Pumpkin throwing leads to shooting

BORDERLINE

NEIGHBORHOOD Santa Monica police are looking for a suspect who allegedly shot and injured a 15-yearold boy Tuesday evening at Seventh and Ozone streets near the border with Venice. The victim, whose name was not released, was with two friends about 6:30 p.m. when a white American sedan pulled over to the curb near the boys, police said. After words were exchanged between the two parties, officers said the victim and his friends threw small pumpkins at the car. The driver responded by firing at the group, striking the victim in the leg, according to police. The boy was taken to an unspecified local hospital. Police said his wound was “non-life threatening.” The victim was described as a Latino male. No arrests have been made and police have no suspects in the attack. Sgt. Jay Trisler described the two witnesses as “uncooperative.” No description of the shooter was released and Trisler said police did not know how many occupants were in the vehicle. “We don’t know if it’s gang related because we don’t have any information as far as the suspects,” Trisler said. For the past year, the victim had been attending the Pico Youth & Family Center, a nonprofit organization that offers counseling for at-risk youths run by school board member Oscar de la Torre. de la Torre also withheld the victim’s name but said he’s spoken with the boy on a number of occasions about avoiding violence and focusing on school. He confirmed the boy is a ninth grader in the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District. “I think he’s a young man who needs SEE SHOOTING PAGE 7

SAMOHI With only five games left on the Vikings' schedule this season, the Santa Monica High School girls' volleyball team is looking to continue on the success they have enjoyed so far this year after having played in two pre-season tournaments (one in Hawaii), a mid-season tournament held at the Marlborough School last weekend, and in several regular season games. So far this season, the Vikings are just 4-8 in non-league tournament play, but Santa Monica Head Coach Liane Sato is optimistic her team can take it to the next level when faced with a challenge within the Ocean League or with playoff hopes in play. Before the start of the 2010 season, Coach Sato included winning the Ocean League and qualifying for the California Interscholastic Federation Southern Section playoffs once again as the team's goals for this year. “I most look forward to our team continuing to work as a cohesive unit together and for us to all improve,” junior Dana Ritchie said. “Hopefully the high-level tournaments we've played in this year will prepare us for the CIF postseason in November.” Last season, the Vikings finished with a record of 15-7 and were eligible for the CIFSS postseason. They ended Ocean League play in second place with a record of 9-1, being narrowly edged out by Beverly Hills High School, and made it to the third round of the playoffs where they were knocked off by Poly High School of Pasadena. Coach Sato and the team are optimistic they can get even further in the playoffs this season and the weekly division rankings recently released by the CIF echoes their optimism — the Vikings have broken the top 10 of the CIFSS Division 3-AA poll as the only team from the Ocean league to do so, coming in ranked No. 8. The Vikings play in the competitive sixteam Ocean League with perennial leagueleaders Beverly Hills High School as well as against Morningside, Culver City, Hawthorne and Inglewood High Schools. The Vikings will travel to play league rival Inglewood today at 3:15 before taking on both Culver City and Morningside next week. news@smdp.com

It came from the skies Wet weather could bring new rain barrel converts BY NICK TABOREK Daily Press Staff Writer

CITY HALL Southern Californians may be notoriously pathetic when it comes to dealing with a little wet weather, but a small (and growing) number of them are raising the bar by doing their part to keep rainwater from flowing into the Santa Monica Bay with their own rain-storage devices. In Santa Monica, City Hall’s Office of Sustainability and the Environment for several years has offered rebates to residents who purchase rain barrels and cisterns as part of a program aimed at diverting runoff back to gardens and lawns. Since 2009, the rebates have been funded with money from Measure V, the Clean Beaches and Ocean Parcel Tax that voters

approved in 2006. While it’s gaining momentum, still only a tiny minority of Santa Monicans have taken advantage of the program. Last year, City Hall received 26 applications and issued rebates for 60 barrels and 15 cisterns (most homeowners decide to install multiple rain catchers once they make the commitment). Of the initial $60,000 in Measure V money allocated for rebates (which can range from $100 for small barrel purchases up to $500 for 500-gallon cisterns), just $9,500 has been spent, according to Kim O’Cain, a water resources specialist who oversees the program. “I would love to see more activity,” she said, adding that “it usually happens around

COMMUNITY BRIEFS SM BEACH

County issues rain advisory The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health has issued a rain advisory for all county beaches in effect until at least Saturday, at 8 a.m. due to the amount of rainfall over the past few days. This advisory may be extended depending on further rainfall. Dr. Jonathan E. Fielding, director of public health for the county, is cautioning residents who are planning to visit area beaches to be careful of swimming, surfing and playing in ocean waters around discharging storm drains, creeks and rivers. Bacteria, debris, trash and other public health hazards from city streets and mountain areas are likely to enter ocean waters though these outlets. “Fortunately, discharging storm drains, creeks, and rivers only comprise a small portion of the beach, and therefore, anybody who wants to go to the beach will be able to enjoy their outing,” said Fielding. “We do advise swimmers and surfers to stay away from the storm drains, creeks and rivers as there is the possibility that bacteria or chemicals from debris and trash may contaminate the water near and around these areas, and some individuals may become ill.” Recorded information on area beach conditions is available 24 hours a day on the county’s beach closure hotline at (800) 525-5662.

EDITOR IN CHIEF

The best is yet to come Editor:

As a life-long Democrat, I have tremendous compassion and sympathy for Republicans. But such virtue flew out of my consciousness when I read the article about Westside Republicans coming out of the closet (“Westside Republicans come out,” page 1, Oct. 20), especially where a West Los Angeles Republican named Iris, said, “It’s more difficult, more intellectually challenging being a conservative.” Iris, who obviously meant that to be a conservative is to oppose every rational and intelligent thought known to mankind, simply reflects the pervasive shallowness of a political party that longs for the days of the 1950s when Ozzie and Harriet used to visit our homes on a weekly basis. Things change. And unless we remain open to change we are stuck in the quagmire of the past, and are doomed therefore to repeat it. I wish my Republican friends the best. But the best lies ahead, not in the past.

Joseph R. Moreno Santa Monica

Consolidate schools Editor:

Given the low numbers of enrollment at many of the SMMUSD schools, it is time to seriously talk about closing a school site, selling the land for public parks, and using the savings to balance our school budget. Every year, I hear the same scare tactics and threats of music/AP cuts used over and over again. Instead of threats, can we actually use good financial sense to solve this never ending crisis. Keep in mind, the best scores come from the largest elementary school of 770 students, so the old saying that “smaller is better” holds no weight in this argument. Why are there five school sites with under 280 students? After 12 years (the amount of time I have been in SMMUSD and have been subjected to the “sky is falling” mantra), can we try something new?

Dr. Lisette Gold Santa Monica

Pledge of allegiance Editor:

With the current disclosures from the Santa Monica Coalition for a Livable City, regarding the close relationships between [City Council] candidates [Pam] O’Connor and [Terry] O’Day and the developers ravaging our city, it is clear that residents need to be careful “to whom they pledge their troth” on Nov. 2. These candidates will represent our interests for the next two or four years, therefore, our votes need to be given the same careful consideration as a marriage contract. The track record of the two above-noted candidates has been clearly exposed and documented. There is strong evidence that we need to divorce both of them, and replace them with community-concerned candidates, such as Susan Hartley and Ted Winterer, who have repeatedly demonstrated where their true hearts lie.

Joanne Curtis Santa Monica

Death of the payphone Editor:

Why are public payphones being removed from convenient locations on the streets of Santa Monica, the one that used to be adjacent to this branch library that I am using, for instance? Do you really think that all visitors now carry a personal cellphone when traveling abroad, one that has to be rigged for Global Roaming? Fifty cents in the slot is more than adequate for most visitors to call a taxi, or a friend to announce their arrival. I suppose it is the almighty American dollar talking, the “bottom line” for the shareholders (but that has now sunk to the same level as the great Australian dollar!), and payphones probably don’t make as much profit as exorbitant mobile charges? Not good for the visitor, who helps to keep Santa Monica going!

Feeling down in the dumps

MANAGING EDITOR

DEAR NEW SHRINK,

daniela@smdp.com

Kevin Herrera editor@smdp.com

Daniel Archuleta

I am wondering if you can help me figure something out. I feel terrible. I have been feeling discouraged, sometimes kind of depressed and hopeless and I also have trouble sleeping plus I eat and drink more than I should, especially at night. It took a lot of courage on my part to go and see a psychiatrist, but I did it. I looked it up online and picked a doctor that sounded good and was nearby and I made the appointment. I was a little afraid to go because I heard that they always want to put you on drugs, but I also was hoping that he would give me something to help me feel better. Much to my surprise, he said that I was not “clinically depressed,” whatever that means, and that I did not need an anti-depressant medication. The visit was pretty short and he didn’t really say what I should do, so I am hoping you can tell me what to do. Signed, Stumped DEAR STUMPED,

First off I would never try to secondguess another doctor, especially when I am not in that interview with you nor do I know you or your circumstances. A clinical depression is a “major depression” and you can look that up pretty easily. Go to the NIMH.gov website or maybe just WebMD. When you have this type of depression, you can barely get out of bed in the morning, sometimes don’t and have a great deal of difficulty functioning. You may cry for no apparent good reason; your concentration is usually seriously impaired; your self-esteem is way down and you often do not want to live or actually have active thoughts of suicide. This is just the short version but I would recommend that you read up on it because it is serious and does require treatment. So now back to you. Perhaps you are not really depressed but have bouts of it from time to time. This could be due to your life circumstances for example, stress in your life or an unresolved loss. Also, anger turned inward is the single greatest cause of these types of depressed moods. Often people do not realize that they are suppressing their anger, which inevitably means it will come out in a passive-aggressive way, cause physical aches and pains or turn into depression. Ask yourself what you are angry about. Try hard to be honest and write it down. Talk to someone you can trust

about it. Many people confuse sadness with depression. Have you had a recent, say within the last few years, loss that really troubled you? Think hard if nothing comes to mind right away. It can be a job, marriage, love, good friend, home, parent, sibling, favorite cousin or a pet. If you feel yourself getting sad while reading this and thinking about it, you need to talk to someone. It can be a therapist, rabbi, minister or priest or there are bereavement groups. Another possibility is post-traumatic stress, which is not limited to military folks. Any traumatic event that is unresolved, or at least not processed, leads to feelings of helplessness, which in turn, leads to hopelessness. “Discouraged” is related to helpless and hopeless and also says that there is something you are trying to do or accomplish but that you are not getting there. The feelings and symptoms you describe sound like post trauma, unresolved loss and difficulty dealing with frustration and anger. Eating and drinking too much is usually a form of self-medicating, which means trying to medicate or soothe your pain with food and drink. Lastly, if you are really drinking too much, it may be a drinking problem. Did the psychiatrist ask you about this? Were you honest with him and are you honest with yourself? If you have a drinking problem it can lead to all the other problems you are struggling with. Anti-depressants are not the solution for a drinking problem. They can help our mood when we are trying to get through a loss or trauma of some kind. But I think you should consider seeing a psychotherapist. This would help you figure out what the real issues are and it would help you resolve the problems that you are having. I hope this helps you out but think seriously about seeing a therapist as well. I generally tell patients to give it six visits and if it isn’t helping or doesn’t feel right at that point, find a different therapist or call it a day. Good luck! DR.

Kids’ candy isn’t what it used to be WITH HALLOWEEN JUST DAYS AWAY,

there’s no better time to mourn the current state of candy. The newer stuff is far inferior to the sweetness of yore, with kids way more into Red Bull than Red Hots. It seems as though caffeinated beverages have replaced candy as the sugar of choice for today’s youth. It’s not unusual to see 9-yearolds after school sipping 24-ounce BPA-free mugs filled with Starbucks’ banana coconut, tazo green tea with melon syrup, double chocolate chip or white chocolate mocha frappuccinos topped with whipped cream. But who can really blame the kids for forgoing the candy aisle when even the classics have changed. A bag of M&Ms isn’t just filled with brown, yellow, orange and green anymore. Blue is now a staple. A few years back they made them in black and white. At Easter they roll out the pastels. Red was taken out of the mix in 1976 when it was believed the dye posed a health hazard. When that proved to be an urban myth, they re-introduced them in 1987 even though everyone knows the little red ones can’t be enjoyed because they have the whiff of cancer on their hard candy shells. They make M&M Minis, M&M Dark Candies, Pretzel M&Ms, Coconut, M&M candy bars, M&M ice cream. The M&M people might want to talk to the Kardashians about overexposure. The basic Hershey bar isn’t what it once was, either. No longer does the brown paper wrap encase shiny, silvery foil. Time was there were few things more thrilling than opening up a Hershey’s bar first by unsealing the outside wrapper at its seam and then unfolding the foil slowly at a corner, like Charlie in the (original) Willy Wonka movie when he discovers he got the final the Golden Ticket. Hershey bars are now sealed in a single layer. It’s a plastic wrap that’s brown in the middle and silver on the ends — obviously trying to look like the old two-layer system. The manufacturers would likely argue they’re saving trees or reducing waste. Blah blah blah. Some things are sacred. You can’t get baseball cards with gum anymore. The wimpy bigwigs at Topps and Fleer were apparently fearful gum imprints on the cards would tarnish their value. But where else can you find powdery gum that’s jaw-achingly hard as cardboard with little to no flavor? It’s been years since there’s been a Razzle sighting. Foot-long strawberry Charleston Chews, Fizzies, Fun Dip, Pop Rocks and candy buttons on paper tape are most easily found these days on eBay. And what kid didn’t enjoy kicking back with a candy cigarette. The cylinder-shaped gum rolled in white paper and boxed in rec-

tangular-shaped packs looked exactly like the real emphysema-causing things. If you blew out on the end, a tiny plume of sugar even flew out of the tip, just like actual smoke. A little puff of heaven, really. The only candy slightly more fun (and still available in stores today) was Big League Chew. All hail Wrigley’s, the company missing just enough tact and sensitivity to create a product allowing kids to imitate the highly disgusting tobacco-chewing habit of baseball players of yore. (By now, most Major Leaguers have switched to chewing gum during televised games, although it seems as though they haven’t managed to kick their crotch-grabbing habits. One day at a time, fellas.)

LIKE WRIGLEY’S AND BRAD PITT, MANY CANDY COMPANIES WERE SEEMINGLY MISSING SENSITIVITY CHIPS WHEN THEY NAMED THEIR BRANDS. NERDS, RUNTS, MEGA WARHEAD LOLLIPOPS AND CRY BABY EXTRA SOUR GUM WERE ALL THE RAGE BACK IN THE DAY. Also still manufactured today are Hubba Bubba, Bubbalicious and Bubble Yum. The watermelon, cherry, apple and grape flavors haven’t changed a bit in 25 years. The artificial fruit flavors from each brand all have the same distinct taste. None resembles the actual fruits for which they’re named, but nevertheless, they’re utterly consistent in their real-imitation tastes and that they lose their entire flavor after 70 seconds of chewing. Like Wrigley’s and Brad Pitt, many candy companies were seemingly missing sensitivity chips when they named their brands. Nerds, Runts, Mega Warhead lollipops and Cry Baby extra sour gum were all the rage back in the day. If the confection trend moved along at the same rate, we’d now have the option of chocolate crack pipes, candy-coated birth control pills, Sprite-filled syringes and kits containing straws, mirrors and baggies filled with powdered sugar at gas station convenience stores everywhere. If candy is bad for you anyway, why not mix it up and make some of it downright criminal? Get a pair of wax lips and chew on that. More at meredithcarroll.com.

Burn it off on the Internet LATELY, GYM MEMBERS HAVE BEEN

asking me the same question: “How did you lose all that weight?” I tell them the same three things: 1) I’ve got an awesome trainer, Keith Sims, who keeps putting me through the paces; 2) I get in to do my cardio everyday and; 3) I enter my foods into the Fatburn.com online program. Now, this is where I get a strange look of consternation. There seems to be a vast number of gym members who either do not know about this program (which by the way is free when you have a gym membership and available to non-members for a nominal monthly fee) nor understand how it works. Fatburn.com allows me to keep track of my progress and monitor my calorie intake. It’s not difficult and anyone can do it. The first step is to go to Fatburn.com and create an account. You can access Fatburn.com from the Burn Fitness website or you can simply type in fatburn.com on your URL line. If you’re a Luddite (and a member) you can chat with anyone at the front desk and they will be more than happy to walk you through the process. If you’re not a member and you want more info, please feel free to contact me and I’ll be happy to help you. That being said; take a moment to play around on the site. It will ultimately help you discover the ins-and-outs of the site and is a great way to gear up for your meal data entry. Once you log in you will be taken to a page that allows you to set your weight loss goals. Don’t go crazy here. Don’t put in that you want to lose 50 pounds in one week. That’s unrealistic, yet you’d be surprised at how many people ask me, “Can I set a goal of 10 pounds in one week?” Well you can … if you’re mentally challenged. Look, when you are trying to lose weight and you want to keep it off the key is to lose weight slowly. You didn’t put on 50 pounds in one week so what makes you think you can take it off in one? Weight loss is one arena where you want to be conservative. You can expect to lose a pound a week. If you amp up your cardio and training and combine with a strict diet plan you can expect to lose 1.5 to two pounds per week. Therefore, if you wish to lose 30 pounds you should be setting a goal of 20 weeks. Once you set your goal, the program does the rest. It will tell you how many calories you may consume per day and still create a calorie deficit. Let me explain about the calorie deficit because this took me a long time to figure out. One pound = 3,500 calories. Therefore,

BY THE NUMBERS Starting Weight: 182 Pounds Lost: 27 Current Weight: 155 Goal Weight: 135 Pounds to Lose to Goal: 20

in order to lose a pound a week, you have to create a calorie deficit equal to 3,500 calories. Now, the rest of this gets very “mathy-mathy” so before I lose all you readers (myself included because I’m really not great at math), the program calculates what you need to burn each day in order to create that weekly calorie deficit. All you have to do is enter in your activities for the day, the food that you’re eating, and the program tallies up your: meal calories, activity calories, net burn, fat grams consumed, carbohydrate grams consumed, sugars consumed, and yells at you if you’re eating too much! Well, it doesn’t exactly yell at you, but if you are eating too few calories per day, it shows up in red and if you’re eating too much — well, it puts that in red, too! You don’t want to be in the red! The trick here is to keep up with the dayto-day data entry. I will admit, there have been a few days where I got busy and didn’t do it; there have been a few days that I was sick and lost a little ground. None of us are perfect. The key is to try our best to keep up. For those of you saying, “Well, I’ve been on diets before, they don’t work.” Fatburn.com isn’t a diet; it’s a way of achieving your weight loss goals. You can eat whatever you want, as long as you account for it. The database includes every food imaginable and if it doesn’t, an option allows you to create your own food item simply by entering the name of the food and several key components found on the food item’s nutrition label. For example, my one guilty carb is the Julian Bakery “smart carb” 65-calorie bread — but I noticed it wasn’t coming up in the search engine. A couple keystrokes later and voile´ my new food item is added not only to my personal data list but also to the master database for all to access. So that’s the big secret at Burn Fitness — Tom Williams’ fatburn.com program. It works. I’ve lost almost 30 pounds now … slowly … and I’m continuing on, losing a little bit every day. It’s the way you’re supposed to lose! TAYLOR can be reached at tailfish@roadrunner.com.

REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL (RFP) RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY MANAGEMENT SERVICES Issue Date: October 15, 2010 Deadline: November 3, 2010 The City of Santa Monica’s Housing Division is seeking residential property management firms to manage each or all of three City-owned low-income residential properties. The scope of work includes day-to-day management of the properties, collection of rents, delinquencies, maintenance, repair, parking and serving as the primary contact with tenants regarding issues such as landlord/tenant disputes and other operational questions. More information regarding this RFP is available at the following Housing Division web page: http://www01.smgov.net/housing/news-notices.htm

Works Progress Administration paintings from the 1930s, the largest collection of rare books on Southern California history and even an authentic Hot Dog on a Stick uniform and Dogtown skateboard. “My husband and I started the museum … with just a little bit of money. Everything we had was donated,” Gabriel, president of the Santa Monica Historical Society, said Wednesday as she stood in the museum’s permanent gallery consisting of historical images and artifacts covering all aspects of Santa Monica life as well as an interactive replica of one of Douglas Aircraft Company’s planes and a station to read articles from the Evening Outlook newspaper archives. “My husband and I were always grateful to live in Santa Monica and we wanted to give something back,” said Gabriel, who realized the importance of preservation as a child when her family home burned down, the fire destroying family heirlooms and photos. “To see this museum finally realized, it’s really a dream come true. I know my husband, if he were here, would say after all these years of work; ‘It was all worth it.’” The journey has not been without its challenges. The Santa Monica Historical Society, a nonprofit organization founded in 1975 during the planning for the city’s centennial celebration, has had four different homes since its inception. Space was scarce, forcing staff to store the vast majority of artifacts. Creating a permanent home that included a climate controlled storage area, research stations and funding for tours for local school children was always the goal, Gabriel said. But money was tight.

We have you covered When City Hall built the new Main Library, a 5,200-square-foot space was carved out for the museum. Gabriel, members of the society’s board and staff were excited and inspired to make the dream a reality. “We wanted to have some more visibility and this space offered that,” Gabriel said. The only problem was they needed to raise $1.5 million for construction and millions more to create an endowment to cover operating costs. (City Hall is leasing that space for a very affordable rate of $1 a year.) A capital campaign was launched with “Murphy Brown” star Joe Regalbuto, a long-time Santa Monica resident, named the honorary spokesperson. That was around the time that the recession hit and donations dwindled, delaying the museum’s grand opening by two years. However, some key donors stepped up, including Morley Builders, Gabriel and her late husband, former Evening Outlook editor Ron Funk and his wife Ann, Macerich Co., the Bourget Bros., who donated stone slabs for the lobby, and Boeing Aircraft. “Because of the economy it took longer than usual to build,” Gabriel said. “But everyone kept pushing for it. It’s amazing how in this economy people supported this museum. We got them to see what a great asset this was.” The museum, designed by Santa Monica-based architect Kristina Andresen, features a research library, climate and humidity controlled storage area, offices for staff and volunteers, rotating gallery space and a permanent gallery with a timeline and five themes: The Origins, At Work, At Play, In the Headlines, and In the Arts. (These areas feature a replica of a car from the Whirlwind Dipper roller coaster, an SEE MUSEUM PAGE 9

There’s also a “Then & Now” space where visitors can pick a specific location like Third Street and compare photos from the past and the present to see how things have changed. “The goal was to have the museum be multi-functional,” Andresen said. While the home has been built and furnished, money and volunteers are still needed to keep the museum open. Staff with the historical society are in desperate need of funds to grow the endowment to $5 million and are looking for docents to help lead tours and interact with guests.

Head to toe with Head CECIL B. DEMILLE ONCE WAITED FIVE

months for his peacocks to shed so that Edith Head could use their feathers in the spectacular cape that she designed for Hedy Lamarr to wear in “Samson and Delilah.” A tasty tidbit offered by Edith Head — in the person of Susan Claassen — at the El Portal Theatre this month. Claassen, who is the image of Head, thick straight-cut bangs, chignon with a pencil stuck through it, dark granny glasses and all, presents “A Conversation with Edith Head, an Evening of Wit, Wisdom and a Whisper of Gossip.” She and co-writer Paddy Calistro’s extensive collections of Edith-a-bilia are displayed in the lobby, while affectionately autographed glamour shots of Head’s famous “clients” and re-creations of some of their costumes are part of the scenery onstage. The set itself is at audience-level (there is no stage), so that Claassen can prowl back and forth, talk to various members of the audience, critique the clothes of the women (as Head used to do on Art Linkletter’s TV show “House Party”), and be prompted and kept on track by Stuart Moulton, who serves as her “host” for the production. Her story begins in 1923 when, armed with a master’s degree from Stanford, she began teaching French at the Hollywood School for Girls. There she was introduced to the father of one of her students, a big shot at Paramount. So, stuffing a portfolio with other people’s drawings and designs, she applied for a job in the costume design department at the studio — and got it. Assigned to designing clothes for animals, she tells of the elephant who paid her the highest compliment: “She liked her costume so much, she ate it!” Stopping to read a question submitted from a woman in the audience, she snaps, “My private life is just that. Private!” But she does acknowledge that she was born Jewish and became “an ardent Catholic” in order to “blend in.” She was also married twice: once to Charles Head, about whom she reveals nothing more than his name, and then to set designer Wiard Ihnen, whom she affectionately calls “Little Billy.” Her first costume design for a real person was for Mae West in “She Done Him Wrong,” with co-star Archie Leach.

“But you may know him as — (pause to let the audience respond) — yes, that’s right! Cary Grant!” She admired West not only for her measurements (38-24-38) but also for the fact that she “died without a regret in the world.” Head talks of the “figure challenge” of Barbara Stanwyck, who had an excessively long waist and a low-slung tush. A problem Head solved by dressing her in a gown with a sash that was wide in the front and narrowed and hung low in the back. She also talks about the three top glamour stars at Paramount in the 1930s: Marlene Dietrich, Carole Lombard, and Claudette Colbert, but she saves her digs for Colbert, whom she accuses of “pretending to be so sweet,” when she was, in fact, “mean-spirited” and “most difficult.” She has kudos for Bette Davis, who had “integrity as well as glamour,” and for whom she designed the famous furtrimmed gown that Davis wore so elegantly in “All About Eve.” (“When in doubt, trim with fur,” she says.) And she laughs about dressing Bob Hope and Bing Crosby in kilts for “Road to Bali.” Uncharacteristically modest, she says, “I’m merely an interpreter” of other people’s assets. “I supply the camouflage — and the magic.” The magic that she brought to some 1,100 films during 44 years at Paramount and 14 years at Universal garnered her 35 Academy Award nominations (including one every year from 1948 through 1966), and had her winning eight. “As for the men in my life,” she likes to say, “I have eight of them. And they’re all named Oscar.” Her only regret, she admits, in answer to a question from the audience, is “never having designed for Marilyn Monroe — or for my darling Cubbies.” “A Conversation with Edith Head” will continue at the Forum Theatre at the El Portal, 5269 Lankershim Blvd., North Hollywood, Thursdays through Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays at 3 p.m. through Oct. 24. Call (818) 508-4200 for tickets. CYNTHIA CITRON can ccitron@socal.rr.com.

Galaxy’s Eddie Lewis calling it quits after season THE ASSOCIATED PRESS CARSON Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder Eddie Lewis plans to retire at the end of the season. Lewis said Wednesday that he’ll call it quits after the Galaxy’s playoff run ends. Their regular season finale is Sunday against FC Dallas, then the Galaxy will try to win its first MLS Cup since 2005 in the postseason. Lewis played in the 2002 and ‘06 World Cups for the U.S. He’s in his third season with the Galaxy after starting his MLS career with San Jose from 1996-99. Lewis spent nearly nine years with four different clubs in England before returning to the U.S. Lewis is the second Galaxy player to announce his retirement this season, joining Clint Mathis, who quit in August.

Lilly signs with Dodgers BETH HARRIS AP Sports Writer

opportunity to test the free agent market, signing a three-year, $33 million deal on Tuesday to return to the Los Angeles Dodgers. “I thought this was a really good opportunity for me and the future looks really good,” he said on a conference call after completing a physical. While a judge considers a ruling in owner Frank McCourt’s divorce trial, general manager Ned Colletti said McCourt has given him an undisclosed payroll figure for the 2011 season and “it’s up from a year ago.” “I’d still like to add more starting pitching and a bullpen arm or two and some position players,” Colletti said. He liked the way Lilly helped stabilize the Dodgers’ rotation after the pitcher was acquired in a deal with the Chicago Cubs at the trade deadline.

Lilly receives a $3.5 million signing bonus: $500,000 on April 1 and $1.5 million on each following April 1. He gets salaries of $7 million next season, $10.5 million in 2011 and $12 million in 2012. The deal includes a full no-trade clause through the end of the 2012 season. “I feel very grateful,” said Lilly, a two-time All-Star from suburban Torrance recently completed a four-year, $40 million contract. He considered sitting back and waiting on potential offers in free agency. “Those aren’t the things I want to be thinking about. I want to be preparing for the upcoming season,” Lilly said. “I want to try and get back to what Cliff Lee is doing. I’ve been watching pretty much every pitch he’s been throwing this offseason.” Lee struck out 13 in helping Texas beat the New York Yankees 8-0 Monday night in Game 3 of the AL championship series. “My dream is to get an opportunity to do something like that,” Lilly said.

Looking even smaller, although it's likely that a small amount of NW will come into the picture, enough to help west facing breaks with waist+ sets.

Don’t judge, Aries ARIES (March 21-April 19)

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

★★★★★ You are in prime shape. You don't want to push too hard to achieve your goals, as others could be reactive. Play the waiting game if need be. Explain piece by piece what is going on. Others still might have trouble grasping your ideas. Tonight: Delve into your basket of creativity. Give up judgments.

★★★★ You might be in sharp disagreement with someone. How you deal with others could change radically because of another person's reaction to your generally easygoing attitude. Remember, you don't need to say yes. Tonight: Just don't be alone.

The Meaning of Lila

By John Forgetta & L.A. Rose

SCORPIO ( Oct 23-Nov. 21) TAURUS (April 20-May 20) ★★★ Use your sixth sense to the max. Someone inevitably could test your patience using a gentle type of coercive logic. You need to compensate for time spent trying to convince others you are right. Is it worth it? Tonight: Vanish, because you can.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) ★★★★★ Meetings and groups prove to be most fortunate. Someone you see on a regular basis could pull you in but not help you accomplish what you absolutely must at the moment. Let your creativity flow. Tonight: Start the weekend early.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) ★★★ Be direct with others, though you could find it to be problematic. Tension rises in an unprecedented manner. You want to get to the bottom of a problem. You could be more upset than in the past. Tonight: Could be late.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) ★★★★★ Take the high road in order to gain understanding with a matter that has been challenging. Detach from the whole story, and solutions will appear. Sometimes we have too much information, which could be the case here. Tonight: Do more research if need be.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ★★★★★ A partner does get domineering at times. You tend to respond well to his or her attitude. Make time for a discussion, though don't expect agreement over money. Tonight: Hook up with a pal for dinner.

★★★★★ You might say a little too much. Sometimes lying back and being the listener is the smart role. Stop being so hard on yourself. Just drop the word "no." Tonight: Get some exercise.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) ★★★★★ You might want to rethink a special tie that could involve a creative project. Be careful about taking another's comments personally. Stay on top of discussions in a meeting. Tonight: Having fun.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ★★★★ You know what needs to happen between you and another person. Your fatigue could hold you back, to an extent. Be willing to slow down and take a personal day or work from home. Tonight: Order in.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ★★★★ Listen to others who seem to want to call the shots. Just because you listen doesn't mean you agree. Know that and understand it. Confusion surrounds information where there is an issue about what is fact and what is fiction. Tonight: Ask key questions. Don't hold back.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) ★★★ Be aware of the expenses of proceeding on the present course. You could be overly tired and pushed. You might want to rethink a money matter, as there could be an issue or discrepancy between facts and figures. Tonight: You might spend more than you want to!

Happy birthday This year, you frequently question reality and facts. This might reflect that often the information you are given is far from correct. Create a more solid base of

fact rendering. Opinions often will differ. Learn to respect where others come from. If you are single, you certainly seem to have a magic wand, as you draw in many suitors. Forget a lack of romance. If you are attached, the two of you often have differences of opinion. Emotional reactions could be strong, but you will be more grounded if you look at the issue behind the differences. Understanding and accepting them is the way toward peace. ARIES can often challenge you.

NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY

SHEPARD

■ A Breakthrough in Political Campaign Technology: New York gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino, waging a particularly contentious battle, mailed out a flier in September suggesting that Democratic state politicians are corrupt, with photos of seven of that party's current and recent office-holders and accompanied by a special odor-triggering paper that releases a "garbage-scented" smell when exposed to air (and which supposedly grows even more foul over time). ■ Sherin Brown, 23, happened to be walking through a Brooklyn, N.Y., neighborhood in August at the exact moment that a tractor-trailer accidentally clipped a light pole, sending it crashing to the sidewalk. First responders found Brown pinned under the pole, screaming for help, and had her taken to a hospital. Afterward, investigators discovered a nearby surveillance camera, which revealed that Brown had stepped out of the way of the falling pole but then, with no one else around, had crawled underneath and began wailing in "pain," perhaps in anticipation of a future lawsuit.

GETTING STARTED

CHUCK

SOLUTIONS TO YESTERDAY’S PUZZLE

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

TODAY IN HISTORY The metre is defined at the seventeenth General Conference on Weights and Measures as the distance light travels in a vacuum in 1/299,792,458 of a second. In Lebanon, proIranian kidnappers claim to have abducted American writer Edward Tracy (he is released in August 1991). Jaffna hospital massacre is carried out by Indian Peace Keeping Force in Sri Lanka killing 70 ethnic Tamil patients, doctors and nurses. North Korea nuclear weapons program: North Korea and the United States sign an agreement that requires North Korea to stop its nuclear weapons program and agree to inspections. In Seoul, 32 people are killed when the Seongsu Bridge collapses.

• Fill the grid with the set of given numbers (1 to 12) to satisfy the Equa demands (7 to 24) in the shaded boxes. The Equa demands represent the sum of the digits that you will insert into the empty squares. • Each horizontal row has one Equa demand to satisfy; each vertical column also has one demand to satisfy. Each empty square in the grid dictates the math operation (addition +, subtraction -, multiplication X, and division ÷) that must be performed to meet the demands. • You must follow the given math operations for each square and you must make sure all the numbers satisfy the demands in the shaded boxes when connected in adjacent threes and calculated together from left to right, and top to bottom. • The numbers you insert into the grid must satisfy the Equa demands both horizontally and vertically.
