Janet Lawless Christ inspired by ‘Bossify’ By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — Emmy-award winning journalist Abbey Gibb of San Diego’s Fox 5 News prepares to launch her own online television network named AbbeyGibbTV. com. One of her upcoming shows, ““Bossify”,” inspired Rancho Santa Fe resident Janet Lawless Christ so much that she decided in addition to sponsoring the show it could also be filmed at her home. While the online network embraces a mindful approach to daily living, “Bossify” extends this concept by interviewing

is with the world. You see a glamorous, blonde, blueeyed bombshell, and for better or for worse, you make an impression,” Lawless Christ said. “Then you learn that she was a war correspondent and how she has this vision which I think is way overdue of empowering women of all sectors, shapes, sizes, socioeconomics situations, and educational levels. It’s about empowering them to be their best.” Lawless Christ, who is also a real estate agent affiliated with the Rancho Santa Fe office of Coldwell Banker Residential

Ranch leukemia survivor develops new data driven cancer procedure By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — While each person responds to their cancer diagnosis in their own way, one common sensation de-

scribed by many is a foglike emotional numbness. Blaise Barrelet felt this very same sensation following his Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) diagnosis.

When the fog lifted, he embarked on his own quest to find the best cancer treatments which also inspired him to build a company to help other cancer patients.

A resident of Rancho Santa Fe for the last 18 years, Barrelet moved to San Diego 21 years ago. A native of France, Barrelet was instantly drawn to the Ranch’s topography which he found reminiscent of the French countryside. Considered a trailblazer in website analytics, Barrelet is regarded for his background in technology. After he founded WebSideStory in 1996, it underwent a successful IPO in 2004. Barrelet is a cancer survivor and described by many as a serial entrepreneur. Nonetheless, it was his analytical mind that was the driving force in not settling for his oncologist’s recommendation of a chemotherapy protocol in addressing his cancer four years ago. “So I started doing all my research. Luckily, I found out that one of the top three leaders in research for CLL was right here in San Diego at The TURN TO SURVIVOR ON 16

successful women who encourage and motivate. According to Gibb, the founder, April 5 is the full incarnation date of her network launch with her other shows also including Tired Girl Recipes. “I’ve always had a calling in my life to help others,” Gibb said. “Since I was about 10, I knew somehow that I was meant to be a global teacher of some kind.” The vision Gibb created for in her life morphed into a network that would dedicate hours to educate and inspire others through the collaboration of exceptional people. “We educate in order to inspire and then we empower you to do the same,” Gibb said. It was Gibb’s heartfelt enthusiasm that netted the attention of Lawless Christ. “I think Abbey’s skills are fascinating and amazing in that if you look at Abbey, you don’t think about how connected she

Brokerage, is one of the 15 women interviewed on “Bossify”. She described it as a very moving experience because to be authentic is an emotional situation. “It’s just so easy to smile and say what you know is the right thing to say rather than really answer a question authentically,” she said. “And to have the cameras rolling while that’s happening and to know that you’re not going to be the one to edit this -- somebody else is going to edit it, and it’s going to be there forever.” Lawless Christ admits viewers may be surprised. And that’s fine because everyone has a story to tell. “One person’s freedom is another person’s launching pad,” she said. Lawless Christ shared how “Bossify” is relatable to everyone. She doesn’t believe it’s just for women because the show focuses on optimism, empowerment, determination and TURN TO BOSSIFY ON 16

Fiscal reforms needed at MWD By Mark Muir

Real estate prices driving moves from the state California Focus By Thomas D. Elias


f you’re a millennial, now aged 18 to 35, there’s a good chance the only major city in California you’re very much interested in moving to is San Francisco. That’s because it’s largely walkable, with plenty of amenities like singles bars and gorgeous parks. And also a lot of high-paying, hightech jobs if you qualify. Millenials may be willing to double- and triple-up so they can live where they like despite high rents, but that same cost factor is driving an unprecedented share of them away from California, says a new study from the Apartment List website (apartmentlist.com/rentonomics/millennial-population-trends/). When they get ready to buy, those same millennials are forced out of high-priced cities like San Francisco, Santa Barbara and the coastal parts of Los Angeles, adds the CoreLogic data analysis firm (corelogic.com/ blog/authors/archana-pradha n / 2 016 / 11 / where -a re households-in-high-cost-markets-buying-homes.aspx#. WDx2TVwl3mc). This scene is not unique to California’s higher-priced cities, but also occurs in New York, Chicago’s tonier areas, Boston and Washington, D.C. But it could lead to serious problems for California companies wanting to hire or retain the brightest members of the young-adult generation. In San Francisco and the Silicon Valley, where prices have skied in the last three years, 50 out of every 100 households that apply for new home mortgages are buying in nearby counties like Alameda and Contra Costa, where prices are significantly lower.

Contra Costa’s median sales price over the last year, for example, was less than half San Francisco’s for comparable properties. Now this problem is spreading to nearby Alameda County, home to cities like Oakland and Berkeley, where 34 percent of home loan applications are for areas even farther from the Bay Area’s urban core. In Los Angeles, meanwhile, the millennial population decreased by 7.4 percent between 2005 and 2015, with many 18-to-35s decamping to places like Austin, Texas, Charlotte, N.C., and Houston. The technology industry is strong in those places, but real estate prices and rents are half or less than for comparable properties in the most trendy parts of Los Angeles. Overall, says CoreLogic, home prices were up 71 percent in California in that time, with the median statewide home price in mid-2016 reaching $428,000. There is no backlash yet, mostly because of foreign buyers, who tend to be among their countries’ affluent, seeking a safe place to invest their riches. The leading buyers of this type have lately been mainland Chinese. “This makes it harder for the average person to make a living (in California),” said Sam Khater, a CoreLogic economist. “That means less teachers, fire fighters, retail workers and more. It’s causing the entire state to be more expensive.” Or, as a Silicon Valley executive complained earlier this year, “I pay some of my people with master’s degrees $70,000 and $80,000 a year and they still have no hope of buying a house anywhere near where they work.” Some locales are trying to compensate for this by subsidizing teacher housing, from kindergarten to the

college level. For sure, real estate prices are a recruiting barrier when companies and schools seek to hire top talent from places like Texas and Arizona, where median home prices are barely half California’s level. Some places are trying to solve the problem with affordable housing, generally apartments or condominium units that builders are required to include in new developments along with market-rate housing. This kind of affordable property usually bears a resale price limit, with city and school employees often getting priority on the long waiting lists for them. But those same new developments, when placed in already crowded urban areas, add to traffic volume which is not notably reduced even by new public transit that has opened in parts of Los Angeles and other areas. It’s a real quandary for California: The state needs talented young workers to fuel its innovative industries, but even those who earn more than $200,000 yearly have difficulty qualifying for mortgages on homes selling for more than $1 million, increasingly common in this state. But acting to artificially reduce real estate prices would impact the resources of millions of Californians who have lived here for a generation or two. So far, there is no answer to this dilemma, which sees more and more companies forced to open satellite facilities in more affordable states.

Treated water rates set by the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California have doubled over the past decade, due in part to unrestrained fiscal practices at the agency — and ratepayers are about to be on the hook for a lot more unless MWD’s outof-control spending can be stopped. The Los Angeles-based district is the nation’s largest water agency, serving nearly 20 million people across Southern California. In San Diego County, our reliance on MWD water has been reduced by more than half over the past few decades due to strategic investments in drought-resilient water supplies. But we still receive about 40 percent of our region’s water from MWD, and it’s important to everyone in San Diego County and across Southern California that MWD become a transparent, fiscally responsible partner for the long haul. Unfortunately, that’s not currently the case. MWD’s own data show a serious lack of financial restraint: • MWD overcharged ratepayers $847 million more than the agency’s own budgets said was needed from 2012-2015. • MWD overspent its budget by $1.2 billion from 2013-2016 on things like buying Bay-Delta islands ($175 million) and turf replacement ($420 million). • In 2016, MWD authorized $900 million in unplanned borrowing to pay for its overspending. If that wasn’t enough cause for concern, a new study commissioned by the Water Authority highlights another significant

issue: Data from MWD and its member agencies show MWD’s existing programs and projects can meet water demand projections under all of the hydrological conditions assessed through 2040. That means MWD’s multi-billion dollar plans to develop new supplies are not needed to meet its member agencies’ current or future demands. Instead, MWD’s continued overspending would significantly increase the financial burden on ratepayers and create significant stranded assets. The study details how MWD is undercounting local supplies being developed by water agencies across Southern California. It shows that MWD is grossly overstating how much water its member agencies plan to purchase by more than 300,000 acre-feet in average years (2020-2040), and that MWD isn’t accounting for more than 30 local water agency projects that are in the pipeline now and will further reduce demand for MWD’s water. MWD’s fiscal mismanagement goes beyond the illegal rates set by MWD that have been successfully challenged by the Water Authority in court. A Superior Court judge ruled in 2015 that MWD set illegal rates from 2011-2014, forcing San Diego County ratepayers to subsidize water costs across Southern California. The judge ordered MWD to pay the Water Authority more than $243 million and to set only legal rates in the future. The appellate court is expected to hear the case this spring, with a decision expected later this year. Two additional lawsuits covering rates from 2015-2018 are pending because MWD has

refused to limit its rates to the costs of the services it provides. As one of MWD’s biggest customers, the Water Authority has tried for years to work with MWD staff and board members to rein in spending on unbudgeted items such as the $420 million turf removal/conservation program. However, MWD’s refusal to reform its practices leaves us no choice but to raise public awareness about fiscal practices at MWD that will erode our economy and quality of life. That’s why Water Authority Board officers in recent months have sent a series of letters to elected officials across Southern California informing them about MWD’s overcharges, overspending and unplanned borrowing. Many of the cities served by MWD don’t have direct representation at MWD, and many city leaders aren’t aware of how freely the agency is spending their residents’ money. In addition, we are launching an education campaign called “Stop the Spending!” designed to improve fiscal accountability and governance at MWD. Together, we are shining a spotlight on MWD’s flawed business practices in hopes of protecting residents and businesses from needless increases in their water bills. Note: More information about the Stop the Spending! campaign is at mwdfacts.com. Mark Muir is an Encinitas City Councilmember and chair of the Board of Directors, San Diego County Water Authority.

Historian takes part in RSF walking tours By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — Guests who want to embark on a walking tour at the Rancho Santa Fe Historical Society are in for a special treat since Historian Vonn Marie May is leading the private tours. The Ranch’s rich history of Spanish Colonial Revival-style buildings is a leading attraction as well as the regarded architecture of Lilian Rice, the 1910 alumnus from the University of California, Berkley. According to Rancho

Santa Fe Historical Society’s Executive Administrator Sharon Alix, May begins the tour at the Society’s headquarters at the La Flecha House covering the timeline of Rancho Santa Fe’s development. “Vonn uses the timeline as an explanation of the history of the development of this land of four different cultures,” Alix said. The timeframes covered are the Spanish Mission Period, Mexican Republic Period, Rancho San Dieguito and Early Ameri-

can Period, Santa Fe Railway Period, to the Santa Fe Land Improvement Company. May shared how the quick history offers excellent information before the tour. “The walk pretty much concentrates on Lilian Rice and her work,” May said. “I put her in the center of each dialog for each site.” May pointed out while the tour essentially lasts under a couple of hours, she likes to spend a fair amount of time explaining

the broad pattern of history when the context is important to the site. “For example, La Flecha, which means arrow, was the first residence in the Village,” she said, noting how the designer and architect was Rice. From there, the natural progression is to visit Rice’s architecture studios. Following that visit, the tour takes a beeline to the “Row Houses.” “The Row Houses were TURN TO HISTORIAN ON 16

Many of us have some degree of arthritis, with aching, stiffness, or swelling in one or more of our joints in the morning or after our favorite sports or leisure activities. Arthritis is a common disease, found in all vertebrates and dating back to the dinosaur age. Any significant joint injury or surgery can precipitate arthritis, releasing enzymes that gradually destroy cartilage over the years. In our health-conscious, active culture, arthritis is becoming a problem for both the young and the young-at-heart, limiting our participation in the activities we love. Regenerative therapies such as prolotherapy, platelet rich plasma (PRP), and adult stem cell therapies are now known to help arthritis sufferers relieve their pain, improve function, and even, in some cases, restore some of the lost cartilage. In many studies, over 80 percent of patients have shown improvement — both in levels of pain and in ability to function and enjoy life — as a result of these non-surgical, natural treatments. Even patients with bone-on-bone arthritis frequently benefit from the pain relief regenerative therapies bring through soft tissue healing, joint stabilization, decreased inflammation, and actions on local nerves. Yet neither the most advanced stem cell

Prolotherapy (dry needling and the injection of dextrose or other solutions to stimulate the area that needs repair and start the healing cascade): - stabilizes joints - strengthens ligaments and tendons - directly controls nerve pain. These therapies, used alone or in combination, can slow arthritis progression, help correct instability or damage, and control pain. While those patients with more advanced disease can still obtain some relief, the earlier you can start blocking destructive enzymes, healing tissue injury, and outsmarting arthritis before it starts, the better you’ll feel, and the more (and longer) you’ll enjoy those activities you love.

Helping those in need

Is it possible we’re the only creatures in the universe?

reat news! There’s more progress in the push to serve North County’s vulnerable populations. This week, the new Carlsbad Service Center will celebrate its official opening. The 2,500 square foot building, which was secured with support from the Carlsbad City Council and a $600,000 federal grant, is a substantial improvement from the mobile trailer that was previously used for the center. The facility will be operated by Interfaith Community Services, North County’s largest social services agency. I asked my friends at Interfaith to update me on the details of this facility after I learned about it last fall. Compared to the old trailer, the new center will provide additional capacity to meet more client needs, such as storage, social and employment services. Federal funding fully covered the purchase of the building, as well as the improvements Interfaith made to the facility, including a computer lab, open office spaces, meeting rooms and a refrigerator-freezer to support healthy food distributions. Operating hours will also be extended to serve a greater number of clients. Available services include computer lab access, emergency food supplies, interview apparel, case management, job connections, and access to social services. I’m told that all clients at the Carlsbad Service Center will also have access to Interfaith’s network of programs across North County, as well as referrals to their partner organizations. Kudos to the Carlsbad City Council and Interfaith on partnering together to build the new Service Center. As our community continues to grow, the importance of meeting human needs grows too. I’ve previously written in this column about the growing suburban poverty and homeless population in North County. Every city in our part of the region has to do their part, particularly when it comes to helping people help themselves. In a press release, Interfaith states that the new Carlsbad Service Center will do just that. “We’ve had a presence in coastal North San Diego TURN TO NORTHBOUND ON 16

Award-winning poet visits the RSF Library By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — The Rancho Santa Fe Library welcomed poet and author Lesléa Newman to showcase her most recent work and be on hand for a book signing. A prolific writer, Newman introduced her book of poems, “I Carry My Mother,” which embraces heart-driven words about her own experience in caring for her ailing mother. A resident of Massachusetts, Newman said her work explores a daughter’s journey through her mother’s illness and death; and, how she carries on without her in every sense of the word. “My mom died four and a half years ago, and so I started writing this book about her while I was taking care of her. I continued writing about her after she died,” Newman said. Newman wanted to convey to readers the stages of grief in hopes that others would get some comfort so that they may not feel so alone if they are experiencing the same. “Losing a mother is a very profound life-changing experience like no other, no matter how old you are,” said Newman, adding how she was in her late 50s when her mother passed away.


For Newman, she believes her poem, “I Carry My Mother,” delivers a strong message. In this piece, she talks about all the ways she carries her, including physically. “Because physically, I’m very much like her,” she said. Another poem which resonates with readers is, My Mother Has My Heart. The first line reads: My mother has my heart and I have hers. “I feel like I carry her in my heart. I carry her in my body. We both have the same little brown beauty mark right here on our chins,” said Newman, pointing to it. “And of course I carry her spirit with me.” On a personal level, Newman said that writing this book helped keep her mom emotionally close after she passed away. “I felt her presence very much when I was writing the poems,” Newman said. In many respects, “I Carry My Mother,” is a tribute to her mother. Newman shared how her mother wanted to be a writer and actually had a short story published in a high school magazine. She also had a penchant for poetry, which her daughter has, too. Newman admits when she completed, “I Carry

My Mother,” it was difficult because there was a sense of losing her mother again on a different level. But those feelings dissipate when she visits a community for a reading such as her experience in Rancho Santa Fe. “It’s like I bring her (mother) with me so that’s very comforting,” Newman said.

Oh, they’re out there somewhere. I would be delighted if an intelligent life form from out in the galaxies would make its presence known, but in the nicest possible way, of course. Sure, I’ve seen “Independence Day,” but for anyone we are going to have to actually live with, I’m really hoping for “E.T.” I am, being of sound mind and body, one of those who actually believes that they have been watching us for some time. I’m just not sure what they are waiting for. I, too, would like some absolute proof, but I’ll settle for intelligent conjecture for now. When they do make a formal appearance, I’ll be one of those on top of a building, waving that “Hi. Can you drop by for lunch?” sign. If I get zapped, at least I won’t have to stick around and clean up the mess. I have several reasons to believe that we aren’t

Calling All Soccer Players! Get Ready for Fall ATTACK Recreational Soccer Online Registration is now open for those wishing to sign up for Fall Recreational Soccer through the Attack Recreational program at www.rsfsoccer. com. The program has been developed for children ages 4 to 15 and is uniquely designed to build upon individual skills so that each player can grow and improve throughout the season. The program emphasizes fun while learning the game of soccer and the meaning of sportsmanship. Attack annually serves close to 500 children in their Recreational program. Players who register by May 6th online or at our Walk-In Registration will be able to request a certain coach or team and will be guaranteed the opportunity to play. The Attack Rec teams play against each other and the other local clubs (such as Solana Beach, Cardiff and Encinitas). Games are

held on local fields on Saturday’s during the fall with practices during the week. Registration for fall soccer can be completed online or the forms can be downloaded from the website. All forms must be completed and new players must include a copy of their birth certificate or passport. Walk-in Registration is being held on Saturday, May 6th at R. Roger Rowe Elementary School from 9:00 a.m. to noon. Coach and Team Requests will be accepted on a first come basis as long as space is available. Forms will be available at the walk-in registration or you will need to bring the signed forms that you can download from the online registration. This year we are offering a $25 discount to volunteer coaches that sign up to coach by May 6th. The Attack Recreation program is volunteer driven and relies on parents and other adults to coach and sponsor the different teams. This program has been in existence for more than 30 years and is committed to providing a high quality youth soccer program for all children. Over the years we have strived to keep the

registration fees affordable for all players through our Sponsorship Program. These tax deductible sponsorships go towards the cost of running our quality program by helping with uniforms, fields, referee fees and in providing assistance to children who want to play but do not have the financial resources to do so. We offer different levels of sponsorship starting at $500. To review our Sponsorship options, check out our Rec Sponsorship Package on our website. Registration for our Summer Camps is now available online, as well. You can sign up for the camps at the time you register for the Fall program, or register separately by going to the Camps and Clinics page under the Recreational program on the website. All campers will receive a customized ball and t-shirt and we do take walk-ins. Attack also has a Youth Soccer Referee program for children 10 and older. Training is provided and these young referees are used in the fall to referee Rec games on Saturdays.

to kind of do demos of and maybe send them off to BMI or maybe Sony Music and see if one of their artists would ever like to record them,” Sutherland explained in an early April phone interview. Instead, he recorded a couple of the songs with good friend Jude Cole, who had other ideas once he heard Sutherland sing them. “Jude said ‘I don’t think you should give these away so fast. I really like them and they’re really personal to you,” Sutherland recalled. “Maybe we could do a couple more and maybe you’d like to make an album. And I remember laughing at him. ‘That’s ridiculous. That will never happen because I’m clearly aware that actors doing music has never been received very well and I didn’t want to put myself in that position.’” But now Sutherland is getting ready to head out on tour. The album that Cole suggested they make, “Down in the Hole,” is finished and set for release this summer. It turns out, Cole and Sutherland decided over a couple of drinks to record a couple more of the songs, and Sutherland started to like what he was hearing. Soon Cole was producing and bringing his songwriting input to the 11 songs that make up “Down in the Hole.” “He (Cole) basically took the songs and arranged them, like a producer would,” Sutherland said.

“He really gave the songs structure.” Sutherland describes the sound of the “Down in the Hole" album as “Americana with a country twist.” "Not Enough Whiskey" and "Shirley Jean" are spare, largely acoustic ballads in the traditional country vein. Sutherland’s weathered baritone voice nicely fits the tone of the songs. “(The title song) ‘Down in the Hole’ is... it’s a rock track to me or a country-rock track to me," Sutherland said. "‘Can’t Stay Away,’ I would say the same thing. A couple of love songs are much more Jackson Browne sounding than they are traditional (country) – and I’m certainly not comparing myself to Jackson Browne — but just that tone, almost like the California rock sound as opposed to straight-up country.” Sutherland, the 50-year-old son of acting great Donald Sutherland, has, of course, made his name so far as an actor in television, movies and theater. But he’s had a long-running interest and involvement in music, first writing songs while in a band as a teenager. “I can still remember the first song I ever wrote,” he said. “I play it every once in awhile to make my friends laugh. I think it was called ‘Mother, Won’t You Leave Me Alone.’” After becoming friends with Cole — an accomTURN TO SUTHERLAND ON 17

Rosanna’s Pasta rocks my Lick the Plate world


osanna’s reminds me of a joint I would find in an urban neighborhood, not a strip mall on El Camino Real in Encinitas. It’s a narrow storefront with a nice selection of wine and other Italian products up front, followed by a couple of coolers filled with fresh pasta, olives, cheese, dishes to go, and Italian meats. Next up the register, and then the kitchen that appears to be double the size of the front of the house. The kitchen’s size is a key indicator they serve

A new twist on fast-food coming to Encinitas By Rebecca Sykes

ENCINITAS — Most know eating fast food isn’t the healthiest option for one to eat. However, plantbased food is becoming wildly popular and proven to be a healthier option. And now one local vegan fast food restaurant is changing the game of fast food. Plant Power Fast Food has been open in Ocean Beach since January 2015, with another location opening in Encinitas by the end of May or early June. The fast food joint is home to many fan favorite

fast food choices including mini corn dogs, “chicken� wings, “burgers� and fries. Plant Power Fast Food owner’s Jeff Harris, Mitch Wallis and Zach Vouga wanted to show customers anything can be made vegan. “You can go vegan today and not feel like you’re sacrificing the comfort foods you enjoy,� Vouga said.

People have their expectations and I've had to learn to incorporate them in my work and at the same time ignore them and listen to my inner muse. It's an interesting balancing act, but after 28 years, I think I'm getting it.” If you’re in Austin, stop by to see the Cathedral of Junk, but call first: (512) 299-7413. Donations accepted.

is mother christened it the Cathedral of Junk and its congregation has grown steadily in the last few years. They come in a steady stream — in singles and small groups. The cathedral has become a shrine for the curious and a venue for weddings, bachelor parties, school field trips and Girl Scout gatherings. The archbishop of the cathedral, Vince Hannemann, welcomes all and asks only that you believe in keeping Austin weird (the Texas capital's unofficial motto) and that you make an appointment. "Just let everyone know they can't just show up," Hannemann emphasized as he ushered us through the aisles and up, down and around this 32-foot-high structure. "They have to call first." We did — and the cathedral was the first stop on our recent visit to Austin. We perused and cruised slowly in an attempt to take it all in — an impossibility, really. So much detail; so little time. This monument contains thousands of parts, pieces and whole items — shiny and dull — whose death sentences have been commuted in order to serve new purposes. There are Barbie dolls, bicycle rims, CDs, rubber duckies, a toilet, dial telephones, circuit boards, tennis rackets, plastic dishes, broken pottery, streets signs, hubcaps, and perhaps

Vince Hannemann of Austin, Texas, says he has no favorite section of his Cathedral of Junk, so named by his mother. “I just like the way people interact with it, especially the kids. They know what it is.”

E’Louise Ondash is a freelance writer living in North County. Tell her about your travels at eondash@ coastnewsgroup.com

The Cathedral of Junk stands about 32 feet tall and has been featured in productions that include the film “Spy Kids 3D,” a Bank of America commercial and numerous family Christmas photos. Hannemann never has to search for materials because “people bring me the stuff quicker than I can use it.” Not everything makes the cut, though. “I’m not a hoarder. There will be stuff on my curb come bulky-trash week.” Photos by

fittingly, a large plastic Virgin Mary lawn ornament. Climbing to the top of the cathedral, visitors will see wired or tied together or embedded in cement a comb, pliers, horseshoes, pottery pieces, scattered shells, a flashy-colored fish, glass soda bottles, a tiny wrench and a heart-shaped cookie cutter. Perhaps more amazing is that the cathedral survived last night's fierce rainstorm and the area’s reported 3,000 lightning strikes. Is it not a miracle that the pyramid of crutches at the cathedral’s peak was not fried or that this entire tabernacle of treasures did not go up in flames? Back in 2010, life in this Austin backyard was not so tranquil. Neighbors who didn’t agree with Hannemann’s definition of art called the city of Aus-

tin to complain that the cathedral was too big and the pilgrims were too numerous. There followed attempts to dismantle the cathedral with regulations, inspections and permits. Seven years ago this month, Hannemann’s saga made it into the Wall Street Journal. “I shared the front page with Barack Obama,” he told us. The city forced him to remove a portion of his yard art — about 40 tons worth. How much is left? “Based on the area (of the part that was removed), I'd estimate that the cathedral may weigh upwards of 200-plus tons, but that's only a guess.” In the end, the city’s engineer wasn't interested in how much his yard art weighed, but “only how much weight it could hold,”

Hannemann said. “He tested it by hauling up 400 gallons of water and it didn’t collapse so he was satisfied … and he signed off and that was that. Everything I've done since 2010 is within the (city’s) parameters. After six years of restoration, I consider the cathedral 99 percent done. There are a few final touches left, but nothing major. I've transitioned to small sculptures.” Not everyone thinks the cathedral should remain static. “I've noticed that people don't want me to be finished,” Hannemann explained. “They want more floors and rooms. Always more. Plus they feel free to tell me how I can run this place better. I should hire someone … set hours … charge more … have T-shirts and bumper stickers … a Facebook thing. I

I’m somewhat a creature of habit when it comes to Rosanna’s, though I have been spreading my wings of late. My go-to is the meatball sandwich (which is more of a sub or hoagie than a traditional sandwich — but whatever) with extra provolone cheese — though that’s just a personal preference and it’s really fine as they offer it. The soft roll with the crunchy edges, house made meatballs and sauce with cheese is on my mind on a regular basis. They also offer a hot sausage with peppers and eggplant Parmesan in this category as well, both of which are on my short list. The lasagna is as good as I’ve had anywhere, period. It’s just so perfect. I prefer to order it hot to go and by the time I get it home, it’s still warm, but the cheese has solidified to the point where it’s easier to cut slices while holding it’s shape. I’m

She also inspired Lawless Christ with her authenticity. “I think that a lot of people hide in their own cocoon,” Lawless Christ said. “Abbey doesn’t hide. She shines brightly.” Gibb describes “Bossify” as a new kind of interview show that people have never seen before. Rather than just interviewing female leaders about their success, they actually investigate together the definition of success itself. For Gibb, there is no set marker on what success looks like.

And over time, the definition of success can evolve. Guests on “Bossify” are asked the same five questions, Gibb said. “It’s interesting because you have sort of that rubric. You know what’s coming and yet you don’t know what’s coming,” Gibb said. The motto for “Bossify” is bold, brilliant and brave. “So boldly and brilliantly go there; and, bravely be yourself,” Gibb said.

not sure if this is a serving for two or not but it’s very difficult to resist eating the whole thing. If I do exercise some self-control, it’s equally good cold later on as breakfast the next morning. In fact, cold lasagna from Rosanna’s is a go-to fixer the day after a big night out. It’s kind of in the same category as cold pizza but much more satisfying. Trust me on this one; it’s all that and then some. Spinach lasagna is also an option but as of this writing I’ve not tried that one yet. There are 11 varieties of homemade pasta available with as many selections of sauces and toppings. I’ve only had the pesto but would bet that any combination you select is going to work. They have a nice guide on their website should you wonder what sauce pairs best with what variety of pasta. I did venture into Panini-land recently and kept it simple with the ham and provolone cheese and now I feel like I have another reason to go back to Rosanna’s. The bread is amazing and they chop the lettuce that gives it an even more delectable texture. I counted 11 different types of Panini

and every one looked like it was worth trying. Of the seven salads, I’ve only had the Caprese California with sliced tomato, basil, fresh mozzarella, avocado, hearts of palm with an olive oil and balsamic vinaigrette. It’s their take on the traditional Caprese and it’s damn good. Rosanna’s Pasta Shop was established in 1987 and was originally located on Coast Highway 101 in Old Encinitas so yes, it’s stood the test of time. It’s family-owned by Italian born Rosanna and her French husband Jean-Louis. My only complaint with Rosanna’s is they close a bit early at 7:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 4 p.m. on Sundays. I’ve learned to adjust though and hey, when you are this good, you keep the hours you want right? Rosanna’s is located at 270 N. El Camino Real, Suite I.

Moores Cancer Center. His name is Tom Kipps and he’s really a fantastic guy,” he said. Barrelet began to recognize the advances for a new protocol in cancer treatments: Personalized medicine by way of a tumor’s molecular profile. It was this discovery that triggered the creation of CureMatch, Inc., which is headquartered in San Diego. Barrelet is a co-founder, holds the title of chief executive officer and is chairman of the board. Barrelet explained that the software platform of CureMatch offers a decision support system in assisting oncologists by ranking the combination of cancer drugs based on the molecular profile of a patient’s tumor following a biopsy. He went on to say that once a tumor undergoes DNA sequencing, the next steps are a genetic analysis which ultimately arrives at the data-driven drug combination therapies. A patient’s oncologist can then review the information and arrive at a treatment plan that is individualized and tailored. This is important, Barrelet said, because no two cancers are alike. According to Cure-


benefit of these memorable wine events. Six of the most magnificent wines in America were lined up and poured blind so guests could debate what they tasted before being revealed. As with most regal wines of this caliber, delicious appetizers were paired with each. What we tasted was Cabernet, the ultimate West Coast varietal and the brilliantly structured red from Bordeaux, France. Campbell would pour, then paint a picture of each choice, elevating the history and credits of each. What a lineup it was! On the California side, my top pick was the 1997 Joseph Phelps “Insignia” blend from Napa Valley. This vintage was the No. 1 choice of “Wine of the Year” at Wine Spectator. This flagship wine brand for Phelps is still riding high with its new 2013. You feel the effects of 88 percent Cabernet from the Stags Leap District, Rutherford, St Helena and Oak Knoll. The wine is aged 24 months in oak, with a fabulous concentration. Critic Robert Parker gave it a 98-point rating.

APRIL 14, 2017 Match, matched combination therapy has been shown in studies to have higher response and survival rates than traditional chemotherapy or targeted monotherapies. Barrelet uses the analogy of a sinking boat and how chemo is a “bucket” to empty the water in the vessel. Personalized medicine, however, looks at the gene aberrations which created the holes and analyzes the ways to plug as many of them as possible via combination match therapy. “We know how to combine these drugs in a way that we actually try to plug every hole that is in the boat. Sometimes we succeed,” he said. “Sometimes we plug maybe 80 percent of the holes. But if you’ve got 20 percent of the holes still, it’s going to take a long time for the boat to sink.” Barrelet explained that CureMatch is combining drugs based on toxicity, on their interaction, and pathways at the molecular level. Barrelet is quick to point out how the company’s other highly regarded co-founders are Igor Tsigelny and Razelle Kurzrock. The company also notes that its technology was originally created and licensed by a multidisciplinary team at UC

San Diego Moores Cancer Center and the San Diego Supercomputer Center. It was then developed into a commercial product by CureMatch. “At CureMatch, we come back with a combination of drugs that are going to be the most impactful in a report,” Barrelet said. “We have an algorithm to find out where we are going to get the most impact. So it’s great information for an oncologist.” Currently, there are 300 FDA drugs for cancer treatment today. Barrelet said from that number, it’s estimated that there are more than four million possibilities for combination therapy. Additionally, there are roughly 500 more drugs in the FDA pipeline which will vastly increase these possibilities. “What we’re trying to do is offer oncologists more knowledge,” he said. “There are only 2.5 percent of cancer patients today that get their tumors sequenced. It’s ridiculous, but it’s changing because the price of DNA sequencing is totally going down.” Barrelet said that CureMatch is giving oncologists insight on what the best treatments are and helping patients by giving them hope.

In 2016, it was the No. 2 wine in the world at Wine Spectator, which said about the wine: “It set the benchmark for Washington Cabernet in 2012, an ideal vintage that produced wines of power and elegance.” It gave the wine 96 points.

plished songwriter and singer who released five solo album between 1987 and 2000 and has gone on to enjoy a productive career as a songwriter and producer — Sutherland and Cole founded a small record label, Ironworks, in 2002. By that time, though, acting needed to take a leading role in Sutherland’s pursuits. With a resume that included roles in such high-profile films as “Stand by Me,” “The Lost Boys,” “Young Guns I and II” and “A Few Good Men,” he was cast to portray counter-terrorist agent Jack Bauer in a Fox television series set to debut in 2001, called “24.” After nine seasons, the show ended, but not before Bauer became Sutherland’s signature role as an actor. He said “24” and the



Out’s Animal Fries, which are made out of Kennebec potatoes, their secret sauce and house made non-GMO, soy base cheddar. Another favorite is the Big Zac, also made out of non-GMO soy protein, and resembling McDonald’s Big Mac. Vouga, who also serves as the head recipe developer, stopped eating meat 13 years ago and became a strict vegan seven years ago. Vouga wanted to re-de-

Bauer role was the “gift of a lifetime” and he sensed early on that it might be big for his future. “You have to understand that for maybe seven years prior to ’24,’ my career was not going very well as an actor,” Sutherland said. “In fact, I had to stop for awhile because if I had made a couple more not great films, or bad films, it would be over. “So when ‘24’ took off, I hadn’t experienced that (sort of acclaim) since maybe ‘A Few Good Men’ or ‘Flatliners.’ That’s quite a ways back,” he said. “I remember my first reaction was don’t mess this up because it’s a real opportunity.” When “24” completed its run in 2014, it gave Sutherland an opening for other activities, including making “Down in a Hole.” Singer/guitarist Sutherland has been tour-

ing with a four-piece band. He said he plans to play the entire “Down in a Hole” album, plus a couple of songs planned for a second album and possibly a third tune that was left off of the debut album. Sutherland has had to schedule tours between work on his new ABC television series, “Designated Survivor,” which debuted last fall. Really quickly, with ‘Designated Survivor,’ every time there’s a State of the Union, it’s actually written in the Constitution, each party has to pick a Cabinet member that is sequestered and protected by the FBI in case of a disaster,” Sutherland said, explaining the premise of the show. “I think they were thinking of fire back when the Capitol building was mainly wood. And so that there would be somebody left in

the line of succession to the presidency. My character is a guy who is actually being punished and made to be the designated survivor because none of his talking points with regard to housing development in the U.S. is being used in the State of the Union. “So he and his wife spend it watching in a board room somewhere, and a terrorist attack happens and the Capitol building is destroyed and he becomes president overnight,” he said. “And the show is really an examination of what that does to his family. That is one aspect of the show. The other aspect is the incredible, the reaching back for power from other people within the government and the military, and then the investigation into who did this and what is ultimately going to be the appropriate response. It is written very well.”

fine the typical fast food restaurant to something more sustainable. “We wanted to create a paradigm shift,” Vouga said. “The current American restaurant model and specifically the fast food model is not sustainable, ethical or nutritious. Our planet simply cannot sustain the animal agriculture necessary to feed the world’s rapidly growing population and that’s a major problem. “We want to redefine the fast food sphere by

feeding people delicious food that they can feel good about on all levels,” he added. If Vouga had to choose his favorite items on the menu, it would be the Buffalo “chicken” sandwich and the New York Cheesecake. The “chicken” is made from non-GMO wheat and soy protein with ancient grains like quinoa and kamut. Vouga said he was excited to see customers be amazed with what Plant Power has to offer. “Our food really blows

their minds because a lot (customers) come in thinking that vegan food is just streamed broccoli or rice,” said Vouga. The overall goal is to open up thousands of Plant Power’s across the nation. “We’re the only vegan drive-thru chain poised for national expansion. For us this isn’t just a restaurant, it’s a revolution,” said Vouga. Plant Power Fast Food’s Encinitas location is at 411 Santa Fe Dr. Visit plantpowerfastfood.com for more information.

Padres could have a solid foundation up top sports talk jay paris


umping on the rebuilding Padres is easy as

1-2-3. But that’s for those looking to pile on. Instead, look at what’s piled atop the order. Giddy-up. Guts. Guile. Those are the three things to look for in the three Friars leading the lineup: Travis Jankowski, Manuel Margot and Wil Myers. “To me it’s an exciting brand of baseball,’’ manager Andy Green said. There’s never been a skipper more appropriately named for the can-I-seeyour-ID Padres. While Myers is the youthful face of the franchise after signing the richest deal in team history, Jankowski and Margot are the kiddies. But what all three have in common is attacking this great game in a similar manner. It’s to get on base and get on the rivals’ nerves. “They can bunt, they can steal, they can slash, they can move the ball around the yard,’’ Green said. “It’s a fun top three of the order.’’ It’s clear the Padres enter most games undermanned, and where’s the joy there? When you’re paying more players not to

punch the Petco Park clock than those dressing in its clubhouse that can be a problem. There’s no sugarcoating it. The Padres are a safe bet to run their consecutive-season streak to seven of finishing under .500. Come this fall, they may be deep on the wrong side of the ledger. But it’s baseball, where there’s a surprise around every curveball. Few though expect the Padres to zigzag their way into contention, especially in the daunting NL West. So if the fresh-faced Padres really are heading south — unlike the Chargers, who pointed their compass north — the ride figures to be bumpy. Still, baseball can be fun even if the score might not confirm it. I’m focusing on Jankowski, Margot and Myers to keep my summer baseball candle flickering. Jankowski, who hit .245 last year while swiping 30 bags, has shifted from center field to left. Margot is roaming the great expanse in center, where his quicks are put to the test. Between them, not many fly balls are expected to return to the pitcher with grass stains. “Travis and Manny have a ton of athleticism,’’ Green stressed. “There are a ton of reasons to believe in those guys.’’ The Padres always keep the faith but they didn’t retain All-Star closTURN TO PARIS ON 23

Record-setting Carlsbad race completes 32nd annual event By Adam Sullivan

CARLSBAD — Racers and running enthusiasts from all over the world converged on Carlsbad over the weekend to participate in the annual Carlsbad 5000. The Carlsbad 5000 is a 3.1-mile (5,000 meter)

race that’s part of the San Diego-based Competitor Group’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon series. The race begins at the corner of Jefferson and Grand, and ends at Carlsbad Village Drive and State Street. More than 9,000 runners laced up to beat their best

times, enjoy the newly arrived springtime weather, and win some cash. First place and $3,500 went to Dejen Gebremeskel, who came all the way from Ethiopia to attend. The 27-year-old Gebremeskel won with a time of 13:27.

The women’s elite race was dominated by Kenya’s Violah Lagat, who finished with a time of 15:35. Lagat also was awarded $3,500. The total prize purse for the event was $17,400. For the non-runners, TURN TO RACE ON 23

Riders show their horsemanship skills By Tony Cagala

SAN MARCOS — Riders showed their horsemanship skills last weekend — at stake were points — points that could send them on to the Pinto World Championships later this year. Competing in categories based on age and skill levels, what makes the 6th annual Lou White Memorial Jubilee unique, according to Traci Holoubek,

president of Southwest Pinto organization, is that the show is open to all breeds of horses — the only caveat — the horse must be a registered Pinto. The Pinto horse, while it can be one of many breed types, must have certain markings and coloring to make it so. There are breeds of horses such as Quarter horses, Paint horses, Ara-

bian horses, and Thoroughbred horses, explained Holoubek. “There’s all different breeds of horses,” she said, adding that Pinto is a color registry, basically. “If you had an Arabian horse and it had Pinto markings, then it can be a

registered Pinto. It’s not actually just a breed registry, it’s a color registry.” On Sunday, the Southwest Pinto organization, a Lakeside-based charter of the national Pinto Horse Association, held the JubiTURN TO HORSES ON 23

courage long-term improvements. A simpler life will help you avert additional stress and personal aggravation. Do what’s best for yourself.

SOUP TO NUTS by Rick Stromoski

By Eugenia Last FRIDAY, APRIL 14, 2017

FRANK & ERNEST by Bob Thaves

Your excitement and enthusiasm will help you conquer whatever you set out to do, as long as you don’t let your emotions take charge. A struggle of willpower will dominate your year. Don’t let pessimism win when you have so much to offer and gain. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Show passion in all that you do, but be clear about your decisions before you make a move. Impulse will be the culprit that will set you back.

THE BORN LOSER by Art & Chip Sansom

Horn touts North County’s financial footing, public safety efforts By Aaron Burgin

SAN MARCOS — With four members of the Board of Supervisors set to be termed out of office by 2020, Dist. 5 Supervisor Bill Horn urged potential candidates for those spots to follow in his and his colleagues’ fiscally conservative footsteps during his annual State of North County Address. “I want to see the next generation of supervisors, they need have that same commitment,” said Horn, who will leave office due to term limits in 2018. “When you vote for them, make sure you examine them on this issue, because if they drain the treasury, you’re not going to be able to do a lot of the things we have done.” Horn’s half-hour address highlighted a number of the county’s accomplishments in the North County region and countywide. He also acknowledged the efforts of the county’s public safety and first-responder entities. “They put their lives on the line,” Horn said of fire agencies. One of the main accomplishments, Horn said, is the county maintaining its AAA credit and bond rating for the 16th and 10th consecutive year, respectively. “Everything we do depends on these conservative practices that are working,” Horn said. “It’s not always popular, but we can’t spend money that we don’t have. Those practices, Horn said, has allowed the coun-

ty to build libraries — “I have built seven libraries in 22 years,” Horn said — fund anti-gang and other law-enforcement initiatives and adequately outfit fire agencies countywide. The county broke

ground on an $80 million crime lab last year — paid for with cash, Horn said. Horn also used the address to unveil the county’s latest project — a 14,000-square-foot library, sheriff’s substation and community park in Borrego Springs, which is slated for opening in 2018. Horn said it will be a “centerpiece in the community.” “I’ll be gone, but the libraries will be sticking around,” Horn said. Horn’s address was preceded by two law enforcement demonstrations, including one by the bomb-arson unit and K-9 unit. Recently elected Supervisor Kristin Gaspar served as the event’s emcee.

Dan Cruz of the Competitor Group explains that the Carlsbad 5000 is in its 32nd year. “It’s the quintessential Carlsbad event,” he says. “It’s grown along with the city. It’s a great spectator event that’s truly unique.” One of the unique aspects Cruz refers to is the event’s tagline: “World’s Fast-

I doubt they all just rolled over and hit the snooze button. Even if you don’t subscribe to that, I have read reports that list some pretty amazing things. And they weren’t things seen by one alcoholic hitchhiker in the middle of Montana. Entire communities have shared sighting, at different times, and without having heard of the others. That just gives me goose bumps. But even if I was a nonbeliever after those tales, I could not be after a quiet, almost offhand remark by my father one day. You truly have to have known my dad to appreciate the impact this had on me. He

He was also an Air Force fighter pilot for 25 years, flying supersonic jets high into the atmosphere. One day, when the subject of extraterrestrials came up, he calmly said, “Well, we did see some things up there that flew faster, higher and outmaneuvered anything we have.” I was astounded. He didn’t go on about it. He simply stated that on more than one occasion, he and his fellow pilots had seen things fly around them they could not explain.
