ACA, immigration, border wall part of Issa town hall discussions By Ruarri Serpa

OCEANSIDE — For over two hours, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) fielded questions from a largely contentious crowd at a town hall in Oceanside on Saturday morning. Questions centered around reforming the Affordable Care Act, with many people demanding direct answers from Issa about his position on the proposed Republican legislation to repeal the healthcare bill and replace it. “If the Congressional Budget Office says that costs will go up, and less people will be covered, will you support it?” asked Steve Linke, of Carlsbad. “You know…” Issa began, before being overwhelmed by people chanting, “Yes or No.” Ultimately he said he “doesn’t want to spend the same money, to cover less people.” The town hall was held in two sessions at the Junior Seau Beach Community Center to accommodate

RANCHO SANTA FE — The recent heavy rainfall in San Diego County, along with the substantial snowfall in California’s Sierra Nevada, has many wondering if the California drought is officially over. Public information officer for the Santa Fe Irrigation District (SFID) Jessica Parks said that county reservoirs are filling up due to the record-breaking rainfall in January and February. She noted that another added benefit from the rainfall was how SFID customers turned off their irrigation systems which lowered the demand for water. “Since Dec. 1, 2016, we have had over 10 inches of rainfall. This is great since we usually only have about 10 inches for a whole year,” Parks said. “We still have a few more months of the ‘wet season’ to go, and we expect more rain is coming.” So is the drought over? “The simple answer is that the drought is over in San Diego County. However, there are some important details our customers should know about,” Parks said. “First, while there are currently no mandatory conservation requirements, we continue encour-

wasting water and to use water efficiently.” Parks also wants people to know that the San Diego County Water Authority declared an end to the drought in the region due to a combination of the heavy local rainfall, record-setting rainfall in the Northern Sierra, and the heavy snowpack in the Upper Colorado River Basin. “Finally, the state extended its Emergency Drought Regulations on Feb. 8 for another 270 days,” she said. “The Santa Fe Irrigation District has joined with the County Water Authority and others in requesting that the state rescind this regulation.” Despite the heavy rainstorms that pummeled the county, Parks said that SFID has so far avoided any damages from the storms this year. She attributed this to the district’s investments in upgrading its water systems and its field crews being on alert. While the State of California has received significant rainfall, Parks noted that even during very wet periods it makes sense to use water wisely. “The district remains in Level 1, voluntary water TURN TO DROUGHT ON 14

‘Sanctuary State’ would give sanctuary to dangerous criminals By Sen. Patricia Bates

In the coming days the state Senate will vote on a bill that essentially will turn California into a “sanctuary state.” That bill, Senate Bill 54, will create safe haven by making it harder for state and local officials to turn over violent criminals who are in the country illegally to federal officials for deportation. Whether someone is a citizen, legal resident or undocumented, all Californians deserve safe neighborhoods. The Pew Research Center estimates the Los Angeles-Long Beach-Anaheim metro area is home to one million illegal immigrants and the San Diego-Carlsbad area to 170,000. SB 54’s author has stated that the percentage of illegal immigrants committing serious and violent crimes, “if it is more than a percentage point or two, is extremely, extremely small.” If SB 54 is signed into law, even that “extremely small” percentage means up to 23,400 violent criminals could be shielded in the San Diego, Orange and Los Angeles region alone. Statewide, Pew’s estimate of 2,350,000 illegal immigrants in California means nearly 50,000 violent criminals could be shielded from deportation and released back into local communities. For perspective, the entire population of the City of Encinitas is 62,930. There have been horrific instances of sanctuary policies shielding violent criminals. In 2015, there were the tragic murders of Kate Steinle in San Francisco and Marilyn Pharis in Santa Maria. In both cases, the suspects were in California illegally and had recently been released from

Green groups say Brown living down to his name California Focus By Thomas D. Elias


rom the day Republican President Donald Trump won last fall’s election, Gov. Jerry Brown has worked to position himself as the leader of the loyal opposition, saying time and again that he will fight for the liberal agenda so popular in California, from same sex marriage to climate change activism. He’s especially vocal about preserving the state’s ability to move on its own to improve air quality and reduce emissions of greenhouse gases most scientists have found are a prime cause of climate change and global warming. So it was a little startling when 12 environmental and public interest groups published a report the other day questioning Brown’s green credentials, claiming he consistently lives down to his name: “Brown” on everything from oil drilling to preventing toxic emissions and promoting an overcapacity of fossil-fueled, greenhouse gas-spewing electric plants. That last may have been the biggest surprise, considering Brown’s frequent posturing as a champion of renewable energy, especially power from wind and solar sources. Despite his frequent words, the 12 groups say California now derives 60 percent of its power from fossil fuels, mostly natural gas, while in 2012, just after Brown took office for the second time, the state was getting just 53 percent of its electricity from such “dirty” sources. What’s more, the groups charged in their 56page report, Brown systematically encourages a glut of power plants that sees

consumers pay for about 20 percent more generating capacity than the state will ever need in the foreseeable future. The accusing groups include Consumer Watchdog, Food & Water Watch, Physicians for Social Responsibility, and Restore the Delta, among others. Restore the Delta has long opposed Brown’s “twin tunnels” plan to bring Northern California river water around the Sacramento-San Joaquin river delta, while Consumer Watchdog previously issued a report accusing Brown of political corruption. As with past reports like that, Brown has said nothing about the claims against him, thus assuring they got little publicity. “Same drivel, different day,” press secretary Evan Westrup opined. But the claims in the environmental report appear every bit as solid as those in the previous corruption allegations, the subject of an ongoing investigation by a state watchdog agency. Food and Water Watch is particularly incensed about the apparent acquiescence of Brown appointees in plans of Southern California Gas Co. to reopen its flawed Aliso Canyon gas storage field in northern Los Angeles, even if it’s at somewhat lower levels of gas quantity than SoCal Gas finds optimal. The group noted that Brown’s sister, Kathleen, the former state treasurer, draws a six-figure fee as a board member of SoCal’s parent company, Sempra Energy, saying that makes his actions — or inaction — on Aliso a conflict of interest. The report also castigates Brown for “nurturing (oil and gas) drilling and fracking,” repeating a contention that early in his term he fired regulators

who tried to delay hydraulic fracking for gas and oil in Kern County until there were assurances that waste water from those operations would not harm ground water supplies often used for crop irrigation. The report claimed Brown is living out his 2012 statement that “The oil rigs are moving in Kern County…we want to use our resources (including) the sun and all the other sources of power. It’s not easy. There are going to be screwups, there are going to be bankruptcies, there’ll be indictments and there’ll be deaths, but…nothing is going to stop us.” So far, there have been no indictments, but former Brown-appointed members of the state Public Utilities Commission have been under investigation since early 2015 by federal and state authorities. The green groups noted that Democratic U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein endorses a state legislative bill to keep Aliso Canyon closed until the causes of the storage field’s months-long leak in 2015 and 2016 are found and fixed. Brown is silent on that bill. None of these claims has yet affected either Brown’s approval ratings or his policies. No one yet knows if the contradictions cited between his posturing and his actions will sully his legacy, his standing in state history or his prospects in a potential future run for the Senate. Which means all anyone can do is stay tuned.

local custody without notice to federal immigration officials despite criminal records and prior deportations. Other examples include the ambush murders of two law enforcement officials during an hours-long crime rampage in Sacramento and Placer counties in 2014, the murders of a father and two of his sons in San Francisco in 2008, and the murder of a student walking home from high school in Los Angeles in 2008. Each was committed by individuals with lengthy criminal records who were in California illegally. Californians do not want rapists, murderers and gang members being sent back to any neighborhood to commit more crimes. Yet SB 54 will unintentionally help protect these dangerous criminals. SB 54’s author says nothing in the bill would shield violent criminals. However, it will be more difficult for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to arrest and detain criminals released early under the recently passed Proposition 57. Crimes deemed “non-violent” under state law include many most of us would absolutely consider violent: assault with a deadly weapon, rape of an unconscious or drugged person, arson, domestic violence and beating a child. None of these crimes are defined as “violent felonies” under Prop. 57. The California State Sheriffs’ Association opposes SB 54, stating: “We believe it is inappropriate for the state to tell a local agency that it cannot respond to a request for information from the federal government.” The sheriffs’ associa-

tion is right. Governor Brown has rejected sanctuary city policies in the past. When he was California’s attorney general, he said: “I don’t support sanctuary cities. ... Just opening up the cities and saying our borders don’t mean anything, as the state’s chief law enforcement officer, I’m not going there.” And in 2012 Gov. Brown vetoed AB 1081, a bill similar to today’s SB 54. He pointed out that the bill would have barred local cooperation even when the person arrested had convictions for crimes involving child abuse, drug trafficking, selling weapons, using children to sell drugs or gangs. “I believe it’s unwise to interfere with a sheriff’s discretion to comply with a detainer issued for people with these kinds of troubling records,” he stated. If SB 54 gets to the governor’s desk, all Californians should hope he remembers his own words and vetoes it. This is not a partisan or political issue — it is about safety. My top responsibility as a legislator is the safety of all Californians, and I support protecting all our state’s communities, including those with large numbers of immigrants. We must not pass bills limiting law enforcement’s ability to keep us safe. The bottom line is Californians deserve safe neighborhoods, not SB 54. Senator Patricia Bates (R-Laguna Niguel) represents the 36th Senate District in the California Legislature, which covers North San Diego County, Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton and South Orange County.

Rancho Santa Fe Library launches classic film series By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — The Rancho Santa Fe Library is offering the community an opportunity to enjoy a viewing of a special film era by hosting its “Short and Sweet Classic Films” series twice a month. Positive feedback has been received from this silver screen launch which began last month. According to library technician Sara Joseph, the idea flourished after they were gifted a giant screen television. Many who work at the library are aficionados of old movies so they thought a regular viewing of various films would be a great idea. “We came up with a classic movie theme mostly from the ‘30s, ‘40s, and ‘50s,” Joseph said. “All the movies are under 90 minutes so that’s why it’s called ‘Short and Sweet Classic Films.’” Every other Monday is show time with movies starting at 1 p.m. in the Guild Room. Next showing is Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Lady Vanishes” slated for March

20. Joseph also shared how the library wanted to bring the classic film genre to its community so people could become more familiar with it as well as perhaps appreciating the films they may have watched a long time ago. “There’s not that many places to go see classic movies anymore,” she said. “And bringing the community together gives it such a different experience than watching it in your home.” Joseph admits that initially she came up with the “Short and Sweet Classic Films” concept. While the library enhances the community, particularly with programs for kids, she thought that adding another adult program would be a welcome. And it has been. While the series is fairly new, attendees are really enjoying it. “People love the popcorn that we’re supplying,” she said. The RSF Library hopes that the community enjoys the new venue of watching timeless classic films.

Rancho Santa Fe School District invests in the arts By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — The Rancho Santa Fe School District unanimously decided at its March 4 monthly board meeting to continue working with its consultant Ashely Adams to help facilitate and continue the development of its MUSE program. MUSE comprises the academic disciplines of dance, music, theatre and visual arts. At the February school board meeting, Adams provided to the board an in-depth presentation highlighting her report on the MUSE program based on her assessment. From that presentation, the district agreed at its meeting to a $9,000 contract with Adams with an effective date on March 3 to Aug. 31. Adams had indicated how MUSE was an exceptional program. While

this was so, she pointed out areas the program could be improved such as outreach, integrating the arts, strengthening the department, solidifying the organization, finding ways in creating a more effective department, and making the program a more standards-based discipline in the arts. According to Adams, California had established standards in the arts and the goal for MUSE was a long-term vision. Before the vote, Superintendent David Jaffe told the board how the contract agreement would help support the recommendations made by Adams. “The recommendations in moving forward will support the program, and the developments will support the teachers in the program. It will give the program the level of importance that it has at

the school and in this environment,” Jaffe said. Jaffe went on to say that for this progress it was necessary to continue on with the recommendations and the work related to it. While their current staff they had in place was capable of moving it forward, Jaffe said, current schedules could make it difficult in accomplishing those goals. However, Adams could help facilitate this. Jaffe noted how she comes to the District with an excellent background and experience. “Her time with us would be to work to implement the program,” Jaffe said. He told the board that some of the recommendations Adams made may have to go into the next school year. Many were long-term goals and would TURN TO MUSE ON 14

RANCHO SANTA FE — At The Rancho Santa Fe Association board of directors meeting in January, the board approved new rules relating to voters and votes conducted by written ballot be posted for a 30-day member comment period. While working through the March 2 monthly board meeting agenda, the voter rules topic was re-addressed after RSF Association President Fred Wasserman reminded members that the specific timeframe had been met. Wasserman confirmed with Association staff that no member comments had been received. RSF Association Director Allen Finkelson then suggested in making a motion to adopt the new resolution and the approval was unanimous. As Finkelson pointed out in a previous meeting, Association members who were already registered to vote remained the same unless they wanted to make a change. The new rules were aimed at current Association members who have not registered to vote and have a desire to do so. Conversely, the approved procedures also apply to new owners. The new rules are also designed as a means to offer the election inspector voter verification so that a member vote will be counted. “Every new property owner will get a verification form as part of the escrow package, and we will follow up and be sure that the owner returns that form to us,” Wasserman said. Wasserman shared that current property owners will have a different form called a change form. “You don’t have to make any changes, but each property will have two votes as long as that property has been verified in our system,” Wasserman said. Finkelson then made another point to members who were present at the meeting. “Anybody in our system today that’s registered has one vote. That person is registered already but they will automatically get two ballots,” he said. “So people who are currently in the system don’t have to do anything unless they want to.” RSF Association Director Mike Licosati wanted to know the status of the Association’s database. Interim manager Christy Whalen told the board that staff was working on it and currently in the mid-process of it all in merging three other databases. “Our voter database is one of the databases that we’re merging,” she said. Whalen also shared how staff was going to be calling members who were not registered to vote during the process. She noted that member signatures will now be scanned for verification which is now in a binder. Wasserman described the database efforts as a major undertaking.

Women and hair loss: There is good news for a remedy OCEANSIDE — When it comes to hair loss, it’s safe to say men tend to fare better than women. Male hair loss is more common and acceptable to discuss, while a level of shame and embarrassment can occur for women that prevents them from seeking help. Female hair loss can occur in a few different areas including the sides of the head, the top of the head, the front of the head and the eyebrows. While female hair loss can be the result of a medical condition, it is often due to surgery, damage from hair processing and — when it comes to eyebrows — from overplucking. “The majority of women we see have had prior surgery such as a facelift or a forehead lift,” Dan Wagner, CEO of MyHairTransplantMD, said. “If a woman is experiencing thinned out hair over their entire scalp, that is something that should first be addressed medically. If the hair loss is in a distinct pattern or patch area, we can help.” Facial surgeries such as facelifts or forehead lifts will move back a woman’s hairline, which is

chemicals and blow drying,” Wagner said. “When they find us they are excited because they had believed their situation was hopeless. During our consultation we show them exactly how we can help them remedy their hair loss once any burns that have occurred heal. They leave our office with a plan. And once the plan has been executed, their confidence is restored.” When it comes to eyebrow thinning, tweezers are usually the culprit. “Whether trying to keep up with trends in eyebrow shaping, or just a result of aggressive plucking, many women live with thin to nearly non-existent eyebrows. Makeup and tattooing are common solutions, and many women mistakenly believe they are the only ones. “Makeup and permanent makeup in particular can be effective, but they don’t produce the most natural-looking results,” Wagner said. “At MyHairTransplantMD we are able to use the same techniques that can restore hair to the scalp and adapt them to restore the full, natural appearance of your eyebrows.” Procedures for

eyebrow hair transplants start at $3,500, depending on the extent of the hair loss. Wagner invites anyone who is experiencing hair loss and is interested in a solution to contact MyHairTransplantMD for a free consultation. “We want you to come in and see us,” he said. “We will ask you to describe your problem, and if necessary we can do a consultation with your physician if a medical issue has created your hair loss problem.” He also urges women to let go of any humiliation they might feel associated with their hair loss. “Female hair restoration is more common than you might think,” Wagner said. “We will make you feel comfortable and when you leave our office you will have a clear vision of what your next step is. We aren’t just restoring hair here; we want to restore your confidence.” MyHairTransplantMD is located at 2103 S. El Camino Real, Suite 201 in Oceanside.

Farm Bureau offering year-round farm tours By Jamie Higgins

ESCONDIDO — The San Diego County Farm Bureau has said goodbye to Farm Tour Day, opting instead to offer a variety of farm tours throughout the year, as part of its Friends of Farming program. The change will allow the public to be able to tour more local farms and meet local farmers throughout the year. Farm Tour Day was an annual event that offered San Diegans the opportunity to, “spend a day in the country” and tour multiple farms in a single day. The event’s popularity led to growing pains, according to Taylor Zumstein, San Diego County Farm Bureau’s event and marketing coordinator “As our event grew, so did our need for volunteers and farm tour guides. In order to accommodate such large groups, we also needed expansive parking. Some of the farms that would have been great for a tour simply couldn’t provide the capacity for such large crowds,” said Zumstein. Still in its infancy, Friends of Farming is the Farm Bureau’s up and coming program. For just $27 a year, Friends have the opportunity to attend six farm tours throughout the year. Program participants can attend as many or as few of the tours as they would like. Tours are typically held on Saturdays with multiple tour times. Farm tours give consumers the chance to visit a working farm and see what goes into producing the head of lettuce, gallon of milk, or the plants they buy. The popularity of farm tours has increased in recent years, according to Zumstein. “Now, more than ever, consumers want to know what’s in their products, how it’s grown and har-

vested, and where it was sourced. Consumers are buying local produce, protein, plants, and flowers more often now,” She said. So many people are urban and suburban dwellers, that they have largely lost their connection to the farming way of life. Visiting farms can help to reestablish the connection to our food and to hear farmers share their passion for agriculture can be quite interesting. “Witnessing a farmer speak about their operation is quite the heartwarming experience. A lot of blood, sweat, and tears go into their farms, so facilitating tours gives farmers the chance to show off their hard work and also educate visitors about their slice of agriculture,” said Zumstein. Many of the farms they tour are usually not open to the public. The program offers a one-of-a-kind experience that will allow participants to learn about these special farming operations. A few of the agricultural commodities that Friends of Farming have toured in the past include farm cultivating everything from citrus, cut flowers, and heirTURN TO FARM TOURS ON 14

was actually given two good photos of myself last week. This is astounding, people. I realize I am not alone in hating most pictures of myself. What’s worse is that I hate them until five to 10 years later, I look back at them and marvel that I was ever that young, firm and, well, not terrible looking after all. How does that happen? All credit for my recent photo successes go to my friend, the photographer, who regularly turns out wonderful images. But just to keep me humble, she will show me all the pictures she took of me, and there is always at least one that makes me want to crawl under my bed and not come out. It will have caught me in profile, or not smiling. And if I’m not paying attention, it seems my hunched shoulders and triple chin are painfully obvious. In the words of Charlie Brown (or maybe it was Lucy), “Aaugh!” I finally understand the temperamental actors who won’t allow themselves to be filmed from a particular side. I am considering some sort of body drape or item along the lines of the Phantom of the Opera’s mask. I just need something that hides my horrible posture and tucks up tightly under my chin.

Oh, never mind…that would be a burkah. You don’t want to deny your progeny a record of your general existence, but I really don’t want photos that make me look rather like my great-great-greatgrandmother crossing the Rockies in a covered wagon. The only difference is that I usually smile. She, heaven knows, worked far too hard to smile much. But never having rolled across prairies, how is it I now have the same slumped, weather-beaten countenance? So much for progress. I am, in fact, more than a little frustrated with my body these days. I do exercise classes. I park far away at the supermarket and have 14 steps to climb every single day just to get to my bedroom. Why then, do I not have the stature of a 20-year-old? Or even a not slumped-over, doesn’t-lookwizened 60-something? I can hear those emails being written now. Go to a gym every morning. Take kick boxing four days a week.

The Barrel Room rolls out new wine concepts taste of wine

By Frank Mangio 2015 Gerard BertrandCote des Rosés bout T h e A Wine: A

soft, pale, br i l l ia nt pink with b l u s h tints. This rosé rele a s e s aromas of summer fruits, and floral notes of roses. The finish is fresh offer ing a taste of candy. The varietals used are from Grenache, Cinsau lt and Syrah in the R h o n e Valley of France. Drink this wine cold, about 50 degrees is ideal.


bout The Winery: Gertard Bertrand was raised in the south of France, in the Languedoc Roussillon area where his winery is recognized for fine wines. Languedoc produces over a third of the wines of France with a 3,000-year history of winemaking.

bout the Cost: This wine is well stocked A by COSTCO and is sold for just $11.

frank mangio It’s customer first for the many happy guests who have discovered all there is to know about The Barrel Room in Rancho Bernardo, a vintage wine bar and bistro that is raising the bar skyward with some grand plans for the future. They started the year our right by bringing in the legendary Laird Family Estate from Napa Valley. The last time I saw Rebecca Laird, she was holding court in Del Mar at a dinner years ago. She hasn’t aged a bit, but her wines have. Laird wines are simply in great demand, especially from other wineries. Confusing you say? Not really. After founding Laird in 1970 by buying 200 acres, her father Ken Laird and his wife enlisted the help of the one and only Robert Mondavi. He mentored them to specialize in Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay. The first few years, they did 3,000 cases, and in the boom in production in the valley that followed, wineries were coming to them to buy all the grapes they could produce. Today, the Laird Empire owns 2,400 acres with 40 vineyards. They count the legendary winemaker Paul Hobbs and Merryvale/ Starmont as star customers for their grapes I asked her about all the rain this season and the affect on the grapes. “This season the rain has been vey beneficial for the grapes,” she said. “But

any more rain, we may have a big problem with the crop.” She wound up the presentation at The Barrel Room with a vertical flight of three years’ worth of her Jillian’s Blend of Cab, Merlot, Syrah and Petite Verdot: 2011, 2012 and 2013. My vote went to the 2013, a carefully prepared vintage with subtle, elegantly mixed grapes. Most of the rest of the room thought so too. I didn’t know a lot about the Barrel Room until I witnessed the professionalism and the fun of the Laird wine dinner. The team has worked hard to make it a retail wine shop, a wine bar, full casual dining restaurant, and I would add, a source of memorable wine dinners. To match the Laird offering of a three-vintage vertical tasting of their most popular blend,

Glasses for the ears My son was struggling. At the time we started noticing my son’s problems in school, I was a stay-at-home mom and my husband was a school principal. Despite our best efforts, Alejandro still struggled. We noticed he hadn’t learned the alphabet and numbers in kindergarten. The school told us to wait for him to mature – that his reading and writing would come along. While we waited, Alejandro’s inability to keep up affected his self-esteem. By the time he was in second grade we were desperate as he still was not progressing. He found it hard to concentrate, was distracted, and could not complete homework by himself. Finally, a colleague told me about Encinitas Learning Center where they use innovative treatment in reading. One of the intensive programs used there is called FastForWord developed by Scientific Learning Corporation. Validated by over 250 publications from Rutgers, Stanford, MIT, Cornell and Harvard, they hold over 55 U.S. patents that sets this approach apart from any other program. FastForWord is often called “Glasses for the Ears” because of its corrective ability in helping improve how a child un-

derstands, processes, and associates sounds with the written word. It is the foundational underpinnings necessary for being able to learn, to read, to comprehend and to remember information. It is intensive because the brain has to be convinced to process differently and to change the “set point” through reorganizing the neural plasticity used in learning. Daily use of computerized slowing of sounds to 80 ms ultimately results in systematic improvements in speed and accuracy in identifying those sounds until Alejandro could process what he hears at a speed of 25 ms! That means he can attend to the teacher’s voice even in noise and still stay on task. For me as a parent, FastForWord relieved a lot of stress. Before we learned about the program, we did our best to find something to help him. I tried everything I could, but nothing worked. FastForWord and the staff at ELC helped us all. Nine-year-old Alejandro De Anda is a happy, enthusiastic boy. He enjoys nature and finds science fascinating. He plays soccer, baseball, and basketball. He sings and plays the piano and drums. Just a few years ago, however,

Alejandro was a very different little boy. My son, like 8 million other students, had difficulty learning to read. This struggle turned his world upside down. It was not until the summer before Alejandro started third grade that we finally discovered a solution – “Glasses for the Ears.” Excerpt from article written by Isabel De Anda, mother of Alejandro, in MultiMedia Schools. This family is one of more than 3000 that have been helped in the past twenty years at Encinitas Learning Center. Located in Encinitas, we are pleased to be able to bring this program and many others to the 6037 La Granada Unit E office in Rancho Santa Fe. It is not tutoring, rather, a systematic analysis of where learning is breaking down so that we can pinpoint and treat that specific obstacle to restore independent learning. If there are gaps due to inefficient processing of information then we can assess and fill in academic training to bring everything up to speed. The goal is to achieve a level playing field and optimum potential. To schedule an appointment for your child, call the Encinitas Learning Center at 760 634-0646.

RANCHO SANTA FE — March 4, Helen Woodward Animal Center presented Carrie Ann Inaba, animal advocate and spokesperson for the Center’s 2015 International Remember Me Thursday campaign, with the 2017 Helen Woodward Humane Award. Inaba is also a television host, dancer, choreographer and producer. The Humane Award is presented annually to a person or entity that has made a significant positive impact on the animal welfare world — devoting their time, energy, and resources to improving the quality of life for orphaned animals. Although Inaba is best known for her passion for dance, as a judge on ABC’s “Dancing With The Stars,” it is her great love for animals that inspired Inaba to found the charitable organization, The Animal Project Foundation, in 2012. The organization provides funding to grassroots animal rescue groups, assisting with emergency rescue and medical costs, fostering and adoption of high-risk animals, and provides access to free spay and neuter services. Inaba’s dedication to the world of animal welfare touched the center directly in 2015, when she accepted the role of official spokesperson for Helen Woodward Animal Center’s Remember Me Thursday campaign. Her participation included the creation of a public service announcement, encouraging the world to take part by sharing photos of their res-

for 90 minutes to a crowd that gathered outside his office, but that evening he skipped a meeting with those activists, along with labor groups and healthcare advocates, organized in Vista. About 400 people attended each hour-long session Saturday morning, and most people seemed to be supportive of the Affordable Care Act, and opponents of President Donald Trump. Many in attendance held “Agree” and “Disagree” signs, which they held up throughout Issa’s answers, but most of Issa’s answers were interrupted by jeers and chants. Issa answered about 20 questions, ranging from the Republican healthcare plan, to Russia, immigration and a wall on the Mexican border. Regarding Russia, Issa said the statute providing for a special prosecutor no longer existed, to which the audience shouted, “Do your job.” When the same question came up in the second half of the town hall, Issa said he would push the deputy attorney general in charge of the investigation to be open and independent. He added that the “chaos” Russia creates in America cannot continue. “It is an existential threat to democracy, if we


tions. At the March monthly board meeting, Whalen provided the board and members present with an update. She had indicated that the temporary restroom is behind the stands, by the dugout. According to Whalen, she along with the trails subcommittee, RSF Association Field Operations Manager Arnold Keene, and environmental consultants walked the area.

don’t stop it,” he said. When asked about his support for the recent ban on immigration from six predominantly Muslim countries, Issa said, “denying refugees was a shameful part of our history that cannot be repeated.” On immigration, Issa framed it as an economic issue for American workers, but was not supportive of a new wall along the border. One notable exchange came at the end of the first session, when Mike Levin, an Orange County lawyer and Democratic candidate for office, pressed Issa on his support for protecting the environment, and received loud cheers for his question. Retired Col. Doug Applegate, the Democratic candidate who narrowly lost against Issa in 2016 and has promised to run again in 2018, was outside the recreation center throughout

the town hall. He dismissed Levin’s appearance Saturday, as a coordinated stunt. “You think that was a coincidence?” Applegate said. While the protesting continued outside the hall after the event, Linke, the Carlsbad voter who asked about Issa’s support for the Republican healthcare replacement said his respect for Issa increased after the town hall, even if his question wasn’t answered directly. “I was pleased to hear Mr. Issa at least make that qualified commitment, including the implied trust of the CBO score. However, he is probably leaving himself an escape,” Linke said. “My respect for Mr. Issa increased as a result of the town halls, and I found I agree with him on some points, although I still disagree with him on many issues.”

“We discussed and looked at different options and what we came up with is we are going to do a study in costing different options,” she said. Some options Whalen mentioned were the portable bathroom relocation or building a structure around it at its current location. “We also had discussed putting in a permanent structure and using a permanent structure. There’s an old shed on site. So we’ll look into what that would cost and what the environmental implications are,” Whalen said.

“We also talked about possibly taking the porta-potty out completely and what that would mean for some of the teams playing there.” Whalen said they ultimately decided to take a hard look at all the different options and leave the portable bathroom there until the baseball season ends in June. “That will give us time to consider some other options. The Trails Committee will be looking at it and they will be making their recommendations,” she said. “We are working on it.”

One of Zumstein’s fondest farm tour memories was when a family visited a local organic farm for the first time. “All of them were dressed very nicely, and the kids had on matching crisp, clean white shirts. Well you know what happens when you get on a farm…you get dirty! They were having the time of their lives: petting the goats, sticking their hands in the soil like the farmer showed them, and getting their hands sticky with fresh fruit that they had picked themselves,” said Zumstein.

ness. The Farm functions as a laboratory for teaching work values and preparing people for re-entry into the workforce. Solutions Farms raises hope, as well as produce, according to the organization’s website. It’s also a farm that uses aquaponics, which means that nutrient-rich water from fish culture is used to nourish produce. In fact, they are currently one of the largest aquaponic facilities in the West. Solutions Farms organic herbs and greens are available at farmers markets, restaurants and Community Supported Agriculture groups (CSA’s) throughout North County and beyond. Kevin Gorham, who is the head grower, and aquaculture and hydroponic specialist, operates the Farm. Gorham has been in the farming industry for about six years. After completing an internship on an aquaponic farm in Hawaii, he returned home to Vista and helped build the first aqua-

ponic systems at Solutions Farms in 2012. He’s worked there ever since. Gorham believes that local agriculture is critical to keeping people connected to their food, community and the environment. “Supporting local farms supports the local economy, creates jobs, and when we’re connected with our local farms we can ensure our food is being produced in safe, environmentally friendly ways,” said Gorham. He thinks people will find the Solutions Farm unique integration of hydroponics and aquaculture very educational. “Tour participants will learn about the environmental downsides to traditional hydroponic and aquaculture operations, while at the same time learning how through integration we are able to eliminate those environmental concerns,” said Gorham.

Sage Creek captures first hoops title in school history By Aaron Burgin

CARLSBAD — When Brandon Dowdy was hired as Sage Creek’s first varsity basketball head coach in school history in 2015, he spoke to the 11th grade basketball players, including point guard and team leader Xavier Allison. The group of juniors, which had played junior varsity basketball for two years, were about to embark on their first varsity season, and Dowdy said he told them his goal — to win a CIF title by the time they

were seniors. “I told them that I believed they could win a CIF title, but it would take a lot of work and a lot of sacrifices,” Dowdy said. Flash forward to last Saturday, and the speech Dowdy gave two years ago appears prophetic. Led by Allison’s 13 points and 12 assists, Sage Creek defeated Mount Miguel 68-52 to capture the CIF Division 3 basketball championship, the first title in the neophyte school’s existence.

The Carlsbad school made an improbable run through the Division 3 bracket as the 10th seed, defeating No. 7 Christian, No. 2 Granite Hills and No. 6 Montgomery to advance to the title game at Jenny Craig Pavilion, where Dowdy played part of his college basketball career for the University of San Diego. The Bobcats (14-18) dominated the ninth-seed Matadors, which knocked off top-seeded Coronado and fourth-seeded Point

Loma on their way to a surprise berth in the finals. The team shot 59.5 percent from the field in the finals, the only team to shoot over 50 percent in the five championship games played on Saturday. Sage Creek jumped out to a 9-2 lead and never looked back, amassing a 3115 halftime advantage and leading by as many as 20 points in the third quarter. Dowdy said the team played to its strengths and looked for scoring inside. “If you look at the tape of us throughout the year, we are not a good outside shooting team,” said Dowdy, who played part of his collegiate career at USD. “We really stressed getting the ball inside and playing inside-out and I think the boys bought into it.” Unheralded senior Bryce Buscher led the Bobcats with 16 points. Allison’s double-double was his second big performance in as many games, as he notched a triple double in the semifinal game with 20 TURN TO SAGE CREEK ON 19

here’s a laundry list of areas where the Padres are seeking improvement. They’ve been busy at spring training breaking in youngsters at positions spots, while wondering where to start with the pitching. How about, with the starters? The Padres most prized hurling prospects aren’t quite ready. That includes Anderson Espinoza, the gem that headed west in the Red Sox trade for Drew Pomeranz. While the majority of the kiddie-corps Padres aren’t far removed from losing their baby teeth, it’s the guys long in the tooth that will begin games. Trevor Cahill is among the veterans looking to resurrect their careers in pitching-friendly Petco Park. If nothing else, Cahill knows the way to the downtown digs. “I’m actually playing for the hometown team,’’ Cahill told the San Diego Union-Tribune. Cahill, an Oceanside native and Vista High graduate, is in the mix for a starting role. He could join a rotation that includes Jered Weaver, Clayton Richard and Jhoulys Chacin. None of those arms belong to kids. So a motivated Cahill, 29, fits in nicely. “There’s reasons for optimism,’’ manager Andy Green said. The right-handed Cahill worked almost exclusively as a reliever for the world champion Chicago Cubs bullpen. He started but once,

when the Cubs were caught short on a doubleheader that forced him into action. Cahill went 4-4 with a 2.74 ERA in 65 2/3 innings over 50 games. But Cahill, a one-time starter, is itching to let someone else burst through those bullpen gates. Taking the mound soon after the national anthem is Cahill’s goal. “He’s hungry to regain a rotation spot after pitching out of the bullpen the last few years,’’ Green said. It wasn’t that many years ago that the 6-foot-4, 240-pound Cahill was not only a starter, but one that performed at an All-Star level. He made the 2010 Midsummer Classic with the A’s, and Green said if he stays on his Ps and Qs, he can recapture that past glory. Cahill’s breakthrough season produced an 18-8 record and a 2.97 ERA that was among the top five among American League starters. The second-round pick of the A’s pitched to his pedigree. “If we get him back to form, where he was in Oakland, and help him take a step forward — he was one of the better young starters the game,’’ Green said. Now he returns to pitch for the team of his youth, the one he pulled for as a North County tyke. “You get drafted and you’re like, ‘Oh, I wish it was the Padres,’’’ Cahill said. “And then after a while, I played at Petco many times. It’s kind of like you don’t even see them as the team you grew up with; it’s just another opponent.’’ Then he walked into the Padres’ Arizona complex. He looked around saw those players he once cheered for working as coaches. Guys like Trevor Hoffman and Mark Loretta. “Now that I’ve put on the jersey and I’m seeing the guys I used to watch growing up in the clubhouse, I guess it hit me then,’’ Cahill said. He didn’t get hit in his Padres debut and that’s a plus. It was just a split-squad game, but he stymied the A’s over two hitless innings, with three strikeouts and a walk. It was a baby step for someone raising the team’s median age. “I’ve been really impressed in how he is throwing the baseball so far,’’ Green said. “Arm looks really healthy.’’ It’s a right arm that once gobbled up innings. “I feel like if I can still do that I can help this team out in that regard,’’ he said. “But I haven’t done it in a couple of years, so it’ll be interesting to see how I hold up over throwing 100 pitches.’’ The Padres’ pitch was to return home. Cahill’s accepted and he’s bent on securing a starting assignment. Contact Jay Paris at jparis8@ aol.com. His book “Game of My Life Chargers” is available at bookstores and at amazon.com.

CRC English Tea fights domestic violence ENCINITAS — Community Resource Center (CRC) invites the community to its 22nd annual “Secret Garden” English Tea, from 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm. April 1 at 650 2nd St., to benefit the Encinitas Community Center. The event will include a silent auction, raffle, program with master of ceremonies Peggy Pico and keynote speaker, Chief Deputy District Attorney Summer Stephan. Event proceeds will provide support to CRC’s domestic violence intervention, education and prevention services and other CRC programs that help families in need. Every month, the center receives more than 150 crisis calls on its domestic violence hotline, during which CRC directly provides resources and support to victims. The afternoon will present stories of survival from CRC alumni who have successfully completed programs. Reports indicate that one in three women in the U.S. is a victim of physical assault, rape and/or

stalking by a husband or boyfriend, which means that more than 546,000 women in San Diego County may have experienced violence from an intimate partner.

The organization’s 24-bed emergency shelter offers a safe home to families, and CRC provides critical counseling and support services to hundreds of individuals in crisis each

year. Every month, the center receives more than 150 crisis calls on its domestic violence hotline, during which CRC directly provides resources and support to victims.

points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists.
