Vigilance Country club ignored sexual harassment, suit claims urged even Fairbanks Ranch manager accused after arrests of misconduct

By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — Although arrests were made in June for a string of widespread burglaries in North County, Rancho Santa Fe Patrol Chief Matt Wellhouser cautioned residents to stay on high alert. Wellhouser spoke at the Rancho Santa Fe Association’s monthly board meeting on Aug. 9. According to an Aug. 1 news release from the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department, alleged suspects and Inglewood residents Daron Davon Turner, 38 and his half-brother, Daren Tyrone Turner, 25, were arrested on June 6 for a residential burglary in Poway. Alleged suspect Daron Turner is facing a total of 10 burglary felony counts while his brother Daren Turner is facing five counts. Wellhouser explained that a subsequent investigation branched into seizing evidence which uncovered a connection into additional burglaries in the county, including four residential burglaries in Rancho Santa Fe. He also noted from the press release how other Turner family members were also allegedly involved in the crime ring. Wellhouser cited from

REGION — A public-records request shared with The Coast News revealed that the chief financial officer at San Dieguito Union High School District, who oversees a budget of about $142 million, does not have a college degree. Per the district’s personnel policy, Delores Perley does not need a bachelor’s degree for that position, but one is required to substitute teach. Perley’s salary in 2016 was about $145,000, according to Transparent California, and her benefits roughly

cost an additional $26,500. Board member John Salazar wrote in a statement, “I am surprised that the Chief Financial Officer of our district is not required to have a college degree. The enormous responsibilities of the position and the extremely generous compensation it pays should require a formal education with a degree in accounting. “I believe the public would look at this as cronyism.

RANCHO SANTA FE — A 13-year-old Carlsbad resident has figured out a way to help people in Rancho Santa Fe properly retire their American flags. Andrew Presa of Troop 766 has a connection to the Ranch — his father, Neal Presa, is the associate pastor at The Village Church. Andrew has been a Scout for nine years and shared it took him about six months to complete his project, which is centered on flag retiring etiquette. “I came up with this idea because I wanted a project that would honor not only the people in my church and my community but people in my fam-

Locations of the collection boxes in the Ranch are at The Village Church, the post office and the Rancho Santa Fe Association. “The Association is happy to host the retirement flag box as a patriotic service to our members and in support of one of our local Scouts,” Rancho Santa Fe Association Manager Christy Whalen said. In tandem, Andrew created a manual for his troop, so they could annually honor the people in their

Schools CFO lacks degree — SDUHSD doesn’t require it By Carey Blakely

RANCHO SANTA FE — An upscale Rancho Santa Fe country club violated federal law by failing to prevent and redress ongoing sexual harassment of female workers by the club's general manager, according to a lawsuit filed Aug. 9 by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The lawsuit, which was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California, was brought forth by Sidney Scott and other female employees of the Fairbanks Ranch Country Club, according to court documents. Scott, Megan Fogelstrom and Mary Charlebois all accused Shant Karian, a manager at the Fairbanks Country Club, of unwanted sexual advances, groping and other unwanted sexual contact. They alleged that women who acquiesced to his demands were given better hours and pay than women who refused. Scott, according to the lawsuit, alleged that Karian subjected her to "unwanted sexual contact," including touching, kicking, and firmly grabbing her buttocks. It also included Karian attempting to grope her, touch her breasts and kiss her. Karian also grabbed Charging

Close encounter with Devils Tower hit the road e’louise ondash

New ‘wayfinding’ signs proposed for downtown By Aaron Burgin

ENCINITAS — Motorists, pedestrians and cyclists could find their way around downtown Encinitas a little easier if the City Council approves a series of new “wayfinding” signs and monuments proposed by the Encinitas 101 MainStreet Association. The City Council is considering approving the monument and directional sign network at its Aug. 15 City Council meeting. The freshly designed signs and monuments would guide visitors to destinations such as the beach, parking lots, City Hall and the library; landmarks such as the Boat Houses; preferred bike routes and the downtown business district. Most prominent among the new signs would be three so-called “monument signs,” located at the northern and southern edge of downtown at Coast Highway 101 and Encinitas Boulevard and the Santa Fe Pedestrian undercrossing, respectively, and one at the corner of Vulcan Avenue and Encinitas Avenue, the vehicular gateway to downtown. The sleek design includes an option of either a sheet rock or cobblestone base and a gold lotus akin to the one atop the Self Realization Fellowship would sit atop the three monument signs. Encinitas 101, which represents downtown’s merchants and businesses and promotes the city’s core, created the new monuments as part of a $15,000 grant it received in October 2017 from the San Diego TURN TO SIGNS ON 13

New sheriff’s captain on job in North County REGION — The new sheriff’s captain assigned to North County wants to meet residents and to learn about local law enforcement issues. Herbert M. Taft was set to take over as captain of the North Coastal Sheriff’s Station this week. In that role, he will serve as the de facto chief of police for Del Mar, Encinitas, Solana Beach and Rancho Santa Fe. “I want to get out there as quickly as possible to really get involved in the community,” Taft said. “I like to wear my uniform out in town so people will come up to me and if there’s an issue, to let me know.” A 19-year veteran of the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department, Taft has served as the department’s traffic coordinator. During his tenure as a sheriff’s lieutenant in Imperial Beach, he served

as that commu n it y ’s top cop. His most recent assignment was as a special assistant to Sheriff Bill Gore. Taft T a f t was raised in Oakland. He earned a bachelor’s degree in biology from UC Davis and aspired to become a doctor while working in a hospital lab. His career plans changed when he enlisted in the Navy to serve during the first Gulf War. He retired from the Navy as a lieutenant. In his newest role, Taft said he looks forward to working with local mayors, city councils and staff, meeting residents at city council meetings and helping to resolve law enforcement issues.


ative American legend has it that Devils Tower in eastern Wyoming was created when a giant bear clawed at the sides of a tree that grew larger and taller as the bear climbed. When the tree trunk was fully transformed, it stood as a mammoth stone monolith, lording over what is today the eastern Wyoming landscape. I thought about this myth as we headed west on U.S. Highway 14 toward Devils Tower National Monument. The June air was humid and rain had been falling continuously, so our first glimpse of the tower, from perhaps 10 or 12 miles out, was like looking through a gauzy veil. From that distance, the tower didn’t seem that formidable, but it certainly looked unique — an enormous rock piercing the horizon on an otherwise flat landscape. Myths aside, this unique tower began life about 50 million years ago when the center of the earth pushed forth a column of molten magma that never actually erupted through the planet’s crust. Then it took many more millions of years for the sedimentary rock around the column to erode, eventually exposing the tower. Today, Devils Tower rises 1,267 feet above the river below, and stands 867 feet above the base. Measure again in a few thousand years and the numbers will be different; scientists say that continuing erosion will uncover more of the igneous rock as time goes by. Some entries on Trip Advisor suggest that visitors pull off to the side of Highway 110, take a picture or two and move on to other things. No need to pay an entry fee to the park, they say. Do this, however, and you’ll miss feeling and understanding the full force of the events that created this natural-but-unearthly skyscraper. We paid our admission fee and headed for the Tower Trail (1.3 miles) that circumvents the 1,000-foot base of the tower. It got us as close to the big rock tower as possible without donning climbing gear. But there are 5,000-plus people a year who do put on the ropes, carabiners and belay devices and scale the huge hexagonal columns. Apparently the large number of parallel cracks in the rock make it a climber’s paradise. It was three of these climbers who provided tangible perspective on the size of Devils Tower. About halfway around the loop trail, a group had stopped to point and gaze at three tiny specks clinging to the tower’s sheer columns. They were barely visible to the

naked eye, and truth be told, I could only spot two — one red, one white — clinging to the wall about halfway up. Their presence changed the tower from one really big rock to freakily ginormous, almost beyond comprehension. By the way, the park service says that there are about 220 routes to the top and that it takes between four hours and six hours to ascend Devils Tower. However, in the 1980s, a climber name Todd Skinner accomplished the superhuman by climbing to the top in 18 minutes. Visiting Devils Tower also reminded us of a film favorite — Steven Spielberg’s 19¬¬¬¬77 film “Close Encounters of the Third Kind.” In it, Richard Dreyfuss’ character Roy Neary developed an obsession with the shape of Devils Tower — recall the mashed-potato sculpture — before he figured out what it was. Once he understood, he experienced an inexplicable draw to the tower, which became the landing zone for an immense UFO. Back on the trail, we passed piles of crumbled rock — massive boulders

that have broken away from the tower’s face. It reminded us that even nature’s seemingly permanent features are always changing and that nothing is forever. We also passed signs reminding visitors that the area is still sacred to many Native Americans, but the request for quiet went unheeded. Families with delighted (read noisy) kids, reveling in all of this outdoors, were impossible to contain. Part of the wonder of Devils Tower was watching how its shape and surrounding area changed as we followed the path around the base. The wooded areas provide homes for dozens of species of birds and it’s common to see white-tailed deer bounding through the trees. The flat grasslands have been claimed by a thriving, playful and protected prairie dog community. It was in 1906 that President Theodore Roosevelt declared Devils Tower the country’s first national monument, thus making Wyoming the home of both the first national monument and the first national park (Yellowstone). Today, there are more than 400 in the Na-

tional Park System. At day’s end, I had only one more question: What happened to the apostrophe in “Devil’s?” According to an internet search, when the 1906 proclamation was issued by Roosevelt, the apostrophe was inadvertently missing and the misspelling was never corrected.

Too hot? Escondido lake lures visitors with night fishing By Steve Horn

ESCONDIDO — With hot weather steaming in July and August in Escondido, the city’s Dixon Lake Recreation Area, situated along the northern edge of city limits, provides relief to fishing enthusiasts by opening up the space for night fishing. It’s also a venue to which people can come camp and hike, too, serving as a place for families and younger people to come with their friends. “We like it here because it’s close to home and we can come and camp here,” Shauna Olmos, a 35-year-old Escondido resident who was at Dixon Lake with her younger daughter, said. “We haven’t caught a fish yet, but if we do catch one, we will probably eat it. I’m going for whatever will bite, though it seems that catfish is what people tend to catch here.” For night fishing, Dixon Lake is best known for its stock of catfish. Jayden Macedo, a 25-year-old resident of Escondido, began going to Dixon Lake for night fishing this summer. He said after he catches the catfish, he then uses it to make a soup. Macedo also said that, beyond catfish, he has seen blue gills, bass and trout in Dixon Lake. Catfish are not in Dixon Lake by chance or biology alone. Instead, the city of Escondido purchases the fish breed in 1,000-pound doses and stocks it in Dixon Lake for anglers who come out and test their luck there. A 1,000-pound batch was stocked on Aug. 3 and another 1,000-pound batch is planned for Aug. 24, Dixon Lake Park Ranger Kathy Boyd told The Coast News via email. In total, according to the city of Escondido’s website, the lake is

stocked a total of five times between the dates of July 12 and Aug. 24. “Night fishing is a unique opportunity for anglers to catch those fish until 11:45 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays,” Boyd said. “It’s been a tranquil atmosphere for anglers. The boats sell out pretty early and the piers are popular. Mosquitoes have not been a problem here.” Boyd was quick to point out that alcohol, smoking and gas-powered lanterns have no place at Dixon Lake and are prohibited. She recommended that those who come

should bring battery-powered flashlights and that, while dogs are welcome there, they must be kept 50 feet away from the shoreline. Boyd also said that those who fish at Dixon Lake do not need a fishing license, but must pay a fishing fee of $7 if over the age of 16, $5 for seniors and children aged 8 to 15 and free for children under 8 whose parents or guardians who have a fishing permit. According to a General Information one-pager, Dixon Lake sits at an elevation of 1,045 feet, has a holding capacity of 3,200 acre feet,

a surface area of 76 acres and sits at 80 feet deep at its deepest portion. Further, the sheet explains, “more than 90 percent of Dixon Lake’s water comes from the Colorado River and northern California.” The biggest fish ever caught in the lake was a 28.75-pound catfish, according to the website SDFish.com. That website also says that three of the 25 biggest bass caught in recorded human history actually came from Dixon Lake, including the fifth biggest ever at 21.688 pounds.

The biggest recorded bass ever seen, too, hailed from Dixon Lake and was named “Dottie.” Though the fish was caught by an angler, it did not count under accepted fishing regulations. “Dottie,” who weighed in at 25 pounds, was featured in an ESPN.com story in 2008 called “The One That Got Away.” In total, Dixon Lake Recreation Area has 527 acres of land and 45 separate campsites. Though many people fish from the shoreline and the park’s four piers (two are open for night fishing), boat rentals are available for $35. Dixon Lake became known as such due to its namesake, Jim Dixon. Dixon was a “member of an early pioneer Escondido family, and, for many years, the Superintendent of the Escondido Mutual Water Company,” explains the Dixon Lake one-pager. “Mr. Dixon was one of the first to envision the need for a reservoir at this location.” Fishing at Dixon Lake brings people of all levels to the scene. For example, Ivy Rugh, 4, and her mother Presley Page, 28, went out fishing at Dixon Lake for the first time. For them, it was a chance to be out in nature together more than it was a pursuit of catching fish to eat. In fact, Page said, they do not even eat fish at all. “We’re not avid fishers, but this is fun to be outside and together,” Page said. “I used to come camping here when I was little and we would kind of fish and row the boats around and hang out. It’s nice. It’s really fun.” Shana Thompson contributed to this report.

Secret meetings key to state’s energy, air and water choices


The public deserves safe access to Beacon’s Beach My husband and I bought our house in Leucadia in 2002 just a few blocks from Beacon’s Beach and we both feel a strong connection to this local treasure. We enjoy the surf and the sand and the spectacular view from the parking lot and so do many of the like-minded people we have met. The public deserves safe and permanent access to Beacon’s Beach, and that’s why I supported the proposal presented last month to the Encinitas Planning Commission. Commissioners agreed to send the proposal back to the community for suggestions. When the plans return for a vote, they must include a safe and permanent connection from the parking lot to the sand. A solution must respect community character but also allow for the fragile bluff’s inevitable

retreat from the shoreline, as geological experts warn. Most importantly, a final fix must pass muster with the state authorities that own and regulate the property. Removing the parking from the landslide area and installing stairs on the south end of the lot — away from the landslide failure zone — is the only option. I support building a low-profile stairway that requires the fewest number of pilings to be driven into the bluff. Designs presented by city staff meet these important requirements. A wooden stairway, by contrast, would need twice as many pilings and significantly increase the profile of the structure — and its cost. Working as a community, we can find colors, stamping and other treatments to create a concrete stairway that reflects our character,

makes us proud and most importantly, provides for safe and permanent access. Let’s work together on a plan. After decades of studies and consultants’ reports, the concrete stairway is the only solution that has received the blessing of the Surfrider Foundation, geologists, the California Coastal Commission and California Departments of Parks and Recreation, which owns the property. I love heading out for a dawn patrol session to catch — and share — waves with people who cherish Beacon’s just like I do. Beacon’s Beach belongs to everybody. Working together, I am confident we can find a solution that provides waves and access for all. Roberta Walker Leucadia


More, tougher laws needed to fight state wildfires An open letter to California political leaders: Half of the state is in ashes, smoke or flames and all you are considering is giving the utilities a reduction in their liability? Why don’t you pass some bills doing the following: 1. Providing more security forces to stop the arsonists from attempting any fires; 2. Toughening sentencing of convicted firebugs to life in prison without any parole and the death penalty if anyone dies in the fires they caused; 3. So-called accidentally starting fires would have the same consequences so lawyers cannot get them off the hook; 4. More money into researching and combatting beetle bark infestations in forests; 5. Thinning out dead trees by scientists trained in forestry management, not by lumber companies who are just itching to get into the backcountry, create more

any of California’s vital energy, water and air quality decisions of the last few years may have been made in secret meetings involving Gov. Jerry Brown’s office and his appointed heads of key state agencies. That revelation emerges from previously withheld emails released by the California Public Utilities Commission in response to a court order obtained by a San Diego consumer attorney who has fought some of its most important rulings. The released emails cover several months in 2014, and some remain undisclosed, but there are no denials of the secret meetings from anyone in state government, and they apparently continue. There is disagreement about whether these sessions violate California’s open meetings law, designed to ensure decisions are made in full public view. The gatherings include aides to the governor and the heads of the PUC, the state Energy Commission, the state Air Resources Board, the state Water Resources Control Board and board members of the Independent System Operator, in charge of California’s electric grid. The emails also strikingly reveal that the top regulators meet frequently in private with high executives of major utilities they regulate. Meetings sometimes include division chiefs with the state agencies. The group, calling itself the Energy Principals, also meets with executives and officials of renewable energy companies like those building huge solar thermal energy plants in the state’s vast deserts. But there is no indication consumer groups or their representatives have ever

california focus thomas d. elias been included. Subject matter for meetings during the relatively short time period covered by the court order included an infamous and since-revised agreement reached in a secret 2013 meeting in Warsaw, Poland, between then-PUC President Michael Peevey and Southern California Edison Co. That deal, summarized by Peevey on a hotel napkin, assessed consumers about 70 percent of the almost $5 billion cost for closing the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station. Other topics included renewable energy issues and “peaker” electricity plants used only during power shortages. There is no evidence any decisions reached by the Energy Principals group were ever changed by any state agency involved. “Essentially, they’ve collapsed the four big energy and water agencies into a single group organized out of the governor’s office,” said Michael Aguirre, the former elected city attorney of San Diego whose demands produced the previously secret emails. “I’ve sent letters demanding they give public notice of these meetings.” Some meetings during the time period covered by the emails were held in Peevey’s house in the posh Los Angeles suburb of La Cañada Flintridge and in the home of air board chair Mary Nichols in the Los Feliz district of Los Angeles. The PUC was the only agency commenting on the meetings, with spokeswom-

an Terrie Prosper implying in an email that the Energy Principals group still meets regularly. “Discussions among the leaders of various agencies must occur … to ensure the state properly manages resources and considers the needs of California,” she said in an email. And a spokesman for Brown told a reporter that “it’s a basic function of government for agencies to work cooperatively.” Prosper insisted public notice of the meetings is not required under California’s open meeting law, the Ralph M. Brown Act. But a 2003 public analysis of the Brown Act by then-Attorney General Bill Lockyer found the law covers “standing committees of a legislative body.” Agencies like those in the Energy Principals group have long been considered legislative bodies under the Brown Act and do give advance notice of meetings. It’s difficult to see how a group of agency heads that has met regularly for years would not be called a “standing committee.” But Prosper defended the group’s secrecy by saying, “There was never a quorum of PUC members present.” “One question this brings up is how broad is the practice of secret meetings?” said Aguirre. “There is no way these meetings should be held in secret.” But they have been, and no one knows how long that’s gone on. The bottom line: Agency heads should indeed meet and coordinate their actions, but from now on, they need to do it publicly and provide plenty of advance notice, as the law seems to require.

Eden Valley, Harmony Grove projects OK’d By Aaron Burgin

REGION — The San Diego County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved two controversial housing developments in the rural communities of Eden Valley and Harmony Grove. Critics of the Valiano and Harmony Grove Village South projects said the pair of developments would irrevocably alter the character of the communities, perched south of San Marcos and west of Escondido, while exacerbating traffic and fire concerns. But supervisors on July 25 voted 4-0 to approve each development — part of a bundle of projects approved as a single amendment to the county’s general plan — which they said would help ease the region’s growing housing crisis. “I’ve accepted the fact that we have grown over the years,” District 4 Supervisor Ron Roberts said. “We are going to continue to grow, I think, because San Diego is a very attractive place. With that literally comes requirements to provide housing opportunities for people who are here and people who may come here. “We need housing and I am not going to qualify it any more than that,” Roberts said. “If we are going to approve housing projects, I want them to work.” The approval paves the way for developers to build 453 units of new housing on 111 acres with the Harmony Grove Village South project, which is billed as an extension to the 742-home Harmo-



the press release that numerous firearms were recovered and connected to another burglary in Vista. Wellhouser does not want Covenant members to let their guard down following these arrests because in his semi-annual report from January to June 2018, there were a total of 10 residential burglaries. “The bad news is that not all the burglars were caught — the other burglars are still loose,” Wellhouser said. “I still want to encourage everyone to turn on your alarm, lock your house and be vigilant. Talk to your neighbors and share information — this is the way these things get solved.” Wellhouser shared that victims of the burglaries detailed in the Aug. 1 press release will be contacted by the detectives from the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department. While there was a 37 percent decrease in residential burglaries from the semi-annual report since the one in 2017, Wellhouser said half of the robberies that occurred this year were not from forced entry. So, staying both vigilant and diligent did bear repeating. From January to June 2018, there were two commercial burglaries com-

ny Grove Village Development approved 11 years ago by the board. Integral Communities, with county approval, is going to build the 326-home Valiano project on 238 acres in Eden Valley and Harmony Grove. The two communities, generally south of San Marcos and west of Escondido, lie in a rural enclave of the county not far from Lake Poway. Residents have protested the projects on a number of fronts, including concerns about the increased density in the rural area, the lack of adequate infrastructure to support an evacuation during wildfires in a historically fire prone area, and the introduction of apartments into a landscape dominated by rural estates and single-family homes. Supporters of the project argue that these developments, along with several others in the planning pipeline, are sorely needed to help the county emerge from its housing crisis, arguing that opponents simply don’t want the housing in their backyard. Both projects received the near unanimous blessing from the Planning Commission, despite large crowds of opponents at both hearings. The same scenario played out during the seven-hour hearing on July 25. But elected officials said that staff had vetted the projects and any concerns raised by the residents, siding with the need for more housing in a region pared to four in the same time period in 2017. Wellhouser then focused on other areas of the semi-annual report, which included 2,117 calls for service with average response time for calls at 6 minutes 43 seconds. Approximately 11 percent of the calls were from alarms, he said. According to Wellhouser, traffic collisions dropped a bit. The predominant factor in accidents was excessive speed. Likewise, there were a total of 52 injury collisions, down by seven compared to 2017. However, there were a total of 38 noninjury collisions, up by five since 2017. “We are also seeing a little increase in vehicle theft in the region,” Wellhouser said. “These guys (burglars) don’t worry about boundaries — they steal things from cars so don’t leave things visible.” Wellhouser closed his presentation by sharing the department hired a new employee about a month ago with a background in law enforcement. “He’s a very experienced officer,” Wellhouser said. Anyone with information about the burglary cases related to the alleged Turner suspects is encouraged to contact San Diego Crime Stoppers at (888) 5808477.

Party from behind. Karian also sent Scott text messages requesting pictures of her “ass.” According to the lawsuit, Karian began treating Scott negatively after she refused to send the pictures, including threatening to fire her over a a minor issue and scrutinizing her work more. Fogelstrom alleges in the nine-page complaint that she was harassed by Karian and a bartender named Roman Savedra. On multiple occasions, Karian repeatedly made sexual advances, hit her buttocks, put his arm around her waist, choked her and made repeated unwanted sexual advances. Karian also made inappropriate comments of a sexual nature to Fogelstrom and other female employees in her presence, asked Fogelstrom what kind of underwear she

wore, told her to flash her breasts to customers and told male customers that Fogelstrom could give them “lap dances,” according to the complaint. According to Fogelstrom, Savedra grabbed and kissed her and attempted to kiss her on other occasions. Charlebois said that Karian told her she needed to wear a tighter blouse to work and made unwelcome comments of a sexual nature to her and other female employees. Charlebois, according to the lawsuit, felt pressured to flirt back with Karian, who did the scheduling at work. Charlebois said that her hours were cut and she received a lower rate of pay because she did not engage in a sexual relationship with Karian. The commission said in the lawsuit that the type of behavior was so prevalent that other employees felt free to engage in sexual harassment as well.

"Every employer has an obligation to prevent sexual harassment at its workplaces," said Anna Park, regional attorney of the EEOC's Los Angeles District, which also has jurisdiction over San Diego County. "Maintaining an employee manual is not enough. Training and oversight for all staff members must become how employers ensure safety and compliance in this area of the law." According to the EEOC lawsuit, Fairbanks is liable for the male employees' behavior in these incidents and should have taken action to protect the female employees. By not doing so, the company allowed a hostile work environment to exist, which led to some female employees resigning, according to the lawsuit. Christopher Green, director of the EEOC's San Diego Local Office added, "The allegations of this case are especially shocking, be-

ing that a general manager was involved. Having ultimate hiring authority does not permit leveraging that power to take from those who work for you. According to a recent news release, the agency's suit seeks compensatory — back pay and future wages with interest — and punitive damages for the complainants and class members as well as injunctive relief intended to prevent Fairbanks Ranch from engaging in future discrimination, harassment or retaliation. A spokeswoman for The Bay Club, which acquired Fairbanks Ranch Country Club in 2016, said the company was aware of the allegations and would respond in a timely manner to the claims. "TBCC (The Bay Club) is committed to a safe, harassment free work environment for everyone," said in a written statement to the Coast News.

There is something very special about the ring of those words “Senior Citizens!” These little two words imply seniority, knowledge and experience. They are all these things and more. Much more. Living fully, usefully, and with dignity. Learning, earning, striving, giving, sharing, being a human being with compassion, understanding and depth. These are qualities that are earned — and our Senior Citizens have earned them indeed! In 1988, President Ronald Reagan declared each August 21st to be Senior Citizens Day. We single out these wonderful people in a special way to pay them respect and homage. They are useful, capable, wise, helpful, and willing. Everything we each strive to be.

Giddy for garden grapes small talk jean gillette


xcuse me. I have to go wash my feet. This may be my first and last chance to stomp grapes. My spouse planted grape vines in our backyard a few years ago, and they seem to thrive. Well, the vines thrive, winding around overhangs and tree branches, but the grape output has been sparse. I didn’t care. With or without grapes, the vines looked lovely, green and really cool. The first year we had about three small bunches. The birds enjoyed them. I rather lost track after that, but there wasn’t much grape production that I was aware of. This year, spouse insisted we had lots of grapes out there. I nodded and smiled. The things he plants are always some odd cultivar that he chooses after copious research. They rarely taste good or are things I fancy or want to go to the fuss to prepare. The spiders and flotsam that end up on my table, along with any produce from our organic yard, are also off-putting.

I generally get away with ignoring the handfuls of figs; teeny, tiny artichokes; unfamiliar apples, cherimoyas and pomegranates, but I am ready to taste the grapes this year. These are even seedless. I have clearly seen too many Lucille Ball reruns, because the first thing that jumped into my head when I saw the bountiful basket, full to the brim with dark purple grapes, was that they needed stomping. The idea just made me laugh. I know how much work it is to actually make wine, so my brain didn’t go there — just the stomping part. We won’t, of course, do that, but I am toying with running them through the juicer. No spiders survive juicing. I really hope they are going to be delicious. Of course, if grapes are ripening in our yard, they are likely ripening in table-grape vineyards throughout the state. I am told the season in the San Joaquin Valley is about to kick off. Fingers crossed that our backyard bumper crop signals similar success statewide. I’d rather nosh than stomp. Jean Gillette is a freelance writer who did not ignore the tomatoes and zucchini from that same backyard garden, despite the spiders.

All aboard for preservation Encinitas, SANDAG and others work together to protect a newly discovered, century-old train artifact in Cardiff By Carey Blakely

As we press on with new endeavors, faces turned to the future, the past has a way of revealing itself in uncanny ways. In late June, a SANDAG contractor working

on the Cardiff segment of the Coastal Rail Trail was clearing vegetation when he unearthed an old cement slab, according to SANDAG Director of Land Use and Transportation Planning Charles “Muggs” Stoll. Train enthusiast and Encinitas resident Ron Dodge believes the slab comprised part of the floor of the original Cardiff train station. The station was built in 1913 and served as an active railroad stop until 1920 or 1921. Dodge had been hoping that a railroad artifact would be revealed during the double-tracking of the rail lines or the construction of the Coastal Rail Trail and had been keeping an eye out. While circumnavigating the traffic generated by the Bro-Am Beach Fest on June 30, he walked by the newly exposed concrete, arrayed in square tiles, and was convinced he knew what it was. He emailed Encinitas Councilman Tony Kranz, who reached out to SANDAG, which had also been notified by its own crew. What ensued was a flurry of emails and calls to communicate about the discovery and coordinate the plan moving forward. The Coastal Rail Trail bike and pedestrian path will now make an easterly detour around the station floor. The slab, about 30 feet long and parallel to the tracks, is located roughly 100 feet north of the intersection of Chesterfield Drive and San Elijo Avenue. Encinitas Mayor Catherine Blakespear, whose family has lived in Cardiff for more than a century, is thrilled about the artifact, which she called “a little gem.” She said, “In Southern California we’re always taking down our history. This relic gives us the oppor-

tunity to preserve a connection to who we were when, as a city, we were growing up.” In what both Blakespear and Dodge considered a remarkable act of cooperation by multiple entities (the city of Encinitas, SANDAG, Cardiff 101 Main Street and the Harbaugh Foundation), consensus was quickly reached to both move the trail eastward and leave the floor intact in its original location. The mayor said the artifact’s “power is in its location,” noting that the floor’s intrigue would be lost if it were moved. It’s not clear what the exact plan for memorializing the site will be, but there’s been talk of an interpretive panel and postand-cable fencing. While the proposed idea of people standing on the old station floor and imagining being inside the depot sounds romantic, it could be impractical. The tiles appear thin and subject to fracturing, according to multiple sources. The hope is that people walking or biking along the trail will stop to reflect on those who traveled to and from the area by train a century ago. Passengers disembarking in Cardiff would have seen the wild bluffs and mighty Pacific on one side and a practically empty town on the other. In the early 1900s, the Mercantile Building, which housed a hotel, grocery store and post office, was one of the only structures in Cardiff. It still remains and is the current home of the Patagonia store. While the Cardiff station had a short life, it’s thought that it stood in its original location until 1943, according to Dodge. But was the station destroyed or moved? Blakespear said a Leu-

cadia resident sent her an email stating that the former station was transported to a bluff overlooking Moonlight Beach and that his friends live there, but when Blakespear responded enthusiastically with a request for more details, she never heard back. Thus, the mystery lives on. The train tracks running through Cardiff were part of a line incorporated in 1880 as the California Southern Railroad. Its first train traveled from National City to Oceanside in 1881. Construction of the rail line continued rapidly in a northeastern direction to places like Fallbrook, Temecula, San Bernardino and Barstow, where the last track was laid on Nov. 9, 1885, forming the western link of a transcontinental railroad connection to Chicago. Dodge is amazed by how quickly the rail line was built, noting how “men moved mountains by hand” in those days, which he referred to as a “freewheeling time in our history.” Now that over a century has passed since America “ran out of frontier and hit the beach on the other shore,” as Dodge put it, trains continue to be vital. They are, for example, one solution to the clogged freeways becoming emblematic of life in Southern California in this century. Besides, as Dodge shared about traveling by train, “It’s a whole lot easier watching the world go by ... and then arriving refreshed than it is to get stuck in traffic and frazzled.” While the details are still unknown, the city plans to continue working with Cardiff 101 and other interested parties to care for and preserve this newly discovered link to the past.

Laver and Duensing shine for sporting youngsters sports talk jay paris


od Laver is being saluted at the Taste at the Cove gala but maybe it should be the other way around. “I am honored to help people in the community,” said Laver, the Australian tennis icon and a longtime Carlsbad resident. Laver’s amazing career including winning the four majors — Australian, French, U.S. Opens and Wimbledon — in the same year to collect the Grand Slam. He was the first man to do it in 1962, and man, he did it again in 1969. All these years later, no man has done it since. But all those successful match points came with a cost. Laver, 80, later had two hips and a knee replaced, which if understanding Aussie humor, means he’s another operation shy of his third Grand Slam. It’s no joke what the San Diego Sports Medicine Foundation does, the benefactor of the Taste at the


community and their church for their service and could retire flags every year. On Aug. 26, Andrew is leading a flag dedication ceremony at The Village Church at noon for all community members. “We will be retiring the flags that were brought in by the community,” he said, adding his fellow Scouts brainstormed some ceremony ideas. Andrew said the ceremony will be a full program. A total of 13 Scouts, representing the 13 stripes on the American flag, will say a few words about each stripe. “We will be retiring one giant flag which represents all of the smaller flags,” he said. The ashes of this flag



my finances and I would think it would be prudent for the District to do the same.” The chief financial officer operates under the general direction of the associate superintendent of business services and assists the associate superintendent “in the overall development, planning, oversight and implementation of the District’s fiscal operations,” according to a district job description. Job candidates can demonstrate work experience in lieu of holding a college degree.

Cove held in La Jolla on Aug. 29. While SDSMF doctors have healed countless professional athletes, it’s what it does for the area’s youth that piqued Laver’s interest. The SDSMF was founded in 2002 and has graciously performed more than 100 surgeries, costing more than $2 million, for

youngsters whose finances are tight. It has conducted north of 10,000 free physicals for prep players. It has placed 13 athletic trainers in high schools. When Laver heard all that, he grinned. When Laver learned he was sharing the marquee with another sports star, his grin widened.

will go into a commemorative and then be placed in the Prayer Garden at The Village Church. Andrew envisioned that the collection boxes would mirror a parcel drop box. The collection boxes, which are about 3 feet tall, are constructed from plywood. Andrew admitted he went through five revisions until he developed the final product. He also said he is thankful for the support he received at the church, including the $500 donation that went to this Eagle Scout project. To date, Andrew has retrieved more than 30 American flags from the collection boxes, which he’s thrilled about since he can help retire these flags with both respect and dignity. Neal Presa explained

how his son’s project made sense for a variety of reasons. While they had many family members who served in the military, Presa said The Village Church is very committed to supporting military veterans. “We launched a veterans’ initiative to address homelessness among the veteran community here in North County,” he said. “We love our country, we are supportive of our country, and so it made sense for Andrew to do something like this.” Presa went on to say the Scout program enables youth members to make a powerful contribution to both their community and nation. “Here’s an example how one project from one young man will impact the country for many, many years,” he said.

On EDJOIN, a popular education job-posting site, position descriptions in California for a chief financial officer typically either required a master’s degree or stated that one was preferred. For example, in June, Sweetwater Union High School District posted a job opening that required a master’s and “six years of progressively responsible senior management fiscal experience” for its chief financial officer. The salary range was given as $187,452 to $213,160. A similar position at Total Education Solutions – L.A. required a bachelor’s, preferred a master’s

and offered up to $150,000. The one posting that, similarly to San Dieguito, did not require a bachelor’s degree paid significantly less money. The salary range for Di Giorgio School District in Arvin, a small city in Kern County, offered to compensate its chief business officer between $39,708 to $60,948 annually, depending on experience. San Dieguito Union High School District projects deficit spending across the next three school years, with a combined reserve whittling down to the danger zone and state-mandated minimum of 3 percent by 2020-2021.

Larry Duensing, who recently retired as Carlsbad High’s athletic trainer, will also draw the Taste at the Cove spotlight. The humble Laver is the event’s Community Legend, an award that is bestowed on a Hall of Fame caliber player and person. “He’s the Michael Jordan of his sport,” said Dr.

David Chao, the grand master behind the 17th annual shindig. “And he always looks to contribute to the community.” Duensing, who also worked with the Padres, spent 20 years making sure the Carlsbad Lancers were looked after. He’s taking a bow as the Medical Champion honoree. “Athletic training is not as much a job as it is a calling,” Duensing said. “Working with youth and high school athletes has been especially rewarding because you are helping kids learn how to take care of their bodies so they can continue to play sports.” Laver knows about being banged-up and if he can help someone get right, the lefty is at-the-ready. “Unfortunately playing sports can cause some injuries and to some families those injuries can cause a burden on them,” Laver said. “Thanks to SDSMF, the kids are getting the necessary medical attention that they need before and during sports without having to put a burden financially on their family.” But that top-shelf care comes with a cost and that’s where the Taste at the Cove comes in. Dinner, drinks, entertainment and a silent and live auction are on the

schedule and good luck finding a more beautiful setting than the La Jolla Cove. All the best, too, in finding two more deserving men than Laver and Duensing. They assist our youth fill all those idle hours through athletics by helping getting them fit. “Playing sports is associated with positive outcomes for youth, and a serious injury can put that opportunity in jeopardy,” Duensing said. “Receiving appropriate care not only aids in rehabilitation but also the return to play.” If you’re boomeranging to the Taste at the Cove, you know the fun to be had. If you’re making your debut, get ready to swap tales with Laver and Duensing, while paying forward in helping youngsters long on athletic dreams but short on cash. Laver is busy preparing for next month’s Laver Cup in Chicago but he made time for youngsters keen on athletics. “I believe that kids being involved in sports helps them to keep a healthy body, a healthy mind,” Laver said. “It can help them on a good path for the rest of their life.” Contact Jay Paris at jparis8@aol.com.

Farm to Table Dinner, winery trip next month By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — The Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club will be celebrating the start of Rancho Days with its annual Farm to Table Dinner on Sept. 29 at the Garden Club. Proceeds from the dinner will go to benefit the San Pasqual Academy. “It’s just a fun event for the community to get together,” Executive Director Shelly Hart of the Garden Club said. In addition to the dinner, guests can peruse market vendors such as CHERVONA Vodka, which will shake up mini martinis, taste beer by Midnight Jack Brewing, taste olive oil and more. “It’s a fun market and goes with our farm-to-table theme,” she said. Root Cellar Catering will create a signature menu for a unique family-style dining experience. The annual dinner will be an outdoor venue at the Garden’s Club newly renovated Secret Garden. Guitarists from Barry Farrar Music will entertain guests throughout the evening. “We’re going to have long tables underneath the hanging lights at the Secret Garden,” said Hart, adding the garden has been newly landscaped and is the ideal venue. According to Hart, the Garden Club has had a long history of hosting a harvest dinner in the fall. “For the past two years we have held it at the Osuna Ranch, but we are bringing it back to its roots at the Garden Club to kick off Rancho Days,” Hart said. “Our club members are thrilled that the event is coming back to the club because of the longstanding harvest dinner tradition. It’s going to be a fantastic evening.” Sponsors for the evening are Epic Events, Midnight Jack Brewing, and CHERVONA Vodka. While the 2018 annual Farm to Table Harvest Dinner is something club members are looking forward to, Hart said, they are also

excited about an upcoming winery tour on Sept. 18 to South Coast Winery in Temecula. “I had several members say they wanted to do a winery tour. So, rather than booking a winery tasting van, I was able to secure a behind-the-scenes tour at South Coast Winery which is one of the most prestigious wineries in Temecula,” said Hart, adding how she is also booking a van or bus to Temecula, so no one needs to drive. Hart said the wine tour will take guests through the vineyards, as well as offer a glimpse into how wine is made from the time it's harvested, the process to making it to the crush pad and into a wine barrel. From there, everyone will be escorted to a wine cellar with they will partake in food and wine pairings. “The tour is geared to help people enhance their knowledge of wine as well as a great wine experience,” Hart said. Seating is limited for both Garden Club events. Tickets for 2018 annual Farm to Table Harvest Dinner on Sept. 29 are $150 per person. The field trip to South Coast Winery on Sept. 10 is costs $135 for Garden Club members and $145 for guests.

A rts &Entertainment Fans can’t help falling in love with Graceband By Bianca Kaplanek

SOLANA BEACH — When Graceband takes the stage at Belly Up on Aug. 18, it will be the eighth performance at the Solana Beach venue in three years. But for Carlsbad resident Chris Maddox, who fronts the 12-piece Elvis tribute ensemble, the feeling never gets old. “The Belly Up has been, and remains eight shows later, the dream place to play,” he said. “Part of it is because I grew up going to shows there, so I personally lived that. But also, it’s a super cool venue. “The Rolling Stones have played there,” he added. “Paul McCartney’s played there. And the Foo Fighters have played there. How cool. It’s still a little surreal to me to see our poster on the wall. It still blows my mind.” Graceband was created by a group of high school buddies from the South Bay area of Los Angeles. After their first gig in a neighborhood bowling alley, the band continued to play local clubs throughout high school and college, but broke up in 1998 after graduating to pursue other careers. Maddox, a director of sales, eventually moved to Carlsbad, got married and had a son. In 2013 he reached out to original guitarist Ryan Roelen, whom he met in preschool, and told him he wouldn’t object to resurrecting the band.

Within two weeks, Graceband was back together. In addition to the original four, which also includes drummer George Steele and bass player Danny Behringer, Graceband features The Horns o’ Plenty — John Saffery, Jugo Vazquez, Robert Mukai and Jimmie Williams — guitarists Scott May and Eric Durham and backup singers Kate Walker and Caroline McLean, also known as The Gracenotes. Together they practice three hours one night a week in Orange County — a midway point for most members — and perform about 20 shows a year. “We turn down work because of work,” he said. “This is our golf. It takes time away from the family. It costs you money. But it’s a passion. Fortunately, that’s resonated with enough people that we can keep doing it.” Maddox said he always starts the show by entering from the back of the room, “to connect with the crowd,” with high-fives, kisses and hugs. He then opens with “C.C. Rider,” the first song Elvis sang at all his concerts. After a few high-energy classics, it’s time for the “walker,” a slow number that allows him to go into the crowd, pass out scarves — about 20 per show — and steal a few kisses. But in light of the #MeToo movement, Maddox said he now offers a respectful disclaimer. “I fully respect your personal

space, but Elvis was a hugger.” Beyond those few constants, every Graceband show is a little different, with new songs, dance moves and jokes. In addition to the Belly Up, Graceband performs in Orange County, at Temecula wineries, at private parties and golf clubs and, for the fourth time this year, the San Diego County Fair. He said there are a few reasons the band has been successful. “We have 100 percent market share of a niche idea,” Maddox said. “We are the best and only regular-playing 12-piece Elvis band. … For that sound and that kind of music, we’re it.” Plus, the music is fun. “You can’t help but dance,” he said. “Everybody knows all the words. We can play a two-hour set and everyone will know the songs,

even if you didn’t know you knew them. “We truly love the source material,” Maddox added. “We’re trying to ooze joy and throw fun out at the audience. We don’t take ourselves too seriously.” Most importantly, he credits the fans, some of whom come back wearing the scarves they received, but with added sequins. “It really is all about people,” he said. “When they leave the show, they don’t just say it sounded great. They say they had a great experience. That means everything.” Among his favorite compliments are when people say they aren’t Elvis fans but they like Graceband or they are Elvis fans and didn’t expect to like Graceband but do. As for his family, Maddox said

his son “was a little freaked out at first,” embraces it now and has no desire to fill in when dad can no longer do Pilates in a 20-pound jumpsuit. When it comes to affectionate Elvis, Maddox’s wife has two conditions. “I can only kiss the same girl once and it has to be while I’m wearing the costume,” he said. And what would the King think? “We’re the Elvis tribute that I think Elvis would like,” Maddox said. “I think if he came back on a magic spaceship he would like Graceband and the spirit of what we’re doing.” Graceband opens for Mustache Harbor on Aug. 18. The show begins at 9 p.m. Visit bellyup.com/ for more information and tickets.

approved the proposal on June 20. If the City Council approves it, it would accept the signs and monuments as a donation, but would have to determine how to pay for future sign replacement and maintenance. “E101 is thrilled that our Wayfinding signs and monument designs are going to City Council for approval this month,” said Irene Pyun, the group’s executive director. “As an organization that promotes downtown businesses, it is important to have effective signage that helps visitors navigate the town.” Pyun said the signs have a tangible financial benefit to the city. “Wayfinding signs improve the local economy by encouraging exploration of

an urban area while providing useful information to make the urban experience more enjoyable,” Pyun said. “We are excited to put a modern twist on the designs to reflect our unique beach town.”


County Neighborhood Reinvestment Program. According to a city staff report, residents have frequently complained to Encinitas 101 about the lack of a cohesive directional sign network in downtown. “The current signs, including parking and historical signs, are sparse and not comprehensive,” the city staff report states. The group’s board of directors in January 2018 established a Wayfinding Committee — which included board members and interested members of the public — that coordinated the design efforts and locations of the various signs.

MiraCosta preps students for careers in sustainable agriculture OCEANSIDE— The Horticulture Program at MiraCosta college is growing by leaps and bounds. As it continues to expand to match the needs of a budding industry, it recently began offering a Sustainable Agriculture Degree and Certificate program, and the students and faculty alike are enthusiastic. “When I came on board in 2004, the Horticulture Program was already well established,” Claire Ehrlinger, lead horticulture instructor, said. “In 2007 we built a more permanent building on 10 acres of the campus. It serves as a great hub for the classes. Outside, we have greenhouses, a sales nursery, vineyard, subtropical fruit orchard, market garden, and landscape display areas.” One of the program’s newest additions is the Sustainable Agriculture Certificate. “The Sustainable Agriculture Certificate can be earned in about 30 units,” Ehrlinger said. “We have some students who just want to earn the certificate

and others who combine it with general education classes to earn an associate’s degree. We also have students with bachelor’s and master’s degrees who have decided they want to make a career change. There is a lot of diversity within the program.” Courses range from Horticulture Laws and Regulations to Integrated Pest Management, Organic Crop Production: Cool Season, Organic Crop Production: Warm Season, and Organic Crop Production: Specialty Crops.

The Sustainable Agriculture certificate prepares students for employment in sustainable or organic agriculture and for the operation of a sustainable farm and/or production of organic ornamental or food crops. Upon completion of this program, students will be able to develop a comprehensive plan for sustainable agriculture production on a given site, including best practices, farm layout, ecological evaluation and community viability. “It really depends on the goals of the student,” Ehrlinger

said. “A lot of students want to start their own operations growing or marketing crops. Or, on a larger scale, they might want to develop a farm for a restaurant or corporation. Many businesses are establishing their own edible gardens and need a farmer. A lot of new housing developments are adding agrihoods. Many school systems are working on agriculture programs aiming to grow enough food to supply their own cafeteria. The options are there.” In addition to their own on-campus garden, the Sustainable Agriculture program has partnered with Community Roots Farm in Oceanside and Coastal Roots Farm in Encinitas for class experiences. Some of our students are currently working with Cyclops Farm in Oceanside, Wonderland Farm in Vista and future plans are to partner with the Encinitas Union School District Farm Lab and other local growers. San Diego County is a hotbed for small farms, making MiraCosta’s programs espe-

cially relevant. Farms within the county yield more than $1.77 billion in crops annually. According to the San Diego County Farm Bureau, most farms are small family enterprises, 68 percent of which are nine or fewer acres. A MiraCosta College labor analysis found that onetenth of San Diego County’s 4,200 square miles is devoted to agriculture and is home to the largest number of certified organic farms of any county in the United States. Due to the explosive growth, Ehrlinger said employers in this area of agriculture are in need of employees. “There is a significant shortage of employees educated in sustainable principles and practices,” Ehrlinger said. MiraCosta’s Horticulture Department surveyed regional employers between May 2015 and November 2016 in the sustainable agriculture sector and found that nearly 60 percent of those surveyed said they were likely or very likely to hire be-

tween one and six new employees over the next six years, and up to 18 new employees over the next 10 years. In addition to the obvious benefits of holding a certificate in Sustainable Agriculture, the program offers a unique, hands-on and enjoyable experience. “The students are really thrilled with this program,” Ehrlinger said. “It gives them a chance to get out of the classroom and get their hands in the soil and see the fruits of their labor. We have been able to produce enough food to bring to our school’s farmers market and food bank, which helps students needing food. We are in talks with the college cafeteria to be able to grow food for them and take their green waste and compost it. It is such a great experience for the students.” To learn more about the Sustainable Certificate Program and others in the Horticulture Department, visit www.miracosta.edu/hort or email Claire Ehrlinger cehrlinger@miracosta.edu.

Local doctor helps patients reverse symptoms of Alzheimer’s ENCINITAS — “A diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease or dementia can leave families feeling helpless,” Dr. Heather Sandison said. “Historically, the prognosis has not been terrible and most people don’t improve. It is life altering for both patients and their caregivers.” However, Dr. Sandison and the team at North County Natural Medicine are utilizing a groundbreaking program to help patients and their loved ones fight back against cognitive decline. It all begins with the cutting-edge work of Dr. Dale Bredesen, author of “The End of Alzheimer’s.” The book is the first to discuss both prevention of and reversal of cognitive decline. Dr. Sandison studied under Dr. Bredesen, and has dedicated a portion of her practice to helping families get back what Alzheimer’s and like diseases have taken from them. “Patients in their 50s and 60s are losing decades of their lives that they won’t enjoy,”

Sandison said. “If they can get that back, the whole world can change. If Baby Boomers can engage with their families and contribute to their communities for decades longer, everything is different.” The basis for the work Sandison and her team do at North County Natural Medicine is simple. “We help people become their healthiest so they can show up for their lives and hopefully, help all of us solve the world’s problems,” Sandison said. This involves neurocognitive optimization, studying how all components of one’s life effects their brain. “Nutrients, toxins, blood flow, genetics, posture, stress levels — all of these play a part in your cognitive function,” she said. Dr. Sandison’s work with patients experiencing cognitive decline involves taking all of this information and more, and figuring out not just the “what” of a patient’s condition, but also the “why.” Once she has identified that part of the puzzle, a treatment

plan can be implemented. “There are several ways that a patient can go down the path of dementia, our job is to figure out which path they took,” she said. “We take a comprehensive history from the patient and do extensive lab work to determine which factor or combination of factors led them to their cognitive decline.” Sandison points to six types of Alzheimer’s disease: glycotoxic (high sugar), high inflammation, low hormones, toxic, vascular/circulatory and traumatic. “For example,

if you’ve worked as a welder, we will look at your toxicity levels,” she said. “A female who had a full hysterectomy in her 30s, we would consider her at high risk for low hormones. Someone who eats fast food and sweets multiple times a day would be a candidate for the glycotoxic type.” Utilizing Dr. Bredesen’s philosophy, Dr. Sandison said it’s about taking a step back. “Let’s see if we can find out the ‘why,’” she said. “What led to the imbalance causing the neurons not to fire effectively? We help the body cre-

ate balance so that the things in the way can be removed. At it’s core, Alzheimer’s is the brain’s way of protecting itself. If we can remove what it’s protecting itself from, we can begin to reverse the symptoms.” Once the team can pinpoint the “why” for the patient’s cognitive decline, individualized treatment can begin. And the results have been staggering, even still for Sandison who has been doing this work for years. “The first patient we saw a drastic change in, I just started crying right there in front of them,” she said. “My patient came in with her husband with the classic signs of Alzheimer’s. Her handwriting was at a steep slant, she would start to answer my questions and forget what I asked before she could answer.” The patient had initially scored a two out of 30 on one of the tests Sandison had given her, on which 26 is considered in the normal range.

After just a month, she scored a 16 out of 30. “Her handwriting was back to normal,” she said. “She was bickering with her husband about something that had happened the night before. I wasn’t sure if I should laugh or cry, I just couldn’t believe it. My patient could engage in life in a way she hadn’t been able to a month previously.” With so much of the world in a state of uncertainty, Dr. Sandison is passionate about connecting people with their lives, families and communities. This is precisely why she chose to do this type of work. “If we can get people realizing their full creative potential and help them get the most out of their day and last few decades, they can be a part of the solution,” she said. North County Natural Medicine is located at 815 N. Vulcan Ave. in Encinitas. To learn more or to schedule a consultation, visit northcountynaturalmedicine.com or call (760) 385-8683.

New Del Mar off-leash hours to start in October rules also allow enforcement penalties for violations. Resident Eunjee Viscardi, who in the past said she was attacked by dogs and verbally assaulted by some owners, was the only person who opposed the changes. “I’m very sad (with the) ordinance you came out with,” she said. “It’s not safe. And it’s a health issue.

AUG. 17, 2018 … Somebody will get hurt. Owners cannot control running dogs.” Viscardi, who said the way the issue was handled made her “look like a villain,” also said the new rules are too vague.

Rosé: Summer in a bottle taste of wine frank mangio


t came quickly with little history of an international craze. Rosé had been confined to the Provence district of France for its rise to a major style of wine. The vines are mostly along the shore of the Mediterranean Sea. Its romantic coastline includes towns like St. Tropez, Marselle and Bandol. It was here that the concept of a blush blend came into being. Rhone varietals such as Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre were being made into zesty, refreshing Rosé and became the standard for all other Rosés around the globe. I recall bumping into Provence reps at several trade shows and thought nothing about them. Then I changed my mindset about Rosé when a leading resort hotel in La Jolla brought in the governor of Provence and the mayor of Nice, the leading resort city on the French Riviera of Provence, to present the wines with a wine and food extravaganza, the likes of which I hadn’t seen in a while.

There were seafood dishes with garlic, herbs and spices. The fish stew, Bouillabaisse, and meat strips smothered in olive oil and garlic blew me away. All the while, only Rosés were served with these Mediterranean food treasures and they were standouts. Was this a touched up white wine, or was it a blush red? I had to know more. I started tasting many Provence wines but I kept coming back to two that had the acidity of a legitimate summer-style appetizing wine, and they are Gerard Bertrand Cote des Roses 2017 from Languedoc ($17) and Miraval Cote De Provence 2017 ($21.99). Both come in lovely bottles of distinct appearance. Miraval is owned and operated by the celebrity actors Brad Pitt and Angela Jolie at a beautiful estate in Provence. Pitt has taken to making wine in a serious way and devotes most of his time at the winery, producing rich renditions of Rosé. He is collaborating with the famous Provence winemakers of the Perrin Family of fine wines in the Rhone Valley. The wine is a pretty pale color with intense aromas. The acidity is refreshing coming from 1,200 feet above sea level. Peach, citrus and raspberry keep the

flavor vibrant and crisp. Be sure to serve it at 50 degrees or chillier for the best experience. Gerard Bertrand Cote des Roses is a Cinsault hybrid Rosé from nearby Languedoc. It was spotlighted in Wine Spectator’s Savvy Shopper section at a rating of 90. This is “delicate, tangy raspberry, cherry and lemon zest, with mineral herb,” wrote Spectator. These and other big pinks are enjoying great popularity with Rosé growing by 67 percent from 2016 to 2017.

with a dry, crisp elegance found in the Mediterranean based varietal ($26). This is a winery-only product so check it out at vsattui.com. I also like the 2017 Little Black Dress with Zinfandel and Petite Sirah. Like most Rosés, it’s a vivid salmon-pink in color. Taste fresh strawberry and juicy watermelon. Go to lbdwines.com. I also like Refugio made from Syrah and also offering aromas of strawberry and watermelon. Tastes include pink grapefruit and white peach. See refugioranch. com.

Local acupuncturist heals without needles ENCINITAS - Some of the patients Dr. Qin sees had been resigned to living with their suffering. After being letdown by Western medicine alone, or being apprehensive about treatment at all, many of his patients end up turning to acupuncture as a last resort. For those afraid of needles, Dr. Qin prescribes gua sha and cupping therapies, often with miraculous results. Whether having issues with pain, injuries, migraines, skin conditions, digestive or respiratory disorders or even anxiety, stress and sleep issues, patients are turning to Dr. Qin for effective alternatives that can alleviate the pain they previously accepted as a part of their lives. Dr. Qin is a third-generation acupuncturist who has been practicing for more than 30 years. In that time, he has helped more than 25,000 patients from 3 to more than 90 years old. He has studied both Western and Chinese medicine, and finds elements of each helpful in treating his patients. His education helps him use Western medicine to diagnose his patients, and Chinese medicine, to

TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE is an increasingly popular treatment for pain relief as the nation’s opiod crisis grows out of control. Dr. Qin trained over 30 years in China before bringing his expertise to San Diego, where he currently treats patients for everything including pain, depression, anxiety and vertigo. Courtesy photo

treat them. He said while traditional doctors treat pain and infractions with medication, an acupuncturist will get to the root of the problem and treat the problem rather than the symptoms. According to Dr. Qin, energy or “qi” is the foundation for acupuncture. Chinese medicine is based on the idea that a person’s

health is directly related to the flow of energy in their body. If the movement of their qi is blocked in any way, it can result in physical or emotional pain. Once the qi flows smoothly again, the body is able to become rebalanced and re-energized and the body can heal itself. This is where the often-dreaded needles come in. Dr. Qin understands

that many patients have an aversion to needles, so he is quick to point out that the pain is minimal and the diameter of the needles is equivalent to a strand of hair. He likens the pain level to that of an ant bite. Once the source of a patient’s suffering has been determined, Dr. Qin places the thin needles in certain points throughout the body

to help the energy flow. The amount and placement of the needles is determined by the condition, as there are approximately 2,000 points in the body connected by 20 pathways or “meridians.” Each point has a different effect on the qi that passes through it. Yueling Chen, Dr. Qin’s wife and business partner, is an experienced gua sha therapist at their Encinitas practice, Acupuncture 4U. She recommends gua sha and cupping as effective alternatives for people who don’t like needles. Also known as “coining” or “scraping”, gua sha removes blood stagnation and can help with acute and chronic internal organ disorders, as well as immediate relief from pain and injury. A special massage tool is used to scrape the skin and improve circulation. Cupping refers to an ancient treatment where special cups are used to create suction on the skin, also helping with pain, inflammation, blood flow, and general well-being. “We help people get rid of pain every day with gua sha,” explained Yueling, “and we offer new patients gua sha and cupping for free at their first acupunc-

ture appointment.” Yueling is a former Olympian who earned a gold medal in the 1992 Olympics for speed walking. The years of intense training had taken a toll on her and her back pain forced her to retire from the sport. She met her future husband when she moved to the United States, and he convinced her to try acupuncture. She said he told her she wouldn’t regret it, and he was right. Her treatment was so successful she competed in the 2000 Olympics in Sydney. Today, the mother of two works with her husband and is grateful to support him in helping more people relieve their pain and increase their quality of life. If you’re skeptical about acupuncture or unsure if it can help you, Dr. Qin invites anyone suffering from physical or emotional pain to come visit him for a consultation and evaluation at no charge. Mention this article and also receive 30% off a package of 10 treatments. Acupuncture 4U is located at 285 N. El Camino Real, Suite 205 in Encinitas. For more information, call (760) 230-2490.
