Concord Prep rising from the ashes BY EMILY SKEHAN Special to the Daily Press

MID-CITY Things are looking up for Concord Prep. It’s Sunday and a handful of teenagers from the small private high school are dressed in medieval garb, practicing lines in a student’s back yard in preparation for a school production of “The Tempest.” The scene is fitting for the general state of the school these days. There are only a few students in the Shakespearean play and just 37 enrolled at Concord Prep, formed on the fly following the closure of its parent, Concord High, which filed for bankruptcy in November and had to close its doors, putting the futures of roughly 50 students and their teachers in jeopardy. But despite the small numbers and lack of an auditorium to stage the play in, the students are having fun — a tight knit gaggle of adolescents that seem truly energized by each other and the drama teacher. The play is being held at Santa Monica’s Main Library instead of a school auditorium because Concord Prep doesn’t own its own Brandon Wise brandonw@smdp.com

New group wants to give new rep to airport BY ASHLEY ARCHIBALD Daily Press Staff Writer

SMO The Santa Monica Airport has its share of enemies, or at least vehement detractors, but now it can claim to have a group of friends. A new community organization called Friends of the Santa Monica Airport, or FOSMO, formed in November 2010 with the aim of promoting aviation and educating neighbors and others about what actually goes on at the embattled airport. FOSMO’s membership, approximately 130-strong, is comprised of pilots, flight instructors and mechanics dedicated to the art of flight.

It’s continuing mission: To promote aviation at Santa Monica Airport; to educate the public as to the past, present and future benefits of aviation and thereby protect its community. “FOSMO was formed to give pilots, certified instructors and mechanics a voice and place to rally for aviation,” said President Robby Robotham. And aviation, at least in Santa Monica, needs the support. The airport has found itself embroiled in controversy, both in litigation between the Federal Aviation Administration and City Hall, as well as complaints from neighbors regarding noise, pollution and perceived danger.

Those fears were fueled by the 2010 death of a pilot who crashed into the nearby Penmar Golf Course. In March, Los Angeles City Council members Bill Rosendahl and Janice Hahn further attacked SMO by introducing a resolution to support the closure of flight schools at the airport. Rather than take on City Hall, or any of the other groups politicizing the airport and its flight schools, FOSMO wants to build goodwill by having open, honest and educational conversations with the public. Youth outreach is a huge part of the agenda, from presentations in schools to SEE CP PAGE 11

2012 presidential candidates want you to ‘like’ them BETH FOUHY Associated Press

NEW YORK Republican Tim Pawlenty disclosed his 2012 presidential aspirations on Facebook. Rival Mitt Romney did it with a tweet. President Barack Obama kicked off his re-election bid with a digital video emailed to the 13 million online backers who helped power his historic campaign in 2008. Welcome to The Social Network, presidential campaign edition. The candidates and contenders have embraced the Internet to far greater degrees than previous White House campaigns, communicating directly with voters on platforms where they work and play. If Obama’s online army helped define the last campaign and Howard Dean’s Internet fundraising revolutionized the Democratic primary in 2004, next year’s race will be the first to reflect the broad cultural migration to the digital world. “You have to take your message to the

places where people are consuming content and spending their time,”said Romney’s online director, Zac Moffatt. “We have to recognize that people have choices and you have to reach them where they are, and on their terms.” The most influential of those destinations include the video sharing website YouTube; Facebook, the giant social network with 500 million active users; and Twitter, the cacophonous conversational site where news is made and shared in tweets of 140 characters or less. All the campaigns have a robust Facebook presence, using the site to post videos and messages and to host online discussions. In the latest indication of the site’s reach and influence, Obama plans to visit Facebook headquarters in California this coming Wednesday for a live chat with company founder Mark Zuckerberg and to take questions from users who submit questions on the site. Candidates have embraced Twitter with an intensity that rivals pop star Justin Bieber’s. Twitter was the Republican hope-

“Great patio dining for the whole family”

fuls’ platform of choice last Wednesday, moments after Obama gave a budget speech calling for some tax increases and decrying GOP proposals to cut Medicare. “President Obama doesn’t get it. The fear of higher taxes tomorrow hurts job creation today,” Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour tweeted. “The president’s plan will kill jobs and increase the deficit,” former House Speaker Newt Gingrich warned in a tweet, attaching a link to a more detailed statement posted on Facebook. In the past, candidates would have pointed supporters to their websites for such a response. Now, as Moffatt puts it, “the campaign site may be headquarters, but it needs digital embassies across the web.” Republicans once seemed slow to harness the power of the web. The party’s 2008 nominee, Arizona Sen. John McCain, told reporters he didn’t even use email. The 2012 hopefuls have worked hard to prove their Internet savvy, particularly with social media.

in big numbers, but they’re not quite screaming over the latest installment of a horror-comedy franchise. The 20th Century Fox animated family flick “Rio,” featuring the voices of Anne Hathaway and Jesse Eisenberg, led the weekend box office with a healthy $40 million debut, according to studio estimates Sunday. It was the best debut so far this year, topping another animated comedy, “Rango,” by about $2 million. The slasher comedy “Scream 4,” released by the Weinstein Co. banner Dimension Films, opened at No. 2 with just $19.3 million. That’s a fraction of the business for the previous two sequels, which both debuted at over $30 million more than a decade ago. Business finally climbed for Hollywood, which has been in a prolonged slide. Revenues rose for only the second time since last November, coming in at $134 million, up 12 percent compared to the same weekend last year, when “Kick-Ass” led with $19.8 million. “I’m going to be so bold as to say this may be the beginning of the turnaround,” said Paul Dergarabedian, box-office analyst for Hollywood.com. “Summer’s almost here and it’s the most important movie-going season. It couldn’t be coming at a better time.” After two weekends in the No. 1 spot, Russell Brand’s Easter bunny tale “Hop” slipped to third-place with $11.2 million. Released by Universal,“Hop”raised its total to $82.6 million. The weekend’s other new wider release, director Robert Redford’s Lincoln-assassination drama “The Conspirator,” premiered at No. 9 with $3.9 million. The movie stars Robin Wright and James McAvoy in a courtroom tale of a woman accused of aiding Lincoln assassin John Wilkes Booth. Released by Roadside Attractions, “The Conspirator” played in narrower release of 707 theaters, roughly one-fifth the cinema count for the weekend’s top three movies. “Rio” opened well above Fox studio expectations. A tale of romance and smuggling involving rare birds, “Rio” opened overseas a week earlier and has climbed to a $168 million total worldwide.

EDITOR IN CHIEF

Watch out, bike riders Editor:

So, Santa Monica wants to make a bike friendly city. I am for it, as soon as the riders become more respectful to cars. This is my second letter about an experience with riders on Arizona Avenue where there is a bike path. Thursday, April 13, I was driving south on 15th Street from Wilshire. I am always cautious at Arizona because of so many pedestrians due to the medical buildings and the hospital. I made a complete stop at the stop sign, and was signaling for a right turn onto Arizona when I noticed someone coming from my left, and yes, it was a man probably in his 60s blowing right through the stop on Arizona. I had to stop quickly, so as not to hit him. As I passed him I said through the passenger window that he is to stop at such intersections. His reply was “cut me some slack, lady, when did you become a policeman.” I think I did cut him some “slack” by not hitting him. I am all for having a safer city for riders, but they have to obey the “law of the road” and not be so arrogant toward drivers. I have three children who grew up in Santa Monica and went through Franklin, Lincoln and Santa Monica High School. They were all born at SM Hospital and have bricks from the old hospital building. I can remember having to go to court, before a judge, if they violated the law on their bikes. This happened only two times, as they had to pay a $5 fine. Now riders hardly get a slap on the hand and are adults who should know better. The problem today is that too many think they are “entitled” to do as they please. Maybe the city will start addressing the problem if a few people make them aware of how problematic this is becoming.

LAST WEEK, GEORGINA AND MARGUERITA

residents told the City Council that City Hall was barking up the wrong tree. Neighbors had received flyers from City Hall advising that the iconic, 100-yearold Canary Island Palm trees that line their streets between Ocean Avenue and 14th Street would be supplemented with sycamore trees. Residents told City Council they didn’t want any other kinds of trees visually interfering with the majestic palms that defined their streets. I talked to Barbara Stinchfield, director of Community and Cultural Services who now oversees the city’s urban forest. “The flyer stated that sites adjacent to their homes were selected for new sycamore trees because of the need for increased canopy cover on their street. The proposed planting of the sycamores did not include taking out any palms,” she said. Stinchfield told me there’s a need to add a second tree species to mono-species streets like Marguerita and Georgina to fill in, act as a replacement for trees that are removed and to help prevent the spread of an incurable fungus that’s always fatal to giant palms. She said that after the flyer was distributed, she met with some of the neighbors last month and informed them planting would be suspended and sycamores would be removed from the draft “street tree species list.” Stinchfield, the Urban Forest Management Plan Task Force (UFMPTF) and city arborists are working on selecting both alternative and replacement trees for the list. She assured me that the selection process will be well vetted “in open public workshops to be held in May and June. Everybody will have a chance to participate.” What about the existing palms on Marguerita and Georgina? According to Stinchfield, “On Georgina, there are currently 12 declining palms of which two were removed in 2010. No replacement trees were planted. Marguerita currently has 32 declining palms with no removals since the mid1990s.” Since replacement palms can also acquire the fungus, alternate species are needed. Even though Stinchfield and members of the UMPTF had met with Marguerita and Georgina residents, a handful of neighbors appeared at council last week complaining that their majestic palms would not have exclusivity on their streets under City Hall’s plans. They predicted declines in property values if other tree species were added and therefore vowed political retaliation against future school parcel tax ballot measures. Ouch! These folks play hardball. There’s only one problem. There may not be a choice. As Stinchfield pointed out, planting more palms could exacerbate the spread of the fungus. The only alternative to

planting non-palm species may be no trees at all. City Hall’s notification process is frequently criticized. The timing of this flyer was poor she told me. “There was a communication error,” she said. “Planning got ahead of public opinion.” In this case, it may be these residents — many of them veterans of the “hedge wars” seven years ago — are skeptical of proposed changes to their streets and distrust City Hall. They might have felt it would be a good idea to acquire some political clout as a back-up in case the planning process doesn’t suit their fancy. PICO VEGGIE GARDEN IS BACK

Last May 24, I wrote about an unused landscape planter in the Farmers’ Market area of Virginia Park. As a community project, farmers and Pico market folks planted vegetables and herbs in the empty planter. Although the spontaneous community garden was a very cool idea, had an educational component and neighborhood support, a City Hall grinch spotted the veggies and said, “Oh No! That can’t happen." The Community Maintenance Department quickly dispatched groundskeepers to obliterate the offending veggies. Nondescript bushes took their place. Recently, someone put a bug in Mayor Richard Bloom’s ear about “the little garden that was” and he got involved. City Hall bureaucrats backed down and wisely decided to surrender the planter to the farmers. The decorative bushes were removed. New lettuce, cilantro, corn, zucchini and other herbs and vegetables were planted by market staff. The planter is "blooming” again. Hurrah! TREES FOR 20TH AND CLOVERFIELD — AT LAST

Speaking of planting street trees, there’s a streetscape proposal for new landscaping on 20th Street and Cloverfield Boulevard in the Pico Neighborhood that’s been waiting for implementation for a dozen years. This proposal, approved by Pico neighbors and City Council, would bring new shade trees and hardscaping to sidewalks and parkways on 20th and Cloverfield between Pico Boulevard and the I-10 freeway. There’s good news in the form of a timetable to finally complete the work. City engineer Lee Swain e-mailed: “The design is scheduled to be completed in the next month or so and submitted for plan check review and final approval. The bid documents will be prepared and the project is anticipated to be advertised in July with council approval for an award of a construction contract in September. A construction start date is anticipated in October 2011 with completion of construction anticipated for summer 2012.” BILL can be reached at mr.bilbau@gmail.com

China, India at war over water DENIS D. GRAY Associated Press

BAHIR JONAI, India The wall of water raced through narrow Himalayan gorges in northeast India, gathering speed as it raked the banks of towering trees and boulders. When the torrent struck their island in the Brahmaputra river, the villagers remember, it took only moments to obliterate their houses, possessions and livestock. No one knows exactly how the disaster happened, but everyone knows whom to blame: neighboring China. “We don’t trust the Chinese,” says fisherman Akshay Sarkar at the resettlement site where he has lived since the 2000 flood. “They gave us no warning. They may do it again.” About 800 kilometers (500 miles) east, in northern Thailand, Chamlong Saengphet stands in the Mekong river, in water that comes only up to her shins. She is collecting edible river weeds from dwindling beds. A neighbor has hung up his fishing nets, his catches now too meager. Using words bordering on curses, they point upstream, toward China. The blame game, voiced in vulnerable river towns and Asian capitals from Pakistan to Vietnam, is rooted in fear that China’s accelerating program of damming every major river flowing from the Tibetan plateau will trigger natural disasters, degrade fragile ecologies, divert vital water supplies. A few analysts and environmental advocates even speak of water as a future trigger for war or diplomatic strong-arming, though others strongly doubt it will come to that. Still, the remapping of the water flow in the world’s most heavily populated and thirstiest region is happening on a gigantic scale, with potentially strategic implications. On the eight great Tibetan rivers alone, almost 20 dams have been built or are under construction while some 40 more are planned or proposed. China is hardly alone in disrupting the region’s water flows. Others are doing it with potentially even worse consequences. But China’s vast thirst for power and water, its control over the sources of the rivers and its ever-growing political clout make it a singular target of criticism and suspicion. “Whether China intends to use water as a political weapon or not, it is acquiring the capability to turn off the tap if it wants to — a leverage it can use to keep any riparian neighbors on good behavior,” says Brahma Chellaney, an analyst at New Delhi’s Center for Policy Research and author of the forthcoming “Water: Asia’s New Battlefield.”

Bike friendly A pair of recent workshops have explored what can be done to further the “no new trips” agenda laid out in City Hall’s recently updated land use and circulation element. Making it easier for bike riders to navigate the city was a major concern during these meetings.

Analyst Neil Padukone calls it “the biggest potential point of contention between the two Asian giants,” China and India. But the stakes may be even higher since those eight Tibetan rivers serve a vast west-east arc of 1.8 billion people stretching from Pakistan to Vietnam’s Mekong river delta. Suspicions are heightened by Beijing’s lack of transparency and refusal to share most hydrological and other data. Only China, along with Turkey, has refused to sign a key 1997 U.N. convention on transnational rivers. Beijing gave no notice when it began building three dams on the Mekong — the first completed in 1993 — or the $1.2 billion Zangmu dam, the first on the mainstream of the 2,880-kilometer (1,790-mile) Brahmaputra which was started last November and hailed in official media as “a landmark priority project.” The 2000 flood that hit Sarkar’s village, is widely believed to have been caused by the burst of an earthen dam wall on a Brahmaputra tributary. But China has kept silent. “Until today, the Indian government has no clue about what happened,” says Ravindranath, who heads the Rural Volunteer Center. He uses only one name. Tibet’s spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, has also warned of looming dangers stemming from the Tibetan plateau. “It’s something very, very essential. So, since millions of Indians use water coming from the Himalayan glaciers... I think you (India) should express more serious concern. This is nothing to do with politics, just everybody’s interests, including Chinese people,” he said in New Delhi last month. Beijing normally counters such censure by pointing out that the bulk of water from the Tibetan rivers springs from downstream tributaries, with only 13-16 percent originating in China. Officials also say that the dams can benefit their neighbors, easing droughts and floods by regulating flow, and that hydroelectric power reduces China’s carbon footprint. China “will fully consider impacts to downstream countries,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu recently told The Associated Press. “We have clarified several times that the dam being built on the Brahmaputra River has a small storage capacity. It will not have large impact on water flow or the ecological environment of downstream.” For some of China’s neighbors, the problem is that they too are building controversial dams and may look hypocritical if they criticize China too loudly.

AIR QUALITY ACROSS THE UNITED

www.SantaMonicaMiniStorage.com

States has improved dramatically since 1970 when Congress passed the Clean Air Act in response to growing pollution problems and fouled air from coast to coast. According to data from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), levels of all major air pollution contaminants (ozone, nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, particulate matter and lead) are down significantly since 1970; carbon monoxide levels alone dropped by more than 70 percent. And that’s good news for everyone. A 2009 study published in the New England Journal of Medicine found that efforts to reduce fine particle pollution from automobiles, diesel engines, steel mills and coalfired power plants have added between four and eight months to the average American’s life expectancy in recent years. Overall, Americans are living some two and threequarter years longer than during the 1980s. Changes in smoking habits and improved socioeconomic conditions are the biggest reasons why, but cleaner air is also a big factor. “It’s stunning that the air pollution effect seems to be as robust as it is,” Arden Pope, the Brigham Young University epidemiologist who led the study, told reporters. Pope and his team analyzed life expectancy, economic, demographic and pollution data from 51 metropolitan areas, and found that when fine-particle air pollution dropped by 10 micrograms per cubic meter, life expectancy rose by 31 weeks — such as in Akron, Ohio and Philadelphia. Where fine particle counts dropped even more — by 13 to 14 micrograms, such as in New York City, Buffalo and Pittsburgh — people lived some 43 weeks longer on average. But according to the American Lung Association (ALA), even though air quality around the country is improving overall, some 175 million Americans — 58 percent of the population — still live in places where pollution levels can cause breathing difficulties or worse. The group’s “State of the Air: 2010” report looks at levels of ozone and particle pollution found in monitoring sites across the United States in 2006, 2007, and 2008, and compares them to previous periods. The biggest improvement was found in year-round (annual) particulate levels, which the ALA attributes to recent efforts to clean up major industrial air pollution sources. “However, the continuing problem demonstrates that more remains to be done,

RISK IN THE AIR: Air quality across the United States has improved dramatically since 1970 when Congress passed the Clean Air Act. Nonetheless, some 175 million Americans — 58 percent of the population — still live in places where pollution levels can cause breathing difficulties or worse.

especially in cleaning up coal-fired power plants and existing diesel engines.” the group reports. ALA also found, by overlaying census data with pollution maps, that Americans with the lowest incomes face higher risks of harm from air pollution, underscoring what environmental justice advocates have been saying for years. As for how to protect ourselves from still problematic air pollution, ALA recommends checking air quality forecasts and avoiding exercising or working outdoors when unhealthy air is present. The federal government’s AirNow website provides daily air quality updates for more than 300 cities across the U.S., as well as links to more detailed state and local air quality web sites. And if air quality problems in your area continue to be bothersome, consider picking up and moving. Fargo, North Dakota or Lincoln, Nebraska, anyone? According to ALA’s “State of the Air: 2010” report, these two cities rank among the cleanest in all of the air pollution categories studied.

Climate change case headed to Supreme Court MARK SHERMAN Associated Press

WASHINGTON The Obama administration and environmental interests generally agree that global warming is a threat that must be dealt with. But they’re on opposite sides of a Supreme Court case over the ability of states and groups such as the Audubon Society that want to sue large electric utilities and force power plants in 20 states to cut their emissions. The administration is siding with American Electric Power Co. and three other companies in urging the high court to throw out the lawsuit on grounds the Environmental Protection Agency, not a federal court, is the proper authority to make rules about climate change. The justices will hear arguments in the case Tuesday. The court is taking up a climate change case for the second time in four years. In 2007, the court declared that carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases are air pollutants under the Clean Air Act. By a 5-4 vote, the justices said the EPA has the authority to regulate those emissions from new cars and trucks under that landmark law. The same reasoning applies to power plants. The administration says one reason to end the current suit is that the EPA is considering rules that would reduce carbon dioxide emissions from power plants. But the administration also acknowledges that it is not certain that limits will be imposed. At the same time, Republicans in Congress are leading an effort to strip the EPA of its power to regulate greenhouse gases. The uncertainty about legislation and regulation is the best reason for allowing the case to proceed, said David Doniger, a lawyer for the Natural Resources Defense Council, which represents Audubon and other private groups dedicated to land conservation. “This case was always the ultimate backstop,” Doniger said, even as he noted that the

council would prefer legislation or EPA regulation to court decisions. The suit would end if the EPA does set emission standards for greenhouse gases, he said. The legal claims advanced by six states, New York City and the land trusts would be pressed only “if all else failed,” he said. When the suit was filed in 2004, it looked like the only way to force action on global warming. The Bush administration and the Republicans in charge of Congress doubted the EPA’s authority to regulate greenhouse gases. Federal courts long have been active in disputes over pollution. But those cases typically have involved a power plant or sewage treatment plant that was causing some identifiable harm to people, and property downwind or downstream of the polluting plant. Global warming, by its very name, suggests a more complex problem. The power companies argue that any solution must be comprehensive. No court-ordered change alone would have any effect on climate change, the companies say. "This is an issue that is of worldwide nature and causation. It’s the result of hundreds of years of emissions all over the world,” said Ed Comer, vice president and general counsel of the Edison Electric Institute, an industry trade group. The other defendants in the suit are Cinergy Co., now part of Duke Energy Corp. of North Carolina; Southern Co. Inc. of Georgia; Xcel Energy Inc. of Minnesota; and the federal Tennessee Valley Authority. The TVA is represented by the government and its views do not precisely align with those of other companies. Eight states initially banded together to sue. They were California, Connecticut, Iowa, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, Vermont and Wisconsin. But in a sign of the enduring role of partisan politics in this issue, New Jersey and Wisconsin withdrew this year after Republican replaced Democrats in their governor’s offices.

Agencies plan suit over sucker fish habitat GILLIAN FLACCUS Associated Press

SANTA ANA Twelve Southern California water agencies said Tuesday they have taken the first step to sue the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service over a ruling that would expand protections for the threatened Santa Ana sucker fish but could reduce future water supplies for residents in the region. The ruling, which went into effect in January, adds 1,026 acres to the fish’s habitat, bringing the total protected area to more than 10,000 acres. The federal agency expanded the habitat for the small brownand-black mottled fish after an environmental organization sued in 2005, alleging the fish was not protected in its namesake river, the Santa Ana River. The legal notice, filed Monday, gives the federal agency 60 days to respond before a lawsuit is filed. Jane Hendron, a spokeswoman for the Fish and Wildlife Service’s Carlsbad office, did not immediately return a call or e-mail seeking comment. The habitat designation does not mean any human water supplies will be shut off or altered, but it does mean that local water districts and cities must consult with the Fish and Wildlife Service before doing work on

any new or existing water projects with any federal involvement and could face stricter limits on what they can do. The expanded habitat includes upstream areas that have no sucker fish living in them now — and that sometimes dry up entirely — because those areas hold the gravel that is critical for the fish’s survival, said Ileene Anderson, a biologist with Center for Biological Diversity, the group that sued in 2005. That gravel needs to be washed downstream to help the fish, she said. "The whole reason is to identify areas that may not have any animals in them anymore, but historically did. The critical habitat looks at recovery opportunities as well, rather than just keeping them on life support,” Anderson said of the fish. The water agencies that filed the notice said Tuesday they were most concerned that they would be required to use water that currently goes to residents in Riverside and San Bernardino counties to push gravel downstream to areas where the creatures reproduce. That could mean diverting water that could supply more than 500,000 people and impact the water supply for about 3 million residents who live downstream, said Douglas Headrick, general manager of the San Bernardino Valley Municipal Water District’s sucker fish task force.

church across the road from the chocolate waters of Bayou Lafourche, the Rev. Joseph Anthony Pereira unbuttons his collar as the last parishioners pull out of the lot. Tonight, nearly a year after the BP oil spill began, he’s asked his congregation of shrimpers and oil industry workers to think about lessons learned when survival is in jeopardy. But Pereira doubts many from the 5 p.m. Mass are ready to take his Lenten message to heart. “You speak about this to them because they forget what they went through,” says Pereira, who pastors at St. Joseph’s Church in Galliano, La., a community that ties its fortunes to the Gulf of Mexico. “Because BP has spoiled them, given them all this money, they’ve gone back to the old ways. They give them big bucks and they forget.” A year after BP’s Deepwater Horizon rig exploded, killing 11 and triggering a fourmonth battle to cap the gusher, the people who make their lives along the Gulf coastline face countless variations of the trade-off that troubles Pereira. They are anxious to banish the spill to memory. But that is very different from being ready to forgive. They are proud to call themselves independent, yet unsettled to be relying on a company and government many distrust. They want nothing more than for their home places to go back to the way they used to be, and in some of the most visible ways, they have. But uncertainty lingers, and anger, too. What might be hidden under the waves? When, if ever, can people so tied to the water be made whole? As the anniversary of the spill approached, an Associated Press reporter traveled more than 600 miles along the Gulf Coast, from Louisiana’s bayous to the beaches of the Florida Panhandle, through many twists and turns in the region’s ever-evolving state of mind. At every milepost, there were reminders of the region’s bounty and its resilience. People, voicing faith in the Gulf ’s power, are eager to tell anyone who will listen that that their seafood is safe to eat, that tourists are returning, that the crisis was overblown — that they will not be bowed. If only, some say more quietly, it was that simple. At dawn, the sky south of New Orleans is fringed with violet and pockets of thick fog mix with the odor from Chevron’s Oronite fuel additives plant. But another 14 miles down Louisiana Highway 23, the sun breaks through and Mark Brockhoeft motors into a marshland that is its own world. Mottled ducks erupt from the high grass. Redfish slice the water like torpedoes. Brockhoeft has plied this bayou as a fly fishing guide since 1993. But the familiar scene still kindles a smile. “You can take it for granted,” he says. “We did. Until we were about to lose it.” Before the spill was capped, thick slicks moved into Barataria Bay, about 10 miles south. The oil was the last in a series of setbacks for Brockhoeft, who before the last two recessions and Hurricane Katrina, worked on the water 250 days a year. When BP flooded the region with money, he hired out his boat for the cleanup for $1,560 a day. Meanwhile, he sent back customers’ deposits and talked with friends about moving. Crews kept the oil at bay long enough to keep these backwaters open to fishing and to cap the well. Now, when clients call to ask, Brockhoeft assures them that “it’s beautiful. Come on down.”

But the guide says he’ll be glad this year to get bookings for more than 130 days on the water. And, while he’s upbeat about the health of the estuary, he watches for signs oil and dispersant might eventually filter into a world that sees fish and other wildlife migrate between bayou and Gulf. “I wouldn’t bank on the way things are going to be five years from now,” he says. “We might not even be here.” Across the Mississippi River in Pointe a La Hache, oysterman Stanley Encalade is more certain of the spill’s toll. Encalade and others say they are barely hanging on after officials flooded shellfishing grounds with river water to keep out the oil, but killing oysters. Before Katrina, Encalade says he made about $50,000 a year. But BP payments are based on the most recent years’ business, when he was climbing out of hurricaneinduced debt. So far, he’s gotten a $12,000 check from the compensation fund set up for those whose livelihoods were affected by the spill. Encalade worries it could be years before the oyster come back. So he’s refitting his boat, Lady Pamela, with shrimping nets. But that is not a long-term answer. “You’re going to put me out of business for five or six years and you’re going to pay me for the worst two years of my life? No man, I don’t think so,” Encalade says. “It’s not over by a longshot.” At Gulfport, Miss. the next morning, Susan Joseph is out on the sand for sunrise, a devotion from Micah 6:8 ("O people, the Lord has told you what is good...") on her smartphone. Joseph, from Prosper, Texas, is here to see her newborn grandchild, returning to the area where she spent childhood summers, at her grandmother’s house a block from the beach. “I have a strong faith in God and I’m just really thankful he spared this area because it really is coming back,” Joseph says. “It’s just kind of sweet to know that in a few years I’ll be able to bring my granddaughter out here and play with her and tell her the stories.” The stories Melvin and Christy Barnes’ five daughters are hearing, though, are very different. In 2004, the couple — she’s a former Allstate agent, he was a boiler operator — used retirement savings to buy a seafood restaurant and market in Bay St. Louis, Miss. Katrina put the restaurant, Cuz’s, under more than 20 feet of water. The Barneses rebuilt and business was good enough that they employed 22. But the spill closed waters that supplied much of the catch sold in the market. Customers stayed away from the restaurant, too, repulsed by the idea of eating Gulf seafood. Christy says they’ve lost “an easy half a million” in sales. The business now employs six — its owners included. When Kenneth Feinberg, the lawyer supervising the BP spill compensation fund, met local business owners at the American Legion post in January, Melvin Barnes unloaded. Fund workers had lost his claim twice. They didn’t seem to understand he was barely making it. “One of the guys (from the compensation fund) got on the phone, he says, ‘Well Cuz, it’s not costing you as much to operate,’” Melvin Barnes recalls. “I said, ‘Are you kidding me?’” The Barneses have talked about closing and reopening inland, but doubt there would be as many customers for a seafood place. So they wait for an interim compensation offer to arrive. "It’s going to be all right,” Melvin says, SEE SPILL PAGE 9

FROM PAGE 8 sounding anything but convinced. “I want to stay positive. Negative attracts negative. But we’re doing OK. Each day gets better. Today wasn’t a good day, but ...” The uncertainties facing the Barneses are very different from the ones occupying minds down the coast at The Institute for Marine Mammal Studies in Gulfport. Inside a white vinyl Quonset hut, workers huddle over tanks, tending to 50 sea turtles hooked accidentally in Mississippi Sound last spring and summer. Another 300 turtles washed up dead. In a normal year, the institute might take in two or three. But after months of observation, the institute’s staff can only guess about possible connections between the strandings and spill, theorizing that the turtles swam in to escape the oil, or were chasing fish that were trying to escape. “It’s a little tricky. You see changes. You make observations. But sometimes you don’t necessarily know what caused it,” research assistant Megan Broadway says. “It’s really a long-term process. It’s not like next week you’ll have answers.” By afternoon, we’re heading down twolane highway 88 to Bayou La Batre, “the seafood capital of Alabama.” Stan Wright has been mayor of this community of fishermen, shipbuilders, and shrimp and oyster processors for 11 years. Once, he split his time between the elected post and running his family’s oyster business. But it’s been closed since last May, when the spill choked off supply. “What happens with a hurricane is when the wind stops blowing, we start rebuilding,” says Wright, who wears blue mechanic’s clothes to city hall and owns a pickup with an “OYSTERS” license plate. “But we don’t know when the wind’s going to quit blowing with the oil spill.” This confounds Wright, who used to consider himself expert at marshaling forces and working the system for aid. After Katrina, he turned his house into a command center. The town used aid dollars to buy 74 acres on high land and build 100 houses for residents who lost theirs to the storm. Since the spill, Bayou La Batre — which has a population of 2,800 — has filmed its own television commercial, promising its seafood is safe. But mayor and town remain hamstrung. Wright turns his pickup on to Shell Belt Road, pointing out the seafood plants shut by the spill. His spirits are buoyed when he pulls up alongside Dominick Ficarino, who tells how his shrimp processing business is up and thriving, promising customers its product can pass any test. “Boy, I need you to get you some pompoms. You could be my cheerleader,” the mayor tells him. But the feeling doesn’t last. Wright, who

has been oystering for 48 of his 54 years, misses getting up at 4 a.m. to go to the family plant on Faith Street. And while he’s financially secure, he’s doesn’t know how long many of his town’s people can stay sidelined. “People live here because they’ve got a job here. It’s not because they love it here. It’s because they work here and this is their life,” he says. “It’s hard to know what to tell them.” The sign proclaims our arrival at the “world’s whitest beaches.” And a year after Pensacola Beach, Fla., was licked by the oil, the sand looks like sugar under a crystal sky. At the Paradise Inn, a 55-room, tangerine-and-coral-hued motel, manager John Turk is busy sorting through reservations, but hasn’t forgotten last year. “Boy, it just killed us to see that oil,” Turk says. “You could open the patio door of the house and smell it.” Two years ago, he and his wife shelved their lives in Chicago to follow a dream and move down for a life of beach walks and kayaking. At the height of the spill, Turk’s wife worried the school where she teaches might be closed to protect children from the fumes. In the hotel, with most rooms going begging, Turk watched endless news of the oil on the TV in the lobby. Now, he marvels at how quickly the spill was capped, although he remains disappointed in the federal government’s supervision of oil exploration. “I can’t believe they let somebody go down that deep, 5,000 feet, and there weren’t five or six backups,” he says. “Mother Nature was very forgiving. But one of these days, she’s not going to be.” On this sun-filled afternoon, though, the allure that has drawn people to Florida’s waters since the days of Ponce De Leon remains intact. Down U.S. 98, it has made a believer of Steve DeNeef, unpacking supplies for his new scuba diving shop. Late last year, DeNeef learned his scuba store in Oceanside, Calif., was losing its lease. About that time, his wife, Amy, flew east to see their son, an Army helicopter pilot soon to leave for Afghanistan. She drove down to walk the beaches and called to report water so clear she could see the bottom. DeNeef was intrigued. He remembered how, on a trip to New Orleans months after Katrina, he’d been amazed to find Bourbon Street rollicking. So he visited Florida, too, taking note of crews in Hazmat suits “trying to find oil,” although he didn’t see any. “That didn’t scare us. It’s like stuff comes, stuff goes,” he says. Now, a year after the spill’s start, DeNeef ’s 27-foot Sea Ray is parked out back, testament to faith in the Gulf ’s resilience. Soon, the first customers will come in with questions about the waters that are this region’s greatest treasure. And DeNeef knows just what to tell them. “Hey, I just got here,” he’ll say. “Let’s go experience it together.”

Under the Department of Labor’s Senior Community Service Employment Program, more than 75,000 elderly Americans living in poverty in all 50 states earn their keep by the slimmest of margins. To qualify, participants must be over 55 and earning less than 125 percent of the federal poverty level — $13,600 a year. In the budget bill signed Friday by President Barack Obama, the program was slashed by 45 percent, from $825 million to $450 million a year. Advocates say it could mean as many as 58,000 fewer jobs if states or national groups are forced to discontinue the program because of the reductions.

Even after pilots certify, which can take over a year in itself, they must fly with an instructor minimally every two years to maintain their certification. Different kinds of airplanes, or different kinds of flight techniques, including flying in clouds or using instruments, require whole new certifications with additional training procedures.

"It’s harder for people my age who are on our own,” said Calderon, in Spanish, clutching the green Starbucks apron she wears to clean. “Unfortunately, other employment opportunities are very hard to find for people my age.” In a bad economy where jobs are hard to come by for young, qualified workers, seniors face serious problems finding gainful employment. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, older workers who have lost a job are more likely than any other age group to face very long-term unemployment and remain jobless for 99 weeks or more. But the budget situation is dire, with the federal government borrowing 43 cents for every dollar it spends, which will lead to economic catastrophe unless federal spending is drastically cut, according Brian Riedl, research fellow in federal budget policy at the Heritage Foundation, a research institute that aims to promote conservative principles. His organization has recommended terminating the program entirely.

FROM PAGE 1 facilities. It is currently housed in the Boys & Girls Club. Concord High was located in an office building on Wilshire Boulevard, but when former director Susan Packer-DavisHille fell behind on rent, the landlord filed for eviction. Packer-Davis-Hille resigned, along with her husband, Eric Hille, and left three parents to deal with the aftermath. The newly formed board of directors of Concord High said they had no choice but to file for bankruptcy after pouring over the school’s finances, finding questionable expenditures made by PackerDavis-Hille. Classes were cancelled. The school is suing the former director, her husband and son for allegedly misusing more than $1 million in school funds. Concord High, which was founded in 1973 by Packer-Davis-Hille’s mother and which had a reputation for helping troubled teens go on to Ivy League schools, is operating in name only so that students can receive transcripts. While rocked by the school’s closure and alleged mismanagement by Packer-DavisHille, parents and teachers have rallied and created a new school that students are fiercely defending as a haven of supportive, successful learning. Teachers said they have solidified plans to continue Concord Prep at the Boys & Girls Club in the fall, and the administration is optimistic about next year’s enrollment. The administration, comprised of teachers from Concord High with hopes of carrying on its legacy, admits the bankruptcy shook up the faculty, but is confident that the resulting changes will be for the better. “I see that it was a sort of monarchy where [Packer-Davis-Hille] knew who to keep happy and how happy to keep them as to not cause questions or concerns to surface,” said Max Duganne, director of finance, and a math and social science teacher, “The fact of the matter was that the school was too successful and people were generally too happy to question anything. “With a background now in corporate finance, I can see that there were no checks and balances and no real business plans to govern a well functioning business.” These things have already been addressed with Concord Prep, said Duganne. “There is no longer one person filling the roles of head of school, admissions, operations, and the board. We have different people for all of those roles as to better perfect and specialize. We also have moved away from a system of financial aid where special deals are made for subjective reasons and now use a more objective system along with the majority of private schools” Other changes include the creation of an endowment and a focus on fundraising, aspects that were never on Packer-DavisHille’s radar, Duganne said. The viability of Concord Prep, though initially unsteady, has impressed parents and students.

“When Susan was at the helm there was no communication, community or involvement,” said Debbie Mahdessian, whose son is in his second year at Concord. “The change has allowed a community to form. I have developed close friendships, and a sense of being a part of a community that is unique and is worth fighting for.” Students say that while the location shift was abrupt and the class size reduced, they are loyal to the school for the education it provides. “I am amazed at how the teachers have been able to make the transition seem so seamless, and have continued to provided the exact same level of academics at the old Concord despite the turmoil of this year,” said Miwa Sakamoto, who praises the school’s focus on traditional academics and personal responsibility. “The teachers are there to teach and to help when things don’t make sense but they are not there to simply hold our hands and do most of the load,” said Sakamoto. “I feel that concord is one of the few places that truly prepares young adults for the reality waiting beyond high school.” Parents and students emphasized how unique the school is in providing a traditional academic focus while fostering close relationships between teachers and their classes, which are usually comprised of only five to 10 students. “One of the parents remarked to me that families often have a difficult time connecting with their children in the teenage years,” said Head of School and English teacher Andrew Taylor, “but our teachers seem to have a special knack for it. We get through to them, revive their interest in learning, and instill a sense of ambition again, which can go adrift in middle school.” Sakamoto recalled how her history teacher made learning exciting through her passion and enthusiasm for each lesson. “She is able to make these 100-year-old facts into exciting stories that will be forever in my head,” she said. Marissa DeSiena, who is now vice principal and director of admissions, and who also teaches history, reported that 100 percent of this year’s graduating class was admitted to four-year universities, among them UCLA, Berkeley, John Hopkins University, University of Chicago, Skidmore, and University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. “I think that many people are not aware of just how successful we are,” said DeSiena. DeSiena is now coordinating admissions for a summer school session, and hopes that enrollment in the fall will grow to 60 students, now that the price of tuition at the school has dropped significantly — from $29,000 a year to $17,000. Teachers have foregone benefits for the upcoming year to keep costs at a minimum, and the schools operating budget has shrunk to $650,000, just enough to pay rent and teacher salaries. “We never gave up,” said DeSiena. “Our hearts and souls are in this school.“ news@smdp.com

AUTO RACING

Conway comes back to win at Long Beach JOHN MARSHALL

by one of the most frightening crashes in Indianapolis 500 history. Colliding with future teammate Ryan Hunter-Reay, Conway’s car went hurtling through the air and smashed into barrier,leaving him with multiple fractures in his lower left leg and a compression fracture in his back. Never doubting he’d return, Conway went through a grueling rehabilitation with an eye at returning before the 2010 season ended. He was still on crutches in August, though, and never made it back. Racing for Andretti Autosport this season, Conway had an uneven return, finishing 23rd in the season opener at St. Petersburg, 22nd at Alabama last week. Once he got to California, everything seemed to fall in place. The 27-year-old English driver started third after a surprisingly-good qualifying session and was able to hang with the leaders on the 11-turn, 1.968-mile circuit through the streets of downtown Long Beach while avoiding the multiple late-race crashes. Charging out of a final caution, he whipped past two-time defending series champion Dario Franchitti and Briscoe with 14 laps left, then extended his lead from there, up 6 seconds on the final lap before taking the checkers.

LONG BEACH His left leg broken in pieces, his back fractured as well, Mike Conway wanted to know just one thing after his horrific crash at the Indianapolis 500: When can a get back behind the wheel? Once he wrapped his mind around the reality of a long layoff, Conway went about fixing his body. His nearly yearlong recovery complete, Conway earned his first career IndyCar victory in impressive fashion, zipping past Ryan Briscoe late to win the Grand Prix of Long Beach on Sunday in just his third race since that bone-breaking crash at Indy. “As soon as it happened, I wanted to know what the timeframe was until I could get back into the car,” Conway said. “I was kind of over it, really, and the physical things just kind of take time. It was a long offseason, but there was a lot to keep my mind on and when I got a chance to get back into the car, I was ready.” It was questionable whether he’d get the chance when the wreck happened. Driving for Dreyer & Reinbold, Conway saw his future become shrouded in a cloud of smoke

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS The stars show the kind of day you’ll have: ★★★★★Dynamic ★★ So-So ★★★★ Positive ★ Difficult ★★★ Average

This year, you might act, only to wonder later if there was a more effective path. Consider taming your innate enthusiasm. Taking your time to act on key decisions can only help, but it will demand unusual self-discipline. If you are single, you want what you want. Of course it is good to know what you want, but perhaps you could be stomping on a valid tie. If you are attached, realize the impact of your unusual strength this year.

GETTING STARTED

SOLUTIONS TO YESTERDAY’S PUZZLE

There are many strategies to solving Sudoku. One way to begin is to examine each 3x3 grid and figure out which numbers are missing. Then, based on the other numbers in the row and column of each blank cell, find which of the missing numbers will work. Eliminating numbers will eventually lead you to the answer.

■ Laney Wallace, 16, won the beauty contest at the 53rd Rattlesnake Roundup in Sweetwater, Texas, in March and the next day fulfilled the first duty of her reign: to behead and skin a western diamondback. "You have to make sure you don't pop the bladder," the 2011 Miss Snake Charmer said shortly after taking a few swipes with a machete. "That (would be) a huge mess." (Three years ago, News of the Weird informed readers of the annual beautycontest/muskrat-skinning festival in Maryland's Eastern Shore region, in which the "beauty" part and the "skinning" part are separate -- but in which that year, two teenage girls entered both, with Dakota Abbott edging out Samantha Phillips for the crown.) ■ Record companies have enjoyed recent successes in court by suing individuals who have shared music by trading files through specialized websites that avoid paying copyright licensing fees, including Lime Wire (which shut down last year). Thirteen record companies won a summary judgment last year, and, applying a formula they believe was set out in federal law, the companies demanded that Lime Wire pay damages of up to $75 trillion -- an amount more than five times the entire national debt. In March 2011, a federal judge said the companies should modify the formula and lower their expectations.

TODAY IN HISTORY • Fill the grid with the set of given numbers (1 to 12) to satisfy the Equa demands (7 to 24) in the shaded boxes. The Equa demands represent the sum of the digits that you will insert into the empty squares. • Each horizontal row has one Equa demand to satisfy; each vertical column also has one demand to satisfy. Each empty square in the grid dictates the math operation (addition +, subtraction -, multiplication X, and division ÷) that must be performed to meet the demands. • You must follow the given math operations for each square and you must make sure all the numbers satisfy the demands in the shaded boxes when connected in adjacent threes and calculated together from left to right, and top to bottom. • The numbers you insert into the grid must satisfy the Equa demands both horizontally and vertically.
