Nestled in the foothills of the Cuyamaca Mountains of San Diego County, Alpine is a historic mountain community dating back to the early settlers of Southern California. Since the pioneer days, Alpine has drawn many to enjoy scenic vistas, fresh air, and pleasant climate. Visitors

often remark on the preservation of Alpine's small town charm despite the proximity to a bustling metropolitan region. We agree: Alpine is a jewel of quiet country living less than half an hour from Downtown San Diego.

GETTING TO ALPINE Conveniently located adjacent to Interstate 8, Alpine is less than half an hour from the coast and Downtown San Diego by car. Visitors can access the heart of Alpine from both Exit 30 (Tavern Rd) and Exit 33 (Willows Rd/Alpine Bl) on I-8.

Public transit service is available on the MTS 838 and 888 bus routes. Visit sdmts. com for complete schedules and a list of stops. Area casinos offer limited shuttle service from points in Coastal San Diego. Check their websites for full details.

Considered top shelf in fine dining by many, The Grove is the ideal venue for your next special occasion or formal night-out. Upon arrival, guests are encouraged to relax and let themselves be pampered by world-class service. The most difficult decision of the diner's night may be choosing among the diverse and tantalizing appetizers. From their famous signature seafood tower (prawns, jumbo shrimp, seasonal oysters, crab legs, and lobster claws) to lamb chops served with polenta “tots”, The Grove has exciting dishes for every course. The Grove only serves hand-selected USDA Prime and AA Wagyu beef, perfectly aged a minimum of 21 days. Sourced from the finest ranches in the Midwest, their USDA Prime Steaks are the top 2% in quality of all beef produced in the U.S. Feeling adventurous? Try the grilled bison steak served with sautéed carrots, sweet potato mash, mushrooms, cherry chutney, and rapini. The vegetarian options are inspired and unforgettable. The watermelon salad with watercress, feta, Mandarin orange segments, shallots, and a balsamic ginger dressing will have your taste buds dancing. For an entrée, the toasted quinoa & acorn squash is served with house-made chermoula, an herb-and-lemon-based marinade and relish used in North African cooking. After your luscious meal, the dessert menu will tempt you to splurge. Fresh desserts are made daily and the menu changes often. If you're lucky try the layered chocolate cake. With so many different types of choloate in one bite, you'll think you've gone to heaven. The attention to detail and gourmet selections will make your dining experience at The Grove a pleasure long remembered. Indulge in an exciting menu sure to satisfy and inspire you to return again and again. ◊

HEROES AND HORSES An Alpine couple has created a special place for our nation's heroes to begin their journey of healing. Faced with mental and physical health problems associated with serving on the front lines, Saddles In Service offers an innovative way for those who have served our nation and communities to heal.

Founded by Mike and Tammy Oluvic in 2017, the dream of Saddles In Service became a reality when Mike retired from the United States Navy in 2016. After relocating to Storm Son's Ranch in Alpine, Tammy learned about a group of horses that had been rescued and in need of forever homes. Two days later, Storm Son's Ranch had their first two rescue horses. Today, the ranch is home to thirteen amazing horses, each with a unique story. The Saddles In Service program offers Active Duty Military, Veterans, Firefighters, Law Enforcement, and First Responders the unique opportunity to explore their own healing alongside a rescue horse. Their program is absolutely free to Heroes and their families, and it is tailored to fit the

specific physical and emotional needs of each Hero they serve. Saddles In Service carefully pairs Hero and horse and assists the pair in building their relationship through grooming, groundwork, and riding. "These majestic animals are mirrors to our souls. They bring out how I am feeling. I started out a nervous wreck. But as time and patience has taught me, everyone, including and especially the horses, bring positive reinforcement to this vet," said Army Veteran, Kyle Green. While working with their horses, Heroes learn the importance of being aware and begin to work on controlling their emotions. Throughout the program, Heroes regain confidence, learn patience, and rediscover themselves. â—Š Saddles In Service P.O. Box 692 Descanso, CA 91916 (619) 566-6208 saddlesinservice.org

Let’s hear it for the red, white, and blue! Alpine lets the colors of the flag fly in the annual 4th of July Parade and Festival! The parade has been revived from the Crown Hills 4th of July parade by the Kiwanis Club of Alpine, assisted by the Alpine Chamber of Commerce and Alpine Community Center. Now the annual parade happily rolls down Alpine Boulevard, harking back to the great days of old when towns celebrated our national holiday together!

Alpine’s Honorary Mayor, Linda Cioffi is this year’s Grand Marshall. Cioffi, owner of Alpine View Lodge, a residential living facility specializing in dementia and Alzheimer’s care for the elderly, is also a hardworking

fundraiser for her cause, Quest for the Cure. Cioffi’s most fervent goal in life is to see the end of Alzheimer’s disease

and dementia. She says, “I am a cancer survivor, and in my lifetime, I want to shake the hand of the person who has

ADE & FESTIVAL beaten Alzheimer’s disease.” Quest for the Cure has been going strong for four years and has successfully raised

over $100,000. Each year their goal grows to a higher level, and each year they surpass their goal. In October, the main fundraising event will be an Oktoberfest held at the Alpine Community Center. Watch for Honorary Mayor Cioffi to roll by in the Grand Marshall vehicle! The parade steps off on July 4, 2019 at 10 a.m. at the corner of W. Victoria Drive, and Alpine Boulevard. When the Alpine Church bell rings, the floats will process, showing their spirit for the red, white, and blue as they head west to the Alpine Community Center Park where the festival will be underway! The Kiwanis Cook Shack will be offering hot dogs and hamburgers, and cold drinks! The Salvation Army will have popcorn, cotton candy and snow cones. Children are invited to participate in the dunk tank and game booths. There will be music and entertainment inside the Alpine Community Center, including a magician that will surprise and amaze. ◊

ALPINE GARDEN & GIFTS An interview with Kathy Matranga, co-owner of Alpine Garden & Gifts and A Cut Above Florist

Entrepreneurs Kathy & Mario Matranga know talent when they see it. As the former longtime owners of the popular bar and live music venue, Patrick’s II in San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter, the Matrangas have traded in booking musicians to hosting artisans. The Chamber recently sat down with Kathy Matranga to learn more about their business, Alpine Garden & Gifts. When did you open Alpine Garden & Gifts, and what inspired you? Matranga: Alpine Garden and Gifts was opened in November 2013. We retired from the nightlife business and sought out a quieter life here in beautiful Alpine. I have been a florist for most of my life, so the transition to a plant nursery was very easy. I also ran another local gift shop, so I had experience selling antiques and gift items. A few years before launching Alpine Garden & Gifts, I established A Cut Above Florist, specializing in a variety of services. That side of the business continues to thrive and blending a florist into our nursery has been a natural fit. Besides all of the wonderful things you’ll find at Alpine Garden & Gifts, we offer wedding consultations, holiday home decorating, and personalized custom flower arrangements.

What is your favorite part about running your business? Matranga: Mario and I love the variety and freedom of running our own business. One day we are behind the counter taking care of nice people and the next, we are picking out plants or hitting estate sales. Every day is an adventure! What is something people may not know about your business? Matranga: We like to tap into the creative talents of the local people. Whether they are making jewelry, building furniture or re-purposing vintage items, we like to give them a venue to sell their wares. Our monthly ‘Vintage Markets’ are a good opportunity to see what this mountain community has to offer. The market is held one Sunday a month and features 10-15 additional vendors, live music, and a café cart with coffee, pastries, and treats. Also, every year we import fresh cut Christmas trees from an exclusive farm in Oregon. These trees are gorgeous and incredibly popular in the community! We always run out! Do you have any advice for home/garden enthusiasts? Matranga: Growing a garden can take a bit of a commitment but it is well worth it. Surrounding yourself with the beauty of plants and flowers is a very healthy, relaxing hobby. Start slow, learn and enjoy! ◊ Alpine Garden & Gifts 2442 Alpine Boulevard Alpine, CA 91901 (619) 452-3535 alpinegardenandgifts.com

THE PATRON OF ALPINE Get to know Benjamin Arnold, Alpine's historic benefactor and driving force behind many of our beloved landmarks. Written by Carol Walker, Alpine Historical Society Almost everyone in Alpine has heard about Benjamin Arnold—a leading figure in the development of our community in the late nineteenth century. Arnold Way was named in his honor.

Ryan DePrizio, Realtor® www.ryansellssandiego.com (619) 417-4359 | P.O. Box 2649, Alpine, CA 91903

Mr. Arnold was described as having a strong character, yet he was gentle in manner and very approachable. He was born in Kent County, Rhode Island on September 22, 1822. He was engaged in the East African Trade with his brother and uncle and dealt in ivory and spices. Already a very wealthy man, he and his wife, Harriett, moved to this area to help relieve his asthma and began acquiring land. During the great land boom of 1887-1888 he bought several lots, known as the Horton Addition, in downtown San Diego and built a mansion on the corner of 5th and Juniper Streets. In 1889, the Arnolds visited Alpine, liked it and soon purchased property in the center of the settlement. He built a large home named Los Robles (pictured below) and from then on he and his wife divided their time between Alpine and their home in San Diego. His Alpine Hotel was built in 1890. His home and hotel were both destroyed by fire.

I am a full service Realtor with extensive experience in real estate and the building industry. I am a hard working, hands-on Realtor® that can negotiate the best deal whether you’re buying or selling.

Mr. Arnold was responsible for the building of several significant public buildings in Alpine. The Alpine Center School was built in 1890 and the Parsonage in 1893. Land for the Alpine Cemetery on Victoria Drive was donated in 1899. Also in 1899, he advanced half the cost to build a Town Hall. Alpine’s first corporation, The Hall Company, Inc., was formed with $600.00 in shares sold to stockholders. The Town Hall became the village’s social and political center. The Town Hall and the Parsonage still stand today—a constant reminder of the significant contributions Mr. Arnold made to the Alpine community. The Town Hall is now the Alpine Woman’s Club building and the Parsonage is Kasitz Kastle Retirement Home. In addition to buildings, Mr. Arnold made significant improvements to the “terrible road” from Lakeside to El Cajon and took over the stage line and added more horses, better equipment and additional stops. Benjamin Rice Arnold died on August 24, 1899 at his home in San Diego of heart failure. He was buried at Mt. Hope Cemetery in San Diego. Mrs. Arnold died on June 11, 1902 in Rhode Island. That same year, Mr. Arnold’s remains were moved to Swan Cemetery in Rhode Island where he was buried next to his wife. “That he was loved by the people of the mountain settlement he had adopted is accepted, and that he loved them and their village can be assumed by what he did while here.” …quoted from Alpine, History of a Mountain Settlement, by Beatrice LaForce. ◊
