Surgeons have reattached many penises (in the cases of accidents, self-mutilations or angry wives’ vengeance), but the first successful transplant of the organ, to the point in which blood and urine flow were regenerated, was performed this summer in a 15-hour procedure at Guangzhou General Hospital in China. Although the patient was left functional, he and his wife, two weeks later, citing “psychological” reasons, ordered the new organ removed. (A formal report is to appear this month in the journal European Urology.)

MID-CITY — Following eight decades of serving the community in times of crisis and despair, it was a decidedly different scene on 16th Street Sunday, when the Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center served as party central. Hospital officials staged a massive birthday bash, closing off the street between Wilshire Boulevard and Arizona Avenue to traffic for more than four hours, in celebration of providing health services to the community for 80 years. Hundreds of former and current patients, doctors and other UCLA affiliates flocked to the festival, where they were offered free food and drinks, medical services, music, games and other activities. “We’re absolutely overwhelmed by the local turnout,” said Posie Carpenter, Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center’s chief administrative officer. “We have people from all

CITYWIDE — When the Vons supermarket on Wilshire Boulevard celebrated its grand opening earlier this year, the store purchased 250 new shopping carts. Within three months, the carts were gone. Over at Ralphs, 1644 Cloverfield Boulevard, an average of 10 shopping carts went missing every day. That is, until about two months ago. Both supermarkets have enjoyed a

dramatic decline in stolen cart incidents since installing a high-tech, antitheft locking device that activates a brake in the cart’s wheel once it reaches the store’s parking lot perimeters. Just think of it as an electric fence for wayward shoppers. “The problem is less than it used to be before we used the device,” said Ralphs Manager Alberto Maldonado. Since this summer, the new carts at Vons have come equipped with Gatekeeper System’s GS2 locking

device, which automatically activates a brake in one of the four wheels in the cart once it hits a precision boundary that is defined by cables embedded inside the parking lot surface. The carts can be unlocked with a remote control cart key. “Everyone can install these, from 99 Cents Only Stores to Wal-Mart and Target

to Vons to Cost Plus World Market,” said Renice Stewart, of Gatekeeper Systems. According to Gatekeeper, an average shopping cart that lacks the anti-theft system can cost anywhere from $75 to $100. Retailers nationwide lose more than $200 million in shopping cart thefts every year. In Santa Monica, the police See CART SMARTS, page 13

COMMUNITY BRIEFS Don’t know Jack? Take a hack with these carving tips By Daily Press staff

Some tips, secrets and tricks that will enable you to carve pumpkins that will be the envy of the neighborhood. ■ How to pick a good pumpkin for carving: Look for one that is a little misshapen and will lend itself to interesting facial features. Reject any pumpkin with soft spots. ■ Hollow or whole? Hollow it out if the inside is going to be exposed or to illuminate the pumpkin from the inside. ■ The tools to use: Use a water-based marker to outline the face that you want to carve. ■ Carve with care: Use two hands at all times. To avoid cutting yourself, use one hand to control the pressure with which you cut (and thus the depth). ■ Make a face: To achieve a three-dimensional appearance, carve the entire pumpkin, instead of just holes for the eyes and a hole for the nose. ■ Enjoy it while it lasts: Pumpkins — which are actually a fruit, not a vegetable — are 90 percent water, so they usually last only three days to a week.

P R O U D LY B R O U G H T T O Y O U B Y Doomed to repeat it? A pair of local institutions face quite opposite fates, as they grow older and their neighbors grow younger and richer. On Sunday, the Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center marked its 80th year with a street festival attended by local officials. Meanwhile, the Zephyr skateboarding shop on Main Street — regarded by many as the birthplace of modern skating — faces an uncertain future, as the building’s owner looks to redevelop the space. So this week, Q-Line wants to know: “Is Santa Monica’s history, culture and heritage properly celebrated and preserved, or should bygone

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Smoking ban is sucking life out of the city Editor:

I wish to thank the Santa Monica City Council in their infinite wisdom and moral superiority for eliminating smoking from the Promenade, outdoor patios and restaurants, and within 20 feet of doorways. Following their designation of parks, the Pier and beaches as nosmoking areas, this action reveals their profound concern for the safety and health of people in Santa Monica. Their concern for our American ideal of property rights is something to behold. The owners of businesses and restaurants can now be free to freeze out smokers from their outdoor areas and lose business and profit. They no longer have to choose whether to have a smoking establishment or not. They must be relieved that the Council makes these choices for them. Most certainly, the Santa Monica Police Department is pleased to hear that they can use their time and resources to chase down smokers instead of violent felons. I marvel at the Council’s even-handed and objective thought, as well as their lack of any political agenda in their deliberations. A fine example is Clover Park, where the leprous smokers are excluded. One sees celebratory barbecue spewing billows of blue smoke into the air while gasoline-powered mowers circle. Happy folks frolic on grass free of cigarette smoke while watching the diesel buses and thousands of cars pass by. If (the Daily Press’) readers are overweight, not to worry; I am sure our City Council is in conference at this moment considering how to protect our health and safety. Douglas Debber Santa Monica

‘Dog’ days at their tail end Editor:

I have lived in Santa Monica for 14 months — not 20 years, like many of the people quoted in your Oct. 11 article “Has Dogtown had its day?” But I was equally horrified when I parked in the lot at Horizons West earlier this month and saw the demo permit. The Horizons West/Zephyr-Dogtown building is one of my favorite in all of Santa Monica. Not because it is architecturally genius, but because of what it represents. It is a surf and skate culture icon, and it has survived these many years because there are so many people — in Ocean Park, Santa Monica and Los Angeles — who support it. Tourists I have taken there love it, and even if they didn’t know much about Dogtown and Z-Boys before they got there, they sure did when they left. History is preserved here, and I am so proud to live in a place where this still exists. Green or not, mixed residential/commercial developments are the scourge of the 21st century. They are everywhere because they are lucrative to develop, and they are, at best, mediocre when complete. Should the owner triumph and demolish the building at the corner of Main and Bay streets, a part of history and an icon of the surf and skate culture that makes Ocean Park so unique will be gone. And that, in my opinion, will be tragic. Ocean Park didn’t get its charm striving for mediocrity, and I encourage those who share this opinion to be vocal. Save this landmark before it is gone. Hannah Galloway Santa Monica

Community not offering a ‘Step Up’ Editor:

On Oct. 12, I said the following at the town hall meeting at Grant Elementary School: “Those of us who don’t have a mental disorder are only a few chemicals and electric impulses away from needing help. Not because we are virtuous, but just lucky. We might want to examine our motivations before we make decisions about the Step Up transitional housing issue. If our motivation is the ‘safety of children,’ it is quite possible that their safety is more threatened by their family or the family’s friends than by the mentally ill who are in treatment. If we don’t want to tolerate human beings with mental disorders, but who are being treated, do we then want systems in which all persons once diagnosed and before having committed a crime are removed from our midst? Systems like that have existed. We usually condemn them. If, on the other hand, our motivation is the ‘loss of property value,’ we should get real figures and measure them against our Judeo-Christian values we so often quote.” After listening to many who oppose Step Up’s presence on Pearl (Street), I came away with the following impressions: None of the opponents were without legitimate concerns; all who opposed spoke of their compassion for the mentally ill and of their admiration for the work Step Up does, but no one offered anything but “just not here . . . elsewhere.” However, compassion without action is utterly meaningless. Would it be possible for the opponents, proponents, Step Up, local real estate brokers and City Council to quickly create a task force that would help identify and purchase a location in which Step Up would be welcome? Step Up could then sell the Pearl property. If the entire community cannot find that place, we might as well give up our romance with “community.” We seem to be ill at ease with disease. We seem to think that our generosity ought to be rationed lest we become too generous. The meeting was informative, civilized and extremely saddening.

Give him his Props: Ballot is ‘mixed bag’ MY WRITE BY BILL BAUER

There are five local measures on the November ballot. Most of them will cost you money. Measure U would remove City department heads from civil service and empower the City Manager to replace poor administrators and make other changes related to promotion and hiring. No taxpayer costs here, just a more efficient City Hall. Vote “Yes.”

Proposition W is the City Council-concocted “Good Government Act of 2006” to water down stringent campaign reform approved by 60 percent of the voters in 2000. Promoting “W” are three of our most well-financed City Councilpersons — Richard Bloom, Bobby Shriver and Mayor Robert Holbrook, as well as big money special interests. The current law prevents public officials from taking campaign cash, gifts or a job from a company that received a city benefit, such as a tax break or city contract. Prop W would allow council members to go to work directly for developers after approving their projects and accept gifts (kickbacks) from corporations and individuals doing business with the city that might benefit from their votes. Prop W proponents say the current law is “too restrictive,” and there’s “no graft or corruption” in City Hall. Yet, city politicians waged an expensive four-year court battle to toss out the original voter approved campaign reform law — and lost. Unwilling to accept the will of the voters and the courts, they arrogantly created Proposition W to enlarge campaign war chests and stay in power. That speaks for itself. As far as corruption today, a “No” vote on “W” will help prevent it tomorrow.

Prop Y is the marijuana initiative that mandates the possession (any amount) of weed for personal use by an adult shall have the lowest law enforcement priority. While I think that often too many law enforcement resources are spent on minor infractions like possession of small amounts of pot, I’m supporting our police department by opposing MUSM: BF: OLL: POS: WTGP: LMIRL: HDOP:

Ursula Fox Santa Monica

“Y” because holding small amounts of grass is already a low priority here. If approved, the poorly written Measure Y would create an expensive bureaucratic nightmare with more paperwork and reports, probable establishment of an oversight review panel, prohibit cooperation with federal agencies on marijuana offenses and require City Council semiannual reviews of pot arrests. Another City Hall bureaucracy and money drain? Heck, no. Smoke “Y” by voting “No.” Proposition BB is the Santa MonicaMalibu school construction measure. This would allow the district to issue a whopping $268 million worth of bonds whose interest and costs would be born by both homeowners and renters through yet another unfair tax assessment. Proponents say this bond is the first of two expensive issues contemplated by the District. It’s important to support our schools, which is why we’ve already approved one “repair” bond and two parcel taxes, recently. Now, school lobbyists are floating this bond proposal and will float another $200 million plus bond measure and push renewal of the two existing parcel tax measures a couple of years from now. A few months ago, school supporters drew up a list of needs — a “wish list” filling three thick notebooks. It’s a fat-stuffed menu of dreams by district administrators and school lobbyists with no basis in reality. We all want safe schools and a pleasant learning environment, but “BB” is unrealistic and excessive. City housing policies have resulted in hundreds of new families with school-aged children moving into city-sponsored housing projects, annually. And, the district issues annual permits to thousands of nonresident students to attend our schools. This contributes substantially to overcrowding and financial shortfalls — two of the reasons for all the spending and Measure BB. But, City Hall isn’t being asked to back this bond, individual property owners, renters, seniors, singles and the elderly are. Less than 20 percent of Santa Monica and Malibu households have children in the district, yet, because of district waste and mismanagement, we keep the money pit filled. A “No” vote on BB will stop the profligate spending without accountability and force them to come back with a definitive and realistic project list and a more reasonable dollar figure.

BUZZ’IN SANTA MONICA

Are You Ready? Hypnotherapy can help you turn on the no-smoking sign for good

... The Buzz-saw was approached by a seemingly innocuous gent this week and told the other man had just had an “epiphany.” “Have you had such epiphanies? Such moments of clarity?” Clarity may not be the Buzz’s strong suit, but he still offered a hopeful “um, maybe.” “There is no room for ‘maybes’ in my life!” And with that, pseudo-Socrates was gone. In a decided huff. While such conversations are disturbingly routine for the Buzzcut, the ensuing sticking point has been thus: Was the fact that said wise man had no room for ‘maybes’ in his life indeed his epiphany? If so, could he have had such clarity before laying it on the Buzz in the first place? Such brain boondoggles take much out of Buzz. Mental weariness ensues ... ... Seated outside the Snug Harbor breakfast cafe on Wilshire this past Sunday was an intentionally bald young man sporting trendy shades. While Buzzworthy in and of its Vin Diesel-self, the follicly challenged, muscle-laden dude carried on an unrelated discourse with his apparent girlfriend; all the while she rubbed his head like she was polishing a cue ball at House of Billiards. Both

... Spotted trying to film a movie in and around the Third Street Promenade this week was Owen Wilson, he who gave us such fare as “Anaconda,” “The Minus Man” and “Shanghai Noon” ... and maybe some others. The Buzzman Cometh only wanted to lurk a bit, but all the film crew wanted to do “was make a movie.” Buzz was told he was ruining their shot. (Insert weepy music and tear here). If you cut Buzz, does he not bleed? ... ... In the odd-song-to-be-singing-whilewalking-dow n-the-Promenade-on-aSunday-evening-in-2006 department: Buzzerbeater was taken aback and taken back, all at the same time, by the sights and sounds of a man with creative facial hair getting his Traveling Wilburys on. Hey, “Tweeter and the Monkey Man” ain’t “Blowin’ in the Wind,” but an obscure ’80s Dylan b-side blew Buzz’s skirt up a bit ... so to speak ... ... Heard the one about the old man lining up an interview with a new reporter? “You can’t miss me. I’ll be the 80-yearold sitting in Izzy’s Deli.” Less the Waldo shirt, let’s just say the subject blended in a bit. Might as well been bedecked in camouflage. Sometimes sarcasm is a hard thing to detect. If you aren’t careful, it’ll drip all over you ... kinda like that stubborn stain on Buzz’s — oh, whatever ...

Ex-Navy admiral to lead LA school district BY ANA BEATRIZ CHOLO Associated Press Writer

LOS ANGELES — A former Navy admiral has agreed to take the helm of the country’s second-largest school district amid a power struggle among elected officials over control of the $13 billion system and debate on how well it educates some three-quarters of a million students. Retired Vice Adm. David L. Brewer III, 60, was introduced Friday by the seven-member Board of Education, which voted unanimously in closed session Thursday to start contract negotiations with him for the superintendent’s job. Brewer, a 35-year veteran, will become the second African-American to lead the Los Angeles Unified School District and will continue a national trend of non-educators leading schools. He follows on the heels of former Colorado Gov. Roy Romer who is expected to retire next month as superintendent. The eight-month search for a new superintendent ends just days after the school district filed a lawsuit claiming a school reform bill giving Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa some power in the district is unconstitutional.

The law, scheduled to take effect in January, gives some authority to a council of mayors encompassing Los Angeles and more than two-dozen other cities served by the Los Angeles Unified School District. Although Brewer’s resume and charismatic demeanor impressed members of the board and the selection committee tasked with finding the district’s next leader, he will be walking into a political firestorm. He said he is prepared: Interracting with members of Congress helped him hone his political skills. Brewer oversaw the Military Sealift Command before retiring in March, managing a supply chain for equipment, fuel and ammunition for U.S. forces worldwide. At the press conference, where he took on the tone of a preacher, Brewer said his DNA has prepared him well for the job — his entire family, including his wife and parents, are educators. “You can’t keep doing the same thing and expect different results,” he said confidently of his goals for the district. “I am not a reformer, I am a transformer. I am going to transform this district. We are going to shoot for world class.” Among items on his agenda, he said, are to go to into the

streets and into churches to recruit parents and community leaders to help children. The district, with more than 727,000 students, more than 1,130 schools and 78,000 employees, is also plagued with a dismal graduation rate and an astronomical dropout rate. Test scores, in the years since Romer inherited the district in 2000, have been slowly inching up. Romer is also behind a construction boom that is adding 150 new schools. Brewer said he is also anxious to meet Villaraigosa, who has expressed disappointment with being excluded from the hiring process. The mayor is away on a trade mission to Asia. “I want to partner with you, I want to join you in helping to educate the children of this district,” he said. Matt Szabo, Villaraigosa’s spokesman, said his boss wants to reach out to Brewer regardless and learn of his qualifications and philosophy when he returns from Asia. “The mayor is eager to discuss how he and the superintendent can build a forward-looking partnership to implement (the reform law) and to bring positive change for the students and families of L.A. Unified,” Szabo said. Brewer was born in Virginia and raised in Orlando, Fla. He currently lives in Virginia.

Teen draws attention for MySpace threats to Bush BY DON THOMPSON Associated Press Writer

SACRAMENTO — Upset by the war in Iraq, Julia Wilson vented her frustrations with President Bush last spring on her MySpace.com page. She posted a picture of the president, scrawled “Kill Bush” across the top and drew a dagger stabbing his outstretched hand. She replaced the page last spring after learning in her eighth-grade history class that such threats are a federal offense. Too late. Federal authorities had found the page and placed her on their checklist. They finally reached her this week in her molecular biology class. The 14-year-old freshman at Sacramento’s McClatchy High School was taken out of class Wednesday and questioned for about 15 minutes by two Secret Service agents. The incident has upset her parents, who said the agents should have included them when they questioned their daughter. On Friday, the teenager said the agents’ questioning over her page on the popular teenage Internet gathering spot led her to tears. “I wasn’t dangerous. I mean, look at what’s (stenciled) on

my backpack — it’s a heart. I’m a very peace-loving person,” said Wilson, an honor student who describes herself as politically passionate. “I’m against the war in Iraq. I’m not going to kill the president.” Her mother, Kirstie Wilson, said two agents showed up at the family’s home in the city’s upscale Land Park neighborhood Wednesday afternoon, questioned her and promised to return once her daughter was home from school. After they left, Kirstie Wilson sent a text message to her daughter’s cell phone, telling her to come straight home: “there are two men from the secret service that want to talk with you. Apparently you made some death threats against president bush,” the message read. “Are you serious!?!? omg. Am I in a lot of trouble?” her daughter wrote back, using shorthand for “Oh, my God.” Moments later, Kirstie Wilson received another text message from her daughter saying agents had pulled her out of class. Julia Wilson said the agents threatened her by saying she could be sent to juvenile hall for making the threat. “They yelled at me a lot,” she said. “They were unnecessarily mean.” Julia and her parents said the agents were justified in questioning her over her MySpace.com posting. But they said they believe agents went too far by not waiting until she was out of school and questioning her without a parent present. They also said the agents should have more quickly figured out they weren’t dealing with a real danger. Ultimately, the agents told the teenager they would delete her investigation file. “She obviously is not a threat to society, if you look at her age, her family background, the cartoonish nature of the

MySpace page,” said her ON THE NET father, Jim Moose, an enviRead SB660 ronmental law attorney. www.sen.ca.gov “She is just a typical teenage girl who made a mistake,” said her mother during an interview at their neatly landscaped home. “My blood is boiling that they went behind my back.” Assistant Principal Paul Belluomini said the agents gave him the impression the girl’s mother knew they were planning to question her daughter at school. There is no legal requirement that parents be notified. “This has been an ongoing problem,” said Ann Brick, an attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union in San Francisco. Former governors Pete Wilson and Gray Davis vetoed bills that would have required that parents give consent or be present when their children are questioned at school by law enforcement officers. A similar bill this year cleared the state Senate but died in the Assembly. Spokesmen for the Secret Service in Sacramento and Washington, D.C., said they could not comment. McClatchy senior Ted Prickett went out of his way to shake Julia Wilson’s hand Friday outside the high school. “I may be against her for what she said about Bush, but she stood up for free speech,” Prickett said. Julia Wilson is planning to post a new MySpace.com page, this one devoted to organizing other students to protest the Iraq war. “I decided today I think I will because it (the questioning) went too far,” she said.

WASHINGTON — West Coast ports that handle much of the nation’s shipped goods — and which are considered prime terrorist targets — praised a law signed Friday that aims to reinforce the safety of the 11 million containers entering the country each year. President Bush signed the SAFE Port Act that aims to prevent terrorists from smuggling a nuclear bomb or other weapons in cargo containers from overseas. “Our seaports are a gateway to commerce, a source of opportunity, and a provider of jobs,” Bush said. “Our ports could also be a target of a terrorist attack, and we’re determined to protect them.” Bush said the new act requires radiationdetection technology at 22 of the nation’s busiest ports by the end of next year. In addition, background checks and credentials will be required for workers at the nation’s 361 ports. The bill is “a great step forward in enhancing port security,” said Jim McKenna, president and CEO of the Pacific Maritime Association, which represents 75 shipping companies doing business on the West Coast. He said port security must rely on new technology, and the law authorizes the development of high-tech inspection equipment so customs agents can check cargo containers without having to open them. Pilot programs would be established at three foreign ports to test the technology. "You need to stop it from ever getting on a ship, from ever getting into the country,” McKenna said. The Port of Los Angeles already scans some containers for radiation and has a pilot program for worker identification and back-

ground checks, spokeswoman Theresa Adams Lopez said. Coast Guard and other agents also board cruise ships and some cargo vessels for inspection before they arrive in port. “Definitely it’s something we’re happy about,” she said of the new law. The adjoining ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach are the fifth busiest port complex in the world, handling more than 43 percent of the nation’s cargo containers — about 14.3 million each year. Arif Ghouse, security director for the Port of Seattle, said the port would be able to detect radiation leakage from any container, as required under the law, by December. “We’ve been waiting for this for quite a while, so it’s nice to see it’s gone through,” Ghouse said of the act. The Port of Oakland plans to apply for the federal grant money to invest in new screening technology. According to a Rand Corp. study released in August, a nuclear explosion at the Port of Long Beach could kill 60,000 people immediately, expose 150,000 more to hazardous radiation and cause 10 times more economic loss than the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Meanwhile, there were hints of the economic damage an attack could cause in the 2002 dockworker lockout, Lopez said. The 10-day action shut down 29 ports from San Diego to Seattle and cost the nation’s fragile economy up to $2 billion a day. Congress approved the bill two weeks ago before lawmakers left to campaign for the Nov. 7 midterm elections in which national security, the war in Iraq and terrorism are major issues. Democrats favored the bill, but said it failed to address rail and mass transit, other areas considered highly vulnerable to terrorists.

YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. — Officials plan to trigger controlled avalanches at Sylvan Pass in Yellowstone National Park this winter by dropping explosives from a helicopter while cutting back on the use of an aging 105 mm howitzer. Park officials have been trying to reduce the use of the howitzer for years because they say it’s unsafe for employees and often shoots shells that do not immediately explode, but could detonate later. “If this was an easy problem to be solved, it would’ve been solved a decade ago,” said Steve Swanke, acting health and safety manager at Yellowstone. “It’s far from that.” The park has contracted with a Bozeman company for the past two years to perform

helicopter missions over Sylvan Pass, on the route into the park from Yellowstone’s east entrance, to drop explosives that trigger avalanches. The missions prevent snow from building up that could later fall unexpectedly on visitors or workers. Swanke said the helicopter will be used again this winter. He said the howitzer will be used only in limited cases, such as when bad weather or another emergency keeps the helicopter from flying avalanche missions. “I think we’re going to lean a little heavier on the helicopter this year than we did last year,” Swanke said. Park officials estimate there are as many as 300 unexploded howitzer shells in the hills around Sylvan Pass from years of using the howitzer. The pass was closed for a day last spring after a construction worker found an unexploded shell on the road.

Web site sheds light FIRST CLASS FREE! for aurora watchers LEARN WHAT TO DO, IF YOU HAVE TO MODERN DAY BRAZILIAN BY MARY PEMBERTON

ON THE NET

Associated Press Writer

http://www.gedds.alaska.edu/AuroraForecast/

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A Web site is taking some of the guesswork out of when to make a Thermos of hot coffee, throw on a scarf and venture out into the cold night to take in the northern lights — even if you’re far away from the aurora epicenter in Alaska. The Geophysical Institute at the University of Alaska Fairbanks has revamped its Web site for aurora borealis watchers. The improved site offers interactive world maps and three forecasts: daily, extended and long-term. “This is one, if not the most, visited Web sites we have,” said Dirk Lummerzheim, a professor of the upper atmosphere at the institute, who helped revamp the Web site. The site is accessible at http://www.gedds.alaska.edu/AuroraForecast. It’s not difficult to see the northern lights in Alaska’s second largest city. Fairbanks averages about 243 nights a year of auroral activity. Only 360 miles to the south, Anchorage gets about 30 good nights a year. “The probability of seeing aurora in Fairbanks is ridiculously high,” Lummerzheim said. But the Web site also could be a valuable tool for those in the Lower 48, where sightings are far less frequent but do occur. New York and Chicago get about 10 nights of aurora activity a year, Seattle between five and 10 nights, and New Orleans and San Francisco about one glimpse of the aurora each year. Even Cuba gets the occasional display — about once every 10 years. The trick is going out when there is going to be a really good light show — on the horizon in the Lower 48, or if in Alaska, the kind of display where green and red lights arc, swirl and dance overhead in awe-inspiring displays. That’s where the institute’s revamped Web site comes in. The site was popular even before getting a new look in August, receiving about 20,000 hits a month during the fall and winter aurora-viewing season. Charles Deehr, the institute’s professor emeritus of physics, expects the Web site to draw even more interest now. That’s because the site is interactive, providing users from around the world with five different maps to choose from: Alaska, North America, Europe, North Polar and South Polar. Once a user calls up one of those maps, the Web site pulls that map up again automatically the next time that user logs on. The maps show a swath of green where the aurora borealis is active. In bold, black letters in boxes of different colors signifying auroral activity are the one-hour forecasts: green for quiet, yellow for medium and red for active. Deehr, 70, has been preparing the forecasts for more than a decade. The one-hour and 28-day forecasts are done automatically. The three- to five-day forecast is more complicated, requiring hands-on forecasting. “We make one for each day where we take everything into account that we can take into account,” Deehr said.

The one-hour forecast is pretty easy to figure out, Lummerzheim said. That’s because the U.S. has a satellite stationed between the sun and the Earth where it measures the solar wind while it is about an hour away from Earth. “The wind that comes from the sun makes the aurora. It passes this satellite one hour away from Earth,” Deehr said. “It is the condition of the solar wind that determines what kind of aurora there is going to be, how active it is going to be.” Deehr said the one-hour forecast is reliable. “You can sit inside and watch the onehour forecast and know what it is going to be like. If it says ‘quiet’ and it is 3 o’clock in the morning, go to bed,” he said. The best time normally for watching the aurora is between 10 p.m. and 2 a.m. The 28-day forecast is a rough projection that draws on past data and relies on a 28day solar rotation cycle. To do the three- to five-day forecast, scientists start by looking at the sun and the solar wind. “We can look ahead and see changes in the solar wind coming down the line that we can interpret,” Deehr said. The solar wind of magnetic and particle components blows all the time, Deehr said. It is the changes in the wind that produce the aurora. For example, solar flares produce distortions in the solar wind. “What happens is that the sun’s magnetic field hooks up with the earth’s magnetic field and starts the generator that is produced by particles flowing past the earth,” Deehr said. “It is a huge generator and it generates thousands of volts of electricity in the magnetic field of the earth. That leads to the aurora.” The electricity glowing in the earth’s atmosphere is the aurora, Deehr said. “The whole thing is driven by the solar wind interacting with the earth’s magnetic field,” he said. About 11,000 users have signed up for the Web site’s Aurora Alert service. It tells users when a really good display is likely to occur. The Web site also offers aurora watcher a forum to talk back and forth or ask questions of the scientists. “There is a lot of interaction,” Deehr said.“I notice there are some people that come back all the time and just are enthusiastic about it.” The Geophysical Institute doesn’t track how many Web users are from outside Alaska, but Kathy Bertram, the education outreach director, suspects it’s quite a few since they get so many calls from people in the Lower 48 and from other nations. The Lower 48 calls usually come after people have seen the northern lights on the horizon. The international calls flood in as people plan vacations to Alaska and want to know the forecast for aurora activity during their visit. “They want to predict three months in the future, but they understand they have a better chance of seeing it here than where they are,” Bertram said.

No token love affair on the Big Blue Bus BY KEVIN HERRERA Daily Press Staff Writer

VENICE — Without public transportation, Greg Good and Alicia Hancock may still be wandering through life looking for love. Instead, the two are planning to tie the knot next year, and they owe it all to the Big Blue Bus. The couple first met a little over two years ago while riding Big Blue’s Line 1 to UCLA, where both were studying law. While it wasn’t love at first sight, both knew there was something special about the other. “I thought he was really attractive and really nice,” Hancock said Saturday, as she gazed at her future husband, who was cuddled up next to her on a couch in the Venice apartment they share. “I mean, I was one of the only people who would actually say ‘Good Morning’ to the bus drivers when I would get on the bus. And I remember the first time I saw him, Greg had this big smile and he said ‘Good morning! How are you?’ to the bus driver. “I thought, ‘How nice.’” It took about a month, but during one of the hour-long bus rides to the Westwood campus, Good noticed Hancock’s UCLA card carrier dangling from her key-chain. “I thought, ‘That’s my in,”’ Good recalled. The two struck up a conversation and began to talk regularly whenever they would run into each other on the bus. “It was really sporadic,” Hancock said. “I

that Parks made the move to Santa Monica to be closer to her. Her work at the Visitors Center began a couple years later. Parks may be small in stature, but her thirst for knowledge is unrelenting. Through her position as a travel counselor, she continues to learn about the people and places of the city she has lived in for 21 years. The octogenarian often answers some of the email received on the Visitors Center web site. Parks sat down recently with the Daily Press to discuss her love of helping people find their way.

What do you like about Santa Monica? “It’s reminiscent of my homeland. The atmosphere is the same — the beach. I like the ocean. It’s a place where you can walk almost anywhere. I think the people are very friendly. And the weather, of course. Everybody enjoys that.” What are your favorite places in Santa Monica? “Walking on Main Street, Montana Avenue, the Promenade. I’m partial to seafood, so I like The Lobster. I like Ocean Avenue Seafood ... give them a plug.”

was in my last year, Greg in his first, so we had very different schedules. I wasn’t on campus as much as he was.” At first, their conversations were casual. The two would usually talk about school, finals and football. But after a few months, the conversations became more personal, until eventually, Good could no longer contain himself — he had to ask Hancock out on a date. “I thought she was so beautiful and so comfortable with herself that I just knew that I had to ask her out,” said the 36-year-old Good. “I told myself, ‘Greg, the next time you see her, you aren’t getting out of this bus until you ask her on a date. Period.’ So, I waited and waited until one day I saw her again and …” “He said, ‘I don’t want to be goofy, but do you want to have dinner some time?’” recalled the 27-year-old Hancock. “Is that what I said?” Good asked, looking a little embarrassed. “Now, that’s goofy.” Hancock, who admits she was “oblivious” to Good’s attraction, said “yes” and the two decided to meet for sushi. They hit it off immediately and have been virtually inseparable ever since, eventually deciding to move in together about a year ago. “I think we’re both relationship-phobes and I know I had become quite cynical about relationships, but we just seemed to connect,” Good said. “I guess we both felt we had stumbled onto greatness.” The two talked of marriage, but it wasn’t until Hancock had lunch with some girlfriends a month or so ago that she realized

the time was right to pop the big question. “My girlfriends were both in serious relationships and we were talking about who was going to get married first, and both were like, ‘Well, I don’t think he’s going to ask,’” Hancock said. “That’s when it kind of hit me. If you’re in a relationship and you love each other and you know you want to spend the rest of your life together, why wait for the guy to ask? Why let that get in the way?” It seemed like a crazy idea at first, but Hancock knew that if she wanted ask Good to marry her, she would have to do something special. Since the two first met while riding the bus, Hancock could think of no better way to pop the big question than to rent one and trick Good into jumping aboard. “I thought it was going to be a long shot,” Hancock said. “I mean, this is a public transportation company. What were the chances of them renting one out? Well, they do.” Hancock set it up so the bus would be waiting for them at the stop on Main Street at Rose Avenue — where they first laid eyes on one another. While on a walk, Hancock pretended her ankle was bothering her. She started limping for effect and suggested they take the bus home. “It was kind of strange because the bus really wasn’t going to get us very far,” Good said. As they rounded a corner, Hancock could see the bus waiting. “I was so nervous,” Hancock said. “I mean, I knew there was like a point-one per-

cent chance that he would say ‘no,’ so I was pretty confident, but you can’t help but be nervous. Seeing the bus there waiting for us helped alleviate that somewhat, but then I still had to ask him.” Hancock pulled Good along and hopped onto the bus, her limp suddenly disappearing as she walked quickly to the back of the bus. “I’m like, ‘Why aren’t you paying? What are you doing?’” Good said. “I asked the bus driver, but he just kept looking straight and didn’t say anything. Then in one of those ‘Twilight Zone’ moments, he shut the door and took off. She’s like, ‘Come here.’ … She asked me to marry here and, of course, I said ‘yes.’” The two ended up driving through Santa Monica Canyon, along Pacific Coast Highway, ending up at Casa Del Mar Hotel for dinner. Now, every time they see a Big Blue Bus, the two can’t help but fall in love all over again. They are even considering having the bus company shuttle guests to their wedding, tentatively set for Oct. 13 of next year. “There is no question that the Big Blue Bus has resonance, appeal and affection for me,” Good said. “I think of Alicia, at least a little, every time I get on the bus.” Same goes for Hancock. “I have traveled all over the world, but my most important trip was the one-hour route from Venice to UCLA,” she said. “And my heart is indebted to the Big Blue.”

How did you end up working at the Visitors Center? “I went by the kiosk in Palisades Park, and I was asking about the area and the attractions here, like the Pier. I got talking to the lady that was there at the time, and several times when I’d pass by, I’d stop by and have a little chat. One time, I had nothing to do, and I said, “Do you ever have any parttime positions?” And she said, “Well, I have just engaged a young man. I don’t need anyone at the moment, but give me your name and telephone number, and should such an occasion come up, I’ll call you.” Well, I never did hear from her for about 18 months. But she did call, and asked if I was still interested in the part-time position, and naturally, I said ‘yes.’ Because I had been in contact with the public for so long, for many, many years. When I was a banker, I had a lot of public contact. I also worked at the Radisson Huntley [Hotel] as a concierge. Those helped prepared me for my services at the Santa Monica Visitors Center. One of the first assignments with the center and the kiosk in Palisades Park was answering questions for everybody — individual tourists who wandered up, excited groups who piled off tourist buses wanting postcards and other souvenirs, and city residents who needed directions.

What do you like about your job here? “The interaction with the public, and the camaraderie with the staff.” How do you do your research? “Well, it’s automatic now. But when I first came here and got the position at the kiosk, I immersed myself in learning everything I could possibly from a tourist perspective. I would ride buses, learning everything I could on the various routes — north, south, east and west — so that I would be able to provide the tourist with firsthand information. The Promenade, Santa Monica, Venice, Malibu — they all wanted all that information. The Farmers’ Market, Frank Gehry — we get a lot of inquiries about him. And of course, they all want to know where the celebrities are, where can they see one. The lady who gave me the position, we got quite friendly, and we used to go to restaurants to see what the prices were — the ambiance and all that — so we’d know where to send people ... because not everybody wants a five-star hotel or restaurant.” What kinds of questions do locals ask? “Some just want to know what’s going on — what’s the entertainment, what’s on at the Pier this weekend, the Civic

If someone came up to you and said, “I have my whole day free, plan me a day.” What would you tell them? “First, I’d ask them, ‘Do you have a car?’ Because most of the attractions outside of Santa Monica, you need a car. But then, of course, they can go on public transport. If people say, ‘I don’t have a car and I only have a couple of hours,’ naturally, I’d direct them to the Promenade. Or if they wanted to take a drive up the coastline, we tell them it’s an excellent drive up Pacific Coast Highway.” What if they have more than a couple of hours? “Well, do they want to take in a cinema or something like that? Would they like to go to Hollywood, University City? Or Disneyland — how far is it, how can they get there? If they don’t have car, we tell them they can hardly go there and back in a day on public transportation because it takes them a couple of hours to get there. It’s 45 miles away.” Why do you like working with people so much? “I don’t know why. It seems to come naturally. I look forward to helping people. I know what it’s like to come from another country and not know where you’re going. I feel when an out-of-town person comes to me, he or she is the most important and must be treated as such. Having found myself a tourist many times, I enjoy putting the visitor first.

Medical Center steps out on 80th birthday SM-UCLA, from page 1

over the Westside and they all seem to be having a fabulous time.” As they listened to the sounds of “Malpractice,” a Santa Monica-UCLA physician rock band, partygoers were free to take advantage of a bevy of free services. Parts of Arizona Avenue and 16th Street were lined with booths manned by volunteer vendors including Costco, Edible Arrangements, Krispy Kreme and Merle Norman Cosmetics — one of the medical center’s largest benefactors, which performed free makeovers. Many booths were affiliated with the university such as the UCLA Pain Management Center, while others were staffed with local officials such as the Santa Monica Police and Fire departments. Vendor Taco Real served some 4,000 tacos, running out less than an hour after the event began. Taco Real had been serving up plates to special events staff hours before the celebration began. Owner George Vasquez volunteered his Mexican cuisine business as a way to thank the hospital, which he credits for saving his wife’s life. Vasquez’s wife was hospitalized in August when she underwent surgery to remove a spine tumor. “It was a total change in our lives from her not being able to walk to now being healthy,” Vasquez said. “From the beginning to the end, the care of the hospital was great.” Some booths were staffed with non-profit organizations that found the event to be a good opportunity to inform the public of its mission. The Santa Monica Family YMCA handed out brochures on the many health activities

it offers. Member Services Director Bill Randle said YMCA’s theme of dealing with quality of life issues coincides with the medical center’s mission to heal the public. The YMCA also gave one lucky family a free three-month trial membership in a drawing. The event was popular among families who brought their children and grandchildren to participate in youth activities that included a teddy bear clinic and arts and crafts. Patricia Jardack of Santa Monica came with her husband and their son, Julian. Jardack works as a nutritionist in clinical research at UCLA’s main campus in Westwood. As part of her job, Jardack said she visits the Santa Monica center almost every day. “It’s amazing the medical center has been around for such a long time,” Jardack said, as she watched her young son pet a dog from the hospital’s Pet Therapy Program. THE DAWN OF AN ERA

The hospital on Sunday also honored five former Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center babies who were born in the hospital in 1926 and 1927, presenting them with a birthday cake. William Harvey, who was born in the hospital on Nov. 2, 1926, currently resides in the Pacific Palisades. He grew up in West Los Angeles, attended University High School and fought in the Pacific during World War II. He then went on to work at Southern California Edison for 35 years. He got mar-

ried around 1948, raised a daughter, and now has four grandchildren. His wife passed away three months before their 50th anniversary. “It’s quite a surprise to me,” Harvey said. “I didn’t expect anything like this.” Art Verge was born in the medical center on Aug. 2, 1927. He grew up in Santa Monica and currently teaches history and speech at Santa Monica College. Verge taught for eight years at John Adams Junior High School and has taught at SMC for 35 years. He joined the Navy in 1945 after his parents passed away while still a student at St. Monica’s High School. Verge and his wife Margie had six children, all of whom were raised in Santa Monica, and the couple now has seven grandchildren. Verge said he is still a loyal patient of Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center. “This is a celebration that is so much a part of Santa Monica,” Verge said. “I have a lifelong appreciation for a wonderful institution.” Reflecting on the past, looking to the future. Physicians Dr. William S. Mortensen and Dr. August B. Hromadka opened the hospital on July 26, 1926, after they mortgaged their own property and borrowed $50,000 to build the first medical center in Santa Monica. The original hospital was a three-story building with 60 beds. In 1942, the two physicians gave the hos-

pital to the Lutheran Hospital Society of Southern California, where it remained until 1988, when it became part of the non-profit organization, UniHealth America, according to Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center spokesman Ted Braun. In 1995, UCLA acquired the hospital following the Northridge Earthquake. “UCLA wanted to establish more community presence and make more services accessible,” Braun said. Since 1926, the community has seen the medical center expand as it added more buildings and services. In 1943, the hospital became the first to contract emergency services to the city of Los Angeles, Braun said. The hospital was also the first to open a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in Santa Monica. Currently, there are about 1,000 physicians on staff at Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center. Changes are in store for the medical center. At the end of this year, the name will change to Santa Monica-UCLA and Orthopaedic Hospital. The Orthopaedic Hospital officially joined the center about a year ago. “The theme of this event is “Building on a Caring Tradition” and we just think it’s very apt because Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center has had a long service to the Santa Monica community,” Carpenter said. New buildings, part of a $295 million project, will begin to come online next spring. “We will continue to serve the local community,” Carpenter said of the future. “We will continue to build on that community tradition and be on the cutting edge of primary and secondary level of patient care.”

department has recovered 63 shopping carts just since Aug. 1. Stewart said the GS2 wheel blends in with the wheel and is not easily noticeable. “Anyone who is not taking anything wouldn’t even know it’s there,” she said. According to Stewart, the cost to implement such a system can run anywhere from $5,000 to $60,000, depending on the num-

ber of carts, the size of the secured perimeter and the layout of the parking lot. Santa Monica resident Marilyn Lewitt was pushing one of the anti-lock shopping carts at Vons on Friday afternoon. The loyal Vons shopper of 12 years said she has noticed other supermarkets have converted to the new carts. “I don’t blame the market because people take them and then the prices go up,” she said. “It’s not an inconvenience.”

Wasting disease found in hearts By The Associated Press

JACKSON, Wyo. — Researchers in Wyoming have found chronic wasting disease in the heart muscle tissue of infected white-tailed deer and elk, the University of Wyoming has announced. UW researchers say the discovery marks the first time that the disease has been found in the heart tissue. The discovery is important because some hunters eat meat from the heart of animals they kill. The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization recommend against eating any animals that test positive for CWD. However, other officials also say there’s no scientific evidence that humans can contract the disease from eating infected animals.

The disease is found in elk and deer populations in southeastern Wyoming and in several other states. Chronic wasting disease is in the same family of fatal brain illnesses as mad cow disease and its human equivalent. There is no evidence that people have ever caught chronic wasting disease from infected deer or elk. Jean Jewell, a research scientist at the UW Department of Veterinary Services, said the discovery of the disease in heart tissue of infected deer and elk should not alarm hunters. “There is a tendency for people to become alarmed when they hear something that makes them think their health might be at risk, but at this stage there is no evidence to suggest humans are susceptible to CWD,” Jewell said. Terry Kreeger, wildlife veterinarian with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department, said Friday that

the tests involved captive elk and deer that were intentionally infected with CWD at research facilities in Wyoming and Colorado. Kreeger said the game department now makes no recommendation on whether hunters should eat game animals infected with CWD. However, he said that in light of the new findings, the game department will consider whether it should recommend that hunters avoid eating heart tissue. Jewell said hunters who kill animals in areas where CWD exists should consider taking a sample of their animals to the Wyoming State Veterinary Laboratory or to the game department for testing. The lab charges $25 for testing, and results are typically available within two weeks. The game department doesn’t charge for testing, but will only test animals from areas where it’s currently investigating the incidence of CWD.

A Hopeful Brokaw recalls peers Journalist TOM BROKAW says every family in America has been touched by cancer. Brokaw mentioned the deaths of two friends — ABC anchor Peter Jennings and New York Times journalist R.W. Apple — during a news conference Friday at the University of Nebraska Medical Center.

“I don’t know any family in America who has not had some kind of really unsettling and ultimately difficult experience with cancer,” the former “NBC Nightly News” anchorman said. UNMC’s Eppley Cancer Center honored Brokaw Friday night with the Ambassador of Hope Award,

given to people who have contributed to the fight against cancer through research, patient care activities or by raising public awareness. Previous recipients include General Norman Schwarzkopf and Sam Donaldson. Center director Kenneth Cowan said Brokaw was chosen for the

award because he is well-known and has ties to the Midwest. Brokaw started his broadcast journalism career in Omaha, working at CBS affiliate KMTV from 1962 to 1965. Brokaw commended the center and its supporters for their work fighting cancer. Tickets to the

event cost $150, and Cowan said all proceeds will go to cancer research. More than 1.2 million people were diagnosed with cancer in 2002, the last year data was available, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Associated Press

RAYMOND WHO?

Clooney is feeling the heat For GEORGE CLOONEY , the awards just keep on comin’. In a year where he’s already received an Oscar and a Golden Globe, the actor-director-producer has just collected another trophy: the 2006 American Cinematheque Award. “Basically, what it is, really, is a bunch of your friends who are gonna roast the hell out of you,” Clooney told AP Television before the Friday night event. “But when it’s done, you’re raising money to help American Cinematheque, which actually does some great things.” The American Cinematheque runs

a number of film-fan and filmmaker-development programs, many held at Hollywood’s historic Egyptian Theatre. The $500-plus-per-plate Clooney dinner-event at the Beverly Hilton was sold out. Among the attendees: Director Oliver Stone, entertainer Lindsay Lohan, actor-producer Salma Hayek, and actors Julia Roberts, Geoffrey Rush and Christian Slater. “He’s a great artist, great director, and a phenomenal humanitarian,” noted Slater, soon to be seen in the docudrama “Bobby.” Clooney’s filmography includes

appearances in a blast of hits, including “Ocean’s Eleven” and “The Perfect Storm.” He marked his feature-directing debut with the acclaimed “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind” and earned an Oscar nomination this year for directing “Good Night, and Good Luck.” His production credits include the Oscar-nominated “Far From Heaven,” as well as the political drama “Syriana,” for which Clooney won the Academy Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role. Clooney is also known as a worldclass prankster.

“I wouldn’t want to play one on him, because retribution is swift and it’s fierce,” said Noah Wyle, who worked with Clooney on TV’s “ER” from 1994 through to Clooney’s departure from the series in 2000. Clooney’s latest film, the blackand-white World War II drama “The Good German,” begins a limitedrelease run Dec. 8, and opens nationwide Christmas Day. “George Clooney: An American Cinematheque Tribute” is set to air Dec. 13 on the American Movie Classics cable channel.

Nearly a year and a half removed from “Everybody Loves Raymond,” actress DORIS ROBERTS hasn’t yet had a chance to miss television. The feisty 75-year-old has done three movies since the awardwinning comedy ended in May 2005, and taken a vacation in Alaska with her son. On Oct. 20, the five-time Emmy Award-winner will help Syracuse Stage conduct its annual fundraiser, appearing in an adaptation of Clare Booth Luce’s classic satire, “The Women.” The performance is an “Old Time Radio Theater” production in which Roberts and cast of community personalities will read their lines. A Broadway hit written in 1936, “The Women” is a catty comedy about women, rivalries and infidelity. It was made into a 1939 movie. Roberts will reprise the role of Sylvia Fowler. “I love stage most of all. They can’t cut you out. They can’t just show the back of your head. It’s you and the audience. It’s alive and exciting,” she said. Roberts made her television debut in 1952 in the Westinghouse Summer Theater production of “Jane Eyre.” Since the early 1960s, she has been a mainstay on television, appearing in guest and starring roles in some of Hollywood’s most recognizable shows, including All in the Family and The Love Boat. She also has appeared in more than three dozen movies. But her most famous role came in “Everybody Loves Raymond” as Marie Barone, who she played for nine years. AP
