Roadwork in the Ranch is set to begin By Patty McCormac

RANCHO SANTA FE — The county of San Diego will soon begin the street improvements at the awkward intersection of Via de Santa Fe and La Granada to make it a more easily traversed four-way intersection in the heart of the village of Rancho Santa Fe. “Construction will

begin in June and should be finished by September,” Associate Planner Liz Avalon told the Association at its May 20 meeting. She said that although businesses and residences will remain accessible throughout the process, street parking in the immediate area will be prohibited.

“There will be phased road closures and detours around the construction activities on portions of La Granada and Via de Santa Fe adjacent to the intersection,” she said. “We were assured that the businesses would have access to their parking lot throughout the construction, although there may be

a few days when access to the underground parking and market loading docks are limited,” she said. — Phase 1: Four to six weeks with La Granada closed to through traffic, which will be detoured to Via de Santa Fe. — Phase 2: Four to six TURN TO ROADWORK ON 27

Lead story America What a Country! In 2007, after a stay in the United States distinguished mainly by his acquisition of a long police record, illegal immigrant Cecil Harvey, 55, was deported to his native Barbados. However, according to records revealed by the New York Post in May, Harvey received, in late 2009, one last remembrance of America: $145,000 from the city of New York in settlement of his lawsuit over having once been held at Rikers Island jail for about a month longer than the law permitted.

Ironies — Betty Lou Lynn, 83, was mugged and had her wallet stolen in her new hometown of Mount Airy, N.C., in April. Lynn is the actress who played Barney Fife’s best girl, Thelma Lou, in the Andy Griffith TV show and had lived in Los Angeles until she became alarmed at the city’s crime rate. She decided in 2007 to move to the quieter, peaceful Mount Airy, which was Griffith’s birthplace and the model for the TV town of Mayberry. — Gary Null filed a lawsuit in New York City in April against the maker of a nutrition supplement called Ultimate Power Meal, alleging that he had suffered constant pain, kidney damage and internal bleeding from the product’s recommended daily regimen. Ultimate Power Meal is one of the “health” supplements packaged under the label of ... Gary Null, a nationally prominent pitchman for homeopathic remedies. Null is suing the manufacturer who supplies the product on which Null affixes his Ultimate Power Meal label. (According to consumer advisers at Quackwatch.org, Null is “one of the nation’s leading promoters of dubious treatment for serious disease.”) — According to court records cited by The Washington Post in April, Rene Fernandez, 45, will plead guilty to one count of a DUI-caused injury in connection with a 2009 traffic accident in Montgomery County, Md., that severely injured a retired county judge and his wife, both in their 80s. Fernandez and the judge, Edwin Collier, had met previously, in 1998, when Judge Collier pronounced sentence on Fernandez for DUI. At that time, Judge Collier released Fernandez on probation, even though Fernandez had been arrested for DUI twice in the previous three months.

This special time of study for the students is a total school immersion in ocean science that is incorporated in the lesson plans for math, social studies, geography and art courtesy of the school’s partnership with Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institution of Oceanography. An assembly officially opened the nearly two-week event that concluded June 3. All of the classes visited the classes of two other grade levels to see what they have done to recognize Ocean Week. Scientists came to the school to speak about their travels and what they have learned about sea creatures. Each class studied a different area of ocean science.

Immigration law debated by candidates for sheriff By Randy Kalp

SAN DIEGO — “Anybody here read the bill?” asked retired undersheriff Jay La Suer referring to Arizona’s recently enacted immigration law during a debate May 21 at Balboa Park. Only three people out of the hundred or so in attendance raised their hands. La Suer, as well as the two other candidates running for San Diego Sheriff — Jim Duffy and Sheriff Bill Gore, the appointed incumbent — weighed in on their feelings about the Arizona law, Senate Bill 1070, and San Diego County’s role in tackling border-related crimes at a lunch time forum sponsored by the Catfish Club in preparation for the June 8 election. “I support the bill; I think it’s good law,” said La Suer, urging the audience to read the bill for themselves and not let the media dictate their view. The former

state assemblyman said he believed the law was wellwritten and clearly states that it “strictly” prohibits racial profiling. In April, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer passed the law saying she was compelled to do so because of the federal government’s inability to craft a comprehensive immigration policy. Following a probable cause stop, for example, not wearing a seat belt, the law allows Arizona law enforcement agencies to arrest a person if they can’t verify their U.S. citizenship. Despite strong support in Arizona, nationwide protests and lawsuits have ensued. Earlier this month, the American Civil Liberties Union and a coalition of civil rights groups filed a class action lawsuit in U.S. District Court challenging the law as unconstitutional, according to a press release issued by the ACLU. The coalition charged that the

law encourages racial profiling, interferes with federal law and violates the first amendment. Duffy, the son of former Sheriff John Duffy, said he initially disagreed with the Arizona law but changed his thoughts on the bill after reading it. “It’s no different really then the policy we have today and had for years in the sheriff’s department,” the 27-year law enforcement veteran said. The main difference, Duffy said, is that San Diego sheriff’s deputies are not authorized to arrest or place immigration holds on a person who can’t verify their U.S. citizenship. Admittedly, Duffy said his objective is to keep people out of San Diego County who are committing crimes regardless of whether they are in the country illegally, and that a law such as the one in Arizona affords law enforcement one more instrument to accomplish

that goal. “I don’t want my deputies profiling people,” said Duffy, a former president of the Deputy Sheriffs’ Association of San Diego County. “I don’t want them out in the community looking for illegal immigration, but I do want to make sure that when we come across someone committing a crime and they go inside of our jails that we are using all the tools available to us to deal with that problem.” Gore rebutted Duffy’s belief that the two states’ laws were similar. “We can detain someone and call border patrol, but my deputy sheriffs don’t have the training to be immigration officers or border patrol officers so they are not going to be arresting anybody out there,” Gore said. The incumbent said he didn’t support the bill TURN TO SHERIFF ON 27

OCEANSIDE — A San Diego jury on May 26 convicted a 28-yearold man for molesting his niece while the girl was visiting her grandmother’s house in Oceanside. After nearly four full days of deliberation, the jury found Walter Emilio Blanco guilty of two counts of committing lewd and lascivious acts with a child under the age of 14 in connection to the molestation of his niece in 2003. The panel, however, was hung on a third count of the aforementioned charge as well as a molestation allegation that was attached to the first count. Prosecutors alleged Blanco molested his niece, who was 11 years old at the time, while the two were hanging out at the victim’s grandmother’s house and at Oceanside beach during a summer vacation. In his closing argument, Deputy District Attorney Roy Lai described the sexual acts as “heinous” and “atrocious.” Lai pointed to the girl’s statements to police and in court as well as a police recorded phone call she made in 2008 to Blanco in which he apologizes for molesting her as proof of the defendant’s guilt. Lai told jurors Blanco was trying to spin the details of the sexual assault in that phone call to minimize the acts. However, Blanco’s attorney, Herb Weston, told jurors in his closing argument that Blanco was simply placating his niece when he admitted to touching her inappropriately. He added that the defendant denied any sexual intercourse in the taped phone call. “He’s saying events occurred that didn’t occur,” said Weston, adding that his client was willing to apologize for a crime he didn’t commit so that the victim would drop the subject. Weston also pointed to the victim’s statements saying they were inconsistent as proof that his client was not guilty. On the stand, Blanco, who now faces up to 10 years in prison, denied molesting his niece. His sentencing date was set for July 28.

Smoke-free outdoor dining — the tide is turning By Liliana Sandoval

For more than a decade, the California Tobacco Control Program has impacted the health and lives of every citizen of California. Grassroots programs designed and run by local health departments, community groups, schools and a mass media campaign have made a significant difference in the lives of millions. By raising the awareness of the harms of tobacco use and secondhand smoke, especially to youth, social norms around smoking are changing. Almost every community in the state has at least one policy limiting the areas in which smoking can occur. As a result beaches, parks, trails, zoos, and even some entertainment venues have become healthier environments for everyone to enjoy. The next focus in healthy environments is smoke-free outdoor dining patios and cafes. The tide is turning on this issue. In 2006, 94 percent of Californians said they preferred dining in a smoke-free restaurant, including 82 percent of smokers, which is a drastic increase from 1994, when only 43 percent of smokers preferred smoke-free

restaurants (California Adult Tobacco Survey, 2006). Currently, five counties and 62 cities in the state of California have regulations on smoking in or near outdoor dining patios. Surveys show that most people are bothered by secondhand smoke while dining in a patio; however they choose to say nothing or just hurry up and leave because they feel that there is no remedy to the situation. A Stanford University study found that someone sitting near a smoker in an outdoor patio setting can be facing the same amount of exposure as sitting next to a smoker indoors. With all the harmful effects of secondhand smoke, including exposure to more than 50 cancer causing chemicals, the less time spent breathing toxic air, the better. Smoke-free outdoor dining is of value to restaurant patrons, but it will truly benefit hospitality staff.A new study from the University of Georgia found that those exposed to outdoor tobacco smoke for periods of six hours or more were found to have up to 162 times TURN TO SMOKE-FREE ON 13

Survey: luggage fees a big travel woe By Consumer Reports

Travelers have many reasons to be annoyed, but what bugs them most are luggage charges and addon airline ticket fees, according to a survey by Consumer Reports. Travelers were also very annoyed by rude or unhelpful staff, whether at airlines, hotels or rentalcar companies. The Consumer Reports National Research Center conducted 2,000 interviews in a nationally representative telephone survey. CR asked respondents to score three lists of travel gripes covering rentalcars, airlines and hotels for a total of 24 items on a 1to-10 scale, with “1” meaning an experience “does not annoy you at all” and “10” meaning it “annoys you tremendously.” Luggage charges (8.4 overall) and added airline ticket fees (8.1) top the list, but rude or unhelpful staff at rental-car companies (7.9), hotels (7.8) and airlines (7.7) were also among the more annoying things that rub Americans the wrong way while traveling. Among the highlights: — Poor communication about airline delays (7.1) annoyed people slightly more than the delays themselves (6.8). — Airline travelers who hog your seat (7.0) and carry-on space (6.7) are less annoying than some other irritants. Many people give crying babies and unruly kids (4.9) on planes a pass and have apparently gotten used to puny or no airline snacks (5.1) and long lines for security and check-in (5.2). — Women travelers are somewhat more annoyed than men. Among complaints for which the gender gap was sufficient: pricey in-room hotel snacks (6.8 women, 5.2 men); insufficient or chintzy hotel bedding (7.2 women, 6.2 men), and high-pressure pitches for extra rental-car coverage or upgrades (7.1 women, 6.0 men). — Some gripes annoyed respondents under age 50 much more than those 50 and older. Those included rude or unhelpful airline staff (8.6 under 50, 8.0 50 or older), rental-car pitches (6.8 under 50, 6.1 50 or older), and absence of the ordered car (6.5 under 50, 5.4 50 and older).

Cardiff Seaside Market is truly a neighboorhood store By Lillian Cox

CARDIFF BY THE SEA — If your shopping list includes organic salad fixings, wild Alaska sockeye salmon, 18-year-old scotch and a scented soy candle you can find it all at Cardiff Seaside Market. Vegetarian? The deli features homemade teriyaki grilled tofu and zucchini protein pancakes. “If a customer asks for something we don’t have, we’ll always try to get it for them,” said store owner John Najjar. Najjar and his brother, Peter, opened the market in June 1985. About 10 years ago they were so successful that they were able to buy the building that houses the entire Cardiff Town Center. By staying in business, even thriving, they’ve beaten the odds by doing what previous tenants such as Vons and Farmers Choice were unable to do. Their formula is simple. They are invested in the com-

munity by living in Cardiff and being responsive to their clientele. When they acquired the Cardiff Town Center they launched a revitalization program that included donating money to the Cardiff library and the Cardiff Schools Education Fund, or SEA. The first Friday night of every month the store hosts a Family Movie Night on their patio. Profits from food and beverage sales benefit Cardiff SEA. Najjar also supports fellow business owners through the Cardiff 101 Main Street. “We have a philosophy that you should support local merchants because they will keep money in the community,” Najjar said. “People are attracted to the coast because businesses are independently owned. They are the lifeblood of the community.” The Najjar brothers GROCERIES AND MORE John Najjar, a Cardiff resident and owner of the Cardiff Seaside Market, has no plans to open a second location know something about busielsewhere. “When you live and work in a community, you’re tied to it," ness.

Man on trial in ‘shooting rampage’ By Randy Kalp

ESCONDIDO — A 26year-old man charged with firing on police officers as he led them on a pursuit through North County in March will have to stand trial on charges relating to the altercation, a San Diego Superior Court judge ruled May 26. Following a daylong preliminary hearing, Judge Harry Elias found enough evidence to bind Eric Anthony Pomatto over on 27 criminal counts relating to the six-mile chase that originated on Rose Street in Escondido outside Pomatto’s ex-girlfriend’s father’s house around 6:15 p.m. March 19. The charges include 11 counts of attempted murder relating to the nine Escondido police officers and two police cadets involved in the pursuit.

Sea show opens at gallery

RANCHO SANTA FE — Joseph Bellows Gallery, 16904 Via de Santa Fe, will present an exhibition of new photographs by Bill Rastetter, titled “Bill Rastetter: Seascapes” from June 19 through the end of July. An opening reception with the artist will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. June 19. A portion of the proceeds from all opening night sales will benefit the Rancho Santa Fe Historical Society. Rastetter’s work explores familiar landscape to unexpected effect.His contemplative imagery captures more than an isolated moment in time; rather it offers a window on the emotion of sea and sky. Focusing on the horizon line, the elemental nexus that connects two worlds, Rastetter’s work is a meditation on ever-evolving oceanic mood. By turns brooding and benevolent, serene and faintly ominous, Rastetter’s landscapes are dynamic, shifting and seemingly alive. Using time-lapse photography (with exposures ranging from 1 to 11 minutes) and 4-by-5-inch or 60-by-20centimeter color transparency, Rastetter works in subtle abstraction, creating images that often bear a resemblance to watercolor painting. Printing the images on watercolor paper using the giclée process serves to enhance this soft yet vibrant otherworldly effect; capturing views of the landscape that exist beyond normal temporal perception.

Journalist chronicles railroad hospitality tycoon in book Input sought for Balboa lot sale

E’LOUISE ONDASH Hit the Road The Greatest Generation and some older boomers are probably the last demographic groups to really remember the Fred Harvey empire, which eventually encompassed 26 hotels (some are still operating or in restoration) and more than 300 lunchrooms, dining rooms and newsstands at 155 stops along the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe, the St. Louis and San Francisco, the Kansas Pacific and Southern Pacific railroads. (The restaurant in St. Louis’ Union Station remained operational until 1970.) The life of this amazing British immigrant and American entrepreneur (1835-1901) is chronicled in the recently published “Appetite for America: How Visionary Businessman Fred Harvey Built a Railroad Hospitality Empire That Civilized the West” (Bantam Books). It was written by award-winning investigative journalist and magazine writer Stephen Fried, who became enthralled with Harvey after a 1993 stay at the august El Tovar Hotel at the Grand Canyon (opened 1905; renovated 2005). It was

actually built by Harvey’s son, Ford, who carried on with his father’s vision after the magnate’s death. “There was a portrait of Fred in the lobby and a pamphlet about him in the room,” said Fried in a phone interview from his Philadelphia home. “Initially I thought it was a magazine story, but as the years went by and I learned more about him, I came to believe that it would be a great sweeping story.” Fried spent six years

writing the Harvey story which he pieced together from the volumes of notes, letters, datebooks and other papers Harvey kept over the years. “(Fred) wrote down a lot of stuff … and I was the first journalist to have access to it,” Fried explained. “Most of it was sitting in basements of family members and not catalogued. They had been taken care of well enough, but no one had treated them as the museum pieces that they are.” Fried took the documents home where he assembled a fascinating read that marries Harvey’s notes on his daily routines, chronic illness, business ideas, meetings, trav-

In doing so, the author gives events like the Civil War, the Panic of 1893 (eerily similar to today’s recession) and the Oklahoma Land Rush a human face. “I slept through much of this in high school history class,” Fried said, “but now, following the family through history, it was real and dramatic.” Harvey played a large role in attracting visitors to the 1915 Panama California Exposition in Balboa Park, and managed the food service at the Santa Fe Station in downtown San Diego. To appreciate what Harvey did for the traveling, tourism and restaurant industries, you must understand that those who could afford to vacation in the late 1800s/early 1900s went east to Europe. The wonders of our West were just being discovered and traveling by train and dining along the way was evolving from “subpar” at

best. “The food was awful … ” Fried said during an interview on NPR. “… they would serve it to you so late that by the time you sat down, it was time to get back on the train. (Then) they would actually scrape the food off the plate and serve it to the next person who came … ” Fred Harvey changed all that. He hired renowned chefs and brought in fresh produce and meats via railroad cars. He set high standards for flavor, cleanliness, efficiency, uniformity and fast service with a smile. And then there were the Harvey Girls — young women who came mostly from Eastern states to work as waitresses in restaurants and lunch counters throughout the West.

DEL MAR — The city will hold a public hearing June 14 at 7 p.m. to discuss the potential sale of the vacant lot at 2160 Balboa Avenue to pay off a loan used to fund the purchase of a 5.3-acre site that was once home to Del Mar Shores Elementary School. The hearing was scheduled for May 17, but with Carl Hilliard and Mark Filanc absent and Mayor Richard Earnest obligated to recuse himself, too few council members were available to hear the item. To ensure the Shores property would remain open space for public use, the city bought the property from the Del Mar Union School District in May 2008 for $8.5 million. Friends of Del Mar Parks and the Winston School, a private educational facility on the site, raised about $5 million through private donations. Contributions since then have diminished significantly, primarily because of current economic conditions. The city took out a loan to pay off the district and avoid high interest payments. A $3.2 million balloon payment on that note is due in November 2011. The sale of the 22,200-square-foot Balboa lot, one of the few parcels in the city with ocean and mountain views from any direction, is expected to more than cover the loan. Any additional funds would be used to help pay for another city project, such as replacing the 17th Street safety center and lifeguard station. A public hearing is required before the city can proceed with the sale.

Village Community Presbyterian Church’s new sanctuary consecrated RANCHO SANTA FE — The new sanctuary of the Village Community Presbyterian Church in Rancho Santa Fe was consecrated at the 9:30 a.m. service May 23. “With all the elements of our new sanctuary completed, including the lovingly restored chapel, new stained glass and enhanced organ, we are pleased to dedicate the building,” said Rev. Dr. Jack Baca, senior pastor. “Every generation of the church of Jesus Christ must work to build his kingdom and to pass it on to succeeding generations, and with this renovated

and expanded church campus, we have made a significant contribution to the present and future health of the church here in Rancho Santa Fe and the entire North County region.” Distinguished by handmade Spanish tile roofing and a 5-foot-6-inch cross, which sits atop a 42-foot dome adjaBLESSING Featuring a handmade Spanish tile roofing and 42foot dome adjacent to a 45-foot tile-roofed tower, the new sanctuary of the Village Community Presbyterian Church in Rancho Santa Fe was consecrated May 23.

cent to a 45-foot tile-roofed tower, the structure is the tallest architectural point in Rancho Santa Fe. A courtyard setting is at the heart of the campus. The new sanctuary offers seating for nearly 600, with improved visibility and audibility from all areas as part of the church’s new interior design, also by domusstudio architecture. “The new circular seating layout of the church has improved the sense of community within the church,” according to

domusstudio architecture associate David Keitel. “From an architectural and planning perspective, the Village Church design represents an anchor in the community, positioned as it is at the opposite end of the Village from the beloved Inn at Rancho Santa Fe. The building’s Lilian Rice design blends nicely with the character of Rancho Santa Fe, and we trust Lilian Rice would be pleased and find joy with our architectural addition,” Keitel said. “There have been many, many accolades about the new structure and how its design inspires the congregation and strengthens the worship experience,” Baca said. “The building may be responsible for the recent increase in attendance, but we trust that visitors find a fulfilled worship experience and thus have returned.” A place of worship for more than 40 years, Rancho Santa Fe Village Church began its current construction project in September 2008 when demolition crews TURN TO CHURCH ON 27

Just between us, I’m worried about my son’s international adventure I’m worried, faithful readers. There are those who will contend this isn’t an unusual a state of mind for me. The difference here is that I’m worried about my son. Why is that unusual? Well, he’s currently backpacking around Europe on a dime, just as decades of youngsters — including his father before him — have done. And you might swiftly assure me that it’s perfectly normal to worry. In truth, it’s not. I have an odd track

JEAN GILLETTE Small Talk record of reasonable nonchalance when my son begins to wander. At 16, this same son went off to Nicaragua for six weeks, out of phone and computer range. I missed him like mad, but somehow I did-

n’t worry. At 18, he went across the country to school. I didn’t really worry about him then either. Next he was off to Germany for a semester to study. Nope. No real concerns about him then, either. It appears I have been saving it all up for this latest sojourn. Never mind that he is older and hopefully wiser. Never mind that he has traveled Europe before. Never mind that he can speak enough German and Spanish to read signs and menus. I am not sleeping as well as I’d

like. My rationale seems sound to me. In Nicaragua, he had Amigos de las Americas watching his back. At college, he was in the dorm and, mostly, on campus. Even in Germany, he was still affiliated with the university, and even on his side trips, he was able to stay in apartments of friends of a friend and such. This is the very first time he has struck out with no safety net of any kind and it scares the good sense out of

me. This time, there will be no dorms, apartments or even a cheap hotel.This time, everything he owns is on his back and he is staying in hostels with, well, gee, who knows who. Never mind that he is with three big, strong buddies. I have enough worry to go around for all of them. It’s enough to make a mother remember every horror story she has ever heard — ever — about pickpockets, international thieves, spy rings, terrorists and halfcrazed nut jobs. And she

might even find her imagination making up a few new ones. I’ll be forced to find something new to worry about next week when he lands back in San Diego, but this may be a long few days for me. At least then I will get to see him for, oh, maybe 24 hours if we’re lucky. He may even be awake for some of it. I know better than to try to compete with the lure of the girlfriend and a new apartment in Boston. He’ll be on the first possible plane east, but at least he will be far less likely to wander across the wrong border and get tossed in jail, or lose his passport and money and be at the mercy of foreign governments. I am counting on you not to rat me out. I have my reputation at stake. If he asks, I will say, “Me, worry? When have I ever worried about you?” You don’t think my quivering chin and my death grip on his shirttail will give me away, do you?

The guest speaker at this year’s Memorial Day celebration at La Colonia Community Park then urged the crowd to instill “the fires of patriotism” in today’s youth. “Tell youngsters how much you love this country and how you would do whatever is necessary to maintain our rights and freedoms,” said Thompson, who served for 21 years as a flight nurse with the United States Air Force. “We have a responsibility to teach our youth so the next generation will feel that patriotism.” On hand for the annual event, co-hosted by Solana Beach and the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 5431, were VFW members representing all branches of the military, current and former City Council members, the Camp Pendleton Young Marines, Solana Beach firefighters and area residents.

Council satisfied with proposed budget for 2011 By Bianca Kaplanek

SOLANA BEACH — Although a final budget for the upcoming fiscal year won’t be presented until June 23, council members discussed a proposed document at the May 26 meeting that has the city’s general fund looking at a deficit of approximately $500,000. A proposition on the June 8 ballot asks voters if they will support implementation of a business tax that is expected to generate approximately $500,000 of additional revenue. Total general fund revenues are estimated at $13,066,000. Property taxes, which account for 40 percent of revenue, are projected to be a little more than $5.2 million.

City Council on board for wayside horn installation By Bianca Kaplanek

DEL MAR — A group of residents attempting to reduce train noise received council approval at the May 17 meeting to seek funding for the $160,000 project. The Quiet Zone Committee, led by long-time Del Mar resident Hershell Price, conducted a test April 22 to determine if a stationary wayside horn system would be an effective and affordable way to temper train noise. After receiving nothing but positive input, the group canceled a follow-up workshop and went directly to City Council for approval to move forward. With that in hand, securing private donations will now be easier, committee member Lee Stein said. Once there is a funding commitment, staff can begin confirming costs and securing contracts for items such as the horns, the inventory to support them and monthly maintenance, which will be provided by North County Transit District, City Manager Karen Brust said. “I do not see any obstacles if we have the funding in place and the support of the committee,” she said. Public Works Director David Scherer said all rail lines that use the tracks will have to be on board with the project but he didn’t foresee any problems either. Representatives from NCTD, Amtrak, the Federal Railroad Administration and the California Public Utilities Commission all said they supported the wayside horns after witnessing the test. Federal regulations support the use of wayside horns so no special approval is needed at that level, however, installation must meet federal standards, Scherer said. No one attended from Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway, which runs the freight trains, Scherer said. The citizens committee has been looking at ways to reduce train noise since about 2006. Early on the city considered installing a quiet-zone gate but that option was quickly abandoned because of a $1 million price tag. Recently the group began researching wayside horns, which provide an audible warning to motorists and pedestrians that a train is approaching. A signal from the track circuit warning system is sent to wayside horns permanently mounted at the TURN TO HORN ON 27

the amount of cotinine in their bloodstream. Cotinine is what remains in the bloodstream after nicotine from tobacco smoke is metabolized. It is used as an indicator for exposure to tobacco smoke. Although normally restaurant patrons don’t have six-hour long lunches or dinners, this is the typical shift for a waiter or waitress. Reducing or eliminating the exposure at work can mean less sick time used by staff and therefore less expense to the owner of the restaurant. Smoke-free patios will protect workers’ health building upon the 1995 indoor smoking ban in bars and restaurants.

Top 10 tastes for the first half of 2010 My approach to wine is always enjoy the best … one sip at a time. This year to date has been fascinating in the sense that wineries up and down the price spectrum have made themselves accessible to the consumer. Wines that have been resting on their past laurels can no longer count on the past to keep themselves on top. Leaner, quality operations want their share of the market so they outreach every opportunity they get. My coverage of wine events sharply increased the last six months, in step with a sharp increase in the excellent end of the tasting scale. In a recent column, I concluded that wines that sell for more do so because their wines truly taste like premium wines. You do get what you pay for, and sales in the higher end of the wine world are beginning to get their customer base back. I rate wines on a one to five “bad to excellent” scale. Best price to value and availability are favored. The Top 10 Tastes are listed alphabetically. I rated all 10 an excellent. Prices are suggested retail based on prices I have paid or website cart prices. — Catena Bodega Zapata Cabernet Sauvignon, Argentina, 2006. Cost is $18.99.

The evening honored its B’nai Mitzvah tutors Hillary Liber, Barbara Pardo, Janet Rosenfield and Judy Sperling. Members and friends came together to celebrate with a very special tribute to them for their joy of teaching and dedication to hundreds of students over thousands of hours. “There is nothing quite like enabling someone to achieve a meaningful task, to give them the self confidence and skills required to succeed,” Rabbi David Kornberg said. “These four women do that every day, and they do it with care, love of Judaism, and a passion for teaching.” Above left, Congregation Beth Am B’nai Mitzvah tutor honorees Janet Rosenfield, Barbara Pardo, Judy Sperling and Hillary Liber thank the crowd with a song especially written for the evening.

With that the crowd burst into applause. “God is good!” added Kush. “And we give Him all the glory.” From that moment forward the night was all about the students.

Homemade powdered eggs not the best idea

Dear Sara: Can you make powdered eggs at home? — Donna, Michigan

Dear Donna: I don’t make them at home. I’ve read about ways to do it, which involved cooking them scrambled in a frying pan, breaking them up, spreading onto a baking sheet and baking at 135 F for 10 hours or using a dehydrator and then processing them in a food processor. It doesn’t seem safe, practical or cost effective to me. Dehydrator books and experts tell people not to do it, too. You can buy a No. 10 can of powdered eggs that are pasteurized, rapidly heated and dried without cooking the egg that can be used for cooking and baking. Just add water. According to Wikipedia, the process of spray drying for making powdered eggs is the same as when making powdered milk. The advantages are

An amazing view and dining experience at Twenty/20 The dining experience at Twenty/20 was so complete and thoroughly enjoyable, I don’t even know where to start. But since our first impression was the spectacular panoramic ocean view from the Sheraton Carlsbad Resort & Spa, let’s go there first. It really is a beautiful Mediterranean-style restaurant, with a huge indoor-outdoor space offering an extensive patio complete with fireplace, which is one of the most sought-after tables for cocktails, happy hour and a sunset dinner. General Manager and Executive Chef Reed

DAVID BOYLAN Lick the Plate Anderson greeted us and presented a table that offered great indoor and outdoor views. Chef Reed is a graduate of the New England Culinary Institute and has spent time in the kitchens at Lulu and Fleur de Lys in San Francisco. He also ventured to Sienna, Italy, where he spent a year cooking in three wellrespected restaurants. Chef Reed is a member

of the Slow Food movement, an organization dedicated to protecting the heritage of food, tradition and culture by opposing food processes that are harmful to humans, animals or the environment. He is also a crowd pleaser as he cooks at the Twenty/20 Thursday Tapas nights on the restaurant’s patio. Chef Reed is backed by a strong supporting cast including Chef Steven Patrick who has an impressive resume himself. The kitchen sources sustainable and organic locally grown produce and artisan producers are interviewed continually to provide the hotel with naturally raised

meats and fish, tomatoes and fresh greens, herbs, cheeses and other locally grown food items. The hotel’s kitchen team practices sustainable cooking and the resort is kept in the “green zone” with naturally raised beef and lamb, using only nonthreatened fish and seafood from countries with sustainable water and fishing practices. French and California influences create a Coastal California menu driven by the freshest of the season with the menu changing seasonally We also had one of the best servers I’ve encountered in North County in Ron Whittaker.

the American culture, the students stay with volunteer host families. Being a host family is a great opportunity for the whole family to get cultural exchange, share the student’s daily discovery of the U.S. and develop a lifelong friendship without having to make a long-term commitment. The students are between 12 and 18 years old, bring their own spending money and are fully insured. They have classes in the mornings, activities in the afternoons and sometimes on the weekends, which means they have a busy schedule already. What they need from the families is a bed, three meals per day and a caring environment to come home to.

JUNE 4, 2010

The birds, the bees and the ticking biological clock Women, they have this thing … the familiar sound goes “tick, tick, tick.” Do you know what I’m talking about? If you’re a man, you probably don’t. However, if you happen to be one of those women in the mid- to late 30s like me, you can hear the sound of the clock hanging over your head. It’s your internal clock. You know, that loud biological one that makes women leap into any man’s arms during those critical two to three days of the month? Maybe I went through the baby thing at an early age. While most women in their 20s just wanted to party, follow their careers and waited to marry later, my Midwestern roots had me convinced I was already an old maid. As you might have guessed, I did marry young, and I had a son before I was 30. Now as life presents new chapters, with new adventures, I am at the end of my 30s looking head on into adulthood, newly married a second time, with another clock now … ticking for a second time. OK, babies. I love them. I really do. I wasn’t one of those pleasant pregnant women that went around with rosyred cheeks with the perfect glow. No. I was big, fat and pregnant. If you looked at me sideways you would’ve thought of a refrigerator, because that’s how wide I was. Not some delicate Ranch mom with skinny bird legs, and a perfect “pop belly.” Why I had to be an unusually fat pregnant woman, I don’t know. The good news is I’m somewhat vain. If I gain weight, I have been able to drop it fast at the sight of my body looking like a deep freeze. Thank goodness I’m fairly athletic. So don’t worry, if you think I’m going to pull a “Jillian Michaels” and adopt a baby because I don’t want to subject my body to another pregnancy, you’re wrong. I did have one of those “desperate housewife” moments over the weekend, when I had a funny conversation with one of my other female counterparts. My girlfriend and I were discussing how soon does a woman need to have a child before it’s too late? Here was basically our discussion on the phone, beginning with my girlfriend’s first erroneous statement: “You know if you don’t have a baby by the time you’re 35, your eggs dry up.” I remind her I have a 10year-old. “That equation doesn’t apply to me though, I have had a baby, and that’s not even true anyway.” “Jackson is now 10. How old are you?” My girlfriend knows my age and if you read my column, you know that I just turned 39 as I tell her on the phone. “Well, you better stop waiting. What are waiting for?” This is truly a sensitive question. If you’ve ever been married, you know what the first two years are like. The dreaded baby question follows you everywhere you go.

MACHEL PENN SHULL Machel’s Ranch “We going to start trying next year,” I tell her with ease. “If I were you, I better get with it. You’re not getting any younger.” Then we segue into discussing Botox and how I haven’t used it. Although, ask me in another 10 years. I guess if I have to suffer through the chimes and dings of the biological clock once again for the man I love, I will. Women must bear what they can and when they can. Because in the end, it’s not about a clock, a sound or what your friends may think or how you feel your life should be defined. You make your own story. I believe in being bold, funny, and most of all, I believe in the miracle of women and babies and friends and the possibility that there is hope around every corner.

Around Town On May 15, Kids Korps held their swanky gala at the beautiful estate of John and Patricia Queen in Rancho Santa Fe. Conseiller Culinaire was none other than our very own Ranch resident Bertrand Hug, owner of Mille Fleurs and Mister A’s. Sometimes life repeats itself and a picture of Maggie Bobbileff with Denise Hug happened to be one of my favorites that I had snapped from the cocktail mixer in the early afternoon. I just had to share it in my column for this issue. This Super Star Gala is definitely on the must attend list in Rancho Santa Fe. For information on Kids Korps USA, visit www.kidskorps.org. Later that evening, I met my good friend Krista Lafferty at the Del Mar Plaza, along with some of our other friends to help celebrate Ms. Lafferty’s birthday. You might recognize Krista as one of The Coast News Group’s very own. She is one of the advertising representatives who has played a significant role in the developing the world-class Health Care Series for The Coast News. This section features North County doctors located in the heart of Encinitas. I have included a photo of Krista in her tiara sitting next to the Ranch’s famous piano man, Randy Beecher. That Billy Joel song comes to mind. Also featured here are Tracy Justice and Jon Russo. Happy birthday to a friend who deserves for her birthday dreams to come true. On May 21, I was thrilled to receive an invitation from one of Tommy V’s owner’s Charles Parisi to a fabulous sit-down dinner with the San Diego Italian Film Festival. As everyone has been waiting with baited breath to find out what will be moving into the old Flyght location, we now have that answer — Tommy V’s. I had the privilege of receiving a private tour of the newly renovated restaurant and a sneak peak at the menu. Let’s just say the sophisticated residents will

love this new addition, located right in the center of the “wealth triangle” right across from the Polo Fields. Friday night my husband and I were guests at Charles’ table. We sat and enjoyed a five-course sit down menu with the finest wines from Tommy V’s personal winery in Sicily. What you may not know is the Food Network has already picked up 10 episodes on owner Tomaso Maggiore’s family. The rumor mill had it they would be there on Friday shooting for their reality show, but I think we just missed them. Congrats to Tomaso Maggiore, Charles Parisi, and Tony Renda on their hot new restaurant location that has already opened. For more information, check out their website at www.tommyvdelmar.com. I am sure you will be reading more coverage of this new hotspot in “Machel’s Ranch.” On May 22, my husband Robin and I had dinner with his grandparents, Eddie and Dottie McCrink at Mille Fleurs. This just happened to be my father’s birthday, too. So the stars felt aligned, while I sat and dined with my new family by marriage. I had the most delightful conversation with Dottie about all of her worldly travels, the Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club and how she and Eddie met at in an art class in New Jersey, which sounded absolutely romantic. I felt so incredibly lucky to have found such wonderful family that has embraced my son, Jackson and myself. Dreams do come true. They just happen a little later in life for some of us such as myself and now I understand that old adage, “patience is a virtue.” Thank you Ed and Dottie for all of your heartwarming conversation, and for treating Robin and I to a wonderful evening. Later that night, I ran into songbird Sacha Boutros at Randy Beecher’s 17th anniversary at Mille Fleurs. This week’s summer hat feature hat is none other than Sacha Boutros. Thanks Sacha for looking so fabulous so I could capture this gorgeous photo for the paper. Ranch residents also have their “piano man” they can count on each week, Thursday through Saturday from 8 p.m. till close. What’s wonderful about Randy is he loves the regulars, makes new guests

Football Monday ready to tee off CARMEL VALLEY — Keeping with Torrey Pines High School tradition, the Falcon Football Monday golf classic will be held June 28 at the Rancho Santa Fe Farms Country Club, 8500 St. Andrews Road. Heading up this year’s event are Ed and Kathy Cuff along with Jeff and Bernadette Fargo. Additional committee members are Mark Bath, Nina Detrow, Kellie Doyle, George Stratigopoulos, Richard Ross, Chris Jaczko, Dena Yocom and John and Donna Wilson.

In Wolf’s car, police found a blow gun, a slingshot and a bucket of rocks, and after questioning, Wolf told police that she just “liked to hear people say ‘ouch.’” — Lame: (1) The reason career criminal Kevin Polwart gave for his brief February escape from New Zealand’s Auckland Prison was to demonstrate that he posed no threat to society on the outside (and thus that he should be parolled). (Instead, authorities added nine months to his sentence.) (2) A judge in Scotland went lenient on George McIntosh, 53, who had been convicted of embezzling the equivalent of about $87,000 from two pro golfing organizations. McIntosh claimed that his medication for Parkinson’s disease had made him “compulsive(ly)” generous so that he needed to embezzle money in order to buy gifts for his friends.

The Litigious Society — In April, George Black’s lawsuit to be compensated for his injuries was permitted to proceed to trial, following an Ontario Superior Court decision.

for failing to put up any kind of shade to block the late afternoon sun. — Melanie Shaker filed a lawsuit recently against the Fases Salon in Chicago for her 2008 injuries, which she incurred when she fell through the salon’s front window and badly slashed herself. She fell after losing her balance while attempting to kick her husband during a quarrel along Sheffield Avenue following dinner (and, of course, drinks). Shaker suffered deep cuts to her arm, back and feet, which she now says was the salon’s fault in that they had neglected to use “safety glass” in their front window, which would not have shattered into glass shards. — Jo Ann Fonzone’s fouryear quest to divorce the rock singer David Lee Roth (of Van Halen) continues, according to a May report in the Morning Call of Allentown, Pa. Roth, through his publicist, denied any connection whatsoever to Fonzone, who has filed nearly two dozen lawsuits against various people who she claims have done her wrong, including Hollywood executive Cary Woods and MTV CEO Judy McGrath, who each has been accused of trying to steal Fonzone’s identity. Judges have noted that Fonzone’s claims are unaccompanied by any “evidence” (such as a marriage license to Roth, or even photographs of the “couple” together), and most judges who have heard her claims regard the lawsuits as “frivolous.” Said a court records

chief of Fonzone’s prolific filings, “When (the clerks) see her, they all want to run.” Fonzone actually has a law degree, from Western State University in Fullerton, Calif.

I Demand My Rights In April, warehouse workers at the Copenhagen, Denmark, brewery that makes Carlsberg beer went on strike after the company cut back on its allowance of providing up to three free beers per shift, which workers thought made their mundane jobs easier to take. As of April 1, only one beer per shift was provided, and only at lunch. (The previous “right” belonged also to delivery drivers, according to a Reuters report, but it was not clear how that right squared with drunk-driving laws.)

Least Competent Criminals Not Ready for Prime Time: (1) John Campana, 18, was detained by police after they found him with several pieces of expensive jewelry in Gainesville, Fla. As they were questioning him about where he got the jewelry, Campana (according to the police report) started shaking and sweating, and then fainted. (He was charged several days later with burglary.) (2) Jason Robinson, 22, was arrested at a Burger King in Pine Bluff, Ark., in May after robbing the restaurant manager at gunpoint. As the manager handed over the day’s proceeds, Robinson set his gun down on a counter to grab the money. Not surprisingly, the

People With Issues Recurring Theme: Police in Austin, Texas, executing a search warrant in May, discovered an elaborate, three-story tunnel complex extending as far as 35 feet underground, beneath the home of Jose Del Rio, 70, which he apparently dug over at least a two-year period. Police also found 19 guns, plus ammunition, batteries and compressed gas (which presented a serious safety hazard). The property showed signs of caving in and posed a threat to adjacent property, as well. Police noted that Del Rio (who neighbors said “kept to himself”) was cooperative during the search although he offered no particular explanation for the tunnels.

An Odd Files (April 1994) The New York Daily News reported in April (1994) on a cellblock fight between prominent New York mass murderers Colin Ferguson and Joel Rifkin while they were awaiting trials at the Nassau County jail. (They were later convicted.) Reportedly, Ferguson was using a telephone and told Rifkin to be quiet. According to the Daily News source, Ferguson told Rifkin, “I wiped out six devils (white people), and you only killed women.” Rifkin allegedly responded, “Yeah, but I had more victims.” Ferguson then allegedly punched Rifkin in the mouth.

Quintet of artists host show through June 6 LA JOLLA — La Jolla Art Association announced “Visual Variations 2010” at its gallery at 8100 Paseo Del Ocasa through June 6. The gallery will be open from noon to 6 p.m. most days and by appointment. The art exhibit showcases five award-winning San Diego artists: Jeffrey R. Brosbe, Dana Levine, Caroline Morse, Gwen Nobil, and John Valois. The title of the exhibition refers to each artist’s unique vision, ranging from the abstract to the realistic, from black and white to intense color, and from high impact to quiet contemplation. No matter what the stylistic differences, all the images in the show leave a lasting impression on the viewer. “As an artist and a scientist I can tell you that art and science are not an unlikely combination,” Levine said. “Both strive to see nature with a fresh eye. In my work, I explore the inner richness of nature and the human form in a visual medium, looking for the structure beneath the surface using the original colors our eyes combine together. My style is impressionism; my ideas expressed in pigments and through the camera lens.” Caroline Morse’s style is representational and focuses mainly on landscapes and the figure. Her paintings

are interpretive realism with an emphasis on color, space and light. She seeks to capture energy and emotion, combining substance and meaning with aesthetics. “I have turned to the world of art as means of expression,” Valois said. “The flexibility and range of possibilities afforded by the digital medium are truly amazing and an excellent means for expressing one’s creative ideas and feelings.”

s an artist and scientist, I can tell you that art and science are not an unlikely combination.”


— Dana Levine


“Capturing the moment in an outdoor setting is one of my favorite ways of painting,” Nobil said. “I like the challenge of plein air painting: changing light, shadows, weather — all combine to push the artist to a higher level of concentration than might otherwise take place.” Brosbe’s images are fine art photographic prints in extremely limited editions. He considers the creation of an image the same as the creation of a Haiku. “It should be whole and meaningful in itself while providing greater insight when pondered further,” he said. Call Dana at (858) 4900470 to make an appointment. For more information, visit www.lajollaart.org or e-mail danabet@yahoo.com.

Learn from the ladies of San Diego’s past SAN DIEGO — The seventh annual Ladies Day in Old Town San Diego State Historic Park will celebrate the everyday joys, activities and challenges of the women that lived in early San Diego from 1821 to 1872.This year’s event takes place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 12 and is named “Daring, Delightful & Determined Women: A Day with the Ladies of Old Town.” “Ladies Day in Old Town will showcase activities that are educational as well as fun for both kids and adults,” said Deanna Turton, volunteer chair of the event. “People will walk away knowing what it was like to live in San Diego in the early to mid-1800s.” The plaza will contain volunteers and decedents from Old Town performing living history demonstrations, such as a variety of 19th century games and crafts, historic hair dressing, historic dancing, soap making, basket weaving, crochet-

ing and lace making. There will be a garden tour as well as live entertainment and free refreshments. Volunteers will also be showing clothing from the time period and how to do laundry by hand. Throughout the day, there will be a silent auction to benefit Boosters of Old Town and its mission to support the Old Town San Diego State Historic Park. Historic dancing will continue in the evening at the Barra Barra Saloon. The celebration takes place right outside Barra Barra, in the northeast section of Old Town San Diego State Historic Park, at the corner of Wallace and Calhoun streets. Many of the shops and museums within the state park will have special activities as part of the Ladies Day celebration. Free parking is available in the CalTrans headquarters on Taylor Street, one block from the event site.

Are Pap tests necessary after hysterectomy? DR. GOTT Second Opinion

Dear Dr. Gott: I had ovarian cancer and had a complete hysterectomy two years ago. My cancer was in the first stage, and, thankfully, I did not need chemo or radiation. My surgeon continues to schedule me for Pap smears/internal exams yearly and says I will need to have this done for the rest of my life, but I don’t understand why. When I ask him, he gets short with me and says to “look it up on the Internet.” This does not make sense to me. Even my family doctor was surprised that I must continue to have Pap smears after having a complete hysterectomy. Can you shed some light on this? Thank you.

Dear Reader: First things first. Find another surgeon/gynecologist. A huffy attitude and saying “Look it up on the Internet” is never an appropriate response to a concerned patient’s question, especially one who has a diagnosis of cancer. All patients deserve respect and simple politeness. Physicians dealing with cancer patients should realize this above all others because of the justified high emotions often associated with the diagnosis. Now, onto your question. There are two types of hysterectomy: total and partial (also known as supracervical). A partial hysterectomy removes the uterus and leaves the cervix intact. A total hysterectomy removes both the uterus and the cervix. In each procedure, the ovaries and fallopian tubes may be removed as TURN TO SECOND OPINION ON 22

ance will wrap up a recordbreaking season for the Torrey Pines Dance Team, which made its best showing ever in April during the Dance Nationals in Anaheim. With its rendition of Austin Powers, the team placed second in the “Open Character Dance” category. Dozens of teams from across the country participated in the event. The competition marked the first time that Torrey Pines had competed in the championship division of the national competition. The team was eligible to compete at that level after a strong finish at regional trials in March. Dancers brought home a tall trophy. “Torrey Pines is a creative hotbed and our many talents will be on display at the Expression Session,” Kaye said.

well, depending on the reason for the hysterectomy. I assume your “complete” hysterectomy is a total one. Also, because of your ovarian cancer, it is a given that your ovaries and fallopian tubes would have been removed as well, since they were the source of the cancer and the reason for undergoing the procedure. Treatment for ovarian cancer often begins with surgery to remove the ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterus, nearby lymph nodes and a fold of fatty abdominal tissue. Tissue and abdominal fluid samples are also taken to determine the stage of cancer and if additional treatments may be required. Depending on the results, chemotherapy and/or radiation are typically ordered. This is especially true for more advanced cases. Unless you had a partial hysterectomy, a Pap smear, which tests for cervical cancer, doesn’t make any sense because you don’t have a cervix. However, because I am neither a gynecologist nor a surgeon, I must defer a final answer to the specialists. Find a gynecologist with whom you feel comfortable. You can even make a “get acquainted” visit to determine whether he or she is someone you truly wish to see. Once you have found the specialist of your choice, provide him or her with your medical records. Then sit down to dis-

cuss what type of hysterectomy you had, the type of testing you should undergo to monitor your ovarian cancer until you enter remission, and whether Pap smears are necessary in your case. Also, remember to eat well, exercise, get plenty of rest, and keep stress to a minimum to increase and/or maintain your quality of life. This may also help with any symptoms of menopause, such as hot flashes, mood swings, weight gain, and more, that you may be experiencing following your hysterectomy. Dear Dr. Gott: My sister suffered from headaches for several years. When my brother visited her, he checked around her home and found mold underneath the house. She moved, and the cluster headaches have disappeared. I just thought you would like to let your readers know about this as it may help others who suffer from these awful headaches. Dear Reader: Mold growth in homes can cause a plethora of symptoms, depending on the type of mold. Most often it is associated with cold-like or allergylike respiratory symptoms, but headaches are definitely possible. I don’t know that your sister should have moved. There are several ways that mold can be removed from a home. If she was renting, the landlord also has a responsi-

a suspicious vehicle parked in the 500 block of Rose Street. As the officer walked up to the tan Honda Accord, the vehicle sped away and the pursuit began, according to testimony. Authorities said the Honda had been stolen two days earlier from a San Diego police detective who had stopped for coffee in Chula Vista. At the time of the car theft, the detective’s semi-automatic handgun and shotgun were in the vehicle. As Escondido police officers began pursuing Pomatto through the city, he started firing at them. “My windshield explodes, then there was a lot of dust in my car and I look down to see a whole in my windshield,” Officer Ryan Banks testified. Banks said that bullet grazed the right shoulder of his uniform, while another shot blew out one of his marked patrol car’s tires. During the chase, which ended without incident in the parking lot of On the Border restaurant at the Westfield North County Fair mall, police testified Pomatto fired out his window at the pursuing patrol vehicles and through the sunroof at a police helicopter that was following the chase from the air. Sgt. Don Shumate testified he believed Pomatto was “laying in wait” several times during the chase because he said the defendant slowed to a stop around corners as if to open fire on the officers as the came around the bend. Shumate said he was just waiting for the bullets to come through his windshield. Police never returned fire at Pomatto, according to witness testimony. Pomatto faces up to 158 years in prison if convicted of all the charges. His next scheduled court appearance is this month. Last November, Pomatto was convicted in Butte County of two felony counts of making criminal threats.

habitat with all sorts of birds, fish and shellfish, all native to the habitat. Stewart said each student drew their own rocky seashore on a piece of paper. He then took elements out of each student’s artwork, copied it, and placed it properly in the habitat. Then each class got to paint their own banner. “I never thought the sun would have red polka dots, but I love it,” Stewart said.

Open Space,” which will focus on environmental sustainability, reforestation and open space acquisitions. Under the heading of “Public Safety,” the plan is to design and construct a new patrol facility, to prepare for disasters and wildfire, fire prevention and communication to notify residents of impending danger. In the “Infrastructure and Utilities,” category, the directors want to look at better broadband access, utility availability such as extending natural gas lines, overhead utilities and extending sewer service. They also want to



luggage to avoid paying baggage fees and the hassle of waiting at baggage claim. As you lift heavy objects, try to hold them close to your chest; bend your knees, not your back; and reposition your entire body, rather than twisting or reaching as you lift. — Move around. Walk the airplane’s aisles about once an hour and frequently flex your ankles and knees when you’re in your seat to reduce the risk of blood clots in the legs, which can cause a life-threatening lung embolism. — Mind your diet. Diarrhea, the most common

review options for trash collection, propane purchases and mail costs. The category also includes looking in to procuring additional playing fields. Under “Circulation,” they will look at traffic, to reduce cut-through trips. Roundabouts will also be considered along with intersection improvements. Efforts should continue to obtain additional segments or trails and provide ongoing maintenance. The board also wants to review existing committees, review association facilities and look for opportunities to partner or work with other organizations. The long-range plan-

ning began in 1990 when the Association established the Rancho 2000 Task Force to prepare the first planning document. Ten years later in 2000, the Association again established a committee to prepare a subsequent longrange plan. Now the 2010 Task Force prioritized the top three topics as traffic, political involvement and open space. After a mini-retreat in January, additional topics discussed were broadband access, a new patrol facility and environmental sustainability. The next step will be to name a committee to write a planning document.

In those areas, avoid unpasteurized dairy products, tap water, ice cubes made with tap water, and raw produce unless you peel it. — Be safe in the sun. Avoid sitting out too long under the sun’s potent rays. When you’re out there, shield your eyes with sunglasses, wear a widebrimmed hat, and protect your skin by using a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. — Tread tides carefully. When you’re at the shore, be alert to any warnings about rough tides. Don’t ever swim alone and swim only when

there is a lifeguard present. — Avoid seasickness. To get some relief from motion sickness, try closing your eyes or gazing at a faraway, stationary object. To feel better overall, move to the boat’s center, where the waves might not feel as rocky. — Wash up. Perhaps the most notorious hazards on board cruise ships are infectious diseases, respiratory illnesses in particular. If there’s an outbreak, don’t shake hands, and wash your hands frequently with soap and water or use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol.

several years, in early April the Local Agency Formation Commission, or LAFCO, allowed the Association, working with the Community Services District, to activate its latent powers, which now allows the formation of assessment districts to fund the project.

The next step to raise community awareness of the possibility will be to mail a survey to determine how much interest there is, Holler said. “I think it is a good idea to get a reading,” said Bill Beckman, board president. Holler said the projects will take several years and will play out in phases, with neighborhoods stepping forward, forming assessment districts

for themselves. There will be a process that will start when property owners submit a petition to establish an assessment district to the community services district, which eventually helps them design the project. They pay only for as much as they benefit and can have it either added to their property tax bill or they can pay it all up front.

the difference between sacrifice and service. “Sacrifice is something we have to do,” she said. “Service is something we get to do or can do. In life, we all have chances to do

both.” She said she hoped more people would opt for service. “I am so proud to be an American,” she said in conclusion. “I love this country.”

This year students chose to fund a $20,000 concrete patio in the quad area where they like to hang out that was plagued with drainage and mud problems. The students took in more than enough to cover the project cost. For the guys in Boomroasted, who took the name from TV’s “The Office,” the project started off on a disappointing note that got worse before it got better. Their first choice for a business was taken and two other groups

were selling pizza, their second choice. “We got stuck with something we didn’t want to do so much,” said Jason Anthony, who teamed up with Brett Buchanan, Ryan O’Rourke, Karl Holmlund, Hunter Ross and Andy Huang. They finally decided on Starbucks coffee and bagels in the morning and coffee drinks and candy at lunch. To increase profits, the guys created breakfast packages that they delivered to businesses from Mira Mesa to Carlsbad. “The first day was chaos,” O’Rourke said. “Three of the six guys were out delivering and people were lining up here. The toasters shorted out the electricity and we couldn’t toast the bagels.” “On day two we had to revise things,” Anthony said.

“Every day we were learning something different. It was a lot of work but incredibly fun to be working with lifetime friends and have our leadership skills come together and unify as a group.” Even after providing complimentary coffee and bagels to all faculty and staff members, an informal survey had Boomroasted with the highest profits — about $4,200 — with only one day left to sell. Most other groups had barely broken the $1,000 mark. “It’s a lot of work to put on this big event,” said Jon Wallace, the economics and government teacher who has been overseeing the decadesold project for the past seven years. “But it’s fun to watch them succeed and fail and learn through both.”

telling the audience he believed a cooperative approach with federal agencies was the appropriate way to handle border crimes in San Diego County. Gore, who spent 32 years with the FBI, said he believed the sheriff’s department’s use of immigration officers in the county’s jail to screen all incoming inmates is a great example of the two agencies working hand in hand. “Let them do their job in our facilities, and if these people are in the country illegally put an immigration hold on them,” Gore said.

shrimp. I should mention that our server Ron paired a perfect Four Graces Pinot Blanc from Dundee Hills region of Oregon. And he paired the wine perfectly with every dish. We were dying to try the house-made potato gnocchi but did not want to commit to it as an entrée. The chef obliged and split a portion between us and it was really, really good with wild mushrooms, green asparagus, Valdivia Farms tomatoes and goat cheese. Crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside, it took gnocchi to another level. We went for the surf and turf with a

Brandt Farms filet mignon and a butter poached Maine lobster and the roasted Berkshire pork loin that came with smoked pork rolls. Both entrées were perfect and the highlight of the evening was still to come. The parfait sampler is the only dessert option but there are six different parfaits presented in a desert tree stand that displays them beautifully. Pick the parfait you want, take it off the stand, and that’s your desert. Twenty/20 is a North County gem that local residents need to experience.

to sound the train horn. “The engineers of each of the trains still will have the option to blow the horns and ... if there’s pedestrians in the right of way they’ll be blowing,” Scherer said. In addition to positive input following the April test that included unanimous endorsement from the nearby Ocean Windows condominium association, a handful of speakers told council members they supported the project. “We may as well move

forward with it and let them work on getting the dough so we can get it done and sleep better at night,” resident Edward Yuskiewicz said. Council members agreed. “This is a great idea,” Councilman Don Mosier said. “The technology works and it will be perfectly safe and it will benefit our citizens. “I ... want to express my appreciation for this committee solving a long-standing problem by finding a much better technology than something that was invented a cen-

tury and a half ago — pulling your whistle on your train.” “What a wonderful solution,” Councilwoman Crystal Crawford said. “This is a wonderful effort on the part of our residents, who are smart and dedicated and don’t understand the word no.We appreciate that because then it means we have this wonderful opportunity.” Mayor Richard Earnest also supports the project but said he made it clear to the committee “there was no city money for this.”

There is berry pie and crème brulee made onsite and gourmet desserts imported from The Cheesecake House in Lake Elsinore. The meat department boasts quail, apple wood smoked bacon, Cordon Bleau, veal scallopini and a variety of fresh sausage links. “No one can touch our tri-tip,” Najjar said. “We may seem more expensive because we carry better meat but our prices are com-

parable to Vons and Albertsons.” The market offers their own line of condiments such as cherry merlot wine sauce and demi glace. “If a local person has their own brand of barbecue sauce, we’ll carry it,” he added. Najjar is planning to “push out the walls” to make room for new product lines and is deliberating on a number of ideas. “A lot of people who are under 50 travel a lot,” he said. “When they return they have drink and food flavors they want to recreate but

can’t find. We want to carry it for them.” Word-of-mouth has proven to be the most effective advertising. “Our best PR is from a cashier at another store who is asked, ‘Where can you get this?’” Najjar said. “He’ll respond, ‘Seaside Market.’” Despite the store’s success, Najjar has no plans for expansion. “We’re staying in one location,” he explained. “When you live and work in a community, you’re tied to it. Cardiff businesses really support each other. Everybody is friends and neighbors.”

focused on the past. I want to celebrate her legacy as it relates to the present and future of architecture.” The June 12 event will showcase photographs and recreations of Rice’s architectural renderings and floor plans that appear in the book. They were designed by artists, architects and draftsmen who will be in attendance to present their work and answer questions. Contributors include Bertocchini Photography, Paul Body, Gary Conaughton, Darren Edwards, Christopher Real, Monique Parsons, Vanessa Vanbeusekom, Sara Motamedi and Carol Beth Rodriguez. In total the book includes 224 pages with 394 images, most of which are color plates. Many are vintage photographs from private collections donated by the Spurr, Ragan and Clotfelter families to name a few. A biography of Rice might never have been written had it not been for the

tenacity of Welch with the blessing of Miriam Sellgren, a direct descendant, by marriage, of Lilian Rice’s brother, John Clinton Rice. “We endorse Diane wholeheartedly as Rice’s official biographer due to the thorough nature of her research, her passion for, and her clear understanding of, Rice’s life and work, and her willingness to generously share this information with the world,” Sellgren said. Initial response from readers has been positive. “Your book is a masterpiece!” said Phyllis Paul, committee member for the restoration of the Osuna Adobe in Rancho Santa Fe. “Your labors and trials culminated in a poignant tribute to Lilian and I am sure she is acknowledging such from her architectural throne in heaven.” Some might speculate that it was synchronicity that Welch would become Rice’s biographer more than 70 years after her death. It was in 2005 that Welch

happened upon the architect while researching the history of the San Dieguito Academy for a newspaper article she was writing. “I discovered that Rice had also designed the Ecke’s ranch home in 1936, and I began to realize the significance of this woman’s place in history,” she remembers. Welch wrote an entry in her journal dated June 12, 2005, “A book needs to be written about this architect and I’m going to write that book.” Subsequently Welch discovered that the date was Rice’s birthday. Later Schiffer Books set a deadline of Dec. 22, 2009, for the completed manuscript, which is the anniversary of Rice’s death in 1938. In an unforeseen coincidence Rice’s day of birth and the day she died marked the beginning and the end of the project. For more information or to purchase a book online, visit www.Lilianjrice.com. The book is also available on Amazon.com.

arrived. Construction of the two-story, 25,420-squarefoot main sanctuary and administration building was completed in early April. The project was delivered on time and on budget. Construction continues on the campus of the Village Church, with a remodel of an existing structure to be called the Kids Village. The building will house Sunday School classrooms. Also designed by domusstudio architecture and constructed by ROEL Construction Company, the remodel project for the 3,871-square-foot building includes re-roofing and adding new walls and restrooms. Completion is expected by the end of July. The church is also adding a new roof to The Village Nursery School, starting in midJune.

The architecture is distinguished by red tile roofs, arches, outdoor living rooms and patios. Her influence, however, extends beyond the Ranch to include designing the San Dieguito Academy and historic Paul Ecke Ranch in Encinitas as well as homes in Solana Beach, Del Mar, Pacific Beach, National City, Chula Vista, Talmadge, La Mesa, Escondido, El Cerrito and Riverside County. These projects reflect a breadth of preferences that include Tudor revival, English country, French country and Storybook-style architecture reminiscent of Disneyland and Hollywood. “Lilian Rice’s legacy is this beautiful architectural style that has been connected with the architectural fabric of Southern California,” Welch said. “We’ve been

She said the county will pay for the project which includes the realignment of the intersection, curb, gutter, sidewalk, replacing driveway connections and the conflicting utilities. Afterward, the Association will install landscaping. The project was conceptually approved by the Association in 2000 and later incorporated into the Village Streetscape plan. It will cost the county about $320,000.

FRANK & ERNEST by Bob Thaves

THE BORN LOSER by Art & Chip Sansom

BIG NATE by Lincoln Peirce

MONTY by Jim Meddick

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — There’s a chance that neither you nor a person with whom you’re presently involved will be completely forthright with one another. Compatibility can only be achieved through honesty. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Take nothing for granted when doing business with an unfamiliar firm or individual. If you are promised something big in return for your input, get it in writing first. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — It’s good to be hopeful, but it is more important to be realistic about a situation in which you find yourself. Crossing your fingers and/or guessing about the outcome could lead to failure. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Fretting about things that are likely to never happen is a lesson in futility. Instead of making feasible plans and acting on them, fear will merely impede any progress that could be made. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Understanding that you are not perfect enables you to laugh at yourself and/or your mistakes, but today you could have a tendency to take things far too seriously, which could lead to depression.

ARLO & JANIS by Jimmy Johnson


COW & BOY by Mark Leiknes

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Utilize your time productively, especially when it comes to your work or career. Making plans is good, but remember it is only part of the job. Execution is the essential element. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — You understand better than most that not everyone is likely to be in accord with your thinking, yet today you could blow a disagreement totally out of proportion. Get back in form. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Do your best not to get involved with any endeavor in which the management is taken out of your hands. It won’t be possible for you to stand by and not try to control matters. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Others will cooperate with you if you first show them that you are looking out for their interests as well. If you don’t give, don’t expect them to come through for you. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Large objectives can be achieved, but only if you persevere and are prepared to make the necessary sacrifices. Follow the old saying: “In order to get, you must first give.” ARIES (March 21-April 19) — It’s not like you, because you have your own trophies, but today you could be a trifle jealous of a friend who has done something to be applauded. Don’t let it show. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Don’t set goals for yourself that are beyond your capabilities. Make progress wherever you can, because even many small victories will add up to a lot.
