Poll: RSF attorney tops GOP governor hopefuls

RSF resident’s horses 2 for 2 on closing day

Cox, though, lags far behind Democratic pair From wire reports

By Joe Naiman

DEL MAR — Rancho Santa Fe resident Michael House had horses in two Del Mar Thoroughbred Club races Nov. 26 and both won their competitions including 5-year-old gelding Hunt, who took first place in the Grade 2 Seabiscuit Handicap. Hunt and jockey Flavien Prat won the 1 1/16-mile turf race for horses 3 years old and upwards by overcoming a 1 1/2-length deficit entering the stretch and defeating second-place He Will by a nose. “He laid back,” House said. “Flavien rode him perfect.” Six horses contested the Seabiscuit Handicap. The horse Pee Wee Reese, who like Hunt is trained by Philip D’Amato, took the initial lead. After the first quarter-mile Hunt was in fourth, trailing Pee Wee Reese by three lengths and third-place Mr. Roary by one length. The horses maintained their order through the half-mile point, although after the first four furlongs Hunt only trailed Pee Wee Reese by three lengths and Mr. Roary by half a length. The positions were also unchanged three-quarters of a mile past the starting gate, when Hunt was 2 1/2 lengths in back of Pee Wee Reese and half a length behind Mr. Roary. During the next two furlongs Hunt passed Mr. Roary and Om. Hunt entered the stretch a length and a half in back of Pee Wee Reese, half a length in front of Om, and 2 1/2 lengths ahead of fourthplace He Will. “I think he was in the right spot,” D’Amato said of Hunt. Hunt and Prat overtook Pee Wee Reese (who was ridden by Joe Talamo) in the stretch, but He Will and jockey Mike Smith made their final charge and passed both Om and Pee Wee Reese. A photo finish determined that Hunt had crossed the finish line prior to He Will. Hunt had a winning time of 1:41.03. “We had a good trip and he made a nice move around the turn,” Prat said. The win was the third for Hunt in six starts this year, and all three of those wins were in Grade 2 stakes races at Del Mar. During the summer meet Hunt won the Eddie Read Stakes race July 22 and the Del Mar Handicap on Aug. 19. TURN TO HORSES ON 8

STATE — Rancho Santa Fe attorney and venture capitalist John Cox leads among Republican candidates for governor though his percentage of support is mired in the single digits, according to poll findings released last week. Cox was backed by 9 percent of likely voters polled by the Public Policy Institute of California, and Huntington Beach Assemblyman Travis Allen by 6 percent. More than half of those polled said they had never heard of Cox or Allen, underscoring the difficulties they face in dark-blue California. Cox, who has run for U.S. Senate and Congress in his native Illinois, describes himself as a moderate Republican in the mold of the late U.S. Rep. Jack Kemp. In 2014, he contributed $1 million to fund a ballot initiative campaign that would require legislators to wear the logos of their top corporate donors while speaking on behalf of a measure in the state assembly. Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom and former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, both Democrats, top the field in California's race for governor, and Sen. Dianne

Osuna Ranch joins National Register of Historic Places By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — It’s official. The Protective Covenant area of Rancho Santa Fe received word that the Osuna Ranch obtained its National Register of Historic Places — a title administered by the National Park Service branch of the Department of the Interior. This designation adds the Osuna Adobe to a national registry along with other sites that had an essential role in American history be it architec-

tural, historical or cultural. The Osuna Adobe was constructed in the early 1830s. Rancho Santa Fe Association horticulturist Caitlin Kreutz said a national historic designation is different than being designated a California landmark. It requires proof of meeting different requirements about periods of historical significance and how it relates to the entire state. TURN TO OSUNA ON 14

RANCHO SANTA FE — The Rancho Santa Fe Fire Protection District is again taking part in its longstanding holiday Toys for Tots collection drive. It is partnering with the U.S. Marine Corps in an effort to make this holiday a happy one for children in need. According to Kyle Carranza, an engineer at the Rancho Santa Fe Fire Protection District, each station received its collection box last week. The boxes are filling up one toy at a time with the goal of filling up multiple boxes. “We are very fortunate serving the community that we are in that we wind up collecting a lot of toys,” Carranza said. “Within two weeks of collecting, we will probably get a call from one of the stations requesting a pickup and a new box because they are overflowing.” Carranza said new, unwrapped toys for boys and girls under the age of 12 are needed. Gifts for teenagers are also welcomed. For Carranza, this time of the year is an opportunity to make a child’s holiday a better one.

“This is the season for giving and helping everyone out. If we can all be involved and help a child that would be great,” he said. “Happy holidays to everyone and stay safe out there.” Unwrapped gifts for the Toys for Tots Collection Drive can be dropped off at one of the following fire station locations: • Fire Station No. 1: 16936 El Fuego in Rancho Santa Fe • Fire Station No. 2:

Butterfly garden planted at school RANCHO SANTA FE — On Nov. 28, 100 fourthgrade students from R. Roger Rowe School got their hands dirty by planting

native California pollinator plants throughout their campus, bringing more life and color to their school days while providing food and resting areas for butterflies and other vital pollinators. It was a team effort: The Escondido Creek Conservancy facilitated the project, the California Native Plant Society provided the conservancy with a grant which paid for the plants, Greg Rubin from California’s Own Native Plant Landscape Design provided design guidance, Habitat West helped ready the holes, the plants came

charge of the planting. The conservancy is planting three pollinator gardens this fall. The first was at the Plaza De Arroyo in Escondido along Escondido Creek; Rowe school was the second and a later garden will be installed at the Elfin Forest Interpretive Center. The conservancy hopes to install additional pollinator gardens at other Escondido Creek watershed schools. Pollinators, which include butterflies, moths, and other insects, are in peril around the globe for a variety of reasons including habitat loss. By planting

113 native plants loved by pollinators, R Roger Rowe students were both thinking globally and acting locally. Some of the plant species included narrow-leafed milkweed, canyon sunflower and pozo blue sage. Getting students outdoors is essential to the conservancy’s mission. “Having the children plant the plants will make it more meaningful for them as they can both watch the plants grow and take pride when the butterflies and moths visit the flowers next spring,” said Hannah Walchek, conservation manager at the Conservancy. “With this hands-on approach, students are able to participate in the habitat restoration process and learn the value of native plants for local wildlife, all without leaving their school,” said Simon Breen, education manager of the conservancy.

Will top-two ‘jungle primary’ aid Feinstein? California Focus By Thomas D. Elias Strong irony is in the air as California heads into the hot political year of 2018, with an initiative to end the state’s “top two” primary election system in play just as top two, also known as the “jungle primary,” may be about to accomplish its central purpose. That aim was to allow voters in the minority party to influence elections and elect more moderate members of the larger party when their own party either has no candidate in a race or fields a sure loser. So it is today as moderate Democratic U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein bids for another six years in Washington, D.C., amid opposition from state Senate President Kevin de Leon and possibly others from the Democrats’ left wing. So far, no Republican has entered the race, and in past reelection efforts, Feinstein has trampled GOP opponents anyhow. This leads to two key questions to be answered in the next 11 months: Will the ‘jungle primary’ system so detested by Republicans and fringe party members help save Feinstein’s long career? And will she be the last to benefit from that system, which pits the top two primary election vote-getters for any office below the presidency against each other in the November runoff, regardless of party? Most likely, Feinstein next fall will share the ballot with the initiative seeking to return California to its previous primary system based on parties, with each party participating in the primary entitled to have a candidate in the runoff. Candidates and parties now must earn runoff slots with strong primary election performances. If top two is even partly responsible for a Feinstein win, she would be the most prominent case of that system fulfilling its aim. The Democratic left, which came within a hair of taking over the party’s state apparatus last fall, excoriates Feinstein because she once urged patience with President Trump, because she’s had Wall Street ties and has not been as shrill in opposing Trump as some younger senators, including California’s other senator, fellow Democrat Kamala Harris. (Harris endorsed Feinstein the day she announced for reelection.)

Ferret legalization proclamation needed By Pat Wright

This is an unusual request. Normally this is an issue for the Fish and Game Commission. And we’ve been trying for 30 years. After meeting every objection they placed in our path they finally said, “Yes we know ferrets are domestic, but they’re classified as wild. If we proceed with the legalization process, we’ll get sued by the “environmentalists.” It’s out of our hands — find a legislator to introduce a ferret legalization bill.” This is their way of moving the ball out of their court. “Find a legislator?!” They knew we’ve been trying to recruit a legislator since Gov. Schwarzenegger vetoed a ferret amnesty bill in 2004. How easy is it for an underfunded group to recruit a legislator? From Sen. Andy Vidak’s legislative director after we formally asked: After reviewing your proposal, along with the history of introductions and vetoes of similar bills and your recent ballot proposition attempt, our office has decided we will not be introducing this measure next year. To even get a response from Sen. Vidak’s office took a few hundred emails from ferret lovers. Legislators’ normal response is to ignore us. A fact that Assemblyman Marc Steinorth mentioned at a town hall meeting. He later said he was joking but that does seem to be the official Republican position – ignore California ferret lovers.

Ferrets are legal in 48 states, but California is not one of them. Photo by Mark Probst

We heard from multiple legislative directors they expect our annual appeal to find a legislative sponsor. They roll their eyes, they say no or they ignore us and expect it again the next year. What’s the big deal with ferrets? Certifiably domestic. Legal in 48 states. Never an issue of feral populations or attacks on wildlife. They’re harmless house pets. Yet it continues to be a misdemeanor in California. People can’t move here with their ferrets. You probably can’t get a security clearance or be a foster parent. I myself was denied a real estate license because of my ferret activism. This is clearly a case of when the door slam shuts, crawl through the window. That is what we are doing. When I asked the city of La Mesa for a proclamation, I felt it landed with a thud. Luckily on our City Council is Kristine Alessio, an activist with the Savannah cat community who has faced similar issues. We also had Councilman Bill Baber, who knew a ridiculous law when he saw it. Thanks to

them and the other two City Councilmembers, Guy McWhirter and Colin Parent, and our outstanding mayor, Mark Arapostathis, the city of La Mesa issued the first proclamation calling on the state Legislature to pass ferret legalization legislation. We have politicians with courage who stand up for the little guy. What a great feeling! All politics is local. And meeting City Council members at the grocery store or on my dog walks brings a connection. Meeting state legislators at official functions puts the little guy at a disadvantage. The ferret community of California is now looking to Encinitas Mayor Catherine Blakespear and the four City Council members to stand up for us. Examine our issue (which neither the Fish and Game Commission nor the state Legislature has ever done) and come up with the only sane conclusion: 1) Ferrets are domestic animals 2) There is no reason to prohibit them 3) Ask the legislature for an introduction of responsible legislation to legalize them. Please help us. We are running out of windows. We are locked out of the Fish and Game Commission and we haven’t been able to attract a state legislator. Help us crawl through this window. Freedom rings! Pat Wright is a North County native currently living in La Mesa.

No one yet knows how wide the appeal of a so-called progressive candidate like de Leon or activist billionaire Tom Steyer might be among baseline Democratic voters, so it’s impossible yet to determine whether Feinstein might need Republican votes to win reelection. But that is a definite possibility, and if it happens, it would fulfill the purpose of the jungle primary, backed when it began by former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and ex-Lt. Gov. Abel Maldonado, both moderate Republicans. They wanted their sort of candidates to have a chance to win and their sort of voters to be able to influence election outcomes in places where they previously could not. Now comes Feinstein, who could be the rare California incumbent getting less than half her own party’s primary election vote. Republicans, with barely over a quarter of California’s total voter registration, would be unlikely to place a candidate on the ballot this year, just as they failed in the 2016 Senate contest. But if they vote in decent numbers, they are more than sufficient to combine with moderate Democrats to keep a far-leftist candidate from winning. That only works if Republicans actually vote for Feinstein, even if they would much prefer voting for a fellow Republican. Returns from 2016 show that almost exactly 1 million fewer Californians voted for a U.S. Senate candidate than for president, indicating many Republicans didn’t bother to vote in a race between two liberal Democratic women, Harris and then-U.S. Rep. Loretta Sanchez. If most of those in the vote drop-off were Republicans and there is less dropoff this fall, they could assure that California gets the moderate Feinstein and not someone substantially to her left and less patient or willing to compromise. Such an outcome would represent the explicit purpose of top two, and it’s just possible that it might also be the last gasp of that system. For if voters opt to go back to party-driven primaries, the extreme wings of both major parties will once again provide almost all candidates. This would assure plenty of November choices, but would essentially disenfranchise Democrats in Republican-dominated legislative districts and Republicans statewide, as well as those living in the many Democratic-dominated districts.

Rowe elementary, middle school students School board approves perform ‘very well’ on standardized tests team-building session By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — Results have been tallied for the 2016-17 California Assessment of Student Performance Smarter Balanced tests, standardized exams intended to gauge student

state as a whole. In math, 84 percent of R. Roger Rowe Elementary students met or exceeded standards compared with 48 percent in the county as a whole and 40 percent in the state. At R. Roger Rowe Middle

That’s the challenge ... to get a student from wherever they are ... and getting them to grow.” Rancho Santa Fe Superintendent DAVID JAFFE performance in meeting new state education standards. In English and language arts, 87 percent of third- to fifth-graders at R. Roger Rowe Elementary either met or exceeded minimum standards as compared to 53 percent in San Diego County and 49 percent in the

School, 88 percent of sixthto eighth-graders met or exceeded minimum standards in English and language arts compared to 49 percent in both the county and the state. In math, 82 percent of R. Roger Rowe middle school students met or exceeded standards compared to 49 percent in the county

and 37 percent in the state. “For the past three years, as part of a new accountability system for the state, our students have historically performed very well, and they will continue to do so,” Rancho Santa Fe School District Superintendent David Jaffe said. Jaffe said people should know that the evaluation of these tests is more than looking at the final numbers. The scores should be individualized for each student, he said. It serves as a gauge, particularly in the different subject area(s) every year with the exam. It’s one of the many tools utilized for students, he said. “We will have three years’ worth of data so what that means is that you can look at a third-grader, who goes to fourth grade, and then fifth grade and look at their scores to determine their progress,” Jaffe said. “The one thing I would say about any test like that, however, is it’s only one measure

of a student’s performance. In order to get the full understanding of the students’ progress in school and academic subjects, you have to look at multiple measures.” Jaffe said R. Roger Rowe students always perform at a high level. He attributes this to outstanding teachers who work with the kids. Students come to school with various levels of support including their teachers and families, he said. While these tests are only one measure, Jaffe’s focus is on how to navigate students to flourish even more. “That’s the challenge in all of this is to get a student from wherever they are when they start school each year and getting them to grow,” he said. “What type of resources can we provide even to the student that is really in the highest end in performing — how do we continue to have that student grow as well?”

RANCHO SANTA FE — The Rancho Santa Fe School District board of trustees is moving forward with a team building and planning session workshop. The board approved bringing on Suzette Lovely to facilitate it with a cost not to exceed $2,500. Newest school board member Sarah Neal has been a supporter of having a team building session. She has voiced this request several times during school board meetings. “Sarah initiated this conversation when she first got on the board,” RSF School District Superintendent David Jaffe said. “The board agreed to bring somebody on.” It was Jaffe who recommended Lovely a couple of months ago. The idea of a workshop was tabled after Mary Ritto stepped down from the school board on Sept. 7. Jaffe said they wanted to wait for a new board se-

lection before they approved and scheduled a team building session. On Oct. 21, the school board named Jon Yonemitsu to fill Ritto’s seat. Jaffe said Lovely will first speak with board members individually to gather their views on what they would like to accomplish from the workshop. In addition to board goals, the idea of a strategic plan as a board may also be addressed. Jaffe said the team building and planning session is a way of bringing the board together and defining who they are as a board. While President Todd Frank has been on the board since 2010 and Vice President Tyler Seltzer since 2011, other members are somewhat new to the board. Both Scott Kahn and Sarah Neal became members in 2016, and Jon Yonemitsu was appointed in 2017. “Suzanne will first gather information, and then that will help shape the agenda,” Jaffe said.

$102 million effort aims to restore San Elijo Lagoon By Aaron Burgin

ENCINITAS — For Doug Gibson, the executive director of the San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy, a Nov. 29 event was more than two decades in the making. Gibson and a throng of state, regional and local officials — including Encinitas Mayor Catherine Blakespear and State Sen. Patricia Bates (R-Laguna Niguel) — gathered at the lagoon’s nature center to break ground on a historic restoration of the nearly 1,000-acre reserve. But Gibson said the celebration wasn’t quite ready until 9:30 a.m., when officials received the final permit necessary to move forward with the project. “Today we celebrate a

milestone in protecting nature and connecting communities,” Gibson said. The $102 million restoration is part of a suite of transit-oriented projects along the Interstate 5 corridor known as the North Coast Corridor Program, or Build NCC, a trade-off of sorts between state transportation and environmental agencies. Build NCC, which kicked off last year, is a $6 billion program that includes the creation of carpool lanes along Interstate 5 between Solana Beach and State Route 78 in Oceanside, the double tracking of the rail line in Encinitas and the construction of a new segment of the Coastal Rail

Trail. The projects are being paid for with federal, state and regional dollars from TransNet, the regional halfcent sales tax earmarked for transportation projects. The first phase of the restoration, which kicked of Nov. 29, calls for the clearing of vegetation from the lagoon and constructing a series of dikes along the main lagoon channel and inlet to control water levels, the dredging of 450,000 cubic yards of sand from the central basin that will be used for sand replenishment along the coastlines of Solana Beach and Cardiff-bythe-Sea, and the refilling of the dredging pit with lagoon sediment.

Subsequent phases will include dredging of various channels within the lagoon, which will increase tidal flows and also improve the health of the lagoon and establish new wetland habitat for the lagoon wildlife, as well as the creation of new pedestrian trails within the lagoon. Officials at the groundbreaking called the collaboration of environmental and transportation agencies on the Build NCC suite of projects “unprecedented” and a model for future collaborations statewide. “The San Elijo Lagoon Restoration marks a significant milestone for preserving and enhancing our coastal resources,” said Del

Mar Councilman Terry Sinnott, who serves as the vice chairman of the San Diego Association of Governments, the regional transportation agency stewarding the projects. Caltrans Acting Chief Deputy Director Laurie Berman, who also spoke at the Nov. 29 ceremony, echoed Sinnott’s sentiments, saying that projects like the lagoon restoration mark a shift in how the state transit agency handles projects. “Not too long ago you would not have heard of the executive management team crisscrossing the state to develop projects that would have a positive impact on the environment and the transportation system,” Berman

said. “And I am proud of the work we are doing to build holistic projects, of which a showcase for the rest of the state.” Gibson said that as a result of the restoration efforts, visitors to the lagoon will see healthier waters, more wildlife and better access to the lagoon. “It has been a long time coming,” he said.

The Big Band Express makes a Ranch stop By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — Big Band aficionados made a beeline for the Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club on Nov. 12 escaping to a musical era. The theme for the evening was “Dance to the Music of our Soldiers.” More than 75 guests of all ages were in attendance. Everyone joined in on the fun dancing East Coast, West Coast swing, the cha cha, and everything in between. No one had to be a dance pro on the dance floor — the goal was to have a great time. A 16-piece orchestra led by Monty Conley of the Big Band Express provided the entertainment. Every Sunday, the band plays at the Encinitas Elks Lodge. However, on that particular Sunday there was a conflict, and Sharon Alix of Rancho Santa Fe decided to help out by seeing if The Garden Club building was available. And it was. Alix is a sponsor for the band and shared that she and her husband enjoy The Big Band Express. “We dance there every Sunday at the Encinitas Elks Lodge,” she said. Alix was delighted to bring the band to the Ranch. According to Alix, this is the fourth time they have played there. Alix said what makes this event so unique is that it’s a dance party. “This event is for dancers, and it’s just exhilarating,” Alix said. “The charge is only $10 per person.” People don’t need to bring a dance partner — other dancers will be there when they arrive. In fact, Alix’s husband is one of those people who welcomes the newbies. For information about The Big Band Express and their Sunday dances, visit www.thebigbandexpress. com.

perts in the “Wine Bible” book of wines as “tar and roses.” Others include “licorice, leather and chocolate.” In tasting the newest Batasiolo 2013 Barolo DOCG ($31.55), it turned out to be the king of the castle with a complex and powerfully earthy taste. Barbaresco is the other Nebbiolo-based wine that comes from the village of the same name in the Langhe area of southeast Piedmont. It is considered to be more velvety and with great finesse. The 2014 is now out and gained a 93 score in “Wine Spectator” for its refined finish ($40). Finally, I would point out that Batasiolo produces an easy to drink everyday wine with a surprisingly solid flavor called Barbera. The lightly oaked, cherry and spice palate-pleaser is branded with the grape’s varietal name and not a village like most. The 2014 Batasio-

lo Barbera ($14.20) matched up nicely with a Marguarita Pizza at Buona Forchetta. See more information at batasiolo.com/eng. MIGHTY SILVER OAK AT BARREL ROOM Silver Oak is the grand dame of cult-style Cabernet Sauvignons in Napa Valley. The winery is a rarity in that it has a great presence in both Napa Valley and Sonoma. It was founded in 1972 by Raymond Twomey Duncan, making the decision to concentrate on Cabernet. In a memorable wine dinner at the Barrel Room in Rancho Bernardo, guests had the rare opportunity to simultaneously taste the Alexander Valley Sonoma 2013 Cab ($93) and the Napa Valley 2012 Silver Oak Cab ($120) In the ’12 vintage from Napa Valley, the Cab stays in barrel for 25 months

Encinitas girl brings back the ‘Christmas Pony’ By Aaron Burgin

ENCINITAS — On the surface, Avila Colanter seems like your average 11-year-old girl. She loves drawing, writing, hanging out with her pets and her friends, playing with her younger siblings Monnica and Augustine — and horses. But there’s something that separates Avila from her peers: her huge heart. For the second straight year, Avila is bringing holiday cheer to families at the Ronald McDonald House at Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego, combining her love of horses and her desire to help children. It’s called the “Christmas Pony.” On Dec. 13, Avila and Beanie Baby, a miniature pony owned by Bird Rock resident Anne Shapery, will come to the Ronald McDonald House bearing boxes of gifts for the charity’s annual Santa’s Workshop. Last year, Beanie Baby and Avila also visited with the children at the Ronald McDonald House school, where siblings of children hospitalized at Rady attend school during their siblings’ treatment. Avila’s generosity has inspired her family, friends and the charity she has championed. “The compassion of the San Diego community is essential to our ability to create a physical and emotional sanctuary from the challenges involved with caring for a hospitalized child,” said Chuck Day, president and CEO of Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego. “Avila’s kind heart illustrates how anyone can donate their time, talent and treasures to the House and brighten a family’s day.” Avila, devout in her faith, credited God for her penchant for altruism.

Avila Colanter “I just feel blessed a lot of times to have my family and my pets and to have a home, and I want other kids to have that, too,” Avila said. Avila’s mother, Brit Colanter, said her daughter has always been very thoughtful and keenly aware of what is going on with other kids around the world. Colanter each year has been involved with Operation Christmas Child, a philanthropic effort by the Christian international relief agency Samaritan’s Purse in which people deliver a shoebox filled with gifts to a needy family in a developing country. Colanter said that a few years ago, her daughter got the idea of wanting to bring gifts to needy kids — and somehow tie in a pony to it all. “She would see the videos of the kids getting the boxes and she said, ‘I would love to be there to bring it to them and if I could do it, I would do it on a pony,’” Colanter said. “That’s kind of how it all started, and she wouldn’t let it go. For a couple of years, she would bring it up, and then finally around last October, she said she wanted to do it.” In order to do it, they needed to find a group

to donate to and a horse. Both, Colanter said, came through friends of friends. One family friend told them of Shapery, who raises animals used in therapy for children with autism, veterans and other people. Shapery said she enthusiastically agreed to be a part of the plans. “I just thought it was the perfect fit, because Beanie Baby just brings joy wherever he goes,” Shapery said. “It just warms my heart what Avila is doing, she is just so sweet, she’s a darling little girl.” Next, another family friend suggested the Ronald McDonald House Charities as a potential organization for which to pull off the idea. Colanter said she cold called the charity and was surprised at how swiftly they coordinated the event. “It was amazing, they are really great people,” she said. “It was seamless. They were very encouraging, very excited about it. They helped us pick a date where we could meet the students, they met us at the door and helped us every step of the way, even helping us get the gifts up the stairs.” Avila said she was surprised at the reception she received last year, and is excited to do it again. “Honestly, I was surprised, but I am so happy that people gave gifts and were so generous,” Avila said. If you are interested in donating a toy or gift for the Christmas Pony, contact Brit Colanter at (760) 473-9539.

Local investors sought to help North County airline take to the skies CARLSBAD — The long-awaited California Pacific Airlines is poised to take to the skies on April 1, and while Ted Vallas is all smiles, this is no April Fool’s joke. Flying out of Carlsbad’s McClellan-Palomar Airport, Vallas’ dream will soon be a reality and he invites North County residents to be a part of it — and not just as passengers. Vallas, 96, is currently seeking local investors as part of his vision of having CP Air be a true North County airline. “Not just in conversation, but in ownership as well,” Vallas said. “I want this to be a North San Diego County owned and operated airline. I am a great believer in the community being behind this operation and getting involved.” The road leading up to this point has had a few twists and turns, but the airline is at last ready to roll out phase 1. As of April 1, 2018, subject to county airports, CP Air will service five U.S. cities — Sacramento, Phoenix, Tucson,

Oakland, San Jose — as well as Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. “Things are moving forward very quickly, it’s looking very exciting,” Paul Hook, director of operations and operations advisor for California Pacific Airlines said. “We are starting with six aircraft and we will be expanding to 25.” Phase 2 will include service to Utah, Houston and various other cities. While Vallas has lofty goals for CP Air, he’s had a

lifetime of experience with success. “I promised myself I’d stay alive until this becomes the best airline in the country,” he said. Vallas has run more than 40 businesses in his 95 years following a stint with the Navy. Included in his varied career is the manufacturing and remanufacturing of aircraft. He was also the developer of many local landmarks, including what is now known as Morgan Run Club & Resort in Rancho Santa Fe. He also spent 19 years as the sole owner of a flag and domestic airline that operated primarily from Lindberg Field. Of major importance at CP Air is quality of service. To maximize passenger comfort, CP Air will fly EJ 145 jets that have been modified from 50 seats to 44 seats as well as EJ 170 jets that have been modified from 80 seats to 64 seats. “Our aircraft will have a lot of leg room and extra space,” Vallas said. “Our planes will be superior to anything that

the larger airlines have.” The CP Air experience will harken back to the golden age of air travel, when flying was considered a special event. “The quality of service you will get with us is different than what other airlines are offering these days,” Guillermo Velarde, CP Air board member and financial and business consultant, said. “We want to offer a completely different experience and the best service possible.” “We are not a low-cost airline and that’s not how we’ve structured ourselves,” Vallas said. “However, we are able to price our flights comparably to Lindbergh Field. But with what we offer and the convenience of McClellan-Palomar Airport, there really is no comparison.” Beyond comfort, service and accessibility, CP Air has plenty to bring to North County. “We are looking forward to bringing additional employment, tax revenues and airport recognition,”

Hook said. CP Air will bring an estimated 150 jobs to North County in its first year, which could multiply to 1,000 local jobs by year four. “Because of the demographics of the area, we have 1.3 million in North County alone, and a catchment area in excess of 3 million, who we can service who will not have to travel to San Diego, Orange County or Los Angeles,” Vallas said. He pointed out that this is a savings in time and in dollars. “It gets people off of the freeways,” he said. “Our market area is about 50 percent business people up and down and all throughout the West Coast,” Vallas added. “We will be bringing tourism into North County from five U.S. cities to start. The hotels, the restaurants will all benefit.” With business bound to be booming, Vallas is reaching out to bring more local investors into the fold. “At present time I own 92 percent of the company,” he said. “I have about $15 million of my

family’s and my own money invested. And now we’ve been authorized by the SEC to sell stock locally, and we’d like to keep it a definite low number of investors, primarily in North County.” Vallas promises full transparency to all his investors. “We disclose every possible risk that there could be to the business,” he said. “An airline is not an everyday business. But it’s very rewarding when it’s successful. And there is no reason to it not to be successful. The demand and demographics indicated that there is more demand for seats in North County than we can produce in the next three years.” For more information and specifics about this unique investment opportunity, please contact Ted Vallas at vallas1@cox.net or call Phone: (760) 814-2052 Fax 760-814-2085. We are now FAA 121 Scheduled Airline subject to FAA.

nia's two most coveted political posts. “It seems high to me, especially in the Senate race when you have an incumbent running,” Baldassare said, The Times reported. He said that Californians appear to be more politically engaged than in years past but that most of their attention is focused on the daily machinations in Washington, D.C. In the 2018 race for governor, Newsom is backed by 23 percent of likely voters, with fellow Democrat Villaraigosa trailing close behind with 18 percent support, according to the survey. The rest of the major candidates hovered in the single digits. Among the other Democrats, state Treasurer John Chiang was favored by 9 percent of likely voters, and former state schools chief Delaine Eastin by 3 percent, The Times reported. The PPIC survey shows a slightly tighter race between Newsom and Villaraigosa than the margin in a USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times poll released in early November, according to The Times. In the Senate race, Feinstein, a Democrat, leads by more than a 2-to1 margin over her biggest rival in her bid for a fifth full term in the U.S. Senate. According to the poll, 45 percent of likely voters support Feinstein compared with 21 percent who back her fellow Democrat, state Senate leader Kevin de Leon of Los Angeles, The Times reported. — City News Service

“He loves this course,” House said. The three wins were all on Del Mar’s turf course but involved different distances. The Eddie Read Stakes race was 1 1/8 miles and the Del Mar Handicap was a 1 3/8-mile race. The Seabiscuit Handicap was Hunt’s eighth overall win in 26 career starts. The $120,000 first-place share of the $200,000 total purse brought Hunt’s career earnings to $668,764. Hunt’s race prior to the Seabiscuit Handicap was his only Del Mar loss of 2017 but was in the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Turf race Nov. 4 in which Hunt finished 13th. Hunt was foaled in Ireland on April 2, 2012. He was sired by Dark Angel out of Mansiya. House does not expect Hunt’s next race to be in the immediate future. “We’re going to give him a break,” House said. Nov. 26 was Closing Day

for Del Mar’s Bing Crosby Season meet. The Seabiscuit Handicap was the day’s third race, and in the fifth race House’s 3-year-old filly Fizzy Friday finished first in the one-mile turf race for fillies and mares 3 years old and upwards. Fizzy Friday won the 12-horse race in 1:35.94 and finished 1 3/4 lengths in front of second-place Del Mar Ann. Del Mar’s other two stakes races Nov. 26 were won by horses under the training of New York trainer Chad Brown; Off Limits not only won the Grade 1 Matriarch Stakes but set a stakes record of 1:34.37 for the onemile race and Analyze It prevailed in the Grade 3 Cecil B. DeMille Stakes which concluded the fall meet. Assistant trainer Jose Hernandez rather than Brown made the trip to Del Mar. The 16-day fall meet began Nov. 1. “It’s been a great year for summer and fall, a good safe profitable year for old Del Mar,” said Del Mar Thoroughbred Club general manager Joe Harper.

Tips for the travel-minded hit the road e’louise ondash


y mailboxes — digital and real — are usually full of a lot of things that I don’t want or need, but occasionally they contain information worthy of passing along, like the following:

UNDER ONE ROOF The 2018 Travel & Adventure Show is coming to the San Diego Convention Center Jan. 13 and Jan. 14. See big names in travel (Samantha Brown; Rudy Maxa; Pauline Frommer; Peter Greenberg); visit vendor booths to learn about best destinations and deals for 2018, and how to make travel easier (can you really pack two weeks’ clothing in a carry-on?); and sample cuisine and music from exotic places. Admission: $15/ one day; $22/two days. Active-duty military and four family members are free. Visit https://travelshows. com/shows/san-diego/. THE COAST IS CLEAR! When fall and winter arrive, the tourists leave and Californians can call the coast our own. One of the best stretches: the San Simeon area of the Central Coast. Quaint Cambria offers the Christmas Market through Dec. 23, and the Central Coast State Parks Association presents free docent-led hikes, classes and workshops (some wheelchair accessible). Don’t miss the elephant seals at the Piedras Blancas rookery, 7 miles north of Cambria on Highway 1). Visit http://visitsansimeonca.com. WORTH THE DRIVE Military aircraft history buffs will love the March Field Air Museum, adjacent to March Air Reserve Base on Interstate 215. I’ve visited several times and there are always new exhibits, like the full-size replica of the Wright Flyer, in which Orville and Wilbur took their first flight. (Look up; it hangs from the ceiling.) In the main hangar: the massive SR-71 Blackbird, a Mach 3 reconnaissance aircraft that fit through the museum’s hangar door with barely an inch to spare. On the tarmac: dozens of historic aircraft — bombers, trainers, fighters and more. In the small-scale category: Follow the life of World War II tail gunner Staff Sergeant Vincent Rogers through his sometimes deeply personal letters. Full disclosure: My mother, Marcella Fried Lucier, is featured in an exhibit honoring the Women Air Service Pilots (WASP) of World War II. She was one of 1,074 women who tested and ferried newly manufactured military aircraft to bases around the country, towed targets during live-ammo

target practices and performed other jobs to free male pilots for combat. For their service, WASPs were awarded the Congressional Gold Medal in 2009. Visit http://www.marchfield.org. LONELY PLANET’S TOP 10 What’s hot in travel for 2018? Lonely Planet writers and editors have created a list of must-see regions, and yes, it’s a good thing that you haven’t heard of most of these. 10) Los Haitises National Park, Dominican Republic — “…a patchwork of craggy islets, blue canals and verdant forest … an ecosystem that appears plucked from prehistory.” 9) Bahia, Brazil — “ … tropical paradise of white sandy beaches … ” Also Chapada Diamantina National Park “famous for its wild waterfalls.” 8) Lahaul-Spiti, India — Rugged landscapes “bordering on the supernatural” and some of India’s most spectacular Buddhist art. 7) The Deep South — Yes, our Deep South — the Carolinas, Georgia, Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana. Think Delta music, alligators, moss-covered cypress trees, great seafood and lots of American history. 6) Aeolian Islands, off the tip of Italy’s boot — Sublime seascapes, volcanic slopes, black-sand beaches and some of Europe’s best coastal walks and drives. 5) Kii Peninsula, Japan — Avoid the crowds and ex-

perience sublime scenery, steaming hot springs, Shinto shrines, Buddhist temples and beautiful walking trails signposted in English. 4) Languedoc-Roussillon, France — With its white beaches, blue seas, country markets and Roman ruins, it’s a wise alternative to Provence and Cote d’Azur. 3) Julian Alps, Slovenia — The backdrop for many films, it is “mountain bliss in an overlooked corner of Europe.” Once was for only the intrepid, it is now accessible to the less hardy. 2) Alaska — Scenery and wildlife on steroids: Denali, glaciers and grizzlies.

in San Pasqual Valley,” she said. “It was very, very gruesome battle, but it was very significant in this state.” After the war, and when California became a state, Kreutz noted the Juan María Osuna Adobe was rehabilitated and considered one of the early projects for what would be known as part of Rancho Santa Fe. Association Assistant Manager Christy Whalen is quick to point out the great work of both the Osuna Committee and Association staff who were able to make this historical designation happen. “The Osuna Committee has been working for several years on this, and it’s really



According to Kreutz, the Association worked on getting a designation for several years. Kreutz came into the project in the final year. “I had to provide a bunch of photos and I worked with the Historical Society to collect a wealth of historical documentation and just the history of the Osuna,” Kreutz said. “I had to put it all together, do the government forms and go through the submittal process, which is incredibly lengthy. We also worked with several state historians to get them the information that they needed. I focused

on several periods of significance.” The first was in 1831 when the Silvas acquired a provisional land grant building the first adobe in the San Dieguito Valley. In 1836, Juan María Osuna received a provisional land grant totaling 8,842 acres, also referred to as the Rancho San Dieguito. He occupied the existing adobe and site. Osuna’s historical role is significant as he served as the first mayor in San Diego. “Another really interesting thing was the Californios did gather at the Osuna Ranch before the Battle of San Pasqual (Mexican American War), which is out

won’t deny I am enjoying the scent of a real fir tree in my home this year. A live tree has not darkened my door for some time. If putting up the tree is left to me, as it has been for decades, I am quite content with my fake tree with the attached lights. However, since my daughter and her hubby are part of our household now, I saw a perfect opportunity and I jumped at it. “I will foot the bill for a live Christmas tree, if you want to find it, buy it, schlep it home, put the lights on, decorate it and then be prepared to undecorate it, take the lights off and put it out for recycling, then vacuum up the dead pine needles,” I said, with a sweet smile. They bought the tree today and it is up, looking and smelling delightful, complete with lights and ornaments, in our front window. They loved doing it and I loved not doing it. OK, I did help. I’m not all about convenience. I moved the furniture around to make room in the front window and found a stur-

dy box to set the tree up on to show off its best angle. And most importantly, I enthusiastically oohed and aahed and applauded and told them how wonderful it looks. In my world, loudly appreciating extra effort is a must. That’s just one more reason I don’t wrestle with a live tree anymore. I did it all for the first 12 years of my children’s lives, which I believe keeps my title of Perfect Mother intact. But once they hit the age of nonchalance, and managed to always be absent when the tree needed to go up and come down, I lost my need to smell fresh pine. I did plan to hang the outdoor lights, as I always do, but they had disappeared. New lights have been purchased and will soon be hung by the roofline with care. Hopefully, I will manage to get the rest of my decorations up before mid-month. I still do plenty of buying, wrapping, cookie baking, latke frying and other festive things, and that leaves my conscience clear in the live vs. faux tree debate. That’s my excuse and I’m sticking with it. Jean Gillette is a freelance writer occasionally heard mumbling “Bah! Humbug!” Contact her at jgillette@coastnewsgroup.com.

Address money, health and legal matters with confidence. You can bring about positive change if you are willing to do the legwork and take care of unfinished business. Strive to make personal, domestic and financial changes if you want to achieve greater stability and peace of mind. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- A move, renovation or decor change will boost your spirits and get you in the mood for upcoming festivities. Make plans and share them with someone you love. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Take money matters, medical issues and contractual concerns into your own hands to catch a last-minute change that isn’t in your best interest. Avoid hasty decisions. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Discuss your plans with a personal or professional partner and find a way to incorporate ideas and solutions that will appease everyone involved. Your input will help you gain respect. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- A change that initially appears to be a step back will turn out to be beneficial. Don’t fight the inevitable. Be willing to adapt to whatever comes your way. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Business trips, meetings and conversations that offer inside information will help you

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Offering incentives will help keep you out of trouble. A shopping spree will result in a purchase made to appease someone you disappointed. Consider spending time with this person instead of money on him or her.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Your insight, intelligence and ability to convince others to see things your way will encourage a change in your life. Romance is highlighted.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Discuss your plans openly and listen to the advice offered you. You may not agree with it, but taking a cautious approach is in your best interest. Focus on revisions and cost-efficiency. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You’ll hit an emotional brick wall if you get into a personal discussion with someone you know through work. Keep your private matters a secret. Don’t mix business with pleasure. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Emotions will be difficult to control. A personal relationship will need nurturing if you want to avoid complaints. Be a good listener and offer honesty as well as empathy.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Sign up to help those less fortunate or people who are struggling. Volunteer to serve in a soup kitchen or to raise funds to support children, animals or any other project that touches your heart.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Focus on what you must accomplish. Put work first and take care of responsibilities that could help you get a promotion. Strive to be a leader and plan to celebrate with someone you love.

ATTENTION SOPHISTICATED INVESTORS “Join me as a co-founder of new hometown airline.” — Ted Vallas

FUELING A VISION The Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act is a law intended to jumpstart the economy by creating opportunities for small businesses, startups and entrepreneurs. For California Pacific Airlines, the JOBS Act means we can now invite more people to invest in our vision to bring a better way to travel to our North County communities.

A VISION FOR THE COMMUNITY When California Pacific Airlines begins service, the impact on North County and service city communities will be immeasurable. CP Air not only brings the much needed convenience of jet service to North County (supporting business and leisure travel), but it will also drive significant regional economic growth and create new jobs. CP Air will be Southern California’s only truly hometown airline, an airline that our community will be proud of. Launching an airline is a very complicated operation. For the last 4 years, we have worked to assemble the best team to meet all of the critical FAA regulation requirements

and we are proud to say that we continue to finalize the necessary steps towards formal certification. We are fortunate to have passionate, early investors who share our vision and continue to work with us to meet our ongoing capital requirements. In order for us to finalize the launch process, we need to continue to raise the necessary funds to complete the certification process and initiate operational service. With the JOBS Act now easing regulations on the funding of U.S. small businesses to spur growth and create more jobs, we are now able to invite our community to directly participate

SEE THE BUZZ in our vision and become a critical resource to help raise the remaining funds needed to launch California Pacific Airlines.

FOR INVESTMENT INFORMATION CALL 760.436.8919 or email: VALLAS1@cox.net YES, I want to be an Investor. Thank you for believing in a Better Way and for your support of California Pacific Airlines! (Please note that these offerings are made pursuant to Rule 506(c) of Regulation D of the Securities Act of 1933, and the JOBS Act.)

Take Flight With Us CP Air is raising $20 million to help launch a better way to travel to North County San Diego, delivering on our vision to offer convenient jet service, increase local commerce and create new jobs for our community. Now you can help make it happen.

FOR MORE INFORMATION CALL 760.436.8919 Email: VALLAS1@cox.net
