THE IT’S GETTING HOT IN HERE ISSUE

Punching the clock City Council members earn high marks for attendance BY KEVIN HERRERA I Daily Press Staff Writer CITY HALL Absence makes the heart grow fonder, but not when it comes to City Council meetings. Residents expect their elected officials to be in their seats on the dais when roll is taken. When they’re not, business can come to a grinding halt, as debates are postponed and items put on hold due to a lack of quorum, or out of respect for members who are not present. Luckily for Santa Monicans, their council members are a dedicated bunch. No member has missed more than 11 percent of meetings, a stellar rating for part-time officials who must delicately juggle events in their personal lives with the duties of being a public official, said Bob Stern, president of the Center for Governmental Studies, a nonprofit, nonpartisan think tank that specializes in campaign finance reform and community engagement. “If 89 percent is the worst (level of attendance), then that’s pretty good,” Stern said.“You’ve got to remember that they are not getting paid a whole lot …These people have regular jobs. It’s not like the L.A. City Council where that’s their only job.” Council members receive $932.11 per month, or about $466 per meeting. “It really depends on the meeting,” Stern added. “Clearly if there are important issues at stake, they should be there. But when you have issues that are clearly less important, SEE COUNCIL PAGE 12

rising each year, elected officials are toying with the idea of revisiting Santa Monica’s standard $250 campaign contribution as part of an overall review of local election laws. The issue was raised this week when the City Council voted 4 to 0 to have staff explore ways to publicly finance campaigns; better track contributions; and review the challenges of enforcing a law restricting the amount of money SEE CONTRIBUTIONS PAGE 11

‘Suge’ puts Malibu digs on market By the Associated Press

MALIBU Marion “Suge” Knight’s sevenbedroom, 9 1/2-bath home has been placed on the market for $6.2 million, part of the rap music mogul’s financial overhaul under Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. The 8,272-square-foot Mediterraneanstyle mansion was built in 2001 and is located on a 6.79-acre lot in the hills above the Pacific Ocean. It has access to two beaches and is being sold with an additional 2.11 acres of land. The gated property, which includes a pool and tennis courts, was listed earlier this month by Coldwell Banker. An Internet listing notes that the home is being sold “as is,” and its sale is subject to approval by the bankruptcy court. Knight sought bankruptcy protection for himself and his record company, Death Row Records, in April 2006. He claimed debts of more than $100 million in each filing. At the time, Knight estimated personal assets of zero to $50,000. Calls to Knight attorneys were not immediately returned Friday.

“Happy summer! It’s patio time!”

But life works in mysterious ways. Bluth, who graduated from Santa Monica High School in 1997, was studying music at UCLA when a friend introduced him to Linux, an open-source computer operating system. “For me, it was like a duck to water,” Bluth, who now lives in Culver City, said on Thursday. With music on the backburner, Bluth found himself spending endless hours on the computer just for fun. After graduation, he began bouncing from job to job, finally deciding to launch his own Web development company while tutoring students on the side. From his Web development company, called MZ Projects — the MZ standing for “Monkey Zone” — came the creation of MZ Language Review, a site offering virtual

flashcards for foreign language studies. Bluth, 28, had initially created the program to help him learn Spanish and Japanese vocabulary words and had no intentions on making the site public. It was at the urging of friends who found the site useful that he decided to launch the site. For $2 a month, MZ Language Review allows the user to create an unlimited stack of vocabulary flash cards, which are inputted by the user. The user can organize the flash cards by category, such as by animals or food. “You can organize and reorganize and pick what you want quickly,” said Bluth, who speaks French fluently. “If it’s a small group SEE CP PAGE 11

Tree-inspired parable

Bill Bauer

Editor:

Walking along Fourth Street in Santa Monica early in the morning, looking at the trees that line the blocks between Wilshire Boulevard and Broadway, trees that some greedy merchants in town want to cut down, this parable popped into mind: “It is harder for a man to enter the kingdom of heaven than it is for a camel to go through the eye of a needle.” Why ... because the rich tend to covet material things over their spiritual nature.

Ron Lowe Santa Monica

Straight dope on dope dealers Editor:

Everyone knows that the area to the north of Pico Boulevard between 16th and 26th streets is a major crack selling area. It’s just as bad as Oakwood in Venice or even MacArthur Park downtown. It’s baffling to me that the shootings that happen around this area are referred to as “possibly gang related.” If you don’t believe me, take a drive through that area at night. It’s 7-Eleven for crackheads with dealers on every corner. You can score dope at any time of the day. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that it’s turf war between drug dealers that’s happening over there. So why is it so mysterious that we continually have fatal shootings in that neighborhood? It’s such a small area, I don’t understand why something can’t be done to clean up the drug trade in those few square blocks. It’s like a tiny cancer in the otherwise beautiful body of Santa Monica that needs to be lanced. Why has no one lanced it yet? I’ve lived on 10th Street for six years and every day when I jog past Santa Monica College I know it could be my last because I might get hit by a stray bullet from some New Jack idiot. If we don’t want to lose any more lives we might want to seriously consider rounding up the handful of dope dealers in that area and driving them out once and for all.

Justin Valdivia Santa Monica

Let’s get together this Fourth of July Editor:

How does one celebrate the Fourth of July in Santa Monica? The fireworks at the Pier are a dim memory and the Santa Monica College celebration never takes place on the holiday itself. Is it enough to commemorate our nation’s birth by merely spending a few hours at the beach before heading home to fire up the grill? Seeking to add some organized holiday fun in a town which lacks a local event on the Fourth of July, the Ocean Park Association (OPA), in conjunction with the North of Montana Association (NOMA), is organizing a parade down Main Street from City Hall to the Venice border on the morning of July 4, at 9:30 a.m. The Main Street Merchants (MSBIA), WilshireMontana Neighborhood Coalition (Wilmont), and various businesses and organizations are also helping to underwrite the cost of the parade. Decorate yourselves, build a float, dress up your bikes, wagons or go-carts and celebrate Independence Day with a small town, community parade. “Best Decorated” wagon wins a surfboard from ZJ Boarding House, “Best Decorated” bike and others will win other prizes! Spectators welcome and encouraged! Our Honorary Grand Marshal is retiring Roosevelt Elementary School Principal Jerry Harris. With 25 years of service to our kids, our schools and our community, Jerry is the perfect person to honor in our first parade. It’s our way of saying thanks for all that he has done for Santa Monica. Information about participating in the parade and applications are available at www.opa-sm.org/parade. Individuals and families may register the morning of the parade. For groups, floats and those proposing vehicles or pets, the application deadline is Wednesday, June 26, 2007. So come on out to Main Street on the Fourth of July for the parade!

Elderly get shorted by housing policies THE CITY OF SANTA MONICA APPEARS

to have a housing policy that discriminates against the elderly. Since 2000, the City has funded the development of over 622 low-income rental units — only 20 of them are for seniors. The failure to fund adequate deed restricted senior housing is having a particularly egregious effect on the residents of the Village Trailer Park at 2930 Colorado Avenue. Village Trailer Park is home to 99 Santa Monicans — many of whom have been here for decades, are elderly, have health issues and limited resources. They all could be on the street within a year. Property owner, Yorba Linda based J & H Asset Property Management, has informed residents that the trailer park is closing. They’ve been urged to take advantage of “generous” moving allowances according to the Daily Press (”Uneasy living,” June 12, Page 1). Closing dates have been postponed three times — the latest move-out deadline is scheduled for January 31, 2008. Park resident, Garland Kemp, tells me, “Management said they may be able to let us stay a little longer.” Speculation is that the two-acre property will be developed into market rate condominiums with office space and retail when all tenants are evicted. Where do these people go? Thirtyeight of them are over 60. Thirty-two are physically disabled or chronically ill. Some residents, such as my barber, Garland Kemp, have lived and worked in Santa Monica "for at least 25 years.” Kemp has applied for housing through the city’s public housing nonprofit, Community Corporation of Santa Monica. CCSM recently opened three family apartment buildings. A fourth is under construction. Additional family buildings are planned for the Pico neighborhood and in the Civic Center. Other projects in the pipeline also have multibedrooms for families with children. And, with applicants recruited outside of Santa Monica filling up CCSM’s waiting list, it’s not surprising Santa Monica oldtimers like Kemp can’t obtain housing or will have to wait for years. Possibilities are that a few trailer park residents may be able to move to the cityowned Mountain View Trailer Park on Stewart Street, but terms, space availability and costs have yet to be determined. Private developer, NMS Properties, recently unveiled plans for a number of affordable, single-room occupancy (SRO) apartment buildings at various city locations (”City showing bias against ‘singles,’” April 30, Page 4). With a projected $1,000 monthly rent, they’ll be out of reach for most Village Trailer Park residents — some of which now pay as little as a few hundred dollars a month for a pad. NMS says they’ll accept Section 8 vouchers which many trailer park residents would qualify for. However, the city is even freezing out evicted park residents

because they recently approved an emergency ordinance that slaps a moratorium on proposed SRO buildings — delaying and possibly stopping most of NMS’s planned developments. Construction of affordable housing is a part of the City Charter. At one time, a large percentage of city-sponsored affordable housing was earmarked for seniors. A subsequent charter amendment, approved by voters in 1998, had no senior stipulations. Since 2000, the city has approved and/or funded 622 units of new public housing, including the 20 units in a senior building planned for 1458 14th St. Only a paltry 3 percent of affordable housing approved during the last 6-1/2 years is deed-restricted for seniors. Although there are other, older subsidized buildings for the elderly, demand has far outstripped supply.

NEWS INTERN Reagan Wheeler news@smdp.com

Aren’t the Commission for the Senior Community and the Housing Commission abdicating their responsibilities? Aware of a huge increase in the senior population looming as “baby boomers” near retirement age, both commissions have failed the elderly by not advocating vigorously for a greater percentage of city developed housing to be earmarked for low income seniors. Meanwhile, many of Santa Monica’s neediest seniors are on the brink. Frail and forgotten, they get by only on Social Security or small pensions. Seniors who’ve lived here and contributed to the community for decades are ignored and forgotten by city bureaucrats, clueless citizen commissioners, politicians and a city-connected housing provider focused on families. Santa Monica must step up it’s commitment to low-income senior housing so that those evicted from places like the Village Trailer Park aren’t forced to spend the last years of their lives alone in a strange and unfamiliar place far, far away.

Send comments to editor@smdp.com

Simple solutions for victimless violations mari-juana, the smoking of marijuana, and purchased sex between consenting adults were criminalized by the California legislature, the only crime committed was the enactment of the laws making these things crimes. No one forces adults to engage in socalled vices. When adults willingly indulge in a vice, no one is personally harmed. No financial harm is created by indulging in a vice; such behavior only represents a free market exchange of payment for a product or a service. Individuals are not harmed by marijuana smokers and consensual sex workers. The legislature decided to protect citizens from these vices by imposing an unworkable code of morality. Adults smoking marijuana and paid-for sex between consenting adults are not inherently criminal activities, and the legislature had no right to declare that they are. Perhaps the legislature couldn’t figure out how to tax marijuana smokers or consensual sex workers. If you can’t tax — and criminalize and jail violators for not paying the tax — then appearing as though you are tough on crime is a reliable way to look good at election time. However, there are costs associated with the police enforcement and court time wasted. The latest available (2005) crime report statistics from the California Attorney General’s office shows a disturbing picture: 125,000 felony arrests for homicide, rape, armed robbery and aggravated assault, and 160,000 misdemeanor arrests for personal possession of marijuana and prostitution. Conservatively, 500,000 hours of police time — through arrest, transport, booking, and paperwork — were spent on cases involving personal possession of marijuana and consensual sex workers. And the rest of the justice system is clogged with these cases. In California, marijuana enforcement fritters away $150 million a year in police, court, prison and probation expenses. With consensual sex worker arrests included, another $50 million is squandered. All told, $200 million of taxpayers’ money is misspent protecting our morals. From the crime report statistics, of the 189,000 reported felonies in California, only 83,000 were cleared (i.e., resulted in an arrest or charges were dropped). This leaves 106,000 uncleared felonies and the unarrested criminals who committed those felonies. To show how intolerable this situation is, add the previous four years of still

uncleared felonies and you get 500,000 uncleared felonies of homicide, rape, armed robbery and aggravated assault Focusing law enforcement’s efforts on marijuana smokers and consensual sex workers doesn’t protect you or me while tens of thousands of felons roam free like wild wolves looking for stray deer. Imagine how high the clearance rates would be if police officers arresting pot smokers and consensual sex workers were redeployed to tracking down felons. District attorneys get into the act as well, using a ruse to puff up their hard crime conviction figures. If a marijuana user who was inveigled to sell his personal possession marijuana to an undercover officer is arrested and the person pleads out to stay out of jail, the D.A. claims this as a felony conviction of a drug dealer. If an undercover officer gets a street person to point out a seller of marijuana, both get arrested for felony possession of narcotics for sale — the possessor for selling and the street person for aiding and abetting. The legislators who originally criminalized personal possession of marijuana and paid consensual sex were guilty of political arrogance. Today’s legislators must bite the political bullet and enact a major reform of personal possession of marijuana and consensual sex worker laws. Enacting reform legislation requires only five simple sentences: • All criminal laws governing personal possession of marijuana use are repealed. • All criminal laws governing paid sex between consenting adults are repealed. • All command staffs of police agencies are to redeploy their personal possession marijuana drug user and consensual sex worker detail officers to hunt major crime felons. • All charges and specifications in pending or current court cases for personal possession of marijuana use and sex between consenting adults are to be dismissed with prejudice. • All persons serving time for personal marijuana possession use or as consensual sex workers are to be immediately released, absent convictions on other charges. If we are to be taxed to have the police protect us, the least we can ask is for them to concentrate on protecting us from dangerous felons — not pot smokers and consensual sex workers.

Elected official discovers truth BY ROBERT JABLON Associated Press Writer

LOS ANGELES Zoila Meyer spent her whole life believing she was an American. Her parents brought her with them from Cuba when she was 1 year old and always told her she was a U.S. citizen. She even won election to the City Council of Adelanto, a town of about 23,000 in Southern California’s high desert. But on Tuesday, immigration officers put the 40-year-old mother of four in handcuffs and she is facing deportation for illegally voting. “To be honest with you, I’m scared. How can they just pluck me out of my family, my kids?” Meyer said in a telephone interview on Friday. Meyer, whose story was first reported in the Victorville Daily Press, lives in the San Bernardino County desert town of Apple Valley. She was living in nearby Adelanto when she was elected to the City Council there in 2004. At that point, a member of her husband’s family who dislikes Meyer contacted officials and told them she was born in Cuba, prompting an investigation. Eventually, “the police came to me and said, ‘Zoila, you’re not a citizen. You’re a legal resident but you’re not a citizen,"’ Meyer said. She resigned after 10 weeks in office. “I apologized. ... It hurt me to do that, too,” she said. Meyer also has applied to become a naturalized citizen. In the meantime, she continued with her life: raising four children and attending two local colleges to earn degrees toward her goal of working in the justice system as a forensic nurse. However, because she was a non-citizen, Meyer faced a felony charge of illegally voting in the 2004 election. In April 2006, she pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of fraudulent voting and was placed on probation, fined and ordered to pay restitution, said Lori Haley, a spokeswoman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. What Meyer didn’t realize is that fraudulently voting is a deportable offense. On Monday night, Meyer said immigration officials showed up at her home and warned her to appear at their San Bernardino office the next day. Her husband drove her to the office on Tuesday. “And they handcuffed me,” Meyer said. “They put me in jail and they frisked me and processed me.” “I said, ‘You’re doing this because I voted?"’ She was released but must appear

before an immigration judge on July 18 who will determine whether she will be deported to Canada, which was the last point of entry into the U.S. recorded in her immigration record. Meyer said she and her parents had visited Canada and she had gone many times to Mexico and no one ever asked her to prove her citizenship. She believed her father, who still believes she is a citizen, and never asked for her immigration papers before the issue was raised three years ago.

THEY DECIDE WHO STAYS AND WHO GOES.... YOU THINK YOU’RE FREE: YOU’RE REALLY NOT.” Zoila Meyer Former lawmaker

“I do not blame my parents,” she said. “These are people who came from Cuba. I feel bad for them. They brought me here to make it better for me.” Meyer, who does not support illegal immigration, said she thinks immigration procedures should be changed to prevent misunderstandings. “It makes me feel like we’re all just numbers,” she said of her case. “I see people writing ‘this is my country.’ It really isn’t. It belongs to the government and they decide who stays and who goes.... You think you’re free: you’re really not. If they can do this to me, they can do it to anybody.” Meyer also said she doubted her case would have come to light if she had not run for a political office. “Everybody flies under the radar. I try to do something positive for my community, my children,” she said. The case is unusual but immigration officials were just doing their job when they arrested Meyer, Haley said. “People are arrested on immigration charges from all walks of life,” she said. “She can plead her case before an immigration judge, if she feels that she has reason to seek release for removal. ... Everybody has due process when they’re arrested.” Meyer said her family already has decided to sell the house and move with her to Canada if she loses the case. But she has no desire to pull up roots. “I’ve lived here all of my life. I always thought that I was a citizen,” she said. “I loved where I’m at. I don’t know anyone in Canada. ...This is where I live.”

Wildfire rages on Hundreds of homes still threatened by approaching flames BY JEANNETTE J. LEE Associated Press Writer

ANCHORAGE, Alaska With dozens of homes and cabins already destroyed by wildfire, crews worked Sunday to protect hundreds of others tucked in the hills of the scenic Kenai Peninsula. The fire has burgeoned to 81 square miles since Tuesday, consuming 35 far-flung cabins in the Caribou Hills, state fire information officials said. Forty other structures, including sheds and outhouses, were also lost in the popular hunting and snowmobiling area about 80 miles south of Anchorage. The blaze is carving easily through wide swaths of spruce killed by beetles, and crews are finding it hard to maneuver in the warren of footpaths and gravel roads crisscrossing the hills, said fire information officer Elaine Hall. The fire threatens another 600 residences and cabins, Hall said. An evacuation order has been in effect since Friday, but fire officials said an unknown number of residents have refused to budge. “Some folks stayed to protect their houses when they were supposed to evacuate, but we haven’t heard about anyone being hurt so far,” said Bob Evenson, a fire volunteer. Crews were trying to take advantage of light rain early Sunday, building a series of fire breaks on the western and northwestern flanks of the fire. Cool, cloudy weather, with highs in the low 60s, is expected for Monday, but winds up to 25 mph could up the fire’s momentum, said Sam Albanese, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. Many of the homes in the area are used only seasonally.

Nearly 400 firefighting personnel from around Alaska and the lower 48 states have arrived throughout the week, according to the Alaska Interagency Management Team. The blaze began when sparks from a grinder used to sharpen a shovel fell into dry grass. Evenson said the 16-by-16-foot winter cabin he built with his brothers nearly 30 years ago has probably been destroyed. He had removed everything but a cook stove and a wood stove because bears sometimes explore the unlocked plywood building when no one is around. “We’re over the point of worry, and there’s nothing we can do about it right now,” Evenson said. “The sad part about losing all the cabins is it’s a good place to take the family.”

WE’RE OVER THE POINT OF WORRY, AND THERE’S NOTHING WE CAN DO ABOUT IT RIGHT NOW.’ Bob Evenson Fire volunteer

Smaller fires are also burning in the Mat-Su Valley a few dozen miles north of Anchorage. Alaska’s fire season is just getting started. The worst recorded season was 2004, when fires consumed a total of 6.6 million acres, or 10,312 square miles. In Montana, higher humidity and a change in fuels slowed the progress of a wildfire in the Lewis and Clark National Forest. It moved from heavy timber into a brushier area and continued to burn away from six structures, a mix of commercial property and vacation homes, fire officials said. The fire was not contained.

A carjacking hat trick Nevada man accused of stealing multiple vehicles during chase BY MARTIN GRIFFITH Associated Press Writer

RENO, Nev. Law enforcement authorities continued a search Sunday for a 21-year-old man accused of carjacking three separate vehicles at gunpoint while leading police on a wild chase across two northern Nevada counties. No one was injured during the string of incidents around Elko, 290 miles east of Reno. Elko County Undersheriff Rocky Gonzales said the chase began late Saturday afternoon when Anthony Fairbanks of Silver Springs fled after being stopped for a traffic violation on Nevada Route 278 in Eureka County, about 25 miles southwest of Elko. A short time later, the suspect headed east on Interstate 80 at speeds of more than 100 mph until he bumped a car from behind at the Elburz exit about 16 miles east of Elko and ordered a family of three out of it, Gonzales said. The suspect then drove about a mile and crossed into the interstate’s westbound

lanes, where he’s accused of feigning an accident and driving away in the car of a couple who had stopped to assist him. After returning to the Elburz exit, the suspect drove north to a ranch and carjacked a sport utility vehicle belonging to its residents. The suspect then headed west on I-80 before leaving it at Elko and heading north on Nevada Route 225. He eventually traveled off road, crashing through fences and ditches. The disabled SUV was found Sunday morning near Adobe Summit, about 10 miles northwest of Elko.

WE NEVER KNEW EXACTLY WHAT CAR HE WAS IN.’ Rocky Gonzales Elko County Undersheriff

Gonzales said he thinks the suspect kept carjacking vehicles to throw off authorities. “It happened so quickly that by the time anybody got a description of the vehicle he was in, he was on to the next one,” the undersheriff said. “We never knew exactly what car he was in.”

Guzzlers’ days are numbered Current Senate legislation hints at reducing gas usage BY H. JOSEF HEBERT Associated Press Writer

Mark your Calendar! The only local events calendar in town. smdp.com/events Visit us online at smdp.com

WASHINGTON The cars, SUVS and pickups people will buy in the years ahead are likely to use less fuel, and many will rely on ethanol or household electricity instead of gasoline. The energy legislation pushed through the Senate this week provides a roadmap to the future, demanding higher automobile fuel economy, mandating huge increases in ethanol as a motor fuel and supporting more research into building “plug-in” hybrid-electric vehicles. While Senate Republicans complained that the bill does nothing to increase domestic oil production, Democrats said that’s because the nation must move energy policy away from its heavy reliance on oil. The House is preparing its own version. The Senate bill requires automakers to increase fuel economy to 35 miles per gallon, about a 40 percent increase over what cars, SUVs and small trucks are required to achieve now. It would lump all the vehicles under a single regulation, but also give manufacturers flexibility so large SUVs wouldn’t have to meet the same requirements as smaller cars. It requires a yearly increase of ethanol production to 36 billion gallons a year by 2022, a sevenfold increase from today. By 2015 half of the new vehicles offered to buyers — as many as 10 million — will have to be capable of running on 85 percent ethanol, biodiesel or some other alternative energy source. And for the first time, the president must find ways to cut oil demand by 20 percent of what it is expected to be in 2017 — a target President Bush has embraced — and attain further reductions after that. Gasoline demand is expected to grow 13 percent to 261 billion gallons a year by 2017 without some fuel saving measures. But will auto showrooms provide the same selection of vehicles? Will they be as big, as powerful, as safe? “I would expect them to look a lot like they do today, the same size, the same acceleration and the same or even better safety,” says David Friedman, director of the clean vehicles program at the Union of Concerned Scientists. He maintains they will have better technology, better engines, more efficient transmissions and stronger aluminum bodies. They’ll cost a little more but use much less gasoline. “The goal is to replace fossil fuels with alternative fuels and use conservation,” said Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Wash., who was involved in the discussions on many of the auto fuel economy and motor fuel issues that ended up in the bill. What has changed from a few years ago, she said, is there no longer is “a fear factor that you’re going to be in itty bitty cars” if the government requires automakers to make more fuel efficient vehicles. In addition to making conventional cars more fuel efficient, the bill seeks to boost research into use of lithium-ion batteries — like those used in laptop computers and cameras — in vehicles. Should ways be found to make them more durable in a vehicle environment, cars could be plugged into an electric socket at home, relying only rarely on gasoline, says Friedman. Some studies have estimated the fuel cost — mostly the cost of electricity and a small amount of gasoline — would be equivalent to about $1 a gallon, said Cantwell. Automakers, lobbying hard against the fuel economy provision in the Senate bill, expressed continued concern Friday about their ability to meet the new requirements without changing the mix of cars they will be able to provide in the showrooms of 2020. “There’s no way you can get those numbers without a dramatic shift in consumer choice,” insisted Mark LaNeve, General Motors’ vice president of North America sales, service and marketing. “We don’t know how it’s attainable.”

NOT IN THE GENES: Studies have shown that only one in 10 women who develop breast cancer inherits a defective gene from her parents. This means that in 90 percent of breast cancer cases studied, external synthetic chemicals contributed to the development of the cancer.

Research finds pollution linked to breast cancer Dear EarthTalk: Is there any proof linking human breast cancer to exposure to chemicals in the environment? Or do researchers think most cases of breast cancers are genetically inherited?

— Bettine Carroll, New York, NY

A GROUNDBREAKING RESEARCH STUDY COORDINATED by the non-profit Silent Spring Institute and

recently published by the American Cancer Society found that synthetic chemicals have likely played a large role in the rising incidence of breast cancer throughout the world over the last half-century. The study identified 216 man-made chemicals — including those found in everyday products like pesticides, cosmetics, dyes, drugs and gasoline (and diesel exhaust)—that have been shown to cause breast cancer in animals. Researchers believe these substances, many of which “mimic” naturally occurring hormones once inside the body, are also to blame for the increasing prevalence of human breast cancer. According to epidemiologist Devra Lee Davis of the University of Pittsburgh’s Graduate School of Public Health and one of the lead researchers on the new study, the more hormones cycling through a woman’s body during her lifetime, the more likely she is to develop breast cancer. Synthetic chemicals that mimic hormones magnify the risk, as the body doesn’t know the difference between its own real hormones and other introduced chemicals. Only one in 10 women who develop breast cancer inherits a defective gene from their parents, Davis adds, meaning that in 90 percent of breast cancer cases studied, external non-genetic agents (e.g. synthetic chemicals) contributed to the development of the cancer. Another telling clue is the fact that the breast cancer risk of adopted children parallels the risk of the family they grew up in, not that of their biological family, as

proven by analyzing medical records from Scandinavian countries that keep detailed registries following people from birth to death. “What we understand is that if cancer runs in your family it could be because your family had similar eating patterns, similar lifestyle patterns as well as lived in the same area,” says Davis. “It’s really important that we take another look at…the kinds of chemicals that we are using everyday,” she adds. “We think that there are alternatives that can be used.” The U.S. government has been reluctant to institute new restrictions on the production of highly profitable synthetic chemicals, but European regulators are taking the issue very seriously. The European Commission’s new Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) Program calls on chemical manufacturers selling anywhere in Europe to re-register and re-evaluate the potential health hazards—including cancer risks—of their products. Environmental and public health advocates hope that American chemical companies will follow that lead with chemicals sold here. In the meantime, consumers can help prevent cancer by buying and eating organic foods, avoiding pesticides and other synthetic chemicals whenever possible, using nonplastic containers to reheat and store foods (some plastics are thoughts to leach cancer-causing chemicals into food when heated), and supporting government regulation and more research on synthetic chemicals and their effects.

Air board tries to comply with feds BY NOAKI SCHWARTZ I Associated Press Writer LOS ANGELES With looming deadlines to clean up the country’s dirtiest air, California air regulators are expected to approve a strategy they say will allow the state to meet federal clean air standards. The state Air Resources Board and local air pollution control districts have been developing a plan on how to meet new federal air quality standards for ozone and airborne fine particles, which have been blamed for causing asthma and aggravating other respiratory ailments. On Friday, the board will vote on the current draft of this plan, which is due to the Environmental Protection Agency this month. Environmentalists and local regulators, however, say the current draft does not go far enough and will not clean up the air in the next 15 years. And this, they say, will make Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s plan to cut air pollution in half by 2010 a hollow promise. “The best way to encapsulate this is a baby born today will not be breathing clean air until they graduate from high school,” said Tim Carmichael, senior policy director for the Coalition for Clean Air and the father of a toddler. “Not only are they not going to be breathing clean air until they graduate from high school, there’s a significant chance they’ll develop asthma from air pollution.” State officials disagree. “We’re confident we will meet federal deadlines,"’ said Air Resources Board spokeswoman Karen Cesar. “It’s a very aggressive and ambitious plan” The Clean Air Act gives federal and state regulators

authority over mobile sources of pollution such as cars and ships, while local air districts oversee stationary sources including power plants. The law requires areas with unhealthy level of ozone, carbon monoxide and particulate matter to develop plans explaining how they will meet federal air quality standards. Elements of these plans are developed by local air districts, which are then forwarded to the state board for review and approval. Last week state regulators approved a plan asking the federal government for an 11-year extension to bring the San Joaquin Valley region in line with current ozone standards. A decision about a similar proposal, which would give the south coast air basin a three-year extension to meet ozone standards, has been postponed until the fall. Sam Atwood, a spokesman for the South Coast Air Quality Management District, said the biggest problem with the state’s plan is that it falls short of achieving the fine particulate standard by 63 tons of nitrogen oxide emissions per day in the south coast air basin alone. Nitrogen oxide emissions are an important element in particulates. Atwood said the district outlined a plan that would allow the state to make up for the shortfall that includes changes to the vehicle smog check program, reducing ship emissions and greater turnover of heavy duty truck fleets. State regulators, however, believe the local agency needs to do more to deal with pollutants from wood-burning fireplaces and charbroiling at restaurants, he said. “We think there’s no reason for delay,” Atwood said. “We’re urging them to adopt our plan.”

RARE AIR: State officials hope new federal guidelines will improve the air quality of notoriously smoggy Los Angeles.

Energy companies find their future tied to bird BY MATTHEW BROWN Associated Press Writer

DECKER, Mont. A delicate dance is playing out on the sage flats of the West, a lopsided coupling of billion-dollar energy companies and a skittish ground bird prone to flee at first sight of a drilling rig. If the bird, the greater sage grouse, lands on the endangered species list as some propose, that could put the brakes on the oil and gas activity surging through Wyoming,

Utah, Colorado and Montana. So during spring breeding, companies working some of the nation’s richest gas fields let rigs go idle for months at a time rather than risk interrupting sage grouse mating rituals. Roads to oil and gas wells are rerouted to skirt the bird’s territory. Power lines are buried to deny hunting perches to grouseeating raptors. If those measures don’t work, some companies are pledging tens of millions of dollars to recreate sage grouse habitat. But as another breeding season ends this

month and rigs again roll through the sage, a chorus of federal and university biologists and state officials say the companies’ grouse conservation efforts are failing. With decades of drilling still planned, they say the industry must either redouble conservation or risk pushing sage grouse off the landscape. Other forces also factor into the bird’s decades-long decline — from cattle grazing and urban sprawl that pummeled once-vast sage brush expanses, to drought and West Nile virus outbreaks that hit the bird directly.

MOMENT OF TRUTH: Voters cast their ballots during a recent election. The City Council is currently exploring a possible increase in the amount an individual can give to a candidate or organization.

Contribution limits reviewed FROM CONTRIBUTIONS PAGE 1 one can give to independent committees, a practice that has been challenged in court. City Attorney Marsha Moutrie sparked the discussion when she informed the council about existing cases that have struck down similar limits on contributions because the $250 limit, in place since 1992, was deemed to be too low for candidates to effectively finance their campaigns. Moutrie said raising the limit by $100 or so would help avoid any legal entanglements, especially if the council decides to restrict contributions to independent expenditure committees. Under local law, people are prohibited from giving more than $250 to any candidate, committee controlled by a candidate and any uncontrolled committee, such as Santa Monicans for Renters Rights (SMRR) and Santa Monicans for Sensible Priorities, two independent committees that played a significant role in the last election. For years, SMRR has complained about the City Attorney’s reluctance to enforce the law as they watched other committees accept checks in excess of $15,000 or more. Moutrie, admitting that she had made a mistake during a public forum on the electoral process, said Tuesday that indeed the law restricts contributions to independent committees, but that it hasn’t been enforced because existing case law makes it problematic. She said that if the council were to raise the $250 limit, then perhaps they could restrict contributions to independent committees without drawing too much attention or opposition. “We really think that you should give serious consideration to increasing the contribution limit in Santa Monica, because there is a growing body of case law that strikes down contribution limits that are so low they limit the candidates’ ability to get the word out,” Moutrie said. Mayor Richard Bloom agreed, saying an increase was long overdue given increases in postage and printing costs as well as fees charged by campaign consultants. “I do believe that we should have a modest increase, because it hasn’t been indexed over all these years,” Bloom said. “If we raised it to $300 and indexed it in the future, it would be a step in the right direction.”

Others weren’t as enthusiastic, including former Mayor Denny Zane, co-founder of SMRR, Santa Monica’s ruling political party which spends thousands of dollars each election cycle supporting candidates for public office. Zane said that the $250 limit has not stopped candidates from raising over $100,000 during recent elections. By not enforcing the limit on independent committees, Zane said inaction has breed “cynicism in the body politic” and that is where efforts should be focused. “We should make sure we are enforcing the law so the community doesn’t feel cynical about city staff or the council’s intentions,” Zane said. Considering that the agenda item wasn’t discussed until midnight, three members of the council were not present at the time of its presentation; Mayor Pro Tem Herb Katz, and Council members Bob Holbrook and Bobby Shriver. Bloom suggested that the item be discussed earlier during the meeting and that nothing specific should be approved until the absent members had an opportunity to hear the specifics of the plan. It just so happens that the three members absent are not aligned with SMRR while the four members who were on the dais have been supported by the influential, independent committee. As far as public financing, many speakers threw their support behind such a plan and one group, Vote 4 Santa Monica, presented its own framework. Council member Pam O’Connor raised serious questions about public financing, such as where would the money to fund such a program come from. She also had concerns about how many signatures had to be collected in order for someone to qualify for public money. If the threshold is set too high, that could discourage those who are running for the first time and do not have the connections seasoned politicos do. If the threshold is set too low, then anybody could qualify and costs would skyrocket, she said. “We talk about unmet capital needs, we can’t hire staff, we have limited resources…,” O’Connor said. “We have to figure out how it will be paid for.” kevinh@smdp.com

Bluth comes from family of entertainers FROM CP PAGE 3 of vocabulary words you’re working on, it’s not that useful.” The site launched in January and now has a client list of about 60 people. But Bluth’s pride and joy, the project he has been working on for more than a year, is The Monkey Zone, an online tutoring service for young children. Geared toward supplementing elementary school education, The Monkey Zone offers lessons in geography, arithmetic vocabulary and music. Bluth created the site in entirety, from the content to the animation, drawing on his family background in art. A tutor since the age of 16, Bluth was also able to draw on his experiences in teaching when developing the content. “That is what I like to do most, It’s an extension of being a teacher,” Bluth said. “I realized I sort of have a limited amount of students I can get to in a week.”

The lessons provided in the site go above the curriculum offered at most public elementary schools, Bluth said, such as chemistry and music, teaching students molecule names, how to read chords and build scales. The lessons are all interactive, making the learning process enjoyable for the student. The site is set to launch in mid-July, at which point Bluth plans to go back and work on developing MZ Language Review to add more features. Growing up in Santa Monica surrounded by a musical community, coming from a family of animators and entertainers, Bluth has taken a completely different path from what he seemed destined to do. “I think Monkey Zone is what I’m supposed to be working on,” Bluth said. “The more and more I sink my teeth into it, the more I don’t get bored doing it.” melodyh@smdp.com

City Council is a punctual bunch FROM COUNCIL PAGE 1 there’s a little leeway there. The only thing is that when there are not enough (council members) there, items are delayed, and that can be frustrating.” Former Councilman Kelly Olsen, who served from 1990 to 1994, wasn’t so forgiving. “I think that if you made a commitment to be on the City Council, you shape your life around attending that meeting,” said Olsen, who makes an exception for those struggling with an illness. “This is a serious job with serious issues. If someone is not going to take the time to attend, then they should make room for somebody else.” At this point, a change doesn’t seem necessary. A review of council meetings dating as far back as 1989 shows that attendance really isn’t an issue, but being tardy is. Out of 656 meetings, Councilman Ken Genser, who has struggled recently with health problems, has only missed 25, or 4 percent or meetings. He has been late for 54 meetings, or 8 percent. Mayor Pro Tem Herb Katz, an architect with an office just north of Culver City, has the most absences, with 23 out of 208, or 11 percent (this is not counting Katz’ first stint on the council, in which he served from 1984 to 1992). He was late to meetings, which are supposed to begin at 5:45 p.m., 17 times, or 8 percent of the time. Mayor Richard Bloom, an attorney working in Santa Monica, was absent and tardy only six times in 261 meetings, or 2 percent. Councilmember Pam O’Connor, who works in historical preservation and serves as the vice chair of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority for L.A. County, has missed 28 meetings out of 418, or 7 percent, and has been late to 58 meetings, or 14 percent. Councilman Bob Holbrook has an impressive attendance record, having missed only 26 meetings out of 580, or 4 percent. However, when it comes to getting to City Hall on time, Holbrook has the second worst

record, arriving late 20 percent of the time. Having worked in downtown Los Angeles for much of his time on the dais, Holbrook, a pharmacist, said it was a challenge to get to downtown Santa Monica in 45 minutes, but ever since he cut back his hours, he hasn’t been late. “If I missed 26 meetings, that’s not bad,” Holbrook said. “I think that’s less than two a year… Now that I’m working part time and my children are all grown, you can find more time to do things, but still my wife and I both have elderly relatives and we are attending to their needs. So, no matter what phase of life you’re in, you are always going to have commitments and you must try to adjust.” For Holbrook, being present is important, more so during the early days of his career when he often found himself in the minority. If he was not on the dais, he felt as if a significant portion of the city was not being represented. Holbrook has been criticized for leaving meetings earlier (something which was not examined by the Daily Press) and he understands those concerns, but there are times when he just can’t make it through the whole session, which can go on until 1:30 a.m. or longer. “I try to stay to the bitter end,” Holbrook said. “But (at the last meeting) I was sitting there and almost fell asleep. I can’t fall asleep at a meeting, so I felt it was best that I go home before I fall asleep driving home.” The freshest face on the dais is Councilman Bobby Shriver, who has served on the council for just over two years. Shriver has the second highest absentee rating at 8 percent, and has been tardy more often than any other member with 26 late arrivals out of 119 meetings, or 22 percent. Shriver’s excuse could be considered a good one. He’s trying to help families in Africa devastated by HIV/AIDS. Through the RED campaign, which Shriver created along with rock star Bono, more than $12 million has been raised and distributed, funding treatment programs in African nations.

I THINK THAT IF YOU MADE A COMMITMENT TO BE ON THE CITY COUNCIL, YOU SHAPE YOUR LIFE AROUND ATTENDING THAT MEETING.’ Kelly Olsen, Former councilman “I do the best that I can to balance all of my commitments,” Shriver said from Switzerland where he was attending a conference on the Global Fund, which was established in 2002 by world leaders to dramatically increase resources to fight three of the world’s most devastating diseases: AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. “The bottom line is you do the best you can, and honestly, I don’t think people expect us to be there 100 percent of the time because it is really a volunteer gig and people have day jobs,” Shriver said. “I try to schedule trips around meetings, and that has been tough. In my daytime gig there are certain meetings I just can’t miss. I work very hard to be diligent and make as many meetings as I can. I know I am doing my best.” The councilman with the best attendance record is Kevin McKeown, who can often be seen riding his bike from on event to another, whether it be a conference on the California Incline or a Planning Commission meeting. McKeown admits he’s in a better position than others on the council because he works close by at the school district and has fewer family commitments, however, he said it all comes down to his dedication to the job and the respect he has for residents and their decision to elect him to public office. “I consider it an honor to serve Santa Monica on the City Council, and I try to consistently show up, pay attention and act from my heart as well as my head,” McKeown said. “Meetings and workshops whether of the council, our boards and commissions, or our neighborhood groups and service organizations, are where I get to hear residents’ con-

cerns and contributions live and unmediated.” And since he works in the city, “I’m not wasting my life on a freeway commute.” Attendance raises questions regarding the council’s duties and responsibilities. There have been debates about whether or not to pay council members more so they can quit their day jobs, or break up the city into council districts so members are able to focus on particular areas of town instead of having to be concerned with the entire city. Others have called for more staff to help members answer e-mails and respond to requests from the public. Times have changed considerably since the day the city charter was adopted in 1947, and council members face more pressures than ever before; something to consider when looking at attendance, said Nat Trives, a former mayor who served on the council from ‘71 to ‘79. “There are a lot of issues these members have to deal with that we never had to consider when I served, much larger budgets and more responsibilities,” Trives said. “Then you have to factor in increases in traffic. It’s just a different city than it was 30 years ago. They’ve got a lot on their plates.” That said, Trives believes council members need to be punctual. A missed meeting here and there won’t hurt, just as long as it doesn’t become a habit. “Those who run for council have to consider the commitments they have in their personal lives and see if they can dedicate the time it requires to be a public official,” Trives said. “Not many people can do that.” kevinh@smdp.com

Open doors, Sagittarius

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

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

★★★★ How you see a situation and how you deal with a key associate could color events. Gain understanding and growth through conversations. You might see the confusion that lies in misinterpreting each other’s words. Tonight: With a special friend.

★★★★ You might want to do something very different from in the past. An older associate might be difficult to pry open. Don’t make assumptions about others’ actions. They might not be what they seem. Lighten up. Tonight: Pay a bill, then relax.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

d

★★★★ Others claim their power and decide to play umpire. Since you cannot affect others and can only control yourself, focus on your priorities. Imagine more, and share ideas with a trusted associate.! Tonight: In the whirlwind of life.

★★★★★ How you view a changeable situation, or that which is difficult, can help others. Somehow you take a positive attitude in the midst of confusion at work or within your immediate circle. Give yourself that same positive attitude. Tonight: Choose what would put a smile on your face.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

★★★ All work and no play really never works for Gemini. You would like to participate in other activities, but certain responsibilities call. Try infusing the must-dos into your life with more fun. How can walking the dog become a celebration? Tonight: Put your imagination to work.

★★★★ Any efforts to gain a greater perspective easily could flounder. Instead of pushing yourself into areas where you might not be able to succeed, focus on your immediate surroundings and the people in it. Tonight: Open doors rather than close them.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

★★★★★ You might want to do whatever is necessary to clear out a financial misunderstanding. Your perspective changes radically if you try to see where someone else is coming from. Listen rather than decide. Knowledge is your ally. Tonight: Sprinkle in some fun.

★★★★ Your creativity might be endless, though a partner could be a touch frightened by your imaginative brainstorming, especially with money. Share with this person how you evaluate risk in order to help him or her understand. Tonight: Be with who you want and do what you want.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

★★★ You come off far more stern than you realize. Enjoy yourself and be clear about what is going on. Observe and understand more. As you enter a period of greater understanding, you will be able to relax more. Tonight: Veg at home.

★★★★ As you break into new turf, many could be challenged by what goes down. You have the savoir-faire attitude to handle a lot and be direct. Understanding grows through greater insight. Tonight: Handle responsibilities.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

★★★★ You make inquiries while others might make judgments. How you see an adventure influences your decisions. Getting more facts will help. Don’t let negativity color your life. Let go of this tendency, if you can. Tonight: Catch up on a friend’s news.

★★★★ Examine what is going on in your immediate circle. Does someone need a hand? Your abilities to nurture and take a stand could ease someone’s discomfort. Don’t limit yourself by what you must do; accept a responsibility or two more right now. Tonight: Start thinking “vacation.”

Born Today

Happy Birthday!

Singer Carly Simon (1945)

You sparkle this year. Others note your unusual creativity, endurance and strength. Though known to be a touch moody at times, you will learn how to get past these somewhat difficult moments. Avoid spending too much time alone, and spruce up your life with activities and people you love. Be cautious with your finances, as money is your Achilles’ heel. If you are single, a relationship certainly wings its way into your life. Look to midwinter for meeting new people. In a sense you are getting to know each other again. SCORPIO knows how to make you laugh.

Dollars and cents The $25,000 a month in child support and household expenses that rapper 50 CENT pays to the mother of his 10-year-old son is not enough, says the boy’s mother, Shaniqua Tompkins. The rapper is “worth tens and tens of millions

of dollars,” said her attorney, Raoul Felder. The parents of young Marquise Jackson are wrangling over the issue in family court in this Long Island community, where 50 Cent arrived Friday in an armored SUV equipped with a

satellite dish. 50 Cent no longer needs to worry about the choice he famously expressed on a 2004 album — “Get Rich or Die Tryin’.” With his G-Unit record label, clothing line, ring tones and other enterpris-

‘Fitty’ in court fight over child

es, 50 Cent — whose real name is Curtis Jackson — reeled in an estimated $33 million in the past year, according to Forbes. He has sold more than 11 million albums and has a new album, “Curtis,” due out in September. His lawyer, Brett

Kimmel, called Tompkins “insatiable.” “Her demands keep escalating,” he told the Daily News. Closed-door hearings on the child-support case are scheduled to continue this coming week. ASSOCIATED PRESS

HYDE PIERCE ACTIVATES

Lennon boys bury hatchet DAVID HYDE PIERCE is helping start a campaign against Alzheimer’s disease, which he saw two family members suffer from. “I think the hardest thing in both cases, with my grandfather and with my dad, were the moments when they understood what was happening to them,” Pierce said on ABC’s “This Week” program in a segment that aired Sunday. “It’s a disease that takes your brain apart, a piece at a time. And it doesn’t stop till it kills you.” The longtime “Frasier” co-star said the Alzheimer’s Association’s Champions campaign aims to recruit one American for every person with Alzheimer’s. A Web site lets people sign up for events, make donations and buy T-shirts. More than 5 million people in the U.S. live with the disease, according to the association. “All we have to do is find a way to slow it down,” Pierce said. “We’re not trying to keep people from dying. We’re trying to keep people from dying this way.” AP

Half brothers JULIAN and SEAN LENNON have begun speaking to each other again. Their reconciliation follows Julian’s eight-year feud with Sean and Sean’s mother, Yoko Ono, the widow of the men’s father, Beatle John Lennon, the

New York Post reported in Sunday’s editions. The rift stemmed from comments Julian made about Yoko Ono, he told the Post. Julian’s mother is John’s first wife, Cynthia. “I thought it time to make big changes in my

own life,” Julian, 44, told the Post in what the paper said was his first interview since 1999. “Part of that has been to get Sean back into my life, because I love him so much.” After contacting Sean’s tour manager this year, Julian surprised his half

brother backstage after a show in Prague. “We just hugged and held each other,” Julian recalled. Julian joined Sean, 31, on the tour bus, sleeping on the floor and traveling through Croatia and Slovenia, he said. AP

Her Louis Vuitton is gone Rapper FOXY BROWN — who’s on probation for assault and facing a battery charge in a separate case — had another brush with violence over the weekend. But this time, she was the victim, police said. Four people teamed up to rob the racy rapper of a Louis Vuitton bag, $500 in cash and credit cards around 5:30 a.m. Saturday in the East New York section of Brooklyn, police said. Roshawn Anthony, 23, was arraigned Sunday on charges of robbery, assault and grand larceny, said Clinton Hughes, an attorney with Legal Aid who is representing Anthony. “She denies these charges,” Hughes said. Bail was set at $50,000 and her next court date was Thursday. Brown’s lawyer, state Sen. John Sampson, did not immediately return telephone and e-mail messages early Sunday. But Brown told the New York Post that the robbery never happened, and that she hadn’t been at the location police gave, near a public housing complex. “A lot of the time, people mistake me for someone else, or people always call in these false tips,” Brown told the newspaper outside her Brooklyn brownstone Saturday. Police said the rapper, whose real name is Inga Marchand, had indeed been attacked. Brown, 27, is known for her sexy out-

fits and steamy lyrics. Her albums include the platinum-selling “Ill Na Na” and “Chyna Doll.” She pleaded guilty in August 2006 to misdemeanor assault charges stemming from a fight with salon workers over payment for a manicure in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood on Aug. 29, 2004. She was sentenced in October 2006 to three years’ probation. Brown was charged with battery and resisting an officer with violence in Florida on Feb. 15, when police said she threw hair glue at a beauty shop employee when he asked her to leave because the shop was closing. That case is pending. The Florida case also brought more legal trouble in New York for Brown. She pleaded guilty in March to a probation violation for leaving New York without permission.

❚ While the California Assembly debated an open-hand-only spanking bill for parents this spring, the Bethel Baptist Church in El Sobrante continued to demand that spanking by flexible rod is the only punishment acceptable to God and that will produce wisdom in the child. No sturdier weapon may be used, nor the open or closed hand, nor even mere yelling, according to a church pamphlet cited by InsideBayArea.com for a May report. Said one parishioner-parent, "With my girls, the spanking relieved them of their guilt, which allowed them to be happy in a very short time afterward." Said another, "We disagree with timeouts. ... That's an attack on spanking." ❚ In April, Bishop Michael Babin, for 25 years a leader of Genesis Ministries International in Oceanside, Calif., was charged (along with his son) with beating a golfer unconscious after accusing the man of stealing his ball at a local course. (Two years ago, Babin was nominated for a Martin Luther King Jr. Civic Award.

Obituary RENÉ PEARCE (Eileen Alice McLellan) 1938-2007 René Pearce passed away June 11, 2007 in Los Angeles after a brief illness. Born "Eileen Alice McLellan" in Toronto, Ontario, she moved to the United States in 1959 and became an American citizen in 1967. René worked as an office manager and consultant, travelled to Mexico and Europe for work, and at one time worked at McConnell Air Force Base. She was a good cook, an avid reader and scuba diver and loved the outdoors. René was also a spiritual seeker who at different times studied Meditation, Logic, Objectivism, Zen Buddhism and Christian Science, among other philosophies. At times she lived and entertained in style and at other times she roughed it, living out of her car or on the street, where she befriended passers-by. Fiercely independent and reluctant to accept help from others, Rene was a generous soul who at one time sponsored underpriveleged teenagers and helped them to attend college. A long-time resident of Santa Monica, René spent most of the last two years living at the CLARE Foundation and at SAMOSHEL, then found an apartment for herself and her cat two months before she passed away. Friends describe René as a character, a chain-smoker who loved unfiltered Pall Malls, and a spitfire who didn't care what anyone thought of her, but who would tell you exactly what she thought of you. She described herself as a thinker and as a lover, and often said, "I am in my right place, but not in my perfect place." René is survived by her twin sister, Marlene Pappas, of Vancouver, BC, by her older brothers Jerry and Larry McLellan and her younger brother Bill McLellan, and by eight nieces and nephews and their children. There will be a Memorial Service on Saturday June 30 from 4-7 PM at Douglas Park, 2439 Wilshire Blvd. (between Chelsea Avenue & 25th Street) inSanta Monica. There is also a memorial website at http://renepearce.blogspot.com. Memorial contributions may be sent to the Santa Monica Public Library, 601 Santa Monica Boulevard Santa Monica, CA 90401, 310-458-8600. Please call 310-804-9498 with any other questions.
