THE LOOK AT HISTORY ISSUE

Alumni gather to celebrate school’s past BY ASHLEY ARCHIBALD Daily Press Staff Writer

miles north to Malibu to surf the world’s best waves. Born Feb. 3, 1927 in Santa Monica, Gabaldon was part of a small AfricanAmerican community that had been present in the city since the turn of the century. Rather than risk ostracism at some other beaches, many African-Americans in Santa Monica headed to “The Inkwell,” a 200-foot stretch of sand off Santa Monica State Beach where anyone was welcome.

PICO BLVD Nearly 30 people gathered at the Thelma Terry building in Virginia Avenue Park Saturday to celebrate the 80th anniversary of Garfield Elementary School, a pioneering institution that educated Santa Monica’s minority students and was home to its first African-American teacher, Dr. Alfred Quinn. The dread inspired by high school reunions is the stuff of satire and B-movies as people either peacock their accomplishments or try to fade into the wallpaper. Those emotions were notably absent at the Garfield reunion. “That’s me!” crowed Betty Taylor when a class photograph from 1953 popped up on the projecting screen. It’s been many years since Taylor last set foot in Garfield School, a institution of learning that was once where the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District’s main office now stands, but the memories of dancing the cha cha cha in her sixth grade class or borrowing a puzzle or ball from the toy loan at recess remain fresh. So did the prevailing sense that Garfield’s small population of African, Mexican, Russian, Italian and Japanese Americans were effectively family in a time where African-Americans couldn’t get hired at Sears and enjoyed only a portion of the Santa Monica beach called the Inkwell. “It was a close knit community, and that’s what made it so special,” said Carolyne Edwards, Quinn’s niece and the co-founder of the Quinn Research Center, an organization dedicated to preserving the history of Santa Monica’s African-American population and honoring Quinn’s memory. Quinn taught sixth grade at Garfield, and, along with Thelma Terry, the namesake of the building in which Saturday’s brunch was held, ran the summer programs held at the school’s youth activities center. The school founded a number of pro-

HISTORIC DUDE: Nick Gabaldon (far right) rides a wave at Surfrider Beach more than 60 years ago. A new documentary tells the story of how Gabaldon became the first known African-American surfer, and later lost his life while surfing in Malibu.

Gabaldon remembered on film BY ELYENA DE GOGUEL Special to the Daily Press

On June 5, 1951, time stopped for Nick Gabaldon. The first documented AfricanAmerican surfer had attempted to pass underneath the Malibu Pier in high surf. “He surfed into the pier,” recalls surfing legend Ricky Grigg. “And then he disappeared.” More than 60 years after his death that summer day in Malibu, Nick Gabaldon is back, in a new film called “12 Miles North:

The Nick Gabaldon Story.” The stylish halfhour documentary directed by Richard Yelland and funded by Nike premiered in February at Hollywood’s Montalban Theatre. It features cameos from several surfing legends, including local Allen Sarlo, as well as African-American surfers and athletes inspired by Gabaldon’s story. Gabaldon was an accomplished body surfer whose love for the water pushed him into surfing. His quest for respect in the merit-based culture of the surfing community led him to go even further: paddling 12

‘Hunger Games’ battles to $155M opening weekend DAVID GERMAIN AP Movie Writer

LOS ANGELES “The Hunger Games” has filled fan appetites with a $155 million opening weekend that puts it near the top of the domestic record book. The huge haul marks the third-best debut ever in terms of revenue, behind the $169.2 million opening for last year’s “Harry Potter” finale and the $158.4 million opening of 2008’s “The Dark Knight.” “Harry Potter” and “Batman” were wellestablished franchises. “The Hunger Games” set a revenue record for a non-sequel, taking in more than twice what the first “Twilight” movie did with its $69.6 million opening weekend. “This is the birth of a franchise. To launch in this fashion is mindboggling,” said David Spitz, head of distribution at Lionsgate, which now also owns the “Twilight” franchise after its purchase of Summit Entertainment. While it’s already a blockbuster on its North American home turf, “The Hunger Games” had a much slower start overseas. The film took in a modest $59.3 million in 67 markets, including Great Britain, Germany, France, Russia and Australia. The “Harry Potter” finale took in a record $314 million overseas in its debut last summer, and half a dozen other films have opened with more than $200 million outside the United States. Even “John Carter,” a dud domestically, managed to take in more than “The Hunger Games” overseas, launching with $70.6 million in 55 international markets two weekends ago. Still, “The Hunger Games” amassed a worldwide total of $214.3 million in just a few days. Domestically, it also was by far the biggest start for a film opening outside the busy summer and holiday seasons. According to Sunday studio estimates, “The Hunger Games” came in nearly $40 million ahead of the previous March record-holder, 2010’s “Alice in Wonderland” at $116.1 million. “The Hunger Games” slid into the No. 3 spot on the domestic revenue chart ahead of “Spider-Man 3,” which opened with $151.1 million in 2007. Factoring in today’s higher tickets prices, “The Hunger Games” sold

of artificially inflating the cost of electricity, leading to California’s power crisis a decade ago, agreed to pay a $120 million settlement that will fund 10,000 electric car charging stations across the state, Gov. Jerry Brown announced Friday. The money from NRG Energy Inc. will help California try to turn a black mark on its past power management into an attempt at future energy efficiency. “This is a truly creative deal that offers tremendous value for California utility customers,” said Mike Florio, a commissioner with the California Public Utilities Commission, which negotiated the settlement. “In one stroke, it closes out an unfortunate chapter in our history and propels us down the road to a clean transportation future.” Brown also signed an executive order setting goals to have 1.5 million vehicles with no tailpipe emissions on California’s roads by 2025, and aiming for virtually every vehicle on the road to be emission-free by 2050. The $120 million settlement, to be paid over four years, stems from decade-old claims against NRG and Dynegy Inc., which co-owned plants that generated California power at the time. NRG assumed full responsibility in 2006 when it bought Dynegy’s half of the assets, and the settlement resolves the litigation, NRG said in a statement. California officials claimed that during 2000 and 2001, the state overpaid nearly $9 billion to companies that artificially raised prices by withholding energy supplies, driving up rates and causing the notorious rolling blackouts that left power customers sporadically in the dark. Other companies involved in the crisis included Enron Corp., Williams Companies Inc., Duke Energy Corp. and Mirant Corp. Most reached settlements with the state several years ago.

Say no to Keystone XL Editor:

Over the past few months, Americans have learned a lot about the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline — the oil industry’s scheme to pad their profits and expand development in Canada’s pristine northern forests. Recently, President Obama announced that his administration will expedite pipeline permits including the southern leg of Keystone XL, which runs from Oklahoma to the Gulf Coast. The decision is both incredibly frustrating, considering Keystone’s huge threat to wildlife and public health, and confusing — as it comes after months of White House promises to thoroughly review the project before making any decisions. Tar sands pipelines are dirty, dangerous, and inadequately regulated, as proven by catastrophic spills in the Kalamazoo and Yellowstone rivers. Cleanup crews are still struggling to restore those ecosystems. Keystone XL is just the tip of the iceberg and Big Oil has big plans for more tar sands pipelines and more exports. President Obama’s wrong turn on pipeline safety will have big consequences for Americans and does nothing to address gas prices or employment.

AS PREDICTED LAST WEEK, THE CITY

Council donned one of its many costumes to play the roll of Unite Here! Local 11 union negotiator and approve an oversized hotel for the corner of Wilshire Boulevard and Seventh Street in return for wage concessions from the developer. Never mind that the project is out of scale for the neighborhood and an architectural embarrassment, it’s OK because developer Alex Gorby (Maxser and Co., LLC) reluctantly consented to pay some sort of a minimum wage — $12.54 an hour without health benefits, $11.29 an hour with health benefits. By approving Gorby’s development agreement, current zoning requirements are tossed out and the door is open to a big, ugly hotel pretty much the way Gorby wanted it — seven floors and all. Extorting developers into accepting wage standards as a “public benefit” introduces a whole new excuse to approve development agreements — not based on the merits of the projects themselves but on political agendas, in this case minimum wage standards. I can see it now. A raft of approvals for unattractive, traffic-generating developments because developers capitulated on council’s misguided wage demands and promised to hire local high school and college kids. This is social engineering at its worst. City Hall isn’t content just to move lowincome, working-class families here from out of town to occupy the hundreds of units of subsidized public housing it annually creates, it also wants minimal wage guarantees for these folks, too. Talk about a benevolent society. Councilman Kevin McKeown was dismayed that $15 an hour wasn’t supported by his colleagues and called the lower recommendations further institutionalizing the poor. Read on, councilman. Apparently nobody on the dais studied economics in college or they would know that when wages increase, people of limited means and on fixed incomes fall deeper into the abyss of poverty. City Council’s mandates won’t eliminate either the “working poor” or “non-working poor.” Yet, Councilwoman Gleam Davis said that the council “needed to create good paying jobs and eliminate the term ‘working poor’ from our vernacular.” “Good paying?” Eliminate the poor? Amazing. Minimum wage floors hurt those on fixed incomes such as persons on Social Security, pensions, fixed investments or public assistance whose buying power erodes as higher wages inflate the cost of living. Council’s minimum wage demand also works against the poorest and most vulnerable members of society — the unemployed. It actually shuts them out of jobs. A recent immigrant or refugee who can’t speak English, is uneducated and has few marketable skills will lose out every time to the applicant who has these abilities — especially for $12.54 an hour.

Setting minimum wage standards and extracting promises to hire local workers and students is unenforceable and totally meaningless. Gorby will fill top positions with the most qualified no matter where they live. As for the low-paying grunt jobs, when was the last time you saw local high school or college students washing dishes, bussing tables or doing hard labor? It’s also no secret that during the last couple of elections, Mayor Richard Bloom and council members Terry O’Day, Pam O’ Connor, Davis and Bob Holbrook accepted thousands of dollars in campaign donations from Gorby and other developers with projects needing council approval. Labor unions also contributed to the same politicians and McKeown. So, what’s our “public benefit?” Higher costs of living, more traffic, congestion and yet another tourist hotel — and a mediocre one at best?

MORE FARMERS’ MARKET BULL DROPPINGS

The same night City Council was so concerned about minimum wages for the “working poor,” they approved a process requiring Farmers’ Market purveyors to buy a Santa Monica business license in addition to paying stall rent. This added licensing expense, which could amount to hundreds of dollars annually, will be passed on to market customers in higher food prices. After operational changes to the markets that included booting popular, long-standing suppliers were approved by council in May, 2010, the issue of business licensing had been left unresolved. Last Tuesday’s update clarified licensing and also established policies for dealing with violations of market rules such as drug use, drunkenness, fighting or refusing to certify that produce is home-grown. Of course, there’s nothing in the new policies that penalize non-produce suppliers who are repeatedly in violation of Los Angeles County health codes. City Hall market supervisor Laura Avery told me recently that there’s no requirement that vendors show up on cold or rainy days. I don’t know how Avery expects people to patronize the Farmers’ Markets if vendors (who have locked in supplier agreements, by the way) stay home when the weather looks poor. It may be another reason why, a year and a half after the original changes, traffic and business is still off at the Saturday Pico Market. Many former Santa Monica market-goers shop out of town. I now visit the Sunday morning Farmers’ Market in tony Brentwood where purveyors are ready to do business rain or shine and where produce and goods are surprisingly less expensive than at the Pico Market I formerly patronized. So, how do higher food prices at Santa Monica’s Farmers’ Markets help the “working poor?” After all of this, I’m waiting for someone to tell us why we should “Buy Local.” BILL can be reached at mr.bilbau@gmail.com

Saving ‘Chain Reaction’

(BUT WE MAKE IT EASY!!!)

T. HS 14T

Sea threatens American shores, a new federal plan obtained by The Associated Press would hinge on cooperation from neighboring foreign governments. Now that Cuba is the neighbor drilling for oil, cooperation is hard to guarantee. The International Offshore Response Plan draws on lessons from the Deepwater Horizon disaster in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010 and was created to stop offshore oil spills as close to their source as possible, even in foreign waters. The plan dated Jan. 30 has not been released publicly. The AP obtained a copy through a Freedom of Information Act request. After crude oil stained Gulf Coast beaches, state and federal officials are eager to head off even the perception of oil spreading toward the coral reefs, beaches and fishing that generate tens of billions of tourist dollars for Florida alone. The plan comes as Spanish oil company Repsol YPF conducts exploratory drilling in Cuban waters and the Bahamas considers similar development for next year. Complicating any oil spill response in the Florida Straits, though, is the half-century of tension between the U.S. and its communist neighbor 90 miles south of Florida. Under the plan dated Jan. 30, the Coast Guard’s Miami-based 7th District would take the lead in responding to a spill affecting U.S. waters, which includes Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The district’s operations cover 15,000 miles of coastline and share borders with 34 foreign countries and territories. Repsol’s operations in Cuban waters are not subject to U.S. authority, but the company allowed U.S. officials to inspect its rig and review its own oil spill response plan. “We’ve demonstrated already and we continue to demonstrate that we’re a safe, responsible operator doing all in its power to carry out a transparent and safe operation,” Respol spokesman Kristian Rix said Thursday. Rix declined to elaborate on the company’s response plans, but he did say two minor recommendations made by U.S. officials inspecting the rig were immediately put in place. If an oil spill began in Cuban waters,

Cuba would be responsible for any spill cleanup and efforts to prevent damage to the U.S., but the Coast Guard would respond as close as possible. Though a 50-year-old embargo bars most American companies from conducting business with Cuba and limits communication between the two governments, the Coast Guard and private response teams have licenses from the U.S. government to work with Cuba and its partners if a disaster arises. The U.S. and Cuba have joined Mexico, the Bahamas and Jamaica since November in multilateral discussions about how the countries would notify each other about offshore drilling problems, said Capt. John Slaughter, chief of planning, readiness, and response for the 7th District. He said channels do exist for U.S. and Cuban officials to communicate about spills, including the Caribbean Island Oil Pollution Response and Cooperation Plan. That’s a nonbinding agreement, though, so the Coast Guard has begun training crews already monitoring the Cuban coastline for drug and migrant smuggling to keep an eye out for problems on the Repsol rig. William Reilly, co-chairman of the national commission on the Deepwater Horizon spill and head of the EPA during President George H.W. Bush, said the Coast Guard generated goodwill in Cuba by notifying its government of potential risks to the island during the 2010 spill. It would be hard for the Cuban government to keep any spill secret if Repsol and other private companies were responding, Slaughter said. “Even if we assume the darkest of dark and that the Cuban government wouldn’t notify us, we’d hear through industry chatter and talk. If the companies were notified, I’m quite confident we would get a phone call before they fly out their assets,” he said. Funding for a U.S. response to a foreign spill would come from the Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund managed by the Coast Guard. As of Feb. 29, that fund contained $2.4 billion. The plan covers many lessons learned from the 2010 spill, like maintaining a roster of “vessels of opportunity” for hire and making sure the ships that are skimming and burning oil offshore can store or treat oily water for extended periods of time. Other tactics, like laying boom, have been adapted for the strong Gulf Stream current flowing through the Florida Straits.

NICE VIEW: By prohibiting further mining in the Grand Canyon, the U.S. government is effective-

ly protecting more than 1,300 acres from surface disturbance and preventing the diversion and potential pollution of over 300 million gallons of precious fresh water from the region’s aquifers.

Protecting the Grand Canyon Dear EarthTalk I understand that mining was just banned in the Grand Canyon and environs. Why is that an important victory for the environment?

Michael McAllister Reno, Nev.

YES, IN JANUARY 2012 SECRETARY OF

the Interior Ken Salazar announced that the federal government was prohibiting new mining claims for the next two decades across more than a million acres of public lands surrounding Grand Canyon National Park. In the face of increased uranium mining in the area, environmental advocates have been pushing for the prohibition to stave off the industrialization of the iconic wild lands flanking the park, fearing that new roads, mines, exploratory drilling, power lines and truck traffic would compromise the natural experience most visitors seek, let alone directly pollute and alter the region’s fragile ecology. Pre-existing claims can continue to operate in the parcels in question, but they will have only about a tenth of the surface impacts and a third of the water usage of what mining in the area would cause without the ban on new claims. “The Grand Canyon’s watershed is a complex groundwater flow system that extends miles north and south of the National Park’s boundary,” reports the nonprofit Wilderness Society. “If contaminated by uranium mining, those aquifers would be impossible to clean up-a point acknowledged by the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality.” The group adds that the aquifers in question feed the Grand Canyon’s springs and creeks, which provide habitat for up to 500 times more species than adjacent uplands, including threatened, endangered and even endemic species found only in the national park. “By industrializing the Grand Canyon region and risking permanent pollution of its soil and water resources, uranium mining would also threaten the Southwest’s robust

tourism economy-for which Grand Canyon National Park is the primary economic engine,” says the Wilderness Society, adding that the outdoor recreation business in Arizona each year supports 82,000 jobs, generates some $350 million in state tax revenue, and stimulates about $5 billion in retail sales and services. As far as environmentalists are concerned, the Interior Department’s decision couldn’t have come any sooner, with mining companies champing at the bit to open up over 700 new uranium mining sites and exploration projects on the disputed lands. By halting this development, the U.S. government is effectively protecting more than 1,300 acres from surface disturbance and preventing the diversion and potential pollution of over 300 million gallons of precious fresh water from the region’s aquifers. “The Interior Department’s decision on this ban reinforces the role the agency should play in managing our public lands by evaluating the various uses in the region and safeguarding fragile lands from permanent damage,” concludes the Wilderness Society. Of course, the mining and uranium industries in the U.S. are not lying down so easily. In February the National Mining Association, a trade group representing the interests of the U.S. mining industry, filed suit in federal court to try to overturn the prohibition. While the challenge works its way through the legal system, environmentalists can breathe easy as the ban remains in effect. But only time will tell how long they can keep resource extractors at bay in and around our national parks, especially in light of the lucrative revenues that can be made from uranium mining, logging and other destructive practices.

Navajo Nation officials eye Grand Canyon for projects FELICIA FONSECA Associated Press

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. Generations of Navajo families have grazed livestock on a remote but spectacular mesa that overlooks the confluence of the Colorado and Little Colorado rivers. This is the East Rim of the majestic Grand Canyon — the last with no significant development. But ancestral tradition and the tranquility of the landscape could be subject to change if the Navajo government’s plans are realized for a resort and aerial tramway that would ferry tourists from cliff tops to water’s edge. The vast 27,000 square-mile Navajo reservation abuts Grand Canyon National Park, and tribal leaders say they’re losing out on tourist dollars and jobs for their people by leaving the land undeveloped. Navajo President Ben Shelly recently signed a nonbinding agreement that lists the gondola, a restaurant, a half-mile river walk, a resort hotel and spa and RV park among the attractions of a proposed development that he says will bring up to $70 million a year in revenue to the tribe and 2,000 jobs to the impoverished reservation. “We want people from all over the world to visit Navajo land and the Grand Canyon,” Shelly said. “We have many of the world’s wonders in our midst.” True enough, but the National Park Service already is voicing objections to the large-scale development on its eastern flank. Environmental organizations and some Navajos who call the area home also oppose the project. “This is just one more thing that is going to chip away at the solitude of the area, and it’s really not the appropriate type of development for that area,” said Alicyn Gitlin of the Sierra Club. Similar proposals for a tramway that would take tourists from the East Rim to the river have been opposed by the local community of Bodaway-Gap. They oppose the scale and character of the current plan and want more say in what could be built there. The confluence, as locals call it, is a 100mile drive off Interstate 40 from Flagstaff off a rough dirt road. Sagebrush, rolling hills, arroyos, canyons and desert mark the landscape where the Colorado meets the bluegreen waters of the Little Colorado. It’s mostly quiet, save for the occasional helicopter tour over the Grand Canyon or the shouts from river rafters below. The land has remained undeveloped for decades because of a land dispute between the Navajos and the neighboring Hopi tribe, both of which claimed aboriginal ties to it. A construction ban implemented by former U.S. Commissioner of Indian Affairs Robert Bennett imposed a ban on home and land improvements in 1966. It was lifted in 2009, though little development has occurred on the 700,000 acres. The western edge of the Grand Canyon outside the national park boundaries belongs to the Hualapai Tribe, which has a horseshoe-shaped glass bridge that juts out 70 feet over the canyon’s edge and gives tourists a view of the Colorado River 4,000 feet below. Most people visiting the Grand Canyon go to the South Rim within the national park. The North Rim, also within the park, is less developed, but has a seasonal lodge. The memorandum of agreement that Shelly signed with the Confluence Partners, LLC., on Feb. 21 doesn’t state the impacts of

a development on the East Rim. But a member of the negotiating team, Deswood Tome, said the tribal government expects 3 million visitors a year as soon as 2015 and revenue to be between $40 million and $70 million annually — up to a half of the tribe’s budget not including federal funds. No one lives at the overlook to the confluence but about a handful of people live nearby, and other families have said they want to move back since the construction ban ended. There is no water or electricity at the site and putting in the infrastructure would cost at least $60 million alone, which Tome said also could benefit residents. About 27 miles of dirt road would have to be paved to reach the site, and water would have to be piped in from miles away. At full build-out, the project could approach $1 billion, said Lamar Whitmer, of the Confluence Partners, LLC. The tram would run from the East Rim and parallel the Colorado River before coming to a stop at the bottom of the canyon, where a restaurant would be located. A halfmile river walk, also running alongside the Colorado River, would give tourists a view of the confluence but stop short of it. The resort hotel and spa, other hotels, and commercial and retail space would be located on top of the canyon. The proposed attractions could create a jurisdictional dispute, depending on their distance from the Colorado River. The Navajos believe the reservation extends to the high water mark of the Colorado River, while the National Park Service says its boundary is a quarter-mile from the river’s bank along the 61-mile stretch of the Colorado before it meets the Little Colorado. Grand Canyon park officials also want to maintain the wilderness characteristics of the East Rim, which is popular with backcountry hikers and not easily accessible, and make sure endangered species like the humpback chub are protected, said park Superintendent Dave Uberuaga. Environmental groups say the noise and light pollution would be unwelcome. “It’s not Disneyland,” said Lynn Hamilton of the Grand Canyon River Guides, a canyon advocacy and environmental group. “It’s one of the seven natural wonders of the world. To mar that somehow with such commercialism right there, in your face would just seem contrary to what the value of Grand Canyon is.” Environmentalists applauded the Navajo government for throwing out plans for an airport, verbally at least, though it remains in the written agreement. Shelly has vowed to protect sacred sites, and although he initially opposed any development at the confluence, his spokesman says it is one of the premier locations on the reservation to draw tourist dollars. But the tribe still must pursue land and leases from a community that appears largely opposed. This is what Tyrone Tsosie called his backyard as a child. He recalled his grandmother taking him out to the confluence and showing him how to use corn pollen — a staple of Navajo tradition — to pray to the rivers for blessings. Yucca root, white flowers and sage that grow there also are used for traditional and medicinal purposes, he said. “The main thing right now for my generation, we don’t want that kind of change, development out there because we don’t want to lose that scenery and lose all those memories,” said Tsosie, who no longer lives in the area.

New wind tower guidelines aim to lower bird deaths MATTHEW DALY Associated Press

WASHINGTON The Obama administration offered new guidance Friday on where wind farms should be located to reduce the number of bird deaths while promoting increased use of wind power. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said the guidelines, which take effect immediately, provide a scientific basis for developers and government regulators to identify sites with low risk to wildlife while allowing for more wind energy projects on private and public lands. But a bird advocacy group that lobbied for mandatory standards said the new, voluntary guidelines will do little to protect hundreds of thousands of birds killed each year by wind turbines.

Salazar called wind power a key part of the administration’s “all-of-the-above” energy strategy and noted that the guidelines for onshore projects have been endorsed by the American Wind Energy Association and the National Audubon Society, a conservation group. The dual endorsements “speak volumes about our goals: to do everything we can to stand up renewable energy” such as wind power while protecting wildlife and habitat, Salazar said at a news conference Friday. The guidelines call on the wind industry to eliminate from consideration areas that would pose high risks to birds and other wildlife, and to take steps to alleviate problems by restoring nearby habitat and other actions. If developers follow the guidelines, they are unlikely to be prosecuted under federal law in the event of bird deaths, said Dan Ashe, director of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

The American Bird Conservancy, an advocacy group that has pushed for mandatory standards, said voluntary guidelines are largely unenforceable and will do little to protect millions of birds killed or injured by wind turbines. The group “supports wind power when it is ‘bird-smart.’ Unfortunately, voluntary guidelines will result in more lawsuits, more bird deaths and more government subsidies for bad projects,” said Kelly Fuller, the group’s wind campaign coordinator. Exact statistics for the number of birds killed by wind turbines are not available, but a 2008 study by a biologist with the Fish and Wildlife Service estimated that wind farms were killing about 440,000 birds per year in the United States. The number of wind turbines has grown significantly since then, with overall output increasing from about 25,000 megawatts of electricity in 2008 to nearly 47,000 megawatts last year, according to the wind energy association. The wind industry’s goal of providing 20 percent of the nation’s electricity by 2030 could lead to a million bird deaths a year or more, according to the American Bird Conservancy. The Fish and Wildlife Service estimates that up to 1 million birds die annually in oil field pits and at waste facilities, but says millions more are killed by cars, cats and collisions with buildings, power lines and radio towers. John Anderson, director of siting policy for the wind energy group, said wind turbines cause a minute fraction of overall bird deaths — less than 3 out of every 100,000 human-related deaths. Even so, he said the industry has taken significant steps to reduce the number of birds killed, mostly by restoring habitat and locating wind farms in low-risk areas. The new guidelines established by the Fish and Wildlife Service should improve siting practices while protecting wildlife, said Denise Bode, chief executive of the wind energy association. David Yarnold, president & CEO of Audubon, called the guidelines a good compromise that reflects years of consultation with interested groups, including environmental groups. “Conservationists can’t have it both ways: We can’t say we need renewable energy and then say there’s nowhere safe to put the wind farms,” Yarnold said. “By collaborating with conservationists instead of slugging it out, the wind power industry gains vital support to expand and create jobs, and wildlife gets the protection crucial for survival. These federal guidelines are a game-changer and big win for both wildlife and clean energy.”

Pope to Mexico: Have hope, use faith against evil MICHAEL WEISSENSTEIN NICOLE WINFIELD Associated Press

SILAO, Mexico Pope Benedict XVI urged Mexicans to wield their faith against drug violence, poverty and other ills, celebrating Sunday Mass before a sea of hushed worshippers beneath a blazing sun in the highlight of his Mexican visit. Many in the crowd said they were gratified by Benedict’s recognition of their country’s problems and said they felt reinvigorated in what they described as a daily struggle against criminality, corruption and economic hardship. Benedict delivered the message to an estimated 350,000 people in the shadow of the Christ the King monument, one of the most important symbols of Mexican Christianity, which recalls the 1920s Roman Catholic uprising against the anti-clerical laws that forbade public worship services such as the one Benedict celebrated. The pope flew over the monument in a Mexican military helicopter en route to the Mass at Bicentennial Park, where he rode in the popemobile through the enthusiastic crowd. Often seen as austere and reserved, Benedict charmed the cheering crowd by donning a broad-brimmed Mexican sombrero that he wore on his way to the altar at the sundrenched park. “We pray for him to help us, that there be no more violence in the country,” said Lorena Diaz, 50, who owns a jeans factory in Leon. “We pray that he gives us peace.” Before the ceremony, the vast field was filled with noise, as people took pictures with cellphones and passed around food. But as the Mass started, all fell silent, some dropping to their knees in the dirt and gazing at the altar or giant video screens. In his homily, Benedict encouraged Mexicans to purify their hearts to confront the sufferings, difficulties and evils of daily life. It has been a common theme in his first visit to Mexico as pope: On Saturday he urged the young to be messengers of peace in a country that has witnessed the deaths of more than 47,000 people in a drug war that has escalated during a government offensive against cartels. “At this time when so many families are separated or forced to emigrate, when so many are suffering due to poverty, corruption, domestic violence, drug trafficking, the crisis of values and increased crime, we come to Mary in search of consolation, strength and hope,” Benedict said in a prayer at the end of Mass. The reference to Mary is particularly important for Mexicans, who revere the Virgin of Guadalupe as their patron saint, and he urged all of Latin America and the Caribbean to look to her for help. “She is the mother of the true God, who invites us to stay with faith and charity beneath her mantle, so as to overcome in this way all evil and to establish a more just and fraternal society.” Benedict’s reference to immigration resonated in Guanajuato, which is one of the top three Mexican states sending migrant workers north. “People leave for the good of their families,” said Jose Porfirio Garcia Martinez, 56, an indigenous farmworker who came to the Mass with 35 others from Puebla, another area that has many migrants in the U.S. “For us it’s difficult, not seeing them for 10 years, communicating by phone and by Internet.” The archbishop of Leon, Monsignor Jose Martin Rabago, told Benedict that Mexicans needed a message of hope because they have been living in “fear, helplessness and grief ” over the mass killings, kidnappings, extortion and other violence stemming from Mexico’s drug trade. “We know that this dramatic reality has perverse origins which are fed by poverty, lack of opportunities, the corruption, the impunity, the poor administration of justice and the cultural change which leads to the belief that that this life is only worth living if it allows you to accumulate possessions and power quickly regardless of its consequences and costs,” Rabago told the pope. Benedict had wanted to come to Guanajuato because it was one of the parts of Mexico that Pope John Paul II had never visited during his five trips as pope. In addition, Benedict wanted to see and bless the Christ the King statue. With its outstretched arms, the 72-foot (22-meter) bronze monument of Christ “expresses an identity of the Mexican people that contains a whole history in relation to the testimony of faith and those who fought for religious freedom at the time,” said Monsignor Victor Rene

Rodriguez, secretary general of the Mexican bishops conference. After nightfall Sunday, the pope will remotely inaugurate its new lighting system. Guanajuato state was the site of some of the key battles of the Cristero War, so-called because its protagonists said they were fighting for Christ the King. Historians say about 90,000 people died before peace was restored. The region remains Mexico’s most conservatively Catholic. With roads closed, pilgrims walked for miles to the Mass with plastic lawn chairs, water and backpacks. Old women walked with canes. Some Mass-goers wrapped themselves in blankets or beach towel-sized Vatican flags, trekking past vendors selling sun hats, flags, potato chips and bottles of juice.

Hundreds of young priests in white and black cassocks, waiting to pass through the metal detectors, shouted “Christ Lives!” and “Long Live Christ the King!” — the battle cry of the Cristeros. Many Mexicans said they were surprised by the warmth of Benedict, whose image was more reserved and academic than his popular predecessor, John Paul II, who was dubbed “Mexico’s pope.” By Sunday morning, that perception seemed to have changed completely. “Some young people rejected the pope, saying he has an angry face. But now they see him like a grandfather,” said Cristian Roberto Cerda Reynoso, 17, a seminarian from Leon. “I see the youth filled with excitement and enthusiasm.”

GARFIELD FROM PAGE 1 grams meant specifically to respond to the needs of the community it served, which was largely working-class AfricanAmericans that flocked to Santa Monica during the Second World War for the jobs offered at the Douglas Aircraft Company. The African-American population in Santa Monica boomed during the war years, growing by over 200 percent, Edwards told her audience, but the impact of segregation meant that many lived in makeshift houses or converted garages. As a result, children didn’t have access to basic sanitation, which Garfield Elementary tried to solve through a short-lived and controversial shower program. It also implemented meals at the school for hungry students and created the first kindergarten in Santa Monica when it became clear that students were missing class to care for their younger siblings, Edwards said. On Fridays, representatives from Bank of America would come to collect small deposits of 25 and 50 cents for students’ bank accounts to promote saving. Gloria McPherson, one of a handful of Garfield alumni at the event, remembers that program well, and still has the little book she used to track her deposits. “It encouraged us to save,” she said. “Friday was banking day.” Stories like McPherson’s were repeated before an appreciative audience, punctuated by knowing laughs and cheers.

SURFER FROM PAGE 1 “We would go to other beaches, but we weren’t as welcome as we were at the [Inkwell]” Nick’s high school friend Wayne King said in the film. Buzzy Trent, a pioneer of the sport and a lifeguard at Inkwell, noticed Gabaldon’s enthusiasm and talent for body-surfing one day and suggested he try surfing. Soon, Gabaldon grew bored with the waters of Santa Monica. He had heard about Malibu, at the time the nascent epicenter of the sport of surfing. But traveling the 12 miles north could be problematic for an African-American man in those times; it is not known whether he owned a car, or whether he felt unsafe walking or hitch-hiking. Whatever the reason, Gabaldon, a big, towering man, started going to Malibu by the sweat of his own brow. His obvious dedication impressed the Malibu regulars, among them surfing greats Matt Kivlin, Peter Cole, Ricky Grigg, Joe Quigg, Tom Zahn and Micky Munoz. “The ocean doesn’t care if you are white or black, rich or poor,” said photographer, surfer and author Craig Stecyk in the film. “If you can survive and thrive out there, you are respected.” Cole recalled the time Gabaldon told him how he got to Malibu. “I said what? It’s 12 miles, Nick!” Cole said. “What are you doing? How do you have the energy to do anything?” “Well I take it easy, I pace it,” Gabaldon responded. “I don’t race. I just get on the board and start paddling.” Ricky Grigg remembered Gabaldon as having a graceful, easy style on the surf board, while Cole said his personality was similar. He preferred to stay in the background, which may have been by design on a potentially hostile beach. “He was kind of a hero to a lot of us, for

It’s those snapshots that create the tableau of African-American life in Santa Monica that the Edwardses and their archivist, Diane Correa de Rempel, are trying to preserve through their work at the Quinn Research Center. Correa de Rempel first came on with the Quinn Research Center to catalogue the belongings of Alfred and Dottie Quinn. The project expanded rapidly to become an active effort to capture the oral history of AfricanAmericans who had lived and worked in Santa Monica. Very little of Santa Monica’s minority history is recorded outside of the original Spanish land grant, something the research center is working to fix, Correa de Rempel said. “I tell people that and they say, ‘I didn’t even know there were blacks in Santa Monica,’” she said. Saturday’s event was both social and a continuation of the center’s efforts to preserve names and identities in order to reconstruct the fabric of a community long since dispersed by time. At Edwards’ behest, people gathered at tables to write in the names of those not present on photocopies of the group shots and told stories of their days at Garfield while a camera recorded the recitations for posterity. With their help and that of others in the community, the center will be able to tell the story of the positive mark that Santa Monica’s African-American community left on the city, Correa de Rempel said.

what he was and what he represented,” Cole said. “He represented I think something that was all positive.” By 1951, 24-year-old Nick Gabaldon was splitting his time between surfing, lifeguard duties and his studies at Santa Monica City College. On May 31 of that year, Gabaldon submitted a poem to his college’s literary magazine about men losing their lives at sea. Five days later, Gabaldon would tragically join them. June 5 was one of the biggest surf days Malibu had seen in a while and Nick was the first one out on the water. He had warned others he was going to try to “shoot the pier” — ride the wave all the way underneath the pier. One second he was there, on top of a wall of water, and then suddenly he was gone. His friends clutched hands and walked out from the beach to try to find him, but were ordered out by the lifeguard due to the dangerous surf. In between sets, Cole and Trent frantically dove, looking for Gabaldon to no avail. Three days later his body was found floating off shore. His friends ID’ed him, and Gabaldon was taken inland in a body bag. It was the last anyone would hear of him for a long time. For many years, African-American surfers such as Rick Blocker, founder of the Black Surfing Association, believed the story of Nick Gabaldon to be an urban legend. But in 1983, an article featuring Nick brought the story back into the public consciousness. Blocker introduced the story of Gabaldon to Yelland, who directed “12 Miles North.” “It shows that with enough passion, nothing is beyond the individual,” Blocker said at the premier. “Tonight, I surf with Nick.” The entire film can be seen by visiting Nike’s Facebook page and typing in “12 Miles North.” This article originally appeared in the Malibu Times.

CHARGING FROM PAGE 3 Resources Defense Council, called the plan “great news, particularly given where the funds came from.”

BOX OFFICE FROM PAGE 3 fewer tickets over opening weekend than “Spider-Man 3,” though. Fans camped out for the first screenings of “The Hunger Games,” which began just after midnight Friday. Many fans showed up dressed as favorite characters from the story. “That type of behavior puts it on the level of the ‘Star Treks’ and ‘Star Wars,’” Spitz said. “I was so excited to see how everyone was responding to the material and how ecstatic they were to be a part of it.” With a broader fan base than the “Twilight” franchise, “The Hunger Games” pulled in bigger crowds than the top-grossing installment of that series. “The Twilight

“What better way to spend it?” Mui said in a phone interview. “This came from the electricity price shocks, and now we’re using it to help the gasoline price shocks.” Some $100 million of the money from NRG will fund at least 200 public fast-charging stations, and another 10,000 plug-in

units at 1,000 locations in the San Francisco Bay Area, the San Joaquin Valley, the Los Angeles basin and San Diego County, the governor said. “With this agreement, the people of California will gain a charging infrastructure ready to support their current and future

fleet of electric vehicles,” David Crane, CEO of Princeton, N.J.-based NRG, said in a written statement, “and we will be helping the state meet its clean car goals.” The other $20 million will go toward reducing rates for utility customers, Brown said.

Saga: New Moon” leads that franchise with a $142.8 million opening weekend in 2009. Women and girls have made up as much as 80 percent of the audience for the “Twilight” flicks. Though it features a female lead, “The Hunger Games” drew more balanced crowds, with girls and women accounting for 61 percent of audiences, according to distributor Lionsgate. Despite its teen fan base, “The Hunger Games” also did well among older moviegoers. Fans 25 and older made up 56 percent of the crowds. “The Hunger Games” stars Jennifer Lawrence as a teen who is one of 24 youths forced to compete in a televised death match in a post-apocalyptic North American society. The film is based on the first novel in the

best-selling trilogy by Suzanne Collins. Lionsgate plans to release part two, “Catching Fire,” in November 2013, and hopes to do the finale, “Mockingjay,” as a two-part film installment. “The Hunger Games” gave Hollywood a huge lift during a normally quiet time at theaters, with the start of the summer movie season still a month and a half away. Overall domestic revenues totaled $214 million, up 76 percent from the same weekend last year, when “Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules” led with $23.8 million, according to box-office tracker Hollywood.com. Business has soared this year, with domestic receipts now at $2.4 billion, 19 percent ahead of last year’s. Hollywood also has a potentially record-breaking summer lineup coming that includes the superhero tales

“The Avengers,” “The Amazing Spider-Man” and “The Dark Knight Rises.” “With this incredible weekend for ‘The Hunger Games,’ we’re perhaps experiencing what could be called the perfect box-office year,” said Hollywood.com analyst Paul Dergarabedian. “We’re just on a trajectory like I’ve never seen.” The previous No. 1 movie, Sony’s action comedy “21 Jump Street,” dropped to a distant No. 2 but held up well in its second weekend with $21.3 million. That raised its domestic total to $71.1 million. Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Hollywood.com. Where available, latest international numbers are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday.

DOJ could bring hate charge in teen shooting

www.MetroCabCo.com

CURT ANDERSON AP Legal Affairs Writer

MIAMI The U.S. Justice Department could bring a hate crime charge against the shooter in the killing of black Florida teenager Trayvon Martin if there is sufficient evidence the slaying was motivated by racial bias and not simply a fight that spiraled out of control, legal experts and former prosecutors say. So far, only one such clue has surfaced publicly against 28-year-old George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch captain who fatally shot the 17-year-old Martin on Feb. 26 in the central Florida town of Sanford. On one of his 911 calls to police that night, Zimmerman muttered something under his breath that some listeners say sounds like a racial slur. Zimmerman’s father is white, and his mother is Hispanic. “It sounds pretty obvious to me,” said Donald Tibbs, a Drexel University law professor who has closely studied race, civil rights and criminal procedure. “If that was a racial epithet that preceded the attack on Trayvon Martin, we definitely have a hate crime.” Others, however, say the recording is not clear enough to determine what Zimmerman actually said. And many experts say more evidence would be needed that he harbored racial prejudice against black people and went after Martin for that reason alone. There had previously been burglaries in the complex committed by young black males, possibly heightening Zimmerman’s suspicions when he spotted Martin. “They are going to have to show he was specifically targeting this individual based on his race, creed, color, et cetera,” said David S. Weinstein, a former federal prosecutor in Miami. Zimmerman’s parents, in a letter to a local newspaper, insisted their son is not a racist, and several black residents of the neighborhood where Martin was shot have only good things to say about Zimmerman. Zimmerman has not been charged with any crime and is claiming self-defense under Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law, which eliminated a person’s duty to retreat when threatened with serious bodily harm or death. He claims Martin attacked him as he was walking back to his truck, according to police. “He’s not a racist,” attorney Craig Sonner said about his client. Those “Stand Your Ground” laws, in place in about two dozen states, have come under increasing scrutiny. U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., on Sunday sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder asking for a federal investigation into whether killings are going unprosecuted because the laws put too much of a burden on local authorities. Martin’s parents and hundreds of supporters say Zimmerman should have been

immediately arrested and charged with the youth’s killing, but local police say they have little evidence to disprove his self-defense claim. A grand jury will be convened April 10 to consider whether to bring state charges, which could include second-degree murder or manslaughter. After receiving a no-confidence vote from the city commission, Police Chief Bill Lee announced last week he was temporarily stepping aside from his post. The city manager, Norton Bonaparte Jr., said officials want the case to be resolved fairly. Civil rights activist Al Sharpton, who has been appearing at rallies with Martin’s parents to call for an arrest, said the Justice Department should investigate the case as a hate crime. The Justice Department’s civil rights division and the FBI are conducting their own probe in the case, and a federal hate crimes charge could come out of that no matter what state authorities do. The hate crimes law carries a potential life prison sentence when a death is involved. Tibbs said one key is determining whether Martin’s race alone was the reason Zimmerman decided to follow him in his vehicle. Martin, who was from Miami, was staying in the neighborhood with his father and father’s fiancée and was returning from a convenience store with Skittles and a can of iced tea when the confrontation took place. He was not armed. “He was not suspicious. What makes him suspicious in the moment is the fact that he was black. If Trayvon Martin was white, would any of this have happened?” Tibbs said. If Zimmerman were a police officer or a government official, he could be prosecuted by the Justice Department for using his official authority to violate Martin’s civil rights. That was the case made against Los Angeles police officers who had been acquitted in state court of beating Rodney King, which sparked huge riots. Two of the four officers were eventually convicted of federal civil rights violations. But Zimmerman was a volunteer watch captain, and even though he had a permit to carry his Kel Tek 9mm semiautomatic handgun, he didn’t have any official law enforcement or government authority. Another possibility is an investigation of the Sanford Police Department itself, including questions about whether any evidence was destroyed or covered up, or whether there has been a pattern of problems involving black people. City officials insist they did an appropriate and thorough investigation, but if such violations occurred federal prosecutors could bring civil rights conspiracy charges against anyone responsible. Bonaparte did acknowledge last week that the police department has had issues with the city’s AfricanAmerican residents.

NCAA BASKETBALL

KU and UK join Louisville and Ohio St. in Final Four EDDIE PELLS AP National Writer

One game is a grudge match between teams that know each other all too well. The other is a rare rematch between virtual strangers. The Final Four is set. In one game Saturday, Kentucky will play Louisville in an intrastate rivalry that puts Cardinals coach Rick Pitino against the school he once coached, then later alienated by returning to the Bluegrass to lead its archrival. In the other semifinal, it will be Ohio State and Kansas, meeting for only the ninth time in their history but for the second time this season. The Jayhawks won the first game 78-67 in Lawrence, Kan., back on Dec. 10. It was the first time the teams had met since 2000. The winners will play for the national title April 2. Kentucky already has seven national titles but none since 1998, the year after Pitino left. Kansas has three championships, Louisville has two and Ohio State, better known as a football power, won its lone title in 1960 and is making its third trip to the Final Four since 1999. Absent from this year’s ultimate hoops weekend, taking place at the Superdome in New Orleans, are the longshots and little guys who have made March Madness so special over the years. Although there are no Butlers or VCUs, there are plenty of good stories to tell. That list starts with Pitino vs. his old school. It was Pitino who restored Kentucky to its former greatness when he arrived there in 1989 and the Wildcat program was coming off the sting of NCAA violations. Pitino took the program to three Final Fours and won one championship, but left in 1997 to take a second shot at the NBA, where he had previously tried and failed with the New York

Knicks. He didn’t fare much better in four seasons with the Boston Celtics, and when the call back to the college game came, it came from Louisville, located only 70 miles up the road from Lexington and very much in the crosshairs of Kentucky fans. It has been 11 years since his dramatic return, and most of the shock has worn off from what was once deemed an unforgivable betrayal. But there’s nothing like a Final Four meeting to stir up some old memories. “It is in our state. They’re a great program. We’re in two different leagues,” Kentucky coach John Calipari said after the Wildcats beat Baylor 82-70 in the South Regional to advance to the Final Four for the second straight year. “The city of Louisville drives our state. The University of Louisville drives that city. So it’s a very important thing for our state, and it’s important that that school does well.” Maybe just not next Saturday. The teams play every season, and most recently, they were ranked Nos. 3 and 4 in The Associated Press poll when they met on New Year’s Eve. Kentucky won at home 6962. “We think they’re excellent. We think they’re great. I coached there. It’s great. Great tradition,” Pitino said Saturday, after Louisville rallied for a 72-68 win over Florida that put the Cardinals in the Final Four for the second time since the coach arrived. “But we want to be Louisville. We have a different mission. They have a different mission. But we both want to get to a Final Four and win a championship.” Led by a group of freshmen who may or may not return for a second year, Kentucky was established as an early 7.5-point favorite in the game.

■ What Do You Mean, I'm Not Mentally Stable: Ms. Fausat Ogunbayo, 46, filed a federal lawsuit against New York City's Administration for Children's Services because it had taken away her kids (aged 13 and 10 at the time) in 2008 for questions about Ogunbayo's mental stability. The lawsuit, for "recklessly disregard(ing)" her "right to family integrity," asks the city to pay her $900,000,000,000,000 (trillion). [Staten Island Advance, 2-72012] ■ LaDondrell Montgomery, 36, had been sentenced in November in Houston to life in prison for armed robbery despite his vigorous protestations of innocence, and about a week later, in December, he was exonerated in fact. Although he had testified at his trial, he had not mentioned that he had an ironclad alibi -that he had been in jail during the time the robbery was committed. Once jail records were reviewed, Montgomery was freed. The prosecutor hadn't checked the records before trial, and neither had Montgomery's attorney, but then neither had Montgomery ever mentioned it (because, he had told his lawyers, he had been in and out of jail so many times in his life that he just could not remember if he had been locked up at the time of the armed robbery).
