Local author’s inspiration comes from son with autism By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — His book titled “Hugs” was inspired by Lawrence Williams’ experience of raising his son who has autism. The Rancho Santa Fe resident hopes this work of fiction can help educate others on autism. More precisely, Williams aims to help people be more compassionate and understanding. Williams, a retired entrepreneur, always had a penchant for writing. Every year, he would write a letter to each of his three children and give it to them on New Year’s Day. He did this until they reached 18.

MARCH 2, 2018

Williams’ wife, Nina, surprised him one Christmas and compiled all the letters into a book. “As I reread those letters, I thought there was a written history here of the relationship that I had with my son, Tyler,” he said, noting how his son was diagnosed with autism when he was 9 months old. Tyler is now 29. A diagnosis of autism in the 1980s was different than it was today. “I had no idea what it (autism) was,” he said. “There was no Google. TURN TO AUTHOR ON 7

RANCHO SANTA FE — At the Feb. 1 Rancho Santa Fe board of directors meeting, Joe Gabaldon, regional public affairs manager for SDG&E, brought members up to speed on the utility pole replacement project. The purpose for the project is threefold: safety, modernization and technology upgrades. Gabaldon called the $10 million project an investment in the community. A total of 70 poles will be replaced with steel, 10 of which will be installed via a helicopter due to issues such as terrain. Despite the explanation, Association board President Fred Wasserman told Gabaldon that he was not happy about the project. “This has been expressed by most members of the Association,” he said, adding that the preference was undergrounding the utilities. Wasserman said that he recognized the safety issue and was not challenging that. “Our displeasure was that there was no discussion or dialogue with the community,” Wasserman said. “It would have been helpful if we had input and consideration.” He said a combination of undergrounding and steel poles would have been more favorable. “This is a disheartening experience for this board and community,” he said. “We understand you are well-intentioned, but this is not a great thing for us to experience.” Currently, SDG&E work crews have a project staging area located on Calzada del Bosque.

Wet, wild time was had by all hit the road

e’louise ondash


ometimes ignorance is bliss. I'm glad I didn't understand what I was about to do. I just followed my daughter up six flights of stairs, anticipating a fun, fast, but not suck-yourbreath-away ride. At the top, we boarded the four-person yellow rubber raft, grabbed ahold of the handles, and with a shove from the attendant, were off. Holy #*@$!!!! Let’s just say there was a lot of screaming, squealing, gasping and breath-holding (mostly on my part) as the gushing water propelled us through the tunnel, spun us around, dropped our raft into a free-fall and spit us out at the bottom of the big yellow tube. Now I get why they call this ride the Howlin' Tornado. It was our first day of a three-day weekend at Great Wolf Lodge waterpark in Garden Grove, and after taking on the Tornado, I knew I had to pace myself. The rest

of my family did it the right way; they worked up to the Tornado. They began with the Totem Towers — open, three-story, body slides that are a whole bunch of slippery fun, but don’t make you wonder whether you’ll survive. My husband and I were celebrating a milestone anniversary and needed a destination that would appeal to three generations. Having been to Great Wolf Lodge in 2016, we decided to re-visit. In the end, even the oldest among us admitted a good time was had by all. Southern California comes late to the Great Wolf Lodge experience. Most of the 14 waterparks are in the East and Midwest, but the West is catching up. There are lodges in Washington and Colorado, and one under construction in Scottsdale, Arizona. The waterpark, hotel and restaurants are fully geared for family fun. The ample variety of rooms sleep up to eight and each has a microwave, larger-than-average hotel frig and ample shelf space. Prices include waterpark admission and sizable discounts are available if you book at least 60 days ahead. All guests get water-

proof wristbands that unlock room doors and conveniently (maybe too much so!) pay for food, entertainment and souvenirs. (At check-in, be sure to designate which wristbands can be used to charge goods and services.) After the 11 a.m. checkout, families can stay on at the waterpark for no extra charge. There are plenty of lifeguards throughout the 105,000-square-foot indoor waterpark, where guests plow through 7,000 to 9,000 towels daily. And surprisingly, the park uses only 565,000 gallons of filtered, heated and treated water

that continuously circulates — less than what is in an Olympic-sized pool. Kids qualify for various rides and elements according to size, which is indicated by an additional wristband. When everyone is thoroughly waterlogged, there are other entertainment forums like miniature golf, 3-D movies, the fantasy game MagiQuest, and free daily activities are held in various areas around the resort. When it comes to food, special attention is given to those with special needs in the five restaurants. Rice flour is substituted for wheat

flour in all fried foods and other recipes, and “guests have absolutely no idea that these are gluten free,” said Chef Hany Ali, who has been at the theme park since it opened. “We have designated allergy areas in our kitchen. We are a 100 percent nutand peanut-free facility. We also have gluten-free bread puddings and vegan chocolate cake. You try it and you’ll never think there is a difference.” Accommodating those with special needs is the current trend in the restaurant business, Hany explained. He works with local culinary

schools teaching students how to do this because “demand requires that schools shift gears because there are so many people with allergies. This is the direction the world is going in. If you have allergies, we don’t punish you.” Visit www.greatwolf. com or call 888.960.9653. Special activities offered during Spring-a-Palooza celebration March 9 to April 15.

Gas tax boost key to getting Trump infrastructure cash


Time to join the 21st century By Marie Waldron

Many California state agencies are burdened with archaic procedures that often get in the way of efficient public service. That’s why I have introduced Assembly Bill 2087, which will require all state agencies to establish modernization goals with specified objectives no later than Jan. 1, 2020. The bill seeks to establish flexible, family-friendly workplaces and efficient, streamlined processes in a way that will enhance cybersecurity, save money, reduce emissions, improve public transparency, encourage the use of cloud computing and other innovative new technologies, and enhance efficiency in all state operations. These technological innovations will help the legislative, judicial and executive branches operate more efficiently, encourage more women to participate in the workforce, and ensure greater transparency. They will also save taxpayer dollars. These innovations are long overdue for all state agencies, including the one

I’m most familiar with, the State Legislature. By using innovative new technological capabilities such as telecommuting, digital committee and floor systems and electronic calendars, we can drastically increase efficiencies, reduce paperwork and pollution, and save money spent on legislative operations. As many of you know, trying to deal with the state’s cumbersome bureaucracy can be a time consuming, even maddening process. It’s surprising how our state, which sees itself as a national example to be emulated in so many other areas, can lag so badly when it comes to the use of technology in its daily operations. California is too big and diverse to allow antiquated procedures, which in some cases date back to the 19th century, to impede citizen involvement. California’s government needs to join the 21st century. Passage and implementation of AB 2087 will be a big step in that direction. Minority Floor Leader Marie Waldron, R-Escondido, represents the 75th Assembly District in the California Legislature.


Why the surprise over school’s reaction? Do you remember the movie “Casablanca”? The recent article regarding the application of the same-sex family to the Santa Fe Christian School (“Same-sex family says Christian school discouraged application,” See story on Page 6) reminded me of a scene in that movie. In the movie, at Rick’s (casino) the police chief disingenuously exclaims he is shocked to find there is gambling going on in a casino. The Mosca/Bosse family says they were “shocked” that a Bible-centered Christian school discouraged their application because their homosexual relationship is contrary to the very biblical values the school seeks to advance? Seriously?! I can understand the disappointment, but after reading the school’s statement of faith, published on its website, it is obvious the school would be acting contrary to it’s widely known Bible-centered Christian purpose and admission criteria, by accepting the application. Why would anyone be surprised?

There was no animosity or hate indicated here, but a valid difference of opinion about marriage and family; traditional (biblical) beliefs vs. modern secular attitudes. Traditional values are not negated by simply labeling them “antiquated” and modern does not necessarily mean better. It is unfair to ask to join an organization, in this case a school, and expect they adapt their published principles to suit you, then claim “discrimination” when they stand by their convictions. In our secular, diverse society, tolerance is a widely promoted virtue, but tolerance is not the same as approval or acceptance. All of us tolerate various viewpoints — but we do not accept them as all equally correct. Tolerance is a two-way street. If you would not have a religious community impose their views on you, you should not impose your own on them. David Reagan Cardiff-by-the-Sea

trong ironies are playing out today as California’s 14 Republican members of Congress support President Trump’s announced $1.5 trillion infrastructure plan at the same time they all back a planned ballot initiative to repeal the state’s new gasoline and diesel fuel tax increase. For without the higher gas tax, California may see little or none of Trump’s announced cash. No state needs more work on its infrastructure than this one, where more than 1,300 bridges of various sizes and shapes require seismic retrofitting and potholes are common on every type of road from country lanes to major urban freeways. But if the gas and diesel tax increase disappears, California will have little chance of getting even close to its fair share of the purported new money. That’s because Trump’s announced $1.5 trillion actually amounts to less than 20 percent of that amount, about $200 billion in federal matching money to be allocated over 10 years after Congress passes the plan, if it ever does. The other 86 percent would come from state and local coffers. Because of high public employee pension requirements and other higher-priority spending, not much cash is likely to be on hand here when needed to match and catch the federal dollars. This reality doesn’t faze Republicans trying to reverse the fuel tax increase, amounting to 12 cents per gallon of gasoline and 20 cents for diesel. It also raises vehicle license fees on virtually every car and truck in the state. Those tax increases barely got through the Legislature last year and

california focus thomas d. elias are the reason for the current recall effort against Democratic state Sen. Josh Newman of Fullerton, without whose vote the hikes would have failed. Republicans, especially current GOP California House members desperately clinging to their seats, believe they need the fuel tax reversal measure to survive. That’s because it now looks like they may not have a candidate on the November ballot for either governor or the U.S. Senate, which could badly depress Republican turnout just when at least seven GOP seats seem seriously threatened by strong anti-Trump sentiment. So Bakersfield’s Kevin McCarthy, the House majority leader, put $100,000 of his campaign funds into the drive to qualify the gas tax repeal for that same November ballot. Devin Nunes of Tulare, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, kicked $50,000 into the campaign. Reps. Mimi Walters of Irvine and Ken Calvert of Corona are in for $25,000 each, so far. None of them, meanwhile, opposes Trump’s plan, which likely wouldn’t do much for California unless the gas tax stands. Trump, meanwhile, downplays the requirement for state and local taxpayers to provide the vast majority of his infrastructure funding. “For too long,” he said, “lawmakers have invested in infrastructure inefficiently, ignored critical

needs and allowed it to deteriorate.” His plan would change that, he claimed. Responded state Treasurer John Chiang, currently running third in every poll in the race for governor, “This is a sham of a proposal that offers too little and asks too much. … Given the fact that California has at least $850 billion in public works that must be built or repaired, the President’s $200 billion national investment is no better than spit in the ocean.” It’s even worse than that if the new gas, diesel and vehicle license tax hikes disappear. The 65 percent of those levies earmarked for highways alone will amount to more than $3 billion per year. That’s not much compared with California’s current needs, but it probably is enough to fix the state’s most urgent problems, when combined with previous gas tax money and especially if it’s increased by 20 percent ($600 million yearly) with some of the Trump money. So the Republican House members pushing and helping fund the gas tax repeal effort are essentially working against the interests of their constituents even as they seek to motivate them to vote. This is nothing new for many of them: Most backed Trump’s tax changes last fall even though some acknowledged those so-called reforms would harm the majority of their constituents. Knowingly casting votes counter to the interests of their own districts, then, is nothing new for these folks. The only real question is when they might do it again if they’re reelected.

Towers’ legacy lives on with Freedom Dogs and Marines jay paris

sports talk


og gone it, we already miss Kevin Towers. That was the prevalent feeling from those saying goodbye to Towers on Sunday. Towers, the Padres’ general manager for 14 years who passed away recently from cancer at age 56, was celebrated in a nearly three-hour memorial service at Petco Park. But his legacy lives on with Freedom Dogs and more about that below. More than 20 speakers illustrated Towers’ passion for others. Towers, a Leucadia resident, always took an interest in everyone, regardless of one’s position. From the Padres president to a Padres usher, Towers treated everyone the same. Theo Epstein relayed just that, and yep he’s the same guy to bring world championships to two title-starved cities. Before directing the Boston Red Sox to two World Series and breaking the 108year curse for the Chicago Cubs as the team president, Epstein was a Padre. Although as a 21-year-old intern in the public relations department, Epstein was a puny Padre. “I was just a peon,” Epstein said. “But nobody was a peon to KT.” Towers, who seldom agreed with a barkeep’s last call, took a

liking to Epstein. Part of the reason was Epstein’s status as a college kid living large in San Diego. While the spirited Towers was happily married to Kelley, the love of his life, he relished hearing of Epstein’s weekend exploits in Pacific Beach. “We would sit down in his office on Monday morning and go over them in fine detail,” Epstein said with a hearty laugh. It was no joke that in Epstein, Towers saw potential. Towers hijacked Epstein from the PR staff and got him into baseball operations. That sounds flashy, but it

meant Epstein worked the radar gun behind home plate at Qualcomm Stadium. Still it was an opportunity that Towers offered, Epstein seized and that’s why Epstein will never buy a drink in Boston or Chicago again. Imagine if Towers’ reading of a green Epstein was amiss? Maybe the Red Sox and Cubs are still seeking those elusive rings. Towers’ way with players and how he constructed a squad was just as keen. He directed the Padres to the 1998 World Series and four NL West titles. Without that run to the World Series, maybe

Petco Park isn’t built with the taxpayers’ help. But Towers, who once pitched at MiraCosta College, would be just as interested in erecting a doghouse than a ballpark. Towers’ affection for dogs, especially his friendly English bulldogs, was legendary. Brian Cashman, the Yankees’ general manager, told the story of sharing a bed with Arlo, one of Towers’ bulldogs. Cashman said after a few beverages with the Towers one night, he asked to remain at their house. No problem, but Cashman

would have a bedmate in Arlo. Cashman shrugged, crashed and woke up next to a puddle in the sheets. It came courtesy of Arlo, but it was too rich a story for the rest of the baseball world not to hear. When the tale made the rounds, it was Cashman who couldn’t hold his liquor and had wet the bed. Man, that yarn wagged Towers’ tail when he told it. And few things made the patriotic Towers happier than helping U.S. military personnel. That’s why on his memorial program was a request to donate to Freedom Dogs. Freedom Dogs works with Camp Pendleton Marines, pairing service animals with men and women returning from combat. The dogs become a critical part of the Marines’ rehabilitation, aiding in the recovery from post-traumatic stress. “When Kevin heard about Freedom Dogs it was something he wanted to be a part of,” Kelley said. “It was a way for him to help our veterans and he always had a love for animals.” Freedom Dogs held its signature event at the Del Mar Country Club on Thursday, with Towers’ legacy saluted by a roomful of appreciative Marines. How Towers loved America, baseball and dogs and is there a sweeter triple play? Now imagine the smile on Towers’ tanned face if you toast him by donating at www. freedomdogs.org.

Fire Protection District takes part in Love Your Heart Day Woman killed crossing I-5 on foot SOLANA BEACH — A woman fleeing the scene of a predawn North County freeway collision was fatally struck by a third vehicle Feb. 23 while trying to run across Interstate 5, authorities reported.

RANCHO SANTA FE — While couples were celebrating Valentine’s Day, another happening on Feb. 14 was Love Your Heart Day. This annual event encourages various organizations across the nation to offer individuals a free blood pressure screening. Taking part in the day was the Rancho Santa Fe Fire Protection District which offered blood pressure checks at the Rancho Santa Fe Library. “Love Your Heart Day is a countywide initiative to get out and get as many blood pressures checked as possible,” said Julie Taber, public education coordinator for the fire protection district. “So, agencies all throughout the county are out at libraries, street corners, parks, all other kinds of locations.” Taber said earlier in the day, they were at 4S Ranch for a couple of hours. She said it was a busy day on Feb. 14 because at lunchtime, they headed back to the central station for promotions and a new hires badge-pinning ceremony. The district stayed at the library for a few hours. At the library, Taber said they’d performed a number of blood pressure screenings. In fact, staff members from the Rancho Santa Fe Association took the short walk to get screened. “We’ve had several walk-ins, so it’s been nice,” Taber said.

entering the freeway from Lomas Santa Fe Drive, CHP public-affairs Officer Mark Latulippe said. The driver of the Hyundai, believed to be in her 30s or early 40s, pulled to a stop on the interstate, then got out and ran off to the west. The woman managed to make it across the northbound side of the interstate and, after climbing over a center-divider wall, crossed three southbound lanes before a Ford Fiesta struck and killed her, the officer said. No other injuries were reported. — City News Service

For the most part, not many who were screened were surprised with their numbers. Taber said most people are somewhat aware of what their blood pressure numbers are. “And that’s what we want,” she said. “The point of today is to find out what your numbers are so that we can track them and keep

track of whether or not you’re going up or down.” Those who got screened were given paperwork with their blood pressure results so that they could discuss those numbers further with their doctor. “And we are prepared if necessary to transport somebody if their blood pressure is just way too

high,” said Taber, adding that has never happened at their events but she believed it has occurred in other parts of the county. Taber said she hoped that Love Your Heart Day conveyed how important it is for people to know their blood pressure numbers to help promote good heart health.

2 arrests over alleged threats to high school

Same-sex family: Christian school discouraged application By Aaron Burgin

SOLANA BEACH — When Matt Bosse began looking for a middle school for his 10-year-old, Garrett, several friends told him to consider Santa Fe Christian Middle School, a school known for rigorous academics, proud athletics and a Bible-based curriculum. After all, they said, Garrett is a high-character, straight-A student at Olivenhain Pioneer Elementary School, an altar boy at his Episcopalian Church and plays competitive lacrosse. So it came as a surprise, Bosse said, when school admissions director Vicki O’Rourke discouraged him from applying because they weren’t the type of family that would be welcome at the school. The reason, Bosse said? Because Garrett has two fathers. Bosse’s spouse is Encinitas City Councilman Joe Mosca, who became the city’s first openly gay council member when he was appointed in 2017. Bosse and Mosca said they were “shocked” and “disappointed” by the school’s decision, which they called outdated. “It was the first time in our experience that we have faced that sort of discrimination,” Bosse said. “We respect SFC and their right to run the school, but in this day in age, it seems antiquated.” Mosca echoed Bosse’s sentiments. “When they told us that we weren’t invited to apply because we were two dads it was shock to us,” Mosca said. “Hopefully by telling our story it can effect some change.” Santa Fe Christian Middle School Director Todd Deveau said in a statement that the school doesn’t comment on specific admission decisions, but commented on the school’s admissions practices. “While we do not provide details on matters involving students or prospective students, I can say that our policy is to encourage the family of any student committed to academic excellence and spiritual development to apply,” Deveau wrote. “As a matter of practice, we do not attempt to persuade or dissuade prospective families from ap-

plying. “At the same time, as part of the admissions process, we make clear to prospective applicants that they will be joining a Bible-based community designed to disciple students to embrace biblical truth,” Deveau’s statement continued. “This is our mission and our purpose, and a vital component of the SFCS experience.” According to the school’s website, Santa Fe Christian’s admissions season begins in October, and includes two rounds of applications, an entrance exam and a family interview. The goal, according to the website, is to “match students/families with our school mission statement by evaluating applicants on the spiritual, academic and behavioral requirements identified in the admissions criteria.” Among the four-prong admissions criteria is “spiritual commitment,” which requires one parent to be a Christian and at least one parent and the child currently attend a “Christ-centered” church, and show a sustained commitment to said church, including pastoral references. Parents must also agree with the school’s statement of faith and provide a written Christian testimony, although it is preferred that both parents provide written faith testimonies. Parents must also sign a socalled “Parent Commitment Form” that indicates their support and compliance with the philosophy, statement of faith, spiritual goals, policies, practices and objectives of the schools. The admissions criteria also includes a behavior section. While the section only specifically calls out drugs and alcohol use as a disqualifying offense (prospective students must be drug and alcohol free for a full semester before being admitted) and does not call out homosexuality, it includes a requirement that “students and parents must exhibit behavior, both in and out of school, that is consistent with SFCS’ Christian values.” Mosca said that he and Bosse regularly attend St. Andrews Epis-

copal Church in Encinitas, where Garrett is an active volunteer at the church’s homeless shelter. Both Bosse and Mosca said they were raised in devout Catholic families. The family stressed that they are very happy with the public school education they are receiving at OPE, but with their oldest heading to middle school, they wanted to explore all of the different options. Both men said that when they told the friends who had encouraged them to consider Santa Fe Christian — parents at OPE who had attended the private school themselves — they, too, were shocked. “We have a lot of really amazing people in our lives that we trust and respect and that have actually gone to the school or have sent kids to the school, and they don’t know that that is the policy,” Mosca said. “And they would never support that policy.” “It would be surprising if the Santa Fe Christian community knew they (admissions directors) were delivering this type of message,” Bosse added. “Most of our friends involved with the school don’t practice that type of Christianity.” Unlike public schools, which fall under both federal and state anti-discrimination laws such as Title IX and Title VI of the Civil Rights Act, private schools that don’t accept federal or state funding have no such protections, experts said. Courts have ruled that religious schools are exempt from those statutes because they would infringe on the school and parent church’s free right to exercise its religious beliefs.

In California, the Unruh Act bars discrimination based on sex, race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, age, disability, medical condition, genetic information, marital status or sexual orientation by businesses. The courts in 2009, however, have ruled that the laws don’t apply to private religious schools because they aren’t businesses. Paul Castillo is a senior attorney and students’ rights strategist with Lambda Legal, the nation’s oldest and largest LGBTQ legal organization. Castillo said that nationally, the current administration has emboldened discrimination of LGBTQ students, both by individuals and institutions. “You have an Administration that continues to erode protections for LGBT people in every facet of life,” Castillo said. “It sends a horrible message that discrimination aimed at vulnerable populations is not only acceptable; it’s encouraged. “The sad reality is that LGBT students, many of whom are bullied, harassed and suffer discrimination at a private religious organizations have very few options,” Castillo said. Bosse and Mosca both said they weren’t looking to punish the school or to force them to admit Garrett. They just wanted to raise public awareness to the fact that discrimination of this kind still exists. “We actually appreciate them being up front about it,” Bosse said. “The last thing we want to do is subject our son to any discrimination. It’s just sad that it still exists.”

SAN DIEGO — A 16-year-old boy was arrested Feb. 23 on suspicion of threatening a shooting at Torrey Pines High School, a day after a 14-year-old THPS freshman was arrested for allegedly making threatening verbal and written statements toward the campus, police said. The Feb. 23 threat, made public by police for the first time Feb. 26, involved a juvenile who did not attend the high school, San Diego police acting Capt. Paul Phillips said. Juvenile-service officers from SDPD were made aware some time Feb. 23 that the unidentified 16-year-old allegedly “made a threat to conduct a shooting at the school,” Phillips said. Officers immediately launched an investigation that identified the non-student suspect. “The juvenile was located, a search of his residence was conducted and no firearms were located,” Phillips said. “The subject was taken to juvenile hall.” That arrest came a day after a 14-year-old freshman at the school was questioned and later arrested about threats he allegedly made, SDPD public-affairs Officer Joshua Hodge said. After interviewing the 14-year-old about the purported comments, which had led to his suspension from school on Feb. 21, juvenile-services officers arrested him on suspicion of issuing criminal threats and took him to juvenile hall for booking. Both suspects' names were withheld because they are minors. Details on the nature of the alleged threatening statements were not made public. ­— City News Service

Solana Beach skate park gets $8,000 donation Golf weekend to benefit By Bianca Kaplanek

SOLANA BEACH — The Solana Beach Civic and Historical Society presented the city with what its president, Michele Stribling, called “a gift from the heart” on Valentine’s Day. The $8,000 donation for a proposed skate park at La Colonia Park narrows the funding gap for the approximately $821,000 project to about $158,000. “It’s a project a lot of people are looking forward to so the contribution is just really, really valued,” Councilman Dave Zito said. The gift brings the society’s total contribution to the park to $10,000. The additional money came mostly from the organization’s annual holiday boutique. “The proceeds from this fundraiser allow us to benefit worthy projects,” corresponding secretary Cindi Clemons said at the Feb. 14 council meeting. The Civic and Historical Society offers monthly programs for members, residents and the public. In

October it highlighted the history of skateboarding in Solana Beach going back to the 1960s. Local notables included Lenore Dale, who spoke on behalf of her brother, local professional skateboarder Tony Hawk. Sean Glatts explained how the sport had given him the confidence and drive to achieve his goals. The 17-year-old Solana Beach resident also shared the video of him setting a mark recognized by the Guinness World Records when rode his board 736 feet on two wheels last August. Councilman Mike Nichols described his journey as a young, sponsored skateboarding competitor. “You inspired many of us to look beyond just the joys and the myths about the sport to the underlying lessons a teen can learn about responsibility, leadership and becoming an independent young adult,” Clemons said. “Your stories and contributions add

a great deal to the importance of the skate park in Solana Beach and touched many of our members.” A two-phase plan to upgrade La Colonia Community Center and Park approved in 2008 included a skate park. But the entire project stalled when the funding source was eliminated by Gov. Jerry Brown. A few years ago a group of residents successfully lobbied the city to complete another planned element — an honor courtyard for veterans — separately from the major project. Skateboarders followed suit. SITE Design, which has designed skate parks worldwide, held two workshops that allowed skaters to design their ideal park. Based on their input, the park will include elements such as a bowl pocket, three-stair set with rails, China bank, stamped-brick quarter-pipe, pole jam and four-stair set with “Hubba” ledges. The linear, plaza-style

nature will allow for greater use by all-level skaters. There will also be a donor recognition wall with names engraved on plaques resembling skateboards. Nichols said project drawings are about 70 percent complete and “they look fantastic.” Construction bids were scheduled to be advertised for 35 days beginning the week of Feb. 19, with a contract expected to be awarded in April. Construction could start in June and will take about nine months to complete. The city has committed $515,000 to the project. The Tony Hawk Foundation, Solana Beach Sunset Run, Surfing Madonna Beach Run and Solana Beach Civic and Historical Society have donated a total of $36,000. Various fundraisers have brought in $12,000, and the county awarded the city $100,000 for the skate park from the Neighborhood Reinvestment Program.

Free yourself of stubborn fat by summer ENCINITAS — Those pockets of fat we all have can be so stubborn. No matter how well you eat or how often you exercise, it can seem impossible to spot treat some areas on our bodies and summer is already around the corner. You’re doing everything right, but those love handles or inner thighs belie all of your hard work. Or the fat under your chin that you can’t hide with clothing, that lower abdomen pooch that seems to expand with every passing birthday. “What you might have been working for months or years to eradicate we can actually accomplish in just 12 weeks,” Dr. Georgine Nanos of Kind Health Group said. SculpSure Laser Therapy is the most effective fat melting technology on the market today and it’s not just the results that make it superior to its predecessors. “It’s non-invasive, there is no downtime and the procedure itself takes only 25 minutes per area,” Dr. Nanos said. “Anyone committed to a healthy lifestyle is a good can-

didate for SculpSure. It is ideal for both men and women who have been working hard to achieve their ideal body weight through mindful nutrition and vigorous exercise but continue to have stubborn pockets of fat.” This is not a weight loss short cut by any means. SculpSure is the first FDA-cleared laser treatment for non-invasive fat reduction of the abdomen, back, chin, flanks, inner thighs and outer thighs. “The treatment uses a laser that targets and heats up fat cells under the skin without affecting the skin itself,” Dr. Nanos said. “It damages the fat cells’ structural integrity and they become naturally removed through the lymphatic system. It clears out the degraded fat cells over the course of six weeks after the treatment. And as long as you maintain your weight, you will have permanent results.” Unlike earlier technologies, SculpSure’s results are consistent. “We see a lot of patients who had previous fat reduction procedures that end-

Ewwwww! About a week after an 11-year-old boy scraped his elbow while playing in a tidal pool on a California beach, pediatricians treating him for the resulting abscess removed a small, hard object and were surprised to discover a live checkered periwinkle marine snail, according to United Press International. Dr. Albert Khait and his colleagues at Loma Linda University wrote in BMJ Case Reports that a snail's egg had apparently become embedded in the boy's skin when he scraped it. The mollusk later hatched inside the abscess. Dr. Khait said the boy took the snail home as a pet, but it did not

ed up creating indentations is the treated areas.” Dr. Nanos said. “We are able to help correct those outcomes using SculpSure’s heat technology which allows the effect to fan out beyond the treated area. It gives very smooth results. It doesn’t just treat where the paddles are placed, it reaches 30 percent beyond the targeted area for a natural look.” Most patients achieve their desired results with two treatments spaced six weeks apart. “You’ll see optimal results in 12 weeks — just in time for summer!” Dr. Nanos said. “We do the procedure

right here in the office and keep you extremely comfortable. And less than 30 minutes later, you can go on with your normal day and activities.” In fact, SculpSure treatments are so unobtrusive that at least one patient forgot she had even had it done. “One of our most satisfied patients came in because she had always struggled with stubborn fat in her inner thighs despite daily exercise and a healthy diet,” Dr. Nanos said. “Her thighs always rubbed together and it really bothered her.

There was no internet.” Williams said he found one book on autism in the bookstore and a couple of books on it in the library. From there, it was a matter of researching medical journals and teaming up with medical specialists. For Williams, his novel, “Hugs,” was always there because of the letters. It took a few years to write the manuscript, and much of what he experienced in his life with his son is reflected in the book. While the roots of the story are about a father trying to find ways to communicate with his autistic son, the father discovers he has a unique power. He has the ability to reverse autism in children by hugging them. While every hug helps a child, it diminishes the father’s mortality. He loses a bit of his life each time. And if he hugs his son, he will completely lose the power of the hug. “As the book progresses, there is a moral dilemma,” he said. “If the father continues to do this, he’s eventually going to lose his life. So, the question becomes, “How do you say no? How do you not treat the child that you so desperately want, your son?” The book also addresses all the different challenges that this family faces

Lawrence Williams when the rest of the public figures out he can do this. Williams said he had some goals to address when crafting the book. The first was conveying the challenges that people face with a child with autism. “There’s a lot of self-imposed loneliness,” he said. “There’s a terrific loss

of spontaneity. You can’t just pick up and go if you have an autistic child because they may throw a fit. They may not like the shirt you put on them, or they may not want to wear shoes that day.” When his wife, Nina, read the manuscript a wave of emotion washed over her. “After the tears, I realized there were so many things we did go through that I just forgot,” she said. “And it all came back.” She found her husband’s work very touching. For Williams, his character who could change the life of a child with a hug was a vehicle to introduce readers to autism. It was to raise awareness. “My whole intent for this book is for people to realize that there’s so much potential there if they get past the fear of asking a question or getting involved somehow,” he said. The book also offers a sense of hope. Williams and his wife were told that their son would never speak. They were told wrong. Tyler can also read, write and do math. Williams encourages parents who have just discovered their child has autism to move forward with early prevention and education. And above all, to never lose hope. “Hugs” is available on Amazon and the Balboa Press Online Bookstore.

then went on with her busy life and didn’t give it much thought. About five weeks later she woke up and looked at herself in the bathroom mirror and realized she could see daylight between her thighs, which was something she hadn’t been able to do since she was 7. She was overwhelmed with joy.” SculpSure, as with other aesthetic procedures, has the best results in conjunction with an accountable lifestyle. “Part of our Kind Connected Care membership program focuses heavily on health coaching and mindful nutrition for our patients to help them achieve their health goals,” Dr. Nanos said. “The cornerstone philosophy of Kind Connected Care is to make a meaningful, positive and lasting impact in people’s lives by improving their overall health. One the most effective ways to do this is by holding them accountable. We recognize that every individual is in a different place on their journey to optimal health. When you sign up for our program we are

prepared to walk with you on that journey. After an initial assessment with a health coach, we develop a customized plan tailored to your specific needs. At that point we get you set up with our coaching app. It can sync with your wearable devices such as a Fitbit or Apple watch to track your steps as well your food intake, sleep, stressors and indulgences. There is a messaging component to it as well where you can have daily feedback from our health coach to keep you on track with your goals. We’ve seen great successes with it.” From helping to maintain a healthy weight to reversing chronic diseases like high cholesterol and diabetes, the team works closely with patients on a consistent basis to ensure they get the support they need to be successful.

phase one, which is substation improvements on Via De La Valle. Phase two is pole replacements which are currently underway. The last and final stage, phase three, will be presented to the Association board in the late spring. Board member Rick Sapp wanted to know how long the helicopters would be hovering for those 10 poles. Gabaldon said the average time per pole was five to seven minutes. According to Gabaldon, project preparation lasted a couple of years before crews began the work. Covenant residents in attendance also expressed concerns about the large steel poles being placed near in areas deemed state historical landmarks. Undergrounding the utilities would have been more satisfactory, they said. Gabaldon said that while undergrounding is a costly option, two avenues the Ranch can pursue are

through the Rancho Santa Fe Community Services District or the “20A” with San Diego County. In the latter case, the Association would work with the county — and the county would ultimately determine if the Ranch qualified for funding. Gabaldon said this type of funding was allocated toward cities based on priority, such as fire hazards. One such area is Sill Hill. “Sill Hill gets consistent winds of over 80 mph winds,” he said, adding how those types of dollars are prioritized for undergrounding utilities. “We don’t want a fire to start there and blow west.” Wasserman reiterated that there are a lot of Covenant residents unhappy about the project. “We know you are too far along in your decisions and not interested in what our community has to say,” he said. “Come back to us with a proposal with poles you are not replacing for undergrounding.”

Local airline seeking investors as it preps for take-off CARLSBAD — Ted Vallas has a sky-high vision for North County. The 96-year-old businessman and owner of California Pacific Airlines is calling out to the community to take part. As his airline prepares for take-off out of Carlsbad’s McClellan-Palomar Airport, he is seeking local investors for early boarding, so to speak. It is paramount to Vallas that the community participates in CP Air. “I want this to be a North County owned and operated airline,” he said. “I am a great believer in the community being behind this operation and getting involved.” For Phase 1 of operations, CP Air looks to offer commercial flights to San Jose, Sacramento, Oakland, Phoenix, Tucson, Reno and Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Phase 2 will include service to Utah, Houston and various other cities. “We are looking to start operations

in early summer,” Paul Hook, COO and executive vice president, said. “We will be starting with Embraer 145 aircraft, which will give us quick turnarounds. We can make several flights a day.” Currently the airline is awaiting county approval before flights can begin, which Vallas anticipates will happen soon. “We are fully certificated for full scheduled service and char-

ter authorization,” Vallas said. “So we will start even if we are still waiting for the county. We are available and ready to fly today if we are called to do so.” “The county is still doing its required due diligence, checking the environmental status,” Hook said. “We understand that really is the controlling factor as to when we can start scheduled service.” Vallas’ call to the com-

munity to be a part of CP Air did not go unheeded. John Barkley, the new CFO of CP Air, read about the investment opportunity and jumped at the chance to be a part of local history. “My father was one of the last presidents of the old PSA airline,” Barkley said. He wrote Vallas a letter, and soon he came on board utilizing his experience as an attorney with a background in tax and accounting. “I grew up in the airline industry. I never thought we would have another hometown airline in San Diego. The people in our region are fiercely loyal. Now that the Chargers have left, it feels like we have a hole in the community, we all want something to root for. CP Air gives North County a hometown team to be proud of.” Along with pride, CP Air is poised to have plenty of benefits to the area. “We are looking forward

to bringing additional employment, tax revenues and airport recognition,” Hook said. CP Air will bring an estimated 150 jobs to North County in its first year, which could multiply to 1,000 local jobs by year four. “Our market area is about 50 percent business people up and down and all

FACE welcomes items for 8th annual Bags & Baubles By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — FACE’s eighth annual Bags & Baubles silent auction on April 29 is right around the corner. The event venue is a private estate in Rancho Santa Fe. The FACE Foundation, a nonprofit based in Sorrento Valley, is calling on all its supporters for any new or gently loved designer handbags, jewelry and accessories, such as sunglasses. While Bags & Baubles offers a unique shopping experience, it is also supporting animals in need. “FACE provides lifesaving grants to pet owners who can’t afford emergency veterinary care. We help with

one-time emergency treatments for pets that have immediately life-threatening conditions,” Executive Director Danae Davis said. An example emergency surgery that Davis cited was a dog swallowing a ball, otherwise known as a foreign body obstruction. If a pet does not undergo an emergency surgery, it won’t survive. According to Davis, many pet owners don’t realize that veterinarians need payment before any emergency treatment. “If somebody can’t afford treatment or surgery, the most humane thing to do would be to euthanize the pet,” Davis said. “That’s

unfortunate and, leaves the owners in a grieving state. So what FACE aims to do is end what we call ‘economic euthanasia,’ which is when somebody can’t afford to save their pet simply due to financial situations.” Sharon Howland and her dachshund, Lulu, now 14, were recipients of a FACE grant in 2010. One day, Lulu was in severe pain, and Howland brought her to an emergency veterinary hospital in Carlsbad. Her previous veterinarian told Howland that Lulu had a lower back injury. That wasn’t the case at all. The emergency hospital revealed it was her dog’s neck. “The hospital couldn’t

let Lulu go home because she was suffering so bad,” Howland said with tears in her eyes. “I didn’t know what to do. Somebody at the front desk said there was a place called the FACE Foundation and I could apply for a grant.” Within two hours, Lulu was in surgery and it was a success. “Lulu was perfect after that — I mean there’s no way that I could have afforded the surgery,” Howland said. “My husband at that time was out of work, and we were really struggling. And I had already spent so much at the other vet on medication for Lulu’s back.” Lulu is now the official

mascot for Bags & Baubles. Davis said that the Face Foundation works with more than 150 veterinary hospitals in San Diego County. Established in 2006, FACE began offering financial assistance in 2007. In its first year, it helped financially support 10 cases. Last year, they financially assisted more than 300 pet owners. Davis suspects they will fund 350 grants in 2018. “We’re growing exponentially as the cost of veterinary medical care rises — more people are unfortunately facing this economic situation,” Davis said. “But we’re thankful that the veterinary community is starting to know more about us.”

Bags and Baubles is one of the largest fundraising events for the FACE Foundation. This year, it’s expected that 400 guests will be in attendance. In addition to donating new or gently loved designer pieces, sponsorship opportunities starting at $500 are also available at this time. Those interested in a top-tier event sponsorship at $10,000 will have a mention on KUSI News on April 21. To learn more about helping donations, sponsorships or even volunteer opportunities, call (858) 450-3223 or email events@ face4pets.org for more information.

Welcome to a Prosperous New Year Sharon Howland holds her dachshund Lulu, the Mascot for the eighth annual Bags & Baubles event in Rancho Santa Fe.

world traveler for more than 40 years, Ursula Heintz has seen more of the world than most. Her work is fresh and alive with hints of pure genius in design, format and style. “The beauty and wonder of nature interests me the most,” Heintz said. “My work not only shows beauty, but evokes a sense of wonder and mystery. My photographs uncover a hidden world that is rarely seen. Nature offers so much beauty, and it's all waiting to be found. The secret to my success lies in my travels.

Bob Coletti “Great photographs waiting to be found are everywhere. I travel, I see and then my camera becomes the tool that I use to compose and create my art.” When asked how she gets such phenomenal shots, her answer . . . “You need to be in the right place at the right time.” For more, visit www. ursulaheintz.com.

Not ready, willing or able to retire just yet small talk jean gillette


eople my age are retiring and I’m not at all pleased about it. This may be the real downside of working part-time at a public school. All the teachers my age have retired. “Oh,” they said, “I’ve been working for 30 years.” Oh yeah? Well, so have I. I just didn’t have the good sense to do it all in one place. I do seem to live my life as a lesson to others, so please take note of how I got to this retirement-free zone. First, I was a thoroughly unfocused and very late bloomer. I so envy those youngsters who know just what they want to do by the time they hit their freshman year. But that would have required research and self-discipline, so never mind.

of 24, it was an instant love affair. However, I soon discovered that you do not move swiftly up the journalism pay scale by staying at the same paper for 25 years. More importantly, I had already learned that no amount of money (not that they offered) could get me to keep any job I disliked. Finally moving back here to paradise, I settled into part-time employment with a school district, then later added part-time in a newsroom, because it suited my motherhood needs and, well, I really liked it. And part-time I have remained, on a sort of full-time basis. The motherhood needs are gone, but I just can’t convince myself that I ought to work harder. I am far, far too fond of both of my part-time positions. Great locations, great people, great product. You don’t find all that in one spot very often. Finding it in two places is extraordinary. The idea of giving either one up to take some repetitive, regular, 8-to-5 gig just horrifies me. Until someone I know re-

tires. Then I sulk. It’s then I am forced to remember that I have no golden parachute, no stock options and a husband who always worked for himself. All I seem to have accumulated are unpaid bills. That means I will continue to work until they find me face down on my computer keyboard or pinned under a runaway book cart. Given my low boredom threshold, this is just as well. Never mind that I want to take a six-month cruise to anywhere. And there is the creeping fear that one of these days, someone is going to stroll up and tell me stop drooling or they’ll have to let me go. And I’ll probably respond with “Aaaah, what do you know, you young whippersnapper?” The witty comebacks are the first thing to go.

October 9, 1951 - February 19, 2018

Mark Gallo, had been a music critic since the 1970’s. Originally from Detroit, Mark hitchiked to California in 1983 and when he got to Encinitas, he knew he had found home. He settled in to what he always referred to as paradise, a little rental house west of I-5. So close to the ocean that when the windows were opened you could hear the waves. He began freelancing for local and national publications and enjoyed a long tenure with the Coast News, writing about music. He also worked at Lou’s Re-

cords on the Coast Highway. Mark found a family in southern California in the wonderful musicians and the people he worked with, who became life long friends. Mark married his best friend on the cliffs at Torrey Pines in 1993. She was a Michigan girl and he left Encinitas for love. He always dreamed of coming back to live. He joked that he kept a suitcase packed for California under the bed, if the time was ever right. Mark and Barb raised a daughter, Maya, in Michigan. Mark continued to write about music for the rest of his life. He also earned a Master’s Degree in Social Work and worked with individuals struggling with addictions and individuals adjudicated on domestic violence charges. He had a quiet and unassuming manner and was able to help many people change their lives for the better. Mark’s final wish was that his ashes be brought back home to southern California.

The fine wines of Napa Valley’s Grgich Hills saluted at Pala Casino taste of wine

frank mangio


t’s been 40 years since Napa Valley wine pioneer Mike Grgich, the energetic 94-year-old, vaulted to the top after his wines beat the French in the historic Paris Tasting of 1976. This year, we are all benefitting from the winery’s anniversary victory lap with wine events, dinners and appearances at large tasting festivals. Grgich was 36 when he came to the Napa Valley from what is now Croatia, back in 1958, virtually penniless. Through hard work and good fortune, he is now in the Vintners Hall of Fame and the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C. All this has led to a great following among wine lovers, and Pala Casino devoted an evening to saluting his legacy and fine wines. The sold-out event was carefully coordinated by chefs of the Cave to bring out the best of the wines presented, including a Fume Blanc, Chardonnay, Zinfandel, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Pastry Chef Albert Cruz created a spe-

cial “Chocolate Creation” to combine with the Cab, a match made only at the Cave for that evening. A word about this year’s vintage Chardonnay. It is an elegant, limited production wine made to mirror the world renowned Chardonnay that defeated the French versions in the historic Paris Tastings in 1976 and instantly put Napa Valley on the world map of great wine countries. It gave Grgich the confidence to start his own winery a year later, holding to his high wine making principals of balance, elegance and food-friendliness, farmed organically and sustainably. Pala’s next wine dinner event will be Merryvale Wines from St. Helena in Napa Valley, March 15, with a reception at 7 p.m. and dinner at 7:30 p.m., in the underground Cave. Tickets are $85 each. Call (877) 9467252 and ask to book the Merryvale wine dinner.

Liberty Station has proven that with its Liberty Market, and now we have the Little Italy Food Hall preparing to be the focal point of the new Piazza della Famiglia, a block-long center of attraction in San Diego’s booming Little Italy district, set to open in the

Split panel approves new Starbucks at former KFC in New Encinitas By Aaron Burgin

ENCINITAS — A proposed drive-through Starbucks in New Encinitas received the blessing of a divided Planning Commission, as the group voted 3-2 to approve the project. Commissioners Al Apuzzo, Bruce Ehlers and Greg Drakos voted in favor of the proposal, while commission chairman Glenn O’Grady and commissioner Kevin Doyle voted against it. The new location would fill the former KFC space in the Camino Village Shopping Center along El Camino Real and replace an existing Starbucks in the same center. Staff recommended the commission approve the project over the objections of a group of neighbors who expressed concern that the drive-through would clog traffic circulation in the shopping center as well as on El Camino Real.

Residents cited the example of the city's only other drive-through location, near Leucadia Boulevard and Interstate 5, as an example of the traffic issues they were concerned would happen on El Camino Real. The general manager of the Starbucks location said that the coffee giant had taken a number of measures to ensure there wouldn’t be a repeat of the issues at the Leucadia location, which he said is one of the top 10 performing stores in the region because of its proximity to the freeway. Those measures include a longer drive-through to accommodate as many as 11 vehicles, a left-turn only drive-through entrance and signs directing guests to the entrance, and a proposal to partially block a right-turn exit to the property, which would get problematic. The planning commissioners who voted in favor

of the project included as a condition of approval that the turn be completely blocked, which will require Starbucks to receive approval from its neighboring tenants in the shopping center. A number of residents spoke at the Feb. 15 meeting in favor of the project, which they said would be more convenient for families trying to get coffee on the go. “Coffee and drive throughs are the two things that get me through my life and my day,” said Lee Fisher, who lives south of the proposed Starbucks. “I am in strong support of the proposal.” O’Grady and Doyle cited the traffic, vehicle idling and circulation issues as reasons for denying the project. “Drive throughs aren’t really good for us, they are too car-centric,” Doyle said.
