Another one bites the dust Students, instructors mourn the loss of another victim of budget cuts BY KENDRA HARTMANN | VILLAGE NEWS n Sept. 26, just days before the start of the fall quarter at UC San Diego, Tara Magboo, an instructor at the campus’ Crafts Center, received an email: all of the courses she had planned to teach at the center were cancelled, not for lack of students but because the university had decided to close the center for the 2012-13 academic year. “At first I was in disbelief when I found out through email about the closure … I didn’t hear from the Crafts Center directly, so I didn’t believe the news at first,” Magboo said. “I was in the midst of preparing for classes when I found out this information. I found out two days before teaching that my extension class was cancelled, in addition to the non-credit adult enrich-
ment jewelry courses. Our catalog of classes was printed and mailed out. Our online registration was live and we had already started registering students for classes. The information completely caught everyone by surprise.” Interim center director Joyce Rooks, who had only found out about the closure earlier that same day, said the news came as more than a bit of a shock. “There had always been funding issues, but the thing that was a surprise was how this happened so quickly,” she said. “We were preparing for the fall quarter, had already printed up our brochures, were planning all our events, and it just took us by surprise. That’s what hurts the most.” The Crafts Center, which has offered non-credit courses in disciplines like ceramics, jewelry making, glass blowing, metal
works, silk screening, photography, weaving and more for 40 years, had been the potential target of budget woes for several years, Rooks said. Most notably, the building, which Rooks said has been “cobbled together over the years,” was not quite up to current building standards, and would need substantial renovations. “[The center] started with a couple of old guard shacks, and it’s become a patchwork of artist spaces,” she said. “Everyone loves the funky nature of it, but when it comes to 21st-century standards, it’s not quite there.” Packaged under the purview of the University Centers — under which the Price Center and Student Center facilities also operate — the Crafts Center was opened in 1972 with the idea that students, under
The new Women’s Museum in Liberty Station has a special tribute planned for Gloria Penner, who passed away on Oct. 6 from pancreatic cancer at the age of 81. On Nov. 9, the “Broads in Broadcasting,” an event celebrating women who broke through the barriers of the broadcast world, will certainly be subdued by the loss of the dynamic Penner. A quote from Penner sums up her philosophy as one of those outstanding and talented “broads” with a Dorothy Parker-esque perspective. “In the 1970s, I was a vigorous believer that women needed better representation in business and society, and I worked hard to make that happen. I doubt my demeanor resembled the TV-film stereotypes of the obedient, dutiful babe in the background.” How do we honor a woman who was one of the most astute interviewers of politicians in San Diego? We need only look back in time to the 19th Amendment, giving women the right to vote. We vote this Nov. 6 to honor Penner and because we have the right to vote, thanks to some hardworking women who went before us and fought for women’s rights.

Yard-sign thefts frustrate voters in the Shores BY MARIKO LAMB | VILLAGE NEWS As the elections loom nearer, candidates and supporters on all sides can, at times, get into spirited debate about everything from priorities in the city, state or federal budgets to the role certain leaders should play in government. Accompanying the already hotly contested issues, a rash of political yardsign thefts in the Shores only seems to solidify hard feelings ingrained in opposing political supporters. According to longtime La Jolla Shores resident and merchant Myrna Naegle, more than 20 signs supporting District 1 City Councilwoman Sherri
Lightner have been stolen from the La Jolla Shores neighborhood in a span of about two weeks. “We don’t want to put any more signs up because it would just be futile,” she said. “It’s gotten to the point where we can’t put them into our yards.” Although Naegle contacted the police about the thefts, she said they were unable to write a report. SDPD spokeswoman Lt. Andra Brown explained that in order for police to do anything about the thefts, the owner of the signs — the candidates — must file a report. “Generally speaking, candidates give the signs to supporters for their yards

LA JOLLA VILLAGE NEWS
BY DAVE SCHWAB | VILLAGE NEWS Construction on the new lifeguard tower is on schedule, there is a drive to establish a neighborhood-watch program and an effort is under way to study alternatives other than a pedestrian crossing at Torrey Pines Road, but the
prospects of the community ever getting its own ranger to police Kellogg Park are slim. Those were the highlights of La Jolla Shores Association’s (LJSA) October meeting. The advisory group, which makes recommendations to the city on parks and
related issues within La Jolla Shores, heard from Northern Division police public affairs officer Omar Sinclair, San Diego lifeguard Lt. John Sandmeyer and Dan Daneri of the Park and Recreation Department, all of whom updated community planners on the status of neighborhood concerns.
• Construction on the new Shores lifeguard tower is nearing completion, Sandmeyer reported. “They are wrapping up the interior of the tower, the electrical and plumbing in the walls, and it’s heartening to see them moving at such a rapid pace,” he said. Adding that the stairs of the cantilevered lifeguard tower are being welded in place and outside wood paneling is now being put in place, Sandmeyer joked lifeguards are taking bets on how soon the job will be done. “New Year’s Day is the over/under and I’ve got the under,” he quipped. In any event, Sandmeyer said the city is aware that lifeguards will not move into the new facility until construction is completely finished. • Sinclair endorsed the establishment of a Neighborhood Watch program in La Jolla Shores. “Neighborhood Watches are the eyes and ears for the department and help us focus on issues and problems we may not be aware of,” he said. Anyone interested in participating in Neighborhood Watch is urged to call Sinclair at (619) 756-2419 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. • Daneri said the city is establishing an unfunded parks list for projects. He invited Shores residents to weigh in on suggestions on what needs to be done to address future needs. “Is a park ranger on the unfunded list?” asked LJSA board member Janie Emerson. “I don’t think you’ll see one funded just for La Jolla Shores,” replied Daneri, noting the situation at Kellogg Park is different than at Children’s Pool, which has its own ranger because “of the seals and the problems they create there.” Though he agreed that a prospective ranger might stay busy during the summer, Daneri was not certain such a position would be necessary the rest of the year, and, he added, “I don’t know that a seasonal ranger would work.” Some members, however, felt security issues still needed to be addressed. “Summer is the worst time down there [at Kellogg Park],” said LJSA board member Mary Coakley-Munk. “Some enforcement would make a huge difference.” Daneri conceded her concerns were
valid, but, he said, “That’s true of every (coastal) park.” • Sixteen-year-old La Jolla Boy Scout Kristoff Pawinski filled the LJSA in on his plans to pursue an Eagle Scout project for Troop 271, in collaboration with Friends of La Jolla Shores, a local nonprofit raising funds for community improvements. “We want to make a donor wall right in front of the whale [J.J.] in the small park, get a bunch of little metal fish that have the names of donors,” he said. Mary Coakley-Munk, on LJSA’s Parks and Beaches Committee, said Friends of La Jolla Shores is funding the fish. Shores resident Tim Lucas said Scouts have to “do fundraising and come up with a project that works,” in order to achieve Eagle Scout status, the highest rank in Boy Scouts. • La Jolla community planner Dan Allen asked the group to support his efforts to seek an alternative to the construction of a controversial pedestrianonly crosswalk at Princess Street on high-traffic Torrey Pines Road. “A traffic signal at Princess would make the situation worse than it is now,” Allen said, noting an alternative he would like the city to study is the feasibility of creating an overhead bridge, which, while expensive, might be practical if it could be included into long-range plans under way on the Torrey Pines Road Corridor Improvment Project. “How many people would want to use this pedestrian bridge — 100, 10,000?” asked LJSA’s Emerson. “An overlapping bridge is a whole lot of money.” The Princess Street signal is already included in the improvement plan, Lucas said, but it might not be too late to alter some of the plan’s aspects. “There are millions of dollars that haven’t been funded yet,” he said. “We might want to present an alternative that might be better than what’s been approved.” LJSA chairwoman Audrey Keene asked Allen to return with something in writing the group could sign off on requesting the city to study alternatives other than the proposed Princess Street light. The group’s next meeting will be Wednesday, Nov. 14 at 7 p.m. in Building T-29 at SIO.
NEWS La Jolla angel urges others to take the leap BY MARIKO LAMB | VILLAGE NEWS Guardian angels are not always the kind that descend from above. At times, angels can live among us, serving as a guide for others in need of love and, perhaps, a place to call home. La Jolla resident, attorney, foster youth advocate and mother Leslie Gladstone takes on that role, helping fulfill a longstanding need in San Diego County through her work on the board of directors at Angels Foster Family Network, a nonprofit fosterfamily agency that connects at-risk infants and toddlers with families throughout San Diego. More than serving as an advocate for other parents to open up their homes to foster babies, Gladstone became a foster parent herself nearly 10 years ago. “It’s always been something I’ve wanted to do — to help a child that needed help — and there are so many here in San Diego that do,” she said. Although she knew from an early age that she wanted to foster a child, it wasn’t until she was 40 and already had a daughter of her own when she decided to take the leap. She was referred to Angels by a friend, went through two months of rigorous training and finally fostered her “Angels baby,” 22-month-old Selena. “They do a phenomenal job of acting as liaison between the county and the parents, as well as the birth parents. They hold your hand through the entire process and provide a lot of education and support,” she said. “It’s
pretty quick once you’re qualified. It was only a week after [completing training] when I got the call, and Selena came to live with me.” Now Selena is 11 and living with Gladstone as her legally adopted daughter. Her family may not seem conventional from the outside — with birth daughter Jessica, 16, Selena and Selena’s birth sister Ana, 17, all living under one roof — but Gladstone said her family is just like any other. “They’ve always considered themselves to be sisters,” she said. “They love each other and hate each other just like any other sisters do.” Despite facing some obstacles, Gladstone said her decision to foster and adopt Selena was the most rewarding decision she has ever made. “There are challenges, and I think you have to look at yourself as to why you’re doing this,” she said. “You have to be ready for anything — as you have to be with any child — and just be prepared to open up your heart and have some real love in it.” That trait — love — is the only common one required of foster parents, she said. “[Foster parents] have a deep caring for children and an understanding and patience with the system, because it can sometimes be challenging,” she said. “For example, if you have a child that was physically abused and you have to maintain visits with the parent who was the abuser.” The overarching reward, however, to both the foster parents and children
trumps any obstacle. “There are difficulties, but even if it is a short time, you have with these children, you are absolutely saving their lives, and they will have a remarkably better life,” she said. “If you are in a situation where you can help a child, you can really have a huge affect on the lives of these little kids.” Angels Foster Family Network specializes in abused and neglected children 3 years old and younger with a unique focus on preventing what is known as Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD). During the child’s crucial period of development, severe neglect, abuse or separation from caregivers can result in a persistent failure to communicate or respond to social interactions in a developmentally appropriate way, affecting a child’s life well beyond the age of 3. “If a child doesn’t form an emotional bond with someone by the time they are 3, they can never form it. That is really one of Angels’ main missions is to get them into a loving home — even if it’s not a permanent home — during that crucial time so they can have a bond with another human being,” Gladstone explained. Many of these children have had early experiences that are “absolutely horrendous,” she said. “We’ve had children who have tested positive for drugs — basically born addicted to drugs. We’ve had some children with most of their bones broken from physical abuse. We have severe neglect, where they’re nowhere

near what their proper weight is supposed to be,” she said. “It’s horrible. There are just so many sad situations and so many children who didn’t do anything to deserve this.” Angels has become the county’s goto choice when a child is removed from his or her home, Gladstone said. Since the nonprofit’s inception in 1999, Angels has provided foster homes to more than 550 babies in San Diego. A number of children, however, continue to be turned away each day because there are not enough foster families available for the county’s needs, particularly in key areas like east and south county. Gladstone urges anyone who has thought about fostering a child to take the leap as she did. “It is absolutely, without a doubt, the most rewarding thing I’ve done in my life,” she said. “Don’t wait as long as I did, because it’s just a fabulous way to make a real difference in the world, give help where help is needed,
CIVICreport: La Jolla Town Council, Oct. 11 QUICKHITS BY MARIKO LAMB | VILLAGE NEWS Highlights from the Town Council’s Oct. 11 meeting: • Anu Delouri, spokeswoman for UCSD’s Physical and Community Planning, responded to allegations that Scripps’ Marine Ecosystem Sensing, Observation and Modeling Laboratory (MESOM) is being built higher than the renderings shown to the community during its planning stages. “The MESOM project is being built per the permits and approvals received for everything that was indicated in the coastal development permits. It has been a long process with the Coastal Commission and there are several conditions that were applied as part of the project to enhance and open up other views to the ocean,” she said. “The uni-
versity has not deviated from any plans. It has not built the building any different than what it was supposed to.” Trustee Egon Kafka indicated his hope that the university and community can continue to work together in an intelligent fashion to ensure community members do not feel bereft in the future. Delouri said she is always willing to provide additional information about any project the community desires. “It was not our intent to deceive you,” she said. “I come to these meetings as a conduit and if there is ever a time when you want more information about a particular project, you want to see additional plans, I or someone at my office is happy to share that with you.” • The mayor’s office announced it has restored money in this year’s budget to
trim about 7,500 queen and date palm trees in public rights of way throughout the city. District 1 City Councilwoman Sherri Lightner’s office has requested that all queen and date palms throughout the village be evaluated for inclusion in the tree-trimming project. Kafka, who contacted nearly 30 arborist companies several months ago for bids on tree trimming in the Village, said he received “compellingly low bids” from many of the companies. “I was surprised at how cheaply this could be done,” he said. “As far as La Jolla goes, I’d really like to see this done as cheaply and efficiently as possible.” He also urged that the tree-trimming program be expanded to include proper maintenance of the trees.

Local business: La Jolla businesswoman creates a whale of a chip BY DAVE SCHWAB | VILLAGE NEWS Whatever Terry Kraszewski does, you can bet it will have something to do with the ocean or the creatures within it. A self-avowed beach person, Kraszewski has spent her adult life deriving a living from the sea. But rather than extract, she’s been one to give back. The owner of surf boutique Ocean Girl at 2162 Avenida de la Playa in La Jolla Shores (she owned another boutique for a dozen years in Mission Beach prior to opening Ocean Girl), Kraszewski has also authored children’s book “Surf Angel,” and for the past six years has successfully marketed her expanding, homegrown brand of Whale Tails tortilla chips. “I just love being by the ocean ... it’s so beautiful and it helps you calm down,” said the white-haired, blue-eyed Kraszewski of her muse. Marine mammals have always been a preoccupation of hers. “I love dolphins and whales so much,” she said, noting she was a synchronized swimmer as a little girl and used to tie her feet together “to be either a dolphin or a mermaid.” She has carried that marine-mammal theme through with “Surf Angel,” a children’s bedtime story about a creature who ensures a safe night’s sleep to all her ocean friends while bringing children closer to the magical wonders of the sea. “I wrote it with my daughter,” Kraszewski said, explaining that the story is about “taking care of each other and the animals of the sea.” Kraszewski and her husband started Whale Tails chips, choosing whales as
the canvas because they felt whales often represented an iconic symbol of ocean conservation. “We also felt that [the whale tail] would be a great dipping chip,” Kraszewski added pointing out, “It’s better for dipping by natural design.” But Kraszewski’s organic, gluten-free Whale Tails chips were also to have a higher purpose — ocean conservation. Toward that end, she solicited the help of renowned marine life artist Wyland and his nonprofit Wyland Foundation, which is working to preserve the world’s oceans, waterways and marine life by encouraging environmental awareness through education programs, public arts projects and community events. “Wyland was so kind to do the art on my packaging,” Kraszewski said. “We both have the same belief in conservation through education. So the money we raise through our chips funds school programs to educate children about the ocean and how we can be better stewards.” Right from the start, the chips, made by Kraszewski’s best friend and marketed as “chips with a conscience,” were meant to give back to the environment. “Our simple idea was, ‘Let’s do something that doesn’t just sit on a shelf, but that people have to keep on buying so it would be fundraising,’” she said. Whale Tails chips, sold locally through Whole Foods chain and numerous local, coastal outlets like Jimbo’s, the OB Co-op, SeaWorld and delis throughout San Diego, started out with one flavor — yellow corn made with a special Hawaiian salt. The line has since expanded to three flavors, adding blue corn with chia, a “super”

seed high in omega-3 fatty acids and a Hawaiian barbecue chip with mango flavoring. Kraszewski’s fascination with the cetaceans extends beyond their brand image. Two years ago, she took the trip of a lifetime, joining a Birch Aquarium tour to Scammon’s Lagoon on the Pacific side of Baja, Mexico to view spawning gray whales. “It was the most remarkable experience with 1,200 whales in the lagoon and 500-pound babies and we got so many up-close-and-personal experiences with them,” she said. “We touched them and we actually had a mother bring her baby right to the boat and pushed it right to us.” Kraszewski also traveled recently to Long Beach where she viewed blue whales, the largest creature ever to live on the Earth. “It was absolutely remarkable, the awe of them,” she said. “There are no words to describe the majesty of that animal. Underneath the water, they’re this beautiful ice blue, almost like a turquoise. On the surface, they’re as gray as a battleship. We were in a 60foot catamaran and the whale was easily as long as we were.”
A crop of orchids blooming in La Jolla BY MARIKO LAMB | VILLAGE NEWS San Diego Architectural Foundation’s annual Orchids & Onions Awards returned to honor the year’s bloomers and stinkers in architecture, interior design, historic preservation, sustainable design and landscape architecture throughout the city. This year, among 19 projects presented with awards at the Museum of Contemporary Art in La Jolla on Oct. 11 were three La Jolla attractions, which were honored with Orchid awards for blooming architecture, interior design and landscape architecture. And the winners are …
Thomas Schoos, mastermind behind the building’s interior design, even lined the restaurant’s vintage brick walls with his own original paintings, which depict bold graffiti-style illustrations of seafood on oversized canvases. Exposed brick and natural wood elements line the walls and ceiling of the establishment, and the branches of six 100-year-old olive trees twist overhead as guests enjoy their fare. Iconic images and aged textures transform the former industrial warehouse into an eclectic rustic garden dappled in light from the interior skylights by day and from the twinkling light fixtures by night. Schoos’ vision and transformation brought to life a long-vacant building, ultimately earning him and his design team an Orchid in this year’s interior design category.
Its prominent feature — a dramatic glass panel suspended on the building’s front façade — makes for a welcoming entrance to the state-of-the-art facility. Adding to the design are the building’s floor-to-ceiling glass-walled interior hallways, its use of ample natural lighting and materials, and a spacious central courtyard that serves as the communal hub for transport in and out of the building. Flanked by generous open landscaped spaces and situated at the intersection of two major pedestrian routes, the building encourages its inhabitants to interact and exchange ideas in a stimulating, indoor-outdoor learning facility. The innovative architecture of the building — and the cutting-edge technology it holds — creates an atmosphere that is commensurate to the world-class medical school and its students.
HERRINGBONE: ORCHID, INTERIOR DESIGN What was previously a vast, vacant warehouse with an expansive barreled roof, has been transformed into a 21st century wonderland filled with unique nautical elements, like stacks of lobster traps filled with lacquered puffer fish, a giant whale skeleton caged in wrought iron and exposed light bulbs, and rope-art installations draped from every corner of the restaurant’s one-ofa-kind chandeliers and lighting elements.
UCSD MEDICAL EDUCATION AND TELEMEDICINE BUILDING: ORCHID, ARCHITECTURE This 88,000-square-foot medical training center, designed by architects at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, is a striking modern spectacle that exudes transparency and well-executed design to inspire the next generation of medical experts housed within its glasspaned walls.

Most days though, Kraszewski is content to tend shop at Ocean Girl, where she carries a wide variety of surfwear and beach accessories for women of all ages and backgrounds. Though she’s not quite ready to dis-
cuss details, Kraszewski said there are even bigger and better things in store in the future for the Whale Tails line. “It’s been fantastic,” she said. For more information, visit www.whaletailschips.com.

The funds were sourced from savings in the councilwoman’s office budget. “If this works out well, we’re hoping to continue to save money in our office budget to do that on a regular basis,” said Lightner’s representative, Erin Demorest. • Kafka announced that he found a local landscape company to care for the hanging planters throughout the Village for $6,000 per year, nearly $20,000 less than what the La Jolla Village Merchants Association was previously spending on maintenance of the Village’s 122 hanging planters. “If this community can learn a lesson, it’s to keep it cheap and cheerful,” he said. “The things that we can do something about, let’s work together to make things shiny without breaking the bank.”
CONTINUED FROM Page 1 On Aug. 18, 1920, the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was ratified and gave women the same right men had since the Revolutionary days. Women and some sympathetic men fought at the state and national levels to achieve that vote. It overruled Minor vs. Happersett, in which a unanimous Supreme Court ruled that the 14th Amendment did not apply to women or give them a right to vote. Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton led the battle and drafted the 19th Amendment. Women have only had the right to vote for 92 years — a blip on the radar screen of American history. Young women and teenage girls would be surprised to learn that the right to even get a credit card in your name or buy a car in 1970 was not available to many women, even those ladies with personal wealth. Judy Schreiber, a University City psychologist, shared this personal anecdote. “The only thing that pops into my mind is that when I got divorced in 1970, I could not get a credit card on my own. My dad had to get one in his name … not exactly a right-to-vote issue, but a comment on women’s rights.” Another woman reported she had a full-time job in 1962 and was over 21, but she had to get her father to co-sign a car loan. Now times have changed for the better, according to District 1 City Councilwoman Sherri Lightner. “We have seen a lot of progress since the passage of the 19th Amendment, but the fact that we still do not have an Equal Rights Amendment shows there is more work to do,” she said. “We must continue to mentor and empower young women as they strive to achieve goals.” U.C. Planning Group chairwoman Janay Kruger weighed in on the subject. “Democracy is based on being able to vote for representatives and initiatives to further our goals for our country,” Kruger said. “I believe that freedom of speech and voting are two of the greatest gifts we have. Giving women the right to vote in 1920 was

Do you remember the scene in ‘Mary Poppins’ when the mother goes out to demonstrate in favor of women’s rights? How far have we come? My mom would ask my father how she should vote. I couldn’t wait until I was 20, the legal age back then to vote in Switzerland,” she said. “I think we have come a long way, but still we need more women to step up and get elected. Why is 51 percent of the U.S. population underrepresented in Congress and Sacramento?” Abigail, a young mother of a toddler, grew up in Vietnam and came with her parents to the United States. When she was in high school, she studied Abigail Adams and her relationship with husband John Adams, second president of the United States. She loved the role Abigail Adams played on the sidelines. As a founding father, John Adams was away from the Boston home and family, and the letters Abigail and John exchanged inspired her as a student. “Remember the ladies!” admonished Abigail Adams in a letter to her husband, who was working on the writing of “The Declaration of Independence.” No vote for women was forthcoming. In less than three weeks, American women everywhere will wake up on Nov. 6 with media reminders to get out to vote. Is voting just a rote thing to do? Is it a privilege that comes with citizenship in this great country? One has only to turn back the calendar to Nov. 16, 1917 to remember when 33 women were convicted of obstructing the sidewalk in front of the White House that was occupied by Woodrow Wilson. These women were arrested and some were beaten for their picketing about the right to vote. Lucy Burns, Dora Lewis and Alice Paul ended up in Occoquan Workhouse in Virginia, where they were brutally treated. Women owe it to past heroines like Abigail Adams, Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and today’s angel, Gloria Penner, to honor their efforts.
CIVICreport: LJ Village Merchants, Oct. 10 BY DAVE SCHWAB | VILLAGE NEWS The La Jolla Village Merchants Association officially has a new home. Phil Coller, president of the business improvement district (BID), announced at the group’s Oct. 10 meeting that a lease has been signed for office space beginning Dec. 1 at 1162 Prospect Place near La Valencia Hotel. “We were lucky,” said Coller after the meeting. “We made a contact with the right person and it came up at the right time. It worked. It was fate.” Coller said a soft opening for the new center, where the La Jolla Visitors Center — currently at 7966 Herschel Ave. — will move to, will be in late December or early January. “We’re hoping to have everything finally complete for an official opening before spring break,” Coller said. “We’re going to make it a facility for the entire community.” Besides housing the tourist visitors center, Coller said the new information center will have a small amount of meeting space to accommodate small community groups. “We’re going to make this place available for La Jolla interests, both the general population and the businesses,” he said. MERCHANT NEWS • LJVMA held its annual board election to fill eight director posi-
tions. Before announcing the winners, Coller made a plea for commitment from board members. “We are looking for passion on this board,” he said. “I don’t want anybody on this board, including me, that is not passionate to make it go forward.” The top eight of 12 vote getters in the LJVMA election, in descending order, were: Coller, 61 votes; Krista Baroudi, 55 votes; Michael Saler owner of Hennessey’s La Jolla, 51 votes; Scott Levin, 48 votes; Lorna York 47 votes; Trenton Bonner, 46 votes; incumbent Leon Chow, 43 votes and Mark Krasner, 39 votes. • Sheila Fortune, LJVMA’s executive director, said La Jolla hoteliers will be going all out in January to lodge visitors to the 2013 Farmers Insurance Golf Tournament at Torrey Pines Golf Course Jan. 21-27. “La Jolla Village Lodge, Cove Suites, Best Western and others will provide discounted room rates, not to capture players and their families, but their caddies, therapists and others in their entourage,” she said. • James Niebling of the LJVMA’s Design Division asked for, and was granted, a request by the board to move $12,000 out of the BID’s holiday décor budget and transfer it to the landscaping budget to fund ongoing maintenance of Village flower baskets. “We’re going to install ground planters at various key intersections through the Village,” Niebling said.
“We’ll also work with the La Jolla Information Center to do landscaping in front of that, as well.” Niebling said the amount of roof lighting strung up for the holidays will be confined to Upper Girard Avenue and be reduced this year to 1,000 linear feet, down from 4,000 feet used last year. Once again, he said, Village streetlights will be adorned with shooting stars, gold bows and garland for the holidays. “It will look more natural and less artificial,” he said. • Ann Kerr-Bache, who coordinates La Jolla’s annual Christmas parade sponsored by La Jolla Town Council, updated LJVMA’s board on plans for this year’s parade. She said a new, 501(c)3 nonprofit has been established for the parade to allow tax-exempt donations. “We’d like to get support from the merchant’s association,” she said. Coller directed Kerr-Bache to Fortune “to see what we can do to support you.” Asked by Kerr-Bache if the group would be interested in promoting the event in a similar way that it promotes the La Jolla Art and Wine Festival, Coller replied that the group hasn’t “discussed it yet,” noting any event the BID promotes “must benefit people who live and work in La Jolla.” The group’s next meeting will be Wednesday, Nov. 14 at 8:30 a.m. at Cuvier Club, 7776 Eads Ave.
LETTER TO THE EDITOR Projects debate takes on vitriolic tone After I wrote my last letter to the editor concerning the Whitney Project in La Jolla Shores (“Setting The Record Straight, “ Jan 2, 2012), I waited for the Whitney-aimed lightening bolts to rain down upon my home. When nothing happened for a month or two, I figured my advice (to suck it up and get on with the application) had been taken to heart and I merrily departed for the family “cabin in the woods,” confident the worst of the vendetta was over. When I returned a few weeks ago, I was shocked to hear the battle was still raging. After reading a few recent letters to the editor and catching up on a couple I had missed, I am dismayed at the vitriolic and mean-spir-
ited tone the conflict has taken. The situation has become a “theater of the ridiculous.” Mr. Whitney’s attacks on those who oppose him seems misguided and off target. If he wants to garner support for his project, I hardly think alienating the whole community is a profitable course. If he wants to show himself to be a vindictive and meanspirited poor loser, then he may have made his point. Both sides of the conflict have been accused of having similar situations: a non-conforming use or non-permitted addition or some other sort of ministerial problem with their property. To make this a topic is an attempt to smear those who disagree and create a totally hostile environment. The actuality is that most of the accusations have been found to
be false or have been resolved seems to be lost in the chatter. The issue of non-conforming current use is nothing more than a red herring. It is an attempt to mislead the community. The real issue is the merit, or lack of merit, of the proposed Whitney project. That is where the battle lies. It’s not about who the decision makers are, who the new councilmember might be, who is supporting who, or any other extraneous matter. It is about the merits of the proposed project. Mr. Whitney wants to steer the discussion away from the actual facts — a classic tactic of misdirection. As the Wizard of Oz said, “Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain …”

“It’s bizarre to me that some people don’t get project-based learning,” he said. “Basically, these kids just did exactly what a real conceptual artist would do, and I have no doubt that every kid now knows what conceptual art is, and there’s no need to give them a test or anything. It’s real-world learning, and doing the real thing is what gives you passion.” Having the chance to display their work, Robin said, also connects the students to the community and lends credibility to the project. “They all felt like they were part of a community, and now there’s this connection with the exhibit,” he said. “You need authenticity in art, and exhibiting gives it that. The connection is the exhibition.” As for the physical aspect of their cross-city sojourn, 10 of the students made the entire 7.7-mile journey, while the rest participated in sections. Robin walked the entire way with his class, and as a result, he said, “I’ve been sore all week.” The display of the “7.7 Mile Box” project will be on display at Bird Rock Coffee Roasters, located at 5627 La Jolla Blvd., through the end of October.

Get a taste of what’s cookin’ for La Jolla High With autumn comes cooler weather, back-to-school and pumpkin-spiced everything. For a taste of the feel and flavors of fall, take a stroll down the streets of La Jolla Village for an event that will nourish much-needed funds for programs at La Jolla High School. This year’s Taste of La Jolla event on Oct. 23 will feature gourmet bites from 25 of the Village’s top restaurants, providing sample-sized plates of popular dishes, ranging in style from seafood to steak, Spanish-style to Asian-fusion, savory to sweet and everything in between from 6 to 8:30 p.m. “It’s a pub crawl for foodies,” said Jeff Macelli, president of the Foundation of La Jolla High School. “Guests will go from restaurant to restaurant sampling a little bit at a time.” More than just a gastronomic tour through the Village, however, funds from the foodie crawl will bolster educational programs for the public high school. “We certainly need all the help we can get in this era of budget cuts,” said Macelli. Last year, the event raised $18,000 for programs at the school, and this year, organizers hope to raise as much or more for the school’s programs, staff and much-needed supplies and maintenance. “We are in the same financial situation each year. The need is always the same,” said Macelli. “Any support we get from the community goes a long way to pay for everything from school supplies [to] staffing. It just keeps the school functioning and running.” Tickets to the event are $45 in advance. To purchase tickets, call (858) 5511250 or visit www.ljhs.sandi.net/Foundation/event-tasteoflajolla.html. Check-in is Chase Bank, 7777 Girard Ave., where guests will be provided a hand stamp and a map of participating restaurants. Following the event, Barfly, 909 Prospect St., will host an after-party with special prices on drinks. — Mariko Lamb

The Nice Guys organization began in 1979, formed by a dozen concerned San Diegans who wanted to give a “hand up, not a handout” to local individuals and families in need. The founders wanted to help others, but also to have fun doing it — putting the “fun” back in “fundraising.” Attend any of their events or meetings, and it will immediately become apparent that Nice Guys certainly do have fun, and that a sense of humor is mandatory for membership.
To date, the group has provided contributions of more than $13 million to local people down on their luck. There are about 140 members (including about 20 nice gals), but no paid staff. Members cover any expenses, so all donations go directly to needy community members to provide help to people who would really rather be giving than receiving. Each year, the Nice Guys honor
someone who has done extraordinary things for our community. Their Nice Guy of the Year (NGoY) gala, held recently at the San Diego Marriott Marquis & Marina, honored Ernest Rady for his lifelong successful entrepreneurship, passionate philanthropy and dedicated community leadership. Born in Winnepeg, Canada, he brought his family here in 1966, and just loves San Diego. He formed American Assets, Inc.,

through which he controls and manages a group of companies dedicated to financial services, investment and real estate. His leadership, vision and financial contributions have resulted in his name being attached to both Rady Children’s Hospital and UCSD’s Rady School of Management. Gala proceeds will benefit both those organizations. The black-tie event began with a spirited cocktail reception. Channel 10’s

Pat Brown emceed, ably standing in for habitual emcees Kimberly Hunt and Billy Ray Smith, who were away for parents’ weekend at their daughter’s college. Seated for dinner in the ballroom, guests were asked to stand as the honoree entered the room, where he received a grand ovation. Popular Nice Guy Neil O’Connell, a marine sergeant major, then introduced the Marine Band San Diego, whose performance at this event has become a beloved tradition. They marched in, and taking up their instruments in a most military way, played with extreme precision and discipline — much to the guests’ delight. Father Joe Carroll did the invocation. He dialed G-O-D on his cell phone, then said, “I’m surprised you answered, recognizing my number.” He himself was NGoY in 1990; others have included John Lynch, Billy Casper, Conrad Prebys, and Gayle (Mrs. Pete) Wilson, the first (and so far, only) female NGoY. Dinner featured filet mignon and crab cakes. A well-produced (and rather funny) video about the honoree was shown. Keeping with the group’s penchant for humor, traditionally these events — and everything connected with them — are more like roasts than somber, serious affairs. Last year’s honoree, Ted Rossin, welcomed Rady, transferring to him the pin identifying him as the new NGoY. The recipient threatened a 90-minute speech, but kept it to around 15. He said the Nice Guys represent a big part of what makes San Diego such a great community. So, the Nice Guys saluted Ernest Rady — and he saluted them. The evening ended with dancing to Liquid Blue, whose fabulous music — and cool music videos — kept the dance floor filled to capacity.

CONTINUED FROM Page 1 constant pressure from their regular academic pursuits, could come and relax among the kilns, metal-working machines and wheels, perhaps learning an artistic craft in the process. The center was open to students, faculty and staff, and members of the community — some traveling from as far away as Los Angeles and Orange County to attend its highly acclaimed courses, which are offered on a sliding scale basis, with UCSD students paying the least. “This place was developed as a place for students to come blow off steam,” said Rooks, who started taking courses — then eventually teaching them — at the center in 1975. “It’s a social outlet, a great place to meet friends, to learn and to have a good time. There’s no pressure of getting a grade. You can just learn to make something and take it as far as you want. And we’ve actually had a lot of great artists come out of the Crafts Center.” Apart from the budding artists who won’t be able to fire pottery or blow glass this year, the closure of the center also affects the more than 35 instructors who taught there. Magboo, a jewelry-making instructor at the center for nearly five years (she spent seven years before that taking courses there) said the void left by the center’s closure has been taken up by efforts to save it. An online petition has been created to help save the center, and community members have been urged to write letters to administrators protesting the decision. Magboo has even been in the process of creating a short film in support of the center. “The university’s decision has been
devastating to this entire community … Instructors lost their teaching positions and hundreds of students lost their ability to learn in this wonderful facility,” she said. The administration hasn’t said why it’s decision to shutter the center came so abruptly before the start of the quarter. On Sept. 25, those visiting the center’s website were greeted by a letter, signed by Gary Ratcliff, assistant vice chancellor of student life, outlining the bare details surrounding the closure: “The UCSD Crafts Center will be closed during the 2012-13 academic year pending resolution of budget shortfalls and renovations needed to the Crafts Center facility. Workshops, non-credit classes and art exhibits through the Crafts Center will not be offered this academic year. The Crafts Center is funded by the University Centers, which operates the Price Center and Student Center facilities. Risings costs have triggered the need for budget reductions in the University Centers, which is funded primarily by the University Centers student fee. Decisions about reductions were based on students’ priorities and their usage of University Centers programs, service and facilities. Anticipated expenses related to facility renovations were factored into the decision. A recent facility condition analysis of the Crafts Center identified
$1.5 million in needed renovation work. This year, the University Centers will work with student leaders in the University Centers Advisory Board, Associated Students and Graduate Student Association to explore options for funding, renovating and reopening the Crafts Center.” The university’s explanation didn’t satisfy Magboo, her colleagues or students. “Both students and instructors are angry, shocked and deeply saddened by the loss of the Crafts Center,” Magboo said. “The university was not transparent in communicating the closure of the Crafts Center. We were not notified prior to the closing that this was going to take place. The way the university handled the situation was both cold and inhumane. Many instructors have been working here since the creation of the crafts center … We were thrown out without having any time to make preparations for our own livelihoods.”

DON BALCH | Village News
At press time, university administrators declined to elaborate on the online announcement. The one glimmer of hope for members of the Crafts Center’s community, meanwhile, is the possibility that, as indicated in Ratcliff’s letter, the center could be reopened next year. For that to happen, Rooks said, she believes the issue would have to stay at the forefront of university affairs. “We hope it will be reopened next year. We would like to see [the administration] held to their ‘academic year’ promise,” she said. “We’d like people to send letters to the administrators and let their opinion about the arts be known. [The arts] are being cut everywhere, this has been a great place for people who never had them, and I hon-
estly think it’s detrimental to our society. We’re seeking positive solutions. If it’s really important to people, we have to make sure it stays up front.” Rooks urged community members to send letters in support of the center to UCSD chancellor Pradeep Khosla, vice chancellor of student life Penny Rue and Ratcliff. Contact information for all three is available at www.facebook.com/groups/47236996611699 7/.

SPORTS Country Day girls’ tennis gears up for championships
THURSDAY · OCTOBER 18, 2012 LA JOLLA VILLAGE NEWS
Lauren Ross, center, and Hannah Shaich (cutout) are preparing with their teammates for the CIF championships.
Knowing that every win counts, the La Jolla Country Day varsity tennis team is aware that every match is important. Last year, it was able to win matches based on games. This year, it is all about winning sets. And when players are off one day or just not on top of their games, those lost sets can be detrimental to the final results. Over the last few weeks, the varsity Torreys took on Parker, Cathedral, Bishops, La Jolla High, Pacific Ridge and Dana Hills. Both the JV and varsity teams dominated Bishops, with the varsity team almost sweeping all of its doubles matches against Parker and Bishops. Juniors Danielle Devor and Lauren Ross shined, winning two out of three singles sets against both schools. Doubles players Lindsey Jacobs, Olivia Martin, Alexis Parkhurst, Hannah Shaich, Niki Mani and Kendal McGinnis all did great and won almost all of their doubles sets. Torreys defeated Parker 13-5 and Bishops 12-6. They were defeated 6-12, however, by Cathedral. The Torreys were only able to take home three singles sets
won by Devor and three doubles sets, two won by Shaich and Mani, and one by Jacobs and Martin. Cathedral played solid, and for some Country Day players, it was an off day — frustrating for the coaches as much as the players. This past week, the Torreys had one of their hardest competitions of the season, as they took on La Jolla High School and Dana Hills, two of Southern California’s toughest teams. They began the week with a match against LJHS — their biggest rival, whom they’ve beaten in the finals of the CIF championships for the past two years. The Vikings have a solid team, but the Torreys were ready to put their best foot forward for this match. Head coach Joslynn Burkett added more strength to the doubles lineup, teaming Devor with Jacobs. As a result, the Torreys won seven out of nine doubles sets, which were dominated by Devor and Jacobs, as well as McGinnis and Martin. While the doubles teams were impressive, the Torreys struggled with the Vikings singles players, who made
very few errors and played at the top of their game. Burkett, however, did not leave the match disappointed. “The girls went out there and competed the best they could,” she said. “Not only did they compete, but their team spirit was by far the cheeriest and most supportive of the entire season. I’m positive if someone were watching and did not know the score, they wouldn’t have known that we lost.” After the tough loss against the Vikings, the Torreys took on Pacific Ridge for a “Pink Match” in support of breast cancer research, which the Torreys won 12 to 6.
The team then traveled to take on Dana Hills, one of LA’s top varsity teams, where the Torreys lost 3-15 — gaining three wins in the doubles sets from McGinnis/Martin and Jacobs/Ross. The loss was a great learning experience, however, as the competition against such a tough geam will allow them to be ready for regionals. The Torreys will rest and practice for one week before the CIF team championships, which will begin Oct. 23 at Country Day, and the CIF individual championships, which begin Nov. 5. — Cindy Sureephong, assistant tennis coach, La Jolla Country Day School
employs myriad innovative tactics to tackle Southern California’s environmental challenges from the building’s grounds. Significant reductions in energy consumption are sourced from a number of designs, including natural cooling by ocean breezes made possible by the building’s shape and arrangement, onsite renewable energy from a rooftop photovoltaic array and heating efficiencies achieved by thermal mass
and other sustainable measures. Landscape architects from Spurlock Poirer also made water management, conservation and reuse some of their primary goals, resulting in the creation of the building’s water efficient landscaping and plumbing, onsite wastewater recycling, and remediation of stormwater flow from the Pacific through a system of landscape bioswales and retention basins. The noteworthy efforts to construct
a building that meets the utmost standards in sustainable design, while not compromising the building’s aesthetic, were not overlooked by SDAF, earning architects at Kieran Timberlake and Spurlock Poirer praise as an exceptional example of environmentally sensitive design and landscape.

La Jolla High girls dig for donations The La Jolla High School girls’ volleyball program is hosting its third annual “Dig for the Cure” volleyball game on Wednesday, Oct. 24. The game, scheduled to being at 4:45 p.m., will be played at home against Scripps Ranch High School, immediately following the junior varsity game in La Jolla’s big gym. Each year the team chooses one home game and, through bake sales, T-shirt sales and donations, raises money for the San Diego affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. The team has raised more than $1,000 each year. All proceeds from the event will be donated to the breast cancer foundation.
Pedestrian hit near UCSD A 23-year-old woman who was crossing La Jolla Village Drive on foot was struck and killed by a 22-year-old female driver on Oct. 13, according to police.

Police said the driver was not at fault.
