THE FIRE UP THE GRILL ISSUE

Superintendent Lyon talks experience, future BY ASHLEY ARCHIBALD Daily Press Staff Writer

SMMUSD HDQTRS Sandra Lyon took over the top position in the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District in May 2011.

Since, the district has weathered a hardfought battle to fundamentally alter the method of fundraising in the schools, taken on violence and racial conflict that erupted at Santa Monica High School and began the complicated process of working with a

group of Malibu education advocates trying to secede from the union. That’s on top of the “normal” problems facing public education, primarily the state financial crisis that’s resulted in a 20 percent decrease in the amount of funding available

HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL

Samohi Vikings coast to win over Redondo Union BY DANIEL ARCHULETA Managing Editor

CORSAIR FIELD It didn’t take long for Santa Monica football to prove that this year’s team has a different feel than years past. Samohi rode a balanced attack that saw the Vikings score on the ground, through the air and even on defense during a 42-21 season-opening win over Redondo Union on Friday at Santa Monica College. Seemingly gone is Samohi’s run-first offense and in its place is a high-powered passing game led by senior wide receiver Sebastian LaRue and new quarterback Ryan Barbarin. “It felt like the old days,” Barbarin said of reuniting with his former Pop Warner teammate LaRue. “It was good to finally get out here and play.” Barbarin, who transferred to Samohi

to SMMUSD, leaving a $5 million budget deficit that could balloon to $10 million if neither of the two tax increases on the November ballot make it past voters. Add to that a newly-launched cam- LYON paign calling on local voters to accept a $385 million bond measure to help repair aging school facilities on campuses that are looking back on their 100th birthdays, and you have quite a year. Despite those dustups, Lyon is looking steadfastly forward. At the convocation that launched the new school year, she announced to every district employee that this would be a time to focus on collaboration and efficiency. She plans to use her second year to address the persistent achievement gap between minority students and their white and Asian counterparts, and put the district in a position to succeed as the federal government pushes to standardize tests throughout the nation. The Daily Press sat down with Lyon to discuss her take on the year behind her, and what promises to be an eventful one to come. Daily Press: So how would you grade your performance in your first year? Sandra Lyon: I’m going to give myself a B. I think there were things that I didn’t expect in terms of some community expectations and how my time was used that, had I planned better, I might have been more effective. So I think this year we’re setting up some scheduling and ways to meet with people so that I can be out in the community and meet with staff. I think that will help me be more effective.

St. Monica tops Malibu, 20-12 CORSAIR FIELD St. Monica football evened its record at 1-1 on Saturday at Santa Monica College with a 20-12 win over Malibu. Malibu falls to 0-1 this season with the loss. Next for St. Monica is a road game at Mary Star of the Sea on Friday at 7 p.m. The game will be played at Daniels Field.

Students face rocky path to graduation CHRISTINA HOAG Associated Press

LOS ANGELES With state budget cuts forcing California’s public universities to shrink their course offerings, earning a bachelor’s

degree in four years is becoming even more difficult for many students. “One winter quarter, there were so few classes, I could only get three out of five offered,” said David Allison, a senior at California State University San Bernardino.

“CSU is no longer a four-year institution. It’s more like a five- or six-year institution.” As the fall semester gets under way, students at the University of California, the California State University and California Community Colleges are feeling the pinch of

$2.5 billion in cuts to the state’s public higher education budget over the past three years. They’re taking on more jobs and loans to SEE STUDENTS PAGE 12

‘Food hubs’ connect school districts with local farmers GOSIA WOZNIACKA Associated Press

FRESNO, Calif. The school district in Turlock, surrounded by fields and orchards in one of the nation’s richest agricultural regions, used to get much of the produce it served to students from national distributors who shipped fruits and vegetables from outside California. But, starting in August, student meals have featured apples, peaches, nectarines, plums and oranges from farms only a few miles away — with the help of a new online company that connects local farmers with school districts. California-based Ag Link allows school districts to communicate with nearby farmers and buy their produce with the click of a mouse. It’s helping the Turlock district and others meet new federal rules requiring more fruits and vegetables in school cafeterias to help prevent childhood obesity. “The quality and selection we’re seeing coming right from the farms is incredible,” said Scott Soiseth, director of child nutrition for the Turlock Unified School District. “Children get to eat the product that’s picked that same morning.” The new rules require among other things that school provide students at least a half cup of either a fruit or vegetable during lunch and at least a half cup of fruit during breakfast. And they must be served a wider variety of fresh produce every week, including leafy greens and red-orange vegetables. Online companies, cooperatives and organizations helping connect local farmers and buyers have cropped up in recent years. Now these so-called food hubs are facilitating relationships between farmers and school districts. The Agriculture and Land-Based Training Association, a non-profit cooperative that trains new organic farmers in Salinas, Calif., is working with the Santa

Cruz City Schools to coordinate orders and deliver produce. The district, with 13,000 students, purchases more than half of its produce from local farms. In Vermont, a company called Green Mountain Farm Direct distributes a list of products, coordinates orders and delivers produce to half a dozen schools and other institutions. And Oregon-based FoodHub, an online networking and marketing platform that connects food producers, buyers, and suppliers in Oregon, California, Washington, Alaska, Montana and Idaho, has been increasingly working with school districts looking to buy local, said director Amanda Oborne. “School food directors are under water in figuring out what they have to do to keep up with the new federal guidelines,” she said. FoodHub currently works with 181 schools and districts, including some districts with as many as 80 schools. “A lot of schools don’t have contacts with farmers. They’re a few miles away from each other and would never know they are so close. So having a directory and a networking tool at their fingertips is a huge help,” Oborne said. Ag Link, which also runs an e-commerce platform, was launched this month by a husband and wife team, Rob and Jana Nairn of Ballico in Merced County. Both have degrees in agri-business marketing. A year ago, Jana Nairn and a school dietitian started consulting with school districts on how to improve menus and comply with the new regulations. The number one question schools asked was how to find sources of fresh, local produce. Ag Link provided an answer. “There’s all this produce here in our region, but we’re still serving imported apples and bananas year round,” Nairn said. SEE FOOD PAGE 13

Save these gems Editor:

I really hope Chez Jay stays with its oasis of times remembered and camaraderie to share or relax and “keep it real” atmosphere. It’s our spot every May 5 to gather a group of friends since the passing of our friend, Joy, 9 years ago. She wanted us to stay together for her son, Chance. We gather from Santa Monica, West Los Angeles, Malibu, Calabasas and are graciously welcomed and treated to a leisurely feast. We share stories and pictures. It’s a standing invitation to anyone who knew her and over the years we have made Chez Jay “Chez Joy” for that night. I look forward to the new surrounding park and atmosphere and I hope everything will be done to incorporate the little slice of history and well-being that is Chez Jay into the evolving area. Thank you for your consideration! Then there is the main post office. It remains my goto place for mailing and I do go out of my way just to go there. I can go to the self-service area and take care of packages to family and friends. I enjoy buying stamps with the original artwork. I mail newspaper clippings to my dad in Maine and share a bit of local news. Nothing is the same as receiving a hands-on letter; it’s personal and connected in a way electronics cannot be. This location is ideal and I respectfully appeal to the Congress to find a way to release the stranglehold on the U.S. Postal Service to allow them to manage the deficit in a reasonable manner. Please!

THE UNITED STATES POSTAL SERVICE (USPS)

plans to close the “old” Santa Monica post office on Fifth Street at Arizona Avenue sometime this fall. Services will be relocated to the present carrier annex at 1653 Seventh St., between Colorado Avenue and Olympic Boulevard. The USPS will close or consolidate a number of postal facilities nationally to help stem billions of dollars in red ink annually resulting from declines in mail volume and revenue. Sounds like a government organization: reduce losses resulting from declining sales by making it more difficult and inconvenient to access services. The replacement post office is in the middle of no man’s land, across from the Big Blue Bus yard, near OPCC’s Access Center and SAMOSHEL homeless shelter. Many locals are upset that the beautiful and iconic 1937 Public Works Administration Moderne structure will be closed and possibly demolished. Although an exact date for closure hasn’t been announced, the USPS had decided to sell the property at 1248 Fifth St. in the heart of Downtown. It has already retained a commercial realtor to handle the sale. A much smaller property (TJ Maxx) directly behind the post office at 1251 Fourth St. is currently on the market for $17,760,000. As long as it is federal property, it’s unlikely that attempts to save the building as a Santa Monica landmark will lead to its preservation. However, if the building is declared a local landmark when it is sold, efforts to force the new owner to preserve the facade and key interior features could be more successful. EPSTEINS WIN LAWSUIT

Regular readers of this column will be familiar with Epstein vs. the city of Santa Monica. The lawsuit concerned how poorly City Hall handled appeals of parking citations. Stanley and Harriet Epstein claimed City Hall deliberately deprived appellants of their rights by not providing clear and specific written reasons for not dismissing contested parking citations. They claimed this violated two provisions of California Vehicle Code (CVC) Section 40215, which describes rights and procedures when challenging a parking citation. City Hall and co-defendants, including a processing sub-contractor — the Santa Monica Parking Violations Bureau (PVB) run by ACS State and Local Solutions, a Xerox Company — claimed they provided proper notice to appellants via a form response that said, in most cases, only that, “The citation is valid.” In early 2011, the Epsteins pleaded with City Hall for three months to amend its handling of parking ticket appeals. In late May, City Hall even issued a press release announcing a raft of improvements to its citation appeals process in the interest of “good customer service,” but continued to send notices to appellants that they were guilty because, well, they were guilty. Fed up, the Epsteins filed a class-action

lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court in June 2011, challenging City Hall’s and ACS’ past handling of these appeals. Negotiations between the parties finally broke down in January after City Hall reneged on its own attorney’s agreement to run public notice in City Hall’s Seascape advising wronged appellants that they could have their cases reopened. The Epsteins’ attorney, Eric J. Benink, notified City Hall that the “parking enforcement class action” will “continue because of the city’s decision to keep from the public knowledge of the basic facts of staff wrongdoing for 30 months.” Inexplicably, on Feb. 28, city officials prematurely announced a full settlement in the case, even though many issues hadn’t been agreed to. So, the suit and negotiations dragged on anyway. Last Tuesday night, the City Council finally approved terms for a settlement. “More than 20,000 motorists will gain the right to have their contested parking tickets reconsidered under the settlement,” Stanley Epstein said. “Our litigation forces Santa Monica to restore rights to drivers whose statutory rights were violated and to comply with state law hereafter.” City Hall and ACS, now Xerox, have agreed to provide individuals who unsuccessfully contested parking citations from January 2009 through May 2012 with notice and an opportunity to seek lawful explanations of their initial review or copies of their administrative hearing results. City Hall will waive the statute of limitations and these individuals may then request either a new hearing or an appeal to the Superior Court. Should the citation be canceled following the new procedures, City Hall will refund fines paid. The full settlement agreement can be viewed on the website of the plaintiffs’ attorney, www.kkbslaw.com. Hooray for the Epsteins! They proved that you can beat City Hall!

RIGHT ON TARGET

Last Monday afternoon, I rode Big Blue into Westwood Village, caught a movie and checked out the new City Target, which is a compact version of Target’s sprawling suburban stores. Loved the merchandise, layout, accommodating staff and quick checkout. I spent $50 on basics — bath towels, pillowcases, socks and gym shorts. Good deal, especially with the $1 round trip bus fare. I even saved a few cents on sales tax. A similar urban Target was proposed for Fifth Street and Santa Monica Boulevard in 2001, but planning staff, labor unions and hyped-up concerns about traffic doomed the project from the start. The City Council voted 5-2 to finally kill the project, thus making affordable shopping in Santa Monica even more scarce. The site is now a cluster of boring, five-floorhigh condominium buildings with the usual small, street-level shops — and traffic. Santa Monica’s loss is Westwood’s and my gain.

last year. He was 45. I was looking forward to being crazy with you in London, Steve, you will be missed my friend. The London Paralympic Games are the largest ever, featuring more than 4,200 athletes from 166 countries who will compete in 20 sports, with coverage in the U.S. never before seen. My goal with this column is to hopefully expose more people to the beauty of the Paralympic Games and to encourage more networks to cover footage of the athletes competing. Then, and only then, can we begin to tear down the stereotypes and show these atheletes the respect they deserve. U.S. Paralympics will provide 10 dailyhighlight packages via its U.S. Paralympics YouTube channel. In addition to the online content, NBC Sports Network (NBCSN) will air one-hour highlight shows on Sept. 4, 5, 6 and 11 at 7 p.m. EDT. Following the Paralympic Games, on Sept. 16, NBC will broadcast a 90-minute special from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. EDT. All NBC and NBC Sports Network Paralympic highlight shows and specials will re-air on Universal Sports Network and UniversalSports.com. The International Paralympic Committee will also live-stream more than 780 hours of sports at www.paralympic.org, including daily coverage of swimming and wheelchair basketball, while a fourth channel will cover a wider range of sports. A fifth channel will broadcast a mixture of sports with Spanish commentary. So please tune in and show your support. I gaurantee the emotions will be just as palpable, the competition just as fierce and the triumphs just as uplifting as those “other” games.

and find yourself calculating how many days until your next gold medal fix? Well, you’re in luck. The Olympic torch has been lit once more in London, this time for the 2012 Paralympic Games. The Opening Ceremony was held on Aug. 29 and the games end on Sept. 9. I’m in London, covering the games for the Daily Press. I first became interested in handicap sports (now called adaptive sports) after I saw a one-legged skier at Snowbird, Utah in the mid 1980s. Back in Los Angeles, I found a handicap ski program at Mountain High in Southern California and volunteered to help work the program. During the summer I sought out other handicap sports (basketball, rugby, water skiing), finding myself fascinated with the world of handicap athletes. Every athlete and sport has a different complexity to it that is as numerous as there is athletes. Because I have taught and supported athletes with challenges, I find the Paralympics far more interesting than the Olympics. I have attended the Paralympics in Atlanta, Sydney, Athens, Salt Lake City (yes there is winter Paralympics also) Beijing, and now London to watch the games and cheer for the athletes. Of course I always want my friends and the USA to win medals, which gets tougher with every four years. The Paralympics is a fierce and highly completive world event. These athletes representing their countries go through grueling years of conditioning and qualifications to get to the games, and hopefully win medals — gold preferably. This trip to the London Paralympic games is dedicated to my friend Steve Ferguson, who was my Beijing Paralympic sidekick. We did the Paralympics and had a blast! Steve died from cancer in August of

BETTER TO BE SAFE: Most of us assume that all we need to do to prevent sunburns and skin cancer from exposure to the sun is to slather on sunscreen. But consumers should be careful about which sunscreens they trust for themselves and, even more importantly, for their kids.

Most of us assume that all we need do to prevent sunburns and skin cancer from exposure to the sun is to slather on any of the widely available sunscreens on the market today. But the non-profit Environmental Working Group (EWG) points out that this may not be the case, and that consumers should be careful about which sunscreens they trust for themselves and, even more important, for their kids. According to EWG, some researchers have detected an increased risk of melanoma skin cancer among sunscreen users. “No one knows the cause, but scientists speculate that sunscreen users stay out in the sun longer and absorb more radiation overall,” reports EWG. Scientists also suspect, says EWG, that free radicals, which get released as sunscreen chemicals break down in sunlight, may be playing a role. Most sunscreens screen out some of the ultraviolet B (UVB) rays from the sun that lead to visible sun burns, but many do not protect against the potentially more damaging ultraviolet A (UVA) rays that penetrate deeper into the skin and may facilitate the development of skin cancer later on, regardless of how high a Sunburn Protection Factor (SPF) the sunscreen may have. Also, EWG warns that many common sunscreen ingredients generate free radicals that can damage the body’s DNA and skin cells, accelerating skin aging and potentially causing skin cancer in the process. But just because some sunscreens can’t be trusted and overexposure to the sun is unhealthy doesn’t mean staying indoors all the time is a viable solution. Getting some

sun is good for you, as the body converts it to Vitamin D, an essential nutrient that facilitates good health and prevents a wide range of diseases. So what’s a sun lover to do? The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) recommends wearing protective clothing, seeking shade, and timing outdoor play to avoid peak sun. IARC adds that sunscreen still has a place in our lives to augment these other sun exposure minimization tactics. But which sunscreens do live up to EWG’s stringent standards? The major choice is between chemical sunscreens that break down quickly, penetrate deep into the skin and may disrupt the body’s hormone system, and mineral varieties that can contain potentially irritating and damaging nanoscale particles. According to EWG, mineral sunscreens are the better choice, as they protect against both UVB and UVA rays, remain effective longer and don’t contain as many dangerous substances. Some leading mineral-based options come from Alba Botanica, Beyond Coastal, ECO Logical Skin Care, Karen’s Botanicals, Kiss My Face, Poofy Organics and Solar Sense, among others. For those who don’t like mineral based sunscreens, which can be chalky and leave a white film until washed off, EWG recommends sunscreens with avobenzone (three percent for the best UVA protection) and without the notorious hormone disrupter oxybenzone. Some leading non-mineral choices are available from manufacturers including Bull Frog, Ocean Potion, Sunbow and Vichy.

New York’s new environmental ‘hero’ is the humble oyster NEW YORK On a summer morning, marine biologist Ray Grizzle reaches into the waters of the Bronx River estuary and pulls up an oyster. The 2-year-old female is “good and healthy.” He grabs another handful and gets more good news. “This is a really dynamic area: Live oysters, reproducing!” the University of New Hampshire scientist says. Grizzle holds up a glistening mollusk. He is standing waist-deep in the murky estuary littered with old tires, bottles, shopping carts and rank debris. A gun was once found. Marine scientists like him, planners and government officials say millions of mollusks planted in waters off New York and other cities could go a long way toward cleaning up America’s polluted urban environment. The oyster and other shellfish can slurp up toxins and eliminate decades of dirt. Landscape architect Kate Orff has a name for the work she does as part of the Oyster Restoration Research Project: Oyster-tecture. Orff is designing a park and a living reef for the mouth of Brooklyn’s Gowanus Canal, where oysters could take hold and filter one of the nation’s most polluted waterways. “My new hero is the oyster, with its biological power,” Orff says. Oyster-tecture is a 21st-century approach to creating waterfront landscapes by regenerating long-gone shellfish. Construction has begun on a new pier area that is to host Orff ’s reef. In her Manhattan office, she holds up a tangle of fuzzy black ropes that will be attached to the Brooklyn pier and filled with shellfish, which need to latch onto something to survive — whether a rock, dead shell or synthetic object. The Oyster Restoration Research Project, a New York-based nonprofit, partners with the NY/NJ Baykeeper ecology advocate working at the Bronx site, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers that built an oyster reef on Governors Island off Manhattan. While oysters are cultivated around the world, the United States has some of the best regeneration programs, says Bill Goldsborough, director of fisheries program at Chesapeake Bay Foundation in Annapolis, Md. The bay is a center of natural oyster growth, and regeneration is thriving just outside urban Annapolis and in Baltimore harbor. Scientists also are trying to rejuvenate the oyster population in the Hudson River near Yonkers, north of New York, where explorer Henry Hudson spotted oysters in 1609. “Having oysters improves the whole aquatic habitat, attracting fish and other marine life to the area,” says Dennis Suszkowski, the science director of the nonprofit Hudson River Foundation. The story of the black bivalve in New York is key to the history of America’s biggest city. When the Dutch arrived in Manhattan

in the 1600s, the island was surrounded by mammoth oyster beds that fed the Lenape Indians. They covered hundreds of square miles underwater — so important as a major export that today’s Ellis and Liberty islands were called Little Oyster Island and Great Oyster Island in colonial times. Rich and poor New Yorkers and visitors dined on them in a maritime metropolis filled with vessels and street vendors hawking roasted oysters, long before hot dogs. But they slowly died out by the turn of the 19th century, overwhelmed by industrial waste, sewage, diseases and the dredging of the harbor to make room for shipping and development. Now, new beds of oysters for New York’s broken-down ecosystem are budding in more than a half dozen locations in the area. If the water temperature, currents, chemistry and other conditions are right, the bivalve can break down the pollution and thrive. But while suitable for cleanup work, they should not be eaten and poachers should not harvest polluted oysters and sell them for profit. Under Gov. Chris Christie, New Jersey banned oyster restoration in 2010 in waters classified as contaminated for shellfish, citing public health. In New York City, oyster restoration projects were started about seven years ago, with the city Department of Parks initiating the one in the Bronx — a 30-foot-long artificial reef made of rubble, old shells and hundreds of mollusks. “It’s so shocking that we’re out there in the South Bronx and oysters are thriving — shocking to people who wouldn’t put their little toe in the water for fear of how polluted it is,” says Marit Larson, a water management expert at the department’s Natural Resources Group. Larson says the aim of what she calls “ecological engineering” is to create hundreds of acres of reefs in the next decades, populated with mollusks that form naturally spawning colonies. Funding for the projects comes from private and government sources. A 1-acre bed with up to 1 million oysters costs at least $50,000 to plant and manage. Some new plantings in New York Harbor failed because the oysters were swept away by currents and boat wakes. So close attention must be paid to the beds that have succeeded. “The question is ‘how can we use the natural processes of organisms that were once here in abundance,’” she says. If oyster regeneration can be sustained and expanded, “it’s the ultimate success story for one of the most urban and heavily used harbors in the world.” Grizzle says the oyster is the perfect aquatic engineer for the job. It pumps water to feed, retains any polluted particles and releases the rest — purified. Each one filters about 50 gallons of water a day.

LYON FROM PAGE 1 DP: How did you envision your first year going? SL: One of the things that I thought was that I would get out to schools more. I also think that I didn’t understand the community involvement level, and the interaction and relationship that the district has with the city of Santa Monica, city of Malibu and sort of the political connectedness that not every district has. DP: Did the level of community involvement surprise you? SL: It’s unique to have so many committees and so many people involved in them. Trying to get an understanding of our relationship with the community and community expectations took a bit longer than it might in some districts where those community groups are fewer and usually under the purview of the superintendent. DP: What does that engagement add to the conversation, and what challenges does it present? SL: I think it obviously adds a lot. This is a very engaged, passionate community of people who are intelligent, educated and experienced. When you have those folks sitting around a table working on an issue, you’ve got a lot of people who bring a lot to bear on every discussion, and I think that’s a huge advantage. On the other hand, I think the challenge is that sometimes the district is working in a parallel structure to the com-

We have you covered munity, and what I want to work more on is co-missioning so that our community groups are working with us, giving us input, giving us feedback and we’re all rowing in the same direction. DP: The community has accused the district of lacking transparency in the past. How will you address that? SL: I think the struggle that we have is the idea of transparency to some people means they’re involved at every level, and the reality is that you can’t run a district without some decisions being made by the people we pay to make them. DP: How do you decide? SL: If a decision needs to be made there really are very few options, the trust is that I’m going to choose from those small array of options and it’s going to be done … For decisions that are really about change, about big picture goals and pieces that involve a lot of the parts of a district or organization, you really need everybody at the table having those conversations. (We need to be) transparent enough that people understand our thinking. They may not always agree, but that they understand why we did what we did is critical, especially in those big picture kind of issues. DP: Did districtwide fundraising follow that model? SL: I think it did, and what I really try to get community folks to understand was the board is elected to create the “what,” the policy that governs us. The staff and community work to do the “how,” how are we going to make that happen. The board had a clear

vision and direction and we passed that policy, but to make it work within the community we do need all of the stakeholders around the table working on the details. DP: What will the districtwide fundraising conversation look like in the future? SL: So now what you’re going to see in this next year is the next iteration of that community involvement as the Superintendent’s Advisory Committee. We’ve moved out of the piece where we crafted that timeline and presented it to the board, and now the committee’s going to really work on the details and how that is going to play out, what the next three years are going to look like — the relationship between the (Parent Teacher Associations) and Education Foundation. That will be an ongoing committee that will continue throughout the life of this so that there’s always a mechanism for the community and district staff to be talking about our goals, what we think it will take to fund them and what it will take within the community to make that happen. DP: What big discussions are on the horizon? SL: I think what you’re going to see over the course of the year is more involvement, more discussion over the achievement gap because our data continues to be not what we want it to be in that area and I remain convinced that we are a district that can make great strides. The common core is big for us. (Common Core Curriculum is a new set of nationwide education standards that will allow student data in one state to be compared to student data in another.)

It’s the standards that nationally 46 states have adopted. It will be a big shift for us instructionally because they are very performance-based. They will require more from our students in terms of critical thinking and being able to communicate their thinking and the writing — it’s a big shift. We really want our teachers to be well-versed in the common core and understand what it looks like in the classroom when student learning is being measured in a different way. The other thing is 21st century learning skills. There are four Cs that we talk about nationwide, and they are critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity. We need students that are innovators, we need students that are thinkers, we need people who will be able to work in the flat world. How are we then as instructors planning lessons that get kids to learn those pieces? DP: What do you think are some unfair criticisms the district receives? SL: I don’t know about unfair but I will say it goes back to the transparency issue. People will say we did something secretively when, in fact, the board agenda was published, board notes have gone out but we didn’t send above-and-beyond e-mails, which is just not something we have the time or the staff to do or is really how most districts — or any district I’ve ever worked in — functions. I don’t know that’s unfair, but I think it is sometimes maybe an unrealistic expectation that the district isn’t communicating about things that are being communicated but SEE TALK PAGE 11

Morgan Genser news@smdp.com TEAM WORK: Samohi defenders Russell Revis (left) and Genki Yoshida converge on Redondo Union quarterback Bren Galbason on Friday at Santa Monica College’s Corsair Field.

SAMOHI FROM PAGE 1 from Serra last spring, finished the night with 254 yards passing and three touchdowns. He added a 1-yard keeper for a fourth score during his debut behind center. LaRue was on the receiving end of two of those scores. Transfer Jason King caught the third for Samohi. The Vikings scored early and often against an over-matched Redondo Union defense. The game’s first score came on a 62-yard touchdown scamper by Samohi running back Russell Revis. Redondo Union was able to answer later in the first quarter when Stephen Sudduth punched a run in for a 3-yard score. That’s when Samohi opened up through the air. King caught the first of Barbarin’s three touchdown passes with LaRue adding another before Redondo answered with a 4yard second quarter scoring run by Anthony Philyaw, who finished the night with 148 yards on the ground. With the Vikings up 21-14 with 8 minutes left in the second quarter, Samohi would score three unanswered touchdowns

highlighted by a 45-yard interception return by senior safety Matt Rusk-Kosa that put the game out of reach for Redondo Union. The Sea Hawks were able to score one more time in the fourth quarter, but Samohi ran out the clock to secure the victory. Even with success comes analysis. Samohi head coach Travis Clark said that he was happy to see his offense open up through the air, but added that lapses on defense and penalties were troubling. “I’ll take the victory,” Clark said. “But I saw some things that we need to work on.” The view from the other sideline was a little different. First-year Redondo Union head coach Matt Ballard couldn’t help but be impressed by Samohi’s ability to score. He said that allowing such an explosive offense to take a lead was too much for his Sea Hawks to overcome. “You just can’t make mistakes against a team that athletic,” Ballard said. “We’re going to learn from it.” Samohi moves on to face traditional rival Palisades next Friday on the road. The game is scheduled for 7 p.m. daniela@smdp.com

one building built, but won’t meet the rest of the academic needs. So the problem is that there are ongoing needs and no extra resources, so you really do have to have an ongoing bond plan to upkeep 100-year-old buildings, which we have.

DP: What do you tell people about the bond measure?

DP: Do you support Proposition 30 or Proposition 38?

(Measure ES, which will appear on the ballot in November, is a $385 million bond that will go to repair aging facilities and bring new technology to the district.) SL: I can never tell anybody how to vote on any measure, I can just explain what the implications are for us as a district. For us as a district in terms of the bond measure, facilities are never going to be taken care of unless a local bond measure is passed. I just felt it was imperative not to neglect the facilities side of the house. That was really the decision around it. We have relocatables. The plans have been for years to replace those, and there has to be a bond piece to get that done. We have safety upgrades we got started with (Measure) BB (the $268 million bond passed in 2006) that won’t be done without another bond. There’s also the Malibu High project, and then Samohi, which has huge needs. BB is going to get the

(Proposition 30 is a tax measure put forward by Gov. Jerry Brown. It would raise the sales tax by one-quarter of 1 percent and raise taxes for the wealthiest Californians. Proposition 38 is a measure created by education activist Molly Munger. That measure proposes to raise income taxes for most Californians.) SL: We just don’t know as much about what the impact will be for Proposition 38. Obviously, since the governor’s proposing Proposition 30 and it’s tied to our current revenue stream, what we know is without Proposition 30 passing there is a trigger cut immediately. So that’s a huge impact for us. Lots of folks, including the (California School Board Association) are asking people to pass both, or to vote for both because we need one to pass.

STUDENTS FROM PAGE 3 pay higher tuition bills and signing up for unnecessary electives to retain financial aid because courses that count toward degree requirements are full. Meanwhile, many high school seniors and community college graduates are frozen out altogether because admissions have been limited. “You have a generally, very stressed out student population,” said Parker Jean, a political science student at Santa Monica College, a two-year school. The squeeze could get worse. If voters fail to approve Gov. Jerry Brown’s November referendum to hike income taxes on the wealthy and boost the state sales tax to generate more revenue, colleges and universities will lose another $800 million, triggering more tuition hikes, enrollment freezes and program cuts. “Without that money they’re expecting in November, we’re in free-fall,” said Patrick Callan, president of the

We have you covered Higher Education Policy Institute, a think tank in San Jose. “We’re on a course to make higher education out of reach.” Referendum opponents, however, say Brown is using the threat of more higher education cuts as a stick to get support for the tax plan. If Brown wanted to fund higher education, he could reform public pensions and drop expensive projects like the bullet train, said Aaron McLear, spokesman for Californians for Reforms and Jobs, Not Taxes. “He’s using students as a pawn,” McLear said. Tuition at CSU and UC has roughly doubled over the past five years. Students at UC, which serves 220,000 students at 10 campuses, pay $13,202 in tuition and fees. At CSU, which has 425,000 students across its 23 campuses, tuition and fees run $7,017. The state’s 112 community colleges have seen tuition and fees soar 77 percent over the past three years, to about $1,500 a year for a fulltime student. At the same time, professors have been laid off, the number of classes reduced and admissions curtailed. Enrollment at the state’s community colleges has plunged

from 2.9 million in 2008 to 2.4 million in 2011. This fall, 470,000 students are on waitlists for courses, the chancellor’s office said. CSU, meanwhile, closed the door on most admissions for the spring semester, shutting out 16,000 students. As a result, more students are now choosing private colleges or out-of-state alternatives. Daniel Allison, the younger brother of the CSU senior, just graduated from Antelope Valley Community College, but he was short two courses required to transfer to Sacramento State University. He opted to transfer to San Diego Christian College instead, paying almost twice the cost of the state school, reasoning that even if he waited to take those two courses at Antelope Valley, there was no guarantee he’d get them and he didn’t know how long it would take to graduate from the CSU. “Instead of two years, it’s taking three, three-and-a-half years. It’s too crowded,” Daniel Allison said. Professors say students are desperate even for a seat on a lecture hall floor. “One student broke into tears because she couldn’t get a class to meet the minimum requirements for financial aid,” said Jonathan Karpf, an anthropology lecturer at San Jose State University, where his classload has increased from 40 students to 60, and he still can’t accommodate the demand. The crunch has forced some students to alter their academic aspirations. Adriana Hubert, a senior at UCI, said she’s given up her hope of complementing her psychology/social behavior major with a public health minor because the health classes are too crowded. Instead, she’s focusing on simply getting a full-time course load to keep her student housing and graduate this spring. “I think a little bit of my education has suffered, but tuition is getting unbearable,” she said. “A lot of us who are seniors want to get out before the next fee increase.” Students are also frustrated with changing admissions policies. While CSU is not admitting most in-state students for the spring, it will admit non-California residents, who pay higher tuition. Similarly, UC has allotted more slots to non-California residents for the same reason. Out-of-state UC students pay almost triple the in-state tuition rate. University officials say the out-of-state students help subsidize in-state students, but local students say they feel betrayed. “You’re giving priority to people with more money,” said David Allison, president of the California State Student Association. Educators say they are painfully aware that students are struggling. Many schools have already dug into reserves to close budget holes, but if the November referendum does not pass, cuts will be even deeper. “The real tragedy is all the students we’re pushing out,” said Brice Harris, chancellor of Los Rios Community College District in Sacramento. “November is a very critical decision point for the state of California.”

FOOD FROM PAGE 3 “Why can’t we tap into this bread-basket that’s around us?” Farmers post their products on the Ag Link site, school officials browse and make purchases. The company handles the billing and verifies farmers’ certification and food safety standards. It charges a small transaction fee: 4 percent for farmers, 2.5 percent for schools. So far, about 15 school districts have registered, as well as about a dozen farmers. The goal is to save school districts money and time, Nairn said, by cutting down on transportation costs, providing a list of farmers and an e-commerce platform. “Schools don’t have time to call around farmers and go shopping every week,” Nairn said. “Our site allows that networking to happen online.” School officials say they must overcome hurdles when it comes to buying local. They must meet nutritional guidelines, follow safety standards, and get competitive bids from three producers. They also need to create procedures to chop, wash and store or freeze fresh produce. But the extra effort is worth it for food

managers like Soiseth in Turlock, where the district this year will double the amount of produce it buys to meet the new regulations. Ag Link already provides about 30 percent of the produce for the district’s 9,000 students. “It’s revolutionary to our valley,” Soiseth said. “Many of the new farmers we use are in our backyard, and we’ve been trying to reach out to them for a while, but we didn’t know how.” And the price is right, Soiseth said: the district purchased Gala apples via Ag Link last week for 17 cents apiece, while through normal channels they would have cost 42 cents. The apples grow on a farm a dozen miles away. Local farmers say Ag Link has helped them tap into a new market — the National School Lunch Program that serves 32 million children nationwide every day. Noel La Rosa, who with her husband grows nectarines, peaches, cherries, plums, tomatoes, and watermelons on 40 acres in Hughson, Calif., has delivered cases of stone fruit to Turlock schools and is set to make a delivery to the Denair Unified School district this week. “Our dream was to bring fresh fruit to schools,” La Rosa said, “and this company showed up on our door to help make the connections.”

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.

NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY

CHUCK

SHEPARD

■ In August, the federal Drug Enforcement Administration dropped all charges against a doctor who has been at the center of a prescription-drug fraud case because, said prosecutors, they have too much evidence against him and not enough space to store it. The U.S. attorney in northern Iowa said her office needs to clear out the 400,000 paper documents and two terabytes of electronic data (the latter of which under current technology takes up little space but in DEA's antiquated computer system hogs 5 percent of the agency's worldwide electronic storage). The accused, Dr. Armando Angulo, has lived since 2004 in Panama, which will not extradite him. (He remains under indictment on state charges in Florida.) ■ If Megan Duskey's parents had been with her that night in 2010, they perhaps would have insisted she (dressed as the comic book hero Silver Spectre) not try to slide down the railing during the Halloween-themed ball at Chicago's Palmer House Hilton hotel, but she did slide down, and she fell four floors to her death. Nonetheless, in July 2012, the parents filed a $500,000 lawsuit against Hilton and other entities, claiming that the death of Ms. Duskey at age 23 was the hotel's and the sponsors' fault.

TODAY IN HISTORY – Dagen H in Sweden: traffic changes from driving on the left to driving on the right overnight. – Qatar becomes an independent state – Viking program: The American Viking 2 spacecraft lands at Utopia Planitia on Mars. – An 87-automobile pile-up happens on Highway 401 freeway just East of Windsor, Ontario, Canada after an unusually thick fog from Lake St. Clair.
