NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY CHUCK SHEPARD

The Gentle Wind Project of Kittery, Maine, was recently in the news for filing a federal lawsuit against a couple who had allegedly slandered the group with claims of mind control and child neglect, among other charges. According to a Gentle Wind spokesperson, each human lives inside an energy field 8 to 10 feet high, 4 to 6 feet wide, which sometimes gets damaged and must be repaired. Its “healing instruments” are just the tools to do that, bringing good health, based on “20 years” of research. For example, its “Puck Puck” (which resembles several tuning forks) is said to bring relief from high blood pressure, arthritis, migraines, ulcers and chronic fatigue to those who merely hold them, and it has even been known to help people “forgive.” On the other hand, wrote the spokesperson, “We’re not New Age wackos.”...

TODAY IN HISTORY ON SEPT. 13, 1788, the Congress of the Confederation authorized the first national election, and declared New York City the temporary national capital. ■ In 1759, during the final French and Indian War, the British defeated the French on the Plains of Abraham overlooking Quebec City.

CAMPAIGN 2004 (Editor’s note: This is the first article in a multipart series this week on the Chamber of Commerce’s political action committee interviews with City Council candidates). BY CAROLYN SACKARIASON Daily Press Staff Writer

CHAMBER OF COMMERCE — The 11 candidates running for City Council might differ on a broad spectrum of issues, but they all agree on one thing — Santa Monica shouldn’t be the only city on the westside that bears the brunt of an increasing homeless population. And although they all agree the problem needs to be tackled on a regional level, they don’t all agree on

how to deal with it locally. City Council candidates were interviewed last week by the Chamber of Commerce’s political action committee, which will make its endorsements on Tuesday. It’s the chamber’s hope to replace four council seats with its own picks to gain a majority on the council that has been long dominated by members of the powerful political group known as Santa Monicans For Renters’ Rights. The interviews were dominated by the issue of homelessness and how city government can control the population here. Homelessness in Santa Monica has been regarded as one of the most important issues facing residents. As a result, it’s become a hot button election issue. Candidates’ ideas on how to handle the estimated 1,200 homeless people in Santa Monica range from wanting to continue with the millions of dollars in funding for social services to creating a makeshift “tent city” where vagrants would be allowed to sleep in the 1550 beach parking lot north of the pier. During the day, the lot would be opened for parking. See CANDIDATES, page 6

Let the games begin: Endorsements for City Council on the horizon BY CAROLYN SACKARIASON Daily Press Staff Writer

CHAMBER OF COMMERCE — Officials here last week reached deep into the political vortex, setting the precedent for how future election campaigns will be handled. How the chamber of commerce’s involvement in elections will be accepted by the public remains to be seen, but last week’s endorsement interviews with City Council candidates has at least made clear See ENDORSEMENTS, page 6

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) ★★★★ Your unpredictability charges others with nervous energy or might cause someone to pull away. Recognize what you need to do to keep key people relaxed. In the long run, you will build better relationships. Tonight: Beam in what you want.

COMMUNITY BRIEFS SMC students given ‘unusual’ number of scholarships By Daily Press staff

In what UCLA officials said was highly unusual, five Santa Monica College transfer students have each won prestigious UCLA Regents scholarships, which they will use when they begin classes at the Westwood campus on Sept. 30. Julia Dobrovolsky, Alexander Gabrovsky, Kristen Glasgow, Jiuan-Ru Jennifer Lai and Christoph Seitz will each receive $5,500 a year with additional funds available based on need. Recipients are selected on the basis of demonstrated academic excellence, leadership and exceptional promise. “It’s rare for there to be five scholarship recipients from one school in one year,” said Gail Ishino, UCLA’s Financial Aid assistant director. “It’s quite an accomplishment.” The Regents Scholarship Program, established in 1962, is considered one of the highest honors awarded to students attending UCLA.

Today the water Is:

On Monday look for building NW wind swell to join slowly building SE swell. Northern LA spots with decent wind swell exposure see 1-3’ surf, with more consistent waist-high sets at best breaks. South Bay breaks will work the NW energy for knee-waist high waves at many breaks and sets to chest high at standout spots, mainly in the north half of the bay. Winds will be generally light in the morning, with light S winds possible. Look for onshore W wind to build in the 8-12 knot+ range in the afternoon.

Santa Monica will be a major center of westside tennis now that a new youth tennis league has been launched. “More and more Santa Monica teams and players turned in dominating performances in westside youth leagues over recent seasons,” said Rich Rollins, league coordinator. He is issuing a call for players. “So we decided to create a Youth Team Tennis League based at Samohi Tennis Centre to accommodate their competitive drive.” Kickoff day for the new Santa Monica Youth Tennis League was on Sunday. It is sponsored by the Tennis Patrons of Santa Monica, a longtime supporter and promoter of tennis in Santa Monica. “We expect 40 kids to be competing on opening day with the numbers likely to grow rapidly,” Rollins said. “Young tennis talent around Santa Monica is basically untapped, and this league will provide the perfect opportunity for kids to test themselves, week in, week out, against their peers.” League play begins on Sept. 19, with the season lasting through Dec. 5. The league is now accepting registrations for the fall session. The league is open to youth ages 8 through 18. It will hold regular doubles clinics and competitions. Cost of the program is $85 per season. For further information about the league call (310) 641-3203. Or go to www.santamonicatennis.info.

The Santa Monica Kiwanis Club has pooled the resources of its service agency members to create a character development camp for Santa Monica middle school students. On Aug. 28, 50 middle school students left for a week-long program in Big Bear. The Santa Monica Kiwanis Club and affiliated social service agencies donated all of the costs. A partnership between the Santa Monica Kiwanis Club and the UCLA/Santa Monica Hospital provided pediatric exams for 20 students who did not have access to medical care. The instruction was provided by the Santa Monica YMCA, Santa Monica YWCA, Santa Monica Police Activities League, Boys and Girls Club of Santa Monica and the Santa Monica Red Cross. In addition to regular camp activities, the campers were taught skills in teamwork, self-esteem, tolerance for other people’s differences, how to overcome taunting and prejudice, and appreciation for community service. The Santa Monica Kiwanis Club specifically selected kids from challenging backgrounds and at particularly vulnerable times in their lives. It is the hope of the Santa Monica Kiwanis Club that other Kiwanis Clubs and social service agencies will adopt the pilot program, officials said.

Earlier this year, the Chamber of Commerce established a political action committee to endorse City Council candidates, which has never been done before. The chamber will raise hundreds of thousands of dollars and tirelessly campaign for their candidates. How it proceeds from here will be critical for the future of Santa Monica, political observers say. Through local voters, the chamber hopes to overthrow a city government that has been dominated by a more liberal-thinking group called the Santa Monicans For Renters’ Rights for the majority of the past 26 years. It’s widely known that the chamber and City Hall have for years had an adversarial rela-

tionship. The business community laments that policies set by the current administration create an unfriendly environment for residents and visitors. So this week, Q-Line wants to know, “Do you think the Chamber of Commerce and its endorsements will represent your issues and views in the upcoming election? Why or why not?” Call (310) 285-8106 before Friday at 5 p.m. and we’ll print your response in our weekend edition. Please limit your comments to a minute or less. It might help to think first about the wording of your response.

OPINION

Searching for candidates with plans COMMON SCENTS BY CAROLE ORLIN

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR A friend lost Editor: I saw Jim Burry (SMDP, Sept. 9-10, page 1) less and less over the years, but I and many others remember him well in the glorious ’60s when he attended UCLA in the daytime and tended bar in the evenings at Ye Olde Mucky Duck, the original British Pub in California. I will not soon forget the feisty Scotsman who poured me about a thousand pints of Watneys Red Barrel and always had a smile and a funny story to go with them. Aurevoir Jim! We will drink together in the great beyond. N J Gazey Santa Monica

A lesson in flag flying Editor: On Sept. 7, during my last day in your fair city, I parked my rental car by Santa Monica’s Kerry/Edwards campaign headquarters. While sipping coffee at the nearby coffee shop’s patio on Wilshire Boulevard, I asked my friend Jimbo what he thought of the upcoming election. He held up three fingers and said “Viva Bush!” I asked him to be more specific, and he simply said “Just look at the flag in their window.” I glanced over at the Democratic headquarters window and blushed a bit at what I saw ... the American flag was hung in a improper manner. I blushed, for being a Navy veteran, I should have seen this mistake sooner. I said “So what? It’s an honest mistake I’m sure.” He retorted, “... If those guys can’t be trusted to put our flag in the right direction, why should they be trusted to put our nation in the right direction?” I, myself, am undecided, but just for kicks I looked up the U.S. Flag Code, and here is what I found: Title 36, Chapter 10, sub-section 175 (i) of the law enacted by Congress states in part ... “when the flag is displayed in a window, the union, or field of blue, should be displayed to the left of the observer on the street.” The flag in the Kerry/Edwards headquarters window is shown with the blue field to the street observer’s right. I should say here that I suggested to my friend Jimbo that we go to the Kerry/Edwards headquarters and politely tell them of the mistake . He looked at me like Archie Bunker looks at Edith, and so I just let that sleeping dog lay. Anyway, if this letter does get printed, I hope someone at the Kerry/Edwards campaign headquarters takes note because even Jimbo, like the broken clock that he is, can be right if only twice a day. All kidding aside, our flag does warrant the proper respect and display that so many gave so much for, especially from the campaign headquarters of a presidential hopeful who himself served under those very colors. Cheryl D. Strong Colorado City, Colo.

I was pleased to read the recent article in the SMDP (Sept. 4-5, page 1) about the soon to be unveiled “plan to end homelessness” in Los Angeles County. This plan, created by a panel dubbed “Bring LA Home,” is set for release on Sept. 23. The goal will be to end homelessness in LA County within 10 years. Will this be the solution for Santa Monica? Santa Monica has long been known for being a haven for the homeless. I have been a strong advocate for the homeless. Before moving to Santa Monica in 2000, my husband and I both worked as volunteers in a soup kitchen on the East Coast and felt good about helping those in need. I still feel good about helping those in need, but my experiences with the transient population in Santa Monica has been rather startling. Although by definition, transient means passing through, these “transients” seem to be here to stay. This anomaly has caused me to rethink the difference between homeless people and our permanent “transients.” In my mind there is a difference. The homeless population I worked with was, for the most part, very motivated to change their circumstances. They were assigned to a caseworker, and the expectation was that they would follow the program offered or they could not enjoy the privileges of this particular soup kitchen, which included hot meals, clean clothes, showers, temporary mail and message center, job referrals, medical referrals, and shelter and housing referrals. They had to be clean and sober when they showed up for dinner. If they were given a job lead or a lead on housing, they were expected to follow up on it. A caseworker often went with them when they looked for housing or a job and helped them with other life skills. They were expected to go into drug rehab programs or attend AA or NA if they had an alcohol or drug problem, and the caseworker helped them coordinate with the particular program that was available. If they needed help for mental health issues, they were referred to or taken to the appropriate resource. A lot of people did not stay with the program and comply with the rules, but many people did. For those who stayed with the program, their lives were slowly

but surely changed in a positive direction for themselves and for the community. In looking back at those people who did not succeed, many didn’t really want to change their circumstances. They wanted the free handouts that were offered: the free food, clothing, etc. They felt they were entitled to it. This is by and large the type of transient population I have all too frequently encountered in Santa Monica. I have seen the same individuals hustling people in the same spots for years now. I have encountered very intelligent, articulate and savvy people who would rather complain about how tough their circumstances are rather than do something to make a change. Transients come to Santa Monica because they know it is easy to live a transient lifestyle here. The city government here enables them to continue their lifestyle — the weather is good, free meals are made available on the beach, and the police do little to interfere with non-violent laws they break. When a group of transients repeatedly broke into and trashed some property I owned in Santa Monica, the police responded and tried to be helpful, but admitted there was not much they could do. Word gets out in the transient community about Santa Monica being a haven for the homeless, and we get stuck with this unmotivated population for decades on end. We are currently spending about $2 million each year on services for homeless people in Santa Monica. Are we seeing any positive results? I know that in my four years of living and working in Santa Monica, I have seen the problem get worse, not better. I know I will get mail about how hard it is to get a job and live in Santa Monica. If that’s the case, then go to a place where it is easier. I see people who speak little or no English get jobs all the time. They will take any job that is offered because they want to change their circumstances. Why can’t the able-bodied transients do the same? Is day labor beneath them? Housing and jobs are difficult to find in Santa Monica, so why stay where it’s so difficult? There is a lack of logic with their arguments. I was in a Barnes and Noble bookstore a few weeks ago, and two young, healthylooking transients were exchanging information about free “this” and free “that.” They were musing on the fact that every time the city attempts to pass ordinances restricting their lifestyle, they seemed to have the reverse effect and end up getting more. I know there are many people on the street who are mentally ill and

desperately in need of help, especially some elderly women. I fear for their safety. Where do they sleep at night? Are they safe from predators? These people need our help. They need to be in a safe environment. I was a nurse for many years and worked with the mentally ill. I am very aware of the right of people to refuse medication, and there are people for whom the current available medications do not work. Maybe that is why this group of people is on the streets. Perhaps intervention was attempted and refused, or the medications they received were not helpful. I know that since “deinstitutionalization” began, many mentally ill have been cast into the streets. Is there enough outreach for this genuinely needy population? Unfortunately, the transients that are practicing alcoholics, drug abusers and/or anti-social with no desire to become contributing members of the community seem to dominate our homeless population here in Santa Monica. They have alienated many in the community — not just business owners, as is often claimed. The local elections are fast approaching. From discussions with friends and neighbors, and reading numerous letters to the editor, there might not be a more important issue to confront in this election than evaluating how each candidate stands on the homeless/transient issue. This election is an extremely important one for local issues because there are four council seats up for grabs. I hope the concerned citizens of Santa Monica will see the difference between the homeless who genuinely need our help and the anti-social “transients” who are destroying our city and taking advantage of the good hearts and intentions of many of our citizens. The candidates running for City Council need to see this difference and present to us a vision and a specific plan of action to improve everyone’s quality of life in Santa Monica. Later this month, when the comprehensive plan to end homelessness in LA County is released and reviewed, we will certainly be very interested in hearing how this might affect Santa Monica in the long run. Equally important, we will be looking at the actions that can be taken in the short run to promptly confront and take immediate steps to improve the situation for all of Santa Monica. To the candidates for City Council: We will be waiting for your responses.

OPINION

The grass might seem greener on the other side, but does it have weeds? HIP TO BE SQUARE BY CAROLINE BODKIN

When you’re somewhere away from home — visiting a friend at the college you almost went to, or on vacation in another city, another country, another town — it’s hard not to imagine what your life would be like if you lived there. What if I went to that other school? What if I lived on Maui full time? What if I gave up my city for this one? What if I gave up city life for country living? Are there better jobs here? Is there more to do? Could I give up my life for the one I see here? My boyfriend and I live in a big, dirty, exciting but exhausting city. A big part of us longs to go back to a small town with open space and clean air. We stay in the city because there are things we want to do, achieve, go for and finish there that can’t be done, achieved or attempted elsewhere. But when my boyfriend and I were on vacation in northern Maine, we found ourselves asking all those “what if” questions. What if we moved to this small town? Could we grant ourselves the quiet life we crave, on this beautiful coast, knowing that it would mean giving up the things that we’re “going for” in the city? The real question is, do our reasons for staying put justify ignoring the fact that we might truly be happier somewhere else? Is it worth sticking it out? On day four of our vacation, while sitting at the bar in our favorite restaurant, we were indulging this “what if” dialogue on how we’d make a living in our new home when the owner of the restaurant slid behind the bar. He paused to listen, then smiled and nodded. This sort of conversation must amuse him because at age 26, he has already made his decision. He ducked out of the New York restaurant scene three years ago to do just what he wanted, just where he wanted. We asked him how business was going, and he said it’d been a slow summer due to July’s heavy rains, but that things were picking up and should be steady until they

closed on Columbus Day. He’d spend the winter traveling and hoped things would be better next year. I believe in this place, he said, it just takes time. Weeds grow overnight, but trees take time. He’d have to stick it out to find out, and he planned to give it his all in the meantime. The grass is greener mentality is either a great liability or a real motivation. If you’re always thinking about the better life that you could live elsewhere, how are you supposed to give your all to the life you have? On the other hand, is it possible that you would be happier if you made the major changes you daydream about? When we got back from the bar, I received a message from an old friend. It said something like this: “I’ve decided that my current job’s a dead end and have given my notice. I’m not sure what’s next, but I’d be happy to hear your thoughts.” This friend had bounced around from job to job and city to city since he graduated college. He’d had seemingly good opportunities in all these places, so it was hard to understand why he’d never found one that stuck. It seems there’s a difference between something that sticks to you and your deciding to stick something out. While one is obvious, the other takes faith and determination. After that, my boyfriend and I made a list. All the things we liked about our life that are specific to the city in which we live: Our friends, the opportunities and the stones yet unturned. When we returned from vacation, I called my friend and consoled him about leaving his latest job and city. He gave me a rundown on his new plan, and he asked me if I thought this one would work. I said he’d be OK wherever he ends up, whatever he decides to do. Life does work out. He pressed me, asking, “But do you think it’s going to work this time?” And I paused, considered, and said, “I guess you’ll have to give it your all if you want to find out.” Because that’s all I’ve got to go on, too.

That was an idea floated by Councilman Herb Katz, who is seeking reelection. The idea was in response to questions of how to deal with vagrants who sleep and defecate in downtown doorways, and whether more bathrooms should be made available downtown. “We ought to dedicate an area for them to sleep there and have toilets,” he told the committee. “I think we should use one of our parking lots at the beach.” He also suggested that there should be a mandatory law that requires vagrants who use city-funded social services to contribute to the community, in ways such as maintaining and cleaning public areas. “It will cut the homeless population in half,” Katz said. “You pay them the absolute minimum wage. Many of them don’t want to work, and they’ll go away.”

ENABLING THE ABUSERS? Several first-time candidates said there is a significant portion of the homeless population that abuse the system. As a result, City Hall enables them, which leads to chronic homelessness and attracts more vagrants to Santa Monica. “If I were going to offer services ... I think that we as a city shouldn’t help freeloaders,” said Bill Bauer, who is running as part of a slate with Kathryn Morea and David Cole. Bauer agreed jobs should be attached to social services. “If (a homeless person) can no longer get the free stuff, he’ll probably go somewhere else,” Bauer said. “The city’s policy is to go soft on the homeless.” Cole, like the other candidates, believes there are certain segments of the homeless population that need serious help — such as the mentally ill, and the drug and alcohol addicted. The problem, however, is that City Hall’s social services don’t differentiate between those who really need help and those who are abusing the system. He suggested that City Hall get tough on those who are repeatedly violating the law and demonstrating anti-social behavior. “If you repeatedly harass them and arrest them, they’ll get on a bus and go to a community that will be more accepting,” he said. Cole and Bauer’s running mate, Morea, was asked if the present ordinances designed to keep vagrants out of downtown are working and if she agreed with City Hall’s social services programs. “We have a lot of generous people and that’s great, but there is a segment of the population that take advantage,” she said, adding there should be more accountability attached to the programs and people should be limited on how much aid they get before they are cut off. “There are ways to make the programs more accountable,” Morea added. “There should be no free lunch.” Candidate Matt Dinolfo, who ran unsuccessfully in 2002, doesn’t think Katz’s tent city proposal is a rational solution. But portable toilets might alleviate the smell of urine and feces downtown, he said. “They have to relieve themselves, it’s common decency,” Dinolfo said. “If you have to have something, portable bathSee CANDIDATES, page 7

what the business community’s motives are for officially getting political. Earlier this year, the chamber established a political action committee to endorse candidates, which has never been done before. The chamber will raise hundreds of thousands of dollars and tirelessly campaign for their candidates. How it proceeds from here will be critical for the future of Santa Monica, political observers say. Through local voters, the chamber hopes to overthrow a city government that has been dominated by a more liberal-thinking group called the Santa Monicans For Renters’ Rights (SMRR) for the majority of the past 26 years. It’s widely known that the chamber and City Hall have for years had an adversarial relationship. The business community laments that policies set by the current administration create an unfriendly environment for residents and visitors. The chamber is expected to make endorsements on Tuesday for candidates running for four open City Council seats this November. Political action committee members drilled candidates on questions regarding homelessness, affordable housing, future development, the living wage issue, parking policies and City Hall bureaucracy. The dynamics of the process revealed that the chamber and the established political party’s differences are vast. Challengers to the status quo — who are the most likely to be endorsed — met with agreeable committee members. On the other hand, three of the incumbents found themselves defending their records, answering loaded questions and deflecting accusations. Two candidates who are already endorsed by SMRR and seeking a City Council seat for the first time weren’t without their share of challenging questions. The most heavily scrutinized was City Councilman Mike Feinstein, who after being challenged for the first 10 minutes of his interview, addressed committee members on their line of questioning. “We have a short time here, and I don’t think it’s productive to bring up the past,” he said, pointing out that he’s championed many causes for small businesses. “You’ve got a half hour with me, and I have done a lot of productive things (as a councilman).” Kathy Dodson, president and CEO of the chamber, said she thought the interviews went well. “That was a really important part of the process,” she said. “I think we may definitely do this again. I was really impressed with all of the candidates.” Even candidates who know they aren’t likely to get the chamber’s endorsement, or don’t necessarily need it, respect the process, and that’s why they put themselves under scrutiny. The process so far indicates that local politicos are navigating through new territory and are just beginning to See ENDORSEMENTS, page 7

Incumbents say homelessness not clear-cut issue

LAYING DOWN THE LAW All of the candidates were questioned on City Hall’s policies regarding a segment of the homeless population — the criminals and those who exude anti-social behavior. Those challenging the incumbents believe City Hall has fallen short on enforcing current laws and has created new ones that aren’t effective. However, the incumbents say it’s not a black-and-white issue — every time they create a new law designed to keep vagrants away, they are challenged by groups such as the ACLU that claim Constitutional rights are being trampled. That’s the case with an ordinance that was passed in 2002. It was designed to limit groups that distribute food in area parks and on the Third Street Promenade. But the law was watered down and thrown into City Hall’s community events policy, which allows up to 150 people to gather in a public space. Because of Constitutional freedoms, no distinction can be made between a church group handing out food to the homeless and a school group having a picnic. “It doesn’t have the effect we hoped it would have had,” Genser said. “We haven’t found a legal way to enforce that.” Many candidates were asked whether or not they would examine other cities to see what laws they have successfully used to keep vagrants away. But again, some incumbents say it’s not a clear-cut issue. “A lot of cities don’t do what we do because they are not sued like we are,” Genser said. “We have tried to use creative laws.” The real issue is that existing laws aren’t being enforced, many candidates agree. But there are varying opinions on why they aren’t being enforced. Some blame the city staff — particularly the City Council, City Attorney Marcia Moutrie and City Manager Susan

understand their new roles. Several candidates cautioned committee members to be aware of their actions in the coming months. “This is a turning point for the chamber of commerce,” said first-time candidate David Cole. “I fear for you.” The “us versus them” approach to important issues facing Santa Monica isn’t going to solve the problems, he added, pointing to a time when the chamber was more consensus based. “I think it’s a dangerous time for the chamber,” Cole said. City Councilman Ken Genser, who is seeking reelection and is backed by SMRR, said the chamber’s political involvement shouldn’t be motivated to challenge SMRR, but to work collectively with the entire community. He added that SMRR and the chamber need to re-evaluate their relationship as the process moves forward. “The question is whether SMRR versus the chamber can pass the smell test,” he said. The issues covered in the interviews are the most important to chamber members, and it’s hoped that their chosen candidates will best represent them. For the past several months, the political action committee has met with different segments of the business community — restaurateurs, retailers, the hotel industry and small business owners — to find out the most pressing concerns for them. Those concerns were addressed in a questionnaire given to candidates prior to being interviewed. Often times, the issues become emotionally charged because the stakes and frustration levels are high. Chamber officials point out that they are representing residents, business owners and visitors, who for three consecutive years have ranked homelessness, parking and traffic as their top concerns. Yet, they feel not much is being done to address them. Candidate Bill Bauer, who is a vocal opponent of SMRR, summed up the two sides’ relationship and the state of the city. “Everything seems to be going wrong,” he said. “When have they been considerate of our view? I’m sick of them.”

“We show up, and we never leave, we won’t give up,” Shriver said. “If people see you are serious, they will be serious. “I have outworked everybody, that’s the story of me,” he added. Shriver also said local laws and programs are BandAids to a larger problem. “I want a comprehensive solution. I want other cities involved and the state,” he said. “Pressure needs to be put on hospitals and policy makers.

mittee whether or not his family legacy of helping the poor would hinder him from getting tough on City Hall’s policies and vagrant population. “I don’t accept the distinction between caring and (being tough),” he said. “It’s a regional problem, and no person can say they have the solution to homelessness in Santa Monica.” He said he would be relentless in getting surrounding cities to share the burden.

rooms are easier to clean.” Dinolfo also said a closer look at the cost effectiveness of the city’s social service program is necessary to analyze whether or not it’s getting a significant number of people off the street. Incumbents Mayor Richard Bloom and Councilman Ken Genser defended City Hall’s continuum of care approach, and said the services are placing people into transitional and permanent housing. “We are helping fewer people, but they are getting better care,” Genser said, adding in the early 1990s when he was on the City Council, more services were created for people who really need help — the mentally ill, abused and addicted. Maria Loya, a first-time candidate, said homelessness is a national problem but offered little on how to deal with it locally. “We need to continue to provide the services,” she said. “There needs to be structure for them to be effective.” Some challengers agree with chamber officials that food programs in the parks and the abundance of social service programs attract more vagrants here. But the incumbents and a few other candidates say Santa Monica’s warm weather and its geographical location — on the edge of the West Coast and at the end of the bus line — are contributing factors. “We don’t have borders in California,” said first-time candidate Patricia Hoffman. “We attract people not because of our social services, there are circumstances beyond our control.”

McCarthy — who set the policies and priorities. As a result, the police department’s hands are tied. “The city needs to make a decision: Are they going to enforce the laws or not and then empower the police to do it?” Cole said. Incumbents say they would like to be more aggressive, but there are challenges to catching people breaking laws that are aimed to curb anti-social behavior. City Councilman Mike Feinstein said it’s difficult in a city the size of Santa Monica to arrest everyone who urinates in public or panhandles. “For a city so big, it’s not the first thing (police) are going to respond to,” he said. “You have to be there to see somebody (break the law).” He added that he trusts Moutrie’s knowledge and legal advice on Constitutional rights. Genser agreed. “It’s her job to advise us if we get into legal trouble,” he said. “She is very responsible for the City Council.” Candidate Bobby Shriver, a descendant of the Kennedys, was asked by the com-

association, Lipka felt stultified in a system where the bottom line was only profit. He wanted something that expressed his desire to make a difference in society as a whole, a job that gave him a sense of fulfillment and purpose. Four years ago, Lipka quit his job so he could become the CEO of “Step Up on Second,” a non-profit organization based in Santa Monica that helps people with debilitating mental illness reintegrate into society. The social service agency is celebrating its 20th anniversary later this month. The organization is unique because it’s not a one-issue entity. It attacks the escalating problem of mental illness from a variety of angles, providing a comprehensive program of life skills. Lipka’s motivations are much different now. As head of the human resources company, he would often have to book “big name” speakers for seminars who were paid hefty sums for a one-hour speech. Often they spoke of vision statements. “A lot of organizations talk about vision and don’t really see much at all,” he said. “They develop a vision statement because someone thought it was a good idea to have a vision statement. “In circumstances like that, a vision statement impairs your sight because it’s just a statement, not a commitment.” The 51-year-old Lipka grew up in Boston, where he knew from an early age that he was more interested in human relationships than in intellectual pursuits. Possibly his mother’s struggle with alcoholism shaped an observant tendency about the subtleties of human interactions, along with an interest to help those with addictions and afflictions rather than judge them. Not clear about what he wanted to do when he reached college age, Lipka majored in sociology. While in his junior year, his father got sick and was hospitalized for a long period of time. As he spent much time visiting his father, Lipka saw that a huge population of elderly languished in the hospital with no stimulation or interaction. “I saw that, oh my God, there are just hundreds and hundreds of older people in the hospital, and they are just starved for attention,” he said. “I spent a lot of time with one elderly woman and got to know her very well. It started to click for me that this could be a career. It was a growing field because at that time there were a lot of horror stories out there like elderly people having to eat dog food to survive.” He went on to get a master’s degree in gerontology at the University of Southern California. Although he no longer works with the elderly anymore, Lipka brings a wealth of nuanced experiences from the years he spent in community service to the aged. He spoke to the Daily Press about what keeps him doing such a difficult job in which the largely intangible rewards are far and few between. What got you interested in helping people suffering from mental illnesses? “I had worked in aging services, working with the elderly since the ’70s, and had spent a number of years in the aging service network and decided that really I wanted to try something new. I had done a lot of different things within the aging care field on the East Coast. So I was looking for a new field of community ser-

vice, knowing I wanted to stay in community service. There’s actually a lot of parallels between mental health and aging. I actually have an M.S.G. — an M.S. in gerontology and public administration. There is a tremendous need.” Do you have any history of mental illness in your family? “No, I was really looking for a great organization and Step Up had a rich history of pioneering work. At the time the board was not necessarily looking for someone with a background in mental health but rather for someone to help move the organization to the next level.” What is your favorite thing about doing this kind of work? “The sense of everything I do is contributing to something really important in our community, and the people are really appreciative of our service and can really use the service to improve their lives. There are wonderful stories of people who have moved from being homeless. Like we had one member who had been homeless 15 years. And after his being involved with our organization, he got to the point to where he wanted to try living in an apartment or a room, and the first month he was probably going out every night because he couldn’t stay indoors all night. Now, maybe every two or three weeks he can’t stay in all night. It’s amazing, you know, someone who moved from being homeless for so long has moved to being in a stable housing situation.” What is your least favorite aspect of the job? “There aren’t many things I don’t like about it. Some of the drudgery of writing minutes and reports, organizing the paper work, or rehashing something you’ve already done. Those are my weaknesses.” What did you like about working with the elderly? “There was a great need. And the genuiness. An early mentor once described older people as ‘people, only more so.’ All of those qualities that make us human ... they were just more accessible and more honest about it, and I spent my first three years doing direct service, case managing or working directly with the people in need managing their cases, but I wanted to be more on the administrative side. Now I have both, being able to have the personal connection but not at the level of a case manager. How hands-on is your job? “It’s a nice balance. I spend time in all aspects of the organization, with the members and the staff. I know a lot of the members, but not all of them. It’s enough to keep in touch and know what’s going on but still do my administrative work. For instance, there’s a lot of traffic through my office because mine is between two others.” How many people do you oversee and what services do you provide? “There are 60 staff members and 1,200 members, and a budget of over $4.5 million, mostly from various government sources. Our program is a psycho-social model and is very cost effective compared to hospitalization. Research shows that the most effective form of treatment in terms of relapses are for people to be involved in a psycho-social program, along with medication. We are a comprehensive program that covers a broad range of aspects of life. We have a conveSee PROFILES, page 9

nience store run by the members and a catering service which provides meals everyday, 365 days a year, breakfast and dinner, which is about 40,000 meals. All made by members. “We have several computers and teach various classes on journal writing, computer skills, communication skills, job interview skills, etc. We also have a closet with many clothes for the members to use for job interviews. There’s laundry facilities, showers and a cafeteria.” What percentage of your clientele are homeless? “Forty-five percent of our members are homeless. But they are not obvious homeless people. The people you see hanging out on the Promenade or sleeping in the doorways — those are not typically our homeless members. If you walk through our facilities you can’t always tell who is homeless and who is not.” What kind of person does it take to do this kind of work? “Someone who has a sense of self enough so they don’t lose themselves completely. And someone who is committed to a higher purpose than simple self-interest. Patience. You don’t see huge gains here. One of our long-time members, we just found out the other day, he overdosed. We lose people, that’s the hard part. The average age is mid-50s, so it’s an older population. Many have had addictions and been homeless for many years. And there are safety issues, not just for the members, but also for the staff. We

never had anything bad happen, but we’re careful. It’s not the kind of work for everyone.” Do you have a favorite story about your experience in this job? “A member from ‘Daniel’s Place’ (a program of Step Up that targets 18 to 30year-olds who are having their first mental illness experience), a young kid who had attempted suicide a couple of times, and after being in our program for a while, his mother told us she almost didn’t recognize him. He looked so different. We helped him get a job, and he loved it. He was so excited to go to work. But it wasn’t just the job, but all of the support and attention he got from the program, and in all of those other ways, for him as a person.”

What changes have you seen in the organization over the last 20 years and where do you see it going in the next 20? “It’s created a warm, supportive place for people to come where they could be themselves, a place where they could get away from the stigma. There were very few resources when it was founded. Our vision includes more permanent housing and growing the number of units. If you talk to any professional, housing is the most critical need. So we may have a couple of more buildings just for housing. Also, a larger media presence to educate the public about mental health issues. We’ll take more of an active role in the future. I’d like to have the whole block. We almost doubled the size in the last four years.”

Deportation victims seek redress for old wrongs BY BEN FOX Associated Press Writer

LOS ANGELES — Ignacio Pina was 6 when immigration officers came to his Montana home, held his family behind bars for a week, then herded them onto a train bound for Mexico — a country he and his five siblings had never seen. “They just kicked us out with what we were wearing,” the U.S.-born Pina recalls more than 70 years later. It was 1931, the first year of a decade-long effort to remove Mexicans to free up jobs in a U.S. economy mired in the Great Depression. Estimates of the number of people caught in the raids range from 50,000 to 2 million, with researchers agreeing that they included tens of thousands of legal immigrants, as well as children like Pina who were born in the United States. “Mexican Repatriation,” authorized by President Hoover and carried out in cooperation with local authorities, targeted areas with large Hispanic populations, mostly in California, Texas and Michigan. It left festering emotional wounds that for many have still not healed. Pina, an 80-year-old retired railroad worker who lives in Bakersfield, still gets angry when he recalls how his family was uprooted and forced to struggle to survive in a foreign country. “It’s a feeling I will have until I die,” he said. “This government did a very wrong thing.” He and others have long sought an apology and official acknowledgment of their plight in U.S. history books. Now, there is a chance they may get their wish. The California Legislature has passed two bills addressing the issue: One would create a privately funded commission to investigate Mexican Repatriation; the second would open a two-year window for victims to file damage claims since the statute of limitations has long since closed. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who has until the end of the month to sign the bills, has not disclosed his position but supporters are optimistic, given his recent appeal to fellow immigrants to join him in the Republican Party. “One would hope that the governor’s immigrant background would make him more sympathetic,” said Francisco Estrada, the director of public policy for the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund.

Last year, former Gov. Gray Davis vetoed legislation that would have reopened the statute of limitations for damage claims, saying it would be more efficient for the state to pay claims directly rather than through litigation. Other critics say cash-strapped governments and businesses can’t afford to compensate people for a long-ago injustice. “This may sound insensitive, but we do have other pressing problems that we have to attend to at this time,” said state Sen. Bill Morrow, a Republican who voted against both repatriation bills in the Legislature. Supporters of the measures compare the survivors of the repatriation to the Japanese-Americans held at internment camps during World War II who received an apology and $20,000 in reparations from the U.S. government in 1988. U.S. Rep. Hilda Solis, D-El Monte, plans to introduce a bill in Congress this year that would investigate the Depression-era deportations and consider whether reparations would be appropriate. One challenge is that the number of survivors is unknown. Many who were deported never returned to the United States. Those who did are scattered. State Sen. Joseph Dunn, a Democrat who authored the two state repatriation bills and has researched the topic for two years, estimates that perhaps 50,000 are still alive, although his office has compiled a list of barely two dozen. Another question is how much to pay people forced to give up homes and businesses and make a new start in an impoverished country. “There is no dollar amount that could compensate them for what they went through,” said Francisco Balderrama, a professor and co-author of “Decade of Betrayal,” a book about the repatriation program. Still, Dunn argues that the United States has an obligation to address the issue, in part to prevent the future mass deportation of a single ethnic group. “This is a forgotten injustice that needs to be corrected,” he said. Survivors, meanwhile, say they are eager to see official acknowledgment of their losses. But it needs to happen fast. One of Pina’s brothers has died and he says three of his sisters, who live in Arizona, have health problems. Ruben Jimenez of Whittier, an 80-year-old retired proba-

tion officer whose family was forced to leave in 1932, is the only one of nine siblings still living. Others tell of similar losses and favor dropping claims for reparations to save time. “If I were to get compensation, it wouldn’t help me much because by the time I get it, I’ll be dead,” said Jose Lopez, 77, a retired auto worker in Detroit. “Really, all I want to do is tell the public what happened because a lot of people don’t know.” It is a common refrain among the survivors, who say the public is largely unaware of their struggles. Pina, who was born in Carbon City, Utah, says he was unable to speak Spanish adequately when he arrived in Mexico and he and his siblings were very different culturally from native-born Mexicans. “They looked at us like freaks,” he recalls. “We didn’t belong there.” His father came to the United States around 1907 and, after working for years as a miner in Utah, eventually found work at a sugar beet farm near Hamilton, Mont., where immigration agents rounded up the family. When they returned to Mexico, his father died and he went to work as a shoeshine boy to help support his siblings, never attending school beyond sixth grade. In 1945, the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City issued him an affidavit confirming his birth in the United States and he returned to the country the following year, eventually settling in California’s Central Valley, working for the railroad and raising four children with his wife. The memory of his family’s upheaval, he says, remains fresh. “I’m 80 years old and I probably don’t have much longer in this world,” he said. “But how can I forget that?”

Donor to secretary of state’s campaign to testify at grand jury By The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO — A contractor who gave $25,000 to the 2002 campaign of Secretary of State Kevin Shelley was subpoenaed to testify before a federal grand jury investigating whether funds were illegally funneled to the former lawmaker, a newspaper reported. Joseph Chen, president of Cabrillo Construction, will testify he was acting as an intermediary after receiving a payment from a San Francisco nonprofit group, his attorney told the San Francisco Chronicle in a report published Saturday. Attorney Chris Moscone said Chen was following instructions, but he declined to say who gave the orders. Chen is one of several people whose donations are being scrutinized by state and federal investigators as they try to determine whether taxpayer money from a state grant was used to fund Shelley’s campaign. Several witnesses have been subpoenaed to appear Sept. 23 in U.S. District Court in Sacramento to testify before a grand jury. Chen would be the first to acknowledge that his donation came from another source — a taxpayer-funded nonprofit group run by San Francisco Julie Lee, a political ally of Shelley’s. While Shelley was majority leader of the state Assembly in 2000, he helped arrange a $500,000 state grant for Lee’s nonprofit group, San Francisco Neighbors Resource Center, the Chronicle reported. Lee used the money to pay tens of thousands of dollars to several people for work related to construction of the center, which was never built. Several recipients who have been called to testify gave Shelley’s campaign amounts nearly identical to the checks they received from the nonprofit: ■ Cabrillo Construction received $30,000 from Lee’s nonprofit center on Oct. 30, 2002. Two days later, Cabrillo donated $25,000 to Shelley. ■ Steve Chen, who described himself in state campaign finance filings as a produce company executive and is unrelated to Joseph Chen, received a $25,000 check from the center Dec. 1, 2001. On Dec. 28, he donated an identical amount to Shelley’s campaign.

NATIONAL

Shifting positions common to both candidates BY TOM RAUM Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON — While working relentlessly to portray Democratic Sen. John Kerry as a “flip-flopper,” President Bush has his own history of changing his position, from reversals on steel tariffs and “nation-building” to reasons for invading Iraq. Most recently, Bush did an about-face on whether the proposed new director of national intelligence should have full budget-making powers as the bipartisan Sept. 11 commission recommended. Bush at first indicated no, then last week said yes. Just as GOP efforts to question Kerry’s military record in Vietnam helped revive nagging questions about Bush’s service in the Air National Guard, the “flip flop” attacks on Kerry could boomerang against an incumbent running on his record and reputation as a straight talker. “The guy who is the ultimate flip and flop is this sitting president,” said Democratic Sen. Joseph Biden of Delaware. Yet so far Democratic efforts to paint Bush as “FlipFlopper-in-Chief,” as one Democratic news release put it, have not seemed to have had much impact on the race. Republicans have been driving home their depiction of Kerry as a flip-flopper for months, in campaign ads, speeches and interviews. And polls suggest this line of attack is working. Far more voters give Bush high marks for being decisive than they do Kerry. Three-fourths, 75 percent, in the latest Associated Press-Ipsos poll said the president is decisive, up 7 percentage points from August, while 37 percent said Kerry is decisive, down 7 percentage points from a month ago. Republican audiences chant “flip-flopper” when

Kerry is mentioned, some political novelty stores are carrying flip-flop sandals bearing Kerry’s picture, and the theme is reinforced by late-night comedians. “Gee, I wonder if Bush will say the ‘F’ in John F. Kerry stands for flip-flop,” said NBC’s Jay Leno after Kerry last week suggested the “W” in George W. Bush stood for “wrong.” If he is a flip-flopper, Kerry has company. ■ In 2000, Bush argued against new military entanglements and nation building. He’s done both in Iraq. ■ He opposed a Homeland Security Department, then embraced it. ■ He opposed creation of an independent Sept. 11 commission, then supported it. He first refused to speak to its members, then agreed only if Vice President Dick Cheney came with him. ■ Bush argued for free trade, then imposed three-year tariffs on steel imports in 2002, only to withdraw them after 21 months. ■ Last month, he said he doubted the war on terror could be won, then reversed himself to say it could and would. ■ A week after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, Bush said he wanted Osama bin Laden “dead or alive.” But he told reporters six months later, “I truly am not that concerned about him.” He did not mention bin Laden in his hourlong convention acceptance speech. “I’m a war president,” Bush told NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Feb. 8. But in a July 20 speech in Iowa, he said: “Nobody wants to be the war president. I want to be the peace president.” Bush keeps revising his Iraq war rationale: The need to seize Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction until none were found; liberating the Iraqi people from a

brutal dictator; fighting terrorists in Iraq not at home; spreading democracy throughout the Middle East. Now it’s a safer America and a safer world. “No matter how many times Senator Kerry flip-flops, we were right to make America safer by removing Saddam Hussein from power,” he said last week in Missouri. Bush has changed his positions on new Clean Air Act restrictions, protecting the Social Security surplus, tobacco subsidies, the level of assistance to help combat AIDs in Africa, campaign finance overhaul and whether to negotiate with North Korean officials. But while Bush’s policy shifts have been numerous and notable, Democrats haven’t succeeded yet in tarring him as a flip flopper, said American University political scientist James Thurber. “Kerry has made some statements about it, but he doesn’t have a clear strategy for hammering back at the flip flops of the president,” Thurber said. The sustained Bush attack draws on Kerry’s 20-year Senate record, with special emphasis on his votes to authorize force in Iraq in 2002 and against final passage last year of an $87 billion aid package for Iraq and Afghanistan. Kerry didn’t help himself by explaining that he first supported an amendment to provide the $87 billion by rolling back Bush’s tax cuts. “I actually did vote for the $87 billion before I voted against it,” he said. The Bush campaign turned the quote into an ad. Bush aides brush off suggestions by Democrats that the real flip-flopper is Bush, not Kerry. “One moment they say the president’s too stubborn and the next day accuse him of being a flip-flopper. It’s generated to a point of incoherence,” said Bush campaign spokesman Steve Schmidt.

Bob (Robert E.) Morton, a beloved and renowned community volunteer, left his loved ones on Sunday, September 5, 2004, to begin his next journey that would re-unite with many family members and friends that have passed on before. Bob was born in the Bronx, New York, on August 19, 1932, as the only child of Mildred (Callahan) and John Morton. Bob’s long-standing service and devotion to his fellow man began in the early 1950s when he served his country in the U.S. Navy during the Korean War. Upon the conclusion of his military duty, Bob moved to Los Angeles, which he would call home for the rest of his life. In California, Bob began a long career as an accountant for Paper Mate Pens, a position he would hold for 34 years until his retirement in 1987. It was in his later years when Bob began what he called his second, but even more rewarding career, as a community volunteer throughout the City of Los Angeles. Bob volunteered infinite hours of his time and his passion to the successful organization and implementation of such well-known and time-honored events as the Hollywood Christmas Parade, the Los Angeles Marathon, and the Jimmy Stewart Relay Marathon. Bob was also active with The Thalians. One of Bob’s favorite memories as a volunteer took place
