City’s pipe replacement runoff irks PL neighbors BY SEBASTIAN RUIZ | THE BEACON

City contractors working on routine water main replacements have emptied hundreds of gallons of water into the street near the Point Loma community of Fleetridge over the past few weeks. The contractors have flushed the water through the new pipes to clean and test them for bacteria. “The reason you’ve been seeing so much water is because the water pipes failed the [bacteria] test,” said Jericho Gallardo, a city project manager. Residents questioned city representatives about the runoff at a Point Loma Community Planning Board meeting on Nov. 20, asking why city contractors waste water during a time when city officials are asking residents to conserve. Gallardo, who was not present at the meeting, said the dumping is part of a routine procedure and that the city currently has no program to recapture the water. The water is measured and

charged to the contractor, Gallardo said. The current project is about 90 percent complete, according to Gallardo. He said residents should not be seeing any more water flowing down the streets as a result of the pipe replacement. City officials attending Point Loma planning board meetings informed residents of a separate water main replacement project expected to start in 2010. That project would replace old cast-iron water mains along sections of Silvergate Avenue, Concord Street, Talbot Street and surrounding areas. Luis Scharr, project manager for the upcoming replacements, said service would be slightly interrupted while the city replaces the pipes sections at a time. Residents would be informed by mail about the date and time the services will be interrupted. City officials have begun informing the public to clear up potential conflicts and to warn residents ahead of time, he said.

The power of school spirit on television Point Loma High School (PLHS) students were featured Friday on KUSI TV’s “Alarm Clock Pep Rally” with on-air personality Mike Castellucci in preparation for that night’s football matchup between PLHS and Castle Park in the first round of the CIF Division III playoffs. According to PLHS vice principal Kevin Gormley, the PLHS/Castle Park matchup was chosen as the prep football game of the week by KUSI. The TV appearance apparently did the trick.

NEWS MB Aquatic Center plugs into solar-powered plan BY DAVE KENSLER | THE BEACON

The sun is going to shine brightly on the Mission Bay Aquatic Center (MBAC) when it begins to receive its monthly electric bills. Just a few weeks ago the center completed a three-month conversion project to solar power. “The goal from the beginning was to be 100 percent self-sustaining,” said center director Glen Brandenburg. “In other words, we produce through solar power all the electricity we need for the year.” According to Brandenburg, the conversion to solar power for the aquatic center, which mistakenly is often viewed as a separate company but instead is a joint venture between San Diego State University (SDSU) and University of California San Diego (UCSD), is a natural progression “We have been going green long before such a phrase was popular,” he said. “For example, our restrooms are lit by skylights. A number of years ago we started using super high reflectors for our lights and thus went from needing four light bulbs down to two per fixture. We purchased a high-efficiency washing machine.” The effort to install the solar electricity system began a few years ago and involved navigating through state and local rules and regulations. While the process has been more complicated due to nature of the center’s connection to the two universities compared to a small business owner or resident interested in the same conversion, it has made Brandenburg very knowledgeable on the subject, and he is quick to note a few key issues which apply to everyone. “Before you can install a solar system there needs to be an energy audit done to make sure you are already operating at a reasonably high efficiency level,” he said. “Otherwise then all you will do is waste solar power energy.” The cost comparison of conservation versus producing is also a factor. “It costs five times less to conserve one watt of electricity than it does to make it,” Brandenburg said, “which is another reason for having the energy audit ... to make sure you are doing your best with conservation efforts.” While either a business or individual consumer can install a solar system which gives them only partial energy support, say 30 percent or 50 percent, the aquatic center, in order to be 100 percent self-sustaining, had to do “zero out” its consumption, Sometimes during the year production may exceed consumption, and other times it may be the opposite. but at the end of the year, the

PARKING CONTINUED FROM Page 1

“You’re taking parking and sticking it out on the street,” said PCPB member Doug Cohen. “When you’re parked on the street … and you look and you’re careful, but every now and then you almost take out a bike.” Big trucks also often take up parking room when delivering to the recently opened Fresh and Easy market, further complicating the space situation. Several residents at Thursday’s meeting reiterated concerns.

energy used matches the energy produced. Because with solar power it is virtually impossible to produce exactly the right amount of electricity needed on a daily basis, you can “stockpile” extra electricity, and then apply it to other time frames during the year. “Fortunately in San Diego we have sunshine year-round,” Brandenburg said. “However, you still produce more electricity than you need during the summer months, so we will receive energy credits for those months. Also, remember, you do not produce energy when it is dark or as much in the winter months.” What if you produce more electricity than you need for the year even after all appropriate credits are applied? Then the utility company simply uses it elsewhere. You do not receive any money or rebate. Anyone who might be quick to complain about that scenario has to point a finger at the entire United States and not just a local power provider, according to Brandenburg. “In Europe they have what are called ‘feed-in-tariffs’ where people can be paid to produce electricity,” he said. “Right now they do not exist in the USA, although Florida is considering it.” In theory, this could mean a corn farmer, for example, could replace his entire crops with solar panels and then literally sit back and earn money while selling electricity generated from those panels to utility companies. There are other benefits to solar power, some not visible and others quite clear. “Our solar system will reduce C02 emissions by 82,000 pounds per year,” Brandenburg said. Another benefit might be in your electric bills. It has been estimated that solar systems installed on 25 percent of the buildings, rooftops, parking garages and similar structures could provide San Diego with 100 percent of its electrical needs. Solar power has the capability now to at least reduce peak load demands for electricity. This typically happens between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m., and most noticeably during the hotter summer months. This is also when electricity costs the most to use, because often more is being consumed than produced, so it has to be brought in from other sources. “This has the potential to save consumers billions of dollars over the long term,” Brandenburg said. “It is really quite simple. The sun comes up and energy is produced. As well, the energy from the sun is free. You can actually watch your electric meter go backwards.” The Mission Bay Aquatic Center is located at 1001 Santa Clara Place. For more information visit www.missionbayaquaticcenter.com Peggy Fischbeck lives in the area. She presented to the board more than 100 signatures from neighbors who are opposed to the project. “When we talked to the residents who signed those petitions … almost unanimously they said, ‘Where’s the parking?’ and followed that with ‘I don’t want it on my street,’” Fischbeck told PCPB members. The PCPB meets on the third Thursday every month at the Hervey/Point Loma Branch Library, 3701 Voltaire St. The board advises the city on land use and planning issues.

ommendation to ask the mayor to pursue a mandatory work furlough and user fee increases. Reaching into earmarked funds puts off the decision for a real longterm plan, an issue Faulconer said needs to be addressed. Faulconer sits on Budget and Finance Committee and currently chairs the Audit Committee. The Budget and Finance Committee reviews the annual budget, oversees capital projects, taxes and fees. The Audit Committee currently includes Faulconer, District 4 Councilman Tony Young and District 3 Councilwoman Toni Atkins. They’re charged with overseeing the city’s financial business practices and internal financial reporting. The city is currently accepting applications to add three members of the public to the committee because of a voter mandate to restructure the committee. “We know the news in next year’s budget is not going be better,” he said. “While these are not easy decisions, [they’re] keeping our focus on some of our core library services and giving [city council] more time to outreach with our community”, Faulconer said at Monday’s council meeting. The decision to protect the popular programs and services will come at a cost. Some of the money used this time to keep the libraries open was supposed to pay for library improvements. Mayoral spokesperson Rachel Liang said council’s decision could affect plans for the new proposed Downtown Central library, though it is unclear how. Comparing the city budget to managing household budgets, Liang said the money being tapped by the council may not be there next year. “They (council) financed the gro-

So it’s not putting us in good standing next year,” Liang said. She added that departments already stretched thin will have an estimated $53 million shortfall next year, she said. The city’s budget process for fiscal year 2010 starts in February of next year. Threats of closing libraries sparked a public outcry at several libraries across the city marked for closure — including Ocean Beach and University Community libraries. Clairemont branch library was also threatened with closure because it’s smaller and within a few miles of other libraries, including Pacific Beach branch and the newer North University Community branch, according to an Independent Budget Analyst report. One Ocean Beach business owner even offered about 5 percent of his two weeks of sales to help keep the Ocean Beach Library open. Isauro “Izzy” Elizondo, owner of Falling Sky Pottery, 1951 Abbott St., said he’s just trying to do his part. “I hope this effort would be followed by others in Ocean Beach. If local businesses are willing to put money into the local library, that would say a lot about the community itself,” he said. Faulconer said he would work the community to come up with additional ideas to make up for the budget shortfall. With less people spending because of mortgage crises and market dips, tax revenue coming to city coffers has gone way down. This most recent budget problems fall on top of the city’s ongoing underfunded pension obligations. The San Diego city attorney said recently at a City Council budget meeting that the pension deficit — now estimated at $2.8 billion — is another reason why the city has to make services cuts.

Budget cuts bring pain to community BY SCOTT PETERS

nated or cut back. Not surprisingly, the idea of closing libraries and curtailing city-sponsored recreation programs is unpopular. At a special Budget and Finance Committee meeting, residents from across the city conveyed their concerns to the council. They spoke movingly about how these measures would affect their lives. My office has received calls and e-mails from more than 800 constituents protesting the proposed cuts. I didn’t run for office to close libraries, or cut services, but I did know, when I took this job, that I would have to make tough decisions. If we don’t act quickly and decisively, the deficit will mushroom and the choices before us will only be worse, and we won’t be one step closer to solving the problem. The Independent Budget Analyst has raised questions about the mayor’s plan and outlined some possible options; we’re analyzing the data to ensure our choices are well-informed. For example, if we do need to close libraries for a period of time, we want to define the time frame and make sure we’ve first explored other options, such as reducing hours at all libraries to avoid closing any. Thank you to everyone who has contacted my office with ideas and concerns. We’re all in this together. Here at City Hall, the council, mayor and Independent Budget Analyst are working hard to find the least painful, most effective solution we can to this challenge. Thank you for your support.

ust a few weeks ago, the City’s Chief Operating Officer, Jay Goldstone, told the Budget and Finance Committee that revenues were significantly less than projected and that the City must take corrective action immediately to close a $43 million deficit. We need to reduce our expenses quickly to prevent a bad situation from getting worse. San Diego is one of a legion of municipalities across the nation and around the world facing daunting fiscal shortfalls. Economists across the board agree that the economy is not going to recover quickly from its current malaise. In our case, less than projected property, tourist and sales tax revenues constitute the majority of the shortfall. Though our projected $43 million budget deficit pales in comparison to the California and national deficits, $11 billion and $455 billion, respectively, our situation is serious enough that we’re all going to feel the pain as we close the gap between revenue and expenditures. Individual city employees and their families will be affected, since jobs will have to be eliminated, and residents will lose access to programs and services citywide. The mayor’s office proposes to reduce the Fiscal Year 2009 budget by 10 percent with a plan that eliminates 217 jobs (102 of those are currently vacant), closes seven libraries (including University City Library), reduces city parks’ staff hours and maintenance, and reduces the number of new hires at police and fire — City Council President departments.

Says library closures would signal a tax boost The planned closure of city libraries is the start of the tax increase campaign. Notice that no projects that impact developers were cut — downtown redevelopment, new downtown library, bridge to bay, et cetera. The cuts always involve services which directly impact the public. We taxpayers need a plan of action. For example, we need a promise to contribute to a recall for each elected public official who is involved in putting a tax increase on the ballot so the city can continue to pay for gold-plated pensions and health care for city retirees and continue to spend millions annually on city projects to support developers. Where is Steve Francis when we need him? Don French Point Loma — Editor’s note: The City Council on Monday granted a six-month reprieve on library and recreation center cuts and is expected to address the issue again in May.

Cutting library hours a more tolerable option I read with interest an article in the San Diego Union-Tribune, dated Nov. 12, where Andrea Tevlin, who works for the City Council, was quoted. As you know, Mayor Jerry Sanders says the city will save $1.7 million by closing some libraries. Tevlin says that by closing ALL libraries just 7½ hours each week the same amount ($1.7

It seems to me that the cost of bringing them back on line, in a few years, when the budget would allow, would be very costly, and they would still have to maintain the properties. As things are now, you have personnel in place who know each library and are trained for their positions, and more of our citizens have access to a library in their neighborhood. Many users have to walk to the library. Please, let’s do the smart thing in this situation and provide as much of the public as possible with library service. Hopefully the City Council has the power and the foresight to keep all of our libraries open and available.

More funding to take care of Mission Bay Park (Prop C) and no more out-of-control alcohol use on our beaches (Prop D) — finally, common sense prevailed. Councilmember Kevin Faulconer took a lot of heat for his leadership on both of these fronts, but in the end, the majority of San Diegans agreed with him. I appreciate the way he worked with the neighborhoods and business communities to get input and support. I know not everyone is pleased with the results, but how refreshing to see an elected official who doesn’t back down when things get tough.

Point Loma Nazarene University (PLNU) and University of California, San Diego (UCSD) have made the cut in Transworld Surf magazine’s top 10 surfing colleges in the U.S. The rankings were based on several criteria, including academic standards, life experience, quality of surf, cost and even partying. According to Transworld Surf’s website, UCSD appears to be ranked No. 3, with PLNU ranked No. 5 in the country. More than 160 surfers belong to the UCSD Surf Club, which was founded more than 30 years ago. COURTESY PHOTO | THE BEACON The club hosts surf-movie nights,

concerts, beach cleanups and other social events. UCSD has also been ranked a top surfing school by Surfer magazine and Sports Illustrated. PLNU, with its picturesque setting atop Sunset Cliffs in Point Loma, also consistently ranks high in the standings in the National Scholastic Surfing Association’s southwest college division. The Christian university is also home to a group called Surf ’n’ Serve — a program that allows students to enjoy the wave action and to help feed the local homeless population. — Staff report

A PEACEFUL OCEAN BEACH CHRISTMAS MUSIC CONTINUED FROM Page 8

“We always end up with more than enough volunteers to fill the slots,” Schiele said. “The only thing that limits us is the fact

that we only have so many hours to fill.” Opening day will feature performances from Megan Combs, Alyssa Jacey, Sirens Lure, Jeff Berkley, Jason Drummer, The Bass Clef Experiment and Eben Brooks. Following weeks will feature Joey Harris, Anna Troy, John Miller and Danielle Lo Presti.

“This is something I really look forward to each year,” said Berkley. “Playing music in OB is always fun. There is such a cool vibe to the place. But this is special. It’s the time of year when we’re thinking of those who don’t have much to look forward to, and it feels good to be able to help someone out.” Troy agrees. “What might seem like a small effort can have such a big effect on people’s lives,” Troy said. “I think it’s important that people know someone cares — especially this year.” Schiele said he is thrilled with the

response from the artists involved. “I’m always impressed by how many people want to be involved each year,” Schiele said. “After all, the artists have to find parking and lug their gear — all for a few minutes of stage time. It just goes to show what a giving music community we have here.” The Holiday Magic Food and Toy Drive takes place at the OB Farmers Market, Newport Avenue, on Wednesday, Dec. 3, Dec. 10 and Dec. 17 at 4 p.m. The event is open to all ages.

Make way for this year’s Christmas tree in Ocean Beach on Tuesday, Dec. 2. The treedecorating routine has becoming steeped in tradition, as this year marks the 29th anniversary of the much-anticipated holiday event that helps unite the community. “The only tree on the beach” will be installed at its usual location at the foot of Newport Avenue, joining the iconic OB Pier to create a stunning visual backdrop. This year’s tree is estimated at 50 feet tall and will be made available for decoration first to local Ocean Beach students and children from 9 to 11 a.m. on the morning of Dec. 4.

The kids flex some of their creative muscle by making their own ornaments, which range from Santa faces rendered from paper plates to festive holiday peace signs. “A Peaceful Ocean Beach Christmas” is this year’s theme, so ornaments are likely to have a New Age feel. After the children get their shot at decorating, the rest of the community is invited to join in and adorn the tree. Claudia Jack, chair of the Ocean Beach Town Council’s Tree Committee, feels the event captures the charm of the holiday. Seeing the whole community unite in its involvement with tree decoration “sort of adds the twinkle in your eye to see what people are SEE TREE, Page 13

doing,” she said. What makes this event so special, in part, is the degree to which it unites volunteers and businesses alike, said Jack. “It’s a great project because it involves so many people ... the city of San Diego, local homeowners, merchants, the town council and all of the volunteers,” said Jack. She added that the volunteerism is the most important thing. The process of obtaining and installing the tree begins early in the morning of Dec. 2 using the volunteer services of some local businesses. “Atlas Tree Service will cut it down and Hawthorn will [transport] it down, both free of charge,” Jack said, “Then we finally use Bob’s Crane Service to install the tree.” The tree was donated by a private resident in the San Diego area. It will be hoisted over palm trees — which themselves can reach heights of 40 to 50 feet — and installed into a slot in the ground that the OB Merchants Association installed a few years back. The process requires the help of 15 to 20 volunteers, without whom the event would not be possible, said Jack. The tree will be put in place, cleaned, decorated and beautified more than three weeks in advance of Christmas. “We just want to give ample time to really take advantage of it,” Jack said. The beautiful beach backdrop involving the pier, a fully decorated 50-foot Christmas tree and Santa can create quite the photo opportunity, according to Jack. “We install the tree so early because of the sheer

number of photographers who come to shoot the scenic tree backlit by the pier,” said Jack. “{They} in turn send their photos to different parts of the country,” Jack said. For event organizers and residents, the OB Christmas tree represents the celebration of a holiday of giving and compassion. For more information on the Ocean Beach tree, decoration opportunities and events, call (619) 224-4906 or visit oceanbeachsandiego.com.

The Ocean Beach Christmas Parade is set for Saturday, Dec. 6 beginning at 5:05 p.m., although the kickoff of the holiday season will be marked by the arrival of the Ocean Beach Christmas tree at the foot of Newport Avenue on PHOTO BY PAUL HANSEN | THE BEACON Tuesday, Dec. 2.

Prop 65 Newspaper Warning L-3 Communications; Linkabit, Advanced Products & Design and Engineering Services divisions operate a facility located at 3033 Science Park Rd. San Diego, CA 92121 which uses and emits chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm. We do not believe that any person is exposed to these chemicals at levels constituting a health or safety risk. However we have not made a formal determination that actual exposure levels are below the Proposition 65 "no significant risk" levels for carcinogens or "no observable effect" level for chemicals known to cause reproductive harm, and we have not performed a risk analysis to determine the precise amount of exposure that any individual would receive over a 70 year period. Proposition 65 therefore obligates us to provide this warning to potentially effected individuals. Further information may be obtained by contacting:
