Burglars target tented homes Police going door-to-door to warn Bird Rock residents BY CLAIRE HARLIN | VILLAGE NEWS

Get ready for Neveready La Jolla High School ska band starting to break into the music scene loud and clear


Carving out your Halloween plans

BY LAUREN VENTURA | VILLAGE NEWS High schools across the country have their fair share of run-of-the-mill garage bands jamming in their spare time, hoping to maybe play a prom or homecoming gig. Then, every once in awhile, a group of talented teens come together and actually churns out some digestible tunes and snags some stage time to boot. La Jolla High has one such garage band: Neveready. Comprised of nine teens who range from 17 to 19, Neveready is working hard to get the word out and maybe even become a local musical fixture. Since its January inception, the band has managed to glean shows at local charity events, the Metaphor Café in Escondido, Queen Bee’s in North Park where the band went head-to-head in a battle of the bands competition, the SEE NEVEREADY, Page 2

It’s bad enough having a termite infestation, but another concern has come up for those treating their homes for wooddamaging pests — burglary. Over the last month, there have been at least three break-ins in the Bird Rock area in which victims were undergoing termite tenting. During this process, a structure is completely covered with a nylon tent and then filled with a poisonous gas to eradicate the insects. There have been at least six fumigation-related burglaries since May, officials said, and all of the incidents took place in the neighborhoods surrounding La Jolla Boulevard, between Mission Boulevard and Nautilus Street. Chris Luce, the San Diego Police Department detective handling the cases, said it’s likely that burglars are entering houses with breathing apparatuses of some sort during the fumigation. A tent over the house is an obvious indication that there’s nobody home. “If they spent any time in there without a gas mask they’d probably be very ill, if not dead,” Luce said. Luce has been spending full days going door-to-door in the area to warn households that are scheduled to have their homes fumigated. Local pest control companies are working with him to supply client information. Removing valuables or putting important items in a safe are among Luce’s recommendations. He said the problem is not just happening in Bird Rock — it’s an increasing and reoc-

Splash Bash fundraiser and now the Mainstage at Soma. “Our first Soma Mainstage show was kind of a fluke,” said Jay Sanchioli, Neveready’s bassist. Sanchioli knew that one band was dropping out of an upcoming performance. A connection with a booking manager was made and now Neveready’s becoming quite possibly a Soma mainstay. The band’s next show there is Nov.13. It’s a venture they feel is promising, because most of the attendees of Soma concerts are youth who will be able to grow along with members of the band. Group members are excited for the last three bandmates to turn 18, so they can begin performing at the Casbah, a longstanding San Diego venue for upand-coming talent. As for its sound, Neveready’s music is a surprising amalgam of ska — first and foremost — blending reggae, soul and funk rhythms into the mix. Neveready is also known to gain inspiration from the likes of the Manchester Orchestra, a band that’s decidedly more indie. But don’t be fooled, Neveready doesn’t want to bore fans with oft-heard imitations of mainstream ska. “We love ska, but we don’t want to become a stereotypical ska band, because if we play only ska it can get kind of redundant,” said Declan Halloran, the band’s drummer. “We want to branch out, try to incorporate different types of music into our songs, like The Specials.” If you’re looking for a decent comparison of what its sound is reminis-

cent of, think Streetlight Manifesto — Neveready’s all-around favorite band. It’s live sets include long instrumental interludes, excitable lyrics that exude energy from the crowd and solid horn playing backed up by the trombone, trumpet and three saxophonists. Declan’s father, Mike Halloran, was a famed disc jockey at FM94.9 and provides the band with some insider tips that appear to have served its members well. “Basically, my dad taught us about etiquette,” said Declan. “Be polite to other bands, don’t talk too much during sets and have good manners on and off stage.” Christian Clark, 17, the band’s guitarist and vocalist, also claims that the group’s dedication to perfection is another factor for success. “I guess at the end of the day, I just feel like we’re never ready,” said Clark, chuckling. Despite a shifting change of the guard that occurs with increasing regularity due to band members heading off for college, Neveready claims it will continue to thrive, proving that this band just might be ready for anything.

Segway concerns roll in BY CLAIRE HARLIN | VILLAGE NEWS Walking down Avenida de la Playa recently, Terry Kraszewski saw something alarming — 12 to 15 people on Segways “booking it” through the business district toward the beach. “People were trying to get out of the way and drivers didn’t know what [the Segway operators] were doing,” said Kraszewski, sharing her experience with the La Jolla Shores Association (LJSA) at its monthly meeting Oct. 13. “I was stunned.” It’s against the law to ride a skateboard or bicycle on business district streets, said Lt. James Filley, who oversees the San Diego Police Department’s Northern Division. But operators of Segways, the two-wheeled, self-balancing, personal transportation devices that have become increasingly popular for tours, are treated as pedestrians. “By law, 15 people on Segways is no different than 15 people walking on the street,” said Filley. “Of course, it cuts a wider path down the sidewalk than walking in toe does.” Safety concerns about the twowheeled upright vehicles have also arisen worldwide, since the owner of Segway Inc. died last month while riding one of his company’s electric scooters off a cliff and into a river. CNN reported that the body of James Heselden, 62, was pulled from the River Wharfe in Northen England on Sept. 26, and a rugged-country version of the Segway was recovered at the scene. Although LJSA members have not taken action on the issue of Segway

traffic, the concern is on their radar after Kraszewski brought the issue to the table last week. LJSA President Joe Dicks said since skateboards are regulated, he’d be surprised if there aren’t regulations that could be put on Segways, such as time, location and speed. But Filley said skateboards and Segways are “like apples and oranges.” “Skateboards are more out-of-control and often move at greater speeds,” Filley said. It would take a strong push from the community, Filley said, followed by the approval of the San Diego City Council, to put any kind of ordinance in place — which Filley doesn’t see happening. “I haven’t had any complaints about Segways,” he said.

Another Side of San Diego Tours, headquartered downtown, gives Segway tours in the La Jolla Shores area. Beginning with a half-hour training session, the tours make a visit to the Scripps Research Institute, roll by mansions and cottages and end with a “gourmet, California-style” picnic in Kellogg Park. According to, the company is ranked the “No. 1 thing to do in San Diego.” It’s hard to say if Another Side of San Diego Tours is the company behind the large tour Kraszewski saw one day heading down Avenida de la Playa, because they normally give tours with about four to eight participants. Any more than that, said manager Chris SEE SEGWAY, Page 4


Soyla Bernice Gobert, 30, is being held at the Las Colinas Women’s Detention Facility in Santee after she allegedly tried to rob a La Jolla nail salon Oct. 16, police said. Lt. Jim Filley of the San Diego Police Department’s Northern Division said she allegedly entered Dan’s Nails & Spa, located at 8008 Girard Ave. at about 6:30 p.m. Saturday night and ordered everyone to the ground. She showed an air rifle, took money from the cash register and told customers to put their wallets in a bag, police said. When Gobert tried to leave, the salon owner and an employee chased her out of the store and tackled her in the street at the intersection of Prospect Street and Girard Avenue. R. Douglas Tondro, general manager of The Spot, saw the whole event unfold right in front of his restaurant, located at 1005 Prospect St. It looked like a brawl, he said. About four male passersby helped hold the suspect down until six police cars arrived, he said. “I heard someone scream ‘She has a gun,’ and then a man searched her bag and I heard him say he found the gun,” said Ton-

dro. “The girl was screaming bloody murder. They put her in a cop car and she was kicking and screaming throughout the whole thing.” According to police reports, Gobert was wearing a blonde wig the night of the incident. She is charged with two counts of robbery and two counts of false imprisonment with violence. Her bail is set at $100,000. Mazi, the owner of Mazi Boutique, located directly underneath Dan’s Nails & Spa, said she was tired that Saturday evening, so she closed her shop around 6 p.m. — a bit earlier than usual. She said she is concerned that had she not done so, she might have been the victim. Her boutique is on the first level, and the robber had to pass right by it to walk upstairs to the nail salon. Mazi said she has dealt with shoplifters before. About seven months ago, she said, two women made off with some dresses from her boutique. But she’s never experienced anything like what happened at Dan’s Nails & Spa in the 20 years her shop has been open in La Jolla. “Had my door not been locked, she could have come in here first,” said Mazi, who declined to give her last name. “I’m truly blessed. I had angels all around me.”

Parties larger than eight are normally split up, he said, although there are rare instances in which larger corporate groups may want to stay together as a “team-building” activity. Assistant manager Hillary King said the company utilizes a number of safety precautions for riding on sidewalks, such as traveling in singlefile lines and equipping each personal scooter with bicycle bells to alert other pedestrians. “We take it very slow,” she said. “We don’t have people parading down the sidewalks, running over small children or anything.” Albert Galura’s La Jolla-based Segway tour company, We Love Tourists, doesn’t conduct tours of more than six people, he said. Their tours begin at the company’s headquarters at the corner of Fay Avenue and Pearl Street and travel through the Village area to La Jolla High School and down to the beaches of Windansea. Galura said the tours run mainly along back streets, as to not disrupt foot traffic. “We stick to where the sidewalks aren’t congested,” said Galura. “We don’t want to be rolling around Prospect at noon in August.”

Ruth Short Chambers Ruth Short Chambers, a longtime resident of La Jolla, passed away on Thursday, Sept. 30, 2010 at the age of 92. She was born in Cleveland, Ohio and moved to San Diego in 1940 with her first husband, Willis E. Short, owner of La Jolla Interiors. They were longtime members of the San Diego Yacht Club and very active in the West

Coast sailing community and La Jolla Optimist Club. She and her second husband, J. Harvey Chambers, also shared a mutual love of the sea and the local Cuyamaca Mountains. Ruth was also a longtime active member of the San Diego Maritime Museum Auxiliary. She is survived by her son, Willis E. Short II; daughters, Penny McKittrick and Judith Ingalls; five grandchildren: Chris

Ingalls, Meredith McKittrick Ford, Michaelann McKittrick Carroll, Ed Short, Elizabeth Short; and four great grandchildren: Baily Ingalls, Summer Ingalls, Casey Carroll and baby-to-be-Ford. A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, Oct. 23, from 2 to 4 p.m. at the San Diego Yacht Club in the Spinnaker Room. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests a donation to the San Diego Hospice.

Cigarette butts are the most-littered items along La Jolla’s streets and beaches, comprising roughly 34 percent of all trash collected at community clean-up events, according to the Surfrider Foundation. Styrofoam, plastic film, moldable plastic and paper follow, each making up about 10 to 12 percent of all litter. On Oct. 14, Nell Carpenter of the La Jolla Town Council’s Beautification/Streetscape Committee shared successes with the council about an ongoing ash can installation project. Her committee teamed up with Surfrider volunteers Oct. 6 to install the first 10 of what they hope to be many more ash cans in La Jolla. The cans, made by Oceanside’s Cigarette Pollution Solutions, are heavyduty outdoor receptacles that shield against rain and come in a “pelican brown” color produced especially for La Jolla. The company called the device the “Butts Only Box.” Surfrider, a nonprofit environmental organization, is providing the ash cans, but they are relying in part on donations to supply the $200-a-piece contraptions — and they hope to install at least 100 more in La Jolla. Carpenter encouraged local businesses to sponsor their efforts. By purchasing a Butts Only Box, a business can have its logo printed on the device. The La Jolla Shores Association will discuss where to place ash cans at its next monthly meeting Nov. 10.

curring problem throughout the county. In Coronado, there recently was a string of string on about five similar reported incidents in a very short time, Luce said. Joe Parker, president of the Bird Rock Community Council, is collaborating with a detective in the San Diego County Sheriff ’s Department to combat the problem through awareness. “The best thing for residents to do is let neighbors know when they are having their house tented and call the police if they see anyone who doesn’t belong there,” Parker said. Mike Lawson, owner of La Jolla Termite and Pest Control, suggested hiring a security guard to watch over the home for the duration of the fumigation. “That way at least you have a fighting chance of scaring someone off,” said Lawson, whose company doublelocks all doors during the process. But, he said, “if a burglar wants to get in, they’ll get in through a window.” “At least in Bird Rock you have a lot of neighbor awareness,” Lawson said. Lt. Jim Filley, who oversees the San Diego Police Department Northern Division, said some pest control companies deploy pepper spray in homes to deter burglars because the fumigation chemical is odorless. Fumigation-related burglaries have been a city-wide problem for “quite some time,” he said. But he stressed, “if it’s predictable, it’s preventable.”


5 Officials outline proposed Councilmen debate Prop D in La Jolla

budget cuts for 2012 BY LAUREN VENTURA | VILLAGE NEWS San Diego city staff members held the first of eight town hall meetings Oct. 18 to discuss proposed budget cuts for the 2012 fiscal year. Mayor Jerry Sanders and top officials from the fire, police, library, parks and recreation and public works departments presented their budget deficits, outlining programs and services that may be eliminated or reduced to close the budget gap estimated at $72 million. At the meeting, which took place at University City High School, Chief Operating Officer Jay Goldstone explained that the reductions would be spread unevenly to reduce further impacts on San Diego police and fire department services. “The city libraries, parks and recreation centers would receive the worst impact,” Goldstone said. “All other departments will have to take 27.3 percent reductions, but fire and police will only have 6.6 percent in proposed cuts because those departments were already cut heavily.” Proposition D has been placed on the November ballot as a proposed solution, and if passed, would allow the city to SEE MEETING, Page 7

Highlights of 2012 proposed cuts Police Department: • Close two out of 10 area stations. • Close the multi-cultural center • Lay-off 162 sworn officers • Eliminate the Abandoned Car Abatement Unit

Fire Department: • Black-outs of five additional fire engines or trucks. • Single-unit fire stations close for up to one month at a time. • One of the city’s two air rescue helicopters will be grounded. • Engine 35, serving University City, will be blacked-out and grounded. • Close the La Jolla night crew lifeguard stations. • Eliminate non-summer lifeguard services in North Pacific Beach.

Park & Recreation Department: • Close city pools, including the Swanson Memorial Pool in the University City area. • Reduce ranger staff. • Eliminate after-school, teen programs. • Reduce hours of operation in all recreation centers by 50 percent. Close nine recreation centers, two visitor centers and two gyms.

Library Department: • Permanent closure of two facilities, with a possibility of this affecting University Community Library. • Rolling brown-outs at all branches, including a reduction in services, programming and books.

Public Works Department: • Reduce pothole, street light and sidewalk repairs. • Stop refuse collection for 6,500 small businesses.

DeMaio drew many rounds of applause from the crowd, support for Gloria’s position was less apparent, suggesting that Prop D may be a tough sell — in La Jolla, at least. Gloria pointed to the $72 million budget deficit he said the city would face if the tax isn’t enacted. He said without Prop D fire stations will have more brownouts, police stations will shrink permanently and road repairs will cease. Ann Kerr Bache, a Town Council board member, expressed concern that the recent cuts to firefighting, libraries and other significant entities are intended to scare people into voting for a tax increase.

Former coach pleads guilty to lewd act charges BY NEAL PUTNAM | VILLAGE NEWS A former girls’ volleyball coach at La Jolla Country Day School has pleaded guilty to two counts of performing a lewd act upon a 12-year-old girl who attended a volleyball camp where the coach was also working. Xia Wei Li, 29, of Pacific Beach, pleaded guilty Oct. 12 before San Diego Superior Court Judge Theodore Weathers, who set sentencing for Nov. 16. Li pleaded guilty just days before the girl would have testified against

him in a preliminary hearing. Deputy District Attorney Dan Link said Li faces a maximum term of 10 years in prison, and probation has been ruled out. “It’s mandatory prison,” Link said. The victim is from San Bernardino and was molested July 21 at the camp which was sponsored by the University of San Diego from July 19-22. The victim told her parents about the molestation on July 25, and a report was taken by San Bernardino’s sheriff ’s depart-

ment, which forwarded the investigation to San Diego police. The girl was examined at Rady Children’s Hospital. Li was arrested Aug. 4 outside his residence on Oliver Street. He was the junior varsity girls’ volleyball coach at La Jolla Country Day School, starting in 2007, and was scheduled to be the coach at the school this season. Li remains at the George Bailey Detention Facility, and an immigration hold prevents him from posting bail, according to jail records.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Kudos to all at Ark Thank you for the well-deserved praise of Ark Antiques for Animal Charities. Kudos to all at Ark for working so hard on behalf of the animals — as well as providing great, guiltless shopping for their clientele. What’s better than purchasing a unique Venetian latrine while helping the animals at the same time?! The Spay Neuter action Project (SNAP) has been a beneficiary of Ark’s generosity since its opening. Not only have they granted many thousands of dollars in support of our Neuter Scooter clinics, but Ark is a Great Dane sponsor of the La Jolla Pet Parade — a benefit for SNAP. Thank you, Ark, for being such a great and giving heart for various animal charities in San Diego County.

Maybe John Lennon would have written an even better song than “Imagine,” to help us get through these times where it keeps getting worse. People ask if this is the best we can do as Americans? Are these the best candidates we can produce for governor of California? Are these the best senatorial candidates? Are we ready to vote for a proposition on legalizing marijuana, Prop 19, knowing full well that the federal government won’t allow it? I think I know how Lennon would vote on this one, if he were with us and lived in California.

the city’s sales tax by a half-cent for the next five years is a must for this team or else it’s death to libraries, park and rec, pothole repair and fire pits. If it passes, the city will collect an additional $102 million. And San Diego’s reward for the voters in favor of Prop D? No cuts, of course. In a Union Tribune article, Councilman Carl DeMaio is quoted as saying: “Halloween has come early in San Diego … They’re trying to scare people into giving money. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize that the ghoulish screenplay has been written by a bunch of political consultants and they’re using city staff.” Whom do you believe before you make your vote? Is the scary scenario a political tool?

challenged? Why is it the libraries, park and rec, fire and police always take the first hit. Emotionally, the voter is directly impacted when a library is shuttered, a swimming pool is closed and a rec center hangs out a “closed” sign. The popular fire pits are also on the chopping block. Is the term “efficient government: an oxymoron? Why was there a planned budget town hall meeting (Oct. 18 at University City High School) instead of a debate with Councilman DeMaio and Councilman Faulconer presenting their arguments against Proposition D? The lineup for the budget town hall meeting included Chief Operating Officer Jay Goldstone, Chief Financial Officer Mary Lewis, Deputy Chief Operating Officer of Public Works Dave Jarrell, Police Chief William Lansdowne, Fire Chief Javier Mainar, Library Director Deborah Barrow and Park and Recreation Director Stacey LoMedico to discuss proposed changes to the city’s Fiscal Year 2012 budget with the community. These city staffers, under the direction of Mayor Sanders and City Council supporters, probably not Carl DeMaio and Kevin Faulconer, will not need scary Halloween music to accompany their story telling. These cuts would frighten any tax-paying

San Diegan: closure of two libraries, rolling brownouts for the rest of the libraries, indefinite closure of 12 of 13 public pools, nin rec centers, two visitor centers, two gyms.

Assault suspect arrested on bench warrant Amier Rocky Issa, 33, of La Jolla, was arrested in Las Vegas Oct. 14 after a San Diego judge issued a nobail bench warrant. Issa failed to show up Oct. 6 to hear the guilty verdict against him in his assault trial in which a man said Issa slashed his face with a knife in 2008. Issa fled to Nevada, but was tracked down by members of the Fugitive Task Force in Las Vegas, where his parents live, said sheriff’s Sgt. Russell Moore. Moore said Issa

will be brought back to San Diego. 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 on Oct. 6. San Diego Superior Court Judge Joseph Brannigan waited several hours for Issa to show up, and read the verdict in absentia. 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. Serrato received 28 stitches. Issa faces seven years in prison and a charge of failing to appear in court. — Neal Putnam


increase the sales tax by a half-cent under the condition it completes 10 financial reforms. Goldstone noted during his presentation that the passage of Prop D would possibly generate $102 million annually. Despite criticism from town hall attendees regarding the pension issues, Sanders said the city’s general fund budget was consis-

The city of San Diego will soon see the addition of a ninth City Council District, added to keep council members from deadlocking in 4-4 votes, and some community members hope the redistricting process will bring La Jolla into a single district. The current district map splits La Jolla in two. Most of the community is under the jurisdiction of District 1 Councilwoman Sherri Lightner, with a small southeast portion belonging to Kevin Faulconer’s District 2. Today at 1 p.m., San Diego’s newlyappointed Redistricting Commission will meet for the first time at City Hall, located at 202 West C St., and La Jollans have an opportunity to be part of the process. La Jolla Town Council President Rick Wildman said the tiny part of La Jolla that Faulconer has is not the focus of his entire district. “You can’t break up a community like that,” said Wildman, who has lived in La Jolla for 31 years. “If La Jolla is going to be two districts, divide it equally. But it makes more sense to be in one

tently being reduced due to a down economy. “We’ve made $57.3 million less this year in tourism taxes, property taxes and franchise fees,” Sanders said. The “No on D” ballot argument claims Prop D is a “blank check sales tax with no guarantees on how the money will be spent,” while “Yes on D” ballot argument claims “revenue from Proposition D will help maintain and restore essential city services such as fire, paramedic, police, library hours and pothole repair, end fire station brownouts, and help improve 911 emergency response times.”



district.” Both Wildman and Bird Rock Community Council President Joe Parker said they’d like to see La Jolla fall under a single district, although their organizations have not officially taken positions on the matter. The part of Bird Rock that’s in District 2, said Parker, includes only Bird Rock Elementary, the neighboring athletic field and five homes. Joe LaCava, who chairs the La Jolla Community Planning Association, said he’d like to see La Jolla be unified into one district, mainly so La Jollans can clearly understand who their council member is. He also said it would allow La Jolla’s councilmember to be more concentrated in his or her efforts. On the other hand, LaCava said, if a particular issue is very important to La Jolla, having two councilmembers representing the community may mean having more representation on the council as a whole. The creation of a redistricting commission came in 1992, after the San Diego City Council drew some controversial lines and voters changed the city charter to put redistricting in the hands of an independent panel of citizens.

This year’s seven-member Redistricting Commission was appointed — not elected — on Oct. 1 by two retired Superior Court judges, who chose from 51 applications and nominations. According to the city charter, the judges “shall appoint women and men who will give the Redistricting Commission geographic, social and ethnic diversity, and who, in his or her judgment, have a high degree of competency to carry out the responsibilities of the Commission.” The charter also states that commissioners should have “a demonstrated capacity to serve with impartiality in a nonpartisan role.” There are no La Jolla residents on the panel. The last round of redistricting took place in 2001, and controversial issues included unifying gay communities in City Heights and Asian communities in Claremont, as well as grouping coastal areas with common environmental interests. “There are going to be a lot of interest groups coming into play,” said LaCava. “What’s happened in the past is the people who show up have a greater influence.” Diego’s financial problems. DeMaio said citizens need to “demand details” of the proposition and “demand guarantees.” “I’m a businessman, and many of you are business people,” said DeMaio. “I’m sure you all read contracts carefully. But when you read this contract, you’ll find that nobody in their right mind would sign it if their money were at stake.”

If I have seen a good movie or read an interesting article, that event becomes finite, it has no further life. Whereas by discussing it with someone, it continues a life of its own. No, it does not work to call a friend, because this is not a one-time happening. It is the dozens of things that happen, a conversation with someone, a walk on the beach, all end with a thud. I miss the continuity of recall — the “remember when …” that is now gone. The spouse cannot be replaced, but maybe a best friend, a sibling, a grown child, a parent if still alive, can be part of an ongoing conversation that takes place at least once a day, if not more frequently. Having not had a best friend since my husband was it, nor children in my time zone, I feel very strongly the need to find a kindred spirit. Right now — not only is there no one who knows what I do, where I go, or what I think — no one cares. On one hand, I am surrounded by friends. On the other, there is no real intimacy with anyone. It is difficult to forge this kind of friendship in one’s later years —without a common background of having known each other for decades. Yet it must be attempted. Probably, I should try to find a widow or widower who is willing to spend time together and talk on the phone when needed, someone with shared interests who can become a real friend. That is my new homework. A friend mentioned going online: “Looking for a friend, male or female,

someone to share a meal, go to a movie, take a walk, but mostly to talk on the phone every day about that day’s events, what each had seen, read, experienced.” This is what most single people living alone miss most — the sharing of one’s daily life. Some of my single women friends form groups to go

together to concerts and plays and to travel or play bridge on a regular basis and know about each other’s lives. Some of my friends have grown children they talk to every day or a sibling or someone they grew up with or went to school with whom they share a history. SEE FRIENDSHIP, Page 9


Even though I live in a retirement community, and there are certainly enough single women here, my husband was my best friend and our friends were all couples. I never made the effort to have a single person as a best friend, someone with whom there is real intimacy. This is a common problem. And what is missing from my life is intimacy. It means being willing to be vulnerable with another person. And vulnerability means not only sharing secrets that if revealed could be harmful, but also becoming known — including all of the embarrassing thoughts, silly fantasies, guilt of past mishaps, pride of accomplishments, disappointments, hopes, and fears — the totality of what makes a human being whole. Being known, warts and all, and still being accepted and not judged, given honest feedback and being cherished are all ingredients of true friendship, as they were the ingredients of the marriage I’m mourning. So, to ward off loneliness, one has to be willing to become known as well as to know and accept that other. The trick then is to find a person with whom this can be achieved. I wrote a poem to express this dilemma:

‘Conundrums’ I can’t allow myself to be known unless I can trust the man I’m with I can’t trust him unless I know him I can’t know him until I know how he responds to me he won’t know how to respond until he knows me But he can’t allow himself to be known unless he can trust the woman he’s with he can’t trust me unless he knows me he can’t know me until he knows how I respond to him I won’t know how to respond until I know him But we can’t allow ourselves to be known… By Natasha Josefowitz, Ph.D.





SPORTS Vikings fall to Point Loma in league opener BY LEE CORNELL | VILLAGE NEWS

UCHS STARTS A NEW STREAK University City running back Parris Jordan carries the ball against Morse on Oct. 15. Jordan scored the game-winning touchdown as the Centurions beat Morse 118 in the Central League matinee to win their third game in a row. Prior to this win streak, University City had lost 22 games in a row — a streak that dated back to 2008 and included a winless campaign last year. The Centurions (3-3, 2-0 Central) now sit atop their league tied with Coronado and play at San Diego (3-2-1, 0-2) on Friday, Oct. 22 at 6:30 p.m. ANTHONY GENTILE | Village News

‘BISH BOWL’ VICTORY The Bishop’s School’s Alec Fisher gains rushing yardage during a 21-10 victory against visiting Bishop High School of Bishop, Calif. on Oct. 8 at L a Jolla High’s Edwards Stadium. The battle between the two teams has become known as the “Bish Bowl.” The Bishop’s School plays Francis Parker at La Jolla High at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 22. DON BALCH | Village News

Hosting Point Loma, La Jolla High hung tough for the better part of 3 1/2 quarters, but ultimately the result was painfully familiar on Oct. 15. The Vikings dropped a hardfought 21-7 decision at Edwards Stadium. “We competed a little bit better,” said La Jolla head coach Rey Hernandez. “We went in (to the locker room) down 7-0 at halftime but we couldn’t play consistently on defense in the second half.” In the first half, the Vikings (0-6, 01 Western) played solid defense. They limited the Pointers (4-2, 1-0) to just one score, which came on a two-yard run by quarterback Thomas Mize with 6:39 left in the opening frame. It looked like the Pointers might add to their lead later in the quarter when they drove down to the La Jolla 14yard line and decided to go for it on a fourth and three. But Viking defensive lineman Trevor Shelburne was up to the task as he clogged the middle and stopped the intended run short of a first down. “I got blocked by the center,” Shelburne said. “He blocked me down to the left so I spun out to the right and got an arm on him and my backers flew up and made the stop.” The Pointers continued to pound the ball on the ground in the second half. They succeeded in doubling their lead when Jaivon Griffin broke loose for a 31-yard scamper into the endzone to make it 14-0. “We had to get them out on that first drive and that was probably the turning point of the game,”

La Jolla defenders Mark Polland (45) and Josh Kilmer meet Point Loma quarterback Thomas Mize at the end of a run during the Vikings’ 21-7 loss to the Pointers on Oct. 15. SCOTT HOPKINS | Village News

Hernandez said. La Jolla was able to get back into it in large part due to the playmaking abilities of wide receiver Vincent Cheng. Late in the third quarter, the quick-footed junior blew past the secondary and reeled in a long pass from quarterback Cory Wagner before getting tripped up after a 47-yard gain. “I caught it and I started stumbling forward. I was trying to regain my balance and he just caught me from behind,” said Cheng, who racked up 121 yards on four catches. Wagner finished the drive by connecting with wide receiver Bobby Hill in the back of the endzone for a 10-yard touchdown with 11:46 left in the fourth quarter, cutting the deficit in half. “I ran a cross and I was wide open,”

Hill said. “He (Wagner) told me the play before, ‘Same play, it’s open,’ so I just ran it and it was wide open.” The Pointers all but sealed the deal when Griffin weaved his way for a nine-yard score with 4:59 left in the game to make it 21-7. The contest marked the initial Western League game for both teams. The Vikings’ final four games are all against league opponents starting with a road match against Hoover High School at 3:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 22. “We have four league games left and we’ve got to try and win two games,” Hernandez said. “I’ve seen Hoover play. They’ve got a new program and a new head coach. It’s a good staff but I think we can compete with the teams in our league.”

The poignant female images in Jan J. Beran’s paintings are seductive, beguiling and haunting. WILL BOWEN | Village News

Essence of the goddess A gaze not toward physical beauty, but moral character BY WILL BOWEN | VILLAGE NEWS

Jan J. Beran paints images of enchanting women such as these works of art on display at Galeria Jan, located at 1250 Prospect St. WILL BOWEN | Village News

Jan J. Beran, the featured artist at Galeria Jan, 1250 Prospect St., likes to paint women — primarily with oil on wood — but not just any woman. Beran is after an illusive emanating Mona Lisa-like image of a woman who embodies the essence of the goddess, or the female deity — a Madre Deus who watches over man and is in no little pain seeing what mankind is doing to himself. Beran’s female image has its roots in the religious icons of the Orthodox Christian Church, especially images of Mary, which Beran grew up with in the Balkans. Beran’s paintings of women are deep, dark,

rich and beautiful. They are the product of a cameraman’s eye for visual beauty, but a cameraman who has filmed wars in Lebanon, Israel and the Balkans. Likewise, the eyes of Beran’s women are particularly poignant. They seduce you. They beguile you and they haunt you. They look at you asking: “Who you are?” “What you are doing?” “What kind of a world are you creating for my children?” This is the timeless symbolic role of woman as evaluator — as the mother, the cheerleader, the wife and the nun. At the most primitive level, a child only knows itself through the image it sees of itself in the mirror of its mother’s eye. In the West, it is popular to speak of woman as the object of man’s “gaze.” Men find visual pleasure in examining the beautiful but passive woman as an object. But Beran has reversed this dynamic in a move of defamiliarization, making the active man the SEE BERAN, Page 14

‘More sophisticated’ Spike & Mike runs through Nov. 27 Children over 8 welcome to cartoon fest BY CLAIRE HARLIN | VILLAGE NEWS Since the 1980s, La Jolla’s Museum of Contemporary Art has hosted a number of premieres featuring then up-and-comers such as Tim Burton, Mike Judge and John Lassiter, who have since become big names in the cartoon industry. But those animation pioneers haven’t always been famous — they had to be discovered by producers like Craig “Spike” Decker. “With that pedigree and track record, we are now presenting new people who are just as talented, people who we think will be superstars,” said Decker, whose second year of “A New Generation of Spike & Mike Animation” opened Oct. 16 at the La Jolla Museum of Contemporary Art. Spike and Mike Animation has gained worldwide notoriety for its

“Sick & Twisted” festival, and “New Generation” came to fruition when Decker started compiling film submissions that were impressive, but didn’t fit into the “Sick & Twisted” category. This year’s production, which runs through Nov. 27, is a compilation of 21 films chosen from more than 500 submissions. The 90-minute production features filmmakers from all over the world, and Decker said it’s a bigger hit — and “more sophisticated” — than “Sick & Twisted.” “I’ve done this all my life and this is truly a masterpiece,” he said. “To see it at the museum with their big highresolution projection and acoustics — it’s just superb.” Notable for their amazing artistic value, brilliant humor and everything SEE CARTOON, Page 14

SOCIETY D’Vine wine, KPBS’ 50th and a very Nice Guy 12



Starry, starry nights

with Vincent Andrunas Every charity has avid supporters, but Walden Family Services seems to attract truly passionate volunteers. It’s a foster-family agency dealing with many mentally and physically disabled children. Kids like that can tug especially energetically at one’s heartstrings, and California has about 70,000 young people in foster care. Walden’s annual Wine D’Vine fundraiser was held at the Estancia La Jolla again this year, drawing a big crowd. Part of the attraction was the great food and wine. Participating restaurants included Truluck’s, Manhattan, Estancia’s own El Adobe and Pamplemousse Grille (from which came a huge, rich paella), while a lavish dessert buffet satisfied every sweet tooth in the joint. Seven top Napa Valley wineries supplied sublime libations, while live and silent auctions elicited enthusiastic bids and pledges from the generous guests. ••• The Lodge at Torrey Pines was the elegant venue for a 50th anniversary gala for KPBS, the favorite TV (and radio) station of many San Diegans. The celebration’s 1960s theme was evident in beautifully restored automobiles from the era displayed in the

entry drive, and echoed in clips of the station’s early broadcasts and the costumes and hairdos of many guests. Newcomers’ appreciation of the Lodge’s exceptional cuisine began with the hors d’oeuvres served at the reception and continued at dinner, which featured the most perfectly-prepared bacon-wrapped filet mignon imaginable. NPR White House correspondent Scott Horsley (who started at our local station) was emcee. He introduced KPBS general manager Tom Karlo, who promised that the broadcaster would remain at the forefront of television and digital media for at least another 50 years. Stephen Weber, president of SDSU (where KPBS began), gave a welcoming address, and PBS President Paula Kerger (who’d flown out from Washington) called it one of the greatest stations in the country. Irwin and Joan Jacobs, along with Darlene Shiley and her late husband, Donald, were inducted into the KPBS Visionary Hall of Fame. Dessert followed, and an enthusiastic live auction. Partygoers then returned to the reception area, transformed into a groovy 1960s dance club. NRG played for dancing, with four singers doing a convincing tribute to The Supremes and performing all their greatest hits. Guests received peace sign pendants with certificates attesting that they were made of wire from the fence surrounding the 1969 Woodstock festival. ••• Scientist, engineer, entrepreneur and philanthropist Peter Farrell was named Nice Guy of the Year (NGoY) at the Nice Guys’ recent fundraiser,

joining some exceptionally prominent San Diegans. For 31 years, the organization has extended a “hand up — not a hand out,” to people in need, helping them back up on their feet to lead full, productive lives. Peter didn’t know what a “Nice Guy” was, but found out he was one when Robert Horsman and other members told him he’d been selected for the award. “You’ve made an awful mistake,” he said modestly, with his characteristic humor. The event began with cocktails and hearty conversation. Before dinner, the 52-member Marine Band San Diego marched in impressively and gave a rousing concert. Tag-team emcees Kimberly Hunt and Billy Ray Smith introduced the well-educated Farrell (four degrees; two doctorates — and the smarts to be very funny), whose entertaining acceptance speech noted the group’s zero-overhead fiscal policy. A comedic “Nice Guys Movie” showed him in compromising — but contrived — situations. 2009 NGoY Conrad Prebys formally presented the award, and the evening ended with The Heroes playing for dancing.

La Jollan gives piece of Spanish history to UCSD BY CLAIRE HARLIN | VILLAGE NEWS Longtime La Jollan Alfonso de Bourbon has given a unique gift to the University of California, San Diego — an authentic map of the United States that details the exploration of Spanish conquistadors from 1512 to 1825. The map, signed by King Juan Carlos of Spain, was given to de Bourbon in 1983 by the late Alejandro de Muns, who was a Spanish lawyer and importer. De Bourbon said the map is of a “very limited edition” and the Spanish king and his wife presented another existing copy to former U.S. President Gerald Ford in 1976 in commemoration of the U.S. bicentennial. De Bourbon’s gift, pre-

sented earlier this month, was made in honor of both Columbus Day and Hispanic Heritage Month. Bourbon is of Spanish decent, but was born and raised in Switzerland and studied in France. He has resided in La Jolla for 35 years. In 1982, he helped petition the San Diego City Council to adopt the Spanish city of Alcalá de Hernares as a sister city in conjunction with the Sister Cities International program. Founded by former U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower, the program is meant to promote peace and build international relations. The map shows landmarks, explorers and a network of arrows illustrating where the conquistadors once voyaged centuries ago.

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

“Just looking at the 16 states where the conquistadors were — it’s worth a thousand words.” Alfonso de Bourbon

CONTINUED FROM Page 11 object of the passive woman’s gaze. But the woman’s gaze is not toward physical beauty, but toward moral character. Beran was born in 1954 in Sarajevo, Bosnia to an artistic family. His father was a TV cameraman and a director, his mother a sculptor. At an early age, Beran gained notice from the school fathers and from his mother for a life-size sculpture he made from mud in the children’s school yard. Having recognized his artistic abilities, his mother gave him complete freedom to remodel their house, which he did with a fervor. Eventually, Beran earned a BA in TV journalism from Sarajevo University. In the process, he spent considerable time mingling with

intellectuals and artists who frequented the old part of Sarajevo. Currently, Beran works as a special effects cameraman for Camera Control, Inc. in Santa Monica and Crystal Pyramid Productions in San Diego. He has worked on the movies “Avatar,” “Spiderman,” “Matrix,” and “The Aviator” (for which his company won an Oscar for Best Special Effects). Beran likes to paint to express himself and to relax. When he is painting, he often listens to rock ‘n’ roll music, such as The Rolling Stones or Led Zeppelin. Many of his paintings, such as “Crosstown Traffic” and “Communication Breakdown,” are named after famous rock songs. Beran said he is very proud that he recently sold two of his paintings to the prestigious Dubi Shiff Art Gallery in Tel Aviv, Israel, and this is a major recognition of his artis-

tic stature. Beran’s message to the people of La Jolla is, “Express yourself! Art is a fantastic way to express your thoughts and feelings.” Beran’s wife, Biljana, who runs Galeria Jan, was trained to be a medical doctor. She has been with Beran for the past 29 years, supporting and encouraging his artistic pursuits. She even makes his frames which are very fine, varnished in deep brown colors and artistic in their own right. The couple originally met at the 14th Olympic Games in Sarajevo in 1981, where Beran was filming for television. “All of Jan’s paintings have a story. Every painting in the gallery is a book of mystery that one reads again and again,” Biljana. For more information visit or call (858) 551-2053.
