Breeders’ Cup returning to Del Mar in ’21

RSF School Board has new president

By Bianca Kaplanek

By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — Only a month after the sudden voluntary departure of former Rancho Santa Fe School District Superintendent David Jaffe, the school board faced another shockwave of change. Board President Todd Frank stepped down effective on Aug. 10 with three more months left until his seat was up for re-election. During a special board meeting on Aug. 17, board Vice President Tyler Seltzer explained that due to the timing of Frank’s resignation, the seat would remain empty for the remainder of his term until the Nov. 6 election. “We lost our board president, so it’s recommended that we appoint a new board president,” Seltzer said. “But before we do that, I want to thank Todd for almost eight years of long and steady service to

DEL MAR — The Breeders’ Cup World Championships, considered the pinnacle of thoroughbred racing, will return to Del Mar in 2021. The worst-kept secret in the industry was officially revealed Aug. 17 at the iconic seaside race track. “The Breeders’ Cup was an amazing time for us,” Del Mar Thoroughbred Club CEO Joe Harper said. “We had a wonderful time doing it last year. It was challenging. It was fun. … We had a ball. “It really worked better than I think most of us thought it would work, and we’re looking forward to having it again in ’21,” he added. “I think that we’re probably the victim of our own success to some degree because we’ve got to come up with a lot of new stuff and we’re working on it already.” When Del Mar first hosted the event this past November, the two-day ontrack wagering total of approximately $25,181,320 was a 21.4 percent increase over the 2016 running at Santa Anita Park. The total handle of nearly $166,077,500 was the highest since 2010 at Churchill Downs, which held two more races than Del Mar. In all, 69,970 people attended — 32,278 on Friday and 37,692 on Saturday — with daily ticket sales capped at 37,500 to avoid lines and overcrowding. Although there are only two days of racing, visitors’ average length of stay was five days, providing a $100 million economic impact to the region, Joe Terzi, president and CEO of the San Diego Tourism Authority, said. About $30 million of that was direct spending in the communities, he added. “We have very few events that deliver that much economic impact in a very short period of time,” Terzi said. “This is an amazing opportunity for San Diego, for Del Mar, for our entire region.”

OCEANSIDE — Not surprisingly, almost 100 years ago Oceanside’s beaches were considered some of the most beautiful in all Southern California just as they are today. In the early 1920s — and perhaps even before — several silent screen stars were known to frolic along Oceanside’s shores and get away from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles. Among them was famous Golden Age of Hollywood couple

Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks Jr. Pickford, known as America’s Sweetheart, and Fairbanks of many swashbuckling films such as “Robin Hood,” had strong ties to Oceanside. They founded what they dubbed “The End of the World Camp,” a location that remains a mystery. “They vacationed in Oceanside quite a bit back in the day,” according to Oceanside Historical Society President Kristi TURN TO BEACH GETAWAY ON 5

the district.” He went on to say that Frank would be missed. Board member Scott Kahn said he appreciated how Seltzer stepped in as vice president. “I just think both on merit but also for the sake of consistency I’d like to make a motion to appoint you (Seltzer) as president of the board,” Kahn said. Board clerk Sarah Neal said she was also supportive of Seltzer as president since he had district experience. “This certainly is not the time for a rookie,” she said. “My one priority right now and going into the future is that we are very transparent and proactive with our communication from the board to the community.” Neal made a second motion and Seltzer was voted in.

Leadership changes coming to San Dieguito school board By Carey Blakely

REGION — Three of the five board seats at San Dieguito Union High School District are up for election this November, which means major leadership changes could be on their way. Adding to the mix and momentum is the search for a new permanent superintendent, with the expectation that one will be hired in October. Incumbent board trustees John Salazar and Amy Herman have opted not to run for re-election, while Maureen “Mo” Muir has tossed her hat back in the

ring. In a statement emailed to The Coast News, the two-term Salazar, who often votes against the board majority, explained that it’s time to give someone else a shot. He advocates for turnover, “fresh ideas” and term limits — which the district does not impose — and hopes at least one parent of a district student will get elected. Salazar wrote, “… I have tried to fight for our students and taxpayers, but the Teachers Union TURN TO SAN DIEGUITO ON 14

Pup Olympics fetch funds for transporting adoptable animals By Kelli Kyle

RANCHO SANTA FE — Dozens of bystanders and their four-legged friends gathered in front of a tri-level wooden podium on the back patio of a beautiful Rancho Santa Fe home, ea-

Top jockey begins long road to recovery after fall from horse By Aaron Burgin

ENCINITAS — Triple Crown winning jockey Victor Espinoza has had a career that has some exhilarating highs — riding American Pharaoh to the first Triple Crown since 1978 in 2015 — to some painful lows — a riding slump in the mid 2000s that made him re-evaluate his career. Nothing, however, was worse than opening his eyes after falling from a horse July 23 at the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club and not being able to move his arms and legs. “It was the worst thing that has ever happened to me,” said Espinoza on Aug 22, nearly a month after the tragic training incident in which the horse he was riding, Bobby Abu Dhabi, went into cardiac arrest, fell and died with Espinoza on top. “When you die, you don’t feel anything. When I woke up and couldn’t feel my arms and my legs, it scared me,” Espinoza said. Espinoza suffered a spinal fracture of the C3 vertebra near the neck and a stinger to the left shoulder and arm, causing shoulder pain and numbness. Over the first few weeks, Espinoza said he fought through bouts of numbness and searing pain in his shoulder and hand as his body negotiated the trauma. Flash forward to Wednesday morning, and Espinoza is carrying a few extra pounds and facial hair sprouting from his usually

clean-shaven countenance. He leaned against a wall bending one leg and staring at Christina Dinh, a physical therapist at Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas, as she talked him through a series of exercises. Three mornings a week,

Dinh helps Espinoza’s body and nerves relearn the connections that the brief paralysis and trauma have taken from him. In one exercise, she has Espinoza kick a rubber ball while naming a fruit that starts with a different letter of the alphabet from

A to F. “Why you gotta use ‘avocado’ to start?” Espinoza says with a mischievous grin. “Because we are in California,” Dinh responds. “I thought it was because I’m Mexican,” Espinoza said, and everyone in the

room erupts in laughter. Beyond the laughter, the progress Espinoza has made is profound, Dinh and his caregiver, Rosa Aponte said. “Every day we go for a walk, and at first, he was really slow, and we couldn’t walk far,” said Aponte, who stays with Espinoza at his Del Mar home where he lives during the racing season. “Yesterday, we walked downhill and uphill, and he got me tired. “I am very surprised he’s doing things so quickly,” Aponte added. “He can dress himself, he’s walking around.” When asked if this was the fastest recovery she had seen in her career as a caregiver, Aponte nodded vigorously. “Definitely,” she said. “It’s because of his spirit. He’s so positive. And he’s so determined.” Espinoza, who describes himself as a devoutly spiritual man, said that he feels God has played a big role in his recovery. “God’s watching me,” he said. “From the minute I get out of bed, I concentrate, I am focused, and I take it one step at a time. “Every day I wake up I feel that I’ve improved a little bit, and in no time I will be 100 percent,” he said. As he recovers, however, Espinoza said he doesn’t even think about his job. This time, he said, is about the recovery. “Right now, I don’t even think about (riding),” he

said. “I focus on myself. I’ve dedicated 20 to 25 yeas to my career, and I have done everything, but when something like this happens, it is just time to myself, and now is that time.” One thing he’s enjoying during his recovery? Eating three times a day, he said. “I never do that, I only eat once a day,” he said. “I’m eating three meals a day, it’s very different. But when I come back to race, I know what I have to do to get back in shape.” Espinoza thanked the doctors, nurses and therapists who have been helping him on the road to recovery. “I have the best doctors on the planet, without them, I wouldn’t be talking to you,” Espinoza said. “And now, the therapists, they have taken their time with me because they know what I need to come back and what connections I need to be able to come back and be as good as I was before.” Espinoza also said he received inspiration from a surprise visit from world-renowned fellow jockey Gary Stevens, whose career was temporarily derailed by serious injuries, only to have strong comebacks. “He had some many injuries, broken collarbones, knees, and he would come back and start riding again and win another race and then he was a champion again,” Espinoza said. “He’s the only one I’ve looked at (for inspiration), and I look at him and say, ‘This guy is unbelievable.’

Western regional electrical grid moving perilously close to reality


Legislature must act on wildfires By Marie Waldron

This past year some of the worst wildfires in California history have killed 52 people, destroyed thousands of homes and scorched an area larger than greater Los Angeles. Surviving the Cedar (273,246 acres/ 2,820 structures), Witch (197,990 acres/ 1,650 structures), Cocos, Paradise and Lilac fires in San Diego has taught us a lot. Helping victims is our immediate priority, but we must develop policies that will prevent future mega-fires. Utilities, insurance companies, attorneys are all actively involved in the Capitol. They all have proposals that, not surprisingly, pass the costs on to others — you. The public needs to be heard as well.

California has the toughest environmental standards, but our successes in reducing greenhouse gas emissions have been wiped out by the tons of carbon dioxide spewed by these wildfires! Our fuel load is off the charts. The threat of wildfires is growing by the day as millions of dead trees are filling our forests with fuel, vegetation management is lacking, and the high cost of water and storage in Southern California has allowed previously irrigated farmlands and groves to become dry tinder. I recall during the Guejito Fire (1993), the healthy avocado grove across the street from my home helped reduce spreading. We must also encourage cooperation between federal, state and

local governments, tribes and individual landowners. A large percentage of our state is government land. Of the $4.1 billion spent through California’s capand-trade program, as of 2016-17 only 2 percent has been used for fire prevention and response activities. Compare that with billions of dollars spent fighting fires and rebuilding. The Legislature adjourns for the year at the end of August. Interest groups can continue to put their stakes in the ground, but every minute delaying a real comprehensive plan puts us all at risk. Minority Floor Leader Marie Waldron, R-Escondido, represents the 75th Assembly District in the California Legislature.


Back to school: Safety tips for families


By Madeleine Baudoin

t’s that time of year again. As another summer comes to a close in San Diego, parents and kids alike are getting their “back to school” plans together — but preparing your kids for a new school year means more than just shopping for supplies. As the Government and Public Affairs Manager for American Medical Response (AMR), I want to remind everyone to keep safety in mind as children and families get back into the school routine. Here are some “back to school” safety tips that will help your children have a safe and healthy school year. First, if your child bikes to school, talk to them about the importance of always wearing a helmet and help them plan a safe route to school. You can even practice it with them so they develop strong traffic safety skills. Children who walk to school should be familiar with what traffic signals, signs and pavement markings they will encounter, and what they mean. They should only use sidewalks, never enter streets from between obstacles like parked cars, and look both ways before crossing. For those driving around school zones, be alert — children are unpredictable, and they tend to ignore hazards and take risks. In fact, more children are injured by cars during September than any other month. When driving through a school zone, remember to obey the speed limit and stop completely at stop signs and crosswalks.

If you are a daily commuter and not a parent picking up or dropping off, try to avoid school zones altogether by choosing a different route. There’s safety in numbers, too: Children who walk to school should travel in groups if possible. All should know to avoid talking to strangers, get distance between themselves and a stranger who approaches them, and tell you or a teacher about any incident that makes them feel uncomfortable. Since more and more children are using mobile devices, it’s also important to make sure your kids practice basic safety and common sense when using theirs. Teach them to be aware of their surroundings and keep their eyes off their phones while walking, especially when crossing the street. For teens driving to school, make sure they know: no texting, games, social media, or talking on the phone while driving — by California law, drivers under 18 are prohibited from using a cellphone while they drive, even when equipped with a hands-free device. By following these simple tips, you can help your family have a much safer and healthier school year ahead. For more information on back to school safety, visit the National Safety Council at nsc.org. Madeleine Baudoin is the Government and Public Affairs Manager for American Medical Response, the largest paramedic company in San Diego, which has been in operation here for more than 60 years.

lmost daily, California’s entry into a western regional electricity grid grows nearer. As the legislative bill to move the state into a deal with coal-oriented states like Utah, Idaho and Nevada moves toward passage, the state also grows nearer to a real risk of repeating the energy crunch that produced big rate increases and weeks of brownouts here in 2000 and 2001. There’s also great irony in the strong support this bill, known as AB 813, draws from Gov. Jerry Brown, the moving force behind California’s steady progress toward getting most of its electricity from renewable sources including solar, wind, hydro-power and underground geothermal heat. For the bill carries a major risk of invalidating California’s green energy initiatives. That’s despite steady denials from the Brown-appointed Independent System Operator, the agency that has run the state’s electric grid since the energy crunch with the specific mission of preventing repeats of the market manipulation which caused that crisis. And yet … Brown and his ISO board members are backing the regional grid, claiming it might save California consumers as much as $1.5 billion a year. That’s less than $20 a year per electricity customer, not much of a benefit compared to the risks involved. One reason the bill draws strong legislative support is that simple word “regional.” Bigger is better and more efficient, goes the frequent belief, even though that does not always prove true. One problem for California in this proposal is that the new western regional board of directors

california focus thomas d. elias would be appointed largely by the electric industry. That’s like letting Enron or its modern equivalent run the grid. It’s giving the fox control of the henhouse. The potential danger to California’s green energy rules comes just as former state Senate President Kevin de León, now running for the U.S. Senate, pushes hard for a commitment to 100 percent green energy by 2050, just 32 years from now. De León claims there’s a new urgency for clean energy, spurred by the current symptoms of climate change, like frequent record-level heat and the related wave of huge wildfires. But the regional grid would allow any such rules to be overridden by the Federal Energy Regulatory commission, now led by appointees of President Trump and recently showing a great desire to keep polluting coal-fired power plants in business indefinitely. Earlier this year, for example, FERC passed a requirement that regional transmission organizations (like the western grid) counteract state-level renewable energy policies. This essentially makes FERC a strong opponent of California’s clean-power rules and the regional grid would allow it to countermand any such standards. It’s hard to see why legislators would essentially give over one of their significant powers to an agency currently determined to undermine California’s goals. Yet, backers say “Regional-

ization … would mobilize more states to engage with Trump if FERC were to do something crazy.” How likely to defy Trump are the solidly Trump-backing states of Utah and Idaho? The regional grid bill also says big utilities, like Pacific Gas & Electric, Southern California Edison and San Diego Gas & Electric, would be entitled to “just and reasonable compensation” for their past investments in transmission lines if control of the state’s grid changes. Why include that provision when the costs of those facilities are paid by consumers through their monthly bills, not by the companies themselves? If the utilities could somehow get double-paid for their power lines, that might explain why they’re not opposing regionalization. Plus, there has so far been no thorough public analysis of the full financial impact of regionalization. For sure, until such a report is made and proven reliable, this plan should go no further. But chances are it will. For the Legislature has a history of passing plans and attempting to deal with fiscal consequences later on. That’s what happened with the disastrous electric deregulation plan passed in 1998 that led to the energy crunch. Several legislative committees did the same this year in passing single-payer health proposals with no definite sources of financing. The bottom line: A regional energy grid is simply too risky for California, even if there’s some (yet unproven) possibility it might save customers a dollar or two each month.

Hunter, Sen. Anderson accused of threatening female lobbyist wife plead not guilty By City News Service

REGION — Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Alpine, and his wife, Margaret, pleaded not guilty Aug. 23 to federal charges of using more than $250,000 in campaign funds for personal expenses, including family vacations, dental bills, theater tickets and international travel for relatives. During the brief hearing in federal court in San Diego, bond was set at $15,000 for the congressman and at $10,000 for his wife. Prosecutors said they did not object to the relatively low bond amount, noting that the couple have few assets and are living “paycheck to paycheck.” The judge also noted that the pair do not present a flight risk. They are both due back in court Sept. 4. After processing, Duncan Hunter — a former Marine — walked briskly out of the federal courthouse without speaking to reporters. Protesters chanted “shame, shame” as the congressman made his way to the street. Hunter’s attorney, Gregory Vega, said the case against his client was politically motivated. “The congressman has faced more difficult battles than this, in Iraq and Afghanistan,” Vega said. “He looks forward to his day in court, and we will do everything in our power to represent him. “It (the investigation) was started by prosecutors that attended a Democratic fundraiser. They allegedly said that they were there because they were invited by the Secret Service. People in the Department of Justice have never heard of such an explanation,” Vega said. “And we believe there’s a possible cover-up as to TURN TO HUNTER ON 13

REGION — State Sen. Joel Anderson, R-Alpine, was accused by a female lobbyist of threatening to “bitch slap” her and harassing her at a bar in Sacramento last week, it was reported Aug. 20. Stephanie Roberson works for the California Nurses Association and filed a complaint with the Senate Rules Committee on Friday against Anderson, according to the Los Angeles Times. Another lobbyist who told the paper they witnessed the incident said Anderson approached Roberson at a fundraiser for another legislator at the Diplomat Steakhouse,

across from the state Capitol, and brought up the fact the CNA never endorsed him, the Times said. At one point in the conversation, the lobbyist claimed Anderson commented on Roberson’s appearance, then threatened to hit her. The witness told The Times Anderson repeatedly told Roberson “You better shut up before I bitch slap you.” Another witness confirmed that account, the paper said. Anderson was removed from the restaurant by staff without incident. California Nurses Association

Executive Director Bonnie Castillo, issued a statement calling Anderson's conduct “outrageous and unacceptable behavior” and said he should resign as a state senator and end his campaign for the state Board of Equalization. Senate Minority Leader Patricia Bates, R-Laguna Beach, declined to comment on the allegations, citing an on-going investigation, the Times reported. Anderson, whose district includes Rancho Santa Fe, could not be reached for comment, the paper said. Anderson has represented the

San Diego area in the Legislature since being elected to the Assembly in 2006, then moving to the state Senate in 2010. Since last fall, three Democratic lawmakers, Raul Bocanegra, Matt Dababneh and Tony Mendoza, all resigned amid sexual harassment allegations. Former Democratic Assemblyman Sebastian Ridley-Thomas was the subject of two sexual harassment complaints when he left office in December, citing health reasons, The Times said. — City News Service

Rancho star wins Jumper Classic RANCHO SANTA FE — Six riders finished double clean, but Rancho Santa Fe’s Keri Potter and Hannah Loly’s Ariell La Sirene were the fastest, beating second-place finishers Bjorn Ikast and Classini by a mere 0.011 of a second. Julia Nagler and her own mount, Patrol V, topped the concurrent $2,500 Blenheim EquiSports U25 Jumper Classic. A total of 27 horse and rider combinations came to play Aug. 23 on the grass field at the Del Mar Horse Park at the $25,000 Markel Insurance 1.45m Jumper Classic.

Eleven of the pairs cleared the first round fault-free, and returned for a “thrilling jump-off.” The track, engineered by FEI course designer Catsy Cruz of Mexico, involved forward lines and delicate combinations, as well as a triple bar set on the far side of the field. Fifth to go in the jumpoff, Potter had a plan. She rode Ariell La Sirene with speed and agility, slicing rollback turns and galloping between jumps, stopping the clock over a second faster than the leading time. “This particular jump-

area and that: “Oceanside has undoubtedly the finest beach in California,” while he was taking a break from Hollywood: “Douglas Fairbanks is now concentrating all his superb vitality and energy in one great effort to attain a real Arabian suit of tousled hair. He is succeeding too and in the forthcoming picture portraying the wonders of the Arabian Nights it will doubtless be impossible to distinguish him from a regular Bedouin chief. “The Fairbank’s company will be on location somewhere in the desert by July 4th if present plans eventuate properly. Otherwise he signifies his inclination to pass up invitations from popular centers such as New York City and Calgary and other places too numerous to mention and come to

Oceanside for July the 4th to act as a judge over the athletic events of the day.” During that visit, other members of the party with Pickford and Fairbanks who were camping at the spot included Mr. and Mrs. Frank Case of New York, Maurice Cleary and Edward Knobleck, the article said. “The camp established by Mary and Doug will probably be maintained and used by other film notables throughout the summer,” the Blade article added. On May 29, 1924, the Oceanside Blade again reported the famous duo were back in Oceanside for another summer of fun: “The Fairbanks-Pickford camp on the beach at the south end of Pacific street has been fitted up for summer occupancy with six sleeping tents and a big

off, I really only had two turns where I could make up time,” said Potter. “I tried, on both of those turns, to really cut them more than I had seen other riders do.” Her strategic approach made the speedy pair difficult to catch, though Ikast made an excellent effort.

They are expected back in about a month.” Their summer heydays at the camp were reported again on July 10, 1924, when the popular couple hosted the Examiner News Boys at the Camp: “… 20 boys from The Examiner Junior Sales Club and carriers will be were entertained by Jack Pickford, famous motion picture star, at the “End of the World Camp” at Oceanside, during the week beginning

CARMEL VALLEY — A woman who provided prescription drugs, alcohol and other narcotics to her daughter -— a student at Cathedral Catholic High School — and other minors was sentenced Aug. 24 to 11 years and eight months in state prison. Kimberly Dawn Quach, 49, pleaded guilty in May to five felony charges, including furnishing Xanax to a minor and employing a minor to transport or sell marijuana. Superior Court Judge Timothy Walsh — who imposed the maximum term under the plea agreement -— said Quach's conduct fell “well short of being a good parent.” “Her conduct is absolutely sickening to the court,” the judge said. Walsh said Quach exposed her 17- and 10-year-old daughters and their friends to extreme danger. “She literally taught them to be drug dealers,” the judge said. Quach’s live-in companion, William Sipperley III, 50, was sentenced to six years and four months in prison. He had pleaded guilty to using a minor to transport or sell marijuana and furnishing marijuana to a minor over 14 years old. Sipperley’s attorney, Domenic Lombardo, told the judge his client moved in with Quach after his wife of 36 years died and he had turned to taking drugs and smoking marijuana. Lombardo said Sipper-

ley did not condone the drug sales and parties at Quach’s Carmel Valley home and “should have been man enough to get out of there.” Deputy District Attorney Christina Eastman said two minors that Quach gave drugs to ended up in a drug rehabilitation program. Eastman said Quach was in the process of setting up a marijuana distribution operation in her home and wanted to be the “cool mom.” The prosecutor said Sipperley taught Quach’s then9-year-old daughter how to plant marijuana. Quach was arrested last year after police said she sold or offered the controlled substance suboxone, a prescription opiate, and Xanax to minors over a ninemonth period beginning Jan. 1, 2017. Quach also gave at least 10 teens marijuana to sell, package or transport, according to police, who said Cathedral Catholic students regularly smoked cannabis that Sipperley grew at the couple’s home on Aster Meadows Place in Carmel Valley. One detective said Quach had as many as 70 teenage clients at Cathedral Catholic and other schools. During a search of Quach's home, police found large containers of marijuana, plant food, grow lights and drug paraphernalia, according to the criminal complaint.

July 14. “The ‘End of the World Camp,’ a place not nearly so tragic as the name implies, is one of Southern California’s mysteries. It is situated on the beach near Oceanside and was established by Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks. It is their beach playground when they are at home. “This is where Jack Pickford will entertain the winners of The Examiner’s Newsboys’ Contest for the week of July 14,” the article said. And further love of Oceanside and the camp reported in the Blade noted: “During every day that Jack did not actually work on his new Picture, “The End of the World,” he was at the beach camp. In fact, this is the way he got his own vacation — a day or two

at a time. His wife, Marilyn Miller, Tom J. Geraghty, producer of Jack’s picture; Malcom Waite and several other friends made up the party that enjoyed these outings. “We had so much fun there,” said Jack, “that I wanted to share it with someone else, and that’s how I happened to think of The Examiner boys.” The bathing at the “End of the World” camp “is perfect,” according to Jack, the article noted. “There are many hikes to be taken, and all kinds of sports such as ball games, etc., can be indulged in on the beach.” It’s anybody’s guess as to where the “End of the World Camp” was (or maybe still is), but it sounds like anyone who had the chance to visit it surely thought it more than special.

Speaker shares how he battled back By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — Motivational speaker, philanthropist and actor Izzy Ezagui spoke recently at a special event hosted by the Chabad Jewish Center of Rancho Santa Fe. The Aug. 15 soiree was held at a private residence in the Ranch. Guests had the opportunity to hear the inspirational words of the American-born Miami native, who had a calling to join the Israel Defense Forces to help protect his Jewish heritage. Guests were moved after learning how this decorated squad commander, who was a regarded sharpshooter for the special forces, lost his left arm after a mortar shell landed nearby during the Operation Cast Lead combat in January 2009. He found the inner strength six months later to pass the rigorous physical tests letting him re-enlist back into his combat unit as a sharpshooter. Ezagui told guests that despite the harsh combination of realities after his injury in 2009, he knew from the very moment that he woke up that he wanted to continue his service. “I still had more to offer,” he said. “I remember sharing that sentiment with my parents the first time that I was lucid in the hospital bed about three days after the injury.” While his father had a hard time accepting such an idea, Ezagui said his mother shared how regardless of how they felt, they needed to stand behind their son. “I didn’t care whether or not they wanted me to do it — I was focused

on the fact that they were both talking about it as if it was possible,” Ezagui said. When Ezagui came to terms that he wanted to return to the battlefield, he explained that he had a few obstacles. While it took months for the physical wound to heal, he said,

it took some time to have his mobility return. “It took even longer for me to figure out how to take care of myself again, how to do all of those simple tasks that I could no longer do. But the wound did heal, and I did figure out how to survive the disability in the end,” he said.

It was the baby steps — the milestones. Walking turned into jogging, and jogging turned into running, Ezagui shared. And then he mastered pushups, climbed ropes and completed the military training obstacle courses once again. “Eventually I was reinstated to active duty combat. I spent four to five months in Hebron finally realizing my dream of protecting the Jewish people,” said Ezagui, adding how happy he wasn't at a training base. “They (Israel Defense Forces) actually sent me back to active duty, which was a dream come true. I finished my active service leading a squad of 13 soldiers through their advanced training.” He also received top military honors from former President Shimon Peres. Ezagui’s story has been aired on Fox News, Huffington Post Life and other media outlets. While delivering an inspirational message in his talks, he is also heavily involved in fundraising for various charities, hospitals and programs aimed at rehabilitation. Recently, Ezagui published a memoir entitled, “Disarmed: Unconventional Lessons from the World’s Only One-Armed Special Forces Sharpshooter.” Following his talk, guests had the opportunity to ask Ezagui questions, including some about his commitment to serving in the Reserves. “I will continue being in the Reserves for as long as my body allows,” he said.

Kiss me, I’m … somewhat Irish


This was the “Pup Olympics and Pool Pawty,” a fundraiser for the nonprofit organization Rescue Express. The group takes animals from high-kill shelters and overpopulated areas in Southern California and brings them up the coast to the Pacific Northwest, where Rescue Express founder Mike McCarthy says there is a shortage of adoptable animals. “We can sort of solve two problems by taking these animals out of the shelters they're going to be euthanized at and bringing them to an area where people can get the animals they want,” McCarthy said. Since 2015, the organization has rescued more than 17,000 animals. They have a fleet of four refurbished school buses that transport about 150 animals each. Recently, they acquired a tractor-trailer that holds 250 carriers. This means they can take more animals up the Interstate 5 corridor at a time — but that, McCarthy explains, increases costs, which is why they held the Pup Olympics. “That trip, which we make every weekend, is a $6,000 or $7,000 trip,” McCarthy said. “The proceeds of this will directly support those efforts.” Rescue Express operates out of McCarthy’s home in Rancho Santa Fe, which is also where they held the Pup Olympics. It was both a fundraiser and a means for outreach, explains Executive Director

You Can Prevent Falls! by Michelle Class

Among people age 65+ falls are the leading cause of injury death. 1 In 3 seniors fall every year. The leading cause for falling is lack of activity; decreased muscle, decreased flexibility, poor nutrition, medications, and home hazards. Muscle strength decreases 17-41% per decade after age 40. Not to worry there is a lot you can do to prevent falls. Most importantly exercise can reduce your risk of falling by improving strength, balance, flexibility, and bone mass. I asked senior inhome trainer Rachael Stoltz, a leader in senior health and author of the book “Your Past Is Not Your Future” what types of workouts were right for fall prevention. Stoltz answered “The key to fall prevention is building lean muscle. Developing lean muscle decreases joint pain, builds bone density, and decreases injuries. Lean muscle gives you better balance, builds strength and burns fat at rest. For me it’s not just about strength training it’s a combination of weight training, balance training, nutritional counseling, foam rolling, stretching, and reviewing home safety checklists for fall prevention. It’s important to learn the right way to stand, sit, and get off the floor. Anyone can be strong, feel safe, and maintain their independence.” Rachael Stoltz has a bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology with an emphasis in Physical Therapy. I asked Stoltz’s longtime client about his experience with fall prevention. Roger Beale said, “I’m 83 years old. I had been training with Rachael for a while to gain strength and balance. I tripped and fell and caught myself in a push up position. I jumped my legs in and stood up! Rachael has changed my life she’s given the confidence in my abilities so that I can keep my independence.” Concierge Personal Training is a business founded by San Diegan Rachael Stoltz.

Kentucky and Derby travel all over the region competing in mostly dog surfing competitions. “I don’t care what he does, as long as he’s out here having fun and putting smiles on people’s faces, that’s all we do it for,” Gallahue said. Although this was the first fundraising event for Rescue Express, McCarthy was impressed by the high turnout. “Ticket sales slowly grew, and I think we ended up with 150 people,” McCarthy said. “It’s great. It feels good to be supported.” For more information on Rescue Express, visit www.rescueexpress.org.

spray my hair green every St Patrick’s Day. I fancied that I was at least half Irish, but couldn’t resist the temptation to get my DNA read. I thought it would be a really fun thing for my family to all send in our DNA, with a surprise reveal on Thanksgiving. I read up on it, and came away with the impression it could take up to four months for the DNA to get processed, so I bought the kits in July and demanded everyone spit in the tube forthwith. Four of us did. My son and his lovely wife gently declined.

And I was still curious just how Irish and/or German I was. Meanwhile, the results came rolling in within weeks. Now the decision was whether to wait and make the reveal an event or satisfy our extreme curiosity. Curiosity won. It quickly became clear that there were no real surprises lurking in my gene pool.

heritage, having my son participate was almost unnecessary. I was gleeful to confirm that my incredibly fair-skinned husband did, indeed, have a large chunk of Scandinavian in him. He always insisted he was just French Huguenot, but one look at his total lack of melanin said otherwise to me. I was a bit crushed to find that I was less Irish than I thought, presuming 50 percent, since my dad, his mom and dad and their moms and dads were straight from the Emerald Isle. Irish, it seems, is a rather vague definition. This makes perfect sense, of course, based on how Ireland, Wales, Scotland and England are cheekby-jowl with one another, never mind all the raping and pillaging in European history. Everybody traveled everywhere and, well, made friends. So, I am allegedly 32 percent Irish, Welsh, Scottish and 26 percent Northern European, which is basically my mother’s German-Dutch lineage. The other 22 percent was British, which seems a logical mix with the Irish, Welsh and Scottish. The remaining portion included some charming wanderer from Spain or Portugal. I wish he’d been around during Spanish class. In the really small bits, there were hints of Finnish, Russian, Italian and Greek. Clearly, my ancestors were open-minded and equal-opportunity procreators. The final blow was that my buxom, blonde daughter, who looks just exactly like every one of my maternal German-Dutch aunts, is more Irish than I am. She will enjoy gloating about that for some time to come, but it should lead to some terrific St. Patrick’s Day parties. In fact, I see the entire exercise as a great excuse to celebrate even more international holidays. So prost, slainte, na zdrowie, kippis and salud!

Ranch resident perfects the art of silversmithing By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — Inside her studio workshop, Julie Monroe casts a glance at her handmade silver jewelry pieces and pays particular attention to the rocks and minerals used in her various pieces. For this Ranch resident, jewelry making is more than a hobby — it’s a passion. Reviving the lost art of silversmithing, Studio Jules Silversmith has been in existence for a little more than a decade. When Monroe and her husband sold their company in 2009, she knew it was a fantastic opportunity for her to delve into jewelry making entirely. She had dabbled in it from time to time but couldn’t immerse herself in it when operating their business. Monroe said it always intrigued her how silversmithing originated many years ago. “Back in Africa, the authentic silversmiths made the most incredible art, as did the Navajo Indians, as well as the Hopi Indians, which made the most beautiful things,” she said. “It just inspired and touched me.” When Monroe first started her jewelry-making quest, she said she made cute silver pieces but admitted she couldn’t solder yet. “I could cut out silver, and I could, what we call, cold connect, which is using rivets and wires and different things to hold pieces together,” Monroe. Since that time, Monroe has come a long way. She was first self-taught and then ventured off by taking a forging class. “We hammered for eight hours, and I thought my left bicep would never be the same,” she said. “I loved the idea though of the hand forging — that part stayed with me but in a more simplified way where I created pieces that didn’t require almost being a blacksmith.” Now, Monroe uses a torch. After selling the family company, Monroe decided it was time for schooling and attended the regarded John C. Campbell Folk School not too far from her former residence in Asheville, North Carolina. She took comprehensive courses where she had concentrated and perfected her skills in silversmithing. When Monroe and her husband moved to Rancho Santa Fe in 2014, she knew she wanted to get into the art community and decided to learn how to make cabochons at the San Diego Mineral and Gem Society. “It was a very desirable place to learn,” she said. When Monroe was bumped up to the advanced class, she was asked by her instructor Dennis Turner to teach his beginning class while he was overseas for a few months. “For a three-and-a-half month span of time I got to teach the beginners, and it was incredible,” Monroe

shared. Monroe loved the teaching aspect of it all that she decided to branch off into accepting private students into her studio. Handcrafted jewelry means just that to Monroe. She makes everything by

hand, including jump rings and clasps. Now, Monroe even makes her stones. She used to buy them, and now she caps them. “I don’t want to be limited to just what I can go get,” Monroe said. “I’ve handled the rock, slabbed the rock,

cut the stone, turned it into a cabochon, and then set it in silver.” Monroe shared that her favorite part of creating jewelry is the process of it all. She remembers like it was yesterday driving around with her daughter a few years ago and having to pull over to scribble down a design that popped into her mind. “That used to drive my daughter crazy,” she said. “Then from that, you have to imagine it in silver, and so you have to sit down and diagram what it’s going to look like in your head as best you

can.” Even with a rough draft diagram, Monroe said she could visualize the finished piece. And that’s the challenge — creating what she conceptualized in the first place. “I love the endless creativity,” she said. “When I’m creating I’m in Zen land — it’s my salvation from now being retired.” Monroe is thrilled with the fact that she has the rare opportunity to make beautiful pieces of jewelry for people. “I get to gift beautiful things for people and just


have the self-satisfaction of making such lovely pieces out of flat metal and wire,” she said, noting how a core of her business is dedicated to custom work. “While I’m humble about the work that I do, I do it to satisfy whatever is in my soul that made me start doing this.” For more information about private classes and custom work, Monroe can be reached at studiojulessilversmith@gmail.com or (828) 545-5299.

Brett’s BBQ closing in September By Carey Blakely

DELICIOUS MEDITERRANEAN food discoveries await you at Maestoso, a new Italian restaurant in Hillcrest. Marco Maestoso and Dalila Ercolani are the owners, shown above with a Pancetta dessert. Photo by Frank Mangio

Maestoso’s maestro taste of wine frank mangio


arco Maestoso is a man on a mission. He and his lovely co-owner of Maestoso, Dalila Ercolano, operate a delightfully refreshing new Italian restaurant in the Hillcrest district of San Diego called Maestoso. Before dining at Maestoso, you must rid yourself of any old ideas about checkered tablecloths, straw wine bottles and mounds of old Mozzarella cheese. This is not your

paisan’s restaurant. Maestoso’s food is excitingly different, so much so you’ll want to try everything on the menu. Take the pizza. It’s not called pizza, it’s called La Pinza, a trendy but traditional Roman alternative that is oval shaped and will easily feed two, as an appetizer or main course. You will have your choice of seven different creations. I fell in love with two: the La Mortazza, packed with mortadella sliced meat, burrata, pistachio crumble and cheery tomato confit. The other was the Melanzana di Casa, with eggplant tomato sauce, buffalo cheese TURN TO TASTE OF WINE ON 19

ENCINITAS — Two guys, united by a love of food and the joy it can bring people, launched Brett’s BBQ on Encinitas Boulevard in 2008. And now those same two guys, Bruce Weisman and Brett Nicholson, find themselves in the unfortunate situation of having to close their business. In a sign of the times when mom-and-pop shops find it hard to compete with deeper pockets, the lease for Brett’s BBQ is being terminated in order to make way for medical offices to be developed for the University of California, San Diego. Co-owner Weisman said it’s too expensive to move. He estimates that it would cost about $350,000 to relocate to a different commercial space. Plus, it would require getting a new loan. Weisman said, “I would love for someone to buy the business, and I would help with the initial setup and recipes.” But as it stands now, Weisman does not know what the future will bring. “It’s been a great ride,” he said, choking up. “My job is not done until everyone who works here is hired somewhere else. I won’t put my feet up until then.” One employee, a chef named Alberto Arvizu, has known the owners for 34 years and has worked with them in various capacities since he was a teenager. Two sisters have worked for Weisman for 23 years, starting as cashiers at candy stores he once owned and then continuing to Brett’s BBQ. All the employees said they’d stay until the final

smokers around 6 p.m. and stay there overnight for 14 or 15 hours, while the ribs, chicken, turkey and tri tip smoke for about four hours. Weisman joked that the smoking of meats “is a vicious cycle because it never stops.” All the side dishes and sauces are made onsite. Nicholson, who hails from Indiana, said, “It’s barbecue the way it should be done: smoked using wood.” He noted that Southern California is not known for its barbecue and that very few places here smoke their meats. Nicholson wants to thank their customers and said, “It’s always rewarding to see people keep returning.” He shared that one man named Clarence, who recently passed away, used to dine at Brett’s BBQ with his wife three to four days a week. Brett’s BBQ has also been a mainstay in community events through its catering services, which have fed Little League players and local high-school students, for example. The final catering job — for 1,300 people — will be on Sept. 27 and 28 for SEPT. 8-9, 2018 Scripps.

L.A. Times food writer David Nelson wrote fondly of Remington’s, which closed in Del Mar in 1991, recalling “the immense portions, the superb quality and the prices that at times seemed to rival the national debt.” The food at Brett’s BBQ is “old school,” Weisman said. The two owners created and lived by the motto: “If it’s not smoked, it’s not barbecue.” Using 1,000-pound smokers fueled by burning hickory wood, the dryrubbed meats slow cook on low heat for a long time.

Weisman is grateful that the new landlord reduced the rent at the end of the lease and gave Brett’s BBQ extra time to vacate the premises, which will allow them to do the big catering job at the end of September. But he’s sad that he’s had to turn away customers who have been attempting recently to place their Thanksgiving turkey orders with him. After serving heaping plates of pulled pork smothered in barbecue sauce and homemade mac’n’cheese, Weisman said the hours in the restaurant business are long. He smiled and said, “It’s a tough business that I wouldn’t wish on anyone, but I sure like it.”

Family dentist brings the beach vibe to his practice SOLANA BEACH — Growing up in Wisconsin as the son of a small-town dentist, Dr. Brad Wilson loved to vacation with his family along the West Coast. As he grew older, he became sure of two things: he wanted to practice dentistry, and he wanted to do it near the beach. With passion, ambition and a little bit of luck, Dr. Wilson is living the life he always wanted here in Solana Beach. “Being close to the beach, we have created a similar vibe here at our office that is calming and relaxed,” Dr. Wilson said. “Our goal is to remove the anxiety and dread some patients associate with dentistry and make this a place where they feel comfortable.” When patients walk through the door, they are made to feel immediately at home. “Mary at the front desk knows all our patients

old Hunter blasted the timing of the indictment, saying the Department of Justice decided to take the action right before the general election in November. Although he represents a solidly conservative district, Democrats have been targeting his seat — thanks largely to the federal investigation of Hunter. The congressman called the two-year investigation leading up to the indictment a “witch hunt,” saying it was politically motivated. He said he would continue to fight to clear his name. Federal prosecutors said they identified “scores of instances” between 2009 and 2016 in which the Hunters used campaign funds to pay for “personal expenses that they could not otherwise afford.” Among the personal expenses they allegedly funded with campaign cash were family vacations to locations such as Hawaii and Italy, along with school tuition and smaller purchases such as golf outings, movie tickets, video games, coffee


why two of the prosecutors in this investigation were at the fundraiser and then were intimately involved in this investigation.” Prosecutors Phillip Halpern and Mark Conover did not comment as they left the courthouse. The Hunters were indicted Aug. 21 by a federal grand jury in San Diego on charges of conspiracy to commit offenses against the United States, wire fraud, falsification of records and prohibited use of campaign contributions. As the Republican congressman arrived at the courthouse in downtown San Diego, he was met by a group of vocal protesters, some of whom shouted “Lock him up,” echoing a chant commonly heard from supporters of President Donald Trump in reference to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. At least one protester held a sign saying “Crooked Duncan Hunter.” On Aug. 22, the 41-year-

Brad Wilson DDS General and Cosmetic Dentistry offers the full range of general dentistry as well as the latest in dental implants and cosmetics. “We offer preventative services such as checkups and cleanings, and restorative and cosmetic services like veneers, whitening, all-porcelain crowns and more,” Dr. Wilson said. Implant dentistry is a specialty of Dr. Wilson’s, as he was trained at the prestigious San Francisco VA Medical Center. He is particularly excited to offer his patients Straumann implants, which are widely recognized as being top of the line in the industry. “It’s important to me that my patients have access to the highest quality products on the market,” Dr. Wilson said. “Straumann implants allow for the easiest healing and the most predictable long-term results.”

Dr. Wilson and his wife, Emily, have three young daughters; Maia, Taylor and Sadie. He believes strongly in providing the care to his patients that he would want for his own family. His dreams have come true as he now practices in Solana Beach and he and his family love to spend their weekends at the beach. As for the people of North County, Dr. Wilson can’t imagine a better place to practice. “I love the community here,” he said. “I have found that the patients in this area are great to work with. I love being able to meet whole families that come to see us and it’s great to see so many of our patients know each other in the close-knit community of Solana Beach.” Dr. Wilson invites the community to come meet him and his team. “We have an amazing team here,” he said. “Our hygienists Liz and Susan have established

relationships with all of our patients and provide gentle yet thorough cleanings. Mary at the front desk keeps everything running smoothly and gets to know each and every patient who calls or comes through the door. It’s a very warm and inviting place.” While the practice has been at its location for over 20 years, Dr. Wilson officially took over early last year and has been steadily growing the practice. He is now adding more days to be able to bring in new patients and accommodate his patients’ busy schedules. Find Brad Wilson DDS at 530 Lomas Santa Fe Drive #2 in Solana Beach.

and expensive meals. The couple allegedly mis-reported the expenses on FEC filings, using false descriptions such as “campaign travel,” “toy drives,” “dinner with volunteers/ contributors” and “gift cards,” according to federal prosecutors. House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin, called

the charges against Hunter “deeply serious” and removed him from his committee assignments “pending the resolution of this matter.” Hunter was a member of the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, and chairman of its Subcommittee on Coast Guard and Maritime Transporta-

tion, the House Armed Services Committee and Education and the Workforce Committee. Hunter was elected to Congress in 2008, after his father, Duncan Hunter Sr., opted not to seek reelection. He represents the 50th District, which includes much of eastern San Diego County.

Next up, the board discussed the four firms vying for a consultant spot in the district’s superintendent search. Kahn shared that Dr. George Cameron, a former superintendent for the National City school district, was a standout describing his as a boutique-style firm. Kahn believed there would be a different approach but with the same benefits. “He (Dr. Cameron) was a longtime superintendent in National City — he’s different in the sense that he’s walked the talk and very successful,” Kahn said. Kahn wanted to know Seltzer’s viewpoint since he had prior experience in selecting the last superintendent.

T he R ancho S anta F e News While Seltzer said he didn’t want to disparage any of the other firm candidates, he said for him the most telling thing is how easy it is to get caught up in the pizzazz of a firm’s huge presentation. “What it comes down for me is that we want someone who can be as customized and personalized as possible in their dealings with candidates, when they talk to the board, and they meet with parents,” Seltzer said. He also noted how the consultant would gather criteria through surveys and town halls. “You want someone who has that personalized touch. To me, of the four (firms), it was clear that it was Dr. Cameron and his partner,” Seltzer said. Neal noted Cameron’s

willingness to have the board review all the applicants. She went on to say how some firms only offer the board their “top five” picks so she appreciated that Cameron would bring all potential candidates to the table. “I thought that was really important,” she said. The board unanimously approved Cameron and his partner as its consultant to lead their superintendent search. Until a new superintendent is hired, Principal Kim Pinkerton will continue to serve as the interim superintendent as decided during a special meeting on July 23. On Aug. 3, the board approved a temporary interim assistant principal position to assist Pinkerton during this period of transition. Seltzer wants parents and community members to know that a page has been created on the district’s website to keep people upto-date on the superintendent search.

Joyce Dalessandro and President Beth Hergesheimer’s seats are not up for grabs until 2020, although there is a petition circulating to recall Dalessandro. The Coast News will cover all the candidates in more detail as the election draws nearer. In other district news, the search for a permanent superintendent continues with executive-search firm Hazard, Young, Attea and Associates at the helm. Larry Perondi, retired superintendent of Oceanside Unified School District, has been running San Dieguito on an interim basis since July 1. Perondi replaced Eric Dill, who resigned on May 25. The district expects to interview the final candidates in mid-September. As part of its search process this summer, Hazard, Young, Attea and Associates conducted a “State of the District” analysis based on feedback from administrators and other staff, parents, students and community members. And in a nod to increasing transparency, the last board meeting on Aug. 16 was video recorded. The board voted unanimously to post that video, as well as all future ones, online within 72 business hours. In May, the board voted 3-2, with Hergesheimer and Dalessandro opposed, to install a camera for the purpose of recording board meetings and then sharing the footage with the public. Students head back to class for the start of the new school year on Tuesday, Aug. 28.

Beyond Botox: Regenerative medicine changes the face of aesthetics We all want to look and feel our best—to radiate health, vitality, and happiness into the world. When we look in the mirror, we don’t want to see the changes of aging, sun damage, acne scars, or hair loss—we want to see the best natural version of ourselves. Increasingly, regenerative medicine is giving us the opportunity to do just that. As it has revolutionized the world of medicine, regenerative medicine is changing the face of aesthetics. Stand-alone traditional aesthetic procedures, such as Botox and hyaluronic acid fillers, can be degenerative, temporary, and unnatural—damaging fragile local microcirculation, obscuring facial expression, and requiring frequent re-treatments. To answer these concerns, a new palette of regenerative options is

emerging: • platelet therapies (PRP/PRF); • micro- and nano-fat injections; • umbilical cord, cord blood, and amniotic tissue-derived cellular therapies; • and exosome preparations. These regenerative treatments can hypercharge your own healing systems, reversing the signs of aging and creating long-lasting improvements in skin quality and hair loss. As is true in other fields, starting early is key to slowing degeneration, reversing sun damage, and supporting natural collagen and elastin. Simple, natural therapies—such as PRP microneedling using your own platelets—optimizes skin quality, smooths acne scarring, and maintains your healthy glow by improving microcirculation and build-

ing collagen. For deeper lines and more advanced degeneration, the skillful blending of regenerative platelet and micro-/nano-fat therapies

with traditional non-surgical and structural options such as PDO threads adds lift and support to the regenerating tissues, producing subtle, natural results.

Advanced non-surgical hair loss regenerative therapy is also optimized through multilevel processes combining platelets, growth factors, and cellular

therapies with more traditional topicals and infrared therapies. As a regenerative specialist, Dr. Bunyak brings her years of experience in cellular and regenerative therapy to the skin level, helping her patients not only feel boundless, but look it as well. To celebrate the tenyear anniversary of the practice, BOUNDLESS Regenerative is currently offering 50% off all microneedling with PRP treatments completed in September. Join Dr. Bunyak for an overview of the new world of regenerative aesthetics on Friday, September 14, from 11-11:45 a.m. Seating is limited to 12 for this free talk, so bring a friend and call today to RSVP: 760632-1090. For more information about truly regenerative aesthetics offerings, visit www.feelboundless.com.

ButterFlies Smile® mobile dental program aims to keep seniors smiling REGION — “I have a passion for helping other people,” Dr. Roya Mirkhan said. It’s this passion, combined with her more than 18 years of experience, that has enabled her to give her patients top-quality care. The senior population, especially, has had an overwhelming response to what Dr. Mirkhan and the team at Advanced Dentistry & Implant Center offers its patients. Recognizing that dental neglect is an unfortunate trend in her elderly patients, she created the ButterFlies Smile®, program to ensure each and

every patient, no matter their age or ability, not only realizes the importance of dental care, but has access to the best available. “I treat a lot of elderly patients for their implant needs due to teeth loss,” Dr. Mirkhan said. “I decided to establish a state-ofthe-art dental mobile care service so that I can treat my patients anywhere, even if they are medically compromised, for any dental procedures from deep cleaning to simple fillings to extractions and dentures or implants. We eliminate the need for seniors to travel or to worry.”

Routine dental exams become even more important as we age, and poor oral health can lead to periodontal disease and tooth decay. “Untreated gum disease is directly related to our overall health,” she said. “It can contribute to heart disease, stroke, arthritis, diabetes and high blood pressure. So it is crucial that seniors get quality dental care to improve their overall helath and stay healthy.” Dr. Mirkhan is a speDR.

‘Creme of the County’ set to tip off CARLSBAD — Four years ago, Army Navy hosted the inaugural 3P Creme of the County, a high-school basketball exposure showcase aimed at providing basketball players in the Greater San Diego area, from eighth grade to 12th grade, an opportunity to showcase their talent in front of top scouts, college coaches and the community. After a two-year sojourn to central San Diego, the 3P Creme of the County is returning to Carlsbad on Sept. 1. The event, organized by The Coast News writer Aaron Burgin, has grown in size and influence since its inception, drawing the top scouts on the West Coast. This year’s event will feature McDonald’s All-American voter Frank Burlison, former ESPN West Coast Scouting Director Joel Francisco, Pangos Camps Director Dinos Trigonis, Prep Hoops So-Cal director Devin Ugland, Northern California scouting guru Gerry Freitas and Cal-Hi Sports lead writer Ronnie Flores. Additionally, the staffs of San Diego City College, Miramar College, Southwestern College, University of Saint Katherine, Whittier College, University of La Verne, Life Pacific College and Fullerton College are among the schools that will be in attendance. In addition, Burgin himself operates an NCAA-compliant scouting service, Full-Time Hoops, which distributes analysis and basketball scouting reports to college coaches. “There are very few events during the calendar year that can bring as many influential basketball stakeholders together, and I’m very proud that the Creme of the County is one of these events,” Burgin said. “This provides our kids with the ultimate platform to showcase their talents and perhaps help them on their way to a basketball career after their high school days are over, and that is what matters most.” Players play in hourlong games, with teams being picked by Burgin and a panel of coaches. Top players participate in “Creme” games, while other standouts play in “Select” games. The top players in each event will be named “Most Valuable Player” for their respective games. Top North County players expected to participate include Vista senior guard Jordan Hilstock, San Marcos sophomore guard Chris Howell, Torrey Pines seniors Bryce and Michael Pope and La Costa Canyon guard Graham Cook. The event takes place at Duffield Sports Center, 2600 Carlsbad Blvd., Carlsbad and begins at 9 a.m. Admission is $5 for the public.

and parmesan. “La Pinza is an oval shaped pizza style dish with 17 different grains plus Molina flour,” Ercolani explained. “All ingredients are imported from Italy. The dough is aged 100 hours to eliminate that bloated feeling found in most pizzas. Marco is brilliant at mixing custom toppings, using his intelligence in artistically discovering combinations found from his time as a Michelin trained international chef. Each Pinza is $17. A lively and popular feature at Maestoso is “Passaggi,”(passage in Italian), an exclusive concept where one of the several chefs at the restaurant push a cart full of their special dishes they have made that evening, and present it to each table as a special off the menu treat. Each dish is attractively priced for diners to pick and choose. Each night is always a different set of dish items. Looking for a fine dining choice? Maestoso has it on the menu with Branzino, an Italian sea bass, Risottto Milanese and Agnello Scottadito, a Mediterranean lamb rack with a delicious mushroom spread on the side. Wines come in all Italian flavors and varietals. From Nero D’Avola in Sicily to Batasiolo Barbara in Piemonte, Maestoso has you covered with silky tannic whites to richly bodied reds. We have to mention a special dessert, a Pancetta, made by Chef Marco and presented as an Italian Meringue, hand-torched with lemon glaze and Guanciale (pork cheek). It looked like a sunny side up egg with bacon crumbles, but no, an amazing pancetta! Above the door leading to the kitchen is a sign for every Maestoso worker to
