The coming of the king tides The attention of many San Diegans has, in recent days, been drawn to the coast — specifically, the decrease in coastal land as the city experiences a phenomena that, according to some scientists, may occur more and more frequently in coming years: the king tide. King tides, known scientifically as a perigean spring tide, occur when the earth, moon and sun align to create the highest tides of the year, said Travis Pritchard, water-quality lab manager for San Diego Coastkeeper. What’s special about them, Pritchard said, is their ability to show us the future. “The king tides allow us a chance to view what will become the new normal sea level,” Pritchard wrote in an email. “Add the effects of [normal] tides and storm surges — pulses of high water levels similar to those that affected New York during Hurricane Sandy — to this new sea level and San Diego’s infrastructure becomes vulnerable. We believe this gives us an opportunity to consider these impacts to ensure coastal communities like La Jolla build for the future.” According to Pritchard and climate scientists, communities like La Jolla could experience a loss of beach habitat and an increase in coastal cliff erosion. The sea level in San Diego is expected to rise 12 to 18 inches by 2050, and the city could lose between 35 and 43 percent of its beaches over the next century.

The waste- and bird-covered rocks at La Jolla Cove. DON BALCH | Village News

The saga of the smell at the Cove continues BY DAVE SCHWAB | VILLAGE NEWS Photographer Don Balch caught these photos from the same location in La Jolla, one of a 7.2-foot high tide on the morning of Dec. 13 (above) and another, left, of a -1.9-foot low tide during the same afternoon.

Who can quell the smell from hell? At this point, no one yet can tell. Little real progress seems to be being made in finding a resolution to the ongoing problem of counteracting the nauseating stench of bird and marine mammal waste buildup emanating from La Jolla Cove. But the effort continues. “Councilmember [Sherri] Lightner’s office continues to work with the community and elected officials at the local and state level to find a solution SEE COVE, Page 8

New boutique invites La Jolla to invent its scent BY KENDRA HARTMANN | VILLAGE NEWS In 1996, John Berglund took his family on a vacation to the Caribbean, touring several islands. An attorney who was working long hours and commuting daily from their home in Hudson, Wis. to St. Paul, Minn., Berglund fell in love with the tropics and the islands’ way of life. He decided then and there that he and his family would return — for good. Fast-forward 10 years, and Berglund had finally achieved his goal. Through a long journey consisting of planning, saving and wading through the intricacies of picking up and mov-

QuickHits Lightner to serve as president pro tem District 1 City Councilwoman Sherri Lightner was unanimously selected by her colleagues to serve as the council’s president pro tem, marking the first time a woman has held the position in San Diego. As part of her responsibilities, Lightner will review the council’s committee structures and duties to ensure they address pertinent current issues. Lightner will also chair the new Rules and Economic Development Committee, which takes on the combined tasks of the former Rules, Open Government and Intergovernmental Relations Committee, as well as the Economic Development and Strategies Committee, which Lightner

The boutique was popular with tourists and locals, who enjoyed the views of the lab where per-

La Jollans honored for hospice work Longtime San Diego Hospice supporters Daniel and Violet McKinney were recently honored with the nonprofit hospice center’s Kaye Woltman Legacy Award at its annual “Evening of Appreciation” award dinner. The La Jolla residents were honored among nearly 200 donors and support-

fumes were mixed. That view, however, often prompted a question: “Can we make our own perfume here?” After fielding the question again and again, Berglund began to think the idea had some merit. He decided to begin offering perfume-mixing classes in the small lab. The boutique and its classes became so popular, visitors began hounding Berglund to open a sister store stateside. Meanwhile, Berglund’s daughter, Rachelle Crumrine, had finished college at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and - Apart from its own signature fragrances, Tijon offers classes for participants to create their own perfume.

City lowers the bill for restaurant owners through relief measure BY MARIKO LAMB | VILLAGE NEWS After a one-year trial period, the San Diego City Council unanimously approved legislation to permanently eliminate costly live entertainment permits for non-nightclub or late-night barstyle restaurants. The “Restaurant Relief” ordinance, initially proposed by District 2 City Councilman Kevin Faulconer last year, underwent a one-year trial starting in November 2011 to gauge the success of the program for restaurant owners and the community at large, including police officers who would otherwise need to be assigned for law enforcement in heavy live-entertainment areas around nightclubs and late-night bars. “The police department and restaurant owners agreed that ‘Restaurant

Relief’ has been successful and recommended it become permanent. This ordinance will continue to save businesses money and let the police department focus on important public safety needs,” said Faulconer. “I’m very proud the City Council approved my proposal to keep City Hall out of the kitchen and let restaurants serve and entertain their customers.” Entertainment permits to feature amplified music, even as simple as the occasional acoustic guitarist, can range from $1,500 to $4,000 per year without the relief program — a burdensome cost for some local restaurateurs trying to draw customers, said Faulconer. “In today’s slow economy, restaurateurs continuously search for ways to SEE RELIEF, Page 8

Ambitious Bishop’s senior and entrepreneur markets a few of her favorite things to La Jolla BY MARIKO LAMB | VILLAGE NEWS Tucked away inside a sunny courtyard on Girard Avenue is a hidden gem filled with a treasure trove of beautifully handcrafted scarves, hand-stitched, vintage-style clothing and a sparkling lineup of artfully crafted jewelry, headbands and pet accessories. Our Favorite Things, which opened in June, arose from the talents of artisans within La Jolla’s very own community, including the shop’s 17-yearold owner Emily Nguyen, a senior at The Bishop’s School. After the young entrepreneur met an outpouring of support for her handcrafted scarves, bracelets, headbands and doggie bandanas at La Jolla’s weekly farmers market, she fig-

ured she would take the leap and try her hand at business ownership. “The farmers market went well, so I thought maybe I could try to get a storefront and see how that goes,” she said. “And at the farmers market, I met a lot of local artisans and vendors too, so I support a lot of their stuff here. I try to carry handmade things to make it unique and support the locals.” Nguyen attributes her needlework talents to her grandmother, Thu Dang, who she says is the true master at her craft. “Ever since I was little, I would watch her. She’s a master at sewing. She can sew anything,” Nguyen said. “I remember when I was little, we

CONTINUED FROM Page 1 was working her way up the corporate ladder in the endurance sports industry. After two years imploring his daughter to help open a U.S.-based store, Crumrine finally caved, and Tijon La Jolla was born Dec. 1. The La Jolla location, at 7853 Herschel Ave., was designed with the mixing classes in mind. While the store in St. Martin had a small laboratory (which has recently been upgraded and expanded) limiting the number of class participants to just a few, the La Jolla store can accept as many as 15 students in a class. The store offers two classes — a Mix & Match class or Perfume 101. For $59 ($79 Fridays through Sundays), the Mix & Match class, which lasts up to 90 minutes, is a quicker introduction to the world of mixing perfume. Participants are allowed to choose from 12 premixed base oils, and can add up to three different oils from the more than 300 Tijon offers in its “perfume organ” — a wall of bottled oils with everything from amber to ylang-

ylang. At $119 ($129 on weekends), The Perfume 101 class, meanwhile, offers a more extensive overview of perfume making, including a history of the craft and using our sense of smell, while allowing participants unlimited use of the oils to craft their personal fragrance. Students in both classes go home with a bottle of their own creation, as well as gifts and educational materials. At the end of each class, participants register their perfume in the store’s database, and when they run out, they can reorder for $39. For those who want to leave the mixing up to the experts, the store also offers 18 signature fragrances for both men and women. As for the shift in her career trajectory that Crumrine — now president of Tijon USA — can thank her father for, she said it has been a welcome change. “I get to work with people who are all having a good time,” she said. “They come in happy, and thus far, they’ve all left happy.” And has Berglund found what he was looking for when he embarked on his decade-long attempt to change his life and leave the corporate chaos behind? “I would certainly do it all over again,” he said. “It was tougher and more costly than we anticipated, but it’s going really well and we love it. I enjoyed myself before [as an attorney] but I’m enjoying myself more now. It’s like night and day. And I’ve always wanted to live in a place where people go for vacation.” For more information about Tijon’s products or classes, visit or call (619) 821-8219.



Oakley brings the future of eyewear to UTC BY KENDRA HARTMANN | VILLAGE NEWS Customers who step into Westfield UTC’s new Oakley store are stepping into the future — and the future seems remarkably similar to a James Bond movie. More of an experience than a store, the concept shop offers everything from a station designed to help you build your own custom eyewear to a chance to check out the latest cutting-edge snow goggle technology. Adding to UTC’s remarkable revitalization, the store brings a touch of sci-fi to the shopping center. Apart from the usual high-end apparel and eyewear offered at many Oakley outlets — including sports eyewear designed to enhance most any athletic endeavor — UTC’s location allows customers to choose nearly every aspect of their glasses, and they can even test their effectiveness against the elements in an environmental chamber. And for those who might be wary of what the price tag gets them, the store demonstrates just how strong Oakley lenses are with its impact test display. Three sets of lenses show that they don’t crack under various forms of pressure — the pressure, for example, of a metal spike dropped from a height of more than 4 feet or quarter-inch steel shot traveling at 102 miles per hour. Even a 12-gauge shotgun shot at pointblank range couldn’t manage to mangle the lenses. Most impressive, however, is the futuristic product known as the AirWave snow goggle (this is where visions of 007 come to life before a customer’s eyes). The AirWave — the

Mathis attacker gets 93 years in prison for U.C. home invasion BY NEAL PUTNAM | VILLAGE NEWS The career criminal who assaulted former District 1 City Councilman Harry Mathis in a home-invasion robbery at his University City home was sentenced Dec. 12 to 93 years to life in prison. Mathis, the 79-year-old chairman of the Metropolitan Transit System board, spoke about the Jan. 11 ordeal that he and wife Mary endured when they were held against their will and their house set on fire by Harvey Henry Duson, 46. Consecutive sentences were imposed by San Diego Superior Court Judge Eugenia Eyherabide, and she fined Duson

more than $10,000. She ordered him to pay $8,000 to a Sprint store in Point Loma, which was robbed by Duson at gunpoint on Nov. 9, 2011. “This is why the legislature made the three strike law,” said Eyherabide. Mathis told the judge this was “a life changing event,” and he and his wife suffered out-of-pocket losses of $10,000. But Mathis said they would not seek restitution because “it’s enough to be alive.” Mathis was bludgeoned in the face by Duson and another robber who has never been identified. Mathis attempted to shoot Duson in the garage in self-

defense when he was first attacked, but he missed and Duson gained control of the gun, for which Mathis had a permit. Duson pistol-whipped Mathis. “You seemed to have a charmed life,” said Mathis to Duson, referring to his missed shot at Duson, as well as Duson’s injuries in a serious car accident while evading police in Arizona, after which Duson was hospitalized. Mathis said it was “no accident” that Duson’s life was spared twice, saying “a higher power led you here.” He urged Duson to tell authorities who the other robber is. “I believe there is good in him because

CIVICreport: La Jolla Shores Assoc. BY DAVE SCHWAB | VILLAGE NEWS Divers surfaced at La Jolla Shores Association’s (LJSA) December meeting demanding — and receiving — representation on a committee being formed by the city advisory group, which is seeking rules and regulations to rein in the commercialization of La Jolla Shores beach and Kellogg Park. The diving community, which uses La Jolla Shores as its training ground following classroom and pool instruction, has expressed concern that LJSA efforts to check beach commercialization might ultimately end up in a city-sponsored request-for-proposal (RFP) process for divers, which they fear would favor corporate operators over independents and thin out the number of operators. That scenario, they claim, has played out pre-

viously in the Shores with surf camps and kayak businesses. Noting the beach is expensive to maintain and the city doesn’t have sufficient funding to do it, LJSA’s board maintains that user groups, like divers, ought to contribute financially to the upkeep of the park and beaches. What is the purpose of this committee? What is the end result of the permitting? Those two questions were leveled by wary divers skeptical of the intent of the association in seeking to curb their use of La Jolla Shores beach and Kellogg Park. “I don’t exchange money down at La Jolla Shores,” said diver Alan Blake, noting the beach is public. “You also don’t pay for park maintenance,” replied LJSA chair Audrey Keane. “It costs millions of dollars to staff that beach and clean it up.”

And though the screen is small enough to fit inside the goggles without obstructing full-forward or peripheral views, its prism technology works so that the viewer reads every stat with the same clarity as if it were a 14-inch screen viewed from a distance of 5 feet. All of the features, meanwhile, can be controlled with a remote control whose dials are made to be handled without the need to remove bulky gloves. In its steady march toward the future, however, Oakley hasn’t forgotten the past. A veritable museum of the brand’s past designs lines the walls of the store, taking the customer on a journey through the company’s history (don’t miss the “Medusa,” an intimidating-looking helmet/eyewear that looks to be straight out of a science-fiction movie and can fetch up to $4,000 on eBay). Oakley has long had a reputation for innovation. In the relics

Blake answered that diving instructors pay business taxes and licensing fees to the city. “So do the kayakers and the surf camps,” said Keane. Board members were sympathetic to divers’ concerns, however. “The last thing we want to see happen is to have an RFP for scuba divers,” said board member Mary Coakley Munk. Keane maintained that the primary goal at the meeting was to set up a committee to address the situation, in order to keep control of how the area is managed under the auspices of the local group, instead of handing it over to someone from the city. “If we don’t do something, somebody else is going to step in and do it for us,” said board member Janie Emerson. Divers asked for a more precise definition of commercial activity.


of eyewear past, customers can see the inventions that, in their time, were as impressive as the AirWave. From the ultra-lightweight all-metal titanium alloy frames to the “Over the Top” — a sunglass whose frame literally sits over the top of the wearer’s head and has been popular with Olympic athletes — the company has prided itself on raising the bar for the eyewear industry.

would sew PJs and stuff together, so I’ve been doing this for a while.” In fact, all the members of the Nguyen household pitch in their talents for the family venture. Nguyen’s younger sister, Megan, helps create handicrafts and jewelry, while dad Tan helped file the legal documentation to launch the business and mom Elizabeth Dang mans the store when Nguyen is in school. “My family is very supportive,” she said. “It’s hard. I have to get here as soon as I can. It’s convenient because I have a free period at the end of the day, so I just come right out and work here. I often do my homework at the store.” Although time management is certainly a challenge for the full-time high

he could have shot me,” said Mathis, adding that he and his wife would pray for Duson. Mathis said the jewelry losses including the wedding rings of his mother and grandmother. Duson said nothing in court. He pleaded guilty to all charges on Oct. 22 without a plea agreement with prosecutors. Sheriff’s deputy Peter Carrillo, who shot Duson in 1993 following a robbery of a Pizza Hut restaurant in Lemon Grove, asked the judge to impose the maximum term. Carrillo said he shot Duson after Duson pointed a gun at him while fleeing the restaurant in a Pizza

Hut uniform. “I’m angry this man was released into society to harm people again,” said Carrillo. “I’m asking you to protect society from this career criminal.” Duson was convicted of numerous robbery charges following the 1993 robbery and was sentenced to 32 years in prison. Most of the 93-year sentence concerned the Mathis home invasion, but Duson did get a 35-year term for robbing the Sprint store at gunpoint and tying up two employees. He received credits for already spending 346 days in jail.

“Commercial activity is when you’re making money in the park,” said Coakley Munk. “It’s a safety issue.” Coakley Munk bridged the gap, saying the group has “been able to work with divers in the past. We can all work together to figure out what a good answer is.” One possible solution, suggested a member of the diving community, was to issue wrist bands to scuba users and operators who pay a reasonable fee for park and beach use that would go into a fund specifically to maintain the beach and Kellogg Park. Diver Rod Watkins, a critic of the city’s RFP process for kayaks and surf camps, cautioned that care should be taken to ensure that any fees charged to divers for park and beach use go to the Shores park and beach, and not the city’s general fund. Blake said scuba operators take great care in keeping Kellogg Park clean, and that the beach activity also benefits local

merchants by bringing them business, especially during the busy summer months. At the end of the hour-long discussion, the LJSA board voted 9-to-1 — with Emerson opposed and Keane abstaining — to create a seven-member La Jolla Shores Commercial Use Policy Committee. On the new committee will be three LJSA board members, three diving representatives chosen from the dive community and one representative from the La Jolla Shores Merchants Association, whose goal will be to “develop consistent, fair policy and permit procedures for all unregulated commercial activities at La Jolla Shores.” “Let’s not make up problems that don’t exist,” said Keane about the new committee. “Let’s solve problems that do.”

school student and business owner, taking care of the legalities of owning a business was even more difficult, she said. “That was really hard because I’m not 18 yet and don’t have a bachelor’s degree,” she said. “The pre-planning process took a few months — maybe six months — to get all of the stuff together while I was also going to school. That was the hardest part.” One of the easiest and most rewarding aspects of business ownership, however, is giving back to those less fortunate through partnerships with nonprofit organizations and charities in the community, she said. “Some friends of mine started a nonprofit organization this year, so I’m selling some of their bracelets, and the profits from those bracelets go back to different social ventures in the countries the products came from,” she said.

Additionally, a portion of profits from some of the doggie bandana and pet accessory sales go to the Humane Society, and another partnership with fellow farmer market artisan, Tami Shreves, owner of Vintage ’n’ Virtue, assists in recovery efforts at a home for women and children. “This holiday, I’m going to bring over some scarves and headbands to give as gifts there,” she said. “It’s something cool I can do since I own a business and I make these things. I should do something to give back.” Our Favorite Things is located at 7514 Girard Ave. Ste. 4.

taken on this project to try and raise funds,” said Ahearn. “Some very basic, cosmetic things need to be done — bathroom repair, changing out the flooring, etc. I’m here to honor the 100 cops and detectives in Northern Division. This project is about them.” Ahearn called the conditions in the office “deplorable” and “disgusting,” saying the sink in one restroom fell off the wall and cracked, after which it was reattached with Bondo. “For us to come and ask you for help is a complete paradigm shift for us,” he said. The remodel of the office will break ground in January, Ahearn said, calling this round of pleas for funds the “last and final push.” “We can’t justify having this money sitting in an account when cops over there are in those ugly conditions,” he said. “Help us out. I’ll take nickels and dimes.” LJVMA president Phil Coller said the group would post a notice about the opportunity for donations in the new La Jolla Information Center. “We’d be happy to see the police

Benches with named plaques going for $35,000 is one way she hopes the remaining funds can raised. Board members suggested plaques might be easier to sell if they could include more than just one name, and Minick said Neri suggested donor names could also be inscribed on cobblestones on the path lining the boulevard. The next LJVMA meeting will be Jan. 9 at 8:30 a.m.

CIVICreport: La Jolla Town Council, Dec. 13 BY MARIKO LAMB | VILLAGE NEWS The 55th annual Christmas Parade and Holiday Festival saw a record number of participants this year with around 250,000 in attendance, 3,000 people marching in the parade, more than 100 parade entries, 80 horses, two stagecoaches, and fire engines, antique trac-

tors, lifeboats and more, announced parade chairwoman Ann Kerr Bache. Despite the record-breaking numbers, there were no safety incidents and the streets were clean within hours of the event, she said. The holiday festival following the parade was also a huge success with the new educational, arts and crafts element that drew children of all ages. “At any given time, we had probably 300 kids here learning about surfing, dogs, the Wells Fargo stagecoach, the Birch Aquarium,” she said. “The kids got the entire spectrum of education, as well as having fun.” Kerr Bache also thanked “Rob’s Riders” — former LJTC trustee Rob Hildt and his band of volunteers — who distribute fliers warning cars before the parade they will be towed. La Jolla Village Lodge owners Egon Kafka and Maureen Murphy also helped notify drivers about the impending parade. No cars on the main parade route were towed. “The parade couldn’t happen without all these people,” said Kerr Bache. • The SDPD Northern Division substation renovation in Pacific Beach will begin in January, announced trustee Nancy Gardner. Sherwin Williams is donating paint for the project, Wurts Carpet is supplying flooring at cost, and numerous other volunteers, including Dewhurst & Associates, have committed their time for labor on the project. Critical funding for HVAC and electrical system is still needed. “We have a lot of people who are volunteering time,” she said. “Moneywise, we have about $17,000, but I need another $12,000 at least for the HVAC and the electrical to make all of that happen.” Checks made payable to the San Diego Police Officer’s Association are tax deductible. For more information about the project or to donate, contact Nancy Gardner at or (858) 456-3000. • The LJTC’s much-anticipated “Dancing with La Jolla Stars” will take place Sept. 21 at the La Jolla Financial Building’s outdoor patio on Prospect Street. The event will feature a silent auction,

live entertainment and catered food. “There is a groundswell of support from the community. Every time I mention it, it’s thrilling because people want to be involved in it,” said Gardner. “It’s going to be a big deal and you’ll be hearing about it a lot between now and then.” The event committee has been working to get some big names in the community to participate as dancers for the show, including sports figures, politicians and public safety personnel. Organizers hope to raise about $400,000 from the event, all of which will go back to the community through Town Council projects. Organizers invite anyone who wishes to get involved on the committee to join them at their next meeting at Hennessey’s on Jan. 7 at 5 p.m. • The Coastal Access & Parking Board is working on attaining its 501(c)3, announced Gardner. In the meantime, the La Jolla Village Merchants Association has agreed to open an account to sponsor the board’s status. • Newly elected trustee Ramin Porteymour agreed to fund the “Seasons Greeting” sign at the entrance to the Village. • The community’s ever-popular rock band, NeverReady, will perform at the La Jolla Community Center on Dec. 20 at 7 p.m. to raise money for the community center, as well as for the band to create a music video. City and state news • The County Board of Supervisors also acts as the board for the area’s Air Pollution Control District (APCD), announced Supervisor Ron Roberts’ representative Sterling McHale. “We’ve been testing our cleanliness for the last 55 years, and we are currently at the cleanest levels than we’ve ever been before, and we have finally come into attainment with what regulations are expected by the federal government,” he said. “As part of that, APCD has voted to send that new designation application out to CARB [California Air Resources Board] on the state level. They have approved it and now it will move to the federal EPA [Environmental Protection Agency] to get our re-designation.”

CONTINUED FROM Page 1 to the odor problem at La Jolla Cove,” Jennifer Davies, the communications director Lightner’s District 1 office. “The issue is the result of the bird waste accumulating on the bluff overlooking the Cove, which can cause an overpowering smell.” Davies’ email said Lightner’s office is working with all involved parties to find both short- and long-term solutions. “All the stakeholders — including the mayor’s office, city staff, the Regional Water Quality Board (RWQCB), the Coastal Commission and state representatives — are cooperating to find a solution that is both environmentally friendly and that requires the fewest number of permits and can be achieved as quickly as possible,” Davies wrote. “Councilmember Lightner remains convinced there is a common sense, cost-effective way to tackle the issue that is mindful of the environmental significance of the area, as well as its importance to the local tourism economy.” But local health and environmental officials, like Dave Roberts, executive director of the RWQCB, an agency charged with developing and enforcing water-quality objectives, continues to talk about the problems involved in finding an effective — and safe — way of removing the Cove stench. Roberts insists much more needs to be done by way of testing and documentation to prove any product used to cleanse the Cove will have absolutely no adverse environmental impacts. “In terms of discussing what the options are, we’re always open,” he said. “But we really have to know what the product [used] is, and what it does. Is it biodegradable? Will it break down in the environment or persist?” Noting the Cove coastal area is heavily used by the public and also contains an area of special biological significance (encompassing the underwater park’s 6,000 protected acres of ocean bottom and tidelands)

We look forward to finding more ways to help small businesses by cutting red tape wherever we can.” Restaurants exempt from entertainment permits include only those that are closed between 11 p.m. and 8 a.m., do not charge admission or promote customer dancing and do not require a drink minimum.

means the “litmus test” applied for any product sprayed there to eliminate odor will be that much more difficult to pass, Roberts said. “The state Water Quality Control Board says there should be no [harmful] discharge whatsoever into the ocean,” he said. “Also, if you’re spraying the soft crumbly sandstone rocks, you may be causing an erosion problem on those cliffs. We need to be honest. If we’re going to authorize a discharge, that has to be based on sound findings of fact and science.” A year or more ago, Carlos Sebastian of The SolRac Wellness Company in North Hollywood stepped forward in offering his odor-elimination product, called Preferred Water Alternative, as an answer to the Cove odor problem. A non-toxic, biomass agent, Sebastian insists the odor extinguisher has been used successfully for years in diverse venues from dairy farms to zoos. “It’s not a chemical,” he said of his product. “It’s derived from pomegranate and chia seeds, creating the perfect environment for eliminating odiferous smell.” “I’ve been using this product for 40 years now and we’ve had no fails — and no health issues, no complaints,” Sebastian said, adding the agent actu-

Fashion and philanthropy come together in San Diego

UTC’s Westfield Mall celebrated the unveiling of its resort-inspired, $180 million makeover in style on Nov. 15, with celebrities, fashion and philanthropy all coming together for a starstudded evening. From the shopping center’s Palm Plaza, Guiliana Rancic — co-hose of “E! News” — emceed the event before a fashion show highlighted stores from Ann Taylor to Nordstrom, with models strutting a catwalk that ran around the plaza’s gorgeous fountain, showing off eye-popping colors like cobalt blue, lemon yellow and tangerine. Holiday fashions — with shiny styles and sequin trends — put the crowd in the festive spirit, while men’s fashions showed preppie and conservative trends.

Just before breaking for the holidays, the students at the San Diego French-American School got a special treat. On Dec. 12 and 13, they gathered in the school’s auditorium for a chance to see a very European tradition: the French circus. Slightly different from what many Americans think of when they hear the word “circus” (there were no animals, trapeze or death-defying feats), the Tour de Cirque consists of just two performers: husband-andwife team Marion Achard and Farid Abed. The small cast and simple sets didn’t hinder the performance. For nearly an hour, Achard and Abed kept the rapt attention of the students with their intricate juggling, tricks and slights of hand. Just when it seemed they couldn’t add another ball or bowling pin to a juggling routine, three more were thrown in. Though the performance, set to music, didn’t contain any dialogue, the story was perfectly told through the actors’ movements and expression. Achard and Abed brought their show to the United States on a sixmonth journey of North America by camping car. Traveling with their three young children, they started in eastern Canada, making their way west then south through California. From San Diego, they will eventually travel down through Mexico and up the Eastern Seaboard before they depart back to their native France. The pair completed a similar tour

of West Africa in 2009, performing their show, “Derrière la Porte” (“Behind the Door”), 33 times in eight countries. Wishing to experience another part of the world — and bring their art to an entirely different audience — they embarked on the North American tour in September. Utilizing the built-in network of French international schools that dot countries the world over, the performers were able to lock in shows all over the continent. They have kept an online travel journal of their trajectory, allowing fans to watch their progress as they “manger, boire, dormir … et rouler” (“eat, drink, sleep … and drive”) through three countries as a family. Their children, meanwhile, seem happy to be along for the ride. While their parents are performing in France, Achard said, they stay home and attend school. While they’re traveling for several months at a time, however, they come along and stay up to date with school through the Internet and France’s National Center for Distance Education. “They’re happy to be with their parents,” Achard said, though they sometimes miss the camaraderie of school. When they’re back home and attending school every day, however, they often ask when the next tour will be. For more information about Tour de Cirque, visit To follow the performers’ journey through North America and to learn about the show “Derrière la Porte,” visit (sites in French but can be translated into English).




Starry, starry nights

with Vincent Andrunas You don’t mess with tradition — especially with traditions that have developed and endured for more than 80 years and have been highly successful. The Candlelight Ball is a fine example. Now in its 83rd year, the annual event benefits medical innovation and lifesaving care at Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla. Always beautifully done, the black tie event is known for its emphasis on quality and elegance and has become a tradition that people look forward to every December. Philanthropist and newspaper heiress Betty Knight Scripps is the ball’s perennial general chairman. During her tenure, the event has raised more than $22

Traditions of the Candlelight Ball million for the hospital. This exceptional financial success is due both to the hospital’s dedicated supporters and to the exceptional personal generosity of Mrs. Scripps. This year alone, the onenight event raised more than $2 million. Arriving at the Grand Del Mar Resort, the 420 formally attired guests encountered the exquisite sights and scents of Kathy Wright’s floral designs (fortunately, by that hour the bees had all retired to their hives). Her stunning work has beautified this event for a number of years. She used a wide variety of blooms and foliage, including several varieties of roses and orchids, peonies, tulips and hydrangeas. (They last much more than just a night, so they were thoughtfully donated to The Forget Me Not Foundation the next day, and taken to hospitals, nursing homes and long-term care centers where they brightened many lives.) A red carpet led to the reception, where partygoers were greeted with

champagne and cocktails. Later, they headed to the Grand Ballroom, where the program began with the presentation of the colors by the Marine Squadron 166 Tilt-Rotor color guard, followed by the National Anthem. Chris Van Gorder (Scripps Health president and CEO for 13 years) spoke, noting that all were gathered “to celebrate the excellence and outstanding care of our doctors, our staff and all of the family at Scripps that provide care for our community and our patients.” And then a surprise — it was announced that Betty Knight Scripps was under the weather and would not be joining the gala. Sending her wishes for all the guests to enjoy a happy holiday season, she promised to join them at next year’s 84th annual Candlelight Ball. Guests gave her a big round of applause, and it was revealed that the plaza of Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla has been named in her honor. Special guests Conrad Prebys and Debbie Turner were thanked for mak-

Calling them “the family of Scripps Health,” he said that through their support, they had all “made a decision to move their lives from special to significant.” As a special treat, “The Candlelight Ballroom Dancers” performed their version of “Dancing with the Stars.” The skilled professionals performed a very

entertaining series of varied dance numbers. Dinner featured a lump crab and chive salad, followed by a coriander and pink peppercorn-crusted filet of beef with a rich, dark sauce. Tasty, tender and delicious, this may well have been the best steak ever served at a benefit event. The Bob Hardwick Sound, flown in from New York (another tradition), played for entertainment and dancing, proving its worth once again.

Here are 20 tips for talking to your children about tough financial times: 1. It’s okay to talk to your children about finances. 2. Discuss who makes the financial decision in your home. 3. When discussing the financial situation, make it clear that it’s not their fault. Be empathetic to your child’s feelings. 4. Normalcy - try not to make drastic changes or big changes in their schedule. Try to keep everything as normal as possible with their schedules. This will keep the fear level down. 5. Age does not equal maturity an age/number doesn’t mean a child is mature. The more mature they are, the more they can handle. 6. If a child becomes fearful, overwhelmed, stressed and/or anxious, they can act out. A child can become depressed as well. We now see depression as early as 3 - 4 years old. Children can act out and become angry or guilty like it’s their fault. If you see your child is extremely and/or chronically stressed or showing signs/symptoms of anxiety

and/or depression like irritability, mood swings, sadness, isolation, change in grades, change in the desire to go to school and see friends, participate in activities, change in sleeping and/or eating habits, get outside help and/or tell your school counselor. 7. Reassurance - even if you are worried about the financial future of your family, don’t let it show. Reassure your kids everything will be okay. Watch how you express your fear both NON-VERBALLY & VERBALLY. Kids learn through imitation and role modeling. They absorb like sponges; if they see your worried and stressed, they will feel the same way. Also remember - positive and negative behaviors/attitudes are contagious. If your family is in a bad mood constantly it will rub off on the kids. Happier people handle situations better, they are more realistic and recover from negative situations quicker. The more optimistic and happy the parents are, the easier it will be for the family to remain calm and intact. Kids don’t understand what a recession is, but they can sense fear and stress. 8. Tell the kids what you’re doing to make the situation better: looking for a job, collecting unemployment, the wife or husband took on more hours at work, or you have a good savings. ALWAYS STRESS THAT THIS SITUATION IS TEMPORARY! 9. Basic needs - let the kids know that everything will be okay and nothing much will change. All their basic needs will still be there. There will be food on the table, a house to come home to, a car to pick them up from school, etc. Cont. on page 23
