Broad jilts Santa Monica, chooses L.A. for museum

Preservationists fight condo project BY KEVIN HERRERA Editor in Chief

OCEAN AVE Concerned the SpanishColonial revival design of a proposed condominium project here would detract from the neighborhood’s historic character, preservationists said they are prepared to fight a Dallas-based developer’s plan, which won approval from the Planning Commission last week. The condominium complex, which consists of three separate buildings surrounding a 5,000 square-foot central courtyard at the corner of Ocean Avenue and San Vicente Boulevard, will replace the former home of Santa Monica’s first female mayor, Clo Hoover, who led the fight against the demolition of the Santa Monica and Newcomb piers and the construction of an island in the Santa Monica Bay. Preservationists lobbied for the building to be landmarked based on its association with Hoover, who built a 47-unit apartment complex during the 1950s with her husband, Chester, when the two moved out west from Kentucky. It served as the couple’s primary residence and a source of income. The Landmarks Commission, on a 4-3 vote, approved landmark status, however, it was appealed to the City Council by the property owner, TrammellCrow Co., one of the nation’s largest developers. The council, on a 4-2 vote, overturned the designation, paving the way for demolition. John Berley, an architectural historian and member of the Santa Monica Landmarks commission, said the condo project, which includes 20 units, five of which for moderate-income households, incorporates elements of the garden courtyard style that dominates San Vicente from Ocean to Seventh Street. However, he and other preservationists can’t get over the design, which they say is inappropriate, particularly for the location, which has been characterized as a “gateway” to San Vicente, which some would like to have designated an historic district. “It’s important for Santa Monica to retain a very strong sense of place,” Berley said. TrammellCrow submitted an earlier project that featured a more modern, contemporary design with a curved facade that was

CIVIC CENTER Billionaire philanthropist Eli Broad has chosen downtown Los Angeles over Santa Monica as the site to house his extensive contemporary art collection after a decision by the Grand Avenue Authority on Monday to approve his plans for the project. Broad had already received approvals from the Los Angeles City Council, the Community Redevelopment Agency and the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors to build in Los Angeles. The authority’s decision was the final approval needed from a governmental agency. “Influencing our decision was my commitment to downtown Los Angeles over the past 30 years, including my role as founding chairman of MOCA in 1979, our work with Mayor Riordan to construct the Walt Disney Concert Hall and the High School for Visual and Performing Arts, and my prior involvement with the Grand Avenue Project,” Broad said in a letter to Santa Monica City Manager Rod Gould. “We in the city are not terribly surprised because Mr. Broad has telegraphed for a number of months now his preference to build a museum in L.A. because it would draw more visitors in L.A. and help revitalize L.A.’s downtown,” Gould said. “We continue to believe ours was the superior site and he could build here faster. We wish Mr. Broad and L.A. the best and congratulate them both.” As part of the deal, Broad will pay L.A.’s Community Redevelopment Agency $7.7 million to lease the land and will endow $200 million to the Broad Art Foundation to cover operating expenses. They are expected to spend between $80 and $100 million to build the museum and an underground parking garage. “Our heart is on Grand Avenue in downtown Los Angeles. This is our gift to the city that has been so good to us,” Broad said. “We would like to extend our thanks to the city of

Q&A: How safe are eggs? STEPHANIE NANO Associated Press Writer

SAY CHEESE!

Here comes the real heat SUE MANNING Associated Press Writer

LOS ANGELES It’s been a mild summer in sunny Southern California with the usual warm spots, but now temperatures are rising and nearly every place will be hot. Temperatures at the beaches will reach the 80s and 90s, it will be 100 to 105 on lower mountain slopes, like the San Gabriel Mountains, 105 to 110 for interior valleys and 110 to 120 in the deserts and into Arizona, National Weather Service meteorologist Eric Boldt said. The late summer heat wave comes with all kinds of good news, especially for firefighters, he said. It won’t last long, there will be very little humidity and there won’t be any winds. Excessive heat warnings have been issued for the hottest days — Tuesday and Wednesday — for many areas in Central and Southern California. By Friday, the

heat wave should be over, Boldt predicted. Electricity won’t be a problem, said Stephanie McCorkle, spokeswoman for the California Independent System Operator in Folsom. "We have 800 to 1,000 megawatts of hydroelectricity this summer due to the nice wet winter and spring and mild summer. Hydroelectricity is something we can keep for high demand periods. Since we have had no high demand periods, we have extra,” she said. Extreme heat will be a jolt to Californians who’ve had a cool summer thanks to cold water along the coast that kept forming a cloud cover over the state. Water temperatures along the coast are still cool, in the 50s and lower 60s. The heat is being caused by a large, high pressure system that has been sitting over Texas and the southern Plains and is shifting west, Boldt said. He urged residents to use common sense

— confine outdoor activities to mornings and evenings; stay in the shade while outside; seek respite in air conditioned buildings when possible; drink lots of fluid, especially water; and avoid excessive exercise. If you will be in the sun, wear sunscreen. Without it, you will burn in 20 minutes, he said. And don’t leave a child, a disabled person or a pet in a car, Boldt said. The weather service is using a rhyme to help people remember to check their cars before locking them, although he didn’t know the origin of it. “Beat the heat, check the back seat,” he said. The temperature in a car rises about 3 degrees every five minutes, and 80 percent of the warmup will happen in the first 30 minutes, Boldt said. If it is 80 degrees, the inside of a closed car will reach 114 degrees in a half hour. “If it’s over 105, it will get to 120 or 135 very quickly,” he said.

Two large Iowa farms have recalled 550 million eggs because of possible contamination with salmonella. Investigators from the Food and Drug Administration are trying to find the cause of the outbreak, but so far haven’t pinpointed the source. Q: A half-billion — isn’t that a lot of eggs? A: Well, yes and no. Those 550 million eggs might seem like a lot. But that’s less than 1 percent of the roughly 80 billion eggs sold in their shell each year, according to the United Egg Producers, an industry group. Americans consume about 220 million eggs a day, based on industry estimates. Q: Is the outbreak likely to spread? A: There’s no sign at this point that there are more than the two farms involved, Food and Drug Administration chief Margaret Hamburg said Monday. The recalls started earlier this month when Iowa’s Wright County Egg recalled a total of 380 million eggs after some cases of salmonella poisoning were traced back to eggs from its farms. Then last Friday, a second Iowa farm, Hillandale Farms, announced the recall of more than 170 million eggs after tests confirmed salmonella. Q: Did the eggs get sent to my state? A: The eggs went to stores or distributors in mostly western or midwestern states, and were shipped nationwide under a variety of brand names. Recalled eggs have a specific plant number and packaged date on the carton; check the FDA website to see if your eggs have been recalled: http://bit.ly/9yambn Q: How far back does the recall go? A: Eggs included in the recall were packaged as far back as four months ago, so it’s likely that many of the eggs have already been eaten. If you have any suspect cartons, return them to the store or throw them out. The Wright County Egg recall extends back to May 15; the Hillandale recall goes back to April 9. Q: How many people have actually gotten sick? A: No one knows for sure. Officials say it could be as many as 1,300 so far. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention saw a spike in illnesses from a specific strain of salmonella in May. Through the end of July, there were about 2,000 cases — that’s about 1,300 more than would be expected for that three-month

Reese Halter

Get off the sidewalk Editor:

A far bigger problem than bicyclists riding against traffic is that of bicyclists riding on the sidewalks. I walk almost everywhere in Santa Monica, covering on average 15 miles per week. I have been hit twice by bicyclists and constantly have to dodge them on sidewalks. On two occasions bicyclists were yelling at pedestrians to get out of the way and forcing them off the sidewalk. I called the police on those two occasions and they took the complaint and a description, but I have never heard back from them as to whether or not they found the bicyclists. I have several times seen the police drive right past bicyclists riding on the sidewalk and have only once seen them confront a rider. But police enforcement, or lack of it, is not really the main problem. The mindless congestion that has occurred in this city is the major part of the problem and that is related to the massive over-building that has been allowed at the hands of those who claim to work for our best interests. You can decide what the solution to that is.

Phil Hendricks Santa Monica

Grounded Editor:

On Monday, Aug. 17, 2010, Santa Monica Airport was shut down to accommodate the visit of President Obama to Los Angeles. What a joy to have a quiet day and to be able to enjoy outdoor dining on the back patio. A handful of private aviators and flight schools were impacted. Roughly 90,000 citizens had a wonderful experience, no aviation noise. It is fully understood that special government requirement will make it very difficult to close Santa Monica Airport. But, as it stands now, private aviation has priority over the citizens of the Westside. If that could be fixed or adjusted in some way, “Wouldn’t it be wonderful.”

Jack Chatowski Santa Monica

Picture worth a thousand words Editor:

I would take Robert Maschio, and others, more seriously if they would preface their rambles with the date on which they moved into their present house near Santa Monica Airport. He must rue the day when someone invented the wheel! Aeroplanes are here to stay, Robert, get used to it. I heard of a similar protest in England, the council took along to the meeting an aerial photograph taken when the airfield was a USAF bomber base, in the middle of green fields, and the representative pointed out to the meeting that they would not be there that night if it hadn't been for the presence of that airfield so many years ago. He then asked each villager to come to the stage and point out exactly which one of their houses was on the old photograph! Brilliant.

The Medieval Warm Period and how it impacts today MY CHILDREN OFTEN ASK: WHY IS HISTORY

so important? For which I regularly answer — because the past is rich with information and lessons. From about AD 800 to 1300 the Earth underwent a slight warming period dubbed “The Medieval Warm Period.” Most places experienced milder winters and longer summers but temperature differences never amounted to more than 1.8 degrees or so. And everywhere was not necessarily warmer. For example, the eastern Pacific was cooler and drier. Globally, the climate went through sudden and unpredictable swings. The most startling was the extent and duration of droughts. The difference between three quarters of an inch of precipitation spells the difference between life and death. During the Medieval Warm Period much of North America through to Central and South America, and across the Pacific to China, experienced long periods of severe aridity. Without a doubt we know from tree rings, cherry blossom records dating back 1,000 years from Korea and Japan, western Pacific corals, seabed cores, ice cores from polar, subtropical and tropical mountain glaciers, and cores from alpine lakes that droughts were the lethal silent killer of the Medieval Warm Period. Prolonged Medieval droughts decimated Chaco Canyon and the Pueblo peoples of the American southwest and the Angkor Wat of India. Repeated drought cycles leveled the Mayans of Middle America, and starved tens of thousands of northern Chinese farmers. Droughts also forced Mongolian horse nomads to search for new pastures and saw the rise in AD 1206 of Genghis Khan, a brilliant leader who conquered more than twice as much as any other man in history. Interestingly, he created the first international postal system. And during his reign he lowered taxes for everyone, and abolished them altogether for doctors, teachers, priests, and educational institutions. Tree rings from cottonwoods and Jeffrey pines unearthed from a receding lakebed in east central California revealed intense droughts between AD 910 to 1100 and AD 1250 to 1350. The only way the Native Americans survived during these arid times was to cooperate and carefully manage their water supplies and food resources across the harsh landscape. The endless debate over anthropogenic global warming is over, the voluminous scientific evidence detailing our contributions to today’s warmer world and of the future has well passed the phase of controversy. Today, we are experiencing a sustained warming trend since the end of the Pleistocene glaciation some 14,670 years ago. The Quelcaya ice cap of southern Peru is retreating more than 197 feet a year, three times faster than in the 1960s. The Peruvian

Andes have lost more than 21 percent of their glacier area since 1970. At least 27 million people rely on the glaciers for their water supply. Lake Mead, an enormous reservoir of the mighty Colorado River, provides water for Arizona, Nevada, California and northern Mexico; and it’s falling to a level not seen since it was first filled in the 1930s. Scientists are predicting a 50 percent chance that Lake Mead will run dry by 2021. Over the past decade, the Southwest has suffered the sharpest temperature increase on the continent, declining late-season snowpacks, loss of forests and raging wildfires; and all the while growing faster than any other region in the United States. Global warming is predicted to reduce the snowpack runoff that feeds the Colorado River by as much as 45 percent over the next 50 years. The continent of Australia has been pummeled by global warming over the past decade. The cities of Perth, Sydney and Melbourne currently rely heavily upon newly created desalinization facilities, and the state of Victoria is getting set to open a plant in 2011 that will dwarf all others in the nation. The lessons from the warm centuries of a thousand years ago clearly show us that drought is a real global problem. And those droughts of a warmer future will become prolonged and more intense. Drought and water are the most important issues for this and future centuries. Fresh water is the lifeblood of our planet — for agriculture, for herds, for drinking, and for wild ecosystems. Currently, each year we are drawing 42 billion gallons of water from the Ogalla aquifer, which supplies eight states from Nebraska to Texas. And Las Vegas is trying to buy up any and all water that it can secure. UNESCO estimates that 1.1 billion people do not have drinking water and about 2.6 billion people lack basic sanitation. By 2025, about 2.8 billion people will live in areas of increasingly scarce water supplies. By 2030, UNESCO also estimates that the world will need 55 percent more food with an ever-increasing demand for irrigation, which already claims about 70 percent of all fresh water consumed by humans. In addition, they estimate that 2 billion people will be squatters in urban centers. Global warming will require a massive intervention on an international and longterm scale. The time is now that we as a species plan for our great-grand children. This will require political, social and corporate thinking as never seen before. DR.

If we told young men that they’ll be giving about 25 percent of their gross paycheck for child support, they might think twice about prevention. If we told them that with a minimum wage job of $10 an hour, they will spend $430 a month in child support, it might wake them up. If we explained that 18 years of child support would cost them $92,000 — about the equivalent of the young man’s college education — they might begin to understand that having a child when you’re unprepared can mean the difference between a great future and a dead-end future. When a baby is born, if the couple doesn’t live together, dad can expect to see his child between four and eight hours a week, or four percent of the time, if the court makes orders. How much parenting can you do with four hours a week? Over the course of the next few years, it will increase to about 20 percent of the week. The problem is that so many young men are growing up with absent fathers, which creates a desire in them to be a father themselves; but the reality is that the legal system will likely force them to be just another absent father. We need to educate these young men and give them the tools they need to make the right decisions in life. If not, we are just preparing them for failure.

says Joey from Jersey. He’s 18, and that’s what he thinks he needs to know about sex. I can’t fault him — it’s no worse than most of my clients. I’m a divorce and child custody lawyer. The problem is that at 18, he’s a man, and he needs to know a lot more about what having a child means, both for his future, and for the future of any child he fathers. We were in the Jacuzzi at the Loews Hotel, surrounded by nubile girls, and Joey was on high alert for any female that he could conquer. He was looking past me as we exchanged the meaningless banter that people who don’t know each other exchange. He had just graduated high school and was taking a year off to travel before college. Seeing him all amped up about girls got me thinking about what they teach in high school about sex and family planning, and the carnage I see on a regular basis in my practice. I asked him if anyone had ever explained to him what really happens when two people have a child. Not the fairytale ending of living happily ever after, but the more likely scenario of being a co-parent with someone that you barely know and don’t have much in common with. “No, not really. I have an idea because my parents were divorced,” he said. And that’s when it hit me: we need to tell young men — boys really — what co-parenting is really like. The focus has been on the girls and those robodolls that used to teach kids the rigors of parenting. But there’s another side they need to know about. The boys’ side. The side that is expected to pay for those “accidental” children. Eighteen years of child support that will cripple your future if you fall behind; and not being allowed to have full access to your kid takes an emotional toll. It’s the side of the prevention/abstinence argument that is not spoken about. The hard realities of what it will do to the boys. I get to see the wreckage that happens, to both sides. Mom is trying to raise a child without enough resources, and dad is ill-equipped to better his life, or that of his child, because he’s laboring under a child support award that takes his driver’s license from him if he falls behind in payments. If we want to make better men, we need to arm them with the reality of the consequences of their actions. I see men every week who have no idea what’s expected of them as fathers — financially or emotionally. Most of my clients think they’re going to

The approved “agreement in principle” offered to expedite the project’s planning and entitlement process, contribute $2.7 million to the museum and lease the site for the building for a 99-year term at $1 per year. However, despite financially advantageous terms, Broad’s decision to build in Los Angeles did not surprise city officials. “I felt that three months ago that he was not going to come to Santa Monica,” Councilmember Bob Holbrook said. “I just think he's been so integral with the development of downtown L.A. He's been doing business with L.A. for so many years … the pressures to stay there became paramount,” Holbrook said.

Although disappointed with Broad’s decision, Councilmember Richard Bloom said he is excited to see the collection stay within Los Angeles and is hopeful that the completion of the Exposition Light Rail Transit Line will make it easier for Santa Monica residents to enjoy art. “We should be excited about what’s happening in Santa Monica and what’s happening in downtown L.A.,” Bloom said. “We’re an important city in the region, but we’re part of a larger community as well.” As to the future of the 2.5-acre lot the Broad museum left behind, city officials are planning on evaluating other options. “I’m sorry that he didn’t choose Santa Monica, but I wish he and his wife well. We plan to move forward and there are some other opportunities,” Holbrook said. “Santa Monica is still considered a very desirous place to locate such a feature.” Holbrook mentioned at least two other parties who have personally contacted him interested in creating a museum in the civic center, including a butterfly museum. “We haven’t considered anything formally at this point. There have been discussions around other possible ideas. I’m

hoping some creative ideas will surface in the near future,” Bloom said. The 120,000-square-foot museum is expected to be built across the street form the Walt Disney Concert Hall and Museum of Contemporary Art on the southwest corner of Second Street and Grand Avenue, and will be designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro. The Broad Collection will serve as a public art museum and headquarters of the Broad Art Foundation’s lending library. The building is expected to house a lecture hall, museum shop and sky-lit galleries featuring notable artists such as Andy Warhol, Cindy Sherman and Roy Lichtenstein. news@smdp.com

rejected by community members. Berley feels the developer went too far in the opposite direction to appease critics. “They unfortunately had a knee-jerk reaction for feelgood architecture, which in this case is Spanish-Colonial revival, which I must say is shockingly disappointing,” he said. Two planning commissioners, Hank Koning and Gwynne Pugh, who are architects, blasted the design as well, however, aesthetics are not under the commission’s purview. The commission looks strictly at compatibility issues such as the scale of a project, not the design. That said, it was clear members of the commission want to see changes. Members voted to approve the project but want the developer to meet with the Architectural Review Board to discuss the design. The project’s architect, Howard Laks, told the commissioners that the design was in response to community feedback in which residents complained about the contemporary design. “I do not feel that the design is out of character with the surrounding neighborhood in that the neighborhood is eclectic in nature and offers a number of architectural styles,” Laks said. A representative from TrammellCrow said the company does not comment on criticism of design given that “design is subjective,” however, they believe the project will “make a statement” worthy of its location, which features stunning, panoramic views of the Santa Monica Bay. TrammellCrow purchased the 47-unit apartment building in 2007. Residents there were forced to relocate in 2009 during the landmarks process. Planning Commissioner Jim Reis said above all else, his biggest problem with the project is the displacement of those residents. By losing 27 units, the jobs-housing imbalance in Santa Monica increased. “I want to keep as many housing units in Santa Monica … ,” Reis said. Reis said the project would also cater to the wealthy, limiting the types of residents who can afford to live there. He said he would also like to see more landscaping but feels confident the architect, who is Santa Monica-based, can make the project work if given the opportunity. The scale and size of the project was in line with current zoning codes, Reis said, making its approval routine. The proposed condo project will feature three buildings, two will be four stories in height while a third will be three stories. As part of City Hall’s Affordable Housing Production Program, TrammellCrow agreed to set aside five, two-bedroom units for moderate-income households, which in Santa Monica means a family of four earning $82,800 a year. A hearing with the Architectural Review Board has yet to be scheduled, city officials said.

EGGS FROM PAGE 3 period. That’s where the 1,300 figure comes from, although some of the excess cases may not be tied to this outbreak. The number is likely to grow since it can take weeks for reports to be filed. Q: Has anyone died in this outbreak? A: No deaths have been reported. The most common symptoms of salmonella are diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever within eight hours to 72 hours of eating a contaminated product. It can be life-threatening, especially to those with weakened immune systems. Salmonella is the most common form of food poisoning from bacteria, and the strain involved in the outbreak is the most common kind, accounting for about 20 percent of all such food poisonings. Q: Are the eggs sold at my grocery store safe? A: Recalled eggs should have been removed from store shelves. But you can check the FDA website http://bit.ly/9yambn for the brands involved and double-check the egg carton. Q: Can you tell by looking at the shell or egg if there’s salmonella?

A: No, there’s no way to tell. But consumers shouldn’t buy dirty or cracked eggs. Q: Then should I just skip eggs to be safe? A: As long as they’re not on the recall list, eggs should be OK. And thoroughly cooking them can kill the bacteria. But while federal investigators continue their work, the FDA’s Hamburg said consumers should strictly avoid “runny egg yolks for mopping up with toast.” Q: How do eggs get infected with salmonella? A: Salmonella bacteria can get on the outside of the shell from fecal matter. Or it can be inside the egg if the chicken is infected. Eggs are washed and disinfected to deal with the dirt and germs on shells, and some producers vaccinate chicks against salmonella. Infected hens, rodents or tainted feed could be the source of the outbreaks, according to Patrick McDonough, a food safety expert at Cornell University in Ithaca, N.Y. Salmonella is not passed from hen to hen, but usually from rodent droppings to chickens, he said. The two Iowa farms share suppliers of young chickens and feed. On Monday, an FDA official said the hatchery that supplies the farms has been certified salmonella-free. That suggests that the contamination may have occurred at the farms.

prep football players who suffered muscle damage during preseason training drills had been using high-protein supplements, although the substances haven’t been tied to the injuries, a doctor said Monday. Three of the McMinnville High School players are expected to remain in the hospital overnight Monday while their levels of an enzyme signaling muscle damage are monitored, said Dr. Craig Winkler, one of three treating the players. Winkler said the results of blood tests due Tuesday or Wednesday will determine whether any of them ingested a supplement such as creatine that could explain what happened. “A few of the kids did admit they were drinking protein shakes, but we don’t know what was in them,” Winkler said Monday. Winkler said it seems unlikely the players organized the use of a substance. “Usually, there’s going to be one kid who’s going to squeal, but we have heard nothing,” the doctor said. Players experienced painful swelling in their arms after a preseason “immersion camp” held at the high school on Aug. 15 by

their new coach, 50-year-old Jeff Kearin. They described intense drills in the high school’s wrestling room, where the temperature reached 115, Winkler said. He said the players had access to water at intervals, although they didn’t have water bottles nearby. “Some of the kids did drink, some didn’t,” he said. Winkler said local doctors are working on a list of recommendations for high school practices, such as preseason drills, including that they be suspended when temperatures rise above 100. McMinnville Police Capt. Dennis Marks said his force hasn’t begun an investigation. “We haven’t gotten any information from the school or medical officials to give us reason to open one at this point,” he said. The team was to begin fall practice Monday afternoon under Kearin, a veteran of nearly three decades at the high school and college level in California. He’s been head coach at Cal State Northridge, which cut football in 2001, according to a profile published this year in the McMinnville News-Register newspaper. Most recently, he coached Loyola High School to the Southern Section Division I championship before leaving the post in 2009.

SHEPARD

■ A Treasury Department inspector general reported in June that, out of 2.6 million applicants for federal mortgage relief, 14,000 "home buyers" wrongly received tax credits and that in fact, 1,300 of them were living in prison at the time of filing, including 241 serving life sentences. Sixty-seven of the 14,000 received tax credits for the same house, and 87 more potentially fraudulent tax-credit applications were filed by Internal Revenue Service employees. ■ Things That Shouldn't Get Backlogged: (1) California requires that if a sex offender's GPS tagging device signals that he's in a prohibited area, parole agents must immediately respond, but that law was easier to pass than to implement. As of June, according to a San Diego Union-Tribune investigation, the state had fallen about 31,000 responses behind. (2) A July Illinois law requires that all hospital "rape kits" on victims be tested for blood and DNA (in that finding a rapist, and certainly convicting him, without such evidence is often hopelessly difficult). Until now, 80 percent of the rape kits taken in the state had sat, untested. (As TV police dramas emphasize, many rape victims are reluctant to submit to the indignity of swabbing and photographing so soon after being violated and comply only because detectives assure them of the rape kit's importance.)
