Scripps icon opens up for another season of full-moon walks BY KENDRA HARTMANN | VILLAGE NEWS Many San Diegans have lived near Scripps Pier their entire lives, visiting the beach in the shadow of the iconic structure but never being given the chance to know what it would be like to set foot on the research station. Fortunately for them, this season marks the start of a special time: the beginning of Birch Aquarium’s guide-led full-moon pier walks. Typically closed to the public and serving as a research platform for scientists at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, the Ellen Browning Scripps Memorial Pier has long been a thing of mystery for visitors and residents. During the summer months, however, the aquarium opens up the pier to small groups of guests for two nights each month, giving the public a chance to explore the 1,090-foot concrete pier and all its scientific splendor. Guests of Birch’s full-moon pier walks will be led by an aquarium naturalist, first around SIO’s campus — which includes a brief historical account of how the school

came to be on prime La Jolla real estate — and then out on to the pier. Not only is the experience extraordinary for its rarity, it’s educational, too. Watch the sun set on La Jolla from the end of the pier — an uncommon sight for those not involved in Scripps research — and then watch a Birch biologist dissect a squid. Providing more than merely a good view of the coastline, the walks lead guests of all ages through the groundbreaking exploration that takes place on the pier, from marine biology to climate-change research. Even children will find something to be fascinated by during the two-hour tour, provided they are sufficiently awed by getting up-close-and-personal with some denizens of the deep (and even the little ones who aren’t will get to make a beaded key chain with a shark’s tooth, so everyone leaves happy).

Adrienne Bledsoe is like a lot of young moms doing the balancing act: wife, mother and professional. She and her husband moved to University City three years ago to raise their children in a safe community, where the schools are good, the parks are close by and the crime rate is low. Five months after she moved into a home she and her husband remodeled, Bledsoe found a business card on her driveway that read Practical Recovery. She learned from the website that two residences on the west side of U.C. served as six-bed rehabilitation facilities, where clients come to stay typically 30 days to detoxify and rehabilitate from drug and alcohol addictions. One of the houses — which is situated next to the Bledsoe family — is leased and the other one is owned by Practical Recovery president and CEO Dr. Tom Horvath. On a quiet evening in June, the University City United Church of Christ opened its sanctuary doors to a noisy crowd of nearly 200 residents for a two-hour informational meeting organized by a group called Protect UC. The steering committee, all volunteers (including Bledsoe), gathered to inform the audience about Practical Recovery. A panel of five addressed the audi-

ence: District 1 City Councilwoman Sherri Lightner; Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher’s chief of staff, Erik Caldwell; state Sen. Christine Kehoe’s representative, Laura Hein; Bledsoe and Francisco Von Borstel, steering committee members and U.C. residents. Several community members expressed concerns about bringing patients with addiction problems into the residential neighborhood. Concerns included safety; a potential increase in traffic; a possible increase in drug- and alcohol-related crimes; and a potential decrease in home values. Bledsoe said she was shattered when she discovered the house next door was an all-male recovery home

LJVN: Where did you get the idea for Second Chance? SS: After about six months of volunteering at St. Vincent de Paul through the Congregation Beth Israel Hunger Project, I got motivated to start talking more in depth with some of the clients. I would ask them why they weren’t working and they would reply that no one would hire them because of their appearance. I didn’t know if that was an excuse or a barrier. I began coaching one individual on what to say to a prospective employer and I helped him improve his image and interview skills. After a few months, he came back to tell me that he got hired. When I asked him how he did it, he responded that he applied what I had taught him. He then spoke to a few others about his experience and afterward attendance on an average Sunday starting increasing. So I decided to scale this thing up and I went to all of the service providers in town and asked them to partner with me. I asked them to send me their most difficult-to-place clients and I would help them find jobs, get off of needing services, reconnect them with their families and living on their own. LJVN: What motivated you to start Second Chance? SS: I saw how the system worked

and realized that it wasn’t working at all. I was frustrated at the fact that so many people were stuck in what I call the “social-service loop.” The same people would keep coming back for services week after week. The providers were paid based on the number of people they served. The more they served, the more they got paid. If they served less, they ran the risk of not getting their funding renewed. I was later told that if my approach proved Courtesy photo to be successful, the service providers would run out of clients and have no one to provide services to. It didn’t make sense to me. There seemed to be incentives to keep people down rather than empower them to get up. LJVN: Why did you decide to leave the nonprofit world? SS: I left because I was at a point where I felt that I couldn’t really take

what I had learned to another level. Funding was getting tough and there were restrictions on the mission and the vision. I felt like we could be affecting more people, but I couldn’t get the agency to move at a pace that to me was effective enough. Unemployment was skyrocketing, the prisons were SEE SILVERMAN, Page 5

NEWS 3 CIVICreport: La Jolla Community Planning Association, July 5 THURSDAY · JULY 12, 2012



Humans vs. seals yields to humans vs. humans The city has proposed the installation and maintenance of a year-round 152-foot rope barrier at a height of four feet with a three-foot opening for ocean access to separate humans and seals at Children’s Pool beach. Lifeguard union representative Sgt. Ed Harris presented LJCPA trustees with an alternative proposal using moveable boulders to create a buffer on the beach, which he dubbed as the “Wild West” due to authorities’ lack of ability to enforce code violations there. “We see things that are unacceptable down there,” he said. “We’ve seen peo-

ple yelling at children and making them cry — tourists, as well as children that live here.” Harris’ plan calls for boulders to divide the beach into a designated seal area and a designated human area. About 70 to 75 percent of the beach would be allotted for seals in the winter months and 25 to 30 percent allotted for human access. The same percentage would be flip-flopped in the summer months. “We need to try to bring both groups that are polarized on both sides of the issue to a more logical middle ground,” he said. “The rope barrier right now emboldens people to take the law into their own hands and harass people down there.”

Some LJCPA trustees and members of the public praised Harris for taking the lead on an alternative solution for shared use at the beach. “I like this alternative because it’s a compromise. Like everything in life you have to find something that works for everyone,” said trustee Cindy Thorsen. “I think this is a wonderful solution … This is about a viable solution to how the beach can be used for the betterment of everyone.” While some called the plan a “refreshing” and “fair” alternative to the problems at the contentious beach, others said the plan is not a practical solution. “The rope can work,” said Dr. Jane Reldan, docent for the La Jolla Friends of

the Seals, urging trustees to support the city’s recommendation for a year-round rope barrier. “The idea of moving boulders is a very strange idea … The issue on the table is not Ed Harris’ suggestion in the 11th hour when the Coastal Commission and the city posted the proposal for the city to have the year-round rope permit application.” She also said moving the boulders would be nearly impossible due to the sheer weight of the rocks and argued that Harris’ plan for dredging portions of the sand each time the boulders are moved to decontaminate the beach would still not reduce bacteria levels to a point that is safe for human activity. “People should really not be on that beach,” she said. “The rope is simple,

Researchers closing in on ocean temps, levels BEYONDlimits JOH N NY MCDONALD A new study at Scripps Institution of Oceanography comparing past and present ocean temperatures reveals the global ocean has been warming for more than a century. Not alarmingly so, however — unless the Arctic ice begins to melt at a faster pace. “The swelling is rising slowly at one inch per decade,” said Scripps physical oceanographer Dean Roemmich. “In 1,000 years, that would be at the one-foot level. But it could accelerate if the ice begins to melt more quickly.” On average, the global increase is

roughly 0.6 degrees Celsius at the surface and 0.1 degrees at depth. This analysis appeared in the journal Nature Climate Change. The research indicates that extra heat trapped by pollution from more than a century’s worth of coal and fossil fuel burning is beginning to reach depths that could impact the survival of sea life. The world’s oceans have been warming for more than 100 years — twice as long as previously believed, new research suggests. “The findings could help scientists better understand the Earth’s record of sea-level rise, which is partly due to the expansion of water that happens as it heats up,” Roemmich said. “Tem-

easy and works. Please support the city’s application and not this nonsensical, unrealistic explanation of moving boulders and dredging sand, which will be so much harder to do.” Trustee Devin Burstein said he was baffled as to why those who are proseparation of humans and seals would advocate for a rope barrier when, in fact, boulders would make for a sturdier physical and psychological boundary between the two. “Ed’s presenting a way that is a good way to separate people from the seals,” he said. “The rope doesn’t do that. The rope is just a rope. Even if the rope is there year round, even if it’s put in with jackhammers, you can just walk under SEE LJCPA, Page 4

During the voyage, scientists among the 200-person crew took 300 ocean-temperature profiles — measurements at several depths in each spot — with pressure-protected thermometers.

The 33rd annual Beaumont Avenue Fourth of July Parade in Bird Rock hit the silver screen this year with a movie theme. Floats depicted films from “Pirates of the Caribbean” to “The Jungle Book” to “The Endless Summer” made their way through the neighborhood. The community turned out in droves in festive attire to watch the event that has been a Bird Rock favorite for decades.

CONTINUED FROM Page 3 it. If you’re opposing Ed’s plan on the basis of wanting to separate the seals and we want a rope to do it, it just strikes me as illogical.” In the end, trustees reaffirmed their opposition to the year-round rope barrier and supported the La Jolla Parks and Beaches action in June to give the community six months to come up with reasonable mitigation alternatives for people and seals to share the beach. The California Coastal Commission hearing on the city’s permit application for a year-round rope barrier to separate humans and seals at the Children’s Pool beach will take place on July 11 at 8:30 a.m. at the Chula Vista City Council Chambers, located at 276 Fourth Ave. For a full explanation of Ed Harris’ proposal, see “Lifeguard union proposes longterm solution to endless Children’s Pool saga” at

To view or not to view LJCPA trustees attempted three motions — all of which failed for lack of a majority — regarding a request to grant a neighborhood development permit to an existing free-standing solid five- to six-foot wall in the public right-of-way at 2974 Caminito Bello. “We’re not asking for anything that is out of character here in La Jolla Shores,” said Brian Longmore, representative for the applicant. Since the project is not in the coastal overlay zone, the property owners are not obligated to provide a public view corridor by reducing the height of the wall to three feet, Longmore said. Furthermore, there is a dedicated open space park, Pottery Canyon Overlook, adjacent to the property line where people can enjoy views.

“Certainly a view isn’t something you’re going to try to look through a house to see when you have 300 open feet and vistas of the ocean right next to your property,” he said. “The city made numerous trips out there and determined there was absolutely no view to gain from the south end because of the way the angle of the house sits. There’s nothing to see if that fence isn’t there.” City officials proposed that the applicant convert the top two feet and corner of the solid wall to glass to allow for more transparent views for passersby. “The city couldn’t unanimously decide whether this was in the view corridor or not. They had given us some leeway to ask this group if we could do away with the glass,” said Longmore. Some trustees were torn between the applicants’ right to privacy and maintaining view corridors if there is, in fact, some view to be had. “The property is on a roadway from which identified public views can be had,” said trustee Phil Merten. “Between the building envelope and the side yard setback, the city typically requires that development be held at no more than three feet in height, whether it be fencing, walls or landscaping.” Trustee Tim Lucas said the glass panels would be an unnecessary expense if no views were to be gained at either side of the house. “I don’t think they should have to somehow open that wall and create a view corridor if you’re not going to see anything,” he said. “I do believe in peoples’ rights to privacy. I don’t think on the north side there was much to gain by putting a glass wall there either, because you have this wonderful open space to the north right next to it that you can view easily.” For the full rundown of the LJCPA’s July 5 meeting, visit

Blind Stokers Club sets sights on a good cause


If you are pressured by “friends” to try drugs, be prepared in advance to say No! If you were driving fast along a smooth freeway, enjoying it, but knowing that a few feet hence you would crash, explode and painfully burn up, would you be foolish enough to chance it? If you were tempted by a delicious looking candy bar but knew there was poison inside, would you be dumb enough to try? When you were younger, you were taught being good got you rewards...being bad got you punished. If you are driving or intend to – forget the drugs! One DUI and you will have had it! With a DUI on your records, you wont get a driverʼs license or a job. These punishments are quick. Visit a rehab center – that should be a real incentive to stay clean. You may not be aware, but some enormous financial ills in our country today are traced back to international drug trafficking. South of the border, many horrendous crimes are commited for drugs – beheadings and assassinations, not only of rival drug dealers, but innocent bystanders as well. It would certainly be a patriotic stand if you refused to participate as a consumer and refused to coperate with them. Young people, donʼt buy drugs for your own good and the good of your close and widespread environment! Say NO drugs and alcohol. instead, find something more rewarding and fun to do with your hard earned money. Buy a bike, a computer, or sports equipment. Instead of wasting your time with drugs, find positive activities- join a church group or YMCA, or sign up for athletic programs at a community center.

Donʼt be a DOPE or a DOPE HEAD! Take the happy smart, get rewards!

This week in La Jolla history... From Linda Pequegnat’s “This Day in San Diego History”

July 15, 1991 Dr. Roger Revelle died at the age of 82. Revelle was an oceanographer and the director of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) from 1951 to 1964. Prior to that, Revelle was a graduate student at SIO in the 1930s, receiving his Ph.D. in oceanography in 1936. Revelle spent World War II in the Navy, where he participated in important naval research projects. In 1946, he was appointed as the Navy’s chief oceanographer in Operation Crossroads, which tested the effects of atomic bombs on naval ships at Bikini Atoll in the Marshall Islands of the South Pacific Ocean. After the war, he returned to Scripps. During his years at Scripps as a student, research associate and director, he initiated and participat-

It was from this that TEDx (the “x” denoting an independently organized event) was born. “It’s kind of TED’s way of bringing the talks more local, and focusing on community,” said Mark Dewey, executive producer of TEDxAFC — America’s Finest City version of the event. “The model is a community TED-like experience, and it can be as small or as big as you want.” TEDxAFC, taking place July 14 at the La Jolla Playhouse, will bring together community leaders, with everyone from Stone Brewing’s Greg Koch to local yoga instructor Katie Brauer to professional storytellers, to entrepreneurs, healers, filmmakers, artists and even a “space architect” presenting their ideas. The theme, Dewey said, is something along the lines of a renaissance. “Our theme last year was ‘Get Your Fix,’ because we felt like San Diego needed help fixing certain things around the community,” he said. “This year, we feel like we’ve gained some momentum, so we’re looking at going forward, trying to see what our rebirth can be, how we can reinvent current ideas.” So what exactly is a TED event? “That’s the hardest question to answer,” Dewey said. “I always just tell people, if you haven’t been to one, go.

Under Revelle’s leadership, SIO became respected worldwide. He was recognized as the nation’s leading expert on global environmental issues and was appointed by President John F. Kennedy in 1961 as scientific advisor to the secretary of the interior. In 1956, the regents of the University of California voted to build a university campus in the San Diego area and Revelle was appointed to head the campus planning committee. He worked hard to promote the La Jolla location for the new university and to recruit distinguished faculty from all over the country. tend to be forward-thinking, creative people who are out there to make change happen. To describe it is very tough.” The events appeal to such a wide range of people, Dewey said, it’s difficult to pin down the target audience. But that’s the attraction. “What’s nice about this platform is that it speaks to anyone from a high school senior to the CEO of a large company,” he said. “The way the ideas are presented is such that they’re detailed enough to understand, but not so much that you get lost in the explanation. It’s funny to look out in the audience — you see high schoolers sitting next to San Diego’s leaders.” With the presentations kept at no more than 18 minutes, speakers, Dewey said, have a daunting challenge. “Trying to summarize their lifetime of experience into 15 minutes is really difficult, and they’ve been working really hard for the last four or five months. They’re aiming to give the best talk of their life,” he said. “Some [critics] think it’s going to be simplified or dumbed down, but I couldn’t disagree more. It’s really a challenge to get their point across and look to future in that amount of time. You almost get more quality out of that than an hour-long keynote address.” The third annual TEDxAFC takes place at La Jolla Playhouse, 2910 La Jolla Village Drive, on Saturday, July 14 from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tickets are going quickly, Dewey said, so advance reservations are a must.

NEWS & VIEWS A history of La Jolla through some of its oldest inhabitants: trees Reflections Reflections

By Carol Olten

Trees have played a significant role in La Jolla’s history, ranging from the more than 2,000 that were planted as a beautification effort to sell lots by pioneer developers in the late 19th century to present-day efforts to replace some of the recently departed eucalyptus by the La Jolla Village Merchants Association. Ironically, the eucalyptus — removed from Girard Avenue as a safety precaution, according to a city arborist — were part of the original plantings from the 1890s. Both Girard and Herschel avenues once were lined with eucalyptus that formed a bower over the streets much like the traditional oaks on old Southern plantations. They were planted along with hundreds of cedars, pines and palms in La Jolla’s early history as attractive greenery for the then-barren landscape. Lack of water led to the death of many of the early La Jolla trees, although some still survive, including the iconic line of palms at Scripps Park


CONTINUED FROM Page 1 and not the home of a potential playmate for her children. She said she feared for her small children, citing the statistic that 90 percent of property crimes are related to drugs. “I hope and pray we won’t be a story on national news,” she said, adding that she and her husband wouldn’t have bought the home had they known about the business next door. “I never feel safe.” Lightner took residents’ concerns into consideration, and encouraged residents to take note of any activity involving the facilities that they felt might be a threat to the community. “I appreciate your frustration,” she said. “Keep a detailed log of any nuisance created by the facility.” Lightner said her office had reviewed the applicable California law regarding residential rehabilitation. She found that, according to state law, a licensed group home serving six or fewer residents must have a permit-use designation in all residential zones in which a single-family home is permitted. No conditional-use permit, variance, or special permit can be required for these small group homes.

near La Jolla Cove, planted through the efforts of Walter Lieber, a pioneer Realtor with great interest in beautification projects. Similar interest in the beautification of La Jolla’s landscape and preserving the memories of those who helped accomplish it has led to the planting of numerous memorial trees. Eleanor B. Parkes, one of the founding members of the La Jolla Historical Society, planted a tree in Scripps Park on Oct. 18, 1936, honoring what would have been Ellen Browning Scripps 100th birthday after her death in 1932 at age 96. Another tree, a New Zealand Christmas tree (metrosideros tomentosa) joined the park landscape around the same time, honoring Kate Sessions’ 82nd birthday. It was planted in the horticulturist’s honor by the La Jolla Garden Club. In 1928, the La Jolla Woman’s Club and the Alliance Francaise celebrated a visit by French ambassador Myron T. Herrick by planting a spruce tree on the club grounds. Much earlier, in May 1916, the woman’s club celebrated its popular Shakespeare Festival that year by planting a Great Northern Oak in honor of the Bard.

Trees have taken on special meanings and purposes to La Jollans through the years. Among the fascinating tree stories are the many tall and graceful star pines planted through the village and along the cliffs in the early years. Legend has it they were aligned to lead persons walking along deserted dirt trails to their points of destination. But perhaps the most fascinating tree story of all concerns a young girl in the 1930s who hoisted herself into a pepper tree on Ivanhoe Avenue, determined to set an all-time record for tree sitting. (This was many years before environmentalists took to sitting in trees as an effort to keep them from being cut down; in the 1930s tree-sitting mania swept the country for a short time as a popular children’s sport.) La Jolla’s Maybelle Pearce, 11, stayed in the pepper tree 10 days as the townspeople brought her sustenance. She did not make the Guinness Book of Records, but her efforts were rewarded with a three-month pass to the Granada movie theater and another pass to the miniature golf course. — Carol Olten is the historian of the La Jolla Historical Society

Caldwell said he was shocked that no notification of the community by the recovery homes was made. Still, he acknowledged that not much could be done, considering the definition of handicapped under the Fair Housing Act includes drug addiction (other than addiction caused by current, illegal use of a controlled substance) and alcoholism. “Federal law prevents the state from doing anything, with [the Fair Housing Act] taking precedence,” he said. “Drug and alcohol addictions are a sickness — a health issue — a protected class that can’t be discriminated against.” One member of the audience asked why there weren’t restrictions for a treatment center like Practical Recovery, wondering why a business with six unrelated tenants was allowed to operate in a residential zone. State law, Lightner and Caldwell pointed out, does not allow a city to pass any law treating licensed residential rehabilitation facilities with six or fewer patients any differently than any other single-family residence. Members of Protect UC’s committee emphasized they were not on a witch hunt, but rather were hoping to ensure the community wouldn’t be opened up to a barrage of similar facilities.

“U.C. has done its part by having two [rehab facilities],” Von Borstel said. The steering committee, he said, wanted to fight the clustering of such homes in close vicinity. Several years ago, according to Lightner’s office, Newport Beach passed the most restrictive residential rehabilitation legislation in the state. The city was sued by rehabilitation home operators, and the litigation is still ongoing. “Cities throughout California are watching this litigation as a test case for how the courts will allow cities to regulate residential rehabilitation homes,” said Lightner representative Erin Demorest. It’s important to note, Demorest added, that the Newport Beach law is still subject to state law and does not place any limitations on licensed homes with six or fewer occupants. Linda Forester, another member of the steering committee, lives down the street from one of the facilities. Her radar went up, she said, when it was first established, and it’s the marketing of such treatment centers she’s concerned about. “[It’s like] ‘Come to Southern California to recover,’” she said. “This is a for-

Hair Color Q: Should you color your hair if your

hair is prematurely gray, or could gray help your business? A: Gray can be a matter of self-esteem. You may not be presenting your most professional, attractive self. By the way, the old addage gray men are distinguished, women are old doesn’t hold true. Gray is a grooming issue, not a gender issue. A good rule of thumb, is to go one shade lighter than the natural color so it does not look harsh and goes with the skin tone. Low-lighting colors gray hair and leaves some natural hair showing, which makes gray hair less apparent. All white hair can make some women look washed out. Warm, tan, or golden tones can add color to the hair and skin tones. Extensions Volume and length can be added with extensions.

Bird Rock gallery

La Jolla


emphasizes healing power

of art

BY DAVID L. CODDON | VILLAGE NEWS Maria Parenteau is owner of the Bird Rock Arts Gallery Studio, but in name only. The Brazilian expatriate said her space belongs just as much to the local artists, students, senior citizens and people in need of healing who come and create there. “The gallery is theirs,” she said. Parenteau, an artist herself whose work — much of it depicting her favorite subject, birds — lines the walls of the small but sunny gallery along La Jolla Boulevard, is a firm believer in the restorative power of making art. “Art is a healing process,” she said. “When you do art, you are releasing a scary thought or fear. I had this idea to open the studio to bring people together.” Among the workshops or classes offered at the gallery and bringing people together are those specifically tailored for women. “I have a passion to work with women,” said Parenteau, who, having grown up in Brazil, moved to La Jolla from Massachusetts four years ago. “If you help women, you help the whole family. Women need tending and befriending to relieve stress. The idea is to bring women together to support each other in difficult times.” It was while living in Brazil and teaching art classes that Parenteau discovered women felt comforted by the process of making art. She found the same to be true for the troubled teen-agers with whom she also worked. “Everything I did with them was with the intention of releasing them from pressure and giving them selfesteem and hope,” she said. “When they expressed themselves, the ugliness of their lives faded.” Parenteau describes her space as a “gallery/studio/co-op” at which she welcomes artists working in all media (including sculpture and jewelry-making), seniors, cancer patients and any-

one looking to relieve stress through a safe, creative outlet. The cancer patients “come here and they relieve their stress,” said Parenteau. “They talk to other people who are hurting. I’m not bringing healing to their bodies, but I’m comforting them.” Local artists pay to rent space to work at Parenteau’s gallery, and students are charged for classes, offered throughout the week from morning through evening. A recent look at the workshop schedule showed classes like “Surfboard Art,” “Junk Into Funk,” “Oil Paint Boot Camp,” “Mixed Media Organic Art” and “Vase Phase.” Almost all of Parenteau’s own paintings hanging inside the gallery are for sale, though one, which she fondly calls her “masterpiece,” is expressly not for sale. The avian theme is apparent. “I use images of birds to represent people in various life situations,” Parenteau said, pointing to different paintings designed to express humanity’s complexity. “I can tell a story” with the bird paintings, she said. Ask for a tour of these vibrant works — no two of which is alike — and Parenteau is happy to oblige. Her own work aside, Parenteau focuses on the primary mission of her gallery: to comfort. “Everybody needs love,” she said. “Everybody needs healing.” Bird Rock Arts Gallery Studio is located at 5785 La Jolla Blvd., Suite B.

with Vincent Andrunas The artist sat before the Steinway for a long moment late Sunday afternoon, letting silence accumulate in the Neurosciences Institute’s acoustically perfect auditorium. He focused intently on Danseuses de Delphes, the Debussy piece he was about to play to begin the opening concert of the Athenaeum Music and Arts Library’s Summer Festival 2012. The performer, noted pianist Gustavo Romero, is a product of the greater San Diego area, and possessed of such talent that he was sent off to study at Julliard while in his pre-teens. Noted for his technical brilliance and interpretive depth, he now maintains residences in Dallas and New York City and performs professionally around the world. Over the last 14 years, Mr. Romero has been preparing a series of concerts featuring the music of one classical composer each year. For 2012, in celebration of Claude Debussy’s 150th birthday and in honor of the 75th anniversary of the passing of George Gershwin, he is presenting piano recitals featuring the music of these great composers on three continents. He’ll be performing in the Athenaeum’s festival every Sunday through July 29, with each concert featuring a different set of Debussy works followed (after an

intermission) by Gershwin tunes. This time, he began with a dozen Debussy preludes (from 1909-1910), and continued with his famed deux arabesques (1888-1891). A Grand Fantasy based on themes from Gershwin’s “Porgy and Bess” concluded the performance. All were beautifully and sensitively played to a hushed but appreciative audience. They burst into applause when each set was finished, ultimately rendering standing ovations before — and after — the encore (Gabriel Fauré’s Pavane). A post-concert dinner is an option for festival performance guests. This one was held on the lovely garden patio of Leanne Hull MacDougall’s comfortable, art-filled La Jolla Shores home. The amiable hostess welcomed every guest, including Mr. Romero and his mother, Leticia. Girard Gourmet catered the affair, beginning with tasty tray-passed hors d’oeuvres. Later, when everyone was seated for dinner, Athenaeum executive director Erika Torri thanked them for their attendance, noting that this was the pianist’s 55th Athenaeum concert performance. He had played for the first Summer Festival in 1999, a highly successful series featuring the music of

Chopin, and continued at successive annual festivals showcasing other great composers. He’ll be back in 2013 for the 15th iteration of this series. Dinner began with a refreshing mango gazpacho, followed by a main course of perfectly prepared salmon. During the reception, guests had admired a number of beautiful latticetopped strawberry rhubarb pies cooling in a window. They were served, with ice cream, for dessert. Mr. Romero had two

slices, declaring it “the best in the world,” and was later rewarded with an entire extra Above: Russell and Eloise Duff, Carol and Larry Gartner pie to take home.

We are targeting clustering — putting too many in close vicinity.” Forester said she plans to carry out that targeting with signatures, and she handed out petitions at the meeting. “Petitions work,” she said. “Who will buy a home next to these facilities? Why aren’t zoning laws protecting the community?” Whatever the conclusion the community comes to, Von Borstel said, it won’t be an easy road to compromise. “It’s going to be a long process,” he said. “It won’t be answered tonight.” CEO Horvath attended the meeting, though in a “non-speaking role.” In a later interview, he addressed some of the residents’ concerns — chiefly, that Practical Recovery had made a definitive decision not to open any more facilities in University City west of Genesee. “It would be entirely legal for any number of homes to move in, provided they met the requirements of the law,” he said. “But we have voluntarily limited ourselves to the two homes already operating. Others could come in, yes — we have no control over that. But from our end, we’re staying at the current size.” Horvath said he was sensitive to residents’ concerns — however valid they may be. Though he admitted he hadn’t made any diligent investigations into the issue of property value, he said he had heard conflicting reports from various


sources — some saying there was no evidence to support the idea that properties have ever decreased in value because of the presence of such a facility, and others who weren’t sure. All of which, he said, simply means a more thorough study is in order. Horvath freely admitted there is likely a strong correlation between drug users and crime — which had nothing to do with his facilities, he said. “I think [Bledsoe] is right to be concerned about drugs and crime, since those who purchase illegal drugs often resort to burglary and theft,” he said. “We looked up crime statistics and found hundreds of crimes in University City, but that wouldn’t be our patients, because they’re in treatment. We haven’t been affiliated with any crime statistic in U.C. It’s a legitimate concern, but it’s not relevant to us.” Horvath said his hope is that, in time, the community would come to embrace Practical Recovery for the work it does. “We hope that our neighbors will come to be proud of us,” he said. “We’re one of the most innovative treatment centers in the country. We provide individualized care, helping people move forward in life with a sense of meaning and purpose. There aren’t many rehabs like this. We treat people who, even though they’re powerless over this one part of their lives, they’re otherwise not powerless people. We tend to see attorneys, business executives, musicians, writers — we see all kinds, but the one thing they have in common is that they want to solve this problem and move forward. We’re very proud of our work, and we

feel our neighbors could be, too.” At the meeting, Bledsoe and Von Borstel encouraged residents to contact Horvath and meet with him to discuss concerns about the facilities. Horvath said he had since met with a few, but he urged more to come forward with questions — like the issue of prior notification, which Hein and Caldwell had questioned. “We have actually been open in University City for five years, but for four years we operated as a sober-living home,” Horvath said. “Frankly, the sober-living home could be considered a somewhat less safe operation, because there’s not as much staff and the residents don’t have the same supervision.

And for all those four years, we weren’t ever affiliated with any crime statistic in U.C., which I think is a significant track record. “I’m probably leaning toward providing prior notification in the future, but only on a case-by-case basis,” he continued. “I feel that it plays into the idea that somehow these homes are a magnet for sexual predators, homicidal maniacs, thieves and burglars, which has no basis in statistics or reasoning. Everyone knows where their local drug houses and alcoholics are, and they just avoid them and laugh about it, and yet somehow we get branded as unsafe. So I’m not supportive of [prior notification] to that extent, but to the extent of wanting

to be a good neighbor, that is a good thing.” Overall, committee members said, they hoped government representatives would work with residents of University City to address their concerns regarding the facilities and the potential for more to crop up in the community. “We just want to protect and preserve the character of this community,” Bledsoe said.
