RANCHO SANTA FE — A new home for the Rancho Santa Fe Pharmacy located on the corner of El Tordo and La Granada is moving along quickly to replace the current pharmacy across the street. The pharmacy will remain open during the construction of the 4,466-square-foot building. Rancho Santa Fe Association Building Commissioner Tom Farrar is in communications with both the county and pharmacy owner. According to Farrar, the most recent update is that full construction drawing is under review with the county. “The county has approved the site plan, has approved the architectural elevations and soil reclamation plan,” he said. “The last set of approvals that TURN TO PHARMACY ON 6

Encinitas detailer works on retired Air Force One

Bo Derek presented with HWAC’s Humane Award

ENCINITAS — Some auto dealers simply detail cars, others have the high distinction of spiffing up a retired Air Force One jet. Meet Encinitas-based detailer Jose Junco of High Performance Auto Detail, who recently returned from Seattle’s Museum of Flight to once again be part of the 15th annual Air Force One Detailing Team. His task, along with 64 other detailers from around the country, was to clean up the first presidential jet, Air Force One, and take a shot at preserving the museum’s newest acquisition, a Boeing B-52G Stratofortress Bomber known as Midnight Express. Junco, 36, a single dad,

is trained and certified by the International Detailing Association and by Renny Doyle’s Detailing Success, making him among the best for the job. Of this opportunity a second time around, he said: “To see Air Force One shining in the sunlight from year-to-year is a testament to our commitment, hard work and skill. I am proud to be a part of this project the past two years; I look forward to many years ahead as a caretaker of aviation history.” Junco said he relished the chance to be part of the massive project. “The chance again to work with some of the TURN TO DETAILER ON 13

DEL MAR — If you attended the 2018 San Diego County Fair — or live near the Del Mar Fairgrounds where the event is held — and thought traffic was unusually bad this year, you’re not alone. “For river systems, the term hundred-year flood is generally expressed as flow rate rather than defining how often it occurs,” Solana Beach Councilwoman Jewel Edson said at a July 10 meeting. “A hundred-year flood refers to the severity of the flood. “During the final week of the fair the traffic experienced by our surrounding neighborhoods was the vehicular equivalent of a hundred-year flood,” she added. “The traffic management afforded by the fairgrounds was ineffective at best, and had a life-threatening emergency been experienced by a resident or visitor in one of the affected neighborhoods I’m not confident that the first responders could have reached them.” “Something broke this year that has not broken in years,” Del Mar Councilman Dave Druker said after a presentation by fairgrounds officials at the July 16 meeting. “It was just horrible. “I just want to make sure that it doesn’t continue to break into the future,” he added. “You need to figure this out if it breaks again.” Katie Mueller, fairgrounds deputy general manager, said a combination of factors caused a spike in traffic during the final week of the fair, which

ended July 4. Attendance ranged from 35,555 on opening day to 82,418 on closing day, with a daily average of 60,047. There were peaks and valleys throughout the 26-day run, with 32 percent of total attendance during the last seven days. “A lot of those peaks occur at the end of the fair, which is very, very typical,” Mueller said. “There’s an urgency to attend an event because it’s a limited period of time and people start to realize (they’ve) got to get to the fair because it’s almost over.” Also not helping congestion was a soccer tournament at the polo fields from June 29 through July 2, during which about 930 more cars were parked per day. Add to that increased commuter traffic, construction on Interstate 5, phone apps that route motorists through neighborhoods, weather that attracts people to nearby beaches and a loss of 1,735 parking spaces as a result of wetlands conversion. Despite all that, Mueller said the fairgrounds is doing everything in its control to help alleviate the problems. “Traffic doesn’t just create concerns in your local community,” she said. “It creates problems for us operating the fair.” She said it delays the workforce and impacts attendance because people might think twice about coming back.

Golf event held ‘to move Kayla’s loving spirit forward’ By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — The second annual Live Like Kayla Charity Golf Tournament slated for Aug. 6 is expected to draw more than 75 players at the Santaluz Club in Rancho Santa Fe. While the day aims to raise funds for scholarships, it’s also a time to remember Makayla (Kayla) Castro, who succumbed to her severe injuries after a tragic fall at Echo Canyon on Camelback Mountain in 2016. Kayla Castro was only 18. According to Allison Castro, Kayla’s mother, the first golf tournament last year raised $40,000. To date, Allison Castro said, the Live Like Kayla Foundation, headquartered in North County, has provided 24 scholarships and sponsorships to deserving young adults in San Diego. Since the foundation was established two years ago, it has doled out $25,000. The scholarship money stays in San Diego County. “The goal with the foundation is to move Kayla’s loving spirit forward,” Allison Castro said. “While the last two years have been extremely painful, we have chosen to turn our pain into purpose by helping others, the way Kayla did her entire life. There is no greater gift for us than to have the recipients of the Live Like Kayla scholarships move that giving spirit forward.” The scholarships and sponsorships aim to benefit young adults and those who are underprivileged. Allison Castro wants people to know that the Live Like Kayla Golf Tournament is more about Kayla than golf. It’s about reach-

ing out and giving back. “We want everyone at all skill levels to come out and focus on the fun of the day and embrace the idea that we can all come together to honor Kayla,” she said. “And

in doing so, we can help so many deserving young adults in our communities and create a positive social change.” Also coming together are roughly 30 of Kayla’s friends to

take part in the day. One of those friends is Simone Aldern, who had known Castro since kindergarten. Both also graduated from San Pasqual High School in Escondido. Aldern went to UCSD and Kay-

la Castro attended the Grand Canyon University in Phoenix with a full academic scholarship. “I know this sounds kind of cliché, but Kayla really was the nicest, sweetest girl with the biggest heart,” Aldern said. “She never had anything bad to say about anyone. She would always lift up your spirit.” Aldern said the foundation provides scholarships to kids who mirror similar characteristics that Kayla Castro embraced in her own life. She also said the Live Like Kayla Foundation is one of the best ways to honor her friend who passed away in 2016. In addition to the golf tournament, guests can expect golfing contests, opportunity drawings, must-have silent auction items and catered dinner. Aldern said the day is jampacked with fun activities. Some event sponsors for the second annual Live Like Kayla Charity Golf Tournament include Adidas, TaylorMade, Cyndi Stetson and Tammra Crawford of Willis Allen in Rancho Santa Fe, Rudy Project/XX2i Sport Sunglasses & Sport Readers, MVP, The Pinery, One Home Loans, ANDBio, McKenzie Farms, Stealth Grid and Infiniti of Mission Viejo. Aldern said the Foundation has inadvertently helped her in the grieving process. “Kayla’s death was so unexpected and very tragic, so it was a hard thing to process,” she said. “But this (foundation) helps me feel connected to Kayla.” To learn more about the second annual Live Like Kayla Charity Golf Tournament, visit www. livelikekayla.org.

What unlimited party money laundering can do


Historic water deal provides supplies that are less expensive, more reliable By Mark Muir

A historic achievement for the San Diego region passed almost unnoticed when the San Diego County Water Authority’s Board of Directors adopted new wholesale water rates in late June. The rate-setting process highlighted how the Water Authority’s independent water supplies from the Colorado River are now both less expensive and more reliable than supplies from the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California. It’s an accomplishment that the region’s water officials started working toward two decades ago, and one that will bear fruit for decades to come. The value of our independent water supplies will grow in coming years given the rapid increases in MWD’s rates, which have risen far faster than the cost of the Water Authority’s Colorado River supplies secured in 2003 through a complex, multi-state pact known as the Quantification Settlement Agreement. From the start, that landmark deal helped secure our economy and quality of life by giving us a major new source of water with a high-

er priority — or legal right — to Colorado River water than MWD. The agreement allowed the Water Authority to transfer increasingly large amounts of conserved water from the Imperial Valley to San Diego, so that by 2020 it will meet about half of our region’s projected water demand. That visionary agreement also minimized the impact of MWD’s water delivery cutbacks during the past two droughts. In 2015, for example, MWD reduced water deliveries by 15 percent, but the Water Authority’s independent supplies meant we had enough water to meet 99 percent of normal demand. While the supply benefits of the conservation-and-transfer agreement have long been clear, the region is just now starting to feel the cost benefits as well. Here’s why: At the start, our independent Colorado River supplies were more expensive than MWD water. However, the cost of the Water Authority’s independent Colorado River supplies is controlled by a contract linked to the rate of inflation, which means those costs are rising far more slowly than MWD’s rates

and charges. In addition, the Water Authority has benefited from lawsuits that forced MWD to drop illegal charges for delivering our independent Colorado River supplies. A 2017 appellate court ruling netted the Water Authority about $15 million in savings in 2019, with tens of millions of additional savings in years to come. The combined effect is that the Water Authority’s independent Colorado River supplies are less expensive than MWD supplies by $44 per acre-foot this year. In 2019, the difference will grow to $68 per acre-foot, and in 2020 our independent supplies are projected to be less expensive by $121 per acre-foot. That’s worth celebrating because it means regional wholesale water rate increases in 2019 are among the lowest in 15 years – a testament to the all those who have worked for decades to secure a safe, reliable and cost-effective water supply for everyone who calls this place home. Mark Muir chairs the board of the San Diego County Water Authority

Getting ready to be counted in 2020 By Marie Waldron

The first national census was taken in 1790 and we’re gearing up for the next one in 2020. There’s a lot riding on the census. For one thing, Congressional representation is based on an accurate count, and distribution of around $65 billion in federal funding will be heavily impacted by the census. While every state gets two senators regardless of population, an incorrect count could easily impact representation in the House of Representatives. And if we’re undercounted, fewer of our tax dollars will make the round trip from California to Washington and back. At the state level, the

new census will result in redrawing of State Assembly and Senate boundaries. The last time that happened was in 2011, which had a major impact locally. For example, after the census Escondido was no longer split between two Assembly districts with two separate Assemblymembers in Sacramento. The 2020 census will be the first one conducted largely online. With 31 percent of California considered “under-connected,” and with 9 of the nation’s 50 hardest-tocount counties in California, this may be problematic. Incidentally, one of those hard to count counties is San Diego. Among the hardest to count populations are the homeless, immigrants, ru-

ral white renters and Native Americans. The president gets the final numbers by the end of 2020, and redistricting counts will be reported to the states by March 31, 2021, to be used in redrawing district boundaries for the 2022 election. Preliminary planning for the census is already underway. In 2010, California budgeted just $2 million for the census; $90 million is being budgeted this time. We need an accurate count and the work is already underway to make sure we get one. Minority Floor Leader Marie Waldron, R-Escondido, represents the 75th Assembly District in the Legislature

or most Californians, the year2000 Proposition 34 was little more than a meaningless formality. But not to politicians or political party officials. The 18-year-old initiative sets inflation-adjusted limits on what individuals and organizations can donate to candidates, ranging today from $4,400 for state legislative races to $29,200 for those running for governor. But there are no limits on giving to state and local political parties or how they can spend that money. This gets little notice from most Californians, even those who examine the fine print on election-time mailers to see who is behind them. But it surely means a lot to politicians and their parties. The power these rules give parties to launder money earmarked for particular candidates was behind the bitter and very close race last winter between Eric Bauman and Kimberly Ellis over who would be the next chairperson of the California Democratic Party. But perhaps the most dramatic and clear-cut example of political parties’ power to launder cash and pass it along to intended recipients involved a locally well-known power couple during the spring primary campaign in San Diego County. The couple: Democratic state Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher and her husband, Nathan Fletcher, a former Republican whip in the Assembly and a two-time loser in runs for mayor of San Diego. Fletcher, who converted from Republican to Democrat in 2012 and 2013, with an intermediate

california focus thomas d. elias stop as an independent, was one of five primary election candidates this spring for a seat on his county’s Board of Supervisors, getting large-scale financial support from the local Democratic Party and some from the county’s labor unions. But nothing matches what he’s gotten from his wife. By the end of the primary season, Gonzalez Fletcher had transferred $355,000 of her Assembly campaign funds to the county’s Democratic Party, far outstripping other San Diego politicians like state Senate President Toni Atkins ($16,000) and Democratic Assemblyman Todd Gloria ($9,000). The reason was obvious. While Gonzalez Fletcher was giving the party enormous sums, the organization was passing much more to her husband – a total of $680,000, of which he got $188,000 in just one week. So there’s little doubt that Gonzalez Fletcher’s campaign funds were staying in the family. The most obvious example of this happening came one day in May, when she gave $50,000 to the party and the very same day the organization spent the identical amount on behalf of her husband’s campaign. There was nothing the least bit illegal about any of this. But it’s doubtful California has ever seen a more obvious example of a local party laundering money on behalf of a candidate and his chief donor. Of course, the party could

not, did not, use the money to do anything but market its candidate to registered Democrats. But that meant Fletcher himself did not have to send mailers or fund phone banking aimed at Democratic voters. Instead, he could concentrate on outreach to voters with no party preference or even to Republicans. One thing wrong with all this is that voters have no direct way to track where the money actually comes from. Sure, they know Gonzalez Fletcher and her husband are close allies. But they don’t know just whose money that was previously given to the Gonzalez Fletcher campaign account went to Fletcher. So no one can really be sure who he’s beholden to if and when he takes a seat on the county board. Which makes it difficult to track his motives in votes on development and other key issues. That’s the trouble with the entire current state campaign funding system. And it seems legislators want to keep the current opaque system in place indefinitely. About a year ago, they killed a bill making gifts to political parties subject to the same limits imposed on donations to candidates. Today’s disgraceful and easily exploited system is a major legacy of former Democratic Gov. Gray Davis, recalled in 2003 partly because of his own questionable fund-raising practices. If it remains in place, it will be because of ignorance or indifference by California voters, who could employ a ballot initiative to change the system anytime they like.

Gun PAC makes $10,000 challenge By Bianca Kaplanek

FOR THE SECOND straight year, RSF resident CoCo Vandeweghe led the San Diego Aviators to a World TeamTennis win over the Orange County Breakers. Courtesy photo

Vandeweghe keys Aviators win CARLSBAD — CoCo Vandeweghe, an Australian Open and U.S. Open singles semifinalist in 2017, signed with the San Diego Aviators for a homematch appearance during the 2018 World TeamTennis season. The 26-year-old Rancho Santa Fe resident, currently ranked No. 19 in the WTA singles rankings, played for the Aviators July 23 against the Orange County Breakers at the Omni La Costa Resort & Spa. She won both singles and doubles sets as the San Diego Aviators earned a 22-19 victory over the Breakers. Vandeweghe finished 2017 with a career-high

singles ranking of No. 10 in the world. In addition to winning two career WTA singles titles, she has represented the United States in Fed Cup and the Olympics. She is also a two-time Wimbledon singles quarterfinalist. This marked the second straight year Vandeweghe played a World TeamTennis match with the Aviators. Last year, she scored impressive wins in women’s singles, women’s doubles and mixed doubles to lead San Diego to a thrilling 22-19 home victory over Orange County.

next year include prepaid parking to decrease backups at the entrance, using city eblasts to let residents know when highly attended events are scheduled. Mueller said there are also plans to work with Surf Cup so a major soccer tournament isn’t scheduled during the last week of the fair. In the long term, she added, in 2023 the California Coastal Commission will discuss whether an additional third of the east overflow lot should be restored to wetlands, eliminating 1,450 more spaces, or the ability to park 2,900 cars daily during the fair. “Another loss of parking would be absolutely detrimental,” she said. “We do care about the issue and we’re listening and we’d love to find solutions. “It’s not just a single entity’s role,” Mueller added. “It’s all of our role and it’s something that we have to work on collectively as a community because we are all part of the same community. … We’re all on the same team in this.” Del Mar Mayor Dwight Worden agreed. “It was frustrating to a lot of people,” he said. “We’re never going to make the traffic totally disappear, but I think there are ways we can collectively improve it.”


“We don’t want people to experience horrible traffic,” she said. “So, it’s an important issue to everyone. … We take it very seriously.” Mueller said a traffic plan is approved annually by a registered state traffic engineer and the cities of Del Mar and San Diego. Personnel are trained and state certified. There is also daily oversight and a centralized dispatch center to address immediate communications with first responders. A representative from the Sheriff’s Department said a plan is in place to create an opening that allows an ambulance, fire truck or law enforcement vehicle to get in and out. “We have it planned out,” he said. “We don’t want to have somebody expire because of our lack of preparation and planning.” To address traffic congestion, promotions such as discounted or free admission aren’t offered during the last week of the fair. Use of public transportation is also promoted but unfortunately, Mueller said, ridership is down. “We are open to ideas to incentivize people to use public transit,” she added. Possible solutions for

DEL MAR — A local political action committee is challenging anyone who claims laws are being broken during gun shows at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. If anyone can show proof that an assault weapon or machine gun was purchased illegally, or without the buyer being subject to a background check or 10-day waiting period, San Diego County Gun Owners will donate $10,000 to the person’s charity of choice, Michael Schwartz, the organization’s executive director, said at a July 13 press conference at Gunfire Tactical in San Diego. The offer is also valid with evidence that someone younger than 18 was able to buy a firearm or that weapons were bought or sold in the parking lot or not through a federally licensed dealer. “The fact is, every time the gun show comes to town, (gun show opponents) march out a bunch of tired, old misinformation that’s not true,” Schwartz said. “We decided that this time, rather than go behind them and educating the press and educating the public about the misinformation, that we wanted to get out in front of it and put our money where our mouth is.” Schwartz said any attempt to encourage, facilitate or take part in unlawful activity to falsify proof is prohibited. “We know that they’re not going to be successful in their efforts,” he said, adding that anyone who tries and fails to show such proof must pledge to join San Diego County Gun Owners for an educational day about the proper and safe use of firearms. Also speaking at the event, attended by about a dozen gun-show advocates, was Sheri Graham, who described herself as “a mother, volunteer, certified range safety officer and a member of a ladies shooting league.” “We attend the gun show as a family and have met up socially with several ladies from our group, and their mates, to explore the wide variety of items for sale,” including clothing, cleaning supplies and a safe “to ensure that my firearm is stored safely and securely,” she said. “I am 100 percent against gun violence and fully understand that banning the gun show will not stop bad people any more than banning alcohol at the racetrack and KAABOO would end drunk driving in our town,” Graham added. Her 12-year-old son said he loves going to the shows and enjoys shooting at the range. He also said he has never felt unsafe at school, where some of the nationwide mass shootings have taken place recently. Schwartz said he initially planned to make the statement at the fairgrounds, where his group is a vendor and was setting up for the weekend gun show. After talking to two

staff members, he said, the state-owned facility made “demands that are impossible to meet.” “I knew that this challenge would be interesting to the press … so I called (the fairgrounds) and sent them an email on Monday and said we were going to make this challenge,” Schwartz said. “They basically fell apart and said we couldn’t do that. “They said we’re going to need money for insurance and security,” he added. “It became really obvious that they were trying to block us from being able to have this statement to the press. … We were told by staff that these additional demands are because the content is ‘gun stuff.’” “Of course, it’s not true,” fairgrounds General Manager Tim Fennell wrote in an email. “Our media (department) was never contacted. … None of my team had been contacted. “When we were finally contacted by Michael Schwartz, it was explained that Friday the 13th would not be available as the fairgrounds was not open to the public due to the transition from the fair to the race meet (and) setup for the weekend’s events would also be taking place,” he added. “It was also explained that a press conference is an event and would require a contract … and given the nature of the topic, safety and security would be a consideration,” Fennell stated. “SDCGO needs to go through our sales and event department like everyone else who wishes to hold an event on the fairgrounds.” Crossroads of the West holds five gun shows per year at the fairgrounds. The most recent, on July 14-15, included a new element — metal detectors at the entrance, which Schwartz said was an effort to “harass attendees.” Traci Olcott, Crossroads vice president who runs the shows, said she isn’t quite sure who made the request or why but the devices weren’t a deterrent.

“At every gun show people know they have to declare their weapons at the door,” she said. “That’s nothing new for them to have to show them to security personnel.” Olcott was scheduled to speak at the challenge announcement but said her attorney asked her not to participate in any event not directly related to the fairgrounds. She said those who oppose her event have a right to express their opinions. “Their voices count, too” she said. “But we need to find a way to work together to address gun violence. Gun shows don’t promote that. And people who attend them are regular people. Our hobby is just different than theirs.” Crossroads is contract-

ed for two more shows this year at the fairgrounds. The board of directors that governs the facility is scheduled to discuss the event and contract renewal at the Sept. 11 meeting. Board members asked staff to provide an analysis regarding the First Amendment rights of free speech and assembly implicated by the gun shows and the current state of litigation regarding gun shows in California, whether an agricultural district can impose restrictions that exceed state law requirements for gun shows, such as limiting their frequency or increasing the age limit for attendees, and if other agricultural districts and public fairgrounds have set restrictions on the events and, if so, what the results were.

He also pointed out that the pharmacy would offer a state-of-the-art visual layout, which will be aligned with state regulations for heightened security. A better visual floorplan will offer pharmacists a clear view of activities including more enhanced medication supervision. The square footage will be divided in half, offering 2,233 square

feet for the pharmacy, and the remainder for general retail, which will include ice cream, candy and other items. “They are also going to have a nice patio out front with tables and chairs, so folks can sit there and wait for their prescription,” he said. Farrar said parking will be rooftop with 12 to 14 spots with additional parking at the street level. The current pharmacy offers four parking spots. “The new pharmacy will resolve the parking issue,” he said. Rancho Santa Fe Association Manager Christy Whalen described the Rancho Santa Fe Phar-

We believe it will add to the charm of our Village.” As far as a construction timeline, Farrar estimated it would take about eight months to a year to create a building of that size. “Again, this is a big guess,” Farrar said.

item that will need approval at the Association — and it does not require a hearing. “They (the pharmacy) will need to submit a construction management plan for the Association,” Farrar said. “Basically, we work with them on that, and this is to review any potential construction impact such as traffic or if they have to close a lane let’s say for a couple of hours — it’s really just kind of a management plan in terms of their construction.” The original application date for the pharmacy was August 2016. The new pharmacy will replace the existing pharmacy, which is more than 60 years old.

JORDYN JEROTZ, 8, shows off her hitting ability on an Encinitas baseball field recently. Jerotz took third place in her age division at the “Pitch, Hit and Run” competition during Major League Baseball’s All-Star Week at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C, last month. Photo by Shana Thompson

Local girl 3rd in national MLB contest By Aaron Burgin

ENCINITAS — When 8-year-old Jordyn Jerotz attended a local “Pitch, Hit and Run” competition May 6 at Ashley Falls Park in Del Mar, she figured it would be a fun day of baseball, her favorite sport. Then, she won the competition, and was invited to a sectional event at the same park. Then, she won that, and was invited to the Padres regional championship event at Petco Park. And then she won that, and got the biggest news of her young life to date: Jordyn would compete against the other regional winners at Nationals Park during Major League Baseball’s AllStar Weekend. “It’s exciting,” Jordyn said with a shy giggle. Like most 8-year-olds, she’s bashful, but the excitement in her voice was obvious. “I’ve been practicing a lot.” Jordyn said she has been playing softball for two years. Her favorite part: “Pitching and hitting,” she said. Her favorite player is Padres star Eric Hosmer, who she met during the re-

gional finals of the competition which were held at Petco Park. She also loves to play soccer and hang out with family and friends. The “Pitch, Hit, Run” competition is baseball’s answer to football’s punt, pass and kick contest. For the pitching segment of the competition, participants must pitch to a target six times and are given 75 points for each time they hit the “strike zone” target. In the hitting competition, participants hit a ball off of a tee and are scored by how far they hit it in a straight line. Finally, for running, participants are timed by how fast they run around the base path. Jordyn’s mother and father, Sarah and Jon Jerotz, said they took Sarah and her 9-year-old brother Jake, who is also an avid baseball fan, to the competition for fun. When Jordyn won her age group after the local competition, they started to take it a little more seriously. They bought her a tee so she could work on hitting off a tee. They made makeshift targets to help her with her throwing. And they took her to parks so she could run around the bases. Once she found out that she was going to participate in the championship event, Jordyn took her work ethic to another level “I am extremely proud of her, I am going to tell you, once she found out she was going, her commitment to practicing has been incredible,” Sarah Jerotz said. “That is what makes me proud.” In order to advance to the championships, organizers took Jordyn’s scores and compared them to the other regional winners across the country. The top three scores in each division age group out of all 30 MLB Team Championships advanced to the National Finals. At the July 16 event,

Jordyn would have had the highest scores of her peers, if but for one tiny snafu: she didn’t touch home plate in the base running portion, which led to a deduction that knocked her into third place. But for she and the family, winning or losing didn’t matter. She had the experience of a lifetime. “It’s OK!” Sarah Jerotz said. “She had a blast in D.C.” Jordyn agreed. “It feels great, because I get to go on a professional field, and not a lot of kids get to do that,” Jordyn said.

old that full-body massage. Snuff out the aromatherapy. Keep your relaxation tapes and cancel the psych appointment. All I need for complete relaxation and renewal is a little time with my sorority sisters. These are women I have known for more than four decades. There is no need for pretense or to impress anyone. Not only have I known them more than half my life, but we knew each other when. We shared our “salad days” as Shakespeare so perfectly named them. Gathering with them is group therapy at its finest. These women know me in a way no others do. This summer, they had been providing enormous moral support throughout a life crisis, but that wasn’t enough. Two of the dearest ones decided they needed to make that miserable drive down from Los Ange-

les on a Friday and kidnap me for a night away. It was the perfect remedy. I can’t remember when I have felt so loved. We laughed our way through college, and laughter sustains us still. My sides hurt. My makeup is smeared. I was reminded that we became and have remained chums because we sense humor in the same way, in the same places. Actually, we sense humor pretty much everywhere. We laughed loudly, teased, used old nicknames and told stories on each other and ourselves. We all went home feeling uplifted. Calling up the ancient tradition of women, we also shared wisdom. It was the age-old art of keeping our world on its proper course and finding solutions when you thought there were none. There was so much life experience and comfort there, I could lay my burden down for a while, and found it far lighter when shouldered again. We talked about life and children and men in tight jeans. We talked about books and how to breathe. We discussed education and supermarkets and menopause. Did I also

mention that we also ate all our favorite foods until we could hardly wiggle? Every woman knows you cannot solve the world’s problems on an empty stomach. A good wine often helps, as well. We examined our hearts with great care, each scrutinizing the others to see if all was well. If a wound was found or confessed, we talked until it was healed. When a tender spot was detected, they soothed and strengthened. If small victories were at hand, we offered that sweet praise which can be gotten nowhere else. We were purged and then filled up again. And then we laughed some more. The hilarity was buoyed even higher by the knowledge that when we were 18, or even 25, we might have been disdainful of this crowd of silly women sitting there laughing until they fell over. What can you possibly have to laugh about when you are over 60? Everything. Absolutely everything. Jean Gillette is a freelance writer who is renewed, restored and maybe just a teensy bit hung-over.

Mount Rushmore is a stunning site hit the road e’louise ondash


inally. There they are — George, Thomas, Theodore and Abraham — the four U.S. presidents that sculptor Gutzon Borglum considered worthy of memorializing in the granite of Mount Rushmore. He chose presidents Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt and Lincoln in the 1920s because he believed their administrations represented the most important events in the history of the United States. Earlier low clouds and rain here in the Black Hills of South Dakota blocked the monument during our two previous attempts to see it, but this third time appears to be a charm. The clouds have lifted and we are treated to the stunning site of the four presidential countenances that Borglum hoped would “show posterity what manner of men they were” and “endure until the wind and the rain alone shall wear them away.” Seventy-plus years and the faces are still staring into the air above us; likely

will for many centuries to come. Unfortunately, granite carvings generally outlast mortals. After working for 14 years on the mountain, Borglum died in March 1941. His son, Lincoln, took over and completed what is now Mount Rushmore National Memorial seven months later. Now 3 million visitors a year come from all points on the globe to see the enormous, almost unreal visages. Even from the Grand View Terrace we can’t quite be sure that they aren’t a giant backdrop, so we head for the Presidential Trail to get an up-close-and-personal look at the solemn stone faces. We round a corner and suddenly we are looking right up George Washington’s nose. It is here that we fully appreciate just how large the presidential heads are. Each is about 60 feet high, and as I examine the corners, crevices and curves, I remember that 90 percent of these faces were sculpted by dynamite. Borglum, also one of several sculptors who carved the Confederate figures on Stone Mountain in Georgia, had perfected the art of placing sticks of dynamite so that each blast created the desired shapes and contours of the heads and shoulders. Typically, work-

ers would labor all morning drilling holes to place the dynamite, then blast during lunchtime. A second round of placement began after lunch, and blasting took place at the end of the day.

before the grand viewing because you’ll have a greater appreciation for what it took to create the memorial. The story told in an excellent film featuring old photos and newsreels. Another hint: Go midday or late afternoon. The line to get into the memorial in the morning can be miles long, especially in the summer. Going later means you can catch the Evening Lighting Ceremony from

Sculptors would then follow with chisels and hammers to create the finer details. There is always the chance that, when anticipating seeing what is billed as grandiose, it will disappoint. Some films have depicted visits to Mount Rushmore as ho-hum moments, perhaps for comedy’s sake. But take the trail for a closer look at this sculpted wonder and I promise you’ll be impressed.

Part 3: The wineries of Napa and Sonoma — the last dance taste of wine frank mangio


or the last couple of columns, Taste of Wine has been sharing our special experiences in Napa Valley. In Part 3, we finalize this wine journey with visits to Rombauer and Silver Oak in Napa, then over to Sonoma for a reunion with Jordan Vineyard and Winery. Napa was California’s first official wine country (AVA) named in 1981. It’s hard to imagine the area is only 30 miles long by 5 miles wide with only two main roads and is home to well more than 400 wineries. It begins with a bay in the south, (San Pablo), and ends with a volcano in the north. (Mt. St. Helena) Rombauer Vineyards is the one in the forest without another winery in sight, a perfect scenario for the late Korner Rombauer, patriarch of the colorful German family that founded it in 1982. Here you will find old-world gardens with stylish sculpture and a meandering underground cave in a double horseshoe configuration. The lineup of wines is traditional, predictably

great and with rich juicy acidity. The Rombauer 2016 Sauvignon Blanc is a recent addition and is becoming a summer favorite ($24). Nectarine and passion fruit sublimely weave their way throughout the bottle. The Rombauer 2015 Carneros Chardonnay ($36) has a history of intense fruit flavors. I love the oak! It’s all like fresh apple pie. Alan Cannon of Visitor Education and I spoke about the current 2015 Merlot ($35). “It’s no longer on life support, like 10 or so years ago when ‘Sideways’ crushed it,” he said. “We make a big Merlot and it recently sold out. Our 2015 spends a lot of time on the vine.” See more at Rombauer.com. NEXT UP — SILVER OAK

At the Oakville Crossroad, just west of the Silverado Trail sits Silver Oak, the Grand Dame of upscale Cabernets in Napa Valley, with a second location in Alexander Valley in Sonoma. This is a rarity that a high-end Cabernet Sauvignon should do well in both wine countries. The newest release is the 2014 Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cab ($80). This is a lush, full signature Silver Oak with opulent tannins and excellent acidity. The finish is long with lots of improvement as the wine ages. Best serving tem-

perature, as I always preach on powerful reds, is 60 degrees. The Napa Valley version is the 2013 ($120), an assertively silky structure with spice on the palate. Get set for flavors of sage and blackberry. Tom Walsh, VIP tour manager, went back in time to the founding of Silver Oak by Ray Duncan and Justin Meyer in 1972. Today the Duncan family operates the two wineries with the model that “Life is a Cabernet.” Silver Oak has a leading edge approach, farming more than 400 acres in Napa and

that when traveling all over the world on animal welfare issues, Helen Woodward Animal Center is recognized internationally. “I commend you and respect you even more for supporting this (Helen Woodward Animal Center) local group,” Derek said. “I think that’s where the best work gets done.” Derek said she didn’t set out to be an activist. But in both her career and travels, it somehow naturally evolved. She said she tends to be pragmatic in animal welfare issues. She needs to understand the problem first, and then seeks a solution. “I’ve met the most incredible people who are brave, courageous, and intelligent — they do great work,” Derek said. “And I am proud to support them as I am here tonight with everything that you’re doing.” During the evening, guests learned Derek recently launched a shampoo and conditioner pet product line for dogs named, “Bo Derek Pet Care.” A percentage of the proceeds go toward the care of retired military working dogs. The July 19 soiree was invitation-only and in attendance were high-level Helen Woodward Animal Center donors. Also there covering the event was Mark Mathis of KUSI News. Previous recipients of the Humane Award include Diane Keaton, Betty White, Carrie Ann Inaba, Kristen Bell, Jackson Galaxy, Tippi Hedren and Linda Blair.

Pet of the Week Shore is a 4-year-old Labrador retriever-Australian shepherd blend who comes to Helen Woodward Animal Center from the Lone Star State. Her move out west was part of Helen Woodward Animal Center’s ongoing efforts to find forever homes for animals in the Houston area affected by Hurricane Harvey. Shore is a devoted 53-pound pup who is always up for a game of fetch. Her adoption fee is $331. She has been altered and is up-to-date on all of her vaccinations. As with all pets adopted from HWAC, she is micro-chipped for identification. Helen Woodward Animal Center is at 6523 Helen Woodward Way, Rancho Santa Fe. Kennels are open daily Mon-

the Alexander Valley. Walsh underlined that in the Napa Valley, “the focus is the wine and what it is all about. Our agricultural ordinances are tough with high environmental considerations for land use. Here at Silver Oak, we are LEED-certified for preservation of this land with little or no toxic effect on the vines.” Walsh concluded his presentation with an “under the table” tasting of a 2007 Silver Oak Napa Cabernet that I could easily describe as “pure gold.” Visit at silveroak.com.

Sonoma, with its vibrant resurgent Healdsburg, a city with a growing tasting room population, is a large, rangy swath of land, more than twice as big as its Napa Valley sister. Easily the most stunning property in Sonoma is the Jordan Vineyard and Winery on Alexander Valley Road north of Healdsburg. The approach is clearly that of a vintage French Chateau in the classic sense, established by Tom Jordan in 1972 after many visits to his favorite wine country, Bordeaux, in the southwest of France. The estate, the gardens, the hilltops, all on 1,500 acres, are a sight to behold, now owned and operated by John Jordan. We met with Director of Communications Lisa Mattson who

treated us to a special Jordan Champagne tasting now in the family’s offerings and made in the Loire Valley by a noted independent French family. She poured a Grand Cru based Chardonnay and a Pinot Noir, classic Champagne varietals, in a lovely side garden that showcased a bronze statue of Bacchus, the Wine God, a replica of Tatti’s 1512 original in the National Museum of Florence. The winery is presenting a series of high end upscale events, including Fall vineyard hikes, Anniversary promotions every month to celebrate the 10th year of a premier Loyalty program, Sunset Suppers with mountain vista views, and Chateau Dinners hosted on the terrace. Rob Davis is the winemaker at Jordan “for 10-plus years” and he knows every square foot of these vines. “There is artistry in each vintage,” he asserts. “The newest releases are the 2014 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon ($56) and the 2016 Chardonnay ($33). The 2014 Cab is the third in a string of simply incredible vintages. 2012, 2013 and 2014 may be the best trio in a century. I think the fruit is stunning with layers of blackberry, black cherry and cassis. We increased our French oak use to refine and lengthen the finish of our

wine. Our goal is to make every vintage better than the last one,” Davis declared. The full story can be found at jordanwinery.com. WINE BYTES

best detailers in the U.S was phenomenal,” he said. “Doing this for my kids, as well as preserving national history, makes it all worthwhile.” Until 2016, the plane lived outdoors on the tarmac, exposed to the elements, requiring a robust annual cleaning, polishing and protection for its paint and aluminum. Since then it has found a home under the museum’s new open-air Airpark Pavilion. Although it is mostly protected from the elements, it is still exposed to the area’s damp climate and extreme temperatures, requiring a rigorous cleaning, polishing and application of a paint sealant to protect it from year to year, he explained. Of course, master detailer Doyle agreed the chance to clean such a plane is truly a unique experience. “Cleaning something as big as a jet airplane has its challenges, but when you are cleaning aircraft valued at hundreds of millions of dollars and that have such historical significance, it requires unique skills and knowledge of paint and bright work,” he said prior to this year’s event. “The first time I laid eyes on Air Force One 15 years ago, I doubted whether it could be saved — that is how challenging the project was; however, I see what Jose has done and I know what he can do. He is one of the best.” And even though the job was a weeklong project, Junco said he didn’t mind making the commitment on a voluntary, pro bono basis. “When you see the plane, the feeling is unexplainable,” he said. “Just the ability to help preserve a national treasure is amazing, the plane is priceless. It is a dream come true for me. I am father to two wonderful kids and I see it like the opportunity to preserve this plane for future generations. My kids can see it shining in the sun and one day say truthfully that their dad helped keep it looking that way.” As mentioned, the detailers also helped in preserving the museum’s newest acquisition the Midnight Express. Built in 1960, she was a nuclear-armed Cold War platform used extensively during the Vietnam War, and active during Operation Linebacker II in December 1972, which led to the release of 591 prisoners of war in 1973.

How it all began Detailing such magnificent birds didn’t happen overnight for anybody, including Doyle. In fact, for more than a decade, Doyle and a growing team of detailers from around the country have been restoring, maintaining and preserving the first presidential jet Air Force One, for Seattle’s Museum of Flight. Known as SAM (Special Air Missions) 970, the plane was a flying Oval Office for four U.S. Presidents including Eisenhower, Kennedy,

Johnson and Nixon. The Boeing 707-120 also entertained many international VIPs such as Nikita Khrushchev and Henry Kissinger. It began with a phone call in 2002 from a Bush administration official asking Renny to bring a team to Seattle’s Museum of Flight to clean and attempt to restore the deteriorating paint on the retired jet. The restoration project started in 2003 with Renny and a small staff. In 2007, Renny opened the project to a team of about 20 experienced detailers who had been through his training. By 2010, the team had grown into a highly specialized and selective team of about 35. The 2018 15th anniversary Air Force One Detailing Team was 65 members.

Up close While many can only dream of seeing such a plane up-close, Junco said working on it is a rare treat. “Walking up to AFO makes it a reality not just something you envision yourself doing,” he said. “Polishing its paint and bright work (aluminum) you get a feeling like a personal attachment. No weird vibes at all, just positive vibes and an awesome working environment. We get a chance to walk inside AFO, and when you look at the seats and the interior, you can see how technology has advanced. It’s very cool to see.” Don’t kid yourself, cleaning airplanes is grueling work, and you need to be fit. “It is definitely grueling, I have to get ready weeks in advance with tools and materials to take to tackle this job; and the weather is also a challenge,” he said. “You must be in good physical condition all the time. Slinging a power buffer is certainly not for people with a weak back or weak arms, but it will help build up arm strength.” “There is a lot of overhead buffing, which is especially hard since you have to maintain a steady pressure on the buffer at the same time you are holding it up overhead. We also must ride

a lift and sometimes hang out over the railing with a safety harness to polish the top of the plane.” As for the bomber and other planes they restored over the week they completed polishing the B-29 Super Fortress, a World War II bomber that the team began restoring in 2011; cleaned and polished the first-ever Boeing “Jumbo Jet 747; polished the supersonic Concorde Alpha Golf, which they have been working on since 2014; and numerous other priceless aircraft on exhibit at the Museum of Flight. “The Concorde is a challenge because of its size, but the team has been working on the rest of the planes over the past several years and most of them are in better shape than in the past and we just need to give them their annual cleaning, polish, and sealant,” Junco said. “The World War II B29 bomber is solid aluminum, and cleaning metal is dirty work, even if it has only been a year.”

Back to earth When Junco returned from Seattle it was back to reality, and that was running his mobile detailing business in Encinitas, that services Solana Beach, Cardiff-by-the-Sea, Rancho Santa Fe, Del Mar, Carlsbad and Oceanside. “My training with Detailing Success and the Detailing International Association, makes auto detailing and paint correction my specialty. But it is also because of my affiliation with the IDA and Renny Doyle, that I’ve been select-

ed for such iconic projects as Air Force One,” he said. Humbled to be part of such a project for a second year makes him smile but he doesn’t consider himself one of the superstars in the detailing arena. “I don’t consider myself a superstar, but as a team, we are a little like rock stars of the detailing industry,” he said. “Detailing priceless museum aircraft is not something I foresaw myself doing when I got into detailing! Now I have the honor of working shoulder-to-shoulder with some of the best

detailers on the most elite project in the detailing.” As for the future, Junco plans to continue running his four-year-old High Performance Auto Detail detailing business that he started from scratch after getting hooked on detailing while working at a San Diego dealership. “We’re not just about shining cars, but we also want to educate the customer about high-end detailing and paint correction,” he said. “I really love what I do and going to Seattle is like the ultimate reward.”

It doesn’t matter the age, making music enriches lives By Claudia Piepenburg

ENCINITAS — Alyssa, who recently turned 9, is learning to play the harmonica; between chords she likes to throw in a bit of beatboxing. Ali, who’s 10, wants to play the accordion; it’s her heritage, her grandfather plays. And 68-yearold Hugh is taking piano lessons because as he says, “I go to the gym to exercise my body, and I also want to exercise my mind.” The three are among more than 450 students at Leading Note Studios in Encinitas, where children and adults learn to play virtually all instruments from piano to saxophone, take voice and songwriting lessons, attend summer music camps, participate in recitals and even record in the recording studio. Opened 10 years ago by Berklee College of Music graduate Camille Hastings, Leading Note Studios provides a musical education experience that in-home lessons can’t. “There are no recitals when you’re taking lessons at home,” Hastings explained. “We also offer free Saturday workshops, and we’re constantly putting duets and trios together. A student may be playing the piano in one room and the teacher might hear someone playing drums in another room and will suggest that they get together to play. You seldom have to play by yourself here.” Music camps are held

TO CELEBRATE THE start of their 10th year in business, Leading Note Studios will host an open house at their location in Encinitas from noon to 3 p.m. on Aug. 5. Students will perform throughout the open house, and visitors can tour the studio, at 2146 Encinitas Boulevard. Courtesy photo

every week in the summer except for the week of July 4. In most cases, camp attendees need no prior experience in playing an instrument. The camps feature instruction in pop, blues and jazz; audio engineering; introduction to music; movie music; voice camp; and even a summer musical performance where students learn how to produce and perform in a musical. Lessons are semi-pri-

vate or private. Private sessions are 30, 45 or 60 minutes long; the semi-private lessons, for three students, are one hour. All 25 are highly qualified—they must either have a degree in music or have performed professionally. A few are still in college, and some are on their way there, like Olivia who’s played piano since sixth grade and performs in musicals. She heads to Colum-

bia University in August, where she’ll major in political science and minor in jazz studies. Hastings said that not every student ends up having a career in music. “The prime age to take classes is 5 to 13. Once kids get in high school, homework and sports take up much of their time.” But she pointed out that once a child has taken music lessons, he or she often will relieve stress

or will take a break from studying, by playing an instrument. “Music stays with them for the rest of their lives.” A strong advocate for learning music at any age, Hastings has a favorite saying: “Every retirement home has a piano, but not one has a soccer team.” She believes that music is an integral part of everyone’s life. From the toddler beating out a rhythm with

a spoon on his highchair to the songs sung at memorials, music makes our world a better place. Leading Note Studios celebrates its 10th anniversary on Sunday, Aug. 5. Join in the festivities from noon to 3 p.m. Students will perform all day and attendees can tour the studio. For more information on Leading Note Studios, visit the website: www.

49th District race: Financial reports shed light on Levin, Harkey fundraising By Jill Castellano inewsource

REGION — It’s been almost two months since the June 5 primary, and the campaign season is picking back up for the candidates in San Diego County’s five congressional races. Fundraising in some of those contests has already reached millions of dollars. The race to replace nine-term Rep. Darrell Issa, the Vista Republican who decided not to run for re-election in the 49th District, is considered one of the most competitive races in the country. Republican Diane Harkey finished first in the primary with 25.5 percent of the vote, and Democrat Mike Levin finished second with 17.5 percent. Candidates for Congress filed their latest financial reports on July 15. Here are some key takeaways in the 49th District from those filings. California’s 49th Congressional District stretches from Dana Point to Del Mar. Democrats are hoping to flip the seat in the November election to bring them one step closer to a majority in the House, and donors from around the country have been taking notice. Levin, an environmental attorney from San Juan

Capistrano, edged out thirdplace finisher Sara Jacobs, a Democrat from Del Mar who was reluctant to admit defeat until every vote was counted. Even so, Jacobs donated $2,700 to Levin’s campaign on June 16. Since making it through the primary, Levin also has received donations from high-profile Democratic politicians. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi gave him $4,000, Virginia Rep. Don Beyer gave $2,000 and New York Rep. Steny Hoyer gave $2,000. Those aren’t the only people hoping for a Levin victory. Billionaire philanthropist Tom Steyer, who recently made the news for funding a campaign to impeach President Donald Trump, contributed $2,700 to Levin. And Steve Jobs’ widow, Laurene Powell Jobs, donated $5,400. In the 16-candidate primary race, donations from progressive political action committees were split among the Democratic candidates, but they’ve now coalesced around Levin. PACs donating to Levin since the election include PAC to the Future, AMERIPAC and the CHC Bold PAC. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee donated $5,000 to Levin’s campaign for the general election, though it

didn’t fund him in the primary. Levin is also getting support from individual donors around the country who are contributing to his campaign through a platform called ActBlue. The tool helps Democratic candidates fundraise. ActBlue has raised more than $2.4 billion for Democrats since 2004. Harkey, a member of the state Board of Equalization from Dana Point, is also loading up on money from PACs. A PAC run by Darrell Issa donated $5,000 to her on June 28, and the Koch Industries Inc. PAC also gave her $5,000 that same day. She has received thousands more in PAC money from the National Automobile Dealers Association, the Occidental Petroleum Corp., the Cooperative of American Physicians PAC and others. Harkey used some of her cash on June 28, when she spent $500 on In-N-Out Burger catering. inewsource is an independent, investigative journalism nonprofit supported by foundations, philanthropists and readers like you.

Annual Gala in the Garden set to celebrate Julian Duval ENCINITAS — When he came on board at San Diego Botanic Garden, he was told the garden might have to shut its doors in two years. Now 24 years later, President and CEO Julian Duval is set to celebrate his final gala with the little garden that could. “When I first got here in 1995, the future of the garden was uncertain,” he said. But the self-proclaimed “nature nut” knew that he had stumbled upon something amazing, something that was necessary. “We have an intrinsic need for nature,” he said. “And this is the place for that.” Duval has been involved with each annual Gala in the Garden. But this year’s event, the 19th, holds a bit more meaning than previous galas. This will be his last gala as president and CEO, and he is being honored with the Paul Ecke Jr. Award. “This gala is particularly special for me,” he said. “I’ve been here for each of them. And I’m being given this award that so many wonderful people before me have had bestowed upon them. I’m honored.” Carolyn Zollars, director of development shared,

“We are delighted the selection committee has chosen Julian Duval for the 2018 Paul Ecke Jr. Award, being presented at this year’s Gala in the Garden! This award, named for the patriarch of the Encinitas Poinsettia Ecke family, has been given out since the first Gala was held nearly 20 years ago. It is presented to a person who has made a significant contribution to horticulture regionally. The growth and accomplishments at San Diego Botanic Garden made during Julian’s tenure as president and CEO have led to this well-deserved honor as he prepares to head into retirement in early 2019.” Duval’s career has been the stuff young kids dream about. He holds a degree in wildlife management and had gigs at a number of zoos including two major ones in the Chicago area where he grew up. A stint in the Peace Corps took him to the Dominican Republic where he helped establish the National Zoo of Santa Domingo. He also helped open a new zoo for a private owner in Guatemala. After this, Duval spent 15 years as VP of zoological and botanical col-

lections at the Indianapolis Zoo. “I’m one of those kids who didn’t grow up, in a sense,” he said. “I never traded in my lightning bug bottle for a baseball glove. I got a bigger and bigger bug collecting bottle!” Duval said he has always known that he would have a career rooted in his love for all things nature. “I always knew what I wanted to do, there was no question,” he said. “I’ve been blessed.” Duval landed in Encinitas by way of his membership in the American Bamboo Society. “The society started here in 1979,” he said of what was then known as Quail Botanical Garden. “I didn’t actually know where Encinitas was other than in Southern California. I heard the garden was looking for a director to help them make good on their promise to become self-supported. The love of my life, my wife Leslie, embraced the move here and we have enjoyed many happy years!” Never one to always be looking for the next best thing, Duval found a happy home in his nearly quarter of a century at San Diego Bo-

tanic Garden. “I have always had my dream job, no matter where I was,” he said. “I’ve always been in love with the jobs that I have. And I feel very privileged to have been involved with San Diego Botanic Garden.” Duval is looking forward to celebrating the garden and his time there at the upcoming Gala in the Garden. “It’s a wonderful event, everyone has a great time,” he said. “The best evidence is how many people

come back year after year. We have the benefit of being able to host our major fundraiser in this wonderful setting. You can walk around and graze from the 40-plus food providers. I like to say if you can’t find something you will enjoy, then you probably don’t eat!” The theme of this year’s gala is Inspiring the Nature Within Us, which is especially fitting to honor Duval. Guests will enjoy a lovely evening in nature while rais-

ing funds to help meet operational needs and provide funding for this year’s chosen project, which is a fund to advance programs in Duval’s areas of interest — horticulture and conservation. Fine wine, craft beer, signature cocktails, food from local restaurants and five bands can be found throughout the gardens during the gala. Renowned floral designer and Gala Artistic Director René van Rems will once again lead a team of local floral designers to create lavish floral displays for the evening. It takes more than 10,000 stems to create these magnificent displays. “Mother nature is the best show in town,” Duval said. “And this is an amazing opportunity to see it.” This year’s Gala in the Garden will take place from 5 to 11 p.m. Sept. 8 at the San Diego Botanic Garden at 230 Quail Gardens Drive. For more information about Gala in the Garden and to buy tickets visit sdbgarden.org/gala.htm. For sponsorship opportunities, call (760) 436-3036, ext. 216. Tickets to the event are $225 per person.

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-of-the-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 den-

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 have quality dental care for their overall health and to improve their quality of life.” AT ADVANCED DENTISTRY we eliminate the need for seniors Dr. Mirkhan is a speto travel or to worry.

Infamous South Beach street artist Jonathan Crenshaw, 46, attracts a lot of attention in Miami among tourists, who watch him paint on a canvas -- using his feet. Crenshaw does not have arms and is homeless. Profiled in a local newspaper in 2011, Crenshaw told of a difficult childhood (he also claimed Gloria Estefan had given birth to 200 of his children). He landed in the headlines again after stabbing a Chicago man with a pair of scissors on July 10. According to the Miami Herald, Cesar Coronado, 22, told police he had approached Crenshaw to ask for directions, when Crenshaw jumped up and, using his feet, stabbed Coronado. Crenshaw's story is that as he lay on the pavement, Coronado punched him in the head -- so he stabbed him, tucked the scissors into his waistband and walked away. Police

Faith Pugh of Memphis, Tennessee, had a date to remember on July 14 with Kelton Griffin. Her casual acquaintance from high school "just out of the blue texted me and asked me to go out," Pugh told WREG-TV. They took her car and stopped at a gas station, where Griffin asked Pugh to go inside and buy him a cigar. But while she was inside, "He drove off. I came outside and my car was gone," Pugh said. Shortly, Pugh received a text from her godsister, telling her Griffin had just asked her out on a date. He picked up the godsister in Pugh's car and headed to a drive-in movie. "He didn't even have any money," Pugh said. "She actually paid their way to get in the drive-in just so I could get my car back." Pugh alerted the police to the car's location, and they arrested

On Jan. 25, 71-yearold Alan J. Abrahamson of Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, went for his regular predawn walk to Starbucks. What happened on the way stumped police investigators until March, reported The Washington Post, and on July 13 they made their findings public. Images from a surveillance camera show Abrahamson walking out of his community at 5:35 a.m. and about a half-hour later, the sound of a gunshot is heard. Just before 7 a.m., a dog found Abrahamson's body, lying near a walking path. Police found no weapon, no signs of a struggle; he still had his wallet and phone. Investigators initially worked the case as a homicide, but as they dug deeper into the man's computer searches and purchases over the past nine years, a theory developed: Abrahamson had tied a gun to a


It's time once again for minor league baseball promotion fun and games! This time, however, the Montgomery (Alabama) Biscuits managed to tick off a whole generation of baseball fans. The Biscuits announced Millennial Night on July 21, featuring participation ribbons just for showing up, a napping area, selfie stations and lots of avocados, reported Fox News. While some Twitter users thought

the promotion was insensitive, others were more philosophical. Dallas Godshall, 21, said, "More than targeting millennials, it's sort of targeting older generations who like to make fun of millennials." Pitcher Benton Ross weighed in: "If it's insensitive, maybe they should just have thicker skin." [Fox News, 7/20/2018] REVENGE, TEXAS-STYLE

The Austin American-Statesman reported that on June 17, RV park neighbors and longtime adversaries Ryan Felton Sauter, 39, and Keith Monroe got into a heated dispute about an undisclosed subject. Later that day, Monroe saw Sauter leaving Monroe's RV and asked him why he had gone in without permission, to which Sauter replied, "You'll see why." Going inside, Monroe soon spotted a 3-foot-long rattlesnake. "I freaked out," he said. He used a machete to kill the snake, which strangely was missing its rattles. Turns out Sauter


Tina Ballard, 56, of Okeechobee County, Florida, was arrested in North Carolina by Linville Land Harbor police on July 16 after fleeing there to "hide (her pet) monkey so that state officials could not take that monkey from her," assistant state attorney Ashley Albright told WPBF News. Ballard's troubles began in May, when the spider monkey, Spanky, jumped out of a shopping cart in an Okeechobee Home Depot and grabbed a cashier's shirt, "leaving red marks on the cashier's shoulder and back." In June, Fox News reported, another Home Depot employee spotted Spanky in the parking lot, having escaped Ballard's truck and dragging a leash. TURN TO ODD FILES ON 19
