Great white shark allegedly

behind attack of sea lion

CWC warns public

following incident

offshore of Malibu

Lauren Coughlin, Editor

California Wildlife Center

is urging the public to heed

potential warnings from

lifeguards and to avoid going

into the water alone after

a California sea lion died

Thursday, July 4, following

what appears to be a great

white shark bite.

Fireworks dazzle onlookers in

Paradise Cove, Malibu Colony

Barbara Burke

Freelance Reporter

Throughout town, Malibuites

capped off their

Fourth of July with great

splendor by enjoying fireworks.

The Los Angeles County

Fire Department’s Fire Prevention

Office issued two

permits for displays: one in

Malibu Colony and one in

Paradise Cove.

Spectators waited patiently

on the beach at

Paradise Cove, prompting

resident Jenny Bassett, who

is originally from Australia,

to make laudatory comments.

“I think this is the world’s

best beach,” she said. “I

love this community here

because everyone looks

after each other. I am not

American, but I feel proud

to be here in America.”

Witnessing a lovely sunset,

attendees gathered at a

The wildlife rescuers

were called to Pirates Cove

Beach, on the west side of

Point Dume, around 5:30

p.m. July 4, after an individual

spotted the ailing sea

lion. The good Samaritan

reportedly told CWC that

the female, juvenile sea lion

was “missing its tail,” according

to Heather Henderson,

CWC’s marine mammal

coordinator.

Henderson said the culprit

is believed to be a great

white shark “based on the

damage to the animal and

private home at the Malibu

Colony, waiting with anticipation

as sea mist graced

an incoming high tide and

surfers sought to catch a

final ride. Then, the lovely

spectacle began, with

bursts of light and energy.

“It’s like an atom splitting,”

attendee James

the size of the victim.”

“It’s likely that she was

bitten en route from the

Channel Islands,” Henderson

wrote in an email to

the Malibu Surfside News.

“It was not a fresh bite but

also obviously not old, as

she would have died. It’s

common that they travel between

the Islands and Point

Dume, so the bite could

have been anywhere along

the way.”

The sea lion was alive

when rescuers arrived but

was ultimately euthanized.

Nicholls said, amidst the

Malibu makes it a Fourth to remember

Annual traditions

carry on in Point

Dume, Malibu West

Barbara Burke

Freelance Reporter

From early morning until

late evening, Malibuites

gleefully celebrated the

Fourth of July with parades,

barbecues and, of

course, the piece de resistance:

fireworks.

This Independence Day

was different than years

past. The popular parade

at Point Dume was canceled

because of organizers’

concerns that ongoing

rebuilding, construction

and road closures would

impede the parade. Doug

Randall, parade organizer,

announced the decision

on the Facebook page belonging

to his company,

Malibu Custom Carts, stating:

“After talking to over

100 locals, it was agreed

to ‘take a break’ this year,

and let all of us find stability

and slowly move back

into our neighborhood as

best as we can with what

we went through and [are]

still going through.”

Nevertheless, some

residents of Point Dume

dressed in red, white and

blue, and had their own

parade-like celebration.

“We’re keeping the

spirit alive,” said Janet Friesen,

as she and her three

children drove around in

a festive golf cart. “We’re

having our own parade and

carrying on. It’s all about

tradition.”

Other Malibuites continued

on as they have in past

years, too. After gathering

in a circle to honor late

family and friends, participants

in an annual 5K ran a

race around the Point.

“We started the run four

years ago to honor Lydia

Stiegler’s mom, Vera Rink,

who immigrated to the

U.S. with hopes of achieving

the American dream,”

said Pamela Conley Ulich.

“This past year was hard

on so many friends who

lost their homes and on our

family, when my fatherin-law,

Dr. Konrad Ulich,

passed away in February.

He was also an immigrant

who followed his dream to

live in America.”

Stiegler explained how

the run started.

running a 5K in honor of late loved ones. Photos by Suzy Demeter/Surfside News

Janet Friesen and her children (left to right) Uma, Theo and Dusty ride their decorated

cart around Pount Dume. Though the community’s Fourth of July parade was canceled,

some residents kept the tradition going.

“Originally, Allison

McKenzie helped develop

the idea to have the race,”

she said. “As an immigrant,

my mom loved the Fourth

of July and she was very

proud to be an American,

so I also wanted to remember

her in a really positive

way.”

“Coming together to run

the streets of Point Dume

is an absolute honor and

blessing, and feeds our

souls and makes us all

stronger,” Conley Ulich

said.

Participant Suzy Forman

explained why the

run was important to her

family.

“My son Dylan Strickland

and I ran in memory of

my dad, Michael Forman,”

she said. “My dad always

encouraged people to follow

their dreams, and I’m

so fortunate to have had his

support, and I hope I will

be able to encourage others

to attain their goals. I will

miss him.”

Participant Linda Zielski

talked about honoring

her father, George “Skip”

Lambertson, who died in

January.

“My dad was a retired

firefighter and he was a

patriot who served in the

Army,” she said. “It’s a really

special day for me to

do this run because he was

also a descendent of Paul

Revere and a flag collector.

We have such a great community

in Malibu.”

Over in Malibu West, a

small parade of festively

decorated bikes, wagons

and golf carts kicked off

from the corner of Principio

and Paseo Canyon

drives.

Steve Arce remembers

riding the vintage motorbike

that his son Spencer

rode in the parade.

“I like the vintage bikes

better because they’re

cooler than the modern

ones and I like this red one

best of all,” Spencer said.

Eli and Liam Becker,

ages 5 and 7, respectively,

got in on the action by riding

their scooters.

“This parade is significant

because all the neighbors

come together and celebrate

our freedoms, and it

means a lot that we’re still

here,” Malibu West resident

Drew Newman said.

“We barely made it through

the fire as the house right

next to ours is gone and we

just got back into our home

to live full-time.”

For Magnolia Becker,

the parade was very significant.

“The parade means coming

home to Malibu,” she

said.

Tim Biglow agreed,

adding “We’ve planted

American flags at the top

of the mountains to salute

our neighbors and support

Malibu, and we have a new

Malibu West flag.”

Their decorating completed,

the merry group

started marching. With

scooters and skateboards,

bikes and trikes, fanfare

and fun, they proceeded

down the streets in gratitude,

peace and joy.

“The parade is a good

way to set a mark about just

how much your kid grows

each year,” Jack Marderosian

said.

“We’ve been in this


malibusurfsidenews.com news

Malibu surfside news | July 11, 2019 | 5

parade for close to 20

years,” Debbie Glovin

Rosenberg said.

Across town, Broad

Street Oyster Company

opened in the space where

Malibu Burger Company

recently shuttered.

“What a better day to

launch a new business than

the Fourth of July,” said

Chef Alex Jermasek. “We

will have a constantly changing

menu because we will be

serving fish from local fish

mongers and their catch will

depend upon various factors,

including weather and

water temperature.”

The venue will be open

from 11:30 a.m.-5 p.m. in

its beginning weeks.

From one side of Malibu

to the other, residents made

it a Fourth of July to remember.

Malibu CITY COUNCIL

Square footage limit shot down with 4-1 vote

Michele Willer-Allred

Freelance Reporter

A crowd filled Malibu

City Hall Monday, July

8, primarily to speak out

against a plan to limit total

developmental square footage,

and in favor of a proposed

skate park.

After lengthy public testimony,

the council voted

4-1, with Mayor Jefferson

Wagner dissenting, to remove

a TDSF ordinance

from the city’s work plan.

The council did direct

staff though to look into

development incentives on

projects that lower the impacts

on neighborhoods,

including those having to

do with size. That part of

the motion will come back

during the mid-year budget

process to give staff more

time for analysis.

The council’s decision

comes a week after the

Planning Commission narrowly

voted to recommend

an ordinance that, among

other things, would set the

maximum TDSF at 8,500

square feet on residential

properties, except in multifamily

zoning districts.

About 300 people attended

the four-hour Planning

Commission meeting on

July 1, with most opposing

a limit.

Mayor Pro Tem Karen

Farrer made the motion to

remove the item from the

work plan after reminding

the council that they recently

passed a budget that

set other priorities (public

safety, Woolsey Fire recovery

and school district

separation), and that the

council needed to “rededicate

ourselves and remind

ourselves of our three identified

priorities.”

Councilmember Mikke

Pierson agreed, saying,

“I’m completely opposed

to this proposal moving

forward.”

“It is ill-conceived and

ill-timed and should not

have come before us,” said

Pierson, who also apologized

to the community.

“I failed to see that what

I’d hope would be a community

discussion on the

subjects of mansionization

and community character

would turn into this,” Pierson

said.

Pierson noted that the

proposal to limit TDSF is

flawed because City officials

didn’t clarify their

goal —whether it was mansionization

or neighborhood

character they were

trying to fix, or issues of

rehabilitation facilities or

short-term rentals.

He also pointed out that

there was no solid data behind

the proposal, and no

mention of the financial

impact on property owners.

“This item is trying to

fit a square peg in a round

hole,” Pierson said. “Malibu

is not one thing. It is

a patchwork of different

neighborhoods and geography

and different lot sizes.”

Pierson did note that ignoring

neighborhood character

issues isn’t good either,

since land use issues

are important, and development

incentives are a good

thing.

“We can actually improve

the process, not make

it punitive,” he said.

As the lone dissenting

vote, Wagner said he

planned on spending his

remaining time in office

“defending the people who

have brought all these issues

forward to us, who

voted for myself and my

slate that I ran with, who

said we needed to do something

about the size of

homes in small areas and

small neighborhoods.”

The council also unanimously

voted in favor of

holding a special meeting

in August to consider a

temporary skateboard facility,

with the goal of eventually

approving a permanent

skate park.

“I’m all for anything that

can get a skate park on the

ground as quickly as possible,”

said Farrer, who

offered to raise and donate

money to get one going in

the city.

Councilmember Skylar

Peak made a motion to direct

staff to come back at

the special meeting with

options for a temporary

skate park as large as possible

at the 1.74-acre parcel

adjacent to Bluffs Park,

often referred to as the

Crummer’s lot, and include

above-ground ramps in the

plan. City staff also is to

come back with a timeline

and costs for an approximately

one-acre permanent

skate park at the Crummer

site.

Report mulls Woolsey’s impact on Malibu beaches’ water quality

Anastassia Kostin

Freelance Reporter

Heal the Bay, an environmental

nonprofit in Los

Angeles County, recently

released its annual Beach

Report Card, which has

provided beachgoers with

easy-to-understand information

about water quality

for over 29 years.

While the report evaluates

beaches all over California,

Washington and

Oregon, this year’s report

is important for evaluating

Malibu’s water quality following

increases in rainfall

and the Woolsey Fire, which

burned 96,949 acres of land.

Luke Ginger, water quality

scientist at Heal the Bay,

worked on the 2019 Beach

Report Card and acknowledged

that the news for

Malibu is not all bad.

“We’re not trying to

steer anyone away from

the beach,” Ginger said.

“Summer grades for Malibu

beaches are generally

pretty good. Most have an

A or B rating.”

The BRC uses an intuitive

A-to-F letter grading

system to provide water

quality information to the

public. Grades are based on

routine water quality sampling

conducted by county

health agencies, state agencies,

sanitation departments

and dischargers on the West

Coast.

Aside from the annual report,

Heal the Bay tests the

water quality of California’s

beaches weekly and

posts grades on its website.

The most recent ratings

show that Surfrider Beach

at Malibu Lagoon Beach

and Puerco State Beach

at Marie Canyon, for example,

have a grade of F,

while Will Rogers State

Beach, Big Rock Beach,

Carbon Beach and Las Tunas

County Beach all have

a grade of A+.

A and B grades both indicate

a low risk of contracting

an illness from

any of three fecal indicator

bacteria: total coliform, fecal

coliform (E. coli), and

Enterococcus species as a

result of being in the water,

according to Ginger.

The variability in grades

across Malibu beaches

could be because the watershed

at those beaches is

not as polluted or damaged

as the other ones, according

to Ginger.

The BRC evaluates the

impact of the Woolsey Fire

on the water quality of affected

beaches.

In general, the winter

grades for Malibu beaches

were substantially lower

post-fire, with only 57 percent

of the beaches receiving

A and B grades, while

100 percent of Malibu

beaches received A and B

grades in the year prior to

the fire, according to the

report.

“We decided to look into

the Woolsey Fire because

no one has done an in-depth

analysis of the effect of

wildfire on bacteria levels

in the ocean,” Ginger said.

In general, two main factors

of climate change affect

Malibu’s water quality:

rainfall and wildfires.

“Rain has a negative impact

because it carries pollution

into the land into the

water, and a lot of the climate

predictions in coastal

areas show more rainfall,”

Ginger said. “Wildfires are

also expected to increase

in frequency and size

across the state. Wildfires

exacerbate the rainfall issue

because they eliminate

ground cover and destroy

infrastructure.”

More research needs to

be done to evaluate the

long-term impacts of the

fire. The next step will be

a much bigger state-wide

analysis as soon as Heal the

Bay finds funding and organizations

to partner with,

according to Ginger.

While California generally

welcomes rain, Ginger

admits it is a complicated

issue.

“People welcome it,

but we’re still not doing

enough if you’re talking

about water availability,”

Ginger said. “We’re still

far behind where we need

to be. A lot of the water we

use goes into the ocean.”

And while Heal the Bay

focuses on the recreational

quality of water for humans,

things like bacteria,

pesticides, oils and other

chemicals in the water that

negatively impact water

Malibu lifeguards to be honored for aid amid Woolsey Fire

Lauren Coughlin, Editor

Lifeguards train all their

lives for worst-case scenarios;

last November, Malibu

saw one.

Eight months later, two

of Malibu’s own, Capt.

Ryan Addison and Ocean

Lifeguard Specialist Tim

Ryan, will receive the Distinguished

Service Award

for their efforts to protect

their neighbors’ homes during

the Woolsey Fire.

The Paradise Cove residents

are to be recognized

alongside fellow Los Angeles

County Fire Department

ocean lifeguards at the International

Surf Festival

Lifeguard Medal of Valor

Dinner July 31 in Redondo

Beach. Awards are given

to those who have demonstrated

“extraordinary and

exemplary bravery in the

line of duty,” according to

ISF.

Ryan was working at the

Zuma Lifeguard Headquarters

on the night the fire

began. There, he listened

to the radio and received

calls from members of

the public who were seeking

more information on

the fire. Once Ryan’s shift

ended, he headed home to

start preparing his family

for what he knew could be

a monstrous fire.

Addison said he and his

neighbors did not know

the extent of the fire by

the time it neared Paradise

Cove, but he, Ryan and

several others joined up to

defend their neighborhood.

“[We] saw it coming and

heard all the propane tanks

exploding across the highway,”

Addison recalled.

The men got to work,

turning off gas at homes,

laying hoses and plotting

a potential escape route.

Paradise Cove remained

Addison

Ryan

largely populated, and

Ryan and Addison are credited

with saving hundreds

of mobile homes, including

their own.

“We were just kind of

one foot in front of the other,”

Ryan said. “[We were]

prepping the houses, getting

all the leaves and debris

away from the houses.”

Addison and Ryan recalled

how Tim Morris

secured an old-school fire

hose, giving the unofficial

crew a leg up on fighting

the fire and enabling them

to keep it from crossing

the highway. Had the blaze

continued on its path, Addison’s

house was one of the

first ones that would have

been engulfed, he shared.

“It would have been horrendous,”

Addison said.

The evening of Nov. 9

didn’t allow much sleep for

Addison or Ryan.

“We were basically just

running around and checking

on both corners of the

Cove,” Addison said.

Late in the evening, a

couple fire engines responded,

and Ryan left

to check on his dad and

brother’s houses. Around 1

a.m., Ryan returned home,

pulled his couch in front of

his window and closed his

eyes.

It didn’t last long.

Around 4:30 a.m., he

said, he awoke to find that

nearby trees were going up

in flames. The fire engines

were gone, so Ryan got

to work on extinguishing

hotspots.

“Through their knowledge

and selfless actions,

[Ryan and Addison] managed

to save hundreds of

mobile homes that were

threatened,” the release

from ISF states. “Additionally,

they bravely watched

over the community for

more than 24 hours.”

Once the bulk of the fire

fighting was behind them,

Ryan and Addison did not

rest. They began doing

welfare checks, and needed

supplies were delivered to

the community by boat.

“I was just doing what I

would do normally,” Addison

said.

Addison and Ryan have

25 and 29 years on the

job, respectively, and have

been “on and off partners”

through the years, Ryan

said.

While they are primarily

charged with safeguarding

beachgoers, Woolsey was

not the first fire the duo has

faced. In 2013, Addison

and Ryan worked to fight

a small fire at Point Dume

Club as firefighters responded

to a nearby brush

fire. That effort also earned

the pair a Distinguished

Service Award from ISF.

Addison previously

earned a Medal of Valor for

his response to a boat accident

on Colorado River.

Ryan also received a

Medal of Valor in 1996

for saving the life of a

beachgoer who became

entrapped in a sand hole at

Zuma Beach.

Addison and Ryan both

called this year’s honor

“humbling.”

Still, Addison said, after

seeing the widespread

devastation the fire caused,

he wishes they could have

done more.

“Our heart and soul is

in the community where I

grew up and work in, and

to be recognized for something

we did is nice; its a

nice feeling,” Ryan said.

Also being honored

Five individuals are to be

honored in addition to Addison

and Ryan.

Ocean Lifeguard Specialists

Shaun Gudmundsson,

Ruben Carmona and

Jon Van Duinwyk are to

receive Medals of Valor.

Last August, Gudmundsson

and Carmona assisted

in the rescue of two fishermen

from a rocky, remote

ledge below Inspiration

Point in Rancho Palos

Verdes.

“The fishermen had become

trapped in the rising

tide and huge surf, generated

from a hurricane off

Baja California,” ISF’s

press release details. “Exposing

themselves to extreme

ocean and nighttime

conditions, the successful

efforts of Gudmundsson

and Carmona saved the

men’s lives.”

Van Duinwyk is to receive

his honor for his “extremely

hazardous” rescue

of a 70-year-old man who

was trapped in his sailboat

amid a storm, offshore

from Dockweiler Beach.

“Van Duinwyk risked

his life to enter the vessel,

extricate the elderly man

as the boat was breaking

apart in the 8-foot, shorepounding

waves,” ISF’s

release states, of the November

2018 effort. “Due

to Van Duinwyk’s actions,

the victim not only survived,

but was treated for

only minor injuries. Just

minutes after the successful

rescue, the sailboat

now on the sand was completely

destroyed by the

huge surf.”

Cove against the Woolsey Fire. Addison is to receive an

honor for his aid to the community. photo submitted

Ocean Lifeguard Dick

Douglas, who has been on

the job for more than 50

years and remains an active

ocean lifeguard, will receive

the Lifetime Achievement

Award. Douglas is the

father of three LA County

lifeguards (Capt. Dan

Douglas and lifeguards

Craig and Todd Douglas)

and is known for upgrading

the Junior Lifeguard

Program in the 1970s and

1980s.

Ocean Lifeguard Bill

Krauss, who recently retired

after 48 years, will receive

the inaugural Junior

Lifeguard Award.

“He is most notably recognized

for his success

in teaching, encouraging,

mentoring and introducing

hundreds of junior lifeguards

and students into

the LA County Lifeguards

family,” ISF’s press release

states.

The Medal of Valor Dinner

kicks off the 57th annual

International Surf Festival,

occurring July 31-Aug.

4 in Hermosa Beach.

“It is our honor to recognize

these individuals who

demonstrated bravery and a

selfless commitment to the

safety of beachgoers of Los

Angeles County,” said Rob

McGowan, president of

the ISF, in a press release.

“They rose to the challenge,

and their heroism is

inspirational and worthy of

recognition.”

News Briefs

Earthquakes reportedly felt

by some in Malibu

Officials from the United

States Geological Survey

warned of a possibility of

one or more aftershocks

up to one week after the

6.4-magnitude earthquake

that struck Thursday, July 4,

near Ridgecrest.

One day later, that prediction

came true as a 7.1-magnitude

event struck the same

area around 8:19 p.m. Friday,

July 5.

The intensity of the quake

defied the odds, as USGS

originally estimated a magnitude

7 or higher earthquake

at 1 in 100.

Smaller earthquakes were

deemed “likely.”

“The chance of an earthquake

of magnitude 3 or

higher was estimated at

[more than] 99 percent, and

it is most likely that as few

as 57 or as many as 110

such earthquakes may occur

in the case that the sequence

is re-invigorated by

a larger aftershock,” USGS

notes.

Following both events,

Malibuites took to social

media, with several residents

saying they felt the

tremblers. One video reportedly

taken in Malibu

on the Fourth of July shows

a store’s shelving visibly

quivering.

“The number of aftershocks

will drop off over

time, but a large aftershock

can increase the numbers

again, temporarily,” USGS

explained.

According to the California

Earthquake Authority,

Thursday’s event was

the strongest earthquake in

the region since the 1999

Hector Mine earthquake.

The American Red

Cross Los Angeles Region

opened a shelter in

Ridgecrest following the

earthquake, and had provided

service to 340 individuals

as of Sunday,

July 7.

Officials including the

Red Cross and Los Angeles

County Fire Department

used the event as an opportunity

to remind residents

to be prepared by knowing

evacuation routes, holding

drills and making/checking

emergency kits.

For more tips, visit www.

lacounty.gov/emergency/

earthquake-preparedness/.

No injuries, damage

reported in Piuma rockslide

Two large boulders were

found in Piuma Road,

roughly 2 miles west of

Rambla Pacifico Street,

around 3 p.m. July 2.

The discovery was made

by law enforcement officials

who were out on patrol, according

to Malibu/Lost

Hills Deputy Nick Bonelli.

Weston Haver, public information

officer at California

Highway Patrol - West

Valley said the roadway was

reopened around 5:15 p.m.

“There was no damage to

houses and no injuries,” Haver

stated.

Prang to receive national

achievement awards

The Office of Los Angeles

County Assessor Jeff Prang,

which covers

Malibu,

is to receive

two 2019

achievement

awards from

the National

Association

of Counties.

Prang

The awards center on the

office’s development of cutting-edge

information technology

systems.

To enhance accuracy

and efficiency, Assessor IT

experts designed and developed

the Mobile Assets

Tracking System and Train

Tracks‚ the latter being a

collaborative effort between

assessor staff and students

from the University of

Southern California.

“As a public agency, it

is imperative that we continually

identify potential

efficiencies; but we must

also ensure we maintain

the expertise which is at the

core of our mission to value

property in a fair and accurate

manner,” Prang states

in the press release. “These

awards highlight the ability

of the dedicated, hard-working

professionals of the Los

Angeles County Assessor’s

Office to fulfill both goals.

And that, in turn, allows us

to better serve the residents

and businesses of Malibu.”

In 2017, the assessed value

of residential, commercial

and industrial properties in

Malibu was about $15.7 billion,

according to Prang’s office.

A year later, it increased

to about $16.9 billion, the release

states, which translates

to additional tax revenues of

about $1.1 million.

Further, the deployment

of MATS in 2018 provided

the office with a real-time

asset inventory mechanism,

replacing a paper-based

system. It was developed

in-house and has produced

significant time savings because

of its user-friendly

design, mobile capability,

real-time reporting, and improved

audit compliance.

Train Tracks also was developed

by the assessor’s

office. It was first implemented

as a pilot in February

2018 to track required

education and training for

licensed appraisers.

The tool now includes

over 630 appraisers and

saves more than 1,280 personnel

hours, translating to

an estimated $70,000 in annual

cost savings.

City commits to renewable

electricity use in own facilities

Submitted by the City of

Malibu

All City facilities are to

run on 100-percent renewable

electricity generated

from non-polluting, clean

and renewable sources such

as solar, wind, and hydroelectric

power.

The decision was finalized

at the City Council’s

June 24 meeting as part of

the approval of the fiscal

year 2019-2020 budget.

“Malibu is proud to be

a leader in environmental

protection policies, and

we continued that tradition

when we approved 100 percent

clean energy for City

facilities,” Mayor Jefferson

“Zuma Jay” Wagner said.

“All cities, counties and

states should come together

In Memoriam

Trudeau-Street remembered

for his ‘beautiful heart,’ more

Memorial service

planned for July 13

Barbara Burke

Freelance Reporter

Malibu’s Thomas Christopher

Trudeau-Street, lovingly

called “Tommi,” died

June 22 of congestive heart

failure. He was 55.

“A black hole has formed

in our community that will

bring us closer together

as Tommi has wished all

along,” friend Don Pitts

said. “Words that come to

mind whenever I think of

Tommi include: loving,

steadfast, loyal, sacrificial,

creative, accepting, encouraging,

forgiving, and, most

of all, friend.”

Trudeau-Street was born

in Bourne, Massachusetts,

on Nov. 19, 1963 to Frank

and Carol Trudeau. He

was raised in large part by

his maternal grandparents,

Alexia and Harley Street, in

Denver, Colorado, said his

niece, Amber Jacquez. Jacquez

said Tommi cherished

his childhood and the time

he spent with his extended

family there.

The Streets moved to

Farmington, New Mexico,

where Tommi was elected

president of his senior class

and graduated Farmington

High School in 1982.

“Tommi had a flare for

the dramatic, and credited

his drama teacher, Chuck

Ramsey, with saving his

life,” Jacquez said. “The

depth of that sentiment

was only realized when 22

years later, Tom took on his

greatest role and donated a

kidney, in a life-saving act,

to Chuck Ramsey.”

He was privileged to

have married his great love,

Emily Rascoe, in 1995, she

added, stating: “Emily and

Tom shared eight years

exploring the world, with

Thailand being a highlight

of his life and Tom attended

classes at the renowned

Second City Comedy Club,

in Chicago. Saddened by

the end of their marriage,

Tom followed his heart to

Los Angeles in 2004.”

Jacquez shared that Tom

“starred in a few film and

TV roles and he adored his

Harley Davidson, acting

on the stage and his life in

Malibu.” It was there that

he discovered his artistic

talents, began painting and

developed an eye for photography,

Jacquez said,

noting that Tom was very

loving and cared for others,

including two special

people: Maria Altmann and

Jud Bogard. He took care

of Altmann until her death.

Trudeau-Street was preceded

in death by his grandparents,

Alexia and Harley

Street and Gwendolyn

Trudeau; his mother, Carol

Zwiener; father, Frank

Trudeau; sister Dominique

Jacquez; brother, Richard

Street; and nephew, John

Don’t Panic, It’s Organic

Keeping bark beetles at bay organically

The bark beetle is the

effect.

So, what is the

cause? Trace mineral

deficiency.

Sick soil produces sick

trees. Reduced water flow

means reduced mineral

flow. Reduced minerals are

followed by an increase

in pests and diseases. Sick

soil is soil without the

proper microbes, and that

equals trees/plants lacking

in certain trace minerals.

What is more important

to a tree? Nitrogen or

minerals? Chemical fertilizer

companies believe it

is nitrogen, so they make

sure their fertilizers are all

high nitrogen based.

Urea in nature is less

than 2-percent nitrogen,

while manmade urea is

Malibu Newsstand 23717 ½ Malibu Rd. in the Colony Shopping Center | 310.456.1519 | Malibu.newsstand@gmail.com

45-percent nitrogen! Yes,

nitrogen makes things

grow fast, but they are

stressed out and weak.

So, the cause here is

a complex one — one

entirely caused by humans.

The drought caused us to

use the ground water which

trees have relied upon during

droughts, and the lack

of water in the right place

also is causing stress. Top

that off with the fact we

have destroyed the topsoil.

Adding chemical fertilizer

to make that lawn of yours

lush and green has produced

a dead soil environment

— one that is stressing

out the trees. Recent

rains help, but do nothing

to bring the soil back to life.

High stress always results

in pests and is followed by

diseases. All diseases are

soilborne. They are in the

soil but under control by

the beneficial bacteria. Kill

the good guys, and the bad

guys move in!

It is better to underwater

than to overwater, and

better to use a drip system

for trees than overhead

sprinklers.

Many folks have trees

surrounded by lawns. They

water the lawn almost

daily (many do four or five

minutes a day) while trees

prefer once a week if you

have bad soil, or twice a

month if you have good

soil. The high nitrogen

fertilizer that your gardener

uses on the lawn, while you

may think it is good for the

lawn (it isn’t), it certainly is

not good for the trees.

Do you remember a few

months ago, after all that

rain we had, when many

trees toppled over? That

would not have happened

if the trees were deeply

watered. Their roots would

have been deep.

By just watering your

lawn and not the tree, the

tree will die sooner.

You should have two

watering systems: one

for the lawn that uses an

overhead sprinkler, and one

for the trees, which should

get anywhere from half an

hour to two hours drip once

or twice a month.

It is not a good idea to

have a lawn around your

trees unless the lawn is

organically fertilized. Then,

it is perfect, and the watering

for the lawn will not

adversely affect the tree.

Organic lawn fertilizers

come with soil microbes

and some trace minerals.

Organic lawns require

less weekly watering than

chemically grown lawns.

Trees also require different

organic fertilization

than lawns do. They do not

like high nitrogen. High

nitrogen actually inhibits

mineral intake and absorption.

Organic lawn fertilizers

are not high nitrogen.

Pay attention to your

trees’ needs and your trees

will be much happier for it.

But, what do you do if

you think there is something

wrong with your trees?

First, find out from a tree

arborist. They always use

chemical pesticides to kill

the borer and prevent them

from coming back.

You all know I do not

support chemical use; I use

organic materials instead.

I would ask the arborist

if they can do it without

chemicals. Tell the arborist

you want to use Orange

oil like Orange TKO or

XT2000. XT2000 is used

on termites and also is

registered for tree borer

control, and you must be

a pest control operator to

use it. OrangeTKO is an

organic orange oil that

is injected with a needle

through the bored hole. The

oil will kill the borer and its

eggs on contact.

You also can spray the

orange oil onto the trunk

of the tree to prevent more

attacks. I use 50 percent

Orange TKO, and 50 percent

mineral oil and I spray

that on the lower part of the

trunk. You can also paint it

on. You should do this once

and then look for signs of

any new bore holes with

dust showing up. If that

happens, treat those also.

How are trees being

watered? Install tree vents.

I use clay drain pipes about

1-foot deep. Turn the drip on

and see how fast the water

goes down the pipe. When it

starts to overflow, that’s the

length of time to water. You

will increase this over time.

Inside the vents, add rock

dust, compost and mulch.

Add an organic fertilizer

with microbes.

Foliar spray the tree

monthly with a mineral-rich,

bacterial-rich compost tea.

aftershock on July 5.

With the Woolsey

Fire still permeating just

about every corner of this

newspaper, it’s difficult to

ask anyone to think of yet

another disaster, but it also

would be ignorant not to do

so. So, this week, I’d like

to highlight a few disaster

preparedness tips, courtesy

of the American Red Cross.

When it comes to

preparation, the Red Cross

recommends three actions:

getting an emergency kit,

making an emergency plan,

and knowing how to stay

informed.

For the kit, it is recommended

to pack supplies for

at least three days; recommended

items include a

gallon of water per person

per day, non-perishable

food, a flashlight and extra

batteries, a first aid kit,

are located in California

and on the western grid.

CPA energy for residential

customers in Malibu

began in February 2019

and non-residential customers

in May 2019. Customers

are automatically

enrolled to receive 50 percent

of their power supply

from renewable sources

at the same cost as SCE,

which consists of only 34

percent renewable electricity.

Customers can also

choose to get 36 percent

of their energy from renewable

sources and get a

1-percent discount or 100

percent renewable electricity

and pay an additional

9 percent. Customers also

may opt out. To change a

rate option, visit cleanpow

medications and copies of

important documents.

As far as an emergency

plan, Red Cross asks individuals

to consider what to

do in the event that they are

separated from their family

during an emergency. Also

consider pets in any plans.

Over the years, Malibu

has hosted several earthquake

drills. Those who

have been through those

know the motions, but

here’s a brief refresher.

Officials advise individuals

to avoid moving around,

and to drop, cover and hold

on. Protect the head and

torso, officials state, and get

under a desk or table if you

are at one. If in bed, stay

put, curl up and hold on

while protecting your head

with a pillow, Red Cross

advises. It is best to stay

indoors until shaking stops.

Anyone who must leave

a building following an

earthquake is urged to use

eralliance.org/rate-options/

or call (888) 585-3788.

Some customers may

have seen their rates go up,

however, that is not because

of the City joining the CPA.

To see how a bill compares

with SCE, check out the

rate comparison calculator

at cleanpoweralliance.

org/rate-options/residential-rates/.

For commercial

rates, go to cleanpoweral

liance.org/rate-options/

commercial-rates/. Customers

who have enjoyed

special rates or programs

in the past, such as CARE,

FERA, Medical Baseline,

Level Pay or Summer Discounts,

will still have access

to them. CPA also will

develop new programs for

local customers.

the stairs, as power outages

and aftershocks can impact

elevators.

If an earthquake hits

while you are outdoors, it

is best to find a clear spot

away from buildings, power

lines, trees and streetlights,

and drop to the ground, Red

Cross states.

Anyone in a vehicle is

urged to pull over and stop,

while avoiding bridges,

overpasses and power lines

if possible. Leave your

seatbelt fastened and stay in

the car. If a power line falls

on your vehicle, stay in the

car and wait for assistance.

As Malibu is well aware,

mountainous areas are

at risk for rockslides and

landslides following earthquakes.

Be alert.

Kristy Apana-Bashant

and her husband, Greg

Bashant, have rallied.

Though the couple lost

their barbecue establishment

on Kanan to the Woolsey

Fire, they remained dedicated

to supporting Malibu.

In the days following the

fire, they fed people at no

cost from Kristy’s Restaurant,

their venue in Trancas

Country Market that survived

the inferno.

On June 14, the couple

opened Roadhouse at

Zuma across the lawn from

Kristy’s. With their new

restaurant, they’re ready

to write a new chapter in

their professional lives and

to support efforts to rebuild

western Malibu.

The venue is bedecked

with beautiful photographs

by local Steven Lippman,

works full of expansive

waves that seem to draw the

ocean into the venue.

“It’s Malibu-Hawaiian

beach casual,” said Kristy,

a native of the Aloha state.

“It’s great to-go food for

the beach or to take home

and enjoy, and many of the

dishes are those that a surfer

likes to eat.”

The Roadhouse at Zuma is

laid-back and meant to be enjoyed

by all, Bashant added,

noting that menu items range

from $5 to $18. For now, the

restaurant is open from 11

a.m.-4 p.m. every day, except

Fridays, when it is open from

11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

hoping will be in about 30

days,” Bashant said. “We

may also be adding delivery

service as well.”

Options include the half

roasted chicken with baked

beans and Hawaiian macaroni

salad ($17). The chicken

is well-seasoned, the

baked beans flavorful and

filling, and the macaroni

salad is not too sweet.

“You’ve got to try the barbecue

pork ribs,” Bashant

said, noting that the sauce is

mild and robust.

Bashant also plugged the

corn bread, which he said

“is to die for.”

Diners also may consider

enjoying a canned Hawaiian

Sun drink ($3). The beverages

are tasty and fun, with

flavors such as Lilikoi passion,

green tea lychee and

guava nectar.

The Korean drumsticks

($16), served with traditional

Hawaiian fried rice and

macaroni salad, is another

winning entree. Sweet sauces

infuse the meat, topped

with scallions, to hit the spot

on a hot summer day.

For those wanting a lighter

meal, the Somen noodle

salad ($14) provides interesting

textures and tastes.

Customers can add a chicken

breast for $6, fish for $7

or avocado for $3.

A crispy tofu and rice

dish ($12), made with ginger

scallion sauce, also is

featured.

Hot dogs, chili, vegan

chili, pizza and traditional

milkshakes round out the

restaurant’s offerings.

New exhibit pays homage to local landscapes

Artists’ reception

scheduled for this

Saturday, July 13

Barbara Burke, Freelance Reporter

“The inspiration is endless,”

stated artist Sandra Hall, whose oil

on linen work, “Visiting Malibu”

is featured in Santa Monica Mountains

& Malibu Miniatures, a new

show at King Gillette Ranch.

Hall is one of several area artists

featured in the exhibit —

sponsored by California Art Club

members of the Malibu Ventura

County Chapter — which is to remain

on display through Aug. 30.

A free artists’ reception is slated

for 1-3 p.m. Saturday, July 13.

“Painting is the art of seeing

and sharing that insight through

our own unique expression,” Hall

opined.

With hues of azure, Hall’s “Visiting

Malibu” invites viewers to

take note of its delicate details.

Hall captures the fleeting moment

of one gull’s descending flight, its

large wings outstretched as it hovers

over another gull, enjoying a

momentary respite.

“I painted ‘Visiting Malibu’ at

Leo Carrillo State Beach, up on the

rocks by Tower 3, which is one of

my favorite places to paint because

it never disappoints,” Hall said.

“There’s such a variety offered in

every direction — coastal landscapes

south and north, mountains

in the east, and crashing waves and

sea life to the west. Then, add the

ever-changing sunlight and shadows

from sunrise to sunset and the

atmosphere of the seasons, fog,

wind, clouds or a cloudless sky —

birds, animals, people.”

Artist Jane Hilton submitted

works of structures in the Santa

Monicas and on the Malibu coast.

Her works depicting the Adamson

House and a Temescal Canyon

Cabin capture the synergy between

architecture and landscape

in Malibu.

Robert Impellizzeri’s “Crashing Waves, Leo Carrillo” is shown.

“I love the beauty, color, light

and endless inspiration of the Santa

Monica Mountains and Malibu,”

she said.

Ojai artist Dan Schultz considers

Leo Carrillo State Beach an

ideal spot to paint.

His work, “Rugged Shoreline,”

depicts dramatic viewpoints along

the Malibu coastline. Schultz, who

is the recipient of many awards for

his impressionistic paintings, discussed

the impressionist who most

influenced him: William Wendt,

an early California artist whose

subject matter, color palette and

stylization have inspired him.

“I believe that plein air painting

is hugely beneficial to the artist,”

Schultz said. “It helps one achieve

better color recognition, develop a

better understanding of how light

works in different situations, and

simplify his or her approach and

painting style.”

Robert Impellizzeri’s “Crashing

Waves, Leo Carrillo” and “Pacific

Sentinels,” which depicts a scene

at the end of Point Dume Beach,

also limn seascapes that inspire.

“I selected these works because

they are an expression of my great

love for the rocky cliffs of the Pacific

coastline and the deep and

churning blue waters of the Pacific

Ocean,” Impellizzeri said. “Malibu’s

coastline is special to me because

I feel a deep connection to

the Pacific Ocean and I feel compelled

to live close by and visit often

to paint.”

Artist Beverly Lazor’s “Malibu

Pier” captures Malibu’s iconic

symbol from a tranquil perspective.

“I have lived in Southern California

since I was 7, and my parents

always took the family on

drives up and down the coast and

through the Malibu mountains on

weekends,” Lazor said. “It is my

special go-to place when I need

to stop and contemplate on life. It

holds so many memories.”

Like many of the artists exhibiting

in the show, Lazor has been

influenced by impressionists.

“Monet, Van Gogh, Sorolla and

Zorn are a few favorites,” she

said. “I adore the use of beautiful

muted hues, the way the textural

brush strokes show off the hand

and personality of the artist in

their paintings. Painting alla prima,

the way wet paint can sit next

to and mix with other wet paint

on the canvas, is very intriguing

to me. Light seems to just bounce

over an image.”

Lisa Liang’s miniature work,

titled the “Mishe Mokwa Trail,”

intrigues.

“Art, nature and movement are

very important to me,” Liang said.

“In painting it, I wanted to capture

The expansiveness of the

Marian Fortunati also submitted

two miniature works, both striking

for their sense of tranquility.

“I submitted ‘Matador and the

I liked this painting because the

people add scale and interest to the

Gallery art walk offers eclectic sampling

Barbara Burke

Freelance Reporter

Tommy Hollenstein showcases his artistic process

during the Malibu art walk on June 29. The event

involved art galleries in Malibu Country Mart, Malibu

Village and Malibu Lumber Yard. Barbara Burke/Surfside

news

Throngs of locals and

tourists enjoyed Malibu’s

first gallery art walk on June

29.

The event featured five

galleries in Malibu Country

Mart, Malibu Village and

Malibu Lumber Yard.

Many attendees began the

evening at Tracy Park Gallery

in the Country Mart,

where 16 Malibu artists exhibited

their works.

“Leave it to Tracy Park,

Malibu’s grand dame of

the arts, to initiate the first

annual Malibu art walk,”

stated Eamon Harrington, of

Red Ladder Gallery, which

also participated in the

event. “Tracy’s dedication

to local artists goes back

years. I first met her when

she was working at Dawn

and Bobby Walker’s gallery

Tops, which remains to

this day the coolest gallery I

have ever seen.”

At Tops, Harrington added,

Park’s keen eye and deep

understanding of the artistic

“Those qualities, coupled

with her huge generosity of

spirit, make her the quintessential

curator,” Harrington

said. “As soon as Tracy

learned that she would be

opening her newest gallery

in the Country Mart,

she was making plans to

unite all of Malibu’s locally

owned galleries in a night of

artistic celebration. Tracy is

a force of nature, and every

artist in town owes her a big

thank you.”

art walk

From Page 20

“I make my jewelry here,

and it’s such a positive thing

to have the people of Malibu

gather and see my work

and all the other artists’

pieces,” Eric Silva said, as

he sat amidst his collection

of pieces that merge industrial

and natural elements.

Glancing around at the

various exhibits, attendee

Rike Boomgaarden said,

“This house is full of good,

happy vibes.”

From the bright, breezy

photographs in Julie Ellerton’s

“Rhapsody Series”

and Catherine Malcolm-

Brickman’s “Parrots in

Palm,” to the gorgeous hues

of lupine blues and emeralds

in Emily Scher’s “Sea

Treasure” pieces,” many

of the artworks celebrated

Malibu’s majesty.

“I love it that tonight we

are acknowledging and celebrating

the many talented

artists in Malibu,” Stacy

Leib said. “I’m very grateful

they came out to exhibit

here.”

John Varvatos Malibu

collaborated with online

gallery Rock Paper Photo to

exhibit a collection of striking

images of musicians.

The art walk served as the

inaugural catering event for

Cliff Diver, which is to open

at the old Tavern 1 on Pacific

Coast Highway.

As guests sampled their

cuisine and cocktails, many

went around the corner to

Canvas Malibu where the

contemporary works of

Malibu native Nick Simon

(aka Cantstopgoodboy)

are on display. There, they

dined on Mediterranean cuisine

compliments of Taverna

Tony.

At Red Ladder Gallery

in Malibu Village, guests

admired Harrington’s

large, colorful works. Harrington’s

pieces share his

point of view regarding local,

national and international

current events.

Surfing Cowboys also

rode into town just in time

to join in the event. Located

across from First

Bank in Malibu Village, the

store, owned by Donna and

Wayne Gunther, touts itself

as the “defenders of the California

dream.”

There was a vibrant energy

at the Malibu art walk,

artist Joe McDougall observed.

“The energy was both

incredibly inspiring and uplifting

as we saw the turnout

of locals coming together to

support one another again,

which is a vital part of the

healing process,” he said.

Brian Bowen Smith Gallery

in the Malibu Lumber

Yard showcased 60 works

by area artists, including

Kathryn Brolin.

Artist Tommy Hollenstein

is, like many in

Malibu, undaunted, despite

challenging circumstances.

He uses his wheelchair

wheels to make intriguing,

modern artworks and many

attendees stopped in awe,

admiring his live painting

throughout the night.

Chamber of Commerce

CEO Barbara Bruderlin said

there have been positive developments

in Malibu’s arts

community since she held a

three-day art fair at the three

shopping centers in Malibu

in 2017.

“There are now more galleries

in Malibu,” she said.

“It’s so wonderful to see the

galleries flourish.”

Addressing the comprehensive

nature of the art

walk and what it meant for

Malibu, attendee John Watkin

said: “We’re surrounded

by high-end stores in these

shopping areas, which is

not what Malibu is about,

and it’s wonderful to be reminded

just how powerful

the creative forces of Malibu

are in this city, and how

lucky we are to live here.”

Pepperdine Athletics

Dowling returns as Waves women’s basketball coach

Former Pepperdine women’s

basketball assistant coach Kristen

Dowling, who has had a successful

run at Claremont-Mudd-

Scripps the past seven years, will

return to Malibu as the eighth head

coach in program history, the university

announced July 3.

“Pepperdine Athletics exists to

further our institution’s Christian

mission, to provide an enriching,

rewarding experience for our student-athletes

that results in graduation,

and to compete for championships,”

Pepperdine Director of

Athletics Dr. Steve Potts states in

a press release. “Kristen Dowling

gives us a perfect fit for those objectives.

She brings a strong Christian

faith, a true commitment to our

student-athlete’s well-being as a Phi

Beta Kappa graduate of the University

of Redlands, and is dedicated

to building a championship-caliber

women’s basketball program. We

are excited to have Kristen leading

our women’s basketball program

for many years to come.”

Dowling posted a 147-46 (.762)

record as the head coach of the

Division-III Athenas, including

six straight 20-win seasons and

at least a share of six consecutive

SCIAC regular-season championships.

Her squads won the SCIAC

Tournament four consecutive

years between 2014 and 2017, and

advanced to the NCAA Tournament

each time.

“I am elated to lead the Pepperdine

women’s basketball program,”

Dowling states in the release. “ ...

Pepperdine’s Christian mission

and commitment to academic and

athletic excellence are core to who

I am, and makes this an absolute

dream come true. I am excited to

get to know the current team, compete

with purpose and build upon

their success. The future of Pepperdine

women’s basketball is incredibly

bright.

“I want to extend a heartfelt

thank you to CMS Athletics, President

Chodosh, Mike Sutton and

my former players and coaches for

believing in me and their tireless

dedication to the program. A sincere

thank you to the entire CMS

community for their genuine support

and friendship. Finally, a special

thank you to my family and

friends for their years of encouragement,

support and love.”

Her first team at Claremont-

Mudd-Scripps posted a 9-16 record

in 2012-13, but she turned

the program around quickly and

recorded a school-record 24 wins

in 2013-14. The Athenas hit 24

two more times since then and had

at least 23 wins in five of the last

six seasons. She led Claremont-

Mudd-Scripps to its first NCAA

Tournament victory in 2016, and

the Athenas again won a firstround

game in 2017.

Dowling was named SCIAC

Coach of the Year in 2015. Over

seven years, she posted a 93-19

(.830) record in conference play,

with a remarkable 88-8 (.917)

record the past six seasons. Her

student-athletes won two SCIAC

Player of the Year awards and

were named to the All-SCIAC first

team 10 times.

This will be Dowling’s third

stint at Pepperdine. She was a

graduate assistant and academic

advisor during the 2006-07 and

2007-08 seasons, then returned as

an assistant coach for the 2010-11

and 2011-12 campaigns, all under

former coach Julie Rousseau. The

Waves went 32-27 during the 2011

and 2012 seasons, and placed third

in the West Coast Conference in

2011 and advanced to the WNIT.

In between those two stays at

Pepperdine, Dowling worked as

an assistant coach at CSU Bakersfield

for the 2008-09 and 2009-10

seasons. The Roadrunners went

35-23 those two years and made

their first-ever Division I postseason

appearance in the 2010 Women’s

Basketball Invitational.

Dowling is a 2004 Phi Beta

Kappa graduate of the University

of Redlands, earning a bachelor’s

degree in Spanish with a minor in

physical education. As a studentathlete,

she helped the Bulldogs to

their second SCIAC title in 2004

and a WBCA Class Act Achievement

Award.

Dowling also earned a master’s

degree from Pepperdine in educational

technology in 2007.

She is a graduate of Nike’s “So

You Want to Be a Coach” program,

as well as the NCAA Women’s

Coaches Academy. In 2018,

she served as an on-court coach

for the USA Basketball U17 World

Cup Team Trials.

Dowling takes over a program

that was on the rise under Delisha

Milton-Jones. The Waves

went 22-12 last season, tied for

third place in the WCC (the best

showing since 2011), made the

WCC Tournament semifinals (for

the first time since 2010) and won

the program’s two first postseason

games in the modern era, making

it to the Round of 16 in the WNIT.

The Waves are slated to return

three starters and seven letterwinners,

including four of the top five

scorers. Returners account for 50

percent of last year’s scoring.

SMMUSD reacts to death of alumnus, MLB pitcher

Skaggs was found

unresponsive in his Texas

hotel room on July 1

Lauren Coughlin, Editor

The Santa Monica-Malibu Unified

School District community is

mourning the unexpected death of

Los Angeles Angels pitcher Tyler

Skaggs.

The 27-year-old Santa Monica

High School graduate died July

1. According to a press release

from the Southlake Police Department,

Skaggs was found unresponsive

in his room at a Texas

Hilton hotel at 2:18 p.m.; he was

pronounced dead at the scene. No

foul play was suspected.

Skaggs, a 2009 graduate of

Samohi, also attended SM-

MUSD’s Roosevelt Elementary

School and Lincoln Middle

School. A statement from Superintendent

Ben Drati said SMMUSD

was “devastated to hear the news.”

This past January, Skaggs

joined various athletes and celebrities

at Pepperdine University to

play in the California Strong celebrity

softball game which raised

funds to support those impacted

by the shooting at Borderline Bar

and Grill as well as the Camp and

Woolsey fires.

California Strong — a nonprofit

effort formed by Los Angeles

Rams quarterback Jared Goff

and Milwaukee Brewers players

Christian Yelich, Ryan Braun and

Mike Moustakas — commented

on the news.

“The CA Strong family mourns

the loss of our good friend Tyler

Skaggs,” the organization stated in

a Twitter post. “Tyler was a supporter

of a number of charitable

causes and always wanted to make

other people’s lives better. Our

thoughts and prayers go out to his

wife, Carli, his family, teammates,

and his many friends and fans.”

Skaggs’ mother, Debbie, is a

physical education teacher with

SMMUSD, and previously served

as the Santa Monica High School

girls softball coach, the district

noted.

“Tyler continued to make visits

to our schools the past several

years to speak with students and

we proudly watched his ascent

in professional baseball, along

with his family,” Drati’s statement

said. “ ... Our thoughts

and prayers are with his family,

friends and fans during this difficult

time.”

Goudzwaard happy

to keep softball in life

Michal Dwojak

Assistant Editor

Amelia Goudzwaard

knew she wouldn’t be a

Division-I athlete when

she graduated Malibu High

School, but she wanted to

find a way to keep softball

in her life.

The Malibu alumna has

played the sport for 10

years, with it helping shape

the person she is today. So

while she wasn’t going to

play at the University of

Southern California, she

needed to find a way to

play.

That’s why Goudzwaard

was excited when

she found she could continue

to play the sport if

she makes the school’s

club team. While nothing

is certain yet, the potential

for another four years of

softball is important.

“I’m really excited to

play on the club team,”

Goudzwaard said. “It’s not

a guarantee, obviously, so

I think I realized after my

senior year how much I really

do like the sport and

how much the team means

to me and the friendships

you can make from

it and what it can teach

you.”

She had no idea what the

sport was and the impact

it would have in her life

when she started to play at

the age of 8. Goudzwaard

mentioned softball helped

her become a better leader

as she continued to play

the sport as she grew up

and went on through high

school. The game helped

her humble herself, realize

what it means to become a

better player, and nothing

was a better example than

her senior season.

The senior recovered

from an injury that forced

her junior-season numbers

to be lower than she wanted.

After working hard to

get back, Goudzwaard’s

offensive numbers exploded

and helped show how

her hard work paid off.

“It was incredibly important,”

Goudzwaard

said, of her rebound senior

season. “I was incredibly

proud of myself for the

way that I performed, not

only because I actually

did it, but I didn’t put so

much pressure on myself

and let whatever was going

to happen actually

happen.”

But Goudzwaard knew

she wanted to focus on her

studies when she arrives

on the USC campus. The

Los Angeles school was always

a goal for the Malibu

resident and a high priority

for the whole family. Once

she got that acceptance

package, she was filled

with joy because she realized

her dreams, not thinking

about whether softball

would be there.

“I didn’t think about it

too much because I knew

I didn’t want to play a D-I

sport because I didn’t want

to become a semiprofessional

athlete and stress

my body so much as well

as going to the STEM

field,” Goudzwaard said.

So while she prepares

for the rigor that USC will

present for her in the classroom,

Goudzwaard hopes

she will still have softball

to help guide her along

the way. Tryouts will take

place during the school

year and she’ll give it her

all like she did her last year

in Malibu.

Softball has always been

there, and, hopefully, it

will help her during the

next portion of her life.

“It’s really taught me

how to be humble and

how important positivity is

and what it also means to

be a leader,” Goudzwaard

said. “Without the sport, I

wouldn’t be the leader that

I am today.”

Malibu High School

students Liam Moore and

Maya Mellberg were part

of a winning effort June 23,

while playing in a Westside

Volleyball advanced-division

adult tournament in

Los Angeles.

Malibu High School volleyball

coach Derek Saenz

invited Moore and Mellberg,

believing that the two

were up to the challenge.

The team came away with

a 7-1, first-place finish.

“They played very well

explained. “Liam is developing

his passing and defense,

because in men’s he

is a very small outside hitter

at 5’10” and will need to

develop into a dominant defender.

So playing against

elite women on a women’s

net is good practice.”

Saenz said his “powerhouse”

“the one to beat,” as

Williams, King and Overton

can all touch 10 feet or higher.

Sharing the experience

with the MHS athletes was

important to Saenz, and he

hopes it helps inspire both

Sharks to “passionately pursue

being the best.”

“It’s a mindset that has

not been pushed in the past

and without this experience

it’s such an abstract thing to

want to go for, but hopefully

now with experiencing it

first-hand, it will be something

Saenz said.

In other news, Saenz

shared that Malibu High

scrimmages at 1 p.m.
