City Council passes Bird Rock Station Frye casts sole dissenting vote BY ALYSSA RAMOS | VILLAGE NEWS

San Diego City Council members passed La Jolla’s Bird Rock Station project Tuesday, Oct. 14, by a vote of 6-1, despite sustained protest from a local group called No Third Story. The council’s one dissenting vote came from District 6 City Councilwoman Donna Frye. La Jolla Town Council President Darcy Ashley said she and other Bird Rock residents opposed Bird Rock Station — a three-story mixed-use project at 5702 La Jolla Blvd. — because it would “bust La Jolla’s PDO.” According to No Third Story, this project would allow other similar projects into La Jolla’s village, increasing the density in commer-

cial areas. Community members such as City Council District 1 candidate Sherri Lightner of La Jolla claimed that adding three stories to the area would disrupt Bird Rock’s character. But the project’s manager and architect said No Third Story’s argument is incorrect because the neighborhood contains existing three-story buildings near Bird Rock Station. Planning commissioners voted 40 in favor of the Bird Rock Station project last July, but citizens appealed the project to the city council.

Bishop’s tops La Jolla in polo showdown BY DAVE THOMAS | VILLAGE NEWS

Rivals The Bishop’s School and La Jolla High tangled in the water last Friday afternoon in La Jolla, with Bishop’s scoring a 9-8 double-overtime win over La Jolla in boys water polo action. After the first two periods of play, La Jolla High and Bishop’s were tied 1-1. The Vikings had four goals in the third quarter, which were answered by three goals from Drew Hoffenberg of Bishop’s.

Sweet Jane to show art at Simic in one-woman show BY ALYSSA RAMOS | VILLAGE NEWS

Actress Jane Seymour will exhibit a collection of her original artwork Oct. 17 through 19 in a one-woman show at La Jolla’s Simic Galleries. “It’s a wonderful opportunity to meet Jane Seymour and acquire one of her artworks,” said Heather Friedman, executive coordinator for Simic Galleries. Seymour will attend the weekend-long event with her original oil paintings, watercolors and

limited editions, Friedman said. “It’s a huge exhibition,” Friedman said, adding that the gallery will be filled with Seymour’s works.

quarter, Bishop’s responded and Justin Wolfe made the tying goal to knot the match at 8-8. The first period of overtime went scoreless. Then the Knights were able to squeak out a goal in the second overtime period to secure the victory. Hoffenberg finished with five goals for the Knights, while La Jolla’s scores were recorded by Hunter Gettelfinger, Joe Laird, James Hixson (two each) and one apiece from Adam Buechler and Augie Arcidiacono. Bishop’s head coach Jim Fales

noted, “Our team shot less than 30 percent for the day, but we were able to put it together in the fourth quarter and in OT. You have to give credit to the La Jolla goalkeeper and their defense. Our boys kept their composure even when we went down by four goals. That is the sign of a good team.” Fales credited the play of goalie Christian Ronald, along with Hoffenberg (five goals), Wolfe (game-tying goal in reguSEE POLO, Page 6

Merchants read writing on the wall Six on reform slate slide in over PLJ incumbents BY ALYSSA RAMOS | VILLAGE NEWS

Six of seven reform candidates beat Promote La Jolla’s incumbents Oct. 3 in a race to fill seven vacancies for the 2009 business improvement district’s board of directors. La Jolla business owners become automatic members of PLJ – the village’s business improvement district, a nonprofit entity – with added business tax assessments, but anyone can choose to pay dues and become an associate member.

The reform slate’s ongoing theme centered on the public’s mistrust of the current board. This year’s winners included incumbent George Hauer, owner of George’s at the Cove, and six reform slate candidates: Jennifer Clark, Glen Rasmussen, Shannon Turner, Brian Miller, Daisy Fitzgerald and Rick Wildman. The reform slate said they collectively decided to run after PLJ came out in favor of paid on-street parking, said La Jolla Town Council President Darcy Ashley. Members of the reform slate said they are against paid onstreet parking but the community’s issues run deeper, according to many new board members. “I think transparency is a nice word that’s used a lot,” Wildman

said. “It’s like every other public organization, and I think it’s very important that everything be done out in the open.” Last year’s election resulted in ongoing legal battles between two newly elected reform candidates and other PLJ board members, but Wildman said he doesn’t predict any repeat skirmishes. “Nobody objected to the results. There were no protests,” Wildman said. “Hopefully it’s going to be that way in the future. A lot of us live here and have lived here a really long time.” Although nothing is official until the first of January, Wildman – a prominent La Jolla SEE MERCHANTS, Page 5

New aquatic species invades SD bays BY NICOLE SOURS LARSON | VILLAGE NEWS

Add the Australian sea squirt, scientific name botrylid tunicate, to the ranks of non-native aquatic species that have invaded and fouled San Diego and California waters. The sea squirt, first found in San Diego attached to a Shelter Island fishing pier in 2007, was recently spotted for the first time in Mission Bay. The environmental damage from a new invasive species appears only gradually and can include extinctions of native species. As recently as last year, San Diego Bay had the dubious honor of hosting the only two identified Australian sea squirt infestations along the length of the West Coast. According to Sarah Cohen, a San Francisco State University marine biologist researching the aquatic invertebrate under a grant from California Sea Grant, no one has yet determined whether the new discovery indicates that the soggy lichenappearing organism is spreading rapidly or whether researchers are sampling waterways more intensively. What is clear is that this new invasive species has the potential to damage waterways, water distribution systems and aquaculture by gradually blocking water intake and outflow pipes and valves. The consequent environmental damage is not immediately obvious, but becomes apparent as the species develops sufficiently large breeding colonies. The rapidly reproducing sea squirts, or tunicates, invaded

Prince Edward Island off the east coast of Canada. There they caused the most harm to shellfish producers because they attach themselves to bivalves and shellfish nets, explained researcher Gregory Ruiz of the Smithsonian

They are able to grow almost unchecked. This gives them a big competitive edge ... LEIGH TAYLOR JOHNSON MARINE ADVISOR

Environmental Research Center in Edgewater, Md., in an article on the California Sea Grant College Web site. How the tunicate invasion will affect San Diego is not yet known, but invasive species create problems to ecosystems because of their lack of natural predators. “An invasive species is any creature taken from its home and its enemies and put in a new environment with no natural enemies to control them,” explained Leigh Taylor Johnson, a marine advisor with the University of California Cooperative Extension Sea Grant Extension Program. “They are able to grow almost unchecked. That gives them a big competitive edge over native species and upsets the balance of nature.” Johnson said researchers speculate that sea squirts arrived in

the U.S. in oceangoing ships’ sea chests — openings in a vessel’s hull encasing engine cooling intake pipes — and then are spread, like other invasive species that adhere to hulls, by small recreational boats that are trailered between lakes and rivers. Previous invasions of foreign aquatic species such as the freshwater Quagga and Zebra mussels have caused extensive damage to American waterways and water and irrigation systems. Both were introduced into the United States in the late 1980s, probably through discharge of ships’ ballast water, and have now spread throughout the west, adversely affecting reservoirs, dams, lakes and recreational boating and fishing. The Zebra mussels, through the buildup of their concrete-like excretions, have blocked municipal water and power plant cooling water intake systems that draw their supply from infected lakes and rivers, particularly from the Great Lakes, where the Zebra mussels were first introduced into the U.S. Clearing the blockages cost system operators millions of dollars. The tiny Quaggas are a particular concern, Johnson explained, because their shells are dangerously sharp, and they attach themselves in dense clusters and clog water pipes of all varieties. “Quaggas cause fouling issues and are voracious feeders. They’re eating up all the food and native species can’t get enough to eat, causing a problem for fishermen,” Johnson said. SEE INVADES, Page 7

University City canyon fire extinguished early Oct. 15 BY ALYSSA RAMOS | VILLAGE NEWS

San Diego’s infamous Red Flag Santa Ana wind conditions did not affect a portion of University City that caught fire about 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 15, according to National Weather Service officials. Firefighters received a call Tuesday morning that a canyon near eastbound Highway 52 was ablaze, said a San Diego Fire Rescue Department dispatcher. “They knocked down the fire at

8:48 [a.m.],” the dispatcher said. “There was no damage — it was just a small vegetation fire.” But Stan Wasowski, with the National Weather Service, said the coastal areas are not considered at risk and those areas are outside the Red Flag Warning area. “The Red Flag Warning is still going, just for the mountains and the valleys,” Wasowski said on Wednesday, Oct. 15. “It’s mainly based on the low relative humidity.” ■

They also cause problems for farmers and ranchers, too, she said, since they invaded agricultural drip watering systems in Imperial County, and may threaten the salmon spawning areas in the northwest. Once Quagga larvae invade the water supply system it can cost millions of dollars to eradicate them. While no currently known saltwater invasive species is quite as damaging as the Quagga or Zebra mussel, she explained, some saltwater invasives are actually carriers of harmful diseases. A key tool in the effort to halt the spread of invasive aquatic species is an aggressive campaign to educate and require owners of trailerable boats to clean their boats, trailers, vehicles, fishing and recreational equipment — and even clothing, footwear and pets that have been in contact with freshwater lakes or rivers — after each use and before transporting the boats to a new waterway that may not be infected. Since state and federal law have

Ask Aubrey


I’ve been thinking about a retirement plan, but can’t seem to get started. How should I begin?


A similar question appears in Ways & Means: Maximize the Value of Your Retirement Savings, for which I was a contributing author. First, action must replace thought. The finest thoughts and plans are worthless until executed. Second, each objective should be well-defined and clearly understood by everyone involved. Unless you really know and understand what you are trying to accomplish, you will probably not succeed. Good retirement objectives are generally stated in quantitative terms. A comment such as “I want a safe and secure retirement income” does not provide much guidance. It merely expresses a wish that, although very real to you, is hard to put into effective action. Only by attaching numbers to your objectives can you measure your progress. Third, each objective should have a measurable time limit for accomplishment. Make sure you prioritize your objectives and hold yourself accountable. Periodically review your progress and adjust your required actions. If you can’t keep on track, enlist the aid of an outside professional or coach to help. Most importantly, just do it!

These are selected questions Aubrey receives each Saturday on the radio.

now made transportation of Quagga and Zebra mussels illegal, the California Department of Fish and Game (DFG) has developed a set of recommendations for boat owners for cleaning boats to prevent the spread of invasive species. The guide to boat cleaning, titled “Don’t Move a Mussel,” is available on online. If a boat is found to be contaminated, DFG can quarantine the boat and fine the owner. Owners of larger vessels kept in marinas are advised to use appropriate anti-fouling paints on their hull bottoms and follow recommended hull maintenance procedures, which include cleaning every three to four weeks. Scott MacLaggan, marina manager of Sunroad Marina on Harbor Island, who follows environmental management issues closely, agreed that the larger vessels are

Prop 2 makes sense for human, animal health BY WAYNE PACELLE

Americans could barely believe their eyes when shown the sickening mistreatment of downer cows at a California slaughter plant earlier this year. An investigator for The Humane Society of the United States went undercover there and documented downed cows being brutalized in order to get them into the kill box. Government inspectors and plant management either missed the abuse or allowed it to persist. After the broadcast of the graphic video, the federal government was finally pressed into stopping the sale of meat from sick and crippled animals to consumers. This investigation shows us we cannot always wait for the government and the factory farming industry to protect animals from abuse or to guard us from food safety threats. That’s precisely why Proposition 2, the Prevention of Farm Animal Cruelty Act — which phases out the cramming of veal calves, breeding pigs and laying hens into small cages and crates — is so important and timely. The measure seeks to afford animals raised for food the opportunity to turn around and fully stretch their limbs — a matter of basic decency and an upholding of the principle that all animals deserve humane treatment, including those raised for food. It is inhumane to confine animals throughout their lives in cages or crates so small that they cannot turn around or stretch their limbs. On factory farms, veal calves are chained by the neck and confined in tiny stalls; pigs are kept in metal cages called gestation crates that are barely larger than their bodies; and several hens are crammed into a battery cage with each bird having less floor space than a letter-sized sheet of paper. Jamming eight birds into a barren wire cage for their entire lives probably feels for them like it would for eight people if they were indefinitely crammed together in an elevator. The greatest nation in the world, with the most innovative farmers, can do better than this. Family farmers know food quality is enhanced by more humane farming methods, and they know there is a balance between animal care and economics. And major retailers like Wolfgang Puck, and even Burger King and Safeway, are increasingly demanding more humanely-produced food and phasing in the

sale of products from farmers who do not confine animals in tiny cages. The prestigious Pew Commission on Industrial Animal Production — an independent panel chaired by former Kansas Governor John Carlin and that included former U.S. Agriculture Secretary Dan Glickman and leading veterinarians and farmers — recently issued a report concluding that Prop 2 includes “the types of modest animal welfare public policy improvements that the Commissioners recommend implementing.” In its report, the Commission said, “Practices that restrict natural motion, such as sow gestation crates, induce high levels of stress in the animals and threaten their health, which in turn may threaten human health.” Science has confirmed what common sense already knew: cramming animals into filthy, unsafe cages leads to higher rates of diseases such as Salmonella that can affect people. It’s on the basis of human and animal health concerns that the California Veterinary Medical Association, the Center for Food Safety, the Consumer Federation of America and the Union of Concerned Scientists have endorsed Prop 2. Arizona and Florida voters approved ballot initiatives to phase out these types of crates. And lawmakers in Colorado and Oregon have done the same. The European Union has already passed legislation against veal crates, barren battery cages and gestation crates, and these regulations now apply to all of its 27 nations. These modest reforms won’t be costly to implement. The egg industry’s own California-based economist reports that producing cage-free eggs costs less than one penny per egg more. This ballot measure gives farmers until 2015 — a full six years — to phase in more humane production practices. We have long known that factory farms produce enormous volumes of waste that pollute the air and water. It is indisputable that they cause immense suffering to animals, and the evidence is overwhelming that they jeopardize food safety and public health. Let them know that California can do better by voting “yes” on Prop 2. — Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO of The Humane Society of the United States, was in La Jolla last week for a benefit for Prop 2; ■

Having experienced a packed theater at the Old Globe’s production of Clare Booth Luce’s 1936 social satire, “The Women,” Wednesday, Oct. 1, and having observed houses only half-full elsewhere in recent weeks, it is apparent that word of mouth says, “Spend your entertainment dollar here.” Word of mouth speaks the truth. This intelligent and hysterically funny production, staged with wit and glee and deep understanding by Globe resident artistic director Darko Tresnjak, is perfectly cast with 15 elegant and accomplished actors (no men appear) who certainly know their way around an era. Moreover, the production team — scenic designer David P. Gordon, costume designer Anna R. Oliver, lighting designer Matthew Richards, sound designer Paul Peterson and music director Ron Colvard — knocks itself out to create a visual and aural feast. The costume budget alone might account for the entire yearly budget of one of the city’s struggling theater companies. Such indulgence on the part of one of San Diego’s top theaters may be the palliative needed for these troubled times, and so, arts lovers, indulge yourselves. Before the evening ends, everyone sings, and so will you. Tresnjak firmly fixes “The Women” in time, beginning and ending each act with period music sung by musical theater veteran Nancy Anderson, who then steps into the action as protagonist Mary Haines’ friend, Miriam. Also a veteran of numerous Broadway musicals, Kate Baldwin portrays Mary, whose husband strays with a blonde shop girl (Kathleen McElfresh), whom he sets up in an apartment. All of Mary’s friends are wise, but a manicurist spills the beans. Mary’s mother (Linda Gehringer, who lends just the needed ballast) wisely advises Mary to say nothing and do nothing, but Mary listens instead to her more experienced friends, the ruthless Sylvia (Heather Ayers), Nancy (Amanda Naughton), Peggy (Amanda Kramer) and Edith (Amy Hohn). Ruth Williamson is spot-on as the much-married Countess de Lage, and child actor Kayla Solsbak is fine as Little Mary, the one truly

affected by her parents’ divorce. The supporting company — Mary-Pat Green, Jenn Harris, Aaryn Kopp, Aimee Nelson and Blair Ross — is marvelous and provides some of the production’s most delicious visual gags in a variety of roles that include the women’s hairdressers, couture store models, saleswomen, maids and attendants. Pay attention: dresses sometimes reappear on other women. Luce’s comedy is definitely a period piece, a time in which wealthy, pre-World War II socialites are as if trapped in amber, economically dependent; expected to act in proscribed ways; and slaves to their class and role expectations. One experience of Tresnjak’s brilliant production may not be sufficient. It is not only beautiful, it is wise. “The Women” continues at 7 p.m. Sundays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays; 8 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays; and 2 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, through Oct. 26 at the Old Globe Theatre, Balboa Park.

Each element was in place: a perfect, end-ofsummer evening; the majestic Louis Kahndesigned buildings framing the bandshell where the San Diego Symphony under Thomas Wilkins was scheduled to perform, along with guest artist John Pizzarelli’s jazz interpretations with his trio (there were actually four participants). Behind them, the magnificent ocean with the sun slowly setting as patrons were seated to dine luxuriously on elegant boxed suppers (a form of surf and turf), after having been treated to tours of the world-famous Salk Institute, where Nobel Prize-winning scientists work ceaselessly to increase knowledge and solve medical mysteries. A recent $20 million grant from Ted Waitt and a number of other substantial gifts will ensure the continuation of work being done there. This was the 13th year of Symphony at Salk and it was graced with the usual array of world-renowned researchers, prominent local philanthropists and even a movie star, who consented to a photo but was concerned about being taken from just the right angle. Former La Valencia chef Judd Canepari, now with the Rancho Bernardo Inn, was there with his bride, which just goes to prove that chefs are the new rock stars.

Harriers stride to victory in tourney and league races BY DAVE THOMAS | VILLAGE NEWS

With league and state races not too far away, local cross country squads are tuning up for some big runs to come. At the recent Saints Small Schools Invitational at Morley Field, The Bishop’s School girls and boys teams had strong outings, with results that promise close and exciting competition when the Division IV teams return to Morley Field for next month’s CIF finals. The Bishop’s varsity girls finished a strong third behind Coronado (Div. IV) and Clairemont (Div. III) over a 2.84-mile course. Laura Wyatt (fifth) ran the first part of the race with Lauren Collins (ninth) and Naomi Wagner (10th), pulling her teammates to a higher level of performance. Wyatt and Elizabeth Schulze (12th) ran comfortably early on, gathered momentum and accelerated to the finish line. Freshman Noelle Herring (19th) had a breakthrough race with a 19:06 time. Sammy Silva of Our Lady of Peace won the varsity race in a fast 16:22.

The Bishop’s junior varsity girls had a great team effort, finishing second overall to OLP and first among Division IV teams. Michelle Wu won the race in 20:42, followed closely by Charlotte Brutten and Cara Chesney. In boys varsity action, Bishop’s had another strong top-to-bottom performance with a third-place finish behind St. Augustine and La Jolla Country Day. All of the top five Bishop’s scorers were under 19 minutes on the long 3.12-mile layout. Team leader Henry Su finished 10th with an impressive time of 17:29, while Will Wilde Botta powered to a 16th-place finish in 17:46. Tyler Davidson (29th) and Hoagie Hoagland (30th) ran together from start to finish, while Chris Kuntz, Zach Lana and Nick Magnusen all turned in solid races. Eamonn McCarey (Clairemont High) won the varsity race in 16:43. In the boys junior varsity race, Daniel Lupin paced himself wisely to a respectable 24th-place finish in 20:36. David Cohn and Jack Sailer also performed well with

energetic efforts for the Knights. Meantime, La Jolla Country Day (LJCD) School’s junior varsity boys squad kicked things off for the Torreys with a second-place finish among 11 Division III, IV and V schools, and a first place in Division IV. Chase Mertz, Jake Mack and Miles Himmel led the way with Top 10 finishes (seventh, ninth and 10th, respectively). William Craycroft (21st) and Sage Hagstrom (41st, running his first cross country race) rounded out the scoring. Freshmen Johnny Edman (55th) and Aaron Mak (72nd) showed improvement as they gained valuable racing experience. LJCD’s varsity girls squad raced next and continued to show tenacity and improvement, according to head coach Scott Sanders. The girls finished eighth overall and fifth in Division IV. Freshmen Sam Staszak and Kaitlin McCallum (14th and 16th in Division IV) led the way for the Lady Torreys, with captain Sasha Binderow (24th), Maggie Taylor (28th) and Lisa Felber (33rd) completing the scoring. Chanelle Herring (35th) was

LJCD’s final runner across the line. LJCD’s varsity boys, finally racing as a full, (mostly) healthy team, came in with high expectations and did not leave disappointed, according to Sanders. Among the 19 Division III, IV and V teams, the Torreys finished second overall to a strong St. Augustine team, and first in Division IV. Leading the way were captains Alex Poyhonen (sixth, 17:07) and Dennis Roth (eighth, 17:16), with Alex Fleischhacker (15th) and Lee Klitzner (20th) also finishing under 18 minutes. Noah Wolfenzon (43rd) completed the scoring, with Eric Blodgett (46th) not far behind. Seventh man Phillip Poyhonen (58th) also ran well. Elsewhere, La Jolla High’s girls team easily defeated Mission Bay

and Hoover in action last week. Lady Viking Nihal Kayali was the winner in 19:52 on the Morley field 3-mile course. In the junior varsity race, La Jolla topped both Mission Bay and Hoover, 15-50. La Jolla’s Christie Richmond captured top honors for the Lady Vikings. On the boys side, La Jolla defeated Hoover (24-31) and Mission Bay (17-44) in action last week. In the JV races, La Jolla topped Hoover (16-49) and Mission Bay (15-50). The top five la Jolla varsity runners were Bryant Hammershaimb, Michael Conroy, Andrew Farkas, Alex Eve and Spenser Mays. The top five JV runners were Andrew Jaye, Umi Hoshijama, Shawn Devit, Ferdinand Ekman and Benny Ghelerter. ■

Bishop’s gridders score win; LJCD, UC fall BY DAVE THOMAS | VILLAGE NEWS

The Bishop’s School football team continued its winning ways last Friday with a 29-6 victory over Escondido Charter. Bishop’s (4-2) scored 29 straight points in the second quarter to put the game away. Freshman QB Joey Moreno was 9 of 15 for 154 yards and two TDs, running back Kyle Jester had seven carries for 81 yards and Mike Jensen tallied three carries for 37 yards and a TD. Micah Seau added a 54-yard TD reception and 10 tackles (two sacks) on defense. Justin Peabody tackled the punter in the end zone for a safety, kicked 3 extra points and added a 32-yard TD reception, while Eric Owens tallied five tackles and a sack. “I think our league is one of the toughest in the state for our division,” Bishop’s head coach Mike David said. “Every game will demand our best effort.” Bishop’s will host Francis Parker this Friday, Oct. 17, 7 p.m. at La Jolla High’s Edwards Stadium. Elsewhere, while it was not as painful as the week before on the scoreboard, La Jolla Country Day (LJCD) School suffered its second straight gridiron setback last Fri-

day night, dropping a 23-13 decision to Boulder City (Nev.). In the loss, LJCD lost QB Derek Hatfield to what was feared to be a fractured ankle. Backup QB Rubin Pena then took over the signal-calling duties until he went down with an ankle injury. In stepped thirdstring QB Grayson Tucker, who gave a tremendous effort, according to head coach Jeff Hutzler. LJCD also lost wide receiver Shonta Chiloux to a broken wrist. Down 17-7 at the half, the Torreys battled back in the third quarter to make it close at 17-13 before a fourth-quarter TD pass put the game away for Boulder City. “Running back/linebacker Montell Allen, showing a ton of pride and heart, was the glue that held the team together as he played a terrific game on both sides of the ball,” Hutzler said. Allen finished with 127 yards

rushing and two TDs on 18 carries. Allen also had a big game defensively, notching 14 tackles, while teammates Junior Togiaso (six tackles, blocked PAT), Blake Mohesni (seven tackles) and Doug Rogers (seven tackles) also played well. LJCD will host Sage Hill this Friday evening at 7 p.m. In junior varsity action, LJCD rolled to a 35-0 victory. Finally, University City High suffered its fourth loss of the season with a 44-34 defeat at the hands of Scripps Ranch last Friday afternoon. Skyler Dougherty had a great game for the Centurions, tossing five TD passes on the day. Federico Giocamelli and Willie Meadows each caught a pair of scores for UC, which is back in action when it meets Serra High this Friday. ■

Salk Institute appoints Brody new president BY ALYSSA RAMOS | VILLAGE NEWS

Officials at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies announced Monday that they have appointed Dr. William R. Brody, retiring president of Johns Hopkins University, as the institute’s new president. “He has an incredible record as an academic leader, having served the last 12 years at Johns Hopkins University,” said Mauricio Minotta, media liaison for the Salk Institute. “And he has a stellar background as a research scientist and business leader as well.” Brody is a member of the National Academy of Engineering and the Institute of Medicine. As president, Brody will oversee 870 staff members and research

teams, Minotta said. “He also has a great record as a fund-raiser,” Minotta said. While at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, Brody raised $3.4 billion for the university in a capital campaign. “He will officially start March 1 [2009],” Minotta said, adding that the institute’s interim president will continue until that time. Jonas Salk, M.D. — a discoverer of the polio vaccine — founded the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, La Jolla in 1960 on land the city of San Diego gave to the doctor for his research. The nonprofit institute at 10010 N. Torrey Pines Road continues to research diseases. For more information about Salk, go to ■

Stem cell project changes its name BY ALYSSA RAMOS | VILLAGE NEWS

A La Jolla entity comprising four area research institutions coming together to research stem cells has changed its name. The former San Diego Consortium for Regenerative Medicine (SDCRM) changed its name last month to honor a South Dakota philanthropist who donated millions to research stem cells. T. Denny Sanford of Sioux Falls donated $30 million to SDCRM, said SDCRM Vice President Louis Coffman. “The board of directors decided to change our name in recognition of the gift,” Coffman said. In recognition of the donation, the consortium is now known as the Sanford Consortium for Regenerative Medicine (SCRM). Sanford pledged $10 million immediately, and then $2 million for ten years. The consortium received Sanford’s $10 million and will start receiving $2 million beginning next July, according to Coffman. “Mr. Sanford is going to join

the board, which is terrific. He’s articulated real support,” Coffman said. Sanford’s funds will be combined with a $43 million grant awarded by the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) to build and equip a facility for scientists from the consortium’s four institutions, allowing them access to collaborate on world-class stem cell research. SCRM has initiated plans to build a research center. The consortium will begin building at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) in Jan-

uary of next year. The SCRM project will bring together four research science centers, including the Burnham Institute for Medical Research, the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, the Scripps Research Institute and UCSD. The four groups initiated SCRM, a nonprofit organization funded by California’s Stem Cell Research and Cures Initiative (Proposition 71) in 2006. The consortium recently released a draft environmental impact report (EIR) for a 135,000-square-foot research facility to be located at UCSD. According to SCRM communications liaison Richard Ledford in a previous interview, the groups that formed SCRM chose to build the research building at the 7.5-acre site located at the northwest corner of North Torrey Pines Road and Torrey Pines Scenic Drive because it is relatively close to all four members. UCSD owns the land, which SEE STEM CELL, Page B·5

Residents will celebrate the 80th birthday of an institution on Saturday, Oct. 18, when county and city officials join neighbors to explore the roots of the Ocean Beach Library — the oldest in San Diego County. The Ocean Beach Library began as a grassroots literary effort nearly 100 years ago but was formally dedicated as part of the city’s library system in October of 1928. While the day belongs to the OB Library of today, organizers said the gala will be made richer because of the local origin of efforts to quench the thirst for knowledge beginning in 1909. The celebration, set to begin at 11 a.m., will feature historical reflections, speeches, music and activities for children, according to library officials. “This really is designed to help us remember what has gone into this facility … It has been in use continuously since its dedication,” said Matt Beatty, manager of the OB Library. “Most longtime Obecians have grown up with it, and it’s very much a part of their everyday lives since so much of

the rest of the local landscape has changed.” The event will kick off with the bluegrass sounds of the ZZmyzzy Quartet, which will begin performing at 11 a.m., followed by the formal ceremonies at noon and an introduction by Master of Ceremonies Ned Titlow, vice president of the Ocean Beach Historical Society. Local Girl Scouts will make a flag presentation, followed by addresses from several local and county officials. A magic show for children will begin at 1 p.m. inside the library, along with more music and a ceremonial tree planting, according to Beatty. The event will fete not only the birth and growth of the library at its current location at 4801 Santa Monica Ave. but also the efforts to extend literary outreach that began nearly two decades before. Titlow, who arrived in Ocean Beach in 1929 as a grammar school student, said historical records show a group of OB residents began a grassroots effort in 1909 to begin building wooden shelves at the first informal SEE LIBRARY, Page B·4

The Ocean Beach Library, celebrating its 80th anniversary Oct. 18, looks much as it did many years ago.



BUSINESS & FINANCE Proposed changes to port’s master plan spur opposition BY SEBASTIAN RUIZ | VILLAGE NEWS

San Diego Bay Marine Terminal union workers get up early on Saturdays. They go door-to-door as part of a campaign to stop a local development company from changing the way a major San Diego Bay terminal operates. Brian Whatley, president of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union Local 29, said the redevelopment initiative that is Proposition B on the November ballot would threaten about 400 jobs the local chapter represents. The average annual pay for a Longshore union worker can range from $90,000 to $120,000. That includes overtime, employment benefits and salary, he said. The union organized the door-to-door campaign that has already cost

45,000 jobs could be indirectly affected by the initiative. “It’s just not possible for us to load the type of cargo that we do … with a 40-foot deck above us. You just can’t move that type of equipment around,” he said. Over the last few months, proponents of the redevelopment initiative were able to gather the 60,000 signatures needed to begin the initiative process. Port of San Diego would also have to pay the estimated $10,000 to verify the signatures. The initiative put forward by San Diego Community Solutions LLC would change the port’s master plan to allow commercial developments, such as hotels and restaurants, on port-controlled tidelands. Plans would include building a deck above the area. The Tenth Avenue Marine Terminal is near the foot of Harbor Drive. Port officials, local union workers and some businesses have joined together against the proposed change under the banner “Save our Working Waterfront.” The group comprises Port Tenants Association members and others opposed to the measure. Frank Gallagher, a principal partner in the redevelopment company backing the initiative, said redevelopment would add more jobs, not threaten them.

And with the possibility of a brand-new sports venue, hotels and hospitality industry business attracting tourists, opening up the terminal to private development would also bring lots of tax and rent money into city coffers at no cost to the public, he said. “These are supportive uses that would be allowed on this terminal, so long as they didn’t conflict with priority use,” Gallagher said in a July interview. There are no solid plans, however, depicting exactly what would be built, he said. A superior court judge ruled in September that San Diego voters would decide in November whether a private firm can redevelop about 100 acres of terminal now under Port of San Diego control. An appellate court delivered another blow to opponents of the measure a few days later when the court denied an appeal by the Port of San Diego to stop the initiative from reaching ballot. The court cited lack of a “clear and compelling” reason to stop it from going to voters, court documents said. Port officials also tried to change

the language on the ballot last month because the original ballot language was “misleading,” port officials said. The appellate court rejected that move as well. The text that should now appear on the November ballot would read: “Shall the San Diego Unified Port District’s Master Plan be Amended by the Adoption of ‘The Port of San Diego Marine Freight Preservation and Bayfront Redevelopment Initiative?’” according to court documents. If voters pass the measure, any construction would have to be vetted by the California Coastal Commission, according to a letter from the commission to the port. However, so long as any redevelopment complies with state environmental laws, nothing short of California Coastal Act violation can stop redevelopment. “Whatever is going to get built there is going to be in compliance with regulations and with the coastal commission … no different than what you already see right across the street from Petco [Park],” Gallagher said. The most recent debate between sides took place Friday, Sept. 12 at the South Eastern Economic Development Council’s annual summit. Panelists included Gallagher, representatives of the Imperial Labor Council, Port officials and Marine industry contractors.

library site, known as the Sutcliffe Building, on Abbott Street near Santa Monica Avenue. This original site was near where the Ocean Beach lifeguard station now stands, said Titlow, 84. “It wasn’t necessarily ideal,” Titlow said. “There was a merrygo-round and skating rink there where they would play all this hurdy-gurdy music while people were trying to concentrate on reading.” According to historical records, the humble reading site took on more vigor in 1916, when Kate Spani, the principal of Ocean Beach Elementary School next door, led a charge for city backing and began leading the charge to raise funds to furnish the reading room. Titlow said the effort to formalize a library began in 1927, when the city purchased a 100by-100-foot lot at the current site


on the corner of Santa Monica Avenue and Sunset Cliffs Boulevard. Records indicate the cost of the lot, building and furnishings was just under $19,000. “It was very popular right from the beginning,” Titlow said. “It was one of the community centers, not only as a library but for all kinds of get-togethers until after wartime (World War II). “I remember in grammar school when I started at Ocean Beach Elementary. Since we were right next door, the teachers would take us kids over to get our library cards. And I still remember Margaret Rankin, the librarian. She was a dignified but lovely lady. She kept us respectful but happy.” Beatty confirmed Rankin’s lengthy tenure as head librarian in Ocean Beach from the 1920s until her retirement in 1959. Change is a constant, according to library officials, who are not only savoring the history and subsequent growth of the facility but also looking ahead.

According to Beatty, the last expansion of the OB Library took place in 1966. Plans are now on the table for another renovation, but no formal funding has been allotted to move the project forward. “We’re hoping to move forward on this renovation,” Beatty said. “We just don’t know when yet. The plan was redone last year, and the city did purchase the property next to our current site for the renovation. But aside from the $1.5 million for the property, nothing else has been approved as yet.” For more information about the Ocean Beach Library’s 80th anniversary celebration, call the Friends of the Library, (619) 2234900, or the library, (619) 5311530, or visit ■ The Ocean Beach Library used to be framed by tall trees (right).

INTERIORDESIGN’08 INTERIORDESIGN/FINEART Home for the Holidays TIPS FOR STRESS-FREE ENTERTAINING The pressures of the holidays can take a toll even on the most seasoned host or hostess. Most people look forward to reconnecting with friends and loved ones, but the stress can be overwhelming. This year, ease the anxiety and truly enjoy the company of your guests and the joy of the season. Here are some easy expert tips on just how to do it. IT’S NEVER TOO EARLY TO START PREPARING Start preparations at least a month in advance and don’t forget to create a check list. Go room by room and create a festive, cozy atmosphere throughout the entire house. Start with your entry hall or foyer, often one of the most overlooked rooms in the house. This is where you first welcome guests, and first impressions matter! Make it inviting by removing clutter and filling the space with holiday cheer. PLAN ROOM BY ROOM In the living room, create an open environment that is conducive to conversation and interaction. The living room is where most guests gather, so create a space that encourages guests to mingle, chat, and entertain themselves — without constant guidance from the ever-busy hostess. Finally, focus on the dining room. An elegant, sophisticated dining room reminds guests that holidays are a special occasion. And after spending hours cooking in the kitchen, make sure the tabletop highlights your outstanding culinary efforts. The dining room table should be the focal point and complete the look of elegance. The table itself should be finely finished and timeless, and can also coordinate with changing décor trends. And an easy tip: always set the table a day or so in advance and enlist the help of your children. This ensures one less task to complete the day of your event.

He is an artist who brings humanism to contemporary art. Orlando’s images are drawn from his psyche; they are felt rather than seen. Portraying the contemporary heart and soul, his art speaks eloquently with the same gentle intensity and quiet strength as its creator. As an artist whose genuine instincts motivate his search for artistic challenge and expression, Orlando is an acknowledged innovator who gives free rein to his natural instincts. His innovative creations and dramatic artwork serve as a vehicle for thought and reflection, his unique portrayal of the human condition lends dignity and balance to our existence. In the tradition of the great 20th Century Modernist painters, Orlando Agudelo-Botero has, with the stroke of his brush, recast the Sun as potent a visual metaphor as possible: the iconic symbol of realized human potential. This theme informs and illuminates the cycle of paintings that comprise his latest body of work “The Sunny Side of Life.” Orlando offers clear evidence that art has the possibility to uplift the objective conditions of the human experience, as each painting in itself is a compelling argument for choosing a positive outlook despite the fluctuating moods and conditions of our lives. A meditation on individualism, “The Sunny Side of Life” resounds with a steadying calm. “Enlightenment in our individual lives,” the artist seems to whisper, “is cultivated from within and then borne outward as a light to be shared collectively with the rest of the world. We carry in each one of us,” Orlando affirms, “the capacity for a sunlight that we can use to illuminate clear, decisive paths for ourselves and then impart that very light back into the world, forwarding a cycle of human life as unending and timeless as time itself.” — Orlando Agudelo-Botero


SCRM will lease from the college for 52 years. The proposed building consists of four aboveground levels and one subterranean level. The site would include 418 parking spaces and about 3 acres of landscaping. “We filed the EIR and hope the EIR is certified by the regents in November at the meeting,” Coffman said. “And then we’ll go to the California Coastal Commission in December so we can begin construction in January.” Officials said the building would include research laboratories, office space and building support space. “Moreover, the building will house core facilities of a quality and scope more substantial than could be supported by any member alone, including robotics, disease models, imaging and protein and nucleic acid facilities,” an SCRM press release reported. For more information, call Louis Coffman, (619) 225-1249, or e-mail The draft EIR period expired Oct. 9. But copies of documents can be viewed online or at the UCSD Physical Planning Office.

Farewell to Paul Newman, a class act every corner, every burg, every remote area where a movie It’s a worldwide event when a screen can be erected. major movie star dies, as did Paul Paul Newman had three blessNewman last month at 83. Newings going for him. Firstly, he was man had been an American film born a beautiful and handsome star with fans around the world in man, with electric blue eyes that BY JAMES COLT HARRISON | VILLAGE NEWS

fascinated his fans. Secondly, he was born with an inherent talent. This natural talent served him well and gave him a sustained career for more than 50 years. And thirdly, he was created with an inborn concern for his fellow man that spurred him to create many charities over the years. Most people are fortunate if they have only one of those attributes. But Newman took his blessings in stride, did not get an inflated head over them and often pooh-poohed his good looks. Baby Newman arrived in Shaker Heights (Cleveland), Ohio on Jan. 26, 1925. His mother was of Slovakian stock from AustriaHungary. She was a Catholic. Newman’s dad was Jewish and ran a sporting goods store. Paul and his brother Arthur, who preceded him in death, were raised by their mom. Arthur also entered show buiness as a pro-

ducer and production manager in later years. At the young age of 7 Newman made his stage debut in a school production. His acting aspirations were interrupted after graduation in 1943, when he entered the Navy in 1944. He was trained as a radioman and a rear-gunner. His life was saved during the Battle of Okinawa in 1945 when he was held back from joining the fray. After the Navy, he attended Kenyon College, Yale and the Actors Studio. While in New York he made his Broadway debut in William Inge’s hit play “Picnic,” with Kim Stanley and Janice Rule. When it was later turned into a movie, it starred Kim Novak and William Holden. Newman made his way out to Hollywood for his first movie, “The Silver Chalice,” in 1954, a hilariously bad film about a slave (Newman) freed to fashion a chal-

Paul Newman’s stunning looks were backed by acting talent.

ice to be used at the Last Supper. The sets were cheesy and “modern” instead of a period design. Pier Angeli was the only authentic Italian in the film, and Americanas-apple-pie Virginia Mayo was miscast as well as menacing Jack Palance and cowboy Lorne Greene, for heaven’s sake, who played Romans! It’s a miracle Newman’s career didn’t end with this inaugural movie. Fortunately, Newman’s talent saved him, and he was cast in much better films in the coming years. His hit films in the late 1950s and early ’60s were “The Long, Hot Summer” (1958), “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” with beautiful Elizabeth Taylor (1958), “From the Terrace” (1960), “Exodus” (1960), “The Hustler” (1961) and “Hud” with sizzling Patrica Neal in 1963. His career went into high gear Newman with his friend and co-star Robert Redford (right) at the recent 25th when he made “Cool Hand Luke” anniversary of the Sundance Film Festival. (1967), “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” (1969) and “The Sting” (1973). After marrying his wife, actress Joanne Woodward, he directed her in several popular films and starred in a few of them as well. They were “Paris Blues,” “The Drowning Pool,” “Mr. & Mrs. Bridge” and “Rally ’Round the Flag, Boys,” among others. Naturally, Newman’s acting skills picked up an Oscar along the way for Martin Scorsese’s “The Color of Money,” in which he reprised his role as pool player “Fast Eddie” Felson from “The Hustler,” as well as three Golden Globe Awards, an Emmy, a European BAFTA and a Screen Actors Guild Award. In 1982 he and his friend, writer A.E. Hotchner, founded the “Newman’s Own” salad dressing concern as a basis for a charitable foundation. Over the years, the company branched into other foods and has raised $250 million for children’s camps and other charities. Newman’s interest veered away from acting to auto racing in his later years. In 2007 he announced his retirement from acting because he felt he couldn’t add anything new to his repertoire. Newman closed his famous blue eyes for the last time at his home in Connecticut, with his family gathered around, on Sept. 26. ■
