THE BOO! ISSUE

City Council caps 5 and 10K races at three BY DAVID MARK SIMPSON Daily Press Staff Writer

CITYWIDE Following a fiscal year that saw six road-closing races held in Santa Monica,

City Council limited the annual number of 5 and 10K races to three. Previously, City Hall allowed eight 5 and 10K races to be held in the city annually. Five such races were held in Santa Monica last year. Additionally, the Los Angeles Marathon

ends in Santa Monica. For four straight months, from February through May, a race was held in Santa Monica this year. “Residents and businesses have expressed concerns about the number of races being held in the city as they are impacted by street

closures, lack of parking and noise,” said Kathy LePrevost, recreation manager. Santa Monica offers a few different routes, but every route affects sections of SEE RACES PAGE 9

Cops to get new badges

Culver City topples Samohi in overtime

PUBLIC SAFETY FACILITY Santa Monica

CULVER CITY And then there was one. Coming into the game tied for first place in the Ocean League, Culver City and Santa Monica battled through four quarters only to find themselves facing overtime to seize control of the league on Friday at Culver City. After failing to score on their first possession, the Samohi Vikings were forced to play defense and hope they could stop Culver City, giving them one more shot to win. Culver City wasn’t having it. Quarterback Armani Rodgers confidently led his Centaurs to the three-yard line where kicker Nico Melendez nailed a field goal that gave Culver City (4-4) a 3-0 league record and a firm grasp of first place. The loss sent Samohi to 2-1 in league and 4-4 overall. “We should have had that one,” said Samohi head coach Travis Clark. “This is frustrating.” The fact that Samohi even forced an overtime was a victory of sorts. Culver City’s defense dominated the first half, giving the Centaurs a 14-0 lead at the intermission. With a passing game that was struggling, Clark went almost exclusively to the run giving senior running back Kwame Duggins plenty of chances to lead the offense back into the game.

Police officers will soon be sporting new badges. The redesigned, full-color badge will restore the image of City Hall, which had been missing for the last decade after former Chief Jim Butts chose to include an image of the Public Safety Facility to commemorate the opening of the building, which houses the SMPD, Santa Monica Fire Department and Santa Monica Jail. “The new badge embodies the department’s rich past, and acknowledges current attributes, while giving a nod to the bright future,” Deputy Chief Al Venegas wrote in an information item to the City Council. Officers have worn the current shield since 2003. Funding for the new badge — $50,000 — was approved by the City Council in 2007 after officials learned that City Hall was no longer featured. That irked some members of the council, including the late Ken Genser, who felt that residents and visitors needed a recognizable symbol on the badge. No action was taken until this year when the SMPD moved to redesign the shield to include the recently restyled City Hall, which now features its original paint job. Artists’ renderings were used to assist in the design process. Samples were circulated throughout the SMPD so that rank-and-file could give their opinions and make recommendations, Venegas said. The final design continues to be in the shape of a shield. The shield symbolizes that its wearer is a protector of the peace and all people, Venegas said. In uniform, the

Early release draws scant interest in L.A. jails THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LOS ANGELES The Los Angeles County Sheriff ’s Department has tried to reduce jail overcrowding for years by putting low-level offenders into home detention and work-release programs, but those efforts have largely failed to make a dent, a newspaper reported Sunday. The Los Angeles Times reported that many inmates eligible for home confinement claimed they were homeless, opting to stay in jail awaiting a likely early release, rather than spend the rest of their sentence on home confinement. The program ended in late 2010, less than two years after it started. Home confinement is still an option for inmates who volunteer and agree to pay for electronic monitoring, but numbers have plummeted. In March 2010, 225 inmates were on voluntary electronic monitoring. As of Tuesday, there were 77. Inmates also have been reluctant to sign up to be released on condition they work in a supervised job, usually manual labor. In March 2010, 448 were on the work-release program. On Tuesday, there were 204. “There is a portion of the population that would rather sit on their fanny in jail than report somewhere every day and work,” said Sheriff ’s Capt. Mark McCorkle. Sheriff Lee Baca persuaded the state Legislature in 2007

to change the law to allow jailers to require low-level inmates convicted of misdemeanors to serve their sentences on electronic monitoring at home. Baca put the cost at up to $20 a day per inmate, while county jail costs about $118 a day. But some inmates claimed they were homeless. Officials suspect many inmates made the claim so they could stay in jail and take advantage of an early release without any supervision. “People were gaming the system,” said sheriff ’s spokesman Steve Whitmore. The county’s early releases began in the late 1980s after a federal court declared that the jails’ overcrowded conditions amounted to cruel and unusual punishment. The problem has worsened in recent years with the influx of 6,000 inmates under prison realignment, which shifted responsibility for housing and supervising thousands of nonviolent prison inmates from the state to counties. Los Angeles County has been forced to consider more expensive solutions to overcrowding, like contracting with other agencies. The Board of Supervisors last month agreed to a contract with the city of Taft in Kern County that would cost up to $75 million through June 2018. That contract appears to be in jeopardy after a key backer, Supervisor Gloria Molina, signaled that she planned to withdraw her support.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Bill Bauer

Who represents the residents of Santa Monica? Editor:

District-wide voting/elections have proven to be more representative than any other form of government. (District voting is having candidates representing certain geographical areas within the city i.e.; Ocean Park, North of Montana, Pico Neighborhood and other established districts). Candidates associated with these areas have a vested personal interest in how they represent their constituents. They live there! Recently, the City Council has authorized use of public space (parks) especially Palisades Park, for use by for-profit physical fitness trainers. I don’t need to duplicate here all the reasons and observations given by residents during several public meetings and faceto-face council meetings. Not to mention the letters and comments in local media in opposition to this new permitting process which turns public space (maintenance and upkeep paid for by residents) into a personal profit center. Are the council members and staff oblivious to these concerns? Needless to say, the council decided to go ahead and approve this system, all the while ignoring and rejecting all concerns and requests from the citizens to save our public spaces. To emphasize my point further, all neighborhood associations representing their voters opposed this plan. These associations are taxed with the responsibility and duty of representing us as a unified front to the council. Who is the council working for? Most people I talk to who live in SM are very confused and upset with the current representation on the City Council. Rampant oversized and ugly development, granted through dog-and-pony development agreements and all the problems caused by them is an issue. Bloated and unrealistic salaries and benefits for top officials. Wasted and unaccounted for funds, expenditures and results with city projects. Allowing staff and outside consultants to dictate process and outcome of planning and administrative issues. Worst of all, no accountability. Am I acknowledging what is obvious to most informed residents? Until we, the electorate, decide to change the way we elect our representatives this will always be why SM residents are left in the lurch and holding the bag for decisions being made that don’t represent or reflect what we want and deserve. It’s all over the news recently on how local citizens are joining together to change the electoral process within their own communities. Whether because of cultural and race issues (Pico Neighborhood), SMO safety and air quality issues (Friends of Sunset Park) density, traffic congestion, open space and quality of life (all other areas of the city) it’s time for Santa Monica residents to take charge of our future and create a system that truly represents us all.

I wouldn’t touch this poll with a 10-foot pole THE

HUNTLEY

HOTEL,

THROUGH

its public relations firm Sugerman Communications Group, recently released results of a phone poll it conducted of 404 Santa Monica voters in September. It asked opinions about high rises, development and the Huntley’s own nemesis: the competing Fairmont Miramar Hotel expansion across Second Street. Poll takers say that phone calls were placed to homeowners and renters in all parts of the city covering all age ranges. Anything that the Huntley or its PR people do should be looked on with great suspicion — including this survey. Huntley owners and managers along with its various PR entities have been waging a misleading and histrionic propaganda campaign ever since the Miramar Hotel owners announced plans to renovate the entire property a couple of years ago. I’m not saying the survey is totally bogus but after 40 years in advertising and marketing research, I can recognize tricks used to conduct and release to the public the results the survey’s sponsor wants. And, believe me folks, there are so many tricks in this survey that it looks like a magician’s convention. Poll takers made random phone calls to residents and threw technical terms at them such as “density requirements” and “higher density.” Most people don’t know what this means so they probably just said, “No.” A big trick is the “leading question.” “As you may know, the Fairmont Miramar Hotel on Ocean Avenue and Wilshire Boulevard has proposed a redevelopment of the current property that would turn the current hotel into a mixed-use hotel and condominium residence, 320 feet high with 21 stories, with up to 120 market-rate condominiums and between 12 and 40 affordable housing units, 280 hotel guest rooms, underground parking, food and beverage facilities, retail space, spa, meeting and event facilities, and open space areas on site. From what you’ve heard, would you favor or oppose this redevelopment?” The sheer complexity would get a “no” answer from any respondent who could sit through the whole question. The Fairmont could be offering me a free hotel suite for life and I’d still say “no” to this epic. Even the first question is leading. “Do you favor more development, less development in Santa Monica or is the amount of development in Santa Monica happening about right?” Leading with “more” development begs for a “no” answer. Leading with “less” may have elicited far different responses. What were the results, you ask? According to Sugerman PR, a slight majority of the voters said they opposed development while only 15 percent said they favored it. Some 69 percent of questioned voters opposed taller buildings and higher density development. Another 26 percent favored tall buildings and increased density. Of those surveyed 69 percent said they oppose changing density requirements and

26 said they were in favor. A total of 57 percent of the electorate opposed the Fairmont plan expansion said the press handout. This must have been quite a shock to the Huntley organization who’ve worked tirelessly and spent big bucks to give the impression that everyone hates the Miramar expansion. Full survey results, scripts described by those polled as “designed to elicit a specific bias” and error factors were not disclosed, obviously. Best to keep us folks in the dark so there won’t be too many questions about methodology or results. Even the timing of the release of the poll results is suspicious. They came out just days after City Council approved a contract with another polling firm to survey resident opinions on development, traffic and related issues for City Hall. That poll is being written at this time and will be conducted in the weeks ahead.

ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY? SAYS WHO?

editor@smdp.com

Brian Adigwu

Council recently approved continuing to exempt electric and low-emission vehicles from feeding the parking meters. As I have written on prior occasions, the free parking is designed to encourage the use on non-polluting, non-gasoline powered vehicles. It’s all part of the “sustainable, environmental agenda” that’s a top priority, here. Problem is that these measures often do more harm to the environment than good. But, they let our political leaders think they’re helping Mother Earth. It’s delusional. Wouldn’t discouraging the use of any powered, multi-passenger vehicles really be in the best interests of the environment? Do they forget, or ignore that the congestion caused by too many vehicles — whether no-emission or gas guzzling polluters — leads to more vehicles sitting in traffic spewing more pollution into the air? How about development? City Hall goes gaga when a developer promises to put in electrical vehicle charging stations, solar roof panels, drought-tolerant landscaping and bicycle racks. Does this make a 100 unit, five floor apartment building inherently more environmentally friendly than a lot with a small apartment building or a single retail store on it? City Hall doesn’t get it. Staff aggressively supports and then our politicians approve new developments — especially those that contain housing and hotel rooms — under the guise of sustainability and being “environmentally friendly.” But, how can thousands of housing units be ”environmentally friendly” when their occupants consume water, electricity and natural gas and add to sewage, solid waste and air pollution much more than if they weren’t there? It’s like saying that excrement doesn’t smell bad. We’re all on to city leaders who outright exaggerate and obfuscate when they claim that the decisions they make are good for the environment.

ing north into the Midwest from cotton country. Palmer amaranth can shoot up as high as 7 feet, and just one plant can produce up to a million seeds. Herbicide is increasingly futile against it, and the weed’s thick stems and deep roots make it hard work to clear by hand. It can slash yields and profits when it gets out of control. Midwestern weed scientists are sounding the alarm because the plant recently turned up in Iowa and can cause deep losses in corn and soybean yields. “This is not just a nuisance. This is a game-changer,” warned Purdue University weed scientist Bill Johnson, whose state has well-established pockets of the plant. Cotton growers in the South already spend about $100 million a year to try to keep it out of their fields, University of Georgia scientist Stanley Culpepper said. “This is a crop robber,” said W.C. Grimes, who farms 1,600 acres of cotton, peanuts and corn near Twin City in eastern Georgia. “It will steal your profit. It will choke your cotton out, and anything else you’re trying to grow.” Grimes said he was losing up to 200 pounds of cotton per acre until farmers learned the key to overcoming Palmer amaranth’s resistance to glyphosate — sold under brand names like Roundup — was to continuously change herbicides. His advice to Midwesterner farmers: Keep your eyes open and do whatever it takes to kill the weed as soon as it turns up. One thing that makes Palmer amaranth so much tougher than other weeds is that one plant can produce 500,000 to 1 million seeds. A combine can scatter seeds from a couple plants across an entire field, Johnson said, and the untrained eye can’t tell the difference between Palmer amaranth and more common but less aggressive Corn Belt weeds, such as waterhemp and other kinds of pigweed. Palmer amaranth probably took root in Kendell Culp’s fields near Rensselaer in northwestern Indiana last year, but he wasn’t aware of it until a seed salesman spotted it this summer. Culp pulled it up by hand — filling a pickup truck bed from one spot and a half load from another. “Unfortunately I think it’s going to be a

pretty difficult weed to control for us,” Culp said. He’s working with a consultant on strategies for deploying herbicides on his 1,750 acres of corn, soybean and wheat. Palmer amaranth often hitches a ride on dirt stuck to farm machinery. It may also hide in grass seeds planted as cover for conservation programs, experts say. But they disagree on whether the seeds spread through animal feed containing cottonseeds or hulls, which are commonly added to dairy cattle rations. Johnson said the weed is often seen near dairy farms, and the presumption is that when manure from those cattle is spread on fields, the seeds can spread with it. But Culpepper said the research he’s seen doesn’t back up that theory, adding that spreading the idea without proof could hurt demand for cottonseeds — and the entire cotton industry. The infestation found this August in two western Iowa soybean fields probably got there by truck, Iowa State University weed scientist Bob Hartzler said. Despite those fields being adjacent to a stretch of flood plain with poor soil where sludge from a Nebraska company has been spread as fertilizer, he said there’s no reason to think the sludge contained Palmer amaranth seeds. His suspicion is that the seeds were stuck in mud on trucks that hauled the sludge. But Hartzler’s not convinced the weed will be as difficult to manage as many fear. Farmers who already take a proactive approach to common waterhemp should be able to control Palmer amaranth, as long as they try new strategies, he said. Given the weed’s resistance to glyphosate, which is typically applied after weeds sprout, farmers need pre-emergent herbicides to kill the weed earlier in its growing cycle. Those have a much narrower window of time when they can be applied. Palmer amaranth likes long growing seasons and hot, sunny weather, Culpepper said, so it may not be quite as aggressive in colder states. However, he said it’s still going to be “the baddest boy on the block.” The weed isn’t known to have a beachhead as far north as Minnesota, but University of Minnesota Extension researchers have already advised their farmers to be vigilant. “I’d like to say we’re not going to have the problem, but we’re not going to say that,” weed scientist Jeff Gunsolus said.

Waste is an issue for all retail operations, given the need to take in and unpack large numbers of individual items and then display and package them up in a way that customers will appreciate. CalRecycle (California’s Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery) suggests that retailers consider the three R’sreduce, reuse and recycle-when setting up their sourcing, packaging and related procedures. As for reducing, CalRecycle encourages retailers to ask their suppliers to provide items without excess packaging and to reuse whatever packaging they can. Also, stores can give customers the choice of having their purchases bagged-or give a discount to those who bring their own or go without. For reusing, CalRecycle recommends donating old merchandise to charities rather than throwing it in the trash, and looking for schools or institutions that would take display racks and other decor elements from the previous sales season. Posting such items to a materials exchange is a quick way to find takers. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) maintains a state list of material exchanges on its website. Retailers can maximize the amount of recycled packaging in their stores by demanding their suppliers use it. And if a store has enough recyclables it may be able to sell it to an industrial recycler periodically. If a store is in a mall, there may be other opportunities for greening. “Mall property

managers and anchor stores can provide leadership by coordinating waste prevention, recycling and purchasing programs at multitenant complexes,” says CalRecycle. “Mall managers can consolidate efforts among businesses to generate large amounts of recyclable material, thereby making recycling more cost effective.” All big retail chains have sustainability challenges, but the Gap has made great strides in the last decade in reducing waste and its overall environmental footprint. They recently completed a green makeover of their corporate offices in San Francisco, diverting as much as 75 percent of the waste stream there. While the Gap has limited control over what goes on at its retail stores given local rules and systems for waste management, it is partnering with other retailers through industry groups to facilitate recycling in mall store environments and establish lease templates that support waste reduction and other environmental goals. The company is also part of the Clean by Design program, an initiative of the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) to marshal the buying power of multinational corporations (including Wal-Mart, Levi’s, Nike and others) to reduce waste and emissions among suppliers abroad. But just because the company is on the case doesn’t mean new suggestions aren’t welcome. Corporate leaders at companies like the Gap often encourage feedback from workers, especially when it could benefit the company’s bottom line or image. Offering some concrete, succinct examples of ways the company could reduce waste would most likely be the best approach.

Water managers say conservation needed in ‘14 THE ASSOCIATED PRESS FRESNO, Calif. State water officials are warning that low water levels in reservoirs across the state should be a warning that conservation measures might be necessary to get through next year. With little chance for record-rain conditions to develop in the Pacific this winter, the Fresno Bee reports that the state could be headed for trouble. Mike Cowin of the state Department of

Water Resources said a drought has not been declared, but water managers will face a challenge if 2014 is dry. Pine Flat Reservoir in the Fresno County foothills is at 16 percent capacity and most of the state’s other large waterstoring reservoirs are well below normal averages. California is coming off one of the driest winters on record. Most of the state’s water comes from the Sierra snowpack.

Judge: Rich landowner may keep public off beach THE ASSOCIATED PRESS HALF MOON BAY, Calif. A judge ruled this week that an oceanfront property owner may continue to block public access to a Northern California beach, basing his decision on an unusual set of circumstances dating back to the mid-19th century. San Mateo County Superior Court Judge Gerald Buchwald ruled that billionaire venture capitalist Vinod Khosla can legally block the only road to Martins Beach, which is a popular surfing spot south of Half Moon Bay. According to Thursday’s ruling, beachgoers are still allowed to use the 200-acre beach — if they can get there from the ocean. The San Francisco Chronicle reports that a lawyer who filed a lawsuit on behalf of the group Friends of Martins Beach plans to appeal the ruling, arguing that it violates beach access rights under the California Constitution. Buchwald based his decision on the 1848 Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, which settled the Mexican-American War, and required that the United States recognize Mexican

land grants as long as the owner filed a claim. The original owner of the coastal property filed such a claim. The U.S. government challenged his land patent, but the U.S. Supreme Court confirmed his ownership in 1859 — 14 years before the California Constitution was first drafted. The decision is the latest blow in a yearslong battle between beach lovers and Khosla, the Sun Microsystems Inc. co-founder who bought the property for $37.5 million in 2008. The Chronicle reports that after the sale, a gate was put on the road with a sign that said, “Beach closed, keep out.” Jeffrey Essner, attorney for Martins Beach LLC, said he was gratified by the decision. “We are very aware of the community concern about the situation, and it is unfortunate that we were forced into the legal process rather than a conversation with the community,” Essner said. “The property owner strives to be a constructive member of the community, but it is difficult to have this conversation without the legal clarification on property rights and an acknowledgment of those rights.”

Divers work to clear debris off California’s coast THE ASSOCIATED PRESS CHANNEL ISLANDS, Calif. Volunteer divers have dredged up 900 pounds of debris, a half-dozen lobster traps and 1,400 feet of trap line in an effort to clean up the ocean around California’s Channel Islands. The Ventura County Star reported Sunday that the nonprofit group Ocean Defenders Alliance began scouring the area for abandoned ocean gear in September. They have found everything from anchors to decayed traps. Last week, divers recovered a 200-pound net The group has gone to the Channel Islands a half-dozen times, said founder Kurt Lieber, pulling enough trap line to stretch the length of 16 cars on a passenger train. “We’re planning to be up there until the weather pushes us out,” said Lieber, 59. Marine debris — even a cigarette butt — affects everything from the tiniest coral

polyps to giant blue whales. Ocean Defenders Alliance, based in Huntington Beach, formed more than a decade ago and has done much of its work around San Pedro. It has also worked off the coast of San Diego and Mexico’s Baja California peninsula. The SeaDoc Society at the University of California, Davis Wildlife Health Center launched its own gear recovery project in July 2005. The California Lost Fishing Gear Recovery Project has also worked off the Channel Islands. One participant in the SeaDoc Society group said he once found an artificial reef with hundreds of toilets and tires off the Malibu coast. “It was a real junkyard,” said Glenn Dexter, owner of Triton Diving out of Channel Islands Harbor in Oxnard. Dexter returned a year later. “It wasn’t fully recovered,” he said, “but it was coming back.”

RACES FROM PAGE 1 Ocean Avenue and San Vicente Boulevard. Councilmember Bob Holbrook, who lives on San Vicente, described being stuck in his neighborhood for several hours on race days. “When we run one of these races, anyone who lives on the north side of San Vicente cannot get to Santa Monica,” he said. “We have to go to Los Angeles, drive down the Pacific Coast Highway or drive Sunset Boulevard to 26th Street at least. … Do you realize the burden of being cut off from the city for several hours?” Race promoters are required to reimburse City Hall for any services, including use of police and fire departments. The new ordinance, which passed unanimously at the last council meeting, requires race promoters to mail postcards to residents living within 250 feet of the race, up from 100 feet in the old ordinance. The new ordinance also sets a timeframe for the races, with one being allowed in May and two allowed in September, October, or November. Last year, the races included the SM 5000, which benefits the Santa Monica-Malibu Education Foundation, the Leslie Cohen Law 5K, which benefits the Santa Monica High School cross country team and the Public Counsel Debtor Assistance Project, Live Ultimate Santa Monica, which benefits End Child Hunger, the Santa Monica Classic, put on by the L.A.

Riding the momentum, Samohi’s defense shut down what was an efficient Culver City offense during the first half. Just moments after the first score, Duggins did it again. This time with a 12yard scoring run that tied it at 14-14 early in the fourth quarter. “I’m proud of the effort,” Clark said of the comeback. But, effort wasn’t enough. Samohi needed

and the Gobble Wobble. Brennan Lindner, who helps puts on the SM 5000 and the Gobble Wobble, acknowledged that race fatigue had become too much in the past fiscal year. The Gobble Wobble is not coming back, he said. The SM 5000, which has been held in October over the past eight years and has raised $250,000 for the education foundation over the past three years, will likely return. About 15 races are held on the Westside of Los Angeles every year. Culver City holds one race. Beverly Hills hosts only its segment of the Los Angeles Marathon. Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach each hold about three to five races a year, with some occurring on the sand to avoid street closures. Councilmember Gleam Davis, who originally proposed the reevaluation of the race ordinance, noted fitness has been a running theme at council meetings of late. Council recently placed restrictions on fitness trainers who use public parks and denied the appeal of a neighborhood group attempting to block an incoming Crossfit gym. Unlike those two issues, the race ordinance did not draw contentious public comment. “The one thing that has become apparent to me is that we have a community that wants to be fit, and stay fit in very many ways and enjoys these outdoor activities like these races,” she said. “But they really were putting an undue burden in terms of the frequency given that everyone was running the same route.” dave@smdp.com

to score and came up flat to end regulation. Both teams traded jabs, but nobody could break through until Culver City cashed in its only overtime possession, sealing the win. “That’s how we’re built,” Culver City head coach Jahmal Wright said amid a raucous Centaur celebration at mid-field. “My hat’s off to coach Clark, his guys put up a great fight.” The loss may derail Samohi’s quest to three-peat as league champs. With two league games remaining, Culver City is in control of its own destiny. Next for Samohi is a home game against Inglewood on Friday at Corsair Field. The game begins at 7 p.m. daniela@smdp.com

badge is worn on the left side over the heart to symbolize the authority granted to the wearer and in honor of the oath taken to uphold and defend the tenets of the Constitution and the laws of California. The badge is gold and silver. Gold represents the power and strength inherent in the law enforcement function, Venegas said. Silver represents both purity and subtleness of strength, which speaks to the profession’s ability to be flexible enough to change, but with the strength to maintain its core integrity, even amidst change. The leaves of laurel encircling the badge represent the bravery and courage with which the men and women of the SMPD embrace and protect Santa Monica, Venegas said. City Hall is prominently featured, along with the city seal. That represents the SMPD’s commitment to the entity that is the heart of Santa Monica and the source of the SMPD’s authority to protect the public. This is the first time color will adorn the badge beyond the city seal, Venegas said. The original marble white coloring of City Hall, like that of its antiquated replication on the badge, reflects different light patterns with the movement of the sun, Venegas said. The silver rays behind the west facing City hall represent the rising sun, while the gold rays at the base of City Hall represent the setting sun. Each side of the city seal is supported by a stylized iris, a feature which appears in previous iterations of the badge dating back to the 1950s. The three leaves of the iris represent faith, wisdom and valor. The reverse side of the shield is stamped

with the outline of the iconic Santa Monica Pier sign. Contained within the outline is the Latin phrase Justitia Omnibus, meaning “and justice for all,” followed by the initials “KG” for Genser, who passed away in 2010 of complications from a long illness. He was 59. Genser was first elected to the council in 1988 and was selected mayor by his colleagues three times. Genser is recognized, Venegas said, because he pushed for the funding for a new badge. The SMPD ultimately chose EntenmannRovin to produce the badges for $50,000. The Los Angeles-based company, which has specialized in producing badges since 1939, was selected because of the quality of metals it uses, Venegas said. kevinh@smdp.com

SOLUTIONS TO YESTERDAY’S PUZZLE

■ The city council in Washington City, Utah, recently approved the construction of a firing range next to the Dixie GunWorx shop, even though the firing range's neighbor on the other side is a women's domestic-abuse shelter (whose officials fear that gunfire might retraumatize some of the victims who had sought refuge). Dixie's CEO hinted to KSTU-TV that if the shelter victims had been armed in the first place, they could have prevented the abuse. ■ Among the many arrested recently for having solitary sex in public was Philip Milne, 74, ultimately convicted in the U.K.'s Bedford Magistrates' Court of touching himself on a transit bus although he claimed he was merely "shampooing" his troubled genital area and resented "being treated like a hardened criminal." Also, Stuart Clarke, 48, of Provo, Utah, had explaining to do after an incident on Delta Air Lines in 2012. He said that he was rubbing his exposed penis only because it burned from accidental contamination with peppermint oil (which so distressed him that, upon landing, he left behind a checked bag). The FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force found that out and is currently investigating whether there is more to the "peppermint oil" story than embarrassment-avoidance.
