"This is the first time we have had a position dedicated to coordinating and promoting the arts," King said. "It's a key role and we're sure Kelly will help expand the arts profile in Coronado."
Janice Anderson, in her Wax Pot studio
The Wax Pot has new digs! And like a new pot helps a plant grow, Janice Anderson is sure her small business will thrive with “repotting,” too!
“I’m back,” says Janice with tongue in cheek. She actually never left Coronado having started The Wax Pot 20 years ago. For the last three years, she served her clientele once a week out of shared space.
Now she has her own permanent space again at Spa La Mer in the El Cordova Courtyard, 1339 Orange Avenue, #6, and expanded hours.
Trained at the International Dermal Institute in Los Angeles, Janice first worked at Aida Grey Salon in Orange County as an esthetician. Over the years, she has seen the focus of skin care change. Though she still does plenty of waxing, many of her clients are regulars for her anti-aging treatments. “There’s a new emphasis on avoiding surgery, so clients come regularly for skin resurfacing and tightening treatments,” says Janice. And those who do have cosmetic surgery see her to maintain their results. "The minute they're through (with surgery) the clock starts again." Her anti-aging treatments consist of skin resurfacing with micro-dermabrasion, via an imported Italian machine and Matiolli supplies; followed by a six-layer vitamin C based peel; finished with an ice plunge. "The mirco-dermabrasion resurfaces and the peel tightens and smooths," Janice says, "It's an excellent service." She treats the neck and décolletage areas as well. "By speeding the skin cell turnover," she says. "We keep a youthful and glowing complexion."
The daughter of a Hollywood film and television producer, Janice began her career in makeup. But as she progressed in that field, she realized that without a solid foundation, much like a house, there was only so much make-up could do. By improving the facial skin’s health and appearance, the effect of the make-up was far superior. In fact, many of her clients eschew a daily make-up routine, their skin texture having improved dramatically with treatments.
To extend the treatment, Janice carries a full line of cosmecuetical products by Agera which use the latest ingredients and technology. She also teaches her clients a skin care regimen for the home. "It's important to use resurfacers at night, that's when skin regenerates," she says.
Cleansing is an important element, Janice says. She advises her clients to use a clean white face cloth when washing morning and evening. “An exfoliant isn’t needed,” she says. “The facecloth provides just enough.” She also is not a fan of makeup brushes. “Unless you wash them daily,” she says, “you’re just spreading bacteria around.” Instead she recommends using cotton balls for makeup application.
Testimony that her treatments work, is obvious as she has maintained a steady client base over the years. "Some have been with me since the Hotel Del." She worked at the hotel's spa for five years. One client, a part time resident from St. Louis, Mo., makes her treatment appointment at The Wax Pot before she buys her plane tickets. Another who recently began extending the treatment to her decolletage told Janice her husband, "said he'd never seen her chest looking so beautiful!" Most telling though is a regular monthly client who is an identical twin. "She showed me a recent picture with her sister," says Janice, "and she looked at least 15 years younger!" Janice is a walking advert for her treatments as well. "Good skin care can arrest and even reverse the aging process," she says.
In addition to anti-aging, Janice still keeps her wax pot on at all times. She's always ready to do brows and other areas as well.
The Wax Pot treatments and waxing are available by appointment. To contact Janice, call 619-886-3658.
Boathouse Is Now “1887 On The Bay”
The rainbow leads to the pot of gold, and everyone knows that. But the new dining experience, 1887 on the Bay, is where you'll also find the best steak and seafood in San Diego County. Photo by Joe Ditler.
Lights, camera, action! One of the oldest restaurants in Coronado has just become the newest. The Boathouse 1887, formerly the Coronado Chart House, is taking fine dining to the highest level of culinary proficiency as “1887 on the Bay.”
On June 14, the restaurant officially opened, introducing guests to 1887 on the Bay’s world famous chef, new management, a new menu and hours, and a new name; and all of this framed in a history that is truly unique.
Opening night at 1887 on the Bay brought a few hundred old and new friends out to support Coronado's newest restaurant. Here, co-owner Marty Jensen, poses with former Chart House waitresses he has worked with over the years, from left, Jeannie Campanella, Tricia Falletta, Jody Esquer and Janet Ryan-Falletta.

Marty Jensen and partner Michael Baker have brought in one of the best chefs in the country, Jess LeDesma. The new chef hails from San Francisco and Hawaii, and is founder of the KOA Restaurant Group. LeDesma has studied under celebrity chefs at American venues such as the Waldorf Astoria in New York, the Fairmont Hotels in California, as well as fine dining venues throughout Asia. He opened the Ritz Carlton in Half Moon Bay and the Forbes Mill Steakhouse in Los Gatos before founding KOA.
To assist LeDesma, Roger Boomer has taken over management of the restaurant. Boomer’s credits include 35 years of managing fine dining restaurants that include 20 years with the Chart House chain (eight of those at Coronado Peohe’s) and Candela’s. His emphasis will be focused on creating the ultimate service experience to go with the ultimate food experience.
The upstairs part of the restaurant, the “Crew's Lounge,” continues to enjoy weekly live music, an extended happy hour, and an exotic, smaller version of the restaurant’s menu.

Meanwhile, downstairs in the historic building, diners experience an unrivalled food adventure. “Our food can be described as global waterfront cuisine,” said LeDesma. “Our guests are going to feel like they’ve just eaten at a big city restaurant without the giant price tag. I’ve worked hard to perfect a menu that offers a wide selection of the freshest and best-prepared items. ‘Simple but elegant,’ has been my key to success in this industry,” he said, “and that’s what you’ll find here.
“To make this the institution I believe it can be, it needed to have some things that were unquestionably the best of the best,” said LeDesma. “I’m proud of our entire menu, but we have an exclusive for our meat. Our steaks are plant-specific, so we know that all our meat selections have been well groomed and we’ll get them from the same place every time – Snake River Farms Family, in Boise, Idaho.
"Only three chefs in the world
can access this pure source of beef.
They are the French Laundry's
Thomas Keller, the great Wolfgang Puck,
and 1887 on the Bay's Jess LeDesma"
In fact, Chef LeDesma is one of only three chefs allowed access to this specially farmed strain of beef. The other two chefs are the legendary Wolfgang Puck, and Thomas Keller of the French Laundry.
The new menu features a variety of steak and seafood entrees. Handmade soups adorn the starter menu along with some very attractive salads and seafood items that include fresh oysters from local farms. Main course meals range from $19-35. LeDesma offers guests the finest and freshest fish from Hawaii, Japan, and the East Coast.
LeDesma has designed an 1887 Private Locker that includes rare culinary treats not appearing on the menu. The private locker includes unique beef suggestions for his guests who want that “butter knife beef experience,” as he puts it.
Among the guests at opening night at 1887 on the Bay were Pam and Joe Balla. Joe worked at the restaurant when it was a Chart House, many years ago. Today he is a giant in the commercial real estate industry and a major supporter of the arts. Photo courtesy Bill Sandke Photography.
“I can do an 18-course meal for private gatherings with 48-hour notice,” said LeDesma. “We call it in Japanese, Omakase, where the customer dines at the Chef’s Captain’s Table and receive the best the chef has to offer that evening. In addition, we hope to make the rarely visited Boathouse cupola, the very top of the 126-year-old building, available for private parties of four.
“In celebration of the July Fourth fireworks show in Glorietta Bay,” said LeDesma, “we’re offering a rare evening for six, upstairs in the crows’ nest, that will include the most amazing food and wine pairings available from the private locker served at a private table in the Crew’s Lounge, and the best and loftiest seat in the house for the fireworks display. We are auctioning off this evening with bids starting at $5,000, with a portion of the proceeds going to the Coronado Schools Foundation. It won’t be anything less than the greatest evening imaginable.”
The history of the building is staggering. It was constructed in 1887 as a prototype for the Hotel del Coronado, a template allowing construction teams to hone their skills for an undertaking just across the street that would be built within a year. It has become one of the few icons of Coronado, alongside the Hotel del Coronado and the Coronado Bridge.
Inside both the entrances to 1887 on the Bay are newly created, articulately and visually designed historical timelines to give visitors a look at the history of this unique and treasured structure that was the first home of Scripps Institute of Oceanography, the Coronado Yacht Club, and the San Diego Yacht Club.
Guests spanned the generations at 1887 on the Bay's opening night. Here, Haley MacKenzie (left) and Chelsea Ditler pause for a photograph. Haley's grandmother is the late Bunny MacKenzie, Coronado's most legendary historian. Photo courtesy Bill Sandke Photography.
Steaks on the menu rely on a special, new grill used only by major league restaurants such as Morton’s and Ruth’s Chris. Infrared heat from the Montague Steakhouse Broiler is extremely hot, allowing LeDesma to sear the meat and lock in the juices in classic French style.
“We’ve taken a big leap,” said owner Marty Jensen, “and are aiming at making this restaurant the best steak and seafood restaurant you can go to anywhere in San Diego. We’re looking to appeal to a greater audience with the sheer quality of our food, service, and ambience.”
The Crew’s Lounge is open every day at 3 p.m., serving lite fare and full bar. Large screen TVs have been added to the Lounge and music will continue to be available on Thursday nights. At 5 p.m. the full menu will be available. Dinner is served daily, from 5-11 p.m.
If opening night is any indication, 1887 on the Bay is a grand slam home run. The new restaurant serves the finest steaks and seafood found anywhere in San Diego County. Seen here are, from left, Mike Herlihy, Peter Fait and John Gillem. Photo courtesy Bill Sandke Photography.

CORONADO – Weekend news anchor, Brandi Williams, of KUSI TV, will ride in Coronado’s July Fourth Parade. She will be a guest of the Coronado Brewing Company, and ride in their iconic Model T beer truck, “Olive Oyl,” alongside local historian and publicist, Joe Ditler.
Ratings have soared for the reporter/anchor since coming to San Diego last year. A veteran of national TV, Brandi Williams hosted several coast-to-coast programs before covering the news. Among them were Fox TV’s popular New Year’s Eve Party, with Ryan Seacrest; Mark Burnett’s realty TV show, “Toughest Cowboy;” and the “World’s Biggest Birthday Party,” with Donny Osmond.
During live broadcasts from the Hotel del Coronado last December, Williams took time to promote the Holiday Parade and the Coronado Chamber of Commerce, as well as the Coronado Brewing Company and their historic Model T, "Olive Oyl". She will be riding in the 1924 truck this July 4th.
She also covered the Hollywood Red Carpet for three years as Entertainment Editor for TV Guide, and has had her own show on the Travel Channel. Her image has appeared in numerous magazines and Internet publications, including Maxim.

Currently Brandi works the KUSI morning slot Wednesdays through Fridays as a news/feature reporter, and as the weekend anchor.
“I love Coronado,” said the popular reporter. “I come to the island at every opportunity. When I’m not shopping or eating at the great restaurants here, I’m riding my bike or skateboarding. It’s such a beautiful place, and it’s where I bring my family and friends whenever they are in town.”
In December she rode with the Coronado Brewing Company team in the Holiday Parade. “I have never had so much fun,” she said of her first Coronado parade. “I brought tons of candy canes to hand out to the kids, and all along the parade route we were mobbed by children. I’m looking forward to the July Fourth Parade.”
This year’s running of Coronado’s July Fourth Parade falls on Thursday. The theme is “America the Beautiful.” The parade begins at 10 a.m. at First Street and Orange Avenue, and proceeds south to Churchill Place. It lasts about two hours.
The Coronado Brewing Company is located at 170 Orange Avenue. For more information on the Coronado Brewing Company visit their website at

CORONADO - Cassandra De Laurentis has returned to Coronado to join the team at Lee Mather Co., Realtors. The former Coronado businesswoman has been a successful Realtor in the Lake Tahoe area for the past 15 years where she specialized in new and land home site sales, residential sales and vacation ownership sales.
Cassandra is no stranger to Coronado. Her husband of 26 years, George, is from an old Coronado family and he share’s her passion for real estate. One of her two grown children is a Coronado Native.
Cassandra holds Real Estate licenses in both California and Nevada. She comes to the Lee Mather Company from Century 21 Tahoe Paradise where she and her husband have worked for the past nine years. She first became licensed in California in 1998 and then in Nevada in 2000.
Her efforts in putting the clients’ needs first earned her numerous customer service awards from Century 21. She takes pride in building relationships with her clients that will create happy owners and repeat business. Whether it’s a partial ownership, a second home, income property or a full-time residence, she’s committed to the details involved in the process and finding the best match for her clients.
“My husband has so many wonderful Coronado stories,” said Cassandra. “When we walk down the street, he amazes me at his knowledge of this small town history of Coronado and how it was to grow up here. I think it’s just wonderful to have that perspective of Coronado. We are so happy to be back on the island, and Lee Mather Co., Realtors feels so much a part of this town. It’s a pleasure to work with Debbie Riddle and Mike Herlihy, who have managed to be successful in their business while protecting that small town feel.”

CORONADO – Sebastian Sauer has become a shooting star as German brewers go. He started out with a genuine fascination with beer, and was obsessed with collecting beer coasters as a child. In his teen years he and his friends sought out exotic beers in the border triangle of Germany, Netherlands and Belgium.
Today, at age 26, he has built an international reputation as a successful brewer, and has his own brewery, restaurant and distribution company in Cologne, Germany.
Sauer is making a tour of American breweries this month and brewed his first American beer with brewer Ryan Brooks of the Coronado Brewing Company on Wednesday.
The two brewers were carrying on an email exchange when it just made more sense for Sauer to hop on a plane and come to Coronado. Together they created a traditional Hefeweizen with a twist that blends the best of Germany and the best that San Diego brewing has to offer.
“Sebastian was making beer in Germany with a little American influence,” said Brooks, “and we were making American beers with a little German influence. So it was only natural that we get together and see what we could come up with.”
The young German brewer has his own opinions about beer and partnering with others. “Often collaborations don’t work,” he said. “When I look at typical collaborations, I see a finished product that either of the collaborators could have created on his own. What we’re doing is using big American hops mixed with traditional German beer. This will be something that is indeed unique to both of our markets.”
In preparation for Sauer’s visit, the CBC brewers sourced out yeast from the oldest brewery in the world, Weihenstephaner, located near Munich.
The new brew, to be called Republic of CaliVaria (a twist on California and Bavaria), will be available in two weeks at the Coronado Brewing Company’s two locations, and in a limited amount at a few of the better beer bars throughout San Diego.
“I expect it to be quite a refreshing beer,” said Brooks. “It will have a nice balance of clove spiciness and banana esters, and a hint of bubblegum.”
The 6’4” Sauer smiled at his American counterpart’s description. “Yes, rosy, that’s how I would describe it, with a little pine and a little tropical mixed in.”
Even at age 17, Sebastian and his friends had created a game out of tasting local beers, describing the experience, and trying to figure out what the ingredients were.
“We would ask, ‘Where is the sweetness coming from,’” said Sauer. “At some point you stop finding new beers in your region, and begin to look elsewhere. You work, you save your money, and you plan a trip to discover new beer tastes. We began to carry large bags with us that we would load up with beers to bring back to Germany to try and analyze later.”
Sauer and his brewers are reviving and modernizing Germany’s historical beer styles, creating beers that have their roots in German history and lore, but are made today with what he calls an improvement on traditional German standards.
"There's a lot of dying out of the breweries in Germany,” Sauer recently told a brew magazine. “Germany used to have a lot of breweries, and nowadays they all produce less than they did years ago. But they don't understand why they're losing so much. They see themselves as the victims."
Sauer’s solution: “I don’t want to reinvent the wheel, but I want to reintroduce some of these old flavors to the new generation of beer drinkers. I do a lot of modern interpretations of the older beers. I love old style sour ales.” And so, it seems, do his customers.”
The German brewer’s best selling beer is Abraxxxas, a 6% sour beer. Inspired by the eastern German tart wheat beer once known as “Lichtenhainer.” Abraxxxas is sour and complex, with a balancing, smoky maltiness. “I wanted to bring back that beer, but not exactly as it was,” said the brewer who is equal parts entrepreneur and historian.
Ryan Brooks, left, and Sebastian Sauer spent the day creating a new/old brew, but the experience gave Sauer a chance to try numerous beers during his stay. The German brewer is only 26, but has revived the German brewing industry with his modern twists on old favorites. Photo by Joe Ditler.
“His beer is pretty unique,” said CBC’s Brooks. “When I go to Germany I see lots of big brewers, but this is the youngest guy I’ve ever seen start and be so successful at a business. They are all young guys. They don’t care about the old methods. They’re excited about change and making new beers that don’t have to follow a certain path. It must be working, because when I was in Philadelphia last week, they had the largest display table filled with his beer.”
Sauer’s brew pub is called Braustelle. Together with his African chef they have had great success with pairings and building a large clientele with exotic beer and food. At his pub he produces approximately 30 barrels a year, about the size of the Coronado Brewing Company’s Coronado Brew Pub. Aside from Abraxxxas, his most popular beers are Hoppeditz, Ottekolong Kölsch, and Pimock Hefeweizen.
Surprisingly, the thing Sauer most looked forward to seeing this trip were the places in California where Rock ‘n’ Roll was so fluent in the late 1960s. He waxed eloquently on the harmonies of the Beach Boys, the brilliance of Brian Wilson, the magic of the Mamas and the Papas, and the subtleties of Eric Burdon and the Animals. He likes Cream, Credence Clearwater Revival, and even the acoustical version of “Hotel California.” Pretty heady stuff for a 26-year-old European.
“I wanted my whole life to see these surfing cities the Beach Boys sang about,” he said, “and I played their music all the way down the coast from Los Angeles last night.”

Loaded with 20 years of experience in the Real Estate and mortgage industries, Jeff Newman brings a variety of skills to the table as the newest member of Lee Mather Co., Realtors.
Newman had his own company in Newport Beach for 20 years. He’s experienced in negotiating complex property transactions and trusts, and will be working to build his network in Coronado and San Diego while continuing to introduce his many friends and former clients to the magic of Coronado.
“Networking is the key in this business,” said Newman. “I’ve been involved in hundreds of Real Estate transactions. More than 90% of my business comes from referrals. The relationship with strangers is, at first, a transaction. When you either have an established relationship, or a friendly referral, it becomes much deeper and more rewarding on many levels for everyone involved, and that’s been a trademark of my work ethic for years.”
In his travels, Newman had been a friend with the Lee Mather family for nearly 30 years. Now, with the market beginning to show signs of renewed life, Newman has been brought in to add his special networking abilities to the team at LMCo.
“This being our 60th year in Business, we continue to be on the lookout for people who will carry our company forward, while continuing to reflect our principles,” said Mike Herlihy, partner at Lee Mather Co., Realtors. “Newman personifies this with his energy, expertise and enthusiasm.” Co-owner Debbie Riddle concurred: “He's a leader. Look for good things from Jeff.”
Married with two teenage children, Newman received a B.A. in speech communication at Cal State Long Beach. He spent a year as a law student at Southwestern University School of Law before devoting his career to Real Estate and the mortgage industry.
“I had aspirations of being a politician as a young man,” said Newman. “I love persuasion and negotiation, and have a real attraction to history and government. But, as a newlywed at the time, the commitment required to continue as a law student wasn’t realistic for me.” His short time studying law, however, has helped him in the resolution of many complicated Real Estate transactions over the years.
Newman plays basketball three times a week in pick-up games, and loves to travel in search of surf. He has surfed numerous exotic breaks over the years - places such as Fiji, Costa Rica, Mazatlan, and up and down the California coast.
“Coronado is such a beautiful town,” said the veteran Realtor. “I look forward to building a new network of friends and associates here, and to being a major contributor to the good work being done at Lee Mather Co., Realtors.
Have you ever been in the middle of a project when your printer runs out of paper? How about trying to meet a deadline when your printer refuses to participate unless you add a new ink cartridge? Ever need just one more sheet of "that color" paper to help your child finish a school assignment? Do you really have the time to find your keys, drive over the bridge and get back in time to get it done?
Did you know that probably everything you need may be found in Coronado at Business Products Express, located at 1019 C Avenue (right behind McP's)? They carry office products, janitorial supplies and furniture.
I dropped in at Business Products Express this week to pick up some printer paper. You could buy it by the ream or by the case. I was astonished at the amount of goods they kept in stock. I took a few pictures so you could see their huge inventory.
I couldn't take photos of it all but you get the idea. If they don't have it in stock, they have catalogs to order from. They have stores all over the United States so if your daughter needs a desk or new chair in her college dorm room, it can be delivered to her with no shipping cost!
Being in Coronado, you'd think that they'd be pricey . . . but they're not! They proudly boast that they will meet or beat any price you could find at Office Depot or Staples. They even post the comparisons on their website. For example, Business Products Express has the best price for the ink I use in my printer, almost half the price I would pay at Office Max.

A delivery service is offered for local businesses and several that you know are taking advantage of it. Why not? Think it can't get any better? It does . . . every delivery is accompanied by a chocolate chip/peanut butter cookie! Need I say more?
Friends and family of Lee Mather gather for his 95th birthday. Many of the Realtors in Coronado today got their start with Lee. Numerous of those were also in attendance. Photos courtesy of Brent Haywood Photography.
The patriarch of the Mather clan turned 95 Tuesday, April 9th. A birthday party was held at the offices of Lee Mather Co., Realtors – a business Lee started in 1953 (the business turns 60 on May 1st).
“The office filled with friends, family and well wishers,” said Debbie Riddle, Lee’s daughter, but no one was certain Lee was physically up to making the trip across town from his home.
“We hired a technician to hook Lee up with a computer and Skype,” said Riddle, “and we set up his birthday cake in front of the big screen TV in our offices.”
What happened then was something no one expected. As 30 or so employees and family members paraded past the TV screen and camera, Lee called out their names and shared brief memories. Everyone sang “Happy Birthday.” Suddenly the guest of honor turned to his care provider and said, “I want to go down there and join them.”
A short time later, Lee Mather, one of Coronado’s most beloved and elder businessmen, drove his electric chair into the offices he once led with a strong and loving hand, and the party started all over again. Everyone surrounded him, the birthday cake was re-lit, and once again song filled the air at LMCo.
“He has touched so many lives, in his family and community,” said the Rev. Steve Mather, Lee’s son. “Customers over the years remember him eagerly putting their interests first, and a prospective sale, second. It’s really wonderful to see him here, in his old office, surrounded by friends and family.”
The party, which was planned by LMCo partners Debbie Riddle, Tom Riddle and Mike Herlihy (they purchased the practice in 1998), continued for a couple more hours, and Lee Mather seemed to grow stronger as the day grew long.
Towards the end of the day someone raised a glass and said, “Long life to you Mr. Mather.” To which, he replied, “It’s been too long already,” and then broke out in that infectious Lee Mather smile that has endeared him to so many for nearly a century. Lee Mather continues to enjoy every day to the fullest, and is never far from loving friends and family.
