Jennifer Piette’s 11-year-old daughter hunted around the kitchen in search of an after-school snack. There wasn’t a potato chip or cookie to be found. 

“She said, ‘I want chicken fingers,’” Piette recalled, laughing.

So Piette went to her refrigerator and took out a chicken breast from a local farmer in Santa Ynez. Then she walked over to her pantry and pulled out a bag of Sonora Wheat flour grown in Hollister, California, a dozen eggs from Dare 2 Dream Farms in Lompoc, California and a crusted loaf of artisan bread.

Steve Soboroff might consider himself lucky to remember the day he began to think about the ways he could improve a community.

When his eldest son was 3 years old, Soboroff took him to a park in the Pacific Palisades. Soboroff was playing with his son on the playground equipment, where he eventually hit his head hard enough that he began to bleed.

A slightly dazed Soboroff walked to the park’s office, where he asked for a Band-Aid.

The house resonated with classical chamber music including opera, Irish folk, and a live accompaniment to a Mary Pickford silent movie called “Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm.”

It was set in a unique environment of architecture and acoustics with a broad international audience, including the architect and designer Eric Wright, who summed up the night as “marvelous.”

For Max Watkin, visualizing goals is the first step to accomplishing them. 

On the small scale, the former Malibu High School boys soccer goalkeeper said imagining success means visualizing himself blocking an incoming kick; on a larger scale, it means keeping himself focused on his goals, like playing Division 1 college or perhaps even professional soccer.

So far, the first goal is accomplished: Watkin will play as a Division 1 goalkeeper for San Diego State University this fall, where he’ll study broadcast communications.

The Zuma Project took place on the beach in front of Malibu High School every Thursday. Longtime teacher Robert Perry taught us students how to conduct a long-term science project in our own environment. I learned how to record scientific data, make graphs, and discuss changes in data over a long period of time. Also, several other students and I would pull a fine mesh net on a surfboard to gather plankton for Perry’s biology class and get the temperature of the bottom of the ocean.
