Finding a common bond


Outgoing City Council President Scott Peters won five votes from his colleagues Monday for a seat on the San Diego Unified Port District Board of Commissioners, beating out a nominee from Point Loma. The action took place despite an attempt by Councilmember Donna Frye to have the vote postponed until four newly elected members of the council begin their terms next month. Peters, of La Jolla, will serve a Port District term that will end Jan. 2, 2013. Peters is leaving his 1st District council seat next

Black, of Mission Hills, also won five votes from the City Council for the only other seat as a Port District commissioner for a term that will also end in 2013. Both begin their terms Jan. 2. Robert McNeely, of Point Loma, won the votes of four councilmembers. Several councilmembers told McNeely they prefer him to remain on the Centre City Development Corporation, to which he was recently reappointed by the council.

Peninsula Chamber eyes new economic kickstart BY SEBASTIAN RUIZ | THE BEACON

Peninsula business leaders say the number of storefront vacancies in the Peninsula signal tough economic times resulting from the natural ebb and flow of repeating business cycles. So to help support businesses in and around the Peninsula, the Point Loma Chamber of Commerce is courting the idea of creating a Business Improvement District (BID) for the Point Loma area, said Jarod Gorla, director of business improvement for the Peninsula Chamber. “It [BID] creates marketing dollars to pressure-wash streets … and make the area look nice and then also pump money into marketing and advertising, putting up lights and just making it a place that people want to go to and stay,” Gorla said. A BID raises money through a fee on business licenses issued by the city for a specific area. The BID submits receipts to the city for reimbursement of funds the city and state collect. Matt Kalla, president of the Peninsula Chamber, said a BID created by Peninsula property owners would help provide additional direction for the business and residential community in Point Loma. “A lot of different organizations are … working on a common goal yet aren’t communicating with each other,” he said. He said groups like North Bay Redevelopment Agency, Point Loma People for Progress — a community organization spawned from Liberty Station development — the

Peninsula Community Planning Board and a North Bay BID all have similar business interests. He said a Point Loma BID would be a resource for the different groups. Peninsula Chamber of Commerce members pay $80 a year for access to networking mixers and other member benefits, he said. BID fees range depending on location but some business can pay more than $90 in fees. Several communities — some more recently than others — have already established BIDs, including Little Italy, Pacific Beach and Ocean Beach. The Ocean Beach BID, established by the Ocean Beach MainStreet Association (OBMA), was one of the earliest in 1978, according to officials. Denny Knox, executive director of OBMA, said some vacancies along Newport Avenue and surrounding areas are due to periodic business cycles in Ocean Beach. “In the ’70s we had 40 percent vacancies at one time,” she said. “We have nothing like that [now]. If you count it up, it’s a very small percentage.” A stroll through Newport Avenue and around Ocean Beach reveals about five empty storefronts. Some of them remain vacant because of market forces, she said. Despite a lagging national economy, Knox remains optimistic about Ocean Beach’s local economy. “A vast majority of our businesses are run by people who are realistic and they really do understand business, and I believe they will make the necessary changes to weather the storm,” she said.

Honoring a fallen hero A funeral procession of police cruisers and SWAT vehicles makes its way through the streets of Point Loma on Oct. 29 in honor of a San Diego police officer killed during Army Reserve duty in Afghanistan on Oct. 16. The officer, 33-year-old Frederico Borjas, was reportedly killed during an ambush by a gunman disguised as an Afghan border patrol officer. Following the procession, which closed Rosecrans Street, Cañon Street and Catalina Boulevard, Borjas was buried at Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery. PHOTOS BY JIM GRANT | THE BEACON

The Coaster Saloon has been a family business for twenty five years, operating directly across the street from the historic Belmont Park Roller Coaster. Having completed a series of renovations, the new Coaster presents patrons with a clean and modern feel that many would be surprised to find in Mission Beach. The new layout features a dinning area with booth seating on the inside with a horseshoe bar straddling the interior dinning area and an outside patio-dance floor. The centerpiece however is the menu, brainchild of Chef Roy Trudeau, a thirty five year veteran of the restaurant industry. Chef Roy is a native of Massachusetts and has brought a new east coast feel to Mission Beach, featuring M—F daily specials, such as soup made from scratch at $2.95 and ten inch personal thin crust pizza. The Coaster Saloon is a pleasant walk or bike ride away for many Mission and PB locals, offering an excellent quality of food at prices that locals will appreciate and a dinning atmosphere second to none, making it a great place for nightlife as well as weekend Mimosas and bloody Maries.




Jurors deliberate in case of surfer’s beating death BY NEAL PUTNAM | THE BEACON

Jury deliberations continued this week in the Seth Cravens trial following a dramatic closing argument Monday by his attorney who got within five inches of the prosecutor’s face and yelled an obscenity while pretending to be slain surfer Emery Kauanui Jr. Attorney Mary Ellen Attridge called the prosecutor’s murder case “a runaway train” in which she asked that Cravens, 22, be acquitted of second-degree murder and manslaughter in the May 28, 2007, death of Kauanui in front of his mother’s home in La Jolla. “Choo, choo!” concluded Attridge. Attridge claimed Kauanui was “not some docile victim” and instead was the aggressor, citing the testimony of Matthew Yanke, 22, who told jurors last week that Kauanui stepped up to Cravens and yelled at him within five inches of Cravens’ face. “How the (expletive), how the (expletive), how the (expletive) did you come over to my house?” Attridge screamed to Deputy District Attorney Sophia Roach. Roach froze and gave no reaction to the outburst. She rose and told jurors in a rebuttal argument that “insulting words are not a defense.” Roach told jurors Yanke lied about the exchange between Cravens and Kauanui and that Cravens was the aggressor, not Kauanui. Yanke didn’t say Kauanui yelled the expletive three times as Attridge had illustrated. Roach urged the nine-man,

three-woman jury to compare Yanke’s testimony to that of other witnesses, such as the victim’s neighbors who called police and Kauanui’s girlfriend, Jennifer Grosso. She said Grosso was “a courageous, courageous young woman” who was “the only person to try and stop the attack” at the scene by Cravens and four others around 1:30 a.m. on May 24, 2007. “There is no self-defense here. Seth comes at him at a pace, delivers a punch that knocks Emery out before he hits the ground,” argued Roach. “He hits the ground with a sickening thud.” Both sides agree that Kauanui’s head hitting the pavement caused brain damage that led to his death four days later. Roach said that Kauanui’s “brain was shaken,” causing it to bleed and fracture. She said surgeons cut his skull open to allow for swelling, but that didn’t save him. Roach quoted a witness as saying Cravens had laughed about Kauanui’s injury before he died, saying he “put him to sleep” in the hospital. The jury deliberated 3 1/2 hours Monday before going home; the jury and court had Tuesday off for Veterans Day. An early verdict wasn’t expected because jurors also must decide nine other charges involving previous assaults to other people, some going back several years. Cravens has remained in county jail in lieu of $1.5 million bail since his arrest in May of 2007.

Comic-Con has nothing on San Diego Bay wine and food fest BY LORALEE OLEJNIK | THE BEACON

Like a Comic-Con for foodies, food lovers of all types, from celebrity chefs to microwave mavens, will flock to the downtown area through Sunday, Nov. 16 for the annual San

Diego Bay Wine & Food Festival. The star, however, is the wine, abundant in quantity and quality. Last year, more than 700 different wines were poured at the Grand Tasting event alone. “This is our fifth anniversary, and

we’re really excited to see how it has progressed each year,” said Michelle Metter, festival producer. Southern California’s largest and poshest culinary festival will feature a weeklong line-up of all things gourmet, including hundreds of

wines and dozens of San Diego’s top fine dining establishments and food exhibitors. Featured this year are several events and classes throughout the Downtown area. On Nov. 14, the Celebrity Chef Luncheon & AIWF (American Institute of Wine and Food) Big Bottle Wine Auction will be held at the San Diego Marriott Hotel & Marina, hosted by Chef Bernard Guillas of the Marine Room and artist Thomas Arvid, whose wine-inspired paintings have gained notoriety. Luncheon guests will be treated to a spectacular spread by Guillas, Gavin Kaysen of Café Boulud in New York City (formerly of El Bizcocho at the Rancho Bernardo Inn), Sondra Bernstein of Girl & A Fig in Sonoma and Jimmy Schmidt of Rattlesnake. A different winemaker, who will showcase wines from his or her portfolio, will host each table of ten. Single tickets and table sponsorships are available for the luncheon. A silent auction during the event will raise money for AIWF scholarships. Ted Allen, best known for his new Food Network Show “Food Detectives” and his role as the food authority on “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy,” will host two events at this year’s festival. On Nov. 14, he’ll teach a daytime cooking class at the Macy’s School of Cooking in Mission Valley, followed by a reserve and new release wine tasting aboard the Hornblower Inspiration yacht. Always a favorite at the festival is the Grand Tasting Event at the Embarcadero Park North behind Seaport Village, to be held Nov 15. In addition to its food and wine in abundance, the event will feature

an olive oil competition and tasting, a celebrity chef cookbook signing and a chef of the fest competition, wherein chefs vie for thousands of dollars of prizes and bragging rights. Last year, Gary Thompson of Viejas was named Chef of the Fest. The festival also features a variety of cooking classes and wine tasting opportunities. On Nov. 13, Chef Michael Antonorsi of Chuao Chocolatier will present “Arousing the senses with Chocolate and Vino,” followed by a World’s Best Sake Tasting course hosted by Young’s market. On Nov. 14, “Surf, Turf and Cocktails with Sam the Cooking Guy” await, as well as a “Top Chef AllStars” demonstration featuring a panel of chefs from the Bravo television series “Top Chef,” hosted by Brian Malarkey. Malarkey is a former series contestant and executive chef at the Oceanaire seafood room. Learn how to taste and classify wines with Master Sommelier Joseph Spellman, who will host a blind tasting with a panel of local sommeliers. The festival ends with a Sunday morning champagne tasting brunch bay cruise on a Hornblower yacht. Cooking classes take place at the San Diego Wine and Culinary Center, 200 Harbor Drive, and at the Macy’s School of Cooking at Mission Valley Mall. Prices for events vary. Packages are available and the preferred route for those wishing to take part in more than one event. For full event information or to purchase tickets, visit You must be 21 or older to attend.

Mai Blossom salon puts the green into pampering BY TRISH CLENNEY BROWN | THE BEACON

Mindy Nguyen has been going green for years. The licensed cosmetologist has practiced recycling, eating organically and doing everything she can to live a healthy, ecologically sound life. And now she operates Mai Blossom, Point Loma’s only ecofriendly salon, where clients can receive traditional salon services, such as haircuts and hair color, in addition to massages and body treatments – all with the use of organic ingredients and herbs. That means no trace of the traditionally vile ammonia smell of hair color in the salon. And no more of the other harmful chemicals found in most mainstream salons. Instead, Nguyen seeks out nontoxic products to use with her clients. In the continual searches for new products, her latest find has been a skincare line based on traditional Chinese medicine. Nguyen said she chose to locate her new salon in Point Loma because it is a wonderful community and she has many clients from the area. “I’m happy to be here,” she said. Not all her clients are as dedicated to an ecologically sound life as Nguyen, but she usually manages to educate them about its importance. The new salon combines Nguyen’s 20 years of salon experience with traditional Asian customs and healing practices to create a haven for its clients. The salon’s name illustrates

Nguyen’s ecological philosophy. The mai (pronounced “my”) blossom, Vietnamese for plum blossom, represents both beauty and longevity in Asian culture. Mai Blossom clients can expect world-class service and personalized attention in a tranquil, upscale setting filled with dark polished wood, punctuated with exotic orchid plants. The massage room, a secluded retreat that exudes serenity, has been described by a client as a lovely cocoon. Each client is welcomed to this peaceful, refreshing environment with tea and water flavored with organic citrus fruits. The salon offers an extensive list of services, including haircuts, ammonia-free hair color, signature facials, therapeutic massages, and waxing. In addition, it provides organic airbrush tanning, airbrush makeup, permanent makeup and body treatments. Mai Blossom is not quite complete yet, in Nguyen’s eyes. The salon hasn’t yet had its grand opening. The web site is not quite finished. But clients find nothing lacking about it. Longtime clients are pleased with the new surroundings and happy to see Nguyen in a setting that seems perfect for her. “The new salon is wonderful,” said longtime client Valerie Miller, who relies on Mai Blossom for several ongoing services, including haircuts, color, massages and waxing. “Mindy now has things her way; she’s selected everything and everybody here so that the environment reflects her philosophy.”

Miller also had Nguyen perform some permanent makeup and is very pleased with the result. She is a former Point Loma resident who still works in the area.

as a camp director at Cabrillo Rec for more than 10 years, said he’s disappointed the center might close. He said the after-school program he runs has grown from about 15 students to approximately 45 kids from five elementary schools. “I have a lot of parents bring their kids … they just like the programs,” Heyward said. While the facility’s programs may have grown over the years, Park and Recreation officials said the Cabrillo Rec Center is considered one of the smaller facilities and that its closure wouldn’t affect as many services, according to David Monroe, a deputy director for community parks with the city. He said athletic fields, basketball courts and some athletic programs would remain open, but no equipment would be available for use. “They would have to bring their own basketballs,” Monroe said. “These are tough times and no reduction or cut is an easy

PLNU women’s basketball program enters a rebuilding phase BY KEITH ANTIGIOVANNI | THE BEACON

The Point Loma Nazarene University (PLNU) women’s basketball team enters the 2008-09 season with a No. 11 ranking in the National Athletic Interscholastic Association (NAIA) after one of the program’s most successful campaigns last season. “We’re in a rebuilding year,” said PLNU head women’s basketball coach Bill Westphal. “No coach likes to admit that, but we have lost five seniors from last year and two other players. One got married and the other (is out) due to injury.” The Sea Lions open the season on the road in Memphis on Friday, Nov. 21 against Southern Nazarene

in the State Farm Music City Classic. PLNU posted a 29-3 overall record last season and won the Golden State Athletic Conference (GSAC) regular season title with a 19-1 record, along with the GSAC Tournament title. PLNU also qualified for the NAIA Tournament to finish the 2007-08 year ranked No. 3 nationally. Point Loma’s current roster is relatively inexperienced: one senior, Bonnie Zabinsky; three juniors, Danielle Arriola, Liah Ector and Colleen Planeta; and three sophomores, Alex Chatfield, Amanda Franz and Avery Lee. The roster also includes incoming freshmen Nicole Anderson, Jessie Ashton, Briana Colon, Ali-

cen Frankenberg, Pernilla Hanson, Kaitlyn Trotter and Brittany Stanley. Colon, Hanson and Trotter are all considered standout players. Hanson and Colon led Magnolia High School in Anaheim to the Southern California Division III championship. Hanson was the Orange League Player of the Year and Co-Southern California Division III Player of the Year. Colon was also named to the Orange League First team. Trotter earned All-League honors at San Dimas High School. “We have a decent freshmen class,” said Westphal. “They are still inexperienced but I like our three freshmen. It is not a question of if but when they will be good this year.”

Of the top three returning players, Arriola is injured. As a result, Westphal said the Sea Lions will rely heavily on Planeta and Ector. Planeta, averaged 10.7 points per game in 2007-08 and earned honors as First Team NAIA All-American and All-GSAC. She was also twice named GSAC Player of the week. Ector averaged seven points and five rebounds per game. Franz will also be counted on to contribute this year. She averaged more than five points per game and recorded 46 assists, 43 rebounds and 28 steals. Franz averaged 20 minutes per game last year but will get significantly more playing time this year, Westphal said.

The five seniors who left after last season are Kerra SuttonWodarski, Kati Hilbelink, Brittany Dove, Meghan McGuire and Angela Manjarrez. Sutton-Wodar-ski led the team in scoring and Hibilink was tied for most assists. “On paper we have a strong starting five, but if anything goes wrong we don’t have too much wiggle room,” Westphal said. The lack of experienced depth has concerned Westphal throughout the preseason. “This year, we might not have enough people at practice,” Westphal said. “Because of that, our first team is able to dominate our SEE PLNU, Page 9

SPORTS PLHS dominates Hoover in 55-13 win


Daily Dinner Specials • 4–7 pm Sun. 11/16/08 – Thurs. 11/20/08


The outcome seemed set after the first minute of the game. Hoover High School quarterback Elvis Collins threw a long pass intended for Domonic Brooks, but Point Loma defensive back Davis Callejon leaped in front for an interception to start the evening’s dominance by the Point Loma High School (PLHS) Pointers. Callejon finished the job on the next series when Point Loma quarterback Keegan Fitzgerald hit Callejon in the end zone from 31 yards. The rest of the game was more of the same. Once the dust had settled, PLHS had thoroughly manhandled Hoover 55-13. “It was a lot of fun,” said PLHS head football coach Mike Hastings. “We knew the kids had it in them to come out and play a really great game all around. It was a cast of everybody, with the defense setting the tone very early.” The game went pretty much the way the first drives indicated as the Pointers scored twice in the first quarter, three times in the second and twice again in the third period. Hoover finally got on the board in the final quarter, but by that point the Dogs had already put the game away, leading by 42 points. The coaches have been very pleased so far this season, despite a limited number of players returning to the varsity squad. It has been hot and cold for PLHS until now, but the team seems to be gelling. Many players who were lesser-known to fans at the beginning of the season are now seeing a lot more playing time. “Davis (Callejon) is starting to play really well in the secondary,” said Hastings. “He’s been a good receiver as well. Russell Young has started to blossom this year as a senior, understanding how to play very effectively (and having) his second 100-yard rushing game in two weeks.” One of the pillars of the team has been junior running back workhorse Leslie Rogers, who can be counted on to carry the ball into the end zone every game while racking up solid yardage week after week. Rogers leads the team, averaging 171 yards rushing per game for a total of 1,029 yards on the season. He also leads the team with an average of 14.6 points per contest. “Leslie became a much more well-rounded back the past few weeks,” said Hastings. “He’s always been a good runner, but now he’s doing what he needs to as a team player to help all his teammates look good. His unselfishness and maturity are helping on defense as well.” With the big win over Hoover behind them, the Pointers keep their playoff hopes alive. A win over La Jolla High on Friday, Nov.


second team. But when our starters get into an actual game they aren’t used to the competition,” he said. Westphal, now in his tenth season as PLNU head basketball coach, is coming off a GSAC Coach of the Year award. He has led the Sea Lions to six consecutive seasons of 20 wins and NAIA appearances. “It takes about 10 games to get into the flow of competition but we really don’t know what we have right now,” Westphal said.

14 will go a long way toward the momentum the team needs as it make another run at the postseason. “As a young team, it’s been great

to see them coming together,” said Hastings. “It’s fun to see us play on that higher level. It’s refreshing to see us hit our stride and it’s a good time to be getting on a roll.”

hen you think of fly fishing, San Diego’s beaches are the last image that comes to mind. Well, not so for Peter Piconi. This summer, Piconi opened So Cal Fly Fishing in Point Loma’s Liberty Station. Conveniently located at the north end of Liberty Station, the 2,100 sq. ft of retail space offers golf course views and plenty of grass to teach fly-casting for fresh or saltwater fish. This Saturday, his shop offers an event that features celebrities in the fly fishing world giving Power Point presentations on Sierra fly-fishing, fly-tying and fly-casting seminars. It’s worth a look!




Veronica May makes inroads into San Diego’s acoustical realm BY BART MENDOZA | THE BEACON

San Diego may not have the lofty cultural reputation of other major metropolitan areas in the U.S., but for a growing number of musicians, a move to this area is a precursor to bigger and better things. It’s been a trend for some time now. Examples include Rosie Hamlin of the 1960s legends The Originals and 1990s sensation Jewel, both of

whom originally hailed from Alaska. Meanwhile, Irish indie-rockers The Thrills were sent by their label to soak up some of the Mission Beach lifestyle. The latest addition to the growing list is singer-songwriter Veronica May, who performs at Humphrey’s Backstage Lounge on Nov. 14. Originally from a small farm town in Byers, Colo., in a graduating class of 20, May arrived in San Diego in



July 2006 with just a car packed with belongings. Her parents are musicians who had a band in the 1970s together — The Flatlanders. “I do believe that’s where it all stems from,” said May. “I think it is in the blood. My earliest memories are sitting on an amp listening to my mom and dad practice. This probably explains my hearing loss too,” she said. Ironically, though May is known as a terrific guitarist, her main instrument for 22 years was the piano. According to May, the move was obvious. “It’s hard to pack a piano,” May said. “My dad always wanted me to play guitar ever since I was a girl. I would pick his up and say ‘This hurts my fingers! Way too hard.’” A cross-country move led her to pick up the six-stringed instrument. “Before I left my dad’s house at the age of 17, he gave me his guitar,” May said. “It was the one he played when mom and him were still together. It meant so much to me. I knew I had to learn.” Within a few days she had already begun to pick out chestnuts like “Greensleeves.” Currently, May performs in the trio format with backing group the To Do List, featuring bassist Jeff Johnson and drummer Simon DasGupta. “I opted for the three-piece format because I have a small car,” May said. While she has recently considered expanding her group’s sound with a violinist, “I like the barebones sound of a trio,” she said. “I want to make sure the detail of the guitar is there and I have such a wonderful rhythm section that they make it all possible.” Though performing in San Diego for only two years, May has quickly risen to the top of the local music scene, a fact evidenced by her win

in the category of Best Acoustic Performer at the 2008 San Diego Music Awards. “I was surprised to hear I even got nominated,” she said. May said the award set the bar higher for her music. “It definitely does,” said May. “We are doing a lot of changes with our look and our sound at the moment and everything is really steering in a new direction.” Though still a fairly new act, May said she is thrilled with the progress made so far.

Choosing a Campanion Caregiver When looking for a company to provide you or your parents with qualified homecare, ask the following questions: Does the company provide a thorough assessment by an RN Geriatric Care Manager with the training and experience to handle the family and elders needs?

Correction Through Movement


t’s a known fact that exercise has countless benefits. But did you know that customized workouts can correct physical imbalances

and prevent injuries? There is way more to exercise than simply burning calories. An exercise program that is tailored to your specific needs can also repair weakness and strain from past injuries. The Gravity Training System is the newest and most effective way to add to your workout routine. It’s a cutting edge machine that uses your own body weight as resistance and is an excellent way of rehabilitating past injuries and strengthening your joints. At F-Max Fitness in Point Loma, they offer one-on-one training on the Gravity machine as well as group classes. The unique thing about this machine is that it can target very specific areas of the body with specialized exercises for different body needs. Try taking exercise to the next level by protecting and correcting your physique and your joints.
