MATRIARCH BY MARIKO LAMB | VILLAGE NEWS Ellen Browning Scripps — the benefactress whose philanthropic spirit is immortalized through charitable trusts she left to La Jolla — will be honored for her 175th birthday on Oct. 18. A fixture in La Jolla from the time she moved there in 1897 until her death in 1932, Scripps founded key institutions and left a lifetime’s worth of philanthropic trusts to La Jolla’s schools, sciences, art, libraries, hospitals, research institutions,

parks and churches of various denominations. She even patronized modern, progressive architecture in La Jolla by advancing the works of renowned architect Irving Gill and his designs at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, The Bishop’s School and the La Jolla Woman’s Club. “She is remembered for her extraordinary generosity, her wisdom and humanity,” said Molly McClain, history professor at University of San Diego and author of a forthcoming biography of Ellen Browning Scripps. “She also should be characterized as a strong-minded, even ambitious, professional woman who ignored the SEE SCRIPPS, Page 5

Tastes of the season City Council OKs deal for Toyota beach vehicles for lifeguards, ad campaign BY NEAL PUTNAM | VILLAGE NEWS The City Council voted 7-0 on Oct. 10 to approve a marketing partnership with Toyota that could save up to $1 million for the city to use Toyota vehicles free for two years on city beaches as the “official vehicle of San Diego lifeguards.” San Diego Lifeguard Services Chief Rick Wurts, along with Mary Lewis, the city’s chief financial officer, made the proposal to the City Council. Lewis estimated the savings between $555,000 and $1.1 million, and calls for the free use of the Toyota vehicles without the obligation of purchase or lease during the two-year agreement. Toyota will loan 34 vehicles, some of which will be used in television commercials to be filmed at unspecified city beaches. “31 of the 34 (city lifeguard) vehicles are past due for replacement,” Lewis told councilmembers on Monday. The city will have an option to purchase the vehicles after the two-year deal expires. Because the vehicles will be used at the beach where ocean conditions can pummel them, Toyota will undercoat the bottom of the vehicles to prevent rust. The city will be responsible for repairs and gasoline during the contract. “I really want to compliment Toyota,” said Wurts. “One of the important things we need to do the job are reliable vehicles to get to the rescues.”

Other rescue officials echoed the sentiment. “We’re grateful for this deal. We’re really in favor of this,” lifeguard Larry Sanders told councilmembers. “We understand that savings will be put toward our budget, which will help our training.” District 8 City Councilman David Alvarez made the motion to authorize Mayor Jerry Sanders to sign the agreement, a move seconded by District 1 City Councilwoman Sherri Lightner. In approving the deal, the council also authorized a commission of more than $49,100 to the marketing consultant who brought the Toyota deal to the city. Alvarez and District 5 City Councilman Carl DeMaio were critical of paying the commission, but Lewis said it had been authorized by the City Council beforehand. No specific beach area was mentioned as to where the commercials will be made or when. The Japanese automaker will reportedly reimburse the city for the cost of staff time for recording commercials. Toyota will be mentioned on the city’s website and direct marketing to municipal employees will be extended, according to the plan. Toyota will also sponsor city-organized “Water Safety Days” events in San Diego. The proposal was first heard Sept. 21 by the council’s Budget & Finance Committee and forwarded on to the City Council for formal approval.

Giant sinkhole emerges, closes street BY MARIKO LAMB | VILLAGE NEWS An eight-foot-deep sinkhole — originally 15 to 20 feet wide — more than doubled in size since it first opened around 7:30 a.m. on Oct. 6, closing traffic in two lanes on Campus Point Drive near Campus Point Court until further notice. A broken storm water pipe ruptured beneath the street, eroding the soil and causing the road to col-

lapse, said San Diego Storm Water Department spokesman Bill Harris. No one was injured, however traffic was diverted around the giant chasm through a private parking lot, and the water main line serving 30 nearby businesses was shut off following the incident. “We have since televised the line, and it looks like it spans well across the road,” Harris said, estimating the potential break to be some

300 plus feet. “It’s pretty extensive.” Harris said the pipe was fragile already, and the rain on Oct. 5 might have been the last straw for the decaying pipe, which was installed in 1979. “This type of corrugated pipe was banned in 1992,” he said. “We’d known that this site was a SEE SINKHOLE, Page 3

• Michael Petrascheck, assistant professor at Scripps Research Institute, won the prestigious National Institutes of Health (NIH) Michael Director’s New Petrascheck Innovator Award. Announced by NIH director Francis S. Collins at the seventh annual NIH Director’s Pioneer Award Symposium on Sept. 20, the award provides each recipient with $1.5 million in research funding over five years. Petrascheck, a member of the department of chemical physiology, the department of molecular and experimental medicine and the Dorris Neuroscience Center at Scripps Research, will use the award to conduct research on aging and lifespan in C. elegans, a flatworm widely used in aging research. The project will test strategies that might be used in human therapies. “The Innovator Award will allow me to focus more of my attention on science,” said Petrascheck. “We now have the means necessary to develop the tools that will allow us to determine how sensory perception influences aging and how sensory perception could be targeted by small molecules to treat age-related disease.” Winners of the NIH Director's New Innovator Award are selected on the basis of individual creativity, the

innovativeness of his or her research approaches and the potential of the proposed project, if successful, to have a significant impact on an important biomedical or behavioral research problem. “The NIH Director’s Award programs reinvigorate the biomedical work force by providing unique opportunities to conduct research that is neither incremental nor conventional,” said James M. Anderson, director of the Division of Program Coordination, Planning and Strategic Initiatives, who guides the NIH common fund’s high-risk research program. “The awards are intended to catalyze giant leaps forward for any area of biomedical research, allowing investigators to go in entirely new directions.” More information on the New Innovator Award is at, including information on this year's winners. • La Jollan Craig R.

PEOPLE the market and the addition of shoulder harnesses in the rear seats of automobiles. Additionally, McClellan has been instrumental in SUV rollover safety, litigating more SUV rollover cases than any other San Diego lawyer. He was the first San Diego lawyer to advocate electronic stability-control systems for SUVs and to bring suit for a manufacturer’s failure to provide that essential safety system. He has handled many cases against automobile manufacturers that have received national and international attention. “I am quite honored to be recognized by my peers for the work that I am doing on behalf of my clients to make automobiles, and all products, safer,” McClellan said.

La Jolla resident gives Mission Beach signs a facelift BY KEITH ANTIGIOVANNI | VILLAGE NEWS La Jolla resident Chris Cott, the creator of the “Welcome to Mission Beach” signs, has given his neighborly creations a facelift. Cott, a former Mission Beach resident, restored one sign on the north side of West Mission Bay Drive near the Bahia Hotel and a second sign at the intersection of Pacific Beach Drive and Mission Boulevard near the Catamaran hotel at the Pacific Beach/Mission Beach border. “Restoring the sign is my way of saying thanks for all the good times I had in Mission Beach,” Cott said. Over the last few years, the signs have battered by the weather conditions in the beach area. A faulty sprinkler at the West Mission Bay location also sprayed an abundance of water on the sign at night. “I was able to put a new form of ‘clear’ on the signs with UV protection,” he said. Cott said the new clear will help protect for longer periods of time against the sun, air and water. He originally designed, built and installed the signs in 2006 after he was given approval by the Mission Beach Town Council (MBTC) to post the signs. He also spent 24 years as a Mis-

His previous restoration work includes the Weyland mural at The Plunge swimming pool and the Wavehouse Gym’s exterior sign. Cott said he tried to get help from the MBTC to get funding to restore the signs but decided to take action on his own. Cott said he also hopes the restoration of the sign will inspire others to make the beach area a better place. “I’m proud of the work that I did and enjoyed every minute of it. Hopefully I’ll see others making improvements in Mission Beach,” Cott said.

Former Hennessey’s CFO arrested for alleged embezzlement Redondo Beach police detectives arrested former Hennessey’s CFO James Cram, 54, from his Rancho Palos Verdes home on Oct. 6 on 19 felony counts, including suspectJAMES CRAM ed grand theft,


money laundering and tax evasion from Hennessey’s Tavern Inc., a pubstyle restaurant with 10 locations in Southern California including La Jolla, Pacific Beach and San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter. Cram worked for Hennessey’s Tavern Inc. as the company’s CFO from 2006 to 2010. After Cram left the position, an audit on the company revealed discrepancies in the books, leading owner Paul Hennessey to alert authorities. Redondo police Sgt. Shawn Freeman said the yearlong investigation led police to believe Cram was signing checks in Paul Hennesesy’s name during the course of his employment. He is suspected of embezzling nearly $1.15 million from the company and its owners during that time. He is currently being held at the Redondo Beach Police Department on $500,000 bail. — Mariko Lamb

Councilman’s office to match donations to SDPD beach bicycle unit BY KEITH ANTIGIOVANNI | VILLAGE NEWS Fundraising to outfit the Beach Bicycle Team of the San Diego Police Department’s Northern Division — a unit that serves Pacific Beach, Mission Beach and La Jolla — just got a boost from a beach-area city councilman. District 2 City Councilman Kevin Faulconer said his office will match up to $3,000 from individual and business donations to help pay for the standard police light, sirens and law enforcement kits for the beach bicycle

team. Faulconer said he believes the beach team will be more effective in dealing with law enforcement issues in the high-density beach environment with the added funding. “This give us the ability to interact with beachgoers in a more direct way by accessing areas that patrol cars cannot — and at a faster speed than on foot — while building community relationships,” Faulconer said. The new equipment will include high-visibility rechargeable front and rear police lights, high decibel sirens,

hand controls, rear racks and police bags. Among the organizations that have been working behind the scenes to augment the beach bicycle team’s budget is the Pacific Beach Town Council (PBTC). “Because of budget cuts to the police department, it is difficult to find money to pay for the new equipment,” said Jerry Hall, PBTC vice president and member of the Town Council’s Police and Emergency Services Appreciation Night (PAESAN) Committee.

The overall cost of the needed equipment is $6,000. Donations will be accepted through Nov. 30. The police Beach Bicycle Team is made up of 10 officers and 10 bicycles. To donate, send a check to: San Diego Police Foundation, C/O PAESAN Bicycle Program, 8910 University Center Lane, Suite 455, San Diego, 92122.

A mermaid’s lounge chair?

Photographer Don Balch was paddle boarding during the red tide recently and spotted something submerged in the rocks of La Jolla Cove. “Diving down, I was surprised to pull up a sturdy lounge chair that was covered with encrusted sea plants on its underside,” he said. “It had probably been underwater for at least seven months, maybe getting washed away from La Jolla Shores during a storm last winter. “I usually pick up a bit of trash and debris at the beach when I'm there, to help keep it clean, but this takes it to a new level!”

rules and conventions of Victorian society and embraced modernity and reform.” As the only college-educated sibling of 10 — highly unusual for women at the time — she was conscious of the fact she was an anomaly of sorts, not adhering to the traditional standards set for women of the time and always pushing the envelope for women’s rights. “She believed in the equality of the human race, the equality of the sexes and the potential for human creativity,” McClain said. “She particularly liked to see women apply their intelligence and education to real world problems, writing ‘it is so good to find women doing things instead of spending their time in cooking dainties and embroidering underwear.’” Scripps, who never married or had children, amassed much of her fortune through her own hard-earned work and investment in her brothers’ Midwestern newspaper franchise. McClain, editor of “The journal of San Diego History,” said Scripps was an astute businesswoman and clever accountant, yet she despised “Gilded Age monopolists” who accumulated vast fortunes and founded family dynasties — an ambition she saw in her brothers, James and Edward. “She saw inherited wealth as fundamentally undemocratic, tending toward the creation of an American aristocracy,” she said. “Ellen Scripps was not going to help her brothers turn a middle-class family into plutocrats. As a result, she gave away as much money as possible to institutions that aimed to improve society and to advance democratic principles.” She considered the gifts she left, often anonymously, to be investments — “a trust for the benefit of humanity” — not a trust that would only benefit and potentially corrupt the Scripps family in the future. The legacy of La Jolla’s most notable patron will certainly prevail for many more years to come in through education institutions, innovations in science, maintenance of history and culture and advancements in the general welfare of La Jollans well into the future. For now, La Jollans will celebrate the life and works of Ellen Browning Scripps with several events throughout the village. The Bishop’s School will host “Portraits of Excellence” to honor Scripps’ birthday and the legacy she left in the community. The evening celebration will begin at 6 p.m. on Oct. 22 with drinks and socializing at the school’s Rahr Terrace. At 7 p.m., guests will relocate to the Eva May Fleet Athletic Center for dinner, an awards presentation and live music by alumni musician Gary Jules and party band Dirty Bird to celebrate the school’s founder and honor exceptional alumni and faculty who embody her spirit and character. The La Jolla Historical Society will also host its annual Ellen Browning Scripps birthday luncheon from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Oct. 15 at UCSD’s Ida and Cecil Green Faculty Club. Special guest speaker Mary Beebe, founding director of the Stuart Collection and sculptor of a new bust of Scripps now on view at the Historical Society, will give a tour of selected works from the collection following the luncheon.



CIVICreport La Jolla Community Planning Association, Oct. 6 LJCPA addresses administrative errors What many LJCPA trustees considered an honest mistake by miscommunication has led the planning group to re-evaluate its administrative procedures in filing an appeal when the president or other trustees are involved in the project at hand. After an appeal was never filed for construction on the property at 1912 Spindrift Drive — of which LJCPA president Tony Crisafi is the architect — the trustees took a closer look at what action should take place in a situation where the president is required to recuse himself from the room and is not allowed to file an appeal. “The city will not accept an appeal from the president when he is involved in the project,” said Vice President Rob Whittemore. “It has to be done some other way.” Whittemore suggested several options for the trustees to consider. One solution would be to charge certain trustees, starting with the vice president, secretary, then treasurer, to file the appeal, and in all cases the secretary would verify the appeal was filed. City representative Lesley Henegar advised the LJCPA to clean up the administrative record by rescinding all actions taken on the project and vote on the revised project. Several trustees questioned the procedure because the LJCPA’s decision would have no weight. “They’ve already got their permits, and we can’t give the city any more recommendations,” said trustee Devin Burstein. “They’re already permitted, so why would we go back to hear something, to what end?” Although treasurer Jim Fitzgerald commended the applicant for his “good faith” efforts in amending the project plans to meet the trustees’ concerns, he agreed that an LJCPA vote could be a dead end. “The record is the record. There’s nothing that we’re going to do tonight that is going to alter the outcome with respect to the permitting for the pro-

ject,” he said. “I would like to acknowledge the applicant for volunteering to come back and make a presentation this evening, even though under the circumstances it wasn’t required.” Despite the concerns, the LJCPA voted to rescind all previous actions made on the project and voted to approve the amended plans as recommended by the city. Heneger informed trustees that any trustee, not only the president, may file an appeal for free and members of the public may file an appeal on a project for $100. Whittemore said the LJCPA will move forward with the city’s suggestions to ensure the honest mistake is impossible to repeat.

Paseo del Ocaso residents don’t want ‘bully’ on the block Longtime Paseo del Ocaso residents Froeb Herman and Peggy Davis requested the LJCPA investigate how building permits at the Gatto residence, located at 8368 Paseo del Ocaso, were approved. Davis said the LJCPA, La Jolla Shores Permit Review Board and officers from the city approved the coastal development permit, site development permit and mitigated negative declaration in error. “This residence is a bully to the rest of the people on Paseo del Ocaso,” Herman said. Trustee Phil Merton said he did some investigation on the development project, and he agrees it is at odds with the La Jolla Shores PDO. Trustee Rob Whittemore suggested that some of the committees were misinformed. “It seems like some of the neighbors and even the committees may have been given misleading information, and I don’t know how we can just ignore that,” he said. Whittemore suggested forming a committee or putting the item on a future agenda to determine how the permits were approved.

Neighbors eschew commercial creep on residential street The LJCPA urged the PDO Committee to review the Riford Center’s new design plans for conformance to the PDO following testimony by Bonair Street neighbors who said they want to preserve the character, charm and neighborly feel of their residential street by eliminating an “unnecessary” side entrance currently in the Riford Center’s reconstruction plans. After continuous pleas to the Riford Center’s board to relocate a proposed ADA-compliant handicap entrance from a side entrance on Bonair Street to the front entrance on La Jolla Boulevard, the board altered its plans to accommodate the neighbors’ requests. Still, Bonair Street neighbors are not satisfied with the new design plans. Although the ADA-compliant handicap entrance has been relocated from the side entrance to the front, accommodating neighbors’ requests, the plans still include a side entrance, which neighbors fear will cause commercial creep on their quiet street. “We strongly support the Riford senior center in its mission to serve seniors and we welcome the new decision to comply to the ADA and construct the ramp at the front of the building,” resident Tricia Kaye said. “But we are equally appalled that the Riford Center board is persistent in its pursuit of an unnecessary additional side entrance.” She urged the LJCPA to refer the item back to the PDO Committee for a review of the Riford Center’s revised plans. “We all want to see the Riford Center

prosper, but not at the expense of the special character of this neighborhood,” said Fran Zimmerman, former 23-year resident of Bonair Street.

During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, take risk factors into account Dr. James N. Martin, president, American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists Breast cancer is the second most common cause of cancer deaths among women in the U.S. It’s not surprising that a diagnosis of this disease is a fear many women share. However, being informed about the risk factors, detection and treatment of breast cancer can help empower women to move beyond fear and into action. The two main risk factors for breast cancer are being a woman and getting older. Family history, personal history of certain cancers, no pregnancies or first pregnancy later in life, starting periods before age 12 or menopause at age 55 or after, obesity, alcohol intake and use of some types of hormone therapy can also increase a woman’s risk. While some risk factors, including age and family history, are beyond your control, others such as weight and the amount of alcohol you drink can be improved. You can learn more about your risk of breast and other cancers at Women with breast cancer have up to a 98 percent survival rate when it is caught at an early stage. Earlier detection and advances in treatment have led to the gradual decrease in breast cancer deaths. Mammography screening remains the best available method to detect breast cancer early. Regular mammograms are crucial to identifying tumors when they are most treatable, but unfortunately, many women skip being screened. ACOG recommends that all women ages 40 and older should have a mammogram annually. If you have certain risk factors, such as being a carrier of the BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene, your doctor may suggest mammography screening at a younger age. High-risk women should discuss their prevention options with their doctors. For information on where you can find

free or low-cost mammography screenings, go to Women ages 40 and older should also have their breasts examined by their doctor annually. Women ages 20–39 should have this done every one to three years. Additionally, all women ages 20 and older should become familiar with the normal appearance and feel of their breasts and tell their doctor if they notice any changes. There are currently a number of effective treatment options available for breast cancer. Ultimately, a woman and her doctor will choose the treatment that is right for her, based on the location and extent of the cancer, her age and preferences, and the risks and benefits of each treatment. As a national sponsor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, ACOG encourages women to focus on breast health now.

ONE MINUTE WITH LEON CAMPBELL Entertainment is a necessity. It has nothing to do with nutrition, shelter, water and protection from enemies. In past generations, and even today in some parts of the world, nearly all of the waking hours are spent simply surviving. The essential needs of the human body and reproduction are the objects of living. However, today such essentials can be provided by working only eight hours a day, five days a week. This leaves eight hours for five days, together

with two full days, to spend not seeking survival. The brain, already well-nourished, seeks stimulation. Without stimulation depression follows with a decline in health, even death. Entertainment provides stimulation. Therefore, it is a necessity. The choice of entertainment is up to the individual, such as spectator sports, movies or just reading. I like to think that this commentary is entertaining and therefore a necessity. If it is not entertaining, and therefore not a necessity, I like to think of it as a luxury.” — Leon Campbell lives in La Jolla

roll out their

FALL Roy’s yuzu crab-stuffed shrimp is offered on its “Fall Prix Fixe Menu.” Courtesy photo


an Diegans may not experience a dramatic change of seasons, — colorful foliage, falling leaves, crisp air requiring the dragging out of heavy wool sweaters and jackets — but we do undergo our own kind of seasonal transitions. One of the ways in which we ring in the crisper months is with our food, and many of La Jolla’s restaurants are taking the opportunity to introduce their autumnal fare. Here are a few of the menus bringing cool-weather comfort food to La Jolla: • Stephen Window, executive chef of Roppongi Restaurant and Sushi Bar, is introducing the restaurant’s Fall Fireside menu, complete with a variety of dishes and lounge bites featuring the season’s star ingredients — ideal for enjoying next to the restaurant’s outdoor firepit. Perfect autumn items on the menu include the Walla Walla sweet onion soup with braised short rib and tempura scallions. Known for their exceptional sweetness come late summer and early fall, the onions counteract the rich meat in this seasonally inspired soup. Also reaching their peak ripeness in the fall, persimmons shine in the persimmon cranberry crisp dessert with homemade butterscotch gelato. For small bites, the menu offers the papadam Indian cracker with mango chutney and cucumber riata, a burst of sweet and tangy flavors. The menus took the place of the restaurant's previous 'Bikini Menus' on Sept.1 and will run through Dec. 31. All items are available after 3 p.m. For more information, visit • Roy’s Hawaiian restaurant is ringing in fall with a new three-course “Fall Prix Fixe” menu. Created by five of the fusion restaurant’s chef partners, the menu showcases each of the chef’s own culinary interpretation of the season. Guests may choose from appetizer choices of crispy potato croquettes, Fuji apple salad or yuzu crab stuffed shrimp. Entrée choices include rown butter seared


salmon, Asian-style coq au vin and cherry-stuffed pork tenderloin roulade. The meal finishes off with a decadent dessert course of harvest spice cake or Roy’s signature melting hot chocolate soufflé. “Our chef partners are encouraged to create their own recipes unique to their cooking style,” said corporate executive chef Kiel Lombardo. “This Fall Prix Fixe menu mirrors Roy’s exquisite legacy while also showcasing the chef partners’ cooking styles.” The menu is available through December for $35.95 per person. Roy’s La Jolla is located at 8670 Genesee Ave. Private dining is available year-round by contacting the local group sales manager. For more information, visit • Chefs Bernard Guillas and Ron Oliver of The Marine Room are always eager to cook with seasonal ingredients, and fall is no exception. The restaurant is offering seasonal events this fall, including a cooking class featuring instruction from the award-winning chefs on how to prepare a three-cheese mushroom torte, Incan-spiced Washington organic steelhead and a Julian apple and sun-dried cherry cobbler. The class will be held on Oct. 19 for $70 and will include dinner and wine pairings. Additionally, the restaurant is offering its “High Tide Breakfasts,” featuring a seasonal buffet on Oct. 29 and 30 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Nov. 26 and 27 from 7 to 10 a.m. and Dec. 10 and 11 from 7 to 10 a.m. Cost is $32 per person. For more information, call (858) 459-7222 or visit • The Shores Restaurant, also overseen by executive chef Bernard Guillas, is offering its Sip and Savor Dinner Series every night this fall. Diners can indulge in a themed menu designed by Guillas and chef de cuisine Amy DiBiase. During October, the menu features Oktoberfest-inspired dishes, while November will bring a Country Meadow Lamb pairing menu. Cost is $45 and includes wine pairings. For more information, call (858) 456-0600 or visit — Kendra Hartmann

Opera comes and goes in 1920s-era La Jolla Reflections Reflections

By Carol Olten

he greatest growth in culture and social sophistication in La Jolla’s early history took place in the 1920s when a new fashionable population with a heady interest in the arts came to town. Isabelle Hopkin’s new resort hotel, the Casa de Manana, became a gathering place for cultural evenings and soirees ranging from musical recitals to readings by the latest fashionable playwrights like Jean Girardoux. But the Casa, with its decorative salons and parlors, wasn’t the only trysting place for the elite set. Key to the new cultural scene as well were a series of miniature operas — “L’opera en Miniature” — presented by Edward Ewald starting in 1923 and, later, full-fledged operas staged under the supervision of a Polish countess, Laura de Turczynowicz. These productions marked the beginning of opera in La Jolla — a sure sign of the arrival of high society. Ewald’s miniature operas were a tour de force of theatrical staging, sound and light fireworks and audience enthrallment — all without the presence of singers or actors or their doll-like counterparts. His major prop was a replica of New York’s


Metropolitan Opera House stage built in miniature on a scale of four inches to six feet. The stage — all told about three feet tall — was draped with a crimson velvet curtain. At curtain time, Ewald drew from his outstanding collection of opera recordings and prepared to crank up the sound on some of the world’s greatest impresarios, using the latest orthophonic Victrola. Guests — obliged to wear proper evening opera attire — sat in front of the stage as lights were dimmed, the overture was played and the curtain was raised. Ewald’s aim was to interpret the operatic classics such as “Othello,” “La Boheme” and “Aida” with the greatest possible dramatic effects using his miniature, figureless setting. Aida’s royal barge came floating down the Nile with no representative person on it. For “La Boheme” the tiny shops in Paris’ Latin Quarter were shown stocked with wares as their windows lit up one by one as the evening darkened. With the music rising and falling in great crescendos and recessions as tiny scenes with vivid lighting were played out, the effects could be surreal, but seldom less than stirring. The first miniature opera took place in the Charles Kaltenbach home on Draper Avenue and was a great success. Ewald continued to

stage the productions for about four years before having to leave La Jolla to care for his widowed mother. When a private home wasn’t available, he once used a vacant store for a setting heated by an old stove. Opera lovers sat on hard chairs enthralled by the production, wrapped in their fur coats. The miniatures led to greater interest in opera with the formation of the first La Jolla opera company in 1924 with fullscale productions staged at different locations as the seasons progressed. Stages of both the La Jolla Woman’s Club and the old movie palace, the Granada at Girard Avenue and Wall Street, were used. Unlike the miniatures, which focused on traditional opera repertoire, the new opera company staged mostly light operettas such as Gilbert and Sullivan’s “The Pirates of Penzance” for three seasons between 1924 and 1926. Such was the

An old playbill from 1927 — the era when opera thrived in La Jolla — provides information for guests of Edward Ewald’s interpretation of Puccini’s “La Boheme.” Opera enjoyed brief popularity in the area until theatrical troupes like the Drury Lane Players and the summer playhouse captured people’s attention.

beginning and the end of opera productions in La Jolla — the 1920s was a progressive and fashionable era, but the art was buried in future decades as theatrical troupes such as the Drury Lane Players and summer playhouse (later La Jolla Playhouse) moved to the fore on the serious entertainment scene. Puccini’s dulcet ‘La Boheme” was heard no more. And the imaginative Mr. Ewald, with his tiny stages and majestic music, never returned.

Oldest Southern California Jewish congregation celebrates 150 years BY MARIKO LAMB | VILLAGE NEWS Congregation Beth Israel, Southern California’s oldest and largest Jewish congregation, is celebrating its landmark 150th anniversary this year with a host of events throughout the year including opening and closing celebrations, a speaker series, Torah project and special Jewish holiday events to commemorate the congregation’s milestone. The yearlong commemorative activities kicked off with an opening celebration on Sept. 18 at the temple, located at 9001 Towne Centre Drive. The celebration included notable community leaders such as Mayor Jerry Sanders, Rep. Brian Bilbray, Rep. Susan Davis and Rep. Bob Filner as well as special guests Craig Taubman, renowned Jewish musician, and Julie Seltzer, the congregation’s

scribe who will spend the coming year creating a new Torah scroll for the congregation. The opening celebration also included the launch of an endowment campaign to ensure the congregation’s success for another 150 years and more. “Beth Israel’s 150th anniversary presents a unique opportunity to stand on the shoulders of giants — those who had the courage to found and build our synagogue in 1861,” said Emily Jennewein, the congregation’s president. “It is our responsibility to continue their sacred work by securing the financial future of our synagogue for generations to come.” Future events at Congregation Beth Israel include a monthly speaker series beginning on Nov. 11, special 150th-themed holiday celebrations, a tour of the three temples the

congregation has occupied over the 150 years and a closing celebration in May featuring Tony Award-winning legend Mandy Patinkin. “Our congregation’s 150th anniversary is truly a momentous occasion,” said Senior Rabbi Michael Berk. “Those pioneers in 1861 set the stage for a thriving Jewish community in San Diego. They could not have imagined how many lives their efforts would eventually touch.” For more information about Congregation Beth Israel’s 150th anniversary events, visit For more information about the congregation, visit www.- Torah scribe Julie Seltzer helps Joshua Miller, grandson of George and Mary Ann Scher, as or call (858) 535- he symbolically writes a Hebrew letter in a new Torah for the Congregation Beth Israel, 1111.

with Vincent Andrunas The San Diego Symphony (SDS) opened its 101st season on Oct. 1. Crowds flocked to a stellar concert featuring two internationally acclaimed powerhouse performers: soprano Kathleen Battle and French pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet. About 400 enthusiastic supporters also attended all or part of one of the city’s most exciting, fun-filled gala evenings, enjoyable at several levels of participation. Rachel Grosvenor and her late husband, Judson, generously supported SDS for decades; their portrait hangs in Symphony Hall. The family remains deeply involved — son Craigar and his lovely wife, Joyce, have chaired the last three Opus galas, all highly entertaining, financially successful affairs. Joyce and daughter Dakota had returned from Paris when she heard the famed French pianist would open this year’s SDS season playing Fauré’s Piano Quartet #1 and Ravel’s Bolero, so she decided on a French theme for the black-tie gala, titling it “An Evening in Paris.”

And that it was! Festivities began with an elegant reception at the recently remodeled University Club atop Symphony Towers. Guests were greeted with champagne, wine, special “raspberry tart” cocktails and a sensual chanteuse. Deep-red roses and a huge ice Eiffel Tower accented the sophisticated red and black décor. Hors d’oeuvres were passed and suave models of both genders lounged about, lavishly bedecked in Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry. Dinner guests filled the venue’s capacity, enjoying consummate service, haute cuisine in four courses and the best panoramic views in town. The coq au vin was superb and the filet mignon couldn’t possibly have been better. Auctioneer Pierre Charmasson (joking that he’d been hired because of his name) sold five items. After dessert, guests journeyed via elevator to Symphony Hall for the concert. Staff and stars all performed flawlessly, earning an enthusiastic standing ovation. SDS has somehow managed to attract the finest talent while maintaining a balanced budget for 13 consecutive years. But the fun wasn’t over yet — not nearly! Post-concert, guests returned to the University Club where every alcove offered further festivities. A jazz trio performed in a red-draped room — until four costumed can-can dancers took over (oh là là!). A harpist played elsewhere and in the ballroom, a band played for dancing. French foods were everywhere: French-fries, toast, and -dip; croque monsieur; a table burdened with cheeses, charcuterie and terrines; and more. There were crepes, Napoléons, éclairs, truffles and many other desserts. Guests ate, drank and danced till after 1 a.m., and the event netted well over a halfmillion dollars for the symphony.


On Oct. 2, Mainly Mozart held another elegant concert and reception event for its most generous supporters. Most of these Club Amadeus events are held at beautiful private

homes, this one being a La Jolla residence with a fabulous ocean view. The weather was perfect and the 101 guests (this group is growing ever more popular!) enjoyed wine and champagne both indoors and out before taking seats on the sunny patio for the performance. Ida Levin (violin) came down from Los Angeles, while Julie Landsman (horn) and Reiko Aizawa (piano) flew in from New York. These superb musicians performed beautifully, playing pieces from Mozart and Brahms. Post-concert, Chef Ron McMillan and Catering Solutions served up copious hors d’oeuvres and desserts that were both tasty and visually attractive.


Rear Adm. William (“Bill”) French was the latest guest of honor in the Riford Center’s Distinguished Speaker Series. As commander of the Navy Region Southwest, he’s currently based in San Diego and is known as the “Navy mayor.” But the Pentagon recently announced he’s getting a third star (raising his rank to vice admiral), and in December he’ll relocate to Washington D.C. as leader of Navy Installations Command, covering all Navy regions. Despite his massive responsibilities, the admiral made time to give a detailed and enlightening presentation to a group of very interested listeners at the Riford. A skilled communicator and excellent speaker, he spoke of the Navy’s multipart mission and how technology will allow just over 300 ships to accomplish what was once expected to require 600 vessels. Visual aids also helped illustrate the Navy’s surprising advances in energy savings and waste reduction, and he gave clear, understandable answers to a number of complex questions from the audience. Guests sipped wine and enjoyed delicious taste treats from Sammy Ladecki’s Roppongi restaurant. County Supervisor Pam Slater Price will speak here on Dec. 8 with Walter Munk to follow early in 2012.

La Jolla Country Day Torrey football team tames Escondido Charter’s White Tigers Country Day carried to non-league victory by juniors Burmeister and McMahon BY ROB STONE | VILLAGE NEWS The La Jolla Country Day (LJCD) Torrey football team defeated the Escondido Charter White Tigers 42-3 in a non-league game played at Escondido Charter on Oct. 7. Country Day got on the scoreboard first on junior running back Sage Burmeister’s 19-yard touchdown run. That gave LJCD an early 7-0 firstquarter lead. Later in the first quarter, junior kicker Hunter Kildjian opened the scoring for the White Tigers when he sent a 26-yard field goal whistling through the uprights to trim the margin to 7-3. Unfortunately for Escondido Charter (0-5), that’s as close as they would get on this evening as Country Day (5-0) pulled away down the stretch to clinch the victory. Burmeister added three more touchdown runs of seven, four and 40 yards and junior running back Colin McMahon managed touchdown runs of 18 and six yards to seal it for LJCD.

LJHS varisty volleyball team digs in for charity again BY MARIKO LAMB | VILLAGE NEWS The La Jolla High School (LJHS) girls’ varsity volleyball team will host its second annual “Dig for the Cure” — a fundraising event to benefit a local San Diego breast cancer awareness foundation — in conjunction with Breast Cancer Awareness month and the team’s upcoming match against University City High School. The LJHS “Dig for the Cure” fundraiser idea evolved from senior Ryan Farley’s humanities project assignment in her English class two years ago. “I had begun to notice more and more high school teams, as well as many college volleyball teams, hosting ‘Dig for the Cure’ matches benefiting all different breast cancer organizations,” she said. “I really wanted it to be part of our La Jolla volleyball program, so along with the help of my teammates and coaches, last year was

our first ‘Dig for the Cure’ event.” Last year, the event raised $1,500 for breast cancer awareness and research efforts. The Vikings will take on the Centurions on Oct. 19 at 5 p.m. at LJHS. Following the match, LJHS will hold its annual senior night celebration and dinner with proceeds from T-shirt sales, baked goods sales and donations will benefit the breast cancer foundation. Farley said the match against University City is one of the team’s important Western League matches. Two weeks ago, the teams faced off in a close four-game match at University City High School. “We pulled out the win, but next Wednesday’s match will most definitely not be an easy one,” she said. La Jolla High School is located at 750 Nautilus St. For more information, contact LJHS program director Dave Jones at (858) 454-3081 or

MBHS water polo team looks to stand up to powerhouses in La Jolla

After suffering a tough one-goal loss during CIF postseason last year, the Mission Bay High School boys water polo team would love to score some redemption and prove that bigger isn’t always better. MBHS fields just 17 players in its program, while nearby powerhouses like The Bishop’s School and La Jolla High regularly trot out between 40 and 50. In his fifth season at the helm, Bucs head coach Troy Merkel isn’t making any excuses for his team’s uphill battle against numbers or against pool availability (the Bucs share a pool with Clairemont High). In fact, Merkel said having such a small group can actually help. “There’s an intimate relationship with a small group that can help with trust, camaraderie, giving it all and coming together as a unit,” Merkel said. “I think we understand each other more than some other teams.” MBHS is led by senior standout goalie Jacob Moreland. As the last line of defense, Moreland has excelled, often keeping his team close in games — despite being heavily outshot. “He brings a spunky attitude. I think the players will say he’s almost in his own world

which, as a goalie, is perfect for that position,” Merkel said of Moreland. “He’s very quick, agile and knowledgeable. His competitive nature makes him a beast in goal.” Moreland said his goal for the team is to get over the proverbial hump by winning a CIF playoff game this season. He said this would also help in his personal goal to continue playing water polo in college. The other standouts on the Bucs relatively young squad are seniors Brendan Daly and Mikey McClelland. Daly is cautiously optimistic this group can compete with anyone. “This year we have a pretty strong team. We have a lot of guys who like to get physical and play tough polo,” Daly said. “We don’t really have a weak person when we have are starting six in there.” McClelland, who serves as a captain, has battled injuries in each of the last two seasons but he said he is 100 percent healthy and he thinks his team can make some postseason noise. “This year, we want to win league like we did our freshman year, and hopefully win a CIF game because Mission Bay has never won a CIF game for water polo,” McClelland said. La Jolla schools may have a run for their money.
