SEASIDE HERO: Peter Wallerstein has based his sea mammal rescue operation at Dockweiler State Beach in Playa del Rey. The City of Santa Monica is one of his earliest clients.

Wallerstein is savior of the sea BY MELODY HANATANI Daily Press Staff Writer

SANTA MONICA BEACH Conducting interviews and photo sessions with the ever so elusive Peter Wallerstein is no easy task. An hour before a 9 a.m. scheduled interview with the Daily Press on Wednesday, the forever animal lover had to cancel as he was called to an impromptu press conference at the Bird Center in San Pedro. Wallerstein’s presence was requested to present footage of a rescue he conducted the day before on Santa Monica Beach of a pregnant sea lion suffering from domoic acid. Caused by an algae bloom, domoic acid accumulates in fish at a high level and is eventually passed on to its predators,

including sea lions. As a result of consuming the infected fish, sea lions often experience seizures as legions appear on their brain. The victim lying on Santa Monica Beach on Tuesday was suffering similar neurological effects from the domoic acid. Following the press conference, Wallerstein zooms back to his headquarters in an RV park on Dockweiler Beach, in time for a noon interview, but his ear close to a cell phone, which could ring at any time with another sea animal rescue call. Averaging six to eight calls a day, such is the life for the founder of the Whale Rescue Team, which has saved thousands of marine mammals up and down the Santa Monica Bay over the past 22 years. Born and raised in Norwalk, Conn., Wallerstein left his home immediately after high school, spending years VONS

soul searching as he traveled the world, living in a small log cabin in an isolated area of the mountains of New Hampshire, creating his own habitat in the islands of the West Indies and the Caribbean before packing his bags and heading out to California. “I wanted to lead a meaningful life,” said Wallerstein, 55, of Playa del Rey. “I didn’t want to just settle for a job I would be bored with after 20 to 30 years and feel like I missed out on something in my life.” If it’s one thing Wallerstein was certain, it was his love for nature, animals and respect for all life. He became an ethical vegetarian 30 years ago, which led to becoming a vegan 25 years ago. SEE CP PAGE 11

Just a drop of nostalgia Main Library hosts tea party for moms and their daughters BY ALISON TULLY Special to the Daily Press

Tea parties always seem to bring the nostalgia out of everybody. “My Grandfather used to pour tea in his ear at tea parties,” 6-year-old Teagen Rosso said at the Main Library’s mother and daughter tea party on Saturday. “I think if he were watching right now, he would learn not to do that,” she added. Teagen and her mother Bri were just two of the many guests at the family-oriented event. Mothers and daughters sipped on raspberry tea poured into plastic teacups and munched on scones, cookies, and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. However, teatime did not officially begin until they learned a proper lesson in etiquette. “Now, do we always or never slosh, slush, or gargle our drinks?” Youth Services Librarian Shana Johnson asked. The question was part of an “Always or Never?” game to teach guests about table manners. Johnson also read “Peanut Butter Sandwich,” a poem by Shel Silverstein about a famous king whose jaws get shut after eating too much of his favorite snack. “Then one day he took a bite and started chewing with delight,” Johnson read from the classic collection of poetry for children. “But he found his mouth was stuck quite tight from that last bite of peanut-butter sandwich.” Not all guests worried about taking another bite. “Do your jaws really get stuck with peanut butter?” one little girl asked. “Because I think that’s just a fantasy story.” After reading the poem, Johnson concluded her lesson by telling the audience about the history of tea parties, a tradition that began in the 1800s in England. “In the first tea parties, the cups didn’t have any handles on them,” Johnson said. “The water was so hot that you wanted to keep as few fingers around it so people would hold up their pinky finger.” After this lesson, guests voted almost unanimously to hold their pinkies up for the SEE TEA PAGE 12

Coalition wants change New group is strongly in favor of proposed public finance law BY KEVIN HERRERA Daily Press Staff Writer

Tired of the “destructive” effect money is having on public policy, residents and community groups have formed a coalition to pressure City Hall into enacting campaign finance reform.

Those who cannot attend are urged to fill out an online survey on the city’s Web site. The coalition, which includes the city’s five major neighborhood groups, the Santa Monica Democratic Club and California Common Cause, formed in response to the large amount of money — around $400,000 — spent in the last election by special interest groups, and the City Council’s decision earlier this year not to approve a plan for public financing that would have made available as much as $100,000 for candidates who participated in the program, said Moira Brennan, a Santa Monica resident who

Barking up wrong tree

THE DEATH OF A 90-YEAR-OLD SANTA

Why pick on a do-gooder like L.A. City Councilman Bill Rosendahl when the real culprits are the Santa Monica City Council who fail to stand up for ALL people and DOGS! (”Someone should stick a muzzle on Rosendahl,” page 4, may 10) They have constantly worked against the residents in favor of Big BusinessThey spend money on "environmental" buses, parks etc... and turn their heads on the Airport. Its a major polluter! The new park was a ridiculous idea, just showing you what bad planners the City of Santa Monica is. Wake-Up and point the fingers at the real problem makers! The dog park should be for ALL dogs!

Monica resident in a traffic accident a few weeks ago is a reminder that driving and crossing streets are about the most dangerous things we can do. An elderly man crossing at the unmarked Idaho Avenue and Fourth Street intersection was hit and killed by a car just after 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 2. It appears that a parking placard hanging from the driver’s rear view mirror may have blocked the view and the possibility that the pedestrian didn’t look before crossing both may have contributed to the accident, said Santa Monica Police Lieutenant, Alex Padilla. I’m surprised there haven’t been a lot more people killed on our streets. Most of the time, neither pedestrians or motorists pay attention. Distracted or aggressive drivers are a constant threat to life when I’m on foot. When driving, clueless pedestrians step in front of my car — mid-block, at corners — it doesn’t matter whether they look or not. The rank stupidity and hostility demonstrated by pedestrian and motorist alike make you think you’ve seen everything until you see something even more outrageous. The most horrifying are the idiots who push children in strollers or drag toddlers into traffic without first checking to see what’s approaching. Couples, old ladies, old men, kids, and especially joggers walk or run in front of moving cars as if they weren’t there. The last thing on earth I’d do is put my life in a total stranger’s hands. We’ve seen motorists on cell phones, drinking coffee, putting on make-up, looking down at something inside their vehicle — all while driving a ton of rolling steel. That’s not the person I’d trust to stop when crossing the street. When I was a kid, I was told to look both directions and make sure that there are no moving vehicles nearby before crossing. To this day, I won’t step off the curb unless there’s at least a couple hundred feet of pavement between me and approaching vehicles or unless all cars have stopped. Making eye contact with the driver assures that he’s seen you — it doesn’t mean he’ll stop, though, By foolishly empowering pedestrians, the City of Santa Monica must take much of the blame for this dangerous situation. For years, City Hall and its politicians have conned pedestrians into thinking that because they have the legal right of way, drivers will automatically stop. It doesn’t always happen. That’s why people are maimed and killed. The human body is no match for a ton of speeding metal with a moron behind its wheel. Step off the curb and you’ll bet your

America is too gun crazy as it is Editor:

Your May 8 editorial (Guest Commentary: “Nobody seems to lend support to our troops,” page 5) endorsing less gun control in Washington D.C. ignores the fact that we have too many guns in circulation in the U.S. How many more massacres and daily killings do we need? America has the highest rate of death by gun than any country in the civilized world. Enough already.

Ruth Rosen Santa Monica

Throw the book at Paris Editor:

Re: Paris Hilton’s DUI When I was a Los Angeles County Probation officer II (1967-72) in Santa Monica, I told all people arrested for drunk driving, who landed in my caseload, that I would recommend the full maximum penalty be placed by the Court for a second such arrest. I would tell them that they might kill someone I love, or someone else loves, when driving intoxicated. And believe me, I followed through. Driving under the influence is manslaughter waiting to happen. All were treated the same, rich or not-so.

Flo Ginsburg Santa Monica

Cops must be smoking themselves Editor:

The officers on bikes on the Promenade don't seem to even notice all the smokers. They seem to resent being reminded about the ban. Most often they are busy talking to each other in groups of two and three, as they zip by smokers. So far it seems like the smoking ban is like the dog ban and smoking ban at the beaches. You can light up right in front of a staffed lifeguard stand with your dogs running free. No matter if all beach goers are dressed and there is no one in the water or even near the water as far as the eye can see, authorities will say "our primary role is life safety." After cell phone networking and exercising on duty? Seems no one on the payrolls of government agencies wants to be an enforcer of environmental policies.

Then, there are those well-meaning neighbors who demand more stop signs, traffic lights, speed bumps or lighted crosswalks when an accident happens. This even further lulls pedestrians into thinking that because signs or crosswalks are installed at an accident scene, it’s now safe to walk into traffic. City Manager. Lamont Ewell was correct in suggesting a citywide publicity campaign reminding folks to “cross with care,” We need to replace “Watch for pedestrians” with “Look both ways,”“Don’t cross until it’s safe” and "Warning: Rotten drivers and mindless pedestrians do stupid things.” The time is way overdue to reeducate pedestrians about the danger of challenging motorists by stepping in front of a moving vehicle and that they’ll live to joke with their friends about it. It’s also time to can the “pedestrians rule” crap before more people are injured and killed. If the city is to get serious about traffic safety, the hiring of additional traffic enforcement officers is an absolute must to rein in dangerous drivers and indifferent pedestrians. And while we’re at it, that goes double for most bicyclists who think that the rules of the road don’t apply to them. On average, about 75 percent of bicyclists I see when I’m out put themselves and others into grave danger by ignoring traffic signals and stop signs, riding on sidewalks or the wrong side of the street.

WHY WOULD OVER TWO HUNDRED

Santa Monica and Los Angeles residents spend a couple hours protesting on a sunny Saturday afternoon at the Santa Monica Airport (SMO) administration building to say ENOUGH of the air pollution, ENOUGH of the noise pollution and ENOUGH already with the lack of safety runoff areas at this used-to-be recreational airport? The residential-concerns wheel is beginning to squeak louder. There are some who ask why; a few say there are no pollution problems; one even accusing us of lying. Here are some facts that may clarify why residents are taking time from their weekend to protest. In 1984, a contract between the FAA and the City of Santa Monica was signed to respond to the concerns of local and national aviation interests and residents of neighborhoods affected by noise from the Airport. Anyone wishing to read the full text of this SANTA MONICA AIRPORT AGREEMENT can find it at www.jetairpollution.com. Since then, the nature of the airport has changed from a recreational airport to a mini LAX, yielding far greater noise impacts to the community as well as enormous air pollution. Add to this the concern that there are not sufficient runway safety areas for many of the larger aircraft using SMO. The growth of jet traffic from 1,000 to 18,000 annual operations is at the root of residential concerns. During this same period, piston aircraft operations have gone down 50 percent. You can do the math; jets up 1,800 percent, piston planes down 50 percent. There is also an increase in the percentage of the largest jets using SMO. For many years, residents as near as 250 feet from the ends of the runway have complained about the odor of jet kerosene replacing ocean breezes throughout their neighborhoods, inside their homes, and into the lungs of their family members, including their pets. The jet kerosene odors can be smelled for distances of over a mile from the ends of the runway affecting thousands of people. In 1999, a LAUSD health-risk study showed a significant increased cancer risk from just 10,000 annual jet operations. Since 1999 jet operations have doubled. The residents around SMO are extremely concerned about the health risks from breathing these emissions. Though jets account for only 15 percent of the total operations at SMO (in January

of 1999 jets were only 4 percent of the total operations), they are responsible for 90 percent of the noise violations. Again, easy math; almost all of the noise violations are from jets. The science suggests that a combination of noise and air pollution acerbates health risks. The agreement signed in 1984 failed not only to mitigate noise impacts to the communities; it did not address or even mention air pollution at all. Many large aircraft operating at SMO utilize the entire runway for take-offs and landings. The only separation between the runway and homes are highly-used roads. Considering this, it is unconscionable that the FAA does not weigh this into the equation when determining what they consider to be sufficient runway safety areas. Speaking of highly used roads, business office complexes on Colorado Boulevard and elsewhere in Santa Monica began to pop up shortly after 1984. Traffic to and from Santa Monica due to job growth skyrocketed as well. Because it is convenient to have a business located close to an airport, the entire Westside has been negatively affected by the change in the nature of SMO. Thankfully, we have the full support of L.A. Councilman Bill Rosendahl and California Assemblyman Ted Lieu as well as Congresswoman Jane Harman. With the opening of the new Airport Park, Santa Monica should make addressing these issues a top priority. Folks are tired of SM just passing the buck on to the FAA. What happens at meetings and demonstrations is important but more important is the community action between events. If you care and would like to help, sign up to be on our contact list at www.jetairpollution.com. I have received many e-mails and phone calls asking that the corporate executives, politicians, members of the entertainment industry, as well as professional athletes reflect for a moment on how they are impacting SMO neighborhoods. We ask for their understanding and sensitivity. After all, they have a moral obligation to help protect the health of the public and the environment. If we need to hold another demonstration, we want them to be there with us. MARTIN RUBIN lives in Sunset Park and is the director of Concerned Residents Against Airport Pollution.

A widower whose pregnant wife was swept into a Highland creek by floodwaters more than two years ago settled a wrongful death suit for $750,000. Daniel Martinez, 44, had sued the city of Highland, San Bernardino County, the East Valley Water District and two developers over the death of his wife, Maureen Martinez, 35, and their unborn child. The woman was swept into City Creek and killed. Martinez learned after the autopsy that his wife was pregnant with a girl. The lawsuit alleged the defendants were negligent when Base Line road’s crossing over City Creek was reopened to the public after it had flooded the day of her death. Maureen Martinez was caught in the Jan. 10, 2005, deluge that pushed her car into the creek and swallowed it before the 8-foot-high waters ripped her from a fence she was clutching and down the creek to her death. The settlement was finalized on April 26 in Superior Court, where trial was scheduled to begin next week. “It was a settlement that was satisfactory to all parties,” Martinez’s attorney said. The cost of litigation was cited by the city of Highland. “If this case had gone to trial we were probably looking at 30 to 40 days of trial,” the city’s lawyer Dennis Popka said. “This was an economic resolution to the matter.” Each defendant paid a portion of the $775,000 settlement: Highland paid $357,500, the county paid $357,500, the East Valley Water District and developer Standard Pacific Homes paid $25,000 and developer Rancho San Andreas/National Equity Engineering paid $10,000.

Annenberg Community Beach Club at Santa Monica State Beach The historic Marion Davies Estate and former location of the Sand & Sea Club will be rehabilitated into use as a public beach facility. The 5.5 acre project at Santa Monica State Beach will consist of rehabilitation of the historic pool and guest house and construction of new structures including an entry pavilion, pool house, event building, and public restroom building.

Civic Center parking structure Construction continues on a new 900 space Civic Center Public parking structure, located on Fourth Street next to the public safety facility. Construction will require the closure of Avenida Mazatlan and the Fourth Street sidewalk. One lane on southbound Fourth Street is subject to closure while work is occurring.

Big Blue Bus Transit Store Tenant improvements begin at the site of the Big Blue Bus Transit Store located at 223 Broadway. Improvements include a new building façade and construction rehabilitation. Construction is scheduled until August 2007.

Euclid Park Project Construction of a new public park. The project scope will consist of site grading and construction of a new play area (with swings and climbing apparatus), a new garden area, two small green lawn areas, three circular-shaped seating areas, and a trellis entry. Construction is projected until June 2007.

DANA POINT

Two teens arrested for setting off acid bombs Two teenagers were arrested for allegedly touching off three acid bombs that led to a lockdown at Dana Hills High School earlier this month. No one was hurt when the bombs went off around lunchtime on May 4 in the school’s student mall area. The bomb squad and hazardous materials team were called into to sweep the school, which was locked down for two hours. On Tuesday, a 14-year-old male student and a 15-year-old male student were arrested and booked on felony charges of exploding a destructive device. “Acid bombs are dangerous. I don’t know if it was a prank or what it was, but it was a bad one. We’re going to prosecute it as if it was a terrorist activity,” said Jim Amormino of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.

SANTA PAULA

Voters approve expansion of boundaries Voters overwhelmingly approved expansion of the city’s development boundaries to include rural Adams Canyon, where hundreds of homes are proposed. Developer-backed Measure A7 got 61 percent of the vote — 2,485 to 1,581 — cast in Tuesday’s special election. Measure A7 called for an amendment to the city’s general plan to encompass the canyon. The city will now begin the process of annexing the canyon, which is in Ventura County. It was the third time voters were asked whether to allow development in the canyon. Both earlier efforts failed. Nearly 500 luxury homes, a golf course and a hotel are proposed for the Adams Canyon area. “It was a very strong victory for the project. It didn’t just creep by,” Vice Mayor John Procter said. Arizona’s Pinnacle Development Group joined with Arnold Dahlberg of San Diego County, owner of 4,700 acres of canyon property north of Santa Paula, to propose the project. AP

‘Fat maps’ reveal hidden dangers MARIA CHENG AP Medical Writer

LONDON If it really is what’s on the inside that counts, then a lot of thin people might be in trouble. Some doctors now think that the internal fat surrounding vital organs like the heart, liver or pancreas — invisible to the naked eye — could be as dangerous as the more obvious external fat that bulges underneath the skin. “Being thin doesn’t automatically mean you’re not fat,” said Dr. Jimmy Bell, a professor of molecular imaging at Imperial College, London. Since 1994,

Bell and his team have scanned nearly 800 people with MRI machines to create “fat maps” showing where people store fat. According to the data, people who maintain their weight through diet rather than exercise are likely to have major deposits of internal fat, even if they are otherwise slim. “The whole concept of being fat needs to be redefined,” said Bell, whose research is funded by Britain’s Medical Research Council. Without a clear warning signal — like a rounder middle — doctors worry that thin people may be lulled into falsely assuming that because they’re not overweight, they’re healthy. “Just because someone is lean doesn’t

make them immune to diabetes or other risk factors for heart disease,” said Dr. Louis Teichholz, chief of cardiology at Hackensack Hospital in New Jersey, who was not involved in Bell’s research. Even people with normal Body Mass Index scores — a standard obesity measure that divides your weight by the square of your height — can have surprising levels of fat deposits inside. Of the women scanned by Bell and his colleagues, as many as 45 percent of those with normal BMI scores (20 to 25) actually had excessive levels of internal fat. Among men, the percentage was nearly 60 percent.

Relating the news to what Bell calls “TOFIs” — people who are “thin outside, fat inside” — is rarely uneventful. “The thinner people are, the bigger the surprise,” he said, adding the researchers even found TOFIs among people who are professional models. According to Bell, people who are fat on the inside are essentially on the threshold of being obese. They eat too many fatty, sugary foods — and exercise too little to work it off — but they are not eating enough to actually be fat. Scientists believe we naturally accumulate fat around the belly first, but at some point, the body may start storing it elsewhere.

Pope Benedict XVI canonizes first native born Brazilian BY VICTOR L. SIMPSON Associated Press Writer

SAO PAULO, Brazil Pope Benedict XVI canonized an 18thcentury monk — a friar who handed out tiny rice-paper pills inscribed with a prayer — as Brazil’s first native-born saint Friday, as hundreds of thousands cheered and waved flags from all corners of South America. Holding up Friar Antonio de Sant’Anna Galvao as a model of rectitude and humility “in an age so full of hedonism,” Benedict said the world needs clear souls and pure minds, adding: “It is necessary to oppose those elements of the media that ridicule the sanctity of marriage and virginity before marriage.” It was a message that reflected Benedict’s uneasiness with the effects of popular culture on young people. Seated on a throne of Brazilian hardwood and surrounded by Latin American bishops and choirs of hundreds, Benedict

pronounced the sainthood of Galvao, the Franciscan monk who is credited by the church with 5,000 miracle cures. The canonization makes Galvao the first native-born saint from the world’s largest Roman Catholic country, home to more than 120 million of the planet’s 1.1 billion Catholics. “Do you realize how big this is?” asked Herminia Fernandes, who joined the multitude that jammed an airfield for the openair Mass. “It’s huge, this pope is visiting Brazil for the first time and at the same time he is giving us a saint. It’s a blessing.” Friar Galvao is the tenth saint Benedict has canonized, and the first such ceremony held outside Rome. It continues a push for saints in Latin America and elsewhere in the developing world that began under John Paul II, who sought role models as part of the church’s worldwide reach. John Paul canonized more saints than all of his predecessors combined. Galvao, who died in 1822, began a tradition among Brazilian Catholics of handing out tiny rice-paper pills,

inscribed with a Latin prayer, to people seeking cures for everything from cancer to kidney stones. Although doctors and even some Catholic clergy dismiss the pills as placebos or superstitious fakery, cloistered nuns still toil in the Sao Paulo monastery where Galvao is buried, preparing thousands of the Tic Tac-sized pills for free daily distribution. Each one carries these words: “After birth, the Virgin remained intact. Mother of God, intercede on our behalf.” After canonizing Galvao, the pope hugged Sandra Grossi de Almeida, 37, and her son Enzo, 7. She is one of two Brazilian women certified by the Vatican as divinely inspired miracles justifying the sainthood. She had a uterine malformation that should have made it impossible for her to carry a child for more than four months.

Consumer confidence stuck in rut BY JEANNINE AVERSA AP Economics Writer

WASHINGTON Consumer confidence was essentially stuck in a rut as worries about whether gasoline prices will move higher made people feel anxious about the economy’s prospects and their own financial positions. The RBC Cash Index found that confidence clocked in at 87.1 in May. The new figure hovered near April’s reading of 85.4, a six-month low. The index is based on the results from the international polling firm Ipsos. “Consumer confidence appears to be spinning its wheels,” observed Richard Yamarone, economist at Argus Research. “Although employment is mostly stable, there are many uncertainties on the horizon,” Yamarone said. “Will energy prices go even higher? How is the housing slump going to play out? It is the fear of the unknowns that is coloring peoples’ feelings.” Those fears were a factor in the big drop in peoples’ feelings about how the economy and their own finances will fare over the next six months. This expectations measure fell to 24.3, a nine-month low. In April, this gauge stood at 41.7. The report suggested that consumers had a bit of a split personality when it came to their feelings about the economy. On the one hand, consumers expressed angst about the

future. On the other, they felt better about the current economic situation. A measure tracking consumers’ sentiments on current conditions rose to 113.2 in May, up from 99 in April. Economists attributed this pickup to a mostly healthy — albeit slowing — jobs market and the recent string of record-high closings logged on Wall Street. “People are hanging in there. There’s a sense like things are OK for now but there seems to be a gnawing feeling — can it last?” said Stuart Hoffman, chief economist at PNC Financial Services Group. “People are a bit wary of how long either the economy or their own personal finances can hold up in the face of higher gasoline prices and a weaker housing market. But so far, it is more of a fear factor than a reality show,” Hoffman added. The fresh reading on consumer confidence came as President Bush continues to shoulder a low job-approval rating of 35 percent from the American public, according to a separate AP-Ipsos poll. On the economy, 41 percent approve of the president’s economic stewardship, while 56 percent disapprove, the poll shows. Consumers are a major force shaping overall economic activity. Economists keep close tabs on confidence barometers for clues about peoples’ willingness to spend. Economic growth slowed to a near crawl of a 1.3 percent

pace in the January-to-March quarter, the weakest showing in four years. The main culprit: the housing slump, which caused some businesses to cut back on their spending. Consumers showed resilience and managed to keep on spending, preventing the economy from losing even more speed. Analysts wonder how much of an appetite consumers will have in the face of surging gasoline prices. A fresh answer came Friday when the government reported that retail sales dropped 0.2 percent in April, a much weaker showing than economists were forecasting. One day earlier, big retailers also reported disappointing sales for April. The reports cast a dimmer light on the outlook for consumer spending in the months ahead. The weaker sales were blamed on shoppers having to shell out more to fill up their gas tanks, leaving them less to spend on other things. Gasoline prices climbed to $3.05 a gallon nationwide in early May, from $2.97 in late April, the Energy Department says. The reason why consumers have been holding up to the painful housing slump and gyrating energy prices has been because the job market has been strong. There have been recent signs, though, that it is weakening a bit. The government reported last week that the unemployment rate edged up to 4.5 percent as employers added just 88,000 new jobs during the month, the fewest in two and a half years. Growth in workers’ paychecks also slowed.

Alaska lawmakers approve pipeline inducement legislation BY STEVE QUINN Associated Press Writer

JUNEAU, Alaska Snubbing major oil companies, both houses of the Alaska Legislature on Friday approved a bill outlining the process under which companies will vie for the right to build a multibillion dollar natural gas project. The bill, called the Alaska Gasline Inducement Act or AGIA, will now go to a committee to work out differences in versions passed by the Senate and House. Under AGIA, producers and independent pipeline companies can vie for rights to build the pipeline that lawmakers hope will ship trillions of cubic feet of North Slope natural gas to market.

The bill is designed to stimulate competition through inducements, but also stipulates requirements, the administration calls “must haves.” However, BP PLC, Exxon Mobil Corp. and ConocoPhillips had warned they would not submit a bid unless stringent requirements were removed. Palin held firm, saying this week if lawmakers watered down her bill, she’d veto it. “This bill represents the direction the new governor wants to take in moving a natural gas pipeline forward,” said Rep. Mike Chenault, R-Nikiski, who served as co-chair of the House Finance Committee. Lawmakers understand the next move belongs to oil and pipeline companies and

whether they will submit a proposal. “There is risk in the project,” said Sen. Charlie Huggins, R-Wasilla. “It is a risk worth taking.” Palin has long warned that the state and the nation can’t afford to let those supplies — estimated at about 35 trillion cubic feet on the North Slope — sit untapped any longer. The bill continues to put distance between Palin’s ideas and a failed attempt to negotiate a deal with the North Slope producers by former Gov. Frank Murkowski. Murkowski reached an agreement in principle with BP PLC, Exxon Mobil Corp. and ConocoPhillips on fiscal terms for producing North Slope gas. It did not guarantee a pipeline would

get built, but the hope was it would enable producers to move forward with a pipeline from the North Slope through Canada and into the Midwest. The line would ultimately have delivered 4.5 billion cubic feet of natural gas a day, which is about 7 percent of the current U.S. demand. But state lawmakers felt the deal gave too many considerations to the big firms, including locking in tax rates for several decades. The Legislature never voted on the deal. The multibillion dollar pipeline has implications for North America’s long-term energy supply for heating homes and businesses. It also is considered to be a potential boon to the state’s economy, not unlike that of Prudhoe Bay’s oil production at its peak.

Technology is making food preparation easy BY J.M. HIRSCH AP Food Writer

CHICAGO Standing in a long line at the grocer soon might get you through the checkout faster. That’s because a British company has designed a system to track and predict the movements of supermarket shoppers using thermal imaging. A computer analyzes data from infrared cameras, then advises when and where additional cashiers are needed. “The idea is that the more pleasant the checkout experience, the more you will buy,” said Nick Stogdale, senior sales manager for InfraRed Integrated Systems’ SMARTLANE product. The system is being tested by two U.S. chains. The SMARTLANE was one of many new food-related technologies on display at the recent Food Marketing Institute show, where speed, ease, sanitation and a touch of theater ruled. Take the case of rotisserie chicken, one of the most popular items in the fast-growing prepared foods category: The latest crop of chicken roasters — those ubiquitous ovens that endlessly twirl crisp, golden chickens at grocers across the nation — are designed not just to cook, but also to capture your attention with good looks and funky design. Hence, the Multisserie, an upright, clear cylindrical oven by Netherlands-based FriJado that spins the chickens on end, like a giant top. “We try to bring a very high show element to it,” said marketing director Ernst Goettsch. The same thinking also influenced the design of Montreal-based Hardt’s Inferno Rotisserie, which offers a crowd-pleasing self-cleaning function that looks like a sprinkler gone wild. “The more a supermarket can do to create a show or to create a restaurant-style experience, the more sales they make,” said Michael Griffin, a vice president of sales for Hardt. For those who prefer their food slightly pixelated, food industry analyst Phil Lempert has teamed with Kraft Foods and the National Grocers Association to launch a virtual supermarket in the online fantasy world known as Second Life. Though visitors to Phil’s Supermarket can’t actually buy groceries, they can guide

their avatars (online parlance for a user’s digital personification) through the store to explore products, watch cooking demos and see the latest food and health news. The idea is to help people navigate the real world of food by letting them “preshop,” accessing nutritional data and other information on various products, previewing a showcase of just-launched items or scoring coupons. “The average consumer only spends 22 minutes food shopping,” said Lempert, who launched the site at the show. “That’s not a whole lot of time to see new products. But what I hear from consumers is that they want to hear about what’s new and exciting.” Lempert expects to have 100,000 products on the site by the end of summer. Visitors can “taste” many of the products, then offer reviews. How meaningful those reviews are, of course, depend on whether users have tried the product in the analog world. Beyond wanting to know more about their food, consumers also want to know more about its safety. On display were products such as G & K Services’ line of ProSura clothing. Intended for food service workers such as meat cutters and chefs, these clothes are like hand sanitizer you can wear. Though the clothing resembles the white cotton garments common to butcher shops and professional kitchens, ProSura products have chlorine chemically bonded to the fibers, which they company says kills microbes that touch them. G & K marketing manager Christine Fischer says that for many companies this level of sanitation probably isn’t necessary, but they see it as a way of demonstrating to customers that they are willing to spend extra to ensure the safety of their food. And spending on sanitation might be smart money. According to a recent Harris Poll Online released by FMI, just 66 percent of consumers feel at least somewhat confident in the safety of supermarket food, down from 82 percent in 2006. The food industry has been hit by a number of recent food safety problems, including E. coli in spinach and melamine contamination of pet food and animal feed, and FMI spokesman Bill Greer says the study reflects that.

Rick Bayless celebrates award BY J.M. HIRSCH AP Food Writer

CHICAGO At a time when mole was still a one-syllable word, Rick Bayless asked Americans to discard nacho cheese notions of Mexican food and consider his experience of it — street food at once simple and complex. Fresh from five years in Mexico, where the seasonal ingredients and nuanced flavors of traditional cooking had dazzled his palate, Bayless was confident American Mexican food could rise to that level of candid refinement. Twenty years on, he’s been proved right. On Monday, his Frontera Grill — where straightforward style belies sophisticated, layered flavors — was named the nation’s top restaurant by the James Beard Foundation. For Bayless, it signifies more than recognition of his own cooking. It speaks to the democratization of American food, which he says for too long treated Mexican food as a “downscale cuisine.” “It tells you that food in America is not just

one type of food, we embrace all kinds of cuisine,” he said, sitting in his restaurant’s eclectic bar the day after the award was announced. “Because we are a melting pot of a country, we can fuse upscale dining with all sorts of ethnic cuisines in ways you just don’t see elsewhere in the world,” Bayless said. Not that Frontera Grill is upscale, at least not by classic standards. Though sometimes gussied up for presentation, Bayless’ cooking strays little from the Mexican market foods that first inspired him two decades ago. “Our food is anything but stuffy,” he said. “When you serve goat empanadas, stuffy doesn’t work.” And Bayless’ food certainly works. Such as his ceviche yucateco, a mix of steamed calamari and shrimp bathed in citrus. It begins with a wave of cilantro that quickly mellows into lime and orange with lingering habenero. Or the Mexico City-style quesadilla, a delicate turnover and menu staple since Frontera Grill opened. Stuffed with locally made Jack cheese.

City Hall looking to hear public FROM CAMPAIGN PAGE 3 The meeting tonight was scheduled after the council decided to put public financing on hold so that they could get a response from residents about whether or not they felt it was necessary. While most council members supported the concept of “voter-owned elections” and the goal of limiting the influence special interest groups have on local contests, several council members expressed concern about the potential cost of such an endeavor, citing a city staff report that estimated a price tag of at least $1.8 million per election if 18 candidates were to participate in the voluntary program. That doesn’t include the cost of administering the program, which would include routine audits, the distribution of funds under strict guidelines, and monitoring expenditures made by both participating and non-participating candidates. “There are a lot of things that need to be flushed out, but I think it’s worth working with the public to come up with a community concept,” Mayor Pro Tem Herb Katz said during a debate in March. Under the proposal, candidates would have to raise $3,000 in qualifying contributions over three months to receive $50,000 in public money. Prospective candidates could raise

a minimum of $5 per person or a maximum of $30. Once certified, a candidate would receive $50,000 in public funds. Candidates may also receive an additional $50,000, which would be used to respond to non-participating candidates and special interests groups that have spent over $50,000.

OUR ELECTION SYSTEM IS TOO IMPORTANT TO BE LEFT TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER. WE WANT THE BEST, NOT THE BEST FUNDED.” Moira Brennan member of VOTE4SM

Questions still remain, such as would any resident be able to contribute to qualifying candidates, or only registered voters. Perhaps more importantly, how would City Hall pay for it, with money from the general fund or from a new tax?

City officials are looking to residents for suggestions. Marcy Koukhab, a resident and organizer with Common Cause, would suggest public financing is the best way to make elections more equitable. “This kind of system, promotes competition by enabling more candidates …from more diverse backgrounds to seek office, and reduces their dependence on special interests,” she said. Tia Skulski, a member of the Santa Monica Commission on the Status of Women, pointed out that in Arizona and Maine, where clean elections have been in place since 2000, the programs are very popular with voters and candidates alike, and more women are running. Nine out of 11 Arizona statewide offices are held by clean candidates, and 85 percent of Maine’s legislature is cleanly elected, Skulski added. Those interested in learning more about the coalition are urged to e-mail VOTE4SM@gmail.com. The coalition is urging residents to attend the meeting tonight to voice their concerns about the electoral process. “You really do get what you pay for,” Brennan said. kevinh@smdp.com

COMMUNITYPROFILES PETER WALLERSTEIN

Wallerstein on call to save animals FROM CP PAGE 1 One of his first friends in California would steer Wallerstein toward an area that would come to consume his life for the next two decades — marine life protection. It was the late 1970s and Wallerstein had just met Paul Watson, the founder of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, an organization advocating for marine life protection and conservation and demanding the shut down of illegal whaling. Wallerstein was offered the position of the pacific director of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society and spent the next few years at sea, confronting illegal whaling ships they would come across. After a campaign in the Bering Sea, Wallerstein was at home watching a news program about whales drowning in fishing nets. Watching the newscast, Wallerstein automatically assumed the whales were dying in the Bering Sea. “I was shocked that it was in our own neighborhood in Point Dume and Palos Verdes,” Wallerstein said. “There wasn’t a coordinated effort to go out and save them.” From the newscast, the Whale Rescue Team was born.

LAUNCHING THE WHALE RESCUE TEAM

Unfortunately, because there wasn’t a coordinated effort to save these whales in the mid 1980s, there were no books written about how to save the marine mammals. All Wallerstein had was some knowledge he gained through his years with the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society and a determination to learn along the way. Equipped with scuba gear and an 18-foot inflatable boat, Wallerstein and a crew of two assistants received the Whale Rescue Team’s first call in 1985. A mother and baby whale had gotten caught in a fishing net off Palos Verdes and were rapidly approaching death as they were struggling coming up for air. The crew was able to cut the mother free, but was having trouble freeing the baby whale as the net was wrapped around it’s tail. Every time the baby whale attempted to come up for air, the net would drag it back down. The mother then dove underneath the boat. “There are only two species of whales that have turned on their attackers — a sperm whale and a California gray whale,” Wallerstein said. “I didn’t know what this whale mom was going to do.” It was then when the mother popped up on the other side of the boat, lifting her baby out of the water.

Melody Hanatani melodyh@smdp.com READY TO ROLL: Peter Wallerstein has been saving sea mammals and other wildlife for the past 30 years.

Realizing what the mother was doing, the crew started cutting the net as fast as they could. The mother whale ended up making the same motion, diving down and up to pull her baby out of water, never touching the boat, before the crew was able to free the whale. The two eventually just swam away. “That was my sign,” Wallerstein said. “I might be a little slow, but not slow enough to recognize this is what I might be good at.” ENLISTING CITIES’ SUPPORT

The system was flawed before the Whale Rescue Team came along, Wallerstein believes. Responsibility for saving these marine animals lay in the hands of local animal control and even parking enforcement officers who had no training, he said. For years Wallerstein fought with the federal government for permission to save the marine mammals himself before he discovered a loophole that left that decision in the hands of the local municipalities. The city of Santa Monica became the first city to contract with the Whale Rescue Team for only $1 a year, though Wallerstein jokes that the city has not fulfilled its obligation and actually owes him about $10. Today, Wallerstein is contracted by cities from Topanga down to Long Beach. Charging a nominal $1, much of Wallerstein’s time is also spent fundraising to continue operations. Last year, he rescued 264 marine animals during 198 calls for assistance. This year, he has so far rescued 129 animals — 78 sea lions, 39 elephant seals, six harbor seals, five dolphins and one whale. Rescued animals are usually sent to the Marine Care Center in San Pedro. From there, Wallerstein said he never sees the animals again, his own personal decision not to get attached. Wallerstein is on call 24/7, having established a 24 hour hotline where comes come in from local agencies, lifeguards, animal control and even citizens. Some of the calls are false alarms — citizens thinking an animal is suffering when it’s just lying on the beach. He received a tip about a sea lion in San Pedro during the interview on Wednesday. After assessing the situation over the phone, Wallerstein instructs the person not to touch the sea lion, saying its bite is 10 times greater than a Doberman. Wallerstein has only been bitten once in the past 22 years. His one case of misfortune caused by a pregnant sea lion, his 30th rescue during a two week period a few years ago. “I just turned 55 years old and I’m still wrestling sea lions,” Wallerstein said.

FROM TEA PAGE 3 remainder of the party. For Analisa, 6, and Martha Burns the party was a great excuse to get dressed up. “We go to birthday parties and nobody gets dressed up,” Martha said. “We like to get dressed up because clothes are so important in learning about history. You just feel differently, you have a different sense of time.” Analisa’s English father taught her about tea parties. “I have tea parties with my tea set,” she said. “I have them with my 4-year-old brother. I usually just use water. I like having the parties because they are fun and you get to enjoy yourself.” Trudy Miles and her five-year-old daughter Nevaeh inherited a family heirloom for their parties: an antique tea set from a great-cousin. “I’m afraid to touch it because it’s so old,” Trudy said. “You just want to hold it, but being at this tea party inspires me to start using it.”

YOU JUST FEEL DIFFERENTLY, YOU HAVE A DIFFERENT SENSE OF TIME.” Martha Burns Mother

Johnson said that she organized the event after the success of last year’s mother and daughter spa day. “Middle-school girls came with their moms and afterwards the parents kept asking me, ‘Well what can we do with the younger ones?,’” Johnson said. She stated that the tea party was a great way to include the younger age group. “I also wanted to have the event because I didn’t have tea parties growing up,” Johnson said. “Most of the events are inspired by asking myself, ‘What would I have had fun doing at that age?’”

A sign-up sheet for the event was posted in the beginning of April and by the middle of the month, a waiting list had already started, Johnson said. “People were already asking me, ‘What about next year?’ ‘Are you going to have another one?’” Jeannie Collins signed up for the tea party to spend time with her honorary daughter, Zoe, 10. “Her mother was my best friend and after she passed away, we started referring to me as her surrogate mother,” Collins said. “I told Zoe that it meant that it is kind of like a real mom that steps in,” said Collins. Collins added that since she doesn’t have any children of her own, she considers Zoe her only child. “The tea party is a great way to spend time with Zoe and it just makes you happy to be a woman.” Zoe said that she had tea parties growing up with her mother and sisters. “We always put real tea in the teapot with a china tea set,” she said. “One time my sister dropped the cup and broke it. My mom didn’t get mad, she just told her to use a plastic one.” news@smdp.com

NFL

Packers’ Moss miss leaves Favre ticked BY CHRIS JENKINS Associated Press Writer

MILWAUKEE The Green Bay Packers left Brett Favre fuming when they didn’t pull off a trade for wide receiver Randy Moss during the NFL draft. But was the three-time MVP angry enough to ask his way out of Green Bay? Amid public grousing from Favre about the state of his team over the weekend, a report on the Fox Sports Web site, citing anonymous sources, said Favre’s agent called Packers general manager Ted Thompson to request a trade a few days after last month’s draft. According to the report, Packers coach Mike McCarthy later called the quarterback and was able to calm his anger, getting Favre to admit that he didn’t really want to play elsewhere. In a statement posted on the Packers’ Web site, Thompson said he would not address the specifics of the report but understood the frustration Favre vented in interviews over the weekend. “I think it’s natural for a player to be frustrated from time to time — that’s simply being human,” Thompson said. “Everyone knows that Brett Favre is all about winning. As an organization, we share that commitment. And we want to win now.” Other Packers officials and Favre’s agent, James “Bus” Cook, did not return telephone messages from The Associated Press on Sunday.

The Packers’ mandatory minicamp begins Friday, and it was not clear whether Favre, who had surgery to remove bone spurs from his left ankle in late February, would attend. McCarthy said during the team’s rookie orientation last weekend that he expected Favre to be present, even if he wasn’t able to practice while he continues to recover from the surgery. Favre didn’t mention anything about wanting a trade in interviews he conducted during his annual charity golf tournament in Tunica, Miss. on Saturday. But Favre did make it clear that he believed the Packers passed on a chance to make “a steal” of a deal for Moss, who instead was traded from Oakland to New England April 29. “He was going to wipe his contract clean and sign for $3 million guaranteed, plus a fourth-round draft pick. “That would have been a steal,” Favre told the Biloxi (Miss.) Sun-Herald. “But we were not willing to guarantee part of that $3 million. I even had (Cook) call up there and tell them I would give up part of my salary to guarantee that part of the money. Apparently that wasn’t enough either.” Favre, who has flirted with retirement during the past several offseasons, told the team in February that he would return for his 17th NFL season. But he now wonders whether the Packers want to move on without him as part of a long-term rebuilding movement, a sentiment he has hinted at in the past.

MLB

Clemens set to make first start BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SEATTLE Roger Clemens likely will make his first minor league start for the New York Yankees on Friday at Class-A Tampa. Yankees manager Joe Torre said before Sunday’s game in Seattle that Clemens will throw a bullpen session on Tuesday in Tampa. If all goes well, will probably make his first start on Friday against Fort Myers. It has yet to be determined whether Clemens will make two or three minor league starts before joining the Yankees’ rotation. Clemens, who agreed to a $28,000,022, one-year contract on May 6, is scheduled to arrive at the Yankees’ Tampa

training complex Monday. Torre expects that Clemens will move up to a higher minor league level for his second start. “He feels pretty good from what I understand, but again, he needs to get his legs under him right now,” Torre said. “The arm is one thing, but the legs (are) a big contributor to the way he pitches.” When he rejoined the Houston Astros last year, Clemens agreed to a contract on May 31, made three minor league starts and returned to the majors on June 22. Clemens would be in line to pitch next at Double-A Trenton, against Portland on May 23, then could pitch at Triple-A.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

★★★★★ A partner might stir the pot. Back off and understand the ramifications as pieces tumble into place. You’ll gain an understanding of just how insightful this person might be. Say little; observe a lot. Tonight: Choose a movie. Kick back.

★★★ Rein in your expenses, and you will be much happier. Allow greater creativity to solve a problem, but before you take action, find someone you trust with whom to brainstorm. Discussions might be animated and not heading in the direction you choose. Tonight: Talk up a storm.

Happy Birthday!

Actress Cate Blanchett (1969)

Use your wisdom to enrich your life through positive choices. Your ability to turn a situation around frequently unfurls this year. Understand the importance of planning, researching and finding an expert. You might not be quick to find a solution, but when you do, your choice proves to be most effective. Pushing others will not work, even if you are forceful. If you are single, someone you think is OK and on the up-and-up might not be. Use your discretion getting to know new people. If you are attached, plan time alone together. As a couple, you need these quiet periods to bond.

Helping out Harry Potter author J.K. ROWLING has pledged a major contribution to a $3 million reward fund for the safe return of a British girl who has gone missing in Portugal, a Sunday newspaper said. The News of the World

said Rowling had offered the single largest contribution to the fund started by the tabloid newspaper. It called Rowling’s pledge “staggering,” but said the author asked the amount be kept secret. Madeleine McCann, 4,

‘Harry Potter’ author Rowling adds to reward for girl’s return

disappeared on May 2 after her parents left her, and her brother and sister, both aged 2, alone while they went to a restaurant at Praia da Luz, their vacation resort in Portugal’s Algarve region. Portuguese police contin-

ue to search for her. The newspaper said the amount Rowling offered was larger than the $495,000 pledge from Topshop owner Sir Philip Green. Sir Richard Branson offered $198,000 and

American Idol judge Simon Cowell promised $99,000. Rowling, 41, is one of Britain’s richest people with an estimated fortune of $1 billion, thanks to the best-selling novels and films about her boy wizard. ASSOCIATED PRESS

ALLEY RETURNS HOME

Thinking of moms KI RSTI E ALLEY is paying for truckloads of supplies to help residents and their animals recover from the tornado that nearly destroyed this south-central Kansas town. The actress, a native of Wichita, and a group of Church of Scientology volunteers set up a tent to give out bottled water, candy, Tshirts, hats, socks and other supplies. They also brought food, bowls, cardboard carriers and other items for animals. Alley, who starred in the TV series “Cheers,” paid for everything. She arrived in Wichita on Thursday and said Friday that she expects to be in Greensburg for several days. AP

BROOKE SHIELDS says postpartum depression is more prevalent than anyone wants to admit, and that it’s time for lawmakers to pass legislation to help new mothers. “There is an entire population of women suffering,” the actress told George Stephanopoulos in an interview broadcast Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.” “And it’s time, I believe, for Congress to

step in and prevent that, and actually save lives and save potential tragedy,” she said. Shields made headlines last year when she acknowledged taking antidepressants after her first child was born — and Tom Cruise publicly criticized her for using the drugs. She told Stephanopoulos that she experienced acute postpartum depression after

the birth of her first daughter, and it was devastating to her family. “I had gone through numerous attempts to have a baby, and then I finally did have this perfect, beautiful, healthy baby, and it all but destroyed me,” she said. She said a bill being considered by Congress would be “an easy gift to give to women everywhere.”

Tillis, who turned his stutter into his trademark, received a standing ovation as his daughter, fellow singer and Opry member Pam Tillis, and son Mel Jr. joined him on stage. His formal induction will be June 9. Tillis, who began performing in the 1950s, has stuttered since he was a child but not when he sings. “Singing is a kind of a mechanical helper,” he once told The Associated Press. He began his career as a songwriter, penning classics such as Bobby Bare’s “Detroit City” and “Ruby

tainer of the year in 1976, and has appeared in several films including “Every Which Way But Loose” with Clint Eastwood and “Smokey and the Bandit II” with Burt Reynolds. The Opry, established in 1925, is the longest continuously running radio show in the country. Legends such as Hank Williams Sr. and Patsy Cline were once members of the cast, and contemporary stars including Alan Jackson and Martina McBride are part of today’s show, which airs every Friday and Saturday night on WSM-AM. AP

Country singers stage motorcycle run, concert EDDI E MONTGOM ERY and TROY GENTRy led hundreds of bikers and other country music artists into the hills overlooking Las Vegas for an annual charity motorcycle ride Sunday. The ride, which has become part of the events surrounding the Academy of Country Music awards, preceded a 7-hour concert at downtown Las Vegas’ Fremont Street Experience. “It’s really, really unbeliev-

able how much it’s grown. We’re just glad to be very much a part of it and just glad to see all the riders join in,” Montgomery said. He said the academy asked the singing duo Montgomery Gentry to kick off the ride four years ago, and drew about 36 bikes. This year, more than 600 people pre-registered, and a steady stream of walk-ups on Sunday expected to push the number well above 1,000.

Riders paid a minimum of $30 to take part. Proceeds go to the academy’s charitable fund. The academy has raised more than $1.5 million for charities and organizations around the world. Its foundation was established for programs dedicated to the awareness, growth and education of music. “It’s impressive that these amazing people and fellow artists donate their time and

Case No. LP012757 To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of AHMAD MOHAMMADIAN A PETITION FOR PROBATE has been filed by Soheila Mo-hammadian in the Superior Court of California, County of LOS ANGE-LES. THE PETITION FOR PRO-BATE requests that Soheila Mo-hammadian be appointed as per-sonal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. THE PETITION requests the decedent's will and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. THE PETITION requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administra-tion of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representa-tive to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important ac-tions, however, the personal repre-sentative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A HEARING on the petition will be held on August 2, 2007 at 9:00 AM in Dept. No. A located at 6230 Sylmar Ave., Van Nuys, CA 91401. IF YOU OBJECT to the grant-ing of the petition, you should ap-pear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a contingent creditor of the deceased, you must file your claim
