Ranch residents champion breast cancer fundraiser By Christina Macone-Greene
RANCHO SANTA FE — The Santaluz Club is turning pink thanks to two local women who are helping to raise awareness and funds for Breast Cancer Angels. The Spanish-colonial setting is a perfect venue for the April 28 afternoon soiree titled, “Brunch, Browse and Buy.” Co-chairing the event are Rancho Santa Fe residents Holli Lienau and Adrienne Falzon. “The idea behind this event is that everyone comes in, has some wine, nibbles on some brunch and then browses and buys,” said Lienau, who is also board treasurer of Breast Cancer Angels. “Twenty percent of everything purchased goes to Breast Cancer Angels.” Entertainment for the day will be classical flamenco guitarist Miles Moynier.
Breast Cancer Angels helps women (and men) battling cancer who are in need of financial support. This type of assistance ranges from food certificates, fuel, rental expenses and utilities to medical copays and more. Breast Cancer Angels is unique in that it helps patients with their specific financial needs. All proceeds go to those in need and the m o n e y raised in San Diego will go to San Diegans. According to Lienau, Breast Cancer Angels was established in the Orange County area in 1999 when two women met while
undergoing chemotherapy for breast cancer. They realized that health insurance only covered so much. “If you’re sick, you can’t go to work, but your bills are still going to be the same,” Lienau said. The original co-founders realized the financial and emotional need that many patients and their families face du r i ng this trying time. F r o m humble beginnings, a handful of people contributed $20 a month, the organization evolved. Today, Breast Cancer Angels assists well over 500 people every year in San Diego, Orange County and
the South Bay combined. It’s not a grant-driven nonprofit, so it relies on contributions from its Breast Cancer Angels and fundraiser proceeds. Currently, the nonprofit has roughly 500 angels and that number continues to grow. Lienau said last year it supported about 30 San Diego women and their 20 children. Over the last 18 years, Lienau said, a major shift has taken place. “We used to support a lot of older ladies. Now, patients are younger which is harder because they have kids,” she said. “It’s not just the 65- to 70-year-old lady getting breast cancer. The 35-year-old mom with two little kids is getting it, too.” The domino effect can be awful for patients who are unable to work. Lienau TURN TO FUNDRAISER ON 3

RANCHO SANTA FE — Rancho Santa Fe Covenant residents who violate the rules may be subject to fines approved by the Rancho Santa Fe Association board members at its last monthly board meeting. On March 1, board member Allen Finkleson said that resident comments had been received. “I looked at them, and I don’t believe any warrant changes,” he said. “I make a motion that we adopt the resolution that adopts the fine schedule.” The schedule was first proposed during a January board meeting. It was posted for 30 days to encourage member input per the Davis-Stirling Act for homeowners associations. Before the fine schedule was approved, Covenant residents who violated the rules were subject to a loss of golf and tennis privileges as well as being unable to vote for Covenant matters. Now, fines have been added to the list. The Association’s building commissioner, Tom Farrar, brought the fine schedule to the board table in January, explaining it took several months of research. They compiled material based on fines that other cities and HOAs cited for their itemized vi-
olations. “We want to give code enforcement some teeth with these numbers (fine schedule),” Farrar said in January. “And we don’t just go to the fine schedule — we try to resolve those issues.” Fine amounts were not disclosed at either the January or March board meeting. According to Association Manager Christy Whalen, the fine schedule is only provided to Covenant residents at the Association office or on the private members-only portion on the Association’s website. The fines are split between nonconstruction and construction violations. When the Association’s code enforcement officer learns of a non-construction violation, such as visual clutter, it will research the situation and try to resolve the issue via communication with the Covenant resident. If it goes unresolved, a violation notice is sent out next. Unless specified differently, there is a minimum of at least 14 days to resolve the issue. If after this time the matter is still not resolved, the member will be notified that a hearing will occur. The member will TURN TO FINES ON 9

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

throughout the West Coast,” Vallas added. “We will be bringing tourism into North County. The hotels, the restaurants will all benefit. Two local bank executives also advised me that they agree with me wanting to bring the community in as partners. Both Silvergate and FNBSocal banks asked
by the SEC to sell stock locally, and we’d like to keep it a definite low number of investors, primarily in North County.” For more information and specifics about this investing in California Pacific Airlines, please contact Ted Vallas at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (760) 436 -8919.

Local resident releases newest children’s book By Christina Macone-Greene
RANCHO SANTA FE — Imaginative. Creative. Illustrative. These are the qualities that local children’s book author Dee Leone instills in her work. Leone, a former elementary school teacher, describes herself as an amateur photographer. Still, her photos have been a springboard for ideas for her stories. Her newest work, “Nature’s Lullaby Fills the Night,” adds to her other two books titled “Dough Knights
Dee Leone and Dragons” and “Bizz and Buzz Make Honey Buns.” Leone, newcomer to Rancho Santa Fe, explained how “Nature’s Lullaby Fills the Night” is akin to a rhyming book. “It is like the world is singing a lullaby to soothe and calm little ones, so it has all kinds of nature scenes — land, sea, air,” Leone said. “Everything from even moths fluttering their powdery wings.” She said
she tries to use a lot of alliteration and different literary devices. Leone continues to hone her photography skills. She said one day she was sifting through her nature pictures, and those photos triggered her most recent work. “I was looking through them, and there was one of leaping dolphins that were off the coast of New Zealand, and there were butterflies,” Leone said. “I had all kinds of things, and I wanted to put them together into a children’s book. So, I did that and tried to use as much beautiful imagery as I could to depict the pictures.” Leone wants parents to know that her book is really for any age. However, if a child is between the ages of 3 and 7, they will understand the imagery more, she said. Leone is also hopeful that “Nature’s Lullaby Fills the Night” inspires others. “I want people to be more in touch with nature and to appreciate and take care of the environment,” she said. “I want them to look at nature as a soothing and calming type of thing that you can share with your children — a time to bond when you’re reading together.” Leone is thrilled that her illustrator used beautiful, soothing colors. “I just love the palette she used,” she said. While Leone works on her children’s books and other projects like screenplays, she is a teacher at heart. She

taught elementary grades in Texas, Ohio and California. She also served as a gifted aide in Alaska. While teaching years ago, an editor reached out to her and asked her if she was interested in writing reproducible books for teachers, which included things such as fun sheets and puzzles. One assignment morphed into 20 more. Her work has also appeared in Children’s Digest and Highlights for Children. Years after her children were born, Leone became a stay at home mom. She later decided to try her hand at children’s books. Her first picture book, “Bizz and Buzz Make Honey Buns” was released in 2014. Her second book “Dough Knights and Dragons” came out in October 2017. A few months later, “Nature’s Lullaby Fills the Night,” rolled
When parents finish reading one of Leone’s books to their children, the entertainment continues with activity kits and fun sheets. On Leone’s website, parents are navigated to these things so that the story can be brought to life once again. Leone said she is naturally pulled to writing for this age range. “It helps bring back memories of my teaching days and that was the age when my girls actually loved to sit and listen to books being read to them even when they got old enough to read,” Leone said. “My girls never got tired of listening to them.” Leone’s books can be found online at Barnes & Noble, Amazon and independent bookstores.

said that once a patient’s family goes through their savings, they can end up losing their home. “We all say that this would never happen because I have family, and I have friends. But some people don’t,” she said. “They don’t have a support system and these stories break your heart.” The need in San Diego is enormous, she said. Falzon, the co-chair and also a children’s author, became involved with Breast Cancer Angels nearly five years ago. “As I grow older, I’m really grateful for what I have,” Falzon said. “But sometimes it’s not enough just to be grateful. You have to go to the next level, and that’s giving back. However I can be of service, be it this organization or another, I’m there. What’s the point of any of this (life) unless we’re helping someone else.” Both Lienau and Falzon decided to host “Brunch, Browse and Buy” in the spring when the weather was perfect. The event timing is an optimal shopping opportunity for Mother’s Day. Falzon is a member of the Santaluz Club and secured the venue. So far, the co-chairs locked in 15 vendors. Shop-
pers will have the opportunity to peruse upscale items such as clothing, accessories, jewelry, custom artwork, soy candles and more. To date, vendors include Designer Details, Duchess of Pearls, Jacki B., Nancy Alvarez Women’s Clothing, Satori Designs,

Congress must temper Trump’s California vendetta
Banning commercial marijuana the wise choice for our cities By Craig Balben
The age of Big Marijuana is rapidly approaching. Elected officials are under pressure by marijuana activists to relax bans on marijuana businesses or face rowdy council chambers and threats of citizens initiatives. Campaigns are being funded by Big Marijuana and politicians are being cajoled, coerced and lobbied to overturn bans on commercial marijuana businesses. Some elected officials claim they are “serving the will of the voters” by advocating for marijuana because Proposition 64 (the Adult Use of Marijuana Act) was approved by 57 percent of Californians. But Prop. 64 explicitly allows local jurisdictions to make their own rules, including prohibiting commercial marijuana activity. Even in Colorado and Washington, where voters approved marijuana legalization in 2012, as many as half of the jurisdictions prohibit commercial marijuana. And just this past January, the residents of Compton, which also supported Prop. 64, rejected two local initiatives to allow pot sales with 75 percent of voters voting no. Fortunately, some local leaders are standing up to the pressures of the marijuana industry. In North County, the cities of Carlsbad, Escondido, Poway and San Marcos have stated unequivocally that they have no interest in commercial marijuana: “There is no amount of money that would make me vote to support the commercial sale of marijuana in Poway. Period,” declared Poway Mayor Steve Vaus. Councilman Barry Leonard concurred, “Poway is the safest city in the county. There’s a reason for that. We support our law enforce-
ment folks and we do what’s right to protect our children.” Cities that have made firm statements opposing commercial marijuana also seem to be facing less pressure from Big Marijuana. Cities like Oceanside, however, which formed a Medical Marijuana Ad Hoc Committee, have been inundated by pro-pot interests from every corner (farmers, distributors, dispensary owners, manufacturers, etc.), all seeing green. They are hoping Oceanside’s City Council votes on March 28 to approve all aspects of “medical” marijuana businesses — cultivation, nurseries, manufacturing, distribution, testing and dispensaries. These would be in addition to delivery services, which Oceanside approved in March 2016. Oceanside staff were directed to get input from various departments and commissions. On Feb. 20, the Police and Fire Commission voted unanimously to reject the Ad Hoc committee recommendations and support Police Chief Frank McCoy’s memo that identified concerns and concluded, “recommend that our City wait on moving forward with opening any type of dispensary.” The Economic Development Commission did not take a formal vote at its meeting on March 1, but discussed the need for tax revenue (which is currently not included) and potential impacts on tourism, such as declines in family tourism. They also recognized there is no guarantee that local farmers would stay local. Farmers could easily sell out to Big Marijuana as soon as the zoning regulations are changed. Oceanside’s Planning Commission met on March 12. The first agenda item ad-
dressed a proposed sales tax increase to fund public safety, infrastructure and local services. The flyer states, in part, “The cost of public safety is increasing every year, and Oceanside does not receive State funding for public safety. The City needs additional resources to maintain safety and our level of police officers, firefighter/paramedics and lifeguards.” Immediately following was a recommendation by staff to approve zoning regulations to allow for all types of “medical marijuana” businesses. The disconnect between the need for more public safety and approving a new industry that would negatively impact public safety appeared to be lost on commissioners, who voted 7-0 to approve the regulations and recommended relaxing them further. As a resident of Oceanside, parent and volunteer president of NCPC, one of my biggest concerns with allowing Big Marijuana to get a foothold in Oceanside is the advertising and promotion of marijuana that will inevitably lead to normalization of marijuana use. Marijuana advertising is inescapable in the city of San Diego — sign twirlers, petty cabs, billboards, news organizations, even radio stations all readily point the way to pot shops. Oceanside has been working for over 40 years to clean up its image. I hope our City Council recognizes at the March 28 meeting that a bright future for Oceanside will be found in North County leaders saying no to marijuana commercialization and normalization. Craig Balben is a resident of Oceanside and president of the North Coastal Prevention Coalition.
his has all the symptoms of a classical political vendetta: At every opportunity, President Trump does whatever he thinks might harm California, which does more to resist his agenda than any other state and which provided the vote margin that saddled him with a popular vote loss in 2016. In just one late-winter week, Trump took three such actions. First, he threatened to pull federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers out of California, predicting a massive crime wave if he did that. Then his budget director for the second straight year cut out of the next proposed federal budget all $10 million that was spent last year on an earthquake early warning system. His attorney general topped it off by filing suit to knock out California’s “sanctuary state” laws. California law enforcement for the most part greeted the “threat” of an ICE pullout with a yawn. “Do your worst,” many police chiefs seemed to say. Several had previously testified in federal hearings that fall and winter ICE raids targeting illegal immigrants everywhere from body shops to supermarket checkout lines hurt their own anti-crime efforts by diminishing cooperation and trust between immigrants and cops. And California officials from the governor down promised to fight Trump’s anti-sanctuary action. But the state’s response to the threatened quake warning cut is completely different, several members of Congress from both major parties insisting they won’t let seismic warning money disappear from the budget. “Congress has re-
california focus thomas d. elias mained steadfast in its bipartisan support for the system,” said Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff of Burbank, one of the prime thorns in Trump’s side. “I’ll work to see the project (gets funded) just as we did last year.” Said Republican Rep. Ken Calvert of Corona, who chairs an appropriations subcommittee overseeing the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), “I will continue to advocate for … the earthquake early warning system. This is a system the West Coast needs.” Of course, Trump hadn’t visited the West Coast as president until this month, when he flew to San Diego to look at border wall prototypes and headline a Beverly Hills fundraiser. In his pre-politics days as a television reality show performer, he was here often, but didn’t venture far from studio lots or his Los Angeles-area properties, not worrying much about the ground shaking. He may never have experienced a significant quake. The USGS project he seeks to quash, called ShakeAlert, would provide between 30 and 60 seconds notice before earthquakes, allowing millions of persons to get out of harm’s way. Warnings would come via radio, television, alarm sirens and a smartphone app. The system would also operate in Oregon and Washington, but the great majority of lives that might be saved are in California. No one doubts that early warnings could help greatly when (not if) the next major temblor strikes.
The extra half-minute or more would allow time to duck under desks, move away from sides of buildings that might shed bricks and stones, drive to the sides of highways and get off bridges that might collapse. Each of these things could have saved multiple lives during the1989 Loma Prieta quake and the equally devastating 1994 Northridge shock. When Trump first threatened to cut the federal contribution to this system, whose app is already being tested, state lawmakers led by Democratic Sens. Robert Hertzberg of Van Nuys and Jerry Hill of San Mateo proposed $23 million in state money to keep the project going. If the federal government pulls out of ShakeAlert – comparable systems already exist in other quake-prone countries like Japan and Taiwan – California appears ready to go it alone. For sure, those other countries have proven the technology works. The proposed Trump cut would probably delay setting up 800 new sensing stations which need to be added to 850 that already exist. The added listening posts could increase warning times by detecting earth movements at their very beginning. Here’s the irony: While Trump conducts his vendetta against California, in keeping with his frequent practice of ignoring his previous actions and statements whenever he gets that impulse, he’s nevertheless likely to attend whatever ribbon-cutting grand opening event the USGS might stage, and then try to take credit for a program he twice tried to kill.

Residents and stakeholders meet school board candidates By Christina Macone-Greene
RANCHO SANTA FE — A special candidate forum was held on March 18 at The Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club for the Rancho Santa Fe School Board special election to be held on April 24. Those vying for the vacant seat included Thomas Barton, Elise Dufresne, Steven Hughes, Jee Manghani and Jon Yonemitsu. The selected person will fill Marti Ritto’s seat. Ritto resigned on Sept. 13, 2017. The new board member will serve from May 2018 to November 2018 since Ritto’s term will reopen for November’s general election in 2018. Initially, five applicants were interviewed on Oct. 16, 2017, to fill Ritto’s vacancy. A week later, the Rancho Santa Fe School District agreed to a provisional appointment and selected Yonemitsu. On Dec. 15, Yonemitsu was recalled after a school petition was deemed valid by the San Diego County Superintendent of Schools. Petitioners wanted a special election process to choose a school board member, not a provisional appointment made by the school board. Until a new board member is voted in, the school board will operate with four trustees. Ballots were mailed beginning on March 26. Hosting the March 18 community forum were Todd and Nicole Mikles, and Bruce and Brenda Kleege. Bruce Kleege served as the evening’s moderator. Kleege thanked everyone for attending the forum on a Sunday night. His son drew candidates’ names for their 10-minute speaking order. Afterward, candidates were on hand for a Q&A. First up was Yonemitsu, a practicing attorney who specializes in litigation. He started off by saying that his appointment by the board to fill Ritto’s seat was through a lawful and ethical process. “Some people in the
Five candidates aim to fill the vacant seat left after Ritto replacement recalled in December room may disagree,” he said. Yonemitsu said the board decided to have an appointment because there was one year left for the term. The board decided it was more cost effective to have a provisional appointment versus a special election. However, a petition to recall Yonemitsu gained traction. Yonemitsu said he was disappointed with his removal because he wanted to serve the school board and stakeholders. “I was looking forward to making an impact,” he said. Yonemitsu said his bigger disappointment stemmed from the fact that he never had the opportunity to meet with the people supporting the petition. He wanted to understand their position better. “They didn’t want to meet with me,” said Yonemitsu, noting it was unfortunate that they didn’t get to know him. Yonemitsu explained that his family moved into the area so that their three children could attend R. Roger Rowe. He said one of his children required special attention in the classroom. “We met with people at R. Roger Rowe, and we were blown away,” he said, adding that impressed he was with the student to teacher ratio. He and his family moved to the Ranch calling it a “no-brainer.” Unfortunately, the petitioners did not know this. Also, serving on the board was a way for Yonemitsu to give back. “We should honor, and we should appreciate the integrity and sanctity of the (school) board and the board’s decision in how they went about doing it (appointment),” Yonemitsu
said. “That to me is why I am here, and that to me is important for you to understand.” Next up was Elise Dufresne, who has lived in the Ranch for the last decade. She has one daughter at R. Roger Rowe. “We love the Ranch,” she said. Dufresne is a principal of a political consulting firm who earned her degree from San Diego State University in international security and conflict resolution. Dufresne said when she considered running for the board, she knew she could give back based on her personal experience. Dufrense has run mayoral, Congressional and presidential campaigns as well as for ballot initiatives. “I want to give back in a manner that I feel that I can contribute,” Dufrense said. She focused on items she felt were school board priorities. In light of the school shootings around the nation, she underscored security and safety. “There are a number of different ways that we can secure the school and secure our students,” Dufrense said. Ideas Dufrense shared were having safeguards such as access systems and coded entries. Working with local authorities regarding safety and security plans should also be made a high priority, she said. Educating students on what to look for was also mentioned. “Our school should be prepared,” she said. Another topic Dufrense talked about was marijuana. She said children need education about it, particularly how edible marijuana can come in the form of gummy bears and chocolates. On the technology front, Dufrense explained
the need for more computer security since students are on iPads. Another topic she addressed regarding technology was offering students virtual reality education experiences for lesson plans. Examples cited were visiting having a virtual interactive experience at locations such Niagara Falls or the Red Woods. “It would be wonderful to have our children have that added level of enhancement,” she said. Fluent in Thai, and with degrees in Arabic and Hebrew, Dufrense said she wished there were more language options at R. Roger Rowe offering students to be multilingual. “We are so globalized and interconnected that our children need to be multilingual,” she said. Dufrense said she thought a bond for the school gym should be tabled due to the economic and political climate. Next was Jee Manghani, who has a degree in computer science and oversees a software company. He said he didn’t know how to reach out to the community about his candidacy, so the forum was a perfect opportunity. Manghani said his family continues to have an awesome experience at R. Roger Rowe. He has one child attending the school with another starting in the fall. Manghani said he is running for the school board for three reasons. “I want to reconnect the board back to the community and operate with transparency,” he said. “The fact that the recall occurred shows that there is a lot of broken trust that needs to be repaired.” Manghani also said he believed there should be a board member protocol.
Every August, before an election cutoff date, board members should be asked if they plan to serve out the entire year, he said. “These are elections, not appointments,” he said. Attendees broke out in applause. “While the board has the legal power to appoint replacements, appointments don’t reflect the community and the community never gets a chance to give input,” he said. The No. 2 reason Manghani is running is to improve the curriculum with more after-school programs focused on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). The third reason he cited was the recent evaluation of the school gym, which came back as good. Manghani said the median and necessary repairs were estimated at $330,000. After the repairs, the gym would have another useful life of 20 years. “Three of four board members seem to want to continue to push for a new a gym,” said Manghani, adding that this would require a bond and he would vote against it. Up next was Steven Hughes who said what attracted him to the Ranch is that it is very community oriented. He bought a home there in 2016 primarily because of R. Roger Rowe. His daughter will start kindergarten in the fall. Hughes earned his MBA at the University of Southern California. While working in his family business, Hughes said he was able to grow the company. “If I get the opportunity to be a board member, I’ll be the eyes and ears of the voters,” he said, adding that he has no hidden agenda. Knowing that his daughter will soon be involved in the community through R. Roger Rowe, Hughes too wants to be involved. “That is what inspired me to be on the board,” he
said. Hughes said he would use his MBA training and the expertise he obtained in his family business if elected. Fiscal responsibility is key. Hughes said he kept what he wanted to say “short and sweet.” The last to speak was Thomas Barton, a professor at the University of San Diego, who earned his Ph.D. at Yale University. Barton and his family moved to Rancho Santa Fe in 2013. He has three children at R. Roger Rowe. Barton said he has worked on different boards at USD. He is familiar with the items that the Rancho Santa Fe School District is addressing. “This would allow me to hit the ground running,” he said, adding that he is already attending the school board meetings and understands the issues of program reviews and strategic plans. “These are things I do all the time at USD.” Barton was quick to point out how the district cannot squander any money. He also said he has a background in business, particularly in real estate investment. Barton said he is an active parent volunteer at R. Roger Rowe and knows many of the other parents. He explained it was essential to have teachers, students, parents and community members all involved at the same time in the conversation about how to make the school as effective as possible. This dialogue will encourage transparency. Barton said when he decided to run for the school board, he did some research on the top blue-ribbon schools in the nation. He discovered the commonality that demonstrated their asset of success: strong parental community involvement. “I hope I can earn your vote,” Barton said. “If I am elected, we can continue to work together to take our school to the next level.”

Mobile dental program aims to keep seniors smiling REGION — For 18 years Dr. Roya Mirkhan has provided top-quality specialized dental services to patients in San Diego. With a large number of elderly patients, she recognized a set of challenges unique to the senior population when it came to dental needs. The idea for ButterFlies Smile® was born out of Dr. Mirkhan’s compassion for her patients and her realization that she had a way she could help them address their dental health and improve their overall quality
of life at the same time. One area Dr. Mirkhan specializes in is dental implants. “I treat a lot of elderly patients for their implant needs due to teeth loss,” she said. “I see how they eventually have a hard time making it to my office and I was getting a lot of family requests for home care for their dental needs. I decided to establish a state-of-theart dental mobile care service to be able to take care Dr. Roya Mirkhan. Courtesy photo of these patients in the best possible way. I can see them even if they are medically anywhere, and treat them, compromised.”
ButterFlies Smile® was designed to address the important social concern of the often neglected senior population by offering minimally invasive treatments at a discounted price for those living in assisted living, retirement and memory care facilities in San Diego. “We are able to eliminate travel time, waiting time, idle time in the chair and inevitable delays that can make a trip to the dentist take as long as three hours,” Dr. Mirkhan said, adding that it is especially helpful for those who
have difficulty traveling due to disability or special needs. “Patients can expect a routine appointment to last no more than 60 minutes, spent entirely with the dentist, offering a one-on one experience unmatched in traditional and or corporate dentistry settings, using state-of-the-art digital dental equipment,” she said. Dr. Mirkhan has been affiliated with Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla and manages a highly specialized private practice Ad-
vanced Dentistry & Implant Center located at Scripps Coastal Medical Offices in Del Mar/ Carmel Valley area. She has been recognized as “America’s Top Dentist” by the Consumer Council of America and “Top Dentist” by Peer Review since 2008, among other accolades.

CARLSBAD — Smiles, laughter, free hugs, posters, crazy socks and T-shirts sporting “I Love My Homies With Extra Chromies” covered the campus of Kelly Elementary School on March 21. It was a day where the kids took time to include, support and make friends with their peers. The only difference is a third copy of the 21st chromosome, commonly known as Down syndrome. Tricia Benton organized the event at the school as part of World Down Syndrome Day, which is held every year on March 21 (3/21). Her two older children are special needs students including her daughter, Bailey, a first-grader. Benton decided to make shirts celebrating the day, but what started as two prints soon exploded into 150, with other parents, teachers and kids sporting the new threads. “I thought it would be really cool to get our school to do it,” Tricia Benton said. “One of the general ed teachers had his whole class make posters. The next thing I know everywhere I look there is stuff (shirts and posters).” Principal Tressie Armstrong, meanwhile, has been preaching inclusion throughout her time at the school. The students have followed her lead and refusing to let kids such as Bailey Benton to be excluded from making friends, playing together at recess and sharing lunch. Another way the special kids are being included is through the Kindness Club. The club is growing in popularity, too, as other “typical” kids have overcome any fear or anxiety in how to approach their special classmates. “It just opens up the eyes of the children to look outside of themselves,” Armstrong said. “My favorite quote from one of the kids was, ‘We have a lot more similarities than differences.’” Benton and Armstrong both said breaking down those barriers for the “typical” students is just one goal of creating a more welcoming and friendly school. Benton said once the kids realize how to communicate and interact with the special needs kids, many of those stereotypes and judgments wash away. However, it can be difficult, especially with nonverbal kids with special needs. Bailey Benton, for example, also suffers from autism and cerebral palsy and born a micro preemie, meaning she was less the 2 pounds at birth. Tricia Benton was told her daughter would never walk, but after years of working toward the goal, Bailey can now walk 10 steps unassisted. “She’s getting a chance to interact more now, and it’s awesome,” Tricia Benton said. “I feel like kids are trying now.” As for the Kindness Club, fourth-graders Hayden Ucker, 9, Brady Jessie, 10, and Malie Kotol, 10, said it is a way for them to help their friends with special needs. Also, it allows for the kids to learn about the conditions of the special needs kids, while making new friends. “We wear crazy socks to help the special ed kids and support them,” Jessie said. “To let them know we know that they are not invisible,” Kotol added.

Senior center hosts talk on improving memory or family members suffer from a form of dementia are more inclined to promote their mental acuity, she said. On a personal level, Randall said she finds her work incredibly rewarding. It means a great deal to her that she can work with people and help them understand how they can improve their memory. “We can take steps that not only improve our ability to remember over time but also improve the quality of the memories we’re making right now,” she said. “When I’m able to impart this information, it inspires me to know that I’m doing something that’s really important and valuable to people.”
By Christina Macone-Greene
RANCHO SANTA FE — Every seat at the Rancho Santa Fe Senior Center was filled Feb. 28 with people who wanted to learn more about how to improve their memory. Lisa Randall of Chunky Seahorse, based in Encinitas, led the discussion. Her goal was to offer a preventative approach to memory. For Randall, it is all about how to plan for someone to achieve their best memory. “What I’m hoping to do is give participants tools and strategies, so they can effectively plan lifestyle habits and memory retention strategies effectively to use in their daily life,” she said. Randall said much of this is based on planning a lifestyle to support memory, which includes exercise, diet, mental stimulation, social stimulation and physical environment. These activities can be accomplished through daily and monthly planning. “Likewise, you can also plan for other aspects of memory that include sensation, attention, emotion and change,” she said. “You could also plan for these things strategically if you’re looking at a planner and doing monthly and weekly day-to-day planning. Another thing I hope to impart is that our brain has a natural rhythm through the course

of the day.” Randall encouraged attendees to have a type of mindfulness during the early part of the day. Additionally, she says have time to unwind and disconnect from things such as elec-
tronics toward the end of the day. “By doing this, we’re really helping our brains and our memories over the long haul,” she said. Randall said the philosophy of her company is

tatistically, here in Southern California, we don’t have hurricanes or sudden snowstorms. Tidal waves are possible but not probable. But we do live in dangerous times, and in undeniable earthquake and fire territory, so our schools are busy preparing for everything. While there is scarce humor in all that, it was an amusing week in my school library, as a very patient staff member upgraded emergency equipment for all classrooms. First came enormous boxes of curious-looking stuff. They included radios, hand sanitizer, dust masks, a 3-in-1 tool, gloves, blankets, first-aid kits and more. And then — oh, my stars — she started assembling the emergency toilets. The what, you say? The hilarity began as she unboxed about 30 5-gallon buckets. That right there got everyone curious. Into each one, she then put toilet paper, large plastic trash bags and what they are calling a “privacy curtain.” She then snapped on a lidded toilet seat and it was ready for action. As these completed creatures began to stack up, the poor woman was ab-
solutely peppered with the same questions from every passer-by. The one or two more squeamish teachers were the funniest. I chuckled, watching their faces, as they learned what these were and how they needed to be handled. “Yes, you may have to close up a full bag and put in a new one,” they were gently told. I could see one silently gagging. Another wore a look of absolute horror. A more cavalier mom took one look and stated simply, “My backside will never fit on that.” Another teacher asked, with panic in her voice, “Who holds up the privacy curtain?” Now I’m picturing a gaggle of 5-year- olds trying to keep the curtain up while teacher visits the potty. Dicey business. Another summed it up with, “The kids are going to flip.” Perhaps, but I suspect when the situation demands it, we will all become surprisingly resourceful. The minute the students spotted the tiny toilets, they promptly began making up names for them, most not suitable for print. I spent all week laughing on the inside, but telling one or another that was not really acceptable conversation for the media center, thank you very much. I will admit, this was an aspect of shelter-in-place that never crossed my mind. An earthquake would cer-
tainly compromise our water and sewer pipes. Any sort of “stay in the room” situation means children, and even we grownups, would soon be hopping around doing the potty dance. I truly hope we will never need our clever, new porta-potties. But, for all the grimacing they bring out in us, you know we will be jubilant they are there, should we have to stay put for a few hours. C’mon. Think about it. If you consider the alternatives, none are pretty. Tying up a plastic bag begins to look fairly reasonable. Perspective is everything.

Regional bikeshare program gaining momentum By Bianca Kaplanek
COAST CITIES — Del Mar became the first city to sign onto a proposed North County bikeshare partnership, approving at the March 5 meeting a memorandum of understanding to issue a request for information to participate in a one-year regional pilot program. Solana Beach and Encinitas followed suit nine days later at their respective council meetings. Oceanside is expected to talk about the program next month. Carlsbad officials have been approached but have not set a time to discuss it. North County Transit District has also agreed to participate. Other potential partners are Camp Pendleton and the San Diego Association of Governments. The program will allow bicyclists to borrow a bike in one location, such as a train or bus station, use it on a short-term basis and return it to the same spot in another designated area. Similar programs are in place in the county in Imperial Beach and National City and at the University of Cal-
ifornia San Diego. Costs to the users vary from .50 or $1 per half hour or hour, Solana Beach Assistant City Manager Dan King said. Bike sharing can help the cities achieve a goal of their climate action plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by offering safe, convenient and affordable alternative transportation options. It would also relieve parking congestion and provide better accessibility to beaches, parks and businesses. Solana Beach City Councilman Dave Zito said the mayor of Imperial Beach told SANDAG members the program has also helped reduce crime because more people are out in the community riding bikes. Del Mar staff members have been meeting with the potential partners for the past several months. Additionally, in February, they discussed the concept with the city’s Sustainability Advisory Board, Del Mar Village Association and Business Support Advisory Committee to get input on what they would like to see in the bikeshare program.

If the matter were not resolved quickly, a decision to impose disciplines such as fines or membership privileges would occur. Association members must be provided at least a 15-day notice of a scheduled board hearing. In addition to the fee schedule for nonconstruction and construction violations, the board unanimously approved the “Nuisance and Special Event” regulation in an effort to stop residences in the Covenant being used as venues for weddings and other special events.
According to the staff report the groups “enthusiastically support Del Mar’s participation in the program because it supports” the city’s climate action plan and promotes sustainable tourism. Staff plans to meet with the Transportation and Parking Advisory Committee and representatives from Del Mar Plaza, L’Auberge Del Mar, Hotel Indigo Del Mar and Summer Cycles, the city’s only bike shop, for additional input on how to most effectively implement the program. The goal of the approved MOU is to collectively agree on a single bikeshare vendor to operate within the North County coastal region to achieve economies of scale, reduce conflicts between competing vendors and provide optimal convenience to users. The RFI, which will identify vendors with the resources to pilot the program, is a mechanism for gathering information and does not obligate the cities to a binding procurement process. The envisioned model would use “dockless” bikeshare technologies and not
require participating jurisdictions to purchase any contract services or infrastructure. Once a vendor is selected, council members will still have to approve participation in the program. All costs will be borne by the vendor. The cities will have to approve business licenses and operations permits to allow the bikes to be used and locked in the public right of way. According to the proposed timeline, the partners expect to select a vendor in April and launch the one-year pilot program by early May. Del Mar has been approached by several bikeshare vendors asking if they could implement a bikeshare program in the city. In response to those requests, staff contacted the other North County coastal cities, which also received similar requests, to discuss the advantages of adapting a regional approach, according to the staff report. SANDAG coordinated the meetings. Encinitas took the lead on developing the MOU and RFI.

In Del Mar, Councilman Dave Druker had some concerns. “I want to make sure that we understand what the business plan is of these providers,” he said. “I don’t want to see a business plan that says we’re going to be the Uber of bike rentals.” He also questioned whether the rentals would be around for the long term or, because they are investor funded, disappear when the funds are gone. In Solana Beach, Mayor Ginger Marshall said she’s
heard complaints from other cities that people leave the bikes all over the place. King said the agreement could include regulations to avoid that issue. But overall, council members in both cities support the program. “I do favor a regional approach,” Solana Beach City Councilwoman Jewel Edson said. “I think it’s the way to go because … there could be issues if everyone has a different program where their bikes are in our town and our bikes are in their town.”

Local philanthropist honored as Peacemaker REGION – Rancho Santa Fe resident and local restaurateur Dan Shea will receive the “Philanthropy in Peacemaking” award along with San Diego Padres Managing Partner Peter Seidler, at National Conflict Resolution Center’s 30th annual Peacemaker Awards April 7 at the San Diego Marriott Marquis & Marina. The duo inspired the visionary public-private coalition to erect temporary housing tents for homeless San Diegans.
The event honors individuals and organizations who have made a significant contribution to conflict resolution nationally and locally, as well as supports the organization’s groundbreaking programming to empower our community to communicate across disputes with civility and inclusivity. The 2018 Peacemaker honoree will be No Labels, an organization championing bipartisan solutions, with members of Congress from both sides of the aisle
working to reject political extremism. Guests may arrive early for cocktail hour to mingle with San Diego community leaders as well as the honorees. The dinner and program will begin at 7 p.m. followed by a “raise the paddle” fundraising activity. The inaugural National Peacemaker Award was given in 2005 to Ruth and Judea Pearl, the parents of slain reporter Daniel Pearl, for their efforts to build
bridges between cultures and avoid the types of conflicts that ultimately led to their son’s death. Past National Honorees have included such prominent figures as University of California President Janet Napolitano, Congressman John Lewis, former presidential adviser David Gergen, actor and activist Richard Dreyfuss and The Southern Poverty Law Center.

grab bag of information for travelers who are looking for something a bit different.
Your new mecca is in the making. Airstream, Inc., which manufactures the iconic and much-loved "silver bullet" travel trailer, is constructing a bigger and better plant in Jackson Center, Ohio. The plant, where Airstreams have been built since 1952, is expanding its 255,000-square-foot facility to 750,000 square feet. This will include a new Heritage Center for visitors with exhibits that tell the history of the company’s 87 years and displays of Airstream memorabilia and historic products. Officials say that the new plant (56 miles north of Dayton) will generate 280 new jobs, bringing the total number of Airstream jobs to 1,200. The plant is set to open sometime in 2019. To see photos of the sleek, new interiors, visit https://www. gasmonkeygarage.com/rvsnew-golden-age-leads-to-

They’ve created such flavors as s’mores, tiger tails, raspberry cheesecake and Reese’s Cup. More than 9,000 visitors have brought $1 million annually to Butler County since the trail was established in 2016. Visit http://www.gettothebc.com/donut-trail.
