastructure. AGC representatives claim the Project Stabilization Agreement, or Project Labor Agreement, violates California law and discriminates against state-approved nonunion apprentices seeking job opportunities without joining a union, said Brad Barnum, AGC

Lawyers representing AGC could not be reached for comment. The school board, however, has approved agreement and district staff currently work to implement the language for future contracts, he said. Tom Lemmon, business manager for the San Diego County Building and Construction Trades Council, said that private contracting groups often sue over Project Labor Agreements. “This lawsuit has no merit,” Lemmon said. “[Courts] have said that this type of agreement is legal.” In June 2004, seven apprentices affiliated with the Associated Builders and Contractors of California (ABC), a state and national association of private contractors, filed a lawsuit against Orange County’s Rancho Santiago Community College District, claiming the community college district’s Project Labor Agreement discriminated against nonunion apprentices, according to ABC documents. A federal judge ruled against the apprentices, according to the statement. As contractors fight to allow state-approved, merit-shop

The current agreement would prevent approximately 750 San Diego AGC apprentices from working on future Prop S school bond projects, he said. “San Diego is very unique in that [contractors] have a thriving apprenticeship program, a very effective, productive program. I don’t think the [school board] understands that they’ll be shutting that down,” Barnum said. AGC wants the court to stop the school district from “carrying out or enforcing the District’s Resolution or policy in any way,” according to language in the lawsuit. At the least, AGC is asking the court that the “union-only” apprenticeship requirement be removed from the PSA. School district board member John de Beck represents an area comprising several beach community schools in La Jolla and Ocean, Mission and Pacific beaches. De Beck voted against the Project Stabilization Agreement because of the apparent discrimination against nonunion apprentices. Board president Shelia Jackson, and board members John Lee Evans and Richard Barrera, voted for the agreement.

Cañon St. post office won’t have to take a licking from closure — for now BY ANTHONY GENTILE | THE BEACON

Ten San Diego County post offices recently emerged on a national list of 677 facilities marked for possible closure or consolidation — including branches in Point Loma, downtown and University City. And while early indicators are that the Point Loma facility will be spared, the downtown and University City locations are not out of the woods yet, according to postal officials. The list was presented by the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) to the House

with the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority. “In redoing the taxiway,” said Airport Authority senior public relations specialist Sharie Shipley, “we are making the runway more efficient and safer for all the planes that do arrive here and depart from here.” In order to alleviate potential traffic on the taxiways during the construction, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has approved the use of the 250degree departure heading. The FAA currently allows headings of 275 and 290 degrees. “During construction, a third departure path will allow us to depart more aircraft during very busy times,” said FAA WesternPacific Region communications manager Ian Gregor, “thus easing congestion on the ground.” Gregor insists that the 250-

of Representatives on July 30 and included the facility at 2931 Cañon St. in Point Loma. Of those 677 facilities identified nationally, however, none will be subject to closure in the immediate future, according to postal officials. “It’s customary. This process we’ve had in place for many, many years,” said USPS spokesperson Don Smeraldi. “Like any business, we’re always looking for ways if we have extra space.” The possibly targeted facilities downtown and in University City

are located on 2692 C St. and 3298 Governor Drive, respectively. “With the financial situation we’re in, it’s becoming more important than ever,” Smeraldi said. “From a national level, they said out of all the 3,000 post offices that are in urban centers and cities, are there any that we could possibly consolidate.” Smeraldi confirmed that the Point Loma branch was on the original review list. Smeraldi said, however, that the Cañon Street branch is safe for the moment.

“They’re not under review anymore,” Smeraldi said. “If we don’t get some legislative relief and the mail volume continues to climb the way it has been, we’ll revisit things as time goes on.” Smeraldi said the list is part of the Postal Service’s regular review process. He said all affected parties, including employees, employee unions, customers and city officials, would all be notified well in advance of any possible consolidations or closures. “It’s so preliminary and all the

stakeholders would all be kept informed,” Smeraldi said. “It’s not something that can happen overnight.” According to Smeraldi, the process of reviewing whether to close branches will not even start until the fiscal year begins Oct. 1. He said the beginning of the new fiscal year is not a deadline for any decisions to be made and that a timetable on closures is unknown.

degree heading will be used only when it is completely necessary. He said the FAA expects an average of fewer than 10 flights a day to use the heading during the construction as a temporary option. “This is just another one of those times when they feel it’s necessary in case they need them. There’s no guarantee that they’re going to get 10 airplanes a day on the 250 (-degree departure heading),” said Dan Frazee, the Airport Authority’s director of noise mitigation. “They’re just saying that the possibility exists if we have backup that they’ll use that as a viable option,” he said. This new departure heading, however, has left some residents in areas of Point Loma feeling a little uneasy. Khalil said the new heading presents a huge noise impact and sends flights over Dana middle, Silvergate elementary and Warren Walker schools. “Anything south of the 275

heading is what we’re opposed to,” Khalil said. “We don’t want to see fanning of the departure profiles to be a norm as they continue to expand the capacity of the single-runway airport. That’s the only way of doing it.” Khalil said departures from the 250-degree heading put a new group of residents under the flight path – including himself. The Point Loma resident said he does not want planes flying over his home. “I bought my home knowing that I was well removed from the departure profile. A lot of Point Loma community residents feel the same way,” Khalil said. “Overflights are a huge concern — not just noise, but air quality and general quality of life as well,” he said. Lance Murphy, a founding member of SANNoise, a citizenformed committee concerned about airport expansion and how it will affect local communities, echoes Khalil’s concerns.

Murphy said he thinks that as the airport expands, using the 250-degree heading will be necessary on a more permanent basis for it to run at full capacity. “My key issue is I think in the long run they’re going to try and have three departure tracks,” Murphy said, “so they are training the populus to accept this. That’s not right.” PCPB Airport Committee members want the Airport Authority to consider a different method of construction to lessen the need for and impact of the 250-degree departure heading. In a guest commentary in last week’s Beacon, Khalil suggested that the Airport Authority utilize the concrete ramp near the general aviation facility as an alternative path, as well as constructing the eastern half of the taxiway during curfew hours of 11:30 p.m. to 6:30 a.m., segment project construction, sequence departures from the north taxiway into the south taxiway, allow the 250-

degree heading only between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. and not allow MD80 aircraft to depart from the heading at anytime. The PCPB’s Airport Committee also plans to present a draft letter to both Sen. Christine Kehoe and Congresswoman Susan Davis at their next scheduled meeting on Thursday, Aug. 20 addressing community concerns about airport expansion and ramifications on quality of life issues. For more information about the monthly PCPB meeting, visit www.pcpb.net. “We’re in position right now to get Congresswoman Davis’ attention and say, ‘If this is the case and it will become the new norm, we’re going to fight it tooth and nail because that’s not what we want in our community,’” Khalil said.

Explosion backs up N. Harbor Drive for miles Traffic along North Harbor Drive near Lindbergh Field was snarled for hours Tuesday after a natural gas cylinder exploded in the back of a van, according to officials with the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department. A driver working for a mobile yacht service was cruising near the airport when a tank inside the van exploded with 14 gallons of natural

gas, blowing a hole in the side of the van, said officials. The driver managed to leap from the van before it collided head-on with an F-150 pickup truck, according to authorities. Neither the driver of the van nor any of the four occupants of the truck was injured. — From staff reports

weren’t asked.” Pedersen said the group would present a petition to the Peninsula Community Planning Board (PCPB) at their Aug. 20 meeting urging the PCPB to stop the proposed trucking of methane gas through their neighborhoods. Streets along the proposed routes that Pedersen provided include Catalina Boulevard, Cañon Street, Rosecrans Street, Lytton Street, Barnett Avenue, Chatsworth Avenue and Nimitz Boulevard. “They can come and present their petition,” said PCPB chair Charles Mellor. “We have open public comment at the beginning of the meeting.” Mellor and city project manager Tom Alspaugh said they were unaware of the petition drive. “It is of note,” Alspaugh said. “We are, as a project group, have been very concerned about the Peninsula community as a whole.” In addition to starting the petition that now has garnered at least 85 signatures, Pedersen – who lives on Catalina Boulevard – distributed a letter last month around his neighborhood. The letter, entitled “Point Loma Residents Seeking Alternatives to Neighborhood Truck Transport of High Pressure Natural Gas — Coming in 2010,” outlines the group’s concerns. “I crafted a letter from me and

what I basically did was go door to door from the end of the Point all the way through Lytton,” Pedersen said. According to Pedersen, the citizens group wants the issue to be reopened and the project changed so that it doesn’t involve the trucking of the methane gas. Pedersen said he feels the project was not properly vetted with the community, that it needs an environmental impact study and that transporting high-pressure gas through neighborhoods is both unsafe and will decrease the value of houses along the route. He does, however, feel the idea of transporting excess methane gas is a good one. “We’re not at war with anybody,” said Randy West, a member of the citizen group who lives on Chatsworth Boulevard. “We’re just saying there’s a way to do this better than the way they’re doing it right now.” Alspaugh said the city tried to make this a public process along the way. He said he has met with the community about eight times during the planning phases of the project. “There was a public process where we advertised to the public if they had any kind of concept that they could finance under our conditions and put together a proj-ect and propose something that was reasonable, we would listen,” Alspaugh said. It is unclear, however, whether it is too late for citizen outcry to make an impact on the project

that was first presented two years ago. Alspaugh said the city has had a 10-year contract in place with Encinitas-based BioFuels Energy since June. “The city of San Diego has a contract with BioFuels and they’re obligated to honor that contract,” Alspaugh said. “Before we presented that contract and the various contracts along the way, we have all gone through the various community groups. We did not choose this. We chose a process to go through to choose this.” Construction for the project is slated to begin next spring, with the first trucks hitting the road in fall 2010. When it starts, six to eight trucks per night will transport the compressed methane gas from the wastewater plant through Point Loma to Interstate 5. “There is a timeline that is dependent upon a lot of factors,” Alspaugh said. “It depends upon the financing and permitting and engineering and construction and all the things that are associated with a privatized project like this.” For more information on Homeowners for a Green and Safe Point Loma, call (619) 2210294 or e-mail john.pedersen2@gmail.com.

Nancy Thomas, 79, longtime volunteer, Point Loma resident Nancy Deewall Thomas died in San Diego on Aug. 3, 2009, following a courageous two-year battle with cancer. She was 79. Nancy was born in Santa Monica, Calif. Her parents were Raymond and Ruth Deewall. Her father was a career naval officer (who eventually retired as a rear admiral), so she lived in several different cities, including Bremerton, Wash.; Cincinnati, Ohio; Mobile, Ala.; Long Beach, Calif.; Coronado and NANCY THOMAS San Diego. Nancy graduated from Coronado High School and then attended Stephens College in Columbia, Mo., where she obtained an associate of arts degree. She graduated San Diego State University in 1951 with a bachelor of arts degree in education. At San Diego State she was a member of Pi Beta Phi sorority. She taught first-grade classes in the Coronado school system for two years. She married Lt. Robert E. Thomas in Coronado in 1953. During the next several years she again

lived in several different cities as her husband’s Navy duty stations changed. These cities included Groton, Conn.; Annapolis, Md.; Norfolk, Va.; Charleston, S.C.; San Francisco, San Diego and Honolulu, Hawaii. Nancy was very active for many years as a volunteer for Sharp Chilren’s Hospital. She also served a term as president of the submarine officers wives club. She enjoyed playing bridge with her many friends, reading books, playing piano, doing needlework and having a cat as a pet. After her husband’s retirement, they enjoyed taking cruises and overseas tours together. She is survived by her husband of 56 years, Capt. Robert E.

about playing for an independent league in the Midwest until the Padres signed him.” The San Clemente native transferred to PLNU two years ago from Riverside Community College and was part of a state championship team. His Arizona League numbers included allowing 10 hits, 4 runs and 8 strikeouts in 9.1 innings of work, with a 2.89 ERA in 7 games. Bovich then moved up to Eugene, Ore., where he has appeared in three games. “The Padres scouts were interested in him (Bovich) before the draft, but he didn’t throw too fast, about 82-84 mph. Teams don’t always want to take a risk,” Schaefer said. Bovich is one of three players from the 2009 PLNU squad to sign with a major league club. Kurt Steinhauer was drafted in the 24th round by the New York Mets, then played 12 games in the Gulf Coast League. But he has quickly moved up to the advanced rookie Appalachian League at Kingsport, Tenn. the past 12 games. “It is very exciting to get a chance to play,” Steinhauer said. “When I was a kid, I would dream about getting the opportunity to play baseball. Even though I grew up a Dodgers fan, I’m definitely a Mets fan now.” The Kingsport Mets are currently 14-23 but have won four straight games. Despite the relatively short time since he was drafted, Steinhauer has been able to compare college baseball to professional baseball.

Although area lifeguards said they remain confident they pulled enough votes from an Aug. 1 election divorcing about 100 full-time workers and additional seasonal guards from their current union in favor of forming a local 911 Teamsters union, some said by no means will the margin be wide. “We’re confident that we’re over the top,” said San Diego lifeguard Sgt. Ed Harris, whose support of the Teamsters climaxed in recent months when he filed a lawsuit against the guards’ current union, the Municipal Employees Association (MEA). “We’ve kept a kind of tally,” Har-

“They almost feel like different sports,” Steinhauer said. “In college, you play three or four games a week then get days off and are well-rested. But professional baseball is more of a grind because you play every day. “Personally, I like it better because you get the opportunity to come back the next day if you didn’t play that well the day before,” he said. “I love playing baseball and it is awesome to get the opportunity to play everyday.” Steinhauer is currently hitting .324 at Kingsport.

Other PLNU players who have been signed by major league teams are pitcher Mike Ekstrom, a member of the 2004 College World Series team who has split time between the minor leagues and the Padres, and Jonnie Lowe, who is currently pitching in the Class A advanced Carolina League with the Winston-Salem Dash. Lowe went 5-7 in 22 appearances with a (4.10) ERA with Class A Kannapolis in 2008.

“It’s about the extra facility space, and maintaining a retail presence in the area just depends on where that might be,” Smeraldi said. “We’ve determined that about 30 percent of our retail revenue doesn’t take place at a traditional post office anymore.” Smeraldi said more customers are using the USPS website, which allows customers to ship packages without leaving their houses. Other locations that offer similar services to the post office include contract postal units — stores that the Postal Service contracts with — and grocery stores, warehouse stores and ATMs that sell stamps. “If you’re looking at different possibilities, you probably want to go with the best possibility, in that the

So that would probably be the first thing we’d initiate,” Smeraldi said. Smeraldi said some of the potential closures and consolidations might not affect customers at all. “We’re talking about maybe consolidating some of the retail service with a nearby office, or totally transparent to customers, consolidating some of our carrier operations,” Smeraldi said. “We have facilities that are just letter carriers in the building. We may consolidate that building with another one and the customers wouldn’t even notice any impact.” For more information, call (800) 275-8777 between 5 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and from 5 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays, or visit www.usps.gov.

SAN DIEGO H2O

‘Mike Hynson — Transcendental Memories of a Surf Rebel’ — Editor’s note: The Peninsula Beacon continues its monthlong focus on San Diego H20 — a look at the area’s most beautiful seaside locations, water-based actiuities to dive into this summer and the people who make San Diego the envy of visitors from across the globe. BY DON BALCH | THE BEACON

Mike Hynson is a surfer who has experienced some major highs and lows in his 50-year surfing career — literally. In the mid-1960s, Hynson seemed to have everything. He was a handsome, blond-haired athlete with worldwide status gained as one of the co-stars of the iconic 1966 surfing-travel film “The Endless Summer.” He had notoriety as a fine surfboard craftsman with several notable innovations in surfboard design. He was married to Melinda Merryweather, a former Ford Agency model, and was hobnobbing with notable figures in and out of the surfing world. Hynson traveled the world and partied with famed figures like Jimi Hendrix, Timothy Leary

and Andy Warhol. However, like many others growing up in that period of social upheaval and change, Hynson got heavily involved with recreational drug use and eventually crashed hard, landing in jail on numerous occasions. Now, his wild ride through life is chronicled in a new book, “Mike Hynson — Transcendental Memories of a Surf Rebel,” which gives a vivid, personal account of those equally innocent and wild and crazy days. The book is a heartfelt, insightful and emotionally honest recollection of a period of great cultural change in our country. In regard to surfing, it covers a major transitional period with many of the colorful characters who are now considered iconic and legendary figures in the sport’s history. Surfing is only part of the book, however, as Hynson bares his soul when discussing his upbringing, love life, business ventures (both legal and illegal) and his involvement with farEastern spirituality.

drugs are candid and revealing while being a fascinating account of those heady times. Portions of the book take place in San Diego beach communities like Encinitas, La Jolla and Pacific Beach, where Hynson initially learned to surf as a young Navy brat. “I rode my first wave at Crystal Pier and got hooked on the thrill,” Hynson said. “Prior to that I had played a lot of golf and caddied at the Mission Valley Country Club for years and might have turned pro if I had continued with it. I would go out on the driving range after it closed and hit all the balls back to the clubhouse.” In 1959, a 17-year-old Hynson acquired an old, discarded balsa wood longboard from a Mission Beach backyard. He cut it down and shaped his first surfboard to favorable comments from his peers. “My cred came from making my first board,” he explained. “The garage was a total mess afterwards, with resin on everything, but the board was unique for the time — light and small.” Amazingly, Paul Schaffer, an old local friend of Hynson, recently contacted him to inform him that Schaffer actually had that original board in a Pacific Beach garage, where it had been for decades. Hynson, who has crafted well over 30,000 surfboards over the decades while working for top manufacturers such as Gordon & Smith, Hobie, Yater, Bing and Dewey Weber, visited and confirmed it was indeed his first board he shaped 50 years ago. One book chapter chronicles Hynson’s meteoric rise to fame as one of the two surfers featured in filmmaker Bruce Brown’s groundbreaking surf odyssey, “The Endless Summer,” along with 18-year-old Robert August. The three traveled the world in 1963 in pursuit of the perfect wave, and the actual journey was not always the happy, fun-filled quest as portrayed in the movie. Hynson did stumble upon the wave site, Cape St. Francis in South Africa, which turned out to be the defining sequence in the film, after getting into an argument with Brown and August and storming off down the beach to a small point he noticed breaking. After sampling its absolute perfection, he hurriedly gathered the others to film its fleeting glory. The rides by Hynson and August at this finely tubing, right-hand point break became the key ingredient Brown needed to transform his film into what became the first wide-release surf film to play in Middle America before daily sold-out shows. “The Endless Summer” eventually made $30 million — an astounding sum for the time — but left Hynson feeling angry, bitter and exploited without more equal revenue sharing from it. Hynson had a falling-out with Brown and August for years but is cordial at reunion engagements these days. “I have issues, but we’re cool with it now,” he said. “I’m social with them.” Hynson recounts tales of early days of living and surfing Hawaii’s famed North Shore of Oahu back when it was barely ridden, including the first time

the infamous Banzai Pipeline break was surfed in 1961. Pipeline, with its shallow, coral cave-ridden bottom, was considered too dangerous prior to surf legend Phil Edwards initially tackling it. “I spotted for Phil Edwards, who was scared to death, but he rode the first waves out there and I ran out with my board when I saw other people starting to show up,” Hynson recalled. One chapter describes his first encounter with the mindexpanding drug LSD while at Blacks Beach with a fledgling psychedelic spiritual group called the Brotherhood of Eternal Love. It started as a seemingly positive, life-changing experience that led to an eventual path of selfdestruction. Dr. Timothy Leary and the biggest cocaine dealer in California were a couple of the people Hynson spent considerable high times with. As his involvement with drugs expanded, he vividly recounts a stressful trip to Nepal when he and two friends smuggled hashish inside three hollowedout surfboards. Considering the times and how hazy some of these memories could be, Hynson brings a real feel for the mood, atmosphere and emotions while visiting Nepal and experiencing an opium den, risking extended jail time to bring large quantities of hash back to the states. It was in jail, during a later drug bust, that Hynson first started penning his memoirs. “I was reading so much, I got so into it,” he said. “Then I started writing about people and things that inspired me and it just flowed – a stream of consciousness. It was like a 12-step process and I wrote hundreds of pages.” Behind-the-scenes tales of incidents are detailed in an informative and almost amusing manner, considering how outrageous some events were. In 1970, the psychedelic concert flick “Rainbow Bridge” was filmed on Maui, featuring visiting Stratocaster guitar maestro Jimi Hendrix, who played a concert in an open cow pasture below Haleakala Crater. The film also featured Hynson, David Nuuhiwa and others surfing on the island. Hynson had co-started a compa-

ny called Rainbow Surfboards, which featured colorfully designed artwork, one of which is shown in the movie being cut open to reveal bricks of smuggled hash. The film debuted in 1972 in Laguna Beach and the turnout had a large number of narcotics officers on hand to witness much of the audience lighting joints. “It was so smoky you couldn’t see the stage, and we had these Rainbow boards lined up around the screen,” Hynson recalled. “After the narcs saw the movie, they were pulling over everyone with a Rainbow surfboard on top of their car and harassing them. It was really ridiculous.” Nowadays, Hynson, 67, is clean and fit and works doing research and design on surfboards in Encinitas. He also shapes custom board orders for a large Japanese clientele. His high-performance quad-fin boards are in strong demand. Golf is still a big passion in his life, and he plays “every chance I get,” he said. Asked recently if he might have changed anything if he could have known where his life’s path would lead him, he responded emphatically, “Absolutely not! “I’m having a rebirth now,” he added. “I’m starting my own surfboard business with my son, and it’s so much fun. Life keeps getting better.” The book project, six years in the making, has been enjoyable for him. “These are good, real stories with lots of photos and it’s been a whole learning process in the publishing world,” he said. “I’ve had all kinds of good responses from it.” Michael Hynson has caught a new kind of perfect wave and is clearly enjoying the ride. “Mike Hynson – Transcendental Memories of a Surf Rebel” by Michael Lear Hynson and Donna Klaasen Jost is published by Endless Dreams Publishing. The first, limited-edition book signing is scheduled for Aug. 20, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the California Surf Museum, 312 Pier Way in Oceanside.

SAN DIEGO H2O Legacy of San Diego boatbuilders encapsulated in coffee table book REVIEW BY JOE DITLER | THE BEACON

The legacy of Kettenburg Boat Works can be seen in the sheer number of wooden vessels still plying the Pacific Ocean. It’s a story of the last of the “amateur” yacht designers, builders and racers to gain a following based on the quality of their work alone, rather than on an academic pedigree. They were sailors first, designers after. The San Diego-based company started in 1919 as grassroots as could be, lowering handmade boats into the swampy waters off Shelter Island on roughly hewn wheels and ways. Workers had to wait for high tide to lift their larger creations out of the mud. The San Diego Maritime Museum, in conjunction with Mystic Seaport Museum, has produced a vivid coffee table book titled “Building Kettenburgs,” which captures the legacy of the Kettenburg family, its boats and what made the Kettenburgs so special.

“Initially, building the Kettenburg boats provided the basis for a family business,” said Raymond Ashley, director of the San Diego Maritime Museum. “Ultimately, it provided a kind of maritime immortality, a deepening patina of legend that has followed the boats themselves as they sail across the decades and generations.” Ashley said the Kettenburg Pacific Class (PC) was the first popular class of ocean sailing boat in Southern California that people of ordinary means could aspire to own. Today, there are dozens of them still afloat and racing. The PC fleet is extremely active (and inexplicably competitive) on a weekly basis in San Diego. The Kettenburgs created a name that people could trust and a boat one knew would not fail them. They were known for their integrity and their appreciation of both the people building and the people buying their boats. A plaque hung in Paul Kettenburg’s office heralding two simple words: “People Matter.”

“Building Kettenburgs,” by Mark Allen, chronicles the rich history of the successful business that grew to be one of the maritime mainstays at Shelter COURTESY PHOTO Island.

From high-speed v-bottom rumrunners of the 1920s to the PC sailboats of the 1930s; from government fishing boats and plane-rearming contracts during World II to the classic Pacific Cruising Class (PCC) after the war, the Kettenburg boats left their mark on the world of boating.

HEALTH · BEAUTY · FASHION · FUN The Aging Family Member For the last two months, we have been offering recommendations to help the family member understand their aging parent and how you can help them. This month we will discuss: Discourage ageist attitudes. Simply put, ageism is prejudice

against the elderly. It exists in many forms but can be particularly damaging to an older person’s self-esteem when it assumes that all of their woes are age-related. Remind yourself that by chalking up everything that ails your parent to

their age, you sell your parent short. If they are depressed, it may have nothing to do with the fact that they’re 80 and everything to do with a biological predisposition to depression. And remember that right-knee pain in a 90 year-old can’t just be age if there’s no problem with their left knee. Strive to maximize your parent’s quality of life. No matter our age, we all want to enjoy life to the fullest and have the capability to do the things we want to. Improving the enjoyment of life and a parent’s function ability are the cardinal goals of a geriatric care manager and the RN Case Managers at Innovative Healthcare are ready to help. Call Innovative Healthcare Consultants today at (877) 7311442 or visit our website at www.innovative hc.com for more information.

Ask Dr. People’s Q: Dear Doc, I love corn on the cob in the summer, but is corn really that good for me? Terri Aki A: Dear Terri, The one vegetable that symbolizes summer more than any other, except the tomato, most likely is sweet corn, and to answer your question, yes it is good for you! It’s super nutritious, as it’s loaded with vitamins C and A, B1, B2, B3 and B6. Corn also supplies you with a good dose of complex carbohydrates, fat, calcium, iron, potassium, and even protein. So keep the salt and butter to reasonable levels and grab another cob, and remember, organic is best!

SPORTS Peavy trade saves Padres Billie Jean King hosts junior nationals 14

THURSDAY · AUGUST 13, 2009 THE PENINSULA BEACON

a bit of payroll, little else BY MARTIN JONES WESTLIN | THE BEACON

Area lore has it that on Friday, Aug. 1, the agent for Padres pitcher Jake Peavy woke his client from a nap to tell him a trade to the Chicago White Sox was his for the taking — all Jake had to do was waive his no-trade clause, part of his $11 million contract for 2009. Acknowledging that he likely won’t play out his San Diego contract, the 2007 Cy Young winner, hobbled by a tendon tear in his right ankle, said yes to the Sox deal, just as he had said no in May. Chicago, which is contending for the American League Central title, is now on the hook for Peavy’s salary. The compensation rises incrementally to a high of $17 million in 2012, with a $22 team option the following year. And the Padres get four pitching prospects out of the transaction — presuming even two of them develop nicely, it’s a cinch the Dads will come out ahead in the deal. But right now, it’s Peavy’s $11 million that looms large for the Padres’ money men. It’s nearly one-third the entire team payroll of $37 million, which ranks 28th out of 30 franchises (the New York Yankees have the largest, with nearly $210 million). It also helps illustrate the

topheavy feel to the club’s salary roster. Right fielder Brian Giles, pitchers Chris Young and Heath Bell and first baseman Adrian Gonzalez command about $17 million of the remaining compensation, leaving only $9 million distributed between 16 players. Gonzalez has been making noise about leaving for the Boston Red Sox; if that transpires, the payroll would theoretically realize an immediate additional savings of $3,125,000. Beyond that, the team’s lowly payroll stature not only reflects the team’s make-up but its onfield play. As of Aug. 11, San Diego had won six of its last 10 games — but it’s saddled with a record of 48-66, also 26th best out of 30 teams. Of course, that’s something of a coincidence. Even so, the loss of Peavy tends to underscore it, sort of like a self-fulfilling prophecy yet to play itself out. Jake has to do what he has to do, and at only 28, he’s faced with professional and personal decisions that affect not only him but also his wife and kids. It’s only too bad that those decisions have such far-reaching effect in the cultural fortunes of the eighth largest city in the United States. The recession alone has fueled the surly mood around here for months — and now this.

BY DAVE KENSLER | THE BEACON

During her remarkable career on the professional tennis tour, Billie Jean King won 39 Grand Slam championship — 12 in singles; 16 in doubles and 11 in mixed doubles. However, those championships and others she won are only marginally on her radar now, thanks to a lesson King learned from her father at a young age: never looking back. It is a lesson which propels her to this day on her approach to life. “The first time I was ever on the front page of the sports section in my hometown newspaper, it was for losing a tennis match 6-0, 6-0,” King said. “I did not even win a single game. My father told me to never worry again about what is printed about me or my performance because it is about yesterday.” Today, almost 20 years have passed since she last played competitively, yet King continues to move forward and enjoy every opportunity which comes her way. Last week, King played host for an event she created, the Advanta World Team Tennis Junior Nationals, held at the Barnes Tennis Center. There were 16 teams from throughout the United States made up of six players each, three boys and three girls all in the age range of 14 to 18. It is doubtful one could find many retired professional athletes in any sport, 20-some years removed from the competition, who will spend four days with nearly 100 teenagers. “I love it,” said King during an

interview at last week’s event. “Every year, I learn more and more how smart all of these kids are about life.” Unlike many celebrity event hosts who may make just a keynote speech or two, King is hands-on the entire Junior Nationals event. Between giving seminars off the court, coaching sessions on the court, meeting with teams and individual players and offering advice to team coaches, she is involved with the competition from start to finish. So what is her best advice for working with teenagers? “Be truthful,” King said. “Kids want to know the truth and you better be honest and tell them. By doing so, not only do you teach them but they also teach you.” At the conclusion of the competition, King, whose life never seems to hit the pause button, headed for Washington, D.C. There she was honored Aug. 12 as one of 16 people receiving from President Obama the nation’s top civilian honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom. “The word ‘freedom’ has always been one of my favorites ever since I was a young girl,” King said. “I love history. Think about what it means. The freedom to worship. The freedom to believe in a cause.” Yet for King, the honor means more than just what she has achieved or done in her lifetime. “This award also belongs to everyone who has helped me along the way in my life,” King said. “My parents and brother, Clyde Walker, who first taught me how to play tennis and made it fun, teachers I had in school.” This was not King’s first time

Public Notice NAVAL BASE POINT LOMA SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA Formation of Restoration Advisory Board Membership Solicitation The Department of Defense recognizes the importance of stakeholder participation as part of its Installation Restoration (IR) Program. Therefore, Naval Base Point Loma (NBPL) is announcing the establishment of a Restoration Advisory Board (RAB). The RAB is intended to enhance public participation by involving the local community in the environmental restoration process. The RAB is an advisory body designed to act as a focal point for the exchange of information, between NBPL and the local community, regarding restoration activities. The RAB is intended to bring together community members who reflect the diverse interests within the local community, enabling the early and continued two-way flow of information, concerns, values, and needs between the affected community and the installation. RAB membership is a voluntary, non-compensated activity. RAB members will be asked to meet regularly to review and comment on technical documents and plans relating to the ongoing environmental studies and restoration activities at NBPL. Members will be expected to serve as a liaison with the community and be available to meet with community members and groups. Membership terms will be decided by the RAB. All RAB meetings will be open to the public. Technical support staff will be available to provide informational support and to assist RAB members with technical issues. Community members interested in forming a RAB for NBPL are invited and encouraged to submit a membership application. Membership applications are available on line at: https://www.cnic.navy.mil/PointLoma/Programs/Enviromental/index.htm Or, you may request a RAB membership application form from: Ms. Allison Basche NBPL Remedial Project Manager Naval Facilities Engineering Command Southwest 2730 McKean Street, Building 291 San Diego, CA 92136 allison.basche@navy.mil

meeting Obama. In June, she was at a conference focusing on the impact of Title IX when a woman told her, “The president wants to meet with you.” “I thought she meant the president of one of the organizations who were part of the conference,” King said. “So I asked, ‘Which president?’ To which the woman replied, ‘The President of the United States. He is waiting for you now.’” In the ensuing 20-minute conversation, King was stunned to learn Obama was a longtime admirer. “The president told me when he was 12 or 13 years old he would come watch me practice at Punahou School in Honolulu, Hawaii, which, of course, is the school he attended,” King said. “Then he told me in later years of places in Chicago where he would watch me train too. I could not believe it.” King said Obama also told her, “I just knew you were going to beat Bobby Riggs,” referring to her much-celebrated match with Riggs, an achievement often cited as playing a significant role in the enormous growth of tennis in the 1970s. The theme for last week’s Presidential Medal of Freedom ceremony was “Agents of Change.” In addition to King, some of the other recipients included Sandra Day O’Connor, the first female Supreme Court Justice; renowned South African freedom fighter Desmond Tutu; actor Sidney Poitier; and acclaimed physicist Stephen Hawking.

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT 15 Hall set to launch CD-release party for ‘Schwagtown’ at The Harp THURSDAY · AUGUST 13, 2009

THE PENINSULA BEACON

BY BART MENDOZA | THE BEACON

The lure of San Diego’s pop culture to musicians may seem like a recent trend, but it has actually been a reality for decades. Some of the most recent notable performers include Jewel (Alaska), Jason Mraz (Virginia) and Grand Ole Party (San Francisco). Yet jazz and pop artists, such as Frankie Laine (Chicago), began arriving in the late ’60s. Perhaps the most important influx of new blood came during the early ’80s, when transplanted performers such as the Unknowns (Georgia) and Mark DeCerbo (New York) were establishing themselves on the local club circuit. Singersongwriter Peter Hall, a longtime mainstay of the local pub and coffeehouse circuit, arrived on that wave. Hall will perform at The Harp in Ocean Beach on Sunday, Aug. 16. The show will be a CD-release event for Hall’s latest album, “Schwagtown.” “The title is my nickname for Ocean Beach,” Hall said. “I was briefly in a band called the Schwags, and since OB was my adopted home for 20 years, it felt appropriate to bring it all together for a title.” Raised in Massachussetts, Hall originally attended college in Durham, N.H., arriving in San Diego in 1980. He lived in Ocean Beach for the first 20 years before settling down in Clairemont. He said his reason for the move west was pragmatic. “I had nothing to lose,” Hall said. “I had dropped out of college and

the California dream was calling me.” His sister had recently relocated to San Diego, making the area an even more obvious choice. Hall got his start in music a little later than the average musician, learning to play the guitar at age 20 in 1979. He cites two main reasons for his foray into music. “The first thing that comes to mind is all the artists that were happening in those days,” Hall said. “You had the classic stuff like The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, punk was happening and there were a lot of artists like Elvis Costello and The Pretenders starting out. It was a great time for music.” The move from fan to musician came with his arrival at college. “It seemed like guitars were everywhere,” Hall said. “Guys were jamming in dorm rooms, playing on the lawns; it was everywhere. It appealed to me, so I went out and bought a cheap guitar and learned a few chords. It wasn’t long before I knew that writing and performing is something that I would want to be doing for the rest of my life.” Hall has released two previous albums, “Ataraxia” (1995) and “Uncluttered” (2002), with original music being the main focus. “Schwagtown” mixes things up a little more, including only five originals among the 12 tracks. The album includes classic blues songs such as Bo Diddley’s “Who Do You Love” and Willie Dixon’s “You’ll Know Me,” alongside more contemporary material such as Bob Dylan’s “You Ain’t Going Nowhere.”

Peter Hall performs at 4 p.m. Sunday at The Harp, 4935 Newport Ave. in Ocean Beach.

“I suppose I had other songs of my own that could have been included,” Hall said. “But when I play gigs I include a lot of classic blues tunes. As it became time to put the album together, these songs seemed to fit the bill better. As it turns out, they give a pretty accurate representation of the cross-section of songs you might hear at one of my shows.”

Not your childhood Oz: ‘Wicked’ blows into Civic BY CHARLENE BALDRIDGE | THE BEACON

Dorothy’s house still makes a direct hit on the Wicked Witch of the East and Dorothy still melts the Wicked Witch of the West by throwing a bucket of water on her; however, this is not Dorothy’s Oz. It’s the land of Oz as seen through several amusing prisms. First there was L. Frank Baum, the originator known as the royal historian of Oz, who began a series of popular children’s books in 1900. The first was titled “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.” Evolved from a series of refractions came multiple Tony Awardwinning 2003 stage musical titled “Wicked.” Winnie Holzman’s book for the musical is based upon Gregory Maguire’s amazing and amusing novel, “The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West,” in which Dorothy is quite peripheral. The real story concerns two witches, one wicked and the other Glinda the Good (think Billie Burke in the 1939 film). Stephen Schwartz (“Godspell,” “Working,” “The Children of Eden”) wrote music and lyrics. A box office bonanza for all concerned, “Wicked” is still playing on Broadway. Currently there are six international companies and two national tours, one of which is seen at the Civic Theatre through Aug. 30, presented by Broadway/San Diego, a Nederlander Presentation. Readers who hope to see “Wicked” should act now. Tickets are scarce. Here’s the story: Glinda (soprano Katie Rose Clarke) floats to earth in a bubble,

much like Burke’s good witch, to rejoice over the death of the Wicked Witch of the West. The rest of the story is a flashback evoked by the question, “You and the Wicked Witch were friends at one time, weren’t you?” Indeed, Glinda and Elphaba (powerful Donna Vivino) and Elphaba’s wheelchair-bound sister, Nessarose (Amanda Rose), were students together at Shiz University, run by Mme. Morrible (Myra Lucretia Taylor). Other characters include Fiyero (handsome baritone Richard Blake), the prince both Glinda and Elphaba love; Boq (Ben Liebert), the Munchkin who loves Glinda; an old goat of a professor (Paul Slade Smith); and the Wonderful Wizard himself (Lenny Wole). Onlookers learn how the flying monkeys came to be, from whence came the Scarecrow, the Tinman and the Cowardly Lion, and how Elphaba, who becomes the witch of the West, got her undeserved reputation as wicked. The score includes such unforgettable numbers as Elphaba’s “The Wizard and I,” ”I’m Not That

Girl” and “Defying Gravity,” sung when she enchants a broomstick and escapes from the Emerald City. As for the voices, Vivino’s Elphaba gets all the “belt” numbers, and considering that she started her career at 8, singing Young Cosette in “Les Miserables,” her voice is in remarkably fine shape with no apparent holes in the vocal line. To boot, she is a fine actor. Clarke’s Glinda is the best I’ve ever heard vocally. She has an amazingly free and lovely high voice, with little of the unpleasant rapid vibrato that plagues so many others. The rest of the company is just fine, more than adequate. The costumes and sets, by Susan Hilferty and Eugene Lee, respectively, are marvelous to behold as lit so beautifully by Kenneth Posner. Tony Meola’s sound has good balance with the singers and the 14piece orchestra. Purists may object to the twisted plot and the fact that Dorothy and her beloved companions are absent; others find the preachy elements to do with the mistreatment of Oz’s talking animals tedious. This writer, who learned to read with the Oz books, finds it all surprisingly good fun. “Wicked” continues at 7 p.m. Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 7:30 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays, 2 and 7:30 p.m. Saturdays, and 1 and 6:30 p.m. Sundays through Aug. 30 at the Civic Theatre, 1100 Third Ave., downtown. Tickets range from $25 to $128 and are available at the Civic Theatre ticket office, (619) 570-1100, and Ticketmaster, (800) 982-2787, or BroadwaySD.com.

Now a 30-year veteran of the local music scene, Hall said he is pleased with his career to date and is looking to “take things to a new level.” But whatever lies ahead in terms of sale and airplay for “Schwagtown,” he considers the joy he gets out of playing music to be the true benchmark of success. “There’s nothing better than

COURTESY PHOTO

the feeling I get at the end of a gig when the audience responds,” Hall said. “That’s a feeling of accomplishment my day job never gave me.” Peter Hall performs at 4 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 16 at The Harp, 4935 Newport Ave. The show is for those 21 and up and there is no cover charge.
