Jaffe reflects on his first year with the RSF School District By Christina Macone-Greene
RANCHO SANTA FE — While the school year has officially ended, Superintendent David Jaffe relishes on an outstanding first year with R. Roger Rowe and looks forward to the ways he can make 20172018 even better. When Jaffe became superintendent in August 2016, he already knew he’d be impressed with the Rancho Santa Fe School District. However, it wasn’t until he served his role that the district exceeded his expectations. The environment of the first year afforded Jaffe the chance to get to know a whole new group of people, understand what inspires them and then find ways to identify how he could help support the organization. Jaffe calls the Rancho Santa Fe School District incredibly special. The district has given Jaffe the opportunity to serve in a leadership capacity while being a part of the community. When he stepped into his role last summer, he was already aware how well the Rancho Santa Fe District performed academically. “I didn’t have the intention to come in and change things around immediately. It was about spending a
year’s time to get to know the organization, its history and then defining the direction that we go,” Jaffe said. “What I’ve come to find in this role is that I have an incredibly talented staff, and I’d like to give them the opportunity to grow in the work that they do. I have a supportive parent population that will do really anything for this school.” While working to provide the best education for R. Roger Rowe children, Jaffe noted how imperative it was to create a culture where the students felt comfortable and were a part of it. Looking ahead, Jaffe shared that he wants the stakeholders in the school to be part of a self-evaluation process starting in the fall, which will include the creation of action plans and action goals regarding instruction such as math and the language arts curriculums. “When we go through and evaluate our programs, and we set a direction in the course and moving forward, it’s that we do it together,” he said. “I’m really excited about engaging our community in the process and developing that community culture where parents and teachers feel comfortable working to-

gether. “For those parents whose children are starting their kindergarten education at R. Roger Rowe, and it’s their first child through education, take a deep breath, trust the school to help guide you, and be involved. And for those who are coming from other places, regardless of where they
s ’ a c i r e Am h oice C
come from and regardless of which year they come, the moment they step onto the campus, they’re part of our school, and they’re part of the family here.” While that is still weeks away, Jaffe said he wants everyone to take the summer to rejuvenate, be a family and enjoy each other.
ENCINITAS — Neighbors living in the New Encinitas communities along Willowspring Drive and Cerro Street who have for years implored the council to slow traffic along the streets will at long last receive the relief. The City Council voted unanimously on June 28 to install 47 speed-slowing devices known as “speed cushions” along the two busy neighborhood streets, part of a pilot program the city hopes will allow it to respond faster to community calls for traffic calming. “This pilot program is the best option towards trying to find a solution,” Councilman Joe Mosca said. Several neighbors came to the council meeting to urge the council to approve the project, which was on the consent calendar agenda — a list of items that the council typically approves without discussion. Many of the neighbors had been fighting for traffic calming since as early as 2011, when they formally started the city’s Neighborhood Traffic Management Program process. According to city information, drivers heavily use Cerro and Willowspring as cut-through streets to avoid
traffic on El Camino Real and Encinitas Boulevard and travel at speeds much faster than the 25-miles-perhour neighborhood speed limits. More than 2,580 cars traverse Cerro at an average of 37 miles per hour each day, and 4,000 drivers use Willowspring traveling at speeds more than 35 miles per hour. The city’s traffic management plan requires 67 percent of an effected neighborhood to endorse a traffic-calming plan by signing the petition in support of it. In the case of the Willowspring-Cerro traffic fix, that meant 67 percent of 1,345 parcel owners — a daunting task for proponents. They failed, as most of the parcel owners did not respond to the petitions circulated. The approved plan calls for the city to install the speed cushions along both streets and an all-way stop sign at the intersection of both streets. According to the staff report, the plan will cost about $90,000 and be put in place by February. City staff will conduct traffic studies along both streets and several adjacent streets three months and six months after the installation to determine the plan’s effectiveness.

Newsom loses ‘sure thing’ standing California focus By Thomas D. Elias
Poll shows San Diegans value water for life By Mark Muir
As we enter the peak water-use months of summer and early fall, it’s worth taking a moment to assess the value of this resource that is often taken for granted. After all, water makes everything possible in this semi-arid region, from baseball fields and microbrews to biotech and backyard gardens. We recently asked 1,000 county residents what they thought about the value of water as part of the San Diego County Water Authority’s long-running series of public opinion polls. On an unaided basis, two-thirds of respondents (67 percent) said they considered water a good or excellent value. That’s pretty impressive – but it gets better. A follow-up question asked respondents to estimate how much, on average, municipal tap water costs per gallon in the San Diego region. A majority (53 percent) is unsure; 34 percent believe it costs more than 26 cents per gallon. After being told that the true retail cost of municipal tap water in the San Diego region is about a penny per gallon, the number of respondents who perceive it be an excellent or good value increased to 76 percent. Indeed, after all these years helping to safeguard the region’s water supplies, I still find it amazing that we can deliver safe and reliable water supplies at such a modest cost even though we live at the literal end of the pipeline in a region with few natural water resources. That’s a testament to foresight and perseverance of past and current water agency leaders and employees who have developed world-class water fa-

cilities for our region. Our latest public opinion poll shows that San Diegans strongly support what the Water Authority and its 24 member agencies have done. For instance, there continues to be overwhelming community approval of the Water Authority’s regional water supply diversification strategy, which includes securing independent supplies from the Colorado River, helping to develop the nation’s largest seawater desalination plant, and supporting efforts by our member agencies to develop potable reuse. Nearly eight in 10 respondents (79 percent) support that strategy. It’s also telling that the county’s water supply is widely seen as reliable, with 83 percent of respondents characterizing it as somewhat or very reliable. Additionally, 80 percent of respondents have a positive outlook on San Diego County’s water supply, believing it is improving (41
percent) or holding steady (39 percent). And I’m pleased to report significant community support for using water efficiently, with 81 percent of respondents strongly or moderately agreeing that doing so is their civic duty. More than nine in 10 respondents (92 percent) predict they will use less (33 percent) or about the same (59 percent) volume of water in 2017 as they did in 2016, even though drought conditions are over for the time being. That tells me we are on the right track in San Diego County – investing in longterm water supply reliability while at the same time making the most of every drop. To learn more about the Water Authority’s 2017 public opinion poll, go to sdcwa.org. Mark Muir chairs the Board of Directors of the San Diego County Water Authority.
For a long time, it seemed Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom’s unspoken (at least publicly) agreement with Sen. Kamala Harris would bear the fruit he intended — inauguration about 17 months from now as governor of California. The early-2015 understanding between the two San Francisco Democrats, both with campaigns managed by the same San Francisco political consulting firm, was this: To avoid a brutal fight over the Senate seat being vacated by the retiring Barbara Boxer, Newsom would stay out of the 2016 Senate race and concentrate on running for governor two years later. And so, with help from the SCN Strategies firm headed by longtime San Francisco consultant Ace Smith, Harris won Boxer’s old seat in a cakewalk. Meanwhile, Newsom took the early lead in the run for governor, becoming the first to declare his candidacy, raising millions of early dollars and running far ahead of everyone else in the first polls. Newsom hoped to make his move to the governor’s office seem as inevitable as Harris’ accession from San Francisco district attorney to state attorney general to the Senate. Essentially, he hoped to scare away most serious competition just as Harris did. The former San Francisco mayor began issuing press releases cum fundraising appeals every time any significant news story occurred. His anti-Donald Trump posts are as frequent as they are predicable. Early polls showed him with double-digit leads over all other potential candidates, emphasis on the “potential,” because no one else declared for the race until this spring. But now several others have. They are out gathering both money and support — apparently at least in part at Newsom’s expense. In fact, anytime he looks back these days, Newsom sees someone gaining on him. Most prominent is former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. Like Newsom, Villaraigosa must overcome a history of womanizing, but with previous candidates like President Trump and ex-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger winning office despite their own similar peccadillos, this may not prove as big a problem as it might have in previous eras. In this year’s first version of the UC Berkeley Institute of Governmental Stud-
ies poll, successor to the usually reliable Field Poll, Newsom ran 11 points ahead of Villaraigosa, with 28 percent support to Villaraigosa’s second-place 11. Just two months later, in May, Villaraigosa had closed that gap to a mere five points, with Newsom still leading, but by only 22 percent to 17. In short, Villaraigosa, not yet in hyperactive campaign mode and still holding onto the bulk of his campaign cash, gained as much backing as was lost by the very active Newsom, who saw a loss of almost onefourth of his prior support. State Treasurer John Chiang, a former two-term state controller, had 5 percent in both polls, holding steady. Republican businessman John Cox’s backing dropped by half, from 18 percent to 9, perhaps because his support for an initiative creating a 12,000-member state Legislature received significant publicity in the interim. Many GOP voters moved over to support the new candidacy of former Republican Assemblyman David Hadley of Torrance, who drew 8 percent. It’s uncertain how the early-summer entry of conservative Republican Orange County Assemblyman and surfer Travis Allen might affect this race. Cox and Hadley are little known to most voters, so the best guess is that their total of about 17 percent poll support consisted of solid Republicans determined not to vote for a Democrat so long as any GOP hopeful is still breathing. Drawing even less support was Democratic former state Schools Superintendent Delaine Eastin. Put her voters into the Villaraigosa column, where they could end up if she eventually sees she has little chance and pulls out, and the race is almost even at the top level. This picture could change a lot when Chiang begins spending the millions he’s raised so far, but no one knows whether he will take support from either Newsom or Villaraigosa, or win over some of the undecided, who currently make up nearly 30 percent of voters. It’s far too early to call Newsom’s scarethem-off strategy a bust. But so far, no one looks intimidated. So unless Republican San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer gets in, prospects are for a very tight primary race likely to produce a Democrats-only runoff election next fall.

Top awards presented to RSF players RANCHO SANTA FE — Graduates and former players for the Rancho Santa Fe Attack Soccer were honored at the R. Roger Rowe School in the Performing Arts Center. On hand to recognize these players were Director of Coaching Malcolm Tovey and Assistant Director of Coaching Nate Hetherington. Those being honored were recognized for their commitment to the club in that they played competitively for Attack for a minimum of five consecutive years. At the reception, players who had been with the club as long as 11 consecutive years were given special plaques commemorating their achievement. “In this diverse environment where there are
many soccer organizations, having this many who have remained faithful to the club shows that Attack has been able to fulfill their goal of developing players and providing them with the opportunity to play at the highest level,” said Tovey. Many of the players, both graduating and returning, are continuing their soccer career playing at the collegiate level. “This was Attack’s first annual awards event, so we had some catching up to do,” said Marilee Pacelli, director of League Operations. “In addition to our graduating class of seniors, we honored past graduates going back to 2015.” Two other scholarship awards were also given at the event which brought together players, their
families and their past coaches. The Boyd N Lyon Memorial Scholarship was given to 2017 San Dieguito Academy senior Jonathan Sabouri. Sabouri will be attending the University of California San Diego and playing for the Tritons this fall. The winners of the Saul Resendiz Scholarship are Orange Glen High School grads Robert Guerrero Escobedo and David Linares. The scholarship was established by Resendiz’s family in memory of Saul, who played with Attack for nine years.

‘Walkability’ of El Camino Real assessed By Aaron Burgin
ENCINITAS — A group of more than two dozen people gathered at noon on June 27 for a walk along El Camino Real. The June 27 walk was not for leisure — the Encinitas City Council and various stakeholders were on what is known as a “walk audit,” a tour of the street to assess how accessible it is for pedestrians and bicyclists. The information gathered and the subsequent presentation that evening could eventually pave the way for an overhaul of the city’s primary north-south thoroughfare, on which more than 40,000 vehicles travel per day. “For me, it was an excellent afternoon,” said Deputy Mayor Tony Kranz, who has been a chief advocate for improved bicycle and pedestrian circulation throughout the city. “I looked down at my Fitbit and it said I walked 7,000 steps, and while I was hoping it would get to 10,000 steps, they were all very
important steps.” Currently, the 2-mile stretch between Leucadia and Encinitas boulevards is a hodgepodge of strip shopping centers that don’t connect, and a street profile that ranges from unfriendly to perilous for motorists, city officials said. Consultant Dan Burden, the director of innovation and inspiration at Blue Zones — a firm that has led several pedestrian-centric street transformations — debriefed the council on the various tools at the city’s disposal to change the street. “I think you are going to become a model for the entire region, and I’m excited that you are taking these steps,” Burden said. Some of these suggestions could be implemented quickly, such as colorized bike lanes, setting a target speed along the street of 35 miles per hour and adding mid-block crossings with signals that alert motorists of the presence of pedestrians. Others, however, would take longer pro-
cesses and buy-in from property owners along the stretch, including creating pedestrian connections between the various shopping centers, linkages between the centers and neighborhoods, expanding sidewalks for added tree plantings, changing the city code to include more mixed-use designations along El Camino Real and creating incentives for property owners to transform their properties accordingly. Burden told the council that making the changes would not only make the street safer for non-motorists, but would create a much more inviting destination for shoppers coming on all modes of transportation — which would be a boon for the businesses. The council members voiced their commitment to addressing some of the short-term issues, such as additions to the city code that would accommodate pedestrian connections of the centers and wider sidewalks as development comes in.

The NAD Treatment Center helps patients recover from addiction. Courtesy photo
Battling the opioid epidemic — the all-natural way COAST CITIES — Adam Goodson, a San Diego native, drives from Los Angeles to the NAD Treatment Center, nestled in the heart of Hillcrest, to help patients recover from addiction. He specializes in neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP), which unlocks the subconscious patterns and beliefs that trap people in the addiction cycle. During Goodson’s last visit to the NAD Treatment Center, he gave “Ashley,” a patient at the time, four sessions of NLP. Motivated to start a new chapter in sobriety, Ashley traveled all the way from Alaska, not just to help herself, but to be a better mother for her children waiting back home. After trying several different rehabilitation and detoxification programs, she said that she never felt as good as she did from the NAD treatment and has had no reason to use again. “I think the combination of that (NLP) and the NAD takes it to another level,” said Ashley on her ninth day of NAD therapy. “NLP is working with your subconscious and that’s where we keep a lot of our suppressed thoughts.” For many who are caught in the whirlpool of substance abuse, releasing the shame and guilt of using, let alone facing the symptoms of withdrawal, is like trying to sail in a hurricane. Lightning bolts of physical pain and waves of emotional turmoil come from all directions and there is no light to fight your way out. Even after the waters have calmed and the wind has died, it’s difficult to navigate how to move forward. For younger opioid users, the storm is all they know. The uncertainty of a fresh start and adopting a new lifestyle is a daunting fear. A weight so heavy on your chest it crushes your insides and physically prevents you from taking a step forward. The best first step to recovery starts with the innovative approach toward addiction by combining
the most effective tools for detoxification and mental health. Medical Director of the NAD Treatment Center, Phillip Milgram, MD, asserts that NLP, when combined with all-natural NAD therapy, is an effective tool to help break the thought patterns surrounding addiction and to help instill healthier habits. “The NAD therapy addresses the physical symptoms of addiction by detoxing the patient naturally with minimal side effects and reduced cravings, whereas NLP reassigns meaning and feelings toward opioids, creating a fresh start for the younger generation to rebuild their life free from chemical dependence,” explained Dr. Milgram. Goodson is a trusted and welcome friend at the NAD Treatment Center. Tom Ingoglia, business director of the NAD Treatment Center, and Goodson started their NLP journey together by training under the same mentors. They understand that NLP is not the only therapy available to help those confined by their subconscious programming, but they truly believe it is the best option out there. “Everyone has subconscious behavioral patterns that they often are unaware of,” Goodson said. “NLP can either erase the pattern or install a new one for the benefit of the individual.” Providing tools to fight the national opioid epidemic is a mission Goodson and the NAD Treatment Center professionals have taken on themselves. Witnessing individuals walk up from a state of survival to a state of thriving is the fuel that these innovators live off of. To better serve the San Diego community, the NAD Treatment Center is offering $1,000 off when you sign up for the NAD Treatment Center Detox Method TM as a special offer lasting through the end of summer. Please visit www.nadtreatmentcenter. com for more information, or call 1-844-NAD-PLUS.

The home automation trend gains in popularity According to a 2016 survey, home automation - such as home entry notifications and video monitoring- is gaining in popularity among parents. Today, nearly one in four parents either uses a home automation system or plans to within one year. The use of technology has become so prevalent that parents prefer using it to check on what’s happening at home, rather than friends or neighbors. According to survey results, 73% of parents rely on texting to check in with teens and tweens who are home alone at least once or twice a month; 71% rely on phone calls, and only 18% rely on a friend or neighbor. Home automation provides dependable, real-time, unfiltered information about what’s happening at home. For parents, it can provide peace of mind, especially during the summer months when kids are home alone. Parents may not realize the extent to which they are able to automate their home. WITH COX HOMELIFE YOU ARE ABLE TO: • Lock and unlock doors from a keypad or mobile app; • Detect carbon monoxide and smoke; • See what’s happening at home even when you are not there using secure video monitoring via a smart phone;
• Take a picture when the front door opens, or send a text message if the door does not open between certain times you expect your child to come home; • Turn off small appliances remotely; • Arm and disarm your system remotely; • Turn lights on and off remotely. According to those
surveyed, certain technologies are considered “must haves” for smart home technology: • Emergency alert, 89% • Home alarm control, 84% • Entry and lock control, 81% Furthermore, four out of five parents surveyed are comfortable leaving teens and tweens home alone,
and technology helps ease concerns. Home automation isn’t just for busy parents. Frequent travelers, pet lovers, energy conscious consumers and budget managers will all find technology brings cost savings, peace of mind, remote monitoring and much more. For more information visit cox.com/homelife.

Local author releases ‘political thriller’ By Bianca Kaplanek
SOLANA BEACH — Although her debut novel was 10 years in the making, author Jenny D. Williams said she is “grateful” it took that long. “If I had tried earlier it wouldn’t have resulted in a work I’m proud of,” said Williams, a 2000 graduate of Torrey Pines High School who grew up in Solana Beach. “The Atlas of Forgotten Places,” scheduled for release July 11, was inspired by her time spent in wartorn Northern Uganda more than a decade ago. The loosely based story line began unknowingly after she graduated from the University of California Berkeley. Williams quit her job working for a book publisher in San Francisco and she and her then-boyfriend bought one-way tickets to Africa with plans to “travel until our money ran out,” she said. When that happened, the couple parted ways. Williams remained in Uganda and worked for six months as a volunteer with the Lutheran World Federation in Kitgum helping internally displaced people living in government camps. She interviewed area residents and wrote human interest stories and grant applications.
“I was just really moved by the people I was meeting,” Williams said. “I felt very strongly that these were stories that were not being told on a large scale.” That was about a dozen years ago, during peace negotiations in the midst of a lengthy civil war. “I was there during a time of relative peace,” she said. “But it was clear that two decades of war devastated the region socially and economically. I saw what happens when the fighting stops. That sort of became the seed of inspiration for the novel.” Set against the backdrop of ivory smuggling and the Ugandan civil war, “The Atlas of Forgotten Places” is a story about two women from different worlds who set out to save loved ones. The story starts with a volunteer who goes missing. Some events in the novel, which Williams describes as a “political thriller,” did take place. “I wanted to tell a really good story that would give the reader a reason to want to turn the page,” she said. Williams, 34, now lives in Seattle with her husband and dog and works for Google. She holds a master’s degree from Brooklyn College in New York and has been published in magazines and

anthologies. Early in her writing career she said she heard “horror stories that it took 10 years or more to write a novel.” “Sometimes it’s a good thing when something takes a while to do,” she said. “I’m grateful this took so long.” Williams is scheduled to appear at the Del Mar Library for a discussion and book signing at 1:30 p.m. July 29.

RSF Art Guild’s library exhibit Mark Lindsay can still entertain an audience
By Christina Macone-Greene
RANCHO SANTA FE — Rancho Santa Fe Library visitors are in for a visual treat. Framing the media room is artwork created by members of the Rancho Santa Fe Art Guild. This rotating exhibit aims to inspire curiosity and support an artistic community. According to the co-president of the RSF Art Guild, Alison Harding, their organization was contacted and invited by Susan Appleby of the RSF Library Guild to display their artwork. Years ago, the Art Guild exhibited their artwork at the library. “Susan was instrumental in having us return,” Harding said. “The artists that show are the (RSF Art Guild) members, and the members are made up of Rancho Santa Fe residents and outlying communities.” Appleby said she is delighted to have the Art Guild be part of the library community. The current exhibit highlights 14 artists with 22 pieces of artwork including sculptures, oil and water color paintings. Artists features in the June/July exhibit are Terry Alden, Carole Dowling, Francesca Filanc, Annette Fussell,

Jennifer Hurley, Cindy Klong, Nancy McTigue, Adela Peterson, Dale Steffen, Gale Summerfield, Margot Wallace and Cathy Wessels. New exhibits rotate every two months with the next show and reception slated for Aug. 3. While the Art Guild is delighted to have an exhibit at the library, Harding shared that their organiza-

tion is additionally searching for a new gallery to call home. Harding pointed out that one of the goals of the Art Guild, even from its inception, was to bring the visual arts to the community. While this enhances the community, the children who now visit the library are also exposed to the guild’s artwork. And by bringing it to the library
this also enhances the community. “They say a picture is worth a thousand words,” Harding said. “When we read, we’re developing images in our mind — when we paint, we’re conjuring words to understand it. At the Rancho Santa Fe Library’s charming adobe style building, we have an opportunity to house paintings and books together.”
By summer 1961, Mark Lindsay had already gotten a first taste of pop music success when “Like, Long Hair,” an instrumental song by his band, Paul Revere & The Raiders, had become a big hit in the Northwest United States and climbed into the top 30 nationally. What Lindsay didn’t have at that point was much of a grasp on live performance. That’s when he got a lesson that has served him well in a career that has gone on to last more than 50 years. His teacher, so to speak, was none other than Leon Russell. With the success of “Like, Long Hair,” Paul Revere & The Raiders were getting offers to tour, but the group was on hiatus while keyboardist Paul Revere was doing military service. So Lindsay, the Raiders’ lead singer, and the Raiders’ record label hatched a plan to hire some Los Angeles session players and tour as Paul Revere’s Raiders. “It was the best experience I could have ever had because I was this green kid from Idaho, probably 18 or 19 then,” Lindsay said.

“One of our first gigs was in, I think, Scottsbluff, Nebraska, somewhere in Nebraska.” The show was not going well, and after finishing a first set, Lindsay came off stage frustrated. That’s when keyboardist Russell stepped up. “At intermission, I go back and go ‘Man, this is a tough crowd. I don’t know what to do,’” Lindsay said. “Leon says ‘Look kid, when we go back after this, just give me five minutes and I’ll TURN TO LINDSAY ON 16

Council OKs specific plan for bluff-top resort By Bianca Kaplanek
DEL MAR — Council members at the June 19 meeting approved the use of a specific plan for the development of an approximately 16-acre oceanfront parcel above North Beach. Robert Green Company and Zephyr Partners, two Encinitas-based developers, are planning to transform the residential property into a bluff-top resort that will include branded villas, restaurants, meeting space, a public access park and walking trails. The Lazier family that owns the property at 929 Border Ave. was in the process of subdividing its 6.2 acres into five single-family residential lots. Zephyr cofounder Brad Termini said when he was approached by a broker to buy and develop that parcel he felt it would be “an absolute shame” to build houses and keep the site closed to the public, as it has been for nearly a century. He teamed up with Green, a luxury hotel developer, and the two are in a long-term agreement to buy the Lazier property, one lot to the north and another to the south. Because the parcels must be rezoned, several legislative changes and discretionary permits must be approved. Land use modifications require community plan and local coastal program

amendments and a new zoning map. All three actions mandate action by the Planning Commission, City Council and California Coastal Commission and are subject to environmental review. Also needed are Design Review Board, coastal development and land conservation permits. Zoning changes can be made using one of two methods. A sequential process would initially create a new zoning chapter that could not contain any devi-
ations or assess public benefits. A specific plan, which creates a special set of development standards for a particular area, encompasses all the legislative actions and regulatory development parameters and allows the public benefit of the project to be addressed. The developers have agreed to develop and maintain an interactive website with project information, create a contact list to notify all interested parties, hold informal meetings

with neighbors and stakeholders and conduct three public workshops. The latter would be in addition to the one mandated citizens’ participation program (CPP) meeting. Zephyr and Green held a CPP event May 6 and another May 13, although the second was not required. Additionally, interim presentations to the Planning Commission and Design Review Board are proposed to elicit early feedback during the process. The city is in the process of updating its policy for specific plans, but the developers sought approval before the changes are adopted because environmental reviews will require data collection during the San Diego County Fair and summer thoroughbred race
meet and they didn’t want to wait until 2018 to gather that information. “Clearly a specific plan is the right way to process a proposal of this scope and magnitude,” Councilman Dwight Worden said. Councilman Dave Druker, who opposed the approval in the 4-1 vote, disagreed. He said an ad hoc committee of residents should be formed and a public vote should be required not only for Del Mar Resort, as this project is being called, but for all large developments. “I believe that it’s important that we do have a citizens’ committee involved in this,” Druker said. “This is a major project. This is going to have major impact on the city, major impact on Solana Beach.” He said having an advi-
sory committee to guide the process “would propel the developer and the city to do a much better job and much quicker job.” “I also believe this should go to a vote of the people,” he added. “This is ... changing residential to commercial. If it’s a good project it will sail through. If it’s a bad project it will not. ... That’s the way Del Mar works.” Del Mar used the specific plan process for L’Auberge Del Mar, Del Mar Plaza, Garden Del Mar and the ongoing Watermark Del Mar development. Druker said voters approved the first two, but by narrow margins, because “they were kind of done ... in the backroom.” Garden Del Mar, which was never built, “passed overwhelmingly because it was not done in a backroom environment,” Druker said. “It was done in front of the public.” After the project, proposed on an old gas station site on the corner of Camino del Mar and 10th Street, was approved in the 2008 election, a steering committee was formed to work with the developer. Druker blamed the lack of that type of advisory group for the slow progress of Watermark, a multifamily project slated for a vacant lot at the intersection of Jimmy Durante Boulevard and San Dieguito Drive. “This is one of the tools that we need to have in our quiver so that we can ... have a whole lot better input beyond Planning Commission and CPP,” Druker said. His colleagues disagreed. “I think that we have a good process of going through Planning (Commission), going through DRB, going through council with lots of opportunities for outreach along the way,” Councilwoman Ellie Haviland said. Worden said the idea of setting up a task force has merit but might not apply in every case. He said the city could add the requirement on a case-by-case basis. “I don’t think we need to impose one on each specific plan,” he said. Del Mar’s former city attorney, Worden also questioned the legality of adopting a policy that would require a vote for every development. Mayor Terry Sinnott agreed Druker’s suggestions are tools the council could use. “I would not think it’s necessary to make it a policy because ... I don’t think we should be continually expecting every project to do this kind of approach,” he said. But Druker stood his ground. “These projects are very sensitive to many of the people in Del Mar,” he said. “The concept of having a group of people that are vetting this on a regular basis is important, especially if it’s a major project.”

Three Italian wine/dines you need to know in Las Vegas taste of wine frank mangio
ine knows no boundaries and makes no judgments or apologies. Reminds me of the three Italian restaurants I visited recently in Las Vegas. These happy-go-lucky eating places preserve the “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil” lifestyle in this town, where luck and good times are where it’s at. Hoping some luck would come my way, I attended a big “Money” convention at Caesars Palace, which had recently built a $550 million High Roll-
er observation wheel that goes 500 feet in the air like a Ferris wheel. The entire entertainment center is called THE LINQ and it’s directly across from Caesars Palace, with more than 40 shops and restaurants. Caesars is finally crawling out of bankruptcy dating back to the great recession and Vegas is now making more money than it did before the great recession hit in 2008. Gaming is still the largest revenue source, but hotel rooms, entertainment and restaurants are the fastest growth machine these days. Our three Italian restaurants depict the directions that restaurants with great wine lists seem to be going in Vegas: “legendary” with memories of early-day Vegas history; “authentic,” where they establish a notable reputation
in another city; and “celebrity,” when a big-name chef or entertainer spends untold millions on a restaurant in a big-name hotel. The “traditional” is Italian dining legend Piero’s, for nearly 40 years the hangout for the “Rat Pack” and modern day wannabe’s. The Rat Pack original member was Frank Sinatra and his pals like Dean Martin and Sammy Davis. Founder Freddie Glusman fit right in with the “local color,” a rich collection of Italian names or “nicknames.” He set up Piero’s into six separate rooms, which gave some of his favorite customers a certain needed privacy. “No one gets bothered in our restaurant,” he said. “I don’t care who the celebrity is or what they TURN TO TASTE OF WINE ON 23

RANCHO SANTA FE — Personal chef Jessica Leibovich championed a “Healthy Eating Made Easy” lecture at the RSF Senior Center on June 16. Before the class began, attendees were in for a treat by sampling Leibovich’s quinoa salad with almonds and raisins. Leibovich is a nutritional chef and a coach. She was quick to point out that she does not diagnose people, but she’s very knowledgeable about health issues. “So, what I do is I take the information you’ve received from your doctor(s), and then I tailor it into a lifestyle plan,” she said. Part of this is working within one’s budget, assessing the types of grocery stores in the area, and learning what someone likes as far as meals types as well as the likings of other family members in the household. “So, by looking at all that information, I’m very intuitive, and I can come up with a clear strategy that’s specific to that person because what works for one person is not going to work for another,” she said. “We’re not the same, and we don’t have the same life.” Her goal at the Senior Center was to simplify and clarify healthy eating. According to Leibovich, there are many misconceptions so her mission was to produce easy solutions that would become a lifestyle as opposed to a challenge or an effort. “If you have a very good strategy that’s clear and concise, it’s less work, less money and more enjoyable than it is to go out constantly, order takeout or search for your meals,” she said.

It comes down to finding out what works for someone based on their lifestyle as well as their health challenges. One way to do this was to simplify things. “Sometimes we make things more complicated, and we don’t need to be so excited about every single meal,” she said. “Getting a little bit more boring with our routine is actually good for our health.” Leibovich shared that every meal is not the last meal — and all dishes don’t always have to be amazing. Some meals should be considered for the sole purpose of nourishment, she said. Yes, dishes can taste good, but they don’t necessarily need to be the best meals of one’s life each time. With this mindset, digestion can be regulated, cravings minimized and energy increased. “And then when we do have a special meal, it’s more fun,” she said. “It means more.” During her talk, planning meals in advance was advised. And this also included when someone was out of town. With summer vacations underway, many rentals offer kitchens which is good news.

He grabs the mike and says ‘Hey kids, you want to (expletive) rock and roll or what!?’ This is Nebraska. Their jaws drop and they went ‘Yeah.’ And Leon Russell put on a seminar for five minutes on how to rock and roll. He did Jerry Lee (Lewis), he did Little Richard, just was screaming. For five minutes, I watched a man, really a showman, a real showman on stage.” When Revere returned from service in 1962, Lindsay knew what he wanted to do. “When we got back together in Portland, Oregon, and started the band again, I said ‘Look, we can’t just be a band,” Lindsay explained. “There are a lot of bands. We have to be the best show band that there is. We have to have something different. I would try to do something different and crazy and insane every night, whether it was hanging from the rafters, hang-
ing upside down or have a cord made for my microphone that was hundreds of feet where I could walk into the bathroom and take a leak, anything just to be different.” At age 75, Lindsay doesn’t swing from the rafters these days, but he can still entertain an audience. And that’s what he’s doing this summer as he joins the “50 Summers of Love” tour. Lindsay’s set figures to be heavy on the hits he sang with Paul Revere & The Raiders, as well as a few tunes from his solo career. “We’re doing ‘Arizona,’ ‘Just Like Me,’ ‘Steppin’ Out,’ ‘Good Thing,’ ‘Indian Reservation’ and Kicks,’ you know, just kind of the cream of the crop, and it works really well,” Lindsay said. Those songs, among others, coupled with a stint in the mid-1960s as the house band on Dick Clark’s popular weekday television series, “Where the Action Is,” turned Paul Revere & The Raiders into major stars who played to frenzied crowds at the height of their success.

DEL MAR — During each day of the San Diego County Fair, tens of thousands of visitors see animals, food, music acts and other exhibits. They also hear, smell, taste and feel some fair activities, and on June 23 the Braille Institute San Diego took 14 students on a field trip to the county fair. “The students had a really great time and it was
a beautiful day for it,” said Darlene Miller, Braille Institute educational program manager. Ten guides joined the students who took a bus from the Braille Institute in La Jolla and spent from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the fair. Only two of the students who attended the fair are totally blind. “Some of the students have some vision,” Miller said. “They are able to maybe see colors
or shapes.” Others can see with magnifiers or other special devices. That allowed the students to enjoy the arts and crafts even with their visual impairment. In some cases, vendors would allow the Braille Institute students to touch the fabrics. “Many of our students are elderly individuals who have age-related eye conditions,” Miller said.

perienced the fair food and the animals, and they were able to touch some of the animals as well as to hear and smell them. “It was definitely a sensory experience for them,” Miller said. In addition to enjoying elements of the county fair, the trip allowed the students to learn to use their other senses and be in the open in the presence of crowds.

Nothing says summer like the smoky flavor of foods cooked out on the grill, the bright, warm sunshine, and the nearby buzzzzz of bees. It’s time for fun in the sun as we all continue to take to the great outdoors to enjoy our Southern CA lifestyle. Summer also requires a few safety reminders to keep fun at the top of our list. Outdoor activities should always include sunscreen and plenty of water, for young and old alike. Whether at the pool or beach, a cautious eye for safety is a must. Food eaten outdoors should be monitored for temperature - both hot and cold - to prevent food poisoning. Outdoor activities can sometimes include bee stings, snake bites, scrapes, and various “owies,” so be prepared to provide first aide to those in need. Please stay safe while having a “ton of fun” in the good ole summertime!

UPDATE Three weeks ago, News of the Weird touted the "genderless," extraterrestrial-appearing Hollywood makeup artist known as Vinny Ohh, but then Marcela Iglesias announced (following a leaked TV clip) that she had formed an agency for would-be celebrities who had radically transformed their bodies (and that Vinny is now a client). Iglesias' Plastics of Hollywood has human "Ken" dolls (Rodrigo Alves and Justin Jedlica), the Argentine "elf" Luis Padron, a Jessica Rabbit look-alike (Pixee Fox), and seven others who, Iglesias figures, have collectively spent almost $3 million on surgery and procedures (some of which are ongoing). (Padron, 25, seems the most ambitious, having endured, among other procedures, painful, "medically unapproved" treatments to change his eye color.) [Daily Mail (London), 5-26-2017; 5-3-2017] RECURRING THEMES -- Richard Patterson, 65, is the most recent defendant to choose, as a trial strategy, to show the jury his penis. A Broward County, Florida, court was trying him in the choking death of his girlfriend. (Patterson called the death accidental, as it occurred during oral sex, and there was conflicting medical opinion on whether that could have proved fatal.) Patterson's lawyer said his standby position was to show a mold of the penis, but insisted that a live demonstration would be more effective. (Update: The judge disallowed the showing, but in May the jury found Patterson not guilty anyway.) [South Florida Sun-Sentinel, 5-302017] -- In rare cases, a mother has given birth for the principal purpose of "harvesting" a baby's cells, ultimately to benefit another family member with a condition or illness that the cells would aid. However, Keri Young of Oklahoma CROP gave .93 birth in April for a different .93 purpose. After learning while pregnant that her 4.17 baby 4.28would not long survive
after birth (because of anencephaly), she nonetheless carried it to term -- just to harvest organs for unspecified people who might need them (though the grieving Keri and husband Royce admit that some might judge their motive harshly). [Houston Chronicle, 4-192017] -- In some parts of traditional Japanese society, it remains not uncommon for someone to feel the need to "rent" "friends." For example, relatives at a funeral bear grief better if they realize the many "friends" the deceased had. Or, a working man or woman may rent a sweetheart just to help deflect parental pressure to marry. In northern China, in April, a man was arrested for renting "family" and "friends" to populate his side of the aisle at his wedding. Apparently, there were conflicts plaguing each family, and police were investigating, but the groom surely worsened the plan by not coaching the actors on his personal details, thus making interfamily small-talk especially awkward. [BBC News, 5-1-2017] -- Our Litigious Society: (1) David Waugaman, 57, fell off a barstool last year and needed surgery, and of course he is suing the tavern at Ziggy's Hotel in Youngwood, Pennsylvania, for continuing to serve him before he fell. Wrote Waugaman, "You're not supposed to feed people so much booze." (2) Robert Bratton filed a lawsuit recently in Columbia, Missouri, against the Hershey chocolate company because there was too much empty space in his grocery-store box of Reese's Pieces, which he thought was "deceptive" (even though the correct number of Pieces was printed on the label). In May, federal judge Nanette Laughrey ruled that Bratton's case could continue for the jury to decide. [PennLive, 5-15-2017] [KCUR Radio (Kansas City), 5-172017] -- Latest From Offended Classes: (1) Some minority students' organizations, commenting on the planned extensive renovation of the University of Michigan's student union building, recommended ditching the current interior's elegant wood paneling -- because it gives off an "imposing, masculine" feeling that makes them seem "marginalized." A spokesperson for the students, attempting to soothe the controversy, said the marginalization was more based on the building's "quiet nature." (2) In Australia, Chanel's just-introduced luxury wood-andresin boomerang (selling for the equivalent of about $1,415) came under fire from aboriginal groups for "cultural appropriation." (Hermes had issued its own luxury boomerang in 2013.)

Top players flock to Dudley camp By Aaron Burgin

The time was right for adaptive surfers’ debut
he Switchfoot Bro-Am was epic, of course, with the recent collision of surf, sun and sounds once again proving to be the perfect kickoff for summer. And of all the Moonlight Beach waves shredded by the Bro-Am competitors — from the iconic Rob Machado to the youngest of grommets — no one matched Alana Nichols. “She crushed it,” Vista’s Ryan Gambrell said. That she did. Too bad it was all for show. “She got so excited that she went before the buzzer sounded,” Gambrell said. “It was still pretty epic.” Nichols’ ride rode well not just because of her style. Her water dance across the Encinitas break was more special with her being an adaptive surfer with the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF). “I saw this wave coming in and I was in perfect position,” she said. “I lined up with the peak and I caught it and it didn’t count. But it felt like it counted because everyone on beach that day were so pumped.’’ And why not? The CAF was part of the Bro-Am for the first time and you bet it was a big deal. “Getting to surf in front of a crowd this big brings an awareness to the things that we are doing,” Nichols said. “We’re overcoming our challenges.” Switchfoot’s Jon Foreman sang CAF’s praises. “Adaptive surfers continue to drive our sport forward and ensure our event can lead the way for sporting events around the world to create a culture of inclusion,” he said. Nichols, 34, suffered a spinal cord injury while attempting a back flip on her snowboard in 2000. Para-
sports talk jay paris lyzed from the waist down, she powers through the water in a sitting position, using her paddle to reach the wave’s sweet spot. After her injury she went on to star in multiple sports. She’s a threetime Paralympic Gold Medalist and is eager to spread the word about the powers sports possess in aiding the disabled. “We’re helping people understand what people with disabilities can do and change the perception that disabled people are kind of immobile,” she said. “Hey we’re getting out in the surf.” The CAF is the driving force in aiding these dedicated and determined athletes to enter the competitive arena. Not only does it help the big kids wanting to play, but the youngsters as well. The CAF athletes also conducted the second annual Junior Seau Foundation Youth Adaptive Surf Camp. Some of those participants surfed in front of thousands at the Bro-Am. The tykes thrilled those on the sand with their skills as the new surfers’ smiles revealed their pure joy. Those grins would have extended to Seau, if the late Chargers great was still alive. There were few things Seau enjoyed more than being in the water and giving children a hand up. Gambrell, who was born with dwarfism and is on the USA Adaptive Surf Team, was having as much fun as his pupils. “It was really awesome,” Gambrell, 33, said.
“I got to talk to Rob Machado, who is one of my San Diego heroes, and my other one was Junior. So to think about that and then have kids coming up to meet you and talk to you ... they were thanking us where it should have been us thanking them. It was just good vibes all around and you knew you were in the right place, doing the right thing.” Right about now is when Nichols gets kidded again for her premature ride. But as many know, a sweet wave comes and goes on its own time. “I was a little too stoked,” Nichols said. “But it was still awesome.” So is the CAF for what it does for those not interested in watching life pass them by.

For many of the basketball players in North County, the trip in late June to Alliant International University has become an annual rite of passage. There, they converge with more than 100 of the top youth basketball players in San Diego County for three days of training, competition and mentoring at the Jared Dudley Elite Skills Academy. The camp, named after Leucadia native and NBA veteran Jared Dudley, has become a staple in San Diego over the past five years, giving prep ballplayers the opportunity to learn from Dudley and a phalanx of NBA veterans who speak to campers over the three days. For Carter Plousha, a junior at Carlsbad High School, the camp helps him to stay focused on his goals of playing college basketball. “I think hearing from NBA players like Jared and Devin Booker really give you the tools and the advice you need to make it, because you know they've made it too," he said. Carter referred to Devin Booker, the 20-yearold star shooting guard of the Phoenix Suns — Dudley's teammate — who was the keynote speaker of the camp. Speaking to campers on Tuesday, Booker told the 160 players and guests his story of how he worked to become one of the top high school basketball players in the country, despite being a relative unknown until his sophomore year. Booker famously scored 70 points in a game against the Boston Celtics this year. "I stayed in the gym and I worked hard, and I was fortunate enough to have a father who played overseas who gave me the tips to the game, and I listened to every word," Booker said. Booker was not the only NBA player or coach to speak to the players. Tyler
Ulis, who also plays for the Phoenix Suns, and Utah Jazz wing Gordon Hayward — who played in his first NBA All-Star Game this season — also gave campers advice and tips on how to achieve their goals. "The first thing I will tell you is to dream big," Hayward said. "The second thing I will tell you is to set goals. The final thing I say is to work hard." Dudley, 31, also imparted his experience and words of wisdom each day of the three-day camp. Wheeling himself around on a scooter following surgery on his foot, the 6-foot-7 forward, who is
entering into his 10th season in the NBA, told players to surround themselves with positive influences and to take care of their bodies and be scholars in the classroom, as well as to embrace their respective roles on their teams. "I always feel it is my duty to give back to the kids in San Diego, because I was in their position not so long ago," Dudley said.

Beware of ‘easy’ party planning ideas
tried to keep it simple. I hosted a wedding shower last week. I wanted it to be extra-special, but I’ve thrown parties before. How hard could it be? “I know,” I thought, as I began to plan. “I will just fill the house with fresh flowers rather than hanging banners and bunting. That should be easy.” “Oh, and instead of trying to bake cupcakes or a cake, I will pull out my old chocolate mousse recipe. I remember it being quick, easy and yummy.” “Hey, how about some interesting salads. They should be easy to toss together.” My hindsight advice?
small talk jean gillette Never, ever use the word “easy” when you are planning a party. It will bite you in the backside. A week before the event, the head count seemed set at 16 and I figured in some guests who are gluten-intolerant. I painstakingly picked out plates, napkins and utensils. Of course, I changed my mind, and had to return and replace them. The gift I ordered hadn’t arrived

yet, but I went ahead and bought a cute box and ribbons for wrapping. The box turned out to be far too large, so I had to return and replace it. I borrowed serving bowls and chairs. I gathered ingredients for a signature cocktail of blackberry-lemon gin and tonic, a favorite of the bride. I believe I thought it would be easy to make. I scheduled cleaning help for the morning of the party. What could I possibly do in a few hours that would make a mess? Oh, the gods were laughing and rubbing their hands together in glee as that thought drifted through my mind. Three days before the event, the head count shot from 16 to 21. That doesn’t sound like much until you translate it into finding matching dessert bowls, the size of the salads and how many chairs you own and/or can squeeze into your living room. And you have to factor in that it’s me doing the prep work. As the days ticked off, I realized nothing could be made more than 24 hours ahead. I also discovered that 21 bowls of mousse take up the entire refrigerator. Even with a second fridge in the garage, I couldn’t accommodate all three salad bowls. The 10 vases worth of flowers had to be bought last minute. By the grace of a dear friend, they got arranged, but it took hours. The green salad had to be last minute. The mousse had to stay chilled. And I badly bungled a salad using gluten-free pasta. I chose one that went from underdone to mush in 60 seconds. During the last hours before the guests arrived, I was wildly slicing and chopping mounds of lemons, tomatoes and salad stuff, tri-tip, chicken and, of course, my finger, which bled for hours. I sprayed whipping cream across the room and a guest, as well. I got dressed so fast, 10 minutes before zero hour, I forgot half my make-up and my earrings. By the time I served the mousse, I forgot about the box of gluten-free cookies I bought to serve with it. I was certain the Good Hostess Committee would be dropping by soon to strip me of my spoons and apron. The end result? You are all sworn to silence. Everyone had a wonderful time. They loved the drinks, loved the food, loved the flowers, loved the mousse, didn’t miss the cookies. Funny how that goes.

The city adopted guidelines that will make it easier for its staff, advisory committees and nonprofit organizations to use meeting rooms at L’Auberge Del Mar at no cost, a requirement established 30 years ago when the resort was being built. Photo by Bianca Kaplanek
L’Auberge meeting room policy adopted By Bianca Kaplanek
DEL MAR — Council members at the June 19 meeting adopted guidelines that will help city staff, advisory committees and nonprofit organizations take advantage of a public benefit established 30 years ago. L’Auberge Del Mar, known at the time as the Del Mar Hotel, was built under a 1987 voter-approved specific plan, which creates a special set of development standards for a particular area. In exchange for those land-use modifications, such as rezoning or increased density, a specific plan requires the developer to offer public benefits. As part of the hotel project, community rooms had to be available for public use at no cost up to 12 times a year. It was a benefit rarely used by nonprofits or the city during the last three decades. Council members Sherryl Parks and Dwight Worden recently worked with hotel management and representatives from the city’s eight nonprofits to develop the guidelines. Under the agreement
L’Auberge will waive setup and space rental fees, a value estimated between $1,250 and $3,500 per event, and allow outside food, nonalcoholic beverages and audiovisual equipment to be brought onsite. There will be a 15 percent discount on food and beverages ordered from the hotel. A 5 percent discount will be applied for use of the hotel’s AV equipment, except in the boardroom, where it will be free. Valet parking will be complimentary for the first 20 cars per event and $10 per vehicle after that. City officials and advisory groups, the Del Mar Foundation, Del Mar Community Connections, Friends of the Del Mar Library, Friends of the Powerhouse, Del Mar Village Association, the Del Mar Historical Society, the Del Mar Garden Club and Friends of Del Mar Parks are eligible to use one of the hotel’s approximately one dozen meeting areas. Applications must be submitted between Nov. 1 and Dec. 15 of each year. The city will make the final selections and allocate use for the following calendar
year. City events will have priority over those of nonprofit organizations. It is expected that any group will use a room only once a year for a maximum of four hours at a time unless all 12 opportunities are not taken. If there are more than 12 applications annually, city staff will work with L’Auberge to possibly accommodate those requests by a random lottery. Under specified circumstances the hotel can change an assigned date or room to accommodate L’Auberge business needs, but it cannot cancel within seven days of the event. The maximum occupancy the hotel can normally accommodate is 30 seats in a U shape or 78 seats theater style. Requests for groups larger than that will be considered on a case-bycase basis. The benefit is meant for meetings and free gatherings. Permission must be received in advance from the city if admission will be charged Events and activities that detract from or disrupt ongoing L’Auberge business activities are not allowed.
Encinitas looks for CCA partner cities By Aaron Burgin
ENCINITAS — Encinitas is looking for additional North County cities to join in their quest for energy independence from San Diego Gas & Electric. This week, the City Council is set to vote whether to draft a request for proposals for a joint technical study that would assess the feasibility of a community choice aggregate (CCA) in Encinitas and partnering cities. CCA, also called community choice energy, is the process in which a jurisdiction such as a county or a city forms an agency that buys power on the open market, choosing the source of the power based on the community’s choice.
The energy would still be delivered on SDG&E infrastructure, but the agency would control where it receives the energy. Encinitas over the past year has met with officials from the neighboring cities of Del Mar, Carlsbad, Oceanside and Solana Beach to gauge the interest of forming a regional CCA. Solana Beach has moved forward on its own, but Del Mar has signaled support and Carlsbad will vote July 11 on whether to share the cost of the study. Oceanside voted last year to support the technical study in practice but wants to know the cost of the study before allocating funds. Encinitas estimates the
study would cost no more than $100,000, and its share of the cost would be $20,000 to $72,000, depending on the cities that participate.

City Creek Center on Salt Lake City’s South Main Street offers attractive landscaping throughout the development, which contains more than 100 shops and restaurants. The mall opened in 2012, is backed financially by the LDS Church, and by some accounts, is credited with bringing 2,000 jobs and 16 million visitors to the downtown area. Photo by Jerry Ondash
Sights and sounds of a changing Salt Lake City
anners hanging throughout City Creek Center, Salt Lake City’s retail, office and residential development spanning three downtown blocks, are not what you might expect in this city known as the world headquarters of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS). The flags hold images of two young women, wine glasses raised, with the words “meet after work” emblazoned just below their smiling faces. The banners serve as invitations to happy hour from local restaurants to come or stay downtown af-
hit the road e’louise ondash ter work. This apparently is not your father’s Salt Lake City. While there two weeks ago, we met with friends who have been in SLC since the 1970s, and they confirmed that there have been many changes in the last 40 years — both good and bad — that come with growth. Like many places in the West, water is an issue,
and as more people move to SLC, the traffic increases and the cost (and value) of housing rises. But, “culturally, Salt Lake has grown more diverse,” said our friend, Alan. “(Years ago), it was hard to find good ethnic food … Now you can find just about any kind of food you like.” During our visit, the Salt Lake Tribune published a census story that counted the current LDS population of Salt Lake County (in which SLC is located) at 51 percent of the total. In Utah County, home to LDS Church-owned Brigham Young University, the rate tops 80 percent. When my husband and I visited years ago (let’s just say it was sometime in the last millennium), downtown SLC was in decay and nightlife nowhere to be found. Like so many other U.S. cities, there were many attempts to revitalize in the ‘80s and ‘90s. Some took,
some didn’t, then along came the 2002 Winter Olympics. Financial scandals notwithstanding, this was a turning point. Today’s SLC has a light rail, updated utilities, an expanded I-15 and other improvements which now attract local businesses and young entrepreneurs who enjoy amenities like theaters, gardens, museums, quality eateries, breweries and wine bars. During our visit we headquartered in the Kimpton Hotel Monaco, ideally situated at the corner of Main Street and West 200 Street. It’s a short walk to Clark Planetarium, Gallivan Center, several theaters, City Creek Center and Temple Square. Yes, the LDS Church still has a strong presence, and the 10-acre LDS complex is definitely worth a visit, with its towering trees and manicured flower beds. On almost any day, there

are hundreds of looky-loos strolling the square taking photos and getting scooped up for tours. At Christmas, the square is illuminated with more than 300,000 lights. Although visitors can view the Temple only from the outside, we could and did enter the Tabernacle, where the famed Mormon Tabernacle Choir performs, and the Assembly Hall. In both we happened upon organ practice, which meant an impromptu concert. Try to imagine the sound that comes from 11,623 pipes. The next day, it was a change of pace at the Clark Planetarium, a 15-minute walk from the Monaco. It’s a (free) mecca for kids and adults who like hands-on science lessons. The morning we visited, swarms of elementary school students jumped from exhibit to exhibit, fascinated with lessons about the planets, stars and galaxies. There are admission fees to see the productions in the IMAX Theater and Hansen Dome Theater, which these days is all about the upcoming total solar eclipse (Aug. 21), which Utahans will get to see in
almost totality. From the Monaco, it’s a short ride to the Natural History Museum and Red Bluff Gardens, where we spent several hours combing its 100 acres that rest at the foothills of the Wasatch Range. Operated by the University of Utah, the garden is a bonanza of both native and non-native plants, experimental gardens, accessible walkways, and a lagoon and waterfall fed by Red Butte Creek. The generous numbers of mature trees, benches and wooded alcoves provide many spots for quiet contemplation even on hot days. The rose garden and blossom-laden arbor is a favorite venue for weddings, and a large amphitheater on the west edge serves up bigname concerts. All-in-all, the garden is an elevated oasis that yields a spectacular view of Salt Lake City and the valley. For more photos and commentary, visit www. facebook.com /elouis.ondash.

have done, they come here to enjoy the food and wine, and I see to it they are allowed to dine and drink in peace, no exceptions.” And what a collection of 10,000 wines it is! Every Italian wine masterpiece is in that collection, some in the thousands of dollars each. The Vegas hit movie “Casino” was shot in Piero’s for all the restaurant scenes. The stars Robert DeNiro, Joe Pesci and Sharon Stone hung out at the bar for days at a time. More recently, “Ocean’s Eleven” stars George Clooney and Matt Damon frequently dine, as well as ex-presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. When it came to tasting wines with the wine director, she was a 60ish tough talking commander of wine, Pat Rost, who has been with Piero’s since the beginning. She loved Pinot Noir from California and that’s what I got. Her choice of the Paul Hobbs Pinot from the Sonoma Coast was brilliant, to go with the fried mozzarella and burrata, with beef tomato and arugula. Before I could select my choice, they had my main entrée in hand. It was their signature, a big, highly structured Osso Bucco, a veal creation that flaked off the bone. The wine came from Italian stardom, a Super Tuscan red from Andrea Bocelli, a Tuscan winemaker as well as international singer. Learn more about this legendary restaurant at PierosCuisine.com. The “authentic” style of Italian restaurant is Rao’s, inside Caesar’s Palace, where I stayed. It recently celebrated 120 years in operation in East Harlem, New York, founded by Charles Rao. In 2006, the family took their Southern Italian cooking secrets and opened a second Rao’s in Vegas. Rao’s recipes and Italian-style wines were straight out of an Italian kitchen, going back to its beginnings. Try the homemade tasting Caesar Salad,

Eggplant Parmesan and Lasagna. I will never forget their “Happy Hour” for an extended three hours, from 4 to 7 p.m., where a menu full of your choice of filling dishes like meatballs, Penne pasta or Portobella mushrooms each went for way under $10. The wines were amongst the most well known in Tuscany, like Chianti Classico, Rosso Montalcino and many others, also way under $10. Salute to Rao’s. Discover raos.com.

stander (except this time it was fatal to the bystander). Victor Sibson, 21, was charged in Anchorage, Alaska, in May with killing his girlfriend even though he had aimed at his own head. Investigators were persuaded that it was a genuine attempt, though he survived, but in critical condition. [KTUU-TV (Anchorage), 5-22-2017] -- More Animals With Affordable Health Care: In April, the annual report of the Association of British Insurers on its members' policies for pet owners noted that among the claims paid were those for a bearded dragon with an abscess, an anorexic Burmese python, a cocker spaniel that swallowed a turkey baster, a cockatoo with respiratory problems, and even a "lethargic" house cat (which nonetheless cost the equivalent of $470 to treat). [BBC News, 4-17-2017] -- Legal "Experts" Everywhere! American "sovereigns" litter courtrooms with their self-indulgent misreadings of history and the Constitution (misreadings that, coincidentally, happen to favor them with free passes on arrests and tax-paying), but now, the U.K.'s Exeter Crown Court has experienced Mark Angell, 41, who said in May that he simply could not step into the courtroom dock to state a plea concerning possession of cannabis because he would thus be "submitting" to "maritime law," which he could not legally do on dry land. Judge: "Don't talk nonsense. Get in the dock." Angell was ordered to trial. Before leaving, he gave the judge a bill for his detention: the equivalent of $2.5 million. [DevonLive (Exeter), 5-19-2017] -- More Third-World Religion: In March, Zimbabwean pastor Paul Sanyangore of Victory World International Ministries was captured on video during a sermon telephoning God. Clutching a
phone to his ear, he yelled, "Hello, is this heaven? I have a woman here, what do you have to say about her?" (Her two children, one epileptic, the other asthmatic, are then confusingly described by "heaven" as being "changed," and Paul ended the call to resounding cheers from the congregation.) [AfricaNews (Lyon, France), 5-23-2017] -- More of the World's Third-Oldest Crime (Smuggling): (1) In the latest awesome drug-mule haul of gold (into South Korea, where it fetches higher prices than in neighboring countries), 51 people were arrested in May for bringing in, over a twoyear period, a cumulative
two tons, worth $99 million, by hiding it in body parts befitting their biological sex. (2) Customs officials in Abdali, Kuwait, apprehended a pigeon in May with 178 ketamine pills inside a fabric pocket attached to its back. [Daily Mail (London), 5-242017] [BBC News, 5-25-2017] THE ARISTOCRATS! Almost an Epidemic: Men suffering compulsive public masturbation recently: (1) In the midst of evening rush hour in the New YorkNew Jersey Lincoln Tunnel, Ismael Esquilin, 48, stopped his minivan and engaged (May 11). (2) In downtown Portland, Oregon, Terry An-
dreassen was arrested engaging "vigorously" because he "hates Portland" (and was charged with "felony" public indecency (May 3). (3) In Dunbar, West Virginia, Tristan Tucker, 27, allegedly broke into a relative's home and stole security camera recordings of him engaging (April 23). (4) Vix Bodziak, 70, allegedly engaged at a McDonald's in Springfield, Massachusetts (April 20). (Bonus: Police found a paper-stuffed tube sock bulging underneath his pant leg.)
