Wildlife rescuer highlights unusual trends

Barbara Burke

Freelance Reporter

“Something troublesome

is definitely going on in

the ocean,” said Heather

Henderson, marine mammal

stranding coordinator

for the California Wildlife

Center during a presentation

at the Malibu Library

on July 9.

Henderson discussed incidents

involving marine

animals stranding on beaches

in and near Malibu, and

some peculiar marine animal

behaviors in the area.

“We’ve had some unusual

marine mammal sightings

in the past year,” Henderson

said. “For instance,

we know that gray whales

migrate north from February

to April after spending

the winter in lagoons off

the coast of Mexico and

they have a pattern of hugging

the coast, so we are

used to seeing them very

close to shore at places

such as Westward Beach,

where the shelf is very

close to land. However,

we have been seeing them

at unusual places, such as

Carbon Beach and off of

Malibu Road and we will

have to conduct further

studies to figure out why.”

Usually, a mother gray

whale and her calf will

come close to shore because

the mother knows

that her young can fall

prey to orcas and sharks

in deeper waters, Henderson

explained, adding that

a mother often guides her

young near shore because

she is teaching her calf to

drag its face along the shelf

to filter feed.

Pinnipeds, such as seals

and sea lions, regularly

come out of the water, often

to sun or rest, Henderson

said.

“However, when you

see a cetacean, such as a

dolphin or a whale, on the

beach or in rocky areas near

the beach, that is a sign that

something is extremely

wrong and therefore, you

should immediately call us

so we can render aid.”

Henderson discussed

some troublesome statistics.

“We have seen a spike in

strandings of marine animals

since 2018,” she said.

“To date, we’ve had 170

strandings in 2019, and that

is very unusual.”

Moreover, the types of

animals that are stranding

are unusual, Henderson

said, noting that a Guadalupe

fur seal recently

beached, when officials had

not seen one in many years,

as did a pygmy whale and a

Risso’s dolphin.

“One troublesome trend

is that we are witnessing

more cetaceans washing up

on shore in very poor shape

or already dead,” she said.

“We do not know why and

we are trying to perform

post-mortem exams to

gather more data and obtain

some answers.”

Some strandings of animals

occur in predictable

patterns each year, Henderson

explained.

“For instance, seals give

birth at the end of December

and then, they only

nurse for approximately

one month, not allowing

time for the young to learn

much from their mothers,”

she said. “They are

good timekeepers and so

we know that beginning in

March, we will start to see

stranded seal pups that haul

out onto shore and need a

little help.”

As she spoke, Henderson

showed a picture of an

California Wildlife Center’s Heather Henderson, marine mammal stranding coordinator, shares information about

marine mammal rehabilitation and more at the Malibu Library on July 9. Stephanie Chaisson/Surfside News

emaciated seal, and the attendees

collectively sighed.

There was a happy ending

for the seal pup, Henderson

said.

“We knew it had some

chance to survive because

if you look closely at the

picture of the stranded

seal on the beach, you will

see that it had covered itself

with sand and they

do so to thermo-regulate,

so we knew it had a little

strength left because it did

that.”

Nature’s processes

sometimes cause marine

mammals to strand,

Henderson noted, as she

showed a picture of a

California sea lion that

most likely succumbed to

Domoic acid poisoning.

“Sea lions and other

cetaceans sometimes eat

shellfish and other fish that

are affected by the neurotoxin,

Domoic acid, which

blooms in algae in late

spring and makes cetaceans

dazed and confused and,

sometimes, might even

make them have seizures

or have seizure-like behaviors,”

Henderson said.

“Then, they will haul out

on the rocks and we try to

help them recover.”

Domoic acid poisoning is

prominent in adult females

because they are ingesting

a lot of fish before mating

season, she said.

If small cetaceans such

ADVANCED

HEARING AID

TECHNOLOGY

For Less Than $ 200

“I was amazed! Sounds I hadn’t heard

in years came back to me!”

— Don W., Sherman, TX

How can a hearing aid that costs

less than $ 200 be every bit as good as

one that sells for $2,250 or more?

The answer: Although tremendous

strides have been made in Advanced

Hearing Aid Technology, those cost

reductions have not been passed

on to you. Until now...

MDHearingAid ® uses the same kind of Advanced Hearing Aid Technology

incorporated into hearing aids that cost thousands more at a small fraction of

the price.

Over 300,000 satisfied MDHearingAid customers agree: High-quality, FDAregistered

hearing aids don’t have to cost a fortune. The fact is, you don’t need

to spend thousands for a hearing aid. MDHearingAid is a medical-grade

hearing aid offering sophistication and high performance, and works right out

of the box with no time-consuming “adjustment” appointments. You can

contact a licensed hearing specialist conveniently online or by phone — even

after your purchase at no cost. No other company provides such extensive

support. Now that you know...why pay more?

Can a Hearing Aid Delay or Prevent Alzheimer’s and Dementia?

A study by the National Institute on Aging suggests older individuals

with hearing loss are significantly more likely to develop Alzheimer’s and

dementia over time than those who retain their hearing. They

suggest that an intervention — such as a hearing aid — could delay or prevent

this by improving hearing!

Junior ranger program

provides food for thought

Children learn

about select birds’

eating habits

Suzy Demeter

Freelance Reporter

SPONSORED COLUMN

Malibu Welcomes Door To

Door Valet Cleaners

Door To Door Valet Cleaners is a family-owned business founded in 1989 with

a simple mission: to provide you with the most convenient and best quality

dry cleaning services.

With open and imaginative

minds, children took an

interactive look at some of

the food-foraging tactics of

the region’s avian inhabitants

during the latest session

of the Santa Monica

Mountains National Parks’

junior ranger program.

The Bird Beak Buffet

program was presented

Friday, July 12, by Ranger

Nico Ramirez at the Visitors

Center.

Ramirez introduced the

group to a discussion and

activity on how the different

shapes of beaks help birds

crack, tear, pluck, or scoop

their food.

Activity tables displayed

photos of birds and descriptions

of their method of

obtaining food, and a tool

to simulate how they get to

their food source.

The great blue heron,

with its long beak, can spear

fish, frogs and, surprisingly,

squirrels. Chopsticks and

clay fish were used to demonstrate

the technique. The

participants used the chopsticks

to pick up the “fish.”

Woodpeckers, meanwhile,

use their beaks as chisels on

tree limbs to pluck out insects.

To imitate the woodpeckers’

method, children

picked up skewers and tried

to spear clay “insects” from a

wood block with holes.

William Snyder enjoyed

the woodpecker display. He

learned that the bird’s spearlike

tongue helps scoop out

the insects.

Once the children made

their rounds, they were

given a chart and, with the

help of their parent, they

matched each birds’ photos

to a correlating plastic bird

skull. Clues to which bird

was which required them to

study the shape of the beak,

the size and the eye socket.

Olivia Dear found the owl

display most interesting.

Her brother James Dear

said the activity he enjoyed

was cracking seeds with pliers

since he learned small

birds like the black-headed

Grosbeak use their beaks in

a similar way.

Love of logistics, lobster drive young entrepreneur

College-bound Malibuite

receives scholarship

Lauren Coughlin, Editor

Despite being

surrounded by seafood

restaurants,

Malibu’s Hunter

Nelson could not

find the entree he

wanted on the local

level.

Nelson

The Malibu High

School graduate’s love for Maine

lobster — a familiar and beloved

aspect of his summertime visits

with his grandparents — inspired

him to become a young

entrepreneur.

“Once I’m set on something,

I really want to get it done,” he

said.

Three years ago, Nelson

founded Lobster Taxi, a business

that provides overnight shipping

of fresh Maine lobster and

other products, including crab

products, chowders and bisques,

Maine blueberry pie, Maine

whoopie pie and Maine salt water

taffy.

“I’ve always just been enthralled

in the way you can get

something from Place A to Place

B in 24 hours,” Nelson said.

Fast forward to present day, and

the 18-year-old is getting ready to

head off to college at Brandeis

University outside of Boston,

where he hopes to become a business

major. In his first semester,

he is to study abroad in London.

Further, he recently was selected

as the recipient of The Malibu

Association of Realtors’ Future

Leaders Scholarship, which, they

state, is given to “an outstanding,

graduating Malibu High School

senior who demonstrates a strong

entrepreneurial spirit.” MAR was

further impressed by Nelson’s

high-school accomplishments including

being the senior editor of

the yearbook, captain of the high

school varsity golf team, president

of the Republican Club, and

being on the Principal’s Honor

Roll with a 4.0 GPA for the whole

year.

Now, with college on the horizon,

Nelson admits he will have

to be a bit more hands off, but

Lobster Taxi, he hopes, will keep

on cruising thanks to his team in

Maine and the foundation he has

built.

“A lot of it’s running on its

own now thankfully,” he said.

“ ... We have a lot of repeating

customers.”

Nelson also said he hopes to

continue expanding the business

to offer more popular

products and seafood, with

Alaskan crab near the top of

his list.

Nelson prides himself on his

customer service — no small feat

considering he was often fielding

requests and addressing concerns

while in high school — and

his swift action, and he said he

plans to remain involved virtually

while abroad.

“I understand that you can’t

take care of everybody, but I try

my best to for sure,” he said.

RIGHT: Hunter Nelson (second

from right) poses with his

grandpa Carlisle Towery, his

sister Jade and his grandmother

Susan Deutsch at Malibu High

School’s graduation ceremony.

His summer visits with his

grandparents inspired him

to create Lobster Taxi, which

provides overnight shipment of

fresh Maine lobster nationwide.

At the end of the presentation,

each child received a junior ranger

pin and a junior ranger activity

booklet.

“Kids are usually excited seeing

a bird doing something,” Ramirez

said. “Birds are easy to observe

and can do things that are very

memorable.”

He mentioned seeing a bird of

prey with its catch, or a woodpecker

on a tree. He also said that

it inspires kids to “bring up stories.”

The National Park Service’s junior

ranger activities are open to

families and also are designed to

be self-guided.

Ranger Nico Ramirez holds a replica of a great blue heron skull.

Next week, junior rangers will

have a chance to learn about other

winged wonders: bees. That program,

which is to include activities

and a short hike, is scheduled

for 9-10:30 a.m. Friday, July 19, at

King Gillette Ranch (26876 Mulholland

Highway, Calabasas).

James Dear matches the skull shape to the correlating bird’s photo.

Malibu planning commission

Soho’s traffic, noise issues to return Sept. 3

Sound system,

offsite employee

parking OK’d

Michele Willer-Allred

Freelance Reporter

The Malibu Planning

Commission is giving Soho’s

Little Beach House extra

time to work out sound,

traffic and parking issues

that have been the subject

of neighbors’ complaints for

the past several years.

After a more than three

hour public hearing, the

Malibu Planning Commission

on Monday, July 15,

unanimously approved allowing

Soho House to test

an installed sound system

and get the blessing of the

community and City staff

before it returns for a Conditional

Use Permit Amendment

review by the Planning

Commission on Sept.

3. No amplified music will

be allowed.

The commission also

agreed that offsite parking at

The Enclave can be utilized

for employee parking (employees

will have stickers),

and that a planned on-site

valet system can be implemented.

A traffic study will

be conducted on the impact

of the new valet system, and

reviewed by the City engineer

before Sept. 3.

Soho House, located at

22716 Pacific Coast Highway,

is a social club for arts

and media professionals,

and features a sitting room,

bar, terrace, and dining

room. About a third of the

club is made up of Malibu

residents, though it is not

open to the public. About

100 employees work there,

with about 25 to 40 employees

on site per shift.

Soho House shares a parking

lot with Nobu restaurant,

which also has parking and

other issues to be addressed

at a separate meeting.

Richard Mollica, the

City’s assistant planning director,

said that over the past

couple of years, staff has

worked with Soho House

in an attempt to bring them

into conformance with recorded

violations regarding

music, parking and traffic,

which were brought up during

a hearing in February.

As a result, Mollica said

Soho House submitted a

Conditional Use Permit

amendment in an effort to

comply. This includes no

queuing on PCH of cars

looking to enter the parking

lot. They also suggested

moving the valet as far west

in the parking lot as possible

and stacking parking to allow

more cars on site.

Soho House also wants

to include amplified and

acoustic sound at the site.

Currently, they are prohibited

from having music indoors

or outdoors.

Soho House Attorney

Kenneth Ehrlich said the

club is taking responsibility

to correct noise issues,

and that they would like to

continue having music there

because it is an important

and complimentary part of

the business.

Residents are concerned

about music, saying they

want to maintain the community’s

peaceful ambiance.

“Any sort of noise that

obscures the [sounds of the]

waves, interrupts our sleep

and concentration and even

our own music, is really not

appropriate for Malibu,”

resident John Graham said.

Jeff Moore, president of

Corona Del Malibu Homeowners

Association, said

virtually all of the 21 homeowners

he represents as part

of the HOA “vehemently

oppose” the CUP amendment.

Moore said the sheriff’s

department doesn’t

respond to neighbors’ complaints

because it is a code

enforcement issue.

“The City is on notice

that they have a huge problem

and if they do nothing,

because we’ve complained

and not one thing has ever

been done to cure this situation

effectively, the City is

going to be liable for lack

of enforcement of their own

rules,” Moore said.

Some residents spoke

about the benefits of having

Soho House, saying it provides

a service for the arts

community.

Other residents spoke

about increased traffic on

PCH caused by Soho House

and Nobu.

Planning Commissioner

Chris Marx had concerns

with continuing to allow

employee parking at The

Enclave, since a lot of the

community input had to do

with concerns over valets

driving cars and parking

there.

The commission also

agreed that the valet traffic

circulation plan proposed

by Soho House can be put

into effect; the City engineer

will review it and bring

back findings on Sept. 3. If

it looks like it isn’t working,

Soho House representatives

agreed to look at working

with Nobu on a single valet

parking system.

Jennings supported the

motion, however, he added

that “it’s not the function of

this body to bless whatever

agreement is reached by affected

residents and applicants.

That’s not what we

do here.”

Assistant City Attorney

Trevor Rusin agreed, saying

Soho is “under no obligation

to work with the residents,

although it is encouraged by

the community.”

“We’re also under no obligation

to approve what they

come up with,” Mazza said.

“We have to review it.”

Offenders reportedly smash door, swipe $1,900 in cash from Malibu pizza place

Police responded to a

burglary call at D’Amores

Pizza, 22601 Pacific Coast

Highway, on June 25. The

front door was smashed

and at least $1,900 in cash

was taken. An employee

of a nearby store arrived

to work early in the morning

and noticed the damage

to the door, while another

employee of the same store

observed a red sedan driving

out of the parking lot.

Video surveillance showed

three suspects entering the

restaurant between 3:30

and 3:45 a.m., taking money

from the cash register

and an envelope from the

manager’s office.

June 25

• Two camera lenses

worth $2,000 each reportedly

were among items stolen

from a locked vehicle

parked at a residence on

PCH. The alleged victim

stated she went out of town

on June 23, and received a

call from a neighbor that

her vehicle had been broken

into. The window was

shattered.

• A $950 cashmere bag

reportedly was stolen from

Ranch At The Pier, 23000

PCH. On June 22, a female

came into the store, and an

employee noticed that she

was in the bag area for an

unusually long time. The

woman paid for a T-shirt

and a patch with a credit

card. After the woman left

the store, the employee noticed

a bag missing from

the display.

• A $500 rivet removal

tool reportedly was stolen

from a job site on the east

side Heathercliff Road. The

alleged victim stated that the

tool was stolen from inside

the bed of a company-owned

pickup truck. The job site is

surrounded by a chainlink

fence, but there were no

signs of forced entry.

• Fifteen women’s fur

coats totaling $150,000, a

$10,000 women’s designer

dress, and a $1,500 bottle of

champagne reportedly were

stolen from a residence on

Latigo Bay View Drive.

The house was damaged

during the Woolsey Fire

and is under construction.

The alleged victim stated

he wasn’t in the house between

June 21-24 when the

theft occurred. Various fingerprints

were found on the

stainless steel rods where

the clothing items were

hanging. A shattered garage

window was found on the

property. Entry is believed

to have been made through

an unsecured dog door.

Auciello extends equestrian enlightenment

Owner of My Best-

Self Coach shares

insight at Malibu

Chamber event

Barbara Burke

Freelance Reporter

Horses are intuitive

animals, often displaying

comforting sensitivity and

empathy, according to Liza

Auciello.

Auciello, a psychologist

and owner of My Best-

Self Coach, which offers

personal and professional

development coaching and

leadership retreats with

horses, spoke at a Malibu

Chamber of Commerce

Connections Breakfast at

Paradise Cove on July 10.

Equestrian sessions are

aimed at helping attendees

focus on empowering

themselves to take steps

toward a more fulfilling

life.

“The benefits of incorporating

horses into leadership

and individual coaching

sessions are that they

help people clarify their

strengths and growth opportunities,”

Auciello said.

“Horses mirror our leadership

style and our patterns

of communication — the

way that they respond allows

us to clearly see what

kind of outcomes our habitual

actions produce.”

“There are three components

of our coaching and

retreat models,” Auciello

explained. “The first component

is expanding selfawareness,

which helps

attendees understand their

patterns of communication

and behavior that either

help them achieve more

favorable outcomes or get

in their way of success. We

also focus on setting goals

and achievement standards

that help us to break

through to success.”

Auciello explained further.

“The final component

includes building a body

and mind that sustains the

change the person makes

and enables them to use

their thoughts and emotions

in a productive way,”

she said. “This leads to

good decision-making,

creativity and balance.”

“Using the horses in the

process sounds very cool,”

said Barbara Bruderlin,

CEO of the Malibu Chamber

of Commerce. “How

does it work exactly?”

Responding, Auciello

said: “Horses are amazing

facilitators! They let you

know pretty quickly how

effective your communication

is, what your boundaries

are like, how much

pressure you use in your

communication and being

near them brings people

a great sense of joy and

peace.”

“Learning with the horses

is by far the fastest way

to learn about yourself,”

she said. “Ultimately, we

want our program attendees

to achieve personal

freedom — freedom from

the expectations of others,

the negative beliefs

we have about ourselves

or the armor that we’ve

surrounded ourselves with

over the years to avoid getting

hurt.”

Relaxation management,

effective communication

and emotional ability are

foundational skills that underlie

My Best-Self Coach

programs.

“Progress can be made

even in one session,” Auciello

said. “We can begin to

Liza Auciello, owner of My Best-Self Coach, spoke to the Malibu Chamber of Commerce last week about her business’

equestrian sessions. Annalise Robbins

assess a person’s skill sets

and determine the actions a

person needs to take in order

to effectively address

any concerns he or she has

and we start building at

least two skills right away

to support his success.”

My Best-Self coaching

sessions are offered at a

private ranch in the Santa

Monica Mountains. Auciello

invites people who are

interested to contact her at

Local project recognized by

Americans for the Arts

“Camp Ground: Arts,

Corrections and Fire Management

in the Santa

Monica Mountains,” a twoyear

project by artist Kim

Abeles, was honored as

part of Americans for the

Arts’ Public Art Network

Year in Review program.

The project was managed

by the Armory Center for

the Arts.

Abeles was embedded in

the Malibu Conservation

Camp #13 to work with

female inmates who fight

fires in the region to create

a series of 10 mixed media

suitcases (“valises”). The

women provided the content

for the valises through

their experiences with firefighting

and fire abatement

methods. Each valise has

a theme with specific talking

points, and all of them

circle back toward teaching

issues about fire abatement

and our connection to the

wilderness that Fire and

National Park Services are

using in their educational

public outreach events to

increase public awareness,

engagement and responsible

stewardship.

Abeles plans to develop

a training video that can

accompany the valises and

be accessed on the Fire and

NPS websites.

This year, the PAN Year

in Review received 361

applications, their largest

set of submissions in over

five years from public art

programs and artists from

across the U.S. and beyond.

Ashley’s Angle

The rebirth of Malibu

Ashley Hamilton

Contributing columnist

Malibu resident

The day begins like a

flame.

The day begins

with zones of blue and

black, yielding to luminous

sections of yellow and

gold.

The day begins with the

light of promise and the

flicker of mourning, a day

in the life of life itself.

The day begins with

love, loss, suffering,

triumph and transcendence:

a constant cycle of

birth and burial in which

the noblest thing we can

do for ourselves is to be

aware of what we do, to

know what we plan to do

— to know what we have

done — so we may earn

forgiveness and achieve

enlightenment.

The day begins, in

Malibu, with the chance

to repair a portion of the

world.

If the days ahead are to

be glorious, we must make

them so.

We must restore the

wealth of nature, rather

than impoverishing

ourselves with material

riches.

If all we do is replace

one mansion with another,

fireproofing our homes

instead of fortifying our

souls, we will be even

more vulnerable to the fire

next time. If we ignore the

lessons of the Woolsey

Fire, we will continue to

incite the forces of Mother

Nature.

If we are to have an

everlasting name — if our

names are to rest beside an

eternal flame — we must

rebuild the best of Malibu.

By our acts future generations

will know us.

Neither the fondest

hopes nor the most fervent

prayers will save us. Not

when we alone have the

power to write the next

chapter of the history of

Malibu, and to write it

throughout the landscape

of Malibu.

What, then, shall we

write?

What, then, shall we

do to right the wrongs of

abuse and neglect against

Malibu?

We can start by cleaning

the air.

We can clear the air

of the chemicals that

turn day into night, that

threaten us with a permanent

midnight of heat and

smog in which it is safer

to stay inside than it is to

go outside.

We can purify the air.

We can free ourselves

from our air-conditioned

living rooms, so we may

live — and work — in the

fresh air of Malibu.

We can revive the canyons

and coastline, converting

ruins into habitats

of humanity.

We can do all of these

things, and more, if we

commit ourselves to the

hard work of renewal.

The work will test our

resolve and try our devotion.

The work will make

us cry and sweat, as we

struggle to refresh the soil,

as we labor to resurrect

the soil, as we strive to

replenish the soil.

The work is impossible

without a measure of suffering,

because the price

of greatness is sorrow:

the sorrow of trying to

conceive life, of bringing

forth life, of sustaining

life.

The work will harden

our bodies, not our hearts,

so long as we remember

to treat the day like we till

the ground — with awe

and reverence, and tenderness

too, recognizing that

our suffering is temporary;

that our suffering is necessary;

that our suffering is

just.

The work goes on, the

cause endures, and the

dream shall never die.

The work infuses our

lives with meaning.

The work begins the day

because we have promises

to keep, and miles to go

before we sleep, and miles

to go before we sleep.

Henderson said.

“However, some species

do not do well in care and

we make an assessment on

the beach regarding whether

to attempt to rehabilitate

an animal, or whether it is

more humane to euthanize

it because sometimes when

they are larger, their body

weight can crush their internal

organs and they suffer,”

she said.

Henderson noted that

“decisions to euthanize are

not made lightly and are

only reached after as many

experts as possible are consulted.”

CWC was established

in 1998 as a nonprofit organization

that provides

emergency care, medical

treatment and rehabilitation

to injured and orphaned native,

wild animals throughout

Southern California.

Since then, the organization

has served approximately

52,000 animals. Every year,

the center serves approximately

4,000 terrestrial and

marine animals and fields

approximately 30,000 calls

from the public, Henderson

stated, noting that some of

those calls are duplicative

reports of incidents.

“The center is a shortterm

care facility,” Henderson

said. “It only takes

animals in order to rehabilitate

them so they can be released

back into the wild.”

In addition to its efforts

working with the animals,

CWC also provides educational

outreach in the community.

“We want the community

to know that if someone

sees a stranded animal,

he should give it space and

contact us so that we can

come and render aid,” Henderson

said.

to prepare food, clean enclosures

and, after appropriate

training, help with

rescues. Marine mammal

volunteers can join from

January to July, whereas

those who want to work

with terrestrial animals can

begin training anytime.

“Donations are always

needed,” Henderson noted,

adding that people also can

go online and designate the

California Wildlife Center

as a recipient of monies

when they shop on Amazon

Smile or at Ralph’s.

Attendees were impressed

by Henderson’s

presentation.

“It’s fortunate that we

Don’t Panic, It’s Organic

Looking to plant new seeds

Andy Lopez

Invisible Gardener

Contributing Columnist

Recently, a reader

wrote in to ask me

for flowering plant

recommendations for a

steep, sunny area that was

left bare after they trimmed

dead ceanothus bushes

from it. The area has a

sprinkler system, they

added.

They wrote: “It is a

southern exposure in

Malibu Park facing the

ocean about a mile away. I

do not want to plant vining

plants like bougainvillea,

as they will grow over the

stone pathways that wind

down the hill.

I also recently planted

a Sapote tree there, and it

dropped all of its leaves

in a few weeks. Is that

normal, or is it failing?

And finally, what flowering

perennials do you

recommend for an area

that is in partial shade and

gets very light watering?

I would like it to be in

bloom in August, but can

plant different plants so

that there is bloom all year

round?”

Thanks for the question!

First, let’s start with

what to plant on your hillside.

I would think about

planting California natives

as much as possible. They

would require less watering,

maybe once or twice

per month. You can have

a beautiful ground cover

with these natives: white

yarrow, farewell to spring,

Chinese houses, California

poppy (plant different colors),

globe gila, bird’s eye,

tidy tips, golden lupine,

arroyo lupine, five spot,

baby blue eyes, California

bluebells, blue-eyed grass,

African daisy and coreopsis.

All of them will do

well.

I would plant a mixture

of these for year-round

flowering. I also would

plant native grasses. Many

varieties will look and do

well.

All of these can be

started from seeds, except

the native grasses. You can

buy those at most nurseries

in Malibu, or try Green

Thumb in Ventura. They

have a large selection of

native grasses and plants.

You can order native plant

and grass seeds from

Peaceful Valley Farm and

Garden Supplies in Grass

Valley. A local source of

natives is Soils Solutions

(www.soilssolutions.com).

Soils Solutions also sells

Kurapia — a California

native with roots that go

down 10 feet and, once

established, does not need

much water to survive. It

has white flowers and is

very hard to burn.

You can always do a

cover crop. There are many

excellent cover crops you

can use that return organic

matter, nitrogen and trace

minerals back into the

soil. There are many, but,

usually, you would grow

various vegetables that will

spread and can either be

left alone or turned over

and allowed to decompose

in the soil.

Some cover crops include:

onion/garlic family;

mint/thyme family; carrot/

dill family; alder, legume

family (fava beans, Dutch

clover, alfalfa); Diakon

Radish; dandelions; wheat,

rye, oats and sorghum;

vegetables like arugula;

soybeans; Austrian winter

field peas, crimson clover,

hairy vetch, and subterranean

clover.

Biennials and perennials

include red clover, white

clover, sweet clover and

alfalfa.

Crimson clover is

considered one of the best

cover crops for us.

Cowpeas are native to

Central Africa and do well

in our climate. Soybeans

also will do well here with

a small amount of soil care.

Velvet bean (mucuna),

Canavalia, Crotalaria

and Tephrosia all can be

used as living mulches.

Alfalfa is commonly interseeded

with small grains,

such as oats, wheat and

barley. Crown vetch can

be grown as a permanent

groundcover. Red clover is

another excellent cover

crop. Sweet clover and

White clover produce as

much growth as many of

the other legumes, with

the New Zealand types of

white clover being perfect

for our dry summers.

Some grasses are: annual

cereals (rye, wheat, barley,

oats), annual or perennial

forage grasses such

as ryegrass, and warmseason

grasses such as

sorghum–sudan grass.

Winter rye (also called

cereal or grain rye) is very

winter-hardy and easy to

establish. While oats are

not winter-hardy, they

will do well in our mild

winter climate. Annual ryegrass

grows well in our climate,

especially if planted

in the fall. It develops an

extensive root system and

therefore provides very

effective erosion control

while adding organic matter.

As far as other cover

crops, buckwheat is an

excellent one for our area

if appropriately handled.

Brassicas including mustard,

rapeseed and forage

radish also are great as

cover crops.

A healthy mix of all the

above is what I would call

a good cover crop.

Concerning your Sapote

tree, you didn’t mention

when you first planted it.

If you planted it during the

summer, leaves should not

have fallen off, but if you

planted in late fall, they

usually drop off during

wintertime, especially if it

gets freezing. I would apply

rock dust, compost, organic

fertilizer and mulch

it. Place 2 gallon per hour

drip heads around the base,

water once a week and see

what happens!

You can plant various

fruit trees on the slope if

you want fruit. Try figs,

dates, oranges, limes, lemons

(do not plant together

with oranges, plant one or

the other). If you plant fruit

trees, use a drip around the

base. They will need watering

only once per week

during the hottest time of

year.

Here are a few types of

California natives you can

plant that flower: mountain

yarrow, sierra sticky

monkeyflower (all kinds

of monkeyflowers can be

planted), California fennel,

Christmas berry, alumroot,

jack o rocks, San Diego

pitcher plant, California

honeysuckle, mint bush

and wild mock orange are

a few California natives

that love the particle shade

and flower well. They all

need little water.

Planting a mix of these

plants will give you flowers

all year long!

From the Editor

A light on bright futures

Lauren Coughlin

lauren@malibusurfsidenews.com

It takes a special drive

to be an entrepreneur

— and a very special

one to become one during

their teenage years when

that type of responsibility

is often a personal choice.

Even before I interviewed

Hunter Nelson,

I could tell he had the

trademarks of a successful

businessman. He promptly

replied to my initial

inquiry and noted that he

was a morning person, and

he quickly made himself

available to talk about his

business, Lobster Taxi

(which you can read a bit

more about on Page 6, if

you missed it). And, once

I got him on the phone,

you could certainly hear

the passion in his voice.

I’m not the only one

who noticed his ambition,

as The Malibu Association

of Realtors also recently

announced Nelson was

their scholarship recipient.

Surely, Nelson is not

the only one who is doing

big things at such a young

age, and it’s the type of

story we love to hear and

share here at the Surfside

News. So, for those

Letters to the Editor

A convert

We’ve seen them come

and go, often with pain involved:

• How many years did

the wonderful Pier View

restaurant sit vacant and rot

before the final demolition?

I sure miss that chowder in

a bread bowl and playing

It is not just rumor that

Papa Jack’s Skate Park

Where am I going with

new Whole Foods at the

Park, just like the imagined

hordes of PCH-mangling

trucks forewarned prior to

the Measure R proposition

vote in 2014.

Confession: Along with

59.58 percent of the electorate,

I voted to restrict the

size of future commercial

enterprises in Malibu, targeting

Whole Foods. Those

nervy billionaires, trying

to build whatever they

want on property they own.

We’ll keep that Ralph’s

wrecker out!

After the Second District

Court of Appeals put the

matter to rest, finally, we

watched as the new center

began taking shape. Feeling

jilted that the will of the

people was overturned yet

again; I considered writing

a dismissive missive, excoriating

out of control development

in the city and closing

with an invective laced

kiss-off directed at Steve

Soboroff.

A calming (hard-won)

inner voice told me to take

pause.

After reading about its

grand opening and then listening

to a longtime local

gush about the new center,

it was time to visit.

Confession (2): It’s awesome!

Fabulous grocery

store/restaurant with a

smooth local vibe I feared

might be missing. I will

even try some Laird Superfood,

whatever that is. I’ve

never seen living walls like

those. Glad Howdy is back

in town. I’ll check out the

other new businesses.

I ran into a couple of

folks who I know for a fact

voted against the store. We

beamed, shrugged and continued

shopping.

Sometimes you just roll

with it.

Malibu Country Mart

welcomes ba&sh

Rentable closet among

draws at new boutique

Barbara Burke, Freelance Reporter

Malibu is home to a second

West Coast location for ba&sh, a

French boutique that its founders

describe as a venue “where the

glamorous meets the bohème.”

The shop opened July 2 in the

Malibu Country Mart and will

carry upscale, casual chic, bohemian

and retro clothes for all

occasions. Barbara Boccara and

Sharon Krief, two friends who

parlayed their shared love of

fashion into a highly successful

boutique business, named the

store after the first two letters of

each of their names.

“We are thrilled to be opening

our seventh store and our second

West Coast store in Malibu,”

said Irene Yuan, vice president

of marketing for ba&sh, North

America. “The effortless, relaxed

sophistication of Malibu has long

been an inspiration for – and in

ideal alignment with – our brand,

and we’re excited to share our

feminine, Parisian collections

with the community.”

As one walks into the wellappointed,

upscale venue, she

sees feminine, flowing fashions

that are casual, yet chic. There

are soft, silky dresses, floral

jumpsuits that are “all the rage”

this season, and fresh, flowing

blouses that can augment any

wardrobe. Suede boots are on

show and complement the store’s

many fashions.

“We offer effortless, feminine

Parisian pieces – our cofounders,

Barbara and Sharon,

envisioned bringing to life their

dream wardrobe for all occasions

when they founded the

brand in Paris in 2003,” Yuan explained.

“From work to weekend

to beyond, our collections are

designed to be always easy-towear,

We are especially known for our

special occasion dresses: many

women in France turn to ba&sh

for summer weddings, graduations,

birthdays and other special

moments in their lives.”

The fun is just beginning at

ba&sh, Malibu, Yuan promises,

noting that the venue is a permanent

store — not a pop-up.

“We will have several fun

opening events coming up and

if customers email us at malibu@ba-sh.com,

we’ll be able

to keep you in the loop!” Yuan

said. “Also, we’re launching

a program called the Dream

Closet at our Malibu store,

where every Friday from 5-7

p.m., customers can come “borrow”

ba&sh iconic [ready-towear]

pieces for the weekend for

free — as long as you return by

Monday.”

Yuan said interested customers

should send an email to find out

more details, including exactly

what Friday in July the Dream

Closet opportunity would be

available.

“The Dream Closet is perfect

to borrow dresses for summer

weddings, chic outfits for date

nights, etc.,” she said. “It’s a program

we piloted in our NYC Nolita

boutique with great success,

and we’re excited to bring it to

Malibu as our first West Coast location

of the Dream Closet!”

Mixer sheds light on Pepperdine’s programs

Blend of new, old

performers slated

for this season

Anastassia Kostin

Freelance Reporter

A new dawn is setting for

Pepperdine University’s art

scene.

At a Malibu Chamber of

Commerce Sunset Mixer

on July 9, Chamber members

and faculty at the Lisa

Smith Wengler Center for

the Arts gathered to announce

the CFA’s programming

for the 2019-2020

season.

The event, held at Pepperdine’s

Frederick R.

Weisman Museum, marked

the first time the CFA and

Crest Associates, a community

support group for Pepperdine

University, paired

together for a mixer.

“We were interested in

pairing with the Chamber

of Commerce to show what

the Center for the Arts and

Pepperdine can do to attract

local business community

leaders,” said Rebecca Carson,

managing director of

the CFA.

In terms of communitybuilding,

the purpose of the

CFA is to partner with the

community to bring innovative,

unique and diverse

performances and museum

exhibitions to Pepperdine.

Last year, the CFA served

50,000 patrons in over

1,100 zipcodes. Most of the

attendees for professional

presentations come from

outside of Pepperdine, according

to Carson.

“It’s really important in

terms of quality of life for

people,” Carson said. “You

have an opportunity to see

Sunset Mixer attendees mingle during the recent event at

the Frederick R. Weisman Museum.

and hear dance, music, theater

and visual arts. It just

changes your perspective

and opens you up to new

worlds in a way that’s really

important.”

Something that draws

audiences in, Carson said,

is the intimate setting of

Smothers Theatre, which

has 450 seats. This typically

results in singer-songwriter

performances selling

out, according to Carson.

Tickets for upcoming

programs range from $20-

$70 for the general public.

For Pepperdine students,

tickets for any show are

$10.

Upcoming shows include

cover performances

of Beatles songs by Abbey

Road, a cirque FLIP

Fabrique show, a comedy

show by Colin Mochrie

and Brad Sherwood and an

interactive panel discussion

by Rolling Stone magazine

critics Peter Travers and

David Fear.

“It’s a range of different

types of shows,” Carson

said. “Our goal is to have

something that appeals to

everyone.”

Selecting the performances

is about a 10-month process,

according to Carson,

who vets all the performers

and talks to experts in the

field to get a sense of what

shows are worth doing.

In addition to the new

performances, some groups

that have performed at the

CFA before also will be returning,

including the Versa-

Style Dance Company.

Four members of the

group — Ernesto Galarza,

Brandon Juezan, Cynthia

Hernandez and Harry

Weston — performed a

sneak peek of their fulllength

production, “ORI-

GINS of Hip-Hop,” which

they will be presenting in

October.

“There’s a lot of families

that come to watch the

shows and so we have a

specific love for that community,”

Galarza said.

“ORIGINS” is planned to

be more than a dance performance.

“It’s going to be looking

at the origins of street dance

and the foundation and what

that means for us as a dance

culture,” Weston said. “But

then also what that means

for us as individuals.

“Where do we all come

from? What is our story?

Rebecca Carson, the managing director for the Lisa Smith Wengler Center for the Arts,

speaks at the July 9 Sunset Mixer at Pepperdine. Photos by Suzy Demeter/Surfside News

What does origin mean, as

a human? We’re going to be

exploring that thematically

and movement-wise.”

In addition to performances,

the Weisman Museum

has summer, fall and

spring exhibitions. The current

exhibition, called “How

the Mind Works” by Squeak

Carnwath is on display until

the end of July. In August,

the Weisman Museum will

be installing sculpture pieces

by artist Auguste Rodin,

who is famous for his sculpture

“The Thinker.”

From dance, theater, and

circus to all types of musical

performances, CFA aims to

cater to all tastes.

“I would encourage people

to try something new

and get to see something

different,” Carson said. “We

have comedy performances,

music performances — a

little bit of everything.”

Malibu resident to kick off lecture series

Submitted by Malibu United

Methodist Church

The writings of the 18th

century philosopher Jean-

Jacques Rousseau had an

impact on family life and

education, politics and government,

science and religion,

psychology and social

structure in the two-and-ahalf

centuries since.

Rousseau influenced the

American Revolution and

the founding documents,

our school system and family

relationships, and continues

to influence our dayto-day

lives.

Rousseau saw his tasks as

being to move people from

caring only about themselves

to doing what is good

for all people, to persuade us

that there is a possible social

order that is helpful and fair,

and to show people how to

reach the “basic sweetness

of existence.”

In addition to The Social

Contract that established

his ideas of the general will

and liberty, Rousseau wrote

the educational treatise

“Emile,” the first romance

novel “Julia: The New Heloise,”

the first warts-and-all

autobiography “The Confessions,”

the economics

guide “Discourse on Inequality,”

the environmental

musings of “The Reveries

of a Solitary Walker,” and

the critique of science “Discourse

on the Sciences and

Arts,” among others.

Anybody who is interested

in learning how we

are “friends of Rousseau” is

invited to the Malibu United

Methodist Church on Morning

View Drive at 7 p.m.

Tuesday, July 23.

After a year-long hiatus,

the church is reviving the

Charles Green Memorial

Community Lecture Series.

There is no admission fee,

and snacks will be served.

The presenter is Dr. Green’s

son-in-law Larry Jones.

A Malibu resident from

1951 until 1977, Jones

moved back to Malibu in

2012 with his wife of 38

years, Marilyn Green. Jones

taught history at Malibu

Park Jr. High in the 1980s

and then at Moorpark High

School for 25 years. Jones

was inducted into the Ventura

County Educators’ Hall

of Fame in 2010, and he

coached the Moorpark High

Academic Decathlon Team

to four U.S. National Championships

and 13 Ventura

County Championships.

He also was the director of

the federal Teaching American

History project through

which he taught content and

skills to 170 history teachers

for five years until his retirement.

Jones is looking forward

to his presentation to show

why Immanuel Kant said

that “Jean-Jacques Rousseau

was the Isaac Newton

of the moral universe.”

10 Questions

with Lewis Baron

Pepperdine Athletics

Waves men’s basketball gets Arizona

in Wooden Legacy First Round

Baron was a member of the

Malibu High School boys

water polo and baseball

teams.

When and why did you

start playing baseball?

I started when I was 7

and it was because my dad

loved baseball as a kid and

he got me into it from a

young age.

What do you like most

about the sport?

I like the competitiveness

and the teamwork. Without

the entire team, you can’t

win a game. I like being able

to work with my friends.

Do you have any

superstitions before a

game?

I never step on the line

and me and my friend Max

do a dance before a game.

What is your favorite

sports moment?

It was probably going to

the finals at CIS last year

for baseball. We didn’t win

but we had a good game,

probably the most-memorable

I ever had.

What is one thing people

don’t know about you?

I really like nature and

going out on hikes and stuff.

If you could be any

superhero, which super

power would you

want?

I would want teleportation.

Photo submitted

What would you do if

you won the lottery?

I would save half of it

and the other half I would

make sure to take care of

my family and friends.

If you could play any

other sport, which

would you play?

I would play football.

I played flag football

as a team, but my mom

wouldn’t let me play actual

football.

What is one thing on

your bucket list?

I want to build and live in

a house in Costa Rica.

If you could be any

animal, which would

you be?

I would be an eagle because

they can hunt and

stuff but can look down and

get a different perspective

in life.

Interview by Assistant Editor

Michal Dwojak

Pepperdine men’s basketball

coach Lorenzo Romar

will face the school he

last worked at in the first

round of the Wooden Legacy,

as ESPN announced

Thursday, July 11, that the

Waves will take on Arizona

on Thanksgiving night

in the tournament’s first

round.

The Pepperdine-Arizona

matchup will take place

at 8 p.m. PT on ESPN2

at the Anaheim Arena on

Thursday, Nov. 28. UCF

and Penn are the other two

teams in the Waves’ half

of the bracket. Providence

plays Long Beach State

and Wake Forest battles the

College of Charleston in

the other two games.

The tournament continues

with four games on

Friday, Nov. 29, and the

final set of contests will be

played on Sunday, Dec. 1.

All games will be shown

on the ESPN family of networks.

Romar was the associate

head coach at Arizona for

the 2017-18 season, before

returning to Pepperdine

ahead of last season. The

Waves and Wildcats will

be meeting for the first time

since December 2001.

The matchup means that

the Waves will now play

three Pac-12 teams in the

upcoming season, as they

will also play road games

at California (Tuesday,

Nov. 5) and USC (Tuesday,

Nov. 19).

The tournament is

named after UCLA coaching

great John Wooden —

the great-grandfather of

Pepperdine men’s basketball

director of operations

John Impelman.

The Waves return three

starters and 10 letterwinners

who accounted for 75

percent of the scoring, 81%

percent of the rebounding

and 85 percent of the assists

in 2018-19. Colbey Ross

earned All-WCC first team

honors after setting school

records and ranking among

the best in nation in assists

and free throws. Kameron

Edwards was All-WCC

honorable mention and

Kessler Edwards made the

WCC All-Freshman team.

Pepperdine finished 16-18

but in Romar’s first season

back, the Waves were

one of just nine Division

I schools to post a 10-win

improvement over the year

before. Pepperdine won

three games in three days

at the WCC Tournament to

reach the semifinals of the

event.

WOMEN’S VOLLEYBALL

Wong adds Hittle to staff

Head coach Scott Wong

announced the hiring of

Tara Hittle as the team’s

newest assistant coach for

the upcoming 2019 campaign.

“We are lucky to have

Tara as she has had a significant

impact in every

program that she has been

a part of as a player, and

more recently as a coach,”

Wong says in a press release.

“Tara has developed

into a great recruiter and

as she has the unique ability

to quickly connect with

anyone on and off the court

and to develop those into

lasting relationships.

“Lastly, Tara knows what

it takes to be great and she

will help mentor our young

ladies to excel in all areas

of their lives.”

A former NCAA Division-I

multi-sport studentathlete

and professional

volleyball player, Hittle

spent her collegiate career

playing both volleyball and

basketball at the University

of Hawai’i, graduating

with a degree in physical

education and health in

2009. While playing from

2004-08, with Wong on

the coaching staff in 2006,

she was a four-time letterwinner

and remains in the

record book for career digs

(fourth – 1,315) and digs/

game (seventh – 2.83). Hittle

also helped the Rainbow

Wahine to a pair of NCAA

Elite Eight appearances in

2006 and 2008, as well as

Sweet 16 berths in 2004

and 2005.

“It’s a tremendous honor

to be able to represent Pepperdine

University,” Hittle

says in a press release. “I

believe it’s a place where

student-athletes have an

opportunity to receive an

excellent education and

compete at the highest

level.

“I’m thankful for the

opportunity to work with

Scott Wong. He’s an incredible

coach who has a

great vision for the program

and I can’t wait to be

a part of the journey.”

Most recently, Hittle

served as an assistant coach

with the Duke women’s

volleyball program, a program

that frequents the

NCAA Women’s Volleyball

Championships. In 2018,

Hittle helped the Blue Devil

squad to a 16-12 overall

record and a fifth-place finish

in the ACC, as well as

a NCAA First Round ending.

She helped three Blue

Devils to All-ACC performances

throughout the

season, while also guiding

two to AVCA All-American

accolades.

Prior to Duke, Hittle

spent time on the sidelines

with Portland State in 2017,

helping the Vikings to the

team’s first 20-win season

since 2013 and guiding four

to All-Big Sky Conference

honors. Before Portland

State, she spent time as a

member of the Dartmouth

coaching staff in 2016.

From 2011-16, she

served as a high school

and club volleyball coach

in her home state of Colorado,

serving as the head

volleyball coach at Valor

Christian High School from

2014-15 and Doherty High

School from 2011-14. She

led DHS to a 2012 State

Championship title and

was named 2012 Colorado

Coach of the Year.

After UH, she also

played professionally for

the Volleyball Franches-

Montagnes in Switzerland

during the 2010-11 season.

‘Sports is a way out of the sadness’

Athletics deliver

solace in wake of

Woolsey Fire

Michal Dwojak

Assistant Editor

Amelia Goudzwaard

drove through the apocalypse

on Nov. 9 looking for

salvation.

Flames and smoke roared

around the teenager’s car,

shaking it as it zipped down

the Malibu hillside. She repeated,

“Everything is OK,”

as fires consumed to her left

and to her right. Amid the

fright, guilt and regret were

already blossoming in her

mind, feelings that tug at her

to this day.

Goudzwaard, then a

Malibu High School senior,

fled her family home on the

second day of the Woolsey

Fire — the first day it

reached Malibu. That morning,

her childhood home in

the mountains filled with

smoke. While her father argued

the house was safe, she

decided to take no chances

and head to Zuma Beach,

taking a bag, her basketball

gear and her dog.

She found refuge with

a friend’s family, but fear

started to o verwhelm her.

Goudzwaard’s mother visited

her around noon, then

went home before text messages

that flooded Goudzwaard’s

phone much of the

morning suddenly stopped.

She looked up toward home

and saw only an orange

glow.

Fortunately, her family

escaped unharmed, but her

house with everything in it

was erased.

“I’m frustrated with

myself every single day,”

Goudzwaard said about not

staying to help hold off the

fire. “ ... I’ve been living in

that house for 17 years and

four months. I was basically

born in that house and it’s

basically gone.”

Like many homes in

danger during the fire, firefighters

never stopped by

the Goudzwaards’. Many

residents fought fires at their

homes and the homes of

their neighbors. Some fights

were successful. Some were

not. The one at the Goudzwaards’

is in the latter category,

and while it was a long

shot, Goudzwaard believes

she could have done something.

That burden, one she

still carries, lay heavy.

The Woolsey Fire officially

ended Nov. 21,

burned 96,949 acres (more

than three times the size of

San Francisco), destroyed

hundreds of homes and

stole three lives. The end of

the fire marked a transformation

of Malibu’s future, a

future that will require years

of recovery efforts.

With a horrifying recent

past and a daunting foreseeable

future, Goudzwaard,

like her neighbors, needed

an escape from reality.

And she turned to what she

knows best: sport.

It wasn’t easy. Athletes

and teams at Malibu High

worked through delayed

seasons and destroyed facilities.

Some student-athletes

never returned to their

teams while others rejoined

for an uncertain amount of

time, but in those months

following the fires, sports

served as the distraction

many required.

“It helped me realize that

I can’t control everything;

there’s [no situation when]

I’m going to be able to do

that,” Goudzwaard said.

“Sports is a way out of the

sadness and dark feeling everyone

was feeling.”

***

Luke Davis sat in his

compact Malibu High office

on a May afternoon,

occasionally peeking out his

window to look at the past.

He could see clearly

the effects of the fire from

his desk. Past the portable

classrooms and blacktopped

parking lot, Davis eyed the

charcoaled trees and disintegrated

homes. The view

consumed him. It took static

and chatter from a walkietalkie

to break the MHS

boys basketball coach’s

stare.

“The effects of the fire,

man, were a lot. It was a lot

to deal with,” Davis said before

pausing to look again

to the past. “It was a tough

situation.”

A cloud-dotted blue sky

on that May afternoon was

a far cry from what he saw

on his third day as the program’s

coach, Nov. 8, when

he was forced to cancel

practice as hell rolled down

the mountainside.

Etched forever in Davis’

memory is the orange blaze

and smoke coming from the

hills when he returned that

day from the gym to his office.

He would not run a practice

in the Malibu High gym

for a month after the Woolsey

Fire. Many in-season

Sharks programs canceled

practices, while gamedays

became a concern.

Davis had to withdraw

his team from three tournaments

and all but two preseason

games. This was not

the way he wanted to start

his coaching tenure. But he

had no choice.

“At that point, as a coach,

I couldn’t be selfish,” Davis

remembered. “I understood;

[the fire] didn’t affect me.”

Andy Meyer had the

same hardships. The girls

basketball head coach also

canceled practice because

of poor air quality the day

the fire started.

He offered his home in

Culver City to any of his

players and their families,

but after that, he didn’t

know what to do.

“It’s tough as a coach

and a teacher,” Meyer said.

“You want to help, but what

can you do?”

Within the first few days

of the fire, basketball players

reached out to both

coaches about practices.

Some players sent texts

needing a place to stay while

others just wanted to stay in

contact, but both coaches

were surprised at what the

kids — many with their

lives very recently changed

forever — wanted the most:

They wanted to play basketball

again.

Both coaches contacted

area gyms to see if there

were spaces for their teams

to practice. The details

(time, place, who showed

up) didn’t matter. What

mattered was offering the

escape the student-athletes

needed.

Davis and Meyer secured

gym time at Santa Monica

High School and tried to run

practices like they normally

would, even though normal

was now a confusing word.

“To me, it was to get their

normal life back again,”

Meyer said. “There were

two practices where everyone

was there. I could tell

there was an awkward feeling.

You could see things

had changed a bit because

of what they went through.”

It was quiet. Eerily but

understandably silent, players

waited around the court

for their turn to practice.

Meyer told the girls to start

getting ready, and then

something happened.

“They went to go put

shoes on and just started

jabbering,” Meyer said.

“This forced them to get together;

it was almost like it

was a month before.”

Their chatter continued as

they warmed up. Normally,

Meyer like most coaches

would tame the chatter, but

things were different now,

and Meyer didn’t know

what to do: Should he let

them talk or be the stern

coach he had always been?

Before he could decide,

the players started to run

practice, competing with the

same focus he was used to.

For those hour or twohour

long practices, with

devastating circumstances

waiting outside the gym

doors, basketball took over.

Many other MHS teams

and student-athletes went

through the same recovery

process when students

reunited when school resumed.

No matter which

sport it was, it served as a

respite, stability amid chaos

— a way to forget, if only

for 120 minutes.

MHS basketball player

Chloe Dyne was one of

about 50 district students

who lost a home in the fire.

Her new home was a hotel

room in Santa Monica, so

when she had the chance to

escape through basketball,

she took it.

“I think sports, for me,

has always been something

to take me away from reality,

but especially during

the fires, it was nice to get

away from it all — trying to

replace stuff and worrying

about where we’re going

to move next,” Dyne said.

“That was a way to escape

from the world and focus on

one thing at a time.”

Both Davis and Meyer

canceled games. Two players

from Davis’ team never

returned to Malibu or the

team after their houses were

destroyed, while others

needed time as their families

worked through next

steps.

Since some student-athletes

didn’t return as quickly

as others, fewer players

were available to compete.

And there were plenty of

posing coaches graciously

didn’t accept them.

Neither basketball team

went on to make a postseason

run, but the teams

fought every chance they

got. They were fighting

plenty, but the sport allowed

them an outlet in

which to exert that energy.

The dubious fight to find

normal became something

definite: a fight for a loose

ball or a fight for a victory.

Davis again sat back in

his chair and turned his eyes

toward the window, where

he could see construction

workers rebuilding in the

distance.

He smiled.

“It’s very encouraging,”

Davis said. “If they can

rebuild and stay and say,

‘This isn’t going to get the

best of me,’ what I have to

go through is very miniscule.

Just to know that the

community is still here and

[staying mad is] not worth

it. … To know that they are

rebuilding says a lot of what

type of people are here.”
