She grew up in a small village in the southwestern part of Germany close to the Black Forest. Her farming background Schoenberger contributed to her lifelong love of gardening and flowers. As a fun loving teenager she met Klaus and they were later married and shortly after immigrated to the Untied States. She worked as a cleaning lady while Klaus worked as a machinist. In a few years their entrepreneurial spirit took over and they started a business in tooling and molding. They also started to invest in real estate properties that they would fix up. She had two children, Lisa and Scott, and participated in helping their education by donating time at the library and local schools. She also enjoyed choir, painting, baking and flying. Schoenberger had a great sense of adventure and loved to travel. She would always jump at a chance to be in a small plane or helicopter. With her world travels, her love for her adopted country became stronger and she became a U.S. citizen, of which she was very proud. Probably the most special thing about Schoenberger is that she loved people. She could not go anywhere without touching people with her infectious laugh and quick smile. She took interest in others and made friends quickly with everyone she met. She also loved to spread joy with her baking. During Christmastime she would bake over 80 Linzer Tortes to pass out to family and friends. She is survived by her sisters Margret, Klara, and Agnes as well as her children Lisa (Logan) and Scott (Jennifer), along with grandchildren Sarah and Andrew. In lieu of flowers, and in honor of Schoenberger’s passion for flying, the family asks for contributions to EAA at Donations should be marked in memory of Maria Schoenberger to make sure the money is used to teach kids to fly.

Life & Arts Malibu surfside news | February 15, 2017 | 25 Ride of the Week Actor Jonathan Banks to be guest at Wheels and Waves The Lady Grey joins Nobu menu for limited time Nobu Malibu bartender creates unique cocktail Lauren Coughlin, Editor Fireball Tim Lawrence Contributing Columnist Malibu resident It’s amazing how things happen in this town and how cars bring people together. Just the other day, a friend and I were getting coffee at a local Bu coffee joint where we ran into actor and professional bad guy, Jonathan Banks from “Breaking Bad” and “Better Call Saul.” And not too prior were we talking about how villains in movies are actually really great people with immense senses of humor and a joy to be around. Case in point are a lot of my stunt friends, who constantly get killed in movies as bad guys. Love ‘em. Well, here we were talking with Banks, ultimate bad guy who’s been offed so many times in movies and TV that God is having a hard time remembering if he’s passed on or not. And lo and behold, Johnny and his son love cars. So, one ride led to another and he graciously opted to be our guest for this up and coming Wheels and Waves at the Malibu Country Mart on Sunday, Feb. 19. Actor Jonathan Banks from “Breaking Bad” and “Better Call Saul,” among many other hits, will be at Wheels and Waves at Malibu Country Mart on Sunday, Feb. 19. Photo Submitted Now, if you don’t know who Johnny Banks is, crawl out from your rock and let me give you a skinny on his massive tour de TV destruction. I first cast eyes on Banks’ creepiness in “Beverly Hills Cop” against Eddie Murphy. Scary as hell with an inner passion for unraveling your psyche. But his career started way before ... back in ‘74 (Hey, I made a rhyme!) Better still, here’s some highlights. From “Barnaby Jones” (which my dad wrote for at the time) to “The Waltons,” “Airplane!”, “Lou Grant,” “T.J. Hooker,” “48 Hrs,” “Simon & Simon,” “Jessie” (which was a show my dad created), “Walker, Texas Ranger” with my Uncle Chuck, and a heap of others. Finally landing some small insignificant rolls in two shows you’ve probably never heard of ... “Breaking Bad” and “Better Call Saul.” Whaaaa!!!!!?? A total so far of 163 projects and going strong. (Geez ... that coffee really works brutha!) So it’s with great honor (and a little fear) that Mr. Banks will be joining us for this weekend’s Wheels and Waves, barring a maelstrom of rain. Keep your tiny toes crossed, ’cause if it does rain, I’ll be sitting in Starbucks alone and cold. If the rain stays away (and it better or I’ll sick Banks on Mother Nature), then Sunday should be an awesome day for amazing cars at Malibu Country Mart. And one last note to mention is that Starbucks has now stepped up to the plate to cast a latte shadow over the show as our go-to java joint for Wheels and Waves. Not only will they serve up the joe to the first 100 cars, but one of their baristas will be baking us a car cake just for Sunday. So, if you plan on attending this weekend’s Wheels and Waves, (car or no car) if it rains I’ll be buying coffee from the inside. If the sun peeks her head and doesn’t run for the hills from our guest, then we’ll be whoopin’ it up with tons of four-wheeled contraptions. See you there! Want to be featured in Ride of the Week?

Photo Courtesy of Nobu Restaurants Every two months, Nobu Restaurants shakes things up with its in-house cocktail competition. The competition pits a rotating selection of bartenders from the restaurant’s nine U.S. locations against one another, and the winning recipe joins the menu for two months. This month and next, the recipe crafted by Nobu Malibu lead bartender Jacklyn Davin won the bragging rights, and will be available to Nobu Restaurant customers across the U.S. The Lady Grey starts with a batch of Ikaati Imperial Earl Grey Tea, which Davin said is infused with Beluga vodka and steeped overnight. The cocktail is rounded out with lemon juice, simple syrup, egg white, lavender bitters and an orange spiral zest garnish. “It’s something different,” Davin said. “It’s really balanced, too, and you don’t really see a lot of cocktails that have tea or infusion in California.” Davin added that it’s the only infused cocktail currently on the menu at Nobu Malibu. “It has all the notes of a regular tea,” she said. Nobu Restaurants Corporate Beverage Director Marcus Voglrieder, who is one of the judges for the competition, said the contest is designed to encourage creativity among the bartenders. “Taste is the most important factor, and then we have the creativity and then we have the presentation as well,” Voglrieder said. “With her cocktail, it was just the right balance,” he said. This was Davin’s second time participating in the competition and also her second time winning. Nobu Malibu, located at 22706 PCH, will feature the The Lady Grey now through the end of March.
