t’s that time of year. Couples are buying expensive jewelry, donning fancy clothes, fighting for the perfect date at the perfect venue and gathering friends and family as they make a public announcement of their lifelong commitment to each other. That’s right — it’s wedding season. Though San Diego — with its (mostly) perpetual “70 and sunny” weather — sees a fair number of weddings all year round, there still exist those few months when almost every wedding professional works an event every weekend. From about April to October, the wedding industry clicks into overtime as couples plan for that perfect day. And plan they must. For what is essentially a party to celebrate love, weddings involve months of planning and preparation, even for those couples who think they’re putting together a simpler event by foregoing the big traditional affair. Venue, food, drink, flowers, attire, guest accommodations, order of events, music, rings, vows… the list goes on. Fortunately for couples planning their weddings in La Jolla — one of the county’s most popular wedding destinations — the community offers just about everything one needs to plan such an event within one ZIP code. Even better, couples from all over San Diego will have the chance to come face to face with all the vendors they’ll need for their wedding at the Wedding Party Bridal Show on July 1 at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla at Aventine. Founded more than a decade ago by Pamela Ann Noxon, the Wedding Party Bridal Show brings together all the wedding services a couple could dream of under one roof. But rather than just a trade show pairing up potential customers with potential service providers, Noxon has molded the show into a unique event that showcases carefully vetted wedding professionals and exposes soon-to-be newlyweds to available services that they didn’t even know existed. “I felt San Diego needed something that would help target better wedding professionals and experts — those that have a positive attitude and that are more talented, who would bring more to the couple’s special day than just a vendor,” she said. “The web is wonderful for researching what you want, but if you’re going to hire people, you need to meet them and feel out if they’re a

The lifeguard union is stepping into the long contentious Children’s Pool saga with a new solution. DON BALCH | Village News
Lifeguard union proposes long-term solution to endless Children’s Pool saga BY MARIKO LAMB | VILLAGE NEWS After years of observing and mitigating increasingly impassioned arguments at Children’s Pool beach, the lifeguard union has come up with what it says is a comprehensive solution to the pro-seal versus pro-beach access debate that has tirelessly ensued for years. “I’ve watched the evolution of this seal issue since 1993,” said lifeguard union spokesman Ed Harris. “When I look at it, I see a lot of problems. The only way to get back to where we were is to come up with a compromise. If SEE SEALS, Page 2
Post office task force still working toward solution BY DAVE SCHWAB | VILLAGE NEWS La Jolla post office is not up for sale. At least not yet. But there’s still no guarantee that it won’t be. The original timetable for selling the facility, however, is “out the window right now,” said Leslie Davis, interim chair of Save Our La Jolla Post Task Force at the group’s June 22 meeting. Comprised of a broad cross-section of community volunteers, the task force has been working to counteract the U.S. Postal Service’s Jan. 9 announcement that the La Jolla Post Office at 1140 Wall St. is to be relocated and its building sold to raise revenue for the financially strapped federal institution. To block the potential sale, the task SEE POST OFFICE, Page 3

we continue to butt heads, we will never get to where we can enjoy the pool and not have the distractions of signs and bullhorns and people yelling at you … We’re killing our own tourism.” The proposed solution, Harris said, was inspired by local landscape architect Jim Neri’s use of boulders at WindanSea beach to designate an area for motorcycle parking — an idea he hopes to re-create at the Children’s Pool to separate seals and beachgoers. “In the wintertime, the kids don’t use the beach — they certainly don’t use the water — but the seals do, and they should have a place to pup. So in the wintertime, we propose marking off about 70 percent for the seals using movable boulders,” explained Harris. In the summer, when humans enjoy the beach and seals enjoy the water during the day, the boulders will be moved to designate approximately 70 percent of the beach for beachgoers, and 30 percent for seals near the seawall. “Believe it or not, the seals do not like the beach when we like the beach. It’s too hot,” he said. “They like nothing more than to be out on the rocks, especially when it’s hot. But they do like to come in at night, and they do like a place where they can get away.” Harris said the seals tend to gravitate toward the seawall, and they will naturally make that area their home. Humans, too, will have access to the beach and water, and they would have no reason to go to the seals’ designated area.
The lifeguard union’s proposal also addresses the concern about contamination in the bacteria-ridden enclave — a problem that could negatively affect humans and seals alike. Each time the boulders are moved twice a year, a certain amount of unsanitary sand would be removed and dumped over the seawall or another nearby boulder area to get flushed out naturally by the ocean, he said. “The sand will slowly work its way back into the water, the ocean will clean it [and] when it comes back ashore, the pollution is greatly reduced,” he said. “The ocean will clean that sand in a day. The fish will eat it and the sand will move right back in. It’s a very environmentally sensitive way of doing this.” Harris said the proposal is not set in stone, and he hopes both sides will come to the table to devise a win-win plan together founded on the idea of using moveable boulders. “There are still revisions that need to be done with this,” he said. “I want the groups to get together and come up with a final product — figure out how much land should be set aside and where the boulders should be.” La Jolla Parks and Beaches members backed Harris’ plan at their June 25 meeting and supported his suggestion that user groups come together to establish a feasible, longterm mitigation alternative to the year-round seal rope. “All groups are in support of doing something to settle the conflict down there,” said Parks and Beaches treasurer Phyllis Minick at the meeting. “I think you have a dynamite, workable plan.” Others at the meeting praised Har-
If you are pressured by “friends” to try drugs, be prepared in advance to say No! If you were driving fast along a smooth freeway, enjoying it, but knowing that a few feet hence you would crash, explode and painfully burn up, would you be foolish enough to chance it? If you were tempted by a delicious looking candy bar but knew there was poison inside, would you be dumb enough to try? When you were younger, you were taught being good got you rewards...being bad got you punished. If you are driving or intend to – forget the drugs! One DUI and you will have had it! With a DUI on your records, you wont get a driverʼs license or a job. These punishments are quick. Visit a rehab center – that should be a real incentive to stay clean. You may not be aware, but some enormous financial ills in our country today are traced back to international drug trafficking. South of the border, many horrendous crimes are commited for drugs – beheadings and assassinations, not only of rival drug dealers, but innocent bystanders as well. It would certainly be a patriotic stand if you refused to participate as a consumer and refused to coperate with them. Young people, donʼt buy drugs for your own good and the good of your close and widespread environment! Say NO drugs and alcohol. instead, find something more rewarding and fun to do with your hard earned money. Buy a bike, a computer, or sports equipment. Instead of wasting your time with drugs, find positive activities- join a church group or YMCA, or sign up for athletic programs at a community center.
Donʼt be a DOPE or a DOPE HEAD! Take the happy road..be smart, get rewards!
ris on his leadership and emphasized the need for a solution to the longstanding problems at the Children’s Pool. “This is probably one of the most refreshing solutions I’ve heard, in my memory, for the Children’s Pool,” said Justin Schlaefli, president of San Diego Freedivers. “It’s one of the few workable solutions that achieves a true balance for the ecology that’s there, the seals that are present, the tourists who want to see the seals and the people who need access at the Children’s Pool, like freedivers.” One guest stood in opposition to the proposal, however. “The city attorney said dredging and moving was not feasible. The contamination is due to the manmade wall, and the seals have occupied it,” said seal advocate Dr. Jane Reldan. “The [California Coastal Commission] staff did consider your proposal, and that was not part of the staff recommendation. The compromise on the table right now before the Coastal Commission is the rope issue.” Harris countered that the rope barrier is only a band-aid fix to the real problem at the Children’s Pool. “We’re opposed to the year-round rope because it is not going to solve the problem. It’s going to perpetuate the problem. We believe a compromise can be made,” he said. “Both sides have guilt. Right now, we’ve got such polarization on both sides to the point where we’ve got to lop off the extremes on both sides. We need to bring people in the middle who are reasonable and say, ‘Hey, this is it.’” Harris will present the proposal to the California Coastal Commission at its July 11 meeting, where he, on

behalf of the lifeguard union, will request denial of the proposed year-round rope barrier and ask the commission to give the community six months to come up with a comprehensive, long-term solution to the Children’s Pool issue.
“Right now, what we have is a free for all. We’ve allowed parties to selfpolice and be their own enforcement, and that’s where society breaks down,” he said. “I want people to look at this [plan] in a fair light and say, ‘Wow, this is something I can get behind.’”
The California Coastal Commission will hear the city's permit application to install a permanent year-round rope barrier at the Children's Pool beach at its next meeting on July 11 at 8:30 a.m. The meeting will take place at the Chula Vista Council Chambers, located at 276 Fourth Ave. For more information, call (415) 407-3211 or visit www.coastal.ca.gov.

BY DAVE SCHWAB | VILLAGE NEWS Holding the county out as a model of efficiency, Supervisor Ron Roberts spoke on the local government’s proven record of fiscal success, touching on a variety of themes at the La Jolla Community Center on June 20. Introducing Roberts, community center board chairman Glen Rasmussen spoke about Roberts’ background — a native San Diegan and SDSU undergraduate who earned his master’s degree in architecture from UC Berkeley before embarking on a successful 20-year architectural career and serving on both the City Council and County Board of Supervisors. “Roberts is known for his fiscal discipline and for his focus on at-risk youth,

However, if it turns out there’s no other alternative but to sell the 75plus-year-old historically significant institution, the task force has Plan B in place — namely, ensure the community gets the first option to buy it. Davis clued her colleagues in on the latest developments. Task force representatives, she said, met recently with aides to U.S. senators Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer, as well as local Congresswoman Susan Davis. “Susan remains committed to helping us,” Davis said, noting an interest-
senior issues, long-range planning, health and his transportation leadership, including the proposed extension of the trolley from Old Town to UCSD and UTC,” said Rasmussen. Roberts, whose Fourth Supervisorial District, previously administered by Pam Slater-Price, now includes La Jolla since the 2010 census redistricting, said the news he had to share about the county was “largely good.” That good news, however, has not been in the news much, he said, because, “We’re not in (financial) crisis.” The event was part of La Jolla Community Center’s ongoing Distinguished Speaker Series, which has featured high-profile leaders like Qualcomm founder Irwin Jacobs and worldrenowned Scripps oceanographer Wal-
ter Munk. The center, formerly a senior center, is being transformed into a multi-dimensional, full-service adult recreation facility with a wide variety of programming. “A lot of people know who the supervisors are,” said Roberts during his hour-long speech. But, he added, “Hardly anybody knows what the county is.” Roberts said San Diego County, which includes 18 cities and a large unincorporated area, is 4,200 square miles, which, he said, “is bigger than two states — Rhode Island and Delaware — and whose $5 billion budget this year is actually bigger than 13 or 14 states’ budgets.” From a population standpoint, Roberts said, San Diego has more people than 20 states.
ing “wrinkle” in developments involving the potential sale of the post office includes the fact that Coldwell Banker “has the agreement with the U.S. Postal Service as the sole real estate agent for La Jolla’s post offices.” Coincidentally, Davis said Feinstein’s husband “is a big player in Coldwell Banker.” Part of the problem with the task force’s “rescue mission” is that it has gotten tangled in the intricate bureaucratic web of decision-making. “We are not stone-cold clear who makes the decision as to who puts [the post office] up for sale,” Davis said, adding the latest information indicates “if it happens, it happens at the federal level.” Diane Kane and Angeles Leira, two former city employees, have been
working to expedite La Jolla post office’s pending application for state historical designation. Kane was told by state postal officials that “we’re the only post office being considered as one of the 11 most-endangered postal properties,” characterizing La Jolla’s facility as a poster child for preservation. Leira said the community “needs to put conditions” on any prospective post office sale, suggesting a facade easement requiring building historical features be preserved as one possible way to go about it. “Facade easements do protect,” agreed Kane. “[But] they cost money.” The task force will next meet Friday, July 6 at 1:30 p.m at the Balmer Annex of Wisteria Cottage, 780 Prospect St.

Despite its immensity, the county has proven to be manageable given supervisors’ fiscal restraint. “We have the highest credit rating of any local government agency in the country,” said Roberts, noting that the Board of Supervisors “is very fiscally responsible. That doesn’t mean we don’t spend, but that we’re careful.” Roberts said the overriding fiscal directive of supervisors during his tenure, unlike state government, has been to “never take funds are coming from,” said Roberts of one-time money and start new pro- the county’s philosophy on fiscal management. grams with it.” The county, said Roberts, took an “You [as a supervisor] want to start SEE ROBERTS, Page 4 something — you figure out where the

La Jolla to light up the night sky with July 4 pyrotechnics BY MARIKO LAMB | VILLAGE NEWS San Diego’s skies will light up in a sparkling spectacle this Independence Day for an annual tradition as American as apple pie and baseball. It’s time to gather up the loved ones, don the red, white and blue, and celebrate at any number of the city’s dazzling fireworks shows this Fourth of July. AROUND LA JOLLA • The Fourth of July fireworks show at La Jolla Cove is a place where local friends, families and neighbors have come together to salute America for nearly 30 years. “The fireworks display is a part of our community,” said Deborah Marengo, director of the La Jolla Community Fireworks Foundation. “Besides being an extremely important patriotic event, the Fourth of July brings many people together to celebrate in Scripps Park, La Jolla Shores, many homes that view the fireworks, and visitors to our community.” The brilliant 16-minute pyrotechnics display will begin at 9 p.m. and can be viewed from just about anywhere around La Jolla Cove and La Jolla Shores, including Scripps Park and Kellogg Park. The annual show takes place only through the efforts of the community,

entirely different approach — privatizing many essential services — which has proven to be practical, as well as fiscally sound, and the answer to resolving some revenue shortages. He referenced the county’s privatizing of its trash system as a prime example. “It was unheard of,” Roberts said of privatizing landfill and trash systems. “But we put the whole thing [which was losing $40 million a year] up for sale and we sold the system for $182 million, and then [the county] got money for it from tipping [user] fees and the landfills went on the tax rolls and we got tax money for them. Does it get any better, selling something to someone and then saying, ‘Send me rent payments in the form of taxes?’” After his speech, Roberts fielded audience questions. Board member Sherry Ahern asked why the city couldn’t emulate the county’s fiscal approach. “It’s a different political environment,” he said. “We’ll never tell them what to do. But if they want to learn from what we’re doing ...” Asked his stance on Irwin Jacob’s controversial plan to eliminate cars in much of Balboa Park’s Prado area and build a parking structure elsewhere instead, Roberts said, “The idea of clearing the cars out of that part of the park is a good idea.” He also characterized a proposal to close the park’s Laurel Street Bridge as “a mistake of the highest order.” Roberts also discussed at length his visionary plan for redeveloping the Embarcadero area surrounding the County Administration Center on the downtown waterfront. He told of plans to turn it into a huge pedestrian park with grass and other landscaping and a cascading series of water fountains that he said could be “an active space where you could go and enjoy yourself.” For more on the La Jolla Community Center’s Distinguished Speaker Series, visit www.rifordcenter.org.

Every dollar makes a difference.” For more information or to donate to the show, visit www.savelajollafireworks.com.

NEWSbriefs Home invasion in La Jolla startles housekeeper A La Jolla housekeeper was surprised on June 22 when an armed gunman entered the home where she works and threatened her with a rifle or shotgun, then led her around the house while he collected miscellaneous items and put them in a trash bag. The suspect, described as a thin white male in his 30s, 5 feet 9 inches tall with blue eyes, left after about 30 minutes. The victim was not injured. The suspect was wearing blue jeans, a striped shirt and dirty white shoes. He possibly fled the scene in an older model car with a loud muffler.

For those who stick around, Ocean Beach’s famed marshmallow fight will ensue just after the final spark has burned out. “Originally, it was a small marshmallow fight on the sand between some locals,” said Knox. “We are hoping people will go back to only throwing marshmallows on the sand and not on the street after the fireworks. On the street, the marshmallows are almost impossible to clean up and costs us a fortune to clean the street numerous times.” She also urged those who participate in the marshmallow throwing to join other community-minded residents early the next morning to clean up the aftermath. “Morning After Mess” cleanups, hosted by Surfrider, will take place throughout the coastal communities on July 5 from 9 to 11 a.m. Locations include the Ocean Beach Pier, Belmont Park, the end of Pacific Beach Drive and the South Harbor Jetty in Oceanside.

University City residents, planning group give an emphatic ‘no’ to potential new power plant Power company reps say plant will be one of the cleanest power plants worldwide BY MARIKO LAMB | VILLAGE NEWS Capital Power received an unwelcome reception on June 25 at the Canadian-based power company’s first public airing of its proposal to build a 350- to 800-megawatt power plant on a 50-acre city-owned site near Nobel Drive and Interstate 805 in University City. In May 2010, city officials issued a request for proposal (RFP) for the excess, unused portion of the North City Water Reclamation Plant site, which they considered to be suitable for power generation. “The northern end of that triangle has long been sought after by power companies because of its location next to a substation,” said Mayor Jerry Sanders’ spokesperson Russell Gibbon. “In 2010, the mayor’s office put out the RFP with a view toward beneficially reusing this underutilized site to generate revenue for the city revenue fund, tax revenue for the general fund, and jobs for unemployed residents.” The city accepted applications for six months before selecting Capital Power as the preferred bidder for the long-term lease opportunity, whereupon the city and the power company began negotiations over the next year and a half. In mid-June, the negotiations were complete, and contract agreements between the two parties — including option and lease agreements, a memorandum of understanding related to
Mt. Soledad decision stands — for now The U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear the case involving the constitutionality of the 43-foot cross atop Mt. Soledad on June 25, making last year’s ruling by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals — that the cross is unconstitutional and must be taken down — the present standing in the decades-old case. The high court denied hearing the federal government’s appeal due to the interlocutory nature of the case, which has been remanded by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to the U.S. District Court to “fashion an appropriate remedy.” Court of Appeals Judge M. Margaret McKeown emphasized in her written opinion that the court’s Jan-
the continuation of ongoing discussions for the sale of reclaimed water to the proposed lessee, and approval of an ordinance for voter ratification of the proposed lease agreement — were made public for the first time. Although the lease agreement was previously headed for the November ballot for voter ratification, the power company decided to pull the ballot initiative to allow voters more time to vet the project. At an emergency University Community Planning Group meeting — called by the local planning group and District 1 City Councilwoman Sherri Lightner — residents weighed in on the project proposal. Although the reasons differed, the plan was met with unanimous disdain. “It is the wrong site for so many different reasons. The location is just 2,000 feet away from a dense residential neighborhood, as well as such important community assets,” Lightner said, citing the local library, recreation center, high school, synagogue, Marine Corps Air Station Miramar and national cemetery as being in close proximity to the proposed site. “It’s also bad for business — University City’s economic engine.” She also said the site, which was recently found to have Pueblo land attributes, is environmentally sensitive and that building a power plant on the site could drive away potential businesses and renters in the area. Capital Power representatives coun-
tered that they anticipate a need for power generation in San Diego by 2018, and that the power plant is needed to supply locals with reliable power generation using some of the cleanest technologies in the world. “Local power generation makes sense for one important reason — reliability,” said Patricio Fuenzalida, director of business development at Capital Power. “We’ve identified a need for additional capacity in the 2018 range. If California’s economy recovers — and we have hope in California — there’s going to be an increment in demand for power generation.” The size of the facility and generation capacity will be determined by the need for anticipated power in that time frame, said project manager Peter Sawicki. “If we’re successful with our proposal and it’s approved, this power plant will be one of the cleanest and most efficient power plants in the world,” he said. “Our proposal includes a combined cycle design — one of the most efficient natural gas designs in the world. This facility allows for high efficiency and low emissions.” Measures would also be taken to minimize noise level, emissions and aesthetics issues, and a health risk assessment will be performed to ensure no harm would come to any of the local sensitive receptors, said Sawicki. “The facility would have to address all of the environmental regulatory agencies’ requirements. We recognize that the multi-species conservation plan habitat would require mitigation

Amici's Now Open In La Jolla! You don’t have to live in Manhattan or New England to enjoy authentic East Coast style pizzas, full-flavored pastas and the freshest gourmet salads anymore. La Jolla now has it’s very own “slice of New York” with the newly opened Amici’s East Coast Pizzeria at 811 Prospect Street. The company was founded in the San Francisco Bay Area in the mid-1980's by two East Coast transplants, Peter Cooperstein from Boston, and Mike Forter from New York. They discovered they had a shared passion for the type of pizza they’d grown up with. They also shared a frustration at not being able to find the good quality pizza and distinctive Italian fare they'd grown up with. The pair set about re-creating all the elements involved in making the distinctively delicious pies from the famous pizzerias of New York, Boston, and Connecticut, including the huge traditional brick ovens. Thus, the first Amici's East Coast Pizzeria opened in 1987, in downtown San Mateo. Needless to say that it was a huge success and the public welcomed Amici's with open arms, so much so that eleven more locations have followed in the Bay Area and now one in La Jolla. Last year Peter and Mike decided the time was right to explore locations for Amici’s beyond the Bay Area. La Jolla was an immediate “no-brainer” in Cooperstein’s words.“The location on Prospect Street was perfectly located in a high traffic visitor area and surrounded by a discerning and savvy dining population who seemed willing to support and patronize their local restaurants” , he said. As with their Northern California locations, the traditional brick ovens are the focal point of the spacious open kitchen. Diners get to watch pizza dough being stretched and tossed by hand before they’re topped with homemade Tomato Sauce, Whole-Milk Wisconsin Mozzarella, and their choice of toppings. Four minutes in those ovens next to an open flame that keeps the cooking temperature above 700 degrees is all that’s needed to cook a Large 15” Pizza to a crisp, bubbling perfection. With a focus on authenticity, friendly service, and customer satisfaction, Amici's hopes to become La Jolla’s standard for high-quality, freshly made pizzas, pastas, and salads! Visit Amici's soon to taste the difference for yourself!

Business highlight: Papalulu’s serves up beach-fresh fare BY DAVE SCHWAB | VILLAGE NEWS If reasonably priced tropical cuisine appeals to your palate, check out Papalulu’s on the main drag of La Jolla Shores. “It’s eclectic,” said owner Nanci Kirk of the homemade cuisine she serves at her restaurant, now open for dinner, as well as lunch and breakfast starting at 7 a.m. at 2168 Avenida de la Playa. “We’re a bit of Mexico, a bit of Hawaii, a bit of Southern California — it’s the beach with twists,” she said. One of Kirk’s culinary creations is a Thai dish that she calls Thai crusted chili salmon. “It’s sweet Thai and chili sauce — it’s awesome,” Kirk said. “I can cook a great dish.”
MUSTGO Just because San Diego’s I Love Poke Festival is over doesn’t mean locals have to settle for anything less than the freshest catches made by the area’s leading Asian seafood chefs. Some of the festival’s award-winning chefs will ensure poke lovers have more to look forward to this summer with the launch of poke cooking classes at Cups Culinary in La Jolla. Chef James Harris, winner Antonio Friscia’s first- of the I Love
Kirk boasts that the meat served in her restaurant is higher quality, coming all the way from Niman Ranch in central California. “It’s grass-fed, no hormones, just better for you,” she said. A longtime La Jolla restaurateur, Kirk previously ran The Cottage, known for its outdoor patio dining, in the Village. Dining outdoors at the Shores is still the trademark of a Kirk restaurant, as Papalulu’s is situated in a courtyard. Just like her recipes, Kirk started completely from scratch when she opened Papalulu’s five years ago. “There was nothing in here — there wasn’t even a kitchen,” she said of her eatery space, which previously had been Rudy’s Cafe but was vacant when she took over. She has built it, quite lit-
Poke Festival’s traditional poke category, will teach participants how to re-create his classic ahi poke dish, sprinkled with macadamia nuts, sesame oil, Hawaiian salt and taro chips on June 29 from 6 to 9 p.m. Chef Antonio Friscia, winner of the festival’s non-traditional “Any Kine” category, will demonstrate how to produce his own winning dish — a yellowtail, bay scallop and octopus poke with chili yuzu, uni and micro shiso — alongside other Gaijin-style Asian fusion dishes. Friscia’s class will take place on July 24 from 6 to 9 p.m. Cups Culinary is located at 7857 Girard Ave. The cost is $65 per person. RSVP at www.cupslj.com/classes-parties or (858) 459-2877.
erally, from the ground up. Kirk named her second La Jolla restaurant in honor of her parents, Papa and Lulu, whom she said came out of retirement in Mexico to be her first two employees at The Cottage. “I had a 2-year-old and a 6-monthold when I started the business back in 1985,” Kirk said. “Papa was the first cook at The Cottage and Lulu was the first waitress.” Kirk was retired all of six months between her stints as owner/operator of The Cottage and Papalulu’s. “I did catering and then this [Avenida de la Playa] space came up and I just fell in love with it,” she said. Kirk felt something was missing from the area’s restaurant scene, and she thought she could broaden the mix of
La Jolla Shores restaurants where Piatti’s and Babarella’s have been standouts for years. “There was no place for families with kids that was not just burgers,” she said, adding, “You can still get a burger here.” The combination of outdoor café patio dining and eclectic beach cuisine makes Papalulu’s what it is — a fresh, cooling ocean breeze on a summer day down at the beach. “I now have a little tiki bar with beer and wine and some specialty drinks nobody knows about yet,” said Kirk. The atmosphere, she said, is “casual, flip-flops, dress-as-you-want outdoors.” Her cuisine, meanwhile, is always fresh, and could be described, she said, as “a lot of healthy stuff, gluten-free,

GO GREEN “What’s trending now for weddings is whatever has not been done before,” said Kimberly Buffington, owner of Flowerchild in La Jolla. “Brides are requesting their own personal style mixed with whimsy and creativity.” Buffington said popular wedding themes of late include “green” or “eco chic” weddings. In one of her recent weddings, Buffington incorporated organic coffee beans, lentils and locally grown purple hydrangea and green cymbidium orchids; invitations, menus and escort cards made with soy ink

Flower arrangements don’t have to stick to tradition. New trends include the use of organic elements, like this orchid-adorned tabletop arrangement (right and center, courtesy La Vida Creations Photography) by Kimberly Buffington of Flowerchild.

on recycled paper; and tree seedling party favors wrapped in burlap and adorned with a purple ribbon. “I am a huge fan of thinking outside the flower box, and I love to mix organic elements into my work,” she said. “Flowers are no longer the plant in the middle of the table. Instead, the centerpiece is now at the forefront demanding attention and stirring conversation.” USE MODERN TOOLS With the explosion of social media sites and online images, modern brides tend to know exactly what they want before even setting foot in a flower shop, said Ginny Boland, event design manager at Adelaide’s. “Brides peruse Pinterest, wedding blogs, websites and online magazines to create their dream wedding,” she said. “Most of them have already created their own version of a vision board. They have everything at their fingertips to create their one-of-a-kind wedding.”
The food One of the most important aspects of planning a wedding — and one of the things most guests will remember, for better or worse — is figuring out what to serve. Weddings, just like couples, come in all shapes and sizes these days, and the food is no exception. Some go for five-course lavish meals, while others opt only for hors d’oeuvres and cocktails. Whatever your food fancy, chances are you’ll find someone in La Jolla who can create it. Establishments like The French Gourmet and Girard Gourmet offer couples everything from the appetizTrends in wedding desserts are ers to the cake, and can create tending toward cupcakes and pies.

If buying multiple dresses isn’t in the budget, changing accessories might be a good alternative. Add a beaded or colored sash to the dress and use a flower made out of feathers in your hair, or change out your jewelry for a completely different look. Rachel Larraine is a local designer who makes

With personalized service of the utmost quality and products from top designers and best growers in the world, Adelaide’s can cater to any type of couple and their budget. “As Adelaide used to tell her granddaughters, ‘There is something here for everyone.’ We strongly believe that and work to make every bride happy,” Boland said. One of Boland’s favorite weddings this year was a vintage-lace-meets-rustic-cowboy theme. The exclusive ranch wedding had tables dripping with lace, crystals and luscious pink peonies crossed with high-end gourmet barbeque and cowboy boots. “The best thing about planning a wedding in 2012 is that you make it your own unique memory,” she said. “No wedding is alike.” — Mariko Lamb
brought food trucks in. People want to be a touch different. Everyone wants to be unique.” Other caterers in the area include Giuseppe Fine Catering and The Abbey, with catering options ranging from simple and elegant to lavish and unique. As for trends in the culinary scene, Malecot said he’s seen everything on either end of the budget spectrum. “People are either very concerned with their budget or they have all the money in the world,” he said. “But mostly, we’re seeing that people like extremes. They’ll maybe have some beautiful linen or satin, and then have a very funky menu.” Whatever the food requests, caterers — and wedding professionals in general — appreciate working with someone pleasant. “It takes a special breed of person to work in weddings,” Malecot said. “Some brides are very easy to work with, and some like to micromanage everything. But I always say that if you’re not buying peace of mind, I’m
amazing creations using feathers, silk, crystals and more. The bottom line is today’s bride doesn’t hesitate to bend the rules. Another rule often getting bent involves bridesmaids — and this is one I think is long overdue. There is nothing worse than wearing something you despise all day, pretending to look happy in it and let everyone take your picture! Your bridal party will consist of several different body types, and one dress will not compliment all of them. Thankfully, retailers like J. Crew and Ann Taylor have caught on and sell all their bridesmaid dresses in several colors and silhouettes. Brides, relinquish some control here! These girls are here to have fun and support you — the least you can do is let them be comfortable. Your pictures will look better if everyone in them is happy and feeling confident. Even though wedding fashion is unique to each bride, there still exist some trends. Lace is big right now (perhaps thanks to Catherine Middleton), while a blush color — beautiful for any bride — is showing up more and more, and tangerine is popular for a bridesmaid. Dresses are being made of more natural materials like silk, organza and chiffon, replacing heavier materials like satin. This shift has also accompanied changing colors, from white to antique ivory, vanilla, ecru, champagne, etc. Strapless seems to be a perennial favorite, but halter and keyhole backs are also quite popular.

Whether planning a grandiose formal occasion or a simple beach wedding, every couple could use a little help. Delegating tasks to relatives or receiving professional assistance for the grander scheme can help ease a couples’ workload, reduce stress and ultimately ensure the event goes off without a hitch. “A wedding is two things. It is most likely one of the biggest parties the bride and groom have ever planned with all the people most important to them attending, and it is the event marking the biggest decision they will make in their lives,” said Cynthia Zatkin, owner of the La Jolla-based Cynthia Zatkin Events. “The combination of those two things is very exciting, but extraordinarily stressful — even for the most competent in us. Hiring a wedding planner means having a guide, a personal assistant, and a new BFF through the process.” Wedding planners can assist in setting and sticking to a budget, navigating the enormous field of vendors, keeping the wedding preparations on track and creating a design that caters to the couple’s unique personality. “The little-known secret to good wedding planners is that we actually save our clients a lot of money through our guidance, negotiation abilities and vendor relationships,” Zatkin said. “We decrease stress ... and act as an insurance policy that all of their planning will actually be perfectly implemented on the wedding day.” — Mariko Lamb
The time out Couples spend so much time and energy planning their wedding, it’s important they take a break in the preparations as the event draws nearer for a little pampering and mental health time. The bachelor and bachelorette parties can be a good time to get away from the planning process and relax with friends. While a night out on the town is tradition- Isari offers in-home flowally the way soon-to-be-newlyweds cele- er-arranging classes. brate their impending nuptials, there are myriad other ways to take time out from the chaos of planning such an event. Spa days have become a popular way to unwind with friends, and La Jolla has no shortage of facilities in which to sit back and let yourself be pampered. Another unique activity to do with friends or out-of-town guests is the private flower party. Solana Beach-based Isari Flower Studio offers private in-home parties for any occasion, incorporating the relaxing effects of floral design into a celebration complete with delectable treats and tasty cocktails. Master horticulturist Morgan Jenkins said research on horticulture therapy suggests that working with nature reduces stress, tension and rewards nurturing behavior, making a floral design class the perfect prewedding stress reliever.

embellishment is giving way to beautifully layered and gathered gowns — an eye-catching look, but very simple. One thing is for sure: perusing all the styles of gowns shows how skilled someone must be to create such a beautiful garment. Happy wedding season everyone! Whether you’re the bride or guest this season, have fun and remember this is about celebrating with family and friends, so the mood should be joyous, light and festive. “It should be one of [the bride’s] favorite days, not necessarily the best day of her life,” Smith told me.

Fashions for bridesmaids run the gamut these days. Tangerine is a popular color.
This place is fantastic! My fiance went here to buy a tux for himself and to look for rentals for our upcoming wedding. At first we didn’t want to go here because we figured, being in Birdrock, it would be more on the expensive side. After a terrible experience at another tuxedo shop, we decided to give A Better Deal a try. I am SO happy we did! Not only was the experience far better than where we had been, but the quality of tuxedos are fantastic, and they ended up being cheaper for his groomsmen to rent! Score!
SABRINA HEFT | Village News
We also had a hiccup and had to push back the wedding after we went in for our first appointment. When I called to explain, they were so accomodating and even let us come back to try on different tuxes months later even though we had already purchased a tux and it had come in. I can’t reccomend this place enough. If you are looking for quality service, quality tuxedos, and great prices, check this place out!!

THURSDAY · JUNE 28, 2012 LA JOLLA VILLAGE NEWS
Starry, starry nights
with Vincent Andrunas The Arc San Diego Foundation, a nonprofit formed in 1992 to support programs and services for the developmentally disabled at The Arc of San Diego, held its 2012 annual meeting and awards luncheon on June 20 at Island Prime. After a social reception, guests enjoyed a three-course lunch featuring a fresh salad, exceptional sandwiches (including a superb lobster and bacon combination) and a decadent “mud pie”
dessert. Foundation chairman Jim Reynolds and Arc president/CEO Dave Schneider presented the Circle of Light Awards. The Silver Award, for donors who’ve made contributions of $100,000 to $500,000, went to La Jollans Phyllis and John Parrish. Their longtime support and assistance to the agency includes serving as chairs of the Jewels of San Diego gala for the past three years. A Bronze Award (for contributors of $25,000 to $100,000) went to Las Patronas (accepted by VP-elect of grants Jena Joyce) for funding the purchase of a wheelchair-accessible van. The Parker Foundation also received a Bronze Award (accepted by president Judy McDonald) for its generous gift to the Sulpizio Family Center capital campaign.

Did You Hear Me? Remember when you were young and your parents were lecturing you and at the end would say “Did you hear what I said?” You would say “yes” and continue on with your own thoughts. Today, as adults, we find ourselves in a reverse situation. Children, at times, must now take over the role as parent to ensure the well being of their elderly parent. Linda calls her mother every night after work and gets the same answer to every question she asks – “Everything’s fine.” Assuming that “everything is fine” and that her mother knows and does what is best may be putting them at risk. Experts advise it is better to discuss the possible need for extra support before the need arises. Sit down with your parent and ask questions about what concerns them about the future, are they worried about losing independence; do they want to stay at home? Become their partner by knowing what legal and financial arrangements are in place. For more resources to help children care for their elderly parents, call the Certified Geriatric Care Managers at Innovative Healthcare Consultants. These RN who are experts in geriatrics will help you know when it is time to bring in professional services to help or when the need to find new living arrangements is necessary. Call them at (760) 731-1334 or view the website at www.innovativehc.com.
Among its many other offerings, the La Jolla Community Center (formerly the Riford Center) hosts a Distinguished Speaker Series. Ron Roberts, County Supervisor for District 4 (which includes La Jolla) and current chairman of the entire Board of Supervisors, spoke at the center on June 20. Guests were enjoying Arc: above: Jim Reynolds (Arc San Diego Foundation chair), Phyllis and John Parwine and hors d’oeuvres when the conrish (Circle of Light Silver Award recipients), Jena Joyce (LP VP-elect of grants), genial Roberts joined them after a long Judy McDonald (Parker Foundation president) day of zoning hearings. His articulate hour-long presentation, entertainingly delivered, revealed that San Diego County is larger than Rhode Island and Delaware, has a budget exceeding that of 14 states and is more populous than 22 states. During his tenure, Roberts has changed the model of county government in innovative ways, boosting efficiency. There are now fewer county employees than in 1995 (and this was true even before the recession), the county library system is recognized as the nation’s best, and while county air has Ron: above: Doreen Schonbrun, Ruth Yansick (LJCC CEO), Ron Roberts (County never been cleaner since measurements Supervisor, guest speaker), Madeline Artman, Glen Rasmussen (LJCC board began 50 years ago, work continues to chair), Reena Horowitz improve its quality.

and the Beatles rock again
It will please many people to know the Beatles are alive and well, playing great music together, and looking forever young. Evidence to that effect was apparent June 23 at the San Diego Symphony’s fifth annual “Tux ’n’ Tennies Summer Bash” at Embarcadero Marina Park South, kicking off the symphony’s Summer Pops series (which will run through Sept. 2).

Fashion Files Diana Cavagnaro Envision ‘It’ The Art Institute of California San Diego presented the fourth annual “It” Fashion Show featuring students’ designs at the Hyatt Regency-Mission Bay on May 25. Jaye Brown, academic department director of Fashion Programs welcomed the group. Grants in the amount of $1,000 were given to City of Hope, Jeans4Justice and the Educational Foundation. Themed “GeoVue-Envision It,” the event blended geometry and geography, with each student using inspiration from the Cubist art movement. The audience saw inspirations from Picasso and other artists reflected in the fashions, and an esteemed panel of judges awarded the scholarships to Shantel Acosta (MarComm Award for pre-show marketing), Kerstin Winter (Trend Setter Award for the most marketable designs), Karlene Keller (Inno-
vator in Design Award), Elina Sheripova (Atelier Award for the best construction and most technical designs) and Luciana Baladerrama (“It” Design Award for the best in show).

The Golden Age of Hollywood The Angels of Aseltine hosted Second Hand Rose, a luncheon and fashion show, at the Town & Country Resort on June 8. As the event began with boutique shopping featuring gently used designer clothing, a shopping frenzy ensued for the designer clothes sold at a fraction of the original cost. Many of the shoppers had waited all year for the event. Actress Kimberlin Brown — best known for playing Sheila on the “Young and the

You want someone who will create an event that feels like you.” Noxon said she aims to cater to every type of couple — be they old, young, traditional, nonreligious, goth, same sex, couples on a budget or couples planning half-million-dollar affairs. Every bride, she said, will find something useful at the Wedding Party Bridal Show. “For the first time in history, we’ve got four generations of brides planning weddings at the same time,” she said. “And this bridal show works for all of them.” So what do today’s brides want? According to Noxon, modern-day weddings tend to be more about the guests than the bride and groom.
“Today’s bride and groom want to create a guest-centric wedding,” she said. “Twenty years ago, it was more about the bride. But now we have more people doing destination weddings, and they have guests coming from all over the world. Couples just want their guests to have a great time.” Having a great time, however, can depend on who couples choose to hire for their wedding. Noxon said couples must be aware that the planning process can be indicative of the wedding itself, and “if you’re not having fun planning your wedding, you’re not going to have fun at the wedding.” It is for this reason, she said, that she only lets what she deems the most competent vendors be a part of the bridal show. And while competency — especially with regards to weddings — comes with a price, Noxon is careful to point out

professionals out there, too.” So what does she suggest for the couple that doesn’t have an unlimited budget? “It’s not all about money,” she said. “It’s not about hiring expensive people or buying expensive things. Everyone has different priorities, so find your top priorities and spend more on those
things. Don’t spend a lot on something just because some wedding magazine said you should spend that amount.” Whatever the price, Noxon urges couples to make sure their vendors lend more than just a service to the event. “The energy of the people you hire,” she said, “is as important as the product they bring.”

CEO Ward Gill welcomed guests, revealing that the symphony, which is San Diego’s largest music educator, will have a balanced budget for its 14th consecutive year. Matthew Garbutt conducted the symphony musicians in works by 18th and 19th century English composers before an intermission for a threeitem live auction by Pierre Charmasson. Then the reincarnated Fab Four took the stage, looking much as they did for their first appearance on Ed Sullivan’s 1960s TV show. They seemed so much like John, Paul, George and Ringo, but in reality, they were Jim, Tony, Tom and Chris — a Beatles tribute band known as Classical Mystery Tour. They looked and sounded just like the originals, doing the costume changes, the wigs and even the Brit accents. The big difference is that they performed along with the full symphony orchestra, adding dramatic depth to the show. Playing hit after hit for nearly 90 minutes, they finished with “Imagine,” “Hey Jude” and finally “Twist and Shout” as a spectacular fireworks show went off overhead.

tles, guests were encouraged to wear their “best Beatles attire” (or variations of the tuxedo-and-tennis shoes dress code for which this event is named). Many arrived in 1960s styles dragged from the depths of their closets (or local costume shops), like micro/mini dresses with wild Peter Max prints, bell-bottom pants, big wigs or uniforms suggesting they were fugitives from Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. The party started with cocktails, a lavish hors d’oeuvres buffet and a rockin’ band playing current hits. Moving to formal dining tables in the concert area, guests strolled along “Abbey Road,” flanked with black-clad chorus members singing Beatles songs. Two doublesided buffets offered unhindered access to a lush assortment of culinary temptations, including beef, lamb, chicken and seafood. Dessert assortments were already on the tables.
