Memorial to punctuate 10th anniversary of Sept. 11 horror BY MARIKO LAMB | VILLAGE NEWS o commemorate the lives and heroics of emergency first responders during 9/11 terrorist attacks on New York City’s World Trade Center, a La Jolla artist is teaming up with a San Diego firefighter to create a memorial honoring those that made the ultimate sacrifice 10 years ago. The memorial, designed by 24-year-old Station 21 firefighter Tim Swanson, consists of a black concrete base and two polished-aluminum columns that represent the fallen towers. The columns are inscribed with the names of all the emergency first responders who died in the 9/11 attacks, and a piece of steel from the Twin Towers is incorporated into the front façade of the project. “The piece of steel was donated to the [San Diego Fire-Rescue Department] from the fire department in New York with the stipulation that it be used on a public art project. They’ve had it for a couple of years, but never quite got started on making something with it,” said Wendy Robinson, executive director of the San Diego Fire Rescue Foundation. “We had another design that was presented and approved, but [Swanson] felt very strongly about doing this, and he really went to bat with the project.” Swanson, a certified welder, took on the project four months ago. “I think it means a little bit more to have a firefighter do it,” he said. He enlisted the assistance of Barnhart Construction to pour the concrete base
and Tara Tarrant of La Jolla Stone Etching to inscribe the names of the emergency first responders into the columns. Other materials and labor were donated by Barnhart Balfour Beatty, Industrial Metal Supply, KMA Architecture, La Jolla Stone Etching and SDG&E. The memorial is in its final stages of construction and will be implanted permanently next to the flagpole at Station 21 in Pacific Beach. SDFRF and SDFD will host two events in Pacific Beach to commemorate the the 9/11 terrorist attacks on New York City’s World Trade Center a decade ago. On Sept. 9, city leaders — including Fire Chief Javier Mainar, Police Chief William Lansdowne and District 2 City Councilman Kevin Faulconer — will unveil a 9/11 commemorative memorial at Pacific Beach Fire Station 21. SDFRF will also present special guest speaker retired FDNY Lt. Joseph Torrillo, who will tell his story of survival during the 9/11 attacks and how he was mistakenly thought to have perished in the rubble. Following the unveiling ceremony, the SDFRF will hold a fundraising event at Firehouse, located adjacent to Station 21, to raise funds for the foundation. The free fundraiser will feature drink specials, prizes and firefighter guests. The memorial unveiling will take place at 10:30 a.m. on Sept. 9 at Fire Station 21, located at 750 Grand Ave. SDFRF’s fundraiser will take place from 5 to 8 p.m. at Firehouse, located at 722 Grand Ave. No tickets are required for either event.

Environmental groups and volunteers will hit the shores and inland communities in droves Saturday, Sept. 17 from 9 a.m. to noon as the yearly tradition of cleaning up marine debris returns during California Coastal Cleanup Day. San Diego Coastkeeper, along with volunteers from I Love a Clean San Diego are coordinating the event’s San Diego County areas during what has grown into an international event. The collected debris gives environmental groups a picture of the pollution breakdown that finds its way to the ocean. The top culprits are traditionally cigarette butts, plastics and styrofoam food containers, said Alicia Glassco, San Diego Coastkeeper’s education and marine debris manager. “We use a lot of the information from the cleanup day to help communicate about the needs of our environment. [The event] incorporates 10,000 volunteers removing 200,000 pounds of trash … that data is super important, as it adds on to the data from the rest of the year,” Glassco said. In addition to helping with the California Coastal Cleanup Day, Glassco also participated in a campaign to reduce waste through legislation that would make it illegal for restaurants to distribute styrofoam food containers. Once contaminated with food, the foam containers are difficult to recycle, Glassco said. The bill is currently working its way through the California Assembly. As state lawmakers continue to make progress on the bill, an estimated 10,000 volunteers will be hitting the pavement at more than 90 sites throughout the county on Saturday, said Morgan Justice-Black, director of development and marketing for I Love a Clean San Diego. Volunteers are encouraged to bring their own buckets, gloves and debris containers. “We do encourage people to stay within their communities,” Justice-Black said. “But for those who want to pick up a ton of trash elsewhere, there are plenty of sites [such as] the area between the I-94 and I-8 corridor(s).” It’s not every day residents get to participate in an organized, international cleanup event, Justice-Back said. Volunteers like Santa Clara Point site captain Maruta Gardener have been keeping the event a local tradition for more than eight years, Justice-Black said. Gardener agrees. “It’s really exciting because we get so many families that come out,” Gardener said. “Their kids get excited about doing something for their community. We used to just have 10 or 12 volunteers. But now we have 72 people registered so far [for Saturday].” Area cleanup sites include Mission Bay, La Jolla Shores, Pacific Beach, Mission Beach and Ocean Beach. Volunteers are encouraged to download and fill out a registration form prior to showing up to the cleanup. Comprehensive site maps, registration forms and additional information about the event can be accessed at www.cleanupday.org.

La Jolla fitness club owner proves fitness on Mt. Kilimanjaro
BRANDIE SHARPE Brandie Sharpe, owner of Sharpe Fitness and CrossFit La Jolla in Bird Rock, recently returned from an extreme fitness adventure — successfully reaching the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Sharpe said the opportunity to climb Africa’s highest mountaian came “at the last minute,” and she had just three months to train for the challenge. “It was a beautiful, hard, amazing, inspiring and completely rewarding trip,” Sharpe said. “The hike was not hard physically on the feet and body, but all eight days combined and all that came with those days was very challenging.” Sharpe said the altitude and weather conditions were challenges, but the Tanzanian people made the adventure “unlike anything I have ever experienced.” — Kendra Hartmann

CIVICreport La Jolla Community Planning Association, Sept. 1 BY MARIKO LAMB | VILLAGE NEWS
LJCPA president’s appeal never filed After contentious debate on the issue, the La Jolla Community Planning Association (LJCPA) voted during its meeting on Sept. 1 to commend Matt Peterson and his clients for their civic mindedness and for changes made to their project, located at 1912 Spindrift Drive, that conforms to the LJCPA’s original concerns. The debate over the motion was stimulated from the fact that after last month’s meeting, the LJCPA voted to appeal the hearing officer’s approval of the project. Yet the appeal was never filed with the city. During last month’s LJCPA meeting, the project’s architect, LJCPA President Tony Crisafi, recused himself from the project hearing as attorney Matt Peterson presented the project on Crisafi’s behalf. Rob Whittemore, LJCPA vice president, took charge of the meeting during that time. Following some discussion of the project, the trustees voted to appeal the hearing officer’s approval due mainly to opposition to the design’s requirement for parking in the front yard. Phil Merton, the LJCPA trustee who spearheaded the opposition to the project and was charged with filing the appeal, cited that approval of a project with front-yard parking would set a horrible precedent for future projects in La Jolla Shores. Merton — who was absent at the Sept. 1 meeting — sent a letter to the trustees indicating that the project had recently been revised to alleviate the trustees’ concerns from their previous meeting in August.
“I met briefly with Matt Peterson and reviewed drawings of the revised design with an enclosed parking garage and automobile stacking lift accommodating two cars. That revised design is before you this evening,” Merton stated in the letter. “In my opinion, the location of the garage with the proposed parking lift as depicted in the revised design now complies with the single-family zone development regulations of the La Jolla Shores PDO and the general parking regulations of the San Diego Municipal Code. As such, I urge you to approve the revised design. Secondly, I would like to recognize Matt Peterson and publicly thank him for his role in persuading his plan to revise the project’s design to alleviate the concerns of the La Jolla CPA.” Because an appeal was not filed before the deadline, the city gave coastal development permits to the project’s developers who intend to move forward with the revised design plans. Peterson addressed the LJCPA trustees at the meeting regarding their concerns with the project. “We wanted to show you that we are listening to you, we are responding to you. We’re showing good faith,” he said. “Sometimes it take a little back and forth, but I think in final analysis, we’ve had two or three projects now that have been greatly improved as a result of this process.” He also spoke to several trustees’ concerns that the LJCPA president still should have filed the appeal regardless of the fact that it was his own project. “If he’s conflicted from participating in the hearing itself as president, he is also conflicted in filing an appeal for a project he’s an architect for,” Peterson said. Peterson said that in speaking with
Merton, the issue of the appeal was never discussed. “I think really what happened is that Phil was directed to do it, and he felt that this met his concerns and most of yours. Maybe he decided not to do it. Maybe he forgot to do it when he was leaving on vacation. I don’t know,” Peterson said. “I didn’t go meet with Phil and say, ‘Will you not file an appeal?’ It was never an issue. We never talked about it.” Despite some concerns, most of the trustees agreed that so long as the presentation was treated as information only and no action vote was taken for the project’s approval or disapproval, commending the efforts of the applicant for good-will efforts was appropriate. LJCPA searching for funding Trustee Joe LaCava proposed an idea for a supplemental mechanism for anonymous donations to the LJCPA through the La Jolla Town Council Foundation, a nonprofit organization that exists to fund and assist positive community projects in La Jolla. The motion was not passed due to trustee concerns of the LJCPA’s association with another local nonprofit organization. “Any connection at all with another group is wrong because people might think that we are biased by another organization,” said LJCPA trustee Cindy Thorsen. LJCPA Vice President Rob Whittemore suggested the board look into an alternative mechanism for anonymous donations made to the LJCPA through the San Diego Foundation instead because it is not a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. The only source of funds for the LJCPA is by cash-only anonymous donations at the monthly meetings.
Public to get beautification overview The La Jolla Parks and Beaches Committee will host a “Beautification of Coast Boulevard Walkway” community workshop for La Jollans to become oriented with the Children’s Pool site and history of the La Jolla Coastline Plan, discuss options for improvements, suggest funding sources and view design plans for the new lifeguard tower and restroom atop Children’s Pool Park. “At registration, people will receive a questionnaire about what they see — what they like and dislike — and how it can be improved,” said Phyllis Minick, La Jolla Parks and Beaches treasurer and sponsor of the workshop. “Based on community recommendations, landscape architect Jim Neri will establish an architectural plan for the Children’s Pool area.” The community workshop will take place on Oct. 1 from 8 a.m. to noon at the Children’s Pool lifeguard station. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Fresh approach to appeal procedures The LJCPA voted to approve three of four policy recommendations proposed by trustee Devin Burstein, chair of the ad hoc committee on operating policies. The LJCPA approved the committee’s recommendation for the LJCPA to retain operating policies and have the policies submitted to the city for approval, delete the policies of March 6, 2008 as a duplicate of those on Jan. 8, 2009 and adopt the ad hoc committee-created appeal procedures presented to the LJCPA trustees. The appeal procedures included a “whereas clause” which would make all projects that were determined “adverse
decisions” by the LJCPA come back to the planning association for an affirmative vote to appeal. Currently, the LJCPA files an automatic appeal when the appeal period runs out prior to the next meeting. “The main idea is to encourage the applicant and the city to schedule hearings so we don’t run into the problem of an automatic appeal,” Burstein said. “In the rare instance when an automatic appeal occurs, the president is required to file the appeal and at the next meeting the item is placed on the agenda and we can vote to ratify the appeal or not.” The committee’s proposal to delete a policy that entitles the LJCPA to govern the operating policies and procedures of the Community Joint Committees and Boards will be considered at the LJCPA’s next meeting on Oct. 6. Other community news • The LJCPA voted to appeal the city hearing officer’s approval of the proposed development at 8470 Whale Watch Way. • The LJCPA approved street closures on Girard Avenue between Pearl and Genter streets from Sept. 30 to Oct. 2 for the La Jolla Art and Wine Festival and street closures of Girard and Prospect streets on Dec. 4 for the 54th annual La Jolla Christmas Parade and Holiday Festival. The La Jolla Traffic and Transportation committee approved both actions during its board meeting on Aug. 25. • The LJCPA approved the city’s proposed storm drain improvements, slope repair and revegetation on environmentally sensitive lands in a canyon adjacent to two residences on Via Rialto. • The Nooren Residence and Riford Center projects were pulled from the consent agenda for reconsideration. The projects will be discussed at the LJCPA’s next meeting on Oct. 6.

Mixing &mingling THE CHAMBER’S MISSION
The Golden Triangle Chamber of Commerce strengthens businesses and the community through leadership, prosperity, information, communication, and community involvement.
Harry’s Bar and American Grill In July, Marla and Peter Ariza opened Naturale Hair Blows — the first all natural and organic blow-dry bar — located at 7932 Ivanhoe Ave. in La Jolla. The blow-dry bar concept skips the cut-and-color routine. Instead, clients choose from a hairstyle menu including a wash, dry and style in 30 minutes or less. The trend has become increasingly popular in Latin America and Europe. The Arizas, however, recognized the immense potential of a blow-dry bar in La Jolla. “We are so thrilled to be opening our first location in La Jolla,” said Marla Ariza. “My husband grew up in La Jolla and we have always wanted to bring a new and fresh concept to the community as the people of La Jolla are always so open to innovative ideas.” The salon offers a full-range of hairstyles for flat, affordable rates regardless of hair length. Styles are inspired by the natural elements — water, wind, earth and fire. For $30, clients can enjoy organic teas and beverages in a chic environment while stylists create hairstyles such as the “pure waterfall” and “sunset kissed” blowouts. The Arizas are dedicated to making everything about the salon as organic as possible. Building materials include chemical-free materials and recycled resin, and stylists use energy-saving Paul Mitchell wood
grain-printed dryers and all-natural hair-care products for their signature professional blowouts. Naturale Hair Blows also offers make-up artistry in conjunction with the blowouts for events such as birthdays, girls’ nights out or weddings. For more information or to make an appointment with Naturale Hair Blows, visit www.naturalhairblows.com or call (858) 456-1748. — Mariko Lamb

When perfume in the office becomes a smelly problem David Monks, Fisher & Phillips What do you do when the coworker in the next cubicle reeks of heavy cologne? How do you handle an employee who douses in perfume or strong-scented lotion, irritating the sinuses of customers? Both employers and employees face issues when it comes to the use of cologne and perfume in the workplace. To help everyone involved, Fisher & Phillips ( w w w. l a b o r l a w ye r s . c o m ) , a national labor and employment law firm with a local office in the La Jolla area, has released a list of tips for dealing with perfume and cologne issues. “What might seem like a relatively minor matter can turn into a potential lawsuit if an employee or customer has an allergic reaction to a scent or is unable to perform their duties due to overpowering scents causing eye irritation or throat swelling,” said David Monks, partner at Fisher & Phillips. “Courts have already ruled that employers have a duty to reasonably accommodate requests by employees if scents become an overwhelming burden,” Monks added. To help avoid potential conflicts, Fisher & Phillips has released a list of tips for dealing with fragrance in the workplace for both employers and employees alike. Top tips relating to fragrance in the workplace: • For employees, start off by reviewing your fragrance choices before heading to work. Are you often receiving comments about your perfume or cologne? Perhaps it is applied too strongly. • Employers should consider adding to their employee handbooks a clause about fragrance that clearly states an employee may be requested to minimize or eliminate a cologne, perfume or heavily scented deodorant. • Create guidelines in the employee handbook about what
constitutes the hallmarks of an irritating fragrance: watering eyes, headaches, sneezing and coughing, etc. • If you put in a clause about excessive or irritating fragrance in an employee handbook, be sure to enforce it a consistent manner. Make sure that employees know the consequences for non-compliance. As an employee, familiarize yourself with what is allowed and not allowed before you spritz. • Try to find the right balance between requests to both allow and eliminate fragrance. Employers and employees can work together on a variety of solutions, including the installation of air purifiers, addition of fans to circulate air in the area and relocation of employees with sensitivity to an area near a window or door. This is a real issue facing employers nationwide. In 2010, the city of Detroit settled a lawsuit brought by a city planner who claimed she was allergic to a coworker's perfume, making it difficult for her to breathe. The settlement of her claim under the Americans With Disabilities Act included a substantial monetary payment to the employee, as well as the adoption of a “no scent” policy in city offices. To learn more about fragrance and cologne issues and other workplace topics, visit www.laborlawyers.com. — Fisher and Phillips’ La Jolla office is located at 4747 Executive Drive, Suite 1000.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR La Jolla Community Planning Association says ‘No harm, no foul’ “No harm, no foul” was the comment of La Jolla Community Planning Association (LJCPA) Trustee Michael Costello at the LJCPA’s Sept. 1 meeting. Moreover, this appeared to be the mindset of each of the other LJCPA trustees who sat regretfully silent as their president, Tony Crisafi, declined to answer the question of the evening: “Why did you not file an appeal of 1912 Sprindrift?,” asked by trustee and former LJCPA president Joe La Cava. On Aug. 3, a city of San Diego hearing officer approved the demolition of a single-story residence at 1912 Spindrift and the construction of a new two-story residence, for which Crisafi is the project architect. At their Aug. 4 meeting, the LJCPA trustees discussed in detail whether or not to appeal the hearing officer’s approval of Mr. Crisafi’s project. During this meeting, Matt Peterson, the project’s attorney, raised the question to the LJCPA, “Why is this item on the agenda tonight?” LJCPA Vice President Rob Whittemore replied, “The hearing officer approved the project and so the issue tonight is whether or not the LJCPA should appeal that decision.” Trustees Fitzgerald and Manno agreed. Trustee Phil Merten emphasized the key issue is to not allow parking in the front yard of the home designed by Mr. Crisafi. Trustees Bond, Costello, Gabsch, Little, Fitzgerald, Courtney, Weiss and LJCPA members Dale Naegle, Kathleen Neil and members of the public participated in the
discussion supporting the appeal of Mr. Crisafi’s project. Despite the 8-4 vote by the trustees to appeal the hearing officer’s decision, Mr. Crisafi chose not to file the appeal as required by the by-laws of the LJCPA. By doing so, Mr. Crisafi’s client has an approved project. His project will now not have to endure the expensive environmental review process caused by such LJCPA appeals; Mr. Crisafi’s actions saved his client months of review time and thousands of dollars. Matt Peterson, however, did answer the question later in the evening. The LJCPA trustees were told that Mr. Crisafi, Mr. Merten and he had reached a “compromise agreement” to resolve the project’s parking issues. “We found a way to attach a garage, and we’re going to use a stacking lift system to satisfy the street-parking requirement,” he said. Their “compromised agreement,” however, was not reached at a noticed public meeting, nor was it placed on an LJCPA agenda as required by City Council policy 600-24 and the Brown Act. None of the above-mentioned LJCPA trustees, LJCPA members or members of the public who had previously supported the appeal of 1912 Spindrift had any participation in their “compromised agreement.” It was only at the Sept. 1 LJCPA meeting — and after the 10-day appeal period expired — that the other LJCPA trustees, LJCPA members and the public were informed of their “compromised agreement” in the conspicuous absence of Trustee Phil Merten. We now know why Mr. Crisafi did not appeal 1912 Spindrift or answer Mr.

ONE MINUTE WITH LEON CAMPBELL Entertainment is a necessity. It has nothing to do with nutrition, shelter, water and protection from enemies. In past generations, and even today in some parts of the world, nearly all of the waking hours are spent simply surviving. The essential needs of the human body and reproduction are the objects of living. However, today such essentials can be provided by working only eight hours a day, five days a week. This leaves eight hours for five days, together with two full
days, to spend not seeking survival. The brain, already well-nourished, seeks stimulation. Without stimulation depression follows with a decline in health, even death. Entertainment provides stimulation. Therefore, it is a necessity. The choice of entertainment is up to the individual, such as spectator sports, movies or just reading. I like to think that this commentary is entertaining and therefore a necessity. If it is not entertaining, and therefore not a necessity, I like to think of it as a luxury.” — Leon Campbell lives in La Jolla
La Cava’s question. He and Mr. Peterson reached a “compromised agreement” with Trustee Merten. Is this the way decisions are made at the LJCPA? “No harm, no foul” Mr. Costello? The credibility and trustworthiness of the LJCPA has been “harmed” and every applicant that comes in front of the LJCPA has been “fouled.” Mr. Crisafi’s and Mr. Merten’s dealings of conducting the people’s business behind close doors must end. The question now is: “Will the LJCPA Trustees demand their immediate resignation or continue to ignore their blatant violations of Council policy 600-24 and the Brown Act?” Kim Whitney, LJCPA member
A different side to racing shows darker pasttime I cannot see how so many people go to horse races for entertainment. When I see horses sweating and running fast to the utmost of their ability, I question how anyone can take pleasure watching the races. If you can see also what happens to some of the horses when they are injured and can no longer race and how they are put to sleep. I wonder how any person can derive pleasure from torturing horses who are not created for racing but for a life of goodness with owners who can keep them on a ranch and so on for riding or other enjoyable measures. People who go to the races should be pitied for their lack of compassion. They should stop abusing God’s creatures. Frieda L. Levinsky La Jolla

BIRDSTOCK brings art, music — and a taste of the 1960s — to Bird Rock BY MARIKO LAMB
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 2011 | VOL. 16, NO. 50
burlesque BY DIANA CAVAGNARO
The Bird Rock Community Council (BRCC) will host its second annual “Birdstock” music festival on Sept. 11 from 3 to 7 p.m. at Bird Rock Elementary Park. Birdstock began last year as a result of the suspension of another annual event — Taste of Bird Rock — due to traffic-control problems, safety issues and the expense of meeting the city’s permitting requirements. The idea for the event was hatched by Pamela Garvey, one of the leading organizers of the Taste of Bird Rock. “[Pamela] and my wife, Felicia, have done a fantastic job with making the fundraisers worthwhile and successful,” said BRCC President Joe Parker. “The idea is to have a free, family event where the neighbors can come together — like at Taste of Bird Rock — with the original intent to have some kind of local summer concert in the park.” This year, Birdstock will again feature rock ’n’ roll headliner The Jones Revival Band, a local Bird Rock favorite that covers a wide range of greatest hits that will leave no audience member disappointed — no matter the age or genre preference. Other treats include a picnic catered by Naked Pizza, a snack booth hosted by the Bird Rock Elementary Peace Patrol and community art projects put on by the Bird Rock Artist Guild. The “Art Alive” corner will showcase the latest creations by Bird Rock Artist Guild members and a few art projects that can only be completed by enlisting the help of community members.

One such project is a community-created chalk la strada — an Italian-style, chalked-up “peace of art” on the pavement that anyone at the event can help fill in. “It is improvisational art, where anyone, any age can participate and help create a giant peace symbol out of sidewalk chalk,” said Jane Wheeler, Bird Rock Artist Guild member. “Then we will take a group photo of the peace sign and everyone at Birdstock, sending out a message of peace on the anniversary of 9/11.” Another art project requiring community-assistance will also assist the community in return. Last year, the Waverly Gate Community Wall was created in order to honor members of the Bird Rock community, raise funds for Bird Rock Elementary and connect the community through a beautification project located near the new Waverly Gate entrance. The wall is adorned with tiles from last year’s Birdstock when former BRCC president Joe LaCava was honored for his dedication to the community and his instrumental role in making the Waverly entrance a real-
ity. This year, guests at Birdstock have something else to celebrate — the 60th anniversary of Bird Rock Elementary School. In honor of the school, the wall’s main facade will contain a dedication to Bird Rock Elementary’s longevity and its role as a uniting force in the community. Visitors can create their own fused glass for the Waverly Wall at the fused glass station or purchase a community tile to dedicate to a family member, friend, organization or even themselves to help honor the school that has been a community builder for 60 years. Suggested donation to the festival is $5. All proceeds from the event will benefit Bird Rock Elementary School, located at 700 Van Nuys St.
The 35th annual Monte Carlo Gala at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego. La Jolla, will take place on Sept. 10. This year, the popular event will be themed “Monte Carlo Goes Burlesque,” and will feature the style icon Dita Von Teese. The queen of burlesque is known for her 1940s pin-up girl look and became famous as the “girl in the glass” with her Martini Glass show. Her shows feature ornate sets and haute couture costumes influenced by vintage lingerie. She has performed all over the world at events for Luis Vuitton, Cartier, Chopard and Marc Jacobs — to name a few. Von Teese has been credited with bringing back Old Hollywood glamour and has topped the best-dressed lists the world over. The fashion icon is frequently seen in the front rows of top fashion shows and has modeled in the Jean Paul Gaultier show for Fashion Week. At this year's event, San Diego visionaries Valerie Cooper and David C. Copley team up as event cochairs. The evening, the dress code for which is “club chic,” will take everyone on a journey of fantasy, starting with the boudoir-inspired theme. Guest will enjoy cocktails, seaside dining and an over-the-top “Dita” performance. The event will continue with the after party, which

will include a late-night tantalizing encore by the “Burlesque Superheroine.” All the proceeds from Monte Carlo Goes Burlesque will support the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego’s education programs and exhibitions. To reserve tickets or tables, contact Cynthia Tuomi at email@example.com or (858) 4543541, ext. 118.

La Jolla Playhouse resident dance group puts history, women’s struggles center stage BY CHARLENE BALDRIDGE | VILLAGE NEWS Tonight (Sept. 8) at the Theodore and Adele Shank Theatre, La Jolla Playhouse, Eveoke Dance Theatre mounts “Las Mariposas,” a captivating dance work based on Julia Alvarez’s 1994 novel, “In the Time of the Butterflies.” Co-created by Eveoke artistic director Erika Malone and resident choreographer Erica Aisha Moore, “Las Mariposas” premiered at 10th Avenue Theatre late last year. Eveoke Dance Theatre holds a residency in the La Jolla Playhouse’s Resident Theatre Program, spearheaded by artistic director Christopher Ashley, who said, “The Resident Theatre Program has become an integral part of the Play-
house’s programming, and we are ecstatic about its success over the last three seasons. We are especially excited to have Eveoke — our first dance organization — as the resident company, broadening the spectrum of artistic offerings at the Playhouse. This innovative troupe brings a fresh vision to each of their projects, with strong ties to the community through their numerous education and outreach programs.” The residency program encourages artistic development of up-and-coming performing arts organizations and provides a temporary home each year to one of the many local troupes that lack permanent venues. Previous resident
theatre appointees include Mo’olelo Performing Arts Company, Moxie Theatre and San Diego Asian American Repertory Theatre. “Las Mariposas” (The Butterflies) tells the true story of three sisters who were brutally murdered in November 1960 for their participation in the resistance movement against Rafael Trujillo, thendictator of the Dominican Republic. A fourth sister, Déde Mirabal, survived, and in her own autobiographical work told the story upon which Alvarez based her best-selling novel. Eveoke’s “Las Mariposas” begins as Déde introduces her three vivid and individualistic sisters, Patria, Minerva and
Maria Teresa. As the narrative unfolds, each of the adult women is juxtaposed by a youthful self, embodied by four younger dancers. Other dancers represent townspeople, Trujillo, figures of magical realism, and assassins. A character named Butterfly embodies women’s dedication and sacrifice in time of political upheaval. “Las Mariposas” utilizes magical realism, modern dance and text from the novel. “I’ve seen many adaptations of my novel,” said Alvarez, “but the Eveoke performance has been the adaptation that most moved me.” Alvarez praised Eveoke’s creativity and

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT
La Jolla artist showcases multiple talents at ArtWalk BY MARIKO LAMB | VILLAGE NEWS Local La Jollan Debbie Dorsee is ingrained into the fabric of La Jolla in more ways than one — from business to politics to art. She will showcase several of her talents at this year’s ArtWalk on the Bay, an event illustrating her abilities both onstage and behind the scenes. ArtWalk on the Bay is a free two-day festival featuring art, music, food, entertainment and KidsWalk “artivities” at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront Park. The festival will present thousands of art pieces by more than 150 of San Diego’s top artists. In ArtWalk’s booth No. 142, it will be hard to miss Dorsee’s contemporary mixed-media images of organic nature exploding with a vividly bright color schemes. On display will be her “After the Fires” series, an original collection of mixed media works symbolizing nature’s strength and resilience amid destruction. The theme of her collection was inspired by her experience assisting in relief efforts after the 2003 and 2007 wildfires in San Diego County. She will also showcase her new series, titled “The 4 Elements,” a collection of images from Hawaii transformed in her contemporary and mixed-media style to demonstrate the vibrancy of nature’s primary elements — earth, wind, fire and water. In addition to exhibiting her contemporary mixed-media artwork, oils and prints at the festival, Dorsee was heavily
involved in the event’s production. Visitors can particularly thank her for the fact that the event is free. “I am the person that raises all the sponsorship dollars to make the event happen,” she said. This year, Dorsee brought in top sponsors including Alaska Airlines, Scripps, Subaru and other notable brands through

The Dorsee Company — a business development, community relations and event production company that she founded in 2003. In addition to her duties as an artist and business owner, the local “mover and shaker” has her hands full with community responsibilities, including serving as a trustee on the La Jolla Town Council, advocating for wildfire recovery in counties across Southern California and acting as a
member of numerous organizations in San Diego. “As a native San Diegan, I deeply care about my community,” she said of her community involvement. ArtWalk on the Bay will take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sept. 10-11 at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront Park, located at 1 Park Blvd. To check out Dorsee’s artwork before the show, visit www.dorseedesigns.com.
La Jolla Town Council members enjoy a ‘Day at the Races’ La Jolla Town Council (LJTC) trustees, friends and members of the La Jolla community took advantage of the final weekend to enjoy the Del Mar races with a 1940s-themed “Day at the Races” fundraising event on Sept. 2. Guests started with a pre-party at Barfly, a limo shuttle to the Del Mar racetrack and an evening of food, drinks and horse betting in the Betty Grable Celebrity Suite overlooking the finish line. During the event, nearly every guest won a raffle or bestdressed prize, even if they didn’t win their wagers during the races. Following the races, guests enjoyed a concert by Fitz and the Tantrums, a soulful indie pop band from Los Angeles. Organizers of the event included LJTC secretary Sonia Olivas, second vice president John Weinstein, trustee Mary Soriano and executive director Valerie Strocco.
Upcoming LJTC events include a charity poker tournament on the first Tuesday of each month starting in October, and a SunSetter Community Happy Hour on the third Thursday of each month. For more information about upcoming events with the LJTC, visit www.lajollatowncouncil.org or call Valerie Strocco at (858) 454-1444. — Mariko Lamb
The event included a contest for best 1940s-themed dress. Left, winners of the contest were LJTC trustee Steve Haskins and Yolanda De Riquer. MARIKO LAMB | Village News

eliminated within eight months. Before and after the 60-minute address, attendees enjoyed various libations and a range of stunningly delicious appetizers from Roppongi Restaurant. Additional Distinguished Speaker Series events are scheduled for the coming months.
with Vincent Andrunas La Jolla’s Riford Center was filled to capacity on Aug. 25 for its second Distinguished Speaker Series. Mayor Jerry Sanders, whose second (and last) term will end in December 2012, spoke before a broadly approving audience that included his well-known wife, Rana Sampson. He spoke of never having been in politics before running for mayor in 2005 and of his plans for resolving the pension problem with a 401(k) plan, of expanding the Convention Center (which would return profits quickly), and of outsourcing fleet services and I.T. for significant savings. He said he feels an entertainment zone in east downtown would enhance business and keep the Chargers here without impacting the general fund, and announced that the structural deficit (excess of the cost of city services compared to revenues that sustain it) will be Carnaval: top: Mick and Lisette Farrell (event chairs), Peter and Olivia Farrell (honorary chairs; celebrating her birthday), Lori and Bill Walton.

The New Children’s Museum (NCM) makes art- and imagination-building activities available to children 365 days a year. Its Island Avenue facility, a beautiful addition to downtown San Diego’s architectural landscape, has served 545,000 visitors since opening in May 2008. Twenty percent come for free, through programs funded largely at fabulous annual galas. Lisette and Mick Farrell chaired the Aug. 27 gala; Olivia and Peter Farrell were honorary chairs. Having grown up in Panama, Lisette loved the “carnaval” celebrations of Central and South America (it’s biggest in Brazil). She chose the theme “Carnaval do Rio,” gathered an energetic committee (including enthusiastic Brazilians) and worked very hard for nine months to make it really spectacular. (Lisette called the event her “first baby.”) Guests bought up all 330 tickets weeks in advance, eager to “samba with a purpose.” Many came elaborately costumed. Caipirinha cocktails, tasty street fare, music, and dancers filled the museum and the avenue (cordoned off for the evening). Entertainment was everywhere, with 55 performers from Sol-eMar in 82 performances throughout the evening. At dinnertime, musicians raucously led guests to colorfully decorated tables awaiting under the stars. The festive nightclub-like setting featured two stages, on which capoeira (martial-arts dancers) and others performed. A churrascaria dinner was served rodizio-style. Waiters brought intricate salads and large bowls of delectable vegetables for diners to pass and serve themselves, later returning repeatedly with marinated meats and chicken. Diners had bi-colored disks; turning it from green to red signified satiation. A Brazilian vocalist sang softly during dinner. Later, Steve Hamann’s not-so-soft voice exhorted auction bidders, who
Mozart: right: Radomir and Nancy Bojanic (she’s MM founder and executive director), Esther Nahama (Club Amadeus chair), Lorna York (Madison Gallery owner) and fiancé Darrel Drinan
responded generously (this was far too energetic a party for a silent auction). An inspiring video showed how innovation and creativity leads to great products and accomplishments — an idea that NCM strives to instill in children. Pledges were solicited, quickly reaching $100,000 — the amount of a matching grant jointly offered by the Farrell Family Foundation and an anonymous donor. Donations continued, and in the end, the event netted more than $500,000 to further NCM’s programs. Emcee Tania Luviano thanked everyone, and fireworks immediately began in the night sky (actually, from the nearby Summer Pops), but the party was by no means over. Costumed entertainers and musicians paraded impressively in the street, around a specially commissioned float. Indoors, an after-party featured singer/dancer Dandara (“The Tina Turner of Brazil”), more entertainment and more edibles. Unlike many parties that run out of food (or steam), this party kept going and going — like that annoying battery bunny, but much more fun! Truthfully, this was one of San Diego’s best and most entertaining galas.
*** Lorna York hosted more than 100 members of Mainly Mozart’s elite Club Amadeus support group at her Madison Gallery on Aug. 28. Located on Prospect Street, the venue was perfect for these artsmart music lovers, who enjoyed sipping wine and champagne while admiring the gallery’s fine modern and contemporary paintings and sculptures. The afternoon’s hour-long concert featured Beethoven’s Serenade in D and Dohnanyi’s Serenade in C. With San Diego Symphony concertmaster Jeff Thayer played violin, Cynthia Phelps of the New York Philharmonic on viola and UCSD music performance professor Charles Curtis on cello, the program was superb — not surprising with such stellar musicians and Mainly Mozart’s reputation for excellence. Post-concert, copious appetizers and desserts were served. Lorna presented guests with hardbound books about international artist Luc Leestemaker, prominently represented in her gallery.

Too many choices in life
for directions, cash or credit, go out or stay home. The list can go on ad infinitum — it is just a sample of how bombarded we are with constant decision-making. By Natasha Josefowitz, Ph.D. What happens is that our brains get tired. Tierney calls it decision fatigue, For those of you who have not read which explains why ordinarily sensithe article by John Tierney in the New ble people buy junk food, splurge on York Times Magazine of Aug. 24 clothes and let the salesperson talk called, “To choose is to lose,” I will them into an unneeded upgrade.

So how do we navigate a world and doing nothing — avoiding makof endless choices?” ing any decision, which could also We are not aware during our daily lead to unintended consequences. activities of how many choices Psychologist Ray F.

is displayed, stop making choices and start asking the salesperson, “What do you suggest?” The more options — whether buying a car or ordering a suit — the quicker fatigue sets in and so one chooses the default option. In an experiment involving the timing of paroles given or refused, 1,100 decisions were analyzed over the course of a year. Prisoners who appeared in front of the judges early in the morning received parole 70 percent of the time, while those who appeared later in the day were paroled less than 10 percent of the time. The fatigued judges chose the default option: remain in jail. What experimenters tried to do next was to see whether the brain can be made to function even when fatigued — and the answer was glucose. Glucose could reverse the brain’s propensity to stop deciding and give it a burst of energy. This explains the dieter’s problem with willpower. We start off refusing the doughnut for breakfast, but by dinner have no willpower left for the chocolate cake. The catch-22 is that in order not to eat, the dieter needs willpower, but in order to have willpower, the dieter needs to eat. Baumeister showed that, in order to
start making good choices again once depleted, people need “a sugary pickme-up,” but not a beverage containing a diet sweetener. The prisoners who normally would have that 10 percent chance of getting paroled by appearing in the afternoon in front of tired judges were taken in front of judges who had just eaten and got approved 60 percent of the time. I personally don’t know how much choice prisoners have in the timing of their appearances. I’m guessing not much, but according to this research, the judges should find the opportunity to eat a snack before their brains start turning off. People with the best self-control are the ones who structure their lives so as to conserve willpower. They don’t schedule back-to-back meetings, avoid all-you-can-eat buffets, and instead of having to decide whether to exercise every morning, they schedule it in advance. Even the wisest people won’t make good choices when their glucose is low. So, don’t make decisions late in the day or on an empty stomach. The best decision makers, Baumeister says, are the ones who know when not to trust themselves. We all now have a good excuse for that piece of chocolate mid-afternoon.
CONTINUED FROM Page 9 commitment to human rights and its dedication to educating the community through conversations with the audience. Post-show discussions with dancers, the creative team and community partners take place Saturday evenings. “In our world today, we are called to become global citizens; we have shared responsibilities if we are to create a world that is based on social justice for all,” said executive director Nikki Dunnan. From its inception in 1994, Eveoke Dance Theatre has been dedicated to women and women’s works. One need only recall its stunning 2006 dance theatre work “Soul of a Young Girl: Dances of Anne Frank.” In November, the U.S. Embassy will sponsor an Eveoke Dance Theatre tour of “Las Mariposas” to Santo Domingo and Santiago in the Dominican Republic. “We are very excited and honored at the idea of bringing a story back to its geographical and historical roots,” Dunnan said. “We hope to take the piece to the small village where the Mirabal sisters lived, and where Déde still lives today.” “Las Mariposas” plays at 7:30 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays and 2:30 p.m. Sundays through Sept. 25 at the Shank Theatre, La Jolla Playhouse, $25 ($20 student/senior).

MIND, BODY & SOUL Alzheimer’s Disease Early Detection Technology Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive and as-yet incurable condition; yet doctors and scientists are recommending new PET brain scans effective for early detection of the disease as an aid in determining appropriate medical treatment and helping patients plan for the future. An Alzheimer’s diagnosis is a lifealtering, stressful and upsetting circumstance for anyone. Yet, the possibility of optimal symptom and time management gives both patients and caregivers the chance to seize a better future. As PET scans reach the marketplace and patients begin to utilize medical technology to help them cope with the possible onset of
Alzheimer’s disease, treatment and lifestyle adjustments may help improve overall quality of life for those suffering from memory decline. And until PET scans are fully integrated into healthcare facilities, the experienced professionals at Innovative Healthcare Consultants are here to help. Innovative Healthcare Consultants offers clients a dedicated, empathetic and personal outlet with the details involved in caring for an elderly parent or relative. As local leaders in geriatric healthcare management, we provide elder care planning in order to lift the burden of making difficult and critical care decisions off our clients’ shoulders – not just at the specific time of need or crisis, but throughout the elder’s lifetime. When individuals suspect severe memory decline and possible Alzheimer’s symptoms in their parents or loved ones, they can easily grow overwhelmed trying to determine the next step. Someday, a PET scan may make this process easier for all but in the meantime, Innovative Healthcare can provide the compassionate expertise and support necessary to secure the future for an aging loved one – and guarantee peace of mind in the process. To learn more call us at (877) 731-1442 or see us online at www.innovativehc.com

Back to school = football is here again Knights take View Park in nonleague victory
Torreys trip up Tri-City Eagles, Centurions topple Hilltop Lancers BY ROB STONE | VILLAGE NEWS Behind the performance of junior running back Sage Burmeister (21 carries, 114 yards, 1 TD), the La Jolla Country Day (LJCD) Torreys trumped the Tri-City Christian Eagles, 23-12, in their season opener at Country Day on Sept. 2. A seven-yard carry for a touchdown by junior Colin McMahon (11 carries, 64 yards, 1 TD) gave Country Day a slim cushion of 7-6 in the second quarter. But it was Burmeister’s five-yard burst for a score in the fourth quarter that enabled the Torreys to build a 16-12 lead. Later in the fourth quarter, a 12yard interception return for a touchdown by junior linebacker Josh Church (2 INTs, 46 yards, 1 TD) sealed the victory for LJCD.

In other season-opening football action: The University City (UC) Centurions traveled down to the South Bay
to topple the Hilltop Lancers 4234. UC was paced by the play of running backs Sam Haynes (18 carries, 188 yards, 4 TDs), Jordan Green (13 carries, 88yards) and Abraham Jimenez (4 carries, 37 yards, 2 TDs). Meanwhile, the La Jolla Vikings commuted to Carmel Valley, only to suffer a tough 27-7 defeat at the hands of the Mt. Carmel Sundevils. Kenneth Martey (5 carries, 24 yards, 1 TD) blasted the ball into the end zone from 11 yards out to pull La Jolla within six points at 137 in the third quarter. The Vikings were also led by the performances of Mark Pollan (11 carries, 54 yards) and Chance Abbott (4 carries, 51 yards). Finally, in the battle of the Knights, the Bishop's School Knights lanced the View Park Knights from Crenshaw by a score of 35-20 in a contest played at La Jolla High School's Gene Edwards Stadium.
