La Jollans envision the fate of beloved post office BY MARIKO LAMB | VILLAGE NEWS Seldom has a community rallied around a single cause more passionately than La Jollans have to save their Wall Street post office. “Let our post office occupy Wall Street,” was the clever maxim of the “Re-imagine our La Jolla post office” meeting on March 29. Previous Save the La Jolla Post Office Task Force meetings have focused predominantly on preservation strategies, including designating the 1140 Wall St. building as historic, purchasing the building through an endowment and re-leasing space back to the U.S. Postal Service, and working with a buyer to preserve the building.

Participants at this month’s community forum were challenged to envision alternative options for how La Jolla’s post office could best be preserved and utilized to benefit the community should its postal services relocate, as proposed by the USPS in January. A panel of community experts in architecture, historic preservation, community planning and the arts headed the discussion at the meeting. Each presented a variety of options for the post office’s adaptive reuse and preservation of the buildSEE POST OFFICE, Page 5

Troubles not over for Invisible Children? Local jeweler accuses nonprofit of lifting her design BY MARIKO LAMB | VILLAGE NEWS The far-reaching San Diego-based nonprofit Invisible Children has given rise to activists and critics alike.

NEWS National Library Week an April Fool’s joke in San Diego? View from52



Willard Vincent “Bill” Markey 1913 ~ 2012

SANDY LIPPE National Library Week begins a week and a day after April Fool’s Day, on April 8. Are you being fooled by the latest move by the city to increase library hours by four — a kind of cosmetic change but not an essential one? Normally, La Jolla and University City libraries, along with all other branches, are closed on Mondays. With the improving economy and the strong-mayor form of government, Mayor Jerry Sanders has new found money. Beginning on June 4, the libraries will be open on Mondays from 9:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. That is the good news — but wait. On Fridays, the libraries will be closed in the morning, opening at 12:30 p.m. and closing at 5:30 p.m. That is the bad news. Confused? Many library advocates celebrating National Library Week would prefer an essential change in budgeting for libraries. San Diego, under the guidance of former Mayor Dick Murphy, had an ambitious 21st-century plan for libraries, promising to build 13 new libraries and expand nine other branches. In 2000, the City Council passed an ordinance that took an incremental increase of the general fund to improve the library budget, with the eventual goal being 6 percent allotted to the libraries. That, however, never happened and the library budget floundered. In 2002, the plans for library expansions were to be paid for by redevelopment money, grants, impact fees and bonds that would be paid back by hotel taxes and tobacco settlement money. The city’s 2004 demise of its credit rating and pension scandal ruined that plan. City


University City residents rally to keep their local library branch open during closures a few years ago. SANDY LIPPE | Village News

leaders stopped using hotel tax money for library expansion in 2005 when the budget got tight and the library ordinance was left unfunded. With the economic downturn in 2008, Sanders decided to shutter seven branches, including the University Community branch on Governor Drive, even though the U.C. library was still on the expansion list. Public protests at many branches delayed the mayor’s plan and the City Council listened to its angry constituents by voting against closing library branches. Libraries were considered critical core services during the shaky economic times and librarians reinvented them as community centers, as well as a place to check out books. San Diego’s library hours have been anemic while the neighboring San Diego County libraries stay open at least six days a week. Our library hours in the city have dropped from 54 hours in 2003 to 36, with the additional four hours bringing the weekly current total to 40. This small change — as opposed to an essential one that would see a committee revisiting and reinstating the library ordinance —

makes celebrating this National Library Week a bit anticlimactic. The Library Organizing Project, an ad hoc group of volunteers, has presented a wish list for San Diego elected leaders to consider during this year’s National Library Week: • Open all branches at least six days a week; open the Central Branch every day. • Stay open until 8 p.m. at least three days a week at all branches. • Restore Saturday and evening hours at the Central Branch. • Close only on official holidays; stay open every week, including holiday weeks. • Create minimum staff requirements that include a library manager, a youth services librarian and sufficient clerks and aides. • Fill vacant positions in a timely manner. • Fund budgets to adequately provide needed books, digital information, equipment, furnishings and delayed maintenance.

NEWS 4 Climbing to the ends of the earth THURSDAY · APRIL 5, 2012


BY KENDRA HARTMANN | VILLAGE NEWS When Ben Horne’s friend and climbing partner, Konstantin Stoletov, approached him with the idea of attempting a winter ascent of the Evolution Traverse, widely known as one of the most challenging — and most fun — climbs in the Sierra, Horne did what any experienced climber would do: he went out and familiarized himself with the route. His reaction upon his initial experience with the Traverse? “I was not convinced it was feasible,” he said. Nevertheless, Horne was willing to make an attempt on the nine-peak route, with Stoletov and fellow climbing partner Shay Har-Noy — all three are part of the informal climbing crew, “Pullharder” — in tow. The impetus of the trip was the glory that comes with a winter ascent, the sec-


Quick facts • The Evolution Traverse — The range connects nine peaks, all higher than 13,000 feet and all named after contributors to evolutionary theory. • Challenges — The biggest challenge was staying positive. “It’s very easy to quit,” Horne said. “You’re cold, you want to go down, something bad happens, something seems dangerous. Each of the four main climbing days we definitely wanted to quit. You just hope your partners don’t

want to quit at same time.” • Keep laughing — One way they stayed positive was “Ducky,” the team’s fourth climbing partner. A rubber duck, Ducky served as the team’s cheerleader. “We don’t take ourselves too seriously,” Horne said. “We’re out there having fun, and Ducky was an extension of that.” • Physical effects — Horne estimated that each team member lost about eight pounds. Upon their return, their first meal consisted of four pizzas between the three of them.

ond most highly regarded accomplishment when it comes to scaling the world’s challenging ranges, Horne said. Climber Peter Croft completed the first-ever ascent — “what matters most,” when it comes to climbing, Horne said — of Evolution Traverse in the late 1990s, and since Croft is one of Horne’s “biggest role mod-

els,” the challenge took on special meaning for him. It wasn’t just bragging rights, however, that pushed the team through eight miles and nine 13,000-foot peaks. “We really like climbing in winter because a lot of the routes in summer are high in elevation, but the conditions are not like mountain conditions,” Horne


to remain tentbound. A few inches of snow also fell, which would make climbing more difficult tomorrow.” Day Three: “There were still strong winds and extremely cold temps (-7F) but we started up the couloir at the beginning of the ridge in hopes it would subside. Though in the summer it is 4th class to the first peak, the snow on the route meant difficult climbing in crampons on the cold snow-covered rock on the ridge. … Six hours of frigid trudging, peppered with huge scary gusts of wind brought us to the top of Peak 13,360 (Mt. Gould). Denali temps in non-plastic Sierra boots meant Shay had to put Ben’s toes in his armpits to restore circulation.” Day Four: “Today saw better weather (a high of 25F!), which was essential as the routes cruxes to Mendel (peak #2)

The group kept a log of their challenges along the way. Here’s a sample of what they endured (from Day One: “The approach across 12900’ Lamarck Col took 12 hours and was windy due to the oncoming storm. Altitude was an issue for all … We bivied at the base of the route and ate lots of food for the last time for a while. We noticed that the rock rib to the left of the gully was clean from snow and might make a quicker way up the ridge in the morning. However, that was about to change.” Day Two: “Sustained 70-90 mph winds that ended up crippling, though not destroying, our tent as we decided

and the descent from Darwin (peak #3) and subsequent ridge were the most technically challenging elements of the trip.” Day Five: “We had more knife-edge traversing which included some scary simul-climbing falls on our 6-mil cord due to a broken hold and a pulled block. The entire group almost lost their frayed nerves entirely but psyche returned as we summited the rarely climbed, Peak 13,332 (#4), and perused the original 1964 summit register. A full 22 hours of climbing and two bivies had only gotten us through four peaks, but things began to speed up now as the terrain eased.” Day Six: “Our fourth day on the ridge saw increased wind and impending weather in addition to extremely slow climbing due to cumulative effects of altitude and the previous five days of

high exertion and low caloric intake. … For a fourth straight day, morale hit low and we began to question our ability to complete the traverse. On the traverse to Huxley, the final peak, a car-engine sized block came off under Konstantin’s feet. … We topped out at 1:15 p.m. on March 10, after 35 hours cumulative climbing time on the ridge. Ben whooped. Shay hollered. Konstantin bellowed. Day Seven: “The morning was one of the windiest, and frozen boots didn’t help things. Breakfast was 1 Gu and 1 Vitamin-C packet between everyone. By the time we made it back to our food stash at the start of the route, our toes were almost numb again and no one had any energy, circulation, or blood sugar.”

CONTINUED FROM Page 1 ing’s architectural integrity should the worst of the task force’s scenarios come to a head. “Recognizing that the postal service is in dire financial straits, the strong possibility is that they will list the sale of the property, no matter how much we object. We have a very small window of opportunity right now to identify potential buyers and ideas for our community vision for the space to allow our building to be preserved,” said District 1 City Councilwoman Sherri Lightner, who sat on the panel. “We don’t need to lose another historic treasure.” Community members came to the meeting in droves — filling every seat in La Jolla’s Recreation Center — with ideas primarily centered around two themes. First, keeping postal services at the same location, but adaptively reusing its excess square footage, and, second, re-appropriating the entire space in a way that would benefit the community as a whole. “This is a 14,000-square-foot building. The post office only needs a small portion for its counter services and post office boxes. This leaves a large amount of space in the rear of the building that could be adaptively reused for other purposes,” said Lightner. “Let’s make it a true community asset by better using the additional space, especially given its central location and its history as our community meeting place, the hub of the economic center of our village.” Because the post office is slated for relocation — not an outright closure as proposed for 3,500 other post offices in the country — the USPS is seeking an alternative space within a one-mile


CONTINUED FROM Page 3 According to retired librarian Anna Daniels, a founding member of Library Organizing Project, a promise was made to San Diegans: the library ordinance would set aside tax revenues to be used for library services (not capital expenses). The designated funding was to increase until it reached 6 percent where it was to be maintained. In fiscal year 2012,


CONTINUED FROM Page 4 accomplishment.” Horne, a La Jolla Shores resident and graduate student at UC San Diego, said the group’s accomplishment is made all the more noteworthy due to the fact that none of them are professional climbers. Stoletov and Har-Noy, a UCSD faculty member and UCSD graduate student, respectively, both have professional lives outside of climbing, as does Horne. “This isn’t my life,” Horne said. “We’re regular guys, not professional climbers. I’m a grad student and my primary interest is work. Climbing is a strong hobby, but a hobby nonetheless. I think that’s what’s most notable about our achievement — [climbing] is not our life.” Be that as it may, climbing was certainly their lives for the seven days — four on the actual route — the group spent on the range. They slept in a two-person tent (“I’m a big guy, so that wasn’t very fun for me,” Horne said), ate sparsely, and endured sub-zero temperatures and blasting winds — all of which, it turns out, was expected and well worth the trouble. “There’s a spiritual component to being out there,” Horne said. “You feel very close to nature. And in the end, everything went as perfectly as possible for such a difficult challenge.”


radius of its current location. The postal service only needs approximately 6,000 square feet for its operations, said panelist Joe LaCava, community planning and development expert. “They still have an upward of 7,000 or 8,000 square feet left in that building that could be reused for something that is of community benefit,” he said. “The zoning that protects our village in that particular area is really the most flexible of all the zones in the village. It allows all the uses you might expect and want in a village — spanning from retail to office to residential.” Panelists and participants at the meeting identified a range of potential uses for the space — from an arts and entertainment venue to a visitor’s center — while stressing the importance of preserving the integrity of the building’s architecture. “We want to provide these kinds of ideas to our developers,” said Leslie Davis, interim chairwoman of the task force. “We are not going to sit by and let one of those developers do whatever they want to do to that building without showing up at their doorstep.” Panelist Diane Kane, a retired senior planner at San Diego’s Historical Resources Board, announced updates to the task force’s ongoing efforts to designate the 1935 building — including the “Scenic View of the Village” mural by Belle Baranceanu — as a historically designated site. “Historic designation does not mean that the building can’t be demolished. Should the building be given a historical designation, the post office would be obliged to sell it with a few covenants that they protect the historic aspects of the building and the mural,” said Kane.

“The mural was done on canvas, so I imagine that a preservationist could remove it from the wall.” Recently, La Jolla’s post office achieved a coveted status on a list of America’s 11 Most Endangered Historic Places by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. “They want to make us the poster child,” said Davis. “What we need to do is slow down the [relocation process] until June because if they sell the post office before June, we miss the deadline for being on that list.” Another effort in the works is the establishment of a preservation fund, which was seeded by Ellen Mereweather’s $10,000 donation and has climbed to $17,000 so far. The fund was created primarily for the purposes of purchasing the building and re-leasing the front of the building back to the USPS. “They have never had that proposed to them — that they might lease it back to the owner so they would be willing to not move to another spot,” said Davis. She said the task force has yet to receive an affirmative answer from the USPS on this particular proposal. Many residents have long awaited the official USPS community input meeting to ask their burgeoning questions, have their stockpiled concerns addressed and get a response for the endless number of proposed ideas for the building’s usage. That date, LaCava announced, has finally been set by the Postal Service — Thursday, April 26. The location and exact time is yet to be determined, as the task force is attempting to find a place that is large enough to fit all of the community members who would like to voice their opinions.

libraries in San Diego received a paltry 2.6 percent of the total budget, a reduction from the 4 percent libraries were receiving when the ordinance was passed. The 0.7 percent of tax revenue paid by residents only benefits county libraries. As you settle into your celebration of National Library Week, remember the words of Brad Miltzer, honorary chair and author of “Heroes for My Son:” “Investing in libraries is an investment in education.” We need stable, long-term

funding for libraries. Think of the many ways we use our libraries and how branch libraries impact our communities in La Jolla and University City. Shutter a library and home values decrease. Shorten library hours and academic and social opportunities for San Diego decrease. Shut down the library ordinance and a critical core service crashes and burns. — Sandy Lippe is a 36-year resident of University City and the former president of the University City Community Association.

Ask The Lawyer Question:


-My parent (or spouse) died, do I need to see an attorney?

The answer is always yes, unless there are no assets to be transferred. If there is only a vehicle then you can use the DMV form called Affidavit for Transfer Without Probate. If there are no assets and there is a Will, the will should be deposited with the Court. When a real property owner dies, there is paperwork that needs to be completed within a certain Virginia Weber time frame. Before the home can be sold or transLaskowitz ferred to the heirs, the person’s name that died TRUST LAWYER must be removed. How this is accomplished depends on many factors, including whether there was a trust or if there was a surviving co-owner. This year, if the real estate or other personal property is valued at under $150,000, you can do a short form probate that does not cost as much as a full probate. You can use this for bank and brokerage accounts also. Another concern when transferring real estate are the real estate taxes. If the proper paperwork is completed timely in appropriate situations, the property taxes will stay the same. This is so important when tax bills can go up from $500 per year to $5,000 per year (or more.) This amount will pay for the attorney’s fees quickly.

CONTINUED FROM Page 1 founders were prompted to address criticism on their website — going as far as itemizing financial statements. Now, one local merchant is adding another claim to the nonprofit’s list of critiques. Corine Grant, who runs her own jewelry business called Hammered, said Invisible Children is profiting from her jewelry design with its $10 wax string bracelet, which holds a silver medallion stamped with “Kony 2012” on its face and “Stop at Nothing” on its backside. “I designed a line of bracelets five years ago that grew into a very popular item sold at several luxury boutiques across the county,” Grant said, listing Capricorn Boutique, Kerut, Pure Barre, Pink Lagoon, Mimi & Red and Sharp Hospital as regular retail buyers. Grant said a group of representatives from Invisible Children approached her at her Horton Plaza kiosk last November with a proposal to partner with the nonprofit. “They were very interested in my bracelets, and I told them the story behind the bracelets and why I make them. They asked a lot of questions — I showed them the stamps I use and the wooden maple cards that the bracelets are packaged in. I was asked if I could make custom pieces, and I told them that I do that very often,” she said. “They

asked if I would be interested in collaborating, and I said, ‘Yes.’ We exchanged information, and I never heard from them again.” Then, on Dec. 19, Grant received an email from Invisible Children representative Chadwick Gantes, who requested a bracelet for his wife for Christmas — “Just a silver medallion with something lovey dovey on it that I would be able to give to my wife,” he wrote in the email, which Grant provided to the La Jolla Village News, along with a receipt for his purchase. Until recently, Gantes’ purchase was just another ordinary exchange. It wasn’t until Grant saw the Kony 2012 video on YouTube in March that she recognized what appeared to be her bracelet design on the wrist of someone in the video. “[I] was shocked to see what looked like one of my bracelets in the video. I went to their website and found that they were selling an identical bracelet with a different message on it and very similar packaging. I contacted them twice and they claimed that it was just a coincidence,” she said. “They say that this is all a coincidence, but when you add it all up, does it sound that way to you?” Grant has since hired her own attorney who sent a letter to cease and desist. “We haven’t filed a lawsuit yet,” she said. “I understand that they have a lot on their plate right now, and I plan to give them more time to reply before we move forward.”

He was a Life Associate and 50-year member of The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers. Because Florence and Bill loved to travel, they visited many countries. After her death, Bill joined Global Volunteers Service Program to teach English to high school students in China, Thailand, Vietnam and Italy, even though he was in his late 80s. He also volunteered in the community by reading to pre-schoolers at the La Jolla Library and kindergartners at Pacific Beach Elementary. His strong sense of civic responsibility, commitment to bettering the community and love of La Jolla led him to establish the Markey Family Grove of trees at La Jolla Cove. Bill was known for being a true gentleman. He could be spotted a block away by his warm smile, beret and bowtie. He enjoyed people, young and old alike. He was always up for an adventure and showed a vitality and passion for life to the end. He will be profoundly missed by many. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife of 53 years, and two brothers, Milton and Richard.

a waistline’s best friend?

Good news for chocoholics: it turns out your addiction to the sweet stuff may actually help you lose weight. At least that’s what some UC San Diego scientists are saying in a report published recently in the Archives of Internal Medicine. In a study led by Dr. Beatrice Golomb, findings suggest that chocolate intake may actually play a part in lower body mass index (BMI). “Chocolate is rich in antioxidant phytonutrients like catechins that could contribute to favorable relationships of chocolate consumption to insulin sensitivity and [blood pressure],” reported the researchers in the study. “However, because chocolate is often consumed as a sweet and bears calories, there are concerns related to its intake.” The authors hypothesized that modest, regular chocolate consumption might be calorie-neutral. The metabolic benefits of eating modest amounts of chocolate, they figured, might lead to reduced fat deposition per calorie and approximately offset

the added calories (thus rendering frequent, though modest, chocolate consumption neutral with regard to weight). To assess this hypothesis, the researchers examined approximately 1,000 adult men and women in San Diego. The findings were even more favorable than the researchers conjectured. They found that adults who ate chocolate more days a week had a lower body mass index than those who ate chocolate less often. This was despite the fact that those who ate chocolate more often did not eat fewer calories (they ate more), nor did they exercise more. Indeed, no differences in behaviors were identified that might explain the finding as a difference in calories taken in versus calories expended. “Our findings appear to add to a body of information suggesting that the composition of calories, not just the number of them, matters for determining their ultimate impact on weight,” said Golomb. “In the case of chocolate, this is good news — both for those who have a regular chocolate habit, and those who may wish to start one.” — Kendra Hartmann

High fives all around Need a hug? Better yet, how about a high five? On April 19, Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute will be one of four beneficiaries of this year’s National High Five Day and its program, the High-Five-a-Thon for Cancer Research. Organized by the National High Five Project founded in 2010, the event channels the organization’s goal of using the high five to raise money for worthy causes. Jacob Feala, Ph.D., formerly a postdoctoral researcher at Sanford-Burnham, sits on the board of the National High Five Project, and invited the Institute — home to one of only seven National Cancer Institute-designated basic research cancer centers in the country — to apply as a beneficiary for the fundraiser, knowing the money raised would be used well. “Working there as a postdoc, I witnessed cutting-edge, clinically focused cancer research all around me,” Feala said. “Cancer is an incredibly complex disease, and to cure it we have to understand it at several levels, from mutated DNA, to the rewiring of circuits within the cell, to the cancer’s interactions with surrounding tissue. For that, we need interdisciplinary, collaborative institutes like Sanford-Burnham.” Anyone can participate in the National High-Five-a-Thon by creating a profile page at Participants agree to give 55 (or more) high fives on National High Five Day. They are then encouraged to reach out to friends and family through email and social media to gain support. Individuals or teams can participate. They will earn prizes for reaching certain fundraising goals along the way. For more information please visit — Kendra Hartmann

SCIENCEevents Tsunami safety On Tuesday, April 17, Scripps Institution of Oceanography will present the 13th annual Revelle Lecture as part of the Scripps Distinguished Lecture Series. Titled “Tsunamis: Are we underestimating the risk?” the lecture will feature Eddie Bernard, scientist emeritus for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory (PMEL) and former director of

NOAA’s Pacific Tsunami Warning Center. Presented by the Ocean Studies Board, the lecture will take guests through past devastation and future preparedness for tsunamis. In recent years, tsunamis have wreaked broad devastation, from the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, in which hundreds of thousands of people lost their lives, to the destruction in Japan just over a year ago. As a result, countries around the world are addressing the hazards associated with tsunamis. Bernard will describe threats to the United States and how coastal com-

BY KENDRA HARTMANN | VILLAGE NEWS A new research partnership is bringing three unlikely worlds together for a common cause. The collaboration will pull together music, science and martial arts in the hope of shedding light on brain development in children. Pooling the resources of the Neurosciences Institute, UC San Diego’s Center for Human Development and the San Diego Youth Symphony and Conservatory (SDYS), the study aims to answer how musical and martial arts training influence the development of cognitive skills like language, attention, and spatial reasoning. “There’s been longstanding anecdotal evidence of the influence of musical instruments on cognitive development, but there’s only a limited amount of rigorous exploration of these questions,” said Dalouge Smith, president and CEO of SDYS. “This will be an attempt to see if what has been anecdotally observed can be identified through testing and research models.” The study will recruit about 120 children, split into three groups: one consisting of music students, another of martial arts students and a third control group. Over five years, the study will observe how the students’ brains are affected by their respective activity through once-per-year assessments that involve a brain scan and a series of cognitive tests. “By the end of five years,” Smith said, “ideally we’ll be able to differentiate the factors that have been influenced by music or martial arts.” Though the idea that the brain is influenced by music is not a new hypothesis, researchers are hoping to cover all their bases by introducing the martial arts angle. That way, Smith said, results should be more conclusive as to which activity affects the brain and in what ways. “We didn’t want to suppose that longterm participation in music was having all of these effects, while not knowing if similar long-term participation in another phys-

munities can best prepare for a devastating tsunami. The free lecture starts at 4 p.m. at the Robert Paine Scripps Forum for Science, Society and the Environment (Scripps Seaside Forum), 8610 Kennel Way.

ical activity that requires a continuous pathway of improvement would have a similar outcome,” he said. “Here, we can determine if those effects are from any activity, and what seems to be the result of long-term activity in general, as compared to music, as compared to martial arts.” The effects of music and other activities on the brain are intriguing to be sure, but that’s not the only reason Smith and the SDYS were eager to jump on board. What with cuts to music education in recent years, this study, Smith hopes, will help show policy makers just what we’re missing by reducing such programs. “[SDYS has] a long history of seeing high achievement in all areas with our students,” he said. “Our students go off to top universities, and we have a strong interest in better understanding of what’s underpinning that. We’ll be able to potentially use evidence like this to talk about the benefits of music education for a child’s development and build community support for music education.” The Neurosciences Institute, UCSD’s Center for Human Development and the San Diego Youth Symphony and Conservatory are recruiting children between ages 5 and 10 for the study. Participants must have begun study of a musical instrument or martial arts within the last six months or should begin study soon, and should have a minimum level of participation in that activity for at least 30 minutes per week. Children who do not participate in an activity will be considered for the control group. Families will receive monetary compensation.

On certain spring nights following high tides, hundreds of the small, silvery fish ride the waves onto shore for a remarkable mating ritual, which only happens in Southern California. While on the beach, female grunion bury themselves in the sand to lay eggs, while males wrap themselves protectively around the females to fertilize the eggs. Both catch a wave to return to sea. Birch Aquarium naturalists will guide participants through an unforgettable night, starting with a presentation on grunion, followed by a rare

opportunity to witness grunion eggs hatch. The experience continues with a moonlit beach exploration to witness the grunion run, nature willing. Bring a flashlight and a warm jacket. This month, events will take place on April 8 from 10:45 p.m. to 12:45 a.m. and on April 23 from 10:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. The program is $12 per person, ages 6 and up. Ages 6-13 must attend with a paid adult. For more information or to make a reservation, call (858) 534-7336 or visit — Staff and contribution

La Jolla car show attracts thousands Photos by Paul Hansen

The theme for this year’s show was Italian marques, and there were plenty to be seen (left).

Trust and mistrust: who can you turn to? Doing it Better By Natasha Josefowitz, Ph.D. If just about everyone in government is lying or fudging the truth (or so it seems) or taking advantage of their positions, whom can you trust? If hospitals err 30 percent of the time in the type of medication or the dosage administered to their patients, whom can you trust? If doctors misdiagnose, lawyers overcharge, accountants make mistakes and contractors use inferior materials, whom can you trust? We are living in a period where our inclination to trust is being severely taxed. We would like to trust, but are unable to and, in fact, are advised not to in order to protect ourselves against being hurt emotionally, physically, financially or politically. Scams are being reported every day. The elderly are told they are prime victims. We are taught to walk erect and purposefully so as to not attract muggers.

I’m afraid to make eye contact with other drivers on the road lest they decide to shoot me. I hold my purse in front of me in crowded places to avoid pickpockets. Everyone I know has security systems in their homes, and we had a dog that barked at strangers and would attack if provoked. Our home was burglarized while we were in China some years ago, and my husband was the victim of identity theft. So who or what do we still trust? Can we trust our bosses will evaluate us fairly and give us credit for our ideas and our work? Can we trust our co-workers to include us in important information and do their part? Can we trust our subordinates to be loyal and perform their jobs competently and in a timely manner? We trust our spouses to look out for our interests, support us, be faithful and honest with us. We trust our parents to love us unconditionally and be there when we need them. We trust our children to do the best they can

at school, become good citizens and take care of us in our old age. We trust our friends to give us feedback when necessary and be there for us in good times and bad. And finally, we trust

our dog to warn us of danger and not make puddles on the living room rug. Betraying trust is often about willingness and character, but sometimes it is actually about competence. If I trust you to do a job well and you don’t, it may be that you’re lazy and cut corners (willingness) or that you’re ill equipped to do better (compe-

tence). When a worker or a child bungles a job or an assignment, it may be lack of training, lack of knowledge or our own unrealistic expectations. We must also be careful not to generalize our trust in someone. I trusted my husband to be loyal and devoted, but if I gave him a letter to mail, it might have stayed in his pocket for days. I can trust my colleague to set up a meeting, call the interested parties, have coffee ready and welcome everyone with name tags, but I can’t trust her to give me honest feedback about the way I ran the meeting. She’ll tell me the meeting went really well even if it was unproductive. She’s afraid to offend and therefore her feedback cannot be trusted. Or I can trust a friend to tell me honestly how I performed, but I can’t trust her to be on time. How do I deal with this trust issue? I check my bills more carefully, ask questions about hospital charges and the necessity of medical tests, get references for people I hire, talk to my pharmacist about drug interactions, discuss options with my contractor

and generally try to stay up to date about almost everything that may impact my life. So we can trust some people for some things but not for others. The trick is to know whom to trust to do what. Experience will help in being forewarned about someone’s shortcomings. It is frustrating to deal with someone who is unreliable, but you cannot change someone — not your spouse, children, friends or co-workers. If you choose to continue, or must continue, relationships with people you cannot trust in some area, then you will have to accept their behavior and compensate to protect yourself from the fallout. To be too trusting can lead to gullibility and hurt. To not be trusting enough can lead to paranoia and isolation. I don’t know what is best for you but I trust you to tell me I know what is best for me and I trust you to trust me — Natasha Josefowitz taught the first course in the U.S. on women in management and is the author of 19 books. She lives at White Sands La Jolla.

A near-capacity crowd filled the Riford Center, recently renamed the La Jolla Community Center, to hear William “Bill” Kellogg describe the history of the La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club, of which he is president. This latest in the Center’s Distinguished Speaker series proved to be a very interesting dissertation, skillfully delivered and illustrated with vintage photos and graphics. The club’s entire history was revealed, starting with 1926 when it was planned as a yacht club. But creating a boat basin there proved impossible due to the local underwater geography, so the vision shifted to tennis, for which it (like its current president) has become highly renowned and quite successful. Its famed Marine Room restaurant, badly damaged by freakish “perfect storms” in 1941 and 1982, was modified to avoid future such misadventure, and the club holds more national senior tennis championships than anywhere else in the country. Guests enjoyed interesting anecdotes about the club, a family business run by people who truly take pride in its history, as well as its present.


The Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary held its 47th annual Women of Dedication Luncheon last week at Sheraton’s Hotel and Marina. This major fundraiser annually honors 15 extraordinary women chosen for their incredible community service in various cultural and charitable organizations throughout the county. This year’s recipients of this very significant honor included La Jollans Terry Cooper, Becki Etess, Gladys Kohn and Jane Scher. From elsewhere in the county came Joye Blount, Lucy Borsenberger, Dede Carlson, Rebecca Charles, Sharon Considine, Susan Kazmarek-Biddick, Jan Reital, Elizabeth Ravenis, Julie Howell Sarno, Rita Solberg and Muffy Walker. The event began with a reception amid boutique vendors and a silent auction. When the 800 guests were seated in the ballroom, lunch was served and the program began. Auctioneer Steve Hamann quickly sold three great items, and following a video describing the work of The Door of Hope, he revealed that philanthropist Joan Waitt would match up to $1 million in donations raised for that cause. Donors responded generously (funds will be used to double the housing capacity to 24 family apartments). Pat Brown, star of San Diego TV weather, ably emceed, describing the honoree’s community service as each was presented and slowly walked the runway with her escort. The most enjoyable touch: 12 San Diego Master Chorale vocalists sang well-known songs, with lyrics artfully re-written by Brian Verhoye to fit each honoree. (Example: For Joye Blount, “Joy to the World” became “Joy Is Our Girl,” etc.)


When the Soviets orbited Sputnik in 1957, many Americans began to worry that America was falling behind in science. ARCS (Achievement Rewards for College Students) Foundation was formed. This organization of women philanthropists, dedicated to

SOCIETY advancing science in America, spread across the country. San Diego’s chapter, chartered in 1985, has raised more than $7 million in funding for 461 scholars. Every cent goes directly to support graduate and undergraduate students — U.S. citizens specializing in science, engineering or medicine. (Member dues cover all expenses.) Last week, ARCS-SD’s 2012 Scientist of the Year fundraiser honored noted inventor, entrepreneur and science advocate Dean Kamen. His 440 patents include many innovative medical devices including functioning artificial limbs, and the popular Segway transportation device. He also founded FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology), dedicated to motivating the next generation to understand, use and enjoy scientific knowledge and its fruits. FIRST now serves more than 250,000 students, aged 6 to 18 years, in 50 countries. At the event’s reception, members of the Holy Cows (High Tech High Point Loma’s chapter of FIRST robotics) demonstrated robots they built for last year’s competition. The 2012 game is a form of basketball the robots must be able to play. After dinner, honoree Kamen delivered an inspiring address about the advances of technology, the importance of science education and the significance of innovation to our future.

The Grammy for Most Sophisticated Gala of the Week goes to the La Jolla Music Society (LJMS) for its March 30 Winterfest Gala, “Cabaret.” Taking over the fabulous Anthology venue downtown, they reconfigured it comfortably for 150 guests and brought in sultry chanteuse Ute Lemper to sing while the Vogler Quartet played. Guests socialized with champagne, cocktails and superb tray-passed treats. Some added theme-inspired props to their “cabaret-festive” black-tie attire and frolicked in Black Label’s complimentary photo booth. LJMS’ “Big Cheese” Christopher Beach welcomed everyone, and after downing a particularly fine filet mignon dinner they found themselves making donation pledges of $250 to

IN AND AROUND LA JOLLA Donovan’s Steak House They may look good enough to eat, but the paintings and sculptures at Donovan’s of La Jolla are strictly off limits – so you’ll have to content yourself with the USDA prime beef, the eatery’s star attraction. If steak isn’t in the plan, pork and veal chops and succulent seafood will satisfy the most discriminating of palates. And at Donovan’s, fresh seasonal vegetables and your choice of potato are always included with each entrée.

$5,000 and bidding generously on four live auction packages. One item, a gourmet cheese and wine pairing for 12 with Mr. Beach, was sold twice at $9,000 each. More than $70,000 was raised for education and outreach programs. The evening’s highlight was the Berlin Nights/Paris Days cabaret performance, with the lovely Lemper comfortably crooning in flawless French and German, channeling Edith Piaf and taking Kurt Weil’s “Mack the Knife” back to its 1928 Threepenny Opera origins. Her contentious relationship with her German homeland didn’t dampen her interpretations of Weimar Republic-era music. LJMS’ motto is “We bring the world to San Diego,” and they certainly did so for this gala.

Need a Geriatric Care Manager? Since Jim didn’t have experience or live in the area, the care manager was able to get Jim’s father into a daily meal program, through the VA, she got dad hearing aides and also got him a lifeline bracelet for emergencies. She takes Jim’s dad to doctor’s appointments, advocates for him, coordinates his medications and makes home visits to check on his well being. She reports back to Jim, with his father’s permission. Is it expensive? Not really when you consider the care manager is on call 24/7 for any crisis situation. The first few weeks coordinating the care and concerns hours may be increased. Then once the person is headed in the right direction, hours decrease and your peace of mind is restored. Medical needs increase as you age, so hiring a nurse geriatric care manager who specialize in helping to achieve the best health outcomes may be desired. You want someone who has been in the field for awhile and has experience in dealing with elder ailments. All the RN Care Managers at Innovative Healthcare Consultants are listed on the national website. Expect the care manager to be your eyes and ears to your parent or spouse. Jim’s father eventually needed more care and the care manager was able to arrange the move close to Jim, which was the most economical option. . Jim says “The care manager allowed me to stop worrying and enjoy my dad’s final years.” See our website at or call us at (877) 7311442.

Pray that we don’t fall prey Most of us are working so hard at what we do. Little seems easy right now. Let’s take the National GUEST VIEW scene. Last time Nancy Gardner around, Obama won the election by taking mostly urban areas in the country. Students and others with free time were bused to polling places. It was a very effective campaign run by Acorn. That entity has morphed into a new one with the same plan for 2012. Strangely,

reports have come out that many dead people are on the registration lists in several states. According to Ballotpedia, Mississippi has 123% more registered voters than residents over18. Connecticut has 8500 dead people on their rolls. In Florida, 65,000 ineligible or dead people are on the list of voters. Dallas and Harris County’s in Texas have 10,000 dead people registered; and our own Bay Area as reported by KTVU2 had 232 dead people voting in 2008, some of them more than once. A quick fix would be to require citizens to show

government-issued photo identification in order to vote. Our Attorney General, Eric Holder, is suing against the states that are trying to implement that very law. Interesting. Meanwhile, republicans have deprecated each other in public to the point that few men are left standing. Will the last man be electable after such public flogging? Pray that we don’t fall prey to the whims of others and we all avail ourselves of the opportunity to voice our choice through our vote. While we are at it, how about

electing someone who can go to Washington and not put their hand out? Do you think it could be possible to outlaw Lobbying? How about not allowing the House and the Senate to pass any legislation that members can opt out of? How about requiring anyone on public assistance of any kind to be drug tested monthly in order to collect a check and why not cap the number of dependent children custodians can receive monthly $1500 aid checks for at one time? Many collect for 8 or more making $12,000 or more per household monthly. They are being paid not to work. We do a disservice by promulgating that behavior. What if the US ran out of money to pay for them? In fact America is on the down side of the Democracy Curve. We now have more people we pay for, than pay into the pot that pays out. According to James Cooper of the Fiscal Times, “For the first time since the Great Depression, households are receiving more income from the government than they are paying the government in taxes”. Did you know the 3.8% sales tax buried in the Obama Care Health Bill takes effect for any homes sold starting January 2013? Did you know that “Cap and Trade” is a plan to allow businesses and citizens only so many carbon units in a life time? Did you know these will be sold on a new commodities market like stocks? California’s Air Resource Board will distribute our allowances, tradable permits which will be marketable, beginning 2013. First passed under Nixon and amended under Bush 1, the Federal Clean Air Act sets ambient air quality standards. By 2020, we are to reduce to pre 1990 levels, by

2050 to reduce another 20%. How can that be done while fossil fuels are still so widely relied upon? If Cap and Trade will even apply to light bulbs, who’s to say it will stop there? Taken to the extreme, if a person is no longer allowed carbon units, they will no longer be allowed to breathe out. That would also kill the foliage. Through photosynthesis plants and trees take in carbon and give off the oxygen we breathe. Pray we don’t fall prey. Want some good news? Whenever you want to know if our economy will be improving, check out construction permits and starts. I have it on good authority they are up in San Diego County. I also can see that there has not been enough available and desirable inventory of homes to meet the growing need in our coastal area. Interest rates bobble up and down daily, but remain at all time lows. What does all this mean to you? If you want to sell your home, now is the time. If you want to buy a new residence or investment, now is the time. If you need a loan, put your paperwork together and call a professional. We are funding regularly. When November comes around, be sure to take the time to vote your preference and pray we don’t fall prey to as Shakespeare said in Hamlet, “the slings and arrows… that flesh is heir to.” Nancy K.
