Suicides on the rise BY KEVIN HERRERA Editor in Chief

THE GOTTA LOVE THE WEATHER ISSUE

DOWNTOWN The number of people who have taken their own lives in Santa Monica so far this year has reached a level not seen in recent years, leaving some to wonder if the economic downturn is responsible. Since the beginning of the year, there have been 20 suicide attempts within the city, 10 of which have been fatal, according to records released by the Santa Monica

Police Department. If an autopsy reveals that a woman found Wednesday morning just north of the Santa Monica Pier committed suicide, that number will rise to 11, well over the average, which is eight a year, said SMPD Sgt. Jay Trisler. In 2008, there were nine fatalities and 15 attempts. SMPD Chief Tim Jackman grew concerned when he saw the numbers and felt releasing the information would raise

awareness so that families could be more cognizant of any changes in a loved one’s behavior, as well as learn about services available in the area. “Just like any type of trend that we see, the chief wants the public to be made aware of it so that they can prevent them and identify the warnings signs,” Trisler, the SMPD spokesman, said in an interview last week with the Daily Press. “By releasing this SEE SUICIDES PAGE 11

MALIBU It’s rare to see Daria KobayashiRitch leave her house without her camera and the 17-year-old is known among her friends because of it. “If I don’t have my camera, I have my phone,” she said. “My friends know it too. If we’re going somewhere they never bring cameras because it’s like, Daria’s going to have it.” But don’t expect to find the typical photos of smiling teenagers at the beach or the movies on her computer. Kobayashi-Ritch, a junior at New Roads High School, conducts full photo shoots with her friends, artfully documenting their lives in a way most people her age wouldn’t. “We would set up different times where they would come over and dress up and just walk around the neighborhood and take pictures. A lot of my friends liked taking pictures with me because they liked my work,” she said. Even when she’s out with friends, they aren’t her only subject. “Her shots are great because she documents everything, not just friends. She actually documents the event,” said her mom Jane Kobayashi. The dedicated student and Malibu native also

Doctor’s lawyer says Jackson had pulse when discovered ANTHONY MCCARTNEY AP Entertainment Writer

LOS ANGELES Michael Jackson still had a faint pulse and his body was warm when his doctor found him in bed and not breathing, a lawyer for the doctor told The Associated Press on Sunday. Lawyer Edward Chernoff also said Dr. Conrad Murray never prescribed or gave Jackson the drugs Demerol or OxyContin. He denied reports suggesting Murray gave Jackson drugs that contributed to his death. Chernoff told the AP that Murray was at the pop icon’s rented mansion on Thursday afternoon when he discovered Jackson in bed and not breathing. The doctor immediately began administering CPR, Chernoff said. “He just happened to find him in his bed, and he wasn’t breathing,” the lawyer said. “Mr. Jackson was still warm and had a pulse.”

Chernoff said any drugs the doctor gave Jackson were prescribed in response to a specific complaint from the entertainer. “Dr. Murray has never prescribed nor administered Demerol to Michael Jackson,” Chernoff said. “Not ever. Not that day. ... Not Oxycontin (either) for that matter.” Paramedics were called to the mansion while the doctor was performing CPR, according to a recording of the 911 call. Medics spent three-quarters of an hour trying to revive Jackson. He was pronounced dead later at UCLA Medical Center. People close to Jackson have said since his death that they were concerned about his use of painkillers. Los Angeles County medical examiners completed their autopsy Friday and said Jackson had taken unspecified prescription medication. Murray was interviewed by investigators for three hours Saturday. His spokeswoman called Murray “a witness to this tragedy,” not a suspect in the death, and police

described the doctor as cooperative. Three days after the death of the King of Pop, celebrities descended on Los Angeles for what promised to be a spectacular celebration of Jackson’s life at the annual BET awards show. Media requests for the Sunday night show doubled following the death, and the red carpet was lengthened. It was not immediately clear whether any members of the Jackson family, who gathered at their Encino compound over the weekend, planned to take part. Previously announced performers including Beyonce and Ne-Yo, were working to overhaul performances they had planned for weeks so they could honor Jackson. Other stars tried to catch lastminute flights. A private pathologist hired by the Jackson family completed a second, private SEE JACKSON PAGE 13

CITY HALL A new truck is joining the Santa Monica fleet, a zero-emissions truck that will serve the Water Division. The first of its kind purchased in the United States, the ZeroTruck is the only all-electric truck on sale in the U.S. this year. All Santa Monica fleet vehicles are currently run on compressed natural gas, but the city continues to look for new sustainable vehicles, said Gil Borboa, water resources manager. “It’s keeping with our sustainability goals and our attempt to reduce emissions from all our fleet vehicles,” he said. The medium duty truck will be equipped with a Scelzi utility body, fully automated transmission, advanced lithium batteries, onboard battery charger and regenerative braking. It can run on electric power at a highway speed of 55 mph and will be used within the Water Division’s meter shop operations, the unit that performs meter reading, repairs and change outs, Borboa said. Electrorides Inc., the company that produces the truck, is based out of Southern California and is handling its delivery to Santa Monica through South Bay Truck Center in Carson. The base price for the vehicle is $130,000 but the price at which Santa Monica purchased it is unknown. news@smdp.com

EDITOR IN CHIEF Kevin Herrera

Editor:

On behalf of the almost 22 students who play football at Malibu High, I would like to thank Santa Monica parents and Harry Keiley, President of the Teachers Union, for agreeing to cut teachers and special education funding from their school’s budget so that Malibu High’s football team will have the necessary funds to play football under lights for eight nights this upcoming football season. A less enlightened school board might have abandoned this night football project after they had been notified by the California Coastal Commission that the intense night lighting needed for nighttime football was prohibited in Malibu’s Coastal Zone. The official notice the school board received from the City of Malibu earlier this month informing them that their night football lighting project was prohibited under Malibu Building Codes might have convinced other school boards to reconsider. This school board, flush with funds approved by the Santa Monica parents and teachers, ignored both of these notices and doubled down on their commitment to nighttime football at Malibu High. The SMMUSD Board of Education had already committed over $125,000 of general fund monies for consultants, biological and lighting studies for this Malibu High football night lighting project. At their June 25 meeting the school board committed a minimum of another $100,000 to $150,000 needed to fight the Coastal Commission, the City of Malibu and an opposition group of Malibu residents to make their dream of eight nights of football under the lights a reality. Once again, to the teachers and parents in Santa Monica, we say thank you. Go Malibu Sharks football!

Treesavers improve while SMRR becomes more rude

RECEIVED

AN

E-MAIL

FROM

regular ”My Write” reader Helen Auerbach. She had a question about the former Berkshire skilled nursing care facility at 2602 Broadway recently acquired by Community Corporation of Santa Monica for redevelopment into a new, public-housing project. Auerbach asked me how to save the very beautiful trees on the property before they were cut down prior to new construction. I referred Helen to Santa Monica Treesaver activist Susan Hartley because I knew she’d respond to Ms. Auerbach’s concerns. Auerbach reported: “Susan connected me with the Treesaver organization who sent representatives to both neighborhood meetings (on the project). At the first meeting, they were able to give some very constructive input to the developer about how trees may be saved. At the second meeting, the proposal had been modified to save several more trees and a plan had been made to work with landscaping firms and to re-locate some of the other trees … . “I was quite impressed with how Treesavers, quietly but persistently and in a very courteous way, was able to bring this improved situation about. Cosmo Bua of Treesavers was at one of the meetings. He is excellent and made constructive suggestions. They will work with him to figure out how to dispose of trees they can’t use.” Regular readers know “I call ‘em the way I see ‘em.” With one of Treesavers’ founders having “resigned” to angle for a seat on the city’s new Tree Task Force — thus bringing new meaning to “working both sides of the street” — the grassroots organization seems to be turning a new leaf. It seems that goofy self promotion has yielded to solid and credible community and environmental advocacy. The issue with CCSM’s developments is that the city-affiliated public housing builder is not required to respond to citizen suggestions. The only city commission with any authority over a CCSM project is the Architectural Review Board, which can approve color, materials, landscaping plans and other cosmetics, but can’t change more important aspects such as height, massing, density or parking which is all worked out behind the scenes with city staff. And with the “flexibility” allowed by code, many of ARB’s recommendations can be altered. Treesavers and neighbors will have to watch the 2602 Broadway project and hold CCSM to their promises to save as many trees as possible. COMMUNITY MEETINGS ON HOUSING PROJECTS TURN SNARKY

The directors of Friends of Sunset Park neighborhood group sent a detailed memo to CCSM Executive Director Joan Ling listing numerous concerns about its pending public housing project at 2802 Pico Blvd.

Ling responded to FOSP that, after hearing comments from neighbors at the first (June 3) public meeting on the project, she had directed its architects to redesign the project with fewer units, more height modulation, more step backs and setbacks and make other changes. Additional concerns would be addressed after the June 24 public meeting (last week). In the meantime, I’ve heard things got rather testy at a neighborhood meeting on CCSM’s 2602 Broadway housing project. Comments were made about how unattractive some of CCSM’s projects were. A meeting attendee e-mailed me that the Santa Monicans for Renters’ Rights paid point person pushing affordable housing chided everyone. “We’re lucky to be involved in discussions as it’s private property and they (CCSM) didn’t have to ask us at all,” he said. Condescending. But, not surprising. This same SMRR organizer also showed up at Thursday’s meeting on 2802 Pico. Supposedly, he spoke out of turn, bullied and shouted over people. I wanted more information, so I called SMRR’s phone number — registered to SMRR treasurer, Roger Thornton. A male voice answered, “Who’s this?” When I said, “Bill Bauer, Daily Press,” he responded, “I don’t talk to the press” and hung up. Apparently, rudeness runs in the SMRR family as does stonewalling the public’s right to know what the city’s leading political organization is really up to. LAUSD TO EXPO: STREET LEVEL LIGHT RAIL IS UNSAFE

Despite Santa Monica’s misdirected support of Expo Light Rail tracks down the middle of Colorado Avenue for some 14 blocks, the board of the Los Angeles Unified School District last week unanimously opposed the design of the same Expo Light Rail line because it would also pass near a number of West Los Angeles elementary schools at grade. Citing concern for student safety, LAUSD board members said they couldn’t support Expo unless the safety hazards of operating trains at street level near schools were addressed and suggested employing legal options to remedy their concerns. The LAUSD’s resolution noted that Metro’s similar Blue Line, (Los Angeles to Long Beach) with its street-level crossings, has become the nation’s deadliest light-rail line. No worries here. City politicians, bureaucrats, Santa Monica College and public and private school administrators, students and parents all eagerly endorsed Colorado’s atgrade alignment at recent public hearings — a route that runs just a couple hundred feet from Crossroads School’s campus.

Send comments to editor@smdp.com

Know your rights or lose them “MOST CITIZENS,” WRITES COLUMNIST

Nat Hentoff, “are largely uneducated about their own constitutional rights and liberties.” The following true incident is a case in point for Hentoff ’s claim. A young attorney, preparing to address a small gathering about the need to protect freedom, especially in the schools, wrote the text of the First Amendment on a blackboard. After carefully reading the text, a woman in the audience approached the attorney, pointed to the First Amendment on the board and remarked, “My, the law is really changing. Is this new?” The woman was a retired schoolteacher. For more than 200 years, Americans have enjoyed the freedoms of speech, assembly, and religion, among others, without ever really studying the source of those liberties, found in the Bill of Rights — the first 10 amendments to our U. S. Constitution. A short summary of the first 10 amendments shows how vital these freedoms are. The First Amendment protects the freedom to speak your mind and protest in peace without being bridled by the government. It also protects the freedom of the media, as well as the right to worship and pray without interference. The Second Amendment guarantees “the right of the people to keep and bear arms.” This is one of the most controversial provisions of the Bill of Rights. Indeed, there are those who claim that gun ownership in America should be restricted solely to the police and other government officials. America was born during a time of martial law. British troops stationed themselves in homes and entered property without regard to the rights of the owners. That is why the Third Amendment prohibits the military from entering any citizen’s home without “the consent of the owner.” There’s a knock at the door. The police charge in and begin searching your home. They invade your privacy, rummaging through your belongings. You may think you’re powerless to stop them, but you’re not. The Fourth Amendment prohibits the government from searching your home without a warrant approved by a judge. But what about other kinds of invasions? Your telephone, mail, computer and medical records are now subject to governmental search. You cannot be tried again after having been found innocent. The government cannot try you repeatedly for the same crime, hoping to get the result they want. It’s one of the legal protections of the Fifth

Amendment. The Sixth Amendment spells out the right to a “speedy and public trial.” An accused person can confront the witnesses against him and demand to know the nature of the charge. The government cannot legally keep someone in jail for unspecified offenses. Property ownership is a fundamental right of free people. In a legal dispute over property, the Seventh Amendment guarantees citizens the right to a jury trial. Like any other American citizen, those accused of being criminals have rights under the Constitution as well. In some countries, the government abuses what they see as disloyal or troublesome citizens by keeping them in jail indefinitely on trumped-up charges. If they cannot pay their bail, then they’re not released. The Eighth Amendment is, thus, similar to the Sixth — it protects the rights of the accused. These are often the people most susceptible to abuse and who have the least resources to defend themselves. This amendment also forbids the use of cruel and unusual punishment. The framers of our Constitution were so concerned about civil liberties that they wished to do everything conceivable to protect our future freedom. Some of the framers opposed a bill of rights because it might appear that these were the only rights the people possessed. The Ninth Amendment remedied that by providing that other rights not listed were nonetheless retained by the people. Our rights are inherently ours, and our government was created to protect them. The government does not, nor did it ever, have the power to grant us our rights. Ours is a federal system of government. This means that power is divided among local, state and national entities. The Tenth Amendment reminds the national government that the people and the states retain every authority that is not otherwise mentioned in the Constitution. Congress and the President have increasingly assumed more power than the Constitution grants them. Having stood the test of time, there is little doubt that the Bill of Rights is the greatest statement for freedom ever drafted and put into effect. In the end, however, it is the vigilance of “we the people” that will keep the freedoms we hold so dear alive. Therefore, know your rights, exercise them freely or you’re going to lose them. John W. Whitehead is founder and president of The Rutherford Institute.

Fresh coat of insulation Dear EarthTalk Do insulating paints actually insulate and save energy? If they do, are they environmentally friendly to use?

PAINT ADDITIVES THAT CLAIM INSULATING

qualities have been marketed since the late 1990s, but energy research organizations have not confirmed their insulating value. For its part, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) does not recommend using paints or coatings in place of traditional bulk insulation. “We haven’t seen any independent studies that can verify their insulating qualities,” the agency reports. The federal government does rate roofing paint for its energy efficiency, but such findings only take into account a substance’s ability to reflect heat off the roof — not its insulating properties per se — to keep the building cooler. According to the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the use of so-called insulated paints is in most cases “difficult to justify on the basis of savings in energy costs alone.” Meanwhile, the nonprofit EnergyIdeas Clearinghouse, a partnership between Washington State University and the nonprofit Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance, found that under ideal circumstances insulating paints can achieve a “reduction in heat gain” of around 20 percent on freshly-painted sun-exposed walls, but notes that such walls will only face direct sunlight for a limited part of even the clearest summer day. Also, the clearinghouse reports that “heat gain reductions…are significant only for sun-bathed surfaces” and that the “reflectivity of the painted surface generally declines considerably with time.” Alex Wilson of the website BuildingGreen.com is not a fan of insulating paints: “To say that there is a lot of hype about insulating paints…is an understatement,” he tells the website Treehugger.com. “The Internet is rife with claims of paints that dramatically reduce heat transfer — usually based on some technological magic spun off from NASA. While these products may have some relevance in the extreme conditions of outer space, manufacturers of paints containing [insulating additives] are making claims that defy the laws of physics…when they claim they can save significant energy in buildings.” Nevertheless, for certain applications, especially in concert with traditional forms of insulation underneath, insulating paint can help reduce energy expenditures and air

LAST LEVEL OF DEFENSE: Insulating paints should merely be the icing on the cake of an otherwise well-conceived plan to cut heating and cooling costs, and not be used in place of traditional bulk insulation.

conditioning bills accordingly. For those who want to forge ahead with insulating paint despite the limited benefits, some of the leading brands to look for include Insuladd, Hy-Tech, ThermaGuard and Eagle Coatings’ SuperTherm. Adding insulating paint should merely be the icing on the cake of an otherwise well-conceived plan to cut heating and cooling costs. Installing a traditional form of insulation would be the first defense. A reflective, radiant barrier on the roof structure in the attic also could offer significant help, according to the Florida Solar Energy Center. Thermal-pane windows and energyconscious practices will contribute to the effort. Finally, consider trees and other landscape shading, which the U.S. Department of Energy recommends as an effective way of passively cooling your home.

Immigrant law uproar threaten Newsom’s bid JULIANA BARBASSA Associated Press Writer

SAN FRANCISCO Recent uproar over San Francisco’s liberal-leaning policies toward illegal immigrants is threatening to derail two top city officials’ bids for statewide office as they work to appeal to more conservative voters. One month after Mayor Gavin Newsom announced his candidacy for governor, he came under fire for a loophole in the city’s long-standing sanctuary policy that allowed undocumented immigrant minors charged with crimes to not be deported. Instead, they were flown home or housed in the state at the city’s expense. The loophole became known after Edwin Ramos, of El Salvador, was accused of shooting a man and his two sons during a June 2008 traffic incident. Ramos, now 22, was charged as a minor with felonies, including a gang-related assault and an attempted robbery, but was never deported. Now District Attorney Kamala Harris, who is running for attorney general, faces scrutiny over a program she instituted that allowed a half-dozen illegal immigrants to be among a group of young drug offenders to undergo counseling and job training, thereby wiping their records clean. One program participant, Alexander Izaguirre, was accused of robbing a woman in July and running into her with an SUV, fracturing her skull. The Honduran immigrant’s robbery and assault trial was scheduled for the fall. Most Californians — 71 percent — believe illegal immigrants should be given a chance to keep their jobs and apply for legal status, according to an August 2008 survey by the Public Policy Institute of California. But voters who are sympathetic to the plight of hardworking immigrants may have very different views of those who commit crimes, said Tony Quinn, a California political analyst. “These are embarrassing incidents that tend to feed the impression that Newsom and Harris are outside the mainstream,” Quinn said. “It’s very hard to defend giving amnesty or sanctuary to people who are committing crimes.” Newsom, who said he hadn’t been aware of the loophole, moved quickly to change the city’s approach. San Francisco now turns over all undocumented minors arrested for a felony or misdemeanor to federal immigration authorities. He also ordered city officials to review all city policies affecting illegal immigrants. “Let me be clear: I will not allow our Sanctuary City status to be used to shield criminal behavior by anyone,” the mayor said in a statement this week. Garry South, a senior adviser in Newsom’s campaign, said the issue has seldom been brought up, but Kevin Spillane, a senior adviser to Poizner, said it would certainly come up for Newsom during the primary and the general election.

Newsom and Attorney General Jerry Brown are vying for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination, while former Rep. Tom Campbell, Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner and former eBay chief executive Meg Whitman are after the Republican spot. “If either one ends up in the general election in which immigration becomes a major issue, then this becomes a real problem for them,” said Dan Schnur, director of the University of Southern California’s Jesse M. Unruh Institute of Politics. “You can’t make an issue like this go away.” For Newsom, being connected in voters’ minds to the sanctuary policy might contribute to a perception that “if he doesn’t agree with a federal or a state law he doesn’t believe he should follow it,” Spillane, the Poizner adviser, said. Newsom faced similar criticism for directing the San Francisco clerk’s office in 2004 to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples in violation of state law. Those nuptials were later voided by the California Supreme Court. Harris, who was first elected in 2003 and re-elected in 2007, also might be perceived as a classic San Francisco liberal who is out of step with the mainstream California voter, Spillane said. Angela Chan, attorney with the Asian Law Caucus, a legal advocacy and civil rights group, cautioned against either candidate reacting too quickly to criticism over immigration policies at the risk of alienating their liberal base. Newsom and Harris “are also going to need the immigrant vote if they’re going to run for statewide office,” Chan said. “Just seeking that conservative vote is the wrong strategy in the long run.” Newsom’s campaign manager also warned that attacking the sanctuary policies might backfire in a state where most major cities — Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose, Oakland, among others — have similar ordinances. Dozens of civil rights and immigrant groups have criticized Newsom’s revamped policy and are asking officials to allow minors arrested for a crime to have a hearing before being turned over to immigration authorities. Chan said there was “a lot of concern over youth being turned over to immigration authorities at the booking stage and facing deportation for minor offenses.” Harris has changed the rules of the Back on Track program, which offers job training and counseling to young, first-time drug offenders and clears their records if they graduate, so that only drug offenders can participate with legal work authorization. Ace Smith, who is managing the district attorney’s AG campaign, believes voters would understand Harris’ idea is an innovative approach to public safety that combats the recidivism that is overcrowding California jails and prisons. “These are the kinds of programs California needs, and she’s going to stand proudly on her record of innovation,” Smith said.

New laws prod police, protect kids, push tax cuts ANDREW WELSH-HUGGINS Associated Press Writer

COLUMBUS, Ohio Government records will be more open in South Dakota, Florida is cracking down on illicit prescription drug sales and downing a cold one at the corner bar will be easier in Utah. New laws taking effect Wednesday reflect states’ concerns with holding police more accountable, expanding the use of DNA to solve crimes and offering certain tax breaks. July 1 is the effective date in many states for laws passed during this year’s legislative sessions. In others, laws take effect Jan. 1, or 90 days after passage. Some laws create new state responsibilities. Florida, the nation’s leader in illicit sales of addictive prescription drugs such as the painkiller OxyContin, will join 38 other states that have electronic tracking systems for such drugs. Critics say the new law isn’t strong enough and may infringe on patients’ privacy. California will require chain restaurants to disclose the calories on their standard menu items. In South Carolina, the unmarried biological fathers of children will have to register paternity claims with the state if they expect to preserve parental rights. Other laws will ease requirements. Utah will lift some of the nation’s strictest regulations limiting who can belly up to the bar. For 40 years, the state has considered bars to be private clubs that can grant admission only to members who have filled out an application and paid a fee, or to members’ guests. The system is being scrapped in an effort to lure tourists and make the state more appealing for businesses. In Ohio, truck drivers will finally be able to travel on most interstates at 65 mph, the same as cars. “It’s safer when everybody is trying to go the same speed,” said Larry Davis, president of the Ohio Trucking Association, which lobbied for the change. Some laws put extra mandates on police departments. SWAT teams in Maryland must report on their missions to the governor every six months and report whenever a SWAT team injures or kills a pet. The law was spurred by last year’s raid on a mayor’s house during which police killed the official’s two black Labradors. Police cleared the mayor and said he was victim of a scheme in which drug couriers drop deliveries at the homes of unsuspecting recipients to be picked up by somebody else later. While police departments support the law, they’re concerned that it lacks detail, from what constitutes a SWAT team to how long records will be kept.

“The law’s kind of vague about it,” said Larry Harmel, executive director of the Maryland Chiefs of Police Association. Minnesota is compelling police and sheriffs to start searching right away when adults disappear under suspicious circumstances. Some law enforcement agencies now wait 24 or 48 hours to look into such cases, since adults can choose to go away without telling others. The law is named for Brandon Swanson, a 19-year-old who disappeared last May after running his car off the road in rural western Minnesota. “We don’t want to waste law enforcement’s time, but on the flip side, in some of these situations it’s life and death,” said Minnesota state Rep. Marty Seifert. Elsewhere, states such as Florida, Michigan and Nevada will beef up their laws requiring suspects arrested for felonies — not just convicted criminals — to submit a DNA sample. Tax breaks abound. North Dakota will reduce taxes on income, champagne, and pull tab gambling tickets. Maryland will add domestic partners who co-own homes to the list of people exempted from the state inheritance tax. North Carolina will provide a series of new and expanded property tax breaks or deferrals to disabled veterans, the elderly and fishery owners. Washington is giving newspaper printers and publishers a 40 percent cut in the state’s main business tax. Several laws try to keep children and teens healthy and safe. Oregon will strengthen its existing anti-bullying law after a study found the state’s 2001 law was failing to stop namecalling, slurs and harassment, especially insults aimed at minorities, girls and gays. California will ban soda from high school cafeterias. Mississippi will require anyone 17 or younger to get written permission from a parent or guardian before using an indoor tanning facility. Parents must be present if the child is 13 or younger. South Dakota residents will gain better access to public records under a new law that follows the lead of most other states by assuming a record is public, but including a list of exceptions. For years, the state had one of the nation’s most restrictive laws, allowing access only to documents that an agency was required to keep. “Citizens do have a right to know what government is doing and it is important for them to have access to records,” said Sen. Dave Knudson of Sioux Falls. Concerns about Western water rights spurred a law in

Madoff ordered to cough up possessions TOM MCELROY Associated Press Writer

NEW YORK Bernard Madoff would be stripped of all his possessions under a $171 billion forfeiture order handed down only days before prosecutors seek to put the disgraced financier away in prison for the rest of his life. U.S. District Judge Denny Chin entered the preliminary order Friday, ruling that Madoff must give up his interests in all property, including real estate, investments, cars and boats. The forfeiture represents the total amount that could be connected to Madoff ’s fraud, not the amount stolen or lost, and the order made clear that nothing prevents other departments or entities from seeking to recover additional funds. A call to Madoff ’s lawyer, Ira Sorkin, after hours Friday was not immediately returned. In a court filing in March, Sorkin said the government’s forfeiture demand of $177 billion was “grossly overstated — and misleading — even for a case of this magnitude.” The 71-year-old Madoff pleaded guilty in March to charges that his exclusive investment advisory business was actually a massive Ponzi scheme. Federal prosecutors say Madoff orchestrated perhaps the largest financial swindle in history. Acting U.S. Attorney Lev Dassin, who released a copy of the order Friday night, plans to seek a 150-year prison term at Madoff ’s sentencing Monday. Sorkin has argued in court

papers for a 12-year term. According to Friday’s order, the government also settled claims against Madoff ’s wife. Under the arrangement, the government obtained Ruth Madoff ’s interest in all property, including more than $80 million-worth that she had claimed was hers, prosecutors said. The order left her $2.5 million in assets. The agreements strip the Madoffs of all their interest in properties belonging to them, including homes in Manhattan, Montauk, N.Y., and Palm Beach, Fla., worth a total of nearly $22 million. The Madoff ’s must also forfeit all insured or salable personal property contained in the homes. Other seized assets include accounts at Cohmad Securities Corp., valued at almost $50 million, and at Wachovia Bank, valued at just over $13 million, and tens of millions of dollars in loans extended by Madoff to family, employees and friends. The judge’s order also authorized the U.S. Marshals Service to sell the Manhattan co-op, properties in Montauk and Palm Beach and certain cars and boats. At the time of Madoff ’s arrest, fictitious account statements showed thousands of clients had $65 billion. But investigators say he never traded securities, and instead used money from new investors to pay returns to existing clients. Prosecutors said the total losses, which span decades, haven’t been calculated. But 1,341 accounts opened since December 1995 alone suffered losses of $13.2 billion, they said.

Colorado allowing people to collect rain water for fire protection, animals and household use without fear of prosecution. It’s a touchy issue in the state, which does not import water from other states or regions and is forced by law to send it on to other states downstream. Not every law taking effect July 1 deals with important public policy. A new Florida measure allows state universities to create mausoleums to hold urns of ashes of devoted alumni. The legislation was requested by the University of Florida, where officials say they get calls about once a month from Gator alums who want to have their ashes spread on the school’s football field known as “The Swamp."

GRIM FIND: SMPD investigates an apparent suicide on Fourth Street early this year.

Recession may be root cause of suicides FROM SUICIDES PAGE 1 information we’re hoping to assist families in having that open dialogue and recognize that there is help out there.” While national statistics show that men take their own lives at a rate four times that of females, in Santa Monica that has not been the case. Of the 10 confirmed cases of suicide in 2009, seven involved women. Seven of the victims have been Caucasian, two Hispanic, and one Asian, according to police reports. Three used a firearm, one overdosed on drugs, three died by hanging, two by jumping from a tall structure, and one by a cut to the wrist or neck. The victims ranged in ages, from the 20s to 70-plus. The oldest was 91. In 2006, the latest year for which national statistics are available, there were 33,300 suicides in the U.S., or one suicide every 15.8 minutes, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Recent research has shown that suicide is on the rise nationally, particularly amongst middle-aged white women. A team at John Hopkins University in Baltimore found that the overall suicide rate rose .7 percent between 1999 and 2005, with the rate for white men rising 2.7 percent and for middleaged women, 3.9 percent. While there are no official statistics for 2007 or 2008, mental health providers believe the economic downturn could be responsible for the increase in calls suicide hotlines have received in the last few months. Calls to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline jumped 36 percent from 2007 to 2008, totaling 545,000 last year, said director John Draper. But callers were increasing before the economic collapse, and about half of the added calls in 2008 came from taking over a veterans suicide line, Draper said. Historically, suicide rates have shown no clear association with times of economic recession, although suicide rates did increase slightly during the years of the Great Depression, according to the American Association of Suicidology. There is a clear and direct relationship between rates of unemployment and suicide, the association said, as the feeling of hopelessness intensifies. The peak rate of suicide in 1933 occurred one year after the total U.S. unemployment rate reached 25 percent of the labor force. Unemployed individuals have between two and four times the suicide rate of those employed. Trisler said those who have committed suicide did so because of problems with

family and friends or a significant other. One was terminally ill while another reported being out of work. Dr. Stephen Sideroff, a clinical psychologist with the Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center and clinical director of the Moonview Sanctuary, a treatment center in Santa Monica, said he has seen an increase in the number of people seeking help and believes the economic recession is partly responsible. “They may not identify finances as the main reason, but what you get is a chain of events where there is more stress, fear and anxiety and this trains a person’s coping abilities so that people who are just managing to hang on will no longer be able to manage,” Sideroff said. “People who have been able to distract themselves by doing something that costs money may not be able to afford that outlet any longer. “Stress and financial difficulties lead to greater conflict.” There are warning signs that loved ones should be on the lookout for. If someone starts to withdraw from society and increase alcohol or drug use, seek help immediately, said Dr. Jeanette Raymond, a psychologist in Brentwood who specializes in managing emotions. “Most people believe that suicide happens when a person just wants to give up or doesn’t care anymore, but that isn’t necessarily true,” Raymond said. “People who attempt suicide, but don’t succeed, that is the motivation, to draw attention to themselves. Those who are serious do it as a way of expressing their power over their own life. They may feel that have lost control of their future because of the economy or some outside forces and they use suicide as a statement that they are in charge. “It’s the ultimate act of control.” There are numerous hotlines people can call if contemplating suicide. There are also clinics available for those who are in need of counseling, and that includes the family members of someone who is suicidal. The Didi Hirsch Suicide Prevention Center in Culver City is a trusted source for help, becoming the first center in the country to provide a 24-hour suicide prevention crisis line and use community volunteers to field calls. “They key is to say in contact with the person,” Sideroff said. “You need to replace those feelings of hopelessness, and help them see their mind is playing tricks on them. “You have to get them to understand that suicidal thoughts are temporary, but suicide is permanent.” kevinh@smdp.com

Exhibit draws nearly 100 guests FROM CP PAGE 1 works for her school yearbook, taking photos of every student in lieu of the standard class photos. In May she held an exhibit of her photographs Downtown, adorning the walls with the faces of people who have long been a part of her life. “That’s my mom,” Kobayashi-Ritch said as she explained her photos, which also included shots of her friends and hairdresser. The exhibit, held on May 23 in an empty office building, was the result of an independent study program through New Roads, located on the east end of town. Kobayashi-Ritch presented a proposal to the principal, asking to work on a photography project as a supplement to her regular high school courses. “Most people do a 40 page thesis paper. I asked to study photography,” she said. As a part of the program, she selected two professional photographers, Steve Nilsson and Jennifer Cheung, and drove every Saturday to their studio at the Brewery Arts Complex in downtown Los Angeles, learning to take and develop her own photos. “The most interesting thing for me about Daria is that she had really clear ideas about what she wanted to study,” Nilsson said. “She chose very interesting photographers to try

to emulate their work, which I thought was unusual for someone her age.” The concept for Kobayashi-Ritch’s independent study was the emulation of three photographers, working with different mediums and techniques to put together a collection of photographs. She studied the work of late 19th century photographer Julia Cameron Nash, using a toy camera with a plastic lens to achieve the effect of cameras from that time; contemporary Italian fashion photographer Paolo Roversi, shooting her models with a Polaroid camera and using only flashlights as lighting; and American portrait photographer Irving Penn, taking both close-up and full-length shots of seated models. The three varied techniques allowed Kabayashi-Ritch to experiment and discover her own personal style. “It was more of a way to figure out what I like to do, so I did all different cameras, all different lighting,” she said, citing the shoot using only flashlights as her favorite because it produced the most interesting results. “I like experimenting more and doing things so you look at the photo and you’re not like, oh, I know exactly what she did. It’s more like art.” At the end of her semester, KobayashiRitch had narrowed her hundreds of photos

down to a collection of 40 that she decided to show in an exhibit. “I originally wasn’t planning on doing a show, but I had so many photos and I was really happy with the outcome of it and tons of people were asking to see them,” she said. “The only thing I was going to do was just turn them in for a grade and I felt like that was kind of a waste.” The week before the exhibit Kobayashi-Ritch handed out flyers at school and invited her friends, family and models to view her work. “I was a little bit nervous about people not coming, but a lot of people came and I was just really happy with all the support,” she said of the more than 100 guests who came to see her project. Though she’s only 17, many people were

impressed with her level of skill. “I think people were surprised at how professional the photos were,” Jane Kobayashi said. “People came in and they couldn’t believe she was in high school.” Kobayashi-Ritch won’t be in high school much longer and the experience of creating her own exhibit has given her the confidence to consider studying art after she graduates. She plans on taking a trip to the East Coast this summer to visit schools. She credits the independent study project at New Roads as vital in helping her grow both technically and artistically as a photographer. “This year I learned a lot and the difference in photos was just amazing,” she said. news@smdp.com

Jackson’s doctor was with singer just before death FROM JACKSON PAGE 3 autopsy Saturday, the Los Angeles Times reported, citing unnamed people familiar with the case. A second autopsy can allow the family to get some information about a death almost immediately, including signs of heart, brain or lung disease or fresh needle punctures, said Dr. Michael Baden, a medical examiner not involved in the Jackson case. “Usually if it looks normal with the naked eye, it looks normal under the microscope,” said Baden, who recently performed a second autopsy on actor David Carradine. The Rev. Jesse Jackson said after visiting Michael Jackson’s family that the family still had unanswered questions about how he died. Los Angeles County coroner’s officials said their autopsy found no indication of trauma or foul play. But because of additional tests, an official cause of death could take weeks to determine. There was no word from the Jackson family on funeral plans. Many of Jackson’s relatives have gathered at the family’s Encino compound, caring there for Jackson’s three children. On Saturday, three of Jackson’s brothers — Jackie, Jermaine and Tito — where they walked the manicured grounds at Jackson’s Neverland Ranch and reminisced about his life. It is not clear what will become of the

ranch, which has been under renovations. Owen Blicksilver, a spokesman for the joint venture that owns the ranch and included Michael Jackson, said it was premature to discuss the future of Neverland. He said investor Thomas Barrack feels close to family members and wants to hear their thoughts on how best to honor Jackson’s memory. Blicksilver says Jackie, Jermaine and Tito Jackson were joined for lunch Saturday at the sprawling Santa Barbara County property by Barrack, who previously set up the joint venture with Michael Jackson after the singer nearly lost the ranch to foreclosure. A White House adviser said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that President Barack Obama had written to the Jackson family to express his condolences. In an interview that aired earlier Sunday, Jackson’s father said he does not believe stress over the intense series of concerts the King of Pop planned for his comeback led to his death. Joe Jackson also said he believes his son will be larger in death than he was in life. The patriarch of the Jackson 5 said he wished Michael Jackson were around to see the outpouring of affection since his death. “Michael was the biggest superstar in the world and in history,” Joe Jackson told Fox News Channel’s “Geraldo at Large.” “He was loved by everybody, whether poor or wealthy or whatever may be."

came alive in the second half Sunday with three comeback goals in a 3-2 win over the upstart United States in the Confederations Cup final. Luis Fabiano scored two of the goals and Lucio added the third in the 84th minute to give Brazil its second straight Confederations Cup title and third overall. It was all looking good for the Americans, playing in the men’s final of a FIFA tournament for the first time, in the first half when Clint Dempsey and Landon Donovan gave the team a 2-0 halftime lead. “You realize why these guys are worth so much at times like this, but it’s still disappointing,” Donovan said. “We are in the position where we don’t want respect, we want to win.” Brazil looked like a beaten team in the first 45 minutes, creating little and being constantly stymied by the United States defense and goalkeeper Tim Howard. Fabiano started the comeback in the 46th minute. The striker collected a pass from Ramires before turning and shooting past defender Jay DeMerit for his fourth goal of the tournament. He added a tournamentleading fifth to equalize in the 74th, heading in a rebound after Kaka’s cross was kicked against the crossbar by Robinho. “We gave up the first goal so early in second half,” United States coach Bob Bradley said. “We really put ourselves in a tough spot.” Lucio then delivered the decisive goal in the 84th, heading a corner from Elano past Howard.

Dempsey, who also scored in the 2-0 semifinal win over Spain, gave the Americans the lead in the 10th minute by redirecting a cross from Jonathan Spector. Donovan added the second by finishing off some nice passing play with Charlie Davies on a fast counterattack in the 27th. Spector started the unthinkable after only 10 minutes, running down the right and sending a low cross into the area. Dempsey, who had plenty of room to maneuver, raised his right leg and put just enough of a touch on the ball to alter the direction and send it past a diving Julio Cesar. Donovan then got possession at his own end shortly after Maicon had sent in a corner for Brazil from the right. The United States midfielder ran up the middle, passed to Davies and then reclaimed the ball from his teammate before beating Julio Cesar. The Americans appeared to get some luck in the 60th when Kaka headed a cross from Andre Santos to the near post. Howard stepped back into his goal and knocked the shot off the underside of the crossbar and then grabbed it safely in his arms. Kaka yelled at the referee and his linesman, arguing that the ball had crossed the line before Howard was able to get to it, and television replays appeared to show he was correct. Brazil has won eight matches in a row, and is unbeaten in 16. The five-time world champions also won the Confederations Cup in 1997 and 2005. And in 15 matches against the United States, the Brazilians have only lost once — a 1-0 result in the 1998 CONCACAF Gold Cup. In the third-place match, Spain fought back to beat host South Africa 3-2 after extra time in Rustenburg.

MLB

Mariners’ Beltre to have bone spurs removed THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LOS ANGELES Seattle Mariners third baseman Adrian Beltre will undergo surgery to have bone spurs removed from his troublesome left shoulder. Beltre’s non-throwing shoulder was operated on in September for the same reason and has given him severe pain all season. The two-time Gold Glove winner made his decision before Saturday night’s 5-1 victory over the Dodgers, and he could be sidelined for six to eight weeks. “I don’t think I’ll be able to help the team the way I want to because of the way I’m feeling right now,” said Beltre, who was 1 for 5. “It’s gotten to the point where it’s really painful. There were a couple of pitches tonight that I couldn’t get to because of the shoulder, so I think it’s probably better to go fix it and come back 100 percent.” Manager Don Wakamatsu said after the game that Beltre would be in the lineup again in Sunday’s series finale if he’s up to it. “He’s played with a lot of pain,”

Wakamatsu said. “He’s a guy who brings a lot of presence to our clubhouse and a lot of presence to that lineup. And over the last three or four weeks, he’s really started to swing the bat. So we’re going to miss him a lot.” Beltre, who also had surgery on his left thumb in September, is batting .259 with five homers and 30 RBIs. He’ll be going on the disabled list for the third time in his 12-year career and first time in five seasons with the Mariners. Beltre, a free agent at the end of the season, established career highs in 2004 with a .334 average, 121 RBIs and a major leagueleading 48 homers for the Dodgers despite playing the entire season with bone spurs in his left ankle. The home run total tied Mike Schmidt’s 1980 record for third baseman. He signed a five-year, $64 million with Seattle a few months later. Beltre was held out of last Sunday’s 9-3 victory at Arizona by Wakamatsu, and Xrays on Tuesday confirmed that the bone spurs were back. He was 0 for 4 in Seattle’s 82 loss on Friday night.

Garfield

By Jim Davis

ARIES (March 21-April 19) ★★★★ Make a conscious effort to allow others to dominate, as it is so natural for you to lead. Pressure builds on a personal level as well. Back down and allow others to work a situation the way they feel comfortable. Tonight: Sort through your options.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

★★★ Stay level and communicate. You might wonder which way to go with a difficult situation. Keep talks flowing, especially in an effort to find solutions. Stay centered by honoring your routine. Tonight: Get some extra R and R.

★★★ Your instincts carry you past a hassle. Your way of understanding a situation or moving a personal matter forward could be up for criticism. Tonight: Take a drive or walk to clear your mind.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

★★★★★ Keep conversations flowing, and encourage different opinions. Listen to news, and focus on facts instead of opinions. Let someone put in his or her two cents. Tap into your ingenuity and creativity. How you deal with a problem could change. Tonight: Act as if there is no tomorrow.

★★★★★ Zoom in and create what you want. Friends play a big role in events. You might want to pull back and do something very differently. Right now, the path is clear, but for how much longer is the question. Tonight: Zero in on what you want.

★★★★★ You smile, and others respond. For many, you prove to be a beacon, as there could be a lot of problems. A must appearance goes well, though you could be overwhelmed by your responsibilities. Tonight: As you like.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) ★★★★★ Listen to people directly, and try not to get too upset by what you hear or don't hear. Be willing to figure out what is lacking here, what is wrong and what you can do to change a situation. Your call and interest determine the end results. Tonight: Catch up on news.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

★★★★★ Work with individuals rather than groups. If you are having a problem, find the person it involves or who can help you. You could feel as if your imaginative ideas are not appreciated when solution-finding. Are they grounded? Tonight: Chat over dinner.

Happy birthday

★★★★★ While others are in a tizzy about this or that, you pull back and have a completely different perspective from many. Your way of finding solutions is often quite subtle. Tonight: Let your mind wander.

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

As a Moon Child, home and family play important roles this year -- even more so than usual. You want to evaluate and stay in touch with others more often. Friends also will play a strong role in your next year. They will be a source of support, but the same support could push you very hard. If you are single, you could meet someone through family or friends. This person feels more comfortable than many others have. If you are attached, the two of you will gain by relating more often with an eye to a specific goal. Working together to manifest this desire draws you closer. LIBRA can be quite soothing.

SHEPARD

■ Drivers Who Were Run Over by Their Own Cars: (1) A 21-year-old man in Santa Fe, N.M., inebriated, shifted into reverse, thinking it was “park,” and fell out the driver’s door (November). (2) A 52year-old man in Tobyhanna, Pa., ran over himself after falling out of his truck trying to reach the controls of the access fence at his gated community (May). (3) A 56-year-old woman in Santa Monica, Calif., was killed when she left her stalled car in “drive” while she crawled underneath to determine why it wouldn’t start. She accidentally triggered the starter with a screwdriver, and the car drove over her (May). ■ (1) According to a recent report in Britain’s Police Review Journal, the government’s “Intensive Alternatives to Custody” pilot program has recently assigned young offenders, in lieu of incarceration, to attend skill-building classes in gardening, fishing and learning how to apply for government benefits. (2) The U.S. Department of Justice, with British government cooperation, has been trying for 10 years now to extradite three al-Qaida operatives in British custody to stand trial in the 1998 U.S. embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania, but Britain’s legal system has permitted the suspects to stall with nearly endless bureaucratic tactics. Since the jihadists claim indigent status, all of the challenges are paid for by British taxpayers, with the current tab (according to a May Washington Post report) amounting to the equivalent of nearly $900,000.

TODAY IN HISTORY The Virginia state constitution was adopted, and Patrick Henry was made governor. The British Parliament approved the Townshend Acts, which imposed import duties on certain goods shipped to America. (Colonists bitterly protested, prompting Parliament in 1770 to repeal the duties on all goods, except tea.)
