Mormon temple to shine like new BY JENNA FRAZIER | VILLAGE NEWS As many La Jolla residents may have noticed, one of the area’s most prominent landmarks on the east side of I-5 is undergoing some changes. The snow-white, ethereal-looking San Diego temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints (LDS) has been surrounded by scaffolding for the last five months to facilitate an intricate refurbishing project that should leave the site gleaming like never before. A popular tourist attraction and visitor site, the 72,000-square-foot temple was dedicated on April 30, 1993 as the 45th temple erected by the Latter-day Saints worldwide. More than 700,000 visitors have toured its scenic grounds since. Multiple weddings and baptisms are held at the temple each week. After so much traffic, church officials have decided the building could use a spruce-up. Renovations include cleaning the exterior, repair of the roof and towers, and re-caulking seams on the exterior white aggregate stone and stucco. The traditional golden Angel Maroni, which is featured in most LDS temples, crowns the east spire and will be removed for cleaning and refinishing. Elder L. Whitney Clayton of the church’s First Quorum of the Seventy said in a press statement that the scaffolding was necessary across the entire structure “to allow workmen to get close enough to work on various projects.” Clayton supervises the church’s California programs. “We are aware that many people in the San SEE TEMPLE, Page 2

Surfboards to line beaches in support of cancer survivors and research BY JENNA FRAZIER | VILLAGE NEWS La Jolla’s pristine shoreline will swell with support for cancer patients and survivors on Sunday, July 11 as part of the fourth annual Survivor Beach event. From 8 to 11 a.m., surfers, cancer survivors and other advocates will line up their surfboards nose-to-tail starting at Scripps Pier. The line will extend along La Jolla Shores to raise awareness for research and recognize those whose lives have been affected by the disease. This year’s event, sponsored by the biotechnology firm Genentech, will attempt to secure a world record for the longest line of surfboards. At the 2009 Survivor Beach, nearly 250 people formed a 1,133-foot line, nearly the length of four football fields. “We do not know of any other group that has attempted the longest line of surfboards,” said Jade Griffin, UCSD marketing and communications manager. “Each year, we try to beat our record from the year prior.” Major advancements in research and treatments have been made as a result of the attention attracted by the event, said Dennis Carson, an MD and director of the Moores UCSD Cancer Center. “Like links in a chain, the Survivor Beach surfboard line symbolizes how cancer and the quest for a cure connects us all,” he said. “We are making scientific breakthroughs each day to bring us closer to a cure for our patients. We are so proud of the strides we’ve made in this quest and of this community’s support for our work.” Robin Rond, co-chair for the 2010 event, urged the public to participate. “Every year we are amazed and gratified by the numbers of supporters who come out with their longboards and want to participate

Diego area love this beautiful structure and this maintenance project will allow it to continue to be a landmark for years to come,” Clayton said. Allen Haynie, who manages regional public affairs and who presides over the Escondido South Stake — which is comparable to a parish — said only members with certificates of good behavior may enter the temple to witness the variety of ordinances, or rites to benefit individuals and their ancestors, performed Tuesdays through Saturdays. However, the public is permitted to tour the exterior grounds. Services are held not at the temple but at chapels, a number of which are
scattered throughout the area, and are open to members of the public who wish to attend. Currently, 133 temples operate worldwide, according to the LDS website, www.lds.org. Each LDS temple is constructed in a different style, usually one that is consistent with the surrounding culture and architecture, Haynie said. The San Diego temple features a two-spire design with four smaller spires at the base of each. The building has four ordinance rooms and eight sealing rooms, which are used to perform marriage ceremonies. “One of the doctrines central to LDS theology is that the family relationship is external,” Haynie said. “When we speak of marriage, the term we use is ‘sealed,’ not married. The intention is to allow the husband and wife to enter a covenant

and maintain a relationship that is beyond this life.” Inside the San Diego temple, a lush garden nestles within a star-shaped atrium connecting two towers, and a celestial room houses towering art glass, suspended light fixtures, and a grand staircase to the upper-level balcony. These features, Haynie said, serve a decorative rather than functional purpose. While the renovations are under way, programs and events will continue as usual. Wedding parties can have their photographs interposed onto digital images of the temple since the scaffolding interferes with traditional photos. Haynie estimated the renovations would be complete no later than mid-August, and added that some areas have already been finished and
the scaffolding removed. The San Diego temple serves all of San Diego County in addition to Temecula and areas of Mexico, Haynie said. To learn more about LDS history and culture, Haynie recommends the San Diego Mormon Battalion, a historical site located in Old Town that offers free daily tours. The site offers a “top of the line” experience chronicling several hundred LDS members who were driven out of Illinois and who formed a voluntary unit to help fight during the Mexican-American War in the 1840s, he said.

NEWS ‘Smart cars’ visit UCSD with futuristic glimpse BY JENNA FRAZIER | VILLAGE NEWS Cars that can talk, think, detect obstacles and brain activity and even drive themselves provided a glimpse of the future at a June 24 exposition at The University of California, San Diego’s (UCSD) Warren Mall as engineers and automobile manufacturers presented vehicles with innovative, autonomous features as part of a research challenge. “Lots of accidents could be prevented with driver-assistance systems,” said Ganymed Stanek, a systems engineer at Stanford University who previously worked for Volkswagen as an intern. “People falling asleep, swerving into other lanes, or getting distracted and not slowing down fast enough can all be avoided with features produced by this technology.” While Stanek said fully autonomous cars are still in the more distant future, many important features are currently being integrated into high-end vehicles. “Top-of-the-line cars today have lanedeparture warnings, sensors for blind spots and automatic brake features

Children under age 16, as well as the disabled and elderly people who are no longer able to drive will also enjoy new freedoms, Stanek added. “These developments have the potential to give those demographics a lot of increased mobility,” he said.
At the exposition, Stanek demonstrated a 2006 Volkswagen Passat that was programmed to park itself when dropped off at a parking structure, which he compared to a valet service. “Many cars, especially in Germany, already a have a self-parallel-parking feature,” Stanek said. “This is different because the driver can get out at the entrance of a structure and press a button, then the car will use a map of the SEE CARS, Page 6

The La Jolla New Generations Rotary Club uses a fresh approach to lure younger set BY DEBBIE HATCH | VILLAGE NEWS Red Badgers is the term the Rotary Club uses to identify its new members. The La Jolla New Generations Rotary Club hopes to spread word of its fresher approach to the Rotarian philosophy and grow its current membership from its current 40 to a goal of 100. “It’s a full Rotary Club like any other,” said Matt Sanford, public relations chair for the club. Recent Red Badgers include professionals from military personnel to local entrepreneurs. The club, chartered in 2006, boasts an average age of 32 members annually, said Sanford. Fellowship, meetings and fundraisers are geared toward a younger crowd. The group just completed a successful event called “Bowling for Water.” “The funds raised from that project will go toward funding a clean-water project in the Sudan,” said Sanford. While most Rotary Clubs hold meetings in the mornings, the New Generation Club holds its weekly meetings at the La Jolla Marriott from 5:30 p.m. to 7 on Wednesdays. The first 30 minutes are spent talking with other members and enjoying a happy hour. Sanford encourages anyone interested to stop by one of the meetings and see what Rotary has to offer. As Sanford works for the San Diego North Chamber of Commerce, he emphasizes that professionals in the La Jolla area and beyond are welcome. Social-media networking helps the

club keep communications flowing. The club has a Facebook page used for updates, meeting notices and sharing pictures. “We are about to end our fiscal year and introduce a new president,” said Sanford. Kourtney Kennedy is the current president whose term will be complete at the end of June. Her year as president will culminate in a trip to Montreal for Rotary International’s annual meeting, where delegates from the United Nations and heads of state will attend, said Kennedy. “We are a small cog in a huge wheel, but each of us makes a difference,” said Kennedy. A former member of the Golden Triangle Rotary Club, Kennedy joined the New Generations Rotary simply because it fit
her schedule better. She was able to attend meetings at night, allowing her to remain involved at a level that satisfied her. “We are the first New Generations Rotary Club,” said Kennedy. The New Generations Rotary Club does not sing or pray at meetings, practices that disguish it from a more traditional Rotary Club. Kennedy said club members want anyone to feel welcome to participate in the service organization, and club members hope to boost membership sans politics and religion. The concept of fellowship, however, is still strong within the club. “We have happy hours and we do things above and beyond the actual club,” SEE ROTARY, Page 6

Advisory group votes to extend water restrictions BY JENNA FRAZIER | VILLAGE NEWS A citywide ordinance limiting individual water use for landscaping irrigation and other purposes was intended to endure only as long as drought conditions persevere, but officials are thinking about making the regulations permanent. A divided La Jolla Community Planning Association (LJCPA) voted 7-5-2 to approve a motion that would make the San Diego city water ordinance regulations enforceable at all times, not only during droughts. The motion also asked the city to control growth in a time of dwindling water resources, to develop new sources of water supply, to expand the pipe distribution system and to convert public areas to drought-tolerant landscaping. La Jolla residents and board members acknowledged a need to conserve in a city that imports 85 to 90 percent of its water supply. However, many expressed concerns that homes with extensive landscaping would suffer and that the regulations would not solve the larger issue because surrounding cities would not have to comply. Some even said the restrictions would deter large businesses from investing in the area. “The idea is to take the condition we have now and make that mandatory throughout the city,” LJCPA President Joe LaCava said. “That’s obviously painful for a lot of us. I know I have a lot of grass in my yard. But droughts are becoming more and more frequent, and it’s time for us to start raising the bar on some of these issues.”
The city declared San Diego in a Drought Response Level Two in June 2009 due to ongoing drought in the Colorado River basin and reduced snow pack and runoff in Northern California, plus court-ordered pumping restrictions and decreased water delivery from wholesalers, according to the city’s website. The City Council then voted to implement regulations that would restrict landscape irrigation to no more than 10 minutes per day and three days per week for all consumers. “I don’t find the current regulations onerous, and I don’t have any unique watering needs. But I certainly have a landscaped yard,” board member Jim Fitzgerald said. “To not make this ordinance permanent will only ensure that it will be re-examined and re-approved year after year. This way, it forces people to share and sacrifice.” Board member Laura DuCharme Conboy agreed that making the regulations permanent would require individuals to be more accountable about how they consume resources. “I’m in favor of this because I think that while it’s a small step, it’s also addressing individual responsibilities,” she said. “This ordinance brings the issue to our attention as homeowners and water users, and reminds us that we need to conserve our resources.” Other board members said the city should focus more on increasing the water supply rather than limiting consumption. “We’re certainly in a drought, but we also have a growing population,” board member David Little said. “We can’t keep adding residents who will
take up the water supply and eventually cause it to fail.” Board member Orrin Gabsch said that the ordinance would result in a team of “water police.” “I think what we really need is to increase the water supply,” Gabsch said. “I would like to see that there’s a sufficient supply of water so that if we want to have a grass lawn, we can have that.” An audience member suggested that the city could position itself in a prisoner’s dilemma by cutting short its own resources without compliance from other municipalities — in short, taking on the burden of decreased water access without assurance that its efforts will affect the overall supply. “If we do this, it puts other cities at an advantage because they don’t have to conserve,” she said. “It also makes this area less desirable for large businesses, and the city will have very little incentive to look for alternate resources.” For now, an end to the Drought Response Level 2 has not been solidified, said Erin Demorest, an aide for District 1 City Councilwoman Sherri Lightner. “There is no expiration date on the current Level 2 drought restrictions,” Demorest said. “The City Council would have to take a vote to make any change.” Demorest added that Lightner has requested that District 6 Councilwoman Donna Frye, who suggested that the ordinance become permanent, seek input from the communit y and “additional stakeholders” such as city schools, architects, golf courses and the Parks and Recreation Department.
DIVORCE THE BETTER WAY
Current Level 2 drought alert restrictions: • Residents may use water landscaping no more than three times per week • From June 1 to Oct. 31, residents must water before 10 a.m. or after 6 p.m. and for no longer than 10 minutes if using sprinkler systems • From Nov. 1 to May 31, residents must water before 10 a.m. or after 4 p.m. and for no longer than seven minutes if using sprinkler systems • Trees and shrubs may be watered three times per week using hand-held container or low-volume hoses • Nurseries and commercial growers may irrigate from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. from June 1 to Oct. 31, and 4 p.m. to 10 a.m. from Nov. 1 to May 31 • Vehicle washing is permitted before 10 a.m. and after 6 p.m. from June 1 to Oct. 31, and before 10 a.m. and after 4 p.m. from Nov. 1 to May 31 • All irrigation is prohibited during rainfall For a more detailed list of restrictions, visit www.san diego.gov/water/conservation /drought.

NEWSbriefs Medical marijuana regulations on horizon The County of San Diego’s recent approval of regulations for medical marijuana dispensaries will impact only the unincorporated areas of San Diego County and will not affect the city of San Diego or other incorporated areas, said Alex Varon of District 1 City Councilwoman Sherri Lightner’s office. At the city level, councilmembers may be asked to compare the county’s regulations to future ordinances that the city’s Medical Marijuana Task Force will later recommend, he added. “The Medical Marijuana Task Force is expected to put forth its recommendations to the City Council sometime this fall,” he said. The county’s regulations include 1,000-foot setbacks near schools, parks, churches and other places of worship, plus monitoring by the Sheriff ’s Department and the installment of proper security features.

Public transportation success depends on efficiency of system B y RO L L I N G R I M M E T T Transportation today is of major concern to our society. We live everyday traveling to and from workplaces, stores, schools and homes — especially in San Diego. Most of us use cars, mostly because public transit in our city is slow and inefficient. Cars are one of the main causes of pollution in San Diego, while also producing greenhouse gases. To prevent these negative effects, we need to spend less money on expanding freeways and more on promoting an efficient public transportation system, coupled with a more widespread carpooling system. Our local government now spends a considerable amount on expanding and maintaining our freeways and roads. The main cause of this is the high density of vehicles on the road. This dense traffic around our city easily causes congestion and delays. Much of our driving is unnecessary and can be reduced. The delays and congested roads that our driving causes contribute to longer transit times for the large amounts of cars. The solution is apparent; reduce the number of cars on the road. Unfortunately, the solutions proposed are many and sometimes difficult to realize. The best way to reduce car density on our roads is to increase the number of passengers per vehicle. This is attainable through the efficient use of trains, buses and our cars themselves. Even though a public transit system for all is economically impossible, we still need to improve our buses and trains to be faster and more enticing for the urban commuter. By reducing the options for normal car transportation in our urban areas, we will need to utilize public transportation, which will provide for our needs efficiently if expanded. Our public transportation’s buses and trolleys need to adapt to provide service to more individuals at convenient times. When we make public transportation cheap and affordable — so long as it works efficiently — we can change our mentality toward transportation, moving away from conventional cars and learning to embrace public transit as an option. Carpooling is a great alternative because it, too, can reduce the number of cars on the road, while also slowly adapting our mentality away from normal car travel. Carpooling benefits the environment by removing up to four cars on the road per carpool, reducing pollution, traffic and congestion. Carpooling also helps reduce the money spent on gas by the participants, making it very enticing for the everyday commuter. In the short term, to help reduce the effects on the environment and the problems with transportation in San Diego, we need to stop the expansion of freeways and roads and focus more on solutions that reduce car density throughout the city. These solutions will not only reduce pollution, but also reduce the number of cars on the roads. By promoting and improving our public transportation, we can slowly become less dependent on cars. By using carpools when available, we reduce the cars on the road. These two solutions, coupled with improvements to our technology, can reduce pollution, congestion and traffic. — Rollin Grimmett is a new graduate of High Tech High International in San Diego.

The La Jolla Art Center Reflections By CAROL OLTEN he year was 1940. Ellen Browning Scripps, La Jolla’s leading citizen and eminent philanthropist, had been dead for eight years and her home — the landmark Irving Gill-designed residence overlooking the ocean — had become an architectural spectre deserted except for remaining pieces of the doyenne’s furniture. Her famous lath house with its Japanese-inspired gardens was falling into ruins. And the Scripps’ estate had listed the whole slowly decaying-property for sale. Enter a group of enterprising La Jolla artists looking for a place to display their work. The deserted Scripps residence — itself a precursor of the modern movement and representing Gill’s cubist progression — seemed a likely place. The estate’s attorney was prevailed upon for the artists to mount a temporary exhibit. The exhibit kept being extended and the artists put a goldfish bowl inside the entrance to collect funds to keep it going. Within a year, the group had a greatly extended agenda — the purchase of the old Scripps estate to establish a permanent art museum undertaken under leader-

quent exhibitors. The Art Center also attracted some unusual international figures such as Great Britain’s Marchioness of Queensberry, who painted movie personalities under the name of Kathleen Mann. Another unique artist featured during its first year was a nine-year-old Navajo Indian boy named Beatien Yazz, whose primitive watercolors of native animals were a source of instant delight. Ted Geisel, recently arrived to La Jolla at that time, also had a show of original illustrations from his new Dr. Seuss book, “Horton Hatches the Egg.” The new Art Center became an
immediate success. It was open daily, free to the public and, in the first year, attracted more than a hundred visitors per day. Painting and sketching classes gained in popularity. It quickly became a cultural and social center of the community. Leading figures of the community ranging from Karl Kenyon to Isabel Hopkins served on the board and committees. Toward the end of its first year, a celebration was held on Oct. 18, the anniversary date of Ellen Browning Scripps’ birthday. She would have been 106. — Carol Olten is the lead historian at the La Jolla Historical Society.
How to make yourself happy es, it’s possible to make yourself happy even when you’re not feeling it. Some things you should know: Contrary to popular opinion, satisfaction with life increases with advancing age. On average, men and women experience emotions similarly, even though women have more fluctuations between positive and negative moods. Married people are happier than unmarried people, but people in unhappy marriages have lower levels of happiness than unmarried or divorced people. Most people who face a serious tragedy, such as an illness or loss, return within a year to their former level of contentment. Conversely, people who win the lottery or have a successful experience revert to their former level of satisfaction. Studies show that we are genetically programmed to live within a fairly narrow range of possible happiness. An inherited positive attitude will help a person in dire circumstances to deal with these events in a more positive way. This said, we are not stuck in that range for life. Just as many other genetic tendencies are influenced by our environment, so is our potential for feeling and expressing negative or positive emotions. In other words, the same news may impact me positively, you negatively and someone else indifferently. However, if my life is made up of mostly good events and a supportive environment, even if I’m programmed to look at the down side of life, I will be able to overcome this to a certain extent.
Doing it Better Natasha Josefowitz, Ph.D. Even though there is much that is not within our control, there are significant variables we can influence. That is, we can learn to control our thoughts and feelings; we have control over how we feel over the past, the present and the future. The past: Do you dwell on past grievances? Can you forgive the transgressors who caused the pain? Can you move on from past injustices? Visualize the negative events while taking deep breaths and try to understand the perpetrator’s point of view. Create a story he or she might tell. Decide to forgive and move on. Sometimes writing a letter forgiving the person can help, even if you don’t intend to mail it. The future: Are you an optimist or a pessimist? Do you always dwell on the worst-case scenario? The difference is that pessimists believe bad events are permanent while optimists think they are temporary. Also, pessimists overreact to adversity; expecting the worst makes them experience events as worse than they are. Optimists tend to see the world in positive outcomes and are able to get over negative events quicker. They are also more tolerant of their own foibles as well as those of others. The present: Do you enjoy the moment, grate-

ship of Gordon Gray, a prominent La Jolla resident whose spectacular home at 1900 Spindrift Drive had become a social and cultural gathering place. In 1941, they purchased the Scripps home and grounds for a remarkable sum of $11,000! Such was the beginning of the present-day Museum of Contemporary Art, originally incorporated as The Art Center of La Jolla, a nonprofit institution governed by a board of trustees serving without pay, and administered by a small paid staff. Much of the fledgling art center’s first success was due to Gray’s endeavors. On Feb. 20, 1941, his personal letter to the community seeking support for the facility ran on the front page of the La Jolla Journal newspaper. He encouraged preservation of the house by supporting its conversion to an art museum, pointing out that the price to be paid represented only 1 percent of what she had donated to the community in terms of educational, recreational and cultural facilities. The first exhibits were scheduled on a monthly basis and included many local artists as well as popular figures in the art movement of the greater Southwest.

Mine for today are my granddaughter called, I read a good book and I walked on the treadmill for 20 minutes. Do you live fully today, not worrying about past misdeeds nor being anxious about an unforeseeable future? Of course we learn from past mistakes and prepare for the future, but it’s important to appreciate the moment. Meditation calms the brain and physical exercise reduces stress. Adequate sleep and good nutrition are important factors in our feelings of wellbeing. If you feel cranky and out-of-sorts eat a piece of chocolate to boost your serotonin. Peanuts, bananas and turkey contain tryptophan, which has a calming effect. And, finally, laugh more — be with jolly people, keep funny things around, send jokes so that you will also receive them. “Put on a happy face” is not an old wives’ tale. Research has shown that by changing your facial muscles you set off different physiological changes that will in turn affect your mood. Even when you don’t feel cheerful but you smile, the blood flow to the brain increases production of the neurotransmitters which make you feel happier. So, if you can’t laugh, then smile, and if you don’t feel like smiling, fake it. Your brain won’t know the difference, and it will send you a message that something pleasant is going on.

more,” Cunningham said. VAVi officials acknowledge the competition in San Diego from other sports leagues, but believe they offer a premium product that includes officiated games, customizable T-shirts, member benefits, happy-hour specials and more. “Soccer is massive right now, especially with the World Cup [going on],” Cunningham said. While VAVi focuses on its core sports like flag football, soccer, kickball and beach volleyball, it offers a variety of alternative activities. VAVi organizes volunteer efforts, offers instructional dance and workout classes, and coordinates activities like group hiking. VAVi is often thought of as a single’s club in the community, but it is not, Cunningham insisted. VAVi boasts memberships of single and married participants alike. Cunningham said he also knows members who met at a VAVi activity, fell in love and who are now married. Flag football is among the plethora of social sporting hosted by VAVi social sports club. As summer heats up and numerous leagues hit full swing, COURTESY PHOTO VAVi officials are deciding if they will split some sports into competitive and social divisions. “Over the next eight years, we plan on growing in San Diego,” Cunningham said. “We plan on continuing to improve our product, work with more and more corporate companies for team-building tournaments and events, and grow VAVi into more of a marketing agency that activates major brands.” FLAG FOOTBALL, TACKLE FOOTBALL AND For more information, visit www.govavi.com.
Fun is the name of the game when VAVi is involved — and its 36,000 members would likely agree. Tyler Jensen founded the social sports club eight years ago in the garage of his Pacific Beach residence. Jensen now acts as a consultant for the company that expects to boast a membership of 50,000 people by the end of the year. As it stands, VAVi attracts 300 new members a week. VAVi draws recreation enthusiasts between the ages of 21 and 40. It is geared toward young, active professionals, said Keith Cunningham, director of marketing for VAVi. The first sport launched was beach volleyball. Each week, 30 players would gather in Mission Beach to play in the sand. Popularity took hold and it is now one of the most highlysought VAVi leagues. VAVi facilitates all aspects of both its sports leagues and participation in one of the many group activities. From T-shirts to coordinating roster signups, VAVi officials manage it all. Leagues and activities take place on various fields and locations throughout San Diego. “VAVi is a household name at this point,” Cunningham said. The name VAVi doesn’t refer to anyone’s last name, nor is it an acronym. Most of VAVi’s members say they don’t even know its origin. The answer is simple. Jensen simply wanted a word that sounded fun, Cunningham said. Whether it’s the fun-sounding name or the games VAVi offers, word of mouth has been a key ingredient for the company’s success. “It’s the best way for local people to break up their work week,” Cunningham said. VAVi’s organizers said they strive to maintain good relationships with team captains, which helps keep leagues running smoothly. The relationship also strives to keep members engaged by staying relevant. VAVi’s Facebook page has a loyal base of 4,700 users who stay informed by viewing updates, participating in contests and viewing team photos posted by VAVi officials. With only seven full-time employees working for the growing company, VAVi has a lot riding on the field. “You pay a little bit more, but you get a significant amount Ron Dunlay charges the ball during a heated game of kickball hosted by VAVi in Pacific Beach.

Junior Lifeguard program swims through summer BY ANTHONY GENTILIE | VILLAGE NEWS With summer in full swing, more than 500 9- to 17-year olds are storming local beaches as part of the San Diego Junior Lifeguard program. The twosession program started in June and will run through mid-August. “The classroom is great, but to get them out there and not just let them hear about it or see it on a video — they get to live it,” said program manager James Murphy. “It’s learning by doing.” Thanks to a new location at south Mission Beach, the Junior Lifeguard program added a handful of new recruits this year. The program rotates between south Mission Beach and Santa Clara Point daily with weekly trips to city beaches in La Jolla, Pacific Beach and Ocean Beach. “We’re trying to add new things to the program and hopefully can expand it from here into other areas in the not too distant future,” Murphy said. “We want to keep kids engaged in healthy things.” The first session of junior lifeguards visited La Jolla Cove on June 30 and the second session will visit the cove on Aug. 4. The second session also has a La Jolla Shores trip planned for Aug. 19. Students in the program are split up into three groups — “A,” “B” and “C,” — based on age and times in a 100-meter swim. The top lifeguards in the “A” class are “Cadets.” “It’s a lot of jumping and shouting and having fun when they’re younger and then we get more into competition and do things, and then when they’re older we get them on some tools to use that they wouldn’t get in different places,” Murphy said. The activities junior lifeguards participate in include surfing, health and wellness, fin painting, and environmental awareness. The first session of students graduates July 20 and the second session graduates Aug. 20. “It gives them skills in order to perform in the ocean,” Murphy said, “and hopefully prepares them for careers in lifeguarding, firefighting or any other public service, if not just having great skills for life.” SEE LIFEGUARD, Page 12

Moon walking at La Jolla Shores BY JUDITH LEA GARFIELD
Low tide reveals the pitfalls that scour holes present at higher tide.
© 2010 JUDITH LEA GARFIELD
Want to take a walk on the moon? No need to queue up for an overpriced shuttle ticket. When the right mix of water conditions merge, the sandy seafloor around the surf zone, like that found at La Jolla Shores, transforms from a relatively even blanket of grains to a landscape pockmarked with craters. At these times, beachgoers may be surprised to step through the water and stumble into a depression. It may look snickerworthy but these craters strike terror in us divers equipped with 80 pounds or more gear for fear of a sprained ankle. Waders and swimmers are not off the hook. When the lunar landscape is in ripel Swiss cheese mode, the odds of a stingray strike skyrocket because the “stingray shuffle” is ineffective on uneven surfaces. It’s not that stingrays aren’t lying in wait; they seek the calmest place in an otherwise chaotic environment. Many divers think the craters are made by bat rays, big, winged fish that expertly dig up the sand while foraging for prey. However, bat rays hunt beyond the surf zone. It turns out that sand crater formation near the water’s edge is not biological, but physical. Officially called “scour holes,” the depressions are made by waves and currents, which shift the sand, especially at the base of a shoreline. Geology is also involved. Sandy beaches almost always have layers of cobbles beneath them, and these are common-
ly exposed during the higher waves of winter, which carries the sand further offshore. The smaller waves of summer return the sand onshore in large, smooth sheets that eventually blanket the cobbles. Though only a thin layer of sand is needed to hide the cobbles, at least a footthickness of sand needs depositing before the cobbles are no longer influenced by wave action. And since the cobbles don’t layer evenly as does sand, sand grains fill the pockets around the stones but do so irregularly, covering the cobbles faster in some areas than others. Rip currents may also scour sand, exposing cobbles in some areas of the beach more than others, particularly near where the waves break. In a nutshell, scour holes are a sign that sand levels are changing and water is in motion. Interestingly, scour holes have a deep connection to the levee breach from Hurricane Katrina. When storm water overran the levees, the normally dry side of the levee structures was pounded by torrents of water, which led to scour holes developing in the sand below. Keep in mind that while the levee foundations support the levee, it is sand that supports the foundations. Floodwater turmoil scoured away the sand, exposing and, so, weakening the foundations until they collapsed. SEE JUMP, Page 12

cliff rescues and operating boats. The cost-recoverable program leans on help from organizations such as the non-profit San Diego Junior Lifeguard Foundation to keep growing. “They helped us get into the standup paddle arena,” Murphy said. “We needed funding to buy the boards and they came up and bought us 22 standup paddleboards.” For more information about the Junior Lif eguard prog ram, visit www.sandiego.gov/lifeguards/junior/in dex.shtml.

Hats off to local milliner Diana Cavagnaro Hat designer preps for opening day at Del Mar BY MEAGHAN CLARK | VILLAGE NEWS It’s obvious that Diana Cavagnaro has a passion for hats, and not just because she’s always seen wearing one. When talking about millinery’s history or her own line — Designer Millinery — she lights up. “I just love wearing hats,” she said in her Gaslamp Quarter loft that doubles as a work space. Cavagnaro has worked in millinery since 1981, learning the trade as an assistant in the Old Globe Theater’s millinery department before she earned her degree in fashion at Mesa College. Her downtown business has earned national recognition after she created a well-publicized hat for Morgan Fairchild during her days on the sitcom “Fashion House” and also a hat for Oprah Winfrey.
Models wear Ximena Valero & Alvarez, Miriam Jewels and Designer Millinery hats on downtown’s Andaz Hotel Rooftop, scene of the Ladies Summer Shopping Soiree on June 23. DIANA CAVAGNARO | Village News
Even with national exposure, Cavagnaro’s biggest day of the year is the opening day at the Del Mar races. The local event has the designer prepping months ahead of time. “Most people want the hat first and then they go out and buy the dress because [the hat] is the focal point,” she said. “I always call [opening day] the biggest fashion show of the year.” Cavagnaro has fitted some of San Diego celebrities for the annual summer event, including Aloha Taylor and Kimberly Hunt. Unlike department store finds, all of Cavagnaro’s hats are fitted to perfection. For someone with a head size “a bit larger” than most, there is some personal appeal to making such specialized garments. “Anyone that has a head size that’s larger or smaller gets so excited that they can come here and I can make a hat that fits their head,” she said. After just a few measurements and about seven hours, a Designer Millinery creation is ready to wear. She attributes her current success to young women, espeHat designer and fashion expert Diana Cavagnaro bases her Designer Millinery work space in cially those that take her hat making classes at Mesa College. a Gaslamp Quarter loft. MEAGHAN CLARK | Village News “It’s really changed [since the ’80s] because the younger generation loves to wear hats,” she said. Her expanding business is expected to grow with a line of golf hats and a store in Los Angeles. Hats in every shape and size line the walls of her small showroom and workplace. Large brimmed hats sit atop faceless mannequins while accessories fill a brightly-lit glass display case. The six hat styles she keeps in rotation, aside from special orders, are made more unique by the material. In the past, she has used mens’ ties, a potato burlap sack and vintage ribbons. “I love to repurpose things and like to use vintage supplies so that when I put something together it makes it one of a kind,” she said. It isn’t easy to forget one of Cavagnaro’s hats. “Everybody has their own style and personality,” she said, a trait she translates into each design, making a Cavagnaro hat a work of art. Just as obvious as her devotion to millinery is her volunteer work. Cavagnaro donates her time and skills to cancer patients with the Look Good, Feel Better program, teaching cancer patients to tie head scarves and wear hats. “It’s wonderful to help the less fortunate,” she said. She was recognized for her work in 2003 when Look Good, Feel Better honored her with the California Division Sunrise Award.
14 Tuxedos — with tennis shoes? THURSDAY · JULY 1, 2010
LA JOLLA VILLAGE NEWS
Starry, starry nights
with Vincent Andrunas California’s oldest major orchestra’s first performance was on Dec. 6, 1910, and its Centennial Season Celebration began with last week’s Summer Pops season opener, the annual Tux ’n’ Tennies Summer Bash, starring songstress Toni Braxton. The orchestra is our very own San Diego Symphony (SDS), which has grown over the years, reaching prestigious Group 1 status. The event’s name describes its dress code. The invitation suggested formal gown, summer dress or pant suit for women; tuxedo, Bermuda shorts with tux jacket, or Hawaiian shirt with formal suit for men. But the key phrase was “Anything goes — fun, funky or formal.” Guests exercised their individuality, showing up in attire ranging from fully formal to overtly outrageous. While most went with tennis shoes or similar footwear, some very stylish ladies sporting super-sexy spike heels found themselves sinking into the soft ground (but were gallantly assisted by their appreciative escorts). Overall, the range of dress provided a highly entertaining show. Event chairs were Bill and Lori Walton. Anyone who’s ever heard of basketball will remember the 6’-11” (some say
actually 7’-2”) Walton as a La Mesa-born, UCLA mega-superstar, who was drafted number one overall by Portland’s NBA team and later starred with the San Diego Clippers. Bill called his wife Lori “My angel of mercy — not my granddaughter,” and those acquainted with them know that in some ways, the diminutive Lori is as tall as her husband Bill. Tux ’n’ Tennies began with the “What’s Everybody Wearing?” hour, wherein new arrivals entertained with their sartorial imagination, while everyone enjoyed gigantic shrimp, great crab claws, sushi, fine cheeses, a fully-stocked bar, and mini-splits of Chandon bubbly garnished with clef-shaped straws. Dinner followed, buffet-style, with guests seated at tables spread before the stage. Buffets offered varied salads, free-range chicken, peppered prime strip loin and French lamb chops. The Monarch School’s “Steel Monarchs” steel drum band played during cocktails and dinner. After a few appropriately enthusiastic speeches by symphony officials and an imaginative video “baton pass” from Symphony Hall to the Embarcadero Marina Park event venue (symbolizing SDS’ extensive outreach and education programs), members of four San Diego youth orchestras performed “side by side” with SDS musicians. A “Fund-aNote” session solicited donations for such efforts, starting at the $5,000 level, and was met with substantial generosity. For a June night in San Diego, the weather took an unusually chilly turn. Fortunately, adroit SDS planners (apparently foreseeing the possibility) provided guests with bright yellow gift blankets, which many used to preserve their comfort.
SOCIETY Five-time Grammy Award-winning headliner Toni Braxton then took the stage, with two of her sisters as backup singers. (She also invited some audience members to come up and sing with her, and three did. One of them was really quite good — but the others should cling tenaciously to their day jobs!) Braxton’s show included “Breathe Again,” “Another Sad Love Song,” “You’re Makin’ Me High” and her top hit “Un-Break My Heart.” The performance garnered a standing ovation after which DJ David Anderson played for an hour of dancing.

Three, two, one — jump!
With longer days, warmer weather and rising ocean temperatures, it won’t be long until San Diego’s beaches and pools are spilling over with kids. While summer fun should be enjoyable for the whole family, swimming can present risks, especially for young children. By taking a few simple precautions, you can help ensure your kids are splashing and swimming safely.
By Connie Cook | Guest Columnist
STAY SAFE IN THE POOL: According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, nearly 300 children under the age of five drown in residential and community pools and spas each year, and thousands more require medical treatment for serious injuries. These tragedies occur far more often in backyard swimming pools than at community or recreational centers. The most important factor in preventing such incidents is constant adult supervision any time children are in or near a pool. In some cases, adults mistakenly think that someone else is watching a child playing in a pool, and doesn’t realize that the child needs help until it is too late. Keep lifesaving equipment by the pool, and always ensure a phone is easily within reach in case of an emergency. somewhat simple exercises, you shouldn’t start plyometric training unless you are already pretty well-conditioned, or you risk injury. The exercises are powerful and take a good base of strength to perform. There is a tremendous amount of force generated with plyometric movements, so it is important to develop a safe landing technique. Most importantly, get with someone who knows what they are doing to learn how to properly do the exercises. You can jump on the phone and call a personal trainer or jump on-line and research the topic further. Either way, you might as well JUMP! Go ahead and JUMP!
Split-squat jump Stand with your feet staggered about 18 to 24 inches apart. Jump up and while in the air quickly switch legs forward and backward. Land and absorb the impact softly by bending both legs until the back knee is about an inch from the ground. Keep your chest up and maintain good posture throughout. The front knee shouldn’t move too far past the toes. If you don’t jump, don’t run, what do you do? Let’s suppose you’re a fighter, not a lover. Anyone who participates in martial arts training can attest that speed and power are crucial to the discipline. Lightening speed punches and bone-crushing kicks can put you in the victor’s circle. You have to practice the techniques over and over and visualize the speed you need. Like a snake on its prey, the punch has to be overwhelming when you strike. Preparing your upper body with plyometric exercises is one way to prepare for your match. Here’s a simple twist on a basic exercise to help you do that:
Drop push-ups Assume a position upright but on your knees with both arms at chest level slightly more than shoulder width apart bent at 90 degrees. Drop to your hands without hesitation and forcefully contract when the hands touch the floor as to limit the amount of arm bend. You want to spend as little time on the ground as possible. The higher the “drop” the more force is absorbed, thus the more power potential to develop. Although all of these are effective and
Pool and spa drains can pose the risk of entrapment if not properly installed or protected. Entrapment can occur when the powerful suction of a pool or spa drain keeps a child from escaping the drain, or when a child’s arm, leg, hair or clothing gets stuck in a faulty drain cover. Teach children to stay away from pool and spa drains, and tie up long hair and loose swimsuit ties to help prevent entanglement. When you’re not using the pool at home, make sure you take proper safety measures to keep children out of the area, including installing fencing, door and pool alarms, and automatic pool covers. California safety laws require fencing around residential swimming pools. OPEN WATER SAFETY: Children need to understand that swimming in a lake, ocean or other open water is much different than in a pool. Uneven surfaces, sudden dropoffs, waves, currents and sea life each pose their own risks. Allow children to swim only in designated swimming areas patrolled by lifeguards, and assign an adult to watch them as well. TEACH YOUR CHILD TO SWIM: It’s a good idea to teach your child to swim as soon as he or she is ready. A number of swimming schools offer lessons for children as young as three months to teach them to be comfortable in the water. Look for a professional, certified swim school that caters to families with children. Taking lessons year-round can help children become strong, confident swimmers. And who knows, you might discover the next Michael Phelps!
Wall jumps Reach your arm over your head and mark a target on a wall that is a little higher that your extended arm. Stand in front of the wall with your feet about shoulder-with apart. Then start jumping and consistently reach for the target with alternating hands and try to reach the target on every jump. Time on the ground should be minimal and each jump should be as high as the one before. Let’s assume your next goal is to improve your running speed (since it’s quite possible person A in your life recently found out about person B in your life and now you might need to run for your life!). Plyometric training can help you here, too. Runners are always trying to get faster. Whether you’re a sprinter or a marathoner, plyometric exercises are beneficial to your training because of the running-specific nature of the exercises. Here is a simple but powerful exercise to help increase your running speed:
Keep Your Kids Swimming Safely By Pam Nagata, Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla
FIT SAVVY You can jump to conclusions, jump to the rhythm, jump on it, jump for joy, you can even jump the gun. With all this jumping around everyone seems to be doing, it seems one of the best jumps you may be missing is the jump into plyometric training. Plyometric exercises are used to train for a wide range of sports to help athletes reach peak physical condition by improving their strength and power. Sometimes referred to as “jump training,” plyometric exercises are big, explosive movements. Every action is done with the intent to have a muscle reach full movement as quickly as possible. The first time you try plyometric drills you may feel as agile as an elephant jumping rope, but in time you will get the hang of it and become lighter on your feet, more comfortable with the movements and precise in your execution. So let’s say you have a goal to jump higher, because you never know when you may feel the urge to slam dunk something on your way to work (a wad of paper into something taller than the trash can). Whatever your reason, here is a simple but effective drill to improve your vertical jump:

It’s important to remember that no matter how well your child can swim or how well-supervised they are, accidents can happen. Learn infant and child CPR and keep a phone nearby.

Neighborhood House Association Launches Virtual Fundraiser Innovative Virtual Gala Takes Place July 6 through August 4 at www.nhagala.org. Local businesses, corporations and kind-hearted community members now have their chance to help thousands of individuals and families in San Diego County continue to receive the vital programs and services they depend on, as of Tuesday, July 6, with the launch of Neighborhood House Association’s (NHA), fourth annual Virtual Gala. NHA, San Diego County’s premiere nonprofit human services agency, founded this unique fundraising event in 2007 to reduce eventrelated costs by over 200 percent compared to a live gala. All the action is taking place at www.nhagala.org, where anyone can stop by at their convenience, 24 hours a day, to make a donation or purchase a table. Supporters will also be able to bid on one of several dream items up for auction. The gala will continue through August 4, when bidding closes. “Over the last three years, many kind-hearted San Diego business and individuals have come together to raise more than $400,000 to support local communities through NHA’s programs and services,” said local business leader Jack McGrory, 2010 Virtual Gala Chair. “The Virtual Gala presents an ideal opportunity for local businesses and individuals to give back to the community in these tough economic times.” Neighborhood House Association helps thousands of individuals and families every day improve their quality of life by providing vital social services within the community. This year, Neighborhood House Association (NHA) will provide hope to thousands of San Diego County residents who are in need of vital social services such as child development, health, emergency food and other human services. “Today, more than 350,000 individuals in our area live below the federal poverty threshold,” said Rudolph A. Johnson, III, NHA President and CEO. “Many of these underserved individuals and families are in need of child care to be able to go to work, family support services to enhance their quality of life, access to the medical care they need or just help in an emergency. We can’t serve our neighbors in need without the help of the community.”
Participants of the 2010 NHA Virtual Gala need only go to www.nhagala.org and are encouraged to visit often for updates on the live auction. Further information on NHA and its programs is available at www.neighborhoodhouse.org

SEVEN STEPS FOR KEEPING PETS SAFE THIS SUMMER Here’s how to protect Fido and Fluffy from heat, water hazards, toxins and more Days are longer, the sun is warmer and summer is on its way. Pet owners love getting out with their furry friends to enjoy long walks, beach trips and outdoor festivals – and with a few simple steps, people can protect their pets from illness and injury all season long.
When on the road, letting dogs stick their heads out the window puts them at risk of inner ear damage, lung infections and injury. Keep them safe inside by attaching harnesses to seat buckles or using a seat belt made for pets. Another option is a crate or carrier secured with a seat belt, which prevents it from shifting during sudden stops. Similarly, don’t let dogs ride loose in the backs of trucks. A crate in the cab keeps them from being thrown off the vehicle or hit with flying debris.
6. Celebrate smartly. If your social calendar includes pet-friendly parties, keep animals away from foods that might make them sick. Chocolate, raisins and onions are not good for dogs, for example, and alcoholic beverages can harm pets. Some pets are fearful of fireworks. If dogs get anxious or aggressive around other dogs or 1.

Protect against pests and poisons. Ticks, separated. Talk to your vet about safe flea and tick mosquitoes, fleas and other pests come on strong control options, especially if you’ll be spending during the summer, so take preventive measures extra time outdoors. Always keep your pet’s to protect pets. In addition, keep them off areas vaccinations current, no matter what the season. that have been sprayed with chemicals or insecticides, and always store fertilizers and 2. Splash safely.

Stay cool. Keep pets cool on hot days by scheduling early morning or evening walks, before the sun beats down and sidewalks heat up. Remember, hot pavement can burn delicate paws. Provide plenty of cool, fresh water and find shady rest spots. Consider a short-haired summer shave to prevent overheating, as well. 4. Watch for warning signs. Heatstroke can strike pets, so recognize early warning signs such as excessive panting and drooling, bright red gums, weakness and balance problems. As the condition worsens, it can trigger labored breathing, lethargy and even seizures. Flat-faced animals, including pugs, bulldogs and Persian cats, have a hard time panting and face higher heatstroke risk. If your pet is struggling, lower his body temperature with cool water or cold towels and let him lick ice-chips or drink small bowls of water. 5. Travel well. Never leave pets in closed vehicles on hot days: A car can heat up to 100 degrees or more in just minutes, even if parked in the shade.

Lending and Small Businesses Loans Ten things your banker likes to see when applying for a loan: Tell your banker exactly how much you need. Bankers get a lot of proposals that say "I think I need" or "I need between $ and $" – giving the banker a dollar range of what they want. No one wants to hear a banker say "I think I might give you a loan"-- the point is to be definitive.
Tell your banker exactly what you will spend the loan proceeds on. A general statement such as "I need $200,000 for working capital and equipment" doesn't give your banker enough detail. A banker seeks information, so be specific. A statement such as "I need $75,000 for working capital to support 3 months of expenses while the business is growing, and then another $125,000 for equipment that consists of $50,000 for a computer system (6 computers plus software and server), and $75,000 for a CNC lathe" is what bankers look for. Copies of bids or proposals in the package help strengthen the loan package because your banker can see facts backing up the request.
Tell me more about who will run the company. Bankers have seen a lot of well-run companies during good times, but they are run into the ground during bad times due to poor management. Include a resume for each of the major players of the company. If you don't have someone yet, include a thorough job description for the type of person you are looking for. Who will be in charge of sales? What about accounting? How about employee training and supervision? Knowing who will run the company tells me if you have thought out every position and details about who does what.
What will you offer for collateral? An SBA loan is not free money, and SBA does require collateral. If you have a home, please understand that, for the most part, you will be asked to pledge it. If you want a bank's resources, you have to be willing to pledge your own. Banks that do SBA loans are really not in the business of unsecured lending, so the bank may only be able to approve your loan if there is a guarantor willing to offer collateral for you.
Don't spend the time putting your plan in a fancy binder with all kinds of nifty tabs. Your banker will have to tear it all apart to fit it in a standard bank file, so the pretty presentation does nothing for the bank.
Give your banker complete copies of ALL the pages of your tax returns, financial statements, bank statements, etc. The first two pages don't really give your banker the information needed. The bank needs to know everything if it is going to be your money partner. If you are sensitive to lessening your carbon footprint and don't want to photocopy hundreds of pages, scan in all the pages and give your banker a disk with the information on it, or email it.
Tell me about your credit history and your credit score. Your banker will eventually run a credit report and find it all out anyway, so it's better to explain up front rather than wait to tell the banker later. If you don't know your credit score, it's worth spending $20 on the internet to pull a report and see what your report has to say about you before you submit your loan package. If you've had problems like identity theft, bankruptcy, divorce, etc., tell your banker up front and give him proof that it has been satisfied, discharged or fixed.

Tell why you will be successful and be able to achieve your projections. If you have customers who want to do business with you, give your banker a copy of your correspondence that says so. Prove to your banker as why your sales figures and expense figures are what they are. If your Cost of Goods Sold (COGS) has historically been 65% and now you can lower it to 55%, show how you came up with that calculation. If buying that new piece of machinery is the reason you only need 1 operator instead of 4, then show the math of how you will save.
Be patient. Now that you see the level of detail that the bank needs, it takes time to read all the way through it. Just as you didn't put your package together in a day, your banker will need time too. Feel free to ask your banker about a timeframe for initial questions from the bank and when a final answer can be expected. However, don't call every day asking if it's done. Email is convenient because bankers are pressed for time and have just a few questions you can answer via email. These days, businesses, including banks, are doing more with the same number or sometimes fewer people.
Finally, don't be irritated if your banker asks a lot of questions or ask for more back up to the information already provided. Be patient with the process, bank regulators are picky consequently so are bank credit officers.

By Tom Dyson, Analyst and Editor, DailyWealth.com/Weekly I ride my bike to work, always taking the same route. I pass the same 100 or so houses every day. This week, I noticed two new properties have come on the market. One of these houses is on the beach. The owner has posted a large billboard on the curb. "Foreclosure Sale," it announces. "Online Auction." Every week I see new for-sale signs along my route. This is the first auction notice I've seen. And although it's an ugly, wornout old house, it's on prime beachfront property. Most Americans gauge real estate using the same process I use on my bike. They talk to their neighbors, they notice for-sale postings along their street, and they watch local news reports. From this "bicycle-seat view," it appears to the average American that the bear market in real estate in still in full swing and getting worse by the week. Here's the thing: Trying to predict trends in the real estate market by watching house prices is like trying to predict the stock market by watching CNBC. It doesn't work. Houses are illiquid assets. It can take months for homeowners to accept their houses have fallen in value and lower their prices. Many potential sellers have mortgages larger than the value of their homes. They can't sell. Banks have it even worse. It takes an average 15 months for a bank to sell a property after the first missed mortgage payment. Many foreclosures haven't hit the market yet. House prices are what economists would call a "lagging indicator." They are slow to react to new trends in the market. For forecasting purposes, they are useless. To judge what's really going on in real estate, you need a leading indicator. My favorite leading indicator to assess the housing market is the price of lumber. Homebuilding and remodeling account for 66% of total lumber consumption in the U.S. The lumber market is a small, illiquid market, so it's sensitive to any changes in supply and demand. In the last cycle, for example, lumber prices peaked in May 2004, two years ahead of house prices. If house prices are going to turn up, you'll see it first in the lumber price, and that's what's happening right now. In the month of March, the lumber price soared 29% after making a "quadruple bottom" at $140 a contract. Starting in April, it broke out to a new high for the year. This is incredible strength in a market you'd think would be dying. If the trend withers, expect lower house prices ahead. But if it continues, expect a bottom in home prices within the next 18 months.
