Israel supporters gather to show desire for peace BY JENNA FRAZIER | VILLAGE NEWS In response to the recent killings of four Israelis by the Palestinian resistance group Hamas, about 100 supporters of the state of Israel gathered at the Congregation Beth El courtyard in University City on Sept. 7 to hold a demonstration calling for a year of peace. The San Diego Israel Coalition (SDIC), a

new grassroots pro-Israel advocacy group, organized the event to coincide with the eve of the Jewish New Year. Supporters gathered in the courtyard and sang the “Star Spangled Banner,” “God Bless America” and “Hatikva,” the Israeli national anthem. After, several crowd members blew shofars, or ancient musical instruments made

of ram’s horns — a common symbol of Rosh Hashanah. “When Jews blow the shofar, it’s a spiritual and intellectual wake-up call to examine our actions and commit to personal improvement for the coming year,” said SDIC co-chair Audrey Jacobs. “This gathering is a symbolic Irwin Jacobs blows a shofar during the San Diego Israel Coalition’s “Shofar for Israel” gathering at the Congrega-

Local teen solos in two planes even before getting his driver’s license


BY JENNA FRAZIER | VILLAGE NEWS Few 16-year-olds can say they learned to fly before they could drive. Tommy Graham II, an incoming La Jolla High School (LJHS) sophomore, celebrated his birthday last week by heading to the Ramona Airport and soloflying two airplanes: a Piper Cherokee trainer he’s flown since age 12 and his father’s Turbo Cessna. After posing for photos, Graham dashed to the DMV to get his driver’s license. “It was a busy day,” he said. “To be honest, I was much more nervous about the driver’s test.” A third-generation aviator, Tommy is named after his grandfather, a World War II pilot who received the Distinguished Flying Cross and three Air Medals after flying 210 combat missions in China. Tommy’s father, Joe, started flying when he was 14 and spent 33 years as a US Airways captain. He has accumulated about 28,000 flight hours. Now that he has his student pilot’s license, Tommy said he couldn’t wait to follow in the family footsteps. “I would absolutely love nothing more than a career in aviation,” he said. “I heard that if

you love your job, you never work a day in your life. That’s exactly what I want to do.” For now, Tommy still has to receive instruction from a flight instructor on the ground. After high school, he hopes to attend the Air Force Academy or Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. Almost every weekend while growing up, Tommy and his father practiced flying from the Montgomery Field Airport where the family planes are based. He has since racked up 80 flight hours. “My dad always hinted that he wanted me to fly,” Tommy said. “I remember one day he put me in the captain seat of the airplane and we pulled up to the runway. He told me to put the throttle in all the way and once the air speed indicator gets to 65, pull back and you’ll be in the air. Then he said he’d tell me what to do from there.” When he’s not up in the air, Tommy serves as the starting center on the LJHS junior varsity football team. He is also a drummer for

The Intellectuals, a rock band he formed with friends about six months ago. Still, aviation remains his primary passion. “It’s true freedom,” he said. “When you’re up there soaring over everything and it’s just you and the airplane, it’s like you’re flying yourself. It’s a feeling unmatched by anything else.”

LeBeau anchored at San Diego’s KGTV and was best known Carol LeBeau for covering medical breakthroughs and other health issues in her “Staying Healthy” reports. LeBeau will speak at a special women’s dessert event at La Jolla Presbyterian Church, 7715 Draper Ave., on Sept. 15 at 7 p.m. about how she “kept mentally and spiritually afloat” throughout her fast-paced career, during which she toured with the Pope, jogged with former President Bill Clinton, interviewed Oprah, traveled to India to cover the aftermath of the 2004 tsunami and collected several awards along the way. When LeBeau first started working for a radio and television station in her hometown of Davenport, Iowa, “women were just breaking into the industry locally,” she said. “It was a challenge to prove myself. I tried to have a good attitude and not think I was going to change the world overnight.” After reading the news on radio, LeBeau got her big break when the one woman in the newsroom moved to another market. “I was dumped rather unceremoniously onto the TV side,” LeBeau said. “I tried to do the best job I could every day and over time I started getSEE CAROL, Page 10

Celebration marks 75 years of La Jolla Post Office BY JENNA FRAZIER | VILLAGE NEWS


KLATT REALTY INC. (858) 454-9672 1124 Wall St., La Jolla



The La Jolla Post Office will commemorate its 75th anniversary with an old-fashioned celebration on Sept. 11 from 2 to 4 p.m. at its location on 1140 Wall St. The United States Postal Service and the La Jolla Historical Society have joined forces for the occasion, which is free to the public. Festivities will include the unveiling of a commemorative brass plaque and insider tours of the post office’s rear quarters and its notable Belle Baranceanu mural, said Janet Evans, the event chairman whose father worked at the post office for 30 years. “I remember during World War II, as a small child, visiting my father at the post office,” Evans said. “My mother would lift me up so I could look through the grillwork and wave to Daddy.” While La Jolla has grown and changed over the years, Evans — whose grandfather first moved to the area in 1924 when he was hired to

build the La Valencia Hotel — said the post office remains a local icon, steadfastly anchored to past traditions. “The post office has been a meeting place for this community all my life,” she said. Guests at the celebration will also be treated to birthday cake and lemonade, along with a flag ceremony by La Jolla’s Boy Scout Troop 4, patriotic music, historical displays and a special cancellation of commemorative stamped envelopes. Several community leaders are included in the event program. La Jolla Postmaster Jeff Olsen will welcome guests and La Jolla Historical Society President Connie Mullin Branscomb will serve as mistress of ceremonies. District 1 City Councilwoman Sherri Lightner will read a proclamation. In light of the celebration, Wall Street will be closed to traffic on Sept. 11 from 1 to 5 p.m. from Ivanhoe Avenue to the alley between Ivanhoe and Herschel Avenue. The La Jolla Historical Society has

implemented a corresponding exhibit, “Postmark La Jolla: History of the U.S. Postal Service in La Jolla,” which is on display through Nov. 8 at the Wisteria Cottage, 780 Prospect St. The exhibit accompanies the society’s fall lecture series, “History of the U.S. Postal Service in La Jolla.” The first lecture was held Aug. 26 and the second will take place on Sept. 16 at 7 p.m. at the Wisteria Cottage. Bram Dijkstra, Ph.D. and emeritus professor of literature at the University of California, San Diego will deliver a lecture titled “Belle Baranceanu, the Public Works of Art Project and the La Jolla Post Office Mural.” The final lecture will be held Oct. 7 at 7 p.m. at the Wisteria Cottage with architectural historian Diane Kane, Ph.D., on “The La Jolla Post Office: Architectural Icon of the Depression Era.” Tickets for the lectures are $10 for society members and $12 for nonmembers. Call (858) 459-5335 or visit for reservations and information.

Yet despite all the challenges, it is vital that every effort be made to reach a final, durable, just and lasting peace between Israelis and Palestinians.” Laurie also called for perseverance, despite previous disappointments during the peace process. “As we listen to the plaintive call of the shofar, let it remind us that, despite all the challenges, we should still dare to dream,” he said. “Let these peace talks continue forward in a positive way.

NEWS 3 Birdstock swoops into Bird Rock THURSDAY · SEPTEMBER 9, 2010 LA JOLLA VILLAGE NEWS


After a mostly dreary summer, umbrellas came out in force to shield beachgoers from the sun over Labor Day weekend at La Jolla Shores. DON BALCH | Village News

Beachgoers celebrate Labor Day quietly BY ANTHONY GENTILE | VILLAGE NEWS City officials estimated 716,600 people ventured out to city beaches during Labor Day weekend Sept. 4-6 — two-thirds fewer than last year. “Weather and cool water temperatures continue to be the driving force for the reduction of beach attendance and related rescue activity,” said Lifeguard Lt. Andy Lerum. In the water, lifeguards made a total of 70 water rescues, 211 medical aids and 4,063 preventative acts at city beaches from Saturday through Monday — a significant decrease from last year. The average water temperature at city beaches for the weekend was below 60 degrees, nearly 15 degrees less than in 2009. On the local sand and streets, things were also relatively quiet. San Diego Police Department Northern Division Lt. Jim Filley said there were

no major incidents within the division, which also includes Mission Beach and Pacific Beach. “As the summer has moved through this alcohol ban, we’re getting more and more compliance,” Filley said. “It was very predictable to me that we were slow, weather not withstanding.” On Saturday through Monday, Northern Division officers made seven misdemeanor arrests, sent a combined 21 drunken individuals to detox and jail, and handed out 41 misdemeanor alcohol citations to go along with 42 misdemeanor citations. Filley was out and around the Northern Division during the weekend, and said Sunday was the busiest beach day. “The beach seemed very, very crowded on Sunday, but the crowds were well-behaved,” he said. “Our parking lots were full.”

Families, friends and neighbors will gather at the first annual Birdstock event on Saturday, Sept. 11 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Bird Rock Elementary School (BRES) park. The Bird Rock Community Council (BRCC) and the Bird Rock Parent Teacher Association have joined forces for the event, which will celebrate the community and welcome the incoming kindergarten class. Local bands will provide live music, and food and drinks will be available for purchase. District 1 City Councilwoman Sherri Lightner will make a special appearance to dedicate the Waverly Gate Entrance, which provides an access point between BRES and Bird Rock Park. Local residents and community leaders worked for years to gather sufficient funding and meet planning guidelines before the gate could be installed.

Janet Wheeler, a Bird Rock resident who has been involved with the neighborhood’s mosaic benches and other local art projects, said the BRCC is organizing a community art project in the form of a “Bird Rock Community Wall” at the Waverly Gate Entrance. Families may purchase commemorative tiles with custom dedications to be embedded in the wall, and guests will be invited to create fused glass tiles to adorn the ramp leading up to the park. In addition, a special plaque will be presented to former BRCC president and community leader Joe LaCava. The plaque will also be embedded into the community wall. “Joe got the ball rolling for the Waverly Gate Entrance and he really helped get the BRCC off the ground,” Wheeler said. Guests are also invited to bring flower petals, twigs, leaves and other elements of nature for an additional “temporary” commu-

nity art installation on the BRES blacktop, Wheeler said. “All the items will be formed into a giant peace sign that will stay there for that day, then be removed later the same day,” Wheeler said. The project is “A Tribute to Andy Goldsworthy,” a British artist who constructed the eggshaped installation in front of the Museum of Contemporary Art on Prospect Street. Admission to Birdstock is free, but donations are welcomed. Fused glass tiles may be purchased at a cost of $20 for five. Commemorative tiles for the Bird Rock Community Wall may be ordered with custom dedications. Small tiles, which are 3-inch-by3inch, are $100 each, and large tiles at 6-inch-by-6-inch are $250 each. All proceeds will benefit BRES. To order a commemorative tile in advance, contact Pamela Garvey at (619) 723-3886.

La Jollans speak out against year-round rope barrier BY JENNA FRAZIER | VILLAGE NEWS Local residents and La Jolla Community Planning Association (LJCPA) board members at a Sept. 2 meeting overwhelmingly opposed the installation of a year-round rope barrier separating people from seals at the Children’s Pool at Casa Beach. The barrier is typically in place from

Dec. 15 to May 15 during seal-pupping season. The question of whether to make it permanent is yet another chapter in a debate that has divided the community for more than a decade, with animal rights activists in favor of preserving the area for seals and local residents who want unrestricted beach access. Dan Daneri, city shoreline park director, addressed the audience and said the rope was intended to help place a safe distance between humans and seals without limiting beach access. “It is simply a buffer zone between humans and seals,” he said. About 20 audience members then spoke during the public comment portion of the meeting, almost all denouncing the barrier. Mark Brown, a La Jollan who worked as a lifeguard at the Children’s Pool in the 1970s, said he has been “harassed and videotaped and threatened” by seal activists while accessing the beach area and added that the idea of a rope barrier “offended” him. Brown added that Randal Hawley, the park ranger supervising the area, was an effective antidote to a rope barrier. Hawley was recently hired using private funding secured by District 1 Councilwoman Sherri Lightner.

“Randy is a good guy and he knows what he’s doing,” Brown said. “He’s mitigated a lot of conflict.” Melinda Merryweather, a longtime La Jolla resident, echoed Brown’s sentiments. “It is my constitutional right to enter the ocean,” she said. “The idea that the city of San Diego is cramming this down our throat is absolutely absurd. No rope should go up.” Many LJCPA board members also voiced disapproval of the rope barrier and supported the ranger program, finally voting to oppose the barrier with a 10-1-2 vote and again with an 11-0-2 vote. Board member Jim Fitzgerald spoke in favor of the rope. “As long as the seals are there and you have people who aren’t familiar with the area and aren’t familiar with wildlife coming there, and the ranger can’t be there at all times, a visual guideline is a good idea,” he said. A hearing officer will decide whether to approve or deny a yearround permanent barrier on Sept. 16 at 8:30 a.m. at City Council Chambers on the 12th floor of the City Administration Building, 202 C St. The decision will be final unless appealed to the city’s Planning Commission.

Special woman left behind a special home Reflections Reflections

By Carol Olten

ometime during the chaotic years of the second World War, a young woman named Phyllis Rahison Eakin arrived in La Jolla. She was smart and pretty, having grown up in Westchester County, New York and graduated from Cornell University with a degree in philosophy. She arrived with two very small daughters whose father soon deserted them, seeming to disappear forever from the face of the earth. But Phyllis was up to the challenge of being a single mom long before it became a popular euphemism. Her philosophy degree didn’t seem to get her very far in the work force but her well-honed mathematical skills helped land a job in aero engineering at General Dynamics Convair, aiding in the war effort. By 1947, she had saved enough to buy a house at 7569 Herschel Ave., an old, wood-shingle cottage originally built in 1909. She raised her two daughters there and as she aged, the house and garden she planted became a lifetime project. She died in her beloved garden in June at age 90, a small, frail woman who until two years ago regularly climbed a double extension ladder to trim the ivy around the top of the chimney. The house and an adjoining structure she built at the rear of the lot has recently been placed on the market for sale for $1.1 million. Both structures are surrounded and engulfed by the trees, vines, shrubs, flowers (and a bamboo forest!) that Phyllis nurtured for 53 years. A small saw with which she trimmed the huge jacaranda tree remains hanging high in the branches along with a rope system she engineered to get to the top. Small sheds and bamboo structures she created with her hands are everywhere in sight as well as the many artistic methods she engineered to hold all hoses with which she hand-watered the gardens. To keep track of time while she gardened, she hung the outdoors with a series of large clocks. But Phyllis was hardly a recluse. Ending her job with General Dynamics, she joined Megatex as a technical writer and, later, the University of California, San Diego in the computer sciences department. Even in later life she travelled extensively — to Indonesia, China, Mexico and throughout Europe. She enjoyed swimming at the Cove, folk dancing and playing folk songs on the recorder and guitar. Her insatiable curiosity led to an interest in the challenge of solving double acrostic puzzles. The inside of her house attests to this interest in many things. There are shelves of books on subjects ranging from the teachings of Buddha to James Thurber. Her interest in Japanese design is attested to in a living room where the quiet mood of Zen reigns. The front door is painted bright red. A tiny kitchen is organized down to the proper hanging of each stainless steel pot. The upstairs contains an attic used as a sewing room with an old cast iron machine and thread boxes neatly grouped according to color. A section of the attic also was used as storage where Phyllis kept detailed files of the various projects she undertook in her garden and house. What will become of this unique and interesting La Jolla woman’s property is anybody’s guess. The house, which merited mention in Pat Schaechlin’s 1978 historical survey, is sandwiched today between apartment buildings and sits across from Heinz Gietz Autohaus, a lone survivor of times past. Chake Balabanian, the listing agent for the property with Coldwell Banker, is sympathetic to its historical cause. “It would be a shame,” she said, “ to lose so much history of one person.” In her listing she notes: “It is with pleasure I invite and welcome every single member of the world community who shares the desire to own, restore and preserve a craftsman style 1909 cottage.” Clearly, 7569 Herschel is a very special place, imbued with the spirit of a special person. She kept many sayings posted through the house, among them this by Theocritus, 300 BC: “Oh to be a frog, my lady and live aloof from care.” Phyllis is now aloof. But her house and garden needs care.

Motorists must heed school bus stop arm laws Students urged to avoid ‘distracted walking’ caused by hoodies and headphone impairment With another school year underway, First Student, Inc. reminds motorists that passing a school bus while it is loading and unloading children is illegal in all 50 states. And for good reason, the potential for serious injury caused by motorists passing a stopped school bus with its red lights flashing and stop-arm extended is extremely high. School buses are the safest way to get to and from school; nearly 12 times safer than passenger vehicles according the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. First Student, the largest provider of student transportation in North America, says that buses today are safer than ever and have numerous safety features and equipment to protect students. Additionally, there are steps motorists and students can take to make boarding or disembarking the bus even safer. The greatest danger riders face is getting on or off the bus. According to the School Bus Information Clearing House, a service of the National Association for Pupil Transportation (NAPT), dozens of children are seriously injured each year in school busrelated pedestrian accidents. Making motorists aware of the laws and the risks when passing a stopped school bus will go a long way in helping to prevent these accidents. Avoiding dis-

tracted driving, especially during the morning and afternoon hours when buses are on the road, will too. “The safety and security of the students we carry is our core value. Our nation’s school children are put at risk each time a motorist on the road decides to save a few seconds and illegally pass a stopped school bus,” said Linda Burtwistle, president of First Student. “It is unconscionable that tens of thousands of motorists illegally pass school buses every day.” In New York alone, it’s estimated that school buses stopped to load and unload children are passed illegally 50,000 times everyday statewide. “Passing a stopped school bus that has its red lights flashing and stop arm extended while boarding or unloading is one of the leading violations involving motorists and school buses,” said Chuck Canterbury, national president of the Fraternal Order of Police, the nation’s largest organization of sworn law enforcement officers with more than 327,000 members. Cities and states across the nation, from New York to California, are taking steps to push for tougher laws and more stringent enforcement of stop arm violations. “Law enforcement agencies around

‘Distracted walking’ Students can also take steps to improve safety when getting on and off the bus. Paying attention, listening and looking both ways before stepping on or off the bus or crossing the street is simple but important advice. “Another problem we see emerging is ‘distracted walking,’ often caused by hoodies and headphones,” Burtwistle said. “These two popular items can impair students’ key senses when sweatshirt hoods block their full vision and loud music in earphones drown out other sounds. Students also are becoming increasingly distracted by texting and using other portable electronic devices.” — First Student provides school districts industry leading expertise and implements best practices in safety so that educators can focus on education.

Bishop’s and La Jolla gear up BY LEE CORNELL | VILLAGE NEWS La Jolla High School and The Bishop’s School will meet Sept. 15 in a girls’ volleyball showdown at La Jolla High. While one team is looking to find its identity, the other is hoping its success in recent years will propel it to the next level. Bishop’s posted an impressive 309 record in 2009, a number that could have been significantly better if it didn’t have to face eventual state champions La Jolla Country Day four times. “We have a talented group coming back,” head coach Tod Mattox said. “We’re led by two senior outside hitters (Kristen Casey and Maddie Lord) who are two of the better outside hitters in the county.” The Knights lost their fair share of talent in the off season but Mattox likes the team he has coming back. Senior setter Courtney Hoffman is stepping into an important starting role while A.J. Kiyoizumi is vying for first team status at libero. “Those four seniors are probably about as good a group as we’ve had leadership-wise,” Mattox said. Mattox also said sophomore Claire Manhard is a good player in the making and junior Sydney Seau provides heart and hustle to the team despite being undersized. Bishop’s made an admirable run to the Division IV state semifinals last season before running into the LJCD juggernaut. With a fresh slate to work on, a couple more wins and a state championship in its own right is

SPORTS La Jolla hosts 80th annual Rough Water Swim BY JOHNNY MCDONALD | VILLAGE NEWS

Bishop’s at La Jolla Sept. 15, 4:30 p.m. certainly not out of the question. “I think we have a chance to be better this year, given the way this group works,” Mattox said. Just the second match in a long season for both teams, the crosstown rivalry should also serve as an indicator of things to come. La Jolla High posted a 22-13 overall record and an 8-2 league mark in 2009. The Vikings beat Southwest and Brawley in the CIF playoffs before bowing out to Valley Center. This year’s team has undergone a major makeover. Several top players graduated in the spring and the Vikings will also have to deal with a leadership change. Tina Kinkead takes over as interim head coach, replacing David Jones, who is taking the season off to focus on finishing up his master’s degree. La Jolla is led by seniors Catherine Galligan, Avalon Richards, Allison Helm and junior Kailey Fudge. Returning starters include junior setter Ryan Farley and sophomore Waverly Richards. “My goal is to establish a strong foundation of discipline,” Kinkead said. “I think we have a great amount of chemistry. The girls are really hard workers and have good ball control and a relentless attitude toward volleyball.” Bishop’s has beaten LJHS the past two seasons and Mattox hopes that number will grow on Sept. 15.

Veteran swimmers affectionately call it “the Big Wet One.” The rest know it as the La Jolla Rough Water Swim, the nation’s premier standardbearer which is scheduled Sept. 12 for its 80th official start at La Jolla Cove. The major water tests range from a one-mile triangular course to threemile Gatorman to-and-from Scripps Pier. A 250-yard junior course accommodates the rest. The triangular mile offers arena-like viewing for the spectators and there’s no charge. Although it began in 1916 as a promotional event for the Panama Exposition in Balboa Park, the swim became an annual event until 1931. Seven men took the dip back in 1916. This year, entries should exceed 2,000; a record 2,392 battled the currents last year. There have been three interruptions in the annual classic. It was halted in 1935 because of attention given the second exposition in the park, in 1948 because of polio concerns, and in 1959 because of media warnings of sharks in the area. Swim organizers heard about shark warnings again in August, but the event will go on. Although all the races are popular and well-attended, the Gatorman event is usually the most intriguing. It’s significantly longer and more challenging than the course for masters and amateur swimmers. The Gatorman is by far the most technical. Tides, currents and navigation play major roles in success. Rough conditions, resulting in a num-

ROUGH WATER SWIM Sunday, Sept. 12 9 a.m. Junior Swim (boys and girls 12 and under) 11 a.m. Women Masters Classic (19 and older) 12 p.m. Men Masters Classic (19 and older) 1:30 p.m. Gatorman Championship (men and women 13 and over) 1:35 p.m. Amateur Swim (Boys and girls 13 to 18 years old) ber of rescues, hindered last year’s event. Listening to last year’s finishers, the conditions of calm surf to intense waves added at least seven minutes to their efforts. The swells made sighting difficult and the chop filled the mouths of swimmers with salt water. On the Gatorman turnaround point, competition threads out and there is less crush from other swimmers. At the two-mile mark the throat could be raw

from water intake and there becomes concern about being slammed against a wall or stairway. Some of the locals said last year’s event was one of the toughest in years. Among past participants, La Jolla’s Courtney Lischke is remembered for her eight victories. In 1994, she was the junior national champion in the 1,650-yard freestyle. Deni Cullom of Dana Point won last year’s men’s Gatorman with a time of 1:00:03, beating Alex Kostich of Los Angeles by eight seconds. Local Todd Robinson, who previously set a Catalina Channel Crossing men’s record and won the Maui Channel Swim, finished third in 1:01:25. The women’s Gatorman title went to Dawn Heckman of Pasadena in 1:02:58. Lynette Lim of Rancho Mirage and Jaqueline Corcoran of Los Angeles finished second and third. La Jollans Corrie Falcon and Ben Weston captured the masters events over a 1mile course. For more information about the swim, visit

SENIOR LIVING Civility — a word no longer used Doing it Better Natasha Josefowitz, Ph.D. So much anger in Washington, such acrimony and hatred out of control! What is happening to normally rational people to push them over the edge and make them act out? We read about fanatics and zealots in Africa and in the Middle East who are extreme in their views, bent on killing, whose passions for a cause or a territory or a religion send them into a frenzy of irrational behaviors. As a child, I remember feeling murderous against Hitler, but I have not had the wish to kill since then. Perhaps, if my home were threatened, or my family, I would defend them to the best of my ability, but I would always opt first for a peaceful meeting to discuss differences. I believe in civility — a word which, like the civil behavior it describes, has fallen into disuse. The lack of civility in America today is one of the factors of the breakdown of family life, unethical practices in business and dishonesty in politics. Civility is civilization at its best. It is control over one’s negative impulses, delay over the desire for instant gratification. It is the antithesis of “letting it all hang out.” It is the quest for calm, for rationality as opposed to shouting incendiary remarks. Civility is the opposite of unbridled


One of my hands is being held by someone who agrees with me and I smile and feel comfortable My other hand is being held by someone who disagrees with me and I sigh and feel challenged because I have an opportunity to see the world through a different lens I am given the chance [to learn] passions, the opposite of rhetoric or lies. It is more than mere politeness, it is the knowledge that personal wellbeing and the pursuit of personal goals cannot be separated from the well-being and goals of others, whether members of our family, our friends, our organizations or our country. Civility requires listening to others with an open mind and responding with an open heart. It requires knowing ourselves: our tendency to manipulate others, to serve our own interests first. Civility is learned at home by

example. Children observe their parents in interaction with themselves and others, and they imitate. We are not born civil. We are born to grab from others, to hit the child whose toy we want, to have tantrums when we are denied a wish. Parents are the first teachers of civility, then schools continue when they do a “time out” for unruly behavior in the classroom or the playground and never allow bullying. Civility should continue in the place of work where people are respected whether the relationships are among peers or up and down the hierarchy. Next time you feel anger and wish to strike out either physically, verbally or emotionally, ask yourself whether you can predict the outcome of the lashing out as something positive. In other words, will that other person see the light, be convinced and change the behavior to suit you? Perhaps all you want to achieve is to make the other person feel bad, guilty, hurt, punished. Will vengefulness make you feel better in the long run, or will a postponement of your reaction to a calmer time when discussion can ensue be a wiser choice? Civility is a sign of true maturity, so let us resolve to remain civil no matter what the circumstances, to be aware of what triggers us to spin out of control and help others do the same by projecting calm, attentiveness and thoughtfulness, understanding others’ points of view even when disagreeing with them. Allowing them to think differently from us is the road to world peace.

CONTINUED FROM Page 1 ting asked to cover bigger stories and fill in on the morning anchor desk.” When she started at KGTV in 1981, LeBeau was required to wear the standard-issue men’s polyester jackets to match the other anchors — who were, not surprisingly, male. “They didn’t always trust me with the big stories because I was new and I was a woman,” she said. “But many of the men who were toughest on me ultimately became my biggest cheerleaders. Those guys taught me the business and for that, I am grateful.” Although LeBeau admits there is “a nugget of truth” to newsroom sexism à la the movie “Anchorman,” she brushes off her initial encounters with gender disparity in the workplace. “I wouldn’t waste a lot of time talking about women in this field,” she said. “Today, the media is mostly comprised of women. And I would give them the same advice I would give a man: be professional and prepared, be willing to learn and never take criticism personally. Check the gender card at the door.” Though it took two decades, LeBeau achieved equal pay and parity with her male colleagues. “In this post-feminist era, we can’t forget everything that has been accomplished,” LeBeau said. “There are still some gender issues in other fields, but not in broadcast journalism.” Throughout her career, LeBeau encountered obstacles in her personal life that challenged her more than professional hurdles. When she was 26, her mother committed suicide after battling depression for most of her adult life. LeBeau turned to spirituality for understanding. “Everybody in life has a few roadblocks along the way,” she said. “My spiritual journey began when I lost my mother. I made a commitment to the Christian faith, and that really became my foundation for dealing with life.” In the late 1980s, LeBeau began to show symptoms of depression as well. “Fortunately by that time, there were treatments available,” she said. “In my mother’s generation, it wasn’t talked about.” LeBeau’s personal experiences with mental illness gave her fresh inspiration for shedding light on healthrelated issues. “News is so often murder and mayhem,” she said. “It was wonderful to feel like I was bringing people information that could improve or even save their lives. I felt like I was helping to make people be aware and able to ask the right questions.” Despite having officially retired from broadcasting, LeBeau remains active as a spokeswoman and advocate for Palomar Pomerado Health. She also continues to work as a freelance health reporter and a motivational speaker for women and faithbased groups. In her scarce free time, LeBeau competes in rough-water swims throughout the western United States and often swims at La Jolla Cove. “It’s absolutely the most wonderful swimming spot in the world,” she said. LeBeau lives in Coronado with her husband, Tom Hamilton, a retired Navy pilot, and their cat, Little Girl. Tickets to the dessert are $10 and can be reserved by calling (858) 729-5524.

‘Very serious about having a good time’ BY CHARLENE BALDRIDGE | VILLAGE NEWS Toy piano impresario Scott Paulson said he doesn’t want readers to miss the 10th annual Toy Piano Festival at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) Geisel Library. But he warns that unless you get there early, you may be seated at the same level as the performers — on the floor. “We are very serious about having a good time at these events,” Paulson said, adding that’s why performers return year after year. “It’s partly a ‘happening’ and partly a traditional musical fellowship gathering.” One is instantaneously enchanted by the Geisel collection of toy pianos, which range from gaily-painted, small, toy store uprights to a very sophisticated, ebony baby, baby, baby grand. During a recent festival, this writer was convulsed by the appearance of a dignified performer in full concert regalia, who ceremoniously flipped up his tails and sank into a lotus position to address said baby, baby, baby grand. The pieces are serious, too, according to Paulson, also known as artistic director of the Teeny Tiny Pit Orchestra and the Foley artist who appears in Cygnet Theatre’s annual Christmas show. The works range from traditional lullabies to “performance art” works. This year, because it is an anniversary, he expects to include John Cage’s “Suite for Toy Piano,” considered the first “serious” work for toy piano. Paulson has also programmed “Variations on a Tumbao,” written by Mexico City composer Luis Obregon, and an arrange-

ment of “Huapango,” from the late Mexican composer Carlos Chavez. Japanese composer Ryoko Amadee Goguen performs a new sonata for toy piano; Sue Palmer, a new boogie-woogie; and a work from Chilean composer Nicolas Ignacio Carvajal will also be heard, as well as a new blues piece by Gail Gipson. Paulson, himself, will perfor m a n e w wo r k a s we l l , and, in late breaking news, he revealed that Wendy Clemente has just signed on for the Sunday show. Other wellknown local musicians participating this year are music critic Christian Hertzog, Miriam Manning and Kenneth Herman — he of the elegant tails. The Toy Piano Collection at the Geisel Library consists of actual

instruments, recordings, extant literature (who knew?) and commissioned scores. “In 2001, because of our activities and at our request, the Library of Congress issued a special call number and subject heading for toy piano scores,” Paulson said. In case one has a need to know, the number is M 175 T69. There are two chances this year for those who want to have some serious fun hearing serious music seriously played on what — at one’s peril — could be termed wacky instruments (toy pianos are notoriously impossible to tune). Join other rabid aficionados on the lower level, west wing of the Geisel Library at 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 12 or noon Monday, Sept. 13. It’s free.

I’m not finished talking about jellies. Those in the know already read my recent column (“When jellies collide and barnacles hitch a ride,” Aug. 12). Now I’m following up with another web-of-life connection, this time linking jellies with fish. Jellies are highly effective survivalists, what with a mostly transparent appearance to foil near- and farsighted predators, and stinging cells that do double duty by capturing a meal and thwarting many an overambitious predator. It’s no surprise then that other marine life species seek shelter under a jelly’s cushy umbrella. For example, during the juvenile phase, medusafish search out jellies to commence a symbiotic relationship. Though not known for sure, the fish may be oblivious to a jelly’s prickly parts by excreting an extra layer of mucus, which would suppress the jelly’s stinging missiles. In this cohabitation, the guest may benefit more than the host because medusafish not only reap protection but make a meal off the jelly’s leftovers or even munch on the jelly itself. Talk about biting the hand that feeds you. As for the jelly’s welfare, medusafish remove parasites and attract careless prey. This summer, there has been no shortage of jelly sightings. Just the

other day, I discovered a young medusafish (Icichthys lockingtoni) buried in an egg-yolk jelly (Phacellophora camtschatica) floating off La Jolla Shores. The blunt snout, fanlike fins, beady eyes and pasty coloring resembled no local yokel found in these parts. Dwarfed by prominent fins positioned atop and underneath the body are two small pectoral fins attached below the gills. These little fins look like an afterthought, but they aren’t. Juvenile medusafish have no swim bladder and very low body fat content, so medusafish have slightly negative buoyancy. The pectoral fins act to supply lift and thrust. One fin flaps in a semi-rotary manner, then SEE TIDELINES, Page 15

Jelly accommodations are not for the easily seasick. Medusafish comfortably swim, hover, and eat while oriented in all manner of positions, a requirement for living within a shelter that makes use of all three dimensions. © 2010 JUDITH LEA GARFIELD

Haute couture and inspired creations




Starry, starry nights

with Vincent Andrunas The Old Globe Theatre celebrated its 75th anniversary this year, while the Globe Guilders — the theater's support auxiliary — celebrated the 55th anniversary of its volunteer activities. The Guilders recently held their 20th annual luncheon and fashion show to raise funds to help support the Globe’s artistic and education programs. Titled “Celebrating Twenty Years of Couture,” the event featured famed designer Naeem Khan and his fall 2010 couture line. Like the fashions, the venue was quite new. For many of the guests, it was their first visit to the Hilton San Diego Bayfront. After a champagne reception and silent auction in the spacious west foyer, guests moved to the impressive Sapphire Ballroom for a live auction, followed by the luncheon and runway show. The tables were already set with large, square plates holding three smaller dishes: a square one with a crisp Caesar salad, another bearing grilled balsamic vegetables and a round one with lemon ricotta cheesecake. All were beautifully prepared and presented, and quite delicious — but was something missing? Just when some guests began to assume the meal was strictly vegetarian, the

entrees arrived, again on square plates, featuring tasty scallops, short ribs and pesto mashed potatoes. Very satisfying! The crowd, numbering perhaps 600 or so, seemed to thoroughly enjoy the fashion show, wherein a wide range of attractive styles was artfully presented in barely a half hour. A large staff of professional models displayed the many outfits, coiffed in hairstyles that were “unusual” but which did nothing to distract the audience from the beauty of Khan’s creations. The audience reactions suggested that they’d have eagerly stayed to see even more of his designs. ••• Another sort of fashion display was presented at Balboa Park’s Timken Museum a few days later, when the museum teamed up with Fashion Careers College and 15 young designers for the third annual “Art of Fashion” event. Each designer, inspired by an artwork chosen from the Timken’s stunning collection, produced a strikingly original costume showing how a clothing designer can express in textiles some of the artistry that a master painter had once applied to canvas. Their imaginative designs spanned an exceptionally wide range of styles and colors. Jeanne Jones and Cathryn Ramirez had co-chaired the “Art of Fashion Preview: A Spectacular Evening with Tiffany Glamour” on Friday evening, when about 80 patrons gathered amid the Timken’s masterworks for cocktails, an advance look at the newly created designs and an elegant seated dinner. Saturday’s main event, which

attracted about 300 guests, began with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. The models posed on cubes beside their designers, with the inspiring paintings prominent in the background. A silent auction also garnered attention, and those who purchased premium tickets had access to the VIP area outside by the lily pond, complete with its own bar and DJ. That’s where the after party took place at the end of the evening, when the designers and models let their hair down (figuratively, anyway…) and mingled with the VIP guests.

Evacuation a Special Challenge for Frail Elderly When disaster looms – such as a nearby fire – we may be asked to evacuate to a safe place until the danger passes. For most this is a huge inconvenience and a cause of much stress. But the frail elderly face a much larger challenge. They may be unable to organize to leave, may have nowhere to go, may be unable to collect pets and important papers, may be paralyzed by fear. Help your elder prepare a Disaster Bag in advance. Collect vital materials and check regularly to assure it is complete and available. Remember, the elder must be able to physically grab the bag and go, so it must not be too heavy. Do not keep the bag in a very warm place such as a car as medication deteriorates in heat. A supply of required medication for 1 week should be adequate, but also include a list of medications with the prescription numbers and the name of the pharmacy so they can be refilled. Also include a spare pair of eye glasses and any assistive devices. A copy of their ID, insurance papers, and Medicare card should be included. Put a list of important emergency contacts and include clothing for a week.

Hygiene items can be included, but not large bottles of liquid. Preparation is the key. The better prepared the less anxiety, the best opportunity for a good outcome. The nurses and caregivers at Innovative Healthcare Consultants will be glad to assist. See our website at or call us at (877) 731-1442.

The Full Monty... "Girls Night Out" at the Welk Resort Theatre “Seeing how much their wives enjoy watching male strippers during their "Girls' Night Out," unemployed steelworkers in Buffalo, New York come up with a bold way to make some quick cash. In the process they find renewed self-esteem, the importance of friendship and the ability to have fun. As the guys work through their fears, self-consciousness, feelings of worthlessness and anxieties (over everything from being overweight to child custody, bigotry to being gay), they come to discover that not only are they stronger as a group, but that the strength they find in each other gives them the individual courage to face their demons and overcome them. There is great heart to THE FULL MONTY, and the ultimate themes expressed in the show, about taking charge of one's life and following one's dreams are great lessons for all of us. And truth be told, through creative directing and staging, the final impact of "The Full Monty" can be achieved without ever losing your jockey shorts! The Welk Theatre rates this one a strong PG-17 (even with some cleaned up language) and very brief nudity – The Welk does not recommend this show for children under 17 years old. Director Nick DeGruccio and Choreographer Ray Limon team up for the first time and it promises to be spectacular! The Welk hopes to attract some new audience with this musical, and wants not to offend those who are more traditional musical theatre fans. Monty runs Sept 9 – October 17 with 1pm matinee performances on Wed/Thurs/Sat/Sun and evening shows Thurs/Sat.

So You Think You Know Pilates I know what you‘re thinking, ‘Oh no, not another article about Pilates.’ I’ve read so many myself I think I could recite them from memory. They all say the same things and hitting the key points; dancer’s body, long, lean, toned, blah blah blah. Well, this isn’t one of those. So before you roll your eyes into the back of your head and drift into Assumption Land, take another sip of coffee and read on. I’ve always been into fitness and exercise in one form or another, but I’m not one of those super-women who runs a thousand miles a week and has .008% body fat. I just like to stay toned enough to fit into my skinny jeans once in a while without having to call the fire department to get me back out. In pursuit of this seemingly unattainable goal I’ve tried just about everything from weighted Hula-Hoops to kick-boxing. Lucky for me La Jolla never has a shortage of new torture methods. Some things worked okay, but I hated them, some things I liked, but they didn’t make me look any better. I guess you could say I was a little jaded. So when a friend invited me to join her for a Pilates session I was less than enthusiastic. I had tried Pilates in the past, at two different studios. There wasn’t much difference between them. The instructors seemed a little pretentious and had unpronounceable names. They breathed loudly like a pug in a wind-tunnel and encouraged me to do the same and they snapped their fingers incessantly. There was a lot of talk about my core somewhere in the vicinity of my belly button and how I was supposed to fit my brain in there. Although parts of the workouts were tough many of them didn’t seem to make much sense. When I asked for an explanation their answers didn’t make much sense either. I wasn‘t impressed, I tried it twice and didn‘t like it. Done, or so it thought. Reluctantly I met her at Pilates United for what I thought would be more weirdness and heavy breathing. We were met at the door by a bald, Jason Statham type man in his forties wearing jeans and cowboy boots. Was this the maintenance guy? No. His name was Jake Holmes, a founding partner and our instructor and he actually did have a dancer’s body. He quickly introduced us to Moji Austell, his partner and former spouse and to some of the other instructors who seemed friendly. All of them had amazing bodies. It reminds me of that old adage about never trusting a skinny chef, the opposite is true about a fitness instructor. The studio itself was bathed in natural light. Herbal tea steeped in the corner and familiar music played in the background. The equipment was functional but well worn and

obviously loved, like my husband’s old baseball mitt. “So, what are you looking for in an exercise program?“ Jake asked. We gave him some line about wanting greater flexibility and a stronger core to which he simply responded, “Really?” After an uncomfortable moment I blurted out something about lifting my butt and flattening my tummy. He smiled and said, “Good. Flexibility, alignment and balance are all important and will come in time but the truth is most people really just want to look better so let’s start with that”. He had us lay down on our reformers (the standard Pilates equipment that looks like a giant mouse trap) after a quick briefing on some basic principles which, I might add, actually did made sense to me, we got right to work. A few of the exercises were the same as the ones I had done before but the majority were things I had never done, never seen or even heard of and might even be illegal in states like Utah. We found ourselves laughing and joking around through the burning and sweat. Where was all the heavy concentration and the deep focus? What about the breathing? “First of all,” Jake explained, now a bit serious, “I’ve never seen anyone breath themselves skinny. Second, all that focus and concentration might make an impression but it doesn‘t keep you coming back, at least not for long.” Jake continued as this is obviously something he and his staff are passionate about, “We want you to enjoy your time with us. You can have fun and work hard at the same time, when you do you’ll be more consistent and consistency is the key to getting the results you want.” Before we knew it the session was over. My butt, legs and abs were fatigued but I felt relaxed, happy and more energetic than before I started. There was no hard sell or pressure to buy a package right then and there. Jake simply told us that if it was the right thing for us we’d know it. Before we left we had a cup of tea and chatted with a few of the other clients. One woman about my age had been coming to Pilates United for over sixteen years and another in her 70’s had been coming for ten and a 20-something lawyer for two. I have to say they looked great. They weren’t fitness freaks, just women who found something they liked, a place they loved and a method that worked. If you’re anything like me, if you’ve tried everything else and especially if you’ve tried Pilates and weren’t impressed, I recommend that you give them a try. If you don’t like it that’s fine, it was a few dollars and an hour of your life but it you do then you’ve found something invaluable.




La Jolla Piano Institute opens new location in the Village BY MARIKO LAMB | VILLAGE NEWS La Jolla Piano Institute founder Marden Abadi has been teaching his unique music philosophy in Southern California for more than 30 years. The pianist who once stunned crowds by performing in spectacular historic vistas, including the rim of the Grand Canyon and South Dakota’s Mount Rushmore, has relocated his piano institute from its former 10-year location in Mount Soledad to the heart of La Jolla Village. The La Jolla Piano Institute is now open for enrollment for aspiring musicians of all ages and experience levels. Piano, violin, guitar, voice and music theory lessons are taught in a personalized format, based on classical or contemporary compositions of the student’s choice. In turn, students are rewarded with benefits such as higher concentration, memory and,


the other pectoral fin takes over. Alternating fin flapping makes for efficient braking and turning in a small space. And the paired pectorals allow medusafish to swim, hover and otherwise maneuver at various attitudes, even upside down. Not many fish species feed in any orientation but it makes sense for medusafish, particularly when snacking on the host. Here, medusafish use their mouth to grasp some jelly tissue, then roll and twist

of course, an appreciation for music. The institute’s unique philosophy is based on Abadi’s experience studying in Japan under world-renowned pianist Shinichi Suzuki. Abadi has taken Suzuki’s innovative method of music education and adapted it to fit the style of his American students. “The Suzuki philosophy involves working with music that is not arranged and that is not simplified. The original music is taken apart and put back together as a puzzle,” Abadi said. “The actual piano technique is done by understanding the concept of what you’re doing aurally, and that is transferred to the fingers as technical training,” he said, adding that the methodology works the same for every instrument. Teachers at La Jolla Piano Institute offer a variety of pieces for students to choose from, thanks to the tremendous undertaking of Abadi and his

staff to acquire original film scores and other pieces that are not within the public domain. “La Jolla Piano Institute is unique in that instead of only classical music, we have the copyrights for popular contemporary music that students want to play,” Abadi said, adding that most students practice a mix of classical and technical training. Personalized lessons are conducted based on Abadi’s belief that if students choose their own curriculum with guidance in their technical training, they will want to practice and learn to love music. La Jolla Piano Institute is located at 7848 Ivanhoe Ave. The institute is open Mondays through Fridays from noon to 10 p.m. Enrollment is open to all ages and experience levels. Call (858) 456-1980 to arrange for personalized lessons or learn more about the institute.

their body to tear off the chunk. When young medusafish grow to about 7 inches long, they vacate the boarding house and head to deeper water, all the while continuing to grow, which can be to about 18 inches long. Researchers in submersibles diving to depths of up to about 3,000 feet have videotaped adult medusafish swimming in a slow, snakelike motion, which contrasts with a juvenile’s movement. In another departure from juveniles, adults may increase body fat percentage and decrease muscle and bone mass to achieve neutral buoyancy. Now that they are neither

negatively buoyant nor confined by the boundaries and whims of a jelly, La Jolla Piano Institute founder Marden Abadi has taken Shinichi Suzuki’s innovative adult pectoral fins are superfluous. method of music education and adapted it to fit the style of his American students.

Ask The Lawyer Question:


How often should my attorney review my trust?

The most important time to make estate planning changes are when major life events happen, which includes: births of children or grandchildren, deaths of someone named in your documents, marriages, change of names, receiving an inheritance and the addition of more assets.


Even sophisticated clients forget to change their wills when they remarry. This would result in everyone being unhappy because a judge would have to be involved. Some clients inherit money or property and forget to add it to their trust, resulting in a probate. The other day I added 2 new children that were born to some clients several years before. If you want to leave money to new grandchildren, nieces or nephews, you must include them in the list unless you have given a gift to "all the grandchildren alive at the time of your death." The most common person that changes in your will is the guardian of minor children. This is the person that will be responsible for raising your child. The person you named as a God parent 10 years ago may not be the right person now. Please review your documents at least every 2 years yourself. I know you do not like to read them, but you can look at the people you have named very easily to determine if those need to be changed. Happy reading!

Photo gallery holds ‘End of Summer’ show BY WILL BOWEN | VILLAGE NEWS Joseph Bellows is currently showing what he calls an “End of the Summer” exhibit. It mainly focuses on a set of photographs by Charles Grogg called “Reconstructions,” and a few prints by Dana Montlack, but there is also work by other photographers, including one called “Oceano Dunes” by Ansel Adams. This show highlights some of the transformations a photographer can make by working with the development process chiefly, the paper and the chemical solutions. Charles Grogg takes pictures of plants outside of their natural context. He blows them up and prints them on fine Japanese handmade paper in nine sections, then sews them together with cotton string. He then mounts them on more of the luxurious Japanese gampi paper. The result is like a hand-crafted product, which emphasizes the architectural beauty of the plant. Grogg develops his prints in a platinum/palladium solution rather than the standard silver solution, which gives them more of a subtle appearance, showcasing the plant’s “delicacy, grace and inherent sensual details.” Regarding the stitching of the sections of the photograph together, Boggs cryptically says “it has to do with growth and restriction,” and he “hopes to point to some private internal conflicts that look nevertheless like common experience; which is the only reason for making pictures in the first place.” Montlack works with color. She takes photographs of tiny, sometimes microscopic, objects then blows them up and puts them together in unusual ways. One of her photographs juxtaposed some tiny seeds with a shark egg. She also has a print of jellyfish and another of bubbles next to some spiny creatures. Montlack says she tries to interpret the mysteries of nature and show the interconnectedness of all things in her work. Other artists in the show include Han Nguyen, Laura Letinsky, John Priola, Chip Hooper, Laure AlbinGuillot, Rocky Schenk, Joni Sternbach, Beth Dow, Edward Weston, Ansel Adams, Carol Panaro-Smith, James Hajicek, Alvin Booth, and Susan Seubert. Some of the finer photographs of these other artists include: a signed Ansel Adams study of light and shadow on the beach dunes of Oceano, two plant photographs, actually

made by exposing real plants on p h o t og rap h i c p ap e r by C a r o l Panaro–Smith and James Hajicek, and a wonderful ghostly, misty nude woman by Alvin Booth. Bellows says the way to learn to look at a photograph is to “Just look. Come back and look again. Read a little. Compare. It’s is very different to see an original photograph versus a reprint in a magazine or a book.”

Joseph Bellows: serious photography BY WILL BOWEN | VILLAGE NEWS Joseph Bellows — tall, slender with close-cropped hair, glasses, blue jeans and a long-sleeved pink shirt open at the collar — looks something like the actor John Malkovich, as he sits behind his 300-year-old wooden Spanish writing desk. On the floor, to the right, on a patchwork leather rug is an old rusted cannonball. There are other odd, unique and interesting furnishings in Bellows’ back office. And there are books, lots and lots of books about photography on his shelves. It is, perhaps, the finest library on photography anywhere.

craftsmen and artists. Bellows spends most of his time in the back office on the phone or the computer. He does not cater to the typical La Jolla tourist scene or the flow of street traffic. He works mostly with serious or prestigious collectors — like museums.

Bellows was born in Rochester, N.Y. His parents were in the art business, so he learned the trade at an early age. In 1981, he came out to La Jolla where he worked as a gallery assistant. In 1983, with Arthur Olman, he helped found the Museum of Photographic Arts (MOPA) in Balboa Park.
