REGION — Children scampered into the Carlsbad headquarters of Extraordinary Conceptions, an international surrogate and egg donor agency, to sit on Santa’s lap and rattle off their Christmas gift wish list. Some lists were long and others quite short. While the children kept Santa busy, the afternoon also painted a day brimful of giving back to the local Vista nonprofit, Solutions for Change. Solutions for Change help homeless families by placing them in a shelter and then ultimate-
transitional housing. It’s dedicated to find a myriad of solutions to combat homelessness through education and awareness. The Dec. 16 debut event marked a day of hope for the holidays. The collection box for Solutions for Change overflowed with blankets, children’s pajamas, clothing, and toys for boys and girls of all ages. “I am just overjoyed,” said Stephanie Barry, a volunteer at Solutions for Change.

Palomar Health board welcomes three new members By Ellen Wright
ESCONDIDO — The Palomar Health Board of Directors has three new members after voters elected Hans Christian Sison, Ray McCune and Dara Czerwonka on Nov. 4. Jerry Kaufman was re-elected to his position. The board of directors develops and fulfills Palomar Health’s mission and vision statement for the district, which is the largest public health district in the state. The board is responsible for oversight, implantation of policies and monitoring the organization’s performance of strategic direction. Members also review and approve financial policies. The members were sworn in at the district’s December meeting. Current member Linda Greer was sworn in as chair, Jeff Griffith was sworn in as vice- chair, new member Czerwonka was named secretary and Kaufman was sworn in as treasurer. Aeron Wickes also serves as a director on the board. Ted Kleiter, Stephen Yerxa and Bruce Krider will be leaving the board. “Palomar Health is fortunate

Krider lived in the district for 25 years and served on the board for almost half that time, 12 years. He was instrumental in the passing of Proposition BB, which approved the development of the new Palomar Medical Center. He leaves his post as chair of the board. The longest serving board member, Klierter, has been on the board since 1996. “Ted Kleiter’s selfless commitment and service to Palomar Health over the past 50 years has been remarkable,” said Hemker. “With his leadership, Palomar Health has achieved many accomplishments that have helped shape the healthcare district. Palomar Health would not be where it is today without the hard work and dedication of Mr. Kleiter.” The district serves over 500,000 residents, with facilities in Escondido, Rancho Penasquitos, San Elijo Hills, Poway and Temecula.

Corpsmen Memorial can now withstand test of time By Tony Cagala
CAMP PENDLETON — The bond between Navy corpsmen and Marines is said to be unbreakable by those that know. Countless Marine lives have been saved by the efforts of those corpsmen, who on hearing the words, “Corpsman up,” unflinchingly run into the heat of battle to rescue a fallen or wounded Marine. The late Raul Avina, a World War II veteran knew too well that bond. While serving on Iwo Jima, Avina witnessed the selflessness of corpsmen rushing onto the battlegrounds to treat the injured. That memory had stayed with him well beyond his years serving as a Marine. More than 30 years ago, Avina began creating a memorial of what he’d witnessed at Iwo Jima in the garage of his Oceanside home. What he created — a depiction of three Navy corpsmen lowering a wounded Marine from Mount Suribachi on the island of Iwo Jima — would eventually be dedicated and installed at the old Naval hospital on Camp Pendleton. With the completion of the new hospital last year, officials had initially wanted to move the memorial to the new location. Yet, because of time and decay the original
couldn’t be moved as it was. And now, because the original memorial has been preserved and modernized to last, no one will ever need to worry about the longevity of the memorial again, said Richard Heim, president and CEO of Clark Construction Group, the company that worked to update the memorial. At 17-feet tall, the restored Corpsmen Memorial, as it’s become known, was rededicated at Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton earlier this month. “It’s an incredible, heartfelt feeling that the venture went forward without any encouragement…to recreate the statue the way it was,” said Daniel Avina, one of Raul’s sons. Daniel had watched his father build the memorial in his garage. His family would always ask Raul, “Why are you doing this? Why are you trying to destroy the house?” He made it piece by piece in their garage, Daniel said. “It was heavy. The joists were caving in…it was pretty amazing,” he said. “He was so compelled to do it and to complete it,” he added. “This project looms big, in terms of how memorable and how emotional it was to the joint venture,” Heim said. “I would hope Raul is looking down today and is

smiling upon the effort that we all did — and it was an effort of love — to bring this memorial back to life with prosperity,” Heim said during the dedication ceremony. Avina passed away in 2003. Ray Ramirez, Avina’s nephew said he also saw the construction of the original memorial. “It’s a little different,”
Ramirez said of the new memorial. “The scale, the military men were much smaller in comparison to the mountain. I have no idea how he made it. It must have been a massive undertaking. “But he was not only a sculptor, but a painter. Artistry runs through his family,” Ramirez added. “The individual who crafted this thing was a
Marine. What are Marines known for? We scrounge,” said Lt. Gen. David Berger, commanding general of 1st Marine Expeditionary Force. “He built this thing in his garage, I’m figuring there’s some supply officer somewhere who’s missing a whole bunch of stuff,” Berger said. “Corpsmen are our ‘docs.’ If you’ve ever served
in a Marine unit, that’s what we called them — we just called them ‘docs’…it’s a term of endearment for us. For us, it means you’re a part of our brotherhood,” Berger said. The phrase “Corpsman up,” means a lot to Marines. The corpsmen don’t wait for cover — they just get up and run toward the wounded. “It’s remarkable for us as Marines to watch. Even under fire, they don’t hear the fire. They just get up and run,” Berger said. Speaking to the honors that corpsmen have received over the years, Deputy Surgeon General Rear Adm. C. Forrest Faison III, ran off several numbers: 22 corpsmen receiving the Medal of Honor, 178 received Navy Crosses, 30 received Distinguished Service Medals, 956 received the Silver Star, and 17 U.S. Navy ships have been named in honor of corpsmen. In the current conflict 48 corpsmen have made the ultimate sacrifice to save and care for the Marines they love, Faison said. In addition to the names of those that received awards or have their names on a wall, for every one of them, there’s 20 corpsmen. “And nobody will ever know their names except for those of us who served along side of them,” Berger said.
10,000 people are waiting in line for a cup of coffee --Found something good at Costco
You’ve heard about the electrolyte-rich benefits of coconut water, and the dense nutrients and multiple health benefits of coconut oil. But what about coconut coffee, tea, and cocoa? Southern California’s CACafe makes these delicious antioxidant-rich beverages with premium coconut oil, coconut milk, Arabica coffee, green tea, and cocoa. Both health affirming and tasty, CACafe Coconut Coffee & Tea can help with weight control, digestive and heart health, and can improve the body’s immune system. Coconut also scavenges free radicals that prematurely age skin, regenerating and stimulating collagen production. Combined with the antioxidants in coffee, tea, and cocoa themselves, with no artificial flavors or preservatives, CACafe beverages are designed to do more than just taste great. According to Colorado’s non-profit Coconut Research Center, coconut is low alkaline, rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals such as potassium and manganese. Cancer survivor Lisa Richmond attests “I began drinking coconut tea in 2004...as a beauty aid. In 2006, I was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of breast cancer...(but) to everyone’s surprise, my cancerous cells had not metastasized.” Richmond credits CACafe coconut tea with “keeping me strong,
before, during, and after my cancer experience. I remain cancer-free and CACafe coconut tea plays a major role in my life.” In fact, A.P. John Cancer Institute for Cancer Research has recommended the addition of coconut oils to the diet to reduce free radicals and cancer risk. For weight loss, too, CACafe can’t be beat. User Malia Owen lost 12.5 pounds in just three and a half weeks. “I felt an incredible energy boost after the coconut coffee, and also less hungry.” Owen says she’s experienced less eating and snacking overall since enjoying the beverage daily. Coconut boosts metabolism and improves thyroid function. Unlike many foods which contain primarily long-chain fatty acids, coconut contains medium-chain fatty acids quickly burned up by the body, leading to weight loss and significantly lower incidence of heart disease and obesity. Residents of the Philippines, India, and the Pacific Islands who consume high amounts of coconut coffee and tea in their diets have far fewer cases of heart disease and obesity than those in countries that don't. So you know they’re healthy, but how do CACafe products taste? The short answer is amazing. Sweet and rich, it’s unnecessary to add creamer or milk.
Delightful, good for you, and tasty - something everyone in the family can enjoy. And CACafe not only does right by you - the company donates resources from every product sold to fight world hunger and support sustainable coconut crop development worldwide. Actor Dustin Hoffman once said “The two basic items necessary to sustain life are sunshine and coconut milk.” Maybe he was onto something. Made with real coconut, premium coffee, cocoa, and green tea, CACafe's patented products were created to deliciously improve your body’s defenses, heart and digestive health, as well as assisting with weight control. The coconut coffee is available at Costco San Marcos (725 center drive, san marcos, CA 92069), Costco Carlsbad (951 palomar airport rd, carlsbad, CA 92009), and Costco Lake Elsinore (29315 central ave, lake elsinore, CA 92532).

2015 — Deciding between good and best for the year ahead By Glenn Mollette
PUC chief departs, but bad decisions live on California Focus By Thomas D. Elias After 12 years of favoring big utility companies over individual consumers, Michael Peevey has at last left the California Public Utilities Commission. But many of his ill considered, some say corrupt, decisions will linger on. Peevey departed in a carefully stage-managed mid-December commission meeting, forced by scandal to abandon previous plans to seek reappointment by Gov. Jerry Brown for another six-year term. Just how problematic was the Peevey reign (in many ways, he really did rule over the commission like some kind of potentate)? The scandal that finished his tenure involved buddy-buddy email, in-person and voice exchanges with executives of big companies he regulated, especially Pacific Gas & Electric Co. The notes contained assurances PG&E would do just fine in whatever proceeding was current at the moment that its solid profits would not be cut. So when the commission last fall fined PG&E for its conduct after the 2010 San Bruno natural gas pipeline explosion that killed eight persons and destroyed 38 homes, Peevey could not vote. But his influence was clearly felt when remaining commissioners levied a paltry $1 million fine, a pittance for PG&E, less than most of the blown-up homes were worth. In the same session, Peevey took part in the unanimous vote to approve a settlement awarding Southern California Edison more than three billion consumer dollars over 10 years to pay for its colossal error that caused the premature retirement of the San Onofre Nuclear Gener-
ating Station. Also voting for the settlement was Michael Picker, later named by Brown as commission president. Emails have shown that Edison executives knew beforehand that steam generators they installed at SONGS were fatally flawed. When executive misdeeds are so egregious, why should customers pay anything? Why not force the company to foot the entire bill for its irresponsibility? One reason might be that Peevey is a former president of that company. Another might be that the administrative law judge presiding over that case spoke privately with an Edison executive before recommending the settlement. That’s the very definition of judicial misconduct. All this is in keeping with the revolving door that’s been allowed by governors from Brown (in his first two terms) to Gray Davis (who first made Peevey the PUC president) to Arnold Schwarzenegger (who reappointed him). The revolving door goes the other way, too: an early Brown choice as PUC president was John Bryson, later Edison’s chief executive for decades. Was that plush job a reward for previous favors? The PUC has never addressed any of these questions, and a former San Diego city attorney is now suing to get the SONGS settlement reversed. Other lousy Peevey decisions also live on. There’s the state’s big emphasis on solar thermal energy rather than rooftop solar, which assures not only high costs for gigantic, inefficient solar arrays in desert locales, but also guarantees 20 years of high utility company profit margins on the costs for power lines needed to bring the solar power to its eventual users. One such develop-
ment, being built by Spain’s Abengoa S.A. near Boron in the Mojave Desert to supply PG&E customers, will be so expensive the PUC has not yet dared reveal its actual price. When the cost is revealed, it will be too late for consumers to do anything. Another is a “peaker” power plant in San Diego which local consumer advocates insist is completely unneeded. Voted down the first time the PUC considered it, this project was later approved after some Peevey bullying. Meanwhile, Californians can be glad another Peevey move was frustrated. That was his attempt to abandon much of the state’s reserved space on pipelines bringing natural gas from Texas, Oklahoma, Wyoming and Colorado and instead import liquefied natural gas (LNG) from Indonesia and Australia. This would have left California without any of the price benefits of the recent gas production boom that dropped prices radically in the last year. Peevey was thwarted when the state Lands Commission refused to allow an LNG importing plant offshore near Oxnard in Ventura County. The way Peevey left drew more attention and heat than the commission has seen in the last half century. Consumers can hope the spotlight stays on and pressures successor Picker and his colleagues into a new sense of fairness. Email Thomas Elias at firstname.lastname@example.org.

2015 will be over almost quicker than you can say Happy New Year! Just look how fast 2014 sped by us all. Time rarely feels as if it’s standing still unless we are waiting on something to happen. Time only drags when we need something to happen like a cure for a disease, a job to open or a relative to come home from the Middle East. When time drags we make the mistake of wishing it away. We only have a little bit of time. We all have the same in a day, a week or a year. Every year that we live we are extended the same number of days and minutes. We do all kinds of things with time. We waste time, kill time, try to make up time, lose track of time or don’t pay attention to time. Regardless of how we treat time it’s only doing one thing moving swiftly through the hourglass one grain or second at a time. I’m thankful for time. I’m grateful for time with my wife and each family member. I’m grateful for this moment to sit here and peck a few words out on my keyboard. I suppose one of my problems is how do I fit all I want to do into my time. I guess I enjoy doing too much. If I only enjoyed doing one or two things then my time spent might be a little easier. Each day and moment I would simply devote my full attention to one particular aspect of life. Actually, that might not be a bad idea. But could I really do it? Could I devote 24 hours a day to my family? I could, but they really don’t want me in their hair 24/7. I could devote 24 hours a day to
prayer and reading the Bible or reading other good books. But then, I don’t want to be an isolated religious person who never enjoys this incredible world or people. I could devote 24 hours a day to the school I serve and do a lot of the work that many others do. However, institutions are stronger and better when the work is spread around to others. I could spend more time simply writing books, visiting family and friends and pursuing other hobbies I enjoy. Some how we have to determine what is best. I heard about this farmer who hired a man to sort potatoes. The man’s job was to put the bad potatoes in one pile, the good potatoes in another pile and the best potatoes in another pile. The man agreed to the job. At the end of the day the farmer came to see how his new employee was doing and he had not done anything. He was simply standing looking back and forth at two potatoes. The farmer bewildered asked? “Why haven’t you done what I asked you to do?” The hired man responded, “I just can’t decide between the good and the best potatoes.” Our dilemma in 2015 may not be in deciding between good and bad but between good and best. There are a lot of good things we can do with our time in 2015. Using our time to do the best things may be our toughest decision. Dr. Glenn Mollette is a syndicated American columnist and author.

Food truck focuses on serving seniors By Promise Yee
REGION — Outreach services are rolling up to where seniors gather. The Interfaith Community Services Senior Connections Program is housed in a food truck and making weekly stops at mobile home parks and churches in Vista and San Marcos to provide seniors with healthy lunches, social engagement and information on other support services the nonprofit offers. The Senior Connections Program aims to increase seniors’ food security and wellness, and help them build community. Dreams for Change runs the food truck as a partner to Interfaith Community Services. The goal is to provide 2,500 meals to 200 seniors during the Senior Connections program’s pilot year that began in November.
“There’s a full menu of healthy, hardy, fresh to order meals,” Greg Anglea, executive director of Interfaith Community Services, said. “It’s a nice draw. The food quality is very good.” Each week $2 lunches are served. Menu items include grilled chicken salad, chicken street tacos and Philly chicken steaks, served with a side of salad, soup or steamed veggies. After lunch Interfaith Community Services staff lead a fun, engaging activity. Last week line dancing got seniors up on their feet to socialize and exercise. Other activities include chair yoga and music and dance performances. Anglea said combining food, health and outreach services in one stop is beneficial to seniors, and connects them with services they might not have followed up on if of-
fered separately. He said the weekly stops help isolated seniors build relationships, and gain motivation to take better care of themselves, including recognizing and seeking treatment for acute illnesses earlier. Anglea added the weekly drive-up services at Vista Village Mobile Home Park and St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church in Vista, and El Dorado Mobile Home Park and San Marcos Lutheran Church in San Marcos are open to all seniors who show up. The Senior Connections Program is funded by a grant from the Rancho Santa Fe Foundation. Additional services offered by Interfaith Community Services include nutrition support, social services, housing, employment development and addiction recovery.
Alcohol and electronic cigarettes banned on Coaster By Ellen Wright
REGION— The days of drinking alcohol and smoking electronic cigarettes on the Coaster and Sprinter trains are numbered. The North County Transit District Board voted unanimously to ban alcohol and electronic cigarettes on all of the Coaster trains by Feb. 1, 2015 at their Dec. 18 meeting. The board, which is made up of local elected officials, said the goal of the Coaster is to provide transportation and alcohol consumption has proved to be too much of a nuisance. “We are in the transportation business. We are not in the entertainment business,” County Supervisor of San Diego Bill Horn said. Over the 20 years he’s been on the board, he said this is the fourth or fifth time alcohol has come up. “We have tried to make an allowance, we’ve tried to enforce but we just finally decided it’s time for us to shut this down,” Horn said. Underage drinking and loud and rowdy behavior were cited as the major problems with drinking. “It’s a small percentage of people that are actually breaking the rules that are affecting everybody,” Deputy Mayor of Vista John Aguilera said. He said the majority of the problems happen during events, like the Padres games. The board looked into the possibility of banning alcohol during those events, but according to Aguilera, that proved to be too “labor intensive and difficult to police.” “The unfortunate thing

is, it’s the Padres games that have done it to us and those are probably the people that need the beers for drowning their sorrows for the losses,” Aguilera joked. Of the about dozen public speakers, two were against the ban. More than 320 people wrote the board, according to NCTD Public Information Officer Katie Whichard and about 93 percent said they were against the ban of alcohol. Trudy Clark told the board in the seven years she had been riding the Coaster, she had never seen minors given alcohol or any rowdiness. Eric Collins, Director of the Alcohol Policy Panel of San Diego County, told the board he was in favor of the ban because, he believes, it will cut down on underage drinking and driving. “NCTD has a significant opportunity to conserve valuable law enforcement resources, save valuable taxpayer dollars
and most importantly save lives by reducing the risk of drunk driving collisions throughout San Diego County,” Collins said. The board also voted to treat electronic cigarettes like tobacco and banned them in all NCTD facilities. Critics of electronic smoking devices said that since the vapors emitted are odorless, there is no way of telling what someone is smoking. They also cited the side effects of second hand vapor smoke, which is still unknown. Some of the council members said they had a difficult time making the decision to ban alcohol, but ultimately, everyone except for Solana Beach Councilman Mike Nichols who was absent, voted to ban it. “I think being a good leader means that we need to make hard decisions and unfortunately it’s not always going to be popular but we have to do what’s best for the public safety of all our citizens,” Vice Mayor of San Marcos Rebecca Jones said. Spill proof containers, like travel mugs and coffee cups, are still allowed on the Coaster, as well as “light meals or snacks” which aren’t disruptive to other passengers. After Feb. 1, people with open alcoholic drinks on the train or in any station can face a fine of $75 for the first offense, and $250 for the second. Those caught using electronic cigarettes after the ban can face a fine of $250 and 48 hours of mandated community service.
Lake San Marcos resident helps patients navigate cancer Health Watch Brought to you by the staff & physicians of Scripps Hospital Lake San Marcos resident Bunny Nedry knows how to help people get the help they need. As a USO volunteer at San Diego International Airport, she gets new recruits to their posting. As a registered nurse and patient care navigator, oncology, at Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas, she helps cancer patients find the services they need to get through their disease.
does. How do you first meet with patients? I’m referred by physicians, nurses, social workers, and others. Usually I meet inpatients right before they go home. I also get referrals for outpatients from doctor’s offices. I just want them to know my help is available if they need it. Later, I follow up with them at home. Not everyone is ready at first to deal with these issues. But after a time, they often realize they could use the assistance. Some people are open to talking to me, others aren’t, and everyone has different issues. An elderly patient will be different from a woman with children who will be different from a single man. Sometimes, people don’t even know what to ask for. They’re not aware of the resources offered by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society or the American Cancer Society. I help them find reputable services on the internet and in the community. They’re very appreciative. Just knowing there’s someone out there they can call with their questions is helpful.
What does a cancer navigator do? We’re here to help patients during their journey. At Scripps Encinitas, I meet patients who have been newly diagnosed, have a history of cancer or are experiencing side effects. My job is to find out their needs and help them get those met. Everybody’s different. Some patients need a support group or help with their children. Others have to sort out financial or legal issues. I help point them in the right direction, referring them to social workers, the finance department, outside agencies. I may not always How do you help families? have the answers, but I Cancer affects the encan find someone who tire family. It’s important
to bring everyone into the process, if they’re open to it. I find friends and family members are especially appreciative because they don’t know what to do for the patient. I can refer family members to a caregivers support group. That can help them learn how to care for their loved one or how to talk to them, or their kids, about the disease. There are also good resources for children with a parent affected by cancer. What do you most enjoy about your work? I really like helping people. I also facilitate a breast cancer support group. It’s for anyone in the community, not just patients at Scripps Encinitas. Women at different parts of their journeys meet up and share experiences. It helps to talk to someone who is going through the same thing you are. I also help organize an annual cancer survivors day celebration. We had 90 people at the most recent one. That’s a really good day. “Health Watch” is brought to you by the physicians and staff of Scripps Health. For more information or for a physician referral, call 1-800-SCRIPPS or visit scripps.org.

As we noted in an earlier TASTE OF WINE, the price point for a bottle of wine and a night at a favorite restaurant rose per consumer. Many more household wine names were doing road shows at restaurants and wine events. The French wines continued their slide, especially in the U.S. and China, which bought 72 percent less French vineyard property than 2013, according to a recent Wall St. Journal article. Chinese wine imports from Chile, the U.S. and Italy are rising. Wine Spectator’s top 100 wines in the world had 19 from the U.S., 19 from Italy and 14 from France.

Great healthy habits

living and a recent conversation with him highlights some of his advice on this topic.
s we all know, New Year’s resolutions rarely stick. Research shows only about 8 percent of people actually incorporate their resolutions into their daily life past a few weeks. The average fitness New Year’s resolution is surprisingly kept for a whopping eight days, that’s why you will see packed gyms for the next week or so then it revert back to the folks that have made fitness a part of their lives and not a resolution. That said, a new year is a great time to reflect on and make realistic changes in our lives that can make a difference. I wanted to consult an expert on this so I contacted good friend Drew Matthews from the fabulous Annel & Drew’s Kitchen is also a Health Coach and of the same mind set that goals must be kept realistic and allow room for the occasional indulgence. Drew walks the talk when it comes to balanced, healthy
You have had tremendous success with Annel & Drew’s Kitchen at local
farmers markets over the past few years. In addition to that, you have branched out into a nutritional consulting capacity, how did that come about? Through our work with AD kitchen over the years we have found ourselves continuously building deeper relationships not only
with the community, growers and producers but also with food sources and it’s amazing how food and lifestyle can be a perfect recipe for excellent health. We have personally overcome certain health challenges by eating more whole foods and slowing down our lives to get more in touch with ourselves. This is important as working in the food business can be long hours. We now make more of an effort to strive for balance in our lives. After healing ourselves, I was inspired to help others find a similar path. I decided to become a Health Coach and went the Institute for Integrative

The next millenium is only 985 years away small talk jean gillette
REI offers a nine-day summer hiking trip in Iceland for about $5,000 per person (plus air transportation). Hikers explore lava fields, geysers, glaciers, iceberg-filled lakes and volcanoes. Photo courtesy REI
Planning your next trip? Consider these options hit the road e’louise ondash As a travel writer, I receive all sorts of emails and press releases from people who want my attention (and that of all travel writers; I’m not special). I hear often from the public relations and marketing folks who represent convention and visitors bureaus; national parks; hotels and spas; tour companies; travel agencies; cruise companies and more. Sometimes the information they offer is worth passing along; sometimes it isn’t. And sometimes their messages are the stuff that dreams are made of. But a girl can dream, can’t she? Consider these offerings: The Wonders of the World by Private Jet Tour, offered by Abercrombie & Kent. It combines several “singular destinations into one extraordinary globe-spanning journey.” And you’ll have plenty of
time to plan because the plane doesn’t take off until Sept. 17, 2015. Between then and Oct. 10, 50 passengers will be flown to the ancient Inca city of Machu Picchu in Peru (finish the trip to the top — 8,000 feet — via train); Easter Island in the Southeast Pacific; the Sydney Opera House (attend a private performance); the world’s largest religious monument, Angkor Wat, in Cambodia; India’s white-marble Taj Mahal; and Istanbul, Morocco and Marrakech. No dueling the other passengers for precious reclining space, either. Your private chartered jet features “fully lie-flat seats” equipped with personal massage systems, four-way adjustable headrests and lumbar supports. All this and more for $108,000 per person, double occupancy. If this seems a bit pricey, you have another option: a round-the-world cruise on one of Silversea’s boutique ships (as small as 100 passengers) for slightly more than half of the jet tour $58,950 per person. The 115-day voyage visits 50 ports and 30 countries, and as luck would
have it, it departs from Los Angeles Jan. 5. Ports of call include the Marquesas Islands; Tahiti; Bora Bora; Sydney; Bali; Hong Kong; Ho Chi Minh City; Mombasa, Kenya; Dzaoudzi (on a tiny island north of Madagascar); St. Barts; and San Juan, Puerto Rico. The voyage ends in Fort Lauderdale. If this is still a tad outside your budget, consider a cruise aboard mega-yacht SeaDream I or II, which carries 112 passengers (95 crew) to destinations such as Athens, Dubrovnik, Istanbul and Malaga. Enjoy the owner’s suite for a 12-day voyage for a mere $13,500 per person, double occupancy. If a luxury safari is on your dream list and “money is no object” (it says so on their website), Extraordinary Journeys has “authentic experiences for discerning travelers” to East and Southern Africa. Prices do not appear on the site, either, because this agency designs custom tours. And as they say, if you have to ask, you can’t afford it. If you’re stumped for creative ways to see Africa, here are a few suggestions
(pick one or all!): • High-end camping with gourmet food and choice wines • Game viewing on horseback • Gorilla trekking • Elephant safari • Tracking large-animal migrations • Five-star eco-lodges that serve gourmet organic foods and include yoga, spa treatments and infinity pools • Travel by private plane; all-terrain vehicle; hot air balloon; elephant, camel or horse. Iceland is on my bucket list, so REI’s Iceland Hiking adventure for about $5,000 per person (air transportation not included) has me fantasizing. The nine-day trip (summer only) includes hiking and exploring lava fields; geysers; other-worldly rock formations; glaciers, lagoons; iceberg-filled lakes; volcanoes; and wildlife.

Say it with me now… Yikes! The next millennium is only 985 years away. The way most of us race through life with our hair on fire, that is coming up fast. So, are you ready for a new year? Have you even swept up all the pine needles and taken down all the lights yet? No, me either. Most of us are still cleaning out the refrigerator, coming down off our holiday sugar buzz, joined by the frightening amounts of cream and butter we consumed, surrounded by chocolate. I swore I was going to go to exercise class every day for a couple of weeks. I know you are as surprised as I am that this somehow didn’t happen. I have been trying to eat lots of salads for three days now, but the transition is tenuous and my clothes are still snug. I haven’t yet poured chocolate syrup on my romaine, but I finish my vegetables feeling momentarily virtuous, only to discover some leftover treat lying around begging to be consumed. Once that package of corn chips has been opened, well, you know it won’t keep. Same goes for the champagne, the Brie and that leftover mashed potatoes and gravy. It’s a slippery slope but a tasty one. The no-nos have to run out eventually, but when the house becomes goodie-free, things could get ugly. I’m getting ready now
to address the withdrawal with artificially sweetened tea, fresh pears and perhaps some Greek yogurt. I have solemnly sworn to return to the “If I don’t have it on my kitchen shelves, I won’t think about eating it,” mode that reigns over the balance of my year. If I am going to button any of my winter pants, there may well be a threeday cleanse in my future. I really hope it doesn’t come to that. That sort of denial takes me into a realm of cranky that nobody wants to see. I think for perhaps another week, we can maintain, with a straight face, that we are keeping garbage out of our landfills by finishing up that leftover fudge and cheese platter. But by this time next week, no excuses will be accepted. That is, unless a friend offers you something delicious and you have to eat it just to be polite. Manners are so important.

‘Big tone’ signals growth of local musician By Tony Cagala
CARLSBAD — The faded, “greenish” colored Brixton fedora that sits atop Shane Hall’s head used to brown. The musician has grown accustomed to wearing a variety of headgear after having shaved his hair one day in his early 20s and saw that it wasn’t growing back. But it’s the fedora that most of his fans know him
by — that and what he calls his “thick” sounding music. “It’s a big tone,” he said before one of his Wednesday night gigs at Carlsbad’s RELM, where he regularly performs either solo or with his latest band From the Cold. That sound, he explained, comes from a long time of playing on his own. The versatile singer and mostly self-taught musician from Pennsylvania has been in and out of San Diego for the past 15 years, but has lately been working to establish his music here in the county’s Shane Hall describes the sound of his music as “thick,” a sound, he said, that comes from a long time playing on his own.

Invisible People captures the character that life on the streets has given homeless individuals in San Diego Photo by Carlos Richardson
Exhibition focuses awareness on San Diego’s homeless brush with art kay colvin
urrently on display at Oceanside Museum of Art, Neil Shigley: Invisible People compassionately brings to light members of San Diego’s homeless population. The exhibition focuses on large-scale block prints and graphite on paper works that spotlight the essence of those who endure life on our local streets. While giving insight into their hardships, Shigley’s portraits simultaneously reveal the nobility, strength, and humanity of these individuals. Regarding the general population’s reaction to this largely “invisible” group consisting of an estimated 2,400 individuals, Shigley says, "I think most people who encounter people in

They actively make them invisible.” The TURN TO BRUSH WITH ART ON 15 artist presents the portraits in extremely large format which, according to Shigley “forces people who are in a room with these images to confront this person and the situation they’re in, making them visible again.” It’s his intention to bring these “invisible people” out of the shadows with this commanding body of work. Shigley’s artwork has been exhibited throughout the U.S., including the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery in Washington D.C., while also prominently featured in the Martin Luther King Memorial Mural located on the Martin Luther King Freeway (Highway 94) in San Diego. Growing up the son of a military officer stationed in Europe, the Far East and several parts of the U.S., Shigley studied painting and printmaking at San Diego State University before graduating with honors

Spinal recovery center offers chance By Ellen Wright
CARLSBAD—A spinal cord recovery program, Project Walk, has just received certification to help patients with the ReWalk system — an FDA approved robotic exoskeleton that mimics walking for people with spinal cord injuries. “ReWalk was just amazing in creating something that was actually usable. We brought it into our program because we love what it can do for people, the idea of them standing up and talking to other people,” Leah Malkinson, communications specialist with Project Walk said. The exoskeleton allows users, who would other-
wise be confined to a wheel chair, to strap in and walk. The ReWalk has a battery life of about three and a half hours and tilt sensors, which sense which direction the user is leaning. Project Walk is a recovery gym that focuses on paralysis recovery through intense activity-based recovery. The company is headquartered in Carlsbad and has locations throughout the U.S. The trainers at the gym just underwent a three-day certification process in order to offer the ReWalk system to clients. Bruce Cook is a freestyle motocross rider and broke his spinal cord at
the T11 vertebrae in an accident on the Nitro Circus Tour about a year ago. He just started training to use the ReWalk system. In order to purchase it, users must practice with supervision for 40 hours. “If people want to purchase one, they have to go through the process of learning to walk in one before they can be issued one,” Malkinson said. The exoskeleton costs about $69,500 and was approved by the FDA for home use in July. “It’s cool mentally and physically to be back up on your feet. It helps with TURN TO WALKING ON 15

Odd Files CALENDAR By Chuck Shepherd Compelling Explanations Creative: Eric Opitz, 45, who was indicted on 13 counts of fraud in Philadelphia in October, had explained that the reason he needed human growth hormone (that he would resell) despite being 6-foot-3, 450 pounds, was that he was really a dwarf and feared he would recede if he stopped the medication. The New Normal An Oceanside, Calif. couple was surprised in November to discover that buying a purebred bichon frise on credit meant they were only leasing the dog for 27 months and would have to make a 28th payment to actually “own” Tresor. Furthermore, the lease, under a “repo” threat, required “daily exercise,” “regular bathing and grooming” and “immediate” disposal of Tresor’s “waste.” A spokesperson for the store, Oceanside Puppy (which works with four finance companies), told the San Diego UnionTribune that the arrangement is fairly standard now for expensive pets. Perspective Although elephants, rhesus monkeys, cobras, cows and water buffalos are regarded as sacred by many of India’s Hindus, the animals most certainly do not live idyllic lives, according to a November BBC News dispatch. As “growing populations are swallowing up habitat,” the divine symbols are forced to the cities, where they must dodge traffic, forage garbage for food, and endanger themselves encountering people less certain of their holiness (such as in the November report of the cobra harassing customers at an ATM in Delhi). As representatives of Lord Ganesha, elephants live well only during religious festivals, but otherwise must navigate asphalt and potholes that tear up their hooves. In another November incident, some Hindu leaders protested a drive to kill rats that had infested the Maharaja Yeshwantrao hospital in Indore — because Ganesha was depicted riding a mouse.

LCC wins in classic tourney Chargers home for the By Aaron Burgin
REGION — With La Costa Canyon forward Travis Fuller being taken to the hospital after being poked hard in his eye and the Mavericks in a dogfight against a game Santa Monica High team, fellow seniors Tommy McCarthy and Brady Twombly rose to the occasion. The duo combined for 68 points on opening night of the Under Armour Holiday Classic, thrilling the home crowd as the Mavs turned a close game into a blowout, winning 88-71 in National Division play. “With Travis getting hurt, we knew that it would take a team effort
to pull it out, Santa Monica is a tough team,” said the Harvard-bound McCarthy, who scored a game-high 35 points. “Everyone contributed to this win, it was a true team victory.” Tied at 38 at the half, McCarthy and Twombly exploded after halftime, each with a pair of personal 10-0 run that stretched the lead to a comfortable 13 points halfway through the third, and the Mavericks were cruised thereafter. Twombly, who has signed with Northern Arizona, scored 33 points and corralled 8 rebounds. Fuller, who will play college basketball at
Brown University, suffered a hyphema and a scratched cornea and will miss the rest of the tournament. LCC advanced to a quarterfinal date with The Patrick School, a perennial New Jersey power. Another local team, Torrey Pines, fell in its National Division game in front of a host crowd at Torrey Pines High School against Thomas Jefferson High School of New York by a final margin of 64-46. Several other local teams played games in the tournament’s four other divisions. Francis Parker fell 6150 to Lakewood Mayfair High School after Monsoon star point guard Kendall Small, who is signed to Oregon, proved too tough for the Lancers. Escondido, which led 41-35 at halftime, fell 7760 to Sonora High of La Habra. The Cougars, however, got solid efforts from its standout trio, senior Khy Kabellis and juniors Marcus Hentley and Keegan Cummins. In Senator’s Division play, Carlsbad Army and Navy Academy and El Camino were victorious in its openers. The Warriors defeated TURN TO LCC ON 15
playoffs with fade to the finish sports talk jay paris Maybe the Chargers went to Kansas City and got them a crazy little woman. What they didn’t snag was a win, and that my friend, drops the curtain on the season. “This team gave it all they’ve got for 60 minutes for the last 17 weeks,’’ coach Mike McCoy said. “I can promise you that.’’ That’s great, Coach, and welcome to the pros. The players should give it their all because each week they get a fat paycheck. Effort is fine — but this ain’t youth sports. Results ring true, and on that front, the Chargers (9-7) got the back of a hand. Was this Chargers season a disaster? Far from it. This is the entertainment business and that roller-coaster trek the Chargers led was a hoot:
beating the defending Super Bowl champion Seahawks, a five-game winning steak and those dramatic come-from-behind wins at Baltimore and San Francisco. But every year has dips: getting shut out in Miami, being smoked at Denver and losing three of their past four, which includes Sunday’s face-plant in Kansas City. The Chargers won as many games as last year, but they didn’t show progress by missing the playoffs. That the Chargers didn’t advance — especially with their fate in their own mitts — is a failure. But what about injuries? From center Nick Hardwick to running back Ryan Mathews to wide receiver Keenan Allen, the Chargers were decimated. So what. An NFL insider told me years ago that injuries are the first exit on the highway of excuses. Everyone has them, or didn’t you notice the Chiefs were without quarterback Alex Smith, safety Eric Berry and linebacker Derrick Johnson? That’s why when foot-
ball folks brag about being part of the ultimate team sport, they’re not lying. If you don’t possess the depth to replace starters, that’s on you. What’s on McCoy and offensive coordinator Frank Reich is their offensive plan against the Chiefs. It looked as out of place as a vegan in a K.C. barbecue joint. Philip Rivers was sacked seven times and good luck scoring more than one touchdown — the Chargers didn’t — with that pass protection. Where were the adjustments to stymie the Chiefs meeting at the pocket? Where were the screens, the play-action, the backs staying in and the tight ends remaining on the tackles’ hips. Why was tight end Antonio Gates ignored for large chunks of the game? Did Malcolm Floyd make the team bus? Why were the Chargers giving the ball to a third-string running back to squeeze behind a fifth-string center when a precious yard was required to keep the playoff hopes on life support?

M arketplace News Career colleges play key role in demand for skilled workers (BPT) — Education is not a one-size-fits-all system. Much like each public university has its own unique culture, so does each type of higher education institution. In addition, the goals of each student are not the same. Some students are fresh out of high school and looking forward to the social opportunities that a public university will give them, and they are not in a hurry to get their degree. Some are single parents, already working fulltime jobs, who just want to go back to school and quickly get a degree and get a better job. For these latter students, a four-year university may not be the right fit for their needs. Instead, career colleges really can be the way to go. Career colleges — What are the benefits? Many people are recognizing the importance of skills training in the workplace as it relates to their chances of a promotion and increase in pay, according to a recent article in Business News Daily. These people are turning to career colleges because they know they can quickly learn the skills they are lacking and start moving up the professional ladder through the programs offered. According to Westwood College — Dupage Campus President Jeff Hill, career colleges “are focused on providing students with hands-on learning and quick degree completion which help develop a trained workforce for employers and can positively impact the economy. Without question, education is one of the biggest factors with regard to economic advancement in today’s society and career-focused schools play a vital role as one — of many — education options for students.” If you’re interested in a new career? Check out Westwood’s degree programs. Demand for skilled labor plays a huge role in the economy. It is not uncommon for employers to have available jobs, but not enough trained workers to fill them. Many employers discuss their plans to grow their companies and hire more people, but aren’t sure where they will find workers with the skills they need, according to a recent article published by the Newark Advocate. It’s not a problem just for businesses in Newark, New Jersey. The U.S. Department of Labor predicts those jobs that tend to require some form of higher education will grow faster than those you can get with just a high school diploma or less. The department also predicts a shortage of more than 35 million skilled workers over the next 30 years.

Fact or fiction: Debunking eight dental myths SAN MARCOS — Information about oral health can be as misunderstood as it is necessary. Dr. Shishir Shah of Sun Smile Dental recently took some time to address eight common dental myths and explain how what you might think is true is actually not. Myth 1: Cavities are only caused by sweets. “Technically, cavities are caused by carbohydrates interacting with bacteria on your teeth to create acid byproducts,” Dr. Shah said. “Carbs include sugars. Sugars do promote cavities, but they can easily be caused by crackers, potato chips and bread. Sugars can create ‘bacteria on steroids’ effects.” Myth 2: Children are more prone to cavities than adults. “Kids and adults are both prone to bacterial infections,” Dr. Shah said. “It is just that kids are not brushing as well as some adults. Teach yourself and your kids good brushing techniques, which you can learn at your dentist’s office, and the bacteria will stop attacking your teeth.”
tion,” Dr. Shah said. “Start with visiting your dentist at least twice a year, and follow the instructions given for your oral hygiene care at home. A dental checkup and two cleanings a year are recommended to help detect hidden disease. Rectification of severe dental conditions is obviously more expensive than corrections of beginning disease conditions.” Myth 6: Old age leads to dentures. “There are 20-yearolds who need dentures and there are 90-year-olds who have lost a few teeth,” Dr. Shah said. “Both are not uncommon. The answer is oral hygiene and regular dental For 10 years, the staff of Sun Smile Dental in San Marcos has been cleanings and check-ups, offering friendly, caring general dentistry services. starting from a young age.”
through your enamel and dentin before some people feel it at all,” Dr. Shah said. “Pain signals from teeth, gums or mouth are a sign that serious, not beginning, dental problems may have already occurred. The true miracle of modern dentistry is disease prevention. Catching tooth decay early typically allows more of the tooth to be saved, and can spare you added discomfort and exMyth 3: My teeth are fine if pense.” I have no pain. “Decay can eat clear Myth 4: If my gums bleed, I
should stop flossing. “Actually, that’s a really bad idea,” Dr. Shah said. “Bleeding gums are often the first sign of gum disease. This happens when bacterial infections inflame your gums due to lack of efficient cleaning. That is a sure sign that you should seek dental care ASAP.” Myth 5: Dental treatment is too expensive. “The best way to keep dental expense down is to practice disease preven-
Myth 7: My insurance should pay for everything. “Here are some facts about dental insurance: dental insurance only pays for a portion of the dental bill,” Dr. Shah said. “Employees of the same company may have different coverage. Even if two insurances are in effect, a co-payment may still be necessary. Every policy has a deductible and co-payment. Dental insurance does not contain enough yearly maximum benefits to cover
major dentistry.” Myth 8: Having a tooth pulled is an easy process. “When teeth are mobile because of gum disease, removal is easy and may be a better option,” Dr. Shah said. “Often teeth need a good amount of force to remove and can be difficult when the roots are buried, twisted, hooked, infected or close to a nerve, which can cause more problems. “Moreover, once a tooth is removed, it causes problems with the adjacent teeth and bone as they go through a missing tooth syndrome.” Dr. Shaw pointed out that your greatest weapon against tooth decay is knowledge. “Your dentist is the best resource you have to get all the knowledge you need. Please ask questions and get options for your dental treatment from your provider.” Sun Smile Dental offers early morning and late evening appointments to accommodate busy schedules and offers 24-hour emergency care. They are located at 1582 W. San Marcos Blvd. Suite 201. For more information about the services offered and to learn more about the Sun Smile team, visit sunsmiledental.com or call (760) 744-1300.
Now is the time to get control of your weight with LifeSculpt One of the more common lines of questions that come up during a LifeSculpt consult is about the effects of weight loss on the liposuction procedure. Is there an ideal weight? Should I lose weight first? How will weight loss affect the procedure? Etc. The ideal candidate is at a healthy weight with a stubborn fat pocket that needs to be reshaped. Then there are the rest of us. The first thing to know is that liposuction, laser assisted or otherwise, should not be considered a weight loss procedure. If your concern is health and weight loss is the number one goal then a weight loss program is the better choice. At Dermacare we use the Medifast and the Take Shape for Life program. The typical procedure only removes two to four pounds of fat. The good news, however, is that because the fat is strategically removed the cosmetic impact is much greater than that. As stated above the ideal candidate for the procedure is a person who is at healthy weight but with stubborn fat pockets. This person has enough of problem that removal of the fat will make a noticeable difference, but not so much that the skin cannot tighten back down. If one is too thin,

then there will be very little difference seen after the procedure. There is also risk of leaving the skin looking uneven and irregular. When a person is greater than 20 percent overweight, for safety reasons the procedure should not be done in an outpatient setting. People that are overweight by less than 20 percent are still candidates as long as their expectations are appropriate. The dilemma here is that removing larger amounts of fat will leave some loose skin.
I will ask if the goal is to look good in your clothes or to look good in a bikini. In clothes, the shape will be much improved but the skin will not be noticeable. Using the SlimLipo laser will increase this skin tightening by greater than 70 percent, but depending on a person’s genetics this may still not be enough. During the consultation process, we will go over the range of possibilities and make sure your expectations match what we can achieve. As far as weight loss
prior to or after the procedure, I always support getting to a healthy weight. If a person is overweight by > 20 percent, then they need to lose weight prior to considering laser assisted liposuction. For everyone else, I like to see some weight loss after the procedure. It has been a great joy to see people after the procedure get so motivated by the result that they follow through on their lifestyle goals and get healthier. Weight loss after the procedure is very beneficial.
Not only do the effects of weight loss improve the results in the treated area, but also proportionally gives greater cosmetic results in non-treated areas. This is a win-win-win situation. If this is the time for you to get your body under control come in for consultation. We can help you decide if LifeSculpt, a weight loss program, or both is right for you.

Each exoskeleton is custom measured to the user. There are some restrictions. People must be between 5 feet 2 inches and 6 feet 3 inches tall and
must be individually evaluated. Some people who don’t have use of their upper extremities don’t make good candidates, Giafaglione said, although some companies are working towards making exoskeletons geared towards them. Giafaglione is hopeful about the progress of the exoskeleton. “This is something that’s going to change the world of paralysis forever. Who knows, 10 years or five years from now, people might not even be using chairs anymore,” Giafaglione said.
Even small amounts of physical activity can improve mood, control weight, boost energy, fight disease, promote sleep and much more. If anything take a nice 20-minute brisk walk daily. Try to eat whole, unprocessed foods. If it has more than one ingredient listed on the package, it is processed. Try to look for shorter ingredient lists and don’t buy things with ingredients you can’t even pronounce. Go for more plant based foods like fruits and veggies and eat raw when possible, as all the micronutrients and enzymes have not been damaged due to the cooking process. Getting the right amount of sleep will ensure that your body and mind can function better on all levels. Try scaling back on the caffeine during the day and add in some meditation and/ or breathing exercises. Ever heard the saying “stress will kill you”? Stress can weaken your immune system and over time increase your risk of sickness and disease. Even just 10-15 minutes of meditation per day is a great way to unwind and clear your head.

They have them most of the year, but right now they are just way better and the aromatics and flavor are just completely off the charts. Sweet Potatoes are loaded with vitamins, minerals and are low glycemic. They aren’t starchy like regular potatoes and they can satisfy your sweet tooth. We like to always keep things simple so the food can speak for itself so with these guys we grill them up with some garlic and herb infused olive oil served like home fries on Sunday Morning and you can add a side to any dish.

bum,” because, he said, it was the beginning of the exploration into his more bluesy/ indie rock style — a sound he’s embraced. Though in San Diego, with all of its beauty, it can be a little rough to accommodate writing songs that are more to his blues style. “It’s a little bit too happy,” Hall said. “But you can still find beauty in some of the darkness, too.” He recognizes that the city and its surroundings do impact they way he writes. “You’re a product of your environment whether you realize it or not,” he said. “Whatever’s around you affects you.”

I don’t know either and we’re sure McCoy will respond that it was in the best interest of the team before everyone dozes off. McCoy promised a dynamic, innovative offense, even if Reich was breaking his seal as a coordinator. Instead McCoy’s blueprint, with Reich’s calls, presented a dull, lackluster approach where the next trick play will be its first. In five of the last eight games, the offense collected one or fewer touchdowns. In three of the last four outings, the offense topped out at reaching the end zone once. That’s OK with a punishing defense. That’s not true in San Diego, although that side of the ball was more efficient in the season’s second half. In Kansas City, Rivers’ unit was two for 11 on third downs, turned the ball over three times — all by Rivers — and scored
because there is a special family bond here.” Director of marketing at Extraordinary Conceptions, Erica Hawkesworth, said their company is so fortunate to have grown over the years. It moved from its very small space in San Elijo Hills about three years ago. According to Hawkesworth, they wanted to have an open-house style event to introduce themselves to local Carlsbad businesses and residents, as well as inviting its neighbors in San Marcos to come see how they have grown. “We also wanted to invite our clients, surrogates and egg donors to stop by meet everyone in person, since much of our business is done over the Internet, Skype and social media.

tinued, “So the idea was quickly born and we invited Santa to come be in Polaroid pictures with the kids while everyone could enjoy hot cocoa, sweet treats and enter in a raffle for $100 gift cards to five terrific stores.” The holiday gathering lasted two hours and nearly 100 people came by to visit Santa and donate to Solutions for Change. “It was a really great morning getting to meet everyone and their children and have some great conversations,” Hawkesworth said. She added, “Stephanie had tears in her eyes as we loaded up her SUV with all the new clothing, toys and games for the kids. She said that she can’t wait to see the look on their faces when they receive all of these great gifts.” To learn more about Solutions for Change visit solutionsforchange.org
portrayal of the person’s essence — or as Shigley describes, “a character that is hard earned through sometimes many years of life on the streets and the daily struggle for survival that that may bring.” Shigley acknowledges that artists have the ability to focus public attention on challenging situations that exist in our society. He states, “By focusing attention you can raise awareness, in this case to people living in the streets. When awareness is raised then change can happen on a society level, or even on a personal level where you just treat somebody with respect as a human being.” In regards to the homeless, Shigley muses, “It’s easy to see the differences. If we focus on the things that make us alike, if we embrace these things, if we search for these things, it opens the door for peace, love, and understanding. It’s important that people
who see this work have a little bit different look at people… All people, not just people in the street.” Shigley suggests, “The next time you pass someone sleeping in the street, I hope you will realize that as a child, this is probably not the life that they had dreamed of leading. Each has a family, friends and a story of why they are where they are. By presenting these faces on a large scale we are forced to confront them and the situation that so many like them find themselves. My dream for each portrait is to, in some small way, touch on the human condition.” Neil Shigley: Invisible People will be on display at Oceanside Museum of Art through Feb. 15.

that glorious one touchdown. That’s not good enough and the Chargers aren’t good enough for the playoffs. It’s hard to argue you’re sixth-best in your conference when you’re third-best in your division. The Chargers were swept by the Broncos and Chiefs and thank goodness for the hapless Raiders. This year will be remembered for the Chargers not knowing what fork to grab while at the big-boy table. While that win over Seattle was swell, the Chargers were 3-6 against teams with a winning record. Beating up on the Raiders, Jaguars, Jets and Rams is grand because who doesn’t like cupcakes? But the proof was in the pounding, and that’s happened when the Chargers went up a class. The Chargers’ sky, though, isn’t cascading toward the earth. There is a core group of players to
build around and it’s time for general manager Tom Telesco to get busy. He must decide whether to bring back Mathews (no), King Dunlap (yes) and Eddie Royal (yes). He must draft wisely, hoping his third class resembles his first in D.J. Fluker, Manti Te’o and Allen. Last year’s haul was average at best: Jason Verrett played in six games, Jerry Attaochu had two sacks and Chris Watt started five games. Looking ahead can’t come soon enough for an organization that has missed the playoffs in four of the past five years and has two postseason wins since 2008. The Chargers are eager to chat about building a stadium. That’s fine, and we don’t blame them. More importantly, though is the rebuilt team they put in those fresh digs.

Refuse to sit back or give in to laziness. It’s up to you to make a focused effort to clear up what’s holding you back, so that you can dive into projects and the goals you have set for yourself without delay. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Making extra money should be your goal. Check out projects that you can tackle on a parttime basis. Doing a little research could end up making you a tidy sum. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- You will encounter someone with differing beliefs. If you are unclear about something, ask. You could end up in a vulnerable position if you have misread or misinterpreted someone’s actions.

College daycare has open slots REGION — Palomar College’s San Marcos and Escondido Child Early Childhood Education Lab Schools (ECELS) have spaces available for children whose families desire an educational program in preparation for the primary grades. Programs are offered at the San Marcos site for children from 18-months-old through kindergarten age; and at the Escondido site for children from ages three to five. Applications, income eligibility guidelines and more information are available online at palomar.edu/childrenscenter. At the Escondido ECELS applications are accepted from qualified families for a 3.25-hour program. The San Marcos ECELS is also accepting applications from both subsidized and full-pay families. Full and half-day spaces are available at the San Marcos site. The State Preschool program is open to community members regardless of their student or work status. This program is free for those qualified based on family income. A sliding fee scale is available at the San Marcos ECELS for Palomar College students, depending on family size and income. This fee is based on gross family income and family size, and is determined by the California Department of Education, Child
Development Division. For those who do not qualify for the sliding scale, which also applies to Palomar faculty and staff, and community members, the current fee for children under age three is $63 for a full day. For children three and over, fees are $46 for a full day and $34 for a half day. The San Marcos ECELS enrolls children from the age of 18 months up through kindergarten age. The college’s centers are open year-round Monday through Friday. The San Marcos ECELS is open 7 a.m. to 5:45 p.m. The Escondido Center has preschool classes from 8:15 to 11:30 a.m., 8:30 a.m. to 11:45, 12:45 to 4 p.m. or 1 to 4:15 p.m. only. Interested parents are encouraged to visit the centers. More information is available by calling the San Marcos ECELS, (760) 7441150, ext. 2575, or the Escondido ECELS, (760) 744-1150, ext. 8155. Additionally, the two centers announce sponsorship of the Child Care Food Program, a subsidy program of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) that provides food at no charge to eligible participants. (The USDA prohibits discrimination in all its programs and activities on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender, religion, age, disability, or political beliefs).
