    One of La Jolla’s most iconic trees has fallen. 
     
    The over 100-year-old Monterey Cypress that sat in Ellen Browning Scripps Park and was long believed to be the inspiration behind Dr. Seuss’ “The Lorax,” fell over on June 13. Tim Graham, the spokesman for the San Diego Parks and Recreation Department, said that the tree’s old age was likely the cause. 
     
    "While it's difficult to determine the exact cause, it is likely that the age of the tree was a major factor,” he said. "The tree, while not dead, was over 100 years old. Monterey Cypress tend to have a range between 40-140 years. Tree failures in older trees are not uncommon.” 
     
    While it’s been referred to as the “Lorax Tree” by many La Jollans for decades, it’s not clear if it really inspired Theodor Seuss Geisel to write the 1971 children’s book. According to Dr. Seuss Enterprises, what inspired the “Truffla trees” is still very much a mystery. 
     
    "We really have no idea if Ted based the Truffula trees on this particular tree,” said Susan Brandt, president of Dr. Seuss Enterprises. "But regardless we are saddened to hear that this beautiful tree has fallen down, as we are when any tree that has lived for decades falls.”
     
    A representative from UC San Diego — which has a long history with the Geisel family — also said that La Jolla’s “Lorax Tree” was only lore and that neither Theodore or Audrey Geisel designated it as such. 
     
    Still, the tree served as an important piece of the community for many of its residents. 
     
    “The much loved 'Lorax Tree' in Scripps Park toppled over on Thursday,” said Don Balch, who photographed the tree in its prime as well as when it fell. “It’s a sad loss for La Jollans.”
     
    While age definitely played a role in the tree’s fall, one resident wondered if the increasing popularity of the park did as well. 
     
    "The Cove Park used to be a park where nature was left undisturbed by cars, machines, and installation," said Mary Anne Brown. "Today’s economy has transformed the park into a commercial venue turning it into a parking lot for car shows, etc. Driving and heavy traffic on sacred ground with living specimens and sensitive root structure does not bode well for the life of the trees.”
     
    Graham said the sections of the tree that were removed from the park are currently being stored at a City facility. The plan is to find a way to repurpose the iconic tree’s wood, but nothing has been decided. 
     
    As for a new tree in its place, Graham said there have been discussions of planting another Monterey Cypress in that area but nothing has been finalized. 
     
    For the time being, it seems we’ll only be left to wonder if the tree at Ellen Browning Scripps Park really did inspire Dr. Seuess to write the following:
     
    "Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not. I speak for the trees, for the trees have no tongues.”

    Small business owner Danielle Wiebe is working hard to help women, in a nutshell, run the world one community at a time. “I wanted to create a safe place for women to ask questions and learn about the world of business and also network without feeling like they had to put up a front of being wildly successful,” said Wiebe, founder of Business Babes Collective. “I wanted this space to be open to all women, no matter where they were at in their business.” What started as a monthly get-together with a few business women in Wiebe’s home of Vancouver, Canada quickly became a full-fledged, global networking platform for women business owners and, soon after, made a home on the West Coast. Business Babes Collective, officially launched by Wiebe in 2015, added a chapter in San Diego in 2017 but has been on hiatus since last summer, until now. To reintroduce Business Babes to San Diego, Wiebe and new chapter leader Rachel Valenteros will hold their Summer Series Launch Party at the La Jolla Women’s Club (7791 Draper Ave.) Thursday, June 27. It will be the first event of three this summer, focusing on the topic of “Collaboration over Competition” and how business owners can work together in “mutually beneficial partnerships,” as Wiebe puts in, to grow their businesses. “It’s going to be fun to get the energy and momentum back and see everyone come together after a year,” said Valenteros, who started her own online tropical and coastal vintage shop last year. “I’ve followed their group on Instagram for a little over a year now, and I love the idea of bringing business babes together to build a community versus feeling like we are each other’s competition,” added Auriel O’Niell, Event Manager for La Jolla Woman’s Club. “On top of that, this is a Women’s Club so what better way to support other women?” Business Babes Collective also has a chapter branch in Seattle, as well as two others in the Canadian cities of Toronto and Victoria. Their focus is three-fold, centering on business education, community and making an impact on the world through women-owned businesses. While Wiebe, a social media expert, says Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn have done a great job getting women in touch and connected, in-person networking should never take a back seat. “There’s something special about meeting those women in person and being able to build a real connection,” said Wiebe, who will be a guest panelist at the upcoming event. “It’s cool to be able to have events like this that get women together who are all entrepreneurial and who have similar goals and dreams for themselves and let them know they’re not in this alone.” San Diego Business Babe’s Summer Launch Party will host two additional guest speakers, native to San Diego: Jodie Alonso, founder of The Local Bazaar, and Dianne Manansala-Ringpis, who established her own Filipino restaurant and dessert shop called SNOICE. The event, starting at 6 p.m., will also showcase local clothing and jewelry vendors, plenty of food and desserts, a cocktail hour, photo booths, Q&A sessions with panelists, raffle giveaways at the end of the night. “It’ll be like a massive business party,” said Valenteros, who hopes that Business Babes, together with The La Jolla Women's Club, can create a strong, connected network of women entrepreneurs in San Diego. “I want people to be inspired and have that spark for business. Sometimes, as a business owner, you can fall into a rut where you don’t know what your next step is. I feel that having this community, coming together for the same goals and being comfortable around each other, is a necessity.” Tickets for San Diego Business Babes’ Summer Series Launch Party are $65 and can be purchased on their website, businessbabescollective.com. The event is open to all women and lasts from 6 to 9 p.m. Locations and times for the July and August Business Babes events have yet to be finalized.

    Tails and trails – City Council approves dog-friendly option for Fiesta Island

    Option B for Fiesta Island.
    Option B for Fiesta Island.
    slideshow
    Audience members practically howled after San Diego City Council voted unanimously June 17 for the more dog-friendly of two options offered for redeveloping Fiesta Island. The Council joined four other previous governmental bodies in selecting dog friendlier Option B over Option A, which was espoused by the non-motorized boating community including kayakers and paddlers. Only the City Planning Commission chose Option A over Option B. Both options were proposed as an amendment to the Mission Bay Park Master Plan to update the land uses and vision for manmade, 470-acre, multi-use Fiesta Island. Option A would have divided the island with a road, which would have reduced access for off-leash dog users, in favor of providing storage and beach access for personal watercraft. Option B keeps the island intact and undivided, while increasing the fenced, off-leash area, which would have been bisected by a road if Option A had been chosen. City staffer Sarah Osborn told Council members both options being considered were meant to “preserve natural resources and improve both water access and road circulation.” She added both options also “formalized much of existing uses on the island.” Public testimony at the Council hearing was stacked heavily in favor of Option B advocated by the Fiesta Island Dog Owners group. Only two people testified in favor of non-motorized more boat-friendly Option A. Kathy Archibald of San Diego Outrigger Canoe Club noted members of the non-motorized boating community who “come in all shapes and sizes and from every demographic just want a place to get to the water.” Kathy Parrish of FIDO countered that Option B would benefit more island users. “Tens of thousands of people use this space free at Fiesta Island 365 days a year from dawn to dusk, rain or shine,” she said. “We don’t need more roads and fences. Don’t pave over paradise.” FIDO president Carolyn Chase read letters for Option B supporters from every City Council district. “This is the most affordable and sustainable plan for most users and most uses,” Chase concluded. Following public testimony, District 2 Councilmember Dr. Jennifer Campbell noted both options improved Fiesta Island, “especially the path and the bicycle area around the island making them safer. I’m a strong supporter of keeping Fiesta in its most natural form. I’d like to move certification of the environmental impact report, and amending the Mission Bay Master Plan to include Option B.” District 7 Councilmember Scott Sherman reiterated his stance that a non-motorized boat launch and area for personal watercraft would be a better fit at the existing South Shores Boat Launch, which he described as “incredibly underutilized.” District 8 Councilmember Vivian Moreno credited both sides for being passionate, producing photos of dogs that people favoring Option B had emailed her. “I’m the mother of one dog and I take her there to run on the sand and play in the surf and I understand why so many people go there,” she said. “I don’t see the need to destroy the experience of thousands of dogs and their families, and that’s why I’m supporting this motion.”

    Did you ever wonder what catapulted skateboarding’s popularity into the stratosphere? Does history of a “sport,” born and bred along the coast of Southern California, coincide with your love of surfing? Are you “stoked” to know that skateboarding will be featured in Tokyo for the 2020 Summer Olympics? If you’ve answered yes to any of the above questions, John O’Malley’s new book, “Urethane Revolution: The Birth of Skate-San Diego 1975,” is a must read. The always interesting, sometimes shocking, off-color page-turner dialogues the history of the skateboarding from one of its founding fathers, John O’Malley. Dubbed the “greatest story never told in extreme sports history,” O’Malley retraces his steps as a member of the original Skunkworks crew to creating his own skateparks. Photographs – sure to make everyone reminisce about the good ole’ days – accompany stories from the underground. “One crazy year on the California coast in 1975 a hippie skunkworks, bred in garages and shacks, launched the modern skater movement,” writes O’Malley. Strap in for a wild ride replete with two car chases, two plane crashes, a massive truck bomb, Colombian Narcos, the Mafia, senior White House staff, a gypsy fortuneteller, three straight-up miracles, Jacques Cousteau, big piles of cocaine and naked hippie chicks.” O’Malley details the books title, “Urethane Revolution” beginning with the history behind the urethane. “Around 1973, a guy named Frank Nasworthy discovered these urethane training wheels that were used on beginners’ roller skates,” he notes. “They were grippier than the unforgiving composite clay wheels of the day. Frank bolted them on his skateboard and bingo! Suction-cup traction like no one had ever imagined possible. It’s in that instant that the skateboard went from a toy with feet of clay to a wall-climbing UFO, screaming at warp speed to the 2020 Olympics.” The Revolution follows suit. “The Revolution began when a rift opened in the universe and that centrifugal buzz – heretofore available only through sports like surfing and skiing – came leaking out of the streets,” writes O’Malley. “Adrenaline rushing up your road, serotonin dripping down the drive. And the scales fell from our eyes: Any paved surface could be ridden. And the call went out: The rift has opened, God is great, spread the word.” According to O’Malley, a perfect storm of “ill winds” that began with a historic drought fueled the Revolution. “The drought uncovered insanely fun new skating forms like the reservoirs and drainage ditches while recession-vacant homes had their swimming pools drained and skated,” he pens. “Our eyes spoked an urban landscape lit up with a million new possibilities.” “Urethane Revolution” also showcases La Jolla native Bobby Turner. The innovative craftsman built Turner Summer/Ski slalom skateboards. Still popular today, these boards are constructed along the design vein of surfboards and snow skis. According to O’Malley, Turner’s skateboards “revolutionized” slalom skating boards. O’Malley touts, “The Revolution is over. Skaters won.” And if you need a place to play, check out Robb Field; San Diego’s first skateboard park constructed and operated by the City. Designed with input from the legendary Tony Hawk, the 40,000 square foot concrete park is suitable for all ages and skill levels. Sidling the San Diego River Bike Path at the onset of Ocean Beach, the “street course” features a combination bowl, handrails, ledges, blocks, a pump bump and an octagon volcano. Location: 2525 Bacon St.

    After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don’t believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com or call him 2348105150446

    WAVES OF BLUE – Bioluminescence glow returns along San Diego beaches

    The crimson tide is back. Not Alabama’s football team, but the bioluminescent glow from the marine phenomenon known as the red tide. “It’s intermittent and impossible to predict,” said Scripps Institution of Oceanography scientist and bioluminescence expert Michael Latz, of the recurring phenomenon. Red tides are caused by aggregations of dinoflagellates (marine plankton) including Ceratium falcatiforme and Lingulodinium polyedra. The latter is known for its bioluminescent displays, with waves or water movement causing the phytoplankton to glow neon blue at night. Pictures posted recently on social media showed the eerie neon glow. According to several San Diego photographers who captured the effect, the bioluminescent algae bloom was captured along the shores from Torrey Pines State Beach to Ocean Beach. The range of red tides also varies greatly. There was a really big one in October 2011 that extended up the entire Southern California coast from the Mexican border to Los Angeles. “It’s usually every couple years, but sometimes it happens in sequential years,” said Latz of the red tide, noting there was a massive one along the San Diego coast in 1995, with a follow-up the next year. It’s happening again, as there was a red tide in 2018, and now another one this year, both starting near the end of May. The Scripps scientist said the tide’s plankton go through developmental stages, much like the lifecycle of some insects. “The organisms that produce this tide have a dormant life state called a cyst, that can sink down into the sediment and emerge later,” Latz said. “Local red tides maybe have an internal clock, and a year later they emerge into swimming cells. On a calm sunny day, they’re (plankton) attracted to the sunlight and they swim right up to the surface. If the water is strong enough to stimulate them, they’ll  produce bioluminescence.” “It is of great scientific interest why that is occurring,” said Latz of the tidal algae blooms. “For me, the bioluminescence is really the spectacular part.” Latz added scientists have successfully grown red tide plankton. “We just grow them for our research in labs so we can study them even when they’re not abundant on the coast here,” he said. Scripps scientists continue to sample red tides when they occur to learn more about the genetic and metabolic characteristics of the organisms. The waves propagate onshore, and their circulation patterns create dense accumulations of the red-tide organisms over the troughs of the waves. As you look out over the ocean, you'll see that the red tide typically appears in stripes parallel to shores. These are the internal wave troughs. Bioluminescent displays are viewed best from a dark beach at least two hours after sunset, though visibility is not guaranteed.  What’s also mysterious is the timing and duration of red tides, which have lasted anywhere from one week to a month or more.  Latz said red tides can, but rarely do, contain a chemical neurotoxin that can be harmful to man and other mammals. “Some people who’ve gone out in the surf with them have had dizziness or asthma-like conditions,” he said. “It’s something we are interested in studying.” There has also been a pronounced seasonality to red tides. “Historically, they used to happen in early fall,” said Latz. “Then that shifted in the ’90s so that it also occurs in spring. Spring and fall are the times when it happens the most.”
