THE PREDICTING THE FUTURE ISSUE

There’s no monkey business Promenade pets pass muster with animal control officers BY KEVIN HERRERA I Daily Press Staff Writer THIRD STREET PROMENADE Animal control officers interviewed those who publicly display animals here and found no evidence of abuse or neglect, but suggested the City Council may want to look at passing a law similar to that in Los Angeles requiring street performers and pet adoption agencies to obtain and maintain a permit and pay an annual fee of $150. It was also suggested that the council consider mandating yearly inspections of caregivers’ homes or businesses to ensure that animals used in performances or who are up for adoption are being properly taken care off. Currently City Hall does not specifically regulate animal

acts or exhibitions, however, those who wish to perform on the promenade must obtain a permit and must follow state and local laws concerning the proper care and treatment of animals. The municipal code requires that animals in public be in the custody and control of their owner at all times. The suggestions were made in an information item that was sent to the council earlier this month in response to a request from students at Crossroads School that Santa Monica follow Los Angeles’ lead. During a June 19 Council meeting, several students said they were horrified and heartbroken by the sight of the “Psychic Cats” pulling fortunes from a bowl and the capuchin monkey wearing a hat and vest grabbing dollar

bills from people passing by. Students said the cats must be drugged because no feline can sit still for as long as the performing cats. As for the monkey, they raised concerns about public health, saying the city could be held liable if the monkey were to attack someone. The students said not only is the use of animals in performances a public safety issue, but also sends the wrong message to children that animals are not living creatures, but rather “play toys that can be subjected to human whim.” They also singled out Patricia Stake, who runs Lost Angels, which tries to find homes for cats. “There aren’t a lot of people who exhibit animals in Santa Monica and those who have, we’ve found essentially no cause to be concerned about the welfare of the animals,” said SEE PERFORMERS PAGE 13

Cleanup is Long overdue SoCal surfers nostalgic for a less-polluted era BY NOAKI SCHWARTZ Associated Press Writer

benefits of Internet use in the classroom are questionable. “If a teacher’s on one side of the classroom, kids will put their iPod in the opposite ear,” said Pasha Shafie, who will be a senior at Santa Monica High School. “Or, kids will just hide their cell phones under their desk and text message their friends.” This sort of covert activity continues

LONG BEACH Over seven decades of bodysurfing, Ed Hendricks has mastered the art of catching the perfect wave: Kick as fast as possible, get a deep gulp of air and make like a bullet as the wave arches up and thrusts you along its face toward shore. Most importantly, don’t look for your wave in Long Beach. “I don’t like to go down there because I can see what it was,” said Hendricks, 82, who learned to ride the waves there in the 1930s. The world’s biggest breakwater wiped the “Waikiki of California” out more than 50 years ago and replaced it with a stagnant pond that rarely kicks up any surf — something Hendricks and the Surfrider Foundation have been working to change. The decade-long effort got an unexpected boost this year when the city gained the dubious distinction of having the state’s most bacteria-polluted beaches, prompting embarrassed city officials to fund a study that could be the first step in reconfiguring the breakwater to let in some surf. “Some action needs to be taken to restore our shore,” said Councilman Patrick O’Donnell, who promoted the study. “I was down at the beach at 11 a.m. and it was just me and the lifeguard.” In better days, Long Beach hosted the first national board surfing contest in 1938 but has seen only sporadic surf since Harry Truman was president. In 1949, the federal government completed a 60-foottall, eight mile long wall of sand and granite boulders to protect a Navy base. The breakwater reduced the famed 10foot-high breakers into grayish brown,

TECHNOLOGY 101: Waiting for class to start, SMC student Marie Holguin works on a class assignment as she talks on her iPhone. ‘Sometimes I'll see people whip out their cell phone really fast and do text messaging.

Leave that iPod alone Electronic devices have infiltrated the daily lives of students BY EMILY SKEHAN A special to the Daily Press

Gone are the days of note passing and spitball-shooting. In an age of text mes-

sages, iPods, Sidekicks and Macbooks, teachers have a little more to worry about than old school classroom nuisances. While parents may want their kids to have cell phones on hand in case of emergencies, or to coordinate after-school activities and pick up times, the use of such devices often goes beyond absolute necessity. Similarly, college students might find taking notes on laptops to be more efficient, but when they end up browsing Ebay or chatting with friends online the

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

The handicapped can’t enjoy SM Editor:

Your piece (“Halt who goes there ...,” Aug. 18) was wellintentioned. I thank (The Daily Press) for that. I am simply frustrated that (story subject Donald Rynder) remains in the alley, without any prospects, and the only thing City Hall can talk about is funding a “sensitivity program.” While that is admirable, it hardly addresses the fact that there is no place in the city to help the homeless disabled. Did you know: • OPCC (our flagship homeless center — not a shelter, but somewhere to shower) does not accommodate handicapped people? • There are no homeless shelters in Santa Monica? So no ADA discrimination there ... Santa Monica appears to simply toss aside all people without shelter equally • Did you know why, specifically, Don (Rynder) is a war hero? After he was wounded, he carried another — more wounded — soldier on his back for 43 miles through the hostile Vietnam jungle. He received the Purple Heart and was offered the Congressional Medal of Honor four times! He turned it down each time because they would not also offer it to the wounded soldier he carried through the jungle. I wonder what is to happen to the soldiers that are coming back from Iraq with disabilities. Are we going to ignore them as well? Are we going to let them wither away, stepping over them day in and day out? I’m beginning to think this is the decided public policy and it saddens and angers me. I am writing to (express) my appreciation for what coverage you did provide and my hope that you don’t stop discussing this issue.

We don’t want jets, period! Editor:

As a resident here in Santa Monica, I’m sick of the red tape and loopholes that the FAA and city of Santa Monica have used to continue to abuse the residents that live here. The airport was not designed for jets. Toxic fumes from the jets is killing us. The loud take-offs and landings wake up my baby! There’s a tenfold increase in traffic! We no longer want these jets here! If (city officials and the FAA) can’t put a limit on this problem, then close the airport. That seems to be our only way to stop these ridiculous runway Band-Aids. Listen to the people — we do not want the jets! Stop the red tape and BS.

Police Department’s equestrian unit are still pedaling T-shirts to buy feed for their horses. A few years ago, when budgets were tight, the unit was almost disbanded. A concerned public led by actress June Lockhart demanded that the city “Save the horses.” City Council agreed to partially fund the unit, which provides crowd control at major events such as the Pier Twilight Dance Series and doubles as a highly visible community relations asset for the department. Since then, arrangements have been made to stable the horses at no cost to the city in Will Rogers State Historic Park in Pacific Palisades. Some other expense is supported by the city and, based on the Council agreement, the city only pays for half the horse feed. In addition to caring for their horses and training in their free time, the officers themselves sell “SMPD Cavalry” T-shirts to pay for feed and hay for the remaining six months. With the fiscal pinch of the early 1990s over, a city with nearly a half-billion dollar annual budget can’t afford between $8,000 and $10,000 in horse feed? There’s no reason now why these sworn men and women should have to sell T-shirts and beg for public donations in their off-duty hours to partially support an equestrian unit that serves this city very well. It’s about time City Council appropriated some funding from this year’s discretionary budget to feed SMPD’s horses for the rest of this fiscal year. Hopefully, next year’s city budget will include sufficient funding to fully support this vital public safety unit.

Kaddish was recited, flowers were thrown into the ocean and a SMPD Harbor Patrol boat ferried her ashes to sea. A department-hosted reception followed. “She was a member of our family,” was heard many times. At a time when most people think of the police as law enforcers, citation writers or community servants, that weekend the men and women of the Santa Monica Police Department demonstrated that they are an extraordinarily compassionate and caring group of people. Few other police departments would spend hundreds of hours distributing flyers and searching for a missing resident. And, what police department would arrange a remembrance for an elderly lady who was born in Paris, France; survived the holocaust; emigrated to this country and volunteered for the local police? On this Labor Day, I’m proud to be a member of the SMPD family.

As a SMPD volunteer, I was in Culver City last Saturday morning to hand out “missing persons” flyers. The department has been looking for Alicia Medina, 52, who walked out of her Marine Street home on July 2 and never returned. Although a Santa Monica resident, Medina shopped and attended church in Culver City. SMPD Volunteer Coordinator Ana Montalvo; two other volunteers; Detectives John Henry and Dave Legerski; Medina’s family members and I handed out flyers for four hours with the hope that someone in that neighborhood might have seen her. The next morning, the SMPD hosted a non-denominational memorial service at the Santa Monica Pier for a former police volunteer. Colette Chanel was an older, single woman who recently passed away of natural causes. She’d been a longtime police volunteer and requested that the department give her a proper sendoff. The two dozen people there included friends, a family member, SMPD volunteers and employees, department

Speaking of City Council — Pam O’Connor has a potty mouth. Five and a half hours into the Aug. 14 meeting, during a discussion of the appeal process, O’Connor began muttering four-letter expletives primarily directed towards fellow Councilperson Kevin McKeown. It was distracting enough that Mayor Richard Bloom called for order. Councilman Ken Genser, whose turn it was to speak, waited until O’Connor settled down and shut up. She’s lucky her rant wasn’t clearly audible on CityTV and on-line. This isn’t the first time O’Connor has run her mouth. Her numerous invectives and rude comments have also been directed at the public, too. It’s now come to the point where people are wondering if the veteran councilwoman is well mentally.

The world is going to hell in a hand-basket expression, is going to hell in a hand-basket, and the grown-ups are busy handing out parking tickets. You’d think we’d have learned by now to differentiate between what a true threat is and what it is not, and yet we continue to major in minors. On April 23, the University of Virginia found itself on high alert after police received reports of a gunman outside an engineering building. Outfitted in black, with his face obscured by a ski mask and brandishing a broken plastic BB gun, the gunman was in fact the lead actor in a skit being filmed for a Japanese 102 class about a mugging on the streets of Tokyo. However, haunted by reports of the shooting one week earlier at Virginia Tech, passersby who caught a glimpse of the gunman were understandably spooked, enough so that several students barricaded themselves in classrooms while others suffered panic attacks. The police (more than two dozen officers showed up with guns drawn), after securing the building and confirming that the students inside were OK, turned their attention to the “gunman” and his three classmates. The students explained that they were filming a skit for a class project and that the ensuing hysteria was due to an unfortunate misunderstanding. Up to this point, the situation was handled commendably. However, after the police ascertained that no true threat was involved, things started to go downhill fast. Police arrested the actor/gunman and charged him with brandishing a firearm. Then there’s the case of high school honor student Allen Lee and his future with the Marine Corps — jeopardized because of an English assignment. Asked to write an essay on any topic without censoring himself, Lee described a violent dream in which he shot people and then “had sex with the dead bodies.” It’s doubtful that he would have written what he did had he not been warned against censoring himself. Yet even though Lee, who had a clean academic and no police record, dismissed the idea as a joke in his essay, the situation quickly deteriorated. Lee found himself under arrest, facing criminal charges for the creative writing assignment. As a result, he was discharged from his contract to enter into the Marine Corps. In both instances, once it was determined that these were good students with no history of trouble and that no true threat was involved,

school officials could have taken appropriate disciplinary actions or reprimands. Instead, both matters were handed over to the police. Most likely, these young people will have criminal records for the rest of their lives. Thus, we find ourselves in the absurd position of innocent people’s lives being destroyed simply for lack of a more sensible approach. Such bureaucracy is predicated on a kind of Catch-22 logic where no one wants to take responsibility for saying “enough is enough” and, as a result, everyone suffers. We see this in the courts with judges who, because they don’t want to risk another Columbine, rule in favor of school zero tolerance policies against drugs and weapons. Unfortunately, many of the students caught in the dragnet of such draconian policies are guilty of nothing more than using their fingers as guns in a make-believe game of cops and robbers. However, no amount of prosecution for thoughtless acts or speech will succeed in making us safer. All it will do is cause us to pre-censor ourselves and become fearful of saying or doing anything that might be misconstrued. Remember when we used to tell jokes at the office? This is yet another alarming sign of our society’s commitment to total conformity and political correctness. And while we focus our time and resources on stamping out creativity, spontaneity and individuality — all the things we valued in the past — the real threats will continue to slip by unnoticed until it’s too late. In one of his classic essays, C.S. Lewis aptly described the absurdity of the mixed messages being sent to our young people. More than 60 years later, his words continue to resonate: All the time — such is the tragi-comedy of our situation — we continue to clamor for those very qualities we are rendering impossible. You can hardly open a periodical without coming across the statement that what our civilization needs is more “drive,” or dynamism, or self-sacrifice, or “creativity.” In a sort of ghastly simplicity we remove the organ and demand the function. We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful.

Desk decorating a difficult chore BY ANNIE FLANZRAICH Associated Press Writer

SEATTLE At the beginning of a job, it’s just a flat surface — bare, untouched, undeveloped. It’s even clean, if you’re lucky. But transforming an empty desk into a visual representation of an employee’s personality and professional competence is not an easy task, say business etiquette experts and environmental psychologists. Every detail can provide an insight — or a distressing revelation — into work ethic and ambition. “You should dress your office with the same kind of attention you dress yourself,” said Some studies show decorative employees are more satisfied at work. According to a survey of 338 workers conducted by Meredith Wells, a professor at Eastern Kentucky University, employees who are able to personalize their desk are happier at their jobs. “If you personalize, you’re going to be more satisfied with your work environment, and the more satisfied with your job you are you’ll have a higher level of well-being,” Wells said. Not all workplaces may agree with that of course. Kaye said she knew of one company that allows employees 13 personal items on their desk at a time. Decorations also must be considerate of others, she said. “Imagine you’re someone else walking into your office and run that simulation through. See what unnerves you or what bothers you,” Kaye said. Picking the wrong candy dish, packing every wall with awards or having an empty bookshelf could estrange colleagues and supervisors alike. Here are some of the experts’ most precarious office ornaments: • THE CANDY DISH:

Sure it looks innocently inviting, that open bowl of primary-colored M&Ms waiting to be munched by a procrastinating employee. But the candy bowl actually can be a strategic accessory. “If you want people in and out, don’t put food on your desk,” said Barbara Pachter, author of “New Rules Work: 79 Etiquette Tips, Tools, and Techniques to Get Ahead and Stay Ahead” (Prentice Hall Press, 2006). “But if you need people to come talk to you, it’s a good way to lure people in.” Still, a candy dish is not always an open invitation. LisaMarie Luccioni, a professor who teaches business etiquette at the University of Cincinnati, said her class had a lively discussion about appropriate candy behavior. “It could cause some potential confusion if someone doesn’t want to share their candy,” said Luccioni, who is also certified image consultant in Ohio. “Someone could say, ‘that woman ate my Hershey’s kisses!"’ • THE BOOKSHELF:

Pachter said bookshelves acquiring dust instead of titles could send a message to supervisors that an employee sees their role as transitional. “We expect places to look like where work

takes place,” Pachter said. She suggests including trade publications or books about topics related to an employee’s field. • THE WALLS:

While a wall full of awards and accolades could testify to an employee’s professionalism and achievements, it could also suggest a pretentious attitude, Luccioni said. She once worked met a woman who covered every bare wall with an award or certificate. But instead of coming off as competent, she came off as intimidating, Luccioni said. “Balance is a key aspect,” Luccioni said. Instead of including every certification and congratulations, Luccioni suggests displaying some key awards, degrees or received thank you notes.

IMAGINE YOU’RE SOMEONE ELSE WALKING INTO YOUR OFFICE AND RUN THAT SIMULATION THROUGH. SEE WHAT UNNERVES YOU OR WHAT BOTHERS YOU." Beverly Kaye, Author of “Love ‘em or Lose ‘em: Getting Good People to Stay”

• PHOTOS:

While a few carefully chosen photos can make someone more approachable, a dozen photos of every cat, dog and second-niece twice removed in your family makes an office cluttered and disjointed. “You want to look like a person who is serious and work gets done here,” Pachter said. “Not someone who is taking family phone calls all day. She said people should consider the message their photo is sending, especially if it involves extreme sports or scanty clothing. “How much do you want people to know about you?” she said. • THE CELL PHONE:

It all depends on your company’s culture. And if you’re not sure what that is, better safe than sorry. Some like Andrew DuBrin, an environmental psychologist and professor emeritus at the Rochester Institute of Technology, said keeping cells phones out in the open is unacceptable. “More and more companies are complaining about the misuse of cell phones,” DuBrin said. “I think it’s good to put that away.” But Kaye says it’s OK to keep cell phones out if your companies allows, and keep personal chatting to a minimum. “I think every company has guidelines and a culture that goes all the way from extreme thou shalt never leave thy cell phone in public to come as you want,” she said.

Vulgar edits linked to state computers By the Associated Press

HONOLULU Profanities, pranks and racist edits to the online encyclopedia Wikipedia have been traced to state-owned computers, according to a new Web service. Some of the erroneous changes made to entries on the site include untrue claims that U.S. Rep. Neil Abercrombie, D-Hawaii, has killed more than 5 million wolves and that Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice died in a Texas bathroom in 2004. Profiles of Sen. Daniel Akaka, DHawaii, and pacifist Mahatma Gandhi were also defaced with vulgar remarks. Wikipedia allows anyone to post, edit or even delete items regardless of expertise and leaves it to other users to catch factual errors and other problems with the posted information. A report in The Honolulu Advertiser said at least 2,800 edits to Wikipedia sites were made by computers with Internet addresses registered to state agencies, including the state Department of Education and the University of Hawaii. The report was based on data from the Web site WikiScanner, which simplifies the process of linking anonymous Wikipedia edits to computers. It’s unclear if state employees made the edits, or if they were made by students in public schools or in the University of Hawaii system. The long list of attacks and vulgarities posted from state computers also targets conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh, professional surfer Andy Irons, former University of Hawaii President Evan Dobelle and the emperor of Japan.

At least 1,662 Wikipedia edits were made from computers corresponding to Internet addresses registered to University of Hawaii computers, according to WikiScanner. Another 1,176 Wikipedia edits were traced to other state computers, including 766 edits made from Department of Education computers. “What you’ve described, expressing vulgarity, probably that would be against our computer use policy,” said Department of Education spokesman Greg Knudsen. “But it would also be pretty hard to enforce something that’s done in that type of (information) exchange.” It’s possible to trace a Wikipedia entry to a state Internet connection, but pinning edits to a particular computer or computer user is difficult because hundreds or even thousands of computers could share an Internet address, said David Lassner, the University of Hawaii’s chief information officer. The school has policies governing acceptable computer use that may have been violated, but contributions to Wikipedia won’t be discouraged as long as they don’t interfere with job duties or violate university rules, he said. “The university would never say to someone, ‘You should never enhance human knowledge while working,"’ he said.

In eight-nation poll, few signal taste for new military missions BY ALAN FRAM Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON People in the U.S., Britain and six other countries showed little taste for stepping up the role their nations’ troops play in overseas crises, but seemed more open to other types of involvement abroad, according to an Associated PressIpsos poll. In each country surveyed, only about one in 10 said they believe their government does not send its military frequently enough to trouble spots. Roughly eight in 10 said their leaders send forces abroad either as often as they should or too frequently, according to the poll, which also sampled attitudes in Canada, South Korea, France, Germany, Italy and Spain. When it came to their country’s role in world affairs in general, however, only in the U.S. and Britain did about half or more say their government was too involved. In the others, at least three of four said their government was either not doing enough or was doing what it should. Every country in the survey has forces in Afghanistan, while the U.S. and Britain have troops in Iraq as well. “Italy is not making enough of an important mark on international poli-

tics,” said Maria Verrone, 46, an architect from Florence, Italy, who was visiting Rome. “We have a strong economy to back us, what are we waiting for?” The survey was conducted in mid- to late May as the war in Iraq was beginning its fourth year and NATO allies were facing a springtime upsurge in violence in Afghanistan. Since then, events have transpired that could have changed some peoples’ views about their countries’ roles in foreign affairs, such as the taking of South Korean hostages in Afghanistan and the ascension of new leaders in Britain and France. “Too much,” said David Champ, 57, a plasterer from Redkey, Ind., as he walked the National Mall in the heart of Washington, D.C. “We’re not the peacekeepers of the world, but a lot of Americans think we are.” In Paris, Louise Cors, 53, said military missions abroad are “a bad idea,” adding, “We have lost a lot of credit in our foreign diplomacy.” In the U.S., Britain and Germany, more than half said their country intervenes militarily too frequently. Elsewhere, more said their government was dispatching troops properly, though Italians were about evenly split between that and saying they are sent too often.

IN THE WASH: The average North American generates between 60 and 150 gallons of wastewater every day, much of it loaded with the synthetic chemicals present in dishwasher and laundry soaps.

Picking environmentally friendly wash detergents Dear EarthTalk: What are the best kinds of dishwasher and laundry soaps to use in consideration of where all the wastewater goes after use?

Jessica Weichert Waterford, CA

THE AVERAGE NORTH AMERICAN PRODUCES BETWEEN

60 and 150 gallons of wastewater every day, much of it a result of washing dishes and clothes. Municipal water treatment facilities do their best to filter out the synthetic chemicals common in most mainstream dishwasher and laundry soaps, but some of these pollutants inevitably get into rivers, lakes and coastal areas, where they can cause a wide range of problems. Perhaps the most worrisome of these pollutants, phosphates, can cause large build-ups of algae and bacteria that rob water bodies of oxygen and thus choke out other life forms. In response to just such a problem occurring in Lakes Ontario and Erie in the late 1960s and early 1970s, the U.S. and Canada signed the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement in 1972. The agreement banned the use of phosphates in laundry detergents and dish soaps used in the region, and resulted in a significant decrease in algae blooms throughout the Great Lakes. Despite the success of the agreement, phosphates and other synthetic chemicals continue to be widely used in laundry and dish soaps throughout the world. Aside from their effect on water bodies, these ingredients also trigger allergies, irritate the skin and eyes and carry other health risks. Fortunately, consumers now have more environmentally friendly choices than ever. Companies such as Seventh Generation, Ecover, Bioshield and Naturally Yours make safer dishwasher and laundry soaps that do not contain phosphates or other harmful synthetic chemicals. Many of these greener options are available at retail stores like Whole

Foods and Wild Oats as well as online from websites like Kokopelli’s Green Market and a host of others. According to Seventh Generation CEO Jeffrey Hollender, consumers interested in doing the right thing for the environment should look at ingredients, not slogans. “Just because a product says it is natural doesn’t mean it is nontoxic,” he says. Environmentally friendly ingredients to look for include grain alcohol, coconut or other plant oils, rosemary and sage. Synthetic ingredients to avoid include butyl cellosolve, petroleum, triclosan and phosphates. It is also best to avoid detergents that employ fragrances, as they can contain chemicals known as phthalates that have been linked to cancer. Although household-cleaning chores can often be accomplished with non-toxic, homemade alternatives — such as water mixed with borax, lemon juice, baking soda, vinegar or washing soda — laundry and automatic dishwashing soaps are not so easily replaced with home concoctions. However, Emily Main, senior editor at The Green Guide, recommends adding one-quarter cup of baking soda or white vinegar to clothes washes to act as a fabric softener, and for stain removal suggests soaking fabrics in water mixed with either borax, lemon juice, hydrogen peroxide or white vinegar. As to home recipes for dishwashing, some hardcore homesteaders recommend trying an equal mix of borax and baking soda, but this is probably best used only in a pinch as the abrasiveness of such a mixture can scratch glassware over time.

Waiting game Land deal blocks plans for Mono Lake development project BY BRENDAN RILEY Associated Press Writer

CARSON CITY, Nev. A battle over a proposed development along the shoreline of Mono Lake has ended with a land purchase by Mammoth Mountain Ski Area aimed at preserving the scenic property on the eastern edge of the Sierra Nevada. The ski resort now wants to trade the 118 acres on the west side of Mono Lake, about 90 miles south of here, for about 20 acres of national forest land it leases at the base of Mammoth Mountain for construction of new ski and lodging facilities. The deal was hailed Wednesday by Geoff McQuilken of the nonprofit Mono Lake Committee, which had fought the development of the Mono Lake property for five years, who said it had threatened to “forever change the rural feel of the west shore” of the lake. Mammoth got the land from Bill Cunningham for $3 million in 2005 but Cunningham exercised an option and got it back. This time, McQuilken said the price was $4 million. Mammoth executives said that under terms of the purchase they couldn’t disclose the price. Cunningham didn’t immediately return a call to his home for comment on the sale of the land along U.S. 395.

“We’re trying to do a good deed, and turn that good deed into something that will assist us in refurbishing our facilities,” said Rusty Gregory, Mammoth’s chief executive officer. “We feel very strongly that the scenic (highway) corridor should be preserved.” Acquiring Cunningham’s land to block construction of up to 30 luxury homes had been a top priority for the Inyo National Forest. Aspen groves, springs and a stream are on the property located along the line where the Sierra Nevada range drops into the Great Basin that stretches through Nevada into Utah. Cunningham has said he also wanted to see the land preserved, but wanted “a fair valuation” of the property. He still owns a small parcel on the edge of the lake, a high desert oddity that’s nearly three times as salty as the ocean. Mono Lake, just east of Yosemite National Park, was designated the nation’s first federal scenic area in 1984. That helped to preserve a major stopover for migratory birds and save an inland sea that was being drained to slake Los Angeles’ thirst. The lake was on a path to destruction after Los Angeles diverted four tributary streams into the Los Angeles Aqueduct in 1941. The move followed a much more publicized water diversion to the south that turned Owens Lake into a dusty plain. The federal scenic designation and subsequent California water rights rulings in 1986 and 1994 helped reverse the decline, and the lake is expected to reach what state and federal authorities set as an “environmentally sustainable” level by 2014, still well shy of its pre-diversion level.

Scientists seek explanation for underweight gray whales BY DAN JOLING Associated Press Writer

ANCHORAGE, Alaska Researchers off Mexico’s Pacific coast have observed what might be a case of global warming’s effects in the far north: gray whales returning to calving grounds malnourished. Where layers of fat should have covered whales’ spines last winter, researchers saw vertebrae sticking out. They spotted other signs of malnutrition — depressions around the blowholes and head, and protruding shoulder blades — that may indicate declining health. At least 10 percent of gray whales returning to Laguna San Ignacio, one of four main calving and breeding lagoons off Baja California, Mexico, showed signs of being underfed, said Steve Swartz, a National Marine Fisheries Service whale expert based in Silver Spring, Md. Researchers are trying to find out if it’s a warning sign that climate change in the North Pacific is affecting the tiny crustaceans the whales suck up from the ocean floor, and if switching to alternative prey will affect their well-being. “They may have to work harder for less,” Swartz said. “There are all kinds of things we’re thinking about, trying to piece the puzzle together.” The eastern population of Pacific gray whales are a marine mammal success story. Nearly wiped out by hunting by the early 1900s, they’re the only marine mammal to

be delisted from Endangered Species Act protections. They breed in warm, protected lagoons off Mexico’s coast but rely on the cold, bountiful waters off Alaska for feeding each summer. However, traditional feeding areas in the Bering and Chukchi seas have been disrupted by ecosystem changes associated with Arctic warming. Swartz say that’s a possible reason for physical changes observed last winter. It may also be a factor, Swartz said, in a decline of calf production. Other whale experts are not sure there’s anything out of the ordinary. Wayne Perryman, who oversees the annual gray whale census for NOAA Fisheries, said observations by veteran researchers in the breeding lagoons cannot be discounted. However, “There’s no way of knowing if what they saw was a representative sample of the population,” Perryman said. It’s natural for whales to be thin, especially for lactating females, because they fast for months at a time on their journeys. And just because they’re slim, it doesn’t mean their health is at risk, he said. “There’s kind of a natural range of skinny,” he said. But like other gray whale researchers, he believes the observations are worth following up. As an ocean sentinel reflecting the health of the Pacific Ocean, gray whales are uniquely qualified, he said. Their migrations may take them on a 10,000-mile round trip.

COMMUNITYPROFILES CHON LEE

Shakespearean summer BY MELODY HANATANI I Daily Press Staff Writer WILMONT As the school year begins this week, the once empty hallways and classrooms will be buzzing with stories of summer break activities, from trips to another country to personal enrichment programs at camp to the seemingly endless hours in school. In the teacher’s lounge at Lincoln Middle School, the story of Chon Lee’s summer might not be much of a departure from his student’s — the eighth grade teacher spent five weeks in England for professional development, participating in a seminar on Shakespearean plays. It was time for a teacher to go back to summer school. The 29-year-old English teacher — a product of the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District — received a grant along with 24 other teachers across the country through the National Endowment for the Humanities to study Shakespeare’s works in England with the Royal Shakespeare Company. The program, called “Shakespeare Enacting the Text” is conducted by a college professor every year, this year that honor was given to one of the most renowned Shakespeare scholars in the world, Dr. Jay Halio from the University of Delaware. “The objective is for teachers of all different walks (of life) who have a passion for Shakespeare to come together and enrich themselves, immerse themselves in Shakespeare’s language and text and help us be able to bring back Shakespeare into the classroom,” Lee said. Spending a summer in England, the birthplace of the playwright who gave Lee direction in life was a dream come true. It was the power in Shakespeare’s words and the emotion of a high school teacher that ultimately pushed Lee to pursue comparative literature in college. Lee graduated from the University of California, Irvine in 2000 with a double major bachelor’s degree in English and comparative lit.

Lee vividly remembers the moment that sparked his passion for Shakespeare’s work — it was during his junior year at Malibu High School and his English teacher was wrapping up a discussion about “King Lear,” reading the last scene from the play after Cordelia, Lear’s youngest daughter, had died. The teacher talks about Lear’s speech on regrets, his relationship with Cordelia, when she breaks down in tears. The students sat back stunned as the teacher regained her composure and continued on with the discussion. “From that moment for me at least, it hit home,” Lee said. “This is how powerful language could be.” Shakespeare has since become a part of Lee’s life and career as he has sought to introduce the author’s works at an earlier age to students, which is part of the reason why he participated in the summer seminar. After kicking off their seminar at the University of Delaware, the teachers embarked to England in late June, traveling throughout the country to Stratford, Oxford and London. Their days were filled with intensive voice and acting lessons with performers of the Royal Shakespeare Company, enlightening roundtable discussions with British professors and Shakespearean experts and eye-opening visits to some of England’s most famous playhouses, including the Globe Theater in London. In total, the teachers watched more than 12 plays. While Shakespeare’s plays are usually not introduced until high school in the United States, students in England are already learning sonnets in the third grade, Lee said. “The language is so accessible,” Lee said. “It’s intimidating at first, but once kids get used to it, it becomes more accessible — they make that connection.” The seminar was conducted through a performancebased approach, requiring the teachers to take vocal training lessons for an hour and a half a day and memorize sonnets and monologues. It’s the way Shakespeare’s plays were meant

to be respected and the way in which they will be studied in Lee’s class this year. “Kids cannot be sitting at a desk,” he said. “They have to get up, be lively about it and be enthusiastic and through that enthusiasm and spirit, help bring the words to life.” The Santa Monica-Malibu Education Foundation recently awarded Lee a $1,500 grant to purchase costumes and props for his class this year. Because the themes are so relevant in Shakespeare’s plays, they’re experienced differently at the middle school level than at the high school level, said Lincoln Principal Tristan Komlos. “He is certainly an innovative and creative teacher,” Komlos said. “He’s constantly looking for ways to engage all of his students, not only in the English classes, but supporting our students learning English as a second language.” melodyh@smdp.com

Restoring waves to area city FROM LONG BEACH PAGE 3 listless rippl es that crawl up the sand and retreat just as pitifully. Only on rare days can a swell sneak through a small opening in the breakwater to create rideable waves. The enclosure has also trapped urban debris that floats down the Los Angeles River and dumps into Long Beach harbor. The first time Robert Palmer took his 7-year-old daughter to the beach she emerged from the murky water with plastic bags wrapped around her legs. “You can walk out to the water here, be knee deep and you can’t see your toes,” Palmer said. Over time Long Beach went from seaside resort to thriving port town. The silhouette of giant cranes and cargo containers are now fixtures in its skyline. In the mid-1990s the Navy moved to San Diego but left the breakwater behind. Changing any part of the federally owned rock wall, however, will be tough. It helps protect one of the country’s busiest ports, as well as housing and businesses that have grown up near the beach. Orange garabaldi fish thrive near the breakwater along with lobster, birds, sea lions and other animals. “The biggest concern for us is if it created all these waves in here and made it difficult to move cargo all the time _ it would be a disaster for us,” said Art Wong, a spokesman for the Port of Long Beach, which reported annual revenue of $400 million to $450 million. The initial $100,000 study is expected to begin within the next few months to determine, among other things, if changing the breakwater would restore the ecosystem and improve water quality by opening up the flow of water. More in-depth studies could eventually determine the cost and whether parts of the breakwater could be removed or partly knocked down. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, a Republican who represents part of Long Beach and bills himself as the surfing congressman, is doubtful the breakwater will ever be changed unless it would dramatically improve the water. “I don’t think it will because the expense of it is enormous _ we’re talking hundreds of millions of dollars,” he said. And even if they are successful, Tracy Egoscue, a Long Beach resident who heads a nonprofit group working to ensure clean water in Santa Monica Bay, said it would be unrealistic to expect a quick fix to “the toxic soup we’ve all created.” Egoscue, the executive director of the Santa Monica BayKeeper, believes the focus should be cleaning up the Los Angeles River upstream. “Dilution is not the solution,” she said. “If you open up the ocean and push the problems out, you’re just pushing the problem out.” On a recent summer day the city’s beaches and parking lots were largely empty in stark contrast to other Southern California beach cities famous for their bluishgreen waters and classic curls. Just south, in the selfdubbed “Surf City” of Huntington Beach, idling cars waited for coveted spaces. Members of the Long Beach chapter of the Surfrider Foundation realize 10-foot waves will never roll back into town, but bringing cleaner waters and an occasional set of breakers would be just fine. “Best case scenario another 10 years,” said the octogenarian Hendricks. “At least I’d be able to be here to watch it. I might not be able to walk but they could roll me into the ocean and away I’d go.”

BUTT SERIOUSLY

Animal acts follow rules FROM PERFORMERS PAGE1 Donn Umber, manager of the Santa Monica Animal Shelter, who prepared the report. Umber said animal control officers interviewed Stake, Anthony Barbato, who operates Monk-N-Me, and Leonid Vaisman, who performs with the “Psychic Cats.” In regards to Stake, Umber said animal control has received periodic calls regarding her cats sitting in cages. They have not been found to be improperly cared for while being displayed. Other complaints have alleged that Stake charges arbitrary adoption fees, requests cash payments, fails to provide receipts, selects adopters based on their ability to give a large donation and that she has released unspayed or unneutered cats to adopters. Those allegations have not been substantiated, Umber said. Stake was issued an order in 2002 to correct sub-standard conditions in her home when inspectors visited and found that a total of 11 cats and kittens, some of which were in small carriers, were being housed in a small apartment that had inadequate ventilation. That was fixed and no further complaints have since been received. In an interview with Stake, Umber said she was asked where she keeps animals waiting to be adopted. She said they were fostered by volunteers. When asked if animal control staff could speak to or visit any of her foster volunteers, Stake allegedly said, “none would be willing to go along with that.” When asked what that meant, State said the she has about 30 to 40 active volunteers who are all busy professionals and that because the FBI informed her that animal control staff has talked to the Animal Liberation Front, a extreme animal rights group, none of her volunteers would want to be contacted or would permit home inspections. Umber said Animal control has never communicated with the ALF. Stake’s organization has not filed an application to become a legal non-profit. Umber said that information has been given to the IRS. In an interview in June, Stake said she has been trying to file for non-profit status, but has been harassed by animal rights extremist and has been forced to spend most of her time defending her organization. Stake claims she doesn’t need to be a non profit to operate. She does accept donations, but only in small amounts, and all of that money goes toward feeding the animals and making sure they are healthy and ready for

adoption, she said. In the case of the monkey, Umber said Barbato of Monk-N-Me has valid permits required by the Department of Fish and Game to own or possess capuchin monkeys. Umber said Barbato has been interviewed several times by animal control and the monkeys have always been found by officers to be treated well and in good condition. While people may have concerns about the humanness of a primate in captivity being used for public amusement, Umber said there is no evidence that the monkey is being mistreated. Barbato told Umber that he has homebred his monkeys and that the mother of those that currently perform remains in good health at the age of 32. Sgt. Alonzo Real of the Los Angeles County Animal Care and Control told city staff that annual inspections of Barbato’s home and his animals have always resulted in an “A” rating. As for the “Psychic Cats,” Umber said officers have always found the cats to be alert and well cared for. While cats that willingly perch calmly on a table top in the midst of a crowd are rare. Vaisman told Umber that he adopts his cats from animal shelters when they are young and conditions them to perform using only food rewards and much patience. Some have complained about Vaisman’s “dirty appearance and rude demeanor,” and therefore must mistreat his animals. Umber said Vaisman’s act involved adopting the appearance and persona of a gruff Gypsy, but he has always been polite and spoken willingly with staff. He also stated that he rotates his cats each time he performs from among the six he owns, and that he limits the time of his performances to no more than four hours per evening. Because of his deteriorating health, Vaisman only performs once or twice a month. The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals does recommend that local agencies establish a permit process to enable over sight of such activities. “A simple low-cost or no-cost permit process for legitimate animal adoption organizations that seek safe outdoor locations for mobile adoption events would enable city staff to verify the non-profit status of applicants,” Umber said. “This would restrict the ability of those who take advantage of the public’s sympathy for animals from profiting in the city of Santa Monica.” Umber said the council has not set a date as of yet to discuss the recommendations. kevinh@smdp.com

E-HELP: A SMC student works on a class assignment while utlizing an iPhone last week.

Electronic gear at home in class FROM DEVICES PAGE 3 despite strict district policies against electronics in the classroom. According to Santa Monica Malibu Unified School District policy, students in grades K through 8 are not permitted to possess or use electronic signaling devices unless they have prior consent from the principal, documentation from a physician, or during a declared state of emergency. High school policies are slightly more permissive, as students are allowed to possess cell phones and similar devices, but must keep them off during school hours. “We don’t want students jumping up to answer their phones during class,” said Sally Chou, Chief Academic Officer, “it really causes a disruption.” However, Chou acknowledged that sometimes exceptions to the rules do occur. “It can depend on the situation,” she said, “you could have a student who is waiting for a call because they have an ill mother — you have to be sensitive to that sort of thing.” At Samohi, teachers have the authority to confiscate any phones that ring or are used during class, and either keep the device until the end of the period or hand it over to the student’s counselor to be returned the next day. “I think when kids’ phones are ringing or when they’re messing with their Sidekicks or something it can be distracting. Teachers definitely don’t like it happening in their classrooms,” said Shafie. At Santa Monica College, the electronic etiquette isn’t so stringently defined. “You have more freedom with it here than in high school,” said SMC student Deborah Williams, who keeps her cell phone on in class. According to Jocelyn Chong, who is Dean of Information Technology at SMC, there is no official policy to restrict students from using laptops during class, and

it is up to the discretion of each professor whether or not students may have open computers in class.

I THINK WHEN KIDS’ PHONES ARE RINGING OR WHEN THEY’RE MESSING WITH THEIR SIDEKICKS OR SOMETHING IT CAN BE DISTRACTING. TEACHERS DEFINITELY DON’T LIKE IT HAPPENING IN THEIR CLASSROOMS.” Pasha Shafie Senior at Santa Monica High School

“We have certain areas on campus that are enabled for wireless access,” said Chong, “and we recommend students use their laptops in these designated areas. “Some professors do allow students to take notes on their computers in class, and we do not block wireless access in classrooms.” Incoming freshman Alysse Cushing hadn’t gotten around to buying a laptop for school yet, but plans to use one for scheduling, note-taking and assignments. “I think you should have a laptop for most classes,” she said, “it would just be easier to organize and have better control over yourself.” news@smdp.com

upheld an earlier judgment and ordered him to begin serving a five-year prison term. He had been out on bail since April 2006. Khan was sentenced to prison in the poaching of a rare buck in a desert wildlife preserve in 1998.

He has denied any involvement in the incident. Khan, the eldest son of famous Bollywood scriptwriter Salim Khan, became a household name with his second film, “Maine Pyar Kiya (I Have Loved),” in 1989, followed

by one of the biggest hits of the 1990s, “Hum Aapke Hain Kaun (What Am I to You).” His recent movies include the romantic film “Marigold” and comic caper “Partner.” ASSOCIATED PRESS

LACHEY GETS NEW GIG “Dancing with the Stars” champion DREW LACHEY is moving to the role of host for another talent contest, “Dance War: Bruno vs. Carrie Ann.” Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba, judges for ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars,” will be featured in the six-week series airing later this season, the network announced. Open auditions will be held this month in New York, Nashville and the Los Angeles area for amateur performers who can dance and sing. The contestants will work with Tonioli and Inaba to form “the ultimate dance team.” AP

Posh to guest on ABC’s ‘Ugly Betty’ VICTORIA BECKHAM, now living in Los Angeles, is going Hollywood. Despite her recent denials about being interested in an acting career, Beckham, aka Posh Spice, is taking a first step by playing herself on an episode of the ABC comedy “Ugly Betty” this coming TV season. In announcing the casting Thursday, the network said Beckham will play a celebrity bridesmaid at the wedding of Wilhelmina Slater (Vanessa Williams) and publisher Bradford Meade (Alan Dale).

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

Happy Birthday! Expect surprises this year. You’ll learn how centered, strong and responsible you can be. Don’t hesitate to trust yourself and your strength. Often you take an independent road. Have faith in your abilities. If you are single, you might want to meet Ms. or Mr. Right, and most likely you will. If you are attached, you’ll discover how important it is to agree to disagree. Still, the heat of romance will blaze heavily in 2008. GEMINI pushes you into the limelight.

Posh moved from England to L.A. in July after her soccer-star husband, David, signed a fiveyear contract to play for the Galaxy of Major League Soccer. At the time, she denied that she had aspirations for an acting career. She’s slated to take part in a Spice Girls reunion tour beginning in December, and has launched her own fashion label called dVb and her own line of fragrances. “Ugly Betty” returns for its second season on Sept. 27.

Greet spontaneity, Sagittarius

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

★★★★ Get past stumbling blocks. Though you are a true believer in the power of conversation, you might let off steam in a tirade as opposed to a good walk or a solution-finding talk. Tonight: Listen well.

★★★★★ If you disagree with someone, imagine what it must be like to be the other person. If you make an effort to walk in someone else’s shoes, you might understand a lot more. Share more of this newly gained perspective. Tonight: Too much to do!

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

f

★★★ You might be horrified by recent expenditures. A friend could surprise you with a request that you cannot say no to. Tonight: If someone wants something so bad, let him or her make it happen.

★★★★ Clearly the time has come to step back. Your perspective could change radically if you watch how someone else handles a problem. Be willing to pitch in financially if need be. Tonight: A partner becomes your highest priority.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

★★★★ You have your hands full and might wake up with a sinking feeling. You can choose to let go of it. Zoom in and go for what you want. People might oppose you, but some people support you. You draw reactions! Tonight: Do what you want.

★★★★ You keep making a positive effort, but whatever you do seems to diffuse in many different directions. A partner or close associate might feel challenged by your optimism. Be ready for plans to go up in the air. Tonight: Greet spontaneity with a smile.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

★★ Words could hurt your feelings, but they might not have been intended to. Let go of a grievance, understanding that everyone comes from a different perspective. If you are feeling overworked or overextended, pull back. Tonight: Make it an early night.

★★★★ Because you make that extra effort, you assume that others would feel good about your intentions. Everyone is so emotional that keeping a sense of anchoring is close to impossible. Don’t take in others’ comments. Tonight: Easy does it.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

★★★★ Aim for more of what you want. Friends and associates mean well as they push you in a certain direction. But no one can really push you — only you can. Nothing is written in stone. Tonight: Hang out with pals.

★★★★ Your sense of fun emerges, yet a risk is strictly a no-no. Understand your limits. A child might act up out of the blue. How much is too much? Perhaps being aware of these issues is enough for now. Tonight: Friends join in. Act as if there is only now.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

★★★ The pressure to perform or to do your very best tumbles on you, whether you like it or not. You will step up to the plate no matter how burdensome the responsibility might be. Ask for help if need be. Tonight: Check in with an older friend or relative.

★★★ You could throw quite a tantrum as you try to decide how much is enough. Listen to your inner voice rather than feedback, and you will come up with a more reasonable judgment. Tonight: Don’t wander too far from home.

By John Forgetta & L.A. Rose

Š 2006 Janric Enterprises Dist. by Creators Syndicate Inc.

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

Strange Brew

By John Deering

CHUCK

SHEPARD

â?š Grrlzz With Attitude: (1) A 12year-old girl was sentenced in Perth, Australia, in July to two months' detention for stealing a car and leading police on a harrowing high-speed chase. According to court records, she has already been convicted of more than 60 crimes. (2) A 7year-old named Alisha told reporters in Reidsville, N.C., in August that she was just being a good daughter when she challenged the man who tried to rob her mom (a convenience store clerk). "I was pushing on him and telling him to 'back away, back away, man.'" (Her aggressiveness foiled the robbery, but the man got away. Said Alisha, "He should be locked up by his gills and towed to the police.") â?š In July, a federal appeals court ruled that no one could challenge President Bush's order permitting warrantless eavesdropping on phone calls into and out of the United States, unless it was a person actually eavesdropped on. However, according to law professors cited by the Los Angeles Times, anyone who could prove that would be barred under other national security laws from revealing that fact in public.
