BY MARIKO LAMB | VILLAGE NEWS a Valencia Hotel is certainly blessed with its oceanfront location overlooking La Jolla Cove. The hotel takes advantage of its sweeping coastal vistas with dining establishments, like the award-winning Sky Room and Whaling Bar & Grill restaurants, the Mediterranean Room’s casual dining patio and its outdoor conference, catering and wedding facilities. One downfall to its location, however, is the presence of some unwanted seaside visitors that are out to swoop up free meals


from patrons at the hotel’s outdoor restaurants: seagulls. Justin Wilson, the hotel’s director of food and beverage services, said the birds have pestered guests at the hotel’s restaurants on several occasions. In one instance, a guest was dining alone and was served one of the restaurants’ large pork chop entrees. “The gentleman was thrilled when he was presented with the dish and took the time to tuck his napkin into the neck of his shirt and prepare to enjoy his entrée. Just as his fork and knife were in his hand, a seag-

ull plopped down onto his table and snatched away his pork chop,” he said. “It was a sizeable chop too. We were surprised the seagull was able to carry it.” The gentleman opted to dine in his room where another pork chop was rushed up, free of lurking poachers. “We had another instance where a guest was given her breakfast and screamed quite loudly when a seagull’s wing hit her face as the seagull dive-bombed into her chef ’s omelet,” he said. “She was quite startled.” Wilson said the hotel has attempted to get rid of the birds using various methods, including installing a bird wire atop the roof, but the birds “figured it out.” After some brainstorming, management figured out a unique solution to rid the persistent thieves without the use of chemicals, noisemakers or violent methods. The management enlisted the help of falconer Larry Cosgrove from Airstrike Bird Control, who comes to the hotel three days each week and uses predatory birds to scare off seagulls. The birds — Peepers the owl and Pearl the hawk — are highly trained not to attack guests, steal food or harm any nearby SEE BIRDS, Page 5

community legacy BY MARIKO LAMB | VILLAGE NEWS Despite three attempted motions by Historical Resources Board (HRB) members to designate a property at 1328 Virginia Way as historic, none of the motions passed. Two of the motions resulted in a 4-3 vote and another resulted in a 5-2 vote. Although all of the motions resulted in majority votes in favor of designation, HRB rules require an affirmative vote by at least six board members for a historical designation to be granted. The property, dubbed the Windemere Cottage by generations of La Jollans, is a two-story single-family beach cottage-style bungalow built in 1895 by the firm of Falkenham and Gill. In 1927, the cottage was relocated from its original location on 844 Prospect St. to its current location on Virginia Way. The HRB staff and the applicants’ representative Scott Moomjian recommended that the HRB not designate the property as a historical site due to a lack of historical value. “Over the years, the property was substantially modified and altered to the extent that the property does not posses any of its original integrity,” he said, emphasizing that the cottage’s relocation further tainted much of its integrity. “In our calculations, approximately 92 percent of the building’s exterior has been modified.” John Bolthouse, executive director of La Jolla Historical Society, spoke on behalf of all 21 board members from the society who voted unanimously to support the designation of the La Jolla cottage. “There’s something to be said about saving structures like this that have character,” he said. “This one certainly is quirky and has been changed over time, but we believe very strongly that it has not been changed significantly that would argue against its designation.” SEE COTTAGE, Page 4

La Jolla man released from Jones’ ex-housekeeper, woman’s boyfriend plead guilty to burglary jail in face-slashing case BY NEAL PUTNAM | VILLAGE NEWS

BY NEAL PUTNAM | VILLAGE NEWS A La Jolla man who was convicted of slashing the face of a former friend was released from jail Sept. 20 after being sentenced to 365 days. He had already served that time. Amier Rocky Issa, 34, who for 10 years worked as a computer technician at UCSD, will live with a relative in Los Angeles on terms of three years probation that was granted by San Diego Superior Court Judge Joseph Brannigan. The judge rejected imposing a prison term that was recommended by the probation department. Issa was ordered to complete a 52week class for domestic-violence batterers and must avoid all contact with the victim, Michael Serrato, 29, and the restaurants where Serrato works as a waiter. Serrato suffered a 5-inch cut on his face on July 11, 2008, when Issa, who was reportedly stalking Serrato after their relationship ended, confronted Serrato on the street. Serrato received 28 stitches both inside his mouth and outside his face. Serrato said he was satisfied with the sentence. He sent the judge a letter asking that Issa receive mental health treatment and not a prison term. “We want Mr. Issa to have very careful monitoring … to place Mr. Issa on a very, very short leash,” said Deputy District Attorney Michelle Ialeggio, who recommended probation. Issa was ordered to take medication and Brannigan said Issa’s custody cred-


its total 646 days, including two stays at a state mental hospital after he was declared mentally incompetent to stand trial and to be sentenced. Issa returned to San Diego in August after psychiatrists found he was mentally competent to be sentenced. With the credit for time served, Ialeggio said the 646 days would have been subtracted from a prison term and Issa would end up released from prison without any program to help him. “Admittedly, we are taking a chance,” said Brannigan, who told Issa he would go to prison if he refused medication or violated probation terms. “I wish you good luck and hopefully no more problems.” Issa was convicted of assault with a deadly weapon in October, 2010 and could have faced seven years in prison. He jumped bail and was a no-show for the verdict, but he was arrested at the MGM Hotel in Las Vegas eight days later and returned to San Diego.

Just a week after four men landed prison sentences La Jolla cookbook author Jeanne Jones were sentenced to prison, one of her former housekeepers pleaded guilty to residential burglary involving her theft of jewelry she took and gave to her boyfriend to sell. Carla Rosela Carrillo, 44, also pleaded guilty on Sept. 23 to commercial burglary involving stealing clothing from a Gap store while she was out on bail for stealing jewelry from Jones, said Deputy District Attorney C.J. Mody. Sentencing was set for Nov. 17, and Carrillo faces a maximum term of four years and eight months in state prison. She pleaded guilty before San Diego Superior Court Judge Charles Gill, who dismissed other charges that included grand theft and receiving stolen property. Carrillo’s boyfriend, Lamont Long, 29, pleaded guilty to receiving stolen property. Mody said it was Long who pawned the stolen rings to a jewelry store but he never was at Jones’ residence. Long is expected to get probation when he is sentenced on Dec. 16. He has no prior record, Mody said. Court records show Carrillo was convicted of burglary in 1999 and attempted theft in 1995. Carrillo is being housed at the Las Colinas Women’s Detention Facility on $60,000 bail. She had been free on bond until she was arrested for the Gap theft in March. Long remains free on bond.

Jones testified at the Dec. 9 preliminary hearing when both were ordered to stand trial. According to court records, Jones was shocked to learn Carrillo had been stealing from her. Carrillo was also a caregiver to Jones’ elderly mother. The jewelry stolen included a Rolex watch, a Cartier ring and opal diamond ring, and a heart shaped pendant worth more than $38,000, according to records. The Cartier ring, worth $10,000, was recovered, along with some of the jewelry. Jones writes a nationally syndicated column called “Cook it Light,” and has written 32 books.

On Sept. 16, Thomas Walter Clark, 42, was sentenced to 45 years in prison for the home-invasion robbery of Jones and her husband. Aaron Jacob Espinoza, 24, and Hector Guerra, 31, were each sentenced to 26 years and four months in prison for the robbery. Miguel Ocegueda, 24, the getaway driver who did not enter Jones’ house, got 14 years and four months in prison. The four pleaded guilty to two robberies, false imprisonment and felony assault. They took about $30,000 in jewelry from Jones’ home, but almost all of the jewelry was recovered by police.

The vote that came closest to granting a historical designation for the property was one proposed under Criterion D as being representative of a notable work by a master builder, designer, architect or craftsman — that of master architect Irving Gill and his early method of single-wall construction. “It’s the first of its kind, it’s last of its kind and it’s extremely important for its place in Gill’s formative years when he was learning how to do his craft,” said Bruce Coons, executive director of the Save Our Heritage Organisation (SOHO). “I know of no other cottage that is equal to this cottage or even very similar to this cottage even at the time or now.” He contended that if the work were put into the cottage to restore it, it could likely be eligible for the California Register of Historic Resources and even the National Register of Historic Places. “It’s recognizable, it’s unique, it’s historic and it’s an extremely important house,” he said. “It should not be lost. It needs to be designated.” Moomjian did not discredit the architectural mastery of Irving Gill. He did, however, argue there is no way of knowing if the architecture of the cottage was, in fact, Gill’s. “Irving Gill has long been considered a master architect and rightfully so,” Moomjian said. “When you see the property, I think it’s very clear that the building has been so modified that it can’t possibly represent the work of the architect.” According to the HRB’s procedural

guidelines, the matter may be reconsidered once upon the request of a board member who voted on the prevailing side of a vote if there are new facts, laws or changed circumstances that were not known at the time of the original vote and may have affected the board’s decision. The board must first vote on the decision to reconsider and, if passed, the item may be reconsidered again with the new information. HRB secretary Shannon Anthony said no board member has directed her to docket the item for a future meeting. SOHO and members of the La Jolla Historical Society, however, are seeking options like the city’s appellate process to bring the matter back onto HRB’s radar in the hopes the property

will get another chance for historical designation. “The Historic Resources Board’s findings on Windemere Cottage were not only disappointing, but the process by which some members of HRB reached their conclusions was simply flawed,” Bolthouse saiad. “The preponderance of the documentary evidence clearly showed this great structure meets at least the minimum threshold for HRB's own historic designation standards. Given all the great Irving Gill architecture represented throughout La Jolla that has essentially made our town a de facto Irving Gill district, why not enhance La Jolla's historic connection to Gill further by designating Windemere? HRB’s actions just seem antithetical to its fundamental purpose for being.”


CONTINUED FROM Page 1 wildlife and Airstrike Bird Control is highly regulated on both state and federal levels. Cosgrove iterated, however, that the birds are still wild animals. “Ethically, we would not be able to do this if they were not wild,” he said.

“If a perfectly good bird is kept in a cage and not allowed to do its thing, that goes against its nature.” At the moment, the birds are not permitted to take full flight at the hotel, preventing a natural turf war from developing. For now, Cosgrove allows the birds to take off on short, controlled flights or he keeps the birds

tethered beneath the seagulls to discourage them from swooping down on guests. “Once the hawks or owls are above the seagulls, their natural inclination is to attack. When he keeps them tethered beneath the gulls, they simply sit there and the seagulls get agitated. The hawks and owls seem to not even notice or care,” Wilson said. “We are not trying to eliminate or harm any of the seagulls, but rather encourage them to move.” Cosgrove said the number of seagull nests at the site have dropped from 100 to 10 just from the gulls’ exposure to the predatory birds. “After six weeks, I noticed that


there’s half of the birds there,” Cosgrove said. “There is a definite difference. I don’t think they’ll ever completely go away, but we can keep it in control and keep the numbers down.” He said the process is ongoing. Over time, seagulls will begin to think of the property as their natural predators’ lair and steer clear of the area. The predatory birds, however, must make regular appearances in order for that long-term goal to take effect. “Not only is it a cool visual effect, it also is the most natural and effective solution,” Wilson said. “It’s humane in that it allows nature to

Guests and hotel staff alike enjoy seeing the birds on the property grounds and getting a close look at them, especially when Larry Cosgrove, above left, shows off Eurasian eagle owl Peepers’ impressive wingspan. Peepers doesn't fly when on duty. Just his presence is enough to cause seagulls to leave the premises. Birds like Bob, below, a dominant gull often seen at the hotel, create problems for hotel guests with the mess they make as well as their penchant for stealing food.

The La Jolla Historical Society hosted its fourth annual “Feasting on History” progressive dinner on Sept. 24. This year, nearly 100 guests dined on elegant appetizers and socialized over cocktails at one of five distinguished La Jolla homes — many of which have historical roots. The guests then relocated to another one of the eight homes to feast on a main course with a new set of guests. Following the main course, participants gathered at Wisteria Cottage for dessert and coffee catered by Girard Gourmet and decorated by Adelaide’s Flowers. “The idea is to mix the crowd up as much as possible,” said event chair Connie Mullen Branscomb.

run its course.” The unique solution is still in its early stages and the process may take time, but it could prove to be the longterm answer to the issue of those pesky seaside visitors.





Lessons learned from 9/11 Sandy Lippe, former president, University City Community Association With the date 9/11 seared into our memories, we must remember and make a difference on our individual life journey for our country and its future. Certainly this 10th anniversary provided us with an opportunity to reflect on the past and project for the future. In an emotional, two-hanky remembrance service at Torrey Pines Christian Church in La Jolla, Pastor Spitters welcomed new visitors and regulars to the Sunday service on Sept. 11. He talked about the need to be hope bearers, peacemakers and people of forgiveness. In “Give pacifism a chance,” an Aug. 27 New York Times opinion editorial by Louisa Thomas, the author said: “Those who are on active duty — less than one percent of the population — and their families bear most of the burdens [of war].” She went on to point out how easy it would be for unending war to become a reality. As Thomas writes, with the advent of sophisticated “intelligence gathering and weapons technology like drones, the government can use deadly force without popular support or approval,” granting the president exceptional power. “But war,” she continued, “has a way of coming home, eroding our democratic culture as well as our safety.” Two locals who have borne the burden and made a difference after 9/11 are Christine and Tom Johnson. The couple shared their stories with the people gathered at the Torrey Pines church on the 10th anniversary of the tragedy. A young retired Navy captain, Tom grew up in Pacific Beach and graduated from La Jolla High. Christine, who grew up on Long Island, is a Navy captain-select and pediatrician overseeing all Navy pediatricians. She just returned from a six-month humanitarian cruise to the Far East after serving earthquake victims in Haiti in 2010. The parents of three little girls lived through 9/11 to tell their story 10 years later in a church full of people, where the American flag was carried in and out by four firemen from Station 8, a bagpiper’s cry of “Amazing Grace” filled the air and a band of young people sang and played “A Bridge Over Troubled Waters.” Tom joined the Navy in 1987 after college. He participated in Operation Desert Shield and Operation Desert Storm in 1990, earned his MBA at UCLA in 1991 and was in the Reserves from 1994-96. In 1996, he interviewed

with Goldman Sachs in the World Trade Center. It was late in the day after earlier interviews and Tom talked to the interviewer about the 1993 truck bombing of the building. Tom told him “it would probably happen again.” While Tom didn’t take that job in Manhattan, he chose to re-enlist as an officer in Navy intelligence and was in Japan in 1997 and 1998 where he met Christine. On Sept. 11, 2001, Tom was assigned to intelligence work in the Pentagon. Working in his office, he dealt with classified information. Christine was working at Bethesda Hospital in Maryland. Tom talked about the surreal feeling of seeing CNN’s coverage of the Twin Towers being attacked before finding himself running out of the Pentagon after the third plane took out the area on the other side of the building. The irony that one minute he had all that military information at the tip of his fingers and the next he was in a muddy forest with no knowledge of what was happening was not lost on him. For what seemed like an interminable amount of time, Christine and Tom were unable to make contact with each other. Christine learned about the Pentagon hit and finally got Tom’s cell phone call. Fear tore through them both as it must have for so many couples in the military, fire departments, police departments and those glued to television. Many were not as fortunate as the Johnsons. Once Tom and Christine reached their Virginia home, they embraced on their porch for a long time. Their neighbors were supportive. The year following the horrifying experience, there was an anthrax scare and after that, snipers were shooting people in the D.C. area. Going for a jog became dangerous. Life had turned upside down for the Johnsons and all Americans, but Tom and Christine learned many lessons. What have they taken away from their years serving the country during a tumultuous time? Tom counted off six things he has etched in his psyche: take nothing for granted; be ready; each day is a gift; travel light; trust in family; trust in God. The Torrey Pines Christian Church congregation gave Tom and Christine Johnson, both wearing Navy formal dress whites, a standing ovation and a promise to make a difference — not just on 9/11 but on each day — by working for forgiveness and peace and by being that bearer of hope.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR A squid superhighway Dear editor, With reference to your article (“Squid,” Sept. 22, Page 1) and questions on the Humboldt squid situation off La Jolla, I think I can inform you as to what is going on. Currently, there is a northern migration of small-size Humboldt squid along the Southern California coast from northern Mexico. There was reported a week ago a large group of small-size Humboldt squid off the San Diego coast, about 10 square miles, by fishing boats off San Diego. This large migration of Humboldt squid has now been reported near the oil platforms off the Orange County coast. Dr. William Gilly of the department of biological sciences and Hopkins Marine Station of Stanford University is the principal scientist doing research on the Humboldt squid and its patterns of migrations. He predicted the small size of Humboldt squid in the migration north after the last two summers of studying the small-size populations in the Gulf of California. The small-size Humboldt squid are currently in the La Jolla Canyon and have been seen [recently] in the surf zone at the La Jolla Cove. I caught a live Humboldt squid at the La Jolla Cove by hand in the surf zone and, after examining it, returned it to the ocean in the reserve. [On Sept. 21] I recovered two dead Humboldt squid the same day at the La Jolla Shores beach and these are now frozen and will be sent to the laboratory of Dr. Gilly for further research work. Humboldt squid access the coast of La Jolla by upwellings through the La Jolla Canyon from offshore. In this recent migration, the upwelling was

through both La Jolla Canyon and Scripps Canyon with Humboldt squid migrating to the La Jolla Cove area and the Black's Beach area, which is north of Scripps Canyon. This has been the pattern with the Humboldt squid in La Jolla since 2005. The large strandings of Humboldt squid in 2002 were of Humboldt squid that had been dead for several days as evidenced by their discoloration (white). The 2002 Humboldt squid aggregation probably was a migration with an upwelling offshore that then died in the epipelagic zone due to very warm water. Currents transported the dead squid to the La Jolla coast. Kent D. Trego Coastal Environments Oceanography/ Center for Planetary Oceans La Jolla

LJCPA president’s view not shared by all The La Jolla Community Planning Association (LJCPA) is recognized by the City Council to make recommendations to the City Council, Planning Commission, city staff and other governmental agencies on land-use matters. LJCPA standard operating procedures and responsibilities are outlined in Council Policy 600-24 and LJCPA bylaws. The purpose of 600-24 and the city-approved LJCPA’s bylaws are to identify responsibilities and to establish minimum operating procedures governing the conduct of the LJCPA when operating in its official recognized capacity. With this in mind, I read the recent article [in the La Jolla Light] written by the president of the La Jolla Community Planning Association titled “Community View: Acknowledging


errors leads to improving the process” with great interest. I have concluded the article outlined “his view” not the “community view.” The LJCPA review process is broken and is not working for many reasons. Here are just two reasons as it relates to this article: 1. “Votes taken on agenda items shall reflect the positions taken by the elected or appointed positions of the planning group,” according to 60024. On Aug. 4, by an 8 to 4 vote, the LJCPA voted to appeal [President Tony] Crisafi’s project. The president and only the president of the LJCPA is responsible to report LJCPA’s vote to the San Diego project manger in an official correspondence or a letter. This assures the LJCPA actions are included in the report to the decision makers. This was not done. 2. The president insinuated there was confusion as to who would file the LJCPA’s appeal, Crisafi, [trustee Phil] Merten or [trustee Joe] La Cava? There is no confusion, according to the San Diego appeal procedure (information bulletin 505): “When a recognized Community Planning Group (LJCPA) files an appeal, the appeal form must be signed by the current Chair or President of the applicable group.” This was not done. According to Council Policy 60024 and the LJCPA bylaws, “In cases of alleged violations of the LJCPA bylaws or Council Policy 600-24 by a Trustee, the Board of Trustees shall conduct an investigation consistent with 600-24 and the LJCPA bylaws.” . The community view is we will wait for the results of the investigation by the board of the LJCPA trustees. Roger Clark President, The La Jolla Association SUBMISSIONS

Just a smile Smiles, I love them, don’t you? The more I get, the more I give. Of course the inverse works, too. Ever have someone cut you off, not let you complete a turn, or take your parking space? No one is smiling then. Ever give a smile GUEST VIEW without getting one? That’s somewhat Nancy Gardner more rare. Smiles are infectious, not all that easy to find unless you calm your inner spirit. That’s what we need, calm inner spirits, like talking to God. Then smiles build on themselves. It’s been proven that if someone is waiting for a parking space, on average it takes the one vacating the space longer to clear it. Our collective consciousness has spiraled away from the less cluttered days of our youth. Washington D.C. is a good example. How many times does it need to be proven that the economy spins on jobs? The private sector has a better track record at creating jobs if regulators, taxes, and fees can get out of the way. With private sector jobs, our children and grand children don’t need to pay the lifetime pensions. It’s an anomaly that the very politicians and voters who blame the private sector for holding on to cash and not expanding and hiring, are the ones who want to keep changing the rules by increasing taxes, regulations and fees, making building businesses and creating jobs in the US in general, and California in particular, an unattractive option. Take the Real Estate market, motivation is not the problem. Most people want to live in nicer, larger houses. Historically, our populace has churned housing every 5-7 years. Soon we will be running out of inventory as there is virtually no new construction. It takes about 4 years from head to bed when contemplating new housing projects. Rents will be going up and qualifying tightening up. Yet people have been holding back. Let’s review possible motivating factors for the reluctance. Uncertainty due to: the European Sovereign debt crisis, Us debt ceiling debate, Standard and Poor’s downgrade of US long term credit rating, insecurity of what to expect from government regulations, China buying European(Italian) debt and “bottom feeding” on US distressed properties, down grading of certain banks, slow economic growth, continued low



employment, or depressed housing sector? Now the bank regulators are requiring them to have higher reserves. This unfortunately further takes the wind out of the sales of making credit available to small business, the engine most likely to drive job growth. These issues should be somewhat assuaged by the growing optimism that the European markets are solving their own sovereign debt crisis with Greece and hopefully staving off the threat of further weakness in Spain and Italy. The European Financial Stability Facility, EFSF, the EU’s bailout fund is also recapitalizing banks. On this side of the pond, the US Fed has presented “Operation Twist”, named after a 1961 effort to buy longer dated bonds and sell shorter dated securities, inspired by the 1960 Chubby Checker hit of the same name. I met Chubby last year. He’s holding up better than our economy. The current effort seeks to push mortgage rates down by selling $400,000,000 3 year and shorter bonds and buying an equal amount of 6-30 year bonds in an effort to swap shorter maturity government securities for longer term ones. This plan is to be accomplished by June of 2012. It is slightly better than the “printing money” plans of QE 1 and 2. Yes, the economy is depressing. Let’s look at the good news. According to Sandicor as reported by La Jolla Real Estate Brokers Association, the current pending home sales as compared to the same time last year have gone up significantly. At this time in 2010 there were 13 pending single family home sales averaging $1,641,000. Now there are 24 pending with an average sales price of $2,067,281. With the Fed’s intent to keep rates low, and the bond market cooperating--now is the time to buy. Don’t wait for prices to go up. Don’t wait for further complications and regulations. Buy while you can still get a great deal on a new home at an unprecedented low rate. We need life to be simple, back to basics, where is Beaver Cleaver when we need him? Does he have a job now? Are you smiling, yet?

Switch to native grass


MARKET | Vol. 1 Issue 53

For Sale La Jolla Shores Single Story 3BR/2BA

ost lawns are hard to maintain because they are made from varieties of imported grasses that are not acclimatized to the area. They take a lot of watering, fertilizing and mowing as a result. But native grasses could be a great choice for your lawn.


What’s a homeowner to do if they still cant completely give up the need for some lawn area while conforming to the practice of using drought tolerant plants and limiting their effect on the natural ecosystem, that’s where a charging, snorting buffalo races to the rescue. This buffalo I am referring to is UC Verde Buffalo Grass and it’s becoming a true bull in a china shop for the turf industry. UC Verde Buffalo Grass is improved variety of a grass native to the United States, with its natural deep root system it can survive with 75% less water then a standard lawn would require. Being native to the United States also gives it the natural ability to ward off many of the health issues facing standard exotic grasses, thus reducing the need for applications of costly chemicals. And finally, one of my favorite features of this amazing lawn substitute is that its does not need to be mowed if you so choice, eliminating the cost but more importantly the pollution associated with a gas powered lawn mower. No matter the style of your new landscape, if you


Open Sunday 1-3 8516 La Jolla Shores Drive

must have some lawn UC Verde Buffalo Grass can fit right in. Left un-mowed it will reach about 6 inches high and create an almost meadow effect, if mowed (preferably by a push mower) it can resemble a standard lawn and achieve that manicured appearance. During our winter months here along the coast UC Verde Buffalo Grass will enter a dormant or semidormant state, which will include taken on more of a tan look, with some simple measures taken by the homeowner this period is short lived and it will soon return to its green lushness. As more homeowners reconfigure their landscapes to reflect our local ecosystem, some will still cling to the idea of lawns. And for those a stampede of UC Verde Buffalo Grass is one way they can have both a lawn and a drought tolerant landscape.

CONVERGE ON THE VILLAGE BY MARIKO LAMB | VILLAGE NEWS La Jolla Art and Wine Festival (LJAWF) is back again this year for its third annual two-day festival showcasing the best of local, regional and international artists on Oct. 1 and 2 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. One of La Jolla’s most highly anticipated events of the year features something for everyone. More than 100 juried artists, including locals Dottie Stanley, Scott Wright, Shelly Mantier and Essy Ghavameddini, will be presenting their eclectic mix of art ranging from oneof-a-kind shell- and stone-made jewelry to detailed paintings of sea life to a photographic history of San Diego’s sports and entertainment scene. Local breweries and more than 30 regional wineries will be showcasing craft beer and boutique wines for tasting at the festival’s Surfside wine and beer garden. Other activities include Geppetto’s Family Art Center for free children’s activities, a gourmet marketplace and food court, a silent auction with even bigger and better prizes than last year and 14 hours of live music and entertainment — all for a good cause. With tickets at only $10 for adults, $5 for children, seniors and military and free for children under two, “it’s a lot of bang for your buck,” said LJAWF founder and chair Sherry Ahern. Since its launch in 2009, LJAWF has raised more than $40,000 a year for key programs at Bird Rock, La Jolla and Torrey Pines elementary schools, including the arts, music, science, physical education, technology, library and on-site medical care. Ahern said her intent in founding the festival three years ago was to bring art back to La Jolla.

“La Jolla has been an artists’ community forever,” she said. In 1894, one of La Jolla’s first citizens, artist Anna Held Heinrich, founded the famed “Green Dragon Colony,” which served as a retreat where artists, writers, novelists and composers created masterpieces in their picturesque seaside studios. “When we would come to La Jolla, we would always see artists painting on easels by the beach,” she said reminiscing about her childhood spent in La Jolla. “I wanted to incorporate that with a fundraiser for schools that so badly need the money.” Ahern said cuts to all three schools this year are more significant than ever. “We owe it to the next generation to preserve these creative outlets and important programs,” said Ahern. “The support from the local community is phenomenal and continues to gain momentum each and every year.” This year, the festival is expected to draw more than 20,000 visitors. “This third year is going to be the best year ever,” Ahern said. She said she attributes the festival’s success to the hard work of volunteers. Featured artist and Torrey Pines Elementary School parent Karen

DePodesta, who will be showcasing her abstract acrylic paintings, said the festival means more to her than just a fun time with the kids. “Public schools in La Jolla receive the least amount of funding in all San Diego school districts,” she said. She added that although parents have made it a point to try to retain crucial-but-underfunded areas like art, on-site medical care and physical education, the level at which the programs have been able to get funded vary. “Kids who participate in art do better in school,” she said. “Exposure to the arts — music, art and drama — is something very valuable that we can gift to our children.” For more information about the La Jolla Art and Wine Festival, visit or call (858) 4541699. The festival will take place on Girard Avenue between Pearl and Genter streets.

People coming to live in La Jolla in the early 1900s usually came for one of three reasons: they had heard of the climate and great natural beauty and wanted to partake of it; they were writers and artists and wanted to join more of their kind; or they hoped to enjoy some of the monetary benefits of developing real estate. Arriving in La Jolla in 1915 after a youthful career in the newspaper business in New York and Chicago, Ray Clarke Rose came for all three reasons. He’d heard of the natural beauty. He was a writer and a poet. And his mother, Elizabeth Clark Lowry — a descendant of the developer of Newport, R.I. — had purchased 500 acres of the La Jolla Shores area three years earlier, hoping to develop it as “Newport West.” Rose, familiarly known as R.C., became sales manager for the Shores development, established his own family in La Jolla in a cottage at Silverado Street and Herschel Avenue and continued to write articles and poetry extolling the beauty of the seaside village. He became friends with other writers and artists in the community, including art photographer Leopold Hugo, whose photographs are the subject of a current exhibit at the la Jolla Historical Society’s Wisteria Cottage, 780 Prospect St. Rose also became a prominent figure in the community, co-founding the La Jolla Beach and Yacht Club (now Beach and Tennis) in the 1920s and was a member of the exclusive male club that identified themselves as The Cavemen (they signed signatures with blood, wore animal skins and met in the caves — J.C. Harper, Ellen Browning Scripps’ attorney, was called “Big Stick” and R.C.,

“Little Stick”). To help with the sale of lots in the Shores, Rose published a small booklet called “La Jolla, California: The Little Town of Heart’s Desire,” which he wrote and compiled with some of Hugo’s photographs, describing and showing beautiful vistas, attractive seasides, fine homes and architecturally significant buildings. Rose describes La Jolla as drawing “to its comforting bosom old and young from everywhere who have refinement and discrimination, and who enjoy all sea sports in safest environment, the life of the open hills and the social pleasures of a community with every modern convenience and exceptional neighborliness.” Lots for Rose’s original development in the Shores (then called La Jolla Vista) consisted of “villa sites ranging in size from 75x100 feet to several acres” offering “superb ocean front cliff parcels extending from improved street to mean high tide line; lots on Spindrift Beach, famous for bathing and fishing; sheltered valley and hill slope areas with canyon vistas.” But Rose’s mother’s vision for “Newport West” never quite materialized. After her death, 100 acres of the waterfront property passed to the Evans Lee Corporation of Los Angeles whose sales were affected by the Great Depression. A few years later, another well-known La Jolla family, the F. W. Kelloggs, became the leading force in the La Jolla Shores development. Rose died in La Jolla in 1945 at age 75. In his obituary, he was remembered firstly, as “a former New York and Chicago newspaperman, author and poet” and “author of ‘Out of the Ginger Jar,’” and, secondly, as “devoting himself to real estate.” In 1912, his mother had purchased the entire 500 acres of the Shores for $225,000.

President Obama made an appearance in San Diego on Sept. 26. His brief stay included a re-election campaign fundraiser at a private La Jolla home. Photographer Paul Hansen captured Air Force One from Mount Soledad as the presidential plane made its way from MCAS Miramar to Los Angeles.

It was near sundown on Sept. 17, and the time was nigh for the ROMP Roundup. Cowpokes, sodbusters, rustlers, saloon girls and other denizens of the West moseyed over to the Ronald McDonald House spread for a big shindig. They enjoyed cowboy cocktails like the Romp-a-Loma (reposado tequila, grapefruit soda and lime juice) in the big saloon, where seasoned oyster “po’ boy” sandwiches and other fixin’s were abundant and a girl in buckskins tap danced and played the fiddle. Fancydressed ladies in bustles and fishnets offered their temptations (raffle tickets) and Clint Eastwood westerns played on video screens. Co-chairs Joye Blount, Mary Drake and Denise Lara (none looking anything like schoolmarms) headed up the hoedown with Sheriff Bill Hoehn and his missus, Susan, as honorary chairs. Country vittles like chicken, ribs and exceptionally tasty beans were served in a tiered dining venue under the stars, where all tables had great views of the stage. KSON radio’s John Flint and Tammy Lee emceed the program. Guests already knew the Ronald McDonald House provides accommodations for families with children being treated at San Diego area hospitals including Kaiser, Rady Children’s and others. But not everyone understood that the cost of putting up a family is about $150 per night that families are asked to pay only 10 percent — or $15 — per night and that the average stay for a family is 10 days. Another significant fact: McDonald’s restaurants pay for 90 percent of the cost of operating the Ronald McDonald Houses; the other 10 percent is funded by donations. A short video added insight, including a mother’s statement that “if it weren’t for Ronald McDonald House, I’d be sleeping in my car to be close to my daughter.” Guests responded to the live auction with generous and spirited bidding. Mary Keough Lyman bought the tiny, incredibly cute, sleepy Yorkie puppy; two Puerto Vallarta vacations for 10 people sold for $12,000 each (perhaps


The next day, the Neurosciences Institute held its yearly “Minding the Arts” event. Generous enough to make its acoustically superb auditorium available free of charge to local nonprofit performing arts groups, the Institute must nevertheless somehow recoup the significant costs of maintenance, security, energy, etc. To that end, it holds a festive annual gathering offering libations and gourmet culinary fare from the finest area purveyors. Synergistically, this also helps the Institute make the public aware of its world-class scientific research activities directed toward understanding human brain function. This year, harpist Julia Schorn played during the reception, after which San Diego Opera director Ian Campbell emceed a tripartite concert featuring performances by musicians from the Athenaeum, San Diego Taiko and the San Diego Symphony.


That same evening, the Patrons of the Prado held a sunset cocktail party at the La Jolla oceanfront home of Barbara and Dr. Bill McColl. Proceeds from the organization’s July gala (in the form of checks for approximately $50,000 each) were presented to the Museum of Photographic Arts, the San Diego History Center and the San Diego Museum of Art. Since 1997, the Patrons have bestowed nearly $2 million to cultural institutions along Balboa Park’s Prado. Honorary lifetime memberships for extraordinary service to the organization were conferred to Betty Brayshay and Chris Fontana and Anita Crider was installed as the group’s new president. Guests enjoyed a sunset buffet dinner of exceptional quality. ROMP: below: Phillip and Kim Palumbo (he’s president of SD McDonald’s Coop), David Marino, Linda and Don Swortwood

A couple came on stage to describe how Ronald McDonald House helped them while their daughter went through five open-heart surgeries at Children’s Hospital. They eventually lost her, but they wanted to express their thanks for the 56 days of accommodations they received. Pledges of support were requested, and — led by $25,000 from Mary and Judson Drake — harvested bales of bucks (over $100,000). Country Music Award-nominated band Steel Magnolia performed in concert. Led by a cute couple with hot onstage chemistry, the audience seemed to fall completely and justifiably in love with them.

This season, the J*Company at Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center rolls out three productions that celebrate work produced by La Jolla Playhouse that went on to Broadway. Those works are “The Who’s Tommy,” billed as a classic rock music with classic J*Company family values (Dec. 2-11); “Thoroughly Modern Millie,” a roaring 1920s musical (March 2-18, 2012); and “Xanadu — the Musical” (May 4-13, 2012). Playing through Oct. 2 only, as some kind of preamble of nebulous connection to the season’s theme, J*Company presents a summer bonus show, Disney’s “Mulan,” a two-hour junior version based on the 1998 film and the story “Fa Mulan” by Robert D. San Souci. The piece, which stars as many kids as can fit in the Garfield Theatre, is staged by J*Company artistic director Joey Landwehr. One of the musical’s composers, Jeanine Tesori, wrote the score for “Millie.” Daughter of celebrated Chinese warrior Fa Zhou (Nikolay Riazanov), Mulan (talented, personality filled Gabrielle Quiwa) is an only child. When the Huns attack China, representatives of the emperor come to gather one soldier from each family. Even though Fa Zhou is aged, suffering from war wounds and fears going into battle, he is conscripted. Mulan steals his orders, disguises herself as a warrior, puts on a swagger and a sword, and, accompanied by a dragon named Mushu (Scott Peterson) and a Lucky Cricket (adorable Rebecca Datnow), she goes to war. Utilizing the forces of nature, diminutive Mulan defeats the Huns through brains not brawn and becomes a hero recognized by the emperor himself (Nathan Conlon). Her additional prize is Captain Shang (tall and handsome Cameron Chang). Songs include “Written in Stone,” sung by the ancestors (Kendal Dastrup, Talia Goodman, Hannah Houts, Kaydon Schanberger and Noga Tour) and the company of villagers; “Honor to Us All,” “I’ll Make a Man Out of You,” “A Girl Worth Fighting For” and the closing love song, “My Heart’s Reflection.” The design work is impressive. Devin P. Brawley is choreographer; Susan Huniu, musical director; Chris Plonka, set designer; Lisa Forrest, costume designer; and Rogelio Vasquez. Landwehr manages his company of 31 named roles, numerous Huns, fathers and mothers exceptionally well. In some cases, the “ham” factors are irrepressible, but remember, these are kids. The overall effect is admirable and even thrilling, especially for the real parents and all the youthful theatergoers, many of whom are experiencing live theater for the first time. Remaining performances are 8 p.m. on Oct. 1 and 2 and 4:30 p.m. on Oct. 2 at the David and Dorothea Garfield Theatre, Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center, Jacobs Family Campus, 4126 Executive Drive, $16, or (858) 362-1348.

DINING 20 ‘Showdown’ to cook up competition THURSDAY · SEPTEMBER 29, 2011 LA JOLLA VILLAGE NEWS

Culinary event to aid domestic violence support services BY LORALEE OLEJNIK | VILLAGE NEWS

San Diego’s top chefs will come together in healthy competition to raise money for domestic violence awareness programs and support services during the seventh annual Center for Community Solutions (CCS) “Chef Showdown” on Thursday, Oct. 6 at NTC Promenade’s Legacy Plaza. To mark National Domestic Violence Prevention Month in October, San Diego’s culinary masters will be coming together for an evening of food, drink, entertainment and an Iron Chef-style competition. “Chef Showdown unites chefs, restaurants and community supporters around a common cause: to end relationship and sexual violence,” said Wendy Urushima-Conn, associate director of development for CCS. “As a major provider of life-changing programs and services, many of which have been threatened by continuous federal and state budget cuts, we need increased local support to continue assisting more than 30,000 women, men and children each year who are affected by sexual assault, domestic violence and elder abuse.” The CCS is a nonprofit agency that provides a range of community programs to prevent domestic violence and support victims of violence and sexual assault. The organization, founded in 1969, provides emergency shelters, legal counseling, a rape crisis center and a countywide 24-

hour bilingual crisis helpline. It also will be returning this year as a judge offers services for men and same-sex in the chef competition. “CCS’ Chef couples.

Guests will feast eyes, stomachs on fine art, wine and fare at Fleming’s Steakhouse On Oct. 2, Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar in La Jolla is offering the perfect combination of food, wine and art in an exclusive afternoon bistro at 1 p.m. to celebrate the works of special guest artist Christopher M. The contemporary realist painter, also known as the “Painter of Chefs,” will discuss his artwork — pieces which expressively capture the vibrancy of chefs at work. His oil paintings illustrate the romance of culinary arts through the use of saturated yet subdued color that creates a subtle glow of light in the portraits. In addition to feasting their eyes on his artwork, guests can indulge in a special four-course lunch menu prepared by Fleming’s Chef Partner Christopher Gardner. The meal will begin with five appetizers, including blue cheese flatbread and crab frittatas, before moving along to the first course of baby beet and fresh mozzarella salad with a balsamic date reduction and micro absinthe greens. The entrée selections include filet tenderloin and lamb chop or blackened ahi tuna with cabernet sauce, followed by a dessert station with Fleming’s favorites like crème brulee and walnut turtle pie. Each course will be paired with Crocker and Starr Winery’s exquisite Bordeaux-style blends including the 2007 and 2009 Bridesmaid collection blends and 2008 cabernet franc St. Helena. Winemaker Pam Starr will also be on hand to guide guests through the food and wine pairings throughout the meal. Fleming’s La Jolla is located at 8970 University Center Land. To make reservations for the afternoon bistro, call (858) 535-0078. The event is $55 per guest excluding tax and gratuity. — Mariko Lamb





Donovan’s Steak House They may look good enough to eat, but the paintings and sculptures at Donovan’s of La Jolla are strictly off limits – so you’ll have to content yourself with the USDA prime beef, the eatery’s star attraction. If steak isn’t in the plan, pork and veal chops and succulent seafood will satisfy the most discriminating of palates. And at Donovan’s, fresh seasonal vegetables and your choice of potato are always included with each entrée.
