    Longtime La Jolla resident inducted into the California Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Honorees  The California Baseball Coaches Association (CBCA) names longtime local high school baseball coach, David Glassey, as one of its Hall of Honorees recipients this year. A ceremony will be held on Saturday, June 16 at 5 p.m. at the University of California, San Diego baseball stadium during the annual North South Series. For nearly 40 years, Glassey has coached high school baseball at Francis Parker School in San Diego, winning several California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) championships, as well as sending many of his players to play at the collegiate level and professionally. “I enjoy the challenge that comes with coaching and watching the players come together as a team. It has been rewarding to see them mature and become successful adults,” said Glassey. “Coaching gives me the opportunity to help them learn how to deal with failure. Baseball is a game of failure; you fail more than you succeed. I love seeing the dedication of players and seeing them learn many of life's lessons.”  Dedicated to his coaching craft, Glassey has a career record of 612 wins, one of the top five San Diego County high school baseball coaches with the most wins. He has won nine CIF championships and CIF runner up seven times throughout his career. Some of his recent players who went on to professional baseball careers include Nick Allen who was drafted by the Oakland A’s in 2017, as well as Nick Noonan and Jose Vizcaino for the San Francisco Giants, and Kyle Dowdy for the Detroit Tigers. Along with these players, many others have gone to play at the college level. With all of his success, the San Diego native will retire in 2018 as the varsity baseball coach at Francis Parker School, where the team finished 22-10 and played CIF’s Division 2 Championship. “It's been fun to see the successes my players had not only in baseball, but also in their lives and careers. I hope that in some way, I have influenced their success,” said Glassey. Here are some of what Glassey’s former students say about him: “Congrats, Coach! You deserve it. Your guidance and friendship changed lives, mine for sure. The best coach and actually the only person who will always be ‘coach’ on and off the field,” said Jeff Hiekkola. “He has made a difference in a lot of lives, including mine. I wouldn’t be who I am today,” said Ben Coughlan, a San Diego trial attorney and partner with The Gomez Firm. “What makes Coach great is the impact he’s had on the lives of so many young men and women, and the role model he has been and continues to be,” said Patrick Styles. “An honor and privilege to play for and coach with. Forever grateful,” said Greg LaBarre.  “I think all Parker players throughout the years can vouch that Coach Glassey is one of the best high school coaches in San Diego history,” said Pat McQuinn.  In addition to Glassey, Charles Hatfield of Chatsworth High School will also be inducted into CBCA’s 2018 Hall of Honorees. Other notable San Diego County honorees over the last three decades include David Gonzalez with Eastlake High School, Rob Phillips with Grossmont High School, Steve Vickery with El Capitan High School, Manny Hermosillo with Montgomery High School, and Dennis Pugh with Mission Bay High School.

The Bishop’s School appoints Ron Kim as 12th head of school The Bishop’s School board of trustees and the school’s head of school search committee recently announced the appointment of Ron Kim as Bishop’s next head of school. Following a highly competitive national search process, Kim was selected to begin his term as Bishop’s 12th head of school in summer 2019, the start of the School’s 111th year. Kim brings a wealth of experience in school leadership, student-centered pedagogy and inclusive education principles. He is currently the head of school at Basis Independent McLean (BIM), a preschool—12th grade school in McLean, Va. Prior to BIM, Mr. Kim spent 23 years at Phillips Exeter Academy in Exeter, New Hampshire, where he held various administrative and teaching roles during his distinguished career; the most recent were assistant principal, dean of faculty, history instructor and girls’ varsity basketball coach. He was the youngest dean of faculty ever appointed at Exeter. Mr. Kim grew up in Southern California and earned a bachelor’s degree in history from the University of California, Berkeley, and a master’s degree in history from the University of Chicago.  Chair of the Bishop’s head of school search committee Barbara Edwards says, “Kim’s passion for education guided by values, ethics and inclusive principles, and the impact that arts and athletics can have on students at a formative point in their lives speak directly to the mission of The Bishop’s School.”  “Students will be successful in the future, in part because of their academic achievements and intellectual resources, but also because of their ability to collaborate, to connect with people who are different from themselves and to be devoted to the well-being of others,” Kim said. “The most meaningful educational experience provides students with the opportunity in class, on the fields or on a stage to succeed, fail, bounce back and know that, as a supportive community, we will go farther together than we would alone.”  Bishop’s board president Annette Bradbury adds, “Kim’s warmth and ease were apparent from the moment he set foot on campus, and his authenticity and humor resonated with administrators, alumni, faculty, staff, parents, students and trustees.” As was announced in November 2017, current Bishop’s head of middle school Carol Barry will serve as interim head of school for the 2018-2019 school year, and Mr. Kim will join Bishop’s in summer 2019. Barnard Elementary hosts first ‘International Food and Culture Night’ Barnard Mandarin Magnet Elementary School held its first “International Night” on June 1, which filled the school’s auditorium with students and their families eager to taste culinary delights from more than twenty countries, including Poland, England, Greece, Germany, Mexico, Philippines, Russia, Ireland, and, of course, China. There were also cultural performances on the stage. Highlights included Russian and Flamenco dancing, tae kwon do, and a folk song about the Hebrew alphabet. Many attendees wore their family’s national dress. For some, this meant wearing clothing that showcased more than one culture, hinting at the diversity found within the families themselves. “People may assume that our school’s culture is predominantly Chinese because of the nature of our immersion program,” said parent Love Zubiller. “But it’s not. Barnard is a school with so much diversity. Our ‘International Night’ is one way that we can showcase and celebrate the many cultures and rich diversity of our amazing community.” While attendees had their fill of kimchee, arroz con leche, and matzoh ball soup, it only left them hungry for more. Planning for next year’s “International Night” has begun, and the excitement –and aroma of Russian pryaniki gingerbread—is already filling the air.

'Echoing Light,' Astrid Preston works at new R.B. Stevenson Gallery locale The R.B. Stevenson Gallery recently announced the exhibition "Echoing Light" by Los Angeles artist Astrid Preston at their new main level space at 7661 Girard Ave. The opening reception for the Artist will be held on Saturday, June 16 from 5 to 8 pm. This exhibition is the second solo presentation of Preston's work at R.B. Stevenson Gallery. An illustrated catalog will accompany the show with an essay by Robert L. Pincus. "These paintings – and their titles – coax us into paying attention – not only to the paintings, which richly reward such scrutiny, but also to the details of the world at large," Pincus writes. "Preston assembles the elements of her paintings into a poetic whole; the image is permeated by a perception of how beauty, physical and perhaps metaphysical, which manifests itself in gardens, assumes an even more inspiring form in Preston’s new paintings." INFO: Where: 7661 Girard Ave. When: Tuesday through Saturday 10:30 a.m. to 5:00 pm. Contact: 858-459-3917 www.rbstevensongallery.com.

The eight-team, eight-day, double-elimination tournament is being co-hosted by the University of Mount Olive and the Town of Cary, North Carolina, back in Cary after a one-year move last season to Grand Prairie, Texas. Third-seeded UC San Diego ended another tremendous campaign as repeat West Region champion, at 43-17 overall. Fourth-seeded Southern New Hampshire, the East Region champion out of Manchester, N.H., improved to 41-16. The Penmen face elimination again on Thursday, May 31, against fifth-seeded Augustana. UC San Diego trailed 7-0 after the first three frames, but scored in three straight innings from the fifth through the seventh, to make a game of it again. All the while, senior closer Cameron Kurz (Encinitas/La Costa Canyon HS) kept the Tritons in contention with a career-long 4.2 shutout innings of relief. He faced the minimum 14 batters over that stretch, with no hits or walks allowed, and six strikeouts. The Tritons went down in order in their opening half for the second straight night, before Tom Blandini golfed a leadoff home run for the Penmen, his second on the year and the first to right field of the tournament. Junior first baseman Tyler Durna got over and dove to his right to corral Dakota Mulcay's ground ball, got up and flipped to starting pitcher Jack Rupe, Jr. (San Marcos/Mission Hills HS), for the third out. Durna doubled through the right side with one gone in the second, but like Tuesday night, UC San Diego could not get him around, a strikeout and fly out ending the frame. Back-to-back one-out singles had the Penmen threatening for more in their second, and a three-run blast down the left field line by junior shortstop Kyle Pangallo, also his second of the year, made it a 4-0 deficit early.  La Jolla Veterinary Hospital to host 5th annual ‘Paws & Pints La Jolla’ fundraiser  At 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 7, The Lot will host the fifth annual “Paws & Pints La Jolla” fundraisers. All of the event’s proceeds go to The Rancho Coastal Humane Society and The FACE Foundation. “This event is in our community, for the community, and it has evolved into something La Jolla looks forward to year after year,” said event founder Stephanie Coolidge of La Jolla Veterinary Hospital. The fundraiser features a live auction, silent auction and raffle with items such as VIP Padres tickets, surfboards, art from local La Jolla artists, countless La Jolla restaurant, and hotel, winery, museum and brewery packages. Local La Jolla merchants donate jewelry, museum pieces, high-end apparel and gift card packages second to none. There will be a  "Wine Grab" featured at the event and a photo contest for you and your four-legged friend on the red carpet. The Rancho Coastal Humane Society is responsible for finding homes for thousands of animals all around San Diego County. The FACE Foundation is a non-profit that provides financial assistance for San Diego animal owners who are unable to afford the cost of their pet’s life-saving emergency veterinary care. F.O.C.A.S. stands for “Friends of County Animal Shelters” and was started in La Jolla by La Jolla residents Peggy Howell and Sue Geller in 1982. The program is now managed by Rancho Coastal Humane Society. Join La Jolla Veterinary Hospital in making a huge impact on the animal-welfare community right here in the Village.

    Magical mermaid lures visitors to Sunset Cliffs; How did this nymph come to grace Ross Rock?

    Every now and then our perceptions of reality are tested, and the mythical world becomes actualized. Each time this happens, the little child within us breaks free from adult confinements, and we begin to see the world differently. This is the exact phenomenon going on right now in Point Loma with the emergence of a mermaid. We are calling her Mishell, meaning “God-like,” for her beauty and mystical powers have navigated people to her throne atop Ross Rock off the coast of Sunset Cliffs since Memorial Day weekend. Is it coincidence that May gray vanished at the mere glance of her green tail and flowing locks? We think not. Maybe it is her siren songs soothing the souls of visitors, or her awe-inspiring capacity to bring consistently firing waves, but the vibe around the cliffs have been both peaceful and joyous. “I think [she] is a piece of art. [She] definitely fits the OB vibe. I just want to know how [she] got up there,” said Greg Clinnin, a Pacific Beach resident. Visitors fear for her future. Mark Eimer, a San Diego resident, said, “I think the city will eventually take it down, but they should leave it up for a little to let people enjoy [her].” “It’s great for tourism and [she] is art. We have lived here for 32 years and have never been to the cliffs, but talk of this mermaid drew us in,” Randy Sundberg said. “To people who want to take [her] down or feel this is vandalism, I say live a little.” The Peninsula Beacon was able to confirm with park rangers that there are no plans to take Mishell down, and we couldn’t be more relieved. While mermaids are known for their beauty and enchantment, it comes in the form of vanity, and any test at their ego is detrimental to both people and their environment. Among many powers, mermaids can manipulate both the ocean and weather to either our benefit or detriment. Urban legend tells the terrifying tales of entire ships lost at sea to the goddesses. They also possess telepathy with marine life, giving them a plethora of back-up if needed. One shouldn’t worry too much though, as the true nature of mermaids are both loving and curious. While we don’t know the exact reason for Mishell’s sudden appearance, she may be attempting to learn about us as much as we are understanding her. “I think this is a political statement,” said Roger Warren, of Point Loma. “Is it just a coincidence that Starbucks, whose mascot is a green mermaid, is having racial sensitivity training the same day [she] goes up? I don’t think so.” We do not think that Mishell has any political affiliations or influence, but she may be trying to transcend our psyches. “I wouldn’t call it art. I wouldn’t call it vandalism. I think that someone was just trying to bring some joy to the world,” Lucie Leonard said, a Point Loma local of 15 years. Leonard was lucky enough to spot Mishell scaling the side of the 50-foot rock with assistance from her “servants” around 4:45 p.m. on Memorial Day. She said one of the men must have free-climbed the side and dropped a rope ladder for her highness to reach her seat. Leonard snapped three photos of this remarkable conclave. Mishell isn’t the first to perch aloft the notorious rock. In 2010, the numbers “2010” stood proud. Before that, in 2006, a peace sign was put up, only to be stolen and returned to the roof of the OB Hostel on Newport Avenue. Other royalty to grace the top of the formation includes a pterodactyl, an Easter Island head replica, a Christmas tree, and a toilet with a Raiders fan wedged inside. Whoever was brave enough to assist Mishell on her conquest remains unknown, and their identities are as mysterious as she is magical. Rumors continue to spread including the idea that a group of tourists from Arizona not only helped Mishell, but the others as well, but the Peninsula Beacon was not able to confirm. Other thoughts include those similar to Gary Wasserman’s, who said on the Point Loma Connections Facebook page, “It is like a secret artist or society of artful people that have installed these sculptures both very large and small on top of this rock over many years, that is otherwise unclimbable.” However Mishell got there, she remains, to kick off the summer and bring us closer to her home she holds so dearly, the ocean. With the potential of her departure any day at any time, take some time out of your day to witness her in all her glory. Mermaid mythology - The mermaid is one of the most popular figures in world folklore. Her characteristic appearance is as a nubile young girl, with long hair and a fish tail. Unlike the other part-human, part-animal creatures of folklore, mermaids have been the object of many sightings up to the present day. - The most famous mermaid to have been captured, the “mermaid of Amboina,” was found off the coast of Borneo in 1754 and is said to have lived in captivity for four days. She refused to eat, and made plaintive sounds like those of a mouse. - Where do the myths of mermaids come from? Somewhere in the later Middle Ages, the fish-woman mermaid supplanted the bird-woman siren as the creature believed to lure sailors astray, although in many languages words based on “siren” continued to be used for the fish-woman. source: encyclopedia.com

    City Council votes against boardwalk ban for motorized scooters

    Shock, anger and relief for some was the local reaction to the City Council’s 6-3 vote May 22 against an emergency ordinance prohibiting motorized scooters on coastal boardwalks. District 2 Councilmember Lorie Zapf, who proposed the ordinance, was joined by District 1 Councilmember Barbara Bry and District 5 Councilmember Mark Kersey in supporting a scooter boardwalk ban.  Council members Chris Ward, Myrtle Cole, Scott Sherman, Chris Cate, David Alvarez and Georgette Gomez all turned thumbs down on the proposal. They argued either that they weren’t convinced of its necessity, or they felt the issue hadn’t yet been properly vetted. Sherman from District 7 said the problem was more about irresponsible people riding, than about the vehicles being ridden. “I am disappointed that my colleagues failed to realize the tremendous public safety problem electric scooters present on the boardwalk,” said Zapf. “I intend to continue working with the police department, the lifeguard service and community leaders to refine the proposal so that it can gather majority support on the council.” “We won’t be weighing in on the topic,” said San Diego Fire-Rescue spokesperson Monica Munoz. “We enforce the muni codes and other laws when they are enacted.” Asked if the boardwalk is considered a sidewalk, San Diego Police Department spokesperson Lt. Brent Williams, answered: “Some parts are sidewalks and already prohibited. Some parts are a Class 1 bike way. That’s what the item at City Council was about.” Of helmets, Williams said: “They are required for any rider who uses a scooter, age is not a factor. It is enforced and a number of citations have been written for this specific violation citywide.” Concerning enforcement of the 8 mph speed limit on the boardwalk, Williams said: “Scooters do go faster than 8 mph, and 8 mph is the posted limit. Enforcement of this is also done on the boardwalk, and will continue to be enforced by SDPD.” There was considerable agreement from Zapf’s constituency in Mission and Pacific beaches and Mission Bay, that motorized scooters on the boardwalk are a safety threat that needs to be addressed. “I was disgusted,” said Scott Chipman, a 43-year PB resident. “The presentation on safety issues could not have been more convincing showing case after case of dangerous conditions on the boardwalk … Multiple videos of scooter crashes causing injuries were shown. The two City Council members who have beach boardwalks in their districts pleadings were ignored. The recommendations of police and life guard chief were ignored.” Concurred Marcie Beckett, of PB, “Shame on City Council. The bay walk used to be a safe place for families to bring their little kids to ride bikes or roller skate. But not anymore due to the advent of motorized scooters zooming along without the skill or time to react to the unpredictable little ones. The City gets no revenue from the motorized scooter rentals, not even sales tax, but the taxpayers are on the hook for the cost of police enforcement, emergency response and negligence lawsuits from people who will be injured due to the reckless decision made today by City Council.” Citing numerous complaints from his staff and hotel guests, Bill Allen, Crystal Pier Hotel chairman, said: “They are left daily in our hotel driveway locked, blocking our gate access. Guests as well as those walking along the boardwalk now have to dodge riders of these in congested times… The council members who voted against this proposed ban do not represent any coastal areas and, most likely, have not walked on the boardwalk lately.” A counter perspective was offered by Circulate San Diego, a regional nonprofit promoting public and non-motorized travel. “Since the introduction of dockless bike and scooter share earlier this year, San Diegans have begun to use active transportation more than ever before,” said Maya Rosas, the group’s policy director. “Circulate San Diego supports the use of dockless bike and scooter share as a form of transportation and spoke at City Council in opposition to the proposed ban. San Diego has embraced this innovative and green technology. A vote to ban scooters in our iconic boardwalks would have been a step in the wrong direction on the City’s road to get more people walking, biking, scooting, and taking transit.” Said longtime PB community Planner Chris Olson: “Our leaders should support and promote alternative methods of transportation and find safe and effective methods to employ them. This emergency ordinance is a knee-jerk reaction to an important public safety issue, and it is the wrong approach. Yes, some people recklessly speed on scooters, skateboards, bikes, etc. But a blanket ban of motorized scooters on one section of the boardwalk is not a rational solution.” Added Olson: “This ordinance targets a method of transportation rather than the true issue, which is speed. Will they ban electric bikes next? Every time I see people on these scooters they exude gleeful revelation. Don’t take that away.”
