JAMS It was a bad year for incumbents at Sunday’s Santa Monicans for Renters’ Rights convention, with one sitting City Council member and two incumbent school board members failing to win endorsements from the influential political party. During a four-hour meeting at John Adams Middle School, party members couldn’t agree on a full slate for either the council or the school board, failing to endorse candidates for one open council seat and two open board of education slots. In an upset, City Council challenger Ted Winterer won an endorsement while fourterm incumbent Pam O’Connor, who failed to receive the required 55 percent super majority in either of the first two voting rounds, fell just short the second time SEE SMRR PAGE 11

Crews gain ground on L.A. wildfire

’Inception’ outclasses ‘Schmucks’ at box office

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

AP Entertainment Writer

LOS ANGELES “Inception” is still kicking at the box office. The mind-bending Warner Bros. thriller starring Leonardo DiCaprio remained the No. 1 movie for the third-straight weekend with $27.5 million, bringing its total to $193.3 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. “Inception” edged out the weekend’s new releases: “Dinner for Schmucks,” “Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore” and “Charlie St. Cloud.” “’Inception’ has seeped into the cultural zeitgeist,” said Paul Dergarabedian, boxoffice analyst for Hollywood.com. “It’s something that everyone is talking about right now. When a movie is able to do that and something just clicks, it becomes a national — even an international — discussion, and it’s seemingly impervious to any of the newcomers.” “Dinner for Schmucks,” the Paramount comedy starring Steve Carell and Paul Rudd, followed closely behind “Inception” with $23.3 million, while the Warner Bros. 3-D sequel “Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore” fetched $12.5 million in the No. 5 spot. “Charlie St. Cloud,” the Universal Pictures drama starring Zac Efron, debuted at No. 6 with $12.1 million. "For us to clearly be the runaway of the three new films this weekend and come as close as we did to ‘Inception,’ which is a wonderful movie, is pretty solid,” said Don Harris, Paramount’s vice president of distribution. “With a Zac Efron movie and a 3-D sequel to a popular movie, I think people expected it to be a horse race, but it really wasn’t.” “Salt” clung to No. 3 with $19.2 million in its second weekend, bringing its total to a solid $70.8 million. The Sony spy caper starring Angelina Jolie as a CIA operative who goes rogue suffered a 47 percent drop from its $36.5 million opening weekend. During the busy summer movie season, top hits often drop 50 percent or more in the second weekend. Overall revenues rose for the fifthSEE BOX OFFICE PAGE 10

peratures helped firefighters nearly contain a wildfire smoldering Sunday in the high desert north of Los Angeles. The fire charred nearly 22 square miles of brush in the Antelope Valley. It was 87 percent contained Sunday, and crews hoped to have it fully surrounded by Monday evening, Los Angeles County Inspector Don Kunitomi said. All roads were reopened at sunrise Sunday. The fire was believed to have been sparked Thursday afternoon in the Agua Dulce area by someone working on a car wheel. Four homes and five outbuildings were destroyed. Los Angeles County Fire crews aided by a pair of water-dropping helicopters quickly knocked down a smoky wildfire that burned Sunday along the north edge of the 101 Freeway in Calabasas. Officials said it charred about 12 acres of heavy brush after being reported around noon. No structures were threatened but traffic in both directions slowed down significantly because of heavy smoke visible from much of the San Fernando Valley. To the south in rural San Diego County, a wildfire sparked Saturday that has burned about 110 acres of heavy brush near Julian was nearly surrounded.

Court documents show the two were legally married May 25, 2009, and separated on their one-year anniversary. The media-hungry pair published a

book together last year: “How to Be Famous: Our Guide to Looking the Part, Playing the Press, and Becoming a Tabloid Fixture.” Montag filed for a legal separation on June 8, which some dismissed as a publicity stunt. In the divorce filing, she asked the court to deny spousal support to Pratt. The couple have no children.

You can’t legislate morality Editor:

I would personally like to thank the City Council for banning smoking [on patios]. I’m so glad, driving in my car, smoking my cigar, the only time I’m happy is when I listen to that song. I have a question for the People’s Republic aka “the council"... what are we allowed to smoke? My friends enjoy a big pipe of crack cocaine on the balcony, does that violate such excellent city planning? And later, my other friends come over and smoke opium ... is that among the banned? What about corn silk? We smoked it behind the barn, can we smoke it now? Oh, and what about pot? Secondhanders seem to enjoy it; I know my cat does. Tobacco is not going to go away, people are going to smoke. Didn’t you learn anything from history? You cannot legislate morality. When will you ever learn that? Can’t we take a lesson from Rodney King and Al Capone and stop making rules? Rules exist due to a lack of understanding. It’s not rocket science! The jerk who was quoted as saying “if you want to smoke take a walk.” That is classic. But second rate. “Let them eat cake” is better. I am intrigued by the way our fearless leaders have insinuated this wonderful method of tying the bell on the cat ... pit neighbor against neighbor in small claims court. That’s rich. But didn’t Santa Monica outsource that? Won’t we have to go to Bell, or some other equally hospitable municipality to get our day in court? I am beginning to wonder why we are paying so much for so little freedom. Thank the Constitution for reason, and especially term limits and voting jerks out of office. Or has the Constitution been thrown off the pier, too?

Will a half cent break the camel’s back? A FEW WEEKS AGO, THE CITY COUNCIL

approved placing a half cent sales tax increase on the November ballot. If approved, the “proposed “transaction and use tax” would increase the current 9.75 percent sales tax to 10.25 percent on all taxable items sold, delivered to or registered in Santa Monica. Local merchants are concerned about "diversion,” which is what happens when Santa Monicans shop out of town to avoid paying a higher tax and non-residents stay away, slow or stop their spending for the same reason. City Manager Rod “Half-cent” Gould disagreed with my comments about diversion in a letter to the editor (Letters to the editor, “For the record,” July 24-25, Pg. 4). Based on general information from someone on City Hall’s financial staff, my sources assumed the proposed increase would result in a 10 percent decline in Santa Monica’s taxable sales which last fiscal year was $2.680 billion. A 10 percent decline in taxable sales would amount to $268 million. Gould wrote that the city’s outside consultant (HDL Companies in Diamond Bar), “Studied 37 of the 79 cities that have enacted such a tax and found the increased tax has no impact on taxable sales of any business type” and “... no decrease of city sales tax revenue.” While I’ll admit that a 10 percent decline in taxable sales was perhaps overstated, Gould’s contention that there will be no decline in taxable sales is Pollyannaish and equally unrealistic. Gould’s letter also ignored the majority of cities (42 out of 79) where there was an impact. Neither HDL or Gould has talked to the residents I’ve conversed with over the last week or two who unanimously condemned the proposal as excessive and unneeded. All 60 to 75 people I talked with said, “If they raise the sales tax, I’ll go somewhere else.” This newspaper has printed numerous, exclusively negative letters from readers since the tax was announced. In the July 1718, Q-line, (Pg 5), 15 of 16 respondents said they wouldn’t vote for this tax and many of them also vowed not to shop here if it passed. At a Sunset Park block party I attended July 24, Councilman Bob Holbrook was surprised to hear residents say they’d leave town to shop. “You’d drive out of town to save a few cents,” he asked? Maybe not for one small item, they replied, but if shopping for a number of items at one time, they certainly would. Costco in Venice seems to be a favorite. It and similar non-local outlets will surely benefit at the expense of Santa Monica retailers, especially those selling higher

ticket items. For every dollar spent out of town, the city will not only lose the half cent increase but also the one cent on each taxable sales dollar it now receives from the current 9.75 percent tax.

FARMERS’ MARKET CHANGES COMING — BETTER OR WORSE?

CHIEF PHOTOGRAPHER

Never content to let well enough alone, City Hall is “tweaking” its various Farmers’ Markets. At the Pico Farmers Market, many quality “prepared foods” purveyors have been doing business for as long as 15 years. The Old Town Baking Company, Bertha’s Tamales, Candy’s Gourmet Sausage, Laurent Croissants, Expresso Experience, Cafe Laurent, Lox of Bagels and others may be gone in two months. It seems that some local merchants, primarily on Main Street, want to get in on the lucrative market action by selling prepared foods such as light meals, sandwiches and beverages there. According to market supervisor Laura Avery, “Limited non-farmer space has been filled for years. Main Street’s market has 13 prepared food stalls, Pico has seven and the Downtown markets have one or two each." Nevertheless, the Farmers’ Market staff in Andy Agle’s Housing and Economic Development Department “was advised by City Attorney, Marsha Moutrie to establish an open application process so that everyone should have a chance to be considered,” Avery disclosed. “Our standard advice for allocating commercial opportunities afforded by the city is an open, fair and competitive process with the decisions made pursuant to standards approved by council. In general, this is the system for awarding city contracts, and it is the general recommendation we made as to the markets,” Moutrie e-mailed. The three year development process was approved by City Council in May. A panel of seven people — mostly City Hall staff — will decide in the next six weeks who goes, who stays and who comes in new. Experience in open air markets, quality of ingredients, sustainability and maintaining a variety of purveyors are prime considerations. Being a Santa Monica business is a plus. Vendors will be finalized in September and debut their wares around Oct. 1. Many of us shop these markets for the prepared foods including breads and specialty items as well as the fresh produce. While change isn’t necessarily bad, let’s hope this “adjustment” doesn’t disappoint and therefore give loyal market customers a reason to shop at Farmers’ Markets out of town.

Gulf spill crews prepare permanent plug for pipe GREG BLUESTEIN Associated Press Writer

NEW ORLEANS The only thing keeping millions more gallons of oil out of the Gulf of Mexico right now is a rush job: an experimental cap that has held for more than two weeks but was never meant to be permanent. As soon as this week, crews will be pumping in some insurance. Engineers are preparing to launch a socalled static kill as early as Monday evening, shoving mud and perhaps cement into the blown-out well to make it easier to plug the gusher up forever and end the Summer of the Spill. The effort carries no certainty, and BP PLC engineers still plan to follow it up days later by sending a stream of mud and cement into the bottom of the mile-deep underground reservoir through a relief well they’ve been digging for months. But the oil giant’s engineers and petroleum experts say it’s the clearest path yet to choke the blown-out well and make it even easier for the crews drilling the relief well to ensure oil can never again erupt from the deep-sea well, which has spewed as much as 184 million gallons since the rig connected to it blew up in April and killed 11 workers. The developments have the makings for an interesting week. “It could be the beginning of the end,” said Darryl Bourgoyne, director of Petroleum Engineering Research Lab at Louisiana State University. When it begins, crews will slowly pump heavy mud through lines installed last month straight down the throat of the leaky well. If the mud forces the oil back into the massive underground reservoir and scientists are confident the pressure remains stable, then engineers can pump in fresh cement to seal it. “The only thing that separates the oil from the sea now is the valve. This puts thousands of feet of mud and cement in between,” said Eric Smith, associate director of the Tulane Energy Institute. “The idea is to have as many barriers as possible between the ocean and the reservoir. We’re adding an extra level of safety.” Officials may then begin the process of choking the underground reservoir feeding the well by pumping mud and then cement down an 18,000-foot relief well. BP officials have long said the process is the only sure way to choke the well for good — plugging up the source of the oil, not just its route to the sea. No oil has leaked from the busted well since engineers were able to fix a tightly fitting cap over its outlet two weeks ago, and

boats skimming the oil and spraying subsea dispersant have been able to contain some of the spill. But critics have raised questions about the long-term effects of the dispersant on sea life, and congressional investigators said Saturday that the Coast Guard routinely approved BP requests to use thousands of gallons of chemicals a day despite a federal directive to cut its use. Retired Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen said Sunday that federal regulators did not ignore environmental guidelines, but that some field commanders were given the authority to allow more dispersants to be used on a case-by-case basis. BP’s engineers, meanwhile, focus their time on their latest bid to stymie the oil for good. If the static kill attempt sounds familiar, that’s because it is. The company tried a similar process, called a top kill, to choke the well with mud in May. It failed partly because the mud couldn’t overcome the flow of the oil. There’s reason to hope this time will be different. For one, the oil is no longer freely flowing from the well, thanks to the temporary cap that has contained the out-of-control gusher for two weeks. That means that engineers won’t have to pump in mud with as much force, said Kent Wells, a BP senior vice president. There’s always the risk that the pressure exerted by the mud will rupture the casing holding in the oil and potentially cause an even greater mess, but experts say it’s very unlikely. “I can’t imagine it failing. It’s holding pressure and there’s no indication of any loss of fluid from the well,” Smith said. “It’s a vanishingly small risk of failure.” The whole procedure is still set to be completed by late August despite a brief evacuation for Tropical Storm Bonnie last week. And federal officials are downplaying its importance in case of a failure. Allen, the government’s point man on the recovery effort, said Sunday that “static kill is not the end all, be all.” BP has had more than its share of failures experimenting with other ambitious efforts. So if the oil is already contained and the completion of the relief well appears to be just around the corner, why is the oil giant even bothering to attempt the complicated static kill? One answer is that it should make it easier to finish the relief well, which BP and government officials have long said is the only permanent solution to the blown-out well. Crews are also drilling a second, backup relief well a few thousand feet behind the primary one, which is about 100 feet from its target.

we strengthen the bond between local farmers and our communities, stay connected to the seasons in our part of the world, promote crop diversity, and minimize the energy intensive, greenhouse-gas-emitting transportation of food from one part of the world to another. Also, since local crops are usually harvested at their peak of freshness and typically delivered to stores within a day, customers can be sure they are getting the tastiest and most nutritious forms of the foods they like. Luckily for consumers and the environment, local produce and other foods are now more widely available than they have been for decades. The first national grocery chain to prioritize local producers, perhaps not surprisingly, was natural foods retailer Whole Foods, which was buying from local farmers and ranchers since it opened its first store in 1980 in Austin, Texas. Today each of the company’s 270-plus stores in 38 U.S. states prioritizes local sourcing — so much so that its customers take it for granted. Whole Foods’ relationships and distribution arrangements with local producers serve as models for the leading national grocery chains, many of which are beginning to source some produce locally when the season is right. Some are taking more initiative than others. Perhaps most notable is Walmart. Back in 2008 the company committed to sourcing more local fruits and vegetables to keep produce prices down and provide affordable, fresh and healthy choices. Today more than 2,800 Walmart Supercenters and Neighborhood Markets across the country

rely on a diverse network of small local growers to provide produce — making Sam Walton’s company the nation’s largest purchaser of local produce. During summer months, at least one-fifth of the produce available in Walmart stores is grown within the same state as the given store. The company’s Heritage Agriculture program encourages farms within a day’s drive of one of its warehouses to grow crops that the company would otherwise have to source from so far away that freshness would be jeopardized and the fuel burned and greenhouse gases emitted in the process would be substantial. While the Heritage program currently accounts for only four to six percent of the company’s total domestic produce sales, the company is aiming for 20 percent within the next few years. Other big grocery chains aren’t far behind. Safeway, one of the top three grocery chains in the country, prides themselves on local sourcing, getting nearly a third of its produce nationwide from local/regional growers. In heavy agricultural regions like California, the figure can be as high as 45 percent. The company has also made a big push into organic products, just like its biggest competitor, Walmart. If the chain grocer near you doesn’t do a good job stocking locally sourced food, there are alternatives. Community Supported Agriculture programs, in which consumers “subscribe” to the produce of a given farm by paying monthly dues that entitles them to a box of fresh produce every week, are more popular than ever, as are local farmers’ markets, food co-ops and independent natural foods markets. To find local food near you, visit the Local Harvest, which lists organic food sources by zip code and offers a wealth of resources for those looking to learn more about where their food comes from and how it is produced.

Coast Guard routinely permits use of dispersants H. JOSEF HEBERT Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON The U.S. Coast Guard has routinely approved BP requests to use thousands of gallons of toxic chemical a day to break up oil slicks in the Gulf of Mexico despite a federal directive that the chemicals be used only rarely on surface waters, congressional investigators said Saturday after examining BP and government documents. The documents show the Coast Guard approved 74 waivers over a 48-day period after the restrictions were imposed, resulting in hundreds of thousands of gallons of the chemicals to be spread on Gulf waters. Only in a small number of cases did the government scale back BP’s request. The extensive use of dispersants to break up oil gushing from BP’s Deepwater Horizon raised concerns early on as to what long-term damage the toxic chemicals might be doing to the Gulf ’s aquatic life. That prompted the Environmental Protection Agency on May 26 to direct BP to stop using the chemicals on the water surface except in “rare cases.” But Rep. Edward Markey, D-Mass., said Saturday that the chemicals continued to be used extensively with Coast Guard approval, often at a rate of 6,000 to 10,000 gallons a day. A request was made and approved on June 13 to spread as much as 36,000 gallons of dispersant, according to data obtained by Markey’s Energy and Environment subcommittee. The EPA directive “has become more of a meaningless paperwork exercise than an attempt ... to eliminate surface application of chemical dispersants,” Markey wrote in a letter sent Friday to retired Coast Guard Adm.

Thad Allen, the government’s point man on the spill. Markey’s office released the letter Saturday as well as the documents his panel had analyzed. Markey said that instead of complying with the EPA directive, “BP often carpet bombed the ocean with these chemicals and the Coast Guard allowed them to do it.” The House investigators found that the Coast Guard routinely approved the chemical use, in some cases a week in advance. On five occasions the Coast Guard approved a BP request to use 6,000 gallons a day over a weeklong period and “in many of these days BP still used more than double” the limit that was approved, Markey said in his letter. A call to the BP press office in Houston was not immediately returned. A spokesman on duty for the Unified Command Center in New Orleans did not have an immediate comment. The chemicals break down masses of oil into small droplets that allow the oil to be more easily consumed by bacteria. But the chemicals also are toxic and it’s not known what impact the large volume of chemicals being used against the BP spill might be having on marine life. The EPA has acknowledged that there are tradeoffs and that some use of the chemicals are essential to combat the oil spill. The EPA directive issued in May concerned only surface dispersal of the chemicals. BP also has been using large amounts of chemicals near the ocean floor at the site of the damaged wellhead. In recent weeks, little oil has been noticed on the Gulf surface, and scientists believe one reason for that might be the extensive use of the chemical dispersants.

Wyoming-to-Oregon gas pipeline the subject of suit MEAD GRUVER Associated Press Writer

CHEYENNE, Wyo. An environmental group that wants to block construction of a $3 billion gas pipeline from Wyoming to Oregon filed a lawsuit Friday, saying the pipeline will cut across pristine land and harm endangered fish. The Tucson, Ariz.-based Center for Biological Diversity sued the U.S. Bureau of Land Management and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in federal court in San Francisco. The Ruby Pipeline will cross more than 1,000 rivers and streams, harming species such as the Lahontan cutthroat trout, Warner Creek sucker, Lost River sucker and Colorado pikeminnow, said Noah Greenwald, endangered species coordinator for the group. “More broadly, we don’t understand why they had to choose to put a new pipeline through some of the most pristine lands in the West,” he said. “Why couldn’t they use an existing pipeline route?” If construction begins, Greenwald said,

the Center for Biological Diversity intends to seek an injunction to halt work until the group’s concerns are addressed. Work appears set to begin soon. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission issued a notice to proceed Friday, said Mark Mackiewicz, manager of the project for the BLM. “I imagine by Monday you’ll have hundreds of people out there starting to work on this,” Mackiewicz said. He said the BLM and Ruby Pipeline LLC, a subsidiary of El Paso Corp., worked hard to address environmental concerns. El Paso spokesman Richard Wheatley declined to comment. Two other environmental groups, the Western Watersheds Project and Oregon Natural Desert Foundation, recently dropped opposition to the pipeline after El Paso agreed to spend $20 million to help protect sagebrush habitat. The Ruby Pipeline will begin at Opal in western Wyoming and cross northern Utah and Nevada before ending at Malin, Ore., near the California state line. Work on the project would begin at seven locations along the pipeline route.

CORNING, N.Y. An ultra-strong glass that has been looking for a purpose since its invention in 1962 is poised to become a multibillion-dollar bonanza for Corning Inc. The 159-year-old glass pioneer is ramping up production of what it calls Gorilla glass, expecting it to be the hot new face of touch-screen tablets and high-end TVs. Gorilla showed early promise in the ‘60s, but failed to find a commercial use, so it’s been biding its time in a hilltop research lab for almost a half-century. It picked up its first customer in 2008 and has quickly become a $170 million a year business as a protective layer over the screens of 40 million-plus cell phones and other mobile devices. Now, the latest trend in TVs could catapult it to a billion-dollar business: Frameless flat-screens that could be mistaken for chic glass artwork on a living-room wall. Because Gorilla is very hard to break, dent or scratch, Corning is betting it will be the glass of choice as TV-set manufacturers dispense with protective rims or bezels for their sets, in search of an elegant look. Gorilla is two to three times stronger than chemically strengthened versions of ordinary soda-lime glass, even when just half as thick, company scientists say. Its strength also means Gorilla can be thinner than a dime, saving on weight and shipping costs. Corning is in talks with Asian manufacturers to bring Gorilla to the TV market in early 2011 and expects to land its first deal this fall. With production going full-tilt in Harrodsburg, Ky., it is converting part of a second factory in Shizuoka, Japan, to fill a potential burst of orders by year-end. “That’ll tell you something about our confidence in this,” said Corning President Peter Volanakis. Investors are taking notice. In June, Sanford C. Bernstein & Co. in New York raised Corning’s projected share price, predicting Gorilla would be its second biggest business by 2015. “There’s a wide range of views on how successful this product will be,” said Deutsche Bank analyst Carter Shoop. “But I think it’s safe to say that, in aggregate, people are becoming much more bullish. It’s a tremendous opportunity. We’ll have to see how consumers react.” DisplaySearch market analyst Paul Gagnon said alternatives “obviously scratch easier, they’re thicker and heavier, but they’re also cheaper.” He estimates that a sheet of Gorilla would add $30 to $60 to the cost of a set. It remains to be seen “whether this becomes a hit trend that propagates to other models and sizes or remains in the confines of a premium step-up series of products,” Gagnon said. “This is a fashion trend, not a functional trend, and that’s what makes (the growth rate) very hard to predict,” said Volanakis. “But because the market is so large in terms of number of TVs — and the amount of glass per TV is so large — that’s what can move the needle pretty quickly.” Based in western New York, Corning is the world’s largest maker of glass for liquidcrystal-display computers and TVs. Highmargin LCD glass generated the bulk of Corning’s $5.4 billion in 2009 sales.

By ramping up volume production quickly in a budding market, Corning is pursuing a well-worn strategy designed to keep rivals from gaining ground. Its patience is also well practiced. Executives know too well the gulf between inspiration and application is sometimes decades-wide. Corning set out in the late 1950s to find a glass as strong as steel. Dubbed Project Muscle, the effort combined heating and layering experiments and produced a robust yet bendable material called Chemcor. Then in 1964, Corning devised an ingenious method called “fusion draw” to make superthin, unvaryingly flat glass. It pumped hot glass into a suspended trough and allowed it to overflow and run down either side. The glass flows then meet under the trough and fuse seamlessly into a smooth, hanging sheet of glass. To make Chemcor, Corning ran the sheets through a “tempering” process that set up internal stresses in the material. The same principle is behind the toughness of Pyrex glass, but Chemcor was tempered in a chemical bath, not by heat treatment. Corning thought Chemcor sheets created this way would be the material of choice in car windshields, but British rival Pilkington Bros. intervened with a far cheaper massproduction approach. And another Chemcor adaptation in photochromic sunglasses also fizzled in the retail market. Fusion draw finally proved its commercial value when Japanese electronics companies, looking for slim sheets free of alkalis that contaminate liquid crystals, turned to Corning’s soda-lime LCD glass in the 1980s. Corning rapidly turned into the world’s biggest supplier of LCD glass for laptops and that business blossomed around 2003 when LCD technology migrated to TVs. In 2006, when demand surfaced for a cell phone cover glass, Corning dug out Chemcor from its database, tweaked it for manufacturing in LCD tanks, and renamed it Gorilla. “Initially, we were telling ourselves a $10 million business,” said researcher Ron Stewart. With relatively low startup costs, Gorilla should generate its first profit this year. And now that production is back on, designers are again exploring using it in unexpected places, like refrigerator doors, car sunroofs and touch-screen hotel advertising. Among the 100-plus devices with Gorilla are Motorola Inc.’s Droid smart phone and LG Electronics’ X300 notebook. Whether Apple Inc. uses the glass in its iPod is a much-discussed mystery since “not all our customers allow us to say,” said Jim Steiner, general manager of Corning’s specialty materials division. Since the Civil War, Corning has turned out a glittering array of innovations from railroad signals to Pyrex and auto-pollution filters to optical fiber. Allotting 10 percent of revenue to research keeps promising projects brewing at its Sullivan Park research hub on Corning’s hilly outskirts. Optical fiber is another example of an invention that took a long time to come into its own. In 1934, chemist Frank Hyde came up with a practical method of making fused silica — an exceptionally pure glass — in bulk, yet it wasn’t put to use as optical fiber until the 1970s. Once there, it helped create the Internet revolution. In his office lobby, Steiner showed off a 400-foot-long spool of flexible, 16-inchwide glass that’s as thin as a sheet of paper

After nearly four centuries, family farm is up for sale KATHY MCCORMACK Associated Press Writer

DOVER, N.H. In 1632, John Tuttle arrived from England to a settlement near the Maine-New Hampshire border, using a small land grant from King Charles I to start a farm. Eleven generations and 378 years later, his field-weary descendants — arthritic from picking fruits and vegetables and battered by competition from supermarkets and pick-ityourself farms — are selling their spread, which is among the oldest continuously operated family farms in America. “We’ve been here for 40 years, doing what we love to do,” said Lucy Tuttle, 65, who runs the 134-acre farm with brother Will. “But we’re not able to work to our full capacity any longer, unfortunately.” Tuttle added that she and her brother and their sister have done their best “to lovingly discourage” their children from becoming generation No. 12. “We would be saddling them with a considerable amount of debt,” she said. According to eyewitness accounts, John Tuttle was shipwrecked off the Maine coast before arriving at his land grant, which boasted a mature stand of white pine trees. He cut them down and farmed around the stumps, starting what would become 250 years’ worth of subsistence farming by Tuttles. Throughout, change has been a constant on the farm, which grows sweet corn, cucumbers, squash, tomatoes, and blueberries, raspberries and strawberries. Lucy Tuttle’s grandfather, William Penn Tuttle, built the original 20-acre parcel to about 200 acres, growing more produce than the family needed and selling it in nearby towns — first on a horse and buggy. Her father, Hugh Tuttle, who was profiled in 1971 by Life magazine as the last of a dying breed, developed irrigation ponds on the farm and was well-known in New Hampshire for his interest in soil and water conservation work before his death in 2002. Lucy and Will Tuttle, who grew up in a 1780 farmhouse built by family members, didn’t spend their whole lives on the farm. She lived in Paris for seven years, teaching English. He went to work for an auto dealer in Boston, then worked at Campbell Soup Co. as a sales representative. She remembers her father contemplating selling the farm. “I think he felt discouraged,” Lucy Tuttle said. “All of a sudden, the three of us came flocking back with our energy.” When they took over, Tuttle and her brother made changes, turning the farm into a year-round business instead of a seasonal one. They built a a new farm stand to replace the family’s old red barn — now used for storage — and diversified the product offerings to include gourmet cheeses, baked goods, plants and other products. “They changed their business model with the times in order to stay profitable and stay in business,” said Lorraine Merrill, New Hampshire’s agriculture commissioner. “It’s much more than a farm stand.”

But the growth of supermarket chains, the emergence of the local food movement — New Hampshire has more than 80 farmers markets — and the grueling routine took a toll. “Eleven generations is unique,” said Chuck Hassebrook, executive director of the Center for Rural Affairs in Lyons, Neb., a nonprofit policy analysis and advocacy group. “What’s not so unique is that farms being operated as family farms for generations are being sold, or at least the family no longer is operating the farm.” Competition from large farms has become much more intense, whether in the Midwest — where it tends to be for land — or in New England, where it’s likely to be for markets. “That’s put a lot of pressure on family-size operations,” he said. Too, the local food movement has had an impact, with consumers growing their own vegetables. ‘People are getting more interested in canning, they’re getting more interested in freezing food,” said Juli Brussell, agricultural resources program leader for the University of New Hampshire’s cooperative extension. For years, the Tuttle farm has been referred to as the nation’s oldest continually operating family farm, but it’s unclear whether that’s true. News articles dating to the 1930s confirm its age, and the Tuttles said they’ve never been challenged over the distinction. In 1989, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said the nation’s oldest farm was the Tuttle Farm, but it made no mention of the Shirley Plantation in Charles City, Va., which was founded in 1613 and was in business in 1638. The Shirley Plantation calls itself the oldest family-owned business in North America, also for eleven generations. Julian Charity, visitor services supervisor there, said there have been questions about whether the plantation or the Tuttle farm is older, but the plantation never challenged the Tuttle Farm over the designation. “A couple of words can change the complete definition of a title,” he said. On Tuesday, the Tuttle Farm went on the market. Asking price: $3.35 million. Under a deed restriction that came with its 2006 designation as conservation land, it can’t be developed into strip malls or condos. “The farm is operating until we find a buyer who loves this land almost as much as we do,” said Will Tuttle, 63. Longtime customer Linda Struble, 63, of Dover, loves the farm’s corn and cried when she heard the Tuttles were selling. She’d like to see it stay as it is. “I can’t imagine anything else with it. It would be even more heartbreaking than it is now,” she said. But Lucy Tuttle says that if her ancestors could see her now, they’d be amazed. Her sister, Becky, jokes that if John Tuttle were around today, he’d say, “What’s the matter with you? Have you got no ambition? Pick up and go. I did."

Space station cooling system shuts down MARCIA DUNN AP Aerospace Writer

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. Half of the International Space Station’s cooling system suddenly shut down during the weekend, forcing the astronauts to power down equipment and face the likelihood of urgent spacewalking repairs. After huddling Sunday, NASA managers gave preliminary approval for a pair of spacewalks, the first of which would take place later this week. Two of the Americans on board were already scheduled to conduct a spacewalk Thursday for routine maintenance, though the repairs would supersede the original chores. Officials stressed that the six occupants were in no danger, and that the orbiting complex was in a stable situation. The trouble arose Saturday night, when one of the two ammonia-fed cooling loops shut down. Alarms sounded throughout the sprawling outpost as the circuit breaker for the pump in that line tripped, causing the pump to stop working.

The cooling system is critical for on-board operations. The two ammonia lines ensure that all the station’s electronic equipment does not overheat and with one of those out of commission, there is no safeguard in case of a second failure. Astronaut Tracy Caldwell Dyson hustled through the equipment shutdown procedures and, with crewmate Douglas Wheelock, installed a jumper cable to keep all the rooms cool. Flight controllers tried to restart the disabled ammonia pump early Sunday, but the circuit breaker tripped again. No further repair attempts were planned, at least for now. In fact, the astronauts were allowed to sleep in because of all the late-night disruptions. Any repairs later this week will involve replacing that ammonia pump, a difficult job that would require two spacewalks. Two spare pumps are stored on the outside of the station. The first repair spacewalk likely would occur Thursday at the earliest, with the second excursion two or three days later. A final decision on whether to proceed with the task will be made following additional engineering review.

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO Parking Structure No. 2 Seismic Retrofit Starting on Thursday, Aug. 5, the sidewalk in front of Parking Structure No. 2 will be closed to pedestrian traffic. There will still be access to businesses located to the north and south of the parking structure, but pedestrians will be directed to use the sidewalk on the west side of the street to get between Wilshire Boulevard and Arizona Avenue. The parking structure will remain open throughout construction, however the work requires temporary closure of up to 50 parking spaces per day. Also, traffic leaving Parking Structure No. 2 will not be able to exit onto Second Street. Instead, all exiting traffic will be re-routed through the alley behind the structure. Please be sure to obey all posted directional and no parking signs throughout the construction project. Estimated project completion is December, 2010.

Santa Monica Boulevard Resurfacing Cold milling and paving is scheduled to take place on Santa Monica Boulevard from Lincoln to Cloverfield boulevards. Expect lane rolling closures of portions as well as temporary access restrictions to alleys connecting Santa Monica Boulevard. This work will take place both during the day and the evening.

SMRR FROM PAGE 1 around with 102 out of 199 votes cast, or 51.2 percent. The 234 registered SMRR members who cast ballots at the convention decided against holding a third voting round to decide O’Connor’s nomination. SMRR members voted to endorse Winterer and three-term incumbent Kevin McKeown for four-year seats on the City Council. Members also endorsed Gleam Davis and Terry O’Day for two open two-year council seats. After three voting rounds to decide endorsements for four open Santa MonicaMalibu Unified School District board of education seats, only Barry Snell, the board’s current president, and challenger Laurie Lieberman received enough votes to win endorsements. Incumbents Oscar de la Torre and Ralph Mechur, who were both endorsed by SMRR in previous election bids, were left out on Sunday, as was newcomer Nimish Patel.

“There wasn’t a spirit of wanting to support the SMRR platform,” SMRR co-chair Patricia Hoffman said after the convention. “I don’t remember a convention where as many people were here to oppose candidates.” After missing out on an endorsement, de la Torre, a two-term incumbent, said turnout at the convention appeared to be different from most years. “When they asked the question, ‘How many people here are renters?’ less than 50 percent of the people put their hands up,” he said. “I’ve never seen that happen in a SMRR convention.” He said he doesn’t believe the snub will hurt his chances in November’s election. “I’m still running. It just makes me want to work that much more,” he said. For candidates who sought a SMRR endorsement but fell short, there’s still a chance they could get a boost from the SMRR steering committee. The committee can’t hand out official SMRR endorsements but will still have the option of lending the party’s support and resources to some un-endorsed seekers.

When no candidate is endorsed for an available seat, the steering committee can decide to support a candidate for the opening with a two-thirds vote. There are 12 voting members on the SMRR steering committee, Hoffman said. While candidates who receive “support” from the SMRR steering committee are barred from saying they’ve been endorsed by SMRR, their names appear on the party’s campaign literature in the same way that the names of officially endorsed candidates do. Hoffman said the steering committee will meet within the next two weeks to decide whether to support additional candidates for the City Council or school board. “I think we have more to do. I don’t think we’re done,” she said. After the convention, O’Connor said she plans to continue to seek SMRR’s support. “The steering committee has the possibility of supporting me and I’m very hopeful they will support me,” she said. In other races, SMRR members easily endorsed those seeking the group’s support

11

with single voting rounds. The party’s members endorsed four candidates for the Rent Control Board: Todd Flora, Marilyn Korade-Wilson and William Winslow for four-year terms and Chris Braun for a two-year term. For the Santa Monica College Board of Trustees, members supported the four candidates seeking endorsements: incumbents Louise Jaffe, David Finkel, Nancy Greenstein and Andrew Walzer. SMRR members also overwhelmingly voted to support a November ballot measure that would strengthen eviction protections for tenants and threw the group’s support behind a half percent transaction and use tax that would raise an estimated $12 million per year for City Hall by increasing the sales tax on most purchases made in Santa Monica to 10.25 percent. Members also endorsed an advisory measure that will ask voters whether 50 percent of the money raised from the tax should be transferred to the public school district. nickt@smdp.com

SANTA MONICA

here for three weeks, but loved the diversity, talent and positive attitudes she found here so much, she decided to set up shop in Santa Monica. “There’s a mentality here that you can do whatever you set out to do,” she said. “There’s an unwritten law in Norway passed on through generations, called a janpe, that says you shouldn’t think you’re better than anyone else.” But she is still connected to her homeland, going back every summer to teach dance at summer school and to help choreograph the Eurovision Show songwriting contest for children. She and her Scandinavian friends often reminiscence about life there, comparing and contrasting their respective birth countries, said Marie Bergenholtz, VanderByl’s wife who is originally from Sweden. “Swedish people make jokes about the Norwegians and the other way around,” she said. “Sometimes I tell her ‘Yeah, yeah, you don’t know that because you’re Norwegian.’ And she says, ‘Yeah, yeah, you’re Swedish.’ But it’s in a loving way.” Outside of dance, Schoyen loves horseback riding and the outdoors, Bergenholtz said. Schoyen’s husband’s parents own a ranch, where she often goes riding. “She loves animals. She loves people,” Bergenholtz said. But dance will always remain her main passion, a passion which she takes very seriously, said Hans Mills, a friend. “I’ve heard stories about people that show up and think she’s going to teach their kids some silly little dance,” he said. “But she thinks that if you’re going to learn it, you have to learn it right. She’s not a pushover when it comes to dancing.” But taking dance seriously does not mean Schoyen is overly hard on her young students. On the contrary, one of the elements that make her a good dance teacher is her way of letting children have fun without the pressure of expecting them to become professionals, said Donna Heider, who’s now 20-year-old daughter began taking dance from Schoyen when she was 3. Schoyen teaches with the belief that everyone has the

ability to dance, no matter their skill level, fitness or age when they start, Heider said. Schoyen’s hard work and commitment to dance can come as a detriment, though, as she said she often finds herself overworking. “When I first opened my dance studio, I worked every day for eight months,” she recalled. “I finally took a vacation for five days, but right after, I got so sick I ended up in the hospital. The doctor said it was because I was overworked.” Her strong work ethic extended into her latest project, a video to spark a passion for activity and dance in children, “The Music Box — A Dance Along Fairytale.” In the five days she worked on it, she said she slept two hours each night and was more hands on “than a normal person should be.” After 12 years of owning the Santa Monica Dance Studio on Arizona Avenue, Schoyen downsized and relocated to Pico Boulevard and 26th Street to focus on creating the video. It showcases ballet, jazz, hip hop and other forms of dance through a fairy tale that young viewers are meant to dance along to. “The Music Box” will also be a vehicle for Schoyen’s charitability, with a portion of the proceeds being donated to Operation Smile, a nonprofit that helps treat children with cleft lips and cleft palates. Though many programs aimed at promoting youth activity exist, Mills, who created the graphics for the video, said he thinks Schoyen’s vision differs from others in her ability to truly connect with the target audience. “There’s so much crap out there for kids that keeps them staring at the TV,” he said. “Making something to get them active wasn’t a new concept, but this sounded smarter. Benedicte wasn’t talking down to the kids.” Schoyen’s ability to connect with her students extends beyond children. Schoyen has the ability to read people — young or old — to find out what they need, said Bergenholtz, who first met Schoyen by taking one of her ballet classes. “It’s not a problem if you have a personality like Benedicte that is a very open soul and a giving and nurturing personality,” Bergenholtz said. “You either have it or you don’t have it, and Benedicte definitely has it.” news@smdp.com

In spring 2011, an opportunity for travel or growth evolves. You also might have someone enter your life who is quite unique.

GETTING STARTED

SOLUTIONS TO YESTERDAY’S PUZZLE

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.

TM

• Fill the grid with the set of given numbers (1 to 12) to satisfy the Equa demands (7 to 24) in the shaded boxes. The Equa demands represent the sum of the digits that you will insert into the empty squares. • Each horizontal row has one Equa demand to satisfy; each vertical column also has one demand to satisfy. Each empty square in the grid dictates the math operation (addition +, subtraction -, multiplication X, and division ÷) that must be performed to meet the demands. • You must follow the given math operations for each square and you must make sure all the numbers satisfy the demands in the shaded boxes when connected in adjacent threes and calculated together from left to right, and top to bottom. • The numbers you insert into the grid must satisfy the Equa demands both horizontally and vertically.

SHEPARD

■ Among the promotions offered by New York City's upscale Marmara Manhattan hotel is a "birth tourism" package exploiting the U.S. Constitution's 14th Amendment. For about $35,000, a foreign expectant mother with a visa can spend her delivery week in luxury accommodations (including medical care) -- and assure her baby automatic U.S. citizenship. (That child could then become an "anchor," subsequently making it easier for the parents to acquire "green cards.") Also, The Washington Post reported in July that three agencies in China, with U.S. affiliates, offer similar packages to their affluent citizens, whose primary concern seems to be providing their children access to a U.S. education as an alternative to China's expensive, competitive system. (Historians agree that the purpose of the "citizenship right" in the 14th Amendment, ratified in 1868, was to recognize former slaves as citizens.) ■ (1) A naked, 47-year-old man was taken to an El Paso, Texas, burn center in July after "friends" won a bet and got to set his prosthetic leg on fire, and it spread to his body. The man admitted to police that he had lost fair-andsquare, by downing "only" six beers. He was treated for several days and released. (2) In June, two 34-year-old men in Horsham, Australia, underwent surgery as a result of a plan hatched during a drinking bout. They had both wondered if it hurt to get shot and thus obliged each other.

Fall of the Ottoman Empire: Unsuccessful uprising led by the Internal Macedonian-Adrianople Revolutionary Organization against Ottoman Turkey, also known as the IlindenPreobrazhenie Uprising.
