Pepperdine plants flags display for 12th consecutive year

Anastassia Kostin

Freelance Reporter

On Saturday, Sept. 7,

more than 200 volunteers

gathered to install hundreds

of flags at the corner

of Pacific Coast Highway

and Malibu Canyon Road

on Pepperdine’s campus.

This is the 12th year the

university has featured the

Waves of Flags installation,

with 2,977 full-size

flags commemorating the

lives lost in the 9/11 terror

attacks. The display

includes 2,887 American

flags and 90 international

flags representing the

home countries of victims

from abroad. The project

was started in 2008 by the

Pepperdine College Republicans.

“It’s been a long time

since Sept. 11, 2001, and

you start to realize our

students weren’t born or

were very young,” said

Doug Hurley, associate

dean of students. “But it’s

a chance for generations to

talk about what this meant

on that day for them and

pass on that legacy, and for

them to see the magnitude

of tragedy, walk through it

and just do their own reflection.”

For more than a decade,

Waves of Flags has been

a significant service project

for the Pepperdine and

Malibu communities as

part of Step Forward Day.

The annual day of service

gives students, alumni and

friends the opportunity to

embody Pepperdine’s mission

in their communities

through over 20 projects.

While it was initially

difficult to get the installation

approved, it now

receives national attention

every year.

To view more

photos, visit

malibusurfside

news.com.

Editor’s Note:

The White Heart

Foundation’s annual

Ride to the Flags was

canceled this year. “As

we continue to devote

more and more time

to the ride’s original

mission of helping

our nation’s severely

injured veterans, we’re

faced with a harsh

reality: the lack of

man-power to manage

both the event and the

charity has pushed us

to our limits,” wrote

White Heart Foundation

Executive Director Ryan

Sawtelle in a statement.

“Every year we get

emails saying, ‘Hey, thank

you, my cousin, my brother,

my mom, my aunt died

on that day; thank you for

remembering,’” Hurley

said.

Three new Pepperdine

students who served in

the Air Force and Marine

Corps were given the opportunity

to place the first

flags.

“A lot of incoming students

weren’t even alive

for 9/11,” said Daniel

Ghattas, who served in

the Marine Corps for five

years. “I think it’s just important

that we drive home

the idea that it’s something

we don’t forget and

recognize the incredible

sacrifices that have come

from it.”

For Colby Parry, who

Pepperdine senior Alex Johnson (left) and Doug Hurley, associate dean of students, place flags on Pepperdine

University’s lawn on the afternoon of Saturday, Sept. 7. Dave Teel/Surfside News

served in the Marine Corps

for four years, the flags

serve as a reminder of what

makes America so strong.

“At the end of the day,

America is a country and

it’s the citizens and the

people in it that make it

great,” Parry said. “And by

doing this event with the

flags, I think it’s a constant

reminder that whatever

your religious background,

your sex, your race, we’re

all American. We can all

come together and work

together toward a common

goal.”

The fact that Pepperdine

does this kind of display

and has other installations

to honor those who live heroic

lives, such as the Heroes

Garden on the graduate

campus, was a selling

point for Ghattas in choosing

a school.

“Especially in today’s

climate, there are going to

be people that see you in

the military and immediately

have negative opinions

about that, which is

intimidating when you’re

going back to school,”

Ghattas said. “And Pepperdine

has always made

me feel incredibly welcome

with all the events

they do.”

Jennifer Bahn, who

served in the Air Force for

two years, added, “It helps

us feel like we’re also students

and part of the group

as a whole. As veterans,

we come from such different

backgrounds and it’s

hard for us to adjust, but

doing events like this bring

the whole community together.”

The Waves of Flag installation

aims to bring

the community together

and unite them around

what the flags represent,

but it also speaks to the

importance of tradition at

Pepperdine.

“We look at this as a celebration

of life, a celebration

of community, but it’s

also a sad and profoundly

powerful reminder of some

dark things,” said Matt Ebeling,

executive director of

alumni relations. “Being

able to come together as a

family and process through

all that together, I think is

just a neat opportunity.”

The Waves of Flags installation

is open for viewing

and visitation until

Sept. 25.

Hiker, 63, dies on Labor Day group hike in Malibu hills

Officials extract

eight others from

meetup group

Lauren Coughlin, Editor

Jeffrey Sherman, a

63-year-old from Thousand

Oaks, died Sept. 2, after

spending hours outdoors

while on an off-trail group

hike in the Santa Monica

Mountains.

The Los Angeles County

Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner

ruled the

death accidental, and found

two causes: cardiopulmonary

arrest and atherosclerotic

heart disease.

Sherman was the CEO

of Thousand Oaks Family

Well Being, and was a master

herbalist and biochemist

with advanced training in

herbs, vitamin therapy and

homeopathy, according to

the business’ website.

Officials received several

calls for aid beginning at

2:10 p.m. Sept. 2, and eight

additional hikers — who

also were part of the group

hike — were extracted by

helicopter from four different

cliffsides near Newton

Canyon and Zuma Edison

Road, in the Zuma Canyon

area, according to David

Katz, public information

officer and operations leader

for Malibu Search and

Rescue.

Officials as well as fellow

hikers attempted CPR

on Sherman, who was

eventually located by a

sheriff’s helicopter that was

airlifting another distressed

male hiker at the time. SAR

rescuers loaded a defibrillator

and other equipment

into the helicopter, got

flown as close to the location

as possible, and hiked

From sept. 3

roughly 300 yards to reach

him. Katz said the fellow

hikers — all four of whom

were extracted by helicopter

after rescuers determined

they did not know

how to get to the marked

trail — had been attempting

CPR for roughly 15

minutes prior to rescuers’

arrival, and Sherman was

unable to be revived.

Sherman’s official time

of death was 3:40 p.m., according

to Sarah Ardalani,

public information officer

for the Los Angeles County

Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner.

“When we originally got

the call, the report was that

the hiker was in distress

and confused, and then

of course given the [offtrail]

location of the hikers

it wasn’t something you

could get to quickly at all,

so time was a factor,” said

Katz, who said the man’s

death was heat-related.

LA County Fire Capt.

Rick Mullen, also a Malibu

City councilmember, acted

as the incident commander,

and credited Katz with securing

the “key thing” in the

rescue: a sheriff’s observation

helicopter when a fire

helicopter was not immediately

available. Based on

the information the rescuers

had, they were able to send

the helicopter to where they

believed the hikers were.

“These things can be complicated,

and they’re very

much dependent on if someone

has a cellphone signal,

coupled with if they can give

me any clues as to where

they are,” Mullen said.

The rescuers’ last extraction

for the incident, in fact,

was dependent on a cellphone

signal, after one man

who remained stranded

called officials. Mullen was

able to call the man, who

said the helicopter had just

flown over him. With some

back-and-forth, the rescuers

were ultimately able to

spot him.

Katz said the operation

“from start to finish, was

probably 3-plus hours.”

Four Search and Rescue

officials were in the field,

including Katz, and both

the LA County Fire Department

and LA County Sheriff’s

Department responded

by air. McCormick Ambulance

also was on scene.

“[Katz] and his team are

really wonderful and I can’t

say enough good things

about them and our great

synergistic relationship,”

Mullen said.

The hikers, who were

part of a VIP meetup hike

with Hiking with Dean, began

their trek at 9 a.m. and

were supposed to return to

the Newton Canyon trailhead

at 1 p.m.

Katz later learned that

the group’s leader led the

group off trail and into the

brush — “they were essentially

bushwhacking,” said

Katz — and several hikers

got separated after losing

sight of the leader.

Hiking With Dean advertised

the outing as a “strenuous

loop at around 8.5 miles

and about 2,800 [feet] total

ascent” along “one of our

secret trails,” which members

had not hiked since the

Woolsey Fire.

“It may be more overgrown

now than it was

when we first used it,” the

event page states.

Participants were urged

to bring at least 2 quarts of

water, as well as lunch and

snacks.

“All of them were out of

Malibu Search and Rescue, LA County Fire and the LA County Sheriff’s Department

responded to multiple distressed hiker calls on Labor Day after a group of hikers

became separated. Malibu Search and Rescue

water,” Katz said. “We supplied

them with our water,

which then put us at risk,

because it was unbelievably

hot and we then had to

have the helicopters bring

fluids in.”

Twenty-seven attendees

RSVPed to the Labor Day

hike. The hiking group has

been operating since 2007,

and has almost 10,000

members, according to its

website.

Mullen said his jurisdiction

does not tend to see

as many rescues as areas

like the Malibu Creek State

Park, where the rock pool

attracts explorers of various

backgrounds. In this

incident, he said, heat was

no doubt a factor.

“I think it’s just people

who are not that in shape

or used to arduous activity

going out when it’s really

hot,” Mullen said. “They

essentially bit off more

than they can chew.”

As of press time, Hiking

with Dean did not return

the Surfside’s email seeking

comment.

Last month, on Aug. 6,

72-year-old Pamela Vigil

died on a hike with friends

near Circle X Ranch. That

death also appeared to be

heat-related, and occurred

after the woman became

separated from the group,

according to the Ventura

County Sheriff’s Office.

Malibu CITY COUNCIL

Waste not: Council denies CCWTF seekers

Residents voice

concerns on

‘growth-inducing’

sewer expansion

Michele Willer-Allred

Freelance Reporter

The Malibu City Council

has denied the review of applications

from properties

looking to connect into the

Phase 2 update of the Civic

Center Wastewater Treatment

Facility.

During a meeting on Monday,

Sept. 9, the council also

voted 4-0 to proceed as originally

planned with the second

phase of the wastewater

treatment facility project.

Mayor Jefferson Wagner

recused himself from voting

MALIBU

because he owns property

that would have been affected

by the vote.

In November 2009, the

Regional Water Quality

Control Board approved a

resolution prohibiting the

use of septic systems in the

Malibu Civic Center area.

The State Water Resources

Control Board then

established certain dates by

which properties in the Civic

Center area were required

to cease discharge and that

a municipally-owned wastewater

treatment facility

should be constructed.

All properties in Phase 1

of the prohibition area successfully

connected to the

recently constructed and operational

facility by a boardmandated

date of Sept. 30,

2018. Also mandated was

AWARDS

presented by MALIBU SURFSIDE NEWS

that all properties within the

Phase 2 boundary be connected

by Nov. 5, 2024.

A third phase would be

completed by November

2028, depending on if the

water quality from the first

two phases did not improve

significantly.

On Aug. 12, the council

approved a professional

services agreement for

the engineering design of

Phase 2 of the wastewater

treatment facility.

Since then, the City has

been approached by property

owners in Phase 3 who

are interested in connecting

during the second phase,

those not currently in the

prohibition area, and property

owners in Phase 1 that

would like to add capacity

to their property in Phase 2.

Robert DuBoux, the

City’s public works director/city

engineer, said that

because of the potential land

use implications and limited

capacity of the facility, those

requests had to be carefully

considered by the City.

Sixteen applications from

property owners looking

to be added into Phase 2

were received by the June

30 deadline. Included were

many developed and undeveloped

single-family

residential-zoned properties,

as well as commercial

properties — one with a

proposed 7,200-square-foot

hotel — and other development

plans.

In total, the City received

requests for 69,673 gallons

per day, and the wastewater

treatment facility was

designed with a capacity

of 506,000 gallons per day

for all three phases. City

consultants and staff estimated

that the facility could

accommodate a total daily

capacity of 516,000 gallons.

Adding additional properties

would have required further

environmental review.

Several representatives of

property owners spoke on

behalf of their clients.

Residents speaking in opposition

had concerns that

the discretionary extension

of those requests would

only further residential expansion,

as well as commercial

development of

shopping centers, hotels and

other projects.

“It has been proven by

election after election that

the citizens of Malibu do

not welcome growth-inducing

expansion of sewers,”

Planning Commissioner

John Mazza wrote in a letter

to councilmembers.

Malibu resident Bruce

Round it up

A brief recap of action

taken at the Monday,

Sept. 9 meeting of the

Malibu City Council

• The council authorized

the city to enter into

a license agreement

with KBUU-FM Malibu

to utilize Malibu Bluffs

Park for an FM booster

station at no cost to the

City, pending required

permits. The booster

is expected to extend

the broadcast signal to

roughly 97 percent of

Malibu residences.

• The council adopted a

final ordinance prohibiting

electric rideshare

scooters from being

placed or operated in

the public right-of-way.

• The council adopted

a final ordinance and

Silverstein said that adding

the properties would “further

commercialize, further

suburbanize the city, and it’s

the mission and vision of

the City to not do that.”

Some residents questioned

if the consideration

of applications at this time

was planned as a favor to

developers by City officials.

City Manager Reva Feldman

countered that claim,

saying that the City actually

worked hard to prevent the

wastewater treatment facility

from even becoming a

reality, but ultimately had to

move forward with it.

“With that being said,

I’m extremely sensitive and

aware of the community’s

concern with what a sewer

system means to this community

about the potential

amended the zoning

map to add an affordable

housing overlay

district for three sites:

28517 PCH; 28401

PCH; and a portion of

23465 Civic Center

Way.

• The council adopted

an ordinance establishing

provisions to

restrict primary view

determinations within a

1,000-foot radius of the

Woolsey Fire affected

area and other disaster

areas.

• The council voted 4-1,

with Mullen dissenting,

to declare a climate

on an immediate just

transition and emergency

mobilization effort to

restore a safe climate.

for growth and the implications

on land use,” Feldman

said, adding that City staff

had no opinion on the matter.

“We’re here to present

the facts in the capacity of

the facility and let the council

decide on anything that

has any land use implications,”

Feldman said.

“I don’t see in any of these

properties a compelling need

to deviate from this complicated

system that we set up,”

Councilmember Rick Mullen

said before his vote to reject

any further applications.

“I understand particularly

the homeowners why they

would want to connect to it,

but at the same time I don’t

think expanding capacity is

what we should be doing

right now,” added Councilmember

Mikke Pierson.

Public Safety Commission

Edison, City highlight Public Safety Power Shutoff protocol

Duenas says City

is prepared for

scenario

Michele Willer-Allred

Freelance Reporter

Southern California Edison

officials advised Malibu

residents that they have

not utilized a Public Safety

Power Shutoff in Malibu

yet, but it could happen in

the upcoming fire season.

As such, residents should

be prepared to be without

power for several days.

“We realize [a PSPS] is a

critical decision that we’re

going to make that will impact

a large community, and

we don’t take that decision

lightly,” said Rudy Gonzales,

government relations

manager for SCE.

Gonzales spoke at a Sept.

4 Public Safety Commission

meeting at which a report

was given about the City’s

preparations for a PSPS.

Susan Duenas, the City’s

public safety manager, said

the City is prepared, especially

with their communications

plan with the public.

PSPS is a tool that SCE and

other electric companies

utilize in high-risk fire areas

if the conditions show that

there would be a fire danger

to having the power grid

still going when winds can

knock down lines.

Gonzales said flag warnings

aren’t going to necessarily

activate a shutoff. Instead,

meteorologists have

been hired by SCE to monitor

weather conditions, and

fire officials are consulted

before a PSPS.

Gonzales said SCE is in

the process of installing upwards

at the Public Safety Commission’s

Sept. 3 meeting.

Inspections began June

1, and reports provided

localized weather information.

They also are installing

160 high-definition

cameras for more visibility

of high fire risk areas. Gonzales

said SCE takes all that

information into account

when making a decision,

and will know several days

in advance if they need to

implement a PSPS.

They will notify the public

48 hours before it is

implemented, and again 24

hours before, he said.

“One of the considerations

we make before we

de-energize is what’s the

impact on the fire-fighting

capabilities,” said Gonzales.

Gonzales said that when a

PSPS is implemented, SCE

Malibu Planning Commission

Looming rain puts a rush on HRL slope repair project

Commission OKs

plan 4-0

Michele Willer-Allred

Freelance Reporter

The Malibu Planning

Commission gave the goahead

for a large failed

slope to be repaired and

restored on the HRL Laboratories

site before it has

the opportunity to damage

a main building constructed

in 1956 at the research facility.

At its Sept. 3 meeting,

the commission voted 4-0,

with Commissioner Chris

Marx absent, to approve an

administrative plan review

to allow for the repair of the

southwest-facing slope located

at 3011 Malibu Canyon

Road.

The APR would normally

be decided upon by Planning

Director Bonnie Blue.

The application, however,

requires a variance authorized

by the commission

because the slope repair requires

installation of retaining

walls on a slope steeper

than 2.5 to 1.

The project site is located

on a 65-acre parcel on the

north side of Malibu Canyon

Road. The property

is owned and operated by

HRL, which occupied the

property prior to the city’s

incorporation.

It is bordered by Pepperdine

University to the west,

Los Angeles County residentially

zoned parcels to

the north, and single-family

residences and Malibu Presbyterian

Church located

to the south across Malibu

Canyon Road.

The southwest portion of

the property where the slope

failure occurred contains

steep, descending slopes.

In 2007, a wildfire burned

the vegetation on the slope

south of the building. In

January 2016, the slope

failed and required all

sources of irrigation to be

turned off. Heavy rains followed,

and HRL ended up

placing waterproof plastic

and sandbags to mitigate

further erosion.

Associate Planner Raneika

Brooks said a geotechnical

consultant did some

testing and identified a leak

from a high-pressure line

which caused the slope to

fail.

The area of the slope repair

is approximately 2,965

square feet. Two retaining

walls six feet each in height

and 50 feet in length would

be supported by a total of

seven piles and include

draining improvements

such as concrete swells and

catch basins behind each

wall.

The project also would

include 1,700 cubic yards of

remedial grading, and 500

cubic yards of soil removal

and recompaction.

Five bollards also will

be installed adjacent to the

existing water line for increased

protection to prevent

the water line from

rupturing during slope repair.

A temporary access road

accessed at the base of the

hill also would be installed

for the slope repair.

Vladimir Levin, a civil

and structural engineer, said

HRL is aware of the extent

of the potential damage that

may occur to the property if

the hazard is not fully mitigated.

Levin said the head scar

on the failed slope is only

45 to 50 feet from the HRL

main building. He said that

any more slope failure may

undermine the building,

which has a shallow foundation.

Levin noted that the project

would take six to eight

months to complete. HRL

has less than two months

before the rainy season to

complete the project, which

is unrealistic, Levin said,

though HRL has a good

chance once the permit is

obtained to at least secure

a 12-inch diameter highpressure

line that runs parallel

to the building and

about five feet up from the

head scar.

“Maybe if time allows

[before the rainy season],

we can build one retaining

wall to secure the slope

because it’s too close to the

main building there,” he

said.

“Hopefully we can

get some stuff processed

through to get you guys

going, because you don’t

want that hillside coming

down,” Planning Chairman

Steve Uhring said prior to

the vote.

Planning Commissioner

John Mazza asked if the

project would impact traffic

on Malibu Road, but Levin

said it would not.

“Everything will be done

on the property there,”

Levin said.

HRL also agreed to a request

by Planning Commissioner

Kraig Hill that any

existing Environmentally

Sensitive Habitat Area impacted

to some degree by

the project will be restored.

Lease lapse drives SCE’s decision to vacate Bell property

Lauren Coughlin, Editor

Michele Willer-Allred

Freelance Reporter

On Aug. 19, the Malibu

Planning Commission approved

temporary use and

coastal development permits

that afforded Southern

California Edison the use of

the Bell property until the

end of 2019, or until their

local infrastructure work

was completed.

By the end of the week,

SCE, which has not completed

its work in Malibu,

had vacated the land.

Rudy Gonzales, government

relations manager at

SCE, told the Surfside that

the driving factor behind

their decision was the time

and expense to move material

and equipment out of

the yard for 18 days before

the new permit took effect.

“Our old permit expired

on Aug. 24 and our new

permit did not take effect till

Sept. 12,” Gonzales wrote

in an email to the Surfside.

“During this time we would

not have been allowed to

operate out of the yard.

Since we would likely be

complete with our existing

scope of work in Malibu

sometime in late October, it

didn’t make economic sense

to make two moves for that

short time frame.”

Planning Chairman Steve

Uhring said at the commission’s

Sept. 3 meeting that

he spoke with Gonzales,

“At least SCE was doing

something to help harden the city

in the face of the next fire. Whole

Foods was having a party.”

Steve Uhring — Malibu Planning Commission

chairman, on permit issuances

who told him the same reason.

Uhring questioned why

the Planning Department

was keeping SCE off the

property.

“The Planning Commission

basically thought that

keeping SCE on the property

and getting the repairs

done was sort of a health

and safety issue, [but] you

guys didn’t think so?”

Uhring asked Planning Director

Bonnie Blue.

“No, it’s not that at all,”

Blue said. “It’s that the code

requires that the decision by

the planning director be issued

24 days before the permit

is issued.”

Uhring questioned how

Whole Foods got a TUP

generated 48 hours before

an event for the grand opening

of the market.

“At least SCE was doing

something to help harden

the city in the face of the

next fire,” Uhring said.

“Whole Foods was having

a party.”

Planning Commissioner

John Mazza asked if the

resolutions the Planning

Commission set for the Bell

property must still be followed,

and if Bell or SCE

will still need to dig up all

the gravel that was placed

on the property.

Blue confirmed that the

Conditional Development

Permit runs with the land.

Blue noted that the project

was appealed to the Coastal

Commission on Sept. 3.

Meanwhile, SCE will

operate out of its Moorpark

construction yard and Thousand

Oaks service center,

Gonzales said.

“Our current scope of

work will likely be complete

at the end of October,

however, we have begun

additional inspections of

our facilities that will likely

result in additional work,”

he added.

Gonzales also said SCE

intended to restore the land.

“We are waiting for direction

from City staff on the

development of a restoration

plan,” he said.

Male mountain lion found dead on the 405

‘Coastal Cat’

crosses the 101

to leave the Santa

Monica Mountains

Lauren Coughlin, Editor

National Park Service

officials shared a mix of

good and bad news this

past week in regard to the

mountain lions in its study.

First, the bad. P-61, the

male mountain lion that

crossed the 405 Freeway

on July 19, was killed on

the same 10-lane freeway

around 4 a.m. Saturday,

Sept. 7, between Bel Air

Crest Road and the Sepulveda

Boulevard underpass,

NPS Ranger Ana Beatriz

stated in a Facebook post

later that day.

Researchers had hailed

P-61’s successful freeway

crossing in July as an opportunity

for scientists to

learn, as he was the first

GPS collared mountain lion

in NPS’ study to make that

particular trek.

“Researchers are not

sure why P-61 decided to

try and cross the 405 Freeway

again,” Beatriz wrote.

“Based on his GPS points,

he had been staying close

to the eastern edge of the

405 more recently. Over

the last few years, we and

others have gotten remote

camera photos of an uncollared

male mountain lion

that apparently lives in that

area. A negative encounter

between the two could have

caused P-61 to move back

west.”

The 405 has proven fatal

for several mountain lions

that have tried to cross it. A

young male, P-18, was hit

by a car in the same Sepulveda

Pass area in 2011 and

another uncollared male

lion was killed in 2009.

Meanwhile, a female

lion — whose entire home

range in the central Santa

Monica Mountains was

burned by the Woolsey Fire

— successfully traversed

the 101 Freeway and went

into the Simi Hills between

midnight and 2 a.m. on

Aug. 21.

On Sept. 4, the National

Park Service announced

that P-65 crossed the 101

Freeway and went into the

Simi Hills between midnight

and 2 a.m. on Aug.

21. NPS has given P-65 the

national park service

nickname “Coastal Cat”

for her inclination to stick

to the coastal areas west of

Las Virgenes Road.

“Researchers are not

sure exactly where she

crossed along the 101, but

GPS data indicates it was

in the Liberty Canyon area

of Agoura Hills where a

wildlife bridge has been

proposed,” a Facebook post

written by Beatriz states.

“She was not picked up on

any of our remote cameras

monitoring wildlife movement

through a culvert or

underpass in this area, so

biologists believe she most

likely ran across the actual

roadway. P-65 has stayed

up north and only crossed

the freeway once.”

Another female mountain

lion, P-33, followed a

similar path, though on the

far western end of the Santa

Monicas, when she crossed

the 101 in March 2015.

P-65 is now the second

radio-collared female in the

NPS study of mountain lions

to achieve this feat.

Liberty Canyon funding

update

On Aug. 28, the Wildlife

Conservation Board approved

a $390,000 grant

to restore and enhance the

Liberty Canyon wildlife

underpass, which was damaged

by the Woolsey Fire.

The grant is to be provided

to the Resource Conservation

District of the

Santa Monica Mountains

for a cooperative project

with Caltrans, the Santa

Monica Mountains Conservancy,

and the Mountains

and Recreation Conservation

Authority. According

to the board, the Woolsey

Fire completely destroyed

the reclaimed water irrigation

system installed for the

Liberty Canyon Wildlife

Crossing Project, approximately

80-90 percent of

the native plants that were

installed, and around 20

percent of the cobble and

boulders installed.

CWC highlights spike in shark-driven rescues

Rescuers aided

5 sea lions bit by

sharks this summer

Lauren Coughlin, Editor

During the month of

July, the California Wildlife

Center aided five sea

lions with injuries allegedly

inflicted by sharks —

a number on par with what

the center would typically

see in a full year, according

to a Sept. 4 blog post

by Mike Remski, marine

program manager at the

facility.

One of those incidents,

as previously reported in

the Surfside, occurred July

4 at Pirates Cove Beach,

on the west side of Point

Dume. The juvenile, female

sea lion appeared to

have been bitten by a great

white shark, and Heather

Henderson, CWC’s marine

mammal coordinator,

said the sea lion was

likely bitten en route

from the Channel Islands.

Though the sea lion was

responsive when rescuers

arrived, it was ultimately

euthanized.

“It’s important to understand

that the increase in

shark-bitten stranded sea

lions does not necessarily

reflect an increase in the

number of sharks present,”

the post states. “After all,

we are only able to count

the number of sea lions

that survive the attack and

make it to shore, while the

ones that die at sea and/or

become food, will not be

accounted for. Also, there

is no way to tell where

the attack occurred, since

a wounded sea lion can

swim many miles before

beaching.”

Remski further notes

that sea lions, seals and

fish are included in the

diets of great white and

mako sharks, but the increased

activity has rescuers

scratching their heads.

One possibility, Remski

writes, is that the non-lethal

bites may be caused

by young/inexperienced

sharks.

“Since July, these shark

bite occurrences have tapered

off, which is good

news for the rescue team

and it also seems to calm

the nerves of the general

public,” Remski wrote.

“But as long as you’re not

a sea lion, you really have

very little to worry about.”

SMMUSD Board of Education

Expanded Chromebook rollout penciled in for this month

Michele Willer-Allred

Freelance Reporter

Students and teachers in

the Santa Monica-Malibu

Unified School District can

expect new technology and

software this school year.

As part of the Digital

Learning Program, more

students will soon receive

Chromebooks.

Bertha Roman, the district’s

director of educational

services, gave a technology

services update to the

SMMUSD Board of Education

during the meeting on

Thursday, Sept. 5.

Last year, the district expanded

the use of Chromebooks

at all school sites, and

rolled out to different grade

levels at different times.

With earlier approval of a

$1 million allocation by the

board, Roman said the district

is planning to deploy

1-to-1 Chromebooks for

students in grades 9 and 11

by the end of September.

Another part of the district’s

program is professional

development for

staff, and the district is encouraging

and providing

stipends to staff to pursue

McDermott

certifications, such as the

Common Sense Educator

Certification and Google

certifications.

Two different softwares

— by GoGuardian and

Hapara — also are being

piloted in classrooms by 27

teachers this month.

Roman said the software

is being offered because

the district heard from staff

that they wanted the ability

to have more control of students’

Chromebook use. She

said this software allows

teachers to monitor what

students are doing with their

Chromebooks in the classroom,

and also allows for

more efficient learning.

Roman also noted that

the district has adopted the

Common Sense Education

curriculum, which she said

supports K-12 schools with

everything educators need

to empower the next generation

of digital citizens.

Roman said the district

encourages teachers to become

Common Sense educators

and utilize the free

Common Sense Digital

Citizenship curriculum.

One parent expressed displeasure

with the district’s

technology use.

Ann Thanawalla, a Santa

“shocked and awed by the

amount of digital technology

that’s being forced upon

[her] child and other children

in all formats.”

Thanawalla also had concerns

that her family’s private

information is being

sold and used by outside

companies.

Board Member Oscar de

la Torre also questioned access

to students’ data, and

said students should understand

the possibility that

their data can be used to

market and promote. Contracts

with these companies,

he said, should include that

no data should be sold.

but I don’t think we’re

in that space in the world

right now,” Drati said.

Drati added that with every

organization that the

district goes through, there

is an understanding and

agreement that information

is not to be shared out to

anywhere else.

Board Member Jon Kean

said he wasn’t too concerned.

“I don’t have this Big

Brother attitude where I

think everyone is out to

steal my information and

profit off of me,” Kean said.

“I don’t love the fact that

everything is [online] … but

it’s the world that we’re in.

I don’t think we as a district

are going to slam the brakes

on technology.”

Board Member Ralph

Mechur said the board

should do whatever they can

to protect students’ information.

He said the district also

should be asking students

what digital tools are and

are not working for them.

Kimya Afshar, a Malibu

High School student and

board student representative,

said students love their

Chromebooks, which have

made learning a lot easier.

Afshar did say that while

working with the Chromebook

on a class project, she

was unable to access many

websites needed for the assignment.

She asked how

the district differentiates

between explicit and nonexplicit

websites, and how

that can be changed to accommodate

students.

Roman said the district

will need to gather feedback

from teachers as to

what websites are appropriate

for student use, and that

appropriate websites can be

unblocked by teachers on

command.

Roman said she was happy

to hear Google Classroom is

being used on Chromebooks

at Malibu schools.

“I know that last year after

the fires there was a big push

that all teachers in Malibu

Middle and High schools

have Google Classroom so

that they can communicate

with students,” said Roman,

adding that Santa Monica

during public comment.

“So, all these wonderful

they being implemented

now after the fact?” she

asked. “Why not two years

Duenas said preparation

efforts were going on in the

past, but people didn’t really

hear about it or pay attention

because it wasn’t top

of mind. She admitted that

there’s still a lot of work to

be done with regard to preparedness

“I can work 24 hours a

still wouldn’t be able to do

Don’t Panic, It’s Organic

The many recipes for organic fly control

Andy Lopez

Invisible Gardener

Contributing Columnist

Many horse owners

struggle with

organically controlling

flies.

The most crucial aspect

of natural fly control is

manure control. To me,

that means turning manure

into compost. Many cities

have issues with piles of

manure that attract flies and

also leak into rivers and the

ocean; this is understandable.

So, I will lightly cover

some of the basics of

natural fly control as well

as some compost basics.

Biological fly control

Biological fly control

is a simple method of

eliminating flies before

they become pests that can

spread diseases and become

a nuisance to you and your

horses. Since it is biological,

pesticides are not required.

These are harmless,

gnat-sized fly parasites and

are a natural enemy of flies.

They deposit eggs in the fly

pupa, destroying the fly in

its pupal stage. For best results,

follow instructions as

to how many and when to

release the parasites. I suggest

using Fly Eliminators,

available from arbico.com,

but there are many on the

market. Fly Eliminators are

used by horse and livestock

owners, and do not bother

horses, cattle, livestock,

pets or plants.

Manure control

Remove manure and treat

heavily urinated areas with

a garden grade or foodgrade

DE. Odor control will

help eliminate fly-breeding

habitats. EM-1, a microbial

spray, can used to reduce

and eradicate breeding

areas. The bacteria in EM-1

breaks down decaying

organic matter that attracts

adult flies.

SCD Barn Kleaner/SCD

ScentGuard works similarly

to EM-1. Barn Kleaner

can be applied directly

to manure to speed up

decomposition. Compost

waste, repair leaking water

and keep food storage dry.

The best manure control is

turning it into compost!

Maggot control

Use Beneficial Nematodes

near manure and

other breeding areas to

control maggots.

NemAttack are Beneficial

Nematodes which

parasitize a wide variety

of common pest insects,

including maggots. After

two weeks, noticeable

reductions in target pest

populations will occur and

therefore must be applied

regularly.

BalEnce Fly Spray can

be used to treat breeding

areas and stalls to kill maggots

as they develop. This

contains a beneficial fungus

used for insect control in

gardens, farms and livestock

settings.

Hister beetles are commonly

released in poultry

facilities for biological

fly control. Hister beetles

feed on fly eggs and larvae

(maggots). Both larvae

and adult hister beetles are

predatory. They are also

available from arbico.com.

Garden Grade or Food

Grade Diatomaceous Earth

is an effective abrasive that

works within 48 hours of

contact to kill soft-bodied

maggots. You can feed

your horses food-grade DE,

which will not hurt them

but will control flies in their

manure as well as help

them control any worms

they may have. Garden

Grade DE can be added to

water and sprayed on the

manure piles and around

the barn. It becomes effective

when it dries.

Adult fly control

Trapping adult flies and

spraying your animals is effective

in controlling adult

flies.

A solar fly trap, a longlasting

aluminum trap, attracts

and catches adult flies

with a yeast bait. Each trap

comes with one bait pack,

enough for five weeks.

Rinse the trap out and add

more bait to use it from

season to season.

Another option is the Insect-A-Peel

System, which

can be used in barns, fields,

gardens and greenhouses.

Yellow sticky tape can

be hung in barns, around

pastures and other areas

with large fly numbers. It is

sticky on both sides and can

be cut for spot treatment

uses. Add essential oils as

attractants for specific pest

insects.

ARBICO Organics Holistic

Fly Defense is an essential

oil-based insect repellent

for horses, livestock and

pets. Holistic Fly Defense

repels manure flies, biting

flies, mosquitoes and more.

Espree Aloe Herbal

Horse Spray — a nonirritating

repellent spray

that uses essential oils to

repel flies — is a favorite of

horse owners! Rinse off after

every third application.

Compost production

It is highly advisable

to turn all of your animal

manure into healthy, clean

compost.

You do this in stages.

First, make a mixture of

one part rock dust blend.

Try blending as many different

sources of rock that

you can get. The variety

will provide you with a balance

of minerals. Rock dust

also is a certain percentage

of Silica, which is what DE

is mostly. By adding this

blend, you also will be controlling

the flies as well as

providing the need for trace

minerals. Rock dust, when

added to manure, binds

the nutrients, 1/10 part of

the microbial blend. There

are many microbials in the

market — some made by

the various biodynamic

groups on the internet. The

more varied, the better.

Just Google biodynamic

formulas.

Compost production sources

Down to Earth (1-800-

234-5932) has all the rock

dust you will need. The

ones to get for this area are

azomite, gypsum, sulfate

of potash, calphos and rock

phosphate.

They also carry Bokashi,

which will help in the composting

process.

Blend the rock dust

in equal amounts. For

example, 50 pounds of each

blended, except for the

soft rock phosphate, which

should be used at half the

amount. So 25 pounds per

every 100 pounds of the

other rock dust. Follow instructions

as to the application

of the Bokashi.

Arbico (1-800-827-2847)

has EM-1 Microbial Inoculant

and SCD Probiotic Barn

Kleaner. Follow instructions

as to application rate. It can

be sprayed directly onto

the manure piles as well as

when first collected.

Biodynamic Association

(262-649-9212)

has compost preparations

#502,503,504,505

,506,507, and spray preparations

#500.

The Josephine Porter

Institute for Applied Biodynamics

(540-745-7030) is

another good source, as is

biodynamicsource.org and

Earth Legacy Agriculture

(earthlegacyagriculture.

com; 276-930-1377)

Ashley’s Angle

Malibu’s falling sky — a call to action

Ashley Hamilton

Contributing columnist

Malibu resident

As the days darken

and the nights

become darker,

as summer segues into

fall — and fall fades into

the winter of our discontent

— the sky foretells the

fate of much more than our

surfside community.

The sky is our fate, what

with its curtain of smog

and its veil of particulate,

turning the sunsets into

a shroud of gray; blocking

the light rather than

beautifying the land with

a burst of bold colors and

bright stars; deepening our

depression by depriving us

of natural light.

To see the light we must

learn the truth, that we

must stop the fast undoing

of the heavens and the

Earth. We must accept our

right to do right: to reverse

our descent into the past,

where the air is unbreathable,

the water undrinkable,

the ground unlivable.

We can avoid that scenario

if we join together

the lights of faith and

reason, with firmness in

the right as God gives us to

see the right, with confidence

in the rightness of

our cause as all may see

the evidence is right.

Do not, therefore, take my

word as gospel. Do not take

the Word as the sole reason

to do right, either, because

many agnostics and atheists

share our devotion, in spite

of their belief in a celestial

origin for a providential creation,

in spite of their faith

in a book, On the Origin of

Species, rather than their

rejection of the People of the

Book.

What divides us is

minor, in contrast to what

unites us. Faith is, after all,

meaningless without acts.

Acts of restoration. Acts

of conservation. Acts of

preservation.

Unless we act now, we

will lose our right to act

later — in the face of a

storm whose clouds continue

to gather, whose might

and fury will continue to

grow until the imminent

becomes inevitable.

Unless we acknowledge

the obvious, that we are

not prisoners to history but

participants in the writing

of it, that doom is not a

matter of destiny but an issue

of choice, that we have

the right to choose our

destination, be it a world of

shame or a shrine of glory;

unless we choose to avert

catastrophe, we will reap

the consequences of our

choice to do nothing.

I wonder about the arc of

human kindness.

I hope it does, arc, not

just plummet,

fatal, off a cliff.

Hundertwasser maintains

the straight line

is godless. That explains

how humanity

bends and strays, even as

I believe

a power invests each

moment,

a spontaneity to which,

in our curving

we may meet again, and

again.

Haven’t you?

But this is not easy.

It will not be kind.

Don’t look, away.

I find respite, kindness

here

at Chiriaco Summit,

three hours east of Los

Angeles,

where 92 degrees becomes

balm

beneath tamarisk and

palms,

where seven Mary’s

stand, palms clasped,

in an alcove, listening to

water burble,

praying for travellers.

“Do you know what kind

of tree

that is?” I ask, pointing

to what

may be a jacaranda tree.

“I don’t know,” he says.

“I don’t know about

trees.”

Is that what ails us?

We don’t know about

trees.

He looks to be a teen.

What does he know, or

dream

as he sweeps the patio?

What could these trees

tell him?

Hope is the Thing

Yesterday I opened the

newspaper.*

It was a front page photo

of a person of the forest,

a face between bars,

looking out.

I looked away, too late.

Curiosity bested me.

I turned to page 8, read

enough

to moan, and stop.

This is not . . .

is happening.

Forests cleared for palm

oil plantations.

Forests home to these

people of the forest.

Villagers tried to scare

her off,

this Mother with her

baby.

She wouldn’t leave.

There was no where to

go.

Her forest destroyed,

burned.

There was no where to

go.

She wouldn’t leave.

They shot at her, 74

pellets

lodging in her body, in

her eyes,

blinding her, lacerated

by spears,

bones broken. Still, she

wouldn’t leave.

Her forest, her home, her

food gone.

Then a teenager came,

an economic migrant,

and stole her baby, to

sell.

Now the mother, a Sumatran

orangutan,

sightless and caged,

lives, quarantined

with the Sumatran

Orangutan

Conservation Program.

There, where

other orphans whimper

and squeak,

where she hears them,

curling into

herself, on her absent

baby, and cries.

They named her Hope.

The father of the teen

accused

of taking her baby, asks,

“Is this a fair world in

which my son’s life

is worth less than an

orangutan’s?”

These migrants, come to

work

in palm oil plantations,

suffer, too.

No jobs. No future.

Is this a fair world?

I ask my 90-year-old

neighbor

what she sees for the

future.

“Disaster. I’m glad I

won’t be here to see it.”

But I am not 90. I must

listen, must find

a way to abide. Inside, I

scream,

“This is not happening.”

But it is.

So I listen, as the Xhosa

do in their rituals,

the whole village gathered,

listening

to the suffering, bearing

it together.

How else can we heal?

How else

lengthen the arc of kindness,

overcome blame?

We all perpetrate, become

victims.

All.

All have a stake on this

Earth.

Can we bear to look, be

generous enough

to forgive? Now I read

ingredients, refuse

to purchase chocolate or

lipstick

it is important to remember

lost their lives on that

tragic day. For some of

victims’ faces and names

9/11.

Many things in our world

have changed since that

that does not lessen the

importance of remembering

what occurred all these

By now, the university’s

Daniel Caplan

Daniel Adam Caplan, 40, passed away

peacefully on August 29, 2019 from a heart

condition. Daniel was raised in Malibu and

graduated in the first class of Malibu High

School. Following high school, Daniel went on to UC Santa Cruz.

He moved to Salt Lake City in 2009 and worked as a compliance

manager at E-Bay. Daniel was a kind and thoughtful man who made

friends easily and loved his family, people and pets. While growing

up in Malibu, he loved surfing. In Salt Lake City, he spent his free

time snowboarding Park City in the winter and hiking the trails in

the Wasatch Mountains in the spring and summer. Daniel is survived

by his mother, Linda, his sister, Carole Webb, her husband Dan Webb

and his nephews, Lucas and Benny. Daniel is pre-deceased by his

father, David. Daniel is also survived by his many aunts, uncles and

cousins who will miss his engaging smile and infectious personality

and sense of humor.

Introducing Malibu Pacific Church

Malibu Presbyterian

carries on under

new name

Madison Petrilli lead the University Ministries program

Pacific Church (previously known as Malibu Presbyterian

Church). Photos by Jill Butta/University Ministries Intern

Malibu Presbyterian

Church has been a landmark

in Malibu since 1944

and its resilient congregation

has weathered many

a storm and fire over the

years.

The church was one of

the 21 structures destroyed

in the October 2007 fire

that roared through Malibu

Canyon. While the new,

streamlined, fire-resistant

church was being built,

the congregation’s parishioners

were hosted by

the Malibu Jewish Community

Center and Synagogue,

Malibu City Hall

and Webster Elementary

School. “Mal Pres,” as the

church is often colloquially

referred to, is a stalwart

member of Malibu’s faith

community.

Now, the congregation

is writing a new chapter in

its storied Malibu history

under a new name: Malibu

Pacific Church.

[The new name] denotes

that we are an open, welcoming

congregation, both

in Malibu and regionally,”

Senior Pastor Greg Hughes

said. “Further, Pacific

means peace.”

Although the church remains

affiliated with the

Presbyterian faith, Hughes

noted that the new name

“is more indicative of our

expansive outreach to all

in the community.” The

name change was officially

approved by the congregation

at its annual congregational

party on Aug. 23.

Malibu Pacific Church

sits on the hill overlooking

Pepperdine on Malibu

Canyon Road, its beautiful

decks providing an expansive

view of the sea. The

congregation continues

to welcome people of all

faiths and also will carry

on its tradition of hosting

events that welcome the

entire community.

Hughes noted that Malibu

Pacific Church will

continue its longstanding

tradition of serving Pepperdine

students through

its popular University

Ministries.

“Our congregation carries

on its tradition of serving

all ages and faiths,”

Hughes said.

The church has nursery

school and church preschool

programs, offerings

for youth, teens, parents

and older adults, as well

as community and international

humanitarian outreach

ministries.

On Aug. 27, University

Ministries, the college fellowship

and outreach program

of Malibu Pacific

Church, hosted roughly

100 students as it kicked

Tracy Weirick (left) and

Saona Jackson, both on

staff at Malibu Pacific

Church, planned the recent

event together.

off its 28th year with a

UM County Fair complete

with games, prizes, a petting

zoo, a mechanical

surfboard ride, and homecooked

fare. Attendees

came together for a message

and worship to conclude

the night.

‘Color in Bloom’ showcases Malibu sculptor’s new work

Barbara Burke

Freelance Reporter

His stainless steel and

patinated bronze and aluminum

sculptures are

featured worldwide in

public spaces and private

collections. One, a stainless

steel cross, even graces

Ground Zero, standing

tall over the site where

the Twin Towers fell to

terrorism.

Sculptor Jon Krawczyk

and his family, like

many other Malibuites,

suffered a great loss when

the Woolsey Fire destroyed

their Latigo Canyon

home and Krawczyk’s

art studio.

Grieving and grappling

with the loss and trauma,

Krawczyk, an avid naturalist

who raises bees and

grows flowers, reached

out to fans, asking them to

send him wildflower seeds.

He and his family spread

250 pounds of seeds on the

scorched and scarred landscape,

and the super bloom

that followed inspired him

to create the sculptures featured

in “Color in Bloom,”

an exhibit that premiered

at the Leslie Sacks Gallery

at Bergamot Station in

Santa Monica on Saturday,

Sept. 7.

A large crowd of admirers

attended the exhibit’s

opening reception.

“I never really used

color in my works before

the fire,” Krawczyk said.

“However, seeing the super

bloom motivated me

and made me unafraid to

use color so, because of

the fire, part of my artistic

process changed and I segued

from creating all stark,

monochromatic works to

‘Color in Bloom’

What: This art exhibition featuring vivid sculptures by

Malibu’s Jon Krawczyk opened on Saturday, Sept. 7,

and remains on display through Nov. 2.

Where: Leslie Sacks Gallery at the Bergamot Station

Arts Center, 2525 Michigan Avenue, Suite B6, Santa

Monica

Hours

10 a.m.-6 p.m. Tuesday-Friday; 11 a.m.-6 p.m.

Saturday

com.

throwing color in the process.”

Sometimes, as the old

adage says, change is

good and Krawczyk’s experience

with the fire has

imbued his large, geometric

silver sculptures

with intense, neon colors

that enhance angular,

geometric shapes. The

highly polished works jubilantly

celebrate victory

over adversity, resilience

overcoming grief, and optimism

overshadowing despair.

“The works in this exhibit

are clean and much

more vibrant than my earlier

works,” he said.

Simon Miles studiously

surveyed some of the

sculptures.

“I feel that they’re almost

deconstructed modern

pieces reminiscent of

Vegas glitz,” Miles said.

“Look, each piece has

extremely strong colors

like the hallmarks of Vegas

hotels, and they’re

joyous.”

Miles admired the works

in a room where large pieces

with fun and intriguing

names such as “Wonderland,”

and “Lime Time”

danced amidst others entitled

“Pero Azul” and

“Rocket,” their marriage

between stainless steel

and cobalt blue, pinks of

magenta and cerise hues,

chartreuse and riveting red

reflecting and bouncing

across one another.

Judy Bedrosian smiled

as she leaned in and enjoyed

the vibrancy, the

freedom and fluidity of the

works — emotive, yet introspective

and embracing

viewers in a nuanced narrative

celebrating survival

and revival.

“I love the angles; it’s

totally Jon,” Bedrosian

said. “He is so extremely

talented and I have several

of his pieces in my back

yard and enjoy them so

much.”

Hope. Color. Celebration.

Innovation.

Krawcyzk’s works

and his new use of color

serve to support his native

Malibu as it heals

and surges.

Sculptor Jon Krawczyk’s latest work,

which was inspired by a super bloom

following the Woolsey Fire, is on display

at the Leslie Sacks Gallery in Santa

Despite a third-set comeback

win, Pepperdine was

felled by the attack efforts

of Texas A&M on Saturday,

Sept. 7, in Firestone

Fieldhouse to close out the

final day of the Pepperdine

Tournament.

After trailing by two

with 25-17 and 25-19 set

losses, the Waves countered

with a 25-19 third set

win, but Pepperdine (3-3)

was unable to rally in the

fourth as the Aggies’ (4-2)

offensive efforts proved

too strong for a final 25-15

set score.

Shannon Scully and Rachel

Ahrens each marked

double-figure kills with 18

and 13, respectively.

The match and first set

started with a close backand-forth

output by both

sides, but Texas A&M had

the early edge off a 3-1

open and advanced it to

14-9 later in the set. Despite

six kills from Shannon

Scully in the set, the

Aggies were able to close

it down with a 25-17 set

win.

The Aggies came out

equally as strong in the

second set, amassing a

4-0 lead to open things up.

After establishing a 17-8

lead throughout the set,

the Waves started to battle

back, and kills from Kayleigh

Hames and Scully

and a block from Scully

and Tarah Wylie brought

the home team within six

at the 23-17 mark. TAMU

was able to pick up the

second set 25-19 win,

however.

Pepperdine more than

rallied in the third — the

Waves commanded the

set, taking the lead after a

7-7 tie fueled on a block

from Alli O’Harra and

Ahrens and three consecutive

kills by Wylie for the

18-10 advantage. The Aggies

pieced some points together

near the end of the

set, but Pepperdine came

right back, and back-toback

kills by Scully put

the Waves in a position to

close. Rachel Ahrens and

O’Harra would do just that

for the home team, as the

pair put a couple of kills

on the floor to close the set

with a 25-19 win and send

things to a fourth.

In the fourth set, despite

a 5-5 tie to open, the Aggies

came out swinging to take

over the lead and put the

Waves behind 18-10. Kills

from Hames and O’Harra

late in the set helped the

cause, but couldn’t help

Pepperdine rally enough,

as the opposition closed

the match with a 25-15 set

win for the four-set overall

victory.

MEN’S WATER POLO

Waves start season at

Triton Invitational

Pepperdine began its

season at the Triton Invitational,

hosted by UC San

Diego, on Saturday, Sept.

7. The Waves picked up a

12-7 win against Pomona-

Pitzer to start the tournament,

but fell 11-5 to UC

Santa Barbara in the second

game of the day.

Sophomore Balazs Kosa

led the way for the Waves

with a hat trick in the game

against Pomona.

The year’s first game got

off to a slow start, with each

team putting just a goal on

the board in the first quarter.

Kosa got the Waves’

first goal of the season to

secure a 1-1 tie at the end

of the first.

Kosa scored the Waves’

lone goal in the second

quarter as well, as the

teams went into halftime

locked at two goals apiece.

In the second half, the

Waves’ offense really got

going. Marko Asic and

Kaden Kaneko each scored

their first goals of the season,

and Kosa finished off

his hat trick in the third,

giving the Waves a 5-3 lead

heading into the final eight

minutes of play.

Pepperdine took off in

the fourth quarter, getting

seven goals from six players.

Curtis Jarvis led the

way with two goals late in

the final quarter. Kaneko

and Asic scored their second

goal each, while Sean

Ferrari, Michael Dakis and

Sean Thomas tallied a goal

apiece to secure the 12-7

win for the Waves.

In the second game of

the day, the Waves took on

the Gauchos of UC Santa

Barbara. The first quarter

was all UC Santa Barbara,

as they scored three unanswered

goals to start the

game before Mate Toth got

the Waves on the board.

After one quarter of play,

the Gauchos lead 4-1.

Asic started the second

quarter off hot for the

Waves, getting them within

two at the start of the quarter.

Coleman Carpenter got

the Waves to within one

before UCSB answered.

Austin Smit again got the

Waves to within one goal

near the end of the quarter.

The Gauchos scored two

unanswered goals to end

the half with a 7-4 lead.

In the third quarter, the

Gauchos kept the Waves

from scoring, and scored

twice more to take a 9-4

lead into the final quarter

of play. George Mooney

scored the Waves’ only

goal in the final period of

play.

WOMEN’S SOCCER

Cal Poly takes down

Pepperdine

Pepperdine’s first road

match of the season ended

in defeat.

Despite more than doubling

Cal Poly in shot attempts,

the host Mustangs

claimed a 2-1 victory Friday,

Sept. 6.

The Mustangs (1-3-1)

scored the game’s first two

goals before sophomore

forward Leyla McFarland

put the Waves on the board

in the 57th minute. But despite

advantages of 20-9 in

shots and 11-6 in shots on

goal, the Waves couldn’t

find the equalizer.

The Waves had their

opportunities. Freshman

midfielder Shelby Little

had a chance from close in

the 28th minute but had it

saved. Junior forward Joelle

Anderson put four of

her seven shots on goal. In

the 86th minute, the Waves

sent in a free kick and it

came out of a crowd and off

the crossbar.

Rabinowich climbs Mount Kilimanjaro, fulfills childhood dream

Michal Dwojak

Assistant Editor

Menachem Rabinowich

didn’t place any limits on

a dream he had as a young

child.

The Malibu High School

student and football player

had a dream to climb

Mount Kilimanjaro after

reading a book in eighth

grade. He was so motivated

after reading the book that

he started working toward

reaching his goal, raising

money for two years in

order to pay for all of the

travel and necessary expenses.

Rabinowich was prepared.

He trained for a year,

packed his bag and was

ready to go. But one thing

stopped him: his dad’s

permission. His dad didn’t

sign the permission form

in order for Rabinowich to

participate, taking away a

chance for him to reach his

dream.

But that didn’t stop Rabinowich.

He knew he wanted

to complete the climb

before he went off to college,

so this past summer

was his last chance, and he

wasn’t going to let it go.

He worked construction

for a summer, saving just

enough for the cheapest

seats to make the trip over

to Africa. His parents said

he could go if he worked

enough to raise the money,

so it was on him to make

his dream come true.

Rabinowich went

through a tough journey,

but it was all worth it when

he made it to the top.

“It was amazing,” Rabinowich

said. “Even on the

last day I had every symptom

of high-altitude sickness

except for blood. I was

sick, I was dizzy, I had my

guide next to me, watching

me of course. I got to the

point where you can’t turn

around because it’s dark

outside. ... I had to keep on

pushing to the top.”

Rabinowich’s trip included

three stops. He took a

bus trip and then flew to Kenya

followed by a bus trip

to Tanzania, where Mount

Kilimanjaro is located. He

met his guide and then met

his group the next day and

started the climb. He did the

shortest but most-difficult

route because of the limited

time he had and he climbed

in five days, rather than the

typical six.

The biggest difference

between his climb was he

didn’t do any of the acclimation

days others did.

Normally, travelers climb

a little higher and then go

back down to become acclimated

with the new altitude,

but Rabinowich continued

to climb.

“I would’ve liked to be

a lot more prepared than I

was,” Rabinowich said. “I

don’t think I was in the tiptop

shape I should’ve been

in, but I did football, I run, I

lift weight. I was always in

shape, but I should’ve done

a lot more. I wasn’t in training

mode.”

He continued to climb,

despite the different obstacles

he faced. He didn’t

turn around or give up on

his dream, so when he got

to the top, it was worth everything.

“I was completely exhausted,”

Rabinowich said.

“I wanted to turn around

and climb back into my

sleeping bag. I just had

the biggest rush of adrenaline

and joy for about 10

minutes. No matter how

Malibu High school student Menachem Rabinowich poses during a safari at the Maasai Mara National Park in Kenya

in August. photos submitted

exhausted I was, I was

jumping up and down and

hugging everyone.”

The Malibu student went

down the same day he got

to the top, but went on a

safari during his trip to get

the full experience. The trip

also opened his eyes to the

world and the different cultures

it has to offer. He met

people from France, Germany,

and different countries

in Asia, and learned

more about the world than

he expected.

Rabinowich continued

to work for a dream that

he had when a book inspired

him. He faced some

adversity, but won’t forget

the memories that he made

on this summer journey,

and the lessons he learned

about himself.

“I wanted to give up

at every turn, I was sick

from the altitude, I was

stumbling almost, I was

pushing,” Rabinowich

said. “When I got to the

top, it didn’t matter what

just happened, what I did

to get there — I was there.

I didn’t care about anything

else.

“I’ll always remember it.”

Interview by Assistant Editor

Michal Dwojak

Coach applauds

team’s defense in

22-8 victory

Ryan Flynn

Freelance Reporter

What a difference a week

makes.

Malibu (1-1) earned

its first win of the season

on Friday, Sept. 6, on the

road against Dymally High

School. The 22-8 victory

was the first of rookie head

coach Steven Hernandez’s

career.

“It feels great,” he said.

“We’ve still got a lot of

things to work on. Our defense

was the best I’ve seen

— after watching all kinds

of 8-man football — the

best that I’ve seen in a very,

very long time.”

Junior Braedin Taylor

was particularly effective

on the defensive side

of the ball, as Hernandez

deployed the speedy playmaker

all over the field.

“I’m taking him out to

dinner tonight for sure,”

Hernandez said.

Malibu jumped out to a

7-0 lead early on thanks to

a fumble recovery by senior

Marcus Berns, which he

returned for a touchdown.

After a Dymally score and

two-point conversion in

the second quarter, Malibu

scored on a Roenster Santizo

to Taylor touchdown

pass to go up 14-8. They

would never again relinquish

the lead.

The Malibu defense, Hernandez

said, played fantastic.

They were timing the

ball correctly and attacking

the snap. When he tried to

sub out several players, they

asked to remain in the game

and keep playing.

Malibu High School senior Marcus Berns helped the

Sharks jump out to an early 7-0 lead during the team’s

Sept. 6 road matchup at Dymally High School in Los

Angeles. Surfside News File Photo

“They said ‘coach, I can

give you another seven

minutes,’ ‘I can give you

another eight minutes,’”

Hernandez said.

Neither team’s offense

looked great. Berns remains

a solid option in the

running game, but otherwise

things are a work in

progress. Dymally couldn’t

do anything offensively in

the second half, as Malibu

consistently turned them

over, stopped them short

and in one case tackled

their punter for a safety.

Windward awaits in two

weeks, a game that Malibu

will host on homecoming

night. Hernandez plans to

spend those two weeks almost

exclusively focused

on offense. His quarterback,

a freshman, remains

a little skittish and Hernandez

plans to get him used

to “hearing feet” and not

rushing his throws or altering

his form.

“If we get our offense

clicking the way I know we

can, we’ll be a problem,”

the coach said.

Until then, the Sharks

can enjoy their first win in

the Hernandez era.

“We’ll do a little celebrating

these next couple

days but after that it’s time

to get back and let’s get to

business,” Hernandez said.
