Hundreds turn out to honor Delaney RANCHO SANTA FE — ­ At least 200 people turned out to honor former Rancho Santa Fe School Superintendent Liindy Delaney. The event also helped to raise funds for the Lindy Delaney Legacy Fund. “Lindy is a beloved member of the Rancho Santa Fe community and people are thrilled to have a meaningful way to honor her,” RSF Foundation Development Director Barbara Edwards told the Rancho Santa Fe News back in January.

Golfers go big to support injured troops By Bianca Kaplanek

RANCHO SANTA FE — Less than 20 minutes and 20 balls into the third annual 15-Inch Hole-inOne Cup Challenge, Air Force veteran Bryan Taylor became the first player of the day to sink one during the Operation Game On fundraiser, held Feb. 6 at Fairbanks Ranch Country Club. And he didn’t do it the easy way. Taylor hit the oversized cup from 100 yards away, the third farthest distance. The shot earned him $500, half of which he donated back to Operation Game On. Taylor wasn’t the only golfer to walk away with bragging rights. In all, 12 holes-in-one were made into cups nearly four times larger than a traditional hole. Players paid $150 for 20 golf balls, which they tried to get in cups either 50, 75, 100 or 150 yards away to win $150, $250, $500 or $1,000, respectively. Two winners hit the 50-yard mark, seven made it from 75 yards away and three sunk a hole-in-one 100 yards out. The payouts would have totaled $3,550 but $2,100 was donated back to Operation Game On, which provides free golf lessons and equipment for severely physically and mentally in-

described as a great charity. Some were golfers, including Encinitas resident Marcus Reynolds and Brad McMurrey of Carlsbad, creators of YouTube’s The Marcus Cup golf comedy. Denise Mueller, also from Carlsbad, was among those who do not consider themselves golfers. Clocked at 147 mph, Mueller is the world’s fastest woman in the world on a bike. But she had only hit a golf ball once in her life, Air Force veteran Bryan Taylor, right, gets congratulations from Tony Perez as the first golfer of the day to about 25 years ago.

Participants were treated to free beverages, all of which were donated, Dang Brother Pizza, tacos by El Tapatio and sandwiches from Jersey Mike’s.

Among them was Jeff Gearhart, who made two holes-inone at the inaugural event and took home tickets for a free round of golf at Pebble Beach. “I had a great time,” Gearhart said about his first year at the fundraiser. “It’s fun and people have a change to mingle, all to benefit a worthy cause.” Others were first-time participants, there to support Perez and what they

Uncertain future for state’s anti-smog efforts California Focus By Thomas D. Elias


ases of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease are down about three percent over the last 40 years in California, even as state population is up by well over one-third, better than 15 million, and far more smog-belching vehicles than ever clog the roads. This is a major public health achievement, and the single biggest reason behind it is the 45-year-old federal Clean Air Act and its provisions for California waivers. Despite this and other clear-cut successes, the California waivers vital to this state’s long-running battle against smog may soon be threatened. Those waivers let California set automotive and industrial emissions standards stricter than those in other parts of America, justified by substandard air quality in places like the Los Angeles basin and Bakersfield. While there is some disbelief in high quarters over climate change and the effects of man-made greenhouse gases, no one doubts what smog can do to human lungs. On any warm day in places like the San Joaquin, San Fernando and Santa Clara valleys, it’s hard to miss the brown taint smog often gives the air. But the number of smog alerts has dropped steadily for decades all over California, largely because of the waivers. Rules they made possible are behind generations of smog control devices, industrial smokestack controls and catalytic converters, plus hybrid, electric and now hydrogen powered cars. So effective are the California rules that more than a dozen other states passed laws requiring them to adopt for themselves any

new California standards within a few years of their taking effect here. These advances, plus new zero emissions vehicles and other improvements now in the works, were at first pronounced economic impossibilities by a united front of automakers. Yet, they’ve found ways to make these things both stylish and profitable. Without the California waiver capability written into the Clean Air

Never mind that it’s a little late to disinvent the Toyota Prius, the Tesla Models X and S and other hybrid and electric cars. Act before then-President Richard Nixon signed it in the early 1970s, none of this could be. All this is now threatened by the words and record of President Trump’s nominee to head the Environmental Protection Agency. In his confirmation hearing before a Senate committee, Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt refused to commit even to keep in place the current versions of California waivers. Over the last four decades, the EPA granted this state more than 50 such waivers. Historically, these have been harder for the state to get under Republican presidents than under Democrats. For example, a requirement that large carmakers produce hydrogen cars like the Toyota Mirai and other advanced autos now in the works did not occur while George W. Bush was president, even though state officials in 2005 began applying for a greenhouse gas-fight-

ing waiver to authorize it. Within less than a month after Barack Obama took office in 2009, the waiver process was underway, eventually winning approval that July. Pruitt, often accused of favoring oil companies and other polluters in his home state, said he plans to review all California’s waivers and might even try to take away powers granted in the past. Never mind that it’s a little late to disinvent the Toyota Prius, the Tesla Models X and S and other hybrid and electric cars. It would be one thing for Pruitt to refuse new California waivers despite their many successes. There’s precedent for that. But Pruitt would be treading on new legal ground if he tries to cancel existing waivers. This possibility is one reason California legislators retained the law firm of former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to help fight off potential Trump administration attempts to nix current state programs. New state Attorney General Xavier Becerra also vows resistance. No one knows where all this might lead under an administration otherwise committed to allowing states plenty of leeway to manage their own destinies on things like voting rights and water quality. “When we hear you say ‘review,’” Democratic Sen. Ed Markey of Massachusetts told Pruitt during his hearing, “I hear ‘undo the rights of the states.’” It sets up an uncertain future for one of the most positive, successful of state efforts, one that’s been backed by all California governors going back to Ronald Reagan in the late 1960s.

Property values Over the last several years, property values have skyrocketed around Encinitas. Landlords are doubling, even tripling rent and some small businesses are forced to shut. Last week another long established retail shop Gardenology closed due to her lease being up and the new rent going up to $16,000 plus a month I heard. On my morning run loop through downtown Encinitas, I noticed another permit application in the window for a beer tasting room in a vacant shop next to Ironsmith coffee. This storefront was unable to rent for over 15 months due to I’m sure the extremely high rent. It appears that beer and wine establishments are the only businesses that can afford the sky rocketing rents in downtown Encinitas and cool retail businesses are being forced out when their leases are up. We already have Culture Beer tasting room opening soon in downtown Encinitas. Don’t get me wrong I love a good IPA beer but it appears that alcohol and coffee houses are taking over downtown Encinitas. Isn’t it about time that the city of Encinitas puts a halt to one more beer bar permit? I have lived here for over 30 years and appreciate some of the nice changes and additions to downtown Encinitas but I find myself with the distinct sense that something has been lost and there, as they say, goes the neighborhood.

Dieguito Union High School District Board leadership in their recent decision to hire a superintendent and their success in implementing their capital bond program. Over the years I have seen my share of good and bad public sector executive leaders. It is a fallacy to think only a teacher/principal can be a superintendent. The best leaders I have worked with were often from “outside” the normal professional path. These have included both private sector managers leading a government agency or non-engineers who managed engineers. You don’t have to be one to manage one. In the case of SDUHSD, the Board selected a person who understands the District and its people. The Board deserves credit for looking for a leader first, and they made an excellent choice with Mr. Dill. Regarding the SDUHSD’s capital bond projects, I have followed the District’s efforts as a professional in the construction industry. I managed three different bond programs for area districts. I know about selection methods and project delivery options. SDUHSD has performed this task as well as any district in San Diego. The selections made and local companies used in the execution of projects have been top notch. The students, parents and taxpayers are fortunate to have the leadership we have.

San Dieguito School Board on right track I commend the San Community Choice for

San Diego County Counties all across California are acting swiftly and decisively to accelerate their transition to clean energy. On Feb. 15, the San Diego County Board of Supervisors will have an opportunity to make the right choice for our environment and our local economy by voting to move ahead with a Community Choice Energy Feasibility Study. Community Choice Energy is a tool that is increasingly gaining favor in the statewide effort to increase energy independence while slashing our carbon footprint. It works by allowing government to buy electrical power on behalf of its residents while the existing utility continues to maintain the grid. Community Choice can offer a higher percentage of renewable energy in electricity service at prices competitive with the investor-owned utility. Among other benefits, Community Choice creates local jobs, boosts local economic development, controls energy costs for residents, and helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Residents in Sonoma have saved over $62 million cumulatively since Community Choice went live there in 2014. Meanwhile in Marin County, Community Choice has sparked the development of numerous local energy projects while keeping costs low. San Diego residents deserve the same benefits as our counterparts across the state. The Board of Supervisors should vote yes to leaving the possibility of Community Choice open for San Diego County.

Neal addresses public comment during board meetings By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — Rancho Santa Fe School District board member Sarah Neal brought up the topic of public comment during the Feb. 2 monthly board meeting. This was only a discussion item. Neal wanted to know if the board would consider moving the public comment portion of the meeting, when it related to an agenda item, to that agenda time slot rather than having it take place at the beginning of the meeting as it currently stood. Neal acknowledged how the community remains a big supporter of the school and how their input is valued. She believed that the public would be able to give the most meaningful comment after they heard the background information

on an agenda item during the course of the meeting that they wouldn’t otherwise know at the onset. “The other reason I think it’s going to be better for us if we allow that input to come at the agenda item is because it’s going to be more efficient for the meeting because we’re only talking about that agenda item once.” Neal also shared examples of other nearby school boards who conducted public comment in a similar fashion. School board president Todd Frank shared how over the years, he has seen the latitude a president can have and has never witnessed a time where anyone was denied the chance to give their input. “I’m trying to think what prob-

lem we’re solving because I’ve never been in a position in six years where someone didn’t get a chance to give the feedback that they needed to or

I don’t think there’s a problem here that needs to be solved.” Tyler Seltzer Vice President, RSF School Board

that they couldn’t make their needs known,” Frank said. And if the public had more to

offer, Frank said, a town hall style meeting could occur which would provide interaction designed to elucidate different issues, comments and viewpoints. Especially with the flexibility the board has with their policy, Frank said, he suggested they wait and see until a situation did arise and move forward to manage and mandate through it. Neal, however, still felt that for the public, a parent or even a teacher who wants to provide a comment, it would be more beneficial for them to have the opportunity to hear the background information about the agenda items first. Neal then cited an example of when a public comment portion of a school board meeting was pulled into print media and

his season’s unusually heavy rainfall in North County may have created hazards for our community beyond sporadic street flooding and vehicle spinouts. Though the historic winter rains have offered some welcome relief to area reservoirs and lakes, much of the precipitation that falls in the region flows directly out to our bays and beaches, carrying with it the pollutants that accumulate on our sidewalks and roadways — motor oil, pesticides, trash, and other hazardous chemicals. The all-too-common results are beach closures and posted advisories. Over the last few years, local government agencies have taken steps to curb storm water pollution and increase public program investments. The number of days for city beach closures and health advisories has since dropped significantly. Still, problems persist with managing the issue in the region. Municipal street sweeping, which prevents chemicals and debris from entering the ocean, hasn’t always been fully funded or operated at a high efficiency level. Ongoing water testing results by San Diego Coastkeeper, a local nonprofit environmental organization, has also identified “poor” and “marginal” quality levels of our North County watersheds, such as Buena Vista Creek and Escondido Creek. In an era of limited tax dollars, and a potential economic slowdown ahead, it is important that local cities take a look at what can be TURN TO NORTHBOUND ON 14

appeared somewhat disjointed. “Again, that comment maybe wasn’t as appropriate because it was given at the beginning of the meeting where that individual didn’t have the details that the rest of the Board did have; and, so it’s almost like misreporting because the comment was given at the beginning, but yet the details of that agenda item were discussed later in the meeting.” School Board Vice President Tyler Seltzer said that in his experience no one has ever had trouble sharing their input with him no matter what the public comment part has indicated. “I don’t think there’s a problem here that needs to be solved,” Seltzer said.

Board approves letter for delinquent Association assessments By Christina Macone-Greene to approve the pre-lien let- sheet for which indicat-

RANCHO SANTA FE — The Rancho Santa Fe Association board of directors approved a pre-lien letter at its Feb. 2 meeting in an effort to collect delinquent Association assessments. Also approved was a list of properties identified whose owners will receive the letter. According to board treasurer Janet Danola, the list of delinquencies had become considerably shorter. Danola attributed this to the good work of the Association staff members who were making phone calls and sending out email notices to its members. “So we’re dealing with a nice, short list at this point in time which is great,” Danola said. The board first moved

ter. Danola noted that the template pre-lien letter was developed by the Association’s attorneys. She also indicated that Association assessment pre-lien letters would also be sent by the attorneys as well. Danola told the board that both she and the Association’s controller, Matthew Ditonto reviewed the delinquent assessment list and sorted through it. Danola then provided the board with a sectional update. “The first section of the list is the members that we propose to send a letter to. They all received their certified mail receipt,” she said, adding how one was unclaimed. Danola pointed out the next section of the

ed a number of incorrect property owner addresses. For this section, Danola shared how the Association has tried to reach out to these individuals and also sent out multiple letters. In this grouping, the situation could have been something like a change in property ownership, she said. At this point in time, Danola conveyed how research was still underway for this section. The third section pertained to payment plans. Board president Fred Wasserman explained to Covenant members present at the meeting how under the current David-Stirling Act, a member has a right to request a payment plan and the Association has an obligation to consider it.

Nominations open, storm aftermath reviewed The creeping crud By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — Rancho Santa Fe Association interim manager Christy Whalen kicked off her monthly board meeting update by reminding the board and Covenant members in attendance how they were in the middle of an election season. Although early in the process, to date the Association had not yet received any candidate nominations for the Board of Directors. Nominations will remain open until March. “If anyone knows of someone who is interested in running, we have two

seats open,” Whalen said. One seat is held by Kim Eggleston, with the other held by Rick Sapp, whose term also ends June 30. Last August, Sapp was elected to fill a vacant board of director’s seat at the Rancho Santa Fe Association following Ann Boon’s resignation on July, 7, 2016. Whalen then addressed how the community weathered the powerful Jan. storms. Prior to them landing, the Association delivered e-blasts to its Covenant members letting them know that bad weather was anticipated, Whalen said. The community was advised that both flooding and road closures were anticipated and were encouraged to use caution. “We had quite a busy four days from Jan. 20 to Jan. 24,” she said, noting how the RSF Patrol received 88 calls during that timeframe. Whalen said from the calls recorded, seven streets had flooded, three vehicles were stuck in the water, three power lines were down, and four collisions occurred with one

minor injury. Traffic signs were also down. “Two minor mudslides were reported and lots of high winds. When we get high winds in this community, it sets off a lot of people’s alarms so there were a lot of alarm calls as well,” Whalen said. Another group incred-

trees, and so I think it could have been a lot worse.” Whalen shared how the community was fortunate that most of the trees fell away from the roadway. “We did have some fall into the roadway, especially on El Camino Real, that was closed for a bit, and again, an exhausting time

If anyone knows of someone who is interested in running, we have two seats open.” Christy Whalen Interim Manager, RSF Association

ibly busy during this time was the Association’s parks and recreations crew having received many calls. Whalen shared how they were responsible in helping to clear the downed trees. “We had probably 30 to 40 trees going down in the areas of the Association is responsible for, on Association-owned property and public right of ways,” she said. “Our crew has done a great job over the past five years of identifying and removing diseased and dead

for both our patrol and our parks crew,” she said. “But it could have been a whole lot worse had we not had our guys being so on top of it. So a great thanks to the people in patrol, and parks and recs.” Whalen then touched upon the recent tree-planting event at Osuna Ranch on Jan. 28 that had 70 participants who helped plant a total of 35 California native trees. “It was a nice community event,” Whalen said.

No…I am yelling at myself, trying in vain to circumvent my twelfth day of the creeping crud. My stellar record of health bit the dust last week. I am not looking to lay blame, as we are all unwitting carriers in one way or another. I am just looking to catch a break here. Once my defenses went down, like a blowtorch through tissue paper, things tried really hard to spin right out of control.

The top three myths about hair transplant surgery OCEANSIDE — If you’ve been considering hair restoration, you want to have all the facts. As with any surgical procedure, misinformation is everywhere. Dan Wagner, CEO of MyHairTransplantMD, wants to help you make an informed decision about whether hair restoration is right for you, right now. Because client satisfaction is important to him, Wagner wants to dispel three of the most common myths about hair restoration. Myth #1: Hair restoration is expensive “This doesn’t have to be true,” Wagner said. “Hair restoration, like anything, takes planning and choosing the right surgeon is key.” The specialists at MyHairTransplantMD will have their initial consultation with you where they will assess your hair loss situation and your desired results. “With proper planning and execution, you are going to get the results you’re looking for,” Wagner said.

“We will get it right for you the first time. If you go running from doctor to doctor, not only will you be lacking in a comprehensive plan, but it will end up costing you more money.” Choosing a surgeon who will give you a plan of attack for not just your current hair loss but also any future hair loss is key. “The plan for someone who has thin hair is different from someone who has lost it all,” Wagner said. We help you replace it as you lose

it, at the pace that is specific to your case.” Wagner said that a hair restoration plan done right will only need to be done once. Myth #2: Any doctor can perform hair transplant surgery “Hair restoration is a specialty, and you want to go to a specialist,” Wagner said. “Specialists are trained to treat you in the long term.” MyHairTransplantMD offers only specialized hair resto-

ration services.“Our surgeons are highly trained and skilled at performing hair restoration surgery,” Wagner said. “It’s the only thing we do here, and we stand by the results our surgeons deliver. Our team in particular has a more artistic approach than some of the other offices that might offer it.” With the growth in popularity of robotic surgery in the industry, Wagner advises clients to consider the risks involved. “Robotic surgery enables less skilled surgeons to perform procedures, but here we feel that there is a valuable difference when choosing a surgeon over a robot,” he said. “We perform our surgeries by hand and our results reflect the vast difference between the details that only the human eye can see versus what a robot can.” Myth #3: Results are immediate “You didn’t lose your hair overnight, and we can’t restore it overnight,” Wagner said. “We are redistributing your hair, not creating it.” MyHairTransplantMD uses patented technology to map

your hair loss pattern and then defines and measures the area you are looking to restore. “We can discuss whether you are looking for coverage or density,” Wagner said. “The process takes time and planning. If someone tells you it’s immediate, they are misleading you. It’s technically impossible to restore in one day the hair that took years to lose.” As with any surgical procedure, having accurate information will guide you to make the best possible decision. The team at MyHairTransplantMD is happy to spend time with you to discuss any questions and address any concerns you might have about hair restoration. MyHairTransplantMD is located at 2103 S. El Camino Real, Suite 201 in Oceanside.

Covenant member Fast track continues for fiber-internet project discusses possible compliance issue By Christina Macone-Greene

By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — Rancho Santa Fe Association Board President Fred Wasserman thanked a Covenant member for bringing a possible compliance issue to the attention of the board. At the monthly Rancho Santa Fe Association board meeting, longstanding Covenant member Rory Kendall addressed the matter

... I asked the Association to take it out a year ago, and it’s still there.” Rory Kendall Covenant Member

during the member input portion of the meeting. “When the Covenant was written in the 1920s, outhouses were still common in rural America. Rancho Santa Fe was very rural. There was nothing out here,” Kendall said. Kendall went on to say that the Covenant made it unambiguously clear that there would be no outhouses in Rancho Santa Fe. However, there was one exception which allowed temporary outhouses and that was when a building was under construction, he said. “Years ago the Association put in an outhouse at the Little League field. I asked the Association to

take it out a year ago, and it’s still there,” Kendall said. The Little League field is located on Rambla de las Flores. According to Kendall, behind third base, there used to be two bathrooms that were deactivated years ago. “I’m requesting the Board of Directors to please bring the Association in compliance with the Covenant and get rid of the illegal outhouse at the Little League field,” he said. It was also noted how there is currently a building on site to house a restroom facility. Rancho Santa Fe Association interim manager Christy Whalen shared that Kendall had attended the last Trails Committee Meeting in where he brought up the matter. “The committee has formed a subcommittee to look into the issue and get some recommendations,” she said. “Once the subcommittee makes recommendations to the committee, it will then go to the Board for their consideration.” Kendall then wanted to know whether this issue was going to be made into an agenda item as opposed to something procedural. According to Wasserman, he said the solution would be in how to deal with the matter and thanked Kendall for his suggestions. “We appreciate you bringing this to the attention of the board. I frankly, was not aware of this,” said Wasserman, while confirming that neither was the rest of the board.

RANCHO SANTA FE — Rancho Santa Fe Association board President Fred Wasserman told Covenant members at the monthly board meeting on Feb. 2, that bringing high-speed internet service to the Ranch remained a top priority and was not a passive activity. “I know everybody’s anxious,” he said, adding how people in the community were calling the Associa-

tion for updates. “It’s going to happen. We just have to get it done right.” Wasserman described it as a comprehensive process in terms of interviews and meetings with individuals such as potential vendors. Wasserman went on to say it was about being sensitive in terms of vetting the people who want to do business in the Covenant. Following RSF Association board member Rick

Sapp’s Technology Committee update, fellow director Mike Licosati commended Sapp on doing a fantastic job. Both Licosati and Sapp are co-chairs of the Technology Committee. “He (Sapp) really dived in and got to know all the details of this (fiber-internet project),” Licosati said. “Previously we were working with a consultant. So removing that intermediary has given us I think some

additional clarity interface directly with the providers so I’m optimistic that this process will be a two-way successful outcome.” According to the RSF Association board, vendor meetings were still ongoing. The project has been noted to be on the fast track with hopes of both direction and a potential vendor being narrowed down this spring.

Scripps Health, MD Anderson Cancer Center announce partnership REGION — Scripps Health and The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center have reached a partnership agreement to create Scripps MD Anderson Cancer Center, a comprehensive and clinically integrated cancer care program in San Diego that will provide adult cancer patients greater access to the most advanced oncology care available throughout Southern California. Through this partnership, Scripps MD Anderson is part of MD Anderson Cancer Network®, a global collaborative network of hospitals and health care systems dedicated to MD Anderson’s mission to end cancer globally. The collaboration allows Scripps to combine its expertise with MD Anderson’s knowledge and capabilities for Southern California, covering eight counties from Santa Barbara to the U.S.-Mexico border. “MD Anderson is the top-ranked cancer center in America, with unparalleled experience, resources and expertise,” said Scripps Health President and CEO Chris Van Gorder. “This exciting new alliance will give Southern Californians easy access

to MD Anderson’s proven, research-based approaches to cancer care right here in San Diego. Our partnership builds on Scripps’ history of providing exceptional cancer care to our region and will enable us to offer the best cancer treatment available anywhere, here at Scripps.” Scripps MD Anderson will be overseen by physician and administrative leaders from both organiza-

tions. It will offer patients access to MD Anderson’s world-renowned treatment protocols, standards of care, extensive clinical trials and translational research. Patients also will have access to comprehensive cancer care, including medical oncology, radiation oncology, surgical oncology, pathology, laboratory and diagnostic imaging, as well as other clinical and support services.

Close collaboration between the two organizations will be a hallmark of the new Scripps MD Anderson. MD Anderson Cancer Center will bring a multidisciplinary approach to local cancer patients and provide a new dimension of innovative care and treatment options. Through joint tumor boards, MD Anderson also will provide opinions for diagnosis and treatment. According to Margaret Row, M.D., vice president, clinical operations at MD Anderson’s Cancer Network, Scripps MD Anderson Cancer Center will bring significant benefits to the San Diego region. “Each patient diagnosed with cancer will have the advantage of not only great care from a Scripps physician, but the added benefit of MD Anderson specialists and subspecialists who will be working closely with the Scripps MD Anderson team, sharing decades of subspecialized expertise,” said Dr. Row. “We consider Scripps patients to be our patients, and linking these two outstanding programs elevates the standard of care for the entire area.”

Getting to know the work of artist Ida LaChiusa This submission is provided by Bob Coletti presenting California Art News in affiliation with the Del Mar Art Group, providing exhibit opportunities for the California Art Community.


hough trained and working as a licensed psyc hot he r ap i s t for 20 years, Ida LaChiusa is also an artist who began to draw as early as four years of age. Her mother used to joke that Ida drew more than she spoke as a little girl, preferring to communicate through images rather than words. Later on, as a young

adult in her 20s, Ida discovered the joy of painting and has been doing so ever since. During this time, Ida also began to surf and her paintings often feature her biggest passions: surfing, nature, and all things associated with the ocean lifestyle. In her work as a psychotherapist, Ida combines art as a healing modality of expression for her clients. Ida’s artwork has been featured in various venues throughout San Diego, and most recently at the Herbert B. Turner gallery featuring surf-inspired art. See more of Ida’s work at

Seafood lands in Encinitas


f there is such a thing as a perfect lunch meal in a cup, the ceviche at Oscar’s is pretty darn close. Ceviche is right up there with a poke bowl as one of my go-to healthy lunches that satisfies yet not does induce a nap craving food coma. I was only recently made aware, after running out of new preparations for an ample supply of Thrasher shark and exploring recipes, that the fish in ceviche is “cooked” by the acid in citrus juices, mainly lemons and limes yet oranges are often thrown in the mix as well. Add some onions, salt, cilantro and avocado and maybe some corn and you are good to go. I found this process fascinating and a quick, easy and delicious way to whip up a healthy seafood snack. Ceviche is popular in the coastal regions of Peru,

t first glance, the entrance to Seaside Market in Cardiff appears more a promenade of relaxed coastal beach colors and culture that have attracted the beach community for years. A large signature logo in inviting blues, a lively entrance in wood décor that links with similar looking patio and cafe seating and a multi–hued stone walkway leading to fruit and veggie stands, is as attractive, relaxing and comfortable a natural food market as you can discover. Once inside, Sinatra music, and a festival of eye-pleasing imagery of coastal beaches, fishing and surfing are presented in larger-than-life vivid photography. Another wall reveals a historic collection of surfboards and a four-panel super sized video board of special products and an outside weather station. Each department in Seaside Market is bustling, attractive and well-stocked with fresh food, health products and services, beverages, baked goods, floral and gift, meats, seafood, cuisine to go and a charcuterie of cheeses and cold cut meats.

buyer, Steve Ark, who is the architect of a vastly expanded wine department that has grown some 50 percent since the market improvement projects were put in place. The well-lit, soft circle department invites consumers to surround themselves with a world of choices, exciting to review familiar favorites as well as new discoveries. Ark has been involved with Seaside and its wine department for some 15 years and has seen it all. He has a self-assured confidence in all the names and wine countries chosen, and keeps up to date with wine trends. I asked him what was moving off the shelves these days. “Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay are still kings of the reds and whites we sell,” he revealed. “We also see a lot of Pinot Noir being sold. Argentina and New Zealand are up and

coming countries with quality wines. We get solid sales from France, Italy and Spain. When it comes to California, I personally love the wines from the Central Coast, and the Russian River district of Sonoma. I watch the wine vintages each year for any weather concerns that might lower the quality of each country’s wines. Quality of production for our inventory is first priority.” I noticed that the wines offered were in most price ranges and were stable, well marked and in easy to read categories. Ark commented, “we have a full range of customers from value to premium that know their wines and what they like. We don’t play with pricing. Our most popular wines are easy to find at eye level.

Finding the spirit of the West in Scottsdale museum hit the road e’louise ondash


e forewarned: It’s not easy to get through the doors of Western Spirit: Scottsdale’s Museum of the West. The two-year-old, award-winning museum is only a 10-minute walk from our hotel, W Scottsdale, but there are distractions on the way: distinctive public art at every turn, tasteful Southwestern landscaping bordering buildings and walkways, and the unique exterior of the museum building. These are my excuses for being several minutes late for our appointment with communications and marketing manager Rebecca Heller. My first question references the fairly tight lineup of relatively young saguaro cactuses standing guard near the museum’s front door. “What happens when they all start to sprout arms?” I ask. “Will there be room?” Probably not the kind of question Heller is used to, but she has an answer. “It’s the city’s problem,” she says with a smile. And thus one of the benefits of the unique relationship between this smallbut-mighty museum, operated by a nonprofit, and the city of Scottsdale, Arizona, which owns the building and grounds. The museum is unusual in another way, says museum director Mike Fox. While it is not an active collecting institution like most other museums in the West, “it will selectively accept … collections which help the museum fulfill its storytelling mission, while continuing to predominantly exhibit loaned collections from generous individuals and institutions.” True to this creed, the museum has only one permanent exhibit, "The A.P. Hays Spirit of the West Collection." It is impressive; Hays, a longtime resident and devotee of all things Western, began collecting in the 1940s. He has amassed more than 1,400 authentic Old West artifacts that include an amazing array of holsters, handcuffs, hats, badges, belts, posters, saddles and spurs. Many demonstrate the exquisite craftsmanship of the times. Designs from these saddles are sandblasted into building’s sidewalks and courtyards. The current temporary exhibit, “The Taos Society of Artists” (runs through April 30) is a breathless collection of privately owned works by artists who came to know, love and live in Taos, New Mexico, in the early 20th century. Society membership, by invitation only, totaled a mere 19 artists (only 12 were considered full members). The group

A.P. “Abe” Hays began collecting art and artifacts from Western States in the 1940s. Among them are these exquisite saddles, now part of the permanent collection of Western Spirit: Scottsdale’s Museum of the West. Hays became a strong advocate for preserving “the region’s often overlooked heritage of craftsmanship,” he told Paradise Valley Lifestyle magazine in 2016. Photo by Jennifer Conway

evolved only after its two founding members, on their way from Denver to Mexico, were sidetracked by a broken wagon in the rugged mountains of northern New Mexico. Mesmerized by the clear air and brilliant colors, they decided to stay put. “(This exhibit) provides a one-time opportunity to see these 80 artworks together, as they are all on loan from a number of private collections and institutions, as opposed to being a traveling show or part of the museum's permanent collection,” Heller explains. Taos Society artists favored New Mexico landscapes and stunning portraits of Native Americans and pioneers. Also part of the exhibit is a never-seen collection of photos, letters, scrapbooks and seven paintings that an early Arizona family collected on a 1924 trip to Taos. All provide vivid images of the people and New Mexico’s way of life a century ago. Opened in January 2015, Western Spirit was the fulfillment of a longtime goal of former Scottsdale Mayor Herb Drinkwater (now deceased) to establish a place to display the art and artifacts of the American West (defined as the 19

states west of the Mississippi River and adjacent areas of Canada and Mexico). In its short life, the museum has accrued several distinctive accolades, and visitors on social media have given the museum consistently high ratings, including the building itself. The contemporary architecture melds well with the desert environment and an interior Zen Garden provides a peaceful place for contemplation. The 43,000-squarefoot building also is certified LEED Gold, a designation that recognizes its environmentally conscious and sustainable design.

Concordia College choir tour comes to the Ranch RANCHO SANTA FE — The Concordia Choir from Concordia College, Moorhead, Minn., will present a concert in Rancho Santa Fe at 7:30 p.m.March 7, at Village Community Presbyterian Church, 6225 Paseo Delicias. Tickets are available online at ConcordiaTickets.com, by calling (800) 838-3006 or at the door. The 72-voice a cappella choir is conducted by René Clausen, a world-renowned conductor and composer. He is also the artistic director of the Emmy® winning Concordia Christmas Concerts seen by audiences of 18,000 each year.


rations going way back nearly 2,000 years. My introduction to Oscar’s came a few years back when Lick the Plate was on KPRI and morning show host Chris Cantore requested we meet at their Hillcrest location to record our interview. After observing the bustling lunch crowd and sampling their delicious offerings I was sold on their concept of fresh Mexican seafood and hoping for a North County location. That wish came true recently when this family-run operation that started in Pacific Beach opened their fifth location in Encinitas discreetly tucked in next to the Trader Joe’s. As of this writing, they did not have a sign out front yet so my advice is to park where you can and walk towards Pete’s Coffee, turn left and you will find it. Let’s get back to the fabulous ceviche at Oscar’s. They offer four varieties, fish, shrimp, mixed, and yellow fin tuna. The first three options are $5.25 and the yellow fin is $8.75. It’s an ample portion served with avocado and two crunchy tostadas on the side. This is a great value and you will be surprised how much they fit into that cup. We also tried the fish stew which is more like a fish soup but delicious what-



tant secretary, Wasserman shared how he was going to table those items for the next monthly board meeting. “We want to have Mr. Hall on board before he’s elected as Secretary of the Association so it’s really a


Patric Petrie, fiddle and vocals. Each band member has a strong stage presence. Hensley is so well known the band cannot announce he’s performing at small venues. The group’s live shows usually last three hours. Songs range from traditional Irish reels and fast-paced jigs, to twists on modern folk music of the Waterboys, Sawhorse and Mumford and Sons, and original pieces. “We take tunes we love and enjoy the hell out of them,” Lally said.

Clausen has written more than 100 commissioned compositions for ensembles across the world including the St. Olaf Choir and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. On the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 national tragedy he conducted his composition “MEMORIAL” in New York’s Lincoln Center — a piece originally commissioned by the American Choral Director’s Association.

ever you want to call it. The small is only $1.99 and is a great way to sample it and a perfect side or starter to your meal. They also offer a larger version for $7.99. I’d also heard raves about the smoked fish at Oscar’s so gave that a try in taco form and that was another winner. We combined that with the skirt steak taco that was tender and delicious as well. I should note that we also discovered a new favorite beverage to go with Mexican food called Batch Craft Soda that they had in fountain form and offered free refills. I went with the Root Beer and it was as good as I’ve had. I will be exploring all the flavor options from this Orange County based company very soon. They also offer fresh fruit water, Jarritos Mexican soda and of course Mexican Coke. I will be back very soon to explore the rest of the menu at Oscar’s, as there is a lot more to try. They have three breakfast options including a burrito, torta, and plate served with eggs, cheese, potatoes and avocado. Then pick your protein of smoked fish, bacon, ham, steak, or chorizo. Las Botanas loosely translates into appetizers or platters and Oscar’s offers cucarachas (15 fried shrimp with shell on) covered in a blend of spicy salsas and fresh limejuice for $10.99. There is also a garden sea-

food salad with your choice of fresh grilled fish, shrimp or octopus upon availability and its market priced based on the seafood. There is also a grilled fish option in salad, taco, flour tortilla, torta or plate and again this is market priced. Tortas come with smoked fish, spicy shrimp, or skirt steak or the fisherman’s torta with a seafood mix in between the torta bread. The sides include the previously mentioned fish stew, quesadilla, bean and cheese on flour tortilla, pinto beans and rice. Tacos include seven seafood and meat options and I’ve heard that the battered fish tacos are right up there with San Diego’s best. The bottom line is that in an area already crowded with taco joints, Oscar’s has a style all it’s own that is worth exploring and adding to your list of options when fresh Mexican with a seafood emphasis is what you are craving. Oscar’s Mexican Seafood is located at 115 N. El Camino Real. Call (760) 487-5778 or go online Oscarsmexicanseafood.com.

procedural issue,” he said. Wasserman went on to say that Whalen is currently the Secretary and would remain in that role until the election at the subsequent March board meeting. A Covenant member in the audience wanted to know why this motion would be tabled since the

bylaws were very explicit in that the Association manger was the Secretary. Wasserman said the member’s point was well taken and said it was best called a formality. “I think even though the bylaws state that I think the board should formalize it,” Wasserman said.

Lally said there is a close bond between the band and the audience during a show. Part of that kinship is due to traditional tunes in the mix. Part is due to the expertise and on-stage ease of band members. “There isn’t a lot of ego related to Irish music, we’re interpreting tunes that have been around a very long time,” Lally said. Their years of experience playing before thousands of audiences also show in the music. “We’ve been around for a while, we’ve learned to negotiate a little bit,” Lally said.

The awards ceremony next month brings together top local bands, and serves as the primary fundraiser for the Guitars for Schools Program. The program provides guitars to elementary through high school students through a partnership of the San Diego Music Foundation and Taylor Guitars of El Cajon. The 26th San Diego Music Awards will be held at the House of Blues San Diego March 21. Music fans can vote online for their favorite bands through Feb. 26 at sandiegomusicawards.com/ nominees.

cial brands and vintages that our customers appreciate greatly.” Seaside Market has a famous Burgundy Pepper Tri Tip, infused with a secret tumbling process that only Seaside presents. At $16.99 a pound, it quickly sells out daily. I put the question to Ark about pairing it with wine. “I would recommend a big red like a Zinfandel or a Syrah,” he offered. Moving closer to me and pointing to an Oregon Pinot Noir with a decidedly Burgundy flavor, his personal choice became evident. “But that’s the one I would have with it,” he said.

In San Francisco, for example, homeowners can apply for “sidewalk landscaping permit” that streamlines the process of replacing excess concrete pavement in the public right of way with trees, plants and other substitutes that absorb rainwater. Such passive measures help filter runoff before it reaches the stormwater system, helping clean out containments and stopping them before they reach the ocean and our watersheds. The permitting application, which is only one page long and about $300

the oversized target. “I thought we ought to be able to do something fun with that,” Spacciapolli said. “Golf is supposed to be fun, right?” Perez’s other fundraiser, the 10th annual Operation Game On Golf Classic, will be held Aug. 14 at Fairbanks Ranch Country Club.

in fees, comes with an additional easy-to-read information sheet and step-bystep instructions, a rarity in the world of building-industry bureaucracy. The contrast to San Diego is striking. As it stands today, removing sidewalk and driveway pavement on a private single family home may run more than $2,000 in total fees, and requires onerous steps to complete. The city lacks a streamlined over-thecounter process as well as related easy-to-find information on its website. I probably wouldn’t rip out my driveway anytime soon, but I could certainly see some of my neighbors making the switch. They’ve mostly re-

placed their front lawns with wood chips and xeriscaping, and I could see permeable pavers being a complimentary aesthetic touch. Regardless, there’s no reason local government should stymie urbanists and everyday residents from making meaningful community improvements. Small business owners, residents, beachgoers and our marine life all stand to benefit from a streamlined sidewalk landscaping process in North County cities. Why not take steps to explore what we can do together to solve regional problems? Vince Vasquez is an urbanist and economist based in Torrey Pines. He is a Carlsbad resident.
