JEFF McCULTY

Blue-collar pastor gets hands dirty BY NATALIE JARVEY Special to the Daily Press

PEARL STREET Jeff McCulty is a blue-collar pastor — his fingernails are stained black from working on car engines and he wears baggy blue jeans with scuffed white sneakers — but this Southern Baptist minister feels right at home among Santa Monica’s manicured lawns and white picket fences. As the pastor of Church on Pearl for the last eight years, McCulty, 46, has made a name for himself within the community. He has opened up the playground at the church to neighborhood children, let people use the church’s lawn during this year’s Celebrate America festivities and would fix any broken car that rolled into the parking lot.

“We’re slowly trying to break down all those barriers that were built up,” McCulty said. “The church had a whole fenced off feel to it." When McCulty first came to Church on Pearl in 2001, New Roads Elementary School was renting space for classrooms. When New Roads moved to its current location on Stoner Avenue, it opened up more of the church for McCulty to utilize. He now shares the buildings with a Hispanic ministry, two Korean groups and is even hosting six young missionaries from North Carolina. But without the income from New Roads, McCulty has been forced to make some changes. Maya Sugarman news@smdp.com

EDITOR IN CHIEF Kevin Herrera

Editor:

I agree with Paul Bergman’s statement on the topic of bicyclists who switch from the street to the sidewalk: “For me, self-preservation is the ultimate law.” Here’s my statement in support of his statement: “I feel that it’s my duty to desist from putting any Santa Monica police officer to the repulsive task of scraping my brains off the street pavement because I failed to steer my bicycle off the street as some driver was putting my life at risk by irresponsible behavior such as using a cell phone, not signaling, etc.” What was all that PR about Santa Monica as a bicycle friendly town? Does that mean that bicycle lock-up stands are more plentiful than in most other cities? Why not utilize the power of the press to decry motorists who drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs — both prescription and illegal — or use their cell phones? I’d like to see an effective system in place whereby a bicyclist can report the license plate of a cell phone using driver, and there will be consequences for that irresponsible driver who risks the lives of bicyclists.

You’ve got the wrong group Editor:

In response to Kent Cullom’s letter to the editor (“Critical Mass causing trouble,” page 4 July 17): Critical Mass does not ride on Tuesdays. There are two Critical Mass rides on the Westside each month, Venice and Santa Monica, one on the first Friday and the other the last Friday of the month. So, let’s not blame Critical Mass when it is not that group of cyclists. And, cyclists wont blame all drivers for the dangerous behavior of the few inconsiderate ones.

Marathon a bad idea THE 2010 LOS ANGELES MARATHON

Committee would like next year’s event to run though Santa Monica. According to their Web site, the race will be held on a Sunday “sometime in March.” Its new course is in flux. Tentatively, the 2010 race will start at Dodger Stadium, eventually head to San Vicente Boulevard, turn on Ocean Avenue/Neilson Way and continue to a finish line somewhere in Santa Monica, perhaps the world famous Santa Monica Pier. Last year’s Memorial Day L.A. Marathon drew 17,000 runners while the 2008 race on March 2 drew 25,000 runners. All streets on the course will be shut down most of the day as well as cross and intersecting streets. Gridlock promises to be horrendous. Access to Downtown, the pier or beach and parking will be difficult at best. Although, there could be a minor bump in local food, alcohol and hotel revenues, traditionally any substantial sales bumps are mostly at hotels and restaurants near the race’s start — around Downtown L.A. With the exception of local runners, any benefit to Santa Monica would be negligible. That leaves the rest of us with only the inconvenience, barricaded streets and traffic nightmares. The 2010 marathon’s date and course must be approved by Los Angeles City Council. Our City Council must OK any leg of the race here as well as how extra costs for police, city staff and traffic control will be handled. The issue may be before our council on July 28. They should say “No” to this turkey. ANOTHER SCHOOL PARCEL TAX?

ODDS OF A CHILD BECOMING A PROFESSIONAL ATHLETE: 1 in 16,000 ODDS OF A CHILD BEING DIAGNOSED WITH AUTISM: 1 in 166

Thursday, the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District Board of Education approved the formation of an ad hoc citizens committee for placing a new, “temporary” school parcel tax on the ballot next June or in a special election. This comes less than a year and a half after voters approved a $346 annual measure that permanently renewed two expiring “temporary” parcel taxes. The request for the committee was floated by school Superintendent Tim Cuneo as a way to help replace an expected $10 to $12 million reduction in state funding for the district. The measure is heavily backed by the usual school supporters such as Laurie Lieberman and Debbie Mulvaney, founding members of LEAD (Leadership Effectiveness Accountability Direction). The board also approved $50,000 for public opinion polling on support for the new tax in the middle of a serious economic downturn. But, how serious is the crisis? According to state Assemblymember Fran Pavley’s 23rd District July newsletter, “The cuts also have affected schools in Santa Monica and Malibu, but not to the same degree as in other districts.

“The $4.5 million eliminated from the 2009-10 budget means class size increases in elementary schools from 20-to-1 to 23-to-1, and by one student at the higher grades,” said Jan Maez, the district’s chief financial officer. “The good news is all cuts have been accomplished through attrition, not layoffs,” she said. Once again, SMMUSD administrators seem to have differing takes on financial issues. If Maez is correct, it appears that the state’s budget woes are being used as an excuse to sneak in an unneeded and unwarranted tax increase for a school district that never has enough money. Despite the district’s own Financial Oversight Committee looking into alternative revenue sources and/or charging fees to non-district permit families (who pay no parcel taxes, bond fees or even donate to the schools), administrators, the school board and well-heeled school cheerleaders would rather gouge strapped renters and property owners for yet another regressive and unfair school tax than find other options. The SMMUSD has a history of fiscal mishaps going back longer than a decade. Even members of the current Measure BB (construction bonds) Financial Oversight Committee have complained bitterly about not getting enough information, slow response to queries and interference by district staff. The district loves to spend, spend and spend. According to district records, in 2008-09, the school board approved $842,000 for assorted lawyers to fight special education parents — more than four times what was originally budgeted. The SMMUSD also paid out $163,000 to attorney/consultant Mary Kellogg. And last January, the SMMUSD paid $150,000 to an outside legal firm for “labor negotiating.” That’s over $1.1 million in special ed and union negotiating legal fees for outside firms! Then there’s Cuneo’s $220,000 base salary plus perks and expenses approaching $100,000 — which is what the classroom teachers’ union recently suggested he give up. Another parcel tax? What chutzpah! ACLU attorneys: Shoot first, ask questions later I’m outraged that the Southern California American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) may have slain the goose that laid the golden egg by filing a federal lawsuit last week accusing the city and its police department of violating the constitutional rights of the homeless. Their litigation is predicated on misinformation, ignorance and misguided idealism. It’s totally without merit. I’ll have lots more to say about this offensive and potentially damaging (to homeless services) misfire next week.

Remembering Carol WHEN HIS WIFE JOY DIED IN 1960,

C.S. Lewis’ life crumbled. “If my house has collapsed at one blow,” the famous author and Christian apologist writes in the early pages of “A Grief Observed” (1961), “that is because it was a house of cards. The faith which ‘took these things into account’ was not faith but imagination.” From there, Lewis, in his remarkable book, questions the nature of the “good” God in which he once believed, coming to the conclusion that what we humans see as good is meaningless in the eyes of God. “If His ideas of good are so very different from ours,” Lewis writes, “what He calls Heaven might well be what we should call Hell, and vice versa.” In a deep depression when his wife passed away, Lewis obviously fell into despair. Although later in the book he softens his view on God — referring to God as possibly “a surgeon whose intentions are wholly good" — Lewis astutely describes what it feels like to lose someone very close to you. “Death only reveals the vacuity that has always been there. What we call the living are simply those who have not yet been unmasked. All equally bankrupt, but some not yet declared.” Recently, my wife of 42 years, Carol, suddenly passed away. Nothing can convey the feeling of lostness that has come over me. I feel like a gutted fish. My sense of being has been amputated. Emptiness. A vast void that cannot be filled. Carol was my soul mate. We were childhood lovers. We did everything together. And while, because of my intense and often abusive nature I seemed to break down, Carol was always there, holding me up so I would not crash. When I was going to quit law school, Carol made me go back to class. She was always there at key junctures in my life, keeping me on track. It was not easy to live with me, but Carol did so with amazing grace. She became a mother, bearing five children while having three miscarriages. When I became a lawyer and later founded a civil liberties organization, Carol helped organize it and donated her meager savings to get it up and running. And when there were no word processors, Carol typed and retyped my books on manual typewriters. She did everything for me, often acting more like a mother than a wife in correcting me and making sure I would succeed. Without her, I would have been nothing. And now she is gone.

Home for the homeless? The ACLU filed a suit last week claiming City Hall violated constitutional rights by arresting a group of six plaintiffs for breaking a local law against camping when there is a lack of sufficient shelter space to accommodate them.

I now face the same questions that plagued Lewis. Why would a good God completely disembowel my life? How can I explain the massive hole in my soul left by my beloved? The truth is, I can’t. There really are no neat and simple answers. I do believe in a God of order. But suppose Lewis is right. What we are up against is not the sanguine God that modern prosperity preachers try to sell us. Suppose God is a cosmic surgeon. “The kinder and more conscientious he is, the more inexorably he will go on cutting. If he yielded to your entreaties, if he stopped before the operation was complete, all the pain up to that point would have been useless....If there is a good God, then these tortures are necessary.” So all the tortures of life and the extreme pain and suffering of losing Carol are for my good? All of it has a purpose? God had to knock me down to my knees to make me come to my senses? Yes. Maybe. Hopefully. We never truly appreciate the great ones among us. And Carol was such a person. She was such an ominous presence in my life. Looking back on it now, I saw Carol as a form of divinity — as I wrote in a Valentine’s Day poem to her several months before she passed away. Here are a few verses:

Earth Talk By the editors of E Magazine

Send comments to editor@smdp.com

OLD SCHOOL: As mined minerals go, Borax (actually boron, oxygen and sodium) could be worse — and it has many relatively non-toxic uses, from cleaning to pest control to potentially treating cancer and aiding in the production of fuel cells. Pictured: Some of the wagons pulled by a ‘20 Mule Team’ (actually 18 mules and two horses) in the late 1800s that would carry processed borax from mines to the nearest railroad spur.

Borax makes comeback Dear EarthTalk I’ve heard so much about using Borax for green housecleaning. But if this mineral has to be mined, doesn’t that negate some of its “green-ness?”

Elsa Lincoln, Neb.

MINING FOR MINERALS SUCH AS BORON

(the key ingredient in the “Borax” we use for cleaning, pest control and other household tasks) is an activity that typically leaves behind a big environmental footprint. Mining degrades the local landscape and destroys wildlife habitat, while polluting both air and water. It also usually consumes large amounts of water, which can be taxing in already arid regions, such as the Mojave Desert, one of two regions of the world (along with parts of Turkey) with large boron deposits. Typically, boron is extracted in open-pit mines by drilling, blasting, crushing and hauling — all activities fueled by petrochemicals. The refining process then uses a significant amount of water. Finally, the waste product — known in the industry as “tailings” — is deposited in man-made ponds where further refining is done before the water is then discharged into the local watershed. The mining industry has long been criticized as an environmental baddie, but the leading company that mines Borax, Rio Tinto, has actually been given high marks for environmental stewardship. Jared Diamond’s 2005 book, “Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed” called the British mining giant the exception in its industry. Due to “a strongly supportive CEO and British stockholders,” he wrote, the company moved forward with the 2002 environmental recommendations of the mining industry’s Mining Minerals and Sustainable Development project that were for the most part ignored by the rest of the industry. “Rio Tinto foresaw business advan-

tages to being seen as an industry leader in social responsibility,” said Diamond. “Its Borax mine in Death Valley, California is now perhaps the most cleanly operated mine in the U.S.” Boron, oxygen and sodium make up sodium tetraborate, which is sold as “20 Mule Team Borax” (the name comes from the teams of 18 mules and two horses that would haul large wagons of processed borax from mines in the late 1800s to the nearest railroad spur). The powdered detergent is considered a least-toxic recipe as a natural disinfectant and household cleaner. Beyond cleaning formulations, boron is also used in a wide variety of other products, including the manufacture of fiberglass and Pyrex. Pest control is another use. One boron compound is used to treat wood to prevent fungal decay and repel carpenter ants, roaches and termites. Boric acid is included on the national list of allowed substances for structural pest control in organic food production (as long as there is no direct contact with food or crops). The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has determined that pesticide products containing boric acid and its salts are of low toxicity. (However, ingesting it or applying large amounts to the skin can cause acute poisoning, so parents should be vigilant about where they store and use products containing Borax.) Emerging uses of boron, and new ways to recycle its waste, may make this mineral even more valuable. A Turkish researcher notes that borax waste added to red bricks and cement products increases strength and lifespan. And at the National Boron Research Institute in Turkey, it is being studied as an element to produce fuel cells and to aid in cancer treatment.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. Once Sonia Sotomayor is confirmed to the Supreme Court, all those hours of predictable questions and cautious replies at her Senate confirmation hearings will be filed and forgotten as she judges the way she sees fit. Nobody can hold her to what she’s said. That’s the usually unspoken reality of confirmation proceedings. Once the votes are cast, they don’t count. It was spoken this time in a brief, little-noted exchange during four days of Senate Judiciary Committee hearings. “Is there anything the Senate or Congress can do if a nominee says one thing seated at that table and does something exactly the opposite once they walk across the street?” asked Sen. Arlen Specter, D-Pa. The Supreme Court is across the street from the Senate hearing room. He knew the answer, of course. No. But Sotomayor didn’t reply that bluntly. “That, in fact, is one of the beauties of our constitutional system ... that we do have a separation of powers,” Sotomayor responded. “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder,” Specter said. “It’s only Constitution Avenue there.” There’s no reason to suspect that when Judge Sotomayor becomes Justice Sotomayor, she’s going to change judicial course. But it has happened, more than once, sometimes to the dismay of the presidents who appointed justices and the Senate that confirmed them to lifetime appointments. For example, there’s the record of David H. Souter, the justice Sotomayor is succeeding, a reserved New Hampshireman whose 1990 confirmation was opposed only by nine liberal Democrats, fearful that he was a closet, hardline conservative. In his confirmation hearings, Souter endorsed the concept of originalism, which holds that the Constitution should be followed according to the intent and the words of the men who wrote it. That was the philosophy of no less a conservative than Robert H. Bork, whose nomination to the Supreme Court had been rejected three years before by senators who deemed him too dogmatic and hard right. Bork’s writings and rulings did him in politically. Souter came with no paper trail and President George H. W. Bush chose him as a safely conservative nominee to the court. At first he was. But he changed course on the bench, moved to the middle and then the more liberal wing of the court, voting against abortion restrictions, supporting criminal defen-

dant rights, siding with workers in employment disputes. So the justice Bush had been told would be a “home run” for conservatives became part of the liberal bloc on a conservative court. And when Sotomayor succeeds him, the first justice named by a Democratic president in 15 years, her decisions are not likely to alter the balance on a court usually dominated by its five most conservative members. Chief Justice Earl Warren is the classic case of a justice who defied the expectations of his sponsors and, indeed, the president who chose him, Dwight D. Eisenhower. Warren was the three-time governor of California, the Republican vice presidential nominee in 1948, and a prospective challenger for the GOP presidential nomination in 1952. Instead, he endorsed Eisenhower, and was promised appointment to the first opening on the Supreme Court. The opening was for chief justice, in 1953. But Warren, a law and order Republican as governor, ruled as a liberal and an activist on the court. His first major ruling was on the first landmark case of the civil rights era, Brown v Board of Education, which banned school segregation in 1954. Among the other landmarks of the Warren court were decisions that required publicly financed attorneys for criminal defendants, and compelled police to advise people they arrested of their rights, the so-called Miranda warning. Eisenhower came to regret his choice of Warren, and once was quoted as calling it a damned fool mistake. But he couldn’t do anything about it. Warren retired as chief justice in 1969, eight years after Eisenhower left the White House. Then there was Justice Harry A. Blackmun, nominated by President Richard Nixon in 1970 and confirmed unanimously by the Senate. Blackmun was a Republican and close friend of Chief Justice Warren Burger, who recommended him to Nixon for the high court. For five years, they voted together on closely contested decisions, so often that they were called the Minnesota Twins. But Blackmun drifted toward the more liberal wing of the court, especially after 1973, when he wrote the opinion in Roe v Wade, which established a constitutional right to abortion, the most bitterly disputed ruling of that era or this. While Chief Justice Burger concurred in that decision, Blackmun’s dissents in other cases fractured their friendship. By the time he retired in 1994, Blackmun was rated among the most liberal justices. “Having been appointed by a Republican president and being accused now of being a flaming liberal,” he said in 1991, “the Republicans think I’m a traitor and the Democrats don’t trust me.”

Palin says thanks during Alaska tour MATTHEW DALY Associated Press Writer

UNALAKLEET, Alaska She was greeted like a rock star in Unalakleet, a fishing village on the Bering Sea. She danced with Eskimos in Kotzebue. And she watched grizzlies at a wildlife sanctuary on the Kenai Peninsula. In all, Sarah Palin has been on eight trips outside her Anchorage base since announcing her resignation two weeks ago. Is this a farewell tour, the start of a possible presidential campaign for 2012? Palin insists it isn’t, although she still won’t say what plans she has after she steps down as Alaska governor on July 26, with 18 months left to her first term. “I am Alaskan. I’ve grown up here and I’m going to remain in Alaska,” she told The Associated Press in an interview. “It’s not farewell, it’s more like thanks for letting me be here and I’ll see you soon.” Palin has largely avoided the media limelight in the past two weeks and dodged questions about her future plans. But she hints she has a bigger role in mind, and she plans to launch her new platform by speaking her mind on the social networking site Twitter. Palin said she is eager to begin life as a private citizen. “Once I am ‘Sarah Palin, Alaskan,’ I can really call it like I see it,” she said. Palin waves off any talk of running for president. “I look forward to continuing to work for Alaska and for energy independence and for the contribution that Alaska could and should be making to allow our nation to be more secure and more prosperous,” she said. Some have speculated she plans to build on her near celebrity status as a conservative talk show host, perhaps for

Fox News. If her reception Friday in Unalakleet is any indication, she has a strong base of support. More than 100 people packed a community center and bingo hall to greet the outgoing governor as she signed a bill continuing state subsidies for rural electricity. The town, known locally as the place where the East wind blows, was an unlikely stop during Palin’s final days. A remote collection of unpaved streets on the Bering Sea, the town is so remote that is only reachable by plane and most residents get around by ATV or by foot. There are few cars. But this is what Palin loves best: Reaching out to Alaskans, no matter how remote. She barely had time to eat lunch — king crab and salmon and a barrage of homemade desserts — as families surged toward her, trying to shake her hand and get an autograph. Pictures of the governor were not enough. Residents wanted to talk to her and pose with her, even as an aide tried in vain to shield the governor and then get her to leave quietly. Palin smiled through it all, basking in the attention. She nodded sympathetically as a man told her of a relative in Iraq. She hugged a mother whose baby has Down syndrome, as does Palin’s youngest child Trig. She signed every post card and datebook thrust in front of her. Palin says Alaska voters have accepted her decision to resign, even as she continues to receive criticism from the national media and even some fellow Republicans who question her decision to leave with 18 months left in her fouryear term. “We don’t give a damn how they do it outside,” she said, quoting a popular state bumper sticker. Agnes Baptiste, who posed with Palin and other family members Friday, said she was grateful the governor took the time to come to Unalakleet.

Scientists help species spread BY ALICIA CHANG AP Science Writer

LOS ANGELES On naked patches of land in western Canada and United States, scientists are planting trees that don’t belong there. It’s a bold experiment to move trees threatened by global warming into places where they may thrive amid a changing climate. Take the Western larch with its thick grooved bark and green needles. It grows in the valleys and lower mountain slopes in British Columbia’s southern interior. Canadian foresters are testing how its seeds will fare when planted farther north — just below the Arctic Circle. Something similar will be tried in the Lower 48. Researchers will uproot moistureloving Sitka spruce and Western red cedar that grace British Columbia’s coastal rainforests and drop their seedlings in the dry ponderosa pine forests of Idaho. All of this swapping begs the question: Should humans lend nature a helping hand? With global warming threatening the livelihoods of certain plants and animals, this radical idea once dismissed in scientific circles has moved to the forefront of debate and triggered strong emotions among conservationists. About 20 to 30 percent of species worldwide face a high risk of becoming extinct possibly by 2100 as global temperatures rise, estimated a 2007 report by the Nobel-winning international climate change panel. The group noted that current conservation practices are “generally poorly prepared to adapt to this level of change.” Deliberating moving a species has long been opposed by some, who believe we should not play God with nature and worry

’Potter’ conjures up $159.7M box office DAVID GERMAIN Movie Writer

LOS ANGELES Harry Potter continues to work box-office alchemy, turning his latest movie adventure into an overnight blockbuster. The sixth installment, “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince,” took in $79.5 million domestically over opening weekend and $159.7 million since debuting last Wednesday, according to estimates from distributor Warner Bros. on Sunday. The movie also took in $237 million overseas since Wednesday in 54 countries, bringing its worldwide total to $396.7 million. With some of the best reviews of any “Harry Potter” movie, “Half-Blood Prince” was off to the fastest overall start in franchise history. The sixth movie about the young wizard came in $20 million ahead of the last movie, “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix,” which grossed $139.7 million domestically in its first five days two years ago. The new film had the second-highest start ever for a movie premiering on Wednesday, trailing the $200 million five-day opening for last month’s “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.” “Half-Blood Prince” already has surpassed the $157.3 million “Order of the Phoenix” pulled in during its entire first week. By the end of its seventh day Tuesday, “Half-Blood Prince” will be in the $180 million range.

that introducing an exotic species — intentionally or not — could upset the natural balance and cause unforeseen ripple effects. It has happened before with dire results. Two decades ago, zebra mussels were accidentally introduced into the Great Lakes and millions are now spent every year removing the pest from water pipes. Others counter that given the grim realities of a warming planet, it would be irresponsible not to intervene as a conservation strategy. Otherwise, trees may suffer from ravaging disease epidemics while critters unable to head north may find themselves trapped in a declining landscape. “A tree that we plant today better damn well be adapted to the climate for 80 years, not just the climate today,” said Greg O’Neill, a geneticist with the British Columbia Ministry of Forests and Range. “We really have to think long-term.” O’Neill is heading the government-funded experiment that will transform certain North American forests into climate change laboratories. The large-scale, first-of-itskind test involves purposely planting seeds from more a dozen timber species outside their normal comfort zone to see how well they survive decades from now. It’s more than just a brainy exercise. The findings are expected to guide the British Columbia government on forest management policies. While the experiment deals with moving seeds long distances into unaccustomed climates, O’Neill said any real-life action will not be as drastic. Outsiders are also keenly watching the experiment as a test case for what is professionally known as “assisted migration.” “We’d all prefer species to move naturally,” said Duke conservation biologist Stuart

Pimm. But “sometimes you just can’t get there from here. Some species are going to be isolated and they’re going to get stuck.” The notion of relocating species as a preemptive strike against climate change has been largely theoretical. In recent years, some groups have tried assisted migration on a limited basis, most notably the effort by volunteers who last year planted seedlings of the endangered Torreya tree found in Florida to the cooler southern Appalachians. The Canadian experiment currently under way will cover a broad swath, with tree plantings dotting the Yukon near Alaska to southern Oregon. Past warmings have forced species to migrate to survive without human help. While some have learned to adapt to new surroundings, other have gone extinct. Faced with the possibility of much more rapid climate change, scientists say, some species may not be able to move fast enough to their new destinations and may need a little power boost to preserve biodiversity. In North America, some critters have already started their march north. The Edith’s checkerspot butterfly, which vanished from its southern range, is now fluttering 75 miles higher in elevation. Red foxes have encroached farther into northern Canada and evicted the arctic foxes. On the plant side, spruce forests are invading the Arctic tundra and impacting caribou and sheep that live there. In the past century, aspen trees in Colorado have moved into the cold-loving spruce fir forests. How trees will fare in a warmer world is a concern because they tend to be less flighty than animals. Trees depend on wind and pollinators to spread their seeds. And once a tree is planted, it’s harder to move it.

Last year, the British Columbia government took the first steps toward ensuring that trees in the province are adapted to future climates by relaxing its seed rules for timber companies when they replant on logged land. Seeds of most tree species can now be planted up to 1,600 feet higher than their current location. The government’s latest experiment will study how humans can help trees move to more northerly spots where they do not currently grow, but may find themselves existing there years from now. It will not deal with introducing foreign tree species, O’Neill said. This spring, crews fanned across rugged mountains and began the first dozen plantings on cleared forest land in British Columbia’s southern interior and on a private plot near Mount St. Helens in Washington state. Each test site contains some 3,000 seedlings, on average a foot tall, planted sideby-side on five acres. Fluorescent pin-flags and aluminum stakes dot the corners so that scientists can come back every five years to document their health. The project will eventually include 48 plots around British Columbia, Washington state, Oregon, Montana and Idaho. It will test the ability of 15 tree species to survive in environments colder and hotter than they’re used to. O’Neill knows that some trees will die and others will go through erratic growth cycles. In fact, he estimates about 50 percent of the plantings may die, but he needs to collect the data to get an idea of how much they can tolerate. “It will take several extreme climatic events to find out the winners and losers,” he said.

McCulty teaches for LAUSD in extra time FROM CP PAGE 1 “I sacrificed my salary because I thought it was good for the church, and it has been,” he said. McCulty now works full time teaching math for the Los Angeles Unified School District in Van Nuys. During the summer he commutes to Westchester for summer school. While teaching is sometimes a greater challenge than preaching — he had to break up a fist fight in class last week — he credits them with the same importance. “I’m getting the opportunity to change lives in mathematics,” he said. “The consistent in teaching, is that if you know math, you make money. I’m trying to gain ground with them that gives them an up on life." McCulty lives near the Santa Monica Airport with his wife and four children. His wife is a stay-at-home mom and he began fixing cars and appliances to help the family cut back on expenses. “Everyone wants the white-collar pastor, but in reality everybody wants Jeff because he comes and fixes their cars,” said McCulty’s 17-year-old daughter Brittany. McCulty has made sure to pass along his handiness to his children, teaching them how to work on cars at an early age. Two years ago he started a racing club at the church and all three of his daughters joined. The racing team hasn’t competed recently because of expenses, but McCulty’s daughters now have a basic understanding of cars, even helping their friends change tires. “They all have confidence with cars now.

BEHIND THE WHEEL: Jeff McCulty is the type of pastor who fixes cars for his parishioners.

You’re not going to pull the wool over most of their eyes, or they’ll call me,” he joked. Born in Syracuse, N.Y., McCulty received a degree in engineering from the Rochester Institute of Technology. Raised Catholic, it was a girl who introduced him to the Southern Baptist faith during college and then a job with Douglas Aircraft in Long Beach that brought him to the West Coast. After 12 years as a youth pastor near Lake Isabella, he calls the Church on Pearl his opportunity to move to Santa Monica, recalling that he forgot to bring socks to wear for his interview. “The folks that were here at the time, they were the type of people that built their own stuff, took care of their own stuff,” McCulty

said. “They just saw all that, they saw who I was and said, ‘This guy can take care of it.’” Because the church was struggling financially when he first arrived, he became a part-time pastor while simultaneously working the graveyard shift as a security guard down at the pier. The church continues to work with a small budget, but for McCulty, money is irrelevant when it comes to serving his parish and the community. “We don’t have any money, it doesn’t matter,” he said. “It felt like for so long churches took and took and took. We want to be the church that gives and gives and gives." news@smdp.com

Padres’ Edgar Gonzalez in hospital after beaning THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SAN DIEGO Padres second baseman Edgar Gonzalez remained hospitalized Sunday with dizziness after he was he was hit in the head by a 93 mph pitch Saturday night. Gonzalez did not have a skull fracture or a concussion but complained of dizziness and ringing in his ears, San Diego manager Bud Black said. “They might do the same tests again, sort of a follow up just to make sure,” Black said.

“There’s a lot of good signs.” Black said Gonzalez still does not have 100 percent of his hearing back. Gonzalez’s return is uncertain. “I think you have to wait and see,”Black said. “We’ll have to wait for the doctor’s evaluation.” Gonzalez was hit with a fastball from Colorado’s Jason Hammel near the left ear hole on his batting helmet in the sixth inning. He immediately grabbed his head and fell to the ground. He remained clutching his head in a

prone position for several minutes before finally sitting up. Gonzalez needed helped walking to a cart that took him off the field. “He was aware of what happened,he was aware of his surroundings, he was aware of being hit and what was going on around him,” Black said. San Diego All-Star Adrian Gonzalez, Edgar’s brother, was relieved the day following the beaning but still had a hard time shaking the incident. “It’s kind of hard to describe.” said Adrian, who was watching video in a room off the

dugout when Edgar was beaned. “I saw it happen (on TV) and I just felt like I lost all my strength. I tried to get up to go outside and I felt like I might fall to the ground if I got up, so I just stayed in the chair.” Adrian was removed from the game at the end of the inning and looked visibly upset as he left the dugout to go to the hospital. “When they got him up and they started moving him, that’s a good sign,” Adrian said. “But still, you don’t know anything until you get those tests done in the hospital."

COLLEGE FOOTBALL

Holtz, Cooper, Aikman head Hall of Fame class TOM COYNE AP Sports Writer

SOUTH BEND, Ind. Lou Holtz and John Cooper were enshrined into the College Football Hall of Fame on Saturday night wishing they had another team to lead out on the field. “I would love to get back coaching. I miss coaching. I miss the competition. I miss game day,” said Cooper, who coached at Ohio State, Arizona State and Tulsa. “I don’t miss compliance and academics and recruiting.” Holtz couldn’t speak much louder than a whisper after coaching a group of former Notre Dame players for three days as they practiced for an exhibition game in Japan. He still sounded like his old self, though, hardly giving his team a chance against the Japanese. “If Rudy came back he would be our star,” Holtz said of the school’s most famous walkon. “And Charlie Weis runs faster than any running back we have.” Jim Donnan, who coached at Marshall and Georgia, poked at Holtz for choosing an overseas opponent. “One thing about Lou, he knows how to schedule,” Donnan said. “Playing the Japanese he has a good chance of winning.” Holtz and Cooper agreed that the key to their successful careers were great players. “The difference between a good coach and a Hall of Fame coach is players,” Cooper said. “You win with people. Show me a winning coach and I’ll show you a coach that has good players.” Among the others honored Saturday were former UCLA quarterback Troy Aikman, former Oklahoma State tailback Thurman Thomas, former Army quarterback Arnold Tucker and John Cooper, who coached at Ohio State, Arizona State and Tulsa. Thomas, who still holds the Oklahoma State records for career rushing with 4,595 yards and went to four straight Super Bowls with the Buffalo Bills, joked his biggest accomplishment might have been keeping Barry Sanders on the bench for two years. “I practiced real hard and kept giving my coach a lot of money,” he said. Former Syracuse quarterback Don McPherson,

the Heisman Trophy runner-up in 1987,said being enshrined was a surreal experience. “Because I don’t see myself in the same class as some of the guys that are in the Hall of Fame, like this guy right here,” McPherson said as former Arizona State offensive guard Randall McDaniel walked past. “It’s fun just to be associated with these guys. I’m just a fan of college football. So for me, it’s just fun to be around.” The festivities began Saturday with a parade and a pep rally, where those being honored were given their Hall of Fame blazers. The biggest applause was for Holtz. Shouts of “Looouuu” rang out when he was introduced and again when he was given his jacket. Former LSU tailback Billy Cannon was enshrined into the hall 26 years after he was first elected. He was selected for the Hall of Fame in 1983, but that honor was rescinded after he was arrested on federal counterfeiting charges. Cannon pleaded guilty and was sentenced to five years in prison in 1983. He served 20 years. Cannon, who won the Heisman in 1959 and played on the national championship team in 1958, said he holds no grudges about being the only person to ever have his selection rescinded. “I thank the people who voted for me initially, and I really thank the people who voted for me the second time,” said Cannon, who is now the dental director at the Louisiana State Penitentiary. “To be in this hall and to be associated with the great players who have played this game in the past and to be associated with the great players who will play this game in the future, it’s just an unbelievable thrill,” he said. Cannon didn’t have the longest wait to get in, though. That honor went to former Army quarterback Arnold Tucker, who went undefeated at Army, going 27-0-1 from 1944-46 playing with Heisman Trophy winners Doc Blanchard and Glenn Davis, known as Mr. Inside and Mr. Outside. “It came as quite a surprise, and it certainly was unanticipated,” Tucker said. “I’m a big fan of Troy Aikman and Billy Cannon. I’m a fan of them and their play. So it’s a real distinct honor to be associated with them."

Be out late tonight, Virgo ARIES (March 21-April 19)

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

★★★★ Center yourself. Others watch chaos disassemble around you. If you are open and willing, many options will come up. You are known for occasional brusqueness. Tonight: Happily head home.

★★★★ Take a stand and make sure others receive your ultimate message. If people or associates don't get what you represent, how can they know how valid or effective your concepts are? Tonight: Out late.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

★★★★★ Keep communication flowing. Think about and consider an offer that might involve a financial investment. Tonight: Hang with a friend.

★★★★★ Push your perceptions; work to understand a situation better. Eventually, you'll find a midpoint of agreement. How you handle a friend and your ability to understand and incorporate his or her ideas. Tonight: Watch a movie or relax to music.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) ★★★ If you would like to turn in a different direction, you will have a lot of explaining to do. Your decisions are more conceptual than financial. Realize that others will challenge you. Tonight: Gather your bills first.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) ★★★★★ Your instincts kick in, especially with a financial risk. Consider other opportunities that head in your direction. Your personality melts others' resistances, though clearly someone creates a lot of frustration in your life. Tonight: As the crow flies, head to fun.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) ★★★★ Know what you are doing with key people in your life. Think before you agree to a financial plan, as it could do more than toss your life upside down. Take care of yourself first, despite a strong crosscurrent. This person has another take on the same issue.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ★★★★★ Do more listening. You could find more information and insights. Be careful if you still feel that your way is the only way, because the response might not be what you calculated. Tonight: Let a partner or friend make the final call.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) ★★★ Listen to your inner voice. It is feeding you information. Pressure builds between you and an associate. This person has different ideas. Ask questions. Tonight: Others appreciate your openness.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ★★★★ Focus on completing your job or project. You might get many different takes on which way to go. Remember, the only person who can control you is you. Give up the thought of being controlled or pushed. Tonight: Discover a new stress-buster.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ★★★★★ Focus on your objectives. Stay centered concerning a project. Know what you want if you are considering a friend's ideas. Different goals could reflect different intentions. Deal with fundamentals, and you'll be on top of your game. Listen to suggestions openly. Tonight: A meeting or talk could be very important.

Happy birthday

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) ★★★★★ Creativity continues to be your strong suit. Listen to your inner voice with a family member. Understand that a friend could be pushy, but he or she only wants you to support him or her or endorse his or her thoughts. Is there some other way you could add to this person's security? Tonight: Have fun.

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

Often, your life will take strange, unanticipated turns. Your ability to understand will take you in a new direction and keep you out of scalding water. If you feel that a situation is hot, know that there is something you want to release. Take another look at a situation before the battle. What is the real issue for you? For others? By determining this issue, you might decrease your stress level and the possibility of conflict. If you are single, you are the prince or princess of charisma. Let this magic do its work. If you are attached, this year you will have a tendency to be one-sided and somewhat self-centered. Other CANCERS can be challenging.

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

CHUCK

SHEPARD

Ronnie Darnell Bell, 30, was arrested in Dallas in February 1998 and charged with attempting to rob the Federal Reserve Bank. (In the 1995 movie "Die Hard With a Vengeance," knocking off the New York Fed required a small army of men and truckloads of weapons.) According to police, Bell was initially confused because there are no tellers, and so handed a security guard his note, reading, "This is a bank robbery of the Dallas Federal Reserve Bank, of Dallas, Texas, give me all the money. Thank you, Ronnie Darnell Bell." The guard pushed a silent alarm while an oblivious Bell chatted amiably, revealing that only minutes earlier he had tried to rob a Postal Service office, but that, "They threw me out."

TODAY IN HISTORY Apollo 11 astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin became the first men to walk on the moon after landing their lunar module. As he set foot on the lunar surface, Armstrong spoke his famous line, "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." Aldrin, who followed, described the scene as "magnificent desolation." Colombia declared independence from Spain. The Congress of the Confederate States began holding sessions in Richmond, Va. British Columbia entered Confederation as a Canadian province. The draft lottery in World War I went into operation. An attempt by a group of German officials to assassinate Adolf Hitler with a bomb failed as the explosion at Hitler's Rastenburg headquarters only wounded the Nazi leader. President Franklin D. Roosevelt was nominated for an unprecedented fourth term of office at the Democratic convention in Chicago. The Geneva Accords divided Vietnam into northern and southern entities.
