Today, May 21, Georgeanna Lipe will celebrate her 100th birthday. If you do not know her, you might conjure up the image of a wizened old lady, maybe bedridden, hunched over, perhaps partially deaf or going blind. This is not the case with Georgeanna Lipe! Beyond her 96th year, she was as spry as any 40-year-old. Her time was too occupied to consider the aging process. It just stopped for her. Her energy was tapped into her creativity. And this, for Georgeanna, was a relatively new venture. In the late 1920s and early ’30s, Anna White decided to attend Vanderbilt Medical School. Her goal was to become a medical illustrator. Few women attended Georgeanna Lipe, seen here with Luke medical school in those days. In the quarter horse at her son’s home in fact, one summer she attended an Virginia, will celebrate her 100th birthSEE LIPE, Page 3

anatomy class and was the only female student. Despite the teasing, she succeeded, passing the course and eventually realizing her objective. The post-Depression years were hard. Anna had married a young doctor from Vanderbilt who was serving his residency in Rochester, N.Y. He was making $25 a month, so his young bride stayed home with her parents in Nashville. This lasted only one year. Feisty Anna Lipe was not going to be away from her husband one more year. She went up to Rochester from Nashville to be with her husband. They lived in one small room on the third floor of a house not far from the hospital and had to climb upstairs to use a bathroom, which they shared with another young couple. Using her initiative and skill, the young bride earned the necessary extra income by creating cards, invitations and announcements using calligraphy and drawings for churches and organizations in Rochester. Finally, Dr. Lipe began his practice. In response to an ad in the Journal of the American Medical Association, the Lipes drove blindly, having no idea exactly where they were going, across the United States in 1936 (no superhighways, no regular pit stops or gas stations) to a place called La Jolla. En route, Anna renamed herself and became Georgeanna after her father George and her mother Anna.



Georgeanna Lipe with her children, daughters Susanna (Aalbers) and Terry (Jordan) and son Steele Lipe.

After raising two of her three children, Georgeanna began experimenting with oil painting, but it was watercolors that captured her fancy. She has become a living legend in La Jolla with her paintings being used for art festival posters, purchased for businesses, and receiving commissions faster than she can fill them. In her mid-80s, she also opened The Artists Gallery on Girard Avenue. Over the years, Georgeanna traveled all over the world, always with her paints at her side. One year her art group went to Italy. After climbing the hills of Tuscany for 10 days, she returned to the U.S. by air only to be met in New York with a wheelchair. Sure, she accepted it, laughing all the way through customs, beating her friends and delighting in the joke. If

only the airline stewards knew where she had been and what she had done! But then, 90year-olds aren’t supposed to climb mountains, are they? Now she has reached the pinnacle: her 100th year.

In an effort to create about 80 new parking spaces throughout La Jolla’s merchant district, La Jolla Community Planning Association (LJCPA) trustees approved a motion May 7 to send a “Rainbow Curbs” parking plan to city officials for approval. Group members met with city parking officials May 13, gaining approval for specific alterations. Responding to local concerns regarding parking problems, Ed Ward, Orin Gabsch and Bob Collins created the plan, said LJCPA President Joe LaCava. The trio scoured La Jolla’s village, targeting outdated yellow, green, white and red curbs in addition to unused commercial driveways and bus stops. LaCava said the group began surveying possible spaces with the community’s support months ago, passing the finished plan to community groups for approval last March. The group proposed to eliminate rarely used passenger and commercial loading zones and abandoned drive-through locations; alter times for commercial and passenger loading; reduce red curbs; and eliminate or alter myriad colored curbs such as the commercial loading in front of the former Hard Rock Café on Prospect Street. San Diego traffic engineers must approve the plan’s alterations, mainly changes to red curbs that could potentially create a safety

hazard, LaCava said. La Jolla Traffic & Transportation Board approved a slightly altered rainbow curb plan during the group’s monthly meeting April 23 before passing the project to LJCPA trustees for approval May 7. LaCava and Gabsch began walking through La Jolla’s merchant district with representatives from the City of San Diego Traffic Division, surveying areas affected by the rainbow curb plan, LaCava said. “The [City of San Diego] Streets Division are the [authority]...,” LaCava said. “We’re going out there and making our case.” LaCava said the group started the field certification process with city traffic engineers, identifying curbs inside the plan and then gaining the city’s approval. Although LaCava called the initial meeting with city representatives preliminary, the engineers agreed with many of the group’s decisions regarding altering curbs, he said. “The initial reaction from the city was that some of the red curbs they agreed with [removing to gain parking spaces] and some they said ‘no,’” LaCava said. “We’re not going to get 100 percent, but we’re going to get a majority.” LaCava and Gabsch continued to meet with city traffic engineers, he said. “A standard work order at the city takes about 60 days,” LaCava said. ■

week, La Jolla was seeded third behind Canyon Crest and Francis Parker. La Jolla met Parker at the Barnes Center in the semifinals in a hard-fought 10-8 loss. In the second round, La Jolla was down by four when Jonathan Lo came back to win a close tie-breaker to allow a rally point for the Vikings. Michael Rabinivich won his next round 60 and Jerry Lin did what he could do to keep his opponent on the court for as long as he could. Two very close singles matches were lost in tie-breakers in rounds one and two. The doubles teams came through for La Jolla as Daniel Lapidus and Sean Rodriguez went 3-for-3, while Niko Karnopp and Blake Cummins won 2-of-3. The match came down to the final doubles round, which was “on serve” at 4-5. “Erwin Hernandez and Harper Allen played their hearts out, and it could not have been much clos-

er,” Andrews noted. “I could not have asked them to play harder. I was emotionally drained for hours after the match.” Despite a strong effort, Hernandez and Allen fell 7-5 to end the day. For Andrews, the effort he saw out of his teams was something special. “I saw a whole team of 13 players all focused on one goal,” Andrews commented. “I couldn’t have been more proud, and I am sure all the parents that attended feel the same. I saw a team that was so far down after the second round that most other teams would have given up. I saw a team that lost with class.” In action this week, La Jolla is competing at Coronado in the Western League Individuals. All quarterfinalists will gain entry into the CIF Individual Tournament that starts next week at the Barnes Center. ■

Natalie Camarda was on her game recently, striking out 15 batters to help lead The Bishop’s School to a 6-3 win over Mountain Empire in scholastic girls softball action. With the win, Bishop’s moved its record to 12-7. Briana Martinez (two hits) had a home run, while Gabby Salerno and Yessica Palmer each had two hits. In other action, Bishop’s dropped a 1-0 decision to league foe Horizon. Bishop’s had the bases loaded in the top of the seventh inning following a Martinez ground-rule double but just couldn’t get that elusive timely hit. Camarda struck out 13 in a pitchers’ duel with Cassidy Coleman. “With only two seniors, we’re pleased with where we are at so far this season, having outscored our opponents 107 to 46,” Bishop’s head coach Jim Buechler commented. Elsewhere, La Jolla Country Day School headed into play last week with a record of 4-8-1 (1-2 Coastal League). Key players to date have included Brittney Dawson, Chemayne Shipley and Katie Woods. In other action, La Jolla High fell recently to Valley Center (12-8) and University City (16-0) and on May 16 to Serra (11-6). Finally, University City High heads into action this week at 136-2.

NEEDLES TO BASKETS: GRACE HURST LOCAL ARTISAN AT MAYFAIRE MARKET In the early 70’s, Grace began weaving baskets from pine needles with a friend. Together they poured through books, visited museums and experimented with stitches and shapes.“I like to try new angles with each basket,” said Grace. Other materials, raffia,Teneriffe needlework, and nuts, have been incorporated in to the designs, but pine needles remain the most important element. “The best needles come from the Southern Montezuma Pine gathered locally on Point Loma,” Grace added. “They hold up very well over time,” she said. Grace started teaching others early on. Recently, her groups have been weaving Appalachian type baskets using cane, reed, rattan and materials found in the neighborhood such as sheaths from the Queen Palms with their rich shiny color and leather like texture.“I never wanted to sell the baskets,” she said,“I gave them away.” But

all that changed in 2006 when Grace founded the Basket Weavers Guild who donated their work for charity through the All Souls’ Episcopal Church Home Tour/Christmas Arts Sale.“We now participate in the new All Souls’ MayFaire Market,” stated Grace, “and will be donating our sales to support the church’s work in Kenya, with the Peninsula Shepherd Center and refugees.” All Souls’ Episcopal Church is part of the Episcopal Diocese of San Diego, The Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion. Its mission is to be the hands, voice and body of Christ in service to his world. The church lives out its mission by addressing the needs of others in Kenya, Mexico, San Diego, and Point Loma. It addition, All Souls’ offers worship services on Monday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.

In a 10-5 loss to Torrey Pines, senior defender Lia Sagerman was all over the field with seven forced turnovers, six ground balls and a goal. Sophomore Dana Christensen had her best and most active game yet, with 11 strong saves.

La Jolla JV softball wins both games The La Jolla High junior varsity girls softball team recently won a pair of games at home for a perfect 2-0 week. La Jolla beat Kearny 14-12, with Blair Brice contributing a home run and a triple for a total of five RBIs.

Shyness is on the increase Cold case detectives crack 1995 UC murder in our hurried hyperculture BY ALYSSA RAMOS | VILLAGE NEWS

We live in a hyperculture: the Internet, e-mail, cell phones and texting are speeding up our interactions. It’s not only faster, it’s also more complex, leaving behind people like my mother, who, when asked to push numbers on the phone in order to continue the interaction, would just hang up. I admit that sometimes I do too. We tend to lose patience when our expectations are not met instantaneously, and we don’t always tolerate people slower than ourselves. Hyperculture is not only faster, it is also communication-intense and constant. Our society is getting louder and more colorful. Even old black and white movies get colorized. Boom-boxes with loud music, rap singing with rapid, incomprehensible words, fast dancing, fast scanning TV programs with the remote, scanning newspapers and generally always rushing give our days a feeling of hurrying to get to the next activity yet never feeling caught up. We live in an increasingly narrow circle of friends. We go from our cubicles at work to a commute to our gated communities. Our children come home from school wearing headphones,

while we do take-out or get frozen food. There are no more hours in the kitchen with the children helping with meal preparation and talking about their days. Neighbors don’t drop in requesting a cup of sugar; it’s just too easy to hop into a car and go to an all-night supermarket. What are the consequences of our hyperculture? Alienation! It’s easier to be rude online, easier to mistreat faceless and voiceless people — and the cost is less civility. Who pays the highest price? The people who are naturally shy. Shy people are both born and made. Dr. Philip Zimbardo, who has been studying shyness for the past 30 years, has found that shyness is on the increase. On the one hand, there seems to be a shyness gene characterized by excessive self-consciousness, low

Cold case homicide detectives recently reanalyzed fingerprints found 14 years earlier at a University City crime scene, helping police catch car thieves who allegedly murdered UC resident David F. Hessler. Hessler awoke around 2 a.m. Nov. 14, 1995 to strange noises originating from the street outside his home at 4440 Huggins St., police said. Hessler investigated, interrupting car thieves who shot him and then left him bleeding in his front yard, according to police. “The immediate investigation found that several expensive items

NEWSbrief Red-light photo camera activated in La Jolla City officials have launched three new red-light photo cameras to step up motorist and pedestrian safety, including cameras in the Midway area and La Jolla. The sensor-based cameras are now mounted on North Torrey Pines Road at Genesee Avenue in Torrey Pines and at Rosecrans Street at Nimitz Boulevard in the Roseville/Fleetridge neighborhood. They became active April


were missing from the victim’s vehicle, thus identifying the motive for the attack,” San Diego Police Lt. Terry McManus said in a press release. “Investigators pursued many leads throughout the next several months but were unable to identify and locate the suspects responsible for the murder.” Hessler’s case went cold, police said. But in February of 2008, detectives resubmitted fingerprints taken from the original scene. “Due to technical advances as well as a more ‘expansive’ database, a suspect was quickly identified,” McManus reported.

Cold case detectives and District Attorney investigators identified 34-year-old suspect Buzie Weimer, McManus reported. “Four additional suspects were identified as a result of the ongoing investigation. The person responsible for the actual shooting of Mr. Hessler was identified as Alvin M. Timbol, who was 19 years old at the time of the murder,” McManus reported. Police arrested Edul J. Azees, 34, and Khoi L. Bruster, 32, in connection with the murder. Police withheld the name of one suspect, who was a juvenile at the time of the incident. ■

30, according to police. A third new camera has been activated at Balboa Avenue and Kearny Villa Road in Kearny Mesa, bringing the total number of red-light photo cameras across the city to 15. According to Monica Muñoz with the San Diego Police Department, motorists caught on camera running a red light will have a 30-day grace period, during which a warning citation will be issued. Beginning May 30, however, offenders caught on camera can expect to receive a citation with color photos of the violation and expect to pay a minimum $436

penalty. According to Muñoz, the systems are mounted on poles with sensors in front of an intersection. Once a light turns red, the system is activated and will recognize a vehicle that trips the sensors and travels across the limit line into the intersection. She said the system snaps photos of the vehicle from the front and behind but is only designed to operate only after the signal has turned red.

Remembering the five Fleischbeins on Memorial Day BY FLORENCE LAMBERT

ike most residents of La Jolla, I’m not only grateful for but proud of our famous landmark atop Mount Soledad. The beautiful white cross with its surrounding memorial to those who served our country is truly one of La Jolla’s unique treasures. I was very young during World War II, and few memories of those years remain. Most of them are about my siblings who served in the military. After the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941, my oldest brother Gus, who was in his second year at San Diego State College, immediately joined the Army Air Force. He was stationed at Santa Ana before being sent to Kansas and Louisiana. After bombardier school he was assigned to a B-17 squadron outside of London. They flew many successful missions, but on the last one his plane was shot down over Holland, which at that time was occupied by Germany. A Dutch family hid him in a windmill and kept him safe for six weeks before he was captured. He spent two years as a prisoner of war in Stalag 7. Those two years left their mark and greatly affected the rest of his life. There was no such phrase as post-traumatic stress, and apparently counseling for these young, innocent heroes was not considered necessary.


Lt. August Fleischbein

Master Sgt. Fred Fleischbein

Ruben A. Fleischbein

Robert Fleischbein

Gus never spoke of those two years except once, when I picked a dandelion puff and blew the seeds to make a wish. He told me that while in prison he learned that dandelions were good to eat and that whenever possible the prisoners would reach through the fence, as far as they could, to pick the leaves and flowers. Fred, the brother closest in age to Gus, was full of life and had just graduated from Sweetwater High School, where he received honors in sports. At the early age of 17, Fred followed in his big brother’s footsteps and also enlisted in the Army Air Force. Trained as a tailgunner, he flew in a B-24 squadron based in Tunisia, North Africa. Sadly, one day a telegram arrived stating that Master Sgt. Fredrick Anton Fleischbein was

missing in action. His plane had been shot down on a raid over oil fields in Pulaski, Austria. There were no survivors. After a long, morbid year, Fred was officially declared killed in action. My mother had his body, or at least his dog tags, brought home in a coffin. He was buried with a military funeral at Holy Cross Cemetery. I can still remember the piercing gun salute and the folded flag being handed to my mother. Another young brother, Ruben, also graduated from Sweetwater High at 17. With the bravery and enthusiasm of youth, he too decided to enlist in the Army Air Force. While stationed in Colorado, he contracted acute rheumatic fever and was hospitalized for one year. Because the miracle drugs

were not available at that time, the hospitalized soldiers were treated with experimental drugs. When Ruben was sufficiently recovered, he was sent to San Antonio. The next family member to join the service was our sister Mary Kay. She joined the WACS, and because she had attended secretarial college, she was assigned to office positions. Most of her time was spent at Hickam Air Force Base in Hawaii. When she came home, I remember one night overhearing her telling our parents about some of the atrocities inflicted on American WACS that had been captured. To this day, I find it hard to forget the indescribable cruelty she related. It was not until the Korean War that our youngest brother Robert was old enough to join the Army.

He wanted to be a paratrooper and was sent to jump school at Fort Benning, Ga. After graduation he was stationed in Japan. When the Korean War ended he spent the remainder of his service time in Germany. I wanted to purchase a family plaque with their names and photos at the Mount Soledad Memorial Park but was told that I would have to purchase five separate plaques. The rules state that only individual plaques are allowed. Since I felt that these five family members, all natives of San Diego, deserve recognition for their military service, I decided to write this article about the five Fleischbeins who helped protect our country in time of war. — Florence Lambert of La Jolla is active in animal causes. ■


Memorial Day is for patriots BY DAVID K. REHBEIN

n some circles, patriotism has become a synonym for arrogant or jingoistic. Some people even use it as a political weapon: “Don’t question my patriotism,” they say. Yet this Memorial Day, and every other day, for that matter, we should remember that those who died for this country are the true patriots. Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes called Memorial Day “our most respected holiday” and urged that “we not ponder with sad thoughts the passing of our heroes but rather ponder their legacy — the life they made possible for us by their commitment and pain.” At its core, Memorial Day



has always commemorated the universal, all-encompassing understanding of “no greater love than this does any man have, that he lay down his life for his friends.” President Lincoln put their sacrifice into perspective at the battlefield in Gettysburg when he said, “The world will little note nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here.” After the terrorists struck us on 9/11, America was changed. Our all-volunteer force responded. People with comfortable jobs left their towns and deployed with their Reserve and Guard units. Some even joined the active-duty forces. The existing military responded in its typical heroic fashion, overthrowing a tyran-

And just as their predecessors in the two world wars, Korea, Vietnam, Beirut, Grenada and the Persian Gulf, the war on terrorism is being won by ordinary Americans making extraordinary sacrifices. One such man was Marine Cpl. Travis Braddack-Nail, of Portland, Ore. He played the drums, loved punk rock and drove his mother crazy with his tattoos. Although he hoped to attend college, he extended his stay in Iraq to help his platoon. “The platoon wasn’t surSEE PATRIOTS, Page 8

Hot music and hot food Even in these tough economic times, when most restaurants are competing for business, should the musicians/chefs group who prepared a feast for their avid supporters, the Symphony Stars, launch one, guaranteed — given the relish with which the food was received — they would be instantly successful. The menu, prepared in the stunning kitchen of Gordon and Annika Kovtun, included beef

loin, oven-roasted carrots, couscous and baby spinach salad, finished with fresh fruit skewers, all prepared under the leadership of master trumpeter John MacFerran Wilds. The other “chefs,” also musicians with the San Diego Symphony, conducted themselves with great professionalism. Were that not enough, after buffet service was complete and the “stars” were licking their lips, MacFerran Wilds, along with horn player Ben Jaber and trombonist Timothy Smith, removed their chef hats and put on their musician caps to treat the guests to a musical dessert. Not only that, extra added attraction Marvin Hamlisch turned up to enchant the crowd. Could anything have been sweeter? Just as sweet was the new fortissimo challenge, whereby any donation made to the San Diego Symphony by June 30 will be doubled and the donor will enjoy a free concert at the Embarcadero.

self-esteem and anticipation of rejection, but shyness is also induced by our culture and now especially by our hyperculture. When we lose patience with slowness, the shy who take time to warm up lose out. When we

notice only the loudest, the laidback get short shrift. As we become less polite and more impatient, the shy are the first to be excluded and even badly treated. As our lives increase in complexity, our level of anxiety also rises, and we see a polarization of behavior, with both an increase in aggression and a loss

NEWS of manners or withdrawal. Shy people are often insecure and worry about how they look, what to say and how to say it to whom and when. They need more time to warm up, to adjust to new or stressful situations. The number one problem for the shy or insecure person is starting a relationship. At a social gathering, they tend to compare

themselves to the socially most active person instead of looking for people like themselves. They wait to be approached and believe that everything they say has to be perfect, witty or profound. They believe others are not only watching them but also judging them. The first strategy is to remember that “you don’t have to be interesting; you have to be interested.” In other words, instead of wondering what to say, ask questions: “How do you know the host/hostess?” “Did you read

the paper today about…?” The best strategy of all is to focus on the other person as opposed to focusing on oneself. Instead of being painfully aware of one’s own emotional state, try to identify what others may be feeling. And, of course, practice. Get yourself into situations where you can start conversations. Become a volunteer, join other shy people in self-help groups. And remember, you are sane; it is our hyperculture that is insane. ■

Turquoise St. turns green with pot shop BY SEBASTIAN RUIZ | VILLAGE NEWS

A medical marijuana facility called the Pacific Beach Collective opened at 929A Turquoise St. on Monday, May 11 to the dismay of several neighboring business owners and community members who say the facility will attract crime and illegal drug use to the neighborhood. While residents and businesses in north Pacific Beach protest the dispensary, they may have to grin and bear it because marijuana used for medicinal purposes is legal under state law. Although federal law prohibits the sale of medical marijuana, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear a California case to clarify the discrepancy.

Some neighbors are livid about the new shop. “I don’t see any positive aspects to it,” said Jack Story, a 20-year resident. “It’s probably not good for business.” Story said many older folks in north Pacific Beach fear the store will attract crime and make people afraid to patronize nearby businesses. With Pacific Beach Elementary within walking distance, at least one parent fears the store might attract dangerous drug addicts to the area. “There’s nothing wrong or illegal, and they’re certainly necessary, but as someone who walks around with her children — for SEE POT SHOP, Page 10

Dame Edna proclaims laughter is best medicine BY JAMES COLT HARRISON | VILLAGE NEWS

Dame Edna is one of those instantly recognizable stars who causes great guffaws. Not because she looks funny — maybe a little bizarre — but because she is genuinely funny. We caught up with the estimable Dame by phone recently at her home in Switzerland. James Colt Harrison: There seems to be a lack of glamour in show business today. Dame Edna: I’ll tell you this, Jimmy. I have done a lot of these talk shows — Jay Leno, in particular — and I’m sitting there wearing the most beautiful frock. And on comes some fellow who is a pop star or movie star wearing

dirty jeans and a sort of stubble on his chin looking a fright. And they slouch and slump on the couch. It’s a form of arrogance. They were dragged up with no manners and no taste, and they’re full of their own importance and say, “Why should I dress up for this? I’m making plenty of money.”Ω I would consider it a compliment to me if your beautiful readers went to as much trouble as I do to dress up.

Indianapolis 500 revs its engines BY JOHNNY MCDONALD | VILLAGE NEWS

The 2010 Camaro may be the Indianapolis 500 pace car this month but the trips beyond may not be as swift. Automobile magazine reveals that the financial squeeze has stalled production plans at General Motors. Just as GM decided to roll the highly anticipated Camaro off its assembly lines, the news was disappointing concerning the Z28 and convertible variants. The Z28 apparently has become a victim of company cost cutting, and GM reports it can’t afford an estimated $50 million to bring the high-performance variant to market. However, Chevy executives don’t want to give up the Z28

completely. It is the variant they hope will dethrone Ford in the muscle car wars. Camaro’s vehicle line executive Gene Stefanyshyn says it will take some creative engineering. Meanwhile, the convertible Camaro was set to start production in a year until the German supplier for the roof went under. Stefanyshyn warned that even if a supplier can be found, it will take some time to get the supplier up to speed. So Chevy will miss the vital spring-summer window. As long as we’re on the subject of Indy, the snake-bit Andretti family comes to mind when it places its 500 hopes again on grandson Marco. Aside from grandfather Mario’s

1969 victory, the sad story has continued for 38 years. Mario has led 556 laps and has a pair of seconds to show for them. He actually held the victory trophy for four months in 1981, then lost it. He had finished second to Bobby Unser. But the next day Unser was penalized one lap for passing cars under a caution flag and Andretti was declared the winner. Unser and car owner Roger Penske appealed the race stewards’ decision and the United States Auto Club overturned the penalty four months later.

Festa torch passed to younger generation BY PATRICIA M. WALSH | VILLAGE NEWS

Point Loma youth carry on the Portuguese celebration of the Feast of the Holy Spirit, San Diego’s oldest ethnic tradition, now in its 99th year. The queen and royalty from the fifth week of the Festa’s crowning are (from left) Lady Daniella Camacho, Junior King Matteo Camacho-Bier, Queen Marlaena Camacho and PHOTO BY PATRICIA M. WALSH Lady Ashley Noelle Barandiaran.

Poised on the cusp of a centennial celebration, Point Loma’s annual Festa do Espirito Santo — Feast of the Holy Spirit — has weathered the test of time that has left mostly memories in a community built on faith, family and labor at sea. Long gone is the fleet of tuna boats that once filled the harbor and the Portuguese fishermen who emigrated here from the Azores to settle and build a community now inhabited by third-, fourth- and fifth-generation families. Mass spoken in Portuguese at Point Loma’s St. Agnes Roman Catholic Church

will soon be a thing of the past when The Rev. Joseph Mel Collier retires in June. As much as time as eroded the hallmarks of their culture, it has also strengthened the pride and spirit of a younger generation of Portuguese families who hold tight to the traditions of their parents and grandparents and are passing it on to their American-born children. The Festa, which began in San Diego in 1910, is a seven-week celebration between Easter and Pentecost Sunday to honor Queen Isabel, the Portuguese royal who served the poor and fed the hungry

from her own table. Each Sunday, a weekly queen, typically attired in gown and an exquisite handmade cape and attended by equally splendid royalty, is crowned at St. Agnes in honor of Isabel and the Holy Spirit. On the final Sunday, a colorful parade of costume and culture winds its way through the streets of Point Loma from the United Portuguese S.E.S. hall on Shelter Island to St. Agnes Church. There, the Festa Queen, whose parents are the event’s sponsor for the year, is crowned during Mass. Afterward, a feast of “sopas,” a traSEE FESTA, Page 13




me, that’s not the kind of business we want in our community,” said Dawna Deatrick, president of Friends of Pacific Beach Elementary School, a parent-teacher organization. “It’s a necessary evil but we just don’t want it in our backyard.” Lenny Olsen, manager of Pacific Beach Gardens at 910 Turquoise St., said there was no announcement about the facility. There is no public noticing requirement for starting a dispensary, according to Pacific Beach Collective store managers. Olsen said he wants one. “If I want to have an establishment to sell alcohol, I have to notify the community, but they can open up a medical marijuana store?” Olsen said. “How come they don’t have to notify [the public]?” Olsen added that he doesn’t want his 10-month-old son exposed to a neighborhood culture that would “normalize” marijuana drug use. While many in the neighborhood take issue with the store, the facility is protected under California law as a result of the voter-approved Proposition 215. The Compassionate Use Act of 1996 legalized marijuana for seriously ill persons as long as they have a doctor’s recommendation, according to San Diego County Deputy District Attorney Steve Walter. In 2004, the Medical Marijuana Program Act, Senate Bill 420, established a voluntary patient identification and registration system. While the intent of the regulations is to help patients in serious


pain, many recreational drug users circumvent the law by faking a need for it. “Most people that voted for [Prop 215] were thinking of people who were gravely ill and marijuana was something to ease their pain… it’s unfortunate that there’s people that have taken it to the extreme and are ruining it for whom the law it was intended for,” Walter said. Robert, 36, showed up at Pacific Beach Collective for different reasons on the store’s opening day. A Pacific Beach resident, Robert asked that his last name not be published. The mixed martial arts instructor said a series of knee operations and shoulder and other training injuries had left him in a lot of pain. Robert said doctors prescribed him pharmaceutical painkillers that had addictive side effects and made him ill. Robert registered with the Pacific Beach Collective and can now legally acquire the medicine he needs. “Hopefully people can understand that it’s the lesser of two evils when it’s necessary,” Robert said. Sean Grady, the dispensary’s treasurer, said he wants to dispel rumors that the store is a methadone dispensary clinic or needle exchange program. He added that a plainclothes, unarmed security guard will monitor activity inside, along with a video camera security system. “Hopefully, the community will see how we actually handle things and embrace us,” Grady said. While Grady hopes for community support, the County of San Diego has historically sided with the federal law on the issue. San Diego and Merced counties filed a civil court case in February

of 2006 questioning the legality of dispensaries under federal law. Later that year, federal and county law officials cooperated to shut down approximately eight beacharea dispensaries and several others throughout the county, according to published reports. The case was appealed and challenged all the way up to the U.S. Supreme Court, with judges siding with the California law up to this point, according to Deborah McCarthy, chief deputy counsel for the County of San Diego. Meanwhile, a movement to legalize and tax the federally controlled substance is under way. Assembly member Tom Ammiano (D- San Francisco) introduced Assembly Bill 390 in February to regulate and tax the plant the same way the state regulates beer and liquor. The legislation would generate up to $1.3 billion in revenue, according to Ammiano’s website. ■

La Jolla baseball splits Athletes put spring into their seasons contests with Madison, UC CAM PUS COR N E R


A number of high school grads with ties to the area are doing well on the collegiate sports scene this spring. Collette Abbott (La Jolla High), a junior second baseman for the Princeton University softball team, was the Ivy League Player of the Week for the week of April 28. In a recent series against Cornell, Abbott hit .714 (10-for-14) with multiple hits in each game, including a three-for-four game in the opener and a three-for-three game the next day. The outburst of offense included her third and fourth home runs of the season along with a double, all for a slugging percentage of 1.214. Adding in a hit-by-pitch, her on-base percentage was .733. The final weekend surge was a late-season trend for Abbott, who led Princeton in batting average in Ivy League games at .438. She raised her batting average from .143 after a March 28 doubleheader against Yale to .352 after the recent final twinbill against Cornell, a 209-point jump in less than a month. Matt Jones (La Jolla High) was a freshman on the Harvard University men’s volleyball team this season. Harvard ended a successful campaign recently with a loss to George Mason in the first round of the EIVA playoffs to finish at 11-8 overall, 6-2 in EIVA Hay play. Jones, who helped lead Harvard into the playoffs for the first time since the 2005 season, finished

In addition, Jones earned Hay Division Player of the Week honors eight games into the campaign following his efforts with a matchhigh 15 kills in a losing effort to Princeton. Amanda Weinbrecht (University City High) recently completed a stellar career in women’s swimming at UNLV. Weinbrecht swam one event on the final day of action at the 2009 NCAA Women’s Swimming and Diving Championships, helping lead the Rebels to 37th place in the team standings.

Zinser, a redshirt senior, has one win and one save for the Wolfpack on the mound. North Carolina State is 24-28 overall and 10-17 in Atlantic Coast Conference play. ■

The La Jolla High varsity baseball team (14-10, 3-7) split a pair of Western League games versus Madison last week. Patrick Christensen out-dueled Madison’s Jeff Bradford in a pitcher’s battle that ended with a Kyle Zimmer walk-off home run in the bottom of the eighth inning, as La Jolla won 2-1. Christensen threw all eight innings, allowing only one run and striking out five. Zimmer was 2-for-3, including the winning home run. Zac Zlatic had two hits and Yoshi Rothman drove in the other run for the Vikings. La Jolla’s defense sagged in the second game of the week as four Viking errors led to five unearned runs and a 7-4 loss to Madison. Dustin Ouellette was the hardluck loser for La Jolla. Ouellette, Zimmer and Aaron Steigerwalt all had two hits. “This week was very indicative of our entire season,” La Jolla High head coach Gary Frank said. “When we play good defense, we are one of the better teams around. However, when we lose our defensive focus and make errors, we usually lose the game. We just have to find a way to prepare ourselves to play good defense every time out.” La Jolla High split a pair of Western League games recently with University City (UC) High.

Bradley Zimmer had a pinchhit, RBI single to put the Vikings up for good in the sixth, while Robbie Beathard singled to drive in Ouellette in the seventh to add an insurance run. In the second game of the week, University City jumped out to an 80 lead in the first two innings and then held off a La Jolla comeback to win 8-5. UC benefited from two walks and two errors in the top of the second inning, which led to three unearned runs, proving to be the difference in the game. Greg Cohen and David Washington led UC with a pair of RBIs. Jonas Noack picked up the victory, while Guillermo Adame was credited with the save. Ouellette pitched six innings of scoreless relief and went 3-for-4 with a double at the plate for La Jolla. ■

SherwinWilliams also has simplified color coordination by listing designerrecommended color combinations on the back of each paint chip. Jackie Jordan, director of color marketing at Sherwin-Williams, suggests trying colors on multiple walls, as lighting and location can significantly affect color appearance.

Longtime church member Karen Downs at the May 1 All Hallows tea.


The event included a historical photo exhibit of the parish, a jewelry sale, an art display by Madonna Arts, as well as honorary chairwomen for the event in Mary Mulvihill and Ruth Mulvaney. “The tea itself, which began at 3 p.m., and ran till 5 p.m., consisted of a traditional Tea with light fare,” Stanley said. “Women of all ages in San Diego [participated], and particularly La Jolla, and those who attend regularly attend May crowning services.” This is year 50 for the church’s parish and members have decided to make the Afternoon Tea an annual event. It also raises money and the proceeds go to benefit the restoration of the Blessed Mother’s shrine as well as the Diocesan Homeless Women’s Services. “The program has three goals in order to celebrate May Crowning, which is a traditional Roman Catholic celebration that occurs annually in May, around Mother’s Day,” Stanley said. “At the All Hallows Church, the statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary crowned to signify her as Queen of Heaven and Mother of God, and it also serves to raise funds for those in need.” The church, which will be celebrating all year as this is its golden jubilee year, hosts the event in order to celebrate the history of All Hallow’s Parish, as well as Wisteria Cottage being the new home of the La Jolla Historical Society.

ditional Portuguese plate of food, is served amid festivities at the hall that are open to the public and carry on until 10:30 p.m. This year’s parade and Festa will be held Sunday, May 31. On a recent Friday afternoon, a group of families gathered at St. Agnes to practice for a weekly crowning. Patty Camacho is there with two of her four daughters: Marlaena, a weekly queen, and Daniella, a lady in Marlaena’s court; and her nephew Matteo Camacho-Brier, who will be Marlaena’s junior king. Teri Simas is there with her daughters Nazare and Lizzy. Evelyn Feliciano is there with her daughter Karinna, who was crowned queen the previous week in memory of Evelyn’s husband Michael, who died in 2003 at age 40 of brain cancer. Evelyn met her husband at the Festa in 1984 and in 1985 she was Festa queen when her parents, Cristiano and Evelina DaRosa, sponsored the Festa. Feliciano, 42, has been in the Festa since the age of 3 and reminisces about her father, an immigrant who came to San Diego in 1954 with $50 in his pocket.

“It’s up to us parents to instill the value of tradition and heritage of San Diego’s oldest ethnic tradition in our children,” Feliciano said. Ask their teenage daughters what the celebration means to them and you get a variety of answers from “It’s fun” to “You get to be queen.” Nazare Simas, a weekly queen this year, said, “I want to honor my culture and show others what it’s about for St. Isabel.” Being a weekly queen is a commitment that typically begins a year before the crowning. For Marlaena Camacho’s crowning, it meant her grandmother, Stella Miller, started last year sewing the elaborate jeweled cape Marlaena wore for her coronation. It also comes with the honor of hosting the queen’s crown in your home for a week. The weekly queen’s family sets up an altar for the crown, laden with flowers and statues, and each night gathers with friends to say the rosary and pray to the Holy Spirit. “When you’re a kid, it seems so trying,” Patty Camacho said. “When you have kids of your own you appreciate it more. If you start them with your community and family traditions you always have something to remember.”



The Camacho family is representative of hundreds of Portuguese families interconnected in Point Loma — some full Portuguese, some not. Patty Camacho, 43, is the daughter of Herbert and Stella Miller. Stella (nee Correia) came to San Diego with her family in the early 1950s from Pico, Azores. In 1971, Patty’s sister Michelle was Festa Queen when their aunt and uncle, Tony and Mary Alice Oliveira, sponsored the Festa. Patty is married to Victor Camacho, who came to San Diego from Portugal at the age of 12 with his parents Ernie and Bina Camacho. Bina is the choir director at St. Agnes, and sponsored Marlaena’s coronation. Victor and Patty’s four daughters are all involved in the Portuguese community: Janessa, 21, is on committees at the Por-

tuguese Hall and for the Festa. Samantha, 19, is a United Portuguese S.E.S. youth group advisor. Both Janessa and Samantha teach Catechism at St. Agnes and younger sisters Marlaena and Daniella are assistants. Scott Bier, 43, Matteo’s dad, who is one-quarter Portuguese, calls himself a “mutt” but adds proudly that he was raised Portuguese. When he was younger, Scott hung the flags that go up on the streets around St. Agnes weeks before the parade. He and his wife Andrea, who is Victor Camacho’s sister, are helping organize the volunteers this year. “It’s the greatest community,” Bier said. “As it ages, we need to really keep the youth involved.” For more information about the Festa, call (619) 223-5880. ■

I’ve got, except sleeveless.”


JCH: Do you have a large staff? Dame Edna: You know, I don’t have a large entourage. I travel with my gynecologist.

you can show me the beach. Can you give me any dirt or gossip about La Jollans?


JCH: What is your reaction to what people wear on planes? Dame Edna: Ooh! You know what I absolutely can’t stand are those pants that stop midcalf for men. It’s those horrible cargo shorts. Then they wear great big baggy T-shirts and they wear little caps pointing backwards. One time at the Beverly Hills Hotel pool I fell in love with seersucker jackets. I met the inventors, Mr. Seer and Mr. Sucker. They were a couple.

JCH: What have you heard about La Jolla? Dame Edna: I was talking to Steven Spielberg, and he told me that during the Jurassic period Australia was connected to La Jolla. In some caves outside Sydney, they have found some fossilized women just like you might find shopping on Girard Street in La Jolla.

UCSD dedicated the new Conrad Prebys Music Center May 8 and 9.

UCSD dedicates new music center BY CHARLENE BALDRIDGE | VILLAGE NEWS

On May 8 and 9, the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) dedicated the staggeringly beautiful and realistically forward-looking $53 million Conrad Prebys Music Center. Concerts designed to demonstrate the 400-seat Performance Hall (the work of acoustician Cyril M. Harris, who also designed the acoustically excellent auditorium at the Neurosciences Institute) was held the evening of May 8. On May 9, the public was welcomed for tours and free recitals, and the May 8 concert was repeated in the evening. To hear Department of Music Chair Rand Steiger tell of the process of bringing the department’s

long-held dreams to fruition, as he did during a tour prior to the dedication ceremony, is to know how deeply invested he is in the facility. The music department was founded more than 40 years ago, and has never had facilities sufficient to its burgeoning needs. It took 20 years of ardent personal advocacy as well as the support of many to bring department hopes to reality. When finally approved, state funds proved inadequate due to the inflation of construction costs, and UCSD officials turned to philanthropists for support. In 2007 Prebys, a successful real estate builder, stepped forward with $6 million. Former UC Regent John SEE CENTER, Page 15

JCH: I can’t begin to list all the awards you have won. Even the Queen gave you something! Dame Edna: I stay with her when I’m in London. She’s adorable, and she has a lovely sense of humor, James. JCH: What is your ethnic mix? Dame Edna: I only recently found out I’m half an Aborigine. One day I bought a boomerang at an airport. I threw it. It never came back. If I had been an Aboriginal, it would have come back. So, I’m only half Aborigine because I’ve never seen it again.


JCH: What is the essence of your Dame Edna brings her stage show to show? the Civic Theater June 2-7. Dame Edna: I taught many of them. I have a little acting school in Melbourne called Dame Edna’s Academy of Drama, or DEAD for short. Mr. and Mrs. Newton-John knocked on my kitchen door and asked if I would give their little Olivia some singing lessons. Mr. and Mrs. Gibson brought me their stunted little son Mel for drama lessons. He hasn’t grown beyond the age of 15. Then from there it was Hugh Jackman, Cate Blanchett and Russell Crowe. He was very difficult and bad-mannered. He has not changed. I try to instill refinement into my pupils. I taught Nicole Kidman everything she knows.

JCH: What do you have that appeals to American audiences? Dame Edna: They are relieved I’m not British. That means I’m not snobbish. I’m more rough-hewn like American culture. I speak the JCH: Have you met our new truth and I do not believe in politiPresident Obama? cal correctness. Dame Edna: No. I have only communicated with JCH: Americans love Australians really and have taken many of the stars Michelle. I’m helping her with her wardrobe. She wants everything to their bosoms.

Dame Edna: I bring the glamour, the glitter and mostly the laughter that is so needed now. I found an audience in your country about 10 years ago by accident. I’d done a show in London, and it was not what I had hoped for. It was a bit ambitious, if you like. I said I’d reached a watershed and I didn’t even know what a watershed was! I called up my friend Joan Rivers. Is she still alive? I think she’s alive — well, anyway, I asked what I should do next, and she said, “Go to San Francisco! Book yourself for two weeks and they will love you.” I stayed for four months, went to Broadway and won a Tony Award! And I thank Joan Rivers on the pages of your La Jolla Village News. “Dame Edna Live: My First Last Tour” plays at the Civic Theatre June 2 through 7.

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT 15 War is hell: Theatre, Inc. takes on Euripides THURSDAY · MAY 21, 2009



Moores contributed $1 million, encouraging others to give substantial gifts as well. A year later Prebys later gave an additional $3 million to provide funds for an endowment for maintenance of the center’s state-of-the-art accouterments and to fund graduate fellowships. The 47,000-square-foot Conrad Prebys Music Center is built of cast-in-place concrete. Facilities also include a small theater with electronic virtual acoustics (dial up your desired liveliness), a 150seat lecture/recital hall, and rehearsal rooms for chamber, choral, orchestral and percussion music. In addition to numerous student practice rooms, there is also a state-of-the-art recording studio with two performer-performance group spaces. Stage and recording studio floors and walls frequently utilize bamboo wood for acoustic purposes. The arts centerpiece and a bridge to the extended music community, Harris’ astonishing and asymmetrical Conrad Prebys Concert Hall is not only beautiful, with non-parallel bamboo wood and concrete ceiling and wall facets, but provides a nearly indescribable, almost discomfiting, listening environment, in which one realizes that heretofore one has never heard music so fully. The complete range of the audible is given full voice. Plans are in place for a chamber music series as well as other entertainment opportunities including jazz, classical, new, and experimental and computer music. To design a music center befit-

ting its innovative programs, UCSD Department of Music (founded in 1966) engaged Seattle’s LMN Architects and acoustician Harris, who have collaborated in designing concert halls for more than 20 years. Among their projects is Benaroya Hall. Dean of Arts and Humanities Seth Lerer said, “Harris, long a leader on the edge of sound, melds science and design. It is the soundtrack for our times and music is our own embassy of art.” “This is a very sweet day in the 42nd year of our existence,” Steiger said. “We now have a concert hall that gives us the tools for invention.” Prebys addressed his personal history, which included times of privation, then said deprecatingly of his success, “I always thought of myself as the luckiest guy in the world. Today, I’m one of the happiest.” To learn more go to ■

The ancient Greeks, UCSD classics Prof. Marianne McDonald and The Theatre, Inc. would remind one and all that war is hell, and they do, with their current production of Euripides’ “The Phoenician Woman,” continuing through May 31. The work opens The Theatre’s second season downtown. Artistic director Douglas Lay sets McDonald’s world-premiere translation in a Middle Eastern country where warring factions — led by brothers Polynices and Eteocles — wear headgear made familiar over decades of conflict in newspapers and TV reports; in this case, however, the headlines were written 2,500 years ago. Bending the usual “facts” to suit the drama — nothing new about that, either — Euripides begins his version many years after Oedipus unwittingly fulfilled the Oracle at Delphi’s prophecy by killing his father and wedding his own mother, Jocasta. Oedipus and mom had four children — the aforementioned boys, now men, and two girls, Antigone and her sister, Ismene, who doesn’t appear in Euripides’ play. When Oedipus discovered his error, he was so distraught he poked his own eyes out. Hidden away from the citizens in hopes Thebans will forget the horrible, fulfilled prophecy, Oedipus still lives in Thebes, which his son Eteocles rules. Oedipus abdicated in favor of his sons, and the original agreement was that Eteocles and Polynices would trade off the rule each year, but Eteocles decided

after one year that he liked being king and refused to leave. The enraged Polynices, much to Jocasta’s consternation, has raised an army in Argos and besieges Thebes. Eteocles selects seven commanders, one for each of Thebes’ gates. Ultimately, the brothers decide on hand-to-hand combat, just the two of them. The Chorus in “The Phoenician Women,” through May 31 If all this rings a at The Theatre, Inc.
