SDUSD trims deficit but will pay a price BY ADRIANE TILLMAN | VILLAGE NEWS

The San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) Board of Education has finalized the 2009-’10 budget on paper that shows cuts the board could make to close the $63 million budget gap. However, its school-by-school impact is unclear and plenty could change as the school year unfolds. On paper at least, the board identified 18 ways to close the deficit that include increasing the minimum number of bus riders from eight to 15 students to save $4.24 million; not reducing the K-2 class size to save $8.1 million in teachers; not purchasing text-

books next year to save $6.5 million; eliminating 30 vice-principals to save $3.36 million (the employees will not be fired but return to the classroom); and letting go of 53 special education staff to save $2.6 million. While the board decided not to fire any teachers, staff without teaching certificates can get a pink slip, according to Jack Brandais, SDUSD spokesman. “The cuts are not binding,” said John de Beck, who represents the coastal schools on the board of education. “They are the board’s present view of what SEE DEFICIT, Page 5

Judge drops Pool’s restraining order BY ALYSSA RAMOS | VILLAGE NEWS

A federal judge on June 29 lifted a temporary restraining order dismissing an ongoing federal case that involves the harbor seal colony at La Jolla’s Children’s Pool, sending the case to state court. United States District Judge William Q. Hayes ruled last Monday that the city of San Diego,

along with La Jolla Friends of the Seals — an animal rights group — must continue their litigation, battling in state court. Hayes dismissed the federal lawsuit and a restraining order protecting the colony. Paul Kennerson, attorney for swimmer Valerie O’Sullivan, who sued and won her case against the city of San Diego 2004 after authorities cited her and others

for “flushing” the Children’s Pool seal colony, said he called Judge Yuri Hoffman and wrote a letter to deputy city attorney George Schaefer in an effort to set a court date sooner than an upcoming July 20 hearing. “The federal case is now dismissed,” Kennerson said, reading the June 30 electronic letter SEE ORDER, Page 3

The most beautiful man in the world at LJP BY CHARLENE BALDRIDGE | VILLAGE NEWS

La Jolla Playhouse opened the world premiere of Claudia Shear’s “Restoration” June 28. Directed by Playhouse artistic director Christopher Ashley, it continues through July 28. “Restoration” is not a play about the Restoration, that period of English history beginning in 1690 when Charles II restored the English, Scottish and Irish monarchies, but about the

restoration of Michelangelo’s 1504 work David, in time for the nine-month celebration of the sculpture’s 500th anniversary. The creation of “Il Gigante” from its block of marble was contentious (two sculptors were involved prior to Michelangelo’s commissioning) and so was the cleaning method. After much wrangling and several departures, including the director of the Academy, it was decided that David would be cleaned a mix-

ture of with distilled water and cellulose at Florence’s Galleria dell’Accademia. The gallery was never closed. Author Shear portrays a dumpy middle-aged art restorer named Giulia. She was born in SEE BEAUTIFUL, Page 4 PHOTO BY CRAIG SCHWARTZ

Margaret Clover passed away June 16 in La Jolla. She was 94. Margaret was born Margaret Anderson in Osceola, Neb. on Nov. 11, 1914. She graduated from Osceola High School in 1932 and went on to Hastings College in Hastings, Neb. In 1934 she needed to earn more money to be able to complete her education. She found that income by teaching in one-room schoolhouses in Osceola and nearby Ulysses. Her living quarters would be in one of her student’s family homes. The school in Ulysses was rated as “superior” because it had running water and an indoor bathroom; regrettably, the Osceola school did not. Her contract for teaching paid $60 a month; she had to provide heating fuel and teaching supplies, thus her lifelong thriftiness. Margaret returned to college at University of Nebraska (Phi Mu Sorority), supported herself as a live-in housekeeper, cook and nanny. She received her degree in home economics from the School of Agriculture in 1938, what now would be referred to as dietetics. She came to La Jolla in 1938 to work at Scripps Metabolic Clinic, eventually becoming assistant dietician. Margaret first lived at the nurses’ home on Prospect and later took up residence in the Tyrolean Terrace overlooking the Cove. A member of the American Dietetics Association, she was elected president of the California Dietetics Association in

1947. In 1936 Margaret became a member of PEO, a philanthropic educational organization proudly making a difference in women’s lives. Membership went back in her family for three generations, so she was very proud of her long tenure. Margaret began attending La Jolla Presbyterian Church in 1938, becoming a member in 1940. It was at church she met her husband Wilber (Webb) Clover, and they were married in the chapel on June 6, 1946. Webb worked at the La Jolla Post Office and Margaret at the clinic until April 1949, when their son Greg was born. Later that year they built a home on Olivet Street, where she lived and gardened for the next 55 years. Margaret loved music and playing the piano, and taught piano to her students during the 1950s. In 1958 she went to work for the La Jolla Presbyterian Preschool, a relationship that would last 16 years and open a new chapter of her life. In 1960, Margaret was named director of the preschool, a post she kept until 1974. It was at the

sent to Schaefer. “There is now no legal impediment to your dispersal of the seals. It is our demand that you do so, [disperse the seals] if you will not do so, please let me know and we will set an Ex Parte date as soon as we can.” Schaefer said the city hired consultants to evaluate two seal dispersal plans — including Kennerson’s “scarecrow” that shoots water at the colony — and will report the results to Hoffman during the July 20 hearing. “The city stands by everything it did in that case… We’re spending tax dollars [on consultants],” Schaefer said. “We’ll report back about the [seal dispersal] plans.” Meanwhile, Brian Pease, attorney for the Animal Protection and Rescue League (APRL), said he planned to file an emergency motion with the 9th Circuit Court of Appeal in an effort to stop Kennerson from forcing the city to disperse the seals. “[The seals will be safe] if I get a stay for the 9th Circuit,” Pease said. Pease’s federal restraining order protecting the colony, mainly during its pupping season, effectively overrode previous state rulings. Hoffman’s July 20 hearing was scheduled to hear results from two seal dispersal plans, the scarecrow plan and a plan that would play barking dog sounds. But Schaefer said state legislators may sign a bill adding “marine mammal viewing area” to the area’s state tidelands grant. “If the legislation does pass, the court does have the discretion to vacate the injunction,” Schaefer said, in a previous interview. “It doesn’t make much sense to dredge the beach.”

eral lawsuit on behalf of APRL — in U.S. District Court — against the city and state, asking for the rope’s issuance. Pease lost. But he said he focused on the Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA), not the rope. • On Dec. 18, 2007, Pease and APRL moved for a temporary restraining order regarding the barrier rope, but the district court denied the request in a Feb. 4, 2008 ruling. • However, on Feb. 27, 2008, the district court issued an order “abstaining from exercising subject matter,” court documents stated. Furthermore, the federal court said, the (federal) MMPA “does not preempt the state law at issue in this action,” the court stated. So Pease immediately filed an appeal in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit. • On March 10, 2008, the court of appeals granted an “emergency motion for injunctive relief pending disposition of the appeal staying ‘application of state law or any state court order to prevent placement of a guideline rope in the La Jolla Children’s Pool Beach.’” Then the Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit dismissed APRL’s lawsuit June 17, 2008, saying the court lacked federal jurisdiction, documents stated. • Pease said he filed another federal lawsuit for the 2008-09 pupping season FEDERAL COURT TIMELINE: • On Dec. 11, 2007, Pease filed a fed- with letters National Oceanic and

Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) officials sent to the city, requesting the rope. Pease focused on the city council’s previous motions allowing a pupping season rope barrier. • Pease requested a barrier rope and a restraining order in an October 2008 APRL lawsuit against the city of San Diego, NOAA agents and the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), Pease said. At this stage, the record supports that federal interest is substantial enough to support the question of federal jurisdiction, Hayes said. At this point, the MMPA “does not provide for citizens to enforce the statute but expressly preempts state laws which conflict with the provisions of the act,” Hayes wrote. All issues regarding marine mammals revert to federal law, Hayes said. “Consistent with his conclusion… filed on August 26, 2005 by Superior Court Judge William C. Pate which the city is obligated to follow specifically states that ‘nothing contained in this order shall be construed as requiring the city to violate any law, rule or regulation of any federal, state or county government,’” Hayes wrote. “At this stage in the proceedings, the state law claim for writ of mandate… involves a dispute or controversy respecting the validity, construction, or effect of federal law.” Hayes granted Pease’s application for a temporary restraining order in the Dec. 18 electronic ruling, “…requiring the city of San Diego to follow two resolutions of its City Council by placing a guideline pupping season rope at the Children’s Pool beach in La Jolla, California.” For more information, visit w w w. s e n a t e . c a . g o v / k e h o e , www.childrenspool.org or w w w. f r i e n d s o f t h e s e a l s . c o m www.aprl.org www.aprl.org/seals.html.

Helen P. Simmons, 78; volunteer and traveler Helen Simmons passed away on June 21, 2009. She was 78. Helen was born in New York City in 1930, where she spent her childhood years. She formed what became a lifelong endearment with the lights and glamour of the “Big Apple.” Upon

marrying Doyle Eugene Bush, she relocated to Miami, where they were blessed with their first daughter, Deborah. Doyle was a successful contractor who soon moved his young family to Phoenix to pursue his career in that rapidly growing city. There they welcomed the birth of their second daughter, Regena. Shortly after, Doyle lost his life in a tragic auto accident and Helen was left a widow with two young children. She married John Simmons of Phoenix a short time later, and they resided there until 1978. When he retired, they moved to La Jolla, where John died in 1997. Helen loved La Jolla and was well known by many as she walked through the Village. She was a loyal volunteer for the La Jolla Historical Society for many years. Helen had one brother, Walter Meller, who died in the Korean War in 1955. She received his Purple Heart. Helen loved to travel the world. She visited England, France, Italy, Greece, Israel and China as well as many parts of the United States. She was always interested in world news and politics. She was a beloved mother, grandmother and great grandmother to her two daughters, Deborah Jacobus of Phoenix and Regena Field of Jackson, Wy.; her four grandchildren, Joseph and Jessica Jacobus of Phoenix and Cooper and Connor Field of Jackson; and her great grandson, Nathan Jacobus. Her complete and loving devotion to her family will always be cherished and remembered for generations to come. ■

Natalija Nogulich is brilliant in three contrasting roles: imperious committee member Marciante, cleaning woman Beatrice and an old woman visitor simply called Nonna. Kate Shindle plays the third committee member, Daphne, who is so very beautiful that her presence creates Giulia’s instant dislike. Over the course of the play, the two women enough find common ground for understanding and friendship. Giulia’s great support, however, is the gallery security guard, Max (perfectly cast Daniel Serafini-Sauli), a married Italian who has spent his entire life with David and expects to grow old with him as well. The play captures the public’s adulation, respect and fascination for the sculpture, which attracts thousands of visitors each year. They wend their way through a room containing blocks of marble in various stages of revelation to demonstrate the process, finally coming into the gallery that houses the sculpture.

funny and endearing. What seems to be a simple 90minute work that unfolds without fuss ultimately becomes a play about life, loneliness, beauty, death, love and what endures. To the playwright’s everlasting credit, we are never told. Superb acting all around deepens characters that could have been stereotypes: the doddering professor, the sourpuss old maid, the flirty Italian. Scenic designer Scott Pask does not attempt to capture David in toto, merely presents a revolving scaffold with parts of him, chest, belly, foot, hand and genitalia. There are projected images (designed by Kristin Ellert), the first rather cubist, and then later, before the unveiling, an image of the sculpture itself, reduced in size. No theater could contain that. Costume

designer David C. Woolard’s creations range from Italian elegance to Giulia’s frumpy work clothes and a special occasion dress that plays heavily into the restorer’s love of David. Dan Moses Schreier is composer and sound designer. Ashley’s acumen as director and commissioner of new plays is ever more apparent. This production is not to be missed by humans, whether art lovers or not. “Restoration” plays at 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays and Wednesdays; 8 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays; 7 p.m. Sundays; and 2 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays through July 28 at the Mandell Weiss Forum, La Jolla Playhouse, 2910 La Jolla Village Drive.

we have to do to balance the budget based on what we already know. It’s an expression of what we would do if we had to make that budget decision right now.” De Beck added the impact of the budget cuts won’t be revealed until March 2010 when the board must dismiss personnel if it chooses to do so. The County Board of Education will now review SDUSD’s $1.18 billion budget to ensure the cuts are realistic and represent a balanced budget. If the County Board finds the budget unrealistic and unbalanced, the board can appoint a monitor to make cuts to SDUSD’s budget, according to de Beck. After outcries from parents, the board decided not to close small schools, including Crown Point Elementary in Pacific Beach and Barnard Elementary in Point Loma, or to share principals between small schools that would have forced one principal to manage both Bird Rock and Pacific Beach elementary schools. But de Beck said those cuts will return to the table when the board discusses the 2011’12 budget. De Beck pointed to the board’s plans — and then reversal of those plans — to change bell times across the school district and share principals among small schools as examples of the board’s fickle nature. “The odds are they will change their minds, because

board members have already changed their mind on so many things,” de Beck said. Mission Bay High Principal Cheryl Seelos doesn’t give much weight to the finalized budget, either. “It will be hard to tell how it will affect anything [at Mission

Bay High School]. We don’t know any more than we did before,” Seelos said. The budget has created moving pieces and it’s not clear where they will land. For example, an increase in class sizes leaves 180 surplus teachers that the district will move around, according to Brandais. Part of the reason for those surplus teachers is that K-2 classes and ninth-grade classes will not be reduced to 15 students per teacher. In this case, principals might choose to use discretionary money to keep class sizes small or the board might send a teacher to a school that is growing, Brandais explained. Teachers could become fulltime substitute teachers or the district could send them back to school to earn a master’s

degree if, say, an elementary school teacher is now required to teach middle school, Brandais said. Lisa Bonebrake, a member of Bird Rock Elementary’s Parents’ Committee, thinks the final budget “has some concessions to parents and communities that may have been the loudest and the most organized, but I’m concerned for some of the communities and schools with lesser voices who most need the support.” She also questioned the potential negative impact of some cuts. “For example, I think that larger classroom sizes in K-4 is bad for all schools and students, but I believe it will have a much more negative impact for some schools than others,” she said via e-mail. “The cuts in special education will also be extremely negative for some schools.” Patt Hom, president of Friends of Pacific Beach Secondary Schools (FOPBSS), said it’s difficult to comment on the budget until the state sends money to each school based on enrollment figures that won’t be finalized until early fall. However, she is worried about the weight that the teachers union holds over the district’s board of education. “I believe the real fight will come when the state finalizes its numbers and we have a better direction for where SDUSD stands,” Hom said. “I am very concerned about the control of the unions in all of this.” Visit www.sandi.net/budget and click on Budget Update to read the budget in full. ■

District keeps same bell times San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) board members voted June 23 to OK a proposal that reversed previous bell time changes, keeping next fall’s bell times unaltered. SDUSD board members reversed previous proposals altering bell times for nine schools and a newer district-wide 15-minute shift for the upcoming 2009-’10 school year. “This switch was a result of parent input to the school board and superintendent from parents and community members across the district,” Torrey Pines Elementary School reported in a June 26 e-mail. “What they approved was to keep the bell times the same,” said Melissa Hudson, SDUSD confidential administrative assistant to the board. According to Hudson, the board voted to reverse all school bell time changes made, except for one school: the Creative and Performing Media Arts Middle School. This fall,

students will begin and end school the same time as last year, Hudson said. In addition to reversing the board’s proposal to alter the 2009-’10 bell times, board members included other schools such as Pacific Beach’s Bayview Terrace — among nine schools that had been given altered bell times last February — in the reprieve. The board’s reversal moved Bayview Terrace’s altered bell time from 7:15 a.m. to its original start time 30 minutes later. La Jolla Elementary School will start at 9 a.m. and end at 3:35 p.m., while both TPES and Bird Rock Elementary Schools begin at 9 a.m., ending at 3:25 p.m. The TPES minimum day bell on Wednesday will ring at 12:45 p.m., TPES reported. Muirlands Middle School will start at 7:30 a.m., ending at 2:10 p.m., while La Jolla High School will begin at 7:25 a.m., ending at 2:15 p.m. For more information, visit www.sandi.net. ■

Bidding farewell to three celebrity legends BY DAVE THOMAS

The old adage that says celebrities die in threes could not have been more true to form than last week. In the span of just a few days, the entertainment world lost the likes of Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson — three icons of the entertainment world, now part of the ages. While all the losses were tragic, they all had different meanings for me. McMahon, 86, was a part of my childhood and well into my 20s. I can remember staying up late at night (not on school nights) watching “The Tonight Show” with my parents. It always seemed that when Johnny Carson was in a hole and the audience was not reacting to his humor (not often the case), McMahon was there to bail him out with that trademark hearty laugh of his. What made the show even better was that McMahon never took himself too seriously, allowing Carson to poke fun at his marriages, drinking, et cetera. While McMahon had experienced financial and health problems in recent years, he was one of our last true links to “The

Tonight Show,” which fortunately still lives on in VHS. The day Carson died (2005) was truly sad for me, for I thought he was the best late-night host there has ever been. Losing McMahon last week was almost as sad, for there will never be another second banana like Ed. Fawcett’s death was expected, since she had suffered from anal cancer for the last three years. Still, the news of her passing was hard for many of us who watched “Charlie’s Angels” on a regular basis in the 1970s, even though Farrah only spent one full season (1976-77) as angel Jill Munroe. Fawcett, 62, had some flops following her one year on the ABC hit drama, but she returned with some awesome movie performances, including her role in the TV movie “The Burning Bed.” Her trademark blonde locks were eventually lost to chemotherapy and the hideous disease that is cancer, but she handled herself with grace and dignity in her final months. For every other man who owned her famous swimsuit poster in the 1970s, we lost a true icon of American pop culture. The most shocking news came last Thursday with the death of

the King of Pop, Michael Jackson. Although he led a less-thannormal life, Jackson was an entertainment icon who redefined the music world. I was lucky enough to see him in concert in Philadelphia back in 1984 when he and his brothers were on tour. To say the show was incredible would be an understatement. As a 12-year-old, I remember the death of Elvis back in 1977. I would rank the news of Michael’s death last week right up there or even higher. He truly was a music legend despite what one may think of his lifestyle. As tragic as the three deaths were last week, it brings home a subtle message: It doesn’t matter how much money, fame or connections one has. At the end of the day, we are all terminal and we’ll all be wheeled out of here under a white sheet. The bottom line is we should make our mark in society while we can.

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT Native son returns for Athenaeum’s next Summer Festival BY CHARLENE BALDRIDGE | VILLAGE NEWS

Once a year, the Athenaeum Music and Arts Library celebrates Mexican-American pianist Gustavo Romero by presenting him during the Athenaeum Summer Festival, for which he has played since its inauguration in 1999. This year’s festival begins at 4 p.m. Sunday, July 5 at the Neurosciences Institute and continues at the same time and location each Sunday through July 29. Known for his impeccable technique and facility, the native son first performed at the Athenaeum as a child. He made his debut with the New York Philharmonic under the baton of Zubin Mehta at age 13. Soon afterward his parents were persuaded to allow him to enter New York’s Juilliard School, from which he graduated. A resi-

dent of Texas, he concertizes worldwide. In previous Summer Festivals, Romero has devoted himself to the works of Chopin, Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Schumann, Schubert and Brahms, among others. This year he celebrates three composers and their 2009 anniversaries: Franz Joseph Haydn for the 200th anniversary of his death; Felix Mendelssohn for the 200th anniversary of his birth; and George Frideric Handel for the 250th anniversary of his death. Such observations make for interesting programming, to say the least. Concerts of July 5, 12 and 26 feature works by Haydn and Mendelssohn. All three composers are heard July 19. The Athenaeum Summer Festival 2009 takes place at 4 p.m. Sundays, July 5, 12, 19 and 26 at The

Neurosciences Institute, 10640 John Jay Hopkins Drive. Tickets range from $25 to $45, with discounts for Athenaeum members. For additional information, visit www.ljathenaeum.org or call (858) 454-5872.

Lavish romance, stunning war epic on tap BY JAMES COLT HARRISON | VILLAGE NEWS

The name “Cheri” refers not to glamorous Michelle Pfeiffer but to her 20-years-younger lover, Rupert Friend. This is definitely a wonderful film for adults and the sophisticated movie fan. Adapted by Christopher Hampton (Oscar for “Dangerous Liaisons”) from French author Colette’s two novels, “Cheri” and “The Last of Cheri,” both written in the 1920s, the film was directed by Stephen Frears (“The Queen”). Pfeiffer and Kathy Bates play retired courtesans in Paris at the end of the Belle Epoque, about 1906. Bates has an errant 19year-old son whom she wants taken off her hands so he can learn the ways of the world. Voila! Who better than her friend Lea (Pfeiffer), a woman of 49 who is considered over the hill? She is a high-class lady of the evening and is more than happy to take on the naïve and boyish Cheri (Friend). The film is filled with sophisticated humor via Hampton’s stylish script. All of the French ooh la la! is done with style and grace as only the Parisians know how to handle. Making love is a cottage industry to them and they are justly famous for it. Unexpectedly, the two lovers are still together after six years

and are in love, an event that was not supposed to happen in Lea’s profession. Complications arise and Cheri’s mother pairs him up with a wealthy young girl (Felicity Jones) his age to make a proper marriage. Mother is a bit meddlesome and is unaware that her son is devastated by having to leave Lea. Frears has mounted a beautifully filmed story with the help of cinematographer Darius Khonji (“Evita” Oscar nominee) and costume designer Consolata Boyle (Oscar nod for “The Queen”). Boyle’s costumes capture the lightness of Pfeiffer’s character, and the heaviness and fussy nature of Bates’ Madame Peloux. Rupert Friend is dressed as the young men of the day preferred. Boyle said, “It was important to them to appear very elegant and sophisticated.” I shan’t give away the story, but suffice it to say it is witty, stylish, sexy and ribald. It’s time well spent and an enjoyable evening at the theater. Miramax Films. “The Hurt Locker” is a stunning portrayal of our American soldiers in Iraq whose dangerous job is to disarm road bombs. Directed by Kathryn Bigelow, it is a spine-tingling thriller with tensions wound as tight as a spring. Most women are not known as

war-film directors, but it doesn’t make any difference with Bigelow’s take on the war, the men and the tolls of the war on them physically and psychologically. Bigelow does a superb job capturing the men’s psyche, camaraderie, fears and disgust about the war. The film was written by firsttime screenwriter Mark Boal, a journalist who had been embedded with a real bomb squad and based the script on his experiences. The story depicts the daily dangerous activity of the U.S. Army Ordnance Disposal team in present-day Iraq. Neighboring Jordan sits in for Iraq, and sand is sand. Relative newcomer Jeremy Renner (he had bit parts in “The Assassination of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford” and “28 Days”) plays the wildman leader of the bomb team who has defused more than 800 explosive devices. He’s a modern-day John Wayne and reminds us physically of the new James Bond. He’s handsome in a rough, tough way, with lots of sex appeal. He seems definitely to be a star on the horizon. Where has he been all this time? Bigelow keeps the film moving at breakneck speed as the men go from one crisis to another, each more intense than the last.

Jeremy Renner and Anthony Mackie are featured in the new film “The Hurt Locker,” written by a journalist who was embedded with American fighting forces PHOTO COURTESY SUMMIT ENTERTAINMENT in Iraq.

The director smartly ups the tension with each episode until your heart is pounding in your chest with fear, anxiety and terror. Will the bombs explode in their faces? Will Renner cut the wrong colorcoded wire? Will the enemy shoot the men before they have a chance to save a village? Touches of humanity invade the film as well. Renner makes friends with a boy who sells bootleg DVDs and CDs. He is, of course, blessed with a touch of larceny, humor and bravado for a 13-year-old. Renner takes him under his wing. Yet, he is still wary of the boy because he might

be a “planted” suicide bomber. “The Hurt Locker” is a highadrenaline, high-voltage film that never lets up the action and tension. This is one terrific film that should figure prominently in the new ten-film Best Picture nominations in next year’s Oscar awards show. The film recently won the Venice Film Festival Grand Prize as Best Film, the Seattle Film Festival as Best Director for Bigelow and the Independent Spirit Awards Best Actor for Jeremy Renner and Best Supporting Actor for Anthony Mackie.

Lamb’s Players Theatre presents Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt’s beloved musical, “The Fantasticks” through July 26 at the Coronado theater. Deborah Gilmour Smyth directs what Lamb’s calls a “re-imagining” of the work, which consists largely of a new scenic concept, the addition of two musicians over the original and some changes in the lyrics of “It Depends on What You Pay.” Robert Smyth and Bryan Barbarin are the scenery chewers in this company, with their portrayals of broken-down Shakespearean actors Henry and Mortimer. Their shopworn, ragged costumes are the brilliant creations

Senior Presents unwraps lovely ladies

This year there were 16 lovely, white-gowned ladies marking the crowning achievement of their young lives at Senior Presents. Having completed six years of community service, accompanied by their mothers, they selflessly served, by way of the San Diego Chapter of the National Charity League, as Ticktockers, a total of 14,000 hours, doing everything from cleaning beaches to using hammers and nails, assisting Habitat for Humanity (136 hours) as part of their service. Others included Meals on Wheels (a total of 1,926, the bulk of hours), Senior Community Centers of San Diego, Salvation Army and the San Diego Food Bank. It was a proud moment when they were led onstage by a contingent of Marines who first presented the colors, then handed each one of them to her father for the processional down the runway. After a fatherdaughter dance, each young lady returned for a solo walk down the runway, symbolically marking her emergence into the adult world. A fashion show followed, featuring the up-and-coming Ticktockers, each of whom will one day be wearing the white dress and dancing with her dad.

Tar on the beach is not always human induced; natural seeps also leak from the ocean floor. In fact, the sticky stuff has played a role in human society dating as far back as 13,000 years.

In more modern times, say within the last 100 years, natural asphalt seeps have been mined to pave California’s roadways. What, then, is the root of the tarballs I constantly see at La Jolla Shores?

Doug and I suspect you are seeing bilge tar being carried from off San Diego Bay or Mission Bay by southwest winds that cause an eddy in the lee of Point La Jolla [located off La Jolla Cove].” Eddies are currents best described as rivers in the ocean that move contrary to the direction of the main current. Some flow close enough to the shoreline to have an impact on the beach. Here, the fast-moving current can and does quickly

move tarballs onshore. Thirty years ago, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration published a report on the “tarball problem.” They determined that tarballs originate from three main sources: 49 percent hail from

land (for example, automotive oils dumped into sewers and vehicles leaking petroleum products onto the roads) where storm drain pollution and runoff from rain washes oils into the ocean; 40 percent come from oceangoing vessels when bilges are pumped and tanks are cleaned; and a scant 11 percent arise from natural seepage from the ocean floor. The study further concluded how exactly tarballs form: Once in contact with water, oils decompose, and as they do, the lighter fractions evaporate. The remaining substance is the heavy asphalt-like material I see washed up on the beach. Small amounts of tarballs generally don’t pose a serious threat to public health or the environment. However, walk on a beach with tar and some tacky residue my end up stuck to the bottom of your feet or shoes. If beach tar makes contact with your skin, wash it off when you can, because it may cause an allergic reaction like a rash. State and federal policies don’t allocate governmental funds to clean up minimal tarballs, but the government will get involved if the quantity of tar threatens public safety or if taking action will mitigate environmental damage.

LJ-area grads make mark in college sports BY DAVE THOMAS | VILLAGE NEWS

A number of collegiate athletes with ties to the La Jolla area recently wrapped up their respective spring seasons. On the tennis courts, sophomore Greg Hirshman (La Jolla Country Day School) completed his sophomore season for Stanford University. Hirshman was one of six Stanford netters to receive Pac-10 AllAcademic awards. To be eligible for selection to the academic team, a student-athlete must have a minimum 3.0 overall grade-point average and be either a starter or significant contributor. Hirshman carries a 3.99 GPA and is double-majoring in economics and mathematics. On the softball diamond, Samantha Berenter (La Jolla Country Day School) was a member of the Indiana University (1039, 4-16 Big 10) squad. Berenter appeared in 35 games, starting 29 with all but one coming at third base. She went 2-for-2 with a double and a walk in her season debut against Cal Poly and hit her first career home run against UCLA. Senior Koree Blyleven (The

Junior rowers prepare for U.S. championships BY ANTHONY GENTILE | VILLAGE NEWS

A pair of junior rowers from the San Diego Rowing Club (SDRC) is moving from Mission Bay to the bigtime. Joe Thaxton and Jason Perone are currently cutting the waters at the USRowing Junior Men’s Sweep Development Camp, held June 22 to July 19 at Three Rivers Rowing Complex in Pittsburgh. “They are the next generation in a long line of San Diego Rowing Club athletes,” SDRC coach Art Sloate said. The invitation-only camp invited 36 athletes (31 rowers and five coxswains) born in 1992 or later. At the camp, boats will be formed for the USRowing Club National Championships held July 15 to 19 in Oak Ridge, Tenn., and one boat of eight will be selected to compete in the CanAmMex Regatta July 11 to 19 in Mexico City. “These two just have one season of experience rowing yet have been invited,” Sloate said. “That is quite an accomplishment.” Thaxton and Perone were invited to the camp based on performances in events such as the USRowing Southwest Junior Championship Regatta in May and their scores on rowing machines at the club. Their success is impressive considering they first picked up oars at SDRC last September

Ask The Lawyer Question:

SM

Is there any other way to avoid probate besides a living trust?

Yes, there are numerous ways to avoid probate, however it may not fit with your situation. It is important to get the proper legal advice to decide what will work for you, your assets and family. There may be tax consequences of transferring property, so please check this out before you do so.

Answer:

Thursday, July 30th noon and 6pm Saturday, August 1 noon to 1pm

If your income is more than $150,000, you might be paying more in income taxes than necessary

First, assets can be held in joint tenancy. This means that when one joint tenant dies, the other person becomes the owner of the property. You can own property jointly with another person who is or is not related to you. Next, if the asset, other than real estate located in California, is under $100,000, it can be collected by declaration. The procedure to collect a small estate may be used whether or not the person who died had a will or not. The heirs under state law may use the declaration procedure. Any property that passes to a surviving spouse or domestic partner does not have to go through the formal probate process. This list is not exhaustive, so please feel free to come in for a free consultation to determine if any of these procedures will work for you.

“It’s not all about your physical ability,” Thaxton said. “It’s more about your knowledge of the proper blade angling and technique.” Thaxton and Perone live in Point Loma and attend St. Augustine High School. Both converted to rowing from other sports — Thaxton swam competitively and Perone was a pitcher. “You’re always rowing and you can always learn new things,” Perone said. “It’s a lot more fun than most other sports.” For Thaxton, the sport is in his blood. He is one of a long line of rowers going back to his greatgrandfather Joe Jessop, a founder of the San Diego Crew Classic. “The Jessop family was part of the rowing club from the very beginning,” Sloate said. “There’s some genetics there.” Cathy Thaxton — Joe’s aunt — rowed for ZLAC, America’s oldest women’s rowing club, on Mission Bay. She is a member of the Stanford University Athletic Hall of Fame and was a fourtime Olympian beginning in 1976. And a number of his relatives have rowed at SDRC. Despite his family’s history of rowing, Thaxton said he doesn’t feel any extra pressure. “I use it as instigation for me,” Thaxton said. “If my aunt was an Olympic rower, I think I might have some potential to give it my all and make it as far as she did or better. It’s more like a stimulant to me.” Thaxton and Perone finished up their first junior rowing season at SDRC in June. During the season, junior rowers practice six days a week. Perone said the camp will help members of the rowing club next season. “It’s going to help us row a lot better because there are new coaches and we get more ideas and we can bring that here,” Perone said. SDRC has been in existence since 1888 and is currently located at El Carmel Point on Mission Bay. Sloate said the club’s junior program, with 100 members aged 13 to 18, is the biggest it has been in the history of the club — but that they are still looking for new talent. “We’re looking for athletes that are in the wrong sport. Maybe they’re playing volleyball or football or basketball, and they may have good size but they’re sitting on the bench and it’s really not their sport,” Sloate said. “What we’d like them to do is try something different, see if they like it.” Sloate said rowing is the ultimate team sport and requires teamwork and cohesion. “It’s definitely not a ‘me’ sport,” Sloate said. “We are raising the next generation of leaders. They understand putting personal ambitions aside for the greater good of the boat.” Thaxton and Perone understand that dynamic. Their grasp of the sport has allowed them to easily glide through the waters of Mission Bay and onto the national rowing scene. ■

Condo deposits returned amid buyer shortage BY SEBASTIAN RUIZ | VILLAGE NEWS

Developers of San Diego’s tallest mixed-use condominium high-rise, at Tenth Avenue and A Street downtown, have decided to cancel all escrows and return home deposits to some estimated 300 buyers because too few purchased homes to meet financing deadlines. Developers had to have 70 percent of Vantage Pointe’s condos sold to prospective buyers to meet the new guidelines secondary mortgage giant Fannie Mae (known formally as the Federal National Mortgage Association, or FNMA) implemented March 1. Buyers should have received their returned deposits by the first week of June. Developers needed to meet sales deadlines by mid-May. Buyers will either take the refunded deposit or have a chance to sign new pur-

Attendees were able to sample the delicious appetizers and experience the culinary expertise of Estancia Chef Jose Carrillo, who served up the delectable chicken and shrimp quesadillas. Estancia designated the Mustangs and Burros room to the chamber event. This area provides for beautiful scenery and comfortable ambiance within a tranquil environment.

ber of homes sold or under contract needed to purchase the loans from 51 percent to 70 percent on March 1. Developers had 43 percent of the condos sold or under contract, according to Lutz. Wells Fargo Home Mortgage financed a majority of the home loans, according to the project’s parent company, Pointe of View, and its president and chief operations officer Brian Stoddard. Pointe of View’s main offices are located in Alberta, Canada. Stoddard confirmed the return of deposits amounting to 5 percent of the purchase price. Selling prices for the mostly unfinished homes range from more than $200,000 to about $1.2 million. Asked whether he’s heard any complaints from any prospective buyers about the returned deposits, Stoddard said, “Those are all handled by the sales office in San Diego.” To satisfy requirements and move forward with financing, Fannie Mae and Pointe of View agreed to split sales requirements into three phases. Instead of requiring the sale of 70 percent of all units, developers must have sold or entered into an agreement with buyers for at least 70 percent of the units in each building. “Fannie Mae is committed to continuing to provide liquidity and market support in a manner that supports sustainable homeownership and helps stabilize communities and neighborhoods impacted by the housing and economic

downturn,” responded Amy Bonitatibus, Fannie Mae spokesperson, in an e-mail. “The conditional approval granted to Vantage Pointe shows our willingness to work with lenders and developers on projects that require additional consideration.

“In this case, we agreed to recognize each tower separately and approve financing for the individual towers if certain presale conditions are met.” Construction on the 679-unit complex started several years ago and has yet to be completed. ■
