Fair Game

By TOM JOHNSON

The grunion are running, the grunion are running!

Fair Game Tom NewThe grunion are running this weekend. They come ashore in the surf for “three to four consecutive nights, beginning on the nights of the full moons and new moons,” according to California Beaches. “Spawning occurs after high tides and continues for several hours. Peak spawning is from late March to early June.”

Okay, so here’s what I know, you take a bucket and, of course, a fishing license if you’re 16 or older, and you catch the little suckers with your bare hands.

Then what, you ask?

You cook and eat them. Online you can find recipes to make “grunion” tacos or grilled grunion. Who knew?

I think I’m more of a spectator.

Happy fishing.

Best times are tonight from 11:20 p.m. to 1:20 a.m.; tomorrow (Saturday), midnight to 2 a.m.; and Sunday, 12:40 to 2:40 a.m.

CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) is hosting its bi-annual “Drill the Skills” event tomorrow, March 23, from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. at the Newport Beach Fire Station on Acacia. It’s open to all CERT volunteers who have the opportunity to practice their skills or just volunteer to help.

Then, next Thursday, March 28, at 6 p.m., CERT presents their Earthquake and Tsunami Awareness Workshop in the Civic Center Community Room

The event is held in conjunction with Tsunami Awareness Week

It’s open to all Orange County residents and features guest presenters from the state.

You don’t have to register to attend.

I asked our Fire Chief Chip Duncan about what the program means to the community: “CERT is important to develop in our community, because it enables our neighborhoods to stand alone during a disaster. Our residents need to be able to be self-sufficient for at least 72 hours after a major disaster. Neighborhoods should be able to manage minor incidents so fire and PD can respond to larger incidents. This boils down to neighbors helping neighbors. Essentially our CERT team members are our force multipliers.”

The Chief reminded me that under Matt Brisbois’ leadership, our CERT program “is second to none.”

CERT has more coming in May. You can check it all out here.

When we talk about local news, what’s more local to Newport Beach than USC? If you don’t believe me, drive the streets of Balboa Island during football season and check out all of the banners hanging to support the Trojans.

That being said, Carol Folt, the former chancellor of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, has become the 12th president in the school’s history and the first woman.

She begins July 1.

USC, of course, has had a couple of tough years with the school dean drug issue, the misconduct of the school’s longtime gynecologist and, most recently, the ongoing school admissions scandal.

Add to that that their football team has stunk it up recently and she has a lot of work ahead of her.

Segerstrom Center for the Arts has dropped its appeal fighting the approval of the proposed new Orange County Museum of Art in Costa Mesa.

OCMA is in the midst of moving from their Newport Beach facility and now in temporary South Coast Plaza Village digs, to their eventual final home. 

Back in January, Segerstrom Center President Terrence Dwyer appealed the Costa Mesa Planning Commission’s approval of the plan for a nearly 54,000-square- foot museum.

He resigned a month later.

A coincidence? I think not. Dwyer was definitely swimming upstream against that decision.

His statement upon exiting was that it was “the right time to leave professionally.”

OCMA is scheduled to open sometime in 2021.

It was time for readers to guess where you can tell the time by the sun...with this contemporary sundial on the top of a tower. Stu thought this was an easy one, but received only one correct answer.

Congratulations to Joe Stapleton...who we just can’t seem to stump! He knew this sundial was located on top of the tower that can be found at The Bluffs Shopping Center at Bison and MacArthur.

If you have a unique spot or icon around town that you think Stu News Newport readers would enjoy finding out about, please shoot it, share it and give us the location, so we can challenge them! Happy Hunting.

Take Five: Meet Eric Chenowith...former pro basketball player now insures them

By AMY SENK

When you see Eric Chenowith around Corona del Mar, where he resides, you know immediately that he played basketball: He’s a 7’1” man who often wears Kansas Jayhawk gear, so it would be kind of hard to miss. Chenowith played at Villa Park High School, became an All American team member, then played for the University of Kansas and was drafted by the New York Knicks in the second round in 2001. After retiring from ball, Chenowith went into the insurance business, and in 2018 founded Leverage Disability and Life Insurance Services. I caught up with him to talk business and hoops with March Madness beginning this week.

Q: Your business offers insurance policies to athletes that would protect their financial future in case of injury. Can you describe how you find a typical client and what goes into creating a policy for them?

A: The policies also protect their future earnings from illness as well, and we’ve seen several claims within the market for illness the past few years. I find clients by paying attention to professional draft boards and free agency periods. College athletes need coverage a year out from their perspective draft, and professional athletes need coverage one to two years away from their first or next free agency period. Once I build a database of potential clients, I reach out to their college coach or university compliance office. For professionals, I call their agent or financial adviser. Their future projected market value determines the limits and types of coverage they qualify for.

Q: Is your focus on basketball players, or do you insure men and women athletes in all sports?

A: My focus is on all four major sports at the college and professional level. I also insure women athletes, and clients have ranged from the WNBA to Women’s World Cup Soccer participants. The LPGA and WTA are new markets I recently just tapped into as well. I have relationships with about 50 Power Five institutions and a network of financial advisers, so there is never a lack for variety of risks.

Q: What is a typical day at the office like for you?

A: First thing I do is to get through emails that have come in from underwriters at Lloyd’s of London since they are eight hours ahead of us. I then go through bind orders and quote requests from the east coast to the west coast in that order, since they typically start coming in around 6 a.m. By 8 a.m., I’m caught up with them and can then prepare for orders coming in from the western United States. Once orders are satisfied, I go back to research and prospecting the next potential clients. My business is sort of an annuity in that there is a draft and free agency period for all major sports providing numerous opportunities every year on end.

Q: You played basketball at the college and professional level – do you have a favorite game memory that you can tell us about?

A: My favorite college memory had to be playing in Allen Fieldhouse for four years. KU has the best fans in the world, and AFH is the best sports venue in the world, so the combination is unbeatable. My favorite professional experience had to be participating in training camp with the Lakers in 2003. The roster included Shaq O’Neal, Kobe Bryant, Karl Malone, Gary Payton, Luke Walton and was coached by Phil Jackson. Every day was surreal and an endless learning experience.

Q: What advice do you have for young athletes hoping to play at a Division One or professional level?

A: The best advice I can give to young athletes is to take every day as an opportunity to get better because you will never get this time back. Once you let up or stop working hard, your competition slowly starts to pass you by, so never let up until your goals are attained. Once they are attained – set new ones. Keep pushing until you can’t push anymore. The mental toughness you develop in sports will carry on to your professional life, which you will have to lean on because the real world is inevitable and never stops once you enter it.

You Must Remember This: Comics

By NANCY GARDNER

There is a lot of coverage about newspapers and their struggle to survive in a digital age. I put it down to the funny papers. When I was young, my family took two papers, the Los Angeles Times in the morning and the Santa Ana Register in the evening. I was an avid reader of both. I will not pretend that I read the news or the op-ed pages, but I was a close reader of two sections – the racing results and the comics.    As for the racing results, being horse crazy, I was entranced with race horses. Every morning, I would look in the Times for the day’s starters and then go to work making my picks. I noted them down, and the next day I would check my results. I am proud to say that I made more than I lost. In fact, I was good enough that a few of my parents’ friends would call me for tips if they were going to the races.

As for the comics, those were the days of the funny papers, culminating in the joyful abundance of the Sunday edition, when they not only were in color, but they had their own full section, not the meager four pages of today’s Sunday paper. I’d get my toast, stretch out on the living room carpet and read every one, even “Mary Worth,” which followed the travails of an elderly woman. There were the standards – “Lil Abner,” “Little Orphan Annie,” “Dick Tracy,” but there was also “Dondi,” which was about a Korean War orphan; “Red Ryder,” which was usually accompanied by an ad for Daisy air rifles, which into adulthood I thought shot air, to what purpose I didn’t know. There was “Alley Oop,” who time traveled from the caveman era into the future; “Joe Palooka,” the boxer with his manager Knobby Walsh; “Gordo,” about a Latino; and, of course, the glamorous “Brenda Starr.”

You Must Remember This 3.22.19

The impact of some of the strips was amazing. When Al Capp introduced the “No-goodnik,” that became a catch phrase, and we added “nik” to all sorts of things. When “Peanuts” came along, we were all suddenly exclaiming, “Good grief!” Even years later, this was true. I was at UCLA taking a paralegal course. There were probably 15 of us, all women, between the ages of 25 and 40. I had brought the comics section and started to read in the minutes before class started. “Oh my,” I said inadvertently. “He’s gay.”

Fourteen heads turned around. “Andy is gay?” Everyone was a “Doonesbury” reader and knew instantly what I was referring to. Joanie Caucus and Andy Lippincott seemed to be an item, but then he told her he was gay. I remember her response was something like, “Well, I’m very happy, too.” And then she caught on, but the fact that the few words I blurted out could be so quickly understood – that’s a pretty effective medium. Andy eventually succumbed to AIDS, and I think that Gary Trudeau put a different face on the disease with Andy who was such a nice, gentle man.

There were some grim years when we lived in New Jersey, although not because of  New Jersey itself. Chatham, where we were, was a beautiful, green hamlet, a lovely place to live. The problem was the New York Times didn’t have a funny page, let alone a section. It was a great relief to get back here and have a good comics section again –among other things.

The comic pages have steadily dwindled, and I can’t help but wonder if that hasn’t contributed to the overall decline in newspapers. You aren’t going to attract young readers by the depth of your op-ed page, but you might rope them in with your funny pages. Throw in a Daisy air rifle, and you’re set.

NHHS campus group partners with Clothes for a Cause to benefit The Teen Project

A campus group at Newport Harbor High School (NHHS) is rallying to benefit The Teen Project by hosting a clothing and textile drive.

We all have unwanted textiles that are out of fashion, not needed, or no longer fit. Instead of discarding surplus clothing and household linens, give them a second life through Clothes for a Cause, allowing these items to be re-worn, recycled, or repurposed.

Accepted items include: clothing new and gently used; shoes, pairs only; towels; stuffed animals; hats; drapes; purses and belts. All items must be dry and clean. They can’t take glass, breakables, electronics, bedding, pet beds, bed pillows, carpeting, uniforms, hotel linens, fabric scrapsand& samples, or items previously for sale at a thrift store.

According to Rachel Lemmon, president of the NHHS group, “The Teen Project helps support teenagers who have aged out of the foster care system and are basically left on the streets.

“We have partnered with Clothes for a Cause and are the first to have a club on campus that benefits The Teen Project,” Lemmon shared, who, along with Gabby Brutman, Jordan Williams and Wynn Dietzler, started the club.

Here’s How it Works: NHHS teens collect the clothes, Clothing for a Cause weighs them and gives the group a certain dollar amount for each pound of clothing collected. The more bags collected, the better. The monies raised go to directly support The Teen Project.

The clothing drive is continuing through Sunday, March 31 at 12 p.m. Just leave your bags of clothing and household linens outside your front door to be picked up and marked for Clothes for a Cause, making sure they are visible from the street.

Inside Edge presents author Edie Littlefield Sundby

On Wednesday, March 27, the Inside Edge is presenting a program featuring Edie Littlefield Sundby, author of The Mission Walker.

After losing her right lung to cancer, Sundby became the first person in history to walk the El Camino Real de las Californias, from Loreto, Mexico to Sonoma, Calif. The old Spanish mission trail is unmapped and untrodden and so brutal that no one had ever attempted the entire 1,600-mile walk through the mountain wilderness of Baja Mexico and the Sonoran Desert to Northern California.

Inside Edge presents

Author Edie Littlefield Sundby is the Inside Edge featured speaker

Sundby experienced desert heat and cold, walls of cactus, sleeplessness, hunger, both physical and spiritual exhaustion, the dangers of wild creatures and encounters with drug smugglers – and weeks with no water other than what a pack mule could carry.

The Mission Walker is her firsthand account of the experience and struggles she endured, and the inspiration she discovered. It is both an adventure story and a reflection on the universal experience of confronting our own mortality. It’s a story of what we can do when faced with the potential end of our life. What do we do with our time left on earth? And how much do we still really, truly want to live? The Mission Walker is a 2018 Audie Award Finalist for “Best Inspirational Book.” Sundby’s essays have been featured in the New York Times and Wall Street Journal.

The program takes place at The Pacific Club. Doors open, registration and buffet line starts at 6:45 a.m.; the meeting starts promptly at 7 a.m. RSVPs are requested to plan for the buffet breakfast. Seating is limited. Cost: First time Inside Edge guests, $35; returning guests, $45. Free and validated parking. Register online at www.insideedge.org

The Pacific Club is located at 4110 MacArthur Blvd., Newport Beach.

Arbor Real Estate House Party to benefit Clean Water for Kids initiative

Arbor Real Estate and the Rob Machado Foundation are teaming up again to raise money for the Clean Water for Kids initiative. The annual Arbor House Party event will be held at Arbor Real Estate on Saturday, March 30 from 6 - 9 p.m., and the proceeds will go toward installing FloWater drinking stations in schools throughout the Newport-Mesa Unified School District. The purpose of the stations is to eliminate single-use water bottles – which pollute our watersheds and oceans – and to give students access to clean, tasty water. The Clean Water for Kids initiative has already funded and installed stations at Newport Elementary School and Ensign Intermediate, both in Newport Beach, and Davis Magnet School in Costa Mesa. A new station is scheduled to go into Newport Harbor High School later this month.

Each student in the selected school is provided with a water bottle through the Clean Water for Kids initiative, which will foster pride in and a commitment to their beach community and environment as they refill their bottles.

“We are proud of our partnership with The Rob Machado Foundation to help educate local kids about the negative impact single-use plastic water bottles have on our environment and give them an environmentally friendly choice when they are at school,” said Kristin Barry, managing broker at Arbor Real Estate.

The Rob Machado Foundation’s (RMF) primary mission is to educate and empower young people to make sustainable choices. Rob Machado is one of the world’s most recognizable surfers as well as a committed environmentalist. In 2004, he established RMF to support environmental programs for youth.

(L-R) Professional surfer Rob Machado receives a check from Nicole Dishon, Lieveke Engleking and Kristin Barry of Arbor Real Estate. The proceeds are from the 2018 Arbor House Party and will go toward installing new FloWater stations in Newport Beach and Costa Mesa schools.

Arbor Real Estate partnered with RMF four years ago to help it further its goal of installing clean water stations in the local community. “We realized our goals as a brokerage were aligned with Rob’s and it was a natural step for us to partner with him and his foundation,” said Chris Brigandi, Arbor’s founder.
