La Jolla at forefront of reserves’ future BY CLAIRE HARLIN | VILLAGE NEWS Between the beaches of Windansea and Crystal Pier, extending three miles toward the depths of the Pacific, lies a marine wonder world. It’s been referred to as an “underwater Yosemite,” containing kelp forests as precious as endangered redwoods, a haven for hundreds of species. This proposed nine-square-mile Marine Protected Area (MPA) has the attention of stakeholders nationwide because it is one of three ocean areas in La Jolla that are up for review by the California Fish and Game Commission. The commission could decide this fall to entirely eradicate fishing in parts of those areas to comply with the 1999 Marine Life Protection Act, which requires the state to reevaluate and redesign California’s system of MPAs. The commission will hear public testimony on the issue at 10 a.m. on Oct. 20 at the Four Points Sheraton hotel, located at 8110 Aero Drive. “The world’s eyes are on this process,” said Kate Hanley, director of operations for Coastkeeper, an environmental advocacy organization. “People are looking into MPAs all over the world, and California could be a role model.” Also being considered in La Jolla is an area extending south from Scripps Pier to the projection between Casa Beach and La Jolla Cove, whose protection laws stand to be expanded from a “marine conservation area,” which allows

for some fishing, to a “marine reserve,” which allows for any kind of swimming, diving or boating but absolutely no extraction — fishing — of any kind. An area north of Scripps Pier is also being proposed as a “marine conservation area.” These designations are part of a plan called the Integrated Preferred Alternative (IPA). Created by a governor-appointed, seven-member blue ribbon task force (BRTF), the plan is a “compromise” of three different proposals produced by a 60-member stakeholder group that includes experts, municipalities, fishermen and environmentalists. A science advisory team (SAT) worked with the task force and stakeholder group throughout the process, with the purpose of providing scientific recommendations and identifying which areas would be best to protect in order to save ecosystems in their entirety. In drawing proposed boundaries of protected areas, Hanley said the science advisory team suggested that a properly functioning ecosystem needs at least nine square miles to operate, free of extraction. For example, she said that’s the amount of space needed for fish to become large enough to reproduce to their full potential. The area south of La Jolla is currently protected up to seven square miles, so the IPA would extend those boundaries two more miles. While environmentalists say the

Author writes about his intrigue with San Diego’s ‘main attraction’ BY CLAIRE HARLIN | VILLAGE NEWS To Olivier Dalle, La Jolla is somewhat of a paradoxical place. “It’s a place that is so wealthy and so elegant, but it also feels like home,” Dalle said of La Jolla, which he profiles in his new book “La Jolla/92037.” Dalle will discuss and sign the release today at Warwick’s, located at 7812 Girard Ave. The book is the first of a series of coffeetable books written by Dalle and photographed by Paul Burlingame, chronicling different ZIP codes in the San Diego region. Dalle, a French professor at Palomar College, fell in love with La Jolla when he moved from Paris to the Windansea area seven years ago. He spent four years researching the community, meeting notable La Jollans and experiencing local businesses and landmarks. The final product is a series of photos, facts and 37 poetry-like tales bound by a single black cover and adorned with a delicate lavender-colored skyline of rooftops and palm trees. The number “37” is inscribed on the left corner, representing not only the last digits of La Jolla’s ZIP code but the average age of people living in the SEE 92037, Page 6 TOP: Peter Schumaker stands outside his café, the Brick & Bell, located at 928 Silverado St. MIDDLE: A woman smokes a hookah at Living Room Coffee, located at 1010 Prospect St. BOTTOM: Palm trees are jostled during a storm at La Jolla Cove.

California’s education budget woes loom Educators, parents mull effectiveness of Prop J BY LAUREN VENTURA | VILLAGE NEWS

University City High School, parents, educators and administrators met Oct. 7 for a San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) town hall meeting to discuss the looming state budget crisis, how it could affect schools and how possibly to fix it. Audience members and trustees appeared to grow weary as it was made clear time and again that this year marks the

fifth year San Diego has been forced to make budget cuts for its public schools. Cuts for the 2010-11 budget year are estimated to be around $141.6 million. “We’re trying to balance the core of our academic goals with the harsh realities of this crisis,” SDUSD Superintendent Bill Kowba said. Kowba presented the before-and-after numbers, showing that in 2007 each student was allocated $5,787 per year. For the 2010-11 budget period, that number declined to $4,957. “There’s limited options left over,” said Kowba. “The only options left are massive teacher and certificated staff layoffs. We have a convergence of a number of things happening SEE SCHOOL, Page 4

move would make La Jolla even more of a hot spot for diving, a multibillion-dollar industry, stakeholders on a different side of the multifaceted argument say it would hurt another multi-billion dollar industry — sport fishing. Bob Brown is a spokesman for the Southern California Marine Association, one of the 60 stakeholders who presented proposals to the BRTF. He said there are challenges to interpreting the scientific recommendations at play and the IPA that the task force came up with is a “concoction” that doesn’t accurately represent stakeholders’ proposals. “They call it making sausage,” he said. “There’s been a lot of discussion with the stakeholders, a lot of volunteer hours put in, but nobody was listening.” If the IPA is accepted, he said, there will be a congestion of anglers in a very small area, which will present safety issues and “cause more harm than good.” Brown said he foresees the issue becoming law because he thinks it’s high on state officials’ to-do list. He said Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger wants to “get this done before he leaves office.” “It looks like there’s this crusade to get things done in an unreasonable amount of time,” said Brown. “And there’s no compromise thats that’s going to make everyone happy.” Paul Lebowitz, editor of Kayak Angler Magazine and a spokesman for the Kayak Fishing Association of California, was also involved in stakeholder meetings to fight for the interests of kayak fishermen, who he said are already low on options when it comes to practicing their sport. Lebowitz, a San Diegan who’s been kayaking in La Jolla for years, said La Jolla Shores is not only the busiest launch spot in the world for kayak fishermen, but one of only three spots along the California coast where kayakers can

safely get on the water without dangerous winds. The other two locations are Malibu and Dana Point. While he said the IPA is somewhat of a compromise — environmental stakeholders, he said, would shut fishers entirely out of La Jolla if they had their way — there are some safety issues that would arise if MPAs are expanded. Right now, kayak fishers in La Jolla paddle out a half-mile to fish outside the reserve, and if the IPA is enacted they will have to paddle out twothirds of a mile. Lebowitz is not only concerned this would cram fishers close together, but having to paddle farther out may cause novice kayak fishers to get swept up in dangerous currents, making it hard to get back to shore. “People just getting in to this sport may not have the skill, strength or judgment to know when to be careful,” he said. Lebowitz said there is no provision in the proposal that would require replacement of signs and buoys that indicate boundaries, and that may be something the city or private entities will have to fund. Lebowitz said he can’t speculate as to how things will turn out for kayakers.

“I just know that most of the time this issue has been portrayed as the environmentalists versus the fisherman,” he said. “But the issue is so much more complex than that.” Earlier this month, a California Superior Court judge issued a ruling stating that the BRTF and SAT are state agencies and therefore subject to state open records laws. The court said those entities had been working behind closed doors and must share information with angling and conservation groups. The ruling was in response to a lawsuit filed on by Robert C. Fletcher, former president of the Sportfishing Association of California, who had requested records of the decision-making process. Some stakeholders are predicting a push at the Oct. 20 hearing to invalidate all BRTF decisions thus far. After MPA boundaries are drawn in Southern California, hearings on proposed areas in Northern California will begin. Stakeholders say Southern California is the most controversial because it is the most used, and other regions in the state may look to this region as a precedent for decision-making.

NEWS Summer not-so-hot for Coggan pool BY CLAIRE HARLIN | VILLAGE NEWS It was a tough summer for the Coggan pool, located at 800 Nautilus St. — because summer never really arrived. “When you rely on warm weather and families coming to the pool, this was not our best year,” said Randy Franke, aquatic director for the Coggan Family Aquatic Complex, a privately-run entity that’s open to the public and provides pool services for La Jolla High School. “Attendance and swim lessons were down, and it’s hard to say if that’s due to the economy or the weather or a combination of both.” The complex is hoping for sun on Oct. 17, when it will hold its ninth annual Splash Bash, the only fundraiser the pool hosts to help defray its operating costs. This year, the goal of the La Jolla Aquatic Complex Foundation is to raise $50,000 to offset losses in revenue brought on by low attendance, as well as needed pool repairs. In June, California enacted new safety measures outlined in the Virginia Graeme Baker Act that required the pool’s drain covers to be replaced. The cost of repairs totaled about $22,000, said Franke, in addition to loss of revenue that came along with having to close the pool for a week and a half. Organizers expect 600 to 700 people to turn out for the Oct. 17 event, which will feature a hula hoop contest, relay races and a “swim-a-thon,” in which participants collect pledges

CONTINUED FROM Page 1 and none of them are good.” Kowba said his main concern was the expiration of the federal stimulus package this coming June, which he claims funds 400 teaching positions. Solutions presented to close the budget gap were: close ten low-enrollment schools, restructure K-8 schools, increase K-3 class size to a ratio of 29:1, implement halfdays for kindergarten and cut several arts and sports programs, among other options. Kowba said much of the exact affects of this shortfall were due to several unresolved issues out of Sacramento. One problem is that funding from Prop 98, a 22-year-old measure passed by voters to protect education, will most likely be suspended again, a dilemma that shorts San Diego Unified schools $200 million in owned grant money this year, said Kowba. Bernie Rhinerson, chief SDUSD relations officer, said the best possible solution San Diego Unified has is Proposition J, the proposed parcel tax on the Nov. 2 ballot. Rhinerson outlined Prop J’s language during the town hall meeting but made it clear that his intent was not to “sway voters one way or the other,” but merely to educate. The measure is an emergency teacher retention and classroom education measure. If passed by a two-thirds vote on Nov. 2, the proposition allows San Diego schools to levy a temporary five-year annual parcel tax of $98 per single family, $60 per unit for multi-family homes and $450 for commercial or industrial parcels. After administrators spoke during the town hall forum, attendees were asked to form groups aimed at to addressing several local concerns regarding student achievement and how to address the budget crisis at a local level. The discussion became heated as teachers and parents clashed over how to address budget shortfalls.

NEWS “We need to cut the red tape and see how other districts allocate funds from donations. And what about on-campus advertising? Can we readdress that?” asked one University City parent. Ideas ran the gamut, from having children be part of more fundraising initiatives like joga-thons and bake sales, to educating students about Prop J, asking them to knock on doors and campaign for its passage. As presentations for solutions were presented, a common chorus was heard from parents bemoaning the disconnect between union rules and the need for more school volunteers. “We need to balance labor rules so that volunteerism and teachers can come to an equitable agreement,” said Dolores Donovan, La Jolla High School parent. Donovan, a former labor attorney who now teaches law at the University of San Francisco, was a proponent of bringing retirees into the classroom to help provide faltering schools with free educators. Mike Price, area superintendent, also seemed to favor the notion of more community involvement. “We need parents to be engaged and support learning through volunteering,” said Price. “We need parents and teachers to work handin-hand tutoring, being classroom aids — not just raising money.” Although the idea of bringing in outside volunteers was popular with parents, educators were quick to point out that having only certificated teachers in the classroom, or those who are working on a teaching certification, is a protective measure that cannot be broken. The California credentialing process requires background checks and fingerprinting scans to protect children; if volunteers were brought into the classroom without these safeguards it could be disastrous. In addition, several teachers noted it was unlawful for free labor to be brought in, as that would break labor union rules. One idea that parents and educators agreed

La Jolla Cove inches closer to new lifeguard tower Proposed concept would provide handicap access BY CLAIRE HARLIN | VILLAGE NEWS The La Jolla Community Planning Association (LJCPA) conceptually approved plans for a new handicap-accessible La Jolla Cove lifeguard station at its monthly meeting Oct. 7. But the decision was not made without opposition. Twelve trustees voted in favor of the concept — meaning the city of San Diego has not yet applied for permits to move forward with construction. Four LJCPA board members opposed the item and two abstained. The plan, presented by architect Rick Espana, of Roesling Nakamura Terada Architects, and city project manager Jihad Sleiman, would add an accessible ramp from the street level to the midlevel viewing deck to comply with requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act. In addition, the lifeguard tower would be replaced with one that is two feet taller and levering off the bluff, as opposed to the current observation tower that is supported by stilts. Questions were raised that the proposed plan would not provide handicap access to the beach itself. Several members suggested that architects take into consideration the possible need for an elevator in the future. As it stands, elevator access to the beach is not a legal mandate. But concerns arose about the possibility that years down the line SEE STATION, Page 7

hich would you rather save: your pride, space, money, or planet? You can save all that and more just by recycling your e-waste.

Consumer electronics constitute one of the fastest-growing waste streams around the world. In 2007, more than 40 million computers became obsolete, and discarded TVs, computers, peripherals (including printers, scanners, faxes), mice, keyboards and cell phones totaled about 2.25 million short tons of hazardous waste. Only 18% (414,000 tons) was collected for recycling, whereas 82% (1.84 million tons) was disposed of, primarily in landfills. Electronics are complex devices made of a wide variety of material constituents, some of which—such as lead, nickel, cadmium and mercury— are hazardous materials that could pose risks to human health or the environment if mismanaged at their end-of-life. Do you know the four characteristics of hazardous waste? Toxicity, reactivity, ignitability, and corrosivity. (It’s poisonous, explosive, flammable, and/or can eat through flesh and bone. That’s what all the fuss is about.) Even worse, much of the “e-waste” that people throw away every day isn’t actually waste, but it is being wasted. “Obsolete” devices, equipment and parts are easily marketable for reuse or can be recycled for materials recovery. All electronics are made from valuable resources and highly engineered materials—including common and precious metals, plastics, and glass—all of which require energy to mine and manufacture. Conserving natural resources avoids air and water pollution, as well as greenhouse gas emissions caused by manufacturing virgin materials. For example: Recycling one million laptops saves the energy equivalent to the electricity used by 3,657 U.S. homes in a year. One metric ton of circuit boards can contain 40 to 800 times the concentrations of gold ore, and 30 to 40 times the concentration of copper ore, mined in the U.S. For every million cell phones we recycle, we can recover 35,274 pounds of copper, 772 pounds of silver, 75 pounds of gold, and 33 pounds of palladium. In 2009 alone an estimated 15.3 million cell phones were sold in California, but only 4.1 million were reported as turned in for recycling. And what about the social benefits of recycling cell phones and accessories? If they’re in good working condition, some collection programs donate them to worthy charities or provide them for sale. Some programs use the proceeds to benefit charitable organizations, such as domestic violence, environmental causes, and children’s safety. Others work to collect cell phones with schools and youth organizations as fundraising ventures. The principal markets for refurbished cell phones extend to people in developing economies who couldn’t otherwise afford such technology. Recycling isn’t just a good idea; it’s the law. According to California’s Department of Toxic Substances Control, “Abandonment of e-waste constitutes illegal disposal of hazardous waste and will be prosecuted.” So do the right thing—for all the right reasons!

Need a local solution? Think Recycle San Diego! We host household e-waste collection events every weekend and offer on-site business pick-ups during the week.

It’s a mixed bag for the future of our ocean’s health Pesky plastic bags still not sacked BY JUDITH LEA GARFIELD I was beyond disappointed when our senators in Sacramento sacked the bill calling for a statewide ban on singleuse plastic bags. The bill was intended to reduce already-unmanageable plastic waste by choosing a form of plastic that is, let’s face it, unnecessary. First introduced in 1977 as an alternative to paper bags, plastic bags now account for 80 percent of all bagged groceries. They are difficult to recycle for the same reason they are convenient: so light they fly out of curbside recycling bins (often lacking lids). Even if the bags make it to a recycling plant, they too often wrap themselves around machinery, gumming it up. That’s why most curbside recycling programs don’t accept them. Charging for single-use bags would motivate shoppers to bring their own bags or remind those who have them not to forget them. This change would boost the

pace of weaning consumers off this blight on wildlife, the ocean and the landscape. How on Earth could this bill — supported by an overwhelming alliance of business, environmental, and community groups — fail to pass? Voice your gratitude to the American Chemistry Council (ACC), a petrochemical industry and plastic lobbying group that reportedly provided campaign contributions to a number of California senators. The ACC is so well organized, it even set up a phony department dedicated to this misguided cause: Progressive Bag Affiliates (PBA). The following quotes from their website raised more questions of my own (in brackets). PBA purports to “... create positive change in our communities by promoting the increased recycling of plastic bags as well as their proper use [Don’t you just put stuff in them, stuff that can go in any reusable bag, which would not require recycling or become trash?], reuse [Seems seriously unrealistic since Environmental Protection Agency research has shown that only 1 percent of plastic bags get recycled.],

It took less than a minute to spot a wayward singe-use plastic bag for this article’s image. Though CVS and the customer may have had the best intentions, if the former didn’t hand them out and the latter brought a reusable bag, we wouldn’t have a problem. © 2010 JUDITH LEA GARFIELD

and disposal [So the onus is on the consumer to fully prevent the light-asa-feather bags to be, for example, blown hither and yon by the wind despite that they were responsibly placed in a recycling receptacle?]. We recognize that more can be done to address environmental concerns [Why not instead focus energy on improving meaningful plastic products like bike helmets and prostheses?].

in the Village. He chronicles a successful realtor who’s been blind for four decades and interviews the “surfing pioneers” of Windansea. He mentions Bird Rock’s mysterious Maitre D’ restaurant, located at 5523 La Jolla Blvd., which he calls “one of the best-kept secrets of San Diego,” and highlights Pannikin Coffee & Tea, a place where he said he feels at home — where “people seem to come right from bed to the café.” Amanda Morrow, one of Pannikin’s owners, said she loves the way Dalle uses statistics to make his book unique, with several pages that tell stories through numbers. “It’s not just pretty photos,” said Mor-

Issa, who worked with computers at the University of California, San Diego, had been free on $20,000 bond when his jury reached a verdict Oct. 6. San Diego Superior Court Judge Joseph Brannigan waited several hours for Issa to show up, but the verdict was read in absentia after his attorney said he did not know where Issa was. Issa was convicted of assault with a deadly weapon upon a former friend, Michael Serrato, 29, who received a 5-inch slash across his face in Hillcrest on July 11, 2008. The jury acquitted Issa of making a death threat against Serrato, who received 28 stitches to his face at an emergency room to close the wound. On Monday, Sheriff ’s Sgt. Russell Moore of the Fugitive Task Force said authorities believe Issa has fled to Nevada where his parents live.

said Dalle. “It’s a metropolitan area including Tijuana.” He considers La Jolla to be “the main attraction of San Diego,” yet interestingly contradictive. “There’s a weirdness of living in a place that’s like paradise,” said Dalle, who has traveled much of the world and published several books about Cairo and Beirut. “Everything seems perfect, and it is perfect. But it’s also a crazy place. People have this craziness in them.” But he doesn’t mean “crazy” in a derogatory way. For people living in La Jolla, Dalle said, “its so nice — where can you go after that?

EVENTS Spike & Mike opens Oct. 16


Spike & Mike Animation has gained worldwide notoriety for its “Sick & Twisted” festival, and “A New Generation of Spike & Mike Animation” came to fruition when Craig “Spike” Decker compiled film submissions that were outstanding, but didn’t fit into the “Sick & Twisted” category. This year’s production opens Oct. 16 at La Jolla’s Museum of Contemporary Art. A compilation of 21 films chosen from more than 500 submissions, the 90minute family-friendly production features filmmakers from all over the world. — Claire Harlin



CONTINUED FROM Page 4 legal requirements may change. Sleiman said the proposed plan is in compliance with ADA standards and that it is not feasible to provide handicap access to the beach for reasons like tide fluctuation. Board member Gregory Scott Salmon asked Espana and Sleiman if they have presented plans to diving and swimming groups who use the cove on a frequent — if not daily — basis. The pair said they have not. However, they said they have explained the project to people using the cove who they’ve encountered while making plans at the site. Sleiman said the plans so far have been well received. Salmon suggested the planners post details of the project proposal on the glass-covered community information board near the lifeguard station.

Salmon voted against the measure. “It’s too early to have these concepts without talking to these groups,” said Salmon, a La Jollan who once worked as a lifeguard. “It would be so easy for the city to talk to these groups. I don’t understand why they don’t.” Board member Laura Ducharme Conboy, a local architect, countered Salmon’s argument, stressing that the purpose of the project is to make the cove’s viewing deck and lifeguard station handicap-accessible — an aspect of the plan that doesn’t apply to divers and swimmers. Orrin Gabsch voted against the concept because it is only that — a concept. “We need to approve something that’s more defined,” he said. On Oct. 8, LJCPA Board President Joe LaCava posted plans of the proposed lifeguard station near the site of the current tower, as per the wishes of trustees.

The Loft meets and exceeds its lofty goals In second year of operation, campus venue serves up increasingly age-friendly options BY LAUREN VENTURA | VILLAGE NEWS In September 2008, the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) opened The Loft, an urban-esque, oncampus venue with the hope it would encapsulate the university spirit while also lending its students a muchdeserved space to relax and enjoy upand-coming artists and musicians. That goal has been met — and more are being formulated all the time. Today, although the venue is still growing, changing and morphing, it’s becoming not only a place for students, but also a true fixture of the La Jolla community at large. “It’s amazing that on any given night we could have a high schooler from La Jolla High, a freshman from UCSD or a 50-year-old-plus attendee here for ArtPower shows,” said Elizabeth Bradshaw, The Loft’s curator. With its funky, yet surprisingly modern décor — conjured by San Diego’s Bells & Whistles design firm — it’s no surprise that the venue attracts not only 20-something hipsters looking to scope out emerging bands, but also seasoned art connoisseurs. “During the initial design process, it was really clear to everyone that the space at The Loft shouldn’t be institutionalized,” said Amy Thomas, marketing director for The Loft. “It was apparent students wanted the design to have a ‘vibe’ — not the atmosphere of a study hall.”

Tonight at The Loft, UCSD’s Price Center East, 4th floor: • Meklit Hadero When: 8 p.m., on Thursday, Oct. 14 What: Meklit Hadero is jazz musician and songstress who was born in Ethiopia, raised in the U.S. and now hails from San Francisco. “Hadero breathes a fresh, urgent, and worldly spirit into jazz. The result is a transformative musical experience,” said event organizers. Cost: UCSD students pay $5. Regular admission is $26. UCSD Alumni receive 15 percent off.

Each aspect of the space’s layout appears to have relied heavily upon this input. The seating, besides that of benches, is not static, lending it the feel of an urban café during the day and a swanky restaurant/bar at night. Zanzibar, the restaurant adjoing The Loft, also employs the same modernistic design elements as the venue. It came on board last October and has been doing its best to bring The Loft even more success. Owner of Zanzibar, Carole Janks, said the decision by UCSD to bring Zanzibar on campus was a dream come true. “When we first applied to be a part of The Loft project, we’d didn’t think we’d get it. When we did, I was so sur-

UCSD’s The Loft offers students and residents alike a one-of-a-kind venue to absorb the sights and sounds of emerging or established art and music. PAUL HANSEN | Village News

prised,” said Janks. “I was an art major in college, so to be able to merge my business with the arts, food and wine was really ideal.” Janks feels Zanzibar’s creative take on food — a concept she coins “simply elevated” — is what keeps people of all ages enamored with the restaurant. Much of what UCSD offers students is run-of-the-mill fast food, but Zanzibar offers fresh options at affordable pricing, and it’s been a fixture of the San Diego community for more than 19 years. Janks feels it’s this combination that gives her the insight as to what works best for locals. Despite its finalization took almost a year to conceive, the long labor to receive the beer and wine licensing

paid off, and Zanzibar has helped draw even more students and locals who are 21 and over, making the space more accessible to all ages. “Before the introduction of the bar, we had about 70 percent students, and 30 percent off-campus attendees, now — with the bar — it’s more half-andhalf,” explained Bradshaw. Beyond its first-rate food, wine, music and art selections, The Loft is hosting its first comedy night, “LOL: Laugh Out Loft,” on Oct. 12 featuring a range of comedians from “Last Comic Standing” and UCSD alumnus. Also, anyone can rent space in The Loft for birthdays, anniversaries, or any other event, which both Thomas and Bradshaw claim has been a great opportunity to connect with the local community and get the word out about the creative affairs happening at The Loft. This year also marks The Loft’s launch of a membership program designed to help ease the reality of dwindling funding. This new annual membership program allows current UCSD students to pay for $25 for almost all Loft events, while non-students can pay $75 for 20 percent off

all tickets, plus members-only perks such as meet-and-greets with artists and priority on-sale tickets. The curators at The Loft work hard to provide a wide range of unique shows. One might be hard-pressed to not find something interesting throughout its season. From local San Diego Music Award winners to Canadian folksingers, jazz quartets, chamber music and art and even “Bitchy Bingo,” The Loft aims to please all ages while still maintaining an edge, enticing visitors to take chance by getting out of their artistic comfort zone. “The Loft really acts as a vehicle to provide students with the ability to explore various types of performances and genres that they may not be able to see elsewhere,” Bradshaw said. “We are really the only event of our kind in all of San Diego that has beer and wine, welcomes all-ages, has art shows, music and comedy in one spot every week.” For ticket information, call (858) 534-TIXS, or visit categories/loft for more event details, to purchase tickets in advance, get directions and find parking information.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2010 | VOL. 16, NO. 5

Longtime fashionista opens up about her life and career BY LAUREN VENTURA | VILLAGE NEWS Last year, Ollie McNamara, now 82, quietly wrote and published the book “Fashion Diva: My Life, Lessons and Loves,” which chronicled her life as a buyer for Saks Fifth Avenue. In it, McNamara, a Cornell graduate, revealed the ins-and-outs of the fashion world, a world that was dominated during that time by men, and tells how she eventually worked her way from the bottom up — a feat that wasn’t easy. “I remember asking my boss at the time if I could apply for the merchandizing manager position and he said, ‘Ollie, face it — That’ll never happen. This is a man’s world,’” McNamara said. “Well, was he wrong. Times have changed. Now there are lots of women in positions like that.” Despite the sexist climate of the time, McNamara never lost her edge, and soon become a valued member of the fashion scene in New York City. But as time marched on, she decided to leave the hullabaloo of the Big Apple after the birth of her daughter and open her own store. After successfully launching a 10,000-square-foot pilot store in Phoenix, McNamara opened Capriccio in La Jolla. Although it’s presence no longer graces La Jolla Boulevard, the store was the first of its kind here and sold upscale, designer clothing for over 20 years. One could say McNamara led the way in terms of creating what’s now the determining feature of La Jolla’s downtown retail: a one-stop-shop for one-of-a-kind, high-end boutiques. Although she has since retired from the world of retail, McNamara is still deeply involved in her community. “I love to take the time to talk to young girls in the area who are starting to go into the fashion industry. I’ll be speaking with a class at the Fashion Institute soon and I’m really looking forward to it,” McNamara said. And if you’re not a Fashion Institute student, but would like to hear her stories sooner, visit The Riford Center at 6811 La Jolla Boulevard on Oct. 21 at 5 p.m., where McNamara will be speaking exclusively. The engagement will cost $5 for non-members, and will be free for members. For more information, visit

Exhibit offers multi-media collages, computer-driven video BY WILL BOWEN | VILLAGE NEWS

One of the panels in “Deep Horizons,” a panorama reminiscent of a mythological California coastal doomsday, by Hans Weigand. WILL BOWEN | Village News

The University Art Gallery at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) opened its 2010-11 season with a wild and wacky art exhibition by Austrian-born artist Hans Weigand. The show, called “Deep Water Horizons,” consists of an exhibition of eight large 5-footby-10-foot, layered multi-media painting collages, which are hung from the ceiling inward-facing in an octagonal pattern in the center of the main gallery space; and a back gallery computer-driven video presentation which you may interact with. In the main gallery, patrons must walk between the hanging canvases and then do an aboutface to view an almost circular panorama of odd and unusual

paintings that are meant to fit together. The theme of the panorama is a mythological California coastal doomsday, along the lines of the “Planet of the Apes” movie series, in which the earth is destroyed and the only things left are wrecked bridges, broken oil rigs, Greek temples, apes, baboons, surfers (who do not mind because there is still surf) and RV users. The video exhibition in the back room, called “Private View, 2005,” consists of a large-format video projection of another panorama in the form of a personalized narrative of the places and people who have been important in Weigand’s life. Patrons use a computer mouse on a table in the room to scroll from the mountains down to the city, through and around buildings, and over people. At certain points on

the panorama it is possible to click the mouse — and a window opens up to play a short related video. When the window opens, German heavy metal or punk rock music begins to play on a set of headphones you may elect to wear. There are actually four different interactive video projections, which are rotated throughout the day. Weigand, who was born in Tyrol, Austria, and educated at the Academy of Applied Art in Vienna, is a product of the pop, trash, sci-fi, and psychedelic movements. He is considered to be one of Austria’s most dazzling, multi-faceted, interactive and well-known artists. Weigand likes to weave “... many thematic threads together … using the montage technique … to tread SEE HANS, Page 13

Starry, starry nights

with Vincent Andrunas Ramin Pourteymour recently hosted Mainly Mozart’s elite donor group, Club Amadeus, at his modernistic La Jolla Farms abode. Arriving guests enjoyed champagne, congenial conversation, warm weather and beautiful views of the estate. Most took care to place their name cards on seats on the shady side of the tennis court, where they later enjoyed a concert featuring Los Angeles Philharmonic concertmaster Martin Chalifour on violin and renowned musician Dana Burnett on piano. They played a variety of selections, including — of course — some Mozart. Afterward, the music lovers savored wines, appetizers and desserts. ••• Friends and supporters of Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego enjoyed a hearty “ROMP!” at the gala of the same name, atop the group’s San Diego facility (which, since its expansion to 47 units, is the biggest Ronald McDonald House in the world). The facility provides more than just lodging; it’s really a home away from home for families with seriously-ill children being treated at San Diego area hospitals. Amazingly, 20,000 families a year use the facilities at some level or other. Mary Drake chaired the fundraiser, which began with a reception featur-

ing fun foods like little corn dogs, fried sea bass and turkey meatballs. The dress was “playground chic,” which allowed broad interpretation — from tuxedos and evening gowns to jeans and sneakers (and everything between). A Kabuki curtain opened at 7:30 p.m., revealing a dining area decorated with tiny lights, brightly colored fresh flowers, lollipops and candy necklaces. A father told the poignant story of a seven-month stay at the Ronald McDonald House with his wife and terminally-ill son. Guests learned that 10 percent of the annual budget comes from McDonald’s restaurants; the rest from donations and fundraisers. A live auction offered exciting items (including a goldendoodle puppy), and a truly delicious dinner was served. Entertainment was stellar — The Guadalajara-based musical duo L’Orpheus (tenor Jorge Jimenez and violinist Gerardo Ponce) played near dinner’s end, and multiple-Grammy winner Vikki Carr donated her time to perform. She sang with the band, spoke with the crowd between numbers, did an a capella number or two and even an impromptu duet with tenor Jimenez. The event was very successful, and officials announced that the entry will be renamed “The Mary and Hudson Drake Entrance to the Ronald McDonald House.” ••• Ever-generous Joan Waitt hosted yet another fundraiser at her fabulous La Jolla estate. It was a benefit for Hospital Infantil de las Californias (HIC), just a half-mile south of the international border, which has provided essential medical care for the neediest children on both sides of our border

since 1994. A gigantic tent, erected to ward off threatened rain, ensured everyone’s comfort. Inside was a huge silent auction, dinner seating and a full stage. Reception fare included mini-burgers, tasty crab cakes and tequila shots, preceding a full sit-down dinner. John Moores, personally and through the Padres, has been the hospital’s biggest benefactor. He bid $25,000 for a $500 wine basket at Steve Hammon’s live auction, and later gave another $25,000 when pledges were called for. Numerous other generous bids and pledges came from the 375 guests, making this fundraiser an exceptional financial success. Famed singer-songwriter Emmylou Harris performed, making the event a great entertainment success as well. She’d never done a private event in San Diego before, but played her heart out for nearly 90 minutes in this intimate setting.

CONTINUED FROM Page 11 a path of confrontation … using a good deal of black humor.” Weigand said there are three basic steps in the construction of his paintings for this exhibit. First, he constructed a backdrop of night and day abstract images and atmospheres. Then he layered in a large scale computer-generated montage of photographs, primarily of the California seascape, to which he added a layer of bizarre architectural and environmental details which are like the flotsam and jetsam of an enormous data tsunami. Finally, he hand-painted on a layer of dark smears and smudges which he says is a form of “revenge.” Taken together, he sought to create a “maelstrom of overwhelm and a flood of digital data,” which is meant to be a critique of popular culture. The University Arts Gallery is a small gallery that puts on three or four main shows a year, plus the UCSD MFA Exhibition. In conjunction with the shows, there are usually speakers and films. Usually the artists are people you would not normally get a chance to see in this area. Due to the economic crisis, the university plans to cut funding to the University Art Gallery next year. In order to stay open, the gallery is looking for alternative sources of support and trying to solidify a donor base. If you would like to help, call the gallery director at (858) 534-0419. For further information about the gallery, see or call (858) 534-2107.

Hair Loss For Women Judy Judy Judy Hair Studio According to the Womens Institute for Fine and Thinning Hair, there are 30 million women who are currently experiencing hair loss. It can begin as early as puberty, although it usually occurs between 35 and 55 years of age. In the past several years effective treatments have become available for fine thinning hair. Professional hair loss products are most effective when, used at the first signs of

thinning or hair loss. The treatments, consist of a personalized treatment program once a week for three months. The treatment slows down hair loss and strengthens the hair when it is weakened, anemic, or falls out excessively. The anti-hair loss treatments stimulate cell renewal and strengthens hair bulb and shaft. The hour long treatment consists of preparing the scalp with a stimulating massage using essential oils of orange, lavender, and verbina. This prepares the scalp for the anti-hair loss products.

Putting Home Care in Perspective We are seeing a trend towards working conditions like those in urban America in the early 1900’s where both husband and wife are working and putting in longer hours. We are also seeing a return of the trend in the early part of the 20th century where outside visitor caregivers are becoming available to replace working caregiver’s and allow the elderly to receive long-term care in their homes. Most of those receiving long-term care and most caregivers prefer a home environment. Given a choice people prefer their home over the unfamiliar prospect of living in a care facility. Those needing care feel comfortable and secure

LA JOLLA LIVING MIND, BODY & SOUL H&B CONTINUED FROM Page 14 in familiar surroundings and a home is usually the best setting for that support especially one on one care from another. For many long-term care recipients the home is an ideal environment. These people may be confined to the home but continue to lead active lives engaging in church service, entertaining grandchildren, writing histories, corresponding, pursuing hobbies or doing handwork activities. Their care needs might not be that demanding and might include occasional help with house cleaning and shopping as well as help with getting out of bed, dressing and bathing. Most of the time elders don’t need the supervision of a 24/7 caregiver. To help assess the needs of your elder parents or yourself, call the RN Case Managers at Innovative Healthcare Consultants. They are experts in geriatrics and can offer invaluable suggestions. Our caregivers are experienced, bonded and insured. Call us at 877-731-1442 or see our website at

The Full Monty... "Girls Night Out" at the Welk Resort Theatre “Seeing how much their wives enjoy watching male strippers during their "Girls' Night Out," unemployed steelworkers in Buffalo, New York come up with a bold way to make some

quick cash. In the process they find renewed self-esteem, the importance of friendship and the ability to have fun. As the guys work through their fears, self-consciousness, feelings of worthlessness and anxieties (over everything from being overweight to child custody, bigotry to being gay), they come to discover that not only are they stronger as a group, but that the strength they find in each other gives them the individual courage to face their demons and overcome them. There is great heart to THE FULL MONTY, and the ultimate themes expressed in the show, about taking charge of one's life and following one's dreams are great lessons for all of us. And truth be told, through creative directing and staging, the final impact of "The Full Monty" can be achieved without ever losing your jockey shorts! The Welk Theatre rates this one a strong PG-17 (even with some cleaned up language) and very brief nudity – The Welk does not recommend this show for children under 17 years old. Director Nick DeGruccio and Choreographer Ray Limon team up for the first time and it promises to be spectacular! The Welk hopes to attract some new audience with this musical, and wants not to offend those who are more traditional musical theatre fans. Monty runs Sept 9 – October 17 with 1pm matinee performances on Wed/Thurs/Sat/Sun and evening shows Thurs/Sat. Call the box office at (888) 802-SHOW for tickets – ask about how you can receive a $500 Carnival Cruises Gift Card.



Thinking outside the box Amy Solis, a student at California State University, Long Beach, exhibits a three-dimensional work of art called “Peak in” at the second-annual La Jolla Art and Wine Festival (LJAWF), which took place Oct. 9 and 10 on Girard Avenue. Made in 2009 of paper pulp, wire mesh, yarn and thread, the interactive piece is meant to be touched by spectators. For this year’s festival, a team of prestigious artist jurors — handpicked by LJAWF’s organizers from universities and museums around the country — used a strict process of elimination to choose which artists would be featured at the event. Out of the more than 250 emerging and established artists who applied, only about 150 were selected. PAUL HANSEN | Village News

La Jollan featured in book about near-death experiences BY LAUREN VENTURA | VILLAGE NEWS

When Marisa Vallbona of La Jolla was just 19, she was involved in a horrible accident. Vallbona was hit by a car while jogging. “I was visiting my home in Houston after my first year of college when I was hit by a Cadillac,” said Vallbona, now 46. “I flew up into the air and then the car pinned me underneath it.” Vallbona said that despite suffering a massive head injury, the whole event was peaceful, not painful. And, she said, she’s grateful it happened because it reinforced her faltering faith at the time. “What I had was a near-death experience. What I felt wasn’t pain — it was awesome. It was God,” said Vallbona. Vallbona said that right at the time of her accident, she was questioning

her belief system and was asking for a sign that God exists. Vallbona can now share her story with others because she is one of just 30 or so people featured in a new book on the topic. Enter James Garlow, pastor of Skyline Wesleyan Church in San Diego. Garlow took it upon himself to interview more than 400 people to research and round up hundreds of first-person accounts of near-death experiences. Once he compiled these real-life experiences, Garlow teamed with journalist Keith Wall to co-author the book “Encountering Heaven and the Afterlife: True Stories from People Who Have Glimpsed the World Beyond.” Wall and Garlow use their latest book to provide insight about what exactly is “on the other side.” For more information, or to purchase the book, visit
