Construction projects and

security updates discussed

Malibu CERT Team and the City of Malibu

MALIBU SAFETY &

re e

Maintenance items

totaling $2.8M

to be completed

district-wide

Michele Willer-Allred

Freelance Reporter

Extensive work was done

on school facilities in Malibu

during summer break,

including the removal and

replacement of soils that

tested positive for polychlorinated

biphenyls at Malibu

High School and a major reconstruction

project at Webster

Elementary School.

That work continues, as

construction of a new middle

school building carries

on at the high school, where

the administration and library

buildings also have

been razed to make way for

a new science building.

During its meeting on

Thursday, Sept. 20, the

Santa Monica-Malibu Unified

School District Board

of Education received an

update on projects — both

completed and ongoing —

at schools in both Malibu

and Santa Monica.

About $2.8 million in deferred

maintenance projects

have or will be completed,

according to the district,

with funding coming from

voter-approved bond measures.

“It was a very, very busy

summer for us,” said Roosevelt

Brown, director of

maintenance and operations.

“It was the first time

in years that we had this

type of money to do projects.”

Steve Massetti, bond

program manager, said the

PCBs were found below the

former library and administration

building, and were

determined to be below

actionable levels set by the

Environmental Protection

Agency.

Massetti said that after

consulting with various

committees, the recommendation

was to go ahead

and remove the soil and replace

it with clean soil. The

work was completed before

school started.

Kevin Klaus, deputy program

manager, said a “tremendous

amount” of work

on a major reconstruction

project at Webster was completed

before school started.

That work included a new

paved parking lot along

Civic Center Way for badly

needed parking, and complete

asphalt reconstruction

in the upper and lower playgrounds.

Klaus said the school now

has a continuous ADA path

from the lower parking lot

to the top of two playground

areas, which was a challenge

because it’s on a sloping

site. The school also received

a new buzzer system

for the administrative office,

and a new parent drop off

area is to be completed at

the end of October.

New windows, paint,

heating and air conditioning

systems, roof improvements

and other upgrades have

been or will be completed

at both Point Dume and

Juan Cabrillo elementary

schools.

At Malibu High School, a

new main distribution frame

building has been completed,

and a stairway from the

parking lot to the athletic

fields are nearly complete.

The underground infrastructure

and foundation also

have been completed for a

new middle-school building,

made from modular

structures by GrowthPoint

Structures.

The high school’s Mako

building also now has airconditioning

in all rooms

and two ADA-compliant

bathrooms.

Jerry Gibson, facility use

manager, said upgrades to

the audio, video and theatrical

equipment were made

in all of the district’s 10 elementary

schools. The new,

state-of-the-art equipment

can be remotely controlled

by a teacher using an iPad

in the classroom, and also

fixed remotely by maintenance

staff.

Gibson said all schools

received new fire-proof theater

curtains, which saved

the district thousands of

dollars each year in fire retardant.

About 20 water bottlefilling

stations also were

installed at schools throughout

the district.

Board Member Laurie

Lieberman commended district

staff for the work that

has been completed. She

also said the work was made

possible by the community,

which voted for the bonds.

“Kudos to all of you

and to our community

for enabling us to do

all of this,” Lieberman

said.

City, County officials celebrate new dawn for Santa

Conjoining sheriff’s

substation to offer

improved police

response

Suzanne Guldimann

Freelance Reporter

A new vision for Malibu’s

Civic Center started

to come into focus Friday,

Sept. 21.

That day, County and

City officials gathered at

the site of Malibu’s long

abandoned sheriff’s substation

to break ground on

Malibu’s new Santa Monica

College satellite campus

and Los Angeles County

Sheriff’s Department substation,

in the heart of the

Civic Center.

The new Malibu campus

will be located at the west

end of the County buildings

on Civic Center Way. The

facility will include two

classrooms; an art studio;

a science lab, a multipurpose

space that can double

as an emergency operations

center during a crisis,

a 100-seat lecture hall; and

a computer lab, housed in

a 27,500-square-foot, twostory

building designed by

the firm QDG Architecture.

In the 1980s and 1990s,

Santa Monica College

offered a wide range of

classes in Malibu. In recent

decades, the number of offerings

have dwindled to a

few evening classes at Webster

Elementary School and

several emeritus offerings

at the Malibu Senior Center

at City Hall.

The new campus will

enable the college to once

again offer a diverse selection

of classes in Malibu.

An interpretive center to

to go fast, go

alone. If you

want to go far,

project and the landscaping,

also will be related to

the park directly across the

street.

The facility also will accommodate

a 5,700-squarefoot,

state-of-the-art sheriff’s

substation, complete

with a new communications

tower, and it will provide

a permanent home for

the Malibu Community Labor

Exchange.

event in Malibu on Friday, Sept. 21.

and is contaminated with

asbestos and mold. The entire

building will be razed

to make way for the new

facility. The Malibu Library

and currently unused

Malibu Courthouse, with

its mid-century modern

colonnade, will remain in

place. The new facility will

only occupy the far west

part of the complex.

The project was approved

as part of a 2004 bond measure,

but the process of negotiating

all of the elements

of the project, including

hammering out the memo

of understanding agreement

to build the college on the

County’s property, and to

bring the sheriff’s substation

back to Malibu, was

lengthy and complex.

The groundbreaking ceremony

marked a major milestone

for the college project,

but for some longtime

Malibu residents it was also

a symbolic healing of a rift

between the City of Malibu

and the County that was

opened in the 1970s when

Malibu residents began to

fight to become an independent

City. Malibu won its

independence in 1991, but

lost its County sheriff’s station.

“This project is a great

example of the proverb,

‘If you want to go fast, go

alone. If you want to go far,

go together,’” Los Angeles

County Third District Supervisor

Sheila Kuehl said

at the ceremony. “The last

time this Malibu sheriff’s

substation was open the

Soviet Union was still a

country, the cost of a gallon

of gas was $1.12 and

‘Thelma and Louise’ was a

breakaway box office hit.”

Los Angeles County

Sheriff Jim McDonnell

shared some additional history

of the Malibu sheriff’s

station. He explained that

the first sheriff’s station in

Malibu was opened in the

1940s by the old courthouse

near Las Flores Canyon,

followed by the substation

in the county building in

the early 1960s.

“For 30 years it was the

station for this 170-squaremile

area,” said McDonnell,

ascribing the closure

of the Malibu station to

changing demographics.

“The Lost Hills Sheriff’s

Station opened in 1991,

and shortly after that the

Malibu station closed.”

McDonnell said the new

station will provide emergency

and disaster response

support as well as assistance

with day-to-day issues.

“As Malibu residents

know, there are 13,000 residents

and 20 million visitors

each year,” McDonnell

said. “The new station will

substantially reduce call response

time.”

He explained that there

also are plans to offer emergency

preparedness classes

and workshops at the campus.

Malibu Mayor Rick Mullen

described the process as

“a lot of hard work over a

lot of time,” and praised the

project for combining great

education close to home

with the most important

advancement in Malibu’s

public safety in decades.

“As a firefighter, I am especially

excited [to have the

sheriff’s substation],” Mullen

said. “We are natural

disaster central in Malibu.”

Former Malibu Mayor

Ken Kearsley was an advocate

for the project when

it was first proposed in the

early 2000s.

“I graduated from Santa

Monica College in 1956,”

he said. “This is a dream I

have had and our City has

had for 18 years.”

Santa Monica College Superintendent/President Kathryn

Jeffreys addresses the crowd.

Malibu City Councilmember

Laura Rosenthal

also was among attendees

of the groundbreaking ceremony.

“This is a perfect example

of a collaborative

effort,” Rosenthal told the

Malibu Surfside News.

“The City, County, sheriff’s

department, everyone

worked together through

this complicated process.”

Rosenthal added that she

looks forward to the revitalization

the project will

bring to the area.

Kuehl described the project

in one word: “extraordinary.”

“It’s been a long time

coming,” Kuehl told the

Malibu Surfside News.

“I’m thrilled.”

RSVPs required for next Speaker Series event

Author to offer

glimpse into her

latest animalcentered

book

Submitted by the City of

Malibu

The City of Malibu and

the County of Los Angeles

Public Library are to present

the Malibu Library Speaker

Series, featuring naturalist

and best-selling author Sy

Montgomery, whose adult

and children’s books, films

and articles document a life

spent in close encounters

with animals, at 7 p.m. on

Wednesday, Oct. 3, at the

Malibu Library.

“We are proud to welcome

Sy Montgomery to

discuss her moving works

about the relationship between

people and the animal

kingdom at this moment in

human history when people

could save or destroy the

animal world,” Mayor Rick

Mullen said.

Montgomery will give

a presentation on her most

recent book, “How to Be A

Good Creature: A Memoir

in Thirteen Animals.” In this

poetic, life-affirming memoir,

Montgomery reflects on

the personalities and quirks

of 13 animals that have profoundly

affected her life.

The book also explores

themes such as the similarities

and differences between

people and animals, how

we can learn to love and become

empathetic, how we

create our families, coping

with loss and despair, gratitude

and forgiveness.

Montgomery’s goal is to

reach a worldwide audience

at what she considers to be a

critical turning point in human

history.

“We are on the cusp of

either destroying this sweet,

green Earth — or revolutionizing

the way we understand

the rest of animate

creation,” Montgomery

said. “It’s an important time

to be writing about the connections

we share with our

fellow creatures. It’s a great

time to be alive.”

While researching her

books, films and articles,

Montgomery has been

chased by an angry silverback

gorilla in Zaire, bitten

by a vampire bat in Costa

Rica, worked in a pit crawling

with 18,000 snakes in

Manitoba and handled a

wild tarantula in French

Guiana. Montgomery was

once deftly undressed by an

orangutan in Borneo, hunted

by a tiger in India, and

swam with piranhas, electric

eels and dolphins in the

Amazon. She searched the

Altai Mountains of Mongolia’s

Gobi for snow leopards,

hiked into the trackless

cloud forest of Papua New

Guinea to radio-collar tree

kangaroos, and learned to

scuba dive in order to commune

with the octopus.

Montgomery’s 20 books

for both adults and children

have garnered many honors,

including 2015 Finalist for

the National Book Awards

for her “The Soul of an Octopus.”

“The Good Good

Pig,” a memoir of life with

her pig, Christopher Hogwood,

is an international

bestseller. She is the winner

of the 2009 New England

Independent Booksellers

Association Nonfiction

Award, the 2010 Children’s

Book Guild Nonfiction

Award, the Henry Bergh

Award for Nonfiction (given

by the ASPCA for Humane

Education) and dozens of

other honors.

Her work with man-eating

tigers for “Spell Of The

Tiger” was made into in a

National Geographic television

documentary that she

wrote and narrated. Montgomery

also developed and

wrote “Mother Bear Man”

for National Geographic

TV about her friend, Ben

Kilham, who raises and releases

orphaned bear cubs,

which won a Chris award.

work, visit her

Speakers provide reality check on digital addiction

Emotional, physical

consequences

highlighted at

Malibu event

Barbara Burke

Freelance Reporter

Having the world at one’s

fingertips is not without its

pitfalls.

Dr. Don Grant, a media

psychologist and chairman

of the American Psychological

Association’s

Device Management Committee,

recently provided a

data-based and somewhat

startling description of the

overuse and misuse of the

internet and devices.

A crowd of mental health

professionals and concerned

Malibu residents gathered

Sept. 16 for “Left to Their

Own Devices,” an insightful,

eye-opening presentation.

The town hall event,

held at Malibu United Methodist

Church, was chaired

by Malibu psychologist Dr.

Ericha Scott.

Grant emphasized how

concerns related to internet

usage have escalated.

“Sixty-one percent of

Americans admit to being

addicted to the internet

and their devices,” he said.

“American youth[s] spend

an average of 7.5 hours a

day engaged with media,

and adults spend an average

of more than 10 hours

each day consuming media,

including using tablets,

smartphones, personal computers,

multimedia devices,

video games, radio, DVDs

and TVs.”

Beyond superficial

A lessening of people’s

attention spans and a negative

effect on interpersonal

relationships are just a few

of the consequences Grant

touched upon. Further, he

noted that multitaskers

significantly demonstrate

poorer memories, decreased

academic performance,

heightened impulsivity,

higher social anxiety, depression

and neuroticism.

The negative societal

effects are pervasive and

sometime pernicious. The

physical, emotional and

organic effects of the radiation

emanating from digital

devices are concerning to

scientists, but are as of yet

undefined, according to

Grant.

“We should never sleep

near our cellphone or carry

it all the time,” he said.

“With increased exposure

to internet-based devices,

there is a reduced volume in

the anterior cingulate cortex

and you can visually see the

effect on the human brain.”

Attendees gasped at the

thought, especially when

Grant noted that scientists

will not define for approximately

another generation

the exact long-term effects

of digital device exposure

on humans.

“The internet is how

we function, but, in addition

to the possible physical

problems it can cause,

the societal addiction to it

is leaving people isolated

and everyone feels disconnected,”

Grant said. “We

sometimes need to remove

ourselves and families may

want to consider a digital

sabbath – a time when all

screens are off.”

The dark side of social

media

In a world where people

live for “likes,” followers

and instant gratification, cyber

bullying can have grave

consequences and the incidence

of suicidal ideations

Event participants (left to right) Lynne Pederson, Dr.

Don Grant and Dr. Ericha Scott pose with the Rev. Sandy

Liddell, of Malibu United Methodist Church during a Sept.

16 presentation entitled “Left to Their Own Devices.”

Barbara Burke/22nd Century Media

among youth has risen appreciably

in the last eight

years, Grant said, displaying

an array of slides with supportive

statistical data.

Grant founded Resolutions

Teen Center, an addiction

center in Santa Monica

which helps digitally addicted

youth to detox. There,

he deals with patients who

don’t just overuse digital

devices, but who also manifest

mental health issues,

ADHD, or other maladaptive

or unhealthy behaviors.

He noted that older adults

are digital immigrants and

they ceded the control of

internet-based devices to

digital natives, the younger

generation.

“We gave them the most

powerful tool ever and we

did so without understanding

that it was a digital ‘Lord

of the Flies,’” he said. “Because

we didn’t understand

the internet and devices, we

let the younger generation

take it over.”

The effects have been astounding.

“There’s always a Piggy

and a Ralph,” said Grant,

alluding to the novel’s preadolescent

characters who

struggle to organize and

control a societal microcosm

bereft of adult guidance.

The presentation also

touched upon the unsettling

fad in which young girls

post partially naked or sexually

explicit selfies online.

Grant told Malibu Surfside

News about instances

of nefarious actors preying

upon youth.

“This is not your daddy’s

Playboy,” he said. “Boys

are manipulating girls to

text or Snapchat revealing

images and then they are

playing online poker, trying

to collect sexually explicit

pictures of girls of all races

and from private and public

schools. Then, those pictures

are finding their way

to child pornography sites

all over the world.”

Restoring the human

connection

“It’s overwhelming and

I just want to know how I

can make the internet safe

for kids,” said attendee

Lulu Johnson, of Malibu.

“My daughter told me that

people don’t call each other

anymore and they’re always

texting which terrifies me

because children are not

learning to communicate –

it’s bizarre and scary, especially

when kids are posting

material on Instagram.”

Lynne Pederson, who also

spoke as part of the presentation,

is the founder of One

Recovery, a nonprofit that

engages students on high

school campuses to address

internet-based addictions,

substance abuse, juvenile

delinquency, the needs of

teens on academic suspension

and other challenges

faced by students. She noted

that youth need real interaction,

support and guidance.

“We have to restore the

human connection,” she

said.

Grant also focused on

the goal of teaching youth

to practice healthy social

media device management

and to be good digital-social

media citizens. His presentation

was comprehensive

and also addressed gaming

addictions.

“Right after my article

‘Internet Gaming Disorders

in Children and Adolescents’

was published in

the Pediatrics Journal in

November 2017, the World

Health Organization issued

a press release announcing

that internet gaming addiction

is a significant mental

health disorder,” he said.

“Although that addiction

and the other internet-based

addictions are not yet listed

in the Diagnostics Statistics

Manual, the publication formally

listing disorders that

medical professionals use,

they are clearly at a pandemic

level.”

The human toll is vast and

the vacuum in personal relationships

cannot be filled.

“There is a startling phenomenon

called absence

presence when people get

together and are physically

present with one another,

but they only focus on their

devices and do not meaningfully

interact,” he said,

“We have to pay attention

to each other. Look, here

this woman was at breakfast

with her daughters and one

of her children was pleading

for her to talk to her and she,

of all things, watched an entire

movie over breakfast,

totally ignoring her child’s

incessantly imploring her to

listen.”

As attendees left the presentation,

they were awakened

to the stark reality that

a balance must be struck so

that the internet is used effectively

but safely.

The digital pendulum

must be balanced. There is

no panacea for addressing

the pervasive elements of

internet misuse and abuse,

but it is imperative to address

those concerns, Grant

said.

Clearly, time is of the essence.

Malibu musician lends

her voice to local cause

Drummond sells

metal straw pack in

light of City’s plastic

straw ban

MALIBU SURFSIDE NEWS is looking

for local FREELANCE REPORTERS

and PHOTOGRAPHERS to cover events,

meetings and sports in the area.

Lauren Coughlin, Editor

Trinity Rose Drummond,

of Malibu, is not shy about

using her voice.

Typically, though, the

15-year-old is on a stage

stringing together sweet

melodies or belting out the

national anthem for marathon

crowds. Recently, she

felt the need to raise her

voice for a different cause:

plastic straws.

After all, Drummond

lives in Malibu, where a

single-use plastic straw

ban became active this past

June. Now, Drummond put

her own stamp on a popular

alternative with a metal

straw pack.

“I made sure everything

was perfect for them and

that it wouldn’t hurt the

environment anymore,”

Drummond told the Surfside

in a phone interview

earlier this month.

The pack costs $10 (plus

$3 for shipping) and features

three different kinds

of metal straws as well as

a straw cleaner. The items

are bundled in a natural fiber

bag featuring a sketch,

in natural ink, that Drummond

drew of herself.

Drummond said she was

encouraged to create the

straw pack after chatting

with Aidan Gallagher, a

14-year-old UN Environment

Goodwill Ambassador

for North America,

who she met online and

Malibu High School sophomore Trinity Rose Drummond

poses with her metal straw pack, which costs $10 (plus

$3 for shipping). Photo Submitted

performed with at the Malibu

Chili Cook-Off late last

month.

Currently, Drummond

said she has about 50 straw

packs available for purchase.

“If people really like

them, I’m willing to get

more,” Drummond said.

Anyone interested in purchasing

a pack can email

trinityroseofficial1@gmail.

com.

Meanwhile, Drummond

also is gearing up for several

shows in Hollywood,

including an Oct. 28 performance

at The Hotel Cafe

(21 and up only). Next

summer, Drummond said

she hopes to release an EP

which she is currently writing.

music, upcoming shows and

Don’t Panic, It’s Organic

Help, my dog is allergic

to my lawn fertilizer!

Andy Lopez

Contributing Columnist

Invisible Gardener

Many pets are

allergic to lawn

fertilizers. Your

dog is not alone.

Many children also are

since they are much closer

to the ground and small.

Many folks also are now

allergic to lawn fertilizers.

One of the problems is

weed-and-feed lawn fertilizers.

If you think Round-

Up is terrible, the stuff that

is added to lawn fertilizers

to control weeds is much,

much worse!

This is so sad because

having a safe, organic lawn

is really easy!

The first thing to do is

to stop buying any type of

chemical lawn fertilizer. Just

tell your gardener to pick up

an organic lawn fertilizer.

There are many on the market

in nurseries like Green

Thumb or Armstrong’s

Nursery, etc. You also can

get it from Amazon.

All organic fertilizers

come with a wide range

of trace minerals, depending

on their sources. So, to

make sure you are feeding

the soil as wide a range of

trace minerals, I would buy

from a different company

each time. Some are made

from chicken manure or

from other types of animal

manure. Many are pelletized

and easy to apply.

Which ones you use also

will depend upon your dog.

I have known some dogs

that would eat a lot of the

manure pellets and then get

the runs! But most pets will

merely smell it and leave it

alone. I would keep the dog

inside during application

and then turn on the lawn

sprinklers to water it in. Let

the dog stay inside for a

few hours.

If you want to be sure

that your dog won’t eat any

of it, then rake it in really

well after watering to allow

it to dissolve. If you think

that will be a problem, just

buy the organic fertilizer

that is not made from

animal manures. I would,

however, try to use a little

of the manure type since

the manure has essential

microbial and bacterial life

needed by the soil. This

is the way it has been for

millions of years. The trace

minerals would typically

come when an animal died

and decomposed, leaving

behind the trace minerals it

collected over its lifetime

from various parts of the

world it lived in. Nowadays,

that doesn’t happen,

so it is up to us to supply

the trace minerals.

Speaking of trace minerals,

weeds only grow in

mineral-deficient soil. The

type of weed tells you what

type of mineral is missing.

The weed’s job is to bring

a specific mineral up to the

surface. It does this by having

deep roots with a particular

microbial living on the

root hairs that have evolved

to take certain minerals and

convert it into a form that

is absorbed into the plant.

Then, when the plant dies,

it returns the minerals to the

surface. Cool, huh?

Lawns are not found in

nature. Lawns were not

located in the Garden of

Eden. But weeds will still

try to do their job. Many

weeds love to grow in a

lawn environment. This is

a perfect setup for them to

thrive in. Plenty of starving

lawn, and plenty of water.

Chemical fertilizers only

make it worse. High nitrogen

inhibits the absorption

of trace minerals, especially

the exotic minerals. Interestingly

enough, it is these

very same exotic minerals

that, when missing, allow

the plants to be attacked by

pests and diseases. It is as if

the chemical fertilizers were

purposely made that way.

So, after a while, chemical

fertilizer companies

started to add weed killer

to their fertilizers because

the weeds were getting out

of control! Weed killers are

very bad for everything.

Think of RoundUp on

steroids. The end result is

more weed-and-feed fertilizers

being sold as well as

more cases of animal or

humans being impacted by

it and having rashes and

other symptoms.

So, to keep a healthy

Ride of the Week

The fall and the rise of vintage trailers

Fireball Tim Lawrence

Contributing Columnist

Malibu resident

Imagine 230 vintage,

classic trailers from

all over the country

heading west and landing

in SoCal.

Sounds like what they

did in the 1880s with

wagon trains, right?

But, alas, this is a

thing. It’s an event that

takes place every year

in Buellton, just north of

Malibu. And as Malibu has

a very unique trailer park,

many of them head up

for this event. But the big

question is why? Why are

people nowadays so into

vintage trailers?

I grew up in the ’60s with

big Lincolns, slab-sided

Mercury Marquis station

wagons and Chrysler Town

& Countrys. These were the

cars that you took across

country, slept in the back of

and complained the whole

way. But in the ’50s, travel

trailers were new, in-style,

colorful and exciting.

Families were purchasing

Shastas, Airstreams,

WeeWinds, TravelBoats,

Holiday Houses and many

others to make their travel

dreams come true.

Over the next few decades

and into the ’80s and

’90s, travel trailers weened,

many falling into disrepair,

junk yards and unsavory

homes. Think “Breaking

Bad.” But in the last decade

or two, travel trailers have

made a massive comeback

to where it’s the ultimate

“glamping” experience.

And the Buellton Vintage

Trailer Bash is one of the

largest gatherings of these

amazing, fully-restored and

period correct trailers.

So, what’s my job? Well,

I’m glad you asked. As I’m

in cahoots with David Neel

at The Murphy Auto Museum

in Oxnard, I’ve been

tasked with several things,

all of them geared toward

creating the best show possible.

And that involves this

breakdown for the Sept. 22

open house. I’ll be Vlogging

each day for our show,

cruising in a scooter at 6

p.m. with Fireball Scooter

Shots (Fireball Whisky),

giving out awards for the

best trailer with my good

friend actor Tony Dow and

his wife, setting up a live

performance for pop star

Celleste and peppering the

entire massive show with

our new “Vintage Trailers

Coloring Book.”

On Saturday as I stated,

it will be the open house for

all to come see these fabulous

trailers. Unfortunately,

by the time this article

comes out in print, it was

last Saturday. Sorry about

that, chief. You missed the

Gilligan’s Island party,

fashion show and multiple

sundowner parties. Maybe

next year.

The connection people

have to their vehicles,

whether it be cars or vintage

trailers, harkens back

to old memories. What

seemed like a simpler time,

but was in fact just at its

essence love on wheels.

Traveling has always meant

joy for me. Discovery,

wonder, clean air and new

things. The Buellton show

is one of the best, most

positive places to go on the

planet. A little place called

Flying Flags in a town that

most people have never

heard of, but as love knows

no bounds, the beauty of

sharing and experiencing

this show with your friends

really encompasses the

meaning of life.

Do what you love, and

all good things will come.

Even if it’s in a traveling,

period-correct tin can.

lawn, all you need to do is

apply an organic fertilizer

four times per year, and

apply corn gluten in winter,

spring and fall to prevent

weeds. It prevents weeds

from growth but doesn’t kill

what weeds you do have.

Corn gluten also has its

own bacteria, so it prevents

many diseases. By applying

at the beginning for each

season, you prevent many

weeds from growing since it

will take time to get the soil

properly functioning.

I also would aerate the

lawn once or twice a year.

Your garden should know

what to do, or you can hire

someone to come do it for

you. What they do is run

a machine that digs little

round plugs into the lawn.

Then, rake up the plugs.

Then, sprinkle rock dust

lightly and add a fine compost

over the grass, filling

in the plugs. Then, give it a

proper watering but not so

much to wash it away.

You should apply a small

amount of gypsum throughout

the first year, then use

a small amount along with

the organic fertilizer. Gypsum

is 32-percent sulfur,

which is very important

for soil health. It also helps

that the soil’s pH is coming

down from the very high

alkaline pH we have here

in Malibu and most of

California. I would try to

get a blend of rock dust to

get a mineral blend. I would

spray monthly with Sea-90,

a trace mineral product

from ancient sea salt.

I know this sounds like

a lot to do, but that is what

gardeners should be doing

— and since it is your lawn

and your dog, you need to

tell them what you want

them to do.

You can buy the supplies

for them and have them

apply it. They should know

how to apply everything, as

it’s fundamental to gardening.

In the end, having a

beautiful organic, healthy

lawn is worth it!

On Common Ground

When, how to aid wildlife during wildfires

Dr. Stephany Lewis

DVM, California Wildlife Center

The 2017 California

wildfire season was

one of the most

destructive on record, with

a total of 9,133 fires burning

over 1.3 million acres,

according to the California

Department of Forestry

and Fire Protection.

While many people

were displaced from their

homes, many animals

were as well. Here at the

California Wildlife Center,

we may see a few patients

every year that have been

directly impacted by

wildfires, and we also get

many calls from the public

asking what they should

do to help animals that

may have been affected by

the fires.

First, it is important to

understand that while wildfires

may be worsening

due to human impact and

climate change, it is still

a natural environmental

process that all our native

animals have evolved with.

Birds will instinctively fly

away from the flames and

smoke, mammals will also

flee, and some amphibians

and invertebrates may burrow

into the soil to hide.

Of course, young animals

may not be able to escape,

many bird nests and eggs

may be destroyed, and

even the healthiest animal

This rabbit was among patients California Wildlife Center

received following a fire.

wildfire.

might not be able to outrun

the faster-moving fires.

After a fire, displaced

animals may need to spend

more time searching for

food, water and shelter,

and some may find it

difficult to adjust. Some

animals, however, may

benefit from fires; many

firefighters have reported

seeing predators like

hawks hunt small animals

as they are fleeing from the

fire, taking advantage of

the distraction and larger

concentration of their prey

in a single location.

So, what can you do to

help animals whose homes

may have been destroyed

by fire? Unfortunately, not

very much. Advice circulating

the internet last year

encouraged people to leave

out buckets of water for

displaced wildlife; however,

this is very unlikely

to help most animals.

The best thing may be

to let these animals figure

things out on their own;

they’ve been doing it for

generations, after all. Even

if you see an animal who

appears to be in imminent

danger near flames, we

do not recommend you

attempt to rescue that

animal, for a few reasons.

The first is that you may be

putting yourself in harm’s

way! Second, all wildlife

perceives humans as predators

so, although you may

be trying to rescue that

animal, it will still perceive

you as a threat, and you

may accidentally chase

that animal further into the

flames.

If you do find an animal

that is injured, by fire or

otherwise, and you can

easily catch it without

putting yourself in danger,

there are a few things you

can do.

Please call us at the California

Wildlife Center, or

call another local wildlife

rehabilitation center, for

advice on how to capture

and transport that particular

species. If you can’t get

the animal to a licensed

wildlife rehabilitation

center immediately, please

keep it secured in a box or

pet carrier, in a dark quiet

place, and do not offer it

any food or water. Just

about any wild animal

can survive for 24 hours

without food or water,

and sometimes offering

an inappropriate diet can

cause more harm than not

offering any food at all.

Please keep contact with

the animal to a minimum

to reduce stress.

Here’s to wishing all of

us, including our wildlife

neighbors, get through this

year’s fire season as safely

as possible.

On Common Ground is a

monthly column written by

various California Wildlife

Center employees. CWC, a

nonprofit located in Calabasas,

cares for injured wildlife

in Malibu and beyond.

I like to tell myself that

is I know I use my cellphone

far too much, and

it’s often not for the best.

My phone’s notifications

I all too often find myself

it’s always seemingly

Meanwhile, my computer

has open browser tabs

for Facebook and Twitter

one for MalibuSurfside

community event called

ScreenBreak in which

residents were encouraged

to unplug and unwind

by instead taking part

in enriching and varied

seemed to make it easy for

attendees to forget what

they were “missing” out

the truth is we don’t need

Malibu equestrian hits her stride

Gudegast named

It started with a horse

named Leone.

Leone is a dark bay, a

dark brown horse with a

black mane and tail. At 13

years of age, he’s nearly as

old as the girl who claimed

him: an on-again off-again

equestrian rider from Malibu

named Tatiana Gudegast.

Gudegast, 14, had been

riding since she was 6

years old, but hadn’t taken

to it fully. Without her own

horse, it’d been difficult to

fall in love with the sport.

That is, until she found her

other half. This summer,

Pat Mora’s inspiring

Sept. 30.

Tickets, priced starting

Gudegast began leasing

Leone from his owner, a

woman named Rose Sullivan,

from Oregon. One day

at a time, Gudegast began

to get to know Leone, and

vice versa.

“I discovered what he

was capable of and he discovered

what I could do as

well,” Gudegast said.

Their relationship was

still in the feeling out

stages when she entered

the Gold Coast July equestrian

competition, held at

the L.A. Equestrian Center

at Griffith Park. Gudegast

had never competed at this

level, and never with a fully

grown horse.

“I had to breathe because

I definitely was really nervous,”

Gudegast said. “But,

as soon as I had completed

my first round I was comfortable.”

On the Thursday eve of

the event, riders arrived

their surroundings. Then,

on Friday, Saturday and

Sunday, the events began.

“When you go out, you

memorize your course and

it’s all about speed,” Gudegast

said. “So, you have to

get in the optimum time and

also make sure you don’t

knock down any rails because

then you’ll get faults.”

Gudegast promised that

it’s harder than it looks.

A rider has to control the

horse. They have to keep a

good stride and pace, and

study the distance before a

jump. A horse who doesn’t

trust its owner can refuse to

jump and throw everything

off.

“I believe that ‘Tomás

meshed. After a good

showing, Gudegast waited

to hear where she had

placed in all of her events.

She heard nothing. So,

Gudegast wandered into

the judge’s tent and took a

look at the standings.

She was thrilled to see

that she’d placed first in all

of her events. But, turning

the page, she saw the bigger

shock: she’d been named

“That was the moment I

experience.”

Ever since she met Leone,

Gudegast has been

hooked. She’s been training

with Laura Kotimäki-Hurd,

who also is based out of

Malibu, since March.

“I’ve taught a few kids

that are around her age

group,” Kotimäki-Hurd

said. “Everybody is great

in their own ways, but Tatiana

is one of the ones who

wants to really get better. I

young people because it

speaks about following your

dreams, about using your

imagination, the power of

reading books, and making

new friends,” said Playwright

José Cruz González,

who wrote the play in partnership

with Childsplay

Theatre in Tempe, Arizona.

While creating the play,

González researched the life

of Tomás Rivera, contacted

his widow and brother and

even visited the Tomás Rivera

Library at the University

of California at Riverside.

“As I dug into the story

really enjoy teaching her.”

The sky is the limit for

Gudegast, who plans to

continue entering bigger

events. Astride Leone,

she’s ready to see just how

good she can be.

“I love the idea of taking

care of an animal and

just knowing that you have

a companion,” Gudegast

said. “I love the challenge, I

love the adrenaline. It’s just

something that fills me with

joy, every day.”

Shoppers give puppies some love in Malibu

Artisans, Malibu

Colony Company aid

pair of dog rescues

Barbara Burke

Freelance Reporter

Four-legged friends drew

foot traffic Saturday, Sept.

22, outside of The Malibu

Colony Company.

Inside the longtime Malibu

store, there was more

where that came from, with

jewelers and artisans banding

together to support Noah’s

Bark Dog Rescue and

Adopt-A-Rover Rescue.

“Malibu is full of dog

lovers, which makes it the

perfect place for a rescue

event,” said Tisha Medevic,

general manager of

The Malibu Colony Company.

“We adore dogs and

are thrilled to help make a

difference for such an important

cause and these two

rescues do the hard work

daily going into shelters and

saving lives.”

Shoppers surveyed necklaces,

earrings and custom

dog leashes and collars,

knowing that 20 percent of

the sales would benefit the

rescue charities.

The event was a shining

example of creative forces

gathering to aid those in

need. This time, the beneficiaries

of the buyers’ benevolence

were shining examples

of survival.

Wolf, a Chihuahua mix,

was found at an abandoned

house with no water on an

intensely hot day. Nearby

sat Rogue, a Shepherd-Lab

mix who was hit by a car.

Although a surgeon could

not salvage her injured leg,

they successfully operated

on her hip, and she is healing.

Several other dogs — all

of which were looking for

forever home— visited with

attendees.

Scott Ryan and Cheryl

Fritz adopted a dog named

Agave from Rover Rescue.

Ryan shared that a pup

they adopted from Rover

Rescue 14 years ago recently

passed away.

Artisan partners who

shared some of the day’s

proceeds included Lisa

Artist Cindy Short, of the Laughing Dog Art Studio, holds

a portrait of “Buddha,” a rescue, as she sits in front of her

Laughing Dog Story Bus. Various artisans participated in

the Saturday, Sept. 22, fundraiser at The Malibu Colony

Company. Suzy Demeter/22nd Century Media

Carrier Designs. Carrier, a

Malibuite, creates luxury

dog collars.

“My pet collars are handmade

in America and some

have inlaid Swarovski crystals,

while others feature

skeletons,” Carrier said.

“They’re an extension of

items in my collection and

these pieces recognize that

dogs are so important to

their owners.”

Malibuite Ben Hogestyn’s

handmade leather leashes

were displayed alongside

the works of Zorica of Malibu

and Malibu local Denise

James.

“This is a fantastic

event and we shopped and

shopped and shopped,” said

Mora Piccione, of Malibu.

“The dogs’ stories are so

powerful and I wish that I

could take them all home.”

Marca Kaufer, who donated

to a dog’s dental bills,

agreed.

“I thought the items in

the store were lovely as always,”

she said.

A placard displayed by

Rover Rescue quantified

how expensive the dogs’

medical bills can be. One

dog’s bronchitis medication

bill cost $1,000; another’s

seizure medication and

hospital visits total $3,000.

That’s also before the nonprofits

house and feed the

dogs and prepare them for

adoption.

“We are extraordinarily

honored to benefit from

the generosity of the owners

and employees of The

Malibu Colony, and the artisans

and the shoppers,” said

Shelly Gomez, executive

director of Noah’s Bark and

acting director of Rover’s

Rescue.

Artisan Kathleen Sleigh

has a line called Darsana,

a term derived from Sanskrit,

meaning to be beheld

in love, while beholding in

love. The 14K pieces feature

an eye on one side and

a mirror on the other.

“We love our dogs and

the brand is aimed at giving

back to the world,” Sleigh

said. “I love to make jewelry

that reflects love and

beauty back to the world.”

The artisans were delighted

to be a part of the event.

“I always want my sales

proceeds to give back because

it makes me feel good

and I feel it is something

that can help other people,”

jeweler Amy Y said.

Lisa Nik, another jewelry

designer, agreed.

“Animal support is critical

for all of us to help the

cause and support the boutique

experience in general,”

she said.

Author Maria Crowley

brought Oliver, the subject

of her book “Oliver the

Schmoodle.”

Cindy Short brought her

Laughing Dog Story Bus .

With the help of both The

Malibu Colony, an involved

Malibu vendor for 24 years,

and some generous artisans,

the dogs’ chances at a happily

ever after are closer to

coming to fruition.

Fostering a shared appreciation

Malibuite highlights

snippets of her culture

through local events

Barbara Burke, Freelance Reporter

Malibu resident Marianne Bema is a

long way from her native Cameroon,

a country at the junction of West and

Central Africa, but reminders of her

roots are always well within reach.

Indeed, the country in which she

was raised is at the heart of her nonprofit

organization, Bantu Arts Atelier

For Kids, through which she aims to

share her rich culture via arts instruction,

dance and cuisine.

Hers is a proud lineage stemming

from Batoufam, Cameroon, and from

her mother’s village of Batoum.

“The mother’s village and culture is

so important to recognize and honor,”

Bema told Malibu Surfside News. “I

love to share my culture with children

to help them prepare for good global

citizenship.”

Hers also is a story augmented by

her experiences in Germany, where

she attended post-secondary school

and became an airline hostess for Lufthansa

Airlines. Hers is an immigrant

story. Hers is an American story.

Through her local presentations,

Bema is intent on providing both

youths and adults with opportunities

to stretch their minds, to learn lovely

dances, to sing intriguing songs, to try

new foods, to learn by doing and, importantly,

to share stories full of heritage

and humor — the communal currencies

of our shared humanity.

Surfside News was treated to an explanation

of baskets, masks and attires,

all proudly shared by Bema.

She explained that she recently gave

a workshop about the Bantu Ndebele

fertility doll, which derives from a rich

and fascinating tradition.

“The fertility doll is made in secret

for a bride by the grandmother and is

ritually presented to her when she enters

her net hut after the wedding ceremony,”

she said.

As she displayed the traditional doll,

Bema noted that she made a companion

for it.

“See, one traditional doll is black,

one white,” she said. “This simple

thing can help children learn not to be

racist; we are all one.”

A basic lesson a la the Golden Rule,

graciously relayed and displayed.

Next, Bema displayed an intricate,

vibrant basket.

“This lovely basket is something

that a bride makes for her father-inlaw

and creating it is difficult and timeintensive

because the bride must first

pick a lot of grasses for the interior of

the basket and then she must carefully

weave it,” she explained.

Bema went on to display her African

masks, rich in texture and gleaming in

presentation.

On Sept. 30, adults interested in

learning more about making such

masks can attend Bema’s African

wooden mask painting workshop in

Calabasas, at which she will set up

an exemplar of a Cameroon village

and participants can use their fingers,

chicken feathers or paint brushes to

learn ancient mask design techniques.

Attendees also will sample African

cuisine and wines. To RSVP, email

bantuartsatelier@gmail.com.

Next month, on Oct. 13 and 14,

Bema also is to be at the all-ages Thousand

Oaks Fine Arts Fest at Thousand

Oaks Civic Arts Plaza (2100 Thousand

Oaks Boulevard). For more information,

visit www.calfineartsfests.com.

In Malibu and beyond, Bema is happy

to share her culture.

Calabasas Mayor Fred Gaines was

impressed by Bema’s presentation.

“This is a beautiful program offering

children exposure to African art projects,

music and dance, and it is wonderful

for the community,” he said.

Calabasas and other communities

also have hosted Bema for author’s

events for her 2017 book, “Nguni

Stands Up to Cure the Bully: Finding

Strength in One Voice.” The tale

features a hero, an albino village boy

in Cameroon who is subjected to mistreatment

by the local bully. The victim

does not recoil in horror. Rather, he

summons his courage to surmount obstacles

and prevail. In doing so, Nguni,

like Bema, fashions peace out of peril

and, in the process, tells a tale of harmony

and cultural sensitivity.

Marlène Didierjean, a French teacher

at Calabasas High School, appreciated

Bema sharing her story and culture

with her students.

“My high school students were

mesmerized and transported to a new

world through artifacts, songs, anecdotes,

art and storytelling,” Didierjean

said. “Her message of unity through

cultural diversity and awareness is one

that needs to be propagated — she is

a true cultural ambassador filled with

positive energy.”

Elmquist entered a rehab

consecutive shutout thanks

to a 64th-minute goal by

Hailey Stenberg.

Pepperdine closed out

non-conference play at 5-5

(four of the five losses were

to teams currently nationally

ranked), and handed

UCSB (7-3) its first home

loss of the season.

The Waves dominated

a scoreless first half, outshooting

the Gauchos 9-1

and putting six of their shots

on target. The second half

evened up a little bit more

(the shot count ended at

18-4), though senior goalkeeper

Brielle Preece only

needed to make one crucial

save in the 53rd minute.

After Stenberg, a junior

forward, put the Waves

ahead, Pepperdine had a

chance to double the lead

less than two minutes later

but saw a penalty kick saved

by the UCSB goalkeeper.

But the Waves’ defense was

up to the task the rest of the

way as the squad recorded

its fifth shutout of the year.

The week prior, the

Waves took care of preseason

favorites in both the

Mountain West and the Big

West, as Pepperdine went

on the road Sept. 14 to defeat

San Diego State 1-0

before coming home Sept.

16 to beat UC Irvine 2-0.

Joelle Anderson had the

game-winning goal in both

matches, while Isabel Nelson

scored her first career

goal against the Anteaters.

The Waves outshot their

opponents by a total of 24-

10. Devyn Gilfoy, playing

in her first game in a year,

had the game-winning assist

at SDSU. Trinity Watson

assisted on both goals

vs. UCI.

WOMEN’S SOCCER

Preece in running for yet

another honor

Senior goalkeeper Brielle

Preece, of the Pepperdine

women’s soccer team, has

been named to the Senior

CLASS Award’s 30-member

candidate list.

To be eligible for the

award, a student-athlete

must be classified as an

NCAA Division I senior and

have notable achievements

in four areas of excellence:

community, classroom,

character and competition.

The list is to be narrowed

to 10 finalists later this season,

and fans will be able to

vote on the finalists.

Preece earned West Coast

Conference Goalkeeper of

the Year honors last season

after ranking third in the

nation in shutouts (14) and

seventh in goals-against average

(0.42), while setting

school records in both. She

also made the United Soccer

Coaches All-West Region

second team and the

All-WCC first team, while

helping the Waves to a 15-

3-3 record, the WCC title, a

spot in the second round of

the NCAA Tournament and

a final national ranking of

No. 16.

She currently ranks fourth

all-time at Pepperdine with

17 solo shutouts.

A psychology major, she

has earned WCC Commissioner’s

Honor Roll

“bronze” honors and Pepperdine

Scholar-Athlete status

each of the last four years,

and she made WCC All-Academic

honorable mention

for the fall 2017 season. She

was a member of the Waves

Leadership Council last year

and was part of several community

service events.

MEN’S WATER POLO

UC Santa Barbara 16,

Pepperdine 14

The Waves fought hard in

a shootout with No. 5 UC

Santa Barbara at Raleigh

Runnels Memorial Pool on

Thursday, Sept. 20, eventually

falling 16-14 after the

second overtime period.

Freshman Curtis Jarvis

had a season-high five goals

for the Waves.

The Waves (6-4) outscored

the Gauchos (12-3)

in the first half, 7-6, and

fought hard in a very physical

matchup.

Pepperdine got the first

goal on the board when

Mate Toth scored in the first

minutes of the game. UC

Santa Barbara then scored

three unanswered goals before

Balazs Kosa scored,

followed by Sam Paur, to

tie the game back at three.

Jarvis scored his first of five

goals soon after to give the

Waves a 4-3 lead before the

Gauchos equalized to end

the first quarter locked at

four goals.

Pepperdine struck first in

the second quarter, getting

back-to-back goals from

Chris Dilworth and Jarvis

to take a 6-4 lead. The Gauchos

scored twice before

Jarvis completed his hat

trick to give the Waves a 7-6

lead going into half time.

After the half, the Waves

and Gauchos went back-andforth

in the third, with the

game never getting to more

than a goal lead for either

side. The Waves got goals

from Jarvis, Sean Ferrari and

George Mooney, including a

five-meter penalty conversion

as time expired in the

third, giving the Waves an

11-10 lead after three.

Ferrari and Jarvis scored

in the final period to give the

Waves a 13-12 lead, but the

Gauchos scored with 1:19

left in regulation to force

overtime, locked at 13.

In the first overtime period,

the Waves got their lone

goal from Dilworth, but the

Gauchos answered with two

more to take a 15-14 lead

into the final period, where

they scored once more to

take the game.

MEN’S GOLF

Three picked for preseason

All-WCC team

The Pepperdine men’s

golf team was picked to repeat

as WCC champions

by a vote of the league’s

coaches, while Clay Feagler,

Joshua McCarthy and Sahith

Theegala were named to the

preseason All-WCC team.

The Waves were a unanimous

choice, receiving eight

of the nine first-place votes

(coaches were not allowed

to vote for their own team).

Last season, Pepperdine set

a WCC Championships record

with a winning score

of 26-under at Carlton Oaks

Golf Club for the 19th league

title in program history.

Theegala, who is heading

into his senior year, is already

a three-time All-WCC

first team selection as well

as a two-time All-American.

Feagler and McCarthy,

who are both juniors, earned

All-WCC first team status

each of their first two seasons.

Feagler also was a

medalist at the 2018 WCC

Championships, while Mc-

Carthy was an individual

qualifier for the 2018 NCAA

Championships.

Stepping out of his comfort zone

Lang, a longtime

goalie, finds new

home in the Sharks’

field this year

Ryan Flynn

Freelance Reporter

Harry Lang has always

been in goal.

His water polo career

dates back to the fifth grade

and, ever since then, he’s

played almost exclusively

with his back to the net. He

was a goalie in youth water

polo, then in high school,

where he started varsity as

both a sophomore and junior

for a strong program

that made the playoffs both

those years.

It’s all about to change.

Lang and coach Hayden

Goldberg came to an

agreement this summer,

for the good of the team,

that Lang would be better

served putting points on

the board rather than keeping

them off. The team’s

need for a sweet-shooting

lefty, along with faith in

Lang’s replacement in the

goal is what led them to

make this unique outsidethe-box

choice.

Goldberg has been

head coach for scarcely a

month, and already he’s

shaking things up.

“It’s really helped our

team because we have a

solid goalie and now we

have a solid offense,”

Goldberg said.

It was a summer of

change for the Sharks.

Goldberg had been the assistant

to longtime head

coach Mike Mulligan,

but this year the two have

switched roles, which

Goldberg called “an honor.”

“I just have the title over

my head now and I get to

get yelled at by parents

a little bit more if I don’t

play their kids,” Goldberg

joked.

Summer also was when

he saw what his team

was capable of. Lang had

played a bit of field during

club season, at least

enough to get down the

fundamentals. Goldberg

posed the idea to him of

possibly playing field, so

they split Lang’s time between

the two spots during

the summer.

“He really shined in our

first summer game, and

when I offered him to go

in the goal for the rest of

that game he wanted to

stay in the field,” Goldberg

said.

The advantage of using

a left-hander on one side

of the pool is obvious. It

makes for an easier, more

natural shot or pass. Last

year, the Sharks had two

lefties: Ryder Sturgess and

Seamus Harrington, both

of whom have graduated.

Putting Lang, a lefty, on

that side has diversified the

Sharks’ offense.

“I’ve played field before

so I have all the fundamentals,”

Lang said.

“I’m a strong shot. I’m left

handed so most of that has

come pretty easily, but just

making decisions on certain

passes has been the

biggest challenge.”

Lang is a Malibu native.

Originally, football was

the sport he keyed in on,

but his parents, like many,

Harry Lang steals a ball from a Crespi player during a Sept. 5 game. Photos by Dave Teel/22nd Century Media

didn’t like the idea of tackle

football. Lang’s aunt

was the one who coaxed

him into water polo as a

pre-teen.

“She basically forced me

into it,” Lang said. “She

wouldn’t take no for an answer.”

Making the switch from

the goal to the field would

not be possible without

having a strong replacement

at goalie waiting in

the wings. Chris Rucker

Jensen, a junior, has been

training with Lang for as

long as he’s been playing

water polo. Both Goldberg

and Lang expressed confidence

in him to fill in.

“I wouldn’t have done

this if I didn’t have the utmost

confidence in Chris,

and I really think that he

can become even better

than me,” Lang said.

Chris Rucker Jensen is settling in as the Sharks’ new goalie after coach Hayden

Goldberg made the decision to move Harry Lang into the field this year.

As of press time, the

Sharks are off to an 8-2

start and are looking to

better the last two seasons,

when they made the playoffs

but lost both times in

the first round.

“We jell really well together

as a team and I

think we have a big shot

of doing some great things

this year,” Lang said.

Pepperdine men’s volleyball

squad reunites in Malibu

Submitted by Pepperdine

University

Imagine The Difference You Can Make

DONATE YOUR CAR

1-800-598-4102

Members of Pepperdine’s 1978 NCAA Men’s Volleyball

Championship-winning team recently gathered to reflect

on their successes. Pepperdine Athletics

Pepperdine’s 1978 NCAA

Men’s Volleyball Championship-winning

team recently

came back to Malibu

to gather and reminisce over

what had transpired 40 years

ago and what has transpired

in the meantime.

The 1978 title was Pepperdine’s

first of nine overall

and the first of five men’s

volleyball crowns. In 1978,

the team had 13 players, two

coaches and one trainer.

“Each aspect of the week

was special and for me,”

said Head Coach Emeritus

Marv Dunphy. “Forty years

went by in a flash and these

guys all turned out so well.

I’m proud of what they did

on the court and even more

so who they are as people ...

so proud.”

During the week of Sept.

10, eight players: Rod Wilde,

Mike Blanchard, Tom

Beard, Gary Cunitz, Jay

Anderson, Jay Iranon, Mark

Rigg and Brian Ehlers,

along with Dunphy, former

assistant coach Gary Sato,

former athletic trainer Keith

McFarland and former Director

of Athletics Wayne

Wright, came together.

Along with members of

the ’78 team were other Pepperdine

men’s volleyball

alumni, families and friends,

totaling roughly 100.

“It was a special week for

Pepperdine men’s volleyball

and myself,” Dunphy

said. “To start with Keith

McFarland, AKA Keith the

Trainer, invited the 1978

National Championship

team to his house boat on

Lake Powell and a wonderful

bunch took him up on his

offer, including me.”

While there, after taking

the toys out on the water,

all would sit during meals

and give updates on current

daily lives and families.

“The lake, the rocks, the

mountains, the canyons, the

jet skis and the food were

all exceptional but by far

the quality time spent with

the crew was the highlight,”

Dunphy said. “Some of the

guys had not seen each other

for decades.”

Those who gathered in

Heritage Hall amidst the

12 players, coaches and

staff, shared photos, videos

and stories from one of the

most impactful memories of

their lives. Each player was

prompted by Dunphy to

write a letter to their younger

selves. Those letters were

read aloud at the gathering

by one of their teammates.

The weekend closed on

Sept. 16, when 48 members

of the group went to play in

the annual Ehlers’ Cup Golf

Tournament and continue

the festivities.

plays offensive tackle and defensive tackle

for Malibu Sharks football.

What do you enjoy most about the

game of football?

Hitting the guy who has the ball and the

brotherhood that comes with [the sport].

How have you most improved from

last year to this one?

My conditioning. We worked really hard

this offseason on building stamina and

strength, and now I am able to start and

play an entire ballgame on both sides of

the ball.

What are your goals this year?

For the entire team to work as one so we

can make the playoffs this year and [establish]

a standard for what Malibu football

has the potential to be.

What do you like about playing for

coach Terry Shorten and his staff?

He’s an amazing coach, not only does

the entire coaching staff teach us how to

play football, but also lessons we will need

in our futures.

What are your plans after high

school?

I plan to play football through college as

I study business.

I heard that you are involved in

advocating for improved programs

at MHS as well as getting a new

scoreboard for the field. What

makes you so passionate about

these projects?

I took part in a student government trip

where students from our district got to go

up to Sacramento to learn more about the

Photo Submitted

government and how the state is run. When

I was up there I spoke with Malibu’s district

leader and we talked about improving

many different things in the school, with

the scoreboard being one of them. It’s our

senior year now and it would be amazing if

we could leave the school with making it a

better place.

Where in the world would you most

like to travel?

All over Europe.

What would be your dream job?

Running my own company in the financial

sector.

What do you like about living in

Malibu?

The beach.

What mindset does it take to be a

good offensive lineman?

You need to want to dominate the guy

lined up in front of you every single snap.
