Residents discuss beach club BY MELODY HANATANI Daily Press Staff Writer

THE BIG WINNER ISSUE

PACIFIC COAST HIGHWAY As the former estate of film star Marion Davies enters the last several months of redevelopment, city staff is putting the finishing touches on a variety of programs and policies for what will be the first public beach club in the nation. The Community and Cultural Services Department hosted a public outreach meeting on Saturday to solicit feedback on a variety of issues for the Annenberg Community Beach House, covering topics such as reservations and use, special event rentals, and parking and transportation. The new beach club is expected to open in April 2009 and will be accessible to everyone, regardless of residency.

“The very concept of a public beach club is something new and different,” said Jessica Cusick, the cultural affairs manager for City Hall. The property was once the site of a 110room mansion that was designed by the late newspaper tycoon William Randolph Hearst for the silent film star, who hosted lavish parties at the estate. The mansion was sold in 1945 and operated as a hotel for several years. The site went through a series of changes over the next 50 years, including operating as the Sand & Sea Club, until the Northridge Earthquake hit and City Hall had to condemn many of the damaged buildings. The Annenberg Foundation in 2005 donated $27.5 million to redevelop the property into a public beach club. What remains today from the original estate is the

pool and guest house. Much has been built around the two original historic structures to fill out the remainder of the club, including beach volleyball and tennis courts, an event house, splash pool, and gardens and picnic area. The Back on the Beach Cafe on the south corner of the property has been renovated and will be reopened with the club. A separate concession stand that will rent out equipment has also been constructed at the north corner of the property. Due to the small number of parking spaces on site — about 277 — the Big Blue Bus is developing a new line that will take residents directly to the beach club. Callie Hurd, the open space manager for City Hall, said that staff is still trying to work out several issues with the beach club, SEE CLUB PAGE 11

CULVER CITY There wasn’t a trace of tension or nervousness on Michelle Loewenstein’s face as she calmly uttered her selected three consonants and one vowel. The category to solve the two-word phrase was “around the house” and Vanna White, one by one, flipped the Santa Monica resident’s choices on the board — C, D, M, A — which accompanied the pre-existing L, E, and T. About five seconds later a smile curled on Loewenstein’s lips as she turned to “Wheel of Fortune” host Pat Sajak and correctly responded, “Leaky faucet?” It was a magical moment for the 24-yearold newlywed and floral designer who grew up watching the iconic game show with her father as a young girl in Edison, NJ, seeing a dream come true when she walked away with the big prize in August. The episode aired on Oct. 14. While Loewenstein was ecstatic that she correctly solved the puzzle, there was still the looming question as to whether she would be the popular game show’s first million dollar winner. It was on her first spin earlier in the show that Loewenstein landed on the million dollar wedge, which had just been recently added. She needed to hold onto the wedge, avoid going bankrupt and move onto the final round just to have a crack at the million dollar prize. Just moments before the final round

TOUGH LOSS

Morgan Genser news@smdp.com Santa Monica High School's Luke Zelon (right) leaps into the air to make a catch over Beverly Hills High School's Steven King at Corsair Field on Friday night. The Vikings lost the key Ocean League game, 10-26. With the loss, Samohi falls to 6-1 (1-1) on the season.

Man sentenced for threatening congressman THE ASSOCIATED PRESS POMONA A Santa Monica man has been sentenced to a year in a mental health facility for making death threats against a congressman

because he believed the government was preventing him from wearing women’s underwear. Thomas Aaron Brothers, 41, was sentenced Friday in Pomona. In August, he pleaded no contest to a felony charge of threatening a government official.

Prosecutors say he threatened to kill Rep. David Dreier during one of several June phone calls to the congressman’s district office in San Dimas. During the calls, Brothers complained of government harassment for wearing women’s underwear.

investors linked to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is pressing regulators to speed up a review of its proposed $2 billion solar-energy complex, warning that delays would send a “chilling signal” to the emerging green power industry. But the California Energy Commission staff opposes the move, depicting it as an end run that could break apart a precedent-setting review of the planned solar site near the Mojave Desert Preserve. At the center of the dispute is a project widely viewed as a potential breakthrough in large-scale U.S. solar development. BrightSource Energy is seeking permission to build three solar-power plants on nearly 6 square miles of federal land along the Nevada state line — the first ever on Bureau of Land Management property. The BrightSource project is one of dozens seeking to claim more than 1,000 square miles of federal land in California for solarpower generation, an area larger than the Hawaiian island of Maui. With the potential to be the first large-scale solar plant on BLM property, the complex review is being closely watched since it will set the stage for others that follow. In documents filed with the state, BrightSource says it should have received approval this month but a decision might not come until early 2010. On that schedule, which would delay the start of construction, the company could not meet contracts to begin delivering power to the state’s largest utility, PG&E Corp., in mid-2011. BrightSource is “tremendously concerned” about the prospect of delays and warns that a sluggish pace in reaching a decision could send “a chilling signal to largescale solar developers and their investors,” according to documents filed by company subsidiaries with the state. Could California’s green energy revolution lose power? The company says the commission — SEE LINKS PAGE 11

No on Measure AA

Bill Bauer

EDITOR IN CHIEF Kevin Herrera editor@smdp.com

Editor:

RE: Santa Monica College’s $295 million facilities bond Measure AA. Here is the perspective of some Sunset Park residents who live near SMC. While supporting SMC’s educational mission, the Board of Directors of Friends of Sunset Park (FOSP) opposes Measure AA. FOSP, based in the neighborhood that borders SMC’s main campus on three sides, is a city-recognized neighborhood organization. This is the first time it has opposed an education-related ballot measure, and here is why: Measure AA is primarily a bond to allow SMC to continue expanding its facilities. SMC continues to spend over $1 million per year recruiting students from outside its district, from out-of-state and from abroad. Fewer than 5,000 local students attended the college in spring 2008, while 25,000 came from elsewhere. This is the third SMC facilities bond measure in six years — Measure U for $160 million in 2002, Measure S for $135 million in 2004, and now Measure AA for $295 million. But more than $100 million remains unspent from Measures U and S! The $590 million total for all three bonds means that if AA passes, 100,000 Santa Monica/Malibu residents will pay out over $1 billion, including interest, or an average of more than $10,000 per person. (There is no exemption for seniors). So local residents will pay for the construction, although just 16 percent of SMC students live in Santa Monica/Malibu. By contrast, more than 80 percent of the 12,000 K12 students in Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District (SMMUSD) live locally. The school district has passed only one facilities bond measure since 1998, despite having many 1930s and ‘40s buildings on its 16 campuses that need safety upgrades or replacement. That should be a higher priority than expanding SMC. Measure AA’s campaign committee has a $450,000 budget, with money coming from KCRW, the SMC Foundation, the Associated Students, and fundraisers. In 2002, SMC assured the FOSP Board that if Measure U passed, SMC wouldn’t need another bond measure “for decades.” Two years later, Measure S appeared. Now, it’s Measure AA. West L.A. College has only about 8,000 students on its roomy 70-acre campus (114 students per acre). SMC has about 30,000 students on a 40-acre campus (750 students per acre). To accommodate the crowd, SMC has purchased property all over Santa Monica: the Main Campus; the Administration Building at Pico & 27th; the Airport Arts Campus; the Bundy Campus; the Emeritus College on Second Street; the Academy of Entertainment and Technology on Stewart; the Madison Performing Arts Center on Santa Monica Boulevard; a vacant lot at Pico and 14th; and it uses John Adams Middle School and Santa Monica High School classrooms. Although some shuttle buses carry students among the various campuses, many students drive, increasing traffic congestion and parking hassles. Constant growth makes financial sense to SMC: the majority of its operating expenses come from the state legislature, based on enrollment. So the more students, the more state money SMC gets. The constant expansion has led to the trustees referring to SMC as a “regional education center” and to Santa Monica as a “college town.” Berkeley, Davis and Palo Alto may be classic college towns; Santa Monica is not. Opponents of Measure AA include SMC instructors, classified staff, students, and alumni, as well as residents most negatively affected by SMC-generated traffic congestion, parking problems, litter, and construction noise and dust.

Squirm Night: A taste of politics Part of the Daily Press “Squirm Night” last Wednesday night at the Santa Monica Library featured candidates for City Council. While it was a notable public service provided by this newspaper, the sheer number of candidates running for office presented problems. Fourteen people were crammed onto a small library stage. And by necessity, answers to questions had strict time limitations to give everyone an equal opportunity to speak. One could only get a “taste” for the candidates, especially the non-incumbents. Still numerous subjects —- polluted beaches, high school and commercial parking, rent control (that’s still an issue?), development and panhandlers — were discussed. But, I was hungry for more information. Solving the homeless situation is still an elusive goal. We heard the usual accolades for city-subsidized homeless services mostly from council incumbents. Numerous candidates expressed the need for more housing. One of the “squirm” questions was, “When you are approached by a panhandler, what do you do?” A couple of candidates pointed out that some panhandlers were not “homeless” but “career beggars.” Incumbents Richard Bloom, Ken Genser and Herb Katz oppose ballot Measure T that would cap commercial development in the city for the next 15 years. Incumbent Bobby Shriver and leading challengers Ted Winterer and Susan Hartley support T. When the issue of campaign contributions came up, the incumbents all admitted to taking developer money but stressed it didn’t affect their decision-making. Bloom claimed he didn’t remember specific individual donations, while Katz said, “A $250 maximum contribution isn’t likely to influence anyone’s thinking.” Shriver said he received “a few” unsolicited checks. Genser, who’s received a total of $2,000 from eight individuals connected with just one developer alone, Hines (who wants to substantially redevelop the Paper Mate property on Olympic Boulevard), claimed contributions don’t influence his thinking. Houston, Texas-based Hines has also contributed $100,000 to “No on T.” Almost all challengers said they wouldn’t take developer money. Being that many of their campaigns are limping financially, it’s a safe bet they won’t be receiving developer checks, unless they’re from family members. Redevelopment of Lincoln Boulevard came up. Genser, who seems to be stuck in a rut (or marooned on a traffic median) these days, made his usual traffic jamming suggestions: Pedestrian crosswalks, pedestrianfriendly median islands... maybe a parking district... attract neighborhood serving businesses... and no tall buildings. Winterer suggested turning Lincoln into a pedestrian friendly street and replacing car repair facilities with mixed-use buildings up to three floors tall. Bloom suggested an end

to car repair shops and the need for neighborhood-serving businesses. Likewise, Katz suggested cleaning up Lincoln by building parking structures and getting rid of unsightly auto repair shops. Hartley pointed out that those mostly “mom and pop” car repair shops and tire stores are neighborhood serving businesses. Good for Hartley. I’ve been going to the same mechanic for almost 25 years — European Exclusives on Lincoln near Ashland Avenue. Mom and pop repair businesses like European Exclusives would close or move out of town. If they stay, they’ll face much higher rents in new, redeveloped mix-use buildings, even if car repair is permitted under proposed new zoning codes. We’ll all trek to Venice, Inglewood or “Hells’ half acre” to get our cars serviced which is definitely not “neighborhood serving.” Unfortunately, the five Treesavers challengers turned much of the evening into a mutual love-fest. This tree nonsense has been hyped by a couple of candidates strictly for self promotion. They’re not savvy enough to realize nobody cares. There are much bigger fish to fry. I’m not mentioning any names here, but candidates who think the city’s trees are a major issue are seriously lost in the woods. Nevertheless, there was a query about establishing a tree commission. Surprisingly, everyone thought some form of an advisory tree commission was a good idea. Just what we need, another city “advisory” commission for staff to manipulate and City Council to ignore. I sure don’t want members of Treesavers micro-managing the city landscape. Let city forester Walt Warriner do his job. CALLING PEOPLE OUT

Which Santa Monica City Councilman phoned Los Angeles City Councilman Bill Rosendahl last week and dressed him down for endorsing Measure T? Win or lose, T is causing such a rift politically; the acrimonious divide will last long after the election and could change the face of local politics. A big shake-up in Santa Monicans for Renters’ Rights is inevitable — and overdue. HALLOWEEN TIME

Speaking of scary experiences, Friday night is Halloween night. There’s no better place to spend the spookiest of evenings than PAL-loween at the Barker Hanger at 3021 (South) Airport Ave. from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Round up the kids and prepare for a terrifying time courtesy of the Police Activities League (PAL).

Is it time for a rebellion? MERE DAYS AFTER PRESIDENT BUSH

signed into law an $810 billion bailout bill aimed at rescuing Wall Street financiers, one of the recipients, American International Group Inc., threw a $440,000 bash for its executives at a swanky resort, complete with spa treatments, banquets and golf outings. At the same time that AIG execs were celebrating lavishly, indirectly at taxpayer expense, nearly 12 million American taxpayers, who owed more on their mortgages than their homes are worth, were in danger of foreclosure. As if it weren’t bad enough that a fiscally irresponsible corporate America is going to be bailed out at taxpayer expense, Congress included more than $100 billion in pork barrel projects in the bill. This is not relief, it is economic slavery. It has become increasingly clear that the greatest threat to our freedoms — and our bank accounts — does not lurk outside our borders. Rather, it prowls among us, in the form of a government of wolves that is running wild and riding roughshod over our freedoms. There was a time when such a blatant disregard for the burden being laid upon the American taxpayer would have elicited howls of outrage, protest marches and perhaps even outright rebellion. Yet consider this: at its core, the quest for the American dream is about gaining sovereignty over one’s life and property. Without it, there can be no freedom. While we have become accustomed to equating property with land ownership, the term is much more fundamental and personal. It refers to a kind of sovereignty over one’s life and possessions — especially one’s money. Governments generate no wealth on their own. Any resources that they have at their disposal have been appropriated from the original producers of that wealth, the citizens. This fundamental truth has largely been forgotten over the years. With the Wall Street bailout, the President and Congress simply disregarded the clear will of the people. And while secret agreements were obviously made and backroom bargains struck, the Constitution and our rights were not even given a second thought. However, those who wrote the Constitution drafted our founding document with the intention of ensuring that the power of government remained with the people. The Framers wanted citizens to know what the government is doing and

how it spends taxpayer funds. Since the country’s inception, America has been synonymous with the concept that there are certain individual rights and freedoms that no one, not even government agents, can violate. As the Declaration of Independence boldly proclaims: “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.” These were revolutionary ideas in an age of kings and serfdoms, and they served as a springboard for the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. These rights were considered absolute and so precious that no government can violate them. And the early American colonists believed these principles were not only worth fighting for, they were worth dying for. One of these was the right of the people to change or do away with a government that attempts to undermine their rights. As the Declaration concludes, “whenever any form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.” Governments are brought into being to protect our rights. When they systematically violate them, the people have a right — nay, a duty — to resist. This was the true spirit of 1776 that moved the American colonists to start a revolution against a government that was violating their rights. This willingness to stand and fight against corrupt government was what it meant to be an American in our nation’s early years. And if we truly want to be Americans today, it will mean practicing every form of nonviolent resistance available to us as citizens — including picketing, mass protests, sit-ins, boycotts and so on. It will certainly take more than voting for or against a particular politician. Thomas Jefferson was right: “What country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance?” Constitutional attorney and author John W. Whitehead is founder and president of The Rutherford Institute. He can be contacted at johnw@rutherford.org. Information about The Rutherford Institute is available at www.rutherford.org.

Candidates scramble with just days to go BY LIZ SIDOTI Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON Republican John McCain declared “I’m going to win it,” dismissing polls showing him behind with little more than a week to go in the presidential race. Democrat Barack Obama rolled out a new TV ad asserting his rival is “out of ideas, out of touch, and running out of time.” Heading into the final nine days of the 2008 contest, the White House competitors campaigned in key battlegrounds that President Bush won four years ago as the state-by-state Electoral College map tilts strongly in Obama’s favor. Democrats and Republicans alike say it will be extraordinarily difficult for McCain to change the trajectory of the campaign before the Nov. 4 election. “Unfortunately, I think John McCain might be added to that long list of Arizonans who ran for president but were never elected,” McCain’s fellow senator from Arizona, Republican Jon Kyl, told the Arizona Daily Star editorial board in an interview published Sunday. Sparring from a distance, each candidate criticized the other anew in hopes of swaying the roughly one-fourth of voters who are undecided or could still change their minds. Obama “started out in the left-hand lane of American politics and has remained there,” McCain said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” while in Iowa, casting the Democrat as too liberal for a right-of-center country. In Colorado, Obama portrayed McCain as more of the same, saying: “For eight years, we’ve seen the Bush-McCain philosophy put our country on the wrong track, and we cannot have another four years that look just like the last eight.” Obama is working to solidify his lead in national and key state surveys, while McCain is looking for a comeback in a political environment that has become increasingly favorable for Democrats and challenging for Republicans as the global economic crisis dominates the campaign. In coming days, both candidates will focus primarily on Bush-won, vote-rich battlegrounds like Ohio and Florida, which decided the last two presidential elections and could do so again. Pennsylvania is the only state that Democrat John Kerry won four years ago that both candidates are expected to visit before Election Day. With 21 electoral votes, it hasn’t voted for a Republican president since 1988 but McCain is aggressively courting white, working-class voters who overwhelmingly chose Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton in the primary over Obama, who would become the country’s first black president. Obama’s campaign was exuding confidence though leaving nothing to chance. The Democrat hit McCain with the fresh ad, to air on national cable stations, that says he has “no plan to lift our economy up” and, thus, is tearing down Obama with “scare tactics and smears.” “As Americans lose their jobs, homes, and savings, it’s time for a president who will change the economy, not change the subject,” says the ad, which shows McCain and Bush together The Illinois senator was spending the next four days in Bush-won Ohio, Virginia, North Carolina and Florida, with a quick stop in Pennsylvania. Aides say Obama will lay out his closing argument in a speech Monday in Canton, Ohio. Behind the scenes, advisers were preparing the 30-minute advertisement he planned to air Wednesday on national TV networks as part of that last pitch, and also were mapping the transition to the White House. McCain, for his part, was seeking to stay focused on his uphill battle amid new distractions. In the past few days, there has been finger-pointing inside the GOP over who is to blame for McCain’s struggles, reports of friction between his top advisers and aides for running mate Sarah Palin and the continued fallout of the Republican National Committee’s $150,000 purchase of high-end clothing for the Alaska governor and her family. Even so, McCain appeared undeterred in Iowa, where public surveys show Obama comfortably leading. He was campaigning later in the toss-up state of Ohio, followed by Pennsylvania on Monday, where Obama has the advantage. In the TV interview, McCain said of the race: “We’re going to win it, and it’s going to be tight, and we’re going to be up late” on election night. He dismissed the Palin wardrobe flap and said much of the clothes were immediately returned.

Wall Street workers are leaving NYC BY VALERIE BAUMAN Associated Press Writer

ALBANY, N.Y. Bankers and brokers looking to escape the financial meltdown are scrambling to relocate their families, possessions and rarified talent far from Wall Street to places such as Florida, Chicago, Milwaukee, Virginia and Asia. Travis Lacey left investment bank Jeffries & Co. and Wall Street behind in September to work for Baird in Chicago. He also left behind the nagging sense of worry that had plagued him since his company had started announcing layoffs earlier in the year. “Anyone in that environment, you never know what’s going to happen,” Lacey said. “There are a lot of good bankers that unfortunately are at the wrong place at the wrong time, especially in New York.” Corporate headhunters say Wall Street’s malaise will lead to a permanent talent loss for New York. It could help small boutique firms become bigger players with employees they would never have been able to lure from the city longregarded as the world’s financial capital. “We’re definitely hiring,” said Robert Escobio, chief executive officer of Coral Gables, Fla.-based Southern Trust Securities Inc., a broker-dealer and investment banking firm. “Right now we have the capital, and right now we’re looking to expand. And I think that’s what a lot of boutiques are looking to do, too.” Escobio said in the past few months, one out of every four or five resumes comes from top Wall Street firms — compared with about one out of 100 in years past. Former Wall Streeters also tend to bring clients with larger net worth — another potential long-term blow to firms trying to recover from the meltdown — so boutiques and middle market firms stand to reap the profits. In turn they deliver something that’s currently elusive on Wall Street: stability. Jobs in the financial sector can pay anywhere from $100,000 to well into the seven-figure range depending on location, experience and the size of a firm, said Kimberly Bishop, vice chairman of Slayton Search partners, a Chicagobased headhunting firm. “There’s some talent available to some companies that

wasn’t available before,” she said. Wall Street workers who are thinking about relocating need to be flexible about income, Bishop said. Some junior Wall Street workers may be able to get more senior positions in smaller firms, getting comparable or better pay. But many more will make less while benefiting from a cheaper cost of living outside of New York City. “They are going to make less, most of them,” said Kurt Kraeger, the managing director of the New York Office of Robert Walters headhunting firm. “Even before this (economic downturn), the same type of positions overseas, let’s say, did pay about 20 percent less than you would make here ... the people who go to smaller firms, often times the bonus-

said Peter Kies, a managing director at Robert W. Baird, a Milwaukee-based middle market firm. “As every round of cuts occurred, we got an increasing flow of resumes,” Kies said. “You can have a Wall Street kind of experience and live in Richmond, Milwaukee or Chicago.” Baird has seen roughly 50 percent more applications from Wall Street than they received last year, he said. European and Asian banks are also seeing the abundance of workers as an opportunity to strengthen their position in the U.S. market. “I’m noticing that people are willing to work places that they would have hung up on me if I had suggested it a year ago,” Kraeger said of his headhunting work.

“BANKS (IN NEW YORK AND LONDON) ARE NOT LOOKING TO ADD TO THEIR WORK FORCE IN THE SHORT TERM. THIS MEANS THAT THE VOLUME IS DOWN, SO INSTEAD THE BANKS ARE OPTING TO HIRE ONE SENIOR CANDIDATE RATHER THAN A NUMBER OF MORE JUNIOR ONES.” James Constable Albany Beck Consulting

es are smaller.” New York is the top paying state for personal financial advisers, with an average salary of $131,660, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor statistics. Colorado followed, paying an average of $119,590, then Massachusetts, with an average pay of $116,170, according to the 2007 occupational employment survey. Idaho was the lowest paying state for financial advisers, paying an average of $50,980. West Virginia, North Dakota, Alaska, Nebraska and Kentucky all follow, paying an average below $60,000 a year for the same job. Middle market and boutique firms are also appealing because they offer increased job responsibility and freedom,

More bankers are willing to go to Asia than ever before because it is still viewed as an emerging market, said James Constable, owner of Albany Beck Consulting, an English headhunting firm that places financial workers in jobs from London to Singapore. “Banks (in New York and London) are not looking to add to their work force in the short term,” Constable said in an email interview. “This means that the volume is down, so instead the banks are opting to hire one senior candidate rather than a number of more junior ones.” So far this month, Albany Beck has received 38 percent more resumes from Wall Street candidates willing to work overseas than they did in October of 2007, Constable said.

LIVING DEAD

Fabian Lewkowicz FabianLewkowicz .com Artist Janet Rodriguez places flowers onto her alfombras de aserrin (sawdust carpet) during Edison Language Academy's sixth annual Day of the Dead Fall Festival on Saturday. The making of alfombras de aserrins dates back to the Mayans.

Beach club set for debut in April ‘09 FROM CLUB PAGE 1 including what services to charge for and hours of operation. The current proposal is to charge adults $10, seniors $5, children $4 and families $24 to use the pool, changing room and splash pool. The fee doesn’t include an optional $5 reservation charge to hold a spot at the pool, which could prove necessary during the busier summer months. Reservations will have to be made three days in advance. Certain areas of the property, such as the garden and play area, will be free all year long. The non-refundable reservation fee is meant to protect from last-minute cancellations. It will include reservations for up to one parking spot, eight pool passes and one tennis or volleyball court usage. The suggested hours of operation are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekends from May to September, with similar hours during the weekdays. The beach club will also be open for 40 days from October to April in case there is a warm spell, Hurd said. Both the hours and admissions fees received resistance from residents in attendance who felt that some sort of monthly pass should be made available because the price could be cost prohibitive for those who want to use the pool several times a month. For example, a resident using the pool would have to pay $150 for 10 visits, assuming they make a reservation each time.

Hearing scheduled today FROM LINKS PAGE 3 whose five members are appointed by the governor — needs to “send the right signal ... that California welcomes and supports” solar investment. A hearing is scheduled today. The company wants a schedule that would produce a decision by next summer. The Associated Press reported earlier this month that a Schwarzenegger relative, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., and his former environmental secretary, Terry Tamminen, are part of a private investment group that could score a lucrative payoff if regulators approve the BrightSource complex. Both are senior advisers for VantagePoint Venture Partners, which has a multimillion-dollar stake in BrightSource. The personal connections have raised questions about possible favorable treatment for a project; the company has called the joint state-federal review transparent. The governor’s office says he is not involved with the proposal or its investors. Yet it’s clear Schwarzenegger sees his support for the solar industry as a plank in his nascent legacy. “My vision is that when I fly up and down the state of California that I see everything blanketed, every available

Staff is suggesting that up to 75 percent of the pool’s maximum occupancy come from those who make reservations, leaving 25 percent for walk-ins. Residents also suggested expanding the hours of operation, pointing out that there are people who might want to swim early in the morning and later in the evening. Operation of the beach house is expected to cost City Hall approximately $3.3 million a year. Revenues — which would come from concessions, special event rentals, programs and pool fees — is estimated to be about $1.5 million a year, leaving City Hall to subsidize the rest. “We have our work cut out for us,” Hurd said regarding the deficit. Residents for the most part seemed pleased by the prospect of a public beach club. Eve Lichtgarn, who lives north of Montana Avenue, said she was impressed with the features that will be included in the club, specifically pointing out a newly installed boardwalk that will go from Annenberg to near the water. The life-long Santa Monica resident said she also didn’t find any problems with the fee structure. “It sounds extremely reasonable to me,” she said. “It’s right in the range where I thought it would be.” The plans will go before the Recreation and Parks Commission in the next few weeks and later to the City Council for a study session. melodyh@smdp.com

space blanketed, with solar — if it’s parking lots, if it’s on top of buildings, on top of prisons, universities, government buildings, hospitals,” the governor said Thursday in Bakersfield, where he attended the opening of a small pilot solar plant run by Ausra Inc. “Solar, solar, solar, that is my goal,” he said. The sprawling BrightSource complex would collect sunlight reflected from more than 200,000 mirrors, each covering about 76 square feet. The sun’s power is used to heat water and make steam that drives turbines, creating electricity. The commission is conducting its review with BLM, which must agree to lease its land. The review has generated thousands of pages of documents and studies, dealing with issues from possible erosion to the impact on the protected desert tortoise. Some solar developers have purchased or leased private land to sidestep a review by two agencies unfamiliar with working together. “We feel that the best way to meet our customers’ needs in a timely, reliable manner is to initially build on private land,” said Rob Morgan, executive vice president for Ausra, which is building a large plant in San Luis Obispo County. “We can address permitting and environmental impact issues more swiftly and cost-effectively on private land."

began, Sajak turned to Loewenstein’s husband — Donald Moore — who was clutching the wedge, asking “how’s does that feel holding that thing.” Moore joked that he hopes it buys the couple another dog. Loewenstein spun the wheel for the final round, which included an envelope that awarded the million dollar prize. After correctly solving the last puzzle, Sajak opened the envelope, turned to the eager contestant, and said, “You better go shopping for that dog.” The rest is “Wheel of Fortune” history. “It was just incredible,” Loewenstein said. A floral designer at Cosentino’s Malibu Florist, Loewenstein became the first contestant to win the million dollar prize on “Wheel of Fortune,” which is taped at Sony Pictures in Culver City. She plans to use the money toward a new house and car. The life-long fan of the show considers herself a seasoned veteran, having played along her entire life. “Everytime we would play along people would say we should try to get on,” Loewenstein said. After she turned 18 she started calling the show to try and get an audition, not having any success until she moved to Santa Monica about a year ago after getting engaged to her long-time boyfriend. She received an e-mail from the show earlier this year asking her to come in for an audition. The audition consists of a mock game to test contestants’ skills to make sure they can spell and are good at solving puzzles. Producers also look for enthusiasm and onscreen personality. All contestants have to be at least 18 years old. After making the cut, producers informed Loewenstein that she would be

called back for a taping, which would be anywhere from two weeks after the audition to 18 months. After returning from her honeymoon in early August, Loewenstein received a call asking her to come in that week for a oneday taping, which took place on Aug. 8. “I was so excited,” she said. “I was just excited to be able to do anything with ‘Wheel of Fortune.’” She was among 15 contestants who would be part of five different shows that would be taped that day. While Loewenstein was confident in her abilities to perform well, she was nervous about calling out the wrong answer. “I’m usually the person yelling at the person [on television] for doing that,” she said. To her surprise, she instantly landed on the million dollar wedge. The biggest challenge came after the taping when Loewenstein had to remain tightlipped about the show’s outcome. “I tried to figure out what it was but she couldn’t tell me,” Kara English, the manager at Cosentino’s Malibu Florist, said. “She seemed pretty happy so I thought it must’ve been something good. “I was pretty shocked it was so much [money].” Loewenstein returned home to New Jersey to watch the airing of the show with her family. They were seated and were about to watch the show when a camera crew burst into the house to tape the family’s reaction. “Everyone kept asking what was going on and I said keep watching,” she said. One of the biggest reactions came from her father. “He was just so proud,” she said. “He knew I always wanted to be on the show and he was just so happy.”

LOS ANGELES Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa joins the Million Pothole Club on Monday when he takes shovel to asphalt on a San Fernando Valley street. Villaraigosa’s office says the mayor will help repair a pothole in Toluca Lake, in the city’s San Fernando Valley, during a Monday

morning news conference. According to the city, it will be the one-millionth pothole repaired in Los Angeles over the past three years. The Department of Street Services says it costs $5 to $21 to plug a pothole with asphalt. In March, a group funded by the construction industry said Los Angeles has the bumpiest roads in the state.

WATER WOES: Today fully one-sixth of the world’s human population lacks access to clean drinking water, and more than two million people — mostly kids — die each year from water-borne diseases.

Warring over water Dear EarthTalk I saw a cover line on a magazine that said, “The next world war will be over water.” Tell me we’re not really running out of water!

world’s human population lacks access to clean drinking water, and more than two million people — mostly kids — die each year from water-borne diseases. The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), an independent organization that provides economic, development and humanitarian assistance around the world in support of the foreign policy goals of the United States, predicts that by 2025, onethird of all humans will face severe and chronic water shortages. Needless to say, water is of primary importance to our survival, and protecting access to and the quality of fresh water supplies will likely become more and more of a challenge in the coming years. According to the non-profit World Water Council, the 20th century saw a tripling of the world’s population while freshwater use grew by a factor of six. With world population expected to increase as much as 50 percent over the next half century, analysts are indeed worried that increasing demand for water, coupled with industrialization and urbanization, will have serious consequences both for human health and the environment. Access to freshwater is also likely to cause conflicts between governments as well as within national borders around the world. According to USAID, the world’s “water crisis” is not so much an issue of scarcity as it is of poor management and inequitable distribution. The hardest hit regions have been countries in the Middle East, North Africa and sub-Saharan Africa. Worldwide

demand for water is presently doubling every 21 years. Water-related problems are not the sole purview of the developing world though. We here in North America have polluted and diverted our fresh water supplies far beyond nature’s capacity to restore the flows, notably in the West where sprawling, thirsty metropolises have grown up in deserts where the only way water can be provided is to siphon it from other regions. So how do we fix the world’s water woes? The key lies in using water more efficiently — especially in agriculture and industry, which together account for over 90 percent of the world’s total freshwater use. But changing the practices of millions of farmers and businesses around the world is a Herculean task. Irena Salina, director of the award-winning documentary film, FLOW, about the world’s dwindling water supplies, thinks it can be done if world leaders, international banks, the United Nations and other governmental organizations establish cooperative agreements for the use of bodies of water, including groundwater, and economic mechanisms to make sure those who need access to water can get it. As for the developed world — where we use 10 times the water as do developing countries — Salina remains pessimistic. “If our own leaders were serious about solving problems, we would not allow corporations to discharge pollutants into our water sources,” she says. “Instead of spending billions on technologies that clean up pollution, we would be using resources to prevent water pollution in the first place.” Want to talk environment?

Trash is turning into key power source for state BY DAVID PORTER Associated Press Writer

E landfill, you get a panoramic view of the Meadowlands sports complex to the north and the New York City skyline to the east. You’re also standing on a critical part of New Jersey’s, and the nation’s, energy future. Decades worth of household trash, construction waste and assorted refuse buried in the landfill is providing electricity to thousands of homes. “It’s like you’re buying back your own garbage, but in a different form,” said Tom Marturano, director of solid waste and natural resources for the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission, which owns and operates the 1-E site. The Kearny site is among 21 landfills in New Jersey where methane gas produced by decomposing garbage is used as fuel to generate electricity, according to the state Board of Public Utilities. That is almost as many as in the state of Texas, and more than the combined number in Georgia, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas and Oklahoma. Nationwide, the federal Environmental Protection Agency counts 455 landfills that use their methane to generate electricity and has targeted more than 500 more as potential candidates through its Landfill Methane Outreach Program. One of New Jersey’s leading environmentalists envisions the state’s landfills someday making more use of their sites by installing wind and solar power to supplement methane. “We see landfills as potential New Age energy plants, because you can combine all three and create a steady source of power — and not everybody wants a windmill in their back yard,” said Jeff Tittel, executive director of the New Jersey chapter of the Sierra Club. Marturano cautioned that adding wind farms might take a while since landfill surfaces are constantly shifting, but the Meadowlands Commission already has plans to install 20 acres of solar panels on the southern side of the 1-E landfill. Gov. Jon S. Corzine’s Energy Master Plan for the state touts landfill methane gas as one of the key renewable energy sources that the state hopes will combine to supply 30 percent of New Jersey’s electricity consumption by 2020. According to the plan, New Jerseyans produce 6.7 pounds of trash per day, 50 percent more

than the national average. While wind and solar power are in their relative infancy in New Jersey — Corzine recently announced the state’s first offshore wind power project — landfills in the state have been collecting methane gas and using it as fuel to generate electricity for more than two decades. Mike Winka, director of the BPU’s Office of Clean Energy, said new landfills in New Jersey are required to be designed to accommodate methane gas collection. Existing landfills can produce methane long after they’ve been shut down. For example, the freshest garbage in the Kingsland landfill, adjacent to 1-E, dates from 1987, according to Marturano. That means the half-eaten Big Mac you threw away at the end of the Reagan administration may be helping to light your neighbor’s home today. Marturano estimates the 1-E landfill can keep collecting methane for 20 more years or so. He said the energy produced by the four landfills in the Meadowlands district powers about 25,000 homes. The Edgeboro landfill in East Brunswick, operated by the Middlesex County Utilities Authority, has been collecting methane since 2001 and currently generates about 13 megawatts of electricity, enough for about 13,000 homes for a year, according to Public Service Electric and Gas, the state’s largest utility. The Middlesex County agency uses the electricity generated by the Edgeboro landfill’s methane to power the county’s wastewater treatment plant in Sayreville. Last year, that saved the authority about $3 million, according to executive director Rich Fitamant. Methane gas is produced by microorganisms that feed on organic matter in trash. The bacteria are not picky eaters and have adapted to feasting on wood, cardboard or plastic if food waste isn’t available. “It’s evolution on a fast track,” Marturano said. Long tubes with perforated bases are drilled down into a landfill to collect the methane gas, which then is used as fuel to drive generators. Inactive landfills like 1-E are capped, usually with a plastic or rubber covering that prevents excess gas from escaping. “People used to think of the landfills as wasted space,” Marturano said. “But we’re turning them from the juvenile delinquents of the district into productive members of society."

‘Sesame Street’ star an accidental role model BY MELISSA RAYWORTH For The Associated Press

Roscoe Orman never set out to be an expert on parenting. Back in the mid-1970s, he was best known for starring as a pimp in the blaxploitation flick “Willie Dynamite.” Young, handsome and socially conscious, Orman devoted himself to the provocative stage shows of New York’s emerging black theater scene and campaigning for civil rights. He’d also taken a fun, part-time gig playing a guy named Gordon Robinson on a children’s show called “Sesame Street.” But as the third actor to play Gordon in just five years, he had no reason to assume he’d stick around for long. Today, as a father of four and grandfather of five, he’s been dispensing wisdom and kindness for nearly 35 years as the street’s resident dad. The role of Gordon — a job he once assumed would be a tiny piece of his theatrical career — has turned him into a role model and touchstone for a generation of young parents. “It’s kind of a humbling experience to have hundreds, thousands of adults and children react to me in that way,” he says. “I became a parent the same year that I began on ‘Sesame Street’ ... I had no idea what I was getting into on either side.” At live events these days, parents are sometimes more excited than their offspring to meet him. “Elmo, of course, is the favorite among the littlest kids. I tend to come out a little ahead with the grown-ups,” Orman says. Some ask for parenting advice. Others just want to shake Gordon’s hand. Classic Gen-X TV dads like Mike Brady, Tom Bradford and Mr. Drummond are long gone. But Orman’s Gordon, a father figure kids grew to trust in the 1970s and 1980s, still inhabits the sunny sidewalks and brownstone stoops of “Sesame Street.” The preschoolers and the world around them have changed, but Gordon still calmly handles the problems they face. He patiently teaches the alphabet to humans and muppets alike, and even coaxes some warmth from Oscar the Grouch on occasion. Two other actors played Gordon first, but the role grew once Orman arrived, says Michael Davis, author of “Street Gang: The Complete History of Sesame Street,” due out in December. “Immediately, Gordon became a much more mature, accessible, warm, multidimensional character who could play comedy but also could play serious,” he says. “He just emanated so much trust and believability. They were very fortunate in their casting of Roscoe, and he was fortunate to find that role. It suits him perfectly.” He points out that Gordon and Susan have the longest African-American marriage in the history of television. “They have successfully used Roscoe in so

many situations to project an image of men — not just African-American men but men period — that is so positive and so strong,” Davis says. “It sounds funny, but ‘Sesame Street,’ in a way, prepared the electorate for the age of Obama. For a lot of people in that 20-to-40-year-old range, the first vision they got of a neighborhood where people coexisted harmoniously was Sesame Street.” While Orman’s Gordon character has become a role model for reasoned, caring parenting, the real Orman sees himself strictly as a storyteller, and is currently writing and illustrating his second children’s book, “Ricky’s Hunting Lesson,” a follow-up to last year’s “Ricky and Mobo.” Orman prefers giving parents tools rather than lessons, sharing pieces of his own history to help parents find their way. His 2006 autobiography, “Sesame Street Dad,” touched on his parenting experiences but stopped short of giving outright advice. This month, he signed on as “chief storyteller” for AudibleKids.com, a social networking and literacy site for kids that offers digital books. He is recording a series of audiobooks (including the Barack Obama biography for young adults, “Yes. We. Can.") and videos instructing parents on using digital audiobooks to improve their children’s literacy. Orman says many parents probably feel “left in the dust,” as he does, when grappling with emerging digital technologies. But given that iPods and cell phones are now a central part of kids’ lives, he’s looking to help parents make them as educational as possible. He likens his new work with AudibleKids to his early days at “Sesame Street,” when many parents and teachers doubted TV could be beneficial for kids. “The television that I grew up with in the 1950s was anything but educational,” he says. Kids loved it, but grown-ups saw it as a little more than a time-waster. “’Sesame Street’ really changed the whole landscape of children’s television forever.” It’s the same thing today, he says, with parents’ new concerns about the digital technology that consumes children’s attention. “For many grown-ups who are not as connected to it, there’s a kind of apprehension and fearfulness about something so new and unknown,” he says. “The children, of course, are totally tapped into it. They take it for granted.” In addition AudibleKids and his book projects, Orman hopes to continue adding to his long resume of film, TV and Broadway credits. And, at 64, he isn’t giving up his gig as Gordon (and his heroic alter ego, “Trash Gordon") anytime soon. It’s the job of a lifetime, he says, to be teaching young kids even as their parents are reassured by his presence. “We really kind of represent something fundamental in terms of their own early development. And now they can share that and have it provided by the same people, by the same program, to their own children.”

SANTA MONICA

NEW YORK Texas Tech has its highest ranking in the AP Top 25 in 32 years, and a chance to make another momentous leap coming up. The Red Raiders moved up to No. 6 in the poll released Sunday as they get ready to host No. 1 Texas. A second consecutive weekend when highly ranked teams ruled produced little change at the top of the media rankings. Texas is a unanimous No. 1 for the second week in a row, receiving all 65 first-place votes, and the rest of the top five remained the same: No. 2 Alabama, followed by Penn State, Oklahoma and Florida. No. 7 Southern California slipped a spot after edging Arizona 17-10 on Saturday night. No. 8 Georgia moved up a spot heading into its huge Southeastern Conference game against East Division fival Florida. No. 9 Oklahoma State dropped two spots after losing 28-24 in Austin to the Longhorns. No. 10 Utah, No. 11 Boise State and No. 12 TCU all have hopes of breaking into the Bowl Championship Series from conferences without automatic bids. The Red Raiders moved up two spots by overwhelming Kansas, 63-21 on Saturday. Texas Tech hasn’t been ranked this high since Nov. 15, 1976, when coach Steve Sloan had the Red Raiders 8-0 heading into a big home game against No. 9 Houston. Texas Tech lost to Houston, 27-19, and finished that season 10-2 with a loss to Nebraska in the Bluebonnet Bowl. For coach Mike Leach’s Red Raiders, the Texas game will likely be the second of four straight against ranked teams.

Texas Tech’s big win at then-No. 19 Kansas knocked the Jayhawks out of the rankings. After Texas comes to Lubbock on Saturday, the Red Raiders are home for Oklahoma State, then have a week off before playing at Oklahoma. For the Longhorns, the Texas Tech game will be their fourth straight against a team ranked in the Top 11. The Longhorns has navigated safely through Oklahoma, Missouri and Oklahoma State in October, but those games were all at home or on a neutral field. The trip to Lubbock will be the Longhorns’ toughest road test yet. Ohio State dropped three spots to No. 13 after losing 13-6 to Penn State in a game for first-place in the Big Ten. No. 14 is Missouri and LSU dropped four spots to No. 15 after a 52-38 loss to Georgia. No. 16 Florida State, BYU, Ball State, Tulsa and Minnesota round out the first 20. The Golden Gophers, 7-1 after going 1-11 last season, have their highest ranking since the final poll of the 1999 season. The final five include three teams that have yo-yoed in and out of the rankings this season. No. 21 North Carolina and No. 22 Michigan State both dropped out last week but are back in this week. No. 23 Oregon is back in the rankings for the third time this season and first time in a month. No. 24 South Florida is the only Big East team left in the rankings. The Bulls dropped 10 spots after losing 24-20 at Louisville. No. 25 Maryland is ranked for the first time since 2006. Along with Kansas, falling out were Pittsburgh, Georgia Tech and Boston College.

NBA

Warriors coach Nelson on verge of contract extension OAKLAND Golden State Warriors coach Don Nelson said he’s on the verge of agreeing to a two-year contract extension through 201011. Nelson told reporters the deal is financially similar to his current contract, which ends this season. Such a deal would be worth about $12 million for the 68-year-old coach, who trails only Lenny Wilkens in career NBA coaching victories. “It wasn’t my idea,” Nelson said after practice Saturday. “It was fine with me to weigh it year-to-year, but they came to me and wanted me to commit to three years. I’m pretty excited about it.” Warriors spokesman Raymond Ridder said no extension has been signed. Nelson is 1,280-954 in his coaching career, which began in Milwaukee in 1976.

He rejoined the Warriors in 2006 and immediately led the club to its first playoff appearance in 13 years, followed by a 48-victory campaign last season. Nelson also said he has no interest in becoming the Warriors’ general manager if the ongoing differences between president Robert Rowell and top basketball executive Chris Mullin result in Mullin’s departure. Rowell has flexed his muscle in the organization in recent months by apparently overruling Mullin on at least two big decisions: a contract extension for Baron Davis and the club’s decision to suspend Monta Ellis for 30 games without pay after the guard injured his leg in a motorized scooter accident. “I’m supporting Mully the whole way,” Nelson said. “I hope he gets his deal done as well. I love working with Mully."

â–  Least Competent Criminals: (1) A 30-year-old man appears to be the most recent person (according to the account of police in Woodland, Calif., in August) to attempt to throw burning fireworks at a target while traveling in a car, but having the toss fail to clear the window and thus explode inside the car. He was hospitalized. (2) In another familiar scene, two 18-year-old men spotted police approaching their trailerpark home in Salina, Kan., in August, panicked, and tossed illegal drugs out a window. However, police spotted the flying drugs, even though cops had originally intended only to serve warrants on two of their neighbors. The men were arrested. â–  The estimated one million Japanese (almost all males) who suffer from the major anti-social funk called "Hikikomori" and confine themselves inside (typically, a bedroom in their parents' home) for months at a time without live human interaction has been mentioned in News of the Weird in 2000 and 2005. In July, the Japanese software company Avex produced a video to help those men, simply featuring a series of young women staring into the lens, occasionally saying "Good morning," so that Hikikomori sufferers can practice feeling the gazes of strangers.

TODAY IN HISTORY The 26th president of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt, was born in New York City. The first of the Federalist Papers, a series of essays calling for ratification of the United States Constitution, was published in New York. The United States and Spain signed the Treaty of San Lorenzo (also known as "Pinckney's Treaty"), which provided for free navigation of the Mississippi River. Theodore Roosevelt married his first wife, Alice Lee.
