La Jollans set to relay for a cause

By KENDRA HARTMANN

A wave in Windansea SHOOTING THE TUBE Photographer Jim Grant crawled inside this drainage pipe at Windansea Beach to get this unique shot of the pipe’s interior, painted to look like the inside of a wave or “barrel.” In the background is the iconic island-themed shade shack and a surfer shredding it up on the waves. La Jolla Today will have all things surf covered with the addition of new columnist and local surf legend Bird Huffman. See his first column on Page 15

For 24 hours starting on June 29, a few hundred people will gather in La Jolla and walk in circles. They’ll celebrate, commiserate, remember and fight for a cause that has touched each of them or someone they know. The La Jolla Relay for Life, this year organized by Jamie Meronoff and held at La Jolla High School, will begin at 9 a.m. with an opening ceremony celebrating those who have battled cancer. The survivor’s lap around the track will take place at 9:30 a.m., followed by continuous laps by family, friends and other supporters. “It’s really a community-based

event with people who have been affected by cancer, whether they had it or have known someone who has, or just anyone,” Meronoff said. “The idea is to have at least one person on the track for all 24 hours to show that cancer doesn’t sleep, so neither can our efforts to fight it.” The event, Meronoff said, is based on having fun — with teams setting up picnics and campsites — while honoring and remembering those who have battled cancer. The most somber part

Amid questions of legality, some marijuana dispensaries setting up shop Medical marijuana dispensaries, including a handful along the beachfront, are beginning to pop up, apparently taking advantage of continuing legal uncertainties over the hot-button political issue. “At least three have opened in Pacific Beach, and it’s not just there but all over San Diego,” said Tony Franco, broker at Income Property Investors, Inc. covering Point Loma to La Jolla. A commercial Realtor for a decade along the waterfront, Franco has noticed a distinct uptick in demand for dispensary locations

just recently after a long lull. “In 2009 there were several places for rent for marijuana dispensaries through commercial real-estate leasing,” he said. “That all died down in 2011-12.” What killed dispensaries then is what Franco refers to as the “threeheaded monster” — the IRS, political attacks on their legality and a law enforcement crackdown by San Diego U.S. Attorney Laura Duffy. “Dispensaries were attacked from different angles, such as law enforcement seizing landlord’s

property,” Franco said, adding that now, with a new, more favorable mayoral administration, the political climate has changed. “[Mayor Bob] Filner has voiced a pro-[medical marijuana] opinion, which has led dispensaries to be brave again and start opening up retail shops with landlords that are liberal-minded enough to permit them,” Franco said. “Now in 2013, my phone is ringing again with inquiries from operators that want

Local continues to make waves in the female boxing world Local female boxer Danyelle Wolf — whose meteoric rise in the boxing world was featured in the La Jolla Village News on May 12, 2011 — gave us an update on her recent accomplishments and her ongoing goal to make it to the 2016 Olympics in Brazil. When we last spoke, Wolf had only been seriously boxing for a couple years but was gaining a reputation on the female boxing circuit as a major contender. Her reputation, however, worked against her as other boxers refused to fight her, especially after they would see her 6-foot frame and strong physique.

At the time, she had only been able to schedule four fights — all of which she had won. Things have turned around, however, Wolf said. She recently returned from Venezuela, where she won the welterweight division at the Continental Championships, which featured top female athletes from North, Central and South America. Before that, she won her division at the USA Boxing National Championships and was invited to join Team USA. She has been visiting training camps, including at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs and has been meet-

Officer David Stafford said two men entered Rigoberto’s Taco Shop at 6990 La Jolla Blvd. near Westbourne Street about 10:50 p.m. Saturday night. One man pointed a handgun at the clerk and demanded money. The two men then fled on foot. No one was injured.

Writer naming suspect in La Jolla assault revealed By NEAL PUTNAM A judge on June 12 ordered a man to stand trial on three robberies and a burglary in La Jolla and Pacific Beach in which the man’s ex-girlfriend wrote a letter about the crimes to the sheriff ’s department. A trial date was set for Oct. 30 for David Allen Grub, 43, after San Diego Superior Court Judge Kenneth So heard witnesses at a preliminary hearing. Grub pleaded not guilty and remains in jail on $300,000 bail. A mysterious letter was found Feb. 21 at the sheriff ’s station in Alpine that named Grub as responsible, but initially no one knew who wrote the letter. Grub lived in Alpine at the time, and a search of his residence and car turned up stolen property from several cases. Sheriff ’s Det. Karen Stone testi-

fied the letter writer was Grub’s ex-girlfriend. “She felt what he was doing was wrong,” said Stone. “She started to cry. She said she still loved him,” said Stone regarding her interview with the ex-girlfriend. Grub is accused of accosting a real-estate agent in La Jolla on Aug. 1 at 6:15 p.m. after the agent had just finished showing the house to a prospective buyer. Witnesses said a man with a rifle showed up at the front door and demanded jewelry and money. He grabbed fur coats and jewelry and took the agent’s cell phone. The robber fired shots at the homeowner’s feet as he was leaving. He dropped the fur coats and fled in a black two-door vehicle. Grub is accused of being one of

two armed robbers on Dec. 20 in Rancho Santa Fe. The robbers handcuffed the maid to the front door and demanded jewelry, diamonds and cash. The home was ransacked of $250,000 in jewelry, gold and other items, according to court records. The first burglary occurred on May 24, 2012, on Loring Street in Pacific Beach at 10 a.m. when the resident returned home and saw a man carrying a drawer from his dresser. The suspect fled in a black car and the victim discovered a large amount of jewelry was stolen. Police Det. John Smith testified a jewelry box that belonged to the Pacific Beach victim was found in Grub’s car. Smith said there was other stolen property found, including a suitcase, but police have not determined its owner.

Fireworks display in need of donations

Don Balch

Donations are sorely needed for the annual La Jolla Cove Fourth of July Cove fireworks display. “The total cost is about $30,000 and at this point we’re still about $8,000 shy,” said Deborah Marengo, spokeswoman for La Jolla Community Fireworks Foundation (LJCFF). Donations can be made at www.lajollafireworks.org. Costs to host the fireworks display increased $500 for permit fees, said Marengo, who added the event is a big economic stimulus to La Jolla’s downtown Village, kicking off the summer tourist season.

News La Jolla’s Navy namesake changes command Smiles lit faces and handshakes were exchanged at a time-honored change of command ceremony at the submarine piers for the Los Angeles Class submarine USS La Jolla (SSN 701) at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam on June 6. Cmdr. Jeff Bernard, commanding officer of La Jolla, was relieved by Cmdr. Kevin Roach. The ceremony’s guest speaker, Commander Submarine Squadron 1 Capt. James Childs, praised Bernard for his exceptional performance while in command of the La Jolla. “Congratulations on a great tour and in meeting every mission and ensuring your ship was ready to take the fight to the enemy every day,” said Childs. Bernard said he is proud of having had the opportunity to be in command of La Jolla and working with a fantastic team of Sailors. “To the sailors of La Jolla, I say thank you very much for your hard work and dedication on a day-to-day basis. Your ability to persevere through each and every unexpected change of plans or tasking is phenomenal and can never really be appreciated by those who have never been to sea,” said Bernard.

Medal for his performance as the commanding officer of La Jolla from February 2010 to June 2013. Bernard’s next duty station will be at the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the Pentagon. As Roach assumed command of La Jolla, he thanked Bernard for turning over a great ship and an even greater crew. “To the warriors and families of La Jolla, I feel especially honored and humbled to take command on this day, the 69th anniversary of the invasion of Normandy. As we embark on our journey of preparing for and conducting our deployment, we will face many chal-

La Jolla community group civic reports La Jolla Community Planning Association, June 6 By MARIKO LAMB

ning groups will again have the opportunity to provide input for the city’s fiscal year 2015 public infrastructure budget. The LJCPA will begin the input process at July’s meeting, where all La Jollans

and La Jolla organizations are welcome to submit suggestions for infrastructure projects to prioritize in the community. • The city is ready to sign off on LJCPA’s bylaw amendments, which were approved by the planning group members in March. “We did have to make some minor changes to the language of the bylaws that the city found were a little confusing or wanted to be worded,” said LJCPA Vice President Joe LaCava. “The essence of what we did has been preserved in its entirety.” The bylaws will be brought to the trustees at next month’s meeting for final review. • The LJCPA passed a motion requesting the city refrain from removing heritage trees until the community group has had an opportunity to provide its input. The motion came as a result of a heritage tree that was removed at 7850 Ivanhoe St. because it was causing damage to the sidewalk. Although the Planned District Ordinance Committee recommended removal of the tree in April, the LJCPA did not get the opportunity to review the project before the tree was removed. The next La Jolla Community Planning Association meeting will take place July 10, due to its regularly scheduled meeting falling on a holiday. See the full LJCPA report at ljtoday.com.

Bird Rock Community Council, June 4

By DAVE SCHWAB

AMENDMENT TO ACCOMMODATE ESHA DENIED — Trustees rejected

the city’s requested amendments to the La Jolla Community Plan to establish an environmentally sensitive habitat area at Children’s Pool beach in a 9-6-1 vote. Despite several attempts to help shape alternative language for the city moving forward, no other motions were passed. Some trustees expressed frustration the changes were imposed on the local planning group by the city. “The community plan is very specific about what needs to be done with the resources we have,” said trustee Tom Brady. “There’s a lot more to amending a community plan than just a two-week notice the city gave us to amend our plan. I think it’s just absolutely wrong.” Although LJCPA vice president Joe LaCava said the city is going through the appropriate process for a discrete community plan amendment, Brady said he is frustrated that other proposed community-generated amendments have fallen by the wayside. “To change the community plan is a very extensive process. The preparation of changes and the activation of the community plan is a hell of a process,” said Brady. “There’s an accumulation of seven or eight items that should be at the top of the list that I think the community should be address-

Volunteers and donations are being sought for the 34th annual Bird Rock Fourth of July Parade this year titled “Waves of Freedom.” That was the good news dispatched at Bird Rock Community Council’s (BRCC) June meeting at Lupi restaurant. First-time event coordinators this year are Mindy McNeill and Kim Mcintyre, who “inherited” the event from past coordinators Julie Cockrell and Erika Meyer. “We decided we’d try and take it over for them,” McNeill said. “Otherwise, it wasn’t going to happen. I thought that would be sad.” The theme, McNeill said, came to them naturally. “The ocean is in our backyards, and Kim’s husband is in the military and was coming home from deployment, so it kind of rolled off our tongues,” she said. The neighborhood parade, McNeill said, is truly homegrown, having started out modestly with a few “Beaumont Avenue residents’

ing instead.” Although trustee Ray Weiss agreed that the changes are imposed on the local planning organization, he also believes the future of the beach is out of the local community’s control and, instead, in the hands of state and federal law. “This is a way of the city covering its rear end by having the community plan conform to what they have to do anyway,” he said. “This is something that is in the community plan not because the community supported it, but because it has to be in there for the community plan to be consistent with regulations.” DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS MOVE FORWARD — Despite some concern

by neighbors about the impact on parking on Kearsarge Road, the 1644 Crespo Drive project involving a 700-square-foot detached guest quarters on a 0.2-acre site was approved by trustees.

A first-place Uncle Sam Award goes to the parade entry with the biggest impact. The Murfey Cup Fourth of July Spirit Award goes to the best-dressed house on Beaumont Avenue. There are also Silver Bowl and best runner-up entries presented. “It’s just a fun, neighborhood parade,” said McNeill, who said the event costs between $4,500 and $5,000 to stage. “It’s all funded by donations rather than sponsorships,” said McNeill, noting the parade needs the community’s financial support as well as volunteers willing to donate their time both before and

during the event. Parade donations can be sent to Sandy Solis, 5781 Waverly Ave., La Jolla, 92037. For more information, email McNeill at mcneillsd@san.rr.com. See the full BRCC report at ljtoday.com.

La Jolla Town Council, June 13 By DAVE SCHWAB La Jolla Town Council was updated on a long-term transportation project extending trolley service from downtown San Diego to University City, UCSD and Westfield UTC at its June 13 meeting. Allan Kosup, I-5 corridor director for Caltrans, gave a slideshow presentation on the Mid-Coast Corridor Transit Project, which will add eight new trolley stations from Old Town in an 11-mile stretch north. New trolley stops are to include Nobel Drive, UCSD East and West campuses, Executive Drive and the UTC Transit Center

in University City. Kosup said the challenge with the Mid-Coast project has been to do the trolley extension “holistically.” “There are lots of tools in the toolbox to solve the transportation problem,” he said. “But it’s not just about building things. It’s also about demand management, reducing demand for solo-vehicle transportation while educating people about transportation alter-

News A record 2,500 participants raised $300,000 in support of student scholarships on June 8 at the UC San Diego Triton 5K, an annual race that takes place during alumni weekend. Since 1996, the event has raised more than $3 million to benefit 900 students. Alumnus and current graduate student at UCSD Nick Sigmon was the top male runner at 15:43. The fastest female participant was Nihal Kayali at 17:17, a La Jolla native and current undergraduate at Yale University. A corresponding race happened the day before in Hong Kong, where 17 UCSD alumni held their own race on the other side of the globe. Stella Maris Academy held its annual Field Day — a tradition for 18 years — on June 11 at La Jolla Cove. Every grade, from transitional kindergarten through eighth grade, participated in the event, directed by physical education teacher Norm Guay.

Mt. Soledad cross once again in the spotlight with proposed legislation U.S. Rep. Duncan Hunter, Jr. (R-50) has introduced legislation that would protect the Mt. Soledad Veterans Memorial with its landmark cross by allowing “any of 57 religious symbols authorized by the National Cemetery Association, including the Christian cross,” at federal war memorials. Reacting to Hunter’s legislation, San Diego attorney Jim McElroy, representing the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which is opposed to the cross at the Mt. Soledad War Memorial owned by

the federal government, said, “You can’t pass a law that abrogates the U.S. Constitution. For 25 years the courts have ruled that government should not take sides in matters of religion, should not endorse or support one religion over all the other religions.” McElroy argued there’s a qualitative difference between crosses on individual gravesites and the one at the Mt.

Coastal rail improvements costing about $6.5 billion will be done in segments over the next 40 years along the 26-mile I-5 corridor from downtown San Diego north. Kosup said the project segment in La Jolla’s Golden Triangle will upgrade I-5 interchanges in the area making them “more aesthetically sensitive.” A case in point is the I-5 Genesee Interchange Project, which will remove and replace the Genesee overcrossing. “There will be about two years of construction on that,” Kosup said. The I-5/Genesee Avenue Interchange Project will expand, from five to 10, the number of Genesee Avenue overpass lanes to accommodate greater future traffic demand.

unregulated commercial activity. “Lifeguards have made it clear they will not do anything (enforcement) on the east side of the boardwalk.” “It would be nice to have someone down at the park on a regular basis to keep an eye out,” agreed LJSA chair Tim Lucas. “With all the fees paid by outfitters and vendors going for permitting to the (city’s) general fund, we ought to be able to fund a ranger,” said newly appointed LJSA board member Sharon Luscomb, owner of La Jolla Kayak. LJSA board member Izzy Tihanyi concurred. “We want the money to stay at the beach,” she said. “The way it’s been going, it’s a mystery where it (permitting fees) goes.” Coakley Munk suggested a new avenue LJSA might try would be to get a group together to approach Mayor Bob Filner about supporting funding for a Kellogg Park ranger during the office hours he hosts the first Saturday of the month. In other matters, San Diego Police Department officer Cindy Meyer of Northern Division gave a presentation to community planners on

Fred Sweet, producer of the La Jolla Fashion Film Festival (LJFFF), visited the Town Council to discuss the upcoming two-day festival at the Museum of Contemporary Art. “It is a true international festival,” Sweet said, adding the festival will likely sell out again this year. The LJFFF is the world’s largest gathering of fashion film professionals with hundreds of attendees screening the top 1 percent of fashion films worldwide, as well as networking and attending seminars, panels and press receptions. Town Council trustee Mary Soriano said she’s attended the fashion festival and she praised the work of filmmakers involved as being “subtle and passionate.” Town Council trustee Egon Kafka agreed. “These films are the most creative stuff out there,” Kafka said. “It’s unbelievable how Fred (Sweet) makes this happen year after year. It’s amazing.”

what can be done to curb solicitors and ice cream vendors in the Shores. “Vendors can’t be parked illegally, they have to be moving through neighborhoods, have to be licensed with permitting showing and can’t go within 500 feet of schools,” Meyer said, adding the police want to work the community to be proactive about enforcing regulations, particularly governing ice cream vendors whom some Shores’ residents feel have become a nuisance. Meyers urged residents who see illegal vending activity to contact her at cmeyer@pd.sandiego.gov. She said providing documentation, photographs, license plate numbers, etc. are helpful. Chairman Tim Lucas reported that, due to IRS rule changes, LJSA, at least temporarily, has lost its nonprofit status. “It will cost us a $400 application fee for reinstatement,” Lucas said, noting the group’s indemnity insurance is also coming due, which will cost another several hundred dollars. “My hope is that we can get board membership back up to 16 members so that we can spread the cost of indemnity insurance out more,” Lucas said.

to open up a [dispensary] business.” Franco thinks if done right, the return of dispensaries could be positive. “If we legitimize these businesses and do proper permitting with construction upgrades, they could be profitable businesses, employ people and be good for the economy,” he said. Beachfront planning groups, like those in Pacific Beach and Bird Rock, which have had medical marijuana dispensaries before, have mixed feelings about their return. “The position of the Bird Rock Community Council has not changed, we are against the location of marijuana dispensaries in our neighborhood,” said advisory group chair Jacqueline Bell. Bell said District 1 City Councilwoman Sherri Lightner’s office told her that “under the mayor’s proposed regulations for marijuana dispensaries, none would be allowed in Bird Rock or elsewhere in La Jolla.” Public opinion over the dispensary issue is not nearly as clear in Pacific Beach. Brian Curry, chair of Pacific Beach Planning Group, said the community remains divided over the issue. “I’ve entertained many inquiries from PB residents who are very concerned about the proliferation of dispensaries, who felt that they were not necessarily for sick people that need marijuana to treat their illnesses but for recreational use, which is a problem and an issue,” Curry said. “But there are also some in Pacific Beach who were supportive of them before, think they’re great and are amicable about the possibility of them returning.” Curry said Pacific Beach planners have not taken a position for or against dispensaries, adding group members have mixed feelings on the issue. Curry said the planning group has adopted a wait-and-see attitude toward dis-

pensaries. “There’s probably a reasonable — and rational — way to handle this,” he said. “Hopefully, the mayor and the City Council will figure it out.” Filner, a medical marijuana proponent, has nonetheless stated recently that dispensaries, at present, are not legally permissible in any land-use zones anywhere in the city, and that any that have opened have done so illegally. “In January, the mayor committed to preserving the status quo regarding it being illegal to site medical marijuana dispensaries in the city of San Diego until the time the City Council adopts a new ordinance,” said Lee Burdick, director of special projects and legal affairs in Filner’s office. “At the same time, [the City Council] asked the mayor to provide them with information, including mapping where medical marijuana dispensaries might be located. They asked for additional cost data regarding licensing, permitting and law enforcement. We are in the process of developing that information, and we hope to return back to the council with that information in the next weeks, at which point the council will decide how to follow up with the community planning groups.” The questionable legality of dispensaries could be cleared up with a new draft land-use Medical Marijuana Consumer Cooperative

Ordinance released recently by the city for public review. In October 2009, the City Council voted to establish a Medical Marijuana Task Force. On March 28, 2011 the council voted 5-1 to approve an ordinance allowing medical marijuana dispensaries in designated zones. However, on Sept. 27, 2011 the council voted 7-1 to rescind that ordinance. But the city is back for a second bite out of the apple. The council on April 22 directed the city attorney to draft a new medical marijuana ordinance using the previously adopted 2011 ordinance as a template. Medical marijuana dispensaries would not be allowed within 1,000 feet of public parks, churches, schools, child care centers, playgrounds, city libraries, minor-oriented facilities or other dispensaries. The newly revised ordinance would add a 100-foot buffer between dispensaries and residential zones, and also prohibit them within 1,000 feet of sensitive “uses” like drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers. Under the new ordinance, Filner would identify those city departments responsible for issuing permits and developing fee structures for dispensaries. He would also be required to provide a list of community planning groups to be contacted for input on the new land-use dispensary ordinance, as well as providing an analysis of potential zoning impacts, including square footage of use allowed, within each council district. Jonathan Heller, spokesman for City Attorney Jan Goldsmith, said the new revised land-use ordinance is out for public review and will likely not return to the City Council for further action for several months. Several medical marijuana dispensaries and landlords leasing to them did not reply to repeated attempts to contact them for this article.

A strange trip into the vinyl dimension Those searching for some thought-provoking art to take in over the coming weeks might want to stop by Pannikin Coffee & Tea starting on July 1. Fine art photographer John Purlia, whose work centers around largescale photos of three-dimensional dioramas he creates in his La Jolla studio out of a staggering collection of found objects, will present “Tales from the Vinyl Dimension: Portraits and Landscapes” at the coffee house from July 1 to July 31. Purlia’s vignettes, which usually include a message embedded in their titles, send the viewer into a surreal world where Kewpie dolls and other figurines dominate strange landscapes, often against the backdrop of a vintage vinyl record. For the upcoming exhibit, Purlia said he wanted to zoom in on the central subjects — action figures and other toys — to force the viewer to look more closely at what often goes unnoticed. “Over the past few years, I’ve been diligent about taking ‘behind the scenes’ photos of the stage construction to document elements you don’t see in the final image,” Purlia wrote in an email. “I take these with my pointand-shoot camera from all kinds of angles to give new perspective on a piece, or to just get a little closer to an interesting aspect of the story. In the past, I’ve used these shots in book projects or on my web site, but more recently have posted these shots to social media as ‘sneak peeks’ of new photos.” Purlia was struck, while working on “Tales from the Vinyl Dimension,” by one of these behind-the-scenes shots.

“The shot appealed to me because one of the things I’ve tried to accomplish through my work is to invite the viewer to look very closely at objects they may otherwise take for granted,” he said. “As kids, we look very closely at our toys, examining every detail and every flaw, and I felt this particular behind-the-scenes shot accomplished this in a manner that likely would be missed in the large piece, as it brought the viewer even closer to the scene I had constructed.”

He decided to add to the show a series of “mini-landscapes” — closein shots centered on a figure emerging from the center of a vinyl record. He then wondered how much closer he could get to the figures, and using the macro setting on his point-andshoot, took another series of portraits shot about an inch away from the toys’ faces. Purlia also added a video element to the exhibit, with more than 30 minutes of looping video, including stop-motion animation, slideshows and time-lapse footage. Viewers, he said, will get a sense of the threedimensionality of his work through the video, for which he started with a finished photograph set up in his light tent, and, step by step, removed

the figurines, toys and other elements, slowly emptying the tent. “The frames are then reversed on playback to create the illusion of the scene building itself up from nothing,” he said. “It’s an interesting — and time consuming — process that requires me to develop a storyboard for the animation in reverse.” Purlia said his work is often mistaken for Photoshopped images created by compiling images from different sources. “That is not at all the case — and I don’t even own a copy of Photoshop,” he said. “Each piece is built as a three-dimensional diorama inside a light tent using all kinds of collected objects: records, books, toys, curios, religious figures, etc.” Once the scene is set up, his exhaustive process involves taking photo after photo for reference shots and scrutinizing them on his computer, then making minute changes to the scene — a step that can take days or even weeks. “With the final staging in place I take several photos, all from the exact same vantage point using a variety of camera settings, then process these shots on my computer — sometimes working on a single photo, sometimes combining as many as a dozen photos — to generate a single image that will be shown at an exhibit,” he said. “Tales from the Vinyl Dimension” will feature themes of political and religious conflict, narratives Purlia said he has been exploring for several years. The exhibit will include a reception with the artist on July 6 from 5 to 7 p.m. Pannikin Coffee & Tea is located at 7467 Girard Ave. For more information about Purlia’s work, visit www.johnpurlia.com.

Q & A with a top fashion photographer Leading up to the La Jolla Fashion Film Festival and International Fashion Film Awards on July 26 and 27, La Jolla Today will feature interviews with movers and shakers in the fashion and film industries, some of whom will be attending the awards. This week, fashion photographer Pavel Badzhakov talks about what it takes to have an eye for fashion and how to capture that on film. Q: Do you feel international events such as the LJFFF can bring people together in ways the Internet

and Facebook can’t? A: I am 100 percent positive that Internet events or Facebook, etc. can’t even compare to a festival like LJFFF. Being a part of this and the chance to meet some of the best industry professionals is a unique experience. The direct contacts and the ways to share the knowledge with other people is something that no Internet platform is able to offer so far. Q: How did you get involved with fashion film? A: I have worked as a professional fashion photographer for 16

years now. Four years ago, I predicted that still images were going to evolve to short movies, and my assumption appears to be correct. It was then I started to create short fashion films. Two years ago, I was spotted by one of the largest fashion television networks in the world (FashionTV) and shortly after that my films were exposed to the world. Q: What are the important ele-

CONTEMPORARY FINE ARTS GALLERY will host an artist opening reception for its newest exhibit, “Not Your Mama’s Teapot” on June 22 from 6 to 9 p.m. Artists Jane Burton and Marcela Panasiti will be featured in the show, which centers on large-scale unique ceramic sculpture. Burton’s work involves the coil-building method of ceramics to create her 4-by-20-foot pitfired figures. “My work incorporates techniques such as pit-firing, oxides, stains and slips that create a timeless and ancient look,” Burton said. “I’m fully immersed in the process from the first time I dig my fingers into the clay until I pull the vessel from the ashes. In my large-scale pieces I work in stages. The ini-

ments that make a fashion film successful? A: That’s a very good question. Videography and cinematography have become the new way to express ideas of the up-and-coming artists. It was something that had not been explored much yet, but it became very popular very quickly. Creativity is something that helps a fashion film to become successful. There are no rules anymore and the only boundaries we have are our ideas. Of course, the gorgeous models are still the 100 percent rule for getting attention. Makeup artists, hairstylists and designers from all over the world are creating the fash-

tial stages are like the beginning of a relationship, dealing with surface issues and structural problems, technical and conceptual issues. As the sculpture grows and becomes closer to my height, my relationship with it changes, becoming highly personal and more intimate.” Panasiti creates organic murals using hand-crafted tiles she shapes from the adobe red clay of Sedona, Ariz. “The shapes and the colors in the unique Sedona landscape, formed by the sun, the wind, the water and the rain inspire me to experiment with this art form using simple materials like adobe clay,” said Panasiti. “In working with the earth in Sedona I have learned to respect the natural materials and to realize that I can’t control exactly how the work comes out. My work reflects my love of architecture and construction. The reason I first came to Arizona was to work for the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture in Phoenix and the geometric elements in my work are inspired by his buildings.” Contemporary Fine Arts is located at 7946 Ivanhoe Ave. For more information, visit www.contemporaryfineartsgallery.com, email cfasd@connectnet.com or call (858) 551-2010.

ion teams of tomorrow and only the future will show what else we’re about to experience... Q: What advice would you give to aspiring filmmakers? A: Be positive, try new techniques, break the rules, share your knowledge and results, collaborate with the industry professionals, do not be afraid to dream and ask “stupid” questions. And shoot, shoot, shoot. There are no wrong steps, only new experiences. Also, it’s important to have a good eye.

The Associated Press – NORC Center for Public Affairs Research recently released the findings of a national poll on long-care. The poll interviewed Americans who were 40 years or older on their perceptions, attitudes and ideas about aging and long-term care. What was found was this: Most Americans underestimated the cost of nursing home care and overestimated what Medicare pays. Almost one-third of the people interviewed don’t want to think about getting older. Sixty-five percent of Americans are not putting money aside to help them pay for possible long-term care needs.

Women With Hair Loss Can Have Thick, Healthy Hair Volume is the most requested service of all clients. Thick, healthy hair is never out of style! Even with all the excellent professional volumizing products available, nothing compares with the real thing: thick , healthy human hair! The unique patented process used at Judy's salon attaches a protein bond of real human hair to a small section of your own hair. The bonds are so discreet you can style your hair anyway you choose.This unique application process makes it the only system that does not further damage your hair Most women who want this service suffer from thin,weak and damaged natural hair, but once this application process has been applied, you will be amazed at the transformation that occurs, not only in your hair, but also in your outlook! • How Do You Match Extensions ? If you are blending colors choose extensions that are the same level of color as the clients own hair . If you are changing the level of the client’s hair choose a shade that works well with the skin tone. A coloring process can be done to the natural hair 48 hours prior to application and extensions can be matched to that. For clients with thinner hair, extension with a smaller attachment bond and a single strand application process so the hair is not damaged and can hold the weight of the extension. This will give natural looking volume and length to thinning hair. If a client with curly hair wants to wear their hair straight then nothing needs to be done to the extensions . If the hair is worn curly most of the time the extensions can be permed prior to attacment to the natural hair. • What Type of Extensions Do You Use? Judy uses Great Lengths all-natural hair extensions and prefers these extensions because they are created from 100% human hair and use a unique, application process that attaches a bond of protein the same molecular structure as your hair. This application process does not harm your own hair . While others use techniques such as welding, waxing, gluing or knotting,which strain your hair to a high degree Judy uses a much more gentle principle called modulating. An extremely high-tech method of bonding the hair strand to your own hair. Extensions can be used for volumising, lengthening, colouring or simply adding texture; Judy will offer a free consultation guiding you through your new style. • Can Extensions Damage My Hair? No, they will not. Actually, even very

fine and damaged hair can become healthier if you’re wearing hair extensions because they will protect your hair from things that could damage it like curling irons, blow dryers, styling heat and environmental damage. Because of the unique application bonding system, the extensions can be easily removed. This is different than many hair extension methods that bond too tightly to your hair. Those old methods can lead to hair breakage when being removed. Judy’s hair extensions are joined to your natural hair by using a safe, all-natural, keratin protein bond application system.

Goodwill Retail Store Now Open in La Jolla Goodwill Industries of San Diego County is pleased to announce the opening of a beautiful new retail store and donation center in La Jolla, on Girard – just off Torrey Pines Road on Thursday, June 27 at 10:00 am. Goodwill’s new location is easy to find, and parking is convenient. “We are here for the long term,” said Mike Rowan, CEO. “We have found a beautiful space, in a beautiful place and intend to be a valued asset to residents and local merchants.” One of Goodwill’s basic strategies is to reduce, reuse, and recycle. The store is filled with donated treasures from the local area, and every day there will be more arriving through the donation center out back. Just like any retailer, Goodwill rotates merchandise on the sales floor, and dedicated shoppers can visit weekly and will be delighted to find new treasures have appeared. “We are unique!” added Beth Forsberg, VP of Operations. “Everything you have ever bought, or have received as a gift ends up at a Goodwill store eventually.” Goodwill invites local residents to stop in, check out the newest items up for grabs in the store, or drive by to drop off clean reusable clothing, gently used household goods, jewelry and collectibles. Goodwill has an easy drive through drop off for

donations at the back of the store. Goodwill Industries of San Diego County is an autonomous, local 501(c) 3 not-forprofit organization, part of an international network of independent charities sharing a common vision. Goodwill’s mission is ‘To get people with disabilities and other barriers to employment jobs by developing their skills and work habits through training and real work.’ Our purpose is ‘Getting People Jobs’. We offer job related programs that serve people with varying levels of ability, giving everyone the skills, the time, and the confidence to get to work. San Diego's Goodwill chooses NOT to conduct

traditional fundraising activities; we use the revenue we gain from selling donated items; fee-for-service, reuse, recycling and salvage activities to fund the operation of paid job training programs and employment services. The things you no longer need become the product we use to give real work experience to your neighbors. The local Goodwill has nearly 1,300 employees in San Diego County, and is headquartered in Pt. Loma. For more information on this, and other locations visit sdgoodwill.org or call (858) 752-6181.

ride. Let’s talk about the general state of surfing in California right now. In the near 50 years that I have been in the water, I have never seen a more creative and exciting time in surfing. No, the waters aren’t as clean as they used to be and yes, it’s more crowded then ever, but there are more acceptable waves to ride than there ever have been in the past. At any given time at almost all breaks, you see a wide variety of people riding waves on all sorts of equipment. Some ride a traditional surfboard or boogie board, while others body surf or ride a Paipo type of board. Hand planes and

The recent event, held at the US Grant Hotel, was subtitled “All That Jazz.” The hippest guests donned 1920sstyle attire for the black-tie affair, and many models and entertainers wore flashy costumes of the era. Attractive flappers and showgirls posed seductively, complementing the party’s Great Gatsby theme. The fundraiser honored the Jewels of San Diego — people whose leadership and philanthropic contributions raise much-needed funds to continue the Arc of San Diego’s important work, serving more than 2,500 children and adults with disabilities.

Most people mistakenly think open houses are easy — not so! If you think that, then try to shadow a real-estate agent. You should have from between 15 to 20 open house signs placed at all of the major highways and road intersections to direct traffic, sometimes as far away as five miles. So you probably thought all you needed to do is to set out your signs, sit on your couch watching television and magically your house gets sold? Good luck with that! There is much planning and preparation that takes place well before placing signs and baking those delicious processed cookies. The details are extensive and there is not sufficient space here to cover all. Just know that it is imperative to present your house in a “WOW” mode. Boring turns people away — by stopwatch they will come in,

look around and leave within a minute and a half. “WOW” factor retains the attention of prospects and slows people down so they want to engage. Engaging allows an exchange of information and may motivate the buyer to visualize the benefits of your home to them. If your house does not have a “wow” factor, tape your college diploma to the toilet seat — just do anything to connect with your visitors and get in conversation mode, rather than selling mode. Real estate is a buying decision, not a selling decision. Now this is important: before jumping to conduct an open house, be sure to think of the unthinkable. Protect your valuables. You cannot predict who will be coming through your house, and unfortunately, there are a lot of bad people out there, so assume you may have discourteous and clueless people bringing along their children, dogs, reptiles and

REAL ESTATEBRIEFS >> Prudential California Realty has awarded one of its best performing agents and one of its top teams in La Jolla for their achievements in sales. Karen Hickman and the Tash Team of Betty Toroyan and Barry Tashakorian were recognized nationally by Prudential Real Estate for their contributions to the La Jolla real estate community. “Karen and the Tash Team continue to raise the bar for agents in the La Jolla community, and among their

Toroyan and Tashakorian were added to the list of “Top 100 in San Diego” for the first quarter of 2013.

They have frequently ranked in the top two percent of Prudential’s agents nationwide.

La Jolla Today A life without passions or missions Doing it Better By Natasha Josefowitz, Ph.D. ne of my friends recently told me she felt she was always searching for something, but didn’t know exactly what she was looking for. She doesn’t have a mission in life, she said, like a passion to paint or write. She has a job she likes, but it does not enthrall her. She is happily married but worries if there is something extraordinary out there that she’s missing. Her question made me wonder whether it is a disservice to lead people to expect a “life passion” or a “life mission” as necessary for fulfillment. Is it necessary to have a passion to be satisfied with one’s life? Yes, it is wonderful to have a great talent for painting, writing or music or working in scientific discoveries, making a dif-

O

ference in the lives of children or the lives of patients in a hospital or being innovative in technology, but these do not have to be all-consuming. These and other endeavors can be fulfilling but only one part of one’s life, with satisfaction also found in family and leisure activities. After my husband died, I was so bereft that I felt my life had lost all meaning. A psychologist friend of mine said, “Meaning is overrated.” It helped me to put my life into perspective. And so it is with passions and missions. They are unnecessary in most people’s lives. Yes, it would be nice to dedicate ourselves to the betterment of mankind — but how many of us have opportunities to do that? Is it possible to expect too much of oneself, to romanticize passion and mission? Can one of life’s goals be something totally different, like trying to have integrity in all of one’s dealings, to be honest in communications, to do the best one can in making others’ lives a little easier, to be compassionate — in other words to be content with being a good person? Content with one’s work, with one’s

family life? Some people do have an allencompassing need to be creative; the great artists of the world sacrificed everything for their art. Other people are true missionaries and spend their lives in the service of others. And then there are the rest of us who muddle along wondering what is missing when we don’t feel the urge to do great deeds or lack the opportunity to be heroic. There is a need to transcend oneself, to be part of something larger, to serve some greater cause. Many of us have known the exhilarating feeling of sharing something momentous with one’s neighbors and community. When people battle floods together or unite as a community to raise a barn or renovate a park, they experience a high from working hard toward a mutual goal. We feel joy and camaraderie celebrating the success of sports teams we support and spill out into the streets with our neighbors when they win a championship. But these events occur infrequently, and so we must

of the event comes during the luminaria ceremony, for which luminarias — which participants are urged to decorate throughout the day — are set up along the track and all participants take a lap in silence. Photos or quotes honoring individuals who have fought cancer are shown. “It gets quite emotional,” Meronoff said. Meronoff, a La Jolla High School graduate and a financial advisor for Edward Jones in La Jolla, has been involved with Relay for Life events for several years, since losing his cousin to cancer. “Cancer has really rocked my family,” he said. “My brother and I started getting involved and we found that we really had good time.” At one point, Meronoff and his brother both served on the event’s downtown San Diego committee. Now that the event has become the biggest one in the region, he has committed himself to helping grow La Jolla’s version. His immediate goal is to simply “get people to the event, walk a couple laps and see what it’s all about.” “We want to get more survivors there, too,” he said. “The more survivors that come, the more inspirational an event it will be. The whole point is to inspire hope in everyone.” Meronoff encouraged even those who haven’t been affected by the dis-

19

ease to check out the event. “Chances are if you haven’t been affected by cancer, at some point you will, as much as I hate to say that,” he said. “But the great news is there’s some very smart people out there, and there are some great organizationss raising lots of money to pay for research, and scientists are making some impressive findings.” Following the night spent walking the track and camping out at the high school, participants will regroup for a Fight Back ceremony at 9 a.m. on Sunday, during which they will pledge to continue to promote the cause and educate others on how they can contribute. “It’s just a great community event, where people are able to share their stories, survivors can come together and we can show those who are currently fighting cancer that there’s hope out there,” Meronoff said. “When you have a track with 50-100 survivors walking that first lap, it’s so inspiring.” Participants can register for the event in teams or as individuals at relayforlife.org/lajollaca or at La Jolla High School on the day of the event. Meronoff said he’s still searching for volunteers to help with the event. For more information, email lajollarelay jamie@gmail.com or tiffany.lynch@ cancer.org. For those who wish to have a photo or quote in honor of someone who has fought cancer shown during the luminaria ceremony, email lajollarelay. luminaria@gmail.com.

CONT. FROM PG. 3 and international resource for marine ecological research for Scripps and other ocean science organizations that address ecosystem-based management. The building was designed to bring together Scripps scientists from multiple disciplines to develop new sensors that will provide the data needed to integrate observations and predictive models of California’s nearshore waters and coastal ecosystems and their responses to climate change. Funded in part by a $12 million award from the U.S. Department of Commerce National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the building was awarded a Sustainable Communities Champion Award by San Diego Gas & Electric for its green building features. The lab features a 61-kilowatt rooftop photovoltaic system on its roof. The solar panels produce enough energy to power 40 homes and keep 128,246 pounds

ALZHEIMER’S CAMPAIGN WAGED BY LOCAL AUTHOR — San Diegonative Tess Gerritsen — the mind behind the bestselling crime novel series and TV drama “Rizzoli & Isles” — has declared a war on Alzheimer’s with an online fundraising campaign in memory of her father, who died of the disease. Proceeds will go directly to The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) to support its Alzheimer’s research. Each $5 donation enters the donor’s name in a prize raffle (a $25 donation is equivalent to five entries). Two grand-prize winners will get to name one character each in the next “Rizzoli & Isles” novel, coming out in 2014. Three runners-up will win prize packages that include a signed copy of Gerritsen’s most recent hardcover, “Last to Die,” a “Rizzoli & Isles” baseball cap, T-shirt and surgical scrub top, and handcuff earnings. Gerritsen has also pledged to match every dollar raised, up to $25,000. To join the campaign and make donations, visit www.gofundme.com/War-on-Alzheimers. For more information about Gerristen’s campaign, visit www.tessgerritsen.com/blog/what-scares-you/.

make the best of just dealing with our daily lives. I, too, am often torn between feeling, on the one hand, that I should do more volunteer work and be more active in my community, and on the other hand, thinking that at 86 I can allow myself to read more, see friends and smell the flowers. So maybe it is also OK to not have a passion or a mission but just do the best we can every day. Perhaps being oneself, being there for family and friends, is

21

really not only good enough, but actually quite wonderful. One of my goals is to never let a day go by that I don’t have some positive interaction with someone. It can be a kind word to a checkout clerk at the supermarket or a warm “Hello, how are you?” to the deliveryman. I believe these small acts of caring may make a difference to the person in the moment and may even carry on further in the way he or she interacts with the next person. They say a butterfly flapping its wings in Africa has an impact on the air currents half a world away, and so it is with every little thing we do.

A five-item live auction featured an adorable maltipoo puppy, which the winning bidder, Ramin Pourteymour, will name Gatsby. A paddle-raise brought in thousands before dinner, which featured an exceptionally delicious baseball-cut filet of beef with a rich red sauce, and “chocolate majesty” for dessert. Wayne Foster’s group provided stellar entertainment throughout the evening.

A superb musical performance was also the centerpiece of Mainly Mozart’s latest soiree. Chaired by Jo Ann Kilty, its venue — Rancho Santa Fe’s Village Church — was chosen for its magnificent architecture and acoustics. A pre-concert reception featured wines, tasty snacks and a silent auction; VIP patrons enjoyed a special selection of heavy hors d’oeuvres created by MM’s talented official caterer, Ron McMillan. The concert began, perhaps

unsurprisingly, with works by Mozart. The performance quality was astounding — also unsurprising, because MM is noted for unsurpassed dedication to quality. Accordingly, the musicians are among the very best — incredibly, the roster of MM’s festival artists includes no less than 10 concertmasters and 17 principal musicians from noted orchestras across North America. Dessert buffets and champagne awaited at intermission, as well as a surprise. Adam, Ian and Sophie de la Houssaye, very young violinists from the San Diego Young Artists Symphony (now merged with MM), delighted the guests with a brief but charming recital. The concert’s second half presented Beethoven’s Symphony No. 1 in C. Another stunning performance, it resulted in an enthusiastic standing ovation and a curtain call. Afterward, several of the festival artists joined the VIP patrons for a celebratory port, cheese and chocolate reception. Conversations with the musicians revealed that they sincerely appreciated the opportunity to meet and perform with other top-level artists. They loved the fact there weren’t any weak links among the players. Musically, they’re all at the top of their game, so it was like a masters’ group. Audiences find it a pleasure and a privilege to hear such an assemblage perform. And MM makes it possible for us all.
