NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY

CHUCK

SHEPARD

In November 2003, when last we left America’s most uninhibited public gay basher, Topeka, Kan., preacher Fred Phelps, he was proposing a statue to celebrate the murder of a gay man. In December 2004, his Westboro Baptist Church issued a press release praising God for the “Tsunami & 2,000 dead Swedes!!!” after he assumed that Swedes were among the vacationers who drowned at resorts in Thailand. Phelps had denounced Sweden for jailing a gay-condemning preacher (Rev. Ake Green, since released). According to Phelps, the Swedish homosexuals who died were “vacationing on their fat expendable incomes without kids to bother with and spend money on.”

TODAY IN HISTORY Today is 94th day of 2005. There are 271 days left in the year. On April 4, 1968, civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., 39, was assassinated in Memphis, Tenn.

Extortionist gets five years for threatening to poison baby food at Ralphs BY RYAN HYATT Daily Press Staff Writer

MID-CITY — A local man has been sentenced to five years in federal prison for putting boric acid and glass shards in baby food products at a Ralphs Grocery store in Santa Monica, then demanding $180,000 to prevent the tampered food from being placed on shelves. David Dickinson, 43, a British

national and resident of Venice, was arrested in May of 2004 after stopping at the Santa Monica Ralphs on Cloverfield Boulevard to retrieve a debit card tied to an account set up for him with the extortion money, authorities said. Dickinson was sentenced Friday in Los Angeles by United States District Judge Dean D. Pregerson. Facing 25 years in prison, Dickinson pleaded guilty in November of 2004 to charges of extortion and tampering with consumer products. At the time of his arrest, Dickinson said he blackmailed Ralphs because he needed money for his 5-month-old son’s college education. Judge Pregerson on Friday said

he found Dickinson’s scheme sophisticated and said he thought the contaminated baby food was used to invoke a greater sense of panic, according court documents. Judge Pregerson said the extortion scheme was a “close cousin to terrorism, threatening to tamper with the food supply.” Court documents show that Dickinson sent four tampered food items to Ralphs’ corporate headquarters on Feb. 25, 2004. The package contained a note which said, “This is a blackmail demand pass to persons able to deal with such matter. Keep out.”

Judge Pregerson on Friday said he found Dickinson’s scheme sophisticated and said he thought the contaminated baby food was used to invoke a greater sense of panic.

Wright trial drags into its third and final week BY RYAN HYATT Daily Press Staff Writer

DOWNTOWN LA — The murder trial of a Santa Monica homeless man continues into a third week as the presiding judge takes great measures in an effort to avoid an appeal. David Thomas Wright, who is

charged with murder for allegedly killing Aviva Labbe in 1998, is representing himself. He waived his right to a jury trial and agreed to allow Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Ruth Ann Kwan to decide his fate. Those circumstances have prompted Judge Kwan to be extra diligent to prevent Wright from

making a successful appeal, sources close to the case said. If found guilty, Wright faces life in prison, said Los Angeles Deputy District Attorney Ellen Aragon, who has presented testimony from seven witnesses since the trial began March 21. Authorities found Labbe, then 20, lying face down in a walkway

on the 200 block of Hill Street, in front of a vacant home. Labbe’s murder had been classified as a “cold case” and remained unsolved for nearly four years until a sampling of Wright’s DNA linked him in 2002 to the murder through the U.S. Department of Justice’s dataSee TRIAL, page 9

Tia Skulski: A woman with status BY LESLIE ANNE JONES Special to the Daily Press

Growing up in the frigidness of Buffalo, NY., a change of scenery was necessary for Tia Skulski and Los Angeles seemed to be the closest option. Fourteen years ago, Skulski, the 38-year-old chairperson of Santa Monica’s Commission on Women, loaded up a U-Haul truck and made her way across the country. During her two and a half years

on the commission, Skulski has overseen a number of projects including the Report on Women and Girls in Santa Monica, which gives a comprehensive look into the status of the city’s female population. But Skulski’s community service isn’t limited to women’s issues. Throughout her life, she’s always tried to reach out to others, especially those less fortunate than herself. “I remember when I was little, and I would throw a dollar bill out

the window because the car that was driving wouldn’t stop ... And in my stubborn nature, I’d roll down the window and throw a dollar bill or two out the window,” she said. Things haven’t changed much. Since moving to LA, single and never married, Skulski keeps herself busy in a myriad of charitable organizations and events. Skulski founded Art Peace, a seven-month project See PROFILES, page 8

COMMUNITY BRIEFS Cleaning up LA with liberty By Daily Press staff

Everyone deserves to live non-toxically, environmentalists say. The Liberty Hill Foundation, based in Santa Monica, recently awarded $269,000 to groups doing grassroots environmental health and justice work in Los Angeles. The Liberty Hill Environmental Justice Fund is dedicated to improving public health in low-income communities that suffer disproportionately from environmental pollution. From 1970 to 1990, the risk of living next to a toxic waste facility increased three-fold for people of color in Los Angeles, according to the foundation. The money awarded went to organizations committed to such tasks as promoting clean fuel mass transit, training tenant leaders to identify and cleanup lead poisoning in apartment buildings, closing a hazardous chrome plating facility located next to an elementary school in South Los Angeles, and more. Only 3 percent of charitable funds go to environmental organizations, and only one-tenth of that goes to environmental justice work. Liberty Hill Foundation has given away more than $2.2 million to environmental justice community organizations in Los Angeles County since 1996.

Elks name citizen of the year By Daily Press staff

Who else do you know that has spent 6,000 hours with the terminally ill? James Lewis was recently named “citizen of the year” by the Santa Monica Elks for his 22 years of volunteering at the Department of Veteran Affairs West Los Angeles Hospital. “Now in their (terminally ill patients) final days upon this Earth, James Lewis is there beside our veterans, to give a sense of value to their lives and to assure them that this country cares and appreciates who they are and what they have sacrificed for us,” said Dannion Brinkely, chairman of the Elks’ board of Compassion in Action. “Jim is a giant of a man in more ways that one.” When he accepted the plaque, Lewis said, “When I meet a new patient, I walk up, extend my hand and say ‘I want to thank you for what you have done for your country and for me.’ Whether they extend a hand, a withered claw, or an empty sleeve, I shake it. I give them a sense of self worth and in return, they give me an even greater sense of self worth.”

Help found for those who’ve lost By Daily Press staff

If you are 55 or older and have lost a loved one, there’s a group for you. Now on Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., there is a bereavement group at the Center for Healthy Aging in Santa Monica. The group is facilitated by a professional grief counselor. There is a sliding scale fee. Pre-registration is required. Call: (310) 576-2550 for more information.

Today the SW backs down and it looks like we’ll be seeing some short period wind swell from a system in the Gulf of Alaska that’s moving southward down the West Coast. This swell will generate waist- to chest high-surf. An onshore flow is expected, and winds from the NW could pick up quite early. Expect wind to be an issue today. OUTLOOK: On Tuesday, the NW wind swell continues with a light sprinkling of SW, giving us a repeat of Monday with possibly a 5 percent to 10 percent increase in the NW energy.

Santa Monica College has offered to pay $8.2 million for the city’s new park at the airport through bond money approved by taxpayers last November. The catch is that SMC wants permission to build a parking garage underneath the park so it can shuttle students from its airport campus to its main campus on Pico Boulevard. No matter what happens, SMC will lose its surface parking lot — where thousands of student park and get shuttled to the main campus — to make way for the new park. It’s up to the City Council to make a decision: Either

allow the underground parking garage and accept SMC’s money, or continue on its own plan and potentially leave students finding other places to park in Santa Monica, which could exacerbate an already serious problem in the minds of many nearby residents. So this week, Q-Line wants to know, “What should the City Council do?” Call (310) 285-8106 before Friday at 5 p.m. and we’ll print your responses in the weekend edition.

OPINION GUEST COMMENTARY

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Cereal mom needs to get a grip Editor: Regarding “Cereal mom is half baked” (SMDP, March 30, page 1). After reading the story about the San Diego mother who is suing the cereal companies for supposed misleading ads regarding their cereal, I was ready to try to find this woman so I could sell her some swamp land from my home state of Florida. This is a prime example of the dumbing down of America. Nobody wants to take personal responsibility for anything anymore. Everything is everyone else’s fault: “I can’t find work because of George Bush,” “The man is keeping me down,” “Cigarettes are bad for you? I had no idea.” I’m sorry, but if you are not smart enough to read a label and notice how many calories are in it before you eat it, you deserve to get what’s coming to you. I can afford to lose a few pounds but I never once thought of suing Hooters for making their chicken wings so darn good that I am addicted to them. They do make a version with no breading; they are called naked wings, but I am not fooling myself, they are still fried in oil. And still tasty. Eating cereal called Cocoa Puffs, Froot Loops and Trix will never make you healthy. I eat Cocoa Pebbles in the morning and never once did I think, “wow this stuff is gonna make me ripped.” If this woman is so concerned about the health of her children and her family, why on Earth is she feeding them cereal in the morning? How about some fruit? No, she better not do that, if she finds a seed in her seedless watermelon she may start suing farmers next. Wake up America. Billy G. Woody Santa Monica

Greyhound runs away Editor: Just a little sad tale here. As of April 2, Greyhound discontinued service to the city of Santa Monica. This is sort of sad as I remember taking Greyhound when I was about 12 and those old wonderful Greyhound agents at the old station at 5th and Broadway. I’m going to miss seeing the greyhound buses stopping in Santa Monica. Mark Panitz Santa Monica

Money well spent? Editor: Since the taxpayers of Santa Monica, through the generosity of their City Council members to have financed at least $25,000 — with so-called discretionary funds — of the Hawaii trip that the SMMUSD choir took this past month never heard much of anything about the way-too expensive trip, ought not the children and the adults who accompanied them on that trip at least thank the council members for wasting our tax dollars so foolishly? How about thanking the public? Don Krok Santa Monica

Sickened over the poor ponies Editor: About the ponies at the Farmers’ Market (SMDP, March 12-13, page 1). I stopped buying my organic fruit and veggies at that market over two years ago. I couldn’t stand to see the sad hopeless look in the eyes of those unfortunate animals as they walked on the hard concrete in an endless circle hour after hour. Someone should investigate if they really do spend the rest of the week on a grassy pasture as the owner says. I doubt it. Pauline J. Baker Santa Monica

Fluoride is poison Editor: Fluoridation of our water supply is wrong. Running our water supply with poison is not what an environmentally-concerned city does. Have we become “soldout” as a community because everybody is interested in making a buck at the expense of “knowing better?” When City Hall gets sued from bone cancer victims in years to come, this will be a regretted decision.

Apology in order for Dr. Kevorkian? From 1990 to 1998, Dr. Jack Kevorkian assisted people who wanted to take their own lives. To do so, the methods varied as his technique was perfected, but the result was always the same. They were killed by what came to be known as Kevorkian’s “suicide machine,” built with $30 worth of parts scrounged from hardware stores and garage sales. Kevorkian’s patients were interviewed and counseled as to the gravity of their decision. The process led to some being turned away. Among those determined to be qualified for the process, however, they all had at least four things in common: ■ They were all severely disabled, if not considered terminally ill. ■ All had voluntarily chosen to not continue their lives because of their disability. ■ On each occasion it was the patient, not Dr. Kevorkian, who pushed the button on the “suicide machine” that released the agent that ended their life. ■ On each occasion, their deaths took only moments. Over the years numerous attempts to prosecute Dr. Kevorkian were made. Four criminal trials resulted in acquittals or mistrials. In several of those, lower courts declared that in the United States there is a constitutional right to die. Notwithstanding this “constitutional right,” however, in 1997 the Supreme Court apparently ruled that you may be damned if you help a patient in this effort. In short, they held that states have the right to outlaw doctor-assisted suicides if they so choose. Michigan did so and a jury convicted Dr. Kevorkian in 1999 of second-degree murder. His sentence: 10 to 25 years in prison. He remains there to this day, not eligible for parole until 2007. Now, compare his case with that of Terri Schiavo. On March 18, 2005, Terri Schiavo’s feeding tube was physically removed pursuant to an order of a court of law ensuring her eventual death. Can this be distinguished from the actions taken by Dr. Kevorkian? Most certainly, in the following ways: ■ Dr. Kevorkian’s patients voluntarily forfeited their own lives, whereas Terri’s life was taken from her by others without her explicit consent. ■ Kevorkian’s patients ended in mere moments, whereas Terri’s took 14 long and torturous days of pain, dehydration and starvation to bring about her passage. ■ The government made the deaths of Kevorkian’s patients illegal and they were forced to act in secrecy to avoid the government’s detection, whereas the official government sanction, if not approval, of Schiavo’s death and the process that brought it about was glaring. Police surrounded her to preserve the “integrity” of a degrading and torturous death, while people who attempted to alleviate her pain by administering a drink of water were arrested. ■ In Kevorkian’s case, judge after judge was petitioned to prosecute him,

with one ultimately succeeding, whereas in Schiavo’s case, judge after judge was petitioned to save her life and they not only refused to do so but, in fact, effectively facilitated her death with no less vigor and commitment than Kevorkian had displayed prior to going to prison. So then, are we not left with the following question: Is there any practical or moral difference between one who administers an agent (i.e. a lethal injection) to a patient that will produce immediate death and one who forcefully denies that same patient an agent absolutely necessary for life to continue (i.e. food and water)? Perhaps the following hypotheticals may illuminate the irony produced by all of this: Assume first that Terri Schiavo had been physically able to do so and specifically requested that Dr. Kevorkian assist her to effect her death by doing to her exactly what the judges involved in her case actually caused to transpire. Assume also that Kevorkian complied with this request and intentionally inflicted upon Terri Schiavo a death like the one we all just witnessed — a death far more hideous than Kevorkian ever dreamed of for any of his previous patients. Under these facts, would it seem appropriate in your opinion to release Dr. Kevorkian from prison so that he might serve on the bench in Florida — or perhaps even on the Supreme Court)? Now assume Dr. Kevorkian did these things to Terri Schiavo without her consent and, while doing so, showed nothing but contempt for the pleas of her family and friends to spare her life. Under these facts, would we not consider Kevorkian’s behavior to be that of a psychopath? Would merely sending such a man to prison be an adequate punishment for someone who would do such a thing to another human being? The question then becomes if prison is appropriate for Kevorkian whose acts were far less horrific, why not also for the judges involved in the Schiavo case? Based on this analysis, can we as a society avoid the conclusion that differing results in the Schiavo and Kevorkian cases are both logically and morally irreconcilable? And if we are brought to this conclusion, does that not leave us as a society with only a few options to remedy the conflict presented? Collectively, either we must condemn the actions of the judges involved in effecting the death of Terri Schiavo or we must promptly issue an apology to Kevorkian. In the end, however, we will probably choose to do neither. Thus, by default we will most probably select the only other option that remains: To turn a blind eye towards our hypocrisy. Sadly, however, this can only be achieved at the expense of justice. (Cliff Nichols is an attorney practicing in Santa Monica.

Our last-minute trip to New York was going to be productive for both my boyfriend and myself. He had business there, and I was going to be inspired by seeing good writing at work: We had tickets for “Saturday Night Live” and a new play, “Thom Paine (Based On Nothing).” Also, I’d get a chance to meet an upand-coming author, whose short stories have been published in book form and by The New Yorker, and one of which is currently being made into a movie. Go, go, gadget inspiration. To temper the overwhelming awe of it all, I made last-minute phone calls to city friends and got in touch with the one I most wanted to see, my modern dancer friend from college, Aubrey, who I’ve mentioned before. We planned to meet in the East Village for breakfast. New York was rainy. And congested and crowded and all the things I dream of escaping some day. I was there to be inspired, but I felt zoned out and out of touch. I couldn’t pay attention to anything. The play had been a one-man show — a long, stuttering monologue about life and raw emotion, and though it was well delivered, and the one-man was talented, I couldn’t stop thinking how self-important it sounded — it was what my mother would call “mental masturbation.” Still, it’s a success. He’s a success. He’s in. The world seems so big sometimes — like there’s all these other people already doing the stuff we desperately want to do, but it seems like there’s no more space for anyone else to do it. Like the “Saturday Night Live” people do their thing, and the “Thom Paine” playwright has his cache, and the published author is now the kind of guy who gets published, and after all that, there’s no need for more. We start out life as obedient children, doing what we’re told, and accepting that the important stuff is for grown-ups. So when do we move up? Experience creates confidence, and confidence enables action, and action creates experience. Am I wrong, or does it seem like an impenetrable cycle? Are all the seats taken at the adults’

I don’t see her much, but I consider her a very close comrade and I do, have, and always will admire her creativity and passion. “So,” I asked, “how’s it coming?” expecting a usually confident reply about her current endeavors. But there was a pause. And therein, I saw a quick flash of timidity in her eyes — a brief moment of self-consciousness that I recognized from my own experience in trying to do something that often seems impossible. Her look said, “yeah, I know, I’m in New York City, trying to be a working modern dancer, ha, ha. It’s crazy, ha, ha. Silly me.” It’s the brief moment of timidity that follows actually saying out loud to the world what it is you want to do here. Still ... next to her in the booth was her nylon bag — just like she’d always carried to and from the studio in college — packed full with notebooks of ideas and musical possibilities. She pulled out the preliminary rendition of a postcard she’s had a friend make to publicize her June showing in Boston. And she told me about the dancers she’s working with and the way she’s gotten a job at a local studio so that she doesn’t have to pay for space. Her schedule is busy and she’s fitting in even though no one ever gave her a formal invitation. The moment passed. It was evident to me that in spite of that fear, that shy though bold admission, she was doing it. In spite of that timid look way back deep in her eyes, all signs pointed to “doing it.” I smiled at her and sipped my coffee. “You’re doing it,” I said. Even though all the spaces may seem taken, she is making a space of her own in this world. On the plane ride home my boyfriend asked me if the trip was worthwhile, if I felt encouraged by the vibrant city and the successful people — the author, the playwright, Tina Fey, etc. “Absolutely,” I said, thinking only of Aubrey, who is pulling up a chair.

which taught children of homeless families about dance, art, music and theater at an LA family housing unit in Boyle Heights. Skulski currently volunteers with the Village of Childhelp West and the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation. She also is part of a team trying to put together an LA area women’s center. The plan is still in the works, and they already have feminist Gloria Steinem’s endorsement. Skulski attended Canisius College where she received a bachelor of science degree in marketing. Skulski headed west, originally intending to begin a master’s program for administration in the arts. She is currently studying business and human resources management at UCLA’s extension school. Since moving to LA, Skulski has worked in human resources at a number of firms. Currently she works at Reed Business Information as a human resources administrator. When she isn’t at work or serving the community, Skulski enjoys oil painting, drawing, horseback riding and roller blading. She considers herself an LA restaurant expert, claiming that she can recommend dining for any occasion — down to what dish should be ordered. Skulski recently shared her thoughts and insight with the Daily Press on her lunch break in downtown LA. What attracts you to women’s issues? “I think it’s just being with that struggle, and knowing that I’m just sort of like a Teflon pan, in a lot of situations ... My whole childhood, I stuck up for people against bullies, people that were handicapped or retarded in school, or someone that a bully was picking on.” What’s your least favorite thing about working on the commission? “I’d say cooperation in a non-partisan way.” What’s your favorite part? “People are just so cute. You know, they’re just so sweet and cute and ultimately mean well and you know whether they’re beaming about something or struggling with something. I think it’s just great that there’s other people around to help them. I like to be a part of that.” How did you get involved with the women’s commission? “A friend of mine that I hadn’t seen in a couple years remembered how active I was — always involved in the world news, local news, and that kind of stuff ... she thought I should volunteer for the commission ... and I said ‘only if they need me. I’m not going to just volunteer anywhere. I have to make sure that the commission really needs someone like me because I’m someone that’s very active, and I don’t like to sit around a big room and not generate some activity or results. “And so I went to one of the meetings of the women’s commission and through some of the dialogue that was going on, I realized that I could be at least a little helpful, and could contribute ... They interviewed me, I was chosen, I was sworn in with three other people in November of 2002, and then in 2002 I

immediately started a few projects which I thought were interesting, and the next September I became vice-chair. “And the projects I was on — and actually still am on — would be the report on the status of women that came out, which was just accepted by the City Council in December, 2004. But we’re still working on the next step and then the other one was the work-life survey, which was just trying to come up with the results.” Describe what the work-life survey is. “It’s to find out the best places for women to work in Santa Monica — like the best balance between work and life and your business world, your professional world and how you balance that with your personal life. And we wanted to find out who offered maternity leave and vacation days. We have all the results, but now we’re figuring out the summarizing part of it. And we’ll probably release it sometime hopefully in April.” What prompted you to get involved on the commission? “There’s so many things. Besides the fact that I think there was a mutual need ... and the sort of niche they had at the time that needed to be filled. I tend to get people to do things that they normally wouldn’t do but I make it sound exciting or interesting. And I don’t know if any of it was really lacking in the community, because there are a lot of women that are involved in the community but I wasn’t aware of it at the time ... And I think that there’s a huge talent pool in Santa Monica of extremely buoyant, talented women but the community hasn’t entirely tapped into it. And if we can get some more of those people, it would only better the community if they became more involved.” Are you working on any other projects? “I’ve done just general projects I’ve helped on. One of the commissioners put together a screening of ‘Iron Jawed Angels,’ you know the movie with Hilary Swank that was on HBO. It was about the suffragettes, and women’s right to vote and in combination with the election, we put it on in September. And the League of Women Voters was there. We try to get people to vote. It was at SMC and we had two speakers. We had Susan Esteridge, who is a USC law professor. She was the campaign manager for Michael Dukakis. And I’m almost certain that she’s the first female political campaign manager for a (presidential candidate). “And then, Midge Costanza who was the political campaign advisor for Jimmy Carter. So they spoke about the importance of voting, especially women voting, girls voting. But I guess they’d be a woman by the time they were old enough to vote.” Have you worked for other women’s organizations? “Well, I did some volunteering for NCJW, National Council of Jewish Women. I’m not Jewish. It was one of the groups that I knew about that specifically did things for women locally. It was right around the corner from where I lived in LA.” What other causes have you worked for? “I did so many — AIDS walks, Hands

Across America, a hike for women’s breast cancer, and that was really embarrassing because there was a bald woman there — and it was around the time that Sinead O’Connor was really popular and I didn’t realize that this woman had cancer. She was walking along side of us but I didn’t say anything to her. It was sort of my own internal, ‘whoa, she has so much energy, my age walking along beside me, very upbeat and kind and all those wonderful things’ and then she told me she had cancer.” Why do you volunteer so much? “Besides being in my nature — or anyone’s nature — I think there’s people that will do it more than other people’s disposition ... I think a lot of it is my father. He’s pretty much a philanthropist. He’s a blue-collar philanthropist. He does so many things. He lives in Buffalo, and he’s really into veterans, like war veterans, even though he wasn’t in the war. He does a lot of charity work, one of them being that he loves playing billiards, and he has pool tournaments, where up to 200 people in the general area — people from like Pennsylvania, to Michigan, all the way down to North Carolina show up to play and all the proceeds go to the cause. I think he started with the veterans, but I mean he’s hit a lot of them like children’s hospitals. “... Right now I’m trying to put together a group of people doing a triathlon which will be the first time for the company I work for and it’s for the Pediatric AIDS Foundation and it’s called the Entertainment Industry Challenge. We just started like literally two weeks ago pulling people together, figuring out how we’re going to volunteer for it. We have a cycling coach that’s already signed up. We have a swim coach, and we just need a running coach. So that’ll be fun. About 15 people decided to do it so far in our company at this location. We only sent out one announcement so it feels like it could at least double.” What surprised you most about the report on the status of women? “Well, I remember the first thing that I always flip back to whenever I look at it, was these students that are female, the majority of them take A.P. English way more than they take advanced math or science. And it’s just this huge huge difference in how many of these girls or women take that versus math or science ... We don’t know if it’s something that they’re taught by society when they’re younger like, ‘Eeew, math and science is just for boys‚’ or maybe something through the school system, maybe they’re encouraged by their teachers, getting more pats on their back for English and grammar versus how well they know a formula. So we don’t know, which is interesting because in this one class at UCLA, there was this ... psychology test that someone could take and the majority ... there are different things like you could be thinkers or feelers, and the majority of the class was female — like 90 percent — yet the majority were thinkers and somewhere in the back of my head I was thinking, ‘well maybe they’re taking English because they want to emote what they feel to people ... So I asked the teacher, ‘so is this normal? Has this always been the case, or was it different 20 years ago?’ Her answer

was, ‘Oh yeah, 20 years ago you’d have more men that were the thinkers and women that are more, you know, emotion.’ And I said, ‘well, what do you think is going to happen in the future?’ And she said ‘Right now if you look at youth or teenagers, something like that, they would be equal, about equal, the thinkers and feelers (among men and women.)’” What’s it been like working with the City Council? “Oh it’s been great. They passed our report. Whenever I did anything to have or be approved, or a press release to go out, city staff is always like, ‘OK, great, go with it.’ It was never like a daunting type thing ... they’ve always been very supportive. I mean, our city staff liaisons are phenomenal ... so much support in certain parts of the project.” What are your goals for the rest of your term? “I’d really like to reach out to more women ... Our next step might be housing for women ... I would definitely like the communication to remain as great as it was, and be forward moving with the City Council and forward moving with the city, and all the non-profits and other boards and commissions we have to work with in order to sort of diagnose and implement, and areas that are lacking in services or support. And also women that come to us at our meetings and say, ‘Hey, you know I’m a homeless woman. This is what’s going on.’” Do you get that very often? “We do. We had someone that we helped that mentioned some things about a shelter but the city was already on it was great and helped tremendously.” What’s your biggest accomplishment on the commission? “Right now it’s the report. That was a big, big deal. And in a lot of ways, for our commission, I think it may be a bigger deal than we realize at this point.” What are women in Santa Monica like as a whole? “As I remember, the majority of the age was in their 30s, from the census data. I believe the majority was white. I don’t remember it being a huge difference, male-female, educated, from what I remember, most of them have bachelors and some have masters and some have Ph.Ds. I think the majority of the people in Santa Monica that have a masters degree, the majority are women, but when you go on to the Ph.D. level, the majority of men have Ph.Ds.” Would you ever run for City Council? “Yeah, absolutely.” What’s the biggest challenge for women in Santa Monica? “Out of anything? Economics, having more money. That was another thing, after a certain salary range it is just unbelievable men make so much more than some women. We don’t know if it’s some movie star that happened to fill out the census that skewed everything, but yeah, definitely. I don’t know if it’s choice of profession or if that profession hasn’t sort of made it in society to be that more respected to actually make more money.”

Extortion scheme involved a tuba ad and 9,000 ATM cards EXTORTION, from page 1

In addition to the poisoned baby formula, the package contained a jar of horseradish contaminated with boric acid, a jar of baby food with glass shards and an infant juice drink laced with hydraulic fluid. While Dickinson threatened to place contaminated and dangerous food products on store shelves, there is no evidence that he actually followed through on the threat. However, in the letter to Ralphs, Dickinson demanded money and stated that failure to follow the demands would result in a wide range of tampered foods being placed into the food supply. On March 1, 2004, Dickinson sent a second letter to Ralphs’ headquarters, according to a plea agreement he made with prosecutors. In the letter, he demanded $180,000 be placed into an account and Ralphs distribute 9,000 debit cards that could be used to access the account. Dickinson demanded the debit cards be distributed to Ralphs customers in Santa Monica, San Diego and San

Ramon. He also demanded an advertisement for a German tuba be placed in the March 25, 2004, Los Angeles Recycler, a regional publication for classified advertisements. He instructed that the ATM pin number to access the $180,000 be listed in the ad as the tuba’s model number. Ralphs began distributing the 9,000 debit cards on the afternoon of March 26, 2004. Dickinson made a small purchase in Ralphs, and he received a debit card. A surveillance team at the Santa Monica Ralphs spotted a man on a bicycle who fit the description of Dickinson, who had been identified from a video at the Venice Post Office where Dickinson mailed the original package. On May 5 of 2004, special agents with the FBI searched Dickinson’s home, at which time they found a yellow jacket and other clothing items he was wearing when he mailed the tainted food products to Ralphs. Investigators also found drafts of the extortion letter on his computer. The case was handled jointly by the FBI and the Food and Drug Administration, which received help from the U.S. Postal Inspection Service.

Homeless man’s murder trial to conclude this week TRIAL, from page 1

base system, authorities said. Convicted felons are required to give a DNA sample, which puts them in the database for authorities to periodically check. Wright, 49, was found in the California state prison system serving a six-year sentence after biting a Santa Monica Police officer’s finger during an unrelated incident, authorities said. In 2003, a jury found Wright guilty of battery, resisting arrest, and failing to register himself as a sex offender. Wright appeared in court on Friday calm and seemingly skinnier than he has in previous proceedings. He wore a blue LA County Jail jumpsuit, glasses, and carried his ruffled legal papers. His grayish hair was set loose in an afro. Wright’s former public defender, Leonard N. Garber, has been on “stand-by” during the trial, often shifting out of frustration in one of the juror’s seats as Wright attempts to defend himself. Garber said he is Wright’s legally-appointed attorney through the California Bar Association who Wright fired last year, possibly for disagreeing with his decision to not have a jury trial. Garber said outside of the courtroom on Friday that

Wright has done a poor job cross-examining the witnesses during trial. On Thursday, Wright asked the DNA expert how he was certain the semen and saliva samples taken from Labbe were from him and not from a dog, to which the witness explained that only human DNA is registered with the Justice Department’s database. Garber said although Wright’s DNA samples were found on or near the victim’s dead body, it doesn’t prove he was responsible for the murder, since the semen could have been inside Labbe a few days before the murder took place. Judge Kwan has been very thorough in the trial, providing Wright with as many legal opportunities as possible to defend himself within the full spectrum of the law, sources said. On Friday, when the prosecution was prepared to present its last witness and make closing statements, the trial was put on hold so the court could verify whether the witness — previously referred for a psychiatric evaluation — was legally competent to testify. Wright himself was evaluated by three psychiatrists to determine whether he was competent to stand trial, let alone defend himself. Garber disagreed with the panel of psychiatrists, who found that Wright is competent. The trial is expected conclude early this week.

STATE

State offers life raft for first-time home buyers BY JIM WASSERMAN Associated Press Writer

SACRAMENTO — In a state where half the houses for sale cost almost $500,000 and low income means a $95,000 salary in Marin County, the state’s affordable housing bank is throwing a new life raft to residents struggling to buy their first homes. That’s a fixed-rate, 35-year loan — an alternative to the mortgage industry’s conventional 30-year loan — offering buyers interest-only payments the first five years. Though more costly in the long run, it’s aimed at those who can’t initially afford a full payment, and fear waiting until the state’s housing market rises still higher, state housing officials said. State housing banks in Rhode Island, Virginia and Wisconsin already offer similar deals. The loan program will “open doors to thousands of Californians who may have thought buying their first home was impossible,” said Theresa Parker, executive director of the California Housing Finance Agency.

By state guidelines, eligible customers could include moderate-income Ventura County families earning nearly $113,000 a year who are trying to buy new houses worth up to $811,000. In Central California, a lowincome Kings County household earning $43,000 a year could use the loan to buy a new home worth $250,000. "Given the high cost of housing, without this they may not qualify at all,” Parker said. In California, where prices have escalated dramatically in recent years, the program will also apply to $647,000 existing homes in Santa Clara County, $643,000 homes in San Francisco and $620,000 houses in Santa Barbara County. Unlike the increasingly popular interest-only loans in the private sector that come with variable-rate interest rates, the CHFA loans keep the same interest rate for 35 years. First-time buyers can also qualify for no money down or a variety of state-run down payment assistance programs. The current interest rate for the program is 5.25 percent. Parker acknowledged the “higher risk” to lenders

associated with a program “where the customer doesn’t really have anything out of pocket.” But she said it helps would-be buyers avoid even greater risks with variablerate loans. Mortgage industry officials hailed the move as “thinking outside the box.” “It’s aggressive and exactly what’s needed at this point in California,” said Michael Faust, legislative chairman for the California Association of Mortgage Brokers. By state calculations, buyers taking a $300,000 home loan with monthly payments of $1,656, would pay $1,312 a month the first five years, initially saving $344 monthly. The CHFA, a 30-year-old state agency formed to help first-time home buyers, offers below market-rate loans by selling tax-exempt bonds. In the fiscal year that ended last June 30, the agency financed 6,668 loans worth $1.24 billion. The state bank’s new program will also make the payments for six months if the buyer loses a job. Parker said many potential first-time buyers hesitate for fear of losing jobs, then the home.

New Mexico governor signs dog-friendly antifreeze law BY DEBORAH BAKER Associated Press Writer

SANTA FE, N.M. — Scooby got his due last week, as the governor signed into law a requirement that antifreeze have a bitter taste to deter dogs from lapping it up. Scooby, a golden retriever from Bernalillo, had to be destroyed in 2003 after drinking the poisonous liquid. His death prompted an Albuquerque city ordinance a year ago, and now the statewide requirement. “Scooby’s Law is now official,” Gov. Bill Richardson said at a ceremony in his office. The law will protect not only animals, but also children who may be tempted to drink the sweet-tasting and highly toxic substance, the governor said. Witnessing the bill signing — with his forepaws resting briefly on the big marble

table — was 4-month-old Dukes, a blackand-gray bundle of puppy energy rescued from an animal shelter and owned by Albuquerque Mayor Martin Chavez. Chavez said the new law means lives will be saved, “and that’s as good as it gets in government.” As New Mexico joins Oregon and California in mandating the manufacture of bitter-tasting antifreeze, Chavez also said he is confident a federal Scooby’s Law will one day be enacted. Animals drink antifreeze that has leaked out of cars, been dumped in open areas or left out purposely by people trying to poison them. Rep. Kathy McCoy, R-Cedar Crest, the bill’s sponsor, lost a dog to antifreeze poisoning, “and it’s an exruciating death and something no dog should ever have to go

through,” she said. Under the new law, antifreeze sold in New Mexico after Jan. 1, 2006 — and manufactured after July 1, 2005 — must be bitter-tasting. Richardson also signed a second measure aimed at protecting New Mexicans from dangerous dogs. It would authorize animal control authorities, with court warrants, to seize and impound dogs determined to be dangerous or potentially dangerous. Owners of such dogs could be required to register them, keep them in fenced yards or locked pens, neuter them, and take them to socialization programs. Under certain circumstances, the dogs could be ordered destroyed. Owners whose dogs, without provocation, cause serious injury or death to

domestic animals could be guilty of fourth-degree felonies. Owners whose dogs seriously injure or kill people could be convicted of third-degree felonies. “Pet owners must take responsibility for their animals or be held accountable,” the governor said. The governor was joined at the bill signing by 5-year-old Emma-Leigh Chambers-Allen of Los Chavez, who was mauled by a neighbor’s pit bull last June. The little girl — whose scars are still visible — had more than 200 stitches in her face, said her mother, Tamara Chambers. Her jaw was broken in three places and she had fractured neck vertebrae, as well. She still faces reconstructive surgery. “I am pleased that she is recovering well,” the governor said.

Whistleblower group targets Hanford workers with advertisements BY JOHN K. WILEY Associated Press Writer

SPOKANE, Wash. — A Hanford whistleblower group has begun airing television and radio commercials encouraging workers who have witnessed safety lapses at the federal nuclear reservation to step forward. The spots feature Matt Taylor, a former Hanford nuclear reservation worker and

whistleblower represented by the Government Accountability Project, a nonprofit, public interest organization and law firm that paid for the ads. “Matt Taylor’s case is just one of dozens we encounter at Hanford every year,” Tom Carpenter, GAP nuclear oversight program director said in a news release. “These ads encourage Hanford workers to take a stand to protect their community, the environment and themselves.”

Hanford, part of the World War II Manhattan Project to make plutonium for nuclear weapons, stores about 53 million gallons of the most dangerous radioactive and chemical wastes in 177 underground tanks. The federal nuclear reservation is now engaged in the cleanup of the nation’s largest collection of nuclear waste, a $2 billion-a-year job involving some 11,000 workers. The spots began running Thursday and

primarily will run in the Tri-Cities and Yakima areas, where many Hanford workers live, GAP said. Department of Energy Hanford spokeswoman Colleen French declined to comment specifically on the GAP ads, but said: “In general, the safety of employees is our number one goal every day. Any employee ... can make their concerns about safety known. We have an open door policy.”

PEOPLE IN THE NEWS

Fight breaks out during Kayne West autograph sesh By The Associated Press

FRESNO, Calif. — Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West was shuffled out the backdoor of a new urban boutique after a fight cut short the entertainer’s autographsigning session, police said. Owners of the FTK store abruptly canceled the grand opening event and locked the doors after the fight broke out Saturday between a patron and a security guard. The brawl erupted about 40 minutes after West began signing autographs. Authorities spent nearly a half-hour clearing about 1,000 fans from the store’s parking lot as a police helicopter hovered above. “Once security couldn’t control it, we had to shut it down,” store employee Aron Hekimian said. An after-party at a nearby club with the producerturned-rapper went on as planned, said Sam Hensen, the store’s co-owner. “Everybody’s chance to meet Kanye West was ruined,” said Anna Reyna, 19, who waited in line for the rapper’s autograph but never got to see him. DETROIT — Concerns about rehearsal scheduling caused opera star Jessye Norman to drop out of next month’s performances of the slave drama “Margaret Garner.” Norman, a 59-year-old soprano, had been scheduled to play the role of Cilla — a sympathetic mother-in-law to Margaret Garner — during the May 7-22 performances at the Detroit Opera House, according to a statement released Saturday. The Michigan Opera Theatre announced Friday that Norman would be replaced by Angela M. Brown, who created a sensation last year with her performance in

Verdi’s “Aida” at the Metropolitan Opera. “Margaret Garner,” a collaboration of Pulitzer Prizewinning novelist Toni Morrison and composer Richard Danielpour, is based on Garner’s escape from Kentucky to the free state of Ohio in 1856. The story inspired Morrison’s 1987 novel “Beloved.” When slave-hunters tracked down Garner, her husband and children, she slit her baby daughter’s throat in a thwarted attempt to kill the family and avoid returning to slavery. She was found guilty of “destroying property” and returned to slavery. CLEVELAND — The home where the classic holiday movie “A Christmas Story” was filmed has been purchased on eBay by a California man for $150,000. Brian Jones could not resist when his wife told him eBay was offering the Cleveland home where the film family lived in the 1940s and the main character, a boy named Ralphie, daydreamed of shooting bad guys with a BB gun he hoped to get for Christmas. The starting bid for the four-bedroom house was $99,999. Jones, 29, of San Diego, plans to restore the home’s exterior to the deep yellow with green-trimmed windows it had in the movie and revamp the interior to resemble its movie appearance. He also wants to create a museum in the home and open a gift store selling items linked to the movie, including Ovaltine, Little Orphan Annie decoder rings and “leg lamps” like the one Ralphie’s father proudly displayed in the front window of his family’s house. Two years ago, Jones started a Web site and began selling 45-inch-tall lamps of a woman’s leg in a fishnet stocking and high-heel shoe.

“A Christmas Story,” is based on the writing of Jean Shepherd, who died in 1999. The movie was filmed in 1983. It is Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. property, and the National Entertainment Collectibles Association, in Clark, N.J., holds a license for marketing products from the film, including the lamps. Warner Bros. had no comment on Jones’ museum proposal or any property rights involved, a studio spokesman said last week. NECA did not respond to a message last week. SALINAS, Calif. — More than a hundred supporters turned out Sunday for the end of a 24-hour “read-in” to help save the libraries in John Steinbeck’s hometown. People gathered to hear writers, actors, musicians and activists read passages from their favorites works outside Cesar Chavez library, one of the Salinas libraries facing closure. Facing record deficits, the City Council voted in December to shut all three libraries in the city memorialized in Steinbeck’s 1952 novel “East of Eden.” If they close, the blue-collar town of 150,000 could become the most populous U.S. city without a public library. Salinas is the 1902 birthplace of the Nobel Prize-winning author of “Cannery Row” and “Of Mice and Men.” The read-in began Saturday and concluded Sunday with a march and music festival. Actor Hector Elizondo, of the TV hospital drama “Chicago Hope,” attended the event. “The last thing we need is to have libraries closed,” he said. Mary Mecartney, a spokeswoman for the UFW, said thousands of people signed petitions asking state legislators to reconsider the budget cuts.
