DOWNTOWN — For city residents, tourists and transients alike, securing a clean restroom in the downtown area has long been one of the more agonizing of urban experiences. Although City Hall has continued to work on a group of complex downtown development plans — including a $73.9 million library renovation, a $250 million plan to replace parking structures and add nearly 2,000 downtown parking spaces, and a plan to renovate the Santa Monica Place Mall — the restroom struggle doesn’t appear to be getting any easier. In the past few years, a number of downtown retailers have increased limitations on bathroom usage. The ranks of aggravated shopkeepers include two major corporate chain branches that, contrary to their national policies, decided to shut down their restroom facilities to the public rather than cope with the constant abuse that amounted to both a health concern and a safety hazard.

NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY CHUCK SHEPARD

■ A Police Officer's Dream Question: Vincent Morrissey's police brutality lawsuit went to trial in New Haven, Conn., in 1997, and the alleged perp, West Haven police officer Ralph Angelo, was on the witness stand, claiming that Morrissey himself had provoked the encounter by swinging at Angelo. Morrissey's attorney, openly skeptical of Angelo's version of the incident, asked Angelo to demonstrate to the jury just how hard Morrissey had swung at him. Before the lawyer could clarify what he meant by "demonstrate," Officer Angelo popped the lawyer on the chin, staggering him and forcing an immediate recess. ■ Obituaries from the Tyler (Texas) Morning Telegraph during the first week in August 1998: Aug. 2, Mr. Charles E.

Ebba Rosenblad

In a city of Botox needles and skin stretches, one woman has found a way to stay young gracefully and naturally. Even after 72 years, Ebba Rosenblad is still able to do things most 20-year-olds couldn’t fathom. Born in 1931 and raised in Stockholm, Sweden, Ebba has always rebelled against norms. Challenging her parents to become a dancer and then rekindling

her performing spirit after she had pushed it aside for a family life, Ebba remains her own woman. Her refusal to assume the life of a cookie-cutter girl — and later on, woman — gave her the opportunity to rub elbows with Hollywood’s elite and build a memory bank of priceless encounters and events. Although most people see growing older as the end of a cycle, Ebba’s dedication to her health, gymnastics and perSee PROFILES, page 8

SURF REPORT

Going from Diego dog beaches to Kerry rally EASY WRITER NOTES FROM THE ROAD

(Editor’s note: Santa Monica resident Lance Schmidt is on a road trip across America, on his way to Grandma’s house. He will be writing weekly on the people he meets, their political leanings and the environments in which they live). Aug. 13, 2004, Difficult Campground, White River National Forest, Aspen, Colo. Wed. Aug. 4 After some preparation, technical snafus and equipment checks, I left Santa Monica headed south toward San Diego to visit with the family, see a few friends who were going on their own trips and see how the dog beach was doing. San Diego has always been in the shadow of LA and has this inferiority complex that seems like it will never overcome. Just when “America’s finest city” appears to be on the verge of going big time, it, and its goofy City Council, seem to be

always shooting themselves in the foot. The Diego Misfits spin their wheels in litigation and never accomplish anything. But instead of spinning their wheels on items like hedge heights and de-clawed cats, they spin their wheels on actual matters of importance. Before leaving Diego, I visited a few friends who are pilots in the Marine reserves ready to leave on their own “holiday.” This is both their second tour of duty in Iraq and, as one could expect from a Marine, they were totally committed to accomplishing their mission. They both put good careers on hold to serve their country. And they love to fly. They were split, however, on whether they thought invading Iraq was the right thing to do, yet they both agreed that Saddam didn’t have a very good air force. I said good-bye to another Marine, my father, Col. Schmidt. Having served in three separate wars and seeing his share of battles, he is now waging another battle — Alzheimer’s. While he no longer recognizes me, he feels my presence as I do his. Semper Fi, Dad.

Today the water Is:

Monday will start off on the slow side as we come off a -.4 low tide at 4:30 a.m. and small NW wind swell mixes with slowly building S swell. Northern LA County will start off mainly waist high and below, but by later in the afternoon the surf will build into the waist-chest high range, with a few bigger sets at best breaks by sundown. Look for the surf to build further on Tuesday and into Wednesday. South Bay breaks will pick up primarily just NW wind swell with 1-3’ surf on Monday, slightly larger Tuesday and Wednesday. Look for mostly light wind on Monday morning with building W winds in the 8-12 knot range through the afternoon.

There recently have been several opinion pieces printed in the Daily Press from residents complaining about the increase in jets taking off and landing at Santa Monica Airport. They are concerned about jet fuel emissions, environmental damage, noise and the increased likelihood of a plane crashing into nearby homes. The letters to the editor were fueled by a guest commentary printed in the Aug. 11 edition by a Santa Monica resident who is heading up a group called “Concerned Residents Against Airport Pollution” that plans to make its con-

Business owners frustrated over lack of facilities

PUBLIC DUMP IN SANTA MONICA

“We’ve had all kinds of problems (with the homeless population),” he said. “They’ll just be walking by and disturb customers eating outside, asking for money, or just take food off people’s plates. Now we just say, ‘No, no, get out’ before they even get close, and we look bad.”

KEEPING CITY TOILETS CLEAN Miriam Mack, the city’s manager of economic development, said the city has been searching for space for additional public restrooms in the downtown area, but that other issues, such as downtown parking, have remained higher on the city’s “to do” list. Four of the six city-owned bathroom facilities off the Promenade were nearly closed in 2002 because they were seen as public health and safety hazards. The bathrooms, which are on the bottom floors of six of the city’s 1960s-era parking structures, are graffitied and often covered in wet toilet paper and litter. “I know our city crews have a very tight schedule of maintaining the public structures that are off the alleys,” Mack said. “They work very hard and diligently to have a regular cleaning schedule, but I think unfortunately those restrooms are located in such a manner that they do not give people the perception of accessibility and safety.” Three of the six parking garages containing restrooms will be demolished and rebuilt in the next few years as a part of the city’s downtown parking plan, Mack said. The city would look into adding more facilities in the garages, she said, and is currently putting together cost estimates for adding more bathrooms in one of the soon-to-be-demolished parking structures as a short-term solution to the problem. The city looked into leasing properties on Santa Monica Boulevard to address restroom problems in the downtown area two years ago but chose not to pursue the properties. It also operates three public facilities in Palisades Park near the Promenade.

‘A BATHROOM DOMINO EFFECT’ The caliber, quantity and accessibility of downtown bathrooms have received such low marks recently that the board of the Bayside District Corporation spent nearly 45 minutes at a recent meeting arguing over what could be done to keep bathrooms in the downtown area clean and accessible. Some officials at Bayside, which partners the city with private downtown business owners, reasoned that large businesses should be required to have open restrooms, while others argued that businesses should be able to make their decision from a business standpoint. “The bathrooms that remain (after some are shut down) become truly overburdened, and they have to carry the weight for the whole Promenade, which means they get overused,” said Rob Rader, a

Bayside board member who argued that the city should build more bathrooms downtown. “Then the city or the retailers want to shut them down, and then there are even fewer bathrooms. It’s like a bathroom domino effect. Then the bathrooms remaining are under pressure to close.” A number of other cities experiencing bathroom shortages and abuse — including Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle — have put in public pay toilets to try to keep restrooms from being magnets for homeless people, drug users and prostitutes. The toilets, based on European models, are in permanent metal shelters and have automatic cleaning mechanisms. They also have timers that open the doors after a predetermined period. However, problems have persisted in those communities. Other cities with sizable homeless populations, such as Santa Barbara and Santa Cruz, have not developed systems any more complicated than Santa Monica’s. Both cities have seen clean bathrooms become increasingly scarce in their most frequented areas.

LOOKING TO THE FUTURE Although Bayside board members and City Council members were firm in stating that something needs to be done to address the situation, they could not agree on what. Rader suggested the city buy property to install more bathrooms downtown and get enough cash together to hire 24-hour bathroom attendants. City Councilman Herb Katz, who was a Bayside board member a few years ago, agreed. “The city should buy a piece of property or rent a piece of property and build a proper restroom facility on the Promenade so the public can use it,” he said. “Do it right. The city’s supposedly been looking for some facility like that, but nothing’s come of it. I think they should have done something about it a long time ago. “When I was on Bayside, the city kept stalling it,” he added. “They kept stonewalling it. Because in a budget shortage like the one we’re in right now, it’s not a budget priority. It should be.” City Councilman Ken Genser said members of the community would need to have patience. “The Bayside District thinks this is a big problem, and members of the public find it as something that’s lacking,” he said. “So we need to do this, but the question is how we should go about it. Attempts have been made, and it’s hard to find the right piece of land. Land is very hard to find downtown. There are also other priorities we need to deal with.”

“It was really just a safety issue for the staff and customers just in terms of being able to use the bathroom safely,” said Padric Gibson, a sales manager at the Borders Books on the Promenade. Borders shut its bathrooms in April 2002, a year and a half before the Barnes and Noble on the Promenade chose to do the same. “Inappropriate occurrences were happening in the restrooms — drug use, people were having sex ... It wasn’t safe to go in, and it wasn’t just limited to the homeless population,” he said.

few places to go. Maria Flores, the general manager at the La Salsa on the Promenade, said the restaurant has had to hold up more than its fair share of downtown bathroom users. She fingered transients as the most frequent abusers of La Salsa’s bathrooms, which require a coin to operate. “It’s supposed to be customers only,” said Flores, who has the special coins to open the restroom door behind the cash register. “A lot of restaurants here don’t have them, like Jamba Juice, and they send them over here. It’s not fair to say no ... We have a lot of problems with the homeless taking a shower, making a lot of mess. Because they don’t have any bathrooms on the Promenade. I waste a lot of money on towels, soap, you know, to clean it all up.” Petter Wichman, a bar tender at Britannia Pub on Santa Monica Boulevard, said passing transients have done much worse than mess up the bar’s bathroom, which is for customers only.

Prosecution’s evidence in case ‘circumstantial’ MURDER, from page 1

luring at least seven other women by posing as a publicity photographer for a James Bond movie or as an industry executive. In most cases, Paleologus asked that the women show up to the photo shoots wearing provocative clothing, including black high heel stiletto pumps, a short black mini skirt and nylons, according to testimony. That clothing was consistent with what Johnson was wearing when she was found dead two weeks after she disappeared. She also tried on the clothing at her 29th Street apartment for her roommate shortly before she went to meet Paleologus on Feb. 15, according to court testimony. Johnson disappeared that day after telling her roommates she was going to a photo shoot in Beverly Hills to meet a man she had met earlier at the Century City Mall. She was found dead on March 3 at the bottom of a ravine in Laurel Canyon, a remote neighborhood in the Hollywood Hills. Her ankles were bound, and she was covered in a sleeping bag. Johnson’s autopsy reveals that she was sexually assaulted and died of strangulation, as well as blunt force trauma and other contusions. Paleologus, 42, got three years proba-

tion after a jury deadlocked on charges against him in 1991 for attempted rape, assault and false imprisonment. He allegedly lured a woman into a hotel room after telling her she would meet famous people, including Madonna, at a party for record executives. Paleologus then allegedly tied the woman to a hotel bed and attempted to rape her, but she was able to escape. Paleologus has been convicted of six felonies since 1998 that range from grand theft to burglary to assault. He was released from state prison on Jan. 20, three weeks before Johnson disappeared. Paleologus, who has pleaded not guilty and could face the death penalty if convicted, said he’s innocent and is being targeted based on his criminal history. Paleologus’ trial is expected to begin early next year. Paleologus’ attorney, Andrew Flier, didn’t return calls seeking comment. He told the Daily Press last year that the DA’s case is weak because it’s based on circumstantial evidence only. He pointed out that the prosecution has no scientific evidence linking Paleologus to the murder — no fingerprints were found her car, no blood or DNA was found in any of the places searched by police, or near her body.

Paying homage to the Godfather EASY WRITER, from page 3

Friday, Aug. 6 On my way out of Diego, I wanted to see for myself how a controversial proposal that is being considered in Santa Monica works. I rode over to the “dog beach” in Ocean Beach. Being skeptical about an unrestricted off-leash beach for dogs in the first place, I expected to find an unruly canine sand potty. What I found was a well behaved, controlled and selfpoliced dog beach located on a stretch of sand that wasn’t the prettiest to begin with. Every one seemed happy with it although I did run into a resident who hated it. I guess I’ll need to get more Intel on dog beaches in say, Peoria, Ill., before I can fully weigh in. I headed toward Arizona on Highway 8 through Yuma, and then up to Gila Bend into Phoenix. I had been dreading but also anticipating this part of the trip not just because it would take time for me to get acclimated to long periods of time on the bike, but, I knew this would be the time I could lose much more body weight than the Atkins diet ever could. As I passed the Sequan Indian Reservation Casino Lounge and Resort and dropped down into the Imperial Valley, I felt the full brunt of the 113degree blow torch. After six hours and two gallons of water, the heat was taking its toll. But my goal was to pull it into Phoenix by sundown. I pulled onto Barry Goldwater Boulevard just before 7 p.m. Camping was not an option so I took advantage of the AAA “off-season” rate at a nearby motel and checked in. The Godfather’s hand is everywhere here. You can’t go a block without seeing something named for or after him. I cruised by the Barry Goldwater Center for

Strategic Studies and noticed a group of individuals having some sort of a Friday beer bash. I was in dire need of refreshment so I pulled into the parking lot to stir the pot. “What the blazes is that contraption?” one of the apparent ring leaders asked me. “It’s a motorcycle painted to look like a Zebra,” I said. “Looks more like a Zebra painted to look like a motorcycle,” he said as they all laughed. “Got a beer?” I said. “Republican or Democratic?” came a shout from the back. “Right now sir I’m about as Republican as it gets,” I crooned. I had a few beers with the boys, told them about what I was doing, and we shared some war stories. As I pulled out and said my good-byes, I noticed an America flag in the background flying at half staff. I broached the subject gingerly. “In all due respect gentlemen, the 30-day national morning for President Reagan is over. “Reagan, hell,” one said. “We keep Ole Glory at half mast for Barry.” Arizona is expanding exponentially. From the snow birds who flood there each winter to the ex-pat Californians cashing out and settling there, the place is a building frenzy. As I left the next morning I couldn’t help but wonder what The Godfather would think about his state now. He would probably say that it’s getting to big and commercial. But, he would probably be proud that you can roll down to the Salty Mermaid without a helmet on, order a kick-ass margarita at the bar and light up a Marlboro. Saturday, Aug. 8 If The Godfather still has a stranglehold on southern Arizona, he and his companions have made an unholy alliance with the “other” family to the North — The Bobbitts.

OPINION LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Presidential flip flop?

Voting for the ‘good Catholic boy’

Editor: As polls show voters favor less restrictive policy, the president aims to recast his stance regarding stem cell research. Sounds a lot like a “flip flop” to me.

Editor: He is not hedging. (Bobby) Shriver is now in the race (SMDP, Aug. 10, page 1). He refers to himself as a “good” Catholic boy — that was a refreshing change from a “nice” Jewish boy — yes, he has good PR behind him. As a “happy, good, nice” Santa Monican female, I will surely vote for him.

Flo Ginsburg Santa Monica

Republicans rule, Ron Editor: In response to Ron Scott Smith’s column (SMDP, Aug. 12, page 4) he asked what Bush has accomplished. 1) Landmark “No Child Left Behind” act passed. 2) A vicious dictator with ties to Al Qaida who killed 500,000 of his own people and furthermore vowed to destroy the United States has been captured. 3) In the process, millions of innocent people were liberated. (If Tibet were freed instead of Iraq, you and most of Hollywood would be doing cartwheels.) Ron goes on to correctly quote me “love him or hate him, at least you know where Bush stands on issues.” Bush is a man of character who stands firm on his values. Kerry on the other hand waffles all over the place. The Democratic party since Clinton has been so anxious to “people please” voters on both sides of an issue that they can only be defined as the “Depends on what the definition of the word ‘is’ is” party. The Democrats and candidate Kerry have ripped the heart and soul out of their own values. Aren’t Democrats supposed to be anti-war, pro-choice, environmentalists? After being against the war, Kerry came out last week saying that on third, fifth and seventh thought, he would have gone to war. Do you agree with him, Ron? (Tip: Make sure to have a backup answer that’s completely opposite since Kerry may be against the war, yet again, before your response is printed.) Has anyone checked the side of Kerry’s head or am I the only one who draws a parallel to him and the Manchurian candidate? In regards to abortion, Kerry believes life begins at conception. Ron, do you agree? Kerry owns six SUVs. Ron, does that represent the kind of environmentalist candidate you really want to ride with? If Kerry has democratic values then stand up and say so, one side or the other. But Kerry’s like his wife’s Heinz ketchup, 57 varieties of answers to the same question. You wait in an-tic-i-pation, but it won’t come out (on issues), you turn it upside down and shake it in frustration, but still you can’t get anything substantial. Finally, you just have to give up, “shove it” back in the fridge and go with some honest, hearty, Bush beans.

Banking on Shriver Editor: As a Santa Monica resident for almost 32 years, I couldn’t agree more with the sentiments of Mr. Saul Cohen, (SMDP, Aug. 4, page 4). I well recall some years back when my husband submitted plans for a lovely condo project on Ocean Park Boulevard. Unfortunately, it was denied due in large part to the vagaries of our City Council. I implicitly concur that the council’s “arbitrary, personal tastes in style and design, instead of all owing the housing builder to ‘comply’ with reasonable codified standards. Further, it’s Mr. Genser and his City Council cronies who appoint likeminded people to those very same city boards in order to stack the deck.” I couldn’t agree more that the whole City Council would do well to employ a sense of humor, instead of severely punishing people who have hedges that are too high. I well recall some years back, when the city sent me an order to cut my hedges on a property that I owned at the time. I went around all over this city, taking photos, including one of the house of Jane Fonda. Hedges provide safety and beauty and privacy. Better that instead of seeing ugly behemoth buildings in this “fair city by the bay.” So the outcome was indeed a good one. Armed with my photos, I submitted them in a personal meeting with some of the parks staff. I only had to cut a small wedge in the hedges so that the neighbor could see “a little better” while backing out of their driveway. The result was a good and peaceful one. I endorse Mr. Bobby Shriver, in his possible bid for the City Council. It’s time for new blood in that chamber. I love living in this city. My son Cory has gone to schools in this city: Grant Elementary, John Adams, and he’ll be attending Santa Monica High School this coming year. Rosemare A. Elton Santa Monica

Break out the ice skates Editor: I am responding to Randy Gardner’s statement (SMDP, Aug. 9, page 1) that it is kind of unique to have an ice rink in Santa Monica. If he grew up in Los Angeles, how could he have forgotten so quickly that the present location of Fred Segal on Fifth

To vote or not to vote is not really the question COMMON SCENTS BY CAROLE ORLIN

You probably don’t need to be reminded, but Election Day 2004 is 11 weeks from tomorrow. Yes, we are 78 days away from Nov. 2. From coast to coast, we will be making a decision for the highest office in the country: Bush or Kerry? In Santa Monica, we will be making a decision on the majority of the seats on the City Council (four of seven). I have always been interested in the political process. (Could this be the result of living in Washington, D.C., for more than 25 years?) It has never failed to amaze me that, in spite of our country’s emphasis on the importance of living in a democratic society, we almost always tend to have a disappointing turnout of actual voters from the rolls of eligible voters. Our highest turnouts are almost invariably in years in which we elect a president. However, those numbers appear to be relatively consistent with the data collected with the last election. In 2000, 51 percent of the overall eligible voting population actually voted, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, Federal

Elections Commission. You don’t have to be a statistician to realize that barely half of the eligible electorate takes the time and makes the effort to exercise his or her right to vote. It even amazes me that in an area like Santa Monica, where one would think that the level of education and income is on the higher end of the spectrum, that the percentages do not reflect a higher participation by its eligible residents. At the moment, I don’t think it’s important for anyone to have made up his or her mind as to which candidate to support. I do think it is critically important for everyone to make up his or her mind to cast a vote on the first Tuesday in November. I would suggest that making a decision to vote is unbelievably easy: Be registered to vote by Oct. 18, know your polling place and show up there on Election Day. By the way, if you are not registered to vote, the forms are readily available at City Hall, and other public buildings such as post offices and fire stations; or complete an online request form at www.ss.ca.gov/elections. Deciding on who should lead the country or lead our city is not quite so easy. One of the most significant problems in coming to a personal decision in the voting booth is the reality that there are always multiple issues that are important to each of us. These issues on the national

level can come from a large checklist of possibilities: The economy, security, our role in the Middle East and foreign policy, immigration, pro-choice or pro-life, stemcell research, Supreme Court nominations and leadership. The list could go on and on. Then, at the local level, we have the day-to-day “quality of life” issues that impact each of us in Santa Monica: Public safety, education, traffic, development, homelessness, the living wage, dog beaches, animal declawing, hedge heights, and on and on. Perhaps, there are positive signs here in Santa Monica that our community is prepared to show more active involvement in the electoral process. Last Monday, with the formal closing for filing nomination papers to become a candidate in the municipal election, a total of 19 council hopefuls threw their hats in the ring; The four council incumbents whose terms will expire are being joined by 15 challengers. The total number of council candidates four years ago was 13. The increased involvement also appears evident through the number of political action committees in Santa Monica that are lining up to endorse candidates. Historically, the city’s most powerful political group for the last 25 years, the Santa Monicans for Renters’ Rights (SMRR), finds itself joined by the political action committee of the Santa Monica

Chamber of Commerce, which will endorse candidates for the first time. These two significant groups — at least in terms of numbers and financing — are being joined by other formal and informal political groups like the Coalition for the Living Wage and the Coalition of Santa Monica City Employees. What makes our decisions more complicated is finding a candidate or candidates who share our personal views on all of the issues. Invariably, we find that the candidate might agree with us on some of these issues, but rarely (if ever) on all of the issues. It often comes down to prioritizing which issues are most important to us. It is my hope in future columns between now and Nov. 2 to identify some of the important issues that are confronting us in Santa Monica and try and sort out the candidates’ views to make our jobs in the selection process a bit easier. Furthermore, because of the large number of candidates running for the four council seats in Santa Monica, this election will require us to look very carefully at the impact of “splitting” votes among such a large group. Election day is looking more and more interesting. (Carole can be reached Caroleorlin@yahoo.com).

OPINION LETTERS TO THE EDITOR LETTERS, from page 6

Street and Broadway (Southeast corner) was the former home of an indoor ice rink that had been in Santa Monica for many years? I had never ice skated at that rink, by the time I discovered it was there, it closed, but being a transplanted New Yorker who has fond memories of ice skating in Central Park and Rockefeller Center, I am looking forward to a local outdoor venue for ice skating again. Charlotte Haberman Santa Monica

Loyal customer bids farewell Editor: Another era in Santa Monica has come to an end with the closing of the city’s last, family-owned stationery store, Santa Monica Stationers. As a longtime, loyal customer of Santa Monica Stationers since the 1960s, I cannot let the store and its memories just fade away without a few words of appreciation. A generation ago, there were small stationers supply shops scattered across the city. Perhaps the

best known to old-timers would be Carlisle’s Stationer’s, in downtown Santa Monica. Among the largest was Santa Monica Stationers, located in a cavernous building on Montana Avenue at 10th Street. Its narrow aisles full of products for writers and writing were of magical fascination to me as an ink-in-the-veins high school student in the ’60s. Plus, the shop boasted the first true Xerox copying machine I’d seen for public use. After the untimely passing of store owner Nick, his family relocated the business a mile south on Santa Monica Boulevard, in the same 900 block. For a while, the clientele followed, but over the years, the store seemed to lose customers as a new generation, less inclined to putting pen to paper, emerged. For four decades, I relied on Santa Monica Stationers for carbon paper, for specialty pens, for typewriter repairs, all sold to the background sounds of recorded big band music. Eventually Santa Monica Stationers shrank from three adjoining storefronts on Santa Monica Boulevard to a single storefront, and unable to compete with the soul-less likes of computer-oriented, ubiquitous Staples and Office Depot, this Santa Monica institution closed its doors for the last time on Friday, July 30. Farewell, old friend. Rufus Baker Santa Monica

Turn, turn, turn: Seasons change and so does life HIP TO BE SQUARE BY CAROLINE BODKIN

The day before my birthday, I attended a close family friend’s wedding in Seattle. Last weekend, I went to another up in Malibu, and I’ll go to another before the month’s up. Yep, it’s August, high heat of wedding season. Soon it will be back-toschool season, then the holiday season, then spring-cleaning season and onward. To everything turn, turn, turn, there is a season. And at the wedding, after we’d eaten dinner, I sat idly at the table, watching a large pack of the Seattle-based bride’s tattooed friends refill their beer cups from the kegs. The bride laughed with them about old times, and it occurred to me that today her life was changing. Old times were old, and the time ahead was something new for her. Her life had entered into a new season. On my right sat Georgia, the bride’s great aunt. She was born in Italy and had

never been married. On my left sat the best man, the bride’s brother, with whom I’d grown up. Georgia, a wonderful, joyous, warm person, looked at me and asked, “How old are you, now?” “Twenty-five tomorrow.” Followed by the inevitable response, “So it’s almost your turn.” And she nodded up at the bride. “I missed mine. I was back in Italy during my marrying season and by the time I got back to America, at your age, I was an old maid.” A different era, I suppose. At this point, the brother piped up. “Trust me,” he said, “taking your turn early can be disastrous. You’re better off, Georgia, you’re happy.” He spoke from experience. At 21, he met the girl of his dreams, took up her religion, married her, built a house with her and then found himself, one year later, looking into that house, his house, from outside, watching his wife with another man. They divorced a year ago, but she still refuses to give up his last name (even after he offered her money to do so). The same delusion that led her to believe she was ready to settle down now convinces her

he’ll come back some day. It’s tasteless. This is the same moral code that allows Britney Spears to marry a man who has two illegitimates who she just met. The brother sits back in his chair and sighs, “I want my wedding season to start over again.” Some events change life’s course irrevocably and obviously. Others cause change over time. Some winters come decidedly with a first snow, others descend gradually, with a slow cool. When the young man looked into his house and saw his new bride with another man, his life was changed, decidedly, forever. Even if he gets remarried, even if he never sees her again, he will never forget how much that hurt. I’d imagine this will become a life lesson for him, (for that he is lucky) and if his wedding season does come back, he will be wiser. Georgia, on the other hand, says she missed her turn, her wedding season came and left without her. But did she miss out? As I listened to other stories of her life, it was clear she’d lived fully, through life’s other seasons. And my guess is her turn came around again, but she didn’t take it. We’re compelled to do these

things in life, these things that humans do, like get married and have kids and blaze trails. But are we lesser people if we opt out of one or the other? Can our lives be full even if they miss a season or two? Is the disaster of a turn taken early better than a turn missed? I don’t believe all seasons come in the same colors, or at the same time, in life for all of us. You cannot ignore the importance of an individual’s personal passages. It is not safe to assume we should all experience the same things, in the same order. Life presents choices, and our power lies in making them. People will say you are late or early, that you missed out or jumped too soon. But seasons change in each life, at different times, for good reasons. Let that timing be determined by you and the events in your life. Extend your summer, prolong your fall, and if winter is too cold, then let spring be yours ahead of time.

Trying to climb aboard the Kerry Love Train EASY WRITER, from page 5

As I pulled into Flagstaff mid-day, Babb’s Bunch was there to welcome me. From the Ford dealership to the fly fishing store, the “northern family” owns just about everything. I used to kind of like Babbs. He was a made guy. He would saunter up to an Old Growth and knew what he was talking about. I liked the fact that he had a geology degree and established some good sound environmental policies. Then he sold out and joined that Yankee law firm that stripped away anything that he worked for. I am told he also shook a few Indian tribes down for some extra bones. The Godfather should have made a play for the North while he had a chance. I rolled on just outside of town to meet my old high school classmate Mike. Mike had just moved to Flagstaff with his wife, Sandra, their two sons, Clayton and Kyle, and their 5-year-old Great Dane, Kayla. Mike offered to put me up for a few days in exchange for me helping him plant some new trees and lay down some sod. I conveniently showed up a day late to

avoid the work. Mike had moved to Flagstaff to get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city. Mike runs the sales operation of an athletic apparel company from his house so he can virtually live anywhere. “So, how do you like it up here?” I asked him. “It’s great,” he retorted. “But, you have to watch out for the Bull Elks and the liberals,” he added. “Which one does Flagstaff have more of?” I inquired. “Oh, the liberals by far,” he chimed. As fate would have it I could not have timed my arrival into Flagstaff any better. The John Kerry for President Love Train was scheduled to arrive on Sunday. Bones and The Ketchup Queen were scheduled to speak at an evening rally. The Flagstaff visit was believed to be the first by a presidential nominee. This historic event presented itself to both Mike and me, a huge opportunity — for different reasons. With Arizona’s population booming and 10 electoral votes at stake, this Western outpost has become a vital battleground. Bones was in Arizona, sans Pretty Boy, to woo Indian tribal councils

within the state and in particular, to get the endorsement of the Navajo Nation, one of the largest if not the largest Indian tribe in the country. Eighty-five percent of Arizona’s tribal members vote Democratic but this huge edge is beginning to wane. Bones and Pretty Boy need all the votes they can get to snatch the state from W and The Puppet Master, who would be staking their claim later in the week down South, along with the Godfather’s annointment form on high. We planned on leaving the house about 9 p.m., avoiding traffic as Bones was going to go on about 9:30 p.m. Since my editor didn’t supply me with press credentials, I had to call up some favors from a few friends in the press corps aboard the Love Train. “Can’t do it, Lance,” came the reply. “Security is too tight on this one.” I responded, “Don’t worry.” I’ll remember that the next time you need access to a Santa Monicans For Renters Rights convention. I then called a friend who is a wily operative, hustling for a few camps. “Can

you get me on the Love Train?” I asked. “I’ll see what I can do, it’s going to be touch and go,” she said. We arrived about 9:10 p.m. and headed down to the tracks with cell phones in hand. Still no phone call. The call would never come. “I’ll fix her wagon on Halloween,” I muttered to myself. The Love Train arrived about an hour late due to some under-appreciated residents in Winslow holding up its progress. “Well Mike, it’s time to take matters into our own hands,” I said as it came to a stop. “Yes, it is my friend,” said Mike, as he unfurled the Bush/Cheney sign. “You got your job to do and I have mine.” With that we shook hands and parted ways. Security was indeed tight. Police, sheriff, DOT, Secret Service and DOF were everywhere. There was a hushed excitement in partisan air. As the Ketchup Queen got off the train followed by Bones I knew there was no way of getting in there. My only hope was to get close enough in one of the alley ways so as to get a good photo and ask a few questions of the spectator See EASY WRITER, page 8

forming for the past 30 years proves that the so-called “golden years” can be the peak of life, not just its conclusion. As Ebba would say in her smooth Swedish accent, “Ageing is not about getting older, it’s about getting better.” And anyone who witnesses her in action on the gymnastic rings is hard pressed to say otherwise. She can stretch in ways that wouldn’t seem possible at any age, much less 72, and her smiling enthusiasm and excitement at recalling her meetings with Ronald Reagan and Marlene Dietrich can be likened to the wide-eyed joy of a child on Christmas morning. The Daily Press sat down with Ebba at Muscle Beach one sunny afternoon as she prepared for the September Senior Olympics to talk about staying young, life at the CopaCabana and embracing each and every day. What is the competition like in the Senior Olympics? “In Senior Olympics, you enter in your age group, but there isn’t anyone in my age group because I go from 70 to 75. The woman closest to me in age is 45, so I’m there alone, but the thing is I’m competing with myself because I want to always get a better score. And I have been increasing my score from around four-point-something to six-point-something. So this year, I want to be perfect.” How long have you been working

out at Muscle Beach? “Well, it’s been probably close to 30 years off and on. I started working out when my youngest daughter took gymnastics, and then I got into it, and now I’m here, but she’s not. She can still do it, but she was six years old at that time, and she had a wonderful teacher, but I don’t know what happened. She got into something else — dancing, acting. “That’s how I got started. There was several of us mothers who said we would like to do gymnastics, and the teacher, a wonderful teacher, said OK, but then he disappeared, and then I looked for another teacher and found Bob Carreiro, who is fabulous. He is still my teacher. He teaches gymnastics and circus arts on La Cienega.” What is your workout routine? “Well, I do stretches that are similar to yoga stretches, and I stand on my head. I do my routine, and I do push-ups. I do 60 push-ups on my toes, but I don’t go all the way down. I do 60, and then later on I do 15. I go all the way down, but I do it on my knees. I used to do only 20, but since I got this amazing little thing (an energy pouch she wears around her neck) I’ve gone from 20 to 40 in one week. “It’s always the same (routine) everyday because that’s always in the back of my mind that I will do my act or the Olympics or something. I work out about an hour or hour and a half. I don’t do that much.” How have you adapted to ageing and still doing gymnastics and work-

ing out? “It’s the same. In fact, it gets easier. ‘Better not older’ is my motto. It doesn’t matter. It’s exactly the same. You have to work out, and you have to stretch. It’s no different. There are people who do things that I don’t do, but that doesn’t matter. Everyone in (Bob Carreiro’s class) does their own routine.” How did you get into dancing? “Well, it’s very interesting because my parents didn’t want me to be a dancer. They were very conservative. I had a friend who was a choreographer, and I worked in Canada doing her show where I actually had a solo doing point work because I had studied ballet. And I was at ballet lessons and someone said, ‘You should go to an audition,’ and I didn’t even know what it was, but I went and I got the job going to Canada for one summer, working in a nightclub. And this woman said, ‘You really should go and audition for the CopaCabana because you’re the type and you’re a good dancer.’ And they weren’t really looking for dancers, they were looking for very good showgirls, and I was a good dancer as well. So that’s how I got into that. And then I moved to New York and I did other work.” What was it like working at the CopaCabana? “You know, it was amazing. I was probably in four or five shows. And if you look up CopaCabana and the Copa Girls on the Internet, you get legendary Copa Girls. And we were. We became

Did you meet anyone famous while at the Copa? “All the big stars worked at the Copa. I worked with Frank Sinatra... Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis. And the audience was full of celebrities. And I met Marlene Dietrich. I had a drink with Marlene Dietrich. It was wonderful, you know? But I was kind of new in this country, and I was really shy except when I was on stage — I felt totally like a fish in water. It was amazing, but in the dressing room they used to call me the quiet one. I was pretty fluent in English, but anyway, it was a wonderful experience.” What did you do after your Copa adventures? “My next job that was interesting was that I worked in Italy as part of a ballet company that was called American Broadway Ballet, and I actually got that through working at the Copa. I never auditioned. June Taylor’s husband called me up and said, ‘Would you like to go to Italy with the American Broadway Ballet,’ I said, ‘Yes, of course!’ “So, we were 12 girls and one male dancer, and we went to Italy in 1965 in November and landed in Rome, and the See PROFILES, page 9

endorsers. As I walked across the street paralleling the contingency, I got a glimpse of Mike hanging out with a small but vocal group supporting W and The Puppet Master. “Four more years”, “Flip-flopper” and “waffler” came the chants. As I whipped into an alley, the opportunity came. I was with a small group of mostly young Bones supporters waiting helplessly behind the yellow tape when the Ketchup Queen looked over from a distance and put up her hands. “Why don’t you join us,” she said. “Because they won’t let us in,” a young girl in her 20s answered back. With that The Ketchup Queen approached and started mingling with us much to the chagrin of the Secret Service. Not to be left

behind, Bones followed her into the alley. The Senator came up next to me, and I knew I had to ask him the tough questions I came here to ask. “Senator, a few questions sir.” Without a response, I shouted, “What do you think about your boy Bobby Shriver running for Santa Monica City Council?” No response. “Can he smoke Feinstein and Katz?” I pressed. Still no response. Finally I had to get his attention. Senator, please, just one question. “Do you support a dog beach in Santa Monica?” He twisted his neck and locked on to me with those swift boat eyes and answered, “Only if they vote Democratic.” With that he was whisked away by the now annoyed Secret Service agents.

Replenishing youth. I don’t want to get old.”

PROFILES, from page 8

Who influenced you in life? “I had an amazing maternal grandmother. She didn’t have any gray hair (at 96). She read the paper every day without glasses, and she died consciously at 96, because one of my uncles was talking to her and she said, ‘I am tired of listening to you. You bore me. I’m going to turn around, and I’m going to leave my body and die. Good-bye.’ “I learned so much from her. She totally, totally believed in keeping your body in a pure state — detoxified. She was a purist. I’m not, but if I get sick, I know I need to go on a cleansing diet or fast or whatever. I learned that from her. She would fast every single year for 30 days on water. It’s the most fabulous feeling. You can’t do anything better for you body. You’re giving your body a rest. “She was definitely an inspiration.”

interesting thing is, all of us girls have kept in touch. In this coming November we’re having reunion in Arizona because three of the girls live in Arizona. There’s only nine of us left.” Were you ever married and how did that affect your performing career? “I was married in 1962, divorced in 1979. I have two daughters, one is who is a photographer and one who is a dancer, actress, everything. When I got married, my husband didn’t want me to work, and I’m very, very happy that I could be home with my daughters when they were really small, but I’m a ham! “I like to perform. That’s why I like gymnastics and why I kind of went more into gymnastics than into dancing — because I can perform. I mean, doing the senior Olympics, it’s not a big audience, but I’m on, you know what I mean? “So now, what I’m really looking for personally is somebody that would be a fabulous manager or agent that would book me to do my act and commercials and things like that for a very, very, very generous fee and sponsor some health food company or do something elegant. “I feel because I’m a trade on my age, I’m 72, almost 73, and I do things that as you said, not even you can do, that makes me valuable to somebody who thinks it’s good to stay young. That’s my passion.

You’ve seen a lot throughout your life, what’s do you remember about living through World War II? “When the war started in 1939, I was eight. My mother said, ‘I think there’s going to be a war,’ and I was thinking, ‘What’s a war?’ I didn’t even know what a war was. “Once in a while when they had trainings where we had to dash down into the cellar and sit quietly. But, you know, who knows about guns and war when you’re 8 or 9 years old? I heard, and I

don’t know if this is true, but Hitler said, ‘Well, let’s keep Sweden. Let’s leave Sweden alone so that we have some place to go to if something goes wrong.’ “I remember all the food was rationed, but my mother believed in fasting. It didn’t bother her at all. We always had plenty. She’d even give some away. We had plenty of food, you know? We were never starving, ever. “I do remember one thing that was interesting. Things like meat and eggs and coffee were rationed. Well, nobody in my house drank coffee, so she gave it away. Well, I think my father drank some, but we got the coupons for the children too. And the meat coupons I think she probably used them. But with the eggs, I remember with the eggs it was interesting because my mother had a relative who had some sort of egg farm. They were not chickens, they were geese eggs, and they were not rationed. So, my mother could buy all the goose eggs that she wanted. Geese eggs or whatever. And there was nothing wrong with them at all. “But we didn’t suffer in any way. I mean in any way. “There was one other thing that I noticed during the war and that is, we couldn’t drive. We were not allowed to buy any gasoline except for one car. So my mother got an extra engine that ran on coal. It was huge engine. She filled it up with coal, and you had to do strange things to make it start. And that way we didn’t use any gasoline for the car. It was really weird, but it worked. It worked.”

How has the city changed since the 1960s? “The biggest change, I think personally, has probably been the Third Street Promenade. I used to take my daughter to dancing lessons on Wilshire Boulevard just off Third Street, and there was nothing. I’m talking 25 years ago, nothing. There was Newberry’s Five & Dime store. It was nice. It was really nice, but I would hang around there and go some place and have a beer because she would be in class for two to three hours. That has changed enormously, plus the traffic and all these beautiful hotels. I mean, it’s starting to look like the French Riviera.” Are the changes for better or for worse? “Oh, it’s always getting better. It’s just better.” What’s your philosophy on life? “Well, I’m always working on it, always, every day. It’s getting better, not older, and have as much fun as possible, and try and live life to the fullest every moment.” What advice would you give to both young and old? “Enjoy your life to the fullest and acknowledge how wonderful and fabulous you really are and have fun. Follow you own guidance. Follow your heart and do what you like, you know. Appreciate life and stay healthy. That’s about it.”

Hurricane Charley leaves Florida in devastation BY MARK LONG AND ALLEN G. BREED Associated Press Writers

PUNTA GORDA, Fla. — Rescuers rummaged through a chaotic landscape of pulverized homes and twisted metal Saturday, racing to tally Hurricane Charley’s “significant loss of life’’ and help thousands left homeless by its vicious winds and rain. At least 15 people were confirmed dead. As a weakened Charley churned into the Carolinas and was downgraded to a tropical storm, newly sunny skies revealed its destruction in Florida, where emergency officials pronounced it the worst to wallop the state since Hurricane Andrew tore through in 1992. Twenty-six deaths were directly linked to Andrew, which caused $19.9 billion in damage. “Our worst fears have come true,’’ said Gov. Jeb Bush, who surveyed the devastation by helicopter. The Category 4 storm was expected to cost Florida “at least several billion dollars,’’ said Loretta Worters, spokeswoman for the Insurance Information Institute. Ten deaths had been confirmed in Charlotte County, said Wayne Sallade, the county’s director of emergency management, but no exact death toll was available. “It’s Andrew all over again,’’ Sallade said.

“We believe there’s significant loss of life, he said, adding later: “I would hope that it would be limited to dozens, if that.’’ He said “thousands upon thousands of people’’ lost their homes. Hundreds were unaccounted for in the county, which includes Punta Gorda and Port Charlotte, the apparent hardest-hit areas. Extensive damage was also reported on exclusive Captiva Island, a narrow strip of sand west of Fort Myers. Thirty-one mobile-home parks in Charlotte County sustained major damage, some with more than 1,000 units, said Bob Carpenter, a sheriff’s spokesman. He said teams were sent to each park to search for bodies and survivors, but “we just couldn’t get the vehicles in — there is so much debris.’’ Several medical centers were badly damaged, forcing hospital officials to evacuate patients to other facilities. “Where do we go now? What do we do?’’ said 69-yearold Barbara Seaman, standing by the shell of a demolished building in Punta Gorda’s Windmill Village Trailer Park. The storm and its 145-mph winds knocked out power to some 2 million homes and businesses as it crossed from the southwest coast at Punta Gorda to the Atlantic at Daytona Beach. Some 1.3 million remained without power Saturday afternoon, emergency officials said, and downed lines slowed some rescuers.

Three cities in southwest Florida — Arcadia, Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda — were without running water, state environmental officials said. President Bush, the governor’s brother, declared Florida a federal disaster area. The president planned a visit Sunday to survey damage, and Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry, in a statement, offered “heartfelt sympathies.’’ The hurricane rapidly gained strength in the Gulf of Mexico after crossing Cuba and swinging around the Florida Keys as a more moderate Category 2 storm Friday morning. An estimated 1.4 million people evacuated in anticipation. When it hit, the storm upended trucks, twisted traffic lights and lifted entire houses atop neighbors’ homes. Entire trailer parks were torn to splinters, and dazed residents wandered around neighborhoods, gathering miscellaneous belongings. At the Port Charlotte airport, small planes were stacked and snapped apart like toys cast off by an angry child. “I’ve been through typhoons in Guam, and I’ve never seen anything like this,’’ said Charles Charwat, an 84year-old retiree in Ormond Beach, on Florida’s east coast. There were five confirmed storm-related deaths elsewhere in the state. Mike McHargue, director of investigations for the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, said two people died in Polk County, and the others were in DeSoto, Lee and Sarasota counties. He said downed power lines and debris made the work of searching for bodies “tedious and dangerous.’’ Deputies were standing guard over some bodies because they were in areas not immediately accessible by ambulances. Earlier, Charley killed four people in Cuba and one in Jamaica. As recovery efforts began, Florida officials warned against price gouging and said violators would face heavy fines. The state’s emergency response team was deploying more than 1.8 million gallons of bottled water and 2.9 million pounds of ice to damaged areas. Deputy State Health Officer Bonnie Sorensen said three medical disaster teams, with 35 to 50 health care workers, were in place and another five would arrive to help those in need. Hundreds of miles north, Charley’s course took it across open ocean, missing the westward curving shore of Georgia. It made its second landfall on South Carolina’s Grand Strand resort region, which was nearly empty after a mandatory evacuation of some of the area’s 180,000 tourists and residents. National Guard troops were on duty Saturday in North Carolina, where a mandatory evacuation order was in effect for vulnerable coastal areas hit less than two weeks ago by Hurricane Alex. In Virginia, Gov. Mark R. Warner declared a state of emergency. Charleyrelated weather was forecast as far north as Massachusetts, the New York metropolitan area and swaths of northern Pennsylvania. All of New Jersey was under a flood watch Saturday afternoon. The American Red Cross set up more than 250 disaster relief shelters in Florida and 40 shelters in the Carolinas. Staffers and volunteers were providing dry clothing, meals, first aid and counseling. In Orlando, central Florida’s major theme parks reopened Saturday. At Walt Disney World, the Magic Kingdom, Epcot and Disney-MGM Studios opened, but staff shortages kept Animal Kingdom closed. Fifty inspectors at Universal Studios Orlando checked all the rides and ruled them safe.

Reservation coal mine threatened by disputes BY MICHELLE ROBERTS RUSHLO Associated Press Writer

PHOENIX — Below the wild grasses, top soil and heavy chunks of rock on Black Mesa sit tons of black coal, a power source for millions of people in the West. For three decades, the Black Mesa mine and the adjoining Kayenta mine, both operated some 300 miles from Phoenix by Peabody Energy, have provided millions of dollars in revenue and hundreds of jobs to the Hopi and Navajo tribes, which have few other economic resources on their remote reservations. But the Black Mesa mine — battered by water, legal and other concerns — now faces a likely shutdown. “It’s going to be a very catastrophic effect on the tribe,” said Hopi Chairman Wayne Taylor Jr. Loss of the mine would cost the tribe about $7.7 million per year. The Hopi Tribe’s annual operating budget is about $22 million. “We are very rural. We’re very isolated. We don’t have a whole lot in the way of economy,” Taylor said. The same goes for the Navajos, who get about $25 million annually from Black Mesa, said Deana Jackson, a spokeswoman for Navajo President Joe Shirley Jr. The nation’s largest Indian tribe, the Navajo Nation has an annual operating budget of $529 million. That is why Navajo and Hopi officials, along with Peabody and utility providers, are trying to ensure the mining operation continues even as the odds against it mount. The Kayenta mine, which is adjoining but operates differently from Black Mesa, does not face the same difficulties. But if the Black Mesa mine is to continue beyond 2005, it will have to overcome a series of hurdles. Black Mesa is the sole provider of coal to the Mohave Generating Station, a power plant 270 miles away in Laughlin, Nev., managed by Southern California Edison. Black Mesa and Mohave have an exclusive deal with one another. To get the coal from Black Mesa to the generating station, it is crushed to powder, mixed with water and sent through a pipeline straight to the power plant. The transportation system was set up because trucking and rail lines were inefficient, said Peabody spokeswoman Beth Sutton. But the pipeline requires groundwater, roughly 4,000 acre-feet annually. Numerous studies have been done on the effects of mining, and Peabody says mining is having no lasting effect on a vast aquifer in the area. The aquifer is believed to contain 400 million acre-feet across an area the size of Delaware.

The tribes, concerned that some natural springs have dried as drought has persisted in the West, have pushed for an end to the use of the current aquifer. “We still rely on the spring water for these ceremonial purposes, and we’re seeing that dry up,” Taylor said. “We believe that water is our lifeblood. ... We consider it to be extremely special to us.” Even though Peabody contends that plenty of water is available and drying of the springs is not related to mining, it has agreed to pursue use of another larger aquifer nearby. “We believe that the (currently used) aquifer remains healthy and robust,” said Sutton. But “we seek to resolve cultural concerns that are associated with using the aquifer.” A preliminary study of the larger aquifer has been done, but a more detailed study was started by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation in May. It is being funded by Edison and the other owners of the Mohave Generating Station. The BOR, which deals mostly with dams and surface water, does not have regulatory authority over the aquifer. The Navajo and Hopi have asked that pumping from the current aquifer stop by the end of next year. That is one of the reasons for the likely shutdown, though the tribes say they may be flexible on the timetable if anoth-

er water source can be tapped. Water isn’t the only issue involved, however; other problems also threaten the mine’s future. The current exclusive agreement between Black Mesa and Mohave is up for renewal after 2005, as is the coal supply agreement with the tribes. And the Mohave Generating Station itself may close about that time. The owners of Mohave, which include SoCal Edison, Salt River Project in Arizona, Nevada Power Co. and the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, agreed in 1999 to install new pollution controls on the plant after being sued by environmentalists. The Grand Canyon Trust, Sierra Club and National Parks and Conservation Association sued in the late 1990s, saying the plant was putting out too many particulates and too much sulfur dioxide. The basis for the suit was the pollution level in the emissions, but environmentalists believe the resulting haze also reduces visibility at the Grand Canyon, some 60 miles away, said Rick Moore, associate director of the Grand Canyon Trust. The Mohave owners agreed to install new pollutioncontrol equipment but did not believe they were violating pollution standards, said Gil Alexander, a spokesman for SoCal Edison.
