wild La Jolla Photos by Don Balch
hat so many scientific, oceanographic and environmental organizations are situated in La Jolla is no accident. The area is teeming with flora and fauna and enjoys greater environmental protections due to its incredibly rich biological diversity. Photographer Don Balch, who spends much of his time in and around the water in La Jolla, recently caught some prime examples of just how wild the waters off the coast are. Top, a sea turtle gets eye-to-eye off La Jolla Shores.
While it’s not common to come across sea turtles, Balch said, “You can be lucky enough to see one surface — and I know where to look!” Above left, kayakers get a clear water view of leopard sharks off the Shores during the first week of November, while, above right, a leopard shark shows its spots in La Jolla Cove.

The 2013 political showdown for mayor of San Diego reached a crescendo Nov. 19, setting up a runoff election sometime in February between District 2 City Councilman Kevin Faulconer (R) and District 8 City Councilman David Alvarez (D). According to semi-official results from the San Diego County Registrar of Voters Office — with 100 percent of the precincts counted — Faulconer was the runaway leader, collecting 44 percent of the ballots (89,043 votes), followed by Alvarez with 26 percent (52,283 votes). Democrat Nathan Fletcher, however, was barely trailing Alvarez with 24 percent (49,645 votes). However, on Nov. 20, Fletcher conceded and lent his endorsement to Alvarez in the runoff election, even though there are still 34,500 mail-in and provisional ballots yet to be counted, according to city spokesman Juan Alvarez. Former City Attorney Mike Aguirre did not fare well in his bid for mayor, collecting a little more than 4 percent of the vote (9,801 votes) The mail-in and provisional ballots are expected to be counted next week and could be certified as early as the end of next week, according to Alvarez. Voter turnout for the election was estimated between 30-35 percent. Thanking his major opponents Fletcher, Aguirre and Alvarez for “sacrificing their time to make San Diego better,” Faulconer said he began his campaign with a simple promise, “That together, we will restore trust and integrity to City Hall.”Now more than ever, San Diegans need a leader with a vision for this city — and the experience to make it happen; a leader San Diegans can trust — trust to lead with principles not partisanship; trust to put your city first,” Faulconer said on election night. “We took that message to the voters and guess what? You all agree.” Meanwhile, coming from single-digit support when the race kicked off to ending up with more than 25 percent of the vote on Nov. 19, Alvarez gained traction every day with a positive, grassroots campaign that focused on describing his vision for a San Diego for everyone and every neighborhood. “We started this campaign as an underdog, but we

Operation Santa calls on holiday heroes
BRINGING GOOD CHEER Members of UCSD’s Alpha Phi Omega community service organization work to bring happy holidays to families in need through Operation Santa. COURTESY PHOTO
Operation Santa, started by the Rho Pi chapter of Alpha Phi Omega at UCSD, is an annual relief project aimed at giving back to the San Diego community by helping out as many families in need during the Christmas holiday. Many of the families Operation Santa assists are single parents, military or those facing extraordinary medical expenses. Since 2007, the group’s numbers have grown from helping two families in its first year to 127 families last year. Through Operation Santa, the community can be directly involved with the families by nominating, adopting or donating to a family in need. Participants can nominate families for help through the online nomination form. As adopters of a family, participants buy gifts for a nominated family from the family’s wish list. Adopters are also given the choice of personally delivering the presents to the family. The final option for participation, donations, can be made in both
monetary and non-monetary forms all year round. Many of the families are asking for basic necessities like food, clothing and bedding. Every donation goes right back to helping the families. This year, Operation Santa has received more than 150 nominations and is still looking for adopters and donors. Adopters can fill out the online form at www.operationsantaSD.org. Donations can be made through an online PayPal link and mailing address, also found on the website. In addition, Operation Santa is inviting the community to its third annual gift-wrapping workshop on Dec. 3 from 8 to 10 p.m. at UCSD’s Price Center Ballroom East. At this event, fraternity brothers and volunteers will help wrap presents and prepare them for delivery. If you would like to adopt a family, donate or have any questions or comments, visit www.operationsantaSD.org or www.facebook.com/opsanta, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. — Staff and contribution
News Could removal of fence be solution to Cove smell? Many La Jollans believe opening — or even removing — the fence at the Cove and allowing public access to the bluffs displacing wildlife there is the solution to quenching the stench which has become a serious health problem and community irritant. Now they’re just waiting to hear if the city is going to give them the chance to test their theory. A decision is imminent by the city attorney as a result of a request by assistant chief operating officer Stacey LoMedico to open a gate, or remove a section, of the Cove fence to allow public access there while city liability for doing so is explored. The idea behind fence removal is the conviction by some that the cause of the pervasive smell emanating from the bluffs stems from the invasion of birds and marine mammals — and their inevitable feces — that has intensified since a fence was installed to keep people off the rocks. Remove the fence and allow people back out onto the cliffs and many of the animals will gradually be displaced and move away — as will the smell, the theory goes. Will that happen? It’s now up to the City Attorney’s Office to decide. In a recent letter to the La Jolla Village Merchants Association (LJVMA), which has been lobbying government officials to get the Cove stench taken care of once and for all, LoMedico wrote, “There are no restrictions to public access if a member of the public chooses to access the rocks/ cliffs. However, access is discouraged as the area can be unstable due to the erosion of the cliffs, rocks and as such there are signs
STUBBORN SMELL Some in La Jolla contend that the fence cordoning off the bluffs at La Jolla Cove has paved the way for birds and sea lions to take up residence on the rocks, thus covering them with their waste. The sea lions are of particular concern, said LJVMA executive director Sheila Fortune, since their diet, of which sardines make up a large part, makes for an especially malodorous greeting to visitors and business owners. MARIKO LAMB
posted on the fence that clearly indicates these conditions. If a member of the public chooses to take such an individual risk, it is also important to note that an individual should do so without disturbing the wildlife, birds and sea lions.” LoMedico added that, should the Cove fence be reopened, city lifeguards have the right to warn those choosing to be on the rocks if they’re in personal danger, and also have the ability to cite them if they feel they’ve harassed or mistreated federally protected marine mammals. Addressing La Jolla Town Council recently, Sheila Fortune, LJVMA executive director, discussed LoMedico’s letter and the possibility of unlocking the gate or removing all or part of the Cove fencing.

noted the Cove stench is literally making people sick. “It’s become a major health problem with a lot of businesses along Coast Boulevard complaining about people getting sick, my staff and myself included in our office,” Fortune told trustees. Noting the Cove’s rocks were treated twice to counteract bird droppings, Fortune said there’s a growing awareness that waste from sea lions may be an even bigger part of the stench problem. “Sea lions like to dine on sardines and sardines create an incredibly noxious odor,” she said. “We’re working to figure out a solution for everyone.” Alex Roth, spokesman for interim mayor Todd Gloria, told LJVMA last week, “We absolutely understand this is a big problem and we’re as concerned as folks in La Jolla are about finding some sort of solution.” Roth added that, at this point, “There are no options that really are off the table. Everything is being considered. Everything is being looked at.” But whether opening the Cove cliffs up to public access proves to be the ultimate solution, Roth said if people are allowed access they’ll have to continue to respect the rules and keep a safe distance from wildlife so there’s no harassment. Roth said the city is venturing into uncharted territory when it comes to eradicating animal-waste smells. Finding a solution, he said, is going to take some time. “This isn’t a situation where you can snap your fingers and find a solution to the sea lion poop,” he said, adding the sea lion population statewide has just “exploded, growing perhaps tenfold” from what it was a few years ago. “Whether or not we can install some sort of gate in the fence or open it up, we hope to have that answer fairly shortly,” Roth said.

Bird Rock residents: trash at overlooks has ‘become embarassing’ Bird Rockians are determined to reinstitute trash pickup at coastal overlooks discontinued since budget cuts made during Jerry Sanders’ mayoral administration. Neighbors near Forward, Midway, Moss Lane, Chelsea Place and Bird Rock Avenue turned out at Bird Rock Community Council’s (BRCC) November meeting to complain about unsightly, neglected ocean overlooks at the end of those streets. “Several residents here tonight are concerned about the coastal overlooks, primarily the trash,” said local resident Don Schmidt of La
Jolla Historical Society, who has been making the rounds of community groups speaking for neighbors about the deteriorating condition of overlooks. Schmidt distributed recent photographs taken of trash-strewn coastal overlooks. “It’s become embarrassing,” he said. “It looks like a third-world country.” A letter was read from former BRCC president Joe LaCava supporting quick resolution of the problem. “It would make a huge difference if the city could bring back community trash receptacles, large round

She pretended to be asleep, but grabbed a cell phone and called 911. One burglar noticed she had a cell phone and grabbed it out of her hands and threw it.

$100,000 in jewels stolen from Jeanne Jones A Dec. 3 preliminary hearing has been set for an accused burglar who allegedly broke into the La Jolla home of cookbook author Jeanne Jones and took jewelry worth more than $100,000 on Oct. 5. This marks the third time Jones’ home has been burglarized by jewel thieves. Four people are serving long prison terms for a 2011 incident. A former housekeeper’s boyfriend was convicted in an earlier theft. Jones’ video surveillance cameras were disconnected by the suspects and the recording device was stolen on Oct. 5.

court records. Jones’ husband was visiting a sick friend in San Jose and Jones, who is in her 70s, was home alone that night. All her doors were locked, including one to her bedroom, but the thieves were able to get inside. The thieves took a remote key and opened up one garage door and the driveway gate, dropping the remote key behind them. Jones was unable to identify Powell in a photo lineup, court records say. Powell has pleaded not guilty and remains free on $250,000 bond. He reportedly has no previous association with Jones.

All Souls’ Saint Nicholas Tour: A Tradition of Church Mice The All Souls’ Home Tour began in 1952. It was that same year that the tradition of creating handmade church mice to represent something special each year began as a fund raiser for church charities. After 61 years there still is a line outside the door that opens at 1:00pm of All Souls’ Episcopal Church for the lucky 100 people to buy this year’s edition and add to their collection. There are mice that are Angels, British Guards, Bakers, Hospice Nurses, Choir Singers, Point Loma Graduates, Scrooge and the list goes on……………….. The wedding of Princess Diana and Charles is special for All Souls’. It includes an entry in the Book of Gifts from All Souls’ for the Choir Boy Mouse sent in honor of the Royal Wedding. It began with Elizabeth “Sport” Richards who had a vision that creating handmade church mice to be collector’s items would be a wonderful way to support the church’s philanthropies. An expert in needlepoint and hand sewing, she was joined in 1973 by Marian Rodgers. They were able to produce 100 church mice a year and created a following that continues today. Each year the theme of the mouse is a secret – only revealed when the door open the day of the tour. The current “Mice Lady” is Selma Vassall. Selma has been making mice for 25 years and is still assisted by Marian Rodgers. The All Souls’ Saint Nicholas Home Tour is December 7th from 10:00-4:00. Tour five Point Loma homes, enjoy shopping at the Saint Nicholas Marketplace and lunch or tea at the café. The madrigal music of Courtly Noyse will be performed throughout the day at the church campus. Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 on the day of the tour. Visit www.all-souls.com or go to Walter Andersen Nursery, To the Point Café, Mission Hills Nursery or Ace Hardware as well for tickets.

SANDY LIPPE University City is gearing up for the holidays and the new year. Read on to find out what’s happening in the community in the coming months. • HANUKKAH LATKES AND THANKSGIVING TURKEY will be
served together in many households on Nov. 28. “The first night of Hanukkah will be on Thanksgiving this year, for the first time [in a long time],” said Burt Becker. “Thanksgiving is set as the fourth Thursday in November, meaning the latest it can be is Nov. 28. This Nov. 28 is also the earliest Hanukkah can be.” • CHRISTMAS COMES EARLIER AND EARLIER with retailers hypno-
tizing shoppers through TV commercials, displays in stores and super sales pitches. In August, our neighbor Costco shocked summer clad consumers with Christmas cards and decorations on display. By October, most stores had Halloween and Christmas gifts close together on display. Poor, neglected Turkey Day is one of the best holidays in America that focuses on family gatherings. You don’t have to buy gifts or send cards, and turkey is still reasonably priced. With latkes to add to the feast this year, life is good. • GIVING THANKS THIS NOVEM-

budget we’ve submitted to the city to the letter,” said Barbara Dunbar, the BRCC board member who administers the group’s MAD. Others in attendance wondered how much work it would actually take to clear the overlooks. “It seems like such a small item. How many minutes a day would it take someone to do this (trash pickup)?” asked local resident Mike Costello. Another concerned resident said there ought to be “some flexibility built into the contract” the MAD has with the city to alter it to allow coastal overlook trash collection. Schmidt said he’d be willing to form and participate in an ad hoc committee with the goal of arranging for overlook trash pickup. Dunbar said she’d investigate the possibility of having the MAD do trash pickup at ocean overlooks and get back to the board with her results at the group’s next meeting in February after the holiday break. BRCC meets the first Tuesday of the month at 6 p.m. Meeting locations are announced on the advisory group’s website at www.birdrockcc.org.

CIVICREPORT>> La Jolla Shores Association, Nov. 13 La Jolla Shores Association (LJSA) got a history lesson on the community’s design blueprint at its Nov. 13 meeting. At the group’s request, architect Phil Merten gave an overview of the history of the La Shores Planned District Ordinance (PDO) and La Jolla Design Manual, which prescribe what is — and is not — allowed in Shores commercial and residential development. Merten said the Shores’ PDO and design manual are distinctive in many important respects, differing from the city’s Municipal Codes, which apply to development in much of the rest of San Diego. The La Jolla Shores PDO is “unlike the typical zoning laws that apply over the entire city,” said Merten, adding the La Jolla Design Manual likewise is “unique.” The PDO and design manual are different in that they have some built-in flexibility, he said. Instead of the numerical setbacks, which apply citywide, the Shores PDO and design manual state instead that setbacks should be “in general conformity with those in the vicinity.” Shores land-use guidelines also place no limitations on building
size, requiring only that “30 percent of the property site be green landscaping.” Merten said the Shores PDO and design manual emerged during the late 1960s and early ’70s as a reaction to the multi-story building in what is now Laureate Park, and the high-rise Summer House (now La Jolla) Hotel, which led people at the time to conclude that Shores community planning was “headed in the wrong direction” and that escalating growth needed to be reined in. In subsequent years, the openness and flexibility of the PDO and design manual have led to differences of interpretation in the exact meaning of the language in the ordinance and its supporting documents.

In other news, Robert Clossin from UCSD was on hand to field questions posed by group members about the status of the Venter Center, and more specifically, about the question of accessing the facility from Torrey Pines Road. “When this first came to us, they had proposed access off Torrey Pines Road and we went nuts

Coller, the business improvement fistrict’s (BID) first president, stepped down after 3 ½ years of service, handing group leadership over to Marengo, a newly elected LJVMA board member and partner in Marengo Morton Architects. Marengo credited his predecessor with encouraging him to get involved with the BID. “The reason I ran is because I could see the positive change

and said that’s not OK, that they need to do the opposite,” said LJSA board member Janie Emerson, adding Torrey Pines is already too heavily trafficked to allow safe access to the new science research facility. “The university heard that,” said Clossin. UCSD has subsequently proposed building a driveway to provide an alternate access driveway from Venter to Expedition Way, thus bypassing access from Torrey Pines, Clossin said. “We can put a letter together and approve moving the access and get something into the record about providing entrance and egress from Expedition Way,” said LJSA chairman Tim Lucas. LJSA board member Mary Coakley-Munk asked the timeline on constructing the new access way from Venter, to which Clossin replied, “Six months. We’ve spent a lot of time redesigning it (road access).” In the same meeting, LJSA also heard replies to queries about the legality of mobile food trucks increasingly seen in the Shores.

Christmas parade owes much to donors, volunteers The 56th annual La Jolla Christmas Parade and Holiday Festival on Sunday, Dec. 8 promises to be spectacular with more than 100 entries, including beauty queens, equestrians, vintage vehicles, judged floats and the most bands ever, as well as several thousand youngsters marching in groups, with everything from Girl and Boy Scouts to school marching bands and color guards. “We’ve got 60-plus equestrians, fire engines, a bus from Birch Aquarium and Omar the camel is back,” said Ann Kerr Bache, parade organizer for the 16th year. The Holiday Festival immediately following the 2 p.m. parade is another don’t-miss event activity and a good way to get acquainted with the community and all it has to offer. “The festival will have great entertainment — arts and crafts, music, watercolor painting, surf lessons and a kids’ zone with face A star-studded lineup of parade grand marshals includes: GRAND MARSHAL: WindanSea Surf Club celebrating its 50th anniversary TRADITIONAL MARSHAL: Claudia and Willis Allen, Jr., co-owners of Crystal Pier Hotel and Cottages INNOVATION MARSHAL: Tyler Orion, interim president of CONNECT, a non profit accelerator of emerging technology and life science companies in San Diego PHILANTHROPIC MARSHAL: Sherry

Kerr Bache credited her fundraising crew of Farrell, Kellogg and McGrory with “doing a dynamite job of raising money and keeping the tradition alive, for which we as a community should be incredibly grateful.” The parade sponsor once again this year is Audrey S.

The festive day ends with the lighting of the Christmas Tree at 4:30 p.m. “We sing ‘Silent Night’ gathered around the tree, which is decorated courtesy of GDC Construction,” said Kerr Bache.

Daddy’s not home. Hasn’t been for months. He’s in the Navy, Army or any of our country’s military services. Or maybe it’s mommy — American patriots of both genders eagerly serve their country. But deployments far from home separate them from their families, and
quite importantly, from their young children. It’s tough for a kid to deal with — and for the remaining parent who’s left to explain, and make up for, the absence of the other. As a young mother and wife of a military flight surgeon, Betty Mohlenbrock experienced the stress of family separation. When her husband returned from military duty, their 2-year-old daughter didn’t recognize him. A teacher and reading specialist, she had a great idea. In 1989, she founded United Through Reading (UTR), based on a vision that America’s service members could stay connected with their families by reading aloud on video. Since then, more than 1.5 million children, parents and other caring adults have participated. The

Shores looks to be next destination for local restaurateur Village restaurateur George Hauer met with La Jolla Shores residents recently to announce his intent to convert part of the former Shores Market space at 2259 Avenida de la Playa into a Mexican restaurant. But the expansion is contingent on Hauer’s obtaining a liquor license, which could take several months. Hauer, owner of the upscale, threestory George’s at the Cove in La Jolla Village, is one of three new restaurants eyeing expansion into La Jolla Shores’ commercial strip along Avenida de la Playa. The expanding number of restaurants in the oceanside La Jolla neighborhood — which already includes a French and an Italian restaurant, as well as numerous delis, a pizza place and a sandwich shop — has led to speculation that the area is morphing into an international restaurant row. Shores merchant Terry Kraszewski, owner of Ocean Girl boutique and a member of La Jolla Shores Merchants Association, said Brick & Bell Café, with an existing restaurant at 928 Silverado St., has signed a lease for a new restaurant site on Avenida de la Playa. She said one of the owners of the Islands chain is also building a new restaurant — not a part of the Islands chain — in the Shores commercial strip. “That’s three new restaurants that are going into the easternmost block of Avenida de La Playa,” said

“George is a great operator and we’re very pleased about this development,” Kellogg said, adding it was difficult to find another independent market to move into that retail space as “big operators, large chains are just dominating, they have been able to keep (profit) margins very low, which has made it nearly impossible for small operators to compete. We’d love to have another market in that space, but I just don’t think it can happen.” Kellogg said Hauer expects to take about two-thirds of the space available on the ground level. He added the building’s upstairs level, which is inhabited by about eight different offices, won’t be affected. Kellogg said there’s about 9,000 square feet of leasable space available on both building levels. Lucas agreed the market will ultimately determine what type of new businesses will go in on Avenida de la Playa. “In this economy, retail shops are doing well, but there’s not enough foot-traffic in the Shores to support typical little beach touristy shops that do well in other communities,” he said. “So restaurants are moving in.” George’s at the Cove chef Trey Foshee said it was too early in the process to comment further on plans for Galaxy. Hauer could not be reached for comment.

Orangetheory gives La Jollans one more option for optimal health By DAVE SCHWAB
La Jolla is home to a wide range of cutting-edge fitness concepts, each with its own unique approach and each able to get you looking and feeling your best. La Jolla Today will feature a different fitness-related business in the coming issues. Be sure to check back often to find the right fit for your lifestyle and goals. Orangetheory Fitness in La Jolla Village offers a science-based approach that helps patrons find the “sweet spot” in their cardiovascular workout, allowing them to achieve maximum weight-loss and bodybuilding results. A hybrid approach that first developed in 2008, Orangetheory Fitness combines heart rate-based treadmill training with indoor rowing and weightlifting. “It’s really cross-training at its finest,” said studio owner Billy Borja, a veteran of more than 20 years in the martial arts and fitness industries. Borja explained that Orangetheory uses the Excess Post Exercise Oxygen Consumption (EPOC) program. During the course of the hour-long EPOC workout, patrons in group sessions are taken through five gradually increasing “zones” of escalating heart-rate activity via exercise on the various apparatus. “We do interval training on the treadmills, use rowers, which limit impact on the body’s joints, and freeweight dumbbells, suspension straps and medicine balls, which allow you to get your cardio and strength training in all at once,” Borja said. “The goal is to get you into the

fourth zone, the orange zone, where you’re working at 85 percent or higher of your maximum heart rate for 12 to 20 minutes. When you achieve this, it allows you to burn calories from fat up to 36 hours post-workout.” It’s the time-delay fat-burn, the “orange effect,” which makes Orangetheory’s program so revolutionary, adherents claim. Orangetheory workouts are guided by highly qualified fitness coaches who lead patrons in small groups through the program, which carefully monitors each member’s fitness levels, especially heart rate. “Each member is then emailed automatically a computer printout of their workout, how many calories are burned, maximum heart rate, how much time they’re spending in each workout zone, etc. ” said Borja. Borja, who, as a personal trainer, has tested numerous fitness modalities, said he paid a visit earlier this year to an Orangetheory fitness center in Newport Beach and could tell right away “they were on to something big.”
Best of all, the Orangetheory modality is adaptable for use by anyone no matter what their age or physical condition, Borja said. “This is the most efficient way to get into shape,” he said. “When you come to our facility, you might be next to somebody that’s 40 or 50 pounds overweight with a sedentary lifestyle who has high blood pressure and needs to lose weight through cardio training. “Or you could have an elite athlete next to you — or everyone in between.” Orangetheory is a membership fitness studio offering a variety of payment options. “We have no long-term contracts,” said Borja. “We are a month-to-month membership program. And if you are a member, you can go to any Orangetheory studio in the network at no additional cost. Orangetheory is also open every day of the year except Christmas, with classes beginning as early as 5:30 a.m. For more information, call (858) 551-8750, stop by 7734 Girard Ave., Suite C or visit www.orangetheoryfitness.com.

MUSTHEAR >> There are plenty of local bands steeped in Americana, but few could match the fire and intensity of the Tilt. Based around the duo of Jeff Irwin and Jesse Malley, with bassist John Urban and drummer Abel Vallejo, the band’s music is gritty, country-tinged, bluesinspired and rockin’ — sort of what Led Zeppelin might have sounded like if it had emerged from Southern California instead of the UK.
Malley’s vocals are great, but this is a package deal, with great originals and inspired covers by the likes of Freddie King, Janis Joplin and James Brown. Anyone looking for rock played with good old-fashioned passion will want to check out the Tilt. This is a band that loves what they do and you will to.

Inside REAL ESTATE Charles Schevker & Natasha Alexander
We have long been living with the paradigm that the best time of the year to sell a home is somewhere between April and July. Seems reasonable and everyone has their reasons for believing so. Oftentimes, the public reads the newspaper or listens to a television newscast about real estate, and then mistakenly thinks that whatever has been said applies broadly to all realestate markets. In fact, national, regional and local markets can and often do have different characteristics and driving forces that affect supply, demand and pricing — hence the reason for hiring a real-estate agent knowledgeable about the market where you want to buy or sell. When we analyze the factors that influence real-estate markets in our areas, we are often surprised. When we look at the number of home sales in San Diego County for the recent few years, clearly we see higher selling months in the second and third quarters of the year, and a decline toward the end of the year. There may be myriad reasons that contribute
So, you think you know the best time to sell your home... to this regional trend. The real interesting observation for 2012 in La Jolla was both the graduating increase in home sales throughout the entire year and the absence of a fourth-quarter decline. In fact, during the past three years in La Jolla, there have been at least as many homes sold in the fourth quarter (October, November and December) as any other time during those respective years. As has been inferred already, buyers are buying houses toward the end of the year, in spite of contrarian views. And yet, historically, more listing contracts are cancelled or withdrawn, meaning homes are removed from the market, during the fourth quarter than at nearly any other time of the year. Presumably, this happens because our paradigm tells us that houses do not sell during the holiday seasons, or perhaps because sellers do not want the added stress of preparing and showing their houses during this time of the year for fear of interrupting holiday planning. More frightening yet might be the possibility that should a buyer present an attractive offer, the buyer will likely want to celebrate the holidays in their new house, kicking out the sellers to enjoy the festive year-end by drinking hot chocolate in a nearby hotel.
REAL ESTATEBRIEFS >> Real estate brothers await sentencing in La Jolla fraud Two real-estate brokers who are also brothers have pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud in the sale of expensive homes in La Jolla, Del Mar and San Diego. Both Adel Atkarian, 40, and Atef Atkarian, 38, have surrendered their U.S. and Iranian passports as part of terms in posting $100,000 bond and agreed not to reapply. They have also agreed
not to work in real estate while free on bond. They will be sentenced on March 17 before U.S. District Court Judge John Houston. Adel Afkarian lives in Carlsbad and his brother lives in Slidell, La. The brothers admitted they fraudulently obtained the proceeds of the sales of homes from innocent purchasers who were unaware of the existence of outstanding liens on the properties held by banks, according to the
G IN K AS
Here is something else that most people do not realize: the slowest-selling periods seem to be in January and February — ironically, just when all of those previously cancelled and withdrawn contracts are coming back on the market. Take all of what is written here in caution. The walk-away is that, with all other things being reasonably stable in the economy, if you were considering to list your home for sale, do so when you are (1) motivated, (2) when it
U.S. Attorney’s Office. They allegedly used sham entities to record documents falsely with fraudulent deeds of trust to eliminate the existing debt to banks. The addresses of some of the La Jolla homes are listed in court records, and it includes a pledge by prosecutors not to pursue further charges on specified addresses in La Jolla. Documents say there were omissions in loan applications that were listed in other people’s names. The brothers allegedly deceived mortgage lenders with straw buyers.
fits your planning and/or (3) when the market data suggests is a proactive time, not so much by when you have always heard is the best cycle or season to sell. In addition, our advice is to consult with a knowledgeable and competent real-estate agent who keeps track of home-sales metrics and can provide that valuable information so you can determine for yourself when the market conditions appear to be attractive to you. A case-in-point was when too many buyers were caught by surprise back in years 2005/06, presumably because they expected the wave to continue and that they simply did not have access to the trending data that could have warned them otherwise. Remember, as part of your planning process to sell, consult with a trusted real-estate agent who can provide you the information and trending that you need in making your decisions. If you have any questions about real estate in San Diego, send your inquiries to Charles Schevker, or Natasha Alexander at Cschevker@san.rr.com. They will respond directly to you, and those questions that have a broader public appeal will be published along with our next column in La Jolla Today.
The brothers have agreed to forfeit more than $388,000 in cash and one property they own in Rancho Penasquitos, according to court records. — Neal Putnam Realty ONE Group expanded with the opening of its office in Carlsbad area off Palomar Airport Road. The office is one of the first locations for what is expected to be a wide footprint throughout San Diego, led by Tina King, who is responsible for overseeing local operations. King, a veteran real-
estate professional, was a top producer with Keller Williams Realty, where she later became a productivity coach, pioneering a program that was implemented regionally. “Tina’s extensive experience in the industry, coupled with her proven performance as a mentor, will ensure our success as we take the San Diego area by storm,” said Kuba Jewgieniew, Realty ONE Group’s founder and CEO. “She has coached more than 1,000 agents in her career, and if local

Real Estate Today Town Council hears about charity aid, Village Garden Club and more By DAVE SCHWAB The La Jolla Town Council (LJTC) got a lesson on international humanitarian aid at its November meeting. Michael Whipple, CEO of International Orphan Care (IOC), a nonprofit, non-political humanitarian organization supporting schools and medical clinics in Herat and Jalalabad in Afghanistan, said that country has been devastated by war since the Soviet invasion in 1979. “More than 1.5 million children have lost their parents and there are more than 700,000 orphans living in sub-poverty conditions,” Whipple said. Whipple told trustees about the plight of Khalida, a teenage Afghani severely disfigured by tumors who has been brought back to San Diego to undergo expert plastic reconstruction surgery to her face. “Our organization is about people who care, want to be involved and make a difference,” said Whipple. “There are enormous problems throughout the world we can’t help, but if we can have an impact on one other person, it has an impact on your life.” Whipple also talked about a jobtraining program the IOC offers Afghan women, which teaches them how to become seamstresses, as well as presenting them with a $75 tool kit at the end of the program, allowing them to buy a rudimentary sewing machine to get them started in home businesses to earn money.

She refuses to entertain discussion about moving to a retirement home. What should we do? I believe that all moms and dads and aunts and uncles ought to stay at home as long as it is safe to do so. There are services that evaluate and help adjust a home for safety and ease of movement for aging loved ones. For about $300-$500, you can have an assessment done and then get the changes made with the help of a contractor. Negotiate with the parent that this will
be an interim step and further changes might be needed in the future. Remember from a financial point of view, staying home is the least expensive way forward. Hiring caretakers for specific needs like housekeeping or bathing costs less than the same services at a facility. It requires more planning and attention from you. However, your loved ones will be much happier. — SharonAnn Hamilton is author of The Retirement Concierge, a baby boomer’s playbook for navigating the future.

Joseph Hester, captain of the first Coast Guard ship to adopt UTR’s program, told how childhood reading helped him choose his career and made him the person he is today. While deployed, UTR helped keep him and his crew in touch with their young children. Short videos also helped illustrate UTR’s work, encouraging the enthusiastic audience’s generosity. An 18-item live auction and a donation paddle-raise helped the event raise about $350,000 for the cause.

We share a vision for the future of San Diego, where we invest in our neighborhoods, protect our environment and strengthen the middle class. I look forward to broadening the coalition of San Diegans who share that vision too.” Fletcher, a Qualcomm executive, reportedly will return to private life and give up politics. “[Alvarez] will make a great mayor,” he said when he conced-

said, “This is definitely a time of transition, a time of change.” Chow pointed to the growing success of the annual Pillage The Village Halloween event, aided this year by the La Jolla Real Estate Brokers Association (REBA), as an example of a homegrown event whose success the BID needs to build on. “I was impressed, not only with the number of kids, but with the number of parents walking in the Village,” he said, adding the event gave great exposure to Village
businesses, especially those, like his camera shop, which have changed locations. “Pillage the Village is the type of event we’d like to grow,” said Marengo. Baroudi, whose son won the event’s costume contest, said, “Kids look forward to it all year. The first thing they do after school (on Halloween) is Pillage the Village.” James Niebling, who heads LJVMA’s Design Division, implored the merchant group in its upcom-
ing strategic planning to capitalize on its ongoing Haute La Jolla Nights program, which brings live entertainment and merchant discounts drawing patrons to the Village on select summertime Saturday nights. “It’s something we should extend through the holiday time,” he said. “I cannot emphasize enough how much goodwill — and awareness — a community event like this brings. It’s really important for our community to keep that event going.”
