Rainbow curbs: the new LJ parking plan Would reportedly add 64 spaces BY ALYSSA RAMOS | VILLAGE NEWS

Members of La Jolla Community Planning Association (LJCPA) discussed a parking plan that would add spaces to La Jolla village and, its creators said, possibly curb future intervention from the city. “Paid parking isn’t dead,” LJCPA trustee Dan Cortney said during the group’s April 2 meeting. LJCPA members introduced a “rainbow curb” plan that the report’s authors said would add 64 parking spaces around La Jolla village, mostly by eliminating valet and passenger zones. “This is step one of the parking management plan,” said Ed Ward, creator of the Rainbow Curbs Survey presented during the meeting and last year’s alternate parking plan that opposed the city of San

Diego’s paid parking meter proposal for the village. “Let it be known now to any public servant: We will oppose meters to the end,” Ward said. Last year, La Jollans clashed over a plan to install parking meters throughout the village. But locals ultimately ended their clamoring when former San Diego City Councilman Scott Peters announced he was stalling the process by dispersing citywide parking boards including the La Jolla Community Parking Advisory Board that included members from local area councils. Ward said his plan focused on spaces companies were not using, abandoned drive-through spaces, unneeded commercial loading zones and some curbs that, Ward SEE CURBS, Page 5

MTS sharpens scissors for new cuts, fare increases BY SEBASTIAN RUIZ | VILLAGE NEWS

Come September, the weekend bus line to Cabrillo National Monument and Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery may cease. Other changes to routes will take effect June 14, transit officials said. The changes are the latest in route reductions and fare increases the Metropolitan Transit System (MTS) plans to implement because of the ripple effect from state budget cuts. In the wake of California’s financial crisis, the MTS board of directors voted in March to eliminate weekend service to parts of Point Loma, along with additional service reductions in the downtown area. The so-called “Super Loop” bus and shuttle service will also replace Route 86, which serves University City. Route 84 to Cabrillo National Monument and Fort Rosecrans, which frequently serves personnel at Naval Base Point Loma, also

faces service reductions. District 2 Councilman Kevin Faulconer sits on the MTS board of directors. The board is putting off decisions about Route 84 until September, according to Tony Manolatos, communications director for Faulconer. MTS also expects to hike the cost of monthly adult bus passes from $68 to $72, as well as initiating other increases effective July 1. The change will represent the third fare increase in 18 months, MTS spokesman Robb Schupp said. “It’s a continuing saga in which the state is balancing its budget by taking away funding from lots of agencies… this [MTS] being one of them,” Schupp said. The San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) will hold two public hearings about the fare increases. One is set for Wednesday, April 15 in the North County SEE MTS, Page 4

In an effort to decorate and update Bird Rock’s benches along La Jolla Boulevard, Bird Rock Community Council members are asking local businesses to sponsor their Concrete Bench Art Project. “The concrete benches were put in many years ago, but they suffered with the sea air,” said Bird Rock Community Council President Joe LaCava. “One year ago we hired a concrete specialist to finish the benches so they’re safe and to add some color.” BRCC members asked Jane Wheeler to decorate one bench. Wheeler, a local artist who frequently aids Bird Rock Elementary School and Muirlands Middle School art students, chose the bench outside Little Locks at 5665 La Jolla Blvd., LaCava said. “Wheeler was chosen to do her thing with the benches. They picked a mosaic with a seaside scheme in front of Little Locks,” LaCava said. “It was literally a work of art. It so inspired people that we began to talk about the other five benches — we could do the same thing if we found other

Locals can view the completed mosaic bench outside Little Locks. Business owners interested in sponsoring one of the five remaining benches can email BRCC members at brcc@san.rr.com. ■

Transit District Boardroom, 810 Mission Ave. in Oceanside, at 9 a.m. A second meeting is scheduled for Friday, April 17 at SANDAG’s seventh-floor boardroom downtown at 401 B St. SANDAG sets fares for the region, including the North County Transit District. The changes come in response to the state’s elimination of an estimated $14 million in “transit assistance” funds to MTS each year for the next five years. MTS officials hope to close the gap with $4.7 million worth of cuts in services, along with “internal” changes such as selling more advertising on sides of buses. MTS officials expect the fare increase to add about $2.2 million to the MTS operating budget, Schupp said. SANDAG principal planner Dave Schumacher said there aren’t many options for MTS. “It’s never a happy thing to [cut services],” Schumacher said. “These times are frustrating. There’s just no getting around that.” SANDAG could tap into funds allotted for capital improvements to stave fare increases. But that requires a two-thirds vote of the board, Schumacher said. SANDAG has already

allocated about $127 million in federal funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act toward freeway improvements and infrastructure. That money also has strings attached and is expected to stimulate the economy by creating jobs for capital projects like infrastructure. District 1 Councilwoman Sherri Lightner, who sits on both the MTS and SANDAG boards, could not be reached before press time. MTS most recently raised the cost of an adult pass in January from $64 to $68. This new increase to $72 is one of several across-the-board fare hikes. Youth passes would also increase from $34 to $36 and passes for disabled people would jump from $1 to $18. In addition to higher prices, MTS also voted in March to reduce or eliminate service to some areas. MTS proposes eliminating Route 14 service on weekends to all destinations but Hotel Circle Drive. MTS also made cuts to routes 820, 850 and 860 that serve downtown. The line delivering riders from Ocean Beach to downtown — Route 923 — will now stop at the San Diego International Airport, according to the plan.

Dog Beach in Ocean Beach, a less protected site, explained Audubon Society spokesman Jim Peugh. The San Diego Audubon Society hopes to bring the California least tern back to Mission Bay by pulling the invasive plants and setting up least tern decoys to attract the real bird. The group will host its last habitat restoration efforts to prepare the 11-acre site at Mariners Point on Saturday, April 11 from 9 a.m. to noon. Volunteers are encouraged to show up with work gloves, weeding tools and clippers, and are advised to wear longsleeved shirts and bring water. The least terns may arrive as early as April 15 and leave as late as Sept. 15. They prefer a sandy habitat to raise their young because the chicks are sand-colored and camouflage into the soil.

The adult birds are white with black markings. The open, sandy dunes make it easier for the adults to spot predators, while the invasive vegetation provides a place for predators to wait for the chicks. “[The California least tern] is endangered because of habitat loss,” Peugh said. “There used to be dunes everywhere. The terns would nest in one dune and if a predator came along, they could move to another dune. Now there are only a few places that are open enough that they can actually nest on them.” Directions to Mariner’s Point: From Sea World Drive heading west, exit onto West Mission Bay Drive (going north). Continue over the bridge and then take a left on Gleason Road (across from the Bahia Hotel). Take an immediate left onto Mariners Way and proceed to the end of the road.

LJCPA trustee Tim Lucas said. Ward said the village is overcrowded with myriad yellow and white passenger unloading spaces and areas posting conflicting signs. He called for trustees and locals to probe the permit process restaurants use while applying for the valet spots. “It’s obvious there’s a lot that needs to be changed,” Ward said. “The white curb for passenger valet unloading and loading is the same as yellow. Eliminate the yellow and make them the same.” “A boss of mine once said, ‘Get rid of everything and then bring it back,’” LJCPA President Joe LaCava said. Trustees did not vote on the

parking plan during the April meeting. “There’s a lot of one hand not knowing what the other hand was doing,” LJCPA trustee Darcy Ashley said. “It could [end up] like hopscotch where every other business has a passenger loading zone.” “The issue is that we’re going to get La Jolla to agree on something,” LaCava said. “The issue of how do valet permits get issued and paid for — that issue needs to be addressed,” Ward said.

GUEST EDITORIAL

Compromise budget passed by Legislature Hard work on state’s budget reform and economy lies ahead tressed Californians. Budget solutions crafted in negotiations between Democrats, Republicans and the governor reflect the state’s nearly $42 billion shortfall and the nation’s grim economic reality. There isn’t much to like in this budget and there is a lot all sides have to learn to live with until the economy improves, but dealing with the budget is an essential step to addressing these other economic issues. In a surprising move, the California Chamber of Commerce, the state’s premier advocate for business interests, came out in support of the plan, acknowledging that a combination of cuts and revenues will be necessary to save the state from a fiscal meltdown. That shows you the severity of our budget situation and its effect on the entire economy. I believe we have prevented the worst from happening – the complete debilitation of state government with dire consequences for the rest of the state’s economy. Now our work begins to create jobs, reform the budget process and keep people in their homes.

BY LORI SALDANA

fter several weeks of painful negotiations, fiery speechmaking, a GOP leadership coup and all-night legislative sessions, the California State Legislature passed a budget on Feb. 19. The budget includes $41 billion in solutions that address the current-year shortfall and enacts the 200910 budget four months early. It includes $15.12 billion in expenditure reductions, including more than $13 billion in cuts, $14.4 billion in taxes, and $11.9 billion in borrowing. This formula may change pending the state’s tax receipts later this spring and whatever the state receives in the federal stimulus money. We have difficult work to do on creating jobs, addressing the foreclosure crisis and jumpstarting the state’s economy, so getting this budget passed and enacted is necessary if we are to move forward on the state’s other pressing needs. If the Legislature hadn’t passed the budget, the state would have halted construction on a number of infrastructure projects resulting in the loss of tens of thousands — Lori Saldaña represents of jobs and the state becoming increasingly unable to provide the 76th Assembly District and serves as the Assembly much-needed assistance to increasing numbers of unem- Speaker Pro Tem. ■ ployed and financially dis-

Correction The story “Ethologist Dawkins will receive Nierenberg Prize” in last week’s paper (page 1) mistakenly called Dawkins a science fiction author. He is a science writer, evolutionary biologist and ethologist. false, as evidenced by findings of the San Diego County Department of Environmental Health. In 1994, the DEH closed the Children’s Pool beach due to high fecal coliform levels. In 1997, DNA studies confirmed that the high fecal coliform levels were due to the seals. (None of the other beaches cited have this high and constant level of fecal coliform contamination, and virtually none that is attributable to seals.) The only thing that has changed since these studies were done is a significant increase in the number of seals at the Children’s Pool, each of which produces still more fecal coliform bacteria. The writer further states that “the water in the pool is completely changed twice a day by tides and almost continually being flushed by surf and shore currents.” In fact, a combination of natural topography, augmented by the breakwater jetty that created the Children’s Pool, prevents this from happening. Simple observation will confirm this fact, which is reinforced by scientific evidence on the public record. SEE LETTERS, Page 11

Health Beauty Talking to an Elder with Dementia

Barry Julian Broomberg, M.D.

If you know someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia, you know how difficult it can be to communicate with them. Dementia affects the brain, but the person still has their humanness, and still has a mind, an ego and feelings that should be respected. It seems cruel to force a person with dementia to accept aspects of reality that they cannot comprehend. The main coping skills you’ll need to improve communication with your loved one are redirection and validation. People with dementia sometimes display behaviors that seem out of character or are far too emotional for a specific situation. Redirection diverts their attention away from the stressful even to something more pleasant. This technique and its usefulness depend on what seems sensible in the situation. Be creative and experiment to see what works and what doesn’t with your loved one. Validation therapy tries to understand why your loved one is behaving a certain way and then you address the trigger or underlying concern. Allowing the dementia patient some measure of control will aid in self-worth and will reduce the occurrence of negative behaviors. The RN Case Managers at Innovative Healthcare Consultants are experienced in dealing with Alzheimer’s and dementia issues and would be happy to discuss your areas of concern. Call us at (877) 731-1442 and visit our website at www.innovativehc.com.

A Message from Dr. Broomberg, Voted Best La Jolla Doctor for Three Consecutive Years I have been practicing Family Medicine for 40 years in South Africa and the United States. I began my practice in 1983 here in La Jolla, and it grew from a small intimate practice to a rather large one, now servicing over 3,600 active patients. Every year the pressure to see more people increases, leaving both the patient and the doctor dissatisfied. The dramatic changes in medicine, throughout the years, have made it exceedingly difficult to deliver a high level of personalized service. With this in mind, I am making some important changes in my practice that allow me to take care of my expanded patient base and offer new personalized wellness options and specialty services. Along with the continuation of general medicine, I am excited to announce the implementation of three categories of enhanced services into my practice.

INSIDE LA JOLLA 11 Financial giant Richard Russell honored THURSDAY · APRIL 9, 2009 LA JOLLA VILLAGE NEWS

OBITUARY Bonny Read Knight, 52; artist, model Bonny Read Knight was born June 26, 1956 in Pasadena, Calif., and died March 17 in San Diego. She was the loving daughter of the late Harry Wilcox Read and Mariam Duenisch Read. Bonny, a true southern California lady, loved the ocean, the beach and sailing. She attended public schools in San Marcos, graduated with honors from La Jolla High School in 1974 and received her bachelor’s degree in art from UC Santa Barbara. She was a restaurateur and professional model. She was athletic, played tennis and badminton and skied. She was a true artist and enjoyed painting, drawing, music and dance. Bonny was gifted at taking something beautiful and making it more beautiful. She would creatively arrange fresh-clipped roses from the garden into dramatic bouquets. Bonny is survived by her daughter, Jennifer Knight of San Diego; her son, Bryant Knight of Los Angeles; a sister, Melissa Ross of Escondido; a brother, Larry Read from Canyon Lake, Texas; a niece and several nephews and cousins. She tenderly loved her babies and was devoted to inspiring them to be true to themselves and develop their own creative talents. She was proud of her children. She was fondly called Bon. She lived life to its fullest, enjoyed entertaining and was a gracious and generous hostess. Her presence would create the party and her laughter the music. Bonny’s own words, “I’m a fool and I’ll always be, but I’ve got a dream!” Her family and friends would agree that Bonny definitely lived her dreams. She told those she loved “always remember to smile” and “open your eyes to

Since that date he has never missed an issue. It is the longest newsletter service continuously published by one person in the investment business. He continues voracious reading, commencing at 3 a.m., devouring dozens of publications to produce his now e-letter full of news on the monetary markets plus whatever interests him that day. He is a business hero to approximately 10,000 subscribers. More than 450 people attended a dinner celebration honoring Russell’s 84th birthday last Saturday night, April 4, at the Manchester Grand Hyatt. The event was covered by CNN and other syndications. This tribute, sponsored and coordinated primarily by John Mauldin, with seven business associates, was attended by 35 news writers, many of whom Russell helped or encouraged. Several expressed gratitude to their mentor.

Wolfie at the door It was an absolutely perfect afternoon, the kind for which La Jolla is famous, featuring gentle breezes, lovely skies and the sounds of crashing waves. Finally spring has sprung, and the afternoon sponsored by Mainly Mozart’s Club Amadeus drew record numbers to Victor Fargo’s home, perched on a rise overlooking all that glory. Volunteers kept bringing folding chairs into the room where the concert was held until they overflowed almost into the kitchen. Among the familiar faces were Reinette and Marvin Levine, who time their trips so well that they are always in attendance at M.M. events as well as the San Diego Youth Symphony, two of their special favorites. They were just back from an Asian cruise and headed next for Israel. Vern Aguirre mentioned how shocked he was to learn that the friend he had spent so much time with one recent evening had been killed by a drunk driver on his way home. On an upbeat note, the two young ladies who performed at the afternoon concert were both prodigies; one started at age 3, the other at 4. They’ve learned their lessons well.

Lyric’s ‘Waltz Dream’

| VILLAGE NEWS

BY CHARLENE BALDRIDGE | VILLAGE NEWS

Lyric Opera delivers endless variations on the waltz in Oscar Strauss’ “A Waltz Dream,” through April 12 at the Birch North Park Theatre. It’s “The Merry Widow,” “The Chocolate Soldier,” “The Great Waltz” and (later) “The Sound of Music” all rolled into one. “A Waltz Dream,” which played on Broadway in 1908, is heard in Adrian Ross’ translation of the original Viennese book. The story may seem silly to modern American tastes, but the show is all about the waltz and romance. All the production lacks is some real Viennese schmaltz, musically and dramatically (think Beverly Sills’ interpolation of “Meine Lippen sie küssen so heiss” when she performed “The Merry Widow” at San Diego Opera in 1977). Nonetheless, Lyric Opera’s production has much to offer, scoring big in the comedy department. Under the baton of Leon Natker, the orchestra plays the largely neglected score admirably. The title might be “The Case of the Reluctant Bridegroom.” In the fictional state of Flausenthurn, King Joachim (baritone Walter Dumelle) has just married off his daughter, Princess Helene (soprano Laura Parker), to a commoner, Lt. Niki (tenor Chad Hilligus) of the Vienna Hussars. In reality, Niki’s been swept off his feet, and when it comes to his marital obligations as prince consort, he’d much rather be in Vienna, thank you. Niki runs off with his pal, Lt. Montschi (baritone Christopher Johnstone), into the woods, where the entertainment is the all-female Prater Swallows orchestra. Both military men promptly fall in love with the orchestra’s Viennese conductor, Franzi, played by Stacey Stofferahn, remembered as Hanna in Lyric Opera’s 2006 “Merry Widow.” Lady Frederica (mezzo Pamela Laurent) saves the situation by enlisting Franzi’s aid, and everyone is suitably paired by the time the curtain falls two acts, many ensembles, duets and arias later. With her warm, well-produced voice, Stofferahn cuts a swath musically, very nearly transporting one to Vienna. The comedy awards go to DuMelle as the incompetent king and baritone Geno Carr as the pompous, equally inept Count Lothar. Carr has an engaging voice, commanding officiousness and excellent physicality. His sinking falls are gems. The scenes between king and count lift the ponderous proceedings considerably. Their

diction is excellent. Sadly, the same cannot be said for all. Johnstone’s persuasive performance as Montschi is enjoyable. Extremely handsome, tall and dark, he has an ingratiating baritone and marvelous way of carrying himself. Musically, his duets “A Dream Waltz” with Hilligus, and “Piccolo, Piccolo” with Stofferahn, are highlights indeed. Hilligus never sinks from the vocal “mask,” singing his role’s high tessitura easily. Some may find this far-forward vocal production tiresome, but it is not unpleasant and always reliable. Similarly, Parker’s high, light coloratura is rife with vibrato, which some may find tedious as well; all is within reach save the ill-advised high note in the Act III closing ensemble. The leads are pleasant to watch despite the production’s mixed bag of peasant, military and court costumes. This listener’s favorite line is “Life is unpleasant, especially if you’re a peasant.” Sadly, this genre, so delightfully spoofed in “Thoroughly Modern Millie,” is an excursion down memory lane, way past its use-by date. Remaining performances of “A Waltz Dream” are 7:30 p.m. tonight and Saturday and 2:30 p.m. Sunday at the Birch North Park Theatre, 2891 University Ave., San Diego.

La Jolla High frosh skating to success

Bishop’s softball wins Torrey Invitational; LJCD places 4th BY DAVE THOMAS | VILLAGE NEWS

BY DAVE THOMAS | VILLAGE NEWS

La Jolla may not exactly be known as the figure skating capital of the country, but a pretty good skater calls the area home. Skylar Economy, a freshman at La Jolla High School, has been figure skating for about nine years. According to Economy, it was one day after kindergarten that her mom asked her if she wanted to try to skate because she received a coupon from a magazine for a free skating session. “Right when I got on the ice, I fell in love with the sport,” Economy said. Years later, Economy has turned that love into a sport in which she is winning medals and skating toward even bigger days ahead. Economy is a member of San Diego’s Team del Sol, which recently went to Portland, Maine and captured the bronze medal at the 2009 U.S. Synchronized Skating Championships. “We were against the top 12 intermediate teams in the nation and placed third overall,” Economy continued. “Our skate was clean and, overall, a nice way to end the season. Our program was ‘fire’ themed so we had music and choreography that went along with it. We did a fire theme this year because we wanted to do a tribute towards San Diego and everyone affected by the devastating fires that occurred last year.

Our program was fire themed so we had music and choreography that went along with it. SKYLAR ECONOMY FIGURE SKATER

Figure skater Skylar Economy is a freshman at La Jolla High.

Two sisters on our team, Erin and Megan Winslow, their grandparents lost their home; and another girl, Cassie Bishop, lost her own house due to the fires. We wanted to show that we can succeed and work really hard, after a terrible circumstance that affected us all. Not too many other teams we competed against can say that.” Economy noted that Team del Sol held up strong and kept going to practices because of its drive and love for the sport and team. “This last competition was really emotional for a few of the girls because they are going to college next year and they have been on the team even longer than I have,” Economy said. “We wanted to skate for the fire victims, everyone watching, but mostly ourselves and each other. Since there’s 18 people on the team, before competition we always say, ‘18 bodies, one soul’.’’ For Economy, her personal ice

skating schedule consists of waking up at around 4:50 every morning before school and skating for about two hours. She also skates sometimes after school and has a conditioning class every Tuesday for about an hour to build strength and endurance. On the weekends, Economy skates with Team del Sol for about two hours on Saturdays, having to wake up at 3:50 a.m. Then on Sunday, the members skate anywhere between 1 1/2 hours to even 3 1/2 hours. “It’s usually pretty intense practices, especially before competition,” Economy said. “We recently added early morning Tuesday practices where I wake up at around 3 a.m. to skate with the team, then skate individually. Before competitions, I really try to skate more so that I can really practice my program so that I feel SEE SKATING, Page 15

Both The Bishop’s School and La Jolla Country Day (LJCD) School softball teams picked up victories in last week’s fifth annual Torrey Invitational, with the Lady Knights capturing the crown. The Bishop’s School is currently 7-3 with a four-game winning streak. During its four-game streak, the Lady Knights have scored 39 runs while only giving up two. In action last Saturday, Bishop’s beat Canyon Crest Academy 9-2 to win the Torrey Invitational — its first tournament victory in several years. During the tournament, senior pitcher Natalie Camarda averaged more than 10 strikeouts per game with 13 strikeouts in the championship game. In addition, junior catcher Briana Martinez batted .500 with one home run and five RBIs, while junior Gabby Salerno batted .428. In the title game, both freshman

shortstop Alex Mejia and sophomore second baseman Megan Keiffer scored runs. “This past week, we had a total team effort culminating in the Torrey Invitational Tournament championship,” Bishop’s head coach Jim Buechler said. “Not only did we receive contributions from our seniors and juniors including Natalie Camarda, Briana Martinez and Gabby Salerno but also from our sophomores and freshmen as well.” Meantime, La Jolla Country Day School (2-5-1) captured fourth place after losing a close game with Holtville. “In the tournament, Patricia Flathers, Chemayne Shipley, Brittney Dawson and Katie and Megan Woods played very good softball; they all had some great hits and played outstanding defense,” LJCD head coach Corinne Brunn noted. The tournament had teams from Orange County, Imperial County and San Diego County. ■

La Jolla, Bishop’s golfers take swing toward wins BY DAVE THOMAS | VILLAGE NEWS

Brian John, Brian Boermester, Joshua Blevins, Varun Rau and Emil Jaboori. At The Bishop’s School, head coach Billy Subang and the Knights is coming off a 2-11 season, going 0-8 in league play. “We hope that our seniors will give us leadership towards are younger players,” Subang commented. “We are hoping to finish third in our five-team league and win over 50 percent of our matches this year.” In a recent 207-240 loss to Canyon Crest Academy, Bishop’s (2-4 this season) was led by Pieter Stougaard’s 41, followed by Barry Moores 46, Spencer Bisbas 49, Steven Schoelen 51 and David Cohn 53.

Local scholastic golfers have been off and swinging as the season recently started up. At La Jolla High, head coach Allen Merryman had the Vikings sitting at 4-4 following recent play. The team has defeated Mission Bay, Crawford, La Jolla Country Day and University City, with loses against Torrey Pines, Saints, Scripps Ranch and Francis Parker. “Our losses were devastating since we feel like we should have won two, but that’s golf and that’s why I tell them every stroke counts,” Merryman said. “We hope things begin to bounce back our way on some of the breaks we’ve been getting.” Key players to date have includ— Editor’s note: La Jolla Country ed number one player and team captain Dylan Jackson, along with Day School did not respond prior Ikaika Velasco, Nick Johnson, to press time for this article. ■ Kevin Mulvihill, Austin Vincent,

It’s really hard and sometimes I will get tired of it and want to be a ‘normal’ teenager and sleep in on the weekends and not have to wake up extra early before school.” On days where Economy may want to sleep in, she reminds herself about how much ice skating means to her and all of the lessons she has learned from it.

“It’s a great sport to make friendships with people that share the same interests as you, and they actually get that you wake up at 4 a.m. for a reason and it’s not just because it’s a sport,” Economy points out. While Team del Sol has finished for this season, Economy’s individual skating season has just begun. This month, she will compete for the first time in a higher level at “Skate la Grande” and the La Jolla Open as well. Economy, who said she has

As the Pads launch a new era, another franchise celebrates BY MARTIN JONES WESTLIN | VILLAGE NEWS

You can all come out now. Seriously. The recession — the bane of this country’s existence since the fall of 2007, the many-headed monster that’s fueled such anger at the business sector’s crimes against humanity — has run its course. The conclusive proof isn’t in the recent gains on Wall Street or the big jump in February housing starts. It has its genesis, of all places, at Petco Park, home of the San Diego Padres. Jeff Moorad, the new Padres CEO and central figure in

the club’s much-anticipated turnaround, has pledged that affordability, even in these bleak fiscal times, will become the cornerstone of the local baseball experience. Scott Kaplan thinks this is an “extremely cool” thing. He said so on his March 27 radio show, the day after the Padres introduced Moorad to the outside world at a press conference. His enthusiasm echoed Moorad’s in its infectiousness — if he’s this jazzed about the new era taking shape in the East Village, imagine his delight when the recession

finally does take its leave. But first things first. The Padres’ 40th campaign happens to coincide with the eighth anniversary of “The Scott & BR Show,” marked April 1 at downtown’s The Tilted Kilt sports pub. It’s not like many kilts were tilting at that point — the program airs on AM’s XEPRS, branded locally as “XX 1090,” from 5 to 9 a.m. But from the sounds of things, Kaplan and partner Billy Ray Smith didn’t seem to notice, much less balk at the early hour.

A woman accused last summer of throwing a benefit fashion show and silent auction in La Jolla and then skipping out with goods before paying the charity recently held a similar event in San Diego. Vanessa Sweatte of Sweatte Productions allegedly bilked La Jollans, local merchants, fashion designers and a New York children’s charity called Kids in Distressed Situations (KIDS) of funds and goods in July 2008 after producing Fashionably Lounging at Prospect Bar & Lounge, with merchandise provided through La Jolla merchants. Sweatte allegedly left with some gifts and one-of-a-kind clothing, the show’s designers said. And KIDS representatives

said they never received a cent. Now, representatives from the Lupus Foundation — the charity Sweatte said was beneficiary of a Feb. 21 event at Catamaran Resort Hotel called Fashion by the Bay — say they are waiting for Sweatte to return their calls. “There was a signed agreement between our office in California and Miss Sweatte,” said the Lupus Foundation’s Maggie Maloney. Maloney said she contacted representatives from San Diego’s Catamaran Resort Hotel regarding the charity event. Amber Kelly, catering manager for the Catamaran Resort Hotel, coordinated Fashion by the Bay. “[Sweatte’s] numbers were lower than she expected.

WHAT LIES BENEATH

PLASTIC CONTINUED FROM Page B·1

or even thousands of years. In the Central North Pacific, home of the so-called “Giant Garbage Patch,” plastic specks outweigh zooplankton (small or microscopic animals in the form of adults, larvae and eggs that drift in the ocean) by 6 to 1. Zooplankton make up the next generation of fish and invertebrates or may end up as food for various marine species like fish and seabirds. These critters unknowingly ingest the plastic or chemicals released from plastic along with the zooplankton. According to an article in the journal Environmental Science & Technology (K. Betts, 2008), the amount of plastic decomposing in the ocean may be a long-term problem for marine food webs. Larger plastic debris mostly floats on the surface, but microscopicsize plastic (microplastic) particles waft through the water and may settle on the seafloor. Dense areas of such decomposing microplastic have been shown to hold PCB concentrations more than a million times greater than that of the surrounding water. Mussels, which filter food out of the water, collect microplastics in their digestive tracts. Common marine worms, animals that burrow into the mud bottom, also build up microplastics that settle in sedi-

ments where the worms make their homes. Whatever the debris, there is one certain connection — people. Most plastic comes from land: storm drains and sewers, picnickers, beachgoers, fishers, aftereffects of waterside sporting events, lawns, parking lots, streets and boating gear, for a short list. It starts with us, and it returns to haunt us. Here’s an example: In a simple chain reaction, zooplankton consume toxins and, in turn, are eaten by anchovies, which are, in turn, preyed upon by yellowfin tuna, which, in turn,

know if Benjamin took Mr. McGuire’s advice, but we do know it took more than a village to create today’s crisis, and it’s up to us to find our way out of the plastic bag in which we’ve put ourselves. No matter who you are, you can make a difference! Participate in local cleanups (listed in the paper for Earth Day) or do your own. It’s a real eyeopener. Keep cloth bags in your car. Forget your bag? Do you really need a plastic bag for your one or two purchased items? Avoid plastics that don’t have a “1” or “2” printed in the triangle as they are not collected by city recycling. Set an example for your children. What we do today will

determine their future. Become an ocean steward. Several laws regulate litter and debris but they do not guarantee everyone complies. If you see a plastic bag or other trash on the ground, pick it up and secure it in a container. That’s what you would do on your property, so expand your ownership boundaries to include all outdoor spaces.

“You can meet the guys behind the name,” Cintas said. Raffle prizes will be given away throughout the event. Cintas said prizes from his shop include apparel, sunglasses and jewelry. “Most of the tenants here will offer raffle prizes,” Cintas said. “I will also have my models giving away promo gear throughout the day.” While enjoying the entertainment, fun seekers will also have the chance to dine on food from some of Liberty Station’s restaurants. Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza will sell pizza by the slice during the event and will give away free slices from 3 to 4 p.m. Panera Bread will provide free drinks and Starbucks will offer free cookies. “Everybody’s getting involved and they all want to be part of the celebration of the coming of summer,” Wear said. The Point Loma Boardroom is located at 2445 Truxtun Road, Suite 108, between Panera Bread and Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza. Cintas, who was born and raised in Point Loma, opened the Point Loma Boardroom 3 1/2 years ago. He decided to start a surf shop after working as a commercial fisherman for 18 years.

“I’ve always been really passionate about surfing,” Cintas said. “My two older brothers encouraged me to follow my passion.” The Point Loma Boardroom sells high-end surf, skate and snowboarding gear and merchandise. This also includes the apparel Cintas himself designed. “We’re like a surf boutique,” Cintas said. Cintas said what makes his shop different from a chain is that making sales is not his top priority. Surfing is his passion and he approaches business that way. “You meet the owner and I actually surf,” Cintas said. “I enjoy meeting people and sharing my wisdom of surfing with people. It’s very much relational. It’s not about the sale.” The Point Loma Boardroom moved to Liberty Station two years ago. Cintas said he is happy with the location. “It is an amazing atmosphere. It’s a great, family-oriented situation,” Cintas said.

Following the Hawaiian dancers will be a 90-minute performance by the Blonde Brothers, a local teenage trio from Sunset Cliffs. “They’re really rad,” Cintas said. “It’s three kids under the age of 15 that just start jamming (guitarist Carlos) Santana and the Allman Brothers. It’s classic.” The entertainment will conclude with the Lomatones performing from 6 to 8 p.m. The area dance band specializes in classic rock. The Point Loma Boardroom will also be putting on a fashion show during the event. The fashion show will showcase “Olivia,” a new spring line that Cintas designed. “It’s a beautiful line of women’s clothing from Indonesia,” Cintas said. “We even make the fabrics from scratch.” Wetsuit manufacturer Matuse and skate company Sector 9 will have representatives at the Spring Surf Fest, providing discounts on merchandise. Festivalgoers will also get a chance to meet professional riders from both companies.

had donated gift baskets toward the silent auction and there were nontangible things she was trying to auction,” Kelly said. “There was no music for the event, so finally the designers pulled out of the show because it was taking too long to get started.” According to Kelly, once the designers left the Catamaran, Sweatte asked a model to announce that the fashion show was cancelled. “One of the models made an announcement… when people asked why, she blamed it on no sound,” Kelly said. Maloney said representatives from the Lupus Foundation, based in New York, are investigating the curtailed benefit. “It does appear the event ended abruptly,” Maloney said. “Because of this, we decided to reach out to Vanessa and asked her to do three things: Cease and desist in using our logo; provide us a report on the outcome of the event; and the third was to turn in any proceeds she may have received from the event.” But Maloney said Sweatte has not returned the Lupus Foundation’s calls or e-mails. “No, we have not heard from her. We are hoping that she will reach out to us and it will turn out to be positive,” Maloney said. “There’s a certain amount of trust and faith you put in people when doing these fund-raising events.” Sweatte did not return calls from the Village News. Statewide Seating owner Amanda Daniels donated a catwalk to Sweatte for Fashion by the Bay.

Daniels said her sister provided clothing for the fashion portion. Sweatte promised each company placement inside Fashion by the Bay’s print program, which she never printed, according to Kelly. “In the beginning, she says she is going to create a program to give to people and she’s going to hand it to people at the door,” Kelly said. “But she didn’t because she said she didn’t get enough sponsorship.” According to Daniels, Sweatte also promised the designers a DVD of the show. “There was supposed to be a program with all the designers’ info and a CD at the end of the show or sometime after it was over,” Daniels said. “Every designer was supposed to get a professional CD with models wearing their stuff.” Kelly and Daniels said they began to worry about one week before the event. Daniels, who owns the Statewide Seating staging company with her family, said she contacted Sweatte regarding the event and thought her sister would benefit by showcasing her designs, she said. “I had a very bad feeling… I’ve been dealing with special events a long time — normally they don’t contact you a few days before,” Daniels said. “This is not like any special event I’ve ever worked on. If you’re coordinating the event, you have your thumb on everything.” Daniels said she continued to provide staging for the show. “I didn’t want to do the project, but everyone here thought we should do it, so we said we’d do it,” Daniels said.

Ask Aubrey

Q.

I’m 55 years old and selfemployed. Can setting up a retirement plan help reduce my income tax come April 15th?

A.

There are numerous taxadvantaged retirement programs available to small business owners and the self employed. One option is to set up a SEPIRA. SEP-IRA allows you to contribute and deduct 20% of net selfemployment income (25% if incorporated) with a maximum dollar contribution of $46,000 for 2008. Because SEP-IRA can be opened up as late as the extended due date of your income tax return, it is perfect for last minute contributions. Consult your tax professional and

www.IRS.gov for details. Looking forward, you might consider establishing a Solo 401(k) by December 31 for tax year 2009. Solo 401(k) allows you to make contribution as both an employer-owner and as an employee. Suppose your net self-employment income is $100,000. Like a SEP-IRA you can deduct 20% of your net earnings (25% if incorporated) as employer. In addition, because you are also your own employee, you can contribute 100 percent of your income up to a maximum of $16,500 for 2009, plus another $5,500 as a catch up contribution after age 50. Your maximum contribution for this scenario is $37,000 for a Solo 401k versus $20,000 for a SEP-IRA. You may be able to put away as much as $54,500 for 2009 if your age and income qualify for that amount. Selecting the right plan is primarily dependent on your income and on the amount of your annual contribution. It can be a great way to potentially reduce your current taxes and help plan for your retirement. As always, please let us know if we can be of assistance in helping you review your retirement planning.

It’s not uncommon for fashion shows to run late, but she was pushing everything back ... AMBER KELLY CATAMARAN

Vanessa Sweatte, seen in a photo from her website, staged a fashion show in La Jolla last July that was presented as a charity benefit for Kids In Distressed Situations. The charity said it never received a cent. Sweatte organized another fashion show Feb. 21 at the Catamaran that purportedly was to benefit the Lupus Foundation.

Daniels said she didn’t feel right leaving her sister’s silk clothing unattended, so she decided to pull the clothing from the show. “Someone else in the family brought the dresses, and I said, ‘If you’re not comfortable leaving them there, then it’s better not to,’” Daniels said. According to Kelly, the Catamaran donated the hotel’s ballroom and seating for the benefit. “The week prior, up until that point, there was nothing she was doing wrong since nobody was paying for the event,” Kelly said. Then, Kelly said she was told about Sweatte’s past event history and confronted Sweatte during the dress rehearsal. “The story written about her got forwarded to me,” Kelly said. “We had a sitting a week prior, so I asked her who her contact was at the Lupus Foundation and that she

should contact them to make sure they were on board.” Sweatte didn’t seem to “waver at all and we went on with the fitting,” Kelly said. Kelly said Sweatte was disorganized and showed up late to rehearsals but didn’t falter until the event. “There was no run-through with sound or I would have known there was no sound. It’s not uncommon for fashion shows to run late, but she was pushing everything back, and that’s what got the designers upset,” Kelly said. “Then she had a quick silent auction and took a five-minute break. One of the designers pulled out and the rest went with her.” According to Kelly, after a model announced there wouldn’t be a fashion show, “The girl working registration handed everybody their money back.” How much money did Sweatte raise for the Lupus Foundation? According to Maloney, Sweatte signed a contract promising she would hand over 100 percent of the event’s proceeds to the organization. “She shouldn’t be making any money off this,” Maloney said. “If she were able to provide an

accounting of her expenses she incurred, such as gas, then she could deduct that.” According to Sweatte’s electronic invitation, she asked businesses to donate from $25 to $500 in advance. In return, donors would receive their business logo inside the event’s program. Sweatte charged $25 at the door but she allegedly never printed or dispersed programs. Kelly said about 100 people attended Fashion by the Bay, including the silent auction. But February’s event wasn’t the first time Sweatte threw a charity bash and then allegedly disappeared. In addition to the July 19, 2008 La Jolla fashion show and silent auction Sweatte held at Prospect Bar & Lounge for KIDS, Sweatte hosted a benefit at the FleetWood nightclub in downtown San Diego in January 2008, said Fleetwood owner Aaron Phillips. Sweatte claimed the Fleetwood event would benefit Children’s Hospital, Phillips said. “We still have a check she forged for all the models. It was supposed to be for a charity, but the charity didn’t know about it,” Phillips said in a previous interview. Meanwhile, Maloney said the Lupus Foundation will investigate Sweatte’s event. “We may or may not decide to reach out to these other groups [affected by Fashion by the Bay],” Maloney said. “I think at this point, we haven’t made a decision on [legal action]. We need to wait and see what happens. “Nonprofits count on these events for fund-raising. It’s a shame that events like these can tarnish good works that so many people are doing.” I

If you read newspapers and magazines, watch TV ads and listen to advice from friends and family, then there are probably too many “shoulds” in your life. These are some of mine — I’m working at reducing some, eliminating others. I should do power walks, swinging my arms to burn extra calories, or use a treadmill so that I maintain my cardiovascular efficiency. I should be working out with weights for strength training so that I can carry my grocery bags I should do tai chi or yoga in order to be flexible and prevent falls. I should eat right — less sugar, less salt, less fat, less caffeine, less red meat — which more often than not results in less taste. So even if I don’t live longer it sure will seem longer. I should floss and drink enough water to stay hydrated. I should get regular check-ups and sleep six to eight hours a night. I should be environmentally responsible and not throw a cherry pit out of the car window. I should be politically aware and read even the boring stuff about the economic policies of foreign countries. I should be financially prudent and not invest in the latest excitingsounding research my friends are all talking about. I should clean out my closet and give away all those clothes I’ve held onto for the past ten years but that may fit again after I lose weight (I plan to do this for sure every morning as I wake up, but it gets post-

ales associate Joanne Thornton recently joined the Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage La Jolla office,” announced Branch Manager, Jeff Nunn. “We are very excited to have Joanne join us here in La Jolla. With over 21 years experience as a broker/agent, Joanne brings tremendous knowledge to our office.” Thornton began her real estate career as a broker in New Mexico. After nearly 14 years in New Mexico, Thornton decided to move to Boulder, Colorado to become a member of her sister’s real estate team with Coldwell Banker. However, having had a vacation home in La Jolla Shores since 2000, it was only a matter of time before Thornton and her two Pugs, Gina and Pugsley, decided to call La Jolla their permanent home. Because her two Pugs are her closest companions, Thornton calls herself the “pugnacious” realtor. Her clients know her for being extremely persistent, working on every detail until the transaction is completed. With Thornton’s expertise in technology, her clients are offered a variety of ways to market their homes or purchase property. Thornton specializes in La Jolla, Pacific Beach, Downtown, North Park and Mission Hills. In her spare time, Thornton loves to travel.

meaningful life, be there for others while taking time for myself. I should not care what others think about the way I look, sound or live my life. I should be true to myself and do the necessary in terms of my values but also do the fun and pleasurable things to boost my immune system. I should find something challenging to do, such as learning new programs on my computer, in order to increase the number of neurons in my brain, which will decrease my chances of getting Alzheimer’s. I should do crossword puzzles and play word games to keep stimulating my brain in order to make new synaptic connections. I should refocus, regroup and send reaffirming messages to my brain that I’m confident, peaceful and happy. And finally, I should be confident, peaceful and happy instead of anxious, exhausted and running in circles. So, now it is your turn. First, list all your “shoulds.” Then think of the following categories: 1. Enhances my life. 2. Gives meaning or pleasure. 3. Detracts from my life. 4. Is a burden but necessary. 5. Is a carryover from earlier life injunctions from parents, teachers, religious leaders or other authority figures and therefore dispensable. 6. Neither enhances nor detracts, so do it only if there is extra time and energy and it provides benefit. Doing the above exercise falls under the category of simplifying one’s life. Getting rid of some of your “shoulds” may just save you from being anxious, exhausted and running in circles. I

You have to explain that,” Smith quips to former Chargers quarter-

back Drew Brees, adding that Brees holds a serious grudge for Smith’s role in “ripping your soul out of your body as you had to leave San Diego.” But stuff like that is only a cover. Beneath the fun — and there’s a ton of it every morning — lies a singular commitment to competition as a reflection of the local dialogue. Kaplan and Smith are exemplary ambassadors thereof. For them, sports is as much an art form as great radio itself. Kaplan, the impassioned intellectual. Smith, the extraordinarily affable harlequin. Together eight years in a business legendary for its turnover. The reason lies in the authenticity of the banter and of the men’s backgrounds them-

selves. Both were in sports long before radio called; Kaplan, 39, kicked the daylights out of the football for the University of Pittsburgh, and Smith, 47, is a former Chargers linebacker and a twotime All-American from the University of Arkansas. Their history has its twists and turns — but the keyword is “their,” with both men holding close to their roots in the sporting life. “I don’t think either of us really try to be journalists,” Kaplan told San Diego Downtown News, a sister publication. “There’s a real attitude that seems to come with the notion that ‘I’m a journalist; I know more; I’m more inside and I’m smarter than you are.’ Neither of us really feel that way.”

That trait filters into a sizeable segment of the show’s fan base. “If you’re not a Padres fan or if baseball’s too slow for you,” Kaplan explained, “you may not come [out] for baseball games at night, but you can’t wait to get your dose of Scott and BR in the morning.” The show seeks a demographic of 25- Co-host Billy Ray Smith (left) muzzles Scott Kaplan, to 54-year-old anchor of morning radio’s “The Scott & BR Show.” The males.

You can meet her at the County Animal Shelter in Carlsbad, 2481 Palomar Airport Road. Hours are 9:30–5:30 Tuesday through Saturday. Call 858-205-9974 for more information.

Determining the value of their service or product is advised by this publication. In order to avoid misunderstandings, some advertisers do not offer "employment" but rather supply the readers with manuals, directories and other materials designed to help their clients establish mail order selling and other businesses at home. Under NO circumstance should you send any money in advance or give the client your checking, license ID, or credit card numbers. Also beware of ads that claim to guarantee loans regardless of credit and note that if a credit repair company does business only over the phone it's illegal to request any money before delivering its service. All funds are based in US dollars. 800 numbers may or may not reach Canada.
