Malibu City council

Lou La Monte tagged as next Malibu mayor

Skylar Peak named

as mayor pro tem

Alex Vejar, Assistant Editor

The Malibu City Council

unanimously elected Lou

La Monte to the office of

mayor on Monday, July 11,

beginning his second goaround

at the position. La

Monte previously served as

mayor of Malibu from August

2012 to June 2013.

“I wanted to thank my

collegues for their continued

faith in me for a second

time as mayor. I appreciate

it,” La Monte said. “I also

want to thank Laura Rosenthal

for all the work she has

done during her term. As

usual, you are a very hard

act to follow.”

La Monte read a list of

the priorities he has for the

city’s residents during his

time as mayor. One of the

projects he mentioned was

the Bluffs Parkland.

“I will ... work to get the

ballfields and other amenitites

in Bluffs Park that we

want and that we need,” La

Monte said. “We are now

poison-free, but we are also

available-field-space-free.

We need these fields and

we need to work with the

[California] Coastal Commission

to make sure that

all the stakeholders that are

involved in this have a full

and open hearing, and ultimately

we can play ball ball

on those fields.”

La Monte also said he

wishes to make Pacific

Coast Highway safer.

“We have had an unacceptable

amount of accidents

lately,” La Monte

said. “Even one fatality is

unacceptable.”

La Monte added that he

wants to see more law enforcement

on PCH.

Monday marked the last

day as mayor for Laura

Rosenthal, who was elected

for the second time in 2015

and previously held the position

in 2012-13.

In the final month of

Rosenthal’s tenure, the City

banned pesticide use in all

of Malibu and it also broke

ground a wastewater treatment

facility in the Civic

Center area.

La Monte presented

Rosenthal with an award on

behalf of the entire council.

The council also unanimously

named councilman

Skylar Peak as Mayor Pro

Tem; however, Peak was

not present at the meeting.

“Generally when you’re

not here, it’s always good

to give you a job,” La Monte

said jokingly.

Several speakers congratulated

La Monte on

the position and thanked

Rosenthal for her service

during their remarks regarding

other council business.

The office of mayor in

the City of Malibu is elected

every 9.6 months, said

Round it up

A brief recap of City Council action July 11

• Council members OK’d edits that expand

regulations, including requiring a homeowner’s

signature and the notifying neighbors in advance, to

the City’s special events permit ordinance.

• A second reading was approved for an amended

ordinance requiring valets to wear safety vests when

working on public right-of-ways.

• An agreement between the City and SMMUSD was

extended for three years. The partnership allows the

City to use district facilities for recreation programs

at a cost of $239,824 for the next year, which is

about $60,000 higher than the previous rate.

Matt Myerhoff, the City’s

media information officer.

The term length was chosen

so that every councilmember

could have a turn

as mayor for the City, Myerhoff

said.

The change from a

one-year mayor term to a

9.6-month term was made

at a council meeting in

April 2008, Myerhoff said.

City’s pesticide ban was long time coming

Suzanne Guldimann

Freelance Reporter

The Malibu City Council’s

June 27 decision to eliminate

the use of all pesticides on City

property is being called a reaffirmation

of the community’s

commitment to the environment;

however, while the issue has received

unanimous support from

the community and City officials,

arriving at a point where

poison-free municipal parks and

City Hall are a reality has been a

long and complex process.

Kian Schulman, the activist

who has pressed for the change

and is the co-founder of Poison

Free Malibu, recalls the evolution

of the process from her original

commitment to eliminating

wildlife-harming rodenticides to

a complete ban on pesticides on

all City-owned property, including

City Hall and the community’s

five parks.

In October 2012, the death

of an otherwise healthy young

mountain lion in the Malibu area

was linked to anti-coagulant rodenticides.

The news rocked the

environmental community. An

ongoing National Park Service

research project had already

shown the link between rodenticides

and increased mortality

in the mountain lion, bobcat and

coyote populations of the Santa

Monica Mountains, but the dead

cat was a wake-up call for many,

moving the issue to the spotlight.

Schulman began a one-woman

campaign to eliminate this class

of pesticides from Malibu, visiting

merchants and asking them

to stop selling and using the

products.

“There was no Poison Free

Malibu then,” Schulman told the

Malibu Surfside News. “I was

working under the umbrella of

June Louk’s Malibu Agricultural

Society, that’s how I got to know

Wendi Werner Dunn and Linda

Gibbs.”

“We have finally taken the next step to

ensure that everyone and everything,

be it people or animals or birds, can be

confident that they are visiting healthy

and safe parks and City-owned areas.”

Laura Rosenthal — outgoing Malibu mayor

The trio of activists began

working to raise awareness of

the devastating impact of rodenticides

on local wildlife.

In 2013, Schulman arranged

for Malibu City Council members

Lou La Monte and John Sibert

to meet with NPS ecologist

Seth Riley and California Wildlife

Center veterinarian Duane

Tom to discuss banning the rodenticides

in Malibu.

Later that year, the Malibu City

Council unanimously passed a

resolution encouraging Malibu

residents and businesses to use

safe alternatives to rodenticides,

and pledged to develop wildlifefriendly

pest management policies

for City property, but stopped

short of passing a ban.

The Malibu resolution was followed

by similar action in nine

neighboring communities. Poison

Free Malibu continued to

push for changes, meeting with

Malibu City staff to develop an

Integrated Pest Management

Plan in an effort to reduce the

City’s use of all types of pesticides.

“It was a standard IPM,”

Schulman said. “It didn’t eliminate

poisons. What I envisioned

was a truly earth-friendly management

policy.”

In 2014, the California Coastal

Commission approved a local

coastal plan for the unincorporated

portion of the Santa Monica

Mountains located within Los

Angeles County that included a

ban not only on rodenticides but

on all pesticides with the potential

to negatively impact the environment.

Poison Free Malibu

began campaigning for the City

to amend its LCP to include the

same restrictions throughout the

community.

The item was brought to the

City Council by council member

Skylar Peak, who was mayor

at the time, in October 2014,

and was unanimously approved

on Dec. 8 of that year, but the

amendment was placed on hold

while the Malibu city attorney

seeks input from the California

District Attorney.

That didn’t stop the local activists

from seeking ways to limit

pesticide exposure in the city. A

photograph of a child on a bicycle

in Legacy Park feet from

a city worker in protective clothing

spraying herbicide launched

a new wave of community activism.

The City’s IPM was reviewed

by the Parks and Recreation

Commission in May. The panel

recommended a pilot program

to eliminate pesticides at Legacy

Park, Las Flores Canyon Park

and the Malibu Equestrian Center,

but recommended the continued

use of four herbicides

at Bluffs and Trancas Canyon

parks.

“People kept knocking on the

door,” Schulman said, “people

who were sick of poisons.”

Activists highlighted Roundup

to end pesticide use in Malibu.

and SpeedZone, two products

routinely used on City property,

for their potential negative impact

on human health and the

environment. They stressed that

glyphosate, the main active ingredient

in Roundup, is increasingly

implicated as a carcinogen.

Concerned citizens packed

the auditorium at Malibu City

Hall on June 27. After hours of

testimony—the hearing ended

after midnight—the Malibu City

Council unanimously recommended

eliminating all pesticides

on city property.

“It’s a public nuisance to use

these things,” Peak said, as he

made the motion to approve the

new policy.

Peak wore a handmade teeshirt

with the message “Poison

Parks Kill,” a sentiment shared

by one hundred percent of the

speakers, and the entire City

Council. “Would you use this in

your backyard, if you knew the

effects?” he said.

Schulman was delighted

with the outcome. “It took another

three years to get here,

but what our City Council did

is tremendous,” Schulman told

The Surfside News. “They were

so strong. They stood up to the

pesticide companies and said we

don’t want our children to be experimented

on. They were superheroes.”

The recommendation passed

by the City Council only applies

to City property. City staff will

bring an Earth Friendly Management

Policy back to the council

for final approval at a future meeting.

The cost of the new program

has not yet been determined.

At the council meeting, Council

member Lou LaMonte pointed

out that the estimates provided

in the staff report were submitted

by the current contractor, who

does not specialize in organic

gardening. City Manager Reva

Feldman stated that she would

obtain quotes from organic landscaping

experts and indicated

that she was optimistic that cost

would be reasonable.

“We have finally taken the

next step to ensure that everyone

and everything, be it people or

animals or birds, can be confident

that they are visiting healthy

and safe parks and City-owned

areas,” Malibu Mayor Laura

Rosenthal told The Surfside

News. “I am proud that our City

has stepped up and taken the lead

on this very important environmental

and health issue. I look

forward to more in the future.”

MALIBU

Joe Coughlin

Managing Editor

They’re calling it a popup

store, but the motherdaughter

ownership team

behind 98% Angel hopes

for more than that.

Kathie and Zoe Shapiro

have brought back their

children’s clothing store to

Malibu, opening a storefront

in Trancas Country

Market just north of Vintage

Grocers.

The boutique shop was

a fixture in Malibu Country

Mart for more than 20

years before closing the

physical doors to go onlineonly

in February 2015. But

now, the popular store has

returned, just on a different

side of town.

“It’s nice. Everyone

seems really happy to have

us back,” said Zoe during

the shop’s grand opening

celebration Saturday, July

9. “They’ve popped their

heads in, said they missed

us. That feels good. It’s a

good feeling to be back.”

To mark the occasion,

Zoe and Kathie welcomed

a balloon artist and featured

a children’s coloring

contest, snacks and refreshments,

and a pair of raffle

giveaways (gift cards to

98% Angel and Vintage,

respectively) for the fourhour

event.

Smiling children and

their parents enjoyed the

open spaces of the new

store, which isn’t just a redo

of the previous version.

Now, 98% Angel focuses

almost exclusively on its

own clothing label, which

Zoe described as everyday

clothing for children that

can be worn comfortably

to the beach, the park and

dinner.

While there will be guest

designers featured, currently

apparel from Le Tout Petits

is available, the Shapiros

have decided to stick to

what they know firsthand.

“We used to carry a lot

of brands. It was hard to

control the quality,” Kathie

said. “Basically, this is a

98% Angel store. ... When

we sell our own line, we

can control our quality and

where we manufacture (in

Los Angeles). We know

what’s in the fabrics.

“Our goal is to be modestly

priced but very high

quality.”

The duo is proud to once

again have a physical presence

in Malibu. Opening

on an opposite end of town

only adds to the challenge

and joy of the new store.

Zoe looks forward to

Police reports

Woman suspects three would-be

car buyers to be credit card thieves

On June 17 at a Malibu

residence on Pacific Coast

Highway, a woman invited

two men and one woman

into her home because

they were inquiring about a

truck she had for sale. The

woman left the three people

in her office for a few minutes,

then returned to tell

them the sale could not be

Later that day, the woman

went to the veterinary

clinic to pick up her dog

when she noticed she had

none of her credit cards. At

the time, she thought nothing

of it.

a phone call from a

credit card company about

jewelry purchases made

in the prior two days. The

woman did not authorize

those purchases, according

Two litters of mountain lion

kittens born in local mountains

Submitted by the National

Parks Service

National Park Service researchers

recently discovered

two litters of mountain

lion kittens in the eastern

Santa Susana Mountains,

just outside Malibu. A total

of five kittens, three females

and two males, were

eartagged and returned to

their respective dens earlier

this month.

The Santa Susanas are a

large mountain range that

provides a critical habitat

connection between the

Santa Monica Mountains

to the south and Los Padres

National Forest to the north.

“Despite the challenges

mountain lions in this area

face, the animals we’ve

studied appear to be reproducing

successfully,” said

Jeff Sikich, a biologist with

Santa Monica Mountains

National Recreation Area,

which covers Malibu. “The

real challenge comes as

these kittens grow older

and disperse, especially

the males, and have to deal

with threats from other

mountain lions and also

road mortality and the possibility

of poisoning from

anticoagulant rodenticide.”

AMPS seeks fundraising help

Staff Report

The Advocates for Malibu

Public Schools is calling

all hands on deck to help

raise funds toward creating

an independent Malibu

school district.

The organization’s

board of directors has

asked the Malibu community

in a mass email to help

gather about $200,000 to

pay for the Malibu Unification

Negotiation Committee’s

two independent

consultants to conduct

studies examining the financial

and legal details

involved in separating

the Santa Monica-Malibu

Unified School District.

AMPS announced in its

email that anyone’s matching

gift will allow it to pay

for all the tasks of the consultants.

AMPS wrote in its email

that it encourages donors

to give in the next 30 days

starting Wednesday, July 6.

“We ask every community

member to give or

pledge whatever you can today,”

the AMPS announcement

read. “Obviously, we

will need several to pledge

$10,000 or $25,000. We will

need many to give $1,000,

$2,500, or $5,000. But most

of all, we need everyone to

contribute something.”

AMPS also wrote that

the organization is currently

one-third of the way to

its fundraising goal.

SMC ballot item involves

Malibu programming

Submitted by Santa Monica

College

The Santa Monica College

Board of Trustees voted

unanimously to approve

a resolution to place a $345

million improvement measure

on the November ballot

during a recent meeting.

The measure includes

three joint-use projects, including

one with the City

of Malibu to fund instructional

enhancements to

SMC’s program in Malibu

and another with the Santa

Monica-Malibu Unified

School District to replace

the defunct John Adams

Middle School auditorium.

The Santa Monica City

Council unanimously endorsed

SMC’s proposed

bond measure at its June 28

meeting.

The measure would address

the college’s critical

facility needs to serve the

students of its communities

at its current capacity. Most

prominently, it will allow

SMC to upgrade two classroom

buildings on the main

campus built in the 1950s.

According to SMC enrollment

data, 27,000 Santa

Monica and Malibu residents

— an unduplicated

count — have taken classes

at SMC over the past decade,

each enrolling for an

average of five semesters.

From the Assistant EdiTor

Thank you, Mayor Rosenthal

Alex vejar

alex@malibusurfsidenews.com

The tenure as

Malibu’s mayor

came to an end

for Laura Rosenthal at

Monday’s City Council.

And as a person who has

worked quite closely with

her for the past four or five

months, I’d like to extend

my thanks to Rosenthal for

the job she has done not

only with me as a member

of the media, but also as a

public official for the City

of Malibu.

It must be hard being

mayor. Constant community

events and involvement,

working as the

face and voice of the City

Council, sitting on various

committees and having to

deal with annoying reporters

who tell bad jokes and

“um, so” their way through

every question has got to

be tiresome. If someone

offered me a position like

that, I’d sprint in the opposite

direction.

But Rosenthal was at

many events I covered,

and she was always gracious

and stayed to chat

for a few minutes even if

I didn’t stick my recorder

in her face. She seemed

connected with the Malibu

residents she encountered,

and that’s no surprise

seeing as how she’s lived

in the community for

decades.

So mayor, I want to

say thank you for all the

interviews, long and short,

important or routine. Thank

you for the little jokes you

make toward me during

meetings of the Malibu

Unification Negotiations

Committee (no, I never used

any of those in a story).

Thank you for the small

nuggets of information

you’d give me periodically

that helped me get a lead

on a story or topic. Thank

you for being the only government

official, on any

level, with which I had an

inside joke. And, of course,

Letters to the editor

Gratitude for Grant

On behalf of the Malibu

Task Force on Homelessness,

we heartily thank our

mayor and [City] Council

for approving the grant request

made by our partner,

OPCC, a highly respected

social service agency with

over 50 years of experience

and success.

This much-appreciated

$38,000 grant from the

City of Malibu, combined

with generous gifts from

other major donors, will

enable OPCC to provide,

for one year, two full-time

outreach workers to engage

with homeless individuals

in Malibu, and link them

with OPCC’s comprehensive,

integrated system of

care. OPCC will focus on

helping homeless individuals

find permanent housing,

while also connecting our

most vulnerable neighbors

with needed services in areas

such as mental health,

substance addiction, physical

health, and more.

The crisis of homelessness

is growing, and our

small town is not immune.

Based on its 2016 Greater

Los Angeles Homeless

Count, the Los Angeles

Homeless Services Authority

estimated that there are

46,874 individuals experiencing

homelessness in Los

Angeles County. Homeless

individuals who were “unsheltered”

in this year’s

count numbered 34,701,

an 11.8 percent increase

over last year. Locally,

LAHSA’s 2016 estimate of

Malibu’s homeless population

was 161 individuals,

all of whom were classified

as “unsheltered.”

Although the efforts of

OPCC and the Malibu Task

Force on Homelessness will

not eliminate homelessness

in our community, we are

hopeful that this initiative,

coupled with a townwide

emphasis on public safety,

will produce meaningful

results by reducing the

number of people living on

our streets, beaches, and

hillsides.

The threats to safety that

Malibu’s homeless men

and women face every

day are numerous, but the

risks to safety are not theirs

alone. The safety of everyone

in Malibu is at risk

when a shivering homeless

individual lights a fire in a

canyon encampment, when

a person without needed

medication becomes aggressive,

when someone

without access to addiction

treatment gets behind the

wheel on the PCH.

We applaud the City’s

recognition of the importance

of addressing these

risks, while at the same

time working to help our

homeless neighbors find

housing and needed services.

We hope that once

thank you for putting up

with me in general.

And last — but certainly

not least — thank you

for putting in your time

to serve Malibu. It’s a

task too many people are

either too scared, apathetic

or busy to take on. Our

government, especially at

the local level, relies on

community members like

Rosenthal and the rest of

the board who decide to

give up some of their free

time to work for the community.

It’s often a thankless

job. More often than

not, in fact, it’s one only

recognized amid negative

circumstance.

And even though I know

Rosenthal isn’t going

anywhere — she’ll at least

still be part of the negotiations

meetings that I attend

weekly — I felt it appropriate

to publicly show

appreciation for the only

mayor I’ve worked with

significantly as she leaves

the post behind.

Relationships in journalism

are important, especially

when a reporter has

to work with officials on

a regular basis. And some

officials can give reporters

a hard time, deny them access

and decline interviews.

But Rosenthal never did

any of those things, which

made my job easier. So for

that, I’m very grateful.

Thank you, mayor. See

you at the negotiating

table, and probably everywhere

else.

And for the last time:

No, I’m not following you.

OPCC services begin this

summer, this initiative will

demonstrate its worth, and

that the City will consider

funding this program in the

future as part of its annual

budget for public safety.

Over the coming year,

the Malibu Task Force on

Homelessness will keep

City officials and residents

updated on the results of

OPCC’s work in Malibu.

For now, we again express

our heartfelt thanks to the

Mayor and Council for the

City’s generous support of

our efforts.

THE MALIBU REAL ESTATE REPORT

An index of the highest sales in Malibu

Rick Wallace

Contributing Columnist

Malibu resident

The highly rumored

sale of the Playboy

Mansion in Holmby

Hills provides great fodder

about past mammoth home

sales in the Southland.

That same iconic residence

that first broke the $1 million

threshold in 1971 may

now be the first residence

that cracks the illustrious

$100 million level in the

Los Angeles area.

The record sale for a

residence in Malibu is

about $75 million for a

massive bluff estate across

from Decker Canyon in the

Encinal Bluffs area.

Innovative Medicine- Compassionate Care

Just as the Playboy Mansion

is breaking a record

for a second time, Malibu’s

record-setter has surpassed

its own summit more than

once. The adjacent chart

shows the highest sales for

a variety of time periods

since year 2000, for the

most expensive beaches

and neighborhoods in

Malibu. The Encinal Bluffs

estate was also the first ever

to top $30 million, in 2001.

This year has been particularly

lean of huge sales,

and the industry is feeling

it. No home has sold for

more than $20 million as

of this writing. In fact, at

the mid-year, no sale in any

neighborhood has topped

last year’s best, despite a

very healthy year of price

appreciation otherwise.

Nevertheless, the gradual

progression of increasingly

higher sale prices is evident

in the chart.

The heyday of Malibu

real estate is still 2006-

2010, the middle of which

saw Malibu’s highest

median price (at $3,325,000

in 2008). More neighborhoods

on the chart hit their

peak during those years

than any other time period

listed. Certainly, since

2005, every place in Malibu

has seen a new peak.

Most of the mammoth

sales occur at the beach, of

course, and particularly at

large multi-acre estates on

the bluffs, particularly at

Paradise Cove and Encinal

Bluffs. Such spots enjoy

nice beaches below large flat

properties on the bluff, often

with multiple living structures

behind walled property

boundaries. All Malibu

sales over $40 million have

been in those two locations.

The only time a property has

sold off a beach-adjacent

location for more than $30

million was the huge visible

estate directly overlooking

Don’t Panic, It’s Organic

Invisible Gardener comments on another GMO research study

Andy Lopez

Contributing Columnist

Invisible Gardener

Here we go again.

The following

my response on

a recent article published

in the Los Angeles Times

on Thursday, July 7, titled

“Bad GMO Policy.”

The article reports on a

study done by the National

Academies of Sciences,

Engineering and Medicine,

which concluded that genetically

modified organisms

are just as safe, if not

safer, than the non-GMO

versions.

This time, I was able to

find the study and read it

several times. The study

starts off by saying that

GMOs have been studied

and tested and found to be

safe for decades. Then the

study goes on to talk about

Roundup-ready foods and

how safe Roundup is and

how GMO foods are better

for farmers than organic

systems.

Let me just say that I

like the study and the time

and energy taken into this

body of work. However, I

do not see how they were

able to conclude that

GMOs are safe for humans

and animals. They reasoned

that no animals have

gotten sick from eating it,

and no humans have gotten

sick either, so it must be

safe. GMOs are safe for

the environment. Their

studies prove that farmers

using GMOs have fewer

pests and diseases on their

farms.

While the study does

not say that conventionally

grown and organically

grown have the same nutritional

values, they certainly

imply that. They conclude

that the general public is

incorrect in their fears and

assumptions about GMOs

and they should let scientists

and farmers take care

of business.

Frankly, I do not see

anywhere in the study how

they actually studied if genetically

engineered foods

were actually damaging human

or animal genes over

time. They never say how

long the study was. They do

not give us the facts of this

particular study on humans

and animals.

The main problem this

article has is the fact that

businesses that produce

and sell GE food do not

want it labeled as such and

are confident that the general

public would then not

buy it. I know that I would

not buy any food that is

made from GE food.

I agree that having a

warning label means danger

and beware, and why

label it if it is safe? Well, it

has not been proven to me

to be safe, just like DDT

was called safe for many

years until it was not.

The study also states

there are no instances of

GE overflow from conventional

to organic farms,

which is also incorrect.

There are many studies

which show just the opposite

is occurring.

Altogether, I understand

why the general public is

leery of these studies, especially

if they come from

well-established organizations

such as the ASEM.

Also — and this is

important — scientists and

the general public are on

two different pages when it

comes to their understanding

of GMOs and GEs in

particular.

Genetics is a slow process

and this introuction

to our food stream may

not show up immediately,

but can and do have the

potential to show up later

and then to do extensive

damage.

GE food needs studying

over many decades under

strict conditions, and this is

not possible without violating

someone’s rights to

know what they are eating.

I think it is wrong to let

the general public become

guiniea pigs in this.

I believe that the government

should pass laws to

govern these products and

to protect living beings

and the environment from

companies who only goal

is to sell more chemicals

to a confused public. The

government should instead

use this technology to

develop safe systems not

based on financial gains,

but world gain — one that

benefits the whole instead

of the small part.

Another problem with

GE foods is that it violates

the rights of organic farmers

and their 100 percent

organic seeds as well as the

Organic Certification system.

I don’t just eat organic

foods because I believe it

is healthier for me — that

is just one reason.

Another reason is that

I believe in the organic

system and how it relies

on sustainability. In that, it

makes things better and not

worse over time.

Organic farmers that

actually use and follow the

organic system actually

grow more and more nutritionally

rich food, while

spending less and less

and at the same time not

damaging the environment

with toxic waste runoff

from their fertilizers, pesticides,

etc.

So don’t be fooled into

believing that everything

is fine and A-OK with GE

foods. Insist that scientist

listen to doctors and look

closely at GE foods and

what potential to damage

can occur if not studied

to include effects of, say,

Roundup on humans as

well as on the whole biological

system.

Ride of the Week

Composer, hockey player, car girl: Megan Cavallari

Fireball Tim Lawrence

Contributing Columnist

Malibu resident

Unexpected. That’s

the word I’d use

to describe Megan

Cavallari, an accomplished

composer of feature films,

television, theater opera

and song writing. But

that’s not what I’m referring

to here. Although Megan

has had a great career

so far and has created great

scores, what makes here

unique is her car and how

she uses it. Thus, she’s my

Ride of the Week.

Now, Megan’s car itself

isn’t a hot rod or a custom.

It’s isn’t a muscle car or a

monster truck. What she

does have is a 2012 Lexus

CT 200 Hybrid. OK, so at

this point you’re probably

saying, “That’s it, Fireball.

You’ve gone to the looney

bin!” And I’d respond by

saying, “I own the looney

bin,” and here’s why Megan

belongs there too.

“I’ve had this Lexus for

four-and-a-half years,”

Cavallari said. “Got it at

a dealer in Van Nuys and

there’s a lot of reasons why

I love this car.”

She then broke down her

reasons one by one.

No. 1: “All film composers

and songwriters

listen to the ‘mix’ in their

cars. We do this to make

sure the music is mixed

well, and the levels are

right. Sometimes directors,

music supervisors, show

runners [or] producers

don’t have time to listen

to links in their office, so

on their way home on the

101, 405, 134 or 5 parking

lot/freeways, they listen

to your music in their car.

The sound system is awesome

in this car and I test

all my music in it.”

Malibu resident Megan Cavallari stands beside her

2012 Lexus CT 200 Hybrid. Fireball Tim Lawrence/22nd

Century Media

OK, so that’s cool. But it

gets better.

No. 2: “My 11-yearold

daughter has juvenile

arthritis, so I have to put a

wheelchair in the car and it

fits perfectly and can hold

her as well.”

An even better reason,

but hold on a tick.

No. 3: “My ice hockey

gear.” Wait...what? “While

hunting for a car, I took

CDs to listen to the sound

system and my ice hockey

gear bag. The trunk is

much lower than other hybrids

and you are exhausted

after playing hockey

with a bunch of men.”

And there it is. This

sweet-looking, unassuming

young lady is a hockey

bruiser. To which, when I

met her for the first time

and we filmed an episode

of my show, she had just

been stick-checked in the

face and neck and was in

severe pain. Her reaction?

“All good, baby. Can’t

wait to get back out there.”

So, as a composer, mom

to daughter Shoshie and

founder of The Talk Foundation,

Megan also spends

her nights battle-axing

in men’s ice hockey — a

sport is all about impact.

Thinks she’s nuts? You can

tell her at www.megancavallari.com.

Be sure to tell

her I sent you, too.

But let’s head back to

the ride for a jiff.

“The other best part

about the car,” Cavallari

said, “is I spend $20

to $30 a month to fill up

a tank. It’s helping the

environment. I am a vegan

and environmentalist and

anything I can do to help is

important to me.”

Vegan, environmentalist,

ice hockey — wow.

“I use this car for business

meetings, lunches,

driving to orchestra or percussion

sessions, rehearsals,

concerts and driving

my 11-year-old around.

When I first got this car, all

the moms at my daughter’s

school kept asking what

kind of car it was because

it is cute. Little by little

they started to get them.”

But did the other moms

know she was whacking

pucks into men’s faces?

Probably not.

“Malibu is a great

place to drive because it’s

another world,” Cavallari

said. “[It’s] casual and

the temperature is 20-30

degrees cooler than the

valley. The air is clean, the

ocean is beautiful. What’s

not to love?”

And there you have it,

folks. Cavallari enjoys her

car, momness, music and

destroying men’s egos by

sending them face first into

the net. (I’m paraphrasing

here. She might be sending

them into the glass to lose

their teeth. Just saying.).

Alex Vejar, Assistant Editor

“I had this idea

of creating

these life-size

portraits of

great whites,

and I came

home and I

made them.”

Natalie Arnoldi —

Malibu native

As a woman entered the

largest room at Ace Gallery

in Beverly Hills on Thursday,

July 7, she stopped

briefly and expressed a

sense of wonder at what she

saw inside.

“This is a shark tank in

here,” the woman said.

“Wow.”

On the walls inside the

50-foot-wide room with

ceilings about 20 feet up

hung life-size oil paintings

of great white sharks. The

pieces were part of a new

exhibition of work called

“Below Sea Level” by Malibu

native Natalie Arnoldi

that will appear at Ace Gallery

until the end of August.

Arnoldi’s work is the result

of a marriage between

two of her passions: oil

painting and marine biology.

After high school, Arnoldi

attended Stanford University

and earned a bachelor’s in

marine biology and a master’s

in ocean science.

During her time in college,

she worked in a lab

that placed satellite tags on

great whites and tracked

their movements. Last fall,

while working in the same

lab, she regularly came face

to snout with 15- to 18-foot

great whites.

Then, something clicked.

“I had this idea of creating

these life-size portraits

of great whites, and I came

home and I made them,”

Arnoldi said.

The giant paintings depict

actual living sharks

that Arnoldi has studied,

she said. Other paintings in

the exhibition include pieces

depicting crashing ocean

waves and jellyfish. Arnoldi

also showed smaller

paintings of various ocean

landscapes.

The majority of Arnoldi’s

work in the exhibition

featured misty or cloudy

layers shrouding sharks or

ocean landscapes in her

paintings. Arnoldi said that

effect has a purpose.

“I find it really fascinating

to create a figurative

painting that is almost borderline

abstract,” Arnoldi

said. “The idea behind that

is giving the viewer enough

information to place you in

a specific time and place,

but leave enough ambiguity

that you have to fill in that

blank on your own.”

Arnoldi grew up in Little

Dume, spending her entire

childhood in Malibu surfing,

tidepooling and being

in the ocean, she said. Her

first encounter with sharks

came at a young age when

she would see hundreds of

leopard sharks, which are

portraits of a great white shark that is part of a new

about 4-5 feet long, while

looking over her surfboard.

“That had a very profound

influence on me at a

young age,” Arnoldi said.

“From the time I was about

8 years old, I wanted to be

a shark biologist. That’s all

I wanted to do.”

All that time spent in the

ocean at Little Dume and

in Malibu, where there are

many creative people and

lots of nature, contributed

to Arnoldi finding her two

passions.

“It got me involved in the

ocean both in an aesthetic

way and in a scientific, analytical

way,” Arnoldi said. “I

think Malibu was very influential

for me in being both

an artist and a scientist.”

Arnoldi said that while

she is currently only involved

in creating and

showing art, she is looking

into doctorate programs so

she can go back to school.

But her dream, she said,

is to find a way to work in

both ocean science and art

at the same time.

The Dish

New chef at Malibu Cafe brings own ribs recipe

Alex Vejar, Assistant Editor

With every season, it’s

not unusual to see changes

in the menus of Malibu

restaurants. In the last few

weeks, you may have read

about some of them in the

Malibu Surfside News’ The

Dish feature.

But a complete menu

overall is a different story.

And that’s just what happened

a few months ago at

Malibu Cafe.

The restaurant was about

to unveil a new menu when

it hired Phil Mack as its

new lead chef. Luckily for

Mack, Malibu Cafe’s new

menu was going to include

a host of barbecue dishes,

which just so happened to

be right up his alley.

“I bleed it,” Mack said

about barbecue cuisine. “I

live it. Talk about barbecue,

that’s me through and

through.”

Mack used to compete

on the barbecue circuit, he

said. During that time, he

developed his own recipe

for sauce and for a rack of

cheese and also includes some cheddar.

barbecue ribs.

That recipe is on full

display at Malibu Cafe in

the Calamigos Ranch Ribs

($36, full rack plus side).

The ribs are juicy and tender.

They come off the bone

with a casual pull — something

Mack called a “perfect

bite,” a sign of a wellprepared

set of ribs.

As far as the taste, Mack

said the ribs have both a

combination of a little bit

of heat, but plenty of sweet

as well.

“The sweet factor is a little

of a derivative of St. Louisstyle

of barbecue,” Mack

said. “The heat is really to

open up the palate, and then

the sweet will go ahead and

calm everything down.”

Mack’s journey of creating

his own ribs recipe took

some work.

chef. Photos by Alex Vejar/22nd Century Media

While competing in

barbecue competitions,

he noticed there was no

real definition for Southern

California barbecue.

So when he decided to focus

on his goal of becoming

an executive chef, he

spent some time traveling

around Southern California’s

ethnically eclectic

areas tasting different

spices.

Eventually, he built his

unique rub.

“I really took three

months to kind just travel

around Los Angeles —

there’s so many different

ethnic backgrounds — and

kind of develop a flavor

profile that was cohesive

to Southern California so

you couldn’t get that taste

or that flavor anywhere

else,” Mack said.

•Sweet Potato Au Gratin

Boys Water Polo

Sharks move up to Division III, look ahead to fall season

Alex Vejar, Assistant Editor

The Malibu High School

boys water polo team has

enjoyed much success in recent

years. But this upcoming

fall season, head coach

Mike Mulligan and his

squad have new challenges

to face.

The Sharks were recently

moved from Division VI to

Division III this season, representing

a jump in competition.

The change occurred

after the win-loss records of

all CIF teams were placed in

a computer program, Mulligan

said.

The result was a significant

rearranging for all the

schools in every division.

“It’s a hodgepodge right

now,” Mulligan said. “Nobody

knows anything about

anybody, really.”

But Malibu’s play in the

last two years seems to have

put it in this position. The

Sharks routinely beat teams

in higher divisions, and if

they didn’t, they only lost

by one or two goals.

The caveat is the teams in

Division III this year have

hovered around that level

defender chases him.

of competition for the last

few years and are used the

intensity, Mulligan said.

Malibu, meanwhile, has

been in Division VI, and

will have to play at a higher

level throughout the regular

season and especially the

playoffs.

“I don’t think you’re going

to get one to two games

like you did in our last division

that were blowouts,”

Mulligan said. “I think right

away the games are going to

be difficult and very close.”

The Sharks are currently

in preparation mode for the

fall. They are five weeks

into a six-week summer

league schedule that has the

team playing two games every

Wednesday.

Mulligan said the focus

of summer league this year

is to install a new offensive

system that will have them

playing at a faster pace

“Instead of a real set-up

offense, we’re looking to

get down the pool, try to get

on the counterattack,” Mulligan

said. “If not, we’re just

going to continually drive

and move the ball and see if

we can create some six-onfives.”

On the defensive end of

the pool, the Sharks will

look to put pressure on opponents,

a strategy they’ve

regularly employed in recent

years. Malibu also has

solutions for when it faces

a team with a talented twometer

player.

“We need to do a good

job of that because there

are a couple of teams we’re

going to see that have really

good two-meter guys,”

Mulligan said. “So we want

to keep the ball out of that

position and then let the outside

guys shoot because we

have two pretty strong goalies

this year.”

Mulligan said the team’s

goal this season — as it is every

season — is to finish first

in the league. He also hopes

to make it to the semifinals in

this year’s postseason.

Before that happens,

though, the Sharks have

some work to do to prove

the seasons that got them to

Division III weren’t flukes.

“They’re really going to

have to step up and play

solid water polo to represent

those stats from the last two

years,” Mulligan said. “But

it’s going to be a great challenge

for us and we all look

forward to doing it.”

Several Malibu children compete in junior

lifeguard event, some earn trophies, medals

Staff Report

A group of about 30 children — some

Malibu locals — showed their budding lifesaving

skills in a Junior Lifeguard competition

on July 1 at Zuma Beach.

Each competitor participated in four events:

a distance run, ocean swim, ocean paddleboard

race and beach flags sprint. The aspiring

junior lifeguards ranged in age from 9-17, and

were separated into three age groups.

The top boy and girl finishers from each

group received trophies, while those who

finished second through fifth received

medals.

MHS jumper almost quit track team

Alex Vejar, Assistant Editor

Coming into her senior

year, Malibu High School

graduate Joie Cosentino

was done with track and

field. After three years of

pole vaulting on the girls

team, she’d lost interest

and was only attending

practices to hang out with

her friends.

But at last year’s track

banquet, MHS jump coach

Mike Halualani walked up

to Cosentino and attempted

to convince her to return to

the team as a jumper rather

than a pole vaulter. Halualani,

who was also undecided

about returning to the

track team, cut a deal with

Cosentino that night.

“If I came back, she

would come back and she

would just long jump and

triple jump, [and] scratch

out of the pole vault,”

Halualani said.

The agreement worked.

Once Cosentino experienced

her first long jump

in practice, she was hooked

on the “exhilarating” feeling

alone.

“You don’t even think

about anything around

you,” Cosentino said.

“You’re just straight sprinting

down the runway. You

don’t see anything, you

don’t hear anything. You’re

feeling the air in your face.

Then you jump and it kind

of just feels like you’re flying

for a few seconds.”

Feeling encouraged by

her early progress and

with the help of Halualani,

Cosentino quickly took a

re-liking to track and ended

the season as one of the

Sharks’ best jumpers. Her

personal-best long jump

was 15 feet, 7 inches, while

“Whatever

college coach

gets her is

going to be the

luckiest college

coach in the

world. She is a

diamond in the

rough that will

just get better

and better.”

Mike Halualani —

MHS jump coach on

Joie Cosentino’s potential

in college.

MHS graduate Joie Cosentino will join the track and field team at Santa Monica College in the fall. Alex Vejar/22nd

Century Media

her best triple jump was 32-

9.

Cosentino decided she

loved jumping so much that

she will join the track and

field team at Santa Monica

College in the fall. That

decision was the product

of overcoming three prior

years with a lack of selfconfidence

in her abilities.

Cosentino joined the

track and field team as a

pole vaulter her freshman

year at MHS to satisfy the

school’s physical education

requirement. But she constantly

dreaded competing

in meets.

“I’d be so terrified to do

meets with pole vaulting,”

said Cosentino, adding that

the anxiety possibly came

from her perfectionist nature

likely developed after

nine years of ballet dancing.

“I would always automatically

assumed I was

going to lose.”

Even after she satisfied

her P.E. requirement, Consentino

still continued to

compete on the team, but

only so we can have an

after-school activity.

“I think I did it because

I felt like I should,” Cosentino

said.

But after a successful senior

year, Cosentino said she

was glad she decided to try

jumping on the MHS team.

“It was probably one

of my best decisions this

year,” Cosentino said.

Halualani, who calls

himself the president of the

Joie Cosentino fan club,

was also happy she decided

to jump in her senior year.

While the coach only started

working with Cosentino

in January, Halualani said

she continues to improve

“exponentially.”

“In that short amount of

time, she ended up going

from someone who had

never triple jumped or really

long jumped to one of

the best long jumpers and

triple jumpers in the area,”

Halualani said.

Cosentino attributes her

newfound confidence to her

coach, who she said also

helped her get in shape.

Halualani said taking her

out of her comfort zone by

forcing her to compete at

weekend invitational track

meets in March and April

also helped Cosentino’s

confidence.

Halualani gushed about

Cosentino’s potential as a

collegiate athlete.

“Whatever college coach

gets her is going to be the

luckiest college coach in

the world,” Halualani said.

“She is a diamond in the

rough that will just get better

and better.”

Cosentino expects to

study English and art in

college in hopes to become

an author and an artist. During

her senior year at MHS,

Cosentino’s AP art teacher,

Thor Evanson, helped grow

her confidence in that area

as well, she said.

After two years at SMC,

Cosentino wants to transfer

to a four-year university

somewhere in Southern

California, she said.

In addition to her athletic

and academic prowess,

Halualani said Cosentino

is also a quality all-around

person.

“She’s the kind of kid

you want your kid to grow

up to be,” Halualani said.

Star tennis player cares

Athlete of the Week

10 Questions

with Joie Cosentino

Alex vejar

alex@malibusurfsidenews.com

Since starting tennis

at the age of 10,

Pepperdine Waves

women’s tennis player

Luisa Stefani has been all

about getting better.

As a young player, Stefani

only initially participated

in tennis as a leisure

sport, taking lessons once a

week on Saturday mornings.

But she soon started

ramping up her practice

time and competing in

local tournaments. She

eventually got to the point

where she started traveling

around South America to

compete.

Her progression landed

her at a tennis academy

called Saddleback Prep

School in Chapel, Florida,

where she moved with her

family when she was 14.

But because she wasn’t

yet an American citizen,

Stefani had to travel back

and forth to South America

to compete in junior circuit

International Tennis

Federation tournaments in

order to improve her game

and ranking.

Stefani got so good that

two years ago, she started

competing at the Junior

Grand Slams, which consists

of Wimbledon and the

U.S., French and Australian

opens.

Stefani generally performed

better in doubles

play during those competitions,

according to results

on the ITF website.

After seeing all that

improvement over the

years, it’s no surprise that

Stefani, after deciding to

attend Pepperdine University,

would have designs

to develop her tennis game

even further.

“I feel like I came to

college just to improve my

tennis in order to go professional

later on, which is

what I want to do,” Stefani

said in an interview last

month with the Malibu

Surfside News. “So being

ranked high or doing well

this season, it’s really

cool to see how much I’ve

improved, see some differences

in my game and see

how much the [coaching

staff] at Pepperdine helped

me get to the highest level

in the national collegiate

rankings.”

Stefani recently finished

a stellar freshman season

for the Waves, competing

in the semifinals of the

NCAA Singles Championships

and earning All-

America status from the

International Tennis Association.

Throughout the

season, she stayed among

the top 15 players nationally,

ranking as high as No.

2 and finishing at No. 6.

Stefani said she feels she

accomplished the goal she

set at the start of her freshman

year.

“I think I improved a

lot,” Stefani said. “I think I

learned a lot about myself

on the court.”

Stefani’s overall development

came gradually.

Moving to the United

States was an adjustment

for Stefani, particularly for

her tennis game. In South

America, clay courts are

more common, and players

tend to stay at the baseline

when hitting the ball. But

in America, the surface of

choice is hard court.

Stefani said playing on

hard courts forced her to

learn to be more aggressive,

get to the ball faster

and go to the net more

often than she was accustomed.

Even though she’s competed

at a high level for the

past two years with all her

Grand Slam experience,

her only focus is to be best

player she can be. And

although Stefani suffered

a disappointing loss in the

NCAA tournament, Stefani

is already looking ahead to

becoming sharper on the

court, she said.

“My goal is just to

get better and do well in

the NCAA tournament,”

Stefani said. “If I keep

improving, I think that’s

whats going to happen. So

that’s the goal again.”

@AlexVReporting.

Joie Cosentino competed as a jumper on

the Malibu High School girls track and

field team.

How and when did you get involved

in track and field?

I started when I was a ninth-grader, but

I didn’t really get serious about it until this

year. Ninth, 10th and 11th grade I did pole

vaulting, but I wasn’t really into it. I kind if

just did it for PE credit and a social activity.

But this year, I decided to stop pole vaulting

and I picked up long jump and triple

jump. I totally fell in love with jumping.

What do you like most about track

and field?

I like that while it’s a team sport...I

also like how it’s an individual thing. For

jumps, it’s all about me. I don’t have to rely

on other people on the team. It’s kind of

just how I’m doing or pushing myself, trying

to beat my scores rather than worrying

about other people.

What is the most difficult aspect of

track and field?

Definitely the mental aspect because I

tend to overthink things a lot. So with jumping,

if I mess up, that might throw me off.

What is your best vacation

memory?

My family and I all went up to Oregon on

a road trip one time and our car broke down

when we were up in Southern Oregon. Our

car broke down in this really remote town

[of Grants Pass]. It was really strange because

we had to stay there for a few days.

But it actually turned out to be super fun,

even though it was such a weird town.

Alex Vejar/22nd Century Media

What athletes do you look up to?

I think [American Olympic gold medalist

in track and field] Allyson Felix is

really amazing. I like to watch her in the

Olympics. I also really like Bethany Hamilton,

the surfer, because I think it’s a really

inspiring story that she went through and

how she came back from that.

Who are you role models?

Basically everyone in my family. They

all have really good traits, especially my

parents. They work so hard — harder than

anybody I know. They still stay positive,

they still support us. Even though there’s

so many of us in the family, they never

make us feel like it’s such a burden to have

to support six kids. I think they’ve given us

a really good upbringing and set us up for

good steps in life.

Describe Malibu in one word.

Beautiful.

Where do you see yourself after

college?

I’d like to be an author and artist, so

hopefully something within that area.

If you could have any super power,

what would it be and why?

I would say to heal people. Like if you

have any sadness or physical wounds. I just

think that’d be cool.

What is your guilty pleasure?

That TV show “Jeopardy.” I don’t know

why. It’s really intriguing for me.

Two Waves alumni

named to Olympic

water polo squad

Submitted by Pepperdine

Athletics

The U.S. men’s water

polo roster was released for

the upcoming Rio Olympics

and two Pepperdine

alums made the list. Current

Waves assistant coach

Merrill Moses and former

Pepperdine standout Jesse

Smith will represent the

United States at the games

in August.

Smith is playing in his

fourth Olympics after also

competing in 2004, 2008

and 2012, while Moses is

playing in his third straight

games (2008, ’12). Moses

is Team USA’s starting

goalkeeper, while Smith

serves as a utility player for

the squad.

Pepperdine alumni Jack

Kocur and Alex Rodriguez

will also be serving as assistant

coaches with the

U.S. national team during

the Rio Olympics. Kocur

played for the Waves from

1993-97 and served as head

coach at Pepperdine from

2006-11. Rodriguez played

in Malibu from 1996-97

and is currently the head

coach at Pomona-Pitzer.

Both Smith and Moses

were on the 2008 U.S.

squad that won a silver

medal in Beijing. That team

was also coached by current

Pepperdine head coach

and U.S. water polo legend

Terry Schroeder. Smith and

Moses helped Team USA

qualify for the 2016 games

in Rio with a gold medal

at the 2015 Pan-American

Games in Toronto. The two

Waves make up half of the

four players on the U.S.

Mose

Smith

squad to have played in

multiple Olympics.

Moses played for Pepperdine

from 1995-98,

leading the Waves to a

national championship

in 1997. He earned MVP

honors at the 1997 NCAA

Championships and was

a two-time All-American

for Pepperdine. Moses returned

to Malibu as an assistant

coach in 2012 and

has been on staff with the

program ever since.

Smith played for the

Waves from 2001-05, earning

first-team All-America

status in both 2002 and

2004. He has been a part

of the U.S. National Team

program since playing in

the Junior Pan-American

Games in 2000 and made

his Olympic debut while

still playing for Pepperdine

in 2004.

Five Pepperdine players

have gone on to play in

what will now be six different

Olympics. Schroeder

played for Team USA in

the 1984, 1988 and 1992

games, and coached the national

team at the 2008 and

2012 Olympics. Geoffrey

Clark played for Australia

in 1988 and 1992, and

Roberto Borelli played for

Brazil in the 1984 Olympics.

The U.S. opens the

games against Croatia on

Aug. 6.
