Celebrating 100 years

by Alana Garrigues The Hermosa Beach City Council voted unanimously at its May 22 meeting to hire retired City Manager Steven Burrell and a consulting firm to assist in processing the environmental impact report and to work on other issues related to the proposed oil drilling project that resulted from settlement of the Macpherson Oil Company lawsuit. The use of Burrell and consultants from Ed Almanza & Associates will be funded by E&B Natural Resources as part of the settlement that gave E&B the right to take over Macpheron’s interest in the oil project. The request for help came from Community Development Director Ken Robertson, who listed other activities and contracts that staff is currently working on, including the pier trash receptacles, an ocean cable, work at Hope Chapel and more. He said that they do not have enough staff to process EIR paperwork related to the proposed oil drilling. The EIR will determine the impact of onsite drilling operations, off-shore activities, pipeline alignment and operation, city yard

District looks at furloughs, bond to cover gap by Paul Silva

with a parade, a picnic,

Staff furlough days and a bond measure are two options being considered by the Redondo Beach Unified School District to help close a $2 million budget gap. At their Tuesday meeting, school board members received a budget presentation by Superintendent Steven Keller that outlined the district’s financial challenge, which includes the loss of $925,000 in one-time federal funding and the possible reduction of $3.7 million in state funding if tax measures on the November ballot do not pass. “It will be a very unfortunate time for public education after November if one of these measures doesn’t pass,� Keller said. The superintendent said that while the district has been able to weather past financial storms with minimal employee layoffs and class size increases and without furlough days, the budget for the 2012-2013 school year is “headed off a cliff � without more expense savings and funding. “We have managed our budget quite well,�

Manhattan Beach’s year-long Centennial celebration hit a high point last weekend, with a parade down Manhattan Beach Boulevard, the cutting of birthday cakes at a picnic in Polliwog Park and the staging of an official community photo taken from a helicopter over the pier.

Being there

ATTENTION

Last week, I was surprised by a new thing that suddenly seemed old, and an old thing that suddenly seemed new. On Friday, Facebook by Paul went public, and ended up with a little egg on its face. After an early pop, the share price settled back to where it started. Many Wall Street analysts said that it was hard to see how Facebook can generate enough advertising revenue to be worth the $100 billion valuation set by its IPO price. Suddenly, a big thing that was supposed to be the future seemed old hat. If advertising alone can’t help Facebook live up to its hype, what can? Charging users fees for extra bells and whistles to make their posts stand out from the digital cacophony? I think it will be hard to get people to pay real money just to increase views of their cat playing the piano. Just as I was considering how tough it is to get people to pay for something that started out free, I was reminded of how much real value there can be in something that will always be free. On Saturday, I got to ride in the Manhattan Beach Centennial Parade, and I had a blast. Twenty-five years ago, I was lucky enough to be asked to provide color commentary on the local cable channel for the 75th anniversary parade. Former mayor Jan Dennis headed up the 75th parade as well as this year’s Centennial event, and this time she asked me to be a judge.

I agreed, but later decided I really wanted to ride in the parade to represent the newspaper. Jan let me do both because The Beach Reporter had two Silva cars near the front of the parade, which meant I could jump out at the end and run back to the reviewing stand. I rode in a beautifully restored 1960 Triumph TR3 convertible owned by two of my best friends, Annmarie and Dave Hext. Dave did the driving, and I did the waving, along with my father, Vic, and the Hexts’ daughter, Becca (who is also my unofficial goddaughter). Right behind us, Chris Miller, the paper’s longtime photographer and one of the parade committee members, rode in a 1964 Ford Fairlane Galaxy convertible owned by Scott Rusher of Rusher Air Conditioning. I had never been in a parade. I didn’t even have the experience on my bucket list, but boy I should have. Jan and the rest of the committee did an outstanding job putting the parade together. In fact, everyone who worked on the parade and the picnic that followed deserves high praise. It was a heaping helping of hometown family fun. Riding along Manhattan Beach Boulevard was like flipping through a photo album of my life. I was so happy to see so many familiar faces, and thankfully they seemed happy to see me. It’s impos-

sible not to smile when you are parading through the place where you grew up. I would have never thought it could be so enjoyable to travel so slowly in a car. As my wife will attest, being stuck in traffic makes me crazy, but line the streets with people waving at me, and suddenly I’m a smiling fool. The parade entries were just the right mix of fun and fancy without being fussed over, but my favorite participants weren’t even listed in the judges’ program. Our car followed right behind the famed Wells Fargo Bank stagecoach. Between us and the stagecoach, two Boy Scouts trotted along with a broom and a large scooper, always at the ready to pick up whatever the horses might drop. I was reminded of the old joke in which the guy who cleans up after the circus elephants is asked why he doesn’t retire, and he says incredulously, “What? And quit show business?� For an hour or so, those two scouts and all of us paraders were in show business, but, really, so were the spectators, and by osmosis the whole town. We were all showing off how much we like where we live, and each other. It was the ultimate community event, the place to be in one small corner of the world on one sunny day.

So what does the old-fashioned fun of the parade have to do with the faceplant done by Facebook’s IPO? Obviously, there are complicated high-level economic factors involved in a $100 billion Wall Street debut, but I see one common thread: Facebook is in many respects a digital parade, and just like a real parade, it’s hard to charge for admission. Saturday was also a reminder that, in an era when we spend so much time staring at a screen reading about things other people have done and looking at photos and videos taken by other people, there is still something to be said about being there. Not only was the real parade more fun than the digital one, it seemed, for all its hokey sentimentality, to be a new thing. Of course, Manhattan Beach’s Centennial Parade was all over local folks’ Facebook pages even as it was still marching through town, so the two parades – the digital and the real one – merged together. I am sure they both have a future. There’s got to be a way to make big bucks – even if it’s not $100 billion – out of 900 million Facebook users. And I plan to be in Manhattan Beach’s 125th anniversary parade, even if I have to volunteer to clean up after those Wells Fargo horses. After the fun I had this year, I can’t quit show business.

May 24, 2012 â—? The Beach Reporter â—? 11

by Douglas Morino A man carrying a shotgun strolled through the Redondo Beach pier and Veterans Park on Monday, followed closely by news reporters and the police. But he didn’t have violence on his mind. He was just making a point. Charles Nichols is an “open carry� activist who was looking to further a lawsuit against the city of Redondo Beach while demonstrating against restrictive gun-control laws. Toting an unloaded 12-gauge Harrington & Richardson shotgun he purchased about 30 years ago, Nichols temporarily broke the afternoon calm as families and curious tourists looked on. Bullets were fastened to the end of the gun with clear tape. Police officers checked Nichols’ weapon and followed closely as he walked across the pier and into the park. A small swarm of media members and gun rights supporters trailed during the peaceful event. Nichols was not arrested or cited, but his weapon was seized by police once he entered the park. The city’s Municipal Code bans carrying firearms in public parks. The misdemeanor violation carries a maximum penalty of six months in jail and a $1,000 fine. Police said a criminal complaint was submitted to the City Prosecutor’s Office. Nichols, a South Bay resident who has filed a federal lawsuit seeking to overturn state gun laws, called the seizure illegal because a warrant wasn’t issued. City Attorney Mike Webb declined to comment on the incident or Nichols’ litigation. His lawsuit, filed Nov. 30 in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles, seeks to overturn a state law enacted in 1967 that prohibits carrying a loaded handgun in public. The suit was filed about a month after a new state law that bans openly carrying unloaded handguns went into effect. Nichols’ lawsuit was dismissed earlier this month by a federal judge. Nichols has 30 days to file an amendment to the suit, and he said his shotgun parade on Monday was intended to further his case against the city of Redondo Beach, which was named as a plaintiff. “I have no choice but to cross the line,� said Nichols, a partially disabled engineer. “I need to basically prove that I am violating the law to have standing to bring my lawsuit, and what better way to prove I am violating it. “Since California has made it illegal to carry a handgun, I have to carry a shotgun. People should be allowed to defend themselves in public.� Nichols was a co-founder of South Bay Open Carry, a local organization that advocates for the right to carry a holstered, unloaded gun. The group has staged public relations events across the South Bay. Nichols has since parted ways with the group and founded another advocacy nonprofit, California Right to Carry. His lawsuit comes as a bill banning long guns — shotguns and rifles — makes its way

through the state Capitol. The bill, AB 1527, was authored by Assemblyman Anthony Portantino, D-Pasadena, and would make it a misdemeanor to carry an unloaded long gun

WHAT DO YOU THINK? The Redondo Beach Unified School District at its meeting Tuesday night reviewed the results of a recent survey of 400 residents that showed 59 percent support for a bond measure to upgrade school buildings, including facilities for career and technical training, as well as improve classroom technology and make campuses more energy efficient to free up general funds for instructional purposes. The funding would come from an annual assessment on every $100,000 in assessed property value. The survey found the most support for an $18 assessment rate, although there was also majority support for a $24 rate. Local school bond measures must have at least 55 percent voter approval. The consultant hired to conduct the survey recommended that the district build support among community stakeholders. The board asked for more information on a specific proposal that they could use to measure community support. (See cover for story.)

Parade thanks Congratulations and many thanks to the thousands that participated in and viewed the fantastic Manhattan Beach Centennial Parade. It was a real community event. Thank you most especially to parade chairperson Jan Dennis, who persisted for months to get the parade approved and worked tirelessly afterward to make it a success. It was great! Gary McAulay Manhattan Beach Keeping tradition alive Thank you, thank you to the Manhattan Beach Centennial Committee for the wonderful Centennial Parade last Saturday. Jan Dennis is to be congratulated on her tenacious efforts and vision to keep this tradition alive. In January 1985 our family settled here, and we experienced the 75th parade with our young children. We love the “small town” feeling. A little bit of “hokey” can go a long way in building community spirit and support. The parade and the picnic involved the entire town. How lucky we are to have such fun-loving, dedicated people. We were fortunate to be part of this wonderful event.

Would you support a bond measure to help fund Redondo Beach schools? How would you like to see the money used? How well do you think RBUSD spent the funds from its 2008 bond measure? If you don’t support a bond, what suggestions do you have for improving school funding?

Mary and Jim Essman Manhattan Beach Editor’s note: Last week we asked readers whether the City of Redondo Beach should fund a public advisory vote on the future of the AES power plant site, a move that Mayor Mike Gin vetoed last week as too expensive and premature. We also asked if the council should pass a resolution opposing a new plant, and how much city money should be spent in opposing the plant. We received so many letters that we will be publishing a second installment of them next week. Letters on other topics appear at the end of this week’s letters section.

Submit letters via The Beach Reporter Web site, www.tbrnews.com, or e-mail them to beachreporter@gmail.com. Letters can also be mailed to The Beach Reporter, P.O. Box 1329, Manhattan Beach, CA 90266. The newspaper prints letters that are fairly brief and legible, and not libelous or obscene. Priority is given to letters reflecting beach cities issues. The correspondence must be accompanied by the letter writer’s full name. We do not print anonymous letters. A home address and residential telephone number must be included, although neither will be printed. The word limit is 250. The deadline for a Thursday edition is noon the previous Monday.

Spend nothing Wait for more information! Make AES show their cards before negotiations begin. For all we know their plans may be totally unacceptable to the mayor and council and it will be a slam dunk to reject the plans. I’ve been attending/watching council meetings for years. At this point they all sound like reruns when it comes to AES. Now it looks like it is a race to see who is going to get credit for getting rid of the power plant, the mayor and council or Building a Better Redondo. Yes, the council should absolutely pass a resolution to show opposition to a new power plant. Such action will speak volumes to the CEC far more than a small group of ill-mannered, angry citizens. No money should be spent at this time. The city has had layoffs and employees have taken pay cuts. Spend only if there is a guaranteed return. No advisory vote. We still have not seen a park from the last advisory vote from eight years ago! Eric Sidney Redondo Beach

Hard to ignore First our City Council says over 100 residents showing up at multiple council meetings is a vocal minority and that they do not believe the majority of residents oppose a new power plant. Then they say they are against measuring the will of the resident by a resident-sponsored zoning initiative. Now the mayor won’t even fund a city vote to determine if residents want a power plant. All because of $100,000? Heck, they blow $25,000 a pop for consultants at every turn. A new power plant will continue blight and pollution for the next 50 years at least. They are afraid of the answer. If the majority of residents voted to oppose the power plant, the council cannot continue to say they don’t know what we want. And it will be harder for them to keep justifying repeatedly kicking the can down the road. At this rate the new plant will be built before our council takes any meaningful action. Go to the CPUC website and you will find AES pressuring the CPUC to open up new contract bids. AES is not waiting. The residents’ zoning initiative is our only alternative to show true opposition to a new power plant in a timely manner. Zoning put in place by a vote of the people will be hard for the state to ignore. Jim Light Redondo Beach

Serve everyone I’m a resident of North Redondo Beach. Thanks for publishing the eye-opening letter from Mr. Hornsby of Southern California Edison on May 17. His letter raises serious question about the initiative being drafted by the NoPowerPlant people. As drafted, the initiative calls for the removal of the power plant, but doesn’t also require that the high-voltage power lines along 190th Street also be removed. Mr. Hornsby explained how SCE will save money by leaving the unused power lines in place if the plant is removed. If NPP is hoping people from all of Redondo Beach are going to vote in favor of their rezoning initiative, they should be writing it in a way that serves everyone, not just the people in the area surrounding the power plant. The current initiative would remove the power plant from their view, but it doesn’t help remove the biggest eyesore for those of us living along the Anita/190th corridor — the power lines. I wish our councilmember here in Redondo Beach District 3, Pat Aust, would get involved in the drafting of this initiative and get it written to help us as well! Trudie Gavison Redondo Beach

Get on it We would like to see the council take a

stand against the power plant by passing a resolution. We don’t need to spend public money or any money or hear anything further from AES. Let’s get this addressed, over and done with so we can move forward without any further bureaucracy, emotions or stress. Get on it, Mayor Gin, and stop wasting our time! Gaye Simmons Hermosa Beach

Pollution isn’t free The city should definitely fund a public vote on the future of the AES Redondo Beach power plant. Currently the mayor and some council members claim they do not know how local residents feel about the matter. A vote would deprive them of this hypocritical claim. The council should pass a resolution opposing the new power plant. In addition to the obvious negative impact of the plant on the coastline and property values, it appears abundantly clear that a new power plant would increase air pollution (by running at a much higher capacity) and hence create negative health impacts. Nobody wants the city to go bankrupt over this matter; however, what’s the price tag one wants to put on the health of citizens? The pollution caused by a new power plant is not free. There are very real health costs associated with air pollution. This is what the council and the mayor should be concerned about first. Stephan Mayer Redondo Beach Waive budget restraints The city should fund a public vote as they have had ample time to understand what the voters in Redondo Beach want, which is to eliminate the power plant. I would like to see the City Council pass a resolution opposing the power plant. I think this is such an important issue that the normal budgetary restraints should be waived. I don’t know how much money it will take, but I certainly think that a minimum amount of $2 million is not out of line. John Francis Walsh Redondo Beach

Send a message Let us be very clear on the continued opposition to any new power plant in Redondo Beach. We must pass a resolution opposing a new plant! Apparently the interests of the citizens do not matter to the mayor or Councilman Aust. They just are not listening. Take your fingers out of your ears. We have made our statement loud and clear: “No new power plant!” The cost (of a public vote) is not significant when you consider the damage a new power plant would inflict on our community. As much as $250,000 to $300,000 would not be too much to send our message. Rex Lundy Redondo Beach

Whatever is necessary Yes, the city should fund a vote. Yes, I would like to see the council pass a resolution opposing the power plant. I would be willing to spend whatever public money is necessary to oppose a new power plant and to remove the old one. Tony Mortillaro Redondo Beach

Take a poll If the City Council wants to gather the current opinion of the city regarding a power plant in a cost-effective way, they should consider a professional polling company. It (Please turn to page 24)

Dolan saga continues: city wants money, Dolan wants appeal by Carley Dryden Although a judge dismissed Geoff Dolan’s breach of contract lawsuit against the city of Manhattan Beach in March, the legal battle continues, with the former city manager filing an appeal and the city planning to make him pay its litigation costs. Dolan abruptly left the city in December 2009 after 15 years, with the city and Dolan claiming his exit was a mutually agreedupon decision. The city provided few details, triggering outrage from residents, with open government watchdog Richard McKee going the furthest to seek answers by suing

the city in 2010 for keeping residents in the dark over the departure. While defending the city in the McKee case, then city attorney Bob Wadden, who was later terminated, made public the existence of an anonymous letter with disparaging claims against Dolan. Wadden asked the judge to keep it sealed if it was entered into evidence. The letter made allegations about Dolan’s drunken behavior at a team-building retreat for city department heads in October 2009. In its settlement with McKee last year, the city agreed to release the letter, along with Dolan’s separation agreement with the

city. Last October, Dolan filed a lawsuit against the city claiming the city breached his resignation agreement, invaded his privacy rights and violated the California Public Records Act by making the anonymous letter public. Dolan argued that the release of the letter, “riddled with false accusations” that were never investigated by the city, led him to be “tarred and feathered” in the media, and inflicted humiliation, embarrassment and emotional distress. The city’s legal team asked the trial court to dismiss Dolan’s lawsuit, arguing that the

city’s release of the public records, including the letter, was protected under the state’s anti-SLAPP law, enacted to expedite the dismissal of “strategic lawsuits against public participation.” In March, Superior Court Judge Susan Bryant-Deason granted the city’s request. While City Attorney Roxanne Diaz said the decision vindicated the public’s right to transparency, Dolan told The Beach Reporter he was disappointed. “The city and I had a contract,” he said. “I held my end, and they did not.” (Please turn to page 38)

Discussion on teens at M.B. library

The inaugural class of the Mayor’s Youth Council was honored by the Manhattan Beach City Council May 15. Mayor Pro Tem David Lesser called the program of freshman through senior students, started by former mayor Portia Cohen, “very uplifting.” (photo by Paul Silva)

Teens broaden horizons with Mayor’s Youth Council by Carley Dryden They say all great things start with an idea. Former mayor Portia Cohen’s idea was to expose Manhattan Beach teens to local government. In 2010, when she was mayor, Cohen and Mira Costa High School teacher Andy Caine created the Costa-Council Project, meeting with students once a month in Caine’s classroom, and encouraging them to attend City Council meetings and provide their feedback. This year, Cohen’s project evolved to the Mayor’s Youth Council, a program introducing teens to a variety of careers and to

leaders in the community through monthly speaker sessions/workshops with guests like the police chief, the publisher of a local newspaper, a production assistant at Raleigh Studios and others. “We got together and thought that what these kids were missing in addition to handson experience with local government was contact with local professionals,” Cohen said. “To teach them that leaders come in all shapes and sizes. We wanted the kids to feel that they had promise no matter how they compared or contrasted to their classmates. Everybody has promise to succeed.” Beginning last September, about 30 fresh-

men to senior students met once a month at the city’s police/fire conference room and a few times off-site — on a Body Glove boat, at Raleigh Studios and a local hospital. Cohen, John Marston, curator of TEDx Manhattan Beach, and other volunteers prepared substantive sessions covering topics like entertainment, media, crisis management, health, design and government. Last month the students participated in a City Council meeting simulation and debated one of the most hotly contested topics in recent months — allowing alcohol on the beach for the city’s Centennial gala. Five students were assigned as Council members, one as (Please turn to page 38)

Manhattan Boy Scout troop celebrates 100 Eagle Scouts by Carley Dryden

Manhattan Beach Boy Scout Troop 849, which recently awarded its 100th Eagle Scout, walked in the city of Manhattan Beach’s Centennial parade on Saturday. The troop was formed in 1956 and was the first in the city. (photo courtesy of David Rolandelli)

In the same year the city of Manhattan Beach celebrates its Centennial, the first Boy Scout troop in town hits its own milestone — 100 Eagle Scouts. The troop is hoping to gather all of its 100 Eagles to honor them at a July 7 dinner, where they will share memories of Troop 849’s history. “Hitting our 100th Eagle in the same year as the city’s Centennial is very exciting for us,” said Troop 849 Scoutmaster David

Rolandelli. “And a number of boys still stay engaged. We’re very active.” The troop, which was formed in 1956 with a total of eight boys and still meets weekly at the city’s Scout House, awarded its first Eagle Scout, Richard Mower, also in 1956. Today, the troop has about 65 boys. Only 2 percent of Boy Scouts reach the honor of Eagle Scout, which requires earning 21 merit badges, taking on a 400-hour (Continued on page 38)

Talent show fundraiser benefits View and Valley schools by Alana Garrigues Students and teachers from Hermosa Beach View and Valley schools are dusting off their dancing shoes and stretching their vocal chords in preparation for the third annual Talent Show Fundraiser June 1 and 2 at the Hermosa Beach Playhouse. The fundraiser, organized by Hermosa Beach parents Craig and Suzanne Greely, has become an annual tradition that brings the whole community together. “It becomes kind of a community event, where the audience is having a lot of fun,” said Craig. The Greelys have three children in the school district and a fourth set to enter kindergarten in September 2013. Owners of the Family Theatre, Inc., a community musical theater company for children and families based in Hermosa Beach, they are advocates for the performing arts and were approached by the administration to plan the show a few years ago. The Greelys happily accepted. They see the talent show as serving a two-fold mission: give the kids a chance to perform on-stage to a live audience and raise some money for the schools. “For Suzanne and me, it’s really just trying to get opportunities for the kids to perform,” Craig said. Past years have brought dancers, singers, jugglers, pianists, saxophonists, a yo-yo performance set to music, gymnastics and poetry readings to the stage. This year, attendees can expect a similar line-up, in addition to a performance from the musical “Oklahoma,” produced by Family Theatre. Last year, the Greelys tapped longtime friend Beth Rohde, owner of the Coast Music Conservatory, to arrange for a student house band to play during set changes. Rohde likens the all-boy rock and pop band, called the Frozen Sea Rabbits, to the Jay Leno band.

They are there to support the host and performers and keep the show moving along. “Not only are the performances by the kids, but we actually want it to be, as much as possible, run by the kids. Kids are the hosts of the show – they will go out and introduce the acts. It gives them a chance to perform live in front of people and gain self confidence in public speaking, maybe even a little sense of humor,” Craig said. According to Rohde, some of the kids are highly talented performers looking forward to careers in the arts, and others are there for the experience of getting up on-stage. Either way, it instills valuable confidence. The Greelys have to hire a house manager and lighting and sound technicians due to Hermosa Beach regulations, but they would love to develop a mentoring program in the future for kids to learn about backstage vocations as well. Beyond the values of performance that enrich the children, the Greelys try to enrich the school district’s budget through ticket sales. Suzanne and Craig book the theater and put a deposit down a full year in advance. The Hermosa Beach Arts Foundation grants some of the hours for the rehearsals and performance, which helps keep costs reasonable. Each year the Greelys hope to raise enough money to pay for the crew and the facility rental, then all additional money goes directly to the school district. “In the past, what I’ve always done is show up to the school board and write a check to the school board,” Craig said. “I’m looking forward to showing up at the next board meeting and saying, ‘Hey, we raised a thousand dollars, or a couple thousand,’ whatever it will be.” Craig noted the limited resources and opportunities for arts education and performances in the schools now, due to budget cuts and high enrollments, but said that since “the schools need everything they can get,” the money is not

DiVirgilio presses for banking info by Alana Garrigues City Councilman Michael DiVirgilio issued a second request at the May 22 City Council meeting to view all communication between City Treasurer David Cohn and the 11 banks he is talking to as the City of Hermosa Beach searches for a new banking contract. DiVirgilio said at the May 8 meeting that he was concerned about the lack of an open request for proposals in Cohn’s search for a new banking contract, and felt that it did not follow the standard procedure in place for city government to initiate all other types of contract work. At that meeting, Mayor Pro Tem Kit Bobko agreed with DiVirgilio that the selection process should be made more transparent, but none of the other council members voted to put the item on the agenda. In his second request on May 22, DiVirgilio asked for a report and copies of all original e-mail communication between Cohn and the banks. He referred to community responses to his letter to the editor printed in the May 17 edition of The Beach Reporter. His letter asked for more transparency, particularly in the aftermath of the city of Bell financial scandal.

DiVirgilio said that he heard from a leader within the city of Manhattan Beach who said that Manhattan Beach opened up their banking discussions after the Orange County bankruptcy case. He also said he heard from four residents who were suspicious of favoritism and pay-backs behind closed doors. DiVirgilio said he did not suspect Cohn or any public employee of wrongdoing, but that full disclosure to the city council and the public would prevent an atmosphere of confusion or distrust. Although Councilman Peter Tucker did not feel the request was a high priority, he supported DiVirgilio and Bobko making a motion 3-2 to include information about the selection process on a future agenda item. Cohn was not pleased with the push to add it to the agenda, stating that all of the communication is logged in the second floor of City Hall and available for public viewing following the public records request process. Finance Director Viki Copeland said that she would make sure all documents were ready for a future City Council meeting. While Mayor Jeff Duclos did not vote to put the item on the agenda and remarked that the decision took more time and discussion than many agenda items, he did say, “I think it’s helpful. I hope so.”

earmarked for any particular program. It can be used wherever the district needs it most. They say it’s now up to the community to create an environment that encourages music, theater and performance, and hopefully one day there will be a budget and space for it in the schools again. For now, they have a great venue in the Playhouse and a good opportunity to showcase the kids’ talents to the community. Residents and guests of all ages from around the South Bay are encouraged to attend. The talent show is split into two nights: Friday, June 1, and Saturday, June 2, at 6:30

p.m. Each night will bring 20 to 30 different acts and performers to the stage for 90 minutes of entertainment. The show is at the Hermosa Beach Playhouse, located at 710 Pier Avenue. Tickets are $10. “It’ll be fun. There will be a lot of variety,” Rohde said. Student performers are requested to register for the performance by Friday, May 25, by contacting the Greelys at 310-372-9203 or via e-mail: A6Academy@yahoo.com. Acts are limited to three minutes and will be screened for content prior to the performance. On- stage rehearsals will take place May 29 to May 31.

Sand run for a good cause

Elite endurance athlete Christian Burke announced this week that the third annual running of ‘The Hermosa 24’ will take place the weekend of June 30. The 24-hour run in the sand welcomes amateur and elite runners and students of all ages to run in either the solo or relay category to vie for a Guinness World Record originally set in the inaugural 2010 race by Burke (shown finishing above) and broken last year by endurance runner Patrick Sweeney, while raising money for local schools.

City Council Roundup by Alana Garrigues Electric vehicle station restrictions The Hermosa Beach City Council voted unanimously at its May 22 meeting to approve a recommendation by Public Works Director Frank Senteno to offer six months of complimentary charging for electric vehicles at the new charging stations. They also approved signage to limit parking at EV stalls to electric vehicles only and signage on Pacific Coast Highway to direct drivers to the charging stations. Parking will be limited to two hours along Pier Avenue and three hours at City Hall. Staff will return with a proposed fee schedule to go into effect after the sixmonth complimentary period expires. City receives award of distinction for its website City Councilmember Jeff Duclos presented city staff and the council members with a glass trophy award of distinction for the city’s new website, given by the California Association of Public Information Officials.

The award recognizes the city of Hermosa Beach for the overall quality of the website, the effectiveness of its messages, creativity and appropriate use of funds. The website was launched in November, and Copeland was the project manager. “We thank the staff for all their hard work in developing an award-winning website. This was a high priority for the City Council, and it is great that the city is now being recognized for it,” Duclos said. Basketball robot visits chambers A basketball-playing robot built and designed by the Beach Cities Robotics Team of high school students from Mira Costa and Redondo Union high schools paid the City Council a visit, spinning and zipping across the floor. Students said the robot has a shooting range of up to 35 feet and good accuracy. The students, many of them budding engineers, gave a brief explanation of how the robot works, followed by a live demonstration. They joked that the Lakers and Clippers should have recruited the robot in time for the play-offs for a better outcome.

BCHD partners with child care center by Annie Lubinsky In alignment with the Beach Cities Health District’s mission to provide health-enhancing services to local residents and employees, the BCHD’s board of directors asked staff to look into including a child care center at its Prospect Avenue campus. Meanwhile, less than two miles away, Hanif and Zohra Haji, owners of the Beach Cities Child Development Center, were looking for a location large enough to open their second facility. Bringing the two together was simply a matter of making the connection. The new BCCDC celebrated its grand opening on the BCHD campus last Wednesday, May 16. Kelly Olin, who works on real estate services for BCHD, had placed her son at the

BCCDC, located at 850 Inglewood Ave. One day, she heard Zohra Haji talking about how difficult it was to find the amount of room needed to open a second location. At one time, the BCHD’s Prospect Avenue building, formerly South Bay Hospital, housed the Kids Care Station, a place for children recovering from illnesses to stay when they were too sick to attend school but their parents needed to work. That space was now empty, but as it accommodated only 15 to 20 kids, “that didn’t work,” Haji said. “It was coincidental that we were on two parallel tracks, we were talking about child care center when Zohra was looking for space for a new one,” Olin said. The new child development center would require between 5,000 and 7,000 square feet

There are weekends when all you do is laundry and walk the dog and then there are other weekends when all of your dreams come true and your life is changed forever. Last weekend I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do laundry. I already knew when I woke up the day would be one I would remember forever. I put on my fancy new dress, matched with super cute shoes, and waited for my very awesome friend Carly to arrive to do my hair and make-up. While the hustle and bustle of getting ready took place, my cap and gown hung in the living room as a reminder this wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a dream anymore. I had actually done it; in a matter of a couple of hours I would be a graduate. No longer would I have to carry around the insecurity I had about not finishing college. No longer would I have to settle for a job I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t 100 percent in love with. No longer would I have to explain to people where I had gone to school and why I had left but that I planned to finish one day. That â&#x20AC;&#x153;one dayâ&#x20AC;? was here. Graduating would have been enough for one day, but the BIL (Boy I Like) thought I deserved more. He always does. He loves to think big. Like he said to me when we designed our Halloween costumes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Babe, puff paint is for amateurs.â&#x20AC;? And he was right. Though it took more time and effort, sewing a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bâ&#x20AC;? and a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gâ&#x20AC;? onto our super hero costumes, it took it to another level. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that level of hard work, creativity, risk-taking and love for life that I want to spend the rest of my life with. Graduation would have been enough, but instead we decided to stop by The Mermaid near the Hermosa Beach Pier after the commencement and have a Bloody Mary. I thought it was just going to be the family and the BIL but instead the bar was filled with all my favorite people, all of whom yelled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Surprise!â&#x20AC;? as I walked in the door. I had managed to keep my eyes dry for graduation, but they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stay dry for that moment. In that moment, looking at all the people I love, I was reminded of all of the love and support I have in my life and why I was able to persevere through school. Little did I know, my day of surprises had just begun. About 15 minutes into the hugs and congratulations, the BIL pulled me aside and

Insight Out A weekend makes a life

loudly started to tell everyone how proud he is of me and how much he loves me. He then handed me a velvet box. (I know what you are thinking because I thought the same thingâ&#x20AC;Śwhy isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t he on one knee?) Well, a guy doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to get on one knee when he is giving a new car to his girlfriend. I opened the box and there it was: a new car key, which fit my dream car, a 2012 Ford Focus (they should pay me for this column). But it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just any Ford Focus; it was a Ford Focus with balloons and streamers and bows on it. There it was right in front of me: a car with air conditioning, a car with turn signals, a car with no dents and no miles, a car that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need oil put into it every three weeks, a car that gets more than 16 miles to the gallon. Well, that would have definitely been enough for one day. But not for BIL, he is limitless and loveable and reminds me everyday that I need to dream bigger. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is one more thing,â&#x20AC;? he said pulling me into the back room of The Mermaid. The back room of The Mermaid with its yellow-stained walls and drooping ceiling never looked so beautiful. It was decorated like the set from The Bachelor, complete with a table for two and long-stem red rose. On the table was a hardcover book wrapped with white satin ribbon. At this point I was freaking out on the inside and trying hard not show it on the outside. As we took our seats for two in the private room, my BIL untied the ribbon and read the book he made. He told the love story of his great grandparents and how his great grandfather Conrad gave his bride to be, Anna, a very special ring with their initials engraved on the inside. BILâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother, Charlotte, later wore the same ring, and a few months ago Charlotte gave it to BIL to give to me. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Will you marry me?â&#x20AC;? he asked at the end of his story. This time he was on one knee. (Please turn to page 22)

Burnie the cat passed away peacefully

(Continued from page 11)

on Friday, May 11, 2012 in Hawthorne, CA. He came to live with the Comitz family almost 16 years ago as a newborn kitty found at Burnett School in the Wiseburn School District. All through the years, Burnie provided the family with love, affection and entertainment. Along with being our beloved family cat, Burnie was also the King of Wiseburn Ave. Those who walk around the neighborhood were often stopped by Burnie as he would lay down in front of them for a rub-a-tummy. Lucy the cat, his friend and companion, is lost without him. We will all love and miss him forever.

There it was on my finger. The ring that was purchased more than 100 years ago is now something that will remind me every day of the importance of marriage, family, true love and dreams coming true. The graduation would have been enough, but thankfully, enough isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t good enough for the person I get to spend the rest of my life with. It was the biggest, most life-changing and above all, happiest weekend of my life. What I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do was my laundry, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OK. There is always next weekend. I am happy to share video footage of the day, captured by Yahoo Ultimate Surprises. If you e-mail me at jenniferevans02@yahoo.com, I will send you the link.

in public areas or in vehicles. Licensed hunters and law enforcement officers would be exempt. Portantino authored another gun-control bill, AB 144, that outlaws people from openly carrying unloaded handguns. That bill was signed into law in October 2011. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Open-carry activists have decided to push the envelope,â&#x20AC;? Portantino said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an alarming sight â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to see folks with rifles and shotguns over their shoulders around families. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s act like reasonable people and make the world safer,â&#x20AC;? he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re carrying a shotgun, you have no business being in a Starbucks.â&#x20AC;? Concealed-weapons laws vary in California, and permits typically require a background check and approval from a county sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s department or local police agency. Nicholsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; gun show on Monday was opposed by members of the Brady Campaign for Gun Violence, who said Nichols was putting the public in danger by carrying the firearm. The group has clashed over gun control regulations in the past with local members of the open-carry movement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He is endangering the safety the community by pushing a political agenda and putting dangerous firearms into our daily lives,â&#x20AC;? said Sheri Barnett, a spokeswoman for the group. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He is scaring the community and inciting gun violence.â&#x20AC;?

(Continued from cover) he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but we are at a time when we need to look at all options.â&#x20AC;? Unpaid furlough days for all personnel are one of those options, Keller said. He stressed that such a move would be subject to collective bargaining with the teachers and classified employees unions, a process that is already underway. His presentation to the board included a chart comparing furlough actions taken by other South Bay districts. Of 10 districts, only two â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Redondo Beach and Manhattan Beach â&#x20AC;&#x201C; have had no furlough days. Hermosa Beach teachers and classified employees have had seven furlough days since 2009, and Palos Verdes teachers have been subjected to 14 unpaid days. One furlough day for the Redondo Beach Teachers Association would result in district savings of $180,000. Adding classified employees and administrators would result in an expense reduction of $210,000 for each furlough day. The districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s financial pressure is increased by the state requirement that it keep its reserve fund at 3 percent of the overall budget. It currently stands at 3.1 percent, down from 5.9 percent in 2006. Keller said that the reduction of some or all 47 temporary teaching positions was another cost-savings option. The district did not issue any layoff notices for permanent employees by the March 15 deadline, but temporary teaching positions do not fall under that requirement. Keller described the â&#x20AC;&#x153;worst case scenarioâ&#x20AC;? as

R.B. furloughs

resulting in fewer teachers, classified employees and administrators, furlough days and increases in class sizes if temporary teachers do not return to the classroom. Even in the best case scenario, â&#x20AC;&#x153;there will be some reductions, just not as painful as the trigger reductionsâ&#x20AC;? that would occur if the tax measures on the November ballot fail. Representatives from the teachers and classified staff unions were not available for comment on Kellerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s presentation before press time. Because they had already reviewed and discussed the information previously, the board was not required to take any action on the budget and had no questions for the superintendent. Keller said he would be making the same presentation to groups of teachers and other personnel, and that it would be available on video. Kellerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sobering budget presentation was preceded at the meeting by some good news for the district â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a recent survey showed majority public support for a possible bond measure. Jon Isom, president of Isom Advisors, a consulting firm that advised the district during its successful 2008 bond campaign, has been contracted by the district to assess the feasibility of placing a local bond measure on the November ballot. Isom said that a survey of 400 likely Redondo Beach voters contacted between May 16 and May 21 indicated that 53.8 percent would favor a measure that would allow the district to issue $68 million in bonds, as long as the money was spent on upgrading school facilities and technology, improving energy

relocation and post-drilling site restoration in preparation for a potential ballot initiative in which voters will decide whether to lift the current ban on oil drilling in the city. Ed Almanza & Associates will be responsible for hiring an EIR consultant and will communicate findings to the public through workshops and public notices. Ed Almanza & Associates will be paid an estimated $138,900 to complete the task. Burrell will provide general consulting on the oil drilling issue at an hourly rate of $175, not to exceed 960 hours per fiscal year. The city will never pay out of pocket for the consultant fees, according to City Attorney Michael Jenkins. He said that there is an account that E&B will deposit funds into directly. Councilmember Michael DiVirgilio said that based on the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current workload, hiring a contractor made sense. Two residents were not pleased with the proposed arrangement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This Almanza contract, which might cost up to $135,000 plus expenses, is only to decide what people are going to put into their proposals to bid on the environmental impact report. I really think you need to read it more carefully,â&#x20AC;? said longtime resident Barbara Guild. Resident Hany Fangary, who made a recent

run for City Council, said that while he trusted Burrell, the consulting fee seemed excessive. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have a lot of respect for our former city manager Burrell, but there is no information in the contract about how the city came up with the $175-per-hour fee. Based on his prior salary that the city has made public, if you equate that to an hourly rate, his pay was $100 per hour. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see the jump from $100 to $175. I think that salary is extreme and excessive,â&#x20AC;? said Fangary. Fangary also called into question an indemnity provision in the contracts, which states that if the city were to get sued, Almanza would be responsible for legal expenses associated with his company, but the city would be responsible for legal expenses associated with Burrell. Mayor Jeff Duclos asked if retired city managers could be solicited to return as volunteers to offer their expertise. Jenkins said that while it might be possible, he had not even considered asking Burrell to return as an unpaid volunteer. He also pointed out that the $175-per-hour rate was comparable to other consultantsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fees with similar experience to Burrell. City council members needed very little persuasion to make their decision. After listening to concerns from the audience, Duclos called for the vote, which passed 5-0 with no amendments.

24 ● The Beach Reporter ● May 24, 2012 about AES’s plans. It’s time for the people to have their voices heard on this issue. There must be a public vote since our mayor and (Continued from page 12) the majority of the council are turning a deaf would cost between $2,000 to $5,000 instead ear to the cogent arguments that have been of $100,000 to poll three to five questions made for removing the plant. It should be a “no brainer” for the counaccurately. Given that the vote would be advisory, this seems like a more efficient cil to pass a resolution opposing the plant if indeed they are to reflect the will of the and accurate choice. My wife (a pediatrician) and I (a business people. If necessary, several million dollars owner) feel strongly that the AES power plant should not be allowed to rebuild on its should be spent in opposing a new power plant on this land.

Now, when the power plant is toxic load only increases the likelihood of required by regulation to rebuild or cease cancer, heart problems and other expensive operations, is the fair time to make that tran- maladies. I am sure a vote is much more cost-effisition. If allowed to rebuild (e.g. re-invest), it will be unfair and unreasonably costly to cient than all of the cancer, heart treatments, surgeries and medications will be to the citimake that change for decades to come.

Letters

Another Bozo The thought of our mayor and others siding with a power company makes me want to throw up. One of my friends lives near Beryl and Broadway and needs a lung transplant, I’m sure partially due to the plant, which spews the equivalent of 170,000 cars’ worth of pollution into our air every day. Like the last Bozos who allowed condos to ruin our views, this Mayor Gin needs to go away. Sean Casey Redondo Beach Listen to the public I believe the city should fund a public vote on this issue. Mayor Gin needs to listen to his council and they in turn, need to listen to their constituents. I would like the Council to formally oppose continuance of a power plant of any size or kind. We are at a crossroads for our community as well as the greater South Bay area. We have an opportunity to take a better direction for Redondo Beach, one that will improve the environment we inhabit, everyone’s quality of life and health. This is exactly the type of issue that deserves budget funds. I am in favor of spending the appropriate amount of money necessary for the citizens’ voices to be heard. Nick Barnes Redondo Beach No useful purpose We must do away with the power plant. It serves no useful purpose in the land is much needed for a park. We have all the information we need

Get a cart About the ongoing concern regarding the access ramp or sidewalk for the wheelchair access to the beach, the most cost-effective and quickest way to provide this would be for the City of Manhattan Beach to purchase a golf cart that has a handicap ramp installed on the rear for a wheelchair. This could be purchased used for less than $25,000. Have it placed at The Strand in line with a lifeguard tower. Install a flag pole and when a handicap person wants to get to the water the flag goes up and the lifeguard comes and drives the person to the water. When the person is ready to get back to The Strand he just flags down the lifeguard again. This is very inexpensive. Another permanent solution would be to install an elevator at the pier above high-tide lines. The elevator could be built out of concrete masonry walls and be raised four or five feet above high-tide height. Then a simple access ramp could be installed parallel to the pier with a switchback ramp down to the sand level. This would not infringe on the maintenance crews being able to maintain the sand on the beach nor would it cause a problem for the lifeguard patrols. It could have a master control where it could not be lowered during stormy weather and if the control systems are installed at the pier level there would not be a problem if a large storm came in and the tide rose. Don Archibald Manhattan Beach Usurping the treasurer I am responding to Councilmember Michael DiVirgilio’s letter in last week’s issue about “transparency” and Hermosa

Beach’s city bank account. Mr. DiVirgilio is most hypocritical given that he and colleagues did not “evaluate publicly” the $17.5 million Macpherson oil settlement nor was there any “public review or debate on this issue.” DiVirgilio seems more concerned about “public review or debate” about a bank account that currently costs the city around $30,000 per year than he does about “public review or debate” about a $17.5 million settlement. I hope that the residents of our city understand Mr. DiVirgilio’s real agenda: to usurp the responsibilities of our city treasurer. It’s obvious he couldn’t care less about transparency since he never insisted in “public debate or review” for the Macpherson oil settlement. Fred Huebscher Hermosa Beach

Skechers cares Huge thanks to Skechers! This past weekend our family suffered the sudden and sad death of our father and grandpa, Bob Henderson. As we celebrated his life at a friend’s gorgeous home in Hermosa Beach, we were concerned about the limited parking. Without any questions, Sketchers graciously allowed over 100 people to park in their parking lots. Thank you, Lindsey Clarke and Lenny Smith! Your pure act of kindness relieved a burden on us, and we are truly grateful. Keep up the great work, Skechers! Andrea Henderson Redondo Beach

Not happy about “gay” I was not in a “gay” mood when I read the editor’s take on homosexual marriage. Contrary to public opinion, President Obama has not evolved but rather devolved on the issue of “gay marriage,” forced into the position because of his overly glib and gaffe-prone vice president. How many accounts must we revisit in history to realize that homosexual conduct is not conducive to the well-being of the individual, the family or the nation? Polybius, the ancient historian, documented how the Greek city states endured steady declines in population, family, and law and order following the breakdown of moral relations between one man and one woman. Psychological reports have determined that individuals who engage in the same-sex lifestyle diminish their lifespan by at least 20 percent, even when factoring out disease or other unnatural phenomena. Furthermore, any doctor not intimidated by the PC lobby can attest that homosexual contact harms an individual. Selfish identity politics pervasive in our country have turned a privileged institution into a right, which it was never meant to be. Marriages fail not because of the institution, but due to failures of one male and one female to die to themselves and become one flesh. Marriage by definition, by tradition and by revelation is a union of one man and one woman. Even if every state in the Union defines two men as “married,” the definition of marriage does not change, no more than calling a dog’s tail a “leg” means that the dog now has five legs. Arthur Christopher Schaper Torrance

All private property Marriage, birth control, gays, religion… It’s all private property. Do not trespass on another’s beliefs, and no one should trespass on yours. Enough men, women and children have been murdered by “us against them” politics and propaganda, which eventually

leads to unconscionable atrocities. Mike Schweid Hermosa Beach

Failed leadership Manhattan Beach City Manager Carmany is failing to demonstrate the character and competence to provide our city’s needed managerial and ethical leadership. Former City Manager Geoff Dolan’s management style was that of a strong-armed fraternity president ruling through force of personality. City Manager Carmany’s style is that of a fraternity pledge being obsequious to the point of servile compliance and using flattery along with the laissez-faire management of department heads. The Manhattan Beach City Council has conducted four closed-door sessions to evaluate Carmany’s performance over 16 months without issuing a final report to the public. Rather, the council has had to hire numerous management consultants and lawyers to compensate for his deficiencies. These include failure to renegotiate labor contracts resulting in increased health insurance and pension costs. Further delays will result from a consultant’s overdue job classification and compensation study that will generate intense union efforts to protect employee job security and careers. A management team-building consultant has not produced added value. Since the hiring of a consultant to improve government-community relations, divisiveness has actually increased. Carmany’s failed ethical leadership has resulted in the loss of a moral compass among his key reports including Police Chief Irvine’s and Community Development Director Thompson’s errors of omission and misrepresentation of facts on public policy issues; and City Attorney Diaz and Parks and Recreation Director Gill succumbed to the unethical political influence of Councilmembers Tell and Montgomery in slanting documents supporting alcohol at a centennial beach gala. “Quo Vadis,” City Manager Carmany? Edward Caprielian Manhattan Beach

Depending on voting The health of democracy rests with area youth. Every passing day brings renewed debate about the future of our economy, the fate of our health care and energy industries, and our place in the world. Too often lost in the shuffle of partisan politics and snappy sound bites is the reminder that each one of us has a say in influencing that future. This past month an active debate was underway — not in the halls of Congress or City Hall, but in the 12th-grade government and economics classes at local high schools. I had the opportunity to talk with students about why their voices are needed on Election Day and throughout the year. Now more than ever, our community’s young people want to be a part of the solution to the challenges we face. Their future depends on it. Thank you to all the students who took a stand and registered to vote. I hope readers will do the same. Barbara Arlow Co-President, League of Women Voters of the Beach Cities

30 ● The Beach Reporter ● May 24, 2012 has become very tedious, even boring. But I digress. Here’s a baseball puzzle. A baseball player can get to first base by getting a hit. But there are five or six other ways he can get to first base. Name them. (Two of them depend on your interpretation of “getting a hit,” and one is really sneaky!)

I thought it might be fun to try a real-life problem for a change. Here goes. I like four-door cars. It’s much easier to deal with children and back-seat passengers getting in and out. Some others with no kids seem to prefer a two-door car with more room for the driver and front-seat passengers to get in and out. But the doors are heavier and, it seems to me, if you are in a limited space, the larger door can’t open as wide. So suppose you park each car in a garage. The side of the car is some fixed distance from the wall limiting the amount the door can open. For uniformity, the distance of the car from the wall equals a, the length of the door equals d, and let’s measure the door opening (l) from the edge of the door to the edge of the opening or door jamb. Let’s say a four-door car’s front door is 4 feet long and a two-door car’s door is 6 feet long. And let’s say we park the car 3 feet from the wall. Which door will provide the larger opening (l)? Which door do you guess will provide the larger opening? What does your math say?

Three-letter words from last time

Mean, median and mode This is too easy to be much of a challenge for you lot but I liked it, so here it is. For a set of five whole numbers, the mean is 4, the mode is 1, and the median is 5. What are the five numbers?

Crime and Courts A selection of crimes reported in the cities of Manhattan, Hermosa, Redondo Beach and El Segundo – Compiled by Carley Dryden MANHATTAN BEACH GARAGE BURGLARY Unknown suspect(s) entered an attached garage through a closed but unlocked garage door in the 200 block of Moonstone Street. Suspect(s) took a bag of pots and pans from the garage, and keys, glasses, a prescription and cash from an unlocked vehicle. VEHICLE THEFTS The victim was in house in the 600 block of 31st Street when he noticed the dome light was on inside his vehicle that was parked in front of the house. He saw a male sitting inside the vehicle going through the center console. The victim walked up to the suspect, who spoke briefly, and then ran eastbound on 31st Street out of sight. The vehicle was probably left unlocked, and nothing appeared to be missing. The victim parked the locked vehicle on the street in front of the residence in the 1500 block of Fifth Street and returned to find the driver’s side door lock had been tampered with. Unknown suspect(s) had stolen two cellphone chargers. Unknown suspect(s) entered the victim’s unlocked vehicle in the 600 block of Eighth Street, ransacked the center console and stole several items, including a GPS, cell phone, credit card, wine, cookbooks, floral prints and a kitchen scale. The victim parked and locked his vehicle on the street in the 2600 block of Maple Avenue

and returned to find papers that had been on the front passenger’s seat were moved to the driver’s seat. An iPod and sunglasses were missing from the center console, and a fishing reel was taken from the trunk. No suspects were seen or heard, and there were no signs of forced entry. Officers received a call from the 2800 block of Laurel Avenue regarding two subjects seen trying to access a parked vehicle on the street. Officers checked the area and ultimately located the two subjects who were identified, detained and arrested for possession of stolen property.

A Long Beach man has been arrested on suspicion of groping a cleaning woman in a bathroom at his Hermosa Beach workplace after she rejected his repeated advances, police said Tuesday. Michael Jeffrey Dyer was arrested May 16, two days before his 29th birthday, police said. Police said Dyer allegedly offered the woman money for sexual acts on May 14, and threatened her verbally and physically when she repeatedly turned him down.

ARIES Now that we are on the other side of the New Moon Eclipse in Gemini, thoughts and new ideas about how to take your life forward are sure to be blazing new inner trails, keeping you unusually inspired regarding a certain piece of your future. You have entered a special window of time being that we are between eclipses as they always come in pairs. This two-week period of time heightens your sensitivity and energetic output and as a result will increase your power of attraction and effectiveness especially when you direct your energy with focus and a pure intent. Eclipse season is also known for surprises and yet nothing is random. You have been pursuing a certain path and investing a great deal of your heart and

ATTEMPTED BURGLARY Unknown suspect(s) used some type of torch to cut the coin storage compartment of a washing machine in the 100 block of 22nd Street. The suspect(s) did not get any money.

HERMOSA BEACH STOLEN VEHICLES A Ford F150 was stolen from the 300 block of Pacific Coast Highway. No one was seen or heard. A GMC Yukon was taken from 24th Street and Hermosa Avenue in the early morning hours. THEFTS Unknown suspect(s) took the victim’s wetsuits and surfboards that had been hanging next to the front door in the 2000 block of Circle Drive. Unknown suspect(s) entered a parking garage in the 400 block of Monterey and stole a bicycle. Unknown suspect(s) entered a parking garage in the 400 block of Herondo and stole a bicycle.

Man arrested for allegedly groping cleaning woman in Hermosa workplace by Larry Altman

Unknown suspect(s) entered a parking garage in the 2000 block of Pacific Coast Highway and stole a bicycle. Unknown suspect(s) entered a parking garage and stole a bicycle in the 1600 block of Ardmore. Another bicycle, described as a Schwinn mountain bike, was stolen from the same block days later.

She was followed into a bathroom. Dyer allegedly locked the door to prevent her from leaving and assaulted her, police said. The victim contacted her employer and called police. Dyer was released from jail after posting bail. Police did not disclose the name of Dyer’s employer, but Dyer wrote on his Facebook site that he is a senior web developer at HYFN, a mobile and social app development company. A spokesman for HYFN said Dyer was employed at the company for two weeks and has been fired. The company does not condone his behavior, the spokesman said. He previously worked from December 2011 to April 2012 as a senior front-end developer at Dealer.com in Manhattan Beach. Dyer’s Facebook entries indicate he frequents beach cities’ bars.

Soul in certain matters which means you have the potential now to experience unthinkable breakthroughs that may seemingly come out of nowhere. Your mind is a master now. Use it well and you will win against all odds!

TAURUS It is amazing how energy works. You can push and push and prod and pull and get nothing. You can wish and pray and will your way in whatever direction and still find no movement. But there are times, like now, when simply letting go of the reins and surrendering your energy, giving it up to the gods, so to speak, when a world of new insights and revelations can enter equaling magical movement. We are in the middle

GARAGE BURGLARY Unknown suspect(s) entered a parking garage in the 400 block of Monterey and removed all four wheels and tires from the victim’s vehicle. The vehicle was found propped up on four milk crates with tires and wheels missing. The victim parked and secured their vehicle the night before.

Unknown suspect(s) smashed out the window of a vehicle in the 1200 block of First Place. A Kindle and a gift card were taken from inside the vehicle. No one was seen or heard.

REDONDO BEACH THREATS The parking attendant at King Harbor Marina was approached by a subject in a vehicle who demanded to be let into the lot without paying a fee. When the attendant refused, the subject became angry and threatened the attendant with physical harm. The subject backed his vehicle away, then got out and positioned himself so the attendant couldn’t exit the parking booth. The subject threatened the attendant again and took the attendant’s cell phone, which was sitting on the counter. The subject then got back into his vehicle, threw the phone onto the ground and destroyed it before fleeing the scene. The attendant had had contact with the subject in the past, and officers were able to confirm his identity.

of a two-week window between an intensified eclipse period where anything goes. This period is karmic and fated in many ways, and whatever is occurring at this time is going to be setting the stage for the next six months, if not for your entire life, as you will see come June 5. Venus, your ruler, is retrograde in Gemini in your house of how you earn and what you value. It will form an incredibly rare conjunction to the Sun the day following a Full Moon Eclipse on June 4. Life as you know it may very well transform in a blink. Relinquish control and surrender, for the universe knows better how to help you reach your greatest potential.

pictures can’t find your head space. As Mars in Virgo makes a square to your Sun, there will undoubtedly be emotion stirring, in some cases anger, but it will motivate you well. The anger surfaces so you can feel the depth of whatever injustice there may have been in order for certain lines to never to be crossed again. But other feelings will come, too. Feelings of desire to bring an end to something, for that full-circle feeling to fill which will let freedom ring in your Soul. Your ruler, Mercury, is conjunct Jupiter as I type in Taurus, the sign that precedes your own, suggesting there is no better time to put something to rest and to feel peace in the place where it used to reside. You are straddling two worlds, one is finishing and the other is about to equal a very bright new beginning. Your ruler ends a long road of travels and closes a door as he enters Gemini Thursday, May 24. No better time than today to create your new tomorrow!

GEMINI As we enter a new forecast week, prepare for some hyper-reflection not just about your recent past but about your whole history and in some cases the lives preceding this one. You will feel it in your bones and in your blood even if the actual

The Mustangs then proved it on the court in the CIF Southern Section Division I boys’ championship at Cypress College last Saturday, winning in five games, 25-19, 2522, 25-27, 21-26, 15-12. “It’s the best feeling I have ever had in my life,” said Mira Costa’s Scott Stephanoff. “It just makes this year so much better.” But the Mustangs’ season isn’t over yet. They defeated Cathedral, 25-9, 25-12, 25-13, Tuesday night at home in the CIF Southern California Regionals Division II and now will play tonight at home against L.A. Jordan in the semifinals. If Costa wins Thursday, they will play for the championship Saturday at Irvine Valley College.

Mira Costa lost to Loyola in two earlier meetings, but was in position to sweep Loyola in three games in its third try. “It means a lot because I was a sophomore when we lost to Loyola in the final in 2010, and it feels great just to come out on top this time as a senior,” said Karl Acres. “Loyola is such a fine program,” said Mira Costa Head Coach Mike Ninnis, who won his first title as head coach. “One game to 15 (in a fifth game), anything can happen. We thought that our middles were strong and I think they showed it tonight.” Mira Costa beat every team they lost to during the season with the victory. “It was our redemption tour,” said Mira Costa Assistant Coach Sean Shoptaw. “Our guys were ready. It wasn’t easy, but we got it done.” Mira Costa will now try to make it twofor-two as they try to win the CIF Southern

California Regional Boys Volleyball Championships. They are seeded No. 1 in Division II. Three more victories and they can claim that title. It began Tuesday night at home against Cathedral. The winner plays South Torrance or Jordan on Thursday. If Mira Costa wins both, they will play in the championship on Saturday at 5 p.m. at Irvine Valley College. “That’s definitely big,” said Jackson Carr of this week. “We’re not done yet.” For Loyola, it was a rare loss in the final.

“I’m lucky to win five CIF titles,” said Loyola Head Coach Michael Boehle. “Our school is lucky to have 11 and the fact that we have never lost when we’ve been here is a pretty amazing feat. Sometimes good things have to come to an end.” Mira Costa improved to 32-4 while Loyola dropped to 33-2. Chris Orenic led Mira Costa with 24 kills, 10 digs, three blocks; Stephanoff had 11 kills, three blocks; Acres had 11 kills; Brooks Vani had 13 digs; Kevin Inlow had nine kills, eight digs; Keith Waddell had sixth kills. Jackson Carr contributed 58 assists and 10 digs.

Redondo wins two at CIF finals Costa softball advances in CIF by Jim Leinonen

by Joey Clarke Jr.

Redondo sophomore Dustin Herold saved his best performance of the year for the CIF Southern Section finals held last Saturday at Mt. San Antonio College in Walnut. Herold might have surprised the field, but not himself as he won the boys Division II 800 meter race in 1:54.30, beating his personal best by two seconds. “Winning the CIF-SS 800 as an underestimated sophomore made me believe that it was all just a dream and it never really happened, but when I figured it out I did … the support of my teammates heightened the feeling of my greatest achievement yet,” Herold said. He held off Kyle Medina of Ventura (1:54.52) and Josh Lewis of Loyola (1:54.56), who are both juniors. Herold was the only individual from Redondo or Mira Costa who finished first. Redondo’s girls 4 x 400 relay also took first with a time of 3:54.47 as it beat second place Simi Valley (3:57.25). Amber Gore, Kayla Ferron, Erin South and Anevay Hiehle comprised the relay team. “Our girls 1600-meter relay won CIF for our first relay championship in school history,” said Redondo head track coach Robert Leetch said. Gore, who is just a freshman, also finished second in the girls 800 meter race (2:12.38) and will join Herold, Rachel Bush (3200), Cara Ulizio (1600) and Evan Malone-White (1600) at CIF Southern Section Masters, which takes place on Friday at Cerritos College with an

Mira Costa has gone from the wild card round to the quarterfinals after reeling off three straight wins in the CIF-SS Division III softball playoffs. The Mustangs’ latest win was over the champions from the Pacific 7 league, Atascadero from Central California, 10-8 on Tuesday. The teams traded the lead back and forth through the first five innings before Mira Costa (24-7) shut the door in the final two frames. Trailing 8-6, the Mustangs capitalized on three fifth-inning errors by Atascadero (254) to rally for four runs. “It was definitely a battle, and we went back and forth for most of the game, but in the fifth inning we knew we needed to score a bunch of runs, and we wanted it more than them,” captain Katie Saunders said. With the score tied at eight, pinch hitter Montana Hunter came through with the game-winning hit on a twoRBI double. “The real star of the game was one of my juniors who came off the bench and drove in the game winner,” coach Dick Amberik said. From there, Costa held on to the lead with freshman Kasey Hutton on the mound. Hutton allowed only one

opportunity to compete at CIF State in Clovis on June 1 and 2. “Making it to the CIF Masters meet was furthest from my mind as I started the season back in January,” Gore said. Ulizio and Evan Malone-White finished third in their respective 1600-meter races.

by Jim Leinonen David Kim of Mira Costa shot an evenunder-par 72 at Riversideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Victoria Golf Club and finished in a tie for fifth at the CIF Southern Section Individual finals out of 105 golfers on Monday. Kim, who is one of 28 golfers who survived the cut, is the only golfer from the South Bay still playing. The senior now advances to the CIF-Southern California Golf Association Regional Boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Golf Championship on May 31 at Brookside Golf Course in Pasadena. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew where to miss it and what my strategy and game plan was going into the round,â&#x20AC;? said Kim, who recorded four birdies on his round. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I played pretty solid. I started off pretty good. I was 2-under through 11 and then made some careless mistakes coming in. I was a couple over and then brought it back even.â&#x20AC;? Johnny Ruiz of Camarillo had the low score with a 66. The golfers will play the No. 1 course, according to Kim, who has never played there. He plans on doing so at least once before the regional plays out. He knows much of his competition. His low score this year is a 61, and he will be shooting for an even lower score than the 72 he shot in Riverside. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My goal is around 66, 67,â&#x20AC;? Kim said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I heard from past experience that 70 usually gets in. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a tough task, but I think I can do it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve worked all senior year to get my game ready for next year (at the University of Illinois) so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m feeling pretty confident. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m feeling ready,â&#x20AC;? he added.

M i r a Costaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s David Kim moves on in CIF-SS golf. (photo by Jim Leinonen)

If he survives the next cut, which is the last one before state, he will become the first boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; player from Mira Costa to play in the state championships. He is so close now to something very special. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of my goals this year was actually to win state,â&#x20AC;? Kim said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That would be pretty cool.â&#x20AC;? This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s competition is going to be held at the San Gabriel Country Club on June 6. Kim said he owes a lot to his parents, Peter and Helen, and his coaches for where he is. He also has two sisters who both play golf, Megan and Ashley. Megan played in the state championships last fall as a sophomore at Mira Costa. Redondoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Michael Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Angelo also competed on Monday, but missed the cut with a 79.

by Joey Clarke Jr. Pacific, the second seed in CIF-SS Division II, proved to be too much for the Redondo baseball team, and their season came to an end with a 7-0 loss in the first round of the playoffs May 17. Kyle Davis was near perfect on the mound for Pacifica (Garden Grove) and helped his own cause with a two-run homer at the plate to set the pace for the win. He took a no-hitter into the seventh before Matt Esparza came through with a one-out single. He finished after 6.1 innings with seven strikeouts and allowed only the one hit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He (Davis) threw hard and had command of his secondary pitches,â&#x20AC;? Esparza said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we were on him pretty well in the early innings, hitting him hard, but in the third he settled in to get his off speed pitches over for strikes and became a lot harder to hit.â&#x20AC;? Redondo (17-13) had runners on first and third with one out in the top of the first, but Dylan Hatch struck out and Esparza was caught stealing second for a strike-him-out, throw-him-out double play to end the inning. Hatch kept Pacifica (24-5) off the scoreboard through the first two innings before Davis connected for his two-run blast in the third. Pacifica then capitalized on two Redondo errors in the fourth to break the game open by scoring four runs in the inning.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we played well. We knew it was going to be a challenge, we knew Pacifica was a really good team, but we earned the opportunity to be there and we thought if we played well enough, we could knock them off,â&#x20AC;? Esparza said. Hatch was chased after surrendering four earned runs on 13 hits in 4.1 innings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Hatch) really threw the ball well. His stat line is not accurate of how he pitched,â&#x20AC;? coach Jeff Baumback said. Andrew Baer retired the only batter he faced in relief, and Rock Capone struck out two batters in his one inning of work. The loss came just two days after Redondo earned its first CIF playoff win since 2008 with a 5-2 win over Ramona in the wildcard round. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m proud of how the program is doing. We battled and got a lot out of our talent,â&#x20AC;? Baumback said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We won a playoff game, competed for the league championship and are heading in the right direction.â&#x20AC;? The Sea Hawks will lose 16 seniors to graduation, but Baumback says theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ready to reload next season from junior varsity and freshman squads who had successful seasons. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had a good year. A lot of people felt comfortable in their roles, and the team really developed some good chemistry,â&#x20AC;? Esparza said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never forget and be able to look back on with fond memories.â&#x20AC;?

Ulizio said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am very excited to race at Masters and I know what to expect since I raced there last year.â&#x20AC;? Malone-White will join Herold as the only runners from the boys team to advance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an honor to get the chance to run with the elite runners Southern California has to offer,â&#x20AC;? Malone-White said. Bush, who is a senior, finally reached Masters after finishing seventh in 10:53.75. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ultimately the most accomplishing feeling I have experienced in track, this is my first time making it to Masters and also my last chance to do what I can,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to go out with a bang.â&#x20AC;? Redondo had three runners in the girls 1600, but Ferron (sixth-5:01.70) and Mull came up short. Mull did not finish due to an asthma attack. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was a devastating blow to our team,â&#x20AC;? Leetch said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lyndsey has been one of the cornerstones to our proud program and for her to not advance on a day where she was clearly considered one of the favorites is tough.â&#x20AC;? Bay League champion Anavey Heilhie of Redondo, who is a freshman, finished eighth in the 400 in 59.03. For Mira Costa, they had several high finishes, but no one advanced to Masters. Kyle Hubbard was third in the 110 hurdles (14.71) and fourth in the 300 hurdles (39.05). Ashlee Dotson was seventh in the 400 meters (58.95) and ninth in the 200 meters (25.61). Acacia Moore was sixth (15.31) in the 100 hurdles. Daniel Golubovic finished fifth in the high jump (6â&#x20AC;&#x2122;-3â&#x20AC;?) and pole vault (14â&#x20AC;&#x2122;-3â&#x20AC;?) just barely missing Masters in both events. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am sure that he will have a very successful college career in track and field,â&#x20AC;? said Mira Costa pole vault coach Murray Mead of Golubovic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think that if he gets some good college coaching he may one day become an â&#x20AC;&#x153;eliteâ&#x20AC;? pole vaulter.â&#x20AC;? Mira Costaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other two vaulters, Sean Griffin, tied for sixth (13â&#x20AC;&#x2122;-9â&#x20AC;?), and Christian Ritchie, 10th (12â&#x20AC;&#x2122;-9â&#x20AC;?). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Christian is a coachâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dream athlete,â&#x20AC;? Mead said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He has exceptional skills and is dedicated to working as hard as needed to succeed.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve come a long way and couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be more proud of my progression as an athlete,â&#x20AC;? said Ritchie, who is going to go to Mt. SAC this fall to continue his vaulting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All of this is

thanks to Murray who dedicated his time and shares his passion with us. He has created and fed an addiction I now have, adrenaline.â&#x20AC;? Scale cleared 15-feet in practice recently and is looking forward to the Junior Olympics, according to Mead.

Softball (Continued from page 34) hit over the last 2.1 innings to earn the win. Starter and 20-game winner Breanna Kelly gave up three earned runs on nine hits in four innings. The Mustangs swung the bats well all night long, totaling 13 hits, including six for extra bases. They set the tone early by scoring two runs in the bottom of the first, and the offense never slowed. Costa trailed twice in the game at 3-2 after the top of the third and 8-6 heading into the bottom of the fifth. Both times they fell behind, they answered with four-run rallies in the bottom half of that inning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fact that we kept hitting the entire game and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give up was important,â&#x20AC;? Saunders said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew we were facing a tough team, so we came out strong and played really well.â&#x20AC;? Nikki Gialketsis went 3 for 4 with four RBIs and a run scored. Taylor Glover hit a solo home run, two doubles and scored two runs for a near-perfect three-hit day. Saunders reached base three times and scored two runs with two walks and a single. Brittany Were, Meghan Von Behren and Stefanni Lajeunesse each had an RBI. The Mustangs fought back from a 3-0 deficit in their first-round game to beat Highland from Palmdale. The Mustangs scored a run in the sixth and seventh to force extra innings, and won it in the eighth on a home run by Gialketsis. Costa will take on the top seed in the playoffs, Chino Hills (29-3), who are currently riding a 23-game win streak, on Thursday on the road at the Big League Dreams-Wrigley Field in Chino Hills, beginning at 3:15 p.m.

Volleyball (Continued from page 34) Nick Porterfield led Loyola with 21 kills, Alex Slaught added 18 kills, and Parker Boehle had eight digs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every single game was close, and it was just those little points here and there that made the difference,â&#x20AC;? Carr said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stuff like that decides matches.â&#x20AC;?

On Saturday, May 26, the South Bay Surf League will be recognizing outstanding surfers, coaches, judges and contributors from its first 20 years (1993-2012). There will be a social gathering, plaque unveiling and certificate presentation at Riviera Mexican Grill in Redondo Beach (Ave I and Pacific Coast Highway), from 11 a.m. to noon. In addition, for those wanting to get in the water, there will be a surf-about at â&#x20AC;&#x153;Burnoutâ&#x20AC;? from 9 to 10:30 a.m. and a meet and greet at the beach park on the cliff above. Surfers to be recognized include Bobby Kithcart and John Scully from Bishop Montgomery; Alex Abad, Eddie Lester, Josh Gilberts and Kent Nashiya from El Segundo; Brent Bowen, Chris Broman, Dane Zaun, Dayton Silva, Hannah Stiles, John Balk, John Smart, Payne English, Kelly Zaun, Maddie Hawks, Mike Sordia, Tommy Ostendorf, Tony Gonella and Wyatt Boyd from Mira Costa; Alex Gray, Chris Bredesen Jr. Holly Beck, Kenny Nagasawa, Derek Diagault, Kyle Jax, Matt Kelly and Ted Travers from Peninsula; Redondoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chad Elliot, Connor Beaty, Dillon Thomas, Jamie Miestrell, Sean Walker and Trevor Ellis; San Pedroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brett Rinehart, Jeremy Nunez, Tony Adams; and Southâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ashley Kelsey, Carrie Kintz, Doug DiSanti, Hagen Kelly, Johnny Joseph Jr, Lisa Tuttle, Natalie Anvinzino, Shawn Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien and Kelly Moore. Selections are based on what was accomplished while surfing in the SBSL and are limited to surfers who have graduated. There are several league champions not selected and a few who did not win league titles that were. There was a lot of time and effort put into this and comments such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;he or she is a better surferâ&#x20AC;? might be true. We tried to be as objective as possible. The criteria used was what was accomplished while competing in league. We also tried to compare surfers from year to year who did not surf against each other. This was the subjective part.

JUST WEIGHT!

Pregnant women should forget about â&#x20AC;&#x153;eating for twoâ&#x20AC;? and not view their condition as a license to overeat. The fact is that any excess weight gained during the first trimester contributes minimally to the birth weight of the baby and adds to the mother-to-beâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stores of body fat. Thus, any immediate weight gain at the very start of the pregnancy should be the reason to have a diet and nutrition consultation with the obstetrician. The actual recommended increase in daily caloric intake is only 300 calories per day in the second and third trimesters. The latest recommendations from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists call for women at a healthy pre-pregnancy weight to gain 25 to 35 pounds.

M.B. Youth Council (Continued from page 14) the city attorney, one as city manager, and so on. “I told two kids you’re voting for it, two kids you’re against it and one, you’re the swing vote and you have to decide,” said Councilwoman Amy Howorth, who led the simulation. “I gave them the staff report to back up their opinions. It was unbelievable.” One of the students’ favorite programs was the discussion led by Police Chief Eve Irvine, who talked about her first day on the job and working for the Inglewood Police Department. The students were transfixed. “It was really neat to see the kids interacting in a way that wasn’t about grades. There was no pressure on them,” Howorth said. “They were able to relax and enjoy what people had to say rather than worry about being tested on it.” Howorth’s oldest son, Ari, 17, originally wanted to sign up for Leadership Manhattan Beach, but missed the application deadline. The city told the Mira Costa High School junior about joining Mayor’s Youth Council instead. “It sounded exactly like what I wanted to do, going to hear about different people in our community who did what they wanted to do and were happy with their decision,” he said. “Everything we did was very cool.” Ari said the most interesting sessions were the ones held off-site, like the entrepreneurship session at the Body Glove office. “It was cool to see the person who we were talking to in their own environment and to watch them interact with coworkers,” he said. Although many of his classmates graduated from the program on May 15 knowing what career path they now want to follow, Ari said he is still undecided. “It did provide me with confidence in my future, that no matter what I decide there are so many different things I can do, even within the same field,” he said. Fellow student Noelle Claycomb echoed Ari’s sentiments; she was so impacted by the program she plans to stay involved as an advisor. “I learned that there are many ways to be successful in life, and that there is a huge world of opportunities awaiting me,” she said. “I was able to learn and grow into a more knowledgeable person by grasping the principles and methods that were taught and really practicing them through the various activities throughout the year.” Parks and Recreation Commissioner and former school board member Nancy Hersman will lead the program going forward. She plans to meet with Mayor’s Youth Council graduates, like Ari, to get input on best tailoring the program to the students’ needs and how to improve it. “We want to expose kids to a lot of leadership styles and professions, broaden their horizons,” Hersman said. “It’s showing how your ideas may be great, but then how does it work with the city. Do you need a variance? A business license? It’s getting the kids to think broader.” Amy Howorth said the program will become an official city program, with the city covering the minimal costs and solving the risk management concerns of having the students on off-site field trips, fingerprinting volunteers, etc. Next year’s program will be limited to 25 students, sophomores through seniors, who attend school in Manhattan Beach or live in

Manhattan Beach. The program will go before City Council on June 5 for approval. If approved, the applications will be available online the next day and due June 15, Hersman said. The next group of Mayor’s Youth Council will begin workshops in September. Cohen and Howorth noted the importance of the high schoolers’ input on city issues. The architect firm working on the new city library made a special presentation to the students, who in turn contributed their ideas. “They were very thoughtful about it, and the architects incorporated some of their ideas into the planning,” Howorth said. “It was valuable input we don’t get otherwise.” Cohen said Manhattan Beach teens have their finger on the pulse of the community. But the city, Cohen noted, has a “dismal” rate of democratic participation, with only 22 percent of eligible voters participating in local elections. “I think the younger you are when you realize the impact you can have on your daily life, the better,” she said. “We need to start educating people at a younger age about the importance of democracy. It really only works if the individual participates in it.”

M.B. Dolan saga (Continued from page 14) Barrera filed an appeal of the judge’s decision on Dolan’s behalf on May 16. “I do think the judge made a mistake,” Barrera said this week. “She is a good judge, but she was in the middle of a very busy jury trial and knew she was keeping a jury waiting. She’s didn’t give us a lot of time to argue. I think if she had given us more time, we could have persuaded her to deny the motion.” Barrera said Bryant-Deason made her ruling based on what the judge had decided in the McKee case, which was incorrect. Barrera went back and looked at the McKee file. “Last March, when Wadden raised the issue of the anonymous letter in the McKee case, he never told the judge that Dolan had signed a contract, and the city agreed to keep the employee records confidential,” he said. “He just said, ‘We have this letter and we want to keep it confidential and keep it sealed.’ He didn’t say that there was a contract that required the city to keep it sealed.” Therefore, Bryant-Deason did not have all of the information to make her decision, Barrera said. “In my heart of hearts I believe that there was a breach of contract. I would like to help Geoff,” he said. Diaz remains optimistic about the city’s fate. “(The judge’s decision) was such a clear victory for the city, we had hoped that Dolan would have second thoughts about moving forward, but that’s his prerogative,” she said. “There’s not much I can do about that.” Once Barrera files his opening brief with the court of appeals, Diaz and outside counsel will assemble a responding brief. Diaz expects the city to use the same outside counsel since they are already familiar with the case. “This was not a simple case,” she said. “It will be much more cost-effective since they already know all of the facts.” A panel of three appellate court judges will read the briefs, listen to oral arguments and then make their decision, Barrera said. In the meantime, Diaz plans to file a motion to recover the city’s attorney fees

from Dolan, calculated at $125,000, which is “very reasonable” for this type of case, Diaz said. Although the statute under which the city won provides for the winning party to recoup its attorney fees, Bryant-Deason will hear the city’s motion and make a ruling, Diaz said. “The judge still has discretion in respect to the fees even though we’re entitled to them,” Diaz said. “We will be pursuing the most amount of fees that we can within the confines of what the judge says.” Barrera said he could not yet comment, since the city has not filed the motion, but promised to oppose it. “The statute does award attorney fees to the prevailing party, but because we filed an appeal we don’t think there’s a determination of who the prevailing party is,” he said. “But I can’t stop them. If that’s what they’re going to do, that’s what they’re going to do.”

M.B. Eagle Scouts (Continued from page 14) Eagle service project and holding a leadership position within the troop, Rolandelli said. For their service project requirement, local scouts complete projects like building trails, revamping the old house in Polliwog Park, retrofitting the Manhattan Beach Botanical Garden or doing trail work and replanting for the US Forest Service. Some years the troop has had as many as seven boys make it up the ranks to Eagle, other years just one. Becoming an Eagle Scout, Rolandelli said, strengthens a boy’s ability to lead, get something accomplished, set goals and achieve them. “If I hadn’t learned the leadership skills I learned in scouting, I wouldn’t have done the things I did in college — captain of the cross-country team, active in church and in the community,” he said. “It does shape the boys. The neat thing is, we get to see it.” Rolandelli said he got his first job because he was an Eagle Scout. He earned the honor when he was 14, and the president of The May Company in Ohio told him the day he turned 16, he had a job. “They realize the characteristics and values of boys who achieve this,” he said. “It comes up on resumes and college applications. “Boy Scouts boils down to providing boys a venue to grow and learn in the outdoors and in their community and provide them with a leadership opportunity.” For more information on the July 7 dinner and celebration, “Eagles Forever,” at the Torrance Doubletree Hotel, e-mail 100eagles@troop849.org.

R.B. child care center (Continued from page 18) of space, Haji said. “We were still looking, and meanwhile, Kelly must have spoken to the CEO, Susan Burden, who said they can give us more space. That’s how we got in a relationship,” she explained. By November 2010, BCHD signed a contract with Beach Cities Child Development Center to lease and improve the space formerly leased to Kids Care Station. By last month, BCCDC had built its second center, including a classroom and indoor and outdoor play areas, with 6,000 square feet provided by BCHD.

“It’s gorgeous,” Haji said. The Prospect Avenue campus is licensed for 104 children, ages 2 to 6 years. In its first month of operation, 18 students have enrolled, and “the number climbs steadily every week,” Olin said. “They did a tremendous job with the space,” Burden said. “It was the lower level of an old hospital, with group rooms, offices and a commercial laundry. It was dreary, and is now adorably cute.” Besides offering a welcome service for medical employees and the public, “having the BCCDC here gives us more money to provide services for the community,” Burden said. The BCHD helps fund nurses, health aides, PE teachers and health-related services in the beach cities. Olin said she was drawn to the BCCDC because of the curriculum, low rate of teacher turnover and low student-teacher ratio, but one detail prompted her to enroll her son: “I did not see a television set,” Olin said. Olin’s son is now in public school, but she sees children at the center every day at work. “I see a dozen kids who are happy, engaged and active,” she said. “It’s lovely to see artwork from the kids on the wall. They have play space adjacent to our seniors that provides intergenerational communication, and the opportunities for sharing are wonderful.” Each child at the BCCDC receives music instruction and a yoga class for one hour each a week, provided by Fundamentals of Music and Yoga Buddies. “It is not an extracurricular, where the child receives it if the parent pays for it. I do not believe in doing that to a child,” Haji said. “We want every single child to be able to have some culture and learn some music.” The environment is calming for the children, she said. “When you visit, rarely do you find a child crying and upset. We accommodate them very well and are extremely caring and loving.” In fact, the BCCDC’s mission statement is visible in every room: to provide highquality child care and education. “Parents will experience peace of mind knowing their children are cared for in a loving and nurturing environment,” the statement says. Haji knows how important good teachers are to the success of the center. “My teachers receive vacations and 401K and education benefits,” she said. “I give them uniforms and treat them the way they would want to be treated as an employees. I have teachers who have been here six to eight years. They don’t leave. Because of them, we’re able to run a beautiful child care center.” Haji has always been passionate about young children, and creating the BCCDC was a longtime dream of hers. “I want someone to sit with their children and hear them say, ‘It was Miss Zohra who taught me to read,’” she said. “What better paycheck can there be than that?” The Beach Cities Child Development Center is located at 514 N. Prospect Ave. in Redondo Beach. For more information, visit www.beachcitieskids.com or call (310) 370-4966.


May 24, 2012 ● The Beach Reporter ● 39 (Continued from page 31) CANCER It is quite natural to need to feel validated and loved in the world and for such a soft and nurturing Soul like yourself, Cancer, who so needs to be nurtured fully in return, it can feel like a cold place when a little warmth has a hard time finding its way to your door. I speak to you often about your life lessons in learning to create your own inner sense of emotional security, not depending on others for such things, so you can feel grounded and strong on your own. But you are human and you live in a world of relationships, designed for giving and sharing, so of course you naturally long to harmonize safely with others. Interestingly enough, there is an enormous amount of energy brewing and building all in your house of invisible help. This does not mean unavailable help, it means invisible, as in people working behind the scenes on your behalf. Once again it may be the only place you find comfort this week as you quietly turn in and find refuge in those simple spaces. No doubt you are loved and needed by others as this will become quite apparent this week, but the key now is in shifting your energetic inner space to allow for your own needs to be equally met in return. Give in to the magic that you can’t see but that you will soon feel for real.

LEO As tricky and taxing as things may feel and seem these days, there is not a thing too big that you will not have the wisdom and the wherewithal to handle. We are between two powerful eclipses. The New Moon Solar Eclipse that occurred on Sunday, May 20, and the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse set to occur on Monday, June 4. Also the day following, on June 5, the rarest of rare astronomical events will occur when Venus crosses the face of the Sun, known as a Venus Occultation. This suggests unexpected turns are coming on the road ahead, turns that offer a better way through when you take the side or back road to avoid trouble or chaos. There may be this feeling of the ‘near miss’ where you know and can feel the truth of others truly having your back. At the very least, your Soul is destined for progress and creative outbursts where innovation and ingenuity become your two new best friends. Keep your heart fully in it while allowing your objective lens to direct the unusual yet oddly beneficial flow!

VIRGO This week for you is about courage, Virgo, to say what you need to say and then let the chips fall where they may. It is about emotional honesty even though you know it may turn a few heads and injure a few hearts. This eclipse season which extends from May 20 through June 4 is ripe for releasing a boatload of gravity, all the heaps of mental content that has been strapped to your body and Soul, unnecessarily so. I am giving you permission to remove the weight and embrace a freedom you have never known. The intensity of energy that fills this two week window is more potent than you know and so rich with opportunity to advance your journey and keep you honest and true to the commitment you made before you entered you Mother’s womb. With Mars still in your sign, Virgo, the advice is this, “If you feel it, do it, before your thoughts sneak in and change your mind.” You are finding a new groove and feeling the true depth of your power as your confidence will visibly grow stride by stride!

LIBRA Patience pays as you wrestle with your desire to force something forward, yet instead you allow a natural pause to occur. When you encourage a natural space to be created, this invites new energy to fill that place. Steady Saturn in your sign still makes a favorable trine to your ruler Venus which is retrograde in Gemini. As strong as this signature is in terms of reflecting something you can count on, the glory and the gain may not immediately show itself. In other words, the patience and the steady pace that comes with the understanding that timing is everything and things will have a way of working themselves out. In this two week eclipse window that we find ourselves in the middle of, life will have a way of doing its thing one way or another. What needs to happen will happen in ways more fated perhaps than during any other time, and the more

if the veil between this world and the other side has become more transparent, allowing you to see and feel the full potential of your dreams. You have a slew of planets backing you now if you feel the impetus to do the unthinkable. You truly have nothing to lose with a great deal more to gain. Your Soul is ready and the universe is waiting!

SCORPIO There is nothing more unsettling than finding yourself on two different pages with the ones you care most about. They think the problem is you, you thinking the problem is them and in the end nothing gets resolved. All that happens is that the emotions magnify and intensify, creating an even greater distance between you and where you want to be. It is important now that you really hear what another is saying, that you ask them about their fears and what may be going on within them. That you take in to your very center the truth of their words and how something has been impacting them. If you listen and lean in their direction, if they feel heard and supported, an entire rush of the same energy that you have been seeking and needing will return in an instant. Eclipses can create an intensification of emotion and heighten dissatisfaction so that these areas can be rightly addressed. We just experienced a New Moon Eclipse on Sunday, May 20, and a Full Moon Eclipse is coming June 4. Make this window of time work for you, however, in order for this to occur, you must first make a sincere and selfless move!

SAGITTARIUS There are occasions when the planets align in such a way that a magnetized focus is unquestionably directed to karmically address a certain area of your life and for you, Sag, it is all about your relationships. The recent New Moon Eclipse in Gemini on Sunday, May 20, no doubt contributed largely to this feeling of laser beam whereby your Soul has been in full review about where you stand, how this works and do they fit in? What was going on before is not going on anymore, and what you once may have pictured something or someone to be is now all up for review. Venus, the planet of relationships, is also moving retrograde in your house of others, along with the Sun and Mercury. What this means is that the light will be shining on all of these thoughts, how to improve this arena and what direction to take it. Some relationships will end, and new ones will begin, and the ones that survive will morph once again to support the intended growth of the connection. It is a true testing ground and you will come to know what whatever you have got is made of. Allow the entirety of the past to teach and guide you!

PISCES When your heart is happy, the world just works — it’s that simple! No amount of success in any area of life matters if matters of the heart are in turmoil. The recent New Moon Eclipse this past Sunday, May 20, landed in your house of home and the emotional body creating a spotlight on those personal affairs of the heart. A new sort of growth curve is in place now that may require some tough love in cases but will ulti-

R.B. furloughs (Continued from Page 23) efficiency and reducing operating costs so that more general funds could be spent in the classroom, including teacher compensation. By law, monies raised by bond sales cannot be devoted to teacher salaries. Isom said that including an additional 6 percent of voters who “lean yes” for the bond measure, the survey showed a total favorable response of 59.8 percent. Proposition 39, passed in 2000, requires 55 percent voter approval for school bond measures. Although the district has not done a detailed analysis of the funding that could come from a bond, the survey assumed that $68 million could be raised over 25 years. The bonds would be paid back by each property owner paying approximately $32 per year for each $100,000 in assessed valuation per year. When the $32 cost was explained to those being surveyed, support dipped slightly below the 50 percent mark but inched back up when lower assessments of $24 and $18 were offered, lowering the overall amount of funds the bond would raise. Isom said one of the brightest aspects of the results was that 75 percent of those polled rated the quality of education provided by RBUSD

mately create a better working balance between you and the ones you love. Venus is also in this sector of your chart, and as she moves retrograde she helps you recover some of your emotional base as she works to heal some of those inner corners that have been avoided and desperately need nurturing. Consider this time between now and the next eclipse, Monday, June 4, a period to rebuild your inner world, your physical nest and the people that fill that space! When that is thriving and stable, then life can successfully move on!

as “excellent” or “good,” and only 4 percent called it “poor” or “very poor.” He cautioned that while the district was in a strong position to explore a bond, passage would ultimately depend on engaging stakeholders, including parents, teachers and local business people. Keller told board members he wanted to know if they generally supported the concept before putting in staff time to pursue the bond. Board member Jane Diehl said that the board would need more information in order to begin personally gauging support among stakeholders. She asked for a “one-sheet” of a specific bond proposal that could be used when talking to members of the community. “This is a new concept,” she said, referring to previous bonds that we more focused on constructing new buildings. “The more versed we are the better we can do taking it to the next level when we are talking to people.” She added, “This isn’t just about building consensus. It’s a campaign. It’s time and energy and people getting out there.” Keller said that staff will provide a summary that can be used when talking to community members. The deadline for putting a bond measure on the November ballot is Aug. 10.

CAPRICORN If there ever was a time when a Soul feels out of control, it is during eclipse season. If you are feeling a bit like you are free falling and not grounded in your center, it may be because we are sitting right in the middle of it, so to speak. We are between eclipses, the first this past Sunday, May 20, and the second one coming Monday, June 4. These two eclipses serve similar to bookends of energy, and as you travel through this time it can feel as if you are wading through your own unresolved ‘stuff.’ Since this recent eclipse landed in your house of improvements, it can cause you to create a mountain out of a molehill or to exaggerate self-defeating thoughts, making you feel as if something is bigger than it actually is. You may be unusually hard on yourself and doubt may be winning, but the intent now is to figure out a way to turn those upside-down thoughts right side up. This period is designed for you Cappys to go beyond the physical and the mental, to take life and your understanding of your place here to higher realms and into greater atmospheres, because whatever is going on down here just isn’t cutting it. Those inner travels are the only way though the tough stuff. Make a sincere effort and you will sing with relief.

AQUARIUS As Venus in fellow air sign Gemini retrogrades back through your house of creativity, you may find yourself returning to old loves and old ideas that feel unfinished. Where in the past you may have resisted moving forward, you are finding that something is repeating and returning and calling for your attention. If any thought, idea or desire continues to squawk like a skip in a record, it is your Soul’s duty to acknowledge it and carry it through. We are between eclipses, which make the energy at hand far more pronounced. It’s as

815 Manhattan Avenue, Manhattan Beach 310-372-8504 Few things in life are as rewarding as growing a family. For mothers, however, having children may take a major toll on their bodies. These women may take comfort in knowing that it is now possible to turn back the clock on these physical changes through cosmetic surgery. Increasing numbers of mothers are seeking mommy makeovers from their plastic surgeons when childbearing is completed.

Gummies and Tummies

When breastfeeding is done, women may feel sad to say farewell to their full and shapely breasts, especially when they are left with breasts they hardly recognize as their own. Patients complain of sagging, asymmetry, enlarged areolas, loss of upper fullness and nipples pointing south. The Laserbra breast lift uses the patient’s extra breast skin to create an internal brasserie of the patient’s own breast tissue. Laserbra patients experience a dramatic increase in upper breast fullness and a longer lasting lift. It is possible for many mothers to achieve the fullness of breast implants while using only their own breast tissue. If a mother wants a larger breast size, however, implants are necessary. “Gummy Bear” Silicone implants are currently the most popular type of implant. Research proves that women prefer these new cohesive-gel implants, because they are more solid than liquid so there are fewer worries of the implants leaking. Patients rave about the natural feel of these silicone implants. After having children, a mother’s fat redistributes to different areas even if she has not gained weight. The tummy, or “postpartum pouch”, may now be left with a combination of excess skin, fat, stretch marks and possibly even a distorted belly button. It may be impossible to improve the lower abdomen with exercise alone. A tummy tuck procedure is the most common solution for mothers, once they are done having their children. The muscles may be tightened and the excess skin and fat removed for a remarkable return of their flat, pre-pregnancy abdomen. For many women cosmetic surgery is a well-deserved reward after the physical and emotional challenges of motherhood. Mommy makeovers may restore a woman’s body to its former glory, but it is important to choose the surgeon carefully.

the newest member of its board of directors. Erickson recently assumed the position and has begun a three-year term. Erickson is responsible for sales of all Mattel and Fisher-Price toys to the United States Toys ‘R’ Us. This includes advertising, promotions and global strategic planning. During his career at Mattel, he has been recognized as top sales executive six times and has led his retail teams to seven vendor of the year awards for WalMart, Toys ‘R’ Us and Sears Holdings. Erickson has passionately supported Special Olympics for more than 20 years, contributing generously both financially and of his time and talent. In the last five years, he has been a volunteer leader at Summer Games managing medal presentations. The pinnacle of his experience was volunteering at the 2011 Special Olympics World Games in Athens, Greece, which he attended with 50 other “Team Mattel” employee volunteers from around the world. Mattel is a global partner for Special Olympics, supporting young athletes in over 100 countries and engaging nearly 3,000 Mattel employee volunteers each year as part of Team Mattel. Locally, Mattel provides year-round support to athletes in Southern California, partnering on events such as our summer and fall Games Championships, School Games competitions and fundraising events such as Pier del Sol and World of Difference. “The Special Olympics Southern California Board is composed of individuals striving to make a positive difference in people’s lives. I’m grateful for the opportunity to serve with them,” Erickson said. “I have been fortunate to be associated with Special Olympics prior to the appointment and look forward to representing the athletes in this new way.” In addition to being a devoted supporter of Special Olympics, Erickson supports many other charitable organizations focused on helping children in need, such as the Children Affected by AIDS Foundation. He is also a founding member of the Robert E. Hoffman Scholarship Fund and a partner level sponsor for the Children’s Hospital of Michigan. Crowne Plaza aids Ride for Kids Team Crowne Plaza, which pledged that it would raise $500 to benefit the recent Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation’s Ride for Kids in which hundreds of motorcyclists ride to raise funds for the Foundation, brought in nearly three times their pledge recently. Employees and friends of the hotel gave $605 in pledges and another $870 from an all-employee bake sale and raffle, for which more than 20 items were donated by team members and the hotel. Total funds raised came in at $1,475. The hotel, which has supported the foundation for more than five years by donating 1,000 bottles of water annually, is a strong supporter of the IHG Winning Ways community outreach culture that includes the motto “Show We Care.” American Honda Motor Co., Inc., the presenting sponsor of Ride for Kids, hosted a May 6 gathering where cyclists and children benefiting from the foundation rode from the Honda USA headquarters in Torrance through parts of the South Bay. This is the first year that Crowne Plaza Redondo Beach has sponsored two motorcycle riders and set an all-hotel sponsorship goal. According to Deborah Shepard, director of sales and marketing, employees’ goal was $500, and the results exceeded all expectations without any solicitation.

see people that we’ve known over the years that we don’t see very often because they show up at the Fiesta. There are lots of locals who attend.” Former Hermosa Beach resident and artist Linda Pirri said her first Fiesta Hermosa in 1997 changed her life. She was about ready to quit her artistic endeavors when she sold all of her original paintings during that event. “This year I’m coming back, and it’s kind of bittersweet,” Pirri said. “I’m going to semiretire and move to Hawaii in September. So this Fiesta show is very symbolic. It was my very first successful outdoor show, and it changed the course of my art career.” Artist JD Shultz’s family has participated in Fiesta Hermosa since the first event in 1972. His parents, Jack and Carole Shultz, were artists, as is his

brother Adam Stone and his sister Rachel Shultz. “We started with our mom and dad taking us when we were little kids, and then when we were old enough we started to sell our own art,” JD said. He added, “It’s a great place to show the work to a large crowd, and I’ve actually sold a lot of paintings, lots of art. It’s one of my best shows. It’s a great way to kick off the summer.” Ric and Tim Vigallon, brothers and partners, take the long trek from Joshua Tree every Memorial Day and Labor Day, the weekends that Fiesta Hermosa takes place every year, to sell original 3D aluminum and stainless steel wall sculptures. Over the past 20 years, Vigallon has adapted his work and now also focuses heavily on aquatic life and beach scenes, or what he calls “flip-flop art.” (Please turn to page 47)

Going â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Wildâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for TV by Michael Hixon Looking for love in all the wrong places is the mantra for many, but some will go that extra mile â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or maybe more than 2,000 miles to some tropical island â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to find that special someone. Manhattan Beach resident Jesse Wilson did that earlier this year when he battled body and mind and other men for the love of a woman, in the reality show â&#x20AC;&#x153;Love in the Wild.â&#x20AC;? In its second season, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Love in the Wildâ&#x20AC;? will have its premiere Tuesday, June 5, on NBC, from 9 to 11 p.m. With its new host Jenny McCarthy, and a new location,

Manhattan Beach resident battles for a love connection in reality show the Dominican Republic, single men and women are put through adventures that challenge them physically and mentally in the lush tropical paradise of jungles, beaches, waterfalls, mountains and caves while at the same time hoping to find that love connection that eluded them in the past. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were grueling, mind, body and soul â&#x20AC;Ś not only because they were hard, yet you really have to think on these adventures,â&#x20AC;? Wilson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You were also with a partner, someone you could potentially be with, forever or throughout the show. There were a lot of different aspects that went into every single day of shooting down there.â&#x20AC;?

Born in Long Beach and raised in the small town of Oakdale, known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cowboy Capital of the World,â&#x20AC;? just outside Sacramento, Wilson, 33, went to Cal Poly as an undergrad where he played football. He moved to Washington, D.C., where he studied business at American University. He lived there for nine years before he moved to Manhattan Beach more than a year ago to pursue acting. Late last year a friend suggested that he should try out for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Love in the Wild.â&#x20AC;? He said the audition process was â&#x20AC;&#x153;pretty intense.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;There were a couple in-person interviews just to whittle down to a fairly significant group,â&#x20AC;? Wilson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was a lot of testing, physical testing, mental testing. They want to make sure youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re right to be broadcast across the nation and right for the females as well.â&#x20AC;? In a new twist introduced this season, not only did the seven men have to compete with each other, they added seven â&#x20AC;&#x153;surprise guysâ&#x20AC;? to the mix to make it a bit more challenging for the â&#x20AC;&#x153;original guys.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We do have to almost, just like youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at a bar or everyday life, compete with other gentlemen for female attention,â&#x20AC;? Wilson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is what happened with having two sets of guys there.â&#x20AC;? After filming â&#x20AC;&#x153;Love in the Wildâ&#x20AC;? earlier this year, Wilson said he â&#x20AC;&#x153;learned a lot about myself,â&#x20AC;? and that was one of his goals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m perfectly OK with saying I love the idea of love,â&#x20AC;? Wilson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think you can find it on reality shows like anybody else, although a lot of these shows they do their work ahead of time and put people together who they think will work out. I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost better and almost easier to find love on reality TV.â&#x20AC;? After its season premiere, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Love in the Wildâ&#x20AC;? airs Tuesdays from 10 to 11 p.m.

Beach Books Photographic book reveals local character of gates, fences and boundaries were taken in Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach and Redondo Beach. Byrne, a six-year Manhattan Beach resident, has a background in interior design and is an avid gardener.

The authors hope to inspire homeowners and gardeners by sharing how others have put

gates, posts, walkways, arbors, landscaping and art to functional use. Some photos focus on a detail, while others show the relationship of the boundary to the home’s neighborhood or to the beach. Homeowners’ stories f inish the book, offering personal accounts of how their unique gates and enclosures came to be. One resident’s fence is embedded with seashells and small treasures; another’s gate points the way to the beach (“cool”) Linda Byrne and Robert Scott, and to work (“bummer”). authors of “Beach Boundaries: Fences and Gates of Southern California,” will visit Pages bookstore on Thursday, May 31, at 7 p.m. Pages is located at 904 Manhattan Ave. in Manhattan Beach.

Manhattan Beach residents Lynda Byrne and Robert Scott were both struck by a unique feature of beach town living: As front yards become smaller and rarer, homeowners are more likely to delineate their property, and they do so in very creative ways. Their book, “Beach Boundaries: Fences and Gates of the Los Angeles Area Beach Cities,” contains 112 photographs that reveal the functional and creative techniques residents have used to delineate their private space. Many of the photos

Wine Connoisseur Spain is the third largest wine producing wine region in the world and Tempranillo is Spain’s greatest grape. Beronia Rioja is 90 percent Tempranillo and the balance Graciano and Mazuelo. Spain’s wine growing history goes back to 1100 BC. There are 600 varieties of grape and more land under vine than any other country in the world, 3 million acres. Beronia Rioja is ranked as a Gran Reserva. Gran Reservas are made only from the best vintages, but not every year. Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon have many similar characteristics. They are on the bottom shelf with all the cheapies, and on the top shelf with the cult wines. They are the major grape varietal within the region they are grown. And, some of their basic flavor profiles are similar: leather, spice, tobacco and earth. It has been

thought Tempranillo would do well in California because of the hot/dry climate similar to Spain. Tempranillo is very food friendly and will pair well with aged cheeses and red meat dishes. If you are growing tired of the overripe, high-alcohol California wines, get yourself a wine from Rioja or Ribero del Duero, just to mention a couple of Tempranillo-based wines.

Fiesta Hermosa (Continued from page 41)

“We do beach shows to get out of the heat this time of the year,” Vigallon said. “So we book up and down the coast and every weekend or every other weekend so we’re sitting on the beach.” Parking can be a challenge, so a free shuttle bus will run

daily from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. from the Northrop Grumman parking lot at the intersection of Aviation Boulevard and Marine Street in Manhattan Beach. The location was moved two blocks north from last year due to construction at Doolittle and Space Park Drive. For more information, visit www.HBChamber.net or www. FiestaHermosa.com.

Works by Ric Vigallon (above) and his company Vigallart (which he started with his brother, Tim) and JD Shultz (left), whose family has participated in Fiesta Hermosa since its inception 40 years ago, will have their work on display and for sale at this weekend’s event in Hermosa Beach.

The Beach lifestyle is all here for you: SurďŹ ng, Sunning, Biking, Running, Picnicking in Valley Park, or strolling down the Strand into nearby Downtown Manhattan for dinner. This home enjoys plenty of natural light and sweet ocean breezes that drift into the private feeling area of the Master Bedroom that opens to the patio and deck. Once you toast the setting sun from the back yard ocean peek view deck, you will know this is home. This home lives large with so much to offer for those in the know. Add a second story one day and you will enjoy splendid views of the Palos Verdes Peninsula and the crashing surf just down the street.

Custom Beach Plantation on the best Street in the Trees ers Brokri F 12-2

Open Sun 1-4

625 31st Street, Manhattan Beach This home is situated on the best street in the trees, with ideal orientation, offering amazing Southern sun exposure and unheard of views all the way to Palos Verdes. Consisting of 3,380 square feet of truly open living space, it features 4 large bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, two expansive vaulted living areas and two distinct-effortlessly useable outdoor living spaces that are accessed through multiple French doors. This home is picture-perfect for indoor outdoor entertaining year round. The finishes consist of wide plank Oak floors, naturally finished Douglas-fir doors, natural stone, custom tile, wood windows. The gourmet kitchen sits adjacent to the dramatic vaulted family room, open breakfast area and rear yard. The kitchen boasts top of the line commercial grade Thermador range and double oven, sprawling granite counter tops, custom cabinets and an enormous island that is perfect for entertaining. The back yard features an intricately crafted natural Palos Verdes stone patio with a dual sided stone fireplace, outdoor dining room, and an outdoor family room

The elevated, gated grass front yard sits to the South of a large covered view porch that can handle three or four families relaxing and has enough space for little ones to play. Just two blocks to the West is a large grass field which is perfect for throwing a football or kicking a soccer ball. The cul-de-sac back alley is also a great resource for the kids to play in. Did I mention this street is a gas lamp street and one is situated in front of this home to the Southwest? Designed by Jay Stephenson and custom built by KT Zeigler, this home has tremendous natural light pouring in through strategically located windows, vaulting, a clear story and sky lights. Mature trees on both sides make the home and yards extra private but do not block the natural sunlight. There are few chances to live on this street or on this block in a custom, functional, family home of this elegance. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let this chance get away from you.

Having been on both sides of the tracks between an independent real estate company and the Prudential franchise network, I have a very clear picture of the distinctive differences between the two. Doors of opportunity have been opened as a direct result of utilizing the Prudential name, logo, and network. While still servicing my local client needs, I am currently working with Prudential agents from central California to San Diego on transactions on behalf of my investors. I have long term business relationships that are spreading to the Western US and it is all because of utilizing the Prudential Real Estate network in each community in every state. It is a blessing, and a monster opportunity for each and every agent who wants to work hard and apply the Prudential systems already in place, to the benefit of their clientele.
