to explore splitting the district along municipal lines. “We formed an impartial ad hoc informational committee to assess the issues surrounding a possible split,” said PTA President Rebecca Kennerly last week. “This is in response to parents’ requests and concerns in Malibu.” The news comes less than a week after a group of Malibu parents told the Board of Education at its Nov. 15 meeting that residents of the northern seaside community no longer have trust in the school board potentially placing an upcoming parcel tax renewal measure in an unfavorable predicament. During the meeting, Malibu

City Councilmember Andy Stern said he recently received calls from 138 angry constituents, only six of which say they now favor Measure R, the parcel tax renewal measure that will be placed on the February 2008 ballot. “The PTA Council’s mission is to advocate the health, welfare and education of all children and that means participating in advocacy that benefits all children,” Kennerly said. “We feel it’s beneficial to explore this issue SEE DISTRICT PAGE 7

COMMUNITYPROFILES MICHAEL CHASE WALKER

A writer writes on BY GABRIELLE HARRADINE Special to the Daily Press

The writers’ strike is in its fourth week and there’s no end in sight, only a small glimmer of hope with the agreement for both groups to get back to the bargaining table today. That makes for hard times for the screen and TV writers belonging to the Writers Guild of America (WGA), and not just financially. According to the WGA’s strike rules, members are not allowed to write anything for the consumption of those belonging to the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers while the strike continues. With all the stress, uncertainty and

time spent picketing it’s unlikely that writers can focus enough to write anyway. Considering that fact, life might be better as a non-union writer these days, where there are no rules to follow and no studios to picket. Michael Chase Walker happens to be one of those. He’s a resident of Santa Monica, and a freelance screenwriter who’s not in the WGA. Every weekday for the past two weeks, Walker has continued to enjoy his morning writing sessions, unlike his peers who belong to the guild. The twist is that Walker was eligible to join WGA, but never did. “I just didn’t have the joiner mentality,” said Walker. “And at that time I didn’t see

myself as a writer.” This fact doesn’t really come as a surprise when you consider the range of things that Walker had done, which included founding an animation studio in Peoria, producing “The Last Unicorn” and working as the Head of Creative Affairs for Rankin Bass Productions. Walker started his journey into film while studying Sanskrit in India. He and George Harrison, of The Beatles, started screening Bollywood films in downtown Bombay because there was a lack of access to the films at that time. The excitement and emotions SEE CP PAGE 7

MALIBU Fire crews hoped mild temperatures and gentle winds Sunday would help them solidify gains against the sprawling wildfire that destroyed dozens of homes in this upscale coastal community. Hot, powerful winds that fanned the blaze across 4,720 acres starting early Saturday were not expected Sunday, Los Angeles County Fire Inspector Ron Haralson said. The fire was about 40 percent contained, with few flames visible to the three water-dropping helicopters deployed over the fire zone, Haralson said. “Winds have subsided considerably and we’re making good headway,” he said. Forty-nine homes were destroyed Saturday by the fast-moving wildfire pushed by Santa Ana winds. Twenty-seven other homes were damaged and 10,000 to 14,000 people were evacuated. The seaside enclave had been recovering from last month’s 4,565-acre Canyon Fire that destroyed six homes, two businesses and a church when the winds began whipping up again overnight Saturday. Some residents whose property made it through last month’s fire unscathed weren’t so lucky this time. “This time I lost,” said a soot-covered Glen Sunyich, who watched his stucco and tile house he built in 1990 slowly burn to the ground. “It means that I didn’t build it well enough.” Hundreds of firefighters and equipment from throughout the state had been positioned in Southern California for most of the week because of the predicted Santa Ana winds. Residents said they have grown accustomed to the potential fire danger when the strong gusts blow. “Waking up at 4 in the morning with the smell of smoke in your nose and the wind beating at the windows is something that we learn to live with here, but it always comes as something of a shock,” Mayor Jeff Jennings said. All of the homes were destroyed in the fire’s initial Saturday morning surge before the winds slowed and firefighters gained a foothold.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Cyclists also play a role in safety Editor:

As an avid bicyclist in Santa Monica, I read (Michael Tittinger’s column) with interest (“Damn the bikes in Santa Monica,” Nov. 21). I make a conscious effort once or twice a week to do my errands around SM on my bike. It’s light exercise, I enjoy the ride, get my errands done and I feel slightly smug for keeping a car off the busy streets and for saving an ounce or two of fuel. I realize that Santa Monica could be more bikerfriendly, however, we bicyclists can make some safe decisions as to which streets to use instead of expecting the entire city to accommodate our every move. I often take smaller streets that are less traveled, ride in the alleys and sometimes — carefully, respectfully and slowly — ride on sidewalks. This is all to look out for my life. I may have certain “rights,” but a car is bigger and faster and could very easily plow me over by sheer accident. That doesn’t make the driver “right,” but could leave me dead or very hurt. My rides are pleasant and fun and self-reliant. What’s this about “it’s supposed to be fun and carefree.” Who wrote that rule? Is that the responsibility of every car in Santa Monica, to make sure your rides are fun and carefree? I don’t think so. When it comes to the beach bike path. It is sometimes frustrating to share it with walkers — that don’t pay attention to bikes or respect that it is a bike path (not a walking path). I’ve nearly hit several people who walk across the path without looking and get very annoyed at those who walk three abreast on the path. It slows the stride of the cyclist to watch out for them and it could be a mangled mess (and surely is sometimes). This is our only opportunity as cyclists to ride unfettered by the dangers and stop-and-go aspects of city streets. It’s too bad the walkers/joggers don’t give us some consideration on that. Thanks for calling attention to the needs of cyclists, but (Tittinger’s) whining style has a tendency to reduce my sympathy. Start some action and I’m right with ya.

Carol Hastings Santa Monica

Carefree days on a bike long gone Editor:

(Re: “Damn the bikes in Santa Monica,” Nov. 21) The days of “riding a bicycle .... supposed to be fun and carefree ... freedom...” (Tittinger) is a dreamer. Those days are gone, gone, gone due to the heavy traffic in Southern California. I, as a pedestrian, have been hit twice, both times by uninsured motorists, both times the light was in my favor. I have been knocked down by a bicyclist while walking on the sidewalk. Pedestrians are also concerned about the environment. Get off the kick that bicyclists are special, entitled. This is 2007, get with it!

M. L. Duncan Santa Monica

A chilling opportunity lost Editor:

(Re: “Chilling out this season,” Nov. 23) Is it just me or are other Santa Monica residents thinking that City Hall has missed a big opportunity? Downtown’s temporary, outdoor skating rink should have been marketed as Southern California’s only sustainable skating rink. The totally green energy consumed in keeping a shallow pond frozen in 70-degree sunshine, the gray water used, the no-drip/no-runoff LEEDS award design are all bona fide selling points ... No?

The neighborhood will surely suffer AT THEIR LAST MEETING, CITY COUNCIL

endorsed a long list of planning guidelines for redevelopment in the mid-city neighborhoods. Word up: Be prepared for more development, density, traffic and congestion The neighborhoods affected are the light manufacturing studio district (LMSD) and Industrial Conservation District (M-1 zone) bounded by the Santa Monica Freeway on the South, Broadway on the North, Lincoln Boulevard on the West and Santa Monica’s eastern border at Centinela Avenue. City planners refer to them as “industrial lands.” They’re anything but. Maybe, that’s the problem. While there is still some “light manufacturing” in the area, these neighborhoods are a mix of smaller retail businesses, newer condominium complexes and a couple of the city’s largest office complexes. Mostly, they’re filled with decades old smaller apartment buildings occupied by longtime residents, seniors and middle- and lower-income renters. I’ve written numerous times about how tenants in aging, low-rise, multifamily buildings are being evicted by speculators and developers, eager to turn limited income generating rent controlled apartments into highly profitable million dollar condos. The area’s current building codes allow enough height and density to make new projects well worthwhile for real estate speculators. Existing low and mid income tenants are victimized and driven out. Neither our politicians or city planners seem to care much about the loss of existing low and middle income housing let alone shown much interest in preserving and protecting it. And, City Hall’s vision of this area’s future proves it. The newly approved “industrial land” guidelines are part of the ongoing update of the city’s General Plan and contain everything but the kitchen sink — including development of light rail/transit stations, workforce housing, live/work “artists” studios and expansion of creative and entertainment related uses. After seeing the city’s disastrous urban plan for our Civic Center — including the 325 unit apartment/condo complex, inappropriately called "The Village" -- one gets chills thinking about an “industrial lands” neighborhood 25 years from now. The guidelines seem to be based on “Smart Growth” principles that suggest concentrating multi-floor, multifamily housing with reduced parking in commercial/industrial areas, downtown and along transit corridors. This includes traffic-congesting, pedestrian-friendly streets with wider sidewalks, narrower traffic lanes, bus and bicycle lanes, curb bumpouts and traffic islands. This mindset is supported by local developers and their employees, activist environmentalists and bike/transit advocates who expect us to give up the yard and family car and learn to love density.

Meaningless catch-phrases such as, "sustainable development that serves the economy, the community, and the environment” and "create compact, pedestrian and bike-friendly neighborhood villages located along transit corridors” are impractical and unrealistic. According to the L.A. Times, (June 30, 2007), “In Southern California, the new, denser transit-based housing projects could actually lead to more congestion rather than less." Statistics gathered by the Southern California Association of Governments show that job centers are moving away from transit lines rather than toward them." Studies indicate that housing near transit does not reduce the use of cars or guarantee residents will even use transit or bikes. Residents changing job locations go back to their private vehicles, so nothing is gained. Even worse, "Neighborhood serving retail integrated into these projects draws many more motor vehicles into the area, putting an additional traffic burden where relief had been promised.” Hmmm. Someone should tell our city planners. But, they’re so locked into "Utopian ideals,” it would be like whistling “Dixie." Nevertheless, staff informed City Council that the former, three-plus acre, Fisher Lumber property (purchased a couple of years ago by the city with promises that it would be used solely for expansion of Memorial Park) was ideal for all kinds of development schemes. “The area capitalizes on the potential for a Midtown Light Rail Transit station at Olympic Boulevard or Colorado,” could provide an “enhanced pedestrian environment connecting medical campuses and Santa Monica College, provide a “jointuse potential with SMMUSD School District” and/or “create a mixed-use, vital, urban neighborhood surrounding the (transit) station. Other possibilities include “expanded park facilities including parking and even expansion over the I-10/Santa Monica Freeway." Medical campuses? Santa Monica College expansion? A new high school? The only thing left out was the public housing -- but you know that’s coming, too. Peggy Clifford recently posted on her santamonicadispatch.com blog, “The planners want to turn something — an enlarged Memorial Park — into everything: housing and retail and a transit station with parking, even some sort of partnership with the School District. In fact, turning something into everything seems to be the one and only ‘guiding principle’ for the entire General Plan revision.” Despite scads of public meetings, residents are still being ignored in a grand rush to develop and congest. As I’ve been saying all along, “There goes the neighborhood.” BILL BAUER is a 36-year Santa Monica resident and can be reached at mr.bilbau@gmail.com.

Tyranny of the FCC mocks ‘open access’ IN JANUARY THE FCC WILL AUCTION OFF

the prized 700 MHz spectrum of wireless bandwidth. But instead of offering the spectrum to the highest bidder to employ it however he judges best (for example, a mobile video-on-demand service), the FCC will force the winner to employ a specific business model — an “open access” Internet network that forbids the spectrum-holder from controlling which devices and applications use its network, regardless of how much bandwidth they eat up. Why? Because the FCC and sundry lobbyists claim, “open access” is necessary for the “public interest.” Wireless companies have rightly criticized “open access” rules as restrictions on free competition that unfairly favor certain business models — namely that of leading lobbyist Google. But the injustice of “open access” is just a symptom of the deeper injustice used to justify it: FCC’s control of the “public airwaves” in the “public interest.” In today’s discussions of FCC policy, it is taken for granted that airwaves are “public.” But it shouldn’t be. As philosopher Ayn Rand argued in a landmark 1964 essay, “The Property Status of Airwaves,” airwaves should be private property. Observe that the broadcast technology that makes the so-called public airwaves a value does not exist in nature. It is the creation of individuals — and, like all humancreated values, its creators earn by their effort a right to their creation. When inventors and engineers first unlocked nature’s potential to carry radio waves, and entrepreneurs began developing the commercial value of radio, the government had a responsibility to define property rights in this sphere — so that these innovators could own and utilize portions of the spectrum without interference by others. There is an exact parallel here to property rights over newly available land. When the western frontier was opened in the 19th century, the government did not declare it public property. Rather, it parceled out the unowned land on a first-come, first-served basis, and then recognized a property right for those who made use of the land for five years. The same type of procedure — enabling pioneers to earn a property right to that which they render valuable — applies to any newly usable portion of spectrum. And, like land rights, once a property right to the use of a given frequency band in a given region is earned, it belongs to the owner unconditionally; he may use it to

offer whatever content or services he judges best, or sell it to someone else to do the same. If the government recognized airwaves as private property, the wireless industry and broadcast media would be transformed. Entrepreneurs would compete freely for ownership of spectrum, and over time, those who sold the most valued product would win out. Unfortunately, our government does not recognize airwaves as private property, and never has. In the 1920s, its response to the development of radio was not to define and protect property rights for the field’s creators, but to nationalize them as “public property.” Consider the injustice of this: the pioneers who envisioned the potential of radio technology, and took the risk of bringing it about, had no more right to their creation than we do, who created nothing. Under the “public” airwaves regime, businesses do not own but merely “license” portions of spectrum — which the government has total authority to control in the “public interest.” The use of spectrum is determined, not by the business that has purchased and earned it, but by the FCC — by whatever it feels is in the indefinable “public interest.” In the realm of media, FCC bureaucrats can effectively censor viewpoints they dislike by revoking broadcast licenses or imposing huge fines. In the realm of wireless data, FCC bureaucrats and Congress can impose more onerous terms on a paying licensee anytime they wish — such as Google’s proposal that licensees be forced to sell large portions of their bandwidth to competitors at FCC-dictated “reasonable” rates, no matter what it does to their business. In all such cases, the creators with the best ideas and the willingness to prove them in a free market are throttled by lobbyists and government officials who can wheel and deal in Washington — and innovation suffers accordingly. Americans need to start recognizing airwaves as the private property they really are, and demand the abolition of the FCC. Then the government can hold a fair and just auction for the 700 MHz spectrum, and the others, in which each spectrum is not licensed but sold — no strings attached.

WEB GREENERY: Green-friendly goods are starting to show up just about everywhere, and the Internet is teeming with Web sites that cater to the eco-motivated consumer.

Going eco-friendly is a download away Dear EarthTalk: What are the best sources out there for environmentally friendly consumer products? I don’t want to have to drive all over creation for green laundry and other cleaning products or to find carpets, bedding and other necessities that won’t bring chemicals into my home.

ALTHOUGH GREEN-FRIENDLY GOODS are

starting to show up just about everywhere, finding all the right products is still not as simple as a one-stop trip to the mall or major grocer. However, there are several reputable websites, mail order catalogs and storefront retailers that cater to the ecomotivated consumer.

THERE ARE SEVERAL REPUTABLE WEBSITES, MAIL ORDER CATALOGS AND STOREFRONT RETAILERS THAT CATER TO THE ECO-MOTIVATED CONSUMER. Online shoppers need not steer their web browser any further than Gaiam.com. The company sells, via its website and a printed catalog, a wide range of green items — from phosphate-free detergents and organic cotton bedding to compact fluorescent light bulbs and backyard composting kits. In 2000 Gaiam acquired RealGoods, the nation’s foremost retailer of “solar living” products, including solar water heaters, energy-efficient lighting and household battery chargers. Beyond mail order endeavors, the merged company also gets green goods out into mainstream retail outlets via partnerships with Target, Borders and others. Another good one-stop shop for green consumer goods is Green Home, which sells

thousands of environmentally responsible home products online. From bedding and table wear to paper goods and lunchboxes, Green Home has the green consumer covered. Green Home was founded by Linda Mason Hunter, author of The Healthy Home: an Attic-To-Basement Guide to Toxin-Free Living, because she was having trouble sourcing environmentally friendly home items. Green Home also publishes the online magazine Living, a repository of feature articles on various aspects of living a greener lifestyle. If you’re more inclined to browsing store aisles than websites, natural foods markets like Whole Foods and Wild Oats (now being acquired by Whole Foods) carry a large number of green lifestyle products on their shelves. These stores aren’t just about organic produce anymore, and now stock everything from green detergents to cookware. Looking for more durable kinds of goods? The best one-stop source for green building materials is Ecohaus (formerly the Environmental Home Center), which stocks and ships a wide range of building materials, household equipment and supplies, kitchen and bath fixtures, flooring, countertops and cabinets, paints, finishes, wall coverings and home energy systems. The company has three stores in Portland and Bend, Oregon and Seattle, Washington, and also sells online. For those harder-to-find green goods, check out EcoSeek.net, which bills itself as “the Internet’s first green product search engine.” The site includes links to and in some cases reviews of more than 6,500 different green products from over 300 merchants. While it’s no one-stop shop — users purchase individual items direct from individual merchants — it does make for some interesting browsing. Another good online stop is EcoMall, which lists thousands of socially responsible manufacturers and distributors of just about every type of green product imaginable. Want to get down to earth?

COMMUNITYPROFILES MICHAEL CHASE WALKER

Freelance writer honors picketers FROM CP PAGE 3 that Bollywood films provoked made Walker realize the power of the cinema. He ended up moving to Los Angeles in 1978, and followed his passion for animation in various forms. Eventually working at CBS TV as their Director of Children’s Programs, Walker helped create 100 hours of network programs, including “Pee Wee’s Playhouse,” “Galaxy High School” and “Teen Wolf.” Walker started focusing on writing when a friend, who had heard so many of his great story ideas, suggested that he sit down and write them out. Walker took the job seriously and after going to a popular Robert McKee seminar, immersed himself in structure. His first completed screenplay was an animation epic entitled “The Mask of the Red Paw.” Walker was later hired as a freelance screenwriter and sent to Jamaica for a year to adapt Timothy White’s biography of Bob Marley dubbed “Catch A Fire: The Life and Music of Bob Marley.” In a 2004 interview for WXYT-FM Walker said, “Talk about pressure. Bob had touched so many people, not a single one could imagine a film in which they did not play a major role. Every Rasta had his own movie version of “Bob and Me” in his head and insisted on running it by me frame-by-frame. It was hysterically funny, but also deeply touching. Bob brought such life and hope to the disenfranchised of Jamaica, it couldn’t help but spread to the entire world.” In addition to writing, Walker has also taught others the craft. He was an adjunct faculty member at the College of Santa Fe in New Mexico for five years in the ‘90s,

where he lectured on the history of animation, beginning to advanced screenwriting and advanced story development, and more recently taught a seminar at New York Film Academy and lectured on mythology at DreamWorks. Walker’s talents don’t end there — he’s also written a book. It’s entitled “Power Screenwriting” and is required reading for students studying screenwriting at UC San Diego. The book also has a rating of four and a half stars out of five at the Amazon online marketplace. Walker has grown to consider himself a writer, but only after putting many years of effort into the craft. Having a regimented writing schedule probably doesn’t hurt to reinforce the title either. He writes everyday for at least three hours and is currently polishing up a full-length biography picture about Alexander Pushkin, the famous and innovative Russian writer, who died from a duel that he initiated against his wife’s lover. Walker is not deeply rooted to any one place, but he has found a home in Santa Monica, where he calculated he had lived off-and-on for about five years. After his morning writing ritual, Walker takes advantage of Santa Monica’s natural beauty, and hits the beach for some fresh air and a little reality. He walks for an hour and half on the bluffs and beach and usually ends up somewhere on the Third Street Promenade. Although he’s a freelance writer, Walker has no plans to cross any picket lines. “I honor the (WGA) writers,” said Walker. “I think the whole industry has to reconsider their business dealings.” news@smdp.com

Committee formed in response to parents’ spending concerns FROM DISTRICT PAGE 1 if parents in our district have a desire to do so and the members of the PTA council have a desire to do so.” The PTA has not taken a position on the issue yet, Kennerly has stressed. Some Malibu parents say they’re outraged that the Board of Education approved a recommendation by the Measure BB Advisory Committee that they believe shortchanged the Malibu Middle/High School project in favor of funding more improvements at Santa Monica High School. During its Oct. 18 meeting, the board was expected to approve a staff recommendation that would’ve allocated $38.4 million of Measure BB money to Santa Monica High School while Malibu Middle/High School would’ve seen $27.5 million. The Measure BB Advisory Committee met before the meeting and proposed a revised plan that would instead increase Samohi’s portion to $57 million while decreasing Malibu’s share to $13.5 million. After hearing from a number of

Santa Monica parents about the needs of the high school, the board approved the latter recommendation, which would hold off all elementary and middle school projects — except Edison Language Academy — and leave $38 million, un-earmarked. Kathy Wisnicki, the only board member representing Malibu, did not return a call seeking comment. During the Nov. 15 meeting, she expressed her disappointment with her colleagues, feeling there is a lack of understanding regarding Malibu’s needs. School board member Barry Snell welcomed the exploratory committee, believing that at a minimum, it would begin to heal the wounds caused by the fallout. Snell added he wouldn’t like to see a split in the district occur. “This exploratory committee will show what the difficulties are from dividing the two districts ... or what plusses there are,” Snell said. “I think we will find some of the plusses of being a unified school district.” melodyh@smdp.com

MWD goes ahead with plan Fluoridation of city’s water supply begins this morning BY KEVIN HERRERA I

Daily Press Staff Writer

CITYWIDE

By the time the sun sets today, Santa Monicans should be drinking tap water with a little extra fluoride added in to help protect those pearly whites. The Metropolitan Water District, the regional agency that supplies roughly 90 percent of Santa Monica’s drinking water, plans to fluoridate water at its Joseph Jensen Treatment Plant this morning. The plant, located in Granada Hills, supplies areas in the San Fernando Valley, Ventura County, West Los Angeles, the Palos Verdes Peninsula, and Santa Monica. “Santa Monicans should be getting (added fluoride) sometime in the late afternoon,” said Edgar G. Dymally, senior environmental specialist in water quality for MWD. “It takes about six hours from the time we turn the facility on and start the pumps. It takes another five to six hours for the water to get down to the extremities of the distribution system and Santa Monica is at the far end.” About .2 to .4 milligrams of fluoride occur naturally in drinking water. The MWD and City Hall plan to bump that up to .7 to .8 milligrams per liter, which they believe is safe and beneficial. City staff will add fluoride to the remaining 10 percent of water supplied to residents and local businesses from a well underneath San Vicente Boulevard, city officials said. Some residents are not pleased. They believe adding fluoride to drinking water creates a health hazard. They believe that too much fluoride can be dangerous, particularly for young babies that get most of their nutrition from powdered or liquid infant formula mixed with tap water. The American Dental Association, which endorses

fluoridation for the vast majority of Americans, issued a warning to parents last year warning them to watch their child’s fluoride intake so that they do not develop dental fluorisis — a defect of the teeth which can result in staining or corrosion of the enamel. Those opposed to fluoridation also believe there is a link between fluoride and increased levels of cancer, bone fractures and has adverse effects on the immune system, kidneys, digestive system and reproductive system.

ALL WE CAN SAY IS THAT IT IS A PERFECTLY SAFE, PROACTIVE AND COST EFFECTIVE MEASURE THAT REDUCES CAVITIES AND PROTECTS TEETH.” Edgar G. Dymally,

“Our efforts to expose and bring to justice this travesty called ‘water fluoridation’ are far from over,” said Gene Burke, founder and director of Santa Monicans for Safe Drinking Water. “Congressional under-oath investigations and good courtrooms, many of us contend, are desperately needed in order to cut through this smokescreen that politics and propaganda — not science — have produced.” MWD officials said the level of fluoride to be added is safe for consumption. Those who do not want to drink from the tap can purchase bottled water, a filter or reverse osmosis device. There have been calls by users for the MWD to supply filters for ratepayers. “There are some folks who have expressed concerns

We had an unprecedented request from six public health officials who service the areas we cover to do this.” Fluoridation of public water supplies for the purpose of prevention of cavities first occurred in this country in 1945 in the community of Grand Rapids, Mich. By the early ‘90s, 70 percent of large American cities and 56 percent of the entire U.S. population were served by water systems con-

MAKING A PIT STOP: A young boy prepares to take a drink from a water fountain on the Third Street Promenade on Saturday afternoon. The city’s water supply now includes fluoride.

taining fluoride, city officials said. In 1995, the state of California passed legislation — AB733 — requiring large public water systems to fluoridate their water if sufficient non-ratepayer funds are available to do so. Since then, many California cities have considered fluoridation. Several communities have begun fluoridating their supplies while others have decided against voluntary fluoridation. In response to AB733, the City of Santa Monica sent a survey to all addresses within the city in April 1996 asking respondents whether they thought the city should add fluoride to the tap water. Approximately 70 percent of respondents indicated they were in favor of fluoridation. The City Council debated the issue and ultimately decided to go ahead with fluoridation in 2001. There really wasn’t any other choice available considering City Hall is forced to buy water from MWD, which decided to

move forward with fluoridation in 2003. City Hall purchases water from MWD because Santa Monica’s major wells were contaminated with a toxic fuel additive known as MTBE. The city received $131 million in December of last year as part of a settlement with three major oil companies responsible for polluting the wells. The money is being used to build a water treatment facility to clean the wells and get them pumping again. City officials are said to still be in the design phase and hope to have the facility up and running by 2010. Despite assurances from water quality officials, opponents to fluoridation are still not convinced that increasing the level of the naturally occurring element will be beneficial to their health and want more studies to be done before they let one drop slip passed their lips. kevinh@smdp.com

â?š Mandy Bailey, who lives in a suburb of Phoenix, is the mother of conjoined 1-year-old girls and wanted to take them to a family reunion in Maryland. She called Delta Air Lines to make sure the girls could ride for free on her ticket. No, said Delta, because even though a child under 2 can ride for free, each infant would need an oxygen mask in case of emergency, and thus, a separate ticket was needed. Bailey kept complaining (giving the story international reach) until a Delta higher-up compromised for the flight: Bailey's sister-in-law, who had been assigned to another row on the flight, was put next to Bailey so she could share her oxygen with the second twin. â?š Authorities in Concord, N.H., arrested Frank Drake, 37, in October, after finding him watering one of his several marijuana-plant gardens alongside Interstate 89.
