TOWERS ON TRACK But will lifeguard staff be cut in face of city budget crisis? BY ADRIANE TILLMAN | VILLAGE NEWS

The city is poised to make $34 million in cuts to lifeguard and fire services to help bridge the city’s anticipated $179 million shortfall in the 2011 general fund. “Since all departments have experienced budget reductions over the past two years, cuts that had minimal impact on core services have already been taken,” wrote Fire Chief Javier Mainar in a Nov. 3 letter to the Fire and Rescue Department. “Consequently, recommendations for cuts to core services, where a majority of our expenses occur, were inevitable this go round, given the size of our target.”

Fire and lifeguard stations may be forced to close during this round of budget cuts, according to Mainar. “While I cannot yet share with you the specific cuts submitted, I can tell you they include both non-personnel expenses (supplies, services, outlay) and personnel expenses (overtime and staffing) throughout the department,” Mainar wrote. The city expects to finalize its budget cuts by Nov. 24 and implement the budget reductions by Jan. 1, 2010. The city will hold its first public hearing concerning the budget cuts on Dec. 7 and a second public hearing on Dec. 14, SEE STAFF, Page 5

Shores station ready to go Plans to revamp the La Jolla Shores Lifeguard Station are ready to go, and so the Committee on Public Safety and Neighborhood Services has recommended re-appropriating funds to the lifeguard station. The committee has recommended to City Council that the city spend the remainder of its 2002 Fire and Life Safety bonds ($687,851) and the unused funds from the completed Pacific Beach Lifeguard Tower and Grand Avenue restrooms ($75,290) on the La Jolla Shores

Lifeguard Station. Construction on the station is expected to begin as early as January 2010. “The design plans for the La Jolla Shores Lifeguard Station are 100 percent complete, and, since it will be the first project to reach the construction stage, the likelihood of expending the uncommitted funds in an expedient way will be the greatest,” stated Report 09-135, which the committee has submitted to City Council for approval.

LJCD sacks Pacific League championship BY DAVE THOMAS | VILLAGE NEWS

Needing a win at home in their season finale to secure the Pacific League football title, the La Jolla Country Day (LJCD) School Torreys did that and then some last Friday night. LJCD (9-1, 7-0) rolled to a 28-0 victory over Army and Navy to dethrone the former champs,

with senior Montell Allen a force on both sides of the ball. Allen carried the ball 14 times for 172 yards, including a 40yard third quarter TD run. On defense, Allen made 10 tackles at linebacker. Fellow inside linebacker Mical Bailey did more than his part to make it a long night for the Warriors, compiling a season-high 17 tackles.

QB Ruben Pena was 5-of-12 passing for 52 yards, while gaining 45 yards on the ground, including a 15-yard TD run. RB Frankie Brown made the most of two carries, gaining 94 yards, including a 7-yard TD scamper. On defense, Indie Lavarias and Blake Mohseni led the way with SEE LJCD, Page 5

Holiday respites far from the madding crowd BY ADRIANE TILLMAN | VILLAGE NEWS

Part II in a holiday series: As a child with four other siblings, my homemaker mother (a nurse until her fifth child) dragged us through the shopping centers of dreary, cold Nottingham, England, where we were raised for a part of our childhood, to pick up Christmas cards, holiday decorations, groceries and presents. My favorite moments were when we stopped for hot tea and cookies to warm up and relax. We were tired and found comfort together when our mother’s attention was focused solely on us.

Seal activist Bryan Pease, an attorney for the Animal Protection and Rescue League, applauded the ruling as “a victory for seals, a victory for children and a victory for people who like to come to watch the seals.” The City Attorney’s Office also issued an email to applaud the ruling. “In February, our office recommended that the City of San Diego sponsor legislation to change the terms of the trust to give the City discretion on use of the beach,” wrote City Attorney Jan Goldsmith. “Today’s decision means that the issue can now be decided by the City Council and Mayor, the way public policy issues are supposed to be decided.” City attorney sets it straight Goldsmith issued a memo this past June to clarify misconceptions surrounding the Children’s Pool.

NEWSbriefs ‘Geezer Bandit’ strikes another LJ bank

BY ADRIANE TILLMAN | VILLAGE NEWS

The city is no longer obligated to shoo the seals from Children’s Pool since a Superior Court judge dissolved the 2008 injunction on Nov. 13. Superior Court Judge Timothy Taylor indicated he agreed with the previous judge’s rulings, but that new legislature has altered the case. Namely, State Senator Christine Kehoe introduced State Bill 428 to permit Children’s Pool to also be used as “a marine mammal park for the enjoyment and educational benefit of children.” The bill will take effect Jan. 1, 2010. “It is the court’s view that nothing would be gained by insisting on compliance with the earlier orders for the next 48 days,” wrote Taylor in his decision. The decision about what to do with Children’s Pool now lies in the hands of City Council. Paul Kennerson, the attorney from La Jolla who first sued the city to return the beach to its 1941 configuration as a pool for children, has not yet decided whether he will appeal. “I’m not the only vote in the game,” Kennerson said. “It’s really a community issue. I pay a lot of attention to what the community says. It’s not my beach or Valerie O’Sullivan’s beach.” Kennerson represented swimmer and former La Jollan Valerie O’Sullivan who was charged by the city for harassing the seals after swimming in the cove. Kennerson opposed Kehoe’s amendment to include a “marine mammal park” in the trust, calling it “unconstitutional.” “[The judge] gave every benefit of the doubt to the validity of the statute,” Kennerson said. “I don’t believe it’s the right thing to do.” District 1 Councilwoman Sherri Lightner did not comment on the future of the beach, but spokeswoman Erin Demorest said Lightner is committed to upholding the law and

The city entered a trust with the state – not with Ellen Browning Scripps. “As opined by the attorney general, if the state wants to change the terms of this trust, it can do so as the property owner,” Goldsmith stated in the memo. The seals: “With limited exceptions, federal law prohibits removal of the seals,” Goldsmith wrote. “Whether those exceptions apply is subject to litigation. If they do apply, federal law dictates the method of removal – and it is quite involved. Hence, the $700,000 cost. The federal government has instructed us in writing that allowing dogs to harass the seals is a federal crime and they will enforce the law.” The endgame: “Removal of the seals does not end the matter,” Goldsmith wrote. “The state court order would also require that the beach sand be dredged, contaminants removed and the beach be reconfigured to its 1941 geography. The estimate on this is an additional $1 million for the dredging plus the environmental impact report and a lot of years seeking approval from the Coastal Commission and other agencies and defending environmental lawsuits.” I

The “Geezer Bandit” suspected of robbing four banks across the county has apparently struck a second time in La Jolla. The slight 70-year-old man reportedly robbed Bank of America at 7680 Girard Ave. at gunpoint on Nov. 16 at 5:57 p.m. The suspect allegedly approached a teller, displayed a handgun, made a verbal demand for cash and then left on foot, according to a Nov. 17 FBI report. Witnesses reported he escaped on foot in the other robberies, and the FBI does not suspect an accomplice is involved, according to FBI spokesman Darrell Foxworth with the San Diego office. The Geezer Bandit is believed to have robbed “several thousands of dollars,” but the FBI would not release the exact amount. Witnesses have described the robber as a white male in his 70s, unshaven with gray hair, a thin build and standing at 5-foot-10 to 6-foot-3. He has been seen wearing a baseball cap, a blue blazer and several layers of clothes. The FBI is offering a cash reward for information on the robberies, and is asking the public to keep an eye out for him. “Because a weapon has been displayed during some of his bank robberies, the Geezer Bandit should be considered armed and dangerous,” stated the FBI’s report. According to the FBI report, the socalled Geezer Bandit also robbed the U.S. Bank at 9643 Mission Gorge Road on Aug. 28; the San Diego National Bank at 7877 Ivanhoe Ave. in La Jolla on Sept. 12; the U.S. Bank at 4627 Carmel Mountain Rd. on Oct. 9; and Bank of America at 17008 Avenida de Acacias in Rancho SEE BRIEFS, Page 5

recommends transferring the $623,000 in deferred maintenance revenue from the La Jolla Shores Lifeguard Station to other fire and lifeguard projects that await funding. The transfer in funds helps the city spend its bond money more quickly, since it has a shorter expenditure time than deferred maintenance funds. The La Jolla Shores Lifeguard Station will cost an estimated $3.4 million for the design, construction, site improvement and demolition of the existing tower, according to Jihad Sleiman, the city’s project manager. The station will be split into two buildings with a 30-foot observation tower. The buildings will house male and female locker

rooms, a first aid room, a reception area and storage areas for emergency vehicles and equipment. Design plans for the Point Loma Fire Station 22 and South Mission Beach Lifeguard Station are both approximately 60 percent complete. Design plans for improvements to the Mission Beach Lifeguard Station are approximately 60 percent complete. In addition, the committee recommended transferring $100,000 from the Disability Services Program to the Children’s Pool lifeguard tower for accessibility improvements.

Thanksgiving top day for cooking fires NFPA urges cooks to stand by their pan to prevent fires COURTESY NATIONAL FIRE PROTECTION ASSOCIATION

he National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) is calling on cooks across the nation to include fire safety in their recipes because Thanksgiving is the leading day for home cooking fires. U.S. firefighters responded to roughly 1,300 home fires involving cooking equipment on Thanksgiving in 2007, roughly three times the daily average of cooking fires, according to NFPA. “Incorporating fire safety into your holiday preparations can mean the difference between putting on a fantastic holiday feast for family and friends or having to call the fire department to put out a fire,” said NFPA’s Lorraine Carli, vice president of communications. Cooking is the leading cause of home fires. Between 2003 and 2006, U.S. fire departments responded to an estimated average of 150,200 home structure fires involving cooking equipment per year, according to the newly released NFPA report Home Fires Involving Cooking Equipment. These fires caused an annual average of 500 civilian deaths, 4,660 civilian injuries and $756 million in direct property damage. Other key findings from the report on fires during 20032006: • Cooking equipment was involved in 40 percent of all reported home fires, 17 percent of home fire deaths, 36 percent of home civilian injuries, and 12 percent of the direct property damage resulting from home fires. • Unattended cooking was by far the leading contributing factor in these fires. Something that could catch fire was too close to the equipment ranked second and unintentionally turned on or not turned off ranked third. • Three-fifths (57 percent) of reported home cooking fire

T

injuries occurred when victims tried to fight the fire themselves. NFPA recommends the following cooking safety tips: Cook with Caution Be on alert! If you are sleepy or have consumed alcohol, don’t use the stove or stovetop. Stay in the kitchen while you are frying, grilling or broiling food. If you leave the kitchen for even a short period of time, turn off the stove. If you are simmering, baking, roasting or boiling food, check it regularly, remain in the home while food is cooking, and use a timer to remind you that you are cooking. Keep anything that can catch fire — oven mitts, wooden utensils, food packaging, towels or curtains — away from your stovetop. If you have a cooking fire…. Keep a lid nearby when you’re cooking to smother small grease fires. Smother the fire by sliding the lid over the pan and turn off the stovetop. Leave the pan covered until it is completely cooled. For an oven fire, turn off the heat and keep the door closed. If you try to fight the fire, be sure others are getting out and you have a clear way out. When in doubt, just get out! When you leave, close the door behind you to help contain the fire. Call 9-1-1 or the local emergency number after you leave. — Based in Quincy, Mass., NFPA has been a worldwide leader in providing fire, electrical, building and life safety to the public since 1896. The mission of the international nonprofit organization is to reduce the worldwide burden of fire and other hazards on the quality of life by providing and advocating consensus codes and standards, research, training, and education.

Plan now for Casa Beach Marine Mammal Park Judge Taylor’s ruling on Nov. 13 dismissing the O’Sullivan case and vacating the order to dredge the beach was a great victory for all — children, seals, residents of San Diego, visitors from around the world, and the City of San Diego. Thanks to the State Legislature for amending the 1931 Tidelands grant “a marine mammal park for the enjoyment and educational benefit of children” as one of the uses for Casa Beach. Thanks also to City Council for asking the Legislature to make this change. The creation of the park rests in the hands of our City Council. Shared use must be re-examined as this policy will only continue to cause conflicts between beach vs. seal advocates, often requiring police intervention, as well as the daily disturbances by people standing too close to resting seals. The rope placed during pupping season should be left up all year. Having the City ask NOAA to change their signs indicating their official guidance of a 50foot distance from the seals is recommended. Other improvements could include installing telescopes for close-up viewing and other improved signage. Casa Beach Marine Mammal Park could become a world-class tourist destination, if planned correctly.

SB 428 will become law on January 1. Decisions made now can allow harbor seals greater protection and end the conflict at the beach.

New Services at Surf & Post Shipping Center! When Steve Holl became the new owner/operator of Surf & Post Shipping Center (formerly know as Public Mail Service) in August of 2008, his main focus was to streamline the business and introduce new services for his customers. One of his first moves was to offer fulltime Notary services, which quickly proved to be very popular with many of the local businesses and residents in the Pacific Beach area. Next on the list was to start a drop shipping service for online retailers to help them with the tedious task of fulfilling their orders. Steve currently pro-

vides this service for a local surfboard clothing company and a local skateboard grip tape manufacturer. Two new services were just introduced this fall. Last month Surf & Post joined forces with Green Shredding to offer convenient document shredding for local businesses and residents, and this November they became part of the Kinek.com network, a service for anyone who needs to receive a parcel at their home but may be worried about missed deliveries, damage, or theft to parcels that are left on their doorstep. For a nominal fee Surf & Post

will accept the parcel on your behalf and notify you when it arrives at their shop. Many other services are available at Surf & Post Shipping Center including worldwide shipping, professional packing, mailbox rentals, faxing, copies, and much more! They are conveniently located across the street from the PB Post Office. Surf & Post Shipping Center 4629 Cass Street, Pacific Beach 858.272.8656 www.surfandpost.com surfandpost@gmail.com

‘Hansel and Gretel’ a grand introduction to opera for children Angels and Gingerbread cookies. Humperdinck was influenced by the music of Richard Wagner, whom he knew and assisted. Wagner fans with motif memory hear allusions to Faffner and the Flying Dutchman and take pleasure in Humperdinck’s lush orchestrations, remarkably played by the Lyric Opera orchestra under the baton of Kelly Kuo. Remaining performances take place at 7:30 p.m. Thursday and Saturday (Nov. 19 and 21) and 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 22. For tickets ($32-$52, children under 17 half price), call (619) 239-8836.

Move over, Harry Potter. You may be king of Quidditch, but Leon Natker has the better broom when he soars in Lyric Opera San Diego’s production of Engelbert Humperdinck’s beloved opera, “Hansel and Gretel,” playing at Birch North Park Theatre through Nov. 22. That’s right. As the nasty Witch who bakes children into outsize gingerbread cookies, Natker flies — with an assist from Flying by Foy — and he loves it. Everything about his portrayal is gleeful. He’s funny without being too frightening for the little ones who see the show. His grotesque nose and chin, which almost meet, resemble the Arthur Rackham drawing of 1909, and his body — forever enshrined in lifesize gingerbread at the tale’s denouement when the witch, outwitted by the children, is baked in her own oven — is a miracle of engineering. The under-sung, under-praised Pam Stompoly-Ericson, who has been a member of Lyric Opera San Diego “since the beginning of time,” deserves the Grail of Grimm for her creation of Natker’s costume, visage and makeup. In addition to staging the traditional holiday work, artistic director J. Sherwood Montgomery is credited with scenic design. The translucent drops and backdrops are worthy of Rackham as well. Beautifully lighted by Matthew Novotny, the forest scene changes from late afternoon to encroaching night; however, one questions the flying snowflakes during the overture and

fessor James Winker and staged by the Old Globe’s Richard Seer, continues through Sunday only in a bright and colorful production featuring the work of scenic designer Sean Fanning and costume designer Michelle Hunt Souza. Andrew Dahl, Catherine Gowl, Jordan McArthur and Aubrey Saverino head the company of USD/Old Globe MFA actors. Kevin Hoffmann and Andrew Hutcheson play servants Speed and Launce. Performance times: 8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 19 and Friday, Nov. 20, 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 21 and 2 and 7 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 22 at the Globe’s Arena Stage in Balboa Park.

Hai-Ting Chinn as Hansel, Leon Natker as The Witch and Kate Oberjat as Gretel PHOTO BY KEN JACQUES in Lyric Opera’s “Hansel and Gretel.”

whatever extraterrestrial gobo special appeared during the Angels’ ballet. The Witch’s sweet house with its gingerbread fence may not be innovative, but her bake-house, topped with a giant, foil-wrapped Kiss, is a glory to behold and especially fun when it belches smoke. Delightful as well are Hansel (darling, boyish, vocally admirable mezzo-soprano Hai-Ting Chinn) and Gretel (soprano Kate Oberjat), respectively clad in lederhosen and traditional peasant attire. Their blend on “Evening Prayer (Abendsegen)” and elsewhere is lovely. Strapping, bright-voiced baritone Scott Gregory returns to Lyric Opera San Diego to sing the role of Peter, the children’s father, a broom-maker. His diction and acting are impeccable. Peter’s wrath,

when the children turn up missing after Mother (soprano Pamela Porter Arnold) thoughtlessly sends them into the woods to pick strawberries, is mild compared to some interpretations. Boy soprano Max OilmanWilliams’ (he alternates with Spike Sommers) Sandman is adorable, as is Caroline Nelms’ Dew Fairy. The usual complaint is true here: men’s diction (Natker and Gregory) is clearly understood; diction of mezzo sopranos is about 60 percent decipherable; and diction of high and treble voices is, well, forget about it. However, do take the children to this melodically beautiful opera. It’s a grand introduction to the art form, filled in this case with children from Lyric Opera Academy, who portray Animals,

SPORTS briefs Golfers take to links as season winds down More than 100 of the top high school players in San Diego County qualified to converge on Warner Springs last week for CIF competition. After last Tuesday’s play, the field was cut to 76 players. Last Wednesday, the remaining 76 battled it out for 12 slots to qualify for the next level. Bishop’s School sophomores Courtney Hooton and Spenser Krut made a very strong showing with scores of 149 and 159, respectively. Hooton’s score was the fifth best of the tournament, good enough to advance to the next level. Elsewhere, La Jolla High’s Juliette Garay qualified for the recent

CIF Regionals at Warner Springs. Although playing with severe tendonitis in her left wrist recently and on tough course conditions, she made the cut to day two by shooting an 83 on day one, with birdies on the first and second holes. On day two, she carded a 76 with birdies on the sixth and seventh holes. A sophomore, Garay was named the number three golfer of the City Conference Top 50 golfers of the Western League. She was also named to the First Team allLeague of the Western League. “Juliette carried an impressive 2.29 stroke differential through the season,” La Jolla High head coach Allen Merryman noted. “She performed very well and this experience will only help her to be more familiar with the course and this level of tournament. As our number one player, she deservingly

received our award for the most valuable player to the team. We hope to continue to improve as a team next year.”

Bishop’s boys water polo coach sinks 500th win Having built a dynasty over the years, Bishop’s School head boys water polo coach Jim Fales celebrated his 500th victory in his 21year tenure as a Bishop’s coach with an 18-3 win against Valley Center last Thursday. The game, starting the first round of the Division II CIF playoffs, puts Fales in the record book. “Coach Fales has built a water polo community within The Bishop’s School,” said Tom Tarantino, athletic director. “The victories are a byproduct of life lessons in the pool.

The Nth Degree... Starry, starry nights

with Vincent Andrunas Passing by downtown’s classic Spreckels Theatre, San Diego’s “Style Guy” worried that the letters might somehow fall off the marquee and be stuck back up there in some mixed-up, random order. But when he returned later, it still read “Leonard Simpson,” the correct spelling of his name. Attending performances at the Spreckels during his childhood, Leonard had never imagined he’d one day tread that stage himself, with his name blazoned across the marquee outside. But there it was, in letters big enough for Mr. Magoo to read, even sans specs. It proclaimed Leonard’s lavishly produced fashion extravaganza, “Dressed to the Nth Degree,” held at the theatre on Friday the 13th. For some (including an elegant group of 16, hosted by John and Sally Thornton), the event began with a VIP dinner at the University Club, a short drive (or long walk) from the Spreckels. Those who missed the early dinner would later attend a VIP candlelight supper, following the fashion festivities. Betwixt the dual repasts, and following a champagne party in the theatre lobby, the Spreckels stage was the scene of Style Guy Simpson’s most impressive and theatrical fashion show to date. The evening’s dinner conversation had run to talk of how women can (and must, they said…) wear different outfits for nearly every appearance, while men may sport the same stripes day after day (more or less…). But Leonard’s fashion show presented myriad modes for everybody. I’m pleased to see mostly women in fashion shows, and that’s certainly my preference. But in this show, there seemed

to be nearly equal numbers of men’s and women’s outfits — and since this event was all about “Best Dressed Women” and “Best Dressed Men,” it was reasonable for the guys to be almost equally represented. With 14 scenes, there was truly plenty for everyone. Leonard’s signature headdresses played an important part (for the ladies, of course), and were impressively wild, employing ostrich plumes, peacock feathers, fans, etc. Following a live auction with Bill Menish, Leonard’s second annual Top Ten Best Dressed Women and Men were presented on stage. The glamorous gals were Laura Applegate, Tanya Brandes, Rita Szczotka, Jennifer Greenfield, Denise Hug, Roxi Link, Tiffany Mahoney, Sandy Redman, Pam Slater-Price and Susie Spanos. In case you’re interested, the dapper dudes were Vincent Bartolotta, Todd Gloria, Jim Lennox, Jim Mahoney, “Mitch” Mitchell, James Mulvaney (Sr.), John Parrish, Onofrio Pecoraro, Billy Ray Smith and Richard Woltman. Mr. Woltman had another distinction that evening. He and wife Kaye posted a million-dollar challenge grant, matching all funds raised at the event to double the proceeds for the beneficiary, the Scripps Cancer Center at Mercy Hospital.

City to mull taking the wheel for PLJ BY ADRIANE TILLMAN | VILLAGE NEWS

La Jolla may see its Business Improvement District (BID) up and running by next year but in an altered form: the city will administer the BID for a fee and Promote La Jolla will act in advisory capacity to the city. Or, at least this is the proposal on the table, which City Council will discuss on Nov. 23 and Dec. 8. “The main point is that there will be a BID,” said Promote La Jolla Chair Rick Wildman. “Everything would have come to a screeching halt without this. It’s really a creative solution.” Wildman appeared before City Council on Sept. 21 to request the council vote on the future of the La Jolla BID despite the ongoing investigation into Promote La Jolla. City officials gave Promote La Jolla two choices: allow the city to administer the BID through the remainder of the fiscal year until June 30, or wait until the investigation is resolved. The Promote La Jolla board opted for the first solution. City Council will have to approve the $130,000 budget for 2010, and authorize the city treasurer to retroactively assess business fees from July 1, 2009 to the present. In fiscal year 2009, the city collected $128,465 from the business district. “Please bear in mind that having city staff take on this role is an interim course; therefore we would not be entering into any long-term agreements,” wrote Meredith Dibden Brown, manager of the city’s Office of Small Business, in an Oct. 28 e-mail to Wildman. City staff will take $16,000 from the budget to handle the

paperwork for the group, which will include executing purchase orders, processing requests for payment, monitoring work performed and meeting with Promote La Jolla. The city treasurer will charge $1,500 for billing. The city will also have to approve the vendors hired by Promote La Jolla. The budget will also provide $26,000 for Promote La Jolla to establish a business office and continue to pay its parttime accountant, Miriam Bakhsh. A full-time executive director will not be hired. The 2010 budget includes $35,000 for holiday decorations and the installation of 100 new hanging baskets. Sidewalk cleaning, trash removal, bench repair and watering the hanging baskets is set to receive $32,000. Proposed funding also includes $14,000 for Website and printing, and $4,000 for special events. “The plan… will enable the community to continue these ongoing projects without having to resort to ongoing requests for funds and volunteer work projects from members of the community at large, many of whom are exhausted at this point in time,” wrote Wildman in an Oct. 28 e-mail to Dibden Brown. Promote La Jolla landed in hot water last July after the city audited the group and found it had over-billed the city, as well as defaulted on a loan on a separate foundation the group had set up. In August, the police department’s financial crime detectives seized documents and other materials from the office of former president Deborah Marengo related to the audit of Promote La Jolla. I

Zac Zlatic (12) spots an open receiver as his La Jolla Vikings battled Point Loma Nov. 13 in the annual game for “The VILLAGE NEWS | SCOTT HOPKINS Shoe.” Despite Zlatic's 153 yards passing and two touchdown throws, the Vikes lost 22-15.

Dogs down & dirty in victory over Vikes BY SCOTT HOPKINS | VILLAGE NEWS

The La Jolla Vikings open CIF football playoffs in Gene Edwards Stadium tomorrow, Nov. 20 against Palo Verde Valley High School from Blythe. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m. in the Division IV firstround match, with the winner traveling to Valley Center for a Nov. 27 quarterfinal game. Vikes head coach Rey Hernandez will send his squad against the Yellowjackets after finishing the regular season with a 4-6 record, 2-3 in Western League. The ‘Jackets finished 5-5 overall, including 3-2 in the Imperial Valley League. Quarterback Robert Shupe, a junior, leads the visitors with an impressive 259 passing yards per game. In La Jolla’s final regular season game, the Vikings threw a

mighty scare into host Point Loma, holding a 15-14 lead entering the final quarter before the Pointers scored a late touchdown to edge the Vikes in a 22-15 tussle at Bennie Edens Field. The victory leaves the Pointers holding “The Shoe” trophy for yet another year. After the Pointers had taken a 7-0 first-quarter lead, the Vikes struck back when, on a fourthdown play needing two yards, they instead surprised the Point Loma defense with a 35-yard touchdown pass from Zac Zlatic to Andy Jones. The extra-point kick was blocked, leaving the Vikes close at 7-6. Following another Point Loma score, La Jolla’s Braden Fudge lined up for a 54-yard field goal attempt with time about to expire before halftime. While his

attempt failed, the Pointers were flagged by officials for roughing the kicker. This time, from 49 yards, Fudge was accurate, and the teams left the field with the Pointers holding a slim 14-9 lead. A Pointer fumble, recovered by an alert Viking, led to another La Jolla touchdown and the lead that stood until the final quarter. This time it was Tyler Bassler snagging a 17-yard throw from Zlatic. The Viking drive was aided by an unsportmanlike conduct penalty on the hosts. A two-point conversion attempt by the Vikes was unsuccessful, but the visitors assumed that 15-14 lead with just more than nine minutes remaining in the third period. The Viking defense, which matched up very well against the SEE VIKES, Page 14

Prepkitchen is all about the slow fast-food BY ADRIANE TILLMAN | VILLAGE NEWS

Restaurateur Arturo Kassel and chef Ryan Johnston have infused their passion for eating local, fresh food that is cooked simply and artfully into their latest endeavor at 7556 Fay Ave. – Prepkitchen, which opened six months ago. The pair, along with three other business partners, run the Whisknladle restaurant at 1044 Wall St., which opened in February 2008. Kassel and Johnston began brainstorming the idea to open an auxiliary kitchen after they grew Restaurateur Arturo Kassel at the counter inside his newest ventuire, Prep- frustrated at not being able to find healthy, good food in a hurry to kitchen, 7556 Fay Ave.

accommodate their own busy schedules. “We thought, ‘Why can’t we get Whisknladle food to take home?’” Kassel said. “That planted the seed.” So Kassel and his crew set up the “prep” part of Whisknladle kitchen at the small café to offer made-to-order dishes like gnocchi with kitchen-braised beef in a tomato sauce to take home or eat at the indoor bar or outdoor patio. Prepkitchen also caters parties, and offers a family meal for five – three courses for $65. Kassel describes the menu as comfort foods that might push peo-

ple’s culinary comfort boundaries. For example, the cooks make a turkey sandwich that they brine, roast and season in-house, and serve with bacon and onion marmalade or a date chutney on Bread and Cie bread. “We offer slow fast-food… it might take 10 minutes to prepare, but it’s cooked to order and made fresh,” Kassel said. Prepkitchen and Whisknladle take the Alice Waters approach to eating locally and seasonally. They source their ingredients from four farms that offer high-quality produce: La Milpa Organic Farm five SEE PREPKITCHEN, Page 14

Pointer offense, made one error in the fourth quarter. Pointer sophomore Morris Mathews broke through the La Jolla secondary and outran Vikes defenders on a 53-yard scoring dash. When a two-point conversion run by the Pointers was successful by inches, they led 22-15 with just over five minutes left to play. During those frantic final minutes, the Pointers missed a 37-yard field goal that would have given them a 10-point lead and the Vikings also had a final chance. Tensions ran high on both sidelines and among spectators. On La Jolla’s last drive, the Pointers jumped offsides on three consecutive plays, giving the Vikes new life and 15 free yards. After driving to the Pointers’ 8-yard line, the Vikings fumbled but recovered. With a firstand-goal, the visitors sensed a potential tying or winning score. But it was not to be. On third down from the five, Zlatic’s pass was broken up in the end zone and the fourth-down play, a halfback option pass, was intercepted by the hosts in the endzone for a touchback with 1:20 on the scoreboard clock.

inspired. “[The cooks] put their personality and spin on their food,” Kassel said. “It would be easier to perfect 16 dishes and serve them yearround but that’s not what we’re about.” Kassel, 29, grew up on Mount Soledad with a burning desire to enter the restaurant business since the age of 13. He describes his mother as “an excellent cook, his own Julia Child.” Kassel graduated from the French Culinary Institute in New York in and spent nearly four years managing restaurants in the city before moving back to La Jolla in 2006 to be close to family. Opening his own restaurant at an early age “has been a school of hard knocks,” said Kassel, who

mentioned that Prepkitchen is “swimming upwards” as he attempts to warm locals to his taste for high-quality food off the cuff. Restaurant recommendation: A homebody who spends time in his own kitchen and circulating to friends’ and families’ dinner tables as part of his own “cooking club,” Kassel, nonetheless, recommends the Cowboy Star, 640 10th Ave., as a good, unpretentious steakhouse. Farm House Café, a French bistro at 2121 Adams Ave., also tops his list. Cookbook picks: Anything by Alice Waters, “Au Pied De Cochon” by Martin Picard and “Culinary Artistry” by Andrew Dornenburg and Karen Page. I


TRIANGLE TALK Dana Mathewson, academic, athletic and eager to serve

THURSDAY · NOVEMBER 19, 2009

What would you expect from a high school senior, who is a gifted tennis player, a community volunteer with 200 hours of service her senior year and a 4.1 grade point average at a prestigious private school like Bishop’s? You might answer that the sky’s the limit. Dana Mathewson graduated from Bishop’s last June and set her academic and athletic sights on the University of Arizona, where she is adjusting to dorm life, tennis competition, academics and everything a college freshman deals with. The sky is the limit for Dana still. Dana is ranked the No. 1 Open Player in the United States Women’s Wheelchair Tennis. “I haven’t checked my international ranking in a few weeks, but last I checked I was ranked No. 22 in the world for Women’s Open singles as well. I’m pretty pleased with myself as of late. Hopefully, I can keep up my rankings, though, in the off-season,” Dana responded. Growing up in University City, she attended Mission Bay Montessori Academy and absolutely loved it. After graduating from sixth grade, she went to Bishop’s and had to repeat seventh grade due to numerous medical absences. “I got ‘sick’ or injured when I was entering sixth grade and it took my body and mind a long time to adjust to my new situation, I guess,” she said. “I say I got sick because the reason I’m in a wheelchair is a bit of a weird one.” When Dana was 10, she contracted a rare neurological disease known as Transverse Myelitis (TM). “I think I remember doctors saying only five in one million people contract it each year. Lucky me!” she said. “I was at soccer practice running sprints at the very end when I felt a sharp pain in my lower back. It almost felt like someone was stabbing me, and then my legs started to feel weaker and proceeded to get a ‘pins and needles’ feeling like when a limb falls asleep. The rest is a flash of random memories, but I do remember crying in the car on the ride home, being helped into the living room, and then lying on my living room floor. In a matter of minutes, I was completely paralyzed from my belly button down.” Transverse Myelitis affects the spinal cord and causes the

for her athletic success. “She introduced me to the SDASF basketball team, called San Diego Hammer,” Dana said. “I played the last two years in high school for that team and finished second in the nation.” Dana’s mom took her to a Coronado tennis camp several years ago. Once again Dana balked at the idea at first, but after only five minutes, she loved the camp.
