■ Joseph Weir, 23, who confessed to New York City police in May to forcibly licking the feet of as many as 70 women, said he didn’t mean to hurt anyone but just wanted “to make them laugh and smile and open to talk to me.” “I get on my knees, grab their feet and bow,” he said (according to a New York Post story). “I compliment women, I bow to them.” ■ In June, British worker Mr. Sivanadian Perananthasivam was awarded three months’ paid leave plus medical expenses after proving that a supervisor had used two colloquial terms for the man’s posterior during an angry office exchange. ■ The Supreme Court of Canada affirmed in June that a woman divorced seven years ago is still so fragile from her husband’s leaving her that she should continue to get spousal support (in spite of Canada’s no-fault divorce law). ■ Two New Jersey schoolboys separately complained recently that in yearbook sports photos, a tiny portion of their genitals can be seen up the legs of their shorts. (A Colts Neck High School student’s lawsuit was dismissed in June, and a Phillipsburg High School student is pondering a lawsuit, even though a school official ordered the offending page ripped out of all books.)

THIRD STREET — A large swath of downtown buildings and businesses, including those on the west side of the bustling Promenade, remained shrouded in darkness on Sunday evening, more than 24 hours after a pair of electrical vaults exploded and caused widespread blackouts. As record-setting temperatures persisted throughout the region, hundreds of electrical transformers failed throughout Los Angeles County over the weekend, prompting blackouts, store closures and snarled traffic. Shortly after 5 p.m. on Saturday, two Edison Company transformer vaults — located in an alley east of Second Street, on the south side of Alejandro Cesar Cantarero II/Daily Press

URBAN OUTSIDERS: An employee tries to keep order outside Urban Outfitters on the Third Street Promenade on Sunday afternoon in the wake of a major power outage downtown. The Santa Monica fire marshal limited the store to 30 customers at a given time due to the lack of electricity and ventilation. Urban Outfitters was one of few stores on the west side of the Promenade open for business after two electrical transformer vaults exploded on Saturday afternoon.

SMC — The future of California’s economy — the world’s fifth largest — lies in the development and mass distribution of alternative fuels as viable competition for an increasingly unstable world oil market. That’s according to state lawmakers and auto industry insiders who testified here Friday during a hearing that provided updates on the progress of developing and marketing alternative fuels such as ethanol, bio-diesel and hydrogen.

COMMUNITY BRIEFS A banner day on the Promenade By Daily Press staff

Artist Lita Albuquerque was selected by the Bayside District Corp. and the Santa Monica Arts Commission from a pool of Santa Monica artists to create new banners for the Third Street Promenade. The art banners — collectively titled “Dark Iris” — will be unveiled Thursday, Aug. 3, at 5 p.m. on the Third Street Promenade. Undertaking the project, Albuquerque found inspiration in the astronomy, history and the “hidden body of information indigenous to the Promenade,” said the artist working from her studio at Santa Monica’s 18th Street Arts Center. “I wanted to align the idea of strolling with a visual sequence that people would ‘read’ as they walk along the promenade — a sort of story that could be picked up and ‘read’ anytime during the sequence.” The banners, silk-screened on mesh fabric, feature deep, rich colors that contrast dramatically with the commercial signage of the district. Eighteen banners with images on both front and back will be situated along the busy shopping district. While each banner has its own title and identity, the 36 images combine to form Dark Iris. Albuquerque describes the work as a tone poem, variations on a theme that “imagines the earth as the iris of a universal eye, regulating light by expanding and contracting the pupil.” Taking the ideas of a leisurely stroll, cosmic imagery and the sky, Albuquerque hopes observers will have fun figuring out the meaning of the words and images. “The entire series of images is meant to remind us of our capacity to envision and to have vision,” she said.

This week, let’s all take a sip of our drinks and chill a bit, as it’s entirely too hot to get all heated. Take stock and wax poetic on what’s good about Santa Monica; what brought us here to live in the first place, or remain here. So this week, Q-Line wants to know: What are the best things about living in Santa Monica? What are we appreciating out there?

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Pedestrians caught up in a bad cycle Editor:

With your front page article entitled “City a dead-end for riders” (SMDP, July 18) you have undone two years of work that I’ve devoted to getting bicycles off the sidewalk. You mention Boulder, Colo., where I’ve corresponded with a couple who have also worked very hard to get bicycles off the sidewalk. The SMPD have focused on this issue, the Transportation Department have had meetings where over 60 persons have said they want bicycles off the sidewalk. You have devoted one short sentence to “fleeing to the pedestrian pavement “ in a manner that comes through as “but go ahead and be safe.” You are a bleeding heart for bicyclists in your article. Nothing is said about the rude manner of bicyclists, the arrogance, the threat to pedestrians, handicapped person, mothers pushing baby carriages, those persons who have no place else to walk but sidewalks and are forced to either step aside or be injured by the bullying tactics of the many bicycle riders who insist upon riding on the sidewalks. Many bicyclists have never taken the time to learn the laws surrounding riding bicycles. They bully their way on sidewalks, cut across four-plus lanes of traffic in the middle of an intersection to get where they want to go and are a wild bullet, a renegade. They are heartily disliked by both vehicles and pedestrians. Yes, there are some professional bicyclists who follow the laws, show courtesy and respect, but over 90 percent of bicyclists appear to feel they are “entitled” because they are not using gas and are self-powered. Sidewalks are for pedestrians, persons who need to get around on foot and want to walk. It is great danger to pedestrians to have Segways, skateboards, motor scooters who are already using sidewalks and for which no regulations have been put into place. Ordinances are in place for bicycles — as you state in your article, it is illegal for them to be on the sidewalks, but nevertheless, they are on the sidewalks. At times when SMPD has been successful in getting a few bicycles off the sidewalk, the pedestrian traffic has greatly increased. Pedestrians are threatened when a minimum of 150 pounds, going at a speed of 15-25 mph is coming toward one on the sidewalk. And there are still many people who enjoy walking. Accidents between pedestrians and bicycles are not kept separate from other injuries for pedestrians so there is no way of knowing how often a collision happens. I personally have been knocked into the bushes on Ocean Avenue by a bicyclist. I’ve talked with numerous persons who have been injured from hits from bicyclists. I know of one instance in Manhattan Beach where a woman, 60 years of age was knocked to the sidewalk, serious head injury and died. A fall to a senior citizen caused by a bicyclist can well mean the end. There is not room on the sidewalk for a bicycle and pedestrians. It appears there is a feeling of territorialism, bicyclists feel they have a right to ride on the sidewalk. Bicycles are vehicles. Bicyclists are not required to be licensed, they many times have no lights, if one is hit by a bicyclist, the bicyclist will not always stop. There are sites on the Internet written by police personnel specifying the importance of enforcement of bicycle laws. Special training is offered to police personnel. Because of the extreme rudeness of many bicyclists, they are scorned by drivers of vehicles as well as pedestrians. In short, they have a bad rep due largely to their own arrogance and lack of courtesy. Please clean up your great defense of bicyclists by using your paper to defend pedestrians’ rights. Please give more than one short sentence to the great danger posed by bicyclists riding on the sidewalk. Please do a bit more research before publishing such a onesided view of bicyclists. Traffic is way too heavy in Southern California to have the disregard for laws that many bicyclists display. Attack the system for lack of bicycle paths (paths which many times are not used by bicyclists, i.e., Venice Blvd., Ocean Park Blvd., Main Street) and do not justify the rudeness of the large number of bicyclists. M. L. Duncan Santa Monica

Police getting bad rap for crackdown in Pico MY WRITE BY BILL BAUER

I’ve been buying seafood from Juan for years. Among the filets of fish, we often talk about life in the Pico neighborhood, where Juan and his family have lived for a long time. A couple months ago, Juan told me about black and Hispanic adolescent males that were hanging out in the northeast corner of Virginia Park. “They talk trash, smoke dope, drink 40s (beer), vandalize park furniture and carve placas and gang signs. My wife and I don’t walk there anymore,” he said. A few days later, Juan told me they stopped hanging out in the park. I told him that someone probably called the police about a situation that needed looking into. I don’t know what the police did about the law breakers Juan described, but I’m sure they made contact and the young men decided to hang out somewhere less public. I’d bet they told their friends they were “harassed” and that the “pigs keep jacking us.” And, they probably didn’t care if their loutish, criminal behavior was driving off families and other kids afraid of confrontation and violence. The good news is that Juan and his wife are using the park again, but they’re still angry about those few who spoil it for the rest of us. The bad news is the parents of these young men probably have no idea what their kids were really up to beyond maybe being told, “the cops screw with us.” The local press (SMDP, July 17 and July 19, page 1) ran articles about two rancorous meetings of the Pico Neighborhood Association (PNA) and the Virginia Park Advisory Board (VPAB). Some Pico neighbors wanted more police patrols, while others felt there is already too much police scrutiny and that officers have it in for neighborhood youth. It seems no matter what law enforcement does, it isn’t right.

An outspoken critic of neighborhood police presence and who insists that “all young Latinos are suspects” is a PNA board member whose 20-year-old son was arrested on July 12 for battery on a peace officer. Gina De Baca was quoted (SMDP, July 17, page 8) as saying of that charge, “My son did nothing wrong. He did not break the law.” However, the record shows that De Baca’s son was charged with the same crime in 2004, although the charges were dropped. According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff Web site and Los Angeles Superior Court records, he was convicted the same year for possession of a controlled substance for sale. In January 2006, he was arrested and charged as an ex-felon in possession of a firearm, and two weeks ago, arrested and charged with a second battery on a peace officer. Based on comments made at the VPAB meeting, it seems that some folks think the police have nothing to do except target lawabiding Pico neighborhood youth. I doubt that’s the case. The problem is that the general public is getting weary of charges and demands. The complainers are losing credibility and sympathy. There seems to be a growing “they made their own bed, let them lie in it” response to anything that goes on between Pico Boulevard and the 10 Freeway — and that’s a tragedy. Casting the police, whose mission is to stop the violence and ensure safe neighborhoods, as “villains and instigators” compounds the problem and fosters more distrust on all sides. Nothing’s going to get any better or safer as long as people play the blame game. Parents, the schools and the churches all need to get much more involved with our children. Anything meaningful must start in the home. Expecting government to sweep in, stop the violence and perform miracles is as likely to happen as FEMA rushing in to rescue the residents of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. There’s no one magic formula that’ll make everything “OK.” That only happens in bad movies and fairy tales. (Bill Bauer can be reached at mr.bilbau@gmail.com.)

Homeless court can RECYCLE NOW! make a difference

CRV ALUMINUM CANS: $1.40 per lb. (Up to $1.60 per lb.) Drop-off donation bins available 24 hours in front

BY ED EDELMAN

Stories like this one from San Diego are unfolding in cities across the country: Jack received three illegal lodging tickets for sleeping under a bridge. He sought services and transitional housing at St. Vincent de Paul Village. As he progressed through his case plan, it became clear that those tickets were a barrier to employment. After completing his rehabilitation program, Jack appeared before Homeless Court, where the outstanding charges were dismissed based on his rehabilitation strides. He is now night shift supervisor for a major downtown hotel, earning $18 an hour. We will soon see more success stories like Jack’s in Santa Monica. The county of Los Angeles, at Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky’s request and with the unanimous support of the Board of Supervisors, has made available $500,000 to establish a Homeless Community Court with enhanced services for Santa Monica. These funds will allow Santa Monica to more effectively deal with the chronic homeless already living on the streets in Santa Monica by applying a unique problem-solving approach now being utilized with great success in Midtown Manhattan. The police and prosecutors already know the chronically homeless in Santa Monica who will come before or be treated by the court. The court will use a “carrot and stick” approach. The purpose of the Santa Monica Homeless Community Court is to link homeless offenders committing “quality of life” crimes in Santa Monica — like sleeping in parks and doorways, being intoxicated in public, among other minor offenses — to services and/or appropriate sentence by a judge. Appearance in court thus becomes an opportunity to break the cycle of homeless-

ness rather than a perfunctory visit to the courthouse or the typical revolving door from streets, jail, to streets again, often without meaningful connection to therapeutic services. Presently, most homeless offenders cited for quality of life crimes by the Santa Monica Police Department do not appear to answer their citations. The citations require them to appear at the criminal courts building near LAX, many miles from Santa Monica. Lacking transportation and, in many cases, organizational skills, most of these homeless offenders never make it to court to receive an appropriate sentence or referral to services which could help them change their lives. The establishment of a community court in Santa Monica to hear these cases is an important and logical step in the process of addressing homelessness. A judge with specific knowledge about this population and with back-up support of trained personnel to recommend treatment and/or other referrals can produce life-altering interventions. The very fact that repeat offenders must appear before the same judge will make these offenders more accountable for their behavior and reduce the revolving door problem plaguing the system. Police, prosecutors, public defenders, service providers and the judge will work together to effectively assist the offender to overcome obstacles to their getting off the streets. Anyone participating in this program must complete the court-mandated rehabilitation or risk jail time. Any receipt of services through the Homeless Community Court would be conditioned upon compliance with the court’s requirements. I saw firsthand the effectiveness of this type of court in Midtown Manhattan earlier in the year and am convinced that it will be of enormous value in Santa Monica. I believe it will become a model to be established in other areas of the region.

A nose for art PROFILES, from page 1

first 32 years of his life, he was confined to his house and never saw beyond what he could take in from the window of his Bathurst, New Brunswick home. Legacy’s father didn’t want anyone to see him; his parents taking him out once or twice a year to look at Christmas lights under the cover of night. Legacy didn’t get his first wheelchair until age 22, moving around on his back, learning to count by using the bathroom’s ceiling tiles. He’s never taken an art class, but earned his GED in 1986 at Moncton Community College, where he took classes in creative writing, computer programming and law. Born into a household of eleven children, he is the only one working as an artist, staging workshops for children and encouraging them to paint “any way but normal.” For the past year, Legacy has lived in Santa Monica with his fiancé, Sandi Glendinning. The two are to be married in Las Vegas next month, marking nine years together. Four days a week the couple ride — Legacy on his wheelchair, Glendinning on her bicycle — to the Third Street Promenade, where Legacy paints and the two sell their homemade cards, paintings and documentary DVDs. Last week, Legacy (with Glendinning helping to translate) took time out with the Daily Press to discuss a cold upbringing, a resilient resolve and a colorful future that includes Vegas wedding bells. IN YOUR DOCUMENTARY, YOU SAID, ‘I CANNOT BE WHO I AM NOT; I CAN ONLY BE WHO I AM.’ HOW LONG DID IT TAKE YOU TO REACH A POINT WHERE YOU STOP ASKING YOURSELF, ‘WHY ME?’

Legacy: “I knew this all my life. I realized it and got it the first time I was on my own, going backwards in my chair. I could do it on my own. I can’t do anything about my situation, the way that I am, but I can work with what I’ve got.” When did Gille start painting? What made him think of using his nose? Glendinning: “At 8 years old. He couldn’t use his hands and he used to scoot around on his back until he got his wheelchair. He used to do little figurines on the wall. He had to figure it out really quickly, so he just used the nose. Nobody else in Gille’s family is artistic at all. Nobody had that talent in his family. It’s a way for him to express himself.”

Alejandro Cesar Cantarero II/Daily Press Gille Legacy and his artwork are a staple on the Third Street Promenade, where he paints before a curious public.

Glendinning: “He painted one for some reason, it was around Christmastime in 2004. He does a lot of birds, angels, sailboats. They’re free. Water, mountains. His father would only allow, once or twice a year, for him to go to the backseat of the car at night to look at the lights. The excitement of those lights are the colors in his work today.” DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE COLOR?

Glendinning: “Yellow, red, purple. One time, we were looking at this magnificent sunset over the water in Canada, and I name off maybe six colors, and Gille says, ‘But don’t you see…?’ and he must have named off 25 colors. He sees colors that we don’t see. He just sees, he’s very observant.” WHAT DID YOU DREAM ABOUT GROWING UP TO BE?

Legacy: “When I was little, I wanted to be a doctor or a radio announcer. I loved the radio and I always pictured myself talking. That’s how I used to learn about life, listening to the radio, paid attention to the news to see what was going on. Now, I listen to KLOS’ Mark and Brian.”

WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR INSPIRATION?

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE INTERNET?

Legacy: “I never really know until I’m done. It’s like a drop of water, a tap, and I just let it flow, just start going, wherever it’s going.” Glendinning: “You can be watching Gille painting and leave for a few seconds and come back, and just when you think he’s doing something, he’ll do something different and it’ll completely change.”

Legacy: “It’s a dangerous move. On one hand, it makes people lazy. It makes people powerful. But it is amazing that anything you can think, you can look on the Internet and it’s there. It’s an amazing tool. If you give a child the equipment, they can develop their own mind. I had the time to do it, but not the tools. I taught myself math by lying on my back in the bathroom and counting the tiles on the ceiling. If I had that computer when I was little, I would have been a genius.”

DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR FIRST PAINTING? WHAT WAS IT?

Legacy: “No, it was a bird. A long one. I did it on the floor, on my side when I was 8. I was moving around a lot easier back then, did larger paintings in the 70s and 80s.” DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE?

Glendinning: “There’s a few he wouldn’t sell. That angel. Someone’s trying to buy that one, but he’s trying to hold on to it. That was the first angel he painted. That’s why he likes her. And one of me and Gille.” WHY DO YOU PAINT ANGELS?

WHY DID YOUR DAD KEEP YOU IN THE HOUSE?

Legacy: “Times and things were different. When you had a child like me, you were a failure in society. It was (my father’s) fault somehow to have a handicapped child, so if he could hide him somehow, then he wouldn’t have to deal with it. And they did that to the handicapped children at that time. It’s not like now, where everything is out and in the open. I believe in my heart, there’s still a lot of places in Canada that it still happens.”

DID YOUR DAD EVER SEE YOUR PAINTINGS?

Legacy: “He didn’t think anything of it, never gave me any encouragement. When I wrote my first book, my dad didn’t believe I wrote it, didn’t ever believe I could do anything; never gave me credit for anything.” Glendinning: “When you know better, and you still have no way out, it’s very frustrating. Even when you know he shouldn’t have that type of control, but you have no power and you can’t get out, you’re just stuck there. That’s what I didn’t understand. Even when his dad passed away and Gille moved out and was gonna go to the wake, his mom said, ‘Gille you can’t go, Daddy will get mad.’ And even though he was dead, she was still so scared, never spoke out against him. There was no touching Gille, but he was still very abusive. He drank and was mentally, verbally abusive. None of the brothers or sisters would have anything to do with their dad. Most of the siblings were kicked out by the age of 16. If they didn’t do it his way, they were out of the house. He was really a rough man. And Gille’s mom was so opposite. She was just the most unreal person, an unreal lady. She was a little teeny lady, five feet tall, had all these children. She was Gille’s rock and he was her rock.” DO YOU REMEMBER THE FIRST TIME YOU WERE OUT OF THE HOUSE?

Glendinning: “The first time Gille went out of his house without his mom was City Hall and they were having a protest. Gille’s a big advocate. He’s written a lot of protest literature and letters to the editor since then.” WHEN YOU FIRST WENT OUT OF THE HOUSE, DID YOU FACE ANY DISCRIMINATION?

Glendinning: “People would stare. Friends of ours would ask us why we were together. We’re different, but here in Santa Monica, everybody’s different. We’re on the Promenade one day, and this woman comes up to us and she said, ‘Are you his sister,’ and I said, ‘No, I’m his wife’ and she asks, ‘Are you sure? How can that be? I mean, sexually. How does he perform sexually?’ So I said that I didn’t know her well enough to answer that type of question, and even if I did know her I might not answer that question. So Gille laughs, cause that’s what he does, and Gille just goes, ‘Tell her we do it with bungee

cords.’ People stare all the time, and Gille just says, ‘It’s their loss. It’s a missed opportunity for them. Don’t worry about that.’” WHEN DID YOU START LIVING INDEPENDENTLY?

Glendinning: “When he was 32 years old, he talked his parents into letting him move to a whole other city, to a brand new rehabilitation center for people with spine injuries or cerebral policy. He would ask, ‘What’s a bank,’ and I would have to tell him that’s where you keep your money. He always saw his mom do that stuff, but he didn’t know what those things were — going to the bank, buying groceries, getting a cup of coffee.” Legacy: “I remember the first thing I bought. It was an alarm clock and I was so proud of it.” HOW DO YOU GUYS LIKE LIVING IN SANTA MONICA?

Glendinning: “We love it; we do love it. We didn’t actually plan on living here when we came from Canada. We were gonna live in Orange County. We were originally gonna go down to Laguna Beach and live down there, but we hadn’t arranged for an apartment yet. We were gonna stay with a friend of mine ... and got rid of everything we owned. Didn’t sell a thing, just gave everything away to friends and family and whatever, and we packed six suitcases — I think five of them were filled with Gille’s art, which is what we needed to bring. We brought all his paintings, shipped a couple of tubs down, but not much. When we arrived we said, ‘Why rush right down, we’ll stay in Santa Monica overnight.’” HOW DID YOU AND SANDI MEET?

Glendinning: “We met in Canada in 1997. August will be our ninth anniversary and we’re getting married in Vegas. Our wedding’s going to be at the little place called the Princess Chapel. It’s supposed to be this little church type chapel. I wanted to get married here at the beach, but Gille wanted to get married in Vegas, so we found every reason we could to get married in Vegas. It’ll be my first time in Vegas. The beach I’ve already seen.” See PROFILES, page 8

WAS IT DIFFICULT TO COMMUNICATE OR UNDERSTAND EACH OTHER WHEN YOU FIRST MET?

Glendinning: “If you spent an hour or two with Gille, it would take you a while to understand him, but you’ll get it. You just really have to listen because Gille speaks the same all the time. We had a lot of patience. Gille has a lot of perseverance and patience. If he wants you to understand something, he’ll find a way for you to understand it. It’s easier for me if I’m looking at Gille, but I still have problems with certain words, but for the most part we’re okay. But Gille speaks French, that’s his mother tongue in Canada, so that was his first language and the French rolls off his tongue a lot easier. Gille’s very persistent. After we met a couple of years, he started writing his fourth book, ‘The Matchbox,’ and we did a lot of dictating. And that book he typed it; it took him a year and a half to type it. So that helped us. And a lot of talking. Gille and I are never in a hurry, we can’t be. We plan out as best we can so we’re not late, but things just take more time with Gille.” HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT HOW YOU’RE LIVING NOW?

Legacy: “I can’t believe it. I’m all on my own.” IS SELLING THE PAINTINGS AND THE CARDS ENOUGH TO BRING IN A GOOD INCOME?

Glendinning: “Yeah, it’s enough. People come over and buy his paintings, so he sold a few of his big originals too. He had a big show out in the desert in April where he sold a lot. That was in Palm Springs. He sold 35 of his little ones for more than he does on

the Promenade and he sold several of his big ones too. Between that and selling his originals, we do well. And donations, a lot of donations, people are very generous here. We go every weekend for sure. We try to work Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday. But if we need money, we work more. We work between four to six hours. We’re very lucky. We’ve got a pretty good life. We have everything we need.” DO YOU WANT TO CONTRIBUTE TO A CEREBRAL PALSY FUND?

Legacy: “I’m too busy just keeping us surviving. But one of my big dreams is to start a cerebral palsy foundation, a non-profit camp like the place I went one of the first times I left home, to a Rotary camp for handicapped kids. So I want to start Camp Legacy, where kids with handicaps come and learn art. One of the first times I left my house was to go to the hospital and I always wonder how I could hurt myself so I could go back there. I loved that hospital. I loved it. Everybody knew me; I was there for 10 days. Great bed, good food. I ended up in one of the operating rooms to watch; they had to escort me out. Very curious about everything. What’s behind that door, behind that mountain?” IS THERE ANYTHING YOU WANT TO DO THAT YOU HAVEN’T DONE?

Glendinning: “Skydiving. We checked into that actually. He loves flying in helicopters. He loves flying.” DO YOU HAVE ANY FEARS?

Legacy: “Once a month, when rent is due. That’s the only fear I have.”

State taking lead in alternative fuel race ALTERNATIVE FUEL, from page 1

With developing nations in Asia expected to increase their oil consumption by 50 percent in the next 25 years — from 15 to 32 million barrels a day — California and the rest of the United States can expect to see gas prices skyrocket, said Michael Smith, director of governmental affairs for the California Energy Commission. Coupled with political uncertainty in Iraq, Iran and other major oil producers, that could cripple commerce in the state — the world’s second largest consumer of gasoline and diesel behind only the entire United States. That is, unless companies here begin to invest in alternative fuel technology, energy experts said. By becoming a leader in the development and use of alternative, renewable fuels, California can reinvigorate its economy by becoming a supplier for the rest of the nation and beyond. The new energy sources will also help improve air quality and keep the coastline free of offshore oil drilling. “With demand only expected to rise, we’ll need to narrow the gap between supply and demand,” Smith said. “It will be important to cut back or invest in alternative fuels. Failing to do so could be an enormous drain on our economy.” The hearing was called by state Assembly member Fran Pavley, D-Santa Monica, a leader in protecting the environment and chair of the Assembly Select Committee on Air and Water Quality. Pavley was joined by state Sen. Sheila Kuehl (D-Santa Monica), Assembly members Ted Lieu (D-Torrance), and Pedro Nava (D-Santa Barbara), along with City Councilman Kevin McKeown. They heard testimony from representatives of Southern California Edison, the California Renewable Fuels Partnership, General Motors and Honda. Also present were representatives from companies specializing in the manufacturing of renewable fuels, such as Ceres, Inc.

and Community Fuels. While far behind Europe in the mass marketing and distribution of alternative fuels, California is poised to become a major player, that is, if funding is made available to entice gas station owners to build the infrastructure needed to supply the next generation of automobiles with the environmentally friendly fuel, those who testified said. The state has embarked on a BioEnergy Action Plan with goals of establishing California as a market leader in technological innovation, sustainable biomass development and marketing. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who drives a hybrid Hummer, has set goals for the production of biofuels — gas made from plants such as corn, soybeans or algae. By 2010, the state should produce 20 percent of its biofuels in-house, according to the action plan. The projections jump to 40 percent by 2020 and 75 percent by 2050. By 2010, 20 percent of all energy used in the state must come from renewable fuels. Pavley is sponsoring legislation that would require the state Legislature to develop a strategy for diversifying the fuel supply through the increased use of alternative fuels. The bill, AB 1007, was introduced in 2005 to reduce the state’s dependency on foreign oil, cleaning up the environment in the process. Pavley has also introduced a bill that would require the Department of General Services and the Energy Commission to develop fuel economy standards for the state’s fleet of vehicles and use those standards for any vehicle purchased after Jan. 1, 2008. “Oil still has a stranglehold on our transportation system,” Pavley said. “California should be leading the way in reducing the nation’s addiction to oil. With the technological advances we have, this state could become an economic example in alternative energy sources to the rest of the world.”

Power use is through roof By The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — California set a single-day record for power use last week as the state continued to bake in a heat wave that has sent temperatures soaring above 100 degrees from the north to the south. The demand for electricity peaked at 4:28 p.m. on Friday, when 49,036 megawatts of power was used across the state, the California Independent System Operator said. The previous record of 46,561 megawatts was set Monday. The temperature reached 120 degrees in the desert resort town of Palm Springs, shattering a 54-year-old record for the date of 117 degrees. It was 112 in Los Angeles’ Woodland Hills section, breaking the 1976 record by 2 degrees and marking the 16th consecutive day temperatures exceeded 100. "We are on par for having one of the hottest Julys on record, at least in Woodland Hills,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Jamie Meier. “And it looks like we’ll continue the streak for the weekend.” The warmth came from a high pressure area centered over much of the mountain states that is pumping moisture and hot air from Mexico across the Southwest and into the Midwest. Highs from the 80s to the 100s were expected in the Los Angeles basin Saturday, with temperatures expected to exceed 100 in the surrounding valleys. Officials urged energy conservation, and Los Angeles park officials planned to open “cooling stations” at senior centers across the city where they will provide free water for those seeking relief.

Consideration and possible adoption of a proposed amendment to Santa Monica Rent Control Board Regulation 3028(c)(2) to prohibit the 2006 general adjustment for those units that received a rent increase pursuant to Board regulation 3304 (the tenant-not-in-occupancy regulation) on or after September 1, 2005. The proposed amendment is recommended to correct the current language in the regulation, which, if left unmodified, would not reflect the Board’s historic policy on this issue and would subject certain tenants to a general adjustment even though their rent had just been increased to market rate pursuant to a tenant-not-in-occupancy petition; 2. Consideration and possible adoption of a proposed amendment to Regulation 9002(b) to delete subparagraph (3). All interested persons are invited to present their views at these hearings. Copies of the staff reports and the proposed regulations will be available prior to the hearings in the Board’s office in Room 202 of Santa Monica City Hall, 1685 Main Street, Santa Monica, California 90401.

Cast into the darkness BLASTS, from page 1

Santa Monica Boulevard — exploded multiple times, knocking concrete container lids off the ground and sending smoke billowing into the evening sky. After assessing the extent of the damage on Saturday, officials with Edison had estimated it would take up to 24 hours to restore power following the equipment failures, but on Sunday evening, darkened street lights and closed shops still enveloped the district. Soon after the explosions on Saturday, the Santa Monica Fire Department had closed off entirely the downtown area bordered by Ocean Avenue to the west, Fourth Street to the east, Wilshire Boulevard to the north and Santa Monica Boulevard to the south. “We’ve seen in the past where one will blow, and then another and another,” said Battalion Chief Carl Bjerke of the SMFD. “This is not something that’s foreign to us. We had to clear the area of people.” Bjerke credited the record temperatures and a record demand for energy use for prompting Saturday’s explosions, which occurred on opposite sides of the alley. The transformers each handled as much as 60,000 volts.

Edison workers were surprised about the extent of damage to the equipment, reported the fire chief, as the blasts lifted two six-foot by six-foot slabs of concrete off the ground. The displaced container lids have 70-pound manhole covers embedded in them, but they were not jarred loose and sent skyward. There were no reported injuries as a result of the blasts. ‘It’s just amazing that no one was hurt, given the size of the crowds that were down there at the time,” said Bjerke. “The unfortunate part is the hit it puts on commerce, with stores shut down. The quicker they can get things back up, the better.” One store making the best of things on Sunday was Urban Outfitters on the 1400 block of the Promenade, which was allowing 30 customers in at a time to peruse the darkened racks at their own risk, sans air conditioning. According to one employee, the store’s workers were kept well hydrated and worked on a volunteer basis. With a decline in open competitors, the clothing retailer soon had would-be shoppers lining up outside its doors as darkness encroached. “I’m used to this. We have shortages all the time,” said Rosie Zelman, who was born in Brazil. “Women will do whatever they have to for their clothes. “Still, this heat’s a bummer.”

Scientists worldwide are watching temperatures rise, the land turn dry and vast forests go up in flames. In the Siberian taiga and Canadian Rockies, in southern California and Australia, researchers find growing evidence tying an upsurge in wildfires to climate change, an impact long predicted by global-warming forecasters. A team at California’s Scripps Institution, in a headlinemaking report this month, found that warmer temperatures, causing earlier snow runoff and consequently drier summers, were the key factor in an explosion of big wildfires in the U.S. West over three decades. Researchers previously reached similar conclusions in Canada, where fire is destroying an average 6.4 million acres a year, compared with 2.5 million in the early 1970s. And an upcoming U.S.-Russian-Canadian scientific paper points to links between warming and wildfires in Siberia, where 2006 already qualifies as an extreme fire season, sixth in the past eight years. Far to the south in drought-stricken Australia, meanwhile, 2005 was the hottest year on record, and the dangerous bushfire season is growing longer. “Temperature increases are intimately linked with increases in area burned in Canada, and I would expect the same worldwide,” said Mike Flannigan, a veteran Canadian Forest Service researcher. Nadezda M. Tchebakova, a climatologist at Russia’s Sukachev Institute of Forestry, said southern Siberia’s average winter temperatures in the 1980-2000 period were 2 to 4 degrees Celsius (3.6 to 7.2 degrees Fahrenheit) warmer than the pre-1960 norm. “Snowmelt starts much earlier in the spring,” she said by telephone from the Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk. “Precipitation is decreasing. This combination of elevated temperatures and decreased precipitation should provide conditions for greater fire occurrence.” As she spoke, newly ignited blazes raced through the conifer forests of Evenkiya, a summer fishing and hunting region north of Krasnoyarsk. The Sukachev institute’s satellite data show that more than 29 million acres _ an area the size of Pennsylvania _ have been burned in Russia already this year. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, an authoritative U.N.-sponsored network of scientists, has long predicted that summer drying and droughts would worsen forest fires, which in many regions are primarily set by humans.

Call it a comeback BY CURT WOODWARD

SHELL GAME

Associated Press Writer

BREMERTON, Wash. — Ankle-deep in the briny muck of a low-tide beach, Brady Blake’s hunt for bits of hard-shelled treasure has ended. Just as the state shellfish biologist hoped, this sandy stretch near an old Navy pier is home to Olympia oysters — the Pacific Northwest’s only native variety. “This is an amazing find,” Blake says, surveying fat clusters of greenish-grey Olympias clinging to rocks, concrete chunks and other shellfish. These tiny, delicate oysters once blanketed beaches along the winding shores of Puget Sound. But like other sea creatures that have fed generations here, the Olympia was hit hard by harvesting, pollution and a growing human population. Now, with help from shellfish farmers and concerned citizens alike, the native oyster is staging a comeback _ proof, some say, that Puget Sound’s edible bounty is a powerful draw for public action. After all, what better way to the people’s hearts than through their stomachs? “We can say, ‘We need to restore this pristine wilderness.’ It just doesn’t motivate people,” said David G. Gordon, coauthor of “Heaven on the Half Shell,” a book about Northwest oyster history. “If you say, ‘If you like to eat oysters, then you’ve got to get your act together,’ then they’ll get motivated.” That’s the kind of message officials working on Gov. Chris Gregoire’s ambitious Puget Sound cleanup initiative are looking for — something that prompts broad swaths of the public to get involved. Without a turnaround in public support, officials warn, the entire conservation plan may not get off the ground. “If we aren’t able to better communicate with people about the severity of problems around Puget Sound and inspire them to take action, I’m not sure we can win,” said Brad Ack, director of Gregoire’s Puget Sound Action Team. Fish of all kinds are deeply rooted in the culture of Washington state, where the largest population centers crowd around Puget Sound’s 2,500 miles of shoreline. Fishing the open water or collecting shellfish from the beach are cherished pastimes, and urban Northwesterners also are a famously outdoorsy bunch with a general soft spot for environmental causes. So it was surprising earlier this month when officials leading the new cleanup effort reported that most people surveyed believed Puget Sound’s health was just fine. In reality, scientists warn, the sound carries sediment tainted by old-line industry alongside growing threats from urban runoff, sewage and wastewater. Salmon runs are in trouble, and the area is critical habitat for endangered killer whales. For people like Peabody, that’s where shellfish come in. Efforts such as native oyster restoration can draw on the history and culture of the sound to attract people who might not otherwise get involved, she said. "Many people who are involved in this project, they don’t come at it necessarily from an environmental point of view. They come at it because they remember eating Olympia oysters back when they were young, or they remember hearing about their parents or their grandparents eating them,” she said. The state’s multimillion-dollar shellfish industry agrees, with leading growers like Taylor Shellfish Farms reaching the public through oyster recovery and a push to establish small, private shellfish beds. “I think that’s just a superb way to create a lot of interest in keeping the water clean and creating water-quality lobbyists in bigger numbers,” said Jon Rowley, a noted seafood authority from Seattle who works with Taylor Shellfish. “If somebody’s out there raising a little shellfish farm,

they’re going to want to protect them and they’re going to want to be able to eat them,” he said. It’s also a life preserver for the industry, which has seen pollution close or hamper harvest on about one-fifth of the state’s commercial shellfish beds, some 30,000 acres, according to the Restoration Fund. “It’s a great way to interact with the community as a business, but selfishly, it’s really about our longevity and trying to get people engaged about water quality,” Taylor spokesman Bill Dewey said. Puget Sound’s edible bounty also may help the cleanup effort get a national audience, in the same way Chesapeake Bay is invariably mentioned when talking about massive water restoration efforts. The state already is a major national shellfish producer with a good reputation for quality products, Rowley said.

FARALLON NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE, Calif. — On these craggy, remote islands west of San Francisco, the largest seabird colony in the contiguous United States throbs with life. Seagulls swarm so thick that visitors must yell to be heard above their cries. Sea lions bark. Pelicans glide. But the steep decline of one small bird species for the second straight year has rekindled scientists’ fears that global warming could be undermining the coastal food supply, threatening not just the Farallones but entire marine ecosystems. Tiny Cassin’s auklets live much of their lives on the open ocean. But in spring, these gray-and-white relatives of the puffin venture to isolated Pacific outposts like the Farallones to dig deep burrows and lay their eggs. Adult auklets usually feed their chicks with krill, the minuscule shrimp-like crustaceans that anchor the ocean’s complex food web. But not this year. Almost none of the 20,000 pairs of Cassin’s auklets nesting in the Farallones will raise a chick that lives more than a few days, a repeat of last year’s unprecedented breeding failure, according to Russ Bradley, a seabird biologist with the Point Reyes Bird Observatory who monitors the birds on the islands. Scientists blame changes in West Coast climate patterns for a delay in the seasonal upwelling of cold, nutrient-rich waters from the ocean’s depths for the second year in a row. Weak winds and faltering currents have left the Gulf of the Farallones without krill, on which Cassin’s auklets and a variety of other seabirds, fish and mammals depend for food. “The seas are warmer. And the number of krill being produced is lower,” said Bradley as he held a Cassin’s auklet chick, the only one from a study of 400 nests he expected to survive. “Normally we would have hundreds,” he said. The failure of last year’s Pacific upwelling killed seabirds from California to British Columbia. Scientists had hoped the change was just a natural temperature fluctuation in what is known as the California Current. But the return of higher ocean temperatures and scarce food resources this year has scientists wondering whether last year’s erratic weather was less a fluke than the emergence of a troubling trend. “How many years in a row do you see this before you start raising your eyebrows?” said Frank Schwing, an oceanographer with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in Pacific Grove, Calif. Climatologists describe global warming as a worldwide rise in temperatures caused by the buildup of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gasses thought to trap heat in the atmosphere. Predictions of global warming’s effects include rising sea levels, fiercer storms, more wildfires and warmer oceans. Without long-term data scientists have so far found it difficult to make direct links between specific natural events and global warming. But the Farallones present a special case. Researchers have kept Cassin’s auklet counts there every day since 1967. Never before have they seen such a drop-off in numbers. That decline comes as California ocean temperatures hover 3 to 5 degrees above average.

Lee flick kicks into gear By The Associated Press

HONG KONG Bruce Lee’s family plans to produce a film on the late martial arts star, the first such movie it has actively supervised, the Chinese company making the motion picture said Sunday. The film, which will be made by the Lee family and the Beijing Jian Yongjia film company, will be based on an upcoming biography of the late actor by Lee’s brother, Lee Chun-fai, Beijing Jian Yongjia said in a statement. “Bruce Lee died young, but stories about him haven’t stopped surfacing for 30 years. A lot of them were rumors fed by rumors and exaggerated. Bruce Lee’s family didn’t make its opinions known because they understood people’s passion about Bruce Lee,” the statement said. “As the members of the Lee family enter old age, to let people know the true story about Bruce Lee, Lee Chun-fai assumed responsibility and carefully organized materials kept by the family, writing the biography ‘Bruce Lee,’ a real and little-known true story,” it said. The book will debut on Nov. 25, Bruce Lee’s birthday, and Beijing Jian Yongjia will produce a series of films, TV shows and documentaries based on it, including a movie titled “Bruce Lee,” it said. The Chinese news Web site Sina.com reported Sunday that Hong Kong comedian Stephen Chow of “Shaolin Soccer” fame is a likely lead actor and that the film is budgeted at $12.5 million, with filming possibly to start early next year. Hong Kong native Lee died in 1973 at age 32 from swelling of the brain. He is known for films in which he portrayed characters that defended the Chinese and working class from oppressors. The announcement of the film came on the 33rd anniversary of his death.

A sitcom for the ages John Lithgow and Jeffrey Tambor hope to blow holes in the theory that a couple of 60-something men don’t fit TV advertisers’ coveted 18-to-34 age

demographic. The veteran actors co-star as mismatched buddies in the new comedy “Twenty Good Years,” debuting Oct. 4 on NBC. “I know how it feels to suddenly think, ‘Wait a minute, I do only have a few good years left, and by God, I’m going to make good use of it,"’ Lithgow told the Television Critics Association’s summer meeting Friday. “I always think that the best comedy has a string of anxiety and panic and fear in it.” Lithgow, 60, has focused on Broadway since his hit NBC comedy “3rd Rock From the Sun” went off the air a few years ago. He spends downtime at his home in Montana. “Since I turned 50, I have learned to sail and ski and play golf and ride a horse. It’s been insane,” he said. “I’ve broken a collarbone. I have pulled an ACL. I’m such a familiar figure in the ER at the Kalispell Medical Center. They are almost keeping score.” Tambor, whose Fox comedy “Arrested Development” was canceled, stays young with his 19-month-old son and a grandson born four days later. “I can’t believe that I’m 62,” he said. “I certainly understand the follies of trying to be young. I try to run every day and my chiropractor says, `Don’t. You’re hurting yourself. This is not good for you.’ I think human beings are hysterical in trying to avoid the inevitable.” Lithgow feels fortunate to be working at an age considered old in Hollywood. “Jeffrey and I are very lucky actors,” he said. “We’ve lasted into our 60s as actors in demand. There are very, very few of us left who can do comedy and drama, who have the chops, who can remember our lines.”

PHILADELPHIA

Fresh Prince keeps the peace Will Smith returned to his hometown to participate in a march against violence. The actor and rapper said he wanted to do something about the violence in the city, which had 380 killings in 2005 and appears likely to top that number this year.

“We’re going to take this walk, hopefully draw a little attention to the problem and get some solutions,” Smith said Saturday as he walked with his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, in West Philadelphia, along with local officials and members of the community. The level of violence last week prompted the Philadelphia Daily News to call for the National Guard to patrol city streets. Gov. Ed Rendell gave Philadelphia a $7.5 million grant for 166,000 hours of police overtime to help deal with gun violence until state police free up 70 city officers by taking over highway patrols.

My Super Ex-Girlfriend

Singing a takeoff of Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues” helped a Texas commercial property developer win an Ernest Hemingway look-alike contest during a festival honoring the author that ended Sunday. Sporting a khaki hunting outfit, white beard and bushy eyebrows, Chris Storm, 55, hit Cash-like low notes as he sang a plea for contest judges’ votes during the highlight of the six-day Hemingway Days festival. The competition drew 130 other bearded entrants who paraded across the stage at Sloppy Joe’s Bar, the author’s favorite watering hole. A crowd cheered Saturday night as the judges, all past contest winners, pondered the 25 finalists’ resemblance to Hemingway. Storm, a five-time competitor, credited his victory to the enthusiasm of his 35-member cheering section and his undeniably Hemingway-esque appearance. “Hemingway was a very complex individual, but there are a lot of good parts about him I’d like to think I have,” said Storm, of Amarillo. “I’ve hunted and fished, I’ve been to Africa several times and I love to write.” Storm co-wrote the lyrics to his Cash takeoff, and he has written short stories and published articles about hunting. His favorite Hemingway works are “The Old Man and the Sea” and “The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber.”
