to Arctic dwellers experience what few from their home have ever seen BY KENDRA HARTMANN | VILLAGE NEWS hen La Jolla Shores resident Eleanor Mosca got an email from Syla Pijamini that Syla and her sister were hoping to visit San Diego, Mosca was delighted. She hadn’t seen Syla for years, since she took a cruise to the Nunavut territory in 2007. Syla had worked in a hotel that took care of cruise passengers’ activities while on land, and, by chance, she was also the daughter of Abraham Pijamini, who was the guide for a dogsled trip Mosca had taken decades ago. Mosca replied she would be happy to host Syla and her sister in California. She was a bit surprised, however, when the emailed response she received was, “Okay, our plane arrives at 12:30 p.m.” “I didn’t know what day — if it was Syla (right) and Iga Pijamini grew up in the northernmost Inuit settlement of that day, or the next day, or the next Grise Fiord (photo by Kendra Hartmann). The hamlet lies 720 miles north of the Arcweek,” Mosca said, laughing. “Plus, I tic circle on Ellesmere Island.

San Diego Unified rescinds layoffs; 2012-13 school year back on track BY PATRICIA WALSH | VILLAGE NEWS The San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) has reached an agreement with the San Diego Education Association (SDEA) that puts the 2012-13 school year back on track by recalling pink slips for nearly 1,400 teachers, nurses and counselors — including 85 teachers and staff in the La Jolla and Mission Bay area schools. “Everybody’s happy that the teachers’ union is talking to the district again — that’s always a step in the right direction,” said Sharon Jones, a parent
involved in the La Jolla cluster of schools. “We’re very happy that it’s been resolved, but funding issues still remain. California’s got to figure out a better way to fund education.” Educators voted from June 24-26 on the tentative agreement that was forged between negotiators from the teachers’ union and the SDUSD. The results of the vote were tallied and released June 27. The terms of the agreement include: • Teachers will defer raises promised to them in previous negotiations. • Teachers will work five unpaid fur-
lough days. An additional 14 furlough days are possible if a November taxinitiative ballot measure fails. • A $25,000 retirement incentive will be offered to the first 300 SDEA members who are older than 55 and have more than 25 years of experience. Teachers are now expected to be recalled as early as the end of June. The SDEA elections committee reported that more than 4,500 members cast votes, of which 67 percent voted “yes” on the agreement and 33 percent voted “no.” In the Mission Bay Cluster, 32 teach-

Mt. Soledad Memorial Association COMMUNITYbriefs says ‘let there be light’
BY MARIKO LAMB | VILLAGE NEWS The Mt. Soledad Memorial Association is conducting a series of lighting tests at the veterans’ memorial atop Mount Soledad to determine whether or not illuminating parts of the site raises any major concerns. The tests that are currently under way are solely for the purposes of ironing out any kinks in the association’s plan to illuminate the memorial walls, walkways and flag on the federal government-owned property. Lighting tests for public vetting will be conducted in coming weeks once adjustments are made, say association representatives. “We have some things we have to adjust,” said Bob Phillips, Mt. Soledad Memorial Association representative. “What we’ve seen so far is beautiful, but there are things that we weren’t happy with. We don’t even think it’s anything the public would be concerned about. They were just nuances that we thought would get it right.” Memorial association representatives say lighting is primarily needed for the safety of visitors who wander among the memorials after the sun goes down and before the park closes at 10 p.m. Incidentally, illuminating the flag would also allow it to fly 24 hours a day and eliminate the need for individuals to raise and lower the flag each morning and night. “The easement is something that is going to be very significant for many reasons other than just the lighting,” said Phillips. “We’re going to have an
electronic information center and power for our events.” While the memorial’s representatives emphasize the easement and lighting is necessary, several residents at a June 25 meeting of La Jolla Parks and Beaches said the proposal would pollute an ideal stargazing location with unnecessary artificial light. “This is a citywide attraction,” said Fran Zimmerman. “GenerIlluminating the veterans’ ations of people have gone up to memorial flag atop Mt.

LJHS PTA honored for dedication The Ninth District PTA — the largest volunteer child-advocacy association in San Diego — recently honored La Jolla High School parents, teachers and staff with two awards for their dedicated efforts and milestone achievements at the high school. One award was given for the successful implementation of the Life 101 program — a program developed by LJHS parent and PTA member Linda Rutgard that brings speakers to the school to talk to seniors about the challenges they will undoubtedly face in the real world. The discussions typically involve practical lessons for graduating seniors, such as money management, renting an apartment and staying healthy. The LJHS PTA was also recognized for having the highest number of members in the San Diego Unified School District, with more than 700 parents, teachers and staff involved in the association.
“That’s what we’re proudest of,” said Dana Shelburne, LJHS principal. “Each of our PTA volunteers — parents, teachers and staff — should be very proud that they have brought this level of involvement to La Jolla High School.”

Star Wars fans
channel ‘TheforForce’ a good cause
BY MARIKO LAMB | VILLAGE NEWS Star Wars fans will march in full force to San Diego for the mothership of all comic book, sci-fi and pop culture conventions on July 11. The inaugural Course of the Force relay will take hundreds of lightsaber-wielding participants donned in their best Star Warsthemed costumes on an epic journey from Santa Monica to San Diego for the 43rd annual Comic-Con International — the largest comic book and pop culture event in the nation. The Olympic torch-style relay run will begin at the Santa Monica Pier on July 7 and end at Balboa Theatre, just in time for Comic-Con’s preview night on July 11. During the five-day relay, participants will run in brief quarter-mile segments, handing off the official Hasbro Ultimate FX Course of the Force lightsaber en route as each runner begins his or her leg of the journey along Southern California’s coastline. Star Wars-themed “Conival” parties will entertain participants and specta-

A 25-foot-long replica of Jabba the Hutt’s sail barge from “Return of the Jedi” will even serve as the relay’s lead vehicle, paving the way for runners on the course and serving as host Chris Hardwick’s anchor desk from which to announce his commentary of the relay. Not only does the race build momentum to participants’ arrival at the mecca for sci-fi and comic book gurus, but Course of the Force organizers — including Lucasfilm Ltd., Nerdist Industries and Octagon — also aim to make a difference by raising funds for the local Make-A-Wish Foundation. “We knew that if we were going to do this event, we had to do it for the right reasons,” said Octagon spokesperson Adam Harris. “That’s where we got involved with Make-A-Wish Foundation of Southern California to come up with this concept — to bring awareness
to them, raise some money for them, get the kids involved and make some wishes come true with this event.” The initial concept for Course of the Force quite literally conked Nerdist Industries’ CEO Peter Levin in the head one day late last year. “His son happened to be playing with a lightsaber. One thing led to another, and his son hit him in the head, which got him thinking about the idea,” said Harris of the concept’s humble beginnings. “It was just an idea from him playing around with his kid, but it somehow evolved into this really cool, really big event.” Once internationally renowned entertainment giant Lucasfilm Ltd. got involved, the event started to take shape. “It just kind of snowballed. Before you knew it, it was the real deal,” Harris said. “It came together to really serve as a natural lead up to San Diego Comic-Con, which has become such a huge attraction, but doesn’t have any kind of major event that serves as a lead

We’re working closely with California Highway Patrol in all of the cities to ensure that everything goes on safely. We will have police escorts and we’re going to be working with traffic so we minimize disruption,” he said. “It’s not quite like a marathon. We don’t want to cause a logjam with people hanging out in the streets.”
The Force is expected to arrive at Crystal Pier at about 5:30 p.m. on July 10 and will take off again at 9 a.m. on July 11. Spectators are invited to greet the runners as they arrive at the pier, dress in Star Wars garb, and take advantage of photo opportunities with celebrity runners and Jabba the Hutt’s sail barge. “If you happen to go out for a morning stroll at the pier, don’t be alarmed if you see storm troopers and Darth Vaders,” warned Harris.

Lifeguard Sgt. Eric Care was nearby and responded to the call from dispatch, along with several other lifeguards. “The crossing over the cobblestones was technical but the clearance of the [Toyota] Tundra made it possible. The former Expedition U-31 most likely would have become stuck,” said Care of the lifeguards’ new vehicles, donated to the city by Toyota. Once lifeguards arrived on the scene, a citizen was already giving competent CPR, said Care. Lifeguards then used an automated external defibrillator immediately and chest compressions were administered intermittently for 10 minutes. After the third shock, the man was revived and was transferred to a nearby hospital. “The call couldn’t have gone much better, in my opinion,” said Care. “Effective CPR took place immediately and advanced care was en route while the patient was revived. As soon as the transport was needed, we had three medics at the patient and a helicopter landing.”

Shark sighting at La Jolla Shores closes beach for day La Jolla Shores beaches — from the Marine Room to Scripps Pier — were closed after lifeguards spotted a 12- to 15-foot great white shark about 50 yards off La Jolla Shores around 3 p.m. on July 2. Nearby beaches — including Black’s Beach, La Jolla Cove and the beach at Scripps Institution of Oceanography — were put under an advisory warning immediately after the sighting. Following the sighting, lifeguards scoured the waters by boat and helicopter for several hours, but did not locate the shark. At press time, there were no further sightings of the shark, and all of La Jolla Shores’ beaches were reopened, just in time for the Fourth of July holiday. Lifeguards urge continued caution to beachgoers in the area. — Mariko Lamb
La Jolla Shores looked oddly empty for a summer evening on July 2 after lifeguards cleared the waters from the Marine Room to Scripps Pier after an estimated 12- to 15-foot great white shark was spotted within 50 feet of shore. Lifeguards had to chase down surfers, above, and tell them that the entire beach was closed until dark after the shark sighting.

SCHOOLS CONTINUED FROM Page 1
San Diego’s students staying in school more than other urban areas in the state BY DAVE SCHWAB | VILLAGE NEWS The news on high school dropout rates for 2011-12 in La Jolla and throughout San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) almost couldn’t be better as three charter schools — High Tech High, High Tech High Media Arts and Preuss at UCSD — all achieved a zeropercent dropout rate. A recently released California Department of Education report showed San Diego County students and those statewide are increasingly earning diplomas within four years — and fewer of them are dropping out. SDUSD, at 5.9 percent — down from 8.4 percent a year earlier — had the lowest dropout rate among the state’s large, urban school districts. The next lowest district, San Francisco Unified, was at 10.4 percent. The highest rate, 27 percent, was Oakland Unified. Overall, SDUSD’s 83.7 percent graduation rate exceeded the state average by 8.5 points. San Diego County’s graduation rate came

in at 77.5 percent, based on the 40,451 students who began as freshmen in 2007. That was up from 75.2 percent in the prior year and better than the statewide rate of 76.3 percent. “For parents, this means that they can be confident that their child is receiving, in our district, as good an education as they can get anywhere in California,” said John Lee Evans, San Diego School Board of Education president. “Our schools are innovative. Our schools are creative. Our schools are accountable. And our schools fit into their communities.” The state’s graduation target is 90 percent, a difficult goal to attain, educators admit, given persistent state funding cuts. SDUSD, the state’s second-largest school district, fell short of that 90-percent mark. But its graduation rate improved from 80.9 percent to 83.7 percent — difficult, given the demographics of big-city school districts containing large populations of low-income students and students whose first language is not English.
and the San Diego Food Bank, among others. Among the La Jolla graduates from the National Charity League were Mackenzie Allen, Casey Betts, Darby Broekema, Dani Carroll, Caroline Cleavinger, Tory Evans, Franxesca Fuene de Colombi, Kailey Fudge, Shauna Jellison, Megan Micheletti, Marissa Newlee, Isabelle Poulin, Dinah Robbins, Gabriella Sanderson,
SDUSD officials credit, in part, aggressive efforts — knocking on doors, calling relatives — to track down truant students for improving graduation rates. The district also claims its use of hightech teaching aids, like Netbooks, iPads and computerized smart boards, are paying dividends in engaging students, persuading more of them to stay in school. The district is also heavily invested in programs promoting culinary arts, construction and auto technology, serving job skill-oriented students. The latest dropout-graduation figures for Preuss at UCSD, High Tech High and High Tech High Media Arts were encouraging, validating the core curriculums and educational philosophies of the three charter schools. The Preuss School, jointly chartered by the SDUSD and UC San Diego, opened in 1999 in portable buildings on UCSD’s Thurgood Marshall campus with 150 students in grades 6–8. Begun by a group of UCSD

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Minimize government? Maximize chaotic clutter
Downsizing is a common dilemma
There is a delicious irony in your article “Civic report: La Jolla Shores Association, June 13” (June 21, Page 4). As the “minimize government” chorus increases in volume nationwide (with many loud voices in La Jolla), the situation in the Shores provides a perfect example of what happens when government is minimized: people do whatever they please. Loud ice-cream trucks playing brain-worm music all day? Pushcart operators traversing the park? Proliferation of scuba and kayak companies transforming what was once a peaceful residential area? Welcome to the world of untrammeled free enterprise! And then there are the actions of individuals and groups: overnight camping, cars blocking the street, rowdy behavior, litter. Personal liberty in action! If government is the problem, how can it be that the problems in the Shores are mushrooming out of control? Minimize government? Be careful what you wish for — you just might get it. It appears that the Shores already has. David Rearwin La Jolla
Dear Ms. Josefowitz: I really enjoyed reading your column on downsizing (“Downsizing — we all gotta do it,” June 21, Page 6), and you nailed it, as you do other columns — many thanks. I copied your article for my sister. Her kids think it’s time for her and her husband to downsize and move from Rancho Bernardo to Orange County to be closer to them. I brought the article to the Old Globe and let her read it in quiet before the show. She loved it too. She and her German husband, the highly organized one, have been going through everything and pretty much taking your advice. On the other hand, I keep asking God to keep me alive until I can at least clear the clutter in one room and leave a note: “This is really me.” “Now all you have to do is decide to do it,” you wrote. That will be my mantra — but we know talk is cheap, right? A former student of mine made a poster for our classroom: “Procrastination is the thief of time.” Keep on writing. You’re an inspiration.

Ask The Lawyer Question:
-Can you explain powers of attorney?
There are two types of powers of attorney, one for healthcare and one for asset management. They can both be durable which means that if the person who gave the power becomes incapable of handling their own affairs, then the agent can act for the benefit of and on behalf of that person. An attorney drafts a Power of Attorney that includes safeguards for the principal and restrictions on the agent.
Virginia Weber Laskowitz
The agent under a Healthcare Power of Attorney, also known as a living will, can be authorized to Estate Attorney instruct doctors to terminate life prolonging procedures, to hire and fire doctors, and to hire personal attendants for home care. The agent will also be able to arrange for burial or cremation. An agent under an Asset Power of Attorney can manage the principal's financial affairs during incapacity. The powers granted are usually quite broad so selecting a trustworthy person to act for you is important. A Power of Attorney can be written so that the power becomes effective only when the principal becomes incapable, as certified by two (2) doctors. Accordingly, the power can be written now for future use. The Power of Attorney is an important document, which should be discussed with your attorney prior to signing it. Its value in avoiding expensive, court-supervised conservatorships is substantial.

Doing it How to deal with emotional abuse Better when enough is finally enough By Natasha Josefowitz, Ph.D. This is for all my readers who live with bullies. Not the kind in the schoolyard who beat up on littler kids, but the one who sleeps in your bed and sits at your breakfast table and takes you to the movies. In other words, I’m talking about loved ones. Not the stereotype of the hulking man with beer belly, swear words and a quick hand, but the gentle doctor, the charming lawyer, the suave CEO. One thinks of bullies as mostly male, but women can also hit, scream and use abusive language to control their families. So, too, can parents with children and adult children with aging parents. It can be “Don’t get daddy angry,” as well as “Don’t upset mother.” I have seen it too often and heard about it too frequently to dismiss the phenomenon of the seemingly decent person who turns into a bully in the privacy of the home. This kind of bully doesn’t hit, but the emotional abuse is just as damaging because it is so relentless and insidious. Often the victim is not even aware of being emotionally harassed. The target is told that she’s incompetent or that he did this stupid thing again, that what he says is ridiculous or all her attempts to please, to placate, to endear herself to the angry and critical tormenter fail dismally. People in this situation feel there is something wrong inside themselves; they must be inept and deficient in some way, or why would someone who loves them always diminish them and make them feel irrelevant?

High Tech High (HTH) operates 11 schools — two elementary, four middle and five high schools — countywide. Begun in 2000 as a single charter high school launched by a coalition of San
attracting attention and the pain that comes with it. If victims threaten to leave, the bully becomes contrite, promising not to get angry or out of control, and victims believe and stay, only to face abuse again a few days, weeks, or months later. The cycle repeats itself endlessly, making the object of the abuse feel crazy. Often friends don’t know — that sweet man, an abuser, an emotional batterer? But the bully’s underlings at work often do know about the hot temper and either quit or also endure psychosomatic symptoms from coping with this irrational behavior. The unpredictability of moods reinforces the fear of never knowing what to expect. What to do? It is not easy, especial-
ly for someone not used to defending oneself, but, at some point, you have to fight against being demeaned, diminished, made to feel stupid or being bullied in any way. No one can live healthily without respect. The next time you are shouted at, calmly say, “I will not be yelled at. When you talk to me decently, I will listen,” and leave the room. The next time you are bullied, say, “I don’t need to hear this,” and leave the room. The next time you are irrationally criticized, say, “That’s your opinion. I don’t agree with you and don’t wish to continue arguing about it,” and leave the room. Finally, you may wish to threaten ending the relationship unless your loved one agrees to see a health professional to help manage the anger. All this is not foolproof. It may work, and I have seen success, but it can also backfire, creating more anger and even bodily harm or an eventual split. No one needs to subject oneself to abuse — not from a spouse, parents, children, boss or anyone else. It is emotionally draining and leads to the depletion of self-esteem, as well as mental and physical health. There is little incentive for the bully to change the manipulative behaviors if it works — so the strategy is to not succumb to it, but to resist it. The victim has to change before the abuser can. It is only when the bullies have no willing victim that they have a reason to control mean outbursts and behaviors. — Natasha Josefowitz taught the first course in the U.S. on women in management and is the author of 19 books.

Diego business leaders and educators, HTH has evolved into an integrated network of schools spanning grades K-12, housing a comprehensive teacher certification program and a new, innovative Graduate School of Education. High Tech High Media Arts serves about 400 students in grades 9-12 at HTH Village in Point Loma. Founded in fall 2005, the school implements all HTH design principles and features a strong foundation in liberal arts and sciences. San Diego Unified also showed gains in ethnic groups that have been a focus of attendance-improvement efforts. For
Hispanic students, a nearly 4-percent increase was registered over 2009-10. The 75.8 percent topped the statewide average of 70.4. For African-American students, the year-over-year increase is 4.4 percent, with the 80.3 graduation rate 17.4 percent higher than the statewide average. “This means that hundreds of young adults beat the odds and became high school graduates last year,” said superintendent Bill Kowba. “This district, our Board of Education and every staff member have made graduation a top priority.”
bully must know something they don’t, and so they flail about unhappily. They become depressed, have headaches, backaches, or stomach problems and see no way out. When the victim finally has had enough and tells the person not to yell, not to scream at the children, the intimidator shouts even more, reducing the victim to tears or a knotted stomach. Everyone tiptoes around the oppressor, whispering and trying to avoid

CONTINUED FROM Page 1 The chaos, however, was tempered by what Mosca knew well of the Inuit — that obstacles that seem enormous are never too big to overcome. “No matter what happens — no matter how bad it seems — the Inuit always laugh at it,” she said. “Laughing takes less energy than worrying or getting angry, and they need energy living up there.” Another Inuit habit Mosca had discovered during her many travels to the Arctic was that nothing is ever planned ahead — proof of which she was given when the sisters decided on an impromptu trip to San Diego. “We were in Ottawa [for vacation], and it was raining and I decided I didn’t want to spend time in the rain,” Syla said, sitting in Mosca’s sundrenched kitchen. “So I told Iga I had a friend in San Diego, and we jumped on a plane.” While Mosca was certainly surprised to have two last-minute guests, she was more surprised that she would be entertaining two Inuit in San Diego at all. “I think they might be the only Inuit to ever come to San Diego,” Mosca said. That claim may or may not be true, but one thing is for sure: not one of the 125 inhabitants of Syla and Iga’s hometown of Grise Fiord on Ellesmere Island has been to America’s Finest City. At 76 degrees 24 minutes north — 720 miles north of the Arctic Circle — Grise Fiord is the northernmost Inuit settlement. Indeed, its location and climate are belied in its Inuktitut name: Aujuittuq, meaning “the
place that never thaws.” For 10 months out of the year, the water surrounding the hamlet is frozen through, allowing for travel on a sea ice highway by snowmobile and dogsled. Temperatures peak in July, usually around 40 degrees Fahrenheit — though they can sometimes reach 50 F in the 24-hour sun. “Remote” doesn’t quite begin to describe Grise Fiord. Two cargo planes visit the village every week, bringing much-needed goods to the residents — “and that’s only in good weather,” Iga said. Not much goes in or out, making life there relatively
“No matter what happens — no matter how bad it seems — the Inuit always laugh at it. Laughing takes less energy than worrying or getting angry, and they need energy living up there.” ELEANOR MOSCA expensive for the few that have chosen to remain. Many Inuit, once they graduate from high school, move away, Iga said. “They don’t want to come back,” she said. “There’s nothing for them there, and there aren’t many activities. Everything is limited.” Isolation and a high cost of living are taking a toll on the population, especially since the town rarely welcomes newcomers. When Mosca visited in 1985, she witnessed a very extraordinary phenomenon indeed — the first birth in five years. “The Inuit have notoriously low birth rates,” Mosca said.
Still, Iga countered, Grise Fiord is her home, and there’s something to be said for the peace and quiet of her hamlet at the edge of the sea, where she teaches Inuktitut, the Inuit language that children speak exclusively until they go to school and start to learn English. Syla, meanwhile, moved to Iqaluit on Baffin Island some years ago. She can make a good living there, working for the Nunavut government as an administrative coordinator for the Department of Finance. The difference between their daily lifestyle and that of ours in Southern California is palpable — making for some potentially serious culture shock. For the sisters, however, what has them most in awe is the attire we don in San Diego. “Most people here wear almost nothing,” Syla said. “I’m not used to not putting my jacket on when I go outside.” So what sights do they plan to take in during their vacation? The things that La Jolla can most easily offer: sun, sand and sea, especially a sea that one can actually swim in. “I’ve been going to the beach twice a day,” Syla said. “And I want to try paragliding.” There’s one thing that has eluded them so far, however. With persistent daylight carrying on for three months, the sisters were anxious to see the sun do something they don’t normally see this time of year: rise and set. June gloom has so far prevented them from getting a good view of the sun melting into the Pacific, but they’re not worried. Maybe the weather will change, maybe it won’t. Either way, they won’t be upset. After all, they’re Inuit; they’ll laugh it off.
Wishing you a safe and happy

CONTINUED FROM Page 1 diverse activities from conversational French to Jazzercise sessions to bridge classes. The facility includes several activity rooms, a commercial-size kitchen with catering capability and a fully equipped computer training room. Florence Riford donated the building to San Diego in the 1970s, providing endowment funds to support its operations, which today have largely been exhausted paying for operating expenses. “We need an endowment to help sustain this building into perpetuity,” said Rasmussen, noting that a number of improvements — an ADA-compliant front-entrance ramp, new doors, bench and tile work, courtyard and classroom upgrades, as well as a gourmet kitchen and great-room improvements — are under way. LJCC still needs $250,000 to complete its long-term renovation project, which thus far has been dependent on gifts and grants. The new disabled ramp under construction at the front entrance will be done by early September, said architect Don Hodges, an LJCC board member, and other enhancements — like improved landscaping on the south side of the building reaching around to the front, to include an Eagle Scout project by Matthew Alessio — are planned. Hodges said the center’s doors are always open, though entry is currently at the rear of the building due to ongoing construction in front. “The public is invited,” he said. “We’re open to anyone who wants to
participate. Take a look at the website. Come in during the remodel.” La Jolla Community Center is also available to host small- and largegroup community meetings in its great room or smaller conference rooms with food catering available from the kitchen, which also offers cooking classes. The center, Rasmussen said, depends on membership and programming revenue to cover operating expenses, and it needs 400 to 600 active members and well-attended programs and classes in order to thrive. Making ends meet, he said, is “a constant battle.” Government grants are improving the facility’s appearance and upgrading services, like the addition of a new large classroom being built with a grant from Las Patronas. “We’ve made the building ADAcompliant with a federal [Community Development Block Grant] from [District 1 City Councilwoman] Sherri Lightner’s office,” Rasmussen said. Yansick said the message is getting out that La Jolla Community Center is something different — and more — than what it’s been in the past. “The name change and our new mission statement has brought a lot of recognition,” she said. “The community is stepping up and reaching out to us. It’s given us an opportunity to clarify who we are and let people know we’re the only adult community center in [ZIP code] 92037. We want to say to the public, this is your community center — help us.” For more information or to volunteer call (858) 459-0831, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.ljcommunitycenter.org.

Starry, starry nights
with Vincent Andrunas About 330 bootleg booze dealers and their molls gathered at the Sheraton Hotel and Marina Saturday night for a big shindig. Many wore their most stylish 1920s attire, including lots of hats and headpieces, long strands of pearls, and feather boas. With all the violin cases the guys carried, you’d think you were at a musicians’ convention, though the cases’ contents were never displayed. Some particularly intimidating guys openly toted Tommy guns, but fortunately, no fights involving shooting broke out — everybody was having too good a time to muss it up with hot lead. Even the lookout was forgiving — entering guests were asked to give the “password,” but if they didn’t remember to growl “Bugsy sent me,” almost anything else would do. After all, who would dare try to crash a party full of these tough guys? The occasion was the Bootleggers’ Ball, brainchild of Stephanie Dathe and Gail Ives, co-chairs of the 2012 fundraising gala for Meals-on-Wheels of Greater San Diego (MoW). They picked a fun theme, and guests really got into it, eager to support this venerable organization, which has served the area for 52 years. With more than 2,200 volunteers, MoW annually delivers more than 350,000 meals. But it’s not just the food that provides nourishment — for many seniors, the knock on the door, the volunteer’s cheery “It’s Meals-on-Wheels” and the welcome human contact are as important to their emotional well-being as the food is to their physical health. The party began with a two-hour reception featuring cocktails and a huge “silent” (though actually rather noisy) auction. A major attraction of MoW galas is the annual “Appetizer Challenge.” Eleven highly talented area chefs participated this year, each striving to outdo the others with a specially created hors d’oeuvre. They were dispensed from individual chef’s stations around the room’s perimeter, and knowledgeable partygoers knew they shouldn’t miss trying them all. They voted for their favorites with tokens (guests got three at check-in; they could buy more at three for $5). Everything was wonderful, and some dishes incorporated such thematic ingredients as Smoking

Gun Potatoes and Bootlegger’s Lager. It was tough to choose among such standouts as (to name just a few) Tyler Thrasher’s blackened lamb belly with pickled heirloom watermelon, Rich Huarte’s cognac-macerated prune stuffed with foie gras and wrapped with bacon, and Michael Jacobs’ stunning bayou alligator with andouille sausage served with a bourbon slushee (a personal favorite). But no one could argue with the eventual winner, Bernard Guillas’ Hokto-Kinoko organic king oyster mushroom bisque with truffle gnocchi, Brandt Farm beef bacon, and 20-yearold Ambrosante foam. With this, the Marine Room’s executive chef took home the “Chefy Award” trophy. When the reception was about over, sirens suddenly sounded loudly. Uniformed cops (of the Keystone variety) announced this was a “raid,” and all the “detainees” were herded into the ballroom. Once seated inside, they noticed a barred cell onstage containing several well-known prisoners. Emcee Whitney Southwick announced that dinner would not be served until the “hoosegow” was empty, which would require the audience to post bail of $2,000 for each. The first was Kristi “Trixie” Pieper, “arrested for possession of liquor, with a flask only half full.” As she continued sipping from her flask, more than $2,000 in donations was quickly pledged. The other prisoners, including the event co-chairs and MoW president and CEO Debbie Case, were similarly bailed. The event honored well-known La Jollans Pat and Bob Whalen for their lifetime philanthropic efforts involving many worthy causes, including 30 years of commitment to MoW. The WD40 Company was the evening’s corporate honoree, having given more than $100,000 to MoW over the years, and the San Diego County Ford Dealers, for the second consecutive year, presented a check for more than $30,000 to fuel

MoW’s delivery vans. Despite the copious amounts of appetizers that were consumed, most guests enjoyed the sit-down dinner of tournedos of beef and garlic parsley shrimp. Bill Menish sold 10 items in a live auc-
tion, and later raised about $30,000 in support pledges. Dessert was served, and a DJ played for dancing. Nicest touch: At each seat was an artistic card, blank inside. Guests were invited to write something to a senior,
and drop the card into a house-shaped mailbox on stage. The cards will accompany meals delivered to MoW clients, for whom reading the cards will provide another kind of much-needed nourishment.
