City starts projects countdown BY ANTHONY GENTILE | VILLAGE NEWS

City officials broke ground last week on improvements to the broken La Playa storm drain — the first of 100 City Council-approved projects aimed at restoring San Diego’s streets and public facilities.

“The La Playa storm drains are examples of repairs our city has needed for years but have not been completed — until now,” said District 2 Councilman Kevin Faulconer. “This is good for the environment and good for the Peninsula.” Faulconer and Mayor Jerry

Sanders were among city officials and members of the public on hand to celebrate the first of a group of projects that, according to the mayor’s office, are funded by a $103 million private bond that closed in the SEE COUNTDOWN, Page 2

spring. The City Council approved the list of projects last month. “The financial reforms we have made have enabled the city to restore its credit ratings and helped to secure bonds at favorable interest rates to pay for projects like these, saving millions of taxpayers’ dollars,” Faulconer said. “These projects will put San Diegans back to work and improve our neighborhoods.” According to the mayor’s office, the collapsed La Playa storm drain was causing erosion and was a safety hazard. The drain, located near San Antonio Place, is one of two that leads into the San Diego Bay and one of 28 citywide that are slated for repair under the program. “Repairing crumbling roads and completing long-overdue repairs on libraries and firehouses in our communities is a high priority for San Diegans,” Sanders said. The list of projects includes resurfacing 150 miles of city streets, repairing or replacing roofs at 21 libraries, park facilities and police and fire stations, and construction of three new lifeguard stations. According to the mayor’s office, officials will also repair plumbing, electrical, windows, doors and heating and cooling systems at dozens of public facilities. ■

Flush with frustration Filner vows to fight Coastal Commission’s rejection of waiver for PL wastewater plant BY ANTHONY GENTILE | VILLAGE NEWS

In response to the California Coastal Commission’s (CCC) surprising vote last week to deny the city a secondary-treatment waiver for the Point Loma Wastewater Treatment Plant, Rep. Bob Filner is vowing to put pressure on Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to overturn the decision. Filner responded to the Coastal Commission’s 8-1 vote with a letter dated Aug. 17, four days after the waiver was denied. “The Coastal Commission has again overstepped its authority in a blatant attempt to make a political statement rather than accept the scientific findings of the agencies responsible for water-quality

conditions,” Filner wrote to Schwarzenegger. On Aug. 13, the commissioners unexpectedly voted to deny the city’s request for a waiver that would allow the Point Loma Wastewater Treatment Plant to continue operating below the minimum federal environmental standards for pollution. The facility is the main treatment plant for the entire San Diego region and serves 2.2 million residents. Coastal Commission members apparently took exception to granting the third request for an exemption on a projected $1.5 billion secondary-treatment upgrade — the previous two waivers being granted in 1995 and 2002. Coastal Commission officials said San

Diego is now the lone California city that has not agreed to implement the stepped-up treatment level for wastewater discharged into the ocean. “The conclusion that the commissioners reached was that the continued disposal of primarytreated sewage into the marine environment is reducing biodiversity and biological productivity, which by definition makes it inconsistent with the state’s coastal management program,” CCC legislative director Sarah Christie said. Perhaps what was most surprising about the CCC’s decision was that it was contrary to a July 21 recommendation by its own staff to reissue the waiver. Those recommendations made last week’s hearing to approve or deny the waiver appear nothing more than a formality. “The commission has acted independently,” Christie said. “They’re always within their right to take an action independent of a staff recommendation. And if the city disagrees with that action, they have an appeal route through the secretary of commerce.” The denial of the waiver was also surprising because environmental groups San Diego Coastkeeper and Surfrider San Diego said they would not oppose the waiver. When the waiver was last put up for approval in 2002, both groups challenged the waiver and filed lawsuits against the city. “This go-round, we actually decided not to oppose the waiver,” San Diego Coastkeeper executive director Bruce Reznik said.

Access to the Point Loma Wastewater Treatment Plant is via a narrow, winding road along the cliffs, causing concern about chlorine tanker trucks that would VILLAGE NEWS | PAUL HANSEN deliver chlorine for secondary waste treatment.

“We worked cooperatively with the city, and we reached an agreement with them to undertake an approximately two-year comprehensive assessment of its sewage system to identify opportunities to maximize water reclamation.” Surfrider San Diego declined to oppose the waiver also on the condition that the city continues to study the reusing of the wastewater. “We told the city that we wouldn’t oppose the waiver, but that was based on their committing to study reusing wastewater toward the goal of zero or greatly reduced discharge,” Surfrider spokesman Ken David said. Reznik said the major reason San Diego Coastkeeper did not oppose the waiver is because secondary treatment doesn’t address what he called the fairly dire water situation in San Diego. “We shouldn’t be focusing on secondary, we should be focusing

beyond secondary, which is [to] minimize or even potentially eliminate all ocean discharge of sewage and reclaim as much or all of the water that is currently going out into the ocean to augment our local reservoirs and local drinking water supplies,” Reznik said. Christie said that as a result of the CCC denying the city’s request for a waiver, there will be another hearing in which the commission will need to provide revised findings to support its decision. While the CCC’s next meeting is scheduled for Sept. 9 in Eureka, no timetable has been set for the second hearing. The Point Loma Wastewater Treatment Plant has been open since 1963 and is located at 1902 Gatchell Road. According to the city, the facility treats about 175 million gallons of wastewater per day. The outfall pipe extends 4.5 miles into the ocean. ■

NEWS NEWSbriefs A.M. Rapist arrested in Illinois The man believed to be the socalled “A.M. Rapist” — a suspect thought responsible for a series of five burglaries and sexual assaults in Ocean Beach, Mission Beach and College West areas in 2000 and 2001 — was arrested near his home in Arlington Heights, Ill. on Aug. 11 according to police officials. Stephen D. Richardson, 33, was extradited to San Diego and faces numerous charges associated with the “A.M. Rapist” series. According to San Diego Police Department investigators, evidence was developed on July 22 that linked Richardson to a Sept. 2, 2000, sexual assault in Ocean Beach. The San Diego County District Attorney’s Office subsequently issued a warrant for his arrest. Detectives from the Sex Crime Unit worked with the Arlington Heights Police Department to arrest Richardson. At the time of his arrest, a DNA sample was obtained from Richardson that matched samples gathered at the scenes of all five cases in the series.

Man linked to threats against schools arrested A 39-year-old man is federal custody after he was arrested Aug. 5 near Shelter Island for allegedly making threats against two Coronado elementary schools through the internet. Paul Douglas Rodgers was arrested by San Diego Harbor Police and subsequently turned over to FBI agents at the George Bailey Detention Center. According to FBI officials, Rodgers allegedly posted a threat July 30 against the two schools on Craigslist’s San Diego site, saying “Coronado elementary schools to be destroyed” in October attacks were attended by children with parents in the military. In June, San Diego police contacted Rodgers in the vicinity of Shelter Island regarding a May post threatening a local elementary school. According to police reports, Rodgers admitted to making the posts and said he was subject to a mind-control experiment. When asked by police, Rodgers agreed to go to the county’s mental health for evaluation and was evaluated for eight days.

Innertubapalooza draws 3,000 floating drinkers BY SEBASTIAN RUIZ | VILLAGE NEWS

Sail Bay in north Mission Bay played host to an estimated 3,000 people dragging innertubes, rafts and floats into the water to legally drink a beer on the bay on Saturday, Aug. 9. The second year for the floating party, dubbed “Innertubapalooza 2009,” saw the crowd balloon from an estimated 1,500 people expected to attend to more than double, causing police and lifeguards to pay extra-close attention to safety issues. The flotilla also effectively circumvented the two-year-old ban on drinking on the beach and bay sands. The San Diego Police Department and lifeguards discovered the party a few days in advance, allowing some time to prepare, officials said. Police handed out approximately 50 citations and arrested six people while lifeguards had their hands full with approximately 18 water rescues, police and lifeguard authorities reported. Northern Division Capt. Shelley Zimmerman said the police department and lifeguards are working closely with the U.S. Coast Guard to monitor any similar future events. “While what they are doing, technically, is legal, we don’t advise people drinking and driving, drinking and swimming, drinking and boating or even drinking and floating,” Zimmerman said. It’s illegal to have an open alcoholic beverage container on the

sand but not on the water under certain conditions, Zimmerman said. All applicable laws including laws against public intoxication are still enforced. San Diego Lifeguard boating safety Lt. John Sandmeyer said the magnitude of the event forced lifeguards’ resources away from other parts of the beach and bay. A few accidents occurred throughout the day, including a woman who cut her hand on a stationary boat propeller and another woman who suffered injuries during a Jet Ski accident near the southern section of the Ingraham Street bridge, he said. Both victims were treated and taken to the hospital. “Most of the [extra] lifeguards were off duty,” Sandmeyer said. “It definitely peaked out for us and created a big deal.” He added that the floating party could also create a safety hazard by making it difficult for lifeguards to reach a person who needs help if they are in the middle of a large group of floats or

rafts. The floating party grew out of an annual summer party named Summerpalooza organized through social networking websites like Facebook and The Full Extension. The Full Extension social network boasts hundreds of members promoting a relaxed lifestyle reflected through summertime parties. Some of the party’s organizers live in the Mission and Pacific beach communities, said Phil, a Full Extension representative who helped organize the flotilla. Phil, who preferred not to publish his last name for professional and liability reasons, said the party was not an act of rebellion against the beach alcohol ban. “We’re not trying to stick it to the cops. We’re really just trying to get together and have fun,” Phil said. “Given what just happened, it came across as a party of rebelling against the alcohol ban, but we’re really just trying to celebrate what San Diego has: good weather and good times and good friends, laying back and being respectful of the environment.” Private events that serve alcohol at city parks, beaches and bays, such as the Old Mission Beach Athletic Club’s Over-theLine tournament, usually require the organization to go through the city’s special events permit process. But since drinking on the water does not violate the beach alcohol ordinance, the organization did not need or seek a special events permit, Phil said. Organizers said they will work with lifeguard and city officials for

An estimated 3,000 funseekers took to the waters of Mission Bay recently for "Innertubapalooza 2009," the second such event designed to let partiers drink legally just yards from the shoreline where alcohol has been banned. Police handed out about 50 citations and arrested six people, while lifeguards had their PHOTO COURTESY JEREMY MALECHA hands full with about 18 water rescues.

better organized future events. And at least a few neighbors didn’t seem to mind the thousands that floated along on the bay for Innertubapalooza 2009. Jon Cunningham, a two-year Pacific Beach resident and president of the Sail Bay Scene Homeowners Association, attended the event and said it was “totally relaxed.” “Everyone was having a really good time,” Cunningham said. “People have been drinking on the water for decades — that’s certainly nothing new.” He said the “responsible crowd” was more reserved than a typical bar on Garnet Avenue on a Saturday night, adding that lifeguards and police did a great job with the crowd. Cunningham has lived in San

Diego for more than 10 years and said he voted for Proposition D, the beach alcohol ban, in recent years. “I’m a dad of a 2-year-old,” Cunningham said. “As a homeowner, I’m in favor of upgrading the quality of the beach visitor and efforts to clean up the beach.” District 2 Councilman Kevin Faulconer could not be reached for comment. Faulconer helped push the beach alcohol ban through city council following a fight involving hundreds on the sands of Pacific Beach during Labor Day weekend in 2007. Tony Manolatos, spokesman for Faulconer’s office, said Faulconer received approximately three emails about the Sail Bay party but no calls. ■

NEWS Group stands up for park’s gophers BY ANTHONY GENTILE | VILLAGE NEWS

Gophers have made many enemies at Robb Field in Ocean Beach, burrowing and creating numerous holes on the park’s playing fields. The San Diegobased Animal Protection and Rescue League (APRL), however, is not among that list of enemies. APRL is urging the city to find a non-lethal method to control the gopher population at Robb Field. To combat the rodents, the city currently uses a weekly poison bait resembling seeds that gophers eat. The bait is placed in tunnels where gophers collect it and fatally ingest it. “They had someone coming out and baiting once a week, which we don’t approve of,” said APRL outreach director Christina Tacoronti. “They were also thinking about using other lethal methods to get rid of the gophers.” So far, however, ARPL has not taken further action than putting in a pair of calls to deputy director of community parks Clay Bingham. Bingham asked the group for a legal solution but said he has not gotten any feedback. “When they called me, the first thing I asked was, ‘Do you guys have a certified method of dealing with gophers? I would be happy to consider it if you will send me that information,’” Bingham said. “To date, they haven’t sent me anything.” Bingham said the city uses a pest control firm that meets qualifications established by the state and federal government. He said

the firm uses the lowest amount of pesticide that can possibly be used. “It poses no threat of secondary poisoning — it’s not something that can be ingested by a pet or by a child,” Bingham said. “It’s applied in such a manner that protects the public.” According to Bingham, gophers create soft spots and holes at Robb Field that patrons trip on. He said the pesticide is only applied in areas where there is an issue. “We only have a problem if they go after our shrubs and horticulture or if they create a hazard on a playing field,” Bingham said. “Otherwise they are left to their own devices.” APRL’s solution to the gopher population problem involves what it calls common sense and a slightly different approach. “When we have any sort of wildlife population coming into an urban area, the two main things we need to focus on are prevention and deterrence,” Tacoronti said. According to Tacoronti, pre-

vention involves not feeding the animals, because any secondary source of food will boost their population. She said gopher prevention at Robb Field also involves making sure that all trashcans in the park are secure. In combination with this, APRL prefers deterring animals from making an area such as Robb Field a habitat — but in a way that is not harmful to them. Tacoronti said examples of nonlethal deterrents are ground vibrations and simulating the sounds that gopher predators make. “There’s many non-lethal deterrents that can be used to get the gophers out of Robb Field,” Tacoronti said. APRL started campaigning against wildlife poisoning in 2007 as a result of squirrels being poisoned in Balboa Park. That effort resulted in hundreds of signs in the park asking the public not to feed the squirrels, something that Tacoronti said helped control the squirrel population there. “We definitely would have loved to have seen the city of San Diego stop poisoning altogether, but the fact that we were able to put up signs alerting the public about how feeding squirrels actually leads to a population boom was very helpful; just getting that knowledge out to the public so individuals can do something about it,” Tacoronti said. The organization also works regularly to raise public awareness about the effects of animal poisoning. For information on APRL, visit www.aprl.org. ■

Underwater charm, from sand dollars to sea lions BY SARA E. WACKER | VILLAGE NEWS

From the friendly garibaldi to the jovial California sea lion, there is much to see below San Diego’s waters. There are close to 50 named dive sites throughout San Diego and North County’s coast, including seven at La Jolla Shores, eight in La Jolla Cove, six among Wreck Alley’s collection of diveable shipwrecks in San Diego Bay, 10 in North County and six in Point Loma. Some of the most popular are: La Jolla Shores is the most frequently dived site in San Diego and often the most used diving instruction site. Ample parking, lots of grassy space for instructors to set up for their classes and the underwater topography make for good conditions here even when other places are washed out. “The reason I like to instruct here is that it’s very safe — wideopen spaces, plenty of room for everyone, nice sandy, sloping bottom, not a lot of obstacles or hazards, within the recreational dive limits [with regard to depth],” explained Virginia “V” Hatter, a PADI instructor. “La Jolla Shores is also good for open-water training because the first few dives are limited to 40 feet and there’s plenty to see here at 40 feet. The next two dives (dives three and four) are limited to 60 feet. And up to and at 60 feet, there’s a real nice [Scripps] Canyon. You can get your dive students safely within their limits into the canyon to where they can see that and the different marine life that is living in that area. It’s very versatile.”

“For navigation purposes, it’s very easy to dive, because this beach faces due west, and if you are headed west you’re heading out into the ocean; heading east, you’re coming back into your base camp; heading south, heading towards the cove; heading north, heading towards the pier, so as far as navigation, it is very easy to negotiate,” she added. The Shores is an ecological reserve, The La Jolla Underwater Park and Ecological Reserve. The bottom is sandy and slopes gradually to about 30 feet deep; after that, the slope increases down to about 60 feet deep, where Scripps Canyon and various walls begin. Dives at the Shores can be boring with a vast sand bottom and little sea life or completely remarkable when you see bat rays, sea lions or leopard sharks. “I really enjoy the sand dollars,” said Nick Cunningham of San Marcos, who just moved back from Catalina and has spent the last two weekends diving. He has not had much experience diving San Diego. Wreck Alley is next on his list. La Jolla Cove is another great spot, if the surf is low. The Cove has shallow rock reefs with a lot of fish and other living creatures. Parking can be the biggest challenge, so plan for an arrival of 7 a.m. or earlier. “I like the diversity of life,” said Scott Welchons of Carlsbad. “La Jolla Shores is a great local dive; easy to do.” He said the surroundings are what make La Jolla Shores different than the Cove. “La Jolla Cove has the rocky edges going down

into the ocean, a lot of sea grass, kelp and a rocky bottom. Here [La Jolla Shores], just as you see the beach, you’ve got a flat sandy plain going out to the [Scripps] Canyon and drops down — so you’ve got a little bit of a difference in how you go out and what you’re going to see.” Marine Room is one of San Diego divers’ hidden gems. The entrance to this dive site is a sidewalk and stairs on the south side of the Marine Room Restaurant (2000 Spindrift Drive). Due to the Marine Room’s shallowness, some divers opt to snorkel the 2- to 4-foot water PHOTOS BY SARA E. WACKER directly in front of the restaurant. A curious California sea lion (above) and guitarfish at La Jolla Shores (below) Odds are good that leopard are some of the undersea sights awaiting divers. sharks, shovelnose sharks and stingrays will be seen, especially in the late summer. The same creatures and critters can be observed at 5 to 30 feet deep as the Cove, including large schools of fish, specifically California barracuda. Wreck Alley is a collection of shipwrecks in Mission Bay, including the Ruby E, El Rey, NOSC Tower and HMCS Yukon. The Ruby E, a former Coast Guard cutter, fishing boat and salvage vessel, was intentionally sunk in June 1989 to become an artificial reef. It now lies at 65 feet. The El Rey, also intentionally sunk to become an artificial reef (1987), was formerly a kelp harvester. It lies at 75 feet deep. The NOSC Tower, an offshore tower or platform, is another spot that dive charter boats stop off to visit in a trio of dive spots. It lies at 70 feet. The latest contribution to San Diego’s Wreck Alley, the HMCS

Yukon, is quite possibly the biggest jewel in Wreck Alley’s crown. At 366 feet in length, it is one of California’s largest wrecks accessible by divers. As the newest wreck, it is also the most intact divers can visit, which also makes it potentially one of California’s most dangerous

wrecks to dive. According to CaWreckDivers.org, the Yukon was towed down to San Diego, gutted and cleaned by the San Diego Oceans Foundation. “On Thursday, July 13, 2000, she was SEE CHARM, Page 10

towed out and moored off Mission Bay in preparation for sinking. Explosives were placed forward and aft to sink her. The plan was to blow holes in both sides of the bow below the waterline, and then blow holes in the stern. This systematic opening of the hull allowed water to fill both the port and starboard sides simultaneously, allowing the ship to settle upright. Unfortunately, the plan was never executed. That night swells rocked the ship, allowing water to enter the holes cut low to the waterline. Shortly after midnight, her bow headed for the bottom. Rolling over on her port side, the stern stuck up in the air and it too sank to the bottom 100 feet below.” North County dive sites are generally very exposed to swell and therefore only diveable when the surf is small. From Fletcher Cove to Cardiff Reef, Pipe’s, Swami’s and Moonlight Beach, there are ample places to check out in North County when the conditions are right. Point Loma dive sites are exclusively boat access

San Diego’s average shore diving visibility in the La Jolla area, where most of the area shore diving occurs, is 15 to 20 feet; however, it can range from 2 to 30 or 40 feet. The water temperature varies substantially; generally, the summer surface will be high 60s to low 70s, summer depth will be low 60s to high 60s. The winter surface will be high 50s to low 60s, with winter depth in the very low 50s to high 50s. Whether you’re an avid local scuba diver or can appreciate what’s down below the water’s surface but prefer dry land, DiveBums.com is a San Diegobased dive site with all things scuba diving. The site details San Diego dive sites, reports current conditions, showcases a photo identification guide and shares photos and underwater videos of local wrecks and creatures. The allure of the DiveBums.com site is the photos, whether you’re a diver or not. San Diego’s professional and novice underwater photographers and videographers submit photos for consideration as photos of the week. A chance encounter with a gray whale in La Jolla Cove (January 2007) graces the home page of the site, but regular submissions include the likes of a soupfin shark seen off Shell Beach in La Jolla, a photo of what seems like miles of sand dollars taken at La Jolla Shores or a copper rockfish captured at Point Loma’s ancient sea cliffs. “There are a lot of different places to go [diving in San Diego County],” Welchons said. “You can go all up and down the coast — Carlsbad, Cardiff Reef — boat diving, Yukon, Ruby E, El Rey, Los Coronados. There’s a lot of different variety and a lot of different skill levels that could be dove in San Diego County.” If you’re interested in getting certified, Hatter, who’s been diving for the last six-plus years and now teaches four to five times a week, can be reached at padicake7@yahoo.com or by calling (703) 869-5617. “It’s definitely a lesson in learning and an application of patience — safety comes first, patience second and fun next,” Hatter said. “The only pressure you’ll feel in my classes is what’s in the tank on your back.” To learn more about scuba diving San Diego’s waters, log onto DiveBums.com. ■ — San Diego H2O continues next week.

which opened Sunday night, Aug. 16 at La Jolla Playhouse. The evolution of the stage work is extremely complex. Suffice it to say that this stage adaptation by Patrick Barlow is based on Simon Corble and Nobby Dimon’s original concept, which was based on John Buchan’s novel. Barlow’s adaptation is based more on the 1935 Hitchcock film than on the novel. Playgoers don’t really need to know that, either. To further complicate matters, the Playhouse production is shared with Seattle Repertory where it will play prior to the commencement of a separate national tour. Meanwhile, the much-nominated New York production continues at Broadway’s Helen Hayes Theatre, and the 2007 Laurence Olivier Awardwinning London production also continues. Forget all that, and hie thee to the Playhouse for a ripping good time. The concept is that the 100-plus characters in the film are all played by three men and one woman. Ted Deasy portrays Richard Hannay, a lonely 37-year-old London bachelor who goes to the theater and becomes the target of an international spy ring when he harbors an opposing spy named Annabella (Claire Brownell), who is murdered by two men (Eric Hissom and Scott Parkinson). Brownell plays two other women in the story, a kindly farmer’s wife and the sophisticated blond, Pamela, who blows the whistle on Hannay not once

and long-distance runner who eludes the opposition repeatedly, at the 11th hour handcuffed to Pamela, with whom he falls in love. Barlow’s clever adaptation of all the others’ adaptations and of the film itself manages to include many other Hitchcock titles in the dialogue. Director of this magnificent display of actors’ gifts is the impressive Maria Aitken, a high comedy expert who staged the West End and Broadway productions of “The 39 Steps” and who has extensive credits in both the U.K. and U.S. as an actor, director and teacher.

Old World Portuguese fare to spice up Tango del Rey BY CHARLENE BALDRIDGE | VILLAGE NEWS

Judging from the photos in her CD and the sound of her voice, beauteous Ramana Vieira is a lovely person. It seems utterly natural for her to be seated in a Bay Area park surrounded by children (including her 5-year-old son) at play while she answers questions via long distance. A native of San Leandro born to Portuguese parents, Vieira is a fadista, or one who sings and, in her case, composes fado, a Portuguese vocal style she learned at her mother’s knee. The word translates into English as “fate” or “destiny.” Currently, it is Vieira’s destiny to be at Pacific Beach’s Tango del Rey Sunday, Aug. 23 to perform her show “A Cultura de Portugal,” treating listeners to the art form, her band of musicians and her songs. Asked where and when fado arose, Vieira said, “It originated somewhere between the 15th and 18th centuries, back in the court days, the aristocracy times, when it was sung to kings and queens. It’s a blend of music from Arabia, Spain, Brazil and Africa, a conglomeration of these cultures that had major influences in Portugal and in the Iberian Peninsula — you know, similar to how blues music originated here in the United States.” Informed by centuries-old tradition and Vieira’s innate theatricality (she studied at American Conservatory Theatre for 10 years),

Fadista Ramana Vieira performs “A Cultura de Portugal” at Tango del Rey in Pacific Beach on Sunday, Aug. 23.

many of her songs are little dramas. Many are sad, like “Lagrimas de Rainha” (“Tears of a Queen”), the title track on her Pacific Coast Jazz CD. She hastened to say that, just as in a good blues show, “A Cultura de Portugal” is composed of up-tempo fados, ballady fados and the more melancholy fados. “Lagrimas de Rainha” concerns the true story of Ines de Castro, a servant in the castle of Dom Pedro and his mother, the reigning queen. Dom Pedro fell in love with Ines, and she bore him several children. SEE TANGO, Page 12

“They married in secrecy,” Vieira explained. “Eventually, they were found out, and she was killed. When he became king, he never forgot how his lover had been mercilessly slain, so he exhumed her body and dressed her in the finest jewels and silks, where everyone in the court kissed her hand” and acknowledged her as queen. “There’s a beautiful fountain in the town of Coimbra, where this happened.

Hence the performance in San Diego, in which she will be accompanied by the extraordinary musicians on her CD, guitarist Jeffrey Luiz, cellist Marcie Brown, electric bassist Alberto Ramirez and percussionist Steve La Porta.

COASTAL HOME IMPROVEMENT

A Backyard Oasis In a Summer of Budgets (MS) -- Where do you search for relaxation in a summer of staying put? Last year, the media reported a new trend: foregoing big vacations for "staycations," or staying put and using the money saved for turning homes and yards into destination spaces for leisure. But this year, things are different. If you've just scuttled a summer trip because money is tight and you're a little uneasy about job security, then adding on a new sunroom or canopied

deck may suddenly seem mighty frivolous. For many people, this is shaping up to be a summer of smaller pursuits. Planting a line of ornamental trees, for instance, to block your view of that one neighbor you wish was not, and who's likely to be home more this summer as well. You won't get the fullest foliage this year, but each new spring will yield even prettier privacy. Still, the real joy of vacationing is feeling like you're not required to do anything, and that's

tough to manage at home. If only there were a way to cost-effectively create some kind of relaxation haven right in the middle of your daily life, a backyard oasis where you could just pop in and leave the world behind. But that's obviously impossible ... Not if you've got a well-made hammock, it isn't! "Repeat customers are always telling me the SEE BACKYARD, Page 15

best mini-vacation they've ever bought has been a hammock and a hammock stand," says J.R. Pelletier, manager of TheHammockCompany.com, an international leader in hammock sales. "I think it's that sense of being supported while also being up off the ground -- it really feels as if you've been lifted out of your busy life where the driveway still needs edging and the fence needs painting." Potential relaxers should, however, be aware that not all hammocks are alike, cautions Bill

Russo, president of Nags Head Hammocks, one of the world's leading producers and retailers of hand-woven hammocks. "A poorly made hammock may not last even the summer, so that's really wasted money," Russo says. "But a well-made one should give you a number of seasons of enjoyment, possibly even year-round, depending on where you live." One note of caution: A shady spot is best for setting up your hammock. "If you fall asleep in direct summer sunlight -- and chances are you

will fall asleep -- you won't feel nearly so relaxed when you wake up burned!" Russo says. And if you time it to before all those lovely new trees start filling in and blocking the view, you can set up your hammock where that annoying neighbor can't help but see you in it, kicked back and relaxing.

Prayer garden invites neighbors to take rest BY ADRIANE TILLMAN | VILLAGE NEWS

For the past year, Willie Calabrese has spent countless weekends across the street from his house on Loring Street transforming a dirt lot at the Pacific Beach Christian Church into a community prayer garden. An incoming senior at La Jolla High School, Calabrese set out to complete his Eagle Scout project that grew into a memorial garden for the entire neighborhood. “Most people’s Eagle Scout projects are nothing like this,” Calabrese said. “It was like four Eagle Scout projects… I never intended for it to grow into this. “It was more than an Eagle Scout project; it was a communi-

ty project.” Calabrese said he enjoys looking through his window across the street to the garden and seeing people stopping to sit and rest. At the dedication service earlier this summer, Opal Street resident Nathan Lorey, who does not attend the church regularly, stood to read a poem inspired by his visits to the garden. He described the garden as a place to meet God and a space that welcomes characters. “People have to take that extra step to come into the doors [of the church] but they can come here and meet God on their own terms,” said the church pastor, Brian Daly.

King gets crowned by President Obama BY DAVE KENSLER | VILLAGE NEWS

During her remarkable career on the professional tennis tour, Billie Jean King won 39 Grand Slam championships — 12 in singles, 16 in doubles and 11 in mixed doubles. However, those championships and others she won are only marginally on her radar now, thanks to a lesson King learned from her father at a young age: never look back. It is a lesson that propels her to this day on her approach to life.

“The first time I was ever on the front page of the sports section in my hometown newspaper, it was for losing a tennis match 6-0, 6-0,” King said. “I did not even win a single game. My father told me to never worry again about what is printed about me or my performance because it is about yesterday.” Today, almost 20 years have passed since she last played competitively, yet King continues to move forward and enjoy every SEE KING, Page 23

Seahawks tackle Chargers in pre-season BY DAVE THOMAS | VILLAGE NEWS

PLNU pitching ace Bovich signed by Pads BY KEITH ANTIGIOVANNI | VILLAGE NEWS

Andrew Bovich, Point Loma Nazarene University’s (PLNU) pitching ace this past season, was signed by the hometown San Diego Padres in June to play in the rookie Arizona League at Peoria. “He was signed about a week after the baseball draft,” PLNU head baseball coach Joe Schaefer SEE PADS, Page 20 Andrew Bovich (right) has moved from pitching for PLNU to the Padres rookie Arizona League.

Don’t read too much into the fact that a team that was a miserable 4-12 a season ago came to San Diego Saturday evening and scored a 20-14 victory in the locals’ NFL pre-season opener. That being said, fans of the San Diego Chargers saw what life could be like if QB Philip Rivers gets injured again. Most in attendance would agree it would not be pretty. While the game was blacked out locally due to not enough tickets being sold 72 hours prior to kickoff, the 58,373 in the crowd witnessed a rare sighting: star running back La Dainian Tomlinson seeing action in an exhibition game. Tomlinson got to carry the pigskin four times for 10 yards but, most important, stayed injury free in his first pre-season action in four years. The story of the night for San

Diego (0-1) was turning the ball over when third-string QB Charlie Whitehurst (pictured) was at the helm. The Clemson product, who saw little action last season, accounted for a pair of interceptions and a fumble before rallying the team from a 20-7 deficit. As for Seattle (1-0), the Seahawks under new head coach Jim Mora got their first points from second-string QB Seneca Wallace, who tossed a nice ball in the corner of the end zone to John Owens to make it 7-7. Seattle took a 14-7 lead late in the third quarter as third-string QB Mike Teel found Mike Haas for an 18-yard connection. After Brandon Coutu made a pair of fourth-quarter field goals to extend the lead to 20-7, San Diego looked like it might turn things around when Whitehurst finally settled down and hit Legedu Naanee on a 5-yard TD with just under four minutes remaining in the game.

San Diego managed to get the ball back one last time, but its drive to possibly to tie and/or win the game ended when Whitehurst (15-29, 193 yards) was unable to complete a fourthdown pass with under a minute remaining. As noted earlier, it was turnovers that did in San Diego, as three miscues led to 10 points for the Seahawks. On the bright side for San Diego, both Tomlinson and linebacker Shawne Merriman emerged healthy from the contest, while second-string QB Billy Volek hit on 8 of 12 passes for 122 yards. “We had a couple of chances at big plays with the first-team offense that we just missed,” San Diego Head Coach Norv Turner noted. “I like the way Billy (Volek) came out and played.” Since Rivers, Tomlinson, DarSEE CHARGERS, Page 20

Restaurateurs David and Lesley Cohn recently packed up their yellow Corvette and moved the popular ’50s-style Corvette Diner — and all the eatery’s famed nostalgia — to Liberty Station in Point Loma. The diner’s namesake sports car has been repainted turquoise to match the reborn diner’s décor. According to the Cohns, the diner was moved because the lease was up at the former Hillcrest site and parking continued to be problematic. “In the early ’80s, the Hillcrest business district was a redevelopment area and parking wasn’t such an issue,” David Cohn said. But since then, “people complained about parking every single day for 22 years.” The new location inside the former Naval Training Center (NTC) Officer’s Club at 2965 Historic Decatur Road offers more than 1,000 free parking spaces within a two-block area. Located just inside the northeast entrance, the diner sits directly across from the Sail Ho Golf Course. Although the new location is twice the size of the Hillcrest site, seating will be limited to 300 patrons. The Cohns made certain to include plenty of room for all the wonderful and familiar signs customers have enjoyed for years. Cohn said Liberty Station was an attractive choice because “you can’t find buildings with character and historical significance [in something] like… strip malls.”

The Cohn Restaurant Group has opened the new Liberty Station Corvette Diner, and in honor of the new location, the signature yellow Corvette is now turquoise. COURTESY PHOTO BY MIKE RYAN

The building was built in 1923 and is designated NTC Building 24. It remains historically intact. Cohn hopes guests will share their experiences of the old club. “We want the building to continue to be part of people’s lives,” David Cohn said, adding that he has relocated his restaurant group’s headquarters to Liberty Station. The new diner includes a full bar, private meeting rooms and a state-of-the-art arcade room called The Gamer’s Garage, described as a compromise between Chuck E. Cheese and Dave & Busters. There is also a train-style dining car with LCD “windows” and videos “taking guests on a simulated trip, moving along at about

40 mph.” Another room boasts a ’70s disco theme with blacklights, flat black walls, neon posters and special blacklight-reactive tabletops. The diner features the same menu, including “p-nut” burgers and milk shakes, home-style meatloaf and the popular macaroni and cheese. The traditional flinging of straws and bubblegum and impromptu singing by the “campy” waitresses in bouffant hairdos also continues, Cohn said. The Corvette Diner celebrated its grand opening at the new location last month. For more information, call (619) 542-1476, or visit www.cohnrestaurants.com.

Car buffs persevere despite industry setbacks BY JOHNNY MCDONALD | VILLAGE NEWS

Despite restructuring being done to lead car companies in new, hopefully profitable directions, America will continue its love affair with the automobile. Not for the new stuff but the sentimental older ones. The car buff still lives in the “golden” past, whether with antiques, hot rods, custom, classic or muscle cars. Gas guzzlers, for sure, but a passion that never seems to die. The Car Club Council of Greater San Diego, for instance, lists 98 clubs dealing with all makes and models. Memberships run into the thousands. Hobbying car clubs are mainstreams of our times. Members assemble often to show off what they own and to share their enthusiasm. Antiques or rare vintage machines border the turn of the 20th century with the best creations of Henry Ford, Walter Chrysler, Karl Benz and Ransom Olds. Steam and early electric power were marvels of that period. Hot rod shows appear someplace in the county almost weekly, featuring the classics. These cars provide engineering influence and imagination. The leading competition and custom owners collect more huge trophies to stash away in the garage, often too big for a spot inside the house. Why not the garage — the car earned it. Evolution of the muscle car in the 1960s is well documented by these nostalgic horsepower club-

While they have never won the big prize since the AFL and NFL merged, the San Diego Chargers have had a number of prized moments over the years. An AFC championship in the 199495 season, some of the top players the game has seen in the likes of Dan Fouts, Lance Alworth, Junior Seau, and some of the most devoted fans in the country — these are just some of the great things the San Diego Chargers have witnessed over the years. NFL Films and Warner Home Video will highlight some of the team’s best moments with the world premiere of “San Diego Chargers: The Complete History” on Wednesday, Sept. 9 at 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. at the UltraStar Theater at Hazard Center. Tickets are $10 and available on the team’s Website, www.chargers.com. Fans may also buy tickets at the theater if seats are available. “This film is a ‘can’t miss’ for true Chargers fans,” Chargers Executive Vice President A.G. Spanos said in a release. “Chargers fans will get a

chance to relive all of the team’s greatest plays, greatest players and greatest moments that helped build the San Diego Chargers into one of the NFL’s most successful franchises. “Nobody documents the sheer drama and excitement of the NFL better than NFL Films. It’s going to be a memorable night and a great way to kick off our season.” NFL Films senior producer David Plaut, who was born in San Diego and raised a Chargers fan, even worked briefly for the team in the 1960s. “This is a unique opportunity for Charger fans to relive some of the best moments in Charger history on the giant screen. We are truly excited to be part of this exclusive, one-nightonly event,” added Damon Rubio, vice president of operations for UltraStar Cinemas. While no one quite knows how this season will unfold, there is no doubt a strong history with the Bolts and their fans. Those with an interest in the San Diego Chargers should reserve some time the evening of Sept. 9. ■

said. “The Padre scout worked him out and he was signed on the spot.” The 23-year-old southpaw helped lead the Sea Lions to the best season in the program’s 60-year history with his personal 13-1 record. He also was undefeated in the regular season and posted a dominant (1.70) earned run average (ERA). After the College World Series, Bovich attributed his outstanding year to his time in the Carolina League this past fall, where he gained muchneeded experience against professional players. Bovich had modest numbers the previous year (2008) with a 6-4 record, while the rest of the young Sea Lion pitching staff struggled during the first part of the season. Despite the struggles, Bovich showed signs of promise during the course of the year with a 43-to-15 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 75 innings of work and two complete games. “He’s very excited about getting the opportunity to play with an affiliated club,” Schaefer said. “Before he was signed, he called me for advice and was thinking about playing for an independent league in the Midwest until the Padres signed him.” The San Clemente native transferred to PLNU two years ago from Riverside Community College and was part of a state championship team. His Arizona League numbers

included allowing 10 hits, 4 runs and 8 strikeouts in 9.1 innings of work with a 2.89 ERA in 7 games. Bovich then moved up to Eugene, Ore., where he has appeared in three games. “The Padres scouts were interested in him (Bovich) before the draft but he didn’t throw too fast, about 82 to 84 miles per hour. Teams don’t always want to take a risk,” Schaefer said. Bovich is one of three players from the 2009 PLNU squad to sign with a major league club. Kurt Steinhauer was drafted in the 24th round by the New York Mets, then played 12 games in the Gulf Coast League. But he has quickly moved up to the advanced rookie Appalachian League at Kingsport, Tenn. the past 12 games. “It is very exciting to get a chance to play,” Steinhauer

said. “When I was a kid, I would dream about getting the opportunity to play baseball. Even though I grew up a Dodgers fan, I’m definitely a Mets fan now.” The Kingsport Mets are currently 14-23 but have won four straight games. Despite the relatively short time since he was drafted, Steinhauer has been able to compare college baseball to professional baseball. “They almost feel like different sports,” Steinhauer said. “In college, you play three or four games a week, then get days off and are well-rested. But professional baseball is more of a grind because you play every day. “Personally, I like it better because you get the opportunity to come back the next day if you didn’t play that well the day before. I love playing baseball and it is awesome to get the opportunity to play every day.” Steinhauer is currently hitting .324 at Kingsport. Meanwhile, former Sea Lion Kaohi Downing was drafted by the San Francisco Giants in the 50th round and is also playing in the Arizona League. Other PLNU players who have been signed by major league teams are pitcher Mike Ekstrom, a member of the 2004 College World Series team who has split time between the minor leagues and the Padres, and Jonnie Lowe, who is currently pitching in the Class A advanced Carolina League with the WinstonSalem Dash. Lowe went 5-7 in 22 appearances with a (4.10) ERA with Class A Kannapolis in 2008. ■

James Dean revisited on new DVDs BY JAMES COLT HARRISON | VILLAGE NEWS

DVDs are a wonderful invention because they allow movie fans to see old favorites and fairly new films in their own homes. Here is a definitive story of James Dean, an icon since the 1950s, on a new DVD release. “James Dean: The Fast Lane” recalls the movie legend who seems to be more famous now 54 years after his death. The star of only three films as a leading man is presented here showing many of his television appearances and bit parts in other films. Dean came out of New York theater in the early 1950s. He had languished in New York doing obscure plays and minor roles on television dramas. He came out of the same actors group as Marlon Brando, another figure who went on to become a major movie star. While in New York, Dean supported himself by doing small parts on such shows as “Westinghouse Studio One,” “Kraft Television Theater,” ”General Electric Theater” and “Armstrong’s Circle Theater,” on which he honed his acting chops. The next stop was Hollywood, and Dean appeared in tiny parts in “Fixed Bayonets” (1951) with Richard Basehart, and in the musical “Has Anybody Seen My Gal?”(1952) with Rock Hudson and Piper Laurie. Dean’s career got a huge boost when New York director Elia Kazan cast him in the film version of John Steinbeck’s famous novel “East of Eden” (1955). Set in 1917 in a California farming communi-

Her birth name was Anna Maria Pierangeli, but MGM decided to split her last name in half and voila — she became Pier Angeli! Jimmy was quite smitten with the Italian beauty, and she dallied with him for a time. But mama Enrica did not see Dean as marriageable material nor a Catholic, and she put the squash on the budding romance.

The Spies Inside Your Computer (Syndicated News) A Russian gang of criminals has been rumbled for infiltrating thousands of corporate and government computers to steal passwords and other valuable information. The cyber thieves adapted a program called Coreflood to help themselves to online bank accounts. Security expert Joe Stewart from SecureWorks, a computer security firm in Atlanta has been following the progress of Coreflood as it wormed its way into PC’s belonging to hospitals, companies and government agencies. At a recent security conference in Las Vegas he explained its modus operandi “It’s spying on you, capturing your log-ons, user names, passwords, bank balances, contents of your e-mail.”

Cymer, Inc.

To give you an idea of how successful Coreflood has been Stewart posted some his findings on his company’s website. He managed to grab 500 gigabytes of data from a server that the gang was using. Of the accounts the crooks tested, the highest balance was $147,000.

The gang’s exposure highlights the explosion of malicious software that has been hijacking computers across the planet. Spyware is the general term given to programs that follow your every keystroke and transmit this information to a third party elsewhere on the internet. So if you bank or shop online your private and personal information could be sent back to the people who created the programs. Companies can find their accounts emptied or checks drawn for miscellaneous amounts. They strike without warning.

(858) 454-1600 • www.ljconcertsbythesea.org

Enormously adept at getting onto your system, there are numerous ways to unwittingly pick up a spyware program. By visiting a dodgy website, downloading from a file sharing network, or just by opening an email. Also be wary of dialogue boxes on some websites. This is a classic way for a piece of spyware software to infiltrate your computer. You click to close the box, but what you don’t realize is that you’re actually giving the green light for the program to rummage around your hard drive. Businesses without the expertise to deal with these situations will suffer. “Good technical support, especially in small to mid-size businesses, is a key aspect to running businesses efficiently today," explained Cari Diaz of Fast-teks in a recent interview. They’re a leading on-site computer services company and specialize in getting consumers and businesses out of the mess that malicious software can cause. They also equip people with the knowledge to spot trouble before it’s too late. The first inkling that something is wrong with your computer is that you are bombarded with pop-up advertisements. Some of these come from legitimate companies wanting to place what they believe are relevant adverts for you. The spyware program has learnt all about your surfing habits and targeted you with ads that cater for your hobbies. Other noticeable signs of attack are that your computer is running slower than normal, it freezes or crashes. Paid Advertorial

According to the experts there is a lot you can do to avoid harm. Companies such as Fast-teks advise their customers to protect themselves in the following ways. They say you should avoid opening suspicious pop-up advertisements and emails, install pop-blockers and get hold of the latest anti-virus software or spyware removal programs. Some of the most popular fixes on the market are Ad-Aware, Spybot S&D, and Webroot Skysweeper. But beware of sites offering free anti-spy ware programs, as some of these can be fakes and may even be spyware themselves. The good news is that your computer can be cleansed, the bugs eliminated, and the threat destroyed. The bad news is that victory may only be temporary. Joe Stewart’s experience with Coreflood is proof that the problem may never go away. The Russian gang shut down their original command program and moved it to another computer in the Ukraine, beyond the reach of US law. Coreflood infections continue. Business and consumers need to heed all the expert advice. Regular scans with anti-spyware programs, or calling in the professionals are the best chances of spotting trouble before it’s too late. Take action before real damage is done to your life or business. Compliments of Syndicated News

GARDEN CONTINUED FROM Page 17

The idea for the prayer garden first began when Pacific Beach Christian Church remodeled and scrapped a small building that left behind a dirt lot. Church member Marjorie Swailes, who has attended the church since the day it

HOME & GARDEN

opened in 1949, had donated $10,000 to build a church chapel in honor of her late husband Clifford and his parents. When Calabrese approached her about the project, Swailes said she wanted the church to build a prayer garden. Her parents-in-law Edgar and Golda Swailes were avid gardeners, she said. “I felt an obligation to fulfill their

expectations,” Calabrese said. “It was beyond my wildest expectations.” Professionals stepped in to help Calabrese. John Stojic, owner of Classic Craft Construction, volunteered to teach Calabrese how to use a Bobcat to level the earth. Stojic is also an assistant Scoutmaster at Calabrese’s Troop 506, based at the La Jolla Methodist Church. On

project day, fellow Boy Scouts helped Calabrese move several palm trees that weighed nearly 1,000 pounds and build a pergola for shade. Calabrese worked with Green Gardens on Cass Street to select drought-tolerant plants and to install drip irrigation. He planted a border of olive trees, rosemary bushes and decorative Forest Pansies with crimson, heart-shaped leaves. Focus Lighting sold Calabrese low-voltage lights for nearly half the price to illuminate the garden at night. Two trellises mark the entranceway to the garden adorned with stone benches, a bubbling fountain and a watchful cherub. Hummingbirds zip around the garden. The garden has also become a space for remembrance. A rock river snakes between native gaura plants where the public is invited to inscribe a rock in memory of a loved one (the pen sits in a bucket under the pergola). At the end of the river stands a large acacia tree that Calabrese’s mother Janice ordered specially to honor church member George Podhorsky, whose late daughter, Hannah, was fatally shot this past February. Building a garden was far more complex than Calabrese imagined, and he admits he enjoyed driving the Bobcat far more than wading through the planning process. Calabrese spent approximately $1,000 securing a city permit since the garden was located in a commercial district in the coastal zone. He recalls humorously when six people from different agencies showed up to inspect his work one day when he was laying the concrete. His expenses grew beyond his budget and he had to reach out to more donors. Calabrese managed to secure an ecological grant from a family that had set up an VILLAGE NEWS | ADRIANE TILLMAN

account at the La Jolla Methodist Church for conservation projects in honor of their late son. Including Swailes’ donation, Calabrese had to raise $22,000 for the project. Calabrese wasn’t charging ahead on this project alone, however; his father is a Scoutmaster who helped steer his son through the process, Janice said. Completing his Eagle Scout project is just one activity in Calabrese’s busy teenage life, however. He competes on the swim and water polo teams at La Jolla High School. He serves as a deacon and lay leader at his church. He blows glass at Balboa Park in his spare time. While his church dedicated the prayer garden with hymns, thanksgiving and a prayer, Calabrese was elsewhere training to be a lifeguard for next summer, when he turns 18. At the dedication, church members lined up to collect rocks from the river. Small children carefully chose their favorite shaped rocks on which to write the names of their deceased grandparents. Andrea Sanders snapped photos of her rock that she dedicated to her father Bill Newsome, who passed away last year. Newsome and his wife, Marylou, were the first couple to get married in the church, and their daughter, Andrea, was the second baby born into the church family. ■

opportunity that comes her way. At the beginning of the month, King played host for an event she created, the Advanta World Team Tennis Junior Nationals, held at the Barnes Tennis Center. There were 16 teams from throughout the United States made up of six players each, three boys and three girls all in the 14- to 18-year-old range. It is doubtful one could find many retired professional athletes in any sport, 20-some years removed from the competition, who will spend four days with nearly 100 teenagers. “I love it,” said King during an interview at last week’s event. “Every year, I learn more and more how smart all of these kids are about life.” Unlike many celebrity event hosts who may make just a keynote speech or two, King is hands-on the entire Junior Nationals event. Between giving seminars off the court, coaching sessions on the court, meeting with teams and individual players and offering advice to team coaches, she is involved with the competition from start to finish. So what is her best advice for working with teenagers? “Be truthful,” King said. “Kids want to know the truth and you better be honest and tell them. By doing so, not only do you teach them but they also teach you.” At the conclusion of the competition, King, whose life never seems to hit the “pause button,” headed for Washington, D.C. There she was honored Aug. 12

as one of 16 people receiving from Pres. Barack Obama the nation’s top civilian honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom. “The word ‘freedom’ has always been one of my favorites, ever since I was a young girl,” King said. “I love history. Think about what it means: The freedom to worship. The freedom to believe in a cause.” Yet for King, the honor means more than just what she has achieved or done in her lifetime. “This award also belongs to everyone who has helped me along the way in my life — my parents and brother, Clyde Walker, who first taught me how to play tennis and made it fun, teachers I had in school,” King said. This was not King’s first time meeting Obama. In June, she was

at a conference focusing on the impact of Title IX when a woman told her, “The president wants to meet with you.” “I thought she meant the president of one of the organizations who were part of the conference,” King said. “So I asked, ‘Which president?’ To which the woman replied, ‘The President of the United States. He is waiting for you now.’” In the ensuing 20-minute conversation, King was stunned to learn Obama was a longtime admirer. “The president told me when he was 12 or 13 years old, he would come watch me practice at Punahou School in Honolulu, Hawaii, which, of course, is the school he attended,” King said. “Then he told me in later years of places in Chicago where he would watch me train, too. I could not believe it.” King said Obama also told her, “I just knew you were going to beat Bobby Riggs,” referring to her much-celebrated match with Riggs, an achievement often cited as playing a significant role in the enormous growth of tennis in the 1970s. The theme for the recent Presidential Medal of Freedom ceremony was “Agents of Change.” In addition to King, other recipients included Sandra Day O’Connor, the first female Supreme Court Justice; renowned South African freedom fighter Desmond Tutu; actor Sidney Poitier; and acclaimed physicist Stephen Hawking.
