La Jolla skate park voted down Board rejects proposed facility, but some members cry foul

UCSD study shows mom’s daily hours with kids have spiked BY ADRIANE TILLMAN | VILLAGE NEWS

BY ADRIANE TILLMAN | VILLAGE NEWS A mother’s campaign to build a skateboard park at the recreation center in La Jolla was voted down by Parks and Recreation, Inc. board members April 28. Some of the board members cried foul, however, calling the vote inappropriate because no project was actually presented to the board to vote upon. Marnie Gavit, the mother who has campaigned for the skateboard park, had not yet formulated specific plans about the exact location or design of the proposed skate park. Board member Mary Coakley said the board should wait until it had more information and received a proposal before voting on a skate park. “I’m not pro or con for the skate park at the recreation center, but we don’t have enough information to make a decision at this point,” said Coakley, who abstained from voting on the issue. Parks and Recreation, Inc. provides recommendations specifically on the recreation center to the city. Council president Chip Rome said most of the board members who voted against locating a skate park at the recreation center have been on the board for a few years as opposed to proponents of the skate park who joined the board in recent months. He said the public had four months to provide input and that everyone had the opportunity to voice their opinions. Rome personally believes the recreation center is not the appropriate location for a skate park; although, as president, he did not vote on the matter. “While a skate park might be a good idea in La Jolla, at a historical, mixed-use facility across from churches, a preschool, museums, a women’s club and residences, it’s

Women armed with college degrees and career opportunities have increasingly morphed into soccer moms, dedicated to carting their children from activity to activity over the past two decades. University of California, San Diego (UCSD) economist Valerie Ramey discovered she was falling into this description until her family asked her to dial back the stress. Interested in the way parents allocate their limited resource of time, Ramey, along with her husband, Garey, began researching the amount of time parents nationwide spent with their children from the 1960s to the present and found the number of hours have skyrocketed in the past two decades. Parents were gradually spending less time with their children from the 1960s through the early ’90s before the trend reversed. College-educated mothers began spending nine hours more per week with their children than in the previous decades, while non-college-educated women spent four to five more hours per week with their children. Fathers also began spending more time with their children, although the increase was less. “Nine hours per week is a quarter of a full-time job,” Ramey said. “That’s just the increase that [mothers] experienced.” The Rameys searched for answers to explain the data and discovered evidence points to one factor: parents are worried about their children getting into top universities and are on a mission to cultivate them into standout individuals from an early age. The Rameys dismissed the following theories because they couldn’t be corroborated with the data available: a) Parents spend more time with their children now than in the decades before because they are more worried about their safety; b) people have more say in becoming parents and only people who love children chose to have them; and c) parents have more flexible work schedules than in the past. Ramey delved into the college hypothesis. She found more people were graduating from high school and heading to college in the mid-’90s but prestigious colleges were not increasing their acceptance rates. “People perceived that there was much more competition for slots at good colleges like the Ivy League, UC schools and good liberal-arts colleges,” Ramey said. Ramey checked her hypothesis against time spent by parents with their children in Canada, where the culture and language are SEE MOTHERS, Page 6

Cruise puts thrill of nature in your sights BY ADRIANE TILLMAN | VILLAGE NEWS There’s a whole other world to explore at the Los Coronado Islands where bluefooted boobies nest, where Elephant seals come to mate and where pods of dolphins race alongside fishing boats. Capt. Ben Griffith knows the four islands well. For the past five years, he’s ferried people to these small Mexican islands on his fishing boat in a six-hourlong excursion called the Nature Cruise. During the trip, Griffith narrates the history of the San Diego harbor and the Los Coronado islands, and points out the var-

ious bird species and marine mammals. On the way to the islands, it’s common to spot the back or tail of a migrating gray whale, as well as pods of dolphins — from bottlenose to Risso’s — playfully riding the waves alongside the boat. “I think the whole idea is that the dolphins aren’t going to perform for you,” Griffith said. “They’re looking at the people as much as the people are looking at them. The idea is that you can see these animals in the wild.” As the boat approaches the islands, scores of sea lions belly flop down the rocks and into the water to greet the fish-

ing vessel in anticipation it will attract fish. Waves crash onto the steep rock of the islands and into caves hollowed out over the years. The American oystercatcher walks along the rocks, drilling its long, bright-red beak into mussels and shellfish for food during low tide. Thousands of brown pelicans and three varieties of cormorants live on the rocks. At times, the rare Xantus’s Murrelet is seen. Only a few fishermen live on the island, raising bluefin tuna for a private fishing company. A humpback whale breaks the surface of the water during a boat excursion known as the

NEWS NEWSbriefs Meetings to discuss trolley extensions The San Diego Association of Governments has initiated scoping for the MidCoast Corridor Transit project, in which county voters approved an 11-mile extension of the San Diego Trolley from the Old Town TransitCenter to University City, University Towne Centre and University of California, San Diego as part of the TransNet half-cent sales tax for transportation. Five meetings will be held throughout May to allow the public and agencies to learn about alternatives to address the corridor’s transit needs and provide input on areas of focus in the development of the draft environmental document. The first meeting took place May 5, and next will take place Tuesday, May 11 from 3 to 6 p.m. at the Price Center East Ballroom on the UCSD Campus, 9500 Gilman Drive. Another meeting will convene the next day on Wednesday, May 12, from 4 to 7 p.m. in the Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center’s Garfield Theatre, 4126 Executive Drive.

A sidewalk café and restaurant is set to reinvigorate the corner of Prospect Street where Bistro 101 and the Hard Rock Café previously operated since city staff approved permits for the Aroma bakery and Barfly restaurant on April 29. The city’s Development Services Department approved the sidewalk café, despite the fact the outdoor tables and chairs will leave less than eight feet of clearance for pedestrians as mandated by the Village’s code for development, the planned district ordinance (PDO). Project Manager Tim Daly said city staff believed the reduced set-back was warranted. “Obviously, it’s the palm trees along the sidewalk that’s the impediment,” Daly said. “Only a small portion of the area would be less than eight feet.” The La Jolla Community Planning Association — the Village’s advisory board for development — had voted 123-1 to reject the project on April 1 because board members didn’t want to undermine the importance of the PDO.

Banks must work with clients to support their plans The Year Ahead TORY NIXON There is little question that 2009 was one of the most difficult years in recent memory for both businesses and consumers alike. With 2009 now in the proverbial “rear-view mirror” and first quarter of 2010 nearly gone, the economic outlook for San Diego is beginning to look more promising. Consumers’ confidence is improving and home prices are stabilizing. The difficult part of this economic recovery, however, remains the high unemployment rate. This, too, is stabilizing and should show signs of improvement later this year as recovery continues. In 2009, California Bank & Trust (CB&T) approved more than $365 million in new credit to local San Diego businesses. The newly-approved loans were primarily for commercial real estate, working capital lines of credit and term financing for small- to mid-sized businesses. As we move further into 2010, what we, and banks of all sizes, are seeing is that demand for loans has dropped significantly. To grow the balance sheet, banks must work with their current clients to offer them financial solutions to support

their plans for both growth and longterm financial health and stability. At CB&T, we actively manage our existing relationships while continuing to reach out to new clients with our communitybased brand of banking. Community banks like us are very connected to their clients and to their community. This enables us to understand the economic conditions in the local marketplace in a way that larger, national institutions cannot. Decision-making and lending authority is also kept at the local level. This is critical in being able to actively meet the financial and credit needs of small- to mid-sized businesses in the San Diego market. Expanding new areas of business, such as our mortgage and multi-family lending is also of interest and important in meeting the needs of the communities we serve. In addition, CB&T continues to have a strong presence in SBA lending, and we will continue to stay active in that market. Overall, our goal at CB&T is to create and deliver the best financial solutions possible to meet the financial needs of the San Diego market place.

5 LJHS team places at national competition BY ADRIANE TILLMAN | VILLAGE NEWS

Youngsters from La Jolla Elementary School who participated in the April 28 R.E.M.S comCOURTESY PHOTO petition show their enthusiasm.

Students duke it out in physics, math BY ADRIANE TILLMAN | VILLAGE NEWS La Jolla High School physics teacher Martin Teachworth unleashed his latest idea for coaxing the next generation to pursue worthwhile careers in math, science and engineering: stage a tournament in which teams of elementary children compete for glory and prizes. The outcome appeared promising. Teachworth reported that third, fourth and fifth graders “bounced off the roof” in excitement trying to outsmart their opponents during the first Rendezvous Engineering Mathematics Science (R.E.M.S) competition held April 28 at the La Jolla High School. “It was like going over Niagara Falls in a barrel,” Teachworth said. “It was wild, fast and exciting. It was exhausting for everyone.” Students were quizzed on topics across the sciences: “What is the name of the pivot on a seesaw?” (Answer: fulcrum) “How many protons does nitrogen have?” (Answer: seven) Teachworth hatched the idea for R.E.M.S after brainstorming with Ben

Foroozan, CEO of the Rendezvous Science Center on Fay Avenue in La Jolla. The Rendezvous Science Center sponsors programs, including R.E.M.S, throughout San Diego to excite and equip students for exploring science and math. “If you don’t plant the seeds at the lower levels, by the time they get to high school, you’ve lost them,” Teachworth said. “If you don’t get them hooked by seventh grade, they probably won’t pursue a career in math, science or engineering.” The veteran physics teacher spread the word about the R.E.M.S competition to elementary schools throughout the county. Four schools sent a total of 28 teams, including La Jolla and Bird Rock Elementary. Teachworth hopes to generate more response for the next tournament, which has not yet been scheduled. Teachworth believes the competitive games also prepares students for their state standardized tests. “Kids will say, ‘This is fun,’ and ‘I want to win,’ and they’ll learn materials for the competition and will also learn them for the classroom,” Teachworth said.

Five students at La Jolla High School submerged themselves in knowledge of the ocean and swept away the competition to capture fourth place at the National Ocean Science Bowl held April 23 to 25 in Saint Petersburg, Fla. Three hundred teams from across the country competed for 25 spots at the nationals. Marshfield High School in Wisconsin snagged first place.

meeting twice weekly at 6:30 a.m. to study marine science. They met with researchers at Scripps Institution of Oceanography and scoured textbooks, websites and magazines for information. They scrimmaged with other teams throughout San Diego. “They’re like ambassadors for the ocean,” said coach and marine science teacher Dave James. “They’re really good at talking to other students and informing them about what’s happening.” At the National Ocean Science Bowl, students buzzed in to answer questions

such as, “Which ocean current moves the largest volume of water?” Before arriving at La Jolla High two years ago, James worked as a marine biologist for 20 years for various organizations including Scripps Institution of Oceanography and the National Marine Fisheries Service. James said some of the questions even stumped him. “They asked some questions that are pretty obscure,” James said. “Some of the questions were graduate-school difficulty … It sorts out the good teams from the average teams.”

conclusion. “They say they have people coming into their office completely stressed out because they have no time, and because they feel they need to spend all this time catering their kids to various activities and worrying about their education,” Ramey said. Ramey, a Stanford-educated economist, worries about the implications of her findings on the careers of women. She recognizes the benefits of children playing sports but questions the need for parents to enroll their children in three sports or sign them up for multiple extracurricular activities. “It represents a huge reallocation of resources,” Ramey said. “Historically, women didn’t participate much in the labor force because they spent so much time doing home production activities …

If, for some reason, parents feel that the amount of time they need to put into their children has gone up, it could have dramatic effects on the labor market.” Ramey said her entire family is happier since she realized she had gone overboard in orchestrating the lives of her children and has since changed her habits. Ramey said her research didn’t address the impact of the time spent on children but pointed to a survey conducted by researcher Ellen Galinsky in which children told her the one thing they would most like to change is that their parents are less stressed. The survey was published in 2000 in Galinsky’s book, “Ask the Children.” “The children didn’t ask for more time with their parents,” Ramey said. Ramey dubbed her study “The Rug Rat Race.” Read it at http://econ.ucsd .edu/~vramey.

Ask The Lawyer


I am confused about the estate Question: tax exemption amount because it has changed. What effect does it have on my parent’s estate? There is an unlimited federal estate exemption this year. No matter the size of your estate if you die in 2010, there will not be any estate tax on it. You must file an informational return by the due date of the individual tax return. However, in 2011, the federal estate tax exemption amount changes to One Million Dollars. Any estate over that amount will be required to pay an estate tax. The tax rate starts at 41% and goes up to 55%. That means if your parent dies next year and has an estate of 2 million dollars, there will be an estate tax of $410,000.00. That is a whole lot of money. What can be done about this? There are a number of things that can be done to help save some taxes. The first is for married couples to have a Marital Trust or AB Trust. This must be done while both spouses are still alive and it will shelter Two Million Dollars from estate tax. I even advise couples to get married to save $100,000 or more in taxes! Another way to reduce the size of an estate is to gift. One person can give $13,000 per year to anyone. You can set up irrevocable trust and fund it with some of your assets. You can give a gift of One Million dollars also. You will have to file a gift tax return, but no tax is due on it. Of course, gifts to charities can be made in any amount now and at your death and that amount will not be included in your estate for taxes. Let us sit down together and plan to save taxes.

similar. but the hierarchy and competitiveness among colleges is vastly different. “Most people in Canada go to the college in their province,” Ramey said. “There are no SATs, no AP classes and extracurricular activities count for zero in terms of getting into college compared to the U.S.” Ramey found the amount of time college-educated Canadians spent with their children from the late ’80s to the present remained flat during the same time it skyrocketed in the U.S. when compared to the previous decades.

SPORTS Successful Golf Fundraiser



Beach and Tennis Club serves up trio of senior tennis tournaments BY ANTHONY GENTILE | VILLAGE NEWS

La Jolla High Foundation held its annual golf tournament fundraiser at the La Jolla Country Club on April 12. Pictured here are Bill Berwin and part of his fantastic foursome, Eric Figge, Chris Eddy — and Murray Helm took the photo. Berwin shot his first hole in one after more than 30 years of playing golf. "This has always been a dream and on my bucket list," Berwin said. Sadly, the $10,000 prize went with another hole, but nevertheless, Berwin is ecstatic and still smiling. Most notable for his transformation of Bird Rock with the development of Bird Rock Village (Starbucks), Montrachet on Eads Avenue, 848 Prospect and, most recently, Miramare on Coast Boulevard, Berwin is a La Jolla High alumnus. Special thanks go to Chris Smith for sharing his place with Bill.


Nearly 300 of the best senior tennis players in the nation plan to cause a racket in La Jolla next week. La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club will host the United States Tennis Association (USTA) National Senior Women’s Hard Court Tennis Championships from May 10 to 16. “A lot of the ladies that play in this tournament have played in the professional tour,” said Conan Lorenzo, the club’s director of tennis. “Then you have your local tennis players here in Southern California who have national rankings and they’re trying to hit against the bigwigs.” Next week’s tournament is one of four grand slams on the USTA senior circuit, which includes clay, grass and indoor tournaments for players 50 and older. Lorenzo said matches typically feature less power — but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. “As players get older, they use a lot more of the angles and spins to their advantage,” Lorenzo said. “That’s what makes it fascinating — you see more of a point being developed over the time of each point as opposed to maybe a three- or four-ball point.” According to local participant Sally Huss, senior tennis tournaments are one of the few areas in life where people relish getting older. This year, Huss is eligible for the 70s Division for the first year, playing in the doubles with friend Sheila Palmer.

“The fun thing is that people get very excited when they get older because in their first year when they’re in a new division, they’re the youngster in that division,” Huss said. Huss is a former Wimbledon semifinalist and junior champion who plays between three and four times a week. The La Jolla resident admittedly expects to be unseeded headed into the tournament. “We go into it to give it our all but we don’t expect anything. We’re always dark horses in this,” Huss said. “We don’t go and play any other tournament but we play this big tournament because it is local.” The women’s tournament is one of three senior events the La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club will host next week. The club will also hold its 38th annual men’s Spring Senior Championships from May 10-16 and the LURIE World Cup on May 15-16, featuring men’s international matches for players 90 and older. “There’s a great camaraderie amongst the players; it’s a pretty cool thing,” Huss said. “They all have a purpose when they come here and there’s an emphasis on being in good shape for an older person.” La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club is located at 2000 Spindrift Drive in La Jolla and admission to each of the tournaments is free, with free parking available in surrounding neighborhoods and additionally at the club for $5.

BUSINESS This La Jolla spa offers ‘sanctuary’ from daily stress BY HILLARY SCHULER-JONES VILLAGE NEWS

Amid the hustle and bustle of La Jolla’s active community lies a relaxing refuge from the stress of everyday life. SK Sanctuary, located at 6919 La Jolla Blvd., provides a peaceful retreat and a full line of spa and medical services designed to make customers look beautiful and feel rejuvenated. The 7,000-square-foot facility, decorated with an inviting Tuscan theme, was built to be a haven from the rigors of daily life, said Lyn Tisdale Krant, SK Sanctuary’s chief operations officer. “We just really wanted it to be a retreat from the stress of the outside world, so we created this oasis. You really do feel like you are getting away when you walk in,” she said. The day spa was a natural extension of owner Dr. Richard Krant’s 32-year cosmetic surgery practice. He opened the facility adjacent to his cosmetic surgery center, SK Clinic, 10 years ago to give his patients access to quality pre- and postoperative treatments that would aid in the healing process. Today, however, the spa’s popularity has grown so much

that only about 30 percent of its customers visit as a result of procedures at the clinic, Krant said. The remaining 70 percent of customers indulge in the spa’s many aesthetic and medicalgrade services. The spa features a full hair and nail salon, 12 treatment rooms for facials, massages and medical-grade services like injectables, chemical peels and cystic-acne treatments, and a laser center for hair removal and skin resurfacing procedures. The spa also carries a full range of cosmeceuticals — medical-grade cosmetic products like anti-aging serums and moisturizers that can only be sold at facilities that staff medical personnel. To book an appointment or get more information about a procedure or full-day getaway, contact the spa at (858) 4592400, or visit their website at Editors Note: SK Sanctuary and SK Clinic recently won the La Jolla Village News Reader’s Choice Awards for both Best Cosmetic Surgeon (Dr. Richard Krant) and Best Day Spa, but we inadvertently failed to print SK Sanctuary’s write-up in the day spa category.

A wedding: new connections, old reconnections Doing it Better Natasha Josefowitz, Ph.D. The phone rings, it’s my daughter. “Mom, what are you wearing to the wedding?” “Remember the lovely two-piece, gray silk dress I wore at your daughter’s Bat Mitzvah?” “Mom, she was 13. She’s 31!” “Oh,” I said. “It’s vintage!” And so I wore that dress at my grandson’s wedding in Palm Beach. I had found an old girdle in the corner of a drawer, and although I couldn’t really bend in it, the dress fit

fine, and everyone said I looked great. (Well, great for 83, anyway.) The wedding pulled together about 40 members of our extended family, plus my son’s high school and college friends and, of course, the bride’s family’s assorted cousins and friends. We were 300 people trying to reconnect with the old and to get to know the new. The tall, balding man came rushing over with a hug — the last time I saw him, he was 16-years-old, sitting at my kitchen table at 2 a.m. discussing colleges, careers and girls. He introduced me to his son, saying, “She knew me at your age.” The cousins, nieces and nephews last seen thirty-plus years ago — when they were kids —had kids of their own. We were able, to my surprise, to pick up where we left off — talked of intimate life issues not usually shared with strangers. I learned about rocky marriages, difficult children, work problems, and also about the successes, the proud moments, the hopes for the future. My husband had looked forward to meeting all these relatives from my past life, so I missed him especially, but my role as a widowed matriarch was a new adventure. I took advantage of it — dispensing advice from my elderly perch. Weddings are a joyous opportunity to see people we were once connected to but lost track of, to spend time with those whose genes we share, but never met. The new in-laws had organized everything to perfection — from a dinner at Mara a Lago — Donald Trump’s old haunting grounds — to the wedding in the Flagler Museum decorated

with white orchids and candlelight. Trolleys would pick us up and take us back to our hotels. The newlyweds, obviously in love, were a joy to see. Everyone agreed that they were perfectly matched. The families liked each other. We were each happy about the choice our children made. I love my new granddaughter, as they do their new son. It is wonderful when the newly-blended families raised their children with similar values. It makes it easy not only to feel close, but to also become friends. Having quiet time with both my children, my daughter from Toronto and my son from London, with their

respective spouses and children was a treat seldom achieved due to distances and schedules. I savored every moment. It just so happens that my three grandsons are incredibly handsome, brilliant, kind and fun to be with. I danced with all three to very loud music and to lyrics they knew, but I couldn’t understand. The hotel we all stayed at, the Breakers, has five swimming pools, several restaurants and endless beaches. The thoughtful in-laws had rented two cabanas for us by the pool where we all congregated during the day, ordering Caesar salads and fish tacos with small children playing

together, every one of them attached to hand-held video games. After the final after-the-wedding brunch at our in-laws’ home, we wondered when we would all meet again. Many had to stay on as European airports shut down due to the erupting volcano. Not a bad place to await departures. I flew home to unpacking, stacks of mail, phone calls, e-mails and cheerful greetings from friends who said they had missed me, but especially to happy memories of a perfect wedding in a perfect setting, warmed by the souvenir of being lovingly-embraced by our new family.

What to Do to Avoid Sibling Problems When Caring for Mom Today, due in part, to blended families, the principles of family life that you believe in may no longer be valid. But because our parents are living longer and we still want to be connected, siblings are probably the most important part of the care giving structure. In Francine Russo’s book, “They’re Your Parents, Too: How Siblings Can Survive Their Parents Aging Without Driving Each Other Crazy,” she describes the “anger/guilt gridlock” that can cause great challenges for siblings in their efforts to help Mom and Dad. Part of this stems from the assumption that the siblings don’t need to discuss what they’re going to do for their parents because they will just know. A healthy relationship with your brothers and sisters requires respect, trust, reciprocity, affection and being able to disagree without passing judgment. How can the children work together to care for their parents, even if they can’t share the same exact responsibilities? Here are some tips to consider: Talk to each other and your parents before a crisis to learn about powers of attorney, living wills and long term care insurance. Ask your parents what they want, don’t assume and get it in writing. Deal with the most immediate issues first, such as safety. Get everyone involved in the decision making process. Stay in touch and apprised of any changes through emails or telephone. Realize and accept that there will be differences of opinions. Don’t accuse, try to reach a consensus for your parent’s sake.

Bowls for a good cause BY ADRIANE TILLMAN | VILLAGE NEWS Local potters are shaping the last of the ceramic bowls to sell at the fourth annual Empty Bowls fundraiser to benefit the impoverished on Saturday, May 8 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the United Methodist Church at 6063 La Jolla Blvd. Participants can choose between hundreds of donated ceramic bowls formed in all shapes and colors, and fill them with soup donated from area restaurants for $20 each. Organizers hope to exceed the $1,300 raised last year. “Each time we use the bowl that we buy, we are reminded of those folks in our community who don’t have anything to fill their bowl,” said potter and event spokeswoman Giovanna Iaffaldano. Proceeds will benefit the nonprofit Third Avenue Charitable Organization (TACO), which feeds the homeless and working poor. TACO has operated out of downtown for the past 34 years. Potters from 40 different organizations have been shaping bowls throughout the year for Empty Bowls, including students from The Bishop’s School and the University of California, San Diego Craft Center. Soup will be donated from area restaurants including Beaumont’s, The Fishery, The Cottage, French Gourmet and George’s at the Cove. Potters Lynn Render and Lynn Zimmer have organized the event for the past four years. A Michigan high school art teacher started Empty Bowls as a fundraiser for the hungry in 1990, which has since grown into an international fundraiser.

Colorful arrangements such as these will be available to purchase at this weekend’s FILE PHOTOS annual Gardeners’ Market


Members of the La Jolla Garden Club are busily clipping and arranging flowers from their gardens, potting plants and baking homemade goodies to sell for last-minute Mother’s Day gifts. The club will hold its annual Gardeners’ Market on Saturday, May 8 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in front of Chase Bank at 7777 Girard Ave. “It’s a fun event because all of our members can participate in the thing they do best, whether it’s baking or making flower arrangements or whether it’s potted plants,” said Fran Sheinbein, who is chairing the event along with her sister-in-law, Ruth Sheinbein. Each year, the garden club hosts the market the Saturday before Mother’s Day. The flowers, plants and baked goods are tied up in bows, ready to give to mothers the following morning. Note cards displaying photographs of the mem-

bers’ colorful gardens are also on sale. The energetic gardeners aren’t simply concerned about showering mothers with gifts, however, they are fundraising to provide $4,000 in scholarships to city college students studying horticulture. “The group started 40 years ago by a very small group of women who wanted to give back to the community in the way of civic events or civic beautification,” Fran said. The La Jolla Garden Club meets every third Tuesday of the month at 1:30 p.m. in the La Jolla Lutheran Church, 7111 La Jolla Blvd. For more information contact Fran at (858) 450-1769.

Aquarium offers grunion program BY ADRIANE TILLMAN | VILLAGE NEWS The spawning season has arrived for silvery grunion fish to ride the waves ashore en masse to deposit their eggs in the sand. During the full and new moons when the tide is high, thousands of male and female fish cover the beach for less than a minute to spawn. Birch Aquarium will host trips to the beach to watch the grunion spawn, preA grunion spawns in the sand — a sight awaiting those patient enough to comb beaches at ceded by a short film about the fish, on night along Southern California’s coast through August.

May 14, May 28 and May 29 from 9:30 to 11:30 p.m. The excursion costs $12 and fills up quickly, organizers said. Call (858) 822-5331 to RSVP, or e-mail “If you’ve never been on a grunion run, it’s nice to go on these programs because we can explain what you’re seeing,” said Charina Layman, public programs coordinator for Birch Aquarium. Grunion wait for high tides to send them far up on the beach to lay their eggs in dry sand. The females dig them-

selves into the ground to create a nest and deposit their eggs. The males wrap around the females and release milt, which flows down the female’s body to fertilize the eggs. The fish catch the next waves back, leaving the eggs on high, dry ground to hatch for 10 days. People are prohibited from taking the fish during April and May and must obtain a fishing license from June through August. Fo r m o r e i n f o r m a t i o n , v i s i t




Modern master Luc Leestemaker returns to La Jolla BY WILL BOWEN | VILLAGE NEWS In early June, Luc Leestemaker, the Dutch-American modern master of the abstract impressionistic landscape, will return to La Jolla for a lecture/booksigning and the opening of an art exhibit. The event takes place on June 1 at 7:30 p.m. in the Athenaeum Library at 1008 Wall St. Leestemaker will discuss his new book titled “The Intentional Artist,” which is a collection of autobiographical stories about the creative process and overcoming the blocks to creativity. This lecture promises to be inspirational and of benefit to individuals from all walks of life, including the business profession, because it will discuss creative thinking and the universal process of success attained by holding onto one’s own creativity. The opening of an art exhibit of Leestemaker’s works called “A Retrospective: 20 years of Painting in America” will take place on Saturday June 5 from 6 to 9 p.m. in the Madison Gallery at 1020 Prospect St., Suite 130. Many examples of Leestemaker’s large 4-foot by 4-foot, colorful landscapes from the past 20 years will be on display. Leestemaker was born in the Netherlands in 1957 to a family of painters. He started his own career as a poet, tried art beginning at age 16, then a variety of occupations including gardener, actor and taxi driver before founding his own successful consulting firm. In 1990, he moved to Los Angles to be with his actress girlfriend where he took up painting again full time. He again became very successful and

Council. Some of the well-known private collectors of Leestemaker’s work include former presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, former First Lady Nancy Reagan and actresses Drew Barrymore and Whoopie Goldberg. Art critic Peter Frank said Leestemaker is “something of a wanderer who wonders what is out there … he embodies the spirit of the 14th century Dutch masters but with a mod-

ern abstract approach.” Frank said Leestemaker “paints with abandon but makes art with a purpose … his hurricanes of paint have the ability to transport our spirit to a place of ecstasy.” Frank believes that Leestemaker “fulfills the role of artist as shaman who is here to fill the world with spirituality and make it whole.” Indeed, Leestemaker, who pays tribute to Ruysdael, Rembrandt, William Turner, John Constable, Picasso, de Kooning, Rothko and Kiefer as his major influences, is more than just an abstract painter. He is also a philosopher, motivational speaker, success guru and savvy businessman who sees creative thinking as the thinking of the future and has much to teach us all. For instance, he said, “Mistakes are not simply learning experiences … they are also aesthetic experiences,” or “Don’t just expect the unexpected … hope for it!” Even better, “Savor the unanticipated life … take risks … seize the moment!” And best,”Opening up to a curiosity about life is the real art.” Lorna York, the owner of the Madison Gallery where Leestemaker’s work will be shown, said, “I invite everyone to come down to the gallery to meet and experience the essence of this exceptional man.” York thinks, like many others, that, “Having a Leestemaker painting in one’s home or office is what it is all about because they have the uncanny ability to bring extraordinary power and inspiration into your daily life.”


with Vincent Andrunas Well, they’ve never done it before, but this one was so much fun that they’ll probably do it again! To any fan of flight, the internationally-famed San Diego Air and Space Museum is one of the finest treasures of Balboa Park. There, the story of aviation history unfolds through a myriad of displays, from early hot-air balloons to modern manned space capsules. The museum presents a stunning array of aviation memorabilia, with 60 aircraft on display. Many in their collection are meticulously restored originals, including a Pitts Special, a Ford Trimotor, a P51-D Mustang, a PBY-5A Catalina seaplane, a MiG-17 and a Lockheed Blackbird. Others are precise replicas, such as their Wright Gliders, their Spirit of St. Louis and their Lockheed Vega 5B (a mock-up from the movie “Amelia”). Altogether, it’s a wonderful collection to see. The museum has been the venue for a number of exciting social gatherings, but the closest they had ever come to a fashion show was their display of vintage airline crew uniforms. That changed in late April, when they held a fundraiser for their educational programs. They called the party “Fashion Takes Flight,” and it offered a silent auction, food stations serving signature libations and dishes from around the world, and the museum’s first-ever fashion show. San Diego “Style Guy” Leonard Simpson was the show’s producer, while Sally Thornton served as honorary chair, and KUSI’s evening anchor Heather Moore was the emcee. The party took place in the museum’s enclosed circular central pavilion in which several aircraft are suspended from above. The show’s opening scene presented models in military dress uniforms, on a stage just under a large military helicopter with its main rotor turning as if ready to take off. With the roaring sound effects and intense music, it was very reminiscent of the famous scene from the play “Miss Saigon.” Leonard’s show featured couture fash-

Three years ago, Margo Schwab and husband Scott Johnston adopted an 18-monthold German boxer that had been through two families already. They named her Kima, which Margo said means “Angel.” Kima doesn’t have arthritis, but some of her friends do — so they let Kima help out at the Arthritis Foundation Walk event last year. The event saw a 50 percent revenue increase — so she’s been asked back for this year, too. She’s also been asked to be a “Junior Lifeguard K9 Unit” at the Heart Association’s Heart Beach Ball on June 12. Kima celebrated her honors recently with a party at Café Milano. She invited dozens of her (human) friends and wore one of her favorite dresses — she has more than 30 outfits in her wardrobe!

His efforts to understand how immature nerve cells in the brain can be induced to become mature, functioning nerve cells may eventually be harnessed to repair aged and damaged brains and spinal cords. The APS has more than 1,000 members worldwide, 80 percent of whom are from the United States and 250 of whom have received the Nobel Prize. • Salk Institute professor Terrence J. Sejnowski, Ph.D., has been elected to the National Academy of Sciences for his work on neural networks that

helped spark the neural networks revolution in computing during the 1980s. Dr. Sejnowski studies how computer simulations can perform operations that resemble the activities of the cerebral cortex, in what he hopes will produce new knowledge about how the human brain can learn and store memories. His findings may ultimately help provide medical specialists with clues to combating Alzheimer’s disease and other memory disorders. As of today, 16 of the Salk Institute’s 60 faculty are members of the National Academy of Sciences.

Neighborhood House Association Unveils Barbara Y. Fielding Early Learning Academy The Neighborhood House Association (NHA) unveiled its Barbara Y. Fielding Early Learning Academy on April 9, 2010. The child development center, formerly known as 41st Street Early Head Start, is part of the NHA 41st St. Social Service Center that has been serving the community for more than 40 years. The academy serves 32 children ages 18 months to three years of age as part of the NHA administered Federal Head Start program. The site was renamed in honor of Barbara Y. Fielding, a true pioneer of the federal Head Start program in San Diego. Mrs. Fielding held numerous key positions with Head Start throughout a career that spanned four decades and started with the inception of the Head Start program in 1965. NHA was honored to have Mrs. Fielding spend more than 30 years as director of the Head Start program before her retirement in 2006. In her tenure with NHA, Mrs. Fielding was instrumental in growing the program from 900 children to serving more than 10,000 San Diego children and families. Throughout her career, Mrs. Fielding fine-tuned her vision of pro-family services and assured that the progressive expansion of NHA’s Head Start program kept pace with the

rapidly-changing needs of local families. Her creativity and expertise resulted in an innovative Head Start program, complete with extended hours, unique community collaborations and a cutting-edge goaldriven service delivery system. The program included resolutions from the City of San Diego and the State of California, as well as several dedications and presentations by friends and family of Barbara Fielding, and NHA Head Start staff and children. Head Start is a federally-funded child development program designed to help break the cycle of poverty by providing preschool children of low-income families with a comprehensive program to meet their emotional, social, health, nutritional and mental health needs. Over the past four decades, Head Start has touched the lives of more than 250,000 low-income preschool children and families at more than 100 locations in San Diego County. For more information on NHA’s Head Start program, visit or call 1-888-873-5145.
