Veterans, their families and those who appreciate the nation’s heroes gathered at the Mt. Soledad Veterans Memorial on Nov. 5 for the memorial’s Veterans Week celebration. The event included former prisoners of war, above, patriotic attire, below, and a dramatic “Missing Man” flight formation, right, by the San Diego T-34 team, which capped off the ceremonies. Louis Zamperini, a World War II veteran and former POW, was honored with a plaque at the memorial. Brig. Gen.

WWI couple memorialized at Mt. Soledad BY MARIKO LAMB | VILLAGE NEWS Two veterans of World War I — Sgt. Arnold Robert Mitchell and Lt. Marguerite Mitchell — have received the gift of a very special view of the coast this Veteran’s Day. The Mitchells have become the first veteran couple from the Great War to be honored with a plaque on the Mt. Soledad memorial wall, according to the manager of the Mt. Soledad Memorial Association. Former District 1 City Councilman Bill Mitchell said he has always wanted to pay tribute to his father’s heroic
actions during the war and his mother’s philanthropic spirit with a memorial plaque. The story behind the commemorative black granite plaque, however, tells more than that. It also tells the story of a forbidden romance between the two, who married in secret while they were both enlisted. Arnold, a combat medic in the 1st Infantry Division, fought in six major battles from 1910 to 1920, earning campaign bars for each. During one particular battle in Soissons, France in
1918, he saved the lives of 13 men by running into waves of gunfire to carry wounded soldiers to safety. Bill recalls his father detailing the scene down to the glisten of Germans’ bayonets and the gruesome extent of soldiers’ wounds. One of the 13 men his father saved was then-Maj. Clarence Huebner, Arnold’s commanding officer, who would later become Lt. Gen. Huebner — a war hero who gained fame for leading the attack on Omaha Beach in Nor-
Arnold and Marguerite Mitchell met and married in secret during World War I. He was a sergeant in the Army and she was a lieutenant and an Army Corps nurse.

CONTINUED FROM Page 1 snuck behind him and fired a Light AntiTank Weapon (LAW) — a powerful rocketpropelled grenade designed to penetrate heavy tank armor — striking Wyatt in his right knee and taking his leg clear off. The projectile continued on through two more of his fellow soldiers, who were taken down with him. “We actually had to duke it out with them a little bit longer after we got hurt, just so they would start to retreat,” he said. After six months of treatment and therapy at Walter Reed Medical Center in Washington D.C., he was finally released home to Colorado where he spent another six months with friends and family, wondering what his next move would be. “There were a ton of transitional people trying to get acclimatized to the civilian world,” he said. “They had suggested an internship at the VA, but at the time, there were other things that I wanted to do.” Wyatt said the most difficult part of the transition was not necessarily losing his limb, but having something he loved to do ripped away from him so quickly. “My biggest thing was that I had found something that I had attached to — something that resonated with me as an individual — and I wanted to do that for a long time. So to have something that you connect with on a deeper level, and then have it literally torn away from you in the same year is kind of difficult to deal with,” he said. “Given the circumstances, I was really lucky to even get out of there alive. I recognized that immediately, but it was that I really found something I liked to do and now the things that I want to do professionally I can’t, so you just have to come to terms with that.” Finally, Wyatt, now 29, took an intern-
ship at the same D.C.-based army medical center that treated him, which eventually turned into a career and a move to San Diego to work in the prosthetics department at the San Diego VA Medical Center in La Jolla. “You can get [any prosthetic] that’s commercially available at the VA,” he said. Wyatt was even recently fitted with a state-of-the-art microprocessor knee that only the Department of Defense and VA can obtain. “It’s basically the newest technology — a later generation of what I have now,” he said. “It’s an upgraded version so I’ll be able to walk up stairs normally and the gait’s a lot smoother.” The best thing about the upgrade? It’s waterproof — a necessary requirement for one of Wyatt’s new hobbies: rowing. “It’s not as limiting as you would think, but you have to have a heart-to-heart with yourself about stuff you can and can’t do, or things that maybe have become such a pain now that you’ve decided to move on,” he said. As a Colorado native, Wyatt said he used to enjoy snowboarding because it was such a “free experience.” “You could just pick your board up, go up on the mountain, and forget about everything that’s going on,” he said. “I can still do it, but it’s such a pain to actually do it. You need extra equipment, and it’s not the same feeling as it used to be.” The injury, he said, has forced him to find other things to do. He has recently picked up rowing in Mission Bay and four-wheeling in jeeps — activities he said he never would have considered if he hadn’t gotten hurt. Despite the injury and changes to his life-

long plans, Wyatt remains positive and said he realizes he was lucky to make it out of the situation alive. At times, however, he wishes he were still able to continue fighting for his country. Veteran’s Day, Wyatt said, cements how good this country is to soldiers returning from war. “Ever since I’ve been home, I’ve been treated so well by everybody,” he said. “It would be very difficult for me to feel bad about anything that has happened to me knowing that these are the kinds of people I was fighting for.”

SDPD’s Northern Division command undergoes restructuring BY NICOLE SOURS LARSON | VILLAGE NEWS The San Diego Police Department (SDPD)’s Northern Division, which includes Pacific Beach, Mission Beach, Mission Bay and La Jolla, welcomed on Oct. 29 its second new commander this year. Capt. Brian Ahearn is well known in the coastal communities, where he served as “beach lieutenant” from October 2005 to January 2008 under then-Northern Division Capt. Boyd Long. The change in command at Northern comes after only nine months and reflects shifting assignments stemming from another senior commander’s retirement.
Northern’s outgoing commander, Capt. Al Guaderrama, has moved over to the coveted assignment of investigations, overseeing units like vice, child abuse, sex crimes, emergency negotiations, narcotics and the Family Justice Center. A friendly man with a broad smile and a quick quip — a tactic often helpful in defusing heated discussions — Ahearn describes himself as “having less hair but more gray” than on his previous Northern Division stint. Locals can expect to see him at community meetings, along with “beach” Lt. Paul Rorrison. The two men
worked together in the department’s Internal Affairs Unit, along with Lt. Randy Jones, Northern’s investigations lieutenant. Promoted to captain in June 2011, Ahearn commanded Eastern Division for only three and half months before departing for the more complex and challenging Northern Division. Long, who is now assistant chief in charge of SDPD’s nine regional commands, said he regretted losing Guaderrama at Northern, but realized Ahearn provided a well-qualified replacement. “I wanted someone to go to North-
ern who understood the complexity of the issues involving alcohol and the beach problems,” Long said. “[Ahearn] has a great working knowledge of the region. I needed someone who could hit the ground running.” When then-lieutenant Ahearn was assigned to La Jolla and the beach communities, he focused on the Children’s Pool seal conflicts while also working behind the scenes — particularly with surfers — to deal with burglaries targeting La Jolla Shores beach users, Long said. Ahearn also handled alcohol-related issues dominating
Capt. Brian Ahearn took over command of San Diego Police Department’s Northern Division on Oct. 29. He is a familiar face in the La Jolla community because he was previously “beach lieutenant” from October 2005 through January 2008, SEE AHEARN, Page 14 attending numerous community meetings.

NEWSbrief Trial opens for 2010 murder of La Jolla man A financial advisor strangled a La Jolla man in a plot to steal $7.5 million from him, a prosecutor told a jury on Nov. 8 as a murder trial opened in San Diego Superior Court. Kent Thomas Keigwin, 61, is accused of killing John G. Watson, 65, in his La Jolla home in June 2010. Keigwin, a certified public accountant, is also charged with the special circumstance of murder for financial gain, identity theft, forgery, burglary and with using Watson’s personal identification. Jury selection began Nov. 7 before Superior Court Judge Fred Link, during which attorneys questioned potential jurors. During opening statements, Deputy District Attorney Sharla Evert said the victim’s fingernails were scraped and DNA from Keigwin was found. Keigwin’s fingerprints were found on an interior doorknob, she said. Evert said Keigwin used Watson’s identification in February 2009 to open an account with Scottrade, an online brokerage firm. She said Keigwin also filed a change of address for Watson to a post office box and created a Yahoo account under Watson’s name. San Diego police officers were investigating Watson’s death three days after his body was discovered when Keigwin showed up at Watson’s residence at 6:30 a.m. in possession of keys to the home, an empty backpack that contained a surgical mask and empty bags, Evert said. Watson was a retired biotech executive and a board member of Tech Coast Angels, an investment group that provides money for startup companies. Keigwin’s attorney, Yahairah Aristy, told jurors the case was about fraud, not murder. “Things are not always what they seem. Listen with your common sense,” she said. Witnesses began testifying Nov. 9 in what is expected to be a three-week trial. Attorneys plan to call 39 witnesses. Keigwin has pleaded not guilty and remains in custody without bail. — Neal Putnam

SPORTS LJHS drops Serra for emotional win 4
THURSDAY · NOVEMBER 10, 2011 LA JOLLA VILLAGE NEWS
BY LEE CORNELL | VILLAGE NEWS Trailing 3-2 in the fourth quarter, La Jolla High School faced a crucial thirdand-goal situation at its opponent’s 1yard line. Viking senior quarterback Bobby Schuman took the snap and pushed through the line into the end zone for what proved to be the gamewinning score. “Guys made plays when we needed them and that was the difference,” said LJHS head coach Rey Hernandez after his team’s 10-3 victory over Serra High School on Nov. 4 at Gene Edwards Stadium. The Vikings (2-7, 1-3) hadn’t won a game since the second week of the season. Besides their pride, they were also playing for former offensive line coach Luis Moya, who passed away one year ago. “It’s a big win for us. We know he’s watching us and we did it for him,” said senior defensive back Chris LaChance. After controlling the ball most of the first half, La Jolla still found itself down 3-0 when an LJHS drive stalled inside the Conquistadors’ 1-yard line just before halftime. It seemed the Vikings just wouldn’t get the break they needed once again. But a heavy downpour, erupting just after the halftime homecoming ceremonies had concluded, was a sign of things to come. LJHS defensive back junior William Geary finally got his team on the scoreboard when he charged through Serra’s line during a punt attempt and blocked the kick through the back of the end
zone, giving the Vikings a safety and a two-point score. “I told my outside linebacker to go outside and I used my speed and it worked out in the timing of the punt block,” Geary said On Serra’s next possession, Geary made another huge play by sacking the quarterback for a 15-yard loss that ended SHS’ best drive of the second half. “I knew they were going to come back to the pass so I stayed in my zone and used my strength to throw him down,” Geary said. On its next offensive possession, La Jolla mounted an impressive drive that included several nice runs from junior tailback Kenneth Martey. But it was Schuman who made the biggest play when he took a snap, snuck around the right side and used his quickness for a 35-yard scamper all the way down to Serra’s 3-yard line. “He’s a good athlete. I think he’s the fastest player on our team,” Hernandez said. “It was an emotional game for them. A lot of good things happened tonight and the stars kind of aligned for us.” After Schuman punched in the game-winning touchdown with 7:50 left to play, Martey added the two-point conversion by blasting through the left side of the end zone. The Conquistadors tried one last desperate drive but were thwarted when LaChance picked off an errant throw to seal the outcome. “I knew the down and distance and I knew they had to make a big play so I dropped back and it came to me,” LaChance said.

Despite pleas, CPA ratifies appeal of project
meeting. Trustee Joe LaCava — who presented the project on behalf of the applicants — said although they informed the immediate neighbors who would be most affected by the project, he was willing to return to DPR to fully hear all of the neighbors’ concerns. “This is a big house, we’re not going to deny that,” said LaCava. He iterated, however, that the size and scale fits that of the La Jolla Farms neighborhood, an area that contains large homes — 20,000-square-feet at minimum — on large three-quarter to one-acre lots. “I think we all recognize that La Jolla Farms is a much different enclave of homes than any other part of La Jolla. It’s a group of homes on very large lots,” he said. “With those larger lots, you get larger houses.” LaCava emphasized the project would be built within the height, FAR and setback requirements as required by its conventional zoning. It will also maintain the public view corridor and will fully respect a coastal access pathway adjacent to the property. Neighbors, on the other hand, disagree, saying the property’s unadmitted below-grade square footage makes the property 30,000 square feet, which is overwhelming for a lot set on a steep, largely unusable slope. LaCava said neighbors have gotten used to seeing the two small properties that have been on the lot for many years. “You can clearly see that this structure — that is built within the setbacks and the height requirements — is going to change what people see from their house,” he said. DPR will review the project on Dec. 13 at 4 p.m.
LJCPA trustees decided to move forward with an appeal of the city Planning Commission’s Oct. 20 decision to grant the property located at 8490 Whale Watch Way a mitigated negative declaration. Trustee Phil Merton argued the project is “simply too big for that location.” “According to the applicant’s calculation of gross floor area, the floor area ratio is 41 percent larger than would be allowed on any other similar lot in La Jolla,” he said. “The applicant’s calculation didn’t include 1,800 square feet of roof deck at the upper floor level. If we consider that, the result in floor area is 60 percent greater than would be allowed anywhere else in the city.” Architect James Brown, who represented the property at the meeting, contested that Merton’s measurement assessments were incorrect. “Everything you told the Planning Commission was completely erroneous,” he said to Merton. “The people at the Planning Commission know that, but you’re giving information as if it is factual, but it is not.” He also iterated the importance of trustees watching the Planning Commission’s hearing before voting on whether or not to move forward with an appeal. “It is really important that you see the content of the hearing if you are going to appeal their finding,” he said. “It was a unanimous decision. They praised our project from the top to the bottom, and they refuted Mr. Merton’s arguments from the top to the bottom.” Despite Brown’s pleas, the LJCPA voted in favor of ratifying the appeal of the environmental documents, Open space receives which was automatically filed by the president because the deadline for backing from CPA Will Anderson, programs managappeals would have passed prior to er for San Diego Canyonlands, prethe CPA’s meeting on Nov. 3. sented the board with a proposal to 10,000 acres of city-owned Large LJ Farms house is dedicate natural open space to a San Diego too large for some Regional Canyonlands Park. neighbors’ tastes “Dedication does two things basiThe Encore Trust residence pro- cally.

Fallen soldiers memorialized in art The family of Lance Cpl. Donald Hogan, who was killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan, will not get their beloved soldier back, but today, Nov. 10, the fallen Marine will be forever immortalized in a lifelike portrait that will be revealed to his family. The American Fallen Soldiers Project is a unique nonprofit service provided by artist Phil Taylor to bring the heart and soul of fallen soldiers back home to their families. Taylor illustrates each individual soldier in a way that fully captures the soldier’s personality and appearance, often bringing comfort to mourning
friends and family members. Some recipients of Taylor’s portraits have said it feels as if their loved one has come home. Others have said the soul of their fallen soldier spills out through the canvas and brings healing to their family. Taylor began the project after providing a portrait for long-time friend whose brother, Capt. Blake Russell, was killed in Iraq. From that point on, he dedicated his time and talent to the project, painting more and more portraits for families in his home state of Texas. “I’m thankful they’ve given me the
even after they are dedicated. There is no additional cost, maintenance requirements or change of management once the land is dedicated, and reversal of any dedicated space would require a two-thirds vote of the people, he said. La Jolla sites that are proposed for dedication include a small parcel of isolated hillside slope on Caminito Muirfield and the La Jolla bike path from Beaumont Avenue and Via Del Norte to Nautilus Street and Fay Avenue, totaling approximately 15 acres in the La Jolla planning area. “We’ve done a very good job at preserving them up until now, but we need to lock them in,” Anderson said. The LJCPA voted to support the San Diego Canyonlands’ proposal to dedicate the La Jolla sites as well as the approximately 10,000-acre citywide endeavor. The organization hopes to have the parcel list thoroughly vetted by the public, completed, and dedicated by August 2012. For more information, visit www.sdcanyonlands.org or call (619) 284-9399.

CONTINUED FROM Page 1 mandy in World War II. “He went out under shell fire and even caught some men in their arms. Some were already dead,” said Bill. “When he got to General Huebner, he was out cold. If he had stayed out there, he would have been killed because the shells were just raining in.” Although Bill said his father should have received the Medal of Honor for that incident, Arnold never pursued it. The fact that he saved those men and served his country was enough, Bill said. “He was never one to pine over the fact that he didn’t get it,” he said. Bill described his father as a man of great courage, the type of person who would “look the devil right in the eye and tell him to get lost.” After being wounded in his sixth and final battle, Arnold was cared for by Lt. Marguerite Dunn, an Army Corps nurse, at the Little Rock, Ark. Army Hospital. It was there the pair first fell in love, but they had to keep their marriage a secret because it was forbidden for an officer to fraternize with an enlisted man. His father, Bill said, was shell-shocked for years after the war. Having a wife who understood the stress of war, how-
ever, was a relief. “What better wife could he have than a nurse?” he said. Marguerite was a proactive leader for many issues in the community. She was one of the early advocates of women’s rights, led anti-drug efforts and worked as a circuit school nurse where she also counseled young students. “She used to gather up my brothers and sisters and me around Christmas and Thanksgiving to deliver a big bag of groceries to those in need,” Bill said. Generosity and patriotism were values that were passed down in the Mitchell family — values that have carried over into the lives and careers of their sons and daughters. The Mitchells’ eldest daughter, Margaret, served as a trained nurse for the American Red Cross during World War II, while another daughter, Elizabeth, served in the WWII WAVES — a division of the U.S. Navy that consisted entirely of women — and sons Bill and Arnold Jr. served in the Air Force and Army during the Korean War. The Mitchell family is one that knows about patriotism. “We always flew an American flag and ate apple pie,” Bill said. “Our family is proud of our mother and father, and we totally support our troops of all wars, and we regard them all as heroes.”

Ask The Lawyer Question:
Can I put my children on my deed and avoid probate?
Yes, however you could be causing more problems rather than making the transfer another way. The first issue is that whomever you put on title might have creditors that go after the asset. The creditor can also put a lien on the property. A car accident where your child is Virginia Weber under-insured can cause you to have to sell Laskowitz your home for your children’s liabilities. This TRUST LAWYER would be a travesty and is entirely avoidable. Another issue is that the taxes on any eventual sale of the property will be higher. This is because the basis for tax purposes transfers to the person that you put on the title, instead of it getting a step up in basis to the value when you die. This could cost your children tens of thousands of dollars in extra income taxes or capital gains. If you are unclear about this, give me a call for an appointment. The much better way to do this to avoid those issues and probate costs is to have a living trust. Your children will still receive the home with a minimum of costs and expenses. Did you know that I give free in person consultations? Call my office to set one up.

We bestow our thanks to all American veterans on Nov. 11 — a day once known as Armistice Day, which painted the war to end all wars as prophetically designed toward world peace. Since a dictator’s resurrection of armaments in the late 1930s, there has been little pause for peace. We’re confronted now with a fresh war [Iraq and Afghanistan] that has lasted 10 years. As we must, men and women are sent overseas for new conflicts in lands where people live under a different set of principles. Since World War II, the ranks of veterans have steadily grown. It’s become their job to keep terrorists from touching our shores. Let’s take time to comprehend the reasons we acknowledge this day. After World War II, many returning servicemen didn’t talk about their experiences. Their concerns were directed toward resumption of civilian life, or to find a job or go to school. Years later, maybe at reunions, they might retell war stories. Author/commentator Tom Brokaw referred to World War II veterans as members of the Great Generation. The generations since are just as important. Since World War II, the conflicts that followed produced new legions of veterans. Inexplicably, those who fought in Vietnam were ignored. Veterans’ hospitals are filled with the maimed, both physically and mentally. Let’s not forget them.
As conflicts continue in Iraq, Afghanistan and other places, the prevalence of soldiers coming home with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) becomes a major concern for our society. Veterans’ hospitals are overrun with these emergencies. Anywhere from 60 percent of veterans are diagnosed with PTSD. While the disease was first named in the aftermath of the Vietnam War, very little headway has been made toward treatment. In San Diego and Oceanside, veterans’ villages have been established to give continued assistance. They extend help to all needy and homeless veterans and to their families by providing housing, food, clothing, substance-abuse recovery and mentalhealth counseling, job training and jobplacement services. Each year, San Diego conducts “stand down” days near San Diego City College to assist other at-risk veterans in need. Unemployment is a chief problem facing the United States as the country attempts to avoid mistakes of the Vietnam War era and ensure that post9/11 veterans readjust to civilian life successfully. All levels of government — and a growing number of for-profit and nonprofit organizations — are trying to help former service members move from boots into suits. But they are fighting a nine percent national unemployment rate — 12 percent in California — and a flood of fresh out-of-work civilians as the military cuts its numbers after the peak of two wars. At 9.8 percent in August, unemployment among young veterans is higher than the national average. So, let’s take a deeper look at the reasons why we honor Veterans Day. — Johnny McDonald is a regular contributor and writer for the San Diego Community Newspaper Group.
San Diego Rotary celebrates 100 years The service organization, which opened its San Diego chapter a century ago, opened its door to women 75 years later shortly after. Josefowitz responded with a flat-out “no.” “It was an old boys’ club,” she said. “I didn’t want to be the only woman in there.” E v e n t u a l l y, Josefowitz caved and told the club that if they could Natasha Josefowitz, second from right, raises a glass — along muster up four with the other men and women of Rotary Club 33 — to the more women, she centennial birthday of the club.

And I think it’s more family-oriented ‘What are you plotting?’” The San Diego chapter, however, now than it was, and a lot of our comproved to be much more accomodating mittees focus on youth and family.” As for relations between the male than clubs in other places, Josefowitz said. Some clubs lost male members and female members, Josefowitz said once women were allowed to join. And the “old boys’ club” is no longer. “All the members are highly educatas for Rotary Club 33, the atmosphere in the club has decidedly changed in ed and work at high levels of business,” the quarter-century since women first she said. “So the men have this opportunity to work with really bright joined its ranks.

BY KENDRA HARTMANN | VILLAGE NEWS Rotary Club 33, San Diego’s chapter of the international service organization, began 100 years ago at the newly minted U.S. Grant Hotel. The club would eventually become one of the organization’s five largest worldwide chapters, with 550 members. Seventy five years later, women were allowed to cross the threshold and join businessmen and San Diego movers and shakers as Rotarians. Natasha Josefowitz, Ph.D., who taught the first college course in the United States on women in management and who is the author of 19 books (as well as a La Jolla Village News columnist), was among the first five women to enter the Rotary when it finally offered membership to the “fairer sex.” Josefowitz caught the eye of the Rotary when she was asked to give a presentation at one of its luncheons 25 years ago. She had recently published her bestseller, “Path to Power: A Woman’s Guide from First Job to Top Executive” and had given interviews on “Larry King Live” and the “Dr. Ruth Show,” among others, and the local Rotary club wanted to hear her speak. She spoke on issues of women in power, and received more than a few heckles and off-color jokes from the audience. Her message, however, was heard loud and clear. The club asked her to join as its first female member
LETTER TO THE EDITOR No seals at ‘seal beach’ = fewer tourists I was down in San Diego with outof-town visitors recently and found the seals were gone and people were on the beach where the seals used to be. Seals were bobbing about in the water a ways out, looking in as if they had been evicted from their home. Turns out, they have. I met a woman at the beach that day who grew up in the area. She told my group that the seals were there first. People built the Children’s Pool and the already-existing groups of seals just took advantage of it. Smart seals. However, even with miles upon miles of beaches in San Diego Coun-
ty, apparently the seals can’t have that tiny patch of beach — the tiny patch that has brought thousands of visitors, tourists and locals to the La Jolla area. I myself, originally from Tennessee and temporarily working in the state, have visited the seals many times, and I always brought people with me. We would get coffee, walk the beach to see the seals, get dinner and head home after a bit of shopping. On average, a day in La Jolla would mean spending at least $100 per person, if extensive shopping was not involved. If it was, then upwards of $500 could be spent. Each time. Per person. And I brought many people to visit. However, since my last visit when I learned the seals are now almost

non-existent in the area, I have made no plans to return. I no longer bring other people to La Jolla. Just from one person, local commerce is losing thousands of dollars. If just one person can cause all of this financial loss to the area, then surely all of the other visitors who go to other areas now to try to catch a glimpse of seals in the wild must add up to a massive loss of tourism to the area. If for no other reason, La Jolla should consider the financial implications — in this crippled financial market in an overpriced area in a bankrupt state — of taking steps that deter the seals from making La Jolla their home.

Doing it Better By Natasha Josefowitz, Ph.D. What is your personality style? Find out; it influences the way you feel, think and behave on an unconscious level. It is only when you have identified the unconscious forces that move you that you can consciously decide to try some different behaviors if the ones you usually use do not work well for you. Here are eight personality types one most often encounters in the workplace as well as at home. 1. The restless type. Restless people like change for change’s sake. They don’t settle on anything for long; they balk at routine and take risks that are not well thought out — often to the detriment of their organizations. At home, they are not satisfied with routine and look for new things to do — the perennial traveler fits into this category. 2. The aggressive type. Aggressive people are often competitive and want to be top dog. They want power and try to dominate others. They have high control needs but may not always be in good control themselves. At home, these people often have troubled marriages, as well as conflicts with their adolescent and grown children. 3. The workaholic. These people
LA JOLLA LIVING
The personality factor are often perfectionists. They want order in their lives and they pay attention to detail. They withhold the display of emotions and are susceptible to many stress-related health risks. The workaholic makes others feel inadequate as they stay at work later than anyone else and go to the office on weekends. Workaholics are unavailable parents and spouses, choosing to spend their evenings and weekends at work. 4. The mercurial type. People in the arts often belong to this category. They are very effusive, spontaneous and uninhibited and like being the center of attention. Their impulsiveness, however, can create problems for them at work when they don’t think through the consequences of their behaviors. Mercurial people are also often solipsistic, thinking the world revolves around them. They may be fun to be with, but their lack of responsible behavior eventually spells trouble on the home front. 5. The worrier. These are fearful people who predict negative outcomes to most undertakings and thus will avoid risk. They are guarded in their relationships. Their anxiety and lack of self-confidence make them cling to known routines and prevent them from making necessary changes. At home, worriers are over-protective of their children and may become paranoid in their relationships. 6. The leisurely type. These people are sometimes accused of being too
laid-back because they put their personal priorities ahead of work — they prefer to relax and enjoy themselves. These individuals don’t like to feel pushed and may have a tendency to procrastinate. The fun-loving person may not take on their share of responsibilities and thus annoy those who must pick up the slack. 7. The loner. These people are often found in the sciences. They are unsentimental, but instead are observers and doers. Their main problem is not understanding others’ feelings, so they sometimes hurt others inadvertently. The loners at home include the computerobsessed person who would rather surf the Net than spend time with family or tinker in the garage at the expense of time spent with spouse or children. 8.The go-getter. Usually successful, the go-getters are ambitious, often overly selfconfident and concentrate on their own goals sometimes to the detriment of organizational goals. They forge ahead, not caring if they step on other people’s toes. The go-getter may push their children to excel academically or at sports in ways that may not be beneficial to them. Winning
becomes everything. There are many other personality types, but these are ones that seem to impact the workplace the most. If you do not get the recognition you feel you deserve at work, or if you do not have the colleagueship you expect, ask yourself whether any of these personality types — or combinations thereof — fit you and thus may be the problem. Hardly anyone fits into just one category. People can be restless and aggressive, or restless and worried. On the other hand, go-getters are not usu-
ally loners nor leisurely, but can be workaholics. To find out, observe your responses when under pressure. They usually indicate the basic personality type you control better under more normal circumstances. If you don’t have a clue as to what personality type you have, show this list to a few trusted colleagues or family members and ask them to categorize you. Don’t be defensive about their responses, even if you disagree. Remember that feedback is a gift that is meant to help. Only by identifying the way your behavior affects others can you make the necessary changes. — Dr. 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.

BY DIANA CAVAGNARO | VILLAGE NEWS argaret’s Cleaners, a fourth-generation business, has added a new division to its business: Garde Robe (wardrobe or closet in French). The concept is this: imagine having endless closet space and a personal wardrobe valet. The service offers luxury storage and a 24/7 valet. Originating in New York City for residents with small closets and extensive wardrobes, the phenomenon has expanded to Tokyo, Las Vegas, Orange County and, now, San Diego. Customers who have embraced the new innovative concept are clients with small closet spaces, travelers, multiple home-
owners and fashion designers, like supermodel Iman, Ivanka Trump and Oscar de la Renta CEO Alex Bolen. The process begins with professional photographs and cataloguing of each item onto a website. Type, color, size, fabric and season divide the categories. Similar to a digital look-book, there is 24/7 access to the cyber closet. Customers can click on the cyber closet to create outfits using Garde Robe’s Virtual Stylist tool — the perfect service for fashionistas and socialites with extensive seasonal wardrobes. Margaret's Cleaners also offers another convenient service: a lug-

La Jolla author pens book teaching merchants people skills BY NICOLE SOURS LARSON | VILLAGE NEWS As the prime holiday shopping and entertaining season approaches, most would agree it’s increasingly important for businesses and employees to put their best food forward to ensure customers have the best possible experience, attracting positive “buzz” and return visits. Yet that’s often easier said than done, as the challenging economy places additional stresses on both consumers and the staff that deals directly with the public. Addressing these pesky issues, local author, artist and customer-relations trainer Cath Kachur DeStefano comes to the rescue with her recently published “It’s Not Nice to Choke Your Customer” — part of her Human TuneUp Tool Kit. In it, she combines experience gleaned through front-line customer service jobs — including a stint waiting tables at Judy
Forman’s Big Kitchen when Whoopi Goldberg was a dishwasher — with knowledge gained as a staff development and human potential trainer. DeStefano possesses the rare ability to distill an idea’s essence into its simplest, most succinct form. She conveys her points using whimsical doodles, while keeping her tone light and playful, despite the serious content. Among this reader’s Author and artist Cath DeStefano wrote the book “It’s Not Nice to Choke Your Customer,” teaching favorite clear-eyed gems: “Simple. No customers. No merchants valuable skills for relating to customers.

Christian Gimber, a senior at La Jolla High School, has set his highest fundraising goal ever for Junior Diabetes Research Foundation’s (JDRF) “Walk to Cure Diabetes” — an annual walk to raise funds for Type 1 diabetes research. Gimber has raised nearly $20,000 for JDRF since his Type 1 diagnosis in preschool 13 years ago. This year — in his final push for the cause before going to college in the fall — Gimber hopes to raise $10,000 for the nonprofit to raise awareness, help fund research for a cure and continue the organization’s life-changing treatment ventures like the creation of an artificial pancreas. Though the exact cause of Type 1 diabetes is unknown, it is often triggered when a person’s immune system mistakenly attacks insulin-producing cells in the pancreas. The chronic disease is neither preventable nor curable — yet. Gimber set his fundraising sights high in the hopes of changing that reality through research. “Everyone has to get involved if they want to see a cure for juvenile diabetes,” he said. “You can’t sit around and wait for a cure, you have to get out there and raise awareness yourself.”
Although Gimber’s day-to-day activities — like cross-country running or surfing — are not hindered, he has to check his blood-sugar levels regularly throughout the day, be careful about when and how he eats and is dependent on injected insulin for life. “It’s something my parents have told me from the beginning — diabetes isn’t something that will restrict you from anything. It’s just something I have to be a little more responsible with,” he said. “They always say, ‘Just do your best and God will take care of the rest.’” Gimber’s best efforts are certainly paying off. He is nearly halfway to his target — but he needs a village of help to raise the additional funds to reach his goal. “I’m trying to reach out to the community and get as many people involved as I can,” he said. “I definitely want to participate in a walk near wherever I go to college, but I’m passing the torch to the new generation of kids who are diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes.” To donate to Gimber’s efforts or to join his team during the walk on Nov. 12, visit www.jdrf.org. Under the “Get Involved” tab, select “Walk to Cure Diabetes” and insert Gimber’s name to donate to his campaign. Donations will be accepted throughout the month.

porters enjoying wines donated by the nearby Carruth Cellars, hors d’oeuvres and anticipatory conversation in a richly furnished setting (actually, a furniture store adjacent to the theatre, generously lent for the purpose). Following the wellreceived performance, the cast joined the audience on the patio for libations, a light supper, desserts and a chance to talk with those very talented performers.
with Vincent Andrunas The North Coast Repertory Theatre (NCRT) opened its 30th season in late October with “Heroes,” a delightful sixscene comedy about three World War I veterans living in an old soldier’s home in the French countryside, circa 1959. The friends recall their wartime battles, but now their common enemies are senility, decrepitude and the lingering remnants of their war wounds. Each doubts the others’ sanity — correctly so, it seems. They focus their remaining abilities on a campaign to “escape” to a distant stand of poplars they longingly spy from the terrace they share at the home. They’ll bring their trusty dog along with them — never mind that he’s actually a stone statue. Ray Reinhardt plays Henri and Ken Ruta is Gustave. Jonathan McMurtry, who plays Phillippe, is the youngest of the three actors. At 74, the local resident has spent the last 50 years in affiliation with the Old Globe Theatre, while also performing elsewhere. Many regard him as San Diego’s most talented and popular actor. Opening night began with NCRT sup-
Three days before Halloween, the Old Globe Theatre threw a masquerade party that revelers enthusiastically embraced. It began with a performance of “The Rocky Horror Show,” a musical initially staged in London in 1973. A subsequent1975 movie version became a wildly popular cult classic, with fans repeatedly attending midnight showings, turning them into audience-participation events. Devotees dressed as characters from the story, shouted out ad-lib lines (examples are generally unprintable, but often hilarious) and tossed toast and playing cards at the screen in response to occurrences in the show. It truly became a national phenomenon. The Globe refreshingly updated the production and re-orchestrated the score. There was much abbreviated dress, but no nudity — and yet the show was extremely sexy (“for mature audiences” — no children admitted). At some point or other, virtually every character (female and male) appears onstage in a bustier, garters and stockings — for which The Globe must have bought up all the stockings in San Diego. Wild and funny, the play’s story line involves a conservative engaged couple stuck with a flat tire on a dark and stormy night in the middle of nowhere. After finding a mysterious castle owned by a mad

Most audience members came in costume — many as play characters, others not. Some who’d never seen the play or the movie (dubbed “virgins” by the experienced) were initially shocked at the shouted ad-libs (“How rude! How vulgar!”), but soon came to appreciate the humor and understand it was indeed a part of the show. The storyline moved quickly through two acts and 19 musical numbers, touching lightheartedly and irreverently on themes of infidelity, transvestitism, homosexuality and loss of innocence.

markets the tool kit both as a set and as individual components through her Human TuneUp website. DeStefano, who lives along the Pacific Beach/La Jolla border, learned about customer service the hard way. She worked her way through college as a postal worker, aluminum factory punch-press operator, waitress and, after her move to San Diego, as a hotel switchboard operator. “I remember how I was treated,” DeStefano said. “I was treated as if I was ‘less than.’ I’ve never forgotten.” The principles of effective customer relations are simple, but not necessarily easy to implement, she said, especially in a fast-paced, short-staffed environment. “People just want to be respected. ‘Treat me like I matter,’ that is the essence of customer service,” she said. Dealing with the public is wearing, DeStefano points out, and often requires an attitude adjustment to cope with difficult or angry customers. She designed her book — and particularly her flipbook — as a refresher. It is filled with tips and tools to get through the day while
maintaining sanity and good humor. She geared it to the hospitality, retail and other high-public-contact industries. Newly graduated with both a teaching certificate and degree in political science and international relations, DeStefano left her native Michigan in 1976 and headed for the sun of San Diego. She found professional work as a caseworker in the San Diego County Welfare Department, later moving into a staffdevelopment position, where she discovered her passion for teaching and training. After two years, she quit her job and founded her own training business, originally called Ideas in Action. She connected with a national seminar company and conducted training seminars throughout the country and around the world. Nearly seven years ago, tired of constant travel, she scaled back her business and became executive director of the Diplomacy Council of San Diego, which partners with the U.S. Department of State in arranging people-to-people international programs. Recently, San Diego Magazine selected her as one its “Women Who Move the City.” To purchase “It’s Not Nice to Choke Your Customer,” or engage Cath DeStefano as a speaker, visit www.HumanTuneup.com.

ianne York originally moved to La Jolla because of its beauty and sense of peace – the same elements she now brings to her busy life as an internationally recognized media expert, speaker, author, and business owner. Among her many accolades, York has been the recipient of the San Diego Business Journal’s Women Who Mean Business Award and San Diego’s Most Admired CEO award – and it’s easy to see why.
Let’s Makeup As a model in the industry for more than 20 years, York realized the damaging, harsh effects that fashion makeup can have on the skin. She took her industry expertise and her passion for beauty and created two successful skin care lines: D.Y.G. (Discover Your Gorgeous) Mineral Makeup and You Glow Girl! D.Y.G. puts an emphasis on high-quality ingredients that provide beneficial results for the skin, but with the fashion forward and sophisticated effects of a glamorous makeup line. Her skin care products use vitaphenol – an ingredient created exclusively by York – and are derived from pomegranate, the Asian fruit mangosteen, and white and green teas. She boasts that the line is so breathable, you can sleep in it. York’s second line, You Glow Girl!, focuses on teenage skin care, especially sun protection, and treating acne. Beauty Guru As an expert in the world of beauty, York is often featured on television programs and radio shows, and was the star of Oxygen’s Addicted to Beauty. She lectures all over the world on the topics of healthy skin care, self-esteem, and beauty. Her travels have also taken her to orphanages and schools in countries such as Mexico and Thailand for philanthropic work. York has also taken her beauty knowledge and shared it in various books so teens can be educated on how to start taking care of their skin at an early age. The You Glow girl! series, Beauty Basics for Teens, and Fun in the Sun Safely – which received the American Academy of Dermatology Tri-Angle Award – all offer information on the basics of skin care in a hp, fun way. For more information on York and her skincare lines, visit Dianneyork-goldman.com or DYGcosmetics.com.

LA JOLLA LIVING AHEARN
CONTINUED FROM Page 3 Pacific Beach, laying groundwork for implementing the beach alcohol ban enforcement. “He’s 100 percent committed and always planning ahead, and definitely believes in community policing,” Long said. A “proud native” of Hicksville, Long Island, hometown of musician Billy Joel, Ahearn, now 48, grew up in an Irish Catholic family, a child of divorced parents and without a clear direction. While in college and holding down a job bagging groceries, “I realized there was more to life than sitting on a barstool,” but he didn’t know what he wanted to do. On his first, transformational plane trip at 19 to visit a friend in San Diego, he discovered a new life and his future home. Quitting college, he moved to San Diego later that year in 1983 and found a job as a warehouseman in Kearny Mesa. Ahearn said he realized it was time to do something with his life when he met his future wife, Jackie, a registered nurse who was then working at a nearby deli. He continued working as a warehouseman while resuming college part-time at San Diego State University, graduating with a B.S. degree in criminal justice administration in 1992. The couple settled in Santee following their marriage, raising two children who are now in their late teens. Ahearn returns to Northern after a rich and varied 25-year career, moving up the SDPD chain of command. He twice served in the Police Academy,
first as a training officer and later as the sergeant overseeing an entire class of trainees, as well as a domestic-violence investigator working under the pioneering family justice model. He recently completed two and a half years as the lieutenant overseeing the department’s internal affairs arm, the unit that looks into complaints against officers. “It’s the most challenging part: to be told that we don’t have good police officers,” Ahearn said. “I loved the job. Every complaint was a story.” He said every investigation must be facts-driven. “Don’t ever minimize a citizen’s complaint,” Ahearn reflected. It is a principle he followed as Northern’s beach lieutenant. Ahearn’s Northern Division is known for its continuity of officers. While he’s been away three and a half years, many Northern officers, including those on the beach team, have remained as long as 15 years. “They have a sense of ownership. It’s community policing as it’s meant to be,” Ahearn said. Ahearn said he plans to talk with community representatives to assess the situation before determining priorities. “I don’t want to police Northern the way we did it before. We need to be progressive and keep moving forward,” he said. The city’s budget challenges and the diminished number of officers on the street are situations that will present challenges, Ahearn admitted. Response time may be slower, he said, but officers will respond. To reach Ahearn directly, call (858) 552-1710, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Donovan’s Steak House They may look good enough to eat, but the paintings and sculptures at Donovan’s of La Jolla are strictly off limits – so you’ll have to content yourself with the USDA prime beef, the eatery’s star attraction. If steak isn’t in the plan, pork and veal chops and succulent seafood will satisfy the most discriminating of palates. And at Donovan’s, fresh seasonal vegetables and your choice of potato are always included with each entrée.
Cafe Milano Owner/Chef Pasquale Cianni, brought Northern Italian cuisine to La Jolla 12 years ago & has been successfully pleasing both local residents & out of towners, even out of the country guests, with his home made pappardelle pasta, veal ossobuco, lobster ravioli and other many authentic Italian dishes. Cafe Milano offers your palate an exciting & incredible experience for the whole family at affordable prices. Early Bird Special: 4:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. and choose a select soup or salad, menu entrée, and dessert for $17.95.
