CARL DEMAIO My top priority is fixing city finances, restoring services, repairing our roads and getting San Diegans back to work with job creation. I’ll bring people together. As mayor, I will lead by example and create the most open and transparent city government in the nation. I’ll always take a balanced approach. The city continues to fall behind each year on regular maintenance of our roads and infrastructure. The incoming mayor will need to catch up on backlogged infrastructure maintenance estimated at $900 million and cut through regulatory red tape that has stifled

BOB FILNER We need solutions to move our city forward, not political agendas, endless lawsuits and political standoffs. I will make city government work for all San Diegans — not just developers and other special interests — rebuilding aging infrastructure in our neighborhoods and restoring basic city services. • I will create good-paying jobs by making San Diego an alternative energy leader, expanding our port into a maritime center and building an innovation-based economy for the 21st century. • I will improve our schools so every child has



RAY ELLIS As your councilmember, I will focus on restoring community services. I strongly support pension reform and will solve the pension issue. I will get San Diego’s fiscal house in order so that we can bring back library hours, restore neighborhood parks and fix the potholed streets in our community.

LJ Town Council officials vow Christmas parade will go on, but $30,000 still needed BY DAVE SCHWAB | VILLAGE NEWS It’s official: the 55th annual La Jolla Christmas Parade & Holiday Festival will go on. But the La Jolla Town Council, which sponsors the event — taking place on Dec. 2 — and the La Jolla Parade Foundation, which supports it, need the community’s help with sponsorships and donations to make up for funding shortfalls. “There will be a parade,” promised Ann Kerr Bache, parade chair. “But we need to raise more money — about $30,000. We’re hoping for community support so we can continue the tradition.” Inflation and a recessionary economy continue to make fundraising a challenge. Kerr Bache said donations supporting the parade from individuals and companies alike have fallen short this year, while inflation continues to take its toll. In past years, the La Jolla Christmas parade received county grant funding from county Supervisor Pam Slater-Price ($7,500), as well as $5,000 from Supervisor Ron Roberts last year. “Unfortunately, this year we were informed that the grant we applied for requires purchases only — single-year expenditures,” said Kerr Bache. “We used to count on that money to cover the cost of renting safety equipment, barricades, porta-potties, trashcans, a sound system, walkie-talkie equipment etc. — all of which we rent for obvious

sound business practices. By the time we heard from their office and were notified of this it was too late to apply for any other grants.” Kerr Bache said the parade foundation remains optimistic the community will answer the call for Santa and his Christmas colleagues will indeed make an fundraising help. “Typically in a appearance at the La Jolla Christmas Parade and Holiday given year, about 70 Festival, which was in danger of being canceled due to lower-than-normal donations this year.

QuickHits La Jolla High conquering financial woes With public schools battling budget cuts year after year, the Foundation of La Jolla High School is fighting back by reviving its “Conquer the Cuts” fundraising program to counter the challenges ahead. “Budget cuts affecting San Diego city schools like La Jolla High School have become all too familiar. Every school year brings with it a new set of budget cuts and obstacles to surmount,” said Jeff Macelli, president of the Foundation of La Jolla High School. “This year’s campaign will require the support of everyone in our community, from parents to local business owners.” The foundation will maintain all proceeds donated to Counter the Cuts II and distribute funds to the school based on its most immediate needs. Funds raised in the past have gone to new technology, grounds beautification, and restoring and improving athletic fields, the auditorium and other buildings. “This year the foundation has been asked to fund items that historically you would expect your tax dollars to provide: textbooks, classroom equipment, school supplies, campus maintenance and teaching staff,” said Macelli. “The foundation will work hard to make sure that every dollar you contribute goes

directly to continuing the tradition of academic excellence at La Jolla High School.” So far, the foundation has raised $53,000, more than one-third of the way toward its $150,000 goal. “We’re off to a great start, but we still have a long way to go,” he said.

Art & Wine Fest an overwhelming success For two days, masterful works of juried art, the sweet sound of live music and world-renowned libations hit the streets for the fourth annual La Jolla Art & Wine Festival on Oct. 13 and 14 on upper Girard Avenue. This year, the charity-driven festival was successful in raising more than $100,000 from the free event to support underfunded programs at four public La Jolla schools. Including funds raised from this year’s two-day event, organizers of the La Jolla Art & Wine Festival and their community partners have been successful in raising more than $220,000 for art, music, science, physical education, technology and on-site medical care programs at Muirlands Middle School and Bird Rock, La Jolla and Torrey Pines elementary schools over the past four years. — Mariko Lamb SEE BRIEFS, Page 3




Richard James Reichert, loving friend, father and husband Sept. 27, 1962 ~ Oct. 20, 2012 Richard James Reichert was best known for his unwavering passion for life. He was the first person to come to anyone’s aide, offer advice and mentorship. Since his death, we have had so many wonderful people come up and offer condolences and share stories about how Rich had positively affected their lives. The words they spoke will bring back the best memories and even reveal unknown characteristics of him. In his professional career, he was an accomplished Navy man and a journeyman mechanic, but he was so

much more. He was a Christian man who read the Bible every night and loved his family and friends, putting everyone else’s needs in front of his own. He was a strong father and a loving husband; family and friendship were his true core values. Some of his favorite hobbies were bowling and fishing. He was never the best bowler, but he was dedicated to making it fun and used that activity to stay connected with his family. Also, he used the opportunity to foster new friendships. He was also never the best fisherman; in fact he may have the

For too many years city politicians have glossed over the staggering amount of our infrastructure deficit, commonly referred to as “deferred maintenance.” I have a plan that will bring an additional $470 million to infrastructure repairs over five years.

Kerr Bache said there’s a good reason for everyone to contribute to the annual Christmas parade ensuring it will continue for many years to come. “I do it because the kids love it, and because it’s a community event and a 50-plus-year-old tradition,” she said. This year’s major sponsors include Audrey Geisel and the Dr. Seuss Fund, $8,000; June Barrymore Ash, $2,000; the Ellis Foundation, $2,000; and John Donaldson, $1,000. The usual supporters from the

business community are ponying up to adopt floats or bands for $500 and $600, respectively. The La Jolla Village Merchants Association is supporting the parade by sending e-blasts to its members to encourage donations and promote the event. Parade registration is currently open and will close Friday, Nov. 2. Those donating should make their checks payable to the La Jolla Town Council Parade Foundation and mailed to 7734 Herschel Ave., Suite F, La Jolla, 92037.

Trial for slain La Jolla High graduate begins BY NEAL PUTNAM | VILLAGE NEWS The trial in the case of three young men accused of killing 2010 La Jolla High graduate Garrett Berki opened on Oct. 29. Berki was killed during a robbery on May 11, 2011 when he answered an ad for a computer he saw on Craigslist. Berki, 18, of Mission Beach, was shot in his car just minutes after the three men allegedly robbed him and his girlfriend of $640 and their cell phones when Berki drove to Paradise Hills in search of a computer deal. All three defense lawyers conceded in opening statements a robbery was committed, but all insisted the robbery had concluded after they drove away. Berki drove after them to try and locate a car license-plate number to give to police and was shot after both cars turned into a cul-de-sac in Paradise Hills. One of the defense attorneys told jurors the shooting was accidental. The distinction about when the robbery concluded is important because if jurors find Berki was shot during a rob-

bery, the felony murder rule specifies it is first-degree murder for all participants, which is what prosecutor Kristian Trocha is seeking. Attorney Kate Coyne, who represents accused gunman Rashon Jay Abernathy, 18, told the seven-woman, five-man jury that Abernathy held the gun outside a partially lowered window, which was a child safety feature of the stolen Honda they were in. When the driver, Seandell Lee Jones, 19, slammed on the brakes suddenly, that caused the gun to discharge and fatally wound Berki, said Coyne. She described it as “an unintentional firing.” “He didn’t know the gun was loaded. It was accidental, not a premeditated murder,” said Coyne. Only one shot was fired at dusk in the 3000 block of Artemia Way and several neighbors in Paradise Hills testified they heard it. The trio drove off, leaving Berki wounded in the shoulder, but the bullet traveled into his lungs, severing arteries. He died at a hospital a half-hour later, said Trocha.

Jones, Abernathy and Shaquille Kasiya Jordan, 18, left in the stolen car, but it crashed nearby in the 3000 block of Fleming Drive. They fled, but dozens of San Diego police officers with dogs and a helicopter searched the area and arrested them all. Trocha told jurors the $640 was recovered, along with the cell phones. Berki’s cell phone was found in the backpack that carried the supposed computer for sale, he said. The prosecutor said the trio was placed in a holding cell together and “they talk about the robbery and murder,” apparently unaware their words were being recorded on tape. Trocha said the trio talked about how they regretted not shooting Berki’s tires or taking his keys so he wouldn’t follow them. He said they didn’t say anything about regretting Berki was shot. The first witness was Erick Castillo, of Pacific Beach, who told jurors he answered a Craigslist ad for a 17-inch Apple Pro computer on May 5, 2011, and was robbed at gunpoint by two

defendants. Castillo identified Abernathy and Jones as the young men with guns who repeatedly told him they would kill him before he gave them $600. He met them near the Paradise Valley Recreation Center. Trocha told jurors the cell phone number in that ad was the same number that Berki called a week later. “Craigslist cuts out the middle man … without going to the retail outlet,” said Castillo as to why he responded to the ad. Abernathy lived in Paradise Hills, just blocks from where Berki was shot, said Trocha. Jones and Jordan lived in southeastern San Diego. All three men have pleaded not guilty in the trial before San Diego Superior Court Judge Kerry Wells and remain in custody on $5 million bail. Two wore suits and ties and a third wore a vest, which concealed their waist chains. One juror, who failed to show up for jury duty on Monday, was discharged and an alternate juror took his place.

Despite cooling temperatures, county environmental health officials are urging residents to protect themselves from mosquito bites by wearing long sleeves, pants and insect repellant when outdoors, particularly at dawn and dusk, and keeping screen doors and windows closed and in good condition. Officials also ask residents to prevent mosquito breeding by dumping out or removing potential breeding grounds for mosquitoes, like plant saucers, rain

gutters and other backyard water sources. Some San Diego locations are even offering free mosquito fish, which may be used to control mosquito breeding in still water sources nearby. Finally, vector control officials urge residents to report dead birds and green swimming pools to the county at (858) 694-2888.

The La Jolla Country Day varsity girls’ tennis players have taken one match at a time this season with one goal in mind: to win their third consecutive CIF team championship title. After a long season of taking on strong teams, the Torreys brought home the title once again on Oct. 26. The young team overcame its early season struggles with its doubles game and inconsistent results, and players pushed their limits throughout the championships. In the first two rounds, the Torreys took on Clairemont High in the round of 16 and The Bishop’s School in the quarterfinals. Between the two matches, the Torreys only dropped 6 of 36 sets. Although they won easily, the team’s performance was not perfect. Easy errors and lackluster focus plagued some matches, but fortunately, the girls were able to take control and come out ahead. They recognized, however, that they would need to put their best tennis on the line in order to defend their CIF title for the third year in a row.

La Jolla Country Day School swept The Bishop’s School in a Coastal League game played at Country Day on Oct. 26. Above, La Jolla Country Day’s Sage Burmeister races through The Bishop’s School’s defense during the Torreys’ 5134 victory. Burmeister finished with 28 carries for 242 yards and five touchdowns. His runs included a 98-yard kickoff score and a game-clinching 79-yard touchdown. DON BALCH | Village News

During its first four years, it allocates 60 percent of revenues to K-12 schools, 30 percent to repaying state debt and 10 percent to early childhood programs. Thereafter, Prop. 38 allocates 85 percent of revenues to K-12 schools, 15 percent to early childhood programs. It provides K-12 funds on school-specific, per-pupil basis, subject to local control, audits and public input. Arguments for Prop. 38: Proposition 38 makes schools a priority again. It guarantees new funding per pupil direct to every local public school site to restore budget cuts and improve educational results. It prohibits Sacramento politicians from touching the money. Spending decisions are made locally with community input

and strong accountability requirements, including independent audits.

There is a total of $120 billion in higher taxes. Prop. 38 includes no requirements to improve student performance, and it can’t be changed for 12 years, even for fraud. It damages small business and kills jobs. Educators, taxpayers and businesses say no on 38. Opponents: California Chamber of Commerce; California Democratic Party; California Republican Party; California State Sheriffs’ Association; California Taxpayer Protection Committee; San Diego Tax Fighters; Ken Williams, member, Orange County Board of Education; Andrew Wong, member, Pomona Unified School District, Board of Education; California Medical Association * Note: Props 30 and 38 contain conflicting tax-increase provisions. The Constitution specifies that, if two conflicting measures both pass, the one with the most votes will go into effect where it conflicts with the one that receives the lesser number of votes, but that any provisions in the latter that don’t conflict with the winning proposition will still go into effect. If both Prop. 30 and Prop. 38 pass, the propositions specify the following: If Prop. 30 passes with a greater number of votes, nothing in Prop. 38 would go into effect. If Prop. 38 passes with a greater number of votes, the tax-increase provisions of Prop. 30 would not go into effect. In that event, any provisions of Prop. 30 not related to tax increases would still go into effect, such as the “trigger cuts” to expenditures. — Information taken from Visit the website for a full rundown of propositions and candidates on the Nov. 6 ballot.

Ask The Lawyer



My spouse/partner and I have a minor child and one small condo. Do we really need to do any estate planning?


The law of unintended consequences includes having to go through court and spend a fair amount of money on attorneys fees and costs. Depending on how you hold title and the value of the real estate, you will have to file an action in court. The filing Virginia Weber Laskowitz fee is now $435.00 and it goes up often. Estate Attorney Your minor child may inherit part of the home and you will have to set up a guardianship in court for them to hold title to property until they are 18 years old. And yes, there is another filing fee. If you want to sell the home and buy another, you will need a court order to do so and yes, there is another filing fee for that. This will never happen, right? It just happened to a client of mine. A single Dad whose spouse died. Please, do your estate planning because it costs so much less and avoids hassles, challenges and expensive situations. If you get a letter from the Local Records Office – Do not pay!!! This is a scam.

The white-frocked, determined men of test tubes, calipers and meters who log hours of experimental research progress never cease to amaze me — and why shouldn’t they? In one area at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, for instance, they have determined how a pesky cold virus can be a valuable ally in the fight against cancer. In another, they have put together findings that might encourage inroads in dealing with Parkinson’s disease. Of course, most of the discoveries are meshed from research and language adaptable only to laboratory conversation and arrived at with major input from colleagues in other countries. These things take teamwork. According to a study recently released in Cell, adenovirus, a type of cold virus, has developed molecular tools or proteins that allow it to hijack a cell’s molecular machinery, including large cellular machines involved in growth, replication and cancer suppression. Researchers identified the construction of these molecular weapons and found they form a threedimensional web inside cells that traps and overpowers cellular sentries involved in growth and cancer suppression. Findings suggest a new avenue for developing cancer therapies by mimicking strategies employed by the viruses. “Cancer was once a black box,” said

Clodagh O’Shea, an assistant professor in Salk’s Molecular and Cell Biology Laboratory, who led the study. “The key that opened that box was revealing the interactions between small DNA tumor virus proteins and cellular tumor suppressor complexes.” The suggestions may help scientists develop small molecules — the basis for the vast majority of current drugs — capable of destroying tumors by binding and disrupting large and complex cellular components that allow cancer cells to grow and spread. The work was supported by the National Institutes of Health, American Cancer Society, Sontag Foundation, the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation and the Anna Fuller Foundation. INTERNATIONAL INVOLVEMENT By reprogramming skin cells from Parkinson’s disease patients with a known genetic mutation, researchers have identified damage to neural stem cells as a powerful player in the disease. The findings, reported in Nature, may lead to new ways to diagnose and treat the disease. The research team, which included scientists from China and Spain, as well as the University of California, San Diego, and Scripps Research Institute, made discoveries using humaninduced pluripotent stem cells. They found that a common mutation to a gene that produces an enzyme responsible for both familial and sporadic cases of Parkinson’s disease deforms the membrane surrounding the nucleus of a neural stem cell.

“Cancer was once a black box. The key that opened that box was revealing the interactions between small DNA tumor virus proteins and cellular tumor suppressor complexes.” CLODAGH O’SHEA Salk Institute for Biological Studies Damaging the nuclear architecture leads to destruction of these powerful cells, as well as their decreased ability to spawn functional neurons, like the ones that respond to dopamine. The researchers checked their laboratory findings with brain samples from Parkinson’s disease patients and found the same nuclear envelope impairment. “This discovery helps explain how Parkinson’s disease, which has been traditionally associated with loss of neurons that produce dopamine and subsequent motor impairment, could lead to locomotor dysfunction and other common non-motor manifestations, such as depression and anxiety,” said Juan Carlos Izpisua Belmonte, a professor in Salk’s Gene Expression Laboratory, who led the research team. Although researchers say they don’t yet know whether these nuclear aberrations cause Parkinson’s disease or are a consequence of it, they say the discovery could offer clues about potential new therapeutic approaches. — Johnny McDonald is a longtime writer and columnist for the San Diego Community Newspaper Group.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Nobody puts art in a box (Re: “For LJ gallery owner, healing starts with art,” Oct. 25, Page 1) While I honor her philanthropy and agree with her preface that art has healing properties, I challenge Ms. York’s claims that “not all artwork has healing properties,” and that “artwork being painted by a heroin addict won’t have healing properties.” The aesthetic experience of art is subjective to each viewer. The idea that anyone can dictate to others which

artwork is healing or not is a fallacy. Art can be healing for everyone, just as the process of making art is healing in and of itself. To dismiss the capacity of artwork created by a heroin addict to have healing power is narrow. How does having an addiction limit creating art with healing properties? This highbrow idea is an unjust bias. After all, what are these mystical life-saving properties that only non-addicts can produce? If hospitalized, I’d find California

painter and heroin addict survivor Chor Boogie’s “Color Therapy” series to be healing. His dynamic use of bright colors and abstract shapes would keep me entertained and interested while bedridden. Moreover, his paintings would inspire me to create artwork in response to them, whether in the form of a story, poem, song or drawing. I encourage people to keep an open mind and heart.

In my quest to find local fashion, I heard about a brand called Worth of New York. La Jollan Wendy La Grange is the brand’s new director of business development for Southern California, and she invited me to get acquainted with this versatile and beautiful line. Whether you are a working woman or a mom on the go, Worth has something for you, and I was more than a little impressed when I looked through the fall/winter collection. Worth was established in 1991 in New York. The line is sold through agency leaders, not department stores, and features four trunk shows a year — one for each season. What this means is a sample set of the collection is housed at an agency leaders’ home, who meets clients by appointment. The client gets oneon-one personal attention and makes smart buying choices, which allows Worth to make couture-quality garments at a bridge price

Cats, dogs, and seniors Doing it Better By Natasha Josefowitz, Ph.D. Every Friday at 3 p.m., about a dozen dogs have a puppy party at White Sands La Jolla. They congregate with their owners and other dogloving residents on a large lawn for puppy play time. The dogs vary from tiny and young to large and older and everyone gets treats — dogs get biscuits and people get lemonade. It is one more opportunity to encourage seniors to get together and share common interests. It is well known that living with a pet contributes to better health and longer life. Pet owners benefit from reduced blood pressure, and petting your animal releases the chemicals

that lower cholesterol and triglycerides. Current research indicates that even small physical movements increase mental cognition. Being prompted by an animal to bend down to pick it up, fetch a treat or petting it on your lap is a pleasurable way to help keep your brain active and healthy. An animal in one’s life also promotes wellbeing by increasing emotional and psychological stability. Specifically, having a pet decreases stress, depression and anxiety. Pets become part of the family; they provide companionship and help alleviate loneliness. For those who live alone, pets may be the only social lifeline. People talk to their pets and get purrs or wagging tails in response. Having to walk a dog gets a senior out of the house and into encounters with other dog owners and passersby. Pets can be especially therapeutic in dealing with the loss of a loved one or other traumas. For instance, recovery rates from heart attack are better

Residents of White Sands La Jolla celebrate the Halloween season with their pets at a doggy costume party at the retirement community on Oct. 26. Studies have shown that keeping pets can be therapeutic and may help increase mental cognition.

for those who return home from the hospital to a loving pet. Having an animal to take care of makes one feel needed and responsible for another living creature. This reinforces both self-esteem and the value of life. Here at White Sands, we have a few

Fostering young scientists Starry, starry nights

with Vincent Andrunas Eleven years ago, Mary Bradley and Reena Horowitz founded The Fishman Fund to honor Dr. William and Lillian Fishman, founders of what is now the Sanford-Burnham Institute for Medical Research (formerly known as the La Jolla Cancer Research Foundation). Dr. and Mrs. Fishman had begun a tradition of fostering the careers of promising young scientists. As an endowment fund, the Fishman Fund honors this tradition by presenting outstanding Sanford-Burnham postdoctoral fellows with recognition for their accomplishments — and also a financial award — providing both means and incentive to help further their professional development. The fund’s goal is helping young research scientists so they can help the world. Before Mrs. Bradley passed away last year, she asked Jeanne Jones to become co-founder designee. At the annual ceremony and reception held earlier in October, the organization thanked its esteemed advisory board. The five 2012 Fishman Fund Award winners were honored (each SEE SOCIETY, Page 13

SOCIETY Moving Mom and Dad to Assisted Living

Almost everyone hopes as they grow older that they will be able to spend the rest of their lives in their own home enjoying the comfort and memories that go along with having a long life. Sometimes parents tell their adult children “I want to stay in this house forever. Promise me you’ll never put me in a home.” This promise can put undue stress on the children when the parent’s good health begins to change. Joan’s parents, John and Anna, had been married more than fifty years and were doing well. Then Anna began having short-term memory loss and then she broke her hip which put her in a rehabilitation facility for three months. Joan was at a loss of what to do when her mother was ready to leave the facility. She contacted Innovative Healthcare Consultants, a Geriatric Care Management company, who met with the entire family. Even though Anna wanted to stay in her home forever, it wasn’t practical as John could not manage the demands of her illness at home. The nurse at Innovative was able to help Joan find an assisted living home with specialized dementia care for Anna with a senior apartment complex for her dad. It’s working out well. Anna is being safety taken care of and John sees her every day but still can golf and do all the things he loves without the worry of leaving Anna.

Less Invasive NuAge Facelift Available The NuAge Facelift procedure is a minimal incision approach for facial rejuvenation of the lower face and neck. Compared to the traditional facelift the NuAge Facelift is less invasive with quicker recovery time. At our facility the Grossmont Oral & Facial Surgical Center, we take pride in the vast scope of services we offer our patients. With three main focuses of practice: Oral Surgery, Maxillofacial Surgery, and Facial Cosmetic Surgery, we are able to customize a treatment plan for each of our patients. As oral and maxillofacial surgeons, Dr.'s Varboncoeur & Caldemeyer are recognized specialists who are surgically trained in a hospital based residency program for a minimum of four years. There they rotate alongside medical residents in internal medicine, general surgery and anesthesiology, and also spend time in otolaryngology, plastic surgery, emergency medicine and other specialty areas. Their training focuses, though, on the hard (ie, bone) and soft (ie, skin, muscle) tissue of the face, mouth, and jaws. Dr.'s Varboncoeur & Caldemeyer's knowledge and surgical expertise uniquely qualify them to diagnose and treat the functional and esthetic conditions in the maxillofacial anatomical area. For more information about a free consultation, contact the office of Grossmont Oral & Facial Surgical Center .Call 619-463-4486 or go to our website to learn more about this revolutionay procedure at

As always, the awardees are all exceptional postdoctoral researchers in biomedical science. This year’s winners were Tufan Aydogdu, Soda Diop, Mihee Kim, Zhi-Gang She, and Jun Wang. They normally live on relatively small incomes, so their cash awards will be spent on anything from research equipment to personal needs. These young scientists are deeply involved in their work, and quite dedicated. They don’t spend a lot of time socializing, and have only limited opportunities to meet people outside of their labs or relax in luxurious private homes. With that in mind, all the fund’s award winners (from this and previous years) were invited to a beautiful reception and dinner at the sumptuous La Jolla villa of Armi and Al Williams. Like the honored postdocs themselves, nearly every piece of art and furniture in the Williams’ home came from outside the United States. Even the delicious (and beautifully presented) food was prepared and served by a charming Swiss couple; Urs (“Le Chef”) and Ursula Baumann, known for fine catering in La Jolla and elsewhere. The varied foods, fine wines. and congenial atmosphere led to a relaxed, enjoyable evening for all the guests, and many highly-intellectual conversations were shared. The only problem was, nobody wanted to leave.

point. Items can range from $200$1,500, and the fabrics used are milled in the same Italian mills as Gucci, Bottega Venetta, etc. The fall/winter collection is modern, sophisticated and chic. Beautifully knit dresses, sweaters, silk blouses, suede and leather pieces come in colors that are rich and on trend for fall — think berry, mustard yellow, navy, grays and creams. The collection also features color blocking, animal prints and plenty of sparkle for holiday dressing. I’m personally obsessed with the brick shawl cardigan ($598) and liquid gold-metallic organza coat ($998). If you are interested in viewing the fall/winter trunk show, contact LaGrange at (858) 4447348, or the agency leaders for La Jolla directly: Kelli Fales ( and Cristina Schaffer ( They will be making appointments for a trunk show in La Jolla that will run from Nov. 2-8.

Credit Tips to Help You Score the Best Rates Having good credit scores has never been so important when looking to obtain any type of financing these days. If you or someone you know is looking to purchase a home or refinance soon, here are 5 credit tips below that you can use right away to help improve your credit, so you can score the best mortgage rates. Banks are Charging Excessive Fees for Lower Credit Scores Below is a table of Fannie Mae’s "Risk Based Loan Level Price Adjustments" (LLPA’s). These adjustments or fees, take into consideration a buyers credit score and down payment or equity position on a loan scenario. On the left hand side is the amount of points that are charged based on what the credit scores

are. As you see, banks are charging borrowers excessive fees even with good credit scores. For example, on a $400k purchase with 20% down ($320k loan), a buyer with a 675 credit score will pay an extra $8,000 (2.5 points) for the same rate as a buyer with a 740 score. If you do not want to pay the points, the fees are incorporated into the interest rate instead, hence why there are higher rates for lower credit scores. 5 Ways to increase Your Credit Score Fast But sometimes it takes just takes a few credit tweaks to get a buyer or a homeowner from a 675 credit score to a 740 score! So here are 5 tips that you can utilize right away to give your score a boost. Cont’d on page 17

CONTINUED FROM Page 11 after their dogs (there are containers with plastic bags scattered around the property for this purpose) and dogs know not to bark between 1 and 2 p.m. in the afternoon, which is our quiet time. A dog walk with special artificial turf that can be hosed down has recently been installed. And it’s not just dogs. Prince, the Whites Sands house cat at-large, decides every evening which of the cat-loving people here will get to have his presence overnight. He even knows how to open the automatic doors going in and out of the property. There are birds who fly around freely among the trees of the indoor courtyard of the dementia center, and residents own talking parakeets as well as silent goldfish. A veterinarian comes once a month to check on the animals whose owners cannot go out. Our pets are part of the community, benefiting not only their owners, but everyone else. We not only know each other’s children and grandchildren’s names, we know each other’s pets. I always carry a tidbit in my pocket in case I bump into Diego, Fred, Piper, Cupcake, Roxie, Brandy, Rosie, Flower, Mowglie or Abigail. — Natasha Josefowitz taught the first course in the U.S. on women in management and is the author of 19 books. She lives at White Sands La Jolla.

Also, if you’re in very good standing, ask your creditor for a lower rate or higher credit limit. This will increase the gap in the debt you owe versus the credit you have available. Sometimes hinting about closing an account can suddenly bring out the generous spirit of certain card issuers. Give it a try. The worst they can say is no.
