Beach booze party relocates to park BY ADRIANE TILLMAN | VILLAGE NEWS
It appears the beach party has moved up the hill to Kate Sessions Park. The number of visitors quadrupled on the Fourth of July. It’s the last large park in the area where businesses and weddings can serve alcohol to guests. Reviewers on the website Yelp rave about this hidden gem overlooking the entire city where people can still sip a cold one in the open. “[The alcohol ban] worked well at the beach, but we have seen some spillover,” Police Chief William Lansdowne said. “The
largest congregation is showing up at Kate Sessions Park. [On the Fourth of July] there were 300 people last year and 1,200 this year. We’re paying very close attention to it. If it continues to build, we’ll have to look at the alcohol drinking ability there.” Police and park and recreation staff responded to the July 4 crowds by adding more portable toilets and sending more police officers. Someone had tapped into a public water line and set up a Slip n’ Slide, which was illegal given the water restrictions. SEE PARK, Page 3

Council gives builders a break BY ANTHONY GENTILE | VILLAGE NEWS
City councilmembers adopted their own economic stimulus package of sorts July 21, lending approval to two ordinances aimed at helping builders affected by the sour financial climate. One ordinance defers specific building fees and was approved with a 6-2 vote. The proposal was opposed by District 1 Councilwoman Sherri Lightner and District 6 Councilwoman Donna Frye. The second ordinance grants a one-year extension for builders struggling to obtain financing for current projects that have permits about to expire. The item was approved unanimously.
District 2 Councilman Kevin Faulconer helped introduce and support both ordinances. “It helps a lot of people throughout the city and also helps a lot of homeowners who need extra time,” Faulconer said. The first ordinance allows deferred payment of Facilities Benefit Assessments (FBA) and Developer Impact Fees (DIF) until the final inspection of a project. Before the new ordinance was passed Tuesday, these fees were paid before a building permit was issued. Fees vary depending on the scope of the project. According to a July 16 report by the Independent Budget Analyst’s Office, FBA provide all of the funds for public facilities projects
that service a designated area of benefit and are identified in community plans. DIF have been collected in urbanized communities near the time when the build-out capacity of the land is identified. “These changes will also provide a stimulus for construction projects by allowing developers to defer the payment of FBA and DIF, thus freeing up limited capital,” the report said. The second ordinance grants a one-year tentative map extension for building projects already approved but that expired July 15, 2008.

Seal deal goes back to court this morning BY ALYSSA RAMOS | VILLAGE NEWS
Despite a judge’s ruling Monday, which ordered the city of San Diego to start dispersing La Jolla’s harbor seal colony within 72 hours, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger hours later approved a bill that representatives from the mayor and city attorney’s office said would nullify the judge’s order saving the colony. “The city’s going back to court on Thursday,” said Animal Protection
and Rescue League’s SealWatch attorney Brian Pease regarding an emergency ex parte hearing to introduce the signed legislation. “It’s looking good [for the seals] and it was just in the nick of time.” Ongoing court battles over the Children’s Pool — mainly whether Judge Yuri Hoffman could enforce a previous ruling ordering the city to return the area to its 1941 condition by dispersing a colony of seals — climaxed July 20 at Hoffman’s hearing to decide which seal
dispersal plan was most efficient. A statement released from Mayor Jerry Sanders’ office said the city would comply with Hoffman’s order, “while all research indicates the costly undertaking of seal dispersal is unlikely to achieve the goal of improving water qualiSEE SEAL DEAL, Page 5 Alexia McKay, 11, takes what may be her last photo of seals on Children’s Pool beach July 22.

La Jollan stars in new flamenco rock opera BY ALYSSA RAMOS | VILLAGE NEWS
Native La Jollan Cihtli Ocampo fell in love with flamenco dancing — and composer Ethan Margolis — after moving to Spain. Margolis drew upon his musical upbringing while writing and composing “Spanish Day,” a flamenco rock opera starring Ocampo and Arte y Pureza Flamenco Troop that debuts 8 p.m. Saturday, July 25 at the Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center’s Garfield Theater. “Spanish Day” is about “a boy from the States from a broken home that goes to Spain and falls in love with a woman and the culture of dance and the marriage of the two,” said Kelsey Tyree of J Public Rela-
tions. “And he is tormented because he can’t be without it.” Margolis — a member of San Diego-based flamenco rock band Sir Sultry and head of Arte y Pureza Flamenco Troop — combined many cultures for “Spanish Day,” which uses a total of 16 performers, he said. But Margolis said his inspiration was drawn from his American rock upbringing. “One of the most interesting things is the multitude of cultures going into this project — we’ve got classical musicians, an African-American soul singer, a gypsy singer from Spain — it’s a huge cultural joining,” Margolis said. “And this has never been SEE FLAMENCO, Page 4

PARK CONTINUED FROM Page 1
A YouTube video shows people happily sliding down the plastic with beers in hand. At 8 p.m. a helicopter flew over the park to announce the drinking must stop; the park only permits alcohol from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Soledad Road resident Mary Christian-Heising is worried the neighborhood is losing the community park to the whole county. She said she was disturbed by the number of men urinating on the grass instead of waiting in line for the portable restrooms on July 4. “We don’t want to be after the fact,” Christian-Heising said. District 2 City Councilman Kevin Faulconer’s office has received only two complaints about alcohol usage at Kate Sessions and will continue to monitor the situation, according to Tony Manolatos, communications director for Faulconer’s office. “The [alcohol] ban was just for beaches and bays,” Manolatos said. “Alcohol was banned at most of the beaches and bays in Southern California, so we had become a magnet for the problem. The city handles the parks on a case-by-case basis.” Richard Crider, director of the Pacific Beach Recreation Center, which oversees Kate Sessions, said he did not receive any complaints about July 4 festivities at Kate Sessions. The Village News and Beach & Bay Press, however, received three letters in July from people concerned about the shifting culture at Kate Sessions Park. “Kate Sessions Park in north PB has been ‘discovered,’” wrote Christian Winkle, who has lived a block from the park since 1986. “It is no longer the place for a picnic, a walk or sun-

bathing on a blanket. Now every Saturday people are ‘roping off’ areas with police tape and ‘reserving’ their areas early in the day for stand-up cocktail parties with amplified music. Thirty or so ‘friends’ show up and bring the beach with them to Kate Sessions.” Winkle said he does not want the city to ban alcohol at the park, but he would like to see amplified music restricted and a limit on the number of permits given to large groups. The city permanently prohibited drinking alcohol on beaches and around bays in San Diego in January 2008, including adjacent parks like grassy Scripps Park in La Jolla and Sunset Cliffs Natural Park in Point Loma. Bill Klees, chair of the Point Loma Association, said the situation at Sunset Cliffs Natural Park is calm but he attributes that to the installation of a gate that locks people out of the park at 10 p.m. Klees doesn’t approve that the majority of residents were penalized for the minority that abused alcohol at the beach, although he does recall his own tenants saving old couches to drag down to the beach to leave on the sand. “All that the beach alcohol ban has done is created problems in the neighborhoods now,” Klees said. ■

Canes open less than a week after fire BY ANTHONY GENTILE | VILLAGE NEWS
Barely a week out from a grease fire that caused an estimated $2 million in damage, Canes Bar & Grill is already open for business. The restaurant and nightclub located at 3105 Oceanfront Walk will begin serving food by the weekend and none of their scheduled shows will be cancelled. “A lot of people thought we’d be closed down and we opened up two days later – that’s just how we do business,” Canes owner Eric Leitstein said. “It’s just a temporary setback.” Currently, Canes’ club and rooftop bar are open at full capacity. Leitstein said he plans to install an auxiliary kitchen this week with the
hope of offering a limited menu of food by this weekend. “We’re going to put some [Pacific Beach] Ale House items on there and prep some of the food over at the Ale House,” Leitstein said. Leitstein said the kitchen will open in two to three weeks and Canes will be fully open in three weeks. In addition to work on the kitchen, a new air conditioning system will be installed and assorted structural and electrical work will be done. All shows at Canes are still planned as scheduled, starting with Clutch on July 20, which drew about 500 people. Shows cancelled over the weekend will be rescheduled and refunds will be issued at the point of purchase. The fire occurred last Thurs-
day, July 16 around 11 p.m., just before reggae act Eek-AMouse was to perform. The San Diego Fire-Rescue Department determined in an investigation that it was a grease fire. None of the 650 patrons at Canes was injured. “It was a kitchen fire. It started in the kitchen and it went up through the duct work, which is a flue that goes from the kitchen up to our exhaust,” Leitstein said. “The fire got hot and it caught on to the roof a little bit.” Fire and rescue officials estimated damages at $1.5 million to the structure and $500,000 to its contents. Department spokesman Maurice Luque said about one-third of the roof was destroyed and parts of the building suffered substantial water damage. ■

done before,” Margolis said, regarding the onstage flamenco performance. “There’s never been a production where Spanish [musicians] performed in the U.S. with an American rock band for a stage production.” Tyree said the lives of Ocampo and Margolis parallel parts of “Spanish Day’s” plot. “It’s neat because the show’s composer and Ocampo fell in love,” Tyree said. “A lot of my experiences came from Spain,” Margolis said, adding that both he and Ocampo grew up in the United States, but the now-married couple met in Seville. “We both went to Seville, Spain on our own for flamenco, and we met there.” Ocampo and Sir Sultry spent the past two years creating the opera, which will tour throughout American cities. “‘Spanish Day’… is the brainchild of [Sir Sultry]. It is the story of Michael Miller, a young boy from a troubled musician’s household who escapes to Spain and discovers the exotic world of Gypsy Flamenco,” the troop’s Website reads. Sir Sultry includes frontman Ethan Sultry, Eric Miller, Kevin Freeby, Marc Jozefowicz and Kenny Margolis. The band is described as “flamenco rhythms combined with Santana-esque electric guitar riffs, jazz harmony bass.” Calvin and Hobbes creator Bill Watterson added artwork to the production, depicting characters in a woodcut-type media, Tyree said.
La Jollan Cihtli Ocampo will perform as part of the flamenco rock opera “Spanish Day,” July 25 at the JCC’s Garfield Theatre, 4126 Executive Drive.
In addition to Arte y Pureza, flamenco dancers including Jose el Oruco and Javier Heredia star in “Spanish Day.” Alegria Sanchez sings the wedding song of Angela, according to the group’s Website, describing her as a young Gypsy from Seville. Sanchez also sings a lullaby.

The Coffee Shop he and his wife, Cathy, founded in 1960 remains a landmark in downtown La Jolla and is carried on by sons Harry III and John, along with daughter Liz. At Harry’s two-hour funeral Mass, an overflow gathering of family and friends heard Father Rafferty say, “This is the closest to a state funeral that La Jolla has ever seen.” Harry III, John and Liz paid a touching tribute to their devoted dad. Harry Jr. opened his shop early every morning, later circulated among his customers, greeting each with a warm handshake. At the rear of the restaurant the King held his court, listening to those who asked for advice. He emphasized learning how to talk to people. I have been blessed to have had Harry as a good friend these past 25 years. I was overwhelmed when Liz gave me a tight hug and said, “Thanks, Elliot, for being a member of our family.” Harry can never be replaced. I will miss him always.

The sea is their home, and always was. It’s high time we cut our losses and leave nature alone. Some things, like nature, we cannot control, and it is futile to try. (insert serenity prayer.) There’s not enough parking over there anyway. And who doesn’t enjoy eyeballing all the slimy seals from the sea wall? It’s an attraction and rare spectacle in and of itself. Ben Harness Point Loma

Pilot flies friendly skies, loses license The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has ruled that a helicopter pilot who was videotaped receiving oral sex from a woman as he flew her around San Diego acted so recklessly that his license must be revoked. The actions of David Martz were so dangerous, the NTSB concluded in a written ruling, that they put everyone on his craft and on the ground below him in danger. The incident occurred in 2005, but action wasn’t taken until after the video surfaced on the Internet.

At the conclusion of the Fourth of July fireworks celebration at the Ocean Beach Pier, something happened that led OB resident Chris Bowd to be knocked unconscious. Bowd remains in a medically induced coma, according to reports, and friends and family are struggling for answers. The case has left many baffled and, to some degree, brings into focus the issue of safety in Ocean Beach during the Fourth of July holiday. A post on the OB Rag blog by Frank Gormlie on July 8 first reported the Bowd incident. OB Rag has been tracking the situation ever since, with more than 55 comments from community members and friends of Bowd, offering support for his family and trying to gain any information. Thus far, no definitive information has surfaced. According to Gormlie, Bowd is in an induced coma — unconscious, but stable and under heavy sedation as of July 15. Bowd, 40, has lived in OB for four or five years and is an assistant research scientist at the University of California, San Diego’s Hamilton Glaucoma Center in La Jolla. According to San Diego Police Department (SDPD) officials, dispatchers received a call on July 4 at about 11 p.m. from a citizen saying he encountered an unconscious man on the 1800 block of Bacon Street. Police and paramedics responded to the call and attended to Bowd. Police spokesperson Mónica Muñoz said Bowd smelled of alcohol and police on the scene

thought he had fallen and injured himself. On July 7, a friend of Bowd’s contacted SDPD’s Western Division to see if authorities were doing an investigation. Police officials said they were unaware of the situation and assigned a detective to handle it. The detective has asked questions of Bowd’s girlfriend — who police are not identifying — because she reportedly was the last person to have known Bowd who could have seen what happened that night. Because the girlfriend was apparently not with Bowd at the time of the incident, according to a blog note by Gormlie, the interview shed little light on the case. Investigators said they have determined that Bowd was not robbed but that they are still puzzled as to what caused his injury. “So far, it’s a big mystery,” Muñoz
said. “But, of course, we are still investigating and interested in information.” Anyone with information associated with the case is encouraged to call Western Division at (619) 6924800 or San Diego County Crime Stoppers at (858) 580-8477. There is a reward of up to $1,000 for information and callers can remain anonymous. This Bowd case might illustrate the growing concern some residents are now expressing on the OB Rag blog about safety in the immediate vicinity of the beach on the Fourth of July following the fireworks show. An event that follows the show — the time during which Bowd was reportedly injured — is the traditional marshmallow fight. The marshmallow fight began in 1985 as a friendly rivalry between the Grosch and Zounes families, who hosted rival Fourth of July holiday parties in Ocean Beach. Grosch lived on Saratoga Avenue and Zounes lived on Muir Avenue. Grosch told the Peninsula Beacon in 2002 that his friends and family from Saratoga Avenue were
sitting near Tower Two on Ocean Beach, ready to roast marshmallows, when they found a better use for them. They threw marshmallows at the Zounes party down the beach. A year later, Grosch moved to Muir Avenue near Zounes, and the Muirs got their revenge with a new onslaught of marshmallows. The marshmallow fight has been a post-fireworks tradition in Ocean Beach ever since. Over the years, however, there is growing concern that the marshmallow fight has escalated out of control. Ocean Beach MainStreet Association executive director Denny Knox said the event should probably be scaled back a little bit. “Every year it’s different — it depends who the players are,” Knox said. “I think they’re going to have to police themselves a little more carefully and agree to take it down a couple of notches.” It is unclear whether security measures may be stepped up following the OB Fourth of July fireworks celebration and ensuing marshmallow fight as a result of the Bowd case. Ocean Beach MainStreet Association, the business improvement district, puts on the fireworks show and Knox said there are no immediate plans to do so. “We’re not going to take any steps until we find out what actually happened, because then we’re trying to solve a problem and we don’t know what the problem really is,” Knox said. “Until we know more, I don’t see us coming up with anything.” ■

What they did on their 1930 summer vacation BY CAROL OLTEN
The summer of 1930 was a particularly adventurous one for three young La Jolla men. It included a visit to the Imperial Palace and the Forbidden City in Peking, climbing Mt. Fuji, a tour of Confucius’ Temple in Peiping and taking in any number of odd sights in Manchuria, Korea, Japan and Hawaii. Their adventures were features of a “Hands Across the Pacific” tour sponsored by the California State YMCA. The La Jolla youths going on the long summer journey to the Far East were Bob Larimer, Jack Haskell and Joe Gunsaulus — all members of the local Y. While the trip no doubt was memorable to all involved, it was particularly so to Gunsaulus, who kept a comprehensive account of the voyage and sights, recording events and details in a large scrapbook upon his return to the family home on Ludington Place. (Gunsaulus later pursued a lifetime career as a landscape architect in La Jolla.) His scrapbook was recently accessioned by the La Jolla Historical Society as a gift to be added to the archives from an anonymous donor. It includes personal photographs, postcards and numerous pieces of memorabilia including ships’ menus, hotel brochures, maps and printed instruction pamphlets about how to properly conduct oneself in the Orient. All PHOTO COURTESY LA JOLLA HISTORICAL SOCIETY are particularly vivid reminders of how far the Far East was in the YMCA group climbs Mt. Fuji in the summer of 1930.
... the photographs reflect a genuine political innocence. summer of 1930. Joining a group of about a dozen YMCA members from around the state, the young men sailed from the San Pedro harbor June 9, 1930, on board the NYK liner SS Taiyo Maru. They returned home Aug. 25, 1930, aboard the SS Chichibu Mara, also docking in San Pedro. Arriving and ending their Far Eastern trip in Yokohama, Japan, they traveled through the Orient primarily on trains. Among the major cities visited were Seoul, Osaka, Tokyo, Peiping, Shanghai and Kobe. Stops along the way included schools, cultural institutions and department stores — besides all of the celebrated landmarks such as the Imperial Palace. Gunsaulus took black-andwhite snapshots throughout the trip and pasted them in the scrapbook for posterity using the proverbial album black corners. Often, he recorded a Far East that seemed isolated, serene and rural — ancient mountain temples and bridges shrouded in mist, in Tokyo a coolie in the rain with a rickshaw, magnificent waterfalls,
sunrise over Mt. Fuji, a deserted street in Peiping, Chinese fishing junks gliding quietly off Tsingtao and sacred Japanese deer grazing at the zoo in Nara. Although only 12 years separate the photographs from the conflagrations of World War II, the photographs reflect a genuine political innocence. Groups of school children wave U.S. flags, delegations greet each other with both Americans and Japanese in kimonos and the U. S. Navy Asiatic fleet floats peacefully in the waters off northern China. Ostensibly, the 1930 YMCA tour was undertaken to spread goodwill among people of many countries. Participants were advised to study the culture, history and social and economic life of each of the places to be visited before the tour. Upon returning they were encouraged by the Y to share their experiences with fellow countrymen, which Gunsaulus chose to do by putting together his scrapbook — for friends to enjoy in 1930 and in the present day for posterity. Items reproduced from the scrapbook will be included in an exhibit this summer at the La Jolla Historical Society. — “Reflections” is a monthly column written for the La Jolla Village News by the La Jolla Historical Society’s historian Carol Olten.

Three plays share magic at Old Globe BY CHARLENE BALDRIDGE | VILLAGE NEWS
Aside from the fact that they make up the Old Globe’s 2009 Shakespeare Festival, William Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night” and “Coriolanus” and Edmond Rostand’s “Cyrano de Bergerac” appear to have little in common other than all are big shows and play exceptionally well outdoors. What they do have in common, however, is magic. Resident artistic director Darko Tresnjak stages “Coriolanus” and “Cyrano,” each of which presents a fascinating protagonist — one cocksure and the other not so, except when dueling or writing verse. Festival newcomer Greg Derelian portrays the warrior Coriolanus, who returns heroic from battle but is not the statesman his mother wishes him to be. The versatile Patrick Page, previously seen at the Globe in “The Pleasure of His Company” and “Dancing in the Dark” (San Diego Theatre Critics Award), plays Cyrano, whose bulbous nose, at least in his mind, makes him unfit for the love of the beautiful Roxane. Page also portrays the overweening servant, Malvolio, a man entirely different from Cyrano, in “Twelfth Night.” Lest one think the men are having all the fun this season, veteran director Paul Mullins stages Shakespeare’s romantic comedy “Twelfth Night,” which has three meaty women’s roles: the shipwrecked Viola (Dana Green, also Roxane in “Cyrano”), the noblewoman Olivia and the fun-loving household attendant Maria. Other than uniformity of excellence, what the three productions have in common is a 26-member core company of fine actors — 12 Equity and 14 USD/Globe MFA students — perfectly cast and directed, who bring each play to life all summer long. Some are veterans of as many as four festival seasons. Moreover, design and musical elements are extraordinary this year. The three classic works play in rotating repertory through Sept. 27. Repertory is a glorious thing for actors and playgoers alike. It allows the actors to “stretch,” portraying contrasting roles in the space of a week (yes, they relish learning all those lines). Those sitting in the dark are challenged to realize that

the disarming actor of one play is so devious in the next. For instance, Bruce Turk twirls his mustachios as the lecherous Comte de Guiche in “Cyrano,” and in contrast turns in deliciously physical comedy as Sir Andrew Aguecheek, the
gauche houseguest in “Twelfth Night.” Celeste Ciulla plays a small role in “Cyrano,” then breaks our hearts with a profound Volumnia, Coriolanus’ mother in “Coriolanus.” Heard on the street: “Have you seen the Globe’s festival season yet?” “Yes, I’ve seen all three.” “Which is the best?” “‘Cyrano.’” Ask someone else and there’s bound to be a different answer. There might be dueling in the streets and coffeehouses, but it all depends upon which genre one prefers, classic action

ARTSbriefs Art Academy takes up residence in North Park The Art Academy of San Diego, for 11 years a staple educational institution in East Village, has moved to North Park following stagnant enrollment that the school’s founder blames on the construction of Petco Park. The school’s new 2,500-squarefoot digs, at 3784 30th St., translate to a 75 percent cut in overhead. Founder Stuart Burton hailed this, citing North Park as a more user-friendly area. Since January alone, the school has accepted about 130 students; enrollment never exceeded 250 in the decade the school was located at 840 G St., about three blocks north of the ballpark.
Several smaller East Village galleries were impacted by the ballpark’s construction, which began in 2000; many closed, and the academy’s efforts to attract patronage through several afterhours events at area businesses failed. It cost about $120,000 to run the school annually. The private school offers more than 60 classes and workshops for all visual-arts experience levels.

As with any classic farce, Sean Fanning’s set for Cygnet Theatre’s production of Michael Frayn’s “Noises Off” has seven doors, all of which slam frequently. The production also features an array of eccentric and egocentric characters, played by actors adept at the subtleties of physical comedy, which is a good thing, because pratfalls abound. Master orchestrator of the popular English countryside farce is Cygnet artistic director Sean Murray. The production opens Cygnet’s 2009-10 season, its first at the Old Town Theatre. Those familiar with the work know that “Noises Off” provides a backstage view of onstage misfortunes. A theatrical troupe rehearses for a dreadful farce titled “Nothing On,” for which the actors are ill-prepared. Their director (excellent newcomer Albert Dayan) is simultaneously staging “Richard III” elsewhere. He’s cast his ditzy current mistress (Jessica John) in the ingénue role, while his pregnant former mistress (Kim Strassburger) is the stage manager. Add to these a second inept stage manager (Jason Connors), a petulant leading lady (Rosina Reynolds) playing the role of the maid, and two couples (Sandy Campbell and Craig Huisenga and Jason Heil and John) intent on using the country home as a trysting place. Every party, even the burglar (Jonathan McMurtry), thinks themselves the only ones in the home, and for a time, due to split-

second timing and slamming of doors, it appears to be so. We see Act I three times, once in rehearsal (from the audience’s view), once as the show has opened (backstage), and once just before its scheduled closing (again from the audience), after a tour of the provinces. Each time, backstage backbiting makes matters worse and the performances grow more and more disastrous. The company deserves endurance awards, all. George Ye makes all possible with his stunt choreography, which on opening night July 11 included Heil’s magnificent tumble down the stairs. Also wondrous are Connors’ rubber-bodied nervous tics, and one unscheduled pratfall (oh, my, those sardines get slippery) and
recovery with no apparent injury. Corey Johnston’s costumes are outstanding, especially John’s “small clothes,” and Peter Herman’s wigs play roles of their own. Sound and lighting are excellently handled by Matt Lescault-Wood and Eric Lotze. Bonnie L. Durben’s props are marvelous. Expect to laugh yourself silly. This is just what we need right here, right now. “Noises Off” continues through Aug. 23, at 7:30 p.m. Wednesdays and Thursdays, 8 p.m. Fridays, 2 and 8 p.m. Saturdays, and 2 and 7 p.m. Sundays at the Old Town Theatre, 4040 Twiggs St. For tickets ($17-$46) and information, visit www.cygnettheatre.com or call (619) 337-1525. ■

Party animals! Midnight at the Oasis, aka The Ritz, became San Diego central for the night as the city converged for a spectacular evening at the zoo. Guests were greeted upon arrival by animals and birds who flocked together to lend their colorful vestments to the occasion. Koala bears clung to tree limbs, macaws clustered on foliage, camels and even a porcupine on a leash strode the grounds as champagne circulated and foods of every description sent their aromas into the warm night air. Auction items abounded for things available as close as dining in La Jolla to trips as far away as Australia and every destination in between. The dinner crowd walked past an array of barechested fellows in fezzes and undulating belly dancers into a glittering Hollywood set, with stars overhead and stunning murals on the surrounding walls. Tables were set with multicolored fabrics and spangled scarves sewn with jingling coins to feed the fantasies. Proceeds from the evening’s event were to benefit a new Asian Forest Habitat at the Wild Animal Park, which would be a home for tigers, birds and binturongs, but guests were encouraged to donate, via the auction, to Project Elephant Footprint, which helps protect, track, study and conserve wild elephants. All in all, it was a magical evening.

Rare coastal habitat in OB needs help BY ANTHONY GENTILE | VILLAGE NEWS
Ocean Beach and Mission Bay residents have a rare coastal dune and intertidal wetland habitat in their backyard. On Saturday, July 25, environmental enthusiasts will get the chance to help clean it up and preserve it. The San Diego River Park Foundation (SDRPF) is holding its bimonthly Friends of the River Mouth event at the habitat site, located near Dog Beach, from 9 a.m. to noon. The project will feature a work party to help preserve and restore the nearly 20-acre area. “This is the jewel at the end of the trail because we have the beach, the dog-friendly area, and it’s a park,” SDRPF program manager Richard Dhu said. The site is among the remaining 5 percent of California’s coastal dune, wetlands and intertidal zones. Among the many native species of plants and animals that inhabit the site, the federally endangered California least tern makes its nest there. “The least tern can only reproduce in these dune habitat areas,” Dhu said. “Because of the
shrinking of these areas, there’s less of an opportunity for these birds to reproduce.” For the nature nostalgic, the site also provides a bit of a throwback. Small, rolling dunes

number of species, maintain the water quality of the coast, protect the wetlands, control erosion, act as a flood buffer and circulate waste and nutrients into the ocean as part of the water system. The habitat is also a stop for birds along the Pacific Flyway as they migrate from Mexico to Alaska and is home to a number of unique native plants. “Some of the plants you find here you really don’t find anywhere else, because they’re only accustomed to a coastal area like this,” Dhu said. Native plants include coastal sage scrub, bladderpod, California sunflower, salvia, beach ambrosia, beach primrose, datura and sea lavender. A large part of Saturday’s effort will go toward the removal on nonnative invasive plants such as ice plant and crown daisies, which offer no environmental benefit and have taken over the habitat. “Going through and really keeping the invasives at bay is a big project here, to allow the natives to flourish and not be SEE HELP, Page 18

Easy to grow in both the garden and in containers, chilis are an attractive addition to the landscape with their shiny green leaves and brightly colored fruit. Last season, a second crop of habanero chilis in my garden was still hanging on their branches in October and resembled tiny pumpkins. I love to use habaneros in a Jamaican jerk-

Chili peppers are believed to have originated in South America and have been grown there for medicinal purposes as well as a food spice for thousands of years. While exploring South America, Christopher Columbus discovered the spicy chilis and brought the dried peppers and their seeds back to Europe, where their popularity spread. SEE PEPPERS, Page 16

Showrooms disappear as used cars take spotlight BY JOHNNY MCDONALD | VILLAGE NEWS
Since buyers are shunning showrooms for the lots, the world of pre-owned automobile searches becomes more than just a kick of a few tires. Glitzy showrooms are disappearing anyway as General Motors and Chrysler eliminate 2,000 dealerships. Ready, set and prepare for the hassle-free, no-obligation pitches. Before you reach for the keys, listen to: Unbelievable prices. Close to new... low mileage. No credit? No problem. Fast approval. Complete service provided. Or the cliché, “A little old lady owned it and only drove to the store.” High-quality used cars may be a coveted and rare commodity, as the auto industries attempt to meet federal government commitments. According to Auto Data Corp., sales of certified preowned cars in January 2009 were up 10 percent from the previous year. But used car prices are up 5 to 15 percent since Jan. 1. People who bought used cars last August can usually resell them — provided the tires are good — for 10 to 30 percent more than they originally paid, and they will have had six months’ driving free. In almost every deal, rubber is the key price factor. Used cars with extra-good tires bring $50 to $100 extra; cars with worn ones may not be wanted at

Quipped a Detroit Ford dealer: “You would think this salesroom was a mosque to see all those guys down on their hands and knees looking at tires.” As a general rule, the average consumer would trade in a car after two to three years, thus providing a steady supply of lowmileage used cars. Under current household budget and credit restraints, drivers might be hanging onto their cars longer and returning them when they’re nearing the junk age. Overall, the most reliable vehicles come from Asian nameplates, according to Consumer Reports data. Though domestic cars are getting better, they still trail the Japanese models. Euro-
pean models are also improving, but the older ones tend to be among the most problematic. Buying a reliable three-yearold model could be a good investment since the steepest part of the depreciation curve is past. ConsumerReports.org respondents reveal that problem rates for cars have decreased across the board, so newer used cars should hold up better than their predecessors as they age. Among 5-year-old and newer cars, Ford, Hyundai and Nissan are about tied in reliability. European cars, long the least reliable overall, are pulling even with the domestics on newer models.

THURSDAY · JULY 23, 2009 LA JOLLA VILLAGE NEWS
Budgets spur requests for ‘green’ materials Real estate showed signs of recovery in the first quarter -- and even with a global recession lingering on, environmentally responsible options and upgrades are still in demand. Last year, according to the most recent data, the nation's 'green' residential building market was estimated to be 6 to 10 percent of the conventional residential market, an 8 percent increase over the year before. By 2012, these numbers are expected to double to reach 12 to 20 percent market share, all of which represents a green building industry worth
from $40 to $70 billion. These days, however, the green motive may be less to do with cleaning up the planet, as it is to immediately reduce one's cost of living. Concrete, instead of traditional building methods, for public buildings and homes is far stronger, more efficient, and healthier -- and it does not deplete our forests of natural resources. This greener method builds the walls to the roof with a form that has two layers of polystyrene and is then steel reinforced and filled with concrete. It cuts down construction time
significantly, creates less waste material, and it virtually eliminates mould, mildew, and other toxic emissions that are associated with traditional building methods. The homeowner saves immediately, due to durability and energy efficiency and with a potential to reduce energy costs by up to 70 percent. Better still, the entire structure is reported to be up to nine times stronger, with far more fire protection, far more sound insulation, all of which leads to very promising equity growth for resale. Green construction options pay off swiftly and permanently.

Chilis can burn your skin and eyes, and it is recommended you wear rubber gloves when handling them. Remember not to touch your skin, face or eyes while working with chilis. Try this great party appetizer after you harvest your chilis. The amount of heat can be adjusted to your taste by adding more or fewer jalapenos and chipotle powder.
CONTINUED FROM Page 13
Part of the Solanaceae or nightshade family that includes tomatoes, bell peppers, eggplants and potatoes, the chili pepper gets its fire from the high level of the alkaloid chemical capsaicin. The concentration of heat in the chili is found in its interior veins and in seeds. The seeds become hot because they sit on top of the veins and absorb the capsaicin. By removing the veins and seeds, you can control some of the pepper’s heat. Summer is a good time to find chili pepper plants at your local nurseries. Chilis like dry hot weather and welldrained soil and will thrive in a sunny part of your garden with little care and water. Capsaicin, the chemical that makes them hot, can also act as a natural pesticide and will deter insects from feasting on the plant’s fruit. Spider mites can invade the plant’s leaves, but on warm sunny days a good squirt from the hose can keep an infestation from occurring. Some believe that planting chilis among your other plants will cut down on insect infestation in general. If you decide to plant your chili peppers in pots, use an organic potting soil and let the plants dry out a little in between watering. Chilis like magnesium, and a little Epsom salts added at planting time will help your plants to thrive. After they blossom, give them a balanced organic fertilizer, one recommended for vegetables, and repeat after about two to three weeks. Most chilis can be harvested green, or you can wait until the full color develops, which will intensify their heat and flavor. Fully ripened chilis will range in colors from yellow, orange and bright fire-engine red. As you pick them, your plants will reward you by producing more. Fresh chilis are hotter than cooked or roasted ones, and if you dry them, they
Serrano chilis are some of the hottest, second only to habanero and Scotch bonnet.
could be as much as ten times hotter than when they were fresh. Whole chilis can be roasted over an open fire on the grill. After they char, place them in a paper bag or a bowl covered with plastic wrap and let them sweat for about 10 minutes. After doing this, the outer skin can be removed, and you can open the chilis and remove the seeds and as much of their veins you wish. Filled with antioxidants and vitamins A, C and B 1-3, chilis are a healthful way to add a little kick to your food. Chili peppers can range in size from approximately one-quarter of an inch to around 12 inches long. A general rule is the smaller the chili, the hotter the flavor. There are many different chilis to choose from that have a wide range of heat. Here are a few varieties you can usually find at local nurseries: mild – Anaheim, poblano and ancho; medium hot — pasilla and jalapeno; hot — Serrano, cayenne and Thai; very, very hot (get out the fire extinguisher!) — habanero and Scotch bonnet.

well as others who have tried to describe an ethereal condition. The professor and his associates have studied one book, “Successful Aging,” written by Rowe and Kahn in 1987. They detailed 29 definitions of aging through as many studies on the subject. Theories differ on the being able to pinpoint specific subjective qualities. Surprisingly, only about 20 percent of the aging process is linked to genetics, with at a minimum 70 percent the result of one’s lifestyle. And lifespan always involves “tradeoffs.” Making good choices are the ones that extend life. Depp suggests the following: • Exercise for at least 30 minutes daily (a simple walk is sufficient). • Strength training two to four times a week, best with alternate days. • Flexibility (stretching before and after exercising). • Practice brain fitness as well as physical (many programs to pick). • Avoid depressing thoughts, situations and people. • Social integration as well as sufficient time spent alone. Another surprising conclusion was that stress, usually considered a negative, can be turned over, like a coin, and used like a mild dose or vaccine to strengthen the system. Muscle training, if done correctly, uses this same principle. The last and possibly the most important element is attitude. With a healthful attitude, the body becomes and stays healthier. Among the increasing numbers of centenarians who are still productive, the one trait they all exhibit is a positive outlook toward most situations. — Mera Kelley is a gerontologist and La Jolla resisdent. ■

Here’s what’s in store for the movie fan in the not-too-distant future from Roadside Attractions film company. “Shrink” returns Kevin Spacey to the screen after a long stint with the theater in London. Spacey plays Henry Carter, a psychiatrist with an A-list of clients in Hollywood. What happens when the people who are supposed to hold the fragile souls together are themselves falling apart? His clients include a once-famous actress (Saffron Burrows), an insecure writer (Mark Webber) and a comically obsessive super-agent (Dallas Roberts). The film is tart and funny and ultimately an uplifting dramatic look at people who are worse off than we are, yet they are on top of the world in Hollywood. Author Gore Vidal plays a part along with Robert Loggia and Laura Ramsey. Directed by Jonas Pate.

“The September Issue” takes a look behind the scenes of fashion editor Anna Wintour’s Vogue Magazine’s September issue. She has never allowed anyone to scrutinize the inner workings of her magazine after 20 years as the leading fashion editor. It’s a tradition that every August millions of people await the September issue of the fashion bible. Last year it was the biggest ever, weighing in at four pounds and selling 13 million copies. Until now, nobody was allowed behind the closed doors of the New York office, where the issues are put together in secrecy. We see the passion it takes to create a magazine that is the leader in fashion circles. We go behind the scenes at Fashion Week as well as to Europe and all the fashion shoots. It’s an entertaining, arduous and emo-
tionally draining process. At the heart of the magazine is the 20-year relationship between editor Wintour and creative director Grace Coddington. The two women are perfectly matched as curator and creator. It is through the genius of these magical women that they, and Vogue, remain at the top of the fashion field. “Happy Tears” reveals the inner emotions of a family in transition. Sisters Jayne (Parker Posey) and Laura (Demi Moore) are about to take on a man they may not be able to handle — their father Joe (Rip Torn). He’s in his 70s and possibly going into senility, but he still sings and plays the blues on his beloved guitar. There’s even a lady friend (Ellen Barkin) who stops by to see him. But Jayne and Laura

With Christian Camargo. “The Stoning of Saroya M.” would be hard to swallow if it weren’t a true story. It’s a heartrending film based on the bestselling book by French-Iranian journalist Freidoune Sahebjam. It dramatizes the suffering endured by one Islamic woman (Mozhan Marno) in the name of religious custom and the heroism of another woman (Oscar nominee Shohreh Aghdashloo) who was determined to share her story with the world. The film is riveting and unforgettable and comes to a crescendo at the end. James Caviezel (“The Thin Red Line”) co-stars. ■

The high-wire act of life You swing gently on your trapeze somewhere near the top of the circus tent. It’s comfortable and secure, and then you see the next trapeze hurtling towards you. As you gauge the time and the distance, you have to decide when the appropriate moment will come for you to leave the safe bar you’re hanging from and leap into the void, arms outstretched to grasp the empty bar as it swings toward you. While you’re hurtling through the void, that moment between the two trapezes, that moment when you could either fall and hurt yourself or grasp the bar and haul yourself onto it for another safe and secure time — in that moment you’re in transition. If you stay too long on your comfortable trapeze you will become sedentary, fat, bored and eventually depressed. So, at some point you will have to make the leap. We all have hurled ourselves into outer space, into unknown territories, every time we have changed jobs, gotten married or divorced, experienced the death of a loved one, given birth to a child, started a relationship, moved to a new location or changed a lifestyle. But as we grow older, we tend to hang on to the more familiar. It becomes more of an effort to let go of one’s trapeze in order to catch the next one. We are less confident of flying through the air, of living in that time, of transition, and of leaving the known to explore the unknown. We are indeed less nimble, less resilient,
more attached to the old ways. Yet our salvation is to keep jumping, arms outstretched into the new — yes, our salvation against aging brains, stiff bodies, dull routines, unsatisfying relationships and diminished lives. It’s imperative for us all, as we go through life’s stages, to be unafraid of transition, that nowhere place we find ourselves as we leave the familiar and are not yet acquainted with the unfamiliar. As I am advancing further and further into older age, I must change my life from working to volunteering, from living with easily satisfied young grandchildren to more-difficult-to-understand teenagers and young adults, from demanding adventure travel to cruise ships, from eating anything and everything to

state doesn’t have a Ms. Senior pageant,” Jones said, adding that she recently directed Ms. Senior San Diego. “The oldest woman I ever competed against was a woman who was 80; she was a tap dancer.

being careful about correct nutrition, from having parents to not having any older relatives left and getting to know better the sometimes neglected younger cousins. There are both unavoidable losses and newfound gains. As we grow older we must become more aware of the changes we need to make in our lifestyles. The over-85 group is the fastest-growing segment of our population. When the baby boomers enter their senior years, one in five Americans will be over 65. If we want to age healthfully and productively, we absolutely must exercise our bodies and our minds. Successful aging is determined by lifestyle choices more than by heredity. So get out and walk every day; do strength training, which means weight-bearing exercise;
do a daily stretching routine; eat your fruits, vegetables and whole grains; use low-fat dairy products; go easy on meats, fats and sweets. Find interesting friends to spend time with. Learn something new — the more difficult, the more your brain will grow new synapses. And most of all, have fun. I send and get jokes every day on my e-mail, so I start my mornings by chuckling. Laughter is good for our immune system. Volunteering has also
been shown to improve the immune system and increase longevity. So, get out in your community and be helpful. In other words, leave your trapeze and jump to grasp the next one. Even if you fall at first, there is always a safety net you can bounce back up from. Keep moving your body and expanding your mind and you’ll fly through the air with the greatest of ease, the daring old person on the flying trapeze. ■
America title during a national pageant Oct. 4 through 10. “This is good for older women because they do their volunteer work and they help out with the family, but this is for them,” Jones said. Jones started competing in pageants around 2007, she said. Although she lives in UC, she said senior women could compete in area pageants, including Orange County’s. “I competed in a couple of pageants back then, and I came in fourth in the first one but I knew nothing,” Jones said, looking at photos from her first competition held at a senior center that show how far she’s come. “I was very
naïve and I can’t believe the dress I wore. “It was in a senior center. It wasn’t a very good stage and I was scared to death. And now I see the ladies who do it for the first time — they’re backstage nervous and almost throwing up, but they never say ‘forget it,’ they always say, ‘OK, let’s go for it.’” Jones said standing and speaking to an audience has inspired self-confidence. “I had no problem modeling in front of people but I had to learn to speak,” she said, adding that she concentrated on hiding her British accent. Now, Jones choreographs Polynesian dances, which she uses dur-
ing the pageant’s talent portion. “I did a patriotic [Polynesian] dance to ‘God Bless the USA,’” Jones said. “I do my own choreography.” Jones said she is preparing for the Ms. Senior California pageant. “The first three winners go on to compete in the state pageant and then to Ms. Senior America pageant, so yes, I’m going to compete in the state pageant. It gets tough when you get to that level,” Jones said. “Timing is everything. If you go over, you lose a lot of points.” For more information about the Ms. Senior California Pageant, visit www.mssrcalifornia.com. ■

The Aging Family Member For the last two months, we have been offering recommendations to help the family member understand their aging parent and how you can help them. This month we will discuss: Discourage ageist attitudes. Simply put, ageism is prejudice against the elderly. It exists in many forms but can be particularly damaging to an older person’s self-esteem when it assumes that all of their woes are age-related. Remind yourself that by chalking up everything that ails your parent to their age, you sell your parent short. If they are depressed, it may have nothing to do with the fact that they’re 80 and everything to do with a biological predisposition to depression. And remember that right-knee pain in a 90 year-old can’t just be age if there’s no problem with their left knee. Strive to maximize your parent’s quality of life. No matter our age, we all want to enjoy life to the fullest and have the capability to do the things we want to. Improving the enjoyment of life and a parent’s function ability are the cardinal goals of a geriatric care manager and the RN Case Managers at Innovative Healthcare are ready to help. Call Innovative Healthcare Consultants today at (877) 731-1442 or visit our website at www.innovativehc.com for more information.
overtaken by invasive plants,” Dhu said. Dhu said he expects about 50 volunteers for the event. Volunteers will remove invasive plants, clean interpretive signage set up in the area, remove trash and make sure the trails in the area are clearly lined. Volunteers will also learn about the habitat during the project. “We’ll do educational tours and talk about the importance of dune habitats and our wetlands and make it a meaningful experience by allowing people to see why we are here and why we are doing this,” Dhu said. SDRPF is a nonprofit organization founded in 2001. It holds six to seven events per month — ranging from water testing to mural projects — as part of the SDRPF’s overall vision to create a system of connected parks along the 52 miles of the San Diego River from the ocean to the mountains near Julian. “It’s about connecting people to the river, using the river as a focus rather than something to turn your back on,” Dhu said. “It also allows for outdoor recreation and critical wildlife habitat linkages. It’s kind of an urban interface with the wild.” Gloves, tools and snacks will be provided by the SDRPF during Saturday’s restoration event.
