Lady Torreys crowned state volleyball champs BY DAVE THOMAS | VILLAGE NEWS
The goal of any scholastic team is to be playing in the final game of the season when the title is on the line. Winning that contest is even better. The La Jolla Country Day (LJCD) girls volleyball team accomplished both tasks last weekend in the state title game in Irvine. Advancing to their first-ever state title game, the Lady Torreys left the UC Irvine Bren Events Center last Saturday with the state championship in hand, scoring a 25-19, 25-20, 25-17 victory over the Sacramento Christian
Brothers team. Finishing an outstanding season with a record of 35-1, LJCD carried on the tradition of Southern California schools, claiming the region’s fifth title in six years of play against the north. “The team played strong all year and this was more of the same,” LJCD head coach Peter Ogle commented. “We have a good starting team, but the strength of our team is the ability to practice at a very high level. It is our reserves that push us every practice that kept us improving and sharp. It was just a tremenSEE CHAMPS, Page 2

International artists take viewers ‘Off Beaten Path’ BY ADRIANE TILLMAN | VILLAGE NEWS
The latest art exhibition at UCSD aims to sensitize people to the pain, violence and oppression that afflict women through art that enables the viewer to empathize with feeling vulnerable, violated or deliberately masking pain – rather than zeroing in on the act of violence itself. Artist Yoko Ono, for example, created a video called “Cut Piece” in which she’s sitting on a stage allowing people to take scissors and snip a piece of her dress, like
vultures stripping her bare. Some cutters seem to simply want a square of her dress as a souvenir, while another cutter takes the opportunity to snip her dress at the strap causing the front of her dress to fall and expose her. Called “Off The Beaten Path: Violence, Women and Art,” the exhibition features 21 artists and organizations from 19 countries and is being held through Dec. 12 at the University Art Gallery on the west end of the Mandeville Center at UCSD.

Two oceanographers at Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) are on the cusp of cracking the mysteries of red tides and marine-protected areas (MPAs). Recently, Jules Jaffe and Peter Franks, both professors at SIO, won two grants from the National Science Foundation (NSF) totaling nearly $2.5 million. This money will support their efforts to build and develop underwater robots that measure physical characteristics and currents in the ocean. Ultimately, this data will provide information about red tides and MPAs as well as oil spills, airplane crashes, algae blooms and other phenomena that have eluded researchers for so many years. The robots, called
We’re sampling clouds by sticking a balloon on a wire and leaving it there ... PETER FRANKS SIO
Autonomous Underwater Explorers (AUEs), will be about a liter in size and placed in groups underwater near an area of interest to oceanographers. Collaborators strive to understand “clouds” beneath the surface of the ocean. The exact makeup of these clouds is yet to be
explained but is most likely microorganisms that live in a cluster and travel with ocean currents. These clouds are currently inaccessible from the surface of the water and not visible by satellite. “We’re sampling clouds by sticking a balloon on a wire and leaving it there for a long period of time — watching clouds go by,” Franks said. In order to effectively submerge and resurface these AUEs, Jaffe and Franks will need to perfect the size and shape of the robots to control buoyancy. By sinking and floating the AUEs they can lower and raise them from the surface of the water to their underwater destination. If researchers are able to place hundreds of these AUEs in vicinSEE ROBOTS, Page 4

NEWS Bishop’s moves on; LJCD sees season end BY DAVE THOMAS | VILLAGE NEWS
A pair of local football teams saw action last weekend in the CIF Division V semifinals, with only one of them happy with the results. The Bishop’s School advanced to the finals (Dec. 11) to meet Francis Parker after scoring a wild 28-27 win over Christian. Alec Fisher tallied a pair of touchdowns for Bishop’s. Christian rallied to within a point late in the game, but Bishop’s blocked a PAT attempt after a score to win the contest. In the other semifinal, Francis Parker rolled to a 42-14 win over La Jolla Country Day School, as Deon Randall and Kenny Brookins accounted for a pair of touchdowns each for the Lancers. LJCD senior tailback Montell Allen rushed for 124 yards on 25 carries, junior QB Ruben Pena threw for 103 yards (one TD), and

LJCPA bucks task force on dispensaries BY ADRIANE TILLMAN | VILLAGE NEWS
The La Jolla Community Planning Association (LJCPA) voted 83-2 to reject a proposal to demolish the existing structure at 6767 Neptune Place in Windansea and build a 24-residential rental unit. City staff will consider LJCPA’s recommendation in its decision on the project. LJCPA met Dec. 3. Claude-Anthony Marengo presented the project on behalf of Marengo Morten Architects Inc., located on Girard Avenue in La
Jolla. Marengo said the building will not block neighbors’ views. Trustees argued the bulk and scale of the proposed building is not appropriate for the Windansea neighborhood. Trustee Phil Merten voted in favor of the project, however, stating the architects had made considerable efforts to set back the building from the street to open the view corridor to the ocean. Resident of the current building, Devin Burstein, spoke ardently against the project. He argued that
razing the current building would mean demolishing “one of the few places left in La Jolla for affordable housing.” Burstein is a public defender and his girlfriend works for the American Cross. “Just because something can be done doesn’t mean it should be done,” Burstein said. “The bulk and scale of the building is so far out of the character of Windansea and La Jolla.” The Neptune Place project is SEE LJCPA, Page 4

ity, they are more likely to detect clouds and other underwater activity than if they are only able to place one or two robots at a time. They can collect data, take pictures and send all of the information to a computer where researchers can access all the data via the internet. The grants also support the analysis of the data after it is collected in order to understand water flow beneath the surface of the water. Computer algorithms will be designed in order to process the incoming data from the AUEs. The researchers hope to have a team of people trained to assimilate data from the AUE. Ultimately, all of this information will help oceanographers understand more about how and why conditions change in the ocean. MPAs, for example, will be easier to track if researchers understand how coastal currents move. MPAs serve as seed grounds for organisms to proliferate and then travel to other marine areas. If swarms of robots were allowed to collect data within an MPA, researchers could calculate the conditions within which these organisms thrive. Another underwater enigma that researchers hope to study with AUEs is red tides. Little is currently known about how and why red tides appear. With the new AUE devices, organisms can be sampled and analyzed to predict the location of red tides and the direction they are moving. Jaffe and Franks each have different areas of expertise and this makes them complement each other as partners on the project. Franks is a physical oceanographer with little training in robotics or engineering, while Jaffe is an expert in robotics and engineering. The two started working together about 15 years ago on a collaboration that has evolved into a marriage of sorts. “He described me the other day as being his wife at work,” Franks stated. “I’m the science end of things and he’s the instrument designer…. maybe we’re like Laurel and Hardy.” Jaffe also incorporates a science outreach and literacy component within his instrument design. The grant includes1 money to support students to build AUEs, collect data and analyze it via the Internet. “Generally, I’m interested in getting kids interested in science,” Franks said. His plan is to have high school teachers come to the SIO campus and create a curriculum for students about the AUEs. This curriculum will include ecology, engineering, physics and other related subjects. After mastering these subjects, students will build and deploy their own AUEs and then access their own data on the internet. “They would see the AUE online,” Jaffe said. He hopes to reinforce the discovery and invention components of science education — components that serve to excite students are science and inspire them to pursue it as a career. Whether it be for the study of underwater currents or the mentoring and education of future oceanographers, SIO researchers spend grant money in pursuit of the ocean. ■
domestic violence. “I wasn’t as interested in the shock value, and in some ways that feels equally disturbing – it’s like more of the same in terms of horror of violence,” Rosenberg said. “It’s like creating more violence.” Some pieces portray a more positive outlook, such as Miwa Yanagi’s project in which she asked young girls to describe themselves 50 years from now and then photographed those girls in that scenario using makeup and digital tactics to age the participants. The girls projected themselves as
mature women of stature enjoying power, respect and adventure, refuting the negative connotations of older women as crones, useless and past their prime. Relating myriad experience A handful of people sat riveted on a Saturday evening in November listening to a panel of five activists speak about their experiences and work to reverse the culture of violence and oppression against women that pervades places like Sudan, Iran, Iraq and India. The Nov. 14 lecture at UCSD corresponded with the recent exhibition at the University Art Gallery. The panelists were frank about their personal experiences. Dep Tuany arrived in America in 1991 after living in a refugee camp for 12 years and losing his son to water-borne disease. Tuany showed two photos of a victim of cultural violence. In one, a young, fair woman stared solemnly at the camera, dressed in a fashionable sweater, wearing earrings and jewelry with her uncovered hair slicked back into a ponytail. She was 20 years old and attending college. In the adjacent photo, the woman’s face is severely burnt and disfigured with one eye bulging out and the other one gone. The young woman’s family had married her off to a 40-year-old man whom she

Artist Gabriela Morawetz created a haunting portrayal of the bed, which for many is a symbol of rejuvenation and the dream world, but for others is a place of violation and vulnerability. In one image, the bed shows a stark frame and a mattress piled high with fragile glass balls. The art and its accompanying text is far more thought-provoking than simulating images of rape and

did not love. After refusing intercourse with him, her husband sent her home but she was returned to her husband. The husband bought a chemical and asked his brotherin-law to perform a “ritual” over the woman to cure her objections to intercourse. He poured the chemical over his sister and burnt her face badly. Tuany said economics plays a heavy role in the continued oppression of women since families welcome the dowry the man brings. In 1995, Tuany founded the Southern Sudanese Community Center in San Diego to support other refugees. Panelist Cima Rahmankhah was born shortly before the Islamic Revolution of 1979 and has lived her entire life under a regime that forced women to split their identities between their home and public
lives. Rahmankhah showed a silent video of a woman reading at home, wiggling her brightly painted toes, and then wiping off her plum lipstick and dressing in a burka to cover her hair, feet and banned literature to face the outside world. The women are monitored carefully for make-up, which may be wiped off with broken glass in the streets, reported Farrah Douglas, the first female to publish a novel in Iran who was evacuated in 1979. Douglas runs a printing company, CDS Printing, in Carlsbad and is the president of 5 Women Who Care.

Holiday lighting: tips on keeping it safe BY CHRISTINA HANSEN
hile holiday decorating is all about adding fun, sparkle and warmth to a very special season, it’s important to remember that many of our favorite decorations carry the risk of fire or electrical injury if not used carefully. Don’t let a preventable accident take the enjoyment out of your holidays. Take a few minutes to consider these decorating safety tips.
Lights and Decorations When shopping for lights, electric decorations and extension cords, purchase only the ones that are UL-listed. If you’re planning to decorate outdoors, make sure that you use lights and decorations that are rated for outdoor use. Putting indoor-only products outside in the weather can result in electric shock and fire hazards. If you’re in doubt as to whether light strings are rated for indoor or outdoor use, just check the colorcoded UL mark on the product’s package. A green holographic UL mark says, “indoors only, please,” while a red one indicates that the product is safe for both indoor and outdoor use. Whether they’re brand-new out of the box or seasoned veterans from holidays past, before you put them up, inspect all lights, electric decorations and extension cords for signs of damage to wire insulation, plugs and bulbs. If cords and plugs are damaged, discard and replace the decoration. Always unplug lights before changing bulbs, replacing fuses or making any other repairs. If you need to replace a bulb in a string of Christmas lights, make sure that the wattage rating of the replacement bulb you’re using matches that of the light strand. Using a bulb with too
high a wattage can cause the light string to overheat, creating a fire risk. When hanging Christmas lights outdoors, reduce your risk of electric shock by passing up metal ladders in favor of ladders made of non-conductive materials like wood or fiberglass-reinforced plastic. Before you begin decorating, verify how many strands of lights it is safe to connect end-to-end (as a general rule, it’s 3). Be careful not to overload extension cords. Before you start plugging in, find out the wattage rating of your extension cord, as well as the power requirements of any lights or decorations you’re planning to plug into it. A wattage rating is the amount of electricity that an extension cord is built to carry, and if the combined power requirements (or “pull”) of your lights and decorations exceed that rating, overheating and fire can occur. Every so often, check Christmas light wires to make sure that they’re not warm to the touch. Always turn off all Christmas lights and decorations before going to bed or leaving the house. — Christina Hansen is a product specialist at CableOrganizer.com, a leading provider of cable, wire and equipment management solutions. ■

Please pretend to care about local schools Ruben Barrales, president of the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce, feels the city needs to “rush” to finance a new $1 billion stadium for the Chargers (Guest editorial, Village News, Dec. 3, page 6). On the same page, another letter suggests cutting the annual school year for San Diego schools by 10 days to save $60 million and avoid proposed teacher layoffs and the elimination of librarians, school nurses, music and sports programs. We understand that Chamber members who own land in the East Village stand to profit from a new stadium. However, they could at least pretend to care about local schools which are far more important to the city’s economic future than yet another gold-plated stadium. Kevin Clewley La Jolla

Yes, change needs to be made, but not on the back of our national debt. Change the way we provide programs – let middle America small business audit big government-run programs and watch how much fat can be cut, red tape can be eliminated and unnecessary spending be stopped. I would love a chance at that! Pat Hom Pacific Beach

WINTER SPORTS PREVIEW
Lady cagers hope to net CIF gold
Vikes, Knights hope to repeat as champions
BY DAVE THOMAS | VILLAGE NEWS
Winning girls basketball teams at La Jolla Country Day (LJCD) School and The Bishop’s School is nothing new. As the new season tipped off recently, expect things to stay the same at the two Coastal League schools this winter. LJCD returns its top seven players, while adding two new talented freshmen. LJCD returns senior starting point guard Ariana Elegado and senior Chemayne Shipley, a multidimensional player who has three-point range. Returning juniors include Gillian Howard, who is considered one of the top post players in the country in the class of 2011; Kaylah Miller, a shooter with three-point range and Shayla Dinwiddie, who brings valuable experience to the team. They also return sophomore twins Maya and Malina Hood, both multidimensional players who cause havoc on both ends of the floor. Finally, the Lady Torreys added two freshmen, Briteesha Solomon, a 5foot-8-inch high-flyer who can touch rim, and Kelsey Plum, a lefty guard who can shoot and knows how
to score. With their valuable experience and addition of the new impact freshmen, the Lady Torreys expect to contend for a ninth CIF title and a trip to the state

Champions. LJCD has also scheduled non-league games with Beverly Hills, Villa Park and Mt. Miguel. At The Bishop’s School, another perennial power awaits opponents in the Coastal League and beyond. Head coach Marlon Wells and the Lady Knights went 30-3 a season ago, winning the CIF Division IV crown and losing in the Southern California regional finals. Three starters return from last year’s stellar squad: seniors Briana Martinez and Elaina White, and junior Alissa Campanero. “We have a strong nucleus coming back from last year’s team, and we look to get back to the CIF championship,” Wells said. Bishop’s carried a 3-1 record following action last week, including a 66-24 thumping of Steele Canyon. In the win over Steele Canyon, White led the way with 21 points, with double-digit points also from Martinez (14 points), Campanero (12) and Bryn Stark (11).
championship. “This team has the ability to control the tempo of the game,” LJCD head coach Terri Bamford commented. “Offensively, we are multidimensional and have the ability to shoot threes, dominate in the post and attack the basket.” LJCD opened up its nonleague schedule last week in the seventh annual Sweet Sixteen Invitational — Editor’s note: La Jolla Basketball Tournament.

After successful seasons last year on the hardwood, area scholastic boys basketball teams are eyeing repeat performances this winter. At La Jolla High, head coach Kamal Assaf’s Vikings return six players (three in the backcourt) from a CIF championship team (Division III) that went 17-15 a season ago. La Jolla won eight of its last nine games last year to finish strong in capturing its second straight CIF crown. The Vikings will look to senior tri-captains Taylor Davis (All-Western League selection), Jack Latta and Max Greenberg to lead the way. “This year’s team should benefit from the big games they played in last year,” Assaf said. “There is a mental toughness and a confidence with these seniors which helps them provide an excellent example to the underclassmen. We have the senior experience and leadership to take on what might be our most challenging game schedule in the six years that I have coached at La Jolla.” According to Assaf, the Vikings look to be a physical, defensive-minded team that will emphasize rebounding. “We will try to run and attack in transition and play up-tempo team basketball,” Assaf said. “We have an excellent junior class with size and skill. They are making practice very competitive. We feel our juniors will improve over the course of the competitive December non-league schedule and provide us the depth to play an attacking style of basketball for the entire 32 minutes during the compet-
itive Western League beginning in January 2010. We look forward to a great season and are eager to begin another outstanding journey together.” At the neighboring Bishop’s School, the Knights under head coach Tom Tarantino finished 25-5 last season and were Division IV CIF champions. Key returnees this winter include Malik Love (all-CIF a year ago, 20 points, 10 rebounds, five assists as a junior) and junior Stephen Kaiser (10 points, 12 rebounds a year ago). Additional starters include sophomores Dominique Love and Dominique Watkins, and junior Ryan Chong. “The team will be young with Malik Love as the lone senior; however, the Knights will be among the quickest teams in San Diego and will play a fast- paced, exciting style of basketball,” Tarantino noted. At La Jolla Country Day School, head coach Ryan Meier and the Torreys went 1514 a season ago. Meier will look to several returning starters to lead the way, including leading scorer and co-leading rebounder Ryan Watt (14 ppg., eight rpg.), co-leading rebounder Franke Bamford (eight rpg.) and assist leader Kai Tuites (four assists per game). Freshman guard Sage Burmeister is also expected to contribute. According to Meier, good perimeter play will carry this team. “It’s an unselfish group of boys that will provide for effective team play, good ball movement and great team chemistry,” Meier said. “We’re a scrappy group of young men that won’t get outworked on the court.”

Again ‘Grinch’ charms young and old BY CHARLENE BALDRIDGE | VILLAGE NEWS
The Old Globe opened its 12th annual “Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas!” Nov. 27. The annual feast for children of all ages continues through Dec. 27 at the landmark Balboa Park Theatre. Each year, the critic attends kicking and screaming, “Oh, no! Not again!” Each year she experiences what can only be described as Grinch nostalgia. Having watched the eyes of little children fill with wonder, she comes away inspired and resolved to be less jaded in the New Year. John Lee Beatty’s Who-Ville set is unchanged. Each costume created by Globe associate artist Robert Morgan remains essentially the same, setting up memories of performances past, bygone portrayals of Young Max, Old Max and the furry green Grinch himself. Only Grandma Who (silvery soprano Eileen Bowman) is still played by the woman who created the role in 1998. The most amazing phenomenon and legacy is the stream of CindyLou Whos who have graced the production over the years. Mel Marvin’s music is not simple and has a big range for a youngster, who must hold her own in the show’s hit song “Santa for a Day.” This year’s Cindy-Lou, 5-year-old Shea Starrs Siben, stole every heart opening night. Shea first saw “Grinch” at 3, when her elder sister Skylar played Cindy-Lou. Shea now plays Cindy-Lou, sharing the role with 9-year-old Anna Bahen, who plays alternate performances. All the Who children are double cast.

Many readers know the story written by Dr. Seuss, Theodor “Ted” Geisel, who lived in La Jolla. After his death, Geisel’s widow, Audrey, gave the children of San Diego the gift of this “Grinch.” The show, which has since proliferated, premiered in its present form at the Globe in 1998, under the childlike direction of then artistic director Jack O’Brien. Old Max (the Grinch’s dog), who wanted to see the place once more, returns to Who-Ville, and as he tells the tale encounters his youthful self as well as all the citizens of WhoVille, from whom the Grinch (“You’re One of a Kind”) determines to steal Christmas. Having taken all the toys, trees and roast beasts, the Grinch, whose heart has already been touched by Cindy-
Lou, hears the Whos celebrating anyway. He realizes that Christmas is about something more than its accompaniments. The current production, directed for the third year by Benjamin Endsley Klein, is excellent. Music director John Samorian conducts the large company, and his eight-piece Who-Chestra lends excellent support, especially to the youngest singer/performers, who find their pitches and are well-heard, thanks to Paul Peterson’s excellent sound design. Favorite musical moments are “Who Likes Christmas,” “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch” and the elder Whos’ quartet “This Time of Year.” It’s guaranteed that one goes home singing “Santa for a Day.” In his Old Globe debut as the Grinch, Broadway veteran Jeff Skowron is a keeper, pitch perfect, vocally interesting and not too scary. Martin Van Treuren, returning as Old Max, is the absolute best, dramatically and vocally, and Logan Lipton’s second outing as Young Max is a joy. The critic was accompanied by a friend three years older than she. It was her first experience of the show, and she was absolutely captivated. It’s fun for the experienced “Grinch”-goer to see wonder reflected in the eyes of newbies, whether youthful or aged. “Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas” continues through Dec. 27, with performances scheduled at times that accommodate families with small children and grownups as well.

Speakers, givers Starry, starry nights and players with Vincent Andrunas Northern La Jolla is a hotbed of activity in the biosciences, and The Burnham Institute for Medical Research is one of its most prestigious organizations. Research done there helps people lead better and longer lives. Lillian Fishman and her late husband, Dr. William Fishman, were longtime supporters of the Institute. After her husband passed away in 2001, Lillian and her friend Reena Horowitz decided to start a discussion group, which came to be called The Group of 12. Gathering at the Institute once a month, their midday “meetings” begin with a short social session, followed by a talk presented by an interesting personage. Reena and her co-chair, Doreen Schonbrun, come up with great speakers — artists, writers, scientists, historians and others have addressed the group. Their subjects have included health advances, novels inspired by artworks, and even the history of the Tiffany Company. Word has gotten around, and their numbers have grown — now they’re called The Group of 12 and Friends. Their December meeting drew 83 interested listeners to hear Dr. Joe Shurman speak about pain — a subject with which we are all familiar, but which in many ways is still mysterious to the medical community. The enlightening talk was followed by lots of good cheer, since this meeting was also the group’s holiday party. When Dan Mulvihill founded The Mercy 1000, he was hoping to attract 1,000 people to become supporters of Scripps Mercy Hos-
pital. But the group became much more enthusiastic than Dan might have expected. It has become a key support group of individuals who make an annual unrestricted donation of $1,000 or more to the hospital. Members receive a number of benefits, including informative publications, courtesy parking at Scripps hospitals, personal assistance from foundation staff during stays at Mercy and, of course, the gratitude of the Sisters of Mercy. They also receive invitations to special events, including the annual Mercy 1000 Holiday Reception, a very elegant affair hosted early this month by the La Valencia in their Verandah Room.
Mercy 1000 1 Dan and Mary Mulvihill, Tom Gammiere
The very next evening, that same Verandah Room was the scene of the debut gala of a new La Jolla-based organization. Project Active, founded in June of this year, is an initiative of The La Jolla Foundation. It is their ambitious goal to send athletic equipment around the world to children in 41 war zones (which they define as areas with 1,000 or more battlefield deaths). “We want the children to pick up athletic equipment before they pick up a gun, so we’ll send soccer balls [and other sporting goods],” said La Jolla Foundation Chairman Mitch Thrower. “We’re diffusing world tension through sport.” Their inaugural event introduced a large and enthusiastic young crowd to the organization with an evening that included hors d’oeuvres, wine tasting, a silent auction, and live entertainment.

Village chefs get ready for feasting BY ADRIANE TILLMAN | VILLAGE NEWS
Part V in a holiday series The season of repast is underway. “Load the table until it breaks” is an apt Russian idiom for the occasion. The La Jolla Village News decided to pop into a few village kitchens to see what the chefs have on the bubble. Chef Ryan Johnston at Whisknladle (1044 Wall St.) can describe a dish so aptly one may begin to salivate on this
page. He savors the quality of local vegetables from niche farms, and prefers to highlight each vegetable with complementary ingredients rather than mask them in a dish. But don’t be fooled: simplicity doesn’t mean easy or mundane. Chef Johnston likes to eat sweet potatoes, for example, but he spices them up with fresh Habanera chilies and mixes in half-and-half and some Parmesan cheese. He grills persimmons like corn to serve with salami, arugula, Parmesan cheese and garlic
vinaigrette. Johnston hates steamed broccoli and cauliflower so he caramelizes it: blanch, cool, cook in olive oil with any variety of flavors, such as capers, bacon, orange zest or black anchovies. For the holidays, he plans to set off his turkey with a chestnut stuffing that includes roasted Chanterelle mushrooms and parsnips. Johnston said he finds his inspiration by reading Spanish, French, Italian and MorocSEE CHEFS, Page 15

exchange for carrying Sonya Dakar’s Skincare latest product line. “[Sonya Dakar] chose Spa MD because Dianne is very glamorous and she is a celebrity herself,” said Roma Cannizzaro, a publicist for York-Goldman. “Sonya wants to be surrounded by people who can mimic her and bring more to her product.” York-Goldman previously lived in Beverly Hills, where she acted and modeled, and she said her clients were asking for Sonya Dakar’s products. York-Goldman handpicks her products, as well as her physicians. She recently brought on the acclaimed plastic surgeon Richard Chaffoo, and she plans to expand her medical treatments to offer cosmetic dentistry, anti-aging hormonal treatment, vascular treatment and a physician focused on weight loss. York-Goldman has a long-range vision of opening La Jolla Spa MD branches in New York, Dallas and Chicago and then moving into the spa market in Tokyo and Dubai. In her charity work, she is planning a trip to South Africa to distribute Unovus sanitary napkins to young girls who are prevented from going to school while having their periods. La Jolla Spa MD’s massages and skin, hair and nail products rejuvenate, but creating beauty is not just a walk in the park. “Not all treatments are enjoyable; it’s not just about being pampered,” York-Goldman said. “Our clients are driven by results and visible results and that’s what we’re known for.” Spa MD’s newest treatments Recently, La Jolla Spa MD introduced three new services in the areas of detecting breast cancer, alleviating insomnia and anxiety and targeting migraines, digestive problems and arthritis.

La Jolla Spa MD welcomes Dennis Maness, who has developed Neuro Stimulation Sound Therapy that he said helps re-train or rewire people’s brains using sound waves to alleviate insomnia, low self-esteem, weight management, migraines and pain. Maness holds a Ph.D. in education and a master’s degree in neuro-biology. Each session costs $150. “People see more clearly,” Maness said. “Their cognitive reaction is faster. They sleep better. I’ll teach you how to teach yourself.” Hydrating is the key to life, but La Jolla Spa MD aims to step it up a notch by selling alkaline water, converted via a machine, which clinicians say helps the body fight off disease. The spa sells Athena Ionic Water systems, which produce four different levels of alkaline water, as well as acidic water for plants. The water converters cost $1,500 or $4 per gallon at Spa MD.

can cookbooks. His advice for the season is as always: “Use the freshest ingredients possible. Go to your local farm because what you put into your body is very important.” Jean-Michel Diot, the head chef and owner of Tapenade at 7612 Fay Ave., is enjoying a variety of game this time of year. He is busily preparing white boar from Texas, axis venison from Texas and poultry from Scotland. Diot personally enjoys scrambling eggs with black truffles or a good lobster. His advice for the season: “Cook with love — you will succeed in your recipe.” Chef Ryan Johnson of Whisknladle and Prep Kitchen considers carmelized brocoli and cauliflower a taste treat. Famous people who have stopped by Sante Ristorante include the late Walter Cronkite (below, left) with owner Tony Buonsante.
Before December sneaks by, Tony Buonsante would like to come to your table at his restaurant, Sante Ristorante at 7811 Herschel Ave, and slice some white truffles onto your platter of gnocchi, pasta or fish. The smell of the white truffles will waft throughout the entire room, he says. The season for the fall-harvested white truffles is nearing an end and Buonsante has purchased about seven ounces of the white truffles from Alba in northern Italy for about $187 per ounce. Finding a restaurant that sells the white truffle is rare, but Buonsante has sold them for 23 years in La Jolla and understands how to prepare them. Born in Italy in the small town of Mola Di Bari, Buonsante arrived in New York at the age of 19 to work his way through kitchens until he finally opened an Italian restaurant, La Fenice, in New York, which he operated for 10 years.

He is proficient in cooking both cuisines, and said experience has taught him how to cook more than any book training. Plus, the restaurant business runs in the family. “You need to know how to put ingredients together,” Ghanem said. “It’s like painting.
