balks at plans to redistrict

By Patty McCormac

RANCHO SANTA FE — In every organization, there is infrastructure. That’s no different for the Rancho Santa Fe School District. The district’s infrastructure is generally staffed by people who work behind the scenes. Cheryl Wilcox, Suzanne Benjamin and Hank Mendez, members of that infrastructure, were brought to the forefront June 14 after they each announced they would be leaving the district in search of new adventures. “We miss you already,” said Lindy Delaney, district superintendent during the farewell party June 14, where staff and the community could say their goodbyes through hugs and some tears. The three were given a standing ovation, not to mention cards and gifts. Wilcox was the school’s receptionist for 18 years and the first face people saw when they entered the school. “I was the luckiest,” she said. “I got to work with the parents, the kids and the teachers.” She opted for early retirement so she could join her husband, already retired for two years, and do a little traveling.

administrative assistant for 14 years, said that when given the opportunity for early retirement, and after a lot of thought, she decided to go for it. She is now looking forward to spending more time with her family and traveling. Her first trip planned is to Hawaii,

Eighth-graders prepare to embrace change By Patty McCormac

RANCHO SANTA FE — It was a chilly evening for the R. Roger Rowe School’s eighth-grade graduation, but the 89 graduates didn’t seem to mind the chill or the marine layer overhead. Some of the boys and girls shivered, but that was mostly from the excitement as they walked into the Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club two-by-two to the strains of “Pomp and Circumstance,” into an overflow crowd of proud family members and friends. The June 16 graduation started with welcoming remarks from Lindy Delaney, district superintendent, who pointed out to the graduates that their lives were about to change. “This will be the last TURN TO GRADUATION ON A14

RANCHO SANTA FE — After hearing a report on the remapping of assembly and state senate districts, the Rancho Santa Fe Association decided to send a contingent of representatives to speak personally to the redistricting commission when it next meets. “The early indications are that Rancho Santa Fe might be included in state assembly and state senate districts that have much different boundaries than are currently in place,” said Ivan Holler, covenant administrator. “What is proposed is not in the best interest of the association.” In the proposed new maps, Rancho Santa Fe is thrown in with many far flung communities with which it has little in common. The proposed senate district boundaries has Rancho Santa Fe grouped in with Chula Vista and other communities in a long strip that runs all the way to the Mexican border. “I think a better fit would be to the east or north,” Holler said. “I think that would make much more sense than what we see now.” The proposed assembly district includes Del Mar and Solana Beach, Coronado and parts of San Diego. “Being mixed in with a massive population center totally removes our seats from the table,” said Association Director Roxanna Foxx. Association Manager Pete Smith suggested at the association’s June 16 meeting that while the final decisions have not been made, it might be a good idea for the association to provide either written or verbal comments to the commission in order to protect the best interests of the covenant. “It doesn’t seem to be a TURN TO REDISTRICT ON A14

Peruvian cuisine featuring paella was served up by Café Secret. Rusty Surf Shop donated a surfboard as a grand prize for the raffle. In total,more than 30 local businesses donated to the event by providing raffle prizes and silent auction items. They included The Poseidon, Jake’s, The Pacifica, Bully’s, Del Mar Pizza, The Fish Market, En Fuengo, Tio Leo’s, Zel’s, Zinc Café, Pizza Nova, Pizza Port, Belly Up, Del Mar Motel, Hampton Inn, B&L Bike & Sports and Hansen’s Surf Shop.

LEAD STORY

Somehow, upscale restaurateurs believe that diners will soon willingly pay more for a beef dish if it comes with disclosure of the DNA of the actual cow being eaten, according to a May Associated Press report. “People want to know where their food is coming from,” said one excited chef, lauding the knowledge to be gleaned from a calf’s upbringing. (A more practical beef-supply executive added that DNA can help identify the “multiple animals” whose parts were used in hunks of ground beef — a 10-pound package of which may include contributions from “hundreds” of different cows.)

Can’t Possibly Be True

• It was not difficult to find critics when the Orlando-area government job-service engine Workforce Central Florida said it was spending more than $70,000 of federal stimulus money to help the laidoff by handing out 6,000 satiny capes for jobless “superheroes” to “fight” “Dr. Evil Unemployment.” (“Absolutely absurd” was the reaction of a laid-off customer service representative.) Several critics interviewed by the Orlando Sentinel noted that such an awkward program further erodes the unemployed’s fragile self-respect. WCF, though, remained convinced. In the words of a spokeswoman, “Everyone is a superhero in the fight against unemployment.” • Urban Legend Come to Life: Too-good-to-be-true stories have circulated for years about men who accidentally fell, posterior first, onto compressed-air nozzles and self-inflated to resemble “dough boys,” usually with fatal results. However, in May in Opotiki, New Zealand, trucker Steven McCormack found himself in similar circumstances, and had it not been for quick-thinking colleagues who pulled him away, he would have been killed — as the air, puncturing a buttock, had already begun separating tissue from muscle. McCormack was hospitalized in severe pain, but the air gradually seeped from his body (according to a doctor, in the way air “usually” seeps from a body). • Oops! Oswind David was convicted of “firstdegree assault” in a 2006 trial in New York City, but unknown to him, his lawyer and the judge, the charge had already been dismissed by another judge due to prosecutorial error. Nonetheless, David has been in prison since his conviction, serving a 23-year term, and was freed only in May when the error came to light.

Sentimental favorites such as “Unchained Melody” and “I’ve Got You Babe” performed by The Corvettes provided the backdrop for the Del Mar Lifeguard Association’s Dance Party Fundraiser June 25. The dinner was the 31st annual fundraiser for the association. Pat Vergne, director of community services and chief lifeguard for the city of Del Mar, reported that about 200 partygoers contributed $6,500. The funds will be used to support junior lifeguards as well as scholarship programs for seasonal lifeguards and other outreach and education programs. Disabled veterans and disabled

Rancho Santa Fe church earns design award RANCHO SANTA FE — The structural complexity and creativity of exposed steel trusses crisscrossing the sanctuary of a Rancho Santa Fe church earned a People’s Choice award for structural engineers Josephson Werdowatz & Associates, Inc., and project architects domusstudio architecture. The 2011 Excellence in Structural Engineering awards were announced during the Structural Engineers Association of San Diego dinner meeting in Mission Valley on June 21. Following a vote of the membership, the Village Presbyterian Church of Rancho Santa Fe received the People’s Choice award. “We were the smallest building in the running for an award, but what I think members liked best about our project is the creative mix of architecture and structural engi-

neering that is especially visible in the dramatic sanctuary,” said Dan Werdowatz, principal structural engineer. The project next will be submitted for consideration in the 2011 Structural Engineers Association of California awards event. The project was constructed by ROEL Construction Company. Last month the Village Church received a 2011 Lily Award from the Rancho Santa Fe Association. Presented May 12, the Lily Award is intended to highlight work that embodies the high standard of architecture and landscape design envisioned by Rancho Santa Fe’s first architect and Building Commissioner, Lilian Rice. Founded in 1956, and with more than 1,200 members in its congregation today, the Village Community Presbyterian Church is a long-

A special task force comprised of 91 law enforcement teams knocked on more than 1,000 doors of registered sex offenders throughout San Diego County June 22, in an operation that resulted in 14 arrests and launched 61 new investigations. The San Diego Sexual Assault Felony Enforcement (SAFE) Task Force conducted “Operation Watchdog” in a sweeping attempt to locate registered sex offenders and investigate their status, said Task Force Commander David Collazo. Collazo said the task force was successful in contacting more than 800 known offenders. He added that the goal of the sweep was to verify that offenders were complying with registration laws and to identify any illegal activity they might be engaged in. Drug and firearm-sniffing dogs aided in the searches. The sweep resulted in the seizure of such items as pornography, drug paraphernalia, marijuana, smart phones, laptops, children’s clothing, toys and alcohol. Collazo said that investigations have been opened on 61 of the individuals who

Yasmine Zein-Phillipson,a senior at Torrey Pines High School, and member of the Surfrider Foundation, served as chairman of the fledgling Del Mar chapter. “I surf and love the ocean,” she said. “After the Gulf oil spill last year, I don’t want the place that I love to be ruined.” Yasmine explained that the low turnout was due to this being the first year that Del Mar participated. “There is a Hands Across the Sand event in Pacific Beach that’s really big and one in Oceanside,”she said.“Ours will be bigger next year.” Amy McCluer and her daughter Katie traveled from Glendale, Ariz., to participate in the Del Mar event. “The reason they are COME TOGETHER J0-"?0$(-& '$?& (/*1"-(-& K/"$& )'$?-& "$& .1/(0-( drilling off-shore is because '%'"$-(&/55<-)/10&/"6&?1"66"$%&?*1"$%&()0&'$$*'6&L'$?-&B;1/--&()0&9'$?- everything else (oil wells) is gone,” Katie said. 0#0$(D&Photo by Lillian Cox By Lillian Cox

McCluer blames the United States government for bowing to pressure from the automobile industry, and not investing more in alternative sources of clean energy. “Humans are killing our planet,” she said, weeping. “People think it’s not going to affect our generation. I want my daughter to come here

when she’s my age, and be able to have a vacation on a clean beach.” McCluer added that a Hands Across the Sand event was being held simultaneously at Tempe Beach Park in Arizona, overlooking Tempe Town Lake, a dry riverbed converted into a recreational reservoir a few years ago.

En Fuego plays host to fiesta for the horses By Bianca Kaplanek

Fans of race horses, baseball or both gathered June 20 at En Fuego Cantina & Grill to help raise money for After the Finish Line, a nonprofit organization that provides funding assistance to rescue organizations that help thoroughbreds transition into second careers once they can no longer race or breed.

Jones, a racehorse owner and restaurateur, was scheduled to work as a guest bartender, but instead spent the evening signing autographs and chatting with attendees. En Fuego regularly hosts fundraisers, donating a percentage of sales to a different charity each month. After the Finish Line received $1 for every Finish Line margarita sold in June and 10 percent of all restaurant sales the night of the event. After the Finish Line supports rescue organizations throughout the United States, but money raised during the En Fuego event will go to those in California. “We are raising the money locally, so we’re going to keep it local,” said After the Finish Line Founder Dawn Mellen. Without the financial assistance of After the Finish Line, many former racehorses might be sent to slaughter because they are injured, too slow to win or not producing quality foals, she said. “The greatest victory for a thoroughbred is not winning a race, but winning the race to

ODD FILES

CONTINUED FROM A3

David, arguing that only the “first-degree” part had been dismissed. A judge finally freed David on bail while prosecutors ponder reopening the case.) • Parents were puzzled in June after Dry Creek School District in Roseville, Calif., passed out questionnaires asking for biographical details of prospective students, including whether or not the child has been delivered by Csection. Parents told Sacramento station KOVR-TV that school officials were refusing to explain why they wanted to know that.

News That Sounds Like a Joke

(1) Night club singer Simon Ledger was arrested following a performance at the Driftwood Beach Bar on Britain’s Isle of Wight in April after a patron complained to police. Ledger was covering the 1974 hit “Kung Fu Fighting,” and two customers of Chinese descent reported that they felt victims of illegal “racially aggravated harassment.” (2) Leslie Clarke, 29, turned himself in to police in Darwin, Australia, in May

after authorities released surveillance tape of a break-in and vandalism at the Hidden Valley Tavern. Clarke, a large man, confessed to going on a drunken prowl with friends, but said he remembered the break-in only when he saw the video and recognized his distinctive image from the back, including several inches of his butt crack.

Inexplicable

(1) An April Associated Press story, citing federal government sources, reported that 247 people on the terrorist “watch list” were nonetheless legally permitted to purchase guns in 2010 — about the same number who did so legally in 2009. (2) In May, Oklahoma judge Susie Pritchett, receiving guilty pleas from a $31 drug-deal raid in 2010 that netted a mother and her two grown children, sentenced the mother and son to probation, but the 31-year-old daughter to 12 years in prison (just because the daughter showed “no ... remorse”).

Unclear on the Concept

In May, a federal appeals court reinstated the Americans with Disabilities Act lawsuit filed in 2007 by

Darrell Miller after he was fired as a bridge maintenance worker by the Illinois Department of Transportation. Miller had been medically diagnosed with a fear of heights, and could not work on many projects, but a lower court dismissed his lawsuit, concluding that working at heights was an unavoidable condition of bridge maintenance. (The appeals court said that a jury “might” find that bridge maintenance could be done in “teams” with one worker always on the ground.)

The Redneck Chronicles

(1) Zachary Woody, 21, of Calhoun, Ga., was charged with aggravated assault in May after stabbing a friend. Allegedly, Woody had escalated what was initially just a fistfight over whether Fords are better than Chevrolets. (2) Joseph Hayes, 48, was arrested in South Memphis, Tenn., in June after allegedly threatening (with a gun in his waistband) the hostess of a birthday party to which his kids had been invited but which ran out of cake and ice cream. “Y’all didn’t save my kids no damn ice cream and cake,” he was heard to say, and “I ain’t

scared to go to jail.”

People With Issues

Stanley Thornton Jr., 30, and his “nurse”-roommate, Sandra Dias, featured on a May edition of the TV show “Taboo” (National Geographic Channel), are both drawing federal Supplemental Security Income as disabled persons, even though Thornton builds his own “adult baby” furniture (cribs and high chairs large enough to accommodate his 350-pound body) and operates a website where people living as adult babies can communicate. U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn asked the Social Security Administration to investigate whether Thornton is abusing the system (and Dias, too, since if she can “nurse” Thornton, she can “nurse” for a living).Thornton subsequently told The Washington Times that if his SSI checks were discontinued, he would kill himself.

Update

Lawrence Bottone, 52, of Stamford, Conn., served four years in prison in the late1990s for his fondness for attracting and convincing teenage boys and young men to strip down to underwear

and allow him to torture (and photograph) them — chaining them to his garage wall, whipping them and inserting stakes under their fingernails. In May 2011, police in Westchester County, N.Y., arrested Bottone for what appears to signal a return to his specialty but with an updated, 21st-century rationale: Now, according to police, he “recruits” young men to work at a fictitious “intelligence agency” — which requires Bottone to “train” them to withstand torture.

Brave Nude World

Nakedness Recently in the News: (1) Just after Clayton County, Ga., schoolteacher Harlan Porter was told his contract would not be renewed, he walked naked through the school hallways (no students were present) and spoke of a “newer level of enlightenment” now that his “third eye was open” (April). (2) After a clothing malfunction, veteran marathoner Brett Henderson, 35, decided during the Flying Pig race in Cincinnati that, since marathoners sometimes run naked in California, he could do it there. Henderson outran police and stopped only when he was Tasered (May).

DR. GOTT Second Opinion

Blood pressure problems common

DEAR DR. GOTT: I am a 68-year-old woman from Africa. My systolic blood pressure is constantly high, but never above 170 or so. With carvedilol/indapamide, it comes down to about 148-150. My diastolic blood pressure, even without medication, never goes above 70 and is usually in the 60s. I am intrigued by why this is so. Apart from this, my general health is very good to excellent. I am 5-foot-1 and weigh 130 pounds. I do aerobic/strength/weight exercises for one hour three times a week. My HDL is about 60, my LDL is about 210, and my Creactive protein is almost nil. My glucose level is usually 100 or below. I do not use salt, rarely eat out, snack on fruits and vegetables (mostly), do not smoke and do not drink excessively (maybe two glasses of wine per week). I do not use a lot of caffeine. I usually drink four cups of tea, half a cup of coffee and 32 ounces of water a day. I still work, and my job as an educational consultant is not that stressful. A long time ago I was told that my heart was larger on the right side, and I’ve wondered if this will have an effect on my blood pressure. My mother had hypertension and diabetes, both of which she controlled with diet for most of her life. She passed away at age 75. On the other hand, my father was very healthy except for kidney stones and passed away peacefully at the age of 96. DEAR READER: You have a type of hypertension known as isolated systolic hypertension, common in older individuals because artery elasticity is reduced. Systolic pressure is the force blood exerts against arterial walls during contractions of the heart. Diastolic is the pressure exerted between beats. So essentially what is happening is that when your heart contracts, the artery wall doesn’t stretch as much, thus increasing pressure, whereas between contractions, pressure returns to normal. The bottom line? You still have hypertension. You state that your LDL “bad” cholesterol is 210. This is extremely high, since a normal level is 100-129 or lower. I hope that this is simply a mistake and you wrote your total cholesterol level rather than your LDL. If not, I urge you to speak to your physician about possible treatment options, such as niacin, omega-3 fish oil, flaxseed oil, or prescription cholesterol-lowering TURN TO SECOND OPINION ON A13

DISTRESSED WOODS

Case that shocked Carlsbad to be featured on TV program By Shelli DeRobertis

A now-solved murder case that had shocked the entire community has captured the interest of a film producer, and is soon to be featured on the show “Cold Blood,” which airs on the Investigation Discovery channel. “This is the exact story of what good police work is — they caught the bad guy,” said Jacqueline Bynon, the show’s executive producer. The program will depict police efforts to solve the sexual assault and murder of 84year-old Gladys Conrad in her Carlsbad home, Sept. 1, 2001. The case was one of firsts for the police department, ultimately capturing the sus-

pect, Alejandro Avalos Fernandez, 34, through DNA matching and extradition. “It was the first case out of our office based partially on DNA evidence,” said Sylvia Tenorio, deputy district attorney, county of San Diego. It’s also the first case where a Mexican national was extradited back to San Diego, said Lt. Jay Eppel of the Carlsbad Police Department, and one of the local authorities interviewed for the show.

Prior to Conrad’s murder, a retired Carlsbad psychiatrist had been found dead in a similar manner. Police had managed to find traces of the suspect’s DNA but there were no solid leads as to the killer’s identity. The same DNA traces were found in Conrad’s case. Fernandez, who had fled to Mexico to avoid drug charges, returned to the U.S. TURN TO CONRAD ON A13

The 2011 theme of the fair is “Race to the Fair,” and the sheriff’s department brought in McGruff this year and set up a kid-sized street area to stick with the theme, said Marlee Chapman, crime prevention specialist who is supervising the event. Children who visit the booth are taken to the different sections of the miniature areas, such as the railroad track or stoplight, and are asked if they know the traffic safety rules. “They’re supposed to identify signs if they’re old enough.They get a package of silly bands if they do,” she said. The silly bands — a stretchy, rubber like bracelet popular amongst kids — were custom made, Chapman said, and featured bands with shapes such as a skateboard, patrol car and sheriff’s star. Car seat safety, skateboard safety, bicycle safety and road sign information was some of the educational material on hand for parents and kids. At least two sheriff’s department volunteers work the booth area with the crime prevention specialists, Chapman said. But volunteer Dawn Wagner said although she is helping with kids, she is

not helping with operating the remote controlled McGruff because its operator was doing a great job. “She is superb on the microphone. She is excellent,” Wagner said about Carmela Lutz, a crime prevention specialist for the Vista Sheriff’s Station who was the voice and movement behind McGruff. Lutz spoke into a headset while effortlessly controlling the movement of McGruff’s head, eyes and car. She initiated conversation with both parents and kids, and asked whatever safety related question came to mind. “Do you always wear your seat belt when you’re in a car?” McGruff asked a child who walked by with a parent. “Does mommy know that most car seats are put in incorrectly?” McGruff asked a mother who pushed a baby stroller. Lutz said she really enjoyed interacting with the people, and that the kids were well informed on the topic of safety and of calling 9-1-1. Lutz said she believes that parents talk more to their kids about what’s on the news and the Internet. “The kids are a lot more sophisticated these days,” she said.

Graydon Church, 11, has been a member of the Del Mar Junior Lifeguard program for four years. “I’ve never heard this music before, but I love it,” he said. “I love going to the beach and playing with my

friends. It’s cool to learn how to save people. If someone is in danger I know how to give CPR and use a life can.” Joie Nolasco of Rancho Penasquitos came with friend Mike Sick. “I’m a former lifeguard,” she said. “We decided we

‘Guimauve’ hard to say, easy to make Making your own marshmallows is one of those showoffy, culinary stunts that you should consider doing — just because you can. And because homemade marshmallows taste way better and fluffier, airier and less gummy than the packaged kind. And because you can dazzle everyone you know by presenting them with their French name, “guimauve” (ghee-MOHV). Gesine Bullock-Prado, the smart and spunky author of “Sugar Baby” (Stewart, Tabori & Chang, 2011), prefers to eat her “guimauve”straight: “No roasting, no melting, no chocolate dipping.” She also prefers piping them into a kind of fluffy rosette that is unrecognizable to those of us raised with the cylindrical confections found in pillowy plastic bags in the supermarket. And she prefers a renegade recipe that includes egg whites, which she says enhances flavor. If egg whites make you squeamish, leave them out. Bullock-Prado also includes directions (too long for this space) to flavor the marshmallows with chocolate, espresso, peanut butter, raspberry and maple. These confections, she says,“won't harsh your mellow.” Marshmallows are only one of many sweet treats in Bullock-Prado’s book, which she describes not as a baking book, and not as a candy book, but as a book about “cooking sugar.” It includes some baked goods (tortes, cakes, pies, her signature French macarons), some candies (caramels, taffy, brittles, lollipops) and some confections that can only be classified as “others,” which includes cotton candy, flavored syrups and “guimauve.” Note: if you combine a toasted “guimauve” with chocolate and graham crackers, you have a “smor-ay.” That’s French for s’more.

MARIALISA CALTA Kiss the Cook 2 cups sugar 1/2 cup corn syrup 1/2 cup hot water 2 egg whites (optional) 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or pure vanilla extract 1/2 cup cornstarch, plus more for dredging

In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, add the gelatin and pour the 1/3 cup water over it. Let it rest in the stand mixer (with the whisk in mixing position) until the sugar syrup is ready. Make sure the gelatin is completely saturated with water before you add your sugar syrup. In a heavy saucepan over medium-low heat, combine the sugar,corn syrup and hot water. Melt the mixture until the sugar has completely dissolved. Raise the heat to mediumhigh and allow the mixture to boil.With a damp pastry brush, wipe down the sides of the pan to prevent stray sugar crystals from forming. Clip on a candy thermometer and heat to 250 F. Meanwhile, if using egg whites, beat them with the salt until they hold a stiff peak. Because the stand mixer has the gelatin and whisk in it, you will have to beat the egg whites in a separate bowl; a copper bowl and whisk work well, or a stainless steel bowl and whisk, eggbeater or hand mixer. Caution: Any traces of fat in the bowl will deflate the whites, as will using a plastic bowl. Bring the pot with the hot sugar mixture to the bowl of the stand mixer. Set the mixer speed to medium-low and slowly add the hot sugar mixture, carefully and gently pouring it MARSHMALLOWS down the side of the bowl to 3 tablespoons unflavored avoid both splashing and scorching the gelatin (if you gelatin 1/3 cup room-temperature heat gelatin at too high a temperature, it loses its efficacy). water

Raise the mixer speed to high and beat until the mixture has started to stiffen and has doubled in volume. Add the egg whites, if using, the vanilla and, if you haven’t used the egg whites, the salt. Mix until light, white and fluffy. Cover a sheet pan with aluminum foil and sprinkle with the 1/2 cup cornstarch, making sure to cover every inch. For plain, square marshmallows: Spray a plastic spatula with nonstick spray and scoop the entire marshmallow mixture onto the pan. Using an offset spatula, also sprayed, smooth the marshmallow out into an even layer. Work fast — this stuff stiffens up quickly. Let the marshmallow dry for at least 4 hours or overnight. Using very sharp knife, a pizza cutter or scissors (each sprayed with nonstick spray), cut the marshmallows into bite-sized pieces. audits throughout the year, SWEEP Collazo explained, adding CONTINUED FROM A3 that the teams searched every were found to be out of com- corner of San Diego County to pliance with their parole sta- remind offenders that they tus. are being watched closely.

where he was later arrested in 2007 on drug charges, though he was released from custody before his DNA was entered into a database and matched to the two crimes. Fernandez would make his way back to Mexico. After the DNA matching was made, Tenorio said the district attorney’s office was not sure if Mexico would accept the evidence and extradite Fernandez. But they did. Tenorio handles international and domestic extraditions for the DA’s office, and said that before 2008 there were not any formal extraditions from Mexico. “Now we’re extraditing on a regular basis,” she said.

Fernandez is now seen as the “poster boy” for extradition relations and marking the beginning of great progress between the two countries. “My office became actively involved in 2008,” Tenorio said, and added that since then, there have been nine formal returns, and six who are currently in custody. She said the extradition process can be lengthy and, that from the time she is presented the case until an extradition happens, it may take between one to two years. Eppel said that the show’s producers approached the department in April, saying that the Conrad case fits the type of cases that are featured on the program. The show is expected to air this fall on Investigation Discovery.

Dredge each piece in cornstarch, making sure each cut edge is covered, otherwise the pieces will stick to anything and everything. You can also use a sharp cookie cutter (sprayed) to make shapes. Dredge in cornstarch. For curvy marshmallows, use a pastry bag fitted with a large star tip to pipe shapes onto the prepared pan. Dredge in cornstarch as above. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks. Marshmallows made without egg whites will last much longer, up to several months. Yield: about 40 marshmallows.

drugs, statin and non-statin alike. Combined with your hypertension, high cholesterol further increases your risk of heart attack and stroke. Also remember that a diet high in fats such as certain meats, cheeses and other dairy items, snack foods, butter, luncheon meats and more, will raise the LDL level.These food items should be reduced or removed from your diet. You may benefit from reducing your tea intake. The caffeine in it is quite variable and can raise both systolic and diastolic values. Now about your rightsided heart enlargement: I think you need to be seen by a cardiologist to have this further investigated. While you have had this a “long time,” seemingly without symptoms, it could be an indication of a problem such as pulmonary hypertension. How long is a “long time?”Years? Decades? How long have you had the hypertension? Did the two findings coincide. Without knowing more about your health history, it is impossible for me to say whether your right-sided enlarged heart is to blame — in full or in part — for your hypertension. My feeling is that it isn’t, but I cannot say this with any certainty. Make an appointment with your cardiologist to discuss your concerns. He or she is your best source for answers.

GOTT: Thank you for your good advice column.Your article about lichen sclerosus helped me to diagnose my condition after being misdiagnosed for two years. Many thanks! DEAR READER: I am glad I was able to help. I choose to answer certain questions for a number of reasons, including mass appeal (topics such as hypertension, cholesterol, etc.) that will interest many of my readers, topics that interest me, and common conditions that many people are embarrassed to discuss with their own physicians, such as lichen sclerosus. Often women and men will suffer in silence with a common, treatable condition simply because it affects a part of their body that is considered private. Any doctor worth his salt will not ridicule, mock or otherwise humiliate a patient because of an embarrassing problem. Any physician who chooses to doesn’t deserve to practice. Medicine shouldn’t be about money or fame, but about helping. Dr. Peter H. Gott is a retired physician and the author of several books, including "Live Longer, Live Better," "Dr. Gott's No Flour, No Sugar Diet" and "Dr. Gott's No Flour, No Sugar Cookbook," which are available at most bookstores or online.

The livin’ is easy in the summertime Oh yeah. It’s officially summertime. The calendar says so and the weather is making a solid effort to get with the program here on the coast. As I look across these 50 states, I do see a growing need for man to finally figure out a way to control the weather. We’ve been mucking around with it since the dark ages. With technology being where it is, I really think somebody ought to get on it and fast. Half the country is under water and here we sit with the marine layer clamped over what would otherwise be perfect days. I, myself, am working on inventing a really small but powerful vacuum that will suck up our marine layer and deliver it to El Cajon, San Marcos and other points east. I haven’t got all the physics ironed out yet, but it will somehow spit their endless sunshine out back here for us coastal dwellers. Does anyone have any friends at Dyson? Meanwhile, school is out and I did open my door to a big whiff of ocean air today. I swear, one or two lungs full takes five years off of me.And while I have a few more hours a day to spare, I have not reached my Nirvana of being able to stay home and putter around. Just because we have several more hours of light should not mean that I have to get more done. I subscribe to the “Porgy and Bess” take on this season. The livin’ should be easy. And on that note, I simply have to suggest a few books for summer reading. I discovered “Sisters of the Sari,” by Brenda L. Baker when it was sent to The Coast News for a review. It places a strong, kind American CEO in Chennai, India. It is a wonderful story about how her life intertwines with women of every social strata.

Cunningham is SDSU dean of business admin By Patty McCormac

RANCHO SANTA FE — Rancho Santa Fe resident Dr. Michael Cunningham was recently named dean of the College of Business Administration at San Diego State University. As the 19th largest business school in the nation, third in California and 35th largest in the world, Cunningham said he knows he has his work cut out for him during these lean times. But the fact that the country is in the middle of a recession does not seem to slow him down at all. “I think it is wonderful. I think there is a lot of opportunity in adversity,” he said. Cunningham is filled with energy and optimism about his new job and couldn’t wait to get started. In fact, he said he has been working for two months in preparation, focusing on strategy, structure and systems. He said he expected his first day to be ceremonial and symbolic. “I want to celebrate our faculty, students and alumni and business community,” he said. “We need to make sure our students are great communicators, critical thinkers and team players, as well as having the basic blocking and tackling skills of a traditional business education,” he said. Cunningham is no stranger to academia. He earned his master’s in graphic

communications, management and technology in 1996, and his Ph.D. in administration, leadership and technology in 2005 from New York University. He earned his bachelor’s degree in marketing and business management from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst in 1982. He has

taught at both Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and New York University. He has been teaching management/entrepreneurship courses at SDSU since 2005. “What we do is offer a wonderful education to our students. It is a real, practical education. We have the

largest alumni network in San Diego from the business school.” He said there are 60,000 alumni and 80 percent are still in Southern California. “That is key. It will give them (students) skills and the knowledge to help them get the job they need,” he said. Some business school graduates have gone on to great careers such as Linda Lang, CEO of Jack in the Box; Mark Snell, CFO of Sempra Energy; and Scott Sulka, a serial entrepreneur in the biotech industry, he said. “It’s my second career,” Cunningham said. “I decided to take a position with higher education to make an impact on my life. I wanted to create many opportunities for as many students as I can and give back. I’ll be able to do that in a very meaningful way.” What he hopes to accomplish during that time is to make the business school one of the top in the country. One way he plans to do this, even with the precarious financial situation in California, is to come up with creative ways to increase revenue. “The state basically limits the amount of students we can take in from the state. So we will go after out-of-state and out-of-country students,” he said. This will not affect instate students adversely, he said. “The out-of-state stu-

dents are not taking the places of the in-state students, but the out-of-state students pay double tuition and do not receive aid from the state of California,” he said. “This will allow us to attract diversity of experience and ethnic and geographic diversity that will dove tail into one of our main missions — to supply a well rounded, top quality student to the work force,” he said. He said a big part of his job also is just getting the word out on what a jewel the college of business is. “There is the saying: ‘Untold. Unsold,’” he said. “I need to tell the story of how good our students are. They have the eye of the tiger, fire in the belly and they really want to make a difference in the world.” He said he thinks that people look at the CSU system as a big homogeneous system and that they are all alike and that the UC system is much better. Cunningham said he hopes to change that perception. “They don’t realize that it was the number one small college in the state and the top 20 selected university in the nation. Last year, there were 66,000 applicants and less than 5,000 got accepted,” he said. Cunningham knows of which he teaches having built TURN TO DEAN ON B11

Consumer Reports’ latest tests of 39 room air conditioners found that you don’t have to spend a lot to cool down as the mercury climbs. Thirteen top performers start at just $150. CR’s findings include: Big values for small spaces. Lower prices help make small-room air conditioners the hottest sellers. The small category includes units with a cooling capacity of 5,000 to 6,500 Btu/hr. They cool roughly 100 to 300 square feet and weigh 41 to 70 pounds. All six that CR recommends kept working when the voltage was dropped to mimic brownout conditions. At $150, the Kenmore 70051, $150, is a CR Best Buy. LG’s compact LW5011 might seem like a bargain at $50 less. But that light (37.5-pound) model was also a lightweight in the brownout test, stopping when voltage dropped and requiring close to full power to restart. It did not make CR’s list of picks. Another CR Best Buy in the small category is the Frigidaire LRA074AT7, $165. — Midsized style at a price. In the midsized category (7,000 to 8,200 Btu/hr., cooling roughly 250 to 400 square feet and weighing 53 to 75 pounds), the Friedrich Kuhl SS08M10, $800, could be the only air conditioner that matches the drapes, since it comes in seven colors, including pink diamond and cobalt blue. Superb cooling, relatively quiet running, and a high energy-efficiency ratio are part of that investment. Two lowerpriced picks: the Sharp AFS85RX (Costco), $180, and the LG LW8010ER, $200, both CR Best Buys, which cooled comparably and almost as efficiently with a bit more noise. — Large models for less. In the large category (9,800 to 12,500 Btu/hr. category, cooling roughly 350 to 650 square feet and weighing 64 to 92 pounds), the top-scoring LG LW1210ER, $320, and the LG LW1010ER, $285, cost less than some small models and deliver more cooling for the money.

How to remove hairspray residue

Dear Sara: I had a longterm house guest, who was an abundant user of hairspray. When she moved out recently, I noticed that the bathroom door, which she always stood in front of to do her hair, is coated with the sticky residue from her hairspray. The door is a stained polyresin door, and I’m unsure as to how to get the residue off without ruining the finish. Can you suggest any solvents? Thank you. — Debbie K., e-mail. Dear Debbie: Test a small area and use rubbing alcohol. That would work the fastest. Simply apply it with a sponge and rinse it off with a sponge dampened with water. If you’re unable to use that, try a spray bottle with 1/3 fabric softener or shampoo to 2/3 water. Shake it to mix, then spray and wipe. Dear Sara: In your recent column concerning detergent buildup in towels, your solution was to use borax in the wash cycle and vinegar in the rinse. My question is, how much vinegar do I use and should I keep rinsing until there is no more soap in the rinse cycle? — Dewey D., e-mail. Dear Dewey: Wash your towels alone (without any other articles of clothing), in hot water at the highest water level, and use baking soda, washing soda, borax or Charlie’s Soap (www.charliesoap.com) instead of your usual laundry detergent. Use 1/4 cup (up to a cup if you’re able to) vinegar in your rinse cycle — using the fabric softener reservoir — and a double rinse cycle. Then dry. If you find that the towels still have buildup and are still quite scratchy, continue to launder with the above products. It might take a couple of washes to remove all the residue. You might need to check the hardness of your water, too. Dear Sara: I give our old prescription bottles to our veterinarian. I have trouble getting the labels off of some of the bottles. Can you help me? — Barb R., e-mail Dear Barb: If soaking them in hot, soapy water doesn’t work, use vegetable or baby oil, rubbing alcohol, Goo Gone or WD-40. Any of them will work to remove the adhesive from plastic.

Governor dismisses 3 Del Mar fair board members By Bianca Kaplanek

Admitting it may sound “pathetic,” Barry Nussbaum said he plans to reapply for a seat on the 22nd District Agricultural Association board of directors, which manages the Del Mar Fairgrounds, despite recent news he would no longer serve in the position he has held since 1999. In a June 9 phone call — the night before the opening of the San Diego County Fair — Nussbaum said Gov. Jerry Brown’s appointments secretary notified him that the governor was not reappointing him. “It was a surprise,” said Nussbaum, whose term expired in January. “But it’s politics.” He said he was given no reason except that the administration was going to go in a different direction and there would be new

appointments to fair boards across the state. Board members are appointed by the governor to serve a four-year term, which receives no pay, but benefits include free parking and admission to fairground events. Prior to Brown’s decision, Nussbaum was the longest serving current board member and one of only two appointed by former Gov. Gray Davis. In addition to Nussbaum, who was serving his second term as president, Brown also chose not to reappoint Kelly Burt and Vivian Hardage. As of June 9, the terms of all but two of the nine directors were up. The terms of the remaining four expired at the same time or earlier than those of the three who weren’t reappoint-

ed (see chart). All members of the primarily Republican board had been appointed or reappointed by former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. “The board members serve at the pleasure of the governor,” said Evan Westrup, a spokesman for Gov. Brown. “There were hundreds of appointments made by the previous administration. The standard practice is for the new governor to make his own appointments.” Westrup said the expiration of terms is one of many factors taken into account when considering appointments. In terms of other aspects, “we don’t get into personnel decisions,” he added. The positions are now vacant and will remain so TURN TO FAIR BOARD ON B15

Sheriff’s department ramps up patrols for the summer By Shelli DeRobertis

Thefts, trouble and alcohol-fueled crimes increase with summertime events and tourism, but the Sheriff’s Encinitas Station Coastal Enforcement Team (CET) is coming up with new ways to combat crime on the coast this season. A team of eight deputies have begun a summer enforcement campaign,working sevendays-a-week through Labor Day — a beat that stretches from Solana Beach to north Encinitas to help ensure a pleasant and safe atmosphere for residents, visitors and business owners in the downtown and coastal areas. “The tourists don’t just go into the sand,” said Sgt. Karen Stubkjaer of the Encinitas Sheriff’s Station.“Our goal is to provide a safe and enjoyable environment for our residents

and visitors.” Stubkjaer supervises CET, which began enforcement of the beat June 10. “We have a completely new philosophy this year,” she said.“That philosophy includes more education and high visibility of the deputies.” “We’re educating people, talking to people and being proactive instead of reactive.” She said that during the summer there is an increase of alcohol related crimes, including drunk driving, due to the increase of people heading to the beaches. Some of the other crimes that increase during the summer include thefts from cars.To help combat those thefts and burglaries, the CET will be patrolling the Cedros area of Solana Beach and downtown HOT SPOT D&E=:6'7$::'($)E&%:&)'*$#F<':;&')&</,&%:/$#',&$,G&%,',)/5&'"%':;&'HII'J#"0F'"+'K,3&J=):',=)G TURN TO PATROL ON B11

Delgado fullfils dream of dancing, helps others By Lillian Cox

Marisa Soltis Delgado grew up fulfilling the dream of many little girls of becoming a ballerina. She began studying ballet at the age of 8 at the venerable Harkness Ballet in New York City. As a child she danced with the Royal Ballet at the Met for First Lady Nancy Reagan and Prince Charles.At 15 she became the youngest member of the Milwaukee Ballet. Delgado performed at Boston’s famous Emerson Majestic Theatre for seven years while also dancing for Ballet Theatre of Boston. She was subsequently principal ballerina with the Fort Wayne Ballet where she met her future husband, principal male danseur Bernie Delgado. Now Delgado is giving others the opportunity to fulfill the same dream by holding auditions for a “Little Women” workshop sponsored by her new Global Masterclass ballet program for pre-professional training. There are 25 to 30 openings for boys and girls between the ages of 10 to 23. The workshop will consist of master classes and rehearsals. It will begin Sept. 4 from noon to 3 p.m. at Dance Connection in Encinitas and continue every

week until a holiday performance in November. “Students will be participating in the process of this choreographic construction of a two-act world premier, created here in San Diego,” she said. “Select dancers will be chosen to perform at the historic Orchard House Museum Centennial Celebration, May 2012 in Concord, Mass.” Orchard House is the site where Louisa May Alcott wrote the book “Little Women.” It has been a museum since 1912. “Professional guest artists will also appear in the production courtesy of Colorado Ballet, State Street Ballet in Santa Barbara and Princeton Ballet for the leading male roles,” she said. “This is a wonderful opportunity for young dancers to work with seasoned professionals.” Delgado is also recruiting donors and volunteers to help with costumes, props and scenery. Ten percent of ticket sales from the Encinitas performance of “Little Women” will be donated to the Preservation Foundation of the Orchard House. “In this we help ensure that the home of one of our most famous women writers will live on for generations to

come,” she said. Delgado was assistant director of Orange County’s Ballet Pacifica, and a ballet

instructor for 18 years for the Ballet Theatre of Boston, Ballet Pacifica and Walnut Hill School for the Arts in

Natick, Mass. where her ballet students included her sixyear-old daughter. “I love ballet so much and watching my Mom teach class is really special to me,” Giselle Delgado said. In developing the business model for Global Masterclass, Delgado envisioned great master teachers from around the country traveling to Encinitas to guest teach. “I can count 10 colleagues on my fingers right now that would come to Global Masterclass to benefit the dance community here,” she said. “When you’ve been in a specialized profession for 30 years, there is a lot of education to share. We have a lot to give and a lot to teach!” Currently, Delgado is accepting appointments for private coaching for pre-professional ballet dancers. Global Masterclass will also offer ballet technique, pointe, classical variations, pas de deux classes and adult ballet conditioning class taught by Bernie Delgado.

By offering instruction in gardening, greenhouses, the “farm to table” movement, campus beautification/planting, recycling and habitat corridors, Grauer explained that the school does qualify as a “green school.” The Grauer School has limited enrollment of up to 150 students, capping class sizes at 12 students. “We can’t have big (sports) teams, but that’s OK,” he said. “Education shouldn’t be ‘one size fits all.’ Our design allows us to cater education to the unique aspects of students and facul-

ty.”

“You can see how much that relationship really means,” said Clayton Payne, dean of students. A weekly assembly is centered around a large hearth in the Great Room. “We’ll sit and tell stories and share successes,” Grauer said. “I usually have a moral that I want to talk about every week.” The school boasts an active music program, with 40 percent of its students participating. One of the key features of an education at The Grauer School is their Expeditionary Learning program. Students spend at least two weeks each year outside the school walls on expeditions that have taken them from Yosemite National Park to every continent except Antarctica.

Rose Foundation grant funds Center for Children program The Rose Foundation has chosen to support the San Diego Center for Children with a matching grant that will allow a state-of-the-art behavioral health diagnostic program to be offered to potential residents that the center serves. As San Diego’s oldest nonprofit serving children, the San Diego Center for Children has been caring for the most vulnerable young people since 1887. Today, the center continues to provide an array of mental health and academic programs for children who have experienced trauma, abuse, or who have emotional and/or mental challenges. Due to this exceptional contribution from The Rose Foundation, the center will be able to further finetune its diagnostic assessment of children requiring residential treatment. “Given the complexity of the children we help, we believe that more refined and individualized diagnosis and treatment plans are critical to help ensure each child’s success,” said Director of Clinical Operations at the Center, Cheryl Rode, Ph.D., “Until now, no funding has been avail-

able at the center to complete as comprehensive a psychological diagnostic assessment as we believe is needed for treatment of children at this high level of care. “Psychological testing and academic testing are sometimes available through school referrals to the center, but may not be complete or current to address the severity of concerns leading to residential placement,” she said. “We were very impressed with the work that the San Diego Center for Children does for children county-wide,” said CEO of The Rose Foundation, Dixie Newman, after a recent tour of the center. “We feel fortunate that we are able to

help these children overcome some of their challenges through this diagnostic assessment tool. The San Diego TURN TO GRANT ON B11

Soccer team brings home top prize The girls of Carmel Valley’s Manchester White Soccer team brought home the gold at the Girls Under14 division of the Manchester Cup Tournament played during the weekend of June 11 and

June 12. The Manchester squad won 2-0 in the final game against Kodiak. The first goal was scored by Samantha Queen at the end of the first half and the second by Ericka

Banda. In pool play Manchester bested the Vaqueros 5-1 and then lost to the same Kodiak team 0-2. Coaches Gus Del Medico and Bill Murphy led the team.

Given all of the coverage on the rising cost of a college education, one would think that parents had taken notice and devised a plan. The reality is that most parents haven't thought about how to fund this huge expense and many don't seem to address this elephant until it is sitting on top of them. For many families, how to correctly save, invest their money or fill out financial aid forms remains a mystery. The details of loans, grants, saving plans and even financial gifts are complicated and greatly affect your college cost. We recently went through the ordeal of sending a student off to college. My husband and I had saved for this expense and were surprised to see that what we had wasn't enough. College admission and cost has changed (a lot) since we were there. With the looming cost of college and the thought of draining our retirement or going into debt, we looked for someone to help us get a better understanding of our options. Fortunately, we have friends that had recently been in our shoes

and we asked for their guidance. Our friends sent us to a free workshop hosted by College Planning Source. I couldn't believe the wealth of knowledge that we received at this workshop. Michelle Mai (founder of CPS) covered everything from college planning myths, mistakes, what questions to ask colleges, types of aid and most importantly to us, how to cover this cost without sabotaging our financial future. After attending we were offered a one hour, no obligation, free consultation were we sat down and addressed our specific situation, needs and subsequent fears of sending our child off to school. After signing up with CPS, Michelle and her team helped my husband and I understand the process of funding this expense and gave us a much needed reality check on our options and the debt that we could afford. Aside from helping us understand this process; the CPS counselors worked with our son and encouraged him to stay on top of his grades and test scores. College is increasingly competitive and our son was also offered a reality check of

sorts. The CPS team helped him find his “best fit” college and assisted him in “profiling” the life that he wanted after school and what it would take to achieve that. For the first time since we started this process, we feel confident that we are on track and making the right decisions. The only regret we have is not reaching out for help sooner. It is never too soon to start to plan and save for this expense. College Planning Source can provide you with the tools to create the best blue print for your family. CPS has four free workshops coming up this summer; Saturday, July 16, 2011 at Carmel Mountain Library (10:30am-11:45am), Saturday, July 23, 2011 at Carmel Valley Library (10:30am-11:45am), Saturday, August 6, at Carmel Mountain Library (10:30am11:45am) and Saturday August 13, 2011 at Carmel Valley Library (10:30am-11:45am) There are a limited number of seats; you can register by visiting their website at www.collegeplanningsource.com or by calling 858-676-0700.

Synchro swimmers earn trip to nationals Twenty members of San Dieguito Synchro headed to the U.S. Age Group National Synchronized Swimming Championships in Washington in June. The girls earned their berth with an impressive showing at the Southern California Regional Championships in La Mirada May 21.

Competing against the top synchronized swim clubs from Los Angeles, Orange County, Riverside and San Diego, the San Dieguito Synchro’s 13- to 15-year-olds team and the11- and 12-yearold teams took silver medals. The 16- and 17-year-old team earned a silver medal as well, along with the club’s 16-

to 17-year team soloist, Cora Kohn of Carmel Valley. This will be the third trip to the national championships for the local club, which was founded just seven years ago and now has more than 70 swimmers. “The girls set their sights on the national championships last fall and

they’ve been working very hard all year toward that goal” said Head coach Barbara Strenk. “I am very proud of their accomplishments.” San Dieguito Synchro will hold synchro summer camp again this year. Swimmers interested in trying this sport are invited to

attend the club’s Introduction to Synchronized Swimming Camp, held Aug. 9 through Aug. 12 at Cathedral Catholic High School. For information about the camp and synchro programs, visit sdsynchro.org or contact Barbara Strenk at (760) 633-3034.

Read all about Carlsbad’s Daily News Café DAVID BOYLAN Lick the Plate One of the great things about writing this column is that it gives me the opportunity to sample such a wide variety of eating establishments in North County. I personally need that mix to keep things real and not become a food snob, where everything I eat must meet some foodie criteria. The Daily News Café, in the heart of downtown Carlsbad, is one of those casual eateries to stop in for breakfast or lunch to get a good solid meal at a reasonable price. The breakfast and lunch crowd at the cafe is made up of a refreshing mix of just about every demographic. There are seniors, local worker bees, night shift restaurant workers just getting up and tourists coming up from the beach. It’s a bustling place for sure, with a nice outside patio and indoor dining area that always seems full. It’s a great place to go

with a couple of newspapers and some time on your hands while enjoying a leisurely meal. As much as I’ve become immersed in the digital age, there is something soothing about taking a step back, slowing down and actually reading a newspaper over a solid meal at a place like the Daily News Café, and what an appropriately named place at that. Breakfast is served all day and they have a full selection of what they call “Omnipotent Omelettes.” I guess that’s referring to the quantity of the portions. Huevos Rancheros are an option, along with a breakfast burrito and eggs Benedict. Our server said the homemade cinnamon bread French toast was their signature breakfast item, and I already have a return trip planned to give that it try. Biscuits with country gravy are another hearty option and on the other end of the manly scale is a nice selection of crepes that comes with an enticing option of red potatoes. So, yes, they have just about every breakfast option covered here, and the only dish over $10 is the crab and shrimp crepes at $10.95.

The lunch options are almost overwhelming. Including specials, I counted over 40 dishes available. There is a chicken sandwich section, belly bomb burgers, south of the menu, serious salads and sandwich heaven. It all looked good except I’m not sure referring to the burgers as belly bombers is an enticing choice of menu copy. That’s just the marketing guy in me nitpicking, though. They really are all over the map, providing something for everyone on the lunch

menu. I don’t know how I missed the lobster roll, but I’m now very curious to see if they can pull that off. I started with a solid cup of New England clam chowder, and then went for one of the daily specials — a grilled Rueben. I consider myself a bit of a connoisseur of Rueben’s, having grown up around some serious delis. The Daily News Café version did not disappoint. It was a perfect mix of lean corned beef, sauerkraut, melted Swiss cheese and Thousand

Island dressing served on grilled rye bread. This really is sandwich perfection and they nailed it. It came with a choice of sides and I went with the pasta salad. There is a lot of lobster, crab and shrimp on the menu with the mermaid salad and a sandwich version of that as well. The mermaid salad is the priciest dish on the lunch menu at $12.95. Everything else on the lunch menu is under $10.There is a full kid’s portion of the menu all priced below $4. What a great way to appeal to people with kids. The Daily News Café has something for just about everyone on their menu which makes it a great place to consider when you are looking for a place to please everyone in a large group. I have lunch meetings in Carlsbad on a regular basis and have found my new go-to lunch spot. I’ll be trying the breakfast, soon. For more information, visit dailynewscafe.com.

A fourth suspect was arrested June 23 in connection with the double homicide of two teenagers last month at Libby Lake Park. Tyrone Blackmon, 29, was arrested during a probation search at a Sun City residence and charged with being an accessory to murder with a gang allegation, according to police. Oceanside detectives, SWAT team and a San Diego County fugitive task force conducted an early morning probation search at two Riverside County homes as part of the investigation. Blackmon was at the home of Savalia McKnight, also a documented gang member, at the 27000 block of Spring Meadow Court in Sun City. McKnight was also taken into custody for parole violation after authorities found ammunition in the home, according to acting Capt. Leonard Mata, of the Oceanside Police Department. Oceanside SWAT also served a search warrant June 23 at the 38000 block of Clearbrook Drive in Murrieta, at which time Eric Allen was arrested for being a convicted felon and having possession of a firearm and ammunition and a gang allegation, Mata said.

MACHEL PENN SHULL Machel’s Ranch June gloom seems to be lifting and there have been sunny skies here in Rancho Santa Fe, which has me pondering a story I can’t seem to forget. Do you remember the devastating tornado that hit Joplin, Mo., at the end of May? If you do, then I’m sure you’ve heard of Will Norton. He was the 18-year-old high school student that had just graduated less than an hour before his life was tragically cut short on his way home after the ceremony. While the rest of us here and in the other parts of the country may complain about the imperfect skies, the residents in Joplin are trying to rebuild their lives. We’re talking about grieving over loved ones, while losing your home, your car and your place of work. Can you imag- WILL NORTON ine? If you have a moment, I encourage you to check out Will’s facebook page at facebook.com/FindWillNorton. Will Norton looked like one of the happiest, enthusiastic individuals I’ve ever seen photographed.The one thing is for sure, while he was alive, he was smiling from his soul. Let’s hope we can try and take advantage of each day we are given, and count our many blessings. Let us remember that smile on Will Norton’s face, and let it help to remind us to find the joy in our own lives — just like the joy found in many of the photographs posted on his memorial page. My prayers are with the Joplin residents, and Will Norton’s family.

On June 11,The Rancho Santa Fe Majors Yankees team played in the Coast Cities Tournament against the Encinitas Padres.You wouldn’t know it from the smile on these Yankee players — Patrick, Matthew, and Raul, Jackson — that they had just lost the game 6-

7 — as evidenced by this photograph taken after the game. Why the smiles? After playing an average season, this team recovered and played competitively in the tournament, making it three games before losing that day. Congrats to these boys for coming back, finding spirit and trying their best in the CCT. The Yankees didn’t win that day, but they definitely finished well! On June 12, The San Diego Polo Club held their opening day bash. One of my favorite residents in the Ranch, Elaine Gallagher, celebrated in style with family and friends. She was kind enough to share this gorgeous photo of her with Kathy Herington, standing in front of just one of the many Ferraris on display. Polo ponies and red Ferraris — that sounds like a scene right out of “Pretty Woman,” but happening right here in our own neighborhood! If you want to share in the glamour and enjoy polo events, check out sandiegopolo.com for this year’s schedule. Thanks Elaine for keeping me in the social loop. On June 13,The AAA Del Mar Scrappers made it to the final four in the Coast Cities Tournament! Featured here are two of the Scrappers players, Holden MacDonald, and Grayson Le Rose. These boys had an amazing season and are definitely champions for doing so well in the tournament and for having an excellent season. Thank you Meredith for sharing this photo in this issue! Congrats on a wonderful year in baseball. For inquiring minds that may want to know, Holden is the grandson of Ranch resident Violet MacDonald.

As a little league mom, I had to share these victories and updates for all of the residents and families to see. A big thanks to all of the coaches in these leagues for taking time out of your schedule to help make this season a memorable one for all of the players. On June 17, Cheryl Wilcox, R. Roger Rowe’s head secretary, worked her last day of school in the Rancho Santa Fe School District. After 18 years, Cheryl is retiring. I will be sad to see her go. Cheryl has always been a tremendous help to me if I ever needed any information, or needed help with something. Thank CHERYL WILCOX

you Cheryl for being so wonderful always, and I hope you enjoy your retirement. I am sure many will miss you.

Carlsbad artist gaining international acclaim also compared me to Claude Lorrain and other 17th and 18th century European and Renaissance artists.” During her studies at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, Chapman remembers sitting in front of the Old Master’s paintings and sometimes studying them for hours. “I wanted to challenge myself to get as close as I could to the original painting,” she said. Chapman perfected her gift over the years and today her portraits command $6,000 to $25,000. Her scope of work includes oil paintings, some as large as 6-feetby-8-feet, and murals, too. Her original “Masterpiece Collection” of hand-painted pillows and shades have been showcased in the books “The French Connection” and THE UNEXPECTED B<,(&'32")(:E&@:&&'())$*("&+,-./-);&B>$#,&/: “Inspirations from France 6-)1%0-.(%4& F& ,-G(& -)& $1(-& 5,-#& F& 5-)#& 5,()& F& %#-"#4& -)1& $#& -65-:% and Italy” written by best@(03/(%& %3/(#,$)8& (6%(4E& +,-./-)& %-$1;& BH%2-66:4& /:& @(%#& .-$)#$)8% selling author and designer -"(& 2)(I.(0#(1& *"3/& /:& $/-8$)-#$3);E& & Photo courtesy of Jennifer Betty Lou Phillips.

Growing up in Minneapolis, Jennifer Chapman was required to go down to her father’s art studio in the family basement, pick up a brush and add her contribution to a painting he had in progress to earn spending money for the weekend. Her dad is world-

renowned golf artist Loyal H. Chapman, best known for his “Infamous Golf Holes” series. “My dad was my best teacher,” Chapman said. “He is a watercolorist who is into realism, which is very hard to do. People see a little Hudson River school influence in my work, and have

Golf club hires pro to grow women’s programs The Grand Golf Club at The Grand Del Mar has named Kristen Muranyi as its new assistant golf professional. Muranyi will focus her attentions on creating and expanding the club’s growing women members, said Shawn G. Cox, the club’s director of golf. “As the numbers of female golfers continue to grow we plan to place a bigger emphasis on golf programs and instruction for women,” Cox said. “Kristen is a highly credentialed golf professional and the ideal candidate to work with us as we move forward to accomplish this goal.” Muranyi is a graduate of Beloit College with a bachelor’s degree in economics, management and mathematics. She is a Titleist Performance Institute Level-1 instructor and has previously worked as assistant golf professional/instructor at the Bishops Bay Country Club in Middleton, Wisc. Muranyi was also the varsity girl’s golf coach at Monona Girls High School in Monona,

“Jennifer Chapman’s original paintings on leather morphed into salon pillows pay homage to France and Italy with their magnificence,” Phillips said. “Without question, I am delighted that her accomplishments wound their way into my design books. Indeed, befitting an admired artist, Jennifer Chapman channels historical references true to the period into her work.” Chapman’s subjects are usually landscapes and portraits, often of contemporary women dressed as 18th century queens. “I love the fine detailing, designing the jewelry and gowns and adding personal touches requested by the client,” she said. “I had one client who asked that I add her daughter’s soccer ball to a 18th century portrait of her. I enjoyed her wanting to ‘mix it up.’ It was a good call, fun.” One of Chapman’s best works is titled, “The English Vale.” “With my landscapes, I have an idea what I want when I start, and it always becomes something else,” she said. “I run with it. Usually, my best paintings are unexpected from my imagination.” Many of her paintings, such as “The Journey” and “Nicole’s Sanctuary,” are available in limited edition prints, signed and numbered. Prices range from $250 to $650. Chapman also derives great pleasure in creating animal portraits for her clients. “I usually take a favorite photo and embellish it in an

Old Master’s-style landscape or interior,” she said. “One client came with their dog Chi, a rescue with no back legs. Such a happy little dog, he pulled himself around my kitchen and yet was so proud. I painted Chi in a very noble setting, very regal. The client was thrilled. I loved it.” As time permits, Chapman offers master art classes to small groups of no

more than three. “My approach to teaching is that if you want to paint like me, then I have to teach you to copy me using the same brushes, paints and canvas,” she said. “After eight weeks my students leave with their own masterpiece in hand. It’s a very exciting process.” To view more work from Chapman’s gallery, visit jenniferchapmandesign.com.

Swimmer meets his rescuers, offers gratitude By Lillian Cox

Jackson Hawkins knows the pressures of competitive swimming, but nothing in his young life could compare to the case of nerves he had June 27 when he met the two girls who saved his life Memorial Day weekend. Jackson, who lives in Las Vegas, was at the William Woollett Jr. Aquatics Center in Irvine for a swim competition May 28 when he was challenged by friends to swim 75meters underwater. Annie Driscoll, who was awaiting her own meet, noticed Jackson lying lifeless at the bottom of the pool. She plunged beneath the water to get a closer look and saw bubbles coming from his mouth.Without thinking of her own safety, Annie, a slightly built 15-year-old, lifted the head of the 6 feet 4 inches, 192 pounds Jackson above the water where she was assisted by Maddi Uehelbor who had already notified a lifeguard that something was terribly wrong. On June 27 a ceremony was held at the Boys and Girls Club of Solana Beach, where the girls compete on the Rancho San Dieguito Swim Team, to honor their heroism. Jackson traveled to Solana Beach for the event from a com-

petition earlier in the day at the same aquatics center in Irvine where the incident occurred a few weeks earlier. “I was really nervous coming to this pool and meeting the girls who saved my life,” he said. “I said to myself, ‘don’t mess up.’” Jackson was gracious as kids stood in line along the swimming pool to shake his hand and wish him well. The tall, athletic swimmer said there was nothing embarrassing about being saved by two

girls. “I’m awestruck,” he said. “It was amazing how they lifted 192 pounds out of 10 feet of water.” He reported that his doctor estimated that he had held his breath during the race for 1:30 minutes before losing consciousness. “I think it might have been 1:50 minutes,” he added. “Annie pulled me up right away.She didn’t come up for air first to get the lifeguard. If she had, it would have been over. I would have been dead or had

irreversible brain damage.” Jackson said the incident changed his life. He offers this advice to other kids. “Don’t do stupid things that put your life at risk,” he said. “My mom gets annoyed now because I’ll say, ‘Hey, slow down! Don’t drive so fast. I’m watching you.’” Jackson’s mother, Nicole Hawkins, was also at the ceremony. “Going through the process of thinking I could lose Jackson, then having him celebrate his 16th birthday a few days later was very overwhelming,” she said. “I believe it was the hand of God that allowed it (the incident) to play out all right.” Both girls are entering 10th grade later this summer, Annie at Carlsbad High and Maddi at La Costa Canyon High. Maddi says the incident changed her life, too. “It’s made me more aware of my surroundings and aquatic safety,” she said. “You never think it’s going to happen, but it’s good to pay attention.” Jackson says he plans to stay in touch with his lifesavers when he returns to Las Vegas. “I have Annie on Facebook,” he said. “We weren’t friends before. I think we are now.”

Drive near Coast Highway 101 (who asked to not be identified) said that she gets a little worried sometimes when she drives to her house late at night because of the activity that takes place on her dead-end street that is located behind a bar. Another resident on the same street also said she has seen people fish-tailing out of the bar and that it’s common for people to hang out in the open field after the bar closes, hopping residential fences and littering. She was glad to hear that CET plans to target the area. Bobby Virk, owner of a 7Eleven on D Street and Coast Highway 101, called the sheriff’s department after encountering a disruptive customer who refused to leave the store. “He was drunk,” said Virk. “We don’t serve alcohol to people like that. That guy was screaming at everybody that walked by. He’s representing my business in the worst possible way,” he said. Virk said the sheriff’s department is communicating daily with him, as part of the summer patrol program. “It’s working,” he said. Virk said that in the past when there was an issue with a customer and the police were called, the customer would already be gone or hiding by the time authorities arrived. “Now the response time is better and they actually park and patrol the lots,” he said. “They’re patrolling and walking the alleys, which have historically been a problem for us.” Captain Sherri Sarro said in a release that the summer campaign was not expected to generate overtime hours its for deputies.

RANCHO SANTA FE NEWS

JULY 1, 2011 care not to absentmindedly jump into new involvements without first considering all the ramifications. Operating in haste is a surefire way to trip over your own feet. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- It's one of those days when you can operate with greater efficacy if you're able to perform your tasks at arm's length from others. Even some well-intentioned people can be disruptive. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- All that negative thoughts will do is put a cloud over your mind and entice you to quit at the first sign of trouble instead of getting tough and asserting yourself. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Guard against inclinations to change things that are presently running smoothly. All your well-meaning adjustments are likely to do is penalize you for your efforts. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- In order to reach an agreement, it might be up to you to make a sensible concession, but do so only if your counterpart will reciprocate. Hopefully he or she will act on your cues. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Beware of a disgruntled co-worker trying to involve you in a problem she or he created in order to take some of the blame off him or herself. Don't let this person get away with it. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- A companion might have something that could turn out to be a good deal, but not necessarily in the form it's being presented. Be sure to check it out first before agreeing to go along with it.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Only if you have the necessary stick-to-itiveness to work things out can you achieve the success you're looking for. However, you might first have to experience a test of wills in order to be a victor. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You could do yourself a grave disfavor by putting more stock in the opinions of others than you do in your own thinking. It's not necessary to penalize yourself in order to get along with colleagues. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It might be safer to refuse someone who wants to borrow something that you consider precious.You could be risking ever seeing it again. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- You aren't likely to escape experiencing some frustrations at this juncture. By keeping a cool head as well as your humor intact, you can achieve your objectives and minimize the negatives. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Do what you can to be helpful to others, but not to the point of allowing them to overload you with their chores and burdens. Let them fend for themselves.

Fernando Solana, 16, and Sandra Salgado, 14, had been dating, according to police, adding that there is no evidence either victim was associated with a gang. The teens were found at Calle Montecito Street, about 10:30 p.m. in May, at the northeast area of the park after police responded to calls of possible gunshots. The investigation into their deaths is still ongoing, and any motive for the killings remains unknown.

the age of 15, and going on to dance the soloist part of Americana ballet,“Rodeo,” a role de Mille made famous in 1942. “I had never been happier than dancing her steps in that ballet,” she remembers. “I’d like to think of her as a guide to help me create my full-length ballet of ‘Little Women.’” As a young up-and-coming dancer, Delgado said she was nourished by worldly exposure and opportunity. “That is why we are creating Global Masterclass,” she said. “As a professional ballet dancer and teacher, one is in the wild current of success and failure at times, but courage and self-respect must always prevail. This is what we must teach the children, the next generation. This lesson pertains to all of life, not just ballet.” For more information, or to schedule an audition for “Little Women,” call (760) 571-7555 or e-mail globalmasterclass@yahoo.com.

until filled by the Democratic governor. “The timeline is dictated by the quality of the applicants and a thorough screening,” Westrup said. “Our goal is to ensure the best possible people are filling those vacancies.” “Will I miss it?” Nussbaum asked. “Unbelievably. It’s been an honor and a privilege to serve the fairgrounds.” Growing up in San

that’s too powerful for its space will cool quickly without removing enough humidity. — Check the airflow. Most units are better at directing air to the left or right. Determine which way the air will blow (facing the unit) from where the air conditioner is mounted. — Look for convenient controls.

Diego, Nussbaum said he attended the fair every summer. “My goal was to have a job at the fairgrounds,” he said. “I was thrilled beyond words when I was appointed. Every time I stepped foot there it’s been a thrill. I feel blessed.” Nussbaum said after the news broke he received several phone calls from people asking him to submit an application. “This probably sounds pathetic, but I plan to reapply,” he said. He said none of the phone calls have been from

members of the Del Mar City Council. “The line must have been busy when they were trying to call,” he joked. In a deal made with the previous administration, Del Mar is proposing to buy the state-owned facility for $120 million. A bill authorizing the sale has been put on hold until next year. The 400-acre site makes up 20 percent of Del Mar, which is seeking ownership to ensure local control and reimbursement for public services it provides. The fair board claims city ownership will

bankrupt the fairgrounds. During his tenure, Nussbaum said he helped the facility become accessible to more people and events by replacing aging barns with multipurpose facilities and installing a roof over the horse arena. He was also a key player in developing an expansion plan that includes increased parking, new administration offices and exhibit halls with rooftop sports fields and a permanent train platform. The board certified the environmental impact report for

that project in April despite opposition from Del Mar, adjacent Solana Beach and myriad area residents and organizations. Del Mar, Solana Beach and the San Dieguito River Valley Joint Powers Authority have taken legal steps to challenge the EIR. Adam Day will replace Nussbaum as president. The board can still function because only six members are required for a quorum, but in four of the last five meetings, at least two board members have been absent.

instead of vague settings labeled “cold” and “coldest.” — Cash in on energy savings. The 14 Recommended models all meet federal Energy Star standards and typically usually have an energy-saver mode.

could spoil your expectations, not to mention the food in your fridge. Here’s what you need to know to shop wisely: — Freshness claims are on the rise. Viking promises its Plasmacluster Ion Air Purifier “eliminates airborne bacteria and mold spores, removes odors, and enhances food preservation.” Such freshness claims are hard to measure. But the best refrigerators maintain a consistent temperature of 37 degrees F in the main compartment, 32

degrees F in the meat compartment, and 0 degrees F in the freezer. — Efficiency moves past Energy Star. Saving energy is another selling point; some refrigerators exceed federal efficiency standards by 30 percent. Energy Star-qualified models must be at least 20 percent more efficient.The newly tested Whirlpool Gold GB2FHDXW, $1,200, is part of the 30 percent club, and its excellent efficiency helped make it CR’s top-rated bottom-freezer. The Frigidaire

Gallery FGUB2642L, $1,600, also delivers top energy savings in a French-door model. — Four-doors aren’t just for cars. Four-door refrigerators resemble popular Frenchdoor models but have an extra drawer between the double-door refrigerator and single-drawer bottom freezer. They are among the fastestgrowing configurations. The Samsung RF4287HA, $2,600, has the highest overall score, thanks to its excellent temperature performance and quiet operation.

Rating refrigerators

CR tested more than 150 refrigerators, so you’d think they would all start looking the same. But testers found big differences in performance, style, and efficiency, including many models that
