THE TAKING THE WHEEL ISSUE

The greening continues City Council gives OK to Sustainable City Plan’s second phase BY MELODY HANATANI Daily Press Staff Writer

parking enforcement vehicles, the water conservation initiatives and solid waste diversion targets, the products of an aggressive plan aimed at making sustainability a regular component of city life. Half a dozen years after the creation of the Santa Monica Sustainable City Plan (SCP), environmental advocates laud the success of the ambitious eco-blueprint while remaining mindful that there is much work to be done. The City Council last week authorized

its staff to begin the second phase of an implementation program for the SCP, which was developed three years ago by the Sustainable City Task Force to begin carrying through various measures in eight goal areas identified in the plan, including resource conservation, environment and public health, and economic development. Those measures included hiring a communication sustainability liaison, which officials did with Traci Reitz who now serves as a point person between City Hall and various organizations, and the drafting of the Sustainable Local Economy, which should be completed later this year. The analysis will look at the current eco-

nomic makeup in Santa Monica, examining which industries are contributing to high quality jobs and which sectors are very resource intensive, such as energy and water. The report will also look at ways City Hall can help maintain the diverse economy for which Santa Monica is known, retaining and attracting those businesses that tend to be sustainable. “Some of the businesses that we have in the tourism sector are pretty energy and water intensive, however it is also a big part of the local economy and provides a big part of the city’s general fund,” Dean SEE SUSTAINABLE PAGE 9

SUNSET PARK Annemarie Kelleghan has literally grown up alongside the very students she tutors. The 17-year-old Sunset Park resident has spent the past five years as a volunteer tutor at the Fairview Branch Library pridefully watching young students progress along the way. “I’ve seen her grow from putting alphabet blocks in order to starting to act out voices when she’s reading aloud with me,” she said of one student. “The enthusiasm she picks up from me is really fun to watch.” Most recently, Kelleghan, a senior at Notre Dame Academy and a member of Westchester-based Troop 287, earned Girl Scouting’s highest award — the Gold Award. She created a series of tutoring aids — mostly multiple choice, true or false and writing exercises — to complement the library’s reading level system. “Even if they help just a couple of kids, it’s worth it,” Kelleghan said of the worksheets. “And I think they have.” Kelleghan revealed that she struggled with reading as a child — motivating her to become the library’s first teenage tutor.

Light approach gives Yahoo’s celeb site edge RYAN NAKASHIMA AP Business Writer

after just 12 days, “Transformers” shot past Disney and Pixar Animation’s “Up” to become the year’s highest-grossing movie. The sequel reunites human stars Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox with shape-shifting robots in a war against evil machines. “Ice Age,” the third installment in the cartoon franchise, brings back voice stars Ray Romano, Denis Leary, John Leguizamo and Queen Latifah as the gang of extinct animals encounter a lost world of dinosaurs underground. Since opening Wednesday, “Ice Age” has taken in $67.5 million. Other studios generally were tracking “Transformers” and “Ice Age” within a few hundred thousand dollars of each other. “It’s just so close,” said Bert Livingston, Fox distribution executive. “It all comes down to Sunday for us.We are elated to be in that rarefied

SANTA MONICA Think of the most popular brands in celebrity news, and you’ll probably come up with a small list that includes Entertainment Tonight, US Weekly and People. Consider the most successful celebrity news destinations online, and something else jumps to the top. For more than a year, one site has attracted more eyeballs than any other in the realm of celebrity gossip: Yahoo Inc.’s omg. With a dedicated staff of just five people, and more than a dozen shared with other Yahoo sites, the company has settled on a formula that Yahoo Media Group head Jimmy Pitaro calls “highly profitable,” though Yahoo won’t reveal details. The fact that Yahoo’s entertainment site outdraws rivals that aim to break news — such as TMZ.com, which broke the news of Michael Jackson’s death — helps illustrate that success online doesn’t always mean being first and having exclusives. It also marks a rare success for the struggling Internet portal, which has shed thousands of employees and shuttered several businesses, a process CEO Carol Bartz accelerated after being hired in January. While Bartz said at a shareholders meeting in June that she felt too many entertainment stories make Yahoo’s front page, Pitaro said she’s a solid supporter of the company’s media properties in general. Omg puts a light, positive spin on articles and other tidbits that mostly come from other news organizations such as Access Hollywood and The Associated Press. The vital placement of omg links and blurbs on Yahoo’s home page gives it access to some 500 million unique visitors a month. The strategy has vaulted the 2-year-old site past People and TMZ, both units of Time Warner Inc., as well as other popular celebrity sites like PerezHilton.com. According to the latest figures from tracking firm comScore, omg clocked 20.6 million unique visitors in May, a 65 percent increase from a year ago and more than No. 2 TMZ and No. 3 People combined. The majority of the omg traffic comes from people who click through Yahoo’s

’Transformers,’ ‘Ice Age’ tie for box office lead DAVID GERMAIN AP Movie Writer

LOS ANGELES Prehistoric creatures and scifi robots were in a photo finish for the Fourth of July box-office crown Sunday, with “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” and “Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs” tied with $42.5 million each. Final numbers Monday will sort out which movie actually came in first, Paramount’s “Transformers” or 20th Century Fox’s “Ice Age.” Numbers reported over the weekend are estimates based on the studio’s projections for how much business the movies will do on Sunday. “I’ve seen squeakers before in my time, but never one like this,” said Paul Dergarabedian, box-office analyst for Hollywood.com. In past close finishes, studios have

accused each other of inflating their Sunday estimates to gain first-place bragging rights, only to have another movie take the No. 1 spot once final numbers are reported the next day. “This shows a lot of respect between the two studios,” Dergarabedian said. “They’re just saying, ‘Look, as of right now, it’s too close to call.’” Universal’s crime saga “Public Enemies,” starring Johnny Depp and Christian Bale, debuted a solid No. 3 with $26.2 million. It’s rare when box-office rankings are so close, particularly in summer, when movies typically have huge opening weekends then trail off to make way for the next blockbuster. But the action adventure “Transformers” held up well from its $109 million debut the previous weekend, while the animated sequel “Ice Age” packed in family crowds. With a $293.5 million domestic total

EDITOR IN CHIEF Kevin Herrera

Editor:

Since taking office in January, Secretary Salazar has prioritized renewable energy, put the brakes on the Bush administration’s full-steam-ahead approach to destructive oil shale development and canceled oil and gas leases on the edge of Utah national parks and historic sites on nearby public land. Yet Salazar’s measured approach has provoked a backlash by the oil and gas industry that had enjoyed a privileged status during the eight years of the Bush administration. Secretary Salazar’s understanding that he is a steward of our public lands and not the servant of the oil industry is a breath of fresh air. With the Obama administration placing conservation and renewable energy issues high on its agenda, these first steps should be the first of many more toward the reforms needed to make sure the oil and gas industry doesn’t wreck more of our fragile western landscapes. Secretary Salazar should continue the agency’s shift from giving the oil industry what it wants to insisting on balance on ands that belong to everyone.

People aren’t buying into ‘activity centers’ concept

editor@smdp.com

MANAGING EDITOR Daniel Archuleta daniela@smdp.com

STAFF WRITER Melody Hanatani melodyh@smdp.com

I DIDN’T ATTEND THE WILSHIRE MONTANA

(Wilmont) Neighborhood Coalition’s annual meeting June 20 because I was volunteering at the Juneteenth celebration in Virginia Park. I missed the panel discussion about “the future” of mid-Wilshire Boulevard. The two large commercial properties between 14th and Euclid streets (now a Rite-Aid and a Von’s market) are the poster children for the proposed update to the city’s master plan — the Land Use and Circulation Element or LUCE. The city’s goal is to eventually allow these and other commercial properties to be developed exactly as city Planning Director Eileen Fogarty envisions — as large, dense "activity centers" with underground parking, full lot coverage, building(s) up to six floors high containing a mix of market rate and public housing, retail and office/commercial space and interior courtyards with entrances facing enhanced, pedestrian oriented streets and sidewalks instead of rear surface parking lots. While there are no plans to develop these privately owned parcels that I know of, a large commercial property in the 3100 block of Wilshire (Albertsons/Big 5) was recently purchased by the Macerich Co. who does plan to redevelop at some point but hasn’t revealed specifics. Chances are good it will be an “activity center” like the ones Fogarty says we need along mid-Wilshire and on Lincoln, Pico and Santa Monica boulevards, Broadway and Colorado Avenue. In March or 2007, the city hosted a LUCE neighborhood scoping meeting at Lincoln Middle School to gauge public opinion — but more accurately, to convince us bigger is better. Most of my neighbors were opposed to large developments period but especially in the 1300 block of Wilshire, the loss of street traffic carrying capacity, cosmetic sidewalk enhancements and other misdirected efforts they saw as contributing to more crowding, traffic congestion, larger buildings and a loss of Wilmont’s sense of place. They felt victimized by Fogarty, city planning staff, highly paid out of town consultants, pro-development council persons, planning commissioners, real estate, construction and architectural interests, bicycle advocates and pro-growth city and Renters’ Rights sycophants who were there (as well as at all the other LUCE meetings) to lobby hard for bigger “smartgrowth” projects and “green streets.” Chalk it up to the city’s classic “we hear you but we’re not listening” syndrome because two weeks ago at Wilmont’s annual meeting, Fogarty was putting lipstick on the very same pig neighbors rejected over two years ago. She was still gripping the same six floor “activity centers,” wider sidewalks,

improved pedestrian enhancements, landscaping and reduced traffic lanes in her teeth like a stubborn bulldog with a bone. When polled, a resounding 74 percent of Wilmont’s attendees still opposed the “activity center” concept. Despite all the publicity, outreach and glossy propaganda, Santa Monicans know a rotten apple when they smell one. For example, Fogarty gussies up these developments as residential projects, transitioning away from what she calls “a hostile environment for pedestrians” as if something were wrong with driving, parking your car and walking in and out of a drug or grocery store. From the very beginning, the issues Fogarty defines are bogus. Nobody’s complaining about narrow sidewalks or being unable to walk, but they are bitching about traffic gridlock, parking shortages, too much development and vagrants. The people continue to be ignored and problems will be exacerbated when LUCE is finally approved, next year. The “activity centers” — in fact, most of LUCE’s proposed development standards for major commercial streets — call for taller and more massive buildings if “public benefits” such as pubic housing or family-oriented shopping like grocery stores were included in the developments. Sounds like another snow job because most of these “public benefits" don’t serve the neighborhood. The Daily News commented (June 27, 2009) about Los Angeles, "despite the oftrepeated smart growth mantra... Little of the new commercial development is for the local residents. You don’t see the small markets selling fruits and vegetables and staples or hardware stores or shoe repairs. “They have been displaced by businesses that target people who live outside the area such as restaurants, bars and trendy boutiques, exotic plant shops, and incense and candle stores. These aren’t neighborhood mom and pops. They are owned by outsiders ... They don’t have the same stake in the neighborhoods and attract customers from other areas whose cars clog streets and take up the limited parking that’s available.” This holds especially true here in touristridden Santa Monica where Fogarty and her expensive consultants would rather pursue fantasies and false premises. Wanna bet when LUCE goes before City Council for approval a year from now, bigger mixed-use “activity centers" will be de-rigueur on all of our major streets? Another LUCE public workshop is being held tomorrow, July 7, 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. in the Civic Auditorium East Wing. Got a Comment? Don’t waste your time. This turkey has already been cooked and served up even though it’s putrid. BILL can be reached at mr.bilbau@gmail.com.

Michael Jackson, media greed and the demise of democracy THE ZOMBIES MAY HAVE STALKED

Michael Jackson on camera in his music video “Thriller,” but it was the media vampires who hounded him off camera and eventually sucked him dry. For years, the media pundits crucified the man they dubbed Wacko Jacko in order to titillate readers and amuse viewers. Now, they’ve deified him in death for the very same purpose. It doesn’t matter whether you’re talking about tabloid news, entertainment news or legitimate news shows — as the Jackson coverage shows, there’s little difference between them anymore. They all exist for one purpose, and that is to make money. If what sells is entertainment news, then the Jackson coverage is a good indicator of exactly how dangerous celebrity-driven news has become for our country and our democracy. The coverage was exhaustive and covered every media platform: online, broadcast, print tabloids, broad sheets, radio. As Variety reported, “TV’s entertainment strips and news mags were preparing Friday for what will likely be weeks — possibly months — of coverage.” Anticipating higher newsstand sales, many newspapers even rushed to put out special editions to commemorate Jackson’s life and death. “In newspapers like the New York Times, Jackson, 50, took over much of the Friday front page,” reported Reuters. “Forget the political uproar in Iran, which has dominated headlines in recent days or the adulturous [sic] governor of South Carolina, or even the demise of ‘Charlie’s Angels’ star Farrah Fawcett.” Advertisers smelled a profit in the making. They could use the dead man to sell their products, and Americans would lap it up. Within the first few hours of reporting Jackson’s death on June 25, 2009, cable news channels, which devoted their airtime almost exclusively to the King of Pop, pulled in more than 10 million viewers. Since then, the networks have provided a steady stream of mindless coverage to fill the airtime. They’ve speculated on Jackson’s will, his estate, who will get custody of his children, his drug usage, his sexual proclivities and his state of mind. Days after Jackson’s death, I was still hard-pressed to find much in the way of real news about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the rising tensions in Iran, the state of the U.S. job market, the worldwide economic crisis or the Obama administration’s latest efforts to advance their health

Why so grim? A recent Daily Press article discovered that suicides are on the rise across the city. Since the beginning of the year, there have been 20 suicide attempts, 10 of which have been fatal, according to records released by the Santa Monica Police Department. So this week’s Q-Line question asks: What do you think is causing the spike in suicide attempts? Call (310) 285-8106 before Friday at 5 p.m. and we’ll print your answers in the weekend edition of the Daily Press. Please limit responses to a minute or less.

care agenda. Truly enterprising viewers might have been able to glean important tidbits on world politics and the economy from the tiny news crawl running at the bottom of their screen, but even those were overshadowed by the Jackson coverage. I had to wonder: are the networks merely giving us what we want with this steady diet of celebrity news or are we being inculcated into the kinds of mindless viewers, aka consumers, they want? It’s an important distinction, with far-reaching implications for the future of democracy. Americans today primarily get their news from television. Yet even with the rise of 24hour news channels, people aren’t any more informed about the real issues of the day. As a Pew Research Center report found, “Since the late 1980s, the emergence of 24-hour cable news as a dominant news source and the explosive growth of the Internet have led to major changes in the American public’s news habits. But a new nationwide survey finds that the coaxial and digital revolutions and attendant changes in news audience behaviors have had little impact on how much Americans know about national and international affairs.” News should inform, uplift and challenge. It should make you think analytically. Instead, today’s news networks entertain and titillate. What’s more, there’s little discernible difference between them anymore. When it comes to money and greed, they’re all the same: they have all resorted to sensationalist tabloid journalism, because that’s what sells. In the process, they have done Americans a great disservice, not only by failing to inform them but by programming them to feed at the trough. Americans have been bombarded with saturated media coverage containing little substance, and the Jackson coverage is a perfect example of this. Unfortunately, most Americans have bought into the notion that whatever the media happens to report is important and relevant. In the process, Americans have more and more become like sheep and have lost the ability to ask questions and think analytically. Yet who loses when the people don’t know anything about the workings of their government? Democracy. Constitutional attorney and author JOHN W.

Euro Taxi Dear EarthTalk What effects do fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides used on residential lawns or on farms have on nearby water bodies like rivers, streams — or even the ocean for those of us who live near the shore?

Linda Reddington Manahawkin, NJ

WITH THE ADVENT OF THE SO-CALLED

Green Revolution in the second half of the 20th century — when farmers began to use technological advances to boost yields — synthetic fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides became commonplace around the world not only on farms, but in backyard gardens and on front lawns as well. These chemicals, many of which were developed in the lab and are petroleumbased, have allowed farmers and gardeners of every stripe to exercise greater control over the plants they want to grow by enriching the immediate environment and warding off pests. But such benefits haven’t come without environmental costs — namely the wholesale pollution of most of our streams, rivers, ponds, lakes and even coastal areas, as these synthetic chemicals run-off into the nearby waterways. When the excess nutrients from all the fertilizer we use runs off into our waterways, they cause algae blooms sometimes big enough to make waterways impassable. When the algae die, they sink to the bottom and decompose in a process that removes oxygen from the water. Fish and other aquatic species can’t survive in these socalled “dead zones” and so they die or move on to greener underwater pastures. A related issue is the poisoning of aquatic life. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Americans alone churn through 75 million pounds of pesticides each year to keep the bugs off their

peapods and petunias. When those chemicals get into waterways, fish ingest them and become diseased. Humans who eat diseased fish can themselves become ill, completing the circle wrought by pollution. A 2007 study of pollution in rivers around Portland, Oregon found that wild salmon there are swimming around with dozens of synthetic chemicals in their systems. Another recent study from Indiana found that a variety of corn genetically engineered to produce the insecticide Bt is having toxic effects on non-target aquatic insects, including caddis flies, a major food source for fish and frogs. The solution, of course, is to go organic, both at home and on the farm. According to the Organic Trade Association, organic farmers and gardeners use composted manure and other natural materials, as well as crop rotation, to help improve soil fertility, rather than synthetic fertilizers that can result in an overabundance of nutrients. As a result, these practices protect ground water supplies and avoid runoff of chemicals that can cause dead zones and poisoned aquatic life. There is now a large variety of organic fertilizer available commercially, as well as many ways to keep pests at bay without resorting to harsh synthetic chemicals. A wealth of information on growing greener can be found online: Check out OrganicGardeningGuru.com and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Alternative Farming System Information Center, for starters. Those interested in face-to-face advice should consult with a master gardener at a local nursery that specializes in organic gardening. Want to get down to earth?

“It was hard for me to believe that a sixth grader could take on this job, but she’s certainly proved me wrong,” said Fairview branch manager Sylvia Anderly, who called Kelleghan a “child extraordinaire.” Today, lots of adults and kids tutor at the library — and Kelleghan’s aids help both groups. “Everyone can use a little suggestion,” Anderly said. “The aids are an invaluable tool.” One of Kelleghan’s greatest tutoring challenges is when kids can’t understand something and start to get frustrated. “I try to find something they like, and do it on their terms,” she said, recalling the time she brought in a cash register to help a student who was struggling in math but seemed interested in money. Kelleghan regularly weaves “Star Wars,” “Hannah Montana” and race cars into her tutoring sessions to keep kids interested. “Tutoring shouldn’t be an extension of school.” Anderly said this kind of innovation is what makes Kelleghan such a great tutor. “She has the ability to make a child feel comfortable, and she always comes prepared,” Anderly said. “She has a tremendous amount of maturity and the natural skill of being a teacher.” Kelleghan is a third generation Santa Monican. Outside of Santa Monica, one of

Kelleghan’s favorite hobbies is traveling. “I want to go everywhere,” she said. “I love going to the airport — even that is exciting,” In 2007, she visited Hungary — where she stayed with family friends — and Romania — where she worked at a summer camp with local children. Kelleghan was adamant about her desire to avoid hotels, tourist attractions and restaurants that serve American food. “I’m not good with spicy food yet,” she said. “I think a trip to India is in order.” Last summer, the troop traveled to Washington state, where they toured Seattle, Olympic National Park and Forks — the setting of the popular “Twilight” book and movie series. “It was an accident, but since we’ve all read the books we were really excited,” said troop 287 member Clare LeDuff. Despite her desire to see the world, Kelleghan hopes to remain in California for college. Her top choices are UCLA — from which she could continue tutoring and spend time with her sister, who also attends the university — and USC — where she has interned in the geochemistry department since last year. She’s interested in careers like genetic counseling or occupational therapy. “I wouldn’t want to go through life and not make a difference,” she said. news@smdp.com

Site a welcome success for Yahoo FROM YAHOO PAGE 3 home page, which critics and competitors view as giving it an unfair advantage. Although omg readers view on average half the number of pages once they arrive — about 16 compared with 29 for all entertainment news properties — the site is still topranked in overall page views in the category. Other large media organizations have taken notice. In February, Microsoft Corp. and Hollywood production company BermanBraun jointly launched Wonderwall with a similar strategy of drawing traffic from a large portal — in this case, Microsoft’s MSN. Like omg, Wonderwall runs on a small staff, about a dozen full time. “Our traffic has been beyond any estimates that any of us had projected,” said BermanBraun co-owner Lloyd Braun, a TV executive and former head of the Yahoo Media Group. In April, the last month its data were broken out, Wonderwall had 9 million unique visitors, putting it past People and into third behind TMZ had it been ranked by comScore among other entertainment news sites. “They would not be there were they not affiliated with a Yahoo or an MSN or these large corporate entities,” said Perez Hilton, the celebrity blogger who runs PerezHilton.com. “I think their numbers are misleading.” Omg, like its rivals, says it has been gradually succeeding at deriving more of its traffic “organically,” through search queries or people bookmarking the pages. But there’s no question traffic from the portal helps it stand out among some 1,000 or so celebrity news sites that have popped up, and occasionally dropped out, over the past several years. The tone of omg, like Yahoo itself, is bright,

breezy and nonjudgmental. Blurbs written by omg staff link to original stories and photos elsewhere on Yahoo or at other sites. Following Jackson’s unexpected death, omg took a respectful, celebratory view of the pop icon’s life through photo galleries and celebrity reaction stories, leaving the hard-driving news pieces to Yahoo’s front page and news site. “We just like to tell the happy view on what’s going on in the entertainment world,” said Sibyl Goldman, an entertainment group vice president. That bright spin has attracted advertisers worried that appearing next to salacious scandal stories would turn off some consumers. State Farm Insurance Cos. has sponsored a series of short celebrity-mom interviews, targeting mothers in a conflict-free format that avoids some of the celebrity muckraking of other sites. “It’s not all about traffic,” said Ed Gold, the insurance company’s advertising director. “Our goal is not to put State Farm into environments that aren’t appropriate to our brand. There are some (celebrity sites) that may go a little bit too far in what they cover.” People.com Editor Mark Golin said that while such sites may capture a lot of visitors, reliance on a portal home page may not work in the long term. Although People benefits from links on AOL’s home page and other sites — even omg — Golin said most traffic comes to the site directly. People writers work both for the magazine and the Web site although he wouldn’t reveal how many. “We have our own reporters. We create our own center of gravity,” Golin said. “Even should readers hear a piece of news somewhere else, they’ll still end up coming to us to make sure it’s true. You don’t necessarily get that with an aggregator.”

Sustainability more commonplace since creation of plan FROM SUSTAINABLE PAGE 1 Kubani, the director of the Office of Sustainability and the Environment, said. “We don’t want to get rid of it, but we want to green it to make it less intensive.” Kubani added that the liaison has been important in linking the city and community, facilitating workshops and providing information on sustainability matters. The second phase of the program will ask City Hall to fund $100,000 to install and service recycling bins in parks and other public spaces. City officials also plan to add a “Sustainability Impact Analysis” to staff reports, which already includes a financial impact section, and create a Sustainability Working Group that will consist of city departments, the Chamber of Commerce, Convention and Visitors Bureau and representatives from the various business improvement districts. The working group will in a sense replace the Sustainable City Task Force, which formed in 2003 shortly after the adoption of the plan and was scheduled to sunset on June 8. Dennis Woods, who chaired the task force, said that he would like to see city offi-

Top spot ends in tie FROM BOX OFFICE PAGE 3 air with one of the biggest event movies ever.” With the Fourth of July falling on Saturday, usually Hollywood’s busiest day, revenues trailed off as people skipped movies to watch fireworks and go to cook-

cials in phase two look at how various sectors of the community — whether it’s residents, organizations or businesses — are contributing when it comes to sustainability and the environment, quantifying and evaluating the effectiveness of their efforts. “We’ve never developed a system of how many people are going green,” Woods said. “What are people doing to move us toward sustainability goals?” He added that city officials should also look at ways to make the industrial areas of the city more sustainable. “What we need to do is to create a synergy between the different owners so that one owner’s waste is another person’s prime product,” he said. “You can produce and reduce resources in the same locale.” The Sustainable City Plan is an extension of the Sustainable City Program, which was developed in 1994 and was considered more modest in scope, focusing primarily on greening city operations. In 2000, city officials decided to expand and update the program, launching a process through which they essentially took apart what had existed and created a more comprehensive plan. The process brought councilmembers, representatives from vari-

ous commissions, different neighborhood groups, and the local educational institutions to the table, Kubani said. The result was a plan that looked beyond city operations into other areas like human dignity and civic participation. “We can’t have a sustainable community if you can’t meet basic needs,” Kubani said. The goals are graded every fall in the Sustainable City Report Card. Last year’s report card saw slight improvements in housing and resource conservation. Open space, community education and civic participation continued to perform well, while the area of environment and public health held a C grade after scoring Bs in 2005 and 2006. Kubani believes the Sustainable City Program and ensuing Sustainable City Plan have improved awareness about how people conduct business and go about their lives. It’s also influenced other city departments. “Now it’s not just my office talking about it,” he said. “It’s other departments in the city integrating it. “They have sustainability goals.” He adds that the business community has also embraced sustainability, through work-

outs or other outdoor activities. Starring Depp as 1930s gangster John Dillinger and Bale as FBI man Melvin Purvis, “Public Enemies” pulled in an audience of older adults who often do not pack theaters for summer’s action tales, family flicks and comedies. “We felt this was going to be the right moment to insert something with a little bit

more substance into the mix,” said Adam Fogelson, Universal’s president of marketing and distribution. “Up” reached a milestone of its own, its $6.6 million weekend lifting its domestic haul to $264.9 million, passing “The Incredibles” ($261.4 million) to become No. 2 on the Disney-Pixar hit list behind “Finding Nemo” ($339.7 million).

With $10.4 million, the Warner Bros. bachelor-party comedy “The Hangover” became the year’s fourth movie to cross the $200 million mark, climbing to a domestic total of $204.2 million.

shops and even its own awards show, the Sustainable Quality Awards. Sustainable Works also runs a successful business greening and certification programs. The Chamber of Commerce has made sustainability a regular element of its organization, talking about the issue during various committee meetings and sponsoring events. The chamber recently partnered with Santa Monica High School for its AP Challenge in which students collected waste from various offices throughout the city. They ended up gathering several tons of waste, Brian Chase, the director of government affairs for the chamber, said. The chamber has also began running regular columns in its monthly newsletter called “Sustainability is Good Business.” Chase said that the Santa Monica chamber is particularly savvy relative to other chambers because of the culture in the city. “In some ways we’re involved directly with the community,” Chase said. “In other ways we’re continuously being updated by the city and by nonprofits in ways that we can get environmental messages out to our businesses.”

This year, the pace is quick, and events occur rather quickly. You often feel pushed by others, who challenge a personal, key bond. Learn to juggle. The best solution is to rise above such matters. If you are single, you could meet someone through friends, even pushy ones! Don't judge this person just because he or she was introduced to you by this particular friend. If you are attached, determine your commitments, and understand and honor those priorities. If you don't, you could have a problem with your sweetie. CAPRICORN often challenges you.

SHEPARD

■ On a hot July 2005 day in Stamford, Conn., firefighters not only had to break a car window but overcome the car’s owner, who couldn’t bear to see her Audi A4 damaged. The 23-month-old son of Susan Guita Silverstein, 42, had been accidentally locked inside, along with the key, for at least 20 minutes on a sweltering, 88-degree day. Silverstein (who was later charged with reckless endangerment) begged firefighters to wait so she could go home and retrieve her spare key, to save her window. ■ More Post-Traumatic Stress: Peter Singer, the author of a new book on battlefield robotics, told LiveScience.com in May he had seen soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan grow so attached to their bomb-disposal robots that, in one case, the soldier risked 160 feet of enemy machine gun fire to retrieve his little buddy, and in another, a soldier brought his robot in for repairs with tears in his eyes over the “injury” to his beloved “Scooby-Doo.” Several units, he said, had given their robots promotions, Purple Hearts and even a military funeral.

TODAY IN HISTORY An estimated 168 people died in a fire that broke out during a performance in the main tent of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus in Hartford, Conn. (Among the survivors was future actor Charles Nelson Reilly, then age 13.) St. Thomas More was executed in England for high treason. During the American Revolution, British forces captured Fort Ticonderoga in New York. French troops arrested Pope Pius VII, who had excommunicated Emperor Napoleon I. French scientist Louis Pasteur successfully tested an anti-rabies vaccine on a boy who had been bitten by an infected dog. During World War I, Arab forces led by T.E. Lawrence and Auda Abu Tayi captured the port of Aqaba from the Turks. The first all-talking feature, "Lights of New York," had its gala premiere in New York.
