Tattoo artist helps breast cancer survivors By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — When a woman loses one or two breasts due to cancer, if she chooses breast reconstruction, the journey may be a long one. The last portion of the reconstruction is the nipple, and for some women, they may decide not to have another surgery but instead do something quite novel. And that’s where Vinnie Meyers walks through the door. Meyers, who has been featured on CNN and other media outlets for his unique work, recently visited Rancho Santa Fe to help women on the West Coast receive their nipple areola TURN TO MEYERS ON 17

RANCHO SANTA FE — The RSF Association’s acting manager Ivan Holler broached the subject of the Association’s legal costs to the board of directors. The Board unanimously agreed that a policy should be in place in regard to seeking legal advice and direction. “To help manage the legal cost some members have expressed an interest in establishing a policy that would address the board of directors’ access to legal counsel,” said Holler, referring to the staff report, which each board member had in front of them. Holler went on to say that the recommendation would essentially set up a process for a request for legal advice and also help in an attempt to avoid the duplication of information, which had already been sought in the past. In essence, the policy effort was to help manage legal costs. When reviewing the policy, Holler highlighted a few items. First, he explained, board members would make a request regarding “legal questions” to the Association’s manager. In many respects, the manager would be serving as a gatekeeper. Holler wanted the board members to know that the manager would set out do the initial research to see if the an-

present in its civil code, corporation’s code, or the association’s government documents. If acquired, Holler said staff would forward the appropriate code section to the board member who requested the information. Second, if the answer to the question were derived from a preexisting legal standpoint from the Association, this too, would be directed to the board member(s) making the inquiry. Another aspect Holler covered was if a board member’s question would require legal advice from the Association’s legal counsel. In this case, the manager would obtain such advice and forward the information. According to Holler, however, the latter scenario would come with provisions. “One would be that the manager has a discussion to present such requests for legal advice from one or two board members to the entire board in the executive session,” he said. Holler pointed out that the Association’s manger would not offer legal advice since they are not attorneys. “And then finally, that the Board may at any time, by voting to do so, seeks advice directly from legal counsel without making a request,” Holler said. “So TURN TO LEGAL COSTS ON 17

Superintendent presents school year update to board members RSF School By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — With the school year having started on Aug. 25, Superintendent Lindy Delaney presented a 2014-15 school year update to the board of trustees. Following President Richard Burdge’s call to order, Delaney gave the board several updates. “We are back and the teachers are back. We are off to a great start with great energy,” said Delaney, adding how many of the teachers were there earlier in the week. As she stood in front of the staff on Tuesday, she told the board, it was a nice feeling. Delaney pointed out how lucky the District has been with the RSF

Education Foundation championing Newcomer Pool Parties. While naming off some families who hosted festivities, Delaney mentioned how board of trustee member, Tyler Seltzer, hosted the kindergarten pool party. “These parties are a great way to welcome students and they get to meet a few new kids,” Delaney said. On the subject of the RSF Education Foundation, Delaney named off its new school year executive committee which included chair, Alexia Bregman; vice chairs Evan Malter, Jeff Symon and Shaunna Kahn; and secretary, Jan Shakiba. Delaney described members of the executive committee as taking

on a big commitment, while working on a grant of 1.3 million. According to Delaney the robotics program was making a change this year which included more staff which would have a one-time stipend approval. “We took the advice of many, and after several meetings of their input, decided to staff robotics with paid coaching, if you will, just like you do with athletics,” she said. “David (Warner) and John (Galipault) have done a great job cultivating, hiring, and looking for good people.” Delaney told the board that she thought its robotics program would be taking a big step. The Education Foundation, Delaney went on

to say, would be hosting the Newcomers’ BBQ’ at the end of the week in where parents and children could take a tour of the school and meet the teachers. “Just the fact they get to see their classroom and teachers makes them, especially younger students, feel better,” Delaney said. Delaney wanted everyone to know that The Education Foundation was also hosting a cocktail party for newcomer parents, which would be for adults only Sept. 5. Delaney also reported they added a fifth, 3rd grade classroom which was a good decision. “And for 1st grade, I am actually thrilled that we added that fourth classroom because we got

two new students today,” she said. Delaney also commended school principals Kim Pinkerton and Garrett Corduan for a phenomenal job the past week with being instruction leaders. The superintendent also briefly touched upon the Next Generation Science Standards, which are coming out this year for their review. “We will take a year with the science team to look at them and see how they fit. We may send a couple science teachers to conferences,” Delaney said. Toward the end of her report, Delaney concluded enrollment was right around 700 with a few packets still not turned in.

New campus building a boost for science By Aaron Burgin

ENCINITAS — For years, students attending MiraCosta College’s San Elijo campus would have to take traffic-filled commutes to the Oceanside campus for science courses required for their associate’s degrees. Come 7:30 a.m. Tuesday that all changes as officials celebrate the opening of the 4,700-square-foot science building on the South Encinitas campus. “There were a couple of reasons, but the main reason was that students who needed to take higher level science classes weren’t able to do so in the current labs, and had to drive up to Oceanside, so a lot of majors could not be completed at the Cardiff campus,” MiraCosta spokeswoman Cheryl Broom said. “We had to build the lab to allow students to take classes if they needed so they could stay at the San Elijo campus and get their degree done.” The $5.3 million building — paid for out of district reserves — accommodates a chemistry lab, general lab and a preparation lab, additional space for instruments, equipment and storage and an outdoor area for student gathering. It is the first new construction on the campus since the expansion of the student center in 2009. Broom said the additional classroom space will allow district officials to

schedule more science offerings at the lower campus. “Science labs are always in high demand,” Broom said. “This was the board of trustees top priority.” The labs were such a high priority that the district proceeded with the project using reserves — nearly 20 percent of the previous $22 million pot — to build it after a bond measure was defeated in 2012. District officials pointed out though, that the $17.3 million left in the reserves is higher than the board’s policy of an 8 percent reserves-to-budget ratio. Local residents and students are thrilled with the addition. Encinitas Councilwoman Teresa Barth, who graduated from the San Elijo campus in 1991, called the building a “great addition to the community.” “As an elected official, I always say that in Encinitas we have an incredible education system from pre-K to the community college level,” said Barth, who continues to support the campus’ goals. “I think it is great to see the San Elijo campus continue to expand and provide more classes to our local students in this area.” Broom said the campus should see more activity in 2015 when several of the campus’ older buildings are retrofitted.

RANCHO SANTA FE — FORE Magazine has been rating elite golf courses for years, and in its 2014 summer edition, they eyed RSF Golf Club for a feature article. This periodical is also the official publication of the Southern California Golf Association. Since the article, “Rancho Santa Fe’s New Day,” hit the stands, people are still talking about it. For Al Castro, the general manager at the RSF Golf Club, he thought the coverage was exciting. “It tied us back to being the first home of the Clambake, talked about its history and what we’re doing to perpetuate that legacy which Bing Crosby started in the mid-1930s,” Castro said. In addition to the history of it all, Castro was impressed with how the write-up highlighted the walkable course, underscored its challenging shots for competition, and noted how it was extremely playable for their members. “I think that’s really the magic formula to where we have the course be challenging enough to be considered one of the top ones in the area, but also have it be very playable for our members where they play it every day,” Castro said. He went on to say how players receive a different experience based on how they play each hole. Scott Johnson, PGA professional at the RSF Golf Club, was delighted that the author, Tod Leonard, wrote the piece because he has been a big part of the golf scene in San Diego County for a long time. “My impression was that Tod set a good feel for the history of golf in

son, adding how he also liked the historical coverage. And in the last 10 years, Johnson enjoyed the coverage on the Club’s commitment in hosting golf tournaments. These major events included but are not limited to the SCGA Championship, U.S. Junior Amateur Championship, SCGA Amateur Championship and more. Shanon McCarthy, director of communications at the RSF Golf Club, liked how the article was able to high-

light their “heavy hitters,” while it added another special level. “Everybody leaves their ego when they come here and everybody’s on the same peaceful playing field,” McCarthy said. “They are just regular normal people and that adds a really nice feel to the club.” Castro said in the past, they have had mentions in FORE Magazine, but never of this magnitude as a feature. Having this type of media recognition, Castro said, reinforces what the Club is all about. Castro describes

timeless classic. And this, among other reasons, is what makes their long-term members so committed to the club. “Many of our long-tenured members have always known that this is one of those great classic designs that you never get tired of playing,” he said, adding how their superintendent and team keep the course in pristine conditions. Johnson added that there haven’t been too many changes since the course was created. “And that is one of its big charms — there wasn’t any earth moved around when the course was built and just sits in this little valley,” he said, noting how there is nothing artificial about it. Johnson went on to say how the course offers a variety of shots because of its gently rolling fairways. Serving as membership director, McCarthy said when she tours prospective members or just people that want to come see the club, they are astounded by how casual, relaxed, and warm it is. “I hear this all the time. It’s just a beautiful place to come and to be,” she said. Castro believes what also makes the Club a standout is the setting. “Every day I come here it feels like you’re pulling into a country club. It also feels like you are miles away from the big cities and coast, but in reality, you’re just a hop, skip and a jump to San Diego and to the coast,” Castro said. “You get a feeling of tranquility as soon as you pull into the club.” To read this special RSF Golf Club feature edition, visit scga.org/ news /fore-magazine

District lining up projects

By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — At a recent RSF School District meeting, Superintendent Lindy Delaney addressed the board of trustees on its Proposition 39 update. Over five years, she told the board, they will be receiving $250,000. A portion of those monies have already been received. Delaney reported how the District is working with a company, commonly referred to as a trade professional, in an effort to create projects towards energy efficiency, which would be recognized by SDG&E. SDG&E continues to team up with schools in ways to mitigate the costs of controlling temperatures in the classroom to lighting throughout the campus. Schools in the San Diego school district have been encouraged to team up with a trade professional(s) for a variety of energy-saving initiatives to help lower electrical and natural gas costs. According to recent SDG&E statistics, the largest slice of energy use in schools goes first to HVAC, then lighting, and next, office equipment. Some recommendations from trade professionals have already been submitted to the RSF School District. One of these projects is the “400 building” which was built in 1991. For this project, redoing energy efficiency and lighting in the building will help, Delaney said. “We looked at replacing the valances and the light fixtures in the new school because they’re more energy efficient,” Delaney said. “If we go to LED, it’s going to take us a long time to recoup.” Delaney’s thought was that LED lighting will decrease in price over time. With that said, it was her recommendation to the trustees to delay this portion of the project until the price tag on LED lighting drops more. To give the board of trustees a clearer picture regarding the District’s utility bill, Delaney mentioned its June invoice. “We did get a pretty hefty bill in June and the school, as you know, was open for two-and-a-half weeks and it was like $19,000.00,” she said. Delaney described the energy costs as skyrocketing. And because of this, the District would keep an eye on this closely to see what steps it needed to take to alleviate these bills. “I think that this money will go toward those improvements,” she said, referring to the energy efficiency upgrades. Improvements such as this, can transfer monies which were once paying high utility bills, straight into the classroom.

Take a deep breath, Encinitas By Lisa R. Shaffer

Community Commentaries If not six Californias, how about one, sovereign Ca? Two years from now, Californians will not only be thinking about electing a U.S. senator, 53 members of Congress and a President, but most likely also about the possibility of carving up their state into six new ones. The ballot initiative to do this is the brainchild of billionaire venture capitalist Tim Draper, who observes to reporters that “bad government is not to be tolerated” and that “California is ungovernable.” His idea of creating new states like Silicon Valley, Jefferson and West California and possibly making state capitals of places like Santa Ana, Redding and Fresno comes after many other failed efforts to rip California apart, mostly motivated by water politics or Republican frustration at living in a Democratic-dominated state. But just as Californians for the next two years will bandy about the idea of Balkanizing their state, some may also want to consider using their state’s sheer size and scale to secede from the Union. Granted that the last time anyone made a serious effort at something like this, a four-year Civil War resulted. But still, California takes occasional stabs at semi-sovereignty and even manages to pull some of them off. One example is on smog, where the federal government for 44 years has let this state set rules tougher than those in force elsewhere. California governors sometimes even broach the topic of sovereignty. Example: On a July junket to Mexico City, Jerry Brown observed that “Even though California is a mere sub-national entity, it is equivalent to the eighth largest country in the world and we intend to operate based on that…clout.” Brown referred to gross domestic product, where

California ranks just behind Brazil and Russia, but is gaining on them, and well ahead of prominent nations like Italy, India, Mexico and Argentina. Like his predecessors going back to Goodwin Knight in the 1950s, Brown has signed international memoranda of understanding on subjects like trade, environment and tourism. But MOUs don’t have the force or standing of treaties, which a stand-alone California could make. A sovereign California also would no longer have to pour money into the federal government’s sinkhole, getting back only about 77 cents for every dollar its taxpayers put in while the likes of Mississippi, West Virginia, Maryland and Florida get far more than a buck back in federal spending for every one they kick in. Six Californias would give the current state 12 senators to the two it has now, guaranteeing that small states like Wyoming, Delaware and Wyoming will fight to kill this idea. They could do that if and when it comes up for congressional approval, as it must if the voters approve Draper’s idea. A sovereign California would also avoid the pesky worries that plague the sixstate idea, like how to split up the state’s universities and how to finance states like Jefferson (northern counties whose public services, including fire protection, are often subsidized by the rest of California) and Central California, which would instantly become America’s poorest state. Right next door to the poorest state, of course, would be the richest, Silicon Valley, perhaps making the Google headquarters in Mountain View its Capitol building. That would likely be the de facto headquarters, anyway. While there are questions about whether six new

states could stay afloat financially and intellectually, there would be no such qualms about a sovereign California, which could create as many senators as it wanted. This, after all, is the idea capital of the world, a place where world-changing enterprises from the Google search engine to Apple’s family of i-Products originate. It’s where film companies like Paramount and Warner Bros. and Disney and Dreamworks create global dreams. It’s where public universities became great and its farms feed much of the human race. As a nation, it would rank sixth worldwide in producing solar power and boast the world’s fourth-highest human development index score, while having only the 35th-highest population. But splitting into six would create have- and have-not states with plenty of foreseeable grudges and grievances against each other. California could avoid all that by becoming independent. Or, of course, by simply remaining a single state. Email Thomas Elias at tdelias@aol.com.

Campaign season is upon us and I guarantee you will hear the words “community character” often. Take a breath and think about what that really means. To me, Encinitas community character is about kindness, integrity, and open minds. We are a center of healing arts practitioners. We are an outdoor destination. We have a community full of wonderful, well-educated, interesting, creative, innovative people. The community character I support is treating each other with compassion and contributing positive energy to this amazing city we are privileged to live in. As you contemplate the upcoming elections for city council and for mayor, listen with an open mind to all the candidates. Listen for their values, their vision, their collaborative capacity, their effectiveness. Actively support whichever candidates resonate with you, and speak out about why you prefer him or her. Compare and contrast honestly, based on reality, based on facts, based on track records. That’s how the democratic process should work. I ask you NOT to believe everything you read. There are negative forces that make up stuff to create drama. Don’t go

there. Don’t tear down the other candidates thinking it makes your favorite one look better. It doesn’t. It makes the whole election process feel yucky. It makes people stay away, and nobody wins then. I honor anyone brave enough to stand for office. It’s not an easy thing to do. Be grateful that you can vote. Most people reading this will never run for office. So be glad someone is willing to work hard to win a seat, and then to work hard for all of us. If we can keep this campaign season positive, we will lay a foundation for the Council and mayor to work together. So I ask us all to take a deep breath. Think about how you feel when you first glimpse the ocean on a bright sunny morning. Think about how nice people are. How blessed we are with great shops, restaurants, a lagoon and open spaces, a magnificent library system, and so much more. That is the Encinitas character we should all be working to support and expand. Kindness, connection, and caring. I invite you to engage in the campaign in a positive way. We will all be better for it. That is how we protect Encinitas community character. Lisa R. Shaffer is an Encinitas City Council member.

Letters to the Editor The price of voting Last Monday notice was given that the Del Mar City Council would interrupt their August vacation to hold a special meeting on Wednesday to vote to cancel the Del Mar Citizens’ right to vote in November for the election of two councilmen for the next term! And appoint the two instead! The reason being to save $7,000 to $9,000 cost to hold the election. What a cheap price for the citizens’ right to vote! And, if 2,000 citizens would have voted in November, the two appointed councilmembers wouldn’t know whether they had the approval and support of 2,000 Del Mar voters, or 50! What other citizens’ rights will be ignored during the next council term? Ralph Peck, Del Mar The ACLU and Escondido I read an article in The Coast News Inland Edition about the ACLU with great interest. The article is in regard to the Southwest Keys interest in housing 96 illegal immigrant children in a convalescent care facility in Es-

condido, Calif.. The article states, “that Mr. David Loy of The ACLU filed an appeal against the city’s denial of the facility, stating the difference between a shelter and a residential care facility is the children served by Southwest Key are not homeless. They are traveling from one home to another.” I live in Escondido, Calif. about three blocks from the residential care facility where you want to force the city of Escondido to house 96 child illegal aliens. It seems you gave little or no thought to what is best for the children’s best interests. This facility was designed for as a hospital care facility. The facility has no playground for the children to play and exercise which is important for keeping children healthy. The majority of the Escondido residents have decided twice that this location is not the place for this use. This facility is not suitable for housing large numbers of children and adolescents. Also, the parking lot is small and will not service the large amount of vehicles for employees needed to operate this facility. Rather then spending

your time and energy forcing this inappropriate facility down the throats of the citizens of Escondido that do not think this facility is the proper place for 96 illegal alien children, why don’t you locate a proper location for the children, such as a school. The city of San Diego is in the process of selling several schools to meet a budget deficit. I am sure they would be more then willing to help you locate a facility that would be suitable for the young children bests interests. You need to keep in mind the ACLU mission statement. We want you do the right thing to help the children: “The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is a nonpartisan nonprofit organization whose stated mission is “to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed to every person in this country by the Constitution and laws of the United States.” It works through litigation, lobbying, and community education.

A yesteryear tradition reemerges in Del Mar By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — The colonial-inspired “shrub” has been reborn. The Del Mar founders of The Gingered Pear, whose all-natural cocktail mixers are suggestive of eclectic spirits, netted the attention of “Whole Foods Market” in Hillcrest, winning the “Best New Product Award” in 2013. In one year, a simple idea which started between two special friends, flourished into cocktail and mocktail masterpieces. For those unfamiliar with The Gingered Pear, they can be introduced to the delightful blend of its seasonal shrubs at the highly anticipated “Art of Fashion 2014” Sept. 18 at the Rancho Santa Fe Inn. “We will be offering sample cocktails at the Après Affaire,” said co-founder, Colette Bolitho. “It’s a wine and cheese dessert tasting after the Art of Fashion show and luncheon.” And when The Gin-

gered Pear is at an event it’s a feast for the senses with their garnishments and drizzles. Undeniably, the ladies behind this business are cocktail fashionistas. Within a year, The Gingered Pear has become recently approved as a Whole Foods Market’s local vendor, and is in local establishments such as the Del Mar Wine Company and Seaside Market in Cardiff. Bolitho, and her partner, Jennifer Woodmansee, share a common passion for gourmet food and entertaining. However, when it came time for serving up flavor-drenched cocktails, they were hard-pressed to find healthy mixers. “Looking around, we saw absolutely nothing out there to buy as cocktail mixes which were totally natural,” Bolitho said. And that’s when their business idea all started. Woodmansee describes the “shrub” as a revival. “In colonial times, they preserved their fruit syrups

with vinegar,” she said. Shrubs made its reentry with bartenders and mixologists several years ago. “A shrub is a perfect way to add that sour component to a cocktail which previously had to rely on some sort of citrus, whether

it was a lime or a lemon,” said Bolitho, adding that depending on the cocktail, a syrup would be added for sweetness. Shrubs at The Gingered Pear have a combination of both the sweetness from the fruit, and sour, from the vinegar.

Its vinegar, however, goes through a slow and long, cold process. This length of time allows the vinegar to mellow and give it the ability to seamlessly meld into an exquisite taste. The shrubs at the Gingered Pear are dictated by seasonal fruits. They also rely on local growers such as Stehly Farms and Specialty Produce’s farm program. Its current flavorful menu includes Apple Fennel, Strawberry Rosemary, and Carrot Orange. Because the business core is seasonal, other shrubs such as Pomegranate Ginger and Peach Cardamon sell quickly. But then again, there are always new flavors to look forward to with the changing of the seasons. Woodmansee believes what sets their product apart from others is the natural component. And Bolitho agrees “There’s no artificial ingredient of any sort and fruit is our first ingredient

in all of our products,” said Bolitho, noting that there are no preservatives. Woodmansee also pointed out how their shrubs are versatile in terms of using them for homemade sodas, salad dressings, desserts, and dessert cocktails. While these two busy mothers are juggling life and a growing business, they cannot stress enough the reason why their produce choices are local. Yes, the taste is exceptional and the colors are vibrant. But it’s more than that. “There’s the environmental component of the carbon footprint and the local economy,” Bolitho said. “We are keeping the money in San Diego County from buying produce from our local farmers.” To learn more about The Gingered Pear before the Art of Fashion 2014, including its great recipes, the ladies invite all to visit thegingeredpear.com.

Total water demands in the district’s service area remain lower than five years ago, thanks to residents’ and businesses’ conservation practices and efficient water use. Because of the current conditions, the district is asking every resident, home, business and organization to reassess their water use and take additional steps to conserve in case California has a fourth consecutive dry year. Restrictions include: • Irrigate before 8 a.m. or after 6 p.m. only • Limit lawn watering and landscape irrigation using sprinklers to no more than 10 minutes per station Properties with addresses ending with odd numbers are allowed to irrigate on Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday; even numbers on Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday. • Multi-Family, Condominiums, and Businesses are allowed to irrigate on ROUND: R1_V1

ing drought across the state. Despite conservation efforts, recording breaking hot and dry conditions during the first half of 2014 have made voluntary conservation challenging and have increased concern about preparing for 2015. Curtailment of State Water Project (SWP) deliveries this year and enactment of emergency statewide water conservation regulations by the State Water Resources Control Board represent unprecedented actions by the State in response to the drought and worsening conditions. The district does not anticipate cutbacks in imported water supplies this year, but water allocations at the wholesale level could be triggered next year if conditions don’t improve according to General Manager Michael Bardin. Bardin noted that “Implementing Level 2 water use restrictions will help the region save more water for 2015.”

Due Date: 08-22-14

RANCHO SANTA FE — The Santa Fe Irrigation District’s board of directors took action to declare a Level 2 Water Shortage Response Condition within the district’s service area from Rancho Santa Fe to the coast. The District had been at a Level 1 Water Shortage Response, calling for voluntary conservation measures since Feb. 20, 2014. Under a Level 2 Water Shortage Response Condition, all voluntary conservation measures currently in place become mandatory, and additional mandatory water use restrictions become effective Sept. 5.

Helen Woodward Animal Center’s Remember Me Thursday nears By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — Helen Woodward Animal Center is gearing up for its second annual Remember Me Thursday™ global event, founded by its president and CEO, Mike Arms. On Sept. 25, either traditional candles or virtual candles will be lit in memory of beloved pets that have passed away and also spur awareness about the millions of orphaned animals awaiting adoption. Jessica Gercke, public relations manager at Helen Woodward Animal Center, said the number of pets which are euthanized each year in the United States is

staggering. “About 3.4 million orphaned animals are put down every year,” she said. “And only 30 percent of pets in homes are from adoptable facilities.” Gercke pointed out that these numbers reflect that nearly 70 percent of animals are purchased from breeders. “We have millions of beautiful pets dying every year and that includes purebreds,” she said. It was these numbers which triggered Arms to bring worldwide awareness to the issue. If people wanted to bring a new pet into their home, going to a

rescue facility was a great place to start. “So by starting a candle lighting ceremony and lighting a candle in honor of the memory of all the pets that passed away, Mike also felt that we were shining a light on the orphaned animals that are waiting,” she said. Gercke continued, “And there are so many healthy orphaned pets that are euthanized every year, and so many healthy orphaned pets that wait each year in facilities to be rescued.” When Arms came up with the idea, Gercke added, he began reaching out to a number of organiza-

tions he knew across the globe. It was decided that “Remember Me Thursday” would be marked on the fourth Thursday of every September. In its first year, 139 countries participated. Participants either lit a virtual candle on remembermethursday.org, a traditional candle at an event or in the privacy of their own home. Last year, nearly 5,000 virtual candles were lit all over the world including Mexico, Australia, Europe, Great Britain, Japan and beyond. And for this year, Gercke said, celebrity support

RSF Library youth programs return RSF Superintendent reports on staff data Our By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — While the summer months are nearing an end, the youth schedule at that RSF Library is gearing up for it lineup of activities. The youth services manager at the RSF Library Guild, Emily Bruce, said because the school year is here, all of its regular programs such as Love on a Leash, after school programs, and Saturday activities are in full swing. “At the end of last year, we added ‘Make and Take Crafts’ on Saturdays that are available all day long on a drop in basis. Every Saturday features a fun new craft,” she said. Bruce continued, “We will be continuing this program this school year so please stop by for crafts and fun for the whole family.” Since feedback is important, the Guild has an online survey that everyone can participate in. Questions pertain to program ideas as well as timeframes which are convenient to families As far as Bruce is concerned, its storytimes are unique. The three they

have include Preschool Storytime on Tuesdays, Book Babies on Wednesdays, and Toddler Storytime on Fridays. “Our storytimes are led by library staff members with rich backgrounds as teachers, reading specialists, and experience working with children of all ages,” Bruce said. “Our storytimes are special

because of the smaller, more close-knit community feel we are able to provide being a smaller library.” Bruce describes Book Babies storytime as a great program for babies and pre-walkers, because parents can learn the importance of reading and talking about stories, singing songs, bouncing to rhymes, and playing with puppets as useful early literacy skills. “At our Animal Movement storytime on Sept. 17th, we will be trotting like horses, stretching like kittens, swimming like turtles, shaking like a wet dog, and reach like monkeys leaping through the jungle,” she said. Bruce wants residents to know that its afterschool activities on Thursdays are always a lot of fun and children can look forward to something different. They weave a combination of stories, games, crafts and much more to keep children engaged. “On Thursday, Sept. 18th we will have a special guest, Captain Jack Sparrow, visiting the library for ‘Talk Like a Pirate Day,’” Bruce said.

Another great program Bruce wanted to share is Love on a Leash every month. It’s a phenomenal program for children learning how to read. At Love on a Leash, Bruce said, children can read to certified therapy dogs. “Research on these types of programs has found that reading to therapy dogs can boost reading skills and provides a stress-free environment to practice reading aloud,” she said. Bruce said the RSF Library has become a great place for the community to gather. “The goal of our library programs is to inform, educate, inspire, and entertain. We aim to provide a place in Rancho Santa Fe where kids, teens, and adults of all ages can gather as a community,” she said. To learn more about the children’s program and its new adult Chair Yoga for all ages, please visit rsflibraryguild.org or call (858) 756-4780. The online survey can be found in the children section.

RANCHO SANTA FE — Superintendent Lindy Delaney updated the board of trustees with information regarding specific personnel. One of which was former Assistant Superintendent of Educational Services, Cindy Schaub. “I was hoping to have Cindy here tonight to really thank her for her service but she had a board meeting in her new district,” Delaney said. Schaub recently accepted the position of Assistant Superintendent of Educational Leadership at the South Bay Union School District. Delaney told the board she planned to have Schaub return to the school in the days ahead so she and her staff could personally thank Schaub for all the work she has done. “Cindy took our curriculum in the last eight years as Assistant Superintendent a long way and we wish her the best of luck,” she said, adding how things were definitely different without her at the RSF School District. With Schaub at her new position, Delaney pointed out that its school principals Kim Pinkerton and Garrett Corduan have helped step into that role to assist. During the course of the board meeting, in its consent calendar items, the board of trustees unanimously voted to approve an annual salary of $135,000 each for both Pinkerton and Corduan. While Schaub was removed as a District credit cardholder for Mission Federal Credit Union, the board agreed to grant Corduan as a cardholder. The board of trustees also approved Pinkerton as an additional signer for the District’s Revolving Cash and Student Body Account at Pacific Western Bank. “We’ve also hired a new math specialist who has more energy than three

people,” Delaney said. “I think we’re moving in a great direction.” Following Delaney’s closing remarks, President, Richard Burdge, put in his request for an agenda item for the Sept. meeting. “So everybody probably knows the Garden Club is officially put up for sale,” he said. Burdge continued, “I think the board should have a discussion on what that means to the school district if anything. We can discuss parking, the uses of it, and just kind of take it from there.” Burdge said it was im-

The RSF Garden Club property sale listing is being represented by Colliers International, a commercial real estate and brokerage firm. Delaney confirmed that this property discussion would be held in closed session. As well, Delaney also added speaking about parcels, which are adjacent to its Mimosa property. The board of trustees agreed to add these two agenda items for its upcoming closed session meeting.

WWII vet creating book for Library of Congress By Bianca Kaplanek

SOLANA BEACH — A business relationship that started at Fiesta del Sol has evolved into a friendship and the creation of a book that will be submitted to the Veterans History Project of the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress. During the 2012 Solana Beach event, resident Seymour Phillips stopped by the ScanDiego booth, where he met Brett Weiss, owner of the digital conversion company. “I had a million pictures and I needed help getting them organized,” Phillips said. “But I’m probably the doofus of all computer operators.” As they worked together Weiss, who describes himself as “an archivist and a bit of a historian,” became fascinated by his new client’s history, especially his service as a submarine electrician’s mate during World War II. Phillips, now 89, grew up in the Los Angeles suburb of Encino, not far from Phillips Bootery, the family business his father established in 1936. After graduating high school, Phillips joined the Navy in 1943. Following his training in San Diego, Iowa, Connecticut and Northern California, he arrived at Pearl Harbor on Jan. 3, 1944. A few months later he received orders transferring him to the USS Herring. But the next day new

orders arrived. “I was assigned to mess duty for 10 days, which was reporting to the commissary at 5 a.m., to a room with potato-peeling machines,” Phillips said. “We spent two hours filling 20 vats of peeled potatoes.” Phillips said he doesn’t know if the reassignment was a mistake. Although he wasn’t happy about it at first, it appears to have been life-saving. The USS Herring’s eighth war patrol, which he had been assigned to, was its last. The submarine sank and no one aboard survived. “Life is really funny,” Philips said. “Sometimes I think I have some karma looking over me.” Not long after, Phillips was assigned to the USS Billfish, a submarine credited with sinking several Japanese ships and schooners. A few years ago, while browsing the Internet, Phillips came across an account of the Billfish’s seventh war patrol and noticed the details of one incident were missing. During his lookout, it “was as if a giant had taken a telephone pole and butt ended it into our hull,” he wrote in an account that has since been added to the report. “All of the men on the bridge felt the shudder as the hull was hit on the port side aft. … We all knew that Japanese submarines patrolled the area. “We arrived at Midway the next morning and

by afternoon we went into dry dock,” Phillips wrote. “When I saw the hull stove in, with the perfect shape of a torpedo head, I couldn’t believe our luck. Many memories are dulled by time but this is in my head like it happened yesterday.” When his service ended in 1946, Phillips returned to California and began

Ingalls, Browne and Nagler top Summer Classic DEL MAR — The Showpark Summer Classic hosted the second rounds of the California Professional Horseman’s Association (CPHA) Foundation Finals Aug. 24, wrapping up the three sections of competition. Divided into 22-andover, 21-and-under, and 14-and-under age divisions, riders brought their medal finals game to Del Mar this weekend. Judges Robin Fairclough and Scott Williamson scored, tested and ultimately awarded the final placings.

Caroline Ingalls and Y2K, who train with Hap Hansen in Rancho Santa Fe, earned the championship sash for the event. Course tests included a trot jump with two options and a halt in front of the in-gate. After an impressive display of competition, Goodson, Haseltine, Ingalls and Owens had the highest total average scores from both rounds and formed the top four in the work-off. Exhibiting a smooth, fluid work-off round and a remarkable work-off score of 85, it was Ingalls aboard Y2K who rose to the top with a final total of 167.125. The reserve champion sash and cooler went Laura Owens on L Alta Vida with a total of 165.75. “The course was a good challenge, very tough but doable. It allowed people to shine depending on the track they took,” Ingalls, said. Ingalls, a graduate student in interior design, will soon head back to school in Georgia. Finishing up with a big win is a great send off. In the 14-and-under, the excitement mounted as Round 2 began Aug. 24, with all 31 riders returning to try and earn one of the eight places in the work-off. The 14 & under and

22 & over age divisions had identical courses, so the younger group had the advantage of watching the earlier rides. The overall top prize went to Katie Browne, who earned a spectacular work-off score of 86 for a cumulative total of 169.69. Browne trains with the team at Karen Healey Stables in Moorpark. Reserve champion was awarded to Kayla Lott, who had a grand total of 166.19. A solid work-off score catapulted Dorothy Kauffman-Skloff's grand total to 164.13 and the third place, rounding out the top three places on the winners’ podium. In the 21 & under age division, it was Julia Nagler, who trains with Benson Carrol in Carmel Valley, aboard Vendetta, capturing the championship sash. The reserve champion was awarded to Halie Robinson on Barolo W, and the third place ribbon went to Melanie Selleck on Zenden. “I attend online school at the University of Minnesota so I can still travel and ride. I have a six-year-old horse that I'm hoping will start the process of buying young horses to bring along and sell to keep moving along in the horse industry,” Nagler said.

classes at the University of California Los Angeles, where he met the woman who would eventually become his wife. But his college plans ended after less than two years when a heart attack landed his father in the hos-

pital for three months. Phillips left school in 1948 to help with Phillips Bootery. Following his father’s death in 1963, he took over the family business, but eventually closed it in 1984, nearly 50 years after it began.

He then put his electrician skills back to work for a few years, helping his cousin develop medical equipment. He retired in 1990, and he and his wife, Barbara, moved to Solana Beach. But when his daughter announced a few years later that she wanted to go back to school, Phillips went back to work since tuition “wasn’t in my budget at that point,” he said. He started Seymour Phillips C/A (the initials stand for college account), a corrective footwear company that makes custom-made shoes. “It’s a one-man operation and it’s not a robust business, but it gives me something to do,” he said. Also keeping him busy for the past two years is his project with Weiss. The family photos, movies and slides are almost all converted. The two are also working on a book that includes his World War II photos, something Phillips had long wanted to create. Weiss suggested he submit a copy to the Veterans History Project, which “collects, preserves and makes accessible the personal accounts of American war veterans so future generations may hear directly from veterans and better understand the realities of war,” according to the website description.

There have been 104 smaller earthquakes recorded to date since the big one during the early morning hours of Aug. 24. In a sign of gritty resilience, the world famous Napa Valley Welcome sign stood its ground and didn’t crack or crumble. Six wineries out of the more than 500 in the valley, reported major damage with Trefethen Winery’s main building, a classic historical site built in 1886, near collapse. Located in the Oak Knoll district, just north of the city of Napa which took the brunt of the damage, Loren Trefethen was quoted as saying, “we are one family, one estate and one passion. This is who we are. Nature has dealt us a blow, but we will come back.” You may want to see a remarkable helicopter video on her site at www.trefethen. com.

Steve Laverson, M.D., F.A.C.S Specialty: Plastic Surgery

Feel Beautiful, Dr. Steve Laverson’s private plastic surgery clinic located in Encinitas, CA, is known among many as the destination for “stealth” plastic surgery, with results that look naturally beautiful. Dr. Laverson attended the United States Naval Academy on a Congressional Appointment from 1975-77, and graduated first in his class at the University of Maryland in 1979. At the University of Maryland Medical School in Baltimore, Dr. Laverson decided plastic surgery was the best fit for his artistic ability and his love for beauty. Dr. Laverson is certified by the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Plastic Surgery. He has operated Feel Beautiful since 1993, has performed over 40,000 successful procedures during the past 30 years, and is highly respected by other plastic surgeons locally, nationally, and internationally.

For more than 25 years, physicians at North Coast Health Center have been providing highly personalized

In the kingdom of social animals, survival of groups depends upon selection of strong leadership and fulfillment by individuals of their established role. Within the community, a hierarchical order is maintained. Individuals observe, judge and challenge one another; compete for resources and mates ; and cooperate in tasks that cannot be accomplished alone. So it is in human society, at increasingly complex levels. Attractive appearance, physical fitness, intelligence, creativity, social skills and many specialized aptitudes confer competitive advantage. Favorable improvements of face and figure achieved surgically offer benefits to the bearer in this environment. The great value of true aesthetic enhancement has birthed an industry devoted to profiting from procedures, technologies, goods and services offering consumers anything and everything between hopes completely unfulfilled to spectacular transformation with lifelong dividends from a modest one-time investment. So how is one to navigate murky waters of profiteering, avoiding

corporating tools and techniques, but only in service of good results, not as an end in itself.

Pendleton Marines help to close out Afghan war By Tony Cagala

CAMP PENDLETON — Artillery rounds from a training exercise nearby exploded in the hills of Camp Pendleton. “The sound of freedom,” said Col. Peter B. Baumgarten, as the resounding thunder of a shell hitting its mark rolled overhead. Baumgarten and more than 40 other Marines and Sailors from the 1st Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division had, only moments before, disembarked from one of the white buses that brought them to their families. It was six months ago they deployed to Afghanistan as a task force to safeguard Camp Bastion/Leatherneck in the Helmand province. “It wasn’t bad at all,” said Cpl. Andrew Guzman on his first deployment. In the Marines for three-anda-half-years, Guzman, who’s from Walnut, Calif., said it was good experience and an honor to finally go and to close it out. The base is being downsized and the reduction of combat powers are underway, signaling the end to the longest war in U.S. history. “It’s interesting,” Baumgarten said on being a part of the war. “You stop

Samantha Newbern waited with excitement for her husband Sgt. Nicholas Newbern to get off the bus. Waiting with her was their 3-month-old son William, whom Nicholas hadn’t yet met. “It’s definitely not been easy,” Samantha said of her husband’s first deployment and their first child. “I’ve had a lot of support, and my husband has been fabulous throughout,” she said, noting that she’s videoed and photographed every moment of William’s life. Still, Samantha said she expected to start crying on reuniting with her husband. “There’s this strange phenomenon where you finally allow yourself to realize just how hard it is,” she said. “Until that point, with the self preservation, Samantha Newbern, left, watches her husband Sgt. Nicholas Newbern, meet his 3-month-old son William you just don’t. And so yes, for the first time on returning from deployment to Afghanistan. Photo by Tony Cagala

and you think about it — 13 years in Afghanistan — and I always reflect back on 2001. I was a Major, a staff officer at Headquarters Marine Corps and somebody called me to the television and said, ‘Hey, you’re not going to believe what’s going on.’” It was just that morning, he explained, that he was thinking the world was quiet — that his Marine

Andrew Francis Kay January 22, 1919 – August 28, 2014

Open Memorial Services: Saturday, September 6th at 10AM at Rancho Santa Fe Village Church

Andrew Francis Kay, father, grandfather and great grandfather, passed from this life into paradise on August 28, 2014 at the age of 95. Born Andrew Francis Kopischiansky on January 22, 1919 to Fyodor (Frank) Kopischiansky and Julia Halkovich in Akron, Ohio, Andy grew up speaking a Russian dialect called Lemko in Clifton, New Jersey. Andy loved learning from the beginning and throughout his life. He began learning English only after entering the first grade. Rather than playing with other kids during recess or lunch break, he would sit and read with a large rock handy to deter any mischief

from other boys. One day in the middle of sixth grade, the principal caught him reading a high school math book, took him to his office, and with one look at his grades promoted him to the seventh grade. Then half way through the eighth grade he was promoted again to the ninth grade. This accelerated his graduation from high school just prior to his seventeenth birthday. With substantial sacrifice and financial support of his parents and younger brother, Andy graduated from MIT in 1940. The same year he married his wife, Mary Catherine Marble, and started working for Bendix in the defense industry. After working for Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, CA, Andy moved his family to Del Mar, CA in 1949 to help his long time mentor and employer Bill Jack start Bill Jack Scientific Instruments Co. where later he became VP of engineering in Solana Beach. Already known professionally as Mr. K., Andy and the whole family changed their last name to Kay that same year. This worked well for his entrepreneurial spirit, where Andy Kay launched out on his own to design electronic equipment for the military or test an idea for an improved fishhook lure. His greatest development came in 1952 where in a rented room in the 17th street beachside Del Mar Motel, Andy invented the Digital Volt

Corps career was quiet. “For the next 10 years nothing is going to happen,” he said. “And then the whole world got turned on its ear on Sept. 11, 2001.” To be the last regiment after 13 years of combat in Afghanistan, it’s really an important feeling for the Marines, Baumgarten said. Though originally thinking that he would be taking 300 Marines on

Meter. The Digital Volt Meter (DVM) introduced three new innovations for the first time, an automatic voltage polarity switch, automatic voltage decade switch, and of course replacing the needle dial with a digital display all with accuracy to 0.1%. The same year Andy started Non-Linear Systems (NLS) to market and sell DVMs for $2,300 (~$20,600 today) “leading the electronics industry into the digital revolution” according to Electronics Design magazine. In 1962, famed psychologist, Abraham Maslow, spent his sabbatical studying NLS and its leading edge work environment and Andy’s “enlightened management” from which he later published Eupsychian Management. In 1979, Andy saw that personal computer circuit boards were not as complex as the top of the line instruments NLS was manufacturing decided to get into the personal computer business with Kaypro II, which combined monitor, disk drives and motherboard into one portable unit that was still affordable to the masses. By 1983, NLS was renamed Kaypro, went public, and became the fifth largest PC manufacturer in the world with revenues peaking at $125 million. In 1998, Andy Kay was inducted into the Computer Museum of America Hall of Fame for his many contributions to the electronics indus-

they’re happy tears, and it’s super exciting, but you also let yourself fully realize just how hard it was.” Another Marine, Cpl. Eric Candelario met his 4-month-old son Liam also for the first time since deploying. There are still 4,500 Marines from Camp Pendleton deployed to Afghanistan. With the troop drawdown announced by President Barack Obama on May 27, 2014, 9,800 American troops will remain there until the end of the year. It’s expected that half of those troops will be pulled out by the end of 2015, with the remaining troops pulling out by the end of 2016. Baumgarten described the interactions between the coalition forces and Afghan people as, “very posiTURN TO MARINES ON 17

And I think the pride that they have in being a part of that history and contributing to that history is really important,” Baumgarten said.

try. Andy continued pursuing his entrepreneurial passion of making and selling PCs under the name Kay Computers until 2010. When Andy was not pursuing business ventures in the electronics industry, he was heavily involved in education. He had served as a San Dieguito School Board Trustee from 1955 to 1970 and as a member of the Board of Directors of Johnson O’Connor Research Foundation, Inc., where he pursued the advancement of education with particular attention to the development of a “thinking vocabulary” as a basic component of a successful life. Andy was also a founding member of Del Mar, CA Rotary Club in 1954. Andy developed a firm faith in God. He enjoyed studying the Bible and attending the Rancho Santa Fe Village Church. In a televised interview with MIT Enterprise Forum, Andy was asked, what was his greatest accomplishment, to which he emphatically responded, “My family!” Andy lost his beautiful wife, Mary in 1996 and at 95, he outlived almost all of his colleagues and friends. Andy will be deeply missed by Marge Stokes, a friend of 70 years and by the family he leaves behind, Brother Steve, four children, Allan, David, Janice, and Nancy, 14 grandchildren, and 26 great-grandchildren.

Just what makes Grand Junction, Colo. an All American city? hit the road e’louise ondash


raffic jams. Cracked curbs. Limited parking. Jaywalking. Shadeless streets. Dying businesses. That about sums up downtown Main Street Grand Junction, Colo., such as it was in the late 1950s. Just a handful of years later, it was named an All American City by Look Magazine. How did that happen? Foresight, tenacity and the willingness of citizens, business owners and city officials to invest time, talents and money. It took a collective will to take Grand Junction’s Main Street from the downhill slide to the welcoming, pedestrian-friendly district that it is today. “We live in the desert, so it can be pretty inhospitable,” explained Harry Weiss, executive director of the Grand Junction Downtown Development Authority. “We wanted to distinguish our Main Street — to make it more hospitable and pedestrian-oriented — an alternative to the strip mall.” As it turns out, the city planners were ahead of their time because “walkability is the gold standard today,” Weiss added. That transformation in the early ‘60s was a giant undertaking for a city of less than 19,000, but they did it. Today residents and visitors enjoy a two-lane serpentine Main Street bordered for blocks by leafy sycamore trees, dozens of sculptures, fountains, planter boxes, play structures, benches and café tables. And best of all, the sidewalks are well populated with shoppers, kids, cyclists, dog walkers and diners. Today 59,000 call Grand Junction home, so-named because it’s the point in Western Colorado where the Colorado and Gunnison rivers meet. The town and surrounding area have much to offer — a welcoming shopping and dining district; the nearby Colorado National Monument; agricultural tourism; and vineyards and wineries that bask in the sun

at the base of the magnificent Book Cliffs. I discovered all of this in mid-June during a fourday visit. To explore the area, plan to stay at one of several reasonably priced hotels along Grand Junction’s meandering Main Street. (Excellent lodging and free buffet breakfasts are provided at SpringHill Suites by Marriott; Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott; and the Hampton Inn.) These hotels put you steps away from the boutiques, art galleries, restaurants and bars. Recommended downtown eateries: Bistro 743; Bin 707 Foodbar; il Bistro Italiano; Dream Café; Café Sol; and Naggy McGee’s Irish Pub. Be sure to visit one of the outdoor kiosks, which provide pamphlets with keys to the many sculptures and walking-tour maps of the town’s historic buildings. A 25-minute drive from downtown takes you to the entry of Colorado National Monument with its “big, bold and brilliantly colored” canyons and mesas standing against a cloudless sky. It’s a place where you can contemplate the ferocity of the wind, rain and ice that created all of these sandstone features. Trails of varying difficulty bring you to other-worldly formations that will have you contemplating nature at its grandest. Balance Rock is a 600-ton boulder that perches atop a sandstone pedestal. Coke Ovens look like giant beehives, and Independence Monument is a 450-foot-high, freestanding tower that changes shape completely when viewed from different angles. Even if you decide to drive, you’ll see some spectacular scenery along the 23mile Rim Rock Drive, which takes you through the length of the park. This route also provides vantage points from which you can see summer monsoons develop and move across the rust-colored landscape. My group took the Devils Kitchen Trail, which brought us to massive rock “room” bordered by giant sandstone boulders. The round trip took about an hour-and-a-half, but other trails can take up to eight hours. For information on activities, shopping, hotels and restaurants, go online to visitgrandjunction.com.

Setting the EDM world on its ear By Alan Sculley

Porter Robinson says he feels he has really found himself musically on his first full-length album, the newly released “Worlds.” The only potential problem with that is the songs on “Worlds” represent a major departure from the kind of electronic music that first vaulted Robinson into the front ranks of his genre. “I found success in EDM (electronic dance music) really unexpectedly,” Robinson, 21, said in a late August phone interview. “Because I was so young — I was like 17 or 18 — I didn’t have much in terms of an artistic trajectory or an idea for myself or what I even stood for.” As time went on Robinson realized the music that made him popular was not what he loved. He decided to take the risk and follow his heart rather than continue to create the kind of caffeinated, high energy electronic music that first brought him success and filled his DJ sets and live performances over the first several years of his career. The result is an album in “Worlds” that is not only strikingly different for Robinson, but one that is being touted in early reviews as a possible game changer for the entire electronic music genre. What Robinson has done on “Worlds” is basically merged pop and electronic music. The tones and instrumentation are fully drawn from the electronic world — no instruments, only computers, were used in the making of “Worlds.” But instead of getting blasted

by the visceral tones and pounding beats common in EDM, on tracks like “Sad Machine,” “Fresh Static Snow” “Years of War” and “Hear The Bells,” listeners are greeted by washes of synthesizers and pretty vocals. Just as notably, the tracks adhere much more closely to conventional pop song structures than much of the music heard in the EDM genre. This is music that is meant to be blissful, and if it lacks the party-starting volume and energy of most EDM music, so be it. “I am really obsessed with the notion of beau-

ty and vastness, and I just love things that feel big and beautiful and inspiring,” Robinson said. “I have this great love of like fiction, particularly in video games, but also in animation and movies, and I knew that I wanted to write an album of music that focused on beauty and emotion, with kind of the undertone of feeling fantastical and feeling fictional in some ways to sort of evoke the vibe of fantasy, essentially. “So that’s where all of the sci-fi themes and the robot voices (come from on “Worlds…It’s really about escapism in every way.” The adrenalized sound of his early EDM music certainly served Robinson well. The native of Chapel Hill, North Carolina notched an early hit with the 2010 track “Say My Name,” but probably got more attention for an 11-track EP, “Spitfire,” released in 2011. It rocketed to number one on the iTunes Dance chart and crashed the servers on the leading electronic music service Beatport as fans rushed to discover the tracks. A couple of additional hits followed — a collabora-

tion with Zedd on “Clarity” and with Mat Zo on “Easy,” the latter of which topped the Beatport chart. But as his profile expanded, Robinson found himself growing tired of doing DJ sets and making music that merely was meant to work on the dance floor. So he put a stop to touring and immersed himself in crafting the “Worlds” album. So far, it looks like the musical risks of “Worlds” may pay off. The album has topped “Billboard” magazine’s Dance/Electronic Album chart and debuted at 18 on “Billboard’s” allgenre Top 200 Albums chart. Now Robinson is going on tour in support of “Worlds,” bringing out a visually spectacular show that is every bit as ambitious and as meticulously planned out as the new album. “My old shows, which were DJ sets to me, essentially all you do is get the song from the laptop to the speakers and press play,” Robinson said. “And then the challenge is what’s kind of done in the intermission between the two songs, how you mix them, at what rate you mix them, your song selection. That is essentially is the craft of DJing.” The new show, though, is as much about performance as it is sound. Songs will include pre-recorded parts, but Robinson will perform many of the prominent instrumental parts live, using various keyboards and drum pads. He is also singing the vocals to his new songs — something that had never been part of his earlier shows. There’s one other key contrast. “I think the biggest change by far is that in my previous shows, my DJ sets, I was playing maybe 10 percent Porter Robinson music, and this new show is 100 percent Porter Robinson music,” he said. “ It’s all originals. It’s some old songs, mostly new songs and even some updated newer versions of old songs to fit the ‘Worlds’ atmosphere. I wanted to represent the old material for long-time fans, but I didn’t want to wreck the atmosphere of the new music.”

Village Church Theater production seeking actors By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — The Village Church Community Theater is holding auditions for “The Saga of Sagebrush Sal,” a comedy Western melodrama, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Sept. 8 at The Village Church, 6225 Paseo Delicias, Rancho Santa Fe. The melodrama tells the story of Sagebrush Sal, who decides to take over the busiest establishment in town, The Bloody Turnip, owned by Jake the Snake. Much of the action is mimed by the actors to lines read by a narrator with exaggerated pantomime, farcical action, and broad, blatant satire. Margie Wood, producing director for the Village Church Community Theater talked about the play and what she’s looking for from her actors. Responses have been edited for clarity and length. For all the plays in production you could have chosen for this season, what attracted you most to this one? The plot is funny, and it’s all about white hats, black hats, good versus evil, but it’s really a melodrama. It’s very clear, you know, who’s the good guy and who’s the bad guy. Obviously, the good guy’s gonna win in the end. So that’s where the fun comes along. But this one had an interesting twist to it with the use of the bubblegum also and the narrator reads a lot of the lines of the action. And the actors have to pantomime. You’re looking for 20 to 25 actors. What skill set of characteristics are you really looking for

from the actors in this production? Well, I’m looking for people that can do pantomime. They don’t have to learn a lot of lines because there aren’t a lot of things you have to memorize. I’m gonna ask them to do several improv things. And as far as creating a production, what would you personally like as far as evoking emotion from the viewers? What, what do you hope to evoke from them? Fun. I hope they laugh. When we did it on Lake San Marcos, we had the audience is laughing just about every other line. It’s old-fashioned theatre. It’s just fun. And how many years have you been doing production, Margie? Well, I’ve been here at the Village Church since 2005. We do four productions a season. And then before that I was a director of the opera company in Rochester, New York, and well, before that I ran a dance, tap, jazz, ballet school. Is there anything else that you would like to add about the upcoming play that I did not ask? I think that I would just like to emphasize that this is old-fashioned fun for everyone. Kids love it. It’s great for adults. There’s, uh, there’s a lot of comedy and, uh, well, I had such fun putting the show together out in Lake San Marcos as did the actors. Performances will be Sunday, Oct. 5, Friday, Oct. 10 and Sunday, Oct. 12. For information: v i l lagechu rchcom munitytheater.org or marg iew @ v il lagechurch. org.

that is kind of the policy that is submitted for the Board’s consideration” Initially, board member, Heather Slosar, questioned whether or not a policy was actually needed for this. Board president Ann Boon pointed out that currently any board member can pick up the phone, call the attorney, and the lawyer will gladly spend their time to answer those questions. Coupled with this phone time is a fee. Boon believed the intent of the policy would allow a manger to call an attorney with a board member’s question if the time needed was limited, as in an hour or less. However, if a Director’s question involved more legal time, then it would be taken to the Board for consideration. “So I think this gives the manager the flexibility to do either,” Boon said. Holler agreed with Boon, explaining the manager would return to the Board to make sure they are comfortable with any particular legal expenditure before moving forward.



tattooing. Considered the best in 3-D nipple tattoos, Meyers also tattoos patients who decide to undergo the reconstruction. For women, it’s a personal choice. Based in Maryland, Meyers has helped women end their breast reconstruction journey all over the country, including, top surgery centers since 2002. While majority of breast cancer survivors go see Meyers, he thought it was time to come see them. And San Diego was his first stop. “We have a large demand from the West Coast, and there are a lot of women who need the service and a lack of people doing it,” Meyers said. “The main goal was to come here because it can get so expensive for women paying for airfare, hotels, rental cars and everything.” Meyers wanted to make sure to pick a special place to do the tattoos. And that’s why he chose Rancho Valencia in Rancho Santa Fe. While numerous plas-

Historic preservation tax credit pending SACRAMENTO — Assembly Speaker Toni G. Atkins’ bill that would stimulate local economies, redevelop deteriorating structures, and promote affordable housing now awaits the Governor’s go-ahead. “California is one of the few states to not provide an incentive for the preservation of our historic buildings,” said Speaker Atkins (D-San Diego). “A state tax credit for this purpose would help stimulate local economies, revitalize downtown areas and communities, promote and increase the supply of affordable housing, encourage property maintenance and rehabilitation, and leverage use of the federal rehabilitation tax credit. AB 1999 helps

communities adjust to the phase-out of redevelopment dollars and stimulates public and private investment, all while building civic pride as we celebrate our heritage and preserve California’s past.” Passing through both houses of the California Legislature with unanimous support, Speaker Atkins’ AB 1999 would offer a 20-percent tax credit for most renovations of registered historic buildings and 25-percent tax credit for buildings that meet certain criteria. The credit would be for $50 million per year and would sunset after seven years. AB 1999 now moves to the Governor for consideration.


tive right now.” “So it’s positive right now, in terms of the dynamics…the real question is, after we leave, how much is the support they’re getting from Kabul — the ministerial support, the logistics, the medical, the maintenance — all those things. How do those work to keep them sustainable over time,” he said.

Yet, while in Afghanistan, Baumgarten said he was watching what was happening in Iraq with the militant group ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) seizing territories in the country, saying that it was “very disheartening.” “To be in a deployed environment — and I’ve lost friends in Iraq — every Marine who has served in Iraq has lost friends in Iraq. And to watch…

ISIS take over territory in a matter of weeks that we worked years to hold and maintain and build — it was disheartening,” Baumgarten said. Rear Admiral John Kirby, speaking at a Department of Defense press conference on Aug. 22 said that the U.S. military is operating in a manner of support of Iraq, but that it was a fight that the Iraqi security forces have to take on.

“Ultimately, the answer is going to be found in good governance,” Kirby said. “Now, I know… that doesn’t offer everybody… the immediacy that they may want to have in dealing with this threat, this very serious threat — but ultimately, it’s defeating the ideology through good governance.” Having deployed several times to Iraq and Afghanistan, Baumgarten said he really tries not to

draw parallels between the two countries. “It’s different,” he said. “And I think they (Afghans) have the opportunity to draw their own future. And I think Iraq is a cautionary tale to the leadership in Afghanistan. And I’m confident, given the next couple of years of U.S. military involvement in Afghanistan, that we can create the conditions to prevent something like Iraq.”

tic surgeons would have opened their doors for Meyers, for him, it was about giving women the right atmosphere. “The mission was to finish the journey for these ladies in as comfortable an environment as we could possibly have away from a doctor’s office,” Meyers said. He continued, “This area is absolutely fantastic.” In fact, Meyers plans to return in six months to help more women. On this visit, Meyers was in Rancho Santa Fe with a small support staff, including his wife, Robin. Meyers tattooed 20 breast cancer survivors. The women, ranging from 30 to 68 years old, traveled from southern and northern California and Nevada. To date, Meyers has tattooed close to 7,500 breast reconstruction patients. Women from Australia, Brazil, Saudi Arabia and beyond have covered miles to see Meyers. It’s his passion to help women who have “fought the fight” which fuels him to do more.

“It only takes looking into a lady’s face after you’ve done this just one time, and you know, that you could do this forever,” he said. Next month, Meyers is jetting to Australia and New Zealand to help 60 more women. And next year, he has plans to travel to Great Britain. Meyers knows there is a growing trend for tattoo artists to do nipple areola tattooing. With that said, he wants women to do their “due diligence” in finding the most adept people. “It can be dangerous to have someone who’s not experienced tattoo a reconstructed breast. It’s critical that whoever these ladies go to, whether it’s me or anyone else, that they do their research and make sure the tattoo artist knows what they’re doing,” Meyers said. Breast cancer survivor, Julia Joslyn, from Hermosa Beach, met Meyers in Rancho Santa Fe for her bilateral tattoos. “I heard about Vinnie through a lot of people. I’m part of the Young Survivors Coalition and was told he

was the best,” she said. Joslyn had her double mastectomy on July 9 — her birthday, which she called liberating. And in January, underwent “twist and stitch” nipple reconstruction. Following her tattoos with Meyers, she now has closure. If she had to do it over again, Joslyn said, she may have considered 3-D nipple tattoos. Dr. Glynn Bolitho, a board certified San Diego plastic and reconstruction surgeon, who is also the current Chief of Plastic Surgery at Scripps Memorial Hospital, La Jolla, has a former breast reconstruction patient who went to Meyers

for 3-D nipple tattoos. “I think Vinnie does bring a new dimension to nipple tattooing,” said Bolitho. “For patients who don’t undergo nipple reconstruction per se, it does provide certainly the appearance of a reconstructed nipple.” Bolitho went on to say how it’s difficult to find individuals who perform high

quality tattooing. “We are very grateful and fortunate to have talented individuals like Vinnie fulfill this service to women here on the West Coast in addition to his native Maryland,” he said. Bolitho continued, “It’s important for women to utilize all the resources available to them and realize that they are not alone.”

Students work on Give and Surf program A new school year commences and many exciting opportunities emerge for PAE students beyond their rigorous, cross-curricular, project-based classes they have come to know and enjoy. Students have the opportunity to get involved in sports, music, and volunteering. Service and making education come to life have been Pacific Academy's cornerstone for years. Pacific Academy embeds Service into the curriculum knowing the benefits that giving back can provide while also building leadership skills. Through student-driven projects, students will lead and participate in a variety of community service projects throughout San Diego and beyond. This year, students will be working on a year-long service project that will end with learning truly coming to life by getting to visit the organization they have been collaborating with all year, Give and Surf, a locally embedded 501(c)(3) nonprofit of volunteers that provides sustainable empowerment to indigenous communities in Bocas del Toro, Panama, through education and community development. Thus far, the organization, with the help of volunteers, has build the first community playground and

library, performed community construction, installed a water catchman tank, and led all preschool educational programs. Give and Surf, provides substantive, handson, real world assistance and programs to the indigenous Ngobe people. Neil Christiansen, the founder notes, "We offer enriching volunteer and internship opportunities to give back to others and give back to yourself in the remote islands of Bocas del Toro." Give and Surf, Inc. is a small organization that “relies heavily on having individuals or groups come down for the experience,” Christiansen said. “That is why it is so important to build an unforgettable experience for the volunteer.” Pacific Academy is thrilled to join Give and Surf this year. Students will learn a great deal about Panama, Latin America, Nonprofits and more all

while proactively creating and living out their volunteerism. Pacific Academy is always looking for ways to give back, ground leaning, and make education memorable. Another wonderful example was led by our English Teacher, Mrs. Emma Bardin. As a part of PAE’s commitment to cross-curricular learning, earlier this year PAE English World Literature students conducted a scientific experiment using microfluidics and wrote a scientific paper about their findings. Their experiment was just referenced in a high-impact scientific journal this summer. Biomedical engineer Dr. David Bardin, who specializes in microfluidics and ran the experiment with PAE students, published his article in Lab on a Chip in which he discusses the microfluidic experiment PAE students conducted in English World Literature. PAE’s EWL experiment and scientific papers are truly cutting edge! With an exciting year ahead filled with more project-based learning and volunteering locally and internationally, now is the time for students to find their passion and seize the opportunity to be themselves at Pacific Academy, Encinitas!

Chargers finish preseason, finalize their roster By Tony Cagala

SAN DIEGO — Head coach Mike McCoy empathizes with the players he’ll have to let go from the Chargers organization today. “The decisions aren’t always easy,” McCoy said. Speaking at a press conference on Friday, he said he’s been cut a number of times himself as a player “way back when.” It’s never easy, he added. “It’s not a fair business, I’ll say that,” said McCoy. “Things happen in this business. There’s all sorts of things that come into play here. Roster spots, they aren’t easy to come by.” McCoy added that he was proud of the football team for doing everything they asked of the players and that he thought it was a very productive offseason. “And now it’s at the tough time of the business for us as coaches and as an organization, the personnel department, everything, of making some very tough decisions moving forward of who the best 53 are for the football team,” he said. By the NFL-imposed 1 p.m. deadline on Aug. 30, those players who wouldn’t be a part of the Chargers campaign this year were leaving Chargers Park with the hopes of finding another team

to play for. McCoy said that a lot of guys can leave the team’s facility holding their heads up. With the regular season nearing, the Chargers will again face

the Cardinals in Arizona, Sept. 8, which they wrapped up the preseason with a 12-9 win against on Thursday. Until then, McCoy said they’ve got extra time to study

film and let guys take a deep breath and rest their bodies. “It’s a long season, and this is the first week and we’re going to take it one week at a time, put great plans together as a staff,

and have a great week of practice as a player and an organization, and just take it one week at a time,” McCoy said. Dwight Freeney, looking to return to the playing field after a knee injury took him out midway through last season, watching from the sidelines, said he didn’t think, from a preparation standpoint, there wasn’t anything to gain from the preseason game. “They’re (Cardinals) no dummies,” he said. They ran a basic plan, so did we, he added. As with every season, the Chargers will have some rookies to start the season. But McCoy said there won’t be much leeway when it comes to their play. “There are going to be some young players playing, we understand that, but they’ve got a job to do,” McCoy said. “Veterans will make mistakes also, but we set a standard here on how we want to play.” McCoy said there are 52 other teammates a player is accountable to. “It’s not a matter of leeway. It’s a matter of doing your job, so if they don’t know what to do, it’s the coach’s job to coach them the right way, and if they’re not ready to play, don’t play ‘em,” he said.

Roberts is optimistic he can turn around El Camino football sports talk jay paris General manager Tom Telesco is constantly tinkering with the Chargers, making sure they land in a desirable place. Telesco’s resting spot? It’s somewhere that shows Telesco is one smart cookie. “Rancho Santa Fe,’’ he replied on where he calls home. Telesco is a wheeler-dealer by trade but is

there a better swap than Indianapolis for Rancho Santa Fe? No disrespect to the Indy, but Telesco’s commute would make others envious. Telesco, a former Colts executive, is no longer green in the GM chair. Entering year two with the Chargers, Telesco is eager for the season, and can Monday night get here soon enough? “We’re ready to go to see what we’ve got,’’ Telesco said. After a summer of workouts doesn’t Telesco have a handle on his 53 players? He does and he doesn’t.


son, which they won a playoff game at Cincinnati. The Broncos ended the Chargers’ season the following week, but by all accounts, the work of Telesco and McCoy was a hit. But last year was just that and hello 2014, which starts Monday in Arizona. The Chargers might have a better team, but considering their daunting schedule, they might not match last year’s 9-7 mark. Make sense? What’s easy to understand is the Chargers share the AFC West with two teams, which reached last season’s playoffs — the Broncos and Chiefs. So when Telesco eyes the division, wouldn’t his sight line go to his two most challenging rivals? “I see the San Diego

“It’s all on paper right now,’’ he said. “I don’t know until we start playing games and then we will see. Right now it is just practices and preseason games. “But overall the guys that were here last year, they have a better feel for what is expected of them and what their roles are going to be. Last year it took us a little while to figure that all out, which is normal.’’ Not only was Telesco a 2013 fresh face, but Mike McCoy was starting his first year as a head coach at any level. The Chargers were coming off a three-year rut of missing the playoffs and what the newbies — Telesco and McCoy — would bring was anyone’s guess. Few had the Chargers advancing to the postsea-

Chargers, but you do have to play everybody else, too,’’ Telesco said. “You can’t build your roster just to beat one or two teams. If you put together a balanced enough roster you should be able to compete against everybody. But it’s a tough division, obviously. “But I’m just worried about us right now. We got enough problems to worry about.’’ Every GM frets, and Telesco, 41, is no different — don’t let his dark hair fool you.

The pass-catchers reveal rising star Keenan Allen, but also Malcolm Floyd and he’s played a 16-game schedule once in 10 years. The backfield is loaded with three rushers, but hopefully Ryan Mathews’ preseason fumble was an aberration and not the start of a trend. Time to check Telesco’s noggin’ again — yep, that hair is still black. “It’s the nature of the business that you are never comfortable,’’ Telesco said, and did a gray root just take hold? “Someone said, ‘Is there more pressure this year?’ Well, find me a year where there is not pressure and there is none.’’ So Telesco checks his team and the waiver wire. An NFL roster is a live, breathing beast and it’s up to Telesco to keep it well fed. “It is never really done, with injuries and constantly moving things around,’’ he said. “And you’re constantly watching performance and if the players aren’t performing the way they need to perform, we will make a move.’’ The Chargers are headed in the right direction, thanks to Telesco’s handiwork. He’s found a home with the Chargers, which is nearly as nice as hanging in Rancho Santa Fe. Contact Jay Paris at jparis8@aol.com. Follow him on Twitter at jparis_sports.

Keeping employees engaged is key to creating productivity within small businesses. Courtesy photo

Employee engagement is the secret for productivity (BPT) — One of the biggest worries for a small business owner is training and investing in quality employees and then losing them to a larger company — potentially a competitor — that might be able to offer larger salaries or better benefits. It might look like a no-win scenario for a small business to entice quality employees to stay, except for one factor — engagement. When employees are engaged in the company business, they’re less likely to jump ship, they’ll be more productive and they’ll make the company more money, according to a Hay Group Study. “Why should anyone care if they have engaged employees?” asks David Fagiano, chief operating officer for Dale Carnegie Training. “Engaged employees create superior results. A Gallup study shows that companies with more engaged employees outperform others by up to 202 percent. That translates to a substantially better bottom line.” How can a small business owner encourage his employees to become more engaged in the company? Consider the following drivers of engagement: • A sense of value: Employees who feel valued tend to be fully engaged in a company’s goals and help achieve big milestones. Supervisors have the ability to create this sense of value, which can lead to confidence, empowerment, enthusiasm and inspiration. Review how your employees are supervised. Are they trusted to do their jobs without heavy review? Do they ask for help only when needed? When requested, do they receive assistance? Finally, do employees feel their supervisors are being honest when presenting information or answering questions? According to the Dale Carnegie Training “How to Drive Employee Engagement in Small

and Mid-sized Businesses” whitepaper, 67 percent of employees deem that having help or support when needed is important, compared to 46 percent who report that compensation increases above the cost of living is important. Download the whitepaper at dalecarneg ie.com / employee - engagement. • Continued training: Investing in employee training develops a bond between the employee and the business. Additional training shows the employee there’s room to grow in the company, and that the business values his or her expertise. Plus, the company benefits by having employees learning the latest information in the industry. • Improved communication: There is a difference in opinion on how well employers communicate with employees. According to the whitepaper, employers think they do a better job of it than their workers report. Because of this discrepancy, employers need to make more effort in communicating business information. Consider holding a weekly progress report meeting or developing a newsletter. Involve employees in meetings discussing the future of the company, and give everyone tasks to help achieve the goals that are decided upon. This allows employees to feel they’re taking an ownership in the company, which will lead to them becoming more engaged. Making an employee feel like he or she is important can take the professional relationship far. “Engagement means winning the hearts as well as the minds of employees,” Fagiano says. “It’s the difference between someone in your company saying, ‘I understand where this company is going,’ versus, ‘I believe in where this company is going.’ If you can generate belief at that level, you can drive spectacular results.”

Don’t let pain and neuropathy hold you back from enjoying life.

Could this be your solution to neuropathy, numbness or burning pain? Do you have any of the following symptoms? Pins and needles feeling? Numbness in the hands or feet? Tingling or burning sensations? Weakness in the arms or legs? Sharp shooting or burning pains? If so, you may have a condition called Peripheral Neuropathy. Numbness, tingling, and pain are an extremely annoying problem. It may come and go...interrupt your sleep...and even make your arms or legs feel weak at times. Maybe you’ve even been to other doctors and they claim all the tests indicate you should feel fine. More Drugs Are Not The Solution. A common treatment for many nerve problems is the ‘take some pills and wait and see’ method. While this may be necessary for temporary relief of severe symptoms, using them long term is no way to live. Some of the more common drugs given include pain pills, anti-seizure medi-

ations, and anti-depressants — all of which can have serious side effects. My name is Dr. Jeff Listiak. I’ve been helping people with neuropathy and nerve problems for more than eight years. Neuropathy can be caused by Diabetes, Chemotherapy, Toxins, etc. It may also be compounded by poor posture or a degenerating spine stressing the nerves. The good news is that NeuropathyDR™ combination treatments have proven effective in helping patients with these health problems. Here’s what one of my patients had to say: “I had been feeling very sharp pains in my feet… they just felt like they were on fire. I just couldn’t stand it… every night for the last year or two. I’m so excited today to tell Dr. Jeff that four days in a row I have felt no pain whatsoever.” — Marilyn You could soon be enjoying life...without those aggravating and life-disrupting

problems. Don’t Miss This Limited Time Offer. It’s time for you to find out if NeuropathyDR™ treatment protocols could be your neuropathy solution. For the next 14 days only, $49 will get you a complete NeuropathyDR™ Analysis that I normally charge $197 for! What does this offer include? Everything. • An in-depth discussion about your health and wellbeing where I will listen… really listen…to the details of your case. • A posture, spine, range of motion, and nerve function examination. • A full set of specialized x-rays (if necessary) to determine if a spinal problem is contributing to your pain or symptoms. • A thorough analysis of your exam and x-ray findings so we can start mapping out your plan to being pain and numbness free. • And, if after the thorough analysis we feel we can’t help you, we’ll tell you that right away.

Until Sept. 19, 2014 you can get everything I’ve listed here for only $49. So, you’re saving a considerable amount by taking me up on this offer. Call (760) 230-2949 now. We can get you scheduled for your NeuropathyDR™ Analysis as long as there is an opening before Sept. 19. Our office is located just off Interstate 5 and Encinitas Boulevard. When you call, tell us you’d like to come in for the NeuropathyDR™ Analysis so we can get you on the schedule and make sure you receive proper credit for this special analysis. Sincerely, Dr. Jeff Listiak, D.C.

Dogs take to the water for surf day REGION — Helen Woodward Animal Center’s annual Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon, will be held from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sept. 7 at Dog Beach in Del Mar. This year, in addition to the “Hang 20” competition, local surf dogs will be part of Stand Up Paddleboarding Pups. Helen Woodward Animal Center’s canine surf contest will feature more than 80 dogs surfing in four different weigh-class competitions. Winners are selected based upon their ability to ride the waves, have fun and stay on their boards. Celebrities, surf pros and aficionados will judge each heat. Other dog-and-family friendly activities scheduled include the Beach Bum Bikini Babe Canine Costume Contest; more than 70 interactive vendor booths and a children’s activity area — with crafts, face painting and games. Also on the roster, Stand Up Paddleboard riders will have the opportunity to show off the hottest new dog sport hitting the water. Helen Woodward Animal Center is leading the pack by hosting a Paddle Paws Parade beginning at 10:15 a.m. Laura Nativo, pet trainer, and host of Hallmark Channel’s “Home & Family,” who is also a Stand Up Paddleboarder, will serve as Paddleboard Ambassador, leading the parade along with her Pomeranian, Preston.
